Before Finnick could finish, Benedict arrived at the scene in a rushed manner.
“He’s here.” Finnick turned around and told Vivian.
“How’s Evelyn doing?” Benedict instantly asked Finnick.
“She’s still in the operating ward. Don’t worry, she should be fine.” Finnick gave Benedict a reassuring look.
When Benedict heard that from Finnick, he breathed a long sigh of relief. Evelyn is my only family now, please don’t let anything bad happen to her.
“Finnick, thank you for sending Evelyn to the hospital and I’m sorry for misunderstanding you previously.” Benjamin stared at Finnick gratefully.
When he heard Evelyn speak about the fire incident, Benedict realized that he had always been wrong about Finnick. Finnick did not abandon her at all.
Benedict was ashamed when he thought of his mistreatment towards Finnick, and even more so when he picked on and humiliated him over the years.
“It’s alright, you have your reasons for thinking that way.” A rare smile emerged on Finnick’s lips as he replied. Perhaps he was relieved once the misunderstanding had been cleared up.
Having no more words to say, Benedict laid his hand firmly on Finnick’s shoulder. Then, he lifted his head and looked anxiously at the entrance of the operating room.
Vivian noticed that the prevailing hostile aura that was present when the two were together had disappeared, and it was replaced by a sense of brotherhood instead.
After waiting for a while, the door to the operating room finally opened. While seeing Evelyn being pushed out of the room, Benedict rushed towards the doctor and began asking questions.
“Don’t worry, the patient has no major problems. She just needs to wake up and everything will be fine.”
After hearing the doctor’s words, the three of them instantly felt relieved. Having thanked the doctor, Vivian and the others went to Evelyn’s ward.
Evelyn was still unconscious at that moment.
“There are still some matters at the company I need to attend to, I’ll make a move first.” After seeing that Evelyn was fine and Benedict was there to look after her as well, Finnick announced that he was heading back to the company.
“Alright, you should go back to your work then.” Benedict was also well aware that Finnick was a busy person.
As he nodded to Benedict, Finnick extended his hand to Vivian and said, “Let’s go.”
Vivian hesitated for a moment, then said, “Please go ahead. Since I’ve taken the day off and there’s nothing for me to do, I’ll stay here and wait for Evelyn to wake up.”
Finnick replied, “Alright, call me when you want to go back later and I’ll have Noah pick you up.”
“Understood.” Vivian was touched by Finnick’s thoughtfulness.
Finnick glanced at Benedict one more time before leaving the ward.
Seeing Finnick had left, Vivian turned around and met Benedict’s gaze.
Vivian was slightly confused about how Benedict was staring at her as she asked, “What’s the matter?”
He smiled a little, “Nothing. It’s just that I think you are very generous. Evelyn and Finnick used to be lovers after all, and I never expected you to get along with her so well and still care about her so much.”
Vivian smiled bitterly when she heard Benedict’s words. What else can I do besides being understanding and generous? Or should I cry or argue with Finnick instead? If I do that, not only it wouldn’t change a thing, Finnick would even hate me.
“Evelyn has mentioned before that she will not interfere with my relationship with Finnick, hence it is only right for me to care about her as her friend.”
When Benedict heard Vivian’s words, he became silent. Then he said in a low voice, “No matter what, make sure you keep an eye on your husband.”
“What do you mean?” Vivian heart sank as she wondered why Benedict said that to her.
As Benedict sighed, he said to Vivian, “Evelyn and Finnick had a very close relationship indeed. Every man’s first love has a special place in their heart. Also, I’m reminding you for your own good, so be careful.”
It surprised Vivian that Benedict would tell her that. Even though Evelyn was his sister, he reminded Vivian to be careful around her. Benedict seemed to be advising her for her own good after all.
Even though Benedict was Evelyn’s brother, Vivian felt that the both of them were very different. After thinking how Evelyn had provoked her previously, Vivian felt that she was vindictive and it was impossible for her to like her.
