The probability of getting pregnant in situations like these was very low. They could try in vitro fertilization, but there was a high chance that the baby would be miscarried before it reached full term. The mother’s body would treat the fertilized egg as a foreign body and expel it…
“Little Su, if you marry Shao Yibai, you might… You might… You might not be able to have your own children throughout your entire lives…”
Jiao Shuzhen was truly troubled by this matter.
Su Qingcheng held the report tightly. She lowered her gaze and stared firmly at the words on the report. The words kept getting clearer, but her memories and consciousness got blurrier.
She recalled the worrying dream that she recently had.
All of the happiness that she possessed vanished into thin air when she woke up. She was not lucky enough to love a respectable man who felt the same way about her. It was impossible that everything would work out so perfectly. Everything was over now because she had awakened from her dream. She was back to square one.
“Aunty, are the results of this examination final?”
Su Qingcheng had yet to fully accept this. The people in the mountains where she grew up in simply got married and had children without thinking. People like her who were unregistered citizens were the result of families having too many children. She never imagined that people would predict whether they would have children in the future before they were even married…
“No, they’re not. That’s why your uncle and I discussed this. We were planning to take you and Yibai’s samples to another reputable hospital to be tested again.” Jiao Shuzhen did not hide this from her.
They had prepared two sets of their samples beforehand because it was difficult for Shao Yibai to move freely while he was in the army. He was currently in Luo Hai, but that did not affect anything.
Su Qingcheng closed her eyes. Deep down, she fully understood this already.
The institution that did their laboratory tests belonged to one of the bigger and more renowned hospitals in Capital City. They would get the same results even if they were to go to another hospital. Due to this, Jiao Shuzhen cried and turned into a mess when she saw the results.
Her son had decided on this woman whether Jiao Shuzhen liked her future daughter-in-law or not. Judging from Shao Yibai’s reaction, he would remain faithful to Su Qingcheng even if she was unable to bear him children.
Thus, Jiao Shuzhen was worried that the Shao Family’s line would end here in the future.
“Aunty, regardless of the outcome, you don’t have to worry. I won’t act selfishly… I won’t selfishly put myself first…”
“I’m not going to trouble you if I’m truly unable to marry Shao Yibai!”
It was extremely difficult for Su Qingcheng to say this. Her complexion was ashen and the world that she had built in her mind suddenly collapsed when she thought about the possibility of her leaving Shao Yibai in the future.
Jiao Shuzhen did not dare to believe the things that she heard. Shao Jingshan was also slightly shocked by this.
Due to the Shao Family’s status and financial circumstances, most people would desperately struggle even when issues like this cropped up. They would strive for a chance for themselves. Unlike this stupid girl, they would never easily give up!
“Little Su, you… How can we compensate you?” Jiao Shuzhen blurted out. In her mind, she could not allow her son to just sleep with this woman for nothing if he did not marry her…
Su Qingcheng bitterly laughed when she saw the look of disbelief on their faces. Her voice was not loud, but she spoke in an extremely earnest and steady manner. “Aunty, I don’t want any form of compensation. Big Brother Shao has already given me enough. I have an education and the ability to work now, so I can survive on my own…”
Shao Jingshan was slightly reluctant to accept that. He waved his large hand. In a low and muffled voice, he said, “How could we let you do that? Is the Shao Family filled with such unsympathetic people? Little Su, neither you nor Jiao Shuzhen should panic regarding this matter. You should get the tests done again and we’ll see what happens after that!”
Su Qingcheng nodded. “I’ll go along and do whatever you want me to do, but there are some things that I have to tell you first.”
“Three generations of the Shao Family only had one son each, but your family’s bloodline is not going to end with Shao Yibai because of me! I love him very much… I love him so much that… I don’t even know who I am anymore…”
Su Qingcheng choked back her sobs for a while. “I came from lowly origins, so being loved by him was clearly a blessing from God. He saved me, and I saved him too. We’re not trying to get anything from each other. We’re purely in love. If I love him, I must be willing to make sacrifices… I know that Shao Yibai loves children…”
Su Qingcheng’s tears finally came streaming down as she could not hold them back anymore. Shao Jingshan and his wife’s hearts were filled with sorrow when they witnessed this.
Jiao Shuzhen took some tissue papers and passed it to Su Qingcheng. “Little Su, don’t cry. I’m not trying to make things difficult for you. Right now, these results are simply the conclusions of one party and could be a probability issue. Let’s try the tests somewhere else.”
Su Qingcheng nodded. “I’ll leave everything to you, aunty.”
Returning to her apartment and seeing everything before her, Su Qingcheng felt as though she was dreaming. Her memories replayed in her mind, including her first meeting with Shao Yibai up to the time when they were dating. They only shared sweet moments as there were no regrets.
Now that this had happened, she felt that God was punishing her. She was never fated to enjoy a life like this.
Within two short years, it seemed like she had almost used up all the happiness in her life.
Her only friend in Capital City was Tian Qi, but he had followed Shao Yibai to Luo Hai. She did not have anyone to share her worries with anymore. She sat on the window seat and basked in the afternoon sun for the whole day. Tissue papers piled up on the ground below her feet.
They had arranged to do the tests in another reputable hospital in Capital City the next day.
Su Qingcheng followed Jiao Shuzhen to the hospital early in the morning. They did not have to queue and were merely required to go through a simple process. Unlike the previous time, the main purpose of this examination was to compare the test results.
When the doctor read the diagnosis that was given by the previous hospital, a pessimistic look appeared on his face.
This time, they would receive the results very soon. They would not even need to wait for half a month.
Su Qingcheng had only waited for three days, but she felt as though those days had dragged on like a year.
She prayed to God but warned herself not to harbor wishful thoughts at the same time.
Shao Yibai was physically in Luo Hai, but his heart yearned for the young woman who stayed behind in Capital City. As he would video call her every day, he gradually noticed that there was something wrong.
“Do you miss me very much?” Shao Yibai’s voice was resplendent and warm when he comforted her. Su Qingcheng wanted to abandon everything else just so that she could be with him.
However, she instantly sobered up when she calmed down and looked at the face on the screen that she would never forget throughout her entire life.
Love would always require sacrifices…
She was being selfish right now.
“I miss you very much!” Su Qingcheng touched the screen that showed his handsome face. She wanted to cry…
When the results of the laboratory test came out three days later, Su Qingcheng was not surprised by the outcome anymore.
“Mrs Shao, it’s up to you to make a decision regarding this matter. We can merely provide you with some statistics that you can refer to. As for the outcome, the tests may not necessarily be accurate. There have been couples who successfully had babies several years later…”
The doctor who tested her said this in a very tactful manner. When she saw that Su Qingcheng looked utterly devastated, she suddenly found it hard to continue on.
She initially assumed that the girl who was going to be married into the Shao Family of Capital City would be an extremely calculative and conspiring woman. She never expected that the young woman before her would be innocent and pure.
She forced herself to stay calm when she heard the news but deep down, she was completely disheartened and filled with sorrow and fear.
Jiao Shuzhen took the results of the laboratory test and got into the car with Su Qingcheng. As expected, neither of them said anything throughout the journey.
Jiao Shuzhen sighed and groaned. Previously, she was secretly unhappy with certain aspects of Su Qingcheng. However, she had truly started to like this girl now…
When Shao Jingshan returned to the Shao household and saw the same results, his face darkened as well. He took his cigarettes and hide in the courtyard alone because he felt depressed.
“Aunty, I’m going to leave Capital City before Shao Yibai returns…”
