When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 172

Although I was afraid of John, instinctively, I couldn’t bear to forsake him because we used to spend a lot of time together back in the day—he was a brother from another mother of mine in spite of the vicious things that he had done over the years.

Ashton’s body stiffened all of a sudden. He turned around and stared at me in disbelief. The initially wrathful man stopped and lost himself in the process of thought, with disappointment being written all over his face.

I stared at him and cast the baton that I had with me aside. As my vision blurred due to the torrents of grief that rushed out of my eyes, I got down on my knees and begged, “Stop it! He’s going to die for real!”

Ashton moved his lips in an attempt to say something, yet he seemed to be at a loss for words.

Mrs. Eriksen rushed out as soon as she heard the commotion. She shouted when she caught a glimpse of the horrifying scene. “Oh, God! What’s going on? What the hell is wrong with all of you?”

I ignored Ashton as I rushed over to John’s side.

His entire face was drenched in blood as he lay on the ground statically, behaving as though he had passed out.

“Hey! Are you okay? I’ll rush you to the hospital at once!” I tried to check on his leg because I recalled that Ashton had delivered a few kicks on his leg that had gone through a few surgical operations before.

The gravely injured man stopped me as he assured me with a bright grin, “It’s fine! Don’t worry! It doesn’t hurt at all!”

He shouldn’t have repeated the words of assurance that he used to tell me. I ended up wailing in front of him as tears gushed down my cheeks uncontrollably.

I tried to help him up, but I was abruptly dragged away by a powerful force. Ashton glared at me and warned me, “You should stay away from him because he’s fine!”

Although I could feel Ashton’s wrath, I couldn’t possibly leave John alone when he needed me by his side during such a crisis. As a matter of fact, he had to go through a few surgical operations to regain the capability to walk normally because of me.

Ashton didn’t bother to hold back against him at all. I was afraid that I wouldn’t get to stay away from John for the rest of my life if he were diagnosed with any kind of long-term sequelae as a result of Ashton’s brutality.

“Ashton, can’t you see that he’s hurt?” I tried to shrug him off because I was slightly infuriated. “Why have you beaten him up? If there’s anything that irritates you, why don’t you come at me instead? Is it necessary for you to take things out on him?”

“A-Argh…” John started coughing and he puked a few mouthfuls of blood a few seconds later.

I panicked and attempted to shrug Ashton off once more, but due to the difference between our strengths, I couldn’t get his hands off of mine at all.

Glaring at him in the eyes, I raised my voice and demanded, “Ashton, let go of me!”

He cast a stern gaze in return and insisted, “I want you to get inside at once!”

Since he showed no intention of setting me free, I leaned over and bit onto his arms while glaring at him to express my determination.

In spite of the racking sensation that I had brought upon him, he didn’t even budge as though it wasn’t a big deal at all.

As I was afraid that something bad would happen to John soon, I moved away from Ash ton and enunciated my warning, “If you refuse to move away from him, it’s time for you to forget about our child!”

I tried to smash my tummy with my hand once I warned him, but he managed to get ahead of me as he stopped me in the nick of time. He lugged me over and replied in a callous tone, “Scarlett, I can’t believe that you’re going to resort to such an extreme measure for his sake!”

The wrathful man couldn’t suppress his emotions any longer—he grasped my hands without holding back his strength.

“Ashton, please allow me to send him to the hospital!” At that point in time, there wasn’t anything that I could do about it anymore. I had to resort to something else and beg him to be merciful since he showed no signs of giving in to my threats.

As soon as he felt my tears on his hand, he loosened his grip. I tried to beg him to show us some mercy once more. “I’ll return once he’s in the hospital! I won’t go anywhere without your consent! I’ll allow you to do anything that you want with me! Please!”

The wrathful man chuckled. “Ha! Are you begging me because of some unworthy jerk? Scarlett, you never fail to surprise me!”

“Letty, you don’t have to beg him! I’m fine!” John struggled as he tried to bring himself up from the ground.

He staggered and fell to the ground. Judging from the wincing expression on his face, I was pretty sure that he must have been gravely injured.

I couldn’t stand to leave him alone anymore. When Ashton had his guard down, I shrugged him off and rushed over to John’s side. After I helped him up, I sniffled and offered, “I’ll rush you to the hospital at once.”

I lowered my gaze because I couldn’t bring myself to look at Ashton anymore. It was no easy task, yet I managed to bring John back to his car.

Mrs. Eriksen heaved a long sigh, telling me, “I’ll be waiting for you, okay?”

I nodded as I rushed over to the driver’s seat, departing as soon as I got the car started.

After John was rushed to the hospital, I took a seat on the bench in the corridor. I couldn’t be sure if I felt awful due to the chilling breeze or the feud that had occurred.

Things weren’t supposed to turn out as such, yet it seemed to have gotten to the point of no return.

I spent an hour outside of the operating theater, waiting for John. At long last, the nurse brought him out as they made their way to his ward.

Meanwhile, the doctor instructed me to deal with the paperwork to get him hospitalized. Hence, I stopped the doctor because no one told me how John’s conditions were. “Doctor, how is the patient? Is there going to be any long-term sequelae?”

The doctor smiled and assured me, “It’s not a big deal, but it’s going to take some time for his wounds to recover. With that being said, I was made aware that the patient’s leg had gone through surgical operations. I need to send the patient for a simple X-Ray examination to figure out his true condition.”

I nodded vigorously and expressed my gratitude before I headed over to the ward.

Since anesthesia had been administered, John lay on the bed as he was rendered incapable of movement. He seemed to be in a great mood as his lips curved upwards once I showed up in the ward. “Please have a seat and keep me company!”
