Love You Enough to Leave You Chapter 401
I Want My Grandson
Amelia and Tiffany bought a lot of seasonal fruits and supplements before they went to Boris’ house. Once they reached, it was his wife, Haisley Glace, who opened the door.
“Ms. Winters, it’s you. Come on in.” Haisley was a kind-hearted woman and greeted them enthusiastically when she saw them.
“Mrs. Jackman, I hope we didn’t disturb you since we came without informing you in advance,” responded Amelia.
“Usually, only Boris and I are at home. Our children are busy with work and seldom come back. It’s good that you can come over and have a chat with me.” When Haisley saw the fruits and supplements on their hands, she could not help but nag, “I’m glad that you’re here, but there’s no need to buy supplements for us. It’s such a waste.”
Amelia flashed her a smile and remained silent. Meanwhile, Tiffany held her hand and praised, “Mrs. Jackman, we’ve always heard Boris complimenting how gentle and virtuous you are, but I never believed it, thinking that he must be exaggerating. Now that I meet you in person, I know that he’s telling the truth.”
Tiffany’s flattery made Haisley burst out laughing.
At the same time, Tony also came down from Kurt’s arms and ran to Haisley. When she picked him up, he kissed her cheek several times and introduced himself, “Mrs. Jackman, I’m Tony. My full name is Anthony Clinton, but you can call me Tony.”
A hint of surprise flickered across Haisley’s eyes. She planted a few kisses on his face and complimented with a smile, “What a smart child. I really like you.”
Then, she averted her gaze to Amelia and inquired, “How old is he?”
“He’s two years and three months old.”
“He’s already so good at saying nice things at such a young age. He must be a charmer when he grows up. What a cutie pie. You’ve given birth to a good son.”
Every mother liked her child to be praised, and Amelia was no exception.
They were happily chatting when they heard the sound of the door unlocking. Haisley put Tony down and stated, “It must be Boris.”
Once she finished talking, the door opened. As expected, Boris walked in.
Seeing that both Tiffany and Amelia were there, he piped up, “You’re here.”
Immediately, Tony ran over and hugged his thigh. “Mr. Jackman, you’re back! I haven’t seen you for a long time, and I miss you very much. Did you miss me?”
A smile finally appeared on Boris’ face. He scooped Tony up and sat down on the sofa with the boy in his arms.
After playing with Tony for a while, he shifted his attention to Amelia. “Your eyes have recovered, right? I thought I would be the one to cure your eyes. But I guess Oscar was a step earlier, huh? Anyway, I’m relieved to see that you’ve recovered.”
Amelia wore a solemn look and replied in a serious tone, “Boris, I’m grateful to you. If it weren’t for you, the blood clot in my brain would’ve gotten closer to the optic nerve. Even if I had found a suitable cornea, my eyes might not recover then. Or my life might be in danger even if I recovered. I’m here today to express my sincere gratitude.”
Looking at her, Boris remarked, “It was the least I could do. In the beginning, I decided to treat you because of Terrence, but after getting to know you, I’ve taken a liking to you. That’s why I wanted to find the most appropriate solution to cure your eyes. Unfortunately, before I could do that, your eyes had already recovered. It’s one of my biggest regrets that I didn’t manage to keep my promise to you.”
“Boris, please don’t say that. I’ll always remember your kindness. I’m lucky to have met such a conscientious doctor like you during my greatest hour of need. Although some people say that you’re strange, in my opinion, you’re the most responsible doctor I’ve ever met, and I admire you from the bottom of my heart.”
“There’s no need to flatter me. I’ve treated you as my granddaughter all this time. I’m happy for you now that your eyesight has recovered, but it’s a pity that the surgery wasn’t done by me. Anyway, let’s stop talking about this.”
While playing with Tony, Boris added, “Oscar also came to visit me. Are you going to stay in Beshya or go back to where you came from?”
“We’ll be going back in two days, and we plan to sell the apartment in Beshya. If the opportunity arises, we’ll come back and visit you. You’re like my relatives, after all,” Amelia promised.
“That’s great. Since the misunderstanding between you and Oscar has been resolved, you should live together. A married couple should always communicate with each other. Don’t think of getting a divorce because of some trivial matters. You have to consider about your child,” Boris advised earnestly.
“I understand. I’ll manage my relationship well and won’t let you down.”
“I’m glad that you’re willing to listen to my advice. Stay here for lunch today. Haisley is extraordinarily good at cooking. I’m sure you’ll crave for more after you’ve tried some.”
