His highness's Allure - Chap 188
two months later.
The barbarian army is like a broken bamboo, and has occupied most of the territory of the Celestial Dynasty.
Since the fall of the Twelve Frontier Cities, the soldiers of the Celestial Dynasty have been beaten to pieces and have no strength to fight. In time, the enemy army will break through the gates of the imperial capital.
On the surface, the current imperial capital looks calm and peaceful, but in fact, the people are secretly panicking, worried that the cavalry of the barbarians will suddenly break in in a dark night and wash the city with blood.
The emperor’s body was even worse, and it became difficult to even speak. Chao Baiguan had to work hard to maintain the operation of the country under the leadership of Pei Zheng.
The great dynasties and great powers of the past have now come to such a state of lingering.
Many ministers risked their lives to remonstrate and asked the emperor to set the crown prince as soon as possible. If the dragon’s body suddenly fell ill, the court would not be headless, but the emperor refused to issue his decree.
Pei Zheng seems to shoulder the heavy responsibilities as it should, and often spends the night in the palace discussing matters with the ministers. Even if he returns to the mansion, he can only spend a short time with the villain, and then he has to deal with the affairs of the court. and military.
After Li Yu saw Pei Zheng’s carriage parked at the entrance of the prime minister’s residence, he hurried to the back garden to report to Qi Changyi.
Then Xiaolou rushed out of a figure and ran straight to the direction of the study.
Li Yu couldn’t keep up with his speed, and shouted after him, “His Royal Highness! Slow down! Slow down! Don’t fall!”
Qi Changyi ran to the door of the study, pushed open the door lightly, and put his little head in to take a look first, but there was no one inside.
Qi Changyi stepped into the door, closed the door, and whispered as he walked in, “Brother Pei, are you there? I’m coming in by myself”
Still no one answered.
Qi Changyi muttered, “Did Xiao Yuzi lie to me? Brother Pei never came back.”
He turned around and wanted to go out, when he suddenly saw the mist curling up behind the screen in the inner room, and the familiar official robe was casually placed on the screen.
Is brother Pei taking a bath?
Qi Changyi crept over and walked over to the back of the screen to see that there was a large wooden barrel behind it, but unfortunately there was no one inside.
Qi Changyi felt strange, where did people go?
A strong arm suddenly stretched out from his waist, and suddenly he lifted him up into the air, and then the world twirled, “Ye la”, and the little man was carried into the wooden barrel.
The hot water soaked through the robes instantly, and the three thousand black hair that was half-draped behind him was also wet by the water, and it was messy on his cheeks and neck.
Qi Changyi was taken aback, opened his mouth and wanted to exclaim, covered his mouth with one hand, and rubbed his red lips.
Pei Zheng had no clothes on his upper body, and also soaked in the wooden bucket together.
The stern look between his eyebrows slightly subsided, his expression was very tired, his lazy tiredness was obvious, and he put his index finger on his lips and “shush” at the little man.
The little man blinked his eyes mistily and nodded obediently.
Pei Zheng released the hand covering his mouth.
Smoked by the steaming heat, the skin of the little man in front of him was even more fair and translucent at this moment, and it was also glowing with an attractive and delicious peach pink. It is more pure and harmless, but the whole little face is bright and moving.
His neckline was wet with hot water, and now it was tightly against the curve of his body, rising and falling with the gentle shallow breathing.
Pei Zheng’s eyes gradually increased, he pulled the little man and rested his head on his slender shoulders. He was reluctant to exert force. .
Qi Changyi didn’t dare to move. He also saw that Brother Pei seemed to be very tired, so he stretched out his hand to support Pei Zheng’s cheek, trying to make him lean on him more comfortably, and then he was like touching Xiao Miaowu. Touched his face twice.
“Brother Pei is tired, right? You have to take a good rest, sleep well, and don’t exhaust your body, otherwise I will be worried and distressed, you know?”
Hearing his tone, Pei Zheng reprimanded, worried, and acted coquettishly. The corners of his lips raised, “Okay, I’ll listen to you.”
Qi Changyi gave a sweet smile and patted Pei Zheng’s hair, “Brother Pei is good.”
Because of raising his arm, Qi Changyi’s neckline opened a little, and a touch of red lotus petals appeared under his white collarbone.
Pei Zheng sketched it twice with his fingers, then picked up the layer of clothing with his fingertips and peeped down.
A blooming coquettish red lotus was soaked in water, and the ghostly spreading petals spread out in the water, becoming a swaying figure like a fairy.
Pei Zheng didn’t know if it was his own delusion, but he always felt that the skin of the little man seemed to be whiter, tenderer and more delicate, and people became more and more seductive.
