The teenager in green coldly harrumphed and could not seem to care. A
mocking smile flashed across her face as though that other teenager had
said something utterly stupid. “Finally experienced the pain of having
your soul roaming? What about Wuhen? She has been pinned under Mount Qimo
for ten million years! Have you considered how she felt? If it weren’t
for you, would she be trapped there? Do you want history to repeat itself
and return to the celestial realm? Fat hope!”
The teenager in white seemed a little saddened, and her delicate eyebrows
curled up. She was about to speak but decided against it and bitterly
smiled. “Do you think I want to repeat that calamity for the want of
returning to the celestial realm?”
“Otherwise, why? Your body is utterly wrecked, and this body of clay of
yours would inconvenience you, no?” The teenager in green coldly
laughed. “Besides, there is simply no way you can leave Leah. Once you
do so, Hades and the demonic realms will come after you. You must be
perplexed at how your body is always wrecked. That was your own undoing,
and you deserve it.”
The teenager in white had a calm look on her face and was not shaken.
When the teenager in green reached out with her claws against Ye Hailan,
she blocked them and her face became a lot more solemn. There were hints
of anger on her face. “Nishang, don’t you dare go overboard.”
“There are many things that you do not know. You have changed
everybody’s fate by being such a wanton obstacle,” the teenager in
white slowly said. “When you reincarnate someday, I shall wantonly
hinder you whenever possible. How would you feel?”
“Since I am in good shape, why should I endure this agony of
reincarnation?” The teenager in green coldly laughed. “How many have
you deceived with this merciful facade of yours? Even the loveless Jun
Wuhen was even deceived by you, not to mention how the loveless Leah is
complicit to your schemes. Hailan, you really disgust me.”
“Since that is the case, leave! Let her live a good life and I will
remain forever in the ethereal realm until she reins in the Lotus Palace
following her tribulations. If she fails to make it through the
tribulations, she will never be able to return and I will be perpetually
damned within the ethereal realm. Seeing no evil is the better policy.”
The teenager in white gently smiled, but her delicate brows carried a few
hints of mockery and harshness.
Even as she stood quietly, she had an arrogance that looked down on all
creation along with a holiness that could not be desecrated.
The lady in green hated how she was so above-all. As goddesses, her
coming out tops left her extremely indignant.
“Do you think that I am enough of a fool?! Will Leah allow you to
remain in the ethereal realm forever?” The teenager in green coldly
laughed with a slight mockery. One could tell that she had an extremely
deep-seated hatred towards her.
The young kid listened on to their conversation in shock. The spiritual
realm, the demonic realm, Hades… These were terms that would only
appear in fairy tales. Who were they? They, by virtue of their looks, did
not seem like people of this realm. Could they be… fairies?
Hailan… Her name was Hailan too! All that talk of reincarnation… Was
she his sister?
The young kid was stunned and he knew that this could not be anything
good. When one knew too much, they should leave. But, as he looked at
that innocent Hailan, he couldn’t take that step forward.
Whoever they were, his sister was lying in there and that b**** called
Nishang wanted to take her life.
“Nishang, you are the lord over the seasons and should know that you
cannot turn back time. The same goes for the fate of men. You have
privately overstepped your boundaries once too often, and I would have
been able to reincarnate in the first world if it weren’t for your
machinations instead of reincarnating thousands of years later,” Hailan
solemnly replied. “Leah knows everything that you have done, and your
guilt, should she pursue it, will not be something you could sniff at. A
thousand years of imprisonment awaits you if you get away with all that
lightly, or you lose your position in the spiritual realm if you are
severely punished. Why take the risk?! You’ve been picking on me, and
you have lost more than once or twice. Why take me on from the onset once
“What do you mean?” Nishang frowned. Hmmph! How could she lose to
her? She would never lose to Hailan had it not been for her stealing her
love from him. All of Wuhen would have never belonged to her.
Little did anybody expect everything to be a conspiracy. She gave up all
of him without due regard, and that was what she hated. She hated how
people could so easily get what she strove for dear life to get.
