Chapter 347: No one else can~
 
    Soon after, there’s a loud ‘bang’!
 
    Before She Lanling could react, a large billowing wave rushes directly at her.
 
    The whole person turns over and flies a few meters away, heavily crashing on the desk and chairs.
 
    “Miss, Miss, what happened?”
 
    The maid outside hears the commotion, and comes in. She sees that Shi Lanling had fallen to the floor, hair disheveled, and covered in soot. The maid jumps in fright.
 
    “Miss, what happened to you? What just happened?”
 
    Shi Lanling pushes away the maid that has come to help her up, and she dashes to the Dan Furnace at lightning speed.
 
    She opens the furnace cover, only to discover that the the Pills, that were nearly condensed and formed just a moment ago-
 
    Now, two of them have completely broken down into black dregs.
 
    Only one is emitting a silver glow, sitting alone within the Pill Furnace.
 
    Shi Lanling tightly knits her brows, profound discontentment flashing within her eyes.
 
    Nine-Holed Golden Dan! This is the NIne-Holed Golden Dan!
 
    She originally thought that if she could successfully refine three, she can perhaps leave one for herself.
 
    That way, she would certainly have a breakthrough with her bottleneck.
 
    But now, there were three Dark Clouds Spirit Flower Cores, but she was ultimately only able to refine one Nine-Holed Golden Dan.
 
    And she has deal, promising to give this Pill to Di Jun.
 
    “Miss, you’re already very awesome.” the maid at the side sees Shi Lanling looking unhappy and discontented, and promptly smiles and lauds the other’s accomplishments, “This slave dares to say that in the Yanwu Continent, no one could refine the Nine-Holed Golden Dan, except for you, Miss!”
 
    It’s only natural that nobody else could refine this Pill. That’s because, in the entire Yanwu Continent, not a single Dark Clouds Spirit Flower could be found.
 
    But hearing the maid Rui Zhu’s words, Shi Lanling’s miserable pale face still reveals a trace of pride.
 
    That’s right!
 
    In the entire Yanwu Continent, who else except her could successfully refine this Nine-Holed Golden Dan?
 
    Even Jian Feng of the Heavenly Road Sect couldn’t do it.
 
    If such news were to be known outside, then Shi Lanling’s reputation could even overshadow Jian Feng’s title of the number one alchemy master.
 
    Rui Zhu sees that Shi Lanling’s complexion is a lot better, and she quickly continues to say: “Besides, that Lord can even take out three Dark Clouds Spirit Flower to give to you, Miss. Maybe this Nine-Holed Golden Dan is refined for you.”
 
    “Even if this isn’t for you initially, I believe that as long as Miss shows interest in having it, there’s no man in this world that can refuse you.”
 
    Shi Lanling sends a sidelong glance towards her maid, “You can talk drivel.”
 
    “How can these words be drivel?” Rui Zhu makes a big fuss, “Miss, why don’t you go and take a look: in this Yanwu Continent, in terms of beauty, talent, cultivation, and level of alchemy – just how many people can contend against you?”
 
    “Even that Jing Cheng Country’s brilliant and famous Princess Qianxue, compared to you, she is but the light of a firefly next to the luminous splendor of the moon, completely without the qualifications to be mentioned in the same breath as you. It’s just that Miss, you aren’t as high-profile as Princess Qianxue.”
 
    “Otherwise, when would it be Gong Qianxue’s turn to have the title of Yanwu Continent’s number one genius?”
 
    Shi Lanling smooths her lips, revealing a faint and reserved smile.
 
    “Go and draw water for me. I’m going to wash myself and change clothes.”
 
    Rui Zhu immediately proceeds to do so.
 
    After a while, Shi Lanling’s dirty clothes have been changed, and the dirt on her face has also been washed away, revealing a lucid and elegant countenance.
 
    Only her complexion appears pale due to the excessive consumption of her Internal Force.
 
    Rui Zhu hands over the small brocade box of the Nine-Holed Golden Dan, “Miss, now that the Pill has been refined, do you want this slave to go and call Han Ye to come over and take it?”
 
