Chapter 229: Waste Him

The tendons on her hands and feet have all been cut off, they couldn’t move anymore.

Madam Lu has completely become a cripple.

Master Lu straightens his eyes, glaring at Muyan who had mangled his wife, his whole body and his mouth are shaking uncontrollably.

He points at Muyan and screams, “My Lu family didn’t have any disagreements or hatred against you before. Even if our eyes had failed to recognize Mount Tai and offended you, you didn’t have… didn’t have to be this ruthless, did you?”

Muyan laughs grimly, her quiet eyes are devoid of any warmth as they look at him, “No disagreements or hatred in the past? Then Master Lu, can you please tell me, for what reason would the Lu and Shen families make this kind of marriage contract?”

This question has made several people there suddenly tremble.

Lu Yongli’s eyes reveal the color of pure fear.

He hears Muyan continue: “Or should I ask, what was your agreement with Su Yuexiang? Did she agree to draw up a marriage contract with the Lu family? Who was initially supposed to marry Lu Chengcai? Why did it change into Shen Xiaoru afterwards? If you can give me the answers these questions one by one, and if I’m satisfied with those answers, then I will spare the people of the Lu family who are present at this moment. What do you think?”

Lu Yongli looks at Su Yuexiang in alarm, and again at Shen Jinglin. His voice is trembling, “No… no, I don’t know what you’re talking about…”

Before he could finish what he’s saying, he hears a metallic sound.

Lu Yongli could only feel a sharp pain on his hands and feet, and he falls down to his knees with a thud.

He has yet to produce a shrill anguished wailing, when he hears Muyan’s frosty voice by his ears, “If you still don’t want to speak the truth, then next, you will be exactly the same as your wife – a cripple.”

“I’ll speak! I’ll speak! I’ll tell you everything! You mustn’t cut off my tendons!” Lu Yongli couldn’t take it anymore, and he begs for mercy again and again, his face dripping with tears and snot.

“A year ago, Su Yuexiang looked for me all of a sudden, saying that she would like to marry off a daughter of the Shen family to my son, Lu Chengcai, on the condition that I would do something for her.”

“Do what?”

Lu Yongli sends Shen Jinglin a terrified glance once again, and just as he’s about to speak,

Su Yuexiang screeches, “Lu-fellow, you mustn’t talk rubbish, when did I look for you…”

Twang–!

With a sound of the zither, a hole suddenly splits open in Su Yuexiang’s flapping mouth, blood flies about in all directions.

Her whole body rolls down to the floor in pain, continuously howling.

Muyan icily says: “It’s still not your turn to talk right now, don’t rush.”

Turning to Lu Yongli, “Continue!”

Lu Yongli’s intestines are seriously ruined now, and he also hates Su Yuexiang to his bones.

If it weren’t for this woman, how could his Lu family fall to this end?

“Su Yuexiang, she… she wanted me to find someone in Shen Jinglin’s travels, and waste him!”

Upon hearing this, Shen Jinglin and his father snap their eyes wide open, incredulously looking over.

Only Muyan is loftily unmoved, continuing to say: “What did you do?”

Lu Yongli shudders, and proceeds with resignation: “Shen Jinglin’s cultivation was pretty good, and he also had a lot of companions by his side. My people were unable to succeed in the beginning.”

Shen Jinglin’s original cultivation has already reached the peak of Profound Stage. Except for Lu Yongli and his father, no one in the Lu family was able match against Shen Jinglin without any assistance.

“Until at one point, who knows who he has provoked, but he got beaten and severely wounded, veins were half-destroyed, and dying. My… my people seized the opportunity… seized the opportunity to completely break his leg bone, even destroying his Qi Sea, and made him a complete waste.”

Chapter 228: Lu Family is Completely Destroyed

Shen Jinglin and his father have shocked expressions. They dumbly look at Muyan, then at Xiao Bao by her side.

Lu Yongli has finally sensed the pressure that seeped out of Muyan’s sound blades, and his expression becomes heavy. There’s even a tinge of fear within his eyes.

That’s because he clearly felt that the pressure from Muyan’s sound blades is actually stronger than his.

Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru look like they’ve seen a ghost. They retreat for several steps out of shock and horror.

Shen Xiaoru is even faintly regretting it in her mind.

She had brought this comet of disaster back. Didn’t she just lift up a stone to smash her own feet?

It’s just a pity that everything is too late now.

Muyan shows a faint smile: “What’s the hurry? Didn’t I just say it? The show hasn’t started yet!”

Just as she finished her words,

There’s suddenly the sound of footsteps from the corridor, heading towards them.

While everyone is distracted, there’s already a dozen or so people walking inside in a line. They come before Muyan and Xiao Bao.

The group bow and kneel in unison, “Seeing Miss, seeing the little Master!”

Entering along with them is a rich smell of blood from their bodies.

