After dinner, they chatted in the ward amiably.
Hannah was delighted as this would be her last night in the hospital.
My bed, I’m coming!
This very night, Hannah had a restful slumber. Seeing her smiling in her dreams, Fabian felt a surge of happiness within.
The next morning, the sun crept up over the horizon and began to peek its glowing crown over the land. Hannah opened her eyes and stretched lazily. She was about to get up when she realized Fabian was nowhere to be seen.
Hannah wondered, Doesn’t Fabian feel tired? He sleeps later and wakes up earlier than me every day. He also needs to work. I don’t get it. Is he a robot?
She shook her head and grinned to herself. “He doesn’t understand how important sleep is. Well, that man has no idea how to enjoy life.”
After washing up, Hannah packed her stuff up. Shortly after, Helen and Jason arrived in her ward.
“Eh? Where is Fabian?” Jason asked the moment he stepped in.
Hannah shook her head. “I don’t know. He wasn’t here when I woke up earlier.”
“Let me help you pack up,” offered Helen.
“I can do it myself. I’m not a patient anymore. It has been a torture to lie in bed for the past few days,” replied Hannah with a smile. She appreciated Helen’s concern, though.
Soon, Hannah finished packing up her stuff. They could leave when Fabian came back.
Right then, the door was pushed open. Thinking it was Fabian, Hannah raised her voice. “Hurry! We’re waiting for you!”
“Huh? Waiting for me?” Instead of Fabian’s voice, a woman’s voice rang out.
“Why would you be waiting for me?” Lyna came to them and questioned curiously.
Yes, Lyna had decided to take action against Hannah. She was here to gain Hannah’s trust so her plan could succeed.
“Oh, we’re waiting for Fabian,” responded Hannah hastily.
As Lyna remained doubtful, Hannah explained, “I’m about to be discharged from the hospital. I think he went to take care of the procedures.”
“Oh, I see. You’re alright now?”
“Yes. The doctor said I can leave anytime,” came Hannah’s answer.
At the same time, Hannah couldn’t hide her surprise. Why is Lyna here alone? Don’t the rest of the Blackwoods know Winson will be leaving the hospital today, too? None of them are here to pick him up.
Didn’t Fabian inform them? I don’t think so, though.
They chatted briefly before Fabian returned.
Heather might’ve called off Fabian and Lyna’s marriage, but the latter refused to give up. She blindly believed that she would end up with Fabian if she could get rid of Hannah.
“Hello, Fabian,” she greeted him warmly.
Hannah found her tone uncomfortable, but she said nothing.
Fabian found Lyna disgusting. He was familiar with women like her with an ulterior motive. Inwardly, he shook his head and thought, That silly girl is much more likeable.
A smile flitted across his lips as he made his way toward Hannah. “I’ve dealt with the discharge procedures. On the way back, I ran into some friends and chatted with them briefly, hence the delay.”
Oh? He’s explaining the reason for his delay? Hannah’s lips curved up into a smile as she whispered, “Alright. Let’s wait for a bit. The Blackwoods aren’t here yet.”
“Mm.” Fabian glanced at Lyna and nodded.
“This woman obviously has an ulterior motive for being here. I think she harbors feelings for Fabian. Tell Hannah to keep her guard up,” Jason whispered in Helen’s ears after he gave Lyna the once-over.
