Lucian couldn’t hear what Jonathan told them, but he did notice the rapid change in their facial expressions. It didn’t take long before Jonathan successfully convinced the kids to go with him.
“I’ll take the kids out for a meal and bring them. back here in a bit. You should go keep Dr. Jarvis company!” he said with all three of the kids. standing next to him.
Lucian nodded. “Thanks a lot.” Jonathan simply let out a casual chuckle and led the kids into the elevator.
There was still a hint of doubt in Lucian’s eyes as he watched the elevator doors close, but he figured it would be safe to entrust Jonathan with the kids.
After taking a few seconds to recollect himself, Lucian turned around and made his way into the ward.
Unbeknownst to him, Roxanne had heard his footsteps from inside the ward. Realizing that Lucian was coming in alone this time, she quickly closed her eyes and pretended to be asleep.
“I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I can’t force you to accept me after this incident, but Archie and Benny need a father,” Lucian said in a deep voice.
Roxanne felt tense up out of fear of what he would say next. “If you won’t let me be their father, then I can help you find their biological father instead. At the very least, I’ll make sure he fulfills his responsibilities as their father,” Lucian continued.
Roxanne’s eyes shot open when she heard that. I won’t be able to keep their true identities a secret if Lucian decides to investigate! I can’t afford to lose them!
She opened her mouth and was about to say something but got cut off by a sudden splitting headache. “What’s wrong?” Lucian asked when he saw that she was in pain.
Roxanne had both arms wrapped around her head. She knew that she had accidentally gotten emotional before making a full recovery, which would result in a splitting headache.
However, she was unable to tell him about it. The next thing she knew, Lucian had placed a hand on her shoulder, which made her feel a lot better.
As though it would transfer her pain over to him, Roxanne instinctively grabbed onto his hand and squeezed as hard as she could. It pained Lucian deeply to see her in so much pain.
He then sat down on the side of her bed and hugged her tightly with one arm. Using his other arm, he grabbed his phone and called Zayne.
Fortunately, the call got through fairly quickly. “Have the specialists come over immediately!” Lucian ordered coldly while enduring the pain in his hand.
Although they were speaking on the phone, Zayne was still terrified by his icy-cold tone of voice and agreed to his request in a heartbeat.
Lucian hung up the phone after that and whispered in Roxanne’s ear, “I’ve summoned the doctors. They should be here any minute now, so just hang in there for a bit. Do not fall asleep, you hear me?”
Roxanne tightened her grip on his hand and instinctively nuzzled against his chest. She felt as though her body was being torn apart by the intense pain.
“I won’t investigate them if you don’t want me to. I just want you to be all right!” Lucian muttered through clenched teeth.
Roxanne felt as though her headache got a little less intense when she buried her face in his chest and filled her nose with his scent. However, she was still in too much pain to say anything in response.
The door to her ward opened all of a sudden, and she soon heard the sound of hurried footsteps approaching. Lucian then let go of her shoulder and got ready to leave.
