After the bathroom session, Fei Cheng carried Nan HuaiLin to the bedroom. Fei Cheng took him into his arms, kissed his shoulder and neck tenderly, and asked in a muffled voice, “Do you want more?”
Nan HuaiLin gave a low, inaudible “mmm.”
In fact, the first time he was pregnant with the dragon eggs, he was tormented by exuberant desire, but fortunately, at that time, he shot two movies back-to-back, and that consumed most of his energy, so he didn’t live too tormented.
This time while he was pregnant with the second set, the desire seemed to come even more fiercely than when he had the other ones. He was like a gluttonous snake that could never get enough, and couldn’t help but keep asking for more.
Fei Cheng came in gently, lowered his head and took one of his small nipples. He sucked tenderly on the sweet milk while he slowly moved. He had been very measured lately, slow and soothing, without any violent movements. At first it was quite uncomfortable, but gradually Nan HuaiLin got the taste for it and couldn’t stop.
It was already early in the morning when it was over.
Fei Cheng didn’t withdraw. He wanted to block the exit to ensure that all the dragon essence remained inside Nan HuaiLin, and was fully absorbed. He embraced Nan HuaiLin from behind, kissed his neck which was covered with a thin layer of sweat, and asked softly, “Baby, do you want some water?”
Nan HuaiLin nodded slightly.
Fei Cheng reached out, and took the water cup from the bedside. He took two sips himself, then took a sip in his mouth and fed it to Nan HuaiLin. After taking two more sips, he put the water cup back, and turned off the light with his hand. He contentedly embraced the person in his arms and whispered, “Go to sleep. Good night.”
Nan HuaiLin was already a little dazed. He rubbed his arm against the pillow, and replied vaguely, “Good night…”
The next morning, Nan HuaiLin woke up even earlier than Fei Cheng.
It was probably because he was nourished by the dragon essence, but he didn’t feel tired at all, just full of energy. He moved, and found that Fei Cheng was still connected to him in the same position he was in before he fell asleep last night, and abruptly stiffened. His body quickly started to burn.
Nan HuaiLin gritted his teeth. He had just moved forward a little, when the hand around his waist suddenly and forcefully closed. The two people became closely connected together.
Fei Cheng raised his waist. Nan HuaiLin moaned, grabbed his arm and shouted in a hoarse voice, “Don’t…don’t move!”
Fei Cheng stopped moving. His face was buried in his neck as he rubbed it intimately. His voice was also a bit hoarse. “Did you sleep well?”
Nan HuaiLin hmmed, “Especially good. Did not dream.”
“I did,” Fei Cheng said. “I dreamed…”
“Don’t say that,” Nan HuaiLin interrupted him. “It’s bad luck to repeat a dream in the morning.”
“Is that so?” Fei Cheng chuckled. “How come I don’t know this saying?”
Nan HuaiLin said, “My mom said it when I was a kid, and I’ve remembered it ever since.”
Fei Cheng said, “Speaking of our mother, didn’t you say that both parents should have dinner together? I mentioned it to my brother and he said anytime is fine. Let’s get it done before you go to the U.S. to shoot a movie.”
“I forgot about it until you told me,” Nan HuaiLin said. “I’ll call my mom today, and ask them to come to Beijing.”
Fei Cheng said, “Why don’t you just let Mom and Dad stay in Beijing? The house in the Dong Fang Mansion is vacant anyway, so let Mom and Dad live there.”
Nan HuaiLin thought about it. “I don’t think so. They won’t be used to it, and it will be bad if they know about the existence of the little dragons. Also when the second set is born, we will have to go to Undersea City to live, and my parents will be lonely here.”
Fei Cheng nodded and said sweetly, “It’s still my wife’s thoughtfulness.”
Nan HuaiLin looked at the LED clock above the bed, “It’s almost seven o’clock. It’s time for the little dragons to get up. Let’s get up too.”
Fei Cheng put his arm around him, and gave him a little nudge. “Let’s do some morning exercises first.”
“Stop it,” Nan HuaiLin backhandedly pressed his waist. “Even if you toss and turn for an hour it will not be enough. Dragon Two will surely come to ask for milk once they wake up.”
“The door is closed, he can’t get in.” Fei Cheng grabbed his hand and interlocked their fingers. “The morning is more sensitive, I will finish quickly.”
Nan HuaiLin glanced at the electronic clock again. “Then…You hurry up.”
Fei Cheng laughed twice, and began a gentle morning exercise.
After a while, there was a sudden banging on the door.
Not knocking, but banging, one by one, muffled, not too loud.
“Honey,” Nan HuaiLin tensed up. “Is Dragon Two banging on the door?”
Fei Cheng gave a muffled grunt and didn’t tense up.
“Go and open the door,” Nan HuaiLin said worriedly. “Don’t let it bang.”
Fei Cheng could only force himself to withdraw, and put on his underwear to open the door.
As soon as the door was opened, Dragon Two, who was banging against the door, hit Fei Cheng on the chest. Fei Cheng caught him, kicked the door closed and carried him to the bed.
Nan HuaiLin sat up, put the quilt to his waist, reached out and picked up Dragon Two, who eagerly took in the delicious source.
Fei Cheng sat and watched with an unhappy look on his face as he tugged on Dragon Two’s tail. He hated the way he wanted to beat him up.
Nan HuaiLin opened his free hand and said after a pause, “Feeding only Dragon Two seems too wrong…But the amount of milk is too small. Feeding two baby dragons should be fine, but four is definitely not. What should we do?”