    Before he left, Han Ye told Shi Lanling that once the alchemy succeeds, she should immediately send someone to go and notify them in the Di Yuan*, and he will immediately come and fetch the Nine-Holed Golden Dan.

Chapter 346: Irresistible
    Her wrist is detained by this man, and she actually can’t struggle free at all.
    Han Ye has a somewhat absent-minded expression, and his fingers subconsciously give a light rub on Ying Mei’s wrist.
    He only thinks that the skin on this fine slender wrist is astonishingly, satiny soft.
    How can a man’s skin be this white, this soft?
    Furthermore, there’s that sensation when Ying Mei bumped against his hand just a moment ago…
    “Han Ye, if you won’t unhand me, I’ll be impolite!” Ying Mei flies into a rage from humiliation, angrily shouting. She sends a strike towards Han Ye.
    Han Ye abruptly comes back to himself, but it’s already too late to dodge.
    His left eye immediately receives a solid punch.
    “Ow–!” He produces a miserable scream, falling a few steps backwards.
    He covers his eyeball with a hand, plaintively saying: “Little Shadow, you look prettier than a girl, but how can your temperament be so savage!”
    Ying Mei hides the hand that Han Ye held, putting it behind her as it somewhat burns.
    Coldly: “If you compare me to a girl again in the future, I’ll make you turn into a real girl.”
    Saying that, her line of sight briefly sweeps past the lower half of Han Ye’s body.
    Han Ye immediately feels his balls tense, his face going white from fear.
    “It, it’s just a joke. Little Shadow, you don’t have to be so serious.”
    “But you look really good wearing that… did Miss Jun change you into it?”
    “Miss Jun is really talented, what did she put in your chest? How can it feel so real?”
    As he says that, Han Ye is very curious so he reaches out to grope Ying Mei’s chest.
    Snap–!!
    Ying Mei ruthlessly slaps Han Ye’s perverted hand away.
    An unsheathed sword appears on her hand, and with an unrestrained aura of death, “You don’t want this hand anymore?”
    Done saying that, she doesn’t bother with him any longer, as her form brushes over and she leaves in a hurry.
    She can’t go on with this get-up for another moment.
    Especially in front of Han Ye.
    Ying Mei’s figure quickly disappears, leaving Han Ye by himself as he stays on his spot, wearing a foolish expression.
    His hands clench and loosen, it’s as if his fingertips and arm could still feel the lingering tactile sensation from just now.
    Satiny, soft.
    Bad!
    Han Ye covers his chest, a panicked expression on his face.
    He, what happened to him?
    He knows perfectly well that it’s Little Shadow, fully aware that Little Shadow is a man.
    But why is it that when he thinks of Little Shadow’s face, he feels as if there’s a fire burning in his body?
    There’s some kind of a strange tide of emotion that surges up violently from within him.
    He can’t hold it back.
    ===
    Lanling Residence, in the alchemy room.
    Shi Lanling is sitting in front of the Dan furnace by herself.
    There’s a dim purple glow around the furnace, and one could faintly see a rising fire inside it.
    If anyone were to see this Dan furnace, they would surely cry out in surprise.
    That’s because this purple-gold furnace is one of the most precious of it’s kind in the Yanwu Continent.
    The only one that could match is value is probably the black-gold Panlong furnace that belongs to the Heavenly Road Sect’s alchemy master, Jian Feng.
    Shi Lanling’s Internal Force is rapidly surging, driving the flames inside the Purple Gold furnace to jump.
    The fire burns even brighter.
    The entire room fills up with the cool fragrance that belongs to the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower.
    There’s also three silver-white Pills within the Dan Furnace that are in the slow process of forming.
    Shi Lanling’s forehead is covered in fine sweat, her complexion is deathly pale.
    But watching these three Pills slowly solidify and turn into Nine-Holed Golden Dans, there’s pride and excitement from the bottom of her heart.
    According to the ancient records, the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is rare, and it’s difficult to refine it into a Nine-Holed Golden Dan.
    But what is it to Shi Lanling’s eyes, isn’t she still capable of refining three at once?
    However, just as Shi Lanling is feeling proud of herself-
    The Purple Gold furnace suddenly begins to shudder violently.

