Chapter 590 The Most Bitter Medicine
Pain reflected in Cedric’s eyes as he touched the uneven skin beneath her neck.
Originally, he had considered getting her skin treated together, but after witnessing her struggle with the medicine… Cedric couldn’t bear it.
It was too painful.
He finally understood why she had refused surgery, whether for her eyes or her skin.
It was simply too agonizing.
Just taking the medication was subjecting her to such profound suffering, let alone the multiple procedures to repair her skin.
As she had said…!
Did he really think that after being injured, getting medical treatment would be enough?
The pain during an injury was one thing, but during the recovery, there was a different, more excruciating kind of pain waiting for her.
Once someone got hurt, often they lost the courage to get better.
That was what Natalie had experienced.
She was telling him that now she didn’t even have the courage to recover.
Those experiences were more than just painful for her–they were things she didn’t want to
face in her entire life.
After Natalie fell asleep, Cedric carefully tucked her in. She seemed especially afraid of the cold, so he paid extra attention at night.
Edward had also emphasized that she shouldn’t catch a cold, explaining the importance of her body’s smooth recovery.
If her health deteriorated, the time needed for recuperation would only increase.

Before even taking the medicine, cold sweat had already formed on Natalie’s forehead.
This indicated how bitter the medicine truly was.
“Nat?” Seeing Natalie not responding, Cedric’s tone became gentler.
“Cedric, I really hate you!” Natalie hissed through gritted teeth.
Her tone was more intense than any previous time.
Initially, the man might have felt hurt by such words, but now his eyes held an infinite gentleness and patience.
Habits were truly a frightening thing. Even enduring hatred for a while could turn into something familiar with time.
Now, Cedric had grown accustomed to Natalie’s hatred.
Even if she hated him, she could do it by his side.
This was his current attitude towards Natalie!
In the end, Natalie opened her mouth and took a sip. With just one mouthful, she almost
Just after taking a sip, Natalie couldn’t help but ask for sugar. It was never this difficult when she took medicine by Heather’s side in the past.
Lydia and Xyla were heartbroken. They had secretly tasted this medicine before. It was truly
In this aspect, Natalie couldn’t be blamed for being delicate.
This medicine was simply…
“Miss, open your mouth.”
Originally, they were supposed to give her sugar after finishing the medicine. However, Lydia felt too much sympathy for Natalie and couldn’t bear to watch any longer.
The bitter taste eased with sugar in her mouth, allowing Natalie to calm herself and keep her. mouth open.
Finally, after managing to swallow a bowl of medicine, Natalie declared, “I’m skipping breakfast!”
That was the only thought on her mind right now. She just wanted to eat lots and lots of sugar.
Normally, she wasn’t a big fan of sweets and consumed very little sugary food.
But this time, there was just no other way. Besides sweet things, nothing else could alleviate
