Episode 11

(I couldn't afford to wait)

Leila shot Holley a glance and said, "Unlike you, I have to stick with this relationship. I couldn't go back. I have no other option but to move forward courageously."   

 She stared at Holley who was in front of her. Then she continued, "You are living a pretty good life. And you may have already forgotten Charles, but I'm different. I have given all my love to him. I would die if I couldn't have him."   

 No wonder why Leila was willing to cooperate with Holley and obey her orders.    

 "I couldn't afford to wait,"  Leila said indifferently. The longer it would take, the slimmer the chance she could have. She couldn't just wait. She had to make some move.     

Looking at Leila, Holley suddenly felt sorry for her. 'Such a poor woman!' After hesitating for a moment, Holley said, "Since Charles took your son away from you, why don't you do the same thing to him. Why don't you take his daughter away?"  

As expected, Leila's eyes lit when she heard Holley's suggestion.     

Holley was right. As long as she had Shirley, it would not only make Sheryl anxious but she could also make a deal with Charles. She would trade Shirley for Charlie. If she could have Charlie back, she would have a chance again.    

 "Thank you so much,"  she gratefully said. All possibilites suddenly dawned on her so she thanked Holley many times.     Holley didn't say a word any more. She just put on her sunglasses and left.    

 While in the car and looking at the view outside the window, Holley couldn't help but let out a sigh.    

 If she hadn't chosen to go to South Korea, would she be also like Leila who was desperately trying to get Charles now? Fair is foul and foul is fair. Some people would be willing to do anything, even to degrade themselves, just to be with the person they loved.   

But would it really be worth living without dignity?    

 "Miss Ye, we're here,"  the driver said. Holley's wandering thoughts went back to the present when she heard the driver. She didn't notice that the car had already stopped in front of the apartment building.     

This apartment, which was more than 300 square meters, was just bought by George two days ago. And he had put the property ownership certificate under Holley's name.    

 George treated her so well that she really cherished the life she was living at present.     

Holley unlocked the door and got out of the car. When she entered the room, she found George preparing dinner. It was kimchi rice, her favorite. Since George was busy and didn't notice her, she held his waist from behind.    

 "You're back,"  George acknowledged without lifting his head. "I made your favorite pickled roast pork. Go wash your hands and taste it,"  he added with a smile.   

Holley didn't move. Instead, she held George's waist tightly.    

 George noticed that Holley seemed acting strange. He turned to face her. "What's going on?" he asked.    

 "Nothing,"  Holley answered in a low voice. "I just suddenly realized that I was so lucky to have met you. It's so nice to have you."    

"Silly woman." George held her back and kissed her on the head. His voice was especially gentle. Holley held him even tighter. She felt so lucky that she didn't need to be like Leila.    

 "Oh, Holley." All of sudden, George became serious. Then he said, "Mom called me today."   

 "And?" Holley froze for a second when she heard George mentioned his mother. She then let go of George and poured herself a glass of water, trying to hide her nervousness. She asked, "What did she want this time?"  

"Holley, please be polite. She's my mother." George slightly furrowed his eyebrows and said to Holley, "No matter what, you shouldn't be rude to her."    

"What else can I do?" Holley sneered. 

"George, we've been together for two years now but your mother hasn't accepted me as your girlfriend yet. She ignored my presence every time. No matter how hard I tried to please her, she didn't care at all. She kept on introducing you to some billionaire's daughters. She wouldn't want me to be her daughter-in-law. What do you want me to do?"    

"Holley..." George knew that he was in the wrong so he pulled Holley's hand awkwardly. "No matter what my mother would like to do, what's important is we are together. You must have known how well I've been treating you. It's unnecessary for you to argue with her."   

 Holley took a sip of water to conceal her anxiety. She was afraid that her steady life, which she had worked hard to obtain, would just be ruined by that old witch.   

She put the glass down and hugged George. "Honey, I'm just worried. I'm scared that you might break up with me because of her."    

"Don't worry, I wouldn't,"  George assured her. George reached out his hand to caress Holley's back and assured her, "No matter what happens in the future, I won't break up with you."    

Holley leaned on his chest and said like a spoiled girl, "I want you to promise me." 

   "Okay, I promise,"  George said without hesitation. "No matter what, I'm with you,"  he added.     

George's promise made Holley less worried. She cast a glance at George and asked, "Then, why did she call you?"    "She said she would be here in Y City in two days and she'd like to pay me a visit,"  George replied in a casual tone. 

Then he added, "Honey, I could tell from the way she talked earlier that she has changed. I guess she has given up. I think we should take this chance to let her know you better. I want her to know how gentle and considerate my girlfriend is."  

George's face beamed when he said those words. He circled Holley's waist with his one hand. "After all, she's my mother so I hope you could understand and tolerate if something happened."    

"But..." Holley protested. She had already used all her skills to please George's mother who just simply didn't like her.So now, she didn't know what else she could do.     

Holley started to feel uneasy just thinking of George's mother's future visit to Y City. She had a strong feeling that something would happen.   

  George told Holley that his mother might have already accepted her as his girlfriend. But Holley doubted it. It might just be a cover-up.
