Feng Qingtian let go of him and shouted, “Go!”
At the door, Mr. Xiao paused before he turned around. “If she’s sacrificed, the baby’s chance of survival will be 20% higher. Would you like that?”
Feng Qingtian lashed out with his fist and shouted, “Get lost!”
Mr. Xiao was flung out into the yard. He smiled and went to prepare the herbs.
Qian’er knelt by the door, not daring to make a sound.
How did this happen? Miscarriage? She never planned to hurt Gu Bailu.
She would never hurt her.
Feng Qingtian sat on the floor next to the bed and stared silently at Gu Bailu, who had needles all over her.
He was useless. As mighty as his real, spiritual power was, he never protected her well.
Now, in his own house, she had been hurt again.
Feng Qingtian stroked her face, knowing how devastated she would be if she lost the baby.
She hadn’t been in the best mood recently, and it would only be worse if the baby died.
Although they had evaded divine retribution, he knew that the punishment from the heavens had yet to end.
He was so naive to think that everything would be fine after he fooled the divine retribution.
They were human beings, and the heavens could change their fates at will!
Rage surged in Feng Qingtian’s heart. People thought that he was strong, but he knew that he was too weak.
If he hadn’t absorbed the ball of memories, none of this would’ve happened.
He shouldn’t have absorbed it.
He should’ve waited until all the pieces of the Sky Splitting Mirror had been gathered together.
He shouldn’t have been with her so early. The tragedy of their previous life would only happen again when he couldn’t protect her.
Feng Qingtian was full of regret and felt helpless. He didn’t know what to do.
He couldn’t bear to let go of Gu Bailu, but if he didn’t, she would be in danger.
Feng Qingtian simply sat in silence, and nobody in the room dared to say anything. They simply waited for him to speak.
Ye Ying, Ye Hua and Qian’er were all waiting for his pronouncement that would decide their fates.
Feng Qingtian, on the other hand, was waiting on the fates of his woman and baby.
He couldn’t care less about other people’s fates at that moment.
Ah Luo remained silent. She couldn’t figure out how anything could have happened to her lady when she went out to dispose of the questionable tea.
She hadn’t protected her lady well. She decided to punish herself by not having meat for three days.
Ah Luo got up and went to check Mr. Xiao’s progress.
But to her surprise, Mr. Xiao wasn’t making pills at all, but was contentedly playing chess on his own.
Ah Luo barged in and swept the chess pieces off the board. “You said that you would be making pills!”
Mr. Xiao looked at her calmly and took out another set of chess pieces. “The pill is being made. I don’t have to watch over the process the whole time. However… Ah Luo, let me ask you: If the baby lives, your lady will die. Which result would you prefer?”
“My lady will not die, and neither will her baby,” said Ah Luo firmly.
The look on her face clearly implied that she would punch Mr. Xiao if he said anything ominous.
Mr. Xiao tapped her head and said, “I’m only putting forward a possibility…”