His hand continued to slide down the neckline, and he hummed twice like a little man and a kitten in his ear, and then held down his messy hand.
“Brother Pei,” the villain’s voice was soft and sweet, “I, I’m a little uncomfortable.”
Pei Zheng straightened up, most of his exhaustion and sleepiness dissipated, and he touched his forehead nervously, but it wasn’t hot.
“It didn’t get hot, what’s wrong? What’s wrong?”
Qi Changyi fought with heavy eyelids and shook his head innocently, “I, I don’t know if I’m a little dizzy”
Before he finished speaking, he collapsed into Pei Zheng’s arms, all weak.
Pei Zheng hurriedly took the person out of the barrel, grabbed his official uniform and wrapped the villain tightly.
“Come on! Go to Imperial Physician Jiang!”
Jiang Yubai took Qi Changyi’s pulse with an unfathomable expression on his face, and turned to look at Pei Zheng with strange eyes.
Pei Zheng just stared at the little man on the bed and didn’t notice Jiang Yubai’s little movements.
Li Yu asked anxiously, “Doctor Jiang, how is your Highness? Why did you faint again? Your Highness is in good health recently, why is he sick again?”
“Your Highness is not sick.”
“Ah? Why are you so weak that you faint when you’re not sick?”
Jiang Yubai withdrew his hand, “I’m not sick, I’m not sick, I fainted because I didn’t rest last night.”
Li Yu secretly glanced at Pei Zheng. His Highness slept in the same room as the adults last night.
Pei Zheng waved the others to step back, then sat on the edge of the bed and tucked the quilt for the little man who was breathing evenly.
“Tell me what’s going on.”
Jiang Yubai snorted, “Don’t you know what’s going on? You know what you do yourself!”
Pei Zheng’s eyes darkened, his eyes moved down the small figure on the bed without a trace, and settled on his abdomen.
“It’s been a full two months!” Jiang Yubai said bitterly, “I know that you have a lot of time to deal with your hard work, and you need to relax and vent, but in this special period, you still have to control it and don’t hurt him and the child in your belly. ”
Pei Zheng’s eyes filled with surprise and surprise, but he was suddenly covered up by other emotions, “I’m sorry, I don’t know.”
He stretched out his hand and stroked the little man’s stomach twice through the quilt. His fingertips were trembling with guilt and pity. If he knew his body like this, how could he be willing to ram so hard.
“Is he okay? Is the child okay? Has he been hurt?”
Jiang Yubai was very satisfied with Pei Zheng’s nervousness, “Don’t worry, both of them are fine, but take good care of him, his physique is special, and I have no experience in this area, so I can only do my best to keep them both safe. ”
Jiang Yubai paused and said again, “Besides, I heard that the battle is urgent, and the enemy troops will come to the Imperial City in a few days. Can you think of a way out for them?”
Pei Zheng didn’t say a word, just looked at the sleeping face of the little man, his eyes were greedy and nostalgic, and then whispered, “You go out first.”
Jiang Yubai sighed, turned and walked out the door.
After Qi Changyi woke up, it was already dark outside. He didn’t feel any discomfort, but he slept too much and felt dizzy.
The room was empty, as if he was alone.
Feeling aggrieved for a while, Qi Changyi shrank into the quilt and rubbed his eyes. If he hadn’t fainted suddenly, he could have stayed with Brother Pei for a while. Now it seems that Brother Pei must be busy again.
Just as she was sad, she heard the door being pushed open.
Qi Changyi suddenly stuck out his little head from the quilt and called out tentatively, “Brother Pei”
“His Royal Highness, it’s me.” Li Yu came in with the soup and food box, and put it on the table.
“I don’t know what happened in the palace. The adults have entered the palace, and I don’t know when I will be able to return.”
“Oh” Qi Changyi’s face was full of disappointment, and he buried his head back under the quilt.
“His Royal Highness, get up and eat something, and then take the medicine.”
Qi Changyi said sullenly, “I don’t want to eat it, and I don’t want to take the medicine.”
Li Yu stepped forward and persuaded, “Your Highness, you can’t be self-willed now. You haven’t eaten much for a day, how is your body suffering? Even if you don’t think about yourself, you have to think about whether the baby is hungry, right?”
The little body under the quilt suddenly stopped, Qi Changyi sat up straight with the quilt in his arms, and stared at Li Yu with wide round eyes.
“Xiao, Xiao Yuzi, what are you talking about?”
Li Yu smiled, “Your Highness, I just said, don’t starve the baby.”
