Chapter 276: Implore
 
    It is solely the marks of inhumane abuse on a woman’s body that puts a dense frost in Muyan eyes, creating a freezing air of death.
 
    She takes a deep breath, slowly asking: “Who did these to you? Zhao Chunming?”
 
    If that animal Zhao Chunming did these,
 
    Then big brother’s final punishment to him was really too light.
 
    Fang Jingya doesn’t shy away to cover her ugly, dirty, and scarred body. She just shakes her head in distress, “It wasn’t Zhao Chunming. He likes to hit me, and burn me with a candle… but…”
 
    “It was the godfather that he sent me to, he was the one that used such crazed cruelty to abuse me. The Xuan Medical Pavilion’s great elder, Deng Hongfeng!”
 
    Muyan’s pupils slightly contract.
 
    Then she listens to Fang Jingya continue: “Deng Hongfeng likes to forcefully seize women, but not a lot of people know that he… he can’t get it up at all… and because he can’t, he would use all kinds of cruel ways to abuse women so he could give vent to his perverted desires.”
 
    As she speaks, her tears can’t help but slip out from the corners of her eyes.
 
    “At the beginning, I still wanted to resist, but the outcome of that resistance is only an incrementally worse misery each time… as a matter of fact, I’ve long thought of ending my life… clearly so filthy, why haven’t I ended myself yet?”
 
    “Now ending up in such a plight, isn’t all of this just what I’ve brought upon myself?”
 
    Muyan takes some clothes at the side and securely wraps it around the other.
 
    Her normally lazy voice has a rare gentleness, “Suicide is the most cowardly way to escape. Don’t cry, I can cure you of your body’s injuries.”
 
    Fang Jingya lifts up her watery eyes. Her gaze wells up with profound gratefulness as she looks at Muyan, “Miss Jun, thank you, thank you for not disdaining my filthy self, you’re even willing to make a promise to help me. But…”
 
    She slowly closes her eyes and takes in a deep breath.
 
    When she opens them again, what remains in the depths of her eyes is only a detached resolve, “But I don’t need to be cured, I only want to leave, leave Tianyuan City forever and disappear from Shen-brother. Miss Jun, can you promise me that?”
 
    Muyan stares blankly, “Why?”
 
    Fang Jingya’s tears fall from her eyes, one drop after another, the sorrow, grief, shame and distress – all of them intertwine to turn into despair, “When big brother Shen was facing his greatest hardship, I chose to abandon him and leave.”
 
    “It’s my fault that I ended up in this condition, but Shen-brother was still ready to disregard everything and save me.”
 
   “So much so that, for the purpose of righteousness and justice, for the affections of our past, for my current misfortune and distress – he may even ask to marry me.”
 
    “But how can I marry big brother Shen? To say nothing of Shen-brother not really having any romantic feelings towards me, even if he does, I would still be completely unworthy of him now.”
 
    The more she speaks, the more her tears flow like a broken dam, she speaks haltingly as she chokes with sobs.
 
    “My body is already so dirty, and you’re clearer about it than anyone else, that under the ravages of those two animals – Deng Hongfeng and Zhao Chunming – I have forever lost the chance to become a mother. The way I am, how can I be worthy to stand by Shen-brother’s side?”
 
    “He is so good, so good as he is… he deserves the best and most outstanding girl to be his wife.”
 
    Fang Jingya takes Muyan’s hand. Her tears a flood, but there is decisiveness in her eyes, without any cowering or hesitation.
 
    “Miss Jun, I beg you to send me away from Tianyuan City. No matter where I go, it wouldn’t matter if I live and perish on my own, just… just don’t let me stay by Shen-brother’s side.”

EMHS – ch275

Chapter 275: Niangqin, let’s go home

    The man with the short stubble is trembling from head to foot, his eyes are filled with panic an fear.

    Indeed, he knows more than anyone just how powerful this woman is!

    After Deng Hongfeng’s face has been slapped in front of everybody, how could he be willing to take things lying down?

