Chapter 486: The show has just begun
 
    Han Ye is stunned, dumbfounded as he stares at Ying Mei. A smile on his face one moment, then listlessness in another.
 
    Soon after, it seems like he remembers something.
 
    He howls in grief all of a sudden, “Aaah, three more months, if you add that up, won’t I be staying in the Purgatory Pool for a year? Jun Shang, no! Spare me!”
 
    ……
 
    After all the laughter, Han Ye’s expression turns serious, saying: “Jun Shang, as of the moment, it appears like someone is exercising control over the Ghost City. Even with Gu Yue, that guy, everything bodes ill, no hints of good.”
 
    He pauses, watching Di Ming Jue, “Jun Shang, are we going to intervene?”
 
    Di Ming Jue looks indifferent, not saying anything.
 
    Han Ye shakes his head, “I understand.”
 
    They cannot intervene.
 
    People of the Xiuxian Continent have come to the Yanwu Continent. The karmic entanglement is too great.
 
    Especially since Di Jun’s real body has descended, they need to be more cautious of their conduct and deeds.
 
    Otherwise, it is extremely likely that they would trigger frightening consequences.
 
    Even though Ghost City was previously founded by the Polar Domain, so many years have passed that Yanwu Continent’s Ghost City has long been estranged with the Polar Domain.
 
    This time, Jun Shang came down to the Yanwu Continent only for Miss Jun.
 
    He won’t handle other matters, as he shouldn’t.
 
    The fate of Gu Yue and the Ghost City is already decided.
 
    They shouldn’t meddle anymore.
 
    Han Ye says: “Jun Shang, rest assured. We will not go and interfere with the affairs of the Ghost City anymore.”
 
    “Now that the herbs have all been gathered, shall we leave Wangjiang City as soon as possible?”
 
    After all, they killed a Ghost King. If the Ghost City comes to know of this, they probably wouldn’t be willing to take things lying down.
 
    However, just as Han Ye’s words fall, Muyan’s languid yet mysterious voice comes through.
 
    “Leave? The show has just begun, how can you leave now?”
 
    Han Ye looks at Muyan in astonishment.
 
    Muyan’s eyes are slightly narrowed, the corners of her mouth are still raised in an easy smile, but her expression is cold beyond words.
 
    “When you mentioned the name ‘Xuan Ji’ earlier, it felt familiar to my ears. Now I finally remember.”
 
    In her previous life, she had seen a strange, effeminate man at Gong Qianxue’s side.
 
    Moreover, at that man’s side, there stood a woman who was completely wrapped and covered from head to foot.
 
    At that time, Muyan seems to have heard Gong Qianxue calling that man “big brother Xuan Ji”, and calling that woman “Liu Se-sister”.
 
    Muyan wasn’t really clear about what she heard.
 
    After all, she didn’t know what the words “Xuan Ji” and “Liu Se” were.
 
    But at that time, upon seeing her, Gong Qianxue immediately made those two individuals leave.
 
    There was a hint of agitation on her face, and later, she repeatedly probed Muyan whether or not the latter recognized the identity of those two people.
 
    Back then, Muyan had been too foolish. She didn’t have even a tiny bit of doubt towards Gong Qianxue.
 
    But hearing the name Xuan Ji now, she finally remembers.
 
    That ‘big brother Xuan Ji’ was the Ghost King of Wangjiang’s Ghost City.
 
    Meaning, Wangjiang’s Ghost City had long fallen into Gong Qianxue’s hands.
 
    “If you guys want to go back, you can go back first.” Muyan nonchalantly sweeps her gaze over Di Ming Jue and the others, “You don’t want to meddle in the Ghost City’s affairs, but I do.”
 
    How could she possibly be indifferent to anything that concerns Gong Qianxue?
 
    Regardless of her fate, of karma-
 
    She only knows that in this rebirth, she will make all of Gong Qianxue’s dreams and ambitions turn into soap bubbles.
 
    She will definitely have this woman consigned to eternal damnation, the debt of blood must be paid in blood!
 
    “If niangqin won’t go back, Xiao Bao also won’t go back!” Xiao Bao hugs his mother, his huge eyes filled with conscientiousness, “Xiao Bao goes with Niangqin!” 
 
    Saying that, he even sends a dismissive glance towards Di Ming Jue’s group. Waving his hand, “You guys can go!”
 
     Di Ming Jue raises his eyes towards Muyan, his gaze deep and inscrutable.

