Chapter 40: Xuan Bin (1)
Half a month ago, Ye Yu was ordered to replace a singsong girl who was also his trusted aide of the Singsong Department, “Lian Sheng,” who died due to a sickness. From that, Ye Yu successfully snuck into the external palace of the devil palace.
The peaceful and calm half a month passed just like that and nothing happened. There were people outside who sent information to Ye Yu, saying that the matter was almost settled and told her to prepare her things in advance.
In reality, before entering the Singsong Department, Ye Yu’s valuables and money were all taken away by the youth Devil Emperor.
Although Xuan Yi was known as someone who doesn’t expose his wealth in the palace, Ye Yu felt like he was just doubtful, thinking that she might run away.
The trust between people…
In the half a month, Ye Yu had sighed with emotions countless times, and then crossed out her nth plan of running away with no money.
The truth proved that money was necessary no matter the world she was in. Otherwise, she couldn’t even run away.
“Beauty Lian Sheng, it’s almost time. Your luggage…”
In the Singsong Department’s palace, the palace maid bestowed to the new beauty was unable to understand her behavior, one who could be lost in thought for an hour straight. Therefore, the palace maid talked and acted cautiously.
Ye Yu snapped out of her trance and couldn’t help but knit her eyebrows once she recalled the previous words.
Although she knew that “beauty” was just an address for women within the devil palace’s harem, Ye Yu found it uncomfortable that she was being called this. Thankfully, “Lian Sheng” was added after it, so Ye Yu self-hypnotized herself, saying that they weren’t calling for her.
“I have no luggage, just two outfits but it’s from the Singsong Department. So, I probably won’t be able to take it to the palace right?”
The palace maid bowed gracefully and said, “The palace where beauty is assigned will naturally prepare clothes for you.” After saying this, the palace maid secretly glanced at Ye Yu’s expression before cautiously continuing, “There’s no leader within the palace right now. There are only a total of 3 newly titled beauties including you today. The servants definitely wouldn’t dare to give you any less than what you deserved regarding your essential daily items and clothes.”
Hearing this, Ye Yu’s expression slightly changed and she couldn’t help but laugh.
How could she not tell that the palace maid was urging her to seize the opportunity to climb up the social ladder?
But Ye Yu was too lazy to explain to her, so she turned around and started to look around the room.
“Beauty Lian Sheng, do you need to bring anything else?” The palace maid inquired.
Ye Yu looked at her fingertips as if carelessly slipping it past her dress.
After confirming that her ‘brick’ phone was at the original spot, she nodded and said, “One thing.”
The palace maid looked at Ye Yu in bewilder. Then, she glanced at the newly titled beauty walking confidently towards the round table in the living room and bent down, grabbing a handful of melon seeds.
The new Beauty “Lian Sheng” smiled at the stunned palace maid and seeing that the latter didn’t give any reaction, Ye Yu glanced at the melon seeds in her hands and looked up, smiling.
“I heard that it’s a long distance from the external palace to the interior palace. While having nothing to do, I can eat a few melon seeds to relieve boredom.”
The palace maid was speechless and suddenly felt like she was serving the wrong master.
Another hour later, the three slow and swaying sedan chairs heading towards the Devil Emperor’s palace suddenly stopped.
In the middle one, Ye Yu who was munching on melon seeds paused her action and looked up towards the palace maid and inquired with a gaze.