Chapter 345: Actually wearing women’s clothes
    Her figure isn’t petite like other women’s, she’s tall and slender instead.
    But those perfectly straight legs, the generous contours of her undulating chest – they fill her up with an alluring glamour.
    Han Ye can’t help but gape, unable to say a word with his dry mouth and tongue.
    But unexpectedly, this beautiful woman takes one look at him, and she immediately shows an expression of familiarity and anxiousness, “Han Ye, Miss Jun is gone!”
    Han Ye? This… this beauty called him Han Ye?
    And why does her voice sound so familiar?
    Clear, cold, and with a touch of youthfulness.
    Wait, wait! Why does this beauty’s face look so familiar?
    “Y-y-you! You’re… Little Shadow?!”
    Hearing something wrong with Han Ye’s tone,
    Ying Mei stares blankly, then she bows her head to look at her own body.
    The first thing that enters her eyes is the curves of her heaving chest, then the short coat and skirt that’s meant for women.
    There’s also her gently fluttering, wind-borne long hair that’s draped over her shoulders and scattered behind her.
    Ying Mei snaps her eyes wide open.
    She… she’s actually wearing women’s clothing!
    Not only that, she’s also seen by Han Ye!!
    How could she be in women’s clothes?
    Right, Miss Jun!
    When Miss Jun left, she switched their clothes.
    “Li… Little Shadow, you… it can’t be that you’re a woman?”
    Han Ye stares straight at Ying Mei, gulping down his spit, and gulping again.
    Ying Mei’s disposition has always been cold, and her way of doing things could even be fiercer and more decisive than a man’s.
    Moreover, her every movement doesn’t contain a thread or a hair of femininity.
    So even though Ying Mei looks delicate and beautiful, even more beautiful than a lot of the women in the Polar Domain, Han Ye never suspected that she could be a woman.
    But the girl before his eyes is really too beautiful, too alluring.
    The long hair from her temples is like a dark cloud drifting across her snow-white face.
    Skirt of thin silk flutter about her lithe body.
    There’s truly not even the tiniest bit of a dissonant feeling to say that Ying Mei is a girl.
    Hearing that, Ying Mei is alarmed, and a flustered expression flashes through her eyes, but it disappears just as fast.
    Her complexion is clear and indifferent, a biting cold expression in her eyes. With a lowered voice: “If you say another line of rubbish, don’t blame me for being impolite!”
    As she says that, she releases an ice-cold killing intent.
    Contrary to what one might expect, Han Ye isn’t afraid of Ying Mei’s murderous intent.
    But looking at that frosty and charming face, the other is obviously stirred into real anger.
    He promptly restrains his mood, and laughingly says: “Little Shadow, don’t be angry. I was just joking, that’s all. But your body…”
    Thinking about it, he would also get angry if he’s seen as a woman, definitely.
    Ying Mei knits her brows in annoyance, but anxiousness soon settles on her face, “It was Miss Jun, she switched our clothes when she left. I must go at once and bring her back. Otherwise, Jun Shang would know and there would be trouble.”
    After saying that, she’s about to rush past Han Ye.
    Han Ye quickly reaches out a hand to block her way.
    As a result, one not knowing how the other would move,
    Ying Mei’s chest just happens to bump into Han Ye’s arm.
    The soft sensation comes through, making Han Ye’s entire body go stiff, his eyes open wide into circles.
    “Step aside!!” Ying Mei’s angry, pretty face goes very red, and a palm goes to slap Han Ye.
    “Wait! Wait!” Han Ye repeatedly begs for mercy, and he reaches out to grab Ying Mei’s slim wrist, hurriedly saying, “Miss Jun didn’t leave, she’s with Jun Shang right now! You mustn’t bother them, or else…”
    He would definitely have a very ugly death, like Han Ye.
    “Is that true?”
    “Absolutely!” Han Ye is just short of making an oath with his finger to the skies, “I saw it with my own eyes, how could it still be false?”
    ……
    The atmosphere goes quiet for an instant.
    “You… still not letting go!” Ying Mei’s face turns red, and she forcefully tries to struggle free.
    However, she discovers that the normally sloppy Han Ye, the one who lets her bully him as she pleases – he’s suddenly become very strong.