As these people lift up their heads, Shen Xiaoru gets to take a look at the leader’s face, and she instantly cries out in fear.

The person heading them is, unexpectedly, unexpectedly Muyan’s servant, Yan Haotian!

And the person that has burst in is the one in charge of Ink Camp.

Chang Yu takes a step forward and says: “Reporting to Miss, about a hundred people from the Lu family – excluding the weak women and children, those who sold themselves into slavery, and those that had escaped by themselves – all of them had been killed and beheaded. This is the head of the Lu family’s esteemed grandfather.”

Saying that, he tosses with his hand.

A bundled-up cloth fall on the ground. As the cloth comes undone, it reveals someone’s bloody head inside.

When Lu Yongli sees that head, he immediately produces a heart-rending, lung-splitting roar, “Father–!!”

The head belongs to the Lu family’s esteemed grandfather.

“You killed my father, I will fight you! Aargh–!!”

Lu Yongli frantically charges towards Muyan.

Before he can take two steps however, his chest gets pressed against a sword.

Yan Haotian blocks in front of Muyan and Xiao Bao, and the tip of his sword is right against Lu Yongli’s chest.

Internal Force belonging to an Earth Stage peak rushes to the tip of the sword, it seems like it can shatter his heart at any moment.

Lu Yongli stops in his footsteps, aghast. And the burst of his fury to avenge his father just now-

At this moment, it has been completely replaced by a fear of death.

It’s also at this moment that he finally comes to be aware of just what is going on.

More than a hundred guards from Lu family are killed?

All of them were killed by this group?!

Even his father who was at the peak of Earth Stage had been beheaded?

Lu Family is completely destroyed!

In horror, Lu Yongli turns towards Muyan, his body begins to tremble.

Just who has he offended?

Muyan takes a look around everyone in the room, and sees that each and every one of them has a deathly white complexion, like they’ve seen a ghost. A leisurely smile couldn’t help but curl up on her lips.

“Why aren’t you saying anything? The show has just begun – wouldn’t it be such a pity if no one is saying their lines?”

Saying that, her gaze shifts to Madam Lu, “Just a moment ago, weren’t you saying that you want to cut off the tendons of my hands and feet, then have me consummate the marriage with your son?”

“No no!!” Madam Lu is so frightened that her fat folds are trembling, she waves her hand and shakes her head repeatedly, staggering along and trying to escape.

But just as she takes a step to run away,

There’s immediately a sound of the zither.

The blade splits in the air and abruptly streaks over Madam Lu’s four limbs.

“Aaaah–!!” the skies resonate with the sound of a blood-curdling scream, sounding like that of a dying pig.

Madam Lu falls heavily on the floor, three of her teeth breaking, and her nose becoming crooked at an angle.

She cries and wails in terror, she wants to use her hand to cover her own blood-filled mouth,

However, she finds that she’s completely unable to move her own hands and feet.

Chapter 227: Gra-Gran… Grandfather

If this really explodes,

Su Yuexiang would indeed receive a serious injury, but Shen father would also be like a lamp with it’s oil burned out, and die.

Just as a thousand pounds are hanging by a thread, a sudden thrum of a zither echoes inside the room.

And just as Shen father wanted to deliver that palm strike, before he could even attempt to do it – a very small, fair and delicate hand captures his own.

At the same time, a young woman’s gentle and euphonious voice accompanies the sound of the zither that is permeating inside the room, “Isn’t this a wedding day? Why is everyone venting their anger so much? Why don’t we sit down, so everyone could watch a good show together.”

“Xiao Bao, please have your grandfather and uncle take their seats.”

Shen Yichen dazedly lowers his head, and is overwhelmed with shock as he meets an exquisite little face.

It’s a pink jade-carving, a little child of about four of five years.

However, when he gathered his life’s Internal Force, wanting to deliver a blow-

It was tempered down and made to return back into his Qi Sea, with only a light grasp from this little child.

This… what’s going on with this?

Xiao Bao has a wooden expression as he looks at him, an ice-cold but childish voice speaks out: “Grandfather, niangqin asked you to sit down.”

Gra-gra-gran… grandfather?!!

This little child, more beautiful than the Golden Boy by the gods’ side*, called him Grandfather?!!

The Shen patriarch is struck dumb.

It’s to the extent that he forgets to resist or ask questions, letting Xiao Bao lead him to unsteadily walk back to the bed, and sit down there.

Xiao Bao’s eyes are clear and luminous like sapphires, and they turn to look at Shen Jinglin.

Without waiting for Xiao Bao to open his mouth, Shen Jinglin promptly says: “Alright, alright. Uncle will sit down.”

Xiao Bao sees that grandfather and uncle have taken their seats, so he takes his small hands back.

Then he returns to Muyan’s side like a little grown-up, pulling closely to her.

Muyan is already lazily sitting by the short table since who-knows-when, and has placed a zither on top of it. Unadorned jade-white fingers softly pluck on the strings, making a sweet sound.

