Gu Xijiu replied with a tight smile. “That is great.”
At nightfall, the moon’s radiance filled the dark sky. At the residence of the governor of Suiye City, there was a tranquil backyard. The dismal wind could be heard through the bushes of purple bamboo.
In the depths of the bamboo garden stood a man in black robes. His face was unrecognizable under a mask with disturbing, ghostly features. His aura, however, was strong and definitely unapproachable.
“Master!” A man with pale green robes emerged in a rush. He bowed before the man in the ghostly mask.
“Master, what is the matter that has brought you here in the depth of the night?”
“Has anything odd happened in the city recently?”
“Yes, General Leng recently celebrated his son’s birthday at Feng Hua Restaurant.”
“There is no need to talk about that. I know about it well.” The man in dark robes interrupted, “I only want to know if there is anything wrong with the Longevity Locket from the woman.”
“Nothing is wrong. In fact, the child has grown to become more beautiful after wearing the Longevity Locket. After the embarrassment, General Leng wanted to send the Longevity Locket away, but he changed his mind after witnessing the change in his son’s complexion.”
Perplexed, the man in black continued, “Have you found out about the background of the man and the woman? How did they leave?”
“I have failed to find out their background. According to the restaurant owner, the man and the woman did not look very attractive at first. As normal as they could be, the only thing that was outstanding about them was their wealth. They were seated in the special guest room and had every signature dish that the restaurant had to offer. They did not even let the waiters serve them. To the owner’s surprise, he did not expect them to be so powerful. The woman turned out to be very beautiful as well, completely different from her first impression.”
“How did the man look?”
“He looked tall but with average looks.He donned green robes.”
The man in black frowned at the lack of information. It was very common to find a man with the aforementioned features. There was not a specific direction in the search. However, his intuition told him that the man must be someone extraordinary.
When the man and the woman made their entrance to the restaurant, they did not show anything about their true selves. Therefore, they must have cast a spell to hide away their looks. Who could they be?
“Is there anything wrong in the Devil Kingdom of the Shura World?”
“Nothing, it is quiet as per the usual. Sometimes, the people from the Devil Kingdom will come out to make some business transactions, but that is all. They have not caused any trouble so far.”
The man in black was confused. He added, “Why did the couple from the Devil Kingdom show up so publicly, then?”
The man in green made a guess, “Perhaps they did not intend to cause any trouble. The gift could merely be an impulsive decision incited by the cute little child. General Leng’s misbehavior in taking liberties of the lady had unfortunately infuriated them. They seemed like a couple. Not every man can tolerate that kind of sexual assault.”
“I do not believe in any act of kindness from the people of the Devil Kingdom. The gift was sent without any apparent reason. There must be something behind their action. Send your man to retrieve the Longevity Locket for me. I need to examine it myself.”
“Yes!” The man in green left swiftly.
After a while, another mysterious figure made a sudden entrance from above and landed right before the man in black. “Master!”
She had a beautiful face of a child, blessed with a sweet, charming smile. She was Die Er.
“Die Er, is there any news from your investigation on Yun Qingluo?”
“Master, Yun Qingluo is dead. This was the result of her obsessive practice of Kung Fu almost a year ago. We have investigated her dead body and found nothing unusual. We dug her body out from the tomb and realized that her flesh was still intact, exactly like how she used to look when she was still alive.”
The man in black thought about the oddity for a moment. Indeed, Yun Qingluo had a unique physique that allowed her body to remain intact even after death. Was she not the woman in the restaurant, then?
