Athena was actually pregnant. This was indeed a very unexpected good news.
Chen Rui once thought that he had a soul-reborn crossover attribute, which made it impossible for women in this world to conceive. The birth of Duoduo was actually an exception, because the little phoenix was equivalent to using the secret technique to borrow Catherine as the main body. It was not a real fertilization and pregnancy. Of course, this did not affect Duoduo’s position in the hearts of Chen Rui and the girls.
Today, Athena’s successful pregnancy had broken a certain scruple that Chen Rui had been worried about. In a sense, the continuation of bloodline also meant that he, an ‘outsider’, had truly been recognized by the world.
Dark Moon Royal Palace.
“Athena, take a rest first, I’ll get these official documents done right away.”
“You don’t need to practice swords anymore. I heard Catherine say that it’s best not to exercise vigorously, but you can’t lie still all day. I’ll accompany you to walk around the palace later.”
“Tonight we eat mushroom meatball soup, as well as green vegetables, purple eggplant, white stone fish…”
“I know you don’t like to eat purple eggplant, but you are a mother-to-be now. This is a mother-to-be nutrition recipe specially provided by Catherine. For the sake of yourself and our baby, you must eat it!”
Athena looked at this talkative man with a blissful smile on her face.
Some time ago, she had been feeling unwell, but she didn’t take it to heart. Later, when Catherine sent Duoduo to the Dark Moon Estate, she noticed that she was retching. Her Majesty Empress was always attentive, and she had experienced it before, so she immediately realized something. After repeated inspections, she finally confirmed that Athena was pregnant.
Athena was both surprised and delighted. Originally, because she had to take care of the Dark Moon Estate, she was inevitably a little sad as she couldn’t accompany Chen Rui to travel and take adventures like Zola and Isabella. Now that she was going to be a mother, the good news swept away these emotions swept away.
Considering the situation that human ‘Chen Rui’ deliberately showed at the Dark Moon Estate before, this news was not spread. Only the closest friends and relatives knew it. Certainly, Shea and the girls were so happy for Athena and envious at the same time. No wonder Kia would do that ‘interview recording’ behavior.
Athena’s father, George, the first general of the Fallen Angel Empire, was even more ecstatic. Mom Red Dragon Gloria, who had the best relationship with Athena, came to the Dark Moon from the Warlock Fortress to take care of his daughter.
Looking at her busy son-in-law, Mom Red Dragon became more and more satisfied – This man is not only excellent in strength, but he also has a deep relationship with Athena, and is attentive and caring to his wife. If there is any ‘shortcoming’, it is that he has more than 1 woman, but this situation is common in the Demon Realm. Chen Rui is considered to have very few women. My husband, George, has nearly twice as many wives and concubines, and George is very restrained among the noble families of the same level. For ordinary noble families, dozens or hundreds of wives and concubines are basically common.
However, the other wives of this son-in-law are not simple. The empresses of the 2 empires alone are enough to shock the entire Demon Realm. ‘Royal Highness Prince Consort’ is unique. Athena’s ability to share a man with Her Majesty Empress is also a proud honor for the Wales Family.
“Actually, I’m not so delicate. Just do things as usual. You don’t need to make a fuss about it.” Athena laughed, “Catherine said that it will take at least 2 years to give birth, and now I can’t see any abnormality on the outside. Furthermore, I can feel that the child’s condition has basically stabilized. I just need to pay more attention in the last few months.”
Whether it was a creature from the human world or the Demon Realm, it was much more difficult for a powerhouse to have an offspring than for ordinary people, especially when both husband and wife had powerful strength. Athena was also a high-level powerhouse, not to mention the strength of Chen Rui, so it was quite difficult.
As for the pregnancy period, there were long and short ones. The short term was similar to the ‘10-month pregnancy’ that Chen Rui knew in his previous life. Catherine gave birth to the little phoenix with this time period, but Ms. Duoduo was a special case – Duoduo belonged to the immortal soul bloodline reincarnation. She was born smoothly after using Catherine’s blood and power to brew a mature embryo. This birth did not blindly absorb the energy of the maternal body. On the contrary, Catherine had also obtained considerable benefits. The secret technique of exhausting power to fight the enemy of higher realm was derived from the special power of Duoduo, as well as [Fire Phoenix’s Yearning] and so on.
A race with a long pregnancy period could last for several years or even longer. In theory, the stronger the strength and the stronger the potential of the child, the longer the pregnancy period would be. The most representative was dragons. Pregnancy often lasted for more than 10 years or decades, but the baby was very powerful at birth.
Pregnant maternal body generally had the most accurate sense of pregnancy. Firstly, Athena had no experience of being a mother. Secondly, her strength had grown too fast in recent years that she was still unable to use it freely, so there was no way to sense the length of pregnancy. However, according to Catherine’s preliminary judgment, the due date should be much longer than when she was pregnant with Duoduo: At least 2 years.
“You still have to be careful. Alright, I won’t disturb you young couple…” Gloria added worriedly, “Remember, although the condition of the fetus has stabilized, don’t make too many intimacy movements so as not to affect the child.”
The last sentence made the 2 of them blush immediately. Even Chen Rui, who had a thick face, was no exception. Mom Red Dragon had always been bold and not long-winded. She walked out of the room with a big laugh.
Chen Rui and Athena stared at each other for a while, and they finally smiled at each other. Chen Rui came to her side, squatted down, and put his ear to her belly and listened.
