Chapter 8: Not Allowed to Abort the Baby

At the moment he came in, Lin Xiyu only felt as if a cold breath had been poured into her, her breath almost stalled. In front of Lu Junting, she always felt nervous unconsciously, she felt that others were about the same as her. This person had an oppressive aura, and people without courage really could not cope with themselves in front of him.

“How long have you been waiting?” Lu Junting came in to see her and asked as he took his suit jacket off and sat on the couch across from her.

Lin Xiyu tried to make her expression look less stiff, and she smiled, “Not for long.”

When the secretary lady brought in the brewed tea, Lu Junting asked, “Why don’t you prepare something for Miss Lin to drink?”

His tone was a little harsh, and the secretary lady was startled and said hurriedly, “I had asked Miss Lin, and she said no need.”

Lu Junting looked at her, and Lin Xiyu immediately nodded. “I’m the one who doesn’t want it.”

Lu Junting did not say anything more, and the secretary lady was relieved, put down the tea cup and went out. Lu Junting slowly poured a cup of tea, he took a sip of tea and asked her, “Looking for me for something?”

Lin Xiyu did not know how to say this matter. Lu Junting waited for a while without hearing her speak, he raised his eyes to glance at her, and saw her biting her lips and rubbing the corners of her clothes with her hand, she was obviously nervous.

“Why don’t you say it?” Lu Junting asked again.

Lu Junting’s office was very spacious, but Lin Xiyu always felt afraid to be alone with him, and she did not know why, she was afraid of this person, and she still felt depressed even in this spacious atmosphere. She had thought about this matter to tell him, but because of this depressing feeling, she momentarily did not know how to open her mouth to speak for a while. She could not even figure out now how she’d jumped on him that day, how she’d had the nerve to bite his lip.

“I…” Lin Xiyu handed him the lab’s test result in her bag.

Lu Junting took a glance at it, but did not understand and asked, “What is this?”

Lin Xiyu lowered her head and said, “I’m pregnant.”

Lu Junting’s action of holding the cup and preparing to drink tea paused, and his gaze fell on her, hesitating for about three seconds, and then staring at the lab test’s paper again. He lowered the cup in his hand in a very slow motion, and his body subconsciously sat on the back of the chair as he stared at the girl opposite him, his expression was unpredictable and obscure, “How long has it been?”
“7 weeks.” Lin Xiyu’s tone had a kind of crying tone, she was really close to tears, the tip of her nose was sore and her eyes were unconsciously bubbling red, she said, “I don’t know why this happened, I obviously took the medicine, I didn’t know what to do so I could only come to you.”

He was silent for a while and said, “The contraceptive pill can’t achieve 100% guarantee, and failure is not uncommon.”

The little girl lowered her head and he could not see her expression clearly. Lu Junting looked at her slightly but saw that her eyes were red, and her nose twitched. Lu Junting asked, “Are you crying?”

Lin Xiyu slowly raised her head, shook her head and said, “No.”

Her eyes that were covered in red had crystalline tears shining in them, and it looked more and more wet, revealing a weak sense of innocence. The tip of her nose and her mouth were also red. She licked on those lips and it became even fuller and more lustful.

Lu Junting took a sip of tea, his eyes naturally moved away from her face, and his other hand subconsciously tugged at his tie a few times.
After drinking the tea, he put down his teacup and asked her, “What are your plans? Tell me about it.”

“I… I want to abort the child.”

“Abort?” Lu Junting’s gaze tightened slightly.

Lin Xiyu nodded, “I only graduated this year, and my job has not yet stabilized. I have no way to take care of this child, I can only choose to abort the child.”

Lu Junting leaned back on his chair, one of his elbow leaned against the sofa armrest, while the other hand was placed on the overlapping knees casually, with his fingers tapped on his knee.

She said in a firm tone, “This child had to be aborted.”


