Chapter 438: It can’t be him
    On account of this suspicion, she even indirectly asked Di Ming Jue whether or not he had come to the Yanwu Continent five years ago.
    But the answer that she received–
    The last time Di Ming Jue had come to the Yanwu Continent was several decades ago.
    At that time, Jun Muyan hasn’t even been born yet.
    Moreover, that day and night in the darkness, what that man had left her wasn’t a good memory at all.
    Even now that she’s no longer the weak, crying little girl from back then-
    An instinctual fear still wells up whenever she thinks of that burning, chaotic darkness.
    Muyan shakes her head, throwing these nonsensical thoughts to the back of her mind.
    How could Di Ming Jue be that man?
    Ru Yan must’ve made her go dizzy, and that’s why she could have this kind of thoughts.
    “Miss!” she hears Ru Yan’s voice by her ears, “The Third Price has woken up.”
    Muyan’s eyes light up, but she can’t help but let out a long sigh.
    Lou Beiyu is finally awake.
    Bai Yichen and Lou Beiyu’s injures were quite severe.
    Even though the draught had pulled their lives out of danger, the injuries in their muscles, veins, and Qi Sea couldn’t be treated by medicine.
    As a result, Muyan had used the Shen Musician technique that she had just unlocked, [Realm of Stars].
    After the Tian Mo Qin had completed it’s repairs, her Spiritual Roots had been reconstructed.
    Her abilities as a Shen Musician has finally upgraded to level two.
    In addition to a few area attacks and group support skills getting their scopes expanded, like in [Echo Recovery] and [Sound Blades],
    She also obtained several new skills, and [Realm of Stars] is one of them.
    When using the Tian Mo Qin to play [Realm of Stars], nine stars will appear on her patients’ whole body, and slowly form an illusory realm.
    In this illusory realm, the patient will experience a chaotic dream.
    Whether it becomes a good dream or a nightmare, it’s entirely dependent upon the song Muyan plays.
    The dream can make a person indulge in an illusion, unconsciously healing the wounds on their bodies.
    The nightmare could make a person be in so much pain that they would wish for death, and the injuries they suffer within the illusion would all be reflected on their physical bodies.
    But the [Realm of Stars] has a very big drawback.
    That is, if the person immersed in the illusion doesn’t have a willpower that is strong enough, it is awfully probable that they will forever indulge in the illusion, not wanting to wake up.
    Bai Yichen’s vengeful heart is very determined, so he woke up very quickly.
    Of course, most of his injuries could only remain unhealed.
    Muyan originally wanted to use the [Realm of Stars] again, but he declined.
    Bai Yichen believes that when he’s this battered and bruised, looking like he narrowly escaped from death – he is unlikely to incur any suspicion when he approaches Jian Feng and Gong Qianxue.
    However, Lou Beiyu’s will hasn’t woken him up ever since he entered the Realm of Stars.
    Even though his injuries have almost completely healed already, so much so that his body has become stronger, as if he’s been reborn-
    Muyan had still been worried that he would never wake up.
    Today, it ultimately turns out that these worries are for naught.
    ……
    As he slowly opens his eyes, Lou Beiyu is a bit disoriented.
    Then the memories gradually come back into his mind.
    There are dreams, but also realities.
    In the end, the chaotic dream slowly fades away, replaced by the harsh reality.
    “Master–!! Scoundrels, you people are not allowed to touch my Master!!”
    Lou Beiyu suddenly sits up from the bed, his two hands flailing about.
    However, what enters his eyes isn’t the wedding that has been driving him into madness – but it is a clean and tidy room instead.
    This… what is going on?
    Wasn’t he just at the wedding, obstructing that wretched Jin Wang?
    Why is he suddenly here?
    Wait, isn’t his hand ruined?
    Aren’t the muscles and veins in his whole body damaged?
    Why doesn’t he feel even a little bit of soreness right now, but instead, he even feels unusually good and comfortably warm all over?

