The Love that Never Really Dies Chapter 358
As soon as Karl left, all the women scurried away too, leaving behind Sasha and Sebastian in that messy private room.
Sasha wanted to leave as well, but was held back by her aching body.
Both her head and hands felt like they were going to break. She was determined not to show her disheveled side in front of that man.
Hence, she sat there waiting.
“Why are you still here? Reminiscing the good times?” The annoyed Sebastian threw her a question while wiping the blood off his hand.
Sasha was rendered speechless.
Just as I’ve predicted, it’s impossible that he came to save me. Look at how cold and impatient he is right now! He has no slightest concern for me.
A moment later, Sasha nodded while lowering her head. “Yup, I’m about to leave.”
Then, Sasha decided to bite the bullet, straighten her back, and walk out as if she was perfectly fine.
Before she could move a muscle, that man came over after cleaning his blood-stained hands. Grimaced, he bent down in front of her.
Oh my goodness!
His action came like a bolt from the blue.
Sasha froze for five seconds before blurting out a stupid question, “What… What are you doing?”
“What do you think? You want me to carry you bridal style? Dream on, Sasha!” he said harshly.
Sebastian had a horrifying look on his face as he assumed that Sasha wanted him to carry her like a princess instead of piggybacking her.
Gobsmacked, Sasha’s eyes went wide with shock.
No, I wasn’t asking for more. The fact that he wants to carry me on his back is crazy enough.
Blushed, she quickly explained herself, “No, I didn’t mean that, I…”
“Hurry up and get up. I don’t have so much time to waste on you. You won’t even make it to my priority list if not for the two children.”
His words made her heart sank. She had completely lost her last shred of dignity.
With that, she got up on his back with ease.
After all, he has clarified that he’s doing this for the sake of the children.
In the end, that was how Sasha managed to leave the place. His last sentence impacted her in a way that she had totally let her guard down.
As they walked, they started chatting.
“Why did you come here out of the blue?”
“Why can’t I be here?”
“What a coincidence! You don’t look like someone who would appear in this kind of place.”
Lying on that man’s back, Sasha recalled how touched she was when he kicked the door open and rescued her in the nick of time.
Her eyes welled up.
Regardless of his intention, I’m grateful for what he’s done for me.
Sebastian had been staring at their overlapping shadows. Though the lights were dim, their elongated shadows were very clear.
While lowering his head, he could also see the little head behind his back poking out from his shoulder to take a peek at him.
“I was monitoring Robert. He’s involved in human trafficking recently.”
“Huh?” Sasha gasped in disbelief.
“Yeah. When I heard that you’re his target tonight, I knew I had to come over. Sasha, I don’t want my sons to know that their mother was sold right under my nose!”
Sasha was at a loss for words.
Right then, it dawned on her that something about him had never changed although he had lost his memory. He was still the same person who would not hesitate to seize every opportunity to diss her.
Just like that, the two incompatible individuals walked out of the alley together and arrived at Sebastian’s black Bentley.
At that time, Sasha was slowly dozing off.
She did not get much rest during the day and became exhausted after being tortured by Robert for an entire evening.
When Sebastian put her down on the car seat, she crawled in immediately and snuggled up. Within a heartbeat, she fell asleep on her stomach like a cat.
“Send me… to the hotel…”
He vaguely heard her muttering those words.
Frowning, he looked in the rearview mirror.
To the hotel? Why? Isn’t she staying at the Blackwood residence?
He wanted to wake her up so badly to ask her about it, but gave up after hearing her deep breathing sound. Subsequently, he ignited the engine.
What’s the Blackwood family up to?
On the other hand, Roxanne could not get in touch with Sebastian that night.
Luke informed her that the latter might be engaged in an urgent meeting with a client. He assured her not to worry about Sebastian and that she should return to Frontier Bay to wait for him.
Shortly after Roxanne had reached home, she received a photo. It had nicely captured the image of a man carrying a woman on his back, walking through an alley.
What a beautiful scene!
