Ah Bai snuggled into Yan Tianhen’s arms and stretched out his tongue to lick his wrist.
Hu Po, who had always been very prideful, trotted over slowly, jumped on Yan Tianhen’s thighs, and rubbed his head against Yan Tianhen’s chest.
“Anyways, you still have Ah Bai and Hu Po!”
Lin Xuanzhi had noticed that Yan Tianhen was acting strange, but Yan Tianhen’s mouth was like a clamshell that couldn’t be opened no matter how he tried. He didn’t want to force Yan Tianhen to do something he didn’t want to do either, so he went back to his room, took out a Voice Transmission Bell, and lightly shook it a few times. Very soon, a slight ringing sound could be heard from a distance.
“Xuanzhi.” The other side’s voice contained traces of a smile as it continued, “You left not long ago, yet you want to talk to me again?”
Lin Xuanzhi ignored the other party’s teasingly ambiguous tone and replied, “I want to ask you to help me investigate something.”
Bai Yichen was slightly surprised. “You rarely ever take the initiative to speak, what do you want to investigate?”
Lin Xuanzhi’s eyes were slightly cold. “Check who has gone to the falling flower forest outside Yudai Mountain today.”
“Okay.” Bai Yichen readily agreed and didn’t ask why Lin Xuanzhi wanted him to investigate this. He only said, “I haven’t paid you yet for the two cups you brought me.”
Lin Xuanzhi lightly responded, “Then just keep on owing for now.”
“I dare not owe you this. Your favors aren’t something that can be repaid with money.”
“Then pay it back with a favor.”
Bai Yichen chuckled, “I thought you’d say I have to pay it back by devoting my heart to you.”
Lin Xuanzhi found that Bai Yichen was always stirring him up, and his words always developed in a very ambiguous direction. Of course, Lin Xuanzhi didn’t believe that Bai Yichen really took a fancy to him and wanted to have some great development with him.
“Huangfu Jin really is pitiful.” Lin Xuanzhi spoke bluntly.
“What’s to pity? At least he still has a senior martial brother with him. I, however, am a lonely soul through and through.”
“You don’t have to be such a lonely person either.” Lin Xuanzhi continued, “Huangfu Jin hangs onto every word you say and is devoted to you, why do you not consider him?”
“Because the person he trusts wholeheartedly and holds deep affection towards isn’t me.” Bai Yichen smiled. “You only know that Leng Jixue is one of my split souls, but you don’t know that he and I are in actuality two different people. Leng Jixue has all of my kindness and compassion. Even the Dao of Heaven is reluctant to strike against such a person, but I — I am a person who is cursed by the Dao of Heaven.”

Lin Xuanzhi paused. “Have you ever wondered what would happen to Huangfu Jin if, one day, Leng Jixue was no longer in the world?”

If Bai Yichen wanted to continue living and break the Dao of Heaven’s curse, then he would surely have to collect that soul fragment within Leng Jixue’s body one day and once again merge it with his own soul. As a result, Leng Jixue would naturally disappear from this world.
“Xuanzhi, are you concerned about me or about Huangfu Jin?” Bai Yichen asked.
“It’s merely a matter of repaying karma.” Lin Xuanzhi lightly replied.
In his previous life, he should have killed Huangfu Jin to avenge Yan Tianhen, but afterward, Huangfu Jin tormented himself into such a pathetic state that death would have been more merciful, so Lin Xuanzhi refused to dirty his hands any further.
In this lifetime, he didn’t really intend to deal with Huangfu Jin with his own hands.
He owed Bai Yichen karma and also took advantage of Bai Yichen’s great grace in his past life. Without this person, he wouldn’t have had the opportunity to recuperate in the soul plate and become a craftsman, not to mention repairing the Revert World Mirror and letting everything return to its starting point.
Since kindness outweighed enmity, Lin Xuanzhi didn’t intend to delve into further retaliation against Huangfu Jin.
After all, even if he didn’t scheme against Huangfu Jin, Huangfu Jin still couldn’t win against Bai Yichen no matter how hard he tried.
He mistakenly gave his entire passionate heart to an impossible person. Perhaps even in the end, when he fell into a state of extreme despair and was beside himself with an inconsolably broken heart, he still couldn’t even understand exactly who his most beloved person was.
Lin Xuanzhi was unwilling to be mixed up in such emotional matters and finally said, “Tell me the result as soon as possible.”
Lin Xuanzhi took back the voice transmission bell and didn’t say much to Bai Yichen after that.
When he returned to Yan Tianhen’s room, he found that Yan Tianhen seemed to have returned to normal. Not only did he let Lin Xuanzhi rub his small face, but he also asked about Ji Yunwei’s affairs like nothing had happened.
Lin Xuanzhi avoided the important matters and dwelt on the trivial while telling the story to Yan Tianhen. He naturally wouldn’t tell him those indescribable matters between adults. He only said that Ji Yunwei had offended a fox and wanted some magic treasures from Lin Xuanzhi to deal with it.
Just like that, the two spent a peaceful and harmonious day together.
Speaking of Ji Yunwei, after he obtained the Demon Binding Rope, his heart became a lot more confident. He naturally wouldn’t put all his hope onto this rope; he’d also prepared a lot of mysterious drugs and magic weapons effective for trapping demonic beasts.
Ji Yunwei took out almost everything in his possession in order to make this work. He couldn’t wait to capture the shameless fox tonight and teach him an unforgettable lesson.
Night fell. The moon was dark and the winds high. Ji Yunwei lied on the bed and pretended to sleep, his eyes closed, but was in fact constantly perceiving the situation around him with all five senses.
Once one o’clock passed, the window that was originally securely closed by a treasure was blown open by a gust of wind, revealing a small crack. A pure white figure, like a demonic ghost, fell silently on Ji Yunwei’s bedside.