Chapter 437: A debt of blood must be paid in blood
    “But… before the wedding could take place, that woman suddenly went on a rampage, kill… killing Jin Wang and everyone in the Wangfu.”
    “If Sir Bai hadn’t saved this apprentice, then I would also be dead by now.”
    Gong Qianxue and Jian Feng shift their line of sight towards Bai Yichen, and there’s a minute change in their expressions, “The Dustless Swordsman, Bai Yichen?”
    The leading young talent of Yanwu Continent who used to be as famous as Gong Qianxue… at this moment, his appearance is wretched beyond words, and his body’s Internal Force is almost gone. He evidently received a heavy injury.
    Qing Feng promptly says: “Yichen had been seriously hurt in order to save me. His Qi Sea was almost destroyed, his throat had almost been crushed as well. Now, he couldn’t even speak normally. Master, you must help Yichen, now he… he is probably the only one left who had seen that woman!”
    Gong Qianxue’s pupils suddenly contract, “Have you really seen the form of the Immortal… the true identity of the person who caused that Heavenly Vision?”
    Bai Yichen nods, opening his mouth to say two words with some difficulty, “I have.”
    His body is tottering, like it’s going to collapse at any moment.
    The light in Gong Qianxue’s eyes gets brighter and brighter, and there’s dense excitement and greed along with it.
    But the words that come out of her mouth is of pity and anxiousness, “Senior Brother! Sir Bai saved Qing Feng, so he is a benefactor of our Heavenly Road Sect. Senior Brother, you must save him, okay?”
    Jian Feng faintly smiles, and he looks at Gong Qianxue with eyes filled with adoration, “Rest assured, Junior Sister. Even though his injuries are very heavy, your Senior Brother will never allow  him to die. Sir Bai, would you please come with us, back to the Heavenly Road Sect? It’s the only place that has enough medicinal ingredients that can cure your wounds.”
    Bai Yichen shows a grateful expression and nods.
    Soon after, he lowers his eyes, and the corners of his mouth slowly curl up.
    His left hand is hidden beneath its sleeve, a bracelet patterned with blood-like veins is clutched in its palm.
    His silently murmurs in his mouth: “Sitong, don’t worry, I… could soon avenge you. Wait until I kill that woman, I will immediately go down to accompany…”
    As soon as the yearning for death rises up in his mind, Muyan’s words seem to echo in his ears, “Come back alive, and become the leader of my Taixu Division.”
    The deathly stillness and the madness in his eyes slowly recedes, finally changing into a cool-headed decisiveness that is without any regrets.
    In any case, he will have Gong Qianxue pay her debts in blood.
    ===
    From Huang Yao, the carriage slowly returns to Tianyuan City.
    When they went to the Jin Wangfu, they used a spirited horse at the gallop, so the speed of travel had been very fast.
    As they’re returning, Muyan feels that they’re not in a hurry, so she let the carriage move forwards in a leisurely pace.
    When they’re hungry or thirsty, they stop and rest.
    What surprises Muyan is the pair of big and small – who still didn’t see eye to eye, nor nose to nose before she left – now, they’re getting along with unexpected harmony.
    Especially as Xiao Bao can only stick to her before.
    No one could say anything to make Xiao Bao change his mind.
    But now, a word from Di Ming Jue, and Xiao Bao will promptly and obediently do as told, though it’s with some reluctance to leave her.
    Even Ru Yan and Feng Haitang are also beginning to be skeptical.
    “Miss, Xiao Bao is Jun Shang’s son, isn’t he?”
    The three of them together as a family, that picture is really too harmonious.
    Jun Muyan watches the two figures ahead, of the big one holding and leading the small one along. There’s a fleeting listlessness in her expression.
    Soon after, she has a bitter smile as she shakes her head, “Don’t be deluded, how is that possible?”
    Of course, she had also thought of this possibility.
    Xiao Bao had never been close to other people, but he’s willing to do so with Di Ming Jue.
