Chapter 452: The most embarrassing thing
 
    Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to heal her face within a quarter of an hour.
 
    But so what if it’s very potent – in the end, isn’t it just a draught?
 
    Have these people gone mad?
 
    Not pursuing her, the fairy who can refine Elixirs – and unexpectedly going after someone who can only refine draughts?
 
    What Philter of Barrier Breaking, what godly draughts… can it even be mentioned in the same breath as the [Spirit and Foundation Strengthening Pill] that she has refined?
 
    Shi Lanling grits her teeth. She suddenly leans her head towards Rui Zhu to say a few words.
 
    Rui Zhu promptly clears her throat, and speaks in a loud voice: “Keh, isn’t it just a draught? What’s there to fight over and scramble for?”
 
    “Next month, Shi-xianzi’s Elixirs will be sold in Wangjiang Ghost City at seventy percent of its price.”
 
    With that, sure enough, the originally noisy atmosphere in the room goes quiet and still.
 
    Rui Zhu arrogantly raises her chin, then she waits for those people to be shocked, cheer excitedly, and go wild with joy.
 
    It should be known that Shi Lanling’s Elixirs in the Ghost City had always been expensive and without a market.
 
    There’s no lack of people who want to buy, but the price had always been too high.
 
    Thirty percent off, this is something that has never happened before.
 
    But a breath has passed… ten breaths has passed… a hundred breaths… the place is still extremely quiet, cold and indifferent.
 
    Magistrate Liu is flabbergasted, curiously sweeping his gaze over Shi Lanling and Rui Zhu. 
 
    Then he abruptly turns his head back, and continues to hold on to Muyan’s skirt, crying, “Miss Jun, can’t you help this dying old man! The drug ingredients that you want, our Ghost City will give them all to you, okay? If you feel that’s still not enough, this old man will give you double! Just sign this contract!”
 
    The other Magistrates and Ghost Envoys also look at Muyan with fervent eyes.
 
    Though there’s resentment and gloominess in some people’s eyes, regretting that they’ve stood on the wrong side earlier-
 
    They think that if those special grade draughts could be sold in Wangjiang’s Ghost City, they themselves would inevitably receive some benefits, so they suddenly become eager as well.
 
    Others give Muyan a deep bow, asking her to forgive them.
 
    Rui Zhu never expected, that after thinking that she has declared some serious news, there would be this kind of reaction.
 
    Her small face flushes red.
 
    She looks towards Shi Lanling at her side. Even through the veil, she could make out the other’s malevolently twisted face.
 
    What’s the most embarrassing thing in life?
 
    It’s not when someone refutes your words and humiliates you – but it’s when you believe that you’re infallible and you’re the focus of the crowd, not expecting that after you speak, you’ll be treated as air, and not a single person is attaching any importance to you.
 
    Even Xu Fu looks like his intestines are all twisted green now.
 
    If he can return to before, he’ll definitely come up with a completely different choice.
 
    On her sides, both of Shi Lanling’s hands are firmly grasped into fists.
 
    Her two eyes have already turned red, tenaciously glaring at Muyan, who’s at the center of the crowd.
 
    This bitch, this Jun Muyan, every time she appears, she will make Shi Lanling lose face.
 
    She wants Jun Muyan dead! Be sure to make her lose all standing and reputation, and die without a burial site!
 
    Shi Lanling couldn’t stay in this room for even a moment longer, so with large strides she makes her way to leave.
 
    But the doorway is obstructed by the people impeding Muyan.
 
    As Shi Lanling squeezes through them, it’s unavoidable that someone knocked the veil from her face.
 
    The cloth falls down, revealing the white spots that have grown all over her face.
 
    “Ah, what’s that? Why is it so awful? Is it like vitiligo?”
 
    “How did Shi-xianzi become… become this way? Isn’t she an amazing Master Apothecary and Alchemist? Why can’t she even cure her own face?”

