Simon's villa

Throwing the documents on the floor Simon shouted," What do you mean by you don't know what happened? Why did I hire you if you are unable to complete such a simple task?"

The subordinate couldn't help but shiver in fear," Boss that-"

" Wasn't everything fine yesterday? How did things reach to this point? The price of our shares have dropped to almost zero. Do you have any idea how serious this matter is?" Simon shouted.

" Boss this happened so quickly that before we could analyse what was wrong, the price of our shares were already down." The subordinate said.

" Nonsense. Who is doing this?" Simon yelled in frustration.

" Boss do you think it is Mr Li's doing?" The subordinate asked.

Simon shook his head and said," No no Li Singtan has no idea about this."

" Then Boss How?" The subordinate asked.

" We've offended someone very powerful. Find out who is it and try to fix a meeting with them." Simon said.


By the time Li Singtan returned home, it was past 10pm.

" Where is your young Madam?" Li Singtan asked.

The maid lowered her head and said," Young Madam is upstairs."

" Did she eat something?" Li Singtan asked.

The maid shook her head and said," No young master she didn't. Madam is not at home. She had to leave urgently because she had take care of few things. Master left along with her. Madam told me to cook some healthy food for Young madam but she told me that she would eat when you come back."

Li Singtan sighed and went upstairs.


Inside the room.

When Li Singtan entered the room, Xie Ming was sleeping on the couch.

Walking towards her, Li Singtan shook her shoulders and said," Ming why are you sleeping here?"

When Ming opened her eyes, she smiled and said," Welcome back,"

Flicking her forehead, Singtan said," Silly why didn't you eat anything? Do you have to wait for me?"

Ming nodded her head and said," I don't like eating alone."

" Come let's go downstairs and eat something." Singtan said before stretching his hands towards her.

Xie Ming pouted her lips and said," I don't feel like walking."

Li Singtan helplessly shook his head and scooped her into his arms.

" Singtan I dreamt about our baby. He was so cute and he also had your eyes." Xie Ming said hooking her hands around his neck.

Li Singtan chuckled and asked," You seriously want a boy?"

Xie Ming nodded her head and asked," Do you think everything will be okay? I mean-"

" Stop over thinking. Nothing will happen to you or our baby." Li Singtan said.

" I am just scared." Xie Ming said.

" You don't have to feel scared when I am with you." Li Singtan said.

" I want us to have this baby." Xie Ming said.

Kissing her forehead, Singtan said," We will."

Carefully placing her on the chair, Li Singtan asked the maid to bring the food.

Sitting beside her, Li Singtan said," Father is planning to throw a party this Saturday. He wants to celebrate Yufans success and he also wants to introduce us to the Xie family properly."

" I don't know about us but Yufan surely deserves it. Yutang told Yixi about how easily Yufan managed to crack the deal. My little brother has grown up." Xie Ming said.

" Yes your little brother is not little anymore." Singtan said.

" I should go home and help father make arrangements." Xie Ming said.

Li Singtan frowned and said," No you won't. Ling will be helping father Xie and uncle Chen is there too. You cannot tire your body like that. You need rest."

" I get bored sitting at home all day. You also come back home so late." Xie Ming complained.

Li Singtan sighed and said," You can't recklessly move around."

Xie Ming lowered her head and did not say anything.

" Ming you know I am doing this for you and our baby right?" Li Singtan said.

Xie Ming frowned and said," The maids don't even let me pick up a dropped handkerchief from the floor. I have to stay inside my room all day. I just get up to eat and then again sleep. I feel like a pig."

After knowing about the complications in her pregnancy, Li Singtan had become ready strict with her. He did not allow her to step out of the of the house without him. He had asked two three maids to constantly keep an eye on her. The maids did not allow her to do any kind of work. Left with no other choice Xie Ming used to sleep all day and wake up only to have her meals.

" You are my cute little pig." Li Singtan said.

Suddenly Xie Ming burst into tears and said," See now even you are calling me a pig."

" Hey hey I was just joking. You are not a pig you are a panda. Stop crying please." Li Singtan said before kneeling down on the floor.

" Now you are calling me a panda too." Xie Ming said before hitting his shoulder.

Li Singtan helplessly ruffled his hair and said," I am sorry. I'll never call you a pig or a panda. I am sorry. Stop crying please. You know I hate it when I see you crying."

" Okay okay if you stop crying, I'll take you out for an ice cream treat. What say?" Li Singtan asked.

Wiping her tears away, Xie Ming said," I want donuts too."

" Alright alright I'll get you both. But first you have to stop crying and finish your food." Li Singtan said.

Xie Ming nodded her head and started eating.
