Chapter 1550: Getting Married
After Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai said this, Bai Qingqing suddenly felt unexplainable grief over this fake breakup.
Winston was probably feeling sad, too.
The house suddenly felt quiet. Bai Qingqing took a deep breath, forced a smile, then said, “Weren’t you guys worried that I might get into a mishap if I were with him? Isn’t this good, then? You guys don’t have to be worried anymore.”
After she said that, Daddy Bai and Mommy Bai instantly stopped persuading her.
“You’re still young and will have plenty of chances. Just don’t be so willful in the future,” Mommy Bai said.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “I know.”
Over the past few years, Winston’s underground business had been constantly expanding. Not only had he grasped a large number of firearms, but he also had dealings with some government officials. The deputy mayor, whom Muir had helped to link him up with and who was also Zhang Xin’s father, was someone whom Winston often had dealings with.
Other than smuggling and private possession of firearms, Winston didn’t get involved with any other things that were against the law. Moreover, he also helped the police to apprehend escaped convicts from behind the scenes, keeping crime rates under control.
The higher officials gave him a lot of conveniences, such as three legal ident.i.ty cards as well as keeping one eye closed to some of his transactions.
There were mutual benefits to both sides, forming a win-win situation.
Separately, Winston also invested and held shares in a newly-opened hospital, bringing in the latest medical facilities worldwide. It made this hospital the best in the city—allowing Bai Qingqing to have a body checkup at any time.
Take today for example. Bai Qingqing didn’t have to queue when she went to the hospital for B-scan ultrasonography. She just went straight for her private consultation room and the head of the gynecology department did the checkup for her.
“How is it?” Looking at the image on the apparatus’s screen, Bai Qingqing asked hesitantly. This was despite going through such a psychological process two times.
After ascertaining that there were multiple fetuses in the past two times, she stopped coming and stayed at home, waiting to give birth.
Right now, she was only four weeks pregnant and wasn’t suitable to go under a B-scan ultrasonography. However, since her situation was special, she could only come to check things out first.
Seated next to Bai Qingqing, Curtis suddenly tightened his grip on her hand, saying agitatedly, “It’s a girl.”
“Huh?” The department head was stunned, then immediately broke into a smile. “It’s not possible to tell if it’s a boy or a girl at such an early phase. The fetus’s development is very normal. Miss Bai can be at ease and take care of the baby. You can come for another scan when you’re in the third month of your pregnancy.”
The department head only took it as if Bai Qingqing had frequent fetal anomalies, and when he saw that the fetus development was normal, he really felt happy for her.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. She finally didn’t have to give birth anymore. It was really nice to be pregnant with a female child on the final one.
When she saw the department head’s expression, she was instantly stunned. Could she say that Curtis had only looked at the number of babies shown through the scan? If they were snake eggs, then they’d probably look like a bunch of grapes.
Winston, Muir, and Parker were all standing at the side. When they heard this result, the three of them each had different expressions.
Muir had always been with his mate without changing his initial intention. He felt very thankful to be able to be with her like this.
Of course, Parker would definitely find this hard to accept, but at the thought of that bunch of strong leopard cubs in the zoo, he felt happy too. If he were to have a female child, he wouldn’t have the chance to bring the kids to climb trees and play.
Winston was the one who minded it the least. He had a female child with Qingqing before, so it seemed perfect to have a nest of tiger cubs now. He had enjoyed being Qingqing’s boyfriend for five years. If he were to marry her, the balance between them would be broken and a war would be inevitable.
Therefore, things were good like this.
After walking out of the hospital, Bai Qingqing let out a long exhale and said to Curtis, “Alright, let’s go back and meet my parents. We’ll be getting married!”
Curtis smiled, then turned and threw a meaningful gaze at the three males seated in the back pa.s.senger seats. “We’ll be going home. You guys can take your leave now.”
Fuming, Parker opened the door with brute force before walking out. Winston and Muir also complied and got off.
Curtis held onto Bai Qingqing’s hand with one hand and then drove off.
