To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 1401

That afternoon, Gilbert called off his engagement to the Silveras. He did not pick up a single one of Lottie's calls.

When he found Marigold, she was taking Caleb on a stroll around the neighborhood. It had been a while since she'd taken notice of anything related to Gilbert. She suddenly felt how nice it was to have her mental energy spent somewhere else, no longer being so hung up on that man.

However, when Gilbert appeared before her, her heartbeat quickened.

"Why are you here?" Marigold said, snapping out of her reverie.

Gilbert smiled lightly. Without saying much else, he pulled her into an embrace. "Didn't you say that I could come to see you once everything is settled?"

Marigold was stunned. She was in disbelief. "So, what you're saying is it's all over?"

"Didn't you read the news?" Gilbert was speechless.

"No. I didn't want to care." Every time she saw anything about Gilbert and Lottie, she felt miserable. She'd rather save herself the pain and block out anything to do with them.

Gilbert was not mad. Instead, his heart ached. It was because of him that Marigold refused to see the news. "The Bradshaws have been ruined. They will not threaten us anymore. And I've called off my engagement with Lottie."

Marigold felt like she was dreaming.

After moving out from Jenny's villa, she hadn't taken Gilbert's words to heart. She didn't think that he would actually come to find her. She was fully prepared to spend the rest of her life with just her child.

But now…

"Is that true?" Marigold wasn't too certain. She was doubtful of Gilbert's words.

Gilbert looked at her and said once more, seriously, "It's true. I'm not lying to you."

Marigold didn't know what to say.

"Let me take care of you and our child, Marigold. Please," Gilbert said, finally taking those words off his chest.

Marigold said nothing. Her eyes watered.

"I like you, Marigold. Let's be together." It took him a lot of courage to say that. He was finally admitting it today.

In fact, once those words were out, it didn't feel as hard as he thought.

Marigold cried. She'd been waiting for these words for far too long. "You won't leave us, will you?" she asked.

Gilbert shook his head. "I won't. I never will."
