Chapter 1861 How Sweet
Hearing that instantly had Harvey making up his mind. However, before he could even voice his thoughts, he heard Arielle saying, “Then you should abort it.”
At that, he pushed the door open and entered the room, unable to hold himself back anymore. “Sonia, let’s get married.”
He had heard Arielle mention Sonia’s name before, and he thought it was a nice name.
Sonia gaped at him, unable to speak properly. “G-Get married?”
Gazing at her, he promised seriously, “Yes. Let’s get married. I won’t let you regret marrying me.”
I won’t let her regret her decision if she agrees to marry me.
When he finished his sentence, he stared at Sonia patiently while waiting for her response.
At last, Sonia finally spoke, “Arielle once told me I should marry someone I like. Likewise, the man has to love me wholeheartedly. Otherwise, I’ll be the one suffering in the future. This is the first time we’re meeting each other officially. Not only do we not know each other well, but we hardly have any feelings for each other. Don’t you think it’s too hasty for us to get married now?” After listening to her, he realized her words made sense. Though he had a good impression of her, he did not really have feelings for her.
Nonetheless, he did not think it was right for him to give up just like that.
“Why don’t we try dating each other for some time? We can get married if we actually develop feelings for each other. Is that okay?” Harvey suggested softly while gazing into Sonia’s eyes, worried she would reject his suggestion.
After a moment of silence, Sonia said, “One month. Let’s try it for a month. If we still don’t have feelings for each other and have no intention to proceed to the next step by then, I’ll abort the child.”
Sonia did not want to marry Harvey straightaway, but accepting the suggestion was a good sign. As long as she was willing to give him a chance, he would do his best to make her fall in love with him.
With that, they decided to put the abortion on hold. Arielle let Harvey send Sonia back to her class, a task which he gladly accepted.
Along the way, he found out Sonia had morning sickness, so he purposely bought some dried fruits to help her cope with it.
Though she said nothing, he could tell that she was pleased with his gesture.
Not long after, he dropped her off at the campus, and they parted ways. He then called Arielle to ask what a pregnant woman could eat if she was experiencing morning sickness.
Hearing that, Arielle could not help but tease him and let him wait. Eventually, though, she sent him a list of food suitable for pregnant women. Harvey went straight to the supermarket and bought two large bags of food. However, as soon as he arrived at the campus entrance, he saw a woman tugging at Sonia, which infuriated him.
He stormed over and glared at the woman pulling on Sonia. Sternly, he ordered, “Let her go.”
“Who are you? This is my daughter. Surely how I treat her has nothing to do with you?”
Harvey was flabbergasted. It never occurred to him that the woman in front of him could be Sonia’s mother, his future mother-in-law.
Ugh! Why am I so unlucky? I can’t believe I offended my future mother-in-law on the first day we met!
Nevertheless, his heart ached when he saw the pained look in Sonia’s eyes.
So what if she’s Sonia’s mother? That doesn’t mean she can treat Sonia so roughly.
