She felt sick whenever she glanced at Rachel, who looked like a walking dead now.
“Oh, okay. I’ll get a glass of water for you now.” Rachel hastily grabbed a glass from the table but still stared at Evelyn.
Since Rachel walked backward while she talked, she didn’t realize a small tool behind her. As such, she tripped over it and fell. Also, the glass was broken and shattered all over the floor.
Evelyn immediately glanced away in disgust after witnessing it. She’s not a kid anymore! This is so embarrassing!
“Evelyn, did the broken pieces of glass cut your skin? Are you alright?”
After getting up, Rachel’s first reaction was to rush toward Evelyn and check if she was injured.
“I’m fine. You should be careful,” Evelyn knitted her brows and said impatiently.
“I know. I’ll be careful next time. Wait a minute. Let me get another glass of water for you,” Rachel said as she looked at Evelyn with guilt.
Deep down, Rachel scolded herself for being old and useless, for she couldn’t even get a glass of water for her daughter.
She hastily grabbed another glass on the table and limped toward the water dispenser. Her knee was probably scraped when she fell to the floor earlier on. However, she wasn’t bothered by the pain in her knee.
After filling up the glass, she smilingly handed it over to Evelyn and said, “Evelyn, have some water.”
Actually, Rachel’s hand was also scrapped by the broken pieces of glass and bleeding. She didn’t notice that she accidentally stained the glass with her blood.
On the other hand, Evelyn was about to lose it once she noticed the crimson stain. Is this lowly woman really my biological mother? How do I ever muster up the courage to acknowledge her as my mother?
Evelyn didn’t take the glass from her and held back her anger. “I don’t want to drink it now. Please put it aside.”
Stunned for a while, Rachel recollected herself and said, Alright, I’ll put it aside. Just tell me when you want to have some water, and I can get it for you. It’s not convenient for you to walk now.”
Rachel gazed at Evelyn’s leg when she was talking. The next moment, tears streamed down her face uncontrollably. God is unfair. Since I was at fault, why would He let my daughter bear the punishment for me instead? I deserve to go to hell, but Evelyn… she’s still young.
Evelyn frustratedly pulled the blanket that covered her legs. Deep in her heart, she didn’t want to stay in the ward any longer.
“I’m here to tell you that I’m willing to donate my bone marrow to save your life,” Evelyn furrowed her brows while explaining her reason for being there.
“Really?” Rachel found it hard to believe. “Evelyn, are you really willing to save me?”
Rachel couldn’t help but cry because she was touched. Evelyn still loves me because I’m her mom, after all. Since we’re related by blood, Evelyn won’t leave me stranded.
“Didn’t I say it already?” Evelyn got a little impatient. “Remember to tell Vivian about it. I’m going to see the doctor now.”
Once Evelyn finished, she wanted to leave the ward in the wheelchair but was stopped by Rachel.
“Evelyn, why must I tell Vivian about it? Also, since you’re not that convenient, let me bring you to see the doctor.”
“Don’t ask me why and just tell her about it. Just do as I said!” In the end, Evelyn couldn’t hold in her anger and yelled at Rachel.
“Evelyn, please don’t get angry. It was my fault. I shouldn’t ask so many questions. Please calm down, and I promise that I won’t ask about it further,” Rachel immediately comforted her because she was pissed off.
After a while, Evelyn realized that it wasn’t the right time for her to vent her anger.
As such, she calmed herself down and said, “Vivian looked for me once and told me about your condition. So, I want you to inform her so that she won’t be worried about it. Since you’re not feeling well, just stay in the ward to get more rest. I can see the doctor myself.”
“Alright, I’ll do as you said. I’ll give Vivian a phone call right away. Be careful when you leave.”
