Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Nora returned after the phone call to find the atmosphere around Morris and Brenda a bit strange. However, she didn’t dwell on it too much. Instead, she said to Brenda, “Let’s go.”
Brenda followed Nora out. After they got into the car, they returned to the villa.
Justin was still using his cell phone on the sofa as he waited for them.
As for Solo, he was occupied with the gadget. After dismantling the box, he had changed its components to the best ones available and was installing them at the moment. Upon noticing the two ladies, both men turned to face them.
Solo gazed at Brenda with a scorching look in his eyes while Justin gave Nora a gentle smile.
The man was not only smiling more often these days but also becoming more and more charismatic.
Nora shifted her gaze to the upper floor and said, “I’ll go check up on Marcus’ mom.”
Upstairs, Lily and a psychologist were giving Marcus’ mom a checkup. The woman, who had already come to, screamed, “Stay away from me! Marcus, help! Save me!”
When Nora entered, Marcus’ mom looked at her in panic. “Who are you? What are you trying to do to me? Where’s my daughter-in-law? Brenda, save me!”
Nora cast her eyes down and said, “Why don’t you just drop the act?”
Marcus’ mom paused. However, a brief moment later, she continued to scream. “Marcus! Where’s Marcus?! Brenda! Help!”
Next to her, Lily said, “This is Anti, the renowned surgeon and cornerstone of the Alternative Medicine Association. Identifying medical symptoms is as easy as ABC to her. Feigning illness is pointless in front of her, Mrs. Robinson.”
Mrs. Robinson was Marcus’ mother.
Lily had avoided referring to her as Marcus’ mother as she felt that the term of address would sadden her further.
When Mrs. Robinson heard what Lily said, she quietened down at last.
Nora looked at her and said, “I know it’s difficult for you, but the ones who have already passed wouldn’t want you to torment the ones who are still alive.”
Mrs. Robinson immediately screamed, “Why?!”
Tears trickled down her cheeks as she screamed, “Why should she be allowed to marry another man when my son is dead?! My son loves her! He died trying to save her!”
However, Nora replied, “No, your son died because he was trying to catch a fugitive. Helping and protecting his teammate is part of his duty! Even if the person in danger hadn’t been Brenda, his superior, he would still be obligated to put his life on the line to save them! That’s what it means to be teammates!”
Mrs. Robinson bit her lip and kept quiet.
She lowered her head and said, “But I just can’t accept this… I just can’t…”
In the middle of the conversation, Mrs. Robinson suddenly looked up to see Brenda at the door.
At the sight of her, she immediately hung her head in guilt.
She’d thought that Brenda would be furious and upset, but unexpectedly, she entered the room and looked at her instead. However, before Brenda could speak… Thud!
Solo entered the room and got down on his knees in front of Mrs. Robinson.
Everyone in the room was stunned.
Solo said, “I’m an orphan who doesn’t have parents. If you’re alright with me, I can take care of you like your son in the future. Will you accept me?”
His eyes reddened as he added, “I will treat you just like how Marcus had! I will take care of you for the rest of your life!”
He sighed and said, “Brenda is not the main cause of Marcus’ death; I am. If you must torment someone, then please just do it to me. She didn’t do anything wrong.”
Brenda clenched her jaw, her eyes reddening.
Mrs. Robinson stared at Solo. Suddenly, she also fell to her knees and started to hit him. “You killed my son! You killed him! Why is my son dead when all of you are still alive? Sob…”
But as she continued to hit him, she suddenly put her arms around him and said, “Fine, I want you to be my son from now on! You must take care of my every need and want for the rest of your life! I am going to torment you from now on… And you!”
She looked at Brenda and said, “I want you to be my daughter-in-law and wait on me every day!”
Using the most vicious tone possible, the woman uttered the kindest words in the world.
Tears rolled down the cheeks of Brenda, who understood what she meant, again. She nodded and said, “Okay, I understand, Mom!”
Solo also echoed Brenda and said, “Okay, Mom!”
