Chapter 3594 Offer Up His Life
“Oh, thank goodness she’s alive and well!” Floyd exclaimed in excitement upon hearing the news, but quickly calmed down when he realized something.
Logically speaking, Gloria should contact me as soon as she returns to West Pavilion. Why hasn’t she done so? It’s like she doesn’t even remember that I’m her boyfriend! Wait… Could it be that she’s afraid of contacting me because she leaked the information on the underground base’s location?
Oh, Gloria… Did you really do such a thing? Hmm… Now that I think about it, it’s highly unlikely that she leaked the information. If she really was the culprit, then it’d make more sense for her to go into hiding instead. Showing herself now would only draw attention to herself and arouse suspicion.
Heck, Master might even interrogate her personally! It wouldn’t make sense for her to put herself in such a dangerous position! She must have nothing to hide if she’s making an appearance in public like this! But if that’s the case, then why hasn’t she contacted me?
After taking some time to consider all the possible reasons, Floyd came up with a seemingly logical explanation.
“Ah, I know! She’s deliberately keeping her distance from me to avoid causing a misunderstanding! She knows she’d be putting me in a tough spot if she contacts me immediately upon her return. By keeping her distance, she’s able to draw their attention away from me. Still, wouldn’t that mean she’s choosing to bear this burden all by herself? Looks like Gloria cares deeply about me! This must be true love, huh?” Floyd muttered to himself.
Floyd’s touching moment was interrupted by the vibration of his communication device.
After a brief pause, he quickly took a look at it and saw a text message from Gloria: Let’s meet up, Floyd!
Those few words were more than enough to make him jump in joy like an excited child.
All the negative feelings he had in the past few months vanished in that very instant.
With trembling hands, Floyd texted back: Sure! Where do we meet?
Every second felt like a year as he waited for her reply even though the reply came in within three minutes.
Gloria replied: For safety reasons, I’ll only tell you the location after I get there. In the meantime, you can head over to the place where we spent the night together.
Although she had stopped texting him any further after that, Floyd continued bombarding her with tons of messages.
All right, I’ll meet you there!
I’ve been missing you a lot, Gloria. Did you miss me too?
This time, I’m going to introduce you to everyone!
Wait for me, Gloria! I’m coming!
Floyd felt a little disappointed when he got no response from her, but he quickly cheered up at the thought of seeing his lover very soon.
He was so happy that he even discarded whatever suspicions he had toward her.
I can’t believe I suspected a kind woman like Gloria! I’ll have to apologize to her and beg her for forgiveness when I see her! If she refuses to forgive me, then I’ll just offer up my life to redeem myself!
Having made up his mind, Floyd began fixing his appearance, which he had neglected lately.
His hair was messy, stubble had formed on his face, and even his clothes reeked of sweat.
Floyd looked so unkempt that he was surprised he didn’t notice it before.
After going through his grooming routine, Floyd checked his appearance in the mirror once more.
He breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that he looked like his usual self again.
“I’m coming, Gloria!” Floyd mumbled to himself as he felt eager to give his lover a big, loving hug.