From the beginning until now, her appearance is like she’s leisurely watching a play. On her face, there’s isn’t even the slightest bit of dread and terror of someone who’s about to be married to a fool.

On the contrary, there is mockery and ridicule in her eyes.

It’s only as Xiao Bao leans in close to her, that she reveals a tender smile. She strokes his head to say that he’s doing very well.

Looking at this kind of attitude from her, Shen Xiaoru is inexplicably flustered.

In her mind, she can’t help but recall that time in the dining restaurant.

She thought that she could properly humiliate Muyan, but who would’ve imagined that she would be forced by the latter to crawl out at a public place with lots of people.

“Master Lu, what are you still dawdling for?!!” Shen Xiaoru suddenly yells at Lu Yongli, “Don’t you all want this woman to be your daughter-in-law? Tie her up now and carry her back, send her to your son’s bridal chamber at once! If he misses the opportunity to marry this woman, your foolish son certainly won’t be able to take in such a good wife anymore!”

Madam Lu fiercely glares at Shen Xiaoru, “If you dare to vilify my son again, I will tear up your mouth.”

It’s just that she could see her son obsessively staring at Muyan, drooling.

Nevertheless, she speaks to Master Lu: “But this girl is pretty good, really a long night with many dreams*. I think it would be better to immediately bring her back for a ceremony, and get them properly married.”

  • *cough*, when the situation is prolonged, it could have many problems.

 

Master Lu narrows his eyes and contemplates for a moment, then he waves a hand.

“Tie this woman up for me!”

Hearing the order, the Lu family servants instantly swarm around.

But before they could approach,

Muyan’s hands that have been resting over the zither, suddenly flutters on its strings.

In a split second, dozens of notes turn into sword blades, lightning fast as they shoot towards the Lu servants.

These dozen or so people don’t have the time to lift up their swords.

There’s some spluttering sounds from their chests, blood flies about in all directions, then they fall straight down.

The whole audience goes deathly still.


*Golden boy… it’s that boy here:

(I usually see them in calendars and whatnot)

The Enchantress of Medicine, with the Heaven Defying Child, and the Black Belly Father

Chapter 226: The Truth

Seeing Shen Yichen suddenly wake up, Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru are practically frightened out of their minds.

Nevertheless, Su Yuexiang manages to react first, faking a laugh and going closer as she says: “Master, you finally woke up. You have been mentally confused this past year, making this servant* worried about…”

  • deprecatory self-reference for women

Before her voice could fall, Shen Yicheng suddenly raises his hand and ruthlessly throws a slap to her face.

“Poisonous woman, stop shedding crocodile tears in front of me. I know very well, just what you’ve done this past year! You and that fellow surnamed Zhou were at my bedside plotting to kill me, and destroy my son’s life. Do you think I wouldn’t know?”

Su Yuexiang staggers from the hit.

She’s still sluggishly coming back to her senses when she hears Shen Yicheng’s words. She immediately turns pale and begins to shiver from head to foot.

“Master, you, what are you talking about? This servant is unable to make sense of your words.”

“Unable to make sense?!!” the Shen patriarch’s eyes are red, and like a roaring lion, he’s itching to rush towards Su Yuexiang and tear her into pieces, “You took advantage of me when I was injured and unconscious, put poison in my medicine, making me go insane, making me go into a state that is neither a man nor a ghost. Now that things have come to this, you still want to cover up the truth?”

“Wench, my ultimate regret in life is marrying a poisonous woman such as you! I couldn’t wait to skin you alive!”

Father Shen bellows. He’s unable to bear it any longer and he madly rushes towards Su Yuexiang.

Su Yuexiang has been stifled under the Shen father’s momentum for a relatively long time.

Abruptly realizing that her plot has has been exposed, she could feel a rumbling in her brain and she entirely forgets to dodge.

However, Shen Xiaoru snorts and pulls Su Yuexiang away from the Shen patriarch’s attack.

Then she says in contempt: “Ma, what are you doing being all afraid of this half-dead bastard? After lying in bed for a year, do you think that Shen Yicheng would still be his former self? Look at him wobbling and teetering, I’m afraid that he wouldn’t be able to stand even one move from Uncle Lu. Isn’t that right, Uncle Lu?”

Hearing Shen Xiaoru’s praise, Master Lu immediately bursts into laughter.

He sends a taunting look towards Shen Yicheng, “Well said, do you think that you’re still that famous Shen Yicheng of Tianyuan? Humph, today, your daughter will be taken by my Lu family!”

“If you have a clear view of the circumstances, obediently do as you’re told, then afterwards, the Shen family and my Lu family will become relatives by marriage. You would also be able to enjoy a comfortable old age.”

“If you dare to resist, then I will kill you now!”

When Su Yuexiang hears that, she slowly comes back to herself from being frightened of Shen Yicheng.

She looks at his current appearance.

