However, seeing Baili Jia Jue like this, Helian Wei Wei was even more uneasy.
Only that her uneasiness was hidden deep down in her heart.
Even Baili Jia Jue was unaware of it.
Both of them then returned to the palace.
The Battle of Capital became famous all of a sudden.
The scholars and military officials were kneeling in the great hall, with their wide sleeves spread on the bright marble floor and their heads on the ground. They were shouting, “Welcome back to the palace, Your Highness!”
This year was indeed the most glorious year of the War Dragon Empire.
The Retired Emperor’s illness was not a big deal. Instead, after being possessed by the ghostly aura and Wei Wei had exorcised the evil from him, the violence in him had reduced significantly, extending his life for a few more years.
However, surprisingly Nangong Lie was not in the palace.
After all, if he was there, the Capital would be safe from such a big mess.
Only after careful questioning that they knew, Nangong Lie was sent personally to the Hidden Spirit Temple by the Retired Emperor to invite the master over, because he was worried about Baili Jia Jue and Helian Wei Wei who had gone to the ancient tomb. Now it seemed no longer necessary.
The Capital became peaceful once again. The aura of resentment that had once shrouded the palace was also cleared.
The seal was enhanced. Although some demons and evil spirits would occasionally appear in the world, it was still a lot more peaceful than the previous chaotic state.
Upon seeing this, Helian Wei Wei thought of letting Baili Jia Jue bond with the babies again.
After their meals, she pulled his hand over and placed it on her stomach.
Baili Jia Jue left her to play with it. Sometimes he held her just like that with one of his hands holding a scroll and another one caressing her belly, as if he was stroking a fox.
Unfortunately, this fox could not roll on the ground.
Baili Jia Jue put down the scroll to free up one of his hands. He then hugged her in his arms, with a deep voice and a smile in his eyes, “Would you like me to teach you about chess?”
“I don’t want to play chess recently.” Helian Wei Wei grabbed his hand and played with it for a while. Then she suddenly thought of something and let out a grin, “Got it.”
Baili Jia Jue was hugging her as he raised his brows, “What?”
“Let’s do facial masks together, cool?” The smile at the corner of Helian Wei Wei’s mouth was getting even more obvious, “Your face will definitely look interesting with a facial mask.”
Baili Jia Jue refused to answer. He rejected straight away by taking a sip from the teacup, “It’s a woman’s thing again.”
“What’s a woman’s thing? In my world, a man will apply a facial mask too, alright.” Helian Wei Wei was intrigued by her own idea. She did not have a boyfriend in the modern world, so she had never imagined that one day she would live with someone for so long.
Maybe, she could not even imagine that any man would pamper her like this.
Sometimes, she would feel so lucky suddenly.
That she had met such a man.
Besides having a wicked tongue, he was brutal and cold-blooded yet elegant. He had betrayed everyone and was uncontrollable, but he had tied his Red String on her hand.
He would still ridicule her and take pleasure in attacking her with words.
He always knocked on her head and said she was stupid.
However, he would take good care of her while she was asleep.
He was always afraid that she would lie on her stomach when she turned over at night.
Obviously, Baili Jia Jue did not really want to listen to her talk about the place where she came from, it sounded like… she did not belong here.
Therefore, when Helian Wei Wei was leaving, Baili Jia Jue grabbed her subconsciously and grabbed her slender wrists in his palms. He could barely control his ghoulish aura.
Helian Wei Wei raised her eyebrows, “I’m going to make the facial mask. You wait for me here, I’ll be quick.”
“Just tell Eunuch Sun to get whatever you need. Do you think your moves are not clumsy enough?” Baili Jia Jue hugged her back again. His expression was cold and he did not mean to let her go, as if he was asking for something.
Helian Wei Wei liked to be hugged by him that way, so she stayed still.
Eunuch Sun saw how lovely they were and laughed until his eyes could barely be seen, “His Highness is right. Just tell me directly whatever you need. We still have the tributes sent by the Eastern region a few days ago. Should I bring all those to you, princess consort?”
“Eastern region?” Helian Wei Wei smiled, “Bring me some pearls then and leave the rest. Besides, I still need two empty bowls, a jar of honey, some fresh milk and tomatoes.”
Eunuch Sun replied to the princess consort’s order and went out with the palace servants.
Leaving both of them a moment of solitude.
His Highness had always disliked the servants around him. Back then, he did not like others to touch him, but now he did not want them to disturb his sweet time with the princess consort.
His Highness was still His Highness, he was shockingly sly and ruthless.
As long as the princess consort was around, he would restrain himself a little and not expose the deepest thing inside of him.
This was the greatest blessing for the War Dragon Empire.
In the past, many people thought that the useless lady of Helian’s family was not worthy of the mighty Third Prince.
Until now, the citizens were still discussing these two legends that existed in the War Dragon Empire.
One was the Third Prince, Baili Jia Jue.
The other was the Third Princess Consort, Helian Wei Wei.
Seeing that the Little Highness was about to be born, Eunuch Sun was over the clouds. Very quickly, he had everything that Helian Wei Wei wanted prepared.
Helian Weiwei had no regard for any taboo either. She rolled up her long sleeves, took the chopsticks over and started mixing. Whatever that came to mind, she added it into the bowl, just to get the right consistency.
“Milk, honey, pearl powder and tomatoes, all these are effective in whitening and hydrating.” As Helian Wei Wei said, she lifted the bowl and said to Baili Jia Jue, “Go and lie down on the bed so I could apply it faster.”
Baili Jia Jue laughed at her natural tone. He wickedly pulled her over and laid a kiss on her ear, the breath was hot, “I just need to lie down? As your husband, anything else I could do to cooperate with you?”
“No need.” As Helian Wei Wei said so, she remembered the scene last night where he just held her hand because they could not get intimate. The eyes were so deep in the dark and he would not stop kissing her neck. When he finally stopped, he gave her a rough bite on her collarbone. It was as if the heat still remained on her hands.
“If you look at your husband like this, you will make me feel like you’re saying something ironic.” Baili Jia Jue then hugged Helian Wei Wei from behind.
Helian Wei Wei chuckled and pushed him away, “Are you trying to divert my attention with this? I’m not so easily fooled. Hurry up and lie down there.”
Seeing her like this, Baili Jia Jue did as she asked.
Eunuch Sun was discerning. Silently, he signaled for the palace maid to put down the translucent protective screen immediately.
With his clothes on, Baili Jia Jue laid down and watched as she smeared on his face with her fingers. The mixture was chilling and very comfortable.
However, he could not imagine what he would look like in the end…