    Xiao Bao’s eyes also so similar to Di Ming Jue’s

Chapter 436: Just who did he provoke?
    Di Ming Jue lowers his head, and softly kisses her lips. Gentle and tender beyond words, but also with a cautious solemnity of losing something and then regaining it.
    For the first time, Muyan doesn’t resist, but she lightly grabs the man’s sleeves and responds to his kiss.
    This kiss isn’t frantic or invasive, but it lingers like the two individuals are melting into an integral whole.
    It’s only after a long time that Di Ming Jue is able to let go of Muyan’s lips, which are already red and swollen. His voice is husky as he slowly say: “In the future, you’re not allowed to put yourself in danger.”
    “You’re not allowed to give special treatment to other men!”
    “Even more, you’re not allowed to get too close to other men!”
    As for the method of punishment, that’s of course “Misbehave and I will spank your butt”.
    Jun Shang-daren moves the hand that had just hit Muyan’s bottom. His ears are a little red, and he somewhat wishes to continue.
    His hand feels unexpectedly good, he… he really wants to give it another try.
    Bang–!!
    Jun Shang-daren, who was just in the middle of fantasizing, is directly kicked down from the bed.
    Muyan has a grim smile: “Di Ming Jue, you better not appear in front of me for three days, or else, humph…”
    Just as Han Ye passes by Muyan’s room,
    He sees his family’s Jun Shang getting shoved out.
    Even though Jun Shang’s appearance is still handsome without equal; even though Jun Shang’s temperament is still as cold and stern as the pine trees in the high mountains, eminent and unapproachable-
    Han Ye still feels that he’s watching Jun Shang cut a sorry figure.
    “Jun Shang, this subordinate has come to deliver lunch, aren’t you going to have your noontime meal with Miss Jun?”
    Di Ming Jue coldly looks at him. With a chillingly calm tone, he slowly says: “After you return, go to the Purgatory Pool and stay there for a month.”
    “??!!!!!!”
    Looking at the cold face of the departing Di Ming Jue, Han Ye is simply left chaotic in the wind: damn it, just who did he provoke?!
    ……
   All the people in the Jin Wangfu that should have their memories erased have been given draughts, and those who should be silenced have been killed.
    But in the end, they can’t stay there for too long.
    On the third day, they have finished accounting for all the looted goods in the Jin Wangfu, as well as the people they’ve acquired. Along with the members of the Ink Camp and Di Ming Jue’s party, they all return to Tianyuan City.
    In the calm Imperial Capital of Huang Yao, a roaring fire suddenly rages up to the sky.
    The people in the surroundings respond by coming over, fetching water and extinguishing the fire. But after that, they discover that the formerly flourishing Jin Wangfu has already been burned to the ground.
    Jian Feng noticed the soul lamp of his apprentice Qing Feng flicker and get dimmer, making him know that the other’s life is in danger. As a result, he hurriedly rushed over with Gong Qianxue.
    But they only see that Jin Wangfu has turned into ruins and scorched earth.
    They asked the people of Huang Yao, but nobody knows why Jin Wangfu had caught fire.
    Even in the entire country of Haung Yao, there’s unexpectedly barely anyone who knows that Jin Wang was previously about to get married, much less who the bride was going to be!
    Just as Jian Feng and Gong Qianxue are reeling in bewilderment,
    Qing Feng rushes out with the help of Bai Yichen. Both of them are covered in blood and riddled with scars, “Master! Master!”
    “Qing Feng?” Jian Feng quickly prompts for people receive them and give them Elixirs, “What exactly happened?”
    “It… it’s Jin Wang’s new Wangfei, she is the person who caused the Vision of the Array of Nine Heavenly Bodies.”
    “What?!!” Jian Feng and Gong Qianxue simultaneously change color.
    There’s even a greedy light in Gong Qianxue’s eyes, “Did you say that the person who caused that Vision of Nine Stars in an Array was in the Jin Wangfu?”
