All Too Late Chapter 210


When Samuel was about to take a sip of the champagne, Kathleen grabbed the sleeves of his suit. “You can’t have alcohol.”

“I’ll be fine. It’s just a gesture.” Samuel’s deep voice was very attractive.

Finally, he took a sip and placed the glass down.

A waiter then walked over, transferred some glasses of champagne onto the tray, and served them to the guests.

Suddenly, Kathleen felt a weight on her shoulders.

As she turned around, she found Samuel leaning onto her skinny shoulders. He whispered, “Lend me your shoulders for a while.”

Kathleen nodded.

With that, they stepped down from the stage together.

“Mr. Macari!” Tyson shouted excitedly.

“You did a great job,” Samuel praised flatly.

“You…” Kathleen scrutinized Samuel. “Where did you get your clothes from?”

“Look familiar?” Samuel smiled. “Charles said this is a birthday present you gave him last time.”

“No wonder it looks so familiar!” Kathleen exclaimed as realization dawned on her.

During Charles’ previous birthday party, she gifted him a custom-made suit.

That was precisely the suit.

She did not expect the suit to fit Samuel so perfectly.

At that thought, Kathleen lifted her head to look around, finally spotting Charles standing somewhere not too far away.

He was leaning against the wall with his hands stuffed in his pocket, looking rather displeased.

Truth was, he did not willingly give his suit to Samuel.

It was Samuel who snatched it from him.

“It’s great that you’re awake.” Kathleen glanced at him awkwardly.

Their relationship seemed to have gone back to square one.

“I… Uh…” Kathleen hesitated for a moment. “I’ll go talk to Caleb.”

However, Samuel did not release his grip on her. “Can’t you go later? Who am I going to lean on when you’re gone? My cover will be instantly exposed if you leave now.”

Kathleen pursed her lips.

“Come on. Accompany me to greet Mr. Lopez,” Samuel said softly.

Hearing that, Kathleen nodded.

Along the way, she told Samuel about her history with Aydin.

Samuel smiled slightly. “Thank you.”

Kathleen snorted disapprovingly. “There’s no need for that. If you didn’t force me to go to Norwal City, I wouldn’t have encountered that episode.”

With a low tone, Samuel said, “I’m sorry, Boss.”

Kathleen was speechless.

She could not help but feel that that address had an underlying meaning.

Soon, they arrived before Aydin, and the men exchanged pleasantries.

No matter what, the truth would always be exposed once Samuel appeared.

Standing not too far away was Jacob, watching the trio with his arms crossed.

Ugh! I can’t believe Samuel stole my opportunity again!

He side-eyed Caleb. “Isn’t that woman your girlfriend? Aren’t you mad that a man’s being all touchy-feely with her?”

Caleb responded coolly, “She’s not my girlfriend yet. I’m pursuing her.”

“That means she’s toying with your feelings.” Jacob attempted to sow seeds of discord. “You should be more careful. Don’t fall into the traps of promiscuous women like her.”

“Jacob, just how shameless can you be?” Caleb narrowed his eyes. “Do you want me to beat you up?”

Jacob was taken aback, and he asked with a scowl, “Are you serious about her?”

“Of course.” Caleb looked over silently.

Looks like Samuel’s having health problems.

Right then, Jacob gritted his teeth and muttered under his breath, “I can’t believe Samuel is still alive.”

“What did you say?” Caleb cast him a side-glance.

Jacob narrowed his eyes and answered, “I didn’t say anything.”

Hearing Jacob’s words of denial, Caleb grabbed the former by the collar, demanding, “What did you do to Samuel?”

“I just drugged him a little to stop him from showing up at today’s press conference. I never expected him to come up with a countermeasure by transferring all his shares to his ex-wife,” Jacob hissed. “Caleb, if I were you, I would do everything to win Kathleen over. That way, Macari Group will be mine.”

Caleb clenched his fists so hard that his knuckles cracked.

No wonder Kathleen said that yesterday. Looks like Kathleen views me and Jacob as the same kind of people.

“Jacob, go home and tell your mom that the collaboration between Lewis Enterprises and the Stewart family is off.” Caleb’s gaze was hostile.

“What did you say?” Jacob was dumbstruck.

However, Caleb turned around and left, leaving a stunned Jacob frozen to the spot.

No wonder Kathleen gave me that look. D*mn it! Jacob has wasted all my effort!

When Samuel and Aydin finished exchanging pleasantries, Kathleen carried Samuel away because she realized he was constantly gulping.

Kathleen knew he had vomited blood.

True enough, as soon as they entered the car, Samuel covered his mouth and coughed violently.

Seeing that, Kathleen handed him a piece of tissue.

He accepted it and coughed a few more times.

Immediately, the tissue was stained with blood.

Kathleen brought over a bottle of water and uncapped it before giving it to him. “There, there. Just cough it out. It’s a good sign. It should be the last batch of poisonous blood in your body.”

Samuel let out a sigh and leaned against the seat to rest.

He silently watched Kathleen help him get rid of the used tissues.

“Why are you helping me?” Samuel croaked.

“It’s for the Macari family. I’m doing it for Old Mrs. Macari and the others, not you.” Kathleen turned away to look out of the window.

Samuel smiled weakly. “Thank you, no matter who you’re doing it for.”

“Stop talking.” Kathleen turned around. “let’s go home. If you want to be fully recovered, you’ve got to continue taking the medicinal bath.”

“Okay.” Samuel nodded. “I don’t have much energy left, anyway.”

He forced himself to come, worried about Kathleen not being able to handle the event on her own.

However, he was obviously overthinking it.

Kathleen had matured.

She was no longer the gentle and obedient girl from the past.

It made Samuel feel relieved and sad at the same time.

“I’ll drive,” Kathleen offered, fastening her seatbelt before helping Samuel with his.

Suddenly, Samuel’s massive arms locked around her, taking long and deep breaths.

Despite that, Kathleen did not move.

After a while, Samuel released her and said, “Let’s go. I’ll get some sleep.”

“Okay.” Kathleen bobbed her head and started the engine.

Before shutting his eyes, Samuel briefly glanced at Kathleen.

His heart pained for her.

He was in great sorrow, for he had deeply hurt a woman who loved him so much—so much so that he did not know how to make it up to her.

Nothing he did was enough to make things right.

Meanwhile, Kathleen focused on the road as she drove.

Soon, they arrived at the Johnson residence.

After pulling up in front of the entrance, Kathleen helped Samuel to get off the car, and they entered the mansion.

She then helped him to the bedroom and placed him on the bed.

She removed her coat and tied up her long hair. “Sit here and get some rest. I’ll fill up the tub with hot water.”

“Okay.” Samuel nodded.

His face was pale, and beads of sweat had formed on his forehead.

It should be quite fun to bully him now.

However, she shook her head and dismissed the thought, quickly leaving to prepare the medicinal bath.

When she was done, she called out to Samuel, who was already half asleep.

Kathleen shook him gently. “Samuel, wake up.”

Samuel held her hand. “Katie, my head hurts.”

Kathleen hesitated, unable to tell if he was telling the truth. “Are you faking it?”

“You’re a doctor. Do you think I’m lying?” Samuel asked while looking helpless.

Kathleen touched his forehead. Indeed, it was burning. “Why are you having a fever again?”

“That’s how my body works.” Samuel started coughing again.

Kathleen passed him a tissue and examined his clothes. She said grimly, “Why didn’t you wear a thicker outfit? Surely you’re well aware of your current condition? Couldn’t you wear a down jacket?”

Samuel muttered pitifully, “No one bought it for me.”

Kathleen was rendered speechless.

Who is he kidding?
