Season 4



Aron and Isla's parents left the compartment, looking quite satisfied. Meanwhile, Aron was surprised to see Autumn and Isla sitting together. "Hey, Autumn. What brings you here?" he asked.

"Hey, Aron," Autumn said, standing up. "I happened to meet Isla while I'm dining here. We just had a chat for a bit.

Are you guys heading out now?"

"Yeah," Aron answered with a smile.

"Thank you for keeping her company today. I appreciate it," he continued, noticing Isla's plump reddened eyes.

"No worries," Autumn replied.

"Bye, Isla!"

Isla nodded, smiling back at her friend. She couldn't help but feel uneasy after Autumn left. Curious as she was, she couldn't just ask Sam what had happened after she left the compartment in front of Jina and John.

"Aron, your uncle and I are going to drop by the supermarket to buy something. Take Isla to her apartment, will you?"

Jina asked, looking at Isla.

"I will, Aunt," Aron replied with a warm smile on his face.

After paying the bill, he noticed that Jina and John had already left. "There's a park nearby. Shall we take a walk?" he proposed, taking Isla by the hand.

Isla nodded her head in approval as she held Aron's hand. Bombarded by her thoughts, she decided to ask him a question.

"Did you agree to my mother's proposal?" "I did," Aron replied.

"What?! Are you out of your mind?!" she exclaimed, looking at Aron in anger.

"Why did you do that?

Don't you think it's unreasonable?"

"I don't think it's unreasonable at all," Aron replied calmly.

"Here's the thing. I've already spoken to your parents and they gave us the blessing for our marriage.

But I think there are still some problems between us that we should be able to resolve," he continued, holding Isla's hands as they sat on the bench.

"Don't get me wrong. I just feel that you don't have much faith in me.

Even your parents trust me more than you do," he hurriedly tried to explain as he captured a hint of concern flashing across Isla's face.

She just stared at Aron in return, remaining silent.

"Four years had passed. But you have always been the one that I've loved. I have no doubts about it. I will stay faithful no matter what you say or do to me. But I don't think you feel the same way. I just want to be able to talk about this so this doesn't put a strain on our relationship," he confessed, hoping that they could fix their problem.

"Autumn actually spoke to me about this," Isla said with a bitter smile.

"I don't really know why I can't fully trust you. Perhaps it's because I don't really have much confidence in myself."

"I don't understand.

Why do you say so?" Aron asked, clearly dumbfounded.

"Look at you. You're a well-established man. You have everything in life you could ask for. How can you possibly fall in love with someone like me?" Isla confessed, unable to look him straight in the eye. "I guess I've always seen myself as inferior when I'm next to you. This is why I choose to leave when Becky came into the picture."

She was more than willing to have a discussion with Aron, relieved to finally get the truth off her chest. She knew they had to talk about this sooner or later.

Otherwise, it might cause further damage to their relationship.

Aron didn't initially know how to respond, surprised to hear what Isla said. This had never crossed his mind.

After a few moments of hesitation, he decided to ask her a question. "Isla, do you know how Autumn and I got to know each other?"

"Not really," she replied.

Autumn had slightly hinted about the history of their acquaintance, but she had always been ignorant of the details.

"Yvonne is my half-sister,"

Aron revealed, discomfort painting his face.

Shocked by his admission, Isla stared blankly at Aron as she realized that it must be difficult to hear what he was going to say next.

"My mother was Simon's rightful wife. He had nothing at that time so my grandparents opposed her decision when she decided to marry Simon. But despite everything, my mother still married him," Aron paused, collecting his thoughts.

"My mother initially managed the company by herself, supporting the company on her own. Simon betrayed her by having an affair with Wendy when the company's operations got better.

This had a huge impact on my mother which led to her death soon after she gave birth. This was something that had stayed with me ever since," he explained with a sigh.

Isla felt incredibly sorry for Aron. She held his hand, not knowing how to console him.

It might have happened a long time ago, but she could sense in his tone how it had truly devastated him.

"I never got the chance to meet my mom. But my grandparents told me that she was an amazing woman. Simon immediately brought Wendy home upon her death. I had lived such a tough life from that day on. Wendy even framed me, accusing me of stealing her things.

After some time, my grandparents took me abroad. Things had been less hard for me ever since I moved," he went on. "Aron…"

Isla tried to comfort Aron, holding onto his hand.

"It's fine. It happened such a long time ago," Aron said, trying to reassure her.

"My grandparents had treated me very well. But my aunt and uncle didn't like me very much. They thought I would take away their son's inheritance. So they urged my grandparents to send me away. Fortunately, my grandparents paid them no attention.

That's why I am so grateful to my grandparents. I will never abandon them no matter what happens," he said, smiling as he continued.

"My grandpa was able to transfer his share to me when I turned eighteen. I've become the General Manager of the company ever since then. Because of that, my uncle had a fight with my grandparents. I even remember him threatening to disown them."

"What happened ever since then?"

Isla asked, concern apparent on her face as she held Aron's hands.

"Later on, I was able to bring the company great benefits. Shareholders started to speak highly of me. My aunt and uncle stopped giving me a hard time but they were still after my position.

Others may be jealous of my life but the truth is, I still think I'm not lucky as you are," Aron said, smiling as she looked at Isla.

"No matter what your parents do, they do it for your sake and they won't let others bully you. Just look at my father…"

He said, trailing off mid-sentence as he smiled bitterly to himself.