Chapter 344: Conceal you
    Di Ming Jue doesn’t reply to her words. Instead, he grabs her small hand and spreads it open.
    A moment later, a reddish brown ring sits on the hollow of Muyan’s palm.
    There’s a bit of disdain in the man’s voice, “The Storage Rings in this continent are too crude, they’re almost worthless. If you like, you can take this and just play with it.”
    Muyan injects it with her Internal Force to probe, and her head immediately feels a bit dizzy.
    Back in her previous life, Gong Qianxue also had a storage ring.
    But that storage ring only had the size of a few dozens of square meters.
    It was such a treasure to Gong Qianxue.
    It’s status could even equal to that of the sacred beast that Gong Qianxue made a contract with.
    But on her hand is a space that spans several hundreds of square meters. And when she injects her Internal Force into it, the space is extremely stable – even if she stores draught ingredients inside, the space could keep the herbs fresh.
    However, Di Ming Jue is adapting this attitude that says ‘It’s better to get rid of this wretched thing, and giving it out is simply throwing Ben Jun’s face away.”
    It really renders Muyan speechless.
    “Cough…” Muyan gives the storage ring back, “I also have a Storage Space, there’s no need for this. You can take it back.”
    As a matter of fact, she always takes the Tian Mo Qin out of thin air, so the people in this courtyard already knows that she has a Space.
    They just don’t think that it would be such an extraordinary one.
    Di Ming Jue doesn’t take the storage ring back, but he puts a chain through it, hanging it around Muyan’s neck: “In the future, Ben Jun will give you a better one. But for now, it would be best if you take this with you.”
    At least, it could conceal you a bit.
    Muyan is taken aback. She raises her head to meet the man’s eyes that are as deep as an abyss of ocean, and her heart trembles.
    Why does it feel like Di Ming Jue knows something?
    He shouldn’t be able to guess the origin of the Tian Mo Qin and her identity as a Shen Musician, right?
    After all, Baili Yinlou had said that the Shen Musicians have been gone from this world for a thousand years already.
    In all the Three Realms, it could be said that the Shen Musician is also a taboo existence.
    As matters stand, there can’t possibly be anyone who knows of her identity as a Shen Musician, right?
    ===
    With lingering fears, Han Ye frantically flees from the hot springs.
    He runs straight for a good long while, only stopping to catch his breath.
    His thoughts are still filled with paranoia and shock.
    Remembering that originally, Jun Shang absolutely won’t allow people near him, much less when he bathes.
    Even if it’s Elder Chang, the one who has the closest relationship with Jun Shang.
    But now?
    Jun Shang actually pulled Miss Muyan into the pool to bath, like a pair of mandarin ducks.
    Even when Jun Shang’s clothes are all…
    Han Ye rubs his nose, having a bit of a dizzy spell.
    If he tells this story to the Little Shadow, or maybe make those guys in the Polar Domain listen,
    Won’t their chins drop down from the shock?
    Oh, right, where’s Little Shadow?
    Han Ye seems to remember him saying that he’s going to bring food for Miss Muyan, but he didn’t see the other come back ever since.
    Could it be that the he’s been in Miss Muyan’s room all along?
    Thinking of this, Han Ye promptly makes his way towards Muyan’s room.
    With Little Shadow’s stubborn little temper, if he doesn’t see Miss Muyan return, it’s possible that he might just keep on waiting.
    Just as he reached Muyan’s door, and is about to enter,
    He hears the door slam open from the inside.
    A woman bursts out, wearing a long skirt, her stature tall and slender, hair scattered loose.
    Seeing this woman, Han Ye only feels an explosion going off in his brain.
    Something seems to hammer against his heart, making it thump and skip in such a rapid speed, it seems like its about to pop out of his mouth.
    The woman before his eyes has a clear and cold visage, but her features are mysterious and distinct, giving the whole person a touch of loveliness.

EMHS – ch343

Chapter 343: Won’t let go
 
    “Muyan…” closely behind her, Di Ming Jue slowly enunciates by her ear, “You’re still saying that you’re not eating vinegar?”
 
    “Apart from missing Xiao Bao, are you doing everything you can to leave here because you’re angry that I sent the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers to Shi Lanling?”
 
