Fight for Peace and Love - Chapter 7
The New Year is always the most important holiday for Bai Luoluo.
It’s a holiday to celebrate, both in the world he was traveling into, and in his own world.
Wang Mansion was also full of the New Year’s happiness. The windows were pasted with beautiful window flowers and red lanterns hung all over the courtyard, and the door was pasted with festive spring couplets, even clothes were more colorful than usual.
Bai Luoluo sat by the fire, eating the sweet potatoes he had just toasted.
This sweet potato is soft and sweet. It warms your heart when you eat some in the cold winter.
Bai Luoluo ate two, as he just wanted to take the third, his housekeeper quietly said: “Wangye, Your Majesty will come after a while, you should not eat too much now.”
Bai Luoluo reluctantly withdrew his hands.
Mao Jiu did not have these concerns, he was growing up, who ate a lot daily, even if he eats three or four, it also does not affect his appetite.
Then Bai Luoluo was admiring to look at Mao Jiu eating .
Mao Jiu’s fingers were slender and the joints were clear, so he was also particularly good-looking as peeling sweet potato skin. If he lives in the modern times, he can be a hand model.
Bai Luoluo looked again at his own hands, which were a little more fleshy and whiter than Mao Jiu’s. But what’s a man got to be so white for? He’s got the perfect Tan skin.
Mao Jiu peeled the skin and took half with a bite. His lips were stained with a little foam, and he put out his tongue to lick it. Bai Luoluo’s heart beat faster as he saw this scene.
But he didn’t think much of it, just muttered to him to eat less, so he wouldn’t miss Dinner.
The housekeeper reminded Bai Luoluo impatiently, said even if Mao Jiu eats two, there is no problem for him to eat dinner.
The eye of Bai Luoluo was more plaintive.
The emperor was supposed to come for dinner today, and the food must be the best, but Bai Luoluo couldn’t be happy. Because every time he sees the emperor, he has to be careful, afraid of his identity as a fake has been exposed.
I have to say, the civil service is a tough job.
Outside the window, the snow was getting heavier and heavier. By the time the emperor arrived, it was completely dark.
Bai Luoluo saluted and went to the table with his emperor elder brother.
Maybe it’s been too cold lately, his emperor elder brother’s face wasn’t so good and he was still coughing lightly while eating.
Bai Luoluo asked him, while he shook his head and said he was infected with cold.
Although the dishes on the table were all home-cooked, they are very delicate and delicious. But neither he nor his emperor elder brother used the chopsticks. Bai Luoluo ate too many sweet potatoes, and his brother seemed to have a bad appetite.
As for having dinner, there must be warming up a pot of wine and having a drink.
Wine is medicinal wine, after warming, the spicy taste was completely suppressed, like a soft drink. Bai Luoluo was a bit greed to drink more, his cheeks floated a layer of blush.
His brother said: “I heard that a few months ago, the Du family’s siblings from the martial Arts League came to look for you?”
Bai Luoluo murmured.
The Emperor said: “You, really dare to provoke any people.”
Bai Luoluo gave a rather embarrassed smile.
Two people ate a while again, the emperor just seemed to said without intention: “Where is that guard looks exactly like you? I haven’t seen him.”
Bai Luoluo was very sensible to answer: “If the emperor elder brother wants to see him, I will call him to come.”
The emperor rubbed his glass and nodded, “Call him.”
The emperor gave an order, although the heart of Bai Luoluo was perturbed, he still called Mao Jiu over.
Mao Jiu went into the house and saluted, the emperor looked at him for a moment and lightly said: “Head up.”
Mao Jiu raised his head slowly, revealing his face, which was almost identical to that of Bai Luoluo. Had it not been for the age difference between him and Bai Luoluo, one might have wondered whether his birth had anything to do with the royal family.
“There really is such a likeness in the world.” The emperor took a sip of the wine and was interested, “It is interesting.”
Bai Luoluo smiled and said nothing.
The emperor said: “But I don’t care about you, if you are happy, keep in the side to play.” He looked coldly at Mao Jiu and told him to leave.
So Mao Jiu stood up and backed out.
The emperor’s expression seemed a little uneasy, so Bai Luoluo quickly said some good things. Finally, the emperor’s expression was a little looser. He said something to Bai Luoluo that he could not answer. The emperor said, “He looks like you so much, how can you do it?”
Bai Luoluo: “…” I also want to ask Yuan Feiyan.
The medicine wine’s aftereffect was quite heavy, Bai Luoluo was also could not drink too much, finally he was already out of his head.
The emperor is a good drinker, but he had been coughing, so he hadn’t been drinking much.
As the housekeeper helped the drunken Bai Luoluo back, the emperor asked, “How long has the guard been with him?”
The housekeeper lowered his head and whispered, “Almost half a year.”
