Chapter 894: You’re So Silly
Sheng Xiao did not answer because deep down in his heart he knew that he could not live without Mu Qiqi.
If his soul were to be taken away, would there still be any meaning in living?
“Don’t worry. Whether we live or die, we’ll be together.”
Mu Qiqi seemed to understand the meaning behind Sheng Xiao’s words and said, “I’m very selfish toward you. I don’t want another woman to appear by your side. You’re mine alone.”
“And you’re mine.” Sheng Xiao looked at Mu Qiqi as he said those words seriously.
“Then I’ll go and meet Qianqian tomorrow. I don’t want to wait until things get out of hand,” Mu Qiqi said firmly to Sheng Xiao.
Sheng Xiao did not say anything. He carried her to their bathroom and the two of them lay naked in the bathtub. Sheng Xiao subconsciously touched Mu Qiqi’s lower abdomen.
“It’s still too early to start showing your affection.”
Sheng Xiao still touched her gently. He secretly got emotional and felt very strongly about the fact that his offspring was right there, right now. This was his child, the result of the two of them.
Mu Qiqi gradually fell asleep under his gentle touch…
The next morning, Mu Qiqi did not go to the Jianchuan branch office. Instead, she asked Xu Che to send her to the Lu family’s home.
Lu Qianqian was just about to go out when she saw Mu Qiqi. She was surprised. “Why are you here? It’s so early in the morning.”
“Can’t I come to see the bride-to-be? You’re going to work already? Can you spare me half an hour? I have something to tell you,” Mu Qiqi said as she held her hand.
“Don’t say half an hour. I can give you the whole day, pregnant lady.” After saying that, Lu Qianqian pulled Mu Qiqi toward the Lu family’s living room.
When Mama Lu saw Mu Qiqi, she panicked. She knew how happy her daughter had been during this period of time. What if Mu Qiqi was bringing bad news?
Lu Qianqian saw that the two of them were looking at each other as if there was a secret, so she smiled. “Mommy, am I not your biological daughter? Is it actually Qiqi?”
“Auntie, please join us,” Mu Qiqi said to Mama Lu after she sat down on the sofa.
The three of them sat down in the living room. Mu Qiqi’s expression also surprised Lu Qianqian. “Why do you look like that? What’s wrong?”
“Qianqian, I’m here to hurt you today.” Mu Qiqi held Lu Qianqian’s hand. “Although I don’t know if this is the right thing to do, I don’t want to deceive you and risk our friendship.”
“What’s the matter? Tell me first,” Lu Qianqian said anxiously.
“Old Master Lin thinks that you and Song Bozhi have a relationship…”
Mu Qiqi told Lu Qianqian the whole story while Lu Qianqian was still in shock. “We only found out yesterday that Song Bozhi was the culprit. He targeted you because he wanted to attack me. I’m the one who implicated you and Lin Mu’an.”
Lu Qianqian lowered her head and thought for a while before she realized that she had been misunderstood by Old Master Lin.
Mama Lu now understood the reason behind Old Master Lin’s reaction after he heard about the wedding date.
“I couldn’t sleep last night. I feel so bad and afraid that I’ve implicated the both of you, so I came here today to tell you about it. I hope that you can be mentally prepared. We will definitely retaliate against Song Bozhi and I will definitely clarify things with Old Master Lin. However, I feel very sorry for letting you suffer such injustice.”
When Lu Qianqian heard this, she suddenly smiled and said to Mu Qiqi, “His grandfather didn’t trust me in the first place. Even if it wasn’t because of Song Bozhi’s interference, he might suspect me in the future because of other things. Xiao Qiqi, this has nothing to do with you.”
“Although I really hope to get his grandfather’s approval and support, Lin Mu’an and I won’t be happy if we force ourselves. In fact, I have to thank you for letting me know his grandfather’s true thoughts.
“Let that Song guy try whatever he wants to. As long as Lin Mu’an trusts me and I him, it doesn’t matter. He must look down on me if he thinks that he can sow discord between us.
“You and Sheng Xiao helped us a lot when my father passed away. Even now, Zhongteng is supporting the Lu family. I don’t want to be selfish, so Xiao Qi, you don’t have to be afraid.”
“I didn’t do anything, so I don’t have to be afraid.”
At first, Mama Lu was worried that Lu Qianqian would break down when she found out about the matter. But after hearing what she said, Mama Lu was relieved.
“Qianqian, you’ve really grown up.”
“It’s nothing. I can still wait,” Lu Qianqian said frankly. “So, Xiao Qi, you really don’t have to worry about facing that scumbag head-on.”
Mu Qiqi sighed and hugged Lu Qianqian tightly. “The last thing I want is to see the people close to me get hurt. Qianqian, you’re so kind.”
“Are you stupid? How have we been so close for so many years?”
Lu Qianqian smiled. “Actually, you could have just told me about this over the phone. You didn’t have to come all the way here. It’s really unnecessary. Don’t tire the baby in your stomach.”
“If I didn’t tell you in person, I wouldn’t be able to sleep and eat in peace.”
“You’re so silly.”
After Lu Qianqian finished “scolding” Mu Qiqi, she took another call. Then, she said to Mu Qiqi, “Let’s go. I’ll send you back. The Lu Corporation has an important meeting. Your place is on the way.”
Mu Qiqi didn’t expect Lu Qianqian to be so magnanimous. She had no intention of blaming her at all. However, just because others didn’t blame her didn’t mean that she wasn’t wrong.
Song Bozhi, that scumbag. It was fine if he targeted her, but if he so much as touched a hair on the people around her…
He would definitely regret hurting Qianqian today.
Soon, Lu Qianqian sent Mu Qiqi back to the Banyan Courtyard and subsequently went straight to the Lu Corporation. After the meeting, she called Lin Mu’an at noon.
“Scumbag, what do you think of… canceling our engagement?”
Lin Mu’an was stunned. “Why do you say that? Did something say something?”
“You do know that I didn’t do anything and I don’t want to break up with you. Don’t be nervous. I just feel that since your grandfather hasn’t really accepted me, I can continue to wait. Otherwise, even if the engagement ceremony gets held, I wouldn’t receive the blessings I deserved,” Lu Qianqian said seriously.
“In the morning, Qiqi came to apologize to me, with her belly already starting to puff out, saying that she had implicated me. I know that she would rather be injured than have people around her feel sad. I can’t let her feel sad too, can I? So, I’ve decided to cancel the engagement and wait for your grandfather to completely accept me. What do you think?”
It was all Song Bozhi’s doing. However, this was also a true reflection of how weak Old Master Lin’s trust in Lu Qianqian was.
In fact, they understood.
Even if it wasn’t for Song Bozhi, Old Master Lin could still be affected by other things and make things difficult for Qianqian in the future.
“Mu’an, I’m not willing to make do and accept things like this, nor do I want to be muddle-headed.”
