It took some effort before they could see the face of the other baby. This baby had softer features. Mrs. Miller, this baby looks like you. That’s wonderful. You have a baby boy and a baby girl.”
Olivia wiped her tears and said, “I don’t care about their gender, as long as they’re healthy.”
“Don’t worry, the babies are developing normally. There are no issues. The babies have differing personalities. One is active and the other is more reserved. I’ll send the video to your phone later, so you can look at it whenever you want.”
Olivia nodded and said, “Thanks, Dr. Wells.”
“Don’t mention it. I’m just doing my job. You don’t have to worry, Mrs. Miller. You’ll be able to meet your babies soon.”
After going through all the check-ups, Olivia was finally able to relax. She even showed Mona the
video that Dr. Wells sent her.
Mona loved the video a lot. “These little angels are so adorable. I can’t wait until they’re born.”
Olivia ran her hand over her stomach. “I’m also looking forward to their arrival. I have to tell my
father about this.”
Mona murmured, “Alright, I guess I have to prepare some gifts for the baby.”
Olivia’s footsteps were light and joyful. She went to Jeff’s room, saying, “Dad, I have some good news. The babies are healthy. It’s a boy and a girl. The baby girl is very playful, and the baby boy is reserved. The boy looks like Ethan, but his personality is different. He loves to smile. I think his smile is cute.
“Do you want to see them? You have to wake up soon. The kids would want to see their grandpa.”
Jeff’s finger moved. It was as if he was trying to respond to Olivia.
Olivia saw that and quickly held his hand. “Dad, I’ll wait for you. You have to wake up as soon as possible. We need to stick together. Me and the kids need you.”
At night, Ethan also received the video of the babies. He was thrilled even if he could only see the
outline of their faces.
Ehtan enlarged the video and ran his finger over the screen repeatedly. He was looking forward to meeting the babies in a few more months.
Someone knocked on the door. Ethan said coldly, “Come in.”
Brent was back with the latest news. He noticed the fleeting smile on Ethan’s face.
“Was it good news from Mrs. Miller?”
Brent knew that only Olivia would be able to bring a smile to Ethan’s lips.
“Yeah. I saw the kids. It’s a girl and a boy.”
“You’re so lucky, Mr. Miller. I bet these two babies will be able to help Mrs. Miller get over her trauma.
“How is the investigation going?” Ethan quickly got back to business.
“There’s good news and bad news. Helen didn’t take the death of Mr. and Mrs. Carlton very well. She vanished on the same night. She hasn’t resurfaced in almost six months. I think she has left Aldenvine. The Toxic Hive bases in Aldenvine have also been moved.
“Ms. Miller … left with the others. The Black Ravens have yet to be seen. I’m not sure if the mission has been canceled or if they’re just hiding.”
All leads had gone cold. Following the departure of Toxic Hive, a lot of the events from the past became shrouded in mystery, and the truth was also concealed.
“The good news is that our research team has already finished the tests for the M-1 drug you brought back. We’re able to formulate it ourselves now.”
Ethan frowned. “I remember the documents saying that this drug has side effects.”
“Yes, we’re unable to overcome this flaw yet. Toxic Hive hasn’t been able to do it either. Also, it’s a fact that no drug is perfect. Even cold medicine and antibiotics come with some side effects.”
Brent looked at Ethan’s dissatisfied look and asked tentatively, “Are you planning to use the drug, Mr. Miller?”
“I was, but she left.”
“Are you talking about Ms. Miller? Mr. Miller, I think other than being related to you, her actions were
Brent paused, but Ethan finished his sentence, “Horrendous, right?”
“Her actions are definitely reproachable. If she ever gets arrested, not even you can protect her, Mr. Miller. She’s no longer just a civilian. Rather than keeping her close and have her be a nuisance. between you and Mrs. Miller, you should just forget about her and let her go her own way.”
“I’ll think about it. Let me know if there’s any news about her. Also, you need to look into Liv’s origins.”
“Understood. But it’s ancient history, after all. All the leads have gone cold. Investigating her origins will be hard. I might need more time.”
Ethan lowered his head and looked at the video of the babies. Smiling, he said, “Don’t be afraid, Liv. We’ll be able to see the babies in a few months.”
