Chapter 171: Daring
Translator: TYZ Editor: Book_Hoarder
Even though both of them were listening to a cheerful Chinese song in the car, they were discussing serious issues.
After talking for quite some time, both of them became silent again. The empress pondered over Ren Baqian's words and Dayao's future.
Previously, while she was in Dayao, she did not feel anything. Even though Dayao still had some catching up to do before it could reach the level of the Chen Nation and the Yun Nation, it wasn't as bad as the disparity between Dayao and Earth.
However, after arriving in this world, she felt that something had to be done.
The only thing that aboriginals could be proud of was their powerful individual fighting strength.
According to Ren Baqian, who used the term "society progress level" to describe the development level of a world, the disparity between the society progress level of Earth and Dayao was far too great.
Ren Baqian placed his hands behind his head. Occasionally, he would take a look at the empress's side profile and then the white clouds in the blue sky.
After a long while, Ren Baqian, "Should we do our barbecue here? I'll get down and make preparations first."
They were near to a beach, but the quality of the sand beneath their feet wasn't really good. There were also many reefs in their surroundings. However, it was a new style of environment compared to those tranquil beaches.
Ren Baqian took out the barbecue grill and charcoal and found a good spot to start fire. Following which, he went back to the car to grab the marinated meat.
Soon after, Ren Baqian and the empress were seated on small stools on the beach with the sea right beside them. Even though the small stools paled in comparison to the chairs in those high-class hotels, they were very comfortable to sit on.
Every now and then, Ren Baqian would place the barbecued meat on a plate and pass it to the empress.
"No matter how high-class those places are, they still pale in comparison to your imperial palace. Living the life of an ordinary individual like this is still more interesting. For an ordinary individual, living a life like this is considered bragging to other people. For Your Majesty, it's considered enjoying life." Ren Baqian rambled endlessly without getting to the point. He also did not care whether or not would the empress reply to him.
After eating the barbecued meat, the empress finished the entire bottle of baijiu by herself. Even so, her eyes remained crystal-clear.
[baijiu - a Chinese alcoholic beverage made from grain.]
"Do you know that Earth is round? Earth is just a small planet in this boundless universe. There are countless planets like Earth. On these planets, there are various types of intelligent lives. For example, Autobots, Decepticons, Ultraman, Super Saiyans" Ren Baqian began bullshitting after drinking half a bottle of baijiu.
To convince the empress, Ren Baqian purposely found a clip of Transformers on his phone and showed it to her. When the empress saw the battle between humans and the Transformers, she was dumbstruck.
Her gaze was glued to the screen, subconsciously thinking what she should do if she encountered such enemies in the future.
Even though the other party was enormous in size, made out of metal and carried various types of weapons, she could still handle them. However, countless ordinary aboriginals would die effortlessly in their hands.
Ren Baqian was amused when he saw the pensive look on the empress's face. The smile on his face became wider and wider.
Incidentally, the empress raised her head and saw the smile on Ren Baqian's face. Immediately, she realized the clip was the "movie" that Ren Baqian had mentioned earlier. Her face turned cold instantly.
"You're lying to me!"
"Ahhhhhh" Ren Baqian's voice dragged across the air. He then fell into the water with a loud splash.
Ren Baqian was shocked when he dropped into the water. He did not expect the water to be so deep and his feet couldn't touch the seabed as well. Furthermore, he did not know how to swim.
"Help Gurgle. Hel.... Gurgle" Ren Baqian could feel the seawater gushing into his mouth. He couldn't find anything to hold on to as he kept on struggling for his life.
When the empress saw Ren Baqian struggling up and down in the water, she knitted her eyebrows.
A red shadow flew across the surface of the water like a lightning. The empress caught Ren Baqian with one hand and tapped the water surface with her other hand. The water surface was depressed and then exploded, creating a gigantic water pillar above the water.
Using the force from the explosion, the empress bounced back to the shore and threw Ren Baqian to one side.
Ren Baqian began to puke out tons of seawater. He even puked his dinner. Following which, he rolled around the sand and panted heavily.
"Hahaha..." Lying on the sand, Ren Baqian suddenly laughed out loud, looking extremely happy.
When he thought of how daring he was to scare the empress with Transformers just now, he could not help but admire himself.
Even though the empress threw him into the water in a moment of rage, she still saved him afterwards. It appeared that the empress wasn't really angry.
Perhaps this was how two lovers interacted with each other? It was a violent interaction though.
The empress cast an irritated look at that fool. Even though she never entered the water, her body was still wet. Many parts of her clothes were sticking to her body.
After Ren Baqian sobered up, he went into the water again and washed away the sand from his body. Then, he wrung his clothes and returned to his car with water dripping all over the floor. By this time, the empress was already in the car.
All the way until midnight, he drove back to the hotel.
Two of them spent two days on Hainan Island. The second day, they strolled around the island and shopped. He bought a few dresses for the empress and a new set of clothes for himself. Soon after, they took a plane back to Shencheng.
After returning to Ren Baqian's house, the empress sat on the sofa with a bag of Maltesers in her hand.
The bag of Maltesers was bought at Hainan Island. To Ren Baqian's surprise, the empress loved it very much.
Despite her phenomenal fighting strength, the empress loved to eat sweet food very much. Ren Baqian wondered whether she would get a toothache after eating so many sweets. If she really had toothache, it wouldn't be easy to find a dentist for her.
Ten minutes after they returned home, they heard someone knocking on the door. Ren Baqian opened the door and saw a middle-aged couple with a young girl that looked approximately eighteen years old standing outside. The young girl was quite pretty.
"Hello, sorry for disturbing you, we live below you. Thank you very much for what you did a few days ago," the middle-aged man held Ren Baqian's hands and said.
"Thank you very much. Actually, we wanted to come up and thank you two days ago but you weren't at home then. Just now, when we heard some noise above us, we guessed that you were back and we immediately came up to take a look." The young girl was very polite as well.
Similarly, the middle-aged woman thanked Ren Baqian repeatedly.
If it weren't for Ren Baqian, her daughter would not have been able to escape the house and would have died. Even if she survived, she would have been burned and scarred, which would have been very cruel torture to her as well.
They thanked Ren Baqian from the bottom of their hearts.
"It's no big deal. As neighbors, we should help each other." Ren Baqian smiled and waved his hands.
"I would like to treat you a meal to as a way of thanking you, what do you think? It's just a meal," the middle-aged man said.
"It's alright, it's really no big deal." Ren Baqian continued to wave his hands. He had no interest in having a meal with this family. Furthermore, the empress was still in his house.
After spending a huge amount of effort and time, Ren Baqian finally sent the family away. He closed the door and heaved a sigh of relief.
He felt it was more troublesome to be thanked by someone than to save someone.
At night, Ren Baqian watched a movie with the empress. They watch a classic ghost movie, Out of The Dark.
[Out of The Dark - A 1995 Hong Kong ghost movie starring Stephen Chow]
Ren Baqian wanted to see whether or not would the empress be scared by the ghost movie.
And just like what he expected, the empress ate the popcorn and finished watching the movie unmoved.
Even though there were some puns in the movie that she did not understand, the bomb scene still made her smile.
