Albert did not look good. His eyelids were drooping as he looked at Melanie. He could not say another
The dean whispered to Melanie, “Mr. Lancaster has been calling your name since he regained consciousness.”
Melanie covered her grandfather with the blanket, saying, “Have some rest. You can tell me whatever you want to say tomorrow.
However, her grandfather refused to let go of her hand.
The corners of his eyes were drenched in tears as he held Melanie’s hand. He used all his might to say, “Mel, you’ve suffered a lot.”
He spoke slowly to make every word he said sound clear.
Melanie froze, yet she said nothing in response to it.
Albert was on a drip. He wanted to touch Melanie’s head, yet his arm fell before it could reach her head because he was weak.
It was 11:00 pm, and the hospital corridor was quiet.
Melanie stood in the corridor for a while before leaving the inpatient building.
She felt better and less suffocated when the warm night breeze blew past her.
She couldn’t get a caretaker for her grandfather for the time being, and it was impossible to let the dean accompany Albert. Thus, Melanie stayed there for the night.
The following morning, the dean brought the caretaker from the hospital to the ward, and Melanie
Before leaving, she went to the doctor’s office to learn more about Albert’s condition.
Albert’s condition was not good, and he was getting old. Organ failure had worsened the state of his
health, and the doctor told Melanie to be prepared.
“The patient’s health is poor, and he has underlying diseases. The main cause of his blood pressure elevating was because he was agitated.”
The doctor reminded her, “You must pay attention to the patient’s emotions. We might be able to rescue him this time, but if it happens again, a stroke or hemorrhage in the brain might occur.”
Melanie nodded her head solemnly.
As soon as she left the office, she took out her phone and called Yana, telling her she would return to work this afternoon.
She was in Jepton, and Albert’s condition was bad. She couldn’t just leave him and get back to work.
Unexpectedly, she received a call from Stephen before she could dial Yana’s number.
Tired, Melanie rubbed her forehead as she answered the call.
Stephen’s worried voice came through the other end of the call. “Mel, have you returned to Jepton? I just found out about your grandfather’s condition.”
Melanie had asked for Stephen’s help to look after her grandfather. She responded, “I’m at the hospital now.”
Stephen brought her breakfast when he visited.
He looked at Melanie worriedly as he comforted her gently, “Don’t worry. Everything will be fine.”
Melanie nodded. “I know.”
Her voice was gentle and weak. She looked tired.
It was understandable.
She rushed from Hearth City to Jepton in a hurry yesterday and even stayed for the night in the hospital. It was definitely tiring.
Stephen said, “I’ll drive you home for a rest. Your health is important too.”
Melanie did not reject his offer as she was truly exhausted.
Moreover, she had to call Dylan.
Stephen had always been a kind gentleman. He drove Melanie back to her place.
Melanie’s business trip took two weeks. It felt strange getting back to her familiar home.
However, she did not have time to lament and dialed Dylan’s number as soon as she entered her
