AMTDCPOTEC Chapter 81
After Marrying the Disabled Crown Prince of the Enemy Country
Chapter 81 Full Moon
Le Zhi tied the transparent jade pendant around her waist. Although she did not know the use of Uncle Yin’s jade pendant, she still understood the principle of making the best use of everything, and it might have a deterrent effect.
Sure enough, Chu Yan was obviously stunned when he saw the jade pendant on her waist from a distance, but it was only for a moment.
“Tsk.” Chu Yan said with a smile, “Taizifei, why such a big battle ah?”
“Chu Yan, you are so bold to secretly lock down the city and besiege the Taizi!”
Seeing Le Zhi’s pale face, Chu Yan also lowered his voice and said, “So what? Huo Changyun slaughtered my tribe, and what I did today was just tit-for-tat.”
“What nonsense!” Le Zhi’s eyes were cold and raised her voice, “Since it’s what Huo Changyun did, then go to Huo Changyun to get revenge. Don’t say empty words like the son has to pay for the father’s debts. This is just an excuse for your incompetence!”
Hearing this, Chu Yan was speechless. After a pause, he sneered, “You said so much, isn’t it just to save Huo Du? If I just want to kill him, what can you do?”
Huo Du, who was walking down from the city wall, heard this. His footsteps on the steps froze suddenly, and he frowned. What act is this? Isn’t Chu Yan’s nonsense a little too much?
“If anything happens to His Highness Taizi, all of you will have to bury him with him.”
The foxy eyes were red, and she looked both devil and demonic on her pale face. She was obviously a stunning beauty, but she had a murderous spirit. When the old tribesmen saw this, their hearts were all frightened, and they all took half a step back for no reason.
Only Le Zhi herself knew how baseless this was. But she really had no choice. Apart from deterrence and intimidation, she could not think of any other way.
Huo Du was still in the city. If she insisted on attacking, and in case it really annoyed Chu Yan… She did not dare to think about it.
Seeing Le Zhi was really annoyed, Chu Yan stopped deliberately provoking her. He smiled, and just as he was about to explain, he saw a team of roaring hooves coming towards them.
The soldiers of country Jiang have arrived.
Le Zhi’s heart sank. Just as she was calculating the chances of winning the battle with the soldiers of countryJiang and Chu Yan, she saw Chu Yan leading his tribe toward the soldiers of country Jiang.
She pulled the reins and looked toward the place where the two sides were fighting.
What’s going on?
Did not country Jiang unite with Chu Yan to send troops to encircle Huo Du?
Why did the fight begin now?
Not only Le Zhi, but even the soldiers of country Ning was dumbfounded and froze in place.
“What are you waiting for? Come and help!”
When Chu Yan’s shout came, Le Zhi frowned and somewhat hesitated.
…What if, what if it was Chu Yan and the soldiers of country Jiang’s scheme? She could not rashly give an order and harmed a troop of innocent soldiers of country Ning.
At this time, the sky was covered with dark clouds, and a sudden gust of wind stirred up the yellow sand all over the sky.
“Cough, cough…” Le Zhi raised one hand to cover her mouth and nose, but her body was already unstable. After one hand loosened the reins, her eyes suddenly became dizzy, and her upper body leaned sideways and fell downward.
Before the expected pain came, Le Zhi only felt a force holding her and letting her sit back firmly on the horse. At the same time, her body fell into a familiar embrace, and she almost burst into tears instantly.
She lowered her eyes and heard Huo Du’s commanding voice in the middle of the haze.
“All soldiers, surround the soldiers from country Jiang from west to east and leave no one behind.”
“Yes!” the soldiers of country Ning shouted in unison.
Le Zhi wondered, why did the soldiers of country Ning obey Huo Du’s orders so much? But her eyes were lowered and did not see the black gold token held high in Huo Du’s hand.
Her weak body was wrapped in a thick cotton cloak, and the person who hugged closely behind her stroked her side face and let her lean against him.
The horse turned its front hooves and galloped towards the city. The cold wind passed over the tip of the ears, and there was only silence surrounding them, except for the sound of the wind and the clear heartbeat of the two of them.
No one broke the silence.
Le Zhi was too tired to speak. Her body was wrapped in a cotton cloak, but her cheeks and ears were exposed, and she was in pain blown by the wind.
