Chapter 521: Furnace Explosion

The Pill Furnace seems to be unable to withstand some powerful energy, as it’s shaking nonstop.

Then before anyone could react, they hear a loud boom.

The whole furnace tripod bursts open with an explosion, sparks flying about in all directions.

The people in the Great Hall are somewhat blinded for an instant.

Shi Lanling’s incredulous voice comes to grinding halt, going silent for a brief moment, then she suddenly erupts with absolutely unrestrained laughter, “Hahaha… a furnace explosion, it’s actually a furnace explosion. Jun Muyan, you’ve lost!!”

Didn’t she say, without the secret method of Pill Condensation, and only relying on Internal Force, how could Jun Muyan possibly be successful?

Just now, ‘using zither sound to perform alchemy’, it was just this slut bluffing.

The doctors look at the Dan Furnace that has already turned into broken pieces of copper and iron. All their faces are filled with hopelessness.

It’s over. This time, it’s really over.

Just a moment ago, they really thought that Muyan would be successful.

The greater the hope, the bigger the disappointment.

Among everyone there, only Muyan’s expression hasn’t changed in the slightest. Her fingers are still moving gently on the Tian Mo Qin.

Dense Internal Force coils around her fingertips, pouring into the Tian Mo Qin.

During that period of time, there’s also another unseen energy mixed in.

Along with the Internal Force seeping into the Tian Mo Qin,

Indeed… it’s Spiritual Power!

“Haha, Ghost Slave, why are you still just staring blankly? From now on, Jun Muyan is definitely yours!”

Shi Lanling reveals a sadistic smile, darkly saying, “Wait until her meridians are destroyed, and however you want to play with her or abuse her, it would all be at your liberty!”

Hearing what she said, the Ghost Slave has his pair of turbid yellow eyes burn brightly.

He licks his lips, zit-covered cheeks slightly shaking from excitement. He makes his way towards Muyan, “Madam Enchantress, a moment of Spring Night is worth a thousand gold. Since you and I are already husband and wife, I think there’s no need to wait, follow me into the bridal room now!”

“Fuck off! You disgusting beast!” Dr. Song immediately steps forward, his body is still on the verge of collapse, but it suddenly releases pressure all over, “As long as I’m still alive, I won’t let your filthy hands touch Jun Muyan!!”

More doctors up the ante with their lives, wanting to guard in front of Muyan.

But Han Ye’s movements are faster than theirs.

The long sword strikes out, firmly pressing against that Ghost Slave’s chest. With a grim laugh: “If you have the ability, move another step forward.”

To actually dare to covet the future Mistress of their Polar Domain, haha, he’s truly tired of living!

Liu Se sneers: “Han Ye-daren, what are you doing – if you agree to bet, you must accept to lose. Even if you are the Dark Lord’s subordinate, you still have to be reasonable.”

“If the Dark Lord, as well as Han Ye-daren, really want to force people, I’m afraid that the Dark Lord’s prestige in the Ghost City would be completely obliterated from now.”

Shi Lanling immediately goes along, “The gamble is Jun Muyan’s to deal with. Don’t tell me that you’re going to back out now that you’ve lost?”

The atmosphere is on a state of mutual hostility, tensed for action.

“Ah–!” from the direction where Muyan is playing, they suddenly hear Dr. Wang cry out in surprise, “Pill Condensation, it’s still at Pill Condensation! The process of Alchemy is still not over!”

“What?!”

“What joke is that?! The Dan Furnace has exploded, how could it possibly still be at Pill Condensation?!”

With this shout, everyone’s attention is immediately drawn towards it.

No one believes that a Pill Furnace that as already blown up might still continue refining Pills.

But the scene that enters their eyes next-

It overturns everyone’s imagination.

Each and every one of them are made to widen their eyes in shock, simply unable to believe what they’re seeing.

Chapter 517: The Price of Losing

“What nonsense are you saying?!” Han Ye immediately bellows, preparing to charge towards that slave and Shi Lanling.

But Muyan pulls him to stay.

From what they’ve discussed, Muyan knows that Han Ye and the others couldn’t interfere too much with the affairs of the Yanwu Continent.

More than that, they cannot just casually harm a person of the Yanwu Continent, or they will suffer Heavenly Retribution.

The doctors at the side are also talking all at once, raining curses on Shi Lanling.

“Shi Lanling, don’t push too far. If you’re going to have an alchemy competition then do that. To actually come up with such a sinister scheme against a little girl, you’ve no sense of shame!”

“Humph, I remember that man from a few nights ago, the one Shi Lanling tried to seduce with her naked body – he was probably Dr. Jun’s man. This woman must be jealous of Dr. Jun, so she came up with such a method!”

“Little girl, you must never agree to her!”

Just then, Liu Se’s terrible, gloomy face finally reveals a smile, “What? Miss Jun, you don’t have that much confidence in your own standard in alchemy? Now, you wouldn’t dare to make a wager?”

