Chapter 55 Not Interested In You
“Trying the same old trick of climbing into my bed again?
The voice that came abruptly startled Kisa, who almost dropped her phone on the floor. She panicked and looked toward the sound and found a flickering spot of fire at the window. Gilbert was not sleeping but smoking in the darkness of the night. Since he was not sleeping, Kisa went straight to turn on the light. As the light came on,
she saw his cold and despicable handsome face.
He looked like he had God’s favor; he not only was rich and powerful but also had a face that made women jealous. It was a pity that his unfeeling expression ruined the good-looking face.
Gilbert exhaled a smoke ring and chuckled. “You are really desperate for Howard, eh? Unfortunately, even if you stand in front of me naked, I will not feel a thing. So, save your breath.” He had just calmed his anger down earlier, and now this woman came in to piss him off again. Kisa ignored his cynicism and asked calmly, “Do you have an extra quilt?”
Gilbert was slightly startled, seemingly not expecting her to come in and ask for a quilt. He took an annoying drag on his cigarette and grunted. “No. Get out.”
Kisa pursed her lips and walked toward the door obediently. Gilbert stared at her from behind. Seeing her bony back and bare feet irritated him even more. He put out his cigarette and said, “Come back.”
Kisa subconsciously stopped and frowned at him. “What
“Go to bed.”
His cold, command – like words startled Kisa. She looked at him with her eyes widened.
Seeing Kisa standing still with a surprised look, he sneered. “Don’t worry. I said I’m not interested in you, so I won’t touch you.” While speaking, he strode out of the room.
As he walked past her, she subconsciously grabbed his arm, only to let go when she met his cold eyes. She hesitantly asked, “Where are you going to sleep if you give up the bed for me?”
Gilbert sneered at her again. “Do you think I can still sleep with you here to disturb me?”
Kisa dropped her eyes and her voice involuntarily. “Don’t worry. I will leave tomorrow. As for Howard’s role-“.
Gilbert was so pissed that he took a deep breath, spun around, and left. He was afraid he could not resist the urge to strangle her if he stayed one more second.
After Gilbert went out, Kisa quietly glanced into the living room from the doorway and found the man sitting by the window smoking as if something was bothering him. She shrank back and closed the door behind her, then lay down on the bed.
It was definitely warmer under the covers than on the couch. She did not know why Gilbert was so kind as to give up the bed for her, but since he was not sleeping, she would not waste it.
Kisa slept until noon the next day. The room was silent. She remained in a daze for a long while before she realized where she was and scrambled up to look for Gilbert. But there was no sign of the man in the entire suite. She went to the window again and looked carefully. The thugs around the hotel last night seemed to have left. Perhaps Anthony had been convinced that she was not with Gilbert.
Thinking that Ariella had to attend a brand event at 4pm, she simply washed up before getting ready to go out. This brand event was organized by The Mullen Group. It was a public event, so Anthony would not dare to do anything, even if he saw her..
She paced to the door and cautiously glanced through the peephole to make sure no one was outside the door, and then opened it a little.
But as she poked her head out, she was shocked.
