All Too Late Chapter 87

Returning to her room, Kathleen took out her phone and called Christopher.

“Chris, are you an idiot? Why did you agree to Charles?” Kathleen was vexed.

“Don’t scold him. I chose to do it,” Christopher replied in a gentle voice.

Kathleen sighed. “Thank you, Chris. But you really don’t have to sacrifice so much for me. I can never repay you for what you did for me.”

“Haven’t you considered repaying me with yourself?” asked Christopher with a half-smile.

Kathleen was at a loss for words.

Christopher gave dry laugh. “I’ll stop messing with you. Will you come to the banquet with me tonight? I’ve told the others. It’ll be embarrassing for me if you don’t come.”

“Okay.” Kathleen had no choice but to agree.

“I’ll pick you up tonight.” Christopher smiled.

“All right.” Kathleen hung up the phone.

Sitting on the bed, she knitted her brows slightly.

She wanted to keep a low profile initially, but she had never thought that the movie would make her popular and actually earn her the Best Actress Award at the Academy Award.

The movie had obtained the film release permit, and its release date had been confirmed.

However, to be able to attend the Academy Award this time around, the director decided to submit the movie for nomination earlier.

In fact, they did not hold out much hope, but to their surprise, Kathleen became the dark horse and the Academy Award for Best Actress.

It was hence impossible for Kathleen to keep a low profile.

Knock. Knock.

There was a knock at the door.

“Come in,” Kathleen said.

Charles went in. Looking at Kathleen, he asked ingratiatingly, “Still mad?”

Kathleen snorted coldly.

“I was wrong. Tell me what you want. I’ll say yes no matter what,” Charles apologized.

Kathleen gave him a sidelong glance. “Don’t do this anymore. I don’t want to trouble Chris. I also don’t want to marry myself off in such a rushed manner. Do you get it?”

“Yes, I do.” Charles nodded. “Don’t worry. I won’t do such a thing anymore.”

Kathleen let out a sigh. “I know. You keep saying that I’m useless. You’re afraid that I’ll go soft on Samuel once I come back and see him.”

Charles nodded vigorously.

Kathleen got upset. “Charles!”

Charles cleared his throat. “Kate, you’ve liked Samuel for ten years. Although you said that you’ve moved on, I’m always worried that you’ll go soft on him.”

Kathleen was too soft-hearted and kind.

He was worried that she would be bullied again.

“Charles, you worry for nothing. I won’t go soft on him. It won’t bring my kids back to life,” Kathleen replied calmly.

It was her biggest regret.

It always would be.

“Even if Samuel kneels before me, I won’t forgive him.” Her soft voice was indifferent and laced with a tinge of coldness.

She still could not be at ease around Samuel, but she was fine with it as she had really gotten over him.

Yet, it did not mean that she needed to get into a relationship with Christopher.

She did not want to think about romantic relationships for the time being.

“That’s great. I’m glad you have pride!” Charles gave her a thumbs up. “That’s my good sister.”

Kathleen sighed. “Quit clowning around. I need a dress for the banquet tonight with Christopher.”

“Don’t worry. It’s already prepared.” Charles smiled at her. “Your assistant will send it over in a while.”

“Have you found an assistant for me?” asked Kathleen.

“Yes. She’s a fresh graduate named Valerie Taylor.” Charles had a smile on his face.

“Okay.” Kathleen nodded in acknowledgement.

After a while, a girl arrived, just as Charles had said.

Dressed in a white down jacket and a pair of jeans, she had her hair pulled up in a ponytail, looking youthful and energetic.

“Nice to meet you, Kate. My name is Valerie Taylor. You can call me Vee,” Valerie introduced herself politely.

“Nice to meet you too.” Nodding, Kathleen went on with a smile, “I’m counting on you from now on.”

Valerie became embarrassed. “Don’t say that, Kate.”

Kathleen smiled. “Don’t stand on ceremony. I’m not your boss, and you’re not my subordinate. We’re co-workers.”

“Okay.” Valerie blushed and could not help admiring the beautiful actress in front of her.

Kathleen is so beautiful. There can be many kinds of beauty, but hers is irrefutable by everyone even if they find fault with everything she does.

Kathleen said with a faint smile, “I’m going to change. Can you help me get the cosmetic case from my suitcase?”

“Sure.” Valerie immediately went to get the cosmetic case as instructed.

To her surprise, Kathleen’s cosmetic case was very clean and tidy.

Everything inside was organized and not messy at all.

So this is how a celebrity organizes her stuff. It’s amazing. I want to learn from Kate!

Kathleen then went to the walk-in closet to change into an evening dress, which was a dark purple gown with spaghetti straps.

Being someone with fair skin and a cool undertone, she looked charming and elegant in the dark purple dress, exuding a sense of mystery.

When she walked out of the walk-in closet, Valerie’s eyes widened.

“You’re so pretty, Kate.” Valerie blinked her eyes. “Shall I take a photo for you?”

“Sounds good.” Kathleen nodded.

Valerie took a photo of her and secretly sent it to Tyson, who was on the way to the banquet with Samuel.

The man sitting in the Maybach was dressed in a black custom-made suit, looking cold and handsome.

Tyson then forwarded the photo to Samuel. “Mr. Macari, it’s from Vee.”

Samuel felt the vibration of his phone.

Taking out his phone, he tapped open his WhatsApp and tapped on Tyson’s message.

Then, he saw the woman he had been thinking about day and night.

So she’s wearing purple tonight.

“Get me a purple tie,” he instructed coldly.

“Okay.” Tyson was bereft of speech.

Is he trying to wear something that matches her outfit?

“Also,” Samuel paused before continuing, “ask Valerie to add me.”

He did not need Tyson to forward him anything about Kathleen.

“Yes.” Tyson was speechless that Samuel actually got jealous.

After informing Valerie, Tyson sent her Samuel’s contact.

Feeling uneasy, Valerie then added Samuel on WhatsApp, who immediately replied to her as an acknowledgement.

“How is it?” Kathleen came up to Valerie.

Valerie was shocked, but luckily, she was no longer on WhatsApp.

“Very beautiful.” She showed Kathleen the photo.

Kathleen took a look at it and said in satisfaction, “It’s really not bad.”

“You’re so pretty, Kate. You look good from every angle,” Valerie complimented.

“Enough sweet talking. I’m going to do my makeup,” Kathleen replied with a faint smile.

“I’ll help you pack your suitcases, then,” Valerie offered.

Kathleen had a total of four suitcases.

“Thank you.” Kathleen sat down and began putting on her makeup by herself, just like she had always done.

Valerie nodded.

While Kathleen was doing her makeup, Valerie helped her pack her suitcases.

After Kathleen was done, the latter was also done.

Knock. Knock.

There came a knock at the door.

Valerie glanced at Kathleen to make sure that she was ready before she went to get the door.

Standing at the door, Christopher looked elegant and handsome in his black suit.

“Kate, I’m here to pick you up,” he said with a smile.

Kathleen stood up. “Perfect timing.”

She then walked up to Christopher.

Pursing her lips, Valerie immediately texted Samuel: Mr. Macari, Mr. Morris is here to pick Kate up.
