Chapter 82 Part 3
Xia Yuqing looked at him in sympathy. Subsequently, without feeling any burden, she ignored his miserable sour expression and stepped forward to pull on Xu Lao's hand. Smiling, she said: "Since Xu Ge is back, why don't you go to disciple's place to chat? Disciple hasn't seen you in a long time and there's a lot I want to tell Xu Ge about."

To put it nicely, you could say Xia Yuqing is someone who makes a clear difference on what she loves and hates. Whoever treats her nicely, she would naturally treat nicely as well. If put in an unpleasant way, then she could be called stupidly cute.
Xu Lao and Zhang Suns.h.i.+ were the world's only two seniors who loved Xia Yuqing dearly. Although the time they had been in contact hadn't been long, they both treated her like a treasure and she has always kept this in mind.Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
Therefore, she would only act cute and spoiled in front of them. Xu Lao is infatuated with mechanisms so, to this day, he has not married, not to mention has any sons or heirs.
Usually, because of his strange hobbies, he would have a hard time making friends. And, while the people who were trying to become close to him to be his disciple were many, it was more in reverence. They were not like Xia Yuqing who would dare act coquettishly. Yet this completely suited his taste, so how could he not love her?
Once he heard Xia Yuqing say that, Xu Lao at once was extremely cheerful and patted Xia Yuqing's hand: "That won't do. Before I go to your place, I have to go to youngster Feng and report."
"That works." Xia Yuqing nodded her head. "This disciple will send you to His Majesty first."
"Okay, okay. Let me tell you this time when I went out……" Xu Lao was preparing to talk with Xia Yuqing a good while along the way, but when he turned around he came into contact with Xia Mingyuan. Frowning he said: "This isn't right. Liu Ya Tou, if this fellow isn't your mistress, why are you following him around? Could it be… that he is forcing himself on you?"
"……" everyone standing nearby had the mouths drawn into a straight line. With lady Liu's skills, shouldn't it be her forcing herself onto others. Who would ever dare to carelessly mess with her? Do they not want to live?!
"This matter is complicated. This all started on that moonless windy night…." Liu Yixiang's hands and feet were dancing as she added details while telling her story. During this time, she would even emphasize the fact that she, herself, was innocent as well as a certain someone was capricious. Since she had become a certain someone's personal Ya Tou, she has been forced to do all sorts of things, making all listeners broken-hearted and teary eyed.
Just as expected, after hearing Liu Yixiang tell her story, Xu Lao felt that looking at Xia Mingyuan was increasingly annoying. On the spot, he let out a snort as if Xia Mingyuan's existence was beneath him: "This youngster isn't just a fool, but is even more narrow minded than youngster Feng."
"……" Xia Mingyuan felt like he was shot in the knees for no reason.Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
Hearing him say that, Liu Yixiang laughed in delight then gave him a look to provoke him.
Xia Mingyuan's lips twitched. One would rather provoke an evil person than a woman. The ancients have not lied to me. He is soon to be played to death by two women!Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
"Cough cough……" Xia Yuqing silently expressed her sympathy for the Great Seme Lord who was ridiculed just for being there, then she spoke out in reminder: "Xu Ge, it's getting late. Let's not tarry any longer. If we don't head to His Majesty's now, then we won't make it in time for lunch. Your disciple will get Lu Rui to prepare your favourite crispy salted chicken, so once you return you can eat it immediately."
Xu Lao's eyes sparkled: "That is a good idea. Lu Rui that Ya Tou's skills are pretty good. Since I have left, I haven't been able to eat her dishes and am feeling glutinous. My disciple really loves me best."
With great difficulty, Xu Lao was convinced to enter Qian Qing palace. As he was arriving, he noticed that Xia Mingyuan was also entering.Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
"……"Xia Mingyuan could tell that this dawn of the new era was just him dropping from one disaster to another, like the calm before the storm. Now, this senior probably hates him bitterly.
Turning around to look at Xia Yuqing, since he was born he had never regretted this much. If he knew that committing an offense towards Xia Yuqing would incur so much hostility then, at that time, he would not have advanced forward to speak out of turn. Instead, he would have hid himself as far away as possible. This is why men shouldn't provoke a woman's anger. Even if they are loved or have a backing, a mimosa plant could easily become a carnivorous plant!
Xia Yuqing was oblivious to the knot in Xia Mingyuan's heart. Receiving his grudging look, she only thought he was still suspicious of her and at once hid behind Liu Yixiang.
But soon after, her attention was quickly grabbed by that person's shadow, who was silently crouching in a corner.
"Huh, isn't that Gorgeous Tutor's young scholar? What is he doing crouching over there?" Having good eyesight, she seemed to see the young scholar counting ants in the corner. At the same time, she reached out to grab Liu Yixiang to head over there.
"Young scholar, young scholar…. What are you doing over here? Where's your master?" Xia Yuqing enthusiastically patted the young scholar's shoulder. The young scholar drew in a cold breath and rushed to block the thing behind her. Looking at Xia Yuqing in a stupefied manner, she pointed to herself and asked: "Niang Niang, are you asking me?"
"What me me me. In front of Niang Niang make sure to call yourself Nu Cai. Which palace are you from?" The palace maid who was serving them immediately lifted her eyebrow and scolded the young scholar.
"She isn't a palace person, we don't have to be so strict." Xia Yuqing rushed to block the maid behind her. This Ya Tou is from Gorgeous Tutor's. If she messed with her then, later on, where is she going to find an exact same one for Gorgeous Tutor!
"Speaking of, young scholar, I don't even know what your name is." Xia Yuqing stared at the young scholar for a while, her heart couldn't help but click it's tongue. If only this Ya Tou was a man then it would've been way better. Looking at that, this little body doesn't seem capable of enduring even a grasp and that delicate skin! This Ya Tou is remarkably like a beautiful Uke! Looking closer, the skin looks even better. Oh, I really want to give it a pinch!
The young scholar stared blankly then quietly replied: "Yuan….. Yuan Er."Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
"Huh?"Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
"Yuan Er, I'm called Yuan Er. Zhi Yuan's (kite) Yuan. Yuan Er repeated herself once again uncomfortably.
"Zhi Yuan's Yuan. What a good name. Why are you here by yourself dazing off. Where is your master?"
"My master?" Yuan Er didn't seem to understand the question.Please support this novel by reading at lazygirltranslations dot com
"Yes, the Grand Tutor." Xia Yuqing looked at Yuan Er's innocent appearance and couldn't bear it. What a good child, but was taken by the Gorgeous Tutor? Ravaged like this, it's a tragedy.
"Oh you are speaking about Gong Zi. Gong Zi just went inside to report something to His Majesty, so I am waiting here for him."
Gong Zi!? Grand Tutor's residence only has Grand Tutor as the only master, yet he has someone call him Gong Zi? Tsk, tsk. I couldn't tell that Gorgeous Tutor was such a vain person. As expected, similar things flock together! In fact, allowing such an adorable girl in the scorching sun to wait for him, he really doesn't know how to treat females.
