Nathamel’s tall figure could be seen lying on the couch with his feet dangling off the armrest.
The atmosphere in the room felt incredibly tense as though he were a sleeping lion.
The medicine was neatly laid out on the coffee table, and the glass of warm water on the side had turned cold.
“What’s he trying to accomplish here? Gain sympathy?” Christina muttered under her breath with a pout.
She then brought in a jug of warm water, opened the box containing the medicine, and read its
Take two tablets orally, huh…
“Wake up, Nathaniel. It’s time to take your medicine,” Christina called out to him in a somewhat soft voice.
Like a statue made of stone, Nathaniel showed no response whatsoever.
Christina tried patting him on the cheek, only to realize his skin was as hot as boiling water.
Oh, my goodness! This high fever will probably damage his brain if we don’t treat it in time! My kids are definitely going to be laughed at for having a dimwit as a father!
She was hesitating about whether she should have Raymond feed Nathaniel the medicine when Madison. stormed into the room.
“Christina, you heartless b*tch! Are you trying to get Mr. Hadley killed?” she yelled while grabbing the glass of cold water on the coffee table and splashing it all over Christina’s face.
Infuriated, Christina splashed the hot water on Madison’s face in retaliation.
Christina showed no emotion whatsoever as she placed the glass, which was still somewhat warm, down on the table. “Who let you in here? You have been suspended from Hadley Corporation, so who are you to show up here like this?”
The tension in the room intensified instantly.
As Christina was the woman of the house at Scenic Garden Manor, she had every right to confront Madison.
“By entering this house without a legitimate purpose, you are technically trespassing on private property. I could call the police and have you arrested for this!” Christina continued with a look in her eyes as cold
“You have no right to abuse Mr. Hadley like this, Christina!” Madison had come rushing over the moment she heard about Nathaniel’s condition from Sebastian.
Her heart felt as though it was stabbed by a million needles when she saw Nathaniel lying on the couch. with his face all pale..
She hated Christina to the bone for toying with the man she had loved and protected for almost eight
It’s all Christina’s fault that I got suspended! I would never have let things get this bad if I knew about Mr. Hadley’s
Christina’s tone was dripping with sarcasm as she said with a snicker, “I enjoy abusing Nathaniel, and he enjoys being abused by me. If you’re able to make him leave me, do it. Otherwise, f*cking leave us alone!
The look on Madison’s face turned incredibly gloomy, but there was nothing she could do except glare daggers at Christina.
Christina then whipped out her phone and gave Raymond a call. A few bodyguards came marching into the room a few moments later.
“Who told you guys to let her in? I’ll have you all fired if something like this happens again!” Christina shouted angrily.
The only reason the bodyguards did not stop Madison from entering the house was because they knew her as Nathaniel’s assistant.
“Understood, Mrs. Hadley.” The bodyguards then walked up to Madison and said with conflicted looks on their faces, “Please leave, Ms. Taggart. Don’t make this any more difficult for us.”
Madison was seething with anger, but she could only leave with the bodyguards as she had no valid reason to stick around.
Just like that, the study fell into complete silence once again. Christina wiped the remaining water droplets off her face with a paper towel before shooting Nathaniel a cold glance. “See this? You’re the reason I have to put up with all this crap.”
She then fetched him another glass of warm water from the kitchen. This time, she also brought a bowl and a spoon with her.
Christina placed the pill in the bowl and crushed it with the spoon before dissolving it in a small amount
After preparing the medicine, she lifted Nathaniel’s head slightly and fed him the medicine using the
The pill tasted bitter after being crushed and dissolved in water, causing Nathaniel to frown slightly in
It was already in the wee hours of the morning by the time Christina was done feeding him the medicine. and tucking him in.
“Honestly, why do I keep putting up with your crap?” Christina mumbled to herself as she glanced at Nathaniel, who was sleeping soundly before leaving the room..
She woke up rather late the next morning.
Nathaniel was having breakfast at the dining table when she came downstairs.
“Here you go, Mrs. Hadley. Enjoy your breakfast!”
One of the housekeepers served up Christina’s breakfast the moment she sat down at the table.
“Thank you for looking after Mr. Hadley last night,” said Raymond with a chuckle.
The Gibson Family Might Be Involved.
Nathaniel paused and shifted his gaze toward Christina when he heard that.
He knew that someone was looking after him last night, but he thought it was Raymond instead.
Christina shot Raymond an annoyed glance. “If you’re so free, then why don’t you go weed the courtyard
Raymond stopped talking after that.
The courtyard was as huge as a soccer field, so an old man like him would probably die of exhaustion if he were to weed the entire courtyard.
Christina was getting ready to leave the house after breakfast when Nathaniel called out to her, “Where are you going?”
“You’ll know where I’m going once you ask my driver later,” Christina replied coldly.
Hmph! Don’t think our relationship has improved simply because I took care of you last night!
A deep frown creased Nathaniel’s brow when he heard that. Christina’s sudden change in attitude had truly caught him by surprise.
Raymond and the housekeepers kept their heads low when they sensed the tension rising at the dining table.
Christina then ignored him and walked right out of the house.
A few minutes after the car left the house, Nathaniel received a message from the driver that read: Mrs. Hadley is meeting a famous celebrity named Francis Fernando.
Nathaniel got so mad when he saw Francis’ name that he almost crushed his phone to bits.
Having witnessed what Christina was capable of doing yesterday, none of the staff dared insult her when she arrived at the mansion.
Penelope watched on as Christina rode the elevator straight to the third floor..
Mr. Fernando’s office is on the third floor! None of us would dare go there without his permission!
“What’s so great about Christina anyway? Why is she allowed access to the third floor?”
“She’s being far too arrogant! We should teach her a lesson!”
Penelope pulled those staff close and said with a vicious look in her eyes, “I have an idea that’ll make her think twice about messing with us…”
The windows in the spacious living room on the third floor provided a clear view of the scenery outside.
Francis had on a white dress shirt with the first button undone, which revealed his sexy Adam’s apple and exquisite collarbones. His outfit matched the black and white color theme of the living room, which gave off a somewhat solemn vibe.
“Would you prefer milk or orange juice?”
