Shen Luo’an felt slightly uncomfortable when he saw how guarded she looked.
He was silent for a moment, then said, “I rented a small apartment nearby. You can live there for the time being.”
When Shen Manting heard this, she relaxed slightly.
“All right. Let’s go.” She carried the baby in her arms and walked to the front.
Shen Luo’an watched her from behind, and his lips moved to speak, but he ultimately didn’t say anything.
Although he said the apartment was nearby, it wasn’t within walking distance.
They hailed a cab and got into the backseat. The baby was pretty quiet the whole time.
But when they reached the apartment, the baby suddenly started to struggle and cry.
It opened its mouth and let out a cry that made Shen Manting’s heart ache.
She gently tapped his tiny back and said, “Don’t cry, don’t cry. Mummy will put you down for a nap.”
Her actions were full of motherly love.
Shen Luo’an gazed at her, and a strange feeling surfaced in his heart.
She was his sister and the mother of his child.
It was a strange relationship, and it made Shen Luo’an experience a range of complicated emotions.
They opened the door and entered the apartment together.
Shen Manting realized that someone was occupying this apartment.
The furniture was relatively new, and there was a fresh bouquet of flowers on the table.
It was obvious that Shen Luo’an lived here.
Shen Luo’an had a habit of putting a fresh bouquet of flowers in his room and in his office.
It wasn’t because of aesthetics. On some days, he would have vibrant and pretty flowers like roses or lilies, which exuded a rich scent, and on other days, it could be a sunflower or a bunch of baby’s breath.
Right now, he had a stalk of calla lily on the table.
Shen Manting glanced at it before sitting down with the baby in her arms and lifting her shirt up to breastfeed the baby.
But Shen Manting seemed a little embarrassed, because she had her back turned to Shen Luo’an.
The child suckled a few times before he stopped and closed his eyes to continue sleeping.
“Head into the room and change your clothes. I’ll get your pajamas for you.” Shen Luo’an turned around and went into the only room in the apartment.
Shen Manting scanned the apartment, and there was really only one room.
“If there’s only one room, then does Shen Luo’an plan to sleep with me?” she thought to herself.
Her heart jolted at the thought, and she subconsciously stood up.
She scooped the baby into her arms with the intention to leave.
“That’s enough. I’ve had enough of those days!” she thought. “Now that the baby’s born, I can’t stand up against him at all!”
Shen Manting suddenly felt a great sense of regret.
“I shouldn’t have. I shouldn’t have agreed to leave with him just now at the hospital. I merely moved from the cage in the capital to another one here…”
Her heart trembled, and she got up and walked over to open the door.
When Shen Luo’an came out with a fresh, clean set of pajamas, he caught sight of Shen Manting attempting to leave.
His face darkened, and he quickly dashed forward and yelled out, “It’s late. What are you going to do?”
Shen Manting’s body stiffened when she heard him.
Right after that, she opened the door and walked out of the apartment.
But Shen Luo’an reacted quicker than her. Moving forward, he grabbed hold of her hand and said, “Behave yourself. It’s very windy out there. If you catch a cold and cause yourself to fall ill, you’re the one who’ll suffer, not me.”
Shen Manting froze and turned her head to look at him.
It was hard to believe that those words had just come from Shen Luo’an’s mouth.
Shen Luo’an felt rather uncomfortable under her gaze, and he pulled her back into the apartment before closing the door and locking it.
He tossed the pajamas over to her and said, “Change out of your clothes and get some rest. What do you want to eat? I’ll get it for you.”
Shen Manting felt as if she were dreaming, and she stared at Shen Luo’an in disbelief.
