Olivia was used to Ethan’s coldness. She had thought that the scariest part of Ethan was his cruelty.
But at that moment, she realized something.
The straightforward attacks were nothing compared to the smile on his face and the affection in his
Those were even scarier!
Also, she was just guessing. She didn’t dare reveal that she was already pregnant.
“Ethan, I won’t love you. I never will.”
Ethan didn’t mind. “We still have a long way ahead of us, Liv.”
Olivia didn’t argue with him. She curled up, not daring to provoke Ethan too much.
She wouldn’t want to argue with someone who had lost his mind.
If she ever did, she was probably tired of it all or complaining that he was the one sick of life instead.
The only thing she could do right now was focus on development.
She would wait until Jeff had recovered and when the baby in her tummy had grown up and was born successfully.
Then, she would try to live a little longer.
Before that happened, she couldn’t get involved in unnecessary trouble.
Seeing that Olivia had closed her eyes, Ethan gently covered her with a blanket. Then, he leaned in and planted a kiss on her forehead.
“Don’t even try to leave me, Liv. That’s a very foolish idea, understand?”
It was June, but she felt cold all over her body. She didn’t dare to move.
Even if Ethan wasn’t insane, he was probably halfway there.
The next morning, she woke up to the chirping of the birds in the mountain.
She subconsciously looked to the side, realizing that both Ethan and Connor were gone.
She washed up briefly in the tent. Then, she pulled back the tent curtain,
The refreshing morning breeze soothed all the unhappiness in her heart. Olivia greedily took a deep.
She felt like the sadness in her chest had all disappeared.
Somewhere nearby, Kelvin was somehow fighting with a squirrel.
With his hands on his hips, Kelvin said furiously, “How dare you get up there! Come down if you dare!
There were two squirrels on the tree, one bigger than the other. The big one dropped a small pine nut on Kelvin’s head.
“How dare you hit me! I’m telling you, you’re done for!”
With that, he rolled up his sleeves and began to climb the tree. He looked determined to fight the squirrels to death.
Meanwhile, Brent was boiling the water. He seemed to be preparing some sort of breakfast.
When he noticed Olivia’s gaze, he looked at her with a friendly expression and greeted her. “Mrs. Miller.”
A distance away, some bodyguards were checking the situation.
Some were building a small clay stove, but Olivia didn’t know what they were doing. There was smoke coming from the stove.
Olivia looked around her. Brent told her, “Mr. Miller and Master Connor are in the valley ahead of us.”
“I don’t care where he is,” Olivia replied coldly. Then, she went in the opposite direction on purpose.
Soon, she heard a familiar voice calling out for her. “Mommy, Mommy.”
Olivia was tossing pebbles by the creek. She turned around to look at Connor.
Connor was running quite fast. Still, the terrain was different from the flat floor of his home. Olivia stood up, saying, “Slow down. Don’t rush.”
As she spoke, she ran toward Connor. In the end, despite her efforts, she was too late.
Connor was holding something in his hands, mumbling, “Flower.”
He tripped over a small rock, losing his balance and taking a great fall.
Olivia hastened her pace in worry, running over to Connor.
Connor got up on his own. Acting like nothing had happened, he ran over and picked up the flower
There was an innocent smile on his face.
Olivia examined the item.
It was a beautiful flower crown, and the flowers were freshly picked. They were still blooming
Connor urgently held up the flower crown, gesturing with his limbs. “Daddy, pick.”
Seeing that Olivia wasn’t reacting, he reached out and tugged at her skirt.
“Mommy, wear.” He kept patting his head to convey his thoughts.
Olivia crouched down. Connor happily placed the flower crown on Olivia’s head. She had seen this exact scene in her dreams!
