Melanie did not stop organizing her documents as she said with her head lowered, “I have something on later, and Eugene doesn’t like his staff doing this.”
Yana know this was inappropriate and returned to her seat gloomily.
Melanie arranged the documents submitted to her in the past few days when she was not in the company. It was almost time to get off work when she was done.
She wanted to rush to the hospital to visit her grandfather.
When she was at the hospital, she noticed Stephen.
Albert was still on his bed, hooked to a drip. When he saw Melanie, he beckoned and greeted her.
Melanie put down her bag and greeted Albert before looking at Stephen. “Why are you here again?”
Stephen had just driven her home that morning.
“I wanted to visit Albert and happened to bump into the busy dean. So, I took over and accompanied Albert,” Stephen’s voice was gentle. He happened to see the drip finishing and closed it before changing to a new bag.
Melanie bit her lips and thanked him, “Thank you.”
Albert’s condition was almost the same as the day before. Melanie went to the doctor’s office for an update on his condition.
The caretaker arrived, and she had a lunch box with her. It was the meal the dean had specially
instructed for Albert.
Albert could only eat soft foods. After getting the doctor’s permission, Melanie fed him his dinner.
Albert looked at Melanie, feeling sorry and bad. It was so obvious that Melanie found it challenging to
She could only look away.
However, Albert regained a little of his energy after the meal.
He grabbed Melanie’s hand with his wrinkled hand. His voice was hoarse. “Mel, I shouldn’t have said that to you,”
“Your mother has disappointed you.” Albert could not stop himself from thinking about what Dylan had said during the call.
He never thought Melanie had suffered so much.
Albert’s hand that was grabbing Melanie’s shuddered, and he muttered, “I’m sorry. It’s my fault for not educating her well enough.”
He seemed agitated upon saying this, and Melanie chuckled. Grabbing Albert’s hand, she comforted him gently, “No. Please don’t say that. You raised me, and you’re my closest family member.‘
Albert’s eyes shimmered from tears. Melanie’s grandmother died when Melanie was five, and he had never married any other woman.
He had brought up Melanie alone.
Although Melanie never mentioned it, he knew she yearned for her parents‘ love.
He could imagine how Melanie had been hoping for Dylan’s love.
In the end, Dylan stabbed Melanie in the back, and he had helped Dylan do this.
He felt bad and did not let go of Melanie’s hand. “Your mother told me everything. She’s so muddle- headed.”
Melanie heard her grandfather’s words and was alarmed. Her forehead creased.
After a while, she muttered, “Don’t think too much about this. I’ll settle it.”
She finally coaxed her grandfather to sleep and left after adjusting his bed.
Her conversation with her grandfather was personal. Stephen left the ward with the caretaker right
when Albert was about to shed tears.
Seeing that Melanie had walked out, he asked gently, “Is everything alright?”
Melanie nodded. “I’m fine.”
Although she said so, she did not look good and was a little pale.
