In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 93

When I saw that everything she picked was pink, I could not help but chuckle bitterly. “Why is everything so pink? What if my baby is a boy?”

While she looked at the cots, she replied, “It doesn’t matter. Regardless of whether your baby is a boy or a girl, they’ll still need these items. If your son really doesn’t like them, we can buy them again after he’s born.”

She was not wrong.

Slowly, the things in the trolley piled up. As I would start to gain weight due to my pregnancy and swell up, she even bought some skincare products for me.

Watching as she placed the items in the trolley, I could not help but laugh. “Macy, you, as the godmother, are paying even more attention than me!”

She chuckled. Suddenly, her eyes reddened as she hugged me. “Letty, leave Ashton! I can take good care of you.”

I did not know why she suddenly uttered those words. Stunned momentarily, I patted her shoulders and assured her, “Why are you being so emotional all of a sudden? I will leave Ashton sooner or later. But I’d like to leave proudly, instead of sneaking away like a thief.”

She nodded and replied hoarsely, “It’s okay. I’ll wait for you. I’ve already found a suitable place in Q City, where the property prices are lower. After adding up our savings, we can buy a small villa there. Both of us and your child can stay there.”

There was something different about this girl. For a moment, I could not tell how exactly she had changed. All I could tell was that she was hiding something and seemed sadder than before.

Sighing softly, I chuckled. “It’s fine. I’m not in such a dire state now. We have a long journey ahead of us!”

As it was getting late, we directly headed to Glenwood Apartments and placed the baby products there. It was more convenient to do so.

I initially planned to stay in Glenwood Apartments. However, my phone rang after a while.

“Letty, someone’s calling you!” Macy was squatting in the guest room and assembling the cot. When she heard my phone ringing, she called for me.

I was washing the fruits that we had bought by the road. Wiping my hands and glancing at my phone, I saw that it was a call from Ashton.

Frowning, I looked at the time. It was not even 9 pm yet.

“Hello, Mr. Fuller.” I was not deliberately trying to sound distant. As he was probably calling me to discuss some official matters, I naturally had to be polite.

I could hear the roaring of the wind through the phone. After a few seconds of silence, he asked, “Where are you?”

“Glenwood Apartments.” I looked at the cot which Macy had assembled. She had thoughtfully placed a layer of mosquito net around the bed.

“Oh, I see.” I thought that Ashton needed to talk to me about something. To my surprise, he had nothing else to say after calling me.

After he hung up, I tossed my phone aside and admired the cot. The more I looked at it, the cuter it seemed.

“Okay, we’ve got everything settled. All that’s left is for your child to be born.” Macy was a hands-on person. After assembling the cot, she shot me a proud look and asked, “How am I faring as a godmother?”

I smiled and passed her a fruit. “Very impressive!”

As it was getting late, Macy looked at me and said, “I’ll go take a bath first. Look around and see if there’s anything else we need to do!”

Nodding, I sat down in the living room and started scrolling through my phone.

The doorbell suddenly rang. Thinking that Macy had ordered some food, I got up and opened the door. Meanwhile, I yelled in the direction of the bathroom, “Macy, did you order food?”

A voice came from the bathroom. “No!”

Before I could say anything, I saw a tall man standing at the entrance. I was stunned. Why did Ashton come here?

“You…” I wanted to ask him that question, but my voice faltered gradually.

“Aren’t you going to invite me in?” he asked with a cold, yet relaxed expression.

I shook my head. “It’s not a good time!” As Macy often came out from the shower with only a towel wrapped around her, it was not appropriate for him to enter.

“Who’s that, Letty?” Macy’s voice sounded from the bathroom again.

I glanced at Ashton and replied, “He’s from the estate management team.”

“Estate management?” Ashton raised his eyebrows, but his expression was indecipherable.

I pouted and asked calmly, “What are you doing here?” It was almost 10 pm, so he should have gone home already.

He stood at the entrance. As he was very tall, he blocked the faint lights in the corridor. When I raised my head and looked at him, he was shrouded in darkness.

“I’m here to fetch you home!” As he spoke, he took out his hands from his pocket. He waved the car keys at me.

I heard some noises coming from the bathroom. Hence, I shoved Ashton back and yelled, “Macy, I’m going out for a while!”

Then, I closed the door and dragged Ashton to the stairway, knowing that it was inappropriate to argue loudly so late at night.

With a gentler tone, I said, “I’m planning to stay here for a while. Don’t worry, I’ll take care of my baby well.”

“Go back to the villa!” instructed Ashton coldly. “Mrs. Eriksen can take care of you.”

I frowned. “Ashton, I…”

“You can live here, but Mrs. Eriksen and I will move over to stay with you,” he said seriously.

I was rendered speechless for a brief moment. After a short pause, I retorted, “It’s too small to accommodate both of you!”
