Chapter 501: The Play Begins

The Xuan Division that is headed by Ying Mei is the sharpest knife in the Polar Domain, a knife that’s hidden in the dark.

Han Ye and Ying Mei glance at each other, and finally bow: “As you bid, Jun Shang!”

===

For the next three days, Muyan hides inside the Space to do alchemy and refine medicine.

As well as to avoid seeing Di Ming Jue.

It’s really that night, whenever Muyan thinks back on it, it’s as if her entire being is set on fire.

That shameless lecher, scoundrel!!

Just a few soft words of begging had actually, really made her abandon her principles and resistance.

Though they didn’t go all the way, but…

“Madam Enchantress, don’t you feel like something is very odd?”

Dr. Wang’s inquiry pulls her mind back from that fascinating night.

“We were clearly told that we’ve been requested to come and treat the Ghost Lord, but it’s been three days and we have yet to see the face of the sick Ghost Lord. Up until now, we don’t even know what exactly ills him. Don’t you think this is too weird?”

Since the day Muyan had ruthlessly taught him a lesson, after he was awed by her consummate medical expertise-

Dr. Wang has been respectful and fearful towards Muyan.

He would occasionally brave going to Muyan, and ask her questions about the art of healing.

In the course of time, Dr. Wang is practically prostrating himself in admiration towards Muyan’s knowledge and strength.

These past three days, aside from Muyan, other doctors also eventually sensed that something amiss.

It’s already been three days since they were invited to come, and in this three days, the Ghost Wind Valley has been serving to make them comfortable, they can’t point out any faults.

But the problem is: they didn’t come here for pleasure, they’re here to treat an illness!

Just as that was pointed out, a group of Ghost Envoys dressed in the Ghost Wind Valley’s uniform suddenly walks inside in a line.

In a blink, Muyan and Dr. Wang find themselves in the middle of an encirclement.

The leading Ghost Envoy arrogantly looks down on the pair, looking haughty and pitying, “Dr. Jun, Dr. Wang, the Ghost King requests your presence!”

“You’re making us go now?” Dr. Wang shows a flabbergasted expression, “Don’t tell me you’re making us go to treat the Ghost Lord?”

The head Ghost Envoy has his mouth split open to reveal a malicious smile, “Precisely, so if you please, doctors.”

“But the sky is dark now, we’re preparing to retire for the evening.” Dr. Wang quickly says to refute, “For doctors, the most important thing in treating an illness and refining medicine is our concentration and presence of mind. If we go there now, we couldn’t do a proper examination and treatment.”

“Hehe, that isn’t up to you!” the Ghost Envoy derisively snorts, then his gaze becomes more and more chilling, “Haven’t you two heard the saying? If the Ghost King wants you do die on the third watch, you will not survive the fifth watch*. Since our Ghost King-daren is allowing you to treat the patient’s illness now, you have to go there now. Otherwise, don’t blame us for being impolite!”

night watch period. ‘If she wants you to die on midnight, you won’t be alive come 3am.’

As soon as his voice falls, the dozen or so Ghost Envoys unsheathe their weapons, the cold gleams flickering at the tip of their blades, along with the chilling and gloomy atmosphere within the room becoming heavier, close in on Dr. Wang and Muyan little by little.

Dr. Wang is frightened, and he falls from his place, falling on his butt to sit on the floor.

Nevertheless, Muyan has an almost imperceptible quirk at the corners of her mouth.

That Ghost Envoy looks at Muyan and sneers: “Madam Enchantress, I know that several of your subordinates are quite difficult to deal with, but the gate of the Inner chambers is already close at the moment. They wouldn’t be able to come in even if they want to. You should put your ideas to rest!”

Muyan brushes the hems of her coat, and unhurriedly stands up. Her expression is incredibly light and carefree, “After so many days of waiting, the play has finally begun. I’ve already been itching to get on with it, wanting to take a look at the Ghost Lord’s illness. We’ll be troubling you to to lead the way!”