    He even went to a mercenary guild straightaway, and spent money to hire a lot of them to get rid of this woman.

     However, no matter how much he spends, or how many mercenaries they dispatch – it was all like throwing a stone and seeing it sink without a trace in the sea.

    If alive, the people have disappeared; dead, the corpses are missing!

    That’s because Jun Muyan has a very frightening group of subordinates at her side.

    Every individual has a very high cultivation. Combined together, they could even sweep across Tianyuan City.

    Don’t even talk about teaching Muyan a lesson, the mercenaries sent out by Deng Hongfeng couldn’t even get close to her.

    This is also the reason why Deng Hongfeng wants Zhao Chunming to step in and use Fang Jingya to lure Shen Jinglin out.

    As long as they get a hold of Shen Jinglin, they’re not worried that Jun Muyan, this little sister, wouldn’t obediently give in.

    However, their wishful thinking has still been cut short.

    This woman doesn’t just have a group of experts on her side.

    She herself is a master that is strong enough to make them them shudder!

    “You… don’t you mess around!” the man with the thin stubble has his voice trembling, he growls to show strength while feeling weak, “If you kill us, you… that would be the same as you thoroughly offending Dr. Deng. Do you know what Dr. Deng’s backing is? His master is Qian Qing… don’t you know the Godly Doctor Qian Qing? He is the Jing Cheng Country’s state doctor, even Princess Gong Qianxue views him as a guest…”

    “Aaargh–!!”

    Before the man could finish what he’s saying, a heart-tearing and lung-splitting pain abruptly courses through him, making him produce a shrill, wretched bawl.

    Immediately after that, his own hand incessantly digs into his flesh, like he has gone mad.

    Then he can’t help but hold his own head and ram it against the ground.

    When the meat on his face is minced off until it reveals ghastly bones, he still refuses to stop for a rest.

    The corners of Muyan’s mouth are still slightly curled up.

    However, not the slightest bit of that smile reaches her eyes.

    Her beautiful peach blossom eyes has a bone-piercing chill that spans a thousand miles: “Is that so? I’m really looking forward to thoroughly offending Qian Qing’s apprentice, just to see how it ends.”

    As soon as her voice falls, there’s a thrumming sound of a zither. The notes turn into blades, sending out a multitude of rays.

    In a blink of an eye, the sound blades have already cut through all the throats of the killers on the stage.

    One strike and die a violent death!

    The whole audience keeps quiet out of fear. You would be able to hear it if a needle were to drop.

    Even Shen Jinglin is dazed.

    He already knew that his little sister is formidable, but he also didn’t expect that it would be to this degree.

    Furthermore, for some reason, that ice-cold breath coming from his sister-

    It’s making even him feel a sense of fear.

    It’s at this moment that that a crisp little voice rings out, “Niangqin, let’s go home!’

    A fair and tender little hand holds on to Muyan’s slender white finger, gently squeezing it.

    Muyan looks down to Xiao Bao’s delicate and handsome little face.

    The ice-blue irises are like the distant clear skies, boundless, encompassing everything in the world.

    Her mouth can’t help but draw a gentle smile.

    In an instant, the icy chill from her entire body disappears without a trace. She bends down and picks Xiao Bao up.

    The gentle voice is like the sounds of nature as it echoes in Shen Jinglin and Xiao Bao’s ears, “Mn, let’s go home!”

   ===

    Night, Junji Medical Center.

    Under the light, Muyan examines the scars covering the weak woman’s body. She can’t help but frown deeply.

    Even if she had seen all sorts of patients, and she had also been subjected to various kinds of torment in her previous life,

    The injuries on Fang Jingya’s body could still shock her eyes and astonish her heart.

    Don’t even mention those purple whip lashes, bruises and burns-

EMHS – ch274

Chapter 274: In the end, who mustn’t be offended

    And as her feet touches the floor, her eyes fall on Shen Jinglin, and the corners of her lips slowly curl up.

