Du Zhu and the Empress Dowager’s Various Matters (44)
Bai Weiwei went out of the gate, and Xiao Mo followed.
Before walking long, suddenly several little punks rushed over, “Yo, little girl, came out to buy some things, ah. Come, give your gege1 a hug.”
Bai Weiwei gave the system a haha laugh, “Next, I will definitely be teased, and then Mu Yanjun will come to act out the hero rescuing the beauty.”
The system silently gave a like.
Ultimately others did not wait for the hero to save the beauty. Xiao Mo straightened her sleeves, and directly rushed past. A couple punches, and a few kicks later, everything was settled.
“Your mother, little punks. Dare to bully us, I’ll kill you.”
One of them hugged her thigh and whispered, “Grandma, we’re your own people.”
Xiao Mo sent him flying with a kick, “Go to your own people, roll.”
In the distance, Mu Yanjun had a black face, the remaining subordinates shuddered, “It is an accident, an accident, ah, Du Zhu.”
Xiao Mo finished kicking people and returned to Bai Weiwei’s side, “Miss, don’t be afraid, even if there were dozens of these weak shrimps I could pinch them with one finger.”
Bai Weiwei and the system: “…”
After buying things, when it was time to go home, Bai Weiwei expected that today was another day with no favorability harvest.
Consequently, just as they turned a corner, who knows what Xiao Mo saw. She hurriedly said: “I need to use the toilet, I’ll be back soon.”
With that, she ran away on a slip of smoke.
She had just left, when Bai Weiwei was stunned to see a few little punks with black and blue faces swollen to the size of pig’s heads, back online again.
“Yo, little lady, is back from shopping, do you not want us to help you carry your… pei. That’s not it, give daddy a touch. “
Bai Weiwei with the system: Even with work injuries they’re still sticking to their post, too dedicated.
Bai Weiwei gently coughed, but also very conscientiously made her complexion pale. She coldly voiced, “What are you going to do, don’t come over, I will shout for people.”
Little punk: “Scream then, even if you cry until your throat splits no one in the capital will save you.”
Bai Weiwei: “…”
Can’t you change the line?
Bai Weiwei with a white face, backed away a couple steps, the little punks approached step by step.
Soon she had no place to retreat. Although she was afraid, she was still trying to be calm.
“This is the imperial city, you are doing such illegal things, aren’t you afraid of being accused?”
Little punk scornfully smiled, “This Laozi2 knows some people up top, if the officials heard their legs would go soft.”
When he was finished, he reached out to touch her hand.
Without waiting for the hand to close the distance, his hand was directly broken.
The little punk screamed and immediately scrambled back several steps.
“It’s not night but the younger generation also dares to do bad things in broad daylight.”
A clear voice, as nice to hear as the sound of flowing water.
A man in a white robe, carrying a book box, and holding a bamboo umbrella. His back to Bai Weiwei, an exuberant spirit, and a handsome and clear manner.
Little punk snorted twice, “Who do you think you are, daring to block this daddy from finding some fun.”
The man stepped forward, his handsome face clearly gentle and mild, but the eyes were stained with silky black energy.
“Oh, I’ll give you a bit of fun.”
Done talking, he strode forward and with the bamboo umbrella in his hand beat them over the head.
The little punks were on the run, but before they escaped they did not forget to shout a cannon fodder line, “This Laozi will remember you. You better not be the sort to run.”
After the man finished kicking people, the stormy black energy in his eyes disappeared, becoming very clear.
He turned back and whispered, “Were you frightened?”
Bai Weiwei raised her head and looked at him, then bowed her head, and in a warm voice said: “Thank you Gongzi3, if it was not for you, I may not have gotten away.”
The man laughed, and his laughter was particularly cheerful, “This is just a small effort, the thing most incomprehensible to me is domineering, bullying types of people.”
1: Gege= Elder brother. If I remember correctly Piper translates sibling terms into English when they refer to actual siblings but leaves them as is in other cases to remain consistent with a previous translator.↩
2: Laozi, Piper translates this as is so I will too. When ever I see it I read it the same way I read Ore-sama.↩
3: Gongzi= Noble/aristocratic son. Most people translate this as ‘young master’, but I must admit that I hate the way that makes everyone sound like they’re their butlers. If it were my own translation I’d probably just leave it as ‘Gongzi’ to preserve the character’s dignity, but the final decision is with the editor. (ay let's leave it as is I've always liked the sound of gongzi better)↩
