"How are you? Are you eating well? Did you experience morning sickness?" Interest shone in Cathy's eyes.
"I don't think I will experience such things," Lily answered. "Actually, I like to drink milk teas. Aside from that… I didn't have any cravings or any peculiar changes." A smile dangled on Lily's lips. "However, I don't think I am the right person that you should ask when it comes to my changes. It should be Jingren."
"Did you already think of a name? Do you think it will be a girl?"
Lily laughed before she answered Cathy's questions. The conversation instantly turned lighter. Cathy's eyes seemed to sparkle as they talked about child care and stuff that she needed to before giving birth.
"Switzerland is a wonderful place to give birth. Staying there for a few months is only right. You and Jingren should have this time to bond with your child." Cathy noted.
Lily smiled in response. Just thinking about their child is making her heart flutter. After a few more minutes, Cathy bid her goodbye. Her flight back to London is already scheduled in the afternoon. And before that, Cathy will also meet with Qin Yuanfeng as the latter is coming with her to London.
This should be Qin Yuanfeng's first time traveling to London for business matters. This will also be the first time that Qin Yuanfeng will visit Lilian's mansion. Originally, Lily wanted to take her brother to the mansion herself. However, because of her pregnancy, she refused to travel for now.
"Madam…. Here is President Zhou's schedule for the rest of the week." Lily turned towards Secretary Go.
"What time is it?" she asked.
"Almost nine in the morning. We are about to leave for the office." Secretary Go stated. She eyed the various type of bread next to Lily as he wondered how come Lily is not really gaining weight despite eating a lot of stuff every day. A silly idea instantly came into Secretary Go's mind as his eyes landed on Lily's stomach.
Was it possible that the child absorbed all the food?
But…. That seems impossible, no?
"Why are you staring at me like that?" Lily's question brought him back from his stupor.
"I — " he avoided her gaze. "I was only thinking about the gender of um- I don't want to sound intrusive or anything. Please forgive me."
Lily responded with a chuckle. She then waved her hand dismissively before her gaze landed on her gorgeous man walking towards her. She smiled.
"I will leave now. I will see you for lunch?" Zhou Jingren leaned closer to kiss her. In response, she lifted her chin, kissing him.
"Hmm. I will see you later." Lily smiled. She then watched as Zhou Jingren and Secretary Go left her on the terrace of the mansion. She closed her eyes and lifted her head towards the cloudless sky. After a few minutes, Lily went inside to have a long bath.
Today, she was planning to visit George before going to see Zhou Jingren in her office. The poisoned caused a lot of damage to George's body that it would take a few more weeks before he will fully recover. However, the thought that he is already awake is enough to make Lily happy.
"President… Adalind Brooke is here bringing gifts." Yang Mi interrupted Lily's thoughts.
"Did Jingren already left?" she asked. She was about to peel her clothes off her body for her relaxing bath. A flash on irritation glinted in her eyes. Who visits a house before nine in the morning?
"Yes. He left before Miss Brooke arrived."
"Good. Let her in." She said as she eyed her reflection. Because of the sun earlier, Lily's cheeks had turned scarlet, her usually pale skin had a tinge of a beautiful tan. She smiled.
The first thing that Adalind notice when she walked inside Lily and Zhou Jingren's mansion is the large photo made of small gems. It was Zhou Jingren and Lily at their wedding. She stared at the intricate artwork, appreciation apparent in her eyes.
As a model, Adalind had traveled around the world. She had seen a lot of beautiful artworks and she could not deny that this… this is one of the most beautiful things that she saw.
"Please take a seat. I will prepare some refreshments for you." A small maid uttered. She nodded in response. Eyeing the velvet couch, Adalind smiled. It seems that this house is not only beautiful and luxurious on the outside, she thought.
Her eyes went back to the artwork as she stared at Zhou Jingren for a few seconds. As someone already immune to beautiful faces, Adalind could say that Zhou Jingren's appeal is not on his features or his physique. It's the way that he held Lily in his arms.
It's how his eyes shone in that artwork. Zhou Jingren seem to be the type of man who loves his wife wholeheartedly. Adalind smiled inwardly.
Does that really exist? She mused.
In her experience, men are not as fickle as women. However, talking about a man's s.e.xual preference is different. A man could be loyal to his wife and their marriage life. But… being faithful is a different matter. She eyed the stairs next to the artwork and wondered if Zhou Jingren is still upstairs. It's too early for him to leave.
The thought of him stepping out of the shower, with nothing but a towel wrapped around his body made her grinned. Zhou Jingren seemed too perfect on the outside. The man was made to be enjoyed by women… like her.
Lily should not be too greedy. She should share her husband with other women, no?
She giggled at her own thoughts. A woman like Lily would never share her husband. However... Adalind believes that this is not Lily's decision at all. Can she really stop her husband from wanting another woman?
