Cordy didn’t reply.
Sometimes, silence really could replace everything.
“I didn’t mean to hide the fact that I was the man who slept with you when you
were eighteen,” John admitted. “I asked you before if you hated him, and you
said yes. I thought I’d tell you when our relationship was more stable, when you
no longer rejected physical contact with me. Maybe…
Just maybe, you’d be able to accept my presence.”
Cordy listened quietly, not interrupting him at all. And so, John went on.
“At that time, I had just returned from abroad and was drinking with Bob and a
few other friends. At the bar, I saw you while you were delirious. A man
approached you, and you tried to refuse him. I went up to you two and pushed
him away, and then you leaned against me. You felt hot to touch. I admit that I
took you to a hotel, but where else was I going to take you? I didn’t know, and
you were burning up. I asked you, but you didn’t say anything. After that, when
we reached the hotel, you pushed me onto the bed, and…” John trailed off,
looking back at Cordy.
Cordy pursed her lips. So many years had passed since the incident, and the
blurred images in her mind seemed to clear up gradually.
“You said you begged me not to touch you, but you had no idea how desperate
you were that night. If you hadn’t left the morning before I woke up, you could’ve
seen that I was bruised all over from that night.”
Cordy couldn’t help but clench her fist tightly. John was bringing up the past that
she wanted to forget so badly with such ease, it made her blood boil.
“It’s not like I didn’t want to look for you before. But I had my pride; I was young
and wild, and after you forced me to sleep with you and abandoned me, I was
upset. I returned abroad, but it only lasted a month before I came back looking
for you. But then, my parents got into an accident and passed away.”
John paused for a moment, then cleared his throat and continued slowly,” My
whole family was in mourning, and my grandfather fell ill from the overwhelming
sorrow. I took on all the pressure and burden of the family, and devoted myself to
work. I had to travel between home and abroad frequently, and I simply couldn’t
find the time to look for you. Later, my grandfather brought Richard back, stating
that…you abandoned him.”
Cordy felt her heart clench painfully.
How could she have abandoned Richard?
She clearly remembered the doctor and nurse telling her that her baby had been
stillborn when she was on the operation table. She had been so distraught that
she didn’t even dare to look at the “corpse”.
She simply accepted the fact that her baby was gone.
“So, is this your way of getting revenge on me?” Cordy asked, instead of
explaining anything. It was futile to say anything, especially if the whole thing was
complicated to begin with.
“I’ll admit that when I first saw Richard, I was angry and even thought of getting
revenge on you. But after calming down, I chose to understand you. You weren’t
even nineteen, and you were still a child. What’s more, how much scorn would
you have received if people knew you had given birth out of wedlock?”
That was true.
So, that’s why John believed that she would abandon Richard. He never had
cause to suspect anything else; that there might have been a misunderstanding.
It was the same for Cordy.
Cordy couldn’t believe that John had genuine feelings for her. She thought he
was simply getting revenge for her being irresponsible.
“After that, I actually went looking for you again,” John said. “At Astonia… But you
were already together with Kyle. I saw you walking together in the sunset, and I
didn’t dare to meet you.”
Cordy remained silent. She didn’t know whether she should believe John’s
“At first, I wanted to forget about you. When I returned to the country to inherit
Levine Ventures, however, I saw you again. You were beautiful in your white
wedding dress. I was standing near you, but you didn’t spare me a glance.”
On the day of Cordy’s engagement party with Kyle, her mind was only filled with
the latter. At that time, it was impossible for her to have anyone else in her