“Since Miss Jun herself thinks that she’ll lose, and doesn’t have the guts to gamble, then I’ll just forget about it. I just didn’t expect that the so-called future wife of the Dark Lord would actually be such a gutless weakling, unexpectedly throwing away even the Dark Lord’s face!”

Shi Lanling grinds her teeth and sneers: “Jun Muyan, what do you amount to, how are you worthy of that man! Since you wouldn’t dare to make a bet against me, I think it’s better for you to obediently leave the Dark Lord’s side. How could trash like you be worthy of the Dark Lord?”

Before Shi Lanling could finish what she’s saying, the young woman’s low, sweet-sounding laughter suddenly echoes within the Great Hall.

This laughter makes Liu Se and Shi Lanling stare blankly, when the pair have just been spurred into responding to the negative remarks.

Soon after, they see Muyan raise her head, beautiful peach blossom eyes curved with overflowing ridicule, “You two could really go on and on with so much nonsense. But after talking for quite a while, haven’t you only spoken of what would happen should I lose?”

“What if you lose, Shi Lanling? What price do you intend to pay?”

Shi Lanling is stumped at first, then she soon huffs a laugh, “Me, lose? You think I could lose? Jun Muyan, where did you get that self-confidence, to think that I could be outdone by a waste like you, who has never concocted a Pill before?!”

But Muyan looks calm beyond words, “How would you know that I couldn’t do alchemy?”

“Haha, if you could really do alchemy, you needn’t look for me to refine that Nine-Holed Golden Dan from back then. Jun Muyan, did you think that bluffing would scare me? Are you an idiot?”

At the side, Han Ye couldn’t help but roll his eyes: If you’re not the idiot, who else could it be?

Muyan is as calm and unruffled as before, speaking neither fast nor slow: “Since Shi-xianzi is that confident, let’s do it like this,”

“If Shi-xianzi loses, I won’t demand to have your flesh and blood consumed by the Chi Gu, such an ugly death. But proper behavior is based on reciprocity, I’ll only want your meridians destroyed, and never be able to practice medicine or do alchemy. What do you think?”

A change comes over Shi Lanling’s complexion.

That’s because Muyan really looks too calm, too confident.

Could this woman really perform alchemy?

No! Absolutely impossible!

That Dark Clouds Spirit Flower was so precious, and this woman desperately wants to draw Di Jun’s attentions. If she could really concoct Pills, why would she possibly let Shi Lanling refine the Nine-Holed Golden Dan?

Moreover, at the Ghost City back then, Jun Muyan had a very unhappy expression when the topic of alchemy was mentioned.

It’s obvious that she couldn’t concoct Pills!

Thinking of this, Shi Lanling speaks through gritted teeth: “Fine, it’s decided!”

Chapter 516: Wager

“How is this possible?! Hasn’t Dark Lord’s token disappeared for more than a thousand years?”

Han Ye says: “Now, do you still have any further doubts about the Dark Lord’s existence?”

Liu Se’s complexion bursts into green and white, her eyes fill up with restraining fear, and she couldn’t come up with a single word to say.

Han Ye puts the token away, instantly restoring the freedom of movement to those kneeling Ghost Envoys and Shi Lanling.

Then Shi Lanling’s eyes suddenly light up, her face is filled with adoration and infatuation, “So it turns out that Di Jun is the founder of Ghost City, the Dark Lord!”

It’s no wonder the man is that handsome and powerful.

Making her so deeply infatuated at practically the first sight.

But unfortunately, such a great man has actually taken a fancy to Jun Muyan, this slut who had already lost her innocence.

On the contrary, he spurned and humiliated Shi Lanling in every possible way!

No! No! The Dark Lord didn’t reject her, it was merely because there’s Jun Muyan creating an obstruction from within, that’s why the Dark Lord had misunderstood her.

That’s right, it’s precisely so!

As long as… as long as she eliminates Jun Muyan, as long as she lets the Dark Lord see Jun Muyan as a fickle woman, her ugly and filthy nature-

She believes that the Dark Lord will surely come around and be fond of her.

Shi Lanling stifles her excitement and stands up, she suddenly speaks in a loud voice: “Even if you’ve proven the existence of the Dark Lord, you still cannot certify that this woman is the Dark Lord’s intended!”

“Furthermore, Jun Muyan, you yourself had just agreed to have an alchemy competition against me. Could it be that you want to back out now?”

At first, Muyan was still steeping on the issue that Di Ming Jue is actually the Ghost City’s “Dark Lord”, so she’s not paying attention.

Now hearing Shi Lanling’s words, she couldn’t help but quirk her lips up, “Yes, I’ve agreed to have an alchemy competition against you. If I win, I’ll be allowed to treat the Ghost Lord’s illness, isn’t that right!”

She is answering Shi Lanling’s words, but she’s looking at Ghost King Liu Se.

Liu Se nods, “Yes, as long as you beat Shi-xianzi in alchemy, it would prove that you have the ability to treat the Ghost Lord. I’ll naturally let you go in and minister to the Ghost Lord.”

