Now that they had time to think about it, the old lady must have considered what was bound to happen.
She had spared a thought for her two grandchildren who weren’t officially part of the Yans.
Xuxu stood by the windows and stared at the clouds for some time. Then she heaved a heavy sigh. “Ah Sheng, what do you think can last for a lifetime?”
The man halted his movements, stood up and strode towards her. He embraced her from the back and placed his chin on her shoulders. He tilted his face and gazed at her with an expression of adoration. “My love for you.”
Xuxu smiled. “Maybe you will reconsider after I give birth. I might grow fat and have a bad temper.”
As she spoke, she tightly gripped his hands.
If Ah Sheng could love her for this entire lifetime, what else should she seek in such a lifetime?
“When the mountains collapse and the sky meets the ground, only then will the maiden leave the lord.”
Young Master Yan was being serious, but Madam Yan burst into laughter. She turned and gazed at the man who was still using his face to caress her neck. She lifted her eyebrows. “So, I’m the lord now?”
Yan Rusheng gritted his teeth. “Alright, you’ve gone astray indeed. Stop meeting that hooligan, Zhou Shuang.”
Poor Zhou Shuang! She was being blamed for no reason.
Then his hands traveled up to Xuxu’s bosom, and he pinched them hard. “I shall prove to you tonight I’m a real man!”
Xuxu hastily changed the topic. “I heard that you used a week to conquer the world?”
Yan Rusheng knew what she was referring to. He grinned. “Your husband is the king now, so you are the queen.”
“Stop boasting.” Xuxu frowned and nudged Yan Rusheng. “What would First Aunt think? Huh?”
She had just taken back her rightful shares and now he was buying up all the minor shareholders’ shares.
Wasn’t it an intentional display of going against her?
If it carried on, the crack in family ties would get bigger.
“Don’t mull about it anymore.” Yan Rusheng straightened his back and patted Xuxu’s back gently. “Let’s go out for dinner tonight.”
He knew that women are more emotional in such situations.
Xuxu asked, “Where are we going?”
She didn’t enjoy heading out for dinner, especially after she became pregnant.
Yan Rusheng replied, “Someone is giving a treat.”
Xuxu frowned and snorted. “Those roguish friends of yours?”
Needless to say, it must be Ming Ansheng and the rest. If not, he wouldn’t have thought of bringing her along.
“What you’ve said…” Yan Rusheng dragged the last syllable, and his eyes deviously twinkled. “When I see them later, I will convey your message.”
Xuxu clenched her fists and punched Yan Rusheng’s chest. “You’re so annoying!”
Yan Rusheng grabbed her wrist and teased her. “Wow! My wife, can you act coquettishly again?”
Xuxu blushed and flung his hand away before marching off.
They had moved back to the mansion, but Xuxu still stayed in a separate room from Yan Rusheng.
After she had left the study, she stroked her slightly bulging belly. She was feeling a little hungry.
She decided against going back to her room. She turned towards the staircase.
She had been steadily gaining weight recently, and her appetite was getting better.
“Hey, what are you doing? There are children, elders, and servants at home. You might not care but I do.”
