Chapter 48: The Soul of the Deceased Has Not Yet Dispersed

“Neigh!” The carriage suddenly swayed once and immediately stopped.

The voices of the chamberlains asking for instruction could be heard coming from outside.

“Your Highness, we arrived at the tavern.”

“I understand.” Fu Yujun replied and raised his hand to wipe the blood from his mouth. Giving Ling Xiao a glance, he took the lead and walked out.

Ling Xiao held his wound and pushed aside the curtain, walking out as well.

The moment he got off the carriage, he saw Fu Yujun waiting for him not too far away. He stared blankly, then strenuously and slowly walked, catching up to Fu Yujun.

Fu Yujun suddenly raised his hand and threw a small bottle to him. Ling Xiao caught it in a flurry and looked at it, it felt strangely familiar.

But when he thought about it some more, he had no particularly impression of it.

“The Mu Country Emperor wanted me to give you that and told me to tell you to take care of your body.”

Just as Ling Xiao felt confused, Fu Yujun jokingly said in front of him, light like a feather.

Ling Xiao staggered and almost fell on the ground. Luckily, Fu Yujun had good eyes and supported him, “Hearing that the Mu Country Emperor is so caring toward you, you almost fell from happiness?”

Ling Xiao raised his head to look at Fu Yujun, his mouth twitching. Which of Fu Yujun’s eyes saw that he was happy?

He was obviously horrified!

It was already out of his expectations that the Emperor would chase after him. What was even stranger was that the Emperor chased and gave up halfway!

The Emperor Ling Xiao knew, either doesn’t make a decision or will not change it easily once he made one.

Just what kind of agreement did Fu Yujun make with the Emperor, causing him to give up the chase? Furthermore, this medicine…

Ling Xiao tightly held the medicine and hid it in his sleeve. This medicine was clearly the one used to smear on his private parts. He originally couldn’t recall, but once the Emperor was mentioned, Ling Xiao remembered…

Just what was this Emperor thinking?! He even had Fu Yujun hand him this medicine!

Why is it that even now, when he has clearly left the palace, it felt like the Emperor was still by his side…

Ling Xiao pursed his lip, silently shaking off Fu Yujun’s support and slowly walked to the tavern.

Entering the tavern, Ling Xiao made straight for the second floor to wash himself. However, what he did not know was that his whole body was covered in hickeys and traces of ruthless love and only learnt of it once his clothes were removed.

Even with all that, his body was rather vigorous. He thought that with the injury on his body and being treated the way he was, he wouldn’t be able to crawl out of bed. But aside from the unbearable pain from when he first woke up, he was slowly getting better.

The only problem was that smearing that area behind with the Emperor’s medicine, still did not make it easier to bear. Sitting and standing all caused a lot pain.

At first, he was going to sleep. But who knew that after he finished washing himself up, Fu Yujun would pull him downstairs.

Ling Xiao also remained silent, he let it be. Since he was reborn, all his injuries healed quickly. This Fu Yujun was obviously injured, but he still acted as if he wasn’t injured at all.

He seemed to have sensed Ling Xiao’s doubts and answered his question, “What I have is an internal injury. Relying on rest won’t make it better.”

Alright then.

Ling Xiao rolled his eyes and followed Fu Yujun to a seat near the window downstairs. Fu Yujun ordered some dishes and set about pouring Ling Xiao a cup of tea.

Ling Xiao raised it and drank a mouthful. He then saw Fu Yujun who was resting his chin on his arm, lovingly watching him, his sight extremely touching and gentle. A burst of chills went through Ling Xiao and he placed down his teacup, uncomfortably asking him, “Why are you looking at me like this?”

“I am thinking about how really different you are from when you were in the palace.” Fu Yujun smiled as he watched Ling Xiao without blinking, as if he was staring at a rare item, full of pleasant surprise.

Ling Xiao couldn’t keep his eye from twitching, and asked, “What’s so different?”

“In the palace, I have seen you a few times. You were always trembling, cautious and solemn. Although it was interesting, it was not conspicuous. After getting out of the palace, look at yourself, just where do you still look like a servant?”

Ling Xiao raised his eyebrow, his gaze on Fu Yujun as he said, “I wasn’t your servant in the first place.”

“Yeah.” Fu Yujun lightly smiled, “Your identity is no longer simple.”

A flash of light flitted through Fu Yujun’s eyes as he said that, and was coincidently seen by Ling Xiao. Ling Xiao asked suspiciously, “What do you mean?”

