Shen Tiantian’s body stiffened for a moment as she slowly turned her head and saw Manager Tian looking at her with an unpleasant expression.


People in the office were sneakily stealing glances, well aware that once she entered, there would be another “office meeting.”

In the past, she wouldn’t have minded, but for some reason, this time it made her uncomfortable.

She attributed this strange change to her pregnancy.
Indeed, since becoming pregnant, her taste buds had changed, her temper had become a bit more irritable, and she sometimes found herself inexplicably displeased with herself.

Shan Yue said it was due to hormonal changes in her body and advised her to relax.

After that day, she inexplicably found Shan Yue added to her WeChat, and she occasionally received greetings from her.

Shen Tiantian unconsciously frowned, making an effort not to look at her colleagues’ faces and kept her head down as she followed Manager Tian into the office.

The sound of the door closing brought her back to reality, even if only momentarily.
Manager Tian was already sitting in her designated seat and gestured casually for Shen Tiantian to sit down.
Her gaze fell on Shen Tiantian’s belly, and her expression became complex.

Shen Tiantian followed Manager Tian’s gaze and realized she was indeed looking at her belly.
Subconsciously, she lifted her hand to cover it.

She took the initiative and asked: “Manager Tian, do you have something to discuss with me?”

Quickly retracting her gaze, Manager Tian cleared her throat and said in an unhurried tone: “The CEO said you are pregnant.”

Shen Tiantian was taken aback.
She couldn’t understand why Shan Yi would tell Manager Tian about this.
Caught off guard, she nervously grabbed the hem of her clothes and nodded.

“She hopes you can work on the 18th floor,” Manager Tian’s peach-shaped eyes stared fiercely at Shen Tiantian, as if wanting to devour her whole, “Do you know about this matter?”

Shen Tiantian thought for a moment and realized there was indeed such a thing.

At that time, she was still in the hospital, and she had been enjoying these days too much, forgetting about this matter temporarily.

So, the reason the CEO came to see Manager Tian was for this.

But did it really require her to come in person?!

A simple phone call or a message from her assistant would have sufficed.

 Shen Tiantian murmured in her heart and nodded, saying: “She did mention it to me.”

“Then do you want to go up there?” Manager Tian wasn’t surprised.

Shen Tiantian smiled awkwardly, “To be honest, I didn’t really want to at first.”

Manager Tian glanced at her belly again and subconsciously felt that it was because of the little one inside her.

“At first? What changed your decision later?” Manager Tian inquired.

“It’s not that.
I had some issues that day and stayed in the hospital for a few days.
The CEO might have gotten a bit too nervous and insisted on me going to the 18th floor.” Shen Tiantian touched her earlobe uncomfortably.


She didn’t want to talk about it, especially since they were just colleagues with a hierarchical relationship.
She never liked sharing private matters with colleagues, let alone with her boss.

However, since Manager Tian asked about the reason, she had to say a few more words, “But I also have a personal reason.
I hope the baby can have more interactions with her other mom.”

Manager Tian’s expression became complicated, “Are you sure you won’t regret your decision?”

Shen Tiantian was stunned for a moment before she finally understood what Manager Tian meant.

 She blinked her eyes, and memories of her time with Shan Yi were still vivid, as if it had just happened.
She nodded firmly and said, “I’m sure.”

“Alright then,” Manager Tian sighed heavily and pushed a small A5-sized white paper in front of her.
“This is the transfer letter.
I’ve already signed it.
You can hand over your work this afternoon or tomorrow and go straight up.”

Looking at the thin piece of paper before her, Shen Tiantian bit her lip.

Holding this transfer letter meant that she would soon leave the Marketing Department.

After hesitating for a moment, Shen Tiantian picked up the transfer letter and smiled at Manager Tian.
“Thank you, Manager Tian.”

Manager Tian remained expressionless.
“You can go now.”

Shen Tiantian nodded and thanked her again before walking towards the door.
However, just as she was about to step out, she stopped and turned back to ask: “Manager Tian, aren’t you curious about why I got pregnant?”

