Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 171
“Let’s go together right now, alright?”
Esme was thinking that by doing the dinner tonight, she would be able to worsen the friction between him and Fia!
However, she didn’t expect Conrad to refuse. “Not today.”
“Why not today, Conrad? You don’t want to be cut off from me, do you? Is it because Fia forces you?”
“She’s not like that. Fia’s been admitted and I need to take care of her.”
Esme was stunned. When she saw that he was going to leave, she yelled, “Who’s going to take care of me?!”
“She’s my wife. I have the duty to take care of her. As for you, I’ll call someone from your household to have them take care of you.” With that Conrad left without any hesitation.
Fia opened her eyes and choked on her own blood.
“Here, spit it here.”
Conrad helped her up with one hand while holding the bin with the other.
Fia looked at him with calm eyes and spat into the bin.
Her education made her instinctively thank him.
“I’m your husband. I’m simply doing what I should.”
Fia lay back down on the bed and didn’t want to talk to him.
And she was too lazy to ask him why he was not with Esme but with her.
She was wondering what happened to her.
She remembered not being able to breathe when she was in the apartment and how she was admitted to the hospital when all she could feel was coldness. She had been conscious of it all, but her entire body had been wracked in pain.
She wasn’t injured, but the choking and helplessness, and pain… all made her suffer. She then bit her tongue. Thinking that it could divert the pain from her mind away.
Afterward, Jason and Sally fed something to her. She was like a fish on land being thrown back into the water. She instantly lost consciousness.
Conrad looked at her as he sat by her bed. When he saw her dispassionate expression, he tried to be as gentle as possible.
“I already told Esme that I’m cutting her off.”
Fia was still expressionless and all he could see was her back.
She didn’t care what they talked about. The moment that Esme appeared, he would become a dog and wag his tail at her anyway.
“I’m not lying to you! All I want is to protect our marriage.”
Fia blinked and decided to close her eyes.
Conrad looked at her and saw that she was already asleep, and thus gave up on communicating with her.
As he sat by her side, he would use his phone to log into his email to deal with all the documents inside.
After about one hour had passed, he walked out of the ward.
Fia immediately opened her eyes and walked out of the ward too.
She went to look for Jason. When Jason came back from his rounds and saw her walking into his office, he quickly poured a glass of warm water for her.
“You’re pregnant, so tea and coffee aren’t suitable for you. Have some water.”
“Thanks.” Fia grabbed the glass of water tightly.
“Have a seat.”
Once she sat down, she lowered her head and thought about how to build up the conversation.
She slowly opened her mouth and said, “Evans, I want to thank you and Doctor Hall.”
“We’re doctors. We’re only doing what we should.” Jason looked at her black eyes and said, “Fia, rest well. Don’t let anyone get in the way of that.”
Fia nervously raised her head and looked at him.
“Evans, what’s… What’s happening to me?”