The black hair is now streaked with white.

The skin on his face is all wrinkled.

He’s been lying down for just a year, but he seems to have aged a decade.

Furthermore, the dreadful pressure of an Earth Stage expert is now dwindling to nothingness from his body.

Su Yuexiang seems to have finally realized something at this moment, and she gives a hearty laughter, “Shen Yicheng, you half-dead old coot, you’re getting what you deserve!”

“Those years, how have I worked like an ox, worked like a horse to serve you; but what about you?”

“Your heart only has Zeng Xiuying, that slut who has already turned into dust! You even treat a foster daughter better than your own child!”

“You’re cursing me as a poisonous woman? I’m telling you, you brought all of this on yourself! Today, not only do I want the death of your Shen family’s father and son, I also want you both to witness with your own eyes, how the adoptive daughter that you love so dearly, that you spoil and pamper so much, be covered in cuts in bruises when she’s defiled by a fool. Hahahaha!”

As Su Yuexiang speaks her piece, her elegant face becomes entirely distorted.

Becoming just like a sinister devil.

“I’ll kill you!! Wench, I’ll beat you up and kill you!” Shen Yicheng couldn’t keep listening to her malicious words anymore. He gathers the remaining Internal Force in his body, and ruthlessly lashes out towards Su Yuexiang.

Chapter 225: Wake Up

With a cold ‘humph’, he ruthlessly slaps the red wood table by his side.

That sturdy table unexpectedly gets smashed and reduced into pieces.

The powerful pressure that belongs to an Earth Stage expert is released, making everyone inside the room get quiet out of fear.

Especially Shen Jinglin – his complexion is deathly pale, his five organs are boiling, and he’s practically about to cough up blood.

Just at this moment however, a pair of tiny hands squeeze on his fingers.

Shen Jinglin feels an inexplicable warm current pouring into his body, and the pain of his five viscera and six bowels being crushed, all of it fades away and disappears at that moment.

He lowers his head in astonishment, only to be met with Xiao Bao’s frosty and exquisite little face.

For a short while, he looks on somewhat stupidly.

On the other hand, after Master Lou had slammed his palm down, he wraps himself in a terrible pressure and walks towards Shen Jinglin.

“Hehe, in Tianyuan City, there’s never been anything that my Lu family couldn’t do!”

“Don’t want to set about with the marriage today, turns out you actually don’t know what’s good for you. In that case, don’t blame me for being impolite!”

Saying that, he lifts up his hand and sends a palm strike towards Shen Jinglin’s skull.

At the same time, Madam Lu also shouts: “Come, tie that woman up for me, and have her change into a wedding attire. It’s naturally your good fortune that you can be married into my Lu family, but you still dare to resist.”

“If she’s not obedient, then you can sever the tendons on her hands and feet. Anyway, to take the seat as my Lu family’s daughter-in-law, it’s enough that she can bear children!”

“Bang–!”

A fierce impetus comes out from the bed, and in a flash, it hits the Lu family Master’s hand.

Preventing it from killing Shen Jinglin.

“I, Shen Yicheng, still haven’t died! If you want to move against my son and daughter, you still have to ask if I wouldn’t… cough, cough, cough…”

The unexpected emergence of the hoarse voice makes everyone inside the room jump up in shock.

Shen Jinglin stiffly turns around, and sees the Shen patriarch sitting up with a sober and clear expression in the his eyes. The rims of Shen Jinglin’s eyes redden, “Dad… dad, how are you?!”

He immediately throws himself by the bed, unable to stop his tears from gushing out. He tightly grabs on to the Shen father’s emaciated hand.

Shen Yicheng is also red-eyed, gripping the other’s hand in return. His voice choking with emotions: “Jinglin, father is… very sorry. I’m also so sorry, Yanyan… cough, cough…”

As he says that, he raises his head to look at Muyan, teary eyes filled with guilt and self-blame, “Yanyan, father has let you down, I haven’t taken good care of you. Even letting you receive that kind of humiliation and grievance…”

Thinking of the time before Yi-brother left, it can be said that Yi-brother was entrusting a task before he faces death’s door, yet Shen Yicheng had not fulfilled it.

Shen Yicheng feels so guilty and ashamed that he doesn’t have the courage to keep on living.

However, now isn’t the time for him to die.

Shen Yicheng doesn’t wait for Muyan to speak as his expression becomes resolute, he says through gritted teeth: “But Yanyan should rest assured, father had made a mistake once, I’ll never repeat that mistake again.”

“Today, even if I have to fight with this old life, I will absolutely not allow these people to have their way!”

Muyan watches as this emaciated old man unsteadily gets up from the bed, her expression is somewhat complicated.

Can she say that she doesn’t blame the Shen patriarch?

Of course she blames him.

She blames him for causing the death of mother Zeng Xiuying, blames him for being half-hearted and brought about Su Yuexiang, blames him for handing her over to Su Yuexiang, letting her suffer all kinds of misery, even… losing her innocence, and getting pregnant.

