Chapter 461: These belong to Niangqin and Xiao Bao
 
     “Oh well, seeing as you’ve reminded me over and over again, I will let you try the Elixirs refined using [Winnow], and see how they taste!”
 
    ……
 
    Very late at night, the entire courtyard is extremely quiet.
 
    Xiao Bao is on the bed by himself, in deep sleep.
 
    All of a sudden, his tiny nose twitches, and he slowly opens his eyes, a soft mumble in his mouth: “Smells good?”
 
    Just what is it? How could it smell so sweet?
 
    He gets up from the bed, only to discover that there’s no one in the room.
 
    Neither Niangqin nor that lecher is present.
 
    Yet the source of the fragrance is clearly inside the room.
 
    Xiao Bao seems to think of something, then his figure disappears, and comes into the Space.
 
    In an instant, a fragrance that’s infinitely stronger than earlier assaults his senses.
 
    This aroma is really too strong, too tempting, to the point that Xiao Bao feels like his tummy seems to growl, and it’s as if his blood burns and boils from hunger.
 
    Looking up, Xiao Bao sees a huge Pill Furnace on a not-so-distant patch of grass, with a blazing flame inside it.
 
    That tempting smell comes from within that furnace.
 
    What’s strange, is that there’s no one beside the the Pill Furnace that’s controlling the Dan Fire, but the fire is burning very vigorously.
 
    He hears a mellifluous and beautiful zither sound.
 
    Xiao Bao turns around, and sees his beloved mother sitting in front of the Tian Mo Qin, unhurriedly strumming its strings.
 
    With the movement of the strings, the medicinal fragrance becomes even richer, and all the more appetizing to his heart and soul.
 
    At the side, the fat rabbits mung bean eyes are already flashing red.
 
    Greedily staring at the Pill Furnace, itching to just pounce on it.
 
    So much so that it’s not even aware that its Little Master has come in, when he’s usually the fat rabbit’s favorite.
 
    “Niangqin–!” Xiao Bao lowly calls out, looking at Muyan with his eyes filled with adoration.
 
    Niangqin is really the best!
 
    That ugly old aunt also said that niangqin couldn’t do alchemy.
 
    But not only could she do alchemy, she could even refine the best of the best Elixirs in the world!
 
    Xiao Bao twitches his nose, and a trace of hunger appears in his eyes.
 
    He also really wants to eat it!
 
    The sound of the zither eventually falls and comes to an end, and the Dan Fire in the Furnace gradually dies out with the dissipating music.
 
    Soon after, they hear a loud bang.
 
    The cover of the Pill Furnace flies out by itself.
 
    It’s immediately followed by a medicinal fragrance that’s a hundred times richer, and more mellow, than it was just a moment ago.
 
    Muyan stands up from the Tian Mo Qin, looking a little pale.
 
    Then she only sees flashes in front of her, two shadows: one blue, one white. They fly past before her eyes, like arrows leaving their bows.
 
    They land on the Pill Furnace.
 
    After that, Muyan witnesses a scene that renders her speechless.
 
    She watches as her darling son – who’s always been calm, controlled, and mature – gather all the Elixirs in the Pill furnace into his arms.
 
    Glaring at the fat rabbit, he uses an ice-cold voice to enunciate: “These belong to Niangqin and Xiao Bao!”
 
    Across from him, the fat rabbit looks aggrieved and imploring, as well as restless – like it couldn’t wait to snatch a Pill from Xiao Bao’s hands.
 
     Muyan suddenly laughs despite herself.
 
    It’s actually common for other children to take food and fight over things.
 
    But her baby has never shown this adorable and childish side before.
 
    Muyan walks over and picks Xiao Bao up. Kissing his soft and tender cheeks, “Baby, why are you awake?”
 
    Xiao Bao immediately gives the Elixirs to Muyan like he’s presenting a treasure, “Niangqin, eat!”
 
    He has always possessed a strange talent in intuition.
 
    He could tell when something is precious, and whether or not a weapon is strong.
 
    At this very moment, Xiao Bao only feels that these five Elixirs in his hands only appear ordinary and unremarkable on the surface.

