The General Loves to Collect Little Red Flowers

Chapter 16

The rain didn’t stop until midnight. It was also inconvenient for Le Yao to go out, so he just waited for Xu Yao at home. At five o’clock in the afternoon, he prepared the ingredients for dinner and sent a message to Xu Yao, but he didn't reply. Later, when he went out to find Uncle Ming, there was no movement in his house.

Looking out of the window at the dark night sky, Le Yao unconsciously rubbed his arm.

In fact, he didn’t like the rain very much.

At nine o’clock in the evening, Xu Yao still didn’t reply his message. Le Yao put away the ingredients, took a bath and then lay down on the bed. He thought that he would fall asleep soon. After all, he hardly slept the bight before because oft his debt of more than two million yuan. But, after some time just tossed in the bed, he still couldn’t sleep, so he got up again and looking for something to do.

He took the rest of the paper – yes, he didn’t give up on this little piece of paper. After all, it was bought at the risk of being bitten by Xu Yao. He suddenly thought about it, there were so few things that he could do here. So, he simply cut the paper again, cut out six pieces of small square paper, then draw one until six points respectively, stick them together and make a dice of it.

Ji Fengyu had to run after the playing cards at least ten times when he played the poker. He was about to be fed up with it when a dice fell out of the air.

Song He immediately said, “Is Brother Xiao Le going to burn mahjong for us?”

Wang Feixia, “This time, it’s not bad. The dice proportion is good.”

Ji Fengyu: “…” I didn’t want to speak for my brother before I saw the right things with my own eyes.

Sure enough, after waiting for a long time, there was only one dice and no mahjong. So the three brothers went to Le Yao's house.

When Le Yao saw them coming, he was so happy and about to greet them. But when he just said “You..”, Wang Feixia stopped him, “Shh!”

Le Yao paused and asked "what’s wrong" with his eyes.

Wang Feixia said, “You’d better go to the bathroom. In addition, don’t type words into the communicator in the future. The intelligent assistant here is very powerful and can automatically record pictures and sounds.”

Ji Fengyu said, “Brother Wang was a programmer before he opened the small store. Although he has been in underworld for many years, he often goes out at night to see the new knowledge and technology here. You and Xu Yao are just husband and wife in name. What if he guards against you? You better to listen to Brother Wang.”

Le Yao then thought of the second level authority that Xu Yao had opened to him in the morning and the borrowed money about more than two million yuan. There was no doubt that Xu Yao was indeed so kind to him. But it was also alright to act carefully, so he went to the bathroom and talked with them.

He went to the bathroom and listened to Wang Feixia's advise. When he squatted on the floor, he clamped the communication device on his wrist, between his thigh and abdomen, and then began to write on the floor.

He told them that he couldn't go outside to find branches for incense ingredients because of the rain. When the rain stopped, he would start to prepare the incense to them.

Ji Fengyu had been hungry for hundreds of years. It was okay to wait for more days tough, they were not in hurry. The ghost brothers just tacitly took out the playing cards and played next to Le Yao, let him saw the quality and size of the poker cards that he made.

The cards were washed by Wang Feixia every time, because among the three ghost brothers, he has the smallest hand and the thinnest finger. Otherwise, when Song He and his bear like hand grasped the card, the card will not be directly seen and it will be hard to get the both side.

Le Yao felt a bit guilty: Let’s make up with this first. When I get to know Xu Yao better, it will be easier to make other things.

Ji Fengyu asked, “By the way, why hasn’t Mr. Xu Yao come back today? It’s still raining outside. Is he still working at this time?”

Le Yao: I don’t know. He didn’t reply my message.

Le Yao didn’t expect that Xu Yao didn’t come back at all that night. He waited until the second half of the night, but he didn’t see him come home. So, he cooked himself a bowl of noodles and ate it alone.

Then he thought for a long time about whether to take more paper to do handicraft or not. He finally decided to take it again! Anyway, he didn't feel sleepy so it was better to do something else. Besides, one more bite was also a bite. How many bites he would do? It was just the same anyway. And it would be polite if he could bite him back!

So Le Yao made a complete set of mahjong. This time, because of Ji Fengyu and his friends were here and watching, Le Yao was even more worried when drawing and did not forget to write the size in the mahjong. At this moment, Ji Fengyu received a little ugly stare from his brothers, but he thought in his heart 'it was okay'.

Because mahjong had too many pieces and was three-dimensional, Le Yao took a long time to make it. When he finished his work and collected the garbage, it was almost dawn and he finally felt sleepy.

Ji Fengyu said, “We will go first, and you should sleep.”

Le Yao squinted his eyes and climbed onto the bed to sleep.

The three ghost brothers took advantage of the day was not yet light, quickly floating to the grave. Song He said to Ji Fengyu, “Brother Ji, you are too mean. Why did you let Brother Xiao Le make the mahjong all night long? I feel that he has a good temper and didn't even angry at us. Give me a good reason or I will give you a fat beating!”

Ji Fengyu said, “Why do you think I did that? When he was a kid, he had some problems with his leg so he couldn't walk like normal people. His family threw him at the door of a Buddhist shop. It was raining at that day. The shop owner found him and decided to adopt him. Later he also knew about this, so he didn't like it and always felt uneasy when raining. Otherwise, with his good temper and personality, he will keep them alone and even if he's going to bed early, he won't have a good sleep either. It's better to stay up all night and doing something together with us.”

