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

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

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

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

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

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.
