Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 129
Just as she thought she was going to fall, David Jones suddenly appeared and wrapped his
arms around her waist.
“Are you okay?”
Rachel Grey replied, “I’m fine.”
“I’m sorry, did she bump into you?” The little girl’s father looked at Rachel apologetically.
Rachel shook her head.
The girl’s father smiled and quickly approached the little girl. He squatted down and reprimanded her seriously, “Nancy, didn’t I tell you not to run around outdoors? Daddy will never take you out again if you don’t listen.”
“Daddy, I was wrong” The little girl tugged at her father’s sleeve coquettishly, blinking her big round eyes. “Daddy, I want to eat cotton candy. Can you buy me cotton candy?”
The father couldn’t stand his daughter’s loveliness, and his serious expression softened slightly. “Then promise me you won’t run around in the future.”
The moment the little girl got the cotton candy, she crawled into her father’s arms and kissed him.
This scene struck a chord with Rachel. A hint of sadness flashed across her eyes.
When she came back to her senses, she realized that the man who had been by her side. had disappeared.
She looked around and saw David Jones walking towards her, holding cotton candy.
Even in the noisy crowd, he was still that unique existence.
It turned out that he noticed Rachel’s intent gaze on the cotton candy, so he specially went to buy it for her.
Rachel hesitated for a while before taking the cotton candy and licking it.
The cotton candy was very sweet.
It was so sweet that Rachel felt a hint of sweetness seep into her heart.
“What were you thinking just now?” David asked.
He did not forget the sadness that flashed in the depths of her eyes just now, nor did he ignore the bitter smile on her face.
Rachel’s grip on the cotton candy stick tightened, and there was a hint of coldness in her eyes. “I thought of some unworthy people and some unworthy things.”
Just forget about them if they’re not worth it.” David reached out and held her cool hand. “Never torture yourself for someone else’s mistake.”
A smile bloomed on Rachel’s lips. She raised her eyebrows, showing off her unique charm. “How can you be sure I was not the one in the wrong but others?”
“Your happiness is far more important than what is right or wrong.”
The gentle evening breeze, coupled with the man’s husky voice, caused waves of uncontrollable ripples in her heart.
Rachel’s eyes flickered and she sighed softly. “My mother passed away when I was very young. Later, my father remarried. It was also on that day that I found out that I had a younger sister who was three months younger than me. Everything was fine at the beginning, but later on…”
Her body was a little stiff and tense. She clenched her fists tightly, her nails digging into her palms as she tried to control her surging emotions.
Even so, her voice still trembled slightly. “Later, when maternal grandfather found out I was not doing well, he brought me back to the Johnson family. I lost contact with them, but even if I decided not to think about these people or such things, I would still inadvertently think of the past.”
David listened quietly, his face expressionless. His gaze landed on Rachel’s pale face; the emotions within his black eyes became even more unfathomable.
He did not miss her hand that was gradually turning colder, nor her trembling voice.
It must have been a particularly painful memory.
So much so that she didn’t have the courage to look back.
He sensed the woman trembling, so he stopped in his tracks. He carefully pulled her into his arms.
“I’m sorry I’m late and didn’t appear by your side in time, but you don’t have to bear the storm alone in the future.”
Rachel’s pupils constricted as she suddenly tightened her grip on the man’s suit jacket.
Suddenly, a gentle smile appeared on her lips.
Rachel had taken an enormous bet with herself. She wanted to entrust her life to him. She bet that he would accompany her for the rest of her life.
