To my dear readers,
Thank you for being patient. I’m still in a lot of pain but I do feel slightly better. Please support me by clicking some ads because it would mean a lot to me if I can get paid by wordads next month (It takes around 5 months for me to get paid *cries*)
Chapter 16: Friendship
Le Yao Yao felt like she had a dream.
But everything in the dream felt very realistic.
The unpredictable man, the vengeful assassin, and lastly, the heartless arrow. She recalled blood splattering everywhere.
Every scene continuously replayed in Le Yao Yao’s mind. She was so afraid that she woke up from her dream.
She leaped up from the bed as her heart continued to beat violently. She felt traumatized from what she saw.
There was a layer of sweat on her forehead.
With one hand, she held onto her beating heart. Le Yao Yao took huge breaths until she was able to calm down. Then, she mumbled to herself.
“Whew… luckily it was just a dream… I was almost scared to death.. eh…!?”
Originally, she felt a breath of relief. But after looking around her surroundings, Le Yao Yao literally felt like she had been struck by lightning. She became as stiff as a fossil.
It was a simple room with white walls, a simple wooden table with four stools. With one look, it was obvious that the items were historical.
Instead of her beloved ding dong mattress, she was sleeping on top of a grass filled mattress on a wooden bed.
This is what Ding Dong looks like
Looking at everything, Le Yao Yao felt defeated again.
So it turned out she wasn’t dreaming. She actually teleported through time…
This was the dynasty that didn’t exist in history books; the Heaven Yuan dynasty!
She really couldn’t go back home…
The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the more depressed she felt.
Perhaps because it was deep into the night. When the silence hit, the loneliness was more unbearable.
Plus, being in this unfamiliar dynasty also meant she didn’t have a single family member.
Le Yao Yao was becoming more and more upset. Her tears started to slide down from her cheeks. In no time, her face was covered in tears.
At this moment, an anxious voice suddenly spoke up.
“Xiao Yao Zi, why are you crying?!”
Xiao Mu Zi’s caring face came into Le Yao Yao’s view.
“Xiao Mu Zi….”
Xiao Mu Zi was the only person she was familiar with in this strange land. His concern for her made her heart feel all warm and fuzzy.
Right now, she just wanted someone to care.
At least she wasn’t all alone here. There was a person who cared about her.
Since she didn’t want to worry Xiao Mu Zi, Le Yao Yao wiped away her tears and broke into a smile.
“I’m just hungry.”
“Oh you silly bum. If you’re hungry, just tell me! Here. This is the steamed bun I took from the kitchen. I purposely told Brother Li to save it for you! No one knows. Or else, there would have been nothing left. Hurry, eat!”
Xiao Mu Zi’s nagging reminded Le Yao Yao of her ex-roommate.
Although she nagged a lot, she truly cared about her.
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao didn’t pretend to be polite and reached out for the steamed bun from Xiao Mu Zi’s hand.
The steamed bun was cold, but since Le Yao Yao was so hungry, she didn’t care. She took huge bites and ate very quickly.
But because she was eating so fast, she ended up choking. Fortunately, Xiao Mu Zi was well prepared and handed her a cup of water. After Le Yao Yao could breathe steadily again, she continued to eat.
However, this time, she was taking tiny bites instead.
The steamed bun was very small. It was definitely not enough to fill her. After she was done eating, Le Yao Yao clearly still wanted more. She stuck out her tongue and licked her red lips.
She looked like a gluttonous kitten. So cute!
