Dear Young Master Spare Me Please? Chapter 242
After her first trimester, her mood became a bit stable and she was able to visit LCG quite a few times to help a little. Her original team was more than happy to see her. Although she didn't stay for too long, her help was normally warmly welcomed.
They even develop a program to visualize the possible appearance of the couple's twins. It actually made Han Meixiu laugh and ask them when did they have so much free time on hand.
Peaceful days turned to months.
No matter how people around insisted that Han Meixiu and Liu Zijian to celebrate a little more grandeously their first wedding anniversary, the couple didn't budge.
Like the usual excuse, Han Meixiu used her pregnancy as a reason to make it low key.
Although she really appreciated the thoughts, it's really not that easy to move around since she's in her full term.
Besides, she was also being pestered by cramps from time to time.
Just like at this moment.
Liu Zijian after giving her a glass of water sat down on the edge of the bed.
"Are you feeling better?" He gently asked.
"En." Han Meixiu responded. She looked at the opened window. The sun was about to shine and grace the world with its golden light.
"These days it's getting more frequent."
"It's fine. Doctor Tang said it's normal."
Liu Zijian nodded as he looked at the woman who just stabilized her breathing. She looked like a person who swallowed an entire watermelon in one go.
Everytime he would feel the slight movement on her tummy, there's an unexplainable happiness dancing in his heart.
They followed diligently all the necessary advice the doctor has given them. He highly hoped everything would go smoothly.
"Helped me, I need to go to the bathroom." Han Meixiu raised her arm asking support from Liu Zijian.
After making sure she settled herself inside the bathroom, Liu Zijian made a call. He's feeling unsettled with his wife's situation.
It was as if he predicted, in a few seconds he heard Han Meixiu's shrieking voice.
The man looked calm but he already started sweating as he picked up his wife inside, covered her up and walked out of the room towards the car that was just prepared.
Both Aunt Jing and Aunt Ni Ni immediately knew what was happening. The two old ladies, quickly followed and stuff the things they prepared in the car.
Since Liu Zijian and Han Meixiu would be having twins, the couple decided to let Aunt Ni Ni continue working after Aunt Jing went back.
The older Liu couple who had been treating K Country as their new home was immediately informed. They even arrived in the hospital earlier than Liu Zijian and Han Meixiu as they lived nearer.
After Han Meixiu was ushered to the delivery room, Liu Zijian could only wait outside. The only calm person among the three was Mr. Liu who was sitting beside Madam Liu and continuously stroking her back.
An hour passed and there was no one coming out of the room.
Another hour passed, there was still no news.
Madam Liu already stood up from her seat and walked to and from.
Liu Zijian on the other hand was silently standing near the door looking calm. But if someone will look closely he was actually slightly shaking. The longer he waited, the more his worry eats him up.
After almost another hour someone came out.
"Who's the husband?"
"Me!" Liu Zijian immediately answered.
"Follow me inside."
In a split second the two disappeared.
Madam Liu's complexion didn't look good as her gaze was stuck on the closed door.
"It will be fine." Mr. Liu softly said and guided his wife to sit down again.
Inside the delivery room, after Liu Zijian wore the necessary suit, he saw Han Meixiu covered in sweat looking very aggrieved. He actually heard her scream and it drummed his ear continuing to slice his heart.
He already knew what role he's supposed to do.
After seeing Liu Zijian, Han Meixiu felt she wanted to brawl out her grievances. "I.. can't do it…I can't..."
Liu Zijian went to her side and started to coax his wife.
"You can do it. I am here. Look, I'll help you... Just repeat after me, we will count and you will push, alright." He said gently. He has been replaying this kind of scenario on his mind as he was informed that Han Meixiu might not have an easy time giving birth.
"It's your fault! It's so painful!"
"I know. I know. I'm sorry. You can punish me later on but you have to let them out for now, okay."
The doctor uttered to continue. Liu Zijian simply nodded.
"You can bite me if you want… Come on, you can do it.. One..two...threee… push"
Another scream came out but it wasn't enough. They have to work harder.
Liu Zijian wanted to cry together with Han Meixiu, as he clearly saw how hard and painful it was for the woman to deliver the babies.
