Chapter 875 I Need A Response
“What a coincidence, Mr. Clinton.” As Oscar looked at the woman smiling radiantly in front of him, he had the sudden urge to pull her into his arms. However, the thought of their relationship made him immediately suppress his desire to do so.
“What are you doing here?” he asked in a tone that was a little cold. Amelia smiled. “You don’t have to be anxious, Mr. Clinton. I’m not that capable enough to know your whereabouts beforehand.” In other words, she was implying that she did not tail him.
Oscar snorted coldly. “I certainly hope so,” was what he wanted to say, but for some inexplicable reason, he did not voice those words. Seeing his prideful demeanor, Amelia could not help but chuckle.
“Care to go on a stroll with me, Mr. Clinton? However, if you’re afraid of a woman like me pouncing on you like a terrifying beast, you can pretend that I never said this,” she said nonchalantly, shrugging her shoulders.
Oscar cast a deep look at Amelia. A few seconds later, he somehow agreed to her invitation with a nod.
The woman’s eyes lit up brightly. Her exquisite face became even more gorgeous than before.
Entranced, Oscar could not look away from her. He did not even notice the subtle shift in emotions that flashed across his eyes.
While he was unaware, those changes did not go unnoticed by Amelia, and she could not help quirking her lips.
“Let’s go,” she said as she led the way. Her demeanor and attitude were just right, not overly enthusiastic or apathetic.
As Oscar looked at her figure, he felt somewhat perplexed.
In his impression, Amelia should be clinging to him, lacking the elegance of the daughter of a prominent family, as well as having a particularly unpleasant personality. Yet, he had noticed that she was not only gorgeous, but she also behaved decently and considerately since their meeting the day before. There were no signs of the behavior of a coquettish gold digger at all. Those observations prompted him to wonder if his memory had been altered.
Furrowing his brows heavily, Oscar became lost in his thoughts.
Amelia turned around and saw him in a trance. Her smile grew wider. She had not seen his adorable expression like that for quite a long time.
As though he had perceived Amelia’s gaze, Oscar snapped out of his daze and directed his sharp gaze at her.
Despite being taken aback by his sudden response, Amelia pretended to be calm and stared back at him.
“Come on, Mr. Clinton,” she said innocently while blinking.
Oscar pursed his lips and caught up with her.
“Mr. Clinton, do you still remember this park?” Amelia turned to look at him, hoping to hear an affirmative response.
“I’ve never been here before.” Alas, her dreams were completely shattered by Oscar’s reply.
The smile on her face faded.
“Would you be interested in accompanying me somewhere, Mr. Clinton?” Despite the fact that it was a question, Amelia spoke with certainty, even reaching out to grab Oscar’s hand and pulling him forward.
He merely glanced at her without saying anything.
She then led him under a tree before tiptoeing to look for a marking on it. Fortunately, the heavens did not continue playing cruel jokes on her. Her and Oscar’s names were clearly engraved on the tree, and between them was a heart with a Cupid’s arrow shot through.
“Mr. Clinton, we engraved this a few years back. It hasn’t been washed away by the wind and rain. Do you still remember this? Back then, you were so hesitant to come when I dragged you over here.” While Amelia spoke, she could not help but chuckle. There was a gleam of nostalgia in her eyes. “You were quite indifferent toward me back then, but you would never forget about me. I really wish I could take you to places we’ve visited together. That year, you promised me on the cruise ship that you would look after me forever. As you stood on the bow, holding me in your arms, it was just like the classic scene in Titanic. Although I’ve always loved this kind of romance, I don’t want our relationship to end in heartbreak. So, I beg you, please remember who I am, okay? I’m afraid I can’t hold on any longer. If you really have another woman in your life, I might fall for someone else as well,” she continued.
Subconsciously, Oscar furrowed his brows. As he shook his head several times, vague and blurry images flashed through his mind.
A fuzzy figure appeared in his mind. He remembered that she loved to smile, but the figure disappeared immediately when he wanted to take a closer look.
Clutching his head, Oscar crouched down on the ground all of a sudden. The moment he tried hard to recall his memories, his head ached terribly.
His sudden action gave Amelia a shock. As she bent down to check on him, he unexpectedly grabbed her hand.
“Who are you? And who am I, really? Why can’t I dislike you when I see you? The woman I love should be Isabella, but why do I feel drawn to you? Please, give me an answer,” Oscar said, raising his head and looking at her grimly.
His emotions were easily influenced by her, which was not a good sign for him. He did not like the feeling of things being out of his control.
As the person in charge of a large corporation, he should have the confidence that everything was within his grasp and under his control instead of being led by the nose like he was then.
Amelia was happy, sad, and yet shocked upon hearing his words. It was a rollercoaster of emotions for her.
Crouching down beside him, she gazed at him tenderly. “Oscar, have you ever thought that I am actually the person you love the most? Back then, I nearly lost my life giving birth to Tony. After a car accident, I suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, which led to blindness. Before I lost my sight, I divorced you and stayed in Beshya for two years. You didn’t give up on me and tried looking for me for the entirety of those two years. This time, I returned willingly on my own. Could you really bring yourself to leave me behind?”
Oscar met her gaze and saw tears welling up in her eyes. For some inexplicable reason, he felt a sudden pang of sadness in his heart. He wanted to reach out and wipe her tears away, but a phone call interrupted their tender and intimate moment.
Immediately, he snapped back to his senses, and his face became expressionless.
He then picked up the phone and noticed it was a call from his bodyguard.
Oscar answered the call.
“Boss, we’ve managed to control public opinion regarding the video. Do you need me to delete the video right away?” A cold female voice could be heard from the other end of the line.
“There’s no need to do so. We’ll talk about it when I return. I still have some other matters to attend to now.” Oscar hung up instantly after that.
The person on the other end of the line was confused.
Having regained his composure, Oscar got up and looked at Amelia coldly. “Ms. Winters, I’m fine with everything else, but I simply despise those who scheme against me. You’ve made quite a lot of effort trying to meet me today, but unfortunately, I already have someone I love. My relationship with you ended a year ago. Don’t waste your time and energy anymore. Otherwise, don’t blame me for not showing you mercy.”
He then adjusted his suit before turning to leave.
“Oscar, are you afraid that I’m flirting with you too much? You obviously have feelings for me, but why do you refuse to admit it?” Behind him, Amelia exclaimed, losing some of her self-control.
After a brief pause, she said in a sad voice, “We were once a loving couple, and everyone would say that you dote on me the most. Despite that, you forgot everything about us in a blink of an eye. How could I accept that? I think about you all the time when I was abroad. It’s already been a year, yet you still can’t remember me. I’m not even sure whether my efforts are worthwhile.” At the end of her last sentence, tears streamed down her cheeks.
Oscar’s back stiffened, and the muscles on his face trembled from time to time.