EMHS – ch451

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 451: She wants to respect the aged! Tend to the young!
    Magistrate Liu’s old face wants to cry but it can’t, and his completely bereft hand is itching to grab his own white beard and yank it down, “Miss Jun, you are the Shenshu of the entire Ghost City, how can you be so partial and focus on Xia’an alone? In the heart of our Ghost City here in Wangjiang, it’s reverence for you is also like an unending and unbroken torrential river!”
    If by making a terrible scene, he can make this ancestor change her decision, Magistrate Liu could absolutely do that right now.
    “Oh, speaking of which,” Muyan takes out the Shenshu token from her chest pocket, and casually tosses it to Magistrate Liu. Her face is filled with disdain, “I thought that Ghost City’s Shenshu would be treated with the highest priority, and I didn’t expect that it would actually be just a heap of junk. It can’t even let me buy some herbs. Since it’s so useless, and it’s a nuisance being a Shenshu, I don’t want it.”
    After that, she then glances to the side, at Xu Fu, “Oh right, Magistrate Xu. Just a moment ago, didn’t you want to examine the authenticity of my Shenshu token? Now that the token has already been returned to your Ghost City, if you guys want to examine it, just go ahead!”
    Xu Fu dumbly stands where he is, the whole person has gone rigid.
    Moreover, that crowd of Magistrates and Ghost Envoys behind Xu Fu have their complexions burst into green and white, really wishing that they could just faint then and there.
    Jun Muyan is unexpectedly… not merely a Shenshu?
    She’s also that godly apothecary who can refine the Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking?!
    Xu Fu feels his vision go dark, there’s a roaring in his brain, and the blood all over his body goes cold.
    He… what the hell did he just do?
    Did he just offend the apothecary who could refine the Precelestial Philter?
    At this time, Magistrate Liu had also finally realized that something unpleasant had happened here.
    He’s irritated as he pulls someone to ask about the matter’s cause and effect.
    He then listens, that in order to please Shi Lanling, Xu Fu gave Shi Lanling all the drug ingredients that he originally promised to sell to Muyan.
    After completely offending Muyan, Magistrate Liu coughs out a mouthful of old blood in his anger, and he almost passes out.
    “Xu Fu!! You pighead, I’m going to kill you!!”
    WIth a single leg, he kicks Xu Fu several times to send him flying.
    As Muyan is about to leave, Magistrate Xu scuttles to get in front of her, and he kneels down with a thud. He reaches out to grab Muyan’s skirt.
    “Miss Jun, Shenshu-daren, please be magnanimous, a person of great moral stature does not remember the offenses committed by one of low moral stature. Please don’t bother about those few absolutely disgraceful things.”
    “Our Ghost City here in Wangjiang really, truly needs your special grade draughts. Also, your Philter of Barrier Breaking, please be magnanimous and give it to me! Otherwise, this old man will have no thought for tea nor rice, and it probably won’t take several days before I breath my last.”
    Muyan: “……”
    Indeed, she’s struck dumb by the scene before her eyes.
    She’s never seen anyone without skin nor face such as this.
    If it was someone younger, she would have already kicked him flying by now.
    But as it happens, the one pulling her skirt and wailing towards her, throwing a tantrum and acting shamelessly, is an old man who is old enough to be her grandfather.
    Muyan takes a deep breath, and then another. As Di Ming Jue tries to go forward and kick the other, she even stiffly pulls him back.
    She wants to respect the aged! Care for the young!
    Don’t be too violent! Don’t be too violent!
    …….
    By any means, Shi Lanling never expected that there would actually be such a turn of events.
    Just a moment ago, Jun Muyan was clearly about to be driven away without the least bit of dignity. But an old man suddenly rushes in, so revering towards her, even treating her like a treasure as he urges her to stay.
    Shi Lanling has long known that Jun Muyan can refine draughts, and that they are also very potent.

