Pei Yunshu calmly averted his gaze from Zouyu, waiting for the Demon Ghost Market to open.

It was only after the market had opened that Pei Yunshu understood why Huayue held it in such high regard.

Navigating through the crowd, he felt like he had too few pairs of eyes. When he looked left, he couldn’t see the right, and with all the unusual sights surrounding him, he couldn’t see the sky while looking at the ground.

He had no time to pay attention to the path, but fortunately, Zhuyou was holding his hand, and Pei Yunshu focused on everything around him while following Zhuyou forward.

In the Demon Ghost Market, accommodations were naturally paid for with spirit stones. All the inns were packed to capacity, and after searching, they found an inn with only two rooms left.

In his heart, Pei Yunshu apologized to Huayue, for he had taken a room all to himself. 

His current situation was not suitable for sharing a room with others.

After entering the room, Pei Yunshu closed the doors and windows tightly and set up a protective barrier. Once everything was in order, he removed his mask and sat down at the table to rest.

After drinking a cup of tea, he raised it to his nose for a light sniff, relieved to find that there was no scent.

The Demon Ghost Market was vast, and the inns were exceptionally large. Pei Yunshu surveyed the room and discovered a small hot spring behind a screen.

The hot spring was still emitting steam, and as he looked at it, he couldn’t help but want to take a bath. He summoned the Qingyue Sword to the side, took off his clothes, and placed them on the screen. Then, with great caution, he stepped into the hot spring.

After walking for a while, finally in such a comfortable place, the temperature of the pool water was just right. Pei Yunshu laid down on his hands and drifted off to sleep by the pool.


When he woke up, even before opening his eyes, he was greeted by a strong fragrance. 

This scent seemed to penetrate his bones, making him terribly thirsty with just one whiff. Struggling to open his eyes, Pei Yunshu saw the room filled with mist, and he was lying on his arms. The scent had seemingly permeated his flesh and skin.

The entire room was filled with the rich fragrance. Pei Yunshu took deep breaths, thankful that he had closed the doors and windows tightly and set up multiple barriers to contain the scent within this room.

However, this made him feel even more uncomfortable.

Pei Yunshu tried to get up, but his limbs were powerless. A drunken, feverish sensation spread from his organs, making his breath scorching hot.

“…” Pei Yunshu grabbed the Qingyue Sword, and the sword carried him out of the pool. “Cough…”

So hot.

The indescribable fragrance filled the entire room, trapped in this space by the barriers he had set. The ground was cold, and as he put on his clothes, he could already feel himself panting.

The old abbot had once said that because the child gu was far from the mother gu, even if emotions arose, it could be suppressed with just a few Clear Heart Mantra.

Pei Yunshu had taken several Clear Heart Pills and was silently reciting the Clear Heart Mantra. However, just as he began to feel more sober, an even more intense sensation of heat surged up.

He couldn’t complete the mantra.

He pinched his own hand, and the pain caused a momentary blank in his mind.

How could such intense emotions be suppressed with just a few Clear Heart mantras? Did this mean that the owner of the mother gu was getting closer and closer to him?

Biting his lip until it bled and causing wounds in his palm, Pei Yunshu felt the air becoming thinner and was replaced by the almost suffocating fragrance permeating his lungs.

He was drenched in sweat, unsure if it was from exertion or the pool water. He gasped for air, but the scorching sensation seemed to burn him from within.

Seeing him in such a desperate state, the Qingyue Sword rushed toward the window, trying to open it.

“No…” Pei Yunshu exclaimed.

The sword stopped, but it was already too late. The window had been pushed open a tiny crack. It was so small that no air could come in, but the rich fragrance in the room rushed out through the gap like a flood.

Sweat dripped from Pei Yunshu’s forehead, and he desperately looked at the window, but his vision was gradually fading.

Oh no…


Zhuyou sniffed the air, and the markings on his face suddenly appeared. In the next moment, he disappeared.

Seeing him react this way, Huayue, who was cautiously flipping through erotic paintings, raised an eyebrow. “Master Zhuyou?”

But not long after, his nose caught a faint, delicate fragrance.

Unable to resist, Huayue closed his eyes and focused entirely on capturing the scent that seemed about to vanish. He followed the scent out of the room, and many other creatures with keen senses of smell had also come out into the corridor.

It wasn’t until he bumped into a creature with horns on its head that Huayue snapped out of his trance.

His expression was one of horror.

Wasn’t this, wasn’t this the scent that was on Beauty Yunshu’s body?!


So uncomfortable.

So hot.

A hand touched him, and Pei Yunshu pushed that hand away weakly. He muttered, “Don’t.”

A cold wind blew against his cheeks, dispersing the dense fragrance, making the scorching feeling even more pronounced.

The moonlight was dim under the tree branches. There was a “splash” as someone fell into a pool of cold water.

Clear Heart Mantra, Pei Yunshu tried to recite it hazily, but as soon as he opened his mouth, the cold water rushed in.

