The Former Wife of Invisible Wealthy Man - Chapter 133.3: The Antagonist (3)
Chapter 133: The Antagonist (3)
Curator Xia pointed to the door and anxiously said: “I had already locked the door during closing time, but when I got here, I found the door was actually open.”
The old master looked at the lock on the ground and smiled: “It’s okay, it’s just a ghost mischievousness.”
The old master looked at Curator Xia: “You go back home , my apprentice and I will solve this matter.” If there were real ghosts inside and curator Xia was present, it would be more troublesome.
After Curator Xia left, the old master and Master Zhu opened the door and walked in. It was a silent spring night, there were no stars and no moons, the clouds were dark and dim, and at a glance there was only layers of black.
While walking, Master Zhu paid close attention to any movement around him. On the way, many ghosts saw them with fear on their faces and fled one after another.
The temperature suddenly dropped, and the already gloomy weather became even more colder. Master Zhu frowned: “Master, when I came here earlier, I didn’t see so many ghosts here.”
The old master kept walking without paying the other ghosts much attention, “Perhaps because the ghost in the East Palace is too powerful.” he theorized.
The old master came here for the ghost in the East Palace. Even if he saw the other ghosts, he wouldn’t stay there, and went straight to the East Palace.
They almost reached the East Palace, and the more they went in, the colder they felt.
An eunuch ghost stood under a tree outside the East Palace. He saw the old master and knew that the old master would go against the general ghost.
The eunuch ghost was about to report, and let the general ghost and the others leave quickly. The eunuch ghost hadn’t moved yet, but the old master had already seen him, and raised his hand, throwing a charm towards the eunuch ghost.
The moment the charm touched the eunuch ghost, there was a fierce fire, and the eunuch ghost looked like he was in extreme pain. A short while later, the eunuch ghost disappeared.
Master Zhu hesitated: “Master, these ghosts don’t seem to harm anyone. They don’t have any aura of evil. It seems that there is no need to kill them.”
The old master was indifferent: “Have you forgotten what I told you before, as long as it is a ghost, it affect people’s hearts in a harmful way. Besides, he was about to report.”
“I would rather kill one by mistake than let one go.”
Master Zhu disagreed a bit, but didn’t say anything. A few steps into the East Palace, the old master suddenly frowned : “Something’s wrong.”
“There are more than just ghosts in the palace, it seems… there are people.”
Master Zhu was surprised, how could anyone be here at this time? She didn’t have time to think as the old master had already walked in.
Chen Shu and Ye Sui didn’t know about the uninvited guests here. At this moment, Ye Sui noticed that the ancient sword seemed a bit strange.
This sword originally didn’t move, but now it seemed to be trembling slightly. The blade shook and was flying the next second.
The general ghost noticed something was wrong. He looked outside the hall, his eyes were sharp, clear and extremely cold. The general ghost looked at Ye Sui and Chen Shu worriedly and mouthed.
“Be careful, there is someone outside the hall.”
Ye Sui was confused, who would come to the Xia Zhou Palace in the middle of the night? Could it be Curator Xia?
At this moment, an unfamiliar voice suddenly heard in the empty hall, full of breath, and came in leisurely: “It turns out that there are not only ghosts in the East Palace, but two people as well.”
Ye Sui and Chen Shu looked in the direction of the voice, and both of them were startled. How could it be Master Zhu?
Ye Sui asked: “Master Zhu, why are you here?” She had a bad feeling. Master Zhu’s profession was ghost hunter. What reason does she come here late at night for?
Master Zhu didn’t expect to see Ye Sui and Chen Shu here tonight. Didn’t curator Xia say it was closed? Master Zhu introduced: “This is my master.”
Master Zhu then whispered to the old master regarding Ye Sui and Chen Shu’s identity.
The old master looked at Ye Sui: “It turns out that Miss Ye Sui understands about ghosts and gods. Even your husband knows a little bit about it. The two of you being married was really unexpected.”
Ye Sui’s expression was pale: “I don’t dare to take your sentence, please speak cautiously.”
The old master looked at the two dark shadows behind Ye Sui. These two ghosts had been hundreds years old, and they looked very vicious. The old master looked at the sword in the hand of the general ghost again.
That was the general sword that curator Xia had told him, it was very vicious. He could smell the blood on it from that far.
With a cold face, the old master suddenly picked up his sword and pointed it at the general ghost and the ghost minister: “Evil spirit, looks like they don’t want to die!”
Almost at the same second, both Ye Sui and Chen Shu stepped forward at the same time, blocking the old master: “Stop!”
Ye Sui held Chen Shu’s hand and signalled him to let her speak. Ye Sui looked at the old master: “They are merciful, they are not ghosts, they are just….”
“Ye Sui’s voice stopped, how should she say it? This old master seemed to be a bad person, and the past of Xia Zhou Dynasty should not be disclosed.
Ye Sui thought for a few seconds and said seriously: “They have never hurt anyone. They are still in this world because they still have some unfinished business. I will perform religious ceremonies to help their souls find peace. Please be patient.”
The old master stared at the general ghost: “How do I know that you are not lying to me?”
Ye Sui: “If you don’t believe me, you can look over me, I can promise you that they will go back into the reincarnation cycle.” The ghost minister and the general ghost had apologized to Chen Shu. They have already fulfilled their wish and obsession.”
The old master didn’t say a word, but his expression was scornful and he obviously wasn’t listening to Ye Sui.
Ye Sui’s attitude was already very good, however the old master was very stubborn.
Chen Shu’s eyes sank slightly, and his voice was extremely low and cold: “My wife said, she will help them get back to the afterlife, you don’t even have the patience, do you?”