Chapter 450: Ancestor, I will kneel down to you
    The clapper-boards had been struck at that moment, and Wangjiang’s Ghost City directly took it.
    While they still hadn’t settled on a suitable price, Old Liu had already been clutching that Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking, holding it like a precious golden baby that he would hate to let go and part with – not even for a moment.
    Just as Old Tao has finished speaking, the smile still spread across his face, he discovers that the surrounding atmosphere is somewhat still.
    He grabs his head, somewhat confounded, “Miss, is something wrong? Didn’t you say you were going to purchase some herbs? Have you bought them now?”
    Muyan has a smile that isn’t a smile, and just as she’s about to speak-
    They see a white-bearded old man rushing to come over.
    He holds a document in one hand, while firmly clutching a porcelain bottle in the other hand.
    As he’s running, he’s frequently bowing his head to take a quick look, like he’s afraid that the treasured object would be knocked out of his hand.
    “Are- are you Miss Jun? It’s an honor to meet you, it’s an honor to meet you at last!!”
    As soon as he sees Muyan, who is next to Old Tao, he immediately rushes over in two or three steps. Disregarding that he’s old enough that he could be Muyan’s grandfather, he gives a deep bow and says: “I didn’t expect that the famous godly apothecary would actually be so young. Ah, this old man also refines medicines, but seeing the draught that you’ve made, I feel completely ashamed of being inferior, so embarrassed of my ineptitude ah!”
    “Miss Jun, this old man has brought over the consignment contract for draughts this time. Do you think that we could sign it now, or do you have any further requirements? Our Wangjiang Ghost City will certainly do the utmost of our capabilities to satisfy you!”
    As he’s speaking, he’s eagerly handing over that contract.
    But his other hand is still firmly grasping that porcelain bottle, pressing it against his chest like he’s afraid that other people would snatch it away.
    There’s a smirk in Muyan’s mouth as she indifferently glances at that contract, but she doesn’t receive it.
    Instead, she drawls: “There’s no need. I think that it would be better cancel our agreement.”
    Magistrate Liu stares blankly, “Cancel? What… what does it mean?”
    “It means that I’m not going to sell this special grade draught in Wangjiang’s Ghost City,”
     Magistrate Liu blinks, and then he blinks again.
    It looks like he’s taking quite a while to understand what Muyan said.
    “M-M-M-Miss Jun, what are you saying?” Magistrate Liu’s anxious words go out in a stutter, and he almost drops the treasured bottle in his grasp, “Miss Jun, please don’t play jokes, didn’t we already come to an agreement? Is the consignment fee too expensive? I… we could reduce it to half of before, no, we can also do it for free.”
    Muyan shows a languid smile and looks at him.
    She stretches out a hand, and before Magistrate Liu could react, the porcelain bottle that he’s holding like a baby has already disappeared from his grasp, going into Muyan’s hand.
    “If I remember it correctly, this bottle should contain the Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking that I’ve refined, yes? Since I no longer intend to sell it in Wangjiang’s Ghost City, shouldn’t it naturally be returned to me?”
    Saying that, she tosses it to Feng Haitang like she’s throwing trash.
    “Noooo–!!” Magistrate Liu immediately lets out a distressed wail of yearning.
    His Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking, his precious baby!
    “Miss Jun, just what happened? If you have any requirements, please say it! We’ll promise you anything, is that still not enough?”
    He really wants to kneel down to this ancestor.
    Ah, it was with great difficulty this godly draught had arrived to his door! It was with great difficulty that the Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking entered his hands ah!
    Previously, these godly draughts had only been available in Xia’an’s Ghost City.
    But today, this godly apothecary had actually sent herself to his door, and he was practically wild with joy.
    But he wasn’t happy for long, before he falls from heaven to hell.

