"What did the doctor say?"

Edmund asked. It was definitely obvious how delighted he was, with his eyes that seemed to shine and his smile that was wide as the fields. He was intently listening to Eunice while she talked about having a child.

Eunice turned to glance at Rhys who was sitting next to her. Then, she lowered her head because of too much shyness from the amount of attention that Edmund was giving her.

Carla, who was sitting opposite of them, looked at Terence. She could tell just from Eunice's reaction that it might be a piece of good news.

Rhys announced, as proud as a peacock, "Dad, the doctor told us that we're having a baby boy."

"Wow! That's is such a great thing! It's a blessing to have a baby boy on your first pregnancy. Eunice, good for you!" Edmund praised, grinning from ear to ear.

People of age were of course conventional. They liked to stick to the old ways so naturally, Edmund was overjoyed with the news that he's going to have a boy as his first grandchild. Boys would carry on the family name so members of the family had always regarded them as a blessing.

Having a baby boy was particularly very important in a great and well known family like the An family.

When she heard the news, Carla lowered her head slowly and silently.

She bit her lip while she got lost in her thoughts. In the past, she had taken birth control measures. But since the doctor told her that she was not pregnant, she stopped taking them. It was just at the right time too because she and Terence had decided to try having a baby.

But three months had already passed, and there was not even a sign that she was pregnant.

They had already gone back to the doctor to ask for his opinion. What he told her almost crushed her soul. At that time, she thought that the doctor wasn't telling the truth or he was just scaring them.

He told them that it would be hard for her to conceive a child, let alone a baby boy. It had something to do with the quality of her egg cells or the structure of her womb. Honestly, Carla couldn't remember exactly. Her mind just went blank when the doctor said that she would have complications trying to get pregnant.

She twisted her hands nervously under the table. Suddenly, a hand enveloped hers very tightly then squeezed them a little.

She lifted her head and turned to Terence. He was giving her a smile of reassurance. And she couldn't help but feel just from his eyes, his soulful, calm and gentle eyes the calmness and comfort that she badly needed.

Edmund, who was laughing before, sighed when he noticed that Terence and Carla were looking at each other.

He had the sudden thought that if the news that he just heard was announced by this couple, he might be even happier.

Edmund then felt that it was fortunate that Nicholas had yet to find out that it would be hard for Carla to get pregnant. He only went out once to attend the wedding and he had always stayed in the North Yard.

Eunice then turned to Carla and said, "Carla and Terence, do you have plans of having a child as well?

You got married before us, but you don't have a baby yet. I really think that you and Terence should have

hat if there would be a chance, he would still want to marry her in his next life.

Before she knew it, tears started to flow all over Carla's cheeks. She took a deep breath, lifted her head and deeply pressed her lips on his thin ones. After the kiss, she looked at him and said, "Terence, I can't let you go. I don't want to give up. But if you choose to let me go—"

But before she could finish her sentence, Terence suddenly bit her lip. Then, he showed her his frown before lifting her chin.

He then said in a furious tone, "Carla, don't you ever say that again! I don't need any child. I only want you! I wouldn't know what to do if I lose you! I wouldn't even be myself if you're not with me!

I admit that it would be a pity if we can't have a child, but I will still choose to spend the rest of my Iife with you. But if you leave me, it will kill me. My heart, my soul, my body will die. How could I survive without you by my side?"

Carla looked into his eyes and found determination and love in them. For the first time that night, she smiled and replied, "You're too uneasy. I've already said that I couldn't leave you.

I wouldn't be able to take it if I see you be together with another woman or have a child with another woman. I really wouldn't know what to do, Terence. I'd probably go crazy."

Carla earnestly continued with tears in her eyes and a smile on her lips, "So unless I'm dead, I won't leave you. You're stuck with me forever."

Terence wiped off the tears that were trickling from her eyes, with his thumb. Then, he embraced her in his arms and said, "Okay, I'll remember what you said. We're living for ourselves and not for other people. So we shouldn't be bound to their opinions about how we should take our relationship.

As long as we're happy, it's more than enough for me."

People were naturally selfish and they became more selfish when it came to love.

But all Terence and Carla wanted was to spend the entirety of their lives with each other.

Everything else fell into the background, as long as they could hold each other's hand while they took on their lives.
