Chapter 333: Fetch a good price
    “Make her compensate for a Spirit Flower, I think that she should be flogged a hundred times. It would serve as a warning against following her bad example!”
    As she’s saying this, the maid looks at Muyan maliciously, a smile of ridicule filling her eyes.
    She dares to be certain that this mysterious Lord must have a favorable impression towards her lady.
    Otherwise, how can you explain the fact that he wants to give such a precious Spirit Flower to Miss?
    Even if this fox-faced gardener wants to seduce him again, what about it?
    Wait until Miss moves her hand, it would be easy to deal with something like her.
    Muyan looks up towards Di Ming Jue, smiling like a flower, “Killing the ‘intention’ that is Jun Shang’s present to his lover, Muyan has really sinned and should die ten thousand times!”
    As she’s saying that, she suddenly operates the Mysterious Energy on her hands, breaking away from Di Ming Jue’s confines within a blink of an eye.
    Just as her hands have broken free, who would’ve thought that her waist would get captured.
    The pair closes the distance between them instead.
    Muyan is about to blow her top off from anger.
    It’s as if Di Ming Jue is looking at a child’s mischief, his cold voice even contains a helpless coddling tone, “Don’t make trouble. Or do you want to get even closer Ben Jun?”
    Muyan: “…!!!” I’d rather want to neuter this scoundrel!
    ……
    The maid is shocked and hatefully jealous of how Muyan is sticking even closer to Di Ming Jue. The light in her eyes changes from complacency to bitter resentment.
    However, she hears Han Ye continue to laugh and ask: “The Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is a rare plant, it is hard to search for it in this world. Finding another flower is practically impossible, this requirement seems to be somewhat of a Herculean task.”
    Hearing Han Ye’s words, the maid’s eyes immediately brighten.
    As it turns out, this fox-face hasn’t completely captured the Lord’s heart.
    She ruined Miss’ Spirit Flower, so she must pay.
    The maid sets her mind to it, “And precisely because the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is hard to find, it’s even more important that she pay for it.”
    “I remember my lady saying that if this Spirit Flower appears on the market, it would be worth… at least ten million gold coins. If she can’t come up with a Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, let her compensate for its price in gold. And she absolutely couldn’t escape from that hundred lashes either.”
    Han Ye blinks, “Ten million gold coins ah, this isn’t a small amount, is it? I’m afraid that an ordinary person wouldn’t be able to earn it all in their lifetime.”
    “This is her punishment for courting disaster!” the maid’s eyes are shining as she stares at Muyan, her gaze is brimming with malice, “If she really cannot pay with money, I think it would be right to sell her to Ghost City’s Wan Ren Ku. With her good looks, she would definitely be able to fetch a good price. Then when she works like a horse for several decades in the Ghost City, there would come a day where she would be able to make up for ten million gold coins.”
    As soon as these words are said, a change comes over the faces of everyone present.
    Even Han Ye’s eyes somewhat darken.
    Not to mention Di Ming Jue.
    There’s already a thick, dark-red killing intent that is welling up within his eyes.
    Ying Mei is under the impression that Di Ming Jue really wants to punish Muyan because of the Spirit Flower.
    Bending a knee, she kneels down in a flash, “Jun Shang, the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower was killed by this subordinate. If it’s compensation, please let this subordinate pay for it, by no means could Miss Jun be wrongly accused.”
    Muyan frowns, wanting to step forward and help her up.
    But Di Ming Jue has already taken the initiative to release her, slowly making his way until he arrives before the Spirit Flower that had withered.
    “If you damage something, it would only be fair to receive punishment, as well as provide compensation according to its value.”
    The man’s voice is bone-piercingly cold, making everyone at the scene shiver uncontrollably.
    However, the meaning in those words is making the maid violently happy.
    Even forgetting to be scared of that ruthless killing intent in the atmosphere.
    She’s proud of herself as she looks at Muyan, anticipating the other woman’s miserable end.
    “How can you prove that she is the one who killed this flower?”
    The man’s ice-cold voice rings once more.

