Chapter 101: The day of the show!
Also, Prince Rui was offering very generous rewards for the winners. The first place winner will receive 100 silver taels. The second place winner will receive 50 silver taels, while third place will receive 30 silver taels.
Although this amount may not seem like a lot, to some ordinary citizens, this was an unfathomable number!
After all, most ordinary people's expenses were only a silver tael per month.
Once Le Yao Yao found out the three rewards were so high, she began to feel very emotional.
Oh God! 100 silver taels!!
She knew the King of Hell was going to be generous! Hehe. This time, she must try her best to get 1st place! Even if she couldn't get first, she must be within the top three!
Hehe. After all, she'd still be rich if she was able to get 30 silver taels!
In this type of economy, if one were to use their money sparingly, they may be able to last a few years!
Plus, she could also start a business on the side! She wasn't simply going to sit around and do nothing.
Furthermore, she also had Xiao Mu Zi. Her future happiness will depend on this competition!
Le Yao Yao! You must do your best!
Leng Jun Yu specifically chose the site that the talent show was going to take place.
In addition, the area that the maidens will be staying overnight was remote. There was no exit from behind.
Le Yao Yao and Leng Jun Yu's crew were all aware of this since they were part of the planning process.
After the maidens enter the remote area, they will steal the dragon and change it into a phoenix!
Then they will wait for the evil cult to show up and extinguish them once and for all!
Even if the evil cult wanted to escape, there was nothing but a steep cliff behind them. Unless they wanted to seek death, there was no other path.
Le Yao Yao was extremely impressed by Leng Jun Yu's refined plan. Although she used the tactics from "The Art of War", the King of Hell made sure to fill in anything that was lacking.
Currently, it was early morning, and Prince Rui's residence was bustling with noise and excitement. After all, many eunuchs from the residence were dressed up as maidens today!
They removed their eunuch costumes and changed into dresses.
In addition, they all had rouge and powder on their faces!
Since all the chosen eunuchs had delicate features, it was almost impossible to tell they were eunuchs after their makeovers!
Ever since the eunuchs had their family jewels cut off, they've become very soft spoken and feminine. Now, they were totally believable as women!
Leng Jun Yu and Nangong Jun Xi both woke up early as they supervised from the side. Although Nangong Jun Xi had made a bet with Le Yao Yao, he was now having second thoughts after seeing all the eunuchs dressed up as maidens. He felt goosebumps all over because they actually look convincing!
He wasn't going to change into a female outfit no matter what! He was a manly man. How could he do something so humiliating?!
Leng Jun Yu figured Nangong Jun Xi was going to back out last minute. So, he leisurely savoured his tea as he raised his brows and coolly stated, "Dressing up as a woman is not a character of a man, yet going back on one's word is?"
Leng Jun Yu's short, powerful sentence caused Nangong Jun Xi to freeze. He regretted making a bet with Le Yao Yao. However, eating his words wasn't something he would do either.
So although Nangong Jun Xi was extremely reluctant, he ultimately pulled a long face and went to the change room to change into the outfit that had been specifically designed for him.
After a very long time, Nangong Jun Xi finally reappeared again.
Everyone around couldn't help but burst into laughter.
However, obviously the servants were too afraid to directly laugh at Nangong Jun Xi. Hence, they had an internal battle in their bodies. At the end, the chief managers dismissed them.
But Xing couldn't help but poke fun at Nangong Jun Xi, "Haha! Who would've thought that our 7th Prince could look so good as a woman? Muahaha!!"
"Damn you!" Nangong Jun Xi was red in the face. Without thinking, he wanted to throw himself at Xing to fight. Unfortunately, this was the first time he had ever worn a dress. Within two steps, he nearly tripped and fell on his face.
By now, Nangong Jun Xi was gritting his teeth as he scrunched his brows and hollered, "This dress is so annoying!"
It was so much better to dress as a man!
Seeing this, Xing laughed even more openly. He had one of his hands on his stomach now.
Even the non smiling Leng Jun Yu and Mei had their mouths curved upwards.
Since he was being ridiculed, Nangong Jun Xi almost wanted to find a hole and dig himself in. He never wanted to come out again!
Oh God! He lost so much face!
