That day, right in front of Mo Qing, I immediately “vanished into a puff of smoke.” He did not even know what the ghost world looked like, so the only possibility that he could think of was probably to return and find Zhi Yan, but even if Mo Qing found Zhi Yan, it was still useless because this time none of them knew where I was.

After all…

Even I, myself, did not expect that when I left the Soul Return Store, I would encounter a situation like this; I was immediately arrested, imprisoned, and detained for three days. However… I, at last, got to know about the secret past related to myself.

I drifted into Zhi Yan’s body. While next to me, Zhi Yan was wiping her tears and chokingly saying:

“Three days ago, Li Chen Lan came back to find me. He constantly asked me, where’s Lu Zhao Yao, where’s Lu Zhao Yao, he almost scared me to death… It was only later that I became aware that he had already known about our tricks. But when he asked me so anxiously at that time, how could I know where you were, so I thought that your soul was still on Feng Mountain. Li Chen Lan led me there to find you, but we did not see you, so we returned once again. After that, I spent a day looking for you on the mountain, then I spent another day looking for you in the ghost market, I couldn’t find you anywhere I went…”

When she spoke up to this point, she drew back the corners of her lips, wanting to cry again, “Great Demon King, where have you been these past few days, huh? Scared me to death. At Wu E Palace, Li Chen Lan is dispersing his divine sense to find you. If you didn’t appear today…” She paused for a moment, impatiently gazing at me, “Why aren’t you anxiously entering my body?”

I looked at her, feeling a little frantic. However, I still forcibly suppressed my emotions, looking at the color in the sky and saying: “It’s no hurry, wait until it’s the Hour of the Rat, then I’ll try again.”

*Hour of the Rat (子时 – zǐ shí) – between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m.

When Zhi Yan heard what I said, her face became solemn and she stopped nagging and crying. She immediately drifted to my side and circled around me twice: “Great Demon King, you… Your soul is much fainter… Just now, I didn’t even notice it. This body of yours seems a little fuzzy. What happened to you?”

“I took the Resurrection Pill.” As my heart sank, I said, “It’s possible that my soul has some changes… I haven’t disappeared yet! You’re not allowed to cry!”

“Hu…” After Zhi Yan got scolded by me, she immediately bit her lower lip and gazed at me with tearful eyes.

“My body is still in the world of the living, perhaps there is still a little bit of life force left inside, so I’m now considered a half-dead person. Therefore, when you knocked yourself against my grave, your soul left your body, but you didn’t die, so you could see me.” I tried to explain it to her as simple as possible, “But this time because I wanted to get rid of Luo Ming Xuan, I took the Resurrection Pill… The things in the ghost market, the more I eat, the closer I’ll be to death. It’s especially the case with the Resurrection Pill, so now the body of my soul may have changed a little bit compared to before. It’s not as easy to enter your body, and maybe in the future, I won’t be able to enter your body more.”

Even…. Maybe after a while longer, the life force in my body would fade away, then even Zhi Yan would not be able to see me.

I refrained from telling her these words.

“Right now, it’s almost the Hour of the Rat, so after a moment, I will try again to see if I can enter your body. If I can enter, then that’s great. But if I can’t, then you properly re-enter your body, go back, and tell Li Chen Lan my situation. Tell him not to worry, I will drift to his side.”

“So… So in the future, if you can no longer enter, then how do you want to communicate with Li Chen Lan?”

“You’ll relay my words. Then we’ll go find my body as soon as possible.”

“Where’s your body?”

I rolled my eyes and looked at Zhi Yan: “Where’s your Big Uncle?”

Zhi Yan was dumbfounded and thought for a moment: “It seems like… When East Mountain Lord carried my Big Uncle away from Xian Tai Mountain and later got lost, I no longer heard any news about the two of them… In the past few days, Li Chen Lan went crazy, looking for you. Everyone in Wan Lu Sect was dispatched to scout the world for strange occurrences relating to ghosts, so no one went out to make discreet inquiries about their news…”

Therefore, it was assumed that the two of them had been missing since then?!

I was speechless. Little Shi Qi was someone with no sense of direction, so did Qin Qian Xian have a poor sense of direction, too? Chen Ji Mountain was such a big mountain that was poking out over yonder, you guys still could not find it?

However, being together with Shi Qi… Anything could happen.

So I temporarily placed this matter aside. After waiting for a while, I saw that the time was the Hour of the Rat, I calmed down and drifted above Zhi Yan’s body. Coming face-to-face, my soul and her body started to harmonize and slowly merged together. After a short period of time, I slowly felt the heaviness in my fingertips, the heartbeats pulsing in my body, and the blood flowing back and forth like a shuttle.

I opened my eyes, and saw Zhi Yan’s soul floating by my side.

I sat up and moved the muscles and bones about: “Ultimately, this body of yours is still not as good as my own body.”

She happily circled and bounced around twice: “You’re in! you’re in! Hurry up and go find Li Chen Lan!”

Without needing her to tell me, I twirled my fingers and utilized the Instantaneous Travel Technique. In a split second, I immediately set foot in Wu E Palace.


Above Wu E Palace, the bright moon was shining silvery light everywhere. As I stepped in, the silvery light seemed to fluctuate slowly.

I was startled, but knew what kind of magical array this was — the Ninth Heaven Technique. It could explore up to the Ninth Heaven and search down to the Nine Springs. It was a magical technique that could observe everywhere in the whole world. As long as he wanted to, he could even hear the sounds of flowers blooming thousands of miles away.


However, this magic consumed an extreme amount of spiritual essence. The farther he explored, the more damage it would cause to his divine sense.

Zhi Yan said that Mo Qing had exhausted his divine sense to look for me, but I did not expect him to arrange such a large array.


I went inside Wu E Palace, only to find Mo Qing sitting upright on the divan. In the room, the silvery light on the ground was even more brilliant, like the vast starry sky sprinkled on the ground with a softness that was peaceful and refreshing.
