A Moment in Destiny

Chapter 594 You’re the Best

“Hudson, I’m fine. You don't need to worry!” Esther turned around and forced a bitter smile. She didn’t want him to see how hurt she felt, but the tears in her eyes gave her away. She didn’t expect the pain in her heart to be this great.

Hudson stood up and headed out. He still felt uneasy, so he stopped short at the door and said, “Esther, if you feel hungry, get up and have something to eat; I can ask someone to make you some chicken soup and beef stew!”

“Thanks!” The tears rolling around her eyes fell onto the pillow, “I’m not feeling hungry!”

Her body silently trembled and she cried. Hudson was even more worried now, so he walked over to her bedside. Esther didn’t have time to wipe away her tears yet.

He felt a stinging pain at the sight of her. He sat by the bed, as she buried her head into the pillow. He could tell there was something amiss about her, but he didn’t expect there to be a problem between her and Elijah. “Esther, did Elijah do something to you?”

“Hudson.” She raised her head and looked at him with blurry, tear-filled eyes. All the sadness came gushing out from within her. She let out a yelp and suddenly buried herself into his arms and began to cry aloud.

“Don’t worry, it’s fine.” Hudson held her, “I’m still here; I won’t let anyone who hurts you off the hook so easily! Tell me, what happened?”

Hudson let out a deep, long sigh. His cold expression was mixed with a hint of powerlessness, as he softly patted Esther’s trembling body. In his eyes, she was still like a child, and right now, she was like a huge child crying that hadn’t grown up yet. To him, she was and always would remain his beloved little sister!

As she bawled, she tightly held on to his body and uncontrollably released all the pain she bottled up inside her. After a short while, the sound of her crying became softer and infrequent.

“Esther?” Hudson confusedly called out to her, only to find out that she had fallen asleep. Her red eyes were the only trace left of her pain from a while ago.

Even though she was asleep, Esther still sniffled from time to time. He slightly shook his head, and laid her gently down to rest on the pillow, and kissed her on her forehead. “Good night!”

Although he didn’t know what happened between Esther and Elijah, Hudson felt incredibly aggrieved to see her like this.

He won’t tolerate anyone who had hurt his sister!

He covered a blanket over her and sat and watched over her silently. He knew she was his sister, but why did he harbor a feeling of romantic love for her?

It pained him to watch her cry as well; it was as though the air in the room was sucked away. He wanted to give Elijah a beating and to kiss Esther right now to help her feel better.

But alas, he suppressed these inclinations. He couldn’t have such feelings for his little sister, it was just not right.

In his heart, his love was already dead. He didn’t have a reason to live! Each day, he was like a walking corpse.

In the hospital’s ward.

Elijah’s face looked ill.
