I Stole the Child of My War-Mad Husband - Chapter 7
The maid’s hand trembled subtly, perhaps because of the tense.
Still, contrary to my worries, the maid poured tea safely into my cup.
“Now, I’ll pour tea into the cup…”
The problem arose when she poured tea into Leah’s cup.
“Oh no! I’m sorry!”
The nervous maid dropped the teapot.
The teapot fell to the floor. At the same time, tea poured into Leah’s hand.
I was surprised and jumped up.
“Where did you get hurt-“
“Are you all right, Madam!?”
Other maids approached.
I was involuntarily angry at the time where the maid worried about me before Leah.
‘No matter how scary I am, in this situation, the child goes first!’
“I’m fine, everyone calm down!”
I screamed like that and hurriedly looked at Leah’s hand.
“Bring cold water quickly!”
However, the maids were also confused because they were surprised by the sudden situation.
It was an urgent situation, but I was getting angry about their sluggish behavior.
‘Why the grown-up adults don’t help!’
Eventually, I picked up the teapot that had fallen-fortunately, it didn’t break. I scooped water from the fountain right in front of me and brought it.
Returning hastily, I slowly poured water into the child’s hand and muttered.
“Oh my God, Leah, it must be hurting a lot…”
But Leah did not cry.
“Well, I’m fine…”
Do you think you’ll be hated at times like this?
My heart was struck by the little child’s efforts.
I kissed the child’s forehead and whispered quietly.
“Leah, it’s okay to cry if you get hurt.”
“Mom will never hate Leah for something like that.”
As soon as those words were over, tears began to drip from Leah’s eyes. My heart hurts as she began to cry.
Subsequently, the child began to cry slowly.
“Hmm, mom, uh ahh…”
“It’s okay, now everything will be okay…”
‘She is such a nice and lovely daughter.’
I patted a little child who tried to endure the pain of burns to be loved.
Fortunately, it wasn’t very hot tea water. The hand burn was not severe.
‘Still, it’s blistered.’
At that time, the doctor who heard the news was running to treat Leah.
Leah shrugged her shoulders when she saw the doctor as if she was scared of getting healed.
I kissed the frightened child’s cheek lightly.
“Leah, you have to be treated so that you don’t get sick, you don’t have to worry.”
“… yes, I’m not scared, mom.”
Oh my God, I’m afraid she’s too mature for a 5-year-old kid.
“Excuse me. Miss Leah.”
The doctor who looked young came quickly. Then he began to carefully examine Leah’s hand.
The doctor, who carefully looked at the burn area, muttered.
“Well, I guess I should pop the blisters.”
Leah frowned as if it was scary to imagine, and I inadvertently asked back at a different diagnosis than expected.
“That, that’s it…”
The doctor hesitated for a moment.
“Of course you have to.”
“No, I’m asking you to explain the exact reason.”
I couldn’t help it. I really don’t understand how to pop a blister at this point.
The doctor who works in the noble family is a considerable intellectual, so it was not unreasonable for him to think that way.
As a modern woman who is accustomed to social life, I pretended not to see it and kept the mask of a noble lady.
‘If I get mad here, my rumors will get worse again.’
Fortunately, the young doctor spoke like he was explaining his knowledge to a noble lady who didn’t know anything.
“Oh… Madam, this may hurt, but this is a natural thing. We need to pop the blisters so that the burns heal quickly.”
It’s a way to appease an ignorant noble wife.
But I wasn’t the original me. As memories of the past came back, I also recalled working in the hospital.
It means that I also have my own modern medical knowledge.
“You don’t need to pop these blisters, if you do something wrong, it will get infected.”
The treatment is slightly different depending on the degree of burns.
It was true that the blister healed quickly. However, the probability of infection increases as bacteria enter through the wound. So, it’s better not to burn more of Leah’s burns now.
“And if you leave it alone and heal it, it won’t have any more scars left.”
The doctor seemed disgruntled
“But, if that happens-“
“You are not an exclusive member of our family, aren’t you?”
As far as I know, the original doctor of the Ainel family was an older man.
But the doctor in front of me is a young man who is too young, who is he?
“Well, because my teacher has been away for a while…”
‘Oh, he was a disciple.’
If so, it is natural that you are still inexperienced. It was just clear that he followed the learned knowledge as closely as possible.
‘Besides, the medical knowledge here is a little different from where I was.’
To solve the situation smoothly… somehow I fell into trouble.
It was obvious that if I simply pushed myself, only bad rumors would thrive again.
“All right, then let’s do this. You leave the blister alone and watch the condition for a few days. Then pop it when the condition worsens.”
I smiled to look like a wise lady.
“Sometimes the theory you have learned may not be the answer.”
Perhaps because of the mood, the people around the young doctor also had a blank face.
‘What’s on my face?’
While contemplating, the young doctor seems to have decided not to be stubborn anymore.
He didn’t burst the blister and started to wrap up Leah’s wound.
“Oh, my lady, if you keep touching your hand like that, I can’t cover your wounds.”
However, Leah was scared and her hands continued to block the treatment that the young doctor was giving, and the young doctor didn’t seem very good at it either, so the bandages kept getting loose.
In the end, I had no choice but to come out.
“I’ll do it.”
The young doctor wasn’t familiar with how to deal with the child.
If he asked for a frightened 5-year-old to cooperate, it would be of no use.
“Come on, Leah. Look at mom.”
Then the child took her eyes off the wound and looked at me.
Leah’s eyes were pretty ruby lights. Her blonde resembles me, and her eyes resemble Rupert.
I started chatting while putting bandages on.
“Did you say you liked to draw pictures, Leah?”
“… I did.”
“Then what would Leah like to draw the most?”
“If you don’t remember anything, should mom give an example? Rabbit? Dog? Or a cat?”
“Oh, I like dogs.”
“Wow, mom really likes dogs too.”
I made eye contact with Leah and applied the bandage skillfully.
The young doctor who was watching my hand movement from the side exclaimed an admiration. There was also a whisper of the maids.
“Did our Madam have such a skill?”
“I think she’s better than the young doctor…”
Those words struck me inside.
Fortunately, it wasn’t a bad word this time.
I pretend I didn’t hear and finished my work.
Leah looked at her hand and opened her eyes.
I kissed the child’s cheek lightly. She’s so cute I can’t stand it.
“How is it?”
Leah laughed and nodded her head.
“It didn’t hurt at all! Mom is amazing!”
Well, she’s lovely too.
Touched by Leah’s cuteness, I kissed her cheek again and turned my head to the young doctor.
“From next time, when treating a child, do it this way.”
The eyes of the young doctor who had just ignored me in the past gleamed. He nodded quickly.
“Yes, yes, I will definitely keep it in mind.”
Subsequently, the young doctor added it seemed a little embarrassing.
“You’re much better than me who studied for 2 years. I’ll have to practice harder.”
Fortunately, the young doctor was a personality that admitted to his shortcomings.
‘That attitude is very good.’
Now that the treatment was over, it was time to deal with the last problem.