Chapter 332: ‘Be good’- your sister!!
    The maid turns around to angrily point towards Muyan, “It’s her, she was actually planning to steal the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, even making her pet go and trample it.”
    “Even though this servant immediately stepped forward to stop her, it was still too late, and she has already killed one of these precious flowers.”
    Saying that, the maid points towards the withered Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, her tears falling even more fiercely.
    Looking like she really suffered through all kinds grievances.
    Ying Mei listens to her words that invert black and white, her complexion turning a little green from anger.
    But she has always been bad at expressing herself, and the black-clothed guards in the courtyard are all habitually silent.
    “Jun Shang, the matter is not as she says it is, Miss Jun did not…”
    “How is it not so?” the maid rips a scream out of her throat, “You dare say that she didn’t want to steal the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower just now?”
    “You dare say that you didn’t threaten me just a moment ago, wanting to kill and silence me?”
    Ying Mei’s face turns red, tightly clenching both hands into fists, but she couldn’t come up with anything to say.
    She has always been better at speaking with swords and fists.
    But this time, she simply cannot allow Miss Jun to be wrongly accused.
    Ying Mei takes a step forward, and just as she’s about to speak, a hand presses down on her shoulder.
    Muyan slowly walks forward, patting Ying Mei’s shoulder and sending her a shallow smile.
    Then she indifferently looks at Di Ming Jue, “I ruined the flower, what about it?”
    Muyan’s voice is bone-piercingly cold.
    Even those peach blossom eyes that are usually gleaming with the reflection of waves in sunlight, also seem to condense into ice.
    Di Ming Jue instinctively doesn’t like seeing her with this kind of expression. He furrows his brows.
    Hearing Muyan’s words, the maid immediately shouts out, “Gongzi, you heard that, she admits it. You did it on purpose, didn’t you? You deliberately ruined my lady’s Dark Clouds Spirit Flower!”
    Muyan looks at her with indifferent eyes, her expression is heedless beyond words, “Yeah, I did it on purpose. What can you do about me?”
    “I cultivated these Spirit Flowers, what can you do if I don’t want to give any of them to your Miss?”
   Saying that, she raises her hands, intending to take away the remaining three flowers.
   What happened just now, she doesn’t want to experience that again – seeing with her own eyes how the flowers that she has raised herself wither, the scene of their lives getting snuffed out.
    Before her Internal Force could touch the flowers however,
    She has her wrists captured by Di Ming Jue.
    Her Internal Force is contained, and she naturally couldn’t take the Dark Clouds Flowers anymore.
    Muyan snaps her head up at Di Ming Jue, and there’s finally a bit more anger in her eyes, “Let go!”
    Not only does Di Ming Jue keep his hold, his fingertips are even caressing her wrists gently, like flirting.
    “Be good, I still have some use for these flowers.”
    ‘Be good’ – your sister!!
    You want to use the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers that this Miss has painstakingly raised, all to curry favor with your lover!
    Di Ming Jue, you want to die, you better die, just die ah!
    The maid sees this scene and she’s stumped for words.
    Isn’t this Lord’s attitude towards this gardener rather too intimate?
    Could it be that he’s really been seduced by this fox gardener’s wiles?
    “Gongzi, this person deliberately killed the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, you mustn’t let her off lightly!”
    Di Ming Jue coldly looks at that maid. He doesn’t say anything.
    Han Ye steps forward from the side, all smiles as he asks: “Oh, then what do you say should be done?”
    The maid immediately replies: “The Spirit Flowers that Gongzi wants to give to my lady, which one is not worth a city, which one is easy to find in the world – more importantly, what of the Gongzi’s intentions towards my Miss?”
    “This person is so vile, even killing the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower that Gongzi wanted to give to my lady. If not punished severely, wouldn’t that be an insult to Gongzi’s intentions?”

