When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 18

Chapter 18

“Since they’re not nice to you, let’s forget about them,” Ruby said furiously.

Gina smiled. She held Ruby’s hand.

Ruby continued, “If you don’t mind, we can be a family.” She touched Gina’s smooth cheek affectionately. “I always wanted to have a daughter…

Ruby was also pitiful. Her closest relatives had passed away. Gina never heard her talk about her son and husband and wouldn’t bring up such a sad topic.

Then you can be my mum from now on,” Gina spoke seriously.

Ruby was surprised and delighted. “Really?”

“Mum,” Gina called out.

Ruby covered her mouth joyfully. “Aye. She paused then continued. “By the way, I’ve something to discuss with you. This hospital must cost a fortune. Can you transfer me to somewhere cheaper? I’m better now, so staying here is unnecessary.”

This hospital had specialized medical attendants constantly available, offering various services like massage and walks. It was too costly for a student like Gina.

Gina shook her head. “Don’t worry about that.”

Ruby hesitated, trying to find the right words.

Gina spoke, “Mum, just speak your mind.”

“Gina, be honest. Where did you get the money for my medical bills?” Ruby was worried that Gina might go down the wrong path. It wouldn’t be worth it.

Cina calmly replied, “I worked part–time. I drew some designs for a jewelry company, and they sold well.”

Ruby had seen her drafts. Although she didn’t understand it, she thought it was excellent. “Don’t work too hard. And don’t spend it all on me. Save it for yourself.”

Gina smiled and didn’t speak.

After visiting Ruby, Gina went to the sixth floor to another VVIP ward and looked at the man on the bed through the window. He was her biological father, Phillip Miller.

Gina hadn’t planned on staying, but she sensed something wrong. Phillip’s face was gray.

Gina walked in and examined Phillip. He was suffocating.

Gina eyed the oxygen mask and yanked it off. There was a problem with the oxygen. Or, someone had tampered with it to kill Phillip.

Soon, Phillip started breathing, and his complexion improved. However, he remained in a coma.

Chapter 18

Suddenly, a cry came from the doorway. “Miss Miller, what are you doing?”

Lucas pointed at Gina with wide eyes. “Why did you remove Mr. Miller’s oxygen mask? Are you trying to kill him? This is outrageous!”

“If I don’t do it, he’ll die,” “Gina said coldly. “Get someone to replace the oxygen tank.”

Lucas was displeased. “Who do you think you are? You’re a nobody now. You don’t get to boss me around.”

Gina sneered. Lucas had never respected her. He always sided with Olivia to frame and harm her.

Ella appeared at the doorway. When she saw Gina, her face changed, and she scolded, “Why are you here? Have you come to beg us to take you back?” Ella seemed to forget Gina was the one who severed their relationship.

Lucas complained, “Madam, Miss Miller pulled off Mr. Miller’s oxygen mask.”

“You bitch. Ella’s eyes went wide. She ran to look at Phillip anxiously, ordering Lucas, “Hurry! Get the doctor now.”

“Yes, madam.” Lucas left.

When Gina was leaving. Ella shouted, “Stop. Are you trying to run off after trying to kill your father? Is it because you get a share of the assets? I’m going to call the police and throw you in jail. She blocked Ella’s way.

Dylan Thomas arrived. He glanced at Gina and greeted, “Miss Miller.

Gina acknowledged him.

Dylan grew sullen when he addressed Ella, “What happened?”

won’t

Ella grinted her teeth. “It’s outrageous, Dr. Thomas. This brat isn’t our daughter anymore. And she just pulled out her father’s oxygen mask. Since her father had a stroke, he needed a ventilator. She’s trying to kill him. What a bitch.”

Dylan frowned. There must be a reason she did that. Shouldn’t you find out what happened first?”

Ella didn’t understand why Dylan, a doctor who returned from overseas, would speak up for Gina. Ella glared at Gina. “Are you saying she’s being helpful?”

Dylan snorted. “Miss Miller is the one who visits Mr. Miller the most, and…”

Gina interrupted, “Stop.”

Dylan could only shut up. The Miller family didn’t appreciate what Gina had done for them. Gina had wasted her efforts.

Cina didn’t want to argue. “The oxygen tank isn’t pure.” They would have to verify what was mixed in.

Dylan had someone replace the oxygen tank, checked it, and put the oxygen mask back on Phillip.

The original oxygen tank was found to contain methane, a toxic gas that could cause suffocation: Dylan said coldly. “If not for Miss Miller, Mr. Miller would have died.”

Ella’s heart skipped a beat. She felt guilty momentarily.

Cina mocked, “Still want to call the police, Mrs. Miller?”
