Chapter 113: In A Hurry To Get Married
After learning that Caroline was pregnant, I stayed with her at the hospital.
The doctor said that she needed to be taken good care of because she was weak.
Although I still couldn’t believe that the baby she was carrying was mine, Caroline was still like a sister to me so I felt a little guilty that she fell because of me.
Whoever the father was, Caroline was still family, and she was highly favored by my mother.
She was in a delicate condition so I needed to stay with her, keep her calm, and take care of her.
It was torture for me to be alone with her in the ward.
I had to keep reminding myself to keep a respectable distance from her.
But Caroline’s whining was starting to get annoying.
“It’s late, Anthony.Come to bed.”
Caroline leaned back against the headboard.
Her pale face made her look pitiful, and she put on an air of innocence.
“Come lie with me.Let’s sleep together.The accommodation here is not as good as the hotel.Please make do with it.”
“It’s fine.I’ll just sleep on the sofa.”
I sat down on the couch, which was a safe distance from her.
“You should sleep.It will be good for you.”
Caroline’s eyes filled with tears.
“You clearly don’t want to be near me.You’re making me feel like I’m some awful virus.”
“I don’t think that.You’re overthinking things,”
I replied, but my patience was wearing thin.
“I just don’t feel ready to sleep in the same bed as you.I hope you can understand and stop being pushy about it.”
“All right, Anthony.I respect your opinion.I’m going to bed—for the baby’s sake.”
Caroline stopped trying to invite me to lie with her.
She settled into her bed and pulled the quilt over her body.
I leaned back against the sofa and glanced at my watch.
It was already late.
Honestly, I still had my doubts about the baby in Caroline’s belly.
She could insist and cry, but I would be hard-pressed to believe that the baby Visit to read the newest content, everyone! was the middle of the night.
I could finally relax.
I casually checked my phone and saw that Dylan had sent me a message.
He Visit to read the newest content, everyone! Pack’s territory.
I replied to Dylan’s message, saying, “I’m fine, Dylan.I don’t have any tasks for you for the time being.If I need you to do something for me, I’ll tell you.By the way, why are you also here?”
Just when I sent the message, Caroline suddenly woke up.
She pressed her hands over her belly and cried out.
“Anthony, my stomach hurts! Is there something wrong with our baby?”
She looked at me with pleading eyes.
“There shouldn’t be.You’re probably just feeling nervous.Here, drink some water.”
I got Visit to read the newest content, everyone! edge of her bed, and helped her drink from the cup.
However, as soon as Caroline finished drinking the water, she slipped into my arms and hugged me tightly.
“Anthony, when are you going to marry me? You’re here right now, taking care of me.That means you care about me, right? I’m already pregnant with your child.If we don’t get married, what will people think? I’m a princess and I’m pregnant before I am married.News of this will damage the reputation of the royal Visit to read the newest content, everyone! babbled with tears in her eyes.
My body stiffened in her embrace, and I gently pushed her away.
“Don’t be like this, Caroline.You are like a sister to me.You don’t feel like my mate.As for the topic of marriage, I’ll start to consider it when Mom wakes up.I’m sorry, but I can’t think about marrying you right now.”
“Anthony! Are you going to deny what you have done?”
Caroline suddenly became agitated.
“Are you going to abandon me and our child? Do you want us to live in the dark forever?”
Her questions were like knives stabbing into my conscience.
I was in a dilemma, but I didn’t know how to respond.
All of a sudden, Caroline bent over once more.
Her forehead became shiny with sweat.
I realized that her stomach was hurting again so I quickly called for a doctor.
The doctors and nurses rushed into the ward.
“This lady’s moods keep changing too frequently.It’s affecting the baby, and she needs to be treated immediately.Sir, it was not easy for us to keep the baby safe.Can you be more careful?”
I waited outside with mixed feelings.
I didn’t enter the room until Caroline’s condition stabilized.
“Are you feeling better, Caroline? You shouldn’t have gotten so agitated.”
“You know why I got so agitated.”
Caroline gnawed on her lower lip.
“Do you want this baby or not?This is your child! As the father, aren’t you being too cruel?”
“Caroline, are you trying to force me into marrying you? Can’t you give me a little more time? Stop being so pushy about this,” I said with a sigh.
“Fine.But I can’t wait very long because this child can’t wait too long either.I hope you won’t let me down, Anthony.”
Caroline compromised reluctantly.
I needed to find a way to get my memories back so I could finally find out the truth.
I needed to figure out if the child was mine and if Jennifer was my mate.
The next morning, I received a call from Dylan.
Caroline looked to be sound asleep so I stepped out of the room and answered the call after making sure that no one else was nearby.
“Mr.Jones, I’ve read your reply.There is something I need to talk to you about.I actually came to the Rainbow Pack for Jennifer.This was the task that you previously assigned to me.”
What Dylan said left me shocked.
“For Jennifer? What happened?” I couldn’t believe it.
“I’ve always trusted you, Dylan.Right now, I’ve lost some of my memories.I have so many questions about things I’ve yet to figure out.Please answer me honestly.What’s my relationship with Jennifer? Why did I ask you to watch over her?”
“Mr.Jones, I’ve been staying in the Rainbow Pack these days.I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to protect you better.Oh my ***! How could you lose your memories?”
“Forget about my amnesia for the time being.Answer my questions first.”
“Jennifer is your mate.You asked me to come to the Rainbow Pack to protect her.She had a task to carry out here, and I was responsible for her safety.”
Dylan’s answer shocked me once more.
He was my most trusted subordinate.
He wouldn’t lie to me.
This only confirmed my suspicions that Caroline had been lying to me.
I gave Dylan another task to investigate what Caroline had been up to recently.
I wanted him to keep an eye on her so that we could figure out who else she had been in contact with.
“Copy that, Mr.Jones.Do you want to meet Jennifer? I can bring her with me.If you still have any questions, you can ask her about them yourself.”
“Okay.Let’s meet at three o’clock in the afternoon at Lehrman Hotel.”
After giving Dylan the time and place, I ended the call.
I now knew that Jennifer was my mate.
Dylan wouldn’t lie to me.
But, **** it, how was I going to face her from now on? Also, what should I do to regain my memories?
