Olivia realized that it was a meteor.
She had waited many times for meteors since she was young.
Even after staying up countless nights, she never managed to catch them.
But the meteors had come so suddenly tonight that she didn’t even prepare for it.
When she came to her senses, she had already put her palms together.
There was a single thought on her mind: she wished for Connor to be safe.
Olivia opened her eyes.
Brilliant silver light filled her vision. The white meteors dragged their long tails behind them.
One by one, they streaked across the vast expanse of the sky.
It was breathtakingly beautiful.
Olivia felt like she was dreaming. But it was true; she was in the middle of a meteor shower.
She couldn’t care less about not seeing Ethan ever again.
She was only thinking of the baby in her tummy.
Olivia made two wishes..
Firstly, she wanted Connor to be safe. Secondly, she wished that she could give birth to the baby without any problems.
When Ethan was rushing back to the city, he also saw the stars falling from the sky.
He made a wish to the meteors.
If they could truly make wishes come true, his only desire was to live to a ripe old age with Olivia.
He knew that Olivia would find his wish pathetic, but he had never changed his wish to grow old with
When Ethan hastily arrived at the hospital, Connor had already woken up.
When Connor saw Ethan, he said with teary eyes, “Daddy…”
Ethan pulled the child into his embrace.
Stepping forward, Mina explained, “The checkup is complete. Fortunately, there’s nothing serious with Master Connor.”
“Why would he fall from the stairs out of the blue?” Ethan was furious.
After all, Connor was an intelligent boy, and he had developed faster than other children his age.
He was more than a year old, so he would know better than to fall from the stairs.
Connor would hold onto the railing in dangerous places like that.
“It might be an accident.”
Ethan snorted. He knew his son very well.
“Have you checked the surveillance?”
“No, I’ve been holding Ms. Erina all this while. Are you suspecting that this isn’t an accident, Mr. Miller?”
“There can’t be this many accidents.”
Ethan gently caressed Connor’s head with his fingers. “Tell me. Why did you want to leave?”
Connor said pitifully, “Mommy. Want Mommy.”
Ethan’s heart ached.
Since he brought Olivia home, he dropped hints that he would get the child home. But Olivia had been
cold about it.
Their relationship was broken because of Olivia’s hand and the incident with Leia.
Now, Olivia had to endure the pains of pregnancy as well, so Ethan gave up on the idea.
He sighed. Connor was quite brilliant, to say the least.
When Connor was a few months old, Ethan showed him Olivia’s photo and told him that this was his
Ethan thought that the young child wouldn’t understand. But Connor had committed it to memory.
Connor never called Marina his mother. But every time he met Olivia, he was very close to her.
This was the natural connection due to them being blood-related.
“Good boy. You’ll meet her one day.”
Ethan hugged Connor. After leaving Brent some instructions, he went to Marina’s ward.
After Marina received treatment, her life was no longer in danger. Her health was improving as well.
Unfortunately, her legs were broken, so she might not be able to stand again.
She leaned against the bed as she watched Ethan entering with the child in his arms.
Her pale face looked weary. “Ethan, is he alright?”
“Fortunately, he’s not gravely injured. He fainted from falling, and he had a mild concussion. It’s not
It was only then that Marina sighed in relief. She reached out to touch Connor’s cheek.
“Be more careful in the future, Connor.”
Awkwardly enough, she had only extended her hand when Connor buried his face in Ethan’s chest.
Marina could never understand what was going on.
Connor was like an ungrateful kid. No matter how well she treated him, he refused to acknowledge her as his mother.
Ethan found an excuse. “He’s still recovering from shock. You should rest.”
“Ethan…” Marina reached out. “Won’t you spend time with me?”
“I don’t think I can do that. It’s time for the children to go to bed.”
With that, Ethan didn’t even look back. He placed Connor onto the baby seat. “Good boy. I’ll take you to your mommy right now. She’s the only mommy you have.”
