In the hallway, the video call continued.

Ling Changfeng didn’t want tonight’s conversation to end with such an awkward atmosphere, so he slowed his tone and tried to find some light topics to chat about.
“What did you have for dinner?”

“Some local specialties at the Linjiang Pavilion.
Among the dishes, there is a chicken stew with mushrooms that is particularly delicious.
I also studied the recipe, and can make it for you when I go back.” Xu Xinghe said.

Ling Changfeng’s eyes flashed slightly.
Although he had never been interested in eating, he was easily satisfied at this moment: “Okay.”

As soon as he finished speaking, he suddenly remembered something, his eyes moved slightly, and he asked Xu Xinghe, “Did you drink?”

Although his tone was quite calm, and he didn’t mean to seek guilt,, Xu Xinghe immediately denied it: “No!”

After a while, he added: “They drank, I didn’t.”

Ling Changfeng lips curled into a faint, fleeting smile, before he opened his mouth to ask, “How was your time in Nanga today? Are you happy?”

“Happy! It’s hard to see so much snow in Nebula City.
We had a snowball fight by the river in the afternoon, and it was very enjoyable.” When he mentioned this, Xu Xinghe regained his energy, stretched out his hand and gestured: “I didn’t want to join at first, but the scene became more and more chaotic.
I was accidentally hit by someone’s snowball, so I fought with them…”

Ling Changfeng looked at Xu Xinghe’s hands and feet as he described the snowball fight.
All he could imagine is how cute his little spouse is in the snow.

Like a little hedgehog rolling around in the snow, he shook his head to shake off the snow.

Thinking of these pictures, his eyes involuntarily softened.

It was not until Xu Xinghe finished the whole snowball fight vividly that Ling Changfeng nodded and said, “If you like snow, we can often travel to places with snow in the future.”

Xu Xinghe was chatting happily, but did not notice Ling Changfeng’s voice was a little softer than before.
He didn’t delve into what the word “later” meant, and nodded readily: “Okay!”

Marshal Ling felt relieved and said, “It’s getting late, you should rest early.”

“Yeah.” Xu Xinghe nodded.
“You also rest early.”

“Good night.” Before hanging up the video, Ling Changfeng spoke again.
His gentle, soft tone was something Xu Xinghe could also perceive.

The young man who had been running around for a day restrained a yawn, and then replied after a moment, “Good night.”

When Xu Xinghe opened the door and entered the room, he vaguely heard faint whispering in the bedroom.

But as soon as he entered the bedroom, the chatter inside stopped abruptly.

The whole room fell silent.

A group of people sat together, keeping their bodies lowered and whispered.
As Xu Xinghe pushed in the door, everyone raised their heads suddenly, and looked at him collectively.

Xu Xinghe: “…”

He was a little uncomfortable facing the group stares.
Swallowing, he asked, “Why are you looking at me?”

“Team leader, your video call is over?” Ryan asked cautiously.

Xu Xinghe touched his nose: “It’s over.
What about it? We have to climb the snow-capped mountains tomorrow, everyone should go back to sleep early.
We can play cards when we come back tomorrow…”

As soon as he finished speaking, Ryan suddenly reacted, trembling as he shook his head like a rattle.
“No more, no more! No more tomorrow!”

The people around also echoed: “It’s so late, we won’t disturb Team Leader Xu, we will withdraw immediately!”

They fled faster than rabbits.

In the blink of an eye, only Xu Xinghe was left.

Xu Xinghe: “?”

Weren’t you guys the ones who said we’ll fight until dawn tonight?

That night, the news about Marshal Ling’s video call quickly spread in various small groups inside the Ark, and many versions were reported.

The first version was relatively normal –

“I heard that Marshal Ling came to the video to check tonight??”

“Yes! The six of them said it themselves, they were playing cards at the time, and Marshal Ling made a video call.
It shocked everyone.”

“Their relationship is so good… It’s only been a long time since they separated, and have to video call.”

“I guess they miss each other.
After all, people haven’t been married for a long time, and it’s still the affectionate honeymoon period.”

Later, the various stories evolved –

“I heard that when they were talking on the video, a passing colleague walked by.
Now that colleague is very worried that he will be silenced by Marshal Ling…”

“Wait a minute, what are they chatting across the screen?”

“Maybe it’s because the tone is greasy? Or the topic of conversation is more unrestrained?”

“Maybe it’s just blowing a kiss on the screen, which is often the case when my husband and I make video calls.”

“But I can’t imagine what Marshal Ling looks like when he does this kind of action… He looks so serious on TV.”

“It’s said that the more serious one is in public, the more unrestrained they are in private!”

“How come I heard that Marshal Ling went directly to Nanga because he couldn’t help missing the leader Xu?!”

“What? It’s not so… If a big man like Marshal Ling visits a city, how can he be so silent?”

“I heard that Team Leader Xu is sick again and has a bad appetite.
This made Marshal Ling feel bad, so he had a cold face and directly contracted the five-star hotel in Linjiang to cook for Team Leader Xu.”

“Ah? The version I heard is like this…”

Finally, after going around, word of mouth continued, and the topic that had remained unchanged for thousands of years reemerged –

“Have you heard? Leader Xu is pregnant!!”

“No way!! Is it true this time??”

“I personally heard that because of the pregnancy, Team Leader Xu has already given up drinking completely!”

“But he still goes out to play while pregnant?”

“It is said that he was just diagnosed with pregnancy, and has taken the special plane of the Marshal’s mansion to return to Nebula City overnight.
He won’t be seen until next year…”

Team Leader Xu, who was “pregnant”, was unaware of the gossip rumors from the outside world.

On a snowy night in Nanga, he fell into a blissful, deep sleep.