    Back when he first met Muyan, our Jun Shang-daren was indeed, definitely a novice without the smallest bit of experience in romance.
 
    But ever since he determined that he’s going to chase Muyan and obtain her heart-
 
    Di Ming Jue made Han Ye look for various kinds of literature, manuscripts, all for the purpose getting a little bit of insight on how to make Muyan happy, how to move her heart, how to make her… fall in love with him.
 
    Of course, Jun Shang-daren will absolutely, unconditionally never say anything about these embarrassing matters.
 
    But the result of doing those things is also quite remarkable.
 
    From the moment they met, with Di Ming Jue’s ignorance, Muyan had been making him go around in circles.
 
    Until now, Muyan could come up with countless means to somewhat keep on warding him off.
 
    “You’re thinking too much, why would I want to eat your vinegar? Let go!”
 
    Di Ming Jue tightens his hold instead, his voice getting even darker, “I won’t! All this life, I’ll never let go…”
 
    Splash–!
 
    Water flies about in all directions!
 
    Muyan turns her hand over and shoves it back against Di Ming Jue, stunning him for a moment.
 
    She leaps up into the air.
 
    Before she could get out of the pool however,
 
    The man grabs her ankle, and forcibly pulls her back.
 
    This time, Muyan finds herself pressed against the pool’s edge.
 
    Both her hands are held over her head.
 
    Di Ming Jue looms while looking down at her, a minute redness in his eyes.
 
    Droplets of water trickle down from his hair, dripping on Muyan’s body, and on her face.
 
    Getting looked at with such a passionate expression, Muyan has an inexplicable sense of restlessness. She feels her mouth go dry as her blood begins to boil.
 
    Before the pair could say or do anything however,
 
    The hot spring’s gate suddenly swings open.
 
    “Jun Shang, this subordinate has already delivered the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower to Shi Lanling, she promised to…”
 
    Han Ye’s voice comes to a grinding halt.
 
    Seeing Di Ming Jue’s murderous look, he trembles from the chill.
 
    At this very moment, Han Ye is thinking that he really wants to slap himself to death.
 
    Letting his hand just open the gate!
 
    Letting his mouth go on to report the progress in alchemy!
 
    Letting him just come and disturb Jun Shang and Miss Muyan…
 
     “I… I didn’t see anything, I didn’t say anything…”
 
    Jun Shang, spare me ah! Wuu, whimper
 
    Han Ye slams the door shut once again, running away and vanishing like a wisp of smoke.
 
    And Muyan, who has already become clear-headed at this time, curls her lips up, “Jun Shang-daren, don’t you want to know what your special friend Shi Xianzi had promised you?”
 
    “I don’t!” Di Ming Jue hisses through gritted teeth.
 
    Muyan smiles even deeper, “But I want to know!”
 
    Di Ming Jue leans down and gives her lips a gentle bite, “You will know soon enough. Also, Ben Jun doesn’t have a special friend. There’s only you… my future wife.”
 
    “Ow–!” Muyan ruthlessly kicks out.
 
    This scoundrel is a dog! He actually bit her.
 
    “If you move again, I won’t bear with it, and I’ll turn you into my wife right now.” the fiery breath puffing by Muyan’s ears seems to sigh with boundless longing.
 
    Muyan’s movements goes into a full stop.
 
    And Di Ming Jue doesn’t do anything further.
 
    Instead, he just carries her out to the pool’s edge with him.
 
    Water splashes about in all directions, and the fog curls around them.
 
    As the splashing water hits the ground, Di Ming Jue has already put on his clothes.
 
    Muyan quirks up a brow, “Storage Space?”
 
    She has guessed that Di Ming Jue should have a Storage Space, or else he wouldn’t be able to take things out of thin air all the time.
 
    But she has never observed it as directly as this time.
 
    After all, a Storage Space is very rare in the Yanwu Continent.
 
 
 
 

EMHS – ch342

Chapter 342: Marrying into your family is also fine
 
    Muyan is stumped for words, and a strange sweetness inexplicably wells up in her heart.
 
    With these words, Di Ming Jue is practically telling her clearly –  that to him, she is different and no one compares to her.
 
