Chapter 193 Awfully Heartless
Gracie turned to Kelvin in shock.
Kelvin pursed his lips and turned to Kisa sadly, “Kisa,
don’t be like that. It’s true that Gilbert did all that, but he…”
“You’ll be willing to accept his treatment as long as I get down on my knees and beg you?” Gilbert gazed at Kisa deeply.
His expression was so earnest Kisa could not stop her heart from skipping a beat.
‘He’s really going to get on his knees and beg me? No! That’s not possible! How could someone as insufferable and arrogant as him be down on his knees to beg me? What’s more, he despises me! He must be playing a lovesick puppy to gain my trust! Once Kelvin has treated me, he’ll definitely exact his revenge on me tenfold. That must be it! That must certainly be it!‘ thought Kisa.
“Alright. I’ll kneel down and beg you, as long as you can live on healthily. I’ll even trade my life for it.”
This was Gilbert’s first time facing his true feelings and saying how he truly felt about her.
Ironically, and sadly, Kisa did not believe any of his words.
‘My heart hurts, but what else can I do? I want her to live
- on. I just want her to live on. Right now, the grudges,
hatred, and lies do not matter. All I know is, losing her for good would be more painful than the past five years,‘ thought Gilbert.
Under Kisa’s shocked gaze, Gilbert slowly bent his knees and knelt down.
Meanwhile, Kelvin turned away in discomfort.
Suddenly, Madalyn rushed in and yanked Gilbert up. She cried at him distressedly, “What are you doing? You’re throwing away your dignity for someone who tried to murder your grandmother? Are you trying to go against me?”
“Yeah, Gilbert. What’re you doing? I also don’t want Kisa to die, but she’s done so many bad things! She brought all of this upon herself,” Sharon chimed in.
She quickly added, “Moreover, look at how heartless Kisa is! She could’ve just accepted Kelvin’s treatment, yet she’s refusing treatment and using her life to threaten you to kneel before her. This… This is awfully heartless.”
Sharon’s words made Mrs. Kooper Sr. even more furious. She turned to Kelvin and roared, “I’m telling you; you better not give that woman treatment! I want her to die! She must die! How could she humiliate my precious grandson? She deserves to die! She must die!”
“Mrs. Kooper Sr.!” Kelvin shouted helplessly.
He continued, “Kisa didn’t humiliate Gilbert.”
“Don’t tell me she didn’t! She’s making my grandson kneel down to her. Is this not humiliating him?” Madalyn asked angrily with bloodshot eyes.
Then, she turned to throw a deathly glare at Kisa. She looked as if she was about to skin Kisa alive.
“Like mother like daughter. This woman is exactly like her mother–a heartless tramp. She should’ve died together with her mother!”
Kisa gripped the bedsheets tightly. Then, a sardonic smile appeared on her pale face, “That’s right. I was
humiliating Gilbert. Who are you all to call my mother all sorts of names? You can humiliate me, yet I can’t do the same to him? Only you all can sit on your high horses while harming others without a care, and I cannot?”
Soon after Kisa spoke, she felt a slap across her face.
“You cannot. In this world, you’re the last person who can treat my grandson this way!”
“Mrs. Kooper Sr.!” Gilbert quickly grabbed Madalyn.
Mrs. Kooper Sr. heaved violently. She pointed a trembling finger at Kisa, “Did you know that you were never meant to be born? Your existence was a mistake. That’s why you owe my grandson everything.”