“If Miss Jun couldn’t refine a Pill, or couldn’t win against Shi-xianzi in alchemy, then it proves that you simply cannot cure the Ghost Lord. Even if you’re the Dark Lord’s wife, haha… that still wouldn’t qualify you to go in and treat the Ghost Lord’s illness.”

Muyan nods, “Good, then let’s start right away.”

Shi Lanling glares at her, lightly asking, “You really refuse to take the Chi Gu, yet you’re going to compete against me in alchemy?”

“But this way, wouldn’t it be too dull? Why don’t we make a bet! I wonder if you’d dare, Jun Muyan!”

Muyan raises her brows, “Oh? What kind of bet?”

Shi Lanling laughs lowly.

But this smiling expression is without the slightest bit of elegance and purity. On the contrary, it’s brimming with cold bitterness and savagery, “If you lose, then your cultivation will be abolished, you will be married to that slave next to Ghost King Liu, and you will serve the Ghost City forever. What say you?”

Saying that, she points a finger to someone behind Liu Se.

She’s referring to a man standing behind the Ghost King.

He also has the Ghost City’s symbol embroidered on his clothes, but he’s different from the other Ghost Envoys.

He’s not a Ghost Envoy, but a mere Ghost Slave deployed by Liu Se.

And so, almost everyone in the room pays more attention to him.

That’s because the appearance of this slave is extremely ugly, he could even be compared to Liu Se.

Hearing what Shi Lanling said, that Ghost Slave immediately splits his lips open, revealing a mouthful of yellow teeth. His smile is very wretched and depraved, “Many thanks to Shi-xianzi, if this slave could really marry Enchantress of Medicine, I’ll surely make her properly serve the Ghost City and the Ghost King!”

Chapter 514: No need to eat it

Shi Lanling sneers as she says: “Not going to take the Chi Gu? Without the assistance of the Chi Gu, can a mere waste like you refine an Elixir? Stop dreaming. Or are you thinking that even if you lose, as long as you don’t take the Chi Gu, you could still escape a tragedy?”

“Haha, Jun Muyan, you’re really too naive. My advice is that you better eat the Gu bug right away, and maybe you could also have the qualifications to measure your hand against mine. If not, your death would only be more unsightly!”

Saying that, she waves a hand.

A Ghost Envoy immediately carries a small black cup, handing it before Muyan.

Muyan has a smile that isn’t a smile, not moving, “I said I don’t need it, so I don’t need it. Ghost King Liu only asked us to do alchemy, but she didn’t say that we must take the Chi Gu in order concoct Pills.”

“That isn’t up to you!” Shi Lanling speaks through gritted teeth, “I don’t care about whatever the hell you’re planning, but today, you’re going to eat this Gu bug whether you want to or not!”

“Someone come, stuff the Chi Gu into her mouth, I’ll see how she could still be arrogant.”

Hearing the order, the Ghost Envoy who’s holding that small goblet deftly picks up the small black bug inside.

His hand must’ve undergone some unknown special treatment.

The Gu bug makes contact with his skin, but it surprisingly didn’t directly burrow inside, remaining quiet and calm instead, like it’s sleeping.

That Ghost Envoy picks up the Gu bug and slowly approaches Muyan.

Just when the bug gets closer and closer to Muyan, it seems to come alive all of a sudden, as it forcefully shoots out from the Ghost Envoy’s hand.

It’s as if Muyan’s flesh and blood strongly attracts it.

Liu Se’s eyes light up, and in the way she looks at Muyan, apart from hatred, there’s a bit more suspicion.

This is the first time she feels that her Gu bug is so excited and worked up.

Even the mother Gu within her body seems to have been affected, as it begins to get restless within her.

There must be something special in this woman’s flesh that attracts them!

In a moment, that terrifying pitch-black Gu bug is about to make contact with the snow-white surface of Muyan’s bright and translucent skin.

Muyan snorts, her fingertips faintly drumming in the air in a wave-like pattern.

In an instant, along with a silvery flash of light, there’s an almost imperceptible hum of a zither.

Soon after, there’s only a slashing sound, and in a flash, the Chi Gu that was still mid-jump just a moment ago is split into two.

At almost the same instant the the Chi Gu is chopped in half, the bug is caught by a blue flame.

It burns that Gu into ashes.

Even the Ghost Envoy has his fingers burnt black. He takes quite a while to come to himself and react, producing a miserable shriek.

Shi Lanling has been waiting for the frightened and panicked look on Muyan after she swallows the Chi Gu.

Who knew that it would so easily and skillfully be neutralized by this woman.

Her features instantly distort. Snarling in a harsh voice: “Trash, what are you all still dawdling about for! With so many Chi Gu, I don’t believe that she could escape them all! Hurry and do it!”

Hearing the order, the Ghost Envoys immediately rush over like a swarm of bees.

All of them holds a Gu bug in their hands.

