Chapter 116: Rescue
I was annoyed beyond belief.
Since when had Caroline become such an annoying brat? I just wanted to be alone.
I didn’t want to be around Caroline, who kept pestering me.
But she was pregnant.
Her cries might affect the baby in her belly.
I didn’t want to add to her plate, so I had no choice but to stay here with her.
Even if Caroline was lying, she was still my sister.
I couldn’t ignore her and leave her behind since she was pregnant.
If my mother woke up and learned about what had happened to her beloved daughter, her heart would break.
I needed to be there for Caroline.
Although I didn’t know who the father of the baby was, I figured it would be best if I took good care of her.
As I thought about these things, I kept my eyes on Caroline.
I couldn’t help but feel incredibly annoyed.
Just then, my phone started to ring.
It was a call from Dylan.
I pressed the phone against my ear as I walked out of the ward.
“Mr.Jones, Jennifer got into a car accident on the way to visit you,”
Dylan said breathlessly, his voice trembling.
“She is seriously injured and unconscious right now.I don’t know if she’ll be able to come through the operation.Will you please come and meet her?”
I felt my world shatter when I heard Jennifer got into a car accident.I could feel all the color drain from my face.I couldn’t believe my ears.
She was in grave danger before I was able to regain my memories.
A wave of shock and worry swept over me.
I didn’t even take the time to think.
After asking where I Jennifer was, I rushed towards the operating room as fast as I could.
Caroline tried to run after me and shouted, “Anthony, don’t leave me alone! Where are you going?”
I could tell that she lost her temper, but I didn’t even stop to look at her.
I didn’t give a **** about anything else but the news that Jennifer’s life was in danger.
I didn’t stop running until I made it to the operating room.
Dylan and a she-wolf were pacing anxiously outside the door.
They were both injured, bandages wrapped around Visit to read the newest content, everyone! asked, out of breath.
“When Jennifer heard that you were at the hospital, she came to see you in a hurry and we Visit to read the newest content, everyone! accident on the way.She was sitting in the passenger seat.I don’t know what happened exactly.I just know that she was covered in blood…”
Dylan’s eyes were red and his voice trailed off.
He looked traumatized and didn’t seem to want to relive what had just happened.
“This is all my fault.I failed to protect her.”
I felt this was all my fault! If I hadn’t changed my mind all of a sudden, Jennifer wouldn’t have come looking for me, and she wouldn’t have gotten into an Visit to read the newest content, everyone! by the operating room door was on, indicating that the operation was ongoing.
My heart raced painfully in my chest.
I loved her.
Even though I couldn’t remember a thing about her, I knew in my heart that I loved her.
She was the only thing on my mind now.
I sincerely hoped that the girl I loved would survive this.
“It looks like you care about Jennifer a lot.It is your destiny to fall in love with her!”
Zane said in my mind.
I didn’t deny it, but now Visit to read the newest content, everyone! was simply too consumed with worry for Jennifer.
The thought of her life in danger made my heart want to leap out of my chest.
I waited outside the operating room for a long time.
Every passing minute was torture for me.
Finally, the door to the operating room was opened and an unconscious Jennifer was wheeled out.
I immediately approached her and the doctor who was pushing her along.
“Doctor, how Is she?”
“Fortunately, the patient’s life is not in danger anymore, but her vitals aren’t stable yet.She needs to be transferred to the intensive care unit for observation.”
I heaved a sigh of relief and followed them to the intensive care unit with Dylan and the she-wolf.
I wanted to stay by Jennifer’s bed and wait for her to wake up, even if it meant staying there forever.
I could see Anthony lying in a bed, covered in blood.
He was seriously injured.
I could hear the machine next to him beeping urgently, until he flat- lined and everything went eerily quiet.
The doctors surrounding him all shook their heads helplessly, telling me to keep it together.
But I couldn’t.
I felt my heart shatter into a million pieces.
I couldn’t go on like this.
I wanted to die along with Anthony.
I kept calling his name, tears streaming down my face.
I suddenly opened my eyes in a daze.
I had been dreaming.
My surroundings were unfamiliar.
I seemed to be lying in a hospital bed, and Anthony was sitting next to me, unharmed.
“Jennifer! You’re finally awake! Anthony’s whole face lit up and he held my hand to his cheek, and I felt his warmth.
“Anthony, I’m so glad you’re okay.I dreamt that something bad happened to you.It was terrible!”
Anthony hushed me and caressed my cheek lovingly.
“I’m fine.See? I’m fine.It’s you I should be worried about.Are you okay?”
He pressed the back of his hand against my forehead gently.
“My whole body hurts.”
As I spoke, I suddenly remembered that we had gotten into an accident on my way to meet Anthony.
Was I already dead? “What’s going on?”
I reached out to pinch myself, wanting to make sure I was still alive.
Only then did I realize that I was covered in bandages from head to toe and could barely move.
“Jennifer, I’m just glad you’re awake.Dylan told me you had gotten into an accident, so I came here as soon as I could.You don’t know how scared I was when I heard the news.I’ve been waiting by your side since then.By the way, both Dylan and Skylar are fine.Actually, they’re outside now.Do you want me to call them in?”
Just as Anthony was about to stand up, I squeezed his hand firmly.
“Anthony, could we be alone for a while?”
“Okay.I’m here for you.Always.”
Anthony looked into my eyes and his expression softened.
“By the way, how are you feeling? Is there any spot in particular that’s unbearably painful?”
Fortunately, while my body was in pain, it was nothing I couldn’t bear.
Just as I was about to shake my head, a thought occurred to me and I pouted like a spoiled child.
“Hug me.I won’t feel better until you hug me.”
Anthony kicked off his shoes and climbed into the narrow hospital bed with me, wrapping his arms around me.
Lying in Anthony’s arms made me feel a sense of security that I hadn’t felt in a long time.
Tears of joy started to stream down my cheeks.
“lf I had known that it would only take a car accident to bring you back to me, I would have done it much sooner!”
“Jennifer, don’t talk like that.Your safety is my utmost priority.”
As Anthony spoke, he pressed his finger against my lips and kissed away the tears that streamed down my face.I felt incredibly happy and basked in his tenderness, interlocking my fingers with his.
The atmosphere in the ward was very warm and I was more than satisfied.
However, it didn’t last.
All of a sudden, the door was violently pushed open.
I looked up and saw Caroline standing by the door in a hospital gown, staring at Anthony with red eyes.
Caroline? What was she doing here? Anthony had said that he was at the hospital too when I was in the operating room.
Was he there for her?
