Ethan finally understood how Olivia felt when he arrived at the baby store. Connor was Ethan’s firstborn. He should’ve been more concerned than anyone, but the incident with Leia created a rift between him and Olivia.
He looked at all the baby clothes. They were all very colorful. He finally understood why Olivia had so much to say back then and why her eyes were always glowing.
Everything made for babies looked cute. They were small and soft, but it was like they could heal the soul.
“Look at that little pony, Mr. Miller. It’s so cute. And that toy gun, it’s adorable. These clothes are so tiny. Are they really for babies? It looks like they were made for cats. What about that pacifier? That’s cute too.”
Kelvin was more excited to be in the store than Ethan. Rough men like them looked out of place in a baby store.
A salesperson saw Ethan’s attire and knew he would be a big spender. The watch he was wearing was worth more than the entire shop.
“Nice to meet you, sir. Is your baby a girl or a boy? I can recommend our products to you according to their gender.”
Ethan was stumped. The babies were too young for gender tests.
“I don’t know.”
“No worries, you can look at these designs. They’re suitable for newborn babies, and the colors are
Ethan stared at the pink baby clothes at the side. Deep down, he wished that Olivia would give birth to baby girls. Although she was bearing twins and the chance of a baby girl was big, it wasn’t guaranteed. She could be carrying two baby boys too.
“Looks like you’re fond of baby girls, sir.”
The clothes for girls were more exquisite than those for boys. There were soft lace edges, ribbons, and princess dresses.
Ethan couldn’t imagine how happy he would be if Olivia gave birth to a daughter who looked like her.
The baby would be tiny, delicate, and very adorable. The anticipation for the babies was enough to make Ethan feel content. He was looking forward to the day Olivia would give birth to the babies, which would be in eight months.
Ethan swore that he would protect Olivia this time. He wouldn’t allow her to be hurt.
“I’ll take everything except this one.”
The salesperson’s eyes widened in shock. She didn’t expect to witness something that she only read
about in stories.
“Alright, sir. C-Come this way to make payment.”
Ethan toyed with a rattle toy. It was a pink toy with a picture of a unicorn on it. It looked cute. He could imagine an adorable baby girl playing with the rattle toy in a crib. After picking out the clothes,
he went to a furniture store.
His children deserved the best, so he chose carefully. It was the first time Ethan felt the anticipation for the birth of new lives.
Ethan’s wedding with Marina drew close, but he had been busy the past few days. Marina felt uneasy because she hadn’t seen Ethan for a few days. The people she sent to look into Olivia didn’t even know
where she lived. It was like Olivia had vanished into thin air.
“He must have hidden her.”
“Ms. Carlton, we didn’t find Ms. Fordham, but we noticed Mr. Miller has been buying many baby products.”
Marina smashed the parfait she was eating and yelled, “What did you say?”
Ethan had never slept with her, so she wasn’t the one who was pregnant. She wondered if it was
“Don’t worry, Ms. Carlton. There isn’t any concrete proof for anything. It might be a friend who’s pregnant. He might just be preparing gifts.”
“No, it must be that bitch who’s pregnant. He even hid her. I don’t care what methods you use, you have to find her.”