    Qing Feng looks like he’s on his last breath as he says: “Yes, she was the woman that Martial Uncle was going to marry, she caused the Vision.”

Chapter 435: Softhearted
    A heavy spank falls on her ass.
    Pa–!
    The sound is very loud, and there’s a burning pain on her butt.
    But… but this isn’t the important point.
    Muyan is simply going mad, “Di Ming Jue, you scoundrel, what on earth are you doing?!”
    She hears the man’s cold voice, “Isn’t this what you said? If you don’t behave, you’ll get spanked on the bottom. Muyan, tell me, didn’t you misbehave a lot this time?”
    Saying that, the second spank falls on her raised butt.
    Aargh! Di Ming Jue, this damned scoundrel!!
    Jun Muyan has grown this big, but she’s never before felt so humiliated and angry that she wants to commit homicide.
    As the third spank lands, Muyan’s figure flashes, suddenly disappearing.
    She’s already beyond caring whether or not Di Ming Jue would discover the secret of the Tian Mo Qin’s Space.
    Right now, she just wants to rip off all the clothes on this man, and whip him until he kneels down and begs for mercy.
    Seeing the girl disappear from his lap, Di Ming Jue slightly narrows his eyes.
    There’s a dangerous light flickering in his pupils.
    Muyan’s breath is so perfectly concealed that even Di Ming Jue could barely feel it.
    This doesn’t merely signify an increase in Muyan’s strength.
    But it’s more of an indication that the Tian Mo Qin’s Space has become more stable because of its first restoration.
    But so what if it’s become more stable? This little woman will never escape his palm.
    Di Ming Jue slowly closes his eyes, the power within his body surging into motion, and his hand suddenly reaches out to grab into the void.
    In his palm, which should have been empty, appears a girl’s slender snow-white wrist.
    He tugs with little effort, gathering the young woman’s body into his embrace.
    Muyan has been snatched out from the Space, but she’s not panicking much. Before he could notice it, a silver needle appears in her hand.
    Taking advantage of the moment Di Ming Jue has arrested her, she goes to strike the major acupuncture point on the side of his waist.
    In a moment, the tip of the needle is about to go through the man’s clothes and stab into his skin.
    All of a sudden, Di Ming Jue hugs her tightly, and buries his face in her neck, “Yanyan, do you know how scared I was when I found out that you were gone?”
    Muyan abruptly stops in her movements.
    The man’s deep, low voice still carries on, slightly hoarse and trembling, “I was afraid that you will leave me; afraid that you will be taken away; afraid that even though I’m clearly by your side, I’m still unable protect you.”
    Muyan couldn’t stop her needle-wielding hand from shaking a little.
    This scoundrel of a man, they’re not even done yet, but he’s actually trying to soften her up already.
    Just say a few lines of sappy endearments, and he thinks her heart will go soft, and she’ll forget the hatred from him hitting her butt just a moment ago?
    The finger that’s hooked around the needle trembles…
    Damn it, she’s really too softhearted!
    Di Ming Jue straightens up, and bows his head to stare at her.
    The usual indifference and towering aloofness in his eyes are mixed with slivers of almost imperceptible fragility and worry.
    It is precisely these slivers of vulnerability and fear that squeezes Muyan’s heart.
   She quietly takes the silver needle back into the Space.
    Muyan coughs softly and says: “This time, I’ve been crude and impetuous.”
    Even though getting an advancement and going unconscious had been an accident, in the end, it’s because she had been too self-confident and careless.
    “I apologize to you and to Xiao Bao. I will be more careful afterwards and I won’t put myself in danger.”
    Regardless of the past, present, or the future – she wants to take revenge, but in no way would she be heedless about her own life.
    Previously, it was because wants to look after her Xiao Bao.
    Now and in the future, there’s another person who cares about her, whom she would hate to let go and part with.
    This person is called Di Ming Jue.
    Muyan softly acknowledges this in her heart, but she doesn’t say these words out loud.

