Chapter 39: A Barrel of Vinegar

'Even if you only want me, I am still happy.

I won't need anything. I won't want anything.

My love is enough for both of us.'

FengJiu hugged MinFeng.

She took a deep breath and inhaled his scent.

They hugged each other for almost a tea time[1].






She chuckled.

She rubbed her face on his chest and slowly patted his back.

"FengJiu... I'm home..."

MinFeng whispered as he closed his eyes while caressing her hair.

FengJiu could not help but smile widely.

"Enn... This is home.."

'You are my home.'

FengJiu tried to stop her tears.

She did not know why she wanted to cry even though she was happy.

She tried to calm herself because she did not want him to see hear cry.


She did not respond but she tightened her embrace.


MinFeng could feel that she was being emotional so he just pulled her closer to him.

Minutes later, she broke free from his embrace and stared at his eyes.

"MinFeng... I-I... There's something that I wanted to s-say to you.. Actually, I'm..."

Before FengJiu blurted every out, she managed to stop herself.

FengJiu realized something.

If she would say now that she was pregnant, MinFeng might get angry at her because he would find out that before they reconciled, she decided to conceal the fact that she was pregnant. He might even think that she wanted to hide the baby.

(A/N: isn't that your initial plan? *eyes rolled*)

She sighed. For sure, he would 'discipline' her for lying to him.


MinFeng stared at her while waiting for her to continue speaking.

"I'm... I'm hungry..."

She whined like a spoiled brat. She pouted her lips and grabbed his shoulder while shaking it lightly.

MinFeng laughed.

He laughed and then kissed her on the lips.

"Okay... I'll prepare a snack for you.. Just wait here."

He kissed her once more and went downstairs.

When the door closed, FengJiu exhaled.

Although she really wanted to tell him right now, she needed to wait for the right time.

She had to plan everything out. She must prepare a great surprise to appease his anger. So he would think that she delayed informing him to surprise him.

FengJiu stared at the ceiling.

She gently stroked her abdomen.

'Little Bump. Just wait a little longer... Mommy wants to surprise Daddy so she can only hide you for now.. Don't get angry, okay? Mommy loves you... And I know Daddy will also love you.'

Few minutes later MinFeng arrived while holding a tray. It has a glass of milk, a plate of biscuits and a bowl of sliced fruits.

He put the tray on the side table and carried the milk towards FengJiu.

"Drink it first."

He gave it to her and climbed the bed. After she finished drinking, he placed the empty glass on the tray and reached for the biscuits.

"Do you want to eat this?"

FengJiu shook her head.

"I want fruits."

MinFeng returned the plate. He reached for the other one.

He sat and leaned on the bed.

He tried to find a comfortable position and beckoned FengJiu to come closer.

FengJiu moved forward and snuggled herself between his chest and shoulder.

He half-embraced her and pulled her closer.


He grabbed the fork and started to feed her personally.

FengJiu's eyes twinkled as she opened her mouth.

"Is it sweet?"

"Enn.. It's very sweet."

FengJiu smiled brightly while chewing.

"Let me taste it."

Before FengJiu could react, MinFeng already captured her lips.

He sucked her lips hungrily and snatched the fruit from her mouth.

He licked her lips and grinned.

"Indeed.. It's very sweet."

FengJiu glared at him while blushing red.

He laughed and kissed her forehead.

"Eat more."

They continued eating and flirting with each other until FengJiu could not eat more.

"No more~ I'm full.."

She whined and rubbed her eyes.

She was starting to get sleepy. She was almost two months pregnant. Little Bump was already seven weeks and she could feel that her sleepiness increased. Luckily, Little Bump was very well behaved. She never really experienced massive vomiting nor extreme dizziness. That time she fainted on the road, it was because she was feeling stressed and heartbroken.

After hearing her words, MinFeng placed the bowl of fruits on the tray.

He grabbed FengJiu's hand that was rubbing her eyes.

"Stop it. It will hurt your eyes."

MinFeng kissed both of her eyes and pulled her closer. He pressed her head towards his chest and kissed her hair.

"Sleep. I'll hold you for a while."

MinFeng was afraid that she might get bloated if she laid on the bed immediately after eating so he just let her sleep on his embrace.

FengJiu immediately fell asleep after a few minutes.


Noticing FengJiu's even breathing, MinFeng slowly adjusted his position so he could completely envelope her on his embrace.

When FengJiu nodded and forgave him, he wanted to take her immediately.

He wanted to express his passion towards her.

He wanted to make love to her.

But he resisted his desire to possess her.

He wanted to take it slow.

Even if he had to endure, he would.

He did not want to rush everything like what he did previously.

Since they already reconciled, they would have a lifetime to share together.

MinFeng was currently looking at FengJiu when her phone rang while vibrating.

FengJiu stirred.

MinFeng was afraid that it would wake FengJiu up so he reached her phone to turn it off.

He froze when he saw the message on the notification.

It was Xiao Mei.

[Ah Jiu! YanFei gege finally returned here in Beijing!! ҉٩(*´︶`*)۶ ҉ ]

MinFeng's eyes darkened.

"Mmm.. MinFeng, what's wrong?"

He immediately placed the phone on the table.

"Nothing. Go back to sleep."

He adjusted their position so she could lay down comfortably.

FengJiu put her face on his neck and snuggled closer.

MinFeng patted her shoulder rhythmically as he lulled her like a baby.

As he recalled that this YanFei was FengJiu's first love, MinFeng sneered.

'FengJiu might have feelings for him when they were young but right now, she's mine and mine alone. If he tries to covet her, I will turn this YanFei into meat paste.'

MinFeng could feel a sour taste in his mouth. As if he drank a whole barrel of vinegar.

    She could fake-throw up in front of him and make them go to the clinic to confirm the pregnancy and act like she didn’t know 😂😍😍😍😂

    I want to sleep but knowing that there are still 2 chapters more tonight...... btw it's good knowing that your father is fine now and hoping that he won't feel disheartened due to losing his finger.
