Chapter 64: Stubborn Xiao Bao
“Future husband?” Muyan raises her brows, “Then you have come today to…”
“Propose marriage!” The cold, thin lips resolutely proclaims, and then he lowers his voice and softly says, “I want you to become my, Di Ming Jue’s, wife!”
The light in Muyan’s eyes grows darker, she gently says: “Since it’s a marriage proposal, could you let me go first? My hand is sore from your grip.”
Di Ming Jue is stumped from that, quickly loosening his grip. His concerned gaze falls on her slender wrist.
And indeed, there’s a red imprint marring her slender jade wrists.
However, the red mark doesn’t look like a flaw; on the contrary, it adds a certain kind bloody aesthetic.
Just like the girl’s slightly swollen lips, so luxurious and so tempting that he couldn’t help but want to take another taste.
Di Ming Jue’s pupils gradually seeps into darkness. He steps closer to Muyan, the flame of desire burning in his eyes.
The girl in front of him has a shallow smile. Her eyes are soft and tender, as if filled with wholehearted intimacy, waiting for him to take her into his arms.
Twang-! A zither note echoes out.
Di Ming Jue’s pupils shrink, and his figure is suddenly blown away.
In the end, the qin’s wind blade cuts a hole through his clothes.
The young woman in front of him no longer has any trace of tenderness or intimacy on her face, leaving only a ghastly and beguiling smile, “You want to propose marriage to me?”
“I’m really sorry, even if all the men in the world drops dead, it won’t be your turn to take the position of this girl’s husband!”
Di Ming Jue’s face turns extremely dark, immediately taking a stride towards her. He wants to recapture the girl back into his arms, and he would not allow her to escape again.
All of a sudden, a flash of white light flashes between the two.
It’s immediately followed by a small white hand, pushing towards Di Ming Jue, “You mustn’t bully niangqin!”
Internal Force surging, flooding it’s might.
It should be impossible for this Internal Force to pose any threat to Di Ming Jue.
But at the instant that the small, white tender hands make contact with the hems of his clothes, Di Ming Jue’s body suddenly turns transparent like a mirage, and eventually disappears.
Muyan looks at the empty space in front of her, unable to return to her senses for a long time.
So same as the last time, this scoundrel suddenly appeared again, and suddenly disappeared again.
“Niangqin…” Xiao Bao’s aggrieved call reaches her ears.
Muyan snaps back to herself and quickly bends down to carry Xiao Bao up. Tensed, she says, “Xiao Bao, didn’t you promise niangqin that you’ll obediently stay inside the space, and you won’t go out?”
Xiao Bao’s cold little face tightens as he says: “Someone bullied niangqin!”
“Even if someone bullies me, you can’t just risk going out as you please.” Muyan says with a grave expression, “Otherwise, if something bad happens to you, do you know how scared and broken-hearted I would be? Promise niangqin, that you’ll behave afterwards.”
Xiao Bao’s delicate little face is still as taut as before, his lips are tightly pressed together, and he doesn’t say anything.
Muyan has a sinking expression. She crouches down and removes Xiao Bao out of her embrace, “Jun Mochen, if you’re not obedient, niangqin will get angry!”
Hearing those words, Xiao Bao’s taut face and pursed lips slowly changes, at last.
Sparkling and translucent tears accumulate on his huge blue eyes.
The little boy’s face is filled with unease and grievance but he stubbornly bites his teeth, refusing to let his tears fall down.
“Xiao Bao doesn’t want people to bully niangqin, don’t wanna!”
His voice breaks into a sob, finally unable to stop the tears from rolling down.
Seeing her son’s tears, for a moment, Muyan regrets so dearly that she feels like she might as well bleed.
s h a d y t r a n s l a t i o n s . c o m
T/N: We’ll be picking up the pace next week, cause I took some meds and it made me so sleepy. It’s still making me so sleepy.
I’ve been sick all week (feeling much better now) so I still owe you guys some chapters…
(hence the randomly-timed updates, I sometimes give up midway and just post the finished chapters so I can sleep earlier)
It was just a common cold, hahaha
Chapter 63: Your Future Husband
The person before her turns out to be that philandering scoundrel from the Fog Forest.
