Lying on the bed, Katherine still stayed awake.
Annoyance still haunted her. She tried to sleep but she failed, feeling sober but bored
Lying on the bed for a while, she heard a phone buzz a bit.
She reached over to grab her phone with her eyes closed. She took a look at it and saw a text.
It was sent by that woman, who threatened that she would spare Katherine no chance to regret by easily destroying everything she had at this moment.
Seeing that, Katherine wore a mocking smile. Destroy everything she had? Money might be probably the only thing she had right now.
What was more, she had kept all her deposit. How was that woman gonna take it away from her?
Katherine simply deleted the text and blacklisted the number.
She lay down with her hands resting on her belly.
Though she still kept the baby, she actually barely developed a kind of bond for her own baby.
But meanwhile, hardly could she imagine what if she left her own baby to someone else and then simply walked away without even paying a visit for two decades—just as what she had once experienced.
She would never do that. Nor could she be cold enough to do so.
She closed her eyes again, feeling a bit ache in her head.
After a while, Marshall came in to tell her it was time for dinner.
He walked over to support her up. Then he hugged her from behind, “Don’t worry. I will always be with you no matter what happens.”
Katherine didn’t struggle out this time. She leaned into his arms and said with soft voice, “When I was young, I was afraid my grandpa would pass away when he got older. But he still had gone. Then I was afraid of the divorce. And it still happened. Marshall, from then on, I have nothing to be afraid of.”
Hearing that, Marshall was rendered a bit guilty. He tightened his hug, “Sorry, but from now on, I swear I will be with you forever.”
