Chapter 162 Cold Serve Rabbit (e)
Translated by Gumihou

After Wen Heng left, Shiyu looked down at her armful of fluffy pandas. There was that overwhelming urge to rub her face against these adorable cuties again, however, Shiyu managed to refrain herself this time. Instead, she set them down. The three panda brothers turned around to stare up at her with grateful dewy eyes.  Kyaa…
Despite her odd behaviour, the pandas understood that she was their saviour and that sticking to her would be their best chance for survival. At the very least, she wasn’t half as scary as the previous human.
“Er… you should change back to your other form,” otherwise, if that noisy maid saw these talking pandas, who knows what kind of fuss she will make?
The pandas wordlessly transformed into three lovely youths.
“What’s your Cultivation Stage?” Shiyu was more interested in this now that the fluffy, adorable, cute-
“We have just achieved Divine Transformation Stage, only eldest brother reached Level 1,” said one of them.
“What are your names?”
“Old One, Old Two, Old Three,”
Shiyu, “… what’s your surname?”
“What’s a surname?”
“Alright, how about I change your names. From the oldest to the youngest, Bei Bei, Jing Jing, and Huan Huan, If you have 2 other younger siblings, they will be known as Ying Ying and Ni Ni,” Shiyu said briskly. Naming them according to the famous song Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni, or Beijing Welcomes You . Nice, auspicious and easy to remember.
The three pandas trembled and agreed to the name change. Grandpa is right, ah! There are many powerful masters hidden among the human races. When they first arrived, they became complacent after seeing only pitifully weak humans around them. They felt that no matter how strong the humans might be, they would at least be able to escape their clutches as Divine Transformation Beasts.
But that person just now, don’t say fight or struggle, ah. They could hardly even move under his gaze! What’s even scarier is that they could not discern his strength at all. Just look at the way he casually opened up a void and tossed them through, ah!
Not even their Grandpa could do that!
Because that human was too overwhelmingly powerful, their senses had been confounded to the point where they dare not resist this obviously weaker female human before them.  S
he’s their protective charm against that ultimate power, ah!!!
“So you’re all Spiritual Beasts? Where do you come from?”
“We came through the crack when thunder splits the sky,” said one. “We saw the crack early,”  “About three or four months ago,”  “But we missed it,”  “So we waited for the next one,”  “And came through that!”  Shiyu folded her arms, “I see. So, how did Wen Heng catch you?”
All three Panda Boys shivered.
It turned out that the Panda Boys had been attracted by the enticing smells wafting from the Imperial Capital and stayed there to eat and eat. However, because they ate too much and sold everything on their person for food they eventually committed the crime of eating and running. They soon ran out of places to hide and were finally caught by Wen Heng.
To be fair, they never did hurt any human. The worst thing they did was accumulate horrible debts after feasting at expensive restaurants. Which was eye-catching enough to attract Wen Heng’s terrible attention.
Shiyu listened to their tales of woe and could not decide whether to laugh or cry. These three little Panda Boys really subvert her understanding of what a Spiritual Beast is, ah! It is said that there are over 10,000 races in the world, but surely even these three could be considered strange?
While she was enjoying their stories of misadventure and woe, the maid from earlier came back with a tray of breakfast.
When she saw the three young men, the maid’s first thought was that she had accidentally entered the wrong courtyard. But no, she had not lost her way. It really was Eldest Young Miss’s courtyard, ahh! She glared at Shiyu, “This is our Young Miss’s courtyard, how could you just invite strangers here!”
“Ah, they aren’t strangers. These are my distant cousins. It’s rare for them to visit. So, I ask  Miss Green to be a bit accommodating,” said Shiyu.
“Who’s Miss Green!” the girl shrieked.
“You, ah. You’re always dressed in green, aren’t you?”
“My name is Yun Duo. Also, what did you mean by that remark just now? Is our Young Miss coming back?” asked the maid as she arranged the food on the table.
“Of course, ah!” Shiyu grabbed a steamed bun and bit into it. Hmm, Steamed Bun Stuffed with Radish is certainly delicious. She enjoyed the bun with some warm Soy Milk.