Fei Cheng thought about it and said, “Once they drink breast milk, they definitely won’t drink milk powder. Let’s feed Dragon Two for now, and then feed Dragon Fice when they hatch.”
Nan HuaiLin nodded, “I feel a little sorry for Dragon One, Dragon Three and Dragon Four.”
“What’s wrong with that, silly?” Fei Cheng said with a smile. “They drink the same milk powder. They haven’t even had a sip of breast milk, but they are still thriving.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “Go and see what the other baby dragons are doing.”
Fei Cheng said “Yes,” then put on his clothes and went out.
Dragon Two ate for ten minutes before he stopped, but he didn’t go to play, he just clung to Nan HuaiLin.
He watched as Nan HuaiLin dressed. As Nan HuaiLin washed, he was standing firmly on his shoulder, like a pendant.
Nan HuaiLin brushed his teeth while looking at Dragon Two in the mirror. He felt as if Dragon Two had gained a little weight over the last few days.
Dragon Two was also staring at himself in the mirror.
He tilted his head, and the little dragon in the mirror tilted his head too.
He flapped his wings, and the little dragon in the mirror also flapped his wings. He wagged his tail, and the little dragon in the mirror wagged his tail with him. He didn’t move, and the little dragon in the mirror didn’t move either.
Nan HuaiLin thought it was a bit funny, and looked at him with arched eyebrows.
Suddenly, Dragon Two fluttered its wings, and flew straight toward the mirror.
“Hey!” Nan HuaiLin was startled, and hurriedly reached out to grab him, but he missed it and heard a “bang!” Dragon Two hit the mirror head on, and then fell into the sink against the mirror.
Nan HuaiLin hurriedly took him out with both hands. Nan HuaiLin was both amused and distressed. He looked down to see that the left horn of the dragon seemed to be a little crooked.
Nan HuaiLin panicked and hurriedly went to Fei Cheng with the crying Dragon Two in his arms.
Fei Cheng was folding the quilt in the bedroom. He took Dragon Two and looked at him, “It’s okay, it will be fine in a couple of days.” He nodded at Dragon Two’s right horn, and said with a smile, “Little thing, you’re really two-faced. No wonder you’re called Dragon Two.”
Nan HuaiLin fought for Dragon Two. “You might have been even worse than him when you were a kid.”
Fei Cheng burst into tears and said, “How dare you talk to your husband like that?”
Nan HuaiLin gave him a kiss on tiptoe and said with a smile, “You play with the boys. I’ll go help Lan make breakfast.”
When he came downstairs, Nan HuaiLin first went to see Dragon Five in Lancelot’s room. It was still a small egg with a smooth, round shell and no cracks. He was a little uneasy and wanted Fei Zheng to take a look.
When he passed by the living room, Dragon One was bullying his brothers again. Nan HuaiLin mediated the brothers’ conflict, and turned around to go into the kitchen.
“Good morning,” Nan HuaiLin said with a smile.
“Good morning,” Lancelot returned.
“What’s cooking?” Nan HuaiLin asked.
“How about making a seaweed and clam soup and stir-frying two dishes? A small stir-fry with pork and hand-torn cabbage?”
“Anything you make is delicious.” Nan HuaiLin helped pack the clams.
Lancelot chopped the vegetables and casually asked, “How’s Lowden?”
Nan HuaiLin looked at him, “You know Mr. Lowden, too?”
Lancelot smiled. “I was with him for less than a year, but I haven’t heard from him since we broke up.”
Nan HuaiLin nodded, and after a pause said, “He seems nice.”
Lancelot was silent. “…That’s good.”
After breakfast, Fei Cheng went to work in his suit.
Nan HuaiLin walked him to the door and Fei Cheng said, “By the way, there’s a reception in the evening to celebrate Ming Xi’s 10th anniversary. Many famous directors, writers and actors will attend.”
Nan HuaiLin really didn’t like going to cocktail parties and banquets. He was too socially awkward and had very little to say to strangers, so he felt out of place in those situations.
Fei Cheng said, “Anyway, it’s just idle at home, so just come and keep me company, okay?”
Nan HuaiLin asked, “Where is it? What time does it start?”
Fei Cheng said, “8:30, the Oriental Grand Hyatt. Just below our house.”
The little dragons went to bed at seven, so he could go out. Nan HuaiLin nodded, “I know, I’ll be there.”
Fei Cheng looked down and kissed him, “Then Hubby is going to work.”
Nan HuaiLin smiled and said, “Drive slowly.”
When he went back inside, Nan HuaiLin called his mother.
“Mom, why don’t you and Dad come to Beijing in the next two days,” he said. “Meet and eat with Fei Cheng’s brother, and I’ll show you around for a few days. I haven’t worked lately.”
Geng XiaoRong said, “Okay, let’s do it the day after tomorrow. I’ll get ready with your dad.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “What’s there to prepare for? Just come straight over. I’ll buy the high-speed train tickets for you.”
“What do you know?” Geng XiaoRong said, “Brothers are like fathers. They are also in-laws. We can’t meet for the first time empty-handed.”
Nan HuaiLin said, “I will accompany you to buy whatever you want to buy when you get to Beijing, so that you don’t have to carry it with you on the way.”
Geng XiaoRong said, “Don’t worry about it. Your father and I will take care of it.”
After he hung up the phone, Nan HuaiLin felt he needed to get some exercise.
He grabbed the little dragons. “Come on, Dragon One, Two, Three, and Four. Daddy will take you to play in the water.”