“Have you guys seen the announcement? Our Emperor is going to choose a King Consort!” the voice of a man suddenly was heard from the next table.

Ling Xiao was stunned. The Emperor was going to establish a King Consort?

His attention shifted from Fu Yujun to the next table in a moment.

Three youthful men sat there, all wearing plain cotton clothing. One man lifted his teacup with the other two sitting in front of him, full of astonishment on their faces. The one that spoke was precisely the one that lifted his teacup.

Ling Xiao looked at him and he heard him say, “In a month time from today, will be the day the Emperor confers the title of King Consort. The Emperor is excusing us from taxes for one year!”

“This is a good thing.” One of the men couldn’t help but smile when he heard that they were relieved of taxes.

“This is our Mu Country’s first King Consort.” Another man interrupted, “I wonder who’s the one who became the Emperor’s favored one.”

“Hm… I think the name was Ling Xiao.” One man remembered.

Ling Xiao heard this and almost dropped the teacup in his hand. His expression was one of amazement, as he then saw Fu Yujun teasingly watching him.

Ling Xiao cleared his mind and looked at Fu Yujun who was not the least bit surprised, clenching his teeth, “You knew already?”

“The Mu Country Emperor told me of that before.” Fu Yujun drank his tea, “He… really is determined to bring you back.”

Ling Xiao went silent and Fu Yujun propped up his chin while watching him. This small servant’s worry was written on his face. His dispirit appearance with his head hanging down was not lively like before. Fu Yujun pursed his lips, consoling him, “You don’t need to be too worried. I do not believe that he would still be able to snatch you back after you enter the Shao Country.”

“Snatch?” Ling Xiao’s mouth twitched. Was he an item?

Ling Xiao sneered. Since he was now out of the palace, he also did not need to stay by Fu Yujun’s side. He would rather leave at the first opportunity…

“That’s right, they forgot to say something. The Emperor announced to the whole country, that the Eunuch Steward Ling that dared to lie to him was already executed.” Fu Yujun suddenly said.

Ling Xiao once again raised his head in shock.

Dead? Isn’t he Steward Ling? He died? But next month the Emperor would be conferring him the title of King Consort?

What is the Emperor calculating?

Ling Xiao lowered his head, his hair covering his expression so Fu Yujun could not know what he was thinking about right now.

“Your Highness.” Suddenly, a soft cry arrived by his ear, the voice was so familiar it made people not dare to believe it. He abruptly raised his head, his gaze rooted at where the sound came from.

A body clad in pink clothing, sweet attitude with a beautiful appearance and a seductive gaze. It was someone he was so familiar with he couldn’t ever mistake them. The person who should have been dead—Mo Qi!

Ling Xiao suddenly stood up, his face full of disbelief, “You… you…”

He pointed at Mo Qi, unable to say anything for a long time. Mo Qi suddenly grabbed his hand, approaching his ear and tenderly laughed out, “It’s me, Ling Xiao. I have returned from the netherworld!”

  1. August says:

    Mo Qi. pls return to whatever hole you crawled out of, thanks
    Already looking forward to more facesmacking

    • Siren queen says:

      When I saw that she’s returned I was thinking “oh shit looks like he has to kill her another time “

  2. Soah says:

    Bleh just stay back.. you’re like overdue and obsolete now Mo Qi

  3. GhOStGiRL says:

    Man, Mo Qi’s worse than trying get rid of glitter, at least glitters pretty to look at…..?

    • Myaa~ says:

      Unless it gets in your eyes. Then it will hateful. They’re actually kind of the same now that I think about it. ?

      • demonbookworm says:

        Wouldn’t sand be a better description of her instead? Sand is also hard to get rid off and is disgusting. If you choose glitter it is at least a little pretty and there are some that is edible. Getting sand in your eye is just as bad as getting glitter in your eye. Sand is just more unhygienic and ugly like a certain beach….. >.>

        • Faith says:


          but I read a story once where a lady lost an eye because of (craft) glitter. They’re basically tiny shards of metal after all. I don’t think even Mo Qi is that effective… She just kind of flails uselessly and throws tantrums lol

          • demonbookworm says:

            Sand can still infect people. And I have to agree that she isn’t very effective….. She is actually quite useless in this story exact for giving Ling Xiao more motivation and accidentally twerp Ling Xiao or the Emperor’s plans. And later in giving even more fuel for the two main lead as well as the side characters. In fact even after she is gone, the story is still doing just fine and dandy with or without her. ಠ_ಠ)

            • SnowTime says:

              To put simply, she’s like a cockroach ?

