Chapter 493: She has Di Ming Jue
 
    Furthermore, unlike the last time they saw each other, those ugly white patches on Shi Lanling’s face have already completely disappeared.
 
    Her appearance is even more beautiful than before the White Jade Purple Frost Powder.
 
    Seeing Muyan, Shi Lanling clenches her teeth, killing intent from bitter resentment filling up her eyes.
 
    But Muyan doesn’t even deign to spare a peripheral glance to her, opting instead to fix all her attention towards the masked person who’s completely wrapped from head to toe.
 
     This individual slowly makes their way out of the Ghost Wind Valley, and that cold and gloomy atmosphere from inside the Valley seem to twist around the person’s body.
 
    This makes the initially strange and malicious breath become even more sickening.
 
    “I’ve long looked forward to meeting you, distinguished Enchantress of Medicine. This humble one is Ban Yue City’s Ghost King, Liu Se.”
 
    Liu Se–!!
 
    Muyan’s pupils suddenly contract.
 
    Could she be that “Liu Se” that Muyan had heard of in her previous life?
 
    She truly didn’t expect that Gong Qianxue’s hands had actually stretched out this far already.
 
    Not just Jing Cheng Country, even Huang Yao’s Ghost City has entered into her pocket as well.
 
    So apparently, this time’s “Treating the Ghost Lord” is probably the real trap.
 
    Muyan slowly narrows her eyes, subconsciously holding out a hand, wanting to grab something.
 
    Had she only been by herself right now, she wouldn’t be afraid.
 
    But Xiao Bao is inside her Space.
 
    In case something bad happens to her, Xiao Bao would surely be exposed before people, and he will come to harm.
 
    This is something she will never allow even if she dies.
 
    This small hand that had reached out in panic is suddenly held by a warm, large grasp.
 
    A man’s body slowly draws near, and his deep and low voice is almost imperceptible as it reaches her ears, “Don’t be afraid, Yanyan.”
 
    “I am always by your side.”
 
    As soon as his voice falls, Liu Se’s form immediately goes stiff, she even recoils a step back.
 
    A pair of cold, harsh eyes dart between Muyan and Di Ming Jue.
 
   They show a tint of alarmed suspicion and restraining fear.
 
    The body pressing up against her is making Muyan have a clear awareness of Di Ming Jue’s body temperature, his heartbeat, as well as his unique and incomparable scent.
 
    That small bit of uneasiness that remains in her heart, at this moment, it fades away and disappears.
 
    That’s right!
 
    She still has Di Ming Jue.
 
    Xiao Bao and her, they also have Di Ming Jue.
 
    Immediately after, her thoughts abruptly come to a halt. She becomes a little annoyed, and somewhat absent-minded.
 
    Just when did she start to become so trusting of this man, becoming so dependent on him?
 
    Indeed, she already swore that in this life, what’s most important is only Xiao Bao and vengeance.
 
    Before she’s finished with revenge, in no way could she be infected with such an unstable factor like feelings!
 
    Muyan takes a deep breath, and breaks away from Di Ming Jue’s hand, resuming her usual languid calm.
 
    As this is her enmity-!
 
    Of course, she must avenge it herself!
 
    The corners of her mouth rise up to a shallow arc, “The way Ghost City shows it’s warm welcome, time and time again, is to disregard my good faith, and play me for a fool? This way of expressing how you ‘long looked forward to meet me’, my humble self couldn’t afford it. What Shenshu, what cooperation, I think it’s better to forget about it from here on out!”
 
    Saying that, she moves to walk away.
 
    Liu Se never thought that she would just leave this simply.
 
    Her brows couldn’t help but crease, “Wait!”
 
    Liu Se quickly opens her mouth to call for Muyan to stop, “Today’s issue is of my Ghost Wind Valley’s incompetence in handling matters, yet I ask that Miss Jun mustn’t take offense. Your name was accidentally deleted by Shi-xianzi. Shi-xianzi, why are you still idling about, hurry and apologize to Miss Jun.”
 
    “You’re making me apologize to this… apologize to her?!” Shi Lanling screeches out incredulously.
 
    However, Liu Se’s eerie and callous gaze sweeps over to her.
 
