“How could you?!”
Jake glared at her and responded angrily, “Enough! The most important thing now is to
convince Liam that we have nothing to do with his parents‘ accident. We can talk about other things later on!”
Melanie sneered. “Is Liam willing to listen to you? He almost killed me. I’ll never let this go!”
“Do you really want to ruin this family?”
As he questioned her, Melanie met his gaze in a calm and cold manner. “You should ask Liam that. If it weren’t for him, our lives wouldn’t be a mess now!”
Jake gritted his teeth with rage. He raised his hand to slap her, but to his surprise, she showed no fear. Instead, she stared him right in the eye.
“Go ahead and hit me! If you do, I’ll expose what you did to Beatrice to the media. It’s up to you. Do you still want to keep your reputation?”
Jake’s hand froze in mid–air, and he ended up not hitting her.
“You’ll be in trouble if I hear any rumors about it!”
After that, he left in a huff. The moment he opened the door, he saw Ada. He was immediately displeased.
“How much did you hear?”
His gaze made her shudder. She quickly took a step back and shook her head with a pale face.” I just arrived. I didn’t hear anything.”
Jake did not pressure her any further when he noticed that she seemed to be telling the truth.
He left soon after.
Ada patted her chest out of fear. She took a deep breath before she walked into the hospital
Melanie was a little surprised to see Ada. “Why are you here?” she asked indifferently.
Ever since Ada became pregnant with Liam’s child, Melanie had distanced herself from her.
After all, Liam stood against Neil. Despite how much Ada liked Neil before, she would definitely pick Liam’s side after having his child.
Ada smiled and sat by the hospital bed.
“I heard that you woke up, so I came over to visit you. How are you?”
“I’m good. Ada, since you’re engaged to Liam and pregnant with his child, you don’t have to visit me in the future. You should stay at home and take care of yourself.”
Ada knew that Melanie was trying to keep a distance from her. However, she wanted to escape Liam’s control and get back together with Neil. Therefore, she needed to get Melanie on her side.
“I came here because I have something to tell you.”
“What is it?”
“I don’t plan on keeping this child.”
Melanie was taken aback. She frowned and asked, “Why?”
Ada sighed, and her eyes turned red.
“You don’t know this, but Liam doesn’t like me at all. After he became the president of Remus Corporation, he locked me up in the mansion. I’ve been trying to send information to Neil. I still wish for him to be reinstated as Remus Corporation’s president.”
Ada meant everything she said, but Melanie did not believe her. Instead, she looked at Ada with a guarded look on her face.
“Did Liam ask you to get information from me?”
Ada did not rush to defend herself. “I know that you don’t believe me now. But soon, you’ll know that I’m not lying to you,” she whispered.
After that, she stood up and looked at Melanie. “Liam has assigned someone to keep an eye on me. I can’t leave the mansion for too long. I’ll visit you again if I get the chance.”
She wiped her tears once she exited the ward. She was just about to leave, when she saw a familiar figure on the other end of the corridor. This person was walking briskly toward another ward.
Why would Dulcie be here?
Out of curiosity, Ada secretly followed her.
