T/L: Fleeting Cloud E/D: Spirit Song and Lie
“Relax, the police will follow up on their investigation of the will forgery.” Fu Sinian looked at Qin Shao with knives hidden in his eyes. His posture was relaxed and leisurely as he didn’t regard the man in front of him as his biggest enemy. “If someone is behind all of this, it won’t be long before he is exposed.”
Qin Shao coldly watched the two echo one another and the coldness in his eyes became more and more intense.
Seeing that things weren’t going well, Chen Lu hurriedly said, “What Mrs. Fu said is true. One should have an honest and kind heart. Chen Lu has learned new things today. I’d like to offer Mrs. Fu a toast.”
Seeing that Yu Duo’s hand was empty, Chen Lu called a waiter, took a glass of champagne and handed it to Yu Duo.
Yu Duo had been drinking juice the whole time. She really didn’t want to drink the glass of champagne before her eyes.
“Mrs. Fu? What’s the matter?”
Yu Duo suddenly thought of retching earlier during the day and became hesitant.
But it’s just a glass of wine, shouldn’t it be okay?
Just as she was about to pick it up, Fu Sinian gave her a glass of juice. “She is in poor health and should not drink.”
He refused simply and unkindly.
Chen Lu’s wine glass was held in the air and she withdrew it awkwardly.
“Mr. Fu loves Mrs. Fu so much that he won’t even let Mrs. Fu drink a glass of wine. Then Mr. Fu will have to drink two more drinks tonight.”
“This is what a husband should do.”
Several people smiled and toasted along, and nothing else happened until the banquet was over.
Yu Duo hadn’t sipped any wine all night, but Fu Sinian, regardless of his physical injury, drank a lot. Now they were on their way home. He leaned on the back seat with his eyes closed. From his shallow breathing, he seemed to have fallen asleep.
When the car stopped at a traffic intersection and waited for the red light to turn green, Yu Duo saw a pharmacy in front of the intersection. She thought of the vomiting in the morning and the menstrual period that had not come for two months. She tentatively asked: “Sinian?”
Fu Sinian seemed to be really asleep, ignoring Yu Duo.
Upon seeing this, Yu Duo whispered to the driver Xiao Zhang: “Xiao Zhang, stop at the pharmacy ahead. I’ll get off to buy some medicine for Sinian.”
The car passed the intersection after the green light and then stopped in front of the pharmacy.
Yu Duo carefully pulled the car door, closed it softly, and quickly walked toward the roadside pharmacy.
“What can I do for you, miss?”
The pungent smell of medicine entered Yu Duo’s nasal cavity, making her hold her breath for a moment. She thought for a moment and said, “My husband has an open wound and drank some wine. Please give me some anti-inflammatory medicine, gauze and…”
Yu Duo said with a smile to the shop assistant who was listening attentively, “Pregnancy test kit.”
Yu Duo brought the anti-inflammatory drugs and gauze from the pharmacy back to the car. Fu Sinian was already awake. His bow tie was loosen and hung around the neck. The topmost two buttons were open, exposing a section of sturdy and powerful muscles under the dim lighting in the car. Just when she got into the car, those clear eyes without a trace of intoxication stared at Yu Duo.
Yu Duo was shocked and the hand carrying the plastic bag clasped the handbag due to tension. The plastic bag rattled.
“What did you buy?”
