Chapter 287: Fang Yusheng’s Mouth Is Poisonous
Fang Yusheng’s face darkened after hearing the old lady’s words.
He cast aside his respect for the elderly and directly said to the old lady. “Old lady, your grandson’s IQ is low not because of his mother’s cesarean section. It’s because your natural-born son’s IQ was low to begin with. We, husband and wife, have high IQs. The children we will have after surgery will have equally high IQs. There’s no need for you to worry. Also, your family is poor and doesn’t have money to eat milk powder. My family has…”
This left the old lady speechless.
Qiao Jiusheng wanted to laugh, but she was afraid that she would make the old lady faint from anger.
She tugged at Fang Yusheng’s hand and persuaded him. “Yusheng, stop talking.”
Fang Yusheng snorted and did not continue.
The old lady glared at Fang Yusheng for a long time. After realizing that he wasn’t as soft as her son, she turned around and left with the eggs. As she walked, she mumbled, “Young people nowadays can’t even suffer, unlike us…”
After watching the old lady enter a ward, Fang Yusheng retracted his gaze.
Lowering his head, he said to Qiao Jiusheng, “No wonder such words are popular in the matchmaking world now.”
Qiao Jiusheng asked, “Huh? What words?”
“The best matchmaking partner is someone with a car and a house, and both parents dead.”
Qiao Jiusheng fell silent.
Although this sounded very satisfying, it was not right.
“Not every parent is like this old lady.”
The two of them walked toward the elevator together. After a moment of silence, Qiao Jiusheng suddenly asked, “How did you know that?”
Last year, when Aunt Xu had brought him to many blind dates, Fang Yusheng had heard many of these words. However, he could not let Qiao Jiusheng know that he had gone on blind dates. Thus, he said, “Didn’t you say that you wanted to introduce someone to Bufan? I heard others say that.”
“In that case, Bufan fits those three points.” Qiao Jiusheng chuckled and gloated a little. “His parents have passed away, but he still has a daughter.” She felt that their assistant probably could not get a wife.
“By the way, I see that other people have come to the hospital carrying large and small bags. We haven’t bought anything for the delivery, have we?”
This was their first time being parents, so Fang Yusheng and Qiao Jiusheng did not know what to buy.
“Let’s go now.”
The two of them went straight to the mother and baby store. Fang Yusheng saw that the counter of the mother and baby store had a shopping list. He directly bought everything according to the list. There were too many things, and the mother and baby store’s salesperson took the initiative to promise that she would deliver everything to their doorstep.
Seeing their enthusiasm, Fang Yusheng realized that he had probably overspent.
Qiao Jiusheng saw his handsome face and knew what he was thinking. She could not help but find it funny.
The two of them went straight to the apartment near the hospital and bought yogurt and lemon outside the district. Fang Yusheng carried his things and went home with Qiao Jiusheng. Their house was on the 16th floor. When the two of them came out of the elevator, they saw a woman in a white down jacket standing in the corridor.
The tall and thin woman was leaning against the wall with a suitcase in her hand.
She had a hat on her, so Qiao Jiusheng did not recognize her immediately.
However, Fang Yusheng had sharp eyes. When he saw the woman, he blurted out, “Yinbing?”
That woman looked up at the sound, revealing a cold expression. Her appearance was not very exquisite, but she had a cold and beautiful face. Ji Yinbing was a person who did not like to smile. However, she still forced a smile. “An, and Ah Sheng.”
Ji Yinbing looked at the luggage and said, “I came uninvited. Am I welcome?”
Seeing that she had rushed over, Fang Yusheng had his doubts. But, he did not ask in front of Qiao Jiusheng.
Qiao Jiusheng returned to her senses very quickly and hurriedly said, “Of course, you’re welcome.”
Fang Yusheng took out his room card, opened the door, and invited her in.
Ji Yinbing dragged her luggage into the house. Qiao Jiusheng found her a pair of winter slippers to keep her warm. Ji Yinbing took off her shoes and put on the slippers. She followed the two of them into the living room. Fang Yusheng brought her to the guest room and helped her put her things away.
Qiao Jiusheng went to make coffee for her.
