Sir, Madam Dispeared Again After Divorce! novel Chapter 639

As soon as Sydney heard Julien's words, she paused in her actions of putting on hand cream. She remained silent for quite some time before asking, "Didn't Finn mention that we should focus our investigation on doctors that treat ALS and hospitals that provide medical treatment for those patients? How did that go? Is there no news, either?"

Julien nodded. "They didn't find any organizations or doctors that took in any new ALS patients. There were also no records of any outpatient treatment for ALS. As such, the investigation team concluded that Lyra had no intention of seeking treatment for the abnormality she experienced."

Upon hearing that, Sydney frowned. "She has no intention of treating her condition? Is she crazy?"

ALS is one of the worst terminal illnesses in this world. Currently, there is no cure for this disease. The treatment plan available is simply to keep the symptoms under control.

Once one was diagnosed with ALS, if one didn't seek treatment as soon as possible, one would swiftly develop stiffness in their body, followed by muscle atrophy. Finally, their whole body would become paralyzed. These patients ended up dying of torment.

Lyra had switched her identity to run away and avoid going to jail. And she wasn't someone who didn't treasure her life.

On the contrary, she should be someone who treasured her life very much. After all,

Lyra always wanted Sydney dead.

Since Sydney was not dead, how could Lyra die first?

Thus, Sydney couldn't figure out why Lyra did not seek medical treatment.

Even if Sydney didn't understand why Lyra did this, Sydney didn't intend to keep thinking about it, which was too nerve-racking.

She continued to apply her hand cream and said, "Let's not think about all this.

Wherever she is, as long as she has ALS, she will eventually expose herself. It's quite late now, so why don't you go to bed first?"

Sydney planned to get in bed after Julien had fallen asleep.

She would feel awkward if she got in bed while Julien was awake.

However, he didn't listen to her. Instead, he lifted her quilt and patted her side of the bed. "It is quite late now. Come on."

Sydney's mouth twitched when she saw him looking forward to her going to bed.

In the end, Sydney shook her head. "No. You should go to sleep. I'll go to bed once you're asleep."

Instantly, Julien understood the meaning behind her words. He realized that she was shy!

Furthermore, they were neither in a relationship nor married to each other. Given her shy personality, she couldn't get into bed as naturally as him.

That was why she wanted to wait for him to fall asleep before going to bed. By doing so, she could avoid further awkward moments between them.

However, Julien refused to listen to her this time.

Although the heater was on, she should go to bed now.

He didn't know when he would be able to fall asleep, so he couldn't bear to let her sit out there in the cold.

"Be good. Come on. If you don't get into bed, then I won't go to sleep either. Let's see whose patience will run out first. "After saying that, he took out his phone and started scrolling through it.

Sydney didn't expect him to be so stubborn. At that moment, she was so angry that her eyes widened.

She knew that he did it on purpose to force her to get into bed while he was awake.

Sydney thought, 'Hmph! I won't let him

have his way!'

Sydney sat at her vanity table and crossed her arms. She stared at Julien while waiting for him to fall asleep.

Julien knew that she was staring at him, but he pretended not to see it. Then he scrolled through his cell phone with his thumb.

The two of them seemed to be competing with each other at the moment. Sydney was waiting to see when he would fall asleep.

Julien was waiting to see how long she would continue waiting there.

Since she wanted to play this staring game, he would play it along with her.

After all, he was quite keen to know who would be the winner.

At that point, both of them stopped speaking. The big room was so quiet that one could even hear the sound of a pin dropping to the ground.

Sydney had been praying silently that Julien would fall asleep soon.

However, Julien refused to go to sleep. And he seemed to be quite awake.

Upon seeing that, Sydney was quite exhausted.

Then she wondered how long she would wait for him to fall asleep.

She then lowered her eyes to hide the bitter smile in her eyes.

But even so, she couldn't give up, so she took a deep breath and continued to wait.