Muyan chuckles, flipping her wrist. In a split second, a sleek and simple zither appears with a splendor in her hands.

Slender, unadorned fingers gently strum on the strings.

The melody of Shining Spears and Armored Horses resounds through the entire Great Hall.

With it, sound blades shoot out at a speed that the eyes cannot follow.

Muyan knows better than anyone, that if she lets these Gu bugs fall to the ground, they will burrow everywhere an indiscriminately.

Even if she’s not worried for herself, the other doctors would certainly suffer a disaster.

And so…

Swish–swish–swish–!

The zither sounds turn into blades, flying out to all directions.

But each one accurately strikes the bugs in the Ghost Envoys’ hands.

Chapter 513: I will win

If they’re all going to die here today, the study of medicine in the Yanwu Continent will fall back by at least thirty years.

And the cause of all this, is merely their covetous thoughts towards the secret method of Pill Condensation!

But at this very moment, Muyan, who extracted a Gu unaided, has made them see hope.

This young girl, not yet twenty years old, yet she has such medical skills that are fantastic to the extreme.

She could even refine draughts capable of regrowing dead flesh and bones.

(Dr. Song’s chest wound, downing just a single bottle of draught, and he heals completely in a wink of an eye.)

Such a good seedling, rarely seen in ten thousand years, a spark of fire that can improve the art of healing in the Yanwu Continent by a whole realm – how could they allow her to be snuffed out?

And so, right now, all the doctors who were previously greedy for life and afraid of death – they rise up.

They stand in front of Muyan.

Even Dr. Wang, who had once ridiculed and laughed at Muyan, both his legs are shaking as he also stands in front of her.

They spread out arms that are emphatically not strong, like an eagle guarding a chick, they hide Muyan behind them.

Muyan dazedly looks at this scene, and she couldn’t help but raise a hand and press it against her own chest.

In that space of her heart, which should be icebound and firmly clutched by hatred-

She doesn’t know why, but right now, a warm current wells up.

This warmth washes through every cell of her entire body, making her taste bitterness, feel ashamed, and yet moved beyond words.

Muyan takes a deep shuddering breath, and she parts the crowd of doctors blocking in front of her.

She directs a faint smile towards Liu Se and Shi Lanling, “All right, I will compete against you in Alchemy!”

“Little girl, don’t be impetuous!”

“Right, that Shi Lanling, even old Song couldn’t compete against her, how could you be her match?”

“Dr. Jun, you’re an expert in drugs and medical techniques, there’s simply no need to have a trial in alchemy against that contemptible woman. She’s already been immersing herself in alchemy for nearly ten years, and you’re not even two decades old right now. How could you possibly rival her?”

The doctors around Muyan are all anxious. One after another, earnest an well-meaning, they try to persuade her.

“Little girl, stop acting brave this instance. We’re just a bunch of old farts braving death, but that’s overall better than having a little girl like you drop dead. You better run away at once!”

Muyan looks at the various anxious faces scolding her. Even though they speak with harsh words, they are filled with concern towards her.

Her brows and eyes bend frivolously, and she reveals a respectful smiling expression. Slowly stooping down to bow, “Elders, thank you for your care. But this match is between me and Shi Lanling. Still I ask all the Elders to believe in me. I will win.”

In a short while, everyone’s a bit stunned.

When the girl before their eyes smiles, it’s as brilliant as the blazing sun, outstripping all the flowers that bloom, nothing more beautiful can be imagined. But it’s not because of that-

But it’s because her smile is filled with self-confidence and intractability, as if saying ‘what Liu Se, what Chi Gu, what Shi Lanling – they are but mere insects in her eyes.’

She Lanling doesn’t see that expression on Muyan, but she hears the other’s words. She immediately shows contempt, “Jun Muyan, why are you still wasting words, hurry up and take the Chi Gu so you can challenge me!”

“I simply couldn’t wait to see, after you lose to me, that appearance of a dried corpse consumed by the Chi Gu. Hahaha…”

Muyan brushes her clothes, unhurriedly turning around.

Peach blossom eyes sparkle like the gleaming reflection of waves in sunlight, deep and bottomless, but with neither a thread nor a hair of panic.

She merely sweeps her gaze over Liu Se and Shi Lanling, only then does she heedlessly say: “There’s no need to take the Chi Gu. If you want to have a trial in Alchemy, then let’s begin right away.”

As soon as she says this, Shi Lanling and Liu Se are both stumped for words.

Then, Liu Se quickly wrinkles her brows, her ice-cold gaze falling on Muyan like a blade.

Chapter 509: This old man will take your place

But when she turns to Muyan, she suddenly comes into contact with a pair of deep, bottomless peach blossom eyes.

Neither shifting nor averting, yet they give her a certain bone-piercing chill.

Liu Se’s slightly narrows her eyes, the muscles on her crinkly, pockmarked face trembles a little.

This is the woman who killed her Xuan Ji.

Haha, Liu Se will not grant her a quick death!

She must make her suffer and be tormented with fear and despair, little by little, torture her to death.

