His mood becomes heavy as he looks at the woman in front of him. He knows that he really needs to coax her into taking the tonic. “Nai Nai,” his voice is gentle and soft.
She looks up at him in surprise, her eyes wide, as though she cannot believe that he was the one who spoke just now.
Si Zheng Ting’s ears turn red as he grits his teeth, “You need to take care of your body in order to give me an heir.”
Zhuang Nai Nai who is originally happy by his gentleness finds her joy disappearing just like that.
It turns out that drinking this medicine is a task.
To tell the truth, she has grown accustomed to drinking medicine these past few years. With the life that she has to lead, taking medicine determines the matter of her life and death.
Just, her body is weak at the moment, causing her head to feel weak as well. She only wants to act a little spoilt when she sees him personally carrying the medicine over to her.
Zhuang Nai Nai keeps her expression in check before solemnly saying, “Oh.” Then, she picks up the bowl and drinks it in one gulp.
The bitter smell of the tonic fills her mouth. Her stomach that has been empty for days feels very bitter due to the tonic.
Just as she looks around for a glass of water to cleanse the taste off her tongue, she hears him say, “Open your mouth.”
She unconsciously opens her mouth and can feel him putting something sweet inside her mouth. Before Si Zheng Ting has fully retrieved his finger, she closes her mouth.
Her lips feel so soft.
Realizing what has just happened, she immediately opens her mouth once again and release his finger.
Si Zheng Ting’s heart trembles a little. It feels as though he has just touched a soft feather. That feeling of numbness travels from the tip of his finger to his heart, causing his ears to turn red.
Zhuang Nai Nai is frozen. She looks up and finds him looking sideways, looking at who knows what.
Her eyes light up.
If he really does not care about her, why would he want to have children with her? Why would he give her candy?
Does that means that even though he does not love her, he still cares for her?
With that in mind, the candy inside her mouth sweetens every fibre of her being.
Si Zheng Ting takes away the bowl. 10 minutes later, a maid walks in, carrying a bowl of chicken porridge. After eating the porridge, Zhuang Nai Nai feels a lot better.
She lies back down and covers herself with the blanket.
They have just gotten out of a cold war, so the atmosphere is a little awkward between the two of them.
She has slept for too long and does not have the desire to go back to sleep, so she opens her phone to browse the internet. When she sees the current date, she yells out in alarm.
She hears the rapid sound of footsteps coming towards her, “What’s wrong?”
When Si Zheng Ting hears her, he thought that she is sick again. He runs towards her and opens the blanket to check on her.
