The doctor let out a long sigh. “Yeah, she’s fine. The bleeding has stopped, and she’s in stable condition now. For now, she will have to stay in the hospital and be observed for a week. Also, you must pay close attention. Until her next cycle of period occurs, you mustn’t sleep with each other,” the doctor said seriously.
Sebastian Brenand nodded.
“Also, don’t let her eat anything spicy or overwhelming. Try to make sure she eats bland stuff for the next two days…” The doctor added.
Sebastian nodded again. He made a mental note of everything the doctor said.
Right then, Rachel Wood was brought out from the operating room. Her clothes had been replaced with a brand-new set of a blue-and-white striped hospital gown. With her face pale and her lips blue, she looked like a small, fragile flower hanging loosely by the cliff. Sebastian’s heart tightened painfully yet again.
Sebastian quickly walked up to Rachel and helped the medical staff around to bring her to her ward. After that, the medical staff connected her to various monitoring devices and an IV drip before leaving.
The only people who remained in the large ward were Sebastian and Rachel.
Sebastian could see how thin and fragile she looked on the bed. He could hardly imagine how she went to the hospital on her own to go through the abortion and returned home herself.
Thinking about this made his heart ache even more.
After about half an hour, Rachel woke up. When Sebastian saw her opening her eyes, he immediately held her hand. “Why didn’t you tell me that you were pregnant? Hmm? Why did you go through an abortion in secret?”
Rachel smiled bitterly as she looked at his face. “I didn’t want to trouble you. That’s why I secretly aborted the baby on my own.”
Sebastian felt pained by how she put him first.
“Was that why you pretended to be going through your period when you felt uncomfortable?” Sebastian asked.
“Yeah,” Rachel said and nodded.
Sebastian immediately stood up and hugged her tightly while he ruffled her hair. “Idiot. Why did you do that? Hmm?”
Why was she so nice?
Of all the women Sebastian had been with, and of all the women he was currently seeing, Rachel was the only one who behaved in such an understanding manner. Rachel was also the most foolish one among them.
Wouldn’t most women try to solicit as much money from him as possible if they became pregnant?
Even if they were to go through an abortion, they would only do it after getting paid.
However, this foolish girl… She wasn’t like that at all.
“I won’t let you get pregnant again…” Sebastian said as he hugged her tightly.
When Rachel heard this, she smiled bitterly. Just as she thought, he told her that he wouldn’t let her get pregnant again instead of asking her to give birth to his child if it were to happen. From a logical point of view, this was very normal. Rachel was only one of the women he entertained himself with.
This whole thing was a business transaction, and it only involved money. There were no feelings involved. Rachel was the only person dumb enough to get emotionally involved.
“All I went through was an abortion. Why did this happen?” Rachel asked.
“It’s caused by an abnormality during the contraction phase of your uterus,” Sebastian answered truthfully.
Rachel nodded without saying anything.
“Do you want anything to eat?” Sebastian asked.
Rachel shook her head. “I just want to sleep. You can go home…”
“I’ll stay here to look after you,” Sebastian said before tucking her under a duvet.
“You should sleep. I’ll get home to take a shower and get changed before returning here to accompany you,” he added.
Right then, Sebastian was covered in blood from head to toe. The stickiness all over his body felt horrible.
“Okay,” Rachel said while forcing a smile on her face.
After that, Sebastian walked out of the door. Rachel stopped smiling and forced herself to close her eyes to sleep.
