Ye Qing Xin’s excuse of being tired, it’s not only for letting him mind his business.
But these two says her morning sickness has worsen, she gets dizzy and she loves to sleep.
She orders Ye Qing Guo to not make trouble. Ye Qing Xin returns to her room and sleeps. She sleeps until it’s 05:00 p.m.
She goes to the restroom for a while, then the time she comes out, her phone rings.
It’s Dou Weir.
She answers. Without saying hello, Dou Weir just says immediately: “Xin Xin, I have two music concert, do you want to go with me?”
Ye Qing Xin laughs: “Am I hearing it wrongly? You unexpectedly want to go to listen to music? I thought you are more suitable to be a fan-meeting of an idol.”
Dou Weir ignores her jokes and asks: “Do you want to go?”
Dou Weir doesn’t wait for her response and just answers: “let’s go. This concert is very elegant. It’ll be good for your kid inside your belly.”
“I also have something to talk to you>”
The last sentence is her main part.
Ye Qing Xin: “What time?”
Dou Weir: “08:00 p.m., national theater.”
The call ends. Ye Qing Xin just puts her phone away then her phone rings again.
She looks at the screen, it’s a call from Jing Bo Yuan.
He asks her: “Are you feeling better now?”
Ye Qing Xin could hear his caring. She smiles: “I slept before so I feel betternow.”
“Em.” Jing Bo Yuan says: “Tonight I’ll go home a bit later, you should sleep early.”
Ye Qing Xin: “Weir before called me, she asked me out to go to musical concert. It’ll start at 08:00 p.m.”
It’s a silence. Then Jing Bo Yuan says: “Let Xiao He sends you over.”
“No need, I can take a taxi.”
Jing Bo Yuan just ignores her and says: “When you are done, go home earlier.”
Ye Qing Xin puts down her phone and sits down on the sofa.
Since they have settled their relationship, Jing Bo Yuan will call her to inform his routine just like a husband and wife.
Not really true, perhaps even before they settled their relationship.
She puts her down and raises her hands to stroke her belly. She is happy. Heaven is fair toward her, her first half of her life was bumpy but next half will be happy. She should be happy.
After a while, Auntie Zhang calls her to eat dinner.
Auntie Zhang is worried about her appetite so she cooks a lot of dishes with different flavors: sour, sweet, less oily. But it’s clear that it’s not suit for Ye Qing Guo’s appetite. He raises her chopsticks, he chews a slice of beef. His eyes keep on watching Ye Qing Xin. He looks like he wants to throw it up but he doesn’t dare to do it.
Ye Qing Xin smiles and asks Auntie Zhang: “Was Xiao Guo naughty this afternoon?”
Auntie Zhang replies: “No, Xiao Guo was very good. He was playing with cricket at the garden, he didn’t run around carelessly.”
Ye Qing Xin picks a slice of fish fillet with her chopsticks and puts it inside Ye Qing Guo’s bowl: “Xiao Guo is very great oh.”
Ye Qing Guo finally could swallow the hard meat, his eyes turn bright: “Then can I eat fried potato chips?”
Ye Qing Xin shakes her head: “You cannot eat snacks during dinner time.”
Ye Qing Guo puts down his chopsticks, “But it’s hard to eat……”
“Xiao Guo, do you forget what Jie Jie told you before?”
“No, Jie Jie said that I shouldn’t waste any food. I cannot be picky about food. There’s a lot of little friends that even cannot have food to eat. We should be aware of our blessing.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and teaches with skill and patience: “Very good, then Xiao Guo, what should you do now?”
Ye Qing Guo takes his chopsticks and moves his bowl closer: “I should eat seriously and not waste any food.”
After the dinner, it’s just six o’clock. Ye Qing Xin calls Connie and tells her that she is back. She asks her when she has time to meet. Ye Qing Xin wants to return her USB.
Yet Connie says: “Now if you have time, you can come over to my office at Pear. I have some things to do here. Just in time you can come by to be familiar with this new working environment.”
Ye Qing Xin is happy. She thought that Connie has forgotten about her invitation about working at Pear.
She takes her handbag and puts the USB inside her handbag. She also puts her phone inside the bag. Then she goes to the dressing room to change her clothes to a short-sleeved white shirt and dark blue skirt. She puts her shirt inside her skirt’s waist. She takes her coat too. She looks a professional woman. She looks at the mirror and sees herself suddenly turns into like a secretary of Bo Wei, just like Secretary Mi Mi.
The time she goes out of the room, Ye Qing Guo looks at her and notices she will go out. He turns into a clingy person. “Jie Jie, where will you go, Xiao Guo wants to go too.”
Ye Qing Xin strokes his head and persuades her: “Xiao Guo, be good. Jie Jie has business to do. I cannot take you with me. Xiao Guo, stay home with Auntie Zhang okay?”
Ye Qing Guo clutches her sleeve: “not good.”