Chapter 460: Unlocking new skills
     This strange and fantastic power – it begins to stir within her, then it becomes as overwhelming as to overturn seas and rivers.
    That is… Spiritual Power!!
    In her previous life, she used up about thirty years, suffered through the thunder tribulations, and was finally able to pry a little bit of its surface.
    But what about in this life?
    On her lower abdomen, in a point next to her Qi Sea, a majestic power begins to surge.
    Then it spreads little by little, flowing into her meridians, and unto the hollow of her palms.
    Gentle but awe-inspiring, it brushes through the tranquil Space.
    In an instant, the soft green grassland becomes even more vibrant.
    The fat rabbit widens its eyes in excitement, unable to stop its own front paws from scratching the ground.
    That’s right, like that! Exactly like that!
    This is Spiritual Power, this is the might of the Moon Root!
    Unadorned white palms softly press themselves on the hot furnace.
    But there’s not even the slightest bit of a burning sensation.
    Muyan feels like her whole body is surrounded by a powerful and fundamentally pure energy.
    It makes her five senses become incomparably sharper.
    It also makes her body become even stronger.
    Spiritual Power passes through her palm and goes into the Pill Furnace.
    The dissolved herbs within the furnace seem to have received some sort of command, as they begin to fuse with each other, and condense at a very fast speed.
     About an hour later-
    A burst of medicinal fragrance wafts through the air and assails their noses, it makes people feel carefree and relaxed.
    The Dan Fire goes out. Muyan opens the Pill Furnace, and she sees that there’s a total of thirty Elixirs within it.
    This is a very common second grade [Recuperative Pill].
    It’s effects are relatively of little value as well – clearing internal heat, lessening inflammation, refreshing and clearing the mind.
    But Pills are Elixirs after all, and this kind of Recuperative Pill also couldn’t be purchased on the ordinary medicine halls outside.
    Place it in the Ghost City to be auctioned off, and a single one could be sold for several tens of thousands of gold coins.
    From what Muyan remembers in her past life, an alchemist can only refine this kind of second grade Elixirs a maximum of ten pieces at a time.
    Yet she has unexpectedly refined a total of thirty.
    Muyan picks up a Pill and closely examines it, a contented smile hanging on her lips.
    Now, let’s see who else would dare to say that she couldn’t do alchemy.
    She’s in a very good mood, not even minding the fat rabbit pilfering food.
    Directly losing three pieces to it.
    In the end, a scene occurs that makes her stunned.
    The fat rabbit uses its front paws to sweep those three Elixirs aside, going as far as to just throw them away, flinging the Pills to a distance.
    There’s even a disgusted expression in its mung bean eyes.
    For quite a while, Muyan couldn’t recover from the fat rabbit’s disgust.
    But this isn’t right!
    The fat rabbit has always been eager to drink the draughts that she refines.
    Why would it dislike the more valuable Elixir?
    Ding ding dong dong!
    The sound of the Tian Mo Qin suddenly enters her ears.
    Muyan turns her head, only to discover that the fat rabbit has jumped on the Tian Mo Qin without her notice, and it’s right in the middle of using its claws to persistently thrum the strings.
    There’s an impatient expression on its face.
    And in an instant, like a good idea that comes with good luck, Muyan’s mind is suddenly enlightened.
    She understands!
    The fat rabbit doesn’t want ordinary draughts or Elixirs.
    But rather those draughts and Elixirs that are refined and made with the Shen Musician techniques.
     What’s the difference between them?
    Just take a look at Chen Qingfeng, the draughts that he can refine after her guidance, and compare them with the special grade draughts that she makes herself. Look at the price difference when they are sold, and it should be very clear.
    At this moment, Muyan suddenly remembers.
    When the Tian Mo Qin was repaired, her Shen Musician skills leveled-up as well.
    There is indeed an unlocked skill that pertains to alchemy.
    [Winnow*]–!
  • separating the wheat from the chaff; getting rid of the bad and keeping the good.
    Muyan slowly makes her way to the fat rabbit’s side, and picks it up by the scruff. She has a smile that isn’t a smile.
    “Surprisingly quite heavy.”
    “I don’t see much use for you, but your mouth is very picky.”

