have a heart condition, you need to be more careful.”
Eleanor’s heart warmed up, and she smiled, “I went to get my test results.”
Hailey opened the lid of the soup container and said, “I could’ve gotten that for you, you should stay here and rest.”
After saying that, she reached out with concern, “Where’s the report? Let me see it.”
Eleanor blinked her eyes. She didn’t want to lie to Hailey, but she still reluctantly said, “I got it to show the doctor, but I left it in the
Hearing this, Hailey didn’t think much of it, but she was more concerned about Eleanor’s health, “What were the results?”
Eleanor replied casually, “No biggie.”
Hailey put down the spoon, and looked at Eleanor very seriously, “You’re not like ordinary people, you have a heart condition, so blood tests are the most important checkup.”
Eleanor smiled, “I know, the doctor said everything’s fine,
Finally reassured, Hailey handed Eleanor the soup, “I bought your favorite, chicken noodle soup. Have some first.”
Eleanor took it and scooped small spoonful into her mouth.
Hailey looked at Eleanor’s pale face and hesitated to speak.
If she hadn’t just misheard, Eleanor had been calling for Garett in her sleep.
The guy had always been a taboo topic for Eleanor. After so many years, this was the first time Hailey had heard Eleanor call Garett’s name in her sleep.
Hailey wanted to ask whether Eleanor’s memories of Garett were still buried deep inside her, but she also didn’t want to make her upset. After thinking for a long time, Hailey eventually chose to keep quiet. Garett was a thing of the past, mentioning him would only add
Eleanor was full after half a bowl of the noodle soup. She put down the spoon and asked Hailey, “Aren’t you supposed to be at work?”
Hailey pointed to her watch, “It’s already this late, what work?”
“I took two days off to be with you.”
Hailey lay down on the empty bed beside them, “Might as well take this chance to have a good rest myself.”
Eleanor gave a gentle smile, “Thank you.”
Hailey waved her hand and yawned, “Eleanor, I’m gonna take a nap. Tell me if you need anything.”
Eleanor nodded, “The doctor’s making rounds, you can have a good sleep.”
Only then did Hailey close her eyes and drift off.
Hailey worked at a nightclub, which was mostly night shifts, super busy and tiring.
Since she didn’t manage to get into college, she couldn’t be like ordinary employees, sitting comfy in an office job.
Plus, after graduating from high school, she hadn’t found a good job and wanted to remain in A City, so she went to work at the nightclub.
She started in sales, then got promoted to manager due to her good performance.
After several years of hard work, she finally managed to buy a house and a car, which was quite an achievement. But the process was indeed very hard.
Fortunately, Hailey found herself a super reliable boyfriend. They were getting married next month, on the ninth.
Once she’s married, she can break free from being along and start a family of her own.
Although Hailey had a tough time over the years, her future was always full of hope.
As for Eleanor, she didn’t dare to hope for anything else. All she wants is to live to see Hailey’s wedding day, and to be there for her best friend when she ties the knot. Then, she wouldn’t have any regrets.
