Let her out, Mom. She’s injured, so she can’t go anywhere anyway.” Vito grew anxious just thinking about how Christina had sobbed last night.
Do you really think I’m that heartless of a person? I’m only locking her up for your sake! If you like her and want her to be your wife, then we have no choice but to keep her locked up.” Miriam explained.
vito was still single despite being thirty years old. Most of the men on the island had already become Fathers in their twenties, so Miriam was worried about his love life.
As there weren’t many suitable women on the island, he couldn’t get himself a girlfriend until Christina showed up.
Vito was about to say something, but Miriam had made up her mind. “We will keep her locked up for one more day and discuss this tomorrow.”
I need to break Christina down before making her Vito’s wife!
With that in mind, Miriam proceeded to prepare breakfast and made Christina something to eat.
She then opened the door and let Vito bring her the food,
Christina turned around to look at them in response. Before she could even say a word, however, Miriam urged Vito to put the food down and leave the room so she could lock the door.
Oh, well… I had expected her to keep me locked in here for a little while longer anyway. In fact, it would be strange if she let me out so soon.
Christina remained in the room after having breakfast and waited for Miriam to collect the tableware.
When Miriam finally showed up, Christina told her what she had been thinking about all night. “I’ve thought things through, Ms. Landry. Vito is a decent man, so I am willing to marry him.”
“Really?” Miriam found it a little hard to believe. She had assumed it would take at least three days for Christina to break.
Christina nodded. “As you know, my family had forced me into that existing marriage of mine.”
Miriam was somewhat displeased when she heard the word “force.”
Noticing the change in Miriam’s expression, Christina quickly added. “But Vito is different. He saved my life, and he is a capable man. I am willing to marry him.”
Vito, who was standing outside at the time, felt extremely excited when he heard that.
Miriam began to believe her when she heard the last part of Christina’s explanation.
My son is famous for being an upright and honest man, so it is only natural that Christina would fall for him! Christina even shed a few tears as she continued, “I just miss my two kids, that’s all. I’d be satished if Vito could help visit them and let me know how they’re doing.”
That’s it? You just want him to go check on your kids?” Miriam was still on guard against Christina. She feared Christina would pull some kind of trick on them and escape the island.
Christina nodded with her eyes red. “Yes, I just want him to help me check on my kids. I will marry Vito. hen he returns.”
Miriam’s heart began to waver when she saw how upset Christina looked.
You’re a mother too, Ms. Landry. You should be able to understand how I’m feeling, right?” Christina pressed on. She knew that Miriam was not actually an evil person, so she decided to play the empathy card.
Being a fellow mother, Miriam could indeed understand Christina’s feelings.
She liked Christina because of her good looks and kind heart, so she wanted Christina to bear Vito’s children.
Unable to hold himself back any longer, Vito stepped into the room and said, “All right, then. I’ll pay your ids a visit.”
Since Vito had made Christina a promise, Miriam didn’t want to make him look bad by stopping him.
As such, she had no choice but to give in. “Write down your message for your kids,” Miriam said and pushed Vito out of the room.
After giving it some thought, Miriam told him. “You cannot go back on your word now that you have made Christina a promise. However, don’t just recklessly march up to her house. Just have someone else pass them the note while you watch from afar.”
Since Miriam had given them the green light, things were able to proceed according to plan fairly quickly. All Christina wrote on the note was: I miss you two. May you two grow up safely and soundly.
Claiming that it was a memento for the kids, she then handed Vito the remaining earring that she had on when she fell into the ocean.
Miriam was somewhat literate, so she approved of Christina’s message when she saw that it wasn’t a message asking for them to rescue her.
The repairs for Vito’s boat were complete, so he headed over to the address that Christina had provided and searched for her house.
Vito finally made it into the city after wandering about for quite some time, only to freeze in shock when he saw the towering skyscrapers all around him.
He had assumed that Christina was from a village like their own, but she turned out to be a city dweller instead.
Vito was tempted to head back to the island, but he had promised Christina he would deliver her message, so he forced himself to go through with it anyway.
The sky had turned dark by the time he arrived at Scenic Garden Manor.
Vito paused when he saw the guardhouse and the fancy cars that passed by it.
He had no idea who he could ask to help deliver the letter.
The team leader of the security guards had been keeping an eye on Vito for quite some time. Thinking he was a thief, the security guard yelled, “Hey! What are you doing here?”
That scared Vito so much that he panicked and ran away.
Naturally, the security guards deemed his behavior suspicious and gave chase.
Vito was so caught up in the chase that he didn’t even notice the red sports car heading in his direction.
Vito fell to the ground after being hit by the car.
The security guards were so stunned that none of them dared make a move.
Anya opened the car door and jabbed a finger at Vito as she yelled angrily. “Hey! What the f*ck is your problem, huh? You got a death wish or something?”
As Anya wasn’t driving really fast, Vito did not sustain any injuries from the impact.
He then scrambled to his feet and tried to run away, but Anya blocked his path.
“You’re not getting away until you apologize!”
That was the first time Vito had encountered such a fierce woman. Still overwhelmed with fear and panic. he immediately apologized to her. “I-I’m sorry,”
Upon catching a whiff of the fishy stench on Vito’s body, Anya frowned in disgust and motioned at him to cave.
After Vito had left, however, Anya noticed through the corner of her eye a note and an earring on the ground.
Although the earring looked ordinary, she knew it was a limited edition item as each pair had its own unique number.
She was unable to snag it in time back then, but she remembered Christina owning a pair.
After picking up the stuff on the ground, she opened up the note and gasped in shock.
Wait a minute… This is Christina’s handwriting’ I can’t believe I obtained Christina’s caring and handwritten note right after I was forced to leave Scenic Garden Manor! Him… The message on this note sounds kind of old, though. It sounds as though she ran away with someone else or something Oh, I know! I ask that guy who recked of fuh about this!
With that in mind. Anya quickly got back into her car and drove after Vito.
It didn’t take her long to catch up to Vito, whose legs turned to jelly when he saw her come after hum
“Do you know Christina?” Anya asked.
“N-No, I don’t!” Vito stammered nervously.
Having been in the corporate world for so long, Anya could tell that Vito was clearly lying about not knowing Christina.
In order to get Vito to lower his guard, she said, “I’m Christina’s cousin. My name is Anya. We’re really close, but she hasn’t contacted me in a while. Do you know where she is?”