A sliver of astonishment flashes through the man’s eyes, but it’s only for a fleeting moment.
He says with a cold face, “He wanted to harm you!”
And he will not allow anyone to harm his woman!
Muyan practically laughs derisively, “You thought he could harm me? Rather, even if he was going to hurt me, what does it have to do with you? What do you have to do with me, that you’ve meddled in other people’s business?”
Having said that, Muyan once again feels frustrated.
She makes the decision to stay away from this mental case so she turns around to leave.
But before she could take two steps, the man catches her wrist and pulls her back.
Her whole body is embraced by wide, firm and scorching arms .
Muyan furrows her brows and suddenly twists to free herself.
But this time, not only is she unable to extricate herself like earlier, but the man holds her by her waist and brings her deeper in his embrace.
Immediately afterwards, the man lowers his head and, without the slightest hesitation, captures her soft pink lips.
Muyan snaps her eyes wide open, simply unable to believe what’s happening to her at this moment.
She was actually disrespected by this scoundrel, twice now!
Muyan raises up the hand that wasn’t seized, and flings it towards the man’s face.
The man immediately catches the slender lily-white hands in the air, capturing both of her hands and placing them behind her. He presses her body against his a little more.
Muyan wants to struggle but, be it the use of her Internal Force or even summoning Tian Mo Qin, there’s completely no response from them while in the presence of this man.
It’s almost like the whole field is kept under the control of his dreadful power, firmly suppressing them.
The man seems to have become intoxicated from the sweet taste of her lips.
The kiss is obviously very clumsy, not even knowing how the lips and tongues intertwine. Just greedily breathing in the fragrance of those lips. However, the dominance percolating throughout his body is incomparably despotic, as if Muyan is his possession.
Cannot resist, cannot escape.
The kiss lasted for a long time before the man reluctantly releases Muyan. His eyes still hungrily gobbling up the sight of her exquisite brows and eyes, sweeping over the fine upturned nose, the limpid pearl-like earlobes, and eventually falling on the slightly swollen lips.
Soon after, he slightly knits his brows, apparently quite displeased.
At this time, Muyan is quickly bursting into a rage, wishing she could shred this guy that had molested her twice.
But unfortunately, she doesn’t know where this man came from or why he’s too powerful.
Even a Precelestial practitioner like her is completely unable to fight back.
But who would have thought that this man’s ice-cold voice would sound somewhat discontented as he tells her: “Why are you so weak? This way, how can you follow Ben Jun to the Xiuxian Continent, and be qualified stand beside me? Ben Jun will allow you ten years, as soon as possible, pass the tribulations and ascend…”
Listening to the man’s insufferable prattling, Muyan takes a deep breath. The corners of her mouth lift up into a soft and bashful smile: “I’m sorry but may I ask, who are you?”
If Xiao Bao, who is as familiar with Muyan, could see this smile, he would know right away that his mother is angry!
Really, very angry!
The one who provoked her is totally out of luck.
Unfortunately, the man in front of her doesn’t know that.
So seeing the girl’s bright and beautiful smile, his eyes flicker and a sliver of gentleness thaws through his ice-cold expression.
His wide palm slowly strokes her fine porcelain cheeks, “Muyan, remember my name… Di Ming Jue, this shall be the name of your future husband.
Chapter 62: It’s you
Muyan expresses ‘such a pity’ on her face, she shakes her head: “Too bad, master Ge guessed wrong again!”
With the third slash of her sword, Ge Changming’s hand that was initially reaching for a knife from his lower back pocket, suddenly sprays blood. His palm is sliced in half.
“Aaaaah–!!!” a blood-curdling scream pierces through the sky.
“Master Ge’s screams are really miserable!” Muyan says slowly, “Maybe I should give you a hint! Four years ago, Chi Yan Country, nameless valley!”
Ge Changming clamps down on the wrist that only has half a palm. His whole body trembling into a spasm. The sharp pain is making it hard for him to concentrate.
But hearing Muyan’s words, he suddenly snaps his head up to look at her face.
