C34 Reclaim Clam
This was an indoor swimming pool that took up a lot of space. Lee Qiangdi was amazed.
Gently opening the outer door and walking in, he saw that the indoor swimming pool was at least a few hundred square meters. Lee Qiangdi immediately felt angry: the aristocrats are so extravagant, he could only live in a dormitory of a few dozen square meters in college, and it was squeezed together with several other people.
However, perhaps it was because he had been used to the luxurious aristocrats for a while, Lee Qiangdi just resented them for a moment and then stopped paying attention to them.
He walked over and looked deeply at the bottom of the pool.
Perhaps it was because it felt its master's presence that the underwater clam started to tremble slightly. Then, the tightly shut clam slowly opened up, as if it was anxious to protect its master for thousands of years.
Feeling the anxiety and joy from the other party, Lee Qiangdi couldn't help but chuckle.
He sent a soothing telepathic thought over to smooth out the panic and worry that the clams had felt after he was taken away.
He raised his head and looked around.
No one. Very good.
With a beautiful leap, the youth transformed into a beautiful fish tail and streaked across the water with a gorgeous luster. He swam towards the bottom of the lake, and as he approached the clam, he gently stroked the snow-white shell of the clam.
The complex clothes that were like flowing clouds lightly stuck to his body without any discomfort. Lee Qiangdi had tested that his clothes were different from ordinary human clothes. No one knew what material he was made of, but not only did it not restrict his movements in the water, it made his body even more graceful and graceful.
This robe seemed impervious to water and fire. Once he left the water and went ashore, his clothes would still be dry and refreshing. It was elegant and elegant, without the slightest hint of having been submerged in water before.
Lee Qiangdi couldn't find the reason out of curiosity so he stopped paying attention. In any case, he was the one who benefited from the clothes.
Raising his head to look at the sparkling ripples on the surface of the water, the youth hesitated for a moment.
Lifting his hand to take off the crystal necklace, Lee Qiangdi looked at the two crystal beads in the middle and the missing piece in the middle. Gritting his teeth, he lightly pressed his hand on the clamoring clam.
Then, he saw two or three clams, which were as big as him, suddenly shrink. After a burst of fluorescent light, what appeared in the center of the youth's slender, snow-white palm was a beautiful, crystal clear shell that was quietly lying there.
The size was just right.
Afraid that it would take too long for someone to come in, Lee Qiangdi gently inserted the clam into his necklace and put it back on his neck. Then, he stopped swimming.
Climbing out of the swimming pool with his arms behind his back, the youth shook his long hair that was floating in the water and stood up from the shore.
As soon as the silver fish tail left the water, it turned into two legs. Lee Qiangdi turned around and looked at the empty pond before turning around and leaving.
Outside, at a fork in the road, he saw, after a few minutes, a panicked expression on the face of the man who had been waiting there. He raised his head from time to time to look in the direction he had come from.
When he saw the youth come out, the man immediately let out a breath of relief and came over with a silly smile.
"Young Master Lian Hua, you came out!"
"Yes." "Oh right, take me to another place to take a look."
The youth laughed, his knee-length black hair fluttering in the breeze. He looked as beautiful as a fairy that had fallen into the mortal world, causing the large man opposite him to be in a daze.
So beautiful …
"Oh right, I haven't asked you for your name yet. What's your name?" Along the way, he was too concentrated on seeing the scenery to recognize the way, but he actually forgot about this matter. No wonder he felt that there was something out of place, he just didn't know what to shout when he wanted to call out to someone.
Lee Qiangdi was in a good mood as he kept his stuff. He couldn't help but start chatting with the honest and simple man beside him.
"I, I'm a slave. I don't have a name, no, but before I entered the Ducal Mansion, everyone called me Ah Dan." The big bloke seemed to be very nervous. He looked at the teenager's helpless expression. His rough and dark face seemed to want to express something, but he did not know what to say.
"Slaves?" Lee Qiangdi was stunned, he couldn't help but stop.
There were actually slaves in this era?
