As I stood by the window that evening, lost in thought, I felt my heart still trembling with fear.
All of a sudden, I heard the doorbell ring, so I walked to the door.
“Is Scarlett okay?” Spencer walked in, looking rather anxious.
And David and Vivian followed him inside.
“She was scared, but now she’s asleep.”
Upon hearing that, David asked with a frown, “Was it an accident or a conspiracy?”
“It was certainly not an accident,” I answered affirmatively.
The next second, the doorbell rang again, and Richard walked in. “Mr. Moore, we have already checked the cellphones of those troublemakers, and we have found that the person who contacted them is from this city, but we don’t know their identity yet.”
I fell silent when I heard that while David questioned in an anxious tone, “Who do you think it might be?”
“At first, we thought that it might be Rita, but we had to rule her out because she is abroad now…”
I massaged my temples, feeling exhausted. “Take those troublemakers to the police station.”
Upon hearing my orders, Richard nodded and left.
I felt a little annoyed, looking at David, Spencer, and Vivian, who were sitting on my couch, so I asked them to leave. “You three should leave too.”
Spencer straightened up his clothes, but it seemed like he was unwilling to leave. “We came here to see Scarlett. Isn’t it rude of you to drive us away before we even say hi to her?”
I looked at him coldly and said in a low voice, “If you came to visit the patient, then why did you come empty-handed?”
Embarrassed, Spencer gave me an awkward smile and justified, “Well… I was too anxious to see her… Anyway, I’ll buy her a gift later.”
With an indifferent expression, I glanced at him and said, “Get out of here.
Soon, they left, and the whole house became quiet again. A strange sense of fear rose in my heart when I thought of what happened before.
I stood up, walked to the window, and dialed a number on my phone.
“Arrange two female bodyguards for me. They should be strong and good at fighting,” I said concisely before I hung Visit novel to read the newest content, everyone! know how long I had slept.
I found myself lying on my bed at home when I woke up.
I instinctively put my hand Visit ********.com to read the newest content, everyone! that my baby was doing okay.
Picking up my phone, I browsed the Internet for news. There were articles about my miscarriage all over the web.
Recalling what had happened the day before, I knew that there was someone who did not want me to give birth to the baby.
Thinking of that, I broke into a cold sweat and my limbs felt like a block of ice.
Just before I could have had a panic attack, Charles walked into the room and hugged me. “Are Visit www.********.com to read the newest content, everyone! leaned into his arms and said weakly, “I’m fine. I just feel a little dizzy.”
“Would you like to lie down a bit longer, then?”
“No. I have already slept for way too long.” I put my arms around his neck and continued in a serious tone, “Was it Rita that called you yesterday?”
“Yes. If we find out that she’s the one behind all of this, then she is going to be in some serious trouble,”
les said in a deep voice, before he lifted Visit wwwnoveljar.com to read the newest content, everyone! two strangers in the living room, I could not understand what was going on.
“Scarlett, meet Janet and Tracy. I hired them as your bodyguards.”
Saying that, Charles gently put me down on the sofa.
“You don’t have to be so melodramatic. I am fine,” I refused at once.
With a helpless sigh, Charles grabbed my hand and tried to persuade me gently, “What if the accident that happened yesterday happens again? I can’t always be with you, and when I am not with you, I want you to be protected. That’s the only way I can be at ease.”
“They will protect you, no matter what it takes, and they won’t make you feel uncomfortable. If you ever get bored, you can talk to them.”
When I realized that I could not refuse him at all, I could not help but chuckle.
After thinking for a while, I said to Charles, “Since you want to arrange bodyguards for me, I want another person too.”
“Who is it?” Charles asked, as though he was willing to agree to let whoever I want be my bodyguard.
“I want Richard.”
Upon hearing that, Charles frowned.
“Let’s get you someone else. I don’t think that Richard will be good. After all, he slept with Rita.”
“I want him. I don’t want anyone else,” I said like a spoiled child.
Charles held my hand and said in an awkward tone, “Honey…”
I sighed helplessly and argued, “It’s going to be okay. I don’t care about his past, so why do you?”
“All right, then.” In the end, Charles had no choice but to compromise.
After I had breakfast, the doctor came to visit.
“How is she now?” Charles asked the doctor nervously.
The doctor took off his mask and said to him with a smile, “She is perfectly fine, and the baby is healthy. Just be careful in your daily activities in the future.”
“Thank you, doctor.” With that, Charles saw the doctor off.
He walked back into the room a while later, and was about to sit down when his phone rang all of a sudden.
Sitting down beside me, he whispered, “It’s from Rita.”
“Pick up. And put it on speaker,” I said in a hurry.
Charles gave me a nod and answered the call in an indifferent tone, “What’s up?”
“I saw the news, and I was worried about Scarlett, so I wanted to know how she is doing.”
Holding Charles’ hand, I hinted at him.
He gave me a nod before he said over the phone, “She’s not doing well. I think it might take a while for her to get better.”
“What a terrible news! I hope she recovers real soon.” Upon hearing her tone filled with fake pity, I could not help but sneer in my heart.
“If there’s nothing else, then bye.”
“Charles, can we talk? There is some business that I would like to discuss with you,” Rita said at once, in an anxious tone.
Without saying anything, Charles disconnected the call.
He then held me and asked with a confused look in his eyes, “Why did you want me to tell her that you’re not fine?”
“I wanted her to be happy for the time being,” I said with a chuckle.
Charles leaned closer and kissed the corners of my mouth as he whispered, “Take the bodyguards with you, no matter where you go.”
“Okay, I got it.” I did not want him to worry about me, so I nodded.