    Shi Lanling’s complexion turns white, showing a look of obvious fear.

Chapter 492: Another Misunderstanding
 
    “Don’t tell me you guys don’t know who she is?” Magistrate Liu reproachfully says, “Ghost City’s newly-named Shenshu-daren, Tianyuan City’s Enchantress of Medicine who [Stymies the Underworld from Seizing Life], the one you’ve all been hearing of, you guys don’t know?!”
 
     “Enchantress of Medicine?!!” the first one who cries out is Dr. Wang, “You-you’re that Enchantress from Tianyuan City, who is said to be capable of regrowing dead flesh and bones?!”
 
    That’s right! This girl’s method and level of medicine just now, wasn’t it precisely to regrow dead flesh and bones?
 
    Magistrate Liu ignores him and continues to say: “Even if you haven’t heard of the Enchantress’ name, I presume you should’ve heard of the Godly Apothecary before? The finest draughts sold in Ghost City these days, most of them are refined by this Miss Jun. Have you all eaten bear hearts and leopard guts? Actually daring to doubt her identity, even daring to stop her outside?”
 
    “If you delay the Ghost Lord’s treatment, even if you have ten lives, I’m afraid that they wouldn’t be enough to compensate!”
 
    As this was said, Dr. Wang’s body sways and he falls to sit on the ground with a thud.
 
    Each of those Valley guards are even more frightened, their complexions turning deathly pale as they all sink to their knees.
 
    How could they have expected it?
 
    That Enchantress of Medicine who could regrow dead flesh and bones.
 
    That Godly Apothecary who refines the draughts that are sold in the Ghost City for an extremely high price.
 
    That it would actually be this girl in front of their eyes, who appears no more than eighteen or nineteen years old.
 
    Listening to Magistrate Liu’s incessant fawning and blabbing, and watching as the guards repeatedly kowtow to beg for forgiveness-
 
    Muyan looks indifferent.
 
    She lightly pats off the grime and blood that have stained her hands.
 
    The blood has dried up and she couldn’t pat it off. Just as she’s about to give up,
 
    Someone suddenly grabs her hand and wraps it with a soft wet cloth, gently wiping.
 
    Very quickly, the blood has been wiped clean.
 
    Muyan subconsciously raises her head, looking at that cold and handsome face of Di Ming Jue.
 
    To her surprise, as she makes contact with the man’s eyes, she couldn’t see beneath their depths.
 
    For they are filled with her own reflected image.
 
    Muyan’s heart jumps, and she unconsciously pulls her hands back. It takes her quite a while to calm her own mind.
 
    She softly coughs to cover up her drumming heartbeat.
 
    Turning towards Magistrate Liu with a cynic gaze, “I just want to know one thing. This guard said that I’m not in the list of invited doctors. May I ask if the Ghost City doesn’t wish to work with me from now on? Or does the Ghost City have any complaints with me?”
 
    “Since there are some gripes about me, it would be better that we don’t force ourselves to work together.”
 
    Saying that, she turns around with hardly any reluctance, “Then ‘till we meet again- oh, wrong. We probably wouldn’t anymore!”
 
    “No, no, no, Miss Jun, it’s not like this! Please listen to me, this is a misunderstanding, really just a misunderstanding!”
 
    Muyan acts like she wants to leave, like there’s no room to save the situation this time.
 
    Right at this moment however, she hears a hoarse voice.
 
    “Please stay, Enchantress of Medicine!”
 
    Muyan stops on her tracks, slowly turning towards it.
 
    Not far from them, an individual slowly makes their way over. The whole body is completely wrapped up, and the face is covered with a mask, that one couldn’t tell if it’s man or a woman.
 
    As this person comes near, Muyan’s heart rises up in warning.
 
    Her instinctive reaction to crisis is tightening every nerve on her body.
 
    This person is very strong!
 
    With an even higher cultivation than her.
 
    More than that, this kind of strength is emphatically not just from reaching the peak of Precelestial cultivation.
 
     It’s more because of a certain, suspicious and sinister breath coming out from the person’s body.
 
    This kind of breath is somewhat similar to that Enforcer Li from before, the Poison Man that Qian Qing made.
 
    But this is far stronger than Enforcer Li.
 
