Chapter 488 A Secret!
When Nora heard these words, she hurriedly pushed open the door and walked in.
Lily was pressing on Old Maddy’s arm. Ever since he was poisoned by Yvonne, his body had not been well, and his mind had not recovered.
His expression was still not good, and the burns on his body were terrifying.
Lily comforted him. “Boss is coming soon. Don’t be agitated…”
Old Maddy danced around and kept shouting, “I want to see Yvette’s daughter! Quickly call her to see me! It’ll be over if she’s late! I want to tell her a secret…”
Lily almost couldn’t control him anymore. At this moment, Nora entered the door. When she heard the door opening, Lily turned back to look at her and finally heaved a sigh of relief.
“You’re finally here!”
Lily stood up and said with resentment, “If you hadn’t come soon, Old Maddy would really have gone crazy this time!”
Nora ignored her nagging and walked straight to the bed. When he saw her face, Old Maddy calmed down.
His turbid eyes suddenly became clear. He looked at Nora quietly for a while before smiling. “You’re here.” “I’m here.”
Nora held his dry hand. His fingers were especially dry because they had been burned before, and his skin was very wrinkled.
She asked softly, “What’s the matter?”
Old Maddy looked at her and his eyes gradually calmed down. He smiled. “I want to tell you that you need to have a child!”
She was stunned. “What?”
“You need to have a child! Now, now! Hurry!” Old Maddy suddenly became anxious and pushed her out. “Do it now.”
His words were incoherent, making her even more confused.
However, Nora’s heart jumped a little. She seemed to have thought of something and asked, “Why?” “Why?”
Old Maddy was stunned. “Yes, why?”
He was pushing Nora’s hand, but he suddenly quietened down. He scratched his head hard. “Why? Why can’t I remember why? Why? Why? Why ?…”
He muttered softly to himself. After saying these words, he grabbed his hair hard because he could not remember the reason. A few strands of hair had been plucked off by him from his already barren scalp, but he still could not seem to remember.
He suddenly slapped his head angrily. “Why? Tell me quickly. Why?” Nora saw that he was gradually losing his mind and seemed to be getting more and more anxious. She hurriedly held his hand. “Old Maddy…”
When Old Maddy saw her, he did not think about why anymore. Instead, he held her hand. “Quickly go and have a child. Go!” Nora: “…I already gave birth.”
“You gave birth?”
Old Maddy was stunned. “It really happened?”
There were even two of them.
Nora did not say the last sentence. She only stared at Old Maddy. When she saw that he seemed to have heard this, she heaved a sigh of relief. Then, he slowly closed her eyes. His emotions seemed to have calmed down. Nora asked tentatively, “Can you remember anything else?”
Old Maddy whispered, “I can’t remember. I can’t remember. I’m old. I’m crazy… And I can’t think. My head hurts. My head hurts so much…”
“Okay, don’t think about it yet. But if you remember anything else, you have to tell me.”
Nora reminded him softly. Old Maddy nodded. “I’ll remember. I know…”
After Old Maddy fell asleep, Nora walked out of the ward.
Lily looked at her. “Anti, I think Old Maddy’s condition has improved. At least he was talking to you normally just now. But he’s so strange! Why did he want you to have a child?”
Nora shook her head to indicate that she did not know.
She told Lily, “Take good care of Old Maddy. When his physical fitness reaches a certain level, I’ll continue his treatment.”
Old Maddy might be someone who knew about some things back then! Only by curing Old Maddy could she possibly know some of her mother’s secrets.
Since she was at the hospital, Nora went to visit Quentin again.
Quentin lay there and was getting another nurse to feed him fruits. As he ate, he said, “Don’t look at how I’m paralyzed on the bed now and can’t even lift a cup of water. You don’t know how powerful I used to be.”
At this point, he took a bite of an apple and continued, “My martial arts are especially good. It’s not a problem for me to fight ten people alone! What’s with your expression? When I’m done, I’ll fight ten for you to see!”
When Nora heard this, she stopped in her tracks.
As she stood at the door, she heard the nurse say, “Okay? How big is your heart? Do you know how serious your injuries are?”
Quentin smiled. “Do you know who my cousin is?
The young nurse: “…I know. It’s Anti!”
“Other than Anti, she’s also Big… Forget it, I won’t tell you anymore. You won’t understand even if I tell you. Anyway, she’s very good at fighting!”
The young nurse asked, “Is she better than
Quentin: “…D**n, she’s just a little better than me. Really, just a little. When I recover, I’ll practice for another ten years. I’ll definitely beat her! Because she’s too lazy. She only knows how to sleep every day… If she doesn’t practice, she’ll only worsen! Why should I tell you about fighting? What I want to tell you is that with her around, I’ll definitely be able to stand up!”
Nora clenched her fists silently. Her almond-shaped eyes drooped slightly. It was as if there was suddenly a heavy burden on her shoulders.
She did not expect Quentin to trust her so blindly.
This made her feel pressured.
She did not enter and instead turned to Ian’s lounge.
Ian was holding his phone and looking at something. However, Nora could vaguely hear Joel’s voice.
She was about to take a closer look when Ian heard her enter. He quickly switched off her phone and looked at her guiltily. “Nora, why are you here?”
Nora: “…How are you?” Ian smiled. “I’m quite good. I feel like I can be discharged in a few days.”
Ian looked at her.
Nora pursed her lips.
Ian was still looking at her.
Nora sat down at the side and stood upright.
Ian was still looking at her.
For a moment, there was nothing between them. A faint awkwardness filled the room.
Looking at her new father, Nora still felt a sense of estrangement.
After all, she had seen him fewer than a dozen times.
Nora stood up. “If you’re fine, I’ll get going.” Ian subconsciously asked, “You’re leaving so soon?”
He had not seen enough of his daughter! Nora nodded. “Yes, I still have something to do.”
She walked towards the door and had just opened it when Ian’s voice suddenly came from behind. “Nora, you just went to see Quentin, right?”
She did not turn back, but she still heard Ian’s voice. “It’s okay. As long as you try your best, even if the outcome is unsatisfactory, it’s okay. I know Quentin. He won’t blame you.”
Nora felt relieved. She felt as if strands of warmth were flowing into her heart again.
She lowered her head. “Yes.”
With that, she turned around. “Thank you.”
After leaving the hospital, Nora got into her car and planned to interrogate Yvonne.
However, she suddenly thought of something and picked up her phone. She suddenly sent that little psycho a message: “Can I ask you a question?”
The little psycho replied quickly: “Beg me.”
Nora: “Then forget it.”
Little Psycho: “No, you have to ask!” He was extremely curious about what questions his little servant wanted to ask.
Little Psycho: “Ask! I can answer you a question for free!”
Nora was waiting for this sentence. “Why must I have a child?”
The moment this question was asked, the other party replied.
After seeing that reply, Nora’s eyes widened in shock…