Chapter 485: So stupidly cute
 
    “They still haven’t come back?” all at once, Muyan’s brows draw together, “They only went to the Ghost City to pick up some drug ingredients, how come they’re not back yet?”
 
    There shouldn’t be any problem, right?
 
     Or, maybe the fat rabbit couldn’t stop itself, and had eaten up all the Strange Beasts in the Ghost City?
 
     Muyan can’t help but press between her brows, preparing herself to go to the Ghost City and take a look. 
 
    Suddenly–
 
    “Niangqin–!” a crisp, childish shout is accompanied by a very small figure that shoots itself into her embrace like a projectile.
 
    “Xiao Bao!” Muyan holds the small, soft form tightly to her chest, “How come you’ve only come back now?”
 
    There’s anxiousness in her voice, but her suspended heart finally falls back to its original place.
 
    Xiao Bao rubs his head against Muyan’s neck, then he looks up, “Nianqin, Ghost City had a bad person!”
 
    Puff–!
 
   A fluffy white head pops out from the middle of Muyan and Xiao Bao’s hug.
 
    The fat rabbit lets out a howling sound, shaking its head to take credit for some achievement.
 
    The bad egg was fended off by me, all by this Grandpa Rabbit!
 
    Ah pah!! Since when was it Grandpa Rabbit? This wise, war deity of a mythical beast, how could it possibly be a Grandpa Rabbit?!
 
    Muyan doesn’t have the leisure to manage the fat rabbit’s identity crisis, as she turns to Han Ye and Ying Mei.
 
    Only to see that the two of them are all covered in blood, battered and exhausted.
 
    Even more, Ying Mei is just being carried on Han Ye’s back.
 
    Muyan has flash of understanding, then frowns.
 
    Even Di Ming Jue has a slightly grim expression, “What happened exactly?”
 
    ……
 
    Within Muyan chamber, Han Ye briefly recounts the events in the Ghost City.
 
    After he finished speaking, Han Ye plops down to a kneel in front of Di Ming Jue.
 
    “Jun Shang, I know that Ying Mei is a woman dressed as a man, deceiving Jun Shang. According to the laws of the Polar Domain, it is subject to capital punishment. If Jun Shang really wishes to punish her, can you allow this subordinate to receive it on her behalf?”
 
    Ying Mei snaps her eyes wide open, “Han Ye, what nonsense are you talking about?”
 
    Di Ming Jue narrows his eyes a bit, not a sliver of expression on his handsome face, “You should be very clear about the punishment one receives for violating Polar Domain’s iron law.”
 
   “This subordinate understands!” Han Ye says without the slightest hesitation, “but this subordinate wishes to take the punishment on behalf of Ying Mei!”
 
    What kind of punishment is he asking to receive?
 
    How could he not know?
 
    The few of them are Jun Shang’s trusted aides, and have pledged their eternal loyalty and devotion to Jun Shang – they simply cannot have the slightest bit of deceit or betrayal.
 
    If this vow is violated, they will be stripped off of their Immortal Bones, and driven out of the world of Immortals, eternally forbidden to return.
 
    For anyone in the Xiuxian Continent, such a punishment is considered hell.
 
    Han Ye is also afraid, but he can bear this kind of punishment for Ying Mei.
 
    He doesn’t have a thread nor a hair of regret.
 
    Ying Mei sighs softly. A trace of a helpless smile appears on her normally cool and indifferent face.
 
    This guy, Han Ye… how is he so stupid!
 
    And yet so stupidly cute.
 
    Di Ming Jue towers over as he looks down on Han Ye’s ‘viewing death as a return home’- face. He unhurriedly says: “Since it is so, you will stay in the Purgatory Pool for three more months.”
 
    Han Ye hangs his head down: “This subordinate shall comply… eh?! Three months… in the Purgatory Pool?!”
 
    “Jun… Jun Shang?!”
 
    Han Ye raises his head to look at Di Ming Jue in disbelief.
 
    Why is it merely going to the Purgatory Pool and staying there for three more months?!
 
    Shouldn’t it be sentenced to capital punishment?
 
    At the side, Muyan finally couldn’t help herself, giggling and laughing out loud.
 
    Nestled in Muyan’s arms, Xiao Bao disdainfully utters a phrase, “Stupid Uncle Han Ye!”
 
    Soon after, Han Ye reacts in late realization.
 
