Chapter 58 – Promise
After pulling Xuan Yuan Han Cheng up, Lin Jia Bao slightly stood on his tiptoes and kissed him.
Of course, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng was not going to let a chance like this slip by. He must take advantage of the opportunity whenever his baby willingly delivered himself into his arms. So he took his baby’s kiss and deepened it.
Lin Jia Bao took the initiative to wrap his arms around Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s neck, and obediently let Xuan Yuan Han Cheng kiss him.
Reluctantly, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng pulled away from his baby’s sweet lips. The emotions in his eyes deepened all the more upon seeing the lips that were kissed until glossy and moist by him.
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng held Lin Jia Bao so tightly that he could feel his body heat seeping through his clothes. Lin Jia Bao seemed to have been scorched by the heat. His eyes were as wide as dinner plates as he stared at Xuan Yuan Han Cheng in surprise.
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng was amused by his darling’s expression, “Baby, you have to believe in yourself. You don’t have to grow up to draw my attention. I am already deeply captivated by you. But I will wait for you to grow up. When you’re all grown up, I’m going to swallow you whole.”

Lin Jia Bao’s face burned red under Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s burning hot gaze. He lowered his head in embarrassment.
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng refused to let him go. He continued to embrace his baby, and kissed him on the forehead, brows, and cheeks. He kissed all the way down to Lin Jia Bao’s neck and then he reached out to open up Jia Bao’s collar.
“Nn… Husband, you… Husband, how many women do you have? I’ve never seen any of them before.” Lin Jia Bao hesitated before asking the same the question that his father, Lin Da Zhuang, had asked him when they last saw each other.
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng was completely immersed in the act of sucking on Lin Jia Bao’s clavicle. Hearing Lin Jia Bao’s question, he raised his head, looked at his baby, and said, “Besides Xu-shi, there are two more concubines, Song-shi and Yu-shi, and there are also two daughters. If the chance comes up, you will see them in the future.”
“Xu-shi said…” Lin Jia Bao remembered what Xu Xue Ying had said to him before.
“I’ve already sent Xu-shi to the cold palace. She committed an unforgiveable wrong. She has no one to blame but herself.” Xuan Yuan Han Cheng interrupted Lin Jia Bao’s words and said sternly: “You don’t have to worry about Song-shi and Yu-shi. The past cannot be changed, but whether it’s in the present or in the future, I will not touch them or anyone else.”
Lin Jia Bao did not reply. His husband’s words weaved a beautiful dream for him. That dream was so beautiful that he didn’t care about the authenticity of the dream at all.
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng took Jia Bao into his arms. He knew his baby was still deeply worried, but it didn’t matter. He had a lifetime to prove his words.
“Oh, that’s right, what about the crown princess? Is her illness very bad?” Lin Jia Bao thought of the most important woman by his husband’s side.
“Baby, you don’t have to worry about her at all. As early as when I was on the expedition, the crown princess has already ‘died of illness.’ Because of various reasons, I couldn’t disclose this information to the outside world, and instead, claimed that she was ill in bed and could not see anyone.”
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng thought it would be okay for his baby to know the truth about the crown princess’s death, so he told him.
Lin Jia Bao nodded to indicate that he understood. “En, I will keep it secret.”
Xuan Yuan Han Cheng looked at Jia Bao, whose brows were stretched out, and kissed him on the cheek, “Baby, are you reassured now?”
Lin Jia Bao smiled lightly.
“Baby, smile again.” Xuan Yuan Han Cheng loved to see the smiling face of his darling.
Lin Jia Bao obediently gave Xuan Yuan Han Cheng a big smile. That bright and beautiful smiling face made Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s spirit shake for a second. Those deep dimples were so charming and adorable.

“Your husband’s wish is to see the smiling face of my baby everyday.” Xuan Yuan Han Cheng said: “So my baby should be happy everyday.”
Wrapped up against his husband’s broad chest, Lin Jia Bao giggled upon hearing Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s words. His heart felt so sweet, it was as if he had eaten a lot of honey.
Shu Ya and Shu Qing stood outside the bedroom, and they were relieved when they heard Lin-xiaozhu’s laughter coming from the room. Lin-xiaozhu’s complexion was very bad when he came back not too long ago, and they were very worried.
“His Royal Highness really has a way with Lin-xiaozhu. In just a short while, he was able to coax the little master…” Shu Qin said.
Shu Ya said: “The little master’s thoughts are simple and pure. He is also well behaved and obedient. He’s actually very easy to coax.”
