1078 From the size of your stomach, it might be twins.
Hence, the person helping her must have a notable background!
Qin Qitong's eyes widened infinitely as she looked at him with a face full of disbelief.
"Are you serious? I know everyone who is related to Sister Pei Ge; where would that person come from?"
"You don't understand. If the person helping her is someone average, she would already be found by your cousin, yet even after half a month, she's still missing, and your cousin is still clueless on her whereabouts."
Even he could not find any traces of the woman.
It had to be said that the person behind her was truly very powerful.
"That's true, too. The last time I went to my aunt's house, I heard my uncle scolding my cousin, telling him to stop finding Sister Pei Ge."
His explanation caused her vigor to die down as she nodded in agreement helplessly.
"You don't know how angry my uncle is at her this time. His tone is always filled with disgust every time her name is mentioned."
"That can't be helped."
Bi Zheng patted her head and continued softly, "Alright, don't think too much about this. This matter is between your cousin and Pei Ge, so don't meddle in too much."
"Mhm… I understand. I actually only just want to find her now…"
"People won't vanish without a reason. There'll be a day when she appears in front of you again."
"Then, I really hope… that that day doesn't come too late."
New York City, United States.
The light was warm and gentle in the milky-white room.
The white, floral-patterned curtains gently billowed with the light breeze.
The room might not be huge, but the furnishings made it look cozy.
Exquisite flower vases, beautiful lavenders, red wooden floor, milk-white wool carpets…
Of course, what was the easiest on the eye was actually the woman in the lounge chair right by the window.
The woman wore a milk-white long dress made of cotton, which appeared to be a very comfortable material.
This long dress was very loose. Despite that, it was still unable to hide the woman's huge and round stomach.
"Ge Ge, haven't I told you to wear more clothes?"
The couple walked in, only to be greeted by her sneeze.
"Hurry and cover yourself with the blanket! You're already sneezing!"
Tang Xiaoyu quickly strode over to her with the thin blanket from the bed and covered her with it.
"You two are here!"
She happily listened to her best friend nag at her.
The latter reminded her strongly of her mother.
"Seriously. You're already this old, yet you still don't know how to take care of yourself."
"I'm truly not feeling cold."
She shook her head in amusement while blinking at her friend.
"Hur hur. Not cold, huh. Not cold yet you sneezed."
The woman rolled her eyes at her in reproach.
"I merely sneezed once! Maybe someone is missing me?" She grinned.
She received another eye-roll from her friend because of that.
"You're not just one person now. Our precious baby is in your stomach! You can't simply do as you wish!"
Tang Xiaoyu squatted and lightly placed her palm on her extremely round stomach.
"Baby, isn't godmother right? Your mother is truly so unreliable! When our baby is out, you can just ignore her…"
She shook her head helplessly at her friend badmouthing her.
"Zhengrong, can you please take charge of your possession? She always does this whenever she comes. She's too much."
She raised her head to look at the man standing at the side silently.
She felt somewhat envious when she saw him looking at her best friend with a loving gaze.
These two's relationship is so good!
"I say, you guys, if you like kids this much, give birth to one yourselves. Why are you guys eyeing my child?"
She felt her best friend's hand pause when she said this.
The thing that baffled her the most was why this loving couple had yet to get married or make a baby.
"I don't want to give birth to his child, and pregnancy is so troublesome!"
Tang Xiaoyu soon raised her head to look at her with a grin.
"Plus, just having our baby is enough!"
The corner of her lips twitched speechlessly.
"Oh, right, Ge Ge. Our baby is only a few months' old, so why is your stomach this big?"
The other blinked while looking at her stomach curiously.
"Yes, it's a little too big."
The ever-silent man nodded in agreement.
Seeing the couple's curious looks, she caressed her stomach and smiled. "It's almost five months. Dr. Cyriel also said that my stomach is a little big and that I might be pregnant with twins."
"How about… we go do an ultrasound to check?"
Her best friend suddenly got excited when she heard this.
"Mhm. The doctor said that he'll arrange one for me soon."
She nodded. Her anticipation toward the child in her stomach was apparent.
"Ha ha! If it's really twins, won't I have two exactly identical babies?!"
If one did not know it, they would think that Tang Xiaoyu was the one pregnant from how excited she was.
"Yes…" Perhaps influenced by her, Pei Ge also revealed an excited expression.
Watching from the sidelines, the man could not help but smile too as he gazed at the seated woman.
However, when he noted that her face had thinned a bit again, his smile quickly faded.
"You've lost weight again."
