Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 140
“I’m reminding you again, mom! The only reason this didn’t get out of hand is because that officer’s face isn’t severely injured and it could be dealt with with money. But Fia’s mom… That’s not something that money can help!”
With that, Conrad left without looking back.
Beryl was completely stunned. So her son was really going to abandon her?
How brutal was he?!
“Eat some more, Fia.”
“Thank you, Evans.”
Fia chewed the tomato omelet and praised him. “You can cook so well. Whoever you marry is going to be so lucky!”
Jason frowned and wanted to say something, but he held it back.
After they were done eating, Fia cleaned up the plates and utensils while Jason washed the dishes.
The two of them worked together as they chatted, just like a pair of real siblings.
“Fia, I’m going to the hospital for work in the afternoon. Let’s go together.”
Jason looked at Fia anxiously.
Fia looked at the apartment and shook her head.
Jason gave it a thought and said, “You need to go for a pregnancy checkup.”
“It isn’t due for another month, right?”
“Your situation is a bit unique. You haven’t rested for a while. It’ll be safer if you check.”
Fia hesitated for a few seconds. But when she thought about the baby, she agreed.
Once they were at the hospital, Jason gave his colleague at the gynecology department a message.
Once it was Fia’s turn, the doctor looked at her name carefully.
“Who are you to Doctor Evans?”
She remembered that Doctor Evans hadn’t married yet and had no girlfriend.
She then asked, “Girlfriend?”
Fia gave her a smile and said, “Just normal friends.”
“Oh… peers from school?”
Fia smiled and didn’t reply. She felt that she was asking too many questions.
The doctor didn’t mind Fia distancing herself from her and simply gave her a document.
“Let’s start with this test.”
“What is this?” Fia looked at the title of the document and she felt appalled.
“Don’t worry. All future morns that come into our hospital need to do this test. This is so that we can make sure that they’ll have good emotional support and the babies can grow healthily.”
The doctor gave her a sincere smile.
Fia nodded and began to go through the test after she picked up a pen.
Half an hour later, the doctor looked at her test and frowned.
“Ms. Lawson, is your living environment a bit too volatile lately?”
The doctor carefully chose her words.
Fia directly said, “My grandma and my mom just passed away.”
The doctor suddenly remembered the rumor in the hospital. They said that the handsome Doctor Jason Evans had fallen in love with a patient’s daughter.
And it was said that she was the wife of a famous scion of a local household, the Maxwells.
“You’re the wife of Mr. Maxwell?”
The doctor was simply too curious.
“Yes,” Fia answered with her expression becoming cold. “How’s the result of the test?”
“I’m sorry. It wasn’t intentional.” The doctor smiled apologetically.
“From the looks of it, you have symptoms of mild depression. But don’t worry about it.”
Fia didn’t say a word as she looked down. The faces of Conrad and Esme popped up in her mind one after the other.
The doctor was worried that she might have triggered her, and said, “The cause might be because of you losing your loved ones. You have to adjust your emotional state for it to heal in time. Don’t worry. A lot of pregnant women have bad tempers. Once you have it under control, it’ll all be alright.”
“Really?” Fia asked coldly. “Why do I keep on reading about mothers committing suicide with their little babies in the news?”
“Huh? Well… This is related to how much pressure someone can take. My guess is that after they had their children, their relationship with their mothers–in–law was not the best and the difficulty of adapting to a mother’s life caused them to have an emotional breakdown. They only did it because they were forced into a corner.”
“Why didn’t anyone give them a hand?” Fia mumbled as if it was to herself. “If someone gave them a little bit of warmth before it got to that stage, they wouldn’t have taken that route, would they?”
