The Love that Never Really Dies Chapter 397
“Who lets you—” Sebastian stopped abruptly.
Indeed, he was furious. He had not gotten much sleep, and it was dawn when he was finally about to doze off. However, he had barely closed his eyes when he heard a knock on the door.
The sight of the woman at his door made him stop mid-sentence.
“Hi, it’s been a while. Oh, did I wake you up? I’m sorry. I came to look for you because… I wanted to ask you, may I take Matteo and Little Ian to the Wand family’s residence today? I… I’m moving in today,” Sasha said nervously, her palms sweaty.
The moment he opened the door and glared at her like he was about to eat her alive, she felt a shiver run down her spine.
Is he angry that I’m here? No, even if he is angry, I can’t back down. I’ve got to persist. Only then will I stand a chance.
Sasha swallowed hard. “Also, I’d like to invite y-you to… join us. Is that okay?”
She put aside her pride, something she had never done before, and looked at him cautiously with wide eyes. She looked like a well-behaved kitten waiting to be petted.
Sebastian narrowed his eyes.
For a split second, he was about to relent.
He had never seen her like that nor heard her try to be nice to him before. As far as he could remember, they were like two prickly hedgehogs and as stubborn as rocks when they were together. They just rubbed each other the wrong way.
So what’s she up to now? The Wand family has risen from the ashes, and she has achieved her goal. Does she feel that something is missing in her life if the kids aren’t with her?
Instantly, the emotional turbulence raging within him subsided. It was like he turned into a completely different person.
“Ms. Wand, are you perhaps confused? Do we still have any form of relationship?” he asked coldly.
“Huh?” Sasha felt like she was struck by lightning.
“Why should I go to your house? I already have a fiancée, so we should keep our distance. Or do you want my fiancée to misunderstand?” he retorted. His harsh words showed his disapproval of what she had said and his protectiveness over his fiancée.
Sasha was dumbfounded.
She could not believe he would tell her off like that and that he would be so protective of Roxanne.
Did he really lose his memory? Otherwise, why would he say such mean things? Doesn’t he know that it’ll hurt my feelings?
Sasha’s eyes reddened. “No. You… Why are you…” she stammered.
“What about me? Sasha Wand, the fact that I didn’t stop you from seeing the kids was my way of showing you mercy. I hope you won’t try to take things too far. Otherwise, don’t blame me if you don’t even get to see the kids!” he snapped.
With that, he slammed the door shut with a loud bang.
Something seemed to snap in her, and tears began to stream down her cheeks.
It’s not like that. That’s not what I meant. Can’t you see that I’m back?
Sasha had never been so heartbroken.
That day, Sasha took the two kids back with her.
After that, she did not return to Frontier Bay, nor did she visit the Hayes residence. It was as if she had disappeared off the face of the earth.
Because of that, Frederick was furious.
“You brat, did you say something to her? Why hasn’t she been here? Don’t you know that I miss my beloved granddaughter?” he asked Sebastian angrily, having gone all the way to Sebastian’s office to ask him that.
Sebastian sat in his office. Before him was a pile of documents to go through, and on his computer were a ton of emails waiting for him to reply. He looked grim and emanated a chilling aura. When he heard what Frederick had come to say, he flung his pen onto his desk.
“If you want to see her, then go and look for her. Why are you here? Why is it my fault? Do you think I have so much free time?” Sebastian snapped.
Frederick was speechless.
After a while, he waved a finger at Sebastian and growled, “If it isn’t your fault, then do you think it’s mine? She hasn’t been back since she went to your place that day. Who knows what you said to her?”
Sebastian stared at him wordlessly. Just as he felt the urge to grab something and smash it, Frederick’s phone rang.
“Hello? What is it, Tim?” Frederick said.
“Mr. Hayes, I’ve located Ms. Wand. She’s in Adonia contacting the Wand family’s previous clients. It was Mr. Brandon who informed me about it.”
“Brandon?” Frederick repeated, raising his voice. “Why would he know where she is?”
Tim replied, “That’s because he’s with Ms. Wand. He’s helping her with contacting the clients since he’s familiar with that area.”
Frederick breathed a sigh of relief when he heard that. “Okay, call Brandon and tell him to take good care of Sasha. Let me know if anything comes up.”
Then, Frederick hung up the call. Without even looking at Sebastian, he left with a grin on his face.
Sebastian pressed his knuckles together.
Unable to control his emotions any longer, he swept everything off his desk.
