Chapter 168: My Mysterious Husband
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 168 You can’t die (1)
Venus’ s stares were blank, “My brother is there.”
John was a little numb and explained, “Young lady, you mistake it. Your brother is not in the lake. Let’s go back.” Then he and the maid dragged her to the shore.
“Brother, I want to go find my brother.” Venus struggled, but they didn’t let her go. No matter how Venus struggled, they tried their best to hold her. until Venus was taken back, the two of them were wet all over.
Mrs. Qin also ran over at this time, and seeing this, she knew what she said to her was in vain. She was still determined to die.
“John, give young lady to us.” Mrs. Qin went over to help Venus up. What she needed most now was a hot bath, otherwise she would definitely catch a cold.
A pregnant woman with a cold was very troublesome, for she couldn’t take any medicine. She could only rely on herself to recover, but with Venus’s feeble body, she probably wouldn’t be able to go through it.
Mrs. Qin and the maid carried Venus to the bathroom, quickly taking off her wet clothes and opening the shower head.
“Bring the stool to me.” Mrs. Qin said to the maid.
The maid moved swiftly and Mrs. Qin made Venus sit down.
“Mrs. Qin, wouldn’t it be better to put young lady in the bathtub? Why?” The maid was puzzled.
Mrs. Qin glanced at her, “She’ s pregnant now. Taking a bath is not good for the baby.”
Ten minutes later, Mrs. Qin found that Venus’s leg was not cold. Then she turned off the hot water and dried her body with a bath towel.
“Mrs. Qin, why don’t you just let me die.” Venus lay on the bed, staring at the ceiling. She could have almost reunited with her mom, dad and brother. Why did they stop her?
Mrs. Qin looked at her helplessly, not knowing how to comfort her.
“Leave me alone. I’m tired.” Venus rolled over and turned her back to them.
The huge shadow had completely enveloped her, but she didn’t want to break through the darkness, for she didn’t have any strength left.
Kerry drove home in a hurry after receiving a call from John.
“How’s Venus?” Kerry asked anxiously as soon as he got out of the car.
“She’s in her room.”
Kerry strode upstairs to the bedroom, only to see Venus asleep.
He breathed in relief and sat on the edge of the bed, looking at her face with concentration and affection.
On the way back, his heart was clutched tightly by a pair of hands, and every breath he took carried piercing pain. He had run countless red lights and even almost had a car accident. He couldn’t believe that Venus was still doing something so decisive after so many days of peace. Kerry began to wonder if he really was too selfish to not let her go. But if he kept making her stay here, he would completely lose her.
He had always thought that time could heal any hurt, and even if it couldn’t, he would let her return to the normal life, but he was wrong.
To let her go? What about the baby? This was his first baby and how could he allow it to live with no father?
But if he didn’t let her go, her life would be consumed little by little in this villa, which was not he wanted. he didn’t want her to die.
Venus, you used to be so strong and unconquerable. You knew what, I’d rather you yell at me every day, even if you were trying every possible way to get revenge on me, than for you to be so quiet as a puppet.
Kerry fondled her face and it had been a long time for him to look at her so closely.
In order not to let her in a calm state, he tried not to appear in front of her as much as possible, only gazing at her back from an angle she couldn’t see.
Kerry had never loved anyone and the only little touch was from Xinyou Qiao, then Venus. But he didn’t know how to love her and she didn’t want anything from him. And he couldn’t give what she wanted.
After staying in the room for a while, Kerry left.
John recalled his conversation with Mrs. Qin in the afternoon and said to Kerry, “Young master, young lady’ s spirit will collapse if she continues like this. She is not physically ill, so how about a psychiatrist?”
Kerry rubbed his aching temples and was stunned for a moment when he heard this, “Then ask Dr. Han to find a good for her.”
“Okay, I’m going to call him.”
The next day, Dr. Han arrived with his psychiatrist friend, a beautiful young lady with glasses and a searching light in her eyes.
“Mr. Ye, this is my friend, a very good psychiatrist.”
The beautiful doctor stretched out her hand, “Hello, my surname is Yan, just call me Dr. Yan.”
Kerry shook her hand, “Thanks for coming. I’m Kerry.”
“Where is the patient?” Dr. Yan got straight to the point without pleasantries, for she was paid by minutes.
“Please follow me.” Kerry took them to the door, pushing it open and said, “You guys go in first.”
