Chapter 762: Body Failing and Dying
Su Shenfan kept countless beauties in the Earthly Residence.
Gu Bailu thought about Bu Yaolian’s large, round face again. Although she was pretty, she was too fat.
Su Shenfan wasn’t Tang Xuanzong, who liked fat beauties.
But Bu Yaolian couldn’t lose weight. What should she do?
Gu Bailu had done everything she could to help Qian’er. Now, she had to focus on Bu Yaolian. Because she was worried about Qian’er, she hadn’t had the time to care about Bu Yaolian.
She felt sorry toward her.
In the evening, Feng Qingtian returned from the military camp outside the city. He saw Gu Bailu sitting by the window and staring at the round courtyard door outside. Her dark eyes immediately lit up when she saw him. “My lord, you’re back.”
Feng Qingtian quickened his pace and entered the house. He took off his cloak and looked at her. “Did you miss me?”
Gu Bailu nodded and stretched out her arms. “Hug me.”
“Wait a moment, I just came in from outside. My body’s cold.” It was only for that reason that he hadn’t embraced her already.
Gu Bailu moved to the end of the couch and hugged him around his waist. “I’m not scared of the cold.”
Feng Qingtian smiled and stroked her hair. “Good girl.”
He then picked her up and held her in his arms. Her petite body against his own sturdy one made him want to dote on her even more.
Feng Qingtian touched her belly. “Has the baby been good today?”
“It kicked me. It’ll be six months after the new year…”
Feng Qingtian looked worried. “Time flies, and Xiao Xiao is like this. I’ll find a solution as soon as possible.”
Gu Bailu smiled. “Don’t be scared. Don’t we have the Sky Splitting Mirror? I don’t believe that anything can go wrong during labor.”
“Okay.” Feng Qingtian didn’t say anything else.
He had been checking the historical records to see if there was any solution to her problem.
He had hoped that Xiao Xiao would have a solution, but the pill which Xiao Xiao had given Gu Bailu last time was too strong. For the time being, Xiao Xiao didn’t have another solution.
The pill allowed the baby to absorb all the nutrients and energy in Gu Bailu’s body until it was time to come out.
The pill had a slow-acting effect, and Gu Bailu didn’t feel any discomfort.
But as the baby grew bigger, she would grow weaker.
Feng Qingtian didn’t dare tell Gu Bailu that, afraid that she would be scared and worried. He could only struggle on his own and have people look everywhere for a solution.
Gu Bailu looked at him. “My lord, it seems that Su Shenfan won’t accept the assignment to kiss a sleeping beauty.”
Feng Qingtian hummed in response. If it were him, he wouldn’t agree to it either.
Unless it was Lulu.
Su Shenfan liked beauties, but he was also very picky.
He wouldn’t kiss Bu Yaolian even on pain of death.
“Then, shall we turn Bu Yaolian into a great beauty?” Gu Bailu looked at Feng Qingtian and asked.
Feng Qingtian pinched her face. “How?”
Gu Bailu’s eyes glittered. “Don’t we have the King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers…”
Feng Qingtian raised an eyebrow. “Didn’t you finish it last time?”
“Not yet. I left a bit for emergencies.”
Gu Bailu wanted to give the rest to Bu Yaolian. The King of 9,999 Spring Harbingers was more effective than the 9,999 Spring Harbingers, and could stimulate the production of spiritual power.
 Seventh emperor of the Tang dynasty