Manager Tian was momentarily stunned, then snorted, “Not curious.”

Shen Tiantian didn’t know why she asked such a question, and by the time she realized it, the words had already left her mouth.
She received Manager Tian’s cold snort, which was entirely expected.

 She shrugged and left the office.

As soon as she sat down, Lu Xiaochun immediately leaned in, deliberately speaking in a low voice, “What did Manager Tian want with you?!”

Shen Tiantian was about to shake her head, thinking that Lu Xiaochun would find out tomorrow anyway during the handover, but she might as well tell her in advance to avoid being questioned later.

She handed the transfer letter to Lu Xiaochun, saying, “See for yourself.”

Curiously, Lu Xiaochun took the letter and when she saw the bold black words, her eyes widened.
“You’re transferring?!”

Because she was too surprised, Lu Xiaochun’s voice was a bit sharp, and her words caught the attention of colleagues who were working nearby.
Those with sensitive ears began to approach them.

Colleague A: Who’s transferring?!

Meng Yan: Is Supervisor Shen transferring?

Colleague C: Really? Which department is she transferring to?!

More and more inquiries echoed in the office, becoming louder and louder.
Soon, almost the entire office was buzzing with excitement.


Shen Tiantian: …

Great, now she didn’t need to wait until tomorrow; everyone knew.

Lu Xiaochun covered her mouth, looking at Shen Tiantian with a pitiful expression.
“I’m sorry.”

Shen Tiantian sighed, “It’s okay, sooner or later, everyone would have found out.”

It was just a matter of time.

Shen Tiantian just nodded and didn’t directly answer their questions.
Perhaps due to the lack of fresh air or the loud noise, it made her head feel dizzy, and her chest felt stuffy.

The feeling of nausea stuck in her throat, and she had to hold it in, or else she would vomit.

Her face turned pale, and she forcefully swallowed, trying to suppress the urge to vomit.

“What are you all doing?”

A cold and unquestionable voice rang out in the large office, successfully rescuing Shen Tiantian from her distress.

She took a deep breath of fresh air, but couldn’t hold back the nausea.
Without even thanking Manager Tian, she covered her mouth and rushed to the restroom.

Furrowing her brows, Manager Tian glanced at them, then stepped in her high heels and went to the restroom as well.

 “Urgh… Cough cough…”

As soon as she entered the restroom, Shen Tiantian felt relieved and leaned on the sink to vomit.

She had already vomited once in the morning, but the eel vinegar-steamed egg dish that Shan Yi made for her helped alleviate the discomfort.
However, now it all came out.

After the feeling of nausea passed, Shen Tiantian rinsed her mouth with water and looked helplessly at the vomit in the sink.
She had to use water to wash it away bit by bit.

Manager Tian walked in, frowned at Shen Tiantian, and sighed silently out of her sight, then handed her a tissue without saying a word.

“Thank you,” Shen Tiantian said weakly.

It seemed like Shen Tiantian’s morning sickness was quite severe.
Finally, Manager Tian understood why Shan Yi transferred her to the 18th floor.
She must be worried.

Manager Tian casually asked: “How many months?”

Shen Tiantian didn’t react immediately and thought for a moment before replying: “Just a little over one month.”

“You’re feeling so uncomfortable, don’t you plan to take a break?” 

Shen Tiantian shook her head.
She couldn’t stand being idle and felt insecure.
She was afraid of overthinking things if she stayed at home.


Besides, she was only a little over one month pregnant, apart from the severe morning sickness, she was doing fine.
She didn’t want to detach herself from society at all.

 “Up to you,” Manager Tian said expressionlessly, then entered one of the cubicles.

Shen Tiantian found it a bit strange.
Since knowing about her pregnancy, Manager Tian had been acting strangely.
And how did she know about the pregnancy symptoms and timing?!

Shen Tiantian decided not to dwell on it and washed her face before leaving the restroom.

