At night. Old Master Crawford was dressed grandly in a bespoke suit, as though he was attending an event. He seemed much more spirited than other days. Bianca thought that the atmosphere at the dining table was different. She noticed that Old Master Crawford would steal glances at her, as though comparing her with someone else. Sometimes he nodded, but sometimes he sighed. Bianca was confused. She looked curiously at Luke, but Luke smiled and said nothing. He scooped some salad for her and said, "You should eat more." Before she could take a bite, Old Master Crawford put a fish fillet on her plate. Bianca looked at Old Master Crawford with surprise. "Thank you, Grandfather…" "Mm," Old Master Crawford replied, "You're too thin, and you should eat more fish. That'll be good for you and your baby. I hope that the baby will be as smart as Lanie and Rainie too." He could guess from his grandson's hint that Bianca might be the long-lost Ms. Norman. That explained the 180-
Norman residence. Leia had been having nightmares for the past few days. She dreamed that her misdeed had been exposed and her adoptive parents abandoned her! She also dreamed that Bianca returned to the Norman household and gloated over her like a victor, while she was reduced to a shivering and hungry orphan, being bullied on the streets! Leia's mental condition had not been stable since the reunion banquet. Queenie dared not ask too many questions. She stayed at home to accompany her daughter, though she did not stop sighing. One late morning, Leia woke up from her nightmares once again. She was drenched in sweat. The homely and comfortable room was eerily silent and deserted. Like a lunatic, she dashed out of the room barefoot. The caretaker in the living was shocked when she saw Leia rushing out with her long hair scattered all over her face. "What happened, Ms. Norman?" Leia looked around but did not see her mother. She grabbed the caretaker's collar in panic. "
Bianca was shocked when she heard Sue's call for help. The paintbrush slipped from her hand and fell on the floor. She was too preoccupied with the call to pick it up. "Where are you now, Sue? What happened? Send me your location!" "I'm at Fra…" Sue was panting as though she was in the middle of running. Before she could finish speaking, an arrogant voice could be heard behind her. "Catch her and bring her to the hospital! If you stop struggling now, Sue Carter, you might be able to keep one of those two b*stards! If you remain stubborn, I won't show any mercy!" Bianca thought that the female voice sounded familiar, but she could not remember who it was. She was about to ask Sue what was going on when she heard Sue roaring furiously at that woman, "My babies are not due yet, Bailey Quarrington! I won't sacrifice the lives of my babies to save your son. Give it up, Bailey. As long as I'm alive, you won't get to lay a finger on my babies!" "Looks like I can't talk any sense i
Sue was brought to the operating table. Tears of despair slid from the corner of her eyes like a broken dam. At that moment, she hoped that Jason would come and save her. However, that man must prioritize saving his son, just like Bailey. They wanted the bone marrow of her babies. She actually felt happy when she found out that Jason was the father of her babies. Before she could properly process the emotions, he forced her to make such a cruel decision. How ironic! He was so caring toward her and the babies. She was even beginning to fall for him, thinking that he was the man for her. In the end, she found out that it was all a ridiculous farce. She was once deceived by her ex-boyfriend, and it seemed like she had not learned her lesson. There was no one else to blame other than herself. Sue was tied in an embarrassing spread-eagle position on the operating table. Her mouth was sealed with clear packing tape. She found it hard to even sob. "Give her the Pitocin injec
Jason drove the bike at maximum speed, running all the red lights along the way. In his single-minded dash to the hospital, many cars swerved abruptly to avoid him and nearly ran into other cars. "D*mn it, do you have a death wish?" "Don't trouble others if you want to die, you idiot!" Jason did not hear the angry curses from the other drivers. The only thing in his mind was Sue's gaze on despair and the puddle of blood between her feet. He could not deny that he once had the idea of extracting the babies' bone marrow for Shane, but he quickly dismissed the thought when he knew from the doctor that such a procedure posed a high risk to the baby. Sue did not know about that. She thought that Jason would rather sacrifice her babies to save the life of his son with his ex-wife. He knew that she hated him and that the babies in her womb were very important to her. If Bailey really did something to the babies, he was afraid that Sue would never recover from it. When he thoug
Bailey's jealousy caused her to be rough on the baby in her arms. The newborn baby struggled to breathe. Eventually, she started bawling loudly again. Sue's already pale face turned paler when she heard her child cry. Her heart was also wrenching. She began to struggle on the operating table, ignoring the intense pain in her body. "Let go of my baby, Bailey! What do you want to do with her?" She yelled hysterically. "I'm using her for her intended purpose. That is, to extract her bone marrow!" Bailey said indifferently. Then, she began to walk out of the operating theater in her four-inch heels. The baby in her arms was the elder twin. The female baby was healthy and cried very loudly. The other baby seemed weak and small. She was not going to last for long. That saved her the trouble of getting rid of that b*stard child! Sue was overwhelmed by despair when she heard that Bailey was going to extract her baby's bone marrow! She shook Jason's arm and begged him while tear
Sue was on the hospital bed receiving an intravenous transfusion. She was shaking and struggling to breathe as she looked at the newborn daughter next to her and thought of the perilous episode earlier. She gently caressed the elder twin who was fast asleep. Her lips were pale as she spoke to Bianca, "This is the elder twin. The younger twin isn't as fully developed as the elder because of the induced labor, and the doctors are still trying to save her life…" Sue's heart wrenched when she thought of her younger daughter, as though an invisible thread wrapped around her neck. Tears fell from her eyes again. Bianca hurriedly took out a napkin and wiped Sue's tears. "Your baby will be fine, Sue. You shouldn't cry after you just delivered a baby… It's when your eyes are the weakest. What happens if you ruin your eyes? Don't think that I'm exaggerating. When I was working part-time in a hospital while studying overseas, I've seen such cases with my own eyes. There was a pregnant wom
The first feeding was indeed very painful. Sue felt as though her chest was being stabbed by a needle. She was sweating buckets because of the pain, but she had to bear with it so that her baby could receive her nourishment. The pain lasted for about half an hour before breast milk started flowing. Sue was not relieved yet. Her younger baby was still in the operating theater. What would happen to her? In the evening, news came that the younger baby was safe. When the doctor placed the baby in Sue's hands, she was about to cry. The younger sister was much smaller and weaker than the healthy elder sister. Bianca breathed a sigh of relief. Fortunately, the baby was safe. Otherwise, Sue might not be able to handle the news. She patted the back of Sue's hand and comforted her, "Sue, the younger sister is weaker, and you'll have to feed her more. The most important thing for you now is to take care of yourself. Don't overwork yourself. If that happens, you won't be able to ta
