“I quite like them.” Pei Ruo Wei replied.
She was an orphan. She did not have any blood relatives by her side growing up. When she thought about how the child in her belly had half of her blood, she was really happy in her heart.
Duan Shu Tong heard her answer and could only comfort her with ridicule: “Then just take it as Li Xiao donated a sperm.”
There was no clear line between morals and ethics. Pei Ruo Wei was also a victim of the circumstances. It would be unfair to let her bear the irreversible consequences of miscarriage alone, and it would also be unfair to have her bear all the misfortunes in the emotional disputes between the three.
Pei Ruo Wei: ???
She seemed to have opened the door to a new world.

She struggled for a long time before, analyzing all the pros and cons of keeping or aborting the baby. Morality made her suffer, and the consequences made her shrink back.
You could say she was selfish, or doing it for self-interest, or whatever, but she did indeed preferred to keep this child, because this was all of her hope for the rest of her life.
She came back to her hometown precisely to stay away from everyone and not cause them any trouble.
She just never expected to encounter Duan Shu Tong.
Pei Ruo Wei smiled, “Thank you, Young Master Duan. And thank you for helping me today.”
Duan Shu Tong shook his head. “I asked you for help first. Also, your friend is very worried about you.”
Pei Ruo Wei instantly understood the reason for why Duan Shu Tong suddenly sought her out, and she couldn’t help feeling guilty. After all, she had made plans to stay away from everyone. She was afraid that Li Xiao would disturb her friend, so she didn’t talk to her, and ended up making her worried.
But she did not expect that Li Xiao would still find her here.
“Okay, thank you.”
Very soon, Friday arrived.
Zhou Ling stood in front of the mirror before work and looked at her face, gradually she revealed a smile of relief.
She tucked the medical mask that was in her hand into her bag, she lifted her head, and she walked out of the house.
As soon as she entered the elevator, she ran into the next-door neighbor, Aunt Wang.
Aunt Wang raised her head and shot her glance, then she opened her mouth to exchange pleasantries: “Ling Ling, going to work now…?” Her words cut off and she paused for a few seconds. Then she exposed an inconceivable expression. “Ling Ling, your face got better?”
Zhou Ling smiled politely. The curve of her eyebrows was a little more playful and loveable than before, “It’s not all better yet.”
She still had some acne on her face, but it was much better than before when her face was covered with swollen acne. Furthermore, her freckles were much lighter than before. Her appearance now was not frightful anymore. It was within the range of most ordinary people.
Aunt Wang frowned, “You’re not wearing makeup are you? I can’t see the spots anymore. Let me tell you, you shouldn’t casually apply makeup with the condition of your face, otherwise…”
The elevator door opened.

Zhou Ling took the lead to go out and smiled, “I’m going to work, Aunt Wang, goodbye.”
She has never been so excited.
While riding the bike to work, she really wanted to throw her hands and feet up in the air and laugh loudly.
At 8:50 a.m., the staff the Spring and Autumn Hall entered the gate one after another, some of them talked in pairs, and some of them unhurriedly looked all around.
Gao Fang was the secretary to the general manager. She would go to the office early every morning to make a cup of wolfberry chrysanthemum tea for Zhai Jun.
She overslept this morning. She hurriedly walked to the building in her high heels when she passed by Zhou Ling, who was not wearing a mask.
Gao Fang continued forward for a few more steps when what she saw finally registered. She suddenly stopped and turned back around. She fixed her eyes on Zhou Ling’s face for a few seconds. Then she opened her mouth in surprise: “Zhou Ling, your face got better?”
Because she was too surprised, her voice was a bit loud, and the employees nearby all stopped to look at Zhou Ling.
For the first time being watched by so many people, Zhou Ling felt pressured and extremely shy in her heart, but she pretended to be very calm.

Looking back, her voice trembled slightly as she answered: “It’s a bit better, but not completely better yet.”
Zhou Ling’s self-esteem has always been low. Even if her face has improved, being stared at by so many people, she could not help but lower her head and walk inside the building.
Some whispers reached her ear, and she accelerated her pace and quickly came to Lab No. 2.
Duan Shu Tong has sorted out the research report and was standing in front of the experiment table. He smiled at her lightly. “In a while come with me to see Manager Zhai.”
Zhou Ling nodded, “Okay.”
The young man was wearing a white lab coat, lean and tall, he was leaning back slightly against the experiment table. The sunlight came in from the window behind him. He was backlit by the light and his smile was very warm.
At this moment, Zhou Ling’s heart surged up with a wave of gratefulness and veneration.
She thought that with Director Duan here, the Spring and Autumn Hall would thrive.