Chapter 331: The Lord won’t let you off
    Everyday, they listened to her play the zither, sway gently whenever she touches them – like living beings that have attachments to her, responding to her.
    But at this very moment, one of these beautiful and frail little flowers has withered.
    Muyan can even feel the loss of a breathing life from the air.
    The maid’s face is filled with alarm.
    She stares in shock at the black ashes that remain within her hands– then at the dead leaves of the withered Dark Clouds Spirit Flower.
    She looks at Muyan, then at the fat rabbit that has already returned to her side.
    She suddenly screeches loudly, getting up, “It was you, you’re definitely the one who did something and made this Spirit Flower wither, right?”
    “That’s right, you’re definitely jealous of my Miss for obtaining that Lord’s favor so you instructed that rabbit to purposely kill that Dark Clouds Spirit Flower… I’ll get you for this!”
    Saying that, she stomps her foot and suddenly pounces towards Muyan.
    The strong Internal Force coming out of her is unexpectedly that of a peak Earth Stage practitioner.
    Before the maid could get near Muyan however, Ying Mei takes a step forward, holding out her hand to block the maid’s way.
    Ying Mei’s gaze is unspeakably cold.
    She has always been fond of killing to stop killing: a person who uses violence to curb violence.
    Ordinarily, this woman who dared to insult Jun Muyan would have already been dead after a ruthless persecution.
    The maid shudders violently under Ying Mei’s eyes. The Internal Force that had originally condensed on the hollow of her palm also disintegrates due to fear.
    She opens her trembling lips, “You… what do you want to do, I am Shi Xianzi’s personal maid – if you hurt me, the Lord won’t let you off!”
    Ying Mei sneers, the light in her pupils is like a blade, “If I kill you and bury you underneath the soil, no one would know that you came here, do you… want to try it?”
    The maid widens her eyes in horror, and just as she’s about to say something-
    She suddenly catches a glimpse of a few figures from the corner of her eyes.
    Her form leans backwards, and she directly tumbles down to the ground. Soon after, she lets out a pained wail, “It hurts, what do you want to do… you people ruined the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, now you still want to kill and silence me? Wuu, wuu…”
    Ying Mei has a flash of understanding and she raises her head. Seeing the figures coming to their side, she promptly kneels down on the ground, “Seeing Jun Shang!”
    The black-clothed guards in the courtyard kneel down simultaneously, “Jun Shang!”
    In a split second, Muyan is the only one standing by herself in this courtyard.
    Di Ming Jue’s eyes look towards her.
    Only to see that the young woman’s skin under the sunlight is so white, almost transparent.
    Long eyelashes are slightly hanging down, covering up the rays of light in her eyes.
    The corners of her mouth are slightly curled up, rippling like an enticing smile that seems to exist and vanish.
    But this smile doesn’t have the smallest bit of it’s usual inviting playfulness, as it is laced with a chill instead.
    Di Ming Jue frowns, coldly saying: “What’s the matter?”
    The maid who’s crying on the ground secretly raises her eyes to take a look at the arriving man, and her eyes fills up with astonishment.
    Her face also goes very red in bashfulness.
    Growing up to this age, she has never seen a man that can have such a handsome appearance as this mysterious Lord in front of her.
    This man’s beauty that day, the nobility that casts a sidelong glance at all the land under the heavens…
    It’s no wonder that her Miss, who doesn’t eat the food of common mortals*, also topples over this man’s elegant bearing.
  • placing oneself above the common populace
    The maid sees Di Ming Jue getting closer and closer, impatience rising up in his eyes from the lack of a response.
    She quickly steadies her mind, getting up to a kneeling position. With a sobbing tone: “Replying to Gongzi.”
    “Yesterday, your guard came to inform Miss, saying that the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers would be ready today.”
    “Miss was worried that the Spirit Flower would get damaged during the collection process, so she specially had this servant come over and take a look, and at the same time, have this servant personally pick the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.”
    “But as soon as this slave arrived, I saw her–”