Chapter 500: Extinguish
    A wide palm cups the back of her head, forcing her closer, preventing her from running away.
    But the movements are so gentle, so careful, like cherishing a treasure.
    Muyan sinks a little bit deeper, unable to free herself.
    A long while later, their lips part. Muyan’s lips are slightly red and swollen, all the more alluring.
    A sticky silver trail connects the ends of their lips, and the pulsating and ambiguous atmosphere inside the room seems to be set on fire.
    “Little to no conscience!” Di Ming Jue’s voice is husky and scandalous.
    Wide palms capture her small hand, slowly bringing it lower, and finally pressing it to a hard and hot location.
    Muyan starts, almost jumping straight up. She wants to struggle out of the man’s hand, but she’s restrained and couldn’t move.
    As a result, she becomes increasingly aware of the man’s desire, directly feeling the anticipation of drawn swords and bent bows.
    “Woman without conscience, if I really just want your body, why would I have to restrain myself this hard?”
    Muyan’s face is so red now, it’s almost dripping.
    But it seems as if a fire is reignited in her heart, thawing little by little the ice that had just formed there.
    “Let… let go!”
    But Di Ming Jue presses her hand more firmly, his voice is like a hoarse murmur that carries wisps of begging, “Muyan, before you are completely willing, Ben Jun will not touch you. However, you are responsible for extinguishing the fire you ignite.”
……
    Two hours later, Di Ming Jue has the deeply sleeping girl within his embrace. He bows his head to lightly place a kiss on her forehead.
    Only then does he get up and go outside the room, lightly tapping the edge of a table.
    “Jun Shang!” Han Ye and Ying Mei quickly come over from the room next door, and kneel before him.
   Di Ming Jue looks incomparably cold and detached in the darkness, “Shi Lanling has a [Gold Silkworm Gu] inside her body.”
    “Gold Silkworm Gu?!” Han Ye and Ying Mei snap their heads up, looking shocked, “Isn’t that-, isn’t that the Poison Gu that only the sect members of Tian Yi Men could use?”
    Ying Mei frowns deeply, “Jun Shang, are you saying that there’s a person from Tian Yi Men in this Ghost Wind Valley? Why would someone from the Tian Yi Men come to the Yanwu Continent?”
    “Don’t… don’t tell me…” Han Ye clenches his teeth and speaks out, “Don’t tell me that someone from the Tian Yi Men has determined that the Shen Musician is in the Yanwu Continent? Even…”
    Someone might even be aware of Miss Jun’s identity as the Shen Musician heir.
    At that time, when Muyan triggered the Shen Musician inheritance, it alerted the Xiuxian Continent but Jun Shang went and covered it up.
    When Muyan reconstructed her Moon Spiritual Root however, the Spirit Clock in the Shen Musician ruins tolled by itself, without the help of any wind. In the end, it still attracted heavy attention from the Tian Yi Men, and all the sects on the Xiuxian Continent.
    No one knows more clearly than Di Ming Jue, how those old bastards on the Xiuxian Continent loathe the Sect of the Shen Musicians, the extent of their jealousy, and the depth of their… fear.
    Muyan is still so small and weak right now, but if those people were to know of her existence…
    Even Di Ming Jue might not be able to save her.
    The hand hanging on Di Ming Jue’s side slowly clenches tight, then loosens, “Once we go out of the Ghost Wind Valley, I will go back to the Xiuxian Continent.”
    “Jun Shang!” Han Ye anxiously says, “Your real body is currently staying on the Yanwu Continent. You won’t even have a tenth of your strength when you return to the Xiuxian Continent, if you go and handle the affairs related to the Shen Musicians, it would be too dangerous, why not…”
    “There’s no room for further discussion.” Di Ming Jue’’s gaze sweeps over to the inner room, the light in his eyes becoming gentle beyond words, “In any case, I will never allow anyone to harm Muyan.”
    “Ying Mei will come back to the Xiuxian Continent with me. Han Ye will stay here and protect Muyan and Xiao Bao.”

Chapter 499: You’re angry
 
    But she never thought that there will come a day, when she would be the one that everyone condemns.
 
    “Aaaargh–!!” with Shi Lanling covering her face, an insane screech madly rushes out, and gradually fades into the distance.
 
