Bye, My Irresistible Love Chapter 597

Bye, My Irresistible Love Chapter 597-Helen’s POV:

George and I stayed at home for two days. On the third day, he told me that he planned to go back to Washington.

“I’m sorry, but Grandpa told me to go back. I’ve booked a flight ticket for tonight.”

Even though I wasn’t expecting him to spend his entire holidays with me, my heart still sank when he said that he was leaving

Thereafter, he took me out for grocery shopping. Within less than an hour, the shopping cart was filled with all sorts of food. Seeing that he still intended on picking stuff up, I immediately stepped forward to stop him.

“Are you planning to hoard food until next year? When do you think we’ll be able to finish all these up?”

“Just keep them at home as reserves. I won’t be able to stay with you for the next few days, so you’ll have to make do with these groceries. I’ll eat with you again when I get back.”

George put a few more items into our cart, wheeled it to the cashier, and paid the bill. Once we got home, he put all the food he bought in order. By the time he finished, my fridge was filled with food.

“Will you be okay on your own?” he asked abruptly.

“I’m going to be fine. I’m not a child,” I answered confidently. Everything would be fine as long as I didn’t try to cook.

“When it comes to taking care of yourself, you’re a bit like a child,” George bantered.. I wanted to refute him, but before I could utter a word, he had already pulled me into his embrace.

“I’ll try to return as soon as possible. I’m really worried you might set the kitchen on fire again.”

“What? I didn’t set the kitchen on fire!” I said, glaring at him. He stroked my hair before letting go of me. And then, he walked to the kitchen.

After cooking some dishes, he stashed them into the refrigerator, and marked the time for three meals a day.

“I’ve made something for you for tomorrow and the day after that. It won’t be easy ordering takeout during the holidays. I’m worried you might starve to death.”

“I can take care of myself just fine. Quit worrying.” I replied listlessly. He shook his head in response. Thereafter, he went to the bathroom to take a shower. Once he got out of the bathroom, he hugged me again and kissed me for a long time before letting me go

I walked him to the parking lot. As I watched him walk to his car, I suddenly felt an indescribable sadness

Just then, George stopped in his tracks, turned around, strode towards me, and wrapped me in his tight embrace.

“I’m gonna miss you, Helen.” I hugged him back, wanting to tell him just how much I’d miss him, too. But before I could speak, he said to me, “Would you like to come with me?”

I couldn’t understand how I felt at the moment, but my heart was filled with sweetness. This was the first time that I had truly experienced the feeling of love which Lucy described to me.

But then, the rational part of my mind told me that I couldn’t go with him. I looked up at him and said, “You should go. But when you come back, I have something to tell you.”

I had been thinking a lot about our relationship. If George still wouldn’t give me a clear answer as to what the nature of our relationship was, I’d take the initiative to ask him. I hated the fact that I had to

guess what he thought about me every single day. It was better to make things clear now than to get ourselves hurt in the end.

“Why can’t you say it now?” asked George.

“Let’s just talk about it when you come back, okay?” I patted him on the back and let go of his hand.

“You should go now. If you delay any longer, you’re going to be late.”

“Okay. I have something to tell you when I get back as well.” Finally, George let me go and drove away. I didn’t go home until his car disappeared from my sight. At this moment, the house felt so empty, and so was my heart.

George’s POV:

After getting off the plane, I saw a message from Boswell that read, “Did you go to Washington to accompany your grandpa? Jane just arrived there and she’s planning to fly back to New York. You should ask her if she’s at the airport. She hasn’t been back for many years. Look after her, okay?”

Before I could reply, Jane called me. The sound of her laughter resonated from the phone. “Turn around, silly! I’m right behind you.”

When I turned around, I saw her pushing a cart along with several suitcases on it and was walking towards me. Jane waved at me with a smile on her face.

“Welcome back!” I approached her with a smile.

“Yeah, I’m finally back!” Jane sighed. She left her luggage cart to me and walked beside me while carrying only her purse. Jane had always been a minimalist. Her clothes were simple, yet they brought out a certain elegant chan, which was just like her design concept. Objectively speaking, she was a capable, intellectual, and s*xy woman.

When we walked out of the airport, a gust of cold wind blew past us, causing her to shiver. “I seem to remember that it used to be warmer during winter at home. Has the weather cooled down lately?”

“You really haven’t been back for a long time, huh? You should make it a habit to check the weather forecast before setting out.” I was wearing a black overcoat, so I didn’t feel cold at all.

Meanwhile, Jane was standing next to me with folded arms. Her face had gotten a little red because of the cold wind. When she finally couldn’t stand it, she opened the suitcase at the very top and took out a black scarf. After she put it on, she looked much better. We chatted for a while until the taxi arrived.

“I’ll escort you to the hotel first.” I pushed the luggage cart to the trunk. The driver got off and helped me carry the suitcases.

“Okay. Thanks!” Jane glanced at the taxi driver and said, “Seems like you’re trying to keep a low profile while you’re here. Boswell said he wanted to arrange a driver and some more secretaries for you, but you refused both.”

“We have a driver back at the company, and he can drive me around on important occasions. Otherwise, I prefer driving myself. And I don’t need more secretaries. Having Chana is enough for me.”

I was never a material man, not to mention I was used to keeping a low profile because of my family background. Jane opened the door and was about to get in the car.

“Chana is abroad. It’s not convenient for you to communicate with each other from two entirely different time zones.”

“It’s fine.” I smiled and followed her into the car.

After escorting Jane to the hotel, I took a cab home. The villa was quiet. Only the lamps on the walls were still lit. I thought my grandpa had fallen asleep by now, but the second I entered the house and

before I could even put down my luggage, he showed up and said loudly, “You’re finally back, you little brat!” .

After putting my luggage down, I hugged him and bantered, “Why wouldn’t I come here? You’re here, after all!”
