Under Everly’s cover, Olivia entered the ultrasound room.
On the surface, she was accompanying Everly to get an examination.
But in reality, she was the person who lay on the bed and rolled up her clothes.
The female middle-aged doctor was very gentle. “Don’t worry, I’ll examine the baby thoroughly for you.”
Smiling, Everly said, “We owe Calvin another favor now.”
The cold probe slid around the surface of her tummy. Olivia was both nervous and anxious.
She had been in ill health for the past six months. She even had chemotherapy six months ago, so she
didn’t know if it would affect the child.
“Doctor, how’s the child developing?”
The doctor chuckled. “They’re still too small, so I can’t be sure yet.
“Still, the gestational sac is at a normal size so far, and there are no signs of ectopic pregnancy.
“Everything is normal, so don’t worry too much.”
“Thank you, doctor.”
“You’re welcome. Remember to maintain a good mood. Eat more vegetables and fruits, and take folic acid every day, understand?”
Olivia thanked the doctor profusely. The doctor waved her hand. “Come back for a checkup when the
child has grown a little more.
“Don’t do any strenuous activities for the time being. The first three months are the riskiest, after all.
Olivia replied, “Okay, I understand.”
At least she was sure that the child was fine for now. She was elated about it.
Seeing how happy Olivia was, Everly’s mood improved a lot as well.
“Look at you! I haven’t seen your smile in forever. You’re smiling right up to your ears!
“You’re a mother again, so think twice before doing anything in the future. Don’t get mad because of Ethan.”
“I know. I have to live for my child’s sake.”
Everly felt a hint of bitterness in her heart. Reaching out, she hugged Olivia as she choked.
“Please be safe. Don’t be sad about anything, and remember to smile every day.
“Give birth to the child in one piece, please. I want to pamper him as his godmother.”
Olivia replied, “I will.”
“Call me if anything happens. You can always depend on me.”
“Okay, got it.”
The two held each other, sobbing. Then, a knock sounded on the door.
A man in a suit and leather shoes was standing at the entrance. There was even a bouquet made of real cash in his hand.
“Did I come at a bad time?”
Frustrated, Everly roared, “Shut up if you know that you came at a bad time. Why are you so eager to prove that you’re not—”
Before she could utter the word “mute,” she suddenly realized that something was off.
She looked at the handsome man standing at the door.
“Oh, look who’s here! My loveable and wonderful boss!”
She hastily dried her tears with her sleeve. Then, she strode toward the man.
When she passed by a stool, she even crouched and wiped it with her sleeve as if it were the most natural thing in the world.
She was being extremely obvious about pleasing him.
“Oh, Mr. Synder, you shouldn’t have brought presents. You could’ve just come bare-handed! I’m so flattered!”
With a faked, flattered expression on her face, she reached out and took the money.
She even muttered, “You must be tired from holding this bouquet, Mr. Synder.
“I’m not afraid of labor, so allow me to do all the dirty work.”
Grinning, Everly placed the bouquet inside a cabinet. She mumbled, “You have great taste, Mr. Synder.
“Only real cash carries weight like that. But it must be quite tiring to fold them.”
She behaved like a bona fide money-grubber. Olivia was stunned at the sight.
This was the strict boss Everly complained about every day, a villain in her dictionary.
Sensing Olivia’s gaze, the man finally looked at her.
Hastily drying her tears, Olivia said politely, “Hi, I’m Everly’s friend, Olivia Fordham. Eve often tells me about you.’
“Oh? What does she usually say about me?”
Everly stiffened. Smiling, Olivia said, “She says that you’re very accomplished at a young age. “You’re also a capable leader and a role model for us. She respects you very much.”
