She had always assumed that she held a special place in his heart.
However, she had not known that he had already given this “special place” to another woman
Darkness tended to have the power to make one’s emotions more sensitive.
Reaching out, Nian Xiaomu wiped the tears away from the corners of her eyes and refused to allow her own imagination to run wild. As she hugged Xiao Liuliu in her arms, she fell into a deep sleep.
She briefly packed up and headed to the office the next day when she woke up.
The secretary walked up and inquired the moment she saw Nian Xiaomu, “Manager Nian, have you seen the daily schedule that I sent to your email yesterday?”
Nian Xiaomu was stunned, but walked into her office and opened up her email inbox almost immediately.
Indeed, there was an email in her inbox.
She had fallen asleep at a very early time yesterday while accompanying Xiao Liuliu and didn’t even know that Yu Yuehan had carried her back to the master bedroom afterward.
She totally had not noticed that there was a new email in her inbox.
She opened it up and realized that it was a notification for a health checkup that the company had arranged.
The Yu Corporation would arrange for all its employees to go for a regular health checkup every year.
Nian Xiaomu hadn’t been with the Yu Corporation for long and hence wasn’t aware that it was time for the employee health checkup.
The secretary stood beside her and reminded, “I’ve already sent a notice to the other employees. Will Manager Nian be heading to the hospital now? I’ll help you make an appointment immediately.”
Tan Bengbeng had always been the one who arranged Nian Xiaomu’s health checkups in the past.
This was the first time that she had the chance to participate in a health examination on a corporate basis.
“Yes.” The secretary quickly took her leave to make the arrangements.
Nian Xiaomu arrived at the hospital in less than an hour’s time.
Nian Xiaomu held a managerial position and was different from the other employees. Hence, the company had arranged preferential treatment for her.
She did not need to line up, and the categories for her health checkup were more comprehensive as well.
Nian Xiaomu did the blood test first as she had not had breakfast yet.
She then progressed through the other categories of the health examination according to the order listed.
“Sit down first.”
Nian Xiaomu had just completed the examination at the department of gynecology. When she returned to the doctor’s office, he pointed at the chair in front of her.
Nian Xiaomu sat down, but could not guess the meaning behind the doctor’s expression.
Anxious, she asked, “Are there any problems with my body?”
“Don’t worry, it’s just a routine inquiry.
It was an experienced specialist who was in charge of Nian Xiaomu’s health checkup.
He was around 50 years old and was wearing a pair of gold frame glasses; he first took a serious look at her health checkup report before making any inquiries.
He asked a few questions in a row, and Nian Xiaomu answered all of them truthfully.
She assumed that the checkup was complete when she saw that the doctor had paused in his questions and remained silent for a while. Just when she was about to stand up, the doctor lifted his head up and asked, “When did you give birth to your first child? Are you planning on having a second child within the next two years?”
Nian Xiaomu was in the middle of standing up when her body froze immediately.
Dumbfounded, she looked at the doctor.
What was this about a first child and second child? Why did she not understand anything?
“Don’t you know that you have given birth before?” When the doctor noticed that her reaction seemed peculiar, he adjusted the glasses on his nasal bridge and knitted his eyebrows.
It seemed like he was looking at a wicked girl from the way he stared at Nian Xiaomu.
Nian Xiaomu was sure that she had not misheard him and hurriedly explained, “I have not given birth before!”
“Nonsense! I have been in the gynecology department for several decades. How could I be mistaken about whether you have ever given birth? The scar from the cesarean section is still on your abdomen. Take a close look at it yourself.”
Nian Xiaomu: “!!”
When Nian Xiaomu heard what the doctor said, she reached out and lifted up her shirt with a dazed look. As she stared at the scar on her stomach, even her voice started to tremble.
“Wasn’t this scar left behind from the a burn wound?”
This was what Tan Bengbeng had told her all along
