~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~


“Where are you?”

I could hear Mo Qing’s voice, he had lost a little of his usual calmness.

“I know you can hear me. You, come back. You can discuss anything with me. Whatever plans that you have, just leave it to me.”

I ignored him, all other things could be discussed, but only this matter alone was impossible.


If Luo Ming Xuan did not awaken, then everything was easy to handle. I could borrow Zhi Yan’s body, act coquettishly to Mo Qing, pretend to speak softly and warmly to him, let him help me and assist me, because at that time, my enemy was someone else.

But if Luo Ming Xuan woke up, then there would be no discussion.


Many years ago, I personally sealed him. Even if I squandered this life, I would not borrow somebody else’s power in Wan Lu Sect because the fight with Luo Ming Xuan belonged only to me.

No one was allowed to help nor allowed to obstruct.

Even if I was dead, I would crawl out of hell, using my torn body and dried up bones, because I would still want to make the blood in Luo Ming Xuan’s heart be dry forever.

As a ghost, if there was an obsession, then this was considered to be my one and only strongest obsession.

“You’re not allowed to be alone!”

I heard Mo Qing’s cry behind me and my heart tightened indescribably.


As if I could feel the pain and fear that he hid in the deep wounds of his body. I could also feel the warmth and ticklishness in the cracks of my ice-cold soul…

“Lu Zhao Yao!”

My footsteps paused, but it only paused for a moment, then it did not stop any more, and drifted straight into the forest.

No matter how warm or how ticklish, I still could not discuss it with Mo Qing. I wanted to get my own revenge, while he… Was still injured.

I floated to the small tavern and found Zi You: “Buy a Resurrecting Pill for me, some time in the future, I will find someone to burn paper offerings for you.” I went straight to the point.


Zi You froze: “Why so suddenly…”

“Buy it or not?”

Zi You was just like Zhi Yan from a moment ago, he got somewhat spooked by me. I was very familiar with this expression of theirs. When I was alive, after I had killed Luo Ming Xuan, many people looked at me with the same expression, carrying dread and shuddering subconsciously.

For many years… I thought I would never see another person who would be so scared of my face again.

On the contrary, I somewhat cherished the memory.

“I… I’m just afraid that it’s impossible…” I got up to leave, Zi You quickly reached out to stop me, but his hand simply passed through my soul, “Listen to me, it’s not that I’m unwilling to help you! I’m here as a waiter because I cannot remember my own full name! I only remember my nickname, therefore, I can’t even receive the money burn from the human world! I can only make money here in order to go to the ghost market to buy what I want to buy!”

I drifted towards the ghost market, while he kept chasing me with all his might.


I had taken the Energy Boosting Pill, so he could not catch up. The more his eyes rested on me, the farther I was, so he desperately shouted: “That’s just the first! The second is that the ghost market does allow another person to help others buy things, but only if there’s a family relationship!”

As I drifted further away, I could no longer hear his words. At this time, when I returned to the place where I had unpossessed Zhi Yan’s body, Mo Qing had already taken her body away. I could guess where he was going, he wanted to go look for Luo Ming Xuan. Perhaps, he did not know what I could do after becoming a ghost, but he definitely must know that I wanted to go find Luo MIng Xuan.

I no longer cared about him, and continued to drift into the ghost market.


I stopped the old lady, who had been searching for a daughter-in-law in the ghost market all year round. I disclosed to her my eight-character birthdate, then I said: “I’m a virgin ghost. I’m willing to marry your son. Now let’s immediately go get the posthumous nuptial handled for me. As your family’s betrothal gift to me, I just want — you to buy a Resurrecting Pill for me.”

The old lady stared at me for a while, then she immediately clapped her hands: “Ai-ya, okay, the looks are fine, the butt is curved, the eight-character birthdate is suitable, I finally found a match for my son! I have a daughter-in-law!”


Oh, yes, you got a daughter-in-law now. When I was alive, I thought that I would not get married even if I was beaten to death. Now that I was finally dead, I was going to get married after all.

  1. Lu Zhao Yao ignoring Mo Qing’s desperate plea is heart breaking but realistic given her stubborn character.
    I also have to underline that in the novel everything is much more thorougly explained. While watching this scene in the drama I was a little confused as to how she was able to brush off the fact that Mo Qing called her by her name.
    But here it is much more evident that is consumed by hatred and vengenance to the point of ignoring everything else.
    And besides she had already figured out that Mo Qing knew who she was so she wasn’t that surprised.
    I can’t wait for them to be reunited!
    Thank you for translating.
