Chapter 319: Secret
 
    Muyan rolls her eyes, but she doesn’t expose the man in his lies.
 
    Hence, the two are like so – you eat, I eat, and all the food on such a big table has been consumed.
 
    Di Ming Jue’s expression appears to be as grave and stern as before, but if Elder Chang was here at this moment, he would’ve been able to see-
 
    How cheerful and delighted is the heart of their Jun Shang. Especially that pair of normally cold ice-blue irises. At this moment,  they’re overflowing with glittering waves.
 
    And Muyan also doesn’t notice herself.
 
    Her smiling expression is just as lazy as before, bright and clear – but it’s mixed with a trace  of softness that she would’ve never shown before.
 
    ===
 
    Very late at night.
 
    A black shadow silently lands before Muyan’s door.
 
    It’s extremely quiet inside the house, not the tiniest bit of sound.
 
    The figure slowly lifts its head, revealing a handsome cold face under the light of the moon.
 
    –It’s Ying Mei!
 
    A pair of clear and icy pupils look at the room’s black paint. There’s a rare sliver of hesitation and worry on Ying Mei’s face.
 
    She gently presses her hand over her flat chest, lightly frowning.
 
    Muyan’s words seem to echo in her ears–
 
    They’ve been bound for such a long time, it’s not good for your body.
 
    If you want to know how to solve it, remember to secretly come and find me tonight, zi-shi.
 
    However, can she really ask Muyan about this kind of thing?
 
    Ying Mei can’t remember how many years she has been dressing up as a man.
 
    In the beginning, it was in order to hide from her enemy’s murderous pursuit, a method of self-preservation.
 
    Gradually afterwards, she completely regarded herself as a man.
 
    She has already forgotten how to be a woman.
 
    As far as feminine characteristics go, she only thinks of them as superfluous and embarrassing.
 
    As a result, ever since her body started to develop, Ying Mei used various methods to cover up those characteristics.
 
    She is brutal when facing an enemy, and even more so when facing herself.
 
    If other people bound themselves every day, the way she has for a decade, they probably wouldn’t be able to stand it.
 
    But Ying Mei is nothing like an ordinary cultivator or fighter.
 
    Even after so many years, except to Jun Shang whom she vowed her loyalty to, there’s almost no one in the Polar Domain who knows of her identity as a woman.
 
    However, along with her age-
 
    Ying Mei found that her cultivation has begun to stagnate.
 
    Especially in the past two years – every time she cultivates, and operates her spiritual power at her chest area, she would be in so much pain that she would want to die. Then she wouldn’t be able to continue practicing.
 
    Moreover, this kind of pain is only getting more and more severe as time goes on.
 
    The old servant who has been following her since she was a child is also a highly skilled physician. But for so many years, he wasn’t able to find any solution.
 
    Jun Muyan is just a mortal on Yanwu Continent. She doesn’t even understand anything about True Cultivation and Spiritual Power.
 
    Can she really solve Ying Mei’s problem?
 
    Ying Mei’s footsteps somewhat falter.
 
    She feels like she’s turning to just any doctor she can find due to her condition.
 
    But for so many years, Jun Muyan has been the first person to see through her disguise a man, as well as the illness of her body.
 
    Even that Leng Qingwang-fairy of Tian Yi Men has met with her quite a few times,
 
    But she has never discovered Ying Mei’s secret.
 
    ‘Creak–’
 
    In the darkness of the night, the sound of the door opening is particularly noticeable.
 
    Ying Mei jumps up in surprise, abruptly coming back to herself, only to discover that the candles inside the room have been lighted up without her noticing when.
 
    The distinct and sweet-sounding voice is especially clear within the silence.
 
    “According to the [Primal Chaos Internal Canon], the human body has three main points – the Yintang located between the brows, the Shanzong acupoint on the chest, and the Guanyuan point which is three inches below the navel.”
 
    “You’ve forcibly constricted and bound your chest for a very long time, causing the Shangzong to be smothered, and closing the middle acupoint – and thus, obstructing the top, middle and lower areas.”
 
    “Right now, you may still be able to endure it for a short period of time, but after a while, your middle acupuncture point would be thoroughly sealed. It would be easy to taken over by your demons*, and die if you don’t solve it.”

