Spring passed by quickly and as the days went by Xu Xinyi’s belly slowly grew bigger and bigger. For this period of time she paused all of her activities and announcements inside the entertainment circle.
In fact, even from the early days of her pregnancy, she had already suspended almost all of her work and stopped appearing in public. Back then it had been precisely this narrow window of inactivity that caused many of her fans to smell something unusual, especially considering the near-simultaneous announcement of her marriage. Gradually more and more comments speculating that she may be pregnant appeared and were liked under both her and Yi Yang’s Weibo.
“According to my observations, it’s been five months since Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang officially announced their relationship and, in these five months, Xu Xinyi hasn’t appeared in any of the magazines or programs that she usually has a good relationship with, plus, Xu Xinyi has not taken part in any movies or TV dramas after her work on Director Xu’s film ‘Witness’.”
“I’m breaking the news now. She really is pregnant, I know because she went in for a prenatal care check-up at the hospital where my friend works. My friend told me that Yi Yang personally accompanied her for the whole process and my friend even took photos. If you don’t believe it, you can follow this link to see the photos yourself.”
This Weibo containing the leaked photos soon went viral.
Many fans clicked on the link, which took them to a certain blog where the first post was clearly from someone who had secretly taken a picture of Xu Xinyi while she was going in for a prenatal visit.
In the wide corridor of a private hospital, there were a total of six or seven security personnel surrounding two people, Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang. In the first photo, Yi Yang was holding Xu Xinyi in his arms, his face was calm and serious, with a kind of chilly indifference that would make strangers hesitate to approach. Then, in the next photo, even though Xu Xinyi was wearing loose clothes, you could clearly see her vaguely arched belly.
Finally, in a third photo, Xu Xinyi was looking up and seemed to be saying something to Yi Yang. At the same time, Yi Yang had lowered his head to listen to her. His profile as he leaned down to listen to Xu Xinyi in the third photo was warm and gentle, which was a sharp contrast to the icy indifference he had been showing in the first photo.
Because of these leaked photos, fans gradually saw the three prenatal exam photos and the topic: #Xu Xinyi’s pregnancy# shot up the hot search.
“Ahhhhhhhhhh, she’s really pregnant! So shocking!!!”
“I guessed it back when they made their relationship public and, sure enough, she was pregnant! Looking at Xu Xinyi’s belly, she’ll probably have a little steamed bun before the end of the year!”
“Even while her career was on the rise, she suddenly married into a wealthy family and even had a child. Plus her husband is handsome and rich! What kind of winner in life is this? She had my admiration! QAQ.”
“It’s a good thing that everyone dies in the end, otherwise my heart would be really out of balance. Just look at her. She had so many people protecting her just for a prenatal care exam… when I think of the hustle and bustle and all the people squeezing with me inside the elevators during my own prenatal exam, it really creates a sour feeling.”
“Xu Xinyi, how did you capture Boss Yi? Are you considering publishing a book? I’ll buy it!”
“So Xu Xinyi has secured her place in the palace, huh? Married into a wealthy family and immediately had a son, it seems her position should be very stable.”
“Haven’t people said that Xu Xinyi came from a good family herself? This isn’t really a case of a normal person marrying into a wealthy family, is it? A fallen rich family can still be regarded as a rich family. At most, this should be called an arranged marriage between two rich families.”
With regard to the news of her pregnancy, Xu Xinyi felt that there was nothing for her to hide. The only reason she hadn’t gone out of her way to make it public because it was her own private matter, so she thought that there was no need to make a special announcement about it. In her mind, it wouldn’t be too late to make the announcement after the birth of the baby.
And in the blink of an eye, the leaves outside withered and turned yellow, until the yard of the Yi estate had a golden carpet of fallen leaves.
Xu Xinyi stopped the staff from raking the yard because she enjoyed strolling around the yard with her full belly. She felt at peace as she walked through the layers of yellow leaves that would crackle with each step, sometimes she would walk until the afterglow of the sunset was sinking below the horizon, and sometimes Yi Yang, when he could make it home, would come out to accompany her to walk quietly around the yard.
On the day of the birth, Xu Xinyi actually felt something was off and was in a bit of panic. That day, she felt like something was going to happen from the moment she woke up, but it wasn’t until the middle of the night that her stomach began to ache and throb. She had hastily woken up Yi Yang next to her, she had been a mess of nerves and anxiety, completely unable to speak, she could only point at her stomach with no idea what to do.
