Chapter 114: Redeeming Ru Shuang
Currently, Le Yao Yao was looking very stressed.
Ru Shuang was sitting across from Le Yao Yao, so she could tell Le Yao Yao was trying to help her think of a solution.
However, she knew Le Yao Yao wouldn't be able to help her. Despite that, Ru Shuang was already very satisfied.
"Brother Yao, Ru Shuang is already grateful for your care. Perhaps, this is Ru Shuang's life…." Ru Shuang sadly whispered.
"No, Ru Shuang. There must be a solution! You're only in your teens. If you remain in the brothel, your life is over!"
Le Yao Yao was emotional as she declared.
Ru Shuang wanted to burst into tears when she saw how much Le Yao Yao cared about her. Her eyes instantly turned misty. "From the moment I entered this place, I already knew my life was over. Brother Yao, do you look down on Ru Shuang?"
Ru Shuang anxiously gazed at Le Yao Yao. She was so nervous that her palms were sweating.
She didn't mind if the whole world looked down on her….as long as brother Yao didn't….
Ru Shuang looked extremely pitiful as she gazed at Le Yao Yao.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao's heart ached for her. She quickly rushed, "Of course not! Why would I look down on you? Don't undervalue yourself!"
Hearing Le Yao Yao's words, Ru Shuang's dim pupils lit up like a candlelight in the darkness. It was dazzling.
Le Yao Yao smiled back at her.
So now, we have a young maiden who looked as gorgeous as the goddess and a 'young man' that looked like a carved jade as they gazed sweetly at each other. It almost looked like a painting.
At this moment, Nangong Jun Xi was feeling very conflicted.
Today, he was the one who came to find women?! How come it seemed like someone else had replaced him? Uggghhh! How depressing!
Nangong Jun Xi wasn't the only one who was dissatisfied. Prince Rui's eyes flickered when he saw how happy Le Yao Yao and Ru Shuang were together.
But he didn't say anything. He just kept drinking cup after cup…
Currently, Le Yao Yao had all her attention on Ru Shuang, so she had no idea how the two nobles were feeling. She felt so bad for Ru Shuang, but suddenly, she thought of an idea!
"I got it!"
Le Yao Yao jumped out of her seat and turned towards Nangong Jun Xi.
She had a huge smile on her face.
Seeing this, Nangong Jun Xi felt his scalp turning numb. After all, whenever Le Yao Yao smiled at him like that, it was never with good intentions. As expected –
"7th Prince, do you keep your word?"
"Eh? What are you trying to say, servant? Are you doubting this Prince's character? Whatever this Prince says, he means!"
"If that is so, 7th Prince, you remember the bet we made yesterday, right? Then, please help Ru Shuang redeem her body!"
Nangong Jun Xi was stunned. In addition, Ru Shuang was also shocked. She came over and quietly began, "Brother Yao…."
Ru Shuang was about to continue, but Le Yao Yao cut her off.
"Ru Shuang, you sold your body to the brothel. You have enough money to cure your mother's illness now. So if we can redeem your body, then you will be able to leave this place. That is the best ending for you. You don't want to remain here forever, right?"
"I do want to leave. But….is it really possible?"
After all, if circumstances hadn't forced her, she would have never sold herself to the brothel.
Especially now that brother Yao had appeared, Ru Shuang wanted to leave this place even more.
"Of course you can leave. Because the 7th Prince is here! There's nothing that the 7th Prince cannot do, right?!"
Le Yao Yao purposely praised Nangong Jun Xi to make him feel super amazing. Hearing this, Nangong Jun Xi's mouth couldn't help but twitch.
But honestly, he did feel bad for Ru Shuang.
But life was unfair. In this brothel, there were probably countless of girls who had similar or even worse circumstances than Ru Shuang.
However, now that Le Yao Yao had openly challenged him like this, of course he, Nangong Jun Xi, must keep his word. He will help Ru Shuang!
For some reason, even though he knew the servant was purposely praising him to get his way, he really enjoyed it.
Aaaaii. Was he a hopeless cause?
Nangong Jun Xi felt conflicted. He gave Le Yao Yao a sideway glance and stated, "This Prince will naturally keep his word. No need for you to continue bootlicking!"
"Hehe, servant knows the 7th Prince is the most righteous!:
Since Ru Shuang had not successfully escaped yet, Le Yao Yao must continue to give the 7th Prince face and bootlick some more!
After all, bootlicking was free!
So, Nangong Jun Xi went to find the female brothel keeper to discuss about redeeming Ru Shuang's body.
The moment the female brothel keeper heard his request, she refused immediately.
After all, Ru Shuang was the star of their show! She was her money tree! Why would she let someone so valuable leave?
But despite the female brothel keeper's refusal, Nangong Jun Xi pressed on. He used the King of Hell's scary title and a huge amount of sum to forcefully make the female brothel keeper comply.
Ultimately, the female brothel keeper gave in because she was afraid to die and she was receiving a large sum of money.
So now, Le Yao Yao and Ru Shuang were happily hugging and jumping around.
Ru Shuang had tears in her eyes, "Thank you, brother Yao! Thank you! You're my lucky star! Ru Shuang truly owes you too much…"
"Haha, silly girl. No need to thank me. You are now a free woman! Go and pack your things. You can go home now!"
Seeing Le Yao Yao smile, Ru Shuang's face suddenly turned pink. She shyly lowered her cute little face…
Ru Shuang was free. Le Yao Yao was happy. Nangong Jun Xi spent a lot of money. As for Leng Jun Yu, he was quietly drinking his heart away. No one knew what was going through in his mind.
Hong Yi could sense a coldness from Leng Jun Yu as he watched Ru Shuang holding Le Yao Yao's hands.
Seeing this, Hong Yi was jealous.
Could this young master be interested in Ru Shuang?
No, she must think of a way to make a move first if she wanted to win….
Ru Shuang went to pack her things. This time, Le Yao Yao really had to use the washroom.
After she was done relieving herself, Le Yao Yao walked through the narrow and winding path.
She felt proud that she was able to help Ru Shuang and was in a very good mood.
So as she walked, she happily observed her surroundings.
This was truly the Capital's best brothel. Even though she was in the back courtyard, it was richly ornamented and designed magnificently. There were huge red lanterns hanging everywhere. An extravagant atmosphere could be felt all around.
While Le Yao Yao was looking around, suddenly, she saw a figure in white walking by her.
