Ex-Husband’s Regret Novel Chapter 291

Chapter 0291

I was in the kitchen contemplating what to do about the Emma issue. Travis left a few hours ago after he basically begged the entire time. It was now four, and I expected Noah to come home anytime now. Rowan would be home at five or six, so I still had time to think.

Emma and I never really saw eye–to–eye. Mostly because I was jealous she had the guy I wanted. She used to mainly ignore me and behave like I didn’t exist. The only time she was violent and hostile towards

me was after she found out Rowan and I slept together.

I don’t blame her, though. I would have reacted in the same manner. So I’ve never really held a grudge for the way she treated me after she found out the truth. This new Emma, though, is different. I honestly don’t understand if her heartbreak drove her to become this way or if something else happened along the way. 2

Travis, on the other hand, has always been hostile. His snide remarks and his angry and disgusted gazes,

not to mention how he would literally go out of his way to emotionally hurt me.

All these make me question whether I should help him or not. I mean, does he even have any right to ask

this of me? And would it be cruel or selfish of me if I didn’t talk to Rowan on their behalf? It’s not like I

owe them anything in any case.

A frustrated scream, followed by a loud bang, pulls me from my thoughts. I get down from the bar stool,

leaving my half–eaten bowl of ice cream, and rush to the living room.

I’m surprised to find Noah, who looked as if he was about to murder someone.

Throwing his bag pack angrily on the sofa, he lets out yet another growl filled with anger and frustration.

“What is it, my love?” I ask gently while approaching him cautiously. “What’s got you so angry?”

He looks up at me. I see the fire burning behind grey eyes that are similar to his dad. Noah is chilled, and

nothing ever fazes the boy. So whatever made him angry must be pretty significant.

“It’s that girl again!” he yells and starts pacing.

“What girl?”


He shouts her name as if it were something vile and disgusting. Like he couldn’t even stand the taste of it on his lips.

The girl who left you a note?”

He nods his head.

“Okay so what did she did this time?” I ask curiously.

Whoever this girl is, I have to hand it to her. She was able to ruffle my boy’s feather. That’s an


Pink taints his cheek as he mumbles some words.

“You’ve got to speak up, Noah. I didn’t get a word you said”

He inhales sharply before saying. “She said that one day she’s going to marry me and that we’ll have lots

of babies.”

I swear I try to keep all seriousness and any amusement from reflecting on my face, but it’s a damn losing


“Mom!” He stares daggers at me. “This isn’t funny.”

“I’m sorry, Noah.” I pull him to me, but he resists my embrace.

“I’m guessing you don’t like her?”

“Of course not. I find her really annoying; in fact, I hate her,” he pauses. “If I ever marry someone, then it’ll be someone like you. Classy, elegant, and beautiful. Someone really smart. Not a girl who finds mud and

bugs interesting.”

I just stare at him, noticing the stubborn glint in his eyes. Noah was going to be a force to be reckoned with when he grows. I mean, damn, he’s only ten and already knows what he wants in life and his wife.

“Did you talk to her like I told you?”

“Yes, but she wouldn’t listen.”

I honestly didn’t know how to handle the situation. Aside from annoying him, Sierra didn’t seem like she

was causing any harm.

“First of all, you shouldn’t hate on anybody…“.

But she…”

No, buts, Noah” I scold him. “I’ve already told you this multiple times. Hating someone takes a lot of

energy which would have been used in doing something productive.”

Reluctantly, he nods his head.


“Second of all, she probably just has a crush on you. It’s normal for both boys and girls to have crushes on each other; it shouldn’t worry you because crushes fade after some time, especially as you grow older, so don’t let it get to you. If it becomes too much, just talk to your teacher about it, okay?”

Well, I hope that I am right and that it’s just a stupid crush. If it’s something else, something like what I felt for Rowan at that age, then the girl will be in serious trouble. I know firsthand what unrequited love feels

like. It hurts like a motherfucking bitch.

“Qkay, Mom,” he says after a while. This time, more calmly.

I hug him. “Okay, now go change out of your uniform.”

“Thank you, Mom,” he says, kissing my cheek. “You always make me feel better.”

With that, he takes his bag and runs upstairs, just as the door opens and Rowan walks in.

“What are you doing, kneeling on the floor?” He looks puzzled as he stares at me.

“You’re home early.”

“Yeah…I decided to come finish the rest of my work at home,” he replies. “You still haven’t answered my


“Oh, I was having a talk with Noah. Looks like there is a girl who has a crush on him and won’t leave him alone, though according to him, he doesn’t like her much.”

I expected a lot of things from Rowan. What I didn’t expect was him pulling me up from the ground and

kissing the daylight out of me.

When he finally pulls away, he is grinning while I’m doing all I can to recover from the scorching kiss.

“It reminds me of us. How you were always up in my space and following me around. I used to hate it back then, and it drove me fucking insane, but now I can’t get enough of you… Maybe our son has met his


I just smiled, not saying a word. He gives me a peck before telling me that he’ll be in his office. He leaves,

and I’m left standing in the middle of the living room, my heart in a tight fist.

Rowan is right. This is how we began.

My only prayer is that, for Sierra’s sake, what she feels is nothing more than a crush, because I couldn’t

bear it if history repeated itself with our son and a girl was hurt in the process like I was.
