Chapter 2159: What if she did conceive your child?

He arched a brow and coolly replied with a question. “What thoughts could I possibly have about her?”
His nonchalance got the woman all riled up, and she pummeled his chest once more. “I’m asking you a question here! Can’t you answer it properly?”
The thick-skinned man pressed on. “What sort of an answer do you want from me?”
Feeling infuriated, she crossed her arms before her chest and looked away, no longer paying him any heed!
Mu Yazhe could not help chortling when he realized that his wife had truly gotten angry this time. In fact, he had deliberately angered her, just so he could appreciate her full display of jealousy. She did not know that he found her petulance adorable.
All along, this little fool had always been well-behaved and overly obedient in front of him, so much so that she was more like a virtuous big sister than a girlfriend or a wife to him.
The thing was that he wanted her to be like a beautiful yet delicate princess who was lofty, elegant, and mesmerizing, just like how stars would cluster around the moon.
Inwardly, women liked behaving a little willfully. It was many young ladies’ dream to throw a bit of tantrum, act slightly willful on their beloved men, and be treated preciously like the apple of their eyes.
This woman, however, had a severely insecure nature, which might have come from her past experiences.
Her fear of losing someone or something was perhaps so great that she rarely wore her jealousy—a wife’s basic instinct—on her face.
Many a time, she appeared to be wary and careful around him, never daring to be willful or unreasonable. Her fear of him getting angry even showed on her face at times.
Her cautious behavior around him left him feeling immensely troubled and pained for her.
He did not want her to be tiptoeing around him.
As compared to being obedient and docile, he preferred and very much hoped that his wife could behave more unreasonably and arrogantly as well as be more reliant on him. It did not matter even if she really behaved like those noble princesses!
It was not like he could not afford to dote on her.
The best way a man could show his love for his woman was to pamper and dote on her like a princess forever.
He pulled her into a hug once more, but it was clear that she did not want to pay him any heed, for she snorted and struggled out of his embrace. The dark look on her face indicated that she was still smoldering in anger.
He broke into a chuckle out of amusement at the sight.
“My little fool is so cute even when she’s jealous.”
Yun Shishi shot back at him curtly. “Who says that I’m jealous?!”
The man was even more torn between tears and laughter. “What do you think? Every expression and look of yours is telling me that you’re jealous.”
She shot him a look, only to see his teasing smile. Her face, as though it had been drenched with molten metal, turned scalding hot and a furious blush appeared across her cheeks. Nevertheless, she stubbornly mumbled, “No way! How can I be jealous… That’s just ridiculous…”
“Calm down and don’t let your mind run wild about the relationship I have with Enya.”
That one sentence, however, got him receiving a glare from the woman. Her eyes narrowed as she gritted through clenched teeth, “Enya? What an intimate form of address!”
“Cough! That woman…”
He quickly corrected himself, and only then did his wife’s stern look ease up a little.
The lingering fear in her prompted her to mutter, “Actually, I’ve been wondering since earlier… what would you do if your plan failed?”
A frown formed on his face. He did not quite understand what she meant by ‘if his plan failed.’