Chapter 330: Important Reason
     Shi Lanling is more low-key. Rather, you can say that she mainly offers her services to the Ghost City.
    She will not easily undertake a task, unless it’s through the Ghost City’s connections.
    As a result, her name is not as well-known as Jian Feng’s.
    But in those days, Muyan once heard Gong Qianxue mention that this Shi Lanling’s level in alchemy is not lower than Jian Feng’s.
    Seeing Muyan’s absent-minded expression, and the way she’s not saying anything, the maid thinks that Muyan is intimidated by her Miss’ reputation.
    She can’t help but snort. With an arrogant expression, her manner of speaking has actually become a little better.
    “You also can’t blame me for speaking unpleasantly just a moment ago. My family’s Miss has been waiting for these Spirit Flowers for a very long time. A country bumpkin like you who doesn’t know anything about medicine better not tinker around with it.”
    “Cultivating this Spirit Flower is extremely difficult. The owner of this courtyard has spent an enormous amount of care and effort in order to give this to my Miss. Had you accidentally killed it, you won’t be able to compensate for it, even if you were flayed, boned, and sold.”
    Muyan slowly lifts up her eyes, “You said these flowers are for Shi Lanling?”
    “Naturally!” the maid looks at her contemptuously, “I’ll have you know that your Master has already found my family’s Miss a month ago, saying that he will send the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower in a month, for my Miss to use it in alchemy.”
    “But my lady knows that this flower is too precious, and she fears that it would be no good if it was plucked up by you people, with your rough hands and feet. That’s why she sent me to take a look.”
    “Humph, fortunately I came. The Spirit Flower that the Lord specially cultivated for my Miss would have certainly been killed off by you, this rough-handed country bumpkin.”
    Muyan’s lips slowly curls up, a bright and beautiful smile bursts forth on her absolutely gorgeous face.
    But the more enticing and moving her smile gets, the colder her eyes become – like chilling frost.
    “So as it turns out, the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is very important to him, and it’s important here!”
    Ying Mei anxiously looks at Muyan, wanting to say something, but unable to speak out a word.
    She has followed by Jun Shang’s side for so many years, and she knows better than anyone else – there has never been a woman in the world who could receive Jun Shang’s good words and good treatment, except for Miss Jun.
    Even Leng Qingwan, heir of Tian Yi Men, has never entered Jun Shang’s eyes.
    To say nothing of this so called Shi-fairy.
    “Miss Jun, you mustn’t misunderstand, Jun Shang, he… to you…”
    Ying Mei has yet to finish what she’s saying, when that maid comes over with a cold look.
    Her eyes closely regard Muyan with loathing, scanning her up and down. Then the maid spits, “So you’re the one they say, that vixen who’s seducing the Lord all day long?”
    “I’ve heard that you’re responsible in looking after this Spirit Flower, heh… a country bumpkin growing flowers, you don’t really believe that you could climb the Master’s bed by just relying on a little bit of good looks, right? Pah, really have no sense of shame!”
    “Fortunately, I didn’t let you touch the Spirit Flowers just now. Otherwise, this pure and holy flower would have been sullied by you.”
    Saying that, the maid takes out a small jade box and stoops down, reaching out to pluck the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.
    “Owoo–!”
    The fat rabbit crouching by Muyan’s side suddenly lets out a beast-like howl.
    It’s body leaps up and rushes towards the maid.
    It’s small mung bean eyes are filled with anxiety.
    But in the end, it’s movements are still a step too late.
    And they see, that the moment the maid’s hand touches the flower, the plant that Muyan has cultivated with utmost care for six days, using eight hours every day to play the zither on – the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower withers and dies at the speed visible to the naked eye.
    Everyone present have their eyes wide open, overwhelmed with shock and horror as they look at this scene.
    Muyan’s heart constricts, and there’s an indescribable sadness and grievance bubbling up within it.
    That flower cost her six days of hard work.

Chapter 329: Jun Shang’s guest
 
    There’s a small young woman in green clothes, her hair tied up in two loops.
 
    Her appearance could also be regarded as delicate and lovely, but the overbearing arrogance and willfulness on her face is making her features look harsh.
 
    The girl raises her head to look at Muyan’s appearance, and a trace of astonishment flashes through her eyes.
 