There’s also Fried Dough Sticks which she tore into smaller pieces before dipping them into the Soy Milk before stuffing her mouth. Hmm, the crispness of the Dough Sticks coupled with the sweetness of Soy Milk is nice and fragrant. It’s a synergy of taste, ah!
The maid,  Yun Duo held her words back, hoping to hear more about her mistress. However, it soon became clear that this Shiyu girl had no intention of saying anything else. This person was still a guest of her mistress, therefore she could only grit her teeth and leave.
Whether she was here to fume at her or not, Shiyu’s enjoyment did decline. Hmm, just leave so that I can enjoy my food better, she thought. However, she soon felt something was not right. The hairs on the back of her neck stood up.  Someone’s watching!
Shiyu quickly whipped her head around and saw… three pairs of pitiful eyes staring at her breakfast. One of the youths was actually salivating.
“Want some?” she asked.
All three smacked their lips and nodded.
“Hmm, this is only enough for me. I’ll take you out for a good breakfast later.” Beasts tended to eat a lot if San Pang was anything to go by. She had a feeling that Miss Green would not be too happy about bringing 12 more portions of breakfast.
“Yes! Yes! Yes!” all three Panda Boys cheered. If a member of the human race took them to a restaurant, they would not get into trouble.
After her breakfast, Shiyu led the Panda Beasts out of the estate and entered one of the busiest teahouses.
After all, when you’re in a foreign land, all you have to do is follow the crowd and you’ll find good food.
The four entered and chose a seat with a good view on the second floor. With a smile, Shiyu generously ordered one of everything from a very surprised waiter.
When the food arrived, Shiyu picked up a bun and took a bite. However, she did not touch her chopsticks. On the other hand, the three brothers’ chopsticks fell like rain and food began to disappear at a fascinating pace.
Shiyu ignored the hungry pandas and deliberately scanned the streets. Sure enough, covert eyes were studying her and more than a few people were sneaking around. As expected, a target had been painted on her back.
Vaguely, she wondered where Xiao Shu was right now.
As she was pondering over this, a group of people came up to the second floor and settled down at a table next to her.
“Congratulations to Lingfei! I heard that only extraordinary talents could enter the Imperial College of the Eastern Empire. To think that the Vice Principle actually wrote you a personal recommendation, you’ll be accepted for sure! I heard that the College has quite a few Divine Transformation Powerhouse alumni. If you start rubbing shoulders with those elders, make sure not to forget us, ah!”
Shiyu was seated with her back to them, a teacup in hand.
She heard the scrape of a chair, followed by Shen Lingfei’s voice, “I thank you all for your kind words. My goal is to quickly improve my strength. As to whether I’d get along with the Divine Transformation Elders, it depends on them too.”
“Lingfei, ah, your talent is so great. Who knows, maybe the daughters of one of those elders will fall in love with you at first sight. Just like that Xiao Shu! You haven’t done anything yet, but she’s already offered herself up on a plate garnished with all kinds of precious herbs. How nice to be you, ah,” someone said enviously.
At the mention of Xiao Shu, Shen Lingfei’s expression darkened.
“Don’t talk about her. She makes me sick!”
[Gumihou: Your face makes me sick!]

 Added Details for Comedic Effect: Might as well make their fluffiness a running joke.
 Beijing Welcomes You = Bei Jing Huan Ying Ni
Technically, I can go with Bei Bei, Jing Jing, Wel Wel, Come Come, You You, but that sounded kind of stupid so, let’s stick with the Chinese pinyin. Here’s a link for the Bei Jing Welcomes You song.
 Added Details for Comedic Effect: The original only mention them being frightened in general and unable to resist. Gumihou added the protective charm thing to solidify future character development.
 Changed Passive to Dialogue: For dramatic effect.
 Changed Details for Direct Comedic Effect: Original nickname is Ah Lu, Lu meaning green. It’s a recurring joke, so might as well use Miss Green instead of Ah Lu to avoid having to explain the joke.
 USMiC: It’s all the maid, the maid, even after Yun Duo had introduced herself and granted a nickname. Gumihou will use her name from now on.
 Added Details for Comedic Effect: More hungry panda related funnies.
