Ni Jiu (Intoxicated) - Chap 88 - Epilogue (2) - Lian Yueting (1)
It is said that the summer in Yi City is a season specially reserved for the bustling city to breathe.
The blazing sunlight penetrated the small gaps between the leaves of the lush phoenix trees casting a light golden light on the asphalt road. The young man rode his bicycle quickly through the old narrow road. The hot wind blew the white thinness of his body. The t-shirt, which was exposed under the cuff was a little red from the sun’s scorching rays on the thin and white arm.
The bicycle stopped at the door of a flower shop. The teenager locked the bicycle, pushed the door open and ran in: “Dad, Daddy, is Tingting back?”
“It’s not time yet, what are you doing today-” Shen Tingwei was halfway through his words, he raised his eyes and paused.
Looking at Kang Tong’s flushed face and the thin sweat oozing from his forehead. He reluctantly put down the half-trimmed lisianthus, walked over, took the cold misty mineral water he took out from the small freezer and pour it out in glass and handed it over to Kang Tong : “Why are you so tired?”
“I came back after class.” Kang Tong took the water glass, lowered his head and took a sip. He couldn’t help but ask, “How’s Ting Ting’s examination result? It’s fine, right?”
“It’s alright, don’t worry.” Shen Tingwei glanced at the clock, “Your dad just made a phone call. It was a bit blocked when he got back from the airport. We’ll see when we get home.”
Kang Tong hurriedly rushed after school. When he came back, he couldn’t see Lian Yueting as he wished, so he dragged a long voice in disappointment and said, “Ah-”
Shen Ting couldn’t help laughing seeing his expression and continued to organize the flowers in the bucket: “Your already in high school. Why are you still so attached towards your sister?”
Kang Tong shook his head, his black eyes looked at Shen Tingwei and stubbornly corrected: “It’s my brother!”
Shen Tingwei looked at him for a long time and sighed. He reluctantly accepted this statement and said, “Okay, the younger brother is a younger brother.”
Whether Lian Yueting is a younger brother or a younger sister once made Kang Tong spend a lot of time thinking during his remaining childhood.
The matter has to start from the day Shen Tingwei gave birth. That is, the day when Lian Jue’s worldview was once again impacted.
Shen Tingwei’s childbirth is definitely the top priority of the family.
A week before the due date, Kang Tong had already entered his winter vacation. Lian Jue had completely put down what he was doing and devoted himself to accompanying Shen Tingwei before he gave birth.
Shen Tingwei felt that they were too exaggerated. Every day he watched the big and small person around the bed in front of him. His eyes were dizzy, so he asked: “Can you two-”
Lian Jue: “Want to drink water?
Kang Tong: “Want to eat fruit?” Shen
Tingwei: “…stop fussing around?”
Shen Tingwei blinked: “…do you want to sign up another remedial class for Tongtong?”
On the day Shen Tingwei entered the delivery room, it was not only Shen Tingwei, Lian Jue and Kang Tong were also nervous.
The obstetricians as well.
On this day, the experienced obstetrician rubbed the disinfectant on his hands while secretly cheering himself up: “Don’t be nervous. Don’t be nervous. I’m not nervous-”
After a few hours of suffering, the surgery was successfully completed. The doctor finally breathed a sigh of relief.
The nurse in charge of holding the baby suddenly exclaimed in a low voice and hurriedly called the doctor who was wiping his sweat: “Doctor Liu-”
The moment the doctor saw the baby’s physiological structure, the doctor calmly spoke to the doctor who was helping him wipe the sweat. The nurse said, “Bring me a ventilator.”
The sweat-wiping nurse opened her eyes and looked at Shen Tingwei lying on the operating bed, her heart stunned: “Why?…”
The doctor took a sharp breath: “I may need to get some oxygen.”
The moment Lian Jue saw the child, his mind went blank for a second.
The doctor who had regained his composure said to him, “The preliminary judgment is hermaphroditism, which may be related to Mr. Shen’s body structure, and the possibility of heredity cannot be ruled out.”
All kinds of bizarre things that happened to Shen Tingwei made Lian Jue dumbfounded at this moment and couldn’t help but think a long time.
After a while, he looked at Kang Tong, who was standing on tiptoe outside the delivery room door and suddenly called the doctor.
“…I said,” Lian Jue squeezed his throat, “is it possible…he is really an alien?” The doctor was stunned then raised his hand tremblingly and pointed towards the delivery room: “That… President Lian.”
“There’s a ventilator in it.”
After Shen Tingwei was still awake, under Lian Jue’s unusual pushback and Kang Tong’s strange expression, his white lips were pursed tightly.
He looked at Lian Jue, his face turned cold and his hoarse voice carried a tone of indifference: “Bring the child here.”
Everyone thought that Shen Tingwei would be startled when he saw the baby but his reaction was what they didn’t expect:
Shen Tingwei held the baby in his arms and whispered in surprise: “How can it be an alpha?”
After a long period of self-construction, Lian Jue calmly asked: “It’s the one on your planet… that will mark and nesting-”
He couldn’t find a suitable adjective for a long time. Shen Tingwei nodded very thoughtfully before he finished speaking, agreeing with what he said.
Although the gender of the baby did not match what he expected before, Shen Tingwei did not think that maybe she would not be easy to walk in this life in the future but Shen Tingwei actually saw and held the baby. For a moment, he just felt softness that melted in my heart spreading out from his chest.
He raised his head and pulled Lian Jue’s sleeve, as if he was afraid that he would have a bad mood because the baby’s body structure was not conforming to the norm. Perhaps to appease Lian Jue but also to appease his own uneasiness, Shen Tingwei brought a gentle smile into his tired eyes, looked at Lian Jue and said softly: “Alpha is good. Physically strong, studying to be a class cadre and growing up to be a leader.”
Lian Jue was stunned, not because of anything else but because of Shen Tingwei’s unequivocal tone and demeanor when he said this.
He stroked Shen Tingwei’s damp hair in a funny way and said, “…you expect too much from her.”
He paused, then said, “It’s good to be healthy.”
When Kang Tong was looking at the baby, Shen Tingwei edited a long text message with the old mobile phone he was carrying.
The baby was born and it is a female alpha. At first, I was worried about whether mixed blood would affect her…
Well, the word mixed blood may not be accurate but fortunately the baby is in good health.
Just a little out of tune with this world, like me.
I really want to give her half of my good luck in this world.
I told Lian Jue that she was cute but in fact she was so ugly, her face was wrinkled.
She is too young to see who she looks like. I hope her eyes are like mine. Lian Jue’s eyes are a bit fierce.
The world is really troublesome. The hospital said they didn’t know what gender to fill in the birth certificate issued to her.
Both the hospital and Lian Jue tend to fill in male but I think we are still discussing whether to fill in female. Ah, it’s really troublesome.
Mom, it hurts to have a baby. I don’t want to have another baby in the future.
Mom, I love you.
