May Conner was leaning against Jeremy Quest, and she could hear exactly what was said over the phone. Her pupils instantly shrank, and tears rolled down her cheeks. She quickly grabbed Jeremy’s phone and put it on loudspeaker.
“What did you just say? What do you mean, she’s about to die? What have you done to my daughter?” May grew more and more agitated as she spoke, and her whole body was trembling toward the end of her sentence. The veins around her neck were apparent, and her face was flushed red.
She practically hissed when she ended her sentence. Jeremy’s eyes were filled with panic as he listened carefully.
The Sullivan family was stunned. None of them had expected to hear such news.
Xyla was equally filled with shock, and her eyes were wide with disbelief.
“Here’s what happened. Since a few days ago, she has been out of sorts, and the psychiatrist diagnosed her with severe depression. She’s been in psychotherapy for the past two days, and there was always someone watching over her. But just before breakfast, she suddenly stabbed her carotid artery with a fork. She then screamed that she didn’t want to live anymore and even refused to let us approach her, so our prison guards had no choice but to surround her and forcibly take her to the hospital. She’s in critical condition right now, and if anything gets out of hand, she could die…” The man on the other end of the call said seriously.
At this moment, everyone couldn’t believe their ears. May was completely frozen on the couch. Panting, she grabbed at the couch cushions and held the phone tightly as she continued to scream into the phone. “Why didn’t you tell us that my daughter was in such a state? And why didn’t you look after her? If she dies, I want all of you buried with her!”
Jeremy’s face was instantly drained of color. Despite all the wrong things Emily Quest had done, she was still his daughter. They were connected by blood, and at this point, how could he, as her father, he indifferent about the situation?
The only thing on his mind now was that his daughter was going to die, and what she did in the past no longer mattered.
Xyla was in deep shock for a long time. She could not return to her senses even after a long while.
“I’m sorry. It’s our fault. We’re at the municipal hospital,” the police officer said.
May ended the call angrily and ran right out of the house like a mad person. Jeremy followed her close behind. Right after that, Bailey Ronson pushed Julian Sullivan in his wheelchair and quickly chased after Jeremy. Tony Sullivan and Tom Sullivan, seeing that they had all left, followed along.
Although Tom didn’t want to go with them, his parents seemed eager to go. Hence, he had no choice but to follow them.
Xyla put on her coat and went out with the group. With something major like this happening, she was afraid that she would be criticized as Emily’s sister if she didn’t see Emily.
It wasn’t long before they arrived outside the emergency room of the municipal hospital.
Six prison guards were sitting on the bench, and they immediately nodded politely when they saw the Quest family and the Sullivan family.
Xyla was the only one who nodded in response, while the others didn’t even glance at these correctional officers.
Emily was being resuscitated as everyone sat on the benches on both sides of the hallway.
After May sat down, she cuddled Jeremy as she cried unceasingly. Jeremy’s heart was already hurting. Watching May cry like this made it hurt even more. Soon, tears began to well up in his eyes, too.
