 Xie Mansion.

By the time Singtan arrived at the mansion, it was already past ten thirty.

" Ming is inside her bedroom." Father Xie said who was sitting in the living reading some documents.

" Father I-"

Father Xie smiled and said," You don't have to explain anything to me Singtan. I understand your feelings very well and I am happy that you care about my daughter so much. Why don't you go inside and talk to Ming?"

Li Singtan nodded his head and left.


Ming's room.

When Li Singtan entered the room, Xie Ming was standing in front of the window crossing both her hands in front of her.

Picking up the quilt from the bed, Li Singtan wrapped it around her and said," You should wear thick clothes and why aren't you sleeping?"

" I wasn't feeling sleepy." Xie Ming said.

" Can't fall asleep without me?" Li Singtan asked.

Xie Ming slowly nodded her head.

Wrapping his arms around her, Li Singtan placed his head in her shoulder and said," Ming do you know selfish you are? You are just thinking about yourself and our baby but who will think about me? It was so easy for you to say that you don't care if anything happens to you but what do you think will happen to me if something happens to you? Do you think that I'll be able to survive without you?"

Pausing for a while, Li Singtan said," I know I was wrong for taking such a big decision all by myself but that was the only thing I could think of at that very moment. Honestly speaking Ming losing the baby is not a big deal for me. We can always have one in the future. Even if we don't there are several other options which we can opt for but if I lose you, I'll lose myself. You are my life, my strength, my weakness, my everything. I cannot even imagine my life without you."

Turning around, Xie Ming buried her head in his chest and started crying.

Wrapping his arms around her, Li Singtan said," I know you want to have this baby. I too want it but not at the stake of losing you. I am ready to spend the rest of my life without having a child of my own but not without you."

" I am sorry and did not mean to hurt you. I-" Ming said.

Li Singtan chuckled and said," Silly it's not your fault either. We both acted impulsively."

" I will do as you say." Xie Ming said lifting her head up.

Wiping her tears away, Li Singtan said," Let's give it a shot. Let's not give up so easily. I'll always be there for you and I believe that we will pass this difficult phase together."

" Really?" Xie Ming asked.

Kissing the tip of her nose, Li Singtan said," Really but you've listen to me and eat whatever I feed you with."

Hugging him tightly, Xie Ming said," I am sorry Singtan. I seriously did not realise that it is difficult for you too. I am sorry."

" Yes you even said that you don't need me."

" I am sorry."

" You even said that both of you don't need me."

" I am sorry."

" You also said that there is no difference between me and Chen Siquan."

" I am sorry."

" You even called me heartless."

" I am sorry."

Li Singtan chuckled and said," You even said that-"

Hitting him on his chest, Xie Ming said," Stop teasing me."

Lifting her on his arms, Li Singtan asked," How big is the baby?"

" 6-7 weeks." Xie Ming said.

Placing her on the bed, Li Singtan caressed her stomach and said," Hey you little brat you've already taken my wife away from me."

Xie Ming chuckled and asked," How so?"

" She is still inside you and you've already started taking her side leaving me alone. No wonder what will happen to me after she is born." Li Singtan said making a very sad face.

Caressing her stomach, Xie Ming said," It's not like that."

" Yes it is. You told me that you both are enough for each other and you don't need me. You mother daughter pair have already started bullying me." Li Singtan said.

Xie Ming chuckled and asked," How are you so sure that it is a girl?"

Li Singtan shrugged his shoulders and said," Father instincts."

" Hey stop copying my line." Xie Ming said.

Stretching her hands towards him, Xie Ming said," Come and sleep beside me."

Taking off his shoes, Li Singtan snuggled beside her.

Laying her head on his chest, Xie Ming said," I am sorry once again Singtan. I was wrong this time."

Kissing her forehead, Li Singtan said," It was my fault too."

" Anna said that we should wait till the first trimester is over. If the complications remain as it is, I will have an abortion." Xie Ming said.

Li Singtan sighed and said," Let's take things as they come okay?"

Xie Ming nodded her head.

" We are so strange Ming. We fight and then reconcile within no time." Li Singtan said.

" That is because I love you." Xie Ming said.

" I love you too." Li Singtan said.

Drawing circles on his chest with her hands, Ming asked," W-what did you do with Chen Siquan?"

" He is still alive." Li Singtan said.

Xie Ming pursed her lips and said," Don't kill him."

" Why?" Li Singtan asked.

" I mean don't kill him now. Y-You can do anything you want with him after our baby is born. I don't want anything bad to happen till he is born." Xie Ming said.

Li Singtan widened his eyes in shock and asked," He? What he? You want a boy?"

Xie Ming chuckled and said," Yes. A cute little boy just like you."

Li Singtan shook his head and said," No Ming boys are naughty. Girls are a lot better than boys."

"Girls are naughty too." Xie Ming said.

Li Singtan shook his head and said," Girls are cute kind of naughty. Imagine if a cute little girl wearing a pink frock breaks a vase or does something wrong and then stands in front of you with her hands crossed behind her back, eyes full of tears waiting for you to scold her, will you have the heart to scold her? Atleast I won't. Whereas if a boy does that, I'll definitely scold him or may be thrash him a little too."

Lifting her head up, Xie Ming said," Gender discrimination is illegal."

Li Singtan chuckled and said," As if I am a legal person."

Touching her forehead, Li Singtan asked," Does it hurt?"

Xie Ming shook her head and said," Not anymore." before crashing her lips against his.
