My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 94
Once she finished her meal, she wiped her mouth clean with the napkin and walked out of the dining hall thereafter.
Lucas cast his utensils aside and went after Ashlyn immediately.
Similarly, Spencer went after Lucas the moment he left, grabbing another croissant on his way out of the dining hall.
A strong man in black stood in front of the Range Rover on the car porch. The moment he saw Ashlyn, he greeted, “Ms. Berry, I’ll be your driver for the day.”
“That won’t be necessary because I’ll be driving today.” Ashlyn took a peek at her watch and noticed she was slightly behind her schedule as she had woken up later than usual due to Lucas.
If she couldn’t make it to the hospital in time, her surgery would be delayed. Consequently, her agenda for the rest of the day would be delayed in a similar manner.
Lucas approached her in a domineering manner, offering, “I’ll give you a ride.”
“You should stop wasting my precious time!” Ashlyn replied callously, opening the door of the car as she was about to make her way into the driver’s seat.
Lucas frowned and stopped her, holding on to her arm with his gigantic palm once again, asking anxiously, “Are you sure you know how to drive?”
“Why does it sound like you’re shocked? Oh! I guess it makes sense that you do not know me that well since I’m merely your ex-wife.” Ashlyn’s gorgeous face glowed as the bright sun illuminated and highlighted her great features.
“Aren’t you in a hurry?” Lucas asked, pointing at top of the apartment. “I have my private helicopter with me. I’m pretty sure we’ll make it to your destination in time.”
Ashlyn narrowed her eyes in return, but the man was aware of what she had in mind since they had been husband and wife for the span of four years in the past.
“I’ll take that as a yes.” Lucas held on to Ashlyn’s wrist and brought her along with him, walking towards the apartment together.
Once they reached, they walked into the elevator and made their way to the highest floor.
They saw Lucas’ private helicopter the moment they walked out of the stairs leading to the highest floor.
Lucas piloted the helicopter from the apartment to the hospital.
Halfway through the journey to the hospital, Ashlyn received a call from the hospital’s director, asking, “Dr. Berry, where are you?”
“I’m five minutes away, Sir. I’ll definitely show up in the operating theater on time,” Ashlyn assured the hospital’s director in a serious tone.
The hospital’s director felt a sense of relief the moment he heard Ashlyn’s words.
Immediately, the director turned around, telling Mr. Chapman, “Sir, Dr. Berry will be here soon. She’s an extremely skilled surgeon. If it weren’t because I have requested…”
The director didn’t finish his sentence. Instead, halfway through his sentence, he shook his head, smiling.
Mr. Chapman asked in return, “Dr. Berry? Is she the youngest doctor of the hospital that everyone in town is talking about?”
“Yes!” The director replied, nodding.
“She’s quite young if I’m not mistaken? Are you sure she’s capable enough to carry out the surgery?” Hera’s mother didn’t have faith in doctors who were relatively young because she deemed them inexperienced.
“You have no idea what she’s capable of. I have always wanted to procure her service to carry out dad’s surgery, but dad told me it wouldn’t be necessary,” Hera’s father rebuked his wife’s statement.
As they were engaged in a conversation, a slender figure showed up in the ward.
“Dr. Berry,” The director greeted Ashlyn politely.
In return, Ashlyn nodded, smiling. She was dressed in a white robe, and her glistering pair of eyes were the only feature visible to others because she had a blue surgical mask on.
Ashlyn scanned the surroundings and stared at Mr. Chapman, asking, “Mr. Chapman, it’s currently five minutes away from nine. Five minutes later, we’ll commence the surgery. I’ll be your attending physician. Have you signed the necessary paperwork for the surgery to take place?”
Mr. Chapman looked at Ashlyn in disbelief because he was awestruck by her glistering pair of eyes.
He found Ashlyn’s pair of eyes familiar, but he couldn’t recall since when had he come across such a pair of eyes back in the day.
Ashlyn repeated her question because Mr. Chapman seemed to have lost himself in the process of thought.
Finally, Mr. Chapman returned to his senses, replying, “Yes. I have signed the required paperwork.”
“Great. Have the nurse brief you about the things to take note of during the surgery?” Ashlyn tucked her hands in the pockets of her robe, asking patiently.
“Yes,” Mr. Chapman replied, assuring Ashlyn.
“If that’s the case, we shall commence the surgery soon.” Once Ashlyn finished her sentence, a few nurses strode into the ward and brought Mr. Chapman out of the ward, heading over to the operating theater.
Ashlyn followed suit and headed out of the ward to prep herself.
Hera’s mother sized Ashlyn up, stating, “Am I the only one who thinks that the doctor is arrogant?”
She couldn’t help but feel unpleasant because others would behave courteously whenever they figured out their identity being part of the Chapman family, but not Ashlyn.
