Chapter 36 

After having a latenight supper, Edith was satisfied and burped on her way home

She thought she would fall asleep immediately after such a busy day

But, even after counting sheep up to one thousand and one, she couldn’t fall asleep

Lying awake, Edith stared at the ceiling, feeling gloomy

She couldn’t pinpoint the exact reason for her restlessness

Meanwhile, Gideon was also in the same state with her

Although they were in different places, both of them suffered from insomnia, watching the moon until dawn

Due to staying up all night, Edith experienced low blood sugar while searching for materials at the museum in the morning

Deborah was responsible for the museum’s event and noticed Edith couldn’t stand steadily. She quickly helped Edith sit down and handed her a piece of chocolate, saying, You should take a break.” 

Thank you,” Edith replied, rubbing her eyes

Deborah crossed her arms, looking at her with amusement. I heard you made a bet with Bald Ross. Quite bold, aren’t you? Trying to make a name in the circle?” 

Bald Ross was a nickname for Bald Ross Reed given by his peers

The bet they made had already become a hot topic in the circle

What would happen when old and new ideas collide? Which one would become the evergreen in archaeology

The answer would be revealed in a month

Edith broke off a piece of chocolate and tossed it into her mouth, casually saying, Ms. Stevens, do you think one should maintain a passion for academia in pursuing scholarly work?” 

She had asked this question to many who had offered her business cards and tried to woo her away

Deborah found it amusing and pondered seriously. 

After a few seconds, she smiled and said, Of course, if it weren’t for the love of it, I wouldn’t have joined the profession. But, personal interests have long tainted some people’s passion.” 

Edith smiled, a warmth breaking through her usually calm demeanor

I don’t want to become a ruthless businessman just yet, so I must restore this artifact properly.” 

Her tone was light, but the determination in her words was unmistakable

This bet wasn’t about gamblingIt was about integrity

Deborah suddenly felt a surge of inspiration. She had indeed chosen the right person

Keep it up. I’m looking forward to seeing this clay statue you’ve restored at a future exhibition,” Deborah said, patting Edith on the shoulder in solid affirmation

Having rested enough and obtained the needed materials, Edith didn’t linger

A month passed swiftly

Bald Ross tried to intimidate her twice and even attempted to sneak a peek at the progress of the artifact’s restoration, but Victor found excuses to send him away each time

Chapter 36 

Focused on her restoration work, Edith ran between various museums, sometimes too busy to eat, growing thinner daily

She overestimated her physical endurance and fainted after completing the last procedure

Edith!Charlie was frightened and quickly dialed for an ambulance

Due to work, he had to leave after dropping Edith off at the hospital

In fact, Charlie wanted to stay and take care of Edith

However, Edith told him not to worry and said, I’m fine. Go back and finish up your work

Butare you sure you’ll be okay alone in the hospital?Charlie hesitated at the doorway

Edith nodded. My friend is coming over soon.” 

Alright, call me if you need anything.Charlie left in a hurry

The door closed, silencing all sounds

Edith didn’t inform any friends

She could only call Bonnie and Shane, but she didn’t want to worry them

The doctor said insufficient rest and highintensity work caused lack of blood supply in her heart and thus a brief shock

It wasn’t a severe issue. A few days of rest and IV fluids would have her back to normal

Edith closed her eyes and drifted off into a heavy sleep

Of course, this news reached Gideon’s ears

He received the message in the middle of a meeting and immediately terminated the session

Ray had to jog a few steps to catch up with him, anxiously saying, Mr. Peterson, this is a shareholdersmeeting. Leaving might not be the best idea” 

Rescheduled the meeting for the day after tomorrow.” 

After giving this order, Gideon added, Head to the hospital.” 

It was only halfway there that Ray understood what was happening

No wonder Gideon was in such a rush

Ray was struck by the realization and perked up even as he drove

It had been half a month since Gideon had seen Edith after their unpleasant conversation at the lab

Approaching the hospital room door, he calmed himself for three seconds, then realized his reaction was far from normal

What was he worrying about

If Edith were in the hospital, the one who should be most concerned would be Shane

Shane must be considerately waiting at the bedside by now

Gideon’s felt soured uncontrollably deep down

There’s nothing to see here!He thought, turning to leave with his face sullen

Ray suddenly bumped into someone while looking down at his phone, texting. He felt like his life was in danger upon realizing who it was

I’m so sorry, Mr. Peterson! Are you alright? I didn’t mean to!”

Gideon frowned but, fortunately, didn’t lose his temper

He walked away without a word

Ray glanced toward the hospital room and then at his departing boss, deciding to speak up

Mr. Peterson, aren’t you going in? It’s not good to leave Mrs. Peterson alone in the room, Ray said, catching his breath

Gideon was walking fast with his long legs, and Ray would have to run to catch up

Alone?” 

Gideon pondered over this and narrowed his eyes. No one is taking care of her?” 

Ray felt his boss had been neurotic lately, always saying things that made no sense

Ray muttered to himself, but outwardly, he could only reply, Just Mrs. Peterson alone. Didn’t you see her just now?” 

Gideon was preoccupied with thoughts of Shane and Edith’s tender moments. Of course, he didn’t notice

He turned back to the hospital room, which was oddly quiet. The sound of them pushing the door was particularly abrupt, but fortunately, it didn’t wake the sleeping one

Ray tactfully stayed at the door

If he went in now, it would be really insensitive

Gideon quietly pulled up a chair and sat beside the bed

The person on the bed was pale, even their lips devoid of color, looking frail

Sleeping peacefully, Edith seemed more pleasant to Gideon than usual, and he couldn’t help but smile when he thought about this

He stayed by the bedside until Edith woke up

The sunlight waned, and the orange glow covered the cold whiteness of the hospital room, adding a touch of warmth

Edith felt someone watching her in her dreams, making her restless

Exhausted, she opened her eyes, only to see a figure sitting by the bed, backlit by the light

Before Edith could speak, she heard the other person utter an emotionless question

Are you awake?” 

Edith snapped to alertness. Why are you here?” 

Her voice was clear and firm. It seemed there was nothing to worry about

Gideon, who had been anxious, felt his heart settle back

He countered. Why can’t I be here?” 

Well, it was not like that… 

But when Edith opened her eyes and saw her ex and archenemy sitting at the bedside, she couldn’t shake off the feeling that her days were numbered

Edith shifted her body, leaning back against the headboard, murmuring, When I was sick and hospitalized, you hired a nurse to take care of me. Why don’t you do that now?” 

She found his belated concern unnecessary

 

Deep in thought, Gideon couldn’t recall this incident and pressed his lips, saying, When have I ever brushed you off like that?” 

He truly didn’t remember any such event

  The Pigeon Pair Saves The Marriage Chapter 1 Knock It Off Late at night, after having sex, Edith Jones lay on the bed, gently panting with slightly pressed lips, watching Gideon Peterson get off her. Having a pair of beautiful eyes, she turned to lie on her side. Gideon's profile, charming and handsome, was all she could see. However, she didn't mind his aloofness but still had a hint of expectation. She thought, 'Today is our wedding anniversary. Will he remember?' "Giddy, you..." she said softly first, wanting to say something more. But then, Gideon's phone suddenly rang. He didn't pay attention to Edith. He just reached for his phone, put it to his ear, and answered, "Hello." His voice was deep and husky, with the sexiness of just having made love. The person on the other end said something. Gideon's expression remained unchanged. He responded indifferently, "I'll be right there."
