Ethan had brought Olivia and Jeff back from the island in a hurry. Ever since then, he didn’t pay much attention to Avery.
Ethan did hear that Avery had gone back to his home country, though.
By the looks of it, Avery didn’t intend to return to Aldenvine and take Olivia from him.
In other words, Olivia was probably a toy Avery played with on a whim. He wasn’t sincere at all.
Ethan was extremely furious about it.
The woman he loved the most was pregnant with someone else’s child, but that someone didn’t even care about it.
Ethan didn’t know how he should treat Olivia. For the past few days, he tried to convince himself to
But his mind couldn’t let go of the thought that the child wasn’t his.
He couldn’t peacefully treat the child as his own. In another 20 days or so, Olivia would be able to undergo the operation.
Olivia’s health wasn’t too great, and she looked very thin. She needed to nourish her body before the
Once again, Ethan asked someone to deliver a bunch of nourishing ingredients to the villa.
After the meal, Jeff wanted to say something, but he hesitated.
Looking at him, Olivia said, “Dad, just tell me if you have something to say.”
After some more hesitation, Jeff finally spoke up.
“Liv, are you mad at Ethan because of your wrist? When I woke up, I realized that there was something off about your relationship.
“He tries his best to please you, but you won’t even spare him a glance.
“Also, he doesn’t come home for dinner these days. He’s always avoiding you.”
Olivia replied, “Dad, it’s true that there are some grudges between us. He’s avoiding me because he knows that I’m mad.”
“Liv, you liked him so much in the past. How did you turn out like this?
“No one can be flawless for life. It’s okay as long as he admits his mistakes and changes his ways.”
Olivia couldn’t tell him about her pain. Also, she wasn’t feeling well because of her pregnancy, so she
was annoyed as well.
She didn’t feel like explaining too much.
“Dad, there’s nothing wrong between us. Don’t worry.”
“Dad, I’m very tired. I want to rest now.”
Jeff could sense that there was something off about Olivia these days. She got angry very easily.
When Ethan visited him, he told Ethan about this.
Ethan patiently comforted him, “Don’t worry about us, Mr. Fordham.
“Liv is in a bad mood, so she doesn’t want to see me. I’ll just avoid her and wait until she’s not mad anymore.”
“I’m so sorry for the trouble.”
“You’re being too serious, Mr. Fordham. Come, let me help you walk a few steps.”
Jeff could already walk a short distance with help. Even though it was a slow process, he was recovering better than expected.
Ethan could also rest assured. The better Jeff got, the less guilty he would feel about it.
After comforting Jeff, Ethan crept into Olivia’s room.
For the past few nights, he had been checking in on Olivia after she had fallen asleep. He didn’t know
how to face her.
Like right now, every time he saw Olivia, he would think about some other man’s child in her tummy.
“What are you doing here?” Olivia immediately got into bed.
She covered her tummy with her blanket, subconsciously trying to protect it.
“I’m here to visit you.”
“There’s nothing to visit. I’m doing fine.” Olivia gripped the blanket tightly.
“Are you going to go crazy again?”
She vividly remembered the bloodied Ethan that night.
She had thrown up violently then. Even now, she felt like she was retching when she imagined the
smell of blood.
“Don’t be scared, Liv.”
Olivia’s expression was earnest. “Ethan, why don’t you get some treatment together with your sister? “You are sick, too, and I mean it.”
