Ex-wife, Please Come Back

Chapter 297 I Hope So

"I hope so that they're a lot happier in their afterlife than they were when they were alive. They have suffered a lot while they were alive, but now, they won't have to go through any of that."

James hissed with a sigh, as though he hated the past. Jacob stood up, but could not say a word.

"Forget it, Uncle James, it's all over now. Though the past has been a terrible and regrettable one, I am with you now." Although Jacob said that, he did not find those words comforting enough, even for a smart man like him.

"Sometimes, I wonder if she still blames me..." Hearing James' shocking words, jacob was speechless.

Everyone was persistent about something. Perhaps, she was James'.

"Do you miss her, Uncle James? You could go see her, right?" Jacob said with caution, after giving it some careful thought.

"That would be pointless because I threw her ashes into the ocean after her death. She doesn't even have a grave. The only place she lives is in my heart." Saying that, James placed his hands on his knees and hung his head.

Jacob could see that he was in a lot of pain. He wanted to comfort him, but could not find the right words to say to him.

"Never mind about me. Go to bed, Jacob. There's no need for you to boil the water, I won't be needing it. I just want to sit here for a while. Good sleep has become a rare thing in my life. I barely get any sleep at all these days,"

James said with a heavy sigh.

That moment, Jacob felt as though he had grown ten years older.

"I'll sit with you, Uncle James, I am not sleepy either," Jacob said as he walked over to the couch. He could relate to the way James was feeling.

"I'm fine, Jacob, you can go to bed. There's a lot of troubles with the company too, lately. You should go to work tomorrow,"

James said in a low voice. Easy life was a privilege that no one had. Everyone had their own pains to deal with and James knew that better than anyone else.