Venus was sitting on the balcony basking in the sun, wearing a smoky grey knitted dress, with bulging belly. Her long hair softly fell over her shoulders, a very quiet and gentle woman.
She didn’t look back when she heard footsteps, and she was losing interest in anything now.
“Venus, you look much better.” Doctor Han approached her with a gentle smile.
Venus looked back at him and said softly, “Dr. Han, I know your’ re lying.”
“You can actually find that I’m joking?” Dr. Han continued, “You really are the most tough person I’ve ever met, and I can’t remember how many times I’ve saved your life.”
“I don’t remember either.” Venus’s eyes fell on the distant swimming pool. She remembered the time when she was teased by Kerry into jumping into the swimming pool for a pen in order to ask him to lend her a million, but she ended up almost drowning and that time it was Dr. Han who saved her.
Looking back now, she didn’t believe that she could make it.
If she’d known that so much would happen after that, she would have given in to her fate and just drowned in the pool. Maybe her brother wouldn’t have died.
“Venus, this is my friend, do you want to talk to her?” Dr. Han said cautiously.
Without lifting her eyelids, Venus said indifferently, “What do you want to talk about?”
Dr. Yan sat down on the couch across from her with a smile, “Anything you want. I’m a good listener.”
“But I don’t have anything I want to say,” Venus stopped and turned her head to look at Dr. Yan, “Perhaps you can tell me how to die without being stopped.”
Dr. Yan was dumbfounded for a few seconds, for she had never seen a patient ask such a question on their first meeting. She could sense her despair and misanthropy.
Last night, Dr. Han had told her everything she needed to know about Venus. She marveled at her strength while felt sorry for her.

“Venus Mu, the sun is so good out there and there are so many things worth chasing. Why do you want to die?”
Venus smiled and said: “What do those have to do with me? What you gain will eventually be lost. I just want to get to the end of my life in advance. Isn’t that OK?”
Dr. Yan looked at her cold face and said softly: “Can you tell me what’s on your mind?”
Venus was silent. She didn’t want to say anything, and she didn’t have anything to say.
“Don’t be psychologically burdened. You can think of me as a tree hole and say whatever you want to me. Please trust in my professional integrity.” Dr. Yan said. Then Dr. Yan winked at Dr. Han, who nodded and went out.
Kerry Ye waited anxiously at the door of the room with his arms folded. When Dr. Han came out, Kerry asked quickly, “How is she doing?”
“Dr. Yan is talking to her.”
Kerry looked at the closed door with a faint worry in his heart.
If the psychiatrist couldn’t do anything, he really didn’t know what to do.
Nearly half an hour later, Dr. Yan came out somewhat frustrated. She looked at Kerry’s blue eyes and said: “Your wife is suffering from severe depression, and she refused to talk to me.”
“But you spent so much time in there…”
“She kept on asking me a question.”
Kerry had a bad hunch, but he still asked, “What’s that?”
“What’s the most effective way to die?” Dr. Yan said directly.
Kerry’s mind went blank and he felt short of breath. Would he really lose Venus?
“Mr. Ye, you have to be much more patient with a person who wants to commit suicide.” Dr. Yan said. Dr. Yan didn’t want Venus to commit suicide at such a young age.
“I know, but now she wouldn’t listen to anyone. I…”Kerry said painfully, “There’s nothing I can do.”
Dr. Yan thought for a moment and said, “I’ll come back tomorrow and see if anything has changed.”
“Thanks for the trouble.” Kerry said with heartfelt thanks.
“That’s a doctor’s duty. I’ll take my leave.”
Then Kerry walked Dr. Han and Dr. Yan to the door of the villa. “It’s not good for her to be at home all the time. Take her to somewhere she likes when you have time. It’s helpful to the treatment.” Dr. Yan said when she was about to drove away.
After the two doctors left, Kerry thought about where is the place Venus likes. Is there a place she likes? Even if there is a place she likes, she didn’t seem to have told him.
But then a place suddenly occurred to Kerry. Kerry didn’t know if Venus likes it, but he was sure that she won’t hate it.
After lunch, Kerry plucked up the courage to go to the bedroom. Venus nested on the sofa and looked out at the blue sky. She didn’t seem to have left the little balcony since the morning.
“I’m taking you to somewhere.” Kerry said.
Venus didn’t reply and Kerry took it for granted that she had agreed. Then Kerry went to the cloakroom to get a pair of flats and put them on for her.