Chapter 434: Vague Premonition
    From the rough crackling voice that spills out of his mouth, Muyan couldn’t help but be moved by this man’s passion and determination.
    More than that, she knows that this is Bai Yichen’s genuine thoughts and resolution.
    If he doesn’t take revenge, he undoubtedly wouldn’t be placed in danger.
    But if he loses his enmity, that would be equal to him losing his goal, losing his reason to keep on living.
    “If you’ve really made up your mind, then I have a way to let you infiltrate the Heavenly Road Sect.”
    Bai Yichen’s dim eyes suddenly brighten, “What… way?”
    “Do you still remember that Qing Feng guy? He is Jian Feng’s apprentice.”
    Bai Yichen nods.
   “As long as Qing Feng brings you back to the Heavenly Road Sect, and tell Jian Feng and Gong Qianxue that you saved him – why don’t you guess whether or not Jian Feng and Gong Qianxue would receive you?”
   Bai Yichen gapes, “But why would Qing Feng…”
    Muyan couldn’t help but raise the corners of her lips, revealing a sly smile, “Qing Feng wanted to control and turn Xiao Bao into his puppet by using a Wuqi seed, but this resulted to him turning into Xiao Bao’s puppet instead. As time goes by, he would completely and thoroughly surrender to Xiao Bao, and obey Xiao Bao’s orders. Even Jian Feng would absolutely not be able to notice any peculiarities.”
    Bai Yichen’s eyes are opened so wide, and it’s only after quite a long time that he comes back to his senses.
    A long while later, he stands up, and slowly kneels towards Muyan, “Such great favor and kindness, Bai Yichen wouldn’t be able to repay it in this life, but I will work like an ox or a horse in the next life…”
    “I’ve never believed in the afterlife.” Muyan interrupts his rough voice that’s struggling to speak.
    Even if she was reborn, she still believes in seizing the present more than the illusory past life.
    “If you really think that you can’t repay what you owe me, then try hard to survive after you’ve finished your revenge.”
    Muyan continues: “I already have two major forces in my hands – the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit – but this is still incomplete. The Ink Camp the and Tianji Unit are currently independent from each other, and they couldn’t communicate effectively. I still need a [Taixu* Division] to become the link tying the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit together. But so far, I still haven’t found someone I can put in charge of the Taixu Division.”
  • great emptiness; the void
    “Bai Yichen, I hope that you can put your enemies against your blade, then survive and become the leader of the Taixu Division.”
    Bai Yichen is in a sort of daze as he kneels where he is, his hand holds the blood-veined bracelet Lin Sitong had left him.
    For a very long time, he doesn’t get up, he doesn’t move either.
    The young woman’s silvery but powerful and resonating voice seems echo again and again in his ears.
    Bai Yichen snaps his head up, only to find that Muyan’s figure has already disappeared from the room.
    He listlessly recalls Muyan’s words.
    “I hope that you can put your enemies against your blade, then survive and become the leader of the Taixu Division.”
    A light slowly grows brighter within his eyes.
    ……
    However, Bai Yichen didn’t know that the one who said these words really wasn’t going to leave intentionally.
    Instead, she just didn’t have the time to wait for Bai Yichen’s response.
    She’s lifted up by the collar, and directly carried up.
    In a flash, she finds herself thrown to a bed.
    “Di Ming Jue!” Muyan angrily says, “Do you think I’m a sack? Every time, if you’re not hoisting me up, you’re hurling me down!”
   She struggles to get up, but the man pulls her back. With her head down, she’s pressed over his lap.
    Muyan suddenly has a bad premonition in her mind, “Hey, what are you doing?!”
    Her entire body’s Mysterious Energy is running wildly. She wants to struggle and jump down.
    But the man’s fetter is as secure as a city protected by a wall of metal and moat of boiling water, preventing her from moving by even a tiny bit.
    Then, her vague premonition turns into reality.

Chapter 433: To Involve Others
    Ru Yan raises her head, her glamorous face is filled with decisiveness, “We know that Miss would very much want to move against Jing Cheng’s Gong Qianxue, but you fear that we would be in danger, so you can only keep biding your time.”
