What if… she was indeed pregnant?
This might be a private hospital, but since it was located within the capital, the Mu family could trace any bit of medical records saved here.
What if she was truly pregnant?
This piece of news would be known to the Mu family within two days.
He remembered that not once did Mu Wanrou and Mu Yazhe have any form of intimate contact.
However, if news of her being pregnant got out…
She would surely retaliate to him.
Temporarily setting aside whether she could get pregnant or not, even if she were to expect a baby, the little life in her womb would not be allowed to exist.
If the tests proved that she was truly pregnant, then…
Bearing a baby out of wedlock was undoubtedly a huge scandal to the rich. Besides, the child was not Mu Yazhe's.
Thinking about it carefully, it was not impossible for her not to get pregnant.
He was somewhat unrestrained when he did it with her, generally because she was guaranteed to be infertile. He did not even think of using protection, so it was absolutely possible for her to conceive.
Aaron stood up and said, "I'll inform her family for them to make a decision. Let me send her home for today!"
The doctor blankly raised his eyes and left him with an 'oh' as response. He deemed this man's behavior to be too odd, yet he did not give him further thought. He simply cautioned him about certain things and then freely let him settle the medical fee.
Mu Wanrou regained consciousness as Aaron carried her into the vehicle.
He became jittery once he realized that she was awake. "You are up?"
"Where is this place?" Feeling a splitting headache, she massaged between her brows with her fingers. She looked around her and spotted the hospital signage in perplexity. "Why are we at the hospital?"
"You fainted earlier. I was worried, so I brought you to the hospital!" He stopped mid-speech and did not continue further. He was still considering if he should inform her of the news.
Currently, it was unconfirmed if she was really pregnant.
She did not know what was on his mind but did not bother inquiring after it, for she suddenly recalled what had happened before she blanked out. Remembering Yun Shishi yelling out her accusation at her, her heart stopped beating for a moment. She bit the tip of her thumbnail uneasily; her heart and soul were flustered.
Did she notice?
Did the past come to her mind?
How much did she know?
Did she merely remember that she had stolen her jade, or did she know of what owning the jade signified?!
Noting her anxiety, the doctor's words came to his mind, and he decided to come clean with her. "Wanrou?"
"What's the matter? Speak!" She treated him rudely as she was still frustrated.
Aaron faltered for a few seconds before he asked her gingerly. "Can you tell me about your infertility diagnosis?"
She was startled at his sudden mention of this. Thereafter, a dull pain grew in her chest, and she asked with annoyance, "Why are you asking about this all of a sudden?"
Infertility was, all along, something she could not reconcile with.
If she could bear a baby, perhaps she would have been married to Mu Yazhe long ago.
It was precisely because she was unable to do so that her position in the Mu family was this unstable.
Since ancient times, deep within the world of the rich, the mother had always risen in status because of her child.
If she had no children, she had no status whatsoever.
This was exactly her disadvantage; being unable to bear a child for Mu Yazhe, her position within the family was naturally unable to be stabilized.
She was indignant and heartbroken at the same time. She gritted her teeth and cried, "If it weren't for my infertility, I would probably have been married to him long ago!"