In order to hasten her journey in the past few days, she knew that her cheeks, earlobes, and neck had been scratched by fine sand. But because she was worried, she could not care about it. Now that she had calmed down, the numb pain was emerging.
She frowned and hissed softly.
Suddenly, there was a hot and wet feeling on the neck. Le Zhi opened her eyes wide and realized that he was licking her scratches with the tip of his tongue, and her mind was stunned for a moment. When she regained her senses, his lips and tongue had left her neck and turned to suck her earlobe.
The stinging pain in her ears gradually turned into a subtle tickle, and Le Zhi stiffened as if she had been frozen. Her slender fingers tightly grasped his arms around her waist, feeling a little overwhelmed.
He, what is he doing!
Although there were not many people in the city, they were on the horseback in broad daylight, was not this person ashamed at all?
Le Zhi blushed, her eyelashes trembled, and she pushed him with all her remaining strength, “Don’t, don’t…”
He responded in a low voice, then turned to suck her other earlobe and kissed her tenderly.
Le Zhi felt that the road from the city gate to the Governor Mansion was too long. By the time they arrived at the gate of the mansion, her eyelids were almost closed due to exhaustion.
She opened her eyes and was about to dismount when the person behind her rolled over to the ground. Then he held her by the waist and helped her to get down from the horse.
She landed firmly in his arms.
Le Zhi’s expression was a little stunned, but her hand subconsciously wrapped around Huo Du’s neck and clenched his shirt tightly. Their cheeks were so close together that their breaths intertwined. She smelled the faint scent of mint, put her side face on his heart with ease, and then closed her eyes.
When Huo Du carried Le Zhi into the bedroom and put her on the bed, the person in his arms was already sleeping peacefully and breathing shallowly. Huo Du sat on the side of the bed and stared at her sleeping face for a long time.
After a long time, he got up and brought the medicine box.
However, after not seeing her for more than ten days, his little fox had lost a lot of weight, and her pale face was full of tiredness. He took the ointment and rolled up her sleeves.
The sound of the candy jar falling to the ground made the person on the bed frown in her sleep.
Huo Du picked up the candy jar and opened the lid, only to find the last remaining mint candy was left inside. He put the sugar in his mouth and looked at Le Zhi quietly. But the sleeping person unconsciously reached out her hand to touch her sleeve. She could not find anything after touching it for a long time, and her eyebrows tightened deeper.
It was not until Huo Du stuffed the candy jar into her hand that she stretched her brows and continued to sleep with ease.
Huo Du looked at her holding the candy jar tightly but felt that his heart was being held tightly and could no longer be pulled away. From then on, his heart no longer belonged to him.
He leaned down slowly and dropped a gentle kiss on her lips.
Le Zhi smelled a trace of sweetness in her dream. It was her favorite flavor.
In the past few days, she had eaten almost nothing, only relying on the cool sweetness to support her. However, the more candy she ate, the less it became. Since Shengyang City had not arrived yet, she could only save it and when there was only one left, she dared not eat it.
She was afraid. Afraid that the person who made the candy was gone. In that case, how could she find this flavor?
Thus, she dared not eat it.
Unexpectedly, she could taste such a flavor in her sleep. Le Zhi was very happy. She was pleasantly surprised to find that the mint in her dream was not so cold but seemed to be wrapped in warmth.
She clung to the source of the sweetness tightly, her cherry lips sucked hard, and the tip of her tongue deftly hooked the sweetness into her lips and teeth.
It was already late at night when he came out of the bedroom.
Huo Du stepped into the main hall with a calm face. He saw Chu Yan leisurely sitting on the soft chair, and asked, “It’s all wiped out?”
“Naturally.” Chu Yan scoffed, “Just a group of trash from country Jiang, they still want to rule the world. Must be dreaming!”
Huo Du hummed and said, “I see, you can leave first.”
“Hey, I said you kid, what a stinky temper!” Chu Yan looked at him discontentedly, and then asked after a pause, “How is she? Is she all right?”
They were destined to be abnormal uncles and nephews.
Although Huo Changyun’s actions had nothing to do with Huo Du, for Chu Yan, it was a knot in his heart after all. And Huo Du did not want to see him either.
