Love You Enough to Leave You Chapter 378
Reunited After Two Years
Ever since a compatible cornea was found for Amelia, time passed quickly. In the blink of an eye, half a year went by. James sent word from Anglandur that the young donor’s condition had worsened and only had a few days left. Hence, he instructed Oscar to take Amelia there at once. With all the equipment in place, the operation to transplant the cornea would commence upon Amelia’s arrival.
Together with Hugo, Oscar drove to the airport and waited for the flight at the terminal.
Meanwhile, Derrick who had been camping out at the airport walked up to Oscar. He suggested with a smile, “Mr. Clinton, I hope you don’t mind taking another person with you to Beshya. While you pick up your lady, I hope to pick up mine. Since mine has accompanied yours for the last two years, I think it’s time for her to return to my side.”
Oscar pointed to the seat next to him. “Have a seat.”
After Derrick sat down, both of them didn’t talk to each other. It wasn’t until they had their tickets checked during boarding that they realized they were seated next to each other.
When Oscar saw Derrick sitting beside him, his gaze sharpened. “Derrick, what are you up to?”
Shrugging, Derrick grinned. “I’m just happy that you can meet your ex-wife again while I’ll be reunited with my woman. Isn’t this a win-win situation?”
“Derrick, regardless of what you plan to do. I hope that you will not interfere in my affairs with Amelia. We will resolve it ourselves,” Oscar warned.
Derrick smiled. “Mr. Clinton, I believe we share the same goal. Aren’t we just looking to be with the woman we love?”
After shooting him a glance, Oscar shut his eyes.
Both of them spent the rest of the flight in silence.
After disembarking, Oscar prepared to get into a car that Hugo had arranged for him. As for Derrick, he too had a car prepared in advance. Before getting in, Derrick remarked, “Mr. Clinton, let’s see who will reach there first.” The moment he finished, both of them got into their respective cars.
Oscar ordered, “Drive.”
As the driver drove dutifully, it took them an hour and a half to reach the neighborhood where Amelia was staying in.
After coming to a stop, the driver informed, “Mr. Clinton, we have arrived.”
Opening his eyes, Oscar looked out the window. Staring at the same neighborhood he visited two years ago, he felt a surreal sensation.
Back then, he had run into a lady that looked like Amelia. At that moment, he had thought that luck had brought his wife back to him. But in the end, it was nothing more than a misunderstanding. It wasn’t until a year and a half later that he realized that he had missed her.
Putting his hand on his chest, Oscar could feel the pounding of his heart where a flurry of mixed emotions flooded into it. He felt both anxious and excited. But most importantly, he was filled with anticipation to be able to see Amelia again.
Silly gal, I’m here now. This time, I will never let you slip out of my hands again.
“Mr. Clinton, are you getting off?” the driver asked.
However, Oscar simply continued observing the neighborhood. It wasn’t until an unforgettable silhouette appeared that he opened the door and dashed out.
Given that he had made prior arrangements with the neighborhood security guards, none of them got in his way.
When he was just a few steps away from her, he came to a halt. His razor-sharp gaze turned into a gentle look in a flash. Staring at her longingly, he realized she hadn’t changed at all during the two years they were apart.
The moment Tiffany saw Oscar appear out of nowhere, she was filled with surprise. Putting a finger to her lips to shush him, she turned to Amelia and said, “Babe, I suddenly remembered that I left my phone upstairs. Can you wait here for me while I go get it?”
Amelia replied with a smile, “Go on. I’ll be here.”
“Are you sure you’ll be fine alone?”
“Just go. I promise I won’t go anywhere.”
“All right, I’ll be back in a jiffy.” Just as she spoke, she looked in Oscar’s direction and mouthed the words, “Oscar, don’t frighten her.”
With that, Tiffany walked away to give them some privacy.
The moment Tiffany returned to the house, she saw Kurt at the entrance. After looking at him with mixed emotions, she turned her attention to the two outside the apartment.
