CH-3 And it was the last time..
She suddenly felt as if she is floating in air, then the next thing she knew was she was being carried by a young man to the car. In the car, he was sitting next to her but no one talked. “What was there between them to talk about, the contract, that night?” she let a deep breath. She is going to be a mother in 9 months, the thought of being a person who is responsible for the life of another, it was her first time feeling these bittersweet emotions. She can only plant the seeds but can’t see it growing up, although a part of her was always worried about this, she chose to feign ignorance. Now that the countdown has started she was feeling anxious, would she be able to let go? The question in itself was meaningless, of course she had to, she has signed the contract. The first and the most important clause of the contract was to disappear from the life of “He” family, which in future will be her child’s family and she has been paid generously for that.
As she was watching the cars passing by lost in her own thoughts, her right hand was suddenly pulled and a ying yang pendant was placed in her hands.
[ying yang pendant: Two halves that together complete wholeness. Yin and yang are also the starting point for change. When something is whole, by definition, it’s unchanging and complete. So when you split something into two halves – yin/yang, it upsets the equilibrium of wholeness. Both halves are chasing after each other as they seek a new balance with each other.The word Yin comes out to mean “shady side” and Yang “sunny side”.]
“Wear it, My mother used to wear this when she was pregnant, its a family heirloom” he said, his tone was cold but compared to the first time it was more subtle and tolerating. “um” She replied. “Return it after 9 months” and he signaled his secretary to collect it from her. Ms. Xi respectfully nodded her head assuring him that she will take care of it. She knew that it was not hers but why was she feeling so offended.
After a 30 minute journey they reached “the shock villa”, she changed its name from cold villa to shock villa, everytime she is here she will faint, hence in her subconscious mind she named it so. But who knew that she will be spending the nine months of pregnancy in this “shock villa”. As she stepped down from the car, the young handsome man signaled Ms. Xi and she asked Ms. Zhao to come with her. Before taking a step, she looked back at the guy who paid her for her womb and will be the father of her child. He realized the gaze was focused on him, he ordered the driver to drive away. She stood silent, watching the car leaving her like the dust behind. And it was the last time they shared the same sky. Ms. Xi asked her to quickly leave this place as she is allergic to dust. Suddenly she realized that no one except her foster father knows that she is allergic to dust. She asked Ms. Xi who smiled in response. And that smile answered her question. Of course they would do full investigation of a person who is going to give “He” family an heir.
After 8.5 months
As she was a medical student she was well aware of everything that should be done or avoided during pregnancy. They had already taken 9 months off from her college all she had to do was rest and take care of the babies. After the first trimester of pregnancy, Dr. Ming who was her direct supervisor and also her doctor told her that she is pregnant with twins. She was very happy, for the first time in her life she felt that something solely belongs to her. She was excited to welcome her babies in this world, as the days were passing she was getting more and more attached. But this feeling was accompanied by a fear of losing the ones who are now a part of her. But once again she chose to fool herself and let the fate decide it. Everyday she wakes up at 7 o’clock. she would go for a morning walk in front of the villa as it was located in remote area, then return to the garden and talk with flowers and her twins. After taking a shower she finishes her breakfast and then she would read books while lying on her favorite rocking chair, it was the only thing that she liked in that villa. After having lunch she usually sleeps till evening and after waking up she does yoga while lisening to soft music, then dinner and finally she would go to bed at 10 o’clock.
One day she realized that she had not done anything for her child so she should go buy some clothes for them and called Ms. Xi for the permission. She pleaded Ms. Xi to convince Mr. cold guy but she said that he would never let her roam outside the villa. Mo Sheng begged Ms. Xi in hoarse voice as if she is going to cry, Ms. Xi heard her painful voice, a part of her heart melted and decided to let her go but only for 2 hours. She was very excited, she used the money which she saved while working part-time to buy two cute panda baby warmer costume and 2 pair of blue bear socks. She was in hurry to reach home and show it to the servants and ask for their review. But the moment she came out of the huge shopping complex which belonged to “He” group, she felt the pain in her abdomen and she realized that it is the time. She didn’t panic and called 120 for ambulance, after that she dialed the number of Ms. Xi to inform her condition.
After 15 minutes she was in the labor room and she was about to give birth to her second baby. She cried, scratched her soft small hands to bear the pain but it was too much… She was slowly losing consciousness, doctors were repeatedly asking her to stay awake and push with her all might. Suddenly a picture of her mother leaving her flashed in front of her eyes and in that moment she thought that she cannot let her child die, she cannot give up before fighting, she took an oath that this is last time she is being weak, she will never abandon them like her mother did, she will become stronger and always watch over them. She didn’t know whether she was happy or sad as it was the day, when she first touched them and parted from them. Carrying the twins in her both arms, she kissed them and said… Wait for me boys… your mom will surely come back.
Enjoy the song 🙂
