Chapter 61: It is time to drink the medicine
"Haha! Actually, I didn't do much. It was all thanks to Prince Rui!"
All of a sudden, Xiao Mu Zi seemed to realized there was still a big buddha standing behind him. He instantly turned around and got onto his knees as he continuously pounded his forehead onto the ground to show his gratitude towards the Prince.
Leng Jun Yu didn't have much expression on his face. It made it impossible for others to see through his thoughts. All he did was wave his hand and indicated it was alright for Xiao Mu Zi to get up.
"Alright, you may excuse yourself!"
At first, Xiao Mu Zi was a bit hesitant. But he raised his head to take a peek at Leng Jun Yu and immediately nodded to leave.
After all, Xiao Yao Zi's life was saved by Prince Rui. Xiao Yao Zi should be fine if he stayed here.
Xiao Mu Zi convinced himself and respectfully arched his body as he departed. In passing, he shut the door.
Once again, there was only Le Yao Yao and Leng Jun Yu left in the room.
Although this was the side room, it wasn't small. Obviously, it was incomparable compared to the master bedroom, but compared to the servant room that Le Yao Yao was currently living in, it was like comparing the sky and the ground.
Le Yao Yao gazed around her surroundings with her beautiful pupils. She noticed the highest quality red sandalwood chairs, the low decorative carved pattern cupboard, and the pearwood bed with a soft mattress that she was currently sleeping on. It was very comfortable…
Also, this "small" room was connected to the master bedroom. There was only a wooden door in between. All the nobility's master bedrooms were designed this way in order to make it easy for them to get service.
However, Le Yao Yao knew no servants had ever stayed in this room before. The King of Hell had always slept alone. So, why did he bring her here?!
Le Yao Yao was puzzled as her beautiful pupils continuously roamed around the room. She didn't dare to drop her gaze at the big buddha though.
After all, there were only two of them in the room. The atmosphere was kind of weird.
Earlier, she had misunderstood his intentions so she felt very guilty. She wanted to apologize, but the moment she saw his icy face, she couldn't say a word.
Therefore, her eyes were wandering everywhere in confusion.
However, since her eyelashes were slightly trembling and her beautiful pupils were flickering, it was clear that she was nervous.
Initially, Leng Jun Yu was very angry and annoyed at the little eunuch. But as he observed the delicate little eunuch's face, "his" thoughts were already displayed on his face even though he hadn't said a word.
Leng Jun Yu could tell "he" was nervous, conflicted, awkward, and remorseful. There were so many different type of emotions displayed on his face. It was so entertaining to watch that his mood improved drastically.
Haha. What a cute and awkward little eunuch!
Leng Jun Yu cracked a smile on the inside, but his handsome face remained emotionless. His cold dark pupils were as black as night; making it impossible for others to see through his thoughts.
Until, his eyes lightly swept across the room and landed on the bowl of medicine that was set aside on a shelf.
Leng Jun Yu pursed up his red lips and looked at the nervous awkward Le Yao Yao.
"It is time to drink the medicine."
Hearing Leng Jun Yu's words, Le Yao Yao was caught off guard. Her eyes quickly landed on him.
Prince Rui was as tall as a jade tree. He had his arms crossed and a casual pose. But even so, he was still so attractive that others wouldn't be able to shift their attention away.
In addition, the moment she stared at this handsome man, she subconsciously couldn't help but think of the hot spring scene. That perfect, buff body….
She must stop thinking about it. If she keeps going, she will have a nosebleed again!
Le Yao Yao was very emotional on the inside. Immediately, she lowered her glance and didn't dare to look up at Prince Rui anymore. Furthermore, she entirely disregarded what he said.
Since Le Yao Yao had lowered her head, Leng Jun Yu wasn't able to see her expression. Naturally, he had no idea that Le Yao Yao was currently imagining his body.
Or else, he wouldn't know what to think.
He could tell Le Yao Yao's thoughts were swimming elsewhere though. So, Leng Jun Yu's brows crinkled as he patiently repeated himself again.
"It is time to drink the medicine!"
This time, Leng Jun Yu clearly increased the volume of his voice. It thoroughly brought Le Yao Yao back to reality.
Le Yao Yao understood Leng Jun Yu's command as she lifted her head. First, she carefully took a glimpse at Prince Rui. Then, her eyes landed on the bowl of medicine.
She could see the light steam rising up in spirals. The medicine looked black and thick. Her cute face instantly frowned and a look of disgust appeared in her eyes.
She despised drinking medicine.
In the past, whenever she was ill, she would be ok with taking a needle, but she refused to drink the bitter Chinese medicine.
