Chapter 1246: A Surrogate Pregnancy
Her heartbeat was irregular and she felt shortness of breath. The sound of her irregular heartbeats filled her ears. Her heart was beating so fast, it seemed about to explode.
Ni Jing had heart disease.
Ning Shu immediately started reciting the heart-clearing chant. She felt someone pry open her mouth, put a pill in her mouth, then feed her water.
She swallowed the pill.
It was a good while before she finally recovered a little. The feeling that her heart was about to explode was gone, but she was very tired. She opened her eyes slowly and saw a handsome face in front of her.
“Jingjing, are you ok?” The handsome man had a worried expression that also contained traces of indignance.
Ning Shu realized that she was lying on the floor so she tried to get up, but was struggling. The man helped her to her feet and asked anxiously, “Jingjing, are you really ok?”
Ning Shu shook her head. “I’m fine. I want to go rest.”
“Alright.” The man lifted her in a princess carry. Ning Shu saw that there was a woman standing in the living room. She had a graceful figure and was currently biting her lips hard with an obstinate expression as she stared at the man that was carrying Ning Shu.
The man carried Ning Shu to the bedroom, then gently set her down on the bed and tucked her in. He sat down next to the bed and placed his warm hands on top of Ning Shu’s hand as he said, “Go to sleep.”
Ning Shu nodded, then closed her eyes.
The man left and closed the door behind him.
Ning Shu then started receiving the storyline.
That man just now was Jing Shaoze, Ni Jing’s husband. They had been married for almost 5 years and really did have feelings for each other.
Jing Shaoze was the only son of the Jing family so he had endured a lot of pressure to marry Ni Jing, who had congenital heart disease. However, he had been determined to marry her.
Ni Jing, due to her heart disease, couldn’t do any vigorous exercise. This meant that Jing Shaoze didn’t dare to be too passionate on the bed and always had to be extremely gentle.
Ni Jing also couldn’t have a child. Her body couldn’t handle the heavy burden of pregnancy. It was highly possible for her body to give out before the child was even born.
But if there was no child, who was the Jing family supposed to pass their large family business onto?
So Ni Jing’s mother-in-law came up with the idea of a surrogate pregnancy. Ni Jing was a little hurt, but she felt guilty about not being able to give birth to a child for Jing Shaoze. In addition, her mother-in-law was very dissatisfied with her, so she felt pressured and agreed to it.
The woman in the living room just now was the surrogate mother that Jing Shaoze’s mom had found.
Ye Xi had done this because her father’s company was about to collapse. Jing Shaoze’s mother offered to lend money to the Ye family on the condition that Ye Xi would serve as a surrogate mother.
Ye Xi, for the sake of her father and her family, had resolutely signed the surrogate contract.
When Jing Shaoze learned about this, he was very angry and even loathed Ye Xi who had come here to be a surrogate mother.
At that time, Jing Shaoze still had feelings for Ni Jing.
Jing Shaoze’s mom had brought Ye Xi to the house, saying that Ye Xi had to nurse her body in preparation. So the husband, wife, and surrogate mother were now all living under the same roof. It was a very weird situation.
As they gradually interacted with each other over time, Jing Shaoze started developing feelings for Ye Xi, this girl who was obstinate to the point that people’s hearts ached for her. However, he also loved his wife, so he was very conflicted.
Meanwhile, when Ni Jing found out that her husband had developed feelings for someone else, she started coming up with all sorts of ways to make things hard for Ye Xi and make misunderstandings occur between Jing Shaoze and Ye Xi. Ye Xi had a very stubborn personality so she also didn’t explain things.
Hence, Ye Xi and Jing Shaoze constantly had impassioned lovers’ spats.
At last, Ye Xi gave birth to the child, then disappeared. At this point, Jing Shaoze abruptly realized his own feelings. He had fallen in love with Ye Xi.
As Jing Shaoze held his newborn child, his heart was filled with pain. He drank himself drunk every single day.
He had totally forgotten that he was another woman’s husband and became very cold toward Ni Jing. When he found out what Ni Jing had done to Ye Xi before, he loathed Ni Jing even more.
“You’re no longer the Ni Jing I once knew. I never imagined that you were actually so malicious.” This was a true quote of what Jing Shaoze had said to Ni Jing.
After that, Jing Shaoze rarely returned home. He refused to answer Ni Jing’s calls even when she called him after having a heart attack. She had needed to talk to him because of her heart replacement operation. Her parents had taken a lot of effort to find this heart for her.
However, Jing Shaoze refused to sign the paperwork. By the time he finally signed it reluctantly, Ni Jing’s health was already so poor that she couldn’t take the risk of surgery. She ended up dying on the operating table.