“Kurt, I’m sure you can see for yourself that he has found us. A-Are you all right?” Tiffany gave Kurt an apologetic look. Despite her usual eloquence, she didn’t know what to say to comfort him.
Meanwhile, with his lips pursed and fists clenched, Kurt was staring intently at Amelia outside.
“Kurt, I’m sorry. I think destiny has no plans for the both of you. Now that Oscar is here, your efforts in pursuing her for the last two years are—” Gone. Tiffany didn’t finish her sentence out loud.
After shifting his gaze away from Amelia, Kurt turned around and headed upstairs. Feeling concerned, Tiffany ran after him and asked, “Kurt, are you all right? Are you really okay?”
Soon, their figures disappeared from the stairway.
Back outside the building, Oscar strode up to Amelia step by step. When he was inches away from her, he embraced her, giving her a fright. Just when she was about to struggle, she caught a whiff of an unforgettable scent. Right after that, her eyes glistened in surprise, and tears began to well up in them.
“O-Oscar?” she asked in disbelief.
“Yes, it’s me. I’m here. Next time, I will never let go of your hand again,” Oscar reassured her with a deep voice while leaning his head against hers.
All of a sudden, Amelia’s eyes reddened, and tears began to flow uncontrollably. Oscar’s heart ached when he saw her suppressing her sobs. Just when he tried to wipe away her tears, she pushed him away unexpectedly and turned around to walk away. Due to her inability to navigate, she tripped on herself, causing her to fall onto the ground.
“Amelia!” Jolted by the sight, Oscar rushed over. Kneeling down, he examined her for injures and noticed that she had scraped her elbow. He carried her up in his arms and asked, “Does it hurt?”
At that moment, Amelia resigned to closing her eyes and burying her face in his chest. Lowering his gaze at her, Oscar couldn’t help but break into a smile as he carried her into the elevator.
“Which floor is it?” he asked patiently.
However, Amelia simply snuggled in his arms without saying a word.
“If you don’t tell me, I’ll kiss you right here in the elevator.”
Finally, she raised her head and looked at Oscar with her dark listless eyes. The look in her eyes seemed to be asking him why he had become so shameless after two years apart.
Even though not a single word was said, Oscar could somehow read her mind. Perhaps, it was the result of the invisible bond that both of them shared.
“Which floor? Or else, I’m really going to kiss you,” Oscar repeated with a chuckle.
“The tenth floor.”
After pressing the elevator button, Oscar’s mood improved dramatically.
On their way up, Oscar couldn’t peel his eyes away from Amelia. In fact, he could barely hide the raging passion in his eyes.
After exiting the elevator, Oscar headed to the door with Amelia in his arms. Coincidentally, Amelia Hutton opened her door and walked out. The moment she saw Oscar, memories from a year and a half ago came flooding back into her mind.
“Hello, aren’t you the man who came here more than a year ago?” Amelia Hutton asked warmly as she approached them. After all, Oscar and Derrick’s features were the kind that was hard to forget. When Amelia Hutton first saw Oscar, she had a good impression of him. However, since it was a chance encounter, she didn’t think too much about getting his number.
At the same time, when Oscar saw Amelia Hutton, who closely resembled Amelia Winters, he couldn’t help but feel a jolt in his heart. Nevertheless, all he did was nod at her plainly.
Instead, it was Amelia Winters who raised her head and asked, “Is that Amelia?”
Only then did Amelia Hutton notice Amelia Winters. When she saw Oscar carrying Amelia intimately, the look in her eyes changed for a fleeting moment.
“Amy, who is this?” Amelia Hutton asked.
Staring at the two similar-looking faces, Oscar lowered his head and asked, “Do you know each other?”
Blinking, Amelia Winters replied, “Let’s talk inside.”
Nodding cordially at Amelia Hutton, Oscar suggested, “Let’s go in first, as Amelia has scraped herself.”
With that, he headed toward the apartment entrance with Amelia in his arms. Suppressing the jealousy within her, Amelia Hutton followed them from behind.