However, when all is said and done, this man had still raised her for more than ten years.

In her previous life, this person had tried so hard to look for for her when she disappeared, never giving up.

They’re clearly unrelated to one another in any way, but he truly treats her as his own daughter and loves her dearly.

Muyan closes her eyes, only to feel that the remaining resentment in her heart has been exhausted at this moment.

Chapter 224: Marriage Contract

There’s an unconcealed cheerfulness in the pair’s appearance.

Behind Su Yuexiang, there’s a man who’s wearing a red wedding attire. Due to his obese stature however, he resembles a red pig – Lu Chengcai.

There’s also Master Lu and Madam Lu who are wearing celebratory clothes as well.

As soon as she sees Muyan, Shen Xiaoru immediately laughs heartily and says: “Muyan-sister, congratulations, congratulations!”

Shen Jinglin sees this scene and gets a bad premonition in his heart.

Hearing Shen Xiaoru’s words, he becomes even more anxious: “What nonsense are you talking about?”

“Haha, today is the day of Muyan-sister’s wedding. As the older sister, it’s only natural to congratulate her.” Shen Xiaoru looks at the disgusting Lu Chengcai behind her, and turns to look at Muyan. The smile on her face is even more unspeakably carefree.

Lu Chengcai sees Muyan and his drool immediately pitter-patters down, his mouth persistently calling out: “Fairy-sister, take a wife back… take a wife back, and sleep!”

Madam Lu immediately laughs and appeases him, “Very well, Chengcai should rest assured. We will send you the fairy-sister to take her back as wife, right away. Let you two sleep together, and give mother a big and healthy grandson!”

At this point, how could Shen Jinglin still not understand what’s happening?

In a split second, he is shaking from head to foot in anger, “You all… shouldn’t go overboard! When did my Shen family agree to have a marriage with the Lu family? If you want to have my sister married off to a fool, you’re all dreaming!”

“Who said that there isn’t an agreement!” Madam Lu coldly snorts, “The marriage contract is right here!”

Shen Jinglin takes a look at the document.

He sees that it’s indeed a marriage contract between the Shen and Lu families, but it only indicates to have a Shen daughter, and it doesn’t say which one.

“This only mentions a daughter from the Shen family. If you want to send one over, why not marry off your own daughter? Yanyan is not surnamed Shen – how could you decide her marriage?”

Su Yuexiang faintly smiles in the face of Shen Jinglin’s questions, seemingly helpless as she replies: “There’s also nothing I can do about it! Who’s fault is it that Muyan has a national grace, divine fragrance – that the Lu family’s gongzi has taken a fancy to her, but not to our family’s Ru-er?”

“Jinglin, why don’t you look at the power of the Lu family in the Tianyuan City, and just what is the cultivation of the Lu family’s Master? Now that your father is in this state, more dead than alive, if we don’t marry off Muyan today, then our Shen family will certainly be done for!”

Shen Jinglin’s complexion is deathly white in anger, his eyes are practically spurting out fire.

He doesn’t have the slightest bit of cultivation now, but he doesn’t hesitate to guard in front of Muyan.

“You’re not allowed to touch Yanyan! Su Yuexiang, you pack of beasts. Five years ago, you have already ruined Yanyan once, and you actually still want to ruin her now. This time, even if I die, I will absolutely not allow you to destroy Yanyan’s marriage!”

Shen Xiaoru snorts, “You, who’s a cripple and a waste, still want to protect Muyan? Haha, don’t make me laugh to death. Jun Muyan, I advise you to obediently get married to the young master Lu, okay? Although young master Lu is somewhat foolish, but the Lu family is great and wealthy. In the future, I believe that you will definitely be able to eat delicious food and drink hard liquor every day. What else could you ask for?”

“You–! All of you–!! Get out! All of you should get out! My little sister won’t be married off, absolutely not!!”

Shen Jinglin seems to have gone mad as he goes to shove this group of people out of the room.

However, his strides are unsteady and before he could commence doing anything, he almost slips down to the floor.

If Xiao Bao hadn’t been by his side from the beginning, helping him at the crucial moment, he would have already fallen down and cut a sorry figure.

Master Lu seems to annoyed by such a farce.

Chapter 223: Invite to watch a good show

All of the house’s old servants and maids that she’s familiar with, why isn’t there any of them that remain?

Shen Jinglin dejectedly shakes his head, “I’m not clear on it either. After you went missing, father had been continuously looking for your whereabouts, investigating from the burnt remains over at the Su family, to every city and every country.”

“There had never been any news, that is until a year ago, when father suddenly said that he seems to have grasped some clues about your disappearance back then, and he’ll go and investigate.”

“But since then, father didn’t send any messages for several months. When he appeared once again, he’s bloodied and collapsed on a pool of blood. When he woke up again, he had already been in that state of madness.”

