Although Olivia managed to keep her babies, Ethan stripped her of the last ray of hope in her life.
Now that he knew that he was the father, he wouldn’t let her go that easily in the future.
However, she was sick of this game.
As if she was trapped in a big net, there was nowhere to escape.
She neither knew how to take revenge nor saw hope.
She couldn’t do anything during her pregnancy. The only thing she could do was stroke her belly again and again, praying that it would be a smooth delivery.
Olivia’s low spirits didn’t go unnoticed by Jeff.
He could already wander around at home because his legs got better. He didn’t need others to support
It was the early summer, and the temperature was rising.
Lying down under a tree, Olivia was getting sleepy and fell asleep.
When she woke up, there was a blanket over her. Jeff was waving a fan to shoo the mosquitoes away as he always did when she was a child.
Her mother passed away, when she was younger, but he gave her all the love she needed.
Her childhood wasn’t a sad one due to the absence of maternal love.
On the contrary, she grew up into a confident and capable person under Jeff’s love.
At that time, her eyes spoke of determination, and she gave a warm yet confident aura to others.
He had long noticed something after he regained consciousness-it was rare to see her smile.
She wouldn’t bring up Ethan in front of Jeff, either.
She would put on a gentle smile sometimes, but not anymore. Aside from eating and sleeping, she was mostly absent-minded.
Even though she had been forcing smiles so that he wouldn’t notice, Jeff could see through her.
After all, she was the daughter he raised for
Ethan was the cause of her personality change.
Jeff didn’t know what Ethan had done. The couple’s relationship was getting worse after Ethan took her back home.
He was aware of everything, and it pained him to see her acting this way. Thus, he spent most of his time keeping her company.
Olivia was baffled to see him waving a fan gently as soon as she woke up. “Dad.”
“You’re awake. Are you thirsty? Tea time is ready.”
Her cheeks turned red. “I’m not a kid, Dad.”
He chuckled and stroked her hair. “To me, you will always be a kid. I got your back.”
“Olivia, I know that you’re not having a happy life right now. Let’s leave this place.”
She was taken aback by that. “Is this place bad?”
“It’s not bad, but you’re unhappy. It’s been a long time since I saw a genuine smile on your face.
“I don’t know what’s going on between you and Ethan. But if he’s the cause for it, I will get you out of here.”
He caressed her hair gently. “I’m broke and can’t provide you the best like before.
“But I can get a job and earn a living to feed you. Do you still remember what I said?
“Happiness comes before anything. The others come after that. I wish to see my daughter’s happy face, not watching her living days gloomily.
“I’ve been through the same thing before. If something’s wrong in a relationship, you need time to
“You’re still young, and there’s a long life ahead of you. Give yourself and Ethan some space.”
Biting her lip, she shook her head lightly. “We can’t leave for now, Dad. We can’t go anywhere.”
He remained firm with his stance. “Why not? Do you think that I can’t feed you because I’m old? I-” “No. It’s not because of you.” She looked at her belly while stroking it. “I’m pregnant, Dad.”
