Chapter 178 I ruined everything for her
Gilbert arrived at The Sandy Bay after midnight.
His face had become so lifeless that it could not hide his
Kelvin Hoover had long waited for his arrival. Upon seeing his arrival, he stood up and said, “Grandma has been waiting for you. Go upstairs to greet her.”
Gilbert mustered up a smile which looked very pitiful. Can you help me convey a message to her that I had failed to save Kisa. She may be pleased to hear this.”
Kelvin was speechless. He watched Gilbert drag his tired body upstairs.
Mrs. Kooper Sr. was standing at the top of the stairs, but he did not notice and walked straight past Mrs. Kooper Sr.
Mrs. Kooper Sr.’s heart wrenched when she overheard their conversation. “For a woman who is going to kill me, is it really worth it?”
Gilbert stopped in his tracks. “Do you think she was really going to kill you?”
“You’re doubting me?”
Gilbert turned around and fixed his gaze on Mrs. Kooper Sr. “Did you know? When you were in a coma, I was
praying you could wake up. I even made a promise to God that if you could wake up, I wouldn’t mind exchanging my life for yours…”
Mrs. Kooper Sr. burst into tears. She reached up to caress
Gilbert took a step back and said, “I was so eager for you to be well, but to stop me from saving Kisa. You did not hesitate to injure yourself. Why? I really would like to know why?”
Mrs. Kooper Sr.’s wrists were wrapped heavily in blood- stained bandages.
‘How ironic,‘ Gilbert thought.
When Gilbert decided to save Kisa, Davian had called him. He told him that his grandma had self–harmed again and threatened not to save Kisa.
It was at that moment, grief and helplessness drowned him entirely.
To this day, he could not forget the sadness and disappointment on Kisa’s face.
He really wanted to ask his grandma why she was so paranoid of Kisa to the point of wanting her to die.
Mrs. Kooper Sr. held his arm in panic and cried, “Don’t
hate grandma, I’m doing this for your own good.”
“For my own good?”
Gilbert mocked, “If it’s for my own good then why put me in this painful situation?”
“I am doing this for your own good. It is only when that woman dies, everything will be better. Really. Her birth was a mistake. Otherwise, you could be so happy. She ruined everything for you.”
“Gilbert…Gilbert…” Mrs. Kooper Sr. shouted at his icy cold back. Her grandson who she had cherished and loved, refused to look back. Nor did he call her grandma‘ coquettishly like before.
She clutched her chest in grief, repeatedly asking herself, ‘What did I do wrong?
No, that’s right. I did not do anything wrong. It was all that woman’s fault. The birth of that woman caused the downfall of our family’s happiness.”
For two consecutive days in a row, without any news or traces of Kisa and Howard’s whereabouts. It was as if they both disappeared into thin air, not even a speck of evidence could lead to finding them.
Gilbert leaned in his chair and smoked silently.
His temper has gotten grouchier each passing day, and no one dared to approach him.
It was at this time; Davian had suddenly gotten a call from his subordinates. A brief flash of joy appeared on his face and was immediately gone seconds later.
After hanging up, Davian was hesitant to speak. Gilbert exhaled a smoke ring and looked at him, “Speak!
