A Contract Marriage With My Boss novel Chapter 27

Sarah was so shocked when she heard the news. Her hands started shaking so much that her phone almost slipped out from her hand. She quickly calmed down and listened again. Emma was still crying, "Sarah, can you still hear me? My brother is still in the hospital. I hope you can come back and see him. Recently, he has been in such a bad mood, he started drinking and now this has happened! Please, I beg you."

After a long time, Sarah cleared her throat and said, with her voice trembling, "I'm listening."

Hearing her voice, Emma cried even more and said frantically, "Please come back to see him. Maybe if he saw you, he would recover more quickly. Sarah, please come!"

"Is he all right?" Sarah asked.

"I don't know. He is still in the emergency room. He was badly hurt. His car drove into the rail of a bridge and smashed straight through it. His car almost fell into the river. When we found him, he was already unconscious. His head was bleeding, and the car was totally wrecked."

Emma's description of the incident startled Sarah. It was so vivid that she felt as if she could see it happening before her eyes. She then remembered her nightmare where Charles had jumped into the river from the bridge. She still hadn't forgotten this man, or she would never have had such a nightmare.

On the other end of the line, Emma was still crying and pleading for her to return. At last, Sarah answered, "I'll come back right now. I'm not sure if there are any flights, but I will try my best to come back as soon as possible."

Grateful for her promise, Emma finally hung up the phone.

Sarah quickly got up and then got changed. Once she had packed all her things up, it was three o'clock in the morning. Then, she quickly went to the airport by taxi. The earliest flight, however, was at five o'clock in the morning. She had no choice but to wait at the airport.

Sarah started to feel incredibly anxious, partly due to having nothing to do at the airport. As soon as she thought about the scene which Emma had described, she felt her heart breaking into a thousand pieces. Eventually, she became restless. In the last hour before the flight, she began pacing up and down the aisle beside her seat.