The pupils in those bloodshot eyes suddenly contract, and Ge Changming opens his mouth wide and issues a shrill scream: “Jun… Jun Muyan, you are Jun Muyan, the pregnant woman four years ago…”
Immediately however, he frantically shakes his head, yelling hysterically, “Impossible! How could it be you?! Jun Muyan, shouldn’t you have died already?!”
Muyan stalks forward on the bloodied ground. Her shallow smile is pure and tender, “If I don’t live, how can I repay the ‘grace’ that you gave me… hm?”
Ge Changming stares at the young woman’s flowery smiling expression, then he looks at her pitch-black eyes that seem like a bottomless abyss. His body shakes like a sieve.
This time, genuine dread rises in his heart.
He kneels on the floor, his knees continuously drawing back. There’s a frightened whisper in his mouth, “Don’t kill me, the matter from back then, it was Gong Qianxue who instructed me. It’s none of my concern… I didn’t… I didn’t want to dig your child out!”
As he retreats, Ge Changming’s hand pries around his lower back.
He has hidden his last weapon there, Jin Hong Men’s unique poison “Tian Du Vagary Powder”.
It was refined by the alchemy and medicine master, Jian Feng of the Heavenly Road Sect. It was a special gift for Gong Qianxue.
Even a Precelestial practitioner would not be spared from the might of the Tian Du Vagary Powder.
Muyan listens to Ge Changming begging for mercy, and watches his hand reaching behind him. She narrows her eyes and her smile deepens.
Looking on as Ge Changming is about to take out the Tian Du Vagary Powder, a dark shadow suddenly appears between them.
With the loud sound, Ge Changming’s form swells violently and directly explodes, flesh and viscera strewing all over the place.
Muyan is momentarily unable to have a reaction, just about bracing herself to get splattered by bits of flesh.
But in a flash, she is enveloped by a looming figure, totally blocking the blood splash.
It comes with a strong and cold masculine atmosphere, completely assaulting her senses.
Muyan is stunned and still doesn’t react. A deep, magnetic voice of a man probes into her ears: “Jun Muyan…”
Just a low whisper of her name, but it seems to contain endless longing and countless emotions.
The warm breath puffing on her ears brings a tickling feeling.
Muyan abruptly recovers her senses, her figure flashes away to break free from the man’s embrace.
Then she turns to look at the spot that Ge Changming occupied just moments ago.
Seeing that not even bones were spared, what remains of the corpse is just crushed bones and internal organs.
Muyan’s face turns green, “Who told you to kill him?”
Her prey, waiting for four years and with great difficulty, finally catching her first prey.
She had intended to properly torment and exact vengeance, but he was instantly destroyed this way.
As Muyan raises her head to take a clear look at the man’s appearance, her little face that have always appeared laid-back reveals a sick blue color, “It’s you!”
Chapter 61: Irreconcilable Hatred
He has full confidence regarding his own abilities and strength, and even Gong Qianxue never entered his eyes.
Yanwu Continent’s first genius, Gong Qianxue is only at the early Heaven stage.
How can this young woman be his opponent when she looks younger than Gong Qianxue?
Seeing the momentous palm rumbling towards her, Muyan still maintains her calm and unperturbed expression.
A small jade-like hand raises slightly, internal force operating within her body, she launches her own attack against Ge Changming.
With a resounding noise, their palms collide against each other.
Ge Changming reveals a conceited smirk; this woman is stupid, isn’t she? Daring to compete against him using internal force…
But as quickly as the smile bloomed in his face, it freezes before reaching completion.
Ge Changming suddenly draws back for several yards. He grabs his chest with one hand, and coughs out a mouthful of blood.
His eyes focus in on the girl before him. His hoarse voice is filled with shock and incredulity, “You’re actually a Precelestial? How is this possible?!”
That’s right! How is it possible for a teenage girl to be a Precelestial master?!
Muyan chuckles and drawls: “You’re not bad yourself! In the few years I haven’t seen you, you’ve not only become the master of Jin Hong Men, even your strength has reached the peak of the Heaven stage.”
Listening to how she talks like they’re acquainted, the bewildered expression on Ge Changming’s face deepens, “Who the hell are you?!”