    Her whole body emits a charm that resembles nature itself. Everyone looking can only hold their breath as their souls are stolen.

    “Brother, you just went out to do something, what’s taking you so long? If you won’t come back, you’re going to miss a meal.”

    The girl’s voice is incredibly clear and pleasant, it lingers on the ears like ice beads tinkling down a jade plate.

    Shen Jinglin has a blush of shame across his whole face, guiltily replying: “I’m sorry, Yanyan, it’s because big brother is too useless. I still needed you to come and save me.”

    “How could this be big brother’s fault?”

    Muyan chuckles and turns to look at the man with the stubble, as well and his companions, as they sprawl on the ground, “Just a moment ago, I seemed to have heard you say that I am blind, to have offended someone that I shouldn’t?”

    “I even heard you all say that my older brother is unable to tell good from bad, so you’re going to cut off a few limbs from his body?”

    While she’s saying this, the young woman has a bright and beautiful smile and her tone is gentle, like a girl in a boudoir who isn’t well-versed in the affairs of the world.

    But everyone, on or off the stage, 

    They tremble all over from feeling an inexplicable chill on their spine as they look at the young woman’s smile.

    Just then, someone in the crowd, who’s attentively staring at Muyan’s face, suddenly has a flash of recognition and let’s out a loud cry of alarm.

    “She, she, she… she is the Enchantress Jun Muyan!”

    “She is the fairy-doctor of Junji Medical Center who can wrestle a life out the king of hell’s grasp!”

    In an instant, the whole audience goes quiet.

    Not a single voice can be heard.

    The people on the scene, each and every one of them is struck dumb.

    Enchantress Jun Muyan!

    Before their eyes, this young woman with an exceptional countenance, unexpectedly turns out to be the most sought-after individual in Tianyuan City these days, Enchantress Jun Muyan!

    So that means, Shen Jinglin is actually the Enchantress’ big brother?

    And the person who offended Xuan Medical Pavilion’s great elder Deng Hongfeng, it’s Jun Muyan?

    For a moment, everyone is rendered speechless!

    They had just been in a lively discussion, saying that Shen Jinglin’s younger sister has no eyes to discern people. At this time, all of them has completely shut up.

    They can’t utter a word anymore?

    What else can they say?

    Even if Deng Hongfeng has a formidable background,

    In the end, he’s still unable to withstand the Enchantress of Medicine’s supernaturally excellent skills in healing, as it’s at the extent that it’s unparalleled in the world!

    Quite a lot of people have speculated that the Enchantress’ skills may even be superior to that of the Gody Doctor Qian Qing.

    In the end, who mustn’t be offended?

    Just take a look at the current situation of the Junji Medical Center and the Hongfu Medical Center – then it would all be crystal clear.

    “Ah! As it turns out, Shen Jinglin is the older brother of the Enchantress. It’s no wonder that he has made some advancements to his cultivation, and his leg that had been broken for a year is restored to its former condition!” someone yells out after a sudden realization.

    The other people nod one after another, and their eyes no longer contain pity as they look at Shen Jinglin. Only envy and jealousy remain.

    To have a younger sister like Jun Muyan, that would truly be the greatest blessing!

    This is equal to Shen Jinglin having more lives compared to ordinary people!

    Even if he receives a mortal wound, Jun Muyan could pull him back from the gates of the underworld.

    If ordinary people want to see the Enchantress and ask for a medical treatment, it’s in fact extremely difficult.

    In reality, there’s still something that these people don’t know.

    Muyan isn’t just a doctor who can wrestle a life out of the king of hell’s grasp,

    She’s also a godly apothecary who can refine miraculous draughts.

    The hype bubbling and gurgling in the Ghost CIty these days, the special draughts that can be auctioned off for a sky-high price every time they appear – all of them had come from this young woman’s hands.

    And so, on the day when they would hear about this information, 

    It wouldn’t just shake a small place like Tianyuan City, but the whole Chi Yan Country, even the entire Yanwu Continent.

