As it was getting late, Roxanne said, “Since Essie is all right, I‘ll take the kids back to rest first. Call me if you need me.”
She turned to leave after she finished speaking. However, when she walked past Lucian, the man grabbed her wrist, causing her to draw a sharp breath.
“Please examine her too,” Lucian said to the doctor. When Roxanne heard that, she rejected it at once. “There‘s no need for that.
I know my condition not injured and I just want to go home and rest.” Lucian refused to let go of her.
Having no choice, the woman walked toward the doctor and rolled up her sleeves, revealing an abrasion on her wrist which Lucian was grabbing a

Archie and Benny were even more worried as they exclaimed, “Mommy, you‘re injured!”
Roxanne flashed a comforting smile at the children while replying, “It‘s just a scrape. I‘m all right.”

Archie and Benny were the first ones to notice it. They rushed to the bed at once.
Looking at her excitedly, they exclaimed, “You‘re awake! Are you okay? Are you feeling unwell?”
Estella was still feeling groggy. She blinked a few times before she looked at the boys and shook her head.
Even though the two boys sensed something amiss, they ignored the feeling, as they were just too happy that Estella was awake.
They continued talking to her by the bed. Roxanne watched from the side for a while before stepping forward to caress Estella‘s face.

Lucian had a grim expression on his face as well as he looked at Estella.

“It‘s getting late. You guys should go back first,” Lucian said. Roxanne hesitated as a crease appeared between her brows.
She had intended to take the two boys home before knowing about Estella‘s condition.
However, after being aware of the situation, she found it difficult to leave.
When Estella heard her father asking Roxanne to leave, she grabbed the corner of the woman‘s shirt with a reluctant expression on her face.
“I‘ll stay here with you.” Roxanne held the girl‘s hand. Then she turned to Lucian and said, “I‘ll stay here and accompany Essie.
She should be hungry. Can you get someone to bring her some food?” Lucian agreed and instructed Cayden to get something for all of them to eat.
