Chapter 256 Only You
Kisa entered and saw Jensen sitting on the chair, his hand bleeding profusely. There was broken glass and blood scattered everywhere beside the table. She was deeply shocked. She quickly put her bag on the porch cabinet and found the medicine kit that he had used to bandage her wound back then.
Kisa carried the medicine kit and squatted in front of him. Looking at his bloody palm, she asked anxiously, “What happened?”
Jensen just stared at her without saying anything.
Kisa did not keep questioning him. She quickly took out the alcohol and cotton swabs. Suddenly, Jensen held her in his arms when she just wiped the blood off his palm. She was startled, “W–What happened?”
“Only you… Only you…”
Kisa did not understand what he was trying to say. She only felt him hugging her tightly, and she could hardly breathe against his strength. She stared blankly at the glass of water on the table. She could not move.
‘Someone must have come here earlier, but who was it? What did they talk about to make him. lose control of his emotions again?‘
Jensen buried his face in her neck and closed his eyes slowly. Finally, his troubled expression eased as he slowly relaxed.
‘Only Kisa. She was the only one who really treated me well back then.‘
Jensen still remembered no one saw him off when he was about to leave that year but only her. She ran up to him, holding a box of rose shortbread cookies and gasping for breath. S
“I made these rose shortbread cookies for you. They don’t look that nice, but at least taste. some before you leave.”
‘I took over the box of rose shortbread cookies with a smile. I never ate the box of cookies, even when I was living in the street and hungry in a foreign country. I treated it preciously until… it was snatched by a group of beggars.‘
As he was boarding, he saw her wave her hand hard at him and heard her shout, “Come back soon, okay?”
‘She was the only one who made me feel nostalgic for this place.‘
“What… happened to you?” Kisa asked when she felt his body was relaxed after a long time.
Jensen let her go after he calmed down. He smiled at her and said, “I’m fine.” He returned to his usual gentleness and elegance, acting as if he had merely broken the glass by accident.
Since he refused to say anything, Kisa decided not to press any further. She took over the medicine and alcohol and continued treating the injuries in his palm.
Jensen stared at her intently. Suddenly, he smiled and said, “Please make the rose shortbread cookies for me again.”
Kisa was stunned. She took a long time to respond, “Rose shortbread cookies?”
“Yes, same as the one you gave me at the airport.”
“But… Gilbert said the cookies I made tasted terrible.”
She made two boxes of rose shortbread cookies at that time. One for Jensen and one for Gilbert. She asked Gilbert how it was with high expectations. But Gilbert just said it tasted terrible with an icy tone. Then he threw the whole box of cookies into the trash.
‘I told myself never to make rose shortbread cookies again since that. I didn’t even taste the cookies until now. As Gilbert said, they must really have tasted terrible.‘
Jensen smiled at her and said, “They were delicious. Can you please make them for me again?” ‘Does Gilbert really hate me so much that he must look down on me no matter what I do?‘ The familiar aching pain resurfaced in her mind, but she quickly pushed away those negative thoughts.
She smiled at Jensen and said, “Sure, I’ll make it for you after Kohen’s party ends. Just for you.