    After today, the Shi-xianzi that everyone had chased after is now completely pulled down from the altar.
 
    Everyone leaves laughing.
 
    The door slowly shuts, and the candle inside the room goes out, sinking it into an endless darkness and quiet.
 
    Muyan’s figure slowly withdraws from the space, and she quietly goes to the open window.
 
    Just as she’s about to jump out of the window and leave, a scorching breath suddenly wraps around her.
 
    An iron-like arm is placed across her waist, securely confining her.
 
    A man’s deep, low voice enters her ears, “Now that Muyan is here, how could you be so eager to leave so quickly?”
 
    Muyan’s breathing stutters, but her expression very quickly comes back to normal. She unhurriedly turns her body around.
 
    “When did Jun Shang discover that I’m here?”
 
    Di Ming Jue furrows his brows, displeasure evident in his eyes, “I told you to call me by name.”
 
    Muyan doesn’t want to fight him about this topic, so she readily follows the advice and calls out, “Di Ming Jue.”
 
    “Your breath was very well-hidden, I didn’t notice it at first. It wasn’t until Shi Lanling undressed that I sensed the the fluctuations from your breath.”
 
    Di Ming Jue gently strokes her hair, but Muyan moves her head to the side to avoid it.
 
    “This is a Pill that I refined, it could suppress the miasma of the Ghost Wind Valley.”
 
    Muyan doesn’t bother about Di Ming Jue’s surprised expression, as she spreads her hand out, three Elixirs appearing on the hollow of her palm, “I’ve come to give Pills to you, Ying Mei, and Han Ye, but then I thought that maybe you guys don’t need it at all.”
 
    “No, Ben Jun needs it.” Di Ming Jue’s countenance is tinged with indescribable gentleness, “As long as it’s something from Muyan, Ben Jun needs it.”
 
    Saying that, he goes directly to Muyan’s hand and swallows the Pill into his belly.
 
    The man’s warm lips touches the hollow of Muyan’s palm, and her heart couldn’t help but jump.
 
    She quickly takes her hand back, and places the other two Pills on the table, “If there’s nothing else, I’ll go back first.”
 
    After saying that, she pries Di Ming Jue’s arms to open, turning to leave.
 
    She has barely taken a step away from him, when Di Ming Jue suddenly pulls her back.
 
    “Muyan, you’re angry?” the man’s low voice sounds in her ears.
 
    Muyan starts, but soon shows a smile that isn’t a smile, “Why would I be angry?”
 
    “Or should I say, are you eating vinegar?”
 
    “Eat your big-head damn vinegar!” Muyan finally snaps angrily.
 
    A foot resolutely goes to kick the man, while her body thrashes like fish to struggle out of his embrace, and rapidly bounds to the door.
 
    As she’s about to go past the doorway,
 
    The door suddenly slams shut before her eyes.
 
    Following that, she is pressed against the closed door by a tall, warm body.
 
    Di Ming Jue’s handsome face is too close.
 
    A blazing flame seems to burn within his ice-blue irises, wanting to engulf her until there’s nothing left.
 
    His scorching breath puffs gently against her lips, on her face, making her entire being boil and churn.
 
    “Di Ming Jue, let go!”
 
    “No.” Di Min Jue leans down, slowly saying, “Muyan, I said, I’ll never let go of your hand in this lifetime.”
 
    Muyan sneers: “Because my body is useful? What Precelestial Saint Physique, it could make you rapidly…”
 
    Before she could finish her words, Di Ming Jue’s lips press down, completely swallowing up her voice.
 
    The man’s kiss is passionate and overbearing, but with indescribable pampering and indulgence towards her.

EMHS – CH498

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 498: Kicked out naked
 
    Shi Lanling’s heart burns hotter.
 
    Slowly, with an eager posture, she raises a hand and places it on her chest.
 
    She pulls the clothes off a little.
 
    Just until an alluring, snow-white bare flesh is revealed under the flickering candle light.
 
    “Di Jun, Lanling is ready for your picking now, doesn’t Di Jun want this?”
 
    She says the clingiest and most childish words in her softest and most gratifying voice, and she walks over towards Di Ming Jue.
 
