Love Comes To Me
Chapter 26 Who Slapped Her?
The sound of slaps was spreading along the aisle. The workers and customers passing by were stunned. Agnes ran towards Robbie immediately and asked, "Robbie, are you okay?". Olive came over and saw two big slap prints on her son's face. She furiously yelled, "Eloise Thompson, how dare you slap my son! You are going to pay for this!". She immediately charged towards Eloise with a murderous look. Eloise was unable to dodge. All of a sudden, a powerful arm emerged from behind and effortlessly stopped Olive's attack. "What is going on?". There was a voice coming from Eloise's back. The tone was chilly but there was a wave of unnoticeable anger. Soon afterward, a familiar scent surrounded her. That was Hector' odor, it was thin and fresh. Later, she felt her back leaning against a warm broad chest. She could feel the warmness radiating through the thin layer of clothing. For a split second, the perception of endless safety engulfed her. Suddenly, she had an urge to cry for no reason at all. She could not wait and turned to look at him. She asked with her eyes red, "How did you get out?". Hector stared down at Eloise. When he was about to respond, he saw the red prints on her cheeks, it immediately ignited the flame of anger in his heart. There was a strong wave of rage emerging in his eyes. The gentleness he used to have with Eloise was gone. A frightful character then replaced it. He slowly lifted his head and gazed at the people in front of him with an emotionless look, it was frightening!. "Who did it?" he asked. All six of them including Robbie, Josh Thompson, or Stanley Gardner had been through a lot. They were the people struggling to survive in the mall, none of them were ordinary. But at that moment, everyone was unnerving and could feel the pressure exerted. Agnes was shocked as she was not expecting a guy to appear out of nowhere to protect Eloise. Eloise was perplexed. She then scanned Hector. He was a handsome and gorgeous man who wore an expensive suit. He was tall and slim while behaving elegantly as if he was born with it. He looked like an aristocrat from the middle ages. When compared to Robbie who was right next to him, Hector was way ahead of him overall
Agnes was c onfused and mad at the same time. She thought that Eloise was having a terrible life and was constantly thi nking about Robbie for all these years. She did not expect h er to be able to lure an outstanding man like that. She did not d eserve it! . A bitch who used t o be a surrogate mother, she did not deserve it! . She should hide in a pl ace where no one could find her and live a terrible life! . When she was about to go crazy fo r jealousy, Eloise made an insult, "I a m fine, I just got scratched by a dog. She slowly turned her head over and looked at Robb ie with an indifferent look. Robbie just got slapped twice and was referred to as a dog in front of everyone, he felt humiliated. He gritt ed his teeth and threatened, "Eloise, do you want to die?" . She calmly stared at him and said, "Robbie, I did not seek revenge on you all these years because I did not want to dirty my hands. But that does not make me a weak prey. The f irst slap was about the betrayal 6 years ago. Do not act like I did not know that you and 'my best sister' flirted with each other, then at the end pretending that I am the one who betrayed you! You cheated on me and yet still acting as you are innocent, with your whole family acting like they did not know the truth. It truly disgustingly broadens my horizon. "The other slap was for your overbearing me 5 years later. I, Eloise, do not owe you or anyone else. If you had chosen to cu t off your relationship with me, treat me like a stranger whenever we meet again. I, Eloise had lost the privilege of the Thompson family, but I am doing just fine. So, I hope everyone can listen. Do not talk to me even if we met, because. I am disgusted!!!" . After saying all that, Eloise pulled Hector into the dining room without waiting for their responses. At this moment, Josh said, "Eloise, try walking one more step. If you dare to do so, do not ever return to the family. The ton e sounded li ke an offer. Eloise cackled and walked away. She did not even look back. She pulled Hector's hand and walk ed into the room, soon vanishing behind the door. "Bang!" The door of the room was closed. E loise slowly let go of Hector's hand. She looke d like she had gone into war and was exhausted. Although she looked edgy a nd indifferent just now, she wa s still depressed in her heart. Who knew her closest pe rson in the entire world wou ld betray and humiliate her. Eloise was baffled. She did not do anything wrong throughout her entire l ife
Why would they treat her like that? . Hector could feel that she was depressed. His eyes became sullen wh ile wanted to exterminate everything. But he concealed his feelings flawlessly. He as ked gently, "Are you okay? . "I am fine. " E loise forced out a smile, "I am sorry. She was too afraid to look at Hector when sh e concluded her sentence. He had witnessed her in such an unbear able situation. It was like exposing the ug liness and wounds from her past to everyone. Eloise was too afraid to tell Hector that she was a su rrogate mother just for money. She was too filthy to be standing next to Hector, don't even mention Solomon. Solomon was so innocent and self-carin g. If he ever knew she abandoned her child j ust for money, how disappointed would he be? . When she thought this, Eloise could feel her heart contracting. She could no t even stay any longer. She rushed to her seat and blindly grabbed her bag with h er. "Alright, I am not feeling well, I am going back home. Thanks for the dinner. "Miss Eloise, a re you okay? Do you n eed to see a doctor?" . Solomon walked t owards Eloise and was about to grab her leg. But Eloise who would respond to all of his reque sts backed off a few steps. Solomon froz e with both his ha nds up in the air. Eloise apologized immedia tely, "So-sorry, Solomon, i-it was not on purpose. sorry. After that, she ran past Hector a nd fled the dining room in a panic. She did not even wait for Solomon's reply. Hector looked at the opened door of the dining room with a su llen face. There were currents of mixed emotions flowing in his ey es. It was nearly impossible to tell how he truly felt about this. When Solomon finally calmed down, he rushed out of the room w ith his tiny legs, "Miss Eloise…" . But Elo ise was no l onger there. His eyes became red and he turned his he ad to look at Hector. The tears fell off from his eyes, "Daddy. Does Miss Eloise hate me?"
