Olivia was not the only person refusing to give him the phone all this time. Ethan did the same thing,
Jeff could guess an inkling of the situation from that.
After all, he was a grown man, not a three-year-old kid.
She hurriedly said, “Dad, some things did happen while you were in a coma. I’m planning to tell you about it one by one after you recover.”
His fingers trembled when he heard that.
“I knew that something bad had happened. I woke up, and your hand is disabled! Your relationship with Ethan is bad as well. What happened?”
Noticing his vehement emotions, she quickly helped him to sit.
“Dad, look. This is why I didn’t wanna tell you. It’s nothing big. I had a fight with him because of
“Didn’t you see him begging me for forgiveness the whole day? If it was a serious matter, we would’ve parted ways already.”
Only then he was able to keep his cool. “You’re right. Ethan keeps promising me that he won’t let you down. So, what happened between the two of you?”
“Dad, I’ll tell you in a few days. You barely show signs of recovery.
“Have you forgotten what the doctor said? That you can’t take a shock at the moment?”
She poured him a glass of warm milk. “Actually, those matters are over. It’s normal for married couples to fight.
“If there’s a problem, solve it. It’s that easy. I’m big enough to handle it.”
“Okay, but you must tell me if anyone treats you badly. Even if I’m not in the state to do anything, I will make sure he pays for it.”
Olivia faintly smiled. “Got it. I know that you love me the most in this world.”
He glanced at Jeff’s hands, which weren’t trembling that much anymore.
She shook the doubt off her head.
It wasn’t the right time to ask, so she decided to wait for some other day.
Dad. I should get going.” She took a deep breath after leaving his room.
Everyone wished to know the truth, but most of the truth was a painful reality.
Standing on the balcony, she reached out to touch the rain. She watched the storm happening, hoping
that everything would be fine tomorrow.
The next morning, Olivia forwent breakfast and headed to the hospital alongside Mona.
Mona kept chattering like a singing bird.
“Olivia, what would you like to have after the checkup later? I can prepare it for you.
“It’s a rare chance to be outside. Let’s grab something nice.
“It must be boring to have bland food every day. Why don’t we have something different?”
Something crossed her mind, prompting her to lick her lips. Her eyes lit up in anticipation.
Joy rubbed off on Olivia as she said, “Anything.”
In the end, Mona bought her a lot of street food. They were Olivia’s favorites during her schooling days.
After the nurse drew her blood, Mona handed them to Olivia.
“You have other checkups later. Eat up!”
Now that Olivia was free, she texted Calvin. After confirming that there were no issues, she finally dug in with peace of mind.
Following that, she entered the ultrasound room, which she had previously been before.
It was the same doctor who was looking at her with a gentle smile.
“Lie down, and I can start checking on you.”
“It’s not a big deal. Here we go.”
Olivia was on tenterhooks, worrying that the baby wasn’t growing well.
When the doctor’s expression suddenly changed, Olivia’s heart squeezed. “Does something matter?” “Yes, and it’s a big problem.”
