Lewis knew Keira was trying to comfort him, so he played along and changed the subject.

Keira then began. “I was also abducted when I was a child and was locked up with an older brother…”

Abducted?

Lewis was slightly startled. “How old were you then?”

Keira was about to answer, but Madeleine suddenly coughed, and her body began to twist!

“Oh no! Blood has entered the trachea! Arrange for emergency thoracotomy immediately!”

Madeleine was issued the fifth critical condition notice.

Lewis’s attention was immediately diverted, and once again, he stared intently at the hospital bed.

Keira no longer had the mind to talk about the past.

It was hard to tell how much time had passed. It could have been three hours or perhaps five, but Madeleine was finally resuscitated.

When the doctor said there was no immediate danger to her life, Keira let out a huge sigh of relief.

She turned her head and saw Lewis’s clenched fists slowly relax…

Keira gently patted the back of his hand in reassurance.

Lewis then gave a wry smile.

Madeleine had fractures all over her body, and her internal organs were also ruptured in many places. When she was wheeled out of the operating room she seemed to regain some sense of feeling; even though she was unconscious,’she was flailing her arms and calling out, “Lewis…”

Her thrashing around made it impossible for the doctor and nurses to continue with the IV.

The doctor held her hand, but she kept calling out, “Big brother…”

She struggled vigorously, trying to grasp something.

The doctor urgently said, “Mr. Horton, we must calm her down or else we won’t be able to save the life we just brought back!”

Lewis gazed at her for a long time and finally stepped forward. “I’m here.”

The uneasy Madeleine immediately calmed down, seemingly sensing his voice and subconsciously grabbed Lewis’s hand.

Lewis tried to pull his hand away, but Madeleine immediately furrowed her brows. “Big brother…”

Those words reminded him of the little girl curling up in his arms to sleep when they were children.

Lewis paused.

The doctor beside him immediately made a pleading gesture. “Mr Horton we’ve barely snatched her back from the hands of death…”

Lewis tightened his jaw and glanced at Keira.

His eyes conveyed hesitation and conflict.

Keira clenched her fists tighter.

Without saying a word, she watched as Lewis accompanied Madeleine to the ICU with the doctor.

Keira stood outside the ICU, looking inside through a glass door.

She and Lewis were only a few meters apart, but that glass door seemed to isolate them from one another.

Doctors and nurses shuttled back and forth, checking Madeleine’s vital signs every half hour.

Lewis couldn’t hear the outside conversations.

But Keira could hear a group of specialist doctors discussing.

It s a medical miracle that we were able to save her life!”

“The mam thing is that Mr. Horton is willing to spend the money. She’s had the equivalent of four blood transfusions; she’s lucky to be alive. There was one bleeding point we couldn’t find, and in the end, we guessed, but luckily we guessed correctly!”

“But even though her life was saved, she’ll have a lifelong disability. I just don’t understand why she would do this to herself…”

“You just came for the consultation and didn’t understand. She was brought over from the mental hospital next door… I heard from her attending doctor…” The doctor looked around and then said,

“She has severe depression, and she simply can’t pull through, no matter how many medications she takes. It seems that her only hope for living was Mr. Horton… but Mr. Horton has now gotten married and doesn’t plan to see her anymore, so she attempted suicide…”

The people nearby immediately asked curiously, “What was her relationship with Mr. Horton?”

“They were said to be lovers. Mr. Horton has been treating her for five or six years, and they were previously abroad.”

“What? So Mr. Horton has fallen in love with someone else now?”

“Having a girlfriend with mental illness, who could bear that forever? It’s quite normal for him to move on…”

“But it still feels somewhat heartless. After all, he was the patient’s only hope Once he broke up with her, the patient couldn’t take it anymore…”

“Mr. Horton has already married publicly, hasn’t he? Why is it that the patient couldn’t take it just now?”

“I asked the attending doctor, and it seems Mrs. Horton wasn’t pleased Mr Horton told the patient that he wouldn’t see her again, and that’s why she was so upset and jumped off the building. The state she was in when she was brought here was unbearable to look at…”

A group of people chatted as they walked away, heading to another ward to continue their rounds.

However, these words made Keira tense her jaw, wanting to say something, yet not knowing what to say.

She understood Lewis.

He had chosen her over Madeleine, which moved her deeply.

But now, it wasn’t just about him; even seeing Madeleine lying on the hospital

bed was enough to make her own heart pound with fear!

That was a life!

Just yesterday, she was still alive and arguing with her, and today, her life hung by a thread…

But was a childhood promise really that important? Was Lewis supposed to let

a single promise drag down his entire life?

Keira suddenly thought of that “big brother.”

Her situation with that “big brother” was actually quite similar to Lewis and Madeleine’s situation.

Back then, she had saved that “big brother”, and he had promised to marry her and take her home to his family…

But over the years, that “big brother” had never come to find her.

Still, his words had indeed been her only hope to keep living after she returned home.

It was only as she grew up that she understood relying on others could never compare to relying on oneself.

She was doing well now, so she had moved on.

If she had been even slightly weaker or not strong enough, perhaps someone

else in her shoes wouldn’t have made it through, right?

She lowered her head, lost in thought.

“What are you thinking about?”

Lewis’s voice suddenly rang out. Keira lifted her head to see that Lewis had already appeared before her without her noticing.

The man looked tired, with a sense of powerlessness in his eyes.

Keira didn’t want to pressure him with things like “You promised yesterday that you wouldn’t see her anymore.”

She had never been the pitiful heroine of a story.

Keira blinked and then suddenly said, “I was thinking about the older boy I rescued when I was a child.”

Lewis sat down beside her. “What about him?”

Keira smiled. “I remembered he said he would marry me and even gave me a marriage token. But I don’t need it anymore, should I return it to him?”

Lewis paused for a moment, then suddenly asked, “What token?”

Keira blinked. “When I was a child, I didn’t understand. It was only after going back home this time that I realized it seemed quite valuable. It might even be a family heirloom or something…”

As she said that, she took out the well-preserved jade ring from her pocket..
