Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 247
“I’m fine,” Conrad said as he stood there. But no matter what he did, his expression was still somewhat
“If you caught a cold, there won’t be anyone to take care of me,” Fia said softly.
Conrad frowned and took the clothes and the towel before going into the washroom once again.
He came out after a short while, dry and clean. “Let’s eat.”
Fia gave him a look before handing him a bowl of soup.
Conrad was stunned before he happily accepted it. “Thanks.”
Ever since they’d both been admitted to the hospital, this was the first time she prepared a bowl of soup
Mrs. Taylor couldn’t help but smile.
“Master Maxwell, now that the madam is pregnant, you need to treat her better. You can’t hurt her for someone that’s not worthy of you anymore.”
“Madam, have you noticed that the master has been treating you better? Better than…”
“No,” Fia said plainly when she glanced at Conrad. “He would always treat someone else better.”
And that was how she killed the conversation..
No one said anything anymore. After they were done eating, Mrs. Taylor packed up and left.
Conrad wiped his hand on his pants while he carefully looked at Fia, who was reading a book with her back against the headboard.
“The weather is quite cloudy today. It’s windy too, so it’s not that hot.”
“And?” Fia moved the book away and looked at him with an eyebrow raised.
“Do you want to take a walk down there?”
Conrad’s eyes shifted around and he didn’t dare to look at Fia.
At that moment, Fia could sense how careful he was being.
He was like a boy that didn’t know what to do.
She felt a tug in her heart. She couldn’t refuse him coldly..
“I’ll carry you downstairs.”
“No need. Can you get a wheelchair from the nurse’s station?” How tiring would it be if he kept on carrying her?
“Sure. Wait for me!”
With that, Conrad quickly ran out while Fia smiled. Looking at how nervous he was, she would have thought that he really wanted to stay together with her if she didn’t know that he had someone else in his
He managed to get a wheelchair. Conrad then carried her into the wheelchair and pushed her out.
When they passed a ward, a vicious voice could be heard from the inside.
“Isn’t she whorish, Esme? She promised me that she wouldn’t say anything to my son, but she still said it anyway! Why is she so lucky? Why didn’t she die when she fell down the stairs?! Even the baby is alive!”
At that moment, Conrad felt like he had just been hit by a metal bat. He looked at Fia nervously.
Fia merely lowered her head and he only saw her pale, clean neck. He couldn’t see her expression.
“Aren’t we going to take a walk?” she said softly. He couldn’t hear any emotion in her voice.
Conrad’s hands around the handles of the wheelchair became even tighter. “Sure.”
The hospital had a huge park. There were artificial mountains and even a fishpond. Every ten meters or so, there would be a bench. A lot of patients and their families were around. It was very lively.
Conrad was not someone that liked to stay in an environment like this. But when he saw how Fia was looking around curiously, he felt calm.
He pushed her toward a bench where no one was sitting and asked, “Do you want to sit here for a while?”
Conrad placed her on the bench so that he could look at her expression.
All he could see was her clear eyes looking at passersby.
“What are you looking at, Fia?” He couldn’t understand what there was to see. They were all humans just like them, with the same number of eyes, nose, and mouth.
“They represent the liveliness in this world.” Fia let out a smile from her heart as she said bitterly. “My mom was very sickly and I never realized this. In the end, she spent her last moments on a bed, and I didn’t even have the chance to take her around.”
