Cheng Xia’s estrus lasted a whole week. Pei Shaoze had taken care of him carefully and tenderly. The beautiful island became their intimate place without any outsiders disturbing them. Cheng Xia listened to the sound of the waves while falling asleep in Pei Shaoze’s arms every day. Under the influence of the pheromones, his mind was always confused. He thought in a daze that he would never be tired of being with Brother Pei like this.
It wasn’t until seven days passed that Cheng Xia finally regained his energy.
After being marked again, his body was full of the smell of Pei Shaoze’s pheromones. Cheng Xia no longer used orange perfume to cover up the smell. He and Pei Shaoze had a public wedding and everyone knew they were a couple. It was normal for him to have the smell of his alpha on his body.
Cheng Xia stared out the window and was excited. “The weather is so good today. Can we go out for a stroll?”
During this period of time, he almost never left the villa and he was suffocating. Pei Shaoze knew he wanted to play so they changed clothes and went to the beach. In order to prevent Cheng Xia from getting sunburned, Pei Shaoze thoughtfully prepared sunscreen for him to apply and rented a parasol.
The two of them sat under the parasol with the sea breeze blowing, watching the sea in a very comfortable mood. Cheng Xia stared at the sea in a daze. His estrus had lasted seven days. According to his knowledge of physiology, omegas had a 90% probability of getting pregnant in this special period. If this was the case, wasn’t their baby already formed?
Pei Shaoze saw that Cheng Xia was in a daze and pulled this person into his arms, whispering, “What are you thinking?”
Cheng Xia returned to his senses and spoke seriously, “I’m thinking that if we really have a child, I hope he looks like you and has a personality like you, growing up to become a fine alpha.”
Pei Shaoze smiled and said softly, “I think one that looks like you is cuter.”
Cheng Xia hurriedly shook his head. “No, I was very naughty as a child and often fought against alphas. My parents couldn’t control me.”
Pei Shaoze thought of a little Cheng Xia rolling up his sleeves to fight with others and still felt it was very cute. “That’s not bad. It’s better for children to be lively, unlike me who was bored as a child and had few friends around.”
Cheng Xia didn’t know about Pei Shaoze’s childhood and couldn’t help wondering, “What did you do when you were young?”
Pei Shaoze thought about it. “Most of the time, I did homework.”
Cheng Xia, “……”
Wasn’t this really lonely? Cheng Xia gently held Pei Shaoze’s hand. “There is me in the future and you won’t be alone.”
Pei Shaoze’s heart warmed as he held Cheng Xia’s hand tightly.
The one-month honeymoon period passed quickly. Cheng Xia might be full of reluctance but he returned to Rong City on time with Pei Shaoze.
Zhou Yan knew that Cheng Xia and President Pei just got married publicly and would be stuck together like glue, so she pushed off all the recent unimportant jobs leaving only some relatively simple interviews, magazine photos, etc. Therefore, Cheng Xia’s work was very easy after returning to Rong City. Every night, he could get back to the Binjiang Villa and meet Pei Shaoze who went home after getting off work.
The two men were like ordinary husbands. They were busy during the day and went home to eat, chat and watch TV at night.
It was soon the end of April. A month had passed since the honeymoon period. Cheng Xia went to the hospital for an examination in a nervous mood, personally accompanied by Pei Shaoze.
Qin Yu took Cheng Xia to the examination room and asked Pei Shaoze to wait outside. Pei Shaoze stood in the corridor anxiously waiting for the result. His mood at the moment was even more nervous than when doing the university entrance examination. In the past, his mind was all about his career. Now with Cheng Xia, he suddenly felt it was good to have a child. The child who was the crystallization of his love for Cheng Xia might inherit Cheng Xia’s features and personality, right?
At that time, there would be a miniature orange following him and calling him ‘Dad’ in a soft voice. Pei Shaoze’s entire heart softened when he thought of this scene. If Cheng Xia was pregnant then Pei Shaoze would not only protect Cheng Xia but also their child.
Pei Shaoze waited in the corridor for a long time before Cheng Xia came out with the report. Cheng Xia lowered his head and his expression didn’t look too good. Pei Shaoze’s heart jumped. He thought that Cheng Xia wasn’t pregnant this time so he came forward and gently held Cheng Xia’s hand. “It doesn’t matter. Having a child depends on fate. Maybe the baby just isn’t ready to come to us.”
Cheng Xia looked at him with a red face. “Brother Pei, we’re going to have a baby but…”
Pei Shaoze was stunned. “But what?”
Cheng Xia was a bit embarrassed. “It’s twins. We will have two babies.”
