“Ms. Craw, have some tea.” The caretaker handed Luca a cup of warm tea.“Thank you.” Luca sat on the sofa, looking at the couple. They looked fine, and they did not look unwell.“Mr. Norman, Mrs. Norman, how do you feel today?” Luca asked caringly.“Great. We don’t feel dizzy anymore. Don’t worry.” Jack knew Luca was worried about them, so he quickly comforted her.“Glad to hear that. Did the doctor say anything?” Luca asked and turned to look at the caretaker at the same time.The caretaker replied, “The doctor gave Mr. and Mrs. Norman thorough physical examinations. The results are good. There’s no internal bleeding in the brain, and their bodies function well. It’s just that there are some bruises. They’ll be fine after resting for a while. It’s a fortune in misfortune.”Luca nodded. Jack and Queenie were not seriously injured because of the incident. It could have been worse.Then, Luca said, “Mr. Norman, Mrs. Norman, you’ll be able to get well soon.”“Yes. I think so too.
Leia's current behavior was a pain in the neck. The hospital was planning to improve the security of the VIP floor. The head nurse had complained to Jack before. Even the most difficult news reporter she met was not as difficult as Leia. The security guards and nurses on duty dared not to take her lightly. They were worried that they would accidentally let Leia slip into the ward.Johann even said that they would include Leia’s name in the hospital’s blacklist if they could.Queenie heaved a sigh and said, “That’s true…”Luca listened to their conversation. She suddenly felt sorry for them. Leia had gone over the top and done so many bad things. She did not deserve Queenie’s love! “Come on, stop sighing. She’s not young anymore. Besides, she gets an allowance every month. She’ll be fine.” Jack comforted her. Was Leia’s health not the reason why Queenie wanted to go home so badly? They could not let Leia know their condition now. That was why they could only stay in the h
Queenie could not help but wonder when she saw Jack’s attitude. “Aren’t you fond of Luca? What’s with your reaction now that I’m suggesting her becoming our god-daughter?”“Perhaps Luca won’t want to? Besides, Leia gets jealous easily. If we acknowledge Luca as our god-daughter, what will she think?” Jack immediately brought up the subject of Leia getting jealous when he noticed Queenie’s intentions.Queenie fell silent when he mentioned Leia.If they really acknowledged Luca as their god-daughter, Leia would be jealous of Luca judging from her personality.Queenie shook her head and said, “Forget about it.”It set Jack’s mind at ease when Queenie gave up on the idea. After all, Luca was their biological daughter. There was no need to acknowledge her as their god-daughter.“I didn’t know you still cared about Leia.” Queenie heaved a sigh.Jack was stunned for a moment. He was overwhelmed with complicated feelings for a minute or two.He initially thought of making an excuse for
“Okay. Then remember to remind her to take the medicine half an hour later,” said Luca attentively.“I will,” replied the caretaker as she kept the empty lunchbox away.“Ms. Rayne, I should leave and go back to work. Cooperate with the doctors and receive your treatment. Don’t be afraid. Medical technology is advanced now. You’ll be fine.” Luca knew what Wanda had in mind. Hence, every word she said was to comfort her.“Okay. Off you go.” Wanda’s heart was warm. She did not know why Luca cared for her so much.After Luca left, the caretaker could not help but ask, “Ms. Rayne, is she your relative? Your niece?”“No, she’s not.” Wanda shook her head. She had mentioned to the caretaker that she had a niece.However, her niece was currently abroad. She could not come back. That was why Wanda thought no one would come to visit her.Therefore, when Luca showed up and showed Wanda some concern, the caretaker thought Luca was Wanda’s niece.Still, Luca had indeed warmed Wanda’s heart
Therefore, it did not matter if they were looking at it from Luca's or Queenie's perspective. Handing the recovered surveillance footage to the police was not a good idea.Luca agreed with him and nodded.“Would you like to follow me to the hospital tonight?” Luke asked her.Luca wanted to know why he wanted to head to the hospital. "Is it that urgent?" “Queenie is looking for Leia all day long. I think we should let her know what kind of person Leia is as soon as possible.” Luke leaned back in his chair and looked at her. Today, Jack texted Luke and complained to him that he was running out of ideas to stop Queenie from looking for Leia. Leia was unreachable by phone, so Queenie wanted to get discharged from the hospital as soon as possible.What Luca and Jack said to her today was useless."But the kids…" Luca did not want to see Queenie upset.“Aunt Neile is only getting off work later. The maid can stay a little longer. We’ll head to the hospital after dinner. Tommy and
“Then why did you call me…” asked the police officer, helplessly trailing off.“I’m wondering what the progress is with my parents’ assault case. Has there been any evidence on who they were and what their move was?” Leia needed to deduce if the police officers had found out that Matysh was behind this.Matysh had already given her the money. Leia no longer wanted anything to do with him,She was worried that Matysh would tell on her if they caught Matysh.“We’re still looking into it, and I’m not supposed to share any details. Once we find something, we’ll announce it to the public,” answered the police officer.“Again “Again…” Leia rolled her eyes. “Do you think I’m a fool?” “I’m sorry but it’s the rules,” said the police officer.“I don’t care about the rules. The fact of the matter is, my parents are injured and it’s because of these people, right? Now you’re telling me that you can’t tell me anything, even though you’re looking into it. How am I supposed to explain to th
"Was it Leia who opened the door for them?" Queenie was stunned as she watched the video footage. Then, she glanced at the time shown in the image.Her face turned pale white. She looked up at Luke to ask for his confirmation.“Yes.” nodded Luke.Queenie shook her head, refusing to believe what she just saw. While Leia had hurt her before, she promised she would never do it again.They must stay together as a family. However, as Luke showed her the video, showing her that the alarm was not triggered because Leia had welcomed them in.Not only was Leia trying to harm Luca, but she intended to hurt both of them too.“How could it be Leia…” mumbled Queenie.“The police have the surveillance footage on the day of the incident, but it’s different from this one,” uttered Luke, observing Queenie’s reaction attentively. “The surveillance footage that the police have has been doctored. Rain noticed the footage on that day was the exact same as the days before. Even the sprouts were mov
“It was my request.” admitted Jack, clearing his throat. “On the first day we were admitted to the hospital, I woke up and asked Dr. Park not to let her in. I was worried she’d disturb you.”“Dear, you knew Leia had something to do with this on the first day, didn’t you?” speculated Quennie.“Yes.” nodded Jack. “That’s why I asked them to stop her from coming in. I was worried she’d continue to hurt you.” Queenie let out a long, deep sigh. “I understand. I’ll leave this to you.”Jack and Luke exchanged glances with each other.Queenie seemed to have dealt with it better than they had expected. “I’m tired,” said Queenie.Luke nodded. He had told her everything and told her everything she should have known too. “Have a good rest. We’re leaving.” Luke turned to look at Luca."Drive safe." Jack walked them to the wardroom door and watched them leave, only then did he turn around to look at Queenie, who was lost in her thoughts.Queenie appeared to be calm in front of Luke and
