Chapter 231 Inadvertently Hurt Her
Jensen rushed over to Kisa and knelt down with a look of panic she had never seen before on his face, “I’m sorry, I…”
“It’s fine. It’s fine…’
Kisa shook her head and continued smiling at him, “Really, it’s fine.”
Jensen frowned deeply.
He carefully carried her onto the couch, “Hold on, I’ll go get the medical kit.”
“It’s fine. It’s just a few minor cuts; I can handle them myself,” Kisa said as she frantically prepared to leave.
Suddenly, Jensen forcefully sat her on the couch and said, “Don’t move!”
Kisa stared at Jensen’s frantic figure and felt her heart race.
‘Why did I find Jensen a little terrifying earlier on? As far as I can remember, Jensen has always been a gentleman. Even when he suspected me of having a hidden agenda for getting close to Gilbert, he spoke in the gentlest tone. I’ve never seen Jensen act this way; what in the world happened? Did he go through something terrible while he was abroad for the past few years, causing him to change his temperament? Or did I never truly understand this man?‘
The wounds on Kisa’s palms and arms gushed with blood.
She continued staring at Jensen as if she did not feel any pain.
Moments later, Jensen returned with some rubbing alcohol, ointment, gauze, and a pair of
“It hurts, doesn’t it?” he pulled Kisa’s hand toward him.
Then, he removed the glass shards embedded in her hands with the tweezers.
When Jensen saw Kisa gritting her teeth from the pain, trying to stay silent, he felt awful.
for losing my temper just now.”
Kisa hurriedly shook her head and smiled, “It’s alright.”
Even though Kisa smiled as if she were fine, there was fear in her eyes.
Jensen felt awful and even a little angry.
Regardless, he tried to suppress his anger. He turned to Kisa, “Why aren’t you the slightest bit angry? You should blame me or ask why I lost my temper.”
However, Kisa only shook her head vigorously and remained silent.
Kisa was genuinely frightened. Even though she felt confused and bewildered, she did not dare to ask him.
‘Seeing how the memory made Jensen–someone who’s always been gentle–lose his cool, it evidently isn’t a good one. And since it isn’t a good memory, I better not bring it up. I don’t want to reopen a wound that’s about to close,‘ thought Kisa.
“Then… Could you treat me the way you treat Gilbert–causally? I’ve hurt you, so you should be mad at me. You shouldn’t tip–toe around me or feel afraid. You shouldn’t even think that you’re the one who’s at fault.”
However, Kisa continued to shake her head.
‘Jensen saved my life. Without him, I would’ve died in the hands of Gilbert and Mrs. Kooper Sr. that night. It’s all thanks to him that I’m able to live on to take revenge on them. That’s why I won’t take my anger out on him or blame him for anything,‘ thought Kisa.
Seeing Kisa being so cautious and polite made Jensen feel frustrated.
‘No matter what I do, I still can’t compare to Gilbert,‘ he thought
Even though she hated Gilbert, she had never acted this courteously in front of him.
Kisa’s politeness and courteousness felt like a huge blow to Jensen.
Jensen promptly fell silent and continued fixing up Kisa’s wound carefully.
Jensen had always been conscientious; so Kisa’s wound was bandaged perfectly.
Kisa thanked him profusely.
Jensen smiled sardonically, “You don’t have to thank me. I’m the cause of these wounds, aren’t I?”
