Chapter 98: There will be prizes!
Actually, Le Yao Yao hadn't thought about it yet. However, she wasn't the slightest bit worried. In the 21st century, she was an expert in performance. She could recite, act, sing or dance. Nothing was a challenge to her.
Currently, she had options. What should she perform on that day?
Also, although the competition was fake, the prizes shouldn't be fake, right?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao suddenly leaped up from her stool and shouted.
"Oh yeah! I almost forgot! Although this talent show competition is fake, the prizes should still be real! Haha, Prince Rui is so rich, he definitely wouldn't be so cheap, right!?"
The moment she thought of prizes, it was as if Le Yao Yao had been injected with chicken blood. She quickly ran to Ya Feng Ge.
Mei and Xing happened to exit the Study. Seeing the ecstatic Le Yao Yao, their brows raised.
Xing's mouth curved into a smile as he teased Le Yao Yao.
"Xiao Yao Zi, did you find gold? Look how delighted you are."
"Haha! Xing big brother! Mei big brother! I hope you guys are well!"
Seeing Mei and Xing, Le Yao Yao enthusiastically greeted them. After all, they were older than her, so she thought her greeting was normal. However, the two secret agents were slightly stunned.
Mei quickly reverted back to his icy expression though. He didn't acknowledge or refuse the title. All he did was lightly nodded.
As for Xing, hearing Le Yao Yao sweetly called him big brother, he felt as if his heart had been poured with honey.
After all, they were secret agents. To others, they were merely Prince Rui's sacrifices. Everyone else addressed them as Xing secret agent, and Mei secret agent.
So hearing Le Yao Yao call him big brother felt very refreshing and warm. Xing's opinion of Le Yao Yao went up several degrees.
In addition, they weren't blind. They could naturally tell that this little eunuch was special to Prince Rui.
But even though Prince Rui was gradually attaching importance to this little eunuch, Mei and Xing were not jealous in any way. Because although in name they were Prince Rui's subordinates, they have been through so many life and death situations with him all these years. Ultimately, they respected Prince Rui and cared more about his happiness.
In the past, they had always felt that the Prince was too reclusive. Although he had unlimited power, status, riches, he didn't know how to smile. It was like he was emotionless.
Although personally, they didn't really understand emotions either. But their position were different. They were only secret agents. They didn't need emotions. They only needed to be loyal to the Prince.
But they also wanted Prince Rui to be happy and live like a normal person!
Finally, because of this eunuch, Prince Rui was beginning to have a human touch. And he has learnt to smile.
Hence, Mei and Xing were very happy for Prince Rui.
So they naturally would react differently towards Le Yao Yao.
Le Yao Yao was not aware of Mei and Xing's thoughts. After hearing Xing's words, she only responded with a smile, "Xing big brother, is Prince Rui inside?"
"Okay, then I'm going to enter first."
Immediately, Le Yao Yao rushed into the Study like a little sparrow.
Before Le Yao Yao had entered the Study, Leng Jun Yu was sitting in front of his desk with a thick book in his hand. He had all his attention on it.
As for Nangong Jun Xi, he was staring around the Study looking for a book to kill time. After all, he knew whenever his senior brother was reading, he would focus all his attention on the book. Others would rather not distract him.
At this moment, an excited Le Yao Yao entered the Study. Suddenly, Nangong Jun Xi felt like he had been injected with chicken blood and his eyes lit up.
However, he wasn't aware of his strange change in behaviour.
Le Yao Yao didn't notice either. Because the moment she had stormed into the Study, her eyes were focused on the King of Hell. She didn't even blink.
Seeing how Le Yao Yao only had Leng Jun Yu in his eyes, Nangong Jun Xi felt very sour.
Could he be less charming than senior brother?
That can't be?!
Honestly, he thought he was quite attractive! Whenever he was on the streets, many women would make electrifying eye contacts with him.
Also, senior brother's face was cold like an icy mountain. If one were to stare at it for a bit longer, they would freeze too. What type of taste does this little servant have? He preferred a frozen mountain instead of bright sunlight?!
Finally, Nangong Jun Xi couldn't hold back anymore.
"What type of servant are you? Don't you have manners? You have entered, yet you don't greet us. Is it because you think you've contributed to something good, so you've forgotten your position?"
Since Nangong Jun Xi sounded so irritated, Leng Jun Yu slightly looked up and even the daydreaming Le Yao Yao snapped back to reality.
Le Yao Yao was surprised. She didn't realized there was someone else in the room!
Seeing Nangong Jun Xi's face, Le Yao Yao gave him the middle finger on the inside.
F you! Status! Status!
Yes, she was only a eunuch. She couldn't compete with his respectable position. But so what? He was just lucky to be born into a royal family. If his status was removed, he was nothing! And right now, he was only a guest! How dare he complain when the host himself isn't complaining? Ugggh.
Le Yao Yao immediately appeared to be fearful as she lowered her eyes and bent her waist and timidly apologized.
"Prince Rui, servant wishes you well. 7th Prince, servant wishes you well. Earlier servant did not forget his position. It's just that Prince Rui was reading, so servant was afraid to interrupt. Please punish me, Prince."
Seeing Le Yao Yao's pitiful and fearful expression, Leng Jun Yu couldn't help but crinkle his brows. He coldly gave Nangong Jun Xi a look.
Although there was no resentment in his gaze, Nangong Jun Xi was upset.
Could senior brother be mad at him? How come senior brother care so much for a servant?
Now, Nangong Jun Xi's red lips were pouty. He looked like a child that was trying to strive for favour.
Leng Jun Yu was aware of his junior brother's personality. He knew Nangong Jun Xi was not a bad guy. But it was as if Nangong Jun Xi and Le Yao Yao were mortal enemies from the previous life. Each time they meet, they had to fight.
By now, he was used to it.
"Why are you looking for this Prince?" Leng Jun Yu asked.
"Prince Rui, although the talent show competition is fake, there are actually ten real contestants. Servant was wondering whether the participants would receive prizes if their performances are outstanding."
Hearing this, Leng Jun Yu was caught a bit off guard. Honestly, he hadn't thought about it. The whole competition was a fraud. In addition, there might be danger involved. But seeing how hopeful the little eunuch was, his heart couldn't help but soften. He couldn't bear to reject him.
So after a long silence, Leng Jun Yu opened his mouth again.
"Does this Prince seem like a stingy person?"
That means there will be prizes?!
Thinking of this, Le Yao Yao felt like she had found a mountain of gold and silver. Her mouth curved into a bright, cheerful smile. Her smile was like the warm spring breeze that had gradually entered a person's inner soul.
Leng Jun Yu couldn't help but smile back in return.
Seeing this, Nangong Jun Xi felt like there was a piece of cotton stuck in his heart. He couldn't spit it out.
So now, he looked extremely grumpy.
"Why are you smiling so happily? Do you think you're going to be the winner for sure? What makes you think you have the ability?"
Nangong Jun Xi's words were arrogant, but that was not his intention. Currently, he was even surprised by his actions. In the past, he had never treated anyone else like this. But why does he always acting so out of character whenever he sees this little eunuch?
He enjoyed arguing with "him". He enjoyed seeing "him" all puffy and furious. He liked winning.
Yet, he was unable to get "him" to notice him. So now, his words sounded awful.