Muyan stares, and it takes her a good long while before she could speak: “Father… had been looking for me?”

“That’s right!” Shen Jinglin guiltily looks at Muyan, “Yanyan, father and I have always felt that we’ve let you down. Back then, we knew perfectly well that Su Yuexiang, that woman is not good to you… but we left you and we went out to practice through experience. When we returned, only then did we know that they have sent you to the Su family, while… while you’re still pregnant with a child…”

“At that time, father and I did all we could, wanting to get you back. But Su Yuexiang obstructed us in every possible way. I had no choice but to sneak into the Su family’s land to try and look for you. Who would have thought that you were already gone.”

“Ever since you’ve gone missing, father often turned to wine to forget his worries. He would always yell when he was drunk, that he’s sorry to his Yi-brother, sorry to his benefactor that he didn’t take good care of his only daughter.”

Shen Jinglin holds Muyan’s hand, his voice choking with emotions: “Yanyan, can you forgive dad? He isn’t a good father, but all these years, he had dearly regretted how he wasn’t able to take care of you at that time.”

Muyan has a complicated expression as she looks at the Shen father who’s unconscious on the bed, whispering after a long pause: “Muyan still hasn’t repaid father’s kindness of raising me, what’s there to forgive?”

“Brother, how did your leg get injured?”

Shen Jinglin stares blankly, then emotions slowly whirl in his eyes – embarrassment, humiliation, pain, and unwillingness. One after another, they billow over and over.

Finally, he closes his eyes and says with a soft gasp: “Yanyan, brother begs you not to ask. That person is someone we can’t provoke, we… really can’t afford to offend. So let it be, okay?”

Muyan still wants to say more, but she sees that Shen Jinglin is in pain and despair, that he’s about to fall apart.

In the end, she swallows back those words on her lips, “Well, brother, I’ll leave it be, so don’t be sad. But you can be at ease that I can definitely cure your leg.”

Shen Jinglin’s mind slowly calms down, “Does father really need seven days before he could wake up?”

Hearing that, Muyan chuckles, “Of course not. Father’s poison, even if it had entered his heart, he can wake up immediately as long as he’s detoxified the right way.”

“Then… when you said seven days?”

“Hehe, if I didn’t say that, then how could those two foxes show their tails?”

Saying so, she sends Shen Jinglin a mischievous wink, “Brother, after six days, little sister invites you to watch a good show, okay?”

===

Six days later.

When the Lu family’s marriage sedan arrives with a grandiose procession, Muyan and Shen Jinglin are attending to their father inside the room.

Hearing the rumbling sounds of shawms, gongs, drums from outside, Shen Jinglin asks in astonishment: “What’s going on?”

Muyan looks outside, with a smile that isn’t a smile: “Probably the Lu family’s procession to escort a bride.”

“Lu family’s bride escort??!” Shen Jinglin is alarmed and wide-eyed, “When did our Shen family decide to have a marriage with the Lu family?”

Without waiting for Muyan to answer, the door is suddenly pushed open a with a ‘bang’.

Shen Xiaoru comes in first, followed by Su Yuexiang.

Chapter 222: Silencing through Murder

Dr. Zhou very fiercely glares at Muyan, “What have you done to my daughter?”

Muyan has a smile that isn’t a smile: “Didn’t I say it? Make a patient with the exact same illness as my father! Why not let the patient be your daughter, Zhou Huanu?”

“Oh, that’s right. It can’t really be considered to be ‘exactly the same’, because I added some other ingredients in this poison. That is, this poison can be transmitted through blood, saliva and teeth… oh, it’s contagious! Not only that – I’ve also accelerated the speed in which it breaks out – by a hundred times. If you can’t detoxify it immediately, Dr. Zhou, you and your daughter will certainly die a violent death after two hours!”

Dr. Zhou shudders from head to foot, his complexion turns deathly pale, and his lips are trembling, “You… what are you saying? What poison? I… I didn’t know!”

“Really? So as it turns out, Dr. Zhou doesn’t know that my father had been poisoned?” Muyan shakes her head with a sigh, “That’s truly a great pity. If you can’t cure my father, Dr. Zhou, you definitely won’t be able to keep your and your precious daughter’s lives!”

Dr. Zhou’s eyes are wide open in shock, his face is filled with horror.

He whips his head to look at Su Yuexiang, “Antidote, give me and Nunu the antidote!”

Saying that, he unexpectedly rushes over and clings on Su Yuexiang’s leg.

Su Yuexiang’s complexion is ashen, “What nonsense are you talking about? How can I possibly have an antidote?”

“Didn’t you make me come to see Master Shen’s condition? Didn’t you say that as long as Shen Jinglin…”

Before Dr. Zhou could finish his words, there’s a sudden wet sound from behind him, the sound of a sword thrust into flesh.