A dark gleam flashes through Liu Se’s eyes, however.

She has this feeling, that there’s a familiar yet frightening power in this woman’s body.

What exactly is it?

Her gaze sweeps past Muyan, finally landing on a random person, “Next, you!”

“No… don’t! I don’t want to take that Gu bug, spare me! Spare me!”

……

Two hours later, there are already three more corpses in the spacious Great Hall.

Each of them had their flesh and blood sucked dry by the Chi Gu, their hearts eaten up, their deaths incomparably miserable.

Of these three doctors, not one of them was able to successfully refine a second level Elixir.

The entire hall is deathly quiet, only Shi Lanling’s insolent laughter echoes through the place.

“Hahaha… you call yourselves acclaimed doctors, but you can’t even refine a second level Elixir. What else are you, if not trash?”

She looks at everyone with her eyes brimming with bitterness and resentment.

The noble fairy that previously placed herself above the common populace, at this moment, she has completely vanished.

Three days ago, when Di Ming Jue had kicked out her naked figure from his room, she was seen by a lot of people in the Ghost Wind Valley.

Since then, Shi Lanling places her hate not only on Jun Muyan, but she also hates everyone in this Valley.

If she lets someone leave here alive, her reputation will truly be ruined.

Furthermore, she completely lost face in front of everyone here, mocked and humiliated.

These people, why should they be allowed to stand tall and exist as respected doctors?

She will see these people become more wretched than her, even worse than a dog or a pig.

Especially this slut, Jun Muyan!

Shi Lanling looks at Muyan, and sees that there’s no longer a leisurely expression on her face, but she looks focused and serious.

Her heart really feels indescribably light.

Seeing so many people die tragically, this slut is finally afraid!

But fear is also useless!

Today, I will have you die without a burial site!!

“Tsk, tsk. So many have died already. Who should be next?”

Shi Lanling laughs lowly, and she suddenly shifts her line of sight towards Muyan, “Jun Muyan, as my Ghost City’s Shenshu, as well as the Enchantress of Medicine with such grand reputation, don’t you want to do your best for our Ghost Lord?”

Standing beside Muyan, Dr. Wang’s complexion transforms, and he uncontrollably trembles all over.

Yet he still couldn’t help but shakily speak: “Dr. Jun- Dr. Jun is the best in refining draughts, and she’s still so young, she still… doesn’t have to…”

“Hah, if you don’t want to make her come up and perform alchemy, are you volunteering?”

Hearing Shi Lanling’s retort, Dr. Wang immediately goes deathly pale, no longer daring to say anything more.

Muyan snorts, and is about to step forward.

Suddenly, a loud and clear voice rises, “This old man will compete against you!”

Muyan stares blankly, and sees Dr. Song stride forward.

He holds in his hand that small cup that contains the Chi Gu.

Seeing that he wants to swallow that Chi Gu, Muyan quickly stops him, “Dr. Song, you don’t have to take my place…”

“What nonsense are you saying!” with a grave look, Dr. Song glares at Muyan, loudly saying, “The Enchantress of Medicine Jun Muyan, I have heard your name, I’ve also heard people say that you refine godly draughts.”

Chapter 481: Henpecked Man
 
    “Little Master, we’ve finished our business. Let’s go back!” Ying Mei’s voice slowly comes through.
 
    Her voice carries gentleness and reverence. Nowhere is the savagery from just a moment ago, not even a bit.
 
    Xiao Bao blinks his huge eyes, obediently holding out a hand to let Ying Mei take it, and they leave this hidden underground stone room.
 
    He hasn’t seen his mother for a day already, so he wants niangqin now!
 
    Behind them, Han Ye bitterly looks at Xiao Bao being led along by that small hand, hating that he couldn’t replace Xiao Bao’s hand with his own and be pulled along.
 
    Thinking off his performance today, his expression becomes incomparably dispirited once more.
 
    He’s really too useless!
 
    He wasn’t able to be the hero who saves the beauty, relying instead on the Lady’s medicine and the Little Master’s assistance so they could get out of danger.
 
    If that animal really managed to do harm to Little Shadow and sullied her, he… he… would truly not have any face to keep on living!
 
    Even in the final vengeance, it was also Little Shadow who ran the whole show all by herself.
 
    He didn’t help with anything.
 
   Even in the Polar Domain, among Jun Shang’s trusted aide’s, there’s no shortage of men who are more handsome than him, more powerful than him, and more worthy of Little Shadow than him. What qualifications does he possess to delude himself that he could stand by Little Shadow’s side?
 
    Slowly, Han Ye’s footsteps become as heavy, as if weighted with lead.
 
    The initially fiery heart drops to the lowest ebb as well.
 
    Just then, he suddenly hears Ying Mei’s clear and cool voice from up ahead, “Stupid, what are you dawdling about over there?”
 
    Startled, Han Ye promptly speeds up his pace to catch up with Ying Mei.
 
