Season 2

Episode 63

(I believed you)

Aron asked, looking concerned, "Doctor, is my grandma all right?"

The doctor took off his mask and replied, "You must be the patient's family. The patient was in poor health, and she hit her head. She is now out of danger, but..."

When Becky heard the doctor saying that Joanna's life was out of danger, she almost collapsed to the ground. She could barely stand as she held on to the wall.

However, with what the doctor said next, she felt relieved, "But the patient might be in a coma indefinitely..."

Aron grabbed the doctor's hand and asked, "What did you say? What did you mean that she might be in a coma indefinitely? When will she wake up?"

Becky came forward, took Aron's hand and advised, "Aron, you are frightening the doctor. Let go of his hand!

"The doctor has tried his best. No matter what becomes of grandma, I'll take good care of her." Becky decided to take this opportunity to attack Isla. She continued, "Grandma has treated me so well. I won't spare that bitch- Isla."

Aron yelled at her, "Enough! Don't call her a bitch. She is your cousin. It is not certain that she's the one who did this. Don't talk rubbish here."

Becky fixed her eyes at Aron and said with a sad look, "Why are you still trying to defend her? "People at the company are the witnesses. Isla did this because she was envious of grandma's being on my side. Why do you still love this vicious woman?"

"This is a serious matter. We must investigate further..." Aron believed that this wasn't Isla's doing because he knew her very well.

Before Aron could finish his words, Mike's grave voice came from the end of the corridor. "There is no need for further investigation." He strode towards Aron and said, "The evidence is certain. What other proof do you need? Will you believe in it when your grandma never wakes up again?"

"Grandpa, you misunderstood. This is not what you think..." Aron continued to explain with a frown, "Isla..."

"That's enough!" Mike thundered with a serious look, "I don't care what's going on between you and that woman. I don't want to see her face again. Besides... I won't forgive her for what she has done to your grandma."

"Grandpa, don't get angry." Becky came forward and held Mike's hand. She said, "Grandma is in bed now. You should take care of yourself. If anything happens to you..."

"Becky, don't worry. As long as I am alive, he can marry no one but you." Just this morning, Mike had decided to let Aron choose his wife on his own. But now things had changed. If Aron intended to wed Isla, he wouldn't give his consent.

"Grandpa, grandma is still in a coma... I only want to look after grandma well. At present... I have no other intentions," Becky responded. Mike was satisfied and calmed down after hearing Becky's words.

Aron watched Becky escort Mike to Joanna's ward. Instead of following them, he gave a call to a doctor he knew abroad and asked him to come and check on his grandma. Then, he went to the police station to bail Isla out.

The procedures were done quickly. Aron stood at the gate of the police station, waiting for Isla. She was terrified as she was detained. When she walked out of the police station, she saw Aron and she couldn't hold back her tears.

Aron walked up to her and tightly held her to his chest. He comforted her, "My little girl, why are you crying? Don't be afraid anymore. I will help you get through this."

He took Isla by her hand and said, "I will drive you to your house."

When he was about to go to his car, Isla said in a low voice, "Aron... How is your grandma?"

"She is out of danger now." Aron observed that Isla was very much relieved. She continued, "When will she wake up?"

'When she wakes up, she can prove my innocence,' thought Isla to herself.

"She..." Aron replied with a frown, "She might be in a coma forever. The doctor said that she would likely be a vegetable for the rest of her life."

"Wh... What?" she asked in shock. 'If Joanna doesn't wake up, who could prove that I am innocent?' she wondered, slightly panicked.

Aron comforted her, as if he heard her thoughts. "Don't worry about it. I will prove that you are innocent."

Isla laughed bitterly. 'It's not fair. God is always on Becky's side. He helped her four years ago, and so he does now.' She asked Aron with a sad expression, "Aron, do you really believe that I have nothing to do with your grandma's accident?

Perhaps... perhaps the truth is as Becky said. I hurt Joanna because I got angry for her cursing words."

"You won't." Aron said resolutely, "Isla, I believe that you're not that kind of person. Give me some time and I will prove that you are innocent."

Isla cried harder. 'If I had believed Aron four years ago, Joanna wouldn't have gotten hurt like this,' she blamed herself.

"You may have a hard time in the following days." Aron said, "But I promise that it won't last long."

Isla didn't sleep well in the next few days. Every time she closed her eyes, the scene where Joanna was lying in her own blood crept into her mind.

She had lost much weight in those few days. When she walked into the company, all the people around her whispered to one another. Little noise would cause her panic.

Then Autumn came back to the company. When they saw Autumn, they shut up immediately. No one dared to speak ill of Isla in front of Autumn.

However, Autumn felt something was wrong. She pushed Isla's office door open, but didn't find anything suspicious for the office had been cleaned up.

"Isla, what happened?" Autumn's grandma had gotten better, so she returned to the company. But she was shocked at the sight of Isla. They hadn't seen each other for three days, but Isla had lost so much weight, she looked freaky.

Autumn asked in surprise, "Isla, what happened?"

Isla raised her head, forced herself to give a smile and responded, "Autumn, you're back."

"What's the matter with you? Why do you look so troubled?" Autumn continued, "Has anything gone wrong while I was away?"

"I'm fine. I just haven't been sleeping well." Isla proceeded with a bitter smile, "I have gathered all the files. Autumn, I want to ask for two days off. You..."

"Go home and get enough sleep!"

Autumn was afraid that Isla couldn't handle her work, so she approved of her leave request. When she left, Autumn called Paula to her office.
