They moved to a safe place. After making sure that Olivia wouldn’t hear them, Ethan began talking.
“Is there something wrong with the children?”
He had taken out a cigarette, but he didn’t light it. There was a gloomy expression on his face.
“Oh, no. Don’t worry, Mr. Miller. The children are safe. I just wanted to remind you that Mrs. Miller has a record of heavy bleeding.
“Also, her uterine lining is relatively thin, so she is prone to miscarriages.”
Seeing that Ethan hadn’t said anything, the doctor continued.
“Pregnant women’s emotions are very important as well. Mr. Miller, make sure to take good care of
“Avoid stimulating her during her pregnancy. If not, when her body gets stressed, it might harm the pregnancy. If that happens, then Mrs. Miller …”
Cody glanced at Ethan carefully. The cigarette in Ethan’s hand was already bent out of shape. He said in a low voice, “Go on.”
“Mrs. Miller is pregnant with twins. So, her pregnancy will be much more difficult compared to that of a normal pregnant woman. Miscarriages will also cause her great damage.
“In serious cases, it might even threaten her life.”
Ethan replied, “I know. I’m counting on your team to look after her body while she’s pregnant.”
“Don’t worry, Mr. Miller. We’ll keep watch over Mrs. Miller and make sure she gives birth to the children in one piece.”
After Cody left, Ethan sat on the stone steps, gazing into the distance.
The doctor’s intention was simple. Olivia was like a fragile doll right now. She would break into pieces
as soon as anything happened.
There were only a few months left. He had to be vigilant and prevent anything from happening again.
The dawn broke when he received news from Brent.
“Mr. Miller, I’m done with the matter you wanted me to investigate.”
Brent handed him a stack of documents. They were the overviews of the children in the Fordham family.
“Mr. Fordham Senior and Madam Fordham get along well together.
“They have six children in total, four males and two females. The corpse was the fifth child, and there
was a sixth child after her.
“The second child’s family had two children in total. The third child’s family isn’t big, either.
“I’ve asked someone to investigate in detail. There was never a missing or dead child in the Fordhams.
Ethan rubbed between his eyebrows, fatigued. “I was probably overthinking it.”
“Don’t be too hasty, Mr. Miller. It has been 20 years, after all.
“Also, if someone had done it on purpose and destroyed the evidence, it’s normal not to figure it out right away.”
“Yeah.” Ethan looked up, asking, “How’s Jeff doing?”
Brent shook his head. “Not good, to be honest. The incident before had shocked him terribly, and his desire to survive wasn’t as strong as before.
“Now, the medical team is using various equipment and drugs to keep him alive.
“Mrs. Miller is the only fixation he has left. If he lets go of that, no miracle can save him anymore.”
Ethan ordered, “Tell them to do everything they can to keep Jeff alive.”
“Understood. We’re keeping it a secret from Mrs. Miller, but she still has a few months to go before
she gives birth. Mr. Fordham may not hold out that long.
“Force him to stay alive. Liv’s physical condition is too weak. So, she’s very prone to miscarriages, especially in the third trimester. If any accidents happen, she will be in danger.”
Ethan’s phone vibrated. Glancing at the incoming call notice, he answered it in annoyance. “What is
“Ethan, where are you? You left so suddenly yesterday, and you just ignored me. Are you with that woman again? I told you, she’s not worthy of you. You-”
“If you’ve had enough of playing around, I’ll get someone to send you home.”
“No way, Ethan. I want you to send me back.”
“I’m busy. Also, I’m saying this one last time. It doesn’t matter if I’m divorced or not. She is still your cousin-in-law. If you don’t respect her, you’re disrespecting me.
With that, Ethan hung up. He looked at Brent. “If she asks you about Liv’s whereabouts, keep your lips sealed.”
“Understood, Mr. Miller.”
