Chapter 102: His Love And Hatred
Lucas knew about Ayla’s decision and he had no plans to stop her.
Sooner or later, she was bound to go back no matter what he might say, and he believed that she would eventually come back to him.
And once Ayla saw how intimate Brian and Anna were, she would understand.
“I’m sorry, Lucas.Have I disappointed you for doing this?”
The two of them were sitting on the sofa in the living room, drinking beer.
“Lala, no matter what decision you make, I will always be there to support you.Perhaps you should really go back to A City and see how things are going.It’s been over two years since you left the city.I’m sure that a lot of things have changed ever since.”
Lucas kept drinking.
Nobody understood how he felt for Ayla, but he never forced himself on her.He was still a man, and he also had sexual urges.Despite that fact, he had never done anything bad to her.Because he knew that he was all she had, and he never wanted to hurt her.And instead of harming her, he’d rather be with her.
Even if he could only stare at her like this, it was enough for him.
“Thank you so much, Lucas.With you by my side, I’ve never felt alone.I’ve never had any relatives since I was a child, and Toby was the only person I could rely on.But even so, he never really belonged to me.”
Ayla drank so much that she had lost count of how many glasses she had finished.
At this point, she was probably intoxicated.
The man she once loved deeply was now married to another woman.
And the other man she fell in love with forced her to abort her child and drove her away, and even then, she didn’t regret anything.
Perhaps, her love for Toby was based on dependence, and her love for Brian was something much more meaningful.
And so, now that she was going back, she must face two kinds of mentalities, and she had two different feelings.
“Lala, you’ve drank too much.”
Lucas wanted to take the glass away from her, but Ayla refused.
“I’m not drunk.”
She seldom drank beer or any type of alcohol.
Whenever she wanted to drink, it only meant that she was in a terrible mood and under a lot of stress.
After all, she had been abroad for two years, and now she must go back.
Perhaps one day, she and Brian would run into each other on the street.
“Come on, Lucas.Let’s get hammered!”
Ayla took his glass and refilled it with wine.
“Fine, fine, but I’m worried that your body won’t be able to bear it.”
In fact, Lucas had worried about her health many times this year because he was afraid that she would suddenly suffer through a relapse again.
Fortunately, nothing terrible had happened to her this year.
Ayla waved her hand in dismissal.
“It’s not a big deal.I’m in good health now!”
She flashed him a smile.
It wasn’t that much of a problem anymore.
She had endured a greater kind of pain a year ago, and now, she had nothing left to fear.
She had already had a near-death experience.
Why would she be afraid of death anymore? During the past two years, Ayla paid no attention to Brian, but she kept a close eye on Tatum Green’s every movement.
That man was still conducting illegal transactions, and he was getting more and more rampant.
One day, he would end up destroying himself.She inferred that maybe Brian had given up on this matter.
If he wanted to do something, he would easily succeed.
And if he abhorred Tatum, he could quickly dispose of him.
However, Tatum had been relatively safe over the past couple of years.But Ayla wasn’t going to let him get away with his crimes.He was the cause of all her suffering.
If he hadn’t kidnapped her, she wouldn’t have had to live like this.
She despised him.She truly hated him with every fiber of her being.
“Lucas, did you know? In the past two years, I have grown to despise Tatum Green, the man who almost destroyed me.Sadly, I’m unable to hurt him even a bit.Someday, I will kill him myself!”
Perhaps Ayla’s words were unintentional or maybe just brought about by her sadness, but Lucas’ face turned pale.
Would she hate him if she knew about his ties to Tatum? Would she also kill him? During the time they spent together, Lucas never mentioned anything to Ayla.
But when he heard what she said just now, he felt uneasy.
“Lala, do you really hate him that much? As you know, Brian is also a man who would do anything to achieve his goal.”
As a matter of fact, Brian and Tatum were the same kind of people.
If it weren’t for Brian, his family wouldn’t have been destroyed.
Before he could even understand anything, Tatum took him away and put him under harsh training, and he even did all the dirty work for him.
If Ayla found out about his ties with Tatum one day, she might think that he was also a bad person and she would be very disappointed.
Perhaps it might drive her into despair.
Lucas had thought of the worst case scenario, but he was so scared of losing her.
“Yes, they’re the same kind of people, and they are both the reason that I became like this.I’m not even sure whether I should hate them or thank them?” Ayla sneered.
She had been living in darkness for more than a year, and wandered on the edge of life and death for another year.
Hating them was the obvious choice.
Holding her hand, Lucas said, “If you want to hate them, just do it!”
Everyone bore a bit of hatred and resentment in their lives.
Ayla had a deep hatred in her heart, and so did he.And because of that, he didn’t force her to be a saint.
Looking back at him, Ayla nodded.
“Yes, I do hate them.But whenever I think of that man, my heart just hurts so much that I can’t breathe.”
Brian had a striking impact on her.
She wasn’t even sure why she fell in love with such a man.And yet she fell in love with him.
He was a heartless man who could be so ruthless that he didn’t even want his own child.
While drinking, Lucas felt a pang in his heart.
If it weren’t for Ayla, he would’ve destroyed Brian two years ago.
One day, he was going to kill him with his own hands.
The hatred in Lucas’ heart ran deep, but if he took revenge, it could cause him to lose Ayla, the love of his life.
“You won’t feel heartbroken anymore because from now on, I’ll be with you.Let’s laugh, cry, and feel pain together.If you want to take revenge, let me help you kill him!” Lucas promised.
Ayla’s hand slipped and the glass she was holding fell to the floor.
“Lucas, you’ll just end up regretting everything you’ve done for me.”
She was a woman whose heart had long died, so she hardly cared about anything.She still didn’t know if she was capable of loving another person again.
Lucas looked at Ayla as she lay on the sofa, muttering to herself.He wanted to tell her that he could never regret anything if it was for her.
The only thing he didn’t regret was falling in love with her.
He regretted that his family was destroyed overnight, and that he had to live in hatred.He regretted that he knew who had destroyed his family, and that Tatum had adopted him.
Over the years, only hatred grew in his heart.
But when Ayla came to his life, his cold heart became warm.
And he wanted to cherish this feeling forever.
Lucas stood up, brought Ayla back to her room and placed her on the bed.
However, she suddenly covered her mouth and vomited all over herself, including him “What a silly girl you are, Lala! I told you, you shouldn’t have drank so much even though you’re sad.”
Everyone knew that drinking was bad for the health, and it induced sexual urges.
Lucas was worried that he might not be able to control himself if he was intoxicated.
