Before Rose finished speaking, a familiar figure suddenly left the consulting room behind her.
When Rose heard the girl’s tender and childish voice, her complacent and mean face suddenly changed
Elizabeth followed the voice and recognized Rose’s daughter Laura at a glance.
Laura was holding a checkup list in her hand with a pale face and lips. She didn’t look well. Before Elizabeth reacted, Rose stopped ridiculing her and turned to pull Laura away.
From her hasty footsteps, Elizabeth guessed what had happened.
However, Elizabeth had never intended to poison other people’s private affairs, so she didn’t take it to heart.
After a while, Rose came back alone. She might have placed her daughter in another place.
Rose went up to Elizabeth again with a mean expression that didn’t match her well-maintained face.
“Ms. Blaine, if you’re sensible, you should kno

that some things cannot be said.”
Elizabeth gave a faint smile and ran her fingers through the hair on her, saying softly, “Mrs. Cartel, that depends on if I can have my way. If someone upsets me, I might go insane and say something out of my
Everyone knew why those girls came to this hospital.
Rose’s exquisite face abruptly contorted with anger.
“Elizabeth, you dare to threaten me!”
“I don’t dare to do that. It’s just an exchange.”
Rose gritted her teeth and glared at Elizabeth. “Your trouble is much bigger than Laura’s.”
“Really?” Elizabeth said lightly, “Are you sure? If I remember correctly, your daughter hasn’t gone to college.
That hit home.
Rose looked at Elizabeth and wished to tear her delicate and beautiful face.
Rose thought she got the breaking news which could turn the Hart family upside down. She had been jealous
of Melissa for a long time.
Why was Melissa better than her in everything?
But Rose didn’t expect her daughter to come out at a critical moment and ruin her plan.

She felt irritated when Elizabeth saw Rose standing there and glaring at her with gritting teeth. Coupled with the exhaustion of the past few days, she was weary of dealing with Rose, so she said bluntly, “If you disagree, you can spread this. I won’t be alone with your daughter.”
Elizabeth closed her eyes and said coldly, “I’m tired. Mrs. Cartel, please mind your own business.”
She didn’t bother to care about Rose’s reaction. She might be fuming or gritting her teeth. Elizabeth didn’t
care about that anymore.
A few seconds later, Rose left angrily.
Hearing Rose leave, Elizabeth breathed a sigh of relief.
In fact, she said those words to scare Rose.
If Rose revealed her secret, Elizabeth couldn’t bring herself to spread the scandal about Laura.
Girls at Laura’s age were ignorant about love. Many of them were not firm and didn’t have a clear concept of
their future, so they were gullible.
Moreover, there was no other choice at their age. They could only solve it this way.
Laura had been hurt, and Elizabeth would not hurt her again.
Two minutes later, Megan came back.
“I bought sandwiches, oat milk, and some candies. There are very few things in the convenience store. Let’s
make do with it.”
As Megan spoke, she unwrapped the package and handed the food to Elizabeth.
“Hurry up. Don’t starve yourself.”
Elizabeth looked at Megan with a warm smile in her eyes.
To some extent, Megan cared about Elizabeth even more than her mother.
“Don’t mention it.”
As expected, Megan glared at Elizabeth. “Why do you thank me? We’re so close. Shouldn’t I thank you? I might not have gone to college if it weren’t for you.”
Elizabeth smiled and said nothing.
She met Megan in high school, and they hit it off right away and became best friends. Coincidentally, they were admitted to the same university.
During that holiday, Megan’s father was out of his mind for some reason and went to gamble, ending up in debt. All the debtors went to Megan’s home. With tears in her eyes, Megan was going to drop out of school

and go to work to pay off the debts.
After Elizabeth knew about it, she repaid the debt for Megan and took her to school in person.
When Elizabeth thought about this, Megan was also thinking of the past.
When Megan returned to her senses, she said to Elizabeth, “You know what? I am very grateful to you for that. Without you, I don’t know where I should have been. I might have been forced to death by the debtors. You are not only my best friend, but also my savior, and I will never forget about it in my life.”
Elizabeth was delighted to hear Megan say that.
However, when she heard Megan say she would never forget, Elizabeth thought of Max.
Did he have the same thoughts as Mégan and would never forget Becky in his life?
Thinking of this, Elizabeth looked at Megan and asked, “If I were a man, would you marry me?”
Megan overlooked the deep meaning of the question and replied quickly, “Sweetie, what are you talking about? Of course, I will. If you were a man, I would definitely chase after you. Unfortunately, you are a woman, so I can only be your good friend.”
Elizabeth thought, “I see.” She looked down, the light in her eyes was fading.
She said to herself, “So Max also thinks so.”
Everyone had a good impression of the person who helped him, let alone the person who saved his life.
“What’s wrong?” Megan became nervous when she saw Elizabeth in a bad mood. After asking, she suddenly thought of something, and her expression changed drastically.
“Sweetie, I’m sorry baby. I didn’t mean that!”
As Elizabeth’s good friend, how could Megan not know about Max and Becky’s past? She spoke ill of them
“How can you confuse the life-saving gratitude with love between a man and a woman? It’s absurd.”
Megan said it from the bottom of her heart.
When Elizabeth asked this question just now, she answered without overthinking.
Megan could only desperately explain, “Sweetie, don’t think too much. I said that because I think you are a good person, so I said that if you were a man, I would want to marry you, but…”
Elizabeth nodded melancholy. “He probably also thinks that Becky is a very good person.”
Megan was speechless.
She felt awful.
She was making things worse.
