To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 11

Chapter 11 Better Not to Meet Again

On the car ride away from the hospital, Faye’s question was still on Alec’s mind.

Why did he seem to care so much about Jenny? He couldn’t figure out why. Perhaps her strange behavior intrigued him, and he wanted to find out why. Maybe that was all.

Suddenly, his phone rang, jarring him from his thoughts. He scratched his forehead in annoyance and answered the call.


“Mr. Faust, I have examined your activities for the past five years, and you haven’t met Dr. Walter in any of them. But the strange thing is that no one knows where Dr. Walter went after she retired two years ago, so it was hard to find out her activities for the past two years. Why don’t we ask Mr. Wagner for help?”

Paul Wagner was an expert when it came to matters of the underground. Whereas they couldn’t get the information they wanted through ordinary means, he might have a shot at it. That was the reason Vincent made that suggestion.

After a long silence, Vincent thought Alec would agree. To his surprise, Alec replied, “There’s no need for that. She’s just a doctor, and we don’t need to pay her so much attention.”

Did that mean he didn’t need to investigate any further? However, before he could confirm that, the call ended. While he felt helpless, he knew better than to ask Alec.

A few days later, Jenny facilitated the hospital discharge procedure for Faye.

“Although the tumor has been removed, we cannot be certain that a relapse will not occur. So, please attend check-ups regularly, and make sure you take care of your health,” Jenny reminded her in the hospital lobby.

“Okay,” Faye nodded. “Thank you, Dr. Walter.”

“How are you going home? Are you going to hail a cab?”

Jenny was a little surprised that no one had come to pick her up.

She hadn’t seen Alec for several days. Contrary to her expectations, he did not show up when Faye was discharged from the hospital. It made her wonder if he genuinely cared about Faye.

Just then, Faye pointed to an approaching car and said, “Alec is picking me up.”

Jenny turned to look in the direction she was pointing at, where the car stopped next to them, and Alec got out of the car. It had been a few days since they last met. As usual, he was wearing a stoic expression, showing no signs of happiness or anger.

“Is everything completed?” he asked Faye.

“Yes, it’s all thanks to Dr. Walter. She took care of everything for me,” Faye replied, her eyes darting back and forth between Alec and Jenny.

She remembered the question she had asked Alec a few days ago. Although he didn’t answer her, she had an inkling that he felt a certain way toward Jenny. However, at present, Alec didn’t appear interested in Jenny at all, which made her wonder if she had been overthinking.

Alec opened the door to the car and said, “Let’s go.”

“Okay,” Faye nodded. “Goodbye, Dr. Walter. I hope we meet again.”

“I think it’d be better if we didn’t meet again,” she replied with a laugh as she waved them away. After all, she was a doctor, so meeting her again meant bad news.
