Roxanne endured the pain in her waist as she finished up her shower. Upon putting on her clothes and stepping out of the bathroom, she saw Lucian standing in the corridor. I’m done.”
Lucian promptly approached her and abruptly stretched his hand toward her. His action confounded her for a moment. Then, she looked in the direction his hand was stretching toward and saw him lifting her collar.
She was stunned for a moment before she realized why he was doing that and reflexively avoided his line of sight. “I have to go for medical consultation, so I’ll be leaving now.” Then, she lowered her head and walked past him.
Knowing that her thoughts were still in disarray, Lucian decided the best course of action was to stay quiet and let her calm down by herself. After he watched her leave, he returned to his room.
Roxanne mentioned she needed to do medical consultation because she was simply worried about the residents of the nursing home and not because she felt guilty.
Upon glancing at the time and seeing it was almost eight. We had already reached the nursing home at this time yesterday, yet Jack hasn’t even come out yet.
Hence, she knocked on Jack’s door as she was perplexed, wanting to ask him what was going on. However, no one replied to her, despite the continuous knocking.
Just as Roxanne was about to call Jack, a cleaner stepped out of the neighboring room and helpfully informed her, “The person in that room has already checked out.”
Roxanne was confused. “When?” I thought we were going to attend the medical consultation. together today. We even had dinner together last night. “After he came back last night.”
Upon thanking the cleaner, she looked away, feeling rather uneasy. Jack seemed fine during the dinner yesterday. Why did he come back here last night just to check out? If I remember correctly, he was going to send me back yesterday, so logically, he should be preparing to return together with me….
The more she thought about it, the weirder she found the situation to be. Maybe something happened after I was drunk. Thus, she returned to Lucian to find out what happened.
After she knocked on the entrance twice, Lucian opened the door and stared at her. “What’s the matter? Aren’t you in a hurry to attend the medical consultation?”
Roxanne carefully observed his expression as she spoke. “Did something happen after I got drunk last night?” In response, he deliberately scrutinized her as though he was asking, Don’t you know what happened already?
Upon detecting the look in his eyes, she furrowed her eyebrows with embarrassment and fury. “What I’m asking is if there was at conflict between you and Mr. Damaris. He checked out of his room last night.”
The only possibility she could think of was that Lucian had a dispute of some kind with Jack when the former went to pick her up. The look in Lucian’s eyes turned cold. He didn’t like her questioning him because of another man so soon after leaving his bed.
“You think I’m the one who chased him away?” His expression became icier as he recalled what had transpired last night. I didn’t do anything. However, even if I did chase him away, I would’ve been justified in doing so because of what he said.
Upon noticing the changes in his countenance, Roxanne explained, “That’s not what I meant. I’m just curious as to why Mr. Damaris suddenly checked out. We have a medical consultation today, and he’s the person in charge. He shouldn’t have left without saying a word.”