    However, his expression is still as melancholic as before, not even daring to raise his eyes and look at Ying Mei.
 
    Ying Mei sighs softly, and releases Xiao Bao’s hand. Lowering her voice: “It seems like my foot has sustained injuries. It kind of hurts to walk!”
 
    “Ah! Your foot is injured? How can that be? Is it a heavy injury?!” Han Ye loses his head all of a sudden, quickly trying to go and examine the condition of Ying Mei’s injury.
 
    Ying Mei’s foot is indeed covered in a lot of blood, and it appears somewhat dreadful.
 
    But Han Ye doesn’t realize that all the blood belongs to Xuan Ji.
 
    In theory, with Ying Mei’s body, and with her Spiritual Power restored, ordinary injuries would heal within a blink of an eye.
 
    But Han Ye simply couldn’t think of these in his panic.
 
    Ying Mei watches his appearance of panic, of him being at a loss of what to do, and a sliver of warmth flits across her eyes, “Idiot, too noisy. Carry me on your back and let’s return!”
 
    “Ah–!” Han Ye is silly for quite a while, before he abruptly comes back to his senses.
 
    Red-faced, he crouches down and carries Ying Mei on his back.
 
    As the girl soft body presses up against his back, Han Ye becomes stiff all over, and he almost forgets to breathe.
 
    Xiao Bao is carrying the fat rabbit as he follows behind the pair, watching the way Han Ye looks, as he walks like a snail crawls. They can’t help but shake their heads together.
 
    “Bunny, idiot Uncle Han Ye is definitely going to be a henpecked man later!”
 
    The phrase ‘henpecked man’ is also something that Xiao Bao and niangqin saw within Baili Liuyin’s notes.
 
    The fat rabbit turns to look up at Xiao Bao, mung bean eyes blinking. It inwardly says: ‘Even that terrifying Di Jun is a henpecked man. If his subordinate is also the same, what’s so strange about that?’
 
    ===
 
    Huang Yao Country.
 
    The night is moonless and windy, and there’s not a sound to be heard.
 
    In a remote ravine, the heavy smell of blood permeates the air, putrid, then there’s the sound of heart-tearing, lung-splitting howls of pain that fills the night.
 
    A very long while later, the wailing of anguished voices finally fade away and disappear without a trace.
 
    But the reek of blood and rot becomes all the more pervasive.
 
    “Princess, what do you think of this batch of [Corpse Soldiers]?”
 
    Under the dim light of night, there’s a tall, ugly woman with wrinkles and dark brown vein lines covering her whole face. She’s bowing in front of Gong Qianxue.
 
    Hanging on her face is an indescribable smugness.
 
    Not far from the pair, several hundred people are standing.
 
    Only, perhaps those could no longer be called ‘people’.

EMHS – ch480

Chapter 480: Extremely frightening
 
    Han Ye clutches his stomach, his features are scrunched up, and he lets out a muffled groan.
 
    Ying Mei sees his pained appearance, and she can’t help but inwardly panic, a faint sense of distress rising up from the bottom of her heart.
 
    Her punch just now, it wasn’t too heavy, was it?
 
    Did she really hurt Han Ye?
 
    The apprehension in her mind is making her firmly knit her brows.
 
    But in end, she couldn’t contain her anxiousness. Getting closer to Han Ye, she asks with a cold face: “I didn’t use a lot of Spiritual Power, you can’t be that useless…”
 
    She still hasn’t finished speaking, when she’s suddenly hugged by the man in front of her.
 
    Han Ye’s slightly hoarse voice sounds in her ears, “Little Shadow, you still care about me. I’m so happy!”
 
    “Scoundrel, let go!” Ying Mei spares no effort to struggle.
 
    During their usual sparring, Han Ye is undoubtedly not as good as her.
 
    But at this very moment, the man’s scorching breath is puffing at her neck, unexpectedly making her heart feel like it’s being tickled by countless feathers. A warm current inexplicably springs up in her body, making it go soft, unable to move a single step.
 
    Damn it! Could it be that the effects of the drug Xuan Ji has given her still hasn’t disappeared?
 
    Just then, they hear the violent sound of an explosion from inside the room.
 
    It is closely followed by a thick, nauseating smell of blood.
 
    Numerous Strange Beast corpses seem like they’re engulfed and swept away by a hurricane as they rush out from within.
 
    The trio promptly disperse.
 
    Soon after, they see Xuan Ji soaked in blood from head to foot, his eyes red as he emerges from the room.
 
    “Little bastard, I’m going to kill you! I’m going to peel off every inch of your skin!!”
 
    Xuan Ji makes his way towards Xiao Bao, viciousness and brutality in his eyes.
 
    Before he could come near however-
 
    Ying Mei has stepped forward, blocking in front of Xiao Bao.
 
    Xuan Ji’s line of sight unhurriedly falls on Ying Mei’s face which, male or female, is indisputably beautiful. He shows a malicious smile, “Why, I have yet to make Ying Mei-daren taste the flavor of ecstasy, but you already couldn’t stop thinking about me?”
 
