Chapter 31

announcement: you may have noticed that I’ve been disappearing sometimes for a couple days, so I’ve got some good news and bad news, good news is that Xixi got onto the provincial karate team!! yay! Bad news is that Xixi has 5 days of practice now on most weeks, boooo. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can keep up with the everyday releases anymore, especially with school *stares agressively at Chem binder* and if my grades drop even a percentage, i may be disowned by the demons in my household. I will still try to release whenever I can, but I’m really sorry I can’t do everyday releases anymore, but mass release this friday and next friday, no school! I will try to make up for the lack of releases whenever I have a day off.

also here’s something to pray for: xixi’s reports card comes out next week and its parent teacher conference, please pray that xixi successfully hides her report card from her parents

The doors and windows of the houses in Kenisi Manor all had high quality sound proofing, but the voice of the knocker had seemed like it was being spoken into one’s ear; the only way it could be logically explained would be… … This person probably had a very high internal force.

Out of all the people Mo Zhen knew, the only person who would have such a high internal force, unfortunately- it was his master.

But what did he just say? If he did not open the door, he would find a way to get in?

Since he can come in on his own, why should he go down to open the door?

Mo Zhen felt that his answer was quite reasonable, and then with his mind at peace, he laid down and continued to sleep..

The Master At the Door: “…”

Ah Yao had lived in Mo Zhen’s home for a very long time, but it was the first time she had ever encountered someone other than Tang Qiang standing outside of one’s door. Wandering and drifting around the living for a couple laps, Ah Yao finally decided to go up to the second floor.

“Zhen Zhen Zhen Zhen, is it Master who came?!” Ah Yao lifted the quilt that was covering a figure abruptly; but what made it different from the past was that the weather had recently gotten very cold, Mo Zhen shivered as he was drowsily awakened from his sleep yet again.

Putting the quilt back onto his body, Mo Zhen opened his eyes to glance at Ah Yao, “I know, you help him open the door, I’ll immediately go down.”

“Me?” Ah Yao clasped her hands behind her back, and squirmed around, “It can’t be that Master is directly accepting me?”

“No, but if you do not open the door for him soon, I’m not sure what he will end up doing to it.”

Ah Yao: “…”

The wind breezed through as she disappeared quickly.

Since Ah Yao was a ghost, when she encountered the obstacle of the door, she usually directly magically went through it, so the process of opening a door was something that she had very little skill in.

Carefully studying Mo Zhen’s door, Ah Yao nodded understandingly. “Sesame open!”

The door opened.

Master at the door: “…”

He suddenly felt the wind blow strongly through the door, making his hair a little messy.

When Ah Yao at the door had finally seen the person standing there, she was subconsciously frozen in place, stunned.

She had not seen the Master before and did not know what Master had looked like in the slightest. But even if Master was not like the ones on TV with the long hair and fluttering robe- fairy wind bone dust and refined, he should not be….. The *Huanxing type?

(TN: Huanxing is a fashion brand, related to Happy Camp, it’s fashion targeted to youth and represents happy, xixi has lived in North America most of her life, therefore Chinese fashion, well it’s a whole different world)

Wearing a wine red shirt and a grey tie, with a black suit and trousers and a pair of black shiny leather shoes on his feet, this elegant aristocratic temperament even if he were to immediately go to an high-society gathering, he would not appear to be out of place.

Let alone the intense half-squinting eyes beneath his black bangs, could just simply strike the hearts of all the young ladies at the dance!

Wait wait wait wait, this person was really Master? But he looked around the same age as Zhen Zhen!

“Are you satisfied with what you see?” The corners of Master’s mouth rose, his low magnetic voice was filled with a hint of amusement.

Ah Yao: “…”

Master, I think you’ve gone into the wrong studio.

Wind replaced her as Ah Yao disappeared yet again.

“Zhen Zhen Zhen, the person at the door does not seem to be Master, he looks like a swindler!”

Mo Zhen was pulling up his pants when Ah Yao broke into his room, after pausing for a second, he gently pulled the zipper, “Then it should be Master no doubt.”

Ah Yao: “…”

She looked at Mo Zhen who had just put on his pants and shamefully covered her face.

She was only a little late, really it was too shameful.

Mo Zhen simply washed for a bit and went to the first floor. Ah Yao drifted behind him as she followed, curious and wanting to ask about Master, “Zhen Zhen, what is Master’s name? He looks so handsome, why didn’t you tell me this sooner!”

Mo: “…”

“Master, he is so young, how old is he?”

Mo: “…”

“Master He …”

“Master, he did not come for a blind date with you,” Mo Zhen said before she could finish her question, “And he is my master, not your master, do not carelessly yell that out loud.”