    Soon after, her brows furrow even tighter.
 
    She puts both hands on her hips and faces Muyan, making a big fuss as she says, “You should know that these Dark Cloud Spirit Flowers are something that my Miss wants to use for alchemy, what’s to be done if you ruined it?”
 
    Muyan narrows her eyes, “And you are?”
 
    The fat rabbit by her feet bares its teeth, letting out a strange growl.
 
    Ying Mei’s expression becomes even colder. She takes a step forward and gets ready to make a move.
 
    She will not allow anyone to slight Miss Jun.
 
    But the girl disdainfully sneers: “Me? I am Shi Xianzi’s personal maid. I’ve come at this time at the orders of my family’s Miss, to collect the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.”
 
    “By my lady’s estimate, the Spirit Flower will blossom by wu-shi (11am-1pm) today… fortunately, I’ve come a little bit early. Otherwise, this precious Spirit Flower would’ve definitely been ruined by a country bumpkin like you.”
 
    Country bumpkin?! This woman actually dares to say that Muyan is a country bumpkin?!
 
    To say nothing of Ying Mei’s cold murderousness, even the black-clothed guards at the sidelines are all showing extremely bad expressions as well.
 
    Their Miss Jun can cultivate the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, when no one else has been capable of accomplishing that for thousands of years.
 
    She can make the four seasons turn in the whole medicine field, and make the herbs grow madly (those precious herbs that have matured in the medicine field during these past few days, have been directly picked off by these black-clothed guards).
 
    Their Miss Jun is the brilliant and famous Enchantress of Medicine of Tianyuan City. She could make the dying have an astounding recovery, and seize their lives away from within the underworld’s grasp.
 
    This awe-inspiring person is actually being called a country bumpkin.
 
    Just where’d this woman’s face come from?!
 
    This maid seems to have finally sensed the murderous intent from the surroundings, as she shrinks her neck back, showing a trace of fear.
 
    But soon, she straightens her back and puffs out her chest, coldly snorting as she says: “The Master of this courtyard had personally come to the Ghost City for my Miss and had invited her over. You people dare to disrespect me, aren’t you afraid that your Master will peel your skins off?”
 
    As soon as she says this, the black-clothed guards aren’t the only ones to have a change come over their expressions.
 
    Even Ying Mei is stumped, the killing intent on her body vanishes without a trace.
 
    Jun Shang’s invited guest?
 
    Seeing the change in these people’s movements, the maid is all the more proud of herself. Lifting her chin, she haughtily says: “Don’t you guys know, just how many people in the entire Yanwu Continent want to invite our Miss to come over? It is your greatest honor to have our Miss willing to come here…”
 
    “Shi Xianzi… your Miss is Shi Lanling?”
 
    Muyan suddenly asks.
 
    The maid looks at her in surprise, but soon becomes even more arrogant, “It seems like you still have some knowledge. That’s right, Shi Lanling is my family’s Miss. However, my Miss’ taboo name isn’t something that a country bumpkin like you can say casually.”
 
    Ying Mei’s has a sharp expression in her eyes, and she can’t wait to chop this person up into thousands of pieces for humiliating Miss Jun.
 
    But she remembers that this person is someone that Jun Shang invited over, so she still reigns back her anger.
 
    The light in Muyan’s eyes congeals, and she doesn’t bother with the maid.
 
    That’s because she’s thinking of her previous life.
 
    This Shi Lanling, the one called Shi Xianzi, also had a reputation back in that life.
 
    Up to the point of Muyan’s death in her past lifetime, it’s known there were only a total of two alchemists in the entire Yanwu Continent.
 
    One of them is Gong Qianxue’s senior brother, a brilliant student of the Heavenly Road Sect – Jian Feng.
 
    And the other is the Ghost City’s fairy – Shi Lanling.
 
    It’s just, compared to the show-off Jian Feng,
 
    Shi Lanling is more low-key. Rather, you can say that she mainly offers her services to the Ghost City.
 

