Chapter 360: A-a-a…Aunt
 
    Maybe she’s that “Miss” that the bad woman was talking about.
 
    Even though the fat rabbit is scared of the female devil, but in the end, that devil is still the Little Master’s mother – the Little Master’s favorite person.
 
    How can the rabbit let her get bullied so easily?
 
    That’s why today, one look at Shi Lanling and the rabbit directly pounces on her. Avenge her first, discuss it later!
 
    In any case, the Little Master is here. It’s not afraid of anything!
 
    Xiao Bao looks down at the smug fat rabbit.
 
    He hits its plump butt with his tiny hand.
 
    Xiao Bao is a good child.
 
    Niangqin said that if you did something wrong, you should apologize.
 
    Even though the rabbit was the one who injured someone, but who made the fat rabbit his pet?
 
    Niangqin said that he is responsible for the pet that he’s raising.
 
    Therefore, after spanking the fat rabbit, Xiao Bao carries it by the scruff, and walks to face Shi Lanling.
 
    “Sorry.” the cold and crisp voice starts, “My pet has injured you. I can give you a bottle of medicine, it will…”
 
    “After wounding my lady, you think that a bottle of medicine is enough?!!” Rui Zhu screams incredulously, “If you’re sensible, quickly hand over the little beast you’re holding. Otherwise, don’t blame us for being impolite.”
 
    Unlike Rui Zhu, Shi Lanling doesn’t forget herself and make a big fuss.
 
    But the expression in her eyes is very cold.
 
    It’s as if her gaze is dripping with poison as it falls on the fat rabbit, wishing she could immediately skin it and tear its bones.
 
    “Little gongzi is young and thoughtless, letting your pet injure me. I won’t bother about you, but since this pet has wounded me, you must hand it over for me to deal with it.”
 
    Xiao Bao frowns and raises his head towards Shi Lanling, “Auntie, how do you want to deal with it?”
 
    A-a-a… auntie?!!
 
    “You… what did you call me?!!” Shi Lanling raises her voice, unable to keep it down. She simply couldn’t believe her own ears.
 
    Xiao Bao lifts up his brows, his expression still indifferent, “Auntie, is there a problem?”
 
    Xiao Bao very firmly keeps his mother’s words in mind.
 
    Niangqin said that if he sees a good-looking girl, he could call her ‘big sister’.
 
    If he sees a good-looking girl that’s older than niangqin, he should call her miss.
 
    These two women in front of him are older than his mother, they don’t look pretty, and the breath from their bodies is unlikable.
 
    They’re more like the nagging aunts that the people from the Ink Camp are really annoyed with.
 
    As a result, he completely doesn’t see a problem in calling this woman before him “auntie”!
 
    Shi Lanling takes a deep breath, and takes another deep breath.
 
    Over and over again, she’s convincing herself to not care about this child.
 
    But the anger in her eyes is making it so that she could no longer maintain the appearance of a noble and virtuous fairy. 
 
    Xiao Bao could see that Shi Lanling isn’t saying anything.
 
    He feels that he should express his sincerity in apologizing.
 
    So he takes out a bottle of medicine from his chest pocket, and gives it to Shi Lanling.
 
    This medicine is also something that Muyan had refined. If you place it in the Ghost City, or at the Junji Drugstore, it could naturally be sold at a sky-high price.
 
    Giving it free of charge to Shi Lanling right now, Xiao Bao thinks that the sincerity in his apology is already quite enough.
 
    Shi Lanling takes the medicine, but she doesn’t apply it to her wounds.
 
    Instead, she gives it a contemptuous look and raises her hand, directly smashing the porcelain bottle to the ground.
 
    Rui Zhu sneers: “I’ll have you know that in the Yanwu Continent, my lady is the topmost apothecary and alchemist. Do you think a mere bottle of draught would quell my lady’s anger? Boy, are you dreaming?”
 
    Shi Lanling’s expression is icily arrogant as she towers over and looks down on Xiao Bao, “I will say it one more time. Give me the beast in your hands, and I won’t bother about you.”
 
