Weekly release, still long way to go to finish this novel.
Chapter 9: Marry Me and Give Birth to the Child

However, she really did not understand why.

Lin Xiyu was puzzled and asked, “What are you doing by keeping this child? You will get married later, and if you have a child, others might mind.”

Lu Junting said, “I don’t want to consider marriage at present, and I’ve heard that abortion is not only very harmful to the pregnant woman, but also to the child. The child body has to be churned and dug out one by one, I, Lu Junting, can’t do something so cruel to kill my child, so I want to keep the child.”

“...”

How did this sound so strange? As if she was a ruthless person, who wanted to brutally kill the child.

“Your parents have spent their whole lives running for children who have been abandoned by their parents and have saved too many unfortunate children in their lives.” He looked at her deeply, “But they can’t save their grandchild.”

“...”

Lu Junting’s words were like a big bell, struck hard in her heart.

“Of course, the final choice is yours, you don’t have to rush to answer me. I give you time to think about it, and after you think about it, you can tell me your answer.”

Lin Xiyu really decided to abort the child at first, but she could not help but hesitate when she heard him say this.

She thought of her parents, who devoted their lives to charity, and opened a lot of welfare homes to help those homeless children, and ran for the construction of welfare homes before the car accident.

If she aborted the child, was it considered a killing sin?

Lin Xiyu finally agreed to think about it for a while. Lu Junting asked his assistant to send her back to Lu’s home, and before leaving, Lin Xiyu asked for Lu Junting’s contact information, which would be convenient for contact in the future.

In these two days, Lin Xiyu was very worried, she struggled to death, whether to keep this child or not, if not would it be counted as her killing sin? If she kept it… She felt awkward at the thought of having to give birth to her and Lu Junting’s child.

Anyway, she would not marry Lu Junting. Their concept of marriage and love was not the same. He got married just to give an account to the elders, but she was different, she felt that marriage was between two people who loved each other to support each other and grow old. If she met a man she particularly liked in the future, if she had a child with another man, she felt that it was not fair to that man either.
Thinking about it, she felt that this child could not be kept. She went to the Internet again to check the details of the abortion. She was not pregnant for too long, and this was still an embryo that had not yet developed a human form, so she should not be considered a murder. 

After deciding, she called Lu Junting, and Lu Junting picked up the phone very quickly.

“Brother Junting?”

“It’s me.” Through the phone, his voice sounded mellow.

Lin Xiyu took a deep breath and said, “I have thought about it, I still want to abort this child.”

There was a long silence from the other end of the phone, and Lin Xiyu asked tentatively, “Brother Junting, are you listening?”

“Why?”

It took a moment for his voice to come through, and his tone was slightly deeper.

For Lu Junting, keeping the child was for the sake of passing on the generations, but for Lin Xiyu, keeping this child will bring her a lot of trouble. Lin Xiyu was very sensible, she knew that this child could not be kept.

Lin Xiyu said, “This was originally an accident, I just want to return to my normal life quickly. I have just entered the society, and at present I only need to think about work, I don’t want to think about anything else. I’ve also checked, this child is still in early months, and hasn’t formed yet, it’s just an embryo, not as cruel as brother Junting said.”

“You’ve thought this through?”

“En, I've thought it through.”

The atmosphere suddenly fell silent. Although Lu Junting did not stand in front of her, Lin Xiyu inexplicably felt as if the surroundings had suddenly become cold, and she unconsciously began to get nervous.

Lin Xiyu thought for a moment and added, “Brother Junting, didn’t you say that the final decision on this matter is mine?”

At this time, Lu Junting stood in front of the french window outside his office, one had in his pocket, and the other hand holding the phone, the afterglow of the sunset fell on him. His figure was elongated in the afterglow, the orange light fell in his dark eyes, but could not dispel the silent chill under his eyes.

“I know, I will help you contact the hospital as soon as possible, and I’ll pick you up when I do.”

“Okay, thank you brother Junting.”

After hanging up the phone, Lin Xiyu breathed a sigh of relief.