EMHS – ch328

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 328: Happily rolling about
    The fresh and clean fragrance that is filling the air is very mild, but it could erase the troubles in people’s hearts, pleasing their spirits.
    This legendary Spiritual Flower is very beautiful indeed.
    But in Ying Mei’s mind, she really thinks that Miss Jun is still better-looking than these flowers.
    Muyan gently touches the petals of the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, the young and delicate little sprout sways softly, like it’s waving at her.
    She recalls what’s written in that ancient text inside the Space, that petals of the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower will turn a lustrous blue color like the deep sea.
    It would mean that the flowers have really reached maturity.
    She probably doesn’t need to play for eight hours today.
    She would be able to harvest the flowers’ cores soon.
    Just as Muyan is about to summon the Tian Mo Qin, there’s a sudden flash of white, and a chubby rabbit appears by her foot.
    “Hm?” Muyan picks the fat rabbit up by its scruff, and there’s curiosity across her whole face, “Fat rabbit, I thought you’ve already slept yourself to death inside the space? So you were actually still alive?”
    The rabbit blinks at Muyan, its mung bean eyes looking particularly innocent.
    It moves its legs, hinting for Muyan to put it down.
    The rabbit’s eyes are eagerly looking at the direction of the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.
    Muyan lets it go, but she narrows her eyes, a dangerous expression inside of them, and says: “If you dare to eat these Spirit Flowers, I will eat stir-fried rabbit meat tonight.”
    The fat rabbit shudders. Raising it’s head up, the expression in it’s eyes becomes increasingly innocent and beseeching.
    It gives a rub, and moves its fat body towards the Spirit Flower’s side.
   Against expectations, it really doesn’t go to touch the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers. Instead, it lies down on its stomach, at a place that’s extremely close to the petals.
    The rabbit even takes a deep breath like a human would, mung bean eyes revealing a look of pleasure.
    Muyan suspiciously looks at the rabbit for a moment. Upon seeing that it really wouldn’t touch the flowers, she takes out the Tian Mo Qin and begins to play the instrument.
    Ying Mei’s line of sight can’t help but fall on the fat rabbit.
    She slightly wrinkles her brows, revealing a hint of curiosity.
    This rabbit’s outward appearance seems very ordinary, but Ying Mei feels like it has a strange breath in its body, which feels intractable and awe-inspiring.
    The zither starts to play, and the immortal sound rises up in spirals.
    The plants in the courtyard sway in intoxication.
    At the same time, the bewitched fat rabbit is also swaying its head.
    The song reaches its climax, and the fragrance of the Spirit Flowers becomes stronger.
    The fat rabbit excitedly rolls while lying down, almost crushing several herbs to death underneath it.
    No one notices how the originally snow white fur on its body has become shinier and smoother after this song, lustrous like jade.
    A pair of mung bean eyes look at Muyan, stirred up and brimming with excitement.
    It’s really correct in following after the Little Master and the Female Devil.
    Even in such a damnable area like the Yanwu Continent, it could still advance.
    The sound of the zither falls, and Muyan puts the Tian Mo Qin away. She looks at the four Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers, her eyes filled with fascinated surprise.
    The beautiful and exquisitely-detailed petals have now become purer, like blue ice crystals.
    Suffocatingly gorgeous.
    The flower at the center sways softly with the wind, there’s a touch of pale pink, which is the only color on the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower aside from the blue.
    Muyan holds her breath and takes out a jade box, preparing to gather the flowers into the small container.
     Before she could fully reach out her hand however, a shrill, angry shout could be heard from behind her.
    “What are you doing?!!”
    Muyan is stumped, and just as she’s about to get up, she feels a huge force knocking her away.
    The flustered and exasperated voice speaks once again, “Are you crazy? Knowing what this is, you actually dare to casually touch it without thinking!!”
    Ying Mei has swift eyes and quick hand as she helps Muyan, she has an extremely bad expression as she looks at the incoming person.
    Muyan also looks over.
    There’s a small young woman in green clothes, her hair in tied up in two loops.

