The next day.
Elizabeth found herself having a cold when she woke up. She took out the medicine from the drawer and poured a glass of warm water.
She remembered she was pregnant as long as she put the medicine into her mouth. Her expression changed, and she rushed to the bathroom to spit out the pill from her mouth.
She lay on the sink and rinsed her mouth, spitting out all the bitterness she felt in her mouth.
“What’s the matter? Why are you panicked? Are you uncomfortable?”
A clear male voice suddenly sounded at the door. Elizabeth was startled and looked back at him.
Max frowned and looked at her.
As soon as the eyes met, Elizabeth quickly looked away. She paused and said, “It’s nothing. I just took the wrong medicine.”
After speaking, she reached out to wipe off the water on her face, got up, and left the bathroom.
Max turned around and looked at her back thoughtfully.
He felt that she had been weird since she came back last night.
After breakfast, the couple went out together.
Max glanced at Elizabeth, whose face was slightly pale, and said, “Take my car?”
Elizabeth was drenched in the rain yesterday. She was really uncomfortable today. Just as she was about to
say yes, Max’s cell phone rang.
He lowered his head and glanced at the called identity. It was Becky. He just wanted to avoid Elizabeth, but she had consciously walked away.
Although the two were married, they did not get along. Elizabeth never paid attention to Max’s friends.
They all got used to it.
But today, Max felt a prick when he saw her avoiding him.
But the feeling was fleeting. He picked up the phone.
Elizabeth looked at him from a not-too-far away.
From his expression, she had already figured out who was calling him.
His expression was gentle. He had never been so soft to her.
She took a deep breath to suppress the envy in her heart. Then, she walked towards the garage while taking out her mobile phone.

Five minutes later.
After Max answered the phone, he turned to look for Elizabeth. She had long gone.
At the same time, he received a message.
“I have a lot of work today. I leave first.”
Max stared at the message, and his eyes darkened.
Elizabeth came to the company with a strong feeling of discomfort. As soon as she entered the door, she sat on the office chair and lay her head on the desk.
Her head hurt.
However, she was pregnant. She couldn’t take medicine indiscriminately.
Honestly, she didn’t know what to do with the pregnancy. Their marriage was fake. Nobody would be happy for her pregnancy except for Grandma Hart.
Others did not welcome this child.
Before yesterday, she had thought that maybe Max would want the baby, and perhaps their marriage could
But after she found out that Becky had returned and his feeling for her was the same as before…
If he were to know, his first reaction would probably be to ask her to abort it in case it would influence his
relationship with Becky.
Her mind told her that she should abort the baby immediately. Otherwise, she might lose all her dignity in the
A soft female voice sounded. Elizabeth returned to her senses, raised her head, and saw Kiera Lynn, her
Elizabeth sat up straight and showed her a warm smile.
Kiera didn’t smile but looked at her worriedly.
“You look so pale. Are you alright?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth was startled and shook her head.
“I’m fine. I just didn’t sleep well last night.”

“Really?” Kiera didn’t quite believe it, “But your face is ashen. Are you really okay? Why don’t you take sick leave and go to the hospital for a check?”
“I’m fine. Did you finish the summary work yesterday?”
Elizabeth didn’t want to talk about her privacy. Kiera had nothing to do with it. She had to bring over the documents she had sorted out and then poured Elizabeth a cup of hot water.
“Have some water. You will feel better.”
Elizabeth recruited Kiera as her assistant. She was a lovely girl and worked very diligently. But Elizabeth and
she had no personal contact other than work..
Elizabeth didn’t expect that she actually cared about her.
She was touched and drank a few mouthfuls of hot water.
She had felt slightly cold before. But after drinking some hot water, Elizabeth finally felt much more
Kiera still looked at her worriedly.
“Why don’t you let me do today’s report? You can rest for a while.”
Elizabeth shook her head, “No, I can do it myself.”
She was only slightly uncomfortable. It was not a big deal.
If she let others do her work whenever she felt uncomfortable, she would be lazy and weak.
She didn’t like herself being that way.
What if no one helped her when she felt unwell in the future? She only relied on herself.
Elizabeth sorted out the reports. She got up and went to Max’s office.
Her office was a little far away from Max’s. Usually, the distance was okay for her. But maybe because she
felt unwell today, Elizabeth was tired from walking.
A cold and deep male voice came from inside the door. Elizabeth pushed the door open.
Max was not alone in the office. There was another person in there.
A tight white dress outlined Becky’s slender waist. Her waist-length hair hung softly on her back. In the sunlight from the floor-to-ceiling windows, she looked delicate and agile.
Elizabeth didn’t expect Becky would be there. She froze.

Becky walked towards her with a smile. Before Elizabeth could react, she leaned over and hugged her. Elizabeth’s body became even stiffer. Her eyes looked over Becky’s shoulders, meeting Max’s dark eyes.
He was leaning against the desk, looking at her intensely. Elizabeth was wondering what he was thinking.
Elizabeth was still stunned. Becky had already retreated.
“I’ve heard Max say everything about you. I’m sorry for you.” Becky showed a distressed look on her face, “If you need any help, you must tell me.”
What did she mean? Elizabeth stunned. What did Max tell her?
But she figured it out quickly.
Their marriage was eye-catching. She must have heard about it.
Max must have explained all details to her.
What’s more, Becky once did her a great favor.
Elizabeth concealed the bitterness in her heart and smiled at Becky.
“Thank you. When did you come back?”
In other words, Max went to see her as soon as she came back.
Sure enough. She was his true love.
“By the way, you look so pale. Are you feeling okay?” Becky asked concernedly.
Hearing this, Max, leaning against the table casually, raised his eyes to look at Elizabeth. After careful observation, his brows furrowed.
“Is it because you got caught in the rain last night?”
“The rain?” Becky showed a puzzled expression.
Elizabeth sighed and was about to explain, but Max interrupted her, “Why did you come to the office today? The company won’t shut down because of you. Go back and rest.”
Hearing this, Becky subconsciously glanced at Max.
Why did he suddenly get angry?