    Xiao Bao fixedly stares at the smashed porcelain bottle.

Chapter 359: Bah! It’s definitely not a rabbit!
    Rui Zhu looks up to see a fat, snow-white rabbit doing a somersault in the air, then dropping to the ground.
    On it’s fluffy face, there’s a pair of tiny mung bean eyes that are coldly watching Shi Lanling.
    It’s clearly just a small, non-threatening animal… but to be stared at by such eyes, there’s an indescribable feeling that could make one’s hair stand on end.
    “Shi Xianzi, what happened?”
    The commotion at this side has attracted the guards stationed at the Di Yuan’s entrance.
    Seeing the wound on Shi Lanling’s face, the leader lets out a cry of surprise, “Shi Xianzi, your face!”
    He could see that Shi Lanling’s white left cheek has been scratched, and left with three gashes.
    Although these three wounds aren’t deep, but they’re dripping with blood – from her temples, down to the edge of her lips.
    It makes Shi Lanling’s originally refined and elegant face become somewhat sinister.
    Shi Lanling takes a deep breath, and slowly steadies her emotions.
    She points to the fat rabbit and says: “Catch that beast for me!”
    The guards stare blankly.
    Then they hear Rui Zhu shout from the sidelines: “That’s the animal that scratched my lady’s face. What are you people still dawdling for, hurry up and catch it!”
    This time, the guards no longer hesitate, and directly pounce over to the fat rabbit.
    They’re completely unaware of what happened in the Di Yuan’s inner courtyard.
    They still think that Shi Lanling really is a special guest that Di Jun cares about.
    Now that Shi Xianzi has been harmed near the entrance of Di Yuan, they wouldn’t be able to handle it if Di Jun blames them for not helping.
    The fat rabbit sees about a dozen fiendish men charging over.
    It makes a prompt decision, turning it’s butt around, and jumps.
    Its fat body draws a smooth arc in the air, and ultimately falls into a very small embrace.
    Within those small arms, it turns its head.
    The fat rabbit contemptuously looks at all the people rushing over–
    It’s now a rabbit that has the Little Master’s support! These people want to bully the rabbit? No way!
    A bah! It’s definitely not a rabbit!
    The fat rabbit dismissively turns back and rolls its eyes. It must have followed the female devil for too long.
    It almost forgot that it’s real body isn’t some stupid rabbit, but a…
    ……
    The guards didn’t expect that, after working together to catch a rabbit, they would still turn up empty-handed.
    Their gazes simultaneously turn to the direction of where the rabbit has jumped to.
    Soon after, each and every one of them stop to stare blankly.
    They see that the one holding the rabbit is a small boy, only about four or five years old.
    It’s just that this small boy is really too beautiful.
    Like a sprite that has fallen into the mortal realm, making people wish they could send all the best treasures of the world before him.
    But when the guards meet the little boy’s eyes, they inexplicably shudder.
    Ice-blue irises, like solid frost, indifferent as they look over in a sideways glance.
    Clearly so young, but he makes people want to serve him.
    The one standing the closest even has a strange, terrified feeling – like Jun Shang is watching him.
    “Li… Little Gongzi, please give us the rabbit in your hands.”
    With great difficulty, the guards gradually come back to their senses. One of them speaks, still somewhat trembling with fear, “This rabbit has injured my Di Yuan’s precious guest. We need to give justice to this noble guest.”
    Xiao Bao lifts his eyes to the speaking guard, then turns his sight to fall on Shi Lanling’s face.
    The three wounds from the fat rabbit’s scratch are very obvious, and bloody.
    The rabbit also follows to look, and sees its masterpiece. It’s very pleased.
    Wagging its stubby tail, its small mung bean eyes are sparkling.
    Humph, humph. Rabbit smelled it. That woman has the same despicable scent, like that other bad woman who destroyed the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower.
    Those two are definitely from the same flock.

