“What about Elijah?”
“Hmm! How about I let my daughter marry him? Lena, I would have a daughter and let her marry your son, okay? Look at these eyes, they are as deep as the sea!”
“As deep as the sea?” Lena laughed, “Esther, you are hilarious, but to be honest, if my son really marries your daughter, then I will be really happy. There are not many kind people like you in this world anymore!”
“But Lena, Elijah says that Kattie is the kindest. It seems that you are right. Kattie really does like Elijah!” Esther pouted, “I am truly worried!”
But Esther smiled, “Whatever, I don't want to think about it. If Elijah betrayed me, I surely will not want him anymore!”
Although Esther said it as a joke, she still felt the pain in her heart when she said this.
She hoped that day would never come. She hoped she was just thinking too much.
It was already eight o'clock in the evening when Esther came back from Lena’s house.
Elijah didn’t come back. Esther called him, he said that he had to meet an expert who came from the United States. The expert would examine Kattie. He told Esther not to wait for him. He would not come back tonight.
Esther wanted to go to the hospital, but Elijah said that she had classes tomorrow and he was worried that her studies would be affected if she came.
So, Esther did not go.
Tonight, Esther did not sleep!
The weather was quite gloomy on Monday, when she came out from home, she didn’t put on extra clothes. She didn’t expect that it would be cold. But anyhow, she went to attend her class!
As soon as she entered the school, she realized that many people were looking at her, whispering something and their hands were holding newspapers.
She was stunned and confused. Then, she went to buy a newspaper.
She realized that the headline for today’s entertainment section was about her relationship with the Ball family, saying that she was Christ’s daughter, the marriage between the Perry family and the Ball family, would dominate the whole business industry in G City.
Esther just didn't expect that the reporter would report about her identity so soon. Entertainment reporters were really all pervasive. She was not sure whether Elijah had seen the news.
He didn’t come back all night and didn’t call her either. She wanted to call him, but she felt like she was acting too petty. After all, she was the one who hit Kattie.
She didn’t pay too much attention to the news report. She was sleepy during her class because she had insomnia last night.
Later, it suddenly began to rain outside the window. It was still raining heavily even after her class ended.
She looked at those couples under the umbrellas in the rain, and then she saw men who came to pick up their girlfriends. She was envious.
She didn’t know what happened, the driver didn’t come to pick her up. Later, the driver called her telling her that he was involved in an accident and couldn’t pick her up today. The driver got her a taxi, and the taxi would reach the school immediately.
Esther looked at the sky and stood outside the building waiting for the taxi.
