Chapter 28 The Mysterious Person An icy voice of mockery came from overhead.
“You really can’t stop pretending, can you? With such superb acting skills, you should have become an actress instead of just working as an assistant. What a waste of talent.” Kisa clenched her fists, trying desperately to keep herself awake. She stood up with difficulty from his arms and beamed at him. “Yeah, it really is a waste of my talent. How about you sign me up under GK?”
He found Kisa’s pale smile glaring. He found her acting so good that it looked genuine despite knowing it was fake. Had he not already known her malevolent intention, he would have bought into her pretense.
Seeing the man’s eyes become colder and more disgusted, Kisa fought back the discomfort in her body and smirked. “That’s strange. How did you happen to be here? Could it be that you have been guarding me outside the door all night?” She knew that this man could not have guarded lier. She said so just to troll him.
Gilbert could hear hier sarcasm. “Guard you? In your dream, Kisa. I’m just afraid you will do something crazy at night because you are so vicious-minded.” Kisa sneered. “If that is the case, you really shouldn’t have let me stay here. I’m sorry for the trouble.”
Gilbert snorted and looked away as if he was tired of looking at her. Neither did Kisa want to dwell on it, so she sidled away and prepared to leave. But Gilbert suddenly tugged at her. “Where do you think you’re going?” It was obviously a questioning tone. Kisa jerked her arm back hard and sneered. “Do you even want to control me when I go to work?”
“Of course not.” Gilbert snickered and leaned against the wall with his hands digging into his pockets. “It is just that, since you are here to take care of Andrew, you should be fully committed to taking care of him. Don’t bother with your assistant job.”
“What right do you have to do that?”
Kisa was not too happy; she was indignant. She knew this boy he had with that woman was precious to him, but she would quit her job just to take care of their son, not to mention it sounded ridiculous.
“Just because you made Andrew sick.” Gilbert snorted. “If you are worried about that contract, fine. I will give you a hundred million dollars, and you pay that to Ariella and resign.”
It did not surprise Kisa that he could find out about that contract. But she declined. “That won’t be necessary.”
“Don’t worry. I will take good care of Andrew. My job as an assistant has become so busy because you have suddenly made Ariella the second female lead, and I have become her body double. I will definitely thank you for it if I become popular because of this exposure one day.”
Kisa said that with the utmost sarcasm. Gilbert stared at her and suddenly felt that Kisa had really changed a lot. She had never spoken to him in such a sarcastic manner in the past. Instead, she had always been pleasing him. And now, he was not used to her sarcastic and distant attitude. He was even a little annoyed.
Just then, his cell phone rang; it was Davian calling.
“Mr. Kooper, I have found out who Ariella’s boss is. Her name is Amy Robinson. She was once an actress with a little fame. She set up a studio and signed Ariella up. But when I mentioned the contract, she had just a smattering of knowledge of it.”
Davian continued. “Amy Robinson only said that it was her backer who asked Ariella to sign the contract, and she didn’t know the content of the contract. We followed the lead and found her backer, who also turned out to know nothing about the contract and only said that a mysterious person had given him the contract. No one has ever seen the mysterious person, and we have no way to find out.”
Now Gilbert frowned even harder.
“Mr. Kooper, who do you think the mysterious person is? Why would he want Mrs. Kooper to be tied up with Ariella? Could he be related to Ariella? Should we look into it from that aspect?” “That won’t be necessary.” Gilbert stared sullenly at Kisa. He wondered, ‘What could the mystery person have to do with Ariella? If there is a relationship, it must be with Kisa. After all, that contract is in Kisa’s favor in any way I look at it.
“Just that, among the people around Kisa back then, who could be so capable that even Davian could not find out the slightest information? Could it be that in the intervening five years, she has long since found favor with some big shot?’
Kisa had goosebumps all over her body from his stare. She took two steps back and said with a steady breath, “I’m going to work.” With that, she spun around to leave.
Just then, Gilbert’s icy voice came from behind her. “You have been in contact with Jensen for the past five years, haven’t you?”