Fang Yusheng placed the box down and turned around. He saw Ji Yinbing looking out of the window. Her gaze was not so calm; it was more like one of despair. Fang Yusheng walked over and stood next to her. Both of them looked out of the window. As it was winter, some tree leaves had already fallen. The scenery was bleak.
Ji Yinbing looked at a bare tree branch, its tall and thin figure appearing lonely.
“Why are you here?” Fang Yusheng looked out of the window and didn’t even look at Ji Yinbing.
He didn’t want to see her dejected self.
Ji Yinbing wanted to laugh, but she was a person with an indifferent expression. The corners of her lips curled up. When she saw her reflection in the glass window, her smiling face was uglier than her crying one. Ji Yinbing decided not to smile anymore. Her eyes narrowed as she hid her sadness. Only then did she say, “He can find out if I stay in a hotel.”
As long as he wanted to, he could find her whereabouts in real-time.
Fang Yusheng knew that “he” was referring to Yan Nuo. Thinking back to what Suzanne had said last time, Fang Yusheng frowned and asked Ji Yinbing, “You guys split?”
Ji Yinbing shook her head. “I don’t know.”
“Then what are you two?”
Ji Yinbing seemed to take a deep breath. Fang Yusheng turned his head and saw her hugging her arm with both hands. This was an act of self-protection. Ji Yinbing was a person with a strong heart. Fang Yusheng had never seen her reveal such an expression.
He heard Ji Yinbing say. “It’s gone.”
Ji Yinbing’s hand landed on her lower abdomen. She said, “The child is gone.”
Fang Yusheng’s expression changed.
“What exactly is going on?” Fang Yusheng’s tone was icy cold.
Ji Yinbing bitterly smiled. “There was medicine in the water he personally handed to me.”
Fang Yusheng knew exactly what this medicine meant.
“Why is he like this!” Fang Yusheng was about to become a father; he could feel the pain in Ji Yinbing’s heart.
If Yan Nuo were here, Fang Yusheng would’ve beaten him to death.
Ji Yinbing couldn’t even smile bitterly anymore. Her hand was still on her abdomen as she sobbed and said, “I love him, An, I love him. He’s the person I trust the most. Even if it was a bottle of poison, I believed that the bottle contained vitamins. But he killed our child!”
When she sat on the plane, her abdomen had ached and her lower body bled; she knew it was because of the water.
“If he doesn’t love me, he could just tell me directly. Why did he have to kill our child so cruelly?” Ji Yinbing raised his head, wanting to hold back his tears. But the tears still flowed down her face, ears, and neck.
Fang Yusheng looked at her tears and his heart ached.
“Is there a misunderstanding?” Fang Yusheng didn’t believe that Yan Nuo would treat Ji Yinbing like this.
Since Yan Nuo had allowed Ji Yinbing to have a child, he would take responsibility. Although he was arrogant, his love for Ji Yinbing was sincere. Even if he was still tied up with his first love, he would never kill his child.
Fang Yusheng didn’t believe that Yan Nuo would do that.
But the truth was right in front of him.
“Are you sure it was the water?”
Ji Yinbing tearfully nodded.
“To verify my conjecture, I didn’t even go to the hospital once I arrived in America. I changed my clothes and boarded the plane back to India. When I returned, the glass of water had not been poured away yet. I took the water and went to do a test. In the end…” The result was a clear slap to Ji Yinbing’s face.
“I want to find him and ask if he wants to end things like that. If he agrees to it, then it’s over. I’m not such an unreasonable person.” Ji Yinbing seemed to have thought of something that made her heart ache, and her face turned pale. “But when I went to look for him, I saw a naked Weila lying on the bed we once laid on!”
Ji Yinbing thought of that heart-rending scene and broke down in tears.
She leaned against the wall and covered her face with her hands, sobbing uncontrollably.
Fang Yusheng slowly approached her. After a moment of silence, he reached out and pulled her into his embrace. “Yinbing, don’t be like this.” Fang Yusheng had never seen her so fragile before, and he felt extremely upset.
Ji Yinbing tightly held onto Fang Yusheng’s coat as if she were a drowning person suddenly grabbing onto a rope thrown from the shore.
She used so much strength that her fingers turned white and she trembled.
Qiao Jiusheng stood outside the guest room and silently watched this scene. Her heart was also in pain. She was about to give birth, so she could understand Ji Yinbing’s pain.
