Chapter 62: From now on, you will live here
Originally, Le Yao Yao wanted to die from the bitterness in her mouth. Suddenly, Prince Rui stuffed something in her mouth. Before she could react, she tasted sweetness. It was so sweet that it made the bitter taste go away!
She was slightly shocked, but she instantly started to chew with a big mouthful.
After she was done chewing, she realized it was a honey cube!
But, the most startling thing was, the person who stuffed the honey cube into her mouth was the frozen faced, terrifying Prince Rui??
How come he had a honey cube on him? Does he like to eat honey cubes? Or did he purposely prepare the honey cube for her?
Le Yao Yao was confused as she looked up. She happened to catch the King of Hell's somewhat pink cheeks.
It was kind of awkward…and cute…
The King of Hell was blushing!
Le Yao Yao's stunned expression made Leng Jun Yu felt very awkward.
Honestly, he didn't even know why he did it.
For the first time ever, when he saw Xiao Mu Zi walking in with the thick black bowl of medicine, he went out of his way to order a servant to bring him some honey cubes. He was afraid that the little eunuch wouldn't be able to stand the bitter taste…
As expected, he was correct. Leng Jun Yu was glad he was well prepared.
As the little eunuch chewed on the honey cube, his crumpled face began to relax. However, now, he was staring at him in disbelief. It was making him feel very embarrassed and uncomfortable.
After all, he had always treated others very coldly. He had never done something so caring and attentive for anyone else.
In outsiders' point of view, he was more frightening than the actual King of Hell. They feared him. They respected him. By his side, they were always scared witless and on guard; as if he was a fierce beast that would devour them at any moment.
On the other hand, the little eunuch's eyes were very beautiful and clear.
It was as if he was the clean spring water; pure and penetrating.
"He" was like the only clean water left on this filthy Earth; the only area that hadn't been contaminated.
Leng Jun Yu couldn't help but like him…and envy him..
Many believed he was fortunate and blessed to have been born a royalty. One must have cultivated many lives of good fortune before they were able to live his life. However, whether it was good fortune or not depend on the eye of the beholder.
Honestly, there were many times he envied those with an ordinary life.
While Leng Jun Yu was sighing from within, suddenly Le Yao Yao lifted up the blanket and got off the bed.
Seeing this, Leng Jun Yu frowned and asked, "What are you doing?"
"Eh..umm..servant is very grateful to the Prince for saving me. Since servant's fever is gone now, it is time for servant to return back to his room to rest." Le Yao Yao lowered her eyes as she spoke.
After all, although she hadn't been here for long, she knew the Prince really enjoyed peace and quiet. Aside from the favoured secret agents, others were not allowed in here.
Even when servants were cleaning, they could only do so when Prince Rui was away at the Imperial Court.
Now that her fever was gone, naturally she couldn't stay here. Instead of getting kicked out, she might as well take the initiative to dismiss herself.
Unexpectedly, Leng Jun Yu calmly replied, "From now on, you will live here."
Leng Jun Yu's voice was low, but the moment it entered Le Yao Yao's ears, the impact was as loud as lightning.
Le Yao Yao thought she had heard wrong. The King of Hell said she could stay and live here? How was that possible? The King of Hell had never allowed anyone to live here..
Perhaps the King of Hell could sense her uncertainty, as his handsome face was a bit flustered. Then, he lightly coughed and said, "You didn't hear wrong. From now on, move here to live."
Leng Jun Yu felt very uncomfortable the moment he recalled the shitty room Le Yao Yao was staying in.
He didn't know why, but he honestly didn't want "him" to live in such a poor environment.
Perhaps, "he" gave off a pure and clean aura. Hence, his heart ached for "him".
Heartache? Oh God! Was he insane?
His heart was aching for a eunuch?!
His abnormal thoughts were very unfathomable to him. However, Leng Jun Yu swept his cold eyes down towards the tiny eunuch and felt his heart soften.
Honestly, this little eunuch was so adorable and full of life!
