Chapter 56: Xiao Mu Zi freaks out
Her head was so heavy, and she was so cold. She really wanted to sleep…
Currently, Le Yao Yao felt awful. Her eyelids were gradually became heavier and heavier.
After continuously trying to keep her eyes opened, Le Yao Yao could no longer fight the wave of dizziness. In no time, she had fell into a whirlpool of darkness.
Everywhere was pitch black. Le Yao Yao didn't know where she was. She felt like she was in an abyss of suffering.
All of a sudden, she would be freezing like she had fell into an ice cave. But then, she would be burning like she was standing in the middle of the desert. Above her head was the scorching Sun -it was emitting excessive heat and roasting her. She felt like she was going to turn into a roasted pig..
Le Yao Yao couldn't stand this hot and cold alternation. She wanted to scream and sob.
But it was as if there was a cotton stuck in her throat. Regardless of how hard she tried, she couldn't make a sound.
Furthermore, her throat felt like it was caught on fire. It was so painful.
Oh God! Just let her die! Death would be a better alternative.
While Le Yao Yao was begging from within, she felt her body swaying continuously; as if someone was shaking her.
Someone seemed to be yelling in her ears, but she was too exhausted to react. Soon, she ended up in darkness once again.
Seeing how Le Yao Yao wouldn't wake up, Xiao Mu Zi was freaking out.
He had just finished all his tasks for the day and he was waiting for Le Yao Yao in the cafeteria, but Le Yao Yao never showed up. Xiao Mu Zi was so distressed that he felt like his soul was going to leave his body.
Afterwards, he heard from Xiao Li Zi that Le Yao Yao had been punished by kneeling. In the end, he was called to serve the Prince.
Xiao Mu Zi was worried that Prince Rui was going to torture Le Yao Yao. Unfortunately, no one was allowed to enter the Prince's room without his permission. Xiao Mu Zi could only wait.
Cook Li tried to comfort Xiao Mu Zi and told him to eat first. Cook Li said he would save the leftovers for Xiao Yao Zi.
Although there was a rule that stated meals could only be eaten during certain times, Cook Li was going to save Le Yao Yao food regardless since Le Yao Yao had done so much for him. He made a pledge to Xiao Mu Zi and smacked his chest. As long as he was alive, he will never let Xiao Yao Zi starve.
Hearing this, Xiao Mu Zi felt a bit more relieved. After he finished eating, he rushed back to the dormitory. His room was next to Le Yao Yao's, so he wanted to see if he had returned yet.
But after knocking for a long time, there was no reaction from the other side. Just as Xiao Mu Zi thought Le Yao Yao wasn't there, a strange sound came from within the room.
It sounded like a painful groan. Xiao Mu Zi instantaneously thought of Le Yao Yao's corporate punishment, so he lifted his leg and kicked the door open.
Since they were eunuchs with the least amount of seniority, their living conditions were bound to be poor. But their living conditions were already much better in comparison to other servants that worked outside of the residence. For the servants outside, it wouldn't be uncommon if they had over a dozen people crammed into a room. At least, in Prince Rui's residence, they all had their own individual rooms. However, since their rooms were only a few square feet wide, there was only sufficient space to fit a plain wooden bed and a crude table.
Anyhow, currently, Xiao Mu Zi was imagining the worse case scenario. Perhaps Le Yao Yao may have gotten into a mishap? So he smashed the door open without thinking.
But he absolutely did not expect Le Yao Yao to be right behind the door. His kick sent Le Yao Yao flying across the room.
Xiao Mu Zi was so horrified that he felt like his throat was going to jump out; especially when he noticed Le Yao Yao was scorching hot and his face was abnormally red.
Le Yao Yao was having a high fever, and it was the severe type!
Xiao Mu Zi instantly turned pale and his eyes were filled with fear.
A few years ago, he had a younger brother that had perished due to high fever. Currently, Le Yao Yao's situation was exactly the same as his brother's..
Seeing this, Xiao Mu Zi shook Le Yao Yao again. But Le Yao Yao remained unconscious. Hence, he quickly bolted out of the room.
Because, right now, only the chief manager could save Le Yao Yao.
He must find the chief manager and tell him Le Yao Yao's condition so that he will send a physician to save him. Or else, or else…
He can't let anything happen to Le Yao Yao!
It was raining very heavily outside.
In the room, one of the windows were opened. Wind and rain entered through the open window and a stream of cold air could be felt..
Currently, Leng Jun Yu was tossing and turning in bed as he listened to the sounds of the rain.
Leng Jun Yu was feeling very frantic, stressed, and uneasy. He wasn't sure if it was because of the massage incident or his concern for his people's wellbeing. Whatever the reason was, he felt like something bad had happened…
He had never experienced this type of dread before. He was stumped.
Did something terrible actually happen and he was unaware?
After tossing and turning a few more times, Leng Jun Yu couldn't take his fidgety heart any longer and draped a thin robe over his shoulders as he stepped outside the room.
It was pitch dark outside; as if it was the mouth of a demon. The icy cold rain wouldn't stop and the temperature had dropped drastically since the morning.
Leng Jun Yu aimlessly walked. His steps were light. If one wasn't paying attention, one wouldn't notice his existence.
An unknown amount of time later, Leng Jun Yu finally realized he was no longer in his courtyard.
The residence was designed in a rotating manner. So the winding corridors* twisted and turned to all areas of the residence. Underneath the winding corridors, he wouldn't get wet.*This is what the winding corridors looked like in the past.
Right now, Leng Jun Yu was standing in the servants' area. In front of him was the chief manager's residence.
Although this area was for the servants, since the chief manager had so much authority and seniority in the residence, his courtyard was very refined.
Currently, it was dead silent in the middle of the night. Leng Jun Yu snapped out of his faze and decided to return to his courtyard. Unexpectedly, someone was shouting anxiously from inside of the chief manager's room.
Since it was so quiet aside from the heavy rain, and Leng Jun Yu had good hearing, he could hear the entire conversation even though he was far away.
But Leng Jun Yu wasn't interested. Hence, he turned around and began to head back.
However, just as he took a few steps, he heard the three words "Xiao Yao Zi" that gave him shivers up his spine. His legs immediately froze midway.
