Feng Qingtian kissed her lips and bit them hard. “How could you do this? Do you know how worried I was? What would I do without you?”
He held her tightly in his arms. His fear hadn’t completely disappeared yet.
He couldn’t blame her. His feigned indifference toward her recently must’ve made her feel a lack of security.
That was why she had used Bai Yunyi to piss him off, and had tested him like this.
Gu Bailu stroked his back and said, “It was my bad. Don’t worry. The baby is fine.”
“That’s good.” Feng Qingtian touched her belly and kissed her again.
Gu Bailu, however, was caught up in her complicated feelings. She couldn’t calm down.
The doctor kept asking Feng Qingtian to choose between saving the baby or saving her, but Feng Qingtian never made a decision.
He never said that Gu Bailu had to be saved.
She had never been in a relationship, nor had she ever had a crush on anyone in the modern era. However, in the TV series and novels she had enjoyed, the male protagonist always tried to save the female protagonist at any cost, even including the baby’s life.
But Feng Qingtian never said anything definitive.
Was it so hard for him to make a decision to save her?
Or maybe… he preferred to save the baby?
“Silly girl, don’t make a fuss again. I don’t want to lose either you or the baby. I’ll try my best to save you.”
Gu Bailu hummed gently. Despite Feng Qingtian’s sweet talk, there was no doubt that the baby was very important to him.
She felt somewhat regretful. She had used the wrong trick.
She should’ve simply asked him to come, then tell him that the baby was gone, so that she could see his reaction.
However… That plan might not work either.
He would definitely be upset… Then, he would be nicer to her and make her have another baby.
Actually, it was obvious that he really wanted this baby. He didn’t want to lose it even if she might die.
Gu Bailu’s heart ached slightly when she realized this fact.
She thought that she wouldn’t feel too sad because she wasn’t obsessed with Feng Qingtian.
But the truth was that Feng Qingtian mattered more than she had anticipated.
She felt hurt by his actions.
“I can’t stay. Can you hang in there? I only need two days. I can resolve everything in two days.” Feng Qingtian held her face between his hands and comforted her.
Gu Bailu grabbed his hand and asked, “Can you tell me why I killed the Heavenly Emperor in my previous life?”
“You had your reasons. Don’t dwell too much on the past. What matters is the present. You’ll know everything once you recover your memories.”
Something unnatural flashed in Feng Qingtian’s eyes. He was still unwilling to tell her the reason.
“But I want to know right now. I want to know if I deserve the heavenly and hellish retributions. My life is too depressing right now.” Gu Bailu clung to him stubbornly.
Feng Qingtian kissed her forehead and said, “Two days. Everything will be over in two days. Trust me.”
Gu Bailu knew that he wouldn’t say more.
He was also a stubborn man, who wouldn’t confess anything he was determined not to say.
