She did not stay in the villa for long. After informing Reny and the others, she was about to set out for the hospital again.
However, Xander stopped her. He tossed the car keys to her and said, “Take my car. I’ll call the mechanic over later. Your car was in an accident, so it’s safer to get it fixed.”
Melanie took him up on his offer and left.
Her grandfather had just finished dinner when she arrived. The caregiver showed Melanie the results of yesterday’s examination. There were still no changes.
She asked the caregiver, “Did Dr. Wells say anything when he came over today?”
Melanie put the test results away. She needed to talk to Dr. Wells again.
If Howard really could not help, she would have to change doctors.
Melanie had something on her mind, so she was not paying attention when she walked around the corner. As a result, she accidentally bumped into someone.
She apologized profusely, only to hear a familiar voice. “Melanie?”
Melanie paused. She looked up and saw that it was Lee.
Instinctively, she glanced behind Lee, expecting to see Eugene there.
Lee also noticed her reaction. He smiled. “Mr. Scott is still talking to someone. I just came out to take a call.”
Melanie asked, “Is he meeting someone here?”
“LeapCo is organizing a public health checkup soon. Mr. Scott came over to discuss the project.
Nodding, she walked past Lee and headed for Dr. Wells‘ office.
There was a conversation going on inside. As soon as Melanie pushed open the door, she saw Eugene talking to Dr. Wells.
The conversation stopped abruptly when they heard the door open. Eugene glanced over.
When he saw Melanie, his face was expressionless, and there was a cold look in his eyes.
Dr. Wells was taken aback. “Aren’t you Mr. Lancaster’s family member? You came at the right time. Mr. Scott was just saying ”
He was halfway through his sentence when Eugene interrupted him in his cool, businesslike voice. “Dr. Wells, LeapCo will accept all of your earlier suggestions. I look forward to working with you.‘
Dr. Wells was a little flattered. “No, I really admire your foresight and willingness to
contribute to the good of our society, Mr. Scott. Our hospital is honored to be working with you.”
“That’s good to know.” Eugene nodded, his expression unchanged.
Dr. Wells looked at him, then at Melanie, as if he wanted to say something.
His lips twitched. In the end, he just turned to Melanie and asked, “What can I do for you?”
Melanie had been hinting that she did not want to acknowledge Eugene’s existence. She cleared her throat. “I just wanted to ask… If Dr. Hel can’t do it, is there another doctor who can perform this surgery? Preferably someone with a lower level of risk.”
“There are many doctors who can perform this surgery, but as I said, Dr. Hel is an expert in this field. His success rate is very high.” Dr. Wells reminded Melanie, “Every year, there are many people who want Dr. Hel as their chief surgeon. If you ask me…
At this point, he suddenly thought of something and turned to look at Eugene. Then, he said to Melanie, “It’s normal for an expert like Dr. Hel to have his own principles, but perhaps you can ask Mr. Scott for help? Dr. Hel is his uncle.”
Dr. Wells did not know that Melanie and Eugene knew each other.
Melanie could see herself reflected in Eugene’s unperturbed eyes. He looked at her with that cold, mocking expression on his face that only she could see.
His tone was flat. “You need my help?”
