Chapter 260 Three People
Madalyn suddenly covered her face and spoke with remorse,” I can’t believe Kisa would have such deeply hidden intentions. If I’d known she was so wicked, or known what her mother did. back then, I wouldn’t have let you or your brother near her in any way. It’s my fault things are like this. Gilbert, promise Grandma that you won’t have anything to do with her anymore, okay? If she wants to seduce Jensen, let her. Jensen can be with her, but you cannot. You must not!”
“Why? Why can’t I be with her?” He questioned.
“Don’t ask why. As long as you’re not in love with her, I can pass on in peace.”
Seeing Mrs. Kooper Sr.’s despaired and aged expression, Gilbert’s heart ached. He took a deep breath and solemnly said, ” Alright, I won’t be seduced by her. A woman like that doesn’t deserve how well I’ve treated her.” 2
“That’s great. Now I can rest assured.”
Walking back to the study, Gilbert flipped through his childhood pictures. He’d never liked smiling for pictures, so his serious face that made the pictures look especially solemn.
But that was not the case for Jensen and Kisa. Jensen would always have a kind and gentle smile on his lips, while Kisa would also always smile brightly.
A picture with three people.
No matter how he looked at it, Jensen and Kisa matched each other like lovers, while he looked like the third wheel that was out of place. The more he stared at the picture, the more it hurt
Frustrated, he crumpled it up into a ball and threw it into the trash bin, but after a while he could not help but take it out again. He put it on the table and carefully spread it out.
Even though the photo was spread out, it still had many creases. The creases landed on both of their smiles, and they looked as if they were smiling sarcastically at him, “Look, you’re the stupid third–wheeler.”
Gilbert angrily slammed at the desk and then slumped back to the chair heavily. Unbridled anger and frustration furrowed his brow.
On this day, Kisa dressed regally, with light makeup on her face. She showed a completely clean and crisp persona.
She and Jensen had arrived at the airport early to welcome Kohen McCray.
Kohen had a famous reputation due to his family’s background.
The reporters, however, had arrived even earlier than them. Kohen’s recent trip to Calthon had caused quite a stir in both the corporate world and the media.
The plane arrived just on time. Just as Kohen disembarked, the reporters swarmed him. Jensen and Kisa did not even get a chance to approach him.
Kisa could not help but laugh, “For a public figure, especially particularly well–known personas, it must be really tiring. He’s supposed to get some rest after disembarking, but instead he’s being blocked by all these reporters.
Jensen jokingly replied, “It can’t be helped. That’s what happens when you’re popular.”
With the help of the guards, Jensen and Kisa managed to take Kohen to the hotel successfully in the end. It was Calthon’s best hotel, but it was also under GK Corporation.
It sounded just a bit ironic that one of their investors wanted to stay at a rival corporation’s
Kohen carried an outstanding aura all the time and could attract everyone’s gaze himself by just standing there. Just as they entered the hotel, countless people stared at him.
