Chapter 23: Discharged From Hospital
On the training ground, shouts could be heard one after another.
As I stood aside and watched the trainees practice, I suddenly felt very irritable.
I had been feeling this way for the past several days.
I often became absent -minded for no reason.
Neil was chatting with someone by his side.
I wasn’t in the mood to stay any longer, so I turned to leave.
“Was he absent every night?”
“Half the time.Some nights, he would come back, but very late, and sometimes, he wouldn’t return to the dormitory at night at all.”
“I didn’t expect Daniel to be so disobedient! I’ll ask him about it later.”
When I heard Daniel’s name, I stopped in my tracks.
I knew that Daniel had always been close to Jennifer.
The two of them had complained about me to each other.
And once, when Jennifer’s leg was injured, Daniel went to see her with medicine.
But why wasn’t he returning to the dormitory at night these days? Later that day, my mother came to see me.
I knew that she had gone to visit Jennifer.
Since my mother was in poor health, I had advised her to come back early, and she had agreed.
But now, after the visit, she didn’t seem to be in a good mood.
“You brat!”she snapped as soon as she saw me.
“Jennifer is going to be discharged from the hospital tomorrow.You haven’t gone to the hospital to see her even once.What the **** is going on in that head of yours? Is something wrong between you and Jennifer?”
“It’s nothing like that.Don’t worry too much.The most important thing for you is to take good care of your own health,” I said, trying to sound assuring.
However, she continued to glare at me, utterly unconvinced.
“If there was nothing wrong, then why would Daniel come to the hospital to visit her? At this rate, he’ll ****** your mate away in no time! Aren’t you worried?”
Daniel? At the hospital? I had been hearing his name too many times today.
“You mean Daniel came to the hospital to take care of Jennifer?” I asked in disbelief.
“Yes.And it seems that he has been going there every evening to take care of Jennifer, after finishing his training in the daytime.And unlike you, he manages to make time for both! Are you really too busy to visit your mate who is hospitalized?” my mother snapped.
But I could barely hear her words.
All I could think about was the reason that Daniel hadn’t been going back to his dormitory at night these days; it turned out that he was out all night taking care of my mate.
So, a male and a female had been spending almost every night together for the past few days.
How would the two of them get along while they were all alone? Would they fall in love with each other as time went by? I dared not think further.
Disappointed with my silence, my mother added, “Anyway, you better pick Jennifer up from the hospital tomorrow when she’s charged.If you can’t do that, don’t call me your mother anymore.”
After saying that, she stormed off without giving me a chance to refute.I couldn’t argue with her threat even I wanted to.
After all, I couldn’t tell her that Jennifer and I had never really accepted each other as mates.
I rubbed my forehead and let out an exasperated sigh.
It was getting dark outside, but I couldn’t fall asleep at all.
All I could think about was that Jennifer and Daniel must be together right now.
Jennifer was very beautiful.
When her bright eyes blinked, it was as if an addictive drug was hidden within them.
She had a perfect figure, with great curves.
She was attractive from head to toe.
No normal man would be able to resist her.
They would probably even die for the chance to have *** with her.
In fact, that was why I always restrained myself from touching her.
That night, after I finally dozed off, I had a nightmare where Daniel did all kinds of things to Jennifer that I didn’t even dare to think about.
I was so angry that I wanted to teach that ******* a good lesson, but Jennifer stopped me and told me that she had fallen in love with Daniel.
When I suddenly jerked awake from the nightmare, I was covered in sweat.
I panted heavily and wiped the sweat away.
I knew Jennifer wouldn’t do that.
The next day, I drove to the hospital early in the morning.
Since the road was empty, I drove as fast as I could.
In the end, I arrived at the hospital without having to slow down even once.
When the cold wind blew into the car through the windows, it suddenly sobered me up, making me hesitate.
I stopped the car at the gate of the hospital, finding it hard to understand what I was doing here.
Was I really going to do that? Was I really going to tie Jennifer up with me? The street was crowded with passers-by.
While I still sat in the car hesitating, I saw the woman I had come here to pick up at the gate of the hospital with Daniel by her side.
Daniel was holding Jennifer’s arm with one hand, and supporting her with his other arm wrapped loosely around her waist.
The word popped out of my mouth before I could even think about it, and my voice sounded so sharp that it left me shocked.
The two people who were about to get in the car turned their heads to look in my direction.
Jennifer’s eyes flickered with confusion, but soon, she smiled.
I got out of the car, closed the car door, and strode over to them.
To their astonishment, I abruptly reached out and took Jennifer’s luggage from Daniel.
I told Jennifer.
However, Daniel didn’t seem to intend to let go of her.
“Mr.Jones, I can handle it.You don’t have to do this.”
He spoke in a polite voice with a gentle smile, as if Jennifer was his mate and it was his duty to take care of her.
I couldn’t help but cast a cold glance at him.
“You’d better go to attend the training as soon as possible.
Since I happened to meet Jennifer here, I’ll drive her back.
I think your dormitory head might need to talk to you about your staying out all night these days.”
Hearing what I said, Jennifer shook her head at Daniel.
“Daniel, you should go attend the training right now.I’ll be fine with Mr.Jones.”
“All right, Jennifer.Go back and have a good rest.See you later,”
Daniel said reluctantly.
“Okay, see you later.”
After Daniel left alone in his car, Jennifer and I got into mine.
Neither of us took the initiative to speak.
A strange silence befell the car, that even the wind blowing outside seemed too noisy.
“Mr.Jones, thank you for saving me again.”
Just when I thought that this unnerving silence would last till we reached our destination, Jennifer’s soft voice rang in my ears, making my heart skip a beat.
“Jennifer.” I called her name.
**** it! I didn’t know what to say at this moment.
“You’re welcome.I was just passing by.It was no problem,”
I said through gritted teeth, continuing to keep my eyes on the road.
“Passing by again?”Jennifer chuckled.
“Whatever it is, you saved my life.I will never forget it.”
“You weren’t passing by.You went there to pick her up.There is nothing to deny,”Zane grumbled in my mind.
“Besides, couldn’t you at least have come up with a better excuse?”
I snapped at him.
I needed to hide my emotions, so Jennifer wouldn’t discover it.