    Following behind this person, wearing an elegant goose yellow clothing, Shi Lanling flutters with the air of a fairy.

Chapter 491: Pig Teammate
 
    “You… what are you playing at?!” Dr. Wang shrieks, “My hand is severed, you people cut it off, how could it possible be healed? I’ve been practicing medicine for decades, and I’ve never so much as heard of such a medical technique! She-devil, release me at once!”
 
    But Muyan no longer pays attention to him.
 
    Instead, she aligns the palm with the wrist, takes out needle and thread, and begins to sew them up.
 
    “Aaaaargh–!”
 
    Conscious and without anesthesia- muscles, veins, and skin are sewn together. One simply couldn’t use words to describe this kind of pain.
 
    The entire Ghost Wind Valley echoes with Dr. Wang’s miserable, pig-like, blood-curdling howls.
 
    Later, it reaches the point where he couldn’t scream out at all.
 
    Only the sound of pleas remain, “This old man is wrong, I was wrong, please let me go… it hurts… it hurts, it’s really too much for me, wuuu…”
 
    Just at that time, Muyan finally cuts the excess thread and reveals a satisfied smile, “All right, suture complete.”
 
    Each and every one of the Valley guards are green-faced from horror and shock. Coming to their senses, “You… you don’t really think that sewing together severed limbs like that is already considered a medical procedure, do you?”
 
    Muyan slowly raises her eyes.
 
    Flipping a wrist, a porcelain bottle appears on her hand.
 
    She slowly pours out the medicine from the bottle unto Dr. Wang’s hand.
 
    Soon after, the scene that takes place renders them dumbstruck.
 
    They watch as that bloody wound on Dr. Wang’s hand, which is stitched together with some thread, actually begins to fuse and heal at a speed visible to the naked eye.
 
    As Muyan pours the draught, she removes the thread from the stitches.
 
    After a number of breaths, only a scar, which seems rather like a centipede, remains on Dr. Wang’s wrist.
 
    Dr. Wang’s eyes go wide, incredulously looking at his own hand.
 
    Subsequently, he subconsciously moves his fingers.
 
    “Aaah, they move! The fingers move!”
 
    “How… how could this be?! How could a disconnected palm be sewn back, and how could it just be just as good as before?!”
 
    Dr. Wang is overwhelmed with shock as he looks at Muyan, then he looks at his own hand again.
 
    There still seems to be some remnants of that awful pain on his wrist.
 
    But as he moves his fingers, he truly, genuinely feels the existence of his own hand.
 
    Moreover, along with the passage of time, his awareness of this hand is getting stronger and stronger.
 
    It’s as if he’s never seen it fall off.
 
    “Im… impossible… in this world, how can there be such a medical procedure?”
 
    Furthermore, the one who had used this technique is… is a girl who’s still under twenty.
 
    Dr. Wang raises his head, fixedly staring at Muyan, his voice trembling, “You… who exactly are you?”
 
    “Shenshu-daren, you’re here! Why do you stand there and not come in?”
 
    From within the Ghost Wind Valley, they hear the sound of an old man yelling in pleasant surprise.
 
    With large strides, Magistrate Liu comes up to welcome them. Hands held in front, he repeatedly bows towards Muyan, inviting her to enter. He looks indescribably respectful and ingratiating.
 
    “Shen… Shenshu?” every one of the Valley guards are quite dumbfounded.
 
    They know what the ‘Shenshu’ signifies.
 
    However, it’s already been a long, long time that the Ghost City is without a Shenshu.
 
    How could they suddenly have one today?
 
    And it’s even such a young girl?
 
    “Magistrate Liu, just who is this girl in the end…?” finally, there’s a guard who couldn’t help but say, “She has an invitation card, but there’s no record of her name here, that’s why we didn’t dare let her in.”
 
    “Imbecile!!” hearing what the guard said, Magistrate Liu wishes he could just thrash this pig teammate number two.
 
    As if it wasn’t enough to have Xu Fu in the Ghost City-
 
    Now, how is it that even these Ghost Wind Valley guards as all so unreliable?

Chapter 490: A demonstration for you
 
    Faced with such a battle, even for a Heaven Stage master-
 
    It wouldn’t be possible to gain the upper hand.
 
