Chapter 128: You can eat me
The sweet potatoes dug up from the ground were very big and they were very hot and fragrant after they were baked. Peeling back the burnt skin, the red inside was revealed. It was so delicious that Xiao Ru almost swallowed her own tongue.
“Young miss, your baked sweet potatoes are too delicious. It is the most delicious thing this servant has ever eaten!”
Xiao Ru ate two sweet potatoes in a single breathe. She held her bulging stomach but still didn’t feel like she was finished yet as she began to lick her fingers.
Chen Ning did not let her eat anymore as she laughed and said, “Sweet potatoes are good, but you can’t eat too many. If you eat too many, your stomach will ache, you will get diarrhea, and you’ll burp a lot. That’s right, you will also constantly fart.”
After she finished speaking, Xiao Ru who was reaching for another sweet potato drew her hand back in a frightened manner. She stuck out her tongue and said, “Then this servant won’t eat anymore. This servant doesn’t want to end up like his highness and the second miss.”
The two of them looked at each other and then burst into laughter.
Through the night, the master and servant slept very soundly.
The bed was very small and could only accommodate one person. Chen Ning slept on the bed and Xiao Ru placed some grass down, sleeping on the floor.
While they were sleeping, the two wooden windows suddenly opened with a “squeak” and a cold wind blew in.
Chen Ning and Xiao Ru woke up at same time.
“It’s no problem, the window was just blown open by the wind. Young miss, you go back to sleep, this servant will go close it.”
Xiao Ru rubbed her eyes and yawned as she went to close the window.
Before she could reach the window, a face as white as paper appeared in the window. With disheveled hair like a ghost, it stuck out a blood red tongue at her. Ghostly noises came from its mouth and hands with ten fingers bent like chicken claws appeared in front of her.
“Ghost, there’s a ghost……”
Xiao Ru’s hair stood up in fright. A foot gently fell to the ground and she almost fainted.
The ghost suddenly jumped in through the window and it kept bouncing up and down.
“Oh god, it’s a limping ghost……”
Xiao Ru was so scared that she couldn’t even scream. She kept trembling as she tightly closed her eyes while muttering, “Don’t eat me, don’t eat me, my meat doesn’t taste good. If you want to eat something, go eat the second miss…..”
The ghost hopped past her and moved over to Chen Ning lying on the bed.
Xiao Ru was completely frightened, but she still mustered up the courage to kick out at the ghost. Then she shouted, “You can eat me, but don’t touch my young miss!”
The ghost suddenly jumped over to the bed and revealed a fiendish smile at Chen Ning.
“Young miss, quickly run away!” Xiao Ru screamed.
Chen Ning sat but, but not only did she not run, she looked over at the ghost and reached out to grab the ghost’s tongue.
“Hey, isn’t your tongue a little too fake? I could see through it with a single glance. Did you really think that putting a red cloth on your tongue would be good enough? Also where did you get that hair from? Fake, too fake! Also your clothes! Ze, ze, ze, next time you want to pretend to be a ghost, I’ll teach you how!”
She spoke while pulling off the ghost’s red tongue, messy hair, and also the ghost’s clothes.
The ghost was so scared that his hands grabbed onto his pants while he jumped back. He then shouted, “My aunt, don’t pull, don’t pull anymore.”
He almost tripped on his own ghost robe and awkwardly stumbled backwards.
Chen Ning giggled as she got off the bed and threw the red tongue and hair that she pulled off to the side. She walked in front of the ghost and grabbed him by the ear.
“Xiao Bai, hello. We haven’t seen each other in a few days and you dress up as a ghost to scare elder sister? You scared my little maid half to death. Tell me, how should I punish you?”
The ghost stared at her with wide eyes and discouragingly said, “Are you even a girl! Are you really not scared of seeing a ghost in the middle of the night?”
