Chapter 2157: She is not expecting my child.

His heart was filled with warmth when he heard his wife’s answer, and using a sickeningly gentle tone, he inquired. “What explanation do you want me to offer, then?”
That stern look on her face did not fade. Instead, she pouted in displeasure and insisted on getting an explanation from him. “She couldn’t possibly get pregnant on her own, could she? Are you telling me that she’s conceived a ghost child?”
He suddenly pulled her into his arms.
The woman put up a fierce struggle at first, pushing and pummeling his chest with her little fists, but it was all to no avail. Her punches were no more than tickles to him, and he easily restrained her by stretching his hand. Sensing that she was about to fly into a rage, he said, “That child in her stomach isn’t mine.”
Her eyes bulged wide open in astonishment.
He broke into laughter. “You heard it loud and clear.”
“How’s that possible? If not yours, then whose?”
It’s a pity that I burned that DNA-test result out of anger earlier. If not, I could bring it back, throw it at his face, and confront him with it!
“In the report she showed you, was there a line, before the confirmation of the biological relation between the provided samples, stating ‘excluding circumstances surrounding multiple births, blood relations, and outside interferences’?”
Yun Shishi racked her brains hard to recall what she had read earlier, and it suddenly occurred to her that there was indeed such a line in that report.
Her husband chortled at the sight of her ruminating. “Do you recall it now?”
“The fact that you read up to that part just proves you aren’t so foolish,” teased the man, only to have his hand be slapped away by his wife.
“What about it? What does it mean?”
Mu Yazhe coolly explained, “In other words, even if she’s impregnated by someone else from my family, the DNA-test report will show that the child and I are biologically related.”
She was flabbergasted.
“Are you saying that…”
The man flicked her forehead hard, then snorted. “What a fool! Only now you go silent, huh? From your earlier behavior, you looked like a rampant kitten!”
In just a few words, he got his wife all coaxed and appeased.
Once she had calmed down, he proceeded to explain the matter in its entirety to her.
While his wife was still in Sea City and those few days after Song Enya had mysteriously disappeared from the hospital, the man got hold of his niece’s whereabouts.
From the result of the investigation, he learned that the madwoman had thought of conceiving his child through artificial insemination to blackmail him into marrying her by threatening him with it.
The Mus had a private sperm bank, which mostly stored specimens from their male descendants. His niece had bribed someone from the senior management to sneak out his sperms. She then went to a hospital in the US and, after nursing herself back to health, went through a nerve-racking period of IVF treatment, which turned out to be a success.
Unfortunately for the young missy, he had caught wind of her plan at an earlier date and had tasked someone to swap his sperms with Mu Yancheng’s. Not only that; he even destroyed his remaining specimens stored in the sperm bank, lest a repeat of this incident should happen!
It was customary for the Mu family to preserve their genes, actually, but he had always been against it. As such, on his eighteenth birthday, he flatly rejected his uncle’s suggestion of him preserving his sperms, claiming that he needed no such thing.
