Hard To Say Goodbye novel Chapter 53

Hal's heart was full of anger. Because of his disdain for the entertainment industry, he felt unfair. He always believed that if Nora chose to be with Murphy, it would prove that he was not as good as an actor.

If the seed of hatred took root and sprouted in his heart, it would spread very fast. Hal was afraid that one day he would lose his reason and do something outrageous.

If there was love in your heart, you would feel warm and be active; if there was hatred in your heart, you would feel cold and be evil.

Although Hal were sitting in the office, his heart had already flown out. He wanted to find out what was going on with Nora and confirm whether what Grace said was true or not.

After all the employees left, Hal got in the car and rushed out in a hurry.

He learned from Grace that Nora could come back to Beijing this morning. Grace told him about the time she arrived.

Grace knew that it was impossible for Nora to fall in love with Hal, because Murphy had already taken root and sprouted in her heart.

She wanted to tell Hal to give up her as soon as possible. She didn't want Hal to waste time and love on a person who didn't like him. It would be painful.

But she couldn't tell Hal the truth directly. No matter how rich and sincere he was, it would hurt Hal's self-esteem and made him lose face.

She hoped that Hal could understand her efforts.

She hoped that Hal could give up loving Nora and stop being entangled with her all the time. That would be a fruitless thing. As a man, the real man was the one who could take it up and put it down.

Hal's heart was full of resentment. He clenched the steering wheel, stepped on the accelerator, glared ahead, and ran all the way straight to the downstairs of Daniel's Agency.

After more than ten hours of high-speed travel, Murphy was too sleepy to open his eyes.

Nora looked at him and said, "After sending me home, I'll go to work by myself. You'd better go home to catch up on sleep. Don't go to the company this morning."

Murphy smiled, "Oh, I see. That's what I think too. I'm too sleepy. I have to go home and have a rest."

Nora could sleep in the car. She was not sleepy at all because she had been sitting there for a long time. Her waist was sore and her legs were numb. She could not stand straight because of the pain, and her legs could not walk steadily.

She went back home and sorted out the things she brought back from her hometown. Later, she brought some specialities to her colleagues in the film crew. After a simple wash, she went downstairs with the things and was about to take a bus to the company.

From a distance, she saw Hal standing beside the car and looking back and forth as if he was looking for something. 'Is Nora looking for me?' she wondered. 'How did he know I was back?'

Nora walked to Hal unhurriedly and said, "What are you doing here? Waiting for someone?"

Hal turned around and saw it was Nora. He looked at her face fiercely and said, "Why didn't you tell me that you were going back to your hometown? Wouldn't I send you back?"

It was the first time that Nora had seen he was so angry. She looked at him and said, "It's too hasty to make a decision. I only have three days off. I didn't come to tell anyone."

Hal said to her, "I've liked you for so long. Can't you feel it? Why did you do such a thing to make me sad?"
