After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 151
~End of chapter 150
“Then you tell them to come to my room less often, I don’t need them to serve me a lot.” Ming Zhu was unsure in her heart, she didn’t know whether he was going to agree or not. She suddenly took his hand and placed it on her slightly protruding belly, “He told me that he wants to sleep.”
Zhao Zhi was amused by her childish words, “You can talk to them yourself.”
“They don’t obey me.”
With these two words, Ming Zhu had a plan in her heart. As long as the maidservants in her courtyard obeyed to her orders, she could make them go away at any time.
Ming Zhu had something else to say to him, “Your Highness, my little concubine-born brother is getting married in a couple of days, I want to go see what the bride looks like.”
Zhao Zhi hesitated for a moment, “You can go, but bring more people.”
Ming Zhu pretended to be obedient and compliant, “I will.”
Zhao Zhi was even more easy to talk to today than she had imagined he would be, it was almost like he would fulfill all of her requests. Ming Zhu lowered her head to look at her belly, feeling that she was benefiting from the baby’s halo.
Zhao Zhi also looked at her belly. His eyes contained some softness when he did. It was not to say that he liked the baby very much, he just felt that the look in Ming Zhu’s face as she looked at the baby was very gentle. By now she was probably unable to bear parting with the baby.
Zhao Zhi asked her, “Did he make trouble for you today?”
Ming Zhu was forced to sit on his lap, as he held her around her waist from behind. She said, “No, he doesn’t make any trouble.”
There was a protectiveness in the tone of her voice that she herself didn’t even notice.
Zhao Zhi’s hand slowly moved to her belly. His palm was warm. He laughed, “He’s unexpectedly well-behaved.”
It was good to be well-behaved, just like his mother.
Although it was not yet known whether it was a boy or a girl, but Zhao Zhi wanted a daughter.
Ming Zhu didn’t know what to say, so she simply didn’t speak anymore. As she quietly leaned in his arms, unintentionally her eyes fell on the red invitations on the table. Her eyes paused, then she lowered her eyelids, deliberately ignoring the intermittent piercing sensation in her heart.
She originally thought that she would not feel sad at all, but now that she was really seeing Zhao Zhi about to marry someone else, it wasn’t so easy to be indifferent about it.
When Ming Zhu was sad, she wanted to sleep. As long as she fell asleep, she could forget the things that made her suffer.
It didn’t take long for her eyelids to start closing, and she simply rested on his shoulder and fell asleep.
As she was half asleep, half awake, her body was suddenly lifted up in the air. Zhao Zhi took off her socks for her and put them on the bed and after tucking her in the quilt, afraid that the light outside the window would disturb her sleep, he raised his hand to lower the bed curtains, blocking the light of the day.
Zhao Zhi finished writing the rest of the invitations, and then walked to the bed to look at her. When she was sleeping, her body and mind were completely relaxed, her round and soft face was nestled in the quilt, white with tinges of red, her complexion looked exquisite. Being able to watch her sleep like this, it was like his heart was getting appeased. He liked the way she completely relied on him. When her pitiful eyes looked at him. It would be the best if her eyes could only see him alone.
Zhao Zhi felt that Ming Zhu, now that she was pregnant, compared to before, became even more soft.
She should stay with him like this for a lifetime.
Zhao Zhi sat on the edge of the bed and gently stroked her belly with his palm, whispering to the child in her belly, “Don’t make your mother uncomfortable.”
Ming Zhu’s stomach was touched, and even in her dreams she subconsciously used her hands to protect her belly.
Zhao Zhi’s face revealed a little rare tenderness, as he silently thought, she probably also loved this baby very much now.
Ming Zhu slept from dusk until the next morning. After she was done dressing, she ordered the servants to prepare the carriage, saying she was going out.
Ming Zhu went back to the Ming family. This time, no one slighted her, and she was welcomed into the residence through the main gate.
Ming Zhu was not close to her soon-to-be-married concubine-born brother, she also did not have any grudge towards him, she was just using him as an excuse to come back.
She was dressed in a relaxed manner today, and even if one looked carefully, it was impossible to tell that she was pregnant.
Seeing her come back in style, the other daughters of the Ming family really had red eyes.
But fortunately, Ming Zhu did not intentionally show off in front of them, or else they would really be angered to death.
After Ming Zhu offered the wedding gifts to her concubine-born brother, she then ordered someone to call Ah Rou over, saying she wanted to catch up with her.
Ah Rou was doing well in the residence, she had a spirited and bold nature and didn’t let anyone bully her.
Ming Zhu did not have much time, so she could only talk about the important topics. She asked Ah Rou to find a way to get her an abortion medicine.
Ah Rou had always listened to her orders, and she very quickly provided her with the medicine.
Just when Ming Zhu got the medicine in her hand, Biying urged her outside the door, “Miss, it’s time to go back.”
The Ming family very politely sent Ming Zhu back to the door. Looking at her attitude, she did not look like a daughter who had been sold, but rather like a precious guest who needed to be treated with respect. They couldn’t wait to send this little Buddha away, to avoid her staying here and causing trouble again.
Ming Zhu had spent a lot of time with Zhao Zhi and had learned a few of his skills to hide her emotions. With the hidden medicine in her sleeve, her heart was beating like a drum, but she looked calm on the surface.
