The Empress's Gigolo Chapter 375
When setting off the next day, Ren Baqian finally managed to carry Lin Qiaole out from the room
Ren Baqian wondered whether he was imagining it, but there seemed to be a whiff of a sour smell from Lin Qiaole's body.
Seeing the state of her clothes, Ren Baqian was compelled to ask, "Don't you need to bathe and wash your clothes?"
Lin Qiaole let out a long yawn, went to a wellhead by the side to get a bucket of water, and poured it over her head.
Then, she spun like a spinning top at a very high speed, which was hard for Ren Baqian to see and seemed illusory.
A large amount of water droplets were propelled from her body and splashed on Ren Baqian's head.
The principle was similar to the spin-dry cycle of a dryer.
By rotating like a spinning top to dry off from a bucket of water, it combined bathing and washing laundry in one step. This was indeed a remarkable feat!
Ren Baqian pondered for a long time and concluded that spinning her body like a dog shaking its fur after getting wet was disgusting.
Two minutes later, Lin Qiaole stopped and sat down on the floor in a daze. She didn't know who and where she was or what she was doing
"Please wait for me! I am a bit dizzy!"
Ren Baqian was incredulous. Why didn't he consider Lin Qiaole a goofy person previously?
He went forward to touch her clothes and found them to be quite dry.
They were still half-wet, but they should finish drying in one hour given Dayao's weather condition.
"Whom did you learn this move from?" Ren Baqian asked curiously. To be able to execute such a weird skill required some talents.
"Does this require learning? I knew it since I was born! Aren't I awesome?" Lin Qiaole said proudly.
"It is a natural talent! Awesome!" Ren Baqian gave her the thumbs up
Shaking fur was nothing to be proud of. Ren Baqian felt that this rascal was more like a dog.
Others were catgirls or half-human, she was 80 percent b*tch.
He felt like swearing as he listened to her.
"You said that you are not an aboriginal yesterday. In that case, what ethnicity are you?" Ren Baqian finally found the opportunity to ask.
"I don't know!" Lin Qiaole simply replied.
"You don't know?" Ren Baqian raised his pitch an octave higher.
"Nobody told me!" Lin Qiaole said with grievance.
"Didn't Librarian Lin tell you? How do you know you are not an aboriginal?" Ren Baqian was confused.
"I was picked up by my grandmother. She said that I'm not an aboriginal, but she doesn't know my race. I took 40 years to only grow this big and I am still not a grown up!" Lin Qiaole pointed at her chest in despair.
It looked like she knew she was flat chested.
However, was she really 40 years old? Ren Baqian was amazed as he really couldn't tell that she was 40 years old. Furthermore, she didn't look like an adult yet? What was her ethnicity and life span?
Although he knew there were kirins in this world and heard about flood dragons, this was the first time he had seen such a half-human.
Ren Baqian thought about bringing her back to Earth for research purposes.
"So what do you know?"
"In any case, you will automatically know some things." Lin Qiaole couldn't tell why.
"Did you sleep every day in order to become a Spirit Wheel expert? Can you increase your strength by sleeping?" Ren Baqian finally asked the question he had been harboring for a long time.
"Yeah! I am still growing and sleeping makes me grow. The strength comes naturally as a result," Lin Qiaole said this with some grievance.
However, Ren Baqian felt even more grievance.
He felt it was unfair that he had to tire himself out through cultivation, yet others just needed to sleep to achieve this.
As a matter of fact, life was never once fair.
He was similar to a child from the countrysidehe had to struggle for a lifetime and would not necessarily achieve more than someone who was just born well off.
It was really disheartening!
"You sleep every day, bu, have you sparred with anybody? Just having strength and not knowing how to use it is like being a child with a sledgehammer. I will introduce someone to you who you can train with daily once we are back home. There is no need to hold back because she is sturdy and can take punches." Ren Baqian immediately found a suitable training partner for Lin Qiaole
Flat chested girl versus lolita. What a pair.
"I have no time. I'm sleepy!" Lin Qiaole yawned. She was already sleepy after pouring a bucket of water over herself.
"I know how to fight and will learn while I sleep," Lin Qiaole continued explaining.
"How can that be?" Ren Baqian widened his eyes at her ability to "hack" the cultivation system just by sleeping. He was taught and tortured by a ten year old little lolita and was still unable to beat her.
By sleeping, one can increase one's strength and skills?
["Hack": The author is referring to how game players cheat in their games.]