Shen Xiaoru pulls out the sword that had pierced into Dr. Zhou’s body, and with a turn of the blade, she stabs it into Zhou Huanu’s heart.

“That damned thing, even dared to scheme against our Shen family, die!”

With that, Shen Xiaoru even sends a meaningful glance to Su Yuexiang.

Su Yuexiang immediately understands, so she nods again and again, “Exactly, I didn’t expect that this fellow surnamed Zhou is actually a fraudulent liar. Our family’s Jinglin was almost cheated by him. Fortunately, Muyan exposed them.”

Muyan has a mockery of a smile as she watches this pair of mother and daughter act out a good show.

The young woman’s smile is undoubtedly very beautiful, but Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru feel their bodies going cold, like there’s brambles and thorns on their backs.

Su Yuexiang forces a smile, “Muyan, I didn’t expect that after not seeing you for five years, your medical skills have become so good? By the way, since you can place the same poison on Zhou Huanu, does that mean that you can also cure your father’s illness?”

While she’s saying this, Su Yuexiang has an anxious and concerned look on the surface of her face.

But there is a flash of fear within the depths of her eyes.

If Shen Yicheng wakes up, then what she did…

Muyan sends a glance towards the Shen father on the ground, unhurriedly saying: “Curing him is possible, but the poison has already gone too deep inside father. Curing him would need at least seven days. During this time, father can only remain to be in a coma.”

Hearing that it would take seven days for the Shen patriarch to be cured, Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru distinctly reveal an expression that looks as if they are relieved from a burden.

Even more, Shen Xiaoru cracks out a sinister smile.

Seven days?

Humph, seven days later, Jun Muyan, you would already be carried into the Lu family, pressed under that fool, wantonly toyed with and insulted.

How could you still resuscitate this old-but-living bastard then?

Muyan watches the expressions on these two, and a chilling intent flickers within her eyes.

===

The Shen father is no longer in a state of madness, but in a coma. As a result, he is transferred out of the dark and damp dungeon, and into a wing.

Shen Jinglin sits by the window, the corners of his eyes red as he looks at his father’s sleeping appearance.

“Brother, now can you tell me, just why would father get poisoned? Also, what happened in the family these past few years?”

Chapter 221: The Same Illness

Muyan snorts, “Cannot absolutely guarantee to cure it, can’t even determine the illness, and you still want my brother to enter your family – do you think you could make a fool out of our Shen family?”

“You–!” Dr. Zhou’s complexion bursts into green then white, “Good good, since you don’t believe this old man, then this old man can’t treat him!!”

Dr. Zhou looks as if he’s about to leave.

But Zhou Huanu can only see Muyan destroying her marriage. Her ugly face suddenly twists, shrieking loudly as she pounces on Muyan, “Dare to snatch my man, watch me tear up that cheap mouth of yours!”

“Yanyan, look out!” Shen Jinglin fearfully cries out, desperately wanting to rush over and shield Muyan.

Before he can move however, Xiao Bao has already extended a fair and delicate finger.

He lightly taps the void towards Zhou Huanu.

In a split second, her entire body stiffens, unable to move a single step.

Muyan slowly walks towards the frightened Zhou Huanu’s side, she drawls: “In fact, it would be really easy to confirm if Dr. Zhou can or cannot do anything to treat my father’s illness. We just need to find a patient with the same illness, then test the treatment!”

“You, hurry and let my daughter go!” Dr. Zhou yells in panic and anger.

Hearing Muyan’s words, he expresses disdain, “What a joke. Why don’t you try and find a patient with the same illness, so this old man could take a look? As long as you find one, this old man will immediately treat him for you to see!”

Muyan’s mouth lifts up into a bright and beautiful smile, “Then, it’s settled.”

As soon as she says that, Muyan suddenly pries Zhou Huanu’s lower jaw and pours in a bottle of draught, then closes her jaws back together.

Dr. Zhou jumps in anger and dashes over with large strides, “Smelly girl, what do you want to do to my daughter!? If anything bad happens to my Nunu, I’ll have you pay with your life!”

Muyan pushes lightly, sending Zhou Huanu towards Dr. Zhou.

The latter is just about to examine his daughter’s condition, when Zhou Huanu’s sour face suddenly becomes distorted.

She abruptly opens her mouth like a beast of prey, and ferociously bites down on Dr. Zhou’s neck.

“Aaah–!!” Dr. Zhou cries out like a dying pig.

With great difficulty, he tries to pull away from Zhou Huanu.

Muyan grabs a chain, and with a wave, it goes towards Zhou Huanu and securely binds her.

Dr. Zhou covers his bloody neck and looks at his daughter.

He’s met with the sight of his own daughter madly and relentlessly struggling, trying and rush at people with her bloody mouth wide open like a sacrificial bowl, the flesh from his neck still hanging there.

Beast-like howls come out from her mouth every now and then.

These symptoms, are actually… really exactly the same with that of the Shen patriarch’s.

