As Callum looked at her, trying to console her, Natalia’s eyes welled up with tears. The guilt she felt towards him was overwhelming. Then, looking into his eyes, she said with conviction, “I’ll try, Cal. No matter what Magnus does, he’s no longer the man I love!”
Her past experiences with Magnus were enough to make Natalia despise him. She shouldn’t have let the baby she was carrying die. She had to pull herself together!
Magnus couldn’t sway her anymore, and he was definitely not allowed to hurt her again!
“That’s my girl,” Callum replied, overjoyed by Natalia’s words. “As long as you have no lingering feelings for that bastard Magnus, I have nothing to worry about.”
Perhaps it was time to consider moving up their wedding date. After all, making Natalia his wife sooner rather than later could prevent a lot of unnecessary trouble.
Natalia followed Callum back to England, leaving Magnus, who had spent years desperately searching for her, almost mad.
“Boss, you’re really going to England to get Natalia back?” Carter, Chase, and James, who had all witnessed Magnus‘ life these past years, asked.
Seeing Magnus in such a state made them feel terrible.
“Callum is not an easy guy to deal with. I checked him five years ago!”
Since Magnus was so determined to go to England, Carter, Chase, and James began to have a discussion.
They had all thought Natalia was dead after she jumped into the sea. They had tried many times to persuade Magnus to stop searching, to no avail. It was too heartbreaking. They even found a few women similar to Natalia and presented them to Magnus, but he
Chase and the others thought there must’ve been something wrong with Magnus, but, against all odds, Magnus had found Natalia. She was alive!
However, the gentle Natalia they knew was now taken, and the man she was with was not easy to deal with.
So, what good would it do for Magnus to chase after her without a plan? If it was in France, where they held power, it would be fine. But now he was heading to England!
However, no matter what they said, Magnus remained steadfast. His tone was uncompromising and firm, “How could I not go? I’ve been searching for her for so many years, and now that I’ve finally found her, I won’t give up no matter what they say! She is my wife, and I will never let her stay with that British man in England.
“I don’t care about the background or status of the man by her side. I will bring her back, I
must bring her back!
I have entrusted most of the company matters to Paul for arrangement and handling. If there are any major issues, I will deal with them promptly. Just help me stabilize things on the Melfort side, that’s enough.”
He had finally found Natalia, and for Magnus, it was like a divine blessing. So no matter what, he would never let go of this woman he deeply loved. Even if it cost him his life, he would bring Natalia back and explain all the misunderstandings from before.
He had once thought: If his remaining years didn’t have Natalia by his side, what meaning would there be in living in this world? Without her, he couldn’t go on! Nat, come back!
He gazed at the fiery sunset on the horizon.
“But boss…” James was genuinely worried about the dangers Magnus might face in England given his resolute stance. He thought about assigning more people to accompany him and level the playing field or protect their boss. However, Magnus‘ heart was already filled with Natalia, leaving little room for anything else. He couldn’t care less about James’s words.
His tone was unyielding and left no room for negotiation. “I’m going to England as soon as possible. I will bring my wife back, at all costs!”
Carter, Chase, and James couldn’t persuade Magnus, so they had to watch him leave for England with Paul and a few bodyguards. Although they were worried, they could only mobilize their limited resources in England to ensure Magnus‘ safety.
However, as long as Natalia was there, she probably wouldn’t let Magnus suffer too much. After all, she had once loved him to the core.
Upon arriving in England, Magnus started digging into Callum’s background and whereabouts until he had all the information he needed. There was nothing else he could do. He aimlessly wandered the streets of England, trying to ease his anxious and helpless
He had been to England countless times for business. He never imagined that the woman he dreamt of was living somewhere in this country. If he had known she was in England, he would have turned the country upside down to find her!
Natalia had no idea how Magnus had suffered after she fell into the sea. Now that she was alive and they could meet again, it was a sign from heaven that they were given another chance to reconcile. So Magnus had to seize this opportunity!
“Buttercup, I’ve made up my mind. I’m moving our engagement to this Sunday,” Callum said, looking lovingly at Natalia across the dinner table in the mansion they were staying in. “I want to make you mine as soon as possible!”
After his talk with Natalia, her mood had visibly evened out. She hadn’t shed many tears in helast few days, and her spirits seemed to be lifting. Callum breathed a sigh of relief and
was eager to get all the necessary arrangements out of the way.
Natalia had been eating when she heard him say this, and her fork and knife paused mid–air.
Feelings swirled within her, but she couldn’t find a single reason to say no to Callum. She fell silent for a moment before saying, “Alright, Cal, we’ll do it sooner if you say so.”
However, after a trip back to Melfort, the memories she had recalled gave her a sudden urge not to marry Callum.
