Olivia’s mind went blank at that moment as everything felt like a dream. She was certain that something had gone wrong.
She knew all of Ethan’s close friends. There were only a handful of them.
Even if she hadn’t met them before, she would have heard their names before.
None of them went by the name Henry.
Olivia took a deep breath, trying not to freak herself out.
It was possible that Ethan chose a stranger in order not to give the game away; however, what Everly was going to say next toppled all of Olivia’s reasoning.
“The house belongs to Mr. Synder. Remember the day we met?
“Before I chased after you with a bottle of folic acid in hand, he told me that he knew you, that you
were someone’s crush.
“Handing you the folic acid was the only thing I had in mind, so I forgot about that when I went back to talk about work with him.”
Everly was blaming herself. “Sorry, Liv. I was swamped at that time. I only recalled about that when I paid the management fee.
“I thought he was talking about Ethan, so I shook the folic acid packaging in front of him.”
Olivia’s grip on her phone tightened. “What… Did he say?”
Everly sighed. “He asked if I was preparing for pregnancy while seeing someone. If that was the case, I would’ve been fired a long time ago.
“That bastard knows what folic acid is, and he knows Ethan! It’s highly possible that Ethan knew of your pregnancy a long time ago!”
Olivia raised her head, looking at her pale face from the mirror.
The leads were finally connected. Her hunch was right-Ethan knew of her pregnancy all along!
That was why he claimed that he wouldn’t blame her no matter what she had done during the meteor
He thought the babies weren’t his!
“Liv, are you listening?”
“I am,” Only then did Olivia answer.
“Since he has found out that you’re pregnant, has he been acting out of character?”
Olivia replied helplessly, “Now that I think about it, yes. My meals are normally served to pregnant
women. I’m such a fool. I should’ve caught on to it.”
Olivia put her guard down because she hadn’t met him for a while.
“If so, I guess there’s a chance that he couldn’t hurt you and the babies? Otherwise, why would he serve you good food?”
Olivia smiled. “Eve, you learn medicine. I bet you know when’s the perfect time for an abortion, don’t you?”
“When it’s more than four weeks.”
“Yeah, it’s impossible when the baby is still very young. The best time is when it’s over four weeks. He provides me with good food for my health because abortion is bad for the mother’s body.
“He hasn’t shown up because he didn’t want me to know that he actually knows the truth.
“He’s waiting, waiting for the babies to grow until it’s the perfect time for an abortion,” she emphasized each and every word.
“Holy cow! Don’t you feel the chills thinking about how you’ve been sharing the same bed with him all the while? Can you sleep?” Everly covered her mouth.
“I feel like I’m getting to know a whole new side of him. Not only is he cruel, he’s calculating! Where are you right now?”
“At the hospital. I told him that I wanna come here for a checkup last night, and he agreed to it
“If I’m not mistaken, he must’ve prepared the operating room for the abortion already.”
“What the fuck! What are you waiting for then? Tell him that they’re his babies, or things will get ugly!”
“It’s no use. I know him very well. He wasn’t in his right mind that day.
“He will never think that he’s the father. He’s paranoid, too. He won’t believe me.”
“Liv, stay there and wait for me. I will bring you to somewhere safe right away.
“We can take a DNA test after you give birth to the babies. That’ll be better than-”
“Who are you talking with over the phone?” A gentle voice resounded before Everly could finish. “M-Mr. Synder?”
