What was he to her?
Was his love for her all along unreciprocated?
Perhaps this woman whom he cared for deeply was simply taking advantage of his feelings from the start?
When she saw his dumbfounded look, the smile on her face imperceptibly stiffened. She then asked, "Aaron, aren't you happy for me?"
"Hm?" He stared straight at her but did not respond.
She supported her abdomen with her hands as the corner of her lips flew up to form a bright smile. Positively beaming with joy, she exclaimed, "I'm able to get pregnant! I'm not infertile! I can bear a child for Mu Yazhe, and the child may become the future successor of the Mus! Isn't that something to be happy about?"
His eyes slowly hung low and became a little obscured. He grabbed her shoulders firmly just as a bitter arch came to his lips. "I'm truly happy that you can get pregnant!"
"Mm!" Her lips flipped into a grin and her delicate orbs seemed to glisten with tears.
However, his next words distracted her on the spot and made her seem as if she had been struck by lightning. "Still, haven't you considered whose child is that in your tummy right now? Wanrou, it's our child – not yours and Mu Yazhe's! Will you give birth to it?"
Her entire body instantly turned into stone, and she was quickly caught in a daze!
Watching her expression harden, his heart ached and his orbs turned cloudy. He gently squatted beside her and pulled her into his arms gingerly. "Wanrou, if you truly are pregnant, then this child is ours. I'm willing to acknowledge it and be accountable to you! I sincerely wish for you to not abort it! What about you? Are you willing to give birth to it?"
Something changed in her eyes, and she subconsciously clenched her fists tightly. Thereafter, she revealed an apathetic gaze!
He wanted her to keep this child?!
How could she possibly do that?!
Indeed, how could she have forgotten?! She was pregnant, but whose child was it? The child was not Mu Yazhe's – it was Aaron's!
This life took form from infidelity. A b*stard. How could she give birth to it?
If the Mus learned of her conceiving a child that was not Mu Yazhe's, knowing the latter, he would surely and personally expel her out of the family! Would it matter if she had Grandpa Mu's love then?
In the world of the rich, it was a taboo for a woman to be unfaithful to her partner.
This was undoubtedly a huge scandal!
The Mus would definitely not let her off if they gained knowledge of this matter!
At this point, her initial joy had ebbed away, her complexion had turned wan, and cold sweat bubbled frighteningly on her forehead.
"This child can't be kept…"
"WHY?!" Aaron's eyes nearly popped out in disbelief. He firmly grasped her body and forced her to face him. He questioned her in his distress. "This child is of your flesh and blood. It is your first child. Are you that cruel to abort it?!"
"What can I do?! WHAT?!" She grappled his front shirt tightly and retorted with an ashen face, "Do I keep this b*stard, then?! Aaron, we are having an affair! This child is the result of our infidelity! Don't forget; I'm Mu Yazhe's fiancée, the Mu's young mistress to-be. I'm about to become Young Madam Mu. How can I keep the child I had with you? Are you dreaming?!"
He was seriously stumped for a moment, and his expression turned sour. Her cruel words agitated him greatly!