            • sunshinenetherlightgmailcom says:

              So she’s basically either a maggot that can nearly anywhere or a ate stage cancer that would not leave no matter

    • demonbookworm says:

      Well in hindsight it is better than having her existence being dragged on for close to over 1,000 chapters.

  4. raizaelian says:

    Ummm.. Who cares Mo Qi. No one want you back.

  5. cohran says:

    Why doesn’t this woman just die?!

  6. noll17 says:

    • SnowTime says:

      I wonder who made the camping emoji.

  7. Jostena M. says:

    Just crawl in a hole and die already you annoying bug!!! No one literally wants to even hear your name not to mention seeing your ugly face!!!
    Okay my anger is a little better now XD

  8. Solrein says:

    Mo Qi this vermin, so hard to die ah, is she really not an evil spirit instead?

  9. sevfulmine says:

    囧 Mo Qi you vermin!

  10. demonbookworm says:

    Seeing that this novel is under 100 chapters I am glad that annoyance won’t be here too long to harm my eyes unlike a certain fake fairy of a certain Jade lake from a certain novel that has been dragging that fake fairy’s life for over a thousand chapters. .-. Thank you for the updates!!! \o/

    • Queen Oceananas says:

      im very interested in what story you are referring to in that comment XD

      • Wee~ says:

        Demon King Chases His Wife: The rebellious good-for-nothing miss

      • hana says:


      • demonbookworm says:

        It is Demonic King Chases Wife: The Rebellious Good-for-nothing miss. When you get to the fake fairy part don’t worry because it is only a one sided love from the fake fairy. I just feel really bad for his second disciple brother. Don’t worry. He show up really late in the novel and you would probably feel bad for him soon after you met him. It is still pretty ok at the moment seeing as I am already at chapter 1,159. (-_-”)

    • Passerby says:

      Is it perhaps “The Demonic King Chases His Wife: The Rebellious Good-For-Nothing Miss.” you are speaking of? If it is, then we can just hope she dies by the golems hands. Woman deserves it.

      • demonbookworm says:

        Yeah. At this point one of the main reason I’m still reading this novel is to find out when and how that fake fairy dies. (-_-“) The author must have really liked that fake fairy or just couldn’t think of another antagonist/plot device to have let her lived for so long. Her death should have happened over 500 chapters ago. (-。-; Well that and who Su Lou’s parents are. (°▽°)

        • Passerby says:

          I feel you, the fake fairy is just annoying. Let’s hope she dies next chapter. But at least we have a faint idea of who Su Lou’s parents are. I feel like I’m continuing it for the little dragon (and now the nine-tailed fox.) sometimes. they’re definitely my favourite characters right now.

  11. Faith says:

    Am I crazy or is there less than 25 chapters to go!?!? Your stalking team is cheering you on!

  12. Passerby says:

    I’m not sure if it’s just me but only one line of the chapter pops up? I’ve checked chapters beyond this and they only ever had a few lines at most. Could someone please help or explain?

    • SnowTime says:

      Teaser/place holders until I actually do the chapters lol

  13. ana2kia says:

    I hope the comments can motivate you!
    Mo Qi… You should’ve hid.

    • SnowTime says:

      It feeds my growing ego and melting motivation ?

  14. Nin says:

    Thanks for that chapter! A fast upbdate! The author recycles Mo Qui? Was there really no other possibility than to use her again?

  15. CrushUrHeart says:

    Dear snowy, your AC died again? Seems like your AC needs a transmigration more than any character in this novel ?. And mo qi is more resilient than a cockroach survivng a nuclear blast! Her plot armor is strong this time ? I wonder how she will annoy lingxiao this time hahah

    • SnowTime says:

      It never revived in the first place orz it was just the weather cooling off, but now it’s shooting back up QAQ

  16. grassbloop says:

    Awww I wish it was hot here. Its only hot at night which is bs cause I cant sleep cause of it.
    Why cant Mo qi just stay dead? Like why tf did Fu Yujun protect her ._. I cant even trust that boi anymore

  17. thewickling says:

    *Throws Holy water on her*

  18. maiha sama says:

    Eiii Da faq you playing at fu yujun??? Why dis lady be alive eh? She was the one who planned to get you off. *flabbergasted*
    Mo Qi, get a hint and die permanently already.. nobody wants you -scoff-

  19. Xenosaga says:

    Fuck, why are YOU BACK?!?!?!

  20. Devandree Reddy says:

    Why can’t she stay dead!….Thank you obiwan
    For translating

  21. akumakawa says:

  22. Blaze says:

  23. yiddi says:
