Chapter 137: You Lie to Me
Translator: TYZ Editor: Book_Hoarder
Draped in a red dress, the empress stood in the snow. With her hair drifting in the wind, she touched and felt the falling snowflakes with her delicate fingers. At that instance, Ren Baqian's heartbeat quickened yet again.
If it was possible, he wanted to use the camera on his phone to capture this scene.
Her beauty rendered him dumbstruck.
"Your Majesty, it's cold outside," Ren Baqian said softly. At the same time, he noticed the empress wasn't wearing shoes.
Just now in Dayao, she suddenly disappeared from her couch and appeared right in front of him, and he teleported to Earth with her at that very moment. That was why she wasn't wearing her shoes at this moment.
The empress turned around and cast a glance at him. Her hair was still drifting in the wind. A few strands of her hair covered her exquisite and alluring face.
A tinge of coldness flashed across the empress's eyes.
The next moment, the empress grabbed Ren Baqian by his throat and flung him onto the wall.
"You lie to me!" the empress said coldly.
"I trusted you but you have been lying to me." The empress reached out her right hand, looking as though she was waiting for Ren Baqian to give an explanation. A powerful aura was exuding from her body, appearing as if she was going to flip out soon.
"Cough, cough." Ren Baqian felt his chest tighten. Beads of perspiration flowed down his forehead. The aura from the empress felt like a mountain to him, rendering him motionless.
"Boom." The window and glass door at the balcony exploded.
Crash. Shattered glass fell all over the floor.
"Your Majesty, I don't know what's going on too. All this time, I can't control it at all. Otherwise, why would I disappear once every three days? Isn't it obvious? Why would I lie to you? I don't know whether it's because of [Ruyi Visualization] or other reasons. Just now, I was thinking why I didn't return to Earth and then suddenly I am back here," Ren Baqian explained in a hurry.
If the empress really flipped out, he would be in deep trouble. Even if the empress did not kill him after they returned to Dayao, she would not let him off easily.
The empress held Ren Baqian by his throat, raised him up and pressed him against the wall. "I want to know how much of the things you told me is true?"
Ren Baqian's throat was tightly grasped by the empress. Beads of perspiration continued to flow down his forehead.
"If I have a choice, I definitely want to stay with Your Majesty in the same world forever. It's meaningless for me to stay in a world without Your Majesty. I don't want a future that doesn't include Your Majesty. I don't know what happened this time around, but I really don't have the intention of lying to you," Ren Baqian replied with difficulty.
The empress stared into Ren Baqian's eyes, looking as though she was trying to see if Ren Baqian was lying.
After a long while, Ren Baqian slid to the ground. Holding his own throat, he coughed violently.
Just now, he felt as though he was suffocating.
Fortunately, fresh air filled his lungs and revived him.
Just now, while Ren Baqian was crushed by the empress's aura, the residents that lived below him felt something crushed against their bodies as well. Their bodies were rendered motionless and they even had difficulty breathing.
Someone even wanted to call 120. After the empress withdrew her aura, these people recovered. For safety sake, some of them hurried to the hospital and got a medical examination.
"You better not lie to me, otherwise, I will kill you even if it means coming to this world," the empress looked at Ren Baqian and said. She stomped her barefoot on the ground and her hair rose into the air.
Ren Baqian sat on the ground and leaned against the wall. With a bitter smile on his face, he replied, "Your Majesty is like a goddess to everyone, who will bear to lie to you? If someone really lies to you, either that person is a blind man or a fool. I'm neither a blind man nor a fool, therefore why would I lie to you?"
The empress's facial expression loosened up significantly. Following which, she walked to the balcony and looked outside.
The shattered glass on the could not hurt her pure-white feet at all. As the shattered glass made contact with her soles, they disintegrated into powder and were carried into Ren Baqian's house by the wind outside.
Ren Baqian sat on the floor and rested for a while before standing up.
Even though the empress was filled with rage just now, she controlled her strength very well and did not injure Rem Baqian the slightest bit.
"Your Majesty, it's cold here. Follow me to downstairs," Ren Baqian stood behind the empress and said.
"Alright." The empress nodded her head and followed Ren Baqian downstairs. Then, she sat down on the sofa.
"I want this," the empress said after she felt the softness of the sofa.
"I am already preparing it for Your Majesty. Previously in the beast park, I have already asked my men to tan some animal hides to make a sofa for Your Majesty. If I put an untanned animal hide over that type of wooden couch, it will be very hot for you to sit on. If I don't put an animal hide over the wooden couch, it will be very hard and uncomfortable. These days, I have been focusing on cultivating [Ruyi Visualization], therefore I have to delay the making of the sofa. Once I return to Dayao, I will finish making the sofa for you," Ren Baqian explained while standing beside the empress.
"Have a seat." Upon knowing Ren Baqian was preparing to make a sofa for her, the empress's tone and facial expression became gentler.
Ren Baqian finally heaved a sigh of relief and sat a distance away from the empress.
"What is this?" the empress pointed to a chandelier above her head and asked.
"Your Majesty, this is the lamp in our world but it doesn't require lamp oil to light up." Ren Baqian stood up and turned on the chandelier's switch. Immediately, the chandelier lit up. The man-made crystals beneath the chandelier reflected the light from the chandelier at the same time.
"I like how this thing doesn't need lamp oil to light up, I want it." The empress looked at the chandelier with a fascinated look on her face.
Upon hearing the empress's words, Ren Baqian quickly thought about how to produce electricity in Dayao. He had to make sure there was electricity in Yangxin Palace Hall at least. He could easily obtain a diesel-fueled generator, but how could he produce diesel? He couldn't possibly bring diesel along with him every time he returned to that world, right? In any case, he was incapable of bringing too much diesel with him.
Perhaps he should see whether or not there were any human-powered generators for sale. He should also think of a way to store electricity in Dayao.
"What is that?" the empress asked again.
Ren Baqian followed the direction of the empress's gaze and replied hurriedly, "That is a clock, it's used to measure time. In our world, we use second as the base unit for time. Every time the finest needle moves, it means one second has passed. Sixty seconds make up one minute, which is shown by the longest needle. Sixty minutes make up one hour. There are twenty-four hours in a day."
Ren Baqian looked at the clock and explained to the empress. At this moment, the clock showed 10:17 in the morning.
One hour in that world was approximately equivalent to three hours on Earth. It was eleven in the morning when Ren Baqian met the empress just now in that world. In that world, one day was thirty-three hours long, nine more hours than a day on Earth. Having been delayed by the tussle upstairs just now, it was 10:17 now.
"This is rather useful, I want it." Without doubt, the empress was interested in everything on Earth.
Since Ren Baqian was hers, his things naturally belonged to her as well.
"Your Majesty, are you hungry? How about I prepare something for you to eat?" Ren Baqian was afraid that the empress would claim his house as Dayao's territory on Earth soon.
"Alright." The empress nodded her head and continued to examine her surroundings.
Upon seeing that the empress was still in the state of fascination and curiosity due to arriving in a new world, he left her alone and rummaged through his fridge. Following which, he turned around and said, "Your Majesty, there's only instant noodles left."
"Cook it for me," the empress replied without even turning her head. The empress simply did not care about what she was going to eat.
You cook it, and I will eat it.
