Xyla Quest seemed very focused as she continued to examine Stanley Batton’s elbow professionally. Meanwhile, Stanley sat cooperatively, silently allowing her to examine him.
The light shining against her face from the outside made her appear even gentler. Despite the large coat that hung over her shoulders, she did not look any less attractive.
After repeatedly examining his elbow, Xyla looked up at Stanley.
“I don’t think there’s any displacement or crack in your bones. However, just as a precautionary measure, we should get an X-ray for it at the hospital. Sometimes, it’s impossible to tell if there’s a crack in the bones from the outside,” Xyla said.
“Okay,” Stanley said.
“The cops will be here soon. We’ll go to the hospital after we explain to them what went on here,” Xyla said.
“Alright,” Stanley answered.
“Thank you for taking the hit for me,” Xyla said softly.
When Xyla recalled how Stanley took the bat’s hit without hesitation, she felt a warm sensation spread in her heart.
“Don’t worry about it,” he replied calmly as if it was not a big deal.
“Also, I’m sorry,” Xyla frowned apologetically.
“What for?” Stanley looked at her inquisitively. However, he had the usual cold look on his face.
“If I hadn’t asked you to act as my husband, Stanley Batton, this would not have happened to you,” Xyla explained.
“I accepted your money. Therefore, I needed to do my part. There’s nothing for you to be sorry about,” Stanley said nonchalantly.
“Although that makes logical sense, I’m still sorry that you got injured,” Xyla said.
“It’s alright,” Stanley said.
“You should be careful from now on, just in case he takes any further action, ” Xyla said. She was a little worried about what could happen to him in the future.
“Don’t worry,” Stanley said calmly. His facial expression made it clear he was not concerned at all.
“Bring a few more men with you whenever you head out,” Xyla warned with a serious look on her face.
“Done,” Stanley said.
“If you can’t handle it, give me a call,” Xyla added.
When Stanley heard this, he began smiling playfully. Slowly, he shifted his gaze to her face.
Her words had piqued his interest.
Ever since Stanley had grown up, he had been perceived as the man capable of doing anything and everything. All this while, it had been other people coming to him for help. No one had ever told him to contact them when he could not handle a problem.
“What’s the matter?” Xyla seemed confused.
“Okay,” Stanley said calmly after looking at her for a long while.
A few minutes later, the police arrived.
After Xyla and Stanley described what happened to the police, the men were taken away by the police.
Xyla proceeded to drive Stanley to the nearest hospital to get his bones checked. Once the doctors could confirm that Stanley was fine, Xyla requested for medical prescriptions before they both returned to the car.
“Where should I send you to?” Xyla asked while she drove away from the hospital.
“Peace District in Swamp Zone,” Stanley said.
Swamp Zone was considered an old neighborhood on the outskirts of Atlantis. Since Xyla knew the location, she drove there directly without needing to check for directions.
Meanwhile, Stanley silently sat on the passenger seat as he observed the scene along the way.
After two hours, Xyla finally stopped the car in front of Stanley’s place. Xyla opened the drawer and retrieved the medicine she bought earlier.
“There are anti-inflammatory medicine and painkillers in there. Follow the instructions and take them as necessary. As for the Chinese medicine, boil them and place them over the injured spot so that it will recover quicker,” she said sternly.
“Forget it. I’ll come up with you. You might not remember what I said. I’ll boil the Chinese medicine for you once and make a note of all the portions of Chinese medicine you will need to use,” Xyla said.
“Okay,” Stanley answered.
After that, he entered the building with Xyla.
There was no lift in the building. The two had to walk all the way up to Room 508 on the fifth floor where he lived.