Ye Qing Xin persuades him again: “Xiao Guo, didn’t you say that you’ll listen to me? How can you forget about it? Kids should keep their promise. Be good, let Auntie Zhang prepares you a fruit salad.”
He Gu is instructed by Jing Bo Yuan to wait for Ye Qing Xin outside the mansion.
With great difficulty finally Ye Qing Guo let her go. Ye Qing Xin gets on the car and tells He Gu about Connie’s office address. The car starts to drive away.
After forty minutes, the car enters Jing City’s business district.
The car stops at a tall building. She enters the building and finds out the there’s a sluice gate. Ye Qing Xin calls Connie. Then after a while, Connie’s assistant comes down and guides her to the 18th floor.
The whole floor is Pear office.
Now it’s the time to get off work, but the office is full of busy people. Connie’s assistant guides Ye Qing Xin to the all the department to look around. Then finally to the designer center. It’s a very modern room.
This time, Connie comes over and greets Ye Qing Xin. Then she calls after someone: “Huo Huo.”
Then a fashionable woman comes over. She looks like a thirty years old woman.
Ye Qing Xin stares at her. She has seen this woman online. She calls Han Huo Huo, she is the domestic well-known designer. She is quite popular in the fashion industry.
“This woman is the one that I mentioned to you, she is Ye Qing Xin. She will be your assistant.” Connie says to Han Huo Huo. Then she says to Ye Qing Xin: “In the future you will be her assistant.”
Ye Qing Xin is happy but she doesn’t be so obvious about it. She smiles and greets Han Huo Huo: “Designer Han, Hi.”
Han Huo Huon examines her but her smile is still kind and gentle. “Hi, just call my name.”
Then Connie takes Ye Qing Xin to her personal office room. She says to Ye Qing Xin: “I know that you are not graduate yet, you still have courses. Later on you can work more flexibly. But if Huo Huo has jobs for you, you need to finish it on time. Your monthly wage is four thousand, what do you think?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles: “of course.”
The time she comes out from the building, Ye Qing Xin feels that it’s so unreal.
She now has been turned into an assistant of well-know designer.
Four thousand month is low wage, but for her it’s quite good. It’s better than her part-time job. It’s a lot more than part-time job salary. The most important is this is a good start.
She goes to the parking area. She isn’t focused. She doesn’t pay attention that a white car drives with a full speed toward her.
He Gu looks at that moment. He is so surprised and calls after her: “Tai Tai, be careful!”
The white car moves toward her and just disappears.
Ye Qing Xin’s heart is beating so fast. Her legs turn weak. She feels afraid and shocked.
“Are you okay?” A man asks her.
Ye Qing Xin nods, she is so shocked.
She gets the intense life threatening experience.
“Tai Tai, are you okay?” He Gu runs over. He thanks the stranger: “Thank you Mister to help my Tai Tai.”
That man is shocked to hear He Gu calling Ye Qing Xin as Tai Tai.
The woman looks like she’s just twenty years old. This woman is a married woman.
“It’s okay. Let your Tai Tai be more careful.”
He Gu thanks that man again: “Thank you.”
That man smiles and goes inside the building.
He Gu notices Ye Qing Xin’s pale face, he knows that she is so shocked. He couldn’t help but to say: “Now people are so careless ind riving. They just want to hit anyone. That kind of people should be prohibited to drive!”
Ye Qing Xin just regains herself.
It’s lucky that someone helps her, if not she might be laying on the bed now.
“My savior?” Ye Qing Xin asks He Gu.
He Gu says: “he has gone inside the building.”
Ye Qing Xin arrives at National theater almost at eight o’clock.
Dou Weir is calling her, she raises her head and notices her. “I thought you will not come.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles brightly: “I have thing to do before, so I am late. It’s almost time right, let’s get in.”
They get inside. Dou Weir guides Ye Qing Xin to their seat. The time they take their seat, the light turns off soon and the music starts.
“Xin Xin.” Ye Qing Xin is rubbing her belly happily. Dou Weir comes closer to her and says to her: “I have a secret. I don’t know whether it’s proper or not to say it.”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and says: “Since you don’t know, then don’t.”
Dou Weir isn’t happy, she sits back. Then after a while, she comes closer again. She just makes it straight: “I accidentally watched Shi Ying having an intimate moment with a man, they came out from the hotel. Tell me should I tell He Ji Fan?”
Ye Qing Xin is calm: “But you are unrelated with He Ji Fan? Why should you tell her? If he is being cuckold, it’s his own problem.”
Dou Weir pouts and returns to her seat. She doesn’t come closer again to say anything to her.
After an hour and half the musical concert ends.
Dou Weir went to the national theater with taxi. Ye Qing Xin asks her to go back with her. She let He Gu to send Dou Weir home firs.t
The car is silent.
Before she gets off the car, she cannot help but to ask: “Xin Xin, he supports me for my living. He gives me clothes to wear, food to eat, place to live. He also gives me money to spend. He can be like my bankroller. Shouldn’t I consider for him?”
