Chapter 878: A Million Times for You (240)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Pure romance films.”
“Sure.” They leaned back against the headboard while Jin Qingyan began searching for some romance films on his laptop.
The film was a heartwarming story about puppy love. He accompanied her to watch it until the end.
It would have been the best moments of An Xiaoning’s life lately had there been no disturbance at all.
Yet, there were people who were out to ruin her peace.
She received a call from Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+.
She did not pick up.
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ continued to call incessantly.
An Xiaoning refused to answer.
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ continued calling like a madwoman.
She called An Xiaoning more than a hundred times and finally stopped after she got sick of it.
Needless to say, An Xiaoning had no idea that Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ was filled with panic, fear, and exasperation all at once. She had never been worried about this problem previously because An Xiaoning was still her G.o.dsister then. However, things were different now.
They were no longer related to each other.
Now that An Xiaoning threatened them with her knowledge of their birth characters, G.o.d knows what she can do if they did anything to upset her…
She was just like a ticking time bomb.
After much thought, she decided that she still had to depend on her husband to resolve the issue.
Hence, she told Tuoba Gucheng about the matter.
Noticing how unsurprised he was, Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ prompted, “Hubby, my life and those of my mother and our child all lie in An Xiaoning’s hands now.”
He looked up at her and said, “You should’ve thought about that when you requested her to save your life back then.”
“Thought about what?”
“If she could save your life, she can very well take it away. What do you want me to do? Arrest her and have her executed? I’m afraid by the time my people get there, you’ll…” he said with a shrug.
“Hubby, you can’t arrest her openly. Can we try doing it in secret?”
Keeping his eyes fixed on her, Tuoba Gucheng asked, “Enlighten me, how am I supposed to do it in secret?”
Unable to tell the hidden meaning in his eyes, Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ immediately said, “Send a top a.s.sa.s.sin to kill her.”
“What if they fail and she ends up being alarmed?”
“Send more of them and catch her off guard.”
“I’ve already tried to kill her once. I made her drink some lethal poison, and she bled from every crevice of her face. Ever since then, she’s been alive and well. What makes you think an a.s.sa.s.sin can kill her?” said Tuoba Gucheng as he rose from his seat.
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ exclaimed in astonishment, “Lethal poison!?! How could an ordinary person…”
“That’s exactly it. She’s not an ordinary person.”
He said that he tried to kill An Xiaoning once. Seems like he doesn’t harbor any feelings for her. Otherwise, why would he want to kill her?
Wait, no. Could it be that his love had turned into hatred?
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ repeatedly pondered over her thoughts.
“Why did you want to kill her?”
“I had my own reasons, of course. I won’t kill her now.”
“But… I’m afraid…” Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ muttered, feeling ill at ease.
“She wouldn’t be so bored as to kill you, so long as you don’t provoke her. Why do you have to be afraid?”
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ was filled with insecurity, feeling as if she had contracted cancer, for she was unsure when her death would arrive.
Pangs of panic and anxiety engulfed her.
“Hubby, news of the new ban have already been released, and the ban has taken effect too. I’ve seen many netizens who are complaining about An Xiaoning on the internet. If this goes on…”
“You should know whether or not she’s really a vicious witch who’s out to harm the lives of citizens, as those netizens have made her out to be. Since you’re aware of how truly powerful she is, why do you still want to paint a false image of her in front of the public? I already said from the start, tarnis.h.i.+ng her reputation and using this excuse to arrest her is not going to work, yet you guys were so insistent on executing your plan. Didn’t I tell you beforehand that this would be the outcome? Are you going to give up now?” said Tuoba Gucheng, giving her the side eye.
“Those citizens don’t know the actual situation.”
Glaring at her in disdain, Tuoba Gucheng sneered, “What are you so afraid of, then? Since you were actively partic.i.p.ating in causing such a stir, don’t be so cowardly.”
“I still think you’re defending her.”
“I just can’t communicate with you. Go out.”