EMHS – ch459

Chapter 459: Rabbit just wants to die
    In the end, he still restrains himself.
    Even with his frantic desire to take Jun Muyan.
    Indeed, he must obtain her body and heart, whole and complete.
    His wife, his lady, must be properly spoiled, loved, and indulged.
    He would wait, until the day comes when she would completely belong to him, and only then would he devour her into his belly.
    Di Ming Jue’s eyes darken, his voice gloomy and quiet like a whisper: “Jun Muyan, you are destined to be mine.”
    ===
    In the Space, Muyan breathes a sigh of relief after freeing herself from Di Ming Jue with some difficulty.
    However, she can’t help but tense up all over.
    She seems to have this notion that she is prey that’s being watched by some dreadful beast.
    Shaking her head, she shakes off this strange and indescribable feeling.
    Muyan’s line of sight falls on the drug ingredients she’s raked in from the Ghost City.
    In her ears, she seems to hear Shi Lanling’s words–
     “Is it possible that you think, since you can refine draughts – then you can take some drug ingredients, casually experiment, and be able to learn how to do alchemy? You’re rather too naive.”
     “If you really need an Elixir, then just tell me. I will definitely refine it for you with my own hands!”
    Muyan slowly narrows her eyes, looking very upset.
    Haha, isn’t it just alchemy?
    She simply doesn’t believe that she couldn’t do it.
    She sets up the alchemy furnace, and lights up the Dan Fire.
    One by one, she places the herbs into the Dan Furnace.
    They begin to dissolve under the stimulation of her Internal Force.
    When it’s time to condense them into Pills however, there’s some hesitation in Muyan’s movements.
    That’s because last time, she had failed right at this stage.
    While she’s hesitating, a white ball suddenly rolls over to her feet.
    The fat rabbit scrunches its head, mung bean eyes open wide and bright, excitedly fixing its attention on the Pill Furnace.
    Those eyes are filled with insatiable hunger.
    It’s as if Muyan is cooking some rare and delicious treasure.
    Muyan doesn’t think that this kind of behavior on fat rabbit is strange.
    Previously, whenever she used the skill [Spring Snow] to refine draughts,
    The fat rabbit would also often come to cadge a meal. In particular, the Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking is just the rabbit’s favorite.
    Usually, it would grab several bottles and drink them all up before Muyan could react.
    At the thought the Draughts’ price, Muyan really wishes she could turn this fat rabbit into stir-fried rabbit meat.
    So at this time, Muyan pays it no mind.
    She readies to operate her Internal Force instead, which will condense the dissolved drug ingredients.
    However, just as she’s about to pour her Internal Force into the cauldron-
    The fat rabbit heavily knocks against her.
    “Awoo!” the fat rabbit makes a howl that’s completely different from how a rabbit should sound like. As it looks at Muyan, the expression on those mung bean eyes is very much like one who hates iron for not becoming steel.
    Stupid, you have Spiritual Power, why would you still use Internal Force in alchemy!
    Using Internal Force, how could you possibly succeed in alchemy!
    Muyan is taken aback, then she abruptly comes back to her senses, “You’re saying that I won’t be able to condense a Pill this way!”
    The fat rabbit nods its fluffy white head.
    Indeed, she used Internal Force to condense Pills in the previous experiment, and she failed.
    But other than Internal Force, she doesn’t have the secret method to condense Pills – how is she supposed to do it!
    The fat rabbit almost wants to just die.
    This stupid woman, she clearly possesses a precious treasure, but it actually hasn’t occurred to her to use Spiritual Power.
    That’s the Moon Root, that Moon Spiritual Root ah! Is there anything purer than the condensed Spiritual Power of the Moon Root?
     Muyan spreads out her slender snow white hands, slowly operating the power within her body.
    Internal Force circulates within her Qi Sea.
    But no, this isn’t the power that she wants to use.
    She could feel that there’s another force within her.
    When the Tian Mo Qin was repaired,
    When she used silver needles to treat the dying Bai Yichen and Lou Beiyu-

Chapter 458: What if Xiao Bao wakes up
 
    After entering, the girl seems listless, blankly standing by the doorway, but refusing to come over.
 
