Bye My Irresistible Love, Chapter 501 You Seem Pretty Popular With The Ladies
Back home, Caroline was playing games with the kids with a loving smile on her face.
They all looked so pure and lovely.
I couldn’t help but smile. I sent the kids upstairs before I walked to her side, and embraced her.
“Caroline, it’s all over.”
She hugged me back tightly.
“Really?” she asked tentatively.
“Yes, really.” I brushed my fingers against her cheek.
It took Caroline some time before she found her voice. “Charles, you’ve been asking me the reason why I left a year ago. Well, here’s the truth: I had a miscarriage at the time.”
Though I knew the truth already, my heart still ached when the words came from her lips.
“Boris told me all the evil deeds he has done. I’m so sorry, Caroline. It’s all my fault.”
Guilt almost overwhelmed me and made it hard for me to breathe.
I couldn’t imagine just how painful it must’ve been for Caroline, and how miserable she must’ve felt back then.
She shook her head and began sobbing. “Back then, I was so weak. The moment I saw you together with Raina and being intimate with her, I saw her as Rita. It made me think that you still loved Rita.”
She was having a hard time talking because of all the sobbing.
I held her tighter and tighter, and my heart ached for her.
“I’m sorry, Caroline. All of it happened because I failed to take good care of you. I’m sorry that you had to go through that.”
“None of it was your fault. It was me who failed to trust you enough. Moreover, Raina bribed Boris to inject me with an abortient. Our poor child didn’t even get the chance to see the light of the world,” Caroline replied through gritted teeth. Her eyes were filled with anger and sorrow.
I gently caressed her back to comfort her. “It’s over now. Caroline, so many misunderstandings have happened between us and all of it has led to us being apart for so long. From now on, and until the end of our days together, let’s trust each other more, okay?”
Caroline cried even harder, and she wrapped her arms around my neck.
I could feel her tears rolling down on my neck. My heart ached for her. I patted her back and said, “Caroline, I promise you, we’re going to have a better future together.”
“You’re right. We will.” She nodded in agreement,
After a long time, Caroline finally managed to calm down.
I wiped the tears from her eyes and said, “You’re just like a little cat with a smudged little face.” Caroline stared daggers at me. “You’re the cat!” she countered.
I had to nod at her and reply. “Well, I guess I am a male cat, and you’re female one. We’re destined for each other,I see.”
“Charles!” Caroline exclaimed.
I combed her hair back and gave her a smile. “Caroline, come home with me to the Moore mansion. Our kids and I want to live with you every single day of our lives.”
“You still haven’t asked for my father’s permission! He’s not going to let it happen,” Caroline responded adamantly
“Edward will know the truth soon. One way or another, I’m going to make him cast aside all of his prejudices against me.” I answered.
“My dad isn’t an easy man to convince. You’ll have to put in a lot more effort than that,” she countered.
“I intend to.”
No matter the cost, I would never let her go again,
I looked down and interlocked our fingers together. A smile subconsciously formed on my lips. Caroline nestled in my arms and said, “Dad’s birthday is coming up. Why don’t you make some preparations for it?”
“Great idea. I should probably think about it carefully.”
This was the first time that I would try to impress my future father-in-law.
“Dad is picky, so you’re going to have to prepare everything in great detail, and you have to be sincere. Otherwise, he’s just not going to accept it,” Caroline replied with a smile.
After pondering on it, I asked, “What does your father even like? I’ll try to make some arrangements in advance.”
“Charles, you’ll have to make all of the preparations yourself to show your sincerity.” I could see Caroline’s eyes lighting up with hope and glee. Her gaze was like a ray of light shining into my heart, and I couldn’t help but smile at her. Suddenly, she looked down and seemed to be dispirited.
“Charles, how is Grandma doing? Does she still not remember me?”
I planted a kiss on Caroline’s forehead and decided to explain the truth to her.
“Grandma pretended not to remember you, because when she woke up, she happened to hear Samantha talking on the phone. If Grandma didn’t pretend to be confused, that woman might’ve done something bad to her, and you.” Caroline’s eyes widened in shock.
“So, you’re saying that Grandma doesn’t have a memory disorder? Now I get why she was acting really weird that day.”
“It’s really all just a misunderstanding. Grandma loves you with all her heart, and her love will never change.”
