Chapter 546: Keep my body safe
If someone from Tian Yi Men were to know that Muyan is the Shen Musician heir, the consequences would be too horrible to contemplate.
Di Ming Jue’s complexion is ashen. He doesn’t respond to Han Ye, but he suddenly turns to look at Muyan.
Muyan stares at him in astonishment, her mind is inexplicably a little panicked, “What happened? Liu Se, she…”
Before she could finish her words, the hold on her waist tightens, and she’s firmly pulled into the man’s arms.
Then a passionate, overbearing kiss descends on her.
The biting kiss is short, but it’s endlessly consuming and possessive.
When he lets her go, for a few short breaths, Muyan feels her legs are unsteady where she stands, and her red lips have gone numb.
He bit her!
Muyan raises her head to complain, but the man’s low, husky voice enters her ears, “Muyan, keep my body safe and wait for me to come back!”
Saying that, his figure flashes before her eyes, instantly disappearing.
In a split second, Muyan only feels like there’s a piece of her heart missing, an absence.
All of a sudden, she seems to remember something, and her consciousness enters the Space.
Sure enough, she finds Di Ming Jue’s body inside, lying dormant like it doesn’t have life.
This scoundrel, why can he enter her Space without her permission?
And what the hell does he mean by “keep my body safe”?
Cursing inwardly, Muyan looks calm on the outside.
With the Ghost Lord’s lead, several people quickly leave the room.
As it turns out, when the stone room sank underground, it went straight into the Ghost Hall’s underground labyrinth.
If no one was there to guide, even a Precelestial expert could be trapped alive and die there.
But similarly, if they run into danger, this is also the best place for people to hide within the Ghost Wind Valley.
Also, this Ghost Wind Valley’s terrain is easily guarded, hard to attack – in addition to the Poison Smog acting as a protective screen.
It’s really a great place to set up camp.
“Miss Jun!” as Muyan is thinking about the advantages of the Ghost Wind Valley, she suddenly hears Gu Yue’s grateful voice, “Your grace of saving my life, this subordinate is unable to return the favor. But if Miss Jun wouldn’t despise it, I would like to give you this Ghost Wind Valley, as well as all the Valley’s Ghost Envoys. What do you think?”
Muyan stares blankly, almost suspecting that she had misheard it, “Give me the Ghost Wind Valley? If I remember it correctly, the Ghost Wind Valley has always been the main stronghold of the Ghost City. For you guys, it’s said that it’s value is greater than any single Ghost City.”
Gu Yue chuckles: “Ghost City is the property of our Polar Domain, and this humble one has only been managing it for the past hundred years. Moreover, Miss Jun, you are the future Mistress of our Polar Domain. To say nothing of merely giving you an insignificant Ghost Wind Valley, even the status of the Ghost City is currently uncertain. To have created difficulties for you, Miss Jun, we might as well give you the entire Ghost City.”
“That’s right, that’s right!” Han Ye doesn’t wait for Muyan to respond, already going along with it, “Miss Jun, I’ve already told you, just tell Jun Shang if you want anything. Even if it’s a star in the sky, he would pluck it down for you, let alone a small Ghost Wind Valley, yeah? Everyone would be your people sooner or later, just forego the formalities.”
Muyan: Haha, nobody wants to be your people ‘sooner or later’, thank you very much!
However, thinking of this Valley, which is easy to defend and difficult to attack, unexpectedly turning into her very own stronghold – even with her calm, Muyan couldn’t suppress a smile from her face.
Her Ink Camp and Tianji Unit are growing, and the Void Camp is also being formed.
Be it in Tianyuan City or Wangjiang City, a small courtyard could no longer accommodate that staff.
Now, with the Ghost Wind Valley, it’s really like a sleepy person getting handed a pillow.
Chapter 542: Fool
Muyan slightly narrows her eyes. Her expression unreadable, but her sweet-sounding voice is clearly conveyed into everyone’s ears, “The time you’ve been acquainted with Ghost King Liu isn’t short, you can’t tell me that you people don’t know that Ghost King Liu’s specialty lies in Gu Poisons?”
Hearing that, the Black and White Protectors jump in fright, their gazes simultaneously turning to look at the Ghost Lord’s corpse.
Because the Ghost Lord was knocked down while he was attacking Muyan, his extended black nails still haven’t retracted.
Like this, it really quite reminiscent of a Gu poisoning.
A flustered look flashes through Liu Se’s face, but she quickly shouts: “Jun Muyan, your methods are so malicious. You’re obviously the one who poisoned the Ghost Lord, rendering him helpless, and still mercilessly killing him. Now, you actually want to plant this on my head?”
“Would you dare to say that the bloody holes on the Ghost Lord’s body did not come about because you stabbed him?”
Muyan nods without the slightest hesitation, “Correct, the injuries on the Ghost Lord were caused by me. Under your control, he attacked me. Should I not have fought back?”
“You guys hear that?!” Liu Se immediately turns towards the Black and White Protectors, shouting, “Regardless of what the Ghost Lord went through beforehand, she’s the one who killed him, and presently, it’s also this slut who had harmed me to this extent. What are you guys still staring about for? Why don’t you hurry up and cut them into pieces!”
