Chapter 595 You Never Were
The calmness in Natalie’s tone caused Cedric’s world to collapse in an instant.
His mind went blank as if his entire world had shattered.
This feeling was unbearable, and Cedric was now bearing everything that Natalie had once endured.
This woman had started out from hysteria to her current calmness when dealing with him. It happened because she must have accumulated enough disappointment and pain to reach such
“You’re not, Nat. You never were…”
She wasn’t and never had been.
Cedric knew very well who Natalie truly was. From the beginning, he recognized that she wasn’t a substitute for anyone.
Everything before her eyes was black.
She couldn’t see anything. How could she see through people’s hearts?

What a headache!
As for Cedric…!
Forget about their past.
Right now, while Natalie was in the most difficult period of her life….
What would Cedric choose?
Would he choose to leave Natalie’s side?
If he did that…!
Lydia and Xyla knew what would happen.
It was simple.
If Cedric chose to leave this time… the already challenging path between them would become.
even more difficult.
Previously, Lydia and Xyla had significant reservations about Cedric.
