Looking at his wife’s pitiful expression, which was similar to that of a drenched kitten, and how she kept tugging at his arm with that vulnerable gaze, there was no way Xie Limo’s heart wouldn’t melt.
He sighed helplessly. He had no way to deal with her. He was usually cold and aloof, but only she had the power to tear down his walls.
“Hey, please? I wasn’t thinking properly at that time. I used to picture how you would look like carrying our child, and I didn’t expect that image to overlap with this. That’s why I didn’t have enough time to react. I have no idea why I fainted…”
The more Yun Bixue explained herself, the more he felt like it was his fault. He immediately lowered his head and pressed his lips against hers. His kiss was gentle as a drizzle and as cool as a spring breeze. Yun Bixue could only hold on to his sleeve, accepting the tender and gentle adoration he was showering her.
After the kiss, Xie Limo sighed lightly. “My wife is so silly. I’m trying to learn how to carry a child, so I can properly carry ours in the future. Don’t you like that?”
On the topic of children, Yun Bixue looked down at her tummy and asked, “Do you prefer sons or daughters?”
“Either gender is great. As long as it’s your child, I’ll love them.”
“Don’t lie. I’m sure you have your preferences. Tell me quickly.” Yun Bixue tugged at Xie Limo’s hand and looked at him, persistently asking for his answer through her gaze.
A mysterious glint flashed across Xie Limo’s magnificent eyes, and he leaned his forehead against hers. Their noses were touching each other as he gazed deeply at her. “While carrying Su Lenghan’s daughter, I naturally imagined a daughter. It was then when I realized that our daughter would be a tiny version of you. At that time, I thought that if that was my daughter, I want to provide the best things for her. I would even pluck the moon and stars down for her.”
Yun Bixue’s lips curled up into a smile, “I knew it. You do prefer a daughter. I’d like a daughter too, but I want a son as well so he can protect his sister.”
Xie Limo embraced Yun Bixue as he spoke gently. “You want two children?” To his knowledge, many ladies from noble families didn’t like giving birth to more than one since it would cause them to go out of shape.
“Of course I do. Their liveliness will make our home warm. I’d like to have many children so siblings can take care of each other.”
Xie Limo nodded his head. “Just like you and Bilu.”
Yun Bixue sighed. “Yes. They should take good care of each other, just like Bilu and me. However, we suffered too much back then. I hope that our children would have a happy childhood.”
Xie Limo caressed Yun Bixue’s head and promised inwardly, “I’ll definitely give you a child when all of these are over. ”
It was too dangerous now, that was why he didn’t dare to take the risk. Even when it was only his wife, he’d already let her face too many dangers. If she were pregnant, he didn’t dare to imagine how terrorists would act. He just couldn’t afford the risk.
Yun Bixue was not aware of Xie Limo’s inner turmoil as she pictured a blissful scenario in her head.
As if thinking of something, Yun Bixue asked in excitement, “You looked very comfortable carrying the child. Tell me, have you carried one before? You looked like you’ve learned it from somewhere.”
Xie Limo scratched his nose in embarrassment, and a light glint flashed across his eyes. “Nope. At first, I don’t know how to do it, but Su Lenghan taught me. He was good at it. If the Su Family Organization were to be gone, he could become an infant consultant.”
At the mention of Su Lenghan, Yun Bixue sighed. “I actually pity that child. I just hope that she won’t grow up to be like Meng Xinyan.”
