As the weather turned warmer, the fireflies were also becoming more active. Their glow dotted the silent night.
A cool breeze blew past, and Olivia sneezed.
It was only then that Ethan straightened up.
He walked toward her with a glass bottle in his hand.
He must have been catching the fireflies for a while now. There were around a dozen fireflies in the glass bottle.
It wasn’t as magnificent as the one on the island, but the blinking lights in the bottle were still quite
“Are you hungry?” Ethan naturally passed the bottle to her, but Olivia didn’t take it.
He casually hung it on the tent. Then, he took off his coat and draped it over Olivia’s body.
“It’s getting warmer, but it’s still cold in the mountains.
“You didn’t eat much for dinner, so you must be hungry. Look what I prepared for
Olivia looked at him and frowned. “Why did you bring me to a place like this?”
Taking her hand, Ethan led her to the roll-up table.
“There may be an Aquarid meteor shower tonight. I remember you saying that you wanted to wait for a meteor shower.”
In the past, her heart was filled with dreamy things, and she loved everything wonderful.
Back then, Olivia dreamed about waiting for the meteor shower with her beloved.
She thought that it would be the happiest time of her life.
But Ethan was very busy back then, so he kept putting it off.
Olivia would smile and say, “It’s okay. We have all the time in the world. I can wait. It’s not urgent, anyway.”
But no one expected life to be filled with uncertainties.
The “all the time in the world” she spoke of only lasted a few years.
Fresh ingredients were laid out on the roll-up table, and the barbecue grill was lit.
String lights in the shapes of stars and moons were hung across the canopy.
Everything was extremely beautiful.
It was the camping trip she longed for.
She would feast on barbecue in the dark outdoors as she watched stars falling from the sky.
He never forgot about it.
Olivia stood under the lights. There was no expression of joy on her exquisite face.
Instead, she stared coldly at Ethan as she spoke in a faint voice.
“18-year-old Olivia wanted to watch a meteor shower with her beloved.
“Do you know what 21-year-old me wants to do?”
Ethan pursed his thin lips. “I do. You want to get revenge.”
Olivia stared at the handsome face.
In the past, her heart would skip a beat when she glanced at him. But now, she only had complicated feelings in her heart.
She felt regret and hatred.
But there was no love in her heart.
“No, if there truly is a meteor shower, I want to make a wish.”
Olivia took a step forward. In her flats, she stood on tiptoe as she leaned in to speak in Ethan’s ear.
She said, “I wish I never meet you again until the day I die.”
If she hated him, she would still want to get back at him. But she didn’t want to get involved with this man any longer.
Ethan held his breath. He parted his lips, hesitating.
In the end, he said, “Do you hate me that much?”
“Yes, I only feel hate and disgust toward you.”
A gust of wind blew past, causing the lights on the tent to sway.
The dull yellow glow quivered.
“Remember how much you hated me in those two years? That’s how much I hate you now.
“This feeling is only going to get stronger.
“Ethan, there is betrayal, deceit, hatred, and regret between us. But there will never be love.
“I feel disgusted every time I see your face.”
As Olivia’s voice reached his ears, Ethan felt his body tremble.
He realized how Olivia had felt when he hurt her back then.
Every word was like a sharp blade
There wasn’t any blood in sight, but he was in unbearable pain.
