Du Zhu and the Empress Dowager’s Various Matters (45)
Bai Weiwei smiled a bit too. Unlike her previously melancholic smile, she appeared very delighted.
“Yes, I am Jun Buyan1, where is your house? I’ll give you a ride.”
Bai Weiwei was just about to refuse, when suddenly it began to rain.
Jun Buyan took one look before he shook open the umbrella in his hand, and directly covered her head.
“It’s raining. It seems like this journey, I’ll have to send you. “
Bai Weiwei smiled shyly, “Then I will trouble Gongzi.”
Two people in the rain, one handsome, one delicate. Looking like a golden boy and jade girl transcendentally ascending.
In the distance a bunch of people crouched in the alley, including that group of little punks.
“Xiao Mo, when can we go?”
A little punk said.
Xiao Mo balled her fist, “Where will you go, want to be the big light2 between the Du Zhu and the lady? Just stay here, you guys.”
After traveling a fair distance, Bai Weiwei suddenly tripped on a stone. She quickly stabilized her body, but who knew her legs were a bit numb, she fell straight forward.
Jun Buyan reached out to catch her and pulled her into his arms.
Bai Weiwei trembled, her face a little flushed, and swiftly stood up, “Sorry, I was careless.”
Jun Buyan felt his hand was filled with something fragrant, his eyes deepened, “Roads are slippery on rainy days, it was bound to happen.”
At the door of the house, Bai Weiwei paused, “Then thank you Gongzi.”
Jun Buyan: “No need for thanks, my home is next to yours, it was just on the way.”
As soon as Bai Weiwei heard this, she peeked up at him, she couldn’t help but grin.
This smile was different from those times in the palace, it was lively and overflowing with joy.
Jun Buyan only felt that his heart had leapt up, the her away from the palace, was simply incredibly beautiful and fresh.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is at 85.】
The system looked at this, and looked at that.
It was just two big plays.
The difference was one donned a mask, and the other wore a skin.
Since that day, Bai Weiwei often met Jun Buyan.
Slowly, she became familiar with him.
The favorability level also rose from eighty-five to eighty-eight.
The system took out a calendar and flipped the pages. Then knocked on the drifting along, eating, and waiting for death host, “There is only one month left of mission time, work hard host.”
Bai Weiwei was painting SpongeBob SquarePants, replied: “I think drifting along, eating, and waiting for death is really wonderful. It’s only now that I’ve realized that efforts are not necessarily successful, not working hard is very easy, ah.”
System: “Five lightning strikes from heaven.”
The brush in Bai Weiwei’s hand snapped in half, this broken system would not allow her to be lazy.
She had no choice but to go out. Having seen the flowers in the garden were all open, she picked a flower and pinned it in her hair.
The system alerted: “The male lead is outside.”
Bai Weiwei nodded, and went out. She thought she would see Jun Buyan.
But in actuality, not far away she saw a few high horses, Mu Yanjun was riding at the front.
He had restored his original appearance, his bewitching beauty could send tremors through peoples hearts.
He seemed to be doing something. Sitting properly, and leaning over to command the man below.
Bai Weiwei blanked a second, then glanced at him.
Mu Yanjun also looked up, the pair’s line of sight intertwined into one.
Bai Weiwei’s thoughts tumbled about, and eventually the expression she used to look at him became complicated.
This look held pain, there were memories, but finally it was relieved into a calm.
She suddenly smiled, airy and relaxed.
It was like she put down her burden and then spun on her toes toward the yard next door.
When Mu Yanjun saw her calm back, his heart couldn’t help but groan, he had a bad hunch.
This period was the happiest time he ever had.
1: His name is ‘慕言君’Mu(admire) Yan(word)jun(monarch/ruler) his alias is ‘君不言’Jun Bu(no/not)yan. I want all the comments to make some time to mock his lazy pseudonym because it made the rest of the arc take significantly longer and more frustrating to translate.↩
2: Big light=third wheel.↩
