Anyone observing them would surely think, the three people are having a friendly and emotional conversation as they all reunited after four months but they had no idea of the actual truth.
Lee Aera, was trying to control the tears that were forming near her eyes.
The man she had always been in love with was almost going to be hers but again her elder sister, who already snatched away the love of her life from her once, rose from death and again snatched him away.
If it wouldn't have been illegal, Lee Aera would have happily stabbed her elder sister over and over a thousand times, eliminating her presence from this world.
"Kiaraa" Old man Lee finally found his voice, as he just recovered from the shock of looking at his allegedly dead granddaughter standing in front of him.
There wasn't even a scratch on her body.
He wondered if he was dreaming or his granddaughter, his pride, was actually standing in front of him.
"Grandpa" Kiaraa emotionally stepped towards her grandpa, and tightly hugged him.
Only after hugging his granddaughter, old man Lee accepted that this was not a dream and his Kiaraa was indeed alive.
Tears started flowing from his eyes, as he trembled emotionally, hugging his granddaughter, "Kiaraa, are you really alive dear? Are you?" The old man questioned her between his sobs.
"I am indeed alive, grandpa" Kiaraa assured her grandpa, she was relieved that her grandpa was finally talking to her.
Nine months ago, he disowned Kiaraa and never talked to her until today.
Therefore, Kiaraa was glad, as everything was going according to her plan.
"Kiaraa, my baby" A woman softly called her name from behind.
Kiaraa shut her eyes to hide her disgust.
But she had no choice, she had to dig deeper and delve into the depths of her parents' murder and wished to know, who tried to kill her too.
Kiaraa broke the hug and looked at her aunt, Lee Min Seo, her dad's younger sister and the second born of grandpa Lee.
"Aunt Minya" Kiaraa intentionally called her so intimately and tightly hugged her aunt.
Everyone got emotional seeing the bond between the aunt and the niece but they had no idea, Kiaraa was ruthlessly pressing on her aunt's shoulders, hurting Lee Min Seo.
Her aunt is suffering from shoulder impingement. If anyone presses on her shoulder, it causes her immense pain.
"Ahhhh" Lee Min Seo, loudly shouted in pain and pushed Kiaraa away.
Kiaraa lost her balance due to Min Seo's aggressive push but before she could fall back, a firm hand was wrapped around her waist in support, not letting her fall down.
"Are you alright?" The man who had been stony and cold until now, finally showed some different reaction.
Aera was even more pissed when she saw the worried expression painted all over Song Ji Hun's face. She would have jumped in joy, if he would have showed even a tiny bit of care towards her.
But he was always cold and arrogant towards her.
Kiaraa on the other hand, wanted to remove his hand from her waist but she didn't forget the act she had to put up in front of their families.
"I am fine, thank you" She sweetly smiled at Song Ji Hun and politely stepped away from him.
Looking at her aunt, Kiaraa questioned her, "Aunt Minya, are you not happy to see me here?" Kiaraa acted as if she was the one who got wronged by her aunt.
"Kiaraa, you hugged me tightly and it hurt my shoulder, so…" Lee Min Seo started explaining herself as she was scared of her father, but ultimately what she feared, happened.
"Min Seo, can't you bear with your pain for a second? Kiaraa is meeting all of us after a long time. We are not even sure, where she was and how she was during the last four months. How could you be so absurd to push Kiaraa away?" old man Lee, scolded his daughter in front of all the guests, making her lose her face.
'This Kiaraa, why the hell is she back? How the hell did she survive that accident?' Lee Min Seo furiously thought to herself but she had to be nice to Kiaraa to keep her father happy.
"I am really sorry dear, please forgive your aunt" Lee Min Seo begged Kiaraa, who smirked in victory, "I can never be upset with you, aunt Minya." Kiaraa assured her.
But Min Seo, saw the snobby smile on Kiaraa's face when she begged for her forgiveness, this angered her even more.
Min Seo missed those days when old man Lee, disowned his favourite granddaughter and didn't talk to her until today.
