Chapter 23: Bringing a Gift
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Xi Qiuyue scratched the back of his head, puzzled with Tang Doudou’s behavior.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Just as he was about to speak again, Tang Doudou had at some unknown time already stood up and was currently looking at that palanquin, her eyes emitting a wolf-like light. It alarmed Xi Qiuyue to the point he felt a shiver. He quickly grabbed her.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Hey, you better not do anything impulsive!” Xi Qiuyue advised.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
In the past he also thought of looting this palanquin, but afterwards, afterwards there was no afterwards…
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeing that Tang Doudou didn’t react, he could only ask again: “Do you know whose palanquin that is?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Bringing this up, for better or for worse, Tang Doudou reacted. She tilted her head and asked: “Whose is it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Her eyes didn’t move the slightest bit away from that palanquin. She was thinking, if she could just randomly break off a piece then she probably won’t have to worry about eating and drinking this entire lifetime, right?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Haha, if I tell you it’ll scare the wits out of you!” Xi Qiuyue glanced around before leaning close to Tang Doudou’s ear to whisper: “Baili Yu*.”

百里煜 – Bai(hundred) Li(inside/ancient measure of length approximately 500 meters) Yu(brilliant/glorious)

Baili Yu? Which cultivation path’s immortal is he?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou gaped then closed her mouth. Doesn’t matter which cultivation path’s immortal he is, just based on this palanquin alone. Very nice, Baili Yu, you’ve already succeeded in attracting this Alliance Head’s attention!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The two rows of young girls that were carrying Baili Yu soon landed on the ground with incomparable grace. They slightly curtsied towards everyone in the hall and spoke simultaneously: “Congratulations to Li gongzi for ascending to the Alliance Head’s position!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
They came to congratulate? Tang Doudou’s eyes lit up. Then, wouldn’t this mean there will be gifts to receive?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
A master with this much money, the gift he gives will definitely not lack in any way!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Didn’t think being an Alliance Head could even have benefits like this!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou patted away the hand Xi Qiuyue put on her shoulder and patted off the dust on her robe. She was just about to walk up to respond when her sleeve was grabbed by someone.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Don’t go over there.” A deep genial and familiar voice sounded. Tang Doudou turned around and saw Bai Feiyun had come to stand behind her at some unknown time. A helpless expression flashed past his face.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Don’t tell her that it was another one of Elder Yu’s conspiracies? Thinking of this, Tang Doudou looked towards Elder Yu, but unexpectedly discovered that Elder Yu seemed as if he was facing a huge enemy, his expression was completely tense.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeming to feel her gaze, Elder Yu turned his head to look over and also shook his head towards her.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
It’s really surprisingly strange!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
How come everyone beside the one that was just talking to her looked like they just ate a dead kid?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
That’s right, the one that was just talking to her… She suddenly turned around and almost knocked into Xi Qiuyue. Immediately following that, she saw a face filled with dust Xi Qiuyue grin at her.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The snow-white shining teeth scared her to the point she shuddered. She immediately increased the distance between her and Xi Qiuyue and went to stand with Bai Feiyun.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“What are you running for. Just now I fainted on purpose. Otherwise, you think with your bit of strength you’d actually be able to strike ben wang unconscious?” Xi Qiuyue delightedly grinned.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
This dear friend’s interests are really… exotic!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
But looking at the fact that it was he that helped her out first, then later he also helped explain to her the newcomer’s identity, she’ll let him off!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Once again moving over, she asked: “Baili Yu is seriously rich?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“The world’s richest man!” Xi Qiuyue replied assuredly.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Since it’s like this, then in the end should she go over, or not go over?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeing that it’s been a while yet this side still wasn’t responding, that maid who was playing the flute stepped out.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“In order to congratulate Li gongzi for ascending to the position of Alliance Head, Pavilion Master has specially prepared a gift for Li gongzi. Hope Li gongzi will kindly accept.” Although she was a maid, the way she spoke was calm and neither servile nor overbearing. Just based on this attitude, even an unmarried daughter of a noble house would not be able to compete!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Adding on the faintly discernible exquisite features behind the hazy gauze veil, it was seriously of splendid and magnificent houses. As if an immortal fairy descended to the mundane world, causing people to be unable to tear their eyes away.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Don’t even mention saying any words of rejection.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Looking at the exquisite small box in her hand, Tang Doudou couldn’t help but start guessing at it. What in the world is inside that?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Night Pearls? Too common!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Diamonds? Hmm, this era doesn’t have that!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Banknotes? Too straightforward, doesn’t go in line with his status!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
…….
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