    “Don’t worry, just wait until I dispose of Han Ye and that little bastard child, then I’ll definitely let you have what you desire. Today, none of you may escape.”
 
    There’s not the slightest change in Ying Mei’s expression.
 
    She turns her wrist, and a longsword is slowly unsheathed in her hands.
 
    “I also said that once I’m out of my predicament, I’m definitely going to chop you up in thousands of pieces, not allowing you to possess the will to live, and not allow you to die when you seek for death.”
 
    Ying Mei’s voice carries youth’s distinctive clarity and coherence, but it is mixed with slivers of terrifying ice-cold austerity.
 
    Xuan Ji stares blankly, a small change comes over his complexion, “How- how can you move? There’s no one in the Yanwu Continent who can counter the effects of the Spirit Devouring Powder!”
 
    Clang–!
 
    The sword is fully unsheathed, flickering with a cold gleam, “You want to know the reason? Go to the eighteenth layer of hell, then ask the real King of the Underworld!”
 
    An hour later.
 
    Ying Mei withdraws her sword, kicking aside the still-squirming lump of mushy flesh beside her feet.
 
    With fixed eyes, the rabbit in Xiao Bao’s arms stare at the person slowly making her way to them, and the rabbit can’t help but shudder.
 
    This Ying Mei may seem like a beautiful youngster, pure and crystalline, but her way of torturing people is really… too terrifying!
 
    Compared to the female devil, it’s simply not inferior in any aspect.
 
    Under her hand, that Xuan Ji clearly shouldn’t last for a small cup of tea (5mins).
 
    But he’s been kept alive and tortured by her for an hour.
 
    Even now, to say nothing of his flayed skin, most of his bones have been pulled out.
 
    Against reason, he’s neither dead nor alive, but still struggling at death’s door.
 
    The rabbit is now a little envious of Xiao Bao as Han Ye is covering his eyes, so he didn’t see anything.
 
    It could be said that the fat rabbit, who has been watching the whole thing from beginning to end, has recently acquired an aversion to eating meat.
 
    It’ll leave the Strange Beasts in the Colosseum for later, the rabbit will come again and eat them next time.

Chapter 297: Calm, Calm Down
    Muyan quickly jumps down from the bed, and uses the water basin at the side to wash her hands and clean her face.
    She promptly sits down by the table and begins to gorge herself. She has quite the oblivious attitude.
    Not even caring about where she is at the moment.
    As the food reaches her mouth, Muyan suddenly widens her eyes and shows an amazed expression.
    So delicious!
    It’s several times more delicious than the expensive foods that she’s eaten in big restaurants!
    She doesn’t know who’s the chef that made this, but actually attaining such a level in the culinary arts-
    Ohh, she really wants to kidnap that person back and have him exclusively cook for her!
    ……
    After eating and drinking her fill, Muyan stretches her body in satisfaction.
    She pats off the nonexistent dust on her clothes, getting up to leave.
    She opens the door and discovers a very big courtyard.
    There’s the fragrance of flowers and the chirping of the birds in the garden.
    There’s also a very wide area that has been cleared out and plowed, with some draught herbs growing on it.
    Each kind is exceptionally precious and uncommon, Muyan has never even come across some of them.
    But she doesn’t intend to stay any longer in this unfamiliar place. She’s afraid that Xiao Bao will get anxious if she returns late.
    “You want to go?” a dark, low, and husky voice suddenly speaks from behind her.
    Muyan falters in her step, but she doesn’t turn around. She directly jumps up instead.
    Her figure is like a nimble flying swallow as she leaps high up in the sky, and over the perimeter wall of the courtyard.
    As long as she crosses over this wall, she would be out of the scope of this yard.
    How Di Ming Jue never expected it. This woman clearly knows that it’s him, even hearing his voice.
    She actually refuses to even turn around and look at him.
    She just runs away!
    Is she so disgusted with him?!
    Thinking of this, the rage in the pit of his stomach surges up along with a burning, tearing kind of pain.
    In a split second, his eyes heat up until they’re red.
    Muyan has one foot gently tapping on the wall, and her figure is about to go off like a bird.
    But suddenly, a powerful and irresistible forge tugs on her waist.
    Indeed, it forcibly drags her back!
    “Bang–!!”
    It’s the sound of the door slamming shut against its frame. The entire room seems to be shuddering.
    Muyan finds herself firmly pressed against the door, both hands pinned on the sides, and she can’t move even a bit.
    The man towers over and looks down on her.
    The dim light inside the room is making the man’s face somewhat hazy.
    But even hazy, it couldn’t conceal the man’s handsome face, with it’s almost perfect contours.
    Moreover, those pair of smoldering eyes are unwavering as they glare at her, like he wants to devour her into his belly.
    Muyan gulps down with some difficulty, “Di Ming Jue, calm, calm down!”
    “Tell me, you want to run away from me? What do you want to go back to?”
    The man leans down, his scalding breath blowing on her face.
    A hint of a blush suddenly appears on the girl’s fair skin, making her absolutely gorgeous countenance seem even more splendid and beguiling.
    Di Ming Jue’s eyes immediately becomes darker.
    His gaze lingers on those delectable lips that look so full and captivating because she had just been sleeping.
    The slightly upturned cherry lips seem like a flower that’s waiting to be plucked.
    The faintly discernible pearly white teeth seem to be waiting for him to lick and invade them, and declare his possession.
    “Di Ming Jue, you…”
    Then, before the woman in his arms could finish what she’s saying, he does it.
    For so many days, he has been thinking about it, longing for it, but he can’t vent out his desire.
    Scorching lips seizes the girl’s soft ones.
    The overbearing atmosphere of invasion goes to swallow up her breath.
    The hand that was pinning Muyan is now pushing her into his embrace.
    He arrests the waist that can’t even fill up his grasp, and firmly presses her into his bosom, not giving her even a little bit of escape.

