Chapter 153: Hospital, Pregnancy Storm (Part One)
Closing the door, he took out a cigarette and kept puffing on it. Furrowing his brow, he had a perplexed look in his eyes and an uptight expression on his face.
Li Xiaoman looked at him coldly, then turned around to open the door and leave.
“Li Xiaoman…” Huo Yunxi saw this and called out to her. He quickly stepped forward, grabbed her slender wrist and threw her on to the bed.
With this, Li Xiaoman opened her eyes widely, and a flash of panic lit her eyes. She was about to get up when Huo Yunxi butted out his cigarette and leaned down on her.
Her slender hands pressed against his chest, and she stared at him furiously. “Huo Yunxi, what are you going to do?”
Huo Yunxi looked at her, stroking her face with his fair-skinned hands. His eyes were full of emotion, and he spoke with a gentle tone that she had never heard before. “Xiaoman, I just want to talk to you. Do you really have absolutely no feelings for me? What I did was wrong. I have already broken it off with Xia Lin. Can we start over again?”
Li Xiaoman looked up at Huo Yunxi. Although she hated him for holding her down like that, she understood his personality. The more she resisted, the more she would upset him. In the end, she would regret it.
She tried her best to speak calmly and she didn’t struggle. She just stared at him indifferently. “Huo Yunxi, isn’t it too late to be saying these things? There’s already no more hope for us. We can’t go back to the way things were before.”
Hearing her say this, Huo Yunxi was overcome with sadness and remorse. His fair hands gently held her beautiful face and and he leveled his forehead with hers. His voice full of remorse, he said, “Xiaoman, I know I really messed up. Forgive me, please? Let’s just forget about the past! I… I can forget about what happened between you and Long Sihao. I know, it was because I neglected you that he came in and took advantage of you. You don’t have real feelings for him, do you? I’m the one you love. Xiaoman, would you give me another chance?”
Li Xiaoman looked at Huo Yunxi, her eyes full of regret. In her mind, she sneered to herself, “Huo Yunxi, if only you had known this day would come, maybe you wouldn’t have broken my heart, then ask for my forgiveness when it was too late.”
She fixed her eyes on him indifferently, then said to him calmly, “Okay, Huo Yunxi. I can give you another chance. But, I have one condition.”
“What condition is that?” Hearing this, Huo Yunxi ‘s eyes lit up expectantly.
Li Xiaoman’s clear eyes narrowed slightly, and she raised her eyebrows. “I can give you another chance, but it will depend on fate. Do you still remember where your wedding ring is? If you can find it before sunrise, I will forgive you.”
Hearing her mention the wedding ring, Huo Yunxi recalled their wedding day a year before. After the ceremony, they went back to their bedroom and he threw his wedding ring out the window in anger right in front of Li Xiaoman, saying that he would never touch her.
Remembering his behavior that day, his gut turned with regret.
After a long silence, he said to her, “Xiaoman, I am so sorry, I was wrong! I will go back and find the ring right now. I will find it for sure, believe me.”
Saying this, he kissed her forehead, then hurriedly opened the door, and left.
Li Xiaoman stretched out her hand to rub the spot on her forehead where Huo Yunxi kissed her. Her eyes were cold and her heart was a little sour. Had Huo Yunxi come to her and said this before their first wedding anniversary, things would not have turned out this way.
A year before, after he had thrown the ring out of the window on their wedding night, she went downstairs to look for it. She kneeled down on the lawn and searched for one day and one night before finding it.
She had already found both their wedding rings and put them away. There was no way he would find it.
Breaking her train of thought, she suddenly noticed a pair of black leather shoes in front of her. She froze for a moment, then looked up. How long had Long Sihao been standing in front of her?
She opened her mouth and said in an alienated tone, “President Long, I have something to do tomorrow, so I won’t be going into the office. It’s already late, I’m going to go rest.”
She stood up and was about to walk past Long Sihao when he reached out and grabbed her by the arm.
Startled for a moment, she looked up at Long Sihao and frowned slightly. “I’m very sleepy. I’m going to go and rest now.”
Long Sihao wouldn’t let go of her. His squinted slightly, and he looked at her sharply while pursing his thin lips. “What did you say to Huo Yunxi?”
Li Xiaoman raised her eyebrows and looked at him with a faint grin. “President Long, this is a matter between husband and wife, You shouldn’t concern yourself.”
Just as she was about to leave, Long Sihao took hold of her slender wrist, pulled her back and pinned her against the wall, then leaned down and kissed her passionately.
Li Xiaoman froze for a moment, then struggled to push him away. “Long Sihao, don’t do that, okay?”
Long Sihao locked his fingers with hers and kissed her deeply, as if it were the only way to ease the pain in his heart.
When he recalled how that Huo Yunxi looked at him with a defiant look, saying that Li Xiaoman had already forgiven him and promised him that they could start over, the pain in his heart felt like it would suffocate him.
