Both of them would take a stroll after dinner together.
At that moment, Yan Rusheng was sitting beside her. He was peeling the skin off a grape and even removed the seeds for Xuxu, before feeding her.
Xuxu was using her phone and began to tease him as she shook her head. “So you rejected many pretty young girls. Don’t you have any regrets?”
She spun around to look at Yan Rusheng.
“… No matter how pretty they are, none of them can be compared to you.” Yan Rusheng answered as he popped a peeled grape inside Xuxu’s mouth.
Xuxu raised her hand and pointed her phone at Yan Rusheng’s mouth. “Third Young Master, can you share how you felt being surrounded by young girls?” teased Xuxu.
It dumbfounded Yan Rusheng.
Xuxu began to fret as she retracted her hand. “You shouldn’t have fetched Yueyue today. How can Yueyue lead the life of a normal student in the future?”
Yan Rusheng airily replied, “This is great actually. Since she was the one who wanted to move out.”
Xuxu felt that he was right and it eased her worries.
But a moment later, she began to sigh. “I heard from the weather forecast that it will be scorching hot these few days. Military training will be very tough.”
“Don’t dismiss her as a fragile girl. She is much tougher than you,” Yan Rusheng said with a frown.
His gaze landed on Xuxu’s belly. “These two little things need to come out soon. I’ve suffered enough,” lamented Yan Rusheng.
“We are not continuing this topic.” Xuxu stood up in a huff.
She had bewildered Yan Rusheng. “What’s wrong again?”
Xuxu climbed into bed and covered herself entirely with the blanket.
Yan Rusheng hurried to her and pulled the blanket away. “Darling, why are you angry with me?”
Xuxu peered at the man with contempt. “Every conversation we have will eventually lead to that matter.”
So this was the reason… It amused Yan Rusheng, but he feigned ignorance. “What matter am I thinking of?”
Never tease a pregnant woman. The bigger their bellies get, the more short-tempered they become.
He knew that it was because she was lugging a huge burden, and this pressure was something a man could never understand. And that’s why she was feeling so emotional.
Xuxu coldly replied, “You know what I’m talking about.”
She slumped back once more.
Yan Rusheng maintained his facade. “I really have no idea.”
“Don’t bother me.” Xuxu grabbed the blanket and tried to cover her head.
Yan Rusheng didn’t let her have her way. He pulled the blanket over him and gripped her hand tightly. “All right. I promise that from now on until you’ve given birth, I shall not mention that matter again. Okay?”
Xuxu’s eyes remained shut.
Recently, she seemed to loathe being intimate and Yan Rusheng had sensed it. Hence, he didn’t initiate anything as well.
He held on to her hand and didn’t move at all.
This continued for a minute… two minutes… three minutes…
Yan Rusheng was dozing off.
Suddenly, the woman in his arms wound her arms around him. She pressed her huge belly against him. “I feel so terrible.”
“Why are you crying?” anxiously asked Yan Rusheng. He slightly pushed her away and peered at her. “How is it terrible? Tell me about it.”
Her eyes were red and welling up with tears. He wiped away her tears tenderly.
“I have no idea.” Xuxu shook her head as she sniffed. She was crying as though she was heartbroken.
Yan Rusheng was speechless.
The mood of a pregnant woman was just as unpredictable as the weather.
She was fine a minute ago and suddenly she was sobbing badly.
He was at a loss and could only pat her gently to coax her. “Stop crying. Tell me if you have any worries. Or you can use me as a punching bag.”
