AMTDCPOTEC Chapter 55
After Marrying the Disabled Crown Prince of the Enemy Country
Chapter 55 Nonsense
Although displeased, Huo Du did not take it to heart. Until dinner a few days later…
The table was full of dishes, completely different from the usual. Upon a closer look, every dish had a hidden mystery.
Three-wire braised blackfish, okra roasted chicken heart, sautéed beef, and mutton… Even the chicken soup had a lot of fungus and ginseng added to it.
Huo Du swept over each dish expressionlessly, and his heart was clear. Then he turned his head to look at Le Zhi, who was serving soup, only to see her blushing face, not knowing whether it was because of the heat of the chicken soup, or because of something else.
“Your Highness, quickly taste it.” Le Zhi smiled and put the soup bowl in front of Huo Du.
The chicken soup was well-simmered without any excess oiliness. But Huo Du did not like meat and fishy food, only reluctantly drank two mouthfuls before putting down the silver spoon. Then he frowned slightly and glanced at the dishes on the table again, without any interest in taking the silver chopsticks.
Le Zhi quietly looked at him from the side, and when she saw his expressionless face, she could not help but feel a little annoyed. It seemed that she was trying every means when she was desperate. She clearly knew his eating habits, but still prepared these meat and fishy dishes for him.
While she was thinking about whether to call someone to remove these dishes and replace them with some lighter dishes, the person beside her quietly picked up the silver chopsticks and began to eat them in small bites.
But his brows were furrowed, obviously not used to eating these things.
When Huo Du went to pick up the mutton again, Le Zhi stopped his hand hastily, “… don’t eat it.”
Huo Du seized the opportunity to put the silver chopsticks down, then glanced at her, and said lightly, “It was specially prepared for me, right? Why didn’t you let me eat it?”
Hearing this, Le Zhi’s eyes widen in surprise, and she immediately shrank her neck.
Yes, his medical skills are so brilliant, how can he not know the function of each ingredient?
Her heart seemed to be beating like a drum, and Le Zhi’s little face turned from red to white, and then from white to red. She did this out of good intentions, but it was indeed a little careless. She even sprinkled salt on the person’s wound, which was really unkind.
The more she thought about it, the more uncomfortable she became.
This illness seemed to have no effect on Huo Du in the first place. On the contrary, she behaved too unusually. Compared with this hidden disease, Le Zhi found that her actions were even more hurtful.
Under the excuse of treating his illness for his own good, it actually reminded him of his own shortcomings.
Hidden disease… Did it have to be cured?
It was she who did not take his feelings into consideration, so it was her fault.
“I’m sorry…” Le Zhi sincerely apologized. She lowered her head, and her voice was getting lower and lower, “I shouldn’t be shrewd.”
I will not do it again in the future.
After a while, Huo Du hummed softly, as if accepting her apology. Le Zhi heaved a sigh of relief in her heart, only taking that this matter was over.
Le Zhi never thought that at night, when she was teasing the little show fluffy on the bed, Huo Du came out of the bathroom as usual and walked to the bed. Seeing him getting onto the bed, Le Zhi lifted the brocade quilt on her body and covered it on Huo Du. Not knowing when they began to get used to the same quilt.
Perhaps because the quilt was too big, the two of them covered it just right together.
The bedroom was warm, accompanied by a touch of sandalwood, but soon, the sandalwood was overshadowed by the faint mint fragrance.
Le Zhi’s eyelids gradually closed. She looked at Huo Du, who was reading a book seriously and hugged snow fluffy under the quilt. When she was about to fall asleep, she suddenly felt that a strand of her hair had been twirled and played by his fingers, which made the top of her head itchy.
But she was used to it. Huo Du always liked to play with her hair before going to sleep.
Just let him be.
He played his and she slept hers.
“Le Zhi, shall I find you a few little lovers?”
Le Zhi’s sleepiness disappeared in an instant, she sat up in horror and looked at the person leaning on the embroidered pillow in disbelief. He was also looking at her with a half-smile, and her hair was still wrapped around his fingers, circle after circle.
She was a little lost, wondering if she had auditory hallucinations or entered a dream.
“What?” Huo Du rolled his eyes slightly, and said with a smile, “Are you happy?”
This time, Le Zhi was completely awake. She was not dreaming. It was this lunatic who started talking nonsense again!
“What… what do you mean?”
Huo Du chuckled, leaned closer to her, and asked, “Come on, tell this brother. What kind of young man do you like? Is it a martial artist like An Xuan, or a scholar like Fu Xian?”
After a short pause, he curled his lips as if thinking of something, “This year’s top scholar is quite handsome. If you like it, how about I’ll help you seize the person?”
With four eyes facing each other, Le Zhi clearly saw herself imprinted in Huo Du’s eyes and saw how shocked her expression was.
“You, do you know what you’re talking about?” She looked incredulous and even reached out her hand to touch his forehead.
If it weren’t for the burnt-out brain, a normal person would definitely not be able to say this nonsense!
