Captivation Want Nothing But You, Chapter 345: Nothing To Feel Guilty About
Lukas was surprised to see Rachel.
“Miss Bennet, long time no see!”
He knew that she had come back and this was the first time they met.
Seeing Rachel unharmed and standing in front of him, Lukas felt surreal.
Although four years had passed and Rachel seemed to have changed, it somehow felt nothing had changed.
“Yes, it has been a long time.”
Rachel smiled as she moved a bit to let Lukas in.
Lukas was more or less aware of what had happened between Rachel and Victor after she came back.He was also aware that she hated Victor.
Thinking that Rachel would feel awkward, Lukas wanted to say that he would wait for the next elevator.
But then he looked down at the medicine in his bag and thought about Joey who waited in the ward.
After some initial hesitation, Lukas finally entered the elevator.
As the doors slowly slid shut, he looked at the man standing behind Rachel.
“Mr.Torres,” Lukas said as he nodded politely.
He immediately recognized Andy.
Although Lukas didn’t meet him quite often, he remembered that Andy was Rachel’s friend.
Also, in the past four years, Victor often stayed outside the Bennet family’s house, and that was how he met Andy.
Lukas had investigated Andy and found that he was a good lawyer.
Also, he was the only person Rachel’s mother had trusted enough.
“I didn’t expect that you would still remember me.” Andy smiled gently.
“You’re a well-known lawyer whose name is praiseworthy.How can I forget you?”
“Well, I’m flattered.”
Rachel listened to the conversation aimlessly as she leaned against the elevator wall.She looked down and suddenly noticed the bag in Lukas’ hand.She could clearly see through the clear plastic that it was medicine for a cold.
‘Lukas is not well? He has a cold?’ Rachel frowned slightly and looked at Lukas thoroughly.
She quickly squashed the thought that had popped into her head because he didn’t look sick.
Also, if Lukas was unwell and given his identity in the Sue Garden, he wouldn’t have to buy medicine for himself.
Then this medicine…Rachel pursed her lips as she tried to figure out who the medicine was when suddenly she was brought back to earth by a question Lukas had directed at her.
“Miss Bennet, why did you come to the hospital? Are you unwell?” Lukas’s voice was laced with concern.
“Excuse me, what?” Rachel asked in puzzlement as her mind was still trying to register the question.
“Oh, I didn’t mean anything else, Miss Bennet.Please don’t get me wrong.I just…”
Lukas tried to explain.He didn’t want Rachel to think that he was a nosy person.
Rachel felt a bit sad as she heard the cautiousness in his voice.When she lived in Sue Garden, Lukas was the only person who was good to her.
Why were they so uncomfortable now? She knew what Lukas was about to say, so she smiled gently and said, “I know you care about me.Don’t worry.I’m fine.I’m just come to see an acquaintance.”
“Oh, that’s good.”
Lukas breathed a sigh of relief.But then, he thought of something and paused.
‘An acquaintance? Who can it be? It’s been four years since she left Apliaria.Who else does she know? And that person is in admitted in this hospital now?’ Lukas knew he had no right to question Rachel, so he kept quiet.
The elevator stopped on the first floor, and the doors slowly slid open with a ding.
“Well, Miss Bennet, this is where I get off,” Lukas said and walked out of the elevator.
Rachel looked at his back and called out, “Lukas!”
He paused and turned around.
Rachel walked out of the elevator and looked at him.
“I know you have a lot of questions.You don’t have to be cautious with me.What happened between Victor and me has nothing to do with you.So you have nothing to feel guilty about.”