    “Jun Shang, you, you already know that Ying Mei is a woman?!”
 
    Ying Mei kneels beside Han Ye, and she couldn’t help but pat his head, “Fool, did you forget? We’ve made a blood contract with Jun Shang, how could I possibly conceal my secret from Jun Shang?”

Chapter 484: Same to you
    However, her immaculate image has become flawed, it has already become irreparable.
    Even Senior Brother Jian Feng, who is infatuated with her and adores her, when she was covered all over with that body odor, he had also frowned and revealed a disgusted expression.
    Made proud and arrogant, never having suffered the least bit of grievance, how can Gong Qianxue bear it?
    And all this humiliation has been brought upon her by that slut, Jun Muyan!
    But Gong Qianxue isn’t willing to think-
    That if it wasn’t for her instigating the people of Raging Inferno Mercenary Group to deal with Jun Muyan, she needn’t have suffered this karmic backlash.
    Gong Qianxue takes a deep breath, then eagerly and indignantly says: “Liu Se-sister, I know who killed big brother Xuan Ji.”
    “Who?!!”
    “It is the Enchantress if Medicine, who is arrogant and powerful in Tianyuan City these days– Jun Muyan. She is now in Jing Cheng’s Wangjiang City. With her own hands, this vicious woman killed big brother Xuan Ji.”
    “Jun Muyan! Jun Muyan!” Liu Se utters this name again and again, through gritted teeth, “Very well, I will go to Wangjiang City at once. I will make the one who killed my Xuan Ji pay, a hundred thousand times back.”
    “Jun Muyan, I want you to die without a burial site!”
    Seeing the raging murderous intent that’s burning in Liu Se’s eyes, the corner of Gong Qianxue’s lips slowly curl up, revealing a cold smile.
    Liu Se, this stupid woman is ready to go to Wangjiang’s Ghost City. Really, this can’t be better.
    In this way, be it Jun Muyan, the Ghost Lord Gu Yue, or the Ghost City – all of them could be settled easily.
    ===
    “Miss, you’re back.” Ru Yan sees the handsome man and beautiful woman swiftly coming in from outside the door, she immediately goes up to welcome them with a smile, “Going out with Jun Shang today, I hope you enjoyed…”
    Halfway through, Ru Yan’s voice slowly becomes small as it falls.
    That’s because she finally has a clear look on Di Ming Jue’s unhappy expression.
    Furthermore, after hearing her inquiry, the cold eyes dart towards her.
    Ru Yan shrinks her neck, looking towards Muyan with extreme grievance.
    Muyan sends Di Ming Jue a glance, somewhat amused, but she holds it back.
    She knows that this man had driven Xiao Bao out today in order enter a romantic couple’s world with her.
    But the outcome is apparently less than ideal.
    Every time the two of them want to be alone, they would always be interrupted by various people and all kinds of affairs.
     If it isn’t a man coming up to hit on Muyan, it would be a woman who wants to throw herself into Di Ming Jue’s arms.
    Finally, after great difficulty, they were able to go boating in the middle of the lake, and the atmosphere has become a little romantic.
    But then, an injured youngster fell from the sky, and after Muyan used a draught to cure his injuries, he knelt before her and insisted on selling himself into servitude to her.
    Angry, Di Ming Jue’s expression changes on the spot, and he directly kicks the recently recovered youngster into the lake.
    “Hey, are you still angry?” Muyan tugs Di Ming Jue’s sleeve, “Stop scaring my subordinate.”
    With a dark face, Di Ming Jue’s hand shoots out to hug Muyan by the waist, locking her up in his embrace, “Ben Jun really wants to lock you up in a room, lest you go out and attract bees and butterflies.”
    “Haha, I could say the same thing to you!” Muyan hooks Di Ming Jue’s chin up. With a mockery of a smile, “Jun Shang-daren’s ability to pick the flowers and trample the grass, isn’t quite great as well?”
    Di Ming Jue immediately leans in a little closer, his voice a little husky, “Ben Jun wouldn’t mind Yanyan locking me away, just… the two of us, you and I.”
    Muyan: “…”
    Maniac, the strength and thickness of his face has already become all the more unrivaled, she’s ashamed of being inferior.
    At the side, Ru Yan thinks: Miss, son-in-law, if you two want to make a public display of affection, in any case, show some consideration to this humble subordinate beside you!
    “Cough… Ru Yan, where’s Xiao Bao?”
    Ru Yan comes back to herself, “Little Gongzi and Ying Mei-daren, since they went out, they still haven’t come back.”

