Chapter 520: Playing the Qin for the Dan Furnace

With fingers on the Tian Mo Qin, Muyan gently strums.

Clang!

Then there’s a flash of light, and that Chi Gu is already in two pieces, falling midair.

Disregarding Liu Se’s unsightly complexion, Muyan waves a hand, and those burning halves of the Chi Gu flies straight into the Dan Furnace.

Joining the fire.

She smoothly sits down in front of it, calmly and unhurriedly placing one herb after another into the Dan furnace.

Neither fast nor slow, she says: “Whether I’ll lose or not, how could we know without trying?”

Liu Se glares fiercely at Jun Muyan, the expression showing in her eyes is unspeakably bitter.

But Shi Lanling suddenly bursts out laughing: “I thought you had some sort of ability, but as it turns out, you were really studying my alchemy from scratch! Hah, in a little while, I’d like to see how you’re going to Condense a Pill!”

With those words, everyone notices it-

The drug ingredients that Muyan has selected, as well as their quantities, they really are exactly the same as Shi Lanling’s.

With that move, all the surrounding doctors show looks of anxiety.

On the contrary, the people on the Ghost City’s side are all jeering and scoffing, overflowing with disdain.

“So she really couldn’t refine Pills! Still, she actually dares to compete against Shi-xianzi in alchemy, simply too ignorant about the immensity of heaven and earth.”

“Ghost Slave-daren really has great fortune! After this, such a lovely woman will certainly be yours!”

The Ghost Slave creepily laughs, making the doctors at the side all turn deathly pale.

At last, the handling and placement of the herbs are finally done.

With the burning flame, the drug ingredients begin to dissolve.

Next, Internal Force would be introduced, and Pill Condensation will begin.

At least half of the entire Great Hall is waiting to see Muyan make a fool of herself.

But beyond everyone’s expectations-

Muyan doesn’t place a hand over the furnace to pour her Internal Force.

Instead, she picks up the Tian Mo Qin next to her, and starts to gently pluck the strings.

Everyone is immediately struck dumb, not understanding what she means by doing this.

Shi Lanling stares blankly, then she suddenly laughs heartily: “I’ve never witnessed someone play music to a cow*, and I’ve never even heard of playing the Qin to a furnace. Jun Muyan, you don’t honestly think that after those herbs listen to the sound of your zither, they will just gain sentience and move by themselves to condense? Hahahaha…”

idiom: doing good to an unappreciative/deaf audience

All the people around Shi Lanling laugh.

Almost everyone believes that Muyan is in a death-struggle.

They’ve never before heard of someone being able to concoct Pills by playing the Qin.

But along with the sound of the zither reverberating through the area,

The flames within the Dan furnace roars higher and higher.

And it faintly emits a clear and pure silver glow.

Unexpectedly, those now-dissolved herbs are slowly starting to show signs of condensing.

“How… how could this be? Just by playing the Qin, how could it possibly prompt the Dan Fire to condense the herbs?!”

“Can’t you guys feel it? The sound of Dr. Jun’s zither contains Internal Force.”

“Could… could one truly be able to condense Pills through the sound of the Qin?!”

In a split second, the insolent smile on Shi Lanling’s face freezes.

Seeing this scene, each and every one of the doctors show expressions pleasant surprise.

“I’ve heard that Dr. Jun is also called the Music Healer. That’s because whenever she treats a patient, she can get rid of the ailment through music. I didn’t expect that she could also use the zither sound to refine medicine.”

“This is really brilliant, a godly skill!”

Shi Lanling stiffly stares at the slowly condensing Elixir inside the Dan Furnace, willing it to crack under her glare, “Impossible! How could this happen?! How could this slut possibly condense a Pill by just playing the Qin…”

She has yet to finish what she’s saying,

When that bronze furnace tripod suddenly starts to shudder violently, producing a creaking sound.

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.

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

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.

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

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 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!”

Chapter 219: Coerce

“Father!” the rims of Shen Jinglin’s eyes redden as soon as he sees this man. He calls out with a low voice and steps forward.

As if he could feel a living person approach, the man immediately snarls and opens his mouth, frenziedly biting over.

Shen Jinglin staggers back.

Looking at his father Shen Yicheng’s miserable appearance, he could no longer hold his tears back from falling.

Just at this moment, Dr. Zhou faintly speaks from behind: “Step aside! This doctor will give him a treatment first.”

Saying that, he steps forward and presses several acupuncture points on Shen Yicheng’s body.

Then, Dr. Zhou makes him drink a bottle of draught.

When the draught reaches his stomach, something magical occurs.

The Shen father who had been raving madly all this while, actually slowly calms down, falling to lie down on the floor. He’s completely silent.

Shen Jinglin steps forward to check, and finds that his father has unexpectedly, truly fallen asleep.

Since the onset of his father’s illness, he had never lain down to get a proper sleep.

But after taking Dr. Zhou’s medicine, he, he has actually genuinely fallen asleep.

