Chapter 1975: Your Wife’s Health Is a Priority

The transfusion tube attached to her hand was yanked away by her sudden movement.

Shen Luo’an clearly saw blood seeping out from the back of her hand.

Shocked, he quickly handed the child to her and said, “He’s here, he’s here. Don’t be afraid.”

It was unclear whether he was intimidated by Shen Manting, or something else was bothering him.

Tears burst forth from the infant, who, before this, seemed to be on the verge of crying.

His voice had already turned hoarse. Now it sounded helpless and pathetic.

Shen Manting’s eyes turned red. She held her son close to her face and gently rubbed against his face.

“Don’t cry, Little Moon.”

Shen Luo’an looked at the back of her hand and cautioned, “Your hand is attached to the transfusion tube. Try to stay still.”

“Go away!”

Shen Manting recoiled from him, tearing away the adhesive affixed to the needle connected to the transfusion tube.

Blood spread across the back of her hand. Shen Luo’an became even more worried.

But he didn’t lean closer to her. He quickly pressed the call bell at the head of the bed.

The nurse arrived soon after. She frowned when she saw the back of Shen Manting’s hand and admonished her, “What are you doing? Dicing with death, are you? How are you going to care for your child if your blood vessel ruptures?”

She reached for the medical equipment as she spoke.

She looked up and saw that Shen Manting was still holding the infant.

The nurse looked incredulous and scoffed impatiently, “What are you still staring at? Carry the child. Can’t you see your wife is bleeding?”

Upon hearing this, Shen Luo’an moved forward a little.

He tried to reach out for the baby, but Shen Manting clutched him tightly in her arms.

The infant’s chilling wails sent shivers down one’s spine.

The nurse finally understood the situation.

It wasn’t that the father was unwilling to hold the infant – the mother was unwilling to pass it to him in the first place!

“You can carry your baby as often as you like after this. But if your hand is injured, you won’t be able to hold him anymore.”

The nurse took a look at the back of her hand. Blood was dripping from her flesh. She clicked her tongue and teased, “Looks like you’re ready to give up on your hand, aren’t you? When your baby grows up and asks what happened to your hand, what will you say?”

Her provocative threats were exaggerated.

Yet, Shen Manting seemed frightened.

She released the infant slightly. The wailing slowly subsided.

Shen Luo’an hurried forward and picked up the baby.

He gently pacified the infant as a decent father and husband should.

Shen Manting saw it as a hypocritical act. She sneered and straightened her arm.

Drops of blood dripped onto the linen. The nurse furrowed her brow and sighed. “The linen wouldn’t have been soiled if you didn’t start a fight right here in the ward, much less fight in front of the child. Even if you feel your anger boiling over, never lose your temper in front of your child. You think children are oblivious to all this? They might not understand what has happened, but they never forget.”

Neither Shen Manting nor Shen Luo’an spoke.

When the nurse was done, she fixed the drip to Shen Manting’s other hand.

“Don’t ruin it. It’s the last pack. Behave yourself.” The nurse turned to glance at Shen Luo’an. “Keep an eye on your wife. This is the last pack of drip solution we have left. No more quarreling. Mind your wife’s health above all else.”

“Thank you.” Shen Luo’an murmured.

He shifted his gaze to Shen Manting and found her lying down.

The infant almost stopped crying and fell silent.

His eyes, still moist with tears, were wide open. His beady, round eyes bore an uncanny resemblance to Shen Manting’s.

“Are you hungry? I’ll get you something to eat.”

They didn’t eat much during lunch.

Shen Manting must be hungry after throwing such a fit.

However, Shen Manting didn’t answer.

Shen Luo’an suddenly realized something.

In case he went to buy food, would Shen Manting sneak away with the infant?
