“Marguerite?” Steven asked tentatively. “You had something to ask me, why did you go silent?”
Miley pushed her impatiently. Marguerite had yet to voice her question. What did someone else’s sudden heart attack have to do with her!
Miley was fuming, snatched the phone, and started talking to Steven. “Steven, I’m Marguerite’s good friend. We’ve met before. I think you should know what happened at the party today, so I want to ask you, how did the pregnancy test report leak?”
Miley’s tone was very firm and obviously sharp. Her attitude was like she was about to charge up and question Steven, did you make Marguerite’s pregnancy test report public!
Steven, however, was not angry at all. Instead, his tired voice was filled with patience. “After Marguerite had her checkup that day, she forgot to take her bag and report, so I had my assistant deliver it to her. The pregnancy report was in my hands for less than ten minutes.”
Marguerite’s heart began to race. Steven’s assistant never personally handed her the stuff! She started to get anxious, her tone becoming urgent. “I did receive the bag and some reports, but it wasn’t your assistant who gave them to me; it was sent to my company by courier. Moreover, the pile of reports did not include my pregnancy report. I didn’t think much of it at the time because I thought you were keeping it for me.”
“Marguerite, don’t worry. I’ll ask my assistant about the situation.”
After saying this, Steven immediately hung up the phone. The two of them waited for a few minutes, and Steven sent Marguerite a video. The video was surveillance footage from the hospital.
In the video, Steven’s assistant Janie handed Marguerite’s bag and a stack of reports to Yuna. Then, Steven’s call came quickly.
“Marguerite, this is what happened. Your stuff was left in my office, Janie went out to deliver it to you, but you had already left. She happened to see Yuna there, so she asked Yuna to help deliver it. Your pregnancy report was very likely leaked at that time.”
“That’s infuriating! I knew Yuna was up to no good!” Miley angrily punched the sofa.
“Marguerite, I’m really sorry. The report leaked from my hospital, and I will take responsibility. Can I do anything else for you?”
Steven’s tone was full of self–blame, but Marguerite just lightly pursed her pale lips, shaking her head indifferently. “Steven, you don’t need to take responsibility or apologize. This is my problem, and you guys didn’t know about my feud with Yuna, so you don’t need to take responsibility.”
“Marguerite. I heard about what happened at the party today…” Steven’s tone at the moment was clearly full of nervousness and caution.
He paused, then continued. “If Frederick suspects that the child is not his, you can come to me. I can take a blood sample from your blood, get the fetus‘ DNA, and then compare it with Frederick’s DNA. So Marguerite, would you be willing to do a paternity test?”
