Substitute Marriage With the Illegitimate Son novel Chapter 126

The scorching sunshine filtered through the curtains. The faint smell of disinfectant wafted in the air.

It had been a few weeks since Janet came to see Hannah. She felt a little guilty about not being able to see her often. Ever since Janet started working, she had been dealing with unfortunate incidents that seemed to take all her time.

Hannah's liver transplant surgery was scheduled for 10 o'clock today. Janet still had half an hour to talk with her.

"Don't be nervous. You won't feel any pain after they administer anesthesia."

Janet smiled and combed Hannah's gray hair.

Hannah gently patted Janet's hand and smiled at her. "I have no fear, my little girl. I know you're busy with work. You don't have to wait here for me. The nurses in the hospital are very considerate. You need to stop worrying about me."

Tears welled up in Janet's eyes. She knew Hannah was in so much pain, yet the old woman was smiling to make sure Janet didn't worry about her.

"Don't worry about me. I'm not a child." Janet couldn't help but smile at her.

Hannah suddenly pouted and flicked her gaze to the door. "That young man has been waiting outside for a long time. Why don't you let him in?" Janet turned around and saw Ethan leaning against the railing in the corridor. His gaze occasionally flitted toward them to see if they were okay.

Janet hadn't figured out how to introduce him yet.

"Nice to meet you." Ethan walked into the ward with a polite smile. He had changed into a brown windbreaker today. The man looked handsome as if he had come straight out of a magazine photoshoot.

Janet had never seen Ethan in such clothes before. She was taken aback for a moment.

After a moment's hesitation, she said, "This is Ethan. Well... You know about the marriage the Lind family had arranged for me."

Hannah wasn't aware of Janet's secret. She only knew the Lind family had arranged a man for Janet and that she was already married.

Hannah's face broke into an ecstatic smile as she examined Ethan's face. "Wow, what a handsome young man!" She patted Janet's hand. "He looks like a good, decent man. Janet, you are a lucky girl!"

Ethan smiled and glanced at the clock on the wall. "It's about time."

Janet's heart leaped to her throat when she saw the nurses wheeling Hannah into the operation theater. "She will be okay, right?" she asked in a tremulous voice.

"Yes, everything will be fine." Ethan patted her back comfortingly.

It was a long procedure that lasted all afternoon.
