After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 146
Zhao Zhi’s observation ability was incredible, so how could he not see that Ming Zhu was avoiding him, her eyes were dodging, her little face was twisted, unwilling to look at him.
The more unwilling she was, the more he had to force her.
The man’s fingers, containing a hint of coldness, squeezed her chin with a bit of force, half forcing her to raise her face, her transparent glass-like eyes had a strange glazed color under the daylight, there were conspicuous blood threads in the sockets of her eyes.
Zhao Zhi froze for a moment, “Why are your eyes red like this?”
Ming Zhu warned herself not to mess up the big plan for a small intolerance, she said perfunctorily, “It’s because of the sun.”
Zhao Zhi looked at her cheeks, which had obviously gained some flesh, and did not worry as much, “Let’s go back to the room.”
Ming Zhu did not know whether it was the sight of him that made her nauseous, or if it was nausea caused by the sun, or whether it was because she had been running too fast just now, but anyway she did not feel well at this moment, her stomach overturned, it was blurry in front of her eyes and she felt dizzy, her complexion turned white, she looked ghastly pale under the blinding daylight.
Before she fainted, her hand subconsciously held on to his sleeve.
Zhao Zhi’s complexion immediately changed as both of his hands caught her body.
Ming Zhu had already passed out.
Zhao Zhi carried her back to the room and, with a furious and weak voice, ordered the servants to summon the doctor over.
As Zhao Zhi looked at her white face, his fingers were shaking. Somehow, he was reminded of the image of her lying in that coffin without breath.
He gritted his teeth while he thought, he should not have let her climb up the tree and then jump down again.
She was such a weak person, only being blown by the wind was enough to make her collapse.
The doctor hurried over and quickly started to check her pulse.
The doctor was scared out of his wits for the crown prince was staring straight at him with a cold gaze, but after he was done checking her pulse, he was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief.
Zhao Zhi asked, “What’s wrong with her?”
The doctor hastily gave his congratulations, “Congratulations, Your Highness, the miss is pregnant.”
When Ming Zhu woke up, her head was foggy, and her legs felt sore as soon as she moved.
She slowly opened her eyes and saw a man lying quietly beside her, one of his hands was lazily holding her waist, his eyes were closed as if he was still sleeping.
Ming Zhu couldn’t help but reach out her hand and touch his face, her fingertips gently brushed his eyebrow, but she very quickly withdrew her fingers.
She just remembered that she had fainted earlier.
Maybe it was because the sun was too strong, she thought.
The two of them sleeping together felt a bit stuffy, so she took away his fingers on her waist one by one, then slowly got up from the bed, and carefully went over his body.
The man beneath her seemed to be pretending to be asleep, for he lazily opened his eyelids, before suddenly grabbing her wrist and pressing her against him. Her soft, undulating chest was stuck against his body.
Zhao Zhi had not fallen asleep at all, “Mmh.” He asked in a low voice, “Do you feel uncomfortable anywhere?”
Ming Zhu shook her head and got away from him with difficulty. Straightening her loose lapel, she said, “No.”
She didn’t know anything yet, her round eyes looked a bit confused, “Your Highness, why did I faint before?”
Zhao Zhi paused for a few seconds, he still had not thought about how to tell her, he sat up and rubbed the middle of his eyebrows, his eyes looked at her tenderly, “The doctor said you were too tired, you need to rest well.”
Right now, he still had no intention to tell her that she was pregnant.
Ming Zhu did not doubt the truth of his words, she did tend to feel easily tired lately.
Zhao Zhi got up from the bed and told to her in a gentle voice, “You can lie down for a while longer.”
He lowered the layers of curtains on the side of the bed to block the white light coming through the door and window, and after putting on his clothes, he walked out.
“Hasn’t the medicine been cooked yet?”
“Bring it over.”
Ming Zhu was naturally weak since birth, and being pregnant was not necessarily a good thing, if she was not careful, the baby could not be saved.
But the fact that she was pregnant, he would have to let her know sooner or later, he could not conceal it for long even if he wanted to.
Zhao Zhi closed his eyes, whether she wanted it or not, this child had to stay.
While Ming Zhu was still kept in the dark about this matter, the man very quickly brought a bowl of black medicine. Lifting the curtain, he sat beside the bed, coaxing her to drink the medicine.
Smelling the strong smell of the Chinese herbs, Ming Zhu felt sick to her stomach, she frowned, “Why do I need to drink medicine again?”
Zhao Zhi blew on the hot soup in the bowl and calmly said, “To nourish your body.”
Ming Zhu really did not want to drink the bitter medicine, if she could avoid it, she would definitely avoid it, “All medicines are thirty percent poison, I can eat nourishing foods instead.”
Zhao Zhi already had the spoon in front of her mouth, helpless, he forcefully said, “Open your mouth.”
Ming Zhu could not bear it for a moment, she lied on the side of the bed and heaved.
Zhao Zhi patted her back to smooth her breath, and gave her a few mouthfuls of warm water, with unprecedented patience, revealing a rare gentleness, “You feel better?”
