"At first, I also thought that her pregnancy was a result of the night we slept together in a drunken stupor... but later I realized that none of it made any sense. Somnolence and morning sickness are the most common symptoms a pregnant woman should have. However, she showed no signs of having any such symptoms. Perhaps, she had discovered that I was investigating her, so she declared her miscarriage shortly afterwards, in order to clear herself of my suspicions." Aron's grandparents had scolded him because of Becky's miscarriage. But for Aron, Becky's declaration of miscarriage had instead confirmed his speculation about her fake pregnancy.

He knew that Becky was determined on marrying him. So he presumed that if Becky did, in fact, get pregnant, she would have done everything in her powers to keep the baby, to use it as a bargaining chip to marry herself into the Gu family. It just made no sense that she had had a miscarriage so easily.

"What happened then?" Isla had also begun to grow suspicious of the whole thing after hearing Aron's words.

"I had tried very hard to uncover the truth. To get more information, I tried to contact the doctor responsible for Becky's pregnancy test, only to find that she had bought the doctor off. The doctor then skipped town. In order to gather evidence against her, I spent four years living abroad. It was not until very recently that something finally came to my attention. It so happened that there was some business to talk over back home, so I grabbed the chance and returned." He said to Isla, gently taking her hand. He had been planning to reveal all of these to her for years, and now he finally got the chance to do so, personally. "Isla, I'll admit that it was my fault for going abroad without even saying good-bye back then. But please, believe me when I say this, I have always loved you and dreamed of getting married to you. Now that we have cleared up all the confusion, will you..."

"I'm afraid it's too late now." Isla said with a forced smile, "Everyone knows that you are Becky's fiance. You two have been together for four years. Whatever has happened, it is now your responsibility to marry her. If I disregard everyone else and insist on marrying you, I will surely become a target of public criticism. I really cannot afford to lose my dignity over this again."

"So you are willing to give up on us without a fight?" Aron frowned, "I have never accepted Becky to be my girlfriend. That was all her doing."

"But your family has already accepted her, and... even my relatives back in my hometown know about your relationship." Isla had not been seeing anybody else in the past four years, and because of that, every time she went back to her hometown, she would have to face her family's criticisms. From their

work. She quickly took a bath to freshen up. At the same time, Aron had just got back home. His grandparents didn't sleep well last night, as they had stayed up all night waiting for him to come back.

"Where were you last night? How come you're just coming back home right now?" Upon seeing him, his grandmother Joanna quickly came up to him and asked, "How could you behave in such a manner? Didn't you know that Becky's family was here to talk about your wedding yesterday? How could you just disappear and put off such an important matter? We should never have spoiled you so much as a child. That way, at the very least, you may have learned some manners and know how to carry yourself in a dignified manner.

Before Aron could even say a word, his grandfather Mike turned to persuade him, "Aron, you have long reached the age of marriage. You and Becky have been together for four years, and both your grandmother and I like her very much. Please just listen to us. It's about time that you acted more responsibly and married her. Let's set up a time to meet with her family again, and get your wedding settled as soon as possible."

"Your grandpa is right. Becky is such a good girl. Although you never admitted that she is your girlfriend, she has remained ever faithful to you for all these years. She has even suffered a miscarriage because of you. Clear your conscience and shoulder the responsibility, Aron." Joanna frowned as she said, "Your grandpa and I have discussed it last night, and we think that we should get down to preparing for the wedding. The 7th of next month will be a lucky day, we want to schedule the wedding for that day if you agree. Besides, you should talk to Becky's parents soon. Make sure to ask whether there are any special customs they would like to observe. Tell them we will follow whatever customs they may request."
