Ch 53.03

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

The civilians chatting happened to hold up the most amount of time, even provoking people with jokes. The entire ghost market was peacefully quiet, only this place was noisy. Not long after, all of the ghosts were practically drifting to this side to watch an exciting show.

I coughed dryly. Originally, I wanted to take advantage of Née Zhou’s unhappiness, and quickly withdraw from this marriage, but I never thought that before I could speak, Née Zhou immediately said: “You will go with me to write the green document now!”


The red document meant wedding and the green document meant divorce. Her suggestion was very in line with my thoughts. It was just that I had wanted to boot her son, but now she was the first to say these words, it appeared that her family wanted to break it off with me… I must demand a reason from her.

Off to the side, when the scholar heard these words, he was more anxious than me. He urgently grabbed Née Zhou’s hand: “Mother! No…”

“Why not?!” Née Zhou was furious, “My son has good fortune and virtue after his death. He naturally deserves the best lady in this world! There is no need to pick this… This…” In the end, she still did not say the words in her mouth. She only hated the iron for not becoming steel and pulled her son, grinding her teeth and saying softly, “For so many years, your mother has chosen for you! Why did you fall for this girl who has had a marital relationship with another!”


I was stunned.


“Old woman, people who carelessly start rumors and say malicious words in front of me, Lu Zhao Yao, it is unknown how many times they have become fetuses. Even though you’re dead now, you should still pay attention to your words.”


“Pay attention to what?!” Née Zhou dragged the skinny, shriveled-up little ghost back, and snatched the mirror in his hand. Disregarding the noisy chatter and the desire to beat her up coming from the little ghost next to her, Née Zhou held the mirror up to show me, “Take a look yourself! What is written on this! Lu Zhao Yao! Which year and month, when and where, doing what with who! My old face is thin-skinned! I can’t read it out loud! Read it yourself!”


As she gave the mirror to me, I hurriedly accepted it. Accompanying that little ghost’s ear-piercing screech were the old woman’s laments to heaven and earth, and the scholar’s urges for peace from one side to the next, countless noises and voices along with the words in the mirror intruded into my mind.


I read these few lines of words as if I was illiterate. I narrowed my eyes, widened my eyes, looked at it from the left, and looked at it from the right. Looking back and forth, thinking about the information in this mirror, I actually could not comprehend it at all —

In the year of Xin Chou, on the third day of October, on Chen Ji Mountain, in front of Wan Lu Sect, under the memorial arch, Lu Zhao Yao forced the disciple, Li Chen Lan, to a night of sexual intercourse, conduct was crude, movements were barbaric, got a comfortable night, committed a rape crime.”




Me and who?

Li Chen Lan? Mo Qing?

What did I do all night? Even crude and barbaric? Comfortable? Who was comfortable? Me? What crime was that in the end?

What the hell!

As I held the mirror, my mind was a little puzzled and a little anxious. I asked Née Zhou: “What is this thing? If you guys charge me for the crimes of murder and arson, then I, Lu Zhao Yao, will admit to it, but what the hell is this? Isn’t it ridiculous?”

Me and Mo Qing? I raped him?


Who recorded this? Someone absolutely had to be playing with me, right?

The other three were happily creating a ruckus, so they did not pay attention to me. I just held onto the mirror and looked at it for a long time, so long that I almost saw through these words. In the end, all the ghost bailiffs that patrolled the ghost market rushed over. As the other three ghosts had finished causing a disturbance, the bailiffs captured Née Zhou and also detained the scholar.

The little ghost bounced up and snatched the mirror from within my hand.


Behind me, the bailiffs wanted to come arrest me, but their hands passed through my body. Finally, on my hand, they fastened a type of iron chain to catch me.

I just distractedly let them catch me. I did not feel like resisting at all. It was because… I was still in the midst of chaos.

The little ghost fiercely swept a glance past me along with Née Zhou and the scholar, pointing and scolding at each and every one of us: “You guys disturb official business! Arrest them all and put them in prison for me!” Finally, he fixed his attention on me, “You! You even sneaked a peek at the information about your life! You pay me back! Lu Zhao Yao! One hundred thousand coins! If you can’t pay me, then I’ll make you go straight to prison!”


I only felt that everything in front of me was so preposterous.

This world of ghosts was far different from the world of humans, making it difficult for me to comprehend.

Suddenly… I actually thought that the fight between life or death with Luo Ming Xuan compared to this kind of current situation had me feeling even more relaxed, less emotionally taxing…

    1. So scandalous! Most def, the deed was done! And on top of that, she got accused for being a rapist! How can a girl live that down now?! I thought it was funny that on the accusation, it said that she had a comfortable night! … Mo Qing did all the work, Zhao Yao didn’t do anything!

      In the drama, the producers gotta keep it PG. Only kisses and hugs are allowed… And ambiguous meanings…


  1. oh gee XD this part always gets to me lol Zhao Yao you!!
    Cant wait for right next part where she learns all the details hahah what am embarrassment yet I love her still.

    Thanks for the update.

    1. Poor her, indeed. She always believed that she was a virgin and turns out she wasn’t and she doesn’t even remember the deed! At least in the battle, she’s not confused on what’s going on. So, it’s understandable that she prefers the battle.


  2. I definitely did not expect the rape accusation!
    Somehow I doubt this is how Mo Qing sees this…
    Of course she thinks battling Luo Ming Quan was easier, I don’t think she was emotionally equiped to handle any of this!
    Literally can’t wait for next chapter!!!

  4. Hahaha, ok I was not expecting it to be this clear in the novel, and even so far as for Zhao Yao to be charged with rape! I guess since Li Chen Lan was her disciple and we know how the teacher-disciple relationships are forbidden!

    I still can’t believe I missed so many of your updates and translations in these months, the year has just flown by and I’ve been so incredibly busy. Thank you again for all your hard work!
