Mr Ceo’s Pregnant Ex-Wife - Chapter 170 - TILL WE MET AGAIN
You don’t need to
promise me the moon
and stars. Just promise
me you will stand under
them with me forever.
After explaining everything the Doctor left to continue his rounds for tonight. When the door closed, silence reigned inside the private room.
None of us said a word. Slowly, we let what the doctor said sank to our brains. The news was painful to all of us but it has a different impact to me. I feel my world turning upside down and now, the guilt hangs heavily upon my shoulders.
I should be there in the emergency room instead of him. I should be the one suffering instead the man I love. It’s killing me thinking that in order to save me he suffered like this.
I don’t know if Ace would be okay…. Asking myself that question was enough to torture me.
My thoughts were scattered to the wind when father cleared his throat. The silence that draped all over the room dissolved.
I look up to him and saw that his face is were now void of emotion. “Let’s see Ace now before he leaves.” He said.
I closed my eyes firmly when I heard him say the word ‘leave.’ The word were like acid that severely burning my heart.
The last of the hope that was left in me dissolved by Ace’s impending departure. I couldn’t help as anguish spread all over my face.
I’d lost Ace before and now I’m loosing him again. I thought bitterly as I swallowed the huge lump in my throat.
God knows how bad I wanted to come with him to US but it was impossible. Because I have children to take good care of. I couldn’t bring them to US because Ace would not want his children to see him suffer. Especially Vien, he would not want her to know about his condition because he know that it will surely break her heart. She’s just a child and she’d suffered enough because of Ace’s cunning step brother. He didn’t want to add up to her heartaches.
“Yes…. I want to see him one last time.” I respond after finding my voice.
Claire wordlessly nodded her head and hastily walk towards the door and opened it for us. She then lead the way to the seemingly endless hallway while father pushed the wheelchair behind her.
After walking around the hallways Claire finally stopped in a particular room with wide open glass window. I peeked right through the window and there I saw Ace lying on the bed with various apparatus attached to his body.
My heart broke into million pieces after seeing his condition. If it weren’t for the breathing machines attached to him, he would be dead.
I want to cry and pour the heaviness of my chest out but I was surprised that my eyes were completely dry as if it was tired of crying.
Beside me, Claire starts to sob again. Father pulled her close and he allowed her to cry in his chest.
I shifted my gaze back to Ace and helplessly watch him on the glass window. I want to come inside, and kiss him hard before I say my heart-wrenching goodbye.
All I could do now is watch him over a distance and keep the memory forever in my mind. Once he leaves I don’t know if he will return but I’m hoping ang praying it would survive.
Once he’s away, I don’t know how will I handle the loneliness and pain that would
come troubling me once I stopped seeing him.
I let go a deep breath and watched as the the doctor and three medical staff prepare his departure.
The scene is too painful that words weren’t enough to describe how I feel as I watch them transfer Ace’s body into a much comfortable bed.
A hand laid on my shoulders. Automatically my eyes flew to my side to know who it was.
“I’m sorry, I arrived at the scene too late. If only I came earlier I could have save Ace’s life.” It was Lucas Nicholas trying to provide me a bit of comfort.
“It’s not your fault.” I replied quickly…. It’s all my fault why he’s in a coma…. I want to add but I closed my mouth firmly and kept the words to myself.
“Somehow, I feel as if it was my fault.” He said truthfully and he looked across the glass window with a distant look upon his eyes.
He’s hurting badly, I realized as I look at him. If there’s someone that could understand him now it was me. What he feel is exactly what I feel now.
My gaze shifted back to Ace. The medical staff were done checking his vitals. They are now pushing his bed to the door.
“We’re leaving now.” Lucas Nicholas said, trying to sound as calm as possible.
Upon hearing his words Claire start to sob. Her cries only intensified when the door fluttered open and the medical staff push Ace’s bed out the room.
This was the saddest goodbye I have to say, I told myself as the bed he was lying slowly passed by in front of me. No formal goodbye. Not even a kiss. I wasn’t even allowed to touch him.
“Just trust in him… he’s going to survive this.” Lucas Nicholas said optimistically and tapped my shoulder one last time before walking away.
I looked intenlty at Ace’s face. My eyes drifting to his pale lips then to his closed eyes. “Goodbye, my love. I will continue to love you even if we’re miles and miles apart.” I whispered weakly and without me knowing tears slowly slithered down my flushed cheeks.
My eyes slowly closed and he was still there on my imagination. However, when my eyes flutter open, he was gone.
The last of my strength escaped my body and my legs collapsed to the floor. Sobs coming from me began to fill the hallway.
The next time I see Ace, I will make sure we will have our happy ever after.. I vowed to the heavens.