“Dr. Zhou, your medical skills are seriously too brilliant!” Su Yuexiang loudly exclaims in admiration, bowing again and again, “Still, asking the sage doctor’s benevolence, please save our family’s master!”

Dr. Zhou strokes his beard, a proud look on his face: “Of course, it’s possible for this old man to save him.”

“But I have already said my conditions! Shen Jinglin must enter my Zhou family, otherwise, I’ll have to ask you to find someone who’s better qualified than me!”

“Dr. Zhou, if you won’t save him, it would be an irreversibly hopeless situation for our master!” Su Yuexiang cries out in alarm, her face filled with anxiousness.

After that, she turns towards Shen Jinglin.

Tears streaming down, she appears unspeakably pitiful, “Jinglin, aunt Su is already begging you. We only have widows and orphans left in the Shen family. Without your father’s support, our Shen family would collapse! I’m begging you, save the master!”

Shen Jinglin fearfully looks at his unconcious father, then he turns to look at Dr. Zhou’s daughter.

Said person immediately cracks her mouth towards him, revealing a greedy sacrificial bowl. That mouth sweetly calls out, “Jinglin-brother, Nunu likes you the most, hurry up and become Nunu’s husband!”

Shen Jinglin only feels despair in his heart.

If he agrees, then the second half of his life is as good as ruined.

But if he doesn’t agree, then what about father’s life?

“Jinglin, if you won’t agree, then aunt Su can only agree to the Lu family’s request and marry Muyan to their foolish son, Lu Chengcai. With the Lu family’s enormous influence, their family being extremely wealthy, I believe that we’d definitely be able to find a way to treat the master’s illness.”

Su Yuexiang wipes the tears from her eyes: “I also don’t want to push Muyan into the pit of fire, but who let the Lu family’s foolish son take a fancy to Muyan? If master will never wake up again, the Shen family’s orphans and widows, what can we do if the Lu family imposes to grab our people? Ah, it would be a pity for Muyan, countenance of a flower, face like the moon – only to be married to that fool from the Lu family.”

Shen Jinglin’s teeth makes a grinding sound, despair floods into his eyes.

His tightly clenched fists slowly slackens, his voice hoarse as he says: “As long as I agree to enter into the Zhou family, you must ensure that you can cure my father.”

“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 doesn’t speak too fast nor too slow.

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

Chapter 216: Unreasonable

“But… what if it’s true? What if Shen Musician’s heir has really appeared once again? Di Jun, you should be very clear that if the school of Shen Musician ever recovers, it could bring about a great disaster to the Xiuxian Continent.”

A heavy killing intent flits across Leng Qingwan’s cold countenance, “As long as it concerns the Shen Musicians, we ought to kill one to warn a hundred, eliminate the dangers forever…”

Leng Qingwan still hasn’t finished her speech, when the chair that the man is sitting on suddenly disintegrates into powder under his hand.

A dreadful pressure spreads within the main hall, making Leng Qingwan tremble involuntarily.

Di Ming Jue towers over and looks down, coldly looking at her, “Since when was it Tian Yi Men’s turn to come and remark on Ben Jun’s affairs? Get out!”

“You–!!” Leng Qingwan’s complexion turns pale from anger, her chest can only heave up and down.

Very quickly however, she calms herself down.

That’s because in the entire Xiuxian Continent, there’s no one who’s unaware that the Polar Domain’s Di Jun is notoriously uncompromising under force or persuasion, an antisocial and icily arrogant character.

No matter how much other women want to see Di Ming Jue, even standing in front of him would be impossible!

She, however, could still see him from time to time.

This is the greatest difference about her and Di Jun, it also shows off her friendship with him.

Leng Qingwan’s expression slowly resumes its tranquility, she softens her voice as she says: “Why is Di Jun so eager to cover up the news about the Shen Musician? Could it be that Di Jun knows something?”

Di Ming Jue’s eyes darken, the desire to commit murder looms in his mind.

At the other side, Elder Chang suddenly laughs and says: “In that case, Qingwan-fairy is so insistent to make sure that the Shen Musicians are killed to the very last one – is it because Tian Yi Men was completely suppressed and overwhelmed by the Shen Musicians back then, having been the second best for a very long time, so you now have an unbalanced mentality as a result?”

“Stop your nonsense!!”

Those words seem to have stabbed Leng Qingwan where it hurts, making her lash out in fury, “My Tian Yi Men is currently the number one sect of Immortal Medicine, fully deserving and without any reservations- not afraid of anyone, and absolutely not afraid of anyone’s provocations!”

“Hehe… it’s naturally for the best that you’re fearless. This old bones thought that Qingwan-fairy and the people of Tian Yi Men are particularly afraid of the consequences if there comes a day when the Shen Musicians would rise again!”

Leng Qingwan’s chest continuously moves up and down, there’s obviously vain shame and unwillingness in her eyes.

Unfortunately, no matter how she refutes, it only seems to reveal what’s supposed to be hidden.

In the end, she has no alternative but to leave out in a huff.