EMHS – ch358

Chapter 358: What ‘moved’, it all flies up in the clouds
    With a lowered voice: “If you don’t meditate, the Nine-Holed Golden Dan’s efficacy would be squandered in vain.”
    His tone is brimming with pampering and indulgence, like Muyan has just been acting spoiled and making trouble for no reason.
    Muyan could also feel the alternating heat and coldness rolling over and over in her Qi Sea.
    She quickly sits down in a cross-legged position.
    The Mysterious Energy within her body runs wildly, flowing through her limbs and bones.
    The Mysterious Energy all over Muyan’s body increases, along with its strength.
    A faint mellifluous music drifts within the air.
    The tip of Di Ming Jue’s brows twitch up. His eyes that have always been cold and unruffled amidst chaos, now reveal astonishment.
    That’s because, as this music rings in his ears-
    He unexpectedly feels a power within his body, so tremendous that he himself couldn’t grasp it – just a faint echo.
    But how is this possible?
    While he’s bewildered, the sound of the zither becomes louder and louder, and soon after – it gradually dwindles and fades away.
    Sitting cross-legged, Muyan slowly opens her eyes.
    Her expression and appearance hasn’t changed. Even that powerful Internal Force from her whole body converges completely.
    But as those rippling, exquisite peach blossom eyes open, they have a frightening brightness.
    Like the most magnificent of gems that were originally covered by a thin layer of dust.
    But now that the dust has been washed off, a resplendent brilliance is revealed as a result.
    Di Ming Jue has a scarily burning gaze as he looks at Muyan.
    His girl is so alluring, a radiance of ten thousand fathoms.
    Now, she’s become even more captivating.
    Di Ming Jue wishes he could hide her away. Only he can behold, only he can touch.
    Muyan takes a deep breath, and stands up from the ground. There’s a light smile on her face.
    The bottleneck that had shackled her for so long is finally broken.
    Her current cultivation has already reached high-level Precelestial.
    One can say that in the entire Yanwu Continent, it would be rare to find a worthy match for her.
    All of this is thanks to Di Ming Jue.
    Forcing her to stay here and plant the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower – it has been all for her.
    Handing over the Spirit Flowers for Shi Lanling to refine, has also been for her.
    Muyan raises her head to look at the man’s countenance, so handsome that it’s dazzling. She quietly says: “Di Ming Jue, thank you!”
    Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me.
    How can I, Jun Muyan, let you devote so much for me?
    Di Ming Jue steps forward and embraces Muyan by her waist. He leans down and slowly says: “Are you quite moved by what Ben Jun has done for you?”
    Without waiting for Muyan’s response, he continues: “If that’s the case, then give your heart to me.”
    Muyan: “…”
    Hehe, what ‘moved’ feelings she had, it all flies up in the clouds!
    ===
    “Miss, are we leaving just like this? Let that woman seduce Di Jun?”
    Within the Di Yuan, Rui Zhu had been suppressed by Di Ming Jue’s powerful Qi field, which rendered her completely unable to speak or move.
    Coming out of the Residence, she can’t help but be jealous and upset.
    Just what is that Jun Muyan supposed to be – isn’t she just a newly emerging third-rate doctor?
    What about her could compare to Rui Zhu’s lady?
    If the one favored by Di Jun’s had been her Miss, then she can naturally follow by her lady’s side, and look at that man’s god-like appearance every day.
    Thinking of this, Rui Zhu’s cheeks become a little red, and her eyes also reveal an ambiguous look.
    Shi Lanling sends her a cold glance, about to shout abuse.
    Suddenly, there’s a flash of white.
    Rui Zhu and Shi Lanling shriek at the same time.
    Shi Lanling feels a sharp pain on her left cheek, and a heavy force hits her shoulder.
    She stumbles for a few steps, and steadies her footing with some difficulty. Her hand goes to feel her face.
    “Aaah–!!” a scream comes out from Shi Lanling’s mouth. Looking at the blood on her hand, her expression is alarmed and angry, “My face! My face! Who was it!”

