Quadruplets Unite: Mother's Words Are Law

Chapter 283

When Abel saw that Adrien was calling him, he answered the call right away. "Adrien!" "Abel, don't come to the hospital. The police are everywhere and they are investigating it," said Adrien weakly. "How are you, Adrien?" "I'm fine. I just told the police that I was a guest there. But you're different. You can't show your face here. " "Yes, I know. Thanks, Adrien. " Abel was planning to head to the hospital to extract the bullet from his shoulder. It seemed like that was no longer an option. After the call with Abel, Adrien then called Adam. "Adrien? Where are you? What's going on?" "Beat me to it, Adam. There was a gunfight. The police are arresting the suspects. Are you safe?" "The gunfight had nothing to do with me. It was the Palace Lord's doing. And I'm a lawful citizen," lied Adam. "Good. You should stay away from the Palace Lord. In case you are thrown under the bus," warned Adrien

Back in The Precipice. Abel's brain was busy coming up with a way to extract the bullet from his shoulder. Due to the drug, Emmeline could only lie against Abel's arm limply

. "How is Adrien doing?" asked Emmeline in a sultry voice. The vulnerability in her made her look extra seductive. For a moment, Abel lost his voice. "I'm asking you a question, Abel. " Abel's fingers brushed against Emmeline's cheek. "Do you care about him that much?" "I just don't want anyone to get hurt," answered Emmeline. "I'm injured too. But you didn't even bother to ask me if I'm doing okay. You brought up Adrien. You. " protested Abel. "So what do you want, Abel?" "Do you know what I was thinking and we were running for our lives back then?" Abel leaned down and nibbled on Emmeline's earlobe. "How am I supposed to know?" Emmeline dodged away. "I can't read your mind. " "I told myself that I won't allow you to leave my side again," spoke Abel softly. Emmeline felt conflicted. For the complicated past she had with Abel, could she ever live a happy life with Abel?
