Chapter 67: Rescuing Le Yao Yao
On the contrary to Le Yao Yao's desperate situation, in the Study, three people were having a discussion.
But Xing, who was sitting on the bed, was staring blankly at something outside. His handsome face was distracted.
Leng Jun Yu was speaking and sensed Xing's inattentiveness. His face darkened and his pupils revealed annoyance.
After all, one of the things he hated the most was when people became absent minded when he spoke. It was a sign of disrespect.
Mei could tell Master was angry, so he quickly reached over and pinched Xing. His voice was filled with caution. "Xing!"
Xing could hear the warning tone in Mei's voice. He was confused.
Mei looked at him speechlessly as he whispered, "What are you looking at? Master is angry."
Hearing this, Xing turned his attention towards Leng Jung Yu.
"What is it that is so worthy of your attention?" Leng Jun Yu growled.
"Master. Look! I think something happened over there. It is so bright. I think there's a fire!" Xing innocently blinked and pointed towards the window.
Leng Jun Yu swept a brief look. But when he saw the bright red sky that Xing was pointing at, his cold pupils widened. Because –
That was where the kitchen was located!!
After realizing the fire was blazing from the kitchen, Leng Jun Yu felt his heart ferociously jerked. It was very painful. Then, an intense uneasiness went straight through his mind.
He didn't think; it was as if his body had a mind of its own and he immediately vanished and flew towards the kitchen.
His heart was relentlessly praying. Please please be alright. Please….
"Huh? Where did Master go?"
Xing turned around and saw that Leng Jun Yu was no longer behind him. He was so preoccupied by the fire that he didn't notice Leng Jun Yu's departure.
As for Mei, he appeared to be deep in thought as he gazed at the direction that Leng Jun Yu had abruptly rushed to.
"This is the first time I've seen Master so concerned about a person…strange.." He murmured.
Although Mei and Xing were surprised, they also quickly hurried to the scene.
The fire was ruthless. It was like a raging devil as it opened its mouth and ruthlessly swallowed the entire kitchen. The temperature of the scorching heat was rapidly rising, and Le Yao Yao's forehead and body was soaked from sweat.
Worse of all, the smoke entered her nose and caused her to choke progressively. Her throat felt like it was being burned by fire and now she could hardly make a sound.
Fortunately, her earlier cry was heard by someone. In no time, the quiet evening was replaced by screams everywhere.
A lot of confused shouting and chaotic running could be heard from the outside. Xiao Mu Zi was also wailing indistinctly.
But currently, Le Yao Yao no longer had any strength to do anything.
Because, she was in a lot of pain. It was so hot, and she felt like she was about to be cooked.
Perhaps, she had inhaled too much smoke, because her vision began to blur. Everything started to sway and look misty.
She was about to die…!
But if she died, would she return to the future?!
She really wanted to go home..
That was Le Yao Yao's last thought. Then, she lost consciousness.
So she had no idea that someone was practically going insane from anguish.
"Where is Xiao Yao Zi?"
Outside of the kitchen, Leng Jun Yu seized the arm of a servant that was holding a bucket of water as he hastily asked.
Leng Jun Yu's voice was extremely cold and filled with tension. It made the servant's scalp feel numb. When the servant saw his scarlet icy eyes, he was so frightened that his eyes rolled back and fainted on the spot.
Seeing this useless servant caused Leng Jun Yu's expression to become even more horrendous.
But when he swept his eyes across and noticed Xiao Mu Zi crying in front of the kitchen, he felt his heart thumped as if it had fallen into a bottomless pit.
"He" was inside!
The moment Leng Jun Yu came to this realization, he snatched a servant's bucket and poured the ice cold water over his head and flew into the fire as fast as lightning.
"Ahhh! Prince Rui! People, hurry! We must save the Prince!!"
Everyone panicked and screamed. But regardless of how loud they were, Leng Jun Yu's heart was completely occupied by the little eunuch.
Knowing that "he" was in the kitchen, and perhaps already dead, was like getting stabbed in his heart. It was so painful that he could barely breathe.
In addition, when he went inside, he was soaked from head to toe. But the temperature of the fire was truly too high. In just a few seconds, his wet clothes and hair was roasted dry.
But Leng Jun Yu continued to brace the scorching heat as he swept his cold pupils across the burning kitchen.
He didn't see "him". His handsome brows were currently knitted together. It caused his character to almost like the character "川".
Finally, just as Leng Jun Yu was almost about to turn insane from excessive concern, he found him.
Lying on the ground was the unconscious Le Yao Yao. Leng Jun Yu felt a breath of relief and immediately picked him up and flew out from the kitchen like a fire snake.
Fortunately, they made it out just in time. The second he came out, the kitchen behind them made a rumbling noise and the entire building collapsed…
It was a matter of life and death. Everyone stared at the sea of fire and Leng Jun Yu -who flew out as quick as an arrow, and wasn't able to snap out of their shock.
It wasn't until the chief manager began to loudly holler that everyone began to extinguish the fire and call for the Imperial Physician. Once again, it was a very chaotic scene.
However, since Leng Jun Yu was fine and managed to rescue Le Yao Yao, everyone felt felt relieved and calmer; their hearts could finally relax.
The chief manager, though, was closely following Leng Jun Yu and very worried.
Although he was glad the Prince was finally caring about others, being excessively concerned over a eunuch may not be a good thing?!
In less than a day, the fire incident from Prince Rui's residence spread far and wide throughout the Heaven Yuan dynasty.
Also, someone leaked that the Prince risked his life as he stormed into the fire to rescue the little eunuch.
The moment this spreaded, many new rumours began to emerge.
Some people believed that the King of Hell was not actually heartless and cruel. If so, he wouldn't have risked his life for a little eunuch. It was so touching!
There were also others who said the reason why the King of Hell was so willing to risk his life was because the King of Hell wasn't interested in women. The little eunuch was his side man….
There were all sorts of rumours. But the Prince himself did not care. After all, there were way too many rumours about him. Plus, currently, all of his energy and thoughts were devoted to the little person on the bed.
"His" cheeks were still flushed from the heat. Fortunately, he was fine aside from inhaling too much smoke. But the moment Leng Jun Yu realized that he was so close to losing "him" forever, he felt like his heart was being twisted with a knife.
Aside from the little eunuch, he had never felt this way towards anyone before.
Thinking of this, Leng Jun Yu felt hopeless and depressed.
In the end, he could only softly sigh.
"Ai, what is this Prince going to do with you?!"
