Chapter 104: Their performances
The woman was tall; at least 180cm.
Amongst all the contestants, she looked like a crane in a flock of chicken.
But that didn't affect her beauty the slightest.
"She" was wearing a long white muslin dress. When the wind blew, the dress would flutter along with it. It made her appear even more enchanting and graceful.
Her black hair looked like seaweed as she wore it in a simple bun. In the middle of it was a pearl hair clip.
Also, she had a neutral face. Her makeup was the fashionable plum blossom style.I googled it, and this is probably what Nangong Jun Xi looked like (but not as feminine LOL). This is the plum blossom style.
There was eyeliner on those long peach blossom eyes. The eyeliner was curved upwards at the corner; making her appear like a flirty spirit.
Although she wasn't a beauty that could cause a downfall of a city, she was a matchless beauty in another sense.
Except, while the crowd was being stunned by this beauty, they had no idea that it was actually a "he" instead of a "she"….
After Nangong Jun Xi got on stage, he accepted all the shocking glances. Most likely, he was already used it to from earlier, so it wasn't a big deal anymore.
Then, he adjusted his mood and took out a jade flute from his sleeve that he had prepared prior to coming on stage.
After all, ever since he was little, his expertise was playing the flute.
While Nangong Jun Xi was taking out the jade flute, Le Yao Yao was secretly watching from behind the stage.
Although she disliked the 7th Prince, she must admit that the way he was holding on the flute was very elegant.
In addition, Le Yao Yao noticed that Nangong Jun Xi was attractive regardless if he was dressed as a man or woman.
Nangong Jun Xi gracefully placed the jade flute on his lips, and soothing music slowly began to transmit into the audience's ears.
It sounded like pearls dropping onto a jade plate, running water streaming down from a high mountain, and an enchanting vivid image could be formed in one's mind.
Initially, Le Yao Yao had doubted Nangong Jun Xi's abilities, but now, she was stunned.
After all, in her eyes, Nangong Jun Xi had always been a person only with status. She thought he was ignorant and incompetent in all other aspects. Who would've thought he actually had some ability?
Although the King of Hell was also a wonderful flute player, there was a lot of sorrow in his music.
Whereas, Nangong Jun Xi's flute music was sunny and bright. It was able to penetrate straight into a listener's heart.
All of a sudden, the entire public square became dead silent. Everyone was intoxicated by Nangong Jun Xi's music.
This continued until Nangong Jun Xi ended his song. He gracefully swung his sleeve and bowed.
Gradually, sounds of clear applauses could be heard amongst the audience. The applauses were loud as thunder!
Nangong Jun Xi charmingly exited the stage. Then, he went up to Le Yao Yao and raised his eyebrows. He could tell Le Yao Yao was touched by his performance.
"So? How was this Prince's flute music? Did it sound good?"
Although it was only a competition, Nangong Jun Xi was very excited because he could see that Le Yao Yao was impressed. Not only did he want to win the competition, he also wanted to leave a good impression on him!
"It's quite good!"
Although they were only three words, when they entered Nangong Jun Xi's ears, his heart quivered. There was astonishment in his peach blossom eyes.
After all, ever since he had met this little eunuch, he had never once said anything good about him!
But now he was praising him?!
"Haha, of course!"
But before his smile could stay on his face, Le Yao Yao continued –
"The flute is beautiful, but the person is even more beautiful! It's a perfect combination to the 7th Prince's current image! Haha!"
"Damn you, servant! You're beautiful! What are you trying to say?!"
Beautiful was a word that was used to describe women! Damn that servant. How dare he compare him to a woman?
While Nangong Jun Xi angrily stormed away, Le Yao Yao had plastered a smile on her face as she cheerfully walked onto the stage.
Le Yao Yao's beauty was very natural. She was like a refined carved jade!
The moment she walked onto the stage, everyone held onto their breaths. The audience's attention all centralized on Le Yao Yao's body. Prince Rui was no exception!
Le Yao Yao noticed that the King of Hell was sitting on the first row. Earlier, she didn't notice and wasn't the slightest bit nervous.
But now, as she saw him watching her, Le Yao Yao's heart beat was beginning to accelerate. Not only was she nervous and excited, she was also a bit hopeful.
She truly wanted to show him the best part of her.
Would he like her performance?
Le Yao Yao quickly rearranged her mood and began to follow the elegant music.
Her movements were graceful. She was like a dragon swimming smoothly in the lake. She waved her lily-white hands and gently toss her long sleeves into the air.
Le Yao Yao created this dance on her own. Since this body had a great foundation, she could carry out the ultimate performance.
The audience were mesmerized and intoxicated by Le Yao Yao -including the King of Hell.
Leng Jun Yu was sitting quietly as he watched from his seat. His long, slender fingers were enclosed around a cup of tea.
His movement was elegant, but no one knew that from the moment a specific person had came onto the stage, his movement had remained unchanged.
Maybe he had forgotten about his tea. After all, at this very moment, in his eyes and heart, all he could see was this little beauty.
He never cared whether women were beautiful or not.
Because to him, women were disgusting!
But why was his heart so attracted towards this little guy dressed as a woman?
When he smiled, he would feel joy. When he danced, he would feel stunned. And when he carelessly turned around, his heart would flutter.
It was as if someone had thrown a stone into his calm lake; causing layers upon layers of ripples.
What was that feeling that was slowly bubbling up from his heart?
But Leng Jun Yu knew that at this moment, he was attracted to the little person; regardless if he was male or female.
While Leng Jun Yu was thinking this, another pair of long narrow eyes never left Le Yao Yao as well.
Le Yao Yao finished her dance with a perfect leap into the air. Immediately, the audience clapped as loud as thunder. The applauses were even more ear-splitting compared to Nangong Jun Xi's.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao lightly lifted her head and smiling face as she bowed to the audience. Then, she gracefully turned and walked off the stage.
The applauses continued even after she was gone.
Even the usual unsmiling Leng Jun Yu couldn't help but lightly clapped after Le Yao Yao's performance.
Le Yao Yao happened to see this.
Hoho! The King of Hell was clapping!?
Does that mean he enjoyed my performance?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao relaxed her brows and smiled even brighter.
But she had no idea that her unrestrained actions caused a person to feel extremely bitter.
That person was, of course, Nangong Jun Xi!
From the moment that Le Yao Yao had entered the stage, his eyes was on him!
Although he didn't want to admit it, this was the most beautiful dance he had ever seen in his entire life.
He was so engrossed that he couldn't free himself…
In addition, there was another strange thought in his heart.
He really wanted to hide this person.
Because "he" was too beautiful. The dance was too beautiful. Nangong Jun Xi wanted it all for himself. He didn't want to share.
He didn't want to admit it, but when he saw the little person smiling at his senior brother, he was jealous!
Could he like the little eunuch??!
"So?! How was servant's dance, 7th Prince? Was it good enough for your eyes?"
Le Yao Yao had her hands crossed as she proudly smiled at him.
But based on her understanding of Nangong Jun Xi's personality, even if he liked her dance, he would never admit it. Instead, he would probably counter with a few insulting lines; just like what she did to him earlier.
Unexpectedly, Nangong Jun Xi was gazing very deeply into her eyes. It was so strange! Le Yao Yao's scalp couldn't help but felt numb.
