Chapter 331 You Guys Got Back Together
Hector knew Calista probably saw something. However, he was unbothered by it at all.
“It’s nothing. Just a minor injury and it’ll heal after two days.
“The bandage on your chest is already stained with blood. Is this a minor injury?”
Calista was just about to bend down to lift his blanket. Her hands were stopped by him when they were
about to land on the edge of his blanket.
Helplessly, he said, “Don’t be so hasty. What if I wasn’t wearing any pants?”
Calista remained silent. His hands were scorching hot, which was nothing like a normal body
temperature. She whipped her hand out and felt his forehead instead.
“You’re having a fever. How long has it been since you’ve changed your bandage?”
The top floor was already hot. There wasn’t even an air conditioner. All the place had was a fan. Calista felt scalding hot even when she’d only been here for a few minutes, let alone Hector, who was injured.
Hector was extremely frail and drained of energy. He had been in a semi–coma for the past few days. He
wouldn’t even have woken up if it wasn’t for his phone ringing.
His tone grew softer as he spoke with all his strength. His eyes lowered as if he was about to fall asleep
any moment soon.
“It hasn’t been long. Was it three, or four days? Maybe it was one week.”
The more Calista listened to him, the more she was annoyed. The veins on her forehead were throbbing She could tell it wasn’t a minor injury from the blood stain on his bandage.
Tossing his t–shirt to him, she said, “Put it on. I’m sending you to the hospital.”
The t–shirt covered Hector’s face. He didn’t bother to move it away from him. Maybe he was just being lazy, or he was that ill. His muffled voice came under the t–shirt.
don’t wanna go to the hospital,” he uttered,
Calista pulled the t–shirt away from his face, She glared at him.
by now, judging by your high fever, Cart your
Hector’s hand, which was of a scorching temperature, held on Calista’s finger.
“Calista, we can’t go to the hospital,” he said in a low tone, with a hinge of frailness.
Calista was stunned.
She asked curiously, “Why?”
Looking at her, Hector apologized.
“Sorry, I can’t say.”
It’s fine,” Calista replied as she finally understood what he meant by that.
His injury was probably related to his mission. It must’ve been unsafe for him to go to the hospital.
“Then can I send you back home?”
His injury should be treated in no time. The Calloway family should be able to find a trustworthy doctor.
“I can’t go back home either.”
“Then do you know anyone who’s trustable and close with you?” Calista asked.
She wasn’t hoping for a desirable answer. If he did have that one friend, he wouldn’t be stuck in such a
Not only did he not have anyone to take care of him, he also didn’t have anyone to help him take the trash
Unexpectedly, Hector said, “Yeah. It’s you.”
Calista was at a loss for words. He closed his eyes.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s inconvenient for you. After all, I was told that I could live a long life since I was a kid Look, it’s been days and I’m still perfectly alive.”
Yeah, you’re alive, but also you’re on the verge of dying,” snapped Calista. She gritted her teeth as she
I can’t drive my car here
wode, Yeah, I can
In that instant, Calista immediately went to pull Hector up. However, it wasn’t possible for her, with this
little strength, to help a fully grown adult man up.
Fortunately, he leaned against the wall so they wouldn’t fall together.
“Sorry, I’ve been sleeping for too long. My legs aren’t working properly.”
When they were heading downstairs, Calista’s knees were about to give out. Hector was putting half of
his entire weight on her.
The sun’s rays shone in through the vents. The cemented floor was scorching hot. Calista was hot and
tired. Sweat was trickling down her forehead and landed right on her thick lashes.
She didn’t dare to lift her head as she was worried that she might get the sweat in her eyes.
“Didn’t you say you can walk?”
Hector had a tall and imposing figure. When his arms were wrapped around her with his body leaning into
her, it seemed like she was being held in his embrace.
“Yeah,” replied Hector, his voice tinged with agony.
His body was glazed with sweat as he spoke slowly, “If I can’t walk, how is it possible for you to help me
Calista was speechless. What he said made a lot of sense. She couldn’t rebuke him so she’d rather stay
silent to save her energy.
After a painful effort, she finally got Hector in the car. She was so exhausted that she needed a couple of
tissues to wipe her sweat off her face and neck.
She revved the engine and lowered the air conditioner’s wind strength to a minimum level. She was
worried that Hector might die from the sudden temperature change.
Seeing how Calista was only bothered with wiping her sweat and being completely ignorant of the state
he was in, Hector wanted to tease her for a bit.

She wasn’t sure whether he caused trouble for anyone. If she got him into trouble, then she shouldn’t have brought him out of the rental house in the first place.
Calista stopped the car in front of the main mansion.
“We’re here. Get out of the car,” she said as she turned around and gave Hector, who was still sleeping
soundly a nudge.
He opened his eyes, and the blurry look in his eyes cleared up as he saw the sight before him.
Tightening his lips slightly, he asked, “Is this Lucian’s place?”
If it wasn’t for him being in such a weak state, his fists would be clenched tight by now.
Although it was just a part of the manor, he could tell how exquisite this place was from the furnishing. Even the tiles on the ground radiated a distinct sheen.
“Yeah,” Calista answered.
Hector raised his eyebrows, his eyes dimming
“Did you guys get back together?”