But her hand was held by Huo Du when it only reached midair. He lowered his head and kissed her fingers lightly. Then, he moved closer to her ear and said in a low voice, “Else, what should I do? After all, this brother is willing but unable to…”
The fingers that had been kissed trembled slightly and the warm breath brushed the tip of the ear. Le Zhi felt a strange tingling sensation across her body. She bit her lip, put her hand on Huo Du’s shoulder, and pushed him away. Then she retracted into the quilt like a quail, revealing only a pair of beautiful eyes staring at him.
But Huo Du raised his eyebrows, obviously not intending to let her go. He imitated her and also got into the quilt, putting his hand on her soft waist through the bedclothes, feeling every tremor on her body. Then he leaned closer to her and said, “Think it through. This brother only gave you this chance, and if you don’t want it, you won’t have another chance later.”
“No!” Le Zhi suppressed the inexplicable heat in her body and refused angrily.
Huo Du looked at Le Zhi’s current appearance with great satisfaction. Her cheeks were flushed, her body was hot, and her eyes were blurred.
But the little girl doesn’t seem to know why she is like this.
He suddenly let out a low chuckle, and slowly moved the hand on her waist downward. While she was unprepared, he stroked his finger around in a circle.
Le Zhi was originally stunned, but the sudden feeling was so intense that her heartbeat almost stopped at the moment.
“Huo Du!” She gripped his restless hand tightly and pushed it away with force. In addition to embarrassment, there were many strange feelings that she did not know.
Huo Du did not want to do anything to her, so he moved his hand away just as she wanted. The hand moved away, but the mouth did not stop. Tonight, Huo Du was just teasing her, and he would not allow it. Anyway, he was just talking about it and nothing more.
“This brother has to find a way, right?” He kissed the tip of Le Zhi’s ear, bit it lightly, and then asked a question next to her ear.
Le Zhi’s face instantly burned beyond words. She pushed away from the person next to her, tears streaming from the end of her eyes, “You bully me, you bully me… How can you do this!”
This man is so bad… Big bad wolf!
Her hands pushed him away with all her might, trying to keep him away. Her heart was pounding like it was about to jump out.
What was wrong with her?
Looking at Le Zhi’s gradually reddened eyes, Huo Du realized that he had gone too far. But he did not regret it at all.
Since he was going crazy… Did she still want to stay out of it and be content?
How was that possible?
Of course, he had to pull her along. Then, that was fair. However, he did not mean to make her cry.
He thought she knew. Even though she had read so many books, she still did not seem to understand why she had such a reaction.
Huo Du reached out his hand and pulled Le Zhi into his arms, stroked her back gently, and said, “I won’t bully you, just go to sleep.”
But the person in his arms struggled, and said with a muffled voice, “Don’t hold me, I’ll sleep by myself.”
“Don’t you want to be hugged by this brother?” Huo Du chuckled, drawing a circle on Le Zhi’s back with his fingertips.
Le Zhi’s back froze for a moment. She really could not figure out where she had provoked Huo Du and made him so strange tonight!
Brother, what brother, is this person addicted to being a brother?
But at this time, she no longer had any strength, and she did not dare to provoke this lunatic anymore.
What’s more, nesting in his arms is… quite comfortable.
The uncomfortable feeling gradually dissipated, and drowsiness hit her. Le Zhi’s side face just pressed against Huo Du’s heart and fell into a deep sleep with the sound of his heartbeat.
“There are still twenty-four days left.” He stared at Le Zhi’s sleeping profile, smiled, and whispered.
Huo Xu locked himself in the room, in a drunken stupor.
Suddenly, the door of the room was pushed open, and the sunlight from outside instantly shone into the room, making his eyes feel uncomfortable for a moment.
The cold water poured down from his head, completely waking him up from his drunkenness.
“Who!” Huo Xu wiped the water from his face and raised his eyes angrily, “Are you tired of living?”
A phoenix robe stood against the backlight, and the Empress’s face was gloomy.
“Imperial Mother.” Huo Xu lost his imposing manner in an instant, but he could not help but feel wronged in his heart, “I am useless.”
Lin Wanning sighed softly, raised her hand, and signaled the maid beside her to help Huo Xu dry his body.
After he was cleaned up, Lin Wanning said, “Xu’er, have you ever thought about why you lost to Taizi this time?”
Hearing this, fierce hatred appeared in Huo Xu’s eyes, and he unconsciously clenched his fists, “Huo Du is despicable and set up a trap to frame me!”
Huo Xu froze in place.
Else? What else…
Seeing this, Lin Wanning snorted coldly and reminded in disappointment, “Le Zhi.”
Huo Xu suddenly reacted.
He was grounded in the mansion, and drunk all day long, unaware of the news outside. He also did not know what happened to Zhizhi. Would Huo Du hurt her? Although his life was saved, Huo Du would definitely not let her go easily.
He still did not know what kind of abuse his Zhizhi would be subjected to.
“Imperial Mother, do you know the situation of Zhizhi?” Huo Xu frowned, and his heart ached, “Is she alright?”
Lin Wanning could not bear it any longer. She raised her hand and slapped Huo Xu’s right face with force, and a crisp slap sounded immediately.
Huo Xu, whose cheeks were slightly swollen, was slapped again. He covered his right face and looked up at Lin Wanning’s angry face in shock.
He really could not understand why his mother wanted to slap him.

Today’s commotion has exceeded the standard, and Brother Du is accumulating strength…
