“Wait a minute.” Suddenly, Finnick stopped Noah. “I’ll go with you now to the airport.”
Finnick couldn’t sit and wait while Vivian was running away from him. He could never allow such a thing to happen.
Upon hearing that, Noah took his place behind Finnick. Then, they quickly made their way out. However, they discovered that the lift was out of order temporarily. Finnick, who was already frustrated, kicked the lift door violently. Then he turned left and ran down the stairs.
Just when he went down one floor, Evelyn appeared out of nowhere unexpectedly.
“Where are you going, Finnick?” Evelyn stopped him with her outstretched hand.
“Get out of my way!” With no time to waste, Finnick pushed her hand away and continued to run down the stairs.
Evelyn was not going to let Finnick leave her, so she quickly went after him and grabbed him by his arm. “You’re going to look for Vivian, aren’t you? She’s gone. Besides, she’s going to divorce you, so why can’t you let her go?”
“How do you know these things?” Finnick looked at Evelyn suspiciously.
Evelyn shifted her gaze. She couldn’t say that it was Noah who told her about Vivian’s intention to divorce him. Otherwise, all the things that she had threatened Noah to do would be exposed.
“Benedict told me so.” Evelyn thought quickly about it and said, “I guess you should know by now that I’m not Benedict’s biological sister. He actually gave me a call before he left. He said that Vivian is determined to divorce you.”
After saying that, Evelyn held on tighter to Finnick’s arm and begged him in a kittenish tone, “Finnick, it’s clear that Vivian doesn’t want you anymore. So please don’t go looking for her, alright?”
“This is between Vivian and me. It has nothing to do with you. Let go of me!” Finnick tried to yank his arm out of her hold, but Evelyn had a death grip on him.
Hearing Finnick’s reply, Evelyn was on the verge of breaking down. She became emotional and burst into tears. “Nothing to do with me? It has everything to do with me. I love you. Don’t you know that I love you?”
Evelyn still had feelings for Finnick. After all that she had done for him, he still did not have any feelings for her. In fact, all that he could think of was to go after Vivian. Inevitably, she was broken-hearted.
Finnick was shocked by Evelyn’s declaration of love for him. How can that be? Didn’t she herself say it before that we are nothing more than just friends?
Evelyn cried and said, “I lied to you, Finnick. There’s no way for me to be just a friend to you. I only said that because I was afraid that you would ignore me.”
Tears rolled down Evelyn’s face as she said, “Ever since I regained my memory, I rushed back from abroad to look for you. I wanted to tell you that I remember you. I also wanted to explain to you all the things that happened years ago. I wanted to be with you again. But when I returned, I found that you’ve married Vivian.
“Finnick, I’ve also tried to tell myself that you’re a married man and that I should not have any feelings for you anymore. But there’s no way that I can forget about you. I love you, Finnick!”
Evelyn’s confession failed to move Finnick. Instead, it made him even more upset. If he had known that Evelyn had such thoughts, he would never have worked with her.
“But I have no feelings for you anymore. Vivian is the one I love now. Let go of me. I want to find her.” Finnick grew impatient as he tried to shake off her hold.
Evelyn’s heart was full of jealousy at his blunt reply. Why is it that I’ve made myself so clear, but yet he still wants to go after Vivian? Don’t I have a place in his heart?
Vivian! It’s all because of you! Viciousness flickered in Evelyn’s eyes. If it weren’t for you, Finnick would never say such a thing to me! If it weren’t for you, Benedict would never abandon me as a sister. He used to adore and spoil me so much.
