Sweet Wife in My Arms - Chapter 877
Lu Yi continued to drive. He stepped on the accelerator as the traffic light turned green, but all of a sudden, someone bumped into his car. He immediately stepped on the brakes. Yan Huan was in shock and her forehead broke out in a cold sweat.
“Are you okay?” Lu Yi asked in a hurry. Just then, he put his hand on her forehead and he could feel a handful of sweat.
“I’m okay.” Yan Huan shook her head. “What just happened?” She was fine as her seatbelt was on, it was just a slight bump and she did not feel any discomfort in her belly. Otherwise, it would be impossible for her to sit quietly right now. As for the sweat on her forehead, it was definitely due to the shock, not for other reasons.
She breathed in and out lightly. Slowly, she was able to calm down.
“Let me take a look.” Lu Yi was still worried about Yan Huan. It seemed like they had to go back to the hospital again. But now, there were people outside waiting to be settled. Would this be a car accident scam?
When he got out of the car, the one who almost got hit… no, wait for a second, the woman who bumped into his car grabbed his sleeve in a flash.
Lu Yi lowered his head and saw a woman with a big belly. Similarly, she was a pregnant lady in her thin clothes; however, she was extremely skinny and her cheeks were almost sunken. How could she be this skinny? She is even skinnier than Yan Huan. Yan Huan was controlling her food intake, plus she was born with this physique, so now the only part that was growing bigger was her belly. That being said, she was not as scrawny as this woman who seemed to be all skin and bones. No matter how he would definitely feed Yan Huan more so that she could put on some weight after the two babies were born. What kind of useless man would let his wife be this skinny?
“Lu Yi, help me, please…”
The woman called out his name directly when she received no response from Lu Yi. There were signs of fear in her face, she looked at the surroundings from time to time as if someone would come and capture her.
Lu Yi frowned.
“You know me?” Could it be possible that this was happening for a reason, not just any simple scam?
A hint of sadness flashed through the woman’s eyes. He had forgotten about her as expected.
“I’m Zhu Meina.” The woman licked her lips. “I went to your workplace and looked for you, but you drove me away.”
Yes, Lu Yi remembered this vaguely. Basically, he could not recognize a woman’s face well. Hence, he could only remember the things that had happened and did not really have much impression on people.
Not long after, there was an additional member in the car. Lu Yi turned the car around and headed back to the direction of the hospital.
Yan Huan curiously gazed at the woman behind her. She was a pregnant lady as well, appeared to be almost the same size as hers, which was around five to six months. Although her own belly was considerably bigger than others, it was true that her babies were just a little over six months old. The lady was not wounded but she looked dry and dull, just like how she was in the past.
“How many months has it been?” Yan Huan was fixing her sight on the belly of the woman. Is she feeling ill? Regardless, they were both mothers-to-be. Be it a true car accident or a scam, the baby was innocent. So, she would never joke about a baby.
“Six months.” The woman’s hand never left her belly. She raised her face and smiled hideously at Yan Huan. “I’m sorry. It wasn’t intentional, I have no other choice…” Upon saying that, she covered her face and started weeping.
“Uhm, you…” Yan Huan felt a little awkward. She had not said anything, neither did she scold or blame anyone. Why would she cry? She was not fierce-looking at all.
“I’m sorry.” The woman wiped her face again and Yan Huan wondered, why does this lady look so familiar?
“Are you Zhu Meina?”
She asked tentatively. Yan Huan had met Zhu Meina in her past life. She was fond of Lu Yi, but Lu Yi did not reciprocate her feelings. Once in a while, she would appear somewhere around the Lu family. She met her a few times before, but was this Zhu Meina for real? She looked somehow different from her usual self, very different indeed.
The woman licked the corner of her chapped lips again, then nodded.
“I’m Zhu Meina.”
Yan Huan bit her finger and turned her gaze from Zhu Meina’s countenance to her belly. To be honest, she never took Zhu Meina as her imaginary rival.
It was mainly because she knew that it was a one-sided love, and it had nothing to do with Lu Yi. Later in this lifetime, Zhu Meina did not appear, which she thought was the result of her ‘little wings’. That was why things had changed, and Zhu Meina would no longer exist in Lu Yi’s life. However, she had never thought of meeting Zhu Meina under such a situation. Moreover, what happened to her belly?
At this time in her past life, she had met Zhu Meina once, but she was certain that Zhu Meina had not been pregnant.
Zhu Meina could not stop crying. When a woman cried so sorrowfully, even Yan Huan who was her imaginary rival could not bear to watch, not to mention others.
“Uhm, don’t cry.” Yan Huan took a tissue and put it in front of her. “Tell us what happened, we might be able to help you.”
“Thank you.” Still choking with sobs, Zhu Meina took the tissue from Yan Huan.
She wiped off her tears. However, regardless of how she wiped, there were still tears.
“Please, please help me. Save my baby’s life.” She lowered her head and touched her belly. “Although he is not what I want, I can’t watch him die.”
“Can the baby survive if he is born this month?”
“Six months?” Yan Huan lowered her eyes. She thought of her badly mutilated baby in the past life for a moment, then shook her head. “A child born at six months couldn’t survive. It’s really hard for babies who are born before the seventh month to survive.”
Although she already knew the answer, Zhu Meina started to break into choking sobs again while hugging her belly.
‘”I’m begging you, please save me, save the baby. They are going to kill both of us. They wanted to cut open my belly and take away the umbilical cord blood of my baby.”
Yan Huan was going to comfort her at first, but when she heard the words ‘umbilical cord blood’, her pupils contracted suddenly.

All of a sudden, a bad assumption crossed her mind.
“Su Muran wants the umbilical cord blood of your baby?”
All she could think of was Su Muran, and right now, Su Muran was the sole person in desperate need of umbilical cord blood. Zhu Meina was the cousin sister of Su Muran. If she could only settle for the second-best and needed blood ties, Zhu Meina seemed to be the one useful person for her.