Pei Shaoze, “……”
Qin Yu couldn’t help laughing from beside them. He walked over and patted Pei Shaoze on the shoulder. “Neither one of your families has the twins gene. You can actually get Cheng Xia pregnant at once with two babies. Buddy, you’re awesome.”
Pei Shaoze coughed awkwardly. He had worked hard this time but he didn’t expect… his efforts resulted in two.
Pei Shaoze took Cheng Xia’s hand and sat down to read the examination report.
It was really two children. On the four-dimensional image, two small shadows were stuck together, their facial features and body unable to be seen clearly. Was this their children? Pei Shaoze’s heart trembled as he felt the Creator was truly magical. He had been intimate with a man on the island for a week and the other person was actually pregnant with his children…
After accepting this setting, warm happiness surged in his heart. Pei Shaoze’s eyes were full of warmth and he hugged Cheng Xia in his arms while feeling distressed. “Won’t you have a hard time with twins?”
“Don’t worry, I’m in good health.” Cheng Xia couldn’t help letting out a complaint. “It must be because I wanted a baby like Brother Pei while you wanted a baby like me. God felt we were both so troublesome that he gave us two at the same time.”
“……” Qin Yu laughed from beside them. “Cheng Xia’s theory really makes sense!”
Pei Shaoze gazed helplessly at Cheng Xia. His lover really had strange brain circuits.
Qin Yu said, “Right, I have just explained the process to Cheng Xia and I’ll tell you again. Twins have a heavier burden than one child. Shaoze, you should take good care of Cheng Xia and don’t do too strenuous exercise during pregnancy. Have regular checks and come to the hospital whenever Cheng Xia feels uncomfortable, got it?”
Pei Shaoze nodded cautiously. “I understand.”
That evening, Pei Shaoze told their families the good news. Before his parents could get excited, Pei Shaoyan jumped up with joy. “I have a nephew… or two nephews! Hahaha, from now on, I will hold both in one hand and take them to the playground!”
Pei Shaoze and Cheng Xia exchanged looks with a smile. The children should be very happy playing with their uncle.
They went home in the evening. Cheng Xia wanted to go up the stairs but Pei Shaoze directly picked him up. Cheng Xia couldn’t help saying, “There’s no need to be so exaggerated. I can walk…”
Pei Shaoze told him, “I just want to carry you.”
Back in the bedroom, he gently placed Cheng Xia on the bed and poured a glass of warm water for him. The two of them cuddled together. A moment later, Cheng Xia mentioned, “By the way, the drama I accepted last year will officially start shooting in July.”
Pei Shaoze remembered it. “Is it the workplace drama?”
Cheng Xia nodded. “Yes, you have invested as well. The crew is ready. As the main character, I can’t delay things. This is why I wanted to talk to you. I might be pregnant but I want to finish the drama.”
Pei Shaoze frowned. “Will you be okay?”
Cheng Xia immediately reassured him. “No problem. In July, the babies will be three months and they will be stable. This modern workplace drama tells the story of an omega’s struggles in the workplace and I really want to act in it. I’ve read the script and there are no action scenes. Most of it is related to the lines and there should be no impact on the babies.”
Pei Shaoze was silent for a moment before nodding. “Okay. I will follow the crew the entire time and take care of you personally.”
It was Shu Yue’s choice to retire when he got pregnant. Pei Shaoze didn’t want Cheng Xia to give up on his career for the sake of children. In addition, the contract had been signed a long time ago. Cheng Xia would definitely feel sorry if he alone affected the entire crew. Cheng Xia had always been a dedicated actor. Now he had taken the double awards and his popularity was extremely high. He had always been serious about his work and there was no need to give up everything for children.
During pregnancy, he couldn’t exercise vigorously. After that, Pei Shaoze was very restrained. He also gave most of his work to his Vice Presidents and freed up more time to take care of Cheng Xia.
The new drama was officially launched in July and Pei Shaoze personally joined the production team. He asked the crew to arrange a suite for him and Cheng Xia. Every night when Cheng Xia came back from filming, Pei Shaoze would gently help squeeze Cheng Xia’s shoulders and massage his waist and calves.
Cheng Xia was thin and it was hard to tell he was pregnant. The crew didn’t know about the pregnancy. This drama was an urban workplace drama and there were no fierce action scenes. In addition, Pei Shaoze talked to the director privately and told the director not to make the schedule too full. The director only scheduled Cheng Xia for a few scenes a day. Therefore, Cheng Xia was very relaxed when filming.
