I ADORE HIM
(The Truth behind the Car Accident (9)
Gu Yusheng looked down at Qin Zhi’ai’s hands and forced down the words on the tip of his tongue.
The only sound in the living room was Liang Doukou telling Old Master Gu the storyline in the next episodes of the TV show they were watching. Gu Yusheng found her voice cloying, causing him to frown and raise his hand to rub his temple while his other hand held the scan in his lap. As he was bringing his hand down, he saw his grandfather glancing at the scan out of the corner of his eye.
Does he want to see little peanut’s photo? Why else would he keep trying to stare at it?
Gu Yusheng paused his hand in the air for a second, as if he suddenly remembered something. He then raised the scan in front of QIn Zhi’ai, indifferent to Liang Doukou’s presence, and spoke softly to Qin Zhi’ai. “Xiao’ai, look how beautiful our baby is. This is the very first photo—so memorable.”
While quietly chatting with Qin Zhi’ai, Gu Yusheng glanced at his grandfather, who he could clearly see was still curious about the scan.
So, Grandpa Gu does care about his great-grandchild…
Gu Yusheng secretly smiled in his head, and his words became even more touching. “I think the baby’s face will show up much better when we have the next checkup, but I can still tell where the face is now, though.”
Sitting next to Gu Yusheng, Old Master Gu opened his mouth, looking like he wanted to ask to see the scan; however, thinking that he had already turned their offer down before, he didn’t want to say that he wanted to see it now. He forced himself to not ask, but he clearly looked anxious.
Gu Yusheng continued his teasing, pointing out shadows and dots and generally speaking nonsense. He had no idea what part of the baby he was looking at, saying, “Look, here’s the baby’s arms, the legs, and a head…”
“I’m going to the bathroom.” Grandpa interrupted Liang Doukou, who had not stopped talking the entire time. He put on his glasses and stood up with the help of his cane.
As he passed by Gu Yusheng and Qin Zhi’ai, he slowed down, even pretending to search for something in his pocket so he could stop in front of them. Gu Yusheng saw him peeking at the scan in his hand out of the corner of his eye. Gu Yusheng casually put the scan back into Qin Zhi’ai’s purse and zipped it up.
“Xiao’ai, do you think it’s a girl or boy?” Gu Yusheng tenderly held Qin Zhi’ai by her shoulder. As he chatted with her, he looked up to glance at his grandfather and curled up his lips when he saw him looking disappointed for not being able to look at the scan.
Gu Yusheng then said, “I heard you can tell the baby’s sex at only three months. The doctored mentioned that at the checkup today.”
Old Master Gu, who’d made another start to the bathroom, suddenly stopped again.
I wonder if it’s a girl or a boy…
Gu Yusheng whispered in Qin Zhi’ai’s ear so that no one else could hear him, “I hope it’s a girl.”