Thinking of this, Chu Yan smiled helplessly, got up, and walked out. When he reached the door, as if thinking of something, he turned around and said to Huo Du, “Your wife is also too temperamental.”
“It’s none of your business.”
Huo Du responded quickly this time, he frowned, and his eyes were cold.
Chu Yan shrugged needlessly and turned to leave.
Same bad temper.
It’s a perfect match.
Le Zhi slept until the next night. She struggled to open her sleepy eyes and stared at the warm candlelight in the room, stunned for a moment. Then she lowered her eyes and found that the clothes on her body had been changed, and the feeling of sticky sweat on her body had disappeared.
Rubbing her eyes, she got up from the bed and walked out of the room.
The melodious sound of the flute drifted to her ears. She curved her lips and followed the flute to the back garden.
A familiar figure stood under the moon. Le Zhi remembered that he was also playing the flute on a snowy night that day when she came to look for him. But at that time, she was depressed, and he was sitting in a white jade wheelchair.
Now that she thought about it, it felt like a lifetime away.
Finally, the song was over. Le Zhi lifted the skirt and walked towards him slowly but saw that he also turned around and looked at her with a gentle smile.
“Your leg… is completely healed?”
Originally, there were many questions in her heart that she wanted to ask him, but when she stood in front of him, only one question came up.
Huo Du hummed and asked, “Did you sleep well?”
Le Zhi was a little embarrassed, lowered her eyes, and murmured softly, “I slept too long…”
Huo Du looked at her with a smile and his eyes were burning.
Because tonight, you can’t sleep anymore.
Le Zhi raised her eyes and saw his scorching eyes, her heart skipped a beat. With a blushing face, she started the subject bluntly, “I travel day and night to save Your Highness! Why don’t Your Highness thank me properly?”
Hearing this, Huo Du nodded. Then he put his hands together, bowed to Le Zhi, and said seriously, “Thank you for saving me, Your Highness Princess.”
Le Zhi was only kidding with him. Seeing him thank her so seriously, she was stunned for a moment, and hurriedly helped him, “No, no, I’m kidding…”
Huo Du took advantage of the situation to hold her hand and looked up at the sky with her.
The round bright moon hung high, shining brightly.
Le Zhi remembered what she said before leaving that day and was overjoyed in her heart, as if saying to herself, “I didn’t break my promise.”
She said she would come back when the moon was full, and now they were really enjoying the moon together again.
“Hmm?” Le Zhi curved her lips and looked at him.
“Is the moon round?”
Le Zhi frowned slightly. What kind of silly question is this? Such a big round moon!
While she was pondering, her body suddenly rose into the air and was hugged horizontally. She let out a soft cry, hugged Huo Du’s neck tightly, and looked at him puzzledly.
Huo Du pressed his lips to her ear and whispered, “All right.”
This is what you said yourself.
When the moon was round, people naturally must be round too.
Le Zhi was completely stunned, and when her back touched the soft bed, she realized what Huo Du meant.
This round is not that type of round.
“But, but aren’t you…”
Her words were out of tune. She looked down at Huo Du and he was using his cold white fingers to open the tie around her waist. The scorching breath brushed the tip of her ear, and his lips pressed against her earlobe, teasing, “You want to say that I’m not able to? Or… not capable?”
He bit the last two words extremely hard, but his tone was full of smiles.
Le Zhi’s face reddened after hearing what was said, and her eyes were full of shock.
She did not know when the clothes on her body loosened and fell to her shoulders. Her hand was pulled by him, and she did not know where he was going. Finally, she pulled back her fingertips and her heart skipped a beat.
Then Huo Du released her slightly, stared into her eyes with a pair of peach blossom eyes, and said, “I’ll give you a chance. It’s not too late to refuse now.”
But she only uttered a word, and he held her face and kissed her hard.
The cotton mattress was wrinkled by her, and the whole person was tightly surrounded by the scent of mint, which was inevitable. Her body stiffened, unable to think.
When their breathing became more and more chaotic, Le Zhi felt his fingers pass through hers and interlaced with hers.
“Relax.” Huo Du comforted her softly in his ear. Before falling into confusion, she heard him whisper two words.
The candlelight was dim, but it could not hide the emotion in his eyes. Le Zhi fell into his black eyes and indulged together with him.
