Seeing that Amelia was cold as ice, Denzel’s heart ached. His hands trembled as he picked up the divorce papers.
Finally, the day was arriving.
When Amelia saw Denzel picking up the agreement, her expression darkened and she turned her face away.
She had given up on her husband, who had been protecting her for the past ten years.
“Denzel, I still remember!”
“Ten years ago, on a snowy night…..”
“You were dressed in rags and held a wooden stick in your hand. You didn’t know me but in order to protect me, you were bitten
by stray dogs all over your body, still, you refused to retreat.”
“Using the stick as a sword, you became my knight in shining armor!”
“From then on, I began to admire you.”
“You are a hero in my heart”.
“I still remember your courage. What about you?”
“Over the past few years, you have lost all your enthusiasm and courage…”
“Look at yourself now. You speak softly every day. You even refused to retaliate whenever I hit or scolded you. Are you still a man?”
“I really don’t want to see you like this…”
“I have been waiting for you for ten years, but you have also let me down for ten years.”
“If only you had taken a stand and objected to these divorce papers today!”
“Then, I would have given myself to you for the rest of my life!”
“Unfortunately, You didn't…”
“You didn’t even have the courage to keep your wife.”
“Perhaps it’d be better if we just end this here…”
At the thought of this, Amelia could no longer hold back the tears in her eyes and turned to leave.
However, Jane looked at Denzel with disgust, feeling extremely satisfied.
Ten years ago, her silly daughter had saved a homeless kid and insisted that he stay at their home. Since then, the kid had been in their home for ten years.
Her daughter even tried her best to get everyone’s approval of this boy. Three years ago, She finally got married to him.
The news caused a sensation in the whole of Jiang City.
The Mo Family, which was revered by many because of Amelia’s beauty, had become the laughing stock due to this matter. Since then, the family had been unable to recover from it.
The goddess of the city had married a poor worthless guy.
The joke had been circulating in Jiang City for three years.
Now, her daughter finally understood.
As long as her daughter divorced this guy, she would be able to start a new life in Jiang City with her incomparable appearance.
Alfred Gao, who had been pursuing Amelia for a long time, seemed to be a good candidate. His family is rich and powerful. Recently, the Mo family had also asked for help from the Gao family.
“Sign it! My daughter is going on a date with Alfred Gao tomorrow.” Jane cursed at Denzel’s unmoving figure.
Denzel sighed and put away the divorce agreement. He said coldly, “Just give me a moment, I was making a soup for Amelia.”
Jane looked disdainfully at Denzel. Over the past ten years, this guy had always put on a sour face, as he didn’t take the Mo family seriously at all.
Only Amelia could make him smile.
“Who do you think you are!”
“You better sign it!”
Jane urged again and left the kitchen.
After they left, Denzel suddenly smile bitterly, and his eyes were filled with tears.
He looked at the pot of bubbling soup, and his eyes were burning.
“Amelia, do you know why I don’t fight or retaliate all these years…”
“Because you are sick.”
“Your body is weak, so you cannot be provoked.”
“You would always get sick at the end of the month, and it was unbearable for you
“So I just couldn’t bear to aggravate you even further…”
“If it weren’t for the fact that I have added medicinal herbs to this pot of soup every month, you wouldn’t have been able to last for more than fifteen years…”
“Just one more year, and you would be completely recovered.”
“It is a pity, just one year…”
“Why can’t you give me another year?”
“Are you really disappointed in me?”
“My true identity is something you still do not know!”
“Because of that one sentence of yours, because you said that you needed company, I had stayed by your side for ten years!”
At the thought of this, Denzel’s heart ached terribly.
But at this time, his cell phone rang.
He picked up the phone and frowned slightly.
It was a phone number that had not appeared for ten years.
Was it possible that his family…
“Hello,” Denzel answered immediately.
At the other end of the phone came an old and sorrowful voice.
“Young Master, the Old Master had passed away last night…”
His words were like a thunderclap, and Denzel was in shock.
“Grandpa. He has passed away…” Denzel lamented in his heart.
Denzel was born into an aristocratic family with famous medicinal skills. They were the Lu family from the North.
His parents died early. He had been envied and hated by other people in the family because of his talents since he was a child.
His grandfather was the only one who doted upon him.
But in the end, in order to keep him safe for the rest of his life, his grandfather had faked Denzel’s death and sent him out of toxic household. He wanted to keep him safe from all the pernicious politics and ulterior motives in the family.
It was also on the first night when he was wandering on the street that he met Amelia, the girl who had made his heart ache for the longest time…
“Young Master, the Old Master has been paying attention to you in silence, all these years. He has also been cultivating power for you. There is also a letter he wants to pass to you. I will pick you up now.” The man on the phone said chokingly.
Denzel agreed. After hanging up the phone, he sat directly on the ground.
“The one who often carried me on his shoulder and liked to stab my little face with his stubble…”
“Who sneaked into my room in the middle of the light, taught me medicinal skills, and knocked on my head whenever I fell asleep…”
Denzel did not notice that his face was full of tears.
It was not until thick smoke and a smell of burnt food wafted over that Denzel's attention was roused.
