Chapter 77: Le Yao Yao's crafty method
As for Le Yao Yao, she could tell she was in big trouble. But it wasn't totally her fault! Why would a majestic 7th Prince not walk through the front door but instead leap over a wall from the back like a guilty thief? The rear court was very isolated, so under these circumstances, it was rather normal of her to mistaken him as a thief.
"7th Prince, servant deserves to die. However, servant did not do it purposely. If servant knew the person flipping over was the 7th Prince, even if servant had 100 guts, servant would not mistaken the 7th Prince for a thief."
Le Yao Yao's lines had two intentions. Firstly, she wanted to emphasize she didn't do it on purpose. Secondly, she hinted that Nangong Jun Xi was wrong as well.
Although Le Yao Yao's words were somewhat reasonable, Nangong Jun Xi was still furious.
After all, his xx was still in pain! And men care about that area the most! If the little eunuch had used any more strength, he wouldn't be able to have sexual intercourse anymore!
"Humph! Not on purpose, you say?! Do you think a servant saying he didn't do it on purpose is good enough? You think I'll let you off like that? Do you know how hard you kicked me? You almost broke my xx!" He shouted.
"7th Prince, your xx is still here, right? And you'll be fine in a month, right?" Le Yao Yao squealed.
Le Yao Yao couldn't help but withdrew her neck while facing this menacing lion's roar. Her cute face was covered in fear.
Deep down, she was silently cursing him.
Damn you! If I could, I would snap your xx off! See if you have any strength to lecture me then! You were also wrong, yet you're blaming everything on me! Just because you're the 7th Prince, you think you're all that?! Psssssh. One of the things I hate the most is when people use their status to suppress others!
Plus, he was simply fortunate to be born with status and wealth. If he were from a commoner's household, could he be so aggressive and unbridled? Despicable!
"You sound so casual. It's a month! I'm the victim, not you! If it were you, and your xx was injured, would you be as calm about it?!"
Nangong Jun Xi shrieked. His voice was so loud that the tiles on the roof vibrated. But the moment he said that, Le Yao Yao innocently blinked her big watery eyes and pouted her red lips. She looked very wronged.
"7th Prince, servant's xx is long gone. Even if you give servant's xx back, it's no use." Le Yao Yao whimpered.
Nangong Jun Xi was totally caught off guard by Le Yao Yao's response. He couldn't help but appear stricken. He didn't know how to continue because he had momentarily forgotten that the person in front of him was a eunuch; his xx was removed.
While Nangong Jun Xi looked doubtful, Le Yao Yao wasted no time and seized the opportunity as she continuously blinked her beautiful pupils and secretly pinched her thigh. In an instant, there was a foggy mist over her eyes.
Initially, Nangong Jun Xi was so furious that he had paid no attention to Le Yao Yao's appearance. But Le Yao Yao's last sentence made him snap out of his anger, and he finally noticed Le Yao Yao's face.
Now that he was being attentive, he noticed this eunuch was actually very good looking! His face was the size of his palm; skin white as snow, with delicate facial features. His face was like fine jade; with white teeth and red lips. But the most alluring feature were his eyes; they were big and round, like a pair of beautiful gemstones.
Nangong Jun Xi had seen many gorgeous women; after all, they were as common as clouds in the Palace. There were the frail type, charming type, innocent type….basically all types could be found. There were never a lack of supply.
But he had never seen such a lovely pair of eyes!
Especially when the little eunuch's crystal eyes continuously spun around and around in front of him. The tears looked like they were about to spill out at any second.
In addition, Nangong Jun Xi felt if he were to punish "him", it would make him seem wicked beyond redemption!
The moment Nangong Jun Xi came to this realization, he felt like he was suffering in silence. He wanted to express it but he didn't know how. After all, if another person had treated him this way, he would have harshly punished the person without any hesitation. But when he stared into this pair of watery eyes, he suddenly felt like he couldn't bear to see him hurt?!
Le Yao Yao caught his expression and was secretly delighted.
After all, in the past, her acting gave her an award at school! So just now, she unleashed her trick. Her trick involves her injuring herself in order to gain the enemy's heart. Based on the natural state of her body, as long as she blinked her huge eyes and crinkled her brows, she would look extremely miserable and pitiful. Le Yao Yao had practiced in front of a copper mirror before. She was touched and tricked by her own performance.
