Chapter 126: Le Yao Yao's dramatic reaction
They must be destined to meet or something?! Bai thought to himself as the corner of his mouth began to curve into a warm, elegant smile.
At this moment, Nangong Jun Xi couldn't take being disregarded anymore. He was sick of being an invisible person. So, he loudly coughed to show his existence.
Le Yao Yao snapped back to reality and quickly tried to adjust her erratic heartbeat. Then, she politely bowed and greeted Leng Jun Yu and Nangong Jun Xi.
"Servant wishes the Prince well, the 7th Prince well!"
"Humph! This Prince thought I didn't exist underneath your eyes!"
Le Yao Yao was used to the 7th Prince's attitude. So, she quickly lowered her head and pretended to look like a respectful, weak servant.
"How would servant dare?"
"Humph! Is there something you do not dare to do?"
Perhaps he was still upset for being neglected, but Nangong Jun Xi wouldn't verbally release Le Yao Yao. Le Yao Yao only paid attention to him whenever they fought.
Although Nangong Jun Xi knew it was wrong of him to do this, he didn't know how else to get his attention. He knows that Le Yao Yao probably hates his guts on the inside.
Nangong Jun Xi was correct. At this moment, Le Yao Yao was cursing him from within.
Damn you, 7th Prince! You're always picking on me! Could we have been enemies the previous life? That's why each time they meet, they couldn't get along peacefully.
F*** this slave owning society!
Le Yao Yao didn't dare to directly yell at Nangong Jun Xi, but currently she was imagining a scenario in her head. She imagined that Nangong Jun Xi was wearing only his underwear and she was whipping him with a long whip. The arrogant and despotic Nangong Jun Xi was begging her to show mercy towards him. He cried out, "Spare me, my Queen!"
Now, Le Yao Yao had an extremely devilious smile on her face.
Le Yao Yao was the type of person whose thoughts could be plainly seen on her face.
Seeing this, Nangong Jun Xi felt goosebumps. Subconsciously, he could tell Le Yao Yao must be thinking of evil thoughts about him.
Just as he was about to speak up and lecture him, the man in white suddenly interrupted.
"Brother Yao! We must be fated to meet! I'm surprised to see you again so soon!"
Oh God! That voice!?! Could it be?
Le Yao Yao was astonished as she instantly turned her head towards the source.
"Brother Bai, why are you here?!"
Leng Jun Yu and Nangong Jun Xi were shocked. They never thought that Le Yao Yao would be acquainted with Dongfang Bai.
Seeing how brightly Le Yao Yao smiled at Dongfang Bai, the King of Hell narrowed his eyes and pursed his thin lips. He seemed a bit jealous.
This little guy sure knows how to attract bees and butterflies. First, it was his junior brother. Then, Lady Ru Shuang. And now, Dongfang Bai….
The more he thought about it, the more Leng Jun Yu's eyes flickered.
As for Nangong Jun Xi, he was stunned as he asked, "Bai, you two….know each other?"
"Haha. Yes. I have encountered brother Yao a few times!"
Ahhhh… what a warm, kind man! He gives me the feeling of an older brother from next door.
Le Yao Yao was an only child in her previous life. She had always wanted a sibling. Sadly, her parents said she was enough for them.
Deep down, she had always wanted a kind and gentle older brother; just like this man in front of her.
For instance, when he saw her, despite knowing she was merely a servant, he continued to treat her with respect -like there wasn't a hierarchy gap between them. If it were other people, they would care about the concept of face and pretend not to know her.
So now, Le Yao Yao's impression of Dongfang Bai went up several levels.
She gave Dongfang Bai a brilliant smile.
But she had no idea her beautiful smile towards one man was painful to two.
As for Dongfang Bai, his mood improved quite a bit after seeing Le Yao Yao's smiling face.
After all, initially, he was quite upset when he thought of his missing sister. But now that he was faced with this charming little guy, he felt much better.
"Brother Yao, how is your waist? Are you still in pain? Would you like me to take a look for you now?"
If he assumed correctly, earlier, the running footsteps belonged to Le Yao Yao. How could he run so quickly when he was injured?
Thinking of this, Dongfang Bai's face revealed his concern.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao couldn't help but feel warm all over.
Wow, he actually cared about her and remembered her injury!
Le Yao Yao felt a sweetness from within. But before Le Yao Yao could respond back to Dongfang Bai, Leng Jun Yu's handsome brows crinkled and he opened his mouth without thinking.
"You're injured? Where? How?"
"Umm, Prince Rui, servant is ok!"
Initially, she was dragging herself back and had planned on sleeping the moment she returned.
But when she found out the King of Hell had returned, it was as if she had been injected with chicken blood.
At that moment, her body was recharged and her waist no longer felt any more pain.
But now that Dongfang Bai reminded her, she could feel it again.
Despite how short and small Tu Fei was, he was quite strong. His kick almost took her life!
Although she hadn't had a chance to take a look at her injury, she knew her waist must be green or purple from the bruise.
But before Le Yao Yao could do anything else, she felt her wrist tightening and she was pulled down to sit on a chair.
Now, she was making eye contact with a handsome face. The King of Hell's icy voice entered her ear, but he was not speaking to her.
"Bai, come over to take a look at Xiao Tu Zi's injury!" He barked.
Hearing this, fear appeared on Le Yao Yao's face as she tried to break out of the King of Hell's grasp.
"No! It's fine! Servant doesn't need treatment!"
"How could you say you're fine? Look at your face. You're so pale. Do you think your body is made of iron? Take off your clothes this instant!"
Leng Jun Yu's demand made it worse. Now, Le Yao Yao was freaking out like crazy.
After all, her injury was on her waist. How could she reveal it? If others saw, they will know she was female. How could she live then!?
The King of Hell loathed women! If the King of Hell knew her true identity, he will kill her!
So just as the King of Hell was about to reach over, Le Yao Yao screamed on top of her lungs, "NooooOooOooOoO!!!!!"
Le Yao Yao's sharp and mournful scream was incredibly loud. It even echoed across the clouds. On this silent night, it was so loud and clear that Mei and Xing rushed in to see what had happened.
The King of Hell was so surprised that his hand froze in mid air. He didn't attempt to move another inch.
Nangong Jun Xi and Dongfang Bai were confused as well. They just wanted to check on his injury. Why was his reaction so intense? Could he have a secret that he couldn't reveal to anyone?
Le Yao Yao had her arms tightly wrapped over her chest. She looked like she was on defense mode as fear continued to flash across her eyes. While everyone was in a state of confusion, she ran out of the Study and rushed back to her room.
Currently, the Study was extremely quiet.
Everyone was appalled and bewildered.
After a few moments later, the patient Dongfang Bai spoke up.
"Each person has a secret he would not want to reveal to others. Perhaps, brother Yao is the same."
Everyone agreed with Dongfang Bai. But suddenly, Xing seemed to have thought of something and blurted out, "Xiao Yao Zi is a bit odd. Last time after I had completed a mission with Mei, we were both disgusting and muddy so we wanted to shower together…but Xiao Yao Zi wouldn't allow us in no matter what. Could he have a secret on his body?!"
"Back then, I've heard that some poor children would be sold to wealthy families to provide sexual favours. Sometimes, they would be mistreated and their masters may even put seals or marks on them. Could Xiao Tu Zi be one of those victims?"
The more he thought about it, the more Nangong Jun Xi thought it was possible.
Poor servant. He'll bully him less from now on….
Leng Jun Yu's face remained the same, but underneath his sleeves, his fists were clenched. Could "he" have gone through something traumatic??