    Jun Shang, who had been reclining all this time, finally couldn’t bear it anymore. He lifts his eyes and says: “Come here.”
 
    The man’s voice is lowered and husky, with a magnetism that could make a person’s ears pregnant.
 
    Muyan’s heart is like the string of the zither softly being strummed by the man, tingling and restless.
 
    Her feet walks over to the man without her control.
 
    Once she’s less than half a meter away from Di Ming Jue, her wrists are suddenly captured, and she’s tugged in.
 
    Her whole body falls forward, into a broad, warm embrace.
 
    The man’s unique scent assaults her senses.
 
    Muyan feels like she’s really been bewitched just now. Why else would she obediently walk right into the trap, just because he tells her to come?
 
    “Let go…”
 
    Before she could finish her words, her small mouth is already blocked up.
 
    The body that wants to escape is firmly imprisoned.
 
    A large hand clasps her slender waist, while another hand presses the back of her head.
 
    Along with the deepening kiss, those slender fingers brushes away the coiled coiffure off her hair.
 
    The long hair unrolls and scatters, and his fingers run through her silky smooth hair that’s like a waterfall, softly stroking the nape of her neck.
 
    Boundlessly ambiguous and lingering.
 
    A good while later, Muyan is breathless as she’s released.
 
    She ferociously glares at the man who has the tendency of getting more and more shameless, “Who allowed you to grope me?”
 
    The man’s deep and low voice enters her ears, “Ben Jun didn’t grope you, Ben Jun… just moved my mouth.”
 
    “You…” Can you still be a more shameless?
 
    Before she could finish her words, the man lowers his head once again, taking her already red and swollen lips in his mouth.
 
    Ravaging and sucking, it’s a good while later when his mouth loosens it’s hold.
 
    “What’s more, Ben Jun is also using his mouth to prevent you from waking up our son.”
 
    Muyan subconsciously looks to the side, at her son who has turned over because of the commotion. She immediately holds her breath and ceases her movements.
 
    Soon after, she feels that the hand on her midsection is slowly kneading her waist. 
 
    Her body is held tighter in Di Ming Jue’s arms.
 
    Closer, through the thin clothing, she could feel the man’s scorching chest, and the texture of the flesh that is faintly moving up and down.
 
    She’s stiff from head to foot, and just as she’s about to struggle,
 
    The man takes her delicate white earlobe in his mouth.
 
    With thick desire, his scandalous, murmuring voice deliberately rubs against her eardrums: “Don’t move, otherwise, what’s to be done if Xiao Bao wakes up?”
 
    “Di Ming Jue!” Muyan gnashes her teeth as she glares at him.
 
    But she makes contact with the man’s eyes – pampering, passionate, and dark like the abyss of ocean under ten thousand fathoms.
 
    “It’s already late in the evening, you must be tired for the day. Does my lady still not intend to rest?”
 
    The man’s slender fingers works the knot on her belt, slowly undoing it.
 
    Muyan inwardly panics, thinking that if she doesn’t stop him, something might happen tonight.
 
    Especially since Di Ming Jue’s breath has become a little hot and scorching.
 
    The pair’s bodies are pressed up against each other, and she could distinctly feel the man has swords drawn and bows bent.
 
    The next moment-
 
    Di Ming Jue suddenly feels his arms go empty.
 
    There’s only a belt left on his hand.
 
    And the warm, fragrant nephrite just now has already disappeared without a trace.
 
    His lust-ridden eyes slowly retreats and meanders.
 
    Then they narrow dangerously.
 
    On the hand that had just touched the young woman’s skin, there still seems to be the exquisitely warm tactile sensation that remains.
 
    Just thinking about it, the blood in his entire body cannot help but boil.
 
    What a pity that the little woman has slipped away!
 
    Of course, Di Ming Jue knows that Muyan has entered the Space.
 
