1374 If Nothing Had Happened, You Wouldn’t Have Reacted That Way

Long Qingzhi discerned the insinuation in her remark and said incredulously, “Are you saying Long Xuan doesn’t treat you well? But he seems like an agreeable person, and he’s always polite to everyone.”

“Hmph, that’s just his facade. In private, he’s absolutely obnoxious.” Lin Qingyuan exposed Long Xuan’s public persona without hesitation.

“What’s with all this pent-up anger?” Lu Liangwei cocked an eyebrow.

Lin Qingyuan went speechless.

Ignoring her, Lu Liangwei turned to watch Chu Yi fixing the wispy hairs that framed Zhu Yu’s face at the bottom of the steps. He was so gentle and considerate that he seemed completely different from the person he was before.

Apparently, some men became much more mature after getting married.

Chu Yi was a living example of that.

Just then, Chu Yi approached Lu Liangwei, bowed to her, and asked, “Your Highness, Zhu Yu told me that you just took her pulse. Could you tell me about her condition?”

His brow was furrowed while he spoke, which clearly indicated his concern.

Lu Liangwei reassured him, “Don’t worry. Zhu Yu’s in good health and in her early phase, so all she needs is to take some extra precautions. She needs to eat more nutritious food, get lots of rest, and avoid wearing herself out.”

Chu Yi listened to her instructions carefully and made a mental note of every word she said.

Lu Liangwei paused for a second before beckoning Zhu Yu over.

Zhu Yu went over to her at once.

Lu Liangwei moved close to her and whispered something in her ear.

Zhu Yu blushed. Biting her lip, she nodded and said in a low voice, “I’ll remember that, Miss.”

Lu Liangwei ruffled her hair. “Go back and get some rest.”

Just when Chu Yi was starting to wonder what she had said to Zhu Yu, she said to him, “Zhu Yu threw up just now, and she’s looking a little pale. You should take her back to rest.”

Chu Yi immediately grew anxious and nodded. “All right.” Holding Zhu Yu to support her, he led her back to their place.

On the way back, Chu Yi noticed that she was still blushing slightly. Reminded of her private conversation with the Empress, he could not help asking, “Why is your face so red? What did the Empress say to you?” He even reached out to feel her forehead.

Zhu Yu gave him a sidelong glance, thought for a moment, and murmured, “She said we need to avoid intercourse for the first three months.” She blushed again and lowered her head, not daring to look at him.

Chu Yi paused for a moment before replying, “I see.”

Zhu Yu glanced up at him, seemingly astonished by how calm he was.

Chu Yi was surprised to see her look at him. “What’s wrong?”

Zhu Yu shook her head quickly. “Nothing. Let’s go back.”

Chu Yi nodded, and after making sure that the coast was clear, scooped her up into his arms.

Zhu Yu panicked. “Brother Chu Yi, this is inappropriate…” There were people walking around everywhere in the palace, and it would be humiliating if someone ran into them.

“Don’t worry, there’s no one around,” Chu Yi reassured her. Knowing that she was easily embarrassed, he picked a path that no one would take.

In the imperial garden.

When Long Qingzhi and Chu Jiu headed to the lawn to check on the children, Lu Liangwei pulled Lin Qingyuan aside.

“What’s going on between you and Long Xuan?”

“What do you mean? Nothing’s changed between us.” Lin Qingyuan averted her gaze.

“Nothing’s changed? Then why do you keep spacing out today?” Lu Liangwei exposed her lie straight away. Then, she looked her up and down and nudged her, asking, “You already consummated your marriage, didn’t you?”

Lin Qingyuan was astounded. “How did you know?”

Lu Liangwei grinned. “When Royal Sister suggested that you and Chu Jiu could be pregnant, you turned really red. If nothing had happened between you and Long Xuan, you wouldn’t have reacted that way, given how shameless you are.”
