Chapter 95 – Colored Lantern* (31.1)

[*T/N: Specifically the kind used at the Lantern Festival, which is the 15th day of the Lunar New Year.]

As the saying goes, sickness comes like a landslide, but goes slowly like spinning silk. Lin Jia Bao’s illness improved slowly, and he lost a lot of weight. Xuan Yuan Han Cheng was deeply distressed when he saw that the little bit of weight that his baby had put on was now all gone, and he was skinny like before.

Xuan Yuan Han Cheng ordered Shu Ya to prepare medicinal cuisine for Jia Bao everyday to nurse his health. Finally, Jia Bao’s complexion looked a little better in the past two days.

On the fifteenth day of the first lunar month, on the Lantern Festival, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng negated the idea of Lin Jia Bao personally making sticky rice dumplings. To him, his darling’s health was the most important thing. As long as they could spend the holiday together, then nothing else mattered.

In the evening, they ate delicious sticky rice dumplings together. The sweet red bean paste was Lin Jia Bao’s favorite. Lin Jia Bao ate six sticky rice dumplings in one sitting. When he was about to go for a seventh one, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng stopped him.

“This sticky rice dumpling is good, but if you eat too much, it will be hard to digest. Stuffing yourself too much is not good… Darling, if you like it then just have the small kitchen make it again some other time…”

After hearing this, Lin Jia Bao had no choice but to obediently put down the tableware…

Xuan Yuan Han Cheng led Lin Jia Bao by the hand. “Darling, you’re such a good boy… come with me… my baby…”

Xuan Yuan Han Cheng took Lin Jia Bao outside to the courtyard.

Ever since Lin Jia bao got sick, he has not been allowed to leave the room. The weather was cold, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng was deeply afraid that Lin Jia Bao would catch a cold again, but he also knew that his darling was a little bored. Xuan Yuan Han Cheng knew that Lin Jia Bao has been looking forward to the Lantern Festival, so he specially prepared a surprise for Jia Bao.

The scenery in the yard stunned Lin Jia Bao. All the trees in the courtyard were covered with colored lanterns. Each lantern was colorful and different in shape. There were peony-shaped lanterns, lotus-shaped lanterns, and many more. They were all beautiful and delicate.

There were also some small, animal-shaped lanterns such as tiger lanterns, rabbit lanterns, kitten lanterns, deer lanterns, etc. All of them were vivid and lifelike.

With Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s support, Lin Jia Bao strolled around the courtyard. He stopped in front of each lantern to admire them.

“Which one does my darling like? Hm… the little rabbit?” With one arm wrapped around Lin Jia Bao, Xuan Yuan Han Cheng reached out his other arm to fetch down a little rabbit lantern from a tree branch and gave it to Lin Jia Bao.

Lin Jia Bao took the rabbit lantern and carefully held it in his hand.

When he was a child, he heard about people admiring the beauty of colored lanterns on the Lantern Festival. And in poems it would talk about a gifted scholar and a beautiful lady falling in love at first sight when they met at a lantern festival… He has never been to a lantern festival before, and now he understood why that beautiful lady in the poem gave her heart away because of a colored lantern…

Lin Jia Bao smiled and looked at Xuan Yuan Han Cheng. This was his royal highness, his prince, his husband, and the destination of his heart…

Xuan Yuan Han Cheng looked at his darling smiling face with fondness, and gently caressed the small dimples on his darling’s face. He bent down and lowered his head to kiss Lin Jia Bao’s small mouth. He repeatedly licked Jia Bao’s soft lips.

Lin Jia Bao closed his eyes, and opened his mouth slightly. Xuan Yuan Han Cheng’s tongue slipped inside and entangled with Jia Bao’s little tongue…

“Darling, let’s go back inside to the room…” Xuan Yuan Han Cheng said in a hoarse voice. With his darling treasure sick these past two days, he didn’t even have the privilege of being intimate with his baby. Alas…

Lin Jia Bao looked at the lanterns hanging on the trees, “What about these lanterns?”

“Baby, if you like them then just leave them hanging up…” Xuan Yuan Han Cheng said inattentively.

Lin Jia Bao thought about it and said, “It’s such a pity to just hang these beautiful lanterns here. Let’s share them with everyone. Kang’er and An’er would definitely like them.”

Xuan Yuan Han Cheng gestured for Yuan Fu to come over. He pointed at two colored lanterns, one peony shaped and one lotus shaped. He said, “Send these over to them, ba…”

“Understood.” Yuan Fu immediately ordered one of the eunuchs working under him to send the lanterns over.

Lin Jia Bao went on to say, “Also give one to Shu Ya, Shu Qin, Yuan Fu, oh, and Yuan Qing. I wonder if he is better now?”

“This little one thanks Lin-xiaozhu for the reward, and also thank you on behalf of Yuan Qing, still thinking of him… Yuan Qing is recovering very well. In a few more days, he will be able to return to the little master’s side and resume his post.”

Yuan Qing, this little kid, was quite lucky. It was so dangerous back then. He got injured, but it wasn’t a serious injury. After a few more days, he should be healthy and active again.

Lin Jia Bao felt relieved when he heard that Yuan Qing was recovering well.
