The data she got had indeed changed, which showed her feeling was right.
Elizabeth answered, and didn’t say anything more, just took the data back, folded it up and put it away.
After finishing it, she remembered something and said to Max, “Actually, I feel that grandma is afraid of having the operation. In the afternoon, you shouldn’t tell her that the operation will be brought forward.”
Hearing this, Max was startled.
“Are you sure?”
He looked over at her, saw the extremely serious expression on her face, and suddenly realized that what she said in the nursing home before was true.
She said that she didn’t care about grandma because of him.
She really meant it.
She really regarded Grandma Hart as her own grandma.
Thinking of this, Max pouted, “Okay, I understand. I will comfort her later.”
Because of bringing up the issue of grandma, there was a rare peace between the two.
But after the topic about grandma ended, the two fell into silence again.
The driver was driving the car in front, feeling extremely surprised.
When they got into the car, the atmosphere was so stiff that it seemed that they were going to have a fierce quarrel in the next
But not only did they not quarrel, but they also discussed Madam Hart’s illness friendly.
The driver was still sighing in his heart when the couple was really sweet, and the two of them stopped talking. The atmosphere between the two of them froze back, returning to the coldness before.
The driver said nothing.
He didn’t understand it, he’d better concentrate on driving his own car.
Arriving at the Hart family.
Elizabeth got out of the car before Max. After getting off, she walked directly upstairs, her pace was not fast, but it was definitely not slow. She left Max behind in a short while.
The servant saw Elizabeth come in expressionlessly.
Not long after she went upstairs, Max came in with a dark face and went upstairs as well.
Ever since Elizabeth came back from the rain that day, the atmosphere in the house seemed to have become very strange. The
servants started to work more calmly and harder.
They were afraid that if they didn’t handle things properly, they would be fired.
After both of them went upstairs, the servants couldn’t help getting together to discuss.
“Looking at them, it should not be far from divorce, right?”
“What are you talking about? They probably had an argument, but it’s not a divorce, right?”
“Didn’t you listen to what they said that day? They were just married in a fake way. Mr. Hart has someone he likes. Now the person he likes is back. If he doesn’t want a divorce, how can Mr. Hart marry the one he likes?”
“That’s right. But they’ve been married for so long, so there must be some feelings, right? You see how good the relationship between them is. Anyway, I don’t think it’s possible for them to divorce.”
“Then I’ll bet that they will definitely divorce. Just watch, they will divorce this month or next month.”
A group of people divided into two factions, seriously discussing the marriage belonging to the two.
After returning to the room, Elizabeth went to wash up.
In fact, she was much calmer now.
On the way back, she kept thinking about it.
Grandma’s surgery was coming soon, so there was no need for her to get emotional with Max at this time.
He had long said that it was a fake marriage. If divorce was inevitable, it would be normal for him to have something to do with Becky.
But what Elizabeth didn’t understand the most was that he told Becky that she was pregnant.
She was so confusing, so irritating.
But, she was the person he liked, so she was naturally sincere and unreserved.
So Elizabeth also understood now, but from her own point of view, she still couldn’t agree.
But no matter how hard it was to agree, she still had to pretend to be peaceful during this time.
Elizabeth came out after washing and saw Max lying on the sofa in the bedroom.
He was probably tired, took off his coat, and lay there with his eyes closed.
Hearing the movement, he opened his eyes and looked at Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was already looking at him. But when he stared at her like this, they looked at each other. And she immediately
looked away in embarrassment.
But Max didn’t care about it, and asked in a flat tone, “Did you finish washing?”
Then Elizabeth responded sullenly.
“Then I’ll go wash up too.”
After speaking, Max got up and went into the bathroom.
It was half an hour before he came out again.
Max wiped his wet hair with a dry towel as he walked outside. Suddenly, he stopped and looked at Elizabeth who was sleeping by the bed.
There was a pillow on her back, and she was holding a book in her hand. The desk lamp was on. She fell asleep quietly leaning against it, and the book only turned a few pages.
After watching for a while, Max threw away the towel in his hand and walked towards her.
After approaching, Max quietly looked at Elizabeth under the light. She had a pair of beautiful eyes, and when she was not smiling, she was clear and cold, like a cold spring accidentally found on the top of a snow mountain.
When she smiled, she was extraordinarily agile, like a sparkling lake on an autumn afternoon, dazzling and vivid.
Apart from these two amorous feelings, Max even saw a more attractive side of her. At that time, she had another amorous look in her eyes, which was enough to drive him crazy.
Max’s hand moved forward uncontrollably, and his fingertips lightly touched her brow bone, then gradually moved down, touching her eyelids.
The feeling moved along his fingertips to Max’s lower abdomen in an instant.
He pursed his thin lips, and his eyes became dark and deep.
Suddenly, the eyelids under his fingertips moved. Max immediately withdrew his hand, pretending nothing happened.
But before he had time to move, Elizabeth had already opened her eyes.
They looked at each other.
Max was speechless.
Elizabeth gave him a strange look, probably not noticing that he touched her with his fingertips just now. She asked, “What are you doing in front of me?”
Max said calmly, “See if you’re asleep.”
Speaking of this, Elizabeth really fell asleep just now. She was reading a book while Max was washing up, and waited for him to come out to negotiate. Unexpectedly, after reading only a few pages, she unconsciously fell asleep.
She used to hear that when women were pregnant, they would become sleepy. But Elizabeth didn’t believe it. Now it seemed
that it was probably true.
Thinking of this, Elizabeth coughed lightly.
“Well, maybe I’m too tired during the day.”
After finishing speaking, she closed the book and asked, “Have you finished washing?”
“Yes.” Max’s voice sounded muffled, and his dark eyes kept staring at her.
He was guessing her mind..
Her attitude seemed much better than during the day.
After thinking about it, he endured it. In the end, Max couldn’t hold back the desire in his heart, and asked, “Are you…”
“Still mad at me?”
“Max, let’s call a truce.”
The two spoke at the same time. Elizabeth’s words were short and fast, so Max was interrupted by her before he could say the
“A truce?” He didn’t quite understand what she meant.
