The sound of the toilet being flushed startled him as he got back to his senses. Fia had already walked out of the washroom using the wall as support.
He followed her out and said in an unfriendly tone. “I’ll get you to the hospital for a checkup.”
Fia frowned and then remembered the things that her grandma said to her when they were alone.
She sat down on the bed and then looked at the pork chop on the bedside table.
“Why are you so sure that my stomach is the one with the problem?”
Conrad merely said, “Well, how can your stomach be alright if you vomited like that?”
“Ha. Did you know I can vomit like that too if I’m pregnant?”
“You can’t get pregnant,” Conrad said with a frown.
Fia bit the inside of her mouth and looked at him.
“Why are you so sure that I won’t get pregnant?”
Conrad’s expression froze and stared at her. “What are you trying to say?”
His words absolutely angered her.
She grabbed a pillow and hurled it at him. “What do you mean, what are you trying to say?!”
“It’s been three years. Don’t you think I would know if you’re pregnant? What are you up to, saying that to me?”
“What am I up to? Are you worried that I will keep your child and take your assets after you’re dead?!”
“What are you talking about?!” Conrad kicked away a chair. “I’m not dying!”
Fia stared at him coldly. “You’re not alive, but you’re almost dead to me.”
He didn’t know why, but Conrad could sense the sorrow and despair in her voice.
He didn’t understand why she would feel that way.
He simply looked at her leaving the bedroom before getting up and chasing after her.
Fia pretended not to hear him and simply walked down the stairs.
Conrad remembered how she would put him first in everything. But to think that she would now ignore him like that… He grabbed her arm from behind.
Fia let out a scream as she was going to fall down the stairs below.
Conrad immediately pulled her back and picked her up with a glint of nervousness in his eyes.
“Why are you still walking like a child when you’re all grown up?!”
“It’s because you pulled me!” She bit his chest after saying that.
“Hungry?” The two of them froze when a voice suddenly came from somewhere.
Fia let go of him and looked away.
“Master, Madam. I’ve prepared breakfast,” Mrs. Taylor said with a smile as she stood at the bottom of the stairs.
Fia wanted to come down from Conrad, but she couldn’t as he held her tightly by her back and behind her knee.
Conrad then said, “Mrs. Taylor, her stomach isn’t in the best condition. I’m taking her to the hospital for a checkup.”
“Her stomach?” Mrs. Taylor asked.
“Not sure. She threw up early in the morning,” Conrad continued.
Mrs. Taylor’s eyes opened wide. “Is she pregnant?”
Conrad could feel the person he was carrying suddenly freeze.
He looked down and saw the nervousness in her eyes.
A thought popped into his head. ‘Is she really pregnant? She couldn’t get pregnant before, but she got pregnant at a time like this?‘
“You’re mistaken, Mrs. Taylor. My stomach simply hasn’t been feeling well recently.” Fia got away from Conrad while he was still stunned by the question.
When she saw Mrs. Taylor looking at her belly, she covered her stomach although nothing was showing.
“I’m hungry. I’ll go get something first.”
When Mrs. Taylor saw Fia running away, she glanced at Conrad suspiciously.
“Master Maxwell, you’ll know if she’s pregnant or not once you get the hospital to give her a proper checkup.”
“She can’t get pregnant.”
Mrs. Taylor was silent for a moment before saying, “Master Maxwell… There’s something I need to tell you.”
About ten minutes later, Fia was preparing to run away after she quickly had her breakfast. However, Conrad caught up with her at the entrance, just as she was just about to walk out. He had her against the
“Why didn’t you tell me?”
