Chapter 337 Ma’am Seems to Be in a Lot of Pain
Most of the time, Gilbert refused to admit that Jensen was better than him.
However, he had to admit that Jensen was better than him this time.
‘Jensen knows how to do everything. He’s even able to bandage a wound this meticulously. Meanwhile, I can’t even cook properly. Whatever. I’m going to stop thinking about it. The more I think about it, the more awful I feel,‘ thought Gilbert.
He quietly set the spaghetti on the dining table and called the children over to eat.
Andrew went beside him and whispered, “Daddy, Ma’am seems to be in a lot of pain. She even cried just now.”
“Is that so?”
Gilbert felt even worse after hearing Andrew’s words.
‘This woman had never cried in pain in front of me. However, she never suppresses her emotions in front of Jensen. Hah… This must be the difference between the way she treats Jensen and me,‘ he thought.
Andrew did not know what was going on in her father’s head. She grabbed his father’s hand and said, “Daddy, you’ll have to coax Ma’am after Uncle Jensen leaves. That
way, she’ll surely still like you.”
Ada nodded beside her, “Andrew’s right. Daddy, you need to be like Uncle Jensen. Smile a little more gently. Then Ma’am will stop asking you to leave.”
‘Even if I learn to smile gently like Jensen, I’ll never be Jensen. She’ll also never smile nor treat me nicely and pleasantly,‘ Gilbert thought self–depreciatingly.
“It’s done,” Jensen said as he put away the medical kit. Then, he said to Kisa earnestly, “For the next few days, don’t get water on your wound. You should also be careful when you’re shooting.”
Kisa nodded and turned to Gilbert.
“What’re you still doing here? You’re done making the spaghetti. Why aren’t you leaving?” she urged.
Gilbert pursed his lips and did not respond. His expression darkened once again.
Andrew ate his spaghetti quietly as he carefully observed their expressions.
A moment later, he said to Gilbert, “Daddy, I’m thirsty. Could you please get me some water?”
Gilbert did not answer and went to get a glass of water.
However, Kisa did it before he could.
She placed the glass of water in front of Andrew before turning to Gilbert icily, “My house is small, and you’ve
seen all of it, so you really can leave now. If you’re
worried about the children, you could also take them with you.”
“Don’t be like that, Ma’am,” Ada immediately pouted while looking at Kisa with a wronged expression.
Since Kisa could not bear the wronged looks of the children, she quickly shifted her gaze onto Gilbert. Regardless, her gaze remained icy.
Gilbert’s fists by his sides were gripped tightly.
Hah. Is my presence really such an eyesore to her?‘ Gilbert thought.
“Kisa, if he wants to stay for a while, just let him stay. It’s been a while since the three of us got together.”
“He and I have no reason to be near each other,” Kisa said disdainfully,
Jensen pursed his lips and did not respond. He calmly grabbed a glass and poured himself some water.
He moved around the house so casually; it was a blatant show of intimacy between him and the woman.
Gilbert narrowed his eyes dangerously. Then, he flashed a half smile at Jensen, “Kisa and I met a woman called Mia Fallon today. She was with a child named Blake Kooper. You know them, right? Jensen?”
Jensen paused from drinking his water.
He replied indifferently, “I know them. They’re very special friends of mine.”
“Friends?” Gilbert chuckled. “Just friends, really?”
