Shen Manting’s heart began racing when she saw the words appearing on the screen of her phone.
She instinctively looked around.
She noticed a figure walking slowly toward her from behind.
The figure was tall and towering, yet appeared considerably thinner than when she last saw him.
He had become thinner.
Much more thinner.
Shen Manting felt a dull ache in her heart, but something in her gut urged her to get up and leave immediately.
Shen Luo’an noticed and picked up his pace, chasing after her.
Shen Manting began running faster when she heard his movements behind her. But her stamina was no match for his.
Shen Luo’an quickly caught up with her and grabbed her hand.
Shen Manting was startled. She immediately jerked her hand away as if she were electrocuted.
However, resistance was futile as he held her hand firmly in a vice-like grip.
“What brings you here?” Shen Luo’an looked at her, frowning. “I told you, it’s too late to regret your decision. Now you’ve returned, yet you run away at the sight of me. What are you trying to do?”
What was she trying to do?
What else could she do?
Shen Manting looked at Shen Luo’an and opened her mouth.
But no words came out.
She wanted to see the child. She wanted to see her child!
There was nothing wrong with her motive!
Yet, for some odd reason, Shen Manting lacked the courage to proclaim it aloud.
Shen Manting drew her hand back and lowered her head. “I was only passing by. I was reminded of this place and decided to have a seat here.”
“Only passing by?” Shen Luo’an thought her response sounded incredulous. “You could’ve walked anywhere in this large capital, yet you passed by here but not any other place? Judging from your current situation, how could you even afford to live here? Isn’t your route of choice a little too deliberate?”
Shen Luo’an’s words pierced her right where it hurt.
Shen Manting felt a stabbing pain in her heart as her eyes began to water.
She drew her hand back and snapped, “This is none of your business. You don’t own this place. Am I bothering you with my choice to take a seat here?”
Shen Luo’an was speechless.
Indeed, he was not bothered at all.
But his emotions spiraled out of control when he first caught sight of her.
No one knew how Shen Luo’an felt as if his heart was going to leap out from his chest the moment he saw her.
He only mustered the courage to send her a message to confirm his observation after watching her from afar for some time.
As soon as he saw her pick up her phone, he walked over to her.
He was afraid that she would call him a psychopath like she did before.
“Do you want to see the child?” Shen Luo’an asked.
Shen Manting felt her heart flutter as she looked up at Shen Luo’an.
But she dared not say another word.
He warned her against regretting her decision.
But she regretted it now, and Shen Luo’an was standing right in front of her…
Shen Manting could imagine that he was going to humiliate her.
“The baby is doing fine,” Shen Luo’an interrupted her. “He’s growing into an adorable child. He’s well-fed. He sleeps well and is staying awake for longer. Don’t worry, I’ll take good care of him.”
He spoke matter-of-factly.
But Shen Manting felt suffocated.
She was instantly overwhelmed by a begrudging pain.
Her child was doing fine, but she couldn’t see him!
When Shen Luo’an saw her expression change, he turned aside and said calmly, “I’ve already updated you on your child’s recent situation. Don’t act like you’re passing by anymore. It won’t reflect well on you if your acquaintances see you around here.”
Was he ashamed of her?
Shen Manting looked up angrily and glared at his back as he walked away. She shouted, “Shen Luo’an!”
Shen Luo’an stopped in his tracks, but didn’t turn back.