    The man looks at her body without even the smallest fluctuation of emotion in his eyes.
 
    It’s like he’s looking at a dead thing, a pile of trash.
 
    Shi Lanling’s heart sinks down, then she tries tries harder to twist her body to move more invitingly, shedding off the small remainder of what she’s wearing.
 
    “Di Jun, allow Lanling to serve you!”
 
    In the darkness, Muyan’s expression turns a little bit colder.
 
    Her heart, which had already opened a little bit because of Di Ming Jue’s protection and company, shutters close once again at this moment.
 
    Like a thick layer of ice solidifying around it, it won’t open to anyone anymore.
 
    Only the strands and twists of pain, like knife wounds in her heart, are left as a reminder to her.
 
    Her core was so close to being moved by this man, almost moved to feel-
 
    Calm washes over Muyan’s mind.
 
    She ponders how she should quietly get away when, in a moment from now, the two would fall into passion.
 
    Just at this time however, she hears the sound of a loud crash.
 
    Muyan starts. Looking out through the small gap of the screen, she sees that of the two people that should’ve been intimately entangled by now-
 
    Only Di Ming Jue alone remains standing inside the room at this moment.
 
    And Shi Lanling is bodily flying out, breaking through the door, and heavily landing outside the room.
 
    The loud noise wakes up the guards and guests of the outer chambers.
 
    Everyone comes over by following the sounds, only to see Shi Lanling lying naked on the grass, without a stitch of clothing on her body, and befuddlement and incredulity on her face.
 
    “What’s going on?”
 
    “Ah–! T-th-this… isn’t this Shi-xianzi?”
 
    “Oh my, why is Shi-xianzi not wearing any clothes? And just now, I think she just flew out of that room, didn’t she?”
 
    Along with all sorts of voices entering her ears, there are eyes falling on her naked body – some of which express excitement, perhaps disgust, and possibly schadenfreude.
 
    Everything, all of it – they’re all making her brain roar inside, she couldn’t think.
 
    Why?
 
    Why did things turn this way?
 
    Wasn’t she just offering herself to Di Ming Jue?
 
    Wasn’t she about to succeed in seducing this man?
 
    How did she fall from heaven to hell in just the blink of an eye?
 
    “Jun Shang, what happened?” Han Ye and Ying Mei hurriedly rush over, and see Shi Lanling without any clothes and lying down at Di Ming Jue’s doorway. They both show disgusted expressions.
 
    “Why is it this woman again?” Han Ye unhappily says, “Shi-xianzi, don’t you want to keep some face? My family’s Jun Shang already said that he doesn’t fancy you, and more than that, our Jun Shang already has a lady. You’ve come running over and over again, offering to bed him, your face is rather too thick, isn’t it?”
 
    “Ah, I didn’t expect that the Shi-xianzi, who is lofty and unsullied like a green lotus on the outside, is actually so licentious in secret.”
 
    “Tsk, tsk, tsk. Offering herself to sleep with a man, but was kicked out instead. If this matter spreads out, I fear for Shi-xianzi’s reputation later on.”
 
    “What Shi-xianzi! Pah! Simply just a prostitute without any sense of shame!”
 
    Shi Lanling used to take advantage of her pure and noble identity to guide public opinion, and destroy many women that she found unpleasant to her eyes.
 
    She crowned almost every one of them were with the reputation of being shameless, licentious and lowly. Once their reputations were completely destroyed, they no longer had any strength to compete against her afterwards.

EMHS – CH497

Chapter 497: Devotion
 
    That is to say, Di Jun really doesn’t have his heart set on Jun Muyan.
 
    He just wants to use her, that’s all.
 
    Shi Lanling vigorously presses down the desire that’s rolling over and over in her heart, expressing more and more coquettish glances on her face.
 
    A few days ago, her skin was still filled with white white patches. 
 
    Now it has become fair and translucent, like the finest jade.
 
    But on careful inspection, you would be able to see that the skin is so thin, it seems like it could rupture at any second.
 
    The brightness and translucence, pureness and clarity – they’re somewhat unnatural.
 