“Why don’t you take a guess?” Muyan carefreely laughs, “Oh right, by the way, I should tell the master. I have cleanly disposed of all the small-fries outside. Now you’re the only one left! Master Ge, we have plenty of time time to slowly chat.”
The girl’s words are like soft clouds and gentle winds, but in Ge Changming’s ears, they are like a sudden clap of thunder.
“You, what did you say?!” he bellows, the tone of his voice turning sharp due to extreme panic.
Quickly, his figure bolts out of the room, rushing towards the public square.
Muyan looks aloof, completely not bothering to stop him. Instead, she leisurely and unhurriedly follows behind him.
A body… two bodies… ten bodies…
As more and more mangled corpses turn up along the way, Ge Changming’s expression becomes even more aghast and frightened.
His Jin Hong Men that he trained for seven or eight years, until it finally became the primary killer organization in Chi Yan Country.
In the end… this woman has completely exterminated it overnight.
“You poisonous woman! What kind emnity do you have against my Jin Hong Men? You’re so vicious and merciless!!”
Ge Changming abruptly turns around, his fierce eyes glaring at the girl in white who’s slowly following behind him. He issues a scream similar to that of a wild beast.
Muyan’s mouth is slightly curved up, a charming smile on her dainty face. But there’s a chill within those eyes that could condense frost, “Between Jin Hong Men and I, there’s an enmity that wouldn’t allow us to live under the same sky…”
A luminous white wrist turns over, and a longsword appears on her hands. Muyan gently infuses it with mysterious energy.
A gash suddenly splits open on Ge Changming’s body, blood spraying everywhere.
“Ah – !! Who are you?” Ge Changming moves to the side, going away from the attack while screaming loudly, shouting himself hoarse.
Muyan sneers, “Master Ge’s memory is really bad! Have you forgotten me so quickly?”
As soon as her voice falls, the swords strikes for a second time. Ge Changming gets a bloody hole on his shoulder.
He makes a plaintive whine, a pair of embittered and frightened eyes stare at Muyan.
“I absolutely don’t remember Jin Hong Men having an enemy like you…”
Chapter 60: Extinguishing the Entire Jin Hong Men
“Hehe, won’t be angry?” Ge Changming reveals a sardonic smile. “That’s of course, you haven’t seen her fly into rage four years ago. Back then, she killed quite a few of my trusted subordinates, and even I was myself sustained serious injuries…”
Speaking halfway, Ge Changming becomes wary once again, swallowing down the rest of his words from fear.
He has a distant stare, as if reliving what happened four years ago.
Gong Qianxue suddenly gave them an order. She asked them to take a pregnant woman’s unborn child and deliver it to her.
At that time, Ge Changming was yet to be the nominal master of Jin Hong Men, but he was the main person in charge of that task.
He thought everything should be foolproof.
After all, the pregnant girl was so weak, she completely lacked the ability to resist.
In spite of everything, the final result…
That young girl must have died already. In the end, she’s a pregnant woman without the strength to truss a chicken. She wasn’t caught in their encirclement, so she must have escaped into the mountains. And when she entered deep into the mountains, she could only meet her end.
As Ge Changming is lost in his thoughts, he didn’t react even when Hall Owner bid goodbye as the other takes his leave.
Out of nowhere, he hears Hall Owner Ren exclaim, “Who are you?!”
Just as the voice falls, there’s a loud thud and a dark shadow rushes towards him.
Gushing blood spatters around his feet.
Hall Owner Ren has widened eyes, his mouth opens as if to say something but he only gurgled thin blood. The second he stumbles down, he completely stops breathing.
Ge Changming is alarmed and furious. He snaps his head up to see a young girl in snow white clothing, her long hair trailing over her shoulders as she unhurriedly enters the room.
The soles of feet are dripping with the Hall Owner’s blood. But walking on this bloody ground, her entire body is surrounded by an inviolably sacred atmosphere.
“You, who are you? Why did you enter the restricted area of my “Kuai Hou Grove” without permission?”
Before Ge Changming’s yelling, across from him, the young woman slowly hooks up her lips.
That pure and holy temperament instantly morphed, from the snow lotus of the Tianshan Mountains, to the fiery and flirtatious lycoris of a distant shore, enticing and dangerous.
