Chapter 86 The First Time She Let Her Guard Down This was the first time Kisa let her guard down. She cried like a child when she confronted Gilbert, “Why are you doing this to me? What did I do wrong? What have I ever done wrong?” But no matter how much she cried, she would never gain pity from the man in front of her. After all, she was not Sara. To him, her tears were just a tool to gain sympathy. His cold, gloomy face did not change in the slightest. Even his eyes were as cold as ice.
kisa saw the indifference on his face and knew that her tears were a joke to him. She could cry in front of anyone and everyone except Gilbert. He was stone cold when it came to Kisa. He would never fall for her tears. Suddenly, Kisa laughed. The look on her face seemed twisted, combined with the tears rolling down her cheeks, “Oh, I forgot, you never fall for my tears. I guess this little trick of mine wouldn’t work on you.”
Gilbert’s hands that were holding her slowly tightened, and Kisa could feel his rising anger.
All of a sudden, Gilbert yanked Kisa to the ground and yelled, “Get out!”
She had been looking forward to hearing those words the whole day. Despite her body aching from the fall, she got up, adjusted her collar, and walked out of there without looking back
Gilbert stared at her as she fled the scene, and he proceeded to smash everything on the bedside table in anger. ‘Why is this woman always so stubborn? I want to strangle her to death,’ he thought. Kisa ran back to her room and locked the door. She leaned against the door and started weeping
‘Why am I always in her shadow? 1 don’t owe her anything, but why am I the one who has to protect her from every disaster? Why do I have to cover for her? i’m a person too, but Gilbert never worries for me. I know he loves Sara, but why must he hurt me in the process? What did I do wrong? The more Kisa thought about it, the more she felt mistreated.
She slid her back against the door and fell to the floor. She bent her knees and curled herself into a ball, just to feel some sense of security.
It was going to be a sleepless night for Kisa. Just as she was about to fall asleep the next morning, she was awakened by a sudden knock on the door.
In a daze, she went to open the door and found that it was Davian. “Mrs. Kooper, didn’t you promise me that you would take good care of Mr. Kooper at all times? How could you not keep your word?” Davian questioned her. “He’s the one who doesn’t want my care. He told me to get out, so I did. Ask him if you don’t believe me,” she replied.
“I don’t care,” Davian said in anger. “Mr. Kooper always says ‘get out,’ but he never means it, so it is not an excuse.”
Kisa rolled her eyes and said, “Forget it, I don’t want to look after him anymore. You don’t have to help me investigate anymore, either. Our partnership is terminated.” “”That’s not possible. I’ve already looked into Howard Mullen for you,” he growled. “But you didn’t keep up your end of the bargain.”
“What’s the result of the investigation?” Kisa asked subconsciously after hearing that Davian had dug into the matter. “Promise me you’ll look after Mr. Kooper until he fully recovers, and I’ll tell you,” Davian said angrily. Kisa laughed at the sound of that. She remembered the humiliating treatment she received from Gilbert last night and thought to herself, ‘If I continue to take care of him after that, wouldn’t it be equivalent to committing suicide? Seeing that Kisa would disagree, Davian decided to play his trump card, “How about this? You look after Mr. Kooper until he gets better, and I will be your future assistant. I’ll do whatever you want if it doesn’t clash with Mr. Kooper’s orders.” “Really?” Kisa started to loosen up. “Yes,” Davian nodded. “Bring a contract next time. We’ll sign an agreement.” Davian gritted his teeth and answered, “Okay.” He would not have made such a huge sacrifice if Kelvin had not said that only this woman could help Mr. Kooper recover faster. ‘I don’t understand why Kevin is so sure that this woman is the only one who can help with Mr. Kooper’s injury,’ he thought. After the two of them came to an agreement, Kisa looked at him sternly and said, “Now, tell me the results of your investigation.”
