Chapter 145: The steamed dumplings

Nangong Jun Xi could tell Le Yao Yao was trying to provoke him.

But he honestly didn’t believe Le Yao Yao had the abilities to succeed this time!

Because the Dowager Empress was a very picky lady. For the past few years, she was dissatisfied with the performances on her birthday.

“So what if you messed it up?”

“Oh? To respond to the 7th Prince, if servant messed it up, that’s not servant’s fault. After all, 7th Prince is pushing this task onto servant.”

All of a sudden, Le Yao Yao acted like an innocent puppy as she blinked her bright pupils in a pitiful manner.

“You little servant! Dream on! If things go well, you get a reward. But if things go badly, you’re putting the blame on me?”

“Well then, servant will not help out. What a pity. Servant had just thought of a terrific idea. I guess it’s no longer necessary… Ohhhhhh dearrrrrrrr!”

Le Yao Yao purposely stretched out her sigh and pretended to look very regretful.

Seeing how Le Yao Yao was deliberately putting on an act, Nangong Jun Xi was irritated to the max.

“Oh, brother Yao, do you really have a terrific idea?” Dongfang Bai’s tone was very warm and thick. It was comparable to gentle creek water flowing by.

“Yes, have you ever heard of ‘Wu Song hit the tiger’?”

“Wu Song hit the tiger?”

“How about ‘Eight stars to congratulate’?”

“No….”

Dongfang Bai wasn’t the only one who was puzzled. Nangong Jun Xi was bewildered as well.

“Xiao Zhu Zi, how come I have never heard of these plays before?”

“Haha. Of course! This servant knows a lot more things than you think, 7th Prince!”

“Keep talking big! Sounding good is one thing, but the content and whether the Dowager Empress will like it is another! We’ll see about that!”

“7th Prince, this servant is not talking big! You will find out in the future!”

“Alright. This Prince will be waiting!”

From the start to finish, the King of Hell never said a word.

But no one noticed that while Le Yao Yao and Nangong Jun Xi were bickering, he was secretly gazing at Le Yao Yao’s proud and confident face from the corners of his eyes.

For a hundred silver taels, Le Yao Yao was going to go all out!

Since there were only ten days left before the event, Le Yao Yao was tight on time. As a result, the King of Hell gave Le Yao Yao permission off from serving him so that she could focus on this important task instead.

Although the King of Hell didn’t participate in their conversation, he silently agreed to allow her to take part. This was shocking to Le Yao Yao because it meant he trusted that she could do a good job.

For this event, Le Yao Yao intentionally chose a few famous Beijing operas. Then, she personally compiled the whole set for the theatrical group.

This was nothing new to her, as she had often participated in performance activities back in the 21st century.

Nangong Jun Xi and Dongfang Bai would often come by to watch the practices.

Nangong Jun Xi went because he didn’t believe Le Yao Yao’s abilities. After all, in his eyes, Le Yao Yao was merely a little servant. How much could a servant know? If anything, he only possessed some street smarts.

But when he personally went to pay them a visit, he realized this little servant’s abilities had far exceeded his expectations.

Because regardless of the plays itself, the costumes or props, Le Yao Yao had adopted an original approach. Even the head of the theatrical group was amazed by Le Yao Yao.

He jokingly suggested that if Le Yao Yao were to ever leave the residence, he could come to their company and help be a screenwriter.

Hearing this, Le Yao Yao was delighted. After all, she was a new human being from the 21st century. If she could make the modern plays famous in this ancient era, and if the Dowager Empress liked it, she would be bringing great height to this industry!

Le Yao Yao beamed.

After thinking about this, it was a great opportunity.

After all, she will leave Prince Rui’s residence in three years. She hadn’t never thought about what she would do in the future!

If she ends up becoming a screenwriter, that would be amazing!

The more Le Yao Yao thought about it, the harder she began to work.

Although she was exhausted daily, it was very meaningful to her.

Everyday, she would return back to Ya Feng Ge in the evening. Then, she would simply take a quick shower and wash up before heading to bed.

The moment she laid down, she would visit the God of Dreams.

Since she had only been working on the plays, she hadn’t seen the King of Hell for several days.

Sources say that the King of Hell had been very busy as well.

He spent most of his time in the palace. Sometimes, he would even stay overnight at the palace.

Originally, Le Yao Yao thought she would long for the days where there would be no King of Hell. But whenever she was tired, his cold and icy face would appear in front of her face…

Currently, Le Yao Yao was about to take a nap in the middle of the afternoon. These days, she was too tired….

—–

Le Yao Yao was dozing off as she lazily laid on the soft grass. She was breathing in the fresh scent of grass, and it was helping her relax.

But just as she was about to get deeper into her dreams, she suddenly smelt something very savory. It was the most famous dimsum from Ruyi tavern -their famous steamed dumplings!

