Someone pushed Aunt Olivia to the floor, and it made a loud noise. I could feel my heart tremble just hearing it. Could she have a concussion? Doctor, did you run a CT scan on her skull?”
Sasha spoke quickly after the doctor finished his examination.
The doctor looked at Sasha, then at Scott, who had been silent and attentive to Olivia. He said, “We ran a full–body examination and found no signs of a concussion. Of course, if you’re still worried, we can check again.”
“Oh, she’s been checked? I thought it hadn’t been done yet. Well, let’s stay in the hospital for a few days. The fall was quite severe, and if something happens later, it could be serious. Right, Uncle Scott?” Sasha looked at Scott while saying this.
Scott had been silent the whole time. He did not ask what happened, nor did he show any signs of nervousness or concern. He remained silent with a deep and cold expression. No one knew what he was thinking.
When Sasha asked this question, everyone looked at Scott.
Scott finally looked away from Olivia and met Sasha’s eyes. He then said, “What does the doctor suggest?”
His gaze turned to the doctor.
The doctor said, “I also think it’s better to stay in the hospital for a few days for observation.”
“Then let’s stay in the hospital.”
Sasha immediately blinked at Olivia, a triumphant expression on her face.
Olivia smiled. The thorn that had been stuck in her heart for three years was finally pulled out.
Scott cared about her… He always had.
Olivia’s hospital admission procedures were quickly completed, and Scott left with his phone in hand.
Sasha accompanied Olivia in the hospital room. She watched as the door closed, then went outside to check. Once she confirmed that Scott had left, she quickly ran back and sat on the bed.
“Well? Are you satisfied with the outcome?” Sasha crossed her arms, looking quite pleased.
A smile adorned Olivia’s face, thoroughly content. However, Scott’s earlier gaze flashed in her mind–those deep eyes seemed to penetrate her heart, revealing all her thoughts.
Her heart trembled, and she said, “Don’t do this again. It could be troublesome if Scott finds out.”
Sasha snorted. “I’m not afraid! I’m a very close relative of Uncle Scott, and you are someone he cares about the most. What could he do to us? He won’t do anything, I can assure you that. My uncle may look staridoffish, but he’s very protective. His stern, impartial appearance is just
a show for the outside world.”
Sasha was young, but she saw things with remarkable Insight especially when it came to people she knew. She understood them profoundly.
The instability in Olivia’s heart was instantly dissolved by Sasha’s words, leaving behind no trace of worry. ‘Yes, he may seem indifferent, but he’s deeply sentimental.‘
Various images flashed before her eyes for a moment. Olivia tightened her grip on her hands as she narrowed her eyes.
For the sake of being with him, she could disregard everything.
Scott left the hospital room, entered the elevator, and dialed a phone number.
“Check tonight’s surveillance footage on the nineteenth floor of the hospital’s surgical department from eight–thirty to nine–thirty.”
The call ended, and Scott lowered his phone. He was confronted with a pale, almost paper–like face on the screen, displaying pain and vulnerability.
His fingertips moved slightly, and his gaze gradually darkened.
