I ADORE HIM
(Yusheng, I Am Pregnant (3)
Gu Yusheng looked even worse when he heard Qin Zhi’ai laughing. He gave her a dirty look, so she pressed her lips together to suppress her laughter with her head down.
No one had ever dared to laugh at him before. Ordinarily, he would have raged at this, too, but this situation required that he suppress his anger for the moment.
Gu Yusheng looked at his phone and pressed the button to end the call as hard as he could.
Lu Bancheng found a gynecologist, who arrived at Gu Yusheng’s house at almost the same time as Dr. Xia. Both of them had examined Liang Doukou in the past.
Gu Yusheng nagged at them the entire time they were examining Qin Zhi’ai.
“Did you check her blood pressure? Is her heartbeat stable? Is the baby normal?”
His interruptions dragged the examination to well over an hour. As Gu Yusheng walked the doctors downstairs, having left the bedroom door open, Qin Zhi’ai could hear them talking at the foot of the stairs.
“Are the mother and baby healthy?”
“Is there anything that’s not normal?”
“Are you sure she only needs to take folic acid? What about nutrition in general?”
Qin Zhi’ai, sitting on the bed, felt touched. She looked down with her lips pressed together, and she could not help but smile.
Gu Yusheng carried a glass of milk in his hand as he walked upstairs.
He checked the time as Qin Zhi’ai drank the milk. It was already 11 in the evening. Knowing that pregnant women needed a lot of sleep, Gu Yusheng immediately turned off the light and urged her to sleep.
But with so many ongoing surprises that night, Qin Zhi’ai had not settled down from all the excitement. She closed her eyes but could not fall asleep.
She snuggled in Gu Yusheng’s arms in the dark. She could clearly sense the change in his body; she knew he wanted to have sex, but he was trying to suppress his sexual desire for her.
Even though he didn’t say a word or move his body, she still could tell from his irregular breathing that he was trying hard. She opened her eyes, leaned into his ear, and whispered as low as possible, “Yusheng, how about…”
She put her hand into his.
He knew what she was trying to say. He turned around, kissed her, and then slowly moved her hand down.
After Qin Zhi’ai fell asleep, Gu Yusheng put on his clothes and got out of bed.
He sat in the study the entire night and smoked two packs of cigarettes. He read three pregnancy books online until dawn. He did not leave the study until his sexual desires were finally gone.
He smelled heavily of smoke and, not wanting her to smell it, he went to the guest bedroom instead of the master to take a shower.
As he stepped out of the shower, he heard the door open downstairs. He knew it was the housekeeper, so he detoured from returning to the master bedroom and went downstairs. After giving the housekeeper the day’s instructions, he walked back to the master bedroom.
Early Monday morning, Gu Yusheng took Qin Zhi’ai to the city hall.
They arrived before the city hall opened and had to wait in the car for more than 20 minutes.
They were the first ones there, so they walked in and immediately started filling out forms and getting their photos taken. Within just a few minutes, they had their marriage certificates.
Even though the certificates were thin and flimsy, both Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai held them in their hands as their eyes became red and hot.
Gu Yusheng had a meeting at noon, and Qin Zhi’ai needed to go to her school and let them know she would not be going to study overseas.