In the end, what could it be? That heart of Tang Doudou’s was itching ah!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Li gongzi?” Seeing that she still hadn’t moved, that woman’s cherry lips delicately parted and called once again.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Huh?” Tang Doudou saw the blame in the beauty’s eyes and her heart panicked. Without thinking she opened her mouth and replied.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The woman slowly walked over, the fragrance from her body drifted over on the wind along with her body. In a moment she had already arrived in front of Tang Doudou: “My family’s Pavilion Master has said, no matter what, Li gongzi must put this away carefully! You must remember not to lose it again!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
As she spoke, she pulled Tang Doudou’s hand and placed that box on it, then helped her wrap her fingers around it before leisurely walking back.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Fishy, something’s fishy!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou lowered her eyes and looked at the box in her hand. What did those words mean?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
But before she could think much more about it, from that side the melody of the flute sounded again. The four maids lifted up the palanquin, petals fluttered without wind. From the looks of it, it seemed like they were actually about to leave.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Shoot, can’t let them leave just like this!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou pushed aside Bai Feiyun’s hand and ran over, waving the box in her hand as she shouted: “Hey! Person over there, you, wait!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
From a look it could be seen that this guy was not on good terms with them and yet for some unfathomable reason he’s gifting her a box. Now he actually wants to pat off his butt and just leave, leaving behind a pile of trouble that she’ll certainly have to end up dealing with!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Doudou will never allow this kind of thing to happen!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The girl blowing the flute glanced back and asked with a smile: “What other instructions does Li gongzi have?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“I …” Tang Doudou’s brain blanked out for a moment. Seeing the box in her hand, she immediately said: “You should take this back!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
In the end she even added an addition sentence: “Thank your family’s master for me! Just say that I appreciate his kind intentions, however we are still not familiar with each other. To give such a heavy gift, I really cannot accept it…”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The maid did not speak.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The palanquin stopped in the open space outside the hall. The petals swept up without wind seemed to also stand still. The bright white moonlight as if washing the palanquin spilled coolly onto the top of the palanquin, emitting a faint light.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Haaa(sigh), something that has been gifted out, how can it be taken back?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Just as Tang Doudou thought that the maid suddenly went mute a languid magnetic voice drifted out along with the slightly cool night breeze.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Not waiting for her to reflect on the aftertaste of this voice, that person spoke again: “If Alliance Head Li seriously does not want it, just throw it away.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
His tone was exceedingly light, as if he hadn’t quite woken up and it still carried a bit of haziness. It brushed people’s hearts like a feather, causing people’s hearts to itch, wishing they could squeeze into that palanquin to take a look and see what type of beauty was in there.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Mm, that’s right. Tang Doudou was positive that the person inside the palanquin was a remarkably beautiful man!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Otherwise he must be ugly to the point of explosion, to cover up so tightly…
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Throwing it away is rather too much of a pity, besides, it was so carefully prepared.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Knowing that it was carefully prepared, why don’t you want it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“It’s not that I don’t want it!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Then why?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Because…” Tang Doudou’s tongue flopped around in her mouth for half the day, not knowing what would be good to say.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Because you don’t dare, right?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
The last words were provoking, its meanings deep.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Hearing this, Tang Doudou was also very depressed. It was indeed true that she didn’t dare to take this, she doesn’t have that ability ah!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeing Tang Doudou did not say a word, Baili Yu lightly laughed: “Haaa, looks like this gift cannot be sent out today.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
He changed the subject: “Has Alliance Head Li truly made up his mind?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou was eager for him to take back this gift and hastily nodded: “I’ve thought it over, made up my mind!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Ben zuo feels that Alliance Head Li should take a good look at what’s inside first. Making a decision after isn’t too late.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou smacked her lips, replying firmly: “No need!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Take a look!” Baili Yu persuaded.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Not looking!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Are you not curious?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Curious ah! Practically dying of curiosity!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou’s complexion was odd. In regards to what was inside the box, she was comparably more curious as to what exactly this Baili Yu wanted.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Since Alliance Head Li is curious, why not take a look? This thing is actually fairly important to Alliance Head Li. This one* has already used quite a bit of effort in order to obtain it. After Alliance Head Li has taken a look, if you still do not want to accept it then there is no other choice but to have someone throw it away. This one cannot afford to take this item.”