Chapter 357: Acting like a rogue
    She watches as Di Ming Jue places the Pill in his mouth, and after just a few breaths-
    He suddenly grabs Muyan by the waist, and he brings her into his arms.  Then he kisses those petal-soft lips.
    There’s minute changes on Muyan’s expression, and she’s about to struggle.
    What is this man up to? Playing rogue in front of so many people?
    But the next moment, she feels a cool breath pouring into her body through their connected lips and tongues.
    Shi Lanling goes stiff from head to toe, staring stock-still at the scene before her eyes.
    She is not an idiot who couldn’t feel what’s going on. This isn’t an ordinary kiss.
    This is Di Ming Jue using himself to draw out the impurities within the Pill’s potency. Then after cleaning it, he passes the purest medicinal power to Muyan.
    One can say that the Nine-Holed Golden Dan is a precious Pill that’s difficult to find in the world.
    But even if you can refine it, the Pill still has some flaws.
    And yet, Di Ming Jue spent countless amounts of manpower and resources for Muyan, as well as cultivated the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower and the other auxiliary herbs.
    Even putting forward a high price to ask her to refine a Nine-Holed Golden Dan.
    Now, he’s still drawing out the Pill’s impurities while disregarding possible harms to himself.
    Just to… just to let Jun Muyan genuinely absorb the medicinal power of the Nine-Holed Golden Dan?!
    Why?!
    Why is this man taking the trouble and spending such a great deal of effort, even coming to this point – all for an insignificant, lowly slave girl?!
    Why is Di Ming Jue not directing this inclination towards her?
    How is Jun Muyan better than her?!
    At the side, Han Ye takes a look at Shi Lanling’s unsightly complexion, and his mood is extremely good.
    Anyway, his face is still all smiles: “Shi Xianzi, you see, our Jun Shang and the future madam have such a loving affection, as to act as though there were nobody else present. But an outsider like you looking from the side is not proper anyhow. Shi Xianzi, please!”
    This is the third time that Han Ye is making her leave.
    And this time, Shi Lanling and Rui Zhu no longer have any reason to stay.
    Even Shi Lanling couldn’t wait for another minute.
    The scene that happened before her eyes is making her so embarrassed, she wishes she could find a hole to burrow into.
    Under Han Ye’s directions, she leaves Di Yuan like a walking corpse.
    How bashful and how expectant she was when she arrived-
    that’s how indignant and jealous she is as she leaves.
    Then, this jealousy slowly transforms into a deep-rooted grudge.
    If it wasn’t for Jun Muyan, Di Jun would’ve surely taken notice of her.
    If it wasn’t for Jun Muyan, she wouldn’t have received such a great humiliation today.
    Isn’t she just a very minor, third-rate doctor?
    Actually making vain attempts to fight against Shi Lanling, that’s simply a pipe dream.
    Shi Lanling’s lucid and elegant face slowly twist into a sinister and vicious expression.
    But it’s only for an instant, before it all disperses and changes back into a prideful look once again.
    ……
    On another hand, Han Ye is very conscientiously clearing up all the people on the scene.
    The Nine-Holed Golden Dan’s potency is purified little by little, and goes into Muyan bit by bit.
    After about a quarter of an hour, the medicinal power has been completely passed into Muyan.
    Muyan feels that her own Dantian is rolling with a melting heat.
    She puts her hands out, wanting to move away from Di Ming Jue.
    Who knew that the man would hold her even tighter and kiss her even deeper.
    It’s only when the skin on Muyan’s entire body begins to burn, that Di Ming Jue reluctantly releases the red and swollen little mouth that he’s kissing.
    Muyan fiercely glares at this shameless man.
    Even when giving her medicine, this scoundrel still seizes the opportunity to take advantage of her.
    But Muyan doesn’t know that her cheeks are flushed red, and her eyes seem to have a touch of flirtatiousness as she glares at the other. Not only is it without any lethality, it’s indescribably alluring instead.
    Di Ming Jue’s eyes are dark, but in the end, he still suppresses the impulse to arrest the other into his embrace once more.

