He had never seen women fight each other out of jealousy, and he was really shocked by Adina‘s explosive power that night.
She just threw out several slaps continuously, and he was not even able to react. Naturally, he ended up being splashed with two glasses of red wine too.
When Earl recalled that incident, he felt guilty for some reason.
Nothing had happened between him and Catherine , but Adina did see that inappropriate scene.
“I‘m sure,” Adina said in a serious manner. “I just want to get better quickly. I want to live like a normal person who no longer has nightmares, no longer worries about losing anything, and no longer feels paranoid. Duke, help me…”
Earl pursed his lips. “Okay, I‘ll contact Catherine and ask her if she has time.”
As soon as he went out, Adina sighed in relief.

After she bade goodbye to the kids, Flint finally took over the phone and softly said, “Addy, you look pretty rough. What happened?”
“I‘ll tell you once all of this is over.” Adina forced a smile and said, “You‘re doing me a great favor by helping me to look after and protect the children. Thank you.”
“Hey, there‘s no need for thanks between us. I‘ll take the kids out for lunch first. Talk to you later.”
After Adina hung up, her smile instantly disappeared.
There would be an uphill battle to fight next.
She glanced at her haggard and weak reflection in the mirror. Then, she walked out and lay on the bed after she messed up her hair even more.
Earl came in very soon. “Catherine said she could spare a few hours tonight. What do you think?”
“Sure.” Adina seemed to mock herself. “Others need to make an appointment and queue up for medical treatment, so it‘s great that I can receive treatment in advance. Thank you, Duke.”