“It’s still early! Even my stomach is flat now. I don’t see any change in appearance.” Athena said while stroking his hair lightly with her fingers.
Chen Rui closed his eyes, concentrated his mind, and gradually sensed a faint fluctuation of life. In an instant, a feeling of bloodline connection surged in his heart, which was not only a feeling but also a touching emotion.
Although Athena couldn’t see that kind of expression, she could feel the emotion in her heart. She stroked his back, feeling like she, the child and Chen Rui were integrated into one whole. Her heart was instantly filled with happiness.
“Do you like girls or boys?”
“I like both. Boys should be as smart as I’m, and girls should be as beautiful as you.”
“In Paglio’s words, you’re cunning, and as for me… I’m not as beautiful as Catherine, Zola and the others.”
“No, you are the most beautiful.” Chen Rui took her hand and put it on his face, “It has always been so. From the first time I saw you, that heroic, generous and beautiful female swordsman is imprinted in my heart – You are unique.”
“Sweet-talking guy.” Athena felt sweet in her heart, “No wonder even Alice falls for you.”
“I’m wronged!” Chen Rui jumped up quickly to clarify his innocence, “I really have nothing to do with Alice! As soon as I came back, I was inexplicably held by her as she cried out lot. In the end, Duoduo also cried, saying that you have a baby and don’t want her anymore. I had to coax her for a long time.”
“Duoduo is so silly. She will always be the baby of us, and she will be the eldest sister in the future. As for Alice…” Athena suddenly sighed, “Tell me honestly, how long are you going to make the little princess wait? Didn’t you guys have an agreement?”
“That agreement… she was still young at the time.” Chen Rui shrugged, “it was just a tactic of delaying. I think that she will be able to find someone she really likes in the future.”
“So now, who do you think she really likes?” Athena shook her head, “When Alice knew that I was pregnant, she was very happy but also very sad. She knew you before me. Since then, she has always secretly liked you. Now I have your children, yet she is still alone. How many years we have loved each other is equivalent to the number of years she has waited for you.”
Athena’s last sentence touched Chen Rui’s heart. He was not wood, and he knew what Alice was thinking. Although her appearance and personality seem to be the same as before, the loli of that year had grown up after all.
“Shea would kill me if she knew.”
“You think Princess Royal… Ugh, Royal Majesty is a fool?” Athena looked into Chen Rui’s eyes, “Do you know how many nobles have asked Princess Royal, er… Her Majesty Shea for marriage over the past few years? ? However, these requests were all rejected by Her Majesty. As an older sister, Her Majesty knows very well who Alice is waiting for. If… it is Alice, not only me and Shea, even Kia, Zola and the others can accept it. “
Chen Rui smiled wryly, “Let’s go with the flow then.”
“Hmph! Still pretending to be innocent! You should feel lucky, if it wasn’t for our child, I wouldn’t be so generous…” Athena glared at him, “By the way, my secretary hasn’t come to report yet. Is it because she can’t get out of bed because of the ‘hard work’ late at night?”
Chen Rui sneered a few times. It really is like this. The fact that Athena was pregnant made the little succubus envious, so she had been entangling him a lot these days. She actually strictly followed the posture and steps he remembered the last time he had sex with Athena. This cycle kept repeating, and she eventually exhausted herself, which was ludicrous.
“When will you bring back your fiancee princess in the human world?”
“Why do I smell a sour smell?” Chen Rui laughed, “Aren’t you more generous when you have a child?”
Athena bit her lip and was about to twist his waist, but he hugged her in his arms, telling what happened in the human world, especially the transaction between the Blue Glory Empire and Landbis.
Hearing Chen Rui rejecting marriage in public at the engagement ceremony, Athena hugged him happily even though she knew it was just a deal. Meanwhile, the thrilling battle at the Tree of Nature and the Golden Bright Underground Palace made her nervous.
“I came back this time to go to Mountain Xilang to hand over the earth origin fragment to Moore, then I gave to go back to the human world to do some things, including going to the Holy Light Mountain to comprehend creation origin and bringing back Raizen’s daughter. Finally, i will also bring Zola and Yini back as well as the Samuel Family that I told you about.”
With that said, Chen Rui kissed Athena’s face, “I can now travel between the 2 worlds freely. Next time, when you are free of work, I will take you to the human world for a vacation.”
“En.” Athena knew about the 3 empires’ alliance and Tiffany, and she nodded, “This time to Mountain Xilang…”
“Let’s go together? Just like back then?”
Athena felt warm as she reminisced the scene where she and the ‘human mining officer’ went to Mountain Xilang hand in hand. However, she shook her head, “I’m too busy, take Alice with you.”
“Why are you promoting Alice again?”
“If I don’t promote Alice, should I wait until you marry the Bloody Empire’s empress? The Sir Prince Consort of the 3 empires?”
“Why are you jealous again? Where is the wise and generous madam general, madam lord and madam wife?” Chen Rui exclaimed exaggeratedly, “No! I want to check to see if someone is impersonating my Athena!”
With that said, this guy actually started to take off Athena’s clothes for ‘examination’. The female madam general was very sensitive during pregnancy. After her symbolic resistance was invalid and her private part was being assaulted frequently, she finally gave up the resistance. Amidst the moaning and breathing sounds, her gaze became intoxicated gradually. The lust she had accumulated for a long time finally poured out like a flood. She was completely immersed in the sex with him.
TL: Still feel a little weird for Alice to be his woman…
