After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 87
~End of chapter 86
Ming Zhu, after bathing, slowly got into bed, she was used to sleeping on the inside part of the bed and she curled up inside the blanket, closing her eyes and pretending to sleep.
Not long after, Zhao Zhi lied down beside her. Reaching out, he put his hand on her thin shoulders and turned the person around. His breath was slightly cool, “Is your body feeling well now?”
Ming Zhu wanted to lie to him but didn’t dare to.
Zhao Zhi’s fingers were already exploring her waist, his fingers, with a gentle pull, loosened her belt, which was put aside. The man held her wrists and tackled them on the pillow. His black eyes looked unfathomable as he quietly stared at her for a while.
Then, with his free hand, he used her belt to cover up her eyes, tying a loose knot.
Ming Zhu’s sight was blinded by the belt, it was dark, and she couldn’t see anything.
She cowered even more as her senses were magnified several times. She negotiated with him, with a nice tone, “Don’t cover my eyes, it makes me afraid.”
Her voice was gentle and tender, like a small dumpling that would reveal its filling when being pinched.
(TL’s note : okay author, weird comparison here, for real >.>)
Zhao Zhi couldn’t stand to look at these eyes, and at this moment, he didn’t even want to hear her talk.
Whenever he met those eyes, he would be reminded of the words she had said to Zhao Xin.
Those words were flat and indifferent, but they did come from her true heart.
After kissing her between her eyebrows, Zhao Zhi’s cold kiss then fell on the woman’s white collarbone.
He pressed her wrist tightly against the pillow, as his eyes darkened furthermore. As he lost control, his teeth pierced the delicate skin on the back of her neck. Ming Zhu said “It hurts”.
The madness inside Zhao Zhi’s eyes then receded. He rubbed her head in a soothing manner, “I’m sorry.”
Under the red candle lights, the warmth inside the covers went on until it was almost dawn.
Ming Zhu hadn’t been so overworked in a long time, thus no one disturbed her sleep and they let her sleep until the afternoon.
She woke up with a hungry stomach.
From the moment she woke up, Biying was all smiles. After she washed up, the maidservants brought her meal into the room.
As Ming Zhu was drinking the porridge, she suddenly remembered an important thing, “I haven’t drunk the medicine yet.”
Biying said, “His Highness said that miss does not need to drink the contraceptive soup anymore.”
He did say that, but she didn’t take it seriously.
Ming Zhu felt that this wouldn’t do. She put down the spoon and looked up at Biying, “You let them cook a bowl of it for me. In secret. Don’t tell the crown prince.”
In the future, when she will be in Jiangnan, she still had the intention to marry a good man ah.
She didn’t want to get pregnant with Zhao Zhi’s child.
Of course, Biying would never dare to do so. Hearing Ming Zhu’s words, the vision in front of her eyes blacked out for a moment.
This was obviously a good thing, but miss Ming Zhu seemed to be very opposed to it.
Since His Highness was willing to let miss Ming Zhu become pregnant, in the future by relying on the child, miss Ming Zhu’s status would be higher and she wouldn’t just be a concubine who could be sold at any time.
Biying was absolutely panicked, “I’m afraid no one in the kitchen would dare to recklessly cook the medicine for you to drink.”
Ming Zhu also knew the difficulties of the servants below her. Pondering for a moment, she asked: “Is Liu momo still in the residence?”
Biying nodded, “She has always been here.”
Ming Zhu said, “Then, in a moment, you help me go and ask Liu momo to come over, okay?”
Liu momo could be said to be the one who couldn’t stand her the most in the crown prince’s residence. From the bottom of her heart, she was absolutely convinced that she had used her fox charm to seduce Zhao Zhi’s soul, and that she had used her beauty to coax him into doing such an absurd thing as keeping an outside mistress.
In the past, every time they slept together, Liu momo, as long as she wasn’t busy, would definitely come over to personally watch her drink the contraceptive soup, fearing that if she was inattentive for even one moment, Ming Zhu would become pregnant with the crown prince’s bloodline.
Since it wasn’t possible to go through Biying, she had to find another way. Liu momo would surely be happy to prepare the medicine for her.
Biying nodded, “Okay.”
Not long after, Biying went to invite Liu momo over.
After closing the door and the windows, Ming Zhu looked at Liu momo and directly said, “I have a favor to ask momo.”
She lowered her voice and continued, “I would like to ask momo to cook a medicine for me.”
Liu momo understood her meaning, “Miss Ming Zhu, don’t try to harm me, I wouldn’t dare to do such a thing.”
Although she couldn’t stand this lowly concubine, but there were things she still wouldn’t dare to do, like going against the master’s orders.
Besides, she wasn’t worried at all.
The medicine had long since deteriorated Ming Zhu’s body, there was absolutely no need anymore for special contraception, it was already very difficult for her to conceive.
Ming Zhu didn’t expect that even Liu momo wouldn’t help her with the medicine, “In that case, you can pretend that I didn’t say anything.”
“This old slave will retire now.”
Ming Zhu stayed inside her room to deeply consider the matter, who else could help her with this?
At that moment, the round-faced girl from yesterday came to see her again.
Today, the little lady was wearing a particularly bright red dress, she looked radiant.
Ming Zhu felt that Zhao Zhi must definitely cherish her very much, because she was naive and free from the inside out. She had the carefree spirit of a young girl.
She started to chatter beside Ming Zhu, “You’re finally awake, I’ve already come twice to see you today!”
She came once in the morning, but was ruthlessly kicked out by her brother with a cold face, and then once again at noon, only to be told by the maidservant that she was still sleeping.
Zhao Xin was not a little girl who didn’t know anything, and after realizing what it meant, her little face turned red and she ran away with a yell.
Zhao Xin’s eyes stopped on her, but seeing the marks on her neck, she immediately averted her gaze, “I wanted to take you outside to have fun.”
Being alone, confined in the backyard, how unbearable ah !
