The two went straight to the hotel and bought some fruit baskets on the way.
When Alder appeared in front of the hospital bed again, he saw Saul reading a newspaper.
“Mr. Jefferson, it seems that you are recovering well!”
Upon hearing Alder’s voice, Saul hastily put down the newspaper in his hand.
Jamie said with a big smile on his face, “Thanks to you, I’m completely out of danger now…”
“Mr. Jefferson, you are welcome. I am thrilled to be able to hear the good news of your recovery.“
Alder put the fruit and flower basket on the bedside table, but Saul stared at Celine next to him.
“Mr. Laine, who is this? Why haven’t I heard you mention her? Is she your…”
When Alder heard this, he quickly interrupted him. “Mr. Jefferson, don’t talk nonsense… This is Celine Miss Maynard. In fact, she is the one who saved your oil field this time!”
Saul was stunned for a moment as if he could not believe his ears. “What did you say? She saved my oil field?”
“That’s right, we saved your oil field. It’s all thanks to Miss Maynard!”
Alder took advantage of the opportunity to tell Saul about the recent events.
When Saul heard that, he began to treat Celine with incomparable respect.
“I see… Miss Maynard is really my great benefactor!”
“Mr. Jefferson, you‘re being polite. I only came here for Alder’s sake. It’s just a small effort from my part.” Celine’s understatement gave Alder all the credit again.
“That’s right, it’s all thanks to Alder this time. I don’t even know how to repay you. Now that I’m still in the hospital, I need to tell you in advance that the oilfield will be yours in the future… And it doesn’t stop there.”
“I will leave all my property here to you. I’ve reached that age, so it would be great if you can guarantee me annual dividends enough for me to go back and enjoy my old age…” Saul sighed with emotion, his voice was full of loneliness and unwillingness.
Naturally, Alder would not agree so easily. This gift came too suddenly, and it was too much.
“Mr. Jefferson, are you kidding me? You just escaped danger. Before you’re discharged, I will take care of all your property for you. However, when you are well, you will surely flourish again and make a comeback!”
Alder made a good speech, but Saul just nodded with a smile.
“I know you’re trying to comfort me, but I’ve made up my mind to quit. The more I live, the more I figure I should accept my fate. Maybe I’m destined to have such an ending…”
Saul told Alder that he took a big risk when he dared to come abroad. At that time, everyone persuaded him not to do this, but Saul made this decision against all opinions. Aside from believing in his own vision at that time, he also had a reading.
Saul went to a fortune teller to get someone to read his fortune.
The other party pointed out that Saul’s fortune was abroad, but he would have a hurdle at the age of fifty-eight. If he could not get through it, he would die. If he did, he would enjoy a new chapter of life.
After Saul said this, he looked at Alder with a smile.
“My fifty-eighth birthday is three months away. It seems that the fortune teller was right. All his words have come true… Now that I’m out of danger, it’s time to turn my life around… Yesterday’s cause is today’s effect. What goes around comes around, and it’s time for me to start a new journey…”
