A knife twisted in his heart. "You've just had a surgery; don't be so emotional and stop crying anymore!"
Seeing the distress and helplessness on his face, Yan Bingqing was more certain that he was her only hope now.
Hence, she schooled her face into a grievous look and cried, "Brother Yang, I didn't know that I was pregnant; if I knew, I would be extremely careful, but… What to do? The child is lost. Brother Yang, our child is gone! Woo… woo… woo… If not for that miscarriage, I would surely leave the show industry to give birth and raise this child. I heard from the doctor that the child had already taken shape, and it's a boy…"
She wept sorrowfully. Her beautiful yet pallid face was pale. Her words shot straight to his heart.
Yang Shoucheng could not bear to see her miserable look. He enveloped her in his embrace and gently caressed her back with his rough hands.
The moment he heard that she wanted to give birth, raise his child, even unhesitatingly leave the entertainment industry for his sake, he was even more touched.
His heart ached for her to the core.
Standing at the side, although his face was expressionless, Mo Yan was scoffing in his heart.
Sometimes, humans were really very strange creatures.
Yan Bingqing, in particular, could not fake any emotion when she acted, but at this time, her acting was on point.
She said that she would leave the entertainment industry to give birth to the old man's child.
Was that possible?
She valued fame and fortune a lot. If not for her despondent state, she would probably have the child secretly aborted.
Besides, did the child really belong to this old man just like she claimed it to be?
Only this old man would believe it due to his unconditional love and trust for her!
She merely said words that he liked to hear, pinning her last hope on him.
Still, only she could do such a thing and fool this old man with a game of make-believe.
Yang Shoucheng asked with concern, "I was in Hongkong these past few days and only got back to the mainland. I heard that you had offended Huanyu's top management and got banned. I was unable to reach you; what exactly happened to you?"
"Brother Yang, I… I'm feeling very bitter…" She broke down in tears.
Seeing how she cried so miserably, he hurriedly asked her about it, and she weaved lies and spun the truth.
She recounted the entire story to him.
She said that during the filming of one of the scenes on set, she was not in top condition and could not get into character. That one scene was shot several times, so she inadvertently slapped a newbie for over ten times. In these few takes, she failed to control the strength of her hand and slapped too heavily. In the end, the newbie surprisingly had the backing of Disheng's crown prince, Mu Yazhe.
She offended the man and was vanquished from the entertainment industry under his order.
"Never mind about the order to ban me as I'm already down and under, but that Yun Shishi refuses to let me off at all. She actually… got people to find trouble with me and slap me back sixteen times!"
He was appalled at this as she continued to speak. "I repeatedly begged for mercy and told them that I am pregnant. At this rate, I'd surely have a miscarriage, but they refused to listen… They still punched and kicked me; I… That's why I miscarried…"