“Do you want to go downstairs by yourself, or shall I carry you downstairs?” Kerry asked.
Venus was silent for a while and then stood up slowly. Since the result is the same, Venus preferred the one she hates less.
After Venus had taken a few steps, Kerry noticed there’s cold sweat on his palms. He was nervous.
Kerry nursed Venus’s arm down the stairs. The car was already waiting at the door, and Henry’s the driver.
As the car moved slowly along the road, Venus looked out of the window at the cars speeding by. She couldn’t help thinking that if she suddenly ran into the middle of the road, would she die faster.
But the driver would certainly fall on evil days, and may end up in jail, so she abandoned the idea. She just wanted to die quietly and not to cause so much trouble to others.
The landscape became familiar to her, with small restaurants, bookstores and all kinds of roadside stands…
That’s Venus’ university.
Venus got out of the car at the gate of the university. Looking at the students coming in and out, and the smiles on their faces, Venus’s facial expression changed.
This is the place where she grew up fast and gave her dreams wings.
Kerry pulled Venus’s wrist by force and said, “Come on, let’s go inside.”
Venus tried to break free of his hand, but failed.
“Kerry, let me go. I can go by myself.”
“No, there are so many cars and bikes on campus that I’m afraid they might hit you.” Kerry said punningly.
“I won’t kill myself on campus. This is the sea of knowledge and I will not defile it.” Venus said. By her implication, the villa of Ye family is a hell and there is nothing wrong with her dying in the hell.
Kerry didn’t quarrel with her, but he didn’t let go of her hand.
The campus environment is fresh and vibrant, full of youthful atmosphere. Venus closed her eyes and took a deep breath, with the fragrance of osmanthus floating between her nose.
Why the osmanthus’s still blooming at this time of year?
The thing she remembers most clearly is that every year when the freshmen start school, the first sentence the president says at the opening ceremony is “It’s a cool autumn with the fragrance of osmanthus.” The president said the same sentence for four years, therefore, osmanthus has become her most profound memory of the university. Wherever she goes, as soon as she smells the scent of osmanthus, she thinks of her own university. Maybe this is the unique smell belonging to the university.
Kerry took her by the wrist and walked slowly. They walked past the famous Zhixing Road, the girls’ dormitory where she lived, the library where she stayed up late, the teaching building, the vibrant playground…
Kerry’s like a huge magnet, no matter where he went, he attracted a lot of students’ eyes, especially girls’ eyes of admiration. But Kerry was so focused on Venus that he didn’t notice anyone looking at him.
As they passed a summerhouse, Kerry asked thoughtfully, “Are you tired? Do you want to take a break?”
Venus did feel a little tired. When Venus was about to sit down, Kerry said, “Wait a moment, the chair is so cold.” Then he took off his suit and folded it over the marble top of the chair. He completely ignored that the suit that is worth tens of thousands of yuan.
Venus didn’t care about it too and sit down.
Seeing this, the girls passing by were very envious. “Wow, he’s so handsome and so sweet. Why don’t I have such a boyfriend?” They whispered.
Kerry heard their words and he looked down at Venus. “Venus must want to keep away from a boyfriend like me.” Kerry said to himself.
They walked for a while and stopped to take a rest. After walking around half the campus, it was getting dark.
“What do you want to eat?” Kerry asked. Kerry put his arm around Venus’s shoulder and headed for a snack street. Although Venus was disgusted by his behavior, he still wanted to do it. Because there were so many people here and he was afraid of other crowding her.
After the morning sickness was gone, Venus’s appetite was much better. It’s just that she’s in a bad mood that she didn’t eat much.
Venus walked to a noodle restaurant full of people, but Kerry stopped her. “Do you want to eat noodles? There are so many people. Let’s change to another one.” Kerry said.
Kerry spoke so naturally that no nervousness and worry could be heard in his voice.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 168 You Can’t Die (3)
He didn’t dare to let Venus Mu go into the noodle shop because he was afraid that she would order a bowl of Zajiang noodles, which was Tianye Mu’ s favorite. She would collapse.
Venus didn’t seem to think that much and chose a Maocai Restaurant (a kind of hot pot) that looked clean.
“Venus?” A familiar voice was sounded behind her, and Venus looked back, only to see a senior brother that she had met a few months ago.
He was still with a girl. When he saw Kerry Ye, he froze for a moment.
“You…you’re pregnant? Congratulations! This is my girlfriend and we’re planning to get married at the end of the year.” He said so, with no much happiness.
