EWNV Chapter 88: Journey To The North (Part 2)

02:09

Ji Li You came over and handed her a cup of tea, leaning on the railings beside her he said, "You are doing better than me, my first time on the sea was a lot worse."

Ye Zhen Zhen accepted the cup of tea, after finishing she handed back the empty cup to him.

Born in a noble a household, brought up as a well-cultured lady, this was perhaps the first time she felt so stingy to use a little "thank you".

Ji Li You put the cup aside, then handed her a peeled orange.

The perfect combination of sweet and sour, Ye Zhen Zhen gradually devoured it whole, feeling a lot better after eating it.

Feeling she had replenished some of her strength, she stood up, patting the dust off her back, she unceremoniously left for her room.

Ji Li You simply watched her leave, not saying a word.

After she left, he stood up and started gazing at the calm waves with a smile on his face.

Ye Zhen Zhen spent the rest of her day in the dark room, allowing no daylight in, her line of thought swirling around the apparent differences between the riverboat and ship.

Having experienced traveling on a riverboat she felt although it made her a bit dizzy but it wasn't to the point where she couldn't eat without feeling uncomfortable or vomiting it out. But the sea truly is different, ah! As soon as she ate something her body started urging her to vomit it out. Making her stomach empty again.

Although she had no appetite, she knew she had to keep eating in order to stay alive. She had no intentions to kick the bucket, especially after being clear that Ji Wujiu is alive.

Thinking till here, Ye Zhen Zhen forced herself to eat something... and vomited it out. She continued being entangled in this loop for a while.

The only thing which made her feel a bit better were the oranges that Ji Li You sent to her room every day.

She started from eating one orange a day to eight a day, this figure was still rising, Ji Li You felt alarmed at her eating behavior, worried she might harm her body due to this, finally limited her supply to eight oranges a day.

Ye Zhen Zhen wholeheartedly believes the only reason she was able to survive was because of oranges.

After a long time, the whole journey which Ye Zhen Zhen spent vomiting, finally came to an end.

Ye Zhen Zhen was being helped off the boat as she had no energy left to even walk.

Ji Li You helped her sit in the carriage. After which he disguised himself and Ye Zhen Zhen.

Ye Zhen Zhen was dressed as a humble old woman, while Ji Li You had fake long beard attached to his face.

That said, Ye Zhen Zhen was clear they were not making their way to the capital.

Ji Wujiu is still alive, looking over the throne, so even if Ji Wujiu expresses any intentions to welcome Ji Li You back as his cousin, Li You will surely not be rash to rush there.

Sure enough, they made all the way to the north before finally stopping at Fangshan.

Ye Zhen Zhen slept in a daze, even after waking up she felt a bit dizzy, probably the repercussions of sea sickness. Forcing herself to eat some breakfast, she was unable to digest it and vomited it out. Finally having no choice, she ate some oranges to sate her hunger.

Ji Li You then took her to climb a mountain, where he commanded his people to bury something.

Ye Zhen Zhen sarcastically smiled, saying, "Are you preparing to bury yourself here, ah! You are still not dead, yet you are already preparing for the future, huh?"

Ji Li You pointed at a bag not too far away, "That's dynamite."

Ye Zhen Zhen's face instantly changes color.

Ji Li You laughed, "As long as he comes, he can forget about leaving." pausing for a while he added, "Both the country, as well as you, I must have."

How to stop him from coming here?... how? Ye Zhen Zhen's mind was thinking of countless ways to stop Ji Wujiu from approaching this place.

Ji Li You suddenly asked, "You know I'm curious, when did you first figure out he is still alive?"

Ye Zhen Zhen rolled her eyes, "From the moment you were not able to lift it up."

(TL Note: There's a little word play here, 舉 means 'to act' and 'to lift'. Basically, she is hinting at his impotency while on surface saying 'From the moment you did not act'.)

Ji Li You's face sank.

She asked again, "Are you able to lift it up now? Ah! looking at the face you are making, I guess not." She deliberately said it out aloud, so that the people working around could clearly hear it.

Some of them are people working under him, they know of his matters, seeing him encounter this situation they cannot help but sigh: ai! no wonder the royal family's number of descendants have been so low. Originally their family suffers from a genetic disease....

"Good, good! You wait for a while, I will make you cry for mercy to me soon.", Ji Li You said with a cold smile on his face.

Ye Zhen Zhen was not afraid of his threats. What she was worried about right now was Ji Wujiu's predicament... the dynamites Ji Li You has planted.

He has just returned from surviving a deadly flood. He cannot die here.

Ji Wujiu you said I was your lucky star, I hope this time I can truly bring luck on your side.

Ye Zhen Zhen silently prayed to the gods for his safety, she started from praying to the deities of east and ended up praying to the western deities as well, not even sparing virgin mary.