“I took the liberty to visit at such a late hour. I hope Jin Hong Men’s sect master won’t take offense.” the girl’s voice is like the clinking of jade on ice, sophisticated and euphonious.
Ge Changming snaps his eyes wide, saying with disbelief: “You, how do you know that I’m Jin Hong Men’s…”
“How do I know that you are the master of Jin Hong Men?” Muyan chuckles as she glances up to him, “Not only do I know that you are the master of Jin Hong Men, but I also know that Jin Hong Men is about to disappear from the world! ”
Like snow, a clear and cold gaze stare at Ge Changming, making him inexplicably tremble.
After some effort to calm his mind, he asks: “Girl, what do you mean by this?”
“It means that today, I will extinguish the entire Jin Hong Men.”
Ge Changming stares blankly at first, then bursts into laughter soon after. Hot anger rises in his eyes, “The girl really likes to talk big! There are a lot of people who wants to extinguish my Jin Hong Men from this world, but none have ever succeeded. ”
“So young yet so daring to talk nonsense. I would actually like to see if you really have the ability!”
Before finishing his words, Ge Changming has already sent an attack towards Muyan, producing a loud, thunder-like rumble.
A powerful and oppressive Internal Force radiates from him. Ordinary people would shiver under the might of this tremendous force, even if they stand ten meters away.
Ge Changming’s eyes are filled with murderous intent and arrogance.
Although he submits to Gong Qianxue’s money and drugs, he is still an expert at the peak of Heaven Stage.
Chapter 59: Single-minded Desire
Muyan looks towards their frenetic and fearful appearance, her eyes sweeping through the young women crying and moaning on the ground. The corners of her mouth curve up into a chilling smirk.
Be it the past or the present life, the behavior of these animals truly hasn’t changed one bit!
Don’t they enjoy abusing others and letting them experience the loss of all hope, until they are tormented to death?
She will certainly accomplish their intent today.
The slender, crystalline fingers languidly move along the strings, accompanied by the terrified howling of grief. Tian Mo Qin’s honeyed zither melody is a sound that could move one’s heart. Just like its master, it doesn’t care for anything else but to enjoy this feast of massacre.
Muyan is so immersed in killing at that moment – she didn’t notice that from the void, there’s a pair of red-hot eyes fixating on her. There’s an unprecedented, single-minded desire manifesting within those eyes.
Throughout his life, he had always been disgusted with women and rebuffed them.
But at the first sight of this woman, his heart throbbed uncontrollably, his blood turned scalding hot.
As if this woman was born for him.
His originally hollow and desolate life suddenly became full because of the appearance of this woman.
Jun Muyan –
It could be said that at first sight, he merely felt his heart move, yearning to obtain.
Now, looking at the rain of pink petals, the enchanting smile of the young woman who slaughters by playing the zither… his heart is baptized by the fire of desire, essentially igniting uncontrollably and irrepressibly.
Even the indifferent and unresponsive body has a certain part that is rampaging. He wants to possess this woman, wants to firmly hold her in his arms and impulsively plunder.
“Jun Muyan, you are destined to be mine!” a dark and husky voice streams out of thin lips, those pair of dark eyes sink deeper into the abyss.
Within the most luxurious residence in the inner parts of Jin Hong Men.
Ge Changming leans back on the office chair. He’s holding the information that he just received, frowning slightly.
“Is something the matter, Deputy Master?” waiting at the side, Hall Owner Ren couldn’t help but ask after seeing the change in Ge Changming’s expression.
With slightly knitted brows, Ge Changming says: “We’ve lost contact with all the units that were sent to look for that Heaven Stage kid.”
“How could that be?” the Hall Owner exclaims, “Even if he’s Heaven stage, he’s nothing but a four or five year old child. There is a peak Heaven stage expert among the people we’ve sent, not to mention the several peak Earth stage practitioners!”
Ge Changming irritably rumples the information and asks in a low voice: “How is the master’s injury?”
Ge Changmin is the master of Jin Hong Men only in name. The real master is in fact Gong Qianxue.
Gong Qianxue controls everyone in Jin Hong Men, including Ge Changmin, by the use of mysterious drugs.