The emperor nodded his head and said nothing.
The housekeeper did not know what the emperor meant, and could only stand still.
Until the emperor waved his hand and asked the housekeeper to help Bai Luoluo into the room.
Bai Luoluo had not been drunk for a long time. The wine made him feel hot and red as a boiled shrimp.
After the housekeeper had helped him to the bed, he was about to change his clothes for Bai Luoluo as Mao Jiu came out from the side of the house, “Let me do it.”
The housekeeper turned his head to look at Mao Jiu, who was holding a hot towel, and then glanced at the already sleeping Bai Luoluo on the bed. He hesitated for a little, but went out finally.
The door closed gently, Mao Jiu lowered his head to look at Bai Luoluo who seemed to have a sound sleep.
“Wangye.” Mao Jiu gently called him.
Of course, Bai Luoluo would not respond.
Mao Jiu pressed his finger to the lips of Bai Luoluo and said: “You exactly… regard me as what.”
Bai Luoluo was pressed to feel some uncomfortable, then aggrieved to murmur something.
Mao Jiu did not speak, he pressed his lips as usual, however, his next action was to lower his head to put his lips on the lips of Bai Luoluo.
Mouth to mouth, Mao Jiu tasted a strong smell of wine, but the smell did not let Mao Jiu feel disgust, but let him deepen the kiss.
Bai Luoluo was short of breath and started to push with his both hands.
Mao Jiu held down the hands of Bai Luoluo and continued to kiss seriously. His kiss skill was very raw, but this did not prevent him from continuing.
At the end of a kiss, both Bai Luoluo and Mao Jiu breathed a little less freely, Bai Luoluo muttered out two sentences, and Mao licked his lips.
“Originally is this kind of taste.” Mao Jiu used a hot towel to wipe away the cold sweat on Bai Luoluo’s forehead. His eyes were full of light, he said: “Wangye… is even sweeter than that roasted sweet potato.”
Bai Luoluo rarely drinks, so his reaction after drinking is especially strong.
When he opened his eyes the next day, he felt a splitting headache, and, whoops, the pain came back in waves for a while.
However, as soon as Bai Luoluo recovered, he was dumbfounded. He saw Mao Jiu was firmly embraced in his arms, although their clothes were intact, but such a close gesture still let Bai Luoluo sweat a bit.
He quickly asked the system: “Last night I did not do anything to Mao Jiu, right?”
The system said, “You touched his chest.”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
“And squeezed his waist.” the system said.
Bai Luoluo: “…”
The system heaved a sigh: “What is done is done, and what is not done is done.”
Bai Luoluo felt that his hand on Mao Jiu’s butt was about to burn.
The system said, “I didn’t know you were such civil servant.”
“… I am sorry for the wages the country has paid me.” he said, shedding tears of sadness.
The system said, “Oh, I lied.”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
The system said, “All you did was to touch his ass.”
“Are you all like this?” he almost died with anger.
The system said, “Yeah, if you don’t like me, you can change the system in the next world.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” the system of the last world also said so to him, the systems of the present are all unreasonable like this?
The man in his arms awoke while Bai Luoluo was still suffering from a headache.
Mao Jiu iwas much more calm than Bai Luoluo, and said Hello to him: “Wangye, Good Morning.”
Bai Luoluo smiled: “Morning, morning.”
Then Bai Luoluo lay on the bed again, looking at Mao Jiu to get dressed, and ready to go out to practice martial arts.
At the sight of Mao Jiu to push the door out, Bai Luoluo really could not resist, he asked: “Mao Jiu, last night, we…”
Mao Jiu blinked his eyes and seemed very confused: “What happened last night?”
“Last night… did anything… happen to us?”
“Wangye and I didn’t do anything.” he said hesitantly.
“Really? ” said Bai Luoluo.
Mao Jiu said: “Yes.”
Bai Luoluo was still hesitating, he swallowed and then asked in a low voice, “Then why are your lips broken?”
Mao Jiu reached out his hand to touch his broken lips and said lightly: “Just my own careless bite last night.”
Bai Luoluo: “Really?”
Mao jiu said gently: “Yes.” His eyes were so gentle so that Bai Luoluo had a kind of illusion that he is a human scum.
Then Mao Jiu went out, closing the door particularly gently.
“System, I really didn’t do anything to Mao Jiu, right?” Bai Luoluo sat up in bed with her hair unkempt and said in a hoarse voice.
The system said, “No.”
Bai Luoluo breathed a little sigh of relief.
However, the system did not tell Bai Luoluo that, from beginning to end, it was true that Bai Luoluo did nothing to Mao Jiu, whereas whether Mao Jiu did anything to Bai Luoluo is another matter.
But people watching the scene of bustle always afraid of the matter being not big enough.
