Not many people in the company knew where Melanie lived.
Lee said, “Melanie’s house is in the same high–end residence on the west side of the city as Mr. Scott’s.”
This was news. After all, everyone knew Prestige Residences, which Eugene lived in, was a famous high–end residence in Jepton. Many people couldn’t afford to buy a toilet–sized room in that area, even if they worked all their lives for it.
Lee was the one who registered Melanie’s house. He knew Eugene bought it for Melanie, but he was not sure about the rest.
That was why Lee had always been the one who treated Melanie the best. After all, he had never seen Eugene buying a house for a woman other than Melanie.
The sincerity of a man in a relationship depended on how much he was willing to spend on the
Viola’s expression turned gloomy upon hearing it.
Eugene bought Melanie’s house, and it was in Prestige Residences.
What about her?
She and her parents had been living in a 60–square–foot apartment, and Eugene knew that.
Viola’s hatred deepened. She bit her lip, and her expression became distorted.
Melanie headed straight to the hospital after leaving the company.
On the way there, she received a call from Xander. From the day she was dragged into this mess, Xander and Stephen had been sending her messages to comfort her.
As Melanie was in a bad mood, she rarely replied to them.
With Albert’s health disturbing her, Melanie’s mind was in a mess. She did not have the time to bother about anything else.
Her phone kept ringing, and Melanie was driving. She connected the Bluetooth in her car and answered the call.
Xander’s deep voice came through the call. “Where are you?”
“In the car.” Melanie then added, “I’m heading to the hospital.”
Stephen’s voice also sounded. “Are you not feeling well?”
He was worried and continued, “Mel, don’t worry. Look after yourself. Everything will be fine.”
In fact, this matter was not easy to settle. The netizens were driven by a sense of justice now. The more a piece of news was suppressed, the more interested in it they became.
Stephen had asked for help. In the end, those people seemed to have found the fun side of retorting those capitalists and left worse comments.
Melanie grunted in response and said, “I’m visiting my grandfather.”
When she arrived at the hospital, the doctor had just left the ward and happened to bump into Melanie. He asked, “Are you the patient’s family member? Please follow me to the office. The patient’s condition might be worse than we had expected.
“The patient is already old, and surgery would be dangerous. However, the patient is continuing to lose blood when he has already lost a lot. If we don’t clean the blood clot, it’ll…
“Of course, we respect the patient’s and the family member’s decision.”
The doctor’s words lingered in Melanie’s ears. When she returned to the ward, the nurse was wiping Albert’s face, and he was still sleeping.
Melanie sat by the bed and took the cloth from the nurse. She continued wiping Albert’s face. She felt lost as she grabbed Albert’s wrinkled hand, wanting to vent her emotions by crying. However, she was afraid she might wake him up.
Melanie wiped Albert’s hands after wiping her face. Then, she tucked Albert in with the blanket.
