To my dear readers,
This chapter took me so long due to the awkward Chinese syntax. It took me 5 minutes to read, but 3 hours to translate. I had to take multiple breaks because my head just didn’t want to think. My brain feels fried. =__=”
I wanted to translate another chapter but it is too much for me. So that’s all for today.
Chapter 23: He really enjoys teasing her
Le Yao Yao was trying to hold on. Seeing how Prince Rui didn’t appear to want to harm her, she decided to slowly straighten her back. But his following line shocked her like lightning. She was fried on the spot.
“No one has ever heard me play the flute…because those who have heard me are all dead…” He evilly grinned.
Le Yao Yao’s scalp felt numb and her face was frozen stiff. Her pupils were wide opened like copper coins, and they were filled with despair and anxiety.
It was as if the man in front of her had three heads and six arms.
Leng Jun Yu was actually pleased by Le Yao Yao’s reaction.
He deepened his smile, and his red lips opened. Once again, his hoarse and raspy voice came out.
“You’re really afraid of me, aren’t you? I’m not a threatening beast nor do I have three heads and six arms. Why are you so scared?!” He teased.
Hearing Leng Jun Yu’s words, Le Yao Yao’s brows knitted and she felt wronged on the inside.
Not be afraid of him?!
Is he nuts?!
Could she tell him he’s scarier than a threatening beast?
Obviously not. And she wouldn’t dare.
So, Le Yao Yao continued her awkward position. Her scalp was numb; her facial expression was frozen; her mouth was slightly opened as if she wanted to say something, but it kept opening and closing. It was as if she had cotton stuck in her throat. She couldn’t make a sound.
She was only an inch apart from his gorgeous face. Although Prince Rui appeared to be smiling, it was a smile yet not a smile. He kind of looked like he was ridiculing her. He was just like a savage beast. A beast that had seized its prey but didn’t want to end its life immediately. Instead, he wanted to torment it a bit. He enjoyed seeing and sensing the fear from an innocent animal.
She was the innocent animal and he was the savage beast.
Although she was mad and furious, she didn’t dare to resist. And she didn’t have the ability to resist.
This morning, he managed to kill dozens of big and sturdy assassins. In addition, he slaughtered them all differently using nothing but his bare hands! That was sufficient to prove his martial arts abilities. As a woman who didn’t even have the strength to kill a chicken, she was screwed.
The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the more terrified she became. However, she was a person with a backbone.
She didn’t want to be tormented like a prey and then killed. She would rather have her opponent kill her straight away.
So, Le Yao Yao gritted her teeth and the fear that was in her pupils was immediately replaced by a look of determination. She looked like someone who had made up her mind on an important issue.
Her quick change in reaction astonished Leng Jun Yu.
Because, he didn’t understand.
A moment ago, the little eunuch had fear written all over his face. But now, his eyes were emitting a ray of determination.
It was as if his eyes had gathered all the moonlight inside of it. It was so clear and dazzling! Just like the sunlight from March.
While Leng Jun Yu was wowing over Le Yao Yao’s pupils, her next line caught him off guard.
“Just kill me!” She blurted.
If he was going to play with her like a monkey, why don’t she just let him end it?
After all, she had angered a monster; which meant her life was surely over. Wouldn’t it be better to just die than to be hanging by a thread every second?
Leng Jun Yu stared blankly at her. Then, his cold red luscious lips curled deeper and deeper. Finally, he burst out into low laughter.
Leng Jun Yu laughed because this was the first time he had encountered such a silly little eunuch.
Originally, Le Yao Yao was preparing to die. But hearing his laugh infuriated her.
Her pale white face was turning a bit pink due to anger. Currently, she looked like a ripe peach; super cute and alluring.
But she didn’t know that.
She only knew she really hated it when Prince Rui laughed at her. Because she felt like he was mocking her!
So, Le Yao Yao closed her eyes. If she closed her eyes, she didn’t have to see his face!
Seeing how Le Yao Yao closed his eyes because he didn’t want to look at him, Leng Jun Yu grinned even deeper.
Originally, he wanted to tease the tiny eunuch. He didn’t expect him to react so dramatically.
His fearlessness, beautiful eyes, and multiple expressions all captivated him. It made him….want to devour him. (end of Ch.25 raws)
Right now, it was obvious that the little eunuch was afraid to die; yet he was acting tough. Leng Jun Yu decided to forgive “him”.
After all, there was a degree to how much one should push. If he went overboard, it wouldn’t be good.
He looked down at the small face that was the size of his palm; the skin was as white and smooth as jade. Underneath the moonlight, it even looked like it was sparkling and translucent.
His five features were perfection!
His brows were curved like crescent moons; eyelashes were long; nose was small and exquisite. Lastly, Leng Jun Yu’s eyes subconsciously landed on top of the perfectly outlined mouth.
Those cherry red lips were slightly sticking up. They looked plump, moisturized and sweet!
Prince Rui recalled the kiss from this morning, and his heart tugged. It was a subtle feeling.
It was like something was trying to germinate inside of him. His calm lake was being disturbed by a tiny rock. And it was creating a lot of ripples…
It made his heart pound…and he felt bewitched….
Leng Jun Yu had no idea, but when he gazed at Le Yao Yao, his eyes had turned scorching hot…
There was some obsession involved…
In the end, he slowly lowered his handsome face towards the cute and exquisite face..inch by inch.