“Brother Junting, can you please help me out and contact the hospital for me? And I also don’t have that much money on me… I can’t ask Aunt Yao for the money, she will definitely ask me what I use it for.”
Lu Junting was silent. Lin Xiyu looked at him with a nervous face. This matter was just a lift of a finger to him, he would help her with this, right? This child also had his part.

Lu Junting pondered for a while and then said to her, “Why don’t you choose to give birth to the child?”

Lin Xiyu was shocked by him. She was really surprised that he would mention this, she looked uncertain and asked, “Brother Junting, are you joking? How can this child be born?”

Lu Junting said, “I’m not joking with you, you don’t have to worry about you having to work and not being able to take care of the child. The child of the Lu family won’t be left unattended.”


He had a serious expression on his face and obviously would not joke with her about it, he actually wanted her to give birth to the child?

“How can this child be born? He was originally an accident. What will people think of this child when this child is born? That he is the product of this child’s parents’ drunken-sex? He wasn’t supposed to exist in the first place. Not to mention that my parents were respected during their lifetime, and I’m afraid that someone will poke this matter that I’m pregnant out of wedlock in the back and say that my parents had ‘failed to educate their daughter and ruin the family.’”

Lin Xiyu was also anxious, pitter-patter, to keep this conversation going.

Lu Junting looked at her quietly, a faint anger surfaced under his eyes, and the tone of his voice was a bit cold, “Is this Lu Junting’s child so shameful?”

He was right, this child was indeed his, but the words ‘this Lu Junting’s child’ from his mouth made her feel a strange feeling, as if there was an ambiguity inadvertently bumping into her.

Lu Junting added, “If you mind being pregnant out of wedlock, we can get married first.”

Lin Xiyu: “...”

Hearing this, Lin Xiyu was not only shocked, she was completely frightened. He did not think much of it and casually mentioned marrying her, the two of them getting married?

What kind of marriage when they did not even know each other well? That night was nothing more than an accident! What was he thinking?

One was unconsciously seducing the other party because she drank wine, and the other had a normal physiological reaction, and he did not hold back in the face of seduction, but it was just a short-term love affair. How could marriage be mentioned because of that?

She felt that Lu Junting was crazy.

“Brother Junting, you… what are you thinking? Things like marriage aren’t just a casual thing.” Too shocked, Lin Xiyu’s tone of voice was messed up.

Lu Junting’s tone was still calm, “You also saw that my grandparents frequently urged me to get married. I’m usually too busy at work, and I really don’t have the energy to fall in love, to develop and to talk about marriage. Since we have the child now, we might as well just get married, saving a lot of procedures, and I don’t have to be bothered by them all the time.”

If that was the reason, she could understand it. A man like Lu Junting only talked about efficiency. He had too many important things to do, he did not hide his ambition in the market, he was strategic, had great talent, and marriage and children were just an insignificant little thing in his life.

Since there was a ready-made one and a child, it was convenient to use it to deal with elders.

However, Lin Xiyu was different from him. She felt that marriage was the most important thing in a person’s life, and must be with the person they liked. There was no feeling between them, they would not be happy after marriage, if they gave birth to the child, the child whose parents were not in love would not live happily.

Therefore, Lin Xiyu flatly refused, “It was just an accident, and I really can’t afford to sacrifice the happiness of two people.”

“Do you still want to abort the child?”

Lin Xiyu nodded her head.

Lu Junting did not express his opinion, he pondered for a moment and then said, “Maybe we have different views on marriage, it’s understandable that you don’t want to sacrifice your happiness for a child, it’s fine if you don’t want to marry me, but I want to keep this child.”


“You can resign temporarily, I can be responsible for your future living expenses, and I can help you arrange your job after having the child later, and even if you want to study abroad, I can also help.”


“Of course, you can also mention your conditions, as long as you can keep this child, I can agree to any conditions you want.”


His expression was serious, and she also did not know if he did the same when he negotiated with other people in business. Lin Xiyu knew very well that he was not joking with her, he was really here for real and he wanted to keep this child.