She silently left the room and poured out the coffee. After some thought, she took out some brown sugar and red dates from the cabinet and made a pot of hot brown sugar water for Ji Yinbing.
When Ji Yinbing and Fang Yusheng walked out together, they seemed to have calmed down.
If Ji Yinbing’s eyes were not so red, Qiao Jiusheng would not be able to tell that she was sad.?How did such a strong woman end up in such a situation??Qiao Jiusheng used a thermal flask to store brown sugar water and handed it to Ji Yinbing, who was nestled on the sofa in silence.
Ji Yinbing looked at the brown sugar water with confusion.
Qiao Jiusheng said, “Drink some to warm your body and nourish your body.”?Losing a child is a serious trauma for a woman, both physically and mentally.
A trace of life finally appeared in Ji Yinbing’s lifeless eyes.
She reached out and took the bowl of brown sugar water. She did not thank Qiao Jiusheng and directly drank it.
There was no need to express her gratitude.
Ji Yinbing stayed in the apartment that night. Qiao Jiusheng called Aunt Jin and told her to bring an old hen the next day. She intended to stew it to nourish Ji Yinbing. After the call, Qiao Jiusheng went to take a shower. She wore loose pajamas and lay down beside Fang Yusheng.
She turned her head and saw Fang Yusheng holding his phone and chatting with someone. Qiao Jiusheng leaned over to take a look and couldn’t help but ask, “I’ve been wanting to ask you for a long time. Where did you download this ‘OK’ chat app? Why can’t I find it in the app store?”
Fang Yusheng put his arm around her shoulders and told her, “Ah Nuo found someone to develop this software. No news of it leaked out.” They had some information that was more dangerous and not suitable for public use. This application had secret eavesdropping software.
Qiao Jiusheng was enlightened. “No wonder!”
She leaned on Fang Yusheng’s shoulder and saw him joking around with Suzanne and Zhuang Long in the group.
Zhuang Long would never stop. He kept shouting in the group chat,
[An, red packet! Red packet!]
Suzanne: [You want him to fork out money? Dream on!]
Zhuang Long: [Red packet! If you don’t give red packets, I won’t give your son a gift!]
An: [One moment.]
Fang Yusheng sent a red packet in the chat.
Zhuang Long’s hand speed was fast, and he immediately snatched the red packet.
Zhuang Long: [Shit! Fifty cents?]
Qiao Jiusheng could not help but laugh. “Don’t tease him.”
Fang Yusheng sent another red packet. This time, Zhuang Long didn’t even have the desire to snatch the red packet. After a while, Suzanne received the red packet.
Suzanne: [Thanks! I can’t believe there are five hundred!]
If Fang Yusheng could send five hundred yuan red packets, it would be like rain falling from the sky.
Zhuang Long: [Fang Yu, you chicken! This is sexism! Why did you give her 500 yuan, but 50 cents to me!]
Fang Yusheng sent another red packet especially to Zhuang Long.
Zhuang Long accepted it.
Zhuang Long: [Hmph, only 250, half less than Susannah.]
Zhuang Long: [I’ll reluctantly forgive you.]
Suzanne: [Zhuang Long, there’s something I don’t know if I should say.]
Zhuang Long: [Then don’t say it.]
Suzanne sent a row of ellipses before saying: [In China, the number 250 has a special meaning.]
Zhuang Long: [What?]
Fang Yusheng: [Idiot.]
Suzanne: [He’s right.]
Zhuang Long was so angry that he wanted to throw knives at the group.
Fang Yusheng raised his eyebrows and said to Qiao Jiusheng, “This idiot is going to lose his wife, yet he’s still causing trouble in the group.”
Upon hearing him mention Xiao Li, Qiao Jiusheng said, “A few days ago, I saw a report on Xiao Li’s nightclub where she had handsome men on her left and her right. From the looks of it, Xiao Li’s life is pretty good. It’s exciting to have a happy night.”
Fang Yusheng sneered. “This idiot is crying!”
Just then, the private chat box lit up.
Fang Yusheng clicked on it. His face fell when he saw Yan Nuo.
Yan Nuo immediately sent a video request. Fang Yusheng hesitated for a moment before accepting it.
