”Therefore, this isn’t something that we can decide as if we’re still teenagers. We have to think carefully and consider everything before we come up with a mature decision.”
Jacob replied immediately, “I can’t accept what you’ve just said. I know that you still have feelings for me deep down in your heart and I have feelings for you too. Since we still have feelings for each other, why can’t we get through this together then?”
As he spoke, Jacob forcefully asked, “Matilda, I want you to tell me the truth. Do you have any feelings for me now?”
Matilda was slightly embarrassed as she replied, “How do you expect me to answer your question? After all, we were both deeply in love and we had such a good relationship back then. We were each other’s first loves and we have already been deceiving ourselves for more than twenty years now.”
After that, Matilda replied, “I’ve already told you what I feel about this matter. We shouldn’t only be considering our own feelings in deciding our relationship.”
Jacob cried even harder and he looked like an aggrieved child who had suffered a lot of grievances.
He had already been suffering too much emotionally for so many years. That was the reason why he felt such great comfort when Matilda came back home.
As soon as he saw Matilda, he realized that his life has always been in dire straits for the past twenty over years.
He did not want to continue living that kind of life.
Matilda could not stop her eyes from turning red when she saw Jacob crying desperately like a child.
She walked up to Jacob before she used her sleeves to gently wipe away his tears. After that, she said in a distressed manner, “Jacob, I know how you’ve suffered a lot for many years. If only we could turn back time. If only we could go back to the day before our graduation ceremony. If we could turn back time and even if I found out that you had sex with Elaine then, I would never have given up on you and let you go…”
After that, Matilda sighed sadly before she said, “It’s a pity that it is all in the past now. No one can turn back time. In the blink of an eye, we’re both already middle-aged people who have already lived for almost half a century!”
Jacob grasped her hands tightly before he said excitedly, “Matilda! It’s precisely because we can never turn back time that we shouldn’t waste any more time. We shouldn’t miss out on even a single second to spend the rest of our lives happily together!”
At this point, Jacob was very excited. He knelt down on the ground with one knee before he blurted out, “Matilda, I want to be with you!”
When she saw Jacob kneeling down, Matilda suddenly panicked and she hurriedly tried to pull him up. After that, she blurted out, “Oh, Jacob! What are you doing? Stand up!”
Jacob replied stubbornly, “If you refuse to go out with me, then I will just keep kneeling here until you promise to be together with me!”
Matilda glanced at the kitchen door before she said anxiously, “Jacob, please get up. How are we going to explain this if the children come in and see this?”
Jacob replied seriously, “If Paul comes in and sees this, I’m going to tell him that I am deeply in love with his mother. I’ll tell him that I want to be together with his mother and I hope to receive his blessings. If Claire sees us, then I’ll tell her that I love you and I want to divorce her mother so that I can finally be together with you again!”