Compared with Xu Xinyi’s panic, Yi Yang was very calm. He briefly re-assured her before standing up to make a phone call. The two soon set off and, after arriving at the hospital, Xu Xinyi did not have to wait at all. She was sent straight to the delivery room to give birth. The birth was relatively quick and Xu Xinyi hardly suffered at all.
It was a little boy, seven and a half pounds.
Just after being born, the wrinkly little monkey quickly feel deep asleep and a nurse carried him out into the corridor.
“Mr. Yi, Mrs. Yi gave birth smoothly. It’s a boy.”
The nurse approached Yi Yang while holding the baby in her arms.
The new father, Yi Yang, looked down at the baby in his swaddling clothes, then stiffly reached out and took the him from the nurse, where he held the little guy in his arms with an awkward posture.
Strangely the child, who had been sleeping peacefully, suddenly began to cry loudly the moment Yi Yang held him. His small body released huge cries that reverberated across the whole floor of the hospital that they were on.
From the side, Old Master Yi laughed at his grandson. “It seems that from now on, there will be a lot of trouble between you and your son.” He chuckled.
After giving birth, Xu Xinyi had drifted into a dreamless sleep, when she woke up Tthe first thing she saw was Yi Yang, who was vigilantly guarding by her bedside.
“Where is my child?” She murmured.
“He’s here.” Mrs. Yi said from the side. She smiled and held the baby up slightly. “I knew when you woke up you would want to see him, so I especially didn’t let the nurse take him out yet. Take a quick look, it’s a boy.”
Xu Xinyi looked longingly at the child in Mrs. Yi’s arms. She wanted to sit up and have a look so Yi Yang helped prop her up so she could see.
The newborn was all red and wrinkly, like a little old man.
Xu Xinyi almost cried when she saw him.
“He’s not ugly, new-born children are all like this. Don’t worry, he will look good when he’s a little older,” Mrs. Yi said with a smile. Then, in order to dispel Xu Xinyi’s doubts, she added. “Even Yi Yang looked like this when he was born.”
Xu Xinyi sighed in relief.
Old Master Yi smiled and said that would have to give the child a name with the word ‘Qian’* in it to show his character but, every time the Old Master looked at his great-grandson, he couldn’t hide the love and doting in his eyes.
Soon, the extra people in the ward left one after another.
Yi Yang stayed by her bed and asked, “Does it still hurt?”
She shook her head. “It doesn’t hurt anymore. I didn’t suffer hardly at all, the whole process was very quick and even the doctor said that the child was very obedient in coming out.”
Xu Xinyi held his trembling hand and heard words that made her own heart tremble from Yi Yang’s thoughts.
–“We’re never having another child again.”
A week later, Xu Xinyi was released from the hospital, and the baby, who was now old enough to be taken home, was taken good care of by the whole Yi family.
Three nannies and three confinement nurses were brought in to work in shifts looking after Xu Xinyi and the baby 24 hours a day.
The child was still so young that he all he could do was cry, but the toys prepared for him were already enough to fill a room. Old Master Yi was nothing but generous and good things of all descriptions were put into his precious great-grandson’s room one after another, and when that room filled up, he just casually opened up another room for him. For the side, Yi Yang really couldn’t bear to watch. He reminded his grandfather that the child was still young and there was no need to buy him so many things, but Old Master Yi just said, “Why can’t I buy a few things for my great-grandson? Even if he can’t use them now, he might need them one day in the future. “
Obviously, Old Master Yi was willfully putting aside his own words that he had once said: ‘It’s not good to be too extravagant’. In fact, it wasn’t difficult to interpret his words to mean ‘Just give the child whatever he wants, now and in the future’. It seemed he was really not worried at all that his great-grandson might grow up into a spoiled dandy.
The baby grew up day by day and, as Mrs. Yi said, his skin turned white and tender, his two eyes, which looked very much like Yi Yang’s, were watery and full of life, like two thoroughly shiny black grapes. Anyone who saw him would have to sincerely sigh and say: ‘What a beautiful child.’
Regarding this matter, Xu Xinyi could proudly say: That’s my child!
Yi Yang also learned to be a good father and, in his spare time, he would personally feed and change the babies’ diapers. But, as the Old Master had predicted outside the delivery room, the father and son were always noisy whenever they were together.
For instance, as soon as Yi Yang would try to feed the baby, the baby who had been eating well in the arms of the nanny would suddenly stop eating. He would just stare up at Yi Yang with trembling lips as if he were scared. And when Yi Yang tried to change his diapers, the baby, who had been acting very good the second before would suddenly start wailing and crying.
