PA Wen looked at his phone and saw the caller’s name—Xiao Yaojing. Knowing that he might be digging his own grave if he picked up the phone, PA Wen quickly put his phone away.
Meanwhile, Ye Yuwei had left Gu Mansion and was standing at a junction trying to hail a taxi. Gu Juexi drove up and stopped his car beside Ye Yuwei. He told her to get in, but was ignored.
“You didn’t bring any cash or your phone, how are you going to get to the hospital?” asked Gu Juexi exasperatedly.
Ye Yuwei stopped walking and looked at Gu Juexi sitting in his car scornfully. “Quit the fake concern act, Mr. Gu.”
“Stop talking and get into the car,” said Gu Juexi impatiently, “The hospital might close if we go too late.”
Ye Yuwei was speechless for a moment, but got into the car. “We are on the same page for the first time; this child can’t exist.”
The car fell silent.
Gu Juexi gripped the steering wheel tightly and began driving, his face an emotionless mask. He drove very slowly, and Ye Yuwei had her hand on her stomach throughout.
A child shouldn’t come into this world if he is to be born without blessings. Moreover, she did not want her child to be as cold-blooded as the men of the Gu family.
They reached the hospital eventually despite Gu Juexi’s slow driving.
The weather was gloomy and thunder rumbled threateningly in the sky.
Ye Yuwei got out of the car. She looked up at the lightning, one hand on the car door and the other on her stomach. Gu Juexi slammed the car door shut and looked at Ye Yuwei who was staring at the sky.
“Let’s go,” said Gu Juexi miserably. As if worried one of them would change their minds, Gu Juexi went into the hospital without looking back.
Ye Yuwei closed the car door, took a deep breath, and followed Gu Juexi into the hospital.
None of them forced each other, none of them begged otherwise. There was no angry confrontation, no ruthless coercion.
Ye Yuwei underwent the check-up and waited for the results calmly while Gu Juexi followed emotionlessly.
It was as if the baby deserved to be removed just because he came into the lives of a couple in an unhappy marriage.
When the doctor asked for Ye Yuwei’s availability for the surgery, all Ye Yuwei said was, “As soon as possible.”
Gu Juexi stood behind Ye Yuwei, and his hands shook uncontrollably at her words.
The last time his hands had shaken like that was after the mission where most of his comrades in the army had been killed.
This was the second time: when he agreed to end the life of his own child.
The abortion was arranged at 3 in the afternoon. Ye Yuwei and Gu Juexi sat on the bench outside the operating theatre waiting, and for the first time, they sat together peacefully.
“He is almost 60 days old,” said Gu Juexi suddenly.
“It is just an embryo, the cell probably hasn’t even properly divided,” said Ye Yuwei emotionlessly, but her clenched hands showed just how nervous she really was.
Gu Juexi seemed distracted and was not really listening to Ye Yuwei. He knew that Grandma had crossed Ye Yuwei’s line the moment she brought Mom up.
She hated the Gu family.
She hated him, Gu Juexi.
And she was not doing it for his attention this time, she hated all of them for real.
Turns out this family is sick.
