Sophie had no expression on her face, “I never agreed to let you use my work to manipulate others.”
Riley sneered, “What’s the difference anyway?! You’ve already sold the design draft, so why do you care what I do with it?!”
“I wouldn’t give you my design draft anymore.”
A hint of disbelief flashed in Riley’s eyes as they gritted their teeth and said, “Say it again! Do you want your mother to be kicked out of the hospital?! Don’t forget, we signed a contract back then. If you breach it, you must compensate me with two million in penalty fees. Can you come up with that much money?!”
Seeing the contempt and disdain in Riley’s eyes, Sophie took out a card from her pocket and handed it to her.
“There are two million inside here, we are even now.”
Riley looked at the card she handed over in shock and then sneered, “Sophie, are you trying to deceive me with an empty card?!”
“You can just look it up yourself, the password is six zeros.”
“No, we signed a contract for two years, and there is still over a year left. I do not agree to terminate it!”
Since Sophie started drawing design drafts for herself, she gradually gained the appreciation and envy of her colleagues. She was no longer the invisible person she used to be. How could she possibly return to her original state?

Sophie looked indifferent and said, “I had the right to terminate the contract. Even if you don’t want this money, I wouldn’t draw any design sketches for you in the future.”
“Where did you get so much money?!”
“It had nothing to do with you.”
Riley gritted his teeth and said, “I knew an expert in the field of internal medicine. As long as you are willing to continue drawing design sketches for me and explain the plagiarism incident clearly, I will introduce that expert to help treat your mother!”
Sophie shook her head, “No need, I had already found a better doctor.”
Before, Riley also told herself that she would help her mother find an expert, but she just casually found a doctor for her mother, which resulted in her mother’s illness being dragged on for more than half a
Now, she would no longer be deceived by the other party.
She handed the card to Riley and said, “Don’t come looking for me again, I won’t see you anymore.”
After parting ways with Riley, Sophie took a bus to Bridenville General Hospital.
As soon as Sophie arrived at Lydia’s ward, she quickly grabbed Sophie’s hand.
“Sophie, how did I suddenly end up being transferred to such a nice ward? What’s going on?”
Before, Lydia used to live in a four–person ward, but now it has
suddenly changed to a single room, with its own private bathroom and kitchen, as well as a small living room.
Lydia was scared and quickly called Sophie to come over.
Sophie walked up to the bedside and sat down, holding Lydia’s hand. She said, “Mom, from now on, you will live here to recuperate. The previous four–person room was too noisy, and you couldn’t rest well every day.”
Due to illness, Lydia’s hands became dry and wrinkled like old tree bark, forming a stark contrast with Sophie’s delicate and fair fingers.
Sophie lowered her head and glanced at it, her eyes involuntarily turning red.
“This single room must be very expensive. Where did you get so much money, Sophie? You wouldn’t…”
Seeing the doubt in Lydia’s eyes, Sophie quickly said, “Mom, don’t worry, I didn’t sell my body, I won’t do that kind of thing.”
“If you don’t explain it clearly, I won’t stay in this ward anymore!”
Sophie quickly grabbed her and said, “Alright, I’ll tell you. This ward was arranged for you by my boss. She said that the hospitalization expenses will be considered as my debt to her. From now on, she will deduct five thousand dollars from my salary every month and repay her until it is fully paid off.”
Lydia frowned and asked, “Is your boss a man or a woman?”
Knowing what her mother was worried about, Sophie said helplessly, “Mom, I will start working tomorrow and may not have time to take care of you during the day. I will hire a caregiver for you then.”
After Briana paid off the five thousand, she could hire a caregiver to take care of Lydia. Most importantly, she could continue to draw design sketches without having to sign someone else’s name.
Lydia quickly waved her hand and said, “I can take care of myself. Maybe I should just go back to my old ward. I don’t want to burden you…”
