Ken bite his lips after remembering her face, his hand reached to the frame on his desk and stared at Novie's picture. It's been two years but the pain in his heart remained.

"When will you call? I am waiting here" he murmured silently.

He was in the middle of reminiscing their time together when his secretary knocked on the door.

"Come in" he spoke and the door opened, he was expecting his secretary but instead, it was his mother. A nurse was pushing her wheelchair inside.

"You can leave us," his mother said to the nurse. Ken immediately stood and seated on the single sofa opposite to his mother.

A warm and soft smile was on her lips, "Ken" she spoke slowly.

"yes mother?" he asked with his brow creased, the last time his mother spoke in this way was when they arrived in Paris, where she asked him to cut his communication with his siblings.

"I am getting old" she stated and reached for his hand, Ken immediately held her hands and stared at her.

He's been a good son to her, providing all the time and resource she needed.

His hands squeezed into fists while a line appeared between his brows.

"I am not marrying anyone." he bursts, thinking his mother must be crazy for doing this, while his mother frowned after getting yelled by him.

He walks back and forth while problem formed in his head. Then he stopped and stood in front of her and put a hand on his hips.

He exhaled and stared at her emotionless.

"Ken, do this for me please, I want to see you getting married and have a family. I want to have grandchildren. Look at the Su family, their life is so happy and lively because of the triplets. Please." she begged to him, but Ken has made up his mind, he will not stand in the altar unless the bride is Novie.

She squatted on the floor and put his hand on her knees, then he stared at her with his eyes glooming with sadness.

"Mother, I am sorry but this is that one thing I can't do" His mother nodded and looked at the sky.
