I ADORE HIM
(Yusheng, I Am Pregnant (4)
Upon exiting the city hall, Gu Yusheng first drove Qin Zhi’ai to West University before driving off to his office after seeing her enter the campus.
When Qin Zhi’ai notified the school of her sudden change in study plans, those in the administration office took the news in stride, making her suspicious that Gu Yusheng may have already notified them himself without telling her.
After leaving the office, noting that it was still early in the day, Qin Zhi’ai headed to the library to use the school computer and prepare for her graduation thesis that was due in two months.
Gu Yusheng was extremely busy at work; however, he still managed to drop Qin Zhi’ai a text or a call throughout the day. Every time he contacted her, he never failed to warm up her heart with sweetness and love.
On the other hand, Xiaowang, who had to tail after Gu Yusheng all day, felt as if his ears were going to fall off.
When Gu Yusheng reached the office that morning, he glowed with a bright spirit. All that he lacked was a sign that read, “I’m in a brilliant mood today!”
When Xiaowang entered Gu Yusheng’s office to fill him in on their schedule for the day, he watched as Gu Yusheng listened with a smile on his face during the entire report. Feeling emboldened, Xiaowang inquired at the end of his report, “Master Gu, has everything been smooth sailing since last Friday?”
Gu Yusheng sat leisurely at his desk and took his time to read through the document before replying, “Mm,” in an unconcerned way. Subsequently, as if he wanted to fish out a cigarette, he groped about in his pockets and fished out a marriage certificate instead.
Xiaowang’s sharp eyes caught the certificate, and he immediately relayed his well wishes. “Congratulations on your union, Master Gu.”
Gu Yusheng accepted his blessing calmly and was about to let him leave when he suddenly thought of Qin Zhi’ai’s pregnancy. Pausing his motion of flipping through the documents, he held up his phone and called Qin Zhi’ai. When she answered, he asked, “How are you feeling? Is the baby alright?”
Upon hearing this, Xiaowang immediately congratulated Gu Yusheng again when he ended the call. “Is Secretary Qin pregnant?”
“Yes. In only one night, I got both a wife and a child,” Gu Yusheng replied exasperatedly.
“Master Gu, congrats on the double blessings,” Xiaowang said sincerely.
After hearing all the well wishes that he wanted, Gu Yusheng nodded his head in satisfaction and finally indicated for Xiaowang to make his exit.
When Xiaowang had initially congratulated Gu Yusheng, Xiaowang had not thought much about it. He simply assumed that Gu Yusheng had accidentally exposed his marriage certificate and that he’d coincidentally made a quick call to Qin Zhi’ai. But later, he realized that everything that had happened in the morning with Gu Yusheng was part of a scheme.
Xiaowang was first clued in when the finance manager came over to deliver a report. Gu Yusheng’s marriage certificate fell to the floor all of a sudden while he was reading through the report.
The manager immediately conveyed his blessings to Gu Yusheng as he picked up the certificate for him. Assuming a serious look as he read through the report, Gu Yusheng casually replied, “Mm,” and then, pretending to answer a call, said into the phone, “What’s wrong? Is there a problem with the baby?”
After he ended the call, the manager inevitably asked out of curiosity, “Master Gu, is Mrs. Gu pregnant?”
Dropping the phone back into his pocket, Gu Yusheng appeared to be troubled but answered in a flaunting manner, “Yeah, within one night, I got both a wife and a child. The pressure of life is rather heavy right now.”
And during an afternoon meeting, Gu Yusheng connected his computer to the projector in the conference room and, while opening documents for the meeting, he accidentally clicked a photo instead.
