πŸ”žπŸ¦ŠπŸ‰πŸŒΈπŸ’¦ #ZhongChi #鍾タル CW: slight ZhongEi, mpreg, explicit == When Zhongli decided to take Ajax as his new Empress, he was thinking to merely joined their Kingdoms together into a single powerful Empire in northern Teyvat. Until a plot to kill him reached his ears.

The dragon shook his head when he heard it from his eunuch. There's no way Ajax would do such thing after they've been in countless battles and working together for years in installing new governmental systems in their empire. The rumor must be made by his opposition.

But... What if it's true? His long brown tail swipe the wooden floor of his chamber as he walked through his backyard. The dragon later stopped to adore the Dendrobium that danced along the wind on his late Empress' favorite vase. His scaly fingers tenderly touched it's petals

as the memory of his late wife came to his mind, changing his stoic expression into longing as guilt and sadness came to filled his heart. What should I do, Ei? He thought in his mind. The Emperor later resume his walk to the his backyard to had a better view of the bright

starry night above him, while his mind's still thinking about every possibility on that claim. Until he remember about his mother in law. It was Tsaritsa who came to Liyue and endorsed Ajax when the war with Khaenri'ah begin, saying that he needed him and their power to boosted

his power against their advanced tech. Which he did, remembering that Liyue was lack of defense equipments although been known for its' excellent and high standart of military personnels. Both of them instantly clicked on their first meeting, as they have a same background and

interests in creating balance between military and diplomatic approach. With Ajax's wits & supports on the sea, Zhongli could focused his army to attacked the remaining army within his nations and boosts his people spirit to keep fighting with him, resulting many triumphs over

the invading army. Sadly, before he could even introduce him to his late wife that served from her hometown, she died. Words been told that she was ambushed by the enemy's armies and chose to stayed there to distract them while her people were escaping from the island,

leaving her alone in battle as her loyal guard sent to guard the refugees and deliver the news directly to the emperor himself. Once he got there, the only thing he saw was his late Empress cold body among the broken machines and countless shards of her beloved swords.

And when he took her body away, two preterm babies laid beneath layers of broken machinery that crushed her legs. If only Ajax didn't accompanied him, he wouldn't think he could survive all the horrors. The young fox calmed him down,

check on the babies before gave them first aid cares while he watched with arms holding his Ei helplessly. His goldeb eyes were locked on his twins that's quite on the sand, with their chest being pumped and mouth being dried. He was nearly lost all of his hopes if Ajax didn't

flipped one of his children flat in the young fox's arm and rubbed their back, as soon baby cry replaced the rumble of the surf. After that, Zhongli didn't really remember anything but his ceremony with the orange fox. It was modest and short, very much contrast to Tsaritsa's

wish to make it grand by Ajax's request to honour Ei and his boy's passing. Now, it's Ajax who helped him win the war. It's Ajax who has able to save his dying daughter and support his fight for his daughter's right as their heir. And it's Ajax who has been his rock

throughout his political crisis, making it harder to him to believe that his closest friend participated in a plot to end his reign. The fox even suggest him to ignore all of the pressure in having male heir from their council, remembering Yunjin, his daughter, still has her

right to be his successor as his firstborn. No books had ever mentioned any Empress had ever done something like he did, making Zhongli's respect and adoration towards him bigger than before. But now, because of that rumour, Zhongli can't help but to reconsider his thought.

"Huft," Zhongli let out a faint sigh. He has to find away to clear this problem as soon as possible. === "Good morning, Your Majesty." Zhongli smiled at Lumine, one of Ajax's court lady, before he looked close to the closed slide doors. "His Imperial Majesty is here."

Muffled voice heard from the room. "Let him in." And thus, the ladies opened the slide doors to their emperor before gave them a quick bow and closed the door again, living the couple in their private moment. Zhongli walked passed the separator with a purple fox on its golden

paper, making him walked back to adore the painting a little while as a warm feeling roamed in his chest. He kept it, the dragon thought in relief. He then touched the fox painting tenderly with longing in his eyes, before resumed his walk to Ajax's bed.

"Good morning, Your Majesty." Ajax greeted him without getting up from his bed. "I really wish to greet you properly, but as you see, my arms are busy." Zhongli let out a faint chuckles as he laid himself beside his sleeping daughter on Ajax's arms, who's curling her tail on

the young fox's stomach and cheeks wet by tears. "No worries, my friend. Another nightmare?" "... Yes." "I see." Zhongli carefully caressed Yunjin's hair before kissed her cheek. "I'm sorry to disturb you, but I really am hoping that you could join me for dinner tonight."

