Elizabeth subconsciously denied it.
Then she asked, “Who told you that?”
Hearing this, Max narrowed his eyes and said, “You didn’t? Then why do you still care who I heard it from?”
“Well,” Elizabeth said disapprovingly, “I just want to know who is so capable of spreading rumors, Alex, or Ryan? Ryan did call me, saying that you were drunk, and asked me to take home. But he just hung up the phone before I could refuse.”
Max frowned, watching her speak calmly.
“I was going to ask Lincoln to pick you up, but he is getting old, and I didn’t want to wake him up late at night. Thinking that Ryan and Alex were both there with you, and they would naturally take care of you, I didn’t think you need to me to get you home.”
What she said sounded perfect, and there seemed to be no problem.
“So after I figured it out, I just went to bed.”
After Elizabeth said that, she stared at Max and asked, “Who told you that I went to find you? I should thank him for setting up such a good persona for me.
Max was speechless.
However, Elizabeth continued, “By the way, don’t your two friends know about our trading relationship? Did they cover for me after I didn’t go for fear that we would quarrel?”
Elizabeth felt the hands holding hers get tighter and tighter, and it almost crushed her
She endured the pain and chuckled, “Tell them about that next time. I don’t like them calling me after you drink too much. You know that I go to bed early, and if I am woken
Before Elizabeth could finish her words, Max couldn’t bear it anymore and shook off her hand. He just strode away with a sullen face.
After Max left, Elizabeth was left alone in the corridor.
She lowered her eyes and looked at her hands that were clamped just now. After thinking for a long time, Elizabeth didn’t go back to the bathroom to wash her hands.
That was not important.
Since it was just a deal, she had to be mentally prepared at all times. After all, she had to visit Grandma
Very week, and she couldn’t just wash her hands like that every time she
After adjusting her mentality, Elizabeth also turned and left.
“Madam Hart’s condition is recovering faster than I imagined. If the current order continues, she can take the surgery earlier.”
As soon as Elizabeth walked to the door of the consulting room, she heard what the
doctor said to Max.
“How much earlier can it be?” Max asked.
Hearing that, Elizabeth didn’t go in, but leaned against the wall.
“It depends on her current situation. If Madam Hart can maintain it, the surgery can be
half a month earlier.”
“Don’t mention it, Mr. Hart. It’s our honor that you can trust us.”
Hearing those nonsense, Elizabeth went back to find Madam Hart in advance.
When Elizabeth was about to walk to the door, she ran into the paramedic she saw in
“Mrs. Hart, you are here. I got the data and was looking for you.”
Elizabeth didn’t forget that, so she nodded to her.
“How is it going?”
“Please come with me.”
Hearing that, Elizabeth paused, and then followed up.
The paramedic led her into another room, and then turned on the computer in front of
“We have recorded all of Madam Hart’s diet and sleep data. When I asked them in the morning, they all said that this slight change is actually within the normal range, so they didn’t pay special attention.”
Elizabeth bent over to look at the data on the computer screen.
The records of Madam Hart’s every day’s diet and sleep were very clear. There were so many patients in the sanatorium, it was impossible for the paramedic to remember everyone’s diet and living habits in detail.
So to better distinguished these, they had kept them records.
Elizabeth checked it carefully and found that it was indeed as the paramedic said. The changes were very subtle and negligible.
Generally, they had a range. If the data didn’t exceed the range, it should be considered
Elizabeth pursed her lips and felt a little uneasy.
Maybe she just thought too much.
She could feel Grandma’s mood have changed, but not in a good way.
“Mrs. Hart, I understand that you care about Madam Hart, but… Maybe you just think
Hearing that, Elizabeth didn’t argue with her and even followed her words, “Yeah,
maybe I think too much.”
She had always spoken properly. Seeing Elizabeth say that, the paramedic didn’t say anything.
Elizabeth smiled slightly at her and said, “But can you do me a favor? Please print out the data during this period for me.”
The paramedic froze for a moment and then nodded, “Sure.”
“You don’t have to, Mrs. Hart.”
Although the paramedic was surprised by Elizabeth’s request, she did it quickly.
Elizabeth watched her operate from the side. Thinking of something, she said, “I’ll pick it up before I leave, can you keep it with you first?”
“Okay, Mrs. Hart.”
After that, Elizabeth left and went back to find Madam Hart.
When she went back, Max was already talking with Madam Hart in the room.
He sat in front of her with a faint smile on his face, and warmth in his eyes.
Max was very filial, and Elizabeth always knew that.
“Elizabeth, you’re back.”
“Grandma,” Elizabeth walked over and joined in the conversation.
The smile in Max’s eyes faded a bit, but soon his expression returned to normal.
Afterwards, they seemed to abandon all the unhappiness that happened outside before, and became extremely affectionate in front of Madam Hart, as if they were a newly married couple.
It was getting dark soon.
“Okay, it’s getting late. You should go home now.
Elizabeth thought of something and shook her head.
“Grandma, it’s still early. I want to stay with you for a little longer.”
“Early? It will take time for you to go home. And it will be very late when
“It’s okay, Grandma. I’ve taken my annual leave these days, and I’m free.”
“You are on annual leave?”
“Yeah,” Elizabeth nodded, “So for the next few days, I’ll come here every day. You can’t be bored with me.”
Hearing that she would come here every day, there was a flash of surprise in Madam Hart’s eyes. However, after a while, the light in her eyes disappeared.
She said helplessly, “Forget it. Don’t come here every day. This sanatorium is full of patients. It’s not good for you to stay here for too long.”
When Elizabeth heard what Madam said, she paused.
Before she could answer, Max said, “What are you talking about, Grandma? You’re not a patient. The doctor said that you are in good condition now, and you can have the surgery half a month in advance. And we will take you home after the surgery.”
