Submitting To My Billionaire Ex-Wife by Allison Mild Chapter 136

Chapter 136

Genevieve felt like she had been unconscious for a long time, but there was someone by her side, speaking into her ear daily.

The gentle, soft voice drifted to her from somewhere distant, coaxing her to wake up quickly.

She felt as if she would forever be immersed in the dark, suffocating seabed.

The chilling seawater swept through every pore of her body, a fate worse than death.

A vague image was forming in her mind.

When she had fallen to the bottom of the sea, thrashing to no avail, a figure had quickly and decisively jumped down to her side.

Visibility was limited in the inky bottom of the sea, but she caught a glimpse of the faint light he brought as he snatched her from the hands of death.

She would always remember that moment.

But soon, she ran out of air. She lost consciousness.

Just then, she awoke to a warm room. It was furnished in the Anglandurian style with heavy, elegant

curtains.

She was alive.

Looking at Louis before her, something seemed to squeeze her heart. Her eyes stung with tears, and she was both touched and grateful.

Louis walked up to her, and the doctor knowingly made way.

She could see her pale features reflected in his warm, clear eyes.

“I’m glad you are awake, Gen,” Louis said.

He thought, “It was worth it to gamble with my life unhesitatingly.”

“Thank you,” Genevieve said. She looked at him with a smile.

She guessed it. Louis had saved her.

She had seen Louis on that dark seabed.

Louis hesitated, but he couldn’t/help it. He pulled her into his arms,

but his action upset her body, and she was wracked with violent coughs.

Genevieve teared up.

Louis‘ expression shifted. He gently eased her back and glared at the doctor.

He demanded, “What’s going on? Didn’t you say it wasn’t serious?”

The doctor paused but quickly explained, “Ms. Lawrence has a serious lung infection. She spent too much time on the seabed. Though early treatment controlled it, it couldn’t be completely cured because of her coma. Further observation is needed.”

Louis was still worried.

Genevieve bit back her cough.

She smiled, saying, “I’m alive; that’s all that matters. A little cough is nothing.”

Louis stressed, “You’ll be cured, Gen.”

Genevieve nodded.

After her consultation, the doctor left.

The room fell silent.

Louis looked at her gently and said, “Are you hungry? Shall I ask them to make you something light?”

Genevieve shook her head, asking, “Do my parents know?”

She didn’t see Darrell or Samantha; all the doctors here were foreigners.

So she knew that she wasn’t in Clusia.

She was worried that Darrell and Samantha wouldn’t be able to accept the news about her disappearance.

Louis handed her a quilt and said, “You were in a coma with an uncertain rate of survival, so I didn’t tell them. Shall we wait before surprising them?”

Genevieve thought for a moment, then nodded.

She’d been in a coma for several months and had lost a lot of weight. Her chin had become thin and pointed, and she appeared pale, weak, and vulnerable.

Louis‘ heart ached.

He said, “Don’t worry while recuperating here. You have a serious lung infection, and the medical facilities here are better than the ones at Clusia. The best lab technicians can run diagnoses on you whenever needed. But the wounds on your body…”

Louis‘ eyes

darkened.

He remembered he had been shocked by the trauma to her body when he had rescued her.

They looked like whip marks/to him, and there were stark, cruel scars on her back..

“Why did she suddenly disappear? Why was she beaten? Why was she hung outside the window?” Louis wondered.

Louis’s heart hardened, but he didn’t let the anger leak onto his features. He didn’t want to bring up any sorrowful memories.

Genevieve lowered her eyes slightly.

The scenes before she had fallen into the sea were still vivid in her memory.

How could she forget?

Johnson had been the one to whip her. After his torment, he heard Anthony’s voice and hastily tied her up to hang her outside the window.

Genevieve trembled slightly.

Her newly healed wounds started itching.

She smiled wryly and asked, “Do you know what happened next? Why did you suddenly jump down and save me?”

Just as Louis was about to speak, a servant knocked on the door.

He paused, standing up and walking over.

“Here’s some freshly cooked oatmeal, Mr. Fallon. The doctor advised Mrs. Fallon to eat something before she gets an upset stomach,” the servant said.

Louis swallowed and took it with a sound of agreement.

The servant didn’t enter, leaving after delivering the oatmeal.

Genevieve was surprised at the servant’s term of address. She looked over in confusion.

Louis walked over with the oatmeal, stirring it with a spoon. He murmured. “My family would be suspicious if they heard a woman was living here with me. I had no choice but to say it’s my wife I

married in Clusia.”

Genevieve touched her hair with an indescribable feeling.

She laughed. “It doesn’t matter. I took advantage of you!”

Louis raised his head. Their eyes met..

His eyes seemed to try and say something, but he knew it wasn’t the best time.

When the temperature of the oatmeal was just right, he handed it over.

He rasped, “I knew you were gone, so I kept looking for you. Then, when I saw Anthony’s ment sealing the sixth floor, I felt something was wrong. I went to the fifth floor, deciding to climb up from there. But as soon as I came to the window, I noticed you tumbling into the sea. At the time, I didn’t think much and jumped down. Fortunately, I was in time.”

Although his tone was light, Genevieve’s heart was weighed with thanks.

Chapter 136

He had risked his life by jumping down at that moment,

Their connection had begun with mutual interests, but they eventually became friends.

But Genevieve had always distanced herself from Louis.

She hadn’t expected Louis to jump into the sea for her.

She couldn’t pay back this favor.

She lowered her head slightly, baring her neck. Her expression was gently dazed.

Louis paused before continuing, “Later, I heard Anthony had sent out several rescue ships but called them back two days later. Last I heard, he was getting engaged to Andrea. However, Mr. Lawrence sent search and rescue teams to scour the sea for over three months. There are still people searching for you.”

Genevieve’s eyes suddenly turned red.

She didn’t know whether it was because of the news of Anthony’s engagement, or because Jeffrey was still looking for her.

But she knew that she had given up on Anthony.

How could she expect anything from him?

It was laughable. He spent a mere two days on a life–and–death matter for her.

But what happened to her was all because of him.

His younger sister and fiancée had teamed up and pushed her near death.

Genevieve’s eyes turned frigid.

She lowered her head, tasted the oatmeal, and set the spoon down.

She said, “I want to inform my brother of my safety first.”

Genevieve couldn’t turn a blind eye to her family’s worry.

Louis smiled and nodded. “Of course, but you should have dinner first. I’ll contact him!”

Genevieve nodded and resumed eating.

Louis left the room with his phone.
