248 This Is a Malicious World

“It was supposed to come a few days ago.”

The chief doctor, however, wasn’t certain, because the days were too short.

Feng Qingtian asked coldly, “What exactly is this about? How is her body?”

He was concerned about how solemn the chief doctor was. He hoped that nothing was wrong with her body.

He didn’t want to lose her.

“I… I’m not sure. The princess seems to be pregnant, but it’s too soon for me to reach a conclusion,” the chief doctor admitted.

Gu Bailu was secretly delighted. It worked!

She would see if Feng Qingtian would touch her again during her false pregnancy.

However, Feng Qingtian responded gloomily, “It’s impossible.”

Gu Bailu frowned at him. “Just tell me if you don’t want to see me pregnant.”

She had finally figured out a way, yet he wasn’t cooperating.

They had slept together quite a few times. Pregnancy wasn’t entirely unlikely.

“I didn’t finish last time,” Feng Qingtian said casually.

Gu Bailu was of a mind to choke him. Hadn’t he been a virgin for hundreds of years? Why would he know something like that so well?

The chief doctor asked awkwardly, “What do you mean by… ‘didn’t finish’? I need to know how far you got to be certain if it can lead to pregnancy…”

Gu Bailu blushed. It was embarrassing to be asked such a question.

Feng Qingtian looked at her and pulled her into his arms, hiding her face from the chief doctor.

She heard Feng Qingtian’s calm voice. “I was almost there before I passed out.”

“That doesn’t mean pregnancy is impossible. Actually, conception may happen at any time during the whole process; it’s just that the odds are lower.”

Feng Qingtian glanced at him. “I told you that she can’t be pregnant. Go back to your mountain and study more if you can’t see the reason why.”

The chief doctor knelt in fear. “I… I’m too incompetent… The princess’s pulse is too chaotic…”

“Why are you so mean? He said that it was possible. Why are you sure it’s impossible?”

The trap was set, but Feng Qingtian didn’t step into it. How could she allow that?

Feng Qingtian stroked her hair gently. “Do you want to get pregnant?”

Gu Bailu nodded. “Of course. I don’t intend to marry anybody else. My child will support me in the future if I have any.”

Gu Bailu lied without blushing.

Guilt flashed in Feng Qingtian’s eyes. “I’m sorry. I controlled myself the last few times to make sure that you wouldn’t get pregnant. You’ll have babies if you want. I tried really hard last night. Let’s continue today.”

“What… what do you mean?” Gu Bailu was stunned.

Could that really be controlled?

“To prevent the bloodline from being messed up, the royal family has an art that can prevent conception no matter how much sex they have.”

Gu Bailu went mad. “There’s such an art?”

The chief doctor hurried to explain, “Yes, the art ensures that Prince Zi is infertile during the process.”

Gu Bailu realized that it probably killed Feng Qingtian’s sperm before they came out.

So, conception was impossible.

That was a rather advanced art for such an era!

Her plan had failed!

“I was wrong. I’ll try harder to give you a baby.” Feng Qingtian touched her abdomen regretfully.
