The Substitute Bride: Making Memories Of Us Chapter 113

Chapter 113: She Had No Other Wishes

The moment Brian returned to his villa, he saw that Anna was sleeping on the sofa.Was she waiting for him to come home? He walked towards the sofa.

“Anna,” he called out softly.

“Brian, you’re home.”

Anna opened her eyes and saw him standing in front of her.

“Why are you sleeping here? If you’re sleepy, go upstairs and sleep on a bed.In the future, I’ll be a lot busier, and I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get home,” he said.

Shaking her head, Anna replied, “It’s fine.Are you hungry? Let me prepare some food for you.”

“No, I’m not hungry.” Brian sat on the sofa.

“Anna, who is this Wenny of Starlight?”

Anna was currently pouring a glass of water when her hand froze because of what he said.

“Brian, why are you suddenly asking about her?”

“Am I not allowed to ask this question? I should’ve personally met this designer, but I haven’t had much Spare time on my hands lately.”

Brian turned his gaze towards Anna.He knew that she was hiding something important from her.

“Miss Wenny is from Antawood.” She couldn’t tell him that Wenny was actually Ayla.

However, since he had asked about her, she knew that she shouldn’t hide too many things from him.

“I see.It’s getting late.You should go to bed.”

After saying that, Brian went upstairs.

While he was in his study, he sat at the desk, trying to recall the phone call earlier.He wondered why Wenny was avoiding him and not talking to him too much.

Meanwhile, Anna went back to her room.

She was tossing and turning, having a hard time falling asleep.

When she had finally had enough of her restlessness, she got up and dialed Ayla’s number.

At the same time, Ayla just happened to be standing in front of her window, remembering what Brian had said to her tonight.

She was a bit worried.She hoped Brian didn’t recognize her voice.

That phone call from him made her feel restless.

“Anna?”

Ayla was surprised to know that someone had called her again.

“Ayla, have you met with Brian recently?” Anna asked bluntly.

When she heard what Brian said earlier, she felt that he had developed suspicions already.He was a very perceptive individual, so Anna was worried that he might’ve figured something out.

Whenever she was in front of him, she didn’t dare to have any other ideas.Only when it came to Ayla did she make decisions by herself.

“What did he say to you?” Ayla asked with worry.

Her heart had been uneasy ever since the phone call.

“He asked me about you,” said Anna.

Based on Ayla’s tone, she was unnerved, which only meant that they must’ve contacted each other.

“Have you told him the truth? I didn’t say anything to him.Brian just called me.Perhaps he’s just a bit curious about me,” Ayla replied calmly.

Hearing her reply, Anna just hung up the phone, gaining peace of mind.

Ayla also breathed a sigh of relief.

As long as Brian had no idea, everything would be fine.

In all honesty, even if they ran into each other, she wouldn’t have anything to do with him, so she wasn’t that worried.It was just that he had always been a predator.

Ayla had already sent twenty sets of designs to the Clark Group’s head office.

Today was her day off, and Lucas hadn’t come back yet.

He had been away for a much longer time than she had expected.

She walked alone on the street and bought a lot of food from the supermarket.She remembered that she had to invite Hayden to have a meal at home, so she called him.

“Uncle Hayden, it’s Ayla.”


“Oh, Lala, it’s you!”

Hayden was currently trimming the flowers and plants in the garden by himself.He was either drinking tea and reading the newspaper or pruning plants and flowers every day.

Receiving a call from Ayla was a breath of fresh air to him.

“I promised to invite you over for a meal, remember? How about this noon?”

Ayla glanced at her watch.It was only ten in the morning.

She still had enough time to prepare lunch.

“Gladly!” Hayden replied at once.

“I’ve been waiting for your invitation for days!” he remarked with a smile.

He didn’t contact Ayla himself because he was worried that Miley would misunderstand him and make a fuss about it.

Today, she went out with her rich lady friends for a beauty makeover, and he felt bored being alone. Ayla prepared the dishes, which were all ordinary home-cooked meals.

As he sat at the table, Hayden said, “You’re a good c**k, aren’t you? Whenever there’s a chance, I’ll come here often.”

“Of course! You can come here whenever you want, Uncle Hayden.If you like the food, please eat more of it.”

Ayla had searched for recipes on the Internet and specially prepared medicinal dishes that aided in recovery from heart diseases.

When Hayden looked at the dishes, he said, “You’re so thoughtful, Lala.”

“Uncle Hayden, I don’t have any other relatives.I only returned to A City for work, but you’ve been really good to me.And since you’re willing to let me call you ‘uncle’, then I’ll treat you as my family.”

Ayla also felt close to Hayden.

“Good.You’re a good girl.”

Once he had eaten, he thought that it was the best lunch he had ever had.

Ayla had also prepared some fruits and brought them to the living room.

“Uncle Hayden, help yourself with some fruits.They’re good for your health.”

Hayden glanced at her and nodded.

“Sure.By the way, do you live here on your own?”

She hesitated for a moment before she nodded.

Lucas told her that he didn’t want anyone else to know about their relationship for the time being, so she didn’t tell anyone.

“This apartment’s security is good enough, so it’s safe to live alone.”

Hayden looked at her intently.This apartment was situated in Antawood’s prime location.Each apartment cost millions.

After lunch, Ayla took him for a walk along the garden of the community.

“Did you live in the Woodsen family’s villa when you were a child?” he asked.

“Yes, the Woodsen family adopted me when I was still a child.”

Whenever she spoke of her past, Ayla was surprisingly calm.

“They didn’t treat you well, did they?”

Hayden had conducted a thorough investigation of her past, but he never found out why she even got adopted by the Woodsen family.

Did it have something to do with the woman he loved? Smiling faintly, Ayla shook her head.

“The past is already over.The important thing is that I’m fine now.”

“Lala, haven’t you ever thought of your biological parents?” Hayden asked out of curiosity.

“I have no idea where to find them.Maybe they’ve already passed away.”

Ayla didn’t hope to find them anymore.She felt that it was good enough that she was doing well now.

There was a man who loved her deeply, and she enjoyed her job.She had no other wishes.

When Hayden heard what she said, he felt a pain in his heart.

He didn’t know where to find his child and his lover.He didn’t even cling to any sort of hope.

When he saw the large pool of blood on the scene of the car accident, he only saw her lying there with bandages covering her head.

There was no hope left in his heart at all.He didn’t even have the chance to bury her himself because of Miley.

Upon his arrival at the hospital, all he saw was an empty ward.

Then, he only found her tombstone.
