Twenty minutes later, Lucian’s car slowly pulled up in front of the kindergarten. The man’s expression remained deadpan as he descended from the car and slammed the door forcefully. Then, he strode toward Estella’s classroom with a storm brewing in his eyes.
Roxanne Jarvis! What is she doing here in Essie’s classroom? Didn’t she say she won’t interfere with Essie’s affairs anymore?
Lucian was furious at the thought of the last unpleasant separation and also Pamela’s words earlier. Meanwhile, Roxanne followed Pamela to the office and waited for Lucian’s arrival.
The red mark on Estella’s hand didn’t go away. Seeing that, Pamela requested someone to send a medical kit over.
Holding Estella in her arms, Roxanne applied the medication to the injured area and rubbed it gently for better absorption.
In the meantime, Pamela was watching them cautiously at the side. Pin-drop silence ensued in the office. Just then, someone knocked on the door of the office.
Several people in the office snapped back to their senses and looked at the door in unison.
Pamela went to open the door. Roxanne, on the other hand, tensed up. Her hand rubbing the medication on Estella’s injured area also froze.
“Mr. Farwell, you’re here.” Pamela’s heart skipped a beat when she saw the person at the door. After greeting him respectfully, she led him inside.
Feeling her heart in her throat, Roxanne lowered her head and dared not to look at the door. The office was so quiet that everyone could hear the footsteps clearly.
Hearing the sound of footsteps approaching her, Roxanne had no choice but to lift her head and look over. Not far away, Lucian stood there with a sneer and stared at her silently.
As their eyes met, Roxanne’s ears reddened. She stiffly carried Estella and stood up. “Mr. Farwell.”
Pamela was dumbfounded by how Roxanne addressed Lucian. She became increasingly puzzled about the relationship between the duo and even forgot to explain the current situation to Lucian.
Fortunately, the man had no plan to ask her and only stared intently at the woman opposite him.
“What do you mean by this, Ms. Jarvis? Have you forgotten what you said? Why did you show up at my daughter’s kindergarten?” He asked in a mocking tone.
Roxanne lowered her gaze and happened to see Estella’s injured hand. The scene of Estella being bullied earlier resurfaced in her mind.
At that instant, confidence imbued her, and she retorted furiously, “I’m the one who should ask that question, Mr. Farwell. You yourself know that Essie’s situation is not suitable for the new environment, yet you still insist on transferring her to another school. Look at what happened to Essie now. Is this how you have been taking care of her all these years, Mr. Farwell?”
Her words made Lucian confused. He knitted his brows and looked at the little one in Roxanne’s embrace. Estella had one of her hands around Roxanne’s neck and let the injured hand hang by her side, revealing the injury.
In no time, Lucian spotted the red mark on his girl’s hand, and his expression darkened.
Essie had injured the same hand when someone bullied her in the previous kindergarten. So what Roxanne is trying to say now is that Essie has been bullied by the others again this time.
Realizing that, Lucian shifted his gaze to Pamela and asked coldly, “What happened?”
Pamela didn’t expect him to throw such a question at her and panicked. After calming herself down, she answered, “Mr. Farwell, this was what happened. Essie had a conflict with the other children just now. The children are being too impulsive, so…”