Humble way of referring to oneself. 在下 translates literally to “beneath this” so like “this one beneath (you)”.

He repeated incited Tang Doudou, causing everyone to direct their gazes simultaneously towards the box in Tang Doudou’s hand. What in the world is in it?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Under the clear color of the moonlight, the exquisite box and that palanquin were made of the same sort of material and in Tang Doudou’s hand it almost overflowed with misty white light.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
What plaything is this? To be fitted so beautifully.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou rubbed her chin, her watery pupils slightly restrained. She clearly knew that the Baili Yu in front of her had an ulterior motive and the hidden intent was obvious. Yet she still felt perfectly willing to fall into this trap.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Curiosity killed the cat, it’s probably used to talk about people like Tang Doudou.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“After I look can I refuse it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Take a look then talk.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
This fox is way to cunning! Although she still hasn’t seen the person, from the few exchanges of dialogue Tang Doudou already had gotten to know them through experience.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Her eyes fell again onto the box. Should she look or not?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Subconsciously she looked towards Bai Feiyun.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Look!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Bai Feiyun’s lips slightly opened and closed. Looking at the shape of those lips, he actually wanted her to open and look!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou became perturbed.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
This Xiao Bai(pretty boy) bro, he’s already scammed her several times……
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Forget it, look then let’s just look!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
When has she, Tang Doudou, ever been so timid? It’s all because of this group of scheming prostitutes, causing her to feel as if there was an enemy soldier hidden behind each tree and bush. Causing people to analyze everything in order to not be careless and lose this small life!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Her gaze shifted to the box in her hands again. Earlier, she didn’t look at it carefully. Now that she looked at it, that big sapphire on the top of the box was blindingly bright.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Putting her hand on the box, with a slight application of force she heard a faint click and the box opened.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
What could be inside?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Everyone’s eyes were concentrated on Tang Doudou’s hand, causing her to be under great Chinese white pear* ah!

Here’s a pic:

This is really cute. “under great Chinese white pear” is a humorous version of “under great pressure” because “great pressure” and “Chinese white pear” sounds the same.

No! Tang Doudou hesitated again, her hand pressed down. What if inside was something that was disadvantageous to her and was seen by others? What will she do then?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Immediately she turned her back towards everyone and opened the box rapid as the speed of light and glanced inside.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
WTF! What toy is this!?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Tang Doudou was very disappointed. Such a valuable box but all it contained was something like this?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Causing so many people to get involved, is this boring or what?
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Seeing the thing in the box, Tang Doudou’s interests completely faded as she weakly closed the box.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Alliance Head Li is dissatisfied?” Baili Yu asked.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Of course she’s not satisfied! You’re so rich, how could you send such a poverty-stricken thing? Poverty-shaken is enough, but he just had to incite her to accept it after looking. Isn’t this making her seem narrow-minded?

B/c if she doesn’t accept, it’ll seem like she’s looking down on the gift since it’s doesn’t seem to be worth much.

Now she has already looked at the thing, to accept it or not is a question again.
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Hm? Alliance Head Li?”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“Ahem, satisfied! How could I not be satisfied?!”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
“It’s good if you’re satisfied.” Baili Yu’s voice suddenly became spirited. Tossing away the languidness it became exceptionally clear and cold: “Since Alliance Head LI is satisfied with it, then put it away properly and don’t lose it again! It’s also not early in the day anymore, this one will not disturb everyone any longer as you discuss major events. This one will take his leave now.”
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
That’s not right, not right! Tang Doudou tapped her chin. Baili Yu and that maid constantly brought up the two words ‘don’t lose’, it was definitely not a coincidence!
Please do not host elsewhere but Volare and Yumeabyss
Could it be this is something she lost? She just got off the boat*, what could she lose……..

Figurative language for she just came to this place.

A divine light flashed through the sea in her mind, the Alliance Head Command Tablet!

I really wonder what profession Tang Doudou had before she transmigrated. An actor? A detective?