    Wait a second!
 
    Now isn’t the time to secretly be happy about these subtle and ineffable matters. The most important thing right now, is that she needs to escape from this place and go see her baby.
 
    Springing up into a leap, Muyan gets out of the hot spring.
 
    She stands at the edge of the pool and looks at Di Ming Jue’s appearance, which is still somewhat twisted because of the pain from just a moment ago. She can’t help but twitch her lips up in schadenfreude.
 
    “Jun Shang, just continue taking a nice bath here, I’ll be leaving first.”
 
    Saying that, her figure flashes towards the exit, as fast as lightning.
 
    This hot spring is located at the southernmost side of the courtyard, and it has a wooden gate that separates it from the outside world.
 
    Just as Muyan opens the door, just as she’s about to escape,
 
    She suddenly feels something tighten around her waist, and her entire person rises up and flies backwards.
 
    She doesn’t get the time to get a clear look on what’s wrapping around her waist, when she sees the flash of a silvery whip dart before her eyes, and the open wooden gate closes with a bang.
 
    And from midair, Muyan’s body falls straight down.
 
    Right below her is the hot spring.
 
    But as she braces herself to fall into the water, then cut a sorry figure… it doesn’t happen.
 
    Instead, she is gathered into a scorching embrace.
 
    The man’s lowered, angry voice rings in her ears, “Where do you think you’re going, dressed like this?”
 
    Right now, although Muyan has clothes on,
 
    They’re completely drenched, completely exposing the curves of her body.
 
    Her hair bun has also come undone because of the commotion just now, and the messy long hair is draped from over her shoulders to her back. It makes the young woman all the more alluring and enchanting, like the most beautiful sprite that emerged from water.
 
    If such a Muyan leaves this courtyard, and gets seen by the men outside…
 
    As soon as he thinks of this scenario, Di Ming Jue wishes he could thoroughly gouge out the eyes of those men from his imagination!
 
    “You hate staying by my side this much?”
 
    To date, why has he become familiar with how this woman is always trying to escape from his side, by a thousand ways and a hundred plans?
 
    Muyan feels herself firmly imprisoned within the man’s embrace.
 
    Through the thin drenched clothes, she can even feel the heat and explosive power coming from the man’s skin.
 
    She struggles, wanting to break free, but she gets held even closer instead.
 
    Muyan has no alternative but to put on a bold face and say: “Di Ming Jue, you said that you’d let me go as long as I cultivate the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower. We’re just strangers that have met by chance, you shouldn’t…”
 
    Di Ming Jue coldly huffs, “Strangers that have met by chance could also bind their lives and death to each other*. You are destined to be Ben Jun’s wife.”
 
  • Expression: mutual loyalty and devotion of the man and the woman, according to their vows.
 
    Muyan clenches her teeth, “Who’s your wife? Stop being so shameless, when did I say that I’m going to marry you?”
 
    “You don’t want to get married?”
 
    “I don’t!”
 
    Di Ming Jue has an indifferent expression: “Oh, then Ben Jun marrying into your family is also fine.”
 
  • Whenever marriage is mentioned about a woman, it’s worded like ‘she will enter into his family’, so there’s a different term if it’s a man entering into the woman’s family.
 
    Muyan: “…”
 
    Which deity wants to marry in!
 
    Di Ming Jue, do you know what you’re talking about?
 
    Jun Shang-daren, when all is said and done, do you still want to keep your face?!
 
    Muyan takes in a deep breath, and then another deep breath: “Di Ming Jue, just what do you see in me?”
 
    “With your eligibility, what sort of woman can’t you have? Why should you get involved with me, someone who had been in a relationship and has a child from it?”
 
    “Didn’t you send your Spirit Flower to that Shi-something-fairy? Since you’re willing to give even the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower to her, that Shi Lanling’s place in your heart shouldn’t be low. Wouldn’t it be better for you to go find her, and then tie the knot with each other?”
 
    Hearing Muyan mention her ‘ex-husband’, Di Ming Jue’s heart sinks down to the valley floor.
 
    The hope and expectations in his eyes completely changes into pain and jealousy.
 
