Paternity testing was not something that could be done when he wished!
Even if he insisted, the old man would surely disagree.
This was because amniotic fluid puncture could only be performed under the right condition. There would be a danger of miscarriage if it was performed too early into the pregnancy.
It was usually performed after the first trimester.
As the continuation of this family's bloodline was very important to the old man, he would naturally disagree to this test.
With him around, she would be safe for the next two months at least. This meant that she would have a window of two months to strategize.
Two months later, she would have her way to have a 'natural miscarriage'.
As long as she moved swifter than Mu Yazhe, he would have no way to prove that the child was not his.
If everything went according to plan, all her worries would be resolved.
The man standing at the highest step of this flight of stairs cast his eyes on the fiasco below before he made his stand coldly. "That thing in her womb is no child of mine. Why don't we do a paternity test to unveil the truth?"
She looked up and replied indignantly, "All right! I'll do it! If a paternity test is what you want, I'll follow your wishes! This will prove my innocence, too!"
She looked squarely in his eyes without any shame and fear. To a certain degree, she was challenging him!
He was holding a penetrating look when Mu Sheng cut in sternly, "No way!"
His third wife had done the same test before; hence, he knew very well the danger that the fetus might face with this procedure. It could easily cause a miscarriage.
He got up with a start and severely reprimanded, "This is ridiculous! How will the fetus survive if this test is carried out now?! Are you crazy?"
"Grandpa, I'll be fine! Since he wants to confirm if the child belongs to him, then I'll do the procedure. Anyway, I'm innocent!" she insisted.
The elderly man said wistfully, "Stupid Wanrou, you don't understand. This is your first pregnancy, so you don't know the procedure. You won't be able to keep the child if you do the testing now!"
Looking like the wronged party, she muttered with pretentious grievance, "Let there be a miscarriage, then! He doesn't want to acknowledge this child, anyway. If the child finds out of the father denying its existence, the child will be heartbroken."
"Ignore him! Regardless, grandpa won't let you go through such a dangerous procedure! You just look after the baby in your womb and don't worry about the rest!" The old man immediately consoled her.
She wiped away the tears from the corner of her eyes. Keeping her head bowed, she revealed an eerie smile at Mu Sheng's blind spot.
Her creepy smile could not escape past Mu Yazhe's eyes, though.
An idea seemed to strike the man suddenly as he furrowed his brows and arched his thin lips into a sardonic smile.
He seemed to figure out who the father of the child was!
He had to give credit to this woman who had this all planned out; she must be trying to buy time.
After three months, she would quietly stage a 'natural miscarriage', no?
She was too naïve if she really thought that that would work.
He was already prepared for such a scenario.
Six years ago, after they got engaged, his grandfather hurried them to get married. The old man did not want to procrastinate the wedding as he wanted to have grandchildren soon.
However, this woman was just a stepping stone for him to get the Mu family's inheritance.
