Chapter 83 Don’t Leave Me “Hey, Ariella!”
Just as she said that, Gilbert snatched away her phone.
Kisa scowled at him angrily. He was not in a hurry to talk on the phone. Instead, he waited patiently for Ariella to finish ranting on the other side.
Gilbert only spoke when she finished ranting. “I’m Gilbert Kooper. We suspect your assistant used GK Pictures’s reputation for a publicity stunt. We are in the midst of interrogation, but don’t worry. I’ll arrange for a temporary assistant as a substitute.”
Ariella was shocked. She was silent for a while before she replied again with a polite voice, “A alright Mr. Kooper. I didn’t expect you to pick up the phone. I-I was…” Gilbert hung up impatiently.
After hanging up, Kisa said angrily, “What are you doing? You restricting my movements is bad enough, but now you’re interfering with my work as well. Who do you think you are, trying to control my life?”
“I am Gilbert Kooper, your husband.” “Heh. My husband?” Kisa found those words very ironic. While they were staring at each other, Kisa’s phone rang once again. Gilbert glanced at the screen, and his face twisted into a sour expression. Initially, Kisa thought it was Ariella calling again which annoyed Gilbert. But as she took a closer look at the phone, she realized it was Howard. “Give me back my phone.”
She leaned forward to grab her phone back. But Gilbert avoided her and scoffed, “Why are you in such a hurry to answer? Just because it’s your pretty boy?”
“What if I said yes? If you can’t bear to hear any of this, then leave!”
Gilbert let out a laugh and declined the call.
“Let me warn you. While you’re still in this country, you’d better know your place. GK Picture’s reputation is not something for you to mess with. Before the truth behind this news is revealed, your phone will be confiscated.”
“Grr…” Kisa gritted her teeth in anger.
At that point, she threw the bowl aside and left. However, when she reached the door, she was reminded of Davian’s words.
‘Mrs. Kooper, since you’ve made this promise, make sure you keep it. I have eyes all around the house. If you fail to perform as promised, don’t blame me for not helping you on this matter or anything else from now on.’
She tightened hier land and stood in front of the door for a while. It was then that she
managed to suppress her anger.
‘Forget it!’ she thought to herself. She had yet to find out the truth behind what happened five years back. She still needed Davian’s help for certain things. She turned around and looked Gilbert right in the eyes.
He chuckled, “What? Are you sad about your phone, or sad that you’ll keep your pretty boy waiting?” Kisa kept silent and walked over to clean up the mess she had just made. Gilbert frowned as he watched her. He could not believe she would lower herself down and be nice.
After a few moments, he broke the silence, “I don’t know what tricks you’re trying to play this time.” The, he tucked himself in bed to sleep. Kisa scoffed. “No matter what I do for him, he’ll only think that I’m scheming something,’ she thought to herself. As night came, she fell asleep on the sofa. Suddenly, she was woken up by the sound of babbling. She got up in a blur and stared blankly for a moment. Then, she went to switch on the wall lamp.in the dark. It seemed like Gilbert was having a nightmare. His brows were furrowed tightly, and his forehead was claminy with cold sweat.
He was shaking his head frantically and kept mumbling, “Why does it have to be you? Why?” Kisa did not know what to do, seeing his painful expression. She attempted to wake him up by calling his name a few times, but he was still deep in his nightmare. ‘Forget it,’ she thought. ‘He’ll wake up on his own in a while. Kisa decided to not bother him anymore and turned back. Just as she was about to walk toward the sofa, she felt a tight grip on her wrist. “Don’t leave me. Don’t…” Kisa was shocked, staring at Gilbert who was still lying in bed. It was not because of what he had said, but because of how warm his hands were.
