Li Chengjing couldn’t help pacing back and forth. He was the Crown Prince, the Emperor’s eldest di son. His children were naturally also the direct heirs to the throne. If Cheng Yujin gave birth to a pair of daughters, it was a good omen worthy for the whole country to celebrate. But in the case of sons…

Cheng Yujin felt a pang of sadness in her heart. She leaned closer, put her head on Li Chengjing’s shoulder, and said: “Your Highness, there will be more people waiting for you to go home in the future.”

Although Li Chengjing had no experience, he also knew that a woman’s slippery pulse was a pregnancy pulse. Even though he already had speculation in his heart, Li Chengjing was still overjoyed upon hearing the confirmation from the imperial physician. His eyes lit up, barely maintaining his image as the dignified Crown Prince as he asked impatiently: “Are you sure? How long has it been?”

Cheng Yujin feigned polite rejection two times before she finally bowed in thanks and left Kunning Palace. After she returned to Ciqing Palace, the lack of tension seemed to exacerbate her nausea and fatigue. Cheng Yujin sat slumped on the soft cushions, massaging her forehead lightly. Du Ruo, who came in with a bowl of nourishing tonic, frowned and asked, “Crown Princess, what’s wrong with you?”

Cheng Yujin originally planned to turn the table using the chess game, but unfortunately, the thickness of her skin was still inferior to that of Li Chengjing.
When Li Chengjing took Cheng Yujin to the bath, he asked with a sigh: “Is this what Old Madam Cheng taught you today?”
At this moment, it was already dark outside. The light of many lanterns shone quietly, and the world was very silent. The mood was indeed perfect to ‘play chess.’ Li Chengjing turned back and smiled at Cheng Yujin, “Sure enough, people will grow. Should we celebrate?”
Cheng Yujin raised her eyebrows and said, “Your Highness wants to refuse?”
Old Madam Cheng looked straight at Cheng Yujin. The meaning in her eyes was very straightforward: “Crown Princess, you and Crown Prince stand taller than others, but the burden on your shoulders is also heavier. Even ordinary people strive for the position of the eldest grandson, let alone someone like you? Crown Prince is the proper eldest di son, so you must never yield the position of the imperial eldest grandson to someone else.”
At the end of the first month, the name of the Second Princess Consort was finally announced. Outsiders had no way to know what kind of cracks were forming inside the Yang family, but when the Empress issued the marriage edict at the end of the month, many people let out a long “ah.”
Although there was a bit of surprise, it was not completely unexpected.
Li Chengjing took Cheng Yujin’s hand into his, placed it on his lap, and nodded slightly, “It’s done.”
Cheng Yujin subconsciously raised her eyebrows. She seemed a little anxious, but she tried to stay calm: “What is the situation now?”

Du Ruo quietly entered the hall, walked to Cheng Yujin, and whispered something in her ears. Cheng Yujin nodded in response without saying a word.
