Chapter 1027 She Has Given Up On You
The look on Lucian’s face grew solemn the moment he heard that. How does Roxanne feel about me? I’ve never thought about that before…
According to her, she has always treated me like a complete stranger. However, I can tell from her attitude toward me that she sees me as more than a stranger. Could it be that she has started to develop feelings for me after my attempts at wooing her?
Lucian let out a wry chuckle at the irony of that thought. I had assumed Roxanne would feel touched by my efforts, but her response suggested otherwise. In fact, she has been acting as though my actions are causing her a lot of trouble. She probably wished I would just leave her alone, huh?
Jonathan’s heart sank as well when he saw Lucian’s expression grow increasingly cold. After a few minutes of awkward silence, he said, “It’s possible that Dr. Jarvis has completely given up on you.”
Even after racking his brain, Jonathan could not see any issues with his methods. He figured the problem must’ve been with Roxanne’s feelings instead. Jonathan could clearly feel the tension rising in the office, but he decided to continue with his analysis anyway.
“If I were to put myself in her shoes, I wouldn’t be able to forgive you for what happened six years ago either. Dr. Jarvis had been living overseas for the past six years, so why did she return all of a sudden? I believe it’s because she has let go of what happened in the past.”
Now that Jonathan has mentioned it, Roxanne did claim that we’re just strangers when she first returned to the country…
As though Lucian’s icy-cold aura had affected the air around him, Jonathan felt a shiver down his spine when he was done explaining his thoughts.
He quickly corrected himself by saying, “T-This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, though! If Dr. Jarvis has completely given up on you, then the process to win her back will be a lot simpler!”
It wasn’t until Jonathan met Lucian’s icy-cold gaze that he realized he had said something he shouldn’t have again.
What am I saying? There’s no way it’s going to be simpler! Given Lucian’s situation, it’s obvious that the difficulty level is through the roof! Honestly, if I weren’t part of the reason he ended up like this, I probably would’ve taken off long ago! Whatever, I’ve given him far too much advice to back out now. I can’t just sit idly by and watch Lucian fail like this!
Jonathan cleared his throat and said, “It’s also possible that my suggestions weren’t good enough.”
Lucian simply arched an eyebrow at him in response.
Feeling relieved that he was finally making positive progress, Jonathan continued, “Every woman behaves differently. What other women like may not necessarily appeal to Dr. Jarvis. The most important thing right now is to focus on what she likes.”
Lucian remained silent and motioned for him to keep going.
“In order to win Dr. Jarvis over, we’ll need to do more research and find out what she truly wants,” Jonathan went on.
Lucian let out a sarcastic snicker, and Jonathan went silent immediately after that.
“Forget it,” Lucian said emotionlessly.
I’ve spent way too much time and effort on Roxanne. I thought I was doing a great job by supporting her interest in medicine. I even helped secure her partnership with Damaris Group and delivered the medicinal herbs that the research institute needed. I did so much for her, yet she didn’t even bother to say thanks. All things considered, Jonathan is likely right about her giving up on me completely.