    “For Di Jun to care about Jun Muyan this much, isn’t because she has the Precelestial Saint Physique, rarely seen in thousands of years?”
 
    “Be it in Dao Cultivation or Healing, a Yin and Yang Paired-cultivation with this kind of woman would be several times more effective.”
 
    “Even if Jun Muyan had already lost her innocence, no longer a pure Yin Physique, it’s still a very rare furnace in this world.”
 
    “Say, Di Jun, did Lanling say it right?”
 
    Di Ming Jue unhurriedly raises his head, a faint gleam in his eyes, “This is the extent of what you know?”
 
    Shi Lanling stares blankly, not understanding what Di Ming Jue means by that sentence.
 
    Soon after, the man’s low and cold voice comes through, “Perhaps, I should ask who imparted those words to you? And who planted the [Gold Silk Gu] into your body?”
 
    A change comes over Shi Lanling’s complexion, then she presses it down, determinedly saying: “Lanling is unable to make sense of what she heard, what is Di Jun talking about? On behalf of the Ghost City, Lanling hopes to cooperate with Di Jun…”
 
    “Ah–!”
 
    Her throat is clutched in a steel-like grasp, tightening up little by little.
 
    The air in her body is getting squeezed out bit by bit.
 
    Shi Lanling’s face goes green and purple, panic and dread filling up her eyes, “Di Jun, spare… spare me… it was the Ghost King… it was the Ghost King Liu Se, she made me… made me…”
 
    He throat is released from the stranglehold, and she gulps in large amounts of the icy air into it.
 
    Shi Lanling coughs violently.
 
    At this very moment, besides adoration, there’s a little more fear in her eyes as she looks at  Di Ming Jue.
 
    Trembling with fear and trepidation, she says: “Di Jun, it was the Ghost King Liu Se who made me come and find you, hoping that the Ghost City could work together with you. So long as you don’t stop or interfere with what’s about to happen next – then later, all of the resources in the Ghost City could be sent to you. Whatever you want to look for in the Yanwu Continent, Ghost City could try to find them for you.”
 
    “The Ghost King also guarantees, that as long as she sits on the Ghost Lord’s position, she pledges that she would be more deferential to you than Gu Yue. Even…”
 
    As she’s speaking, Shi Lanling has a faint blush on her face.
 
    She slowly reaches up, and removes the outer clothing on her body.
 
    Revealing a snowy jade-like shoulder, half-hiding her soft chest, as well as the graceful body under that thin, meager attire.
 
    “Even Lanling, if Di Jun wants it, Lanling is willing to present and offer my body to you.”
 
    “Even though Lanling doesn’t have the Precelestial Saint Physique, it’s also the millennium-rare Sky Yin Female Physique. Moreover, compared to that Jun Muyan, Lanling is still a virgin.”
 
    “If Di Jun wishes it, Lanling is willing to devote herself to you, even as a slave or a concubine, even as a furnace, as long as it’s for you, Di Jun, Lanling is willing.”
 
    Saying that, she shyly looks at Di Ming Jue with hope and expectation, her eyes brimming with sincerity and affection.
 
    The man sitting in front of her is like a god, set up on high, incomparably beautiful.
 
    Even in the Xiuzhen Continent, such a man is inevitably unsurpassed as well.
 
    This small, insignificant Yanwu Continent – how could it hold Shi Lanling’s ambition down?
 
    As long as she can devote herself to this kind of man, be it as a slave or a concubine, even as a furnace – so what?
 
    She can follow him and leave the Yanwu Continent, be respected and incomparable from then on.
 
    That could only be the life that belongs to her, Shi Lanling.
 
   Regarding her actions, she sees that the man doesn’t get angry, nor does he have any objections.

EMHS – CH496

Chapter 496: What are you planning
 
    Muyan hesitates for quite a while, but she nevertheless leaves her room noiselessly, making her way to the outer chambers.
 
    The sky is already completely dark at this time.
 
    She softly pushes open the door to a room, but the interior is covered in black and totally empty.
 
    Di Ming Jue isn’t in the room?
 
    Muyan slightly frowns.
 
