Hearing that, Olivia accidentally let her phone slip through her hand. It dropped onto the floor.
The thud surprised Irene, who had been on the phone with Keith for a while.
She hurriedly hung up the call and looked at Olivia. “Olivia, what’s the matter?”
Olivia seemed pale. “Nothing.”
Irene picked up Olivia’s phone and saw the screen showing Ethan’s face.
After wiping the phone screen, Irene handed it over to Olivia while comforting her.
“Put your worry at rest, Olivia. He doesn’t know that you’re alive. It’s time to walk out of his shadow.”
Irene didn’t know what Ethan had done to Olivia that the latter was so afraid of him.
Olivia nodded, but she couldn’t shake off the fear. Her hunch kept telling her that he was speaking to her.
“Right, there’s no way he knows that I’m still alive,” she muttered.
She tried to persuade herself in her head. “If he knew that I’m still alive, he wouldn’t have let me wander
out here. He would’ve asked someone to bring me back to him.”
After considering Ethan’s character and way of doing things, she was slightly relieved.
Quickly, she turned the live broadcast off, blaming the radical effect he had on him.
With Keith’s help, Olivia got better as the day passed.

Irene comforted Olivia. “Don’t worry, Olivia. I’m sure the results are good.”
As she had expected, Keith revealed the good news while they were on their way back.

“But it might relapse at any time, so you gotta be careful.”
At long last, Olivia’s eyes seemed alive.
She was still bald and skinny, and she wanted to cry so much upon hearing that answer.
Her persistence for six months had finally borne fruit.
She gazed at the couple with teary eyes. “Thank you.”
“Don’t cry. The sadder you are, the happier the cancer cells in your body are. Stay happy.
“This is only the first step toward victory. There’s a long way ahead of you before you defeat it.”
Irene wiped Olivia’s tears away. “Yeah. As long as you get better, our effort won’t go down the drain.”
Olivia was emotional and couldn’t utter a word. Only those who had near-death experiences could relate
On their way back, she could see the starry sky that greatly described her current emotions. She believed
that she would be able to reunite with her children soon.

The favor was burdensome to them, considering that she had nothing to do with them.
Everyone had their own lives. Even if the couple was not bothered by it, she couldn’t bring herself to stay shamelessly.
“Yeah, for your case, you should at least rest for six months. Olivia, you can go wherever you want after
that. But now, you mustn’t leave.”
