MY BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
(Going To Hospital For Prenatal Checkup)
Lin Che asked, “Even more than Jingyan?”
“Of course. When you get back, you’ll immediately be bombarded with gifts.”
Lin Che waved her hand dismissively. “Well, it’s like this… Oh right, I only took a pregnancy test kit to check. I haven’t gone to the hospital.”
Gu Jingze said, “I’ll take you to the hospital tomorrow. We shall eat first today.”
He pulled her to his side. Their chairs faced each other and they sat across from each other. Very soon, the service staff served their dishes. Lin Che gazed at Gu Jingze. Those beaming eyes almost made her melt.
How could anyone take him staring at themselves like this?
However, knowing that he felt happy also made her very happy.
Lin Che decided to stop looking at him. She lowered her head and ate her food.
Gu Jingze stopped her hand. “Let me help you.”
Gu Jingze spoke as he took over the plate and spoon. He scooped up some of the rice and prepared to feed Lin Che.
Lin Che looked around her speechlessly. There were so many people in the restaurant. Wasn’t this too intimate?
“There is no need. I can do it myself.”
“I said let me do it. Sit still and don’t move.” Gu Jingze did not listen to her. When he saw her wanting to shift her seat away, he pulled it even closer towards him.
After that, he placed the spoon in front of her and said, “Open your mouth. Eat.”
“…” Lin Che could only look at him speechlessly and then at the people around them.
Gu Jingze asked, “What are you looking at? They don’t recognize you.”
Fine. He was right.
Lin Che opened her mouth to eat. Since she was no longer resisting, Gu Jingze smiled satisfactorily and fed her one spoonful at a time. They were so intimate that people started turning to look at them.
The staff also looked over, smiled, and approached them with a camera. She spoke in English to Gu Jingze, “Sir, do you mind if we take a photo of you two?”
Gu Jingze narrowed his eyes. “For what?”
The staff said, “We thought that you two look so sweet so we want to take a photo of you two to place on our wall of memories.”
Gu Jingze looked at Lin Che. It was rare that they were so happy. He was much more relaxed and said to the staff, “Okay, go ahead.”
The staff smiled and said, “Please be at ease. Pretend as if I’m not here and continue feeding each other.”
Gu Jingze smiled. He reached out and continued feeding Lin Che.
Lin Che could not help but ask quizzically, “What did she say just now?”
Gu Jingze took a glance and said, “They said that they wanted to take a photo of us.”
Just as she was talking, the staff already snapped a picture of them.
Lin Che said, “Hey hey hey, that’s too ugly.”
Gu Jingze replied, “There’s nothing ugly about it. Didn’t I say that nobody here recognizes you anyway?”
The staff showed the photo to Gu Jingze and Lin Che.
The staff smiled and said, “It’s really gorgeous. Take a look. You look great and match very well together. You are also very beautiful.”
Gu Jingze nodded and looked at the photo.
The staff thanked them and said to Lin Che, “Miss, you are very lucky.”
Lin Che was still trying to understand her but the staff had already left.
Gu Jingze continued, “Okay, hurry up and eat. Even if you’re not hungry, the little one in there must be already starving.”
Lin Che blushed. She still hasn’t quite gotten used to the fact that she was carrying Gu Jingze’s child.
She wondered if this child would grow up to be smart and beautiful like his father.
She was very excited for the child to be born. She anticipated seeing how their child would look like.
The two of them carried on with their food. Anybody who saw would show their puzzlement on the surface. However, they were also very envious of how these two could be so sweet.
Early the next morning, Gu Jingze already prepared the car and took Lin Che to see a doctor he made an appointment with.
Gu Jingze personally drove her.
They went to a doctor who looked extremely professional. When the couple went in, the doctor looked at them happily, “Oh, you must be my afternoon appointment. You look very young.”
Gu Jingze said, “Yes, my wife is quite young.”
“And also very skinny. I think her first pregnancy will be a little tougher on her. You must take good care of her.”
Gu Jingze heard this and tightened his grip on her hand. He looked worriedly at Lin Che.
“Will there be any danger, Doctor?” Gu Jingze asked.
“Oh no, no. Of course not. It’s just that the first pregnancy is normally tougher to go through. I can see that you’re very concerned about your wife,” the doctor smiled.
Gu Jingze nodded. “Yes, she’s so young and bearing a child for me. It’s only right that I worry about her.”
The doctor’s face was filled with sweetness. “Aww, you’re a really good husband. Come bring your wife here and we’ll take a look.”
Gu Jingze led Lin Che as they walked in together.
She took a blood test, temperature check, and finally an ultrasound.
The doctor looked at Lin Che and said, “Oh, Madam, you’re really very pretty. Your figure is great too and your skin is so nice during your pregnancy.”
Lin Che smiled. She didn’t understand the doctor, but she could tell that the doctor must have been complimenting her.
Gu Jingze looked at her flat belly and thought that she was indeed too skinny. Her body was perfect. It was fair, smooth, and flawless. It was going to expand because of the baby and might even leave permanent scars.
Gu Jingze couldn’t bear it.
He actually was starting to regret letting her have a baby.
A woman sacrificed way too much to have a baby.
Especially when the doctor also said that having a child was tough. She was still so young.
Gu Jingze grabbed her hand and stared intensely at her face.
Lin Che looked up into his eyes. “What’s wrong?”
Gu Jingze said, “It might be dangerous to have a child. Even if it’s not dangerous, it’s going to leave scars on your body.”
Lin Che was stunned. After that, she realized that he was worried about her.
She gradually held his hand reassuringly and looked at his blazing eyes.
“Silly, isn’t it the same for all pregnant women? The danger is inevitable and… I’m willing.”
As Lin Che spoke, her head lowered bashfully.
Gu Jingze’s heart still ached. Just then, the doctor smiled and said, “Come take a look. This is your child.”
It was different from back in C Nation where pregnant women could not see their ultrasound scans. Here, the monitor was facing the pregnant woman so that she could see her own child properly.
There were some very fine lines inside that surprised Lin Che. She couldn’t tell that it was a baby, but she could see a little dot in the middle. The doctor said, “Oh, it’s now about seven weeks old. We’ll help you find out the exact date. Yes, it looks very healthy. Your womb is also very healthy. I hope your baby can grow healthily too.”
Lin Che gazed at that little dot and was filled with amazement. She tugged Gu Jingze’s hand and asked, “Is that our child there?”
Gu Jingze also took a look although his heart was filled with the concerns from just now. The scan looked very amazing, but it made him worry about Lin Che’s safety more.
Lin Che asked, “What exactly is it?”
Gu Jingze said, “If I could choose, I hope he will be a little skinnier and a little smaller so that when he is born, your body will suffer less damage.”
Lin Che’s heart moved.