After three consecutive defeats, the ‘good’ father resolutely gave up and decided that in the future he would instead be a strict father. He resolved to teach the baby well so he could assume the heavy responsibilities of the Yi Group.
When Xu Xinyi saw this, she looked at the baby in her arms with pity.
“It seems you don’t know how to curry favor with your father properly, instead, all you do is reject him. I’m afraid you’re already finished, when you grow up just see how that father of your will ‘torment’ you.”
Unfortunately, the baby who was still in his swaddling clothes was very busy spitting bubbles and waving his two small fat hands around, while giggling at Xu Xinyi with a face that was both ignorant and fearless. So he didn’t internalize her good advice at all.
Maybe there really was a feud carried over from their previous lives because when the baby learned to crawl, the first word he said was ‘mama’, the second words were ‘grandma’, and the third words were ‘great-grandpa’. The whole family went to great lengths to get the child to say the word ‘papa’ but the baby staunchly refused, and on that day anyone with eyes could see Yi Yang’s face turning stormy.
But Xu Xinyi didn’t worry that Yi Yang wouldn’t like his child.
That was because one time she woke up in the middle of the night and found there was no one in bed with her, so she got up to look for Yi Yang. As she had been walking by the nursery, she had heard Yi Yang whispering and coaxing the baby.
“Say papa. It’s papa. Say papa. Papa will give you this toy if you do. You’re a good boy, so be obedient. Say papa. Papa.”
Outside the door, Xu Xinyi covered her mouth and tried not to laugh. Then she couldn’t help but peek into the room.
Yi Yang was standing in front of the crib, holding a toy in his hand and trying to coax the incomparably spirited little boy inside into saying ‘papa’ over and over again.
But in the end, the confrontation between father and son ended with the vague sound of the baby filling his diaper.
It’s worth mentioning that on the first anniversary of the child’s birth, the film ‘Witness’ which was directed by Director Xu and starred in by Xu Xinyi, was scheduled to release on the first day of the next month. People from the film production side reached out in hopes that Xu Xinyi would cooperate with promoting the film.
Xu Xinyi generously agreed and took a picture of her baby’s little fist before posting it on Weibo.
The chubby little fist was just too cute.
“She gave birth, she gave birth, she really gave birth! Congratulations to Xinyi on becoming a mother.”
“Considering Xu Xinyi and Yi Yang’s appearances, that baby’s face must be absolutely godly! Is it too late for me to have a daughter?”
“My favorite woman and my favorite man had a child together!”
In less than half an hour, the topic #Xu Xinyi gave birth to a son# shot up the hot search.
The crew from ‘Witness’ also joined in the fun.
The sent out: ‘Congratulations from the entire staff of Witness~’
After that, the film quickly became very popular. Riding on its excellent plot and the acting skills of the main and supporting actors, it grossed 50 million yuan on the first day of its release, making it a dark horse in the box office. Following that, its performance in the box office began to skyrocket thanks to word-of-mouth and the film earned another 500 million yuan after the first week. By the end of its run in theaters, it had accumulated a total of 1.4 billion yuan at the box office.
1.4 billion yuan at the box office was undoubtedly a great success considering that the film had been made on a low-budget by the first time director, Director Xu.
As a result of that, Xu Xinyi’s popularity soared. With the release of this film, her acting skills were indisputably recognized throughout the industry and this newfound recognition wasn’t limited to recognition from the fans and the audience anymore, now it also included recognition from directors and investors inside the industry.
People would always be in high spirits when they were happy but, in life, things seem to tend to go wrong as soon as a person’s spirits became too high.
So, one night, when she was on the way to the celebration banquet, Xu Xinyi was running late because she had spent too much time coaxing the baby at home. Because the celebration banquet would be ending soon, and because there were normally not very many cars on the road in this villa area at this time of night, Xu Xinyi couldn’t help stepping on the accelerator a bit more heavily then she should have.
But, as luck would have it, as soon as she began to speed up there was an accident. She didn’t notice a car coming out from a fork in the road on her right that was directly on track to hit her. So, when she saw it, Xu Xinyi instinctively turned the steering wheel to the left, narrowly avoiding the other car, but at the same time hitting a pile of stones on the side of the road!
Fortunately, there were no other cars on the road at this time of night and Xu Xinyi had not been hurt at all. But the front of her car was so damaged that she couldn’t drive it anymore.
The first thing she did was call Yi Yang.
“Honey, I crashed my car.”
Xu Xinyi’s voice was a bit weak.
