Chapter 180 She won’t live for long
Gilbert grabbed him by his collar. “Dying? What do you mean?! Tell me clearly what you meant.‘
“She’s going to die. Don’t you notice? That woman
throws up so much blood constantly… Hahaha…she’s going to die…”
“What did you do to her?” Gilbert asked fiercely.
“I didn’t do anything to her. She puked the blood herself. Really! It was her that made herself spew out the blood continuously. And there was another guy. He was really good looking. She couldn’t stop crying when she was laying in his arms, repeatedly saying that she is going to die soon…‘
“Who is that man? Where are they now?”
“That guy…that guy…,” Howard murmured.
Suddenly, he started shrieking once more, “No, don’t hit me. Please don’t hit me. I am an international superstar. You cannot hit me. Ah…That wasn’t me. It wasn’t me. I didn’t please that rich woman; I didn’t sell my body. It wasn’t me. Ah… Help, help…”
Howard broke free from Gilbert’s grasp and ran away yelling. Gilbert staggered two steps as the scene of Kisa throwing up blood flashed through his mind. Cold shivers
ran down his spine.
Davian noticed that Gilbert looked extremely pale, “Mr. Kooper, are you okay?”
“He said, Kisa puked a lot of blood. He said…she was going to die.”
“He’s a madman. He doesn’t know what he was speaking about. Don’t mind too much of what he said, Mr. Kooper. Ms. Becker is so lively; she must have escaped safely. Think about it this way, at the time it was only Ms. Becker and Howard. If it wasn’t Ms. Becker who made him crazy, then who else could it be?”
“You overlooked what he had said just now, that about another man.” Gilbert narrowed his eyes, a familiar face briefly flashed in his mind.
Davian had always felt that Howard was a bit of a loon, but he could not pinpoint it nor take him seriously.
The Sandy Bay.
Kelvin was helping Mrs. Kooper Sr. to change the dressing of her wounds. “Be careful not to get it wet, or it’ll get infected,” Kelvin warned.
Mrs. Kooper Sr. was staring out the window absentmindedly.
Kelvin pursed his lips and said uncomfortably, “In the past two days, Gilbert has been looking for Kisa. He’s about to go crazy from it.”
Mrs. Kooper Sr. turned around and looked at him, “Do you think what I did was really wrong?”
Kelvin did not respond.
Mrs. Kooper Sr. sobbed, “I just wanted to protect my own grandson from harm. What’s so good about that woman? She’s so vicious and pushed me down the stairs. Why do you all still protect her?”
“We are not protecting her, it’s just. Grandmother, just why did you have to threaten Gilbert with your own life?” As soon as this was mentioned, Mrs. Kooper Sr. covered her mouth and cried in sorrow.
Kelvin let out a deep sigh. “Gilbert hates it the most when anyone threatens him. And deliberately, his own beloved grandmother is the one threatening him. Could you even imagine how agonizing it was for him to decide?”
“I… I didn’t want it to be like this,” Mrs. Kooper Sr. cried inaudibly. “I really had no other ideas. I just wanted that woman dead. When that woman dies, my grandson will live a better life.”
“Why can’t you just accept her? Allow her to accompany Gilbert, that way he can live a good life.”
“No, no, certainly not. It must not ever be her who is by my grandson’s side.” Mrs. Kooper Sr. who was crying in grief, became stubborn in an instant.
Kelvin who could not refute the words of his grandmother could only let out a heavy sigh, “Actually, you did not really need to threaten Gilbert’s life with your own. Kisa does not have much longer to live.”
Mrs. Kooper Sr. looked at Kelvin in surprise, “What do you mean by not having much longer to live?”
“The fire in the prison from five years ago. All her internal organs were severely damaged. When I found out that she was terminally ill, she only had one year left to live. She had asked me for special painkillers to relieve her pain, which only sped up her death. She only has about half a year left to live.”
