As if Nora was in a dream, she was awakened by a burst of rapid cough. Her baby son, Hugh, coughed one after another. She didn't know her son had a fever. She was so tired these days that she didn't know.

Nora ran to Grace's bedroom and ask anxiously, "Is there a thermometer at home?" In a hurry, Grace stood up and said, "Let me look for it for you. It seems that there is one." Grace had been used to living alone, throwing things randomly. After searching for a long time, he finally found a thermometer in an inconspicuous drawer corner.

With a thermometer in her hand, she ran to her room, picked up her son and put the thermometer under Hugh's arm. Nora looked at her son with concern. Little Hugh's face was burning and her heart was beating fast.

In a hurry, Grace grabbed a hot towel and put it on little Hugh's forehead. Five minutes had passed. It seemed very long for them. In the dim light, she saw that her son had a fever, which was forty-one or two degree Celsius. What should she do? Nora was so anxious.

It was still early in the morning, and she felt her son's body burning hot. In a hurry, she only went to find Grace to get a thermometer, not caring about what time it was now? At this time, Nora looked up at the clock on the wall. It was just four o'clock.

Nora pulled Grace's hand and said, "Is there any medicine for children to bring down their fever?" Grace replied, "I'm an adult. How could I have children's antipyretics? "I was just too anxious. What should I do now? It's only four o'clock in the morning."

Since she didn't live a good life in Beijing, her rented house was far from the city and there was no hospital around. This worried her so much.

Suddenly, a person's name flashed through her mind, it was Murphy.

Only a woman would do such a thing when she was a mother. No matter what happened, as long as it was for the sake of the child, she would rather have a try, even if she would be refused. She didn't know where Murphy lived in Beijing, but now she only thought of him at that moment.

When the phone was connected, a very attractive voice came from the other end of the phone, he said lazily, "Who is it?" "I... I... I'm Nora," said she almost crying on the other end of the phone.

Murphy felt strange and said, "Why do you call me in the middle of the night?" "I really need you helo now. My son has a fever and has a very bad fever. I just came to Beijing and I only know you here. I don't know anyone else except you. So I'm calling you. I hope you can help me and save my son.

Unexpectedly, he agreed. "Send me your address. I'll be right there." It was about four o'clock in the morning, and there were few cars on the road. He drove the car to more than 100 miles. In fact, the place where Murphy lived was not very far away from her. It took her more than 40 minutes to get downstairs of her house.

Holding her son in her arms, she didn't want to put him down. Hearing the doorbell, Grace stood up and went out to open the door. At the first sight, he was still so arrogant and handsome, but when he saw him, he ignored Grace and went straight into the room.

When he saw Nora who was sitting on the edge of the bed with her hair disheveled, she held a child who seemed to be asleep sitting there blankly. She looked particularly helpless and pitiful. He didn't know why his heart ached again inexplicably. How could this feeling be so strong! At this moment, he couldn't help but think too much. He shouted angrily, "Go to the hospital now."

At this time, Nora finally came to her senses. Murphy grabbed the little Hugh in her arms and rushed downstairs. Then, he followed the car into the car and drove towards the hospital at the same speed as the wind.

With a sudden brake, they arrived at the hospital. After parking the car, he took little Hugh away from her arms and said while running, "Nora, go to find the doctor." They rushed into the hospital in a hurry. So there was no need for them to call the doctor. The nurse had already heard it. The beautiful nurse informed the doctor on duty with the fastest speed. Everything was ready. Little Hugh had an intravenous drip finally. The doctor said, "The baby is fine. Due to the weather, he probably ate something he shouldn't eat, so he has a fever. He will be fine after the infusion."

It was not until then that Nora had time to breathe. Seeing her son sleeping on the bed, she looked at him and quickly said, "Thank you for your help tonight. Thank you." Murphy replied coldly, "You're welcome. As long as the child is fine, you don't have to go to work tomorrow. Take care of the child and stay in the hospital for a few more days for observation."

Nora even had no time to speak. After opening the door of the hospital, Murphy left without looking back. It was almost six o'clock and it was almost dawn. "Honey, you are also tired. Go back and take a nap. You still have to find a job later." Nora said to Grace. "No, I'll stay with you today. Let's talk about work later," said Grace.

Looking at the sleeping Hugh, both of them felt sleepy. They had been exhausted after a long night. "Let's sleep on the bed in here," said Nora with a smile.

Everything was on the right track again. With a light make-up, Nora looked particularly elegant and noble. She knew the skills in the workplace. All the time, she only worked and didn't say a word, because she was a new comer. The world of martial arts was dangerous and unpredictable. She'd better be careful.

These days, Grace was in a very bad mood. She was a straightforward woman. She didn't like those jobs that relied on her own appearance, especially to sell her body, and climbed to a higher position. She would rather not have nothing to do at home. She searched for a job online and sent a lot of resumes. Those company didn't want give her chances because her low education and lack of working experience. What's more, the resumes she sent were all rejected by them.

When Nora returned home from work, she saw that Grace was listless. Curling up on the sofa, she asked, "Haven't you got any news about your work yet?" "As for me, I don't want to settle if I can't find my beloved job." Nora gave a thumbs up to her and joked, "You are the most courageous woman I've ever seen."
