If Fang Tianzhuo is regarded as a crazy person. He Zheng can say anything, but the problem is that he does not dare to fool Fang Tianzhuo.
“Okay, much better.”
Fang Tianzhuo enjoys hugging and even smelling him. The tip of the man’s nose lingers on his neck as he sniffs, and he detects a slight scent emanating from his skin. This scent is like a lure that can easily entice men to take the bait.
He Zheng shrank his neck weakly and said, “Your Majesty, shall we play chess?”
Fang Tianzhuo smiled: “I just want to have a little prince with Zhenger as soon as possible.”
He Zheng frowned, he was very flustered now.
If Fang Tianzhuo really takes this seriously, then he will really give birth soon!
He took a breath and said suddenly, “I want to show you something.”
“This is an entertainment equipment called mahjong, I want to construct it, and we can play together in the future,” He Zheng murmured softly as he rushed to the table and dug out the designs he had made in the previous few days.
Fang Tianzhuo raised his eyebrows, looking at the different small figures in the square above, He Zheng took out another kind of blueprint and showed it to Fang Tianzhuo with both hands: “This is called poker, two people can also play, we can play this to pass the time later.”
He was a little nervous.
He was drawing these things very carefully these days. After all, Fang Tianzhuo did the same thing every time he returned to him, and he was convinced he would be pregnant soon if he couldn’t stop him. Fang Tianzhuo would spend less time doing that kind of thing with him if he could find some entertainment, which would lessen the chances of pregnancy to some extent.
He was originally too lazy to complete these things since he wanted to get out of the palace. There is always a place in heaven and on earth for him, but he must now stay at Fang Tianzhuo’s side, so he should consider how to live more comfortably in the palace.
Fang Tianzhuo was still staring at the blueprints, as if he had no idea how to play.
He Zheng poked him again, and Fang Tianzhuo saw him pointing at the small wooden square in the disc in front of the window: “I have the wood ready for Shunyi, Your Majesty… Would you like to play it with me?”
His eyes were full of anticipation, but Fang Tianzhuo was silent.
No, he has to coax him to work with me. What’s so good with going to bed all day long?
“your Majesty, in fact, I have always wanted to do some craftsmanship with you, or something. I don’t want to have a simple relationship with your Majesty. ”
Fang Tianzhuo pursed his lips and nodded slowly.
He Zheng was excited and ran over immediately.
He doesn’t know how it was spread from outside, anyway, now He Zheng basically does what he wants. The pieces of wood he wanted didn’t go through Nanmen Liang, and someone sent them directly, and they were all good.
He Zheng tied his wide sleeves, and the white arms were exposed. Looking at his posture, he seemed to be preparing for a big fight. He sat down in front of the window, raised a sharp knife, and said, “it doesn’t matter if your Majesty doesn’t want to do it. I’ll do it myself. I just want to do something with your Majesty.”
Fang Tianzhuo’s eyelashes trembled, and for a moment he lowered his eyes and said lightly, “Just engrave it according to the pattern on the drawing?”
“Yes!” He Zheng said: “You carve this, this is called six cake, I carve this, seven pieces.”
Fang Tianzhuo was very serious in his work. He Zheng took a sharp-nosed carving knife and scraped a wooden block to make soy sauce, and his eyes secretly glanced at his profile.
The pieces of wood are just thrown around like this, and it will take more time to cut slowly. He Zheng’s mind is not really on this at all.
“Okay.” Fang Tianzhuo showed him the engraved pattern, and He Zheng took it in surprise: “You engraved it so well! It’s so round!”
Fang Tianzhuo ignored his flattery and took another one to continue engraving.
The sky was getting dark, and the palace lanterns were hung up one after another.
In the basket containing the finished product, a few carved wooden blocks gradually appeared, all of which were handed over from Fang Tianzhuo and then thrown by He Zheng.
The seven in He Zheng’s hand only have one line drawn.