The snake tongue followed the water, taking away Pei Yunshu’s ability to speak, numbing his tongue.


Pei Yunshu grabbed the person’s neck in the water, his face contorted in pain. In a daze, he opened his eyes.

He saw the enchanting markings as vivid as blood and a pair of vertical pupils.


In the middle of the night, in the wilderness.

Pei Yunshu used a spell to remove the moisture from his body. After taking care of himself, he turned around to look at the person still soaking in the water.

Zhuyou’s tail swayed in the water, and there was a tiny wound on his lips, which Pei Yunshu had bitten.

Pei Yunshu didn’t know what to say anymore. He muttered, “….Let’s go back.”

Finding the ghost doctor was urgent. This time, it had become even more severe. Did this mean that Yuncheng was getting closer to him?

Fortunately, the cold water had some effect.

Pei Yunshu was lost in thought, trying to forget what he had just done with Zhuyou in the water.

Zhuyou got up from the water, and Pei Yunshu quickly turned away, enduring for a while before asking, “Where are your clothes?”

The flood dragon raised an eyebrow and reached into the water. After a while, the tattered clothes that had been torn to pieces in the water flew into his hand.

In his excitement, Zhuyou had torn his clothes apart with his tail.

Pei Yunshu took out a set of clothes from his storage pouch and handed them to him. After Zhuyou put them on, Pei Yunshu put on the ghost mask and walked with him back to the inn.

Outside the inn, Huayue, who had been waiting, saw them approaching. His eyes lit up, and he hurried over, carefully examining the masked Pei Yunshu. He whispered, “Beauty, are you alright?”

The ugly demon with black and white markings shook his head. “I’m fine.”

Huayue’s nose was particularly sensitive in such matters, especially for this fox, who had smelled the scents of countless beautiful people. With just one sniff, he could tell that the Beauty and Lord Zhuyou hadn’t done what he had imagined.

Huayue felt a sudden lightness in his heart and tiptoed a few steps, then turned happily in a circle. He smiled, his eyes like blooming peach blossoms, shimmering. “Beauty, I also smelled a hint of fragrance just now, luckily it was faint, and many others smelled it too, but the scent disappeared halfway, and they don’t know where it came from.”

Pei Yunshu nodded and expressed his concern, “My room is still full of the fragrance.”

He had no idea when it would dissipate.

Huayue thought for a moment. “Don’t worry, Beauty, I’ll try to figure out a way to seal the scent from that room into the Fox Demon’s Secret Realm.”

The three of them entered the inn. The inn was brightly lit, even though it was late at night, and there were quite a few awake people. Pei Yunshu walked past the group of demons with his head lowered, relieved when they didn’t react.

The pond water had washed away the fragrance on his body, and he couldn’t smell it anymore at the moment. These demons shouldn’t have smelled it either.

Today, Pei Yunshu could smell the fragrance, but on that day when Zhuyou and Huayue smelled the fragrance on him, he clearly hadn’t smelled anything.

Could it be that the closer they were or the longer they spent with him, the more they would smell this scent?

Pei Yunshu was lost in thought, and as he climbed the stairs, he saw Huayue in front of him suddenly stop. He looked up and saw a group of demon cultivators coming down the stairs.

They wore black clothes with a golden peony embroidered on their chests. The person at the front was none other than Zouyu.

Zouyu appeared cold, a whip coiled around his waist, and his brows held a hint of Western Regions’ style. He didn’t seem to be in a good mood.

Huayue only paused briefly before continuing up the stairs.

Pei Yunshu’s expression remained unchanged. Whatever turbulence there might be, it was completely concealed by his disguise. He simply reached back and held Zhuyou’s hand, leading him past this group of demon cultivators.

As one group went down and the other went up, they passed each other without incident. However, one of Zouyu’s subordinates suddenly turned around and asked Huayue, “Since you all are staying on this floor, do you know anything about the fragrance we just smelled?”

Huayue replied, “We haven’t even reached our room yet. How would we know about any fragrance?”

Zouyu raised his deep eyes and looked at them. After hearing Huayue’s response, he squinted his eyes, then pointed to Pei Yunshu and asked, “What about you? Where have you guys been just now?”

The black and white ugly ghost didn’t catch the attention of the demon cultivators at all. Pei Yunshu lowered his voice and replied hoarsely, “The Demon Ghost Market is as bright as day at night, and we got dizzy from all the sights.”

The demon cultivators burst into laughter. Zouyu turned away with his subordinates and started walking downstairs. However, before he had taken a few steps, a golden rope suddenly shot out from his body. The golden celestial binding rope automatically headed in Pei Yunshu’s direction. Pei Yunshu quickly dodged, and the rope hit the wooden pillar behind him with a loud thud.

Zouyu, who had already descended the stairs, stopped in his tracks. He turned around and looked at his celestial binding rope, then glanced at Pei Yunshu with a probing and fiery gaze.

“Who are you?” He asked, “I haven’t seen you before. But my mischievous celestial binding rope seems to recognize you.”
