Stop It, She’s Remarrying! By Stellar Strands Chapter 68
Her tone was calm and didn’t have much life in it.
Jason frowned and said, “I’ll get you into another ward and have your information kept private. They won’t be able to disturb you then.”
“Thank you, doctor”
“Don’t worry about your mother and grandmother as well. I’ve told them to not let anyone visit them for the time being.”
Fia wept. It really warmed her heart to have someone treat her well at this point of time.
After she switched into another ward, no one disturbed her anymore.
She would rest in the ward every day and would visit her mom and grandma in the afternoon.
She noticed, for the whole week, her grandma would speak with her lawyers regarding the project’s lawsuit.
One week later, the doctor said that everything had stabilized, and she could finally be discharged. Fia finally let out a sigh of relief.
After she had finished packing up, she went to see her mom and grandma. It only took one week but her mother had become even frailer.
As her grandma needed to worry about her matters, she looked even older too.
“Fia, there’s something that I need to tell you,” Thea said as she handed her a document.
Fia flipped through it. It was a court document regarding the project.
“Grandma, do you need me to do anything?”
“I need to go to court the day after tomorrow. Your mom is not feeling well, so accompany her in the hospital.”
Fia hesitated and said, “Maybe I should go, Grandma? You’re not that tough anymore.”
“Don’t worry. With Old Maxwell’s will with me, we can’t lose this lawsuit,” Thea said with a smile as she consoled her. “Take care of your mother and wait for my victorious return.”
“The hesitation in Fia’s mind disappeared.
She also believed that with Grandpa Maxwell’s will, her grandma would win the case.
On the day the case went on trial, Thea woke up early and Fia helped her comb her hair.
Thea glanced at Echo who had just gone to bed after eating her medicine and she said, “Fia, accompany me downstairs.”
Fia was helping Thea to the elevator when Thea suddenly said, “There’s no need to hurry. Find somewhere that we can talk.”
Thea pulled Fia and entered the stairwell. The automated light switched on and the two of them sat on the stairs.
“Fia… While your mom is quite sleepy most of the time because of her sickness, I know what’s happening. From you coming to our ward the whole day for the past few days and the scent of sanitizers over you.. It’s obvious that you’re admitted to the hospital too.”
Fia froze. She didn’t know how to face her grandma.
Thea stroked her face with her old hands and said, “What happened? How’s your body?”
Fia lowered her head and said, “I’m fine.”
Thea frowned. “When you’re eating with us, your taste changes too. Are you pregnant?”
Thea sighed and said, “From the looks of it, I’m right.”
“Grandma, I didn’t want to hide it from you. I was just concerned that you’ll get worried.”
“Why did you get admitted to the hospital? Is the baby not doing well?”
“Yes, but we’re fine now. I can leave the hospital today.”
Thea patted Fia’s hand and said, “That’s great. But remember not to get careless after this. You have to keep yourself healthy and protect the child.”
Fia was silent.
Thea held her face and looked into her eyes with concern.
She then said, “Don’t tell me you don’t want the child?”
Fia’s tears filled her eyes as she shook her head. She felt blamed.
She wanted the child, but Conrad didn’t!
“Fia… You’re very fragile and it’s not easy for you to have this baby. You must protect it, alright?”
Thea hugged Fia and whispered, “I know that it’s hard for you, but everyone has their own trials in this life. It’s a bit tougher for you, but it’s not that tough when compared with your mom
