Gu Lingfei: Married at First Sight Novel Chapter 1499 | [Serenity & Zachary]
Callum said in a low voice, “Tell me who that man is, and I’ll go back.”
After a moment of silence, Camryn said, “He’s someone I saved fourteen years ago. We’re like siblings to each other. He has a girlfriend he’s about to marry.”
She did not mention Dalton’s name.
It was to prevent Callum from doing a background check on him.
She just told Callum that Dalton and she were like siblings.
She was telling Callum to stop thinking nonsense.
“Why didn’t you mention him before?”
“Did you ask? Why would I talk about him if you’ve never asked?”
Callum was struck speechless.
He thought she had a monotonous circle of life. He also investigated her before and found that her life was indeed dull. However, he realized that he did not investigate her in–depth. If he had delved deeper, maybe there would have been a surprise.
Now, he really was surprised. No, he was shocked.
He was shocked by her and thought that she actually had a boyfriend. It was good if they were just like siblings.
“I’m sorry, Camryn. I misunderstood you and did something to hurt you. I’m sorry. Can you forgive me?”
Camryn was silent.
Callum saw her like this and knew that she was still angry at him.
Thinking about how she was willing to tell him her relationship with that man, Callum did not pursue the subject anymore. He took her hand and said gently, “I’ll walk you inside.”
Camryn pulled her hand back.
“No need, I can walk without a cane in my own home.”
Callum remembered about the cane as she brought it up.
When she threw her cane at him, he caught it and left with it. He remembered that he placed it in his car…
“Camryn, your cane is still in my car. I’ll pick you up tomorrow and bring you to the store, then return it to you.”
Camryn’s lips moved, but she did not say anything to refuse.
“You’re the only one at home right now. I’ll only be assured if I help you inside.”
“My aunts are all around. Aunt Evelyn will come over tomorrow.”
After such a major incident, Aunt Evelyn was sure to come and accompany her.
As for her two other aunts, all they knew to do was call her on the phone to yell at her or go to her, store to point at her and scold her for being an ungrateful wench. They scolded her for falsely accusing her uncle of killing her father when it was her uncle who raised her.
They said that her father’s death had nothing to do with her uncle and that her father was unfortunate to have his life cut short, and so on and so forth.
Camryn knew that her two other aunts had a good relationship with her uncle, but her father was their brother too. How could they smother their conscience and say that her uncle had nothing to do with her father’s death?
They went as far as to say that her father was unfortunate and had his life cut short.
Her two elder aunts were close to her uncle, who killed her father with the help of her mother, which meant that they were the same kind of people. Thus, it was not unusual for them to be able to say such a thing.
Camryn realized that fact.
Callum heard her say that her Aunt Evelyn would be coming over tomorrow. Evelyn was the elder in the family who was most concerned about Camryn. He had to come over and meet her tomorrow.
“I’ll leave after I walk you inside.”
He insisted on doing what he said he would, so Camryn said nothing more.
The two went into the house silently.
Callum kept his word and left after helping Camryn inside.
After he left, Camryn went back to the nanny’s room that she shared with. However, the nanny who was separated from her by a board had not slept yet.
The nanny heard the sound of the door opening and knew that Camryn was back. She knocked on the board.
“If you have something to say, just say it.”
