To my dear readers,
Not much happened in these two chapters, but it’s going to get more interesting soon!! After Chapter 20, I’m going to combine the chapters and make them longer because these chapters are too short. This means that my chapters will no longer be the same as the Chinese novel. This is actually not good for me because technically I would get less views, but I just don’t want you guys to go through so many chapters before any of the juicy stuff happens. Please support me by donating if you can. Every dollar makes a difference!!
Chapter 17: Woken up due to hunger
Xiao Mu Zi watched her from the side and couldn’t help but exclaim.
“Xiao Yao Zi, you’re so good looking!”
“Haha, you don’t look bad yourself!”
Hearing someone praise her made Le Yao Yao felt great. Although she no longer looked the same (and was dressed as an eunuch), she was still a woman. All women loved to be pretty; she was no exception.
While she was thinking, Xiao Mu Zi continued.
“Today, you were quite fortunate. Luckily Prince Rui saved you. If not, I would probably never see you again…”
Xiao Mu Zi was turning emotional. The rim of his eyes were starting to turn red.
After all, both he and Xiao Yao Zi entered the Prince Rui’s residence at the same time. Their friendship was real.
Seeing Xiao Mu Zi’s reaction made Le Yao Yao feel warm. She quietly decided, “From now on, Xiao Mu Zi will forever be her family. No one is allowed to hurt him. If they do, she will fight them until death!”
After making her pledge, Le Yao Yao seemed to remember something as her eyes narrowed.
She finally remembered what had happen.
Originally, the King of Hell’s arrow was pointing towards her. But somehow, when the arrow was about to strike her, it curved and entered Ba Hu’s body!
Although she didn’t die, she nearly died from fright.
Because she saw a living person getting an arrow shot through his heart. How accurate could he get?
At this moment, she could still remember Ba Hu’s bulging eyes; as if he was in shock.
Le Yao Yao felt like she was traumatized.
Although the King of Hell saved her, she wasn’t the slightest bit grateful. All she felt was fear.
If it was possible, she never wanted to see him again! Never in her life!
Le Yao Yao made another pledge. But things tend to turn out the opposite for her. The Heavens always want to make her life difficult!
Since Le Yao Yao only ate a small bun, she woke up due to hunger.
She touched her flat tummy and slowly sat up from the bed that was as hard as a rock.
She looked out the window and stared at the moon. Since they didn’t have clocks here, she had no idea what time it was. But seeing how the moon was inclining to the east, she assumed it was around two in the morning.
She realized she had been sleeping from noon until now. She slept for so long that her bones were all sore.
After all, she had never slept on such a hard bed all her life!
Also, she only ate a drumstick and a small bun for the entire day. By now, she had no idea which intestines they were in. She was starving to death!
Xiao Mu Zi’s room was next to hers. But it was so late. Even if she woke him up, he had no status in the Palace; meaning he definitely wouldn’t be able to get her food. So, Le Yao Yao decided to drop that idea and continued to sleep. She’ll just eat breakfast in the morning.
But because she slept for so long already, she couldn’t fall back asleep.
So, she quietly snuck out of bed and put her shoes on. Then, she pushed the sliding door open and walked out.
The bright moon was dangling up in the sky while the stars were glowing. The stars looked like sparkling diamonds that were scattered across the horizon. The beauty had no limit.
The cold moonlight was emitting a milky white light; it gently spilled across the land and made the atmosphere appear very mysterious and charming.
