Frederick spun around, giving Yuna a quick once–over, and instantly asked, “Where?”
“Mr. Winston, she is in Room 305 of the Stonebridge Memorial Hospital’s inpatient department. The lady has lost consciousness and is currently receiving treatment.”
“Got it.” He quickly hung up the call, his emotions swirling inside him.
You could say that Yuna’s current state had a lot to do with her family circumstances.
Ablet and Zoe ran a casino, their coarseness having a profound influence on her.
If Yuna had lived with the elderly lady all along, away from the temptations and hustle of the world, she definitely wouldn’t have become the person she was today.
Frederick didn’t want this person who’d once helped him to turn down the wrong path. He was hoping Laverne’s appearance could reawaken Yuna’s conscience.
Seeing him hang up. Yuna seemed to calm down a bit and threw herself into his arms.
“Frederick, everything I said was true. You and grandma are my world, and I can’t lose any more.
And my perfume making skills were taught by grandma. It’s a pity though, I still don’t know where she is.”
This time, Frederick didn’t push Yuna away. His body was somewhat tense as he calmly asked, “Do you miss her?”
Tears were streaming down Yuna’s face, and she looked heartbroken.
Nodding like a pecking chicken, her face was a picture of sorrow, “Of course I do. I dream of seeing grandma. But I guess this wish will never come true.”
Frederick gently patted Yuna’s shoulders, softly saying, “Get up, I’ll drive you somewhere.”
Yuna was stunned, looking at him with a puzzled expression, “Frederick, where are you taking me? What are you doing?”
By this point, he’d already started the car, quickly driving out of the parking lot, “A surprise for you.”
Hearing this, Yuna’s eyes lit up instantly, “Frederick, did I hear that right? You’re giving me a surprise?”
Her eyes sparkled, “Then… have you forgiven me?”
His face expressionless, “Depends on your behavior.”
If even Laverne couldn’t awaken the goodness in Yuna’s heart, he really needed to consider whether it was necessary to keep the promise he’d made years ago.
Yuna nodded vigorously, “Frederick, I won’t do anything to upset you again. I promise, this is the last time.”
Frederick didn’t speak to Yuna any further. He drove straight to Stonebridge Memorial Hospital.
Half an hour later, Frederick parked the car in the hospital’s outdoor parking lot.
Seeing it was a hospital, Yuna seemed a bit puzzled. “Frederick, why did you take me to a hospital?”
Frederick turned off the engine and got out of the car, “Follow me and you’ll know.”
What was going on?
Why would the surprise Frederick had for her be in a hospital?
This wasn’t a good sign.
Yuna furrowed her brows, seeming a bit displeased. But because Frederick took her here, she would go no matter how much she disliked the place.
Yuna quickly followed Frederick’s pace, pondering as she walked.
Was there someone important to Frederick staying in this hospital?
A family member of his?
Ever since she’d known him, she’d never met any of Frederick’s family, nor had she heard him mention any.
So was Frederick’s purpose this time to introduce her to his family?
