Xuxu had just gotten out of the bathroom and was holding a glass of milk in her hand when she received a call from Zhou Shuang. She had a hunch regarding her sudden call.
She picked up her phone and answered, “Hello.”
“Xuxu, I’m dead!!”
As expected, she could hear Zhou Shuang’s anguished groans over the line.
It didn’t surprise Xuxu at all. She answered, “This can be solved. Just go to Lu Yinan.”
As someone who had gone through the same thing before, Xuxu had predicted all of her reactions.
Zhou Shuang shrieked at her in reply. “No! Why should I talk to him?! Being pregnant is my problem. It has nothing to do with him!”
Xuxu chortled in response. “Would you be able to get pregnant without him?”
What did she mean by it has nothing to do with Lu Yinan?
“What should I do?!” Zhou Shuang’s voice instantly reduced into a whisper.
Xuxu could imagine Zhou Shuang anxiously pacing back and forth in her house, and with this thought, she suppressed her laughter. “How would I know what is on your mind?” answered Xuxu. “Do you want to keep the baby?”
Zhou Shuang retorted, “I can’t even take care of myself, so how would I know how to take care of children?! I might need to depend on my parents for the rest of my life if I have a child.”
She paused and worriedly asked, “If my parents know about this, they will kill me!”
Xuxu fell silent for a while before giving her an answer. “Actually, there is nothing to hesitate regarding this matter.”
It was purely an accident that happened, and both Lu Yinan and Zhou Shuang had no feelings towards each other. If they don’t get married, the rational option was to… get an abortion…
But then again, it was a life they were dealing with. ‘How could they…?’
For someone who had experienced this before, Xuxu felt a mixture of pity and reluctance for this unborn child.
Xuxu continued on, “Why don’t you discuss this with Lu Yinan first? I feel that he has a right to know.”
Zhou Shuang bellowed at her from the other line. “Wen Xuxu, I’m giving you a serious warning. If you dare to tell that sissy Lu, I’m ending our friendship!”
Xuxu helplessly frowned. “Then what do you intend to do?”
Zhou Shuang briefly contemplated before she answered. “Go to the hospital with me tomorrow, alright?”
Xuxu readily agreed. “Okay, let’s do a checkup first.”
She ended the call and stared at the phone in a daze for quite some time. Then she finally decided to call Yan Rusheng.
They had set the completion ceremony date, but there was still plenty of preparation work going on.
It was almost 9 p.m. and there was at least half of the staff and workers still at the site.
Yan Rusheng was wearing a helmet as he carefully inspected everything.
Xin Yanting had tagged along as she assumed that he would only make a brief inspection. It had never crossed her mind that he would take so long and the venue was full of clutter and dirt. The heels she had worn had drained her energy since long ago.
Yan Rusheng didn’t seem to have any intention of going back anytime soon, so she continued to whine and grumble at a corner.
“Yan Rusheng, can we go now? There is nothing for you to do here.”
Yan Rusheng glanced askew at her and snarled, “You can leave first.”
He turned to walk towards two workers who were cutting a steel-reinforcing bar.
Xin Yanting angrily glared at his haughty-looking figure.
He was doing this on purpose to grind her patience. The minute she leaves, he would use it as an excuse to prevent her from tagging along the next time.
She gritted her teeth with determination and grudgingly trailed after him.
“President Yan, your phone is ringing,” spoke Qiao Jian as he pointed to Yan Rusheng’s pockets.
