Pursuing My Ex-Wife Isn’t Easy chapter 1734
Dr. Rachel curled her lips into a mischievous smile. ”We were talking about how you’re still a virgin.”
Theo’s face blushed scarlet when he heard this. He turned his head away and refused to give Dr.
Rachel a second glance. ”Well, if there’s nothing else…we should hang up now. I have to go to bed soon.”
With that, he hung up the call as quick as lightning.
On the other end of the line, Dr. Rachel could not help curling her lips into a smirk when the screen went dark.
”Still a virgin, huh?” she muttered under her breath, smiling.
”Dr. Liddell.” All of a sudden, her assistant knocked on the door. ”There’s a man from Merchant City outside who claims to be a relative of Rosalyn’s. He says his name is Quentin and wants to see her.”
Dr. Rachel furrowed her brows. A man was here to see Rosalyn?
The only family of Rosalyn’s that she knew of were Charles, Jim, and Luna, so where did this Quentin guy come from?
Dr. Rachel followed the assistant out of the room, her mind filled with questions.
A man in his mid-forties, dressed in black, stood in the lobby of Dr. Rachel’s research facility. He was dressed sensibly and had a kind smile, but for some reason, Dr. Rachel could not help feeling creeped out by him, as though he had brought the spine-chilling winter air with him.
Seeing that Dr. Rachel had arrived, the man smiled and extended his hand towards her. ”Dr. Liddell! Thank you so much for trying to help my sister. If she really wakes up from her coma, me and the Landry family will definitely pay you back for your kindness!”
Dr. Rachel was a little dazed by the earnest look in this man’s eyes. ”You say you’re…Rosalyn’s brother?
Quentin smiled and replied, ”No, I’m not her biological brother, but she saved my life in the past, so she’ll always be a sister to me.
”I didn’t manage to return from overseas because of some personal issues, and now that I finally had the chance to come home, I overheard the news that Rosalyn had ended up in a coma.
”Therefore, I decided to come to visit her before I returned to Merchant City.”
With that, he lifted his head to stare at Dr. Rachel with an earnest look. ”Can I go inside to see her?”
Dr. Rachel could not help pursing her lips when met with his sincere-looking gaze and tone. ” Unfortunately, I can’t get in touch with the Landry family so late at night, and I can’t possibly verify whether you’re really her family or not just based on a few words, so…”
She smiled at Quentin. ”I’m sorry, but I can’t allow you in there.”
She was just about to instruct her assistant to see this man out when Quentin stopped her. ”There’s a black mole on Rosalyn’s left shoulder and a birthmark on the back of her left arm.”
Quentin stared at Dr. Rachel with narrowed eyes and added, ”Surely only someone who’s close to her would know all this.”
”I’m sorry, but unfortunately, this can only prove that you were once very close to her and nothing more.”
With that, Dr. Rachel insisted on asking Quentin to leave.
Seeing how stubborn this woman was, a glimmer of malice flashed through Quentin’s eyes. However, a split second later, he suppressed the rage in him and said, ”If you feel the need to, you can perform a security check on me so that I won’t be taking any sharp objects into the room.
”I just need ten minutes. When I come out after ten minutes, you can go inside and check on Rosalyn. If there’s even so much as a scratch mark on her, you can always call the cops.
”We’re in Lincoln City now, not Merchant City, so if you were to call the cops on me, no one would be able to help me.”
As soon as she heard this, Dr. Rachel had no reason to refuse anymore. She let out a sigh and agreed to Quentin’s request.
She summoned her assistant and guards to check this man for any sharp, metal objects. As she did this, she furrowed her brows in confusion and asked, ”Why are you insisting on meeting her now, considering it’s been more than twenty years since you last saw her?”