“There is only one soul and spirit in this body, and if she is
reincarnated, she only has one soul and spirit. Even I do not know where
the other souls are and whether the current me, or even the reborn me, is
the true Lotus Goddess. How about you take me on when my soul and spirit
“Hailan, how funny of you! Do you think that a reincarnated you, a mere
mortal, could locate your complete soul and spirit? Dream on!” The
teenager in green laughed as though she had heard an utterly preposterous
“That is none of your business.” Hailan’s smile had hints of a
sneer. It was so subtle that nobody could catch onto it.
The teenager in green looked at the crib with a malicious gaze. “A
person whose soul and spirit are not wholly intact will struggle with
growing up. To think they… Hmmph! Okay, then. I accede.”
“Thank you!” Hailan gently replied as though she long knew her
answer. Nishang was a goddess too and her heart was not evil. She had her
pride and was blinded by hatred.
“Why are you so insistent on being reincarnated, and into such a time?
You were originally destined for the Xichuan Continent,” Nishang asked.
“That is none of your business,” Hailan said.
“You…” Nishang was angry at how distant and uninvolved she seemed
to be. She gritted her teeth and wished she could simply take down that
vulnerable self before her.
Hailan looked at Little Hailan who lay in bed, and pity came over her.
“If it weren’t for your private meddling, she needed not to endure
“You have got a bone to pick with me?”
“No, but I want to tell you that the spirits and men should keep a
healthy distance from each other. Unless I really have to, I will not
interfere with her life. Even the slightest mistakes on your part can
change everything. The same goes for you too. You should not interfere.”
“What exactly are you trying to say?” Nishang coldly laughed in her
Hailam looked at her. “You must promise me that you won’t meddle in
her life and her fate. How can I be certain that you won’t suddenly
regret someday and go after her life again? You must let her grow up in
peace until the end of her tribulations.”
“Hmmph! What if she dies in the midst of her tribulations?”
“That is my business to worry about. It’s none of your concern,”
Hailan calmly replied.
“Very well, then. I…”
“You will swear in the name of the moon goddess!”
“Hailan, don’t you dare go overboard!” Nishang was enraged.
Nishang, who was the goddess of seasons, was subservient to the moon
goddess. It was through swearing in the name of the moon goddess that
Nishang could be kept in check as she would lose her right to serve the
moon goddess and be punished should she break her oath.
“Since you will not break your oath, what’s wrong with swearing by
the name of the moon goddess?” Hailan smiled, her delicate features
showing slight happiness. While it was subtle, Nishang caught hold of it.
As she was about to fly into a rage, she thought about it and endured it.
“The goddess of seasons, in the name of the moon goddess, swears that
she will not meddle with Ye Hailan’s fate.”
“Very well, then!” Hailan smiled. “It’s your time to return.”
Hailan reminded her.
“Hmmph!” Nishang looked at Little Hailan coldly and thumped her feet
before disappearing. The young kid was awestruck. He finally believed
that there were indeed ghosts and spirits in the world. They were real
Hailan stood before Little Hailan’s bed and flipped her wrists. She
fell silent for a moment before a white lotus appeared in her palm and
drifted away from it. The white lotus slowly landed between Little
A warm light bathed Little Hailan, and her body that was in extreme pain
became more comfortable. As though she were bathed in spring, her ECG
readings started to become normal.
Hailan took off Little Hailan’s oxygen mask, and the young kid was in
shock but did not dare to say anything because he knew that she would not
harm his little sister.
A gentle white light covered Little Hailan and became a huge white lotus.
The entire ward lit up and it was dazzling. A huge gold pearl came out
from Hailan’s mouth and slowly entered Little Hailan’s mouth.
The white light gradually disappeared and Hailan put on the oxygen mask
for Little Hailan. She turned around and disappeared from the ward.
The young kid was awestruck and kneaded his eyes. The ward then fell
silent as though nothing had happened. If it weren’t for him witnessing
it, he would have thought that these were hallucinations stemming from
He recalled his daddy telling him that he should not believe in ghosts
and spirits. So ghosts and spirits were real! The young kid was flustered
as to why he did not grab hold of her and ask her where Nuo Nuo was.
