Chapter 113: Brother Yao
From a distance, she looked very beautiful. But up close, she was even more stunning!
Her skin was so tender. Le Yao Yao was envious!
Ru Shuang had one hand against her forehead as she gradually looked up at Le Yao Yao.
When she saw Le Yao Yao, she froze –
"It's you?!" She happily beamed.
"Huh? You know who I am?"
"I guess you've forgotten about me. Aww.."
Ru Shuang appeared very disappointed as she sighed. Seeing this, Le Yao Yao was surprised.
Based on Ru Shuang's expression, she obviously must have known the previous owner of this body. But she wasn't sure if Ru Shuang knew she was a female or not.
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao noticed she was still standing by the door. She wasn't sure if the others from the VIP room had witnessed what just happened.
If they saw, maybe they will eventually find out from Ru Shuang that she was a woman….
The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the more worried she became.
So, she decided it was way too risky to stay there. She wanted to bring Ru Shuang to a secluded area so she could find out about her true identity.
After all, she really wanted to know the previous owner's past. Why was she pretending to be a eunuch?
Sadly, the Heavens didn't grant her wish. Just as Le Yao Yao was about to suggest going to another location, Nangong Jun Xi's bright voice rang from behind her.
"Oh? Isn't it our Lady Ru Shuang? Xiao Tu Zi, why are you standing and blocking the entrance? Hurry and allow Lady Ru Shuang in?!"
Clearly, Nangong Jun Xi had misunderstood and assumed Ru Shuang purposely came for him.
That damn perverted man! Once he sees a beautiful woman, his eyes brighten!
But if she allowed Ru Shuang to enter and she said something that revealed her gender, then she was doomed…..
"Xiao Tu Zi, why are you dilly-dallying??"
Le Yao Yao's face crumpled and she silently gritted her teeth. Ultimately, she stepped aside to let Lady Ru Shuang enter.
Ugggh.. she was doomed either way. If Ru Shuang reveals that she was a woman, too bad for her.
Unexpectedly, Ru Shuang didn't enter right away when Le Yao Yao stepped aside. She was still standing by the entrance, and when she looked up at Nangong Jun Xi, her face was filled with a layer of frost and resentment.
She had the exact icy expression when she was playing the guqin downstairs.
Le Yao Yao was surprised by how fast her facial expressions could changed.
A moment ago, Ru Shuang looked so happy and emotional to see her. But now, she was back to being the frozen beauty.
Her iciness could compete with the King of Hell!?!!
"Please excuse us, young master. Today, I have something to say to brother Yao."
Nangong Jun Xi wasn't the only one who was astonished. Leng Jun Yu also had his brows raised. They thought it was incredibly weird that Ru Shuang and Le Yao Yao knew each other.
But Le Yao Yao was the one who was the most stupefied.
If Ru Shuang calls her brother Yao, then that must mean she obviously didn't know she was a female?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao's heart could finally rest.
"Oh? So you're an old friend of Xiao Tu Zi? That's another reason why you should come in and have a seat. I am curious to know how you two met!"
"Xiao Tu Zi?!" Ru Shuang was confused.
Ru Shuang's eyes landed on Leng Jun Yu and Nangong Jun Xi, then she turned to look at Le Yao Yao and made the connection.
Grief could be seen flashing through her eyes. But Ru Shuang quickly composed herself and curtsied at Nangong Jun Xi and Leng Jun Yu.
"Sorry for the trouble." Then, Ru Shuang elegantly entered the room.
As for Le Yao Yao, she no longer used the excuse to use the washroom. After all, she really wanted to know the story of the previous owner. She wanted to find out about her relationship with Ru Shuang.
According to Ru Shuang, they met half a year ago. At the time, Ru Shuang's family background was quite good. They were a family with a literary reputation. Her parents loved her very much.
However, half a year ago, her father suddenly became very ill. They went to see many physicians, but it was no use. Ru Shuang was so desperate that she decided to go to a temple on the mountainside to pray for blessings. She wanted her father to heal and live a long and healthy life.
However, the path up the mountain was very rough. Ru Shuang was only a weak maiden, so it was a very difficult trip for her.
After Ru Shuang had finished praying, she accidentally slipped and rolled off the mountain. She ended up twisting her ankle.
The mountainside was the most dangerous at night. That was when countless wolves and poisonous snakes would come out.
Originally, Ru Shuang thought she was going to die for sure. But luckily, someone saved her.
That person was the previous owner of Le Yao Yao's current body.
Afterwards, the previous owner of her body carried Ru Shuang home and stayed at her place for a few nights before leaving.
Most likely, she had a great relationship with Ru Shuang.
Le Yao Yao gazed at Ru Shuang and suddenly, Ru Shuang reminded her of her old roommates.
Back in the 21st century, Le Yao Yao would party, eat, shop, and hang out with her roommates. Those days were so great.
But in this era, she only had Xiao Mu Zi. Now that Ru Shuang appeared, she was delighted!
So knowing that Ru Shuang had ended up in a brothel pained Le Yao Yao's heart. She couldn't help but asked, "Then what happened afterwards? How come you ended up here?"
"Brother Yao, shortly after you left, my father passed away. My mother was so depressed from his death that she also got sick as well. Although we're a family with a literary reputation, we are not rich. When my father became ill, we had sold all the expensive items from our home. We needed the money to afford the best physicians. But at the end, he still passed away. So there was only me and my mother left. But my mother's condition was on and off as well. The physician said she will only heal if we used the best medicine. But we have no more money, so….so…."
By the end, Ru Shuang was choking on her words as tears the size of a bean began to roll down from her lovely cheeks.
Now that Le Yao Yao compared her experiences with Ru Shuang's, she felt that as a little eunuch without other responsibilities, she was in a much better position.
Le Yao Yao realized Ru Shuang was a good girl and she only placed herself in this situation for her mother's sake.
But Ru Shuang was probably only fifteen or sixteen years of age! Although she had just entered the brothel and hadn't taken any clients yet, what will happen in the future?
If she begins taking clients, her life was over!?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao felt very anxious.
For some reason, although she barely knew Ru Shuang, she wanted to help her.
But Le Yao Yao was merely a eunuch. Her abilities were limited. Even if she wanted to help, how would she help?
