Du Zhu and the Empress Dowager’s Various Matters (10)
Bai Weiwei felt moved: “Is it something to worry about?”
The system responded with an affirming voice, then…
【Ding, the host’s task is to get the love of Mu Yanjun, the target is Mu Yanjun, and the degree of completion is zero. Duration six months.】
The moved Bai Weiwei: “…”
The system explained: “And, well, the taste of this plane is a bit heavy, and I was scared at the beginning and forget to relay the parameters to you.”
Bai Weiwei: mdzz
Then Bai Weiwei finally had time to check her location. When she surveyed her surroundings, she saw rats and cockroaches scurrying about.
The imperial doctor outside the cell, respectfully informed Mu Yanjun, “When the Empress Dowager wakes up, she will be fine.”
Mu Yanjun was holding a handkerchief in his hand, and his slender and beautiful fingers showed a jade-like color under the light and shadow.
His eyelids were slightly lifted and he spoke slowly: “If she won’t die it’s fine, just go on.”
Then he examined the frail Bai Weiwei lying on the straw in the cell.
She seemed to be somewhat confused. Her brows were slightly picked up, appearing delicate and soft and her condition was completely exhausted.
But when she saw who was sitting outside the cell, the weakness in her misty eyes disappeared. Only a tranquil calm remained.
Mu Yanjun crushed the handkerchief in his hand and really couldn’t wait to wipe that calmness off her face.
“Empress Dowager, have you woken up?” He asked rhetorically, his impassive visage filled with malice.
Bai Weiwei didn’t lift her eyes, just continued blankly staring at the wall even as a big rat ran from the side. She didn’t even seem to know how to be afraid.
Mu Yanjun smiled somberly “The Empress Dowager saw it, want to know why the rats in this prison are so fat.”
Bai Weiwei did not speak and did not react, intent on treating Mu Yanjun as if he were air.
“Because these rats, were raised eating human flesh, and most of them ate live human flesh.”
Mu Yanjun’s eyes were even heavier as he studiously observed Bai Weiwei.
He couldn’t believe this woman could be so composed.
How many big sturdy men entered his prison and without any torture instruments so much as touching their bodies, just listening to a few words of his description, they would immediately become horrified.
“The people here are often tortured and once they can no longer get up. That’s when the rats swarm, they will devour the live, raw human flesh.”
The system silently touched its ear: “So scary, baby don’t listen.”
Bai Weiwei was coldly to the system: “Not interested.”
Mu Yanjun let the handkerchief slowly fall to the ground, extended his clean hand and took the knife next to him.
“You know what the knife in my hand is used for?”
Bai Weiwei gave him a faint glance that held no emotional fluctuations at all. It was as if Mu Yanjun, in her eyes, was not even as good as the air.
Mu Yanjun couldn’t help but tighten his hold on the knife. He said with anger: “This is for cutting meat. It cuts down bit by bit and then it cuts the bones. A living person becomes a plate of meat.”
The system was scared. “It’s terrifying. I have to apply to leave this plane and exchange this male pig.”
Bai Weiwei faintly recited: “Boiled duck, roast chicken, broiled goose, fish head, braised pork, barbecued ribs, fried shrimp, salted meat… I ate boundlessly in the big country, what meat have I not seen, want to scare me with human flesh, hmph.”
System: I can’t look directly at these foods after hearing that.
Mu Yanjun gripped the knife’s handle hard enough to turn his knuckles white. She didn’t even look at him, she didn’t have any fear.
This made him become anxious and irritable.
Mu Yanjun got up, kicked the door in, knife in hand. Immediately came to Bai Weiwei, and pressed the knife to her cheek.
“It seems that the Empress Dowager is thinking I am afraid to use the method I just described on you?”
Bai Weiwei looked at him indifferently, and finally her expression changed, a countenance of contempt.

Piper’s Corner: I know its been a while, and I know a lot of you have been asking in the comments about how some people were able to read this next arc ahead of time. The answer is that TheWhiteBook had kindly translated this whole arc by themselves and put it up on the comment section where me and my team nabbed it up to edit and officially publish. I have been bombarded with homework and haven’t been able to do anything much, and the new ads are still in beta testing for me, so please tell me if any are disrupting the content, I’ll find a way to move them! < I just noticed the ads disrupting content, but I don’t know where in the code that is causing those ads to appear is at the moment, so I’ll fix that first thing tomorrow after school, sorry!
One last thing, for those not on the discord, I will be posting 10 chapters a day until end of this arc! (about a week or so, cuz this one is decently long) So if you want to read it all in one go, come back in a week because they’ll all be out. Thank you for your patience; here’s the first batch!
