To my dear readers,
I only have one chapter for today. But we’re up to Chapter 39 of the raws. Sorry for being slow. I’m working on 3-4 projects (not all translations related) right now so I am very stressed. I will have another 2 chapters later on the week though.
Le Yao Yao gets fascinated so easily. lol
Chapter 31: He’s a picky eater
Hearing Leng Jun Yu’s words, Le Yao Yao lightly bit her lower lips as she secretly took a peek at his handsome face. She noticed Leng Jun Yu’s eyes revealed a flash of hopelessness. She was surprised.
After all, she had already done so many wrong things. How come this man still hadn’t punished her? Instead, he just looked hopeless.
This didn’t sound like the King of Hell from the rumours.
While Le Yao Yao was still unconvinced by her heart, Leng Jun Yu spoke again.
“This time is an exception. I’ll do it myself now. Take a look and get it right next time.”
Le Yao Yao whispered and Leng Jun Yu began to fasten the belt himself.
At this moment, Le Yao Yao noticed how nice Prince Rui’s hands looked.
His ten fingers were long and delicate. His joints were clearly distinct. Even his nails were nicely trimmed. He was like a piece of art work in a gallery. She couldn’t stop admiring.
Prince Rui’s actions were very elegant. In no time, he had tightly clasped the belt onto himself.
“You saw clearly?”
As he fastened his belt, Prince Rui rearranged his appearance again before speaking to Le Yao Yao.
“Mm. Your servant saw.”
Le Yao Yao was still whispering. She realized she was very stupid. It was just a simple knot, yet she didn’t know how to do it.
Le Yao Yao was annoyed at herself. She noticed Leng Jun Yu giving her a sideway glance as he left the room. Seeing this, she naturally followed.
Once they left the room and made a turn, they were in the hall.
The interior decorations of the hall was extremely luxurious.
The green stone floor was so shiny that your reflection could be seen. On top of the floor was a knitted carpet of a dragon.
On both sides were light muslin curtains, and by the windows were various antique vases and jade artifacts that were skillfully polished. Underneath the sunlight, they appeared glossy.
In the centre of the room was a carved black sandalwood round table with over ten dishes that smelled, looked, and tasted great.
There were swallow’s nest congee, shark fin soup, spring rolls, all sorts of dumplings as well as desserts…
There were so much to choose from! It was too much for Le Yao Yao’s eyes. She wanted to drool so bad.
After all, ever since she woke up, she hadn’t eaten anything yet! Now, her stomach was empty and defenseless. It was really causing her gluttonous worm to come out.
But Le Yao Yao didn’t dare to reveal her thoughts. Since, right next to the table stood a senior big Buddha!
Who knew when the chief manager had arrived and waited for Prince Rui. The moment Prince Rui walked in, he politely greeted him.
“Prince, was your sleep pleasant last night?”
“Mm. It was alright.”
Leng Jun Yu lightly nodded. Then, he swung his robe on one side as he sat down and lifted the bowl and chopsticks.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao stood on one corner far away.
After all, Prince Rui was having breakfast. She didn’t have to feed him. Plus, she was starving half to death. If she got any closer, the aroma of the food was going to make her stomach grumble. She didn’t want to embarrass herself again.
So, Le Yao Yao silently stood on one side. However, since she was bored, her eyes wandered everywhere. She looked around her surroundings and observed her environment.
Until suddenly, she heard a crisp slapping sound. It caused her heart to go cold and it instantly broke her train of thought. She quickly turned towards the direction of the sound.
She saw that Leng Jun Yu was no longer eating. He had placed down his bowl but his face remained emotionless; no one could read his mind.
But looking at the dishes, it appeared he only took a bite.
Seeing this, the chief manager immediately went up to him and caringly asked.
“Prince, today’s dishes are not fitting for your appetite?”
Leng Jun Yu used a handkerchief and gracefully wiped his mouth as he responded.
Hearing this, Le Yao Yao looked at the table that was filled with delicious food that had barely been touched. She wanted to jump out and holler at him.
What a wasteful man!
He was only one person, yet he gets to have over ten dishes for breakfast! Plus, each of the dishes were expensive as hell. Swallow’s nest, shark fin stuff. The cost of this meal could feed a normal person for several months!
Yet, here he was. He had barely touched the food and said it wasn’t fitting for his appetite. What’s wrong with his stomach?
Le Yao Yao silently cursed. Her eyes were intently focused on the dishes.
If only she could eat them instead…
As she was thinking, the chief manager’s voice entered her ears once more.
“What would Prince like to eat? Your servant will instantly sent the orders down.”
“Mm. What to eat?”
Leng Jun Yu used one hand to support his chin and the other to tap on the table. He looked like he was deep in thought.
Eventually, he said, “Today, I want to eat something a bit sour and spicy.”
“Alright. Your wishes are my command!”
The chief manager bowed and quickly left. Shortly after, there were rush steps coming from the doorway.
Following the steps, was a mouth watering sour hot smell.
It was pickled cabbage fish!
Le Yao Yao could recognize the smell without even looking at the item.
Because ever since she was little, she loved sour and spicy food! She never got tired of eating it!