EMHS – ch449

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 449: Two faction as divided as the rivers of Jing and Wei
    Some are in favor of Xu Fu, believing that giving the herbs to Shi-xianzi would let the Ghost City obtain the biggest benefits, and these kind of people account for the overwhelming majority of the Magistrates.
    Only a small minority stands beside that middle-aged woman, Magistrate Qin. They believe that the Ghost Lord’s order is everything, so how could they not comply?
    Seeing they would actually be so stubborn, Xu Fu couldn’t help but frown, looking cold and harsh, “Magistrate Qin, everything the I do is for the good of the Ghost City. If you’re being this stubborn, wait until I report to the Ghost King later, and you will not have a good end.”
    Shi Lanling also sends a glance towards that middle-aged woman. With a light snort, she arrogantly says: “Rui Zhu, the Elixirs that I refine are not allowed be sold to these people in the future!”
    Rui Zhu smiles and says: “Rest assured, Miss. Since these people are unable to tell good from bad, I’m afraid that they would no longer be able to buy any Elixirs later, let alone the ones that the Lady refines. Hehe, all of these is what they brought upon themselves!”
    Xu Fu hears that, and he’s pleased beyond words in his mind.
    Some people behind Magistrate Qin show some hesitation. There are two people who couldn’t stand the pressure, and they walk to stand behind Xu Fu.
    They even follow to persuade: “Magistrate Qin, why should you be so stubborn for a little girl that you’ve never met before? What’s more, we’re not denying her either. It’s just that Shi-xianzi requires the herbs, so we’re going to give them to Shi-xianzi first.”
    “That’s right, this is the best decision for our Ghost City. Why should set yourself against everyone for a Shenshu when you don’t know if it’s real or fake?”
    But the middle-aged woman stretches her neck, not allowing Xu Fu to give the drug ingredients to Shi Lanling, “I am not setting myself against all of you. I only know that in the Ghost City, the Ghost Lord’s orders are everything. If you go against the orders of the Ghost Lord, then you don’t deserve to stay in the Ghost City!”
    “Hehe, Qin Xiangyu, since you’re really unable to tell good from bad, then don’t blame us for being impolite!”
    Xu Fu coldy says: “Magistrate Qin is colluding with outsiders to harm the interests of the Ghost City. Lock her up first, and wait for the Ghost King to return and hand down punishments.”
    Clang–Clang–Clang–!
    Both sides simultaneously unsheathe their weapons, swords drawn and bows bent.
    It’s awfully clear that Magistrate Qin’s side is weaker and at a disadvantageous position.
    Muyan looks at these two factions that are as divided as the rivers of Jing and Wei, and she faintly narrows her eyes.
    It seems like she’s finally witnessing the undercurrents surging up violently in Wangjiang’s Ghost City.
    She suddenly remembers that back in that past life, it seems like Jing Cheng’s Ghost City has ultimately fallen into Gong Qianxue’s hands.
    What about now?
    Has Gong Qianxue’s hands already burrowed into this Wangjiang’s Ghost City?
    Just as the two opposing sides are in a deadlock-
    Old Tao suddenly rushes inside, full of joy as he does so.
    As soon as he sees Muyan, he immediately bows to make his salutations, “So you’re here, Miss. I was looking for you.”
    “We have finished the negotiation for the consignment of the new batch of draughts. Wangjiang’s Ghost City is willing to reduce the cut to ten percent from the original price, and they’re only waiting for your confirmation and signature. Old Liu is currently waiting for you in the other private room!”
    As he’s bringing this up, Old Tao is in high spirits, radiant with delight.
    Muyan’s draughts are consigned for sale in the Ghost City, and the Ghost City originally had a twenty percent cut.
    This fee was the lowest rate in the entire Ghost City.
    But now, in order to build a good relationship with them, Wangjiang’s Ghost City is lowering the service charge to ten percent.
    Raising the Tianji Unit and the Ink Camp needs more money, right? How could Old Tao be dissatisfied of being able to make more money?
    Of course, the key factor isn’t Old Tao speaking well.
    Instead, it’s the draughts the Muyan is putting forward. Which of them isn’t invaluable, one can scramble for it but still not get it.
    Old Liu, who is in charge of discussing business, took one look at the draught they’ve put forward, and his eyes turned red.

