To my dear readers,
I finally finished two chapters. They were 6 pages single-spaced!! O_O. I wanted to make them longer so you guys wouldn’t have to suffer as much (and make the story move a bit faster). So please support me! Any amount of donations would be appreciated! I translated all day!!
Chapter 46: Nobody left the residence
Shi Cheng was initially very scared. But after thinking about it, he was the victim! Logically, Prince Rui was the one that had to compensate him. He wasn't the one that had done something wrong to his people. Why should he be so afraid?
So, Master Shi straightened his back and no longer stuttered.
But Shi Cheng didn't know that in everyone else's eyes, he looked like a piece of shit.
"Oh. So Master Shi had been beaten up."
Leng Jun Yu opened his red lips and spoke very slowly. He acted surprised, but it was very fake. Through Master Shi's eyes, it was obvious that Leng Jun Yu looked down on him and he didn't bother trying to hide it at all.
Immediately, Shi Cheng began to turn green and white from anger.
If the person facing him wasn't the King of Hell, Master Shi would have violently ran up and punched him already. He hated being looked down upon. Sadly, his opponent was the King of Hell. Regardless of how many rude and disgusted looks Prince Rui gave him, he didn't possess the heart of a bear and the courage of the leopard to fiercely confront him.
After all, the entire Heaven Yuan dynasty knew all about his ruthless and savage past achievements. The incident with the assassins from a few days ago had somehow already spreaded to the external world.
According to rumours, those that had escaped death from Liangshan foolishly thought they would be able to get revenge for their mountain thieves brothers by breaking into the Prince's residence; only to be destroyed by Prince Rui's bare hands.
In addition, not one of them survived. They were all slaughtered in different ways. Some had their arms broken, legs broken, brains exploded, hearts and intestines scooped out..
It was truly as frightening as it sounded.
So, even if Shi Cheng was smoking mad, he didn't dare to act impulsively.
But when it came to the concept of face, he was stubborn. Hence, he thickened his scalp and pushed his pig-headed face as he quibbled for himself.
"T-that was because while I was heading to the toilets, two people jumped me and covered me with a sack. I was caught off guard, that's why I got beat up…"
By the end of his sentence, Shi Cheng felt a bit pathetic. After all, he was beaten up and he had lost face! He was so angry. So, he continued.
"Prince Rui, please hand those two servants over!"
Shi Cheng was finished. He intently stared at the King of Hell. Since he had already made it so clear, he didn't believe Leng Jun Yu would not hand them over.
But Shi Cheng was wrong again. If it were anyone else, they probably would have acknowledged the fact that he was the Assistant minister's son and handed the servants over while apologizing continuously.
But this was Leng Jun Yu.
Leng Jun Yu didn't even look at him as he slightly narrowed his eyes and lightly asked the chief manager who was next to him.
"Chief Manager, who left the residence today?"
"To respond to the Prince, today, no one left the residence."
Hearing Leng Jun Yu's question, the chief manager's eyes flickered. After all, he didn't get the position of the chief manager for nothing. His mind was definitely more exquisite than the others. Plus, he had watched Leng Jun Yu grow up. How could he not understand his thoughts?
Simply based on the subtle sideway glance Leng Jun Yu gave him, the chief manager already knew what he had to do. Thus, he immediately responded respectfully.
In reality, they were both clearly lying with their eyes opened.
After all, this was the mighty Prince Rui's residence. Including servants and Imperial bodyguards, there were over a thousand people. Each day, there were countless of people entering and exiting the residence. How could nobody have gone out?
So everyone knew the chief manager was blatantly lying.
Anyone that was slightly clever would know that Leng Jun Yu and the chief manager were trying to cover up the servants. They weren't planning to hand them over.
Also, he was the Prince of the Heaven Yuan dynasty. He was only below one person and above ten thousand. Even the Emperor would listen to him from time to time. So out of the whole dynasty, who would dare to mess with him?!
But as it happened, not only did the person arguing had a pig face, he also had a pig brain. He refused to admit he had a pig brain and couldn't see through the implication. Instead, he advanced one step and started to shout at the chief manager.
"You dog slave, are you a dotard? How could nobody have left? Don't try to lie to me. Plus, this pendant is from your residence! Don't even try to deny!" Shi Cheng hollered.
Shi Cheng was making a huge scene. Li Kui was trying to stop him from the side, but he was too late.
Shi Cheng didn't get it because he was stupid. But Li Kui wasn't stupid. He saw through the implication right away.
If they make a big deal out of this, it wouldn't do any good for them. Even if Shi Cheng's father was the assistant minister and his sister was the Emperor's beloved concubine, so what?
The Heaven Yuan dynasty ultimately belonged to the Leng Clan. They were merely their servants.
Furthermore, the King of Hell had an unpredictable personality. He was moody and loved to kill. What if they pissed him off and he wanted to 'ka cha'? They would lose their heads!
The more he thought about it, the more afraid Li Kui became. Although he was skillful and often tyrantized others with Shi Cheng, currently, Shi Cheng's behaviour was causing him to freak out.
But Shi Cheng was too stupid to realize. All he cared about was getting revenge as he angrily glared and screamed at the chief manager.
After all, he had been pampered and spoiled since childhood. As a result, now he had an arrogant and oppressive personality. At home, whenever the servants angered him, he would punch and kick them.
So in Shi Cheng's eyes, chief manager was merely a slave.
Unexpectedly, after hearing Shi Cheng's words, Leng Jun Yu's eyes turned cruel. The temperature around the room instantly felt a few degrees.
"What makes you think you have the power to control my chief manager?" Leng Jun Yu lowly growled.
The arrogant Shi Cheng instantly turned all white and his clumsy fat body fell down backwards.
A few of his subordinates were squashed by him as they cried out in pain.
Now, Shi Cheng no longer dared to say another word. He was so shaken that he nearly peed his pants.
Although Leng Jun Yu only said one line, the killer aura he was emitting was serious.
Everyone was petrified that Leng Jun Yu was going to 'ka cha' all their heads. After all, Prince Rui eliminated all the mountain thieves of Liangshan in one night. He could definitely do the same to them.
Now, Shi Cheng was truly fearful. He didn't care about revenge or his face anymore. He allowed his subordinates to lift him up as they quickly left.
The King of Hell was too scary. The smartest thing to do was to leave now before he lose his life!
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao almost forgot her own anxieties and nearly stood up to clap and yell.
Oh God! He is such a coward! Wasn't he very arrogant earlier? The Prince only needed to say a few lines and he almost peed his pants!
Suddenly, Le Yao Yao felt an intense killer aura heading her way and it caused her scalp to turn numb.
Her heart was pounding, and she robotically turned to face the death glare.
When her eyes made contact with the frozen pupils, Le Yao Yao's heart dinged and her face almost collapsed.
The bastard had been dealt with, but how was she going to deal with the King of Hell?
Could this be the end of her life?