     He could have easily grabbed her out.

Chapter 457: Because of Jealousy
    Ru Yan continues: “This subordinate had heard of it as well. There were also a lot of people in our Ghost City who tried to concoct Pills, but all of them failed, even sustaining damage on their meridians and Qi Sea because the backlash from the Dan Fire. Miss, you really don’t need to take on that kind of risk.”
    Indeed, they could still remember.
    Back then, when they were in Xia’an, Muyan’s attempt at alchemy caused a big explosion.
    At that time, it almost blasted Junji Drugstore’s entire courtyard.
    At that time, Muyan and Xiao Bao also got lucky that they didn’t suffer any injuries.
    What if she really, finally gets hurt this time?
    What’s more, they really think that the special grade draughts that Muyan refines are far superior than the troublesome Elixirs.
    Haven’t they seen how, after hearing “Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking”, those people in the Ghost City couldn’t even care about Shi Lanling?
    Stomping on that so-called Shi-xianzi’s face straight down to the earth’s core.
    As soon as Ru Yan remembers that scene, she feels incredibly pleased.
    Muyan’s gaze sweeps through the people there, unhurriedly saying: “Do you guys all think that I can’t make Elixirs?”
    Without waiting for everyone’s reply, she stands up and lightly brushes her sleeves. Her smile is languid and enchanting.
    “Since you all think that I couldn’t refine it, then…”
    “I can only absolutely insist on refining it!”
    After saying that, under everyone’s shocked looks, she turns and leaves.
    They all look at each other. It’s only after some time that they somewhat come back to their senses.
    “Miss is so insistent on alchemy, is it because she’s jealous?”
    “Hm, yea. Sure, after all, when that Shi Lanling kept on saying that she can concoct Pills, and she could be of help to Gu Ye, she looked very bad.”
     “But that’s alchemy! Isn’t it simply impossible to succeed without the secret method of condensing Pills?”
    “Right! On the Yanwu Continent, there’s never been a single person who had successfully done it without the secret method!”
    Yet Yan Haotian, who hasn’t said anything so far, slightly lowers his eyes.
    He is definitely the one who has followed Muyan the longest.
    Therefore, nobody knows better than him, just how many miracles has this beautiful girl made, even though she seems too weak to stand up to the wind.
    Would a miracle really not happen this time?
    ===
    Muyan returns to her room. Pushing the door open, she sees Di Ming Jue sitting by the bed, lazily flipping through the pages a the book in his hand.
    Xiao Bao is sleeping soundly on the bed near him.
    His delicate little face is calm, contented, and at peace. It’s completely unlike before, when he would weep quietly whenever she’s not by his side.
    Seeing this scene, Muyan’s heart turns incredibly soft.
    This kind of tranquility, this present picture of ease and stability – it allows her to come up with a voracious desire to keep on like this forever.
    All of a sudden, her gaze shifts, and she sees the book’s cover page. Her brows jump up.
    This book had been taken out from her Space.
    However, exactly how could this man possibly take out something from her Tian Mo Qin’s space?
    Or rather, just how could this man know that she has such a space?
    If he knows of the Space’s existence, then what about the secrets of the Tian Mo Qin and the Shen Musicians?
    Does he also know about them?
    Baili Yinlou previously said, that the Shen Musician is an existence that the Three Realms wishes so strongly to eliminate completely.
    If Di Ming Jue comes to know of her identity as a disciple of the Shen Musicians, will he also want to eliminate her?
    But immediately, Muyan rejects her own conclusion.
    That’s because, according to Baili Liuyin’s notes, Muyan knows that a portable Space is very common in the Xiuxian Continent.
    However, the Tian Mo Qin having a Space is a secret that only a small number of people from Hall of God Musicians know of.
    How could Di Ming Jue know of the existence of the Tian Mo Qin and the Shen Musicians?

