The Abandoned Wife (Lucian) novel Chapter 35

Chapter 35
Before Roxanne could react to the situation, Lucian supported her by the waist and stabilized her body.
When she raised her head, she saw his dark eyes.
As their gazes met, Roxanne’s body stiffened. Then she quickly looked away before standing back up by propping her hand on the bed and supporting herself.
He had grabbed her subconsciously when she fell. However, when he saw her avoiding him like the plague, the look in his eyes darkened. And so, he quickly withdrew the hand from her waist.
“How dare you say you researched complicated diseases before! Is this the result of your research? I think those credentials of yours were bought!” Frieda didn’t notice what was going on between the two of them and was still angry at Roxanne.
She stared at Jonathan furiously. “I think she’s a liar, Jonathan! We need to kick her out right now!”
When Roxanne heard that, she quickly snapped back to her senses and mocked, “No wonder Old Mr. Queen’s condition became so severe. It seems like someone’s been interfering with his treatment. Since you insist I’m wrong, I’m leaving right now.”
She then started to put the needles back into her bag.
No one expected she would back off so easily after she displayed a steeled determination to treat Alfred earlier.
Jonathan was stunned for a few seconds before snapping out of his daze and apologizing, “I’m really sorry, Dr. Jarvis. To be honest, our family consists of many doctors, so we know a little bit about acupuncture. My sister is angry probably because she thinks it’s dangerous for you to jab a needle at that acupuncture point and is worried about our grandpa. Please forgive her.”
Roxanne ignored him and continued to pack her things. “I don’t need to stay here and get scolded by someone who doesn’t know what I’m doing. I came here because I genuinely wanted to help Old Mr. Queen, but since Ms. Queen doesn’t believe me, forget about it!”
The moment she finished speaking, she picked up her medical kit and headed to the door.
In a panic, Jonathan carefully put Alfred down before chasing after her. “We can talk things out, Dr. Jarvis. My sister did go too far with her words, so I’ll ask her to apologize to you right now. Please continue your treatment on my grandfather.”
“There’s no need for that. I can’t accept Ms. Queen’s apology.” Roxanne’s tone was cold.
Lucian’s eyebrows were furrowed tightly as he stood at the side of the bed, staring at the back of her figure with a heavy expression.
He could tell she was really angry.
On the side, Estella was also able to tell Roxanne was angry. Panic filled her eyes.
I didn’t even get the chance to say hello to Ms. Jarvis yet, but now she’s leaving because she got angry…
Thinking of that. Estella got angry as well. To express her fury, she walked over to Frieda, wrote a word in her notebook, and then showed it to Frieda.
Many people’s attention was shifted to her sudden appearance and the word written in her book. which was “Apologize!”
Estella stared at Frieda with wide eyes.
Frieda was too embarrassed to back down then. Her line of sight casually shifted away from the notebook, and she pretended to not see Estella. Then she turned to her brother. “If it doesn’t work out, we can just find another doctor. I really can’t trust this person.”
When she saw how Frieda was still acting stubbornly, Roxanne’s expression turned colder as she mocked, “Then I hope you can find a doctor you like before Old Mr. Queen takes his last breath, Ms. Queen.”
She turned around and stepped out.
The moment she did that, however, someone grabbed her wrist.
Her eyebrows furrowed as she turned back unhappily to see who it was.
Lucian’s expressionless, handsome face appeared in front of her.
Shock filled her heart.
What is he… What is the meaning of this?