Chapter 483: Who murdered my Xuan Ji
    Liu Se, this fool, is also the only one who’s still under the impression that Xuan Ji has deeply-rooted feelings towards her, faithful in thoughts and effort.
    Hasn’t she considered, that with her appearance being neither human nor ghost, who would want to look upon her?
    But on the surface, Gong Qianxue doesn’t show a trace of these thoughts. On the contrary, there’s well-wishes and appreciation across her whole face.
    “Big brother Xuan Ji really has remarkable skill. After several years of joining Jing Cheng’s Ghost City, he’s already become its Ghost King, and he even took complete control of the Ghost City. He’s indeed worthy of being the man that Liu Se-sister has fallen for.”
    The expression on Liu Se’s face becomes sweeter and more complacent, the smiling expression is making the craters and creases on her face scrunch up together.
    It looks exceptionally terrible.
    Gong Qianxue couldn’t bear it anymore, and she casts her gaze elsewhere, looking at the hundreds of Corpse Soldiers not far from them. Again, she can’t help but have her blood heat up and boil over.
    Liu Se is ugly and disgusting, but as long as she can make these Corpse Soldiers-
    Gong Qianxue must tolerate her well.
    That’s because these Soldiers are controlled by the Mother Gu that Liu Se raises in her body.
    If Liu Se dies, all of these Corpse Soldiers will go up in smoke.
    Gong Qianxue has poured countless resources on these Soldiers.
    If the ship is spoiled for a half a penny’s worth of tar*, she absolutely wouldn’t be able to bear it.
  •     failing through lack of a final effort
    Just as she’s about to smile and give Liu Se a few more words of praise,
    She suddenly sees puffs of black smoke come out from Liu Se’s body.
    Immediately after, a blood-red insect burrows out from a spot on Liu Se’s neck.
    After it falls to the ground, it writhes a few times like it’s in extreme pain, then it finally dies.
    Seeing this scene, Liu Se’s eyes immediately go wide, and she lets out a shocked and horrified shriek, “No, it can’t be! This is absolutely impossible!”
    That voice is so sharp, it’s practically piercing through the skies.
    Gong Qianxue jumps in fright, quickly asking, “Liu Se-sister, what’s going on? What happened?”
    “Xuan Ji, Xuan Ji is dead! How is this possible?! Who? Who murdered my Xuan Ji!!”
    Gong Qianxue starts, and it’s quite a while before she finds her voice, “Xuan Ji is dead?! How did he die?!”
    How could Xuan Ji possibly die!
    She’s had just been watching as Jing Cheng’s Ghost City is about to completely fall into her hands.
    How could Xuan Ji suddenly die?!
    What had been at the tips of her fingers has suddenly gone up in smoke. Such a blow almost makes Gong Qianxue unable to maintain her noble and kind-hearted exterior image.
    Xuan Ji, that waste!
    If he wanted to die, why couldn’t he have handed Jing Cheng over to her before dying?!
    But since she doesn’t want to antagonize Liu Se, she didn’t even place a spy by Xuan Ji’s side.
    Now that Xuan Ji is dead, in spite of everything, she has instantly lost control of Jing Cheng’s Ghost City.
    Gong Qianxue’s chest furiously moves up and down, but she forces herself to calm down, “Liu Se-sister, who exactly killed brother Xuan Ji? Just who could be so vicious and merciless? You must avenge big brother Xuan Ji!”
    Liu Se’s ugly face has now become incredibly malevolent. The Corpse Soldiers standing below are affected by Liu Se’s state of mind, letting out sounds like the voices of wailing ghosts and howling wolves.
    “Whoever murdered my Xuan Ji, I swear I’m going to cut up his body into ten thousand pieces!”
    Flap flap!
    A carrier pigeon swoops down from the sky and lands on Gong Qianxue’s shoulder.
    Gong Qianxue knows that this is from one of the spies that she’s placed in various areas of Jing Cheng, sending back some news.
    Seeing the message on it, Gong Qianxue’s pupils suddenly contract.
    Her harsh, cold voice is dyed with murderous intent as she slowly squeezes it out of her lips and teeth, “Jun–! Mu–! Yan–!!”
    Seeing this name, hearing this name-
    It’s as if Gong Qianxue could smell the strong stench coming out from her body.
    That nauseating body odor almost turned her into the laughingstock of the entire Imperial Palace.
    In the end, Jian Feng had specially refined an Elixir for her, and only then was that body odor suppressed.

