Lose at sunrise and gain at sunset (Chinese saying).
After sunset, HBAG Chapter Seventy-Two contains mature content.
‘Mistress, Xiao Tu and young master is back!’ Xiao Zai announced.
Pei Jin was playing chess with Bei Dou. After Pei Jin heard Yan Shi Ning was back, he threw the chess piece and ran outside.
Bei Dou looked like he didn’t care but his legs ran fast.
The moment Yan Shi Ning carried her son and stepped out of the horse carriage, she saw everyone crowded together at the front of the manor. But her eyes solely focused on Pei Jin who stood at the centre.
Pei Jin and Yan Shi Ning felt each day they were separated was like being separated for three autumns.
Yan Shi Ning wanted to run and hug Pei Jin. But Pei Jin ran to her and hugged her first.
‘Our son!’ Yan Shi Ning warned.
Pei Xiao Niao was squashed between his parents, his head ached and he cried loudly.
Pei Jin loosened his hold around Yan Shi Ning’s waist and assessed their son.
‘Why is he this ugly?’ Pei Jin asked.
‘Even if he is this ugly he’s still your son!’ Yan Shi Ning said.
Pei Xiao Niao was insulted by his father and cried louder.
That evening everyone held a reunion banquet. After the banquet Pei Jin asked a guard to watch over Pei Xiao Niao in the nursery. Then Pei Jin dragged Yan Shi Ning to their chamber, locked the door and kissed her against the door.
Pei Jin tasted the sweet wine on Yan Shi Ning’s tongue. His hands slid down her dress and rubbed her plump breasts that were round and soft as soybeans. He felt like he could squeeze all the milk out of her breasts. He had been starved for too long so all his blood flowed between his legs.
Yan Shi Ning’s body was responsive to Pei Jin’s teasing, her body instinctively recognised his body. Her body turned limp the moment his hands touched her breasts. After he spread her legs wide apart, she couldn’t stand steady.
‘Not here,’ Yan Shi Ning said.
Yan Shi Ning thought Pei Jin wanted to eat her at the door where other people could easily hear them.
Pei Jin carried Yan Shi Ning and kissed her lips on the way to the bed. He laid her on the bed and quickly took off their clothes. Afterward he pinned her to the bed and entered inside her.
A hard body and a soft body connected and their moans and groans mixed together in the chamber.
Pei Jin held Yan Shi Ning’s waist and pounded in and out of her body. ‘Did you miss me?’
Yan Shi Ning clutched Pei Jin’s neck, raised her head and kissed him. She closed her eyes above her flushed red cheeks. ‘How can I not miss you?’
Pei Jin wasn’t satisfied with Yan Shi Ning’s answer and punished her by thrusting hard and deep into her.
Pei Jin wanted to eat Yan Shi Ning ferociously that night to compensate for all the nights they were separated. She cooperated with him. They were entrapped inside their haze of desire. Her body peaked many times and each time her body trembled, she begged for mercy. After the haze slowly melted, she felt muscle pain and didn’t have energy to move even her fingers and toes.
In contrast Pei Jin’s desire was insatiable. After he saw Yan Shi Ning opened her eyes, he kissed her lips.
‘No…’ Yan Shi Ning pleaded.
Pei Jin smiled innocently. ‘What do I do about this?’
Pei Jin pulled Yan Shi Ning’s hand to rub his hard erection and she cried for mercy.
‘I’m teasing you,’ Pei Jin lied. ‘Let’s bathe together first.’
After a long time, half of the water inside the bath tub was splashed outside of the bath tub and Yan Shi Ning laid limp against Pei Jin’s chest.
‘Go see your son!’ Yan Shi Ning surrendered.
Yan Shi Ning napped but was awoken by Pei Xiao Niao’s loud cry. She opened her eyes and saw Pei Jin was carrying Pei Xiao Niao and sitting on a chair. Pei Jin looked frustrated and Pei Xiao Niao cried loudly.
Yan Shi Ning sat on the bed. ‘What happened?’
‘I only wanted to hold him but I didn’t expect he would cry,’ Pei Jin said. ‘So I coaxed him to sleep… then this little scoundrel cried in his sleep!’
Yan Shi Ning picked up Pei Xiao Niao from Pei Jin’s arms and coaxed him to sleep for a while but he didn’t stop crying. So she took off her undergarments and breastfed Pei Xiao Niao.
Pei Xiao Niao stopped crying after he could smell milk. He suckled his mother’s nipple and drank milk.
Yan Shi Ning patted Pei Xiao Niao’s bottom and slowly coaxed him to sleep. She raised her head and feared for her life, Pei Jin was silently staring at her breasts.
Yan Shi Ning put Pei Xiao Niao back in his cot and returned to the bed.
‘In the future if you tease your son then you’re responsible for coaxing him to stop crying,’ Yan Shi Ning said. ‘Why did imperial father free me and your son?’
‘Imperial father’s heart grew compassion,’ Pei Jin said.
‘Why?’ Yan Shi Ning asked.
‘Shi Ning, do you want to know why seventh brother was willing to kill Dian Thi’s son?’ Pei Jin asked.
Yan Shi Ning’s eyes brightened.
‘Dian Thi’s son… isn’t seventh brother’s blood son,’ Pei Jin said.
‘What?’ Yan Shi Ning asked. ‘How did you find out?’
‘From a spy in the palace,’ Pei Jin said.