    However, the smug expressions still haven’t fully settled on the faces Dr. Wang and his medicine boy, when their faces go stiff all of a sudden.
 
    Bam bam bam!
 
    One after another, they hear the sounds of fist and flesh hitting each other, as well as the shrieks and screams of men.
 
    One, two, three… ten… twenty… 
 
    A brief tea time later.
 
    Those fierce and fearsome guards of the Ghost Wind Valley sprawl face-down on the ground, not one of them could get up.
 
    Moreover, only one person mowed them down.
 
    It’s that delicate and pretty youngster in black, Ying Mei!
 
    “You… just who are you people?!”
 
    One of the Valley’s guards issues an indignant question, pinched in his hand is a signal flare he wants to fire.
 
    “Didn’t I say? I’m a doctor who was invited to come and treat the Ghost Lord’s illness.”
 
    Muyan slowly steps forward, chuckling as she looks at the Valley’s guards.
 
    Her countenance is exquisite and extraordinarily beautiful, smile lovely and brilliant, befuddling the guards for a moment.
 
    Soon after, a guard promptly yells out: “No… impossible! The people that are invited to come and treat the Ghost Lord, they are all outstanding and well-known senior doctors and apothecaries on Yanwu Continent. You’re just a young girl, how could possibly have that kind of consummate medical expertise?”
 
    “You doubt my medical expertise?”
 
    Muyan scoffs, turns to Dr. Wang, and curls a finger to beckon, “Then why don’t I make a demonstration right here, so you can take a good look.”
 
    At this time, Dr. Wang has his heart welling up with pure fear.
 
    He turns around and tries to run.
 
    Before he could run two paces, however,
 
    He’s subjected to what seems like a pull of an invisible force.
 
    He moves backwards in spite of himself.
 
    There’s an expression of alarm on his face, “She-devil, what did you do? Why… why can’t I control my body?”
 
    Muyan, who initially wanted to grab the guy back herself, turns her head to look at the man standing beside her.
 
    She can’t help but raise her lips up in a smile.
 
    Dr. Wang sees that he couldn’t struggle and get away at all, and a vicious expression suddenly appears on his face.
 
    All of a sudden, he whips around.
 
    Lifting his left hand up, a green light flares inside his firmly clenched fist.
 
    A cry rises up from his mouth, “She-devil, die!”
 
    Hand raised, the green powder, carrying a fishy smell along with it, diffuse everywhere.
 
    But at the same time, Dr. Wang also howls in pain.
 
    His hand, which was holding the green powder, has actually been severed just below his wrist.
 
   Falling to the ground, the hand gets smeared with blood and dirt. But it’s still twitching a bit, appearing particularly grisly.
 
    Clutching where his hand was cut, Dr. Wang ceaselessly rolls about on the ground, letting out miserable shrieks like a dying pig.
 
    Muyan unhurriedly walks over, picks up that severed hand, and comes before Dr. Wang.
 
    Those Valley guards are also frightened by this scene, their complexions turning green and pale.
 
    “What… what exactly do you want to do? Behaving atrociously at my Ghost Wind Valley, aren’t you afraid of the Ghost City’s death warrant?”
 
    Muyan tilts her head a bit, smiling naturally, her voice sweet and pleasant: “Weren’t you guys questioning whether I have the capability to treat the Ghost Lord? I’m thinking of proving it to you.”
 
    Saying that, she grabs the palm of Dr. Wang’s severed hand.
 
    She the gathers that hand, dripping with blood, up from the ground, and sticks it to the open wound.
 
    “What… what are you doing?” Dr. Wang comes to, bearing the sharp pain as he yells, “Stop messing around! You’ve already been exposed to my [Heart Piercing Powder]. Without the antidote, you’ll die without a burial site!”
 
    Muyan slightly raises her brows, with a mockery of a smile, she says: “Dr. Wang could really crack a joke. My person injured you, and I also feel very sorry about it. So now, why don’t I heal you up?”

Chapter 489: Pretense
 
    Even though her appearance is beautiful beyond compare, no matter how you look, she’s only an eighteen or nineteen year old girl.
 
