Before, it was always Sonia who stood there and watched him leave. He always knew, but he had never once looked back at her.
And now, it was finally his turn to stand in place and watch her leave.
As it turned out, it could be so upsetting to watch someone leave without even being spared a backward glance or a response.
Toby lowered his head slightly and stroked his chest, which felt bitter and slightly tingling.
In the parking lot.
Sonia and Charles arrived at their car.
Charles opened the car door and said, “Darling, do you think something is wrong with Toby? Why did he come all the way here to apologize to you personally?”
“Only God knows” Sonia replied uninterestedly and ducked her head to get into the car.
Charles also got into the car at the same time. “I really couldn’t understand what this man was thinking.”
Sonia smiled. “If you could read his mind, your achievements today would be the same as his. Alright, let’s drive. Otherwise, Mrs. Lane will call and ask us why we haven’t arrived yet.”
“Fine.” Charles nodded and started the car.
On the way, Sonia’s cell phone rang all of a sudden.
She opened her eyes, took her phone out, and looked at it with a somewhat surprised look on her face
Charles caught her expression and asked hurriedly, “Who is it?”
“It’s Carl!” Sonia answered the call after replying
As soon as Charles heard that it was Carl, he pursed his lips and said nothing more.
“Hey, Carl!” Sonia yelled into the phone with joy.
Carl’s gentle voice spread through the phone. “Sonia, do you have some time to spare in a few days?”
“I think so… What’s the matter?* Sonia asked.
Currently, she had taken over half of the management power from Asher, and her right to speak in Paradigm Co. had gotten much higher now. She didn’t have to do a lot of things by herself; instead, she could order her subordinates to do it in her stead.
Therefore, she could make time.
“My work abroad is coming to an end. I plan on returning home in a few days, and I was thinking of having a meal with you,” Carl replied with a smile.
“Sure. Thinking back, you’ve been on a business trip for two months now-it’s about time for you to be back already. Alright, call me when you’re back, I’ll pick you up at the airport then.” Sonia agreed to his invitation.
“Okay,” Carl answered, and then squinted his eyes. Although his voice was still gentle, there was a hint of coldness in his tone. “Sonia, how have you been doing in the past two months? Did Tina and the rest bully you?”
When he had just started his business trip, he was not that busy with work, so he could pay attention to the news to see what was happening in the country.
However, when he got busier later on, he didn’t have much time to pay attention to the news anymore-so he couldn’t tell if Tina and the others had bullied Sonia.
“I’m fine. As for Tina and the others.. Sonia’s smile faded a lot. “Don’t worry. You know I’m someone who always bite back, so they had what was coming to them.”
“Based on what you said, it means they really did bully you, right?” Carl lowered his eyelids to cover the chill in his eyes.
Sonia smiled. “Hey, now. Didn’t I tell you I am not easy to mess around with? So don’t worry, and know that I am fine. By the way, isn’t it still nighttime on your side of the globe? Go and rest up!”
Seeing that she didn’t want to say any more, Carl didn’t push it any further. He twitched the corner of his mouth and showed an eerie smile. “Okay. I’ll hang up first, then. We’ll talk more when I see you in a few days.”
“Okie dokes See you in a few days!” Sonia nodded.
After the call Charles asked, “Carl is coming back?”
“Yeah. In a few days,” Sonia put away her phone and replied.
Charles coughed and continued, “Carl seemed to be asking if Tina and the rest had bullied you. Am I right?”
“Yes. He is worried about me-that’s all.”
“Well, well, well. It seems that Tina and the others should worry about themselves now.” Charles Smiled gloatingly.
Sonia looked at him suspiciously. “What do you mean?”
“Nothing.” Charles shook his head; he was not
going to elaborate.
“Really? Because I feel like you’re hiding something from me.” Sonia narrowed her beautiful eyes
Charles straightened up from his seat. “Nothing! It was really nothing!”
“Nevermind, then. I don’t care anyway.” Sonia rolled her eyes and stopped looking at him.
Charles heaved a breath of relief softly and was snickering in his heart.
It’s a good thing that Cari decided to come back. That guy is a lunatic, he thought to himself.
With him here, Sonia would be much safer, while Tina and the others would definitely
Thinking about it, Charles couldn’t manage to hold back a chuckle.
Sonia glanced at him, not knowing what he was laughing about, but she did not ask about it, and instead put on her headphones to listen to Some music
The next day, which was also the weekend, Charles accompanied Sonia to the hospital.
When he arrived at the hospital, Sonia got out of the car and stood at the gate of the hospital. She looked up at the big sign of the hospital but did not lift her foot to walk in for a long time.
Charles parked the car and came to her. Watching her hesitance, he had guessed
something, so he said softly, “Darling. If you’re scared let’s not get the abortion and just keep the baby.”
Sonia retracted her gaze and shook her head, her gaze firm. “No. I want to do it. I admit that I am a little scared, because I have never had this kind of operation, but it would be unfair to the baby if I kept it because I was too afraid, After all, I don’t love it, and I can’t give it maternal love.”
A child should grow up in a loving family, with two loving parents. The baby in her belly was conceived because of a night of recklessness. She didn’t love the child’s father-how could she even begin to bring herself to love this child?
What was more, even if she kept this child, it would not have a father. Even though the father said very clearly that he was willing to raise this child, he did not want to recognize it as his own -which meant this child would still be an illegitimate child.
Therefore, instead of allowing this child to come into the world to suffer, it was better not
to let it be born in the first place.
After thinking about it, Sonia took a deep breath, settled her emotions, and raised her foot to walk into the hospital.
Charles also quickly followed.
After taking their queue number, the two walked toward the Obstetrics and Gynecology department
Not far away. Tina watched the two disappear into the elevator. She bit her lower lip and went to the registration desk. “Hello, missy. May ask about Miss Reed just now? What department is she heading to? I am her friend, and I noticed that she has been in a bad mood recently, so I followed her all the way here. I didn’t expect her to actually come to the hospital. So could you please tell me? I am really worried about her.”
The worry on Tina’s face looked sincere, and the nurse was moved by it. She then turned over to take a look at Sonia’s registration record and told Tina, “She’s going to the Obstetrics and Gynecology department.”
Hearing the name of the department, Tina lifted the corner of her lips slightly, but she quickly cleared up her expression and switched back to her worried look just now. “I see. Thank you, missy”
“It’s nothing.” The nurse waved her hand,
The moment Tina turned and left, the worry on her face disappeared suddenly, and now, her face was full of excitement instead.
She took out her mobile phone and dialed Tim Lancaster’s number. “Hey, Tim, Sonia came to the hospital. I thought she would choose another hospital. I didn’t expect that she would come to yours. I’ll leave the rest to you, Tim.”
“Alright. Don’t worry.” Tim’s glasses reflected the light as he pushed the rim.
As soon as Tina put down the phone, Toby approached her while frowning slightly. *Tina, didn’t I tell you to wait for me at the gate of the hospital? Why did you come here?”
Tina’s eyes flashed, whereupon she smiled and replied, “Sorry, Toby. I just saw someone familiar, so I chased them in a hurry and forgot what you said. Please don’t be mad at me.”
She hugged his arm and shook it, acting like a child.
After all, she wasn’t lying. When she was waiting for him at the entrance of the hospital, she saw Sonia and Charles, so she hurriedly hid and quietly followed them in.
She came over to see a psychiatrist, yet she happened to meet Sonia and Charles for a birth
check-up. Well, Isn’t this great? I‘ll be able to end Sonia once and for all today! she thought gleefully.