Lu Junting hung up the phone, squinted his eyes slightly, and looked at the sunset outside the window. The afterglow among the oblique skimming the shadow of a few birds of prey, the lonely hovered above, the sky was far and wide, and the figure of the bird was a few inconspicuous small gray dots.

He stood for a while, picked up his phone and dialed over, “Hello Dr. Jiang, this is Lu Junting.”

Three days later, Lin Xiyu received a call from Lu Junting.

“I’ve already contacted the hospital for you, I’m coming over to pick you up now?”

Lin Xiyu said, “No need, tell me the address and I’ll go over myself.”

Lu Junting did not force and sent the address to her. Lin Xiyu came to the hospital according to the address, and she knew that this hospital was a private hospital. The hospital was very large, and the consultation fee was expensive.

After Lin Xiyu arrived, she took out her mobile phone to call Lu Junting, and saw Lu Junting’s Maybach slowly driving to the entrance. The car stopped, and the assistant opened the door for him, and Lu Junting got out and walked over to her.

He wore a pure black suit today, even the leather shoes were black. Being set off by the black, his face looked more serious and cold, he walked over with no expression. Lin Xiyu was shocked and even her heartbeat slowed down a few beats.

“Brother Junting.” Lin Xiyu greeted him.

“Let’s go.”

Lin Xiyu followed him into the hospital. The doctor was already contacted by Lu Junting, and the attitude was warm after seeing both of them. “Hello Mr. Lu and Mrs. Lu.”

Lin Xiyu was speechless. Why did she was recognize as Mrs. Lu? She said hurriedly, “You misunderstood, I’m not Mrs. Lu.”

The doctor’s expression was a little embarrassing. He looked at Lu Junting with a helpless expression and Lu Junting said, “This is Miss Lin.”

The doctor laughed and said, “Hello Miss Lin.”

Lin Xiyu was also embarrassed. She was brought by Lu Junting for abortion, and people thought she was his wife.

“Miss Lin, let me check you first.”  After saying this, the doctor said to Lu Junting, “Mr. Lu, please wait a moment.”

Was Lu Junting going to wait here? Lin Xiyu felt a little awkward, and did not want to delay his time, so she rushed to Lu Junting and proposed, “Brother Junting, if you are busy, why don’t you go first?”

Lu Junting sat down on the sofa in the doctor’s reception room and said, “Not busy.”

“......”

He had a tough attitude, so Lin Xiyu did not say anything else.

Lin Xiyu needed to wait for the results after the examination, so she returned to the reception room. Lu Junting was still sitting inside, reading the magazine in his hand. Lin Xiyu sat down on the sofa opposite him, and Lu Junting asked, “How was it?”

“We’ll have to wait for the results.”

If there was nothing wrong with the examination, she would have to go into the operating room. Lin Xiyu was a little nervous about the long and grueling wait.

Lu Junting glanced at her and saw her fidgeting, her hands were tightly rubbing the corners of her clothes, and her lips were pale.

“Scared?” He asked.

His voice echoed in the silent office. The nervous Lin Xiyu got more nervous after he asked that, she was scared but she did not want to say it out loud because that would make her even more scared.

“The result hasn’t come out yet, so if you regret it, it’s not too late.”

Lin Xiyu looked at him, and Lu Junting then said, “The condition I mentioned to you before are still useful now.”

Lin Xiyu hung her head slightly, closed her eyes tightly, and her attitude was resolute, “No, I don’t regret it, this child must be aborted.”

She lowered her head, did not see a trace of cold under Lu Junting’s eyes, and he handed her the magazine in his hand, “You can read this first.”

Lin Xiyu took it with a puzzled face. It turned out this was a popular science magazine, it was about the dangers of miscarriage, how miscarriage could harm the body, and how miscarriage could harm the fetus, illustrated in considerable details. Lin Xiyu even saw a few actual photos of the fetus being churned into a puddle of blood.

Lin Xiyu hurriedly closed the magazine. She was already uneasy, seeing this photo made it even worse. She looked towards Lu Junting with an ugly face, “Why is brother Junting showing me this?”