Shen Jinglin is struck dumb. He looks at Zhou Huanu, then looks at Muyan again, “Yanyan, you…”

Muyan turns her head and sends a light smile towards him, “Didn’t I tell you, brother? I have a little bit of medical skills.”

Being able to reproduce an exact copy of father’s illness, this… this is still what you call ‘a little bit of medical skills’?!

Like she could guess his thoughts, Muyan’s voice rings again, “That’s why, brother, you don’t need to worry so much. Whether it’s your leg, or father’s life, I will take it all back. Even if… I have to wrestle it out of the underworld’s grasp!”

Muyan’s voice is very soft, only Shen Jinglin and Xiao Bao could hear it.

But this light sound is like a sudden clap of thunder, a roar echoing in Shen Jinglin’s ears.

The part of his heart that had been deathly still, moves a little.

Will father… really get better? Can his leg really recover? He… really doesn’t need to enter the Zhou family anymore?

On the other hand, Su Yuexiang and her daughter, as well as Dr. Zhou- all of them are in shock at Zhou Huanu’s appearance. They are rendered speechless for a very long time.

Chapter 220: Silly Thing

“Naturally, this old man is the number one Godly Doctor in Tianyuan City. So long as the marriage sedan would lift you to enter the Zhou family, and you and my daughter consummate the marriage, this old man will immediately cure Master Shen’s illness for you.” there’s a coercive light in Dr. Zhou’s eyes. He speaks neither fast nor slow.

At the side, Zhou Huanu trembles in excitement even more, the way she looks at Shen Jinglin, is like how one would look at a fatty meat that’s about to enter one’s mouth.

Shen Jinglin slowly closes his eyes, there’s the loneliness of a heart that has turned into cold ash, “Very well, I…”

Before he could finish his words, the chamber’s door suddenly makes a creaking sound as it’s once again pushed in.

As the door opens, a woman’s silvery sweet-sounding voice subsequently comes through.

“Big brother, I already knew that you were hiding something from me, but I really didn’t expect that it would be such a silly thing.”

Hearing that voice, and seeing her silhouette enter, Shen Jinglin’s eyes snaps wide open, “Yanyan!”

How can Yanyan be here?

Su Yuexiang and Shen Xiaoru also have astonished expression.

It should be known that this room’s door has a mechanism, with each of its hinges weighing a thousand catties. Without a key, an average martial practitioner wouldn’t be able to open it at all.

Just how did this Jun Muyan get down here?

Entering in, it’s precisely Muyan, Xiao Bao following closely by her side.

In front of everyone’s flabbergasted looks, Xiao Bao aloofly claps the dust off his hands, then he holds on to Muyan.

Those iron doors are very dusty.

Xiao Bao definitely wouldn’t want to make niangqin’s hand dirty!

Shen Jinglin immediately comes to his senses, “Yanyan, what are you doing here? Even bringing Xiao Bao along… quickly, quickly leave!”

Muyan doesn’t pay him any heed, opting to crouch in front of the unconscious Shen patriarch instead. There’s a complex expression on her face as she murmurs, “Father…”

“Yanyan!” Shen Jinglin hurriedly raises his voice, “Father is fine, he will be cured soon. Can you leave here first?”

Shen Jinglin’s eyes are already wearing a sad and pleading expression as he’s saying this.

Muyan has a harsh look on her face, her voice cold: “Leave here and then do nothing but watch big brother take in a wife that you don’t love – all for father’s sake, and for mine? Oh, it’s not even taking a wife, but entering her family!”

“Muyan, what are you doing?” Su Yuexiang speaks out, “Your brother has been left with no choice, isn’t it all to save your father? Don’t tell me you want to do nothing and watch your father die from madness?”

“Save father?” Muyan sneers, “Then aunt Su, why don’t you let your own daughter go and do something to save him? Why insist to have big brother do it?”

“You…” Su Yuexiang is just about to refute,

Muyan interrupts her, calmly turning to look towards Dr. Zhou, “Besides, if my big brother enters the Zhou family, would my father’s illness really be cured?”

Dr. Zhou hears this and he replies with displeasure, furrowed brows and blazing eyes: “And just what are you? Saying that much, are you questioning this old man’s medical expertise?”

Muyan chuckles: “Empty words, no guarantees. What if after my brother enters the Zhou family, and Dr. Zhou couldn’t cure the illness? Then who could we turn to and account for that? I say, why don’t we do it like this: Dr. Zhou treats my father first, and once he’s cured, let’s come again and discuss the matter about making my brother enter your family.”

“Do you take this old man as a fool?” Dr. Zhou says in anger, “If this old man does cure him, what’s to be done if you go back on your words?”

“Then Dr. Zhou, why don’t you first say one thing clearly – what exactly is my father’s illness?”

“That’s…” Dr. Zhou stutters all of a sudden, “It’s… it’s obviously just the common hysteria! There’s nothing else to say!”
