Bryce glared at Ian for a long while, but he simply looked away without losing his temper in the end. Bryce had been much more hot-tempered in the past—he would have lost his mind if Ian had said that to him when they were younger. However, after staying alone in the hospital for such a long period of time, he realized how his attitude and mindset had altered hugely.
Throughout this period, Sean was the only person who dropped by to visit Bryce. Moreover, Bryce could tell that Sean only paid him visits out of a sense of duty. Bryce would’ve thought that it was the other person’s problem if it were just a few people who ignored him, but he knew that he had to reflect on his own actions when he realized that everyone around him didn’t seem to care about him.
When Bryce put some thought into what Ian had said, he saw where Ian was coming from. He’s right—I did end things with Aurora because I found a new love. I had so many women back then, and Aurora was just one of my girls. I got rid of her after I got bored of her—it had nothing to do with her straightforward personality at all. Bryce let out a long sigh as he nodded. “Yeah. I think you’re right.” With his eyes narrowed, he glanced out the window as he recalled memories from the past.
He had so many women around him back then that there were only a few that he could properly remember. Although Aurora’s face was imprinted in his mind, he could barely recall what he had been through with her in the past. Bryce was silent for a long while before he spoke again. “When I think about it now, I realize that I owe your mom a huge apology. She has been cursed and criticized for years, but I think she didn’t do anything wrong. She was already rich when she was with me, so she didn’t get any financial benefits when she dated me. If anything, she lost her entire music career after being with me.”
Ian was surprised to hear this. Since when did Bryce ever reflect on his own issues? He has always been the sort of person to put the blame on others. Perhaps he woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. Is that why he’s picking on his own faults for once? Ian’s face remained hard and cold as he tightened his grip around Cindy’s wrist.
Cindy pursed her lips. She couldn’t figure out what Bryce was trying to do. When I saw the articles about Bryce, all of them described him as a really arrogant man, but now that I’m looking at him in person, I think he’s just a really complicated person. He appears stern and solemn, yet he has a warm and kind side to him. He isn’t exactly like what others describe him to be in the news, but I do agree with some points.