Kerry didn’t recognize the man in front of him was the one who helped Kevin, so he just nodded at him and asked Venus in a low voice, “Is it okay if I order this?”
“Whatever.” Venus said indifferently.
Kerry then placed his suit on the stool and helped Venus sit down.
What he was doing really shocked the man. Since the last time they met, he had checked on Venus’s husband, but he did not expect it to be the CEO of Yehuang Group. Rumors said that he was a very autocratic leader, who was cold, but now he was accompanying Venus to eat in this small shop, which really made the senior brother unable to believe.
And his girlfriend was even more jealous. She immediately noticed that Kerry’ s suit was a luxury, at least 20,000 yuan, and he used such expensive clothes as a cushion for his wife.
“Since we all know each other, why don’t we sit down and eat together?” Senior brother said with hospitality.
Venus smiled at him for his help of last time, “Sure, sit down please.”
Kerry froze for a few seconds, for he hadn’t seen the smile for a long time. He had almost forgotten what her smile looked like. Today, he was too lucky to see her smile.
It seemed that Dr. Yan was right. She needed to go out.
Venus and Kerry sat in a row, with Venus’s senior brother across from her.
“After you asked for my phone number last time, how’ s your friend then?” He tried to find some topics.
“Much better. Thank you.”
“You’re welcome, it’s not a problem.” He answered.
It was only then that Kerry recognized that the man was the one who had given her Dr. Hua’s phone number, so he changed a better attitude towards him.
“Thank you so much. Thank you for saving my brother’s hand.” Kerry thanked heartily.
He was a little nervous, for he knew who Kerry was, so he tried to be polite, “No, no, it’s not a big deal. I just gave you a phone call. By the way, why did you guys come here?”
“Venus said she missed her school and wanted to have a look, so here we are. What about you guys?” Kerry was skilled at lying.
Venus sneered. What a liar.
The senior brother patted his girlfriend’s hand and said, “My girlfriend has never been to our school, so I want to show her around. I didn’t expect to run into you guys, what a coincidence.”
“Well, it’s quite a coincidence.”
Ever since Kerry barged into her vision, she kept fixing her eyes on him instead of looking at her husband.
And what about Kerry? He was already used to this kind of stares, treating her completely like air.
But she didn’t want to put up with the neglect and tugged on her boyfriend’s elbow with a gentle smile, “Why don’t you introduce me to them?”
Senior brother was a little embarrassed. He once loved Venus, and it’s also the first time for him to meet Kerry, so they actually weren’t friends. But he didn’t want to make his girlfriend disappoint, “This is my senior sister, Venus, and this is her husband, Kerry.”
She got curious when she heard the name, staring at Kerry, asking in surprise, “Kerry? Is that Kerry from Yehuang Group?”
Unfortunately, Kerry kept his eyes on Venus the whole time, and didn’t receive any admiration from her. Then he helped Venus to prepare the bowls and chopsticks.
He became more and more embarrassed and seeing that Kerry didn’t answer, he had to explained, “Is there another person named Kerry in City A?”
His girlfriend was completely captured by Kerry, “Wow, I didn’t expect that Mr. Ye is even more handsome than that in the magazine.”
“Thank you.” Kerry responded indifferently.
She then noticed that Venus was pregnant. She then thought that she definitely couldn’t do that with Kerry, so this was definitely a good opportunity for her.
Thinking of this, she bowed her head and smiled.
Kerry ordered the meal first, so it was served first. He gave the chopsticks to Venus and asked with concern, “Do you want rice?”
“No.” Venus said. She didn’t want others to see her real situation, so she tried to be patient.
But she didn’t sense that Kerry had no interest in her at all, “Venus, when you are pregnant, you should eat more so that the child can grow up healthy.”
“Thanks, I will.” Venus didn’t want to embarrass her senior brother, so she answered.
Then, the woman aimed at Kerry, her tone full of admiration, “Mr. Ye, the new women’s clothing launched by your company are really beautiful and I’ve bought several ones.”
Kerry politely said, “Thank you for your support.”
At this time, their dish was served, which was a spicy one and looked even more delicious than what Venus had ordered.
“Mr. Ye, Venus is pregnant and she can’t eat spicy food. Why don’t you eat with us?”
“No, thanks. I don’t like spicy food.” Kerry directly refused, picking the vegetables in the bowl that Venus liked.