Just then, the doorbell rang, interrupting my intimate moment with Charles. When Elena went to open the door, my father marched in, visibly angry.
“Caroline, are you okay?” I jogged Charles so that I could be free of his arms. My face blushed as I tidied up my messy clothes.
“Dad, do you know everything now?”
Charles stood up, still as calm as ever. He gave my father a nod and said, “Good day, Mr. Wilson.”
My dad didn’t even look at him. Instead, he walked up to me and asked, “Why didn’t you tell me that something that big has happened to you? Elena, what the hell were you doing? Do I not pay you enough?”
Elena lowered her head in shame, walking towards Edward and visibly afraid.
“I’m sorry, sir! It’s all my fault.”
“You’re fired! And tell Carlos that he doesn’t need to wait outside the villa. You’re both fired!”
This was the first time that I had seen my father this livid. I hurried to his side and explained, “Dad, no! I’m the one who asked Elena and Carlos to wait for me in the car. They were just following my orders.”
“Mr. Wilson, I humbly apologize. It was I who put Caroline in danger,” Charles chimed in.
My father finally looked at him and asked, “Oh, you did, huh?” His gaze was as sharp as knives.
“Samantha wanted to get revenge on me,” said Charles.
My father’s face turned grim; clearly, he was infuriated.
He sat on the sofa and said, “Mr. Moore, you seem pretty popular with the ladies.”
“Mr. Wilson, I’ve done so many horrible things in the past, but from now on…”
“Stop,” said my father, putting his hand up.
“There’s no more future for you. If you didn’t have three kids with my daughter, you wouldn’t have had anything to do with Caroline! Yes, I’m old-fashioned and stubborn, and I can’t let go of the past. But it’s for the sake of the children that I maintain my etiquette. There’s no need for you to say anything else.”
The atmosphere seemed to become tense.
Since I didn’t want them to argue, I tried to smooth things over. “Dad, Charles got me some coffee that was air freighted from Cuba, I’m going to make a cup for you.”
Fortunately, my dad didn’t refuse. Thereafter, I took Charles to the kitchen.
“Charles, please don’t get mad. Dad is just worried about me.” I told him.
“Yup. I totally get it.” Charles grinned from ear to ear.
“I’ve mentally prepared myself for this moment.”
Once I had brewed the coffee, I put the cup of coffee on the tea table in front of my dad. However, he didn’t seem to have any intention of drinking it.
At this time, James came downstairs and threw himself into his Grandpa’s arms.
“Grandpa, are you here to see me?” he exclaimed with glee. No longer frowning, my father gave the boy a smile.
“Of course, I did, little man! I missed you so much.”
“Grandpa, we’re here too!” Jerry and Jason threw themselves into the old man’s arms, causing the latter to laugh heartily.
“Well, if there’s nothing else, please leave, Mr. Moore. The kids will be staying here for a few days.”
Clearly, my dad was trying to drive Charles away.
“But, it’s already time for dinner. Why don’t we let him…” Just before I could finish my sentence, Dad glared at me.
“Caroline, do not forget how much pain this man has brought you,” he said.
“I’m sorry, Mr. Wilson. From this day forward, I’ll do everything in my power to make up for my mistakes.” Charles turned around and was about to leave.
But then, James got out of his Grandpa’s embrace and held his father’s hand. “Dad, aren’t you going to have dinner with us?”
Charles patted the boy’s head. “Grandpa is not in the mood. I’ll come back another day, son.”
James pursed his lips in displeasure. He ran back to the old man and said, “Grandpa, I want to be with Mom and Dad.”
This time, my dad said nothing more. He would never refuse a request from James.
Charles’ proud expression made it seem like he had won this battle. He then volunteered to help in the kitchen.
To my surprise, dinner was actually lovely. Charles was busy all night long, so he barely had anything to eat.
After eating dinner, he said goodbye to my father and left.
I wondered why he left so soon and without hesitation.
Unexpectedly, someone knocked on my door in the middle of the night. Once I opened the door, it turned out that
Charles had returned.
He pinned me against the door, and I cupped his cheeks. “You haven’t eaten much tonight. Do you want me to c**k something for you?”
He tilted his face to kiss my hand, and replied in a husky voice. “I’m not hungry. But I do want to sleep with you.”
I wrapped my arms around his neck and leaned against his chest.
Although Charles was trying to stifle his moans, tension was rising in the air.