Therefore, Ge Changming and the others are afraid of Gong Qianxue’s severe punishments if they handle their work incompetently.
Hall Owner Ren shakes his head, a glimmer of fear flashing through his eyes. “Because the Master has already signed a contract with the sacred beast, she will suffer a backlash once the vitality of the sacred beast egg disappears. This is also the reason why the Master urgently searched for the little rabbit… however, just as the orders were sent, the backlash had already begun. The injuries that the Master sustained were not light. She is currently in the Heavenly Road Sect to recuperate.”
They think of the anger and punishment that they will be suffer if Gong Qianxue returns and they still haven’t found the child.
The faces of Ge Changming and Hall Owner Ren become unsightly.
The Hall Owner optimistically says, “Perhaps the Master won’t be too angry? After all, we tried our best!”
“Hehe, won’t be angry?” Ge Changming reveals a sardonic smile.
Chapter 58: An Immortal from the Ninth Heaven
“Hahaha… Liu brother, you wouldn’t know! There are a several girls here that came from well-off families! They were like chaste and upright women when they were first caught. Before they were given Xiao Yan Powder, they still haven’t changed into the cheap appearance they show now.”
Saying that, from his feet, the killer grabs a girl’s chin up. With spittle and the smell of alcohol, he arrogantly says, “Dog bitch, why don’t you say it too?”
Tears of desperation trickle down the girls face, but to her shame, she couldn’t suppress a lascivious moan from spilling out her mouth.
At that moment, there’s suddenly something fluttering down from the sky.
Pink, petal-like things fall to the ground, and on the killers’ faces and bodies.
“What’s going on? Is it raining?”
“That’s not it. These are more like… petals?”
“But there aren’t any flowering trees around this yard, where would the petals fall from?”
Everyone is astonished. Unexpectedly, a melodious, pleasant sound of a zither could be heard from the distant horizon.
The thrumming and tinkling of the gentle notes are like pearls and jades falling on an ice tray, like the murmur of water running though mountains and rivers.
As the sound of the zither gets nearer, the music also becomes more moving.
From the high mountains and flowing streams, it slowly becomes a soft and euphonious language.
The killers of Jin Hong Men all exhibit expressions of intoxication, pairs of bleary eyes turn to the direction that the sound is coming from.
The “petals” are flowing abound, falling faster and in more volume, almost covering every part the killers’ bodies.
All of a sudden, from what they could see from the gaps in the petals, there’s a figure descending from the roof like falling snow.
The breeze blows through the pure white clothing, setting off the translucent jade complexion of the young woman. Those exquisite features stunning all the killers below.
Someone slightly gapes his mouth, not noticing the flowing drool as it patters down.
Another one pushes away the girl he’s unrestrainedly violating, lowly muttering, “Beauty, I want this beauty…”
When the young woman in white finally lands on the ground, her hair is slightly wind-tossed; amidst the petals wafting through the air, a small limpid smile is embellished on her lips.
Like an enchanting Immortal from above the Ninth Heaven that had strayed into the mundane world.
Someone gulps their spit down, eyes turning red.
Another one is already unable to stop himself from unsteadily walking over, lecherous swine hands stretching towards the girl’s delicate face.
The girl in white’s smile deepens further; jade fingers are like white scallions as they lightly pluck on the zither strings.
Boom – a single sound, the killer who is closest to the girl in white, like exploding fireworks, instantaneously blossoms into a dazzling red, spiking out and falling down
This unexpected development immediately snaps the killers back into wakefulness.
One of them can’t help but scream, “Who are you, dare to…”
The strings move, boom. Another sound, another man’s body explodes. It was the one who spoke. As with the previous man, no flesh is left intact. His entire body had turned into a mangled corpse within a blink of an eye.
“Who- who are you?!”
“Why… how did she kill?!”
“It’s the petals, the petals that have stuck to our bodies are from a special mysterious plant. So quickly, get rid of them!”
On the square, the killers of Jin Hong Men go wild, screaming and swatting away the petals that had fallen on them.
It was just moments ago that they felt that the petals were so beautiful, now they think how they are overwhelmingly dreadful.
And this beautiful girl in white is worse than a fiend, making them lose courage and tremble from the chill!
