When she heard this, Feng Jiu couldn’t help but smile: “You aren’t considered a man yet, you’re just a little boy.” When she finished speaking, she saw that he was sulking again. He looked exactly like Hell’s Lord and she couldn’t help but reached out to touch his cheeks.
“Little rascal, you are always sulking, aren’t you afraid that you will age faster?” However she was secretly smiling on the inside. She didn’t dare touch Hell’s Lord’s face, but she had no problem touching the little rascal’s face.
He removed her hand and said: “Don’t rub my face.”
“Today is the fifteenth, it’s Lantern Festival. We shall go to the palace for a meal and then I will take you for a walk around the Lantern Festival, how about that?” She asked with a smile as she looked at the proud little guy in her arms.
“Okay.” He replied, somewhat happy.
In the evening, they headed to the palace. As Su Xi was still in her confinement period and unable to go out, they had a simple reunion dinner and played with the baby for a while before they left.
On this Lantern Festival night, the streets of the city were lined with various coloured lanterns. You could also guess riddles and set off fireworks, there was joy everywhere.
They looked at all the different lanterns with him walking next to Feng Jiu. His eyes wavered slightly and he came to stop by some lanterns. He looked at them all and finally, his gaze finally landed on a lotus flower lantern. He looked at the puzzle below and said to the street hawker: “Take this one down.”
“Oh little boy, if you can guess the riddle, the lantern is free, if you can’t guess the riddle, you have to pay for it.” The hawker said with a smile and took the lotus flower lantern down, he said: “Little mister, the riddle on this lotus flower lantern is: it is red on one side, green on one side, happy wind on one side, happy rain on one side, guess one word.”
“Autumn.” Little Hell’s Lord answered and reached out his hands: “Give it to me.”
The smile on the hawker’s face froze and he looked at the riddle answer before handing the lantern over to him. He smiled as he said: “Little mister is so smart, you guessed it immediately, you’re correct, the riddle answer is autumn. The lotus flower lantern is yours.”
“Do you like this?” Feng Jiu walked over and also picked up a lantern, hers was a fish shaped lantern: “I thought you would like this one.” She waved the lantern in her hands and passed it over to him.
He glanced at it before he took the lantern. As he took the lantern from her, he also passed her the lotus flower lantern and said: “It’s for you.”
She smiled with surprise and was somewhat pleased: “Thank you.”
When he saw her happy face, his eyes widened slightly as he tried hard to maintain a cool expression. However, the corners of his lips couldn’t help but curled up slightly and revealed his cheerful mood.
“What other lantern do you want? I will give it to you.” He held the fish shaped lantern she passed to him in his hands and looked up at her with a look of confidence that he would be able to get it as long as she liked it.
“One lantern is enough, let’s go! Let’s go to the front and eat some mini dumplings.” She smiled as she held the lantern in one hand and his hand in the other.
The two of them walked to the stall at the front to eat mini dumplings and squeezed with the crowd on the streets to watch the performances on the street. Finally, they watched the fireworks. It was midnight by the time they returned to the residence to rest.
After his bath, Little Hell’s Lord laid on his bed and looked at the woman stood by the window looking outside at some faraway place and asked: “What are you looking at?”
“It’s the fifteenth tonight, I’m wondering if his frost poison is acting up?”