Ajax looked shocked by his words. His azure eyes widen while locked on Zhongli's eyes, before quickly blinked a few times. "What a coincidence, since I also wanted to asked whether it's fine for me to visit you tonight." "Oh?" "Yes. Since, um." The oranged fox looks hesitant.

"It's okay, my friend, you could tell me everything." Ajax bit his lips with cheeks turned flushed amid the dimmed room, making the dragon across him became more curious. "I.. When, um." "It's okay. You can speak bluntly to me." Zhongli rubbed Ajax's hand on Yunjin's back.

"You're my wife, after all." Ajax quickly looked at him in shock. His rosy cheeks turned redder and he has became more nervous by his words, making the dragon satisfied by his successful teasing. "Well.. It's embarrassing actually, but um." Ajax's ears dropped flat.

"After years of spending my heats alone, I was thinking that maybe.. You could help me?" Zhongli blinked his eyes. Was it a trap? "Oh, my." the dragon act like he's embarrassed. "I'm.. Honoured. And ashamed for not being able to perform my duty as your husband."

"That's okay, my lord. It was me who initiated it, but.." the fox lowered his face to hid his face. "I've been curious about the full experience and.. Now I'm married to you, you're the only one I can trust." Zhongli could see the fox's ears trembled. Is he really being honest?

The dragon observed the fox's gesture closely with eyes narrowed in suspicion. His golden eyes moved to the fox's reddened neck and the trembling tail beneath the blanket, making his doubt gradually faded by the fox's reaction. "... I'll prepare your favourite tea, then."

He said as he smiled warmly. Ajax raised his head to his husband and smiled before nodding shyly. "Thank you, my--" "Can I have some?" Both of them immediately turned their head to the awaken Yunjin below, who's now looking at her parents with her doe scarlet eyes.

Her pointed ears moved as she heard her step mother's heart beat increased, making the little kit giggled. "I'm sorry to scared you, Mam--Your Majesty. But when I heard His Majesty mentioning your favorite tea, I can't help but to be curious." "Oh, sweet little kit, how many

times do I have to tell you to drop those titles when we're all alone?" Ajax pinched Yunjin's nose while the kit giggled gleefully. Zhongli can't help but to smile to see his daughter's bond to Ajax. Deep down, he really wished for Ei to see how strong she have grown,

as his mind projecting Yunjin's fragile figure when in his memory. Her thin limbs have turned firm, her thin skin had glowed, and her red eyes had shown a little glimpse of light golden halos below her scarlet irises. All thanks to Ajax's meticulous care.

Zhongli hold his wife's hand tenderly as he raised from the bed and kissed Yunjin's forehead. "Sorry, my love, but tonight is only for me and your Mama." Yes, tonight we'll be for them only.

No one will leave until Zhongli got the answer he's been looking for. === Faint scent of jasmine tea lingered in the Emperor's grand chamber, as Lumine prepared the tea Zhongli had prepared for tonight's occasion. Both of the royals had changed into their night robe,

with golden dragon pattern on the Emperor's chest and golden phoenix on the Empress'. Zhongli looked closer to his nervous wife across him, who's been avoiding his gaze by looking at their dishes before him. His orange tail swung idly and his cheeks were still flushed like

before. "I've shipped this directly from your hometown." Zhongli said as he corrected his posture. "I really hope you like it, my fr--precious." The blonde court lady stopped her doing while her Empress were frozen by that awful slipped from her Emperor,

before resuming her work like nothing had happened. "T-thank you, my lord." Ajax said quitely. "It's really kind of you." Then silence. The couple was just sat across each other in a heavy awkward atmosphere with no sound or eye contact what so ever, leaving their court lady

work in the middle of their suffocating mood. "... It's been.. Eight years, yes?" Zhongli quitely reopened their conversation. "It must be painful for you to endured it on your own." Ajax slowly shook his head. "It's nothing my lord." "It's not. But worry not, as I'll be--"

Ajax suddenly hissed his tongue as pain hit his body, making the young fox's closed his eyes tight while his hands were holding his clothes. "Your Majesty, are you okay?" Lumine quickly approached her Empress. Seeing a window, Zhongli quickly poured some greenish powder

into one of their cup. His eyes didn't leave his wife's for one second, while his hands came back to his sleeve to hid his ampule. "Don't worry, Lumine. It's just started." Ajax said softly. "I just need to eat and I'll be better soon." "Yes, and tea is perfect for you to ease

the pain." The emperor said calmly. "Let's drink first before we eat. Lady Lumine, you can taste the tea." The blond girl obeyed and drank the tea before bow her head. She later reached for the kettle, before Zhongli raised his hand to stop her. "I'll take it from here. Go."

And she left. Leaving them entirely in the spacious room. Ajax nervously accepted his share from Zhongli's hand and sniffed the tea, enjoying the scent he hasn't taste for awhile. "Was it as how you remember?" Ajax's ears twiched excitedly. "Yes, my lord."