    ……

    After Muyan has finished her question, her gaze leisurely falls on the people on the floor. Her smile is soft and relaxed, like she’s talking in a friendly manner.

EMHS – ch273

Chapter 273: Who is the one that follows the path to doom

    Their leader, this man with a short stubble, is even at the Earth Stage. The surging Mysterious Energy from him is still denser than Shen Jinglin’s.

    It is practically impossible for him to deal with all these people by himself!

    However, it’s also absolutely impossible for him to obediently go with this group of people!

    He heard them just now – these people want to catch him in order to deal with Yanyan.

    “And if I don’t go with you?”

    “You won’t?” the leader seems to have heard a joke, “If Shen-dashao doesn’t want to go, then I can only handle you like I did with Zhao Chunming, chopping off parts of your body. For example, your hand, foot, and whatnot!”

    “Shen-dashao’s leg had just been healed, you probably wouldn’t wish for them to be crippled again so soon!”

    Shen Jinglin firmly clenches his fists, his eyes seem like they’re about to erupt in flames.

    There is not a thread nor a hair of cowering on his face, but he adapts an aggressive stance instead.

    Even if he dies, he will never allow himself to be a burden to Yanyan.

    “Haha… you want to resist? Then don’t blame these uncles for being vicious and merciless!”

    “If you want to blame someone, then blame that younger sister of yours. Who let her eyes be blind and offend someone who shouldn’t be offended?!”

    Just as his voice falls, the leader raises up his long knife, and fiercely slashes towards Shen Jinglin.

    Boundless Internal Force rushes out to the atmosphere, making everyone under the stage show horrified expressions and recoil again and again.

    A lot of people are filled with pity and sympathy for Shen Jinglin in their hearts.

    It was with great difficulty that his leg injury has been cured, and his cultivation has recovered, but he’ll become a waste once again.

    Just who is this sister of Shen Jinglin in the end?

    Why had she been so blind?

    Who else shouldn’t you offend in Tianyuan City, but Dr. Deng of Xuan Medical Pavilion!

    Isn’t this following the path to one’s own doom?

    The Internal Force surging in the air has a chilling pressure and the murderous spirit fills the atmosphere.

    But suddenly, there’s a mellifluous music in the distance, and from that distance it goes nearer, coming through like spirals of smoke.

    That music speaks of high mountains and flowing water, faraway and gentle.

    They don’t know why, as the music rings in their ears,

    It’s making the blood of everyone who hears it boil a little.

    The beleaguered Shen Jinglin, who has originally fallen into a tight spot, suddenly raises his head, his eyes gleaming and flashing.

    He seems embarrassed, yet moved.

    And the other people on the scene seem to have gone foolish as they listen, their heads raised as they listlessly stand around, and they could only return to their senses after a long time.

    In the next moment, there’s suddenly fluttering pink petals falling down from the sky.

    The petals are sporadic, and there’s not a lot of them.

    But it’s as if they’re alive, as petals actually stick to those killers around Shen Jinglin by themselves.

    The man with the stubble was initially still immersed in the music that plucks on one’s heartstrings.

    He suddenly feels a petal fall on his face, and he can’t help but reach out to touch it.

    The peculiar fragrance, along with a piercing chill, seeps through his skin and into the bone marrow.

    There’s a thudding sound in the leader’s mind, and he has an inexplicably bad feeling in his guts.

    However, without waiting for him to make any move,

    He hears an explosion in his ears, and simultaneously, he feels a tearing pain, and all the flesh on his body bursts open.

    A blood-curdling scream erupts from the stage.

    In just a few short breaths, the dozen or so individuals surrounding Shen Jinglin evenly fall to the floor. They’ve become badly mangled, that except for letting out pained moans, they can’t do anything else.

    In the sky, the sweet-sounding music gets farther and farther.

    However, the figure of a young woman in white clothes, as if dropping from the sky, slowly falls on the platform.

