Chapter 161 I was Too Naive
It was obvious that Davian had just regained consciousness from being knocked out. He touched the back of his neck, looking dazed. “Mrs. Kooper, what happened? I heard they said that Mrs. Kooper Sr. had woken up.”
Kisa nodded. “Did you see the person who knocked you out?” she asked.
The mention of this made Davian angry, “I listened to your instructions and hid in the closet to monitor everything in the room, but there was no movement at all. I had to go to the toilet, so I decided to head out for a bit, but someone hit me in the back of my head with a stick. If I catch whoever did this to me, I’m going to kill them!”
Kisa was not surprised at Davian’s reply. As she expected, Sharon would never have let him see her when she knocked him out.
Davian saw her pained expression, and couldn’t help but ask, “Mrs. Kooper, what happened last night? Did you get answers when you questioned Sharon Case? When I was in there, I asked the others, but they didn’t even give me a glance.”
Kisa lowered her gaze and laughed at herself, “I was too naive and underestimated Sharon.”
‘If Davian hadn’t been knocked out, he could have witnessed Sharon hurting grandma. But…‘
She took a deep breath and said, “It’s nothing. We’ll talk about it when grandma wakes up.”
The more she thought about it, the more scared and lost she felt. ‘I can’t figure out why grandma hates me.’
Suddenly, Davian voiced out again, “Mrs. Kooper, remember how you asked me to check the whereabouts of Sharon Case the night Mrs. Kooper Sr. was injured?”
“Have you found it?”
“One of the boys called me and said Sharon Case accompanied her mother, Carolyn Marshall, to the beauty salon that night. The people at the salon confirmed this and even dug out a receipt from five years ago. The mother and daughter were in the beauty salon from the evening till the early morning.”
“That’s impossible!” Kisa clenched her fists as she felt more and more uncomfortable.
‘The perpetrator back then was clearly Sharon. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have taken such a risk to kill Mrs. Kooper Sr. in the middle of the night. The people at the beauty salon must be lying. Sharon might have also left in the middle of the session, and the beauty salon didn’t notice. But there’s no evidence of this.‘
‘I can only hope that grandma was not in her right mind and mistook me as the perpetrator.‘
Mrs. Kooper Sr. woke up again in the afternoon. The servants made her some food and brought it into her room.
Kisa had been waiting anxiously outside the door. She did not dare to go in without Mrs. Kooper Sr.’s permission, because she did not want to upset her again.
After she had paced back and forth outside the door for a long time, Davian finally opened the door and said, “Mrs. Kooper Sr. wants you to come in.”
Coas Teo Nave
Kisa was overjoyed at the sound of that. She ignored the complex look Davian had in his eyes and walked into the room. But the kind and caring grandmother she remembered was long
The Mrs. Kooper Sr. in front of her today looked at her in disgust. It made her feel lost and confused as her heart sank.
Instead of rushing toward Mrs. Kooper Sr. in excitement like she did before, she stood there restlessly and voiced out, “Grandma.”
“Shut up. You have no right to call me that.”
‘She’s clearly conscious right now, but she still hates me.‘ Kisa did not know what had gone
“Grandma, what’s the matter with you? I’m Kisa. Did I do something wrong? Grandma, why are you –”
“How dare you have the face to say that? I loved and cared for you, but you pushed me down the stairs…”
“No, I didn’t!” Kisa felt her heart sink into the abyss as if her only lifeline was gone. She felt hopeless and unsettled. “Grandma, you know it wasn’t me. Why are you saying that it’s me?”
