" Ahh I don't have faith in you. I believe that Quin will give me a grandchild first. Well let's not ignore the fact that he has already given me one." Mother Li.

Li Singtan frowned and asked," What do you mean?"

" You actually took five years to marry someone you love. And I guess you will take another 3 to 4 years to you know consummate your marriage." Mother Li said.

" How did you know that we did not consummate our *ahem* marriage?" Li Singtan asked.

Mother Li smiled and said," Don't forget that I am your mother. I am aware of every cell that is present in your body. I know you are a turtle when it comes to love. Look at your brother, he is faster than a cheetah. He is not even married yet but still." Mother Li sighed and said," Anyway I like the way you want to take things slow so that Ming doesn't feel uncomfortable. But you have to increase your speed son. Your parents and grandparents are not getting younger and neither are you."

Li Singtan nodded his head and said," I understand your concern but I want to give her time. She has just started opening up in front me. I want her to take an initiative for this."

Mother Li rolled her eyes and murmured," It looks like I am talking with the wrong person."

" What did you say?" Li Singtan asked.

" What? I did not say anything." Mother Li said. ' I have to talk to Ming about this' she thought inwardly.


As Li Singtan and Mother Li were busy talking, Grandma Li was cutting an apple for Xie Ming.

" Grandma you don't have to do this." Xie Ming said.

Grandma Li smiled and said," It's nothing child. You should eat more fruits. It's good for your health."

Xie Ming smiled and nodded her head.

" You have to take care of your body properly from now on. You are too skinny. If you don't gain some weight now, you will face problems when you give birth." Grandma Li said.

Xie Ming blushed. The thought about having a child with Li Singtan was already making her feel giddy.

" Eat." Grandma Li said.

" You should eat more fruits and leafy vegetables from now on. Your reports say that you lack hemoglobin in your blood. Also you are very skinny." Li Singtan said from behind.

Xie Ming raised her eyebrows and asked," Who said that?"

" The doctor and your reports." Li Singtan said.

Xie Ming rolled his eyes and said," You will be the first one to complain if I gain lots and lots of weight."

" I won't complain even if you gain 100 pounds." Li Singtan said.

" Liar." Xie Ming said.

" Why would I lie?" Li Singtan asked.

" Because you are a liar." Xie Ming shouted.

While the two of them were busy arguing with each other, Mother Li and Grandma Li were smiling.

" Okay now you both keep doing this after we go." Mother Li said.

Walking towards Xie Ming, Mother Li kissed her forehead and said," Come home fast okay."

Grandma Li patted her head and left the room along with mother Li.


In the outskirts of Country S.

" How is she?" The old man asked one of his subordinate.

The subordinate lowered her head and said," She is fine sir."

The old man nodded is head and said," What about Simon?"

" He is still following his previous plan." The subordinate said.

The old man sighed," He is courting death. Anyway forget about him for now. Help me send an email to Li Singtan again asking him to be cautious about people around him."

The subordinate nodded his head though he was confused. His boss was constantly helping Li Singtan since the past few weeks and he failed to understand why.



Li Singtan was sitting in the couch with his laptop while Xie Ming was lying on the bed.

Pouting her lips, Xie Ming said," Your wife is staring at you since like half an hour, and look at you. You did not even notice."

Li Singtan sighed and said," What do you want?"

" Your attention." Xie Ming shouted.

Closing his laptop, he got up from the couch and started walking towards the bed.

Climbing on the bed, Li Singtan carefully pulled her into his embrace and asked,"Is this much attention enough?"

Snuggling her head in his chest, Xie Ming nodded.

Running her hands on his chest, Xie Ming asked," So Singtan when are you planning to tell me everything?"

" What everything?" Li Singta asked.

" Who was the attacker and why were you attacked?" Xie Ming said. Pausing for a while, Xie Ming continued," I know you are hiding many things from me. Don't you think that I have the right to know everything that is related to you?"

Li Singtan did not say anything and closed his eyes.

Lifting up her head, when Xie Ming saw Li Singtan sleeping or rather pretending to sleep, she sighed in disappointment. Struggling out of his embrace, Xie Ming turned to the other side of the bed and said,"It's fine if you don't want to. I-I understand."

Slowly opening his eyes, Li Singtan took a deep breath. He wanted to talk to her but something was stopping him. Fear of her rejection after hearing the truth was stopping him from telling everything.

Covering her with the quilt, Li Singtan whispered in her ears," I love you."

Xie Ming let out a small laugh and said,"You say that you love me but you don't trust me. How funny is that?"

" It's not that I don't trust you Ming. It's just that-" Li Singtan said.

" Just that what?" Xie Ming asked.

" Nothing just sleep. Don't stress over these things." Li Singtan said before getting down from the bed.

" So now you are just walking out. Great." Xie Ming said.

Li Singtan sighed and said," I am not walking out. I am just trying not to argue with you."

" Oh so now you think I am sticking my nose in your business." Xie Ming said.

Without saying another word, Li Singtan walked out of the room.

Throwing a pillow towards the door, Xie Ming shouted," Since you are leaving me alone like this today, don't come back."