EMHS – ch456

Chapter 456: Future Gu Ye (Son-in-law)
    Chen Qingfeng’s current level of refining draughts is actually quite remarkable.
    In fact, Muyan only deals a smalls number of draughts to the Ghost City.
    All the other medicines that they sell to the Ghost City are refined by Chen Qingfeng.
    Even though the draughts made by Chen Qinfeng aren’t as miraculous as Muyan’s-
    Their effects are a little bit stronger compared to an ordinary refiner’s.
     Moreover, the price is within the acceptable range for most practitioners, so they are very popular in the Ghost City.
    Nevertheless, Chen Qingfeng still feels very dejected.
    “Miss, I’m really too stupid.” head hanging down, his listlessly says, “You’ve already taught me so many times how to refine the Philter of Barrier Breaking, but I still couldn’t do it. You’ve been teaching me for such a long time, but I still couldn’t follow your examples, not even the fundamentals.”
    Ru Yan sneers and says: “Why don’t you take a look at who’s fundamentals those belong to? That you can have the merit of Miss’ basic knowledge, take it out, and all the other apothecaries would be madly jealous of you.”
    That makes everyone roar with laughter.
    Chen Qingfeng’s unshaven face also reveals a silly smile.
    After laughing, Muyan listens to the task reports from Ru Yan and Yan Haotian.
    Only then do they quiet down: “In the next three days, I’m going into seclusion, if you have some matters that you couldn’t handle, you can try to find…”
    She still hasn’t finished her words, when Ru Yan smiles and says: “Don’t worry, Miss. If there’s something that we couldn’t deal with, we know that we could look for Gu Ye*. Gu Ye is so powerful, there’s really nothing that he can’t resolve.”
  • son-in-law, used by the woman’s family to refer to her husband.
    Muyan clenches her teeth, “Who are you calling Gu Ye?”
    Ru Yan blinks, and suddenly realizes something, “Oh, that’s right, he’s still not Gu Ye, it should be future Gu Ye!”
    “But this subordinate thinks that future Gu Ye is very eager, wanting the full position!”
    “Hehe, naturally! Just look at our Miss, it’s really Gu Ye’s good fortune over three lifetimes that he could marry our Lady.”
    “But well, if future Gu Ye wants to marry Miss, he still has to cross the mountain pass that is the Little Gongzi…”
    “The Young Master calls Gu Ye ‘dad’, he’s clearly recognized him already!”
    Muyan suppresses the veins suddenly popping on her forehead, unhappily saying: “Silence, I don’t have a relationship with that guy!”
    But it’s just a pity, that after she finishes speaking-
    The group of subordinates below, each and every one of them has a smile that says “You don’t need to say it, we all understand that you’re shy” on their faces.
    Muyan suddenly feels very powerless, and she couldn’t stop her cheeks from heating up.
    “Oh, right. Miss, are you going into seclusion this time in order to try alchemy?” Ru Yan suddenly asks.
    Everyone’s eyes can only gather on Muyan, wanting to say something but hesitant to do so.
    “Miss, the truth is, the draughts that you refine already far surpasses the value and usefulness of the Elixirs today. There’s simply no need to force yourself to do alchemy because of that annoying Shi Lanling!”
    “That’s right, Miss. What Jian Feng, what Shi Lanling, so what if they’re called Master Alchemists? The value of their Elixirs still simply couldn’t compare with the special draughts that you refine.”
    Even Feng Haitang, who’s habitually silent, and always calm and steady, also opens her mouth with some hesitation.
    “Miss, this subordinate had once read an ancient text in the Feng Family. It said that in reality, there’s absolutely no one in the Yanwu Continent who can genuinely do alchemy, and that the Elixirs that we see today are really just semi-finished products.”
    “Also, the reason why others can refine these half-made goods, is because their predecessors have passed down a secret method of condensing Pills. There were previously a lot of people in the Yanwu Continent who are extremely talented in refining medicine. They tried to do alchemy, but all of them ultimately failed. It’s because those Alchemy families didn’t give them the secret method of condensing Pills.”

EMHS – ch455

Chapter 455: Really want
 
    At this time, each and every one of them look towards the middle-aged woman, gazes brimming with gratitude.
 
    If she hadn’t stood up to defend the Shenshu first, they wouldn’t have had the guts to offend Shi-xianzi either.
 
