Chapter 66 That’s the kind of Person I Am
“Are you okay?” The only thing Kisa managed to say was insincere words of concern. Gilbert did not respond, as if he was really asleep.
She stared at his pale face for a long time before she got up to return to her seat because sitting beside this man made her feel awkward. But just as she got to her feet, Gilbert tugged at her and stared at her.
“I remember I warned you to stay in your room and not to go out, no matter what. Why didn’t you listen?” The man’s tone was bitter and harsh, with a hefty dose of reproach.
Kisa was just about to explain when he sneered. “You wanted to get me killed, so you deliberately ran out and let Antliony catch you, right?”
Kisa could not stand to hear such a sarcastic tone from him. She had been abducted because of him, and now she had to come and please him when she had managed to escape. It really exasperated her. When she heard what he said, she just could not care less but snapped. “Yeah, right. You sent me to jail five years ago and caused me to lose the baby in my womb, so I wish you were dead.”
Gilbert narrowed his eyes and stared at her. “Then why didn’t you just kill me with the knife instead of holding Anthony hostage?” Kisa’s heart skipped a beat at his question. ‘Yeah. It was the perfect opportunity to kill him for revenge just now. Yet the funny thing is, I have no intention of taking his life from the beginning. Am I too soft-hearted, or is it because I still have slight feelings for him?’
Seeing that Kisa did not respond, Gilbert leaned closer to her. “Tell me, why did you suddenly turn against him at the last minute? Wouldn’t it be better to get rid of me?” His hot breath blowing into her face caused her heart to beat out of rhythm.
Not far away, Davian desperately gestured at Kisa, signaling her to say something nice to Gilbert. She got the message and knew that if she said something to please Gilbert, he would forgive her for stabbing him. But the hatred between them was so deep that she could not bring herself to pretend to please him. Gilbert got closer, his hawk-like eyes seemingly piercing into her. “Tell me, why didn’t you just kill me then? Did you have other plans and schemes?”
‘Other plans and schemes? Heh, he forever sees me as a scheming person.’ Kisa looked into his sharp and icy eyes and laughed. “Don’t I have to go to jail for killing you? Won’t the people under your command take revenge? I wanted to kill you through Anthony, but he was too tirnid to take your life. In that case, I had no choice but to side with you. At least for the sake of Andrew and Ada, you will do nothing to me, will you?” Davian heard what Kisa said and put his hand to his forehead, not knowing what to say. Gilbert clasped her arın so hard that he wished he could snap it. “You are really a calculating, evil woman.”
“That’s the kind of person I am. It is not the first day you know me.”
“Get the hell out of my sight,” Gilbert flung her arm away in disgust. Agitated, his chest bled again.
Davian hurriedly ran over to explain. “Mr. Kooper, actually, it has nothing to do with Mrs. Kooper this time. It was me–”
“I left the room on purpose. Why should i bear the consequences of your fight with Anthony for Sara? Why should I be Sara’s scapegoat? And why did you lock me in the room to save Sharon?” Kisa struggled to get up from the floor and looked Gilbert in the eyes. “I don’t care which woman you want to be nice to, but please leave me out of it.”
Gilbert’s chest was heaving violently, clearly on the verge of rage. Kisa continued as if she did not see the rage in his eyes. “I stabbed you, but I don’t regret it. This time, it was you who got me into trouble. If I didn’t save myself, I would have been the one who died. Can I still expect you to save me? Don’t forget how you told Anthony on the phone-”
“If you say one more word, I will have you thrown out of here.”
Gilbert interrupted her grimly, his suppressed voice filled with an obscure, murderous aura. Davian was anxious, and just as he pulled Kisa back, Gilbert swept the plates off the table with one hand and sneered. “People like you are not worth saving.”
“Is that so? That’s why I have never had any illusions about you,” Kisa said harshly.
Davian looked at the two and could only sigh silently.
It was a short three-hour flight, but the atmosphere in the cabin was so depressing that it was almost suffocating. The helicopter finally touched down, and Davian hurriedly got off. Just as he helped Gilbert and Kisa out of the helicopter, someone familiar came.
