Chapter 324 What a Callous Woman!
Gilbert stared at her, the resentment in his eyes growing stronger. Kisa did not want to argue with him about the past, as she was more concerned about the business discussion. She said to Gilbert, “I will bring Andrew and Ada back to you later.” With that, she turned around and went back to the lounge.
Gilbert watched as she went, feeling more and more that Kisa was heartless. “The kindergarten’s director said that Andrew and Ada are still waiting for you at school,” he
said in a low voice.
Kisa came to an abrupt halt, then quickly took out her phone and took a look. It was almost 7 pm. The class finished at 4 pm; that meant Andrew and Ada had waited for three hours. She looked at Gilbert. “How can that be? I obviously asked Lea to pick them up.”
“Like I have said, they just want you to pick them up.‘ Gilbert gritted his teeth in anger. “I don’t know whose nature these two kids inherited; they are so stubborn. Since you promised to pick them up from school
yesterday, they would only recognize you. Even if I go to pick them up, they are not going to go with me. They will wait until you show up. But you lied to them.”
“No, I didn’t lie to them. I just had something to do.”
“Then you go to pick them up now.”
Seeing Kisa shake her head, Gilbert exploded in anger. Aren’t the two children more important than one business deal? Besides, the deal is almost wrapped up, yet you’re still not willing to go pick them up.”
“I will go as soon as the deal is finalized,” Kisa said, turned around, and left.
Gilbert glared at her as she went. “Kisa, you are the one who is the most callous.” Watching Kisa disappear out of the hallway, Gilbert was so pissed that he slammed his fist on the wall. ‘What a callous woman!‘
Before entering the lounge, Kisa called Lea on the phone. Before she could utter a word, Lea said, “Are you done there? I was going to call you, but was afraid of disturbing your business negotiations.”
“We are almost done. How are things on your side?”
“Alas, Andrew and Ada are so stubborn, saying they wouldn’t leave until you come. I’m waiting for you at a dessert shop next to the school.”
“Okay. I’m glad to have you watching them. I will be there soon.”
Kisa was not too worried when Lea was taking care of the two children. Otherwise, she would have rushed to the school at once.
She was puzzled when Gilbert’s grim, resentful look came to her mind. He had mistakenly thought she had done a lot of bad things in the past, and it was understandable that he hated her for those bad things and resented her. But she had done nothing to the two children, so why was he so resentful of her when it came to the two children? She also understood that when he loathed her, whatever she did would anger him. She gathered herself and then pushed the door open and entered the lounge.
When she was seated, Jensen asked her in a soft voice, ‘ Gilbert didn’t give you any trouble, did he?”
Kisa subconsciously glanced at the empty seat beside her and shook her head. “No. He just told me to pick up Andrew and Ada from school.”
“Okay.” Jensen said not a word again.
That was when Gilbert came back in, too. He looked
sedate without the gloom and resentment he had just had.
