Chapter 239 A Set Up
Seeing Christopher’s unnatural and guilty look, Kisa could immediately guess that the ‘ vacation’ was a set up.
“You’re busy every day. It’s so rare for Kisa to make time for us. Can’t you take the day off and spend time with her? What kind of a father are you?”
Carolyn immediately told Christopher off.
Christopher only pulled a long face. He then remained silent.
Kisa quickly responded, “It’s fine. Dad is busy with work. I understand. So, tomorrow it’s just you, me, and Sharon together?”
“And Kelvin,” added Sharon as she sipped on her drink.
Deep down, Kisa was startled when she heard the word ‘Kelvin‘.
They really did involve Kelvin in their plan.
She pretended to be surprised again. “Is he willing to go? I remember he doesn’t really like activities like this. Plus, he’s the only guy. With his character…”
“If he doesn’t follow us, what should I do with my face? He must treat it every day, and he promised me to do so. It is also his grandpa’s order. Even if he doesn’t want to be there, he’s obliged to follow us.”
Kisa understood everything.
‘Kelvin is afraid of his grandpa the most. What more to say when grandpa and Carolyn are related.‘
Initially, Kisa could not understand. With Kelvin’s personality, why would he allow Sharon to manipulate him? She now knew the main reason. It was Carolyn who used grandpa’s name to pressure him.
After Kisa went home, she did not let her guard down. Every second, she was holding onto the taping device and listened to it, in fear of missing any important updates.
If the mother–daughter duo succeed with their plans, Kisa would not be the only victim. Kelvin would be involved too.
Whenever Kisa thought of Gracie’s gentle and sweet face, she would squint her eyes.
Gracie and Kelvin’s happy life was something which Kisa had always admired and longed for. No matter what, she would not allow Carolyn and Sharon ruin it.
During dinner time, Kisa placed the tapping device on her table. She listened in while eating.
‘Since they’re going to take action starting tomorrow, I’m sure they’ll discuss the details and run through the plan once today.‘
Jensen noticed that Kisa was extremely focused as she had not touched her food at all. He could not help but said, “Have some food. I’m listening attentively too.”
Kisa came back to her senses and shook her head.
She wanted to make sure that she was paying attention so that she would not miss any key details.
Jensen could not help but shake his head. The only thing he could do to help was to serve her a few dishes.
“You b*stard! What is with you today? We’ve already agreed to go on vacation tomorrow, why are you pulling out now? Why?! Can’t bring yourself to see that wench go down?”
“You’re mad. Do you know what you are talking about?”
“Hah! Christopher Case! You better not brush this off. Tell me honestly. Do you feel bad for that wench?”
“No. How many times do I have to explain to you? If I really felt bad for her, I would’ve exposed the both of you today. Why would I keep quiet at the table?”
“Then why aren’t you joining us tomorrow? We’ve already talked about this before.”
“I’m just busy. Something came up at the office.”
“Hmph! It better be.”
“Enough! Why are you folks still arguing? It’s better for us to sit down and go through tomorrow’s plan. As for the details, I’ve already talked to Anthony about it.”
Suddenly, Kisa stopped eating.
“They actually teamed up with Anthony.‘
With an addition of Anthony to the plan, Kisa felt nervous.
After all, Anthony is a psychopath. He is a lot scarier than the whole Case family combined.
Kisa frowned and stared at the tapping device. She was focused on the conversation.
