Samuel had always assumed that Natalie had not detected anything because she was slow to realize. However, it was suddenly apparent to him that the woman had been rejecting that possibility subconsciously in order to avoid disappointment.
“Sorry...” he said in a deep voice.
“What are you apologizing for?” Natalie blinked away the tears in her eyes and smiled. “Nothing worth having comes easy. Now that I have Xavian, Clayton, Franklin, Sophia, and... you, I'm already extremely contented!”
Even though she was beaming from ear to ear when she said that, Samuel could not help but feel a sharp ache in his heart as he looked at her.
He could feel his heart breaking for Natalie.
Suddenly, he hated himself for being so stupid, and not realizing earlier that Yara was not the woman from six years back. If he had discovered it back then, he could have reunited with Natalie earlier, and she wouldn't have gone through so many hardships.
