Chapter 1617: Going Into Labor
Afterward, Shen Yin frequently gazed outside, sending Mu Ya to school in the morning and returning home with him in the afternoon.
Her work at the bar had ended. Even though she had only worked for a little more than two weeks, the manager probably gave face to Winston and gave her an entire month’s worth of salary.
Every day she would sit in the library opposite and watch as the shop underwent a renovation, not finding it boring.
As there was sufficient manpower at the shop, the renovation was swiftly completed in just three days. After that, they just had to tie up some loose ends and clean up.
Shen Yin glanced at the shop, then at her phone. School would end in just an hour’s time.
She suddenly felt a violent pain in her tummy, causing her face to crumple instantly. Holding a hand to her stomach, she curled up on the chair.
The bouts of pain became increasingly intense, causing Shen Yin’s face to turn pale.
Was this some sort of a medical emergency? Was she going to die?
In the past, Shen Yin wasn’t afraid of death. But now, it wasn’t easy for her to finally obtain happiness. No matter what, she couldn’t bear to die just like that.
She decided to go to the hospital first. Though, she wondered if the money she had earned from her part-time job was sufficient.
As she pondered, she stood up with much difficulty, propping her hand against the table. After which, she staggered out.
By the time she got to the school entrance, Shen Yin could no longer walk. She leaned against the school gate to rest.
Shen Yin looked into the school. As she gazed at the cla.s.sroom of Year 3 Cla.s.s 5, her vision was blurred by cold sweat, and she couldn’t focus.
Clenching her teeth, she searched for Mu Ya’s phone number.
She felt like she couldn’t walk anymore. Besides, in which direction was the hospital located?
Should she call him?
Forget it. She decided not to bother him while he was in cla.s.s.
Shen Yin finally skipped over Mu Ya’s name and called the number saved under “Mommy” in her contact list.
In the villa, Bai Qingqing slammed the door with a “bam” and dashed down the stairs.
Curtis, Parker, and Muir followed her out one after the other. Parker shouted, “Qingqing, where are you going? Who called?”
Bai Qingqing ran to the porch in one breath and said as she changed her shoes, “The matter I was most worried about still happened.”
“What is it?” asked Parker.
After putting on her shoes, Bai Qingqing urged, “If you’re coming, hurry. Shen Yin must be pregnant and is about to give birth now. Eh! I said I should remind them. It’s just that she had only just arrived at our home and I was too embarra.s.sed to bring up the subject. How would I have known that they’d do it so fast?”
If she were two days late, wouldn’t she have unknowingly become a grandmother?
Wait, she was about to become a grandmother? Ooh… she suddenly felt old.
For the three males, who still had the mentality of one who lived in the beastmen world, their first instinct was: Shen Yin is incredible.
It was only when they thought about the modern age’s population that they calmed down.
In order to save s.p.a.ce, Curtis and Parker didn’t go, leaving just Muir and Bai Qingqing to fetch her in a car.
Mu Ya felt stifled in his heart for no reason, and he suddenly started worrying about Shen Yin. When the bell for the end of cla.s.s finally rang, he immediately gave her a call.
The phone rang for 10 seconds, but no one picked up. Unable to stay calm anymore, Mu Ya ran out right away.
“Where are you going? We still have another period!” Mu Hai shouted.
Mu Ya anxiously halted, turned his head, and said, “Help me apply for leave. I’m feeling unwell.”
Having said that, without waiting for his brother’s reply, Mu Ya sprinted out of the cla.s.sroom.
When his call was finally picked up, before Mu Ya could catch his breath, he had only called out “Yinyin” when he heard his mother’s voice.
“Hurry up and come home. Little Yin’s about to give birth.”
Mu Ya froze in his tracks.
“Mom, what are you talking about?” Mu Ya stood still like a block of wood and asked dazedly.
Just from the voice alone, Bai Qingqing could imagine her son’s expression at the moment. She urged, “Just come home as quick as you can!”