    The young woman’s complexion is like snow on high mountains, cold and bright, and sacred.

    There’s a noble charm and laziness in each movement, just one look and it could entrance their souls.

    And as her feet touches the floor, her eyes fall on Shen Jinglin, and the corners of her lips slowly curl up.

EMHS – ch272

Chapter 272: This is retribution

    No matter what language, they’re completely rendered incapable of expressing their astonishment.

    A man with withered meridians, destroyed Qi Sea, and a crippled leg – he has actually recovered after a year.

    More than that, not only has he recovered, his cultivation has even advanced. 

    How did this come about?

    And who healed him?!

    With his leg, Shen Jinglin mercilessly stomps on Zhao Chunming’s chest, like wants to just trample the latter’s internal organs: “Zhao Chunming, one who forgets favors and violates justice like you, a bastard with the heart of a wolf and the lungs of a dog, you simply don’t deserve to live in this world.”

    “Did you forget, at that time when you suffered some injuries in the forest during our travels, who looked after you day and night? It was Fang Jingya!”

    “Did you forget, you used to circle around Fang Jingya every day, showing off and fawning for favor, even pointing to the heavens as you swore under the sun – saying that if you marry her, you will surely treat her well!”

    Fang Jingya’s eyes become teary, and as she dazedly watches Shen Jinglin’s deity-like image, her tears couldn’t help but slip out the rims of her eyes.

    Zhao Chunming spasms all over because of the pain, tears and snot flowing down his face, “Jinglin-brother, I was wrong, wuu wuu… spare me, spare me! I was blinded by pig grease*… I’m begging you to spare my life! ”

  • deluded mind

    Just at this moment, a group of people suddenly appears from who-knows-where.

    They loudly jump up to the platform.

    These people have coldly glinting weapons in their hands.

    Formidable pressure and killing intent leaks out from each individual, making everyone standing under the platform feel a burst of terror.

    Shen Jinglin raises his head to look at this group: “Who are you?”

    “Hehe, who we are is none of Shen-dashao’s concern!”

    Their leader laughs grimly, “Still, we’d like to invite Shen-dashao to come with us!”

    As soon as Zhao Chunming sees these group, the expression of begging for forgiveness immediately changes. With a distorted face, he fearlessly yells: “Shen Jinglin, my godfather is coming, if you still don’t hurry up and let me go… cough cough… even if your cultivation has recovered, so what? Could you deal with this many people all by yourself?”

    “Godfather?” Shen Jinglin frowns.

    “That’s right… do you know who my godfather is?”

    Because of the pain, Zhao Chunming coughs quite a few times, but his face is covered in crazed resentment, “My godfather is the great elder Xuan Medical Pavilion, Deng Hongfeng. He is also a disciple of the Godly Doctor Qian Qing…”

    “You and your sister, you’ve offended my godfather… cough cough… you’re screwed… ha… haha… argh!!”

    Before he could finish laughing, he suddenly lets out a brief shriek.

    Immediately after that, Zhao Chunming’s face bursts out with blood.

    In a just a moment, his tongue is severed, his ears are cut off, and his eyes have turned into a pair of bloody sockets.

    Even both of his hands are also chopped down directly. His fingers are still twitching at the side as they pale to green and deathly grey.

    “Useless trash!”

    The group’s leader snorts. He withdraws his blade, and speaks with a voice overflowing with disdain, “You can’t even properly handle this very small matter, what’s the use of keeping you?”

    Zhao Chunming originally thought that Deng Hongfeng sent these people to save him.

    But how could he have expected that they will ultimately destroy him completely, when he had tired to every means possible to curry favor from his godfather’s subordinates.

    From now on, he will live worse than a dog or a pig, but he can’t die, nor can he live.

    This is retribution!

    As everyone in the audience is overwhelmed with shock, nobody goes to take care of him.

    All eyes are gathered on Shen Jinglin.

    “Shen-dashao, if you please!”

