Pearl was aware of her poor health. That was one of the reasons she was carefully consideringwhether to keep the child.

However, from Hugo's tone, it seemed he believed her body couldn't handle the childbirth.

Pearl clenched her fists, maintaining her composure. "What else do you know?"

"I know more than you think. I'm here to remind you because I don't want anything to happen toyou," Hugo said with genuine concern.

Pearl was skeptical, and she wasn't about to be swayed by his empty promises. "Well, you bettergive me a good reason for that."

"Do you believe what I've said?"

"I'll try."

Pearl suddenly realized Hugo expected her to doubt him, which is why he hadn't shared thisinformation earlier.

Hugo smiled wryly. "I knew you wouldn't believe me, but for your health's sake, I have to tell you.When Mister Howard treated you, he was cautious because, even though you look fine, your bodycouldn't handle the stress of childbirth."

As for his intentions, he probably didn't want her to have the baby out of selfishness.

Pearl's thoughts were in turmoil. Then, a person came to mind, and her eyes slowly lit up withrealization.

Three hours later, Pearl arrived at a villa's doorstep on the city's outskirts. She handed the driver afew bills and said softly, "Keep the change."

The driver was overjoyed, thanking her profusely before driving off.

Pearl straightened her clothes, took a few steps forward, and gently knocked on the door. Afterthree knocks, no one answered.

Frowning, Pearl pushed the door open. It wasn't locked, indicating someone was home.

After thinking for a moment, Pearl went to the backyard, where she found an older man bent over,tending to the flowerbed. Standing on the steps, she called out casually, "Hey, old man."
