Chapter 152 Happy Divorce
Apart from the title, the divorce certificate was almost identical to a marriage certificate.
They were at the same place, and the document was similar. Everything was almost the same as
when they got married.
Calista was still in a daze. Lucian had already reached out and taken his copy without another
glance and walked out. The two of them walked out of the City Hall together.
Calista said softly, “Are you going to tell mom?”
She couldn’t bear to see Selena’s disappointed expression.
Lucian turned his head slightly, looked at her deeply, and then said blankly, “She’s not your mom
anymore, don’t call her that.”
Jonathan happened to have driven the car over.
Lucian didn’t wait for him to get out and open the door; he merely got in and ordered, “Drive.”
Today was quite cold. Although it didn’t rain, the sky was gloomy, and the wind was howling.
Jonathan looked at Calista and asked, “Aren’t you taking Madam Calista?”
Lucian glanced at him without saying anything. He didn’t refuse immediately, which meant he
had the intention.
Jonathan voiced out his thoughts, “The weather is quite cold today, and the city hall is quite
But before he could finish his sentence, there was an enthusiastic voice across the street.
Immediately after, a woman in fiery red rushed over. It was Yara.
“Happy divorce, darling!”
She handed over a bouquet of red roses and pointed to her outfit, “Look, I’m dressed up enough,
right? Let’s celebrate you finally getting rid of that cold and sexless marriage. Come on, I’m taking
you to find another flame. You can choose any you like”
Calista took the flowers, glanced at her best friend’s outfit, and said helplessly, “You’re too
exaggerated. I don’t have any plans to find another man for now.”
Perhaps this marriage was too much to bear, and now, she felt apprehensive about men
“You can take your time for now. Go for it if you find someone that suits you. If not, you can just forget about it,” Yara said, then looked at the Bentley parked on the side of the road.
She raised her chin provocatively toward the closed window.
“This time, you have to choose a man carefully, take your time, and don’t let those scoundrels blindfold you again.”
He waited a while, but Calista didn’t say anything, clearly agreeing with Yara’s words.
However, he wasn’t sure which statement she agreed to. Either to the idea of finding another man
or that he was not a decent man.
The car parked on the opposite side of the street was a rugged, off–road vehicle with a bold design.
It wasn’t Yara’s car.
Indeed, as they walked by, Hector got out of the car and opened his arms, asking for a hug.
“Is it too much to ask for a hug at such a joyous moment?”
He had handsome features and a tall and well–built physique. He dressed very ruggedly. However, the smile in his eyes softened his rough appearance.
Lucian watched and let out a cold chuckle.
Jonathan felt a chill down his spine even though the car was warm.
He glanced at Lucian through the rearview mirror and asked, “Mr. Northwood, are we heading to
the company or back to the Everglade Manor?”
“The Everglade Manor.”
Lucian was about to nap as they departed from the City Hall. He had stayed up all night and had
drunk quite, leaving him with a slight hangover.
Just as he was about to close his eyes, his phone rang. Lucian frowned and answered the phone
after checking who it was.

Cade fell silent for a few seconds, then asked, puzzled, “Didn’t I send Calista to your doorstep last aughte? You were drunk. Couldn’t you just make a move? How bad is your sexual dysfunction that

Lucian was speechle
“That happened! Und you divorce? Cade pressed on
You Well, it’s good that you’re divorced. You can go on and be your miserable self. Then you can become the best man when Calista gets married again. You can give her your blessing and wish
her a lifetime of happiness then!”
Cade remarked sarcastically
Lucian was infuriated “Why are you so damn irritable this early in the morning? Are you sexually
frustrated? It’s my divorce, not yours. What’s wrong? Can’t I remarry in the future?”
After saying that, he hung up the phone and threw it aside. The atmosphere in the car became extremely tense, and Jonathan felt a shiver run down his spine.
Calista, who was still at the entrance of the City Car, watched as the car left.
Hector inched closer and she pushed him away with a smile, saying, “You better keep your hands
to yourself. I’m newly divorced. I can’t be seen hugging another man at the entrance of the City

Howevet, Calista didn’t want to go for something too heavy. All she wanted was to go back to sleep
too tired. She hadn’t slept last night, and the impact of seeing Lucian with Lily was still haunting her
Yara and Calista got into the backseat while Hector drove.
Yara noticed she was absentminded and whispered, “If you’re feeling sad, you can cry on my shoulder. The flowers I bought would hide you, and Hector won’t see.”
Yara knew she would be upset about her divorce. After all, she had genuinely loved the man, no matter how much their arguments had been at times.
But now that it was over, there would inevitably be a sense of bitterness. However, she didn’t
expect her to be so dejected.
“Why do you look so pale?”
Calista closed her eyes, her voice weak, “If I say it’s from staying up all night, would you believe
Yara replied, “I believe you.”
But she wore a sympathetic expression on her face. Yara knew Calista was trying to be strong.
Calista didn’t see her expression and asked, “Why did you call Hector to come?”
Apart from Yara, she hadn’t told anyone about her plans to divorce today.
“He came to my store this morning to buy something. I asked him to hurry up, and I casually
mentioned that he should come to the City to pick you up.”
Yara glanced guiltily at Calista and added, “Actually, I had a few drinks last night, and I’m still
hungover. He’s my driver. If you don’t want to see him, we can leave the car and take a taxi right
Even with her eyes closed, Calista could feel the two pairs of eyes in the car looking at her.
“Forget it, we’re friends after all.”
Upon hearing the word “friends,” Hector’s gaze dimmed momentarily, but there was plenty of time