EMHS – ch318

Previous Chapter | EMHS | Next Chapter

Chapter 318: Might… not be able to keep it
    “Naturally.” Di Ming Jue ‘humphs’ disdainfully.
    Who else can make it, if not Ben Jun?
    Muyan is really shocked at this time, “You personally cooked for me?”
    “Naturally!” still the same answer.
    “But, why?”
    He’s clearly a monarch set up on high. Clearly, to him, the people in the entire Yanwu Continent are all just like insignificant insects.
    Clearly… he should be a man that is revered by all people, in all the lands under the heavens, making all the women rush like ducks and love him like crazy.
    Such a man, for what reason would he put on such a ridiculous apron and serve her some soup?
    Di Ming Jue comes a bit closer to her, drawling: “That’s because, Muyan, you’re food is too inedible, it’s not good for your health.”
    Blue veins suddenly pop up on Muyan’s temples.
    This scoundrel! What ‘touching’ – that’s all in the clouds now.
    She hooks her lips up revealing a smile that’s full of ridicule, as well as charm, “If it’s not good for the body, why did Jun Shang-daren eat so much that day? I thought Jun Shang-daren was very satisfied with my work!”
    “Mn, satisfied.” there’s no change on Di Ming Jue’s face, “As long as Muyan made it, I would be satisfied. I wouldn’t mind even if I have to eat it for a lifetime.”
    Muyan stares blankly all of a sudden.
    Only to listen to Di Ming Jue continue: “However, you and Xiao Bao may not. You are weak, and Xiao Bao is still a child, so both of you mustn’t eat those… later on, I would eat the things you make, but I would be responsible for your diets.”
    “I’ve told you, the cook who put out these dishes, you can have him stay with you as long as you like, even forever.”
    Muyan dazedly looks at him. There’s a roaring in her ears, and for a moment, it’s like she’s hearing the deafening sound of her heartbeat.
    Her heart is almost about to jump out of her chest.
     She thinks that there might not be another person in the world like the one before her eyes. For her, he can forget his status, and for her, he can do anything that’s beneath his position.
    Muyan has an ominous feeling in the pit of her stomach.
    If Di Ming Jue’s feelings would always burn so fiercely,
    If, she keeps on interacting with this man all the time, she soon… wouldn’t be able to keep her heart.
    “Why are you just foolishly watching me?” Di Ming Jue frowns, putting food in her plate again. His movements are gentle, but his tone of voice is somewhat not good, “Even if you want to cultivate the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, you also have to eat. Later, if I come to know that you haven’t eaten anything for eight hours, only playing the qin, then you won’t be able to see Xiao Bao again.”
    This time, Muyan doesn’t contradict him.
    Instead, she quietly puts the food that Di Ming Jue is giving her, all into her mouth.
    The dishes are spicy and tasty. In Muyan’s mouth, she could feel a touch of tartness and a hint of sweetness as she eats.
    She could see that Di Ming Jue is still persistently serving her food.
    Muyan suddenly picks up a piece of shrimp, and stuffs it into Di Ming Jue’s mouth, “Don’t you want to taste your own cooking?”
    Di Ming Jue is surprised, but he soon expressionlessly chews the shrimp and swallows it down.
    No one notices his ears quietly turning red.
    The corners of his mouth is also curved up into a gentle arc.
    Immediately after, he lets out a short cough and says: “Ben Jun is also hungry. Continue feeding Ben Jun.”
    He wouldn’t say that his current body simply doesn’t require any food.
    Even in the Yanwu Continent, he wouldn’t feel any hunger at all.
    Muyan blinks, “Aren’t there chopsticks here?”
    The man across her frowns, looking very unhappy, “Ben Jun is tired.”
    Too tired to even eat?
    But he has the strength to give her a huge pile of food?
    Muyan rolls her eyes, but she doesn’t expose the man’s lies.

Chapter 317: Stay Put
 
    Nevertheless, Muyan’s smile is even more splendid, “If you want to know how to solve it, remember to secretly come and find me tonight, zi-shi*”
 
  • zi-shi=11pm-1am.
 
    Ying Mei blushes even deeper. What’s once cold as ice and frost, is now tangled up in hesitation.
 
    From Han Ye’s perspective, he thinks that Ying Mei is blushing, it’s–
 
    Is he shy from passion and full of tender feelings?!
 
    No! This won’t do! It cannot continue like this.
 
    Otherwise, if Jun Shang sees this scene, he’s afraid that Miss Muyan and Ying Mei won’t have a way to live.
 
    Han Ye is just about to step forward and force the two apart.
 
    Meanwhile, Muyan doesn’t know when, but she only notices that the flower in front of her suddenly appears behind her.
 
    And when Muyan still wanted to reach out her hand and tease Ying Mei, someone grabs her collar, pulling her into a chest.
 
