The Preamble Strike…..
Laboriously he signed because it was just too much to endure. Too excruciating for Ye Hua to fully comprehend her side. Her viewpoint. Her mental trauma. Hurriedly vocalizing in swift sentences as if she’d been holding it back for years. Her tormented mind’s barrier smashed open, and Bai Qian spoke of the fact that a man could never understand. How pregnancy made everything so much astonishingly worse for SuSu. Her heightened sensitive mental and physical state amplified everything, so she wanted SuJin to suffer in the same way.
Bai Qian revealed what she’d already begun. “I’ve already started a little side project called ‘SuJin’s chemical pregnancy’. It’s a special gift from me that should leave quite an impression. I’ve made it possible for her to experience all the discomforts of pregnancy. Although, without a beautiful baby in the end just like SuSu.”
In an entirely detached way, she continued to describe to Ye Hua how women produced a specific hormone (human chorionic gonadotropin) during pregnancy when the placenta attached to the uterus. Bai Qian openly confessed to having someone close to SuJin on the inside, who’d been actively drugging her with this particular hormone.
Casually refilling their wine glasses, Bai Qian asserted, “Since SuSu was two months pregnant when Heavenly Lord found her, doped was SuJin for the same amount of time. Eight weeks precisely.”
“She’ll suffer morning sickness and show all the signs of pregnancy. Even the Medicine King will have difficulties denying her state since he’ll only check her heart rate. It’s much too early for a fetal heartbeat. And since you haven’t touched her, she’ll be suspected of adultery naturally. After she’s locked up in a barren, cold, dusty palace, I’m going to set it on fire just like SuSu endured.”
Swiftly Bai Qian drank her wine as if to subconsciously numb herself, instantly refilled her glass and divulged, “You don’t have a clue, Ye Hua. The horrifying sensation and what it felt like thinking you’re going to burn to death.”
“The scorching heat. To watch an inferno engulf the very area around you. And the sheer panic of being locked in such a hellish place scarcely able to breathe. Still, at that desperate moment, SuSu only wanted to save her son even though she thought it was the end for her.” Bai Qian’s dark eyes glistened with her unshed tears.
“However, this is all a setup for you to play hero and save her.” How strange it was to hear such a twisted plot coming from her beautiful lips.
The profound agony to listen to her past sufferings as SuSu in such precise details, directly from her first-person perspective made his insides rattle and chilled as if he were hollow.
Ye Hua asked stunned by the specific level of details. Such intricate measures she’d established into her plans, “From where did you get the hormone? Were you ever pregnant after you left me?”
“Ye Hua, for the time being I’m still a virgin. That happens after a mortal body dies and one returns to immortality. As for the hormone I have a source. A certain person we both know who’s been pregnant four times, and her urine had human chorionic gonadotropin.” She continued.
“I had twelve years worth of pregnancy hormones. Luckily for me, Zhe Yan taught me how to distill wine and I used the same process for extracting the hormones.” Bai Qian brazenly boasted as if her action was something brag worthy.
There was only one person he knew and that was his second uncle’s wife, Shao Xin. She was also Bai Qian’s old servant but heard they weren’t on speaking terms. However, she explained that too was also part of the act. Pretending she and Shao Xin were not in contact for the sake of diverting all and any suspicions.
“After you’ve saved and begged for her life because she’s your side consort. Also for the sake of your past time together. I’ll do as she did to SuSu, which was using fake kindness to ensnare her in every single trap I plan to setup for her. And then I’ll begin to terrorize her emotionally slowly, most tormentingly.” Bai Qian’s dark eyes gleamed and her lips drew back into a scary snarl but oddly it was her smile.
She proceeded to confess, “My last design for SuJin is… I’m going to manipulate her. She’s going to be the one who brings down your grandfather for me.”