    How is possible for her to be some famous doctor or apothecary?
 
    Such a person would dare to come to the Ghost Wind Valley to treat the Ghost Lord’s illness?  It is to vie for the Secret Method of Pill Condensation?
 
    Wouldn’t that be a joke?
 
    “Dr. Wang, please come in!” after the guard checks the the old man’s invitation card, he immediately hands it back respectfully, making a gesture invite him in.
 
    Taking the card back, Dr. Wang doesn’t go in right away, opting to look at Muyan in ridicule instead.
 
    He doesn’t believe that anyone in their group is qualified to come and treat the Ghost Lord.
 
    It must be known, that among the famous doctors of Yanwu Continent, he himself is already considered young.
 
    When he made his name, he had already been about forty years old as well.
 
    But in the next moment, Dr. Wang’s eyes widen with some measure of shock.
 
    That’s because the beautiful girl, whom he thought is the most unlikely one to be a doctor, actually takes out an invitation card that is exactly the same as the one in his hand.
 
    How… how is this possible?
 
    An eighteen/nineteen-year-old girl could actually be a famous doctor invited by the Ghost City?
 
    While he’s shocked, he suddenly hears the guard produce a soft sound of surprise.
 
    “This Miss Jun, apologies. Though there’s no problem with your invitation card, I don’t seem to have your name written here on the doctors invitation list.”
 
    Hearing what the guard said, Muyan raises her brows in surprise.
 
    “Ha… I don’t know which bumpkins have come, but to actually dare to pretend to be a senior doctor, do they think that the Ghost Wind Valley is just like any other place? Want to come in so just come in? A bunch of idiots!”
 
    The medicine boy by Dr. Wang’s side could see that his family’s Master doesn’t like Muyan’s group.
 
    Seeing their identities invalidated by the the guard, he immediately snorts out loud.
 
    Hearing what was said, Dr. Wang places both hands behind him, his face haughty as he says: “This old man was just wondering how the people of the Ghost City could be so stupid, unexpectedly inviting such silly little girl that’s still wet behind the ears, to come and treat the Ghost King. As it turns out, it’s a shameless fraud!”
 
    “Humph, how can they have an invitation card, knowing that this Ghost City invitation is only for, at least, senior level doctors of Xuan Medical Pavillion.”
 
    That medicine boy speaks while looking Muyan up and down. Seeing her flawless countenance, he couldn’t help but reveal a vulgar smile, “Master, maybe this woman is some respected doctor’s ** and furnace, so she only has an invitation on her hand, but no name registered…”
 
    Before he could finish what he’s saying, a figure suddenly appears in front of him.
 
    They hear two snaps.
 
    Two great slaps hit him on the face. He lets out a miserable shriek, suddenly spurting out a mouthful of foamy blood with broken teeth.
 
    Not knowing when, Ying Mei has already arrived in front of him.
 
    A sharp blade unsheathed, she slowly brushes it by his neck, “Wash your mouth! Believe it or not, I’ll cut your tongue off.”
 
    “Guards! Guards! What are you all doing just staring about?!” Dr. Wang abruptly comes back to his senses, immediately raving in hysteria, “This group of people forged an invitation card, pretended to be a doctor, and are now raising their hands here at the Ghost Wind Valley’s boundary, don’t tell me you people won’t handle this?”
 
    The guards’ faces turn cold, and it’s at this moment that they react and come over. To their surprise, Ying Mei is already starting in front of them.
 
    They don’t even see Ying Mei’s movements clearly.
 
    “Altogether, everyone, grab them!”
 
    “Bring them to the Ghost King for punishment!!”
 
    With a harsh shout, dozens of the Ghost Wind Valley guards rush out, seeming to appear out of nowhere.
 
    Each of them are at the level of Earth Stage peak or higher.
 
    Dreadful pressure oozes out from the entrance of the Ghost Wind Valley, making people feel terrified.

Chapter 488: The Lady’s decree
 
    “Miss–!!” at this, Ru Yan and the others really go into a panic, “Miss, we won’t dissuade you from going anymore! But you must take us along with you!”
 
    Nevertheless, Muyan’s stance is decisive, directly ushering the people to go out.
 
    But just as she shuts the door and turns around, she is gathered into an embrace.
 
