Chapter 7 I’ve Been Tolerating You for a Long Time
The fireworks exploded like a dream.
But, one was bound to wake up from a dream.
By the time Lan Hupo turned around, the pickup truck was gone.
In its place, was a familiar Lamborghini.
In the darkness of the night, it looked like a monster that could jump out to bite her at any moment.
“Lan Hupo, do you know that person?” the young man asked as he stared into Ke Beichen’s eyes and trembled a little. The man looked familiar and his presence was powerful.
“Get in the car,” Ke Beichen said as he opened the car door and pulled Hupo inside. He then locked the door with the remote in his hand.
“Ke Beichen, open the door. Open the door and let me out.”
But, the response she received was a frightening fight outside the car window.
Lan Hupo never knew that Ke Beichen could fight so well when he was angry.
Within 3 minutes, the young man that had accompanied her all night was lying defeated on the sandy beach, barely breathing.
Meanwhile, Ke Beichen turned around calmly, walked around to the driver’s seat and boarded the Lamborghini. From beginning to end, he was like a noble prince that had graced the beach with his presence.
“Ke Beichen, you agreed to let me go on a date.”
“You can only go on a date with me,” Ke Beichen said domineeringly.
“I wanted it to be you, but you left. Ke Beichen, let me out, I need to find a doctor to check on him.”
“Don’t even think about it.”
“Hehe, haha…” As she listened to Ke Beichen’s cold response, Hupo suddenly burst into laughter. “He saved me from my loneliness and accompanied me on my birthday. If anything is to happen to him, then I will join him.” With a loud thud, Hupo rammed her head against the Lamborghini’s window.
Unfortunately, the windows of this kind of luxury car couldn’t be damaged even if she used all her strength. Instead, her head began to bleed.
“You jealous woman. Do you dislike me being with Qinqin this much?” Ke Beichen yelled as he slammed on the brakes.
Hupo gently lifted her head and wiped away the blood from the corner of her lips with her finger. She then said softly, “Do you like seeing me set off fireworks with him?”
Ke Beichen’s throat stiffened, unable to say a word. He simply walked around to the other side of the car and pulled the woman into his embrace so she could no longer hit herself against the car. At the same time, he called the ambulance and told them to take away the man that was lying on the beach.
This was his only compromise. Nothing else.
After that, their days returned to normal.
But, Hupo’s stomach grew larger and larger.
Since the wedding date was set, Ke Beichen stopped having supper with Meng Qinqin as often as he used to. As for anything to do with the wedding, he arranged for them to be done during the day.
Wedding photos, invitations, etc, went ahead accordingly.
But, Ke Beichen returned on time every night to keep Hupo company.
He had dinner with her.
He went on strolls with her.
He read parenting books with her.
Then, at the end of the day, he would place his hand on her stomach and fall asleep by her side.
He didn’t like it when Hupo was quiet, but that was the hardest thing for him to control.
He could order her not to die and not to abort the child, but her smile was something that he couldn’t force.
Even when he managed to force a smile from her, her smile was uglier than crying.
If that was how she smiled, then it didn’t matter if she never smiled again.
At that time, something went wrong with Ke Beichen’s company overseas, so he left on a business trip and was due to return around the time of his wedding with Meng Qinqin.
Early in the morning, Hupo was having a stroll in the garden when a red Maserati pulled up outside the villa.
Meng Qinqin stormed in arrogantly and threw a slap across her face, “Lan Hupo, since your mother was a mistress, did you inherit her shamelessness? Must you tear apart someone else’s marriage? Lan Hupo, I’ve been tolerating you for a long time.”