Zhongli nodded his head with a smile on his lips. "Well then. I hope you like it." The orange fox happily brought it to his lips, as the smell has tempted him to chug it up immediately. Until a thin foreign scent stopped his movement in drinking his tea. Making the fox lowered

his hand and looked at his husband's closely. "... My lord?" Zhongli put his empty cup on the table. "Yes?" "I think this tea taste better than yours." Ajax handed his cup to the dragon. "Please try this." Zhongli stared at the full cup silently. His smile still lingered

on his lips, yet his heart had increased its beats. ".... Gladly." And the dragon chug it clean, making the cup hold nothing in it. His golden eyes observed the new reaction from the ginger fox, who's now had turned more calm and poise by his act. He knows, the Emperor thought.

And just before the fox opened his lips, Zhongli immediately kissed him and gave all of his drugged tea to the fox, making the Empress' body flenched in shock and pushed him away to let out all of his drink on the floor. The young fox hurriedly inserted his index finger in hope

he could it threw up, if only the dragon didn't slapped his hand and pinned him on the floor. "You thought I was giving you poison?" Ajax looked at the Emperor in disbelief. His once raised ears had dropped flat as anger filled his eyes and fang appeared from his gum.

"I didn't intended to make it this way." "Really? You should sharpen your calculation after this." Zhongli said coldly as he increased his power. His long tail swung idly as his wife stared at him in annoyance, adding more wounds on his heart by that gesture.

But to his suprise, the fox had successfully threw all of his digestion on their side. Creating a dark red puddle beside them. "Listen to me. I'm not totally lie to you about my heat because my monthly take will start either tomorrow or tonight." Ajax quickly said after catching

his breath. "Second of all, I'm doing this because I want to help you to escape the murder!" "... So you know." "Yes! And I don't want them succeed!" The fox whispered aggressively. "You wanna know what they've been planning to do? Hear this.

Since the day the late Empress passed, my mother has been looking at your throne and scheming to take it over by using your future son after she killed you. I've been holding it by busying myself with our projects-- but now I can't do it anymore because she threatened to replaced

me and if she do that, Yunjin will be in danger!" Zhongli blinked his eyes several time before letting the fox go, inviting several coughs from the fox as he sat on the floor. His golden eyes looked at the fox's trembling body as regret back to fill his chest. "... I'm sorry."

"Urgh," the fox grunts as pain has doubled. His gaze has turned hazzy, making his eyes opened half lidded. "I was hoping.. That we could talk about it in peace. I don't want her in danger yet I don't have anyone to trust but you. That's why I have to act like that."

Zhongli nodded his head and hid the Ajax's vomit by putting a white plain clothe on top of it before look at his trembling wife. Unique sweet scent has started to replaced the tea's, proving that Ajax has telling the truth. The emperor hold his breath and took his wife into

his bed and put him there carefully while the fox huffing in pain. "I'm sorry." The emperor whispered as he help the fox injected his suppressant on his arm, despite not knowing what it was. But when he saw Ajax had turned calmer, Zhongli let out a relieve sigh.

He then kneeled on the floor as he hold Ajax's hands tightly, as overwhelming feelings were flowed in his senses. "Ajax, I didn't know. I'm sorry." "... Yes." Ajax turned his face away. His scent now has nowhere to be found and his trembling body has turned normal.

"As long as Yunjin's safe, I don't mind." Zhongli squeezed Ajax's hand lightly as his mind's still processing all of those information in his head. His thorns darkened as he pressed the fox's back hand on his forehead, trying to release all of his guilt for his previous act.

"Now.. After they've know that we've spend the night, we'll announced fake pregnancy when the timing's right. And after awhile, as we've found the right way to limit my mother's influence in the council, we'll announced that we've loss our child to buy--" "No, that's too risky."

Zhongli brought himself to sit on the edge of the bed. "Even thought I don't have a sharp olfactory like you, I still can tell whether a person's conceiving or not. Once they've found that we lie, it'll not end well for us." Ajax hold his breath when a light pain came back.

"So.. What do you suggest?" Zhongli took a deep breath before looking closely at Ajax. "Actually.. I've been in talks with several lords and ministers to support my upcoming decree regarding Yunjin's right as heir." Ajax let out a relief sigh with a thin smile on his lips,

making Zhongli felt warm by his genuine reaction. "As it's almost done, we'll prepare Yunjin for the ceremony and prepare her properly as heir." "I agree." "... As for you," Zhongli carefully squeezed Ajax's hand again. "If you really want me to, I'll gladly help you

with your heat." "Yes--pardon?" The fox opened his eyes wide as he looked at his husband, who's now looking back at him. "Y-you don't have to, I--" "I've been leaving you in pain while you've been supporting me unconditionally." Zhongli squeezed his hand again.

