Before daybreak, Olivia and Jeff were sent away. Even Olivia had no idea where they would be taken.
When they arrived, she found herself in an old courtyard.
She thought for a moment, realizing that Ethan didn’t own a house like his under his name.
By the looks of it, for security purposes, Ethan had found a safe place. No one would’ve guessed that she was here.
Jeff was quite fond of this place. It looked a lot like the Fordham residence.
Getting out of the car, Jeff stood up and walked a few steps without his cane.
When Olivia saw that, she went forward to help him. “Careful, Dad.”
A happy look flashed across Jeff’s amicable face. “Olivia, I can walk by myself now.”
“Yes, Dad. We’re not in a hurry, so take your time. Don’t trip and fall.”
Olivia felt fulfilled when she saw Jeff getting better by the day.
When his condition had stabilized, she could ask him about the truth back then.
Every night, she went to sleep with thoughts of those secrets in her heart. Even in her dreams, she wanted to know what exactly had happened.
Kelvin hurried over to support Jeff. “Mr. Fordham, it’s a good thing that you’re recovering quickly, but you have to go at a moderate pace. Don’t rush it.”
“Don’t worry, I know what I’m doing.”
Jeff smiled. In reality, he was feeling quite anxious in his heart.
He had many things he hadn’t done, and he didn’t want to drag Olivia down, either.
After retiring to his room every day, he would practice as he leaned against the wall.
He could still make a comeback.
The new yard was comfortable, and it was a perfect place for Olivia to rest and take care of her
After their last parting, Ethan didn’t visit again.
He was probably worried that his whereabouts might be exposed. Or, he was just too busy, or it might have something to do with his impending marriage,
Twenty days passed in the blink of an eye.
Olivia’s symptoms of early pregnancy gradually faded.
In recent days, her appetite was alarming, and she would get hungry very quickly.
Now that the throwing up was gone, Olivia looked healthier, and her face had also gotten a little rounder. She felt sleepy all day.
Even Mona couldn’t help but smile as she said, “Look, our beautiful Olivia has gotten even prettier.
“Other pregnant women have loose skin, but I’ve never seen someone like you before. Your skin is so supple!”
They behaved like sisters around each other. Mona’s personality was quite like Everly’s.
One of them was easygoing, whereas the other was straightforward.
They were the sort that was relaxing to be around.
During the time she spent around Olivia, Mona could see that Olivia’s mood was improving by the day.
In the past, Olivia lived every day in negativity, and she never had any hope for the future.
But now, Olivia began to look forward to the future. She wanted to live longer to see Jeff recover and to give birth to the baby.
Now that she had hope, she felt like life didn’t seem that hard to endure anymore.
Olivia touched her belly, which was still flat. Suddenly, a look of sorrow appeared on her face.
“What’s the matter, Olivia? Did you not like the fruits just now?”
“That’s not it.”
“Then it must be the desserts. Were they too sweet or not sweet enough? I’ll tell the kitchen staff
about it later.”
Olivia had no complaints about her life here.
The vegetables she ate every day were harvested by a farmer nearby. He had used organic fertilizers instead of chemical ones.
The fruits were also flown in straight from their countries of origin.
She could taste the fresh flavor of sunshine in every bite. The fruits were sweet and juicy.
“It’s not that. I’m just thinking that it’s about time I get a pregnancy checkup,” Olivia said in a
She wanted to see if the baby had a heartbeat and how they were developing.
But she didn’t know what excuse she should use to go to the hospital.
“Why don’t I say that you’re feeling unwell, so I’m taking you to the hospital for a checkup?”
Olivia sighed. It might not be the best way, but it was her only option.
Ethan would be getting married in a few days. He was probably so busy that he wouldn’t have time for her.
She could contact Calvin before the checkup. Then, she could do it like before.
There wouldn’t be any reports, and the doctor would tell her the results right after the checkup.
Hence, they wouldn’t leave any traces.
“Alright. Be careful.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll just tell him that it’s a regular checkup. Mr. Miller won’t find out.”
