After all, Georgie Clementine was only a friend to Xyla Quest. Georgie had no right to interfere with Xyla’s life. Everyone had their path in life.
Georgie’s only hope was for Stanley Batton not to fall in love with Xyla. More importantly, she hoped he’d choose not to be with her. However, from the way Stanley treated Xyla, Georgie somehow felt it was only a matter of time before they got together.
When Xyla opened her Twitter account, she saw that the ordeal between Stanley and her was back in the limelight. This time, they landed on the third spot among the trendiest topics.
The topic was titled ‘#Girl on a date with Stanley Batton exposed not to be his biological sister#’.
Xyla immediately tapped into the link to check it out. The comments section was flooded.
“Rich people are really pitiful and pathetic… To appear decent, they are not willing to tell the truth even if their husbands are cheating on them.”
“Xyla Quest is such a hypocrite, isn’t she? I can’t believe she would stay in a marriage like that just to save her face.”
“Although I want to yell at that guy, he’s too handsome. I can’t bring myself to do it.”
“Xyla Quest is such a pitiful woman…”
Xyla had become the subject of pity for everyone else. Suddenly, she felt a sharp pain in the bottom right of her abdomen. She immediately lifted her shirt to examine her wound. On the surface, her wound seemed fine. However, she didn’t feel very well in her stomach.
Georgie seemed worried. “What’s wrong? Is your wound uncomfortable?”
“I just feel something awful in my stomach,” Xyla said.
“Oh god. Could something have gone wrong? Let’s get it checked at the hospital right away,” Georgie said with panic written all over her face.
“It just stings a little. Let’s go after dinner, ” Xyla said.
“No!” Georgie insisted as she headed into the kitchen.
“Five, come out here for a second,” she called out.
Stanley, who was on the phone with Catherine, hung up when he heard Georgie. He turned around and walked quickly out of the kitchen. “What’s up?”
“Xyla says her stomach is a little upset. I suspect something had gone wrong during her surgery. Let’s go to the hospital now, ” Georgie said.
Stanley quickly stepped forward and picked up a thin blanket from the couch before draping it over Xyla’s shoulders. After that, he quickly picked her up and brought her outside.
Georgie followed closely behind.
After they had arrived at the hospital, Xyla was diagnosed with an infection in her abdominal cavity. She needed to be hospitalized for a few days.
While Georgie sorted out the hospitalization procedures, Stanley carried Xyla to a VIP ward for an IV drip while being accompanied by a medical staff group. Stanley finally stood up after the IV drip was completed. “What do you two want for dinner? I’ll get it,” he asked as he looked at Xyla and Georgie.
“Five Batton, I just want to eat the braised pork you make,” Xyla said.
“I’ll go home and prepare it,” Stanley said before directly putting on his jacket.
“Please look after Xyla for now. I’ll be back soon,” Stanley looked at Georgie and said.
Georgie nodded while Stanley turned around and left. As Xyla watched him leave, she felt a mix of emotions.
Not long after Stanley left, someone knocked on the door.
