Even After Death novel (Olivia and Ethan) novel Chapter 29

Chapter 29

Tears streamed down Olivia’s cheeks.

She knew that she and Ethan could never go back to how things were before. He had betrayed her and destroyed the Fordhamns, and the Fordhams owed him his sister’s life.

Those debts could never be settled. Trying to resolve them would only serve to tighten the knots of their relationship, suffocating them and leading to an inevitable end.

Ethan held her face in his hands, wiping away her tears with his cheeks. “Liv, don’t love me. Hate me instead. t betrayed you, I killed our child, and I can never turn back.”

She sensed his inner turmoil, but amidst that, she could feel the tenderness he still had for her like a calm oasis in a turbulent desert sandstorm. However, she knew that the oasis would soon be destroyed by the raging winds.

Ethan left the room, leaving Olivia behind. Olivia knew that this was their final farewell.

When Olivia headed out of the study, Madam Burgess was nowhere to be seen. The kind–hearted Madam Burgess had always believed their conflicts to be petty quarrels and had even attempted to mediate between them.

In her eyes, Olivia was the singular and rightful Mrs. Miller, hence she was unaware of her grave mistake.

Olivia laughed at herself. With Madam Burgess by her side, she never felt lonely in the spacious mansion. It wasn’t until Madam Burgess left that Olivia was hit by the emptiness of the house and the tedium of life.

The sky outside was already dark, and there was a pot of chowder Madam Burgess had made waiting in the kitchen. Olivia poured herself some into a bowl. The steam from the pot veiled her face, obscuring her features.

Slowing eating, Olivia’s expression was calm. She had found a solution to the exhausting game they were stuck in.

“Ethan, I will repay the debt my father owes you,” she thought to herself.