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox had already visited for six consecutive days.
He shook nine fluffy tails and swept Ji Yunwei’s face with one of them.
Ji Yunwei violently opened his eyes and glowered at the fox, whose coquettish eyes were narrow and slim. “Why did you come here again? Get out.”
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox jumped onto Ji Yunwei’s body and stretched out his tongue, licking Ji Yunwei’s lips. Because the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox used his cultivation level and power to press down Ji Yunwei, he couldn’t move a bit. Thus, the fox was able to wantonly take advantage of him.
Ji Yunwei’s entire body trembled with anger but he was also helpless.
The difference was too great and he couldn’t resist.
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox blinked and turned into a naked young man with silver hair. He had a very attractive and charming face. His skin was smooth and white, like fine silk. He pulled Ji Yunwei’s hand and touched it to his own chest, smiling, “What am I doing here, husband? Of course I’m asking for you, love. Doesn’t husband miss me if you don’t see me for one day? But I miss my husband, as though not seeing you for one day is akin to not seeing you for three entire autumns. My heart aches just thinking about it.”
Ji Yunwei had some nausea and felt sick. His icy eyes stared into the Nine-Tailed Nine Fox’s purple eyes that were moist with lust and desire. “I feel disgusted when I see you. Get out and stay away from me. Otherwise, I won’t be polite.”
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s expression looked somewhat sad. He straddled Ji Yunwei’s waist with his legs. A pair of beautiful hands probed towards Ji Yunwei’s sleepwear on his chest.
“I won’t be happy if husband says it like this. You and I clearly have an affinity with each other. It’s not like you didn’t feel good either…”
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s finger moved back and forth under Ji Yunwei’s clothes, gently caressing his muscles. The fox’s eyes showed grievance. He pouted, “So husband should properly compensate me tonight.”
Humiliation and shame appeared on Ji Yunwei’s face. He closed his eyes, as if accepting his fate.
Suddenly, the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox touched something that gave him a strange feeling. His expression immediately changed, and he wanted to run outside but was firmly tied down in an instant by the thing that brought him a great sense of danger.
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox fell onto the floor like a dog gnawing at the mud.
“You-” A trace of surprise flashed through the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s eyes. He struggled against the golden rope but found that his own cultivation actually had no effect at all when bound in this rope.
“Where did you get this rope?” The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox asked with wide eyes.
“So it’s actually a little useful.” Ji Yunwei put on a coat and stepped down from the bed. He squatted down beside the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox, held his sharp chin, narrowed his eyes, and sneered, “Do you think that I can’t kill you?”
There was no panic in the fox’s eyes. Even though he became a prisoner, he was only startled for a split second.
“Husband, what do you want to tie me up for?” The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox asked. “If you want to be on top, then just tell me directly. It’s not like I’ll refuse.”
“Disgusting!” Ji Yunwei said viciously.
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox stretched out his tongue and licked Ji Yunwei’s hand.
Ji Yunwei was seriously disgusted this time. All of a sudden, he shook off the fox’s chin and slapped him with the back of his hand.
A crisp and clear sound rang out.
The corner of the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s mouth was bloodied.
He licked the corners of his lips and, still smiling charmingly, asked, “Now that you’ve captured me, what do you want?”
Ji Yunwei looked at him coldly. “Yank out your tendons and dig out your bones. Skin you and eat your flesh.”
But the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox blinked at him. “Everyone says that one day spent as husband and wife creates an enduring love of at least a hundred days. You and I have been husband and wife so many times. You have my scent on your body, and I also have your scent on mine. Are you really willing to treat me like this?”
Ji Yunwei was enraged by these words. He grabbed a fistful of the fox’s hair in his hands and forced him to raise his head. He ground out through gnashed his teeth, “You’d better not provoke me. I don’t kill demonic beasts, but that doesn’t mean I won’t ever kill demonic beasts!”
A trace of astonishment flashed through the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s eyes but soon disappeared.
“This rope won’t hold me for long.” The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox curled his lips enchantingly and used rubbed against Ji Yunwei’s calf with his jade-white foot. “If you want to do something to me, you should hurry and do it now, or else when I run away, you will never have a chance again.”
Waves of wild horses galloped through Ji Yunwei’s heart. Indeed, he had originally intended for this Nine-Tailed Divine Fox to feel the same humiliation and disgrace that he had felt, but he changed his mind right now — this fox had no shame. If he really screwed him, wouldn’t that just be letting the fox get what he wanted?
Ji Yunwei narrowed his eyes. “I won’t touch you. But, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of a forbidden art in the families of beast tamers that can make trapped demonic beasts lose their intelligence and live like animals?”
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox’s body suddenly stiffened. He tried to retreat back a little. “You shouldn’t have coincidentally learned it? This is a forbidden art. You’re a Young Master, you shouldn’t have learned it.”
Ji Yunwei explained, “It’s exactly because I am the Ji family’s Young Master that I learned this kind of forbidden arts from an early age. I really can’t use proper methods to deal with vulgar demonic beasts like you.”
Only then did the Nine-Tailed Divine Fox become panicked. He struggled to free himself from the rope, but that Demon Binding Rope only tightened further the more he struggled and even prevented him from putting any of his cultivation to use. The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox kept on cursing what a terrible and scary craftsman actually came up with this magic treasure while uneasily worrying at the same time that Ji Yunwei really would know that art.
“I won’t trouble you anymore in the future.” The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox suddenly cried pitifully. “I swear, I won’t trouble you anymore!”
Ji Yunwei said coldly, “Too late.”
The Nine-Tailed Divine Fox said, “You humans are so laughable, you can only make all kinds of traps to catch me but won’t allow me to bully you guys. You humans really aren’t anything good.”
