Naomi shook her head and said, “No need. Go on, Mom.”
“Alright, I’ll be back soon. If anything comes up midway, just call the nurse.”
“I know. You can relax.”
Naomi was perfectly fine, save for her hand injury.
The assured Donna quickly left with Naomi’s phone to avoid any unexpected situations, making it easier for her to make a call.
Swiftly, the door closed, and the room fell silent.
Naomi gazed at the rich night sky as she reflected on the events of the past few days. It felt so surreal.
Just like the touch of Scott’s hand before she got out of the car.
Naomi looked at her hand wrapped in gauze. More than 10 hours had passed. However, recalling that steady touch, his warmth seemed to linger on her fingertips. Her fingertips. moved slightly, and Naomi smiled, once again looking at the night outside.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, she should be able to leave the hospital the day after tomorrow. After leaving the hospital, they might never meet again.
Naomi wanted to walk. She was not as sleepy, having taken a nap in the afternoon. She wanted to wait outside Donna.
With that, she got out of bed and put on her shoes.
Knock, knock! Two light knocks echoed.
Naomi paused and looked up. “Come in.”
The door opened. With bandages on her head and wearing a patient’s gown, Sasha walked in, followed by Olivia.
Naomi was slow to recognize Sasha, but when she saw Olivia, she remembered.
Her gaze shifted slightly as she looked at the two, especially at Sasha, whose slightly pale face exuded a remarkable spirit.
“Why isn’t anyone else here?” Sasha casually walked in with her hands in her pockets, glancing around the ward. When she did not see anyone else, a cunning glint twinkled in her
Naomi stood up and watched as Sasha approached. “Is there something you need?”
With a lollipop in her mouth, Sasha turned her gaze toward Naomi upon hearing her words. She narrowed her eyes and smiled. “Aunt Olivia said you saved me. Now that I’m awake, it’s only right that I have to thank you in person.”
Saying this, Sasha stood in front of Naomi, her lips spreading into a grin on both sides.” Thank you!”
Two crisp words echoed, a smile on her face as if genuinely grateful to Naomi. However, her
posture, with hands in her pockets and a lollipop in her mouth, showed no sign of bowing or gratitude.
Naomi’s eyelashes flickered. With a slight smile on her face, she said, “No need to thank me.”
Sasha raised an eyebrow, seemingly surprised by Naomi’s calm demeanor. She narrowed her eyes at Naomi, who glanced at her. Then, Naomi shifted her gaze to the approaching Olivia.
Olivia was also observing everything here, deep in thought. Sensing Naomi’s
deep in thought. Sensing Naomi’s gaze, she looked
over. Their eyes met.
Naomi smiled, saying, “Ms. Olivia, thank you for bringing this child to express gratitude. I accept your goodwill.”
Everyone was understanding, and Naomi’s words conveyed that there was no need for them to keep coming to thank her. She and the Lawson family had nothing to do with each other. They did not have to remind her repeatedly that she and Scott were divorced.
Olivia smirked and said, “Your words seem to suggest that our gratitude is unwarranted.”
Naomi was stunned. She did not mean that. She just did not want Olivia to come here repeatedly, forcing herself into a difficult position.
It should not be like this. Nonetheless, upon reflection, her words seemed to imply just that. Naomi paused and apologized, “I’m sorry.”
Olivia’s expression twitched slightly. Seeing Naomi’s sincere demeanor, she seemed surprised that Naomi could be so accommodating.
At that moment, Sasha suddenly spoke up.
