"He went looking for you?"
The man knitted his brows.
"Did you do those things?" she asked tentatively.
He did not speak. Getting what she meant, he neither denied nor acknowledged it.
The swing gradually came to a stop.
Standing behind her, he was so silent that not a sound was heard.
She said, "Let the Du family off."
He seized her jaw as his gaze turned cold slightly. His voice was soft and frosty when he spoke.
"Why? Does your heart ache for him?"
"No! Why would my heart ache for him?"
She broke into a smile. "I only think that, if this is a punishment, it's harsh enough. We don't have to drive them to such an end, do we?"
He snorted. "Hmph! This stupid woman is so kind! Are you forgiving him just like that?"
"I may have forgiven him, but I didn't say that I'll forgive Huang Lili! I won't intervene with what you do to her, but the Du family is innocent, after all," she said sincerely.
Looking at her clear and charming eyes, he suddenly dipped his head to seal her little, red lips tightly. With his deep voice, he agreed, "Alright! I promise you that I'll let him off!"
As he pecked her on the lips, he added. "But I'm not letting that woman off!"
She pursed her lips and said nothing.
She would not forgive that woman, too!
After all, Huang Lili was truly abominable. She was not gracious enough to forgive someone who would harm her in such an unbridled manner!
Youyou was done cooking dinner; he specially prepared braised pork belly for tonight.
However, when she sat at the table, she felt nauseous at the sight and smell of this plate of greasy meat.
She tried hard to endure it, but her face showed discomfort.
"Mommy, I've specially prepared your favorite braised pork belly." He gently smiled at her in consideration.
She nodded. Holding up the chopsticks, she picked a piece of pork belly and delivered it into her mouth as she endured her nausea. The fresh and tender meat juice flowed into her mouth cavity when she bit into it, but the nausea was getting more and more intense.
Her shoulders shuddered involuntarily, and she could not help but spit the meat aside.
The lad frowned. "Mommy, what's wrong?"
Mommy loved his braised pork belly; why did she seem weird today?
Was there an aberration in his cooking, resulting in the food to taste bad?
He did not believe it, so he picked a piece to taste for himself; it was fresh, fragrant, and delicious, though.
Why did his mother spit out the meat, then?
He suddenly felt hurt at her action.
Seeing his hurt look, she promptly said, "Youyou, the food is delicious."
"I don't have much of an appetite today."
He spoke. "Yes, I don't know why, but mommy's appetite is really bad recently; that's why I prepared braised pork belly to make up for it."
Afraid that he would be hurt by this, she picked up the meat in the bowl. Alas, upon seeing the luster of the braised pork belly, she was unable to put it in her mouth. She knew of how delicious it tasted, but just the thought of it alone made her tremble. Covering her mouth, she ran into the bathroom and vomited in the toilet bowl.
Mu Yazhe's gaze changed when he saw her disheveled appearance in the bathroom. "What's wrong?"
"…" Before she could answer him, she retched for quite a while again.
The man suddenly realized that her symptoms seemed to suggest that she was pregnant!
The two kids ran over worriedly. Youyou was especially tensed at the sight of his mommy retching; his little hands tugged at the hem of his clothes as he worried needlessly.
"Mommy, what's wrong?"
