Chapter 153 How Dramatic
Everyone except Kisa started eating.
Suddenly, Sharon made a dejected expression, “Why aren’t you eating, Kisa? Do you not like my cooking? If you don’t like these dishes, I could make you something else.”
“It’s fine,” Kisa responded coolly.
Then, Kisa started eating the dishes that Sharon had eaten.
‘Even if Sharon did something to the dishes today, I should be fine as long as I only eat the ones she’s already eaten,‘ Kisa thought.
She proceeded to take more of the dishes that Sharon had eaten.
Out of nowhere, Sharon took out a bottle of red wine.
“Gilbert, Mrs. Kooper Sr. regaining consciousness is good news. Shall we have a drink to celebrate?”
“Whatever you like,” said Gilbert.
It was hard for Kisa to tell if the reason he gave such a response was that he felt happy, or that he liked Sharon.
Kisa watched as Gilbert went along with Sharon’s wishes throughout the entire meal; she felt suffocated and awful. She also had to pick at her food carefully for the entirety of the meal, since she wasn’t sure whether it was safe to eat.
Sharon poured Gilbert and Kelvin each a glass of wine.
Just as she got to Kisa, Kisa spoke, “My body can’t handle alcohol well, so it’s better if I don’t drink. You guys can go ahead.”
“Just a little won’t hurt. It’s a rare occasion for everyone to be this happy!”
“If I said that I’d die if I drank alcohol, would you still ask me to drink it?” Kisa asked half- jokingly.
Sharon immediately looked offended and cried, “Just say you won’t be drinking, Kisa. Why did you have to say such a thing? It’s really inauspicious to constantly say that you’ll die.”
‘Sharon is trying to remind Gilbert how I “pretended to die” again,‘ she thought sarcastically
As expected, Gilbert set down the wine glass unhappily.
He stared at Kisa icily, “When did you become so fragile that even drinking some wine would kill you? How dramatic.”
Kisa gripped the wine glass tightly.
‘I really have the urge to down the entire bottle of wine just to die in front of him. However, on second thought, risking my life just to spite Gilbert doesn’t seem worth it. Besides, it’s not like he even cares about me at all,‘ she thought.
Kelvin noticed the awkward atmosphere and immediately tried to reduce the tension.
“Don’t be like that, Gilbert. Kisa still hasn’t recovered from when you hit her and sent her
flying. It would be harder for her to recover if she drank,” he quickly said.
Gilbert suddenly tightened his grip on the wine glass.
He threw Kisa a complicated look, “Your injury…”
“It’s not bad enough to kill me.” Kisa responded icily
‘I’m injured because of him. There’s no need for him to pretend like he regrets what he did. He’s so fake!‘ she thought sarcastically
Sharon thought for a bit and said with a smile, “Since Kisa can’t drink, we’ll go ahead and drink without her I’ll pour her a glass of non–alcoholic drink later.
Just as Gilbert and Kelvin took a sip of the wine, Sharon suddenly shouted, “Oh, I completely forgot! It’s my time of the month, so I shouldn’t be drinking. Oh, what a shame!”
Everyone understood what she meant by “time of the month“, so nobody said a thing.
Then, Sharon came back with two glasses of non–alcoholic drinks.
She placed one of them in front of Kisa and held on to the other.
Kisa gazed at the bottle of wine. She was certain that Sharon had done something to it
‘Since I’m not drinking the wine, Sharon must’ve also done something to this drink she just poured for me,‘ Kisa thought.
“Kisa, since you can’t take alcohol, this drink should be fine, right?”
Kisa narrowed her eyes at Sharon before laughing suddenly, “Of course! Thank you for pouring me the drink.”
Then, she took a small sip