On the other end of the phone, when he heard Xu Xinyi say she crashed her car, Yi Yang’s heart froze.
“Are you hurt?”
“I’m not hurt.”
Xu Xinyi heard the person on the other end of the phone breathe an obvious sigh of relief so she quickly went on to tell him where she was.
“Wait for me. I’ll be right there.”
Less than ten minutes later, Yi Yang arrived in his car. Behind him were some other cars filled with people he brought along to take care of the aftermath.
As soon as he arrived, Yi Yang rushed out of his car and carefully checked Xu Xinyi from head to toe. After he saw that she really wasn’t hurt, his grim face loosened a little bit and he looked a little better.
“Get in my car first. They’ll take care of things here.”
Xu Xinyi obediently followed him and got into his car and the two drove home.
Along the way, Yi Yang’s face was dark and gloomy, and his brows furrowed sharply.
“Tell me, what happened?”
“I just… rushed a little. I didn’t notice that there was a car at the fork in front of me and I just stepped on the accelerator.”
“You ‘just’ stepped on the accelerator?” Yi Yang looked at her stormily. “Xu Xinyi, do you know that you were in a car wreck just now? Do you think that’s a small thing? Did you see what happened to the front of your car? You’re lucky that you didn’t get hurt but what if you did? What if you got hurt?”
–“Why do I have to say these things at a time like this!? How infuriating!”
When Xu Xinyi heard what Yi Yang was thinking. She thought about it carefully, sized up the situation, and apologized, “Sorry, I said the wrong thing. I was too careless just now. I won’t let myself be in such a hurry that I lose sight of the road in the future.”
“There’s no ‘in the future’,” said Yi Yang. “I’ll have a driver send you wherever you need to go when I’m not around.”
Xu Xinyi was stunned for a moment. When she finally reacted she spoke in a loud voice, “What do you mean by that? You won’t let me drive? I’ve been driving for so many years and I’ve only ever been negligent once! I’m a good driver, I don’t need someone else to drive me!”
“No, I don’t!”
–“How dare you say that you are a good driver when you crash your car like that? How infuriating!”
–“No! She’s not allowed to drive again for at least six months.”
Xu Xinyi glared at Yi Yang, not wanting to give in.
Yi Yang, however, just ignored her and drove silently without even looking at her.
The place where the accident happened was not far from the Yi estate so the two were home in less than ten minutes. The two elders were waiting for them anxiously downstairs in the living room. As soon as the couple walked inside, they hurriedly rushed over to Xu Xinyi and asked, “Are you all right? Yi Yang said you were in a car crash? Are you hurt?”
“Grandpa, mom, it’s okay. I’m not hurt.”
They both sighed in relief.
“You child, why are you so careless? Thankfully, you didn’t hurt yourself. Be more careful next time.”
At the same time, Yi Yang went straight upstairs without saying anything. Xu Xinyi called out behind him but he didn’t respond.
When they saw Xu Xinyi’s frustrated face, Old Master Yi and Mrs. Yi exchanged glances.
“You, ah~, you were so reckless. Do you know how frightened Yi Yang was when he received your phone call? He was in such a hurry to go out and make sure you were okay that he didn’t even change his shoes.”
When they mentioned it, Xu Xinyi noticed that Yi Yang really had been wearing his indoor shoes when he came to get her.
Some of her displeasure with Yi Yang suddenly evaporated and what was left was just some inexplicable guilt.
“I’m sorry to have worried you, grandpa, mom.”
“We’re just glad that you’re alright. You should go up and see Yi Yang first.”
Xu Xinyi nodded and went upstairs to the study.
At the door of the study, Xu Xinyi smiled and called out, “Husband…”
“I’ll only say two things. First, whenever you go out in the future, find me or a driver, you’re not allowed to drive anymore. Second, go back to the room and go to sleep for now. I’m very angry at the moment, I’ll come to bed with you later.”
Xu Xinyi’s words froze in her throat as she felt the low pressure Yi Yang was emitting. Eventually, she gave up and turned and went back to their room to go to sleep.
Around one o’clock in the morning, Xu Xinyi looked like she was asleep on her side of the bed but, when Yi Yang lay down, her hands suddenly reached out and hugged him.
The lights suddenly flicked on.
Xu Xinyi rested her head on his neck near his ear and looked at him. He could see the apology in her clear and bright eyes. “Are you still angry?” She murmured.
–“…forget it. It’s fine.”
But his mouth said: “Angry.”
