Chapter 395 Did You Wish I Was Dead
Samuel had a gloomy look on his face. “What? Did you wish I was dead?”
Kathleen felt embarrassed.
He walked over to her. “Get down. I can see your panties.”
Feeling awkward, she quickly got off the chair.
She knitted her brows. “Why didn’t you answer Eil’s call when you’re fine? He’s worried about you, so I’m here to check on you on his behalf.”
He shot her a long and meaningful glance as he asked, “Aren’t you worried about me?”
She snorted coldly. “Why should I be worried about a self-righteous man like you? I’d rather not get involved with you.”
He felt miserable.
“If you’re fine, then get changed quickly. Eil and Desi are waiting for you,” she said indifferently.
He looked at her without saying anything.
She wanted to leave, but he pulled her hand.
“Kate, I need your help.”
She was annoyed. “You told me you’re hungry last night; what do you need this time?”
He pointed at his injured wrist. “I can’t lift my entire arm.”
She was shocked and walked toward him. “What? Get in! Let me see.”
He followed her into the villa and sat on the couch.
She untied his bandage and saw how terrible his wound was.
Her eyes turned red. “Did you use your injured hand?”
“I wanted to take a shower last night, and I accidentally slipped,” he replied.
She bit her lip. “Why didn’t you tell me sooner?”
His voice was hoarse. “It was late, and you were all asleep. I thought that it would be okay after enduring the pain, but I only realized that my arm hurt too after I woke up. Maybe it was caused by the fall yesterday.”
Kathleen pursed her lips. “I don’t get it. Is that how you should be taking care of yourself? Would it kill you to skip showering for a day?”
Samuel remained silent as he sat there.
She looked at him angrily. “Get changed. We’re going to the hospital.”
He stood up. “But I can’t wear my clothes.”
“I’ll help you,” she replied quietly.
He smiled. “Thanks. You’re really a good person.”
“I feel that you’re mocking me,” she said angrily.
It’s like he’s mocking me for ignoring him last night!
He didn’t dare to look at her. “You’re overthinking things.”
Kathleen promptly made her way upstairs.
She took out a suit from the closet and placed it on the bed before taking a white shirt and turning to look at him.
He was looking plainly at her too. “What’s wrong?”
She furrowed her brows. “Take off your clothes. Why are you looking at me?”
A pained look appeared on Samuel’s handsome face. “Kate, I really don’t have any energy left. I’m not faking it.”
She walked over to him. “I get it. I’ll help you with that.”
The next moment, she reached out and helped him out of his robe.
He was not wearing anything inside. His figure was tall and sturdy, he had no flab at all, and his abs were sexy.
Kathleen blushed and said in an irritated tone, “Why didn’t you wear anything underneath your robe?”
He smiled in exasperation. “If I could, I wouldn’t have waited for you to help me. Besides, do you wear anything when you take a shower?”
She puffed up her cheeks. “Sit down.”
He sat down obediently, and she helped him put on his pants.
After he put on his pants, she felt much better.
Next, she helped him put on his shirt and button it up before tucking it into his pants.
Lastly, she helped him with his belt.
To her surprise, she had reached the end of the belt, but it was still loose.
That meant that he had gotten thinner than before.
She lifted her head to look at his handsome face. Indeed, he had lost weight lately. His cheeks were sunken, and his skin was pale. He looked unhealthy.
His body condition wasn’t good to begin with. If it wasn’t for her, his condition wouldn’t have worsened.
However, he never complained to her. Yet, when he told her he was hungry the day before, she ignored him.
He panicked all of a sudden when he saw her reddened eyes. “Don’t cry.”
She sniffled. “I’m not crying.”
After helping him with his belt, she went on to help with his tie.
It had been a long time since he was that close to her, and he was looking at her with his gaze lowered.
He felt like they had gone back to several years ago.
At that time, they had just gotten married, and she was always keen on helping him with his tie.
Wearing a pink sleeping gown, she would stand in his embrace and help him with his tie.
In the past, he didn’t understand. Only then did he finally comprehend what her action meant.
He lowered his head down slowly and pulled her into his arms.
He closed his eyes. “Kate, I get it now. All of it. But it’s too late now, isn’t it?”
She asked quietly, “What are you talking about?”
“Back then, you treated me as your husband, but I…” His voice was hoarse.
Back then, to Kathleen, Samuel was her husband and someone whom she would spend the rest of her life with.
She took care of everything around the house wholeheartedly, and it was obvious from everything she did.
However, he misunderstood her and hurt her.
If he could turn back time, he would never make her sad.
“Samuel, that’s in the past. Talking about it now is useless. Let go of me first. I asked Ryder to help me watch the kids. I feel bad for troubling him.” She took a deep breath.
Samuel nodded and let go of her.
She continued helping him with his tie. Suddenly, she was shocked. “Your tie’s already torn.”
He replied plainly, “It’s just a little worn.”
She furrowed her brows. “Don’t you have money to get a new one?”
“You bought me this tie in the past,” he explained.
She was speechless.
So, he has been wearing the same tie for five years?
She remained silent as she helped him with his suit.
He still looked like the handsome and heartless Samuel that she knew.
“Let’s go,” she said to him.
Samuel nodded and left with her.
Kathleen asked him to get into the car first while she went to the restaurant.
Ryder and the two kids had already finished their breakfast.
“Thank you, Ryder. Samuel’s not feeling well, so I’m taking him to the hospital,” she said.
Ryder frowned. “Do you need me to send you there?”
She shook her head. “No. I can drive.”
“All right, then.” He didn’t want to force it.
With that, Kathleen held onto Eilam and Desiree’s hands as they walked toward the car.
Samuel was sitting in the passenger seat as he looked at them quietly.
Kathleen asked Eilam and Desiree to sit at the back and passed a paper bag to Samuel. “There’s some pancakes inside. I heard that they added some black truffles. Have some for now.”
With that, she closed the door of the passenger seat and walked over to the driver’s seat before getting into the car.
She drove toward the city.
Soon, they reached the hospital.
Tyson was already waiting for them at the entrance.
Kathleen and the others got out of the car.
She asked Tyson to watch the kids while she brought Samuel to see the doctor.
After the checkup, the doctor commanded Samuel to be hospitalized. If Samuel didn’t take good care of his wrist and let it recover, he would become crippled.
The doctor said quietly, “Mr. Macari, I’ve told you this before! Your hand will become crippled if you carry on like this! What do you plan to do if that really happens?”
