Yan Rusheng turned solemn as well. “What’s the matter?”
Xuxu’s hands were tightly clenched on the bedsheets, and she knew that whatever that was supposed to come would come, eventually. She didn’t want to live her life worrying about it.
Even if Yan Rusheng really decided to go back to Fang Jiayin out of pity and because of this reason.
What else could she say?
At the thought of this, she said with determination, “Ah Sheng, Fang Jiayin and you might have had a child before. And because of this, Fang Jiayin… might not be able to conceive again.”
She felt that a huge burden was lifted off her shoulders once the words left her mouth.
The worst scenario that could happen was Yan Rusheng reconciling with Fang Jiayin. Then she would just pretend that nothing had happened before. For over 10 years, didn’t she pretend that nothing had happened as well?
Yan Rusheng couldn’t quite believe his ears. He widened his eyes and stared at her. “What did you say?”
Fang Jiayin likely had his child before?
“No, this is impossible,” he thought.
Yan Rusheng bent his back, and he gripped Xuxu’s shoulders tightly. He vehemently shook his head. “Xuxu. this is impossible. Don’t imagine things.”
He bent his head and kissed Xuxu lightly on her forehead as though he was trying to reassure her.
Xuxu lifted her head and gazed at him. “Nothing happened between you both?”
They were together for three years. Surely something must have happened between them?
“I…” It left Yan Rusheng dumbfounded. He was definitely at a loss. He had no idea how to explain about that one and only time that he had slept with Fang Jiayin.
“Ah Sheng,” Xuxu softly called out. She extended her hand to stroke his face with tenderness. Her mouth was curled with a gentle smile, and she said, “I’ve kept this matter in my heart for a long time. I knew that one day you would find out.”
She placed her hands back on her lap and looked at him dead serious in the eye. “I just want to know how you would react, and what you would do after you heard this.”
“It’s impossible.” Yan Rusheng still didn’t believe her. They have slept together only once, how could she be pregnant? He gazed at Xuxu in disbelief, and he raised another question. “How did you find out?”
Xuxu said, “I came to know it accidentally.”
She didn’t tell Yan Rusheng that she had heard it from Secretary Liu’s wife. But that wasn’t important.
Most importantly, she was sure that Fang Jiayin was pregnant before. She just didn’t know what had happened after that.
Yan Rusheng denied her claims once more. “Impossible.”
He couldn’t quite explain why he didn’t believe her or perhaps he couldn’t accept it. The fact that he had a child with Fang Jiayin.
Xuxu might not care about this matter, but he cared about her feelings.
As for Fang Jiayin…
He stretched his hands and wound them around her. “Xuxu.”
This hug conveyed his regret and love towards her.
So this was the reason for her recent change.
Wen Xuxu was so fearful of losing him.
Yan Rusheng quietly got off the bed when she was fast asleep. He stood by the bed and deeply gazed at Xuxu before leaving the bedroom.
He opened the study room and walked in without switching on the lights. The faint moonbeams shining through the window illuminated the study room. He walked to his desk.
He settled himself on his chair and took out his cigarette case. He put a cigarette in his mouth and lit it. The flame from the lighter provided some light before it extinguished in the next second.
He took a puff and exhaled the smoke. He dialed a number on the telephone. “Help me check the records at all clinics and hospitals in B City in the gynecological section. I want information on Fang Jiayin from three years ago. Don’t miss out any of the clinics or hospitals.”