"At least, even though it's late, let me gave perform my duty as your husband properly." "My lord. Please don't tease me, it's merely a play!" "I can sense that you lied, my dear." The dragon slowly move closer and brought Ajax's hand to his chest.

"You don't have to worry about Yunjin, because in my experience, we won't conceive a child unless both of us entered the same heat cycle. Not only this could ease your pain after this effect gone, you could also send a message to your mother through it." Zhongli carefully kissed

Ajax's knuckles while the fox's still blanked in his mind. "I believe she has kept many birds to sing their songs about you in here. And if we--" "But how about you, my lord?" Ajax asked in whisper. "Do you really mean it?" "... I am." Zhongli said firmly. "If you allow me."

Ajax could felt his heart full when he heard the dragon said it. His eyes dazzled by excitement as his ears raised back, making the emperor before him smiled happily. Before the fox could make another sound, the dragon brought himself closer to Ajax and cupped his left cheek,

making the fox hold his breath by the decreasing distance between them. Both of their gazes locked on each other lips as their surrounding turned silent, making the couple moved closer by instinct. Finally, with a slight tilt on his head, the Emperor kissed his Empress.

The orange haired fox melted by that tender kiss. His previous heavy body had turned into light, making him felt like floating in the air. He then could felt both of his hands being brought to each sides of his head with fingers intertwined with Zhongli's as kisses still landed

on his lips, making him forgetting anything that had happened before this. "Umm," the fox flenched his body when the dragon's tail wrapped his own as Zhongli end their kiss. Their chest puffed heavy and their eyes were opened half lidded with flushed cheeks underneath.

Ajax later closed his eyes again when Zhongli left a peck on his cheek and caressed his cheeks with his thumbs. Those azure eyes looked at his Emperor with pure adoration, as the man he loves has looked at him the same way. "A compensate for my act from before."

Ajax shyly laughed by his words and closed his eyes again as their lips met again. This time it's no longer stiff and awkward, as Zhongli has guided his hand to round around his neck and pinned him on the bed. "... I," Zhongli looked at the fox ad he untied Ajax's undergarments.

"I may not.. fitting your preferences, my lord." Ajax braved himself to rubbed Zhongli's nape with his fingers. "But in this very moment, please know that my heart, body, and soul are belongs to you." Zhongli blinked his eyes in awe when the fox's words have reached the deepest

place in his heart. He then brushed those orange hair strains and gave the fox another kiss as joy warmed his body. But is it fair for him to feel this way? Ajax has gave him nothing but everything. His time, his wit, his bravery , and now wholeheartedly himself.

He has love his daughter and tirelessly fight for her. Ignoring the fact she's the only Ei's legacy that he had left. He didn't care whether she's his blood and flesh or not. He didn't care whether she resemblance him or not. He loves Yunjin, and also he loves him.

Zhongli rubbed his nose on Ajax's crook of his head, inhaling his leaking pheromones as the suppressant has lost its power. Making Ajax continued to hissed in pain. "I'm glad to have you, my dear." the fox squirmed beneath him as discomfort slowly took over his body.

But when the dragon looked at him with a gaze he never saw, the fox could felt those pain drifted away in a brief seconds. "History may have not written my tenure and deeds yet. But I know, now that I have you, both of the greatness of me and our empire begin with you."

The fox's ears twitched as Ajax felt jubilant to heard his Emperor's words. His blue eyes turned crescent as shy laughter sung from his lips, before a quite sob replaced it as he hid his face on Zhongli's chest. The dragon quickly wrapped his body with his sturdy arms and kissed

his hair lovingly as he coaxed his wife to calm, inviting louder sobs from the young man in his arms. "Thank you, my lord." "No, my love. Thank you." the dragon pressed his Empress' head to nuzzled on his neck. "Call me by my name." The fox let his husband wiped the tears

on his eyes with his dark fingers while he tried to controlled his breathing. His lips trembled as his mind kept whispering that sacred name. Not sure whether it's fine for him to say it. His azure eyes looked at those glowing golden irises that soften as their gaze met,

sending endless waves of thrill as he's captivated by the Emperor's gesture. Ajax leaned on Zhongli's hand that cupped his cheek and hold his wrist, absorbing his warmth and converted it as his strength to resist the pain in his senses. As he had felt his confident,

the young fox looked at his husband fondly and said, "Zhongli." "Yes, my love." "Zhongli," Ajax said it again as the dragon pulled his undergarments away, exposing his upper body to the golden eyes as his hand guided to undress the dragon. "Zhongli.. Zhongli.."
