Chapter 400 – Concubine Who Pours Tea and Brings Water

    Chapter 400 : Concubine Who Pours Tea and Brings Water

    "Your Majesty, I can accept your terms and conditions." Han Shanyue, who had been sitting on top, suddenly voiced out.

    Emperor Le Xuan stared blankly for a moment before rejoicing about what he heard. His eyes brightened. "That is wonderful! Many thanks, Sir - no, it should be Heavenly Teacher... W-we will immediately prepare everything for you." He was so happy that he began rambling.

    Han Shanyue was a person that every nation wanted to rope in. There were countless sovereigns who offered him only the best conditions, all because he was a Heavenly Teacher. However, he refused them all.

    When he came to the Vast Sky Nation, Emperor Le Xuan did everything in his power to get him to stay. Unfortunately, Han Shanyue never agreed. Even though Emperor Le Xuan was regretting this, there was nothing that could be done.

    It was rumored that Han Shanyue's skills in martial arts were immeasurable. Up until now, everybody had only heard of his skills, but now they had finally seen it in action! Today, if it wasn't for him, Emperor Le Xuan and his subjects would've been wiped out by the red clothed musician.

    Just the thought of it was frightening. The red clothed musician had even escaped. Who knows when he'd return... Le Xuan Emperor was originally worried about this, but now those worries were swept away! As long as Han Shanyue was here, why should he be afraid of the red clothed musician?!

    "However, I do have one condition." Han Shanyue said.

    "No need to hesitate, Sir. We'll agree to it!"

    Han Shanyue looked over toward Ning Xuemo and walked over. She could feel the hairs on the back of her neck rising as she stayed on high alert while hatefully glaring at him.

    "Ning Xuemo, do you hate me?" Han Shanyue finally asked.

    Ning Xuemo didn't say anything and only sneered at him. Could this be her answer? In her heart, she wanted nothing more than to cut him up into ten thousand pieces.

    The corner of Han Shanyue's mouth twitched when he saw her reaction. He then turned to Le Xuan Emperor to set an outrageous condition. "Your Majesty, I lack a concubine by my side who will help me grind inkstones, pour tea, and fetch water for me. I see that she isn't bad. Will Your Majesty bestow her to me?!"

    Emperor Le Xuan was speechless.

    Everybody else also became speechless. It was as if a bolt of lightning had split their minds.

    Ning Xuemo opened her eyes wide and looked at Han Shanyue as if he was mental.

    Emperor Le Xuan composed himself before speaking, "Sir, did you not say that she was a black star who brings calamity to her husband? Why are you offering marriage?"

    "My life is harder than hers." Han Shanyue indifferently replied, saying that his life was much more difficult than hers, so he wasn't afraid.

    Emperor Le Xuan composed himself once again, "Sir, it's not that I don't agree, but I just find it odd. With your social standing, which woman doesn't desire you? Why this black star? It wouldn't be good if she jinxes you. I suggest you consider another woman." His gaze swept around to the women present. "I'm certain that whoever you choose, they would definitely agree."

    This was definitely not a lie. Han Shanyue's abilities, looks, and social standing made him a perfect gentleman of all women! Even if he simply wanted them to warm his bed, they'd be eager, much less the maids and concubines!

    All the women present immediately stepped forward; some of them even tried standing out.

    However, Han Shanyue never held any interest in these women, merely saying, "My standards are high. Plain women will not be able to move me, and I may even jinx them."

    All of the women present immediately turned pale and stepped back.

    Emperor Le Xuan felt a bit awkward about this. "But... But..."

    Han Shanyue shot him a glace of indifference. "Your Majesty be at ease. While I may have experienced a hard life, I will only jinx my wife and nobody else."

    ~~

    Han Shanyue... Hm... Was all his attacks on Ning Xuemo meant to let her become his concubine? If so, Han Shanyue, that's not the right way to do it...

    Speaking of which, I'm thinking of picking up a new novel to translate. Just for fun, you know? Anyone have any novels to recommend?

    Alright. What's your dream destination for travel?