    A man’s familiar breath assaults her senses.
 
    “Can Ben Jun come along with Muyan?”
 
    Muyan tilts her head up and casts him a sidelong glance, “Can I stop you?”
 
    This time, Di Ming Jue doesn’t take take advantage of the situation to flirt.
 
    Instead, he stares deeply at her, unhurriedly saying: “When you have any desire that you wish to accomplish, Ben Jun can help you reach it.”
 
    “If you have anyone you want to kill, Ben Jun can help you kill.”
 
    “Anything, whatever you want, even the moon in the heavens, Ben Jun will pluck it down for you.”
 
    “But there’s only one thing that I’ll never allow.”
 
    Di Ming Jue hooks her chin, urging her to slowly tilt her head up, “Muyan, you have to make sure that you will not allow yourself to be harmed, and never ever disappear from my life.”
 
    Muyan dazedly stares at the blue eyes that are closing in, and she feels as if her very soul is being sucked inside.
 
    The man’s resolute and decisive voice is just like a vow, like spell that lingers in her ears.
 
    It makes her heart fall a little deeper, unable get herself out.
 
    It’s only a good while later that she comes back to her senses, then a faint smile rises up at the corners of her lips.
 
    “Di Ming Jue, this is my grudge. Of course I have to exact it myself, no one else is allowed to intervene, not even you. Understand?”
 
    The man stares deeply at her, then he lowers his head and indulgently kisses her upturned jade nose.
 
    “If my Lady decrees it, Ben Jun wouldn’t dare”
 
    Scoundrel, who is your Lady!
 
    Can you stop getting more proficient!
 
    ===
 
    Ghost Wind Valley, located at the common border of Huang Yao and Jing Cheng.
 
    It isn’t a part of Huang Yao, nor does it belong to Jing Cheng.
 
    In the strictest sense, it doesn’t even belong to the Ghost City.
 
    For this area is incomparably sinister, frightening, but also mysterious.
 
    In the past, only the highest ranked Ghost Kings were able to enter and exit this place safely.
 
    However, even though the Ghost Wind Valley is such a dreadful place-
 
    The doctors and apothecaries who have come to treat the Ghost Lord’s illness are still too many to count.
 
    The reason, is that the reward which the Ghost City offers is something that makes everyone, those who study medicine and refine drugs, absolutely unable to refuse.
 
    –The Secret Method of Condensing Pills!
 
    Thinking of this reward, Muyan couldn’t help quirking her lips up into a cynical arc.
 
    While writing this invitation down, Shi Lanling was thinking that even if she knows it’s a trap, Muyan will definitely jump in still.
 
    Perhaps it’s precisely because of this reward?
 
    Shi Lanling probably thinks that she still couldn’t do alchemy.
 
    And she wants to obtain the Secret Method of Pill Condensation no matter what.
 
    As Muyan arrives at the entrance of the Ghost Wind Valley, it’s right when an old man with grizzled hair and beard is taking out his invitation card, letting the Valley’s guard check it.
 
    Looking over from the entrance, there’s a dense fog within the Ghost Wind Valley.
 
    At a closer distance, one could even sense wisps and strands of bone-chillingly frigid wind.
 
    As soon as Muyan nears the entrance, she feels a vigilant gaze come over.
 
    But she only sees that old man looking up and down, sizing up Muyan’s party of four. Soon after, he shows a suspicious look, “You guys are also doctors that are invited to consult the Ghost Lord’s illness?”
 
    Although he posed it as a question, he couldn’t hide the disdain in his eyes.
 
    Indeed, the four of them – Muyan, Di Ming Jue, Han Ye and Ying Mei – none of them fits the image of a doctor.
 
    From head to foot, Di Ming Jue has converged his breath, making people unconsciously overlook his existence.
 
    Han Ye and Ying Mei also appear to be just ordinary, good-looking, young men.
 
    Not to mention Muyan.

Chapter 487: Jun Shang, your integrity
 
    It’s only after a long time that he slowly speaks: “Since this is… a matter that my Lady wants to look after, Ben Jun will naturally come along. Moreover, Ghost City was founded by my Polar Domain, and it is therefore of my concern. How can I disregard it?”
 