He was the 7th Prince of the Ancient Kingdom of Khotan. He had never experienced so much humiliation in his life!
This was all the little eunuch's fault!
Humph! He will definitely get revenge! Le Yao Yao said whoever wins must fulfill a request from the other party. Oh yeah?! If he wins, he will make "him" serve for him for the rest of his life. That way, he has all the time in the world to torture the little eunuch!
"Hmm…how come I don't see that servant? Did he run away because he didn't want to dress as a maiden?" Nangong Jun Xi asked as he glanced around the room.
After hearing Nangong Jun Xi's words, Leng Jun Yu realized he hadn't seen Xiao Tu Zi either ever since he had arrived here.
Logically, Xiao Tu Zi wasn't the type to go back on his words…
So, Leng Jun Yu ordered his chief manager to bring Le Yao Yao here.
The chief manager dismissed himself right after Leng Jun Yu's command. However, he quickly returned with Le Yao Yao behind him.
When everyone saw Le Yao Yao, they felt like they had been shocked by lightning. They were frozen. They couldn't stop staring –
Currently, Le Yao Yao was wearing a pink dress with a ribbon across her waist. She had a pink hairband on her head, but the rest of her hair was loose behind her.
Her face was the size of a palm. Her skin was flushed and her eyes looked like limpid autumn water.
Her brows were curved and black; just like a willow leaf.
Her mouth was cherry red, and the outline was perfect!
She was a peerless beauty!
Seeing how everyone was watching her, Le Yao Yao felt a bit embarrassed as she ducked her head. But deep down, she was kind of proud.
Actually, they weren't the only ones who were shocked. While she was changing into her outfit, she saw her own reflection on the bronze mirror and was stunned as well!
After all, this was the first time she had changed into a female outfit here. Normally, she was always dressed as a eunuch. She never thought there would be a day where she could look like a woman again.
Currently, she knew she was beautiful. Even the King of Hell's eyes flashed because of her. Although it quickly disappeared, Le Yao Yao still caught it.
For some reason, it made her very happy.
Hehe. I'm so attractive that even the King of Hell is smitten by me!
Le Yao Yao was somewhat delighted and somewhat bashful at the same time. Then, she lowered her eyes and greeted the sitting King of Hell.
"Prince Rui, servant wishes you well."
Le Yao Yao's voice was very clear and graceful. It was a pleasure to listen. However, the King of Hell was kind of depressed…
What a pity. If "he" was born female, how great would that be…
Wait a second, doesn't he hate women?
The why would he want the eunuch to be a woman?!
Leng Jun Yu couldn't understand his thought process.
Also, he knew his wish will never come true.
Because, Xiao Tu Zi was a eunuch….
As for Nangong Jun Xi, his peach blossom eyes never left Le Yao Yao the moment he had entered the hall.
Oh God! How could this beauty that shook one's core be the little eunuch?!
H-how was that possible?!?
But regardless of whether he believed it or not, this "maiden" was the little eunuch that had always bickered with him!
Except this change was truly too drastic?!
He had a hard time accepting it.
Ever since he was young, he had seen many beauties. Hot, charming, cute, lovable….you name it!
But none of them were comparable to this one.
Although "he" was only wearing a simple dress without any jewelleries on "his" head, it made him look like a pure natural beauty.
He was like a fairy that had descended from the Heaven.
Without knowing, Nangong Jun Xi was totally dumbfounded. His heart felt like it was vibrating from a crash; even his heartbeat was irregular.
Nangong Jun Xi gradually realized that he was aroused…
What the hell?! Was he insane?!
How could he be aroused from a eunuch?!?! Oh God! What's wrong with him?!?
Thinking of this, Nangong Jun Xi's heart and head were a mess. At the end, he harshly glared at Le Yao Yao.
It is all "his" fault! Yes!!
So now, Nangong Jun Xi turned away and no longer dared to give Le Yao Yao another look.
Le Yao Yao had no idea that Nangong Jun Xi was having these thoughts.
She decided to return to the King of Hell's side. After all, even though she was currently dressed as a maiden, she was still the King of Hell's personal little eunuch. So, it was her job to serve and stand next to him.
However, just as Le Yao Yao was about to walk to Leng Jun Yu, she tripped over her own skirt.