“Will you accompany me to the hospital for the prenatal checkup tomorrow?” Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ asked, placing a hand on her stomach.
“The hospital is so close by and there’ll be tons of people at your service. It doesn’t make a difference whether I’m there or not.”
“But you’re the father of our child, it would make a difference.”
“I’ll try my best to free up my schedule tomorrow.”
Lin s.h.i.+s.h.i.+ bit her lip and exited the room slowly.
She was filled with misery and disappointment.
After going through a checkup, Jin Qingyue discovered that she’d been pregnant for a month and a half.
She had never taken any contraceptive measures previously because she was eager to conceive and carry on the Ling family bloodline.
Her wishes had finally come true.
She first informed Mr. and Mrs. Ling about the good news before telling her brother.
Everyone was elated about this news.
Mrs. Ling was extremely insistent on having Jin Qingyue move back to the Lin family home until she gives birth. However, Jin Qingyue was reluctant to live under the same roof as her in-laws, for that would bring about a great deal of inconvenience.
Majority of people would refrain from living with their in-laws since the close proximity was bound to lead to various conflicts and disharmony within the family.
Jin Qingyue would consider moving back if Mr. and Mrs. Ling were old, frail, and in need of care and a.s.sistance. However, they were in the pink of health and, hence, there was no need for her to do so.
Ling Ciye hired a cook to help out with preparing meals. He decided not to hire any bodyguards since Jin Qingyan lived nearby and he could seek help from the latter whenever necessary.
At the moment, only their closest kin and friends were aware of her pregnancy.
s.h.i.+ Shaochuan had not been bringing s.h.i.+ Bao’er to look for Jin Qingyue and cause her disturbance in a long while. However, Jin Qingyue was not planning to wash her hands off of s.h.i.+ Bao’er completely just because the rights to her custody were now with s.h.i.+ Shaochuan. After all, she was still her flesh and blood whom she had raised single-handedly. Hence, she can’t possibly hold a grudge against s.h.i.+ Bao’er, regardless of how insensible she may be.
She would call and talk on the phone with s.h.i.+ Bao’er on a regular basis, to which s.h.i.+ Shaochuan had no objections. However, he soon began to get annoyed and sick of raising his daughter all by himself.
The reason was that s.h.i.+ Bao’er would repeatedly tell him thrice every day not to marry another woman or give birth to another child.
How was that possible?
He was the last male heir of the s.h.i.+ family. Thus, if he still doesn’t find another woman to marry and give birth to a son, the s.h.i.+ family bloodline would cease to exist.
Although he was aware of his daughter’s insecurities, he did not plan to concede to her requests.
s.h.i.+ Bao’er gave him the daily reminder once more today. However, s.h.i.+ Shaochuan told her frankly that it was impossible.
s.h.i.+ Bao’er was so devastated and furious that she yelled at him and stated that she did not want to live with him anymore.
s.h.i.+ Shaochuan then said callously, “Your mommy has already found you a stepfather now and they’ll be giving birth to your younger brothers or sisters in the future. Why would she let you live with her?”
s.h.i.+ Bao’er began bawling loudly and pestered him to take her to look for Jin Qingyue.
s.h.i.+ Shaochuan showed up at Jin Qingyue’s place again with s.h.i.+ Bao’er.
However, this time, the guards on duty at Wei Ni Estate did not allow him to enter.
s.h.i.+ Shaochuan had no choice but to call Jin Qingyue.
“Bao’er said that she wants to live with you.”
“Why? Did you instigate her to do that?” Jin Qingyue asked apprehensively.
“Of course not. You’re already married, why can’t I get married too? I’m planning to look for a new wife, but Bao’er has been throwing a tantrum and demanding to see you so I brought her here,” s.h.i.+ Shaochuan explained.
“s.h.i.+ Shaochuan, what do you mean? I’ve already given you her custody and yet you brought her back to me. What are you trying to do?” Jin Qingyue scoffed.
