Episode 14

(Can't help you)

"I'm warning you. You'd better leave now. If you don't, I will call the police and make sure that you end up behind bars."

Mike pushed her away. Never in his wildest imagination did he think that Becky would do something so horrible to Joanna, a kind soul who already treated her as part of the family.

"Grandpa, grandma. I know that I made a terrible mistake. I am begging for your forgiveness," Becky pleaded. She was doing her best, but she knew that it was too late for them to forgive her. She could only hope and pray that Joanna could see her sincerity and trust her again. "Grandma, I really like Aron. As for that accident of that day... I was out of my mind. I never really meant to hurt you," she explained.

"Enough with your lies! Stop acting like an innocent lamb. Keep it in that evil brain of yours, we will never, ever trust you or want to see you ever again," Mike ignored her pleas. "Leave here now. You are no longer welcome here."

"Grandma, grandma..." Becky cried. "Please give me a chance. Please! Listen to me. I can explain everything."

"There is no need for that. You heard my grandfather." Aron said, walking towards Joanna. He even didn't give Becky a glance as he walked past her. "Don't waste your time here. If I were you, I wouldn't even have the face to come here. In case it isn't clear to you yet, the wedding is off. As for the engagement gifts... You can keep them. After all, you have taken care of my grandparents for four years. What you did was attempted murder. You tried to kill my grandmother!

But now that she has regained consciousness, we will not press charges. You are now dead to us. If you ever come near my grandparents again, I won't be as kind and I will come at you."

'Whether it was for show or not, Becky have indeed looked after my grandparents well. Even so, I can't force myself to forgive her now.' Aron thought to himself.

"Aron, I..." Becky was at a loss, as if her world had collapsed. "Grandma, please help me. I really can't live without Aron. I am nothing without him." Becky turned to Joanna.

Joanna looked away saying nothing. Desperate, Becky went down on her knees before her. Joanna was the only one who could help her change Aron's mind. Aron must marry her.

"Grandma, I am begging you. I can't lose him..." Becky wailed, planting her face in Joanna's hand. As Joanna had just come out of a coma after a long surgery, she was too weak to shake off Becky's hands.

Aron came forward and removed Becky's hands from Joanna. "What are you doing? We want you to leave now! Look around you. No one wants you here!" Aron shouted, throwing her hard to the ground.

Becky ignored him. She didn't notice the bruise on her elbow and her makeup all messed up by her tears. She only knew that she would lose Aron forever if she didn't defend herself now.

"Forgive me, Aron. Please forgive me. It was a mistake. I didn't hurt grandma on purpose," she sobbed, grasping Aron's hand. "When I went to Isla's office that day, she said many unkind words to me.

As a result, I lost my temper and pushed grandma into the wall by accident. Aron, our wedding preparations have been finalized and the invitations have been sent out. You can't cancel our wedding. I will suffer unbearable shame if you do so. Please don't abandon me. I promise that I will serve you and your grandparents very well after we get married. Just give me one more chance."

"Let go of my hand!" When you faced someone you didn't love or care about, you wouldn't pity her. It wouldn't matter whether she was a good person or a wretched person. Looking at Becky's pitiful, sad face, Aron thought of nothing but Isla's helpless expression when Becky set her up and put her on the spot.

"If you don't want to be in a more embarrassing situation, you'd better call off our wedding immediately. As sure as the sun and moon are in the sky, I will never show up at the wedding." Aron promised.

Aron was ready to drag Becky out of the ward when Joanna stopped him. "Aron, let me have a talk with her. Just a few minutes."

"Grandma..." Aron was surprised. "You don't have to..."

"It's fine," Joanna reassured him. "I have a few things that I need to say to her. You can wait by the door," she added.

"But..." Leaving Joanna alone with Becky in the ward didn't sound like a good idea. "Just let your grandma speak to her alone. We can wait outside the door," Mike broke in, pulling Aron by his hand.

'As we are going to wait outside the ward, I don't think Becky would dare hurt Joanna again,' Mike thought.

"Becky, you'd better not lay hands on my grandmother again. I will not repeat my self twice." Aron warned, staring at Becky up and down.

"Grandma, grandpa and I will stand outside the ward. Call out to us at any time," he said in a gentle voice.

"I will," Joanna nodded. When Aron and Mike left the ward, Becky stood by the bed anxiously. Looking at Joanna's kind eyes, she somehow dared not get closer to her.

"Becky, take a seat," Joanna said to her calmly. Becky hesitated. She was more afraid to approach her. When she had given Joanna a push that day, she did intend to kill her.

"Grandma, I..." Becky muttered, standing by the far end of Joanna's bed. When she saw Joanna's eyes, she lowered her head out of guilt. "Grandma, I'm sorry," she continued in a low voice.

"Come here," Joanna motioned for her to come closer. "Becky, it has been long since we had a chat like this."

Becky nodded in a yes. "We haven't spoken to each other like this since we returned from abroad. Grandma, I'm really sorry. I don't know why I did it..." she continued, perching herself on the edge of the bed.

"Well, I don't blame you," Joanna said, stroking Becky's hand. "You said that you really love Aron, and I believe it."

Hearing this, Becky couldn't help but weep. Meeting Aron was her biggest misfortune. To get Aron, she had done many evil things that included conniving, lying and hurting people around her.

None of these things could be concealed any more. "Grandma, I know that I made a horrible mistake. However, I have served you and grandpa wholeheartedly. So please speak for me and convince Aron to proceed with the wedding."

"The wedding is 100% ready. We can't cancel it now. Although I'm not of noble birth, I can't give up on this wedding to disgrace my family, " she went on with a frown.

Becky firmly believed that her sincerity could move Joanna. However, she had no idea of the complete disappointment she had caused Joanna. "Becky, for this matter... I can't help you, " Joanna said, looking at Becky.
