Nan Gongyin looked at the front empress’ dress bleeding in a panic, and he said anxiously, “This… what’s going on? Nightshade, hurry up and take my mother out.”
The little fox suddenly screamed. It kept shaking its paws at Nan Gongyin, saying that he couldn’t take the former empress out of the coffin. The baby in the coffin was about to be born. If the mother was carried out now, it would be bad for mother and child.
Nightshade didn’t know anything about women giving birth. He did what Nan Gongyin asked him to.
Seeing that the two men were completely panicking, the little fox shook its paws at Nu Er, who was calmly watching the show.
Nan Gongyin almost killed Nu Er’s Miss, so he Er didn’t want to care about Nan Gongyin’s mother.
Nu Er said plainly, “She is giving birth, you better not touch her.”
Nightshade’s hands that extended into the coffin suddenly stopped. Seeing the painful expression on the empress’ face, his fingers shook as he retrieved his hands out of the coffin.
“Ah… ah… ah…”
The woman’s cry in the coffin became more and more miserable. It was like a fire that burned the hearts and lungs of Nan Gongyin and Nightshade.
Nan Gongyin turned around anxiously. This was the first time Xiao Xi saw an anxious expression on Nan Gongyin’s face.
Xiao Xi’s heart also twitched with the cry of the woman in the coffin.
It is so painful to have children? Then I should not have children in the future…
About half an hour passed.
The miserable and weak cry of former empress stopped, and a baby cry came from the coffin.
“She gave birth.”
Nan Gongyin happily hammered the palm of his hand, turned and walked to the coffin. He saw a white and fat little baby inside. When he saw the little baby with a pair of golden pupils, the smile on his face disappeared, and his back became cold. The fingers on the edge of the coffin trembled slightly.
At this time, the former empress gave birth to a child, exhausted all her energy, and fainted.
The little baby’s white and tender legs swayed in the air. All of a sudden, the baby sat in the coffin and sucked his own little finger.
The little fox saw the little baby’s golden eyes, and she was immediately attracted by those eyes. What a beautiful eye! They are like pure amber.
Nu Er suddenly laughed, “Nan Gongyin, congratulations, you have a younger brother with demonic pupils.”
Nan Gongyin’s body shook a little, but fortunately, Nightshade helped him in time.
Nightshade glared at Nu Er and said to Nan Gongyin, “Your Highness, if you take the little baby out like this, I’m afraid it will draw bad luck to you and your empress, and it will also cause the little baby to be killed. Please forgive me for being blunt, it is better to let me send the little baby out of the palace quietly!”
Nu Er smiled deeper and sneered, “You’re really a loyal slave. With this demonic eyes, he will be burned to death even if you send him out. Why don’t you just kill him here? It’s rather quick. The baby won’t suffer the pain of being burned too.”
The little baby looked at Nightshade and Nu Er who were talking innocently. The golden sight finally fell on Nan Gongyin’s face. Blood was really thicker than water. The little baby stretched out his plump arms to Nan Gongyin and wanted him to hold him.
Nan Gongyin stared at the golden pupils in a daze. At first, if the nation advisor didn’t calculate that this child would bring disaster to the Southern Lin Dynasty, his mother wouldn’t be executed by the emperor for protecting the child.
Nan Gongyin really hoped that this child could have normal eyes. At least having the odd pupils like him and his mother that couldn’t be noticed from the surface, so no one dared to say anything.
The little baby didn’t get Nan Gongyin’s hug, and his golden eyes were shining with tears. He slowly turned to the little fox… in Nu Er’s arms.
The little baby suddenly laughed at the little fox, and the tears stained his curly eyelashes.
The little fox’s eyes lit up, and it smiled too. This beautiful baby with amber pupils liked it.
The little fox shook its seven fluffy tails. It was somewhat complacent. The moment this little baby smiled at it, the little fox suddenly felt worth it. It was worth letting Nan Gongyin releasing her blood to save his mother.
The beautiful baby with amber pupils knew that its blood… saved him.
Nan Gongyin took off his outer robe, and he still wrapped and carried the little baby out of the coffin. He then said, “Night, take mother back to the palace.”
When Nightshade saw that Nan Gongyin also wanted to bring the baby, he said worriedly, “But the little baby…”
“He is my younger brother. If I can’t even protect my younger brother, what’s the use of being the crown prince of East Palace?”
“Nan Gongyin, a man has to fulfill his promise. Give me the antidote.”
Nu Er reached out his palm.
The coffin baby was held in Nan Gongyin’s arms, and he was a little closer to the little fox. He chuckled and extended his hand at the little fox’s big fluffy tails.
The little one liked this beautiful baby with amber pupils very much. When he grinned, his mouth was toothless. He was really cute. When the fluffy tails approached his little hand, the tails slipped away from his palm like a little cat was fishing.
The coffin baby became more and more vigorous as he played. He didn’t look like a newborn baby at all, but he was like a baby of six or seven months old. He was kicking his legs in Nan Gongyin’s arms as it was excitedly trying to rush toward the little fox…
“Hehe…” The little fox let out a weird laugh.
“My mother’s blood is the cure. Wait until mother is awake!”
