“Silvia, do you… really not love me?”
Neil’s low restrained voice rang out behind her, and he sounded fearful.
Silvia looked at him and said, “No. I’ve just been so busy with the company these past six months. Maybe I’ve ended up neglecting you a couple of times.”
Neil looked into her eyes as if he did not want to miss any of her emotions.
“Yes. You must be exhausted from your business trip. Let’s get some rest.
Neil finally released her. As he was about to leave, his phone rang.
His eyes shone with dissatisfaction when he saw that the caller ID read “Ada.” He canceled the
Silvia looked down and went upstairs.
After she lay in bed, she tried to get some shuteye, but she could not fall asleep.
The scene of Neil asking her whether she still loved him replayed in her mind, and she could not help but feel irritated.
She was sure that she had not fallen for anyone else, but she did not know how she felt about Neil either.
After all, she was fed up with Ada taking every chance to show up in their lives.
Whenever they went out for a meal, Ada would suddenly have a stomach ache and call Neil for help. However, Neil would just ask Curtis to check on her.
Whenever they visited Abalene in Harmony Yard, Ada would also suddenly visit with a bunch of gifts.
Even though Ada claimed that the baby would have no ties with the Remus Family, would Abalene be heartless enough to abandon it?
Whenever they planned to travel, Ada would get Melanie to stop them with various excuses.
The Remus Family owed Ada, but Silvia’s relationship with Neil was being affected.
She had no right to criticize the Remus Family or Neil for this, but Ada was like a thorn in her side.
It did not hurt, but she would occasionally be reminded that Ada was in their lives. She was sure that Ada’s presence would be more prominent in the future.
At that thought, Silvia buried her head in her pillow in annoyance and refused to dwell on it further.
Downstairs, Ada called Neil repeatedly, and he eventually answered.
“What is it?”
He sounded cold and irritated.
If the Remus Family did not owe her, he would not be seeing her again.
“Neil, I… I just got into a car accident…‘
“You should call the police, not me!” Neil said with a frown.
“You’re the only one I trust. My belly hurts so much. Will anything happen to the baby?”
Based on how flustered she sounded, it looked like she was really scared.
Neil contemplated for a moment before he got up and asked, “Where are you? I’ll head over there!”
He wanted to keep a distance from her, so he planned to use this opportunity to explain things to her.
Neil arrived at the site of the accident almost at the same time as the ambulance. By the time they sent Ada to the hospital and examined her, it was past 2 p.m.
The doctor handed the report to Neil. “Mr. Remus, Miss Pond isn’t injured. She’s just shocked, and the baby is fine.”
Neil nodded with a serious expression. “I understand.”
After the doctor left, Neil walked into Ada’s ward and placed the report on the table. He looked down at her and said, “This is the last time that I’m answering your calls and handling your business. The next time anything happens, call Curtis.”
