“That’s not a possibility.” Ah Luo stubbornly refused to accept it.
“I can tell you that I’m confident that I can save the baby. I lied to Prince Zi. But if the baby is saved, your lady will die for sure when the baby is born.”
“I won’t hear it. I want both my lady and the baby to live.” Ah Luo covered her ears, as if she wouldn’t hear another word from Mr. Xiao.
“What an obstinate kid. What am I going to do with you?”
Mr. Xiao stood up and checked the furnace. He then took out the medicinal pill that was inside and placed it in a black box. “Take this. Don’t forget: while the baby will live after your lady takes the pill, she will die for sure after labor.”
Ah Luo accepted the pill and rushed to Gu Bailu’s room.
Mr. Xiao’s expression was indecipherable as he watched her run off.
He had reminded them in every way he could; he couldn’t be blamed if anything happened.
Ah Luo gave the pill to Feng Qingtian and said, “My lord, here’s the pill.”
Feng Qingtian picked up the pill and asked, “Why isn’t Mr. Xiao here?”
“He said that my lady will die after labor if she takes this pill. I don’t believe it. My lady won’t die. Just give it to her,” Ah Luo firmly urged Feng Qingtian.
Feng Qingtian stared at her for a long time, before he asked, “Are you sure?”
“My lady won’t die. Just hurry up.”
Holding the pill in his hand, Feng Qingtian couldn’t make up his mind about feeding it to Gu Bailu.
Since Mr. Xiao was so certain, this pill definitely had side effects.
Between the baby and Gu Bailu, Feng Qingtian would choose Gu Bailu without any hesitation.
He put the pill in the box and said, “I’ll give it to her later. You get out first.”
Looking at the pill in the box, Ah Luo demanded childishly, “Why won’t you give it to her? My lady is going to lose the baby.”
“No, it’s fine. Even if it’s gone, we can still create another one.”
He signaled to Ye Ying, who took Ah Luo away.
Feng Qingtian put the box next to Gu Bailu’s pillow and kissed her. “Wake up. Let’s discuss if we should have this baby.”
Gu Bailu seemed to have heard him. Her long eyelashes trembled, and she slowly opened her eyes. “Honey…”
Feng Qingtian grabbed her hand and said, “I’m right here. How do you feel?”
“What happened to me? The world was spinning all of a sudden.” Gu Bailu was still dizzy, but she was awake.
“You fainted.” Feng Qingtian stroked her hair and said, “It was my fault. I didn’t protect you well.”
“How did I faint? My body has always been fine.” Gu Bailu was confused.
It couldn’t have been because of Qian’er’s Dragon Spirit Blood. She had personally watched Qian’er cut her neck and pour her the blood.
“I haven’t investigated it yet, but somebody must be behind all this. Everything is fine now, except that the baby…” Feng Qingtian felt Gu Bailu clutch his hand as she asked anxiously, “What about the baby? Is it gone?”
Feng Qingtian hurriedly calmed her down. “Don’t get excited, lie down.”
“What happened to the baby?”
Gu Bailu reached out to touch her belly, only to find that it was full of silver needles. She must’ve almost died just now.
Why else would there be so many silver needles in her?
“You’ll lose the baby if you don’t take the pill within four hours.” Feng Qingtian clenched his fists, unwilling to say the rest out loud.
It made him feel more frustrated than ever before.
He finally realized how important the power which he had given up was.
