“You can, but it’s not recommended for her to have a heavy diet at the moment. After all, Miss Tessa’s body is still weak. So, let’s take it slowly by giving her some nutritious soup first.”
The doctor agreed and also advised Stefania, to which she nodded and expressed that she would take his words to heart.
At the same time, Remus overheard the conversation that she had with the doctor after rushing over from his ward when he learned that Tessa was awake.
As Remus stood at the door, he immediately instructed lan, “Call the kitchen at home in a while and pass the message to prepare a nutritious meal daily for Miss Tessa.” “Yes, I’m on it.”
After he acknowledged Remus’ instructions, he took his cell phone and went aside to make the arrangements. Gregory was the first to notice Remus’ presence and happily greeted, “Great-Grandpa, are you here to see Mommy?”
As soon as he said those words, everyone turned to look at Remus and greeted him one after another. “Dad, why are you here? Why didn’t you tell us?”
Stefania hurriedly stepped forward with concern as she tried to support Remus.
Remus did not reject her help and entered the ward while saying grumpily, “I just happened to come over and wanted to take a look. Besides, it’s just a short distance from my ward, so why should I tell any of you?”
As he spoke, his gaze fell on the bed, and he couldn’t help frowning.
Just like everyone else, he felt that Tessa was looking rather gaunt and asked in worry, “How do you feel? You need to speak up if you’re uncomfortable. Don’t hide your discomfort, alright?”
“I will, Old Master Sawyer. Thanks for your concern.” Tessa was flattered and sincerely thanked Remus for his concern. He’s worried about me, so does that mean he’s accepted me?
He had no idea what she thought. When he saw the tender smile on Nicholas’ lips, he had mixed feelings. He initially was not optimistic about Tessa as his granddaughter-in-law, but he was now convinced.
It was especially so after Remus thought about the dangerous car accident when Tessa protected the two kids without any hesitation. Her action had left him with a sense of guilt.
“I should be the one thanking you. We’d have lost both kids if it hadn’t been for you.”
“Please don’t say that. Protecting the kids is my responsibility.” Tessa smiled and shook her head to dismiss his guilt. He also knew that mothers had the innate instinct to protect their children.
He nodded and changed the topic while looking at her suddenly. “Speaking of which, the car accident is somewhat related to me, so I want to sincerely apologize to you. I’m so sorry.”
She was shocked when Remus said those words. Everyone else at the scene was just as astonished because they never expected a domineering person like Remus Sawyer would take the initiative to apologize to Tessa.
When she came to her senses, she immediately tried to interject, “Wanda did this. You have nothing to do with it, so you don’t have to apologize.
Nicholas had already told Tessa that Wanda was the mastermind as soon as she regained consciousness. She knew that Wanda wanted to kill her out of jealousy.
It was just that Remus clearly had other ideas and vehemently disagreed with her.
“After all, Wanda is only around because of me. It’s because I wanted to matchmake her with Nicholas. As a result, it caused you to be involved in such an accident.”
At that, he took a deep breath with eyes that indicated his deep remorse. If it weren’t for his actions and decisions, he wouldn’t have almost lost his great-grandchild.
Actually, Tessa felt rather complicated in the face of Remus’ heartfelt apology. But now that everything had happened and the perpetrators were about to receive their due punishment, she decided to be the bigger person and let go of any grudges she might bear, saying, “Everything’s in the past now.
Don’t blame yourself. It’s said that if you survive a catastrophe, you will be blessed in the future. So, I suppose the child and I will definitely have good luck.”
When he noticed the faint smile on Tessa’s pale face, he knew that she had never blamed him for the accident. Tears formed in his eyes as he said, “You’re right. If you survive a catastrophe, you will be blessed in the future. You and the child will have continuous good luck.”
He nodded as he smiled and agreed with her consoling words. Gregory watched from the side and stepped forward to wink. “Great-Grandpa, there’s also me. I’ll be blessed in the future too.”
