Believe It Or Not, I Already Caught You - Chapter 53
The formation of a Ghost King could only rely on devouring souls, so the formation of a Ghost King corresponded to the disappearance of countless souls. Even in the underworld with countless souls, there could only be one Ghost King among millions of Yin soldiers, not to mention in this world full of living people.
“His name is Qi Changming. Have you heard of this person, Master Mao?” Chen Yu asked.
“That Ghost King last night was sent by this Celestial Master named Qi Changming?” Lou Ming asked.
“Yeah, I have fought with him before and have seen this Ghost King,” Chen Yu nodded and replied.
“You have fought with him before?” Master Mao was surprised.
“Then were you okay that time?” Lou Ming thought of the Ghost King’s ferocity and couldn’t help but worry.
“I’m alright. At that time, he summoned the Ghost King through a ghost token. I smashed the ghost token into pieces with one foot and the Ghost King disappeared right after, so he didn’t hurt me.” Chen Yu huffed: “I can’t believe he’s so petty. He couldn’t beat me, so he went so far as to summon a Ghost King to assassinate me afterwards.”
“Master Mao, have you ever heard of this person?” Lou Ming’s impression of this Qi Changming plummeted nethermost.
“I’ve never heard of him.” Master Mao shook his head and said, “But nowadays, there are few sects that still use the Soul Refining Formation to refine malevolent ghosts, not to mention refining a Ghost King. I’ll go back and ask someone to further investigate. There should be news soon.”
“Master Mao, can you please do me a favor?” Chen Yu suddenly looked at Master Mao.
“Little Friend Chen, do say,” Master Mao was a little curious about what Chen Yu would ask of him.
“Here’s the thing. That Qi Changming is bad. I’m not afraid of him, but I’m afraid he will do something against my family, so…” Chen Yu said, “Master Mao, I don’t want any money for those jades, but can you send me three pieces of amulets?”
“What jade? What money?” Master Mao felt that he couldn’t understand a word.
“Oh, that one. Didn’t you say that the jades which Assistant Tian brought back the other day were particularly suitable for amulets?” Lou Ming hurriedly picked up the conversation.
“Yeah! That’s the one.” Chen Yu nodded in agreement at the side.
Master Mao blinked, and after adding and subtracting the two’s meanings, he finally comprehended: “You want me to use those dead jades and help you make a few amulets?”
“En.” Chen Yu immediately nodded happily, while Lou Ming let out a long sigh of relief.
Master Mao always felt that something was wrong, but in the end, he did not refuse.
When Chen Yu left home, her phone was forgotten in her room. Chen Yu, without her phone, always felt uneasy, so she stayed for a short while before getting up and leaving, intending to go back and secretly fetch her phone, and then go back to school.
Lou Ming watched Chen Yu leave, and then met Master Mao’s probing gaze.
Lou Ming pondered for a moment and admitted particularly dryly, “I do care about her.”
“No more denial?” Master Mao was instead a little surprised.
“I can’t hide it from you anyway,” Lou Ming replied with a bitter smile.
“Although Little Friend Chen is not afraid of your evil spirit, the gap between you is too much. On age alone…”
“Master Mao, you’re overthinking it. I have no intention of doing anything,” Lou Ming said with a smile, “I just care about her, and I want to protect her.”