Nan Gongyin saw the little fox and the little baby in his arms got along very well, and his eyes flashed a hint of tenderness. Younger brother, you also think that the future emperor’s wife is very good, don’t you?
Nu Er smirked in anger hearing Nan Gongyin’s words, “Nan Gongyin, you are really the most despicable and shameless person I have ever seen; no one else can be comparable to you.”
Nan Gongyin glanced at Nu Er who was smirking in anger, and he didn’t care about Nu Er. He couldn’t care much about this monster.
Two more hours passed.
They returned to Nan Gongyin’s room. Nightshade put the fainted former empress on the bed, then he heard Nan Gongyin’s voice.
“Night, you go and call Qiu Lan in and let her serve mother.”
Qiu Lan was Nan Gongyin’s confidant. Among all the maids in this East Palace, no one was more suitable for taking care of the former empress than the careful Qiu Lan.
“Yes, I will go right away.”
Nu Er walked out of Nan Gongyin’s room holding the little fox. His peach blossom eyes were dark. When the former empress woke up, he would personally take her blood and feed it to Miss.
Seeing that the little fox was taken away, the little baby cried out loud. It was so loud that almost everyone in the East Palace could hear that.
Nan Gongyin’s eyebrows skipped. He gently covered the little baby’s mouth. How could it stop the little baby from crying? The cry became louder and louder.
Nan Gongyin had no choice but to chase Xiao Xi into her room while holding the little baby.
“Miss wants to rest, Nan Gongyin, you’d better go back to your room.”
Seeing the little fox, the little baby stopped crying. He stretched out his chubby hand and tried to climb in the direction of the little fox.
Nan Gongyin had a headache, “My brother likes Xi’er, so let him stay with Xi’er for a while!”
Nu Er looked around Nan Gongyin and the little baby in his arms, then he smiled evilly and said, “Why? You two brothers want to serve Miss together?”
Nan Gongyin coldly said, “Xi’er is my crown princess.”
“Feng Lingran said that Miss is his regent princess, maybe when your brother can speak, he will say that Miss is his princess as well.”
“My younger brother has just born. Don’t impose your dirty thoughts on him.”
*Squeak* Stop making noise! Do you still want to let me sleep?
The little fox looked at Nan Gongyin and Nu Er with dissatisfaction.
Nu Er’s fingernails grew longer, and his peach blossom eyes gradually turned red.
The little baby was curious about everything. Seeing Nu Er’s fingernails, his little hands tried to touch them.
Nan Gongyin’s eyebrows became tight, then he hugged the baby, turned around and left.
The next day.
“What? Nan Gongyin brought a child back at night? Are you sure that the child’s eyes are golden pupils?”
Concubine Ji looked at the servant girl who was kneeling on the ground. Her fingers were trembling.
“My brother is the guard of East Palace. He saw with his own eyes that the child brought back by the crown prince has golden pupils. Moreover, the crown prince did not leave the palace last night. There must be some stories for the origin of the child.”
“Well, you let your brother continue to stare at Nan Gongyin’s every move. I will reward you in the future.”
“Thank you Concubine Ji, may you live for a thousand years.”
After the maid left, Concubine Ji gave an evil smile.
“Sister, what is going on? Is the child… belong to the crown prince?”
Ji Yunxue’s beautiful face looked anxious. The child is a male baby. If he is the biological child of the crown prince, then wouldn’t my future child…
“Now you are anxious?” Concubine Ji looked at Ji Yunxue with a smile, then she continued, “It’s right to be anxious. Now that it’s still unclear whether the child is Nan Gongyin’s biological son. By the way, Xue’er, have you done what I asked you to do?”
“Sister, I haven’t seen Xiao Xi in East Palace these days, so I haven’t found a chance.” Ji Yunxue thought for a while and said, “As for Nu Er, she is now accompanying a little fox every day. She doesn’t seem to care about Xiao Xi.”
“That’s just Nan Gongyin’s smokescreen. Don’t be fooled. Nan Gongyin must have hid Xiao Xi to prevent anything happening to her before the canonization.” Concubine Ji snorted and continued, “Unfortunately, Nan Gongyin is smart, I’m smarter than him.”
“Sister, what good plan do you have?” Ji Yunxue asked anxiously.
“I have sent someone to inform the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty that Nan Gongyin wants to canonize Xiao Xi as a crown princess.”
Ji Yunxue was a little confused, “Sister, is there any entanglement between Xiao Xi and the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty?”
Concubine Ji smiled unfathomably, “I just got to know about the matter between that little bitch, Xiao Xi and Feng Lingran. Now it depends on whether Feng Lingran will participate in the canonization ceremony or not.” She emphasized the word “participate”.
After a pause, she said, “The little bitch can hide for now, but she can’t hide forever.”
Ji Yunxue sighed, “I hope that Xiao Xi will be taken away by the Eastern Jin Dynasty’s regent.” Then I don’t have to do anything that harms the others.
Concubine Ji glanced at Ji Yunxue, “Regardless of whether the little bitch will be taken away by Feng Lingran, you have to put the sterilization medicine in the little bitch’s tea and cut off all her retreat. Xue’er, you remember sister’s words, Nan Gongyin is not as simple as you see. He will not easily let go of the things and people he cares about. What’s more, he insists so much on that little bitch.”