Xu Xinyi smiled and hugged him tighter, “Don’t be angry, I will take driving more seriously in the future.”
“In the future?”
“Ah, there is no future.” Xu Xinyi coaxed him, “When I go out I’ll always take a driver.”
They could just talk about it later. Once a few days went by, Xu Xinyi didn’t believe that Yi Yang would still remember this conversation. And even if he did, so what? It wasn’t like Yi Yang could keep an eye on her 24 hours a day to stop her from driving.
There would always be an opportunity.
But in the end, because of this matter, Xu Xinyi would use a driver when she went out for a long time afterward. In truth, it was very uncomfortable for her to always have a driver with her because it felt like there was always someone watching her wherever she went out.
But she knew in her heart that Yi Yang was only worried about her and he was only thinking for her own good, so she put up with it.
Then, after putting up with it for a while, one day she noticed that Anya had started driving a beautiful and stylish silver-gray sports car.
“Anya, you… a sports car?”
Anya stepped out of the sports car handsomely, took off her sunglasses, and said with a smile, “What do you think?”
“It’s beautiful! So handsome!”
“Haha, isn’t it? I was on a waiting list for a whole year before I could buy this car so, of course it’s beautiful. Do you want to get in?”
Xu Xinyi nodded hurriedly.
There were actually millions of luxury cars parked in the garages of the Yi estate and Lanting. Xu Xinyi herself even had more than a few cars in her own name, but she didn’t have any sports cars.
They drove along a highway that was built alongside the river and Xu Xinyi’s hair flew wildly behind her. She looked out at the blue sky and the blue sea, taking in the boundless horizon, and the excitement made her want to shout with joy.
After Xu Xinyi experienced the thrill of a sports car, she quickly went back to count the money in her accounts. She saw that what she had on hand was more than enough to buy a sports car or two so, because she had never been the type of person who would wrong herself, she began browsing all kinds of sports cars that very day before finally settling on a red Ferrari.
It had smooth lines and beautiful colors and Xu Xinyi knew at first sight that this sports car had been made for her.
However, there was a limit to how many units of this car were sold globally.
And the quantity set aside to be sold domestically was very small.
Plus, there were conditions to be able to purchase it. You had to either already be the owner of a Ferrari or be a member of a Ferrari club.
Of course, Xu Xinyi did not meet any of these conditions.
Anya politely reminded her that in certain cases connections could help make things happen.
Xu Xinyi thought about it for a moment, but she didn’t seem to have any connections in this area?
“Your husband probably does.” Anya said.
That single sentence seemed to wake Xu Xinyi from her dream. Her eyes turned focused.
Xu Xinyi hurriedly went home that day and began to pay serious attention. Belts, ties, watches, cufflinks, and other similar gifts were placed in front of Yi Yang one after another.
Yi Yang saw all this and became very alert.
–“Suddenly so nice for no reason, she can’t have good intentions.”
Although she had been seen through immediately by Yi Yang, Xu Xinyi didn’t blush or flinch back at all. “Today I was out shopping and I happened to see these. I thought they suited you so I especially bought them for you, rest assured, they were very expensive.”
In order to show Yi Yang the value of these gifts, Xu Xinyi handed him the receipt.
Yi Yang took a look and saw that they were indeed very expensive.
“Is something the matter?”
Xu Xinyi thought for a moment before she carefully opened her mouth. “It’s nothing much. I just wanted to say that I’ve been taking the driver out for a long time already… I did the math and it’s been almost half a year…”
“You can start driving again if you want. Just drive a little more carefully.”
Xu Xinyi put on a very moved expression and said, “Husband, you are so sweet!”
“Was there anything else?”
Xu Xinyi had a plastic smile: “There’s also… one small thing.”
Yi Yang looked at Xu Xinyi’s expression and said slowly, “It doesn’t look like it’s a trivial matter.”
“I just want to buy something.”
“You don’t have enough money?”
“I have enough money!” Xu Xinyi stressed that although the price of the car was in the eight figures, she could still afford it. It was just that she had no method to buy it, so she couldn’t buy it. “It’s just that I can’t buy it myself so, husband, will you help me?”
“What is it you want to buy?”
“…promise me first.”
“How can I promise you if you don’t tell me what it is?”
“It’s just a little thing, for you it should be a matter of saying a few words.”
Yi Yang narrowed his eyes slightly and examined Xu Xinyi.
–“Her attitude is all wrong. If she keeps being so ambiguous, there must be something wrong with it.”
Xu Xinyi: “…”
Eventually she caved and quickly said, “It’s just that I want to buy a car.”
