The cashier looked up and exclaimed, “It’s you! I remember you!”
Ji Shiting raised an eyebrow and said, “That’s right. I bought something here a few months ago. You have a good memory.”
He and Shengge had bought a condoms here that day, and it seemed that it had been the same cashier.
“It’s not that I have a good memory, but you and your wife are amazing… By the way, do you know that your wife looks like the hottest star, Ye Shengge?” The cashier blushed.
“That’s right. That’s what everyone says,” the man repeated patiently. “A girl just bought something from you. Do you remember what she bought?”
“Ah… The girl with the ponytail?” asked the cashier.
It was already late, and only a few people had bought things here, so she remembered it.
“That’s right.” Ji Shiting curled his lips.
The cashier couldn’t take it anymore when the man smiled. She looked away and said, “Um, the system has records. Let me see… Ah, I saw it. She bought… Um, sanitary towels…”
Ji Shiting frowned.
“Okay.” He nodded. “Thank you.”
“You’re welcome.” The cashier blushed. “I wish you and your wife eternal happiness.”
Ji Shiting smiled and said, “We will. Thank you.”
Ji Shiting lit up another cigarette after returning to the car.
He didn’t know what he was expecting, but he couldn’t help feeling disappointed upon hearing the cashier’s answer.
It was completely silent with stars in the sky. Ji Shiting wound down the car window and let the night breeze blow in, dissipating the strange heat in his heart.
He was holding a cigarette between his fingers, and he suddenly recalled Ye Shengge’s advice.
She told him not to smoke.
What had happened that made her so resistant to the smell of cigarettes?
Ji Shiting frowned, but he couldn’t help putting out his cigarette and starting the car.
Ye Shengge was on the phone with Song Ruxu.
“You’re pregnant…” Song Ruxu was also shocked by the news.
“Yes, it was an accident.” Ye Shengge bit her lips and smiled bitterly. “I don’t know who the father is… So don’t tell Ji Shiting.”
This news was even more shocking than Ye Shengge’s pregnancy, and Song Ruxu didn’t say anything for a long time.
“Calm down first.” She said after a long while. “I’ll return to Yang City as soon as possible. Before that, go to the hospital first. Perhaps you made a mistake.”
“If I’m not mistaken.” Ye Shengge held her forehead. “What should I do?”
“I’ll tell her the news and see how she reacts. She might not dislike the child,” Song Ruxu said. “Perhaps this is an opportunity. Don’t worry.”
“I…” Ye Shengge was speechless.
Song Ruxu realized something from her tone. “Have you decided whether you want to keep the child or not?”
“…That’s right.” Ye Shengge felt a lump in her throat. “I don’t even know who the father of the child is…”
If she gave birth to a child that wasn’t related to Ji Shiting at all, it would be even more impossible for her and Ji Shiting.