EMHS – ch356

Chapter 356: How Jun Muyan Measures Up
    Shi Lanling’s complexion bursts into green then white.
    Through the vestibule, her gaze rigidly falls on Jun Muyan’s face, jealousy and unwillingness filling her eyes.
    It turns out that this woman isn’t a servant, but a doctor, the one Qing-er mentioned to have seduced Di Ming Jue.
    Enchantress Jun Muyan!
    Humph, so what if she’s a senior doctor?
    Not an alchemist, not capable of refining Pills. A mere doctor – no matter how powerful she is, she can only treat a disease to save a patient.
    What about Shi Lanling, who could refine Pills that are unparalleled in the world.
    Not only can she treat illnesses, she can even help practitioners advance in their cultivation.
    What’s more, she, Shi Lanling, is already at the middle of Heaven Stage at her young age.
    Be it her appearance, strength, or status – none of them would lose to this woman.
    Right now, Di Ming Jue is tenderly taking good care of her, only because she looks pretty. He’s treating her like a plaything.
    How could a plaything be a match to a man as eminent as Di Ming Jue?
    One day, Jun Muyan will be worn-out and discarded.
    One day, Di Jun will realize that only Shi Lanling would suit him, and could match with him.
    How about Jun Muyan?
    Can she refine the Nine-Holed Golden Dan that Di Jun needs the most?
    At the thought of the Nine-Holed Golden Dan, Shi Lanling’s eyes light up once again.
    Han Ye sees that she’s not going away no matter what, so he’s just about to go ahead and make her leave.
    But Shi Lanling suddenly steps forward, and speaks in a soft and concerned voice: “Di Jun, Lanling suddenly remembers. There’s something that I forgot to tell you about the Nine-Holed Golden Dan.”
    At this time, DI Ming Jue and Muyan have also finished eating their meal.
    Di Ming Jue uses a cloth to personally wipe Muyan’s mouth and hands, then he helps her stand up.
    Hearing what she said, his eyes can’t help but turn towards Shi Lanling.
    Shi Lanling meets the man’s exquisite pair of clear cold eyes, and his incomparably handsome face – she has a bit of a shortness of breath all of a sudden.
    Her voice also gets somewhat of a stutter, “Di Jun, the Nine-Holed Golden Dan’s potency is very tyrannical. There’s a risk of injury, even for a practitioner at the Precelestial stage. Please be careful when you take it – it would be best have Lanling by your side to attend upon you. If by any chance, there’s some unforeseen event… as an alchemist and a doctor, Lanling could also provide some proper assistance.”
    Hearing that, Di Ming Jue raises his brows and releases Muyan’s hand.
    He turns his wrist, and the box that was just given to him by Shi Lanling appears on his palms.
    Opening the small brocade box, the Pill inside faintly emits a clean and fresh medicinal scent.
    It resembles the fragrance of the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, but it seems to be much stronger than the flowers.
    Under everyone’s gaze, Di Ming Jue picks up the Pill and places it in his mouth.
    An excited light immediately burst forth within Shi Lanling’s eyes.
    Haha… she really guessed it right.
    What Di Jun really needs is a woman that is useful to him.
    Even if Jun Muyan’s appearance has been lovelier, what about it?
    Can she refine Pills like Shi Lanling? Can she help Di Jun have a breakthrough in his cultivation?
    Empty save for her appearance, how can a woman without a single good point contend against her?
    As she’s thinking that, Shi Lanling lifts her skirt to go and walk forward.
    Han Ye holds out a hand to block her approach.
    But Shi Lanling sends him a cold and severe look, “Did you not see that Di Jun has already taken the Nine-Holed Golden Dan? If I don’t keep watch by his side, and the Pill’s potency backlashes, can you take that responsibility?”
    Han Ye doesn’t relent, not letting her pass. Instead, he puts on a fake smile as he looks at her.
    That smile is truly sarcastic beyond words, there’s even pity.
    Shi Lanling furrows her brows, just on the point of chiding the other.
    Suddenly, the scene that takes place right in front of her makes her eyes snap wide open, and her mouth gape. She’s simply couldn’t believe her own eyes.

