There was a thud on the other end of the line as if something heavy had hit the ground.
Then, Ethan’s voice sounded in disbelief. “What did you just say? Pregnant?”
“She’s taking folic acid. If she’s not pregnant, why would she take something like that?”
Ethan gritted his teeth. “Are you sure you’re not seeing things?”
“Come on, I know I grew up overseas, but I can still read Arlandian. I know how to read folic acid.” The call ended at that moment.
Henry frowned. He wondered what had happened with Ethan, for Ethan didn’t make sense these days.
Everly dashed toward Olivia, stuffing the folic acid into the latter’s hands. “Don’t forget to add this to your vitamins.”
“No need for thanks. You have to give birth to a healthy baby, alright?” Everly patted Olivia on the shoulder.
Olivia nodded. As if thinking of something, she asked, “No one saw you, right?”
“Don’t worry, I’m very fast. This packaging is so fancy that dumb man won’t understand what it is at all.”
Olivia didn’t have much of an impression about Henry. So, she concluded that he wasn’t involved with Ethan.
It was only then that she sighed in relief.
“Good. Rest well, and don’t work too hard.”
“Okay. You should take good care of yourself, too. I’ll visit you when I have days off. Just call me if something comes up.
“Don’t be shy to trouble me; I’m even worried that you’re not giving me enough trouble.”
Olivia replied, “Okay.”
The two exchanged glances. Olivia tossed the packaging into the trash can. Then, she put the folic acid into a vitamin bottle before she left.
She felt much better at the thought of her child.
Even the blue sky and white clouds outside looked much nicer.
She even bought some of her favorite cakes and coffee on the streets before going back.
After having a child, she only wanted to share wonderful things with them.
In her heart, she talked to the child.
“Baby, this is my favorite coffee. Do you like it? Also, I’ve been a fan of this mousse cake for a decade. “When you’re born, I’ll buy some for you too. Are you a boy or a girl? Will you have a sweet tooth?” She would retch a little before this. But after eating the desserts, her condition was relieved.
The child seemed to share the same tastes as her. She didn’t feel nauseous at all.
As she thought more about it, she started visualizing a baby with a sweet smile.
Olivia started to see meaning in life.
A cold voice sounded. “What are you smiling about? You look quite happy.”
Olivia shivered. She was so absorbed in her fantasies that she didn’t notice Ethan nearing her. Unable to stop smiling in time, she looked at him a little guiltily.
She didn’t know why she would feel guilty, either. Ethan was the one who owed her anyway.
“What does that have to do with you? Do you have a problem with me smiling?” she retorted as usual. She wondered if she was seeing things, but she felt as if Ethan’s gaze was questioning her somehow. “Where did you go today?”
Olivia was even more furious now. “You sent bodyguards, didn’t you? Just ask them about it instead of asking me.
“Why should I tell you, anyway? Do I not have the right to leave the house anymore?
“You shouldn’t have broken my hand. You should break my legs instead so that I will never leave the house!”
If she said the same things in the past, Ethan would try to coax and soothe her.
But now, the man’s quiet voice rang out. “I quite want to do that.”
Stunned, Olivia looked up at Ethan. She only saw the cold and obsessed look in his eyes.
It felt like a beast that had locked onto its prey. Olivia felt her hair standing on end. Uneasiness began to spread in her heart.
