Chapter 33: Promising To Treat Master Iker
Cheyenne was so bored that she absentmindedly tapped her delicate, pale hand on the table and began to doodle
As a younger family member, she didn’t know much about what had happened in the past and didn’t want to speak out of turn
But she believed that her grandfather wouldn’t hate someone for no reason, so there must be something suspicious about this Granduncle’s visit.
“Layne, I’ve come to realize over these years that I was wrong to betray the Edwards family and you,” he said with tears welling up in his eyes
Hmph! You owe an even bigger apology to your wife!”
Adrian replied with a desolate expression as his brow furrowed. “Yes, I owe Kaylee an apology.*
“Bang!” The sound was deafening as the tea lid on the table jumped up and water splashed everywhere.
It turned out that Layne had become angry and hit the tea table in front of him. “Do you know what happened because of your actions back then? Your wife and baby lost their lives!”
When Adrian heard the last sentence, he froze for a moment before looking at Layne incredulously. “Layne…what are you saying?”
What do you mean?
Was Kaylee pregnant?
Layne nodded in shock and sighed with regret, “Yes, she was already pregnant back then.”
“The three–month–old child has formed, it has life and also has limbs and consciousness…”
Adrian tightly clasped his hands together under the long sleeves of his suit.
He actually had a child. He was thirty years old when he married Kaylee Skinner, while his wife was twenty–seven years old. Eight years after marriage, they still did not have any children.
Therefore, Adrian never expected to have one.
Kaylee was an older pregnant woman at the time, and she herself was very uncertain, afraid that it would all be for nothing in the end.
She kept it a secret and planned to share the joy with her husband after the fetus was stable.
As a result, she never had this opportunity again.
She and her child died at the hands of her husband!
Adrian finally felt a hint of pain. He didn’t easily admit his mistakes, but in this matter, he was wrong.
Looking at Adrian crying sadly in front of him, Layne softened a bit..
He patted Adrian’s shoulder and said, “It’s okay. Everything has passed. It’s no use crying over spilt milk
“It’s all my fault! If only I hadn’t made such a mistake back then…”
‘If I hadn’t done that, I wouldn’t be alone now, and I might even have a grandchild around the same age as Cheyenne.‘ Adrian thought sadly. “Enough, stop crying,” Layne impatiently shouted, finally putting an end to his tears. But he still had watery eyes.
After a while, Adrian took out an old book from his suit pocket and placed it on the table. The book was torn in half with no cover. It looked even more worn out than the books at the junkyard because Adrian had brought it with him for over 20 years.
“Layne, this is the first half of the medical secrets book. I was wrong to take it away before and caused damage to the Edwards family.”
“Now it’s time to return it to its owner.” His expression was serious as he sat upright with clear eyes that gave nothing away.
Layne didn’t reach for the book right away but instead scrutinized him carefully before speaking in a cold voice, “Do you really mean it?”
“If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself,” Adrian replied.
Layne flipped through a couple of pages and confirmed that it was indeed an authentic piece.
But he couldn’t believe that Adrian would just return the book without any conditions. If he had been willing to do so, he wouldn’t have disappeared for twenty–five years.
“So what’s your condition?” Layne asked.
Adrian blushed and looked embarrassed. “Well, Layne…it’s not really a condition. You see, I’ve been working for the Todd family for over twenty years now. I watched their young master grow up.”
“But unfortunately, he got into a car accident a few years ago and broke his leg. Doctors from both home and abroad have tried to cure him but to no
Adrian had come here seeking medical help for someone else.
Layne was surprised because Adrian was always someone who put his own interests first and foremost.
“You couldn’t find a solution either?”
Adrian looked even more embarrassed
s he replied, “No, I can’t. My medical skills haven’t improved anymore ever since I was kicked out of our family.”
Out of all the Edwards family members, Adrian knew that Layne was the best in medicine.
Otherwise, he wouldn’t have convinced Kai to return home.
After some consideration, Layne agreed.
“If that’s your condition, then I agree. Let me find a time to go see Master Iker.”
Adrian was overjoyed. Layne never broke his promise, and if he promised to go see Iker, he would definitely go.
He didn’t have to worry anymore.
“Thank you for agreeing, Layne. You can continue with what you were doing. I’ll let my boss know and inform you of the time and place later.”