    “But we follow you, Miss. We serve our Lady, and dedicate our lives to you – how can we let our Lady adjust to accommodate us!”
    Muyan knits her brows and says: “This is my personal grudge against Gong Qianxue and the Heavenly Road Sect, you don’t have to…”
    “Our Lady’s affairs are our business!” Ru Yan resolutely interrupts Muyan’s words, “Since Gong Qianxue is Miss’ enemy, then she is our enemy!”
    Yan Haotian also kneels down, silent but insistent.
    Feng Haitang softly says: “Miss, you have already given us too much.”
    Miraculous draughts, zither treatments, and advancements that everyone under the heaven yearns for even in their dreams – but these aren’t merely for the purpose of using them, these are also because she always cares about their safety.
    “This time, allow us to repay you.”
    The human heart is a living muscle.
    One could say that at first, the members of the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit only pledged their allegiance to Muyan and Xiao Bao simply in order to survive, or to seek profits.
    But slowly, their hearts thoroughly and completely stray from their original intentions.
    They long to follow and guard their Lady and the Little Master for a lifetime, they wish for this warm big household to never collapse and never fall apart.
    “Fine–!”
    After quite a long time, Muyan slowly replies, “However, you have to wait a few more days. Wait for me to try and refine a batch of Elixirs. Everyone that will go out and do their assignments will carry it with them.”
    “Yes, Miss!” Ru Yan and the others instantly grin from ear to ear.
    They watch Muyan get up and leave, promptly bowing to see her off.
    However, just as Muyan’s figure disappears outside the door,
    Old Tao suddenly manages to react, “Hold on! Just now, did Miss just say… Elixir?! Not draught?!”
    All the people in the room immediately have their eyes go wide.
    “E-e-el-elixir?!! Could it be that the Lady could already do alchemy?!”
    ===
    After the meeting with Ru Yan, Yan Haotian and the others, Muyan originally wanted to go back and keep Xiao Bao company.
    But her mood has become somewhat restless because of those guys.
    So she makes a turn and arrives at Lou Beiyu and Bai Yichen’s room.
    The two people’s lives have already been saved. But the aftermath is very serious.
    Especially Bai Yichen-
    Muyan has been able to save his shattered Qi Sea using draughts and acupuncture.
    But for his crushed throat – Muyan tried her best, but she still couldn’t make him recover as before.
    Bai Yichen’s voice was originally mild and smooth as jade, neither low nor high.
    Like the brush of a cool breeze, those who hear it would feel very comfortable.
    But now, it has become rough and crackling, like an old man at death’s door. It’s very unpleasant to hear.
    As Muyan enters the room, Bai Yichen is right in the middle of gently tracing the blood-red patterns on Lin Sitong’s jade bracelet.
    Hearing the movements, Bai Yichen lifts his head and shows a serene, gentle smile.
    Muyan feels somewhat dejected in her heart, “I am sorry. This time, I have compromised you.”
    Bai Yichen shakes his head with a smile. He hesitates for a moment, but still starts to talk: “As a matter of fact, it is I who have compromised you.”
    If she didn’t hold back because of his plans, Muyan would have taken care of the Jin Wangfu at an earlier time.
    She would never have had to let herself get caught up in danger.
    So if you really talk about one causing harm to the other, Muyan had only been compromised by him.
    His manner of speaking is very calm. Nevertheless, Muyan hears persistence and unswerving determination in his voice, “So, are you still planning to exact your vengeance?”
    Bai Yichen nods without the slightest hesitation.
    He slowly clenches the jade bracelet in his hand, “From the moment I knew that Sitong is dead, I’ve already lost my reason to keep on living. Right now, I’m still alive just for the purpose of avenging her.”

