As soon as Olivia woke up, her first reaction was to quickly back away. She even covered her tummy
with her left hand.
Ethan saw how wary she was of him. He felt his heart shattering into a million pieces.
“Calm down. I only wanted to touch the children.”
Olivia didn’t believe it. She spoke viciously, behaving like a hen protecting her chicks. “Get out.
“Okay. Don’t get so worked up, Liv. I’m leaving right now.”
Then, she frowned a little. Ethan paused halfway through his way out. Then, he hurried up to her and asked, “What’s the matter? Are the children kicking again? I felt them moving a lot just now.”
Olivia put a hand to her tummy. Ethan was startled by the sudden occurrence.
“Don’t be afraid. I’ll get a doctor here to examine you right away.”
Fortunately, they had the equipment necessary for examinations. The medical team immediately started examining Olivia.
Olivia gripped Ethan’s hand. Beads of sweat covered her forehead.
She recalled that day more than a year ago when she lost her child to premature birth.
She trembled uncontrollably, calling out Ethan’s name.
“Ethan, the children. You have to save our children.”
“Calm down, Liv. I don’t see any blood, so they should be fine.”
No matter how Ethan comforted her, Olivia’s mind was stuck in extreme fear.
After the examination, Cody finally let out a sigh of relief.
“It’s okay, Mrs. Miller. There is nothing wrong with the children so far. From their heart rates, we can
see that the children are a little more active.
“It’s most probably because of your emotions. Were you startled today?”
Ethan supported Olivia, wiping away the sweat on her forehead with a towel.
In his arms, Olivia’s body relaxed when she heard that it wasn’t anything serious.
“Yes, something did happen. Are the children alright?”.
now, yes. Pardon me for saying this, Mrs. Miller. You’ve indeed made it past the first three
“But you should still be careful throughout your pregnancy. Every move you make will affect the
“So, please try to avoid strong emotions. It might negatively affect the children’s development.”
Olivia nodded, feeling a trace of lingering fear. “Got it, Dr. Wells. Sorry for the trouble so late in the night.”
“It’s okay. This is my duty. Take a breath and have a good rest.”
Knowing that the children were fine, Olivia relaxed. Ethan carried her back into the room.
He sat by the bed, looking tenderly down at her. “Are you scared?”
“There’s nothing to be scared about.” Olivia looked away stubbornly.
But as soon as she closed her eyes, she would remember the dream she had just now.
She was standing by the water when she heard an unfamiliar woman’s voice calling out to her. “Sia, Sia.”
When she turned around, she saw a skeleton instead. It was the corpse that was carried out of the
Olivia jolted away. She looked at Ethan, still feeling cold all over her body.
She wondered if she was too concerned about this, which caused her to dream of the corpse.
Seeing how stubborn she was, Ethan sighed helplessly.
“Don’t be afraid. I’ll be keeping watch over you outside. Have a good rest, even if it’s only for the
He didn’t dare to affect Olivia’s emotions too much. After speaking a few words of comfort, he left.
Cody stood upright in the yard. She must have been waiting there for a while.
When she saw Ethan coming out, she stepped aside respectfully. She said in a small voice, “Mr.
Miller, I couldn’t say much just now with Mrs. Miller around. I would like to talk with you. It’s about
“Come with me.”
