Pulling back his thoughts, Zhao Lingyu hugged Ren Sheng. “Ren, thank you.”
“Why do you say thank you?” Ren Sheng was a little confused
“Thank you for giving me four children.” Zhao Lingyu said.
“I gave birth to them for myself. You don’t have to thank me.” Ren Sheng patted himself on the chest.
There was a smile on Zhao Lingyu’s face and at the same time, he couldn’t help touching Ren Sheng’s face. Ren Sheng was pregnant and everyone thought he had done some ‘beastly’ things to him. Should he make it a fact?
Thinking of this, Zhao Lingyu’s body couldn’t help becoming hot, but seeing Ren Sheng’s dark and simple eyes, he felt like a basin of cold water was poured on him.
Ren Sheng’s attention had already shifted to the four eggs. After they entered the room, the four eggs popped up on top of the golden crystals, looking very well-behaved.
“They really like this thing.” Ren Sheng couldn’t help saying.
Zhao Lingyu used the hyperwave device to shine onto a few of the eggs, and saw that the face of the children were full of satisfaction. Then he turned the device to the other two children and also found that they had the same expression. “This should be useful for them.”
“I thought so too.” Ren Sheng nodded. “But Auntie said to put them in the incubator.”
“Then let’s put some crystals in the incubator?” Zhao Lingyu quickly got an idea.
“Good.” Ren Sheng nodded, took out the cushion from the incubator, tore it open without hesitation, and then looked at Zhao Lingyu: “Break this crystal stone quickly, and then we will put it in.”
Ren Sheng and Zhao Lingyu worked together and quickly replaced the cushions in the four incubators with broken pieces of crystal. At this time, the eggs were finally willing to stay inside.
“Would you like to make a cushion for you too? Or carry a few pieces on your body?” Thinking of Ren Sheng’s love for this kind of crystal stone before, Zhao Lingyu asked.
“I can’t absorb the energy inside, it’s useless for me even if I want to.” Ren Sheng said.
“You can’t absorb the energy inside?” Zhao Lingyu asked curiously.
“Yes, what’s wrong?”
“Nothing.” Zhao Lingyu hugged Ren Sheng and gave him a kiss on his cheek. “Let’s go to bed early.”
Ren Sheng went straight into Zhao Lingyu’s arms.
Shen Qiushi didn’t sleep all night and early in the morning, she started wandering outside Zhao Lingyu’s room.
“What are you doing up so early?” Zhao Peng looked at his wife speechlessly.
“Don’t I have a lot of things to discuss with our son here? Your son even turned off his communicator; he is too irresponsible!” Shen Qiushi wanted to call her son up last night to discuss the marriage, but couldn’t contact Zhao Lingyu.
Of course, she could knock on the door, but Ren Sheng just gave birth to the children. If she knocked on his door in the middle of night, wouldn’t she become an evil mother-in-law?
“…” Zhao Peng suddenly hugged his wife. “I don’t think they will get up early today, so why don’t we go and discuss the true meaning of life first.”
“You old rascal!” Shen Qiushi’s face became flushed.
“I’m not old now.” Zhao Peng smiled. He had been powerless for decades, but now he could finally make up for it.
Zhao Peng was right. Zhao Lingyu and Ren Sheng got up very late. Zhao Lingyu got up late because he couldn’t fall asleep last night and paid attention to the four incubators around him. As for Ren Sheng… Waking up and finding he was held by Zha Lingyu, he happily closed his eyes again.
When the Zhao family finally got together, it was time to eat lunch.
Shen Qiushi, who hadn’t slept all night and had done “strenuous exercise” in the morning, quickly swept up the food in front of her and asked, “When are you going to get married?”
“The sooner the better.” Zhao Lingyu said. Although the children came somewhat unexpectedly, it was his beloved person who gave birth to his children, so naturally he wanted to marry quickly.
“Good, five days later is a good day! Or else ten days later!” Shen Qiushi immediately took out a piece of paper, on which was written all the auspicious days within the month, as for a month later … how can her son’s marriage wait that long?
“Five days later.” Zhao Lingyu said without hesitation.
Elder Teng, as a permanent resident of the Zhao family, also sat at the table. Hearing this, he immediately looked at Ren Sheng. “Master, what is your opinion? Isn’t five days too fast?”
“In fact, it doesn’t necessarily have to be an auspicious day.” Ren Sheng smiled towards Shen Qiushi, tomorrow was also fine!
Elder Teng who originally wanted his master to think more about it silently shut his mouth.
The old housekeeper looked at this happy scene and was very pleased. When everyone finished their lunch, he happily stepped forward and lightly recounted the situation outside. “Master, young master, most of the people who came to the banquet yesterday didn’t leave. Today, there are still hundreds of aircrafts gathered over the island. Some of the people who visited want to ask for a Nourishing Potion.”
“I know.” Zhao Lingyu said, while looking at his father. He was getting married in five days, so he didn’t have time to meet these people and now that his father was back, he couldn’t rob his dad off his job.
Zhao Peng saw Zhao Lingyu’s expression and sensed his son’s thoughts. The corners of his mouth twitched slightly. “I don’t know much about Capital Star right now…”
“Since you don’t know, it’s even more of a reason why you should go. You can quickly send those people away.” Shen Qiushi said to her husband and then looked at her son. ‘Lingyu, you can accompany Ren to rest and the children can stay here.”
