Chapter 382 – Yes, but make sure you annoy me for life (3)
Pleased, Ye Zhen closed her eyes, only to open them again after 5 seconds. Looking at Lu Beichuan who was still looking at her, she asked, “You’re really going to stay here with me?”
Lu Beichuan held her hand tight. “Mmmm. Here guarding you.”
It was only by holding Ye Zhen’s hand that he would be able to feel comforted for his two hours of worries when Ye Zhen was inside of the operating room.
Looking deeply into Lu Beichuan’s eyes, Ye Zhen started to feel tired and finally fell asleep with Lu Beichuan next to her.
At that very moment, she felt the kind of happiness and warmth that she had never felt before.
Her lover, her children, and her family were all around her. Everyone that she loved the most were there and everyone who loved her the most. Her life was completed, and she felt that she was the luckiest person on earth.
As soon as the news of the twins had been announced, visitors came nonstop. Nevertheless, knowing that one who had just given birth would require a lot of rest, all of the visitors dropped off their gifts and left subtly.
A mother who has had a cesarean section needed a lot of rest. Ye Zhen finally started feeling better after a week. She was still told to stay in bed, but at least she started feeling better.
“Beichuan, quickly! Turn on the TV!”
Lu Beichuan walked in from the outside, carrying a plate of fruits with him in his wet hands. He turned on the television and handed the remote over to Ye Zhen.
Ye Zhen changed a channel and saw Meng Jie on television walking slowly up onto the stage in a glamorous dress under applause and watchful eyes.
Displayed on the screen behind the stage was “Best Female Lead”.
Meng Jie was smiling lightly, and she managed her look to the best. The presenter handed the trophy over to her. Taking the microphone gracefully from the presenter, she smiled, and said, “I am able to stand here today because…”
She thanked her old self, the production team, her friends and family, Ye Zhen, and many others.
Meng Jie talked for a long time on that stage. So much that she started breaking down and tears rolled down her cheeks. Her voice cracked.
Ye Zhen, leaning against Lu Beichuan’s shoulder, smiled at the glorious Meng Jie on the stage and said, “100%.”
Ye Zhen shook her head. “Nothing.”
“Do you feel regretful?”
“Of course,” said Ye Zhen as she watched the others step onto the stage and accept their trophies one by one. There were best pictures, best director, best male lead, best female supporting character. All of them went to Qinhuai’s Riverbank.
“I should have been there.”
Lu Beichuan gave her a tender kiss. “Next time. I’ll go there with you.”
Ye Zhen returned his kiss. “Okay. You promised.”
The arrival of an unexpected guest interrupted the mushiness between the two.
This “unexpected guest” was a lawyer hired by Lu Shaoyan.
The lawyer first congratulated Lu Beichuan and Ye Zhen on their newborns before he laid out the documents that he had brought with him. “Mr. and Mrs. Lu, my surname is Huang. I am asked by Mr. Lu Shaoyan to deliver these presents for your children.”
Ye Zhen gave Lu Beichuan a look.
What was Lu Shaoyan up to this time?
“Well, I was here today because,” said Lawyer Huang as he opened up his file folder with shaking hands, apparently being very emotional. He was even stuttering as he talked, “Mr. Lu Shaoyan came to my com… my com…”
“Pardon me, Lawyer Huang, how long have you been a lawyer?”
“I… I… have just graduated.” Lawyer Huang smiled and said, “Truth be told, I was quite surprised myself that Mr. Lu Shaoyan had me handle such a large asset…”
Lu Beichuan’s face dropped. He no longer wished to allow this half-@$$ed lawyer to waste Ye Zhen’s resting time. “Alright, just cut to the chase already.”
“Okay, I’ll cut to the chase. Mr. Lu Shaoyan wished to hand over all the real estate listed under his name over to Lu Zhifei and the newborn twins. All of the details are listed in these documents. You can take your time and review them, Mr. Lu,” said Lawyer Huang as he pulled out another big stack of documents. “These are all of the supporting documents for those real estates. Don’t worry, Mr. Lu, our firm has combed through all of them and they are all authentic!”
“... and where is Lu Shaoyan?”
“My client said he is going to travel the world and asked me to deliver a message to Mr. Lu.”
“What is the message?”
Lawyer Huang cleared his throat, lowered his voice, and said, “Beichuan, I am handing the heavy Lu Corporation’s baton over to you to take care of. Don’t worry, there won’t be any more Lu Shaoyan fighting you over the inheritance anymore.”
“...” Where did Lu Shaoyan find this tool from?
Noticing that nobody had said anything, Lawyer Huang smiled and said, “Okay, I’ve passed on the message. I am taking off if there is nothing else.” He fished out a business card and handed it over to Lu Beichuan. “This is my business card. Please feel free to give me a call if I can help you with anything, Mr. Lu.”
Lu Beichuan took the business card. It was a law firm that he had never heard of.
Lawyer Huang left with a smile.
Looking at the stack of papers on the floor, Ye Zhen smiled helplessly and said, “What is Lu Shaoyan up to now?”
Lu Beichuan tossed the business card casually onto the table and said, “I’ll take care of those. You just get your rest.”
Ye Zhen nodded and laid back down to get some more sleep.
Ye Zhen had no idea what Lu Beichuan had done with the piles of paperwork. All of them were gone when she woke up, but she didn’t ask any questions.
Ye Zhen was finally discharged from the hospital almost a month later.
The day that Ye Zhen was discharged, Lu Beichuan had her in his arms, the two nannies had carried the two tightly swaddled babies with them, and they returned to Lu’s residence in a very low key manner.
When they got inside the car, Lu Beichuan kissed Ye Zhen on her forehead and said to her softly, “We won’t be here ever again.”
For the rest of our lives, all I need is you.
T/N: I’m glad that Lu Shaoyan took the high road and didn’t take out his grievances on the next generation.
Please give our newest translation, A Fake Holy Mother in the Zombie Apocalypse, a try. Despite the apocalypse setting, it’s a light-hearted novel where they have time to eat hot pot on a dining table out in the middle of nowhere. I like how the main character and male lead take turns teasing each other and they’re comfortable with casual physical intimacy.
Short Summary: Bei Nuan found herself in an apocalypse novel that didn’t have a romantic pairing and became the holy mother female supporting character that specialized in being a drag to the team. In the end, she sacrificed the team to save a city of people and was cursed out by the readers.
Bei Nuan: I know the male protagonist and the plot. I’ll definitely be good at playing the female support character’s second chance. 𝒻𝑟ℯℯ𝑤ℯ𝒷𝘯ℴ𝓋ℯ𝑙.𝒸ℴ𝓂
There was a ding in her head. The task of the Holy Mother has begun. Play the role of a holy mother in front of the male protagonist. You can leave this world when you get to 100%.
Bei Nuan: “…”
[Although I do good things every day, I’m really not a good person.]