Chapter 448: Ghost City’s Interests is the most important
    “Don’t forget that when our Miss refines Elixirs, some of it will be put for sale at Ghost City!”
    Xu Fu is jolted up, coming back to his senses, and grovels as he bows down towards Shi Lanling.
    As he turns around towards Muyan, his face no longer has the careful nervousness and fawning from earlier.
    “Miss, with regard to the matter of the drug ingredients, I’ve already clearly explained it to you just a moment ago. Regardless of whether the Shenshu token is real or not, I think that you should nevertheless stop pestering about it endlessly, just leave now.”
    Ru Yan shakes in anger, “You people have examined the Shenshu token earlier – couldn’t you tell whether it’s real or fake? This token has been personally handed over to Miss Jun by the Ghost King of Xia’an. I was there at that time. Why would you people say that the Lady’s status as a Shenshu is fake?”
    “So what if it’s real?” Xu Fu snorts, and there’s disdain across his whole face.
    At this point, he might as well just throw down the broken pot.
    In any case, he has already offended Jun Muyan. Regardless of whether Jun Muyan is a Shenshu or not, she wouldn’t look upon him favorably.
    Then he’s better off tightly holding on to Shi Lanling’s thigh. When the moment comes, the benefits that he can gain could only be too many to count.
    “Just now, Shi-xianzi had also said that the main use for these herbs is in alchemy. You’re someone who can’t do alchemy, so what can you do by taking away these ingredients? Could it be the same as Shi-xianzi’s, that it could be placed for sale in our Ghost City?”
    The more Xu Fu speaks, the more excited he gets, “Every time Shi-xianzi delivers an Elixir to our Ghost City, do you know the price it could sell for, and how big are the benefits it brings to our Ghost City? To say nothing of your fake Shenshu, even if it’s real, can your status be mentioned in the same breath as Shi-xianzi’s? Why do you want to pick a fight with her?”
    “Magistrate Xu, what you’re saying is going too far!” at the side, there’s a woman of about forty years old. Hearing what was said, she’s finally unable to bear it, so she steps forward, “It was the Ghost Lord’s order to treat the Shenshu as a guest of honor. If Miss Jun is truly one, she must have the privilege of taking precedence in purchasing these drug ingredients. Even if she wants to take these herbs away for free, that would also be permitted.”
    “Going back on your word like this, deceiving the Shenshu, do you see our Ghost City’s rules as child’s play?”
    Hearing those words, there’s a flash in Xu Fu’s eyes, and he appears somewhat flustered.
    Soon however, he remembers the recent rumors of Jing Cheng’s Ghost City.
    He has heard that Jing Cheng’s Ghost King is the strongest among the three countries, even close to that of the Ghost Lord.
    And these people’s Ghost King couldn’t keep up with the Ghost Lord.
    The Ghost King of Jing Cheng might break away from the Ghost Lord’s control, and cooperate with Jing Cheng’s royal family.
    At that time, what order of the Ghost Lord, what Shenshu, how can he still care about those?
    Today, if he can win over Shi-xianzi and rope her to the Ghost King’s side, perhaps, not only will he escape punishment for offending the Shenshu, he could even obtain enormous rewards.
    Thinking of this, Xu Fu’s expression immediately calms down.
    He narrows his eyes, and casts a sidelong glance at that middle-aged woman, “Magistrate Qin, everything that I do is for the good of the Ghost City, thinking about its future. You have to think about it, is it important that we make good to a woman who can’t even do alchemy, and can’t bring benefits to the Ghost City; or is it important to build a good relationship with Shi-xianzi? Even if it’s the order of the Ghost Lord, if it harms the interests of the Ghost City, then I, Xu Fu, will not comply.”
    “Isn’t that right, everyone?”
    The Magistrates and Ghost Envoys on the scene face each other, discussing spiritedly.
    They are slowly splitting into two factions.