"Shi Hu!" Ren Baqian yelled.
"Sir, I am coming!" a voice answered from outside, then Shi Hu rushed in.
"Can you adjust your strength to the level of an Earth Wheel expert?" Ren Baqian was determined to find out how invincible Lin Qiaole was.
"No way, I am sleepy!" Lin Qiaole was almost asleep.
"One bag of White Rabbit Creamy Candies!"
"Sir?" Shi Hu was stunned and didn't understand the situation.
"I won't strike too hard." Lin Qiaole sprang up from the floor. Two bags of White Rabbit Creamy Candy was sufficient to wake her up.
"She will adjust her strength to the level of an Earth Wheel expert and spar with you." Ren Baqian retreated a few steps to observe Lin Qiaole with the utmost concentration.
"Come on!" Shi Hu rushed at Lin Qiaole with a raised fist.
Lin Qiaole lowered her body, cut close to his body in the blink of an eye, dodged a blow from Shi Hu, twisted her body into a strange posture, and clawed at his face.
Ren Baqian saw Lin Qiaole instantly leave some bloody claw marks on Shi Hu's face.
"Foul! Is this a move at the Earth Wheel level?" Ren Baqian asked sternly.
"It should be!" Lin Qiaole said defensively.
"Is that the case?" Ren Baqian asked Shi Hu because he couldn't see clearly. He wondered how the difference could be so great since Shi Hu's wasn't weak at all.
In that brief moment of sparring, Shi Hu could only manage to deliver three punches and one kick, but had totally missed.
"Your subordinate does not know either!" Shi Hu was at a loss.
"Tune down your level to that of an expert at the intermediate stage of the Earth Wheel level!" Ren Baqian exhorted. He wanted to see them sparring at the same level, not to see Lin Qiaole rapidly defeat Shi Hu.
"I will lower it a little more" Lin Qiaole said hesitantly. She wasn't sure whether she had adjusted her strength to the level of an Earth Wheel expert.
"Start!" Ren Baqian said again.
Lin Qiaole scurried directly at Shi Hu at a much slower speed that was visible to Shi Hu. She launched a punch and lowered her elbow. If the opponent was intending to come near, his body would go under her fist and be perfect for her to smash down.
At the same time, she raised her leg and was ready to knee the opponent if he came near.
Ren Baqian recognize this move as one that came from [Boxing of Death]. In fact, there were assorted variations to this move, it wasn't complicated, and it was very suitable for use on the battlefield.
However, Lin Qiaole caught ahold of Shi Hu's fist with both hands, deflected its direction toward his upper body, and didn't forget to claw at his face again.
After deflecting Shi Hu's fist, her leg traced a circular path as it aimed at his back and hit his vertebra.
Shi Hu broke out into a cold sweat, and his body stiffened.
The pain of being hit there almost killed him, and for an instant, he wasn't even able to move his little finger.
Lin Qiaole reached the ground, rebounded, and turned her body in one move. She directly squatted on his back, wrapped both hands around his neck, and seemed as if she would break his neck if force was applied.
"Stop!" Ren Baqian hurriedly intercepted.
Lin Qiaole was just demonstrating, and by the time Ren Baqian called out, she had already landed on a wall several meters away after jumping off of Shi Hu's back with both legs.
Ren Baqian gasped at the sight of Lin Qiaole's deadly moves.
Anyone who wanted to fight with her had to be prepared for disfigurement.
Seeing the blood flowing from the five claw marks on both sides of Shi Hu's face, Ren Baqian deemed it as not much of an impact because Shi Hu was already ugly. It would be a different matter if Ren Baqian suffered two claw marks as he depended on his face to make a living and would have fought with his life on the line to prevent it.
In any case, he had confirmed that the fighting skills of Lin Qiaole weren't weak, so it was no wonder that the empress made her his bodyguard.
Although he had not yet seen her fight with another Spirit Wheel expert, she had adjusted down to the Earth Wheel level and easily defeated Shi Hu, a feat which wasn't achievable by the average person.
Ren Baqian knew that even if he were to progress to Earth Wheel level, he was certainly no match for these guards who trained everyday.
This Lin Qiaole was really unbelievably great.
Gaining strength and skill through sleeping was similar to players who pay to win in video games.
Ren Baqian thought of the times when he used to play video games until he was dead tired, but was then defeated by all sorts of crushing powers from the players who pay to win.
Just thinking about it made him envious and jealous.