After returning to the hotel in the evening, Cheng Xia would lean against his alpha’s chest and watch a cozy movie or discuss the babies. Cheng Xia asked, “Brother Pei, what do you want to name our children?”
Since secretly liking Pei Shaoze a long time ago, Cheng Xia had thought about the child’s name and even what kindergarten the child would go to. He was too embarrassed to say this so he directly asked Pei Shaoze for his opinion.
Pei Shaoze wondered softly, “What name do you like?”
Cheng Xia blushed. “How about Pei Xiaoyuan for a boy and Pei Xiaofang for a girl? Cough cough, it doesn’t sound very nice.”
Pei Shaoze, “……”
A circle and a square, Cheng Xia’s imagination was really powerful. (Yuan=circle, Fang=square)
Pei Shaoze suppressed his desire to laugh and rubbed Cheng Xia’s head. Cheng Xia might be pregnant but Pei Shaoze couldn’t help petting him like a child. His eyes were full of gentleness as he stared into Cheng Xia’s eyes. “I have an idea. It’s very hard for you to carry twins. Once the time comes, one baby can have my surname and one can have yours.”
Cheng Xia was stunned. “Ah, this… is it okay?”
“It’s very good. I will tell my parents in advance. The child belongs to both of us. It doesn’t make sense for them to just have my last name.”
Cheng Xia’s heart warmed and he gently nodded. “Brother Pei, it’s up to you.”
Pei Shaoze added, “As for the name, I thought of a pair.”
He took out the hotel’s guest book and used the attached black pen to write two names on the paper.
Pei Niancheng and Cheng Yize. (The ‘ze’ is the same character used in Pei Shaoze’s name while the ‘Cheng’ used means orange, which is different from the character in Cheng Xia’s name but Pei Shaoze often thinks of him as an orange in relation to him)
Pei Shaoze finished writing and added, “If it’s a girl then call her Pei Niancheng. If it’s a boy then call him Pei Niancheng (this time, the Cheng from Cheng Xia’s name). Regardless of gender, the name Cheng Yize can be used.”
Cheng Xia’s face slightly reddened. “Isn’t this… too much of a show of affection?”
Even the babies’ names were full of love.
Pei Shaoze said, “Their nicknames can be Da Cheng and Xiao Cheng based on the order in which they are born. What do you think?” (Big orange and little orange)
Cheng Xia thought about it. It was better than the Xiaofang and Xiaoyuan he picked so he nodded in agreement. “Let’s do it! Niancheng and Yize, they are our children!”
After filming the workplace drama, Cheng Xia completely took a vacation at home to rest. Time passed and his body was indeed no longer suitable for work. Pei Shaoze also took time off to care for him at home.
In December, Cheng Xia was sent to the Binjiang Private Hospital where Qin Yu was located. It was originally supposed to be at the end of December but as a result, Cheng Xia was rushed to the operating room on December 24th. After receiving the news, Pei Shaoze drove to the hospital and stood in the corridor, his forehead covered in sweat.
His heart seemed to be strangled by a rope and hung in the air. His favorite person had been pushed into the operating room. He was really afraid of Cheng Xia getting into an accident because he wouldn’t be able to bear the consequences.
A short hour that felt as long as a century passed.
Then the door of the operating room was pushed open and there was the loud sound of a baby crying in the room. Pei Shaoze sighed with relief and quickly stepped forward to hold Cheng Xia’s hand, his voice trembling. “Are you okay?”
Cheng Xia was pale but there was joy in his eyes. “I’m fine. The two little ones are anxious to see you.”
Pei Shaoze sent Cheng Xia back to the ward in person. Then the nurse showed them the two children. “It’s a boy and a girl. The boy came out first.”
Cheng Xia was very happy. “They are brother and sister! The brother is Da Cheng and the sister is Xiao Cheng.”
The two children were crying so hard that it almost broke their eardrums. They seemed very well-developed. Pei Shaoze reached out to take the children from the nurse. Perhaps they were afraid of their father’s magnificence but the two little ones calmed down immediately, both curiously opening their eyes to look at Pei Shaoze. The daughter also carefully touched Pei Shaoze’s finger with her little fleshy hand.
Pei Shaoze’s heart softened and he took the two children to the bed to show Cheng Xia. The alpha’s big hand gently held Cheng Xia’s hand. In the palm of Cheng Xia’s other hand was a baby’s fleshy small hand.
The four people’s hands were stacked together and the picture was incredibly warm and harmonious.
Pei Shaoze learned over and kissed Cheng Xia’s forehead. From now on, the people he wanted to protect had increased from Cheng Xia and had two more little babies. He would try to be a good father.
