lt;pgt;Melanie thought she needed to wait for the doctor to arrange a time for her surgery. However, the
doctor prescribed her some medicine instead.
lt;pgt;She was puzzled as she held the prescription list. “Didn‘t you say that medicine isn‘t suitable? Why‘d
you still prescribe me medicine?”
lt;pgt;“You have some inflammation, and this is the medicine for it. It needs to be treated before the surgery.”
After a brief pause, the doctor advised her, “You must avoid s*x for some time. Your condition is bad. If
this continues, it will affect your uterus.”
lt;pgt;The doctor kept reminding her of what she needed to be inindful of, but she stopped paying attention.
She knew her body was not in good condition, but she had not expected it to be this bad. She felt

lt;pgt;The bedroom door opened, and Nathaniel walked in. He approached the bed and sat down beside her.
Melanie noticed him tugging the blanket to cover her better, even with hier eyes closed. She could also
hear him sigh softly.
lt;pgt;“Mel, Mel...” He softly called her name twice but was hesitant to continue.
lt;pgt;She pretended she did not hear it and kept ignoring him, but he continued, anyway, “Mel, are you
asleep?” His voice was soft but persistent. It seemed like he would continue until he woke her up.
Melanie had no choice but to pretend to be woken up. She rubbed her eyes and yawned,” You‘re
lt;pgt;Nathaniel leaned down to hug and kiss her cheek, “Did I disturb your sleep? Thank you for your hard
lt;pgt;“I‘m fine. I‘ve been asleep for quite some time.” Melanie shook her head and opened her eyes. She
noticed Nathaniel looked tired and irritable, “What‘s the matter? You look unhappy.”
lt;pgt;Nathaniel forced a smile and asked, “About your perfume formula, do you think you need to adjust it,
lt;pgt;He asked in a careful tone as he feared she would be unhappy. However, he needed to ask the
