All Too Late Chapter 109

Kathleen furrowed her brows.

Samuel noticed the changes in her expression and said teasingly, “I’m just joking.”

It was then that Kathleen let out a sigh of relief.

“However, there is no need for you to worry.” Samuel lowered his gaze and said, “Some relationships can’t be recovered. If they could, you wouldn’t have left me.”

You left so heartlessly, and you never returned.

Upon hearing that, Kathleen bit her lip. “They are your blood relatives.”

Sooner or later, they will forgive you.

Samuel glanced to the side. “Kathleen, you don’t have to worry about me. I’m prepared to die alone.”

There was a short pause before Kathleen responded, “You won’t die alone.”

Samuel looked at her pointedly and questioned, “Why do you say that?”

“You already know the answer. You don’t have to ask,” Kathleen shot him and emotionless glance.

However, he was indeed clueless.

“Enjoy your meal.” She did not want to continue the conversation. After she said that, she turned around and left.

She actually wanted to tell Samuel that he still had Nicolette by his side.

No matter what, as time passes, everybody will forget whatever Nicolette has done. When that happens, Samuel will definitely bring her back, and the two of them will get to be together openly. Why must he play the pity card in front of me?

Kathleen quickly retired to the kitchen.

Mila saw her come in. She peered at her and asked, “What’s wrong?”

“Nothing.” Kathleen pursed her lips. “Mdm. Hunt, how many more dishes do I have to serve?”

“We only have the dessert left. It’ll be done soon,” Mila replied with a smile.

“Okay.” Kathleen nodded, still in deep thought.

After a while, John entered the kitchen. “Kate, Mr. Macari has left.”

He left?

Kathleen was momentarily stunned when she heard that.

She got to her feet and exited the kitchen.

Samuel’s seat was indeed empty.

As she got closer, she found that he had indeed finished his plate of mac and cheese.

Why did he eat so fast? Didn’t he say that he can’t eat fast because of his weak stomach?

Just then, she spotted a note under the plate.

To Kathleen: The mac and cheese was delicious. Thank you. I am unsure why you got angry when I said that I would die alone. I wasn’t blaming you. I just didn’t want you to misunderstand. I chose to be alone. It has nothing to do with anyone. From: Samuel.


Kathleen crumpled the note. He says he doesn’t blame me, but I think he does! Why else would he leave a note?

“Kate, what’s the matter?” Just then, Wynnie walked over to her.

Kathleen was stunned for a moment, but she quickly put away the note and shook her head. “Nothing,” she said.

Wynnie patted Kathleen on the shoulder. “Don’t let him get to you. He’s been really ill-tempered this past year. We don’t want to be bothered by him anymore.”

“Mrs. Macari.” Kathleen hesitated for a moment and said, “Samuel is an adult. He’s free to be with whoever he wants.”

Hearing that, Wynnie cast a meaningful gaze at her. “If he dates Nicolette, are you fine with that?”

Kathleen was taken aback. “There’s nothing between us anymore.”

In other words, she was implying that Samuel was free to date anyone, and she had no right to stop him.

Wynnie sighed softly and said, “Well then, he’ll just stay single.”

Kathleen was at a loss for words.

She was of the opinion that Wynnie and the others would compromise eventually.

After all, they couldn’t bear to see Samuel alone.

“Why don’t you introduce a girl to him?” Kathleen said coldly.

Wynnie did not know how to react.

“I…” Kathleen muttered awkwardly.

“No way.” Wynnie shook her head. “I can’t accept anyone else as my daughter-in-law.”

Kathleen flushed.

After the meal, everybody got ready to leave.

Kathleen walked them to the exit.

Emily smiled as she asked her, “Kate, when are you going to visit us?”

After a short pause, Kathleen uttered, “I…”

Just then, Charles came to Kathleen’s rescue. “Ms. Staines, we’ll visit when we have the time.”

“Sure!” Emily flashed him a smile. “I’ll be waiting.”

With that, Emily got into the car.

Then, Aaron got into the driver’s seat and left with her.

Kathleen turned to Diana. “Goodbye, Grandma.”

Diana smiled softly. “Do visit often. That house will forever be your home.”

“Okay.” Kathleen nodded.

Calvin, Wynnie, and Diana got into the car and left.

After that, Kathleen turned to Charles and Christopher. “I’ve got a show to record. You two should leave first.”

“Okay, we won’t bother you,” Christopher replied with a grin.

Kathleen didn’t say anything to Charles. She merely turned around and reentered the shop.

Charles looked rather abashed. “My sister is angry.”

“Kate is not a petty person.” Christopher chuckled.

“Yes, she is. She’s mad that I came without informing her. Not to mention, I came with you,” Charles elaborated, feeling upset.

Christopher responded, “You can just explain it to her in the future.”

“Mr. Morris, you certainly are…” After a moment’s hesitation, Charles went on, “If you were as thick-skinned as Samuel, my sister would have fallen for you a long time ago.”

His words caught Christopher by surprise.

“Look at how good Samuel is at using reverse psychology and playing the pity card to gain Kathleen’s favor today!” Charles growled, “He knows that my sister has a soft heart.”

That b*stard! He is pulling all his despicable tricks to make Kathleen fall for him again.

Christopher said coldly, “Kate might know what he’s up to.”

“So what if she knows?” Charles shot Christopher a strange look. “You should take more initiatives.”

Christopher explained, “Kate has repeatedly told me that she is not interested in dating at the moment. If I ignore her feelings and continue making my moves on her, she might grow to hate me.”

Charles observed him solemnly. “You are such a gentleman.”

In the end, your thoughtfulness would be a wasted effort, and you’ll regret it!

Emily called Christopher in the car.

“Have you left the restaurant?” She smiled faintly. “I thought you would wait until the recording ends and invite Kate to grab a bite.”

Christopher replied, “No, she’s exhausted.”

“As an elder, I know I shouldn’t intervene in your affairs, young man.” Emily grinned and said, “I trust you can settle it on your own.”

With that, she ended the call.

Just then, Aaron mumbled coldly, “Kathleen doesn’t like Christopher.”

Emily replied calmly to that, “I know. I’ve seen how Kathleen looked like when she was in love with Samuel. Samuel used to be her whole world.”

“Since you know that she doesn’t like Christopher, why are you telling everyone that she is Christopher’s fiancée?” Aaron expressed his displeasure.

Right then, Emily’s phone beeped.

Glancing at the screen, she said, “Kathleen just sent me a text and explained everything. You are the one overthinking things and jumping to conclusions.”

Aaron snorted in response.

“Besides, can’t you tell that your son really likes Kathleen?” Emily said solemnly, “Christopher was the one who announced Kathleen as his fiancée. Even Kathleen was clueless.”

“She was clueless? Then, why didn’t she come clean?” Aaron frowned.

“Well, what do you expect her to say?” She said coldly, “Your son made the announcement. If she clears things up, it will ruin the Morris family’s reputation. If that happens, you’ll blame her for being ungrateful.”

“No, I won’t.” Aaron felt speechless. “I’m just worried about our son. I don’t want him to be deceived.”

“I know, so I don’t want to bicker with you.” Emily said softly, “Our son really likes her. It doesn’t matter whom she had been married to as long as our son likes her.”
