The Love that Never Really Dies Chapter 390
Meanwhile, it was late at night in Avenport when Sebastian returned to Royal Court One.
Luke had called him multiple times out of concern, but Sebastian ignored all of his calls until he got home.
“Mr. Hayes, you’re finally home! My goodness, you look so pale! What happened to you?” Wendy came out to greet him, only to be shocked by how weary he looked.
No longer trying to put up a tough front, Sebastian staggered his way to the couch and slumped against it.
“Call the family doctor, and don’t tell Roxanne about this.”
“Right away, Mr. Hayes!”
Wendy quickly called the family doctor who then arrived about ten minutes later.
The doctor administered a sedative, and Sebastian was finally able to fall into a deep sleep.
He had collapsed from exhaustion after forcefully suppressing the violent urges within him for too long.
“His current condition is still unstable, so please make sure he takes his medication on time as prescribed by Ms. Rocke. It takes half a year of constant medication just to treat depression, and what he has is far more serious,” the doctor reminded Wendy on his way out.
Wendy could only nod in response.
As if I don’t already know that… But what am I supposed to do? Mr. Hayes has always rejected Ms. Rocke’s treatments. Even now, he refuses to let me call her for assistance.
With that in mind, she helped Sebastian to his bedroom on the third floor, and the night went by peacefully.
The next day, however, Roxanne somehow found out about what happened and rushed over to Frontier Bay early in the morning.
“Hey, Wendy! I heard Sebastian is back! Is that true?”
“Yes, Ms. Rocke. Mr. Hayes came back last night and is still asleep right now,” Wendy replied with a smile.
Roxanne then ran upstairs after hearing that, only to find the two boys inside his room by the time she got there.
“Could you send us to school today, Daddy? You haven’t done that in a long time!”
The sight of those cute yet handsome twins leaning against the couch was so adorable that no one could possibly say no to their request.
Sebastian was feeling a lot better after a good night’s rest.
Seeing his kids looking at him with those puppy eyes of theirs melted his heart completely, and he gave them both a pat on the head as he said, “All right, go have breakfast downstairs with Ms. Dolivo, okay? Daddy will take you two to school in a bit.”
Roxanne watched as the kids ran past her down the stairs before making her way into the room.
“Sebastian, why didn’t you inform me when you came back last night? How are you feeling?”
“I’m fine,” Sebastian replied coldly while retrieving a necktie from his closet.
He hadn’t been to the office for four days, so he had to head over after dropping the kids at school.
Standing in front of the mirror, Sebastian was about to put the necktie on when Roxanne stepped forward and snatched it out of his hand. “Here, let me help you. By the way, could you come over to my place for lunch this afternoon?”
“Why?” Sebastian asked, fighting back the urge to avoid her.
“It’s my mom’s birthday today, but we don’t feel like having a huge party, so we’re inviting those close to us for lunch instead. I heard my dad calling your dad last night, so I’m guessing he’ll be there too.”
Sebastian nodded after a brief pause, and Roxanne froze as she was captivated by his handsome face and mysterious eyes.
Where did he go? Why was he gone for so long? What was he doing there? There are so many questions that I want to ask him, but I can’t seem to get those words out of my mouth after seeing that look on his face… For some reason, I feel like there’s this distance between us now. I know he still listens to me, but I can no longer bring myself to act as I please like I always did. Am I just imagining things?
Roxanne was so lost in thought that she stood rooted to the spot even after Sebastian had left with the kids.
“Is something the matter, Ms. Rocke? Are you going to have lunch here today?” Wendy asked when she came in and saw her standing there.
“Oh, no, my mom will be celebrating her birthday in the afternoon, and Mr. Hayes will be coming over to my place for lunch. I’ll be on my way now!” Roxanne said as she grabbed her handbag and left the villa in a hurry.
For reasons unknown, she even made a call home and convinced her family to have lunch at a hotel instead.