    Muyan only feels that her body has crashed into a rock-like embrace.
 
    Her shoulders are in pain from the bump.
 
    Looking up, she immediately comes into contact with Di Ming Jue’s pitch-black eyes.
 
    Her eyes go bright, “How come you’ve returned so early today? How is Xiao Bao? Is he eating well, is he sleeping well? How’s his progress in his cultivation? Does he miss me…”
 
    Di Ming Jue’s face is as black as a pot!
 
    He doesn’t say a word in answer, but lifts up Muyan by the collar and pulls her straight into the house.
 
    “Hey, Di Ming Jue, don’t you know what it means to be gentle! I’m not resisting but you’re still dragging, you think your hauling a sack!”
 
    ……
 
    What piques Muyan’s curiosity is how Di Ming Jue doesn’t bring her back to the bedroom this time, but he takes her into a peculiar room instead.
 
    The kitchen!
 
    Why would Di Ming Jue bring her to the kitchen?
 
    Big hands direct her to sit at a chair by the table.
 
    Muyan is just about to stand up, but Di Ming Jue coldly sends her a glare, “Stay put.”
 
    Muyan blinks. This man’s anger isn’t small – just how did she provoke him this time?
 
    In the end, she still sits down and stays put anyways.
 
    Soon after, the scene that she sees… renders her dumbstruck.
 
    She watches as Di Ming Jue takes out a blue apron from who-knows-where, and throws it in front of Muyan.
 
    Slightly raising his chin, he has a proud face as he says: “Put it on Ben Jun!”
 
    His speaking voice is awfully cold, the grandeur of his entire body is very imperious, very dashing.
 
    But wait a minute!
 
    What ghost is making her put the apron on him?
 
    Apron, Di Ming Jue… this… is this combination also supposed to go side by side and fly under the sun?
 
    Muyan is dazed and perplexed as she stands up, and ties the apron on Di Ming Jue.
 
    Afterwards, the golden noble, Jun Shang-daren stands in front of the stove, and begins to skillfully cook.
 
    Muyan, “…”
 
    Wait a minute! Is she really not hallucinating?
 
    Di Ming Jue actually, personally goes to the kitchen to cook?
 
    Muyan rubs her eyes, and rubs them again.
 
    And yet the scene before her eyes doesn’t change at all.
 
    Oh God!!
 
    Di Ming Jue is actually cooking, even wearing an apron as he does!
 
    The most remarkable point is how this man is doing something so incompatible, and wearing such a feminine apron – but for some reason, he still seems so handsome and incomparable; the temperament is so aloof and proper, like he’s simply sitting on his throne, overlooking his territory.
 
    Muyan goes sluggish for a while.
 
    Then the delicious food is already coming over.
 
    Di Ming Jue looks cold and detached, even having a faint wrinkle on his brows. He has personally scooped out a bowl of soup, setting it in front of Muyan: “Not eating?”
 
    “Eat! I’ll eat!”
 
    Muyan abruptly comes back to her senses, and tastes a mouthful of soup.
 
    The delicious and savory flavors flood her whole mouth.
 
    She snaps her eyes wide open and incredulously looks at Di Ming Jue, “The meals during the first few days, did you cook them yourself?”

