Taking out the dryer , Songpa quickly plugged it in and started drying Beth's hair.

Beth closed her eyes when he felt his fingers running through her hair.

" You shouldn't leave your hair wet. What if you catch a cold?" Songpa asked.

Beth chuckled and said," I'll learn how to use a dryer."

" Hmm you should." Songpa said.

After making sure that her hair was completely dry, Songpa turned the dryer off and said," I think I should leave now."

" Your clothes are still drying and It's still raining heavily outside so why don't you just stay here tonight?" Beth asked.

Scratching his forehead,Songpa asked," Are you sure?"

Beth nodded her head and said," Ya you can sleep on the bed and I'll sleep on the couch."

Songpa frowned and said," No I'll sleep on the couch."

Beth chuckled and said," You are such a big man. It will be difficult for you if you sleep on the couch. It's fine you can sleep on the bed. I am small so I'll fit in here very easily."

" Are you sure?" Songpa asked.

Beth smiled and said," Yes."

After taking out a blanket from the cupboard, Beth placed it on the couch and said," Pass me a pillow please."

Passing her the pillow, Songpa grabbed her hand and said," Goodnight."

Beth smiled and nodded her head.

Walking towards the bed, Songpa quickly covered himself with the quilt and switched off the light.

Both Beth and Songpa kept on tossing and turning all night, not being able to catch any sleep.

Finally after midnight, Songpa got up and said," Beth."

" Hmm."

Songpa shook his head and said," I cannot sleep."

Beth got up and said," Same."

Thinking for quite some time, Songpa asked," Can I hug you to sleep? I promise I won't do anything. I will just hug you."

Beth blushed and lowered her head.

Songpa sighed and said," I am sorry I-" he stopped when he saw Beth grabbing her pillow and walking towards him.

Quickly climbing on the bed, Beth covered herself with the same quilt as his and said," You should sleep it's getting late."

Wrapping his arms around her waist, Songpa pulled her closer and buried his face on her neck.

Beth's body stiffened when she felt his warm breath against her neck.

" Songpa." Beth said.

" Hmm."

" I won't be able to sleep if you do this." Beth said.

Lifting his head up, Songpa asked," Do what?"

Turning towards him, Beth buried her face on his neck and asked," Well if I do this, will you be able to sleep?"

Tightening his grip around her, Songpa said in a deep voice," Don't move. Just stay like this."

" Songpa I-"

" Ssssh just sleep." Songpa said before kissing her forehead.

Beth smiled and slowly closed her eyes.

As Beth and Songpa were sleeping enjoying each other's warmth, two people were frowning and complaining about how uncomfortable the car seat was.


[ 4 weeks leap]


Yufan and Ling were busy packing their bags. After staying at the States for almost three and a half weeks, they decided to return back to country S as Father Xie kept on pestering them to return as he was not being able to handle the work pressure

Wrapping his arms around her waist, Yufan said," I don't wanna go back."

Ling chuckled and said," You have a big company to run Yufan. You have slacked enough. Now it's time to work hard."

" You'll stay with me right?" Yufan asked.

Ling nodded her head and said," Yes I will but I'll stay at home for two or three days."

" Two three days? How will I stay without you?" Yufan asked.

" Stop your drama and quickly pack all the gifts inside that bag." Ling said.

Just then Sebastian entered the room and said," Yufan can I talk to you for a second?"

Yufan nodded his head and left along with Sebastian.



" What is it?" Yufan asked.

" We are not being able to track Jarred. Harred is trying too but we both can't." Sebastian said.

" That means he is not in US." Yufan said.

Sebastian nodded his head and said," Yes."

Yufan sighed and said," Don't worry about him for now."

" Hmm we have to leave at 6." Sebastian said.

Yufan nodded his head and said," Alright now you go and help Dina pack. I'll do the same."


Country S.

Li Mansion.

Caressing her baby bump which was growing very fast, Ming said," Singtan I have go for maternity shopping." Xie Ming had stepped into her fifth month of pregnancy now so it was inconvenient for her to wear her casual dresses.

" Hmm you don't have to go anywhere, I'll bring everything for you." Singtan said.

Ming frowned and said," Even I want to go out."

" But Ming-"

" Now you why are you making my Ming angry?" Grandpa Li asked.

Placing the tray on the table, Rose said," Brother Singtan you shouldn't make sister-in-law angry or sad. Not good for the baby."

" Grandma I want to go for maternity shopping but Singtan is not taking me. He doesn't even allow me to even lift a finger these days." Ming complained.

Grandma Li helplessly shook her head and said," He is just like his grandfather. Singtan pregnant ladies need to do some exercise too. It helps during labour."

Rose nodded her head and said," Yeah that is true."

" She is so clumsy what is she slips and falls?" Singtan asked.

Ming smacked his head and asked," Hey whom are you calling clumsy?"

" Forget about Singtan today grandma will take you for maternity shopping okay." Grandma Li said.

Singtan sighed and said," Fine but don't forget to take the guards with you."

Grandma Li smiled and said," I am equal to ten of your weak and fragile guards my dear grandson."

" Still Grandma take the guards with you." Singtan said.

" Rose do you wanna join us?" Ming asked.

Rose nodded her head and said," Yes sure. I'll take Ben with us too. He wanted new toys."

" Ming call Anna and Yixi as well." Grandma Li said.

Ming nodded her head and said," Singtan call them for me please."

Singtan nodded his head and quickly called Mike and Yutang.
