After staring at Sophia for a while, Walter’s eyes reddened. “Sophia, are you not willing to forgive me?”
With a nod, Sophia replied, “Yeah, I won’t forgive you.”
Her curt reply left Walter speechless. No longer intent on wasting her breath, Sophia dismissed him with a wave of her hand. “You should leave now. I don’t want to see you.” After that, she brushed past him to enter the house.
Walter let out a cry while intending to follow her, only to be blocked by John. “Please leave. You’re not welcome here.”
With a frown on his face, Walter stared at John, but he couldn’t muster up the courage to say anything. However, he did shout at Sophia from outside the house, “Sophia, I missed you dearly throughout the years, so please don’t be angry at me! I was forced to leave due to my circumstances!”
The villagers merely spat at him while chiding him.
