Lester shook his head. “Uncle Jessop got another aunt pregnant, which means he’s a bad person. Mom, don’t be with him.”
I was stunned by Lester’s words, but soon I said, “this is the business of adults and adults can solve it. You are a child. You just need to grow happily, OK?”
Our affairs were too complicated.
What was more, it was a mystery whether Ming injected something into Lester’s body. I didn’t think it was possible, but I dared not bear the possibility of one in ten thousand.
After all, Ming, in my opinion, still had some dark sides.
Lester pouted and seemed to be thinking about something. After a while, he said seriously, “Mom, Lester will protect you even without Dad.”
I hugged Lester and carried him downstairs.
Soon Linda arrived downstairs.
When I dressed Lester and sent him out, another familiar car drove to the door.
Soon Ming got out of the car. He watched Lester wear a lot so he asked me, “are you going out?”
“Uncle Jessop, mom said she has to talk to you about adults’ business later. It’s inconvenient for me to be around.” Lester said it first.
Ming didn’t know what he was talking about, so he squatted down and pinched Lester’s face. He said gently, “Lester, you don’t have to go.”
Lester looked at Ming and shook his head, “but the aunt says I’m not Uncle Jessop’s son and the baby in her belly is, so she want me to go.”
After Lester said that, the atmosphere immediately became quiet.
Ming’s smile disappeared in a flash. He looked at me and his eyes were complicated.
I didn’t speak.
Linda took Lester’s hand and said, “come on. Summer is waiting for you to make pizza!”
“OK.” Lester nodded seriously and seemed a little reluctant.
After Lester left, Ming didn’t go in immediately. He looked at me and asked, “what’s the matter?”
“She will tell you by herself.” I turned around and got into the house.
As soon as I entered, Erin rushed over and cried, “master, you are back at last…”
She saw it was me before she finished. She stopped and looked disgusted and frightened.
She stood where she was and put her hands on her waist. She glanced at me and asked me, “where is master? Did you let him go?”
I ignored her and went on.
At this time, Ming came in.
Erin saw Ming and rushed over. She continued to cry, “master, you are finally back. I’ve been waiting for you for a long time…”
“What’s the matter?” Ming pretended to know nothing and looked at Erin.
Erin thought he didn’t really know, so she said, “I have good news for you!”
“What is it?” Ming raised his eyebrows slightly.
I stood at the stairway and looked at them.
Erin approached Ming and touched her stomach with one hand and took a folded test sheet out of her pocket with the other. She opened it and put it in front of Ming and said, “look, I’m pregnant with our baby!”
Ming listened to her. His gentle eyes got cold but the change was not very big.
He turned and sat on the sofa.
Erin was obviously surprised.
She must have thought Ming would be happy and even announced that he would marry her right away.
But Ming did nothing and didn’t even speak. He just sat on the sofa and took his cell phone out of his pocket. His fingers pressed a few numbers on the screen of his cell phone and he began to make calls.
Erin approached him.
But when she moved, Ming suddenly looked up at her. His eyes were not gentle as usual but cold!
He seemed to be warning her not to come!
Erin was scared and stopped and was reluctant.
Doris and Briana were behind them.
Erin didn’t look back, but she knew they must be laughing at her. She was very reluctant, but when Ming called, she didn’t dare to approach him.
Soon Ming’s phone was connected.
He just said to the phone lightly, “let some people come here.”
Then he hung up.
Erin was happy when Ming hung up. She immediately stepped forward and said to Ming, “master, I…”
Ming seemed to take a serious look at her. He looked cold and he looked up and asked her, “you are pregnant?”
It was a common problem, but it seemed to be an encouragement to Erin. She nodded desperately and there were tears in her eyes. “Yes!”
Ming nodded and patted the seat beside him. “Sit here.”
Erin was more excited. She immediately walked over and sat in the position indicated by Ming.
She even sat closer to Ming.
Doris and Briana couldn’t believe it.
But I was very calm.
It was not only because I didn’t love Ming, but also because I felt danger.
All the things Ming did now were contrary to his usual character.
He made me feel dangerous.
I thought the call Ming made just now must be abnormal.
Who would come later?
I stood there and wondered if someone would come and take Erin.
And then she would disappear.
Erin was obviously naive. She felt no danger at all. She approached Ming and said, “master, I’m not feeling well. I can’t eat anything now.”
Ming didn’t seem to resent her behavior at all. He squinted at her and smiled in his eyes. “Thank you.”
Erin was so excited!
She said happily, “no, I am willing to do anything for you.”
“Really?” Ming looked at her.
Instead of moving, he held on to his cell phone. There was always a smile on the corner of his mouth.
But I knew something terrible would happen later.
“Yes!” Erin nodded desperately.
Just then, the doorbell rang.
Briana went to open the door. I stared at the door and seemed to feel that it might be a couple of black bodyguards coming in and they would drag Erin away.
