Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 232
Fia looked at Conrad speechlessly. “So what if he’s good in the medical field? What does that have to do with you?”
“Don’t you think you’re focused on the wrong thing?”
After Fia complained, Conrad calmed down and changed the topic of the conversation. “O negative is a very rare blood type. I never expected Ms. Reid to share the same blood type as me.”
“What? Are you the only one allowed to have this blood type? No one else can have it?” Fia gave him a cold glance. “Don’t be so tyrannical and selfish.”
“I’m just curious.” Conrad massaged the center of his forehead. “Where are Ms. Reid’s parents from?”
“Eileen’s parents passed away in an airplane accident when she was still in elementary school. She grew up not having a permanent home.” When Fia thought about Eileen’s experience growing up, she could only feel pain.
Conrad was quiet for two seconds before saying, “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have asked.”
“If you’re really sorry, don’t be so aggressive toward her from now on.”
Fia didn’t expect him to agree with her so easily, and so she glanced at him.
“Can you go and see if Eileen’s woken up?”
“I’ll carry you there.”
Conrad saw the light glimmering in her eyes and he secretly smiled as he went to carry her.
He had just left the ward with Fia in his arms when they ran into Jason.
Jason hadn’t had the chance to remove the surgery garb that he was wearing, and there were blood stains all over him. There was also sweat on his forehead. He paused for a moment and ignored Conrad carrying Fia like a princess.
“I’ve arranged for Ms. Reid’s room to be right next to yours. You two can take care of each other better that way.”
He then turned and walked while Conrad followed him with Fia stül in his arms.
Fia thanked Jason with a gentle voice while he merely waved his hand. “It’s a small matter.
“She’s still asleep. Be gentle when you visit her. Let me know if there’s anything. I have something else to take care of now.” Jason turned and left, not wanting to see how close Conrad and Fia were.
In the ward, Victor was by the bedside, exhausted. He looked at Eileen as she breathed with the help of at respirator, the fire in his eyes dimmed.
Fia knocked on the door and squeezed Conrad’s arm. “Bring me in.”
Victor turned and looked, then he continued to look at Eileen.
Conrad held Fia and sat on the other side of the bed. He looked at Victor with a silent sneer.
Fia said, “You remember what you promised just now?”
Victor frowned. “We’ll wait until she wakes up.”
“You want to break your promise?” Fia’s words were sharp. “If this can happen the first time, it can happen a second time.”
When Fia saw the bandaged wound on Eileen’s neck, Fia could imagine the moment she decided to do it to herself.
A woman would never do that unless the pain was too much to bear and she had nowhere else to run.
“It’s the major artery in her neck. She’didn’t just ram her head into the wall or jump off a building. This could only end in death if anything went wrong.”
When Conrad listened to Fia, he felt that her words were directed at him.
“Victor…” Fia’s voice was trembling as she looked at Victor. “You’re born with a silver spoon. You don’t know how Eileen managed to survive step by step. She grew up without parents and had to survive on others‘ charity. She had been despised by so many people.
“Even after a life of poverty and sorrow, she never gave up on her own dignity. But what you’re doing is forcing her to break her own self–worth apart.
“Let her go. You chose Sapphire, so please let her go.
Victor tightened his fists and looked at Eileen. “Even if I was born with a silver spoon, it doesn’t mean that everything comes to me easily. My grandfather was never happy with my dad. The entire household looked down on my dad and me. Even if Conrad’s dad had completely disgraced the household, our grandfather never considered me and my father to be his heir. He chose Conrad without even considering both of us.”
Fia was taken aback. That was the first time she was hearing about it.