EMHS – ch355

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 355: Mistress
    The man narrows his eyes, leans a little closer to Muyan, and drawls: “You’re actually not picky on whatever inferior, unclean, and unsuitable thing it is – and dare to put it in your mouth?”
    A pause, and he coldly adds another sentence, “Could it be that the food Ben Jun had personally prepared still couldn’t compare to these?”
    As he says this last bit, it can be said that the man is speaking through gritted teeth.
    Muyan can only have a clueless face.
    Wait, wait!
    Since when did Yanwu Continent’s priceless medicinal food become something that’s ‘inferior, unclean, and unsuitable’?
    And Jun Shang-daren, what about you isn’t good enough compared to other people? Are you comparing against a woman’s culinary skills?
    What about your honor?
    But the unhappy Jun Shang doesn’t have any of that honor-thing.
    He barely waits for Muyan’s reaction, and just directly waves a hand. He has people take out the medicinal food that Shi Lanling brought, handing them down to the servants at the outer courtyard of Di Yuan.
    As for himself, he unrelentingly takes Muyan to sit down by the dining table, and carries on with his daily task of feeding her.
    And probably because Di Ming Jue has been routinely feeding her these past few days-
    Muyan eats the exquisite breakfast, completely without any awkwardness.
    So much so that in her heart, faintly, there’s a sweet sense of happiness that she herself doesn’t realize.
    As for where this kind of sweet joy has come from, Muyan doesn’t dare to examine it deeper.
……
    But Shi Lanling, who has been struck again and again, could no longer control the ashamed and resentful feeling rising up in her heart.
    The whole person can’t help but tremble.
    All her life, she has never… had never received such humiliation!
    Who is this woman?
    Why had she snatched Shi Lanling’s spotlight, and stolen her man?
    Just and insignificant servant, why?!!
    “Shi Xianzi, please go back! Di Yuan doesn’t entertain outsiders.” Han Ye is neither amiable nor gentle as he repeats the notice to leave.
    There’s already a trace of impatience in his voice.
    He just saw this woman push Little Shadow aside.
    Humph, what a show! Not even worthy of carrying Miss Jun’s shoes.
    And she still has the nerve to have ideas about their Jun Shang, just save your face!
    “Who is she?” She Lanling doesn’t move, but she forces down the hatred that’s violently surging up in her heart, and prattles, “Just who is this woman? Isn’t she a servant of Di Yuan? How could a mere servant…”
    “Servant?” Han Ye hisses, interrupting Shi Lanling’s words. His eyes are filled with ridicule, “I’m afraid Shi Xianzi has gotten it wrong.”
    “Not only is Miss Jun not a servant, but she’s the most distinguished guest of our Di Yuan, it’s future Mistress on top of that. Anyone who dares to insult Miss Jun is insulting Di Yuan, and is insulting Jun Shang. Before opening one’s mouth, it’s best that Shi Xianzi clearly think about it – in the end, what should be said and what should not be said!”
    “Mistress–?!!” Shi Lanling suddenly raises her voice into a sharp screech.
    But she immediately realizes her loss of self-control, and she forcefully calms herself down, “Miss Jun, which Miss Jun? How come I’ve never heard of…”
    Suddenly, Shi Lanling’s voice stops, and her pupils slightly contract.
    “Don’t tell me, that she’s the one who’s currently under the limelight in Tianyuan City, the Enchantress Jun Muyan?!”
    That legendary musician who has appearance that can ruin and overturn the state, the one who can revive dead flesh and bones, and can forcibly retrieve a human life from the underworld’s grasp?!
    Han Ye promptly lifts his chin, his face all but saying ‘therefore you must feel honored’, “Correct.”
    Even though he knows that Miss Jun isn’t simple-
    But he didn’t expect that in just a few months, not only did Miss Jun cause a sensation in Xia’an, she’s now come to Tianyuan City and directly prodded through it still.
    Hehe, isn’t that truly worthy of being the woman that Jun Shang has fallen for?

