Just as Nathan was about to follow Kate out, she immediately rejected him. “No need for that. I can go back by myself.” After that, she left without a backward glance.
Looking at her leaving back, he closed his eyes resignedly. Can she still not forgive me? “What’s the problem?” Olivia looked at him. With an aggrieved face, he glanced at her. “Am I truly that unforgivable?”
“Give her some time.” With that, she added, “She is the kind of person that if is in a bad mood, the more impeccable she becomes. You can see that she was like this when she left just now. Did you two have a bad talk?”
“I mentioned Melanie,” he answered. Olivia was shocked to hear that. “Why did you mention her?”
Before Nathan could answer, Eugene spoke. “Olivia, you should eat first. We can talk while eating.” At the same time, he looked at Nathan, but his tone was much more imposing than when he spoke to Olivia. “If you don’t want to go, at least allow her to sit down and eat.”
Nathan gave him a reply and quietly found a chair to sit down on. Olivia knew that Eugene was concerned about her, but she could see that he had frightened Nathan with his tone. “You can eat first if you are hungry. I’m not hungry yet.”
Eugene furrowed his brows. “What do you mean you’re not hungry yet? Look at the time. Hurry up and eat. Otherwise, it’ll get cold later on.”
Therefore, she sat down resignedly and opened the lunch box to see that Kate bought all her favorite food. First, Olivia went for the spicy chicken. Then, she turned toward the motionless Nathan. “Aren’t you eating?”
“I’m not. I ate just now when I came here.” He wasn’t in the mood to eat. She didn’t force him as she sent another spoonful of food into her mouth. “Why did you mention Melanie?”
“I didn’t mention her on purpose. I heard that you two ran into her and was worried that Katie might be taken advantage of, so I asked. She seems to be upset about it.”
Olivia rolled her eyes at him. “You could have just asked me. She finally was able to forget about her, but you went and mentioned her again. No wonder she thinks that you still miss that woman constantly.”
He nodded his head in agreement. “She misunderstood that I was worried about Melanie. Also, she thought that I wanted to find those men who helped Melanie because I want to fight them for her. Do you really think I’m worried about her? I already can’t wait to kill her myself.”
“Alright, alright. You should not hurry. This is not something you should rush. In fact, she does not mean what she said. Most of it is because of the contradictions she had inside her heart. Now, she needs time to clear her mind, so you shouldn’t force her too much.”
Nathan looked at her and hesitated for a while before asking a question that he wanted to ask long ago. “Is she really in a relationship with Jasper?” She glanced at him silently, so he immediately clapped his hands together and put on a pleading face. “Olivia, please tell me. This has been itching my heart the whole day.”
She sighed and answered, “If she could start over with someone else, she wouldn’t have liked you blindly for so many years.” Listening to her, Nathan felt an ache inside his heart before revealing a smile. “That’s great. That’s great.”
However, just as he was celebrating, Olivia added, “But it doesn’t mean that she won’t do it in the future. In my opinion, Jasper really cares about her. Not only did he introduce a lot of clients to her, he also stood by her side unconditionally whenever someone bullies her. All a woman needs is someone to support them thoroughly, but you always reason with her.
Even a three-year-old child could understand your reasoning, so how could she not? She just wanted to see how far you would go to support her, but you’ve really disappointed her. She likes you, but you really hurt her too much.
To be honest, there was a period of time when I did not want her to forgive you. She might seem heartless to you, as if she doesn’t know how to be sad but actually, she is just pretending.”
