Today was Sunday, but Joshua Hui said that he couldn't go with me to the hospital for my prenatal care visit because he had something to deal with in the company.

He wasn't like this in the past. Before, no matter how busy he was, he would always find a way to accompany me.

Joshua Hui came from a small village, and he held a PhD from Peking University. After we got married, we lived with his mother. She was a conservative woman who had a feudal way of thinking. After being married for more than half a year, I still hadn't gotten pregnant. Because of it, she started to persuade him into divorcing me and marrying someone else.

After his mother brought up the topic a few times, he busied himself with work. He always went home late and even worked on weekends.

Finally, I got pregnant. But he didn't go back to his old self. He was still very busy all the time.

His mother, who used to make things difficult for me because I couldn't get pregnant, didn't change either.

She still made things difficult for me up until now. Worse was, he sometimes helped her scold and blame me.

We fought about it a few times in the beginning.

But every time we fought, he wouldn't go home. Eventually, I had no choice but to give in to him just to have him stay by my side.

After all, I only had him in my life now.

I was born and raised in a well-off and powerful family. And since Joshua Hui only came from a small village, my family looked down upon him. They opposed our marriage. I got angry with my parents when they tried to separate us. As a result, I chose him and cut off relation with my parents.

Since then, I never dared to contact my family again. It had been more than two years. But every time his mother treated me badly, I couldn't help thinking how well my parents had treated me before.

But I didn't have the face to go home. I was an unfilial daughter, and I was so cruel to my parents back then.

Going to the hospital alone, I was so depressed. The doctor told me a piece of good news. "Ms. Xia, congratulations. You are pregnant with twins."

I had twins in my belly. I thought that Joshua Hui would be very happy if he knew. And his mother wouldn't have any reason to make things difficult for me anymore.

Needless to say, I felt very happy and excited.

I planned to surprise Joshua Hui when he got home.

But I didn't expect that I would be the one to receive the most devastating surprise.

I went back home, my heart full of joy. When I opened the door, I saw Joshua Hui sitting on the sofa in the living room.

Wasn't he supposed to be at work? Why was he here so early today? Usually, he went home at around two o'clock in the morning.

What surprised me more was my best friend, Bella Bi, was also there. She was sitting next to him.

Although they were not sitting too close to each other, I still felt a little uncomfortable. I knew that Bella Bi had always liked my husband. Although she never admitted it, my natural instinct as a woman had sensed it.

Fortunately, Joshua Hui didn't show any interest in Bella Bi.

"Did you finish work early today?" I asked as soon as I entered the house.

He just nodded.

When I got closer to them, I noticed that Bella Bi's makeup was smudged. I felt strange. She usually paid much attention to her appearance. She had never gone out of her house looking messy. "Bella, your makeup is smudged. Didn't you check yourself in the mirror before you went out?" I asked.

The expression on her face changed in an instant. She hurried to the bathroom to fix her makeup. When she came out, she said that she had something to deal with and left in a hurry.

I suddenly had a bad feeling. Besides, when I commented on her makeup, I noticed a flash of panic in my husband's eyes.

Moreover, it felt odd that he was at home at this time when he told me earlier that he had to deal with something important in the company.

A gut-wrenching feeling surged up in my heart.

I tried to confront him about it. "Why did you suddenly look nervous when I told Bella that her makeup was smudged?"

He burst out in anger all of a sudden. He picked up the teacup on the table, smashed it on the wall, and shouted at me, "It was all because of you. When did you start to become a shrew? Your only friend came to see you, but then left because you embarrassed her."

Joshua Hui was right. Bella Bi was my only friend now. Since I got married, I also cut tied with the other friends.

Only Bella Bi would come to me and hang around with me from time to time.

His sudden anger startled me. But then, I tried to defend myself. "I didn't mean to embarrass her. We've been friends for five years now and that's how we talk to each other."

He squinted at me and said coldly, "Then, what do you mean? Are you thinking that Bella and I have an affair? Don't forget that I'd already known her before I met you. But I have never fallen in love with her. Now, you're accusing me of having an affair with her? Scarlett Xia, I didn't expect you to be so narrow-minded. You are such a shrew woman!"

He kept on calling me a shrew. Didn't I just ask him gently? He even scolded me a lot in the end.

I wanted to retort, but when I saw him walking out angrily, I got flustered. I was afraid that he would not come back for a few days and nights again. To stop him from leaving, I quickly rushed to him and held his hand. I humbly apologized, although I knew that I didn't do anything wrong.

"Joshua, please don't go. I know I'm wrong. Please forgive me. From now on, I will do whatever you say. Just don't go," I pleaded.

But Joshua Hui just ignored me and shook off my hands. I held his hand again and begged, "Please don't go. I went to the hospital today, and I found out that I'm pregnant with twins. Don't go. Our babies need you."

Finally, he stopped and looked at me.

However, I couldn't see any trace of joy on his face. In fact, he looked even colder. "Scarlett, I thought that you were just a shrew. But I didn't expect you to be cunning too. You even dare to make up a story of getting pregnant with twins just to make me stay?"

He then shook off my hands forcefully and turned around. I almost fell to the floor. Fortunately, I was able to hold onto the shoe cabinet next to me and managed to stabilize myself.
