The Kiss that Sparked it All novel Chapter 1291

Upon hearing the name “Lady Lotus”, Balfour looked taken aback, then sighed lightly. "Well, then what? Did you see the painting?"

Ellinor shook her head. "Nope! Theo bought it ahead of time, and he deliberately kept it from me."

Balfour raised an eyebrow. "So, what you're saying is?"

Ellinor cut straight to the chase. "I want you to help me buy that painting from Theo. No matter the cost, I will pay!"

Balfour squinted in thought. "Money isn't the problem. Getting that painting from Theo is the problem. Plus, he bought it knowing you would want it, so he won't let it go easily."

Ellinor arched an eyebrow. "So, what you're saying is you can't do it?"

Balfour gently patted Ellinor's head. "It's tricky, but if you want it, I'll do my best. It might take some time though. Can you wait?"

Ellinor nodded. "I have no problem with waiting, as long as I can get Lady Lotus's self-portrait."

Balfour looked at Ellinor tenderly. "You want to see what our mother looked like that badly?"

Ellinor looked up at him. "Don't you?"

Balfour sighed. "I do. But she's gone now; it's enough to remember her. Clinging too tightly can be exhausting, Ellinor. I hope you can let go of the past."

Ellinor brushed off Balfour's hand from her head. "I can't let go! Even if the whole world betrays my mother, I won't! You can forget about the pain she went through, but I can't!"