Lu Junting had a matter-of-fact look on his face, “It’s time to let you know the consequences and weigh the pros and cons.”

What else was there to weigh? It has reached this point, this child must be aborted. He showed her this at this time, did he not feel a little excessive? 

There were suddenly several knocks on the door, and Lin Xiyu’s heart immediately lifted up, looking at the side, it was the doctor who came in.

Lin Xiyu asked hurriedly, “How is the result, doctor?”

The doctor’s expression was a little solemn, “Miss Lin, your condition is nor very optimistic.”

Lin Xiyu’s complexion was a little ashen when she heard this, and asked, “What’s the situation?”

“Your uterine wall is too thin, and you’re pregnant for the first time. There is a high risk of permanent damage from an abortion. SO you will never be able to conceive a child again.”

Lin Xiyu only felt that the sky was spinning. She took a moment to slow down before saying, “Then, what should I do?”

“I suggest that you give birth to this child.”

“......”

When Lin Xiyu and Lu Junting came out of the hospital, her face was pale, she did not choose to do surgery in the end. She did not dare to gamble, in case she really could not have children after doing it, what should she do? She was young now and did not want children, what if she wanted them later? Regret would only be painful.

But to give birth to this child, to give birth to a child with Lu Junting?

“Are you okay?”

Hearing this voice, Lin Xiyu returned to her senses, she shook her head, not wanting to answer at all.

Lu Junting did not bother with her either, and asked, “Do you want to go to another hospital?”

This was the most expensive and best private hospital in Ancheng, the results of the examination here were like this, and the others might be similar. Lin Xiyu did not have the mood to go.

“No need.”

The assistant drove the car over. Lin Xiyu got into the car with Lu Junting, her expression was ugly, her heart was full of fear, fear of the future, fear of the impending big belly, fear of having a baby. Thinking about it, her nose was sour, her eyes were red, and finally she was so aggrieved that she began to sob, and her tears fell down.

Lu Junting, who was sitting next to her, looked at the girl’s tear falling in front of him and was a little confused, a situation he had not encountered before. His face would not change and still calm when facing a contract negotiation of several hundred million dollars, but what to do when a girl cried in front of him, he had no experience.

“Is there tissue in the car?” Lu Junting asked the assistant.

The assistant handed him a packet of tissues. Lu Junting pulled out a tissue and handed it over to the girl. Lin Xiyu took the tissue and wiped it casually, the more she thought about it, the harder it was, and she finally simply covered her face with a tissue and cried.

Lu Junting had a bit of a headache as he asked her, “Do you hate me a lot?”

She looked up at him, choked and said, “Why does brother Junting ask this?”

“If you don’t hate me, why is being pregnant with my child makes you feel so bad?”

“It’s not because of brother Junting, I’m just scared. I just graduated, and my life has just begun. I just want to work well. Occasionally, I can watch movies and catch up on dramas when I’m bored, but now that I’m pregnant, I can’t go to work, I can’t do what I want to do. I don’t want to get pregnant and have a baby so early, I’m not mentally prepared at all, and I heard that giving birth to a baby is very painful.” She cried even more after saying this sentence.

Lu Junting: “...”

Seeing that she was crying so sadly, there was a moment when Lu Junting felt like a bastard, and it was because of him a bastard, had made her pregnant.

He did not know what to do. He was only good at solving problems, so he analyzed the problems she had raised to solve them.

“You don’t have to worry about work, you can quit now and after you have the baby, I can arrange for you to continue working if you want. I will arrange a nanny to take care of this child, and you don’t need to worry about it. You can still do what you like. If you don’t want to go to work, I will give you a fixed living expenses every month to ensure that you live a rich life, but I need to trouble you for this period of pregnancy. As for you saying that giving birth is painful, I’ll help you find the best hospital and I’ll find a way to ease your pain as much as possible.”

His tone did not have the sharpness of his stern temperament when he usually spoke, and his voice was lowered, sounding like he was gently coaxing.

Lu Junting had been served by others, he had grown up accustomed to being sought after by people, and he never had that patience to appease anyone, and today it was all used on her.