EMHS – ch316

Chapter 316: Bound for such a long time, not good… for your body
    She pats the dust on her body as she gets up.
    Turning her head, she spots Ying Mei looking at her unblinkingly.
    The corners of Muyan’s mouth immediately curl up, her eyelashes are dense and long like fluttering crow feathers, overflowing with a mischievous and lovely radiance.
    “Ying Mei, if you stare at me so much, I would really misunderstand, and think that you’re already enchanted by me!”
    As she’s saying that, she’s already taking advantage of the other.
    That drop-dead gorgeous features, along with the pair of eyes that ripples with a smile, suddenly appear right in front of Ying Mei.
    A sudden change comes on Ying Mei’s perennial iceberg of a face.
    He hurriedly tries to retreat, but his footing is unstable, so he tumbles backwards.
    Muyan reaches out and seizes.
    She takes the other’s slender waist, dragging him back into her arms. She chuckles: “Be careful, I will feel distressed if you injure yourself in a fall.”
    “You… you…” Ying Mei’s complexion changes again and again, but he stammers and can’t say a word.
    At the side, Han Ye and the black-clothed guards, they seem like they’re looking at a ghost.
    Han Ye only feels like there’s tens of thousands of fierce beasts stampeding in his skull.
    Heavens! Why don’t you just kill him with a thunder-strike!
    Why make him see this scene?!
    Jun Shang has feelings for Miss Muyan, but she’s so close and intimate with Ying Mei, so physical. If Jun Shang were to know…
    Han Ye shudders, and he really doesn’t dare to think about it anymore.
    “Miss… Miss Jun, you… please conduct yourself with dignity, you… you are Jun Shang’s woman… even… also… you also mustn’t cause trouble to Ying Mei!”
    He has a scared face, his words are all stammered out.
    Muyan smiles even more cheerfully, her eyes brimming with an impish light.
    Suddenly, she grabs Ying Mei’s collar and she lands a kiss on his fair and tender cheeks.
    The whole audience goes into a deathly stillness.
    Han Ye’s vision goes black, and there’s only one phrase flapping around in his brain — “It’s over!”
    The black-clothed guards are striving to outdo one another in their retreat, wishing that they’ve never witnessed this scene.
    On the contrary, the one who got kissed, Ying Mei-
    After the initial shock and astonishment,
    He looks at Muyan who’s very close.
    He could see a playful and mischievous twinkling in those pair of peach blossom eyes.
    A single thought suddenly rises in his mind.
    “You… you know…”
    Muyan chuckles: “Know what?”
    Ying Mei bites his lips and doesn’t say anything, holding his own wrist instead.
    Muyan’s brows quirk up, admiring how sharp this “young man” is.
    That’s right, she really knows about Ying Mei’s secret.
    It’s when she dealt with Ying Mei that day.
    Her fingers inadvertently touched this “guy’s” pulse.
    In a flash, everything is no longer hidden.
    A man’s pulse is entirely different from that of a woman’s.
    Outwardly, even if Ying Mei dresses up like man, like a beautiful youth-
    But her pulse cannot lie.
    That’s right!
    Ying Mei isn’t a man, but an authentic and genuine beautiful woman.
    That’s the reason why Muyan teases her again and again.
    Muyan has never come across it before – a woman dressed as a man, and can disguise herself so successfully.
    Completely devoid of any traces of femininity.
    Even that temperament that is as cold as ice and frost, and the harsh chill from her whole body – she’s more daunting and affecting than Han Ye.
    “Don’t you want to know why your chest is always so painful? How it’s influencing your cultivation’s progress?” Muyan leans closer to Ying Mei’s side, lowering her voice.
    Ying Mei jolts, subconsciously asking: “Why?”
    Muyan’s lips quirk up, her smirk is exceptionally evil, “Because, binding them for such a long time, it’s not good… for you body!”
    Ying Mei stares at her dumbstruck, then at a speed that’s visible to the naked eye, her face bursts into red.

EMHS – ch315

Chapter 315: Too great
    Standing at the side, Han Ye and the black-clothed guards don’t feel anything.
    But the flowers, plants, and trees in the whole courtyard look like they’re madly doing their best to grow, swaying in excitement.
    Then, everyone in the courtyard witnesses a magical scene.
    In the short span of eight hours, they actually watch spring, summer, autumn and winter pass in this courtyard – the grand view of the four season.
    Even Ying Mei, who was originally bitterly cultivating in his room, is also drawn out.
    That’s because the green plant that should’ve simply have withered in his room unexpectedly shines with vitality once more, it even blooms.
    Around the courtyard, everyone is holding their breaths.
    Even Ying Mei and Han Ye, this pair who came from the Xiuxian Continent, people who are used seeing the world – they are also stunned and rendered speechless by this scene.
    That’s to say nothing for those black-clothed guards who are “indigenous” to the Yanwu Continent.
    The gaze of every individual as they look at Muyan is filled with awe and reverence.
    Over time, three blue saplings slowly sprout on the only calm piece of land again.
    And on that plant that was originally being eroded by those black spots,
    Those spots quietly retreat from the stem and leaves.
    It’s pale blue color slowly turns into a clear blue like the sky.
    Under the light of the sun, the very small plants produce a radiant luster, simply nothing more beautiful can be imagined.
    Ting dong–! Ding–!
    The sound of the qin slowly ebbs away, until it finally seems to fade into the distant horizon.
    Muyan’s forehead is already covered with fine beads of sweat, her complexion is visibly off and pale.
    That pair of languid and indifferent peach blossom eyes of hers however, are casting an excited bright light.
    That’s because she is already convinced. The Shen Musician’s “Luxuriant Growth” skill can not only encourage plant growth, it can even make even the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower grow, when it cannot for thousands of years.
     Based on the look of things today, as long as she plays this song to these four sprouts for eight hours every day,
    She could very possibly be able to witness a miraculous moment.
    Of course, the most important this is that she would be able to see her baby once the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower blossoms.
    Muyan slowly exhales, but she still feels that her body is on the verge of collapse due to the exhaustion.
    She unhurriedly gathers herself, and once again arranges her fingers over the zither strings.
    The tune is mellow and gentle, like a musical piece that sounds bright and comforting.
    The “Echo Recovery” skill is activated.
    In a split second, Muyan could feel abundant, mellow and rich Internal Force endlessly rushing out from her Qi Sea.
    Besides Han Ye and Ying Mei-
    The other black-clothed guards, each and every one of them show bewitched expressions.
    It’s as if there’s a power that stimulating their Internal Force, permeating their bodies, washing their flesh and meridians over and over again.
    This kind of feeling is really too profound, and too intoxicating.
    At the end of the song, all of the guards still want to continue.
    The way they’re looking at Muyan is filled with intensity and eagerness.
    This girl before their eyes is the Enchantress of Medicine, famous within Tianyuan City.
    From their perspective, they originally thought that the so-called Enchantress is also someone with an undeserved reputation.
    Just like that Godly-something Qian Qing. These people simply won’t put it in their eyes.
    But to truly experience Muyan’s means today, and personally feel the benefits brought about by the sound of the zither-
    They only come to realize how very wrong they were.
    The Enchantress Jun Muyan is really worthy of being the woman that their Master fancies.
    Really too great! Too extraordinary!
    ……
    Muyan stretches her body and stands up, the Tian Mo Qin disappears from between her fingers.
    Under the effects of Echo Recovery, the Internal Force that she has consumed has been replenished by 70-80 percent.
    Her pale complexion has also regained it’s red flush.