As soon as Leng Qingwan leaves, the old man at the side speaks: “Jun Shang, why should you be so cold and not amenable to reason towards Qingwan-fairy? Looking at the entire Xiuxian Continent – be it on cultivation, appearance, or identity – it could be said that Qingwan-fairy is the only one that could match Jun Shang and be your wife.”

Di Ming Jue frowns and a trace of impatience flashes through his eyes.

At the other side, Elder Chang is unusually considerate as he promptly helps Jun Shang with his difficulties, “Elder Ji ah, you couldn’t have forgotten that Jun Shang has been given a decree by fate, his marriage has been bound by heaven to the woman of destiny.”

Hearing these words, Di Ming Jue’s brows immediately relax.

He turns to look at Elder Chang and inconspicuously nods.

Well said! There will be a reward later!

Elder Chang then strokes his beard, old face brazenly wrinkled in laughter.

Yet Elder Ji knits his brows, his face filled with disdain, “What woman of destiny, it’s nothing more than some crazy and unfounded ravings! I think that Qingwan-fairy is pretty good. If she’s married to Jun Shang, then it would be as if entire Tian Yi Men would belong to my Polar Domain.”

Di Ming Jue icily looks him over, “If you like her so much, why don’t you take her back as a wife? Then it would be as if the entire Tian Yi Men would belong to our Polar Domain.”

Chapter 209: “Little Old Man”

“Is that really Jun Muyan?” Su Yuexiang’s voice suddenly interjects.

Shen Xiaoru turns around and nods: “Yes ma, that slut Jun Muyan unexpectedly didn’t die! I suspect that aunt and cousin’s deaths are definitely linked to that slut’s work! Ma, making that slut fall into the field of living death, it’s also my revenge for my aunt and cousins.”

Still, Su Yuexiang disdainfully curls her lips, then she slightly puckers her brows.

You can say that Su Yuexiang completely lacks any deep affection when it comes Su Zhiyong’s family.

It’s because that Su Zhiyong’s side is really too much of a waste, too useless.

The older brother Su Ding’an is already in his forties but is just in the middle of Primary Stage. Su Zhiyong didn’t even reach Primary Stage before dying, just an Entry Level martial practitioner.

She only had them deal with Jun Muyan that time, because it’s better to send them away and they’re not likely to attract any attention.

If this kind of wastes die, then they’re dead – she, Su Yuexiang won’t place them in her eyes.

Just, how can Jun Muyan come back alive?

The image of those black men couldn’t help but emerge within Su Yuexiang’s mind, coming to her lounge and identifying the origin of Jun Muyan and the blood of her unborn child.

Those men in black were so terrifyingly strong.

Didn’t that group kill Jun Muyan?

Why is that woman allowed to live?

“Ma, what’s wrong? Could it be that you don’t approve to have that slut marry over as my replacement?”

Shen Xiaoru’s voice makes Su Yuexiang come back to herself, “I approve, of course I approve. Ru-er has really grown up, you can already help your Ma with worries and difficulties. Hehe… Jun Muyan who got pregnant out of marriage back then, she had already lost her chastity, this slut who’s as fickle as water – for the Lu family to lift her up with an eight-carrier palanquin and marry her in, she should laugh up to her sleeves.”

“During this time however, we must find someone to watch her closely. By all means, we cannot let her run away before the Lu family comes to pick her up.”

===

In the courtyard.

Muyan skins a grape and places it on Xiao Bao’s mouth. With a soft chuckle, “Baby, don’t be so serious. If you wrinkle your brows too much, you’ll turn into a little old man.”

Xiao Bao jolts.

That annoying lecher immediately comes to mind!

In the future, is he going to become a “little old man” like that lecher?

Never!

Xiao Bao makes his cheeks bulge, slightly bending his brows and eyes up, all to exhibit that he has smiled.

However, this look of a little grown-up amuses Muyan, making her laugh and sway to and fro.

When she has laughed enough, she asks: “Why is my baby so angry?”

Xiao Bao’s expression suddenly becomes severe, “Because they want to scheme against niangqin!”

Just a moment ago, he was simply going around the area at will, Internal Force operating at his ear cavity.

All the sounds inside the house were transmitted into his ears.

Bad eggs want to scheme against niangqin, he won’t let those bad eggs get away with it!

Xiao Bao clenches his small fists, “Xiao Bao will protect niangqin!”

With a smile that isn’t a smile, Muyan looks at the house that Shen Xiaoru went into.

Shen Xiaoru had asked her to wait here for now.

So she didn’t get in, just waiting here.

But that doesn’t mean that she’s not aware of the what happened inside.

Muyan withdraws her gaze. She carries Xiao Bao and kisses him on the cheek, “Don’t worry about those boring things. Doesn’t Xiao Bao want to sight-see with niangqin, and see the place where nianqin grew up?”

Xiao Bao immediately nods, and although there is no expression on his little face, his blue irises have the brightness of a full moon.

“There used to be a swing here, daddy personally set it up for me.”

“As children, we would often catch fishes from this pond. Catching the fish, older brother was in charge of roasting, I was in charge of eating.”
