She could not do that… She really could not do that!
Sebastian was still gazing at the tightly closed door downstairs. His heart was empty once more. On the way here, he had imagined many scenarios of himself and Rachel meeting in his head. He thought that she would come back to him as long as he admitted his mistakes. Unexpectedly, she rejected him without even thinking about it.
Her tears told him that she still loved him. So, why did she reject him if she loved him?
Was it because she did not trust him anymore?
No matter what the reason was, he was not going to give up so easily.
Suddenly, a resident came out of the building. Immediately, he charged at the main entrance and ran upstairs. He ran straight up to Rachel’s house. Noticing there was no doorbell, he quickly knocked on the door.
In the living room, Rachel curled up on the couch and cried in despair. When she heard the knocking on the door, she instantly knew who was standing out there. She slowly rose to her feet and shuffled to the door, carefully peeping at the door viewer.
A familiar face came into her sight. It was the face she had been longing for. She wanted to open the door so badly, but she knew that she could not do so.
Taking a deep breath, she forced herself to turn away from him and leaned against the cold wooden door, feeling the stinging pain tormenting her heart
Tears blurred her vision.
Sebastian continued to knock the door frantically. Eventually, her neighbors could no longer stand the noises and came out to chastise Sebastian. Having no other choice, Sebastian sank to the ground and sat quietly in front of the door.
Meanwhile, somewhere else, Xyla gradually opened her eyes.
She was in Stanley’s arms, and the man was sleeping soundly as if nothing had happened.
Xyla touched his calf resentfully.
“I’m hungry. Could you please make some breakfast for me.”
Buzz buzz buzz…
Right at that moment, Stanley’s phone vibrated. Seeing that it was Zack Cassidy who called him, Stanley immediately answered the call.
Xyla had no idea what Zack was talking about but she noticed that Stanley’s face was darkened instantaneously. She realized that something must have gone wrong. Trying as she might, she forced her exhausted body to sit up.
Stanley did not say a word and directly hung up the phone.
“What’s wrong?” Xyla asked.
“Something bad happened,” Stanley said.
“What is it?” Xyla’s eyes were filled with worry.