Although he had read quite a number of articles detailing the process of giving birth, seeing it first hand was a totally different story. Especially if the person suffering is someone you love.
How could he ever repay a woman who would wholeheartedly give you a child? Her love must have been beyond herself to willingly step on that life and death situation.
While his heart felt warm and overflowing with gratitude and love, his words kept on encouraging the woman who could only try her best to push out the babies. Yes, it's not only once, but twice.
Han Meixiu should double her effort.
She was actually thankful that Liu Zijian came in. Surprisingly, his presence indeed gave her extra courage and strength.
By the time the twins came out, Han Meixiu was extremely exhausted. She weakly smiled "They're..out.."
The cry of the twins actually didn't registered to Liu Zijian as he was focused on the weak woman who was still holding his hand firmly.
"Yeah. You did a good job. You did good…" He said their foreheads touched.
Outside the delivery room, the older couple received that both the babies and the mother were safe.
Madam Liu couldn't contain her emotions and cried in relief.
After a few minutes, Liu Zijian went out. He looked a little pale and was still sweating. He's waiting for Han Meixiu to be transferred to her own private room.
It was already evening when Han Meixiu woke up again. She recalled that after she was moved out of the delivery room, she saw Liu Zijian and heard him whispered something.
She didn't know how long she slept but she noticed that her body was already cleaned and she's wearing a new set of clothes.
Noticing the movement on the bed, Liu Zijian walked towards it.
"How do you feel? Do you feel uncomfortable?" He asked.
"I'm okay." She answered. "Where are the twins?"
"They're in specialized ICU. You don't need to worry. Doctor Tang mentioned it's common for twins to be born a bit prematurely compared to single pregnancy."
Han Meixiu softly nodded. She heard Doctor Tang saying it as well.
"Mom and Dad are there, looking at them. I don't know if they already left." Liu Zijian continued. The two older people volunteered to watch over their first grandchildren after seeing their daughter in law sleeping soundly.
"Which one is older?"
"The boy was 12 minutes older than the girl. Have you thought of their names?'
"We'll see after I see them. Have you seen them?"
Liu Zijian smiled gently before answering. "I did." He had to admit that the babies didn't really look good the first time he saw them but after they were cleaned, the twins looked normal babies.
He was able to hold both of them in a short amount of time but he was damn scared. They looked so fragile and he was extremely worried that a single wrong movement could basically end their life.
Their mother stepped on the death door for them and if they would be wronged not just today nor in the future, he could never forgive whoever it would be.
They are their children, Han Meixiu and his. They're part of them.
Realizing that Liu Zijian seemed to be lost in his own thoughts as he recalled what happened earlier while maintaining a subtle smile, Han Meixiu chuckled.
"I want to see them, too."
The news of Han Meixiu's delivery already spread to the people waiting and smiles on their faces were evident.
Zhang Huiling who was in the middle of thinking on what disguise she should use to visit her daughter was twirling the pen in her hand. The entire room was quiet as if giving her time to ponder carefully.
She could be a doctor or a nurse but, if she would visit now it might be a little obvious and might be a bit dangerous, too. For the past months, after she received the parcel from Han Meixiu, she was able to gather new evidences.
She only received the news that both the twins and her daughter were safe. She wanted more details or a picture perhaps.
As if she was heard by the heavens, she received an encrypted mail, showing exactly what she wanted to see and know.
"Liu Zijian, you're really worth to be her husband." Zhang Huiling smiled as she gently touched the screen of her monitor. Her eyes immidiately moistened as she realized time flies so fast. She's now a grandmother of two little angels.
After Han Meixiu slept again, Liu Zijian went to where the twins are and saw that instead of his parents, his brother was the one standing near the glass window.
Seeing his younger brother, Liu Zilong smiled. "Conratulations, Little Zi. You now have two little tianshi."
Liu Zijian walked and stood beside his brother before he answered. "Yes. Indeed, they're angels."
The First Young Master didn't tease Liu Zijian this time. He rarely sees him having this kind of solemn and loving expression.
"I'll be in charge until sister in law fully recovers." Liu Zilong murmured. "You have to let me hold the twins, too."
The two men silently stood there for quite a while gaining a questioning gaze from people passing the area.