At breakfast, Bai Luoluo’s eyes clouded, and his system sang in his head: “That night, you didn’t reject me, that night, you hurt me…”
Bai Luoluo: “… enough.”
The system said, “Don’t worry, nothing happened to you two.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” He originally thought he and Mao Jiu had nothing, but since this system repeated again and again, this made his heart more hang up.
The system consoled him, “Don’t be afraid, being gay is also in line with socialist values. We never discriminate against people of different sexual orientations.”
“But I like pretty girls.” said Bai Luoluo.
The system smiled gloomily and said: “How do you know yourself certainly like girls.”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
The system was just stay quiet for a while, and then asked him when he said he fell into love with hsi first lover.
Bai Luoluo knew this world’s system talked too much, if he ignores him, he is sure to make a non-stop, so he reluctantly replied: “Quite a long time ago, in the primary school… My girlfriend looked lovely, now I think of her…”
The system listened and kept quiet for a moment, then he said: “At least three years, the maximum is death penalty.”
Bai Luoluo: “…” Shit, he’s got to change the system in the next world.
After the meal, he sat glumly in the house, eating nuts and seeing Mao Jiu practice martial arts outside the house.
Recently, the weather had become more and more cold, but Mao Jiu had never missed a day to practice.
Bai Luoluo was afraid that he was frozen and let him rest for a month. Mao Jiu shook his head to refuse, and said practice makes perfect, and he has been accustomed to such life.
They had lived together for half a year, Bai Luoluo almost learned the living conditions from Mao Jiu.
That is basically not a human life. They work more than 18 hours a day, and there is no social insurance and house fund, lest overtime pay. They also employ child labors. The living environment is very worrying. And because the work of the shadow guard is more dangerous and the loss rate is particularly high, the original ten-year-old batch of guards had been almost changed.
Luckily, after Bai Luoluo took Mao Jiu here, he had almost cured the hidden injuries on Mao Jiu’s Body.
It was still snowing.
Bai Luoluo sat by the little stovepipe in a cloak of white Fox fur, and at his table, he kept a number of picture books and snacks to pass the time. A small hole was opened in the side window, through which he could see Mao Jiu practicing his martial arts in the courtyard if he turned his head.
This is a great way to live, and if it was possible, he would prefer the year to go by like this.
But apparently, as a Wangye, Yuan Feiyan was impossible to be so idle.
As the year drew to a close, one after another came to visit Bai Luoluo.
Some of them were received by the housekeeper, and some of them needed to be seen by Bai Luoluo himself, and in order to prevent any unnecessary trouble, Bai Luoluo let Mao Jiu put on a mask so that he would not be seen by those who wanted to spread bad words.
The busy days continued for half a month, seeing the year flavor was thicker, Bai Luoluo randomly looked for time to take Mao Jiu to go to the street around.
The trade in the period before Chinese New Year was probably the most prosperous.
The rich and the poor were more or less ready for the new year, after all, this was the most important day of the year.
The housekeeper was in charge of all the affairs of the house, and he had nothing to worry about. The trip was just a casual stroll, so he only took Mao Jiu with him.
During the last his half year, Mao Jiu grew up fast, whose juvenile face also began to gradually be more similar to Bai Luoluo’s.
The flagstone road was covered with thick snow, and the road was lined with hawkers.
Bai Luoluo looked around and were quite interested in the surrounding. He saw at the roadside there was someone selling sugar and conveniently asked Mao Jiu if he had eaten sugar before.
Mao Jiu shook his head a little.
“Then I’ll buy you one for you.” Bai Luoluo smiled.
The vendor’s craft was quite exquisite, the small sugar man he made came to life .
Bai Luoluo let Mao Jiu take off the mask, and then let the vendor make a sugar man according to Mao Jiu’s appearance.
The peddler saw Mao Jiu’s face and smiled, “This is your younger brother? You look like the same.”
Mao Jiu just wanted to open mouth to deny, then heard Bai Luoluo said alowly: “Yes, this is my younger brother.”
The peddler laughed and said, “How about making a couple?”
Bai Luoluo thought for a moment and said, “That’s all right.”
The peddler neatly made two perfect little sugar men and handed them to Bai Luoluo and Mao Jiu.
Bai Luoluo looked at the little sugar man in his hand and asked with interest, “How do I know which one is me and which one is he?”
The vendor smiled and said, “Look, this sugar man is taller, and your brother’s sugar man is shorter.”
Bai Luoluo heard this and felt satisfied to lick the sugar man.
Then he bought some small snacks for Mao Jiu, such as Bingtanghulu, fried pancake, which he did not refuse and held all in his hand.
Bai Luoluo saw him not eat and smiled: “Eat, you can’t hold more if you don’t eat them.”
