SUGAR DATING WITH CEO - Chapter 201 - 201 He Is Not That Strong
201 He Is Not That Strong
Arthur used all means to get Kalea back to him. He even actually helped out with Kai’s work in order to have more opportunities to be close to Kalea. Seeing his sugar baby who always sits sweetly in the gazebo, the laughter that Kalea shows continues to make Arthur fall even more in love. Even though the laughter and smiles were not for him. Kalea still has a sour face when dealing with him, but Arthur tries to remain patient, because he really wants to prove that he loves Kalea and is no longer the jerk Arthur used to be.
“Lea, this is for you,” Arthur said for the umpteenth time, handing something to Kalea.
Kalea sighed, looking at Arthur lazily. “What else is this? I told you there’s no need to give me anything,” Kalea refused, getting tired of Arthur’s treatment of her.
Arthur sat down next to Kalea, and began to attach a pastel purple bead bracelet with a love shape in the center. Kalea frowned, but did not dismiss it and let Arthur put the bracelet on her right hand at will. Arthur smiled sweetly, he gently stroked Kalea’s hand and said, “I know you’ll be very pretty with it.”
“Why all of a sudden?” Kalea asked.
“I saw a shop that sells things like this. At first I wanted to buy ready-made ones, but I’m interested in making them myself.”
“You made it yourself?”
Arthur nodded, “I made it while thinking about you. I hope you don’t reject this one,” Arthur said with a bitter smile. Remembering that whatever Arthur had given her before, Kalea had rejected it and it continued to hurt the man’s feelings. Although in front of Kalea, Arthur did not really show it.
Even though Arthur did not give her the expensive things he always gave her in the past. Arthur knew that wealth would not make Kalea melt because the girl was used to being showered with wealth by him when their relationship was still fine.
“Why are you doing something feminine? Not long ago you were arranging flowers, and now you’re making bead bracelets?”
“It’s fun, and it will look really pretty on you. That’s why I have no problem doing it. Even though the flowers I made were rejected outright by you.”
Arthur was strange. During his time in the village, the man really did a lot of things that were not like the Arthur Kalea had known. Arthur gardening? Working directly in the sun, arranging flowers, and other actions that Kalea could not stop thinking about.
Pulling her arm away from Arthur, Kalea stared at the beautiful bracelet on her hand. She could not lie that the bracelet suited her perfectly. “Thank you.”
Kalea knitted her eyebrows. “Huh?”
“What did you say?”
“… I’m said thank you?”
“You’re going to wear it? Not going to be rejected or thrown away?”
Arthur looked so happy, he could not hide his feelings. He wanted to hug Kalea tightly but could not for fear of making her change her mind. “You’re very welcome, Lea.”
Arthur’s one effort that Kalea accepted was still not comparable to what Kai did. The man with the scarlet hair was more accepted and continued to make Kalea happy than when she was with Arthur.
Arthur threw a few small stones into the river, making the sound of the water rippling from there. He had a blank look in his eyes, thinking about all the things that had happened. Today, he had not met Kalea because his feelings were somehow filled with sadness. Remembering everything that had happened, from the way Kalea treated him and Kai that was so one-sided. He was not that strong of a man to see the girl he loved having more fun with another man. Arthur was very jealous, but unfortunately he could not do anything because he did not want Kalea to hate him.
Arthur’s hands stopped throwing stones, slowly resting his head on his knees. Arthur bit his lower lip, then said in a voice that held back tears, “it turns out I’m not that strong to go through with it.”
Later that afternoon, when Arthur felt ready to meet Kalea, he did not find her in her usual place. Arthur approached Owen who had just gotten out of the car.
“Owen, where are Lea and Kai?” Arthur asked, who was still looking around for the two people.
“Hm? I don’t know, but last time I saw them, Kai said he wanted to build a swing on a hill not far from here.”
Owen nodded. “Kai made the swing for Lea. Actually, Lea doesn’t want to trouble Kai, but since Kai wants to make Kalea comfortable here, he’ll do anything for Lea, haha,” Owen replied with a soft laugh, which only made Arthur’s heart heat up even more.
“Oh, thank you.” Without much thought, Arthur walked straight to the place Owen said. The hill, who knows which hill, Arthur would look for the two people. His footsteps accelerated up the hill until he finally saw two people he recognized in one of the large trees there. Arthur’s breathing went up and down, not intending to approach them yet, just looking at them from a distance.
Kai who pushed Kalea from behind to get the swing moving, and Kalea who laughed happily. They seemed to be enjoying the moment together. Again, Arthur’s heart felt a great pain. As much effort as Kai put into Kalea, Arthur could not underestimate the man. Although Kai’s efforts might seem like something simple in anyone’s eyes, but seeing Kalea so happy, it must have meant a lot.
Even though Arthur had also tried hard for Kalea, but the girl’s heart seemed to have been closed tightly for him.
Arthur could not deny that Kalea looked comfortable with Kai, but he still could not accept it. He should have been there, he should have been enjoying Kalea’s sweet smile. Arthur looked down, deciding not to approach them. Arthur’s feelings were stirred up again, there was no way he could show his chaotic self like this.