    Had that been the case, they naturally couldn’t have obtained this gargantuan benefit.
 
    Although at the moment, this Blood Lotus Serum still hasn’t been sold in the Ghost City, they know from just listening about the effects of this special grade draught, that it would certainly sell for a sky-high price as well – even money wouldn’t be able to buy it.
 
    Now that they’re getting a bottle out of nowhere, how could they not go wild with joy?
 
    In contrast to these people, the ones who stood by Xu Fu are currently really regretting it, that their intestines going all green.
 
    Just a moment ago, they had still been celebrating that they’ve escaped punishment. 
 
    But now, they feel like they’ve lost the treasures of the entire world.
 
    Everyone’s eyes pierces Xu Fu like knives, hating that they couldn’t chop him up into ten thousand pieces.
 
    If it wasn’t for this guy creating trouble out of nothing, how could they just watch on helplessly as treasures are getting taken, while they don’t get anything?
 
    Aargh! The Precelestial Philter of Barrier Breaking! The Blood Lotus Serum! They really want it!!
 
    Magistrate Liu has an aggrieved face as well. How great would it be if these draughts are all given to him!
 
    Even if he doesn’t consume them, he would be insanely happy if he could use them for research.
 
    He thickens his face, wanting to ask Muyan for more, but he meets the young lady’s indifferent eyes, and he can only wither.
 
    Nevertheless, Muyan gets closer to him, and slowly says: “If I find out someone has forcefully seized the things that I, Jun Muyan, have given away – haha, your Ghost City knows the consequences.”
 
    Some people were originally planning to target the Ghost Envoys and Magistrates with weaker cultivation, and forcefully buy it from them. Hearing that statement however, those people can only shudder.
 
    They don’t dare to be rash anymore.
 
    Magistrate Liu goes further to smile obsequiously again and again: “Rest assured, rest assured, there’s this old man looking out. If I see someone dare to shamelessly rob another, I’ll absolutely peel off all their skin.”
 
    In this way, the concerns of the middle age woman and her group also dissipate.
 
    Yet the others are all the more sorrowful, and they’re also all the more resentful towards Xu Fu.
 
    Xu Fu receives everyone’s hateful looks, then he sees the middle age woman and her party grinning from ear to ear.
 
    He clenches his fat, greasy hand into a fist.
 
    Soon after, he raises his head towards the direction where Muyan and the others have left. His eyes glow with bitter resentment and hatred.
 
    ===
 
    Ever since they’ve looted Jin Wangfu, it goes without saying that Muyan’s “pocket” has been progressively getting thinner from raising the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit. At present, it has become incredibly full once again.
 
    That’s why, after arriving at Jing Cheng’s Wangjiang City, she doesn’t stay at an inn.
 
    Instead, she directly makes Ru Yan buy a courtyard in a hidden location, but with a spacious and comfortable layout.
 
    When Muyan leaves later, this place can serve as another base for operations of the Tianji Unit.
 
    Following Muyan to Wangjiang City this time:
 
    In addition to Yan Haotian, Feng Haitang, Ru Yan, and the others – there’s also Chen Qingfeng and Fang Jingya.
 
    The Ink Camp is stationed over at Tianyuan City, led by Shen Jinglin and Chang Yu.
 
    Under Ru Yan’s day to day training, Fang Jingya has already been completely reborn.
 
    When she’s quietly standing at the side, it could make people completely overlook her existence.
 
    But when she raises her lips to give a light laugh, she can make people feel like they’re being cleansed by the spring wind, and totally lay down their defenses against her.
 
    There’s not a thread nor a hair of a seductive appearance, but she can make men feel tenderness towards her, and make women feel like they’re close to her.
 
    This is practically the best kind of spy.
 
    Ru Yan herself praises Fang Jingya’s aptitude and exceptional talents as a spy.
 
    About taking Chen Qingfeng along – it’s because during this time, he’s come into a plateau in his skills of refining medicine.
 
    Even his cultivation is in a rut.
 
    So, Muyan asked him to stay by her side, so she can give him instructions from time to time.