    Shen Jinglin coldly looks at the people surrounding him.

    Each one of them have at least high-level Profound Stage cultivation.

EMHS – ch271

Chapter 271: Not a waste?

    “Hahaha…” Zhao Chunming bursts out laughing, “Dashi, you can take it easy, don’t beat him to death. When all is said and done, the Shen family’s young master used to be a peak Profound Stage. We should also leave him some face!”

    Shen Jinglin used to be a famous young talent in Tianyuan City.

    But now, hehe, his Qi Sea is damaged, his meridians have dried up, his leg is crippled – he’s but a useless person and nothing more!

    Being ridiculed in this way, Shen Jinglin’s face doesn’t change in the slightest, as he simply looks at them coldly.

    Wang Dashi’s laughter abruptly stops, and he suddenly lets out a loud shout.

    His right hand makes a fist, and without any warning, he sends a ferocious punch towards Shen Jinglin.

    The powerful Mysterious Energy around his fist rushes forth, bringing a gust of wind that seems to tear a hole through the air.

    “Big brother Shen, quickly go! Go!”

    Fang Jingya lets out a sad and shrill wail, her body struggling desperately but she couldn’t break out from the binds.

    One after another, everyone standing around the stage shake their heads, certain that Shen Jinglin would undoubtedly die.

    In the next moment however,

    What happens astonishes the entire audience.

    Just as Wang Dashi’s earth-shattering fist strikes in front of him,

    Shen Jinglin simply lifts up a hand to resist against that powerful fist.

    Then, he raises the leg that was supposedly injured and crippled.

    The breath of a majestic Mysterious Energy surges up from under his calf–

    A sudden kick!

    With a bang, Wang Dashi’s stout body directly flies out and knocks against the guardrails on the platform.

    The acute pain coursing through his chest is making his features twist up, and he lets out a pained groan.

    Just a moment ago, at the instant when Shen Jinglin kicked him, he seemed to hear the sound of his own breastbone shattering.

    In a split second, the entire audience goes quiet.

    All of them are struck dumb.

    This… what is going on?

    Isn’t Shen Jinglin a waste?

    Didn’t his Qi Sea break, didn’t he completely lose his cultivation?

    Then what was the Mysterious Energy that had just rushed out of his foot?!

    Zhao Chunming has a listless face, his eyes fixedly staring at the man who he thought has been ruined already.

    Shen Jinglin doesn’t spare a glance to Wang Dashi, the latter no longer able to get up from where he is.

    He slowly moves towards Zhao Chunming instead.

    This time, his strides are surprisingly normal, without the slightest hint of a limp.

    The powerful pressure diffusing out from his entire body is making Zhao Chunming tremble uncontrollably.

    “You… how is this possible?!”

    Zhao Chunming incredulously says: “Aren’t you already a waste? Aren’t you a cripple without any cultivation? Why… why…”

    He couldn’t finish his shocked remarks.

    Shen Jinglin abruptly grabs him by the collar.

    Then a huge fist that is covered in thick Mysterious Energy firmly pounds against his face.

    With a loud smash, Zhao Chunming’s nose directly caves in.

    The sound of his nasal bone shattering into small pieces still seems to be ringing  in his ears.

    Following immediately is a terrible piercing pain, making Zhao Chunming squeal out like a dying pig.

    Shen Jinglin doesn’t let him go.

    He sends a foot to Zhao Chunming’s chest, kicking him straight out.

    Then he ruthlessly steps on the other.

    There’s another crackling sound, and Zhao Chunming’s ribs break under his foot.

    “Aaah–!!” a shrill, blood-curdling screech, and everyone on the scene shudders from a chill.

    The eyes that they’re using to look at Shen Jinglin are filled with shock and awe.

    Suddenly, a man lets out a cry of surprise, “This pressure, this… this doesn’t belong to a Profound Stage peak, but to an Earth Stage!!”

