Chapter 70: “He” was planning to leave him
Since they have a solution now, the Emperor quickly directed his subordinates to implement the plan. He was extremely pleased and wanted to have a feast at the Palace for his beloved brother.
Today, the ecstatic Emperor continuously filled his cup with wine. Leng Jun Yu felt like he had drank too much. At this rate, he was going to get drunk.
Although, now that the drought and flood issues were resolved, he could afford to be intoxicated. If worse comes to worse, he will take a day off from the Imperial Court tomorrow. Recently, he had been so restless and stressed. Hence, it was indeed time to give himself a few days to relax.
However, ever since he was young, Leng Jun Yu had always remained somewhat sober regardless of which venue he was in. The reason was because he had a lot of enemies due to his position and past history. Although he had secret agents to protect him, he would never allowed himself to get totally drunk except on his mother’s death anniversary; which occurred once a year.
While Leng Jun Yu was deep in thought, he had already returned to his residence.
This was the first time he felt so warm towards his residence. It gave him a “home” type of feel.
Ever since he was bestowed the title of a “Prince”, he was given this residence. But until a year ago, he was training with his Master in Tianshan mountain. Since he was rarely here, he had never once considered this place as his home.
In the past, the residence was always icy and cold. It didn’t matter if he never came back.
But now, he had a desire to speed home.
Was “he” already asleep? Or was he standing by the entrance waiting for my return?
Thinking of this, Leng Jun Yu instantly looked forward to seeing Le Yao Yao as the corner of his mouth curved into a smile.
It was a faint smile, but Mei and Xing noticed. Then they both gave each other a meaningful glance.
Leng Jun Yu wasn’t aware of his secret agents’ behaviour as he took huge strides into his residence. He quickly swept his eyes across his surroundings until they paused at a certain spot.
He noticed the rear views of Xiao Mu Zi and Le Yao Yao. Leng Jun Yu halted his step and waved his hand to indicate to his two secret agents that may dismiss themselves.
Since Leng Jun Yu had practiced martial arts for years, his hearing was especially strong. In addition, his footsteps were very light. Basically, unless it was a strong martial artist, most wouldn’t be able to detect his existence.
So, currently, Le Yao Yao and Xiao Mu Zi had no idea that Leng Jun Yu had returned. Thus, they were speaking without any precautions.
“Xiao Yao Zi, do you think your words were able to help the Prince?”
“Hehe. Didn’t you see Prince Rui smiling? That must mean my solution is useful! The citizens from the drought and flood will be ok!”
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao was very proud of herself.
Oh God! She had finally made a good contribution since she had arrived here. This type of feeling cannot be described through words.
She has definitely made all the transmigrated women proud!
Le Yao Yao was extremely pleased and happy. Her smile became even brighter.
Currently, because she was injured, she didn’t have to do anything at the residence. Xiao Mu Zi was temporarily transferred here and Le Yao Yao was delighted! Because now she had someone to hang out with!
Since all the tasks were completed and the King of Hell has not returned yet, they were both leisurely lying on the grass by the meadow.
There were countless amount of stars twinkling in the sky. As Le Yao Yao lied on the grass, she raised her ha
nds up high; as if she wanted to pull the stars down.
The silvery light from the bright moon was gentle and soft as it spilled onto the rooftops and lanterns. It was a spectacular sight.
The more she looked at it, the more carefree and relaxed she felt. Le Yao Yao was gradually falling in love with the evening sky.
Her spoken words were clearly heard in this quiet evening. From a distance, Leng Jun Yu could hear her proud tone and his smile deepened.
Haha. The little guy is proud of himself! But then again, “he” should be proud!
He managed to solve an issue that had been bothering them for over a month. And he had never gone through proper schooling! When Leng Jun Yu told his brother about this, the Emperor was bewildered. He loudly exclaimed that he wanted to meet such a talented servant. He wanted Leng Jun Yu to bring him to the Palace so he can take a look and heavily reward him.
However, Leng Jun Yu refused. After all, his little eunuch was his treasure. What would he do if his brother, the Emperor, wanted the little eunuch for himself?
So, he rejected right away.
But he definitely planned to reward the little eunuch. Currently, he wasn’t sure what to give him.
At this moment, Le Yao Yao happened to be discussing this with Xiao Mu Zi.
Leng Jun Yu paused and decided to listen.
First, he will listen to see what “he” wants, then later, he will give “him” what he wants.
“Xiao Yao Zi, you have made such a great contribution. Do you think the Prince will reward you heavily when he comes back?!”
Xiao Mu Zi was envious but very happy for Le Yao Yao.
“Hehe. The Prince is so wealthy. Any of his antiques or jade artifacts are priceless. If he gives me an item, I will be rich. But don’t worry, Xiao Mu Zi. As long as I, Xiao Yao Zi, is alive, I will never forget you! In three years, we will redeem our bodies and leave this place. We can use my rewards to start a business and live well. Although you will never be able to get a wife, you will always have me as a brother by your side!”
Le Yao Yao was a very loyal and self-sacrificing individual. Also, she spoke the truth. If the King of Hell rewarded her with something, she will definitely save it and use it after they leave the residence.
As a 21st century new human being, she doesn’t believe she cannot excel in this ancient era.
Honestly, sometimes, she can be very driven!
But she had no idea that her beautiful blueprint was being heard by a particular someone.
That someone’s smiling face had darkened as he narrowed his cold pupils. Now, the smile had turned into a horizontal line; indicating his displeasure.
So “he” already planned to leave?
Although there were still three years before he could leave, hearing his plan to leave subconsciously made his heart tightened and Leng Jun Yu began to feel a wrath of fury.
Could “he” feel mistreated by him? Is that why “he” wanted to leave the residence….and leave him??
The moment Leng Jun Yu imagined not seeing “him” ever again, he began to feel very unstable and frightened.
Originally, his life was so gloomy that he lost all interest in life. But when “he” appeared, “he” was like the warm Sun that had pushed his downcast clouds away. His dim world was gradually lighting up.
In the past, he had never experienced such warmth before, so he had never cared for it. But now that he has experienced this type of feeling, he definitely wasn’t going to let it go. Never!
Thinking of this, Leng Jun Yu took huge strides towards Le Yao Yao and Xiao Mu Zi’s direction.
Le Yao Yao suddenly felt a dark shadow over her head. “Huh? Is it about to rain? How come the sky’s so dark?”
“Eh, ah! It’s… P-Prince Rui!”
Xiao Mu Zi was the first to react.
Leng Jun Yu was standing behind them for an unknown amount of period. Xiao Mu Zi was so shocked that his eyes widen and he instantly flipped over like a carp and kneeled in front of Leng Jun Yu.
As for Le Yao Yao, she was half a second slow, but she also leaped up from the grass and politely acknowledged the Prince.
“Your servant wishes the Prince well!”
“Mm. You may rise.”
“What were you two talking about? It sounded like a happy conversation.”
Leng Jun Yu appeared interested although he already knew the answer to his question. As for Le Yao Yao, she shook her head and smile in response.
“To respond to the Prince, we were not talking about anything in particular! Oh, was servant’s suggestions useful to solve the flood and drought incident? Did the plan go through?”
If the plan went through, what was the King of Hell going to reward her?!
Gold and silver? Pearls and jewels? Antiques or jade artifacts?
Hehe. She was honestly not picky. Anything will do! Hehehehe…