“Do we not have enough cars at home?”
“No, it’s just that I took a fancy to a certain car, but there are conditions for the purchase. Husband, you’re so well-informed and well-connected, can’t you ask around for me?”
He had just let her start driving again and now she suddenly wanted to buy a car. Yi Yang was really a little worried.
–“Forget it. She is a mother now, she probably isn’t as reckless as she used to be.”
“What kind of car?”
When she saw Yi Yang relaxing his stance, Xu Xinyi smiled and said, “A Ferrari.”
“…” It turned out to be a sports car! Yi Yang instantly reversed his decision, “Xu Xinyi, you want to drive a sports car not long after being in a car wreck? Don’t even think about it! “
“Didn’t you promise to always help me?”
“I didn’t promise you a sports car!”
“I didn’t ask you to buy it, I’ll buy it myself! I can pay for it myself!”
“Then buy it yourself, don’t involve me!”
Xu Xinyi ground her teeth, “Will you help me buy it or not?”
Yi Yang’s reply was clean and decisive, “Won’t help.”
“You really won’t help me?”
–“Don’t you dare do such a dangerous thing like car racing! How infuriating!”
Seeing that Yi Yang was getting angry, Xu Xinyi quickly sized up the situation and softened her temper. “But husband, I really like this sports car. And I promise that I will drive carefully, I won’t do any racing, and there will be no accidents.”
Yi Yang didn’t believe a word of Xu Xinyi’s nonsense.
“Husband, it’s true! Besides, you know that I’m usually very busy with work. I barely have time to drive whem I’m working with a crew, and if I’m not on a crew then I’m rushing around trying to make it on time to one appointment or another, so I really don’t have a chance to drive much. So how…?”
“Then why do you want to buy it?”
Xu Xinyi’s litany of excuses were blocked by a single sentence.
Xu Xinyi was getting exasperated, this dog man’s ability to pick and nag at every little thing seemed to be becoming more and more powerful!
So she just blurted. “I’ll buy it and put it in the garage to look at. As long as it’s mine, I’ll be happy!”
Yi Yang watched at her calmly.
–“Those are some nice words, but will you really not drive it around after you buy it? I don’t believe that.”
Xu Xinyi: “…if you won’t help me, then don’t help me!”
Xu Xinyi left the room very forcefully.
Was he kidding with her? There were so many sports cars in the world, it’s not like that was the only one. Couldn’t she just buy a different car?
What’s more, Xu Xinyi was already a woman who had a firm foothold in the entertainment industry, okay?
She didn’t believe that she didn’t have any connections!
However, that night, Xu Xinyi searched through all the people she knew and, except for a few people who she really couldn’t contact, there was no one who could help her.
Look for Anya?
…Anya had been one a waiting list to buy her sports car for a year.
At the end of the day, it seemed that Yi Yang was the most reliable one.
Unfortunately, the most reliable person didn’t want to help her.
Unable to find anyone who could help her, Xu Xinyi silently sat on one corner of the sofa.
As soon as Yi Yang returned to their room that was what he saw. Xu Xinyi was curled up on the corner of the sofa and, when she heard him coming back, she looked up at him with an aggrieved and pitiful face.
“Yi Yang, you don’t love me anymore.”
“…” Yi Yang didn’t want to talk to her.
“Honey, I feel so sick and sad. I want to cry.”
Xu Xinyi thought to herself: Yi Yang always comes to comfort her, right? Then the two of them could hug each other affectionately, say a few words of love, this would lead to that, and then she could make Yi Yang promise, right?
But who knew, this time, Yi Yang opened his mouth and said: “If you want to cry, then cry.”
Yi Yang, this dog man, just listen to him! Was he speaking human words?
“…but I want to cry in a Ferrari!”
Regarding the matter of the sports car, Yi Yang did not relent. Xu Xinyi’s car crash incident was still a lingering fear in his heart but, unexpectedly, she suddenly wanted to drive a sports car? He could never have promised Xu Xinyi to hang himself on the edge.
The things a person couldn’t get were always the things that seemed the best. So, after two consecutive days of facing Yi Yang’s stormy face, Xu Xinyi fixed her eyes on their baby with an innocent face.
“They say that you raise a baby for a thousand days and then the baby will take care of you for a lifetime. Baby, mommy is putting all her hope on you.”
The baby saw that his mommy had come over and waved two chubby little hands at her with a smile on his face. He had no idea what was going on under his kind-hearted mother’s smile.