He no longer questioned his thoughts nor did he allow Le Yao Yao to say anything else. Leng Jun Yu left and returned into his room.
Le Yao Yao watched the carved wooden door closed as she snapped back into reality.
Oh God! She was going to live here from now on?!
It was true that her room and this room was the difference between heaven and the ground. In addition, the clothes were were also of much higher quality. But the moment she thought about living next to the King of Hell with only a carved wooden door in between, Le Yao Yao felt extremely conflicted.
Was this luck…or tragedy?
Regardless of what she thought, she had no choice in the matter. She will be living with the King of Hell.
When the chief manager found out about this the next day, his old face was astonished. Then, he solemnly warned Le Yao Yao.
"From now on, you must serve the Prince well, understand?!"
Obviously, Le Yao Yao agreed. However, deep down she was a bit depressed.
Despite living under better conditions, in the past, she only had to serve the Prince during the breakfast time and after he had returned from the Imperial Court to bathe. However, now, she was living next to Prince Rui. That means, she had to be on call at any moment. How depressing!
Since Le Yao Yao had a fever last night, the King of Hell didn't require her to serve him in the morning. By the time Le Yao Yao naturally woke up, it was already noon.
After listening to the chief manager's strict lecture, Le Yao Yao went to the cafeteria to eat lunch.
Unexpectedly, the moment she entered into the cafeteria, the noisy room instantly turned silent.
One by one, pairs of eyes intently stared at her direction. It was so intense that her scalp was turning numb.
Slowly, the noise level returned back to normal.
But from time to time, people would secretly watch her. From their glances, Le Yao Yao could differentiate all sorts of expressions. There were some that were envious, and some that were jealous. It made her very bewildered.
Lastly, she noticed Xiao Mu Zi nearby. So Le Yao Yao immediately carried her meal tray over and she ran towards him with jolting buttocks. Then, she sat down next to him as she leaned her head over and whispered, "Xiao Mu Zi, did something happen today? Why is everyone watching me so strangely?"
In regards to Le Yao Yao's question, Xiao Mu Zi gave her a weird look at first. Then, he responded with a question instead.
"Xiao Yao Zi, do you honestly don't know or are you faking it?"
"Rubbish! If I know, why would I need to ask you?"
Le Yao Yao unrestrainedly rolled her eyes at Xiao Mu Zi, and Xiao Mu Zi grinned in response as he revealed the mystery to Le Yao Yao.
"Xiao Yao Zi. First of all, I want to congratulate you. Although we entered the Prince's residence at the same time, you have been selected by the Prince himself. Did you know that aside from the secret agents, no one else has the privilege to live with Prince Rui? But now, the Prince has decided to let you live with him. That means the Prince highly values you. In the future when you become a big shot, don't forget me, Xiao Mu Zi ah!"
"Huh? The Prince values me?!"
After hearing Xiao Mu Zi's words, the corner of Le Yao Yao's mouth twitched.
Last night, she thought about why the Prince wanted her to move in. After pondering for awhile, she figured Prince Rui wanted a 24 hours slave he could conveniently call over.
Surprisingly, something so terrible was seen as something so amazing to others.
No wonder the moment she walked inside, everyone was giving her strange looks.
She didn't think it was a big deal, but after Xiao Mu Zi said all this stuff to her, she felt a lot of pressure dealing with the King of Hell.
But if she looked at it from another angle, she had transmigrated into this body without the original owner's memories. She had no idea who she really was.
If she had to remain in this era for life and never locate her actual family, she must plan ahead and figure out how she was going to live on.
Although she was a little eunuch, she was a fraud. In three years, she will definitely leave this place.
But after leaving, where will she go?
Also, her current salary was only two silver taels per month. In three years, she will only have seventy two silver taels; excluding her personal spending!
But if Prince Rui valued her and she made him happy, he might randomly reward her with some money or items..
The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the more she felt like living with the King of Hell was not a bad thing.
After all, regardless of where a person is, the goal is to climb to the top! Although she was a little eunuch, she must become an outstanding eunuch!
Yup, that's right!