He raised his head and looked at the man before him, who was almost two heads taller than him. If he wasn't brought back by Hades, would he have been reduced to a slave without any freedom?
He had never felt such a strong sense of what aristocratic rule really meant.
"Young Master Lian Hua, what happened to you?" Did he say something wrong, or was it because of his identity …
The bright look in his eyes slowly dimmed.
"Ah, it's nothing. I just thought of something and was a bit conflicted in my heart. Oh right, Ah Fan, where's the one in front of us? " Lee Qiangdi didn't notice the man's expression. He shook his head and put down the thoughts that suddenly rose up in his mind. He turned around and looked at the luscious flowers in front of him and asked Ah Dan who was behind him.
"That's the Imperial Court, Old Duke's favorite place. After Old Duke left, very few people came here. Lord Duke normally does not like these elegant and poetic things, so other than the gardener taking care of it from time to time, the whole Imperial Court became empty. "
"The Imperial Courtyard?"
In the afternoon, it was almost time for dinner. Only then did Lee Qiangdi slowly come back from outside.
"Hey, Hades, you're back." The young man was stunned. He raised his head and saw a man wearing a tall and handsome military uniform striding over. This made Lee Qiangdi slightly envious.
Military uniform, how handsome it looked! Especially when it was worn on that nearly two meter tall, strong and tall body, it looked even more resolute and murderous.
Lowering his head and looking at his small body, Lee Qiangdi let out a sigh.
It seemed like he couldn't withstand the cold aura of the military uniform. Even if he wore it, he wouldn't look like a soldier.
"Yes, I'm back. Did you have a good time at home in the afternoon? " Hades had obviously just come back. Before he changed his clothes, he was already anxiously looking for the youth's shadow. Seeing the youth walk in, the man's cold face softened. He lowered his head and stroked the youth's long hair as he spoke in a low voice.
"That's right. Oh yeah, I went to the Imperial Courtyard, you won't blame me, will you? " Lee Qiangdi asked carefully.
After all, that was Hades's father's favorite place. Hades didn't even go there often. Could it be that he had accidentally touched his taboo?
"You like the Imperial Court?" The man was taken aback for a moment, but then he felt relieved. "That's true. The scenery of the Imperial Courtyard is not bad. If you like it, how about I have someone expand the pavilion in the lake?"
"No, no. I just happened to pass by, so I went in to take a look. You don't need to build a pavilion in the lake for me. " Lee Qiangdi immediately stopped when he heard the meaning behind the man's words.
Black lines, he had only casually said them.
It was the imperial garden that Hades's father liked. How could it be able to change the entire structure just because of a single sentence?
"Qiangdi?" The man looked at the youth, not understanding why he had refused.
Mermaid, didn't he always like water? Although the scenery inside the imperial garden was not bad, it was a garden with many flowers growing on it. There was no lake inside.
"In any case, it is better to keep it as it is. "I'm so hungry. Can we eat now?"
"Alright then." Seeing that the young man didn't want to change the topic, Hades helplessly sighed and led the young man to his seat as he called for people to prepare dinner.
It was night.
The door to the study room was pushed open and Old Steward Ulise's figure walked in.
"What is it?" The man didn't look up from his chair.
"The servant reported that the clams that had been resting quietly at the bottom of the swimming pool have disappeared!" While saying this, Old Steward looked at the young and handsome Duke.
"What?" When did this happen? " The man stopped what he was doing and looked at Old Steward with a frown.
"Who was at the pool this afternoon?"
"According to the guard on guard, Young Master Lian Hua will be there in the afternoon." It seemed that Young Master Lian Hua's appearance was after Lord Duke bought the clam? Could it be that there was a connection? Lord Duke seemed to care a little about the clam, otherwise he wouldn't have put it in the swimming pool and even let people watch.
Although Ulise was confused about this, he knew what to say and what not to say.
"Is that so?" The man pondered.
"You go down, I have my own thoughts on this matter."
"Yes." Old Steward left respectfully without making any sound, not forgetting to gently close the door to the study room.
