South Wind Knows My Mood - Chapter 8.5
“You will never sleep on the sofa again.”
“Sleep on time at ten. Do not wait for me.”
“Don’t use too much aircon, don’t open the window too.”
“Don’t touch the computer.”
“Eat on time, eat more.”
“Don’t go to work, that place is too far away…”
“Hello!” Ruan Ruan laughed hard to stop him, “My dear Twelve, I’ve just got pregnant, and it’s only been a few weeks.” Why does he almost regard her as a protected animal!
She thought that his reaction to the news should be as ecstatic as herself, but she didn’t know that he, who was usually cold and indifferent, would be like an old lady.
Her heart felt so warm.
“Twelve, do you want a boy or a girl?”
“I love both.”
“I want a boy, I hope he could be as handsome as you.”
He caressed her eyes, “But their eyes should be like you.”
They talked about a lot of things in detail.
That night, Fu Xizhou’s hand never left Ruan Ruan’s belly.
Later, Ruan Ruan fell asleep. She didn’t know that Fu Xizhou got up again in the middle of the night, and quietly put his face on the top of Ruan Ruan’s belly. He didn’t dare to press her, so he held his body slightly and listened quietly for a long time.
He felt that he was also infected with Ruan Ruan’s foolishness, but those thin and dense joys in his heart, like colorful bubbles, flew out of his chest one by one.
There was an unprecedented sense of satisfaction in his heart as if he had nothing to ask for at this moment in his life.
The next night, Ruan Ruan looked at the pile of baby supplies that Fu Xizhou had brought back and opened her mouth in surprise.
Clothes, socks, shoes, milk bottles, pampers, toys, baby strollers, etc, and there are also pregnant dresses. She simply suspected that he had bought the entire baby supermarket. She imagined that he was standing in front of the baby supplies area, wondering what to buy. Thinking about this, she couldn’t help but burst out laughing.
After a few days, Fu Xizhou started to renovate the baby’s room by himself. He asked people to install the baby’s bed and even decorated the room like a castle in the amusement park!
Ruan Ruan kept laughing and felt touched, “Twelve, you… really really prepare it way too advanced!”
He kissed her forehead and put his face on her belly. This has been his new habit for every night now. Suddenly, he remembered something and suddenly spoke in a very firm tone, “Ruan Ruan, about your pregnancy, you must not tell anyone from the Fu’s!”
Ruan Ruan understood his worries and nodded. She stroked her belly softly and vowed in her heart, Baby, Mama will protect you, I would not let anyone hurt you.
There was determination in her bright and clear eyes. Mother was probably the most magical existence in this world. She could be extremely gentle, or extremely tough.
And Fu Lingtian’s birthday came in a blink of an eye. Although the old man recovered from his illness, his spirit was yet back to normal. However, he did not listen to Fu Rong’s persuasion and insisted on hosting a birthday banquet. It was proved that he was still the same killer Fu Lingtian. The disease could not simply defeat him!
The banquet itself was not held at the hotel but on the riverside. This was Fun Yunshen’s idea. He said it would create a nice atmosphere for grandpa’s birthday party. If this was in the past, Fu Lingtian would not like this fancy arrangement, but since the illness, he changed. He even recognized Fu Yunshen as thoughtful.
Fu Yunshen rented a luxury cruise ship that traveled the river at night. At night in summer, the riverside scenery of Liancheng was exquisite. The lights on both sides of the river were bright, reflecting the sparkling water. With the wind in early summer blowing slowly, simply sip the champagne on the deck, watch the live band play, laugh, and talk. You even can also invite people to dance.
Such a pleasant atmosphere, it was really a wonderful night.
But Ruan Ruan felt it was boring. She never liked such a loud banquet, and most of the guests were from their business. This naturally couldn’t make Fu Xizhou run away. Although he tried to keep her at his side, their endless business conversation and greetings were just too boring for her.
“Will you be alright alone?” Fu Xizhou hesitantly asked.
“No problem. Just go, no need to worry.” Ruan Ruan sat in a relatively quiet corner of the inner cabin to rest, perhaps because of her early pregnancy. She always felt tired these days. No matter how much she slept, she still feels sleepy.
After sitting for a while, someone came in and when she opened her eyes, she laughed, “Ge ge!”
Gu Hengzhi, with two glasses of champagne in his hand, went to her and sat down, handing her one.
Ruan Ruan shook her head.
“Why, has the little drunkard changed her mind?” Gu Hengzhi was fussy. He knew how much Ruan Ruan liked to drink. When they had dinner together, they always ordered some wine to accompany the meal.
Ruan Ruan stroked her abdomen and said with a smile, “Ge, let me tell you good news. I’m pregnant and you are about to become an uncle! Be Happy!”
Although Fu Xizhou told her that the fewer people knew about her pregnancy, the better, Ruan Ruan never thought that her brother was not an outsider. So, it would not be a problem.
Gu Hengzhi was stunned.
“Oh…” Gu Hengzhi returned to his senses. He tried his best to form a big and wide smile, “Really? Congratulations!”
Gu Hengzhe stood up, “Then I will bring you warm water.”
But, he had already left.
When he got to the deck, he leaned against the railing and looked at the water in a daze.
Suddenly he felt his hand release the wine. The cup of wine in his left hand was taken away.
“Hello! What are you doing? I called you twice with no reaction.” The newcomer drank up the wine in the glass and put the empty glass back in Gu Hengzhi’s hand.
Gu Hengzhi looked at him, then glanced at the water and said in a low voice, “Ah Jing, have you ever felt this way? You know that some people will never belong to you, but you are always attached to them.”
Fu Xijing was a little surprised and shot a strange look at his friend. Perhaps because this unreasonable sentence came from Gu Hengzhi, who had always been playful and never serious. This felt…. weird.
Right at this time, someone not far away from them greeted Fu Xijing. He patted Gu Hengzhi on the shoulder and said, “If you can’t let it go, then fight to the end.” Then he walked away.
Gu Hengzhi watched his back, with a smile on his corner lips, he thought, Ah Jing, my situation is different from yours. He knows that Fu Xijing always kept looking for his little girlfriend Ji Nanfeng. But the girl pretended not to know him. Fu Xijing didn’t give up and pursued her tirelessly. Even for her sake, he agreed to work with her as a real estate company and stayed in Haicheng. All of that for the return of her love.
Fu Xijing told him he didn’t know what actually happened when Ji Nanfeng left him that time. She was so resistant to him, but it doesn’t matter. He still loved her so much that he would not give up.
However, Gu Hengzhi thought that he did not give up because the other side was still free. And the one in his heart, he looked directly to the inner cabin with a bitter smile. Let’s say, if she married before and Fu Xizhou ran from their marriage, and after a series of despicable problems, he still had a thought that perhaps she would leave him sooner or later…
But now, she was going to be a mother!
The little girl who used to follow him and rely on him endlessly was going to be a mother.
Gu Hengzhi closed his eyes and was unwilling to admit it. He knew that he would never have a chance again. Even this feeling in his heart, could not ever be mentioned at all.
