Mu Li suddenly turned back and shot him this question. He blankly stared at her, bewildered.
“It’s already 9:00 a.m.” Mu Li pointed to her watch.
Yan Rusheng was speechless…
He gave them a passive look as he pressed the elevator button to close the door. He thought to himself, “Is she even my biological mother?”
A big bowl of porridge, a set of weird tasting sandwiches, and a tomato—Xuxu ate them all up.
Of course, she slumped beside the toilet bowl again and threw up everything she ate.
After she had puked, she opened up the snacks. There were cakes and fruits, all of which were imported food.
She thought, in the past, he used to separately send different food items at different timings. But perhaps he needed to go to work. Hence, he sent everything at the same time.
Xuxu had just peeled an orange and taken two bites of it when the doorbell rang. She puzzledly furrowed her eyebrows.
Did Zhou Shuang mention she was coming over?
Could it be her grandfather at the door?
Xuxu walked towards the door as she tried to hazard a guess. She peeped through the door hole and opened it without further delay.
“Aunt Mu Li and Second Uncle, why are you here so early in the morning?”
She took out slippers for them to change as she asked.
Mu Li said, “We are flying to Country Y tonight and we’re worried about you. So, we bought you some tonic.”
She bent down and placed the stuff on the floor.
“This time, I’ll be away for two months. When I’m back, I don’t intend to leave again.” Mu Li looked at Xuxu with a concerned look. “Third Yan is staying next door. You can choose not to forgive him, but if there are any emergencies, you have to call him, do you understand?”
Xuxu smiled and said, “You don’t have to worry about me. I’ll be fine.”
What did she mean she could choose not to forgive him, but to call him if there were any emergencies?
Xuxu couldn’t help but glance at the snacks and thermos jar on her dining table. She turned back and looked at Mu Li again.
She was indeed a well-hidden old sly!
“Hey, you are carrying my grandchildren, so how can I not worry for you?” Mu Li looked down at Xuxu’s tummy and lightly patted it. She was laughing so hard that she could hardly close her mouth as if she could visualize her grandchildren calling her ‘grandmother’.
Yan Weihong, who was standing beside her, shot her a look of contempt.
He chided her for being so realistic and appearing even more obvious than him.
“Have you taken your breakfast?” Mu Li raised her head and asked Xuxu.
Xuxu nodded her head. “Just eaten.”
Mu Li sighed again. “I’m really worried for you now that I’m going away.”
Her words carried a hint of foreshadowing and Xuxu knitted her eyebrows. “It’s really alright. I’ll be fine. I’m no longer a child and moreover, my grandfather is just staying nearby.”
Mu Li continued to wear a worried frown on her face. “The next prenatal checkup is in a month’s time, and there’ll be no one to accompany you for the checkup.”
Xuxu calmly replied, “I know the way to the hospital.”
As a grandfather-to-be, Yan Weihong is just as worried as Mu Li.
He thought for a moment and said, “Xuxu, let me arrange a chauffeur for you, and I’ll rent an apartment for him in this area. Whenever you need to go out, you can call him.”
Xuxu placed her hand on her forehead and replied, “There’s no need to. I’m really not as delicate and frail as you think. My grandfather is just nearby and if there’s a need to, I can always call him.”
They were really exaggerating the situation.
Mu Li and Yan Weihong heard this, both of them spoke in unison. “Then you’ve got to be careful.”
Before they left, Mu Li repeatedly instructed Xuxu to look for Yan Rusheng if anything happened. She even said the same words ‘you can choose not to forgive him.’
