All Too Late Chapter 164

“What do you mean?” Kathleen frowned.

“I’ll persuade my parents to have another child while they are still young,” Samuel answered faintly.

She was rendered speechless.

“If I can only live for another five years as you’ve said, I feel relaxed instead,” he continued, gazing at her.

“Why?” She was startled by his words.

“Because that means I can only pester you for another five years.” He hung his head. “You must be elated that you can get rid of me completely five years later, huh?”

“You are simply unreasonable, Samuel Macari!” Kathleen stood up angrily. “I only left because you were the one who broke my heart in the first place!”

“So you can’t bear to lose me, can you?” Samuel cast her an unfathomable look.

She was at a loss for words.

The man stared into her clear eyes, asking, “Can you?”

“Talking to you is really exhausting, Samuel. It’s full of traps.” She took a deep breath before replying, “No matter how much I hate you, I’ll never wish for the worst for you because Old Mrs. Macari and the others will be heartbroken. That’s all.”

His Adam’s apple bobbed up and down.

“I’d be sad if you die, but not particularly sad,” she continued coldly. “Everyone has to go through the process of aging and death. It’s only a matter of time. I won’t grieve for your death because you’re just an insignificant person in my life. How deep my love was for you before is equivalent to how unimportant you are to me right now.”

“If only I had died in the past,” he said self-deprecatingly.

The woman took a deep breath. “Since you do not require my prescription, I will not force you either.”

Having said that, she began to pack her belongings.

“Kate, I’m going to miss you if I die,” Samuel uttered in a hoarse voice.

Kathleen paused momentarily before continuing her actions.

“Prescribe the medication for me, then. I’ll do as you say and take it regularly.” He grabbed her wrist, but she immediately shook it off.

The man held it again, repeating the cycle several times.

Finally, Kathleen was infuriated and bellowed, “What exactly do you want, Samuel Macari!”

Samuel cast a look at her soft and delicate face that was tinged with rage. “I want to stay alive so that I can keep seeing you.”

Speechless, she shook off his hand and left quickly without a backward glance.

When she stepped out of the ward, she coincidentally bumped into Tyson.

The latter was stunned when he saw her. “Ms. Johnson, are you here to visit Mr. Macari?”

“I’m not here to visit that son of a b*tch!” Kathleen strode away in a huff.

Did they fight again? Tyson was confused.

After taking a few steps forward, the woman turned around and called out to him.

She handed him a piece of paper. “This is a prescription. Get the medication from the pharmacy and ask him to take it.”

With that, she turned to leave.

Bewildered, Tyson held the prescription in his hands with a slight frown.

When Kathleen reached home, Charles was still wide awake.

“You’re back?” He looked at her.

She walked over and sat down. “Mm. Why aren’t you asleep yet?”

“How can I sleep in peace when you aren’t home? So, how is he?”

She knitted her brows. “Nothing major. It’s just that his internal organs seem weak for some unknown reason.”

“Are you worried about him?” Charles kept mum about the secret.

Kathleen raised her head in exasperation. “He is Old Mrs. Macari’s only grandson. If anything happens to him, how can she go on living without him? The same goes for his parents. I may not have feelings for Samuel anymore, but I can’t simply sit by and watch him suffer for the sake of Old Mrs. Macari and the others. Stop making guesses, Charles.”

He gazed at her intently. “Won’t you feel upset if Samuel has a girlfriend?”

“No.” She shook her head. “Instead, I’ll wish him the best for finally leaving the past behind.”

Charles thought his sister might be sincere this time.

“Anyway, I can accept anyone as long as it isn’t Nicolette.” Kathleen stood up leisurely. “I don’t want to wait any longer, Charles.”

His gaze darkened. “Do you mean you want to bring the plan forward?”

She nodded in response.

“That’s not a problem.” He looked at her meaningfully. “I’ll contact Old Mrs. Yoeger, then.”

“That would look very intentional.” Kathleen’s expression remained calm as she said, “I’m thinking of asking Old Mrs. Macari’s help.”

“You’re going to go beg her?”

She nodded.

The next day, Samuel visited the film set while Kathleen was filming.

Although he was the largest investor, he still brought many food and beverages for the film crew during his visit.

Needless to say, all of those were thanks to Kathleen.

The ex-husband investing in his ex-wife’s movie was a topic the film crew often secretly discussed.

They even speculated when the duo would remarry.

Nevertheless, Kathleen didn’t think that much. She bit on the straw while sitting beside Samuel as he showed her the blueprint of Flobury.

This time around, the blueprint was way more detailed than before.

The man had made many changes because she had suggested bulldozing the two mines first.

Naturally, he intended to give her the income from the mines.

Yet, she disagreed, “Just take it as my investment.”

“An investment doesn’t require such a large sum,” Samuel responded coolly. “You’re going to suffer losses if you do business this way. Even if you’re now collaborating with me, you should learn to watch for your own benefits.”

“But I can’t take advantage of you either.” Kathleen furrowed her brows.

“It’s my honor to be taken advantage of.” He smirked.

She had nothing to say to that.

“Do you want to see it?” He suddenly stared at her.

“See what?”

“My body.” The man narrowed his eyes. “Didn’t you walk away angrily yesterday?”

“Are you sure that was what pissed me off?” She scowled.

How skillful he is at twisting the truth!

“I won’t take a single cent of the income from these two mines. Of course, as for the right to use the land, I won’t stand on ceremony either,” he stated in a deep voice.

“Sure.” Kathleen nodded. “Since it’s a collaboration, it’s best that everyone profits.”

Samuel smiled faintly. “Since you don’t want to take advantage of me, why do you want to collaborate with me?”

“As I said, I thought you were the best candidate for collaboration. I can find a way to pay you back if I’ve taken advantage of you, but I don’t want the Corbyn or Morris family to take advantage of me,” she answered solemnly. “Of course, had it not been because Felix was too difficult to deal with, I might have partnered with the Morrises instead.”

“In Jadeborough, I’m the only person who can take the two mines away from you.”

Kathleen peered at him, wondering where he had gained his confidence from.

“Let’s have dinner tonight?” Samuel invited out of the blue.

“Sure.” She nodded.

“You’re quick to agree, aren’t you?” He was a little surprised.

“I called Old Mrs. Macari earlier and said I’d go over for dinner tonight.” Kathleen sipped on her black coffee.

No wonder…

“I’ll wait for you and head back together, then.” Samuel crossed his legs and took out his phone to settle some work matters.

“But it’ll take at least another three hours for me to wrap up.” She frowned.

“I can wait.” His lazy voice somehow carried a hint of affection. “You don’t need to worry about me.”

She pursed her lips.

“As you wish.” With that, she stood up and walked out.

Upon seeing that, the man curled his thin lips into a smile. So what if I have to wait for you here for three hours? I can even wait for you for a lifetime.
