Shawn thought Liam would definitely come, so he had prepared a table full of dishes. But seeing only Celeste show up, and Shawn’s face turned gloomy.
He stared at Celeste, carefully observing her expression.
Celeste’s face was serious, and even Shawn, a seasoned mature man, couldn’t figure out her mood for a while. After a long time, he said, “Let’s eat first.”
Celeste breathed a sigh of relief. Before she got the divorce certificate, she couldn’t let Shawn know, or there would be
In the spacious dining room of the Campbell family, only the three of them were eating at the table.
Celeste had never been close to Shawn growing up. After her mother Caitlyn became a vegetable in a car accident, their relationship became even more estranged. It wasn’t until she married Liam that the estrangement eased a bit, but only on the surface.
