Soon, eight female experts, departed from the Wade family’s private hospital for the Buckingham (Shangri-la) Palace Hotel in Eastcliff.
Stephen Thompson, together with Christine, also hurried from the Wade family.
At this moment, Helena was leaning on the soft head of the bed, her face full of weakness.
She hesitated with her mobile phone and sent a request for a video call to her mother, who was far away in Northern Europe.
There was a six-hour time difference between the Nordic countries and Eastcliff, and 1pm Eastcliff time was exactly seven o’clock in the morning Nordic time.
Knowing Helena’s mother, she must have woken up by now.
Soon, the video was connected and Helena’s mother was sitting alone at the dining table eating breakfast on the other end of the video.
She looked at Helena and couldn’t help but smile, “How are you feeling in China? Is there anything you don’t like about it?”
Helena wanted to say that she was not comfortable with everything in China, but for fear that her mother would be worried and distressed, she could only say with a forced smile, “There is nothing to get used to, everything is fine here.”
When she finished, she saw that her mother’s breakfast was just a glass of milk, a few slices of bread and a small piece of butter, so she said, “Mum, why are you eating bread in your room by yourself? Why don’t you go to the dining room to eat.”
All of the Nordic countries’ direct royal family lived inside the palace, where most people did not cook, and the royal family had their own dining room dedicated to the royal family.
Helena’s mother gave a bitter laugh and said, “A widow without a husband has to be looked upon with disdain everywhere here, I’d rather stay in my room by myself and try not to deal with them.”
With that, she couldn’t resist asking, “Helena, how is your body feeling?”
With a slight hesitation, Helena smiled slightly and said, “I’m quite well, you don’t have to worry about me.”
After saying that, Helena struggled for a moment, but still couldn’t hold back and spoke, “Right mum, I met Feb wade’s cousin today, he seemed to have seen that I wasn’t well at first glance.”
“Really?” Helena’s mother instantly tensed up and blurted out, “If the Wade family knew that you were seriously ill, they would definitely back out of the marriage, right?”
As she said that, her eyes were red and she couldn’t stop the tears from flowing down her face as she choked out, “Helena, mum really doesn’t want you to come back to this place, coming back here, they will only try to squeeze your value and your life by all means ……”
Helena hurriedly comforted, “Mom, don’t worry too much, that cousin of Feb wade’s, doesn’t deal too well with Feb wade or even the whole Wade family, so I guess he shouldn’t tell anyone else.”
Helena’s mother breathed a sigh of relief and said seriously, “That’s good …… Mum hopes you can live a good life in China, thousands of kilometres away from the royal family, and that you can be free from their control and live a little more freely.”
Helena couldn’t help but choke up a little too, nodding her head repeatedly, “Mom, you have to take care of yourself, don’t worry about me.”
“Good ……” Helena’s mother nodded, remembered something and added, “By the way, your grandmother’s health is not too good recently, so your uncle said that he and your sister will not be able to go to China to attend your and Feb wade’s engagement ceremony as he and your sister have to take care of them every inch of the way, and will send your grandmother’s butler Wilkin to represent the royal family at that time.”
Helena let out a bitter laugh and said, “I just promised them a marriage alliance with the Wade family one foot and they don’t even bother to come to the engagement party the next, that’s too snobbish ……”