    At this hour, where would Di Ming Jue be if he isn’t in his room?
 
    But since the person isn’t here, she has no reason to stop over.  She turns to go to the direction of Ying Mei and Han Ye’s room.
 
    As a matter of fact, she also knows the peculiarity of Di Ming Jue’s physique.
 
    Ghost Wind Valley’s Poison Smog, perhaps he simply doesn’t place it in his eyes.
 
    Before she could go out however,
 
    She suddenly hears the sounds of footsteps and speaking voices from outside the door.
 
    Upon hearing the familiar voice, Muyan halts her steps, and subconsciously ducks behind the screen.
 
    “Di Jun, don’t walk so fast. Lanling won’t be able to keep up with you.”
 
    The door is pushed open, and the candles are lit.
 
    Soon after, Shi Lanling’s voice could clearly be heard, seeming like her throat is pinched to be frail and childish.
 
    Muyan unconsciously clenches her fists, tightly pursing her lips into slits.
 
    Not because of the sound of Shi Lanling’s affectations.
 
    Rather, it’s because she hears another set of footsteps and breath pattern, those are– Di Ming Jue’s.
 
    In a split second, her form becomes faint.
 
    Her breath completely vanishing into the Space.
 
    Without energy fluctuations, without careful examination, nobody would be able to sense her presence at this moment.
 
    Muyan leans a little to the side, through the small gap of the ornately carved wooden screen-
 
    She could vaguely see the silhouette of a man and a woman.
 
    Di Ming Jue sits on the chair, slowly turning a teacup in his hands.
 
    Those handsome and noble features appear bright and dazzling under the candlelight, in a way that’s too eminent and distant to reach.
 
    And not so far away, Shi Lanling stands, in a daze as she stares at his face.
 
    Appearing as if she longs to come near, but afraid to do so.
 
    “Di Jun, the matter that Lanling had suggested to you earlier, what do you think of it?”
 
    Di Ming Jue regards the cup in his hand, his expression cold and detached. He doesn’t answer.
 
    But Shi Lanling seems to be completely ignorant of his indifference, as she still dazedly gazes at him, then says,
 
   “Di Jun, you’re not a person from the Yanwu Continent, are you perhaps from the Xiuzhen Continent that everyone years for? Everything in the the entire Yanwu Continent, be it people or objects, it’s only natural that they won’t enter your eyes, Di Jun.”
 
    She takes a step and then another, a little bit closer to Di Ming Jue.
 
    The power and pressure coming out of the man’s body is almost rendering her incapable of gasping for breath.
 
    But it makes her increasingly overwhelmed, obsessed and desirous: “For Di Jun to come to the Yanwu Continent, there must be something that you seek here. That Jun Muyan is but a mortal woman with a child, one who has long lost her purity. For Di Jun to lower your noble self to stay by her side, it must be because there’s something on that woman’s body that Di Jun has designs for?” 
 
    In an instant, her heart seems to constrict from a ruthless grip.
 
    Muyan unblinkingly fixes her attention to the man’s face.
 
    However, there’s not the slightest bit of change on the man’s expression.
    
    It’s as if he’s listening to an insignificant statement.
 
    Soon after, he indifferently looks at Shi Lanling, “Oh? In that case, do say, what is Ben Jun’s scheme?”
 
    Hearing Di Ming Jue’s question, Shi Lanling’s eyes immediately go bright.
 
    Ecstasy flits across her face.
 
    Liu Se is right. Such a powerful man wouldn’t want Jun Muyan, that broken shoes. Sure enough, it’s because he wants something from her body.
 
    In addition, she also knows that the bastard child isn’t Di Ming Jue’s.
 
    It was born from Jun Muyan’s illicit relations with an unknown wild man from long ago.

