It made her jealous to the extreme.
She held her pen tightly, and the tip of the pen punctured the paper in her hands.
As if Adina did not notice Catherine‘s emotions, she raised her voice and called out, “Duke, are you there?”
He opened the ward door at the next second. Clearly, Earl had been guarding the door.
That turned Catherine‘s expression a little colder.
“What‘s wrong, Addy?” Earl walked in and cast an unfriendly gaze at Catherine.
Catherine was furious. She did not do anything!
“Duke, I‘d like to drink some coffee to calm my nerves.” Adina‘s voice was soft and weak, while her eyes were watery. “I like the freshly ground latte from the coffee shop on Assembly Street. Can you buy one for me?”

As soon as Adina spoke, a man crawled out of the cabinet in the ward.
It was a blond–haired guy with blue eyes. He was skinny, and he wore gold–rimmed glasses.
“Daugherty, I‘ve done you a great favor this time. You‘ll have to reward me!”
Right after he got off the plane, he posed as a nurse and sneaked into the ward. He had hidden in the cabinet for a day. His limbs were numb, and he almost died in there.
Adina pulled him up and softly said, “We‘re running out of time. Let‘s get down to business first.”
Pete stood up, pushed his glasses up the bridge of his nose, and looked at the woman who had fainted on the couch. He smiled and said, “It really is Catherine. I met her at a seminar before.