Song He: “…”

The rain was poured all day and night, and it finally stopped when the sky was fully lit up. If Le Yao read the weather forecast, he would find that today was an extremely hot and sultry day, but he would not wake up for a while.

He just slept a little but had a very bad dream.

He dreamed that Xu Yao had come back home. He asked him about his task before. Did you think about a unique nickname for me? How many pieces of paper did you use?

He saw Xu Yao’s scarlet eyes, as if they were burned with fire.

He said with trembling: No, I didn’t think about it. About ten pieces of paper?

Xu Yao said: That’s over. You are miserable now.

Then Xu Yao came to grab him, picked up his clothes and found a place to eat him…

Le Yao woke up in a flash. His heartbeat was out of control.

He found that the rain had stopped. The sun light came in through the window and spread a bright white light on the floor. When he heard the sound of water flowing in the bathroom, he walked out from the bed and found a pile of dirty clothes on the floor.


Xu Yao’s bad habit still couldn’t be changed. But…

That wasn't right! This was not the clothes that Xu Yao wore when he went out yesterday. When Xu Yao went out, he was wearing military uniforms, while those on the floor looked more like outdoor clothes. Le Yao stretched out his neck to the bathroom and asked, “General, is that you?”

There was no sound in the bathroom.

Le Yao shouted again, “Xu Yao?”

The person in the bathroom was still silent.

Le Yao was alert all of a sudden. He got out of the bedroom quietly, glanced around and picked up the pair of scissors that he used to make handicrafts. He held the scissors tightly with his hands. He walked quietly to the bathroom's door. As soon as the bathroom's door was open, Le Yao stretched out his arm in fright, and quickly pointed to the person inside with scissors: “No, don’t move!”

“Why?” Xu Yao was still drenched with water and tucked the towel on his waist, as if he didn’t put the scissors in his eyes. “Your husband just didn't come back in one night, are you that angry?”

“My god! That scared me to death!” Seeing that there was a thick layer of grievance on Xu Yao’s body, Le Yao frowned and put down the scissors. “Why didn’t you answer when I called you?”

“I won't answer if you call me like that.” Xu Yao said, “Do you have anything to eat?”

“There is no ready-made one. You have to wait a moment.” Le Yao hurriedly put back the scissors. “Is the barbecue alright? I marinated some meat last night. ”

“It's okay.” Xu Yao sat on the chair and watched Le Yao busy in the kitchen: “Have you finished the task I assigned to you? The sun is already high in the sky, yet you still sleeping on the bed, and you don’t even know that your husband already comes home."

Le Yao raised his wrists and looked at his communicator. Gosh, it was noon.

He didn’t know why Xu Yao went to that place again, but he brought back so much grievances with him. Le Yao doubted whether this guy was doing tomb robbing activities here by relying on the distance between the Tarot and Huaxia. How else could he be so rich? He took three million yuan for him without hesitation. He was not like Le family, an old generation family that has business everywhere.

Xu Yao said, “What about my question earlier? Did you finish the task I gave to you?”

Le Yao quickly put the marinated meat into the intelligent chef’s side to bake, and then cooked some rice. He said, “I can’t think of it.”

“Hmm. How many pieces of paper did you use last night?” Xu Yao asked.

Le Yao: “…”

What? No! As soon as you came back, there would be a horror movie here. Were you that bored? Just tell me if you were bored!

“It seems that a lot has been used,” said Xu Yao. "Okay, come here Le Yaoyao. ” Xu Yao pointed to his little wife, “I’ll give you a choice.”

Le Yao looked at Xu Yao defensively, “What’s the choice?”

Xu Yao said, “First, take off your clothes and lie flat on the bed. When you use a piece of paper, I will bite you once. Two, from now on, you should call me husband. ”

Le Yao: “…” You were a bully! Make trouble out of nothing!

Le Yao shook his head with courge, “Then, what if I don’t want to choose?”

Xu Yao didn't answer the question, he just stood up from the chair and approached him. Le Yao was so scared that he grabbed the carrot on the chopping board and pointed it at Xu Yao, “What are you doing?”

Xu Yao slowly closed the gap, took away the carrot, and suppressed Le Yao's body on the kitchen table. “What do you think I want to do?” he asked with a low tone and smiling face.

Le Yao was so flustered that he wanted to grab something. He subconsciously wanted to grab Xu Yao’s clothes, but he forgot that Xu Yao didn’t wear clothes at all. He was bare chest! So he caught Xu Yao’s bath towel. He wanted to shook the clothes to get his attention and discuss with Xu Yao whether he could give him more time to adapt or not.

Who would think that just because of his grab and shook act, the bath towel moved and became loose? Then a special opening was right in front of his eyes!

Le Yao was so scared and frozen on the spot. He immediately wanted to pull up the bath towel that was going to fall down. As a result, he grabbed a place that he shouldn’t grab!

The husband chuckled and said with a low voice full of interest “Where did you grab, ah?”

Le Yao: “…”

A few seconds later, Le Yao bowed his head in recognition of his life and cried out like a mosquito, “Husband…”

The author has something to say:

Le Yao: I’m not his opponent ah! (>﹏<)