Chapter 432: Arrangements
    Old Tao is also very happy. He picks up an ingot and bites it, “In this Jin Wangfu storehouse, there’s so much money, weapons and armors, treasures of gold and silver. In all likelihood, he’s secretly been preparing for a long time, probably wanting to start a coup. He never expected that these would all be for our convenience now!”
    Muyan also couldn’t help but show a small smile.
    Even though Jin Wangye couldn’t really be considered as someone allied to Gong Qianxue, he’s still a person of the Heavenly Road Sect, Senior Brother to Gong Qianxue and Jian Feng.
    She suspects in his lifetime and former incarnations, he’s done many bloody atrocities that cry to heaven.
    Now, she can take the enemy’s supplies to augment her strength, an eventually deal with Gong Qianxue.
    It’s only natural that her mood would be extremely good.
    ……
    Besides the loot, there’s also a lot of people in the Jin Wangfu.
    Apart from those soldiers who have been completely killed, there are also ordinary guards and servants in the Wangfu.
    There are also those poor concubines that have been cheated or snatched by Jin Wang, and have been casually handed down to his subordinates.
    These people are not stained with blood, neither are they aware of Jin Wang’s conduct and deeds.
    Muyan gives them an opportunity to choose.
    Either drink the [Three Days’ Lost Soul] and leave; or join the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit.
    Of course, the people joining can only be considered as Reserve Force.
    But whether they can become real members of the Ink Camp or the Tianji Unit, it ultimately still depends on their performance and character.
    Ru Yan and Yan Haotian are very satisfied with the addition of this batch of people.
    Now, they’ve also come to know that the person that Muyan wants to deal with is Jing Cheng’s Princess Qianxue.
    A country’s princess could hold an unimaginable amount of troops and influence in her hands.
    Not to mention that Gong Qianxue is also a core disciple of the Heavenly Road Sect.
    There’s also Jian Feng, this powerful Master that’s always there for her every beck and call.
    Since she’s taken control of the Tianji Unit, Ru Yan has sent people to investigate the extent of Gong Qianxue’s power.
    But the more they investigate, the scarier it becomes.
    That’s because Gong Qianxue’s schemes and ruthlessness are far beyond what they’ve imagined.
    She’s clearly just a young woman in her twenties, but the power in her grasp is enormous.
    More than that, the blood and the lives that stain this hand of power, it could make one’s hair stand on end.
    ……
    Ru Yan is giving Muyan a report on the situation about the acquired personnel, as well as the looted supplies, “There are a lot of people in the Jin Wangfu who want to become a member of the Tianji Unit, especially those former concubines of Jin Wang – almost none of them want to drink the [Three Days’ Lost Soul] and leave. I’ve also taken a look, and these people are very qualified. I believe that after this, the intelligence that the Tianji Unit could obtain will also scale up accordingly.”
    Having heard that, Muyan gives a light nod, but she can’t help but inwardly sigh.
    Jin Wang had really been too sick and too cruel.
    Even if he acts tyrannically, he still went so far as to bestow these women to his subordinates as soon as he no longer fancies them, letting them get ravaged, and completely disregarding the fate of the women he previously shared an intimate relationship with.
    After experiencing such a hellish life, how could these women go back to their previous lives?
    Ru Yan still continues to speak: “The first batch of spies trained by the Tianji Unit could already begin their assignments. Jingya and I will personally send them to the Imperial Capital of Jing Cheng, and the Xing Lou City of the Heavenly Road Sect.”
    Feng Haitang also speaks on behalf of Yan Haotian: “The Ink Camp will also allocate some people to set up branches in the countries of Huang Yao and Jing Cheng.”
    Muyan quirks up her brows, “You mustn’t act with undue haste on these matters.”
    One can say that the Imperial City of Jing Cheng is right inside Gong Qianxue territory.
    And Huang Yao’s Tai Yi City has it’s skies covered with the hands of the Heavenly Road Sect.
    It would be too dangerous for the people of the Ink Camp and the Tianji Unit to go. What’s more, Ru Yan and Fang Jingya are planning to go by themselves.