The Black and White Protectors both frown, until finally, they coldly look at Muyan, “Since you admit that you’re the one who inflicted the mortal wound on the Ghost Lord, that means you’re the one who killed him. You must die!”
“Ah… fools!” Muyan scoffs, “If you idiots were all the Ghost Lord had on hand, then it’s no wonder that he had been so easily misled.”
Turning over a wrist, a knife appears in her hand. Before everyone could come to themselves and react-
The hand rises, then the blade falls. There’s the sound of a stab, as the sharp blade suddenly pierces the Ghost Lord’s body.
The whole audience falls into a deathly stillness.
Soon after, the Black and White Protectors have their eyes practically bulging out. Looking like they’ve completely gone mad, they rush straight to Muyan, “Slut, you dare?!!!”
But, without waiting for their attacks to reach Muyan-
There’s a sudden flash of silvery light.
A silver needle goes into the Ghost Lord’s heart, then pulls out through the wound that was just recently cut open by the knife.
Soon after, everyone could see a terrifying red bug struggling incessantly at the tip of the silver needle.
A pair of machine-like, compound eyes keeps on shifting towards everyone around.
The mouth opens and closes, and it’s like you could see the sticky flesh inside.
“Urgh–!” some low-cultivation Ghost Envoy already cannot help but feel their stomach churn from disgust.
And the pair’s attack comes to a grinding halt, stopping at a distance less than a meter away from Muyan.
“What… what is that?!” the pair asks in alarm.
Why would such a terrible bug come out from the Ghost Lord’s heart?
Muyan shoots them a contemptuous glance, “This is the Three Corpses Gu, which has fed on the Ghost Lord’s blood essence. Only a little bit away from turning into a King of thousands of Gu.”
“Ghost King Liu, don’t tell me you don’t recognize this thing?”
Liu Se sneers: “Jun Muyan, you don’t have to frame me again and again. Even if there’s the Three Corpses Gu in the Ghost Lord, you’re still the one who placed it there – what does it have to do with me? If I can administer the Three Corpses Gu to the Ghost Lord, how could I have fallen to this state? Protectors, you mustn’t be fooled by this treacherous, murderous woman!”
Sure enough, the Black Reaper and the White Reaper have their face show hesitation once again.
Chapter 541: Why is your face so red?
Muyan stands unsteadily, her body swaying to the side. However, she suddenly crashes into Di Ming Jue’s arms.
The man’s warm, taut skin is closely pressed against her, separated only by a thin cloth.
A steamy breath puffs by her ears, bringing with it an ambiguous and lingering sensation.
The candle flame has gone out due to this sudden development of events.
In the pitch-black where you hold out a hand and couldn’t see your five fingers, this usually induces panic and nervousness in people.
But Muyan couldn’t care about any of that.
That’s because this shameless man beside her is actually taking advantage of the moment the light has disappeared, straight up kissing her on the lips.
With a boom, the stone room finally stops it’s descent.
“Jun Shang, are you and Miss Jun all right?” they hear Han Ye’s concerned voice.
“Since you people killed the Ghost Lord, all of you will just be buried together with him in this Ghost Hall underground tomb!”
The Black an White Protectors are hysterical, hate-filled voices reverberating in entire stone room.
Then the light goes up, illuminating everyone’s faces.
Liu Se’s smug madness, the Black and White Protectors’ resentment, the Ghost Lord’s lifeless and ashy complexion, as well as Han Ye’s anxiousness – they all appear in fine detail.
Seeing that Muyan and Di Ming Jue are safe and unharmed, Han Ye sighs in relief.
But suddenly, he says with some confusion: “Miss Jun, why is your face so red?”
Muyan doesn’t respond, but she ruthlessly hits Di Ming Jue with her elbow.
Only then does she purses her lips, which are still somewhat sore, and raises a hand. Strings shoot out.
Before Liu Se and the Black and White Protectors could react-
Those strings have already taken hold of the Ghost Lord, covering him up lightning-fast, and dragging him before Muyan.
“Ghost Lord–!!” the Black and White Protectors bellow, wanting to rush over.
Han Ye snorts and steps forward, brandishing his longsword.
He immediately forces the pair to retreat again and again.
Almost at the same time, the entrance of the stone room opens, and countless Ghost Envoys swarm in, surrounding Muyan and the others.
“All of you can see it, yes? These people deliberately infiltrated the Ghost Wind Valley to assassinate the Ghost Lord.” Liu Se gnashes her teeth and shrieks, her eyes gleaming with a sinister light, “The one who killed the Ghost Lord is this Jun Muyan, posing as a doctor. But nobody expected that I would actually see through this vicious woman’s deception.”
“This woman used the guise of treating his illness to kill the Ghost Lord, even wanting to kill and silence me. Now, she won’t even spare the Ghost Lord’s dead body. Protectors, you must absolutely not let her get away with this!”
The Black Reaper and the White Reaper stare coldly at Muyan, harshly speaking in unison, “You people best return the Ghost Lord’s corpse at once, then I might consider leaving your corpses intact!”