Ye Qing Xin looks at her: “if you think that you should consider him because of his money then tell him. But you need to understand clearly that you really want to tell him the truth because of his money or because you are unwilling to let him be deceived.”
Even if she doesn’t love a man, as long that man is not really a bad one. Once they are having s*x**l relationship. That woman will be affected. To the extend that sometimes a woman will not know about her own feeling.
He Gu drives away. Ye Qing Xin turns her head to look at Dou Weir. Dou Weir is staring blankly at the sky.
Ye Qing Xin doesn’t want to say much. Sometimes people should think and come to realize by themselves.
This time Ye Qing Xin’s phone rings.
She takes out her phone, it’s Jing Bo Yuan’s number
She answers: “Hi.”
“When will you be home?”
“I’m on my way. I’ll be soon. Are you home?”
“I just arrived. I’ll be waiting for you at home.”
She hangs up. She feels happy. Without her mother, she still has this man.
The car stops in front the Nan Shan mansion number 8.
Ye Qing Xin gets off the car and notices the door is left unlocked.
Jing Bo Yuan leaves the door open for her.
She opens the door, she is faced with Jing Bo Yuan. He is waiting for her.
“Are you waiting for long?” Ye Qing Xin looks at him.
He smiles at her and asks her back: “How’s the music?”
Ye Qing Xin smiles and replies: “it’s very cultivating for the mind. Now I think I have cultivated my mind.”
Jing Bo Yuan pinches her cheek: “Naughty.”
Ye Qing Xin pouts: “I am saying the truth.”
Jing Bo Yuan doesn’t say anything. He hugs her and takes her to change to her slipper.
She raises one of her leg. She acts like a spoiled child and says: “I’m tired. I cannot take off my shoes.”
Jing Bo Yuan looks at her, he doesn’t say anything else. He just kneels down and helps her to take off her flat shoes. Then let her wear her slippers.
He stands up and strokes her hair. He asks: “Are you hungry?”
Ye Qing Xin shakes her head.
She doesn’t have a great appetite these days, it’s been a long time since she was hungry.
“Auntie Zhang said that you didn’t eat a lot. Eat more.” Jing Bo Yuan takes her to the dining hall. Auntie Zhang is placing a pot of assorted tofus.”
She looks at Ye Qing Xin and Jing Bo Yuan and Auntie Zhang says: “The food is done, Mister and Madame you can eat now.”
Ye Qing Xin finally understands, she asks him: “You haven’t had your dinner?”
Jing Bo Yuan pulls a chair to let her sit down, then he sits down on his chair. He just replies simply: “Em.”
“Then let me accompany you to eat.”
She takes a bowl and takes a few scoops for Jing Bo Yuan.
Then she turns her head and asks Auntie Zhang: “Is Xiao Guo asleep?”
Auntie Zhang replies and smiles: “He is asleep.”
“Did he give you any trouble?”
“No, he is very obedient. He is sensible.”
Because of taking care of Ye Qing Guo, Auntie Zhang stays at the guest room at the first floor. She doesn’t come over early and come home at night.
After the dinner, she mentions her job with Connie’s company with Jing Bo Yuan.
Jing Bo Yuan nods and says: “It’s good to start low, you will be more firm in the future.”
Ye Qing Xin: “…..”
She also feels that this is a rare opportunity. How can not-yet-graduate student suddenly be an assistant of famous designer? It’s even hard for graduate one……”
Ye Qing Xin wants to mention about the almost-accident in front of the building. But she just keeps it, she doesn’t want him to be anxious.
Ye Qing Xin takes a shower then let Jing Bo Yuan takes a shower.
The time Jing Bo Yuan comes out, she is reading a fashion magazine.
“You are not sleeping.” Jing Bo Yuan takes her magazine from her grip.
Ye Qing Xin smiles and hugs his arm. She hugs him: “without hugging you, I cannot sleep.”
Jing Bo Yuan raises her chin: “Your words are sweet.”
“Sweet? Do you want to try?”
She is teasing him. He kisses her.
It’s the first time they kiss again since Zhou Qiao Qiao’s dead.
After a kiss, Jing Bo Yuan let her go. He is reserved. “Be good and sleep. You need to wake up early. We need to go to hospital for check up. Then we should go to civil administration office to register our marriage. We will be busy.”
Ye Qing Xin almost forgets about it, but he unexpectedly remembers it.
The light is off.
Jing Bo Yuan hugs her. Ye Qing Xin moves and finds a comfortable position to sleep.
“Tomorrow we will register our marriage. Will you wear shirt and pants?”
“What will be the color of your shirt? White? Gray? Dark blue?”
“What do you think?”
“I think you are better wearing white one. What do you think?”
“You will wear white shirt, I will also wear white shirt. We will be photographed like a couple.”
He just hugs her and pats her back: “Okay as you wish.”
