Read Returning from the D**d: His Secret Lover Chapter 58 – What did he say?
This is all my fault?
Sasha was stunned with a buzzing sound in her ears. In an instant, her face drained of all color.
She had never thought of this possibility.
“What? Nothing to say? Weren’t you acting all righteous just a while ago, accusing me of not taking good care of your son? Why aren’t you saying anything now? Go ahead, ask me more. I promise that there’s a lot more you don’t know about.”
Faced with her silence, Sebastian’s tone became harsher. His handsome face seemed to be the biggest mockery of all, and the sight of it seemed to twist the knife further into her heart, causing every cell in her body to scream in pain.
Sasha squeezed her red-rimmed eyes shut, enduring the excruciating pain in her heart.
“Yes, you’re right. All of this happened because I abandoned him. I admit that I have failed as a mother, but what about you, Sebastian? Are you completely innocent? If you hadn’t brought that woman home when my due date was approaching, would things have turned out this way?” she refuted.
She believed that if she was at fault, then he as a father was to blame as well.
Unexpectedly, as soon as she finished speaking, the man scoffed with disdain.
“Are you saying that it’s my fault? Have you forgotten that it was you who shamelessly wanted to marry me? If it wasn’t for you, would something like this have happened? How dare you pin the blame on me? All of this sh*t started because of you!”
A deafening silence shrouded the entire office.
The sun continued to shine brilliantly outside, which was a stark contrast to what Sasha was feeling. She felt as if there was a hole in her chest, allowing harsh winds to gush in and chill her to the bone. All that was left in there was her bleeding heart.
The pain was so strong that gradually, her heart became numb to it.
Why is this happening?
Wasn’t what I suffered five years ago enough?” Why did I come here to humiliate myself again?
Sasha’s bloodless lips slowly curved into a mirthless smile.
“You’re right. I don’t have the right to talk to you about responsibility. I was the one who shamelessly married you back then, leading to everything that has happened up till now. It’s my fault, Sebastian. It’s all my fault. If I could turn back time, I’d rather jump off the building with my mother than cling onto you.”
Her face had gone as white as a sheet. Even then, she looked at him with a smile on her face, one that was filled with regret, as she told him that if given a choice, she would rather d*e than meet him again.
Sebastian’s mind went blank.
He had never seen this look on her face, let alone heard her say such words.
Why does she look like that?
There was once when she loved him deeply. Even when he showed up with Xandra five years ago and she collapsed in a pool of her own blood, her eyes still gleamed with sorrow and despair when she looked at him.
But now, he couldn’t discern any emotion in them.
She was like a desolate and barren land. Besides her pale complexion, her face showed nothing.
Like a star winking out of existence, only emptiness remained.
Sebastian squeezed the pen between his fingers.
“Oh? Mr. Hayes, Ms. Wand, you’re both still here. Umm… Ian is done with his shower, but he doesn’t want to wear his clothes. He wants… Ms. Wand to go upstairs.”
Just when the temperature in the office seemed to have reached sub-zero, Luke pushed open the door and came in, saying that Ian didn’t want his help in dressing up.
Sasha’s face was colorless and her heart had frozen in her chest, but when she heard that her son was looking for her, she regained some semblance of rationality.
“Is something wrong with him?”
“I’m… I’m not too sure either. He just doesn’t want to come out of the bathroom and keeps asking for you. Maybe his stomach is acting up again?” Luke made a guess.
Upon hearing this, Sasha’s expression changed drastically. Not bothering to continue arguing with Sebastian, she immediately picked up her feet and left.
At the end of the day, she was still a mother. No matter what she was going through, as soon as she heard that something had happened to her child, she locked away all her scars and rushed to find him.
Glancing at the man behind the desk who was staring after the woman, Luke heaved a long sigh.
Sasha reached the lounge room upstairs.
Indeed, Ian had ordered Luke to go down and get his mommy because he knew that his daddy would never listen to him and bully his mommy. If Matteo were to find out about this, he would definitely be angry.
Hence, Ian had asked Luke to go down.
After the latter left, Ian took the opportunity to call Matteo using his smartwatch.
“Hello? Ian, is that you?”
