To my dear readers,
I would like to thank Eleanor W for her donation to me! Thank you so much for your support!!! I really really really appreciate it. Donations make a huge difference. ❤
P.S. I have combined the chapters together so this is actually 2 chapters :P. The author really takes her/his time in developing the story. But we’re slowly getting to the juicy part! Be patient, my dear. It’s going to be a long ride!
Chapter 42: Beat the fattie!
This man was dripping in gold and silver (not literally). It was as if he was afraid people wouldn't know he was rich. Out of ten fingers, nine of them had some type of golden material or stone on it.
He was wearing a thick golden chain around his neck. He had such tacky taste. Underneath the sunlight, he immediately became the focal point of everyone present. What a breathtaking view –
He looked like a shiny golden pig!
It was shocking that he dared to stand out so much on such a busy street. He wasn't scared of getting robbed?!
Afterwards, Le Yao Yao found out from the other tables that this shiny golden fat big was actually the eldest son of the assistant minister, Shi Cheng. Everyone called him Master Shi!
Hearing this name, Le Yao Yao nearly burst into laughter.
Shi? (sounds the same as shit in Chinese)
What a suitable name for the pig!
Then, Master Shi and his cruel-looking driver got off the horse carriage. Master Shi was fanning himself with his gold fan as he arrogantly swayed into the restaurant.
Initially, Le Yao Yao already had a terrible impression of this 'Master Shi'. After he came in, she was even more disgusted by him! He took advantage of the fact that his father was rich and had a 'My father is Li Gang' face as he ate an overlord meal. In addition, he sexually harassed the young girl who was selling flowers in public. Seeing this, Le Yao Yao was boiling mad!
Although the public despised the actions of this rich second generation and wanted to save the beauty, they didn't dare to act because Master Shi had a fierce-looking bodyguard protecting him. Plus, he had the support of his father; a government official. Hence, no one dared to utter a word. They were furious on the inside, but they couldn't afford to fight this guy. In the end, they were all cowards.
Of course, Le Yao Yao couldn't stand it either. But she wasn't the impulsive type.
After all, she knew she had short arms and legs. She wouldn't be able to fight or run. If she tried to step in right now, she would definitely die a painful death.
So, Le Yao Yao held back. She carefully observed Master Shi and noticed that he continuously poured tea for himself.
Based on how much tea he was drinking, he will absolutely need to use the toilet later. She didn't believe the guy next to him was going to follow him to the toilet too. So after paying for the bill, Le Yao Yao asked the waiter where the toilets were located. Then, she found a sack and a wooden bat and crouched behind a wicker basket. Later, when Master Shi goes to the toilet, they were going to put the sack over his head and beat him up!
Deep down, Le Yao Yao hated arrogant people the most. When she was in junior high, she was once bullied by a rich fat second generation kid. At the time, the fat boy was wielding on the fact that he came from a wealthy background; so he feared no consequences as he bullied and humiliated the small and the weak.
But the fat boy didn't know that her father was actually the school director. So, he decided to target her. Unexpectedly, she ended up beating him instead. She even knocked off two of his teeth.
Afterwards, her father scolded her in public; but privately, he patted her leg and said good job!
That type of arrogant rich second generation deserved to get beat up!
As she thought about her past, Le Yao Yao felt a surge of adrenaline.
This 'Master Shi' was even more cocky than the fat boy. She hated him. He nearly killed her today! If she didn't beat him, it would be against Heaven's law!
So, Le Yao Yao and Xiao Mu Zi held onto the sack and wooden bat as they waited. As expected, after drinking a pot of tea, the fattie came out.
Le Yao Yao was glad the big guy didn't follow him.
Without delay, Le Yao Yao gave Xiao Mu Zi a signal. Just as Master Shi was strutting his big round belly towards them, Le Yao Yao grasped the opportunity as she leaped like a spring and accurately threw the sack over his head.
Le Yao Yao yelled. As for Xiao Mu Zi, he was not confused during this crucial moment. He ran over in a whoosh and joined Le Yao Yao as they violently punched and kicked the fattie.
Perhaps Xiao Mu Zi was furious because he was recalling the horse carriage accident that had nearly happened, because he was very aggressive and harsh with his attacks. Don't underestimate him for his size. He may be small, but he was quite strong. Le Yao Yao was actually quite impressed.
If they were in a different setting, she would definitely be clapping and cheering Xiao Mu Zi on!
If Xiao Mu Zi wasn't an eunuch and practiced martial arts instead, he would surely be able to find a decent job such as an Imperial bodyguard in the future!
Although these thoughts were running through her head, Le Yao Yao was still able to multitask. The fattie was in so much pain, he wouldn't stop screaming for his daddy and mommy. In addition, he was making slaughtered pig noises. It was quite deafening in this narrow alley…
Soon, Le Yao Yao felt like it was time to go. If they continued beating him, they might get caught. So, she gave Xiao Mu Zi another eye signal and the two of them quickly ran off to another alleyway.
"Haha! Amazing! That was amazing!"
After they had escaped from the crime scene and entered the big streets, Le Yao Yao's smile became even brighter.
Since they went through such an intense exercise, her clothes were in disarray and her hair was a mess. But it didn't affect her cheerful mood at all.
Currently, her pretty face was flushed from running. She looked like a very alluring ripe peach.
"Xiao Yao Zi, I can't believe you can smile. I'm scared to death. Luckily no one saw us. If not…"
Xiao Mu Zi's reaction was the opposite of Le Yao Yao. His face showed signs of fear and distress.
"Aiya, Xiao Mu Zi, how come you have so little guts? We've already beat him up. Plus, no one else knows about it. Why are you so worried? Also…."
Le Yao Yao purposely paused as she raised her eyebrows and teasingly glanced at Xiao Mu Zi. "Don't you feel great beating that fattie up?"
"Eh. Umm… hehe. I do feel great!"
Hearing Xiao Yao Zi's words, Xiao Mu Zi couldn't help but reached his hand out and touch the back of his head. He truthfully smiled.
Honestly, Xiao Mu Zi had been living in poverty all his life. Even though he had been sold to the Prince's residence, he was still an eunuch of the lowest level. Since the beginning, he always had to be respectful and accept the fact that he was at the bottom of the bottom.
Even if it was clearly not his fault, if others said he was at fault, he wouldn't dare to argue. He could only accept.
So, while they were beating up the fattie, Xiao Mu Zi felt like he could release all his internal anger on him.
Now, he felt much more at ease.
Le Yao Yao's smile deepened when she saw Xiao Mu Zi's smile. She looked up at the sky and realized it was almost 5pm. Thus, they quickened their pace and headed back to the Prince's residence.
Originally, they thought they did a flawless job and that no one would figure out it was them. But unexpected things tend to happen…
