Stealing Your Heart Chapter 414
Lin Xinyan couldn’t stand it anymore.
Zong Jinghao tilted his head as he looked at her. “You angry?”
Lin Xinyan glared at him.
“Help me take it off. I want to use the bathroom too.”
Lin Xinyan found herself speechless at his response.
How can he be so shameless?
She then deliberately clutched her stomach. “Are you trying to annoy me?”
Zong Jinghao became serious all of a sudden. “Are you feeling unwell?”
Lin Xinyan acted like she was feeling weak and in pain. “Yeah, I’m feeling uncomfortable because of you! If you keep doing this, I’m really going to get angry with you!”
Zong Jinghao knew better than to tease her any further and got out of the bathroom. “I’ll wait for you outside. Just let me know when you’re done!” He said, still feeling worried about her.
Lin Xinyan nodded, and he shut the bathroom door behind him.
Zong Jinghao maintained a carefree attitude in front of her as he didn’t want her to end up overthinking things.
He then whipped out his phone and texted Shen Peichuan: Arrange for Zhuang Zijin to be in this hospital. That’ll make it easier for me to visit and look after her. Lin Xinyan can’t get off the bed by herself, so they won’t run into each other.
He was confident that Lin Xinyan wouldn’t find out about it.
Besides, this was the best hospital in the country, and he didn’t feel safe having her stay over at any other hospital.
Shen Peichuan replied his text shortly after: Okay.
Lin Xinyan had just finished washing her hands and saw him looking at his phone as she opened the bathroom door.
“What are you looking at?” Lin Xinyan looked up at his phone.
Zong Jinghao put his phone away. “Just checking the news.”
“Is that so?” Lin Xinyan didn’t give it much thought.
Zong Jinghao handed her the phone and chuckled. “Would you like to go through my phone, then? See if I’m texting any girls.”
Lin Xinyan glared at him. “That’s none of my business!”
Zong Jinghao knew she would refuse and deliberately held it up to her again. “Are you sure you don’t want to take a look? I might just be texting some pretty girls though! The doctor said we can’t have sex for three months, remember? Who knows, I might not be able to control myself!”
“If you cheat on me, I’ll just do the same…”
“You wouldn’t dare!” he cut her off before she could even finish.
Zong Jinghao picked her up and pretended to be angry. “I’ll break your legs if you dare cheat on me!”
“You’re the one who said you’d cheat on me,” Lin Xinyan muttered under her breath.
Her voice was so soft that Zong Jinghao didn’t hear what she said. “What was that?” he asked after setting her down on the bed.
“I said, I wouldn’t dare.”
Zong Jinghao smiled and gave her a kiss on the cheek. “That’s more like it. How could you be cheating on me when you’re pregnant? Besides, where are you going to find another guy as great as I am?”
Lin Xinyan found herself speechless at how shameless and demanding he was.
Zong Jinghao took a look at the time and saw that it was almost six. “Are you hungry?”
Lin Xinyan got into a more comfortable position on the bed. “Are you going to eat here?”
“Mmm.” Zong Jinghao replied after giving it some thought.
“Yeah, I’m hungry,” said Lin Xinyan. She was afraid that he’d leave without eating as he had been busy all morning.
Zong Jinghao turned around and was about to call out to Aunt Yu. When he opened the door, he saw her standing outside with lunchboxes in hand.
She had gone home at 3 a.m. to prepare the food and brought it over.
“I brought you breakfast and some extra clothes.”
Aunt Yu said with a smile on her face as she held the lunchboxes in one hand and a bag of clothes in the other.
Zong Jinghao was still wearing his shirt from two days ago, and it was his first time wearing something this wrinkled.
“You should take a shower. They have hot water in the bathroom,” Lin Xinyan said. She could see that he had not been resting well in the past two days, let alone grooming himself.
Zong Jinghao stepped aside to let Aunt Yu in and took the bag of clothes over from her. He was about to enter the bathroom when he suddenly turned around and told Lin Xinyan. “You go on and eat. Don’t wait up on me!”
He didn’t want to keep her waiting any longer as she said she was hungry.
“All right.” Lin Xinyan waved at him.
Aunt Yu placed the food on the table and asked her. “Are you going to start eating now?”
Lin Xinyan shook her head. “No, let’s wait for him.”
Aunt Yu smiled and felt that they were looking more and more like a married couple with the way they cared about each other. “I’ll go check when the doctor will make his rounds.”
She came up with that excuse and left the ward to give Zong Jinghao and Lin Xinyan some privacy.
Lin Xinyan chuckled as she watched her close the door behind her. There’s a fixed schedule for doctors to make their rounds, so there’s no need for her to go check at all. It’s obvious that she’s trying to give Zong Jinghao and me some time alone.
The ward was huge. It had a shower in the bathroom, a sofa by the window, a closet, and a desk by the wall. That made things a lot more convenient for her during her stay, with the only downside being the strong smell of disinfectant.
Fortunately for her, she didn’t really mind that smell.
After he was done with his shower, Zong Jinghao came out of the bathroom with only a white towel wrapped around his waist. He was wiping his hair dry while walking towards her.
Lin Xinyan stared at him. “Why don’t you put some clothes on?”
Doing it at home was one thing, but they were in a hospital right now.
Zong Jinghao had only done so after hearing Aunt Yu leaving the ward. Unlike their bathroom at home which has a separate dry area, it was inconvenient for him to get dressed in the small hospital bathroom.
He went over to lock the door before turning towards her. “Did you see anything?”
Lin Xinyan knew he was going to say something obscene and glared at him. “You’re shameless, you know that?”
Zong Jinghao chuckled and replied in a husky voice. “How else would you get pregnant otherwise?”
That left Lin Xinyan at a loss for words.
“Besides, it’s not like you haven’t seen me naked.” Zong Jinghao said as he removed his towel and got dressed in front of her.
Lin Xinyan knew she couldn’t win that argument and simply covered her face with her hands.
“I’m done, so you can look now.” Zong Jinghao said a few minutes later while buttoning up his shirt.
Lin Xinyan put her hands down, and true enough, he was all dressed.
Zong Jinghao served up the food that Aunt Yu had brought them and placed everything on the overbed table.
She had made them shrimp porridge, vegetarian steamed dumplings, fried eggs, broccoli, and a few other side dishes.
It was a very light meal with little to no seasonings as the ingredients gave the food plenty of flavor.
Lin Xinyan found all the food to her liking, especially the porridge which tasted amazing.
Zong Jinghao saw her finish her porridge really quickly and gave her his serving. “Here, have some more.”
Aunt Yu had made an extra serving for Lin Xinyan as she saw how late Zong Jinghao came over the night before and figured they would have breakfast together.
Lin Xinyan looked up at him. “Aren’t you going to eat it? It’s really good.”
“I don’t like it.” He said while stuffing a spoonful of broccoli into his mouth.
Lin Xinyan smiled and took the bowl of porridge over from him. Despite how delicious it was, she simply couldn’t finish two bowls.
She ate what she could and handed him the bowl. “I can’t finish it.”
Zong Jinghao eyed the porridge in the bowl and raised an eyebrow.
“What? You don’t want it anymore because I’ve eaten from that bowl?”