Chapter 482: Best Friend
    Each and every one of them have reached the Earth Stage in their cultivation.
    But their eyes don’t have any trace of expression.
    Of their exposed flesh, there are even visible spots and areas of putrefaction.
    They appear ghastly beyond words.
    Gong Qianxue looks at these people, as well as the woman beside her, disgust and smugness intermingling in her eyes.
    However, as she turns towards the ugly woman beside her, she immediately puts on a look of gratitude and trust, “Sister Liu Se, I naturally have faith in your work. This batch of [Corpse Soldiers] that you’ve cultivated for me, their strength have now reached Earth Stage, solving quite a lot of trouble for me. Liu Se, thank you, you are my best friend!”
    Saying that, she directly grasps the woman’s hand.
    This woman is called Liu Se, a beautiful-sounding name, but her face looks unspeakably ugly.
    Even her hands are also wrinkly, bumpy and full of holes like a tree bark that that has been nibbled on by parasites, making people feel queasy.
    But when Gong Qianxue grasps it, there’s not the slightest bit of change on her face, but for the brimming cordiality.
    Liu Se’s unsightly face shows a hint of being emotionally moved.
    Ever since she’s turned into this damnable appearance, only Gong Qianxue has been willing to treat her as a friend, treat her as a normal person.
    That’s why, no matter what, she will definitely help Gong Qianxue.
    But Liu Se didn’t catch sight of it.
    As soon as she released her hand, that split second she turned around, Gong Qianxue immediately wipes her own hand furiously on her clothes.
    There’s an incomparably hateful and disgusted expression on her face.
    Still, thinking of Liu Se’s abilities, Gong Qianxue bears with the disgust.
    Liu Se, this woman, she’s still useful.
    Not to mention the Corpse Soldiers that she refines are practically invincible, who knows how much trouble it has helped her resolve.
    For example, the clan here that is now dead.
    They’ve been guarding a gold mine, and she wanted to make them take it out, but they actually wouldn’t agree.
    Haha, since they’re unable to tell good from bad, then let them bury corpses within the gold mine forever.
    Of course, the most important thing is Liu Se’s identity!
    Huang Yao’s Ghost King!
    That’s right, even Jian Feng and the Heavenly Road Sect are unaware that Gong Qianxue has already turned over the control of Huang Yao’s Ghost City into Liu Se’s hands.
    Today, in the Ghost City of Jing Cheng, Xuan Ji is about to cover the sky with a hand .
    Just remove the obstruction that is the Ghost Lord Gu Yue.
    When that moment comes, she would have completely excavated the entire Ghost City.
    All the resources within it, everything will be hers.
    The light in Gong Qianxue’s eyes are burning brightly from anticipation, “Right, Liu Se-sister, last time, didn’t you say that Xuan Ji had mentioned a way to be able to control the Ghost Lord? Has he yet to send back any information about how things are going about that matter?”
    “Rest assured, Princess. Xuan Ji had come with news a few days ago, saying that he has made an agreement with the Ghost City’s Shi-xianzi, Shi Lanling, making her help refine a certain Elixir. Before that Elixir, even the Ghost Lord Gu Yue would be completely without the power to fight back. Without a doubt, Ghost Lord Gu Yue shall die.”
    As she speaks of Xuan Ji, an odd radiance flashes through Liu Se’s eyes, it seems like longing, like bashfulness.
    Gong Qianxue chuckles: “Brother Xuan Ji and Liu Se-sister are truly a pair made in heaven!”
    “Back then, big brother Xuan Ji had fallen to the Fog Forest and he was dying. Luckily, big sister Liu Se had saved him. Since then, big brother Xuan Ji had given his heart to you, sister – what an inspiring story. It’s really enviable.
    As she speaks, she watches Liu Se’s face, and feels a bout of nausea.
    Liu Se, this idiot, she’s really stupid to the extreme.
    She actually truly believes that Xuan Ji likes her.
    In Xuan Ji’s eyes, his disgust towards her is clear for anyone with eyes.

Chapter 481: Henpecked Man
 
    “Little Master, we’ve finished our business. Let’s go back!” Ying Mei’s voice slowly comes through.
 