Fang Tianzhuo suddenly realized that something was wrong and looked at the small wooden block in his hand.
He Zheng said: “You look serious and look good, and I’m in a trance all of a sudden.”
Fang Tianzhuo pursed his lips, smiling but not smiling: “How many have I carved?”
Do you want me to work overtime to keep up with his progress in the future… He Zheng turned weakly to pick up the finished product: “One, two… Seventeen, Your Majesty, you are really amazing.”
He Zheng: “…”
He started to nod his head again, thinking about how many times Fang Tianzhuo had cut him this time, and he heard him say, “Come here.”
He Zheng went over and sat beside him obediently.
Fang Tianzhuo looked at him for a while, then suddenly said, “What’s the use of you?”
“…” This is the same as what his father said to him.
He Zheng was afraid that he would pull him out and cut him out, so he grabbed something and said, “I’ll fan you.”
Fang Tianzhuo’s face was bullying him, and he was waiting for a kiss: “Fan me, anyone can do it.”
He Zheng hesitantly kissed him.
“I carved seventeen.”
“…” He Zheng kissed him again, but Fang Tianzhuo’s body still didn’t retract, He Zheng was in a hurry. He kissed him seventeen times in a row.
Fang Tianzhuo finally retracted his body.
He Zheng breathed a sigh of relief and saw that he threw the last engraved one into the finished product basket, and picked him up: “I’m tired, I want to rest.”
Still can’t escape.
The next morning, He Zheng sat up from the bed, yawned a lot, sat for a while in a daze, and started to get out of bed to pack up.
It’s time to go to Yuanma Mansion tomorrow. He has to pack up his things in advance, so Fang Tianzhuo wouldn’t wait for him.
However, Fang Tianzhuo hadn’t come for a few days. He probably saved too much last night, and he was sore all over. When he was idly leaning on the reclining chair at noon, Shunyi suddenly ran while panting: “The First, Concubine Luo went to your Majesty to complain about you!”
What’s going on here?
Since the day before yesterday, Qiu Shuiluo had discovered that the chicken she ate was not a whole chicken.
She wanted to see it even if she couldn’t finish a whole chicken, but when the two imperial concubines greeted her yesterday, they complained to her that the chicken they ate wasn’t the whole chicken..
When she went to the imperial kitchen to ask, she realized that He Shanshou had chopped off all the chicken feet and ate it.
It wasn’t a big deal at first, but the problem was that Qiu Shuiluo also wanted to eat chicken feet. She couldn’t eat chicken feet once and twice. When did she ever suffer such grievances? The more she thought about it, the more she felt that He Zheng was doing it on purpose!
So he ran to Fang Tianzhuo angrily.
When He Zheng arrived in a hurry, he saw Qiu Shuiluo and a few palace concubines sitting on a chair beside him, while Fang Tianzhuo was tapping his temple with a smile that was not a smile.
He Zheng glanced at the indignant concubine Luo Gui, and the concubine who was hanging her head and didn’t dare to look at him, his expression filled with embarrassment.
He never thought that he could eat a “bloody” case by eating chicken feet.
Fang Tianzhuo said: “Do you understand what happened?”
He Zheng nodded: “Understood.”
“What do you want to say?”
He Zheng turned around and apologized to Concubine Luo: “I’m sorry, I’ll make some marinated chicken feet for you in the future, okay?”
Fang Tianzhuo beat He Zheng in, but the smile in his eyes never faded. Qiu Shuiluo was expecting He Zheng to choke a few times. How could he have thought that he was so reasonable, her cheeks flushed and tears were suffocating to come down: “You, do you think this palace is missing a few chicken feet!”
He Zheng was right this time. He was so frightened by her crying that she took two steps back subconsciously, and said, “Well, then I won’t eat it in the future, okay?”
“You—!!!” Qiu Shuiluo trembled.