     That said, he turns to Han Ye, “Since you don’t want anything to do with it, there’s no use for you to stay here. It’s better for you to go to Di Yuan’s Purgatory Pool and receive punishment!”
 
    Han Ye’s eyes immediately go wide, simply unable to believe his own ears.
 
     Goddammit, ‘he’ doesn’t want to do anything with it?!
 
    Isn’t it that, as an Immortal of the upper bound, Jun Shang must not participate in mortal affairs?
 
    When he was talking just a moment ago, wasn’t Jun Shang giving tacit approval?
 
    Why is it that Miss Muyan only said a line about wanting to meddle, and you immediately change your mind!
 
    Even selling out Han Ye so thoroughly.
 
    Jun Shang, what about your integrity?!
 
    More importantly, who exactly did he provoke and anger ah! Why is he always the one that gets harmed!
 
    ===
 
    The state of affairs in the Ghost City is very strange.
 
    A Ghost King clearly died, but the entire Wangjiang Ghost City is still operating normally.
 
    It’s as if they’re not affected at all.
 
    Even the herbs that Muyan wanted, as well as the gold coins from selling the special grade draughts – all of them were delivered in a very timely fashion.
 
    What concerns Muyan more is that-
 
    Magistrate Qin, and the others who stood on her side to defend Muyan that day on the Ghost City, there’s no trace of them these days.
 
    She went to ask that white-bearded Magistrate Liu, but he only said that they’ve been sent somewhere to carry out some tasks.
 
    There’s another matter that even more intractable.
 
    Han Ye and the others couldn’t contact the Ghost Lord, neither could they find any traces of him.
 
    Just when Muyan is contemplating how she should start destroying Gong Qianxue’s annex of the Ghost City, she receives a letter of invitation.
 
    “Ghost Wind Valley?” hearing this name, a dramatic change comes over the faces of Ru Yan and Old Tao.
 
    Even Yan Haotian and Feng Haitang are showing worried expressions.
 
    “Miss, you absolutely mustn’t go to the Ghost Wind Valley!” Ru Yan exclaims, “Even though Old Tao and I have never been to that place, we do know that it is a forbidden area of the Ghost City. Aside the Ghost City’s higher ups, when other people go in there, absolutely none of them come out alive.”
 
    Feng Haitang adds: “I’ve also heard about the Ghost Wind Valley. Once in the past, there were nineteen Precelestials who attacked the Ghost Wind Valley at the same time. Later, nineteen went in, but only one came out alive in the end, and that one also went insane.”
 
    “Miss, if you want to stop Gong Qianxue from taking over the Ghost City, there are plenty of ways, but you definitely don’t need to go and take this kind of risk. What’s more, Shi Lanling, she is also in the Ghost Wind Valley. That woman’s status in the Ghost City is so high, and she hates you so much, Miss. In the Valley, she would have surely set up a trap that’s waiting for you!”
 
    Listening to the people eagerly dissuading,
 
    Muyan nevertheless looks relaxed and nonchalant.
 
    She stretches out a hand to pick up the invitation, reading it through once more.
 
    The contents of the invitation is very simple.
 
    Ghost City’s Ghost Lord is seriously ill, so they’re inviting all the famous doctors under the heaven to set out for the Ghost Wind Valley, and treat the Ghost Lord’s illness.
 
    If he is cured, Ghost City will heavily compensate.
 
    The invitation is signed by two individuals – one is the Ghost City’s Shi-xianzi, Shi Lanling; the other is Huang Yao’s Ghost King.
 
    Muyan knows of course, that for Shi Lanling to invite her, she definitely has some bad intentions.
 
    However, her patience has run thin.
 
    Shi Lanling, this woman has been plotting against her over and over again.
 
    She’s really sick of it.
 
    This time’s invitation, in addition to treating the Ghost Lord’s illness, it would accordingly allow her to explore the Ghost City’s real situation, as well as Gong Qianxue’s schemes.
 
    How could she not go?
 
    “Well, everyone, say no more- I’ve decided to go to the Ghost Wind Valley! But as you’ve all said, the place is too dangerous. Your company would instead drag my feet back, so this time, I’m going by myself!”
