What’s the point of overthinking it? I should focus on keeping Winson safe and let bygones be bygones. Hannah wasn’t someone vengeful and hated spending her days scheming. Realizing that it was pointless to keep hating, she decided to look past it.
Buzz… buzz… Suddenly, the phone she was holding rang. Checking it, she was curious to see that it was Xavier calling and wondered what he wanted. Nevertheless, she still took the call.
“Hello?” Hannah answered softly.
“Hello, Ms. Young, I heard your senior editor say that you weren’t feeling well and took a week off. Are you sick? Is it serious?” Xavier’s magnetic voice was heard over the phone.
“Oh, I’m fine. It’s my brother. He has leukemia. I plan to donate my bone marrow to him,” Hannah replied truthfully.
“I see. I thought something had happened to you. By the way, where are you now?” Xavier asked.
Hmm? Why are you asking me that for?
“I’m on my way to the hospital where my brother is staying. I plan to check in on him,” Hannah replied.
“Mmm-hmm. Which hospital is he staying? I would like to visit him too.”
What? You want to visit him? Do both of you even know each other? Why are you visiting him? Besides, I would definitely be in trouble if Fabian is at the hospital too.
Hannah declined, “There’s no need to do so as we have found an excellent surgeon for him. Therefore, it will likely be fine. I’m just dropping by because I miss him.”
“Alright then, remember to take care of yourself.” With that, Xavier ended the call.
Hannah heaved a sigh of relief. She was at a loss at how to deal with someone as clingy as Xavier. All he does is show is a little concern and didn’t do anything rude. However, I just can’t keep pushing him away, can I?
Nevertheless, she had conflicting emotions in her heart. Her mind subconsciously reminded herself that she was already married to Fabian and it would be inappropriate to have any close contact with Xavier.
As it was peak hour, traffic was heavy and she waited for a long time at every single red light. A journey that usually took ten minutes ended up taking half an hour instead.
After paying the cab driver with a smile, Hannah alighted from the car.
Just when she arrived at the hospital’s entrance, she saw a flashy sports car screeching to a halt right in front of her. She immediately recognized it was Xavier’s Porsche.
Hmm? Why is he here? Don’t tell me he came to see me on purpose?
Holding that thought, she quickened her footsteps, hoping to avoid him.
Just when she wanted to leave, someone tapped on her shoulder suddenly, giving her a fright.
Turning vigorously around, she was about to admonish the person when she saw that it really was Xavier.
“Ms. Young, what a coincidence that your brother is warded in this hospital,” Xavier remarked with his signature smile.
“That’s right. What a coincidence indeed.” Hannah smiled awkwardly and asked, “Do you have someone who is warded too?”
“Mmm-hmm, it’s a friend of mine who got into a car accident. But it isn’t serious.”
“I see. In that case, I won’t hold you back as I’m going to see my brother,” Hannah replied. She was worried that she might bump into Fabian there as it would be difficult to explain the situation.
“It’s fine. I’ve already visited my friend. Since you’re alone, why don’t I accompany you to see your brother?” Xavier suggested.
Huh? Are you sure you’re telling the truth? Why do I smell a plot? Did you find out where Winson is and came here on purpose to run into me? Do you really have nothing better to do? How can it be a coincidence when you came on purpose?