EMHS – ch447

Chapter 447: What pair of father and son
    For a brief moment, the room sinks into silence because of what Di Ming Jue and Xiao Bao said.
    Then it suddenly erupts into intense discussion.
    “Heavens, it turns out to be a family of three, and Shi-xianzi actually wants to wreck their home, that’s really… really not supposed to be…”
    “I truly didn’t expect that Shi-xianzi, who’s usually clear as ice and clean as jade, not eating the food of common mortals – she unexpectedly turns out to be the kind person who would tempt a married man, tsk tsk…”
    “Oh my god, that little boy is so cute! Looking at those bright limpid eyes is making my heart all soft.” there are also women among the Ghost Envoys and Magistrates. They see Xiao Bao asking Di Ming Jue to not be seduced by Shi Lanling, and their hearts fill up with disapproval, “How could Shi-xianzi do something like this? Wanting to snatch a family’s father, even wanting to bully that adorable child!”
    Shi Lanling hears the words of the surrounding people, and her body wobbles, almost passing out.
    The blush on her face has already drained away, replaced by a deathly paleness. Her white face then turns to green, her eyes fill up with grief, indignation, and despair.
    Soon after, she ferociously glares at Muyan, her face revealing a sinister killing intent.
    Muyan uses her fingers to twirl the hair hanging by her side, and she can’t help but send a glance towards Di Ming Jue and Xiao Bao.
     It’s amusing!
     Someone has come to provoke, but before she could take care it, it’s already been settled by this pair of “father and son”.
    This Shi Lanling’s complexion is practically uglier than when Muyan spread the White Jade Purple Frost on her.
    It makes Muyan lose all interest in her.
    She couldn’t stop a smiling expression from appearing in her eyes.
    Then her face slightly goes stiff.
    Hold on! What ‘pair of father and son’!
    When did she say that she would marry Di Ming Jue? When did she say that she would want Xiao Bao to recognize him as father?
    And Xiao Bao, this guy, didn’t he really dislike Di Ming Jue before?
    Why is he so enthusiastically calling him dad now?
    She doesn’t know that this is also the first time that Xiao Bao has called the other ‘dad’ so smoothly.
    When he called that out just a moment ago, it was for the purpose of supporting Muyan. He had entirely forgotten about any shyness and awkwardness.
    After he finished saying that out loud, his tiny face immediately goes red.
    His huge eyes occasionally flick towards Di Ming Jue.
    He… does he or does he not like Xiao Bao calling him dad? Is he going to get mad?
    Just at this moment, Di Ming Jue lifts up his head, and pinches Xiao Bao’s soft and tender little face. Then he speaks with a sneer: “Do you take your father for an idiot? How can I take a fancy to this unsightly thing? Dad will only have your mother as the sole woman in my life!”
    Xiao Bao’s big eyes blink. Inside them, there’s a pure and crystal clear smiling expression that slowly ripples out.
    It’s as if brilliant fireworks blossom within his eyes.
    It makes the whole person appear softer, and more adorable. Even for a hard-hearted man, looking at such a child will sweeten his his heart.
    Muyan originally thought of refuting what Di Ming Jue said.
    But seeing her son’s happy smile, seeing Di Ming Jue familiar posture of carrying her son with an almost imperceptible smile at the corners of his mouth… in the end, she still swallows back the words on her lips.
    She herself hasn’t noticed that the lazy and beguiling smile on her face has faded.
    Slowly rising up to the surface of her countenance is the sweetness, ease, and tranquility that she hasn’t allowed herself for so many years.
     Shi Lanling’s form trembles violently. In her extreme hatred and jealousy, she almost couldn’t contain a hysterical scream.
    Rui Zhu could feel that her Miss’ rationality is close to falling apart.
    A change comes over her complexion, and she immediately yells: “What are you all just staring blankly for? Hurry up and shoo away this woman who’s pretending to be a Shenshu!”
    Saying that, she ferociously glares at Xu Fu: “Magistrate Xu, are you stupid? Don’t tell me you’re really going to sell so many precious herbs to someone who can’t even do alchemy?”

