The Love that Never Really Dies Chapter 218
The very moment she brought up Xandra, she felt her heart wrenching subconsciously.
Sebastian didn’t expect she would bring Xandra up out of the blue.
Xandra? Is that the reason she’s making a fuss for no apparent reasons?
The man finally eased up. A barely noticeable smirk appeared on his face. He seemed to be up to something in his mind.
“Are you jealous?” Sebastian asked in return.
“What? Me? Why would I be jealous?”
“Aren’t you going to leave because of my fiancée?”
His expression confused Sasha, and she couldn’t form a complete sentence to reply to him.
Indeed, Xandra was one of the many reasons she no longer wished to stay around.
However, she deemed it over the top to describe her departure as making a fuss out of jealousy.
The initially embarrassed Sasha got infuriated. “No! Why would I be jealous? She has nothing to do with me! I just don’t think it’s convenient for me to stay around any longer!”
“What’s bothering you? It’s my villa, isn’t it?”
“There’s nothing bothering me as of now, but we can’t be certain things will be the same in the near future, right?”
“I can assure you it will always be the same.”
To Sasha’s surprise, when Sebastian was confronted, he assured her nothing would change.
It will always be the same? What is that supposed to mean? That woman is his fiancée. How are things supposed to remain the same when she’ll eventually move in? Previously, he couldn’t wait to file for divorce with me because he wanted to get married to her as soon as possible!
Does that mean they’re going to move to somewhere else after they’re married? Is that the reason he couldn’t be bothered by her presence and say things will remain the same?
Sasha’s heart skipped a beat.
She clenched her fists as colors drained from her face.
Judging by her expression, he knew she had misunderstood him again.
Crossing his slender pair of legs, he explained himself once more. “Are you sure? Haven’t I made myself clear? For the sake of our children, I won’t file for divorce with you for the time being. In other words, I won’t be getting married to another woman anytime soon.”
She’s always been a smart woman. What has gotten into her mind and turned her into such a fool today?
Seconds after she heard his words, her glistering pair of eyes gleamed in excitement.
“Y-You’re not going to marry her?”
“W-Why? Don’t you love her? Haven’t you been waiting for her over the years? Why are you giving up when you’re merely a step away from your ideal life?”
Sasha blabbered in confusion. Unable to get a grip of herself, it was evident the man’s reply overwhelmed her.
The news of him calling off his marriage with Xandra had taken Sasha by surprise, but it seemed to be a relatively trivial matter for Sebastian.
He looked at the confused woman with a poker face. “Since when have I said I would marry her? Sasha, the only ones I care about are my children! Do you think I can start a new family and forsake my children’s wellbeing like you?”
Suddenly, he was mocking her again.
Meanwhile, Sasha’s mind went completely blank for a few seconds because Sebastian had misrepresented the facts as well.
Since when have I started a new family with another man and forsaken our children’s wellbeing? You’re my one and only legal spouse!
Although Sasha was speechless, she had no intention to return his sarcastic remark because she was in a great mood.
Nonetheless, she decided to tease him in return. “You can always marry another woman and stop blaming me. It’s not like I’m trying to get in your way!”
The confused and helpless Sasha was nowhere to be seen as she had returned to her usual sprightly and sarcastic self. A gorgeous smile could be seen on her beautiful face.
“Ha!” Sebastian scoffed.
All of a sudden, a little girl yelled from the stairway, “Mommy! Where are you? I need you!”
When she found out she was being summoned, Sasha was about to tend to her daughter, but the man behind her said, “You’re not allowed to hide from me in the future!”
Sasha staggered and almost accidentally fell to the ground.
After the conversation they had in the evening, she stopped talking about leaving.
Similarly, she stopped staying away from him as instructed and got along with him as usual.
Since it was the end of the year, Sebastian had a lot of tasks on his plate. He didn’t have time to deal with the family affairs. Sasha was the one who had to deal with those on his behalf.
For instance, she would have to get everything ready for Matilda’s birthday party
“Ms. Wand, I don’t think Mr. Hayes has any intention to attend the birthday party. Why don’t you head over on his behalf with the children?”
Wendy ruled out the possibilities of Sebastian’s reply and told Sasha not to get her hopes high.
Sasha frowned. She loathed the idea.
Although Frederick had invited her to join him, she could foresee the outcome due to her messed-up relationship with Matilda.
Since she played a part in the Emmanuels’ misfortunes, she made the call to be absent as well.
A few days later, Royal Court One received an invitation card from the Emmanuel family. It almost seemed as though they knew none of them would take part in the birthday party and decided to pay Sebastian and Sasha a visit in person to deliver the invitation.
