Chapter 210: You Should Name the Baby (1)
In a few days, the child will be born.
Xin Siyue was wearing a grey fringed shawl as she watched the droplets of rainwater flow constantly down the glass window. Drip after drip, the droplets slithered down quickly. Meanwhile, the sky was still dark.
This rain had already been going on for more than a week.
When Chen Sinan came in with a glass of water, he was greeted with the scene of her daydreaming by the glass window. He raised his head and followed her gaze. The heavy rain had been pouring for so many days, but it didn’t seem to show any signs of stopping.
The clouds in the sky were thick and dark. If this went on, then some places would inevitably flood.
Chen Sinan saw her frowning from afar and knew that she was worrying over things. So, he walked over and handed her the glass, saying, “Aren’t you tired standing up for so long? Why don’t you go lay down?”
Xin Siyue accepted the cup of water and took a sip. The temperature of the water was just right. She raised her head and looked at him then leaned into his arms, saying, “I don’t know why, but I can’t help feeling uneasy.”
“You’re just overthinking things, it’ll be fine.”
Xin Siyue smiled and pretended to relax. “I think it’s probably just the rain. It’s been so many days but it still won’t stop. Just thinking about it gives me a headache.”
“It’ll be over in a few days. You should go tosleep, I’ll wake you up in the evening. Didn’t you sleep for just a few hours last night?”
Xin Siyue pondered over it and agreed. “Alright. Will you join me?”
Chen Sinan laid down with her for some time, only after seeing her fall asleep did he get back up again.
Beside Assistant Wang’s number, he had someone else’s number set to mute whenever they called. Chen Sinan’s eyes trailed down for a moment, and he returned the call.
“Chen Sinan, trying to get a hold of you is tough work!”
Chen Sinan believed that he wouldn’t be calling him if there wasn’t anything. Without beating around the bush, he asked straightforwardly, “What is it? Speak.”
“It’s that Shi Shi you personally brought in yourself. She’s kinda kooky and won’t stop talking about wanting to see your wife.”
Shi Shi? Quite naturally, Chen Sinan recalled a few things.
Seeing that he wasn’t going to answer, the man went on, “I’m just mentioning it. Whether you see her or not is your choice. I don’t even know what she’s been up to these days, but she keeps saying that everything is going to end. Do you believe her, Chen Sinan?”
Chen Sinan raised his lips into a disdainful arc. “I don’t.”
Even if he never believed it, Chen Sinan still went to prison the next day. When the dishevelled Shi Shi saw Chen Sinan, her eyes lit up. With eyes wide, she said, pleased, “I knew it was you!”
Chen Sinan looked at her with a blank expression and did not plan to speak.
Shi Shi began laughing even more. “Chen Sinan, you’re the one I actually wanted to see, not that bitch, Xin Siyue. I’ve had to see that abominable face for more than a decade, and I’ve been praying that she’ll die with a broken corpse since ages ago.”
“What did she do wrong for you to hate her so much?”
When Shi Shi saw that he was finally willing to answer her, she felt even happier. “I hate her! Of course, I would! Even if she’s my half-sister, why is she the only one that appears in my dad’s eyes? No matter how well I do, how hard I work, he would never even glance at me! Xin Siyue will always be the only daughter in his heart. Even if she was never willing to speak with and accept him, he still treats her so well! Xin Siyue…What did she do to deserve that?!”
