Before the meeting, Olivia put on some makeup for a healthier complexion. Looking at the flurry of snow out there, she wrapped herself up in layers of clothes for warmth.

After chemo, her physical functions, which included her immune system, had deteriorated, and her body was as brittle as glass. She had to test her complete blood count for the ratio between her red and white blood cells every two days.

If the ratio dipped below average, she would need to take medicine to boost it. Otherwise, her life would be in danger if she caught any illness because of how she was immunocompromised.

She’d rather be safe than sorry and pick warmth over style. After touching the thinned hair at the back of her head, she carefully put on a black beanie.

Keith wasn’t keen about Olivia going out and protested, “Olivia, you’re not in a condition to leave home. You did the complete blood count test yesterday, and your ratio is below average. As your leading physician, I’m responsible for your health.”

Olivia pleaded with misty eyes, “Keith, no one wants to show up in front of an ex looking miserable. I just want to part ways with him when I still look decent.”

He recalled the furtive manner she hid the hair on her pillow and sighed. “Just stay warm.”

“I’m only finalizing the divorce. It’ll be quick.”

“I’ll drop you off.”

This time around, she did not turn down his help. She was too preoccupied with getting the divorce done as soon as possible.

Checking her messages in the car, she came across one from Everly, whose boyfriend flew home in an attempt to save the relationship and even made a scene at her workplace. Everly had no choice but to take a long leave to avoid his harassment.

That explained why she was nowhere to be seen for the past few days.
