828 Gavin“s end
Ashton and Elsa's place.
Helplessly shaking his head, Ashton sighed, "Fine, if that is what you want to do. But I still think you should stay at home and rest for another six months."
"I think I have rested enough honey, I just want to do something and make use of my degree." Fixing his tie, she added, "Yushen was telling me that they are hiring, he asked me to send my resume."
Wrapping his arms around her waist, he sighed, "Alright, if that's what you want but you are not allowed to over work or skip your meals. I'll assign a chauffeur for you who will pick you up after work and I'll drop you there in the morning and—"
Cutting him off, she chuckled, "Geez wait, let me get the job first."
"Do you even have to worry about that? I'll talk to—"
"No you won't," she retorted.
Hooking her arms around his, she dragged him towards the door. "Just go to work and don't think about it."
Pulling her towards him, he pouted her lips, "Give me a goodbye kiss first."
Giving him a peck on his lips, she smiled, "Have a great day at work and don't forget to have your lunch. I am going to meet Qiang and Huiling for lunch today and then we will hang out at Qiang's place, don't forget to pick me up after work." Without waiting for his reply, she inquired, "I forgot to ask you this before, did you find out anything about Henry?"
Tucking a lock of hair behind her ears, he sighed, "Why don't we talk about this tonight?"
Kissing the top of her head, Ashton left for work.
"Hmm the heart rate is normal and the foetus is healthy too." Pausing for a while, Anna added, "It's around eight weeks old."
Looking at the screen, Ben frowned, "But where is it?" All he could see was weird lines which seemed very creepy.
Pointing towards the screen, Anna instructed, "You see this big dot like thing?" When he nodded his head, she smiled, "That is your baby."
Ben widened his eyes in shock and tightened his grip around Clara's hand, "Did you see that honey? Our baby—" he stopped midway when he realized that Clara was crying.
Scrunching his brows, he lifted her chin up. "Babe, what happened? Does it hurt somewhere?"
Burying her head on his chest, she shook her head. "No, it doesn't—"
"Then what happened?"
Pulling away, she wiped her tears away. "I just got emotional after seeing our baby, it's so tiny."
"Don't worry about that sweetheart, the baby will grow at its own speed. But now all you have to do is take care of yourself and make sure you eat well," Anna instructed.
"Aunt Anna, you know that Clara is still taking medicines and is recuperating so the baby—"
Cutting him off, Anna answered, "I understand your concern, we need to wait for the reports before I tell you anything. But according to me, everything seems normal." Glancing at her watch, she added, "The reports should be here any minute."
While Anna, Ben and Clara were busy, Mian had just finished seeing her patients and was about to leave her cabin to meet Ben and Clara in her mom's cabin when she received her a message from an unknown number.
Without thinking about anything, she opened the message only to realize that it was an MMS. After clicking on the link, a video started playing.
After a few seconds, she scrunched her brows when she saw nothing but darkness and was about to exit when suddenly Gavin's grinning face popped on the screen.
[ "Good morning Doctor Mian, what a lovely and pleasant day, isn't it?" Pausing for a while, Gavin grinned, "I know you missed me and to be honest, I missed you too. I miss beckering with you over small things everyday, it was so much fun, isn't it?"
Keeping quiet for quite some time, he sighed, "Well, we both have missed each other but today we are going to meet." Clapping his hands, he chuckled, "Hard to believe, right? But it's going to happen."
Clearing his throat, he continued, "Now you may be wondering how this is going to happen because there is no way you would voluntarily come to me or listen to me. But Dr Mian, you will have to listen to me and do everything I ask you to after seeing something. So are you ready?" ]
Throwing her hand in her mouth, Mian gasped when she saw a woman with her hands tied up with a rope which was attached to the ceiling. Her hair was left open and her head was lowered towards the ground as she was in an unconscious state. She also did not fail to notice the huge bulge in her belly.
[ "Oh pardon me, did you not recognise her?" Walking towards the woman, Gavin lifted her chin up and removed her hair which was scattered all over her face." ]
Mian felt shivers down her spine when she saw who the woman was. "Adrianna," she muttered before gulping in nervousness.
[ "Well, I assume that you recognize her. So let's cut the chase and save time Dr Mian because as you can see, my sister-in-law has very little time in her hand."
Pausing for a while, he added, "Now, I want you to switch off your phone and keep it under your desk and quietly step out of your office. There is a black car waiting for you outside the hospital, I want you to quietly board it."
Grinning from ear to ear, he smirked, "I know that you are very smart Dr Mian but please don't try to act one today. Just remember one thing, the second you try to do something smart, an innocent unborn baby will end up losing its life. So if you are planning to act smart and inform your husband then that is a big no no." Glancing at her watch, he sighed, "You have ten minutes to board the car and don't carry anything with you, the driver is going to check you." ]
SPECIAL AUTHOR'S NOTE:-
This month has been really tough for me, I felt very burnt out and was also down with cold and cough for a few days. I feel a little better today so I decided to write a couple of chapters.
I hope you all will understand, I'll update more next month and compensate for the loss :)
