Chapter 1713: The Twins Popping Right Out (4)
"I hope we don't have to kowtow after every three steps this time＃" Seeing the many steps before them, Su Yu glanced at Huo Mian worriedly.
Huo Mian burst into laughter.
"What are you laughing about?" Su Yu was puzzled.
"I'm laughing at you and your na?ve questions. There are so many steps and the babies will come out soon; how can I kowtow every three steps? It would kill me and my unborn babies."
"I don't know＃ After all, you're a unique woman who does things differently from ordinary people."
"No, I won't do it. I know what's important＃"
Turning to the steps cautiously, she looked down at the steps and walked up steadily.
Su Yu closely followed her, afraid that she would misstep.
With her present weakened physique, she couldn't get to the top without pausing.
After taking several breaks, she finally reached the temple on the top of the mountain one and a half hours later.
"Come and take some water＃" Su Yu handed her a thermal bottle he had been carrying.
It was warm water he had brought from home. Ever since Huo Mian moved into his house, Su Yu had forbidden her from drinking mineral water because it contained too many minerals.
She had been drinking the water filtered by the custom-made water purifier that the Su Family had ordered from abroad.
Huo Mian took the bottle and gulped down some water.
Then, she looked down at the foot of the mountain.
"Does it look the same as when you came here last time?" Su Yu asked casually.
"The same＃ Exactly the same." In fact, Huo Mian added silently that the only difference was the man standing beside her.
She wouldn't say it out loud; although she didn't like Su Yu, she didn't want to hurt him.
The longer she stayed with him, the more good qualities she found in Su Yu.
He was said to be a hot-tempered, money-squandering arrogant prince of a powerful family, but Huo Mian found the rumors were exaggerated.
In her eyes, Su Yu was an extremely caring man.
He always showed up when Huo Mian needed help the most and gave her a shoulder to lean on.
But the sad thing was that she had never loved him.
For many times, Huo Mian had asked herself if she would fall in love with Su Yu if she hadn't met Qin Chu first.
The answer was that there were no ifs in life; there were only consequence and results.
So, Huo Mian didn't want to make the useless hypothesis.
At this time of the year, the weather was good, and the temple was crowded with prayers even though it wasn't a special day for the Buddhists.
When Huo Mian and Su Yu entered the temple, Su Yu's bodyguards kept watching not far from them.
Huo Mian wore a white cotton dress with a thin drape.
As usual, Su Yu wore a white Versace short-sleeved shirt and coffee-colored pants＃
Their good looks made many people think that they were a couple＃
Some nosy old men and women walked up and asked curiously, "Young man, how far along is your wife?"
Su Yu blushed instantly and was too embarrassed to answer.
In contrast, Huo Mian was calm. "I've been pregnant for more than six months."
"So far along＃ The baby will come out soon. Take care and don't tire yourself, otherwise, you'll have the baby before its time," the kind-hearted old lady instructed her.
"Thank you, Madam." Huo Mian smiled sweetly.
"Your belly is quite big. I think the baby must be big＃ It will be quite a labor when it comes out. Girl, you must eat less and control your weight," the old lady advised her helpfully.
"Madam, her belly is big because she has twins." Su Yu couldn't help himself from not laughing.
