Chapter 60: You scoundrel!
Although he felt like he had never bullied "him", Leng Jun Yu still said those words because he wanted to make Le Yao Yao feel better. After he spoke, Le Yao Yao's brows began to relax again. Seeing this, Leng Jun Yu felt relieved.
With his other hand, he lightly felt Le Yao Yao's forehead. It was no longer hot; looks like "he" will wake up shortly.
Leng Jun Yu removed his hand. But unexpectedly, he accidentally brushed against the wet fabric. Seeing this, he frowned once again.
Thinking back, when he had arrived at Le Yao Yao's room, his door was wide open, and "he" was on the ground. Most likely, the rain had gotten inside and soaked his clothing.
But now, "he" was ill. How could he wear wet clothing?! It might worsen his condition.
Thinking of this, Leng Jun Yu's huge hand immediately headed towards Le Yao Yao's waist belt. He wanted to change his clothes.
Unexpectedly, at this moment, the sound asleep Le Yao Yao gradually opened her drowsy eyes.
Before she could figure out where she was or what had happened, she noticed a long arm reaching towards her waist belt. He was about to untie it.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao felt an explosion in her mind; as if a thunderbolt had suddenly appeared in her clear sky. She froze for a second and then immediately screamed.
"Scoundrel! What are you doing?!"
Damn him! W-what was h-he doing?!
Could he have discovered something? So he wanted to personally clarify for himself?
The moment she thought of this possibility, panic was also mixed with her outrage.
She reached over and grabbed the blanket next to her as she wrapped herself in it.
Then, she rolled over, and now she was literally like a silkworm as she burrowed herself within the blanket.
Le Yao Yao's extreme reaction caused Leng Jun Yu's mouth to twitch. Then, he slowly pulled back his stiff hand.
Originally, he had good intentions. He wanted to change the little eunuch's clothes so that "he" could sleep better and not get sick. Yet, his kindness was totally unappreciated. Instead, Le Yao Yao stared at him with fear and hesitation; as if he was an immoral and despicable person.
Immoral and despicable person?!
Now, Leng Jun Yu's facial expression was even more fierce. His voice was cold like the bitter wind from the twelfth lunar month.
"What do you think I was going to do to you?!"
Hearing the King of Hell's temperatureless question, Le Yao Yao's face turned white.
Prince Rui's expression was so intimidating, and his aura was like the black clouds that were pressing down on a battlefield. She was scared shitless.
At the same time, she didn't dare to retort, "Well, if you didn't have ill intentions, why were you reaching to untie my waist belt?"
Le Yao Yao kept those words to herself. But suddenly, she realized her current environment was odd.
She gazed around the room and felt confused.
Because, this was not her room. It was actually the small room next to Prince Rui's. She recognized it because she had tidied it this morning.
But why was she here? She clearly recalled while she was serving Prince Rui, she had dashed back into her room because of the nosebleed incident. Afterwards, she felt really dizzy and fainted.
Everything else was a blur.
For a period of time, she felt really terrible. Was she sick?!
But even if she was sick, why was she here?! And why was the King of Hell here?
There were so many unanswered questions in her mind. But Le Yao Yao was not stupid. After thinking more deeply, she connected the dots. So, Le Yao Yao licked her somewhat dry red lips and carefully worded her question.
"Prince Rui, was servant very sick?!"
Although she felt fine at the moment, the dreadful pain was still fresh in her memory.
Leng Jun Yu grunted with his nose. That was his response.
Leng Jun Yu's face was still frightening to look at, but at least he answered her question. Le Yao Yao swallowed her saliva as she continued on.
"Then, did Prince Rui bring servant here?"
Initially, Le Yao Yao had no recognition, but now that she thought about it, she remembered while she was unconscious, there was something warm wrapping her. Thinking back, she was probably carried in here. And the person who carried her was probably….
At this moment, Le Yao Yao was curiously staring at Leng Jun Yu.
Sensing her glance, Leng Jun Yu's face crumpled slightly as he lightly humpt and avoided her eye contact.
It looked like he didn't want to respond to Le Yao Yao's question. But based on his reaction, Le Yao Yao already knew the answer.
