who had invaded their family luncheon. Suddenly, there was a piece of pork ribs on her plate. Stella turned to Keegan. However, he did not look at her and merely indifferently said, “Take whatever you want yourself.” ‘No, I’m not an outsider. I’m just a temporary actor at this family luncheon. Keegan and I are just exchanging favors,’ thought Stella. At this thought, she promptly felt rebellious. ‘You want me to put on a show? Fine, I’ll put on a show!’ she thought again. Then, Stella picked up a piece of spicy chicken and took it to Keegan’s lips. “Babe, try this.” Keegan froze and gave her a weird look. However, Stella smiled with her eyes and had an affectionate expression. ‘Keegan doesn’t like to eat spicy food. I picked something spicy on purpose. Let’s see how he’ll continue to put on a show! If he rejects me, he’ll ruin the show. Then, he won’t be able to put the blame on me,’ Stella thought smugly. While she was deep in thought, Keegan suddenly leaned over. He opened his mouth and bit the chicken slice. Keegan’s lips suggestively slid across the tip of her fork before finally taking in the chicken slice. Then, he said to Stella’s dumbfounded expression, “Not bad.” Stella was speechless. ‘You dog! Die of spiciness!’ she thought. Dahlia glanced at the two. Then, she lowered her gaze thoughtfully. A few glasses of wine later, Keegan’s phone rang. Dahlia waited until Keegan went out to answer his phone before setting down her cutlery. She asked Stella, “Stella, how long has your stomach been feeling unwell? Did you puke?” ‘Don’t tell me she thinks I’m pregnant,’ thought Stella. She could only explain, “I’m not pregnant. I just had my period last week.” However, Dahlia did not seem to buy it. She continued, “Did you take the medicine I gave you previously on time?”  Hearing about the medicines made Stella’s stomach churn abruptly. Dahlia had been very persistent about Stella’s pregnancy. For some reason, she thought Stella must be the reason the two could not bear a child. Over the years, she had been seeking doctors and medicines and making Stella take a “fertility drink”. ‘Keegan’s sexually frigid, and I can count the number of times I see him in a year with a single hand. I’m not a stick insect; I can’t produce asexually. If Keegan’s not willing to cooperate, how will I conceive?’ thought Stella. “I did.” Stella knew Dahlia did not believe her, so she added, “Maya watched me drink it.” Aurora snorted sardonically, “What did I tell you, mom? She’s infertile. What’s the point of giving her so much of the best medicines?” Dahlia glanced at her and said in a neutral tone, “Don’t interrupt.” Aurora pouted and rolled her eyes. Dahlia asked again, “Did you and Keegan use contraceptives?” Stella was speechless. ‘Couldn’t she have asked it in a more reserved manner rather than being so blunt?’ she wondered. She took a deep breath and answered honestly, “No.” ‘We really didn’t. Keegan has a clear picture of my menstrual cycle; he always avoids my ovulating days. That’s why it’s impossible for me to get pregnant even when we don’t use protection,’ thought Stella. Dahlia sighed, “I was too impatient.” Just as Stella was about to breathe a sigh of relief, she saw Dahlia ask Aurora to pick up and open the box on the floor. Inside the box was a neat row of bottles filled with black-brown liquid. Dahlia unscrewed a bottle and pushed it in front of her. Suddenly, a bizarre smell of herbs wafted toward her. Her fear of the “fertility drink” came rushing back. Stella promptly felt queasy in her stomach. She wanted to throw up. “One of my friends introduced me to an expert in Hong Kong. Her daughter’s like you. she had a hard time conceiving. After she consulted the doctor for half a year, she managed to conceive twins. This time around, Aurora coincidentally went to Hong Kong, so I got her to see the expert for me. She told him about your situation, and he readjusted the ingredients. This is a new concoction that has better effects than the one before. I got someone to prepare it for you. You need to take it on time every day. Once you’re done with these, I’ll send new ones.” Stella was speechless. “Dahlia, I don’t think this medicine works. I’ve been taking it for over a year now. The last time I went for a checkup, the doctor said that my body’s pretty great.” ‘I really want to tell her to let her son have the medicine instead. He’s the problem,’ she thought. Aurora said sardonically, “Why can’t you conceive if your body’s fine? With that body of my brother, someone else would’ve had two babies within three years. I really don’t know why my brother married you. You’re a freeloader who can’t even bear a single child!” Stella’s expression darkened when she heard that. Then, she glanced at Aurora icily. Aurora had a mocking expression as if she was certain Stella would not retaliate. To her surprise, Stella suddenly said, “Not conceiving is still better than conceiving and aborting it.” Aurora paled, “What are you saying?” “Nothing.” Stella shrugged, “I went to the hospital for a checkup previously, and I saw some young girls getting abortions. I just had a thought,