Ever since Dongfang Bai had invited her to eat at Ruyi tavern after the dragon boat race, Le Yao Yao had thoroughly fallen in love with Ruyi tavern’s steamed dumplings.

Sadly, Ruyi tavern was the best tavern in the Capital. As a result, all the items inside were extremely pricey.

A simple basket of steamed dumplings costed one silver tael!

This is what a basket of steamed dumplings looks like. They’re called xiaolongbao!!

One silver tael!

To little eunuchs like herself who made two silver taels a month, this was definitely unaffordable.

Sadly, she could not erase the delicious taste from her mind.

In fact, she had dreamt of the steamed dumplings several times since then. Could she be dreaming once again?!

Although Le Yao Yao was in a semi unconscious state, her sense of smell was very good.

Her eyes were shut, but her nose was sniffing. Le Yao Yao could feel her saliva overflowing.

Subconsciously, she began to lick her pink lips.

Currently, she looked like a gluttonous kitten.

Suddenly, a low laughter entered her ears.

Le Yao Yao recognized the sound of that laugh.

“Huh? Brother Bai?”

Her eyelashes slowly fluttered open and Le Yao Yao gazed at Dongfang Bai in confusion.

Dongfang Bai gave Le Yao Yao his elegant, mesmerizing smile. Then, he dangled the bag of steamed dumplings in front of Le Yao Yao’s face.

“Brother Yao, are you hungry? I’ve brought you some steamed dumplings!”

“Wahhhh! Brother Bai, you’re so sweet!! Earlier, I thought I was dreaming! I dreamt I was eating steamed dumplings! It turned out it’s reality!” Le Yao Yao enthusiastically chirped.

*gulu gulu*. The crisp, loud sound of Le Yao Yao’s stomach rumbling was very evident.

Le Yao Yao couldn’t help but turn red from embarrassment. She gave Dongfang Bai an awkward smile, “Hehe. Sorry, I’m starving. Please don’t laugh at me, brother Bai!”

“Haha. If you’re hungry, then hurry and eat! If the steamed dumplings turn cold, they won’t taste as good.”

Seeing how Le Yao Yao was touching his flat stomach with a pouty cute expression on his face, Dongfang Bai began to smile wider.

Hearing this, Le Yao Yao quickly reached inside the bag and stuffed a steamed dumpling in her mouth.

She began to chew on the soft texture as the juices of the dumpling entered her mouth. Now, Le Yao Yao was smiling so much that her eyes looked like a half crescent moons. Her face was filled with bliss. She was brimming with joy. It was as if she had taken over the whole world.

Dongfang Bai was surprised to see how satisfied Le Yao Yao was from eating a steamed dumpling.

After all, humans were selfish animals. Most were greedy and chased after power. Very rarely would people be satisfied with anything.

Yet, this teenager in front of him was so easily satisfied. Hence, Dongfang Bai’s smile grew deeper. Suddenly, the way he gazed at Le Yao Yao softened.

  1. Those two….oh my. One day, they’ll manage to bait each other off a cliff, lol. Poor King of hell still sulking. Thanks a lot for the chappie!

  2. So…how many months since her pregnancy? Or at least, what is the time line? I think she will notice if she doesn’t have her time of the month…

    1. It’s supposedly May and she arrived in April. So probably around a month?! The host of the original body got pregnant probably right before Le Yao Yao transmigrated into this body.

      But the novel is insanely draggy and long. I was reading ahead again and there’s another 30k Chinese characters before she actually goes to the palace to perform. It’s nuts. 😖😖 I am already trying to minimize the bs and get straight to the point but there will be some important development I have to translate. Sigh. 😪😪😪😪😪 Thanks for reading all my work, Normal Guy! 😊

      1. Oh geez…. She’s such an airhead, especially for someone born in the modern world, detecting pregnancy should be easy. Especially if it’s one month, she should’ve already notice her period missing, nauseating, eating too much etc. But thank you for translating this book very much… every updates makes me happy… <3

        1. Not really, if one don’t think about it, one doesn’t know. Because according to her, she’s still a virgin lol

          Thanks Grace for getting rid of all the bs, when I read b’s I mostly scan over them, so definitely don’t waste your time on them!

          1. And If her previous body’s cycle was on the longer time she might just think that it is normal, so I am guessing she won’t realize for another 1 or 2 months.

            Thanks for the chapter.

          2. Both Bulgingeyes and Nea-er’s thoughts are right on point.Besides she had so many accidents since she entered this body she may ignore almost anything short of death. So I guess we will be waiting for a little while longer.

            Than you

  3. Forget snusnu, jealousy is my jam. I’m buckling up my seatbelt and I’m ready for the ride (even if the pace is going to be that of a kiddie train 😂). Choo choo~

  4. LJY needs to stop sulking and step up his game! Wait… will the Empress Dowager fall in love with Le Yao Yao too! :O
