A Cue for Love Chapter 999
Stay With You Through Thick And Thin
Samuel narrowed his eyes and looked at her. She’s indeed a smart and sly woman. She would have figured it out had I given her more information.
Instead of asking him questions, Natalie grabbed his wrist and read his pulse.
Not only did Samuel have an irregular pulse, but it was also inconsistent. She had no idea what was wrong with the bizarre pulse pattern.
Natalie shuddered, but she refused to take her hand off his wrist. She gave him a dazed look of bewilderment. “Is this why you hid the truth from me?”
“The aging drug has triggered the toxins in your body. You’re now suffering because of me!” Natalie’s eyes turned red.
Natalie put on a tough front by letting out a cursory laugh, but tears welled up in her eyes.
Her teardrops started rolling down her cheeks uncontrollably like pearls falling from a broken necklace. “So everything you did is for me.”
Natalie believed Samuel had his own reason for doing things in a certain way, but she did not expect him to put his life in danger for her. She bit her lips and felt sorry for the man. Why did you hide this from me? You silly man!
“Don’t cry.” Samuel lifted his hands and wiped the tears off her cheeks with his slender fingers.
“The toxins are so powerful that even the master couldn’t purge them out of your body. You knew that all along, yet you refused to tell me.” Natalie shot daggers at Samuel with her teary eyes. “Why didn’t you tell me? How could you… how could you hide it from me?”
“Nat.” Samuel pressed his lips and said gradually, “There’s nothing you could do even if I told you about my situation. I hid it from you because I didn’t want you to blame yourself. I just want to spare you the misery.”
“I didn’t need you to do that for me. I’m capable of handling my feelings.” Natalie tilted her head and looked at him. She continued questioning him in between sobs, “Had I not pulled this dirty trick on you, do you plan on keeping this a secret from me and the kids to the day you die?”
“I haven’t given up on the treatment,” Samuel said casually, “But if I fail to stop the toxins from spreading and pass away within these six months, Luna will announce to the public that I’d died in a traffic accident.”
“Samuel Bowers!” Natalie exploded with rage. She clenched her fists and punched the man in his chest repeatedly.
“What do you take me for? Huh?” Once again, she burst into tears. “Am I your business partner? Do you think I’m just a plaything that can keep you company when you need me? Don’t you care about my feelings?”
The blazing afternoon sun beamed through the window and hurt her eyes. “Or do you think I won’t stay with you through thick and thin?”
“Nope.” Samuel shook his head and pressed his voice. “I’ve never thought of you that way. And I care about your feelings. It’s just that I can deal with this on my own. There’s no point for you to suffer with me!”
Natalie looked between Samuel’s brows. She was both mad and terrified.
She was mad that Samuel made that decision without consulting her.
But at the same time, she was also afraid she might lose him in six months.
Natalie hopped down from the desk, grabbed Samuel’s hands, and said in a steady voice, “I want you to come with me to a place right now.”
“To where?” Samuel asked while knitting his brows.
Words caught in Natalie’s throat as she was still in a state of great agitation. She glared at him and said, “Don’t ask. Just come with me. I won’t do bad things to you, don’t worry.”
Natalie took off her surgical gown and left the hospital with Samuel.
Soon, Natalie and Samuel arrived at the city hall.
Samuel looked at the city hall signboard and pulled his hand away from Natalie. He looked at her and asked, “What do you want to do?”
