Chapter 64: Am I Still Alive
Hiding in a corner, Ayla watched as Maria brought her meal into her room.She stared at the food blankly, with no appetite at all.
“Mrs.Clark, please eat now.You haven’t eaten the whole day, and your health condition is getting worse.If this goes on, your body will not be able to stand it,” Maria said, holding Ayla’s hand.
“No, don’t touch me!”
Ayla withdrew her hand and said, “You are a bad person.Don’t touch my baby and me.”
Seeing the horrified look on Ayla’s face, Maria couldn’t help asking, “Mrs.Clark, why have you become like this?”
But Ayla just ignored Maria.She held the pillow tightly and didn’t let anyone touch it.
Brian walked into the room and looked at Ayla.
Her hair was in disarray, and her face was pale and haggard.
He had already asked a doctor to come and give her a checkup.
The doctor said that she seemed not to accept what had happened to her.
Her mind escaped from reality because of the blow.
She would recover, but it needed time.
“Mr.Clark, you are back,” Maria greeted him.
“Mrs.Clark’s condition seems to be getting really worse.She hasn’t even eaten anything the whole day.Have you found a doctor to check on her again and treat her?”
She then looked at Ayla worriedly.
He walked over to Ayla and said, “Wake up, Ayla.If you go on like this, I’ll kill you!”
But Ayla’s face didn’t show any fear or horror at all.She just opened her eyes wide and looked at him in confusion.
But there was also no focus in her eyes.
He didn’t know where she was looking at, but he was sure that she didn’t see him.
It was as if she was looking at something through him.
“Mr.Clark, with your behavior, you may scare her,” Maria said, shaking her head helplessly and looking at the food in front of her that had gone cold.
“Get out of here now.If she doesn’t want to eat, take all the food with you.”
Maria picked up the food tray and walked out of the room.
When Brian heard the door closed behind him, he looked at Ayla, who was continuously muttering something.
“What do you want? Is this your way of protesting against me?”
He grabbed the pillow from her slender arms and threw it away.
There was no reaction from Ayla at first.
Even if he held her arms tightly, she still didn’t say anything.
But when her gaze landed on the pillow on the floor, she pushed him away forcefully and stood barefoot on the floor.She didn’t mind if she was only wearing thin pajamas.She picked up the pillow and said, “Baby, don’t be afraid.Mom is here.”
She then patted the pillow as if coaxing a baby.
Brian dragged her up.
“Do you want a baby so much? Okay then.I will give it to you as long as you can give birth to a baby.”
With her current condition, he knew that she couldn’t get pregnant.
And he didn’t want to give her a chance either.
But seeing her like this made his heart burn with anger.
He pulled her pajamas .When she still didn’t react, he pushed her.
“Do you want a baby? Do you think you are qualified?” Ayla looked at him in a daze.
She touched his face with her cold hand and said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t mean it.I really didn’t mean it.”
Brian didn’t know if she was talking to him.
Her emotionless face that looked like a dead fish made him lose his patience.
So he stood up, turned around, and left.
When he was gone, she put on her pajamas, held the pillow in her arms, and hummed a lullaby as if she was coaxing a baby to sleep.
In the entertainment club, Anna saw Brian walked in so she approached him.
“Brian, why are you here?”
“Bring me a bottle of wine,” he ordered as he walked into a VIP room and sat on the sofa.
“Are you in a bad mood because of Ayla?”
Anna asked as she walked into the VIP room with the bottle of wine.
She had also heard about what had happened to Ayla, and she thought that Ayla only deserved what she had become.
Ayla knew that Brian didn’t want a child, but she still dared to get pregnant.
Whether it was his child or not, he wouldn’t accept it.
She even tried to escape foolishly.
Had she forgotten how powerful he was? No one could hide from him.
Brian didn’t say a word and just drank the wine Anna handed to him.
Ayla had seriously affected his mood.
He became so irritable for no reason.
Anna sat beside him, poured wine into his glass, and drank with him.
“Won’t it be better if you let her go?”
He turned to look at her and said, “It’s none of your business.”
Letting Ayla go would actually save him from so much trouble.
He didn’t need to spend so much effort on her.But no matter what, he wanted her to stay by his side for the time being.He didn’t care even if she had gone insane.
“I know that it’s none of my business.I don’t want to interfere, but I don’t like seeing you like this.You are not happy at all.”
Anna took the glass from his hand and looked at him.
“Brian, I’ll accompany you tonight, okay?”
Since the last incident, Brian had been accompanying Ayla.She was very unhappy about it, but she couldn’t show it in front of him.
All she could do was accept it silently and continue helping him manage the club.
“I’m going home later.”
It seemed that he didn’t want to leave Ayla alone in the villa.
Seeing her like this always gave him a strange feeling in his heart.
If it was in the past, he would definitely kick her out and let her live and die by herself.
He never lacked women after all.
It had been a few days since the last snowfall.
And tonight, it was snowing heavily outside.
In the past two days, Ayla still didn’t say anything, but she started eating.
The whole villa was very quiet.
It was already midnight, and Brian wasn’t home yet.
Actually, she didn’t know if he would come home, and she didn’t care.
It didn’t stop snowing until three o’clock in the morning.
Still awake, she looked at the vastness of white outside her window.
Then wearing a white night robe, she ran downstairs without even putting on her slippers.
She walked barefoot on the snow without even feeling cold.
Soon enough, the whole garden was filled with her footprints.
Brian arrived home at six o’clock in the morning.
As soon as he got out of his car, he saw a petite figure in the garden that blended in the white snow.
If it weren’t for her long black hair, he could hardly see her.
He strode over, and he frowned when he saw Ayla lying on the snow, unconscious.He had tried his best to come home every day recently.
But he just didn’t come home for one night, and she became like this.
Maria went out of her little house behind the main villa.
She saw Brian walking into the main villa with the cold and unconscious Ayla in his arms.
“Mr.Clark, Mrs.Clark fainted.Shall I call the doctor?”
She was also startled when she saw that Ayla’s face and body had become blue and purple.
Ayla must have been outside in the cold for a long time.
Fortunately, Ayla was still breathing.
Otherwise, she would think that Ayla was already dead.
Brian took Ayla back to her room, took off her pajamas, and soaked her cold body into the bathtub with warm water.
Maria followed behind him with a bath towel in her hand.
“Mr.Clark, let me help warm Mrs.Clark up.”
‘My God! Why has Mrs.Clark become like this now?’ she thought.
These days, she always felt like Ayla would die at any time.
Brian took the towel and wiped his hands.
He then walked out of the bathroom and sat on the sofa.
The sky was still a little gloomy, and he felt like it was heavily pressing him down.
Ayla had been soaked in the bathtub for half an hour, but it seemed that she still didn’t get warm enough.
Maria raised the temperature to make the water warmer and rubbed her body for a long time.
It was only then that Ayla slowly opened her eyes.
When she saw the familiar bathroom, she asked, “Am I still alive?”