Qi Changyi blinked the end of his fanned eyes twice, and asked ignorantly, “Little baby? Where is the baby?”
He suddenly remembered something and pointed to his stomach, “Is it here?”
Li Yu nodded with a smile.
All the people in the Prime Minister’s Mansion knew about it, but this little idiot didn’t know about it.
Qi Changyi lifted the quilt and looked down at his flat stomach, pouted, “Little Yuzi lied to me, so young can’t hide the baby at all.”
Li Yu’s mouth twitched, how would he explain this to His Highness.
“Well, Your Highness, the baby hasn’t grown up yet. Now it’s as big as a little bean, so it can be hidden.”
“Then, did the baby become Xiaodouzi?” Qi Changyi asked.
“Uh, this, this, I don’t know. Your Highness will wait until the adults come back and ask the adults. You have to eat quickly so that you can take care of your body and let the baby grow up healthily.”
“Okay! I want to eat two bowls of rice!”
Qi Changyi really ate a lot of food, and he really felt hungry. Fortunately, this time Xiaodouzi didn’t torture anyone, and it didn’t make him feel sick and nauseous.
Li Yu handed the hot soup to Qi Changyi, and before he took a sip, he frowned at the bitter smell.
The door was pushed open, and a tall figure walked in.
When Qi Changyi saw the “bang”, he put down the decoction, then threw himself into the arms of the figure and hugged him tightly, his little head rubbing against his chest.
Li Yu secretly covered her mouth and smiled, then packed the food box and went out, closing the door intimately.
Pei Zheng patted the head of the person in his arms and smiled, “Do you miss me?”
“Thinking about Brother Pei” was full of grievances and intimacy.
Pei Zheng hugged him, let him sit beside the bed, brought the soup over again, put a spoonful of it on his lips and let it cool before bringing it to his mouth.
Qi Changyi closed his eyes and opened his mouth wide, and then his face was wrinkled so hard that he stuck out his tongue.
Pei Zheng leaned over and kissed the corner of his lips, the tip of his tongue hooked around his little tongue.
“Are you still suffering?”
Qi Changyi opened his eyes, his cheeks blushed and shook his head.
After taking a bowl of medicine, Pei Zheng helped Qi Changyi to lie down on the bed. Qi Changyi was worried that he was going to leave again, so he took his hand ahead of time and hugged him to his chest.
“Brother Pei won’t leave, can you stay with me?”
Pei Zheng leaned down, half-lyed on the side of the bed, and wrapped the little man in his arms, “Okay, don’t go, I’ll be with you tonight.”
The little man raised his eyebrows and smiled sweetly, took Pei Zheng’s hand, and slowly put it on his stomach.
“Brother Pei, do you know? There’s a little bean planted here.”
“Xiaodouzi?” Pei Zheng laughed, his fingertips gently drawing a circle on it, “Who told you?”
“Xiao Yuzi.” Qi Changyi looked serious, “Xiao Yuzi also said that if I don’t eat well, the baby will feel hungry, so I need to eat more, let the baby grow up well, don’t always be a small child Beans will do.”
“Well, you’re good.”
With a calm voice, Pei Zheng slid down and changed his posture to embed the little man deeper into his arms.
The moonlight from outside poured in, and it was brightly lit up in the room.
The night wind is warm and soft, the stars and rivers are shining brightly,
Qi Changyi turned his head and saw the stars from under the open window. One of them was big and bright hanging on the edge of the moon, as if to compete with the moonlight.
“Brother Pei, I see, the baby is not a little bean.”
Qi Changyi stretched his finger to the star in the sky, “Baby is a star in the sky, he slipped out of my stomach before and went to play in the sky, now he’s done playing, saying he misses me, misses brother Pei , so come back.”
Pei Zheng’s heart shrank suddenly. These words were said by him to comfort him when they lost their first child. Unexpectedly, he always remembered them.
His arms tightened again, and Pei Zheng lowered his head and kissed his heart.
Those old people in the court said that his little fool was a worthless idiot. When the heaven was in such distress, he couldn’t help the heaven to solve a problem, saying that he was not worthy of being a prince at all, or even a prince of the heaven.
As it happened, Pei Zheng took advantage of the situation and said outrageous words in front of hundreds of officials. Not only did he say that the prince Qi Changyi would never be made a prince, but he also asked the emperor to give an imperial decree to name Qi Changyi’s prince. Take it back and demote it to the common people.
As a result, Qi Changyi fell from the clouds to the red dust and became an ordinary person.
“Now, he is not a prince,” Pei Zheng said to the officials, “just a treasure of the Prime Minister’s Mansion.”