EMHS – ch482

Chapter 482: Best Friend
    Each and every one of them have reached the Earth Stage in their cultivation.
    But their eyes don’t have any trace of expression.
    Of their exposed flesh, there are even visible spots and areas of putrefaction.
    They appear ghastly beyond words.
    Gong Qianxue looks at these people, as well as the woman beside her, disgust and smugness intermingling in her eyes.
    However, as she turns towards the ugly woman beside her, she immediately puts on a look of gratitude and trust, “Sister Liu Se, I naturally have faith in your work. This batch of [Corpse Soldiers] that you’ve cultivated for me, their strength have now reached Earth Stage, solving quite a lot of trouble for me. Liu Se, thank you, you are my best friend!”
    Saying that, she directly grasps the woman’s hand.
    This woman is called Liu Se, a beautiful-sounding name, but her face looks unspeakably ugly.
    Even her hands are also wrinkly, bumpy and full of holes like a tree bark that that has been nibbled on by parasites, making people feel queasy.
    But when Gong Qianxue grasps it, there’s not the slightest bit of change on her face, but for the brimming cordiality.
    Liu Se’s unsightly face shows a hint of being emotionally moved.
    Ever since she’s turned into this damnable appearance, only Gong Qianxue has been willing to treat her as a friend, treat her as a normal person.
    That’s why, no matter what, she will definitely help Gong Qianxue.
    But Liu Se didn’t catch sight of it.
    As soon as she released her hand, that split second she turned around, Gong Qianxue immediately wipes her own hand furiously on her clothes.
    There’s an incomparably hateful and disgusted expression on her face.
    Still, thinking of Liu Se’s abilities, Gong Qianxue bears with the disgust.
    Liu Se, this woman, she’s still useful.
    Not to mention the Corpse Soldiers that she refines are practically invincible, who knows how much trouble it has helped her resolve.
    For example, the clan here that is now dead.
    They’ve been guarding a gold mine, and she wanted to make them take it out, but they actually wouldn’t agree.
    Haha, since they’re unable to tell good from bad, then let them bury corpses within the gold mine forever.
    Of course, the most important thing is Liu Se’s identity!
    Huang Yao’s Ghost King!
    That’s right, even Jian Feng and the Heavenly Road Sect are unaware that Gong Qianxue has already turned over the control of Huang Yao’s Ghost City into Liu Se’s hands.
    Today, in the Ghost City of Jing Cheng, Xuan Ji is about to cover the sky with a hand .
    Just remove the obstruction that is the Ghost Lord Gu Yue.
    When that moment comes, she would have completely excavated the entire Ghost City.
    All the resources within it, everything will be hers.
    The light in Gong Qianxue’s eyes are burning brightly from anticipation, “Right, Liu Se-sister, last time, didn’t you say that Xuan Ji had mentioned a way to be able to control the Ghost Lord? Has he yet to send back any information about how things are going about that matter?”
    “Rest assured, Princess. Xuan Ji had come with news a few days ago, saying that he has made an agreement with the Ghost City’s Shi-xianzi, Shi Lanling, making her help refine a certain Elixir. Before that Elixir, even the Ghost Lord Gu Yue would be completely without the power to fight back. Without a doubt, Ghost Lord Gu Yue shall die.”
    As she speaks of Xuan Ji, an odd radiance flashes through Liu Se’s eyes, it seems like longing, like bashfulness.
    Gong Qianxue chuckles: “Brother Xuan Ji and Liu Se-sister are truly a pair made in heaven!”
    “Back then, big brother Xuan Ji had fallen to the Fog Forest and he was dying. Luckily, big sister Liu Se had saved him. Since then, big brother Xuan Ji had given his heart to you, sister – what an inspiring story. It’s really enviable.
    As she speaks, she watches Liu Se’s face, and feels a bout of nausea.
    Liu Se, this idiot, she’s really stupid to the extreme.
    She actually truly believes that Xuan Ji likes her.
    In Xuan Ji’s eyes, his disgust towards her is clear for anyone with eyes.

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’.

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 479: You look really good like this
 
    That’s why, as soon as she took the Pill, she immediately began to operate her Cultivation Method in silence.
 
   As expected, her Spiritual is finally starting to come back by threads and strands at this moment.
 
    Ying Mei thinks of that brief moment humiliation and despair from before, and her mood goes into an unspeakable and almost irrepressible rage.
 
    She lowers her head to look at Xiao Bao, her eyes filling up with gratitude: “Little Master, thank you. You and the Miss have saved me once again.”
 
