Chapter 206 It’s Scary, Right?
Gilbert stared at the alluring figure for a while, that familiar back made his heart tremble in pain. Just as Gilbert instinctively wanted to follow her, Davian interrupted him with a call. When he looked toward the figure again, the figure had already walked down the hall. He never saw the girl’s face after all. But the sense of familiarity was lingering in his heart.
Davian stared at Gilbert that seemed a bit preoccupied, and said, “Why don’t we notify Mr. Mccray that we’ll cancel today’s meeting? We could postpone it to tomorrow. It was such a long flight today, and you haven’t been resting well recently. Your body must be…”
“I’m fine!” Gilbert proceeded, “Did you pick Mr. Mccray’s gift yet?”
“Yes, sir. All done.”
“Let’s go,” Gilbert looked at the hallway again before leaving.
It was the first time Kisa wore a low–cut spaghetti strap dress, but the dress looked very high- end with satin, not vulgar at all. The dress was mauve making her skin fairer. Only Kisa was not very used to it and kept pulling up her dress.
Mia glanced at her and snorted, “This dress would be out of shape with a few more pulls. What’s the big deal? It’s just a little exposing.”
Mia’s bluntness made Kisa laugh embarrassingly. Just as Mia was full of contemning, she saw something on Kisa’s back with her eagle eye.

These were the burn marks five years ago. The scar on her forehead had slowly faded away, but the burn area on the back was too large. It was not easy to remove the scars entirely. The scars were on her back, so it did not matter whether they were removed or not. No one could see them after she wore clothes.
She had always shown her forehead scar in public, but no one knew about the scars on her back. ‘I reckon Gilbert didn’t realize the burns on my back when he forced me down,‘ Kisa
Mia came to her senses and shook her head. She could not help but think of those days.
That year, Jensen rushed back when he heard she was in trouble. When he returned, he only saw a fire that was unable to be put out. The fire was getting stronger, but no one was willing to rescue the people inside.
He secretly went in and recklessly saved a woman. She was unrecognizable by the smoked- covered face, burns all over her body, and a cut on the stomach with a dead baby inside.
That was the first time Mia saw Jensen break down, and it was for the woman he saved. That was also the first time she was too stunned to speak. She was stunned by Jensen’s tears and the
“Are you alright, Ms. Fallon?” Kisa could not resist and wave her hand in front of Mia upon
looking at her daze, “Did my scars frighten you?”
“No, it didn’t,” Mia blotted out the painful memories and said, “Let’s go back. Or else Jensen would get mad at me later.”
