Ethan especially asked a doctor about it. He learned that pregnant women would have very unstable moods during their pregnancy.
He knew that Olivia held grudges against him. So, he refrained from appearing in front of her for months. He did it so that she could take good care of her pregnancy.
The female corpse incident today had struck a fragile chord in Olivia’s heart. Her tears refused to stop
The babies in her tummy seemed to have sensed her sorrow, for they began to move around in her
Olivia hastily stopped sobbing. Ethan wiped her tears with a hot towel, speaking in a gentle voice. ‘ They’re strangers in the first place, and they don’t have anything to do with you.
“You don’t have to be sad. If she knows about it, I’m sure she’ll thank you.
“You were the one who brought her away from that place so that she could reunite with her family.”
Sniffling, Olivia said sullenly, “Perhaps it’s because we have the same last names. When I learned that she’s Mr. Avery’s sister, I felt like it was my relative who had passed away.”
Olivia also found her words weird. She shook her head helplessly. “I was just too sensitive. I’m fine.
I’ll take good care of myself.”
She looked at Ethan with her moist eyes. “Some time ago, Mr. Avery did indeed help me with some
“He’s older than me, and he’s like an older brother to me. I don’t have any disgraceful connections
Ethan pursed his thin lips, staring at her with a serious gaze. “I know.”
By the looks of it, Olivia was still haunted by his previous misunderstanding of the two having a child.
“It’s getting late now. You should rest.
With that, he turned around and left the room. The chrysanthemums and bougainvilleas were blooming beautifully in the yard.
Ethan smoked cigarette after cigarette.
There was a troubled look on his handsome face. Now, he was careful like Olivia used to be in the past.
He was afraid of losing her.
He wanted to get close to her, but he feared that he would hurt her again. He could only maintain a distance from her, protecting her from far away.
Standing before the window, Olivia looked at the desolate figure. She didn’t say a word.
She knew that regardless of Marina’s existence, she and Ethan could no longer return to who they
Every time she closed her eyes, the image of the female corpse would surface in her mind.
Olivia felt like there was something heavy weighing in her heart. She couldn’t calm down no matter
Ethan sat in the yard for a long time. When he finally came to his senses, he called Brent.
“Look into the Fordham family.”
“Which Fordham family?”
“The one in Brighton. See if they have ever lost a child.”
It was getting late at night. After Olivia went to sleep, Ethan tiptoed into the room. As he gazed at the woman sleeping on the bed, his heavy heart gradually calmed down.
There still weren’t any clues about Olivia’s background. But she felt a strange sense of familiarity with Avery.
She didn’t look like Avery at all, but Ethan still wanted to look into it.
He looked at her in earnest. Suddenly, he saw something move under the bulge of the silk blanket.
Ethan was surprised and delighted. He wondered if it was the babies moving.
The quilt was very thin, and it clung tightly to Olivia’s body.
After making sure that Olivia was fast asleep, Ethan placed his hand on the bulge. He felt like he was a
He wondered if the two little kids were fighting inside. They were kicking around quite a lot.
Usually, Olivia would’ve woken up. But perhaps because she was too tired today, she remained
Ethan grew bolder as he reached in and placed his hand against her silk nightgown.
The fabric was very thin so that he could sense the children’s movements.
The children were already this lively at five months. Ethan wondered if Olivia could endure it in her
Perhaps because they had sensed his presence, the playful children slowly stopped moving. The kicking in the tummy gradually calmed down like the sea.
Ethan was about to retract his hands. But the sleeping woman had opened her eyes before he realized
She looked at him as if she was guarding against a thief. “What are you doing?”
