Chapter 51: Chapter 48: Just go! Don’t bother me, it’s none of my business!
After leaving the Lewis residence, Richelle Dunn received a call from Mr. Chapman on the road.
Mr. Chapman told her that Diana Thompson’s various physical indicators had stabilized, and she had been transferred from the ICU to the VIP ward early in the morning.
She changed her course and drove to the hospital.
At lunchtime, Richelle ate something in the hospital cafeteria before joining Mr. Chapman to visit Diana Thompson.
“She woke up this morning for a while, and her mood was stable at the time. Although she couldn’t remember many things, her thoughts were clear.” Richelle looked at Diana, who was lying in bed, “Does she recognize people?”
Mr. Chapman nodded, “Her brother and sister-in-law were here this morning. She spoke slowly, but logically.”
“When will Dr. Devin do the evaluation?”
“Well see if tomorrow is possible. She wakes up several times a day, each time longer than the previous one, and her mood has been stable so far.”
Richelle walked closer and saw Diana’s hand exposed outside the blanket. Naturally, she grabbed her hand and stuffed it back into the blanket.
Whether it was because she touched the wound or startled Diana, she let out a low groan and slowly opened her eyes.
Richelle assumed she was back to normal and leaned in closer, asking her softly.
“Mrs. Lewis, how are you feeling right now? Is there anything uncomfortable?”
Diana’s gaze followed the sound and looked at her. Her confused face suddenly turned fierce, and she struggled to move her body backward.
Just like last time, the same scene happened again.
Richelle frowned and quickly stepped back. Mr. Chapman was also startled and hurriedly rang the bell for assistance.
Diana waved her arms in the air and shivered, screaming desperately.
“Go away! Leave me alone! It’s not my business! Get away! Please! Don’t bother me!”
Two tall male doctors came in and quickly subdued her.
She screamed and shouted for a while and then curled up, starting to weep softly.
She muttered to herself, saying things that no one could understand.
Richelle and Mr. Chapman shook their heads helplessly and left the room together.
“It seems she’s really gone mad.”
Mr. Chapman drew the conclusion, and the two discussed for a while, agreeing that once Diana’s health had improved, her family should transfer her to a mental hospital for professional evaluation and follow-up treatment.
Richelle sat in the director’s office for a while and discussed the situation of other critically ill patients. Then she drove home.
When she got home, Timothy and Tifanny were still napping. Richelle took a shower and, seeing there was still some time, sat down at her computer, logged into the system, and continued her ongoing difficult task.
Father Gold was a straightforward man. After receiving her initial results, he immediately added ten times the deposit.
Obviously, the other party was in a hurry to wait for her data to solve some tough cases.
Richelle was a person of her word. With the money in hand, she worked tirelessly to meet the deadline.
In the bedroom, the keyboard clicked as Richelle focused intently. She was so engrossed that she didn’t hear the doorbell ring.
Timothy and Tifanny had already gotten up, and they sat on the couch, their legs swinging as they nibbled on apples. Hearing the doorbell ringing, they immediately cheered, “It’s big brother!”, and scampered off the couch to run out.
Mrs. Walker, who was in the kitchen, also heard the doorbell and hurried out to open the door. With her long legs, she managed to open the door before the two children.
Seeing Roy Lewis outside, she quickly stepped forward to shield the children behind her.
“Timothy, Tifanny, Mr. Lewis and Mr. Timmy are here. Go wake up Mommy.”
Having experienced this situation a few days ago, Mrs. Walker already knew how to handle it.
Hearing Roy Lewis was outside, Timothy and Tifanny scurried back to the bedroom.
Mrs. Walker then opened the door, letting an impatient Roy Lewis and a stone-faced little master in.
Roy Lewis was in a hurry to return to the company to handle affairs and only stood in the hall, peeking into the living room.
“Where’s Dr. Dunn?”
Mrs. Walker said hastily, “She was a little tired when she came back. She said she would take a nap, and 1 will go wake her up now.”
Roy Lewis uttered in agreement, not asking further, just stooping down and telling Little Master,
“1’11 pick you up tonight!”
After that, he said to Mrs. Walker, “Mrs. Walker, Timmy and I will have dinner here tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience!”
Although Mrs. Walker knew that Richelle Dunn wasn’t very welcoming to Roy Lewis, she was just a nanny, and it was not her place to refuse, so she nodded and said,
When Richelle Dunn came out of the bedroom, Mrs. Walker pulled her aside, away from Little Master, and told her about Roy Lewis having dinner here tonight.
Richelle Dunn had a big headache, pondered for a moment, and finally decided to call Roy Lewis.
Of course, she was not foolish. She would never refuse such matters directly.
When Roy Lewis received Richelle Dunn’s call, his car was almost back to the Lewis Group.
“Anything you need?”
Richelle Dunn tried to make herself sound more natural, “Mr. Lewis, I’ve been so busy lately, 1 haven’t taken Timothy and Tifanny out for a while. Today, the weather is nice, and I just discussed with the kids about an outdoor lesson this afternoon. We’ll have dinner outside, and around eight o’clock, we’ll send Timmy back to your place.”
Richelle Dunn’s decision had grounds, but Roy Lewis always felt something was wrong.
“Where’s the location?”
Richelle Dunn mentioned the location, which was at least an hour and a half’s drive from the Lewis Group.
Roy Lewis quickly dismissed the idea of picking up, “Alright, be careful, and if it’s too late, send a location, and I’ll ask Uncle Axel to arrange for someone to pick you up.”
Richelle replied okay, then hung up the phone and took a long breath of relief.
When the kids heard that they were going to have an outdoor lesson in the suburbs, they were excited and bounced into the bedroom to pack.
Soon, the children appeared wearing identical small backpacks, their favorite masks, and holding hands.
Richelle Dunn looked at the well-behaved children, feeling both sad and distressed.
In fact, they had done nothing wrong, but they can’t show their true faces to people at the same time.
“Babies, when we get to the suburbs where no one is around, we can take off our masks!”
Timothy, wearing a tiger mask, laughed and shook his head, “It doesn’t matter if we don’t take it off. It’s cool like this!”
Little white-rabbit-masked Tifanny also laughed, “Yes, it’s cute, 1 like it!”
Little Master wearing a lion mask also said, “The lion is very impressive!”
The children’s faces were filled with brilliant smiles, the joy and laughter coming from the heart.
Richelle Dunn felt guilty, bent down, and kissed each child on the head. Then she took a deep breath, trying hard to drive away that little bit of depression deep in her heart.
“Alright, little friends, report what you brought with you?”
As an elder brother, Little Master was the first to raise his hand, “Report, 1 brought a remote control airplane and a remote control car.”
Timothy also raised his hand, “Report mommy, I brought a kite and a ball.”
Tifanny also raised her little hand, “Report mommy, Tifanny brought a Barbie doll and a flute.”
Mrs. Walker had already brought out a large box of food by that time, so she mimicked the children’s actions and laughed.
“I brought a lot of delicious food, unlimited supply!”
As soon as they heard there would be delicious food, the children cheered in unison.
Then, they took off their masks together, revealing three identical, beautiful, and adorable little faces!