“I don’t need to rest.” Ren Sheng shook his head. Without the children, his whole body was much more relaxed and his spiritual energy was still unusually abundant.
Shen Qiushi wanted to tell Ren Sheng not to be brave, but suddenly thought of what Yuan Xingdong said yesterday about Ren Sheng being very healthy, so she didn’t insist. “Then we’ll watch the baby together and let Lingyu go help his dad with the people outside.”
“Good.” Ren Sheng nodded. He never took his fruit seriously before, but this time was different. He especially liked the four little ones.
Zhao father and son were mercilessly ‘kicked out,’ while the four incubators were moved inside.
The four eggs stayed very quietly in their respective incubators, not moving at all, while outside the incubators, the weight and diameter of the eggs were displayed.
Shen Qiushi looked at her grandson with great affection, almost seeing the eggs as flowers, but Ren Sheng was even more daring. He directly lifted the lid of an incubator and then took out one of the eggs inside with the mat.
“Ren, all these children have to stay in the incubator at a constant temperature.” Shen Qiushi hurriedly tried to stop him.
“Auntie, they are not so delicate.” Ren Sheng said, Shen Qiushi and others treated his fruit like they were fragile, but he knew very well that they were all very strong.
Although these children were not yet developed, their energy fluctuations have already surpassed Feng Kexin.
Shen Qiushi looked at the eggs in Ren Sheng’s hand and took out the inspection device to check them carefully. Finally, she had to admit that Ren Sheng was right. The eggs were not as fragile as they seemed. “Then can I hold one too?”
“Of course you can.” Ren Sheng nodded. “But you must hold it together with the mat underneath.” If there was no cushion made of this crystal, these little guys would definitely jump into his arms and not leave.
Ren Sheng hugged an egg and Shen Quishi also held one. While Feng Kexin and Elder Teng also hugged one each.
“Ren, you’re really powerful. You can actually lay four at once, but although these eggs are small, the four of them together are not so small in size. How come I didn’t notice any change in your body size before?” Shen Qiushi’s expression showed a slight puzzlement.
That’s because they grew on his head… Ren Sheng was wondering how to answer Shen Qiushi’s question when Feng Kexin suddenly gave a light ‘Huh’ sound.
“Kexin, what’s wrong?” Shen Qiushi asked, puzzled.
“Qiushi, although I have been taking Nourishing Potions, I always feel that I have no strength and limited powers these days, but now I suddenly feel very comfortable… This egg is amazing.” Feng Kexin said. The pregnancy was very hard for her. Although Shen Qiushi helped her to keep the baby, she still felt some discomfort. But now, holding the egg in her arms, the uncomfortable feeling suddenly disappeared.
“I also feel a little like this and now my whole body feels very comfortable.” Elder Teng also said.
“There is such a thing?” Shen Qiushi felt it carefully, and only after a while did she frown slightly. “I feel a smooth force, which seems to be integrating into my ability.”
Ren Sheng didn’t feel anything at all, so at first when Feng Kexin mentioned this, he thought it was because his egg was full of spiritual power. But now, he found that something was wrong. This smooth energy… was it because of the golden crystals?
“Is what you guys said true?” Zhao Lingyu walked in quickly from outside, his eyebrows slightly wrinkled.
“Of course it’s true.” Shen Qiushi said.
“Is it because of this?” Zhao Lingyu pondered a little and turned out the egg in Shen Qiushi atm and gave her a piece of gold crystal.
“I don’t feel anything special about this stone.” Shen Qiushi picked up the golden crystals and didn’t feel what she felt before.
“Mother, try using your ability.” Zhao Lingyu said.
“Alright.” Shen Qiushi nodded and then showed a surprised expression. “The energy in this gold crystal can be absorbed by ability users.” After using her ability, she always had to wait to recover slowly, but now, she could absorb energy from this crystal!
Zhao Lingyu looked at the crystal stone in her hand in silence, his gaze changing again and again.
For this kind of crystal, he always thought that Ren Sheng needed it, but he didn’t think much about it. As a result, Ren Sheng didn’t need the crystal at all… it was his children who needed it.
Half of their children came from Ren Sheng, so it was normal that they needed spiritual power, but how could they need this kind of crystal?
Last night, Zhao Lingyu had a vague suspicion that this crystal should be related to abilities, but now he was completely sure.
Ren Sheng was not an ability user and his ability was no longer working, so neither of them could absorb energy from the crystal ore, but it was useful for Shen Qiushi and others.
Of course, if you don’t take the initiative to use your ability, the crystal didn’t give you any special feelings. Feng Kexin and the others felt comfortable while holding the crystal, probably only because his children were absorbing the energy from the crystal and let some of the energy escape.
No wonder the Star Pirates would want to take away the crystals. He didn’t know what kind of changes these crystal stones will bring to their children… Zhao Lingyu suddenly remembered what he encountered after he went out just now.
When he went out this time, he originally intended to announce that he was going to get married and then explain that the Nourishing Potion will be sold after his marriage and then immediately return to accompany Ren Sheng and the child, but didn’t expect to be called by Yuan Xingdong.
Yuan Xingdong stopped him and even told him that although his child hadn’t yet been born, their abilities were already stronger than when he was just born.
As soon as he was born, he was detected to be an S-class ability user and was among the best in the Human Federation. But his children were stronger than him…
Was this caused by these crystals?
