Chapter 171: Could you teach me?

Le Yao Yao sounded a bit shock. The moment she noticed the guqin, her eyes were on it the whole time. It was placed right in front of a cluster of flowers. (Note: I’ve included the pic of the guqin in the previous chapter)

In the past, she had never seen it before. Most likely, it was placed here today.

Dongfang Bai followed Le Yao Yao’s eyes and gazed at his instrument.

The guqin was an instrument that never left his side. In the past, he had never taken it outside. But since the weather was very pleasant today, he had a sudden urge to play it. So, he brought it out.

However, he hadn’t played it yet. So he smiled and modestly replied, “Somewhat.”

“Haha…”

Le Yao Yao knew that Dongfang Bai was being humble. So, she immediately raised her little face as anticipation swam in her pupils. She begged, “Brother Bai, can you play it for me?”

“I don’t see why not.”

So, Dongfang Bai stood up from his seat and stride steadily towards the direction of the flowers.

The guqin was placed on a stone table in front of the cluster of flowers. Around the stone table were many morning glory surrounding it.

This is what morning glory look like!

Since morning glory were a type of medicinal ingredient, Dongfang Bai had planted a yard filled with it. No one was allowed to tamper with it.

Although the shape of the morning glory was simple, its vibrant colour was their forte. They made the whole atmosphere appear very enchanting.

However, to Le Yao Yao, no scenery could compare with this man. Dongfang Bai’s white robe was as white as snow. He was untainted by even a speck of dust. A person as pure as him was rare on this Earth!

While Le Yao Yao was sighing on the inside, Dongfang Bai had already sat down on his stone seat in front of the guqin.

“What song would you like to hear?”

“Eh? Brother Bai, you decide!”

After all, she had no idea what type of songs were popular in this era.

“Alright then. I’ll play a song called ‘Drunken cool breeze’”.

Dongfang Bai placed his graceful hands gently on the instrument. Then, his slender jade-like fingers began to fly across the strings and elegant notes began to leak out from his fingertips.

Le Yao Yao felt as if she was placed in a world where there were hundreds and thousands of flowers blooming around her. In addition, there were thousands of colourful butterflies fluttering above her.

Vaguely, Le Yao Yao felt as if she could hear the sounds of a running creek.

Le Yao Yao felt as if she was intoxicated. The corners of her mouth curved into a smile because of the touching melody.

There was a light breeze blowing by and caused the morning glory to sway gently alongside with it. They were like colourful fairies dancing in the background.

Dongfang Bai’s pupils reflected the golden sun rays of the Sun. It was filled with intense emotions as he gazed lovingly at Le Yao Yao.

However, Le Yao Yao was too immersed in the music to notice.

When the last note was played, Le Yao Yao gradually began to snap back into reality. Then, she clapped enthusiastically .

“Oh God! What a beautiful song! The melody was so lovely! Brother Bai, you’re amazing!”

Le Yao Yao was very touched and only admiration could be seen in her eyes. After all, she had never heard such a touching performance in her life! It had such an ancient graceful feel to it!

“You’re exaggerating too much. Haha…”

Deep down, Dongfang Bai knew his musical skills were quite high. Those who have heard him play always praised him nonstop. But there wasn’t a single person whose praise could make him as happy as Le Yao Yao’s.

Her excitement, tone of voice, and sincerity made him feel like he was invincible.

Le Yao Yao ran to Dongfang Bai and with eyes filled with hope, she clasped her hands together and pleaded.

“Brother Bai, you’re such a good player. I want to learn too! Could you be my teacher?!”

“What? You want to learn how to play?”

“Yes.”

Le Yao Yao nodded like she was pounding on garlic.

She truly wanted to learn! One day, she hopes to be able to play as beautifully as Dongfang Bai!

Dongfang Bai could see the determination in Le Yao Yao’s eyes. So, after thinking about it for a few seconds, he smiled and replied, “Sure. I can teach you.”

“Really?! Brother Bai?! You will teach me?!”

“Haha. That’s not a big deal. As long as you want to learn, I can teach you. But I must first remind you that mastering an instrument requires perseverance. You must not abandon and give up halfway.” Dongfang Bai was very firm and serious.

“Yes! I understand!”

“Alright then. I will teach you how to play now. I will play it again. This time, watch me play. You will slowly begin to understand a little.”

Dongfang Bai closed his eyes and the intoxicating melody began to leak from his fingers again.

When he got to the end, the notes still lingered in the air like smoke.

Dongfang Bai took a deep breath as he gradually opened his eyes once more. Then, he turned towards Le Yao Yao, “Did you pay attention to my fingers?”

“Yes.”

“Alright. Now, it’s your turn to play.”

“What? I don’t know how to play though!”

“I know you don’t. But have you ever came in contact with a guqin before?”

“Nope.”

Le Yao Yao was being honest. She had only attempted to play the piano back in the 21st century.

“That’s why you must start now. I’m not expecting you to play it perfectly. However, I need you to touch the instrument. In order to learn, you must first understand the structure of the instrument and the pitch. You need to place your hand in the correct position. In the future, when you’ve mastered the basics, I will give you a booklet for you to study. Eventually, you will gain a better understanding.”

“Alright, I will give it a try now.”

Le Yao Yao was excited. To her, the guqin was like a new toy. Dongfang Bai couldn’t help but smile at her attitude as he stood up and offered the seat to her.

But when Le Yao Yao sat down in front of the instrument, she began to freak out. After all, this must be a priceless instrument. What if she breaks it?

Dongfang Bai could sense the fear on Le Yao Yao’s face. He immediately added.

“Don’t be afraid. Just give it a try.”

“Okay.”

Since Dongfang Bai gave her so much encouragement, Le Yao Yao was in a good mood as she reached out her hands to touch the strings. She imitated Dongfang Bai’s fingers and began to play.

    1. Thank you so much. Yeah..there’s a lot of filler. If you read the raws, your brain will rot. lol… you can read 13000 words but nothing is happening… O_O

  7. …I’m still waiting for Dong FangBai to take a good look at her butt, and realize he fell for his sister. I haven’t read the raws, I just assume that’s what’s going to happen. XD

    1. lol I think the author made a mistake…unless Le Yao Yao has multiple marks on her body?? Apparently the King of Hell identifies Le Yao Yao based on the mole near her boobs (this happens much much later on)… I forget. -_-” I guess Le Yao Yao has marks on her boobs and butt?? LOLOL
