Chapter 255 An Instrument to Protect Gilbert
Jensen leaned back on the chair. “Grandma, I promise you I won’t talk about being sent abroad. back then in front of Gilbert,” he said with a smile at Madalyn. “But please stay out of the affair between Kisa and me.”
Madalyn’s face fell immediately. “Are you saying that you have to be together with that woman?”
Jensen has silenced again.
Madalyn was furious. She stood up and pointed at him, “Fine, fine! You’re independent now. You don’t even listen to me. I can’t influence you, but I won’t forgive you if I find you conspiring against Gilbert together with that woman.” Madalyn left angrily after she finished.
Jensen stared at the door. He laughed at himself.
‘It’s true Gilbert is always the only grandson in her mind, and I’m nothing!‘
His mind flashed back to the memories of his childhood.
He remembered his grandma asking him, “Jensen, Gilbert is my life. Can you protect him for me after you grow up?”
In another memory, Jensen remembered his grandma asking him, “Jensen, do you think Gilbert and Kisa are compatible?”
“I want to let Kisa get married to Gilbert. Kisa is lovely and sensible. I’m very sure she’ll take good care of Gilbert. What do you think?”
“Well, they’re… compatible.”
In another memory, Jensen remembered saying, “Gilbert, I won the science and technology contest I participated in last time. There’s a generous bonus. What do you want? I’ll buy it for you.”
“Keep it for yourself.”
“How about I establish a company, and both of us help and support each other?”
Again, his mind flashed back to when she found out he had started his own company.
“Humph! You started a media company behind our backs at such a young age. Why? Are you planning to compete against Gilbert’s GK Pictures in the future?”
“No! Grandma, I’m not,” Jensen said.
“Stop denying it! Your dad started a media company behind our backs and attempted to fight against us too back then. I know you’re smart and talented, but you shouldn’t use your abilities like this. I guess I’ll need to send you away.”
“Grandma, no! I love this place. I want to be together with Gilbert. I swear I won’t go against
Gilbert for my entire life. Please don’t send me away.”
‘It was raining heavily that day, but grandma still sent me away resolutely. She left me in a foreign country to die.‘
‘Ha–ha… Gilbert is always her only grandson in her mind. Everything she did or said was a plan for Gilbert. And what am I? Nothing! Sigh, how cruel is she?‘
‘I thought she was so kind when I first saw her that year. She hugged me and got me in bed when I was sick that winter. At one point, I felt blissful. I was the same as Gilbert. We were her beloved grandsons. I felt like there was still someone in this world who would love me.”
‘But now it seems like my thoughts in those days were ridiculous. How ironic it was when she was being slightly nice to me.‘
‘I’m just a puppet, an instrument raised by her. An instrument to protect Gilbert.‘
Jensen’s mind was filled with desolation, self–deprecation, and defiance. He held the glass. hard. With a sudden crack, he smashed the glass to the table fiercely.
At that moment, Kisa was walking toward his door, wondering why it was still open at this late hour. Suddenly, she heard the sound of broken glass coming from Jensen’s house, and she was shocked.
