My Baby’s Daddy Chapter 1249
No. At this rate, he might do it despite his wounds, and I won’t be able to stop him. However, I can’t just ignore what Dr. Silas said either. She scurried out of his arm and sat on the edge of the bed. “I think I should get back to my room.”
She took a book from the couch and handed it to him. “Read this if you can’t sleep. Calm yourself down. It’ll make you sleep better.” So she’s running away just like that?
Ruka was gone, and Ren couldn’t do anything about it. He didn’t mind making out with her even with the wound, but there was something else to consider. He had to make sure her first time didn’t go too badly, or it might affect how she thought of him.
It would be bad if she left him for another person. Ren held his urge back, at least until he healed up a little.
Ruka stayed up until about one before she fell asleep. She too was turned on, and sleeping was hard.
They had breakfast at nine the next morning. Charlotte and her butler came at ten. She even brought her usual chef along to make some soup for Ren.
Ruka and Ren welcomed her into the house. Ren pretended that he was fine, and Charlotte didn’t notice his wound.
“Scarlet told me you’re having a day off, so here I am. Brought something nice for you. The chef’s gonna whip some soup up,” Charlotte said. There was a glint of delight in her eyes.
Her son was young and lively, but she was worried he might be worn out by work, so she got someone to buy all the supplements she could. By supplements, Charlotte meant aphrodisiac, and she upped the dosage too.
She even came up with a herbal soup for Ruka. Charlotte believed in the power of alternative medicine, and she hoped Ruka would get pregnant soon.
“Oh, you didn’t have to do this, Mom. 1 mean, we can always make you lunch.” Ren didn’t want his mother to worry about him. She wasn’t getting any younger.
“What else can I do but this? If you love me, you’re going to drink as much soup as you can. Don’t let it go to waste,” she said. “Of course, Mom. Of course,” he assured her.
“Ruka, you have as much bird’s nests as you can too. It’s good for you,” she said. Ruka might be young, but she knew why Charlotte was doing this. She blushed, and she nodded. “Of course, Charlotte.”
Charlotte sniffed the air. “I smell disinfectants in the air. Is someone hurt?” “The cat scratched Ren, so I put some disinfectant on the wound,” Ruka quickly answered.
Charlotte paused for a few moments. Oh! Oh… I bet it’s not a cat scratch. She didn’t really care though. All she wanted was for her son to finish the soup she brought with her today.
Lunch was served a while later. It was a feast, and there were two pots of soup specially made for the couple. The servant took the lid off one pot and ladled a bowl of it, then she served it to Ren.
Ren thought the smell was off, and he froze for a moment. “What kind of soup is this, Mom?”
“Herbal soup. You work through the night every day, so I got you some nice herbs to perk you up. It’s nothing extreme. Just drink it,” Charlotte said seriously.
Ren took a sip. It was okay. He could taste the herbs in it, but the soup was generally good. The aphrodisiac had a strong taste, but thanks to the chef’s skills, they were covered.
“And here’s yours, Miss Singed. Have a taste.” The servant served Ruka another type of soup. The clear bird’s nest decorated by jujubes and wolfberries looked tantalizing. She took a sip and thought it was delicious.