“Sure. Please don’t mind us for eating to our hearts’ content then.”
Hearing that, Boris could not help but burst out laughing.
After lunch, Tiffany and Amelia went back to their apartment.
“Boris and his wife are good people, just like an ordinary old couple. They have no air at all. I don’t think anyone would believe that one of them is an internationally renowned doctor, and another one is the chairman of an entertainment company. They’re rich, but they never show it off. It’s really commendable,” Tiffany expressed her opinion.
“Yes, both of them are so kind. Rumors are truly scary, though. If we hadn’t been with Boris for nearly two years, I’d probably believe that he’s a weirdo who’s conceited of his medical skills,” chimed in Amelia.
During her five-year marriage with Oscar, she was also plagued by rumors, so she knew how deadly they could be.
“Forget it. Let’s not talk about it anymore. We’ve thanked everyone who helped us in Beshya. Let’s stay here and rest for a day or two before heading back to Tayhaven. When we go back, you’re going to face a tough battle. Are you ready?” Tiffany glanced at Amelia and queried.
Amelia smiled at her and lowered her head.
Seeing that, Tiffany grabbed her hand and comforted, “Don’t worry. Kurt and I will always support you.”
“I’m not worried about myself. I’m just worried that Oscar will be berated by his mother because of me.”
“He’s a strong man. I’m sure he can handle it. Stop worrying about him.”
With Tony sitting on her lap, Amelia turned her head and quietly looked at the scenery outside the car window.
Meanwhile, before Oscar could catch a breather, Olivia and Owen had rushed over to his apartment.
As soon as Olivia walked in, she searched the whole apartment, but Amelia and Tony were nowhere to be seen. “Where’s Tony? Where’s my grandson?”
“Mom, Amelia brought him back to Beshya. In two days—”
“What? She brought Tony to Beshya again?” Before Oscar could finish his sentence, Olivia interrupted him.
Feeling upset, her chest heaved with fury. She clenched her fists tightly while glaring at Oscar.
“Oscar, you know that I’ve been looking forward to seeing my grandson for two years. I’m thinking about him day and night, hoping that I can meet him one day. Yet, you didn’t even tell me that you’d found them. If it wasn’t because someone saw her and told me about it, were you planning to hide them away from us, not letting us see Tony for the rest of our lives? What are you thinking? I’ve raised you for more than thirty years. Is this how you repay me?” questioned Olivia.
“Mom, please calm down and listen to me,” Oscar tried to sound as calm as possible.
“Calm down? I probably won’t get to see my grandson for my whole life, and you’re asking me to calm down?” She sneered and continued, “Oscar, you’re all grown up, huh? You don’t listen to us anymore and never take what we say seriously. Not only are you protecting Amelia, but you also don’t allow us to see our grandson. What a filial son you are.”
Oscar’s head throbbed as he heard that.
Every time they talked about topics related to Tony, Olivia would become extraordinarily unreasonable.
“Mom, can you let me say something first?” Oscar asked.
Olivia went over and sat on the sofa with her arms folded across her chest. She had a tight frown and an angry look on her face.
“Mom, Amelia still has some things to settle in Beshya. She’ll bring Tony back once she’s finished dealing with those matters,” Oscar explained softly. “You’ll see him in two days.”
Hearing that, Olivia cast him a skeptical look.
“In two days? Do you think I’m a fool? You’ve lied to me numerous times within these two years. I don’t want to waste my time saying anything to you. I want to see Tony now. I want you to call Amelia and ask her to bring Tony back right this instant. Otherwise, I’ll call the police directly. With the financial position of the Clinton family, I’m sure the police will accept the case. For your sake, I’ve already endured it for two years. As a grandmother, do I still need to get permission from Amelia to see my grandson?”
“Mom, can’t you be more reasonable?”
“I’m unreasonable? For the five years she was married to you, have I ever treated her badly? I was the one who took her side every time, but how did she repay me? She took my grandson away. Because of that, I don’t even know what my grandson looks like. Now that you’ve found your wife, you’re going to abandon your mother? Do you have any conscience? What’s wrong with me wanting to meet my grandson?”
Oscar was at a loss for words.
“Call her now. Ask her to bring Tony back immediately. Or else, I’ll go to the police station. The only reason why I didn’t do this two years ago was because of you. Since my grandson has been found, I want to see him right now.”
“What? You’re not calling her? Fine then. Owen, let’s go. With our wealth and status, there’s no way we can’t handle a woman from an ordinary family.”
In an instant, Oscar stopped her and compromised, “Fine, I’ll call her.”
