“Karen, there’s no need…. Jayden tried his best to put on a bright smile. “This is good enough.”
He wanted to die for her so that significant mark in her life.
That was good enough for him!
Jayden decided that he should sacrifice himself for her. This was what Nathaniel had done many years ago, and Jayden wanted Karen Joy to know that he could do the same for her too.
That year, Nathaniel almost lost his life for her. The incident had been imprinted in her mind for more than a decade.
This time, Jayden also wanted to be selfish. He decided to use his death to make Karen Joy remember him in such a cruel way.
Even if he had to die young, this would make her remember him forever, and that was enough for him.
He felt that it was worth it. In all of his years doing business, perhaps this was the most profitable deal he had made.
Karen Joy burst into tears, “Shut up! Don’t speak nonsense. I don’t want anything to happen to you. If anything happens to you, I won’t forgive you for the rest of my life. Hold on. I’ll carry you away right now.”
“Karen..” Jayden wanted to ask her not to cry, but he didn’t have the strength to do so.
He didn’t want to see her cry. He did not wish to see her tears. All he wanted was to see her smile. He loved her!
Jayden thought of taking her by force and claiming her as his own, but her brilliant smile assured him that he loved her bright smile the most.
Karen Joy loved to smile. When she smiled, she stood out in the crowd.
Jayden enjoyed it when Karen Joy was the centre of
attention. She was the jewel of a crown!
If he forced Karen Joy to stay with him, he would never get to see her smile again, a smile that glowed from within her. And that was not what he wanted to see.
Jayden couldn’t tie her down by his side, but he could make her remember him.
He wanted to use this cruel way to make Karen Joy
remember him forever! “I’ll carry you!” Karen Joy wanted to take him to the hospital
to save him. She couldn’t let anything happen to him.
“Karen..” Jayden still wanted to say something, but from the corners of his eyes, he caught a glimpse of a person getting up from the ground. Jayden was so alarmed that his eyes widened. “Karen, watch out..”
The person who had stood up was none other than Solomon Cooper, whom Jayden had knocked out earlier.
Solomon stood up again, holding the pistol he had shot Jayden with Jayden wanted to get up and beat Solomon down again, but he no longer had the strength to move. All he could do was
to move his lips to warn Karen Joy of the imminent danger,
asking her to watch out.
Solomon was the son of a President, and he was a potential candidate to be the next President. But later, he was forced to relinquish his position because of Nathaniel. He was even
exiled after the entire fiasco and had no proper residence to seek refuge.
Suddenly, he changed from being the successor of the President to something close to a homeless beggar. Solomon couldn’t endure such a significant shift in lifestyle, so he had been planning to return and get rid of Nathaniel.
Solomon had been waiting for a few years to get the chance. Hence, he could not allow Jayden and Karen Joy from the Kyle family to ruin his elaborate plan.
Solomon raised his gun and laughed crazily. “How dare you spoil my plans, go to hell!” When Karen Joy heard Jayden’s warning, she turned back
and saw that Solomon was aiming his gun at her head.
She was too careless and focused on Jayden’s injury. She didn’t expect that this person could get up.
It was a gunshot
The sound of the gun made Karen Joy tremble for a
moment, but she subconsciously held Jayden tight. However, after the gunshot, Karen Joy did not feel any pain, as if the gunshot was just an illusion.
Karen Joy looked up slightly and saw that blood flowed out between Solomon’s eyebrows. His eyes widened, and he fell to the ground lifelessly
After Solomon fell, Karen Joy looked around carefully. Thus, she saw that there was a person who stood behind Solomon
It was a tall, strong, elegant, and good-looking man. The light was behind him. Karen Joy couldn’t see his face
clearly, but as he stood there and as she looked at the way he walked, she already knew who he was.
Who else could it be other than her Brother Lionel?
She was waiting for him. She had been waiting for him for a long time, as if she had waited for millions of years. Finally,
he was here.
Like many years ago, he came to her just in time and pulled
her out of the dark vortex.
He was her Brother Lionel!
He strode to her side, held her in his arms, and hugged her tightly, “Karen…”
He called her name, but his voice was very hoarse, as if his
throat had been polished by sandpaper.
“Brother Lionel, save my brother! Save my brother!” When Karen Joy saw Nathaniel, it was as if she had seen her savior. She cried more unscrupulously.
“Yes!” Nathaniel wanted to hold her tightly and kiss her hard. He wanted to console and comfort her, but there were more
pressing matters at hand.
Jayden, who was lying on the ground, slowly closed his eyes, and tears flowed down from the corners of his eyes.
He wanted Karen Joy to accompany him until the last moment of his life alone, but that damned Nathaniel had arrived in time.
Nathaniel was like an obstacle that Jayden could never get
rid of. He was like a speeding train that Jayden could never
surpass. Nathaniel’s mere existence was infuriating to
Jayden Perhaps it was fate, that Nathaniel would exist in this world, and that he would cross paths with the Kyle family, and right
after that, the universe would deliver Jayden into the arms of the Kyle family too.
Jayden did not know what happened after that, as his brain had lost consciousness,
At the People’s Hospital of Country A.
One hour passed, two hours passed, three hours passed…
Twelve hours passed…
The indicator light at the door of the emergency ward was still blinking red, and the doctor was still operating in the operating room Outside the emergency ward, two figures were waiting, but
neither of them spoke a single word. The atmosphere was
so silent that it was frightening.
Karen Joy curled up in the corner and did not eat, drink, nor talk. She even ignored her Brother Lionel, who was talking to her.
Time passed, and Jayden’s condition in the operating room was still uncertain. She couldn’t do anything but just to wait patiently. It was the worst kind of feeling.
“Karen..” Nathaniel wanted to comfort her, but he didn’t know what to say
They were all silently waiting. They were hoping that the surgery would go smoothly, hoping that Jayden would be fine, hoping that Jayden would get better.
Deep down, they knew that the longer the surgery was, the lower the chance was for Jayden’s survival. “Karen..” Nathaniel pulled Karen Joy into his arms, but he
didn’t say anything else.
At this time, words did not matter. A warm hug was more
powerful than anything he could say.
“Director… Director Kevin.. you’re here!” Blake White’s trembling voice suddenly came from the
outside of the corridor. Karen Joy and Nathaniel turned around at the same time and saw Kevin Kyle and several doctors in white coats
walking toward them, striding elegantly.
“Dad?” Karen Joy couldn’t believe what she saw. How could her father come so soon?
“Yes,” Kevin nodded slightly and turned to the doctor. “Please go and take note of the situation there. No matter how critical the situation is, you must save him. I want him alive.”