EMHS – ch446

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 446: Follow whatever Yanyan says
    The reason for this is said to be the lack of a certain type of energy in the Yanwu Continent, making it very difficult for Pills to condense and take form.
    Only a small number of people with special talents, or secret inheritances, have the ability to successfully do alchemy.
    This little girl surnamed Jun, if she thinks that buying some precious drug ingredients to concoct some Pills, and she can just succeed in alchemy, then that is really a huge joke.
    Hearing the whispering voices of the people around them, Shi Lanling is more and more satisfied in her mind.
    She only feels that the gloominess that has accumulated all this time, seem to be released all at once.
    She very quickly adjusts her own expressions, and looks towards Di MIng Jue with worry and sincerity, “Di Jun, it would be better for you to persuade Miss Jun, that she really should not extravagantly squander your money like this, and do some unrealistic thing, just because she’s peeved with me. Could it be that she hasn’t considered your feelings?”
    “If, if you really need an Elixir, then just tell me. I will definitely refine it for you with my own hands!”
    As she says this last bit, there’s a blush on her face, her features appear bashful and emotional.
    Even through the veil, one can make out her endless affection.
    Only then does everyone’s line of sight fall on Di Ming Jue.
    Then they have a startling discovery. They actually hadn’t noticed that this man’s appearance is so handsome, beautiful like the gods above the Ninth Heaven. His temperament is so eminent, that even as he represses his breath, he could still make people unconsciously want to surrender.
    Many people have their eyes sweep through Di Ming Jue, Jun Muyan, and Shi Lanling.
    In their minds, they’ve already drawn a melodramatic love triangle on these three individuals.
    Even though the young woman with the surname Jun has an absolutely beautiful appearance, Shi-xianzi could nevertheless refine Elixirs that would certainly be immensely helpful towards the man’s cultivation.
    This beautiful man that doesn’t appear like an ordinary mortal, who knows which one will he choose?
    Di Ming Jue has been awfully quiet all day as he’s carrying Xiao Bao.
    It’s not that Jun Shang-daren has a change of personality today.
    But as soon as they entered the Ghost City, Jun Shang-daren could barely refrain from recalling the bad memories from that previous time.
    He was incredibly anxious as he rushed over, believing that when the hero saves the beauty, Muyan would immediately give her heart to him.
    He didn’t expect that after saving her, she would instead turn her back on him for being nosy and meddlesome.
    Humph… unexpectedly daring to turn her back on Ben Jun for being nosy and meddlesome?!
    And it’s not just once or twice.
    Di Ming Jue grinds his teeth.
    Thus, in their trip to the Ghost City this time, Jun Shang-daren decided to be all quiet through the whole thing, thoroughly suppressing the pressure and momentum from his body.
    Follow everything Yanyan says.
    Have Yanyan take charge of everything.
    Who would have imagined that while he’s being so subdued, he would still surprisingly attract some flies.
    Hearing Shi Lanling’s words, Di Ming Jue and Xiao Bao simultaneously look down.
    Two pairs of practically identical ice-blue pupils, without the slightest bit of expression, fall on Shi Lanling’s face.
    Getting herself stared at by these two sets of cold, heavy eyes – Shi Lanling goes rigid from head to foot.
    Soon after, she hears the man’s voice. It’s deep, low and magnetic, but overflowing with disgust.
    “Where did this hideous thing come from? When is it your turn to care about anything that Ben Jun’s woman wants to buy?”
    Xiao Bao says: “Dad, did you forget? She’s that old aunt who bullied Xiao Bao at the gates of Di Yuan. Now she want to bully niangqin!”
    Saying that, annoyed blue eyes stare at Shi Lanling, “Old aunt, don’t you have any sense of shame? Just several days ago, you were scrambling for Xiao Bao’s dad; now, you’ve come to grab niangqin’s herbs.”
    Finished with that, he even blinks his huge eyes towards Di Ming Jue, “Dad, you mustn’t be deceived by this old aunt’s outward appearance. She is a bad person, bullying Xiao Bao and niangqin.”