Perhaps she would know a thing or two, but the opportunity had lapsed.
It was utterly unbelievable!
“Ning Ning!” Ning Ning yelped in shock when he felt somebody tap his
shoulder. “Why are you this scared stiff?” Third Young Master Ye
looked at him quizzically.
“Daddy, could you walk with that bit more noise in the dead of night,
please? You will scare the daylights out of people.” The young kid
showed his unhappiness. He was indeed scared out of his wits. He was
wondering whether Nuo Nuo’s spirit was around him but he could not see
it. To think that he would be tapped on the shoulder like this,
wouldn’t it be utterly frightening?
Third Young Master Ye shook his head. “I called you several times, but
you seemed to be extremely deep in thought to the point you couldn’t
hear me call you.”
“Ah, I was thinking about something,” The young kid was much more
relieved since he knew that Little Hailan would be fine. Tiredness came
over him. He thought about it and decided not to tell Third Young Master
Ye about Hailan.
Even if he did, he might not believe it. So be it then. If he didn’t
say it, he could have been dreaming about it all along.
People, for millennia, had never seen such fantastic things.
“How is your sister?”
“Daddy, look, she seems to be normal,” the young kid pointed to the
instrument and said. Third Young Master Ye was taken aback and became
ecstatic. “Quickly call Bai Ye over to see if things have improved.”
By the time the young kid ran to call Su Man and Bai Ye, Little Hailan
had already awoken. She was extremely uncomfortable wearing the oxygen
mask and wanted to remove it. As she moved her hands, the needle jabbed
her even more painfully and Little Hailan winced as she gritted her
teeth. When she saw Third Young Master Ye at the window, she shook her
head, frowning to show her discomfort.
Third Young Master Ye hurried over to open the door, and Little Hailan,
in her distraction, was bleeding from the needle jabbing the back of her
hand. Third Young Master Ye’s heart ached as he saw Hailan struggling
in pain. He then tried to remove the oxygen mask.
“Darling, stop moving. You’re bleeding.” Third Young Master Ye
gently reminded Hailan and could not help but reach out to stroke Little
Hailan’s forehead. Her fever had subsided, and her eyes became
especially clear and bright.
It was as though she had recovered after a nap and one could not tell
that she was in critical condition at all. Third Young Master Ye’s
nervous heart then relaxed.
“Daddy, did I fall asleep for a long time?” Ye Hailan asked as she
looked around in a daze.
“Hmm, for almost four days,” Third Young Master Ye said.
“That explains it.”
“Hailan, are you uncomfortable anywhere?” Third Young Master Ye asked
in concern, ready to put the oxygen mask back on her anytime. Ye Hailan
shook her head and said, “I am okay. I am fine. Didn’t I recover?”
“This…” Third Young Master Ye did not know what to say. He then
wondered how a critical Hailan could have suddenly recovered.
“Mommy is too tired and is resting. Don’t worry. It’s particularly
late now. You will be able to see Mommy tomorrow.” Third Young Master
Ye did not want to pressurize his daughter and just left it at how tired
Cheng Anya was.
Ye Hailan nodded. “Daddy, could you remove these tubes? I am really
“Are you uncomfortable again? Bai Ye will be here shortly. Really
“Not me. I am saying…”
Before Little Hailan could finish speaking, Bai Ye and Su Man hurried
over. Third Young Master Ye beckoned them over to check on Hailan. “She
is uncomfortable again.”
The young kid raised his eyebrows. Bai Ye already felt that Little Hailan
waking up was a miracle in itself, let alone how attentive she looked. It
was so amazing, and he was wondering whether she would make it past
Su Man felt as such too. As long as the two of them felt the same way,
there was definitely no hope.
But she suddenly recovered, and that was really a miracle.
Bai Ye and Su Man did a detailed checkup for her, and the parameters
displayed on the machine were normal. Both of them were amazed and looked
at each other. It was rare for both medical experts to have that aghast
look on their faces.
The young kid smiled at his sister from the side and scooted up to her
while he teased her. So her sister was actually the goddess incarnate! It
was not known whether she remembered that the goddess was also called
Hailan. She must have remembered. He would secretly ask her in the future.