Because after drinking black thick bitter Chinese medicine, she would have a bitter taste in her mouth for a very long time. She wouldn't be able to taste anything.
So no matter what, she wasn't going to drink it.
But obviously, she wouldn't tell that to the Prince. After all, he was just being a caring soul, right? She could simply pour it out after he leaves.
After making up her mind, Le Yao Yao appeared extremely grateful as she looked into Prince Rui's eyes.
"Thank you, Prince Rui! Servant will wait until the medicine cools down before drinking."
Le Yao Yao thought the King of Hell would leave her alone after this statement. Surprisingly, he responded.
"The medicine is already cooled."
Leng Jun Yu could see through his plan with one look in his eyes. So, he was unwilling to accept any excuses.
Although his tone was still calm, there was a "you are not allowed to disobey" feel to it. It was as if she had no choice but to do as he says.
In regards to Prince Rui's pushy attitude, Le Yao Yao was speechless.
Why did he have to force her to drink it? The medicine is too bitter. She will not drink it no matter what!
Le Yao Yao was screeching on the inside, but she put on a "overwhelmed by favour from superior" expression. She looked like she was on the verge of shedding tears of gratitude.
"Thank you for caring about servant so much, Prince Rui! Servant will definitely serve Prince Rui with all his heart. Don't worry about the medicine, Prince Rui. Servant will drink it later.."
Le Yao Yao was proud of her acting. It was one of her strong points. So, she put on a brilliant performance. Her mouth was sweet as honey because she wanted to coax the King of Hell to leave so she could throw the medicine out.
After all, aside from looking disgustingly black, the medicine also smelled gruesome. Since it was next to her, the smell was making her stomach surge like a roaring sea!
So, Le Yao Yao blinked her eyes innocently and hoped the King of Hell will leave her alone.
But not only did the King of Hell stay, he began to walk towards her!
Prince Rui's tall body blocked out all the light in front of Le Yao Yao. She felt a shapeless pressure squishing her. Ohhhh so much pressure!
What does he want from me?
Seeing Le Yao Yao's confused expression, Leng Jun Yu didn't immediately speak. He reached out his elegant hand and lifted the bowl of warm Chinese medicine and slowly placed it against Le Yao Yao's lips.
"Put away your plan. Don't make me repeat my words three times."
This time, Leng Jun Yu's tone was clearly more harsh.
After all, if you're sick, you must drink medicine! Especially since "he" was so tiny. His physique was too weak. Yet, he dares not to drink medicine? He didn't want to live?
Leng Jun Yu was caringly angry as he narrowed his cold pupils and locked his glance at the little eunuch.
"He" was wearing the robe he had wore from a few years ago. At the time, he was only fourteen or fifteen. He was just starting to go through puberty, and was rather thin at the time.
Unexpectedly, the little eunuch was even smaller than his fourteen years old self. It looked as if he had stolen the white robe from an adult.
"He" had folded the sleeves up a few times, but the robe was still very loose on him. It looked very amusing and cute!
But this cute little guy was not obeying him. It was making him angry.
As Leng Jun Yu sized up Le Yao Yao, Le Yao Yao's face was frozen from fear from his action.
What does he mean? Could he have see-through eyes and see through my mind?
Woah! So scary!!
Hearing this, Le Yao Yao felt her scalp turning numb as her resentment towards the King of Hell increased.
Although he had good intentions, he was forcing her to do something she loathe the most. So she was very conflicted.
If she could, she honestly wanted to run away. But when she looked up at the King of Hell's gloomy face, she didn't have the courage…
So, with shaky hands and a twisted expression, Le Yao Yao took the bowl from Leng Jun Yu's hand and had the mindset of a hero charging at the enemy as she opened her tiny mouth and gulped down the medicine.
She felt an endless flow of bitterness in her mouth. The pain could not simply be described in words.
Also, the moment the bitter medicine entered her mouth, she instantly wanted to puke!
Wuwu, it was so gross!
When Le Yao Yao had finally finished the bowl of medicine, her facial expression was literally like a chrysanthemum.
At this moment, she wanted to burst into tears and crash her head against the wall to commit suicide..
On the contrary, her forced expression was pleasing to Prince Rui.
Prince Rui lowered his head as he watched the little eunuch's crumpled expression. He looked like he was extremely conflicted and suffering so much. It was as if he had forced poison down his throat. Thinking about it, Leng Jun Yu subconsciously smiled.
Was the medicine that bitter?
Leng Jun Yu wondered. He lightly sighed and popped a honey cube he had prepared ahead of time into Le Yao Yao's mouth.
