To my dear readers,
Firstly, I would like to thank Sven L for his generous donation! (I wasn’t sure if it was a male and female so I looked up the name and apparently it means a young man or young warrior! It’s also a name of a Dota 2 hero with godly strength. Hehe) Thank you so much! I appreciate any amount, guys! ANYTHING HELPS. ❤ .
Anyhow, enjoy this chapter! It took me so long -_-. 3 hours.
Chapter 38: Two silver taels?
She had just arrived here. Plus, she had absolutely no recollection of this owner’s past. How the heck would she know how much this body was sold for?
So, the moment Le Yao Yao heard Xiao Mu Zi’s response, she was appalled. She couldn’t help but *pu* as she spat out all the vegetable soup from her mouth.
“What?! How much did you just say?!” She yelled.
“Aiya, Xiao Yao Zi! You want to die? You spat all over my face!”
Xiao Mu Zi used his handkerchief to wipe the soup off his face as he glared and grumbled at Le Yao Yao.
But Xiao Mu Zi realized that Le Yao Yao was different now. Ever since he had injured his head, he seemed to have forgotten a lot of things. So, he assumed Le Yao Yao had brain damage as he repeated his words once more.
“Two silver taels. When we were sold to the Prince’s residence, we were sold for two silver taels. Also, our contract is for three years!”
Xiao Mu Zi had his finger up the air as he explained.
Hearing Xiao Mu Zi’s words, Le Yao Yao’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch. She was speechless.
She couldn’t believe people here were so worthless. This body was only worth two silver taels?
The more she thought about it, the more Le Yao Yao thought the sky was going to squish her. Wu wu…what a sad life!
Xiao Mu Zi noticed her depressed Le Yao Yao looked, so he tried to comfort him.
“Xiao Yao Zi, don’t be like this. Did you forget? Although we were only worth two silver taels, within these three years, we get a monthly wage of one silver tael!”
“What?! Then logically speaking, I only need to work another month and I will have two silver taels. I wouldn’t have to sell my body no more, and I could leave this place?!”
Hearing Xiao Mu Zi’s words, the crestfallen Le Yao Yao immediately reacted as if she had been injected with chicken blood. She bounced off her seat and beamed excitedly.
After all, she didn’t want to remain in the Prince’s residence. Honestly, the King of Hell was too scary. Even though he hadn’t actually punished her, for some odd reasons, every time she saw him, she felt fear raising up from her chest.
It was the type of feeling she got whenever she did poorly on a test; when her monstrous teacher would see her individually in the office as she mercilessly glared at her. The invisible form of pressure was the most daunting.
So, the moment she finds an opportunity, she will definitely leave!
Especially since she had transmigrated here, there was no question that she will tour around this country and observe all the natural conditions and social customs. Or else, it would be such a waste!!
Maybe during her travels, she will meet a super cute guy. And it would be love at first sight. Then, they could slowly degenerate in a river of love and live a fairytale-like life….
Le Yao Yao was imagining all sorts of wonderful scenarios in her head. Her eyes were sparkling!
Sadly, her dreams were lovely but the reality was harsh. Xiao Mu Zi’s following sentence was similar to throwing a basin of cold water over her head –
“Xiao Yao Zi, have you forgotten again? The agreement we signed clearly indicated that within these three years, even if we have enough to reclaim our bodies, it is compulsory we wait until after the three years before the contract can be terminated. This means, during these three years, we must know our places and do our jobs at the Prince’s residence.”Xiao Mu Zi honestly stated. Continue reading
