The ghost shook her head in determination. “I won’t let things go her way even if I’m gone for good.”
“You hate her so much?” Gu Bailu smiled with interest.
“You have no idea. It doesn’t matter that I’m dead, but I can’t let her ruin my family…” The ghost looked at Gu Bailu and said, “Your spirit root is broken.”
Gu Bailu nodded her head. “I don’t need a spirit root to capture you.”
The ghost was excited. “I can help fix your spirit root as long as you help me.”
Gu Bailu raised an eyebrow. “Okay… So you want to make a deal with me.”
“The spirit fruit that can fix your spirit root belongs to the Murong family, but that traitor claimed it for herself. However, she can’t open the box, because I’m the only one who knows how to.”
A fruit that could fix a spirit root?
Although Gu Bailu didn’t care much about spiritual power, it certainly was a valuable thing that everybody wanted.
Gu Bailu smiled. “That’s a fair deal. What do you want?”
It wasn’t the first time she had made a deal with a ghost.
Ghosts actually couldn’t do much although everybody was scared of them. They couldn’t kill their enemies, and could only seize good opportunities to scare them.
Thus, in order to persuade ghosts to leave and reincarnate, soul captivators would help them address their issues. It was a win-win situation for everybody.
The ghost whispered something to her, and Gu Bailu nodded. “Alright, you may come in.”
Her bracelet flew out and changed into a silver bag.
Gu Bailu calmed her thoughts before casting a spell. Then, the bag absorbed the ghost like a dust collector.
Gu Bailu grabbed the bag and rubbed it, turning it into a bracelet again.
This was the Soul Collecting Bracelet that had come to this world with her.
Having obtained something so quickly, Gu Bailu smiled in satisfaction and disappeared into the dark night.
The next day, Gu Bailu didn’t get up until the sun was high in the sky. She led Ah Luo downstairs for food.
1At that moment, the lobby was full of people.
A young man was speaking, and everybody else listened carefully.
“Many more women have died. After they were carried from Prince Zi’s house to the mortuary, Old Li counted them. There were a dozen bodies.”
3“It’s been a long time since Prince Zi looked for women. Why is this happening?”
“When the second prince got married yesterday, a woman touched Prince Zi and didn’t die. Prince Zi thought that his misogyny had been cured, and looked for another batch of women. However, his condition hasn’t improved, after all, and those women came to a tragic end.”
“Prince Zi is so pitiful. He’s so cute and yet he can’t touch a woman. Is he going to be like this for the rest of his life?”
4Gu Bailu’s heart became heavy. So many people died, and all they cared about was Feng Qingtian’s happiness.
3She sat at a neighboring table. “Why do you pity Prince Zi? He hates women and destroys so many lives. He doesn’t deserve happiness.”
Everybody looked at her angrily.
“How can you blame Prince Zi? The imperial doctor said that it’s a disease, and he has never hidden it. Those women wouldn’t have died if they hadn’t tried to approach him.”
“That’s right. They knew they would die when they approached Prince Zi, but they all wanted to be the exception. Whose fault is that?”
1“Hehe. Some women get themselves killed voluntarily every time.”
Gu Bailu was lost for words. Human lives were worth so little in this barbaric world.
However, she was rather relieved. Since they had gone to Prince Zi voluntarily, it had nothing to do with her.
“However, fewer women have been doing that in recent years. If that woman hadn’t survived Prince Zi yesterday, they wouldn’t have been so stupid.”
Why was it still related to her?
It was dangerous to challenge the world boss! Don’t try it at home!