EMHS – ch266

Chapter 266: Ruining Hongfu Medical Center

    In sharp contrast to the flourishing Junji Medical Center,

    there are fewer and fewer people in Hongfu Medical Center. There’s now only a very small number people in such a large medical establishment, where it was once crowded.

    No matter how low the price for medical treatment is reduced,

    The people coming over are getting fewer with each day.

    There’s only one reason–

    It’s because there’s a big bulletin board hanging at the entrance of the Junji Medical Center.

    It reads:

    This medical establishment only receives two kinds of patients: one, those that the Hongfu Medical Center couldn’t cure; two, those that would no longer visit the Hongfu Medical Center from here on out. The Junji Medical Center will never receive any violators!

    At first glance, this announcement doesn’t matter. Thinking it over however, it wants to bury the Hongfu Medical Center whole.

    If the patients don’t go to the Hongfu Medical Center, do they have other alternatives?

    Of course they do!

    That’s because medical establishments are what Tianyuan City has the most of.

    Even if none are as big as the Hongfu Medical Center, there are still a lot of excellent doctors in those other places.

    Moreover, their fees are still cheaper than the Hongfu Medical Center.

    Now, in the whole Tianyuan City, even in the entire Chi Yan Country, is there anywhere that could replace the Junji Medical Center?

    None!

    Not single one!

    That’s because Jun Muyan’s medical expertise is too outstanding.

    Only she has the miraculous skills to bring the dead back to life.

    Only she can wrestle a life out of the king of hell’s hands.

    Even if those patients don’t have an incurable illness today, who can guarantee that they won’t have it in the future?

    Even if they themselves won’t be afflicted with it, who can guarantee that their family members won’t fall ill in the future?

    Can’t go to the Hongfu Medical Center?

    What about it, just switch to another establishment!

    And they wouldn’t cut the bridge to the renowned “Enchantress”.

    As a result, the families are happy.

    And one can say that the businesses of the other medical establishments in Tianyuan are steadily rising, they’re so happy that they’re grinning from ear to ear.

    The only one that’s out of luck is the Hongfu Medical Center.

    Inside and out of such a big medical establishment, there’s not even the buzzing of flies!

    ……

    When Deng Hongfeng receives the report from the manager, his face becomes so gloomy, it could almost drip water.

    His sharp voice can practically pierce the eardrums, “Say it to me one more time!!”

    The manager trembles with fear, cold sweat oozing out of his forehead, “Dr. Deng, this… this is really not our fault ah! It’s that the Junji Medical Center is really going too far, and that… that Jun Muyan, her medical skills are really too frightening. The doctors that we have, no one… no one can compare with her…”

    As a matter of fact, what the manager really wants to say is:

    Even if they bundle together all the doctors of their Hongfu Medical Center, they won’t be better than even the smallest fraction of Muyan.

    Has anyone heard of an intestinal blockage that could be completely healed in one day?

    Have they heard of people that had their hearts stop beating, yet still be resuscitated?

    Has anyone heard of a patient that was on his dying breath because of a festered wound, that could still be made to leap and frisk about like before?

    This ‘Enchantress’ Jun Muyan, is she really a person?

    Can a person’s medical skills really rise up to this level?

    “Jun Muyan! Jun Muyan! It’s this wretched slut again!!”

    Deng Hongfeng tightly clenches his fists, teeth creaking as he grinds them. The bitter resentment in his eyes is almost bursting with fire.

    “Call that waste Zhao Chunming for me!!”

    It doesn’t take long before Zhao Chunming comes through the door, a fawning smile on his face, “Godfather, you were looking for me…”

    He still hasn’t finished his words.

    Deng Hongfeng raises a foot and ruthlessly kicks the other’s chest, “Waste, didn’t you say that you can make that slut Jun Muyan have a life that’s worse than death? It’s been so many days, you trash, have you done anything at all?!”

    Zhao Chunming tumbles to ground because of that kick, his chest hurts so much that he almost screams out loud.