Seeing how awkward the King of Hell was acting, Le Yao Yao suddenly felt like the King of Hell was really cute.
Most of her fear vanished from her pupils, and she made a *yi* sound as she cracked into a smile.
After spending a few days together and getting to know the King of Hell, she realized that the King of Hell wasn't actually that bad.
Although there were times when he was super super scary, and his aura was suppressive, but there was a cute side to him!
Wait a second. She actually thought the King of Hell was cute? Was her mind damaged from the illness?
As she thought to herself, Le Yao Yao noticed the King of Hell getting up and going back into his room.
Seeing this, Le Yao Yao felt relieved as she sighed.
But in a few moments, the King of Hell was back. In addition, he came back with a white robe in which he threw at her.
She couldn't see anything, but she inhaled and recognized that familiar ambergris scent.
Le Yao Yao was surprised as she pulled the white gown off her face.
Why did the King of Hell throw her a gown? Did he want her to work even though she was ill? What a cruel person!
As Le Yao Yao resented from within, the King of Hell's expressionless tone entered her ears.
"Since you're already awake, change it yourself!"
Change it herself?!
Could the King of Hell have wanted to…
Thinking of this, Leng Yao Yao subconsciously felt the clothes she was wearing. She realized the fabric was wet.
Immediately, Le Yao Yao understood.
Ohhhh. Turns out the King of Hell only wanted to change her wet clothing. Yet, she had misunderstood him and almost accused him…
Now, Le Yao Yao felt very guilty towards the King of Hell. She remorsefully turned to him and wanted to apologize. But before she could say anything, he had shut the door and left.
"Aaiii…was he mad?!"
Le Yao Yao's red lips pouted as she stared at the closed wooden carved door. But she didn't think much. While no one was around, she quickly took off her wet outfit.
Earlier, she didn't seem to notice, but now that she was aware she was wearing wet clothing, it really felt uncomfortable.
So she speedily put on the clean white robe. But instantly, a few wrinkles appeared on Le Yao Yao's forehead.
Because, the robe was clearly not her size. It made her look like she was a child that had stolen an adult's robe.
After rolling up the sleeves a few times, the robe was still very loose on her. She looked out of place!
While Le Yao Yao was hopelessly observing herself, suddenly someone pushed open the carved door.
Aside from the King of Hell, Le Yao Yao also saw –
"Xiao Mu Zi?!"
The moment Le Yao Yao saw Xiao Mu Zi, her face beamed.
Seeing how Le Yao Yao exclaimed and appeared fine, Xiao Mu Zi felt a breath of relief.
He carried the bowl of medicine in one hand as he swiftly sped towards Le Yao Yao's direction.
His face was covered with joy. After all, Le Yao Yao almost scared him to death.
Earlier, his face was boiling hot and regardless of how many times he kept calling him, he wouldn't wake up. His situation was the same as his brother's.
At the time, his family was poor and couldn't afford to get a physician. As a result, his brother passed away. He didn't want Le Yao Yao to follow his brother's footsteps.
So, he bravely ran to beg the chief manager. He wanted the chief manager to save Yao Yao. But even if the chief manager was willing to help, with the storm situation and all the closed clinics, there was no one that could save her.
Plus, in the Prince's residence, servants' lives were as worthless as grass.
Yet, at this crucial moment, Prince Rui suddenly appeared and asked the chief manager to get the Imperial Physician from the Palace!
To him, that was unbelievable. But most importantly, Yao Yao was fine now. He was relieved.
Thinking of this, Xiao Mu Zi placed the bowl of medicine on the table. Since he had just boiled it, it was very hot!
"Yao Yao, after the medicine cools down, remember to drink it. You have no idea how frightened I was when your fever was burning! Regardless of how much I shook you, you wouldn't wake up. I almost died from anxiety…"
Le Yao Yao knew Xiao Mu Zi cared about her a lot, and she was very grateful. After all, this was a slave-owning society. As servants, they weren't seen as valuable at all. But Xiao Mu Zi truly cared about her wellbeing. How could she not be grateful?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao sincerely smiled at Xiao Mu Zi.
"Xiao Mu Zi, thank you! I'm so glad you were around!"
