After a long time, Elizabeth sighed softly in her heart.
It was okay if he didn’t know, saving the two of them from embarrassment.
They could just treat everything as a deal, and each took what they needed.
Thinking of this, Elizabeth pushed Max away, who was close at hand, and said calmly, “Anyway, it can’t be
Hearing this, Max frowned.
“What do you mean it can’t be me? Is there someone who knows you better than me? Who is it?”
Max didn’t notice that his voice became higher because of her words.
Elizabeth didn’t answer.
Seeing that she was ignoring him, Max stretched out his hand to hold her shoulder and asked viciously, “Is it
a man or a woman?”
He pinched her shoulders a little too hard.
Elizabeth frowned and pushed him. “It hurts. Don’t touch me.”
Seeing this, Max relaxed his strength a bit, but he didn’t give up asking because of this.
“It’s okay not to touch you. Let’s make it clear. Who is the person who knows you better? And what was the
Elizabeth felt reluctant to be entangled by him, and she could only say, “No one knows me, and only I know myself. I just said it casually, okay? As for the report, I don’t know what you are talking about. Is it from the company or somewhere? You have to make it clear before I can answer you, right?”
She took the initiative to express doubts, causing Max to narrow his eyes.
The more she acted like this, the more suspicious it was.
“The maid said that she found a report when she was cleaning the trash.”
Elizabeth met his eyes calmly, “What report? Where is it?”
“It was torn up. She found it in our room. It is not yours?”
Elizabeth said, “Torn up? I remembered. It’s mine.”
After finishing speaking, she avoided Max’s eyes and turned her gaze back to the screen. “That is the report
given to me by the hospital, so what’s wrong?”

Max’s eyes fixed on her. “What report did the hospital give you?”
Elizabeth’s face remained unchanged. “Physical examination report. What’s wrong with it?”
This answer made Max give a low snort.
“Do you think I’m stupid? What medical report needs to be torn up?”
He asked the poignant question.
After asking, Max grabbed Elizabeth’s, slender wrist, “Is there something you are hiding from me? That report.
What kind of report is it?”
Her abnormality should be related to this report.
The strength in his hand became stronger for no reason. Elizabeth frowned and explained softly, “I didn’t mean to tear it up, but the report was soaked because of the rain, and the writing on it was unclear, so I
threw it away.”
“Do you need to tear it up before throwing it away?” Max was still focused on this behavior. It was obvious that if she didn’t give him a reason to make him believe her today, he would keep asking.
Elizabeth met his gaze.
His eyes were dark and heavy.
She sighed and explained again, “Have you ever thought about it that I didn’t tear it up at all?”
Max suddenly asked, “What?”
“It rained heavily that day. When I took out the report, it was rotten and stuck to my clothes, so I had to take it
out piece by piece.”
Hearing this, Max froze.
He pictured what she was talking about in his mind.
It was indeed possible.
The rain was so heavy that she was all wet, and the paper must have been rotten. She could only take it out piece by piece and throw it in the bin. When the maid went to clean it up, the paper was dry, and it was in a
state of shredded paper.
It seemed that there was nothing wrong.
Elizabeth felt his hand gradually loosen a little and knew that this statement was accepted by him.
While heaving a sigh of relief, Elizabeth decided to take the risk and completely dispel his doubts in the
future, no matter whether he suspected that she was pregnant or not..
Thinking of this, Elizabeth stared at him and said quietly, “Why are you so nervous? Are you afraid that what I
got is a pregnancy report?”

Max wanted to deny it, but when he heard the words she said, his breathing became heavy.
After that, he looked at her with a certain emotion hidden in his eyes.
Elizabeth raised her eyebrows. “Why do you look at me like this? Are you afraid that my pregnancy will affect you and Becky?”
Max narrowed his eyes. “Are you pregnant?”
Elizabeth shrugged. “No. Otherwise, I would have shown you the report earlier. According to our relationship, if I get an abortion, you should give me a lot of compensation, right?”
Her brisk tone and indifferent attitude made Max’s face change slightly.
“What did you say?”
“Are you going to get the abortion?”
The last sentence made Elizabeth’s heart skip a beat.
“I mean hypothetically speaking.”
Someone seemed to decide to go against her today, “What if I don’t?”
“What do you mean if you don’t?” Elizabeth frowned slightly.
Max narrowed his eyes to look at her, and there were some incomprehensible emotions in his dark eyes. “If you are really pregnant, will you get an abortion?”
Elizabeth nodded subconsciously and lowered her eyes.
She didn’t notice Max’s handsome face turned gloomy when she said this.
Max was quite annoyed by her indifferent attitude. Something seemed to be churning in his heart, and he
was densely surrounded by anxious emotions.
But soon, the next sentence Elizabeth said brought him back to reality in an instant.
“If I don’t do it, what about you and Becky?”
What about you and Becky?
This sentence made Max sober up a lot, like pouring a basket of cold water on his head.
He looked at the woman in front of him, who was snow-skinned and had red lips. Even with a plain face, she was exquisite and pretty, so eye-catching that people couldn’t take their eyes off her.
After looking at her for a moment, the emotion in Max’s eyes faded. He stood up and obviously had already calmed down.
His voice was cold, completely different from just now. “You don’t have to go to the company today. Take a good rest.”

Max turned and left the bedroom with a cold expression on his face.
Elizabeth was right.
Even if she was really pregnant one day, she could only get an abortion.
He couldn’t let Becky down.
And he wouldn’t let Becky down
Back then, he stumbled and fell into the water, and the river was so fast that even a person who could swim would be hard to survive in it, let alone jump down to save others.
He swallowed several mouthfuls of water, his limbs were heavy, and his consciousness was about to disappear. When he was getting desperate, he saw a slender figure jumping in recklessly and swimming
towards him at high speed.
It was a pity that he lost consciousness before she swam close.
When he woke up, he was already in the hospital, and only then did he hear that Becky was injured because of saving him, and her hands were scratched with many wounds by the stones at the bottom of the river.
When he visited her, Becky was sitting on the edge of the bed with a pale face. The wound on her hands had been treated and was wrapped in gauze.
As soon as Becky saw him, she immediately got out of bed, stumbled towards him, and asked him if he was
From that moment on, Max decided to treat her well.
As long as she was willing, the position of Mrs. Hart beside him would always be reserved for her.
She was willing to risk her life for him, and he had to pay her back.