Now, everyone in the marketing department knew that Shen Tiantian was leaving.
They were all guessing where she would be transferred to.
When it was time to leave, people grabbed her to get some inside information, asking whether she got promoted or demoted and other various questions.

Shen Tiantian was annoyed by the questions and could only reveal that she was going to the 18th floor.

Lu Xiaochun realized she had made a mistake and kept apologizing, “I’m sorry, Tiantian, I was just too surprised.”

Knowing her personality, Shen Tiantian didn’t blame her and smiled: “It’s okay.”

“Are you eating with the CEO later? If you don’t have plans, let me treat you to a bubble tea.”

Shen Tiantian licked her lips.
She hadn’t had bubble tea in a while, and when Lu Xiaochun mentioned it, she suddenly craved it.

 She wasn’t sure if she could drink it, so she searched on Baidu and found that it was okay to drink milk tea in moderation.

After some consideration, she decided to message Shan Yi and ask if she could have milk tea.
When she got the permission, she felt as happy as a child.

Shan Yi had just taken over Yue Feng and had a mountain of work to deal with after a few days of consecutive rest.
She had just signed a document when she received Shen Tiantian’s message.

Thinking about the rush hour and the crowded streets during the evening, she was a bit worried and kept reminding Shen Tiantian to be safe.

Shen Tiantian: Don’t worry, the milk tea shop is just across the street, and I’m with Lu Xiaochun.

Reading Shen Tiantian’s message, Shan Yi shook her head.

Shen Tiantian: Have you eaten yet? The cafeteria seems to have a rich variety of dishes today.

Shan Yi: Not yet, but you should eat more.

Shen Tiantian: How about I pack some for you?!

Shan Yi gladly accepted the offer.

Upon learning that Shan Yi hadn’t eaten yet, Shen Tiantian only took a few sips of the milk tea before heading to the cafeteria with Lu Xiaochun.

  She ordered two servings of her favorite salad, sweet and sour pork ribs, a bowl of plain congee, and a plate of egg fried noodles.

Her appetite was not great, and after taking a few sips of the milk tea, her stomach felt uncomfortable and bloated.


“The CEO hasn’t eaten yet?” Lu Xiaochun asked when she saw Shen Tiantian buying two portions of food, immediately thinking of Single Yì.

Her guess was correct.

Shen Tiantian nodded and confirmed, saying: “Yes, she hasn’t eaten yet.
I’ll go up first.”

Lu Xiaochun smiled understandingly and playfully winked, “The CEO is more important, go ahead.”

Shen Tiantian was amused by her expression, and with the packed food in hand, she left.

She directly pressed the button for the 18th floor in the elevator.

At this time, most people were still having their meals, and the elevator smoothly arrived at the 18th floor.

The lights were already turned off here, and the entire office was empty.

  She had been here two or three times before, so she was somewhat familiar with the layout.
She still had some hesitation while finding Shan Yi’s office.

When she pushed the door open, she saw Shan Yi and Assistant Yang discussing work, and she was so scared that she didn’t dare to make a sound.

Feeling at a loss, Shen Tiantian stood to the side.
She didn’t know what Shan Yi said, but suddenly Assistant Yang glanced at her, then stood up straight and walked past her.

Single Yì stood up, went over to take the things from Shen Tiantian’s hand, and glanced at her milk tea before taking a sip.

“Is the milk tea delicious?” she asked.

“It’s delicious,” Shen Tiantian instinctively replied: “Would the CEO like to try some?”

Shan Yi pointed to her own lips, indicating that she wanted Shen Tiantian to feed her.

Shen Tiantian chuckled and quickly put the straw into Single Yì’s mouth.

Single Yì took a sip and softly said: “It’s really sweet.”

“Huh?! I ordered it with only thirty percent sugar.”

Shan Yi looked at her and smiled playfully.

Shen Tiantian suddenly realized that she had also used that straw before, and then understood what Shan Yi meant by “sweet,” instantly blushing.

She felt both embarrassed and annoyed, “You are so shameless.”