For all one knew, she could help him find Nuo Nuo. Hope rose in the young
“Brother, the tubes. They are very uncomfortable.” Little Hailan
pouted. The young kid asked Bai Ye, and Bai Ye thought for a moment
before removing all the needles in Little Hailan. “Is she alright?”
Third Young Master Ye asked hurriedly.
Su Man nodded. “While I do not know why, she is indeed okay.”
Third Young Master Ye was ecstatic. If Cheng Anya heard this news, she
would quickly recover.
Su Man had Little Hailan transferred to another ward that was adjacent to
Cheng Anya’s ward. The young kid watched over her while Third Young
Master Ye went over to accompany Cheng Anya. Su Man and Bai Ye looked at
Hailan, perplexed. They could only attribute all these to Hailan’s
special constitution and the instability of the virus.
If they did not, they had no other way out to explain all these.
Nevertheless, she was finally fine and their effort was worth it. As it
was too late in the night, they could not return and thus went to Su
Man’s office on the top floor. There was a suite in it, and Bai Ye
slumped onto the bed, asleep before he could wash his face.
Su Man came out of the bathroom after washing his face. Just as he was
about to call Bai Ye to wash his face and hands, he realized that Bai Ye
had already fallen asleep.
Su Man thought about it and returned to the bathroom. He prepared a warm
towel and wiped his hands with it. If there were a mirror, he would be
able to see how serious and meticulous his tired face was. As the two of
them had just stepped out of the laboratory, they had many viruses on
their hands. Su Man thought for a moment before removing his jacket. He
then thought about it some more and removed his shoes before adjusting
his sleeping posture and covering him with a blanket.
He looked around and saw that the sofa was too small to fit his svelte
figure. Beauty Su pondered before the bed as to whether he should boot
him off or squeeze on the bed with him. He had never shared a bed with
He had been missing out on sleep for days and was extremely fatigued. The
bed was not particularly big, and two grown men squeezing on it felt
Beauty Su felt a little conflicted and pondered about it seriously for a
minute. Once he was certain that there was minimal danger, he also took
off his jacket and went onto the bed. There was only a blanket in the
room, and he had no choice but to share the blanket with Bai Ye.
Having a hunk sleeping next to him, Beauty Su felt a little nervous and
took a while to fall asleep. Bai Ye, who happened to be sleeping on his
side, was looking at him. Beauty Su could not help but take a few more
glances at him.
He gave people the impression that he was beautifully handsome and
easy-going. Him asleep gave people the impression that he was an upright
gentleman. Su Man wondered how a man who could have done all sorts of
things in the criminal underworld, how somebody whose schemes ran fathoms
deep, could leave people with the impression that he was a gentleman for
so many years. He, by virtue of his character, was not quite the
gentleman people made him out to be.
It was three in the morning, extremely late into the night. He was tired
but could not fall asleep.
All of a sudden, an arm reached over and lay on his chest. Su Man felt
his heart beat when he saw Bai Ye scoot over and tightly hug him.
F***! What kind of sleep fetish was that?
Beauty Su gently pushed his hands away and placed them somewhere. It was
not too long later when Bai Ye’s hands reached over and hugged him
tightly. Bai Ye, as though he was hugging him like some toy, had his long
legs reached across and over him.
Su Man felt his heart jolt. If he weren’t really asleep, he would have
thought that he was deliberate. Just as he was about to remove Bai Ye’s
hands, Bai Ye held him tighter and grunted in dissatisfaction.
Since he did not quite make out anything clearly, Su Man decided to
simply leave him as he was and hug him.
It was just too damn warm.
It was as though there was a fire burning in him and Su Man hesitated. He
might as well just sleep on the sofa.
Just as he was about to get up, Bai Ye forced his chest down and pinned
him down. His other arm, in seeming discomfort, ran down his neck while
his other hand held him by the waist. He actually allowed him to rest his
head on his shoulder!
Su Man felt his heart sink. He was in such a posture, and boy was he no
He felt a wave of anger arise in him and was about to kick Bai Ye off the
bed. He, after some thought, decided against it and bore with it.
