Stealing Your Heart Chapter 15
Suppressing the panic in her heart, Bai Zhuwei lowered her gaze slightly, her eyes slightly watery. “She has been with you all day long. If she joins the company as a translator, she’ll be even closer to you. I’m afraid that you will have feelings for each other as time passes.”
Now that she couldn’t hide it from him, she didn’t want to hide it anymore. Instead, she told him frankly to dispel his suspicion. She was just afraid that she would lose him.
With her big, watery eyes, she added, “You’ve known me for a long time, and you know how I feel about you—”
Bai Zhuwei continued to hold back her tears. “I was so afraid that I would lose you. That’s why I acted on my own when I saw her application for the job.”
Zong Jinghao frowned hard. “I told you, we’ll get divorced after a month.”
Bai Zhuwei knew it. If she didn’t know that Lin Xinyan was the girl on that night, she would be willing to wait. She had been waiting for so many years, so another month was nothing. But now, she could not wait anymore.
I couldn’t let her get too close to Zong Jinghao!
“Lin Xinyan, bring this over to table no. 2.”
Lin Xinyan replied in acknowledgment. Somehow, due to her lack of sleep last night and frequent standing at work today, she felt a slight pain in her lower abdomen.
She walked toward table number two with the tray of food. Before she got to the seat, she saw Bai Zhuwei, with Zong Jinghao sitting across from her.
She hesitated for a very short time. This was her job, so she couldn’t avoid it.
Keeping a standard smile on her face, she said, “Here’s your food.”
Bending over, Lin Xinyan took out the food from the tray.
When she placed the plate in front of Zong Jinghao, her wrist was suddenly grabbed. “What are you doing?”
His voice sounded slightly cold, with a questioning tone.
His gaze lingered on her body. She wore a white shirt with a black vest, and a short fitted skirt that only covered her hips, revealing a pair of fair, straight legs.
His gaze lingered on her legs for a few seconds, as his face grew overcast.
What kind of attire is she wearing? To whom is she showing her skin to?
She’s a married woman, what is she doing here?
Lin Xinyan kept a smile on her face. “I’m working.”
Zong Jinghao frowned, with slight anger on his face. Besides translating the documents and asking for money from him, she was now even doing such a job. Did the Lins really fall to such a state?
“Could you please let go of me?” Lin Xinyan didn’t see it as a big deal, as she made money with her own hands.
Bai Zhuwei reached out to grab Zong Jinghao’s hand. “Hao, people are watching. Let’s go out and talk.”
No one knew about the marriage between Zong Jinghao and Lin Xinyan. Bai Zhuwei didn’t want Zong Jinghao to make this matter clear.
Staring at Lin Xinyan, Zong Jinghao was only able to suppress his inexplicable anger after a long time and let go of her. “I don’t want you to work here.”
Lin Xinyan only felt the pain in her lower abdomen grew in intensity, while beads of sweat had formed on her forehead. she wanted to explain, but she felt weak, so she left with the food tray without saying anything.
She put down the plate and went into the toilet. This feeling scared her. Fortunately, she didn’t bleed.
Coming out from the cubicle, she washed her hands by the sink. She then lowered her head and touched her belly. “Be good, my baby.”
Mommy needs to make money. Only when I have money could I take good care of my mother and the baby in my tummy.
Bai Zhuwei came in and happened to hear what she said. She fixed her eyes on her belly while her face turned pale.
Seeing her pale face, Lin Xinyan explained, “This isn’t Zong Jinghao’s. You don’t have to look so pale.”
Then, Lin Xinyan pulled herself together, walked past her, and went out of the toilet.
“Your pregnancy, has it been two months?” Bai Zhuwei turned around.
Lin Xinyan stopped and turned around. “How do you know that?”
“I-I’m just making a guess.” Bai Zhuwei struggled to hold on.
S-She’s actually pregnant with Zong Jinghao’s baby?!
As expected, this woman must not stay here!
At this moment, Bai Zhuwei wanted to get rid of this woman badly, and make her completely disappear from Zong Jinghao’s world!
After Lin Xinyan walked out of the toilet, she was grabbed by Zong Jinghao in the wrist, and pulled out of the restaurant.
She was already feeling unwell, and after being dragged away by Zong Jinghao, she only felt that the eased pain became serious again.
“Let go of me!” She wanted to shout at him, but she didn’t have enough strength, so there was a lack of vigor in her tone.
Zong Jinghao only released her after dragging her all the way to the roadside. He said sternly, “You can just tell me if you need money. You don’t need to pretend to be pitiful in front of me!”
He didn’t believe that the Lins had fallen to such a state. Lin Guoan even took his wife and daughter to shop at a luxury store two days ago. Yet now, she actually came to work as a waitress at a restaurant?
Lin Xinyan leaned against the advertising sign on the roadside; otherwise, she would not be able to stand it. She tried hard to calm herself down. “Although you and I are husband and wife, we both know that we’re just making a deal. A deal that allows us to get what we want. You don’t have to be so angry about what I do, Mr. Zong.”
“Since you’re my wife, doing this kind of job is a disgrace to me!” Zong Jinghao was puzzled by this woman. Her behaviors were always inscrutable.
Pursing her lips, Lin Xinyan quietly endured the pain.
Just as she couldn’t hold on any longer, He Ruize ran over to her. “Yan, I came here to look for you. I didn’t expect that I would really—Are you feeling unwell?”
As a psychiatrist, he was very observant of the human body language. Although Lin Xinyan tried her best to endure the pain, he noticed her discomfort.
After he parted ways with her that day, he went to Zhuang Zijin at her house. He learned everything about Lin Xinyan from Zhuang Zijin, including how she got pregnant.
He couldn’t name the feelings in his heart, but he didn’t feel good.
Why didn’t she go to me after encountering such difficulties?!
He wanted to look for her, but he didn’t know where she lived, so he came to the place where they met yesterday to try his luck. He didn’t expect that he would really find her.
Lin Xinyan couldn’t bother to care about anything now, as the pain in her lower abdomen made her panic. So she grabbed He Ruize in the arm. “Please send me to the hospital.”
He Ruize looked at her lower abdomen. When he bent over to hold her, he felt a sudden grip on his shoulder.
He turned around.
Zong Jinghao’s face clouded over, while he said, “She’s my wife.”
His tone was neutral, yet fearsome!
As if he was warning He Ruize that she was his wife and others couldn’t touch her!
He Ruize smiled mockingly. “You’re husband and wife?”
Before Zong Jinghao could react, he added, “You’re just making a deal. You won’t marry a woman that is pregnant.”
Zong Jinghao narrowed his eyes, while a dangerous aura coming out from him. “The child is yours?”
