Chapter 95 She Might Be Pregnant
Lucian was leaning against his bedside in the hospital room, talking on the phone. Upon hearing a
sound, he looked up and saw Calista.
He furrowed his brows and asked, “Cade called you?”
Calista rolled her eyes irritably
“He said you were dying and asked me to sign the consent form to give up on any treatment and
have you cremated.”
She walked in and sat down on the chair next to the hospital bed.
Earlier, she had asked the doctor and learned that his stomach problems were caused by drinking
on an empty stomach. He could leave once he felt better.
Lucian tossed the phone onto the bedside table.
Calista stared at him, then reluctantly took out her phone to order some delivery. She just wanted
to quickly finish serving him his meal so they could go their separate ways.
She didn’t want to return home just to have Cade call her to come by again. She still had some self-
Lucian’s gaze fell on her. He spoke lightly.
“I might have another stomach ache by the time the food arrives. Is this how you take care of
After taking the medicine, the intense pain in his stomach had improved slightly, but it hadn’t
completely gone away and would occasionally throb.
Calista glared at him fiercely, then suddenly stood up and headed for the door without saying a
word Lucian frowned.
“Stop, where are you going?”
“To buy you some dog food,” she gritted her teeth, her tone laced with resentment.
Behind her, Lucian seemed to chuckle, but Calista had already opened the door and walked out
Following Cade’s instructions, she bought a bowl of soup without any onions from the restaurant
downstairs and headed back up.
She unpacked the food and said, “Hurry up and eat. You can go home after you finish this.”
Lucian sat still on the bed as if he were asleep. He was facing away, so Calista couldn’t see his
face. After hesitating for a few seconds, she leaned in and bent down to look.
His eyebrows were tightly furrowed and cold sweat covered his forehead, and his lips and face
were pale. He wasn’t asleep; he was clearly in severe pain!
Calista hesitated, and she asked nervously, “Lucian, is your stomach hurting again? I’ll go call the
There was a call button on the bedside table that connected to the doctor’s office. After pressing it,
the doctor arrived quickly.
The doctor examined him quickly and pressed lightly on Lucian’s stomach.
“You can put some pressure on this spot to relieve his pain. He just took medicine, so he shouldn’t
eat again in the short term. You can rub his stomach too. It might provide some relief.”
Calista remained silent. She had to buy food for him and give him a massage too?
The doctor noticed her lack of response. She didn’t seem concerned at all.
The doctor quickly became serious and urged, “Are you his family? He’s in so much pain, and yet
you seem so indifferent!”
Calista returned to her senses and apologized sincerely, “I’m sorry, I am his wife. But usually, his
mistress would do these things. I’m not very familiar with it. Where should I put pressure on?
Doctor, could you show me again?”
The doctor had just spoken out of duty because Calista appeared unconcerned about Lucian. He
didn’t expect to uncover this secret, and for a moment, his impression of Lucian changed.
He cleared his throat, withdrew his hand, and stood up straight.
“There’s no need to do so. The medication is starting to take effect, and he should feel some relief
After the doctor left, Lucian gritted his teeth and asked, “Did you do that intentionally?”
Calista raised an eyebrow at him.
“I can’t let Lily take all the credit, can I?”
Lucian felt better by night. Despite being extremely tired, Calista managed to handle his
The facilities at a private hospital were much better than the public hospital. It had bigger beds, and the room was much better lighting.
Besides, Calista had a hard time sleeping on other beds. She hoped she could catch some sleep after staying up all night. The hospital was not the appropriate place for that.
This time, she dared not leave Lucian in the middle of the road. Who knew what stunt he would pull next?
The next day, when Calista woke up, she was met with Yara’s face. She was startled, and before she could react, she hurriedly scooted back.
She scowled when she realized who it was.
She slumped back on the bed and asked, “What are you doing? It’s so early in the morning. You nearly scared the hell out of me.”
Yara sat by the bedside and sneered.
“You have the nerve to say that? You were the one that scared me. I called you so many times, and you didn’t pick up. I thought you might be so depressed after sacrificing yourself for love. It’s still early in the morning. There was no reason to be scared.”
Calista had just woken up and was still in a daze.
She instinctively reached for her phone and asked, “Sacrifice myself for love? What do you mean?”
After she got home last night, she set her phone to silent mode. Sure enough, there were several
missed calls from Yara on the screen.
Looking at the time, it was nearly four in the afternoon. Yara sneered disdainfully.
“That scumbag Lucian probably couldn’t escape karma. He was admitted to the hospital last night,
and this morning, as soon as the news came out, that bitch Lily rushed over with gifts to comfort
him. Not only did Lucian invite her in, but they also spent hours alone together in his room. Who
knows what they were up to during that time? I bet she’s even pregnant by now!”
While it might be exaggerated, it seemed quite plausible. Not done venting, Yara issued a warning.
“I’ll kill you if you dare to regret it. I can even erase all traces of romantic thoughts from your brain.
She rolled her eyes so many times Calista was starting to worry that her eyes might roll back into her head.
Calista was left speechless, so she had to change the topic.
“How did you know I was staying here?”
She hadn’t told anyone about her moving places.
“A while back, I ran into Paul at an auction, and he mentioned it,” Yara explained.
The mention of Lily made her furious, and she couldn’t help but egg her on, “Why didn’t you come to me if you didn’t have a place to stay? Were you planning to sleep under a bridge if you hadn’t encountered Paul?”
Paul had only mentioned that Calista had nowhere to stay, but he did not elaborate. However, Yara could guess it probably had something to do with that bastard, Lucian.
“Thank god, I bumped into him. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have known where to find you.”
Calista got up to freshen up.
“How did you get in?”
“There’s the emergency stairway, ” Yara crossed her arms, leaning against the bathroom doorway.
“By the way, I found out some stuff about Nikolette. Not only is she a top executive at Ronkan enterprise, but she also holds a sizable share of the company. Back then, your dad fled the country with a load of debt and penniless. He didn’t make any groundbreaking achievements abroad,
either. Can you guess where Nikolette got the money?”