    Xiao Bao shakes his head like a tiny grownup, “Don’t mention it. Big sister Ying Mei is a good person, Xiao Bao doesn’t want you to die.”
 
    Ying Mei slowly kneels down before Xiao Bao, “From now on, and into the future, Ying Mei has determined to pledge my life, vowing loyalty and devotion, to the Lady and the Little Master. If I do anything to the contrary, may Heavenly Punishment strike me, and take me from the world of the living!”
 
    As soon as she lowers her voice, a red light flashes through her whole body, bursting out then slowly fading away.
 
    Han Ye is a bit wide-eyed.
 
    The oath that Ying Mei had uttered is the Polar Domain’s most stringent [Core Binding Covenant]. Once you speak the vows, you will really have a fate more miserable than death if you go against the covenant.
 
    Ying Mei, she… similar towards Jun Shang, she really intends to vow loyalty and devotion to Miss Jun and Xiao Bao, pledging her life and looking upon them as her Masters.
 
    The Lady and the Little Master are indeed worthy of such respect and loyalty.
 
    Han Ye only hesitates for a moment, before he also slowly kneels down, “I, Han Ye, swear, that from this moment on and into the future, I pledge my life, vowing loyalty and devotion, to the Lady and the Little Master. Should there be any violation to this oath, Heaven and Earth shall not condone!”
 
    There’s also a flash of red light, which slowly disappears as well.
 
    Xiao Bao blinks, his grave and stern little face carries a rare bit of bewilderment.
 
    With the same resolute expression on their faces, the two individuals declared the Heart Binding Covenant, and they raised themselves from the floor.
 
    Ying Mei’s body sways, and she almost sinks back to her knees.
 
    “Little Shadow!” Han Ye quickly goes to support her with his hand.
    
    His hand accidentally touches a soft bulge, and Han Ye almost couldn’t stop himself from jumping where he stands.
 
    Soon after, his panicked state, as well as the fear and hatred, slowly clears up.
 
    And the voice that has been hovering inside his brain from earlier now cries louder and stronger, becoming clearer.
 
    Han Ye’s gaze couldn’t help but turn towards the girl that he’s half-carrying in his arms.
 
    Heatedly flushed to the point where water almost drips out, “Little Shadow, so, so you’re actually a girl.”
 
    When he first heard Xiao Bao call Ying Mei ‘big sister’, he just thought that Xiao Bao is too young and got Ying Mei’s sex wrong.
 
     Now he knows that the true idiot is in fact he himself.
 
     Han Ye stupidly looks at Ying Mei’s face, there’s practically waves and ripples in his eyes.
 
    Ying Mei could no longer maintain her cold and detached expression.
 
    Wisps of red clouds rise up on her cheeks.
 
    In humiliated rage, she says: “Haven’t you seen enough?!”
 
    “Not enough!” Han Ye blurts out, “Even a lifetime wouldn’t be enough. Little Shadow, you really look good like this.”
 
    Even if Ying Mei’s clothes are already replaced with the common men’s clothes.
 
    Still, there are no bindings wrapping around her chest.
 
    Neither is her hair tied up.
 
    As a whole, her pure and splendid beauty couldn’t be concealed at all.
 
    Han Ye can only feel his heart hammering nonstop.
 
    These days, every day and every night, he’s been finding it hard to sleep peacefully, thinking that he likes his closest brother in arms.
 
    He was under the impression that his thoughts were despicable, sullying Ying Mei.
 
    As it turns out, Ying Mei is actually a girl.
 
    Realizing this, the joy and sweetness in his heart is incessantly bubbling over like a hot spring.
 
    Making him reveal a dumb and silly smiling expression.
 
    Ying Mei is really embarrassed and angry of his attentions, and on top of that, there’re Xiao Bao’s and the fat rabbit’s meaningful glances sent their way.
 
    In the end, she couldn’t help but punch Han Ye’s belly, saying through clenched teeth: “Shut up. Completely forget what you’ve seen today, even more, you’re not allowed to speak of it, you saw nothing! Otherwise, don’t blame me for being discourteous!”
