In the morning, Olivia woke up from a nightmare. She could still remember the details vividly. Her back was covered in sweat.
Recently, she felt peaceful and hadn’t had such a horrifying nightmare.
She got out of bed and headed to the bathroom to shower. The babies in her stomach began to move around as water from the showerhead touched her swollen belly. The babies seemed to love showering. They would be especially active whenever Olivia showered.
The water was warm, gently falling onto Olivia’s stomach.
Most pregnant women’s skin would become rougher, and their facial hair would increase. But Olivia’s skin remained smooth and flawless, which meant she was charming even when pregnant.
Olivia caressed her stomach to calm her children. Their existence brought hope into her life.
She came out of the bathroom and was still slightly spooked. The room was utterly silent. She turned
on her phone.
Olivia had cut off her connection to the outside world for months. She had yet to catch up on the latest
Strangely, there was no longer any information about Ethan and Marina. It was like it had been intentionally blocked.
She hadn’t seen Ethan in three months. She figured he was probably busy trying to be a good husband
Everly would always post some depressing text on Instagram at night. But she would still be busy as a bee at work the next day. Olivia thought she was doing pretty well. Her employer was very strict, but
the pay was good.
She also saw updates from other people she knew. There wasn’t much change. Olivia noticed a link that someone had shared. It was a collector’s auction. Olivia wasn’t interested in such events but tapped into the link to see if there were any items from the Fordham residence.
She managed to find the emerald pendants that Jeff was hung up on. They were the Fordham family’s
Olivia thought Jeff might regain consciousness if he held the emerald pendants in his hands since he sometimes moved his fingers when she talked.
Olivia looked at when the auction would begin and asked one of her attendants to get an invitation for her. It was an anonymous auction. She figured she wouldn’t attract any attention if she were careful not to show herself in public.
Ethan heard about this, but he didn’t try to stop Olivia. He had sent a lot of men to investigate in secret. Toxic Hive had left the city, and even the Black Ravens, which posed a threat to Olivia, were
gone. Olivia wouldn’t be in danger if she kept a low profile.
But Ethan wanted to prevent accidents from happening, so he still arranged some capable bodyguards for her. He just wanted to ensure Olivia’s safety on this trip.
In order to cater to Olivia’s emotional needs during the pregnancy, Ethan would do his best to fulfill
Mona jumped for joy when she heard that they could finally go out.
“We’re finally allowed to go out! It’s been a long time coming!”
Olivia smiled and said, “Look at the date.”
“It’s 30th August. What about it?” Mona asked while blinking.
Olivia flicked her forehead and said, “Isn’t it the day your upperclassman is coming back? You should meet him at the airport. You don’t have to worry about me while I’m at the auction. There will be a lot of bodyguards keeping me safe.”
“Olivia, I told you that you don’t have to do this. I still have plenty of chances…”
Olivia placed a finger on Mona’s lip and said, “Don’t say that ever again. You might have plenty of chances in the future, but you never know what the future holds. Cherish the present. Do the things you want to do while you’re still young so that you won’t leave any regrets.”
Mona understood what Olivia meant. “Alright.”
Mona quickly picked out a new change of clothes. “Do I look good in this?”
Olivia sighed inwardly when she looked at Mona, who was spinning in circles. She admired Mona’s youthfulness.
Olivia was a few years younger than Mona, but she had already lost the glimmer of joy in her eyes. She was all beaten and bruised.
“You look beautiful. He’ll definitely be charmed by you,” Olivia said sincerely.