But Muyan doesn’t pay attention to their threats. She crouches down to examine the Ghost Lord’s heavily damaged body. Sighing, she says: “Tsk, tsk. His Highness, the great Ghost Lord, ending up as another person’s puppet, that really is quite sad.”
“But Ghost King Liu, shouldn’t you know better than anyone, just how exactly did the Ghost Lord die?”
Something flashes on Liu Se’s face, but she immediately raves with her rough, unpleasant voice: “What nonsense are you talking about? You clearly killed the Ghost Lord, the many wounds on his body is the best evidence of this!”
“Heh…” Muyan’s smiling expression is filled with ridicule, “I wouldn’t dare attest about Ghost King Liu’s other qualities, but her ability to speak blindly with open eyes – that is really unparalleled.”
Saying that, she turns to look at the Black and White Protectors, “You two have always been guarding next to the Ghost Lord, don’t tell me neither of you noticed that there’s something really weird with his illness?”
“What’s so weird?” the Black Protector subconsciously asks.
“The Ghost Lord didn’t get sick at all, but someone gave him the [Three Corpses Gu].”
Chapter 540: They killed the Ghost Lord
Xiao Bao had been so tiny back then, she didn’t expect that he would actually remember it all this time.
In this incarnation, that she could have such a treasure as Xiao Bao, she doesn’t have any regrets about being reborn into this life.
Just as she thinks about that, Xiao Bao little head is suddenly pushed away by a large hand.
Following that, a tender kiss falls on her slowly closing wound. A man’s deep, husky voice enters her ears, “Yanyan, don’t feel pain… your husband’s kiss will make it all better.”
If she has some peeve in this life, it would be unexpectedly running into this shameless guy.
Xiao Bao indignantly shoves Di Ming Jue off, hugging Muyan’s neck, “Niangqin is mine! You’re not allowed to grab her!”
Di Ming Jue laughs grimly: “Jun Mochen, do you want Ben Jun to use force in order to inform you who exactly Muyan belongs to?”
One big, one small; big eyes glare at smaller ones. Just as they’re about to make trouble, the stone room’s entrance suddenly opens with a loud rumble.
Han Ye burst inside in a rush, shouting out, “Miss Jun, what happened just now? Are you all right… J-Ju-Jun- Jun Shang, why are you here?!”
Muyan has sharp eyes and agile hands, as she quickly stuffs Xiao Bao and the rabbit back into the Space.
The Black and White Protectors also dash in together.
Seeing the scene before their eyes, they are struck dumb.
“Who are you people? How are you able to go into my Ghost Sanctum?”
“Ghost King Liu? How come you’re in here as well?!”
While they talk, their gazes shift around and finally fall on the blood-covered, hole-riddled body of the Ghost Lord on the floor.
The pair rushes towards the Ghost Lord in a sort of flurry, anxiousness painted across their faces, “Ghost Lord? Ghost Lord!! What happened to you?”
But as their hands make contact with the tip of Gu Yue’s nose, they discover that he’s not breathing at all. Then they’re simultaneously frightened and angry, “Who?! Who killed the Ghost Lord?!”
The pair’s eyes are red, ferociously glaring at the people on the scene, like they want to commit murder with their gazes.
All of a sudden, the ice binding up Liu Se shatters with a loud rumble.
She immediately tumbles to the floor, heavily taking in rough gasps.
Muyan and Di Ming Jue’s eyes gather over towards her.
Di Ming Jue raises his brows a bit, apparently not expecting that Liu Se would be able to break free from the ice.
But despite escaping her constraints, she still paid a painful price for it.
Both of her hands actually break from the shoulders, directly falling down to the ground and shattering.
But because she’s frozen all over, there’s not a lot of blood flowing out.
The pain and despair from losing her arms is making her eyes burn red. She viciously glares at Muyan and Di Ming Jue.
“It was them… gu gu… they killed the Ghost Lord… gu gu gu… I… I felt worried for the Ghost Lord, so… so I came in to take a look… gu gu gu… only to see them raise their hands against the Ghost Lord, they… they won’t even let me get away… gu gu gu…”
As she’s shaking uncontrollably, Liu Se is yelling with gritted teeth: “Black… Black and White Protectors, quick-quickly gather everyone of the Ghost Wind Valley, to these… these murderers, kill… kill without amnesty… gu gu gu…”
Hearing that, the Black and White Protectors have their eyes widen so much that the corners are about to split.
They don’t even spare some time to carefully ponder on how Liu Se could appear inside this stone room, snarling as they pounce over to Muyan.
However, Di Ming Jue is standing beside Muyan, and there’s no way he would allow anyone to hurt her.
The Black Reaper and the White Reaper gather their whole bodies’ Internal Force in a single attack, but it seems like they’ve hit an invisible barrier.
With a bang, they are directly bounced back.
The two of them share a glance, bitterness bursting forth on their faces.
Suddenly, the Black Reaper places his fingers at the corners of his mouth, issuing a piercing whistle.
In a split second, the entire stone room echoes with a thunderous rolling, and it unexpectedly begins to rapidly sink down.
