王爺你好賤 39 – Disaster movie right in front

39


Ning Huang was borne by the Queen.
So the Queen was very happy she came back this time, bringing her out of Palace to look for the Emperor and play.
The moment Ning Huang left, the entire East Palace erupted in a festive cheer.
In order to celebrate the temporary absence of the prodigal daughter, the Crown Prince organized a large banquet in the Palace, inviting his gang of friends to chill[1].
It was very lively with chatters flying around.
Zhu WuXin found these nobles who hold one person at one hand, then hug another person at the other hand quite unpleasant.
Hastily finishing her meal, she stood up to return to her room.
The night was as cold as water.
She laid at the edge of the window and raised up her head to look at the moon.
Whenever the surrounding quiets down, she will always see a flash of an elegant, otherworldly figure in front of her eyes.
That indifferent and quick-witted man in white clothes, with clear shoulder line and refined temperament.
His voice was low and pleasant to listen to, just like a sound of nature.
Don’t know if she will have the chance to see him again.
She really wanted to see how he looked like.
Will he be like shadow assassin?
Or like a disaster movie right in front?
Due to Zhu WuXin’s bedroom was situated quite far from the main Hall of the East Palace, it was always very quiet here.
As long as she does not speak, the entire room would fell into a silence so quiet you can hear the sound of burning candles.
This is what it will usually be, with the exception of one additional voice.
No matter how much Zhu WuXin tried to interrupt it or tried thinking of other things, the moment it quieted down, she can always hear a distant faint laughter.
At first, she thought it was her auditory hallucination.
But later on, after she asked left and right from the newly entered Palace maidservants then she found out that some people indeed heard the same laughter deep in the middle of the night.
There were a lot of emotions mixed inside the laughter, but people can’t feel the slightest joy from it.
Sometimes, people even heard screaming roar mixed in it.
Letting those who heard it scared witless.
Eerily haunting.
But due to reasons unbeknownst to her, Zhu WuXin would feel familiarity whenever she heard this sound.
As if she heard the same sound somewhere before.
She felt so familiar it scared her.
This feeling keep her thinking how scary was it to be sleeping alone in the room.
The good thing was the laughter doesn’t rang out every night, or she will probably die with her eyes opened wide due to her can’t fall asleep caused by insomnia.
It was already said, that curiosity killed the cat.
How many period dramas have taught us that in the Palace, it’s best not to ask about any secrets.
However, Zhu WuXin still want to ‘sing an opposite tune'[2].
After struggling back and forth internally, she finally decided to check out who is actually disturbing people dead in the night.
Opening the window, she lightly stepped on the chair then like a wisp of smoke, ran out following the direction where the voice came from ———-
