Olivia’s eyes were devoid of happiness as she looked at Ethan. “I don’t wanna admit it, but they are your babies.”
His expression lit up almost instantly. He was happy yet surprised.
She added coldly, “And you almost killed them. I will never allow someone like you to become their
“Sorry, Liv.” These days, the only words that come out of Ethan’s mouth were apologies.
“Not everything can be redeemed with an apology.
“Ethan, look at my face. This slap isn’t from her but from you.” Olivia reclined in the chair, exhausted.
There had been too much for her body to take in since she was pregnant.
She had used up a lot of energy while trying to break free from the nurses’ grasp. So, she was all in.
It seemed like Ethan believed her, so she didn’t want to explain anything to him further.
He parted his lips but didn’t say anything.
Looking at her tired face, he hugged her and sighed. “Liv, I know that you hate me. But I can never bring myself to let you go no matter what happens.”

But why did he feel like he was going to lose her for real?
Like a porcelain doll, Olivia was awfully quiet on their way back home. She let him hug her and apply medicine to her face.
She didn’t avoid him at all.
Her swollen cheek kept reminding her that he was going to do something bad to her.
When they arrived home, she lay in bed while facing her back at him.
She was basically driving him out of the room.
Ethan stood beside the bed in silence for a moment before saying, “Liv, I’ll request door-to-door appointments with the doctor for your prenatal examinations. You don’t have to go to the hospital.
She ignored him, and he added, “I’m not trying to control you. You know my identity.
“I didn’t introduce you to the public when we first got married because I’m afraid that you’ll be their first target. I’ve found out who pushed Connor down the stairs.”
Her body slightly shuddered at that.