    Her voice carries gentleness and reverence. Nowhere is the savagery from just a moment ago, not even a bit.
 
    Xiao Bao blinks his huge eyes, obediently holding out a hand to let Ying Mei take it, and they leave this hidden underground stone room.
 
    He hasn’t seen his mother for a day already, so he wants niangqin now!
 
    Behind them, Han Ye bitterly looks at Xiao Bao being led along by that small hand, hating that he couldn’t replace Xiao Bao’s hand with his own and be pulled along.
 
    Thinking off his performance today, his expression becomes incomparably dispirited once more.
 
    He’s really too useless!
 
    He wasn’t able to be the hero who saves the beauty, relying instead on the Lady’s medicine and the Little Master’s assistance so they could get out of danger.
 
    If that animal really managed to do harm to Little Shadow and sullied her, he… he… would truly not have any face to keep on living!
 
    Even in the final vengeance, it was also Little Shadow who ran the whole show all by herself.
 
    He didn’t help with anything.
 
   Even in the Polar Domain, among Jun Shang’s trusted aide’s, there’s no shortage of men who are more handsome than him, more powerful than him, and more worthy of Little Shadow than him. What qualifications does he possess to delude himself that he could stand by Little Shadow’s side?
 
    Slowly, Han Ye’s footsteps become as heavy, as if weighted with lead.
 
    The initially fiery heart drops to the lowest ebb as well.
 
    Just then, he suddenly hears Ying Mei’s clear and cool voice from up ahead, “Stupid, what are you dawdling about over there?”
 
    Startled, Han Ye promptly speeds up his pace to catch up with Ying Mei.
 
    However, his expression is still as melancholic as before, not even daring to raise his eyes and look at Ying Mei.
 
    Ying Mei sighs softly, and releases Xiao Bao’s hand. Lowering her voice: “It seems like my foot has sustained injuries. It kind of hurts to walk!”
 
    “Ah! Your foot is injured? How can that be? Is it a heavy injury?!” Han Ye loses his head all of a sudden, quickly trying to go and examine the condition of Ying Mei’s injury.
 
    Ying Mei’s foot is indeed covered in a lot of blood, and it appears somewhat dreadful.
 
    But Han Ye doesn’t realize that all the blood belongs to Xuan Ji.
 
    In theory, with Ying Mei’s body, and with her Spiritual Power restored, ordinary injuries would heal within a blink of an eye.
 
    But Han Ye simply couldn’t think of these in his panic.
 
    Ying Mei watches his appearance of panic, of him being at a loss of what to do, and a sliver of warmth flits across her eyes, “Idiot, too noisy. Carry me on your back and let’s return!”
 
    “Ah–!” Han Ye is silly for quite a while, before he abruptly comes back to his senses.
 
    Red-faced, he crouches down and carries Ying Mei on his back.
 
    As the girl soft body presses up against his back, Han Ye becomes stiff all over, and he almost forgets to breathe.
 
    Xiao Bao is carrying the fat rabbit as he follows behind the pair, watching the way Han Ye looks, as he walks like a snail crawls. They can’t help but shake their heads together.
 
    “Bunny, idiot Uncle Han Ye is definitely going to be a henpecked man later!”
 
    The phrase ‘henpecked man’ is also something that Xiao Bao and niangqin saw within Baili Liuyin’s notes.
 
    The fat rabbit turns to look up at Xiao Bao, mung bean eyes blinking. It inwardly says: ‘Even that terrifying Di Jun is a henpecked man. If his subordinate is also the same, what’s so strange about that?’
 
    ===
 
    Huang Yao Country.
 
    The night is moonless and windy, and there’s not a sound to be heard.
 
    In a remote ravine, the heavy smell of blood permeates the air, putrid, then there’s the sound of heart-tearing, lung-splitting howls of pain that fills the night.
 
    A very long while later, the wailing of anguished voices finally fade away and disappear without a trace.
 
    But the reek of blood and rot becomes all the more pervasive.
 
    “Princess, what do you think of this batch of [Corpse Soldiers]?”
 
    Under the dim light of night, there’s a tall, ugly woman with wrinkles and dark brown vein lines covering her whole face. She’s bowing in front of Gong Qianxue.
 
    Hanging on her face is an indescribable smugness.
 
    Not far from the pair, several hundred people are standing.
 
    Only, perhaps those could no longer be called ‘people’.

