Chapter 2019: The Man Sleeping beside Her

The infant whimpered.

He clenched his fists and waved them about.

Shen Manting couldn’t help smiling.

“Feed him some milk.”

Shen Luo’an suddenly mumbled from under the blanket.

Shen Manting heard him and walked out of the room quickly with the infant in her arms.

She closed the door on the way out.

Shen Luo’an buried his face in his blanket. He peeked out from under the sheets when he heard the door shut.

Sure enough, the room was already empty.

She was gone.

The room was unusually quiet.

Shen Luo’an couldn’t fall asleep anymore.

Shen Manting fed the infant some milk and brought him to the garden for a stroll.

The morning sunlight was soft and warm. The infant winced and furrowed his brow when he was exposed to the sun.

He opened his bright, alluring eyes and looked around him.

“Manting, it’s time for breakfast!”

Mother He shouted.

Shen Manting immediately replied, “All right, wait a minute.”

Then, she heard a man’s voice in the distance. “Don’t expose the baby to too much sunlight.”

She turned around and saw Shen Luo’an standing by the door, dressed in dark gray, casual attire.

He appeared sleep-deprived.

Shen Manting glanced at the infant in her arms and was able to guess why he looked so sleepy.

“His condition has improved now, so he doesn’t need to take the medicine anymore. This little guy has a quick temper. Remember to feed him milk. Otherwise, he’ll make a huge fuss.” Shen Luo’an stepped forward and said in a low voice.

Shen Manting took his words lightly and said, “The baby is still so young. Do you think he’d mind much?”

“Try him if you don’t believe me.” Shen Luo’an was talking to Shen Manting, but his gaze was fixed on the infant. “I didn’t believe it myself either.”

Shen Manting felt doubtful. She looked down at the infant. He seemed to be amused; he arched his eyebrows in a grin, his tender, pink gums showing.

“Go and have breakfast.” Shen Luo’an reached for the infant and carried him in his arms. “I’ll be going to work later. Keep a close eye on the baby.”

Shen Manting felt a strange sensation.

Shen Luo’an seemed to be in an unusually pleasant mood today.

Why was he telling her so much information about the infant?

Nevertheless, Shen Luo’an went back into the house with the infant in his arms.

Shen Luo’an seemed to be very busy.

He left home slightly past 8 a.m. and was out at work all day.

Shen Manting held the infant and played with him in the room for a while. Then, the infant fell asleep.

She looked at the time. It was already 10 p.m.

Shen Luo’an still hadn’t come home yet!

Shen Manting felt sleepy. She sat by the bed and soon drifted off to sleep.

She was awakened by the infant’s movements.

Shen Manting was already awake and alert before he started to cry aloud.

The lights in the room were turned off. Strangely, she was leaning against the bed when she fell asleep, but found herself lying on the bed when she awoke.

Shen Manting felt slightly uneasy. She turned around and saw a man sleeping beside her.

She was shocked and sat up abruptly.

The infant started to wail loudly. Shen Manting stood up immediately and went to cradle the infant.

Shen Luo’an turned over on his side. He covered his ears with a pillow and went back to sleep.

Shen Manting clearly saw his actions. He obviously had no intention of tending to the infant.

The realization annoyed her.

What if she wasn’t around?

Would he have let the infant cry himself to death?

She coaxed the infant and whispered, “Don’t cry. Mommy will feed you some milk. Be good, all right?”

She couldn’t resist glaring at Shen Luo’an as she spoke.

But he didn’t move at all and remained still.

She patiently prepared some milk for the infant. After feeding him, she gave Shen Luo’an a nudge.