EMHS – ch354

Chapter 354: Not allowed to eat
    Her upturned nose is slightly puckered, her normally sparkling eyes are watery. Indeed, she looks indescribably pitiful.
    Di Ming Jue’s chest heats up, and he really wants to knead her in his arms, and fuss over her.
    His hand clumsily and awkwardly tap the tip of her red nose, rubbing it a little, “Why so careless?”
    Muyan’s nose is all scrunched up in anger!
    This scoundrel, he’s clearly the one who pulled her, making her bump into him.
    Now he’s still blaming her for being careless?
    But without waiting for her to retort, Di Ming Jue is already tugging her firmly towards the dining table.
    His voice is as cold as before, and his expression is still without any significant change – but his countenance has a trace of tenderness that could melt people.
    “Don’t you know what time it is already? You still haven’t had breakfast when the sun has already reached the third bamboo pole*, do you want to starve to death?
  • Late in the morning, 7-9am or 9-11am. It’s not specific, because the important point is that someone woke up late, or was tardy in something
    Muyan raises her head and looks at the sky.
    Jun Shang’s ability of speaking blindly when his eyes are open is getting stronger and stronger.
    It’s definitely not past chen-shi(7-9am) yet, how has the sun reached the third pole?
    Muyan strokes her nose, and wears a smile that isn’t a smile as she sweeps a glance over Shi Lanling, “Aren’t you afraid that this would bother your rendezvous with the beauty?”
    At the side, it’s as if Shi Lanling is looking at a ghost as she unblinkingly stares at Muyan and Di Ming Jue.
    Isn’t this woman a servant? Isn’t she a slave?
    Why is it, that the Di Jun who is so callous towards her is so different towards this woman?
    She looks at Muyan’s little hand that is grasped tightly within Di Ming Jue’s palm.
    Shi Lanling could no longer maintain the calmness and unworldly refinement within her eyes.
    Her intense resentment is so close to becoming a burning jealousy, and surge out from her eyes.
    She can’t even come within a meter of Di Ming Jue.
    But this woman, this inferior and lowly woman could unexpectedly get that close to Di Jun.
    She… for what reason?
    Rui Zhu is equally dumbfounded.
    She had just half-completed her words to laud her Miss, and is now at a loss of what to do. She doesn’t know whether or not she should continue.
    “Jun Shang, this medicinal cuisine is really… really priceless, people who seek it couldn’t have it, but Miss has has been busy all night in order to personally cook these for you…”
    Once these words are out, it immediately pulls Di Ming Jue and Muyan’s attention.
    That’s because the medicinal cuisine made by Shi Lanling is really too aromatic, and seriously very well-known.
    In Muyan’s past life, she’s heard about the preciousness and rarity of Shi Xianzi’s medicinal food.
    Back then, even Gong Qianxue had an extremely high regard for it, yet she never had the chance to taste it.
     She can’t help but smell it in, stretching her neck to take a peep inside the food box.
    But she has barely extended her head out when a large palm detains her chin.
    Her attention is forcibly drawn back to the man.
    “You really want to eat it?” the man’s deep and cold voice very slowly asks.
    Muyan nods without any hesitation.
    Shi Lanling and Rui Zhu look like they had just started to relax, when they suddenly go stiff once again.
    The corners of Di Ming Jue’s mouth rise into a shallow curve.
    His appearance is extremely magnificent, suffocatingly handsome.
    Right now, as he’s smiling like this, he becomes even more resplendent like a blazing sun, dazzling like a firework. He could steal people’s souls.
    However, Muyan’s distraction only lasts for a moment.
    As she hears the man use a cold and decisive voice to say: “You’re not allowed to eat it!”
    Shi Lanling’s originally stiff expression immediately turns into delight, her eyes joyful as they turn to look at Di Ming Jue.
    As expected, Di Jun also has feelings for her.
    He really wouldn’t let a lowly slave girl sully the medicinal cuisine that she had made with her own hands.
    Today is destined to be the day that Shi Lanling’s face would ring from slaps.
    Di Ming Jue’s next sentence directly pushes the elated Shi Lanling right into the dust.
