Chapter 338: See Her Pregnant Photos

Translator: Henyee Translations      Editor: Henyee Translations

Gu Lanshi replied, “It’s me.” Li Xiwu frowned and clenched her fists on her knees. Gu Lanshi looked at her frown and asked softly, “Would you feel relieved if I said it wasn’t me?

“No.” Her throat felt raw. “So that day…”

Gu Lanshi said unhurriedly, “That’s why I specially brought Youyou to see you that day.”

Li Xiwu pretended to be calm as she took the teacup and took a sip.

Gu Lanshi watched her every move. “Li You, can you tell me how you feel now?”

Li Xiwu held the cup in her hand. The heat of the tea passed through the porcelain cup to her fingertips. It was not hot, but she wanted to let go and leave. However, she naturally would not leave just like that. Otherwise, what was the purpose of her visit today?

She slowly looked up at Gu Lanshi. “…What does Youyou have to do with me?”

After asking, she waited for Gu Lanshi to answer her. If not for those dreams that let her know that she was pregnant, she would not be so tormented at this moment. She waited in torment for Gu Lanshi to tell her the truth.

She even thought of what to say next to question him. If it was a fabricated lie, it could not be flawless. There had to be a flaw. But she never expected that Gu Lanshi would not tell her the truth but give her the truth she wanted.

Gu Lanshi took out his phone. After a while, he placed it on the coffee table and slowly pushed it in front of Li Xiwu. “Look at this. Compared to what I said, I think you should be more willing to believe what you saw with your own eyes.”

Li Xiwu was stunned and did not immediately reach out. “What is this?”

Gu Lanshi said, “I saved some photos of you in Country T back then.”

Li XiWU’S heart was beating like a drum. It was not because she was nervous, but because she was afraid for no reason. She was afraid to face reality.

Seeing that she did not reach out to take the cell phone for a long time, Gu

Lanshi reached out to take it back. “It’s fine if you don’t look at it. I’ll tell you.”

As soon as his hand landed on the phone, Li Xiwu stopped him. “Wait.” Gu Lanshi looked up at her. Li Xiwu suppressed her unstable emotions and whispered, “I’ll look at it.”

Gu Lanshi retracted his hand and smiled. Li Xiwu slowly leaned over and picked up her phone. The screen had not gone out. When she saw the first photo, her pupils constricted.

Gu Lanshi reminded her, “There are a total of six photos. Continue scrolling back.”

Li Xiwu heard it, but she didn’t swipe back immediately. She stared at the first photo for a long time.

The image in the first photo overlapped with the scene in the dream. Li

Huaisheng and MO Zhu were sitting in the pavilion. She was standing at the side, and the focus was on her bulging stomach.

Li Xiwu looked at the photo for a long time. Then, her fingers slowly moved back, almost stiffly. The second photo was also the scene in the first, but in the second photo, MO Zhu stood beside her. Mother and daughter were talking about something.

After that was the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth photo.

Her pregnant belly was in every photo. It looked like it had been taken in the course of a day. By then, the belly was huge and seemed to be coming into labor soon.

Li Xiwu closed her eyes tightly, trying to ease the impact of the photo.

But the moment she closed her eyes, her mind was filled with the photos of her pregnant belly. Her heart surged, and her emotions gradually flared up on the verge of losing control. Her hands were trembling slightly, her brows were furrowed, and her face was a little pale.

Gu Lanshi stood up and snatched the phone from her hand. “Li You.”

Li Xiwu suddenly sobered and looked up at him. “The person in the photo is…”

Gu Lanshi said, “It’s you.”

He knew what she wanted to ask.

Doubt? Obviously, it would be strange not to. Therefore, he told her directly, “The person with a bulging stomach in the photo is you. If you still don’t believe me, then I have nothing to say.”

The next second, Li Xiwu suddenly stood up. She had a lot of things she wanted to ask Gu Lanshi. She could clearly ask him now, but her throat seemed to be blocked. She choked and could not make a sound.

Gu Lanshi tried to approach her slowly. He placed his hand gently on her shoulder and called softly, “Li You?”

Li Xiwu looked up at him and said with difficulty, “Gu Lanshi, when did this happen?

Meeting Li Xiwu’s shattered eyes, Gu Lanshi’s heart choked. “Four years ago, when your mother was still around.”

Li Xiwu shrugged slightly and moved Gu Lanshi’s hand away from her shoulder. She slowly sat down. “I don’t remember anything from the past. I believe you know about it too, so if you tell me now that it was four years ago, I won’t be able to answer you. But you can tell me.”

Gu Lanshi’s hand froze in midair. He turned to the bar to get a teacup and came over to refill Li Xiwu’s cup. “Have some more.”

Li Xiwu said, “Thank you.”

Gu Lanshi put the teacup aside and returned to his seat. Seeing that Li Xiwu’s expression had improved a lot, he said, “Why don’t you ask? I don’t know where to start.”

It was related to Li Xiwu, so it was indeed necessary for her to ask so that Gu Lanshi could answer. Otherwise, they would probably not be able to finish talking for a long time.

Li Xiwu’s expression was tacit agreement. After considering her words for a moment, she asked directly, “Who knew about my pregnancy back then?”

Gu Lanshi lowered her eyes slightly and did not look at Li Xiwu. “Your parents and me.”

Li Xiwu narrowed her eyes. “Who else?”

Gu Lanshi looked up at her.

Under the silent gaze, Li Xiwu knew what to do. It was up to Gu Lanshi to answer. If he insisted that there was no one else, Li Xiwu felt that there was no need to continue this conversation. Because as far as she knew, Madam Di Xin also knew about her pregnancy.

Gu Lanshi did not disappoint her. After looking at her quietly for a moment, he slowly said a name. “Madam Di Xin.”

Li Xiwu’s eyelashes fluttered as she continued to ask, “Who else?”

Gu Lanshi said, “Back then, you deliberately hide your pregnancy from Pei Jingzhou. Very few people even knew about it.”

Li Xiwu murmured, “Is that so…

“I’ve always been in Country T. During that time, your stomach was already very big, and you’ve always been by your mother’s side.” Gu Lanshi said slowly in a neither fast nor slow tone, “At that time, your condition was not good. To be precise, it was very bad. I happened to hear what your mother said to you and asked you to terminate the pregnancy. You were unwilling.”

When Li Xiwu heard Gu Lanshi’s words, she clearly did not recall those scenes, but she could still empathize. The tip of her nose stung, and her voice caught. “…What happened then?”

Gu Lanshi said word by word, “Later on, you insisted on giving birth to that child. ”

Li Xiwu looked at Gu Lanshi, she asked after some hesitation, “Is the child I gave birth to Youyou?
