Silvia emphasized. “Other than being partners in bed, there’s nothing else between Jayden and me, and it will the same in the future.”
No matter how hard Silvia tried to explain it Audrey just wouldn’t believe a word. “Silvia, listen to me. If you like Jayden, then go ahead and love him with all your heart. Both of you are single, so why can’t you just admit that you like him? There are so many people in this world who end up breaking up anyway. You are not the only one who experienced that.”
I don’t like him. I have someone else whom I love. That man grew up with me and he was the highlight of my youth. After we’ve entered college, he confessed to me and we got together. I always thought that after we both graduated from college, I would marry him and have children with him. I always dreamt that we would live a happy life together. Felix is the man I love, and the one I want to marry. I want to spend the rest of my life with him… And until now, I can still recall the promises we made together. How can forget about all of this and fall in love with someone else?”
However, Silvia had gradually forgotten the promises that she made with Felix Nowadays, Felix had hardly appeared in her dreams, but instead, that beast, Jayden had been slowly replacing him. To Silvia, Jayden was like air, appearing by her side incessantly and invading every inch of her life.
How did it turn out like this?
Silvia did not know why, nor could she figure it out. She was appalled by this feeling. She should be missing her Felix and hoping that he would come back soon instead!
After listening to Silvia’s emotional confession, Audrey seemed to have understood something and said, “Silvia, in fact, there are different stages in our lives, like childhood, youth, adulthood, middle age, and old age… and in each of these stages, there will be someone who we will like a lot. For instance, when you were a child, you’ve probably liked a little boy and wanted to marry him in the future. Then, when you were in primary school, you probably liked a boy in your class and also wanted to marry him. But is this love? I’m afraid not.”
“Felix is someone who I have been in love with ever since I was a child. He was just a boy who I liked when I was just a little girl, but he was also the man who I have always wanted to marry.” Silvia emphasized. No one knew if she was saying those words to Audrey or was she saying it to herself.
She wanted to remind herself that Felix was the person she loved and the person she had always wanted to marry. She must not betray the love that they had for each other.
“But he is gone now. There’s no need to torture yourself for someone who has disappeared. Silvia, why don’t you open up and be a little braver to start a new relationship?” In order to please Audrey, Reagan had told her everything about Silvia, and that was how Audrey knew about Felix.
However, Silvia insisted, “I believe that he will come back one day. He will definitely come back for me.”
Audrey said, “Silvia, so what if he comes back for you? Everything has changed. You’ve slept with Jayden, and you enjoyed having that kind of relationship with him. Do you think that you are still that old Silvia who only loved Felix? No, you’re not!”
Silvia was at a loss for words.
She could not refute Audrey’s words. Audrey was right. Silvia was no longer the girl who loved Felix with all her heart.
Silvia had another man in her heart. Although there was no love but only lust,
she could not deny that she had already betrayed the pure love that she once
had with Felix
Audrey sighed and said, “Silvia, you should cherish the people around you and let go of the past. Don’t miss out on the people who are by your side now. otherwise, it would be useless to cry over them after you realized that you’ve lost them.”
Audrey spoke in a strangled tone, and tears were welling up in her eyes. However, she quickly blinked her eyes and stopped her tears from rolling down. A girl who was unloved did not have the right to shed tears…
Life was just like the script in a movie. When a person stays by your side and treats you as their entire universe, you would take him for granted easily. When this person disappeared, then you would realize his importance… a little too late.
But what was the point of knowing this now? He was gone. No matter what she had become, he would never show up again.
The past was already in the past!
It was already ten o’clock at night when Silvia arrived at the villa. Auntie Cherry
had been waiting for Silvia and the moment she saw Silvia return, she immediately greeted her. “You are back, Miss Turner!” “Auntie Cherry, are you waiting for me?” It was already late at night so Silvia was
a little embarrassed to keep Auntie Cherry up. “You don’t have to stay up for me
in the future. You don’t have to worry about me.
“It’s okay. I’m old, so I can’t sleep for too long anyway.” Auntie Cherry took over Silvia’s bag and hung it up. Then she said, “Miss Turner, I’ve prepared some food for you. You can eat them before going to bed.”
“Okay. Thanks, Auntie Cherry!” Silvia didn’t dare to eat anything while she was out so she was quite hungry. Luckily, Auntie Cherry was thoughtful enough to prepare supper for her.
Silvia only knew that Auntie Cherry cared for her, but she did not know that Auntie Cherry’s orders came from the master – Jayden.
To be honest, after switching to a lighter diet for the past few days, Silvia had started to adapt to it. The more she ate lighter food, the more she enjoyed it. How surprising it was that a person could form a new habit in just a few days!
After finishing her meal, Silvia went upstairs and returned to her room to wash up. While Silvia was in the shower, Audrey’s words were constantly playing in
What Audrey said was right. Silvia shouldn’t dwell on their past anymore. She should cherish the present and learn to hold dear to the people around her.
She understood everything Audrey had said to her, but she did not want to accept it. Silvia was not willing to accept that she was now Jayden’s wife and that she would have to spend the rest of her life with him just like this.
Her wish ever since she was a child was to marry a man she loved and not a man whom she was sexually compatible with
Moreover, she knew too little about Jayden She did not know about his family at all, and she did not know how long his interest in her would last or what kind of crazy things he would do.
At this very moment, Silvia felt like the water was not restlessly pouring down from the showerhead, but from her restless heart.
Forget it, she did not want to think about it anymore. Since things had turned out this way, there’s nothing she could do about it, she would just have to play by ear.
After about half an hour, Silvia came out of the bathroom. As soon as she lay
down on the bed, she received a WhatsApp message from Jayden, “Come The message was brief. Looking at his message, Silvia could feel the
assertiveness and the arrogance in him.
Did she have to go over to him just because he had asked her to?
No! She would not resign to him!
Silvia got under the quilt, pretending that she had not seen the message.
After a while, Jayden sent another message, “Do you want me to go there and carry you over?”