EMHS – ch314

Chapter 314: Sprout
    However, the Dark Clouds Spirit flower isn’t showing any signs of germination.
    Yesterday, she has practically exhausted all her means, but she’s still unable to find a solution.
    Today, what else can she do?
    If she can’t grow this Spirit Flower from its seeds, will she never see her baby?
    As she’s hanging her head dispiritedly, someone suddenly pushes the door open.
    Han Ye scrambles in, his mouth shouting, “Miss Jun, Miss Jun, you… quickly come outside and take a look!”
    “Take a look at what?” Muyan disinterestedly lifts her eyes and sends him a glance.
    What’s there to see and go out for – even if Di Ming Jue is currently outside, stripped naked and jumping around on sexy dance, she would still…
    Oh, if that’s the case, she’ll go out and take a look!
    “It’s the Spirit Flower! The Dark Clouds Spirit Flower!” Han Ye gasps from being overly excited, he couldn’t keep his speech coherent, “Miss Jun, the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower, it… it sprouted!”
    “What?!!” Muyan jumps up from her seat.
    She stares listlessly for a good while, before she abruptly comes back to her wits. What did Han Ye just say?
    The Dark Clouds Spirit Flower sprouted?! It that true?
    When there clearly wasn’t even a little bit of reaction yesterday?
    ……
    On the green medicine field, that light blue bud is so eye-catching, so beautiful.
    Even in this blistering hot weather of the early summer,
    That blue stem and its leaves, they seem to form an ice sculpture.
    Under the sunlight, you can even see the the vines inside, like twisted roots and intertwined joints.
   “So beautiful!” Han Ye comes over from behind Muyan, he can’t help but sigh in admiration, “The Dark Clouds Spirit Flower is actually like this.”
    It must be known that within the Three Realms, no one has been able to cultivate the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower for millennia.
    Even though there are many treasures in the Xiuxian World, Han Ye has never seen this Spirit Flower before.
    No one can cultivate it for thousands of years!
    And yet Miss Jun could actually make its seed germinate!
    Han Ye looks at Muyan, his gaze can only be full of worship.
    But Muyan is faintly knitting her brows.
    That’s because, even though the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower has sprouted, she discovers that small – almost imperceptible – black spots have appeared on the shoot.
    Probing and inspecting it with her Mysterious Energy, she could feel that those little black spots are consuming the life force of the Spirit Flower’s sapling.
    And she doesn’t know if it’s just her illusion-
    since Muyan thinks that those black spots seem to be growing bigger and bigger.
    Waiting for a quarter of an hour, she’s finally sure of it.
    It’s not just her illusion, the black spots really are eating the young sprout’s vitality.
    If she ignores this, it will only take about half a day and this little sapling will wither and die.
    According to what’s written in that ancient record in her space, over the last thousands of years, it’s not that there really hasn’t been anyone who was able to germinate the Dark Clouds Spirit Flower.
    Indeed, even though the Spirit Flower could germinate, it would also very quickly wither.
    It simply can’t maintain its growth, not enough to bloom.
    If Muyan doesn’t do anything, her footsteps can only follow these people’s trailing dust.
    After pondering it for a moment, she once again takes out three of the seeds and buries them under the soil.
    The Tian Mo Qin appears out of thin air. Muyan’s figure turns, her white clothes fluttering, and she sits down cross-legged beside the medicine field.
    Han Ye wants to say: the ground is cold and dirty, how can Miss Jun sit here.
    However, the melodious sound of the zither is already playing.
    Under the light of the sun, the girl’s features seem so focused, it dazzles the eyes, making Han Ye swallow down all the words back into his stomach.
    He feels that at this very moment, Muyan is awe-inspiring and ethereal, noble and graceful – people simply wouldn’t dare to disturb, wouldn’t dare to profane.
    Han Ye quietly swallows the words he wanted to say, and he retreats to the side.
    The sound of the zither rises in spirals as it spreads out.