EMHS – ch327

Chapter 327: A living treasure*
  • hilarious person, like a clown.
    Looking at the man’s decisively leaving back, Muyan immediately feels stifled.
    What’s the big deal, if it comes to it, she could just go back and plant the two remaining seeds.
    However, she remembers that the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower requires Di Ming Jue’s help in order to bloom.
    She could only sigh in helplessness.
    Why is this man so stingy – she had to spit out her heart and spill her blood to raise these flowers!
    Sure enough, her dear Xiao Bao is still better.
    In the short span of six days, she thinks she’s quickly going insane from missing her baby.
    ===
    Maybe it’s because the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is about to completely bloom-
    Muyan tosses and turns for the entire evening and she’s unable to sleep properly, only wishing she could soon see Xiao Bao.
    At the crack of dawn, she gets up and makes her way to the medicine field.
    But as soon as she walks into the garden, she hears a faint sound of screaming from the western side of the house.
    “Ouch! Little Shadow, you’re going to kill me!”
    “Taking you to the brothel, wasn’t it for your own good? Have you open your mind, gain knowledge and experiences, and know that there are many women in the world… ow, ow, ouch… stop hitting, I was wrong, I was wrong, okay? I wouldn’t dare do it in the future!”
    “But I’m just urging you, Miss Jun is the Master’s woman, you must never let yourself be carried away by fanciful thoughts. That would naturally court disaster ah!
    Immediately following that is a ‘bang’ that resounds within the early morning’s silence.
    Then there’s the clear and cold juvenile timbre, “Idiot, do you have bean curds for brains?”
    ……
    Muyan chuckles and smiles.
    This Han Ye could really be a living treasure.
    And could also be quite silly.
    He interacts with Ying Mei all the time, when will he finally find out that the other is a woman?
    The corner of Muyan’s mouth quirks up, and she slowly walks towards the direction of the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.
    Not a lot of steps away, Ying Mei silently catches up with her, only to stand half a step at her rear left.
    Muyan casts her a sidelong glance, with a smile that isn’t a smile, “Beauty, I heard that you’re getting carried away by fanciful thoughts towards me, and it just so happens that I also yearn for you day and night, you should just run away with me!”
    Saying that, she even reaches out to hook Ying Mei’s chin up, wearing a face of a rich evil tyrant who’s taking liberties with a beautiful woman.
    Ying Mei’s face immediately bursts to deep red, at a loss on what to do. She can only speak helplessly after a long while: “Miss Jun, stop making jokes.”
    Miss Jun, this person is just like this, she’s especially fond of teasing Ying Mei.
    Muyan unrestrainedly laughs once again, only to release the other’s chin. However, she doesn’t take her hand back, but directly grasps Ying Mei’s wrist, pulling the other to stand right beside her.
    “Come, follow me to go and take a look at the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers.”
    Ying Mei sets about to move her hand, seemingly wanting to break away. But after Muyan grasps her firmly once more, she slightly blushes and allows Muyan to pull her along as they walk forwards.
    Miss Jun’s fingers around her wrist are very warm, with the kind of warmth that sinks into her heart.
    Her chest, which is usually in intolerable pain, is also comfortably warm at this moment.
    Since her whole family has been slaughtered, leading her to carry a hatred as deep as an ocean of blood, she has never felt as relaxed as she does at this moment – so tranquil.
    Ying Mei can’t help but glance at the girl beside her, and the light in her eyes becomes brighter and brighter.
    “What are you looking at me for?” Muyan suddenly turns her head, giggling as she looks at Ying Mei, “Do I look better than the Spirit Flowers?”
    Then Ying Mei meets Muyan’s mischievous eyes, and she flushes red in bashfulness, not knowing what to do with her hands and feet.
    Taking in a deep breath, she follows Muyan’s line of sight.
    Only to see the Dark Clouds Spirit Flowers under the light of the sun, their blue branches and leaves are sparkling and translucent, pure and limpid, like she could almost see the plant sap flowing inside.
    And those light blue flowers that have blossomed yesterday, they have already changed into an icy-blue at this moment.