Mao Jiu then carefully bite Bingtanghulu and the sweet sugar in the mouth melted, then tasted the sour and sweet hawthorn. Mao Jiu blinked his eyes, who seemed to feel the sour.
Bai Luoluo smiled calmly at him and asked: “Is it delicious?”
“Delicious.” he said. There was some sugar around his lips, and he put out his tongue to lick them into the mouth.
Bai Luoluo looked at Mao Jiu, suddenly said: “Mao Jiu, do you like this Bingtanghulu?”
He nodded his head, and then put another one in his mouth.
He was indeed a half-grown child, although at the beginning, he was careful to stay with Bai Luoluo, but for a long time, he also relaxed down.
Bai Luoluo again slowly said: “One day, people in the world can do whatever they want to do, and no one is the subordinate of anyone.”
Mao Jiu was stunned.
“Do you believe there will be a day?” said Bai Luoluo.
At this time the wind and snow began to get heavy, Mao Jiu saw his Wangye in a pure white cloak, holding an umbrella and smiling like flower looked at him. His eyes were like his own, shining with some confusing light. It took a long time for him to know what the light in Wangye’s eyes mean.
Bai Luoluo saw Mao Jiu not speak, he also didn’t ask, but only smiled to tell him to quickly eat the Bingtanghulu, which was about to be frozen into ice bar.
Then Mao Jiu swallowed them into the stomach one by one, even did not spit out the core.
After shopping for a long time, Bai Luoluo was cold, so he called Mao Jiu together to a nearby tea house to have some food and tea.
When Bai Luoluo and Mao Jiu entered the tea house, there was a storyteller patting the surprised wood, said “But the noble man could not bear to see his servant die with him, so he tried to drive him out of the mansion, who knows the servant has already been moved by the noble man’s heart. The execution day is coming.”
When Bai Luoluo heard what the storyteller had said, he thought to himself what kind of storybook it was, and then he heard the following words, the storyteller said, “It is a good thing that the noble man and the servant look alike. The servant did not want to see the death of his lover, so he took the way of sacrificing the plum tree to preserve the peach tree(which means to sacrifice himself for another person)…”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
Mao Jiu: “…”
The two looked at each other for a moment, each seeing doubt in the other’s eyes.
Bai Luoluo couldn’t resist and called the waiter.
As soon as the waiter saw what she was wearing, he knew that he must be an honored guest, and he asked him very nicely what was the matter.
“… what kind of script is this storyteller speaking of?”
The waiter laughed and said, “You’re not from around here, are you?”
“Yes, I am not from here” said Bai Luoluo. Though Yuan Feiyan was good at spending money on men and women, he had a habit of not eating grass near his nest and rarely walked around the city, so there were not many people who knew him there.
“This is the latest edition,” said the waiter, “about the love affair of a noble man and a servant who looks exactly the same. Very touching!”
“… but didn’t I hear the storyteller say that both the nobleman and the servant were men?”
The waiter said with a smile, “You don’t know this, but the nobleman has always been obsessed with both men and women, even now, a man falls in love with another man is very popular.”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
Seeing that he did not speak, the waiter simply said, “How about this? I’ll go to buy you a copy of this story. You can read it by yourself?”
Bai Luoluo slowly spit out a word “OK”.
The waiter was about to turn around and walk away, but suddenly stopped and turned his head to ask: “You want the ordinary version or…”
How many versions are there of this? “What’s the difference between the regular version and the other ones?” He said.
The waiter smiled, “Of course there are some differences,” he said, “everyone can see the ordinary version, but the content is less.”
Bai Luoluo understood in an instant and said: “Then I want the edition with richest contents.”
The waiter nodded and went out.
Bai Luoluo put out his hand to knock on the table. He was still thinking of the script.
The waiter went away quickly and returned fast. He handed the book he had bought at a nearby bookstore to him with smile.
Bai Luoluo took over the book and gave some silvers to him: “Keep the change, go down.”
The waiter nodded and laughed, “Take your time.” he said, “I’ve read it many times.”
Bai Luoluo lowered the head to look at this book. He had a bad feeling about this.
There were three big characters on the cover of the book: “Men in Love”.
Drawing a deep breath, Bai Luoluo opened the first page with a shaking hand and saw the first line of writing on it: He had met him on a cool autumn night.
Bai Luoluo: “…”It felt like a third-rate romance novel.
He didn’t look at it closely, but he glanced at the plot, then looked more and more angry. When he read the pornographic contents in the book, he finally couldn’t help throwing the book away.
“Their bodies were intertwined, and their breathing grew louder. He kissed his lips and stroked his silky skin, and said, ‘I want you.’ “
Bai Luoluo: “…” To be honest, writing a pornographic BL book about the imperial family would really not be caught?
