Chapter 1 Introductions!
Lis Bailey has always been a very happy and dreamy girl. After her parents' divorce, she suffered from her mother's illness, who fell into a deep depression after the separation. Years later, she passed away, leaving Lis under the guardianship of her older sister, Luísa Bailey, who was only 18 at the time. Despite being just 15 years old, Lis always did her best to help her sister maintain the household. With her uncommon beauty, standing at 1.76 meters tall and weighing 59 kilograms, her curves were accentuated. Her fair skin and small yet striking eyes gave her a girlish appearance, and her broad smile enchanted anyone.
Her light-brown hair, slightly wavy down to her waist, gave her a youthful look. Her mother had provided them with ample support, but both sisters didn't want to rely solely on her inheritance. Lis pursued a medical degree because her dream was to help people. She graduated with honors at the age of 24 and went on to do her medical residency at one of the best hospitals in Manhattan, New York.
Luísa Bailey, having learned to fend for herself at a very young age, became a perceptive, highly intelligent, wise, talented, and intuitive person. Always quick with her reasoning, she never let anything go unnoticed. Luísa was always creative, fun, and sharp, in addition to being incredibly beautiful. She had a more mature appearance, with her light brown, slightly wavy hair reaching her shoulders. Her skin was fair but tanned from spending time in the sun. She resembled her sister a lot but unintentionally sought more attention than Lis. She had somewhat become Lis's mother figure, always caring and affectionate towards her sister. Luísa was the perfect woman: an excellent homemaker, a great wife, a great mother. Everything she did turned out very well, including her work as a real estate broker.
“Lis, I'm heading to work now!” Lis shouted as she hurried down the stairs.
“Not so fast, young lady. Come and have your breakfast,” Luísa said, stretching so Lis could enter her field of view.
“I can't, Lu. I'll be late!” Lis protested, entering the kitchen.
“I don't want to hear it. If you didn't want to be late, you should have come down earlier.”
“Oh, Luísa. Do you think it's okay for me to be late on the first day?” Lis tried to argue.
“You won't be late if you just have a little something to eat. Besides, Liam can give you a ride to the hospital. Right, love?” Luísa asked Lian, who was entering the kitchen.
“Yeah, I can,” he said, grabbing the coffee pot from the table.
Lian was Luísa's first boyfriend. Since high school, he had been in love with her and at the end of high school, he mustered the courage to ask her out. Since then, the two have been building a very strong relationship over the years. Lian had always been the subject of admiration from women due to his looks and his well-defined body, a result of the sports he played. His deep blue eyes gave him irresistible charm. Standing at about 1.88 meters tall, he drew attention wherever he went, but he never paid any attention to other women because he was always crazy about Luísa.
When she graduated in law, he decided to propose to her, and since then, they formed a beautiful family. Lian's law firm had grown significantly over the years, thanks to the great success he achieved in his cases. As time passed, Lis became an exceptional doctor, dedicating herself more and more to saving lives and relieving the suffering of the patients she cared for. Despite her busy schedule, she always found time for her family and made sure to be present at the most important moments. Luísa, on the other hand, was a successful real estate broker, always finding the best opportunities for her clients. She was highly respected in the market and admired for her negotiating skills and her talent for dealing with people.
When Lis rushed down the stairs, Luísa scolded her, but deep down, she was happy to have her sister right by her side. She knew that Lis was a very special person, who had always dedicated herself to helping others and, despite life's challenges, never lost her joy and optimism.
Lian, Luísa's boyfriend, was any woman's dream man. He was handsome, intelligent, and successful, and above all, he loved Luísa with all his heart. Together, they formed an enviable couple, marked by mutual respect, complicity, and love.
As they chatted in the kitchen, Lis's nieces and nephews came running in, excited and noisy. They were the joy of the house, and despite the daily hustle and bustle, Luísa always made sure to be present in their lives, taking care of them with love and affection. It was a close-knit family that faced life's challenges together and celebrated every achievement with great joy and gratitude.
“Auntie, Leon said he was going to get me. Ask him to stop!” Belinda shouted at the top of her lungs.
Lis hurried and grabbed Leon around the waist, sitting him on her lap and tickling his belly.
“What did Auntie tell you? Being the oldest, you should take care of your little sister and not scare her,” Lis said firmly.
Leon was Luísa's firstborn, at five years old. Little Belinda was only three years old. Both of them were very spoiled by Lis, who had always been crazy about children and dreamed of having at least four of her own when she got married. For now, she filled her life with her beloved nieces and nephews.
“Come on, you two, sit here for breakfast. It's almost time for school,” Luísa said, putting them both at the table and giving each a bowl of cereal with milk. Belinda kicked her legs while eating.
“Let's go, Lis. I'll drop you off at the hospital, and I'll go straight to the office,” Lian said.
“I don't want to bother you. You can go. I'll manage,” she said, putting a piece of toast in her mouth.
“Don't even think you're bothering. Come with me. It's decided. I'll take you,” he said, picking up his briefcase.
Lis finished her toast and headed to the car. She got in and waited for Lian, who, as usual, said goodbye to his beloved with a passionate kiss.
“Wow! I'm getting nauseous. Can you two stop, or I'm going to throw up!” Lis made a disgusted face.
“Oh, come on! When you find your love, it will be the same way,” Luísa smiled.
Chapter 2 The First Meeting.
Lian got in the car and, through the window, gave Luísa another quick peck. He drove in silence for a while. Lis had her head against the car window, looking outside, lost in her thoughts. Lian glanced over at her and then refocused on the road but decided to break the silence.
“Hey! Are you excited about your first patient?” The silence continued, and Lian looked to see why. He saw Lis still gazing at the horizon.
“Heyyy! Lis speaking!” He speaks in a louder tone.
Lis startles and redirects her attention to Lian.
“What's up? Sorry, I didn't hear you!” She speaks with a slightly squeaky voice.
“I'm sorry, didn't mean to startle you. I just asked if you were excited for your first appointment.”
“Oh, yes, I am. I'm just a little scared of messing something up. These are lives. I can't afford to make any mistakes.”
“I'm sure you'll do great. It's no wonder you're Luísa's sister!” He says, a
