Chapter 68 I Don’t Need Your Sympathy.
It was Andrew.
“Ma’am, you’re finally back.” Andrew ran in excitedly and hugged her leg. He furrowed his little brows when he saw the bottle of medication in her hand. “Are you sick?”
Kisa stroked his head. “It’s fine. Just a minor one.”
Andrew shook his head, extraordinarily anxious. “George always says that a minor illness can grow into a big one. I have got to tell Daddy.” He ran out at once, so quickly that Kisa could not stop him.
She forced a smile, knowing that even if he told Gilbert about her condition, it would not make a difference. He would just think she was pretending, trying to earn sympathy. Andrew had just left when Kelvin came in. He had his arms around his chest, and his tone was stern. “Why didn’t you just be a little more ruthless and kill Gilbert?”
She snickered as she knew he was accusing her of stabbing Gilbert. “Had I killed him, you guys would still have cut me to pieces.” She then ignored him and swallowed the pills in her hand.
Kelvin glanced at the pill bottle in her hand and said in a light-hearted manner, “Those painkillers are only aggravating your condition. If you really want to live, ask for Gilbert’s forgiveness. If he forgives you, I will cure you immediately.” “I really don’t need your sympathy.” Kisa felt terrible now that she did not want to talk to anyone but just get a good night’s sleep.
Kelvin looked at her indifferent face and sneered. “You are really stubborn. I wonder if you will still be as stubborn when you take your last breath.”
Kisa just wanted to laugh at his words. Am I really the one who is stubborn? Who wouldn’t want to live a good life? But Gilbert simply wouldn’t give me that chance. I have just heard outside the door that even if Gilbert really knows I’m dying, he won’t let Kelvin treat me. So why should I grovel and beg for his sympathy?’
As she was thinking so, Gilbert barged in. He was in a rage. He did not even care about the wound in his chest as he yelled at her, “You really have no shame, have you? I knew you were pretending to be sick in front of me, but never had I expected that you would do that in front of Andrew. He has just gotten better; why do you have to make him worry about you? So you think that if you tell me through his mouth, I will really believe that you are sick? Let me tell you; even if you pull the same trick a thousand times, I will still not believe it. Instead, you will only make me sick.”
Kelvin opened his mouth and was about to say something when Kisa sneered. “So what if I let him worry about me? He is your child with another woman. If my child was still alive, he would be worried about me, too. Andrew is just doing what he should do instead of my child.”
“You -“Gilbert raised his hand in anger. Kisa stared him in the face. Her body was in pain, but she did not show it. At last, Gilbert came down with his hand, but it just knocked the medication bottle out of her hand instead of slapping her in the face. “Since you are so fond of pretending to be sick, then I wish you the best of luck and get very sick soon.” With that, he left in anger.
Kelvin stared in shock at the pills scattered in the corner and said nothing. Kisa looked at him and chuckled, “Do you think I still need to beg for his forgiveness?”
Kelvin still said nothing, just shaking his head and heading outside. Just then, Kisa suddenly called out to him.