EMHS – ch313

Chapter 313: Want Xiao Bao~
    She still hasn’t finished her words, when her dry lips have been suddenly blocked up.
    The man uses his scorching breath and his unique flavor, to plunder her breathing and infiltrate her lips.
    They’re sharing meager resources, but he’s unable to pull away for his life!
    Jun Muyan, you are destined to be mine!
    At the end of the kiss, Muyan’s breathing has become so ragged, and she’s somewhat unsteady on her feet.
    Through gritted teeth, “What are you doing?”
    Di Ming Jue’s voice is hoarse, “Payment for the painting.”
    Muyan: “…” who told you that the painting should be paid this way?
    She struggles, only to find that the man holding her won’t relinquish his grip.
    Muyan can’t help but frown. Her hand pushes the man’s chest to struggle free.
    “Stop flailing about!” Di Ming Jue’s voice is husky and indecent.
    He grabs Muyan’s slender wrist and slowly directs it downwards, and presses it somewhere hard and hot.
    At first, Muyan is stunned and she couldn’t react.
    Then in a flash, her face gets red like it’s burning.
    Even if she acts calm, in essence, she practically doesn’t understand a word in the affairs between a man and a woman.
    Her only past experience is a kind of painful, agonizing, drawn-out ordeal that was like torture.
    It makes her simply not want to remember it.
    On normal days, she can still be bold, and her mouth could say some words to flirt with Di Ming Jue.
    But when it’s really coming to a head, there’s only panic and helplessness.
    So much so, that the painful and unbearable memory rushes up in her mind, making her complexion go white.
    Di Ming Jue sighs softly.
    He releases her hand and presses her into his arms.
    His deep and low voice carries a little bit of an indulging tone, and some helplessness, as it softly says, “Muyan, what am I going to do with you?”
    In the end, what should I do so you’d be willing to forget that already-dead man and accept my feelings?
    Releasing the person in his arms, Di Ming Jue doesn’t stay and linger, as he turns around and leaves quickly.
    He can’t stay in this room for another moment!
    If he waits any longer, he’s afraid that he’ll directly have his way with this little woman that’s gripping his heart.
    Only, he wants Muyan.
    Muyan as she is, whole and complete.
    Be it her body, heart, or name – they should all belong to Di Ming Jue.
    In order for this day to come faster, he can endure it! He can wait!
    Of course, the price of enduring it is rushing himself straight into cold water for some time.
    He then leaves the courtyard to go to the Junji Drugstore.
    ……
    Inside the room, Muyan picks the man’s finished portrait up from the table, her expression is a bit absent-minded.
    Eventually, she collects the painting and enters the space.
    Wandering around in the space for a long time, Muyan still doesn’t know where she should hide this painting.
    In the end, she takes out a random book, and places the painting in its pages.
    She slams the book close!
    What remains unseen is deemed to be clean.
    When she lies down on the bed and closes her eyes, Muyan seems to still hear a man murmuring in her ears.
    –Muyan, what am I going to do with you?
    The night gradually sinks deeper.
    At the yard outside the room, on the quiet medicine field, a breeze blows softly.
    Suddenly, the soil on a certain spot on the field shakes a bit.
    Immediately after, a light blue sprout slowly comes out at a speed visible to the naked eye.
    ===
    Not seeing Xiao Bao on the first day, she misses him.
