Sleeping in the same bed
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Shen Luo’an was so sleepy that he didn’t bother opening his eyes, even when he felt a harsh shove in his arm.
He lifted his hand to grab hers. He turned around and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“You look after the baby. I’m going to get some sleep,” Shen Manting said irritably. “If I wasn’t here, you wouldn’t even bother to tend to the baby, would you? He was crying himself hoarse. He must have been starving!”
Shen Luo’an finally opened his eyes.
His droopy eyes seemed as though glazed over with a layer of mist.
He stared at Shen Manting and said softly, “But you’re here now, aren’t you?”
Shen Manting fell speechless for a moment.
She recoiled from his grip and retaliated, “So you’re not even going to try to bother with him if I’m around, are you?”
“You’ll take care of him.” Shen Luo’an yawned and looked fatigued. “I’m exhausted after a long day at work. Do you want the baby to lose his father after having lost his mother?”
What was he trying to imply?
Shen Manting felt provoked and became frustrated. “What do you mean? How would taking care of a child tire you to death?”
“It’s only a matter of time.” Shen Luo’an pulled the blanket over his head. His voice sounded muffled. “Why don’t you sleep here and keep an eye on the child? I might be too tired to wake up when he cries.”
“Shen Luo’an!” Shen Manting was fuming mad. “I haven’t had my bath yet!”
“Then go and take a bath and come back inside to check on him.”
“No, I’m not sleeping here!”
“What’s wrong with sleeping here? You didn’t even toss and turn at night. You were able to sleep soundly last night, weren’t you?” Shen Luo’an wrapped himself in his blanket. “The baby needs to be tended to. What’s the point of having you here if you don’t bother to look after him?”
Shen Manting was speechless. She struggled to find a fitting comeback. After a long pause, she blurted angrily, “How is it proper for a nanny to sleep in the same room with her employer?”
“You’re the child’s mother,” Shen Luo’an quickly turned his back to her. “A mother should stay in the same room with her child. Just stay here. I’m too sleepy to keep on arguing.”
Shen Manting was enraged by his words. She looked at him, bundled up between the sheets, and pushed him with all her might. “You’re a shameless bastard!”
Shen Luo’an kept silent and lay still.
In a few seconds, he had fallen asleep.
Shen Manting stomped her feet in anger.
She stood up and hastily walked out of the room.
However, as soon as she stepped out of the room, the infant began crying.
Shen Manting waited at the door for a while to see if Shen Luo’an would respond.
True enough, he slept like a log and didn’t respond at all!
The infant wailed even louder; Shen Manting was boiling with anger.
He was such a jerk!
She stomped forward and picked up the infant. She instinctively felt for his rear and noticed that his diaper was soiled with a slimy substance.
After wiping the infant’s rear and changing his diaper, she managed to coax him to sleep. Shen Manting was finally free to take a bath.
She felt fresh and rejuvenated afterward.
She checked the time. It was almost 2 a.m.
She entered Shen Luo’an’s room and turned off the lights in the house.
The infant woke up again in the middle of the night. He opened his eyes and looked around.
Shen Manting reached out and lightly pinched his petite hand. Her heart was filled with affection.
The infant yawned. He couldn’t fight the sleepiness anymore and gradually closed his eyes.
The infant finally fell asleep. Shen Manting felt sleepy, too.
She glanced at the broad bed.
The bed was large. Shen Luo’an was now huddled on the edge of it against the wall.
She hesitated for a moment and recalled that both of them had slept in the same way a few months ago, when they were in Jiangnan.
They were lying in the same bed together, but he didn’t do anything to her.
