"No. Your brother has recently been busy with work. He spends most of his time in the company. Wait for me, I'll be there soon!" Why did Colin choose to send Aaron away?

Without a shadow of doubt, Aaron believed Sophia. After all, Colin was like a god in his eyes. "Sister, I have to board the plane in 10 minutes, you can't make it here in such a short period. You and brother can visit me in Britain if you have time!"

"10 minutes?" Sophia felt a sudden ache in her heart. How could Colin not mention anything about this before sending her little brother away?

"Yes, sister. Brother has been good to our family. I've never seen anyone else so good to his wife. I wish you two the best."

Sophia was silent. She knew Colin had done a lot for the Lo Clan. Taking a deep breath, she promised, "Of course. Don't worry about me and Colin. Since Colin has arranged everything for you, you should study hard and not disappoint him."

"I won't, sister. The Li clan is our family's benefactor. I'll keep that in mind."

Sophia almost burst into tears at his words. She restrained her feelings and said, "Well, have a nice journey!"

"Thank you, sister. I'm still worried about dad. Tell me every piece of news about his recuperation!"

"I will. Don't forget to contact me when you arrive." Though they were trying to talk with each other like they usually did, their minds were weighed down with anxiety.

"I know. Bye, sister!"

"Take care!"

Aaron hadn't known Sophia was pregnant because no one told him. And Sophia intended to keep him in the dark.

After her conversation with Aaron, Sophia dialed Colin's number, but none of her calls were answered.

Listening to the busy signal on the other end, Sophia almost smashed her phone in anger. She texted Colin with her trembling hands, "Colin, why didn't you tell me about sending my brother away?"

After a long while, Colin replied when Sophia had almost given up. "He's also my brother. I have the right to help him with his future."

In the Company

Just as Colin just sent his message, Wendy rushed into his office. "Colin, where's Sophia?"

Wendy had asked Sophia several times about where she was being held, but Sophia always stammered and didn't dare say a word. Wendy figured she was afraid of Colin.

Colin was surprisingly calm. He raised his head and casually met Wendy's angry eyes. "What's wrong, mother? How could I let her stay in our house, when she's bearing another man's child?"

Wendy's eyes widened in disbelief. "What's wrong with you? You keep saying Sophia that cheated on you, but there's no proof!"

"But I do have proof. Do you want to have a look?" Wendy was shocked. She looked into his eyes but only saw a calm and serious expression on his face.

Surely, Sophia hadn't slept with another man...

But why Colin was so certain? "Even if Sophia cheated on you, I'm sure she didn't mean it!"

Colin paused at her words. He looked intently at his mother. That damn Sophia, hurting everyone who loved and cherished her. She had a protective mother-in-law, yet she slept with another man to repay her kindness...

"She was definitely willing. Do you want to see?"

Wendy was dumbstruck. Her face turned pale in shock as she stuttered, "Colin, have you made an investigation? How are you so sure?"

Colin sneered as he shook his head. Somehow, he didn't want to tell Wendy about how Sophia had cheated on him. "Mother, she's not your concern. The child she's currently bearing is not mine. I don't want you to intervene with my decision."

If he allowed that whore to give birth to another man's child under his roof, he would not only be a laughingstock, but also a cuckold. And he wouldn't let his mother take care of that fatherless bastard, either!

"But she gave me her word, she promised me that the child was yours..." Wendy had spoken to Sophia on phone several times. Sophia didn't sound like she was lying.

"She's a

liar, mother. Don't believe her in the future!" If he hadn't seen the video and the results of his investigation, he wouldn't have believed that Sophia would cheat on him.

He had explicitly told Sophia not to lie to him. He also made it clear that if she dared to cross him even once, she would bear the consequences of her actions. But she evidently didn't listen!

Wendy still refused to believe Colin's accusations. "I want to see Sophia in person. I want to talk to her face to face. What if the child is really yours?"

What if the child was his? He still wouldn't forgive a woman who had cheated on him. A fox may turn gray, but never kind. He was so foolish for believing that she had never slept with other men before.

"If the child is mine, I'll take it back to the Li House, but Sophia Lo will still be cast out."

Wendy was at a loss of words. She tried to persuade him, "Colin, please listen to your mother. Don't turn everything into an irredeemable mess. Look at your aunt and uncle. Your uncle is so irascible and opinionated, that's why their relationship is full of frustration. If your aunt didn't love him so much, they wouldn't stay together after so many disputes and cold wars. Considering that, your uncle is lucky to have her.

You're a successful business man, Colin. But I want you to understand that a relationship is very different from the business world. You must distinguish one from the other. Sophia isn't your business competitor or partner. Don't treat her like one."

But Colin didn't listen to a word she said. Looking at his mother, he believed that she was brainwashed by Sophia. "Go home, mother. Don't contact Sophia anymore."

"What the hell!" Her heartfelt words had fallen on deaf ears. Hearing Colin's answer, Wendy felt that she was about to explode. But she didn't give up. She asked her son in anguish, "Colin, you used to love Sophie very much. What changed?"

The whole incident seemed like an ordeal to test their relationship...

Colin remained quiet. He didn't change, but Sophia's actions changed him. If she didn't cheat on him, he would still love her. He would even help her get revenge on her enemies...

But she chose to betray him in a way that most men couldn't bear.

"Mom, go back home. I've made my decision. Sophia is not your concern anymore. Let's rewind and pretend I never married her."

Wendy was heartbroken. She walked away, clutching her chest.

She would never let her son and daughter-in-law end in bitter animosity.

She took out her cellphone and dialed Jordan's number. "Jordan, I want you to investigate about Sophia's..."

After a month of house arrest, two doctors came to the mansion. The butler explained that the doctors were here to give Sophia an examination.

Sophia was disappointed. She was looking forward to a chance to get away from the mansion.

She lay down on the bed and lifted her dress.

The child was now three months old. Thanks to Justina's care and Eudora's delicious cooking, Sophia always ate well. Even though the child was only three months old, her abdomen had already grown bigger.

After the examination, the doctors put the tools and instruments away. "Mrs. Li, the child is developing well. You need to stay in a good mood and exercise regularly."

Sophia took the doctors downstairs herself and watched them walk out of the yard of the villa before going back.

She was glad to hear that her child was healthy.

It was the only thing that made Sophia happy in a long time.

The doctors also reported the results of the examination to Colin. They repeated the advice they told Sophia.

"Good mood?" There was a short pause before Colin spoke. Was Sophia unhappy?

"Yes, pregnant women will be more irritable and emotional at the second trimester. It seems Mrs. Li is in a sullen mood. Mr. Li, we suggest letting her do some activities that make her feel happy, like going out for a walk."
