On the other hand, Jonathan had made it to the top floor. Lucian was waiting outside the ward after. sending Estella back to her ward. “How is Dr. Jarvis now? How did she get poisoned all of a sudden?”
Jonathan had been to Roxanne’s research institute, so he knew full well that the personnel and equipment there were up to safety standards. As such, he believed a poisoning incident like this shouldn’t even happen at all..
Since Lucian was facing his own friend, he was able to drop his guard and said in an exhausted voice, “I’m not sure. She doesn’t know how it happened either.”
Jonathan decided not to press on when he saw the frustrated look in Lucian’s eyes. “May I visit her?”
Lucian glanced at the ward and hesitated for a bit before nodding in response. “I’m not sure if she’s awake, but you can go in and see her if you’d like.”
Roxanne’s mind was filled with Lucian’s words. from earlier, so she was wide awake when the two of them entered the ward. Unsure of how she would face Lucian, she decided to avoid him by closing her eyes and pretending to be asleep..
“Dr. Jarvis?” Jonathan called out to her softly. Realizing that he was here to visit her, Roxanne hesitated for a few seconds before opening her eyes. “Mr. Queen?”
Jonathan breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that she was awake. “Oh, thank goodness! I was about to leave because I thought you were asleep.”
Roxanne let out a nervous chuckle and tried her best to avoid looking at Lucian, who was standing next to him…
Naturally, Lucian had seen through what she was thinking and kept quiet as he stood there. “How are you feeling?” Jonathan asked. worriedly.
Roxanne flashed him a grateful smile as she replied, “I’m all right. Just a little tired, that’s all. Sorry for making you worry.”
Jonathan frowned slightly when he heard that. “Oh, come on, there’s no need for you to apologize! I didn’t dare tell my grandfather about this because I doubt his heart can take it. You may think of this as me visiting you on his behalf. I came here in a hurry, so I didn’t have time to buy you a gift basket or anything.”
Roxanne burst out laughing when she heard that. “By the way, do you really not know how this incident happened?” Jonathan continued. Roxanne lowered her gaze and shook her head in response.
She felt as though someone had caused it, but the experiment was only managed by Jack, Colby, and herself. Jack was a member of the Damaris family and the person in charge of the experiment, so he had no reason to sabotage it.
Having known Colby for many years, Roxanne knew he was a dependable person and didn’t think he would do such a thing either.
Besides, Colby was the first to notice something was wrong with the experiment, so it was unlikely that he had sabotaged it.
Jonathan stared at her doubtfully as he figured Roxanne would surely know something about it. However, he also knew that he was in no position to press her for answers if she didn’t feel like talking.
After a few seconds of awkward silence, Jonathan let out a casual chuckle and said, “This sure is a mystery! Well, since this incident occurred in your research institute, I’ll let you handle it when you’re all better. For now, all you have to do is focus on making a speedy recovery!”
Roxanne simply forced a smile at him in response. “All right, I’ll be taking my leave now so you can get some rest,” Jonathan continued and waved goodbye at her.
Roxanne nodded and watched as he walked out the door. Her gaze then fell upon Lucian as she wondered if he was the one to get Jonathan to ask her those questions earlier.
Lucian, who was on his way out of the ward as well, paused and turned around when he noticed her staring at him.
Realizing that he had caught her in the act, Roxanne quickly retracted her gaze and pulled the blanket over herself to hide her awkwardness.
