Chapter 84: An unexpected turn of event
Hearing this, Le Yao Yao didn't dare to move. Her back was straight, and her whole body was stiff.
Her heart was furiously pounding, while she was howling on the inside.
Oh God! The King of Hell's scary eyes are showing again!
Today, the King of Hell was truly abnormal!
What does h-h-h-he-he-he-he want to do to her?
Could he have an inappropriate indulgence? For example, with men?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao's heart immediately froze, and she stuttered and trembled like no tomorrow.
"P-Prince Rui, s-servant is a eunuch…."
What the hell, she was a eunuch! Even if he was the Prince, he cannot enter a person with "disabilities", understand!?
Le Yao Yao could tell that Leng Jun Yu was going through an internal struggle. Seeing this, she was overjoyed! After all, if the King of Hell was hesitating, he might not enter her! Woo hoo! She must take advantage of this opportunity!
Le Yao Yao instantly blinked and crumpled her tiny face and made a pitiful expression. She crinkled her nose and looked very wronged.
"Prince Rui, although servant is a eunuch. Servant still has dignity!"
So, just because you're the Prince, you can't do whatever that pleases you without my consent, understand?!
If he actually entered her, he will know she is female. Then, the perverted King of Hell will be so ashamed of his behaviour that he will "ka cha" her head! Therefore, she must ensure it never happens! So, Le Yao Yao made a "wah" sound and burst into tears.
She cried on the spot. She didn't even need to build up the emotions. After all, the old Le Yao Yao loved to act! Crying was definitely not big deal to her!
But her tears shocked Leng Jun Yu.
Alright. He admitted he had an inappropriate thought towards this little eunuch. But seeing how "he" was sobbing so sadly, his heart was a mess.
Especially when he heard "him" say that he had dignity. It honestly made him feel very vexed.
True, he was a eunuch. He was partially a man. How could he…desire…aiii…
Thinking of this, combined with Le Yao Yao's pitiful expression, Leng Jun Yu ultimately let out a sigh as he stood up and consoled the tearful Le Yao Yao.
"Alright. Stop crying. This Prince….will not do anything to you. Alright?"
Humph! You think I'll stop crying just because you asked? Then I will lose face!
Perhaps Le Yao Yao purposely wanted to anger Leng Jun Yu for bullying her, so she deliberately did the opposite of what he wanted. She began to wail even louder.
Seeing this, Leng Jun Yu's handsome brows couldn't help but crinkle. However, within his eyes, there was a trace of helplessness.
After all, he had never had to coax anyone before. As a result, he honestly didn't know how.
He didn't want the servant to cry anymore, but his servant was being disobedient and began to cry even harder! So, since he had no other tactic, Leng Jun Yu hardened his face and sternly threatened Le Yao Yao.
"If you continue crying, this Prince will instantly kiss you!"
Le Yao Yao was stunned and immediately stopped crying. She lifted her watery pupils as she intently stared at the man above her head; her eyes were filled with shock.
Since the King of Hell said this, how could she dare to continue crying?
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao instantly stood up. Then, she lowered her head and pretended to slap about the dust. She didn't dare to look at the man in front of her anymore.
Since Leng Jun Yu didn't say anything else, the entire room was very silent. Aside from the sound of Le Yao Yao patting her outfit, there was no other sound. The atmosphere was gradually turning very awkward again.
Le Yao Yao knew at this rate, it would only get worse. So, she decided to excuse herself. However, at this moment, a voice as bright as bronze metal entered the door.
"Senior brother, I heard someone crying just now?!"
The two people in the room felt relieved when they heard Nangong Jun Xi's words. They both turned towards the door.
Nangong Jun Xi looked very refreshed. Earlier, he was so exhausted that a servant had to support him into Qing Xiao Ge to rest. But after taking a nap, it was as if he had came back to life. His ability to recover was comparable to a valiant cockroach!
Seeing this, Leng Jun Yu asked, "Are you alright?"
"Ai ya! Do you think I'm that weak? I feel much better after taking a nap. But, Senior brother, you didn't answer my question. Who was crying?!"
As Nangong Jun Xi spoke, his eyes swept around the room and landed on Le Yao Yao's face.
"Oh! So it was this servant that was crying?!"
You're the servant! Your whole family are servants!
Although Le Yao Yao knew her current position was a lowly eunuch and she had to serve others, she still had dignity. So when she heard how direct Nangong Jun Xi was addressing her as a servant, she was angry.
F***!! Does she have a face that was easy to bully? How come everyone likes to pick on her?
The more she thought about it, the more victimized she felt. Le Yao Yao's nose crinkled again, and tears began appearing in her eyes. Her pupils swirled around and around.
Nangong Jun Xi's handsome brows raised, and he said hopelessly, "Why are you always crying, servant? You're a man! Stop crying. You're acting like a woman!"
Nangong Jun Xi's personality has always been very open and blunt. He despised it whenever people cried and act pitiful; especially if it was a man!
"7th Prince, servant is not a man…."
Because deep down, she was a woman! It was a woman's right to enjoy crying! Ok?
However, the two men understood her words differently. After all, in their eyes, Le Yao Yao was a eunuch. Nangong Jun Xi was clearly pointing out "his" scar.
So, Leng Jun Yu's brows furrowed, and he looked a bit annoyed at Nangong Jun Xi.
Nangong Jun Xi awkwardly touched his nose. He didn't mean to bring up "his" scar. So, he quickly changed changed topic.
"Oh yeah, senior brother, were you able to find out anything during the investigation?"
Leng Jun Yu's face instantly turned grave. "Based on Mei and Xing's recent findings and what we saw at the scene of the crime, this was clearly a homicidal event. Someone is purposely going around scooping all the hearts of these young maidens. We're still unsure of the method the killer is using, because all the corpses are dried and bloodless."
"What? A series of event? Could it be a pervert?"
"No, it doesn't look like it. On the contrary, it looks like the doings of an evil cult."
"An evil cult?!"
Nangong Jun Xi's face showed signs of fear. For the past few years, there has been an increase in establishments of evil cults in both Tianyuan and his ancient kingdom of Khotan. These evil cults have done many unimaginable and strange things. They're illegal, and the things they do would cause many to raise their fingers.
Furthermore, these evil cults were very secretive. Although they sent out many people to investigate their crooked methods, they were never able to find anything.
"So does senior brother know why the evil cult is scooping out hearts and taking the blood of these young maidens?"
Instead of answering Nangong Jun Xi, Leng Jun Yu asked in return.
"Junior brother, do you remember what Master had mentioned to us in regards to these evil cults?"
"What? What did Master say?"
