Soon enough, Shen Manting realized that the two men had no intention of softening their gaze on her despite her protestations.
A sense of uneasiness crept over Shen Manting. Suddenly, she felt an inexplicable urge to cry.
She puckered her lips and burst into tears.
“You’re lying. I haven’t grown old at all. This isn’t me in the mirror. I’m only 12!”
Shen Zhilie turned to glance at Shen Luo’an and sighed, “This doesn’t seem to be working, Big Brother.”
Shen Luo’an was equally frustrated. “Go ahead and carry on with your work. Leave her to me.”
“I’m worried that you won’t be able to handle her. She seems to have no recollection of her life between the ages of 12 and 29. She has lost 17 years’ worth of memories.”
“Didn’t you…” Shen Manting was perplexed. She stared at them intently. “Didn’t you say I’m 31?”
“Yes.” Shen Zhilie looked at her with sympathy in his eyes and continued, “You were hit by a car at the age of 29. Your limbs were fractured and you sustained severe injuries to your head. You had been in a coma for two years.”
“W-what?” Shen Manting uttered in disbelief. “So that means I’ve been staying in the hospital for two years? That must have cost a fortune!”
Shen Zhilie was speechless.
He turned around and patted Shen Luo’an on his shoulder. “Be tactful and patient when communicating with her and try to counsel her. I have some work to attend to,” he advised.
Shen Luo’an turned to face Shen Manting. He looked calmly at her and muttered softly, “You’re my child’s mother, after all. I’m obligated to take care of you.”
“What?” Shen Manting felt her head spinning. “I’m not even an adult yet, let alone married. How is it possible that I have a son…”
“Well, you’ll have to accept the fact that you have indeed given birth to a child.” Shen Luo’an walked over to her and poured her a glass of water. “What do you want to eat for dinner?”
Shen Manting straightened her back. “That means you’re my husband. I’m in the mood for a feast. Is that fine with you?”
She called him her husband…
Her acknowledgment of him as her husband took him by surprise and stirred ripples in his heart.
He gazed at her deeply with his amber eyes and whispered softly, “Sure.”
Shen Manting was elated. She gushed excitedly, “Hubby, I want a feast! A nice meal to dig in with a fork and knife!”
Her bright, innocent eyes were full of expectation and desire.
Shen Luo’an’s heart ached for her. He handed her the glass of water. “Have some water first.”
“All right!” Shen Manting grabbed the glass of water from him and gulped it down. “Are we going to have a feast now?”
Shen Manting was disappointed and whined, “You have deceived me. So much for calling you my husband. I’m taking it back!”
Shen Luo’an smiled and explained, “You’ve only woken up from a coma. Your body needs time to recover. When you’re feeling better, I’ll take you to eat whatever you want.”
“Really?” Shen Manting looked at him with eager anticipation. “You’d better keep your word!”
“Yes, I promise,” Shen Luo’an affirmed with a nod. “I’ll bring you nutritious meals from home for the time being.”
“That’s great!” Shen Manting’s eyes shone.
She was delighted.
She was pleased with his treatment of her.
This “uncle” was not only handsome, but also kind-hearted and had a decent character.
Most importantly, she no longer had to endure the head warden’s scolding and was spared from returning to the orphanage.
Her gaze wandered around the room and finally landed on Shen Luo’an. “Hubby…” she began tentatively, “may I ask you a question?”
She had called him “hubby”…
He was once again caught by surprise.
Shen Luo’an straightened up and answered in a low voice, “Yes.”
“Seeing that we have had a child together, does that mean we’ve already kissed each other?”
Shen Luo’an did a double take, seemingly astounded by the question.
Shen Manting shrank back and whispered, “I once swore that I would reserve my first kiss for my Prince Charming.”
