Chapter 105 Asking For Medication Kelvin frowned. “If you are not asking me to heal you, then you–.”
“I would like to ask you to prescribe me some wonder drug.” Kisa stared at his surprised look and slowly said, “The painkiller I took isn‘t effective anymore. I could not buy wonder drugs from the drugstore, and the hospital wouldn‘t prescribe me. But I know you must have a way.”
Kelvin‘s expression turned grave upon hearing that.
“You have to know, wonder drugs have an excellent effect in relieving pain, but it is extremely damaging to the body, not to mention it is addictive. You already have less than a year left, and you will only have about six months left if you take this medication.”
“It doesn‘t matter.”
Faced with impending death, Kisa was calm and somewhat perverse. “I can do many things in half a year. If not taking this medication, I may collapse at any time, and I will feel annoyed with myself and Gilbert will shame and humiliate me.”
“Could it be that you have misunderstood him? He treats you this way because he doesn‘t know that you are dying.” Kelvin tried to comfort her. He did not like her before, but now he felt she had changed, becoming deserving of love and pity. But the truth of five years ago had not been uncovered, and since she was still the biggest suspect who hurt Gilbert‘s grandmother, he did not dare to treat her.
This ambivalence made Kelvin feel bad. In fact, he hoped Gilbert would know about this woman‘s condition and ask him to treat her so that he would not have to carry this burden. But Kisa was stubborn and would not let him tell Gilbert about her condition.
When Kisa heard his consolation, she just let out a faint smile, her indifference to life and death heart–breaking. “There was never any misunderstanding between Gilbert and me. He has always hated me and cursed me to death. This is the truth. So don‘t leak half a word to him about my health. For the rest of my remaining time, I don‘t want to hear his taunts and humiliations. I–it hurts.”
Kelvin furrowed his brow, listening as she spoke slowly, as if she was enduring great pain.” I can‘t even guarantee that I can heal you after you have taken the wonder drug,” he said.
“Even if you can guarantee it, Gilbert will not let you heal me.,” Kisa said with amusement.
“But didn‘t you say that you were going to make Gilbert beg you to accept my treatment?”
Kisa was silent for a long time. “Do you think that‘s a possibility?”
Kelvin suddenly became silent, figuring that Gilbert would definitely not beg her to accept his treatment. After all, it was still an open question whether Gilbert will let him treat her. Seeing Kelvin‘s silence, Kisa smiled self–deprecatingly. She then looked at Kelvin with pleading eyes. “For the sake of you and I have known each other since childhood, please prescribe me some wonder painkiller. Don‘t worry, I will pay for it without fail.” Kelvin felt terrible at hearing her last sentence. He asked in a deep voice, “Do you have to take this drug?”
“Better give it to me now.”
Seeing the determination and firmness in her eyes, he finally sighed. “Give me a moment. I will check it out in my pharmacy.”
Kisa was relieved as she watched Kelvin go upstairs. In fact, when she first came, she was a little worried that he would not help her. After all, the Kelvin she remembered was unruly, indifferent and spiteful; today‘s Kelvin was humane in contrast. It seemed that the woman named Gracie had really changed him a lot.
As she was thinking about it, there was a sudden sound of something breaking in the garden.