She deliberately practiced this move to deal with the King of Hell.
After all, staying by Prince Rui's side meant her brain was often hanging by a thread. There was no guarantee she could remain alive. So whenever there was a crucial moment, she would use this move and soften the Prince's heart so that she wouldn't have to suffer a heavy punishment.
So now, she was using the same move on the 7th Prince. Since he wanted to punish her, she must make him feel so moved by her pitiful face that he will change his mind!
Originally, she thought no one would see through her method. Surprisingly, the King of Hell saw the joy that had briefly flashed in her eyes from where he was sitting.
The corner of Leng Jun Yu's mouth couldn't help but curve slightly upwards when he saw the little eunuch acting very pitiful.
Haha, this silly crafty little guy…
Leng Jun Yu felt his heart soften as he swept a look at his junior brother.
A few days ago, he was given news that his junior brother was trying to escape from an arranged marriage. Nangong Jun Xi had planned on hiding at his residence. However, Leng Jun Yu didn't expect him to arrive so soon, nor make such a dramatic appearance.
If it were any other eunuchs that had offended Nangong Jun Xi, he would definitely not be concerned and allow his junior brother to punish him in whichever way he'd like. However, since it was this particular eunuch, he cannot allow his junior brother to hurt him.
"I can tell Xiao Tu Zi didn't do it on purpose. Forgive him this time. Also, you could have entered through the front doors. Why did you choose to flip over the wall? Your action makes it difficult for others not to mistaken you as a thief. Xiao Tu Zi's reaction is actually very reasonable and fair."
Leng Jun Yu's words clearly leaned towards supporting Le Yao Yao. Thus, Le Yao Yao's face instantly became startled.
Oh God! The King of Hell was speaking up for her!
She felt special and favoured by superior!
It turned out the King of Hell could be a good person at times…
Nangong Jun Xi's shock was not any less than Le Yao Yao's.
After all, he was Leng Jun Yu's junior brother. They had trained five years together on Tianshan mountain. So Nangong Jun Xi was very aware of his senior brother's temperament and personality.
In his eyes, his senior brother was a very cold, proud and serious person. But deep down, he had a wounded heart.
Normally, Leng Jun Yu would have an icy mask that would repel people for a thousand miles. For things that didn't concern him, he would never care about.
Hence, now that his senior brother was purposely shielding the little eunuch, he was stunned!
Could something have happened to his senior brother ever since they had separated from training? Was that why his personality changed?
Thinking of this, Nangong Jun Xi couldn't help but pause his gaze at the Le Yao Yao who was currently standing in front of him.
Could this change have something to do with this little eunuch?
Leng Jun Yu probably noticed Nangong Jun Xi's bewilderment, and quickly decided to change topics.
"Jun Xi, why did you flip over the wall?!"
"Eh… it's a long story."
Nangong Jun Xi knew his senior brother was purposely trying to switch the topic. Since senior brother wanted to protect the little eunuch so badly, he'll give his senior brother face and not punish the little eunuch today.
After all, there will be ample time for that later.
"Senior brother, my life is so pitiful! I don't know why mother loves that stupid girl so much! That stupid girl is short, ugly, and clingy. I'm so disgusted by her! I don't know what type of drugs she gave my mother. Mother actually wants me to marry her! Humph! She wants me to marry her? In her dreams!" Nangong Jun Xi angrily growled as he gritted his teeth.
Leng Jun Yu was used to seeing Nangong Jun Xi like this. In the past, each time he spoke of his fiancee, he would always react this way. But…
"Jun Xi, you haven't seen the girl for years, correct? Remember, women can look drastically different from their childhood. Perhaps, the lady is a beauty now!"
"Humph! Based on her abilities? Senior brother, you have no idea. That stupid girl was so ugly and sticky. She was literally like a niupi candy. And when she spoke, it sounded like leaky wind. She would follow me constantly and regardless of how hard I tried to get rid of her, I couldn't. My siblings made fun of me too!"
"By the way, senior brother, I'm hungry. Hehe. Is there food to eat?"
Seeing Nangong Jun Xi's smiling handsome face, Leng Jun Yu helplessly laughed. Then, he turned towards Le Yao Yao and said, "Xiao Tu Zi, did you hear the 7th Prince's words? He is hungry. Now go and personally prepare a dish!"