EMHS – ch480

Chapter 480: Extremely frightening
 
    Han Ye clutches his stomach, his features are scrunched up, and he lets out a muffled groan.
 
    Ying Mei sees his pained appearance, and she can’t help but inwardly panic, a faint sense of distress rising up from the bottom of her heart.
 
    Her punch just now, it wasn’t too heavy, was it?
 
    Did she really hurt Han Ye?
 
    The apprehension in her mind is making her firmly knit her brows.
 
    But in end, she couldn’t contain her anxiousness. Getting closer to Han Ye, she asks with a cold face: “I didn’t use a lot of Spiritual Power, you can’t be that useless…”
 
    She still hasn’t finished speaking, when she’s suddenly hugged by the man in front of her.
 
    Han Ye’s slightly hoarse voice sounds in her ears, “Little Shadow, you still care about me. I’m so happy!”
 
    “Scoundrel, let go!” Ying Mei spares no effort to struggle.
 
    During their usual sparring, Han Ye is undoubtedly not as good as her.
 
    But at this very moment, the man’s scorching breath is puffing at her neck, unexpectedly making her heart feel like it’s being tickled by countless feathers. A warm current inexplicably springs up in her body, making it go soft, unable to move a single step.
 
    Damn it! Could it be that the effects of the drug Xuan Ji has given her still hasn’t disappeared?
 
    Just then, they hear the violent sound of an explosion from inside the room.
 
    It is closely followed by a thick, nauseating smell of blood.
 
    Numerous Strange Beast corpses seem like they’re engulfed and swept away by a hurricane as they rush out from within.
 
    The trio promptly disperse.
 
    Soon after, they see Xuan Ji soaked in blood from head to foot, his eyes red as he emerges from the room.
 
    “Little bastard, I’m going to kill you! I’m going to peel off every inch of your skin!!”
 
    Xuan Ji makes his way towards Xiao Bao, viciousness and brutality in his eyes.
 
    Before he could come near however-
 
    Ying Mei has stepped forward, blocking in front of Xiao Bao.
 
    Xuan Ji’s line of sight unhurriedly falls on Ying Mei’s face which, male or female, is indisputably beautiful. He shows a malicious smile, “Why, I have yet to make Ying Mei-daren taste the flavor of ecstasy, but you already couldn’t stop thinking about me?”
 
    “Don’t worry, just wait until I dispose of Han Ye and that little bastard child, then I’ll definitely let you have what you desire. Today, none of you may escape.”
 
    There’s not the slightest change in Ying Mei’s expression.
 
    She turns her wrist, and a longsword is slowly unsheathed in her hands.
 
    “I also said that once I’m out of my predicament, I’m definitely going to chop you up in thousands of pieces, not allowing you to possess the will to live, and not allow you to die when you seek for death.”
 
    Ying Mei’s voice carries youth’s distinctive clarity and coherence, but it is mixed with slivers of terrifying ice-cold austerity.
 
    Xuan Ji stares blankly, a small change comes over his complexion, “How- how can you move? There’s no one in the Yanwu Continent who can counter the effects of the Spirit Devouring Powder!”
 
    Clang–!
 
    The sword is fully unsheathed, flickering with a cold gleam, “You want to know the reason? Go to the eighteenth layer of hell, then ask the real King of the Underworld!”
 
    An hour later.
 
    Ying Mei withdraws her sword, kicking aside the still-squirming lump of mushy flesh beside her feet.
 
    With fixed eyes, the rabbit in Xiao Bao’s arms stare at the person slowly making her way to them, and the rabbit can’t help but shudder.
 
    This Ying Mei may seem like a beautiful youngster, pure and crystalline, but her way of torturing people is really… too terrifying!
 
    Compared to the female devil, it’s simply not inferior in any aspect.
 
    Under her hand, that Xuan Ji clearly shouldn’t last for a small cup of tea (5mins).
 
    But he’s been kept alive and tortured by her for an hour.
 
    Even now, to say nothing of his flayed skin, most of his bones have been pulled out.
 
    Against reason, he’s neither dead nor alive, but still struggling at death’s door.
 
    The rabbit is now a little envious of Xiao Bao as Han Ye is covering his eyes, so he didn’t see anything.
 
    It could be said that the fat rabbit, who has been watching the whole thing from beginning to end, has recently acquired an aversion to eating meat.
 
    It’ll leave the Strange Beasts in the Colosseum for later, the rabbit will come again and eat them next time.
