After the words were spoken, he nodded his head and then turned straight away.
Seeing this, Hathaway’s shoulders collapsed violently, and she sat on the hospital bed with a face of pain.
Although such an outcome had been expected when she had relented against Wen Shiyu, she had not expected it to come so quickly.
In just two days, she had lost her only daughter and pushed away her most talented student.
You can imagine how hard the blow was to her.
Blanche stood by and watched the overwhelmed Head of School, not knowing how to comfort her.
In the end, she could only try to divert her attention and persuade, “Headmaster, why don’t you go and see Cathleen, it’s been so long and you haven’t gone to see her yet.”
Hathaway froze for a moment and nodded slowly, “You’re right, it’s been so long, it’s time for me to go and see Cathleen or she’ll be complaining about me again, go and check out.”
Blanche nodded and turned to go and check in.
With that, the two left the hospital and went straight to the villa where Laurine was.
Inside the villa, Kathleen’s coffin was resting in the middle of the living room, surrounded by a wreath and a number of white candles.
As soon as they entered, they saw the scene, and Hathaway’s figure swayed, devastated.
“Chief, are you all right?”
Blanche was quick to help Hathaway with a worried look on her face.
Hathaway was too distressed to speak at the moment.
She shook her head gently, pushed Blanche away and stumbled towards Kathleen’s coffin.
Only before she could take a few steps, she was called to a halt by Lauryn, who was next to her.
“Stop, I gave you permission to come in, but I didn’t give you permission to go near Cathleen.”
Lauryn stepped forward and stared hatefully at Hathaway, mockingly saying, “I can’t figure out how you have the nerve to come see Cathleen after she was killed by you?”
The words were heartbreaking.
Hathaway’s face went white, and her heart felt like it had been stabbed with a sharp knife, so painful that she couldn’t breathe.
“I didn’t get to see Kathleen when she left, let me at least see her one last time, okay?”
Her voice trembled and her eyes looked at Lauryn pleadingly.
It was the first time Lauryn had seen such a sad Hathaway and her eyes flickered.
In the end, for whatever reason, he reluctantly agreed to Hathaway’s request.
“Alright, you go over and meet Cathleen.”
At those words, Hathaway walked with eager steps towards the coffin.
Lauryn watched with cold eyes and continued, “By the way, about Cathleen’s funeral, in a couple of days, I will have a big funeral for her.”
At these words, Hathaway’s hands and feet suddenly trembled and she almost lost her footing.
Luckily, she held onto the coffin in time so that she did not fall.
When she looked up, she saw Cathleen lying in the coffin.
If she hadn’t known that Kathleen was dead, at this point she would have thought that Kathleen was just asleep.
Inside the coffin, Kathleen’s face was flushed, not at all like a dead person.
Even so, Hathaway did not suspect.
After all, Kathleen had loved beauty so much in life, and Lauryn had doted on her so much, how could she have let her go on her way with an ugly face.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry ……”
At the moment, it seemed that Hathaway didn’t know what else she could say other than those three words.
She held the coffin and sobbed uncontrollably.
Laowyn Rui looked at her like this and gave a light hum without good grace, “What’s the use of apologizing now, when your daughter needs you, you favor helping an outsider.”
As if she hadn’t heard, Hathaway trembled and reached out her hand to touch her daughter one last time.
No sooner had she done so than a sharp, nervous scolding rang in her ears from Lauryn.
“Stop it, what are you doing?”
Hathaway was startled, then her voice choked, “I just want to touch Cathleen again.”
“You might as well let her go in peace, don’t touch her, don’t let her be disturbed, and she doesn’t always want to be touched by you, don’t forget what you’ve done.”
At those words, Hathaway burst into tears.
She knew that Cathleen must have hated her when she left.