    But the more he listens, the more the depression between his brows dissipates.
 
    In the end, the corners of his mouth even curves up into an elusive smile.

EMHS – ch341

Chapter 341: Scrub your back, then scrub it
    “Come here and scrub my back.”
    The man’s voice becomes even more husky, more languid, like a feather burrowing itself her chest.
    Muyan can’t help but raise her eyes to look, and hot blood almost spurts out of her nose.
    This… this image is really too scandalous!
    She sees the man lazily leaning against the edge of the pool.
    His long, ink-black hair is draped in front of him, covering up his chest but also making it faintly discernible.
    Nevertheless, he reveals honey-colored skin and the sensual straight lines of his spine, which aren’t submerged under the water.
    Muyan gulps, and her line of sight is uncontrollably drawn to the man’s face.
    Di Ming Jue’s countenance is too beautiful, extremely magnificent.
    Sword-like brows and eyes as bright as the stars, straight nose and thin lips – features without an inch of imperfection. Combined together, they’re even more beautiful than a celestial’s.
    On normal days, the breath from his entire body is unspeakably cold and unapproachable.
    Aloof and remote, people wouldn’t dare to go near and profane.
    At this moment, Di Ming Jue has taken off all of that coldness and indifference, and worn a thread of heart-fluttering, soul-stirring evil seductiveness.
    This guy! No matter men or women!
    If they see this scene, they wouldn’t be able to bear it!
    Di Ming Jue suddenly lifts up his eyes, and a corner of his mouth slightly twitches up, “What are you still dawdling for? Still not coming over to rub Ben Jun’s back?”
    Muyan abruptly comes to her senses.
    Those charmed, wild and fanciful thoughts just a moment ago – they all change into an anger that is making her grind her teeth.
    Humph, scrub your back, then I’ll scrub your back!
    I hope this man enjoys it well.
    Muyan conveniently picks up a towel at her side and dampens it a bit. She then uses it to rub Di Ming Jue’s back.
    She quietly operates her Mysterious Energy, than even an ordinary towel could make crackling sounds like wires breaking.
    Even if you use it to rub against a piece of granite, this kind of strength would also be able to slough off layers on that granite.
    But what makes Muyan dumbfounded-
    No matter how much strength she uses, Di Ming Jue’s back is still as smooth and alluring as before.
    There’s not even a sliver of a mark left behind.
    Argh! Is this still human?
    What is this scoundrel’s skin made of?
    Curiosity in her heart, Muyan can’t help but reach out her hand, and she uses her fingers to scratch on that smooth, warm skin.
    In a split second, Di Ming Jue’s body shudders out of his control.
    Before Muyan could come up with a reaction, she only finds that the sky is spinning and the earth is going round.
    She’s being pulled down by the other.
    Splash–!
    A great amount of hot water surges up and splashes down, pelting down on her head and covering her face.
    Cough, cough, cough…” With a lot of difficulty, Muyan breaks out of the water, only to meet the man’s red eyes.
    What was once an ice-cold blue is now completely blazing with desire.
    “Muyan, do you know when a woman could scratch a man’s back like this?”
    Muyan is startled, somewhat flustered and scorched by the flame in the man’s eyes, making her want to run away.
    Just as she starts to do so however, the man’s lips is already coming down ruthlessly.
    Hands firmly bind her into his embrace, like he can’t wait to swallow her down into his belly right away.
    His husky voice is densely laced with anticipation, uttering on and off by her ears, “Only when… in our… candlelit bridal room at night… Muyan, do you… want to try it now?”
    “Muyan… Muyan… Muyan… Yanyan…”
    Wait, wait!
    From her chaotic state of mind, Muyan suddenly comes back to her senses, bending her knee and driving it up.
    Di Ming Jue grunts, and he has no choice but to release her.
    Even if his cultivation was higher, and his defenses made of copper walls and iron bastions, he still couldn’t resist this kind of pain.
    “Cough, cough…” Muyan furiously glares at him, cursing as she retreats to the other side of the pond, “You knew!”
    Di Ming Jue coldly grunts: “Do you think that if I didn’t know it’s you, Ben Jun would just let anyone come near me? And even let them stay by my side as I bathe?”