He Zheng only realized today that ancient times were different from modern times, and the breeding industry appeared to be less developed; how could he have predicted that the chicken with its feet chopped would actually cause the Qiushuiluo Palace to complain, but the imperial kitchen staff were too daring to serve a chicken with its feet chopped off.
In fact, the royal kitchen was ashamed as well. Nobody expected He Zheng to suddenly become obsessed with chicken feet. All of their chicken claws had recently been chopped for him, resulting in a pile of hens without claws, making it difficult to dispose of them. Nanmen Liang simply said that he could use them normally after consulting him, and that if the chicken didn’t have two claws, who could turn the sky?
Originally, the imperial pantry had intentionally taken care of Qiu Shuiluo here, but He Zheng has been eating more and more recently, so he had no choice but to send one without claws.
After three days of delivery, it finally angered Qiu Shuiluo.
She couldn’t understand how this He Zheng could be so powerful; even if he occupied His Majesty, the entire palace would have to eat chicken! She despised him so much in her heart, but she really can’t hurt He Zheng, so she could only cry.
How could the harem’s majestic concubine weep tears? She quickly wiped them away, but the more she wiped, the fiercer she grew, her lips pursed into a curved line, and she glared at He Zheng as if about to devour him.
“That’s it.” He Zheng had to give another solution: “Anyway, I will be leaving the palace with Your Majesty in a few days, and I will chop the chicken feet for you, okay?”
Qiu Shuiluo suddenly stopped crying: “What did you say? Your Majesty, is His Majesty taking you out of the palace?”
Her hurried gaze immediately met Fang Tianzhuo above: “Your Majesty, do you really want to bring Shanshou out of the palace?”
She looked in disbelief.
Because the Empress Dowager was old and the harem couldn’t function without a master, Fang Tianzhuo had a false harem previously. She couldn’t wait to recommend herself to her father and gain Fang Tianzhuo’s permission to enter the palace.
She was well aware that once she had entered the palace and assumed the status of concubine, she would find it difficult to leave in this life. She was no longer free, whether she was pregnant, old, sick, or dead.
When His Majesty goes out, he can bring ministers, guards, and servants, but not the palace concubine.
Even so, she is willing to guard the harem for Fang Tianzhuo, guarding this huge home, even if he doesn’t look at her at all.
But now, He Zheng appeared.
He broke the rules that male pets cannot have a title, and now he is about to break the rule of leaving the palace.
Your Majesty, take him with him wherever he goes!
Fang Tianzhuo said lightly: “This matter has nothing to do with the imperial concubine.”
Qiu Shuiluo had tears on her face, and her face was pale.
No one dared to anger Fang Tianzhuo, the questioning tone had already made him unhappy, and continuing to question would only make the dragon furious.
She was helped away by the palace servants, and He Zheng stood in the hall, feeling more and more embarrassed: “Emperor, I will also retire.”
He Zheng stopped and waited for orders.
“You can’t say more about me taking you out of the palace.”
He Zheng nodded immediately.
He Zheng refused to eat chicken feet ever again. He had heard that Qiu Shuiluo refused to eat chicken feet, but there was also talk around the palace that he was overbearing and haughty. What kind of person would eat chicken feet instead of chicken? It’s just arrogance!
He Zheng was too lazy to take care of it.
Before dawn the next day, he followed Fang Tianzhuo’s team out of the palace and boarded the boat at the pier. The whole group saluted Fang Tianzhuo. He looked up from the gauze hat and found that there were some people in the group. He Run, Jiang Fuyang, and… Luo Yuanhou.
He Zheng was stunned for a moment, and then thought that bringing an imperial doctor with him could avoid some minor problems on his body, but…why does his back feel prickly.
In order to suppress the panic in his heart, he slowly stretched out his hand and gently held Fang Tianzhuo’s.
Fang Tianzhuo: “…”
Why does it look like something suddenly drilled through his fingertips, making his heart numb? Zheng’er is hiding something in his palm today.
T/N: FT is clearly favoring HZ but that is how it is back in the olden days.