    “Not only is Shen Jinglin not a cripple, but instead… instead he has turned into an Earth Stage expert!”

    As soon as these words are said, the whole audience goes into an uproar.

EMHS – ch270

Chapter 270: Denouncement through tears of blood

    However, Zhao Chunming doesn’t have the slightest bit of fear, laughing heartily instead, “Shen Jinglin, sure enough, you came. You really have such a deep relationship with your old lover! Even if you’re already a waste now, you’d still drag your crippled leg and rush over to save her, hahaha!”

    Hearing Zhao Chunming say this,

    The surrounding people immediately notice that this man is indeed walking with a limp, his strides don’t seem too nimble.

    Soon after, there’s someone who takes a quick look and recognizes him.

    “Ah, isn’t this the Shen family’s young master, the one that became a waste a year ago?”

    “Right, right! It’s really the Shen family’s young master, he originally had a peak Profound Stage cultivation. But in the end, his cultivation was scrapped and even his leg got crippled, Shen Jinglin!”

    “What’s he doing here?”

    Zhao Chunming could hear everyone’s discussion down there, and the smile on his face becomes increasingly sinister and arrogant: “Everyone, there’s something that you don’t know!”

    “Although this Fang Jingya is my female slave, I originally wanted to treat her well, and give her the status of a small concubine. Who would have imagined that this slut is actually a fickle woman with no sense of shame, that she openly consorted with her old lover, Shen Jinglin.”

    “Why would I continue keeping this kind of shameless bitch? Since she wanted a man this much, this young master will properly help her get what she wants! But I didn’t expect that today, this bitch’s old sweetheart would actually come running. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Shen-dashao, you really are affectionate and true!”

    When he said these words,

    To say nothing of those nauseatingly vulgar men, even just those who enjoy watching the bustling scene, even the people who were sympathetic to Fang Jingya before – all of them show a despising expression.

    A woman that doesn’t abide by the proper conduct of women.

    A man who fools around with a married woman, simply has no sense of shame!

    Fang Jingya still wasn’t so worked up when her clothes were getting torn off.

    It’s at this moment that she can’t help but yell out, almost to a shriek, “Zhao Chunming, you animal, you mustn’t talk rubbish and slander Shen big brother! At that time, you clearly said that you’ll marry me as your wife, but after I passed through the door, every day, you would beat me or curse me. You even used me… used me as a gift to that old eunuch, letting him abuse and humiliate me…”

    “Zhao Chunming, you’re simply not human, you’re a devil! An animal! I, Fang Jinya, my ultimate regret in this life is getting myself deceived to marry you… Shen big brother and I, we simply ran into each other a few days ago, where could we be improper… you mustn’t spit blood*!”

  • mud-slinging; slander

    Hearing Fang Jingya’s denouncement, almost weeping blood,

    Shen Jinglin, who had just stepped on the platform, gets stunned in place.

    He looks at the woman who is tied at the wooden stake, and his eyes burst with raging flames of fury.

    That day, at their chance encounter on the street, he knew that Fang Jingya wasn’t living well.

    But he simply didn’t expect that she actually spent her days as worse than dogs or pigs.

    There’s also an uproar from the crowd below.

    That’s because Fang Jingya’s appearance is indeed too miserable, and each word of her denouncement is through tears and blood. People can’t help but want to believe her.

    Zhao Chunming wrinkles his brows, and he immediately turns to his guard, Wang Dashi. He commands: “I order you, as long as you beat Shen Jinglin within an inch of his life, not kill him but let him fall into my hands, then this woman is yours.”

    Wang Dashi licks his lips as he sends Fang Jingya a leering glance. With large strides, he immediately walks up before Shen Jinglin.

    “Shen-dashao went up on stage, you want to take the challenge so you can win this female slave?”

    Wang Dashi’s voice rumbles, brimming with disdain, “It’s just, I’m afraid a waste like Shen-dashao won’t be able to handle even a finger from me. Tch… it’s making me too embarrassed to start!”