Ah Yao: “…”

Humph! Really stingy!

When Ah Yao had finally gone downstairs with Mo Zhen, Master had already poured himself a cup of coffee and was currently sitting gracefully on the living room sofa.

Mo Zhen’s mouth twitched as he stepped down from the final stair. “Master, you really do not treat it as if it’s someone else’s home.”

Master picked up the white mug on the table and sipped a small mouthful of coffee. “You already know, wherever I go, everywhere is like home.”

Mo: “…”

“But your little ghost girl is very cute, no wonder you can’t let go of her.”

Master finished this sentence and the atmosphere in the living room soon fell into a strange quiet.

Mo Zhen’s face changed colour a few times, if he really did say that he did not want to let her go, would it not seem as if he had the desire to hide her away?

“Teacher, Master, you are also very handsome~” Ah Yao shyly said.

Mo: “…”

So she was only concerned with the first half of his sentence!

But speaking of Master’s appearance, when Mo Zhen had met him for the first time in grade 2, he also looked like this. Over the past few years, Mo Zhen’s grandmother had already passed away, but the master’s appearance did not even have the slightest change.

He really was an a thousand year old monster.

How was he handsome ah?!

“I am the master of Mo Zhen, my current name is Chang Xin.” Master stood up from the couch and laughingly, he smiled at Ah Yao.

Ah Yao immediately tensed and straightened up, greeting with a military salute, she introduced herself, “Master Hello! My name is Ah Yao!”

Master raised his eyebrows as he turned to look at Mo Zhen, “Were you the one who gave her this name?”

“uh … en.” Mo Zhen’s eyes flashed a bit and avoided Master’s stare.

Master bit his lip but did not say anything.

Seeing that he was silent, Ah Yao did not dare to continue the conversation. The living room was quiet for a little while. Master turned his head and looked at Ah Yao as he said: “You did not die, you know?”

When Master stated this, he  had a particularly calm and indifferent tone. It was as if he were saying,’Today is Wednesday, you know?’

But in Ah Yao’s mind, this sentence was as important as a court’s final ruling.

Stunned and frozen in place for a while, Ah Yao slowly raised her head. Looking in the direction of  Master, she asked “If I did not die, why did I become like this?”

Master turned his body to face Ah Yao, “You are a living person, and your situation is very different from other spirits. Although I do not know the reason why your soul had left in the first place, but since you’re alive, you can return to your own body at any time.”

Mo Zhen  frowned, standing aside without talking.

Ah Yao stood still as she digested the master’s words. She watched as Mo Zhen turned to the Master and asked: “How can she  return to her own body?”

“This …” Master paused for a moment. After a brief silence he glanced at Mo Zhen before continuing, “the time has not yet arrived.”

“Timing?” Ah Yao looked at Master, blinking in confusion., “What is the right time? When will it come?”

Master chuckle softly, his demeanour being completely that of a God, right down to the mysterious look in his eyes as he said, “That secret cannot be revealed.”

Ah Yao thought: “…”

Why did all Fortune Tellers like to say this sentence? If it can’t be revealed, then you do not say it ah!

Ah Yao’s heart was uncomfortable, but Master had already long abandoned Ah Yao’s concerns  and instead talked about the people’s livelihood. “I heard that the steak in the Carlisle restaurant was delicious, and I have not eaten breakfast yet.”

Mo: “…”

What kind of plan was eating steak in the morning?! ! Was  the restaurant even open at this hour?

But his words reminded Ah Yao of something. Her eyes lit up as she turned to the master and said: “Master, I have a bowl of white porridge ah!” Last night the White Demon 2.0 porridge prepared had not been touched by Mo Zhen. The porridge was stored in the fridge. She could quickly take it out and reheat it.

Ah Yao did not wait for the master to make a response. The refrigerator door opened and closed with  small bounce, a small wok floated from the cupboard, and the gas suddenly ignited.

Master raised his eyebrows, quite surprised as he glanced at Ah Yao moving around. , “What a hard-working little girl. No wonder Mo Zhen is so reluctant to let you go.”

Mo: “…”

Does he need to repeat it again? But this time Mo Zhen no longer cared about Master’s words. He believed that Ah Yao would only pay attention to the complimentary first half of Master’s sentence.

“Is that so? Is Zhen Zhen really reluctant to leave me” Ah Yao moved to stand before Mo Zhen, cupping her face as she stared at him.

Mo: “…”

So much for only listening to the first part of it!

Mo Zhen walked around Ah Yao and headed to the kitchen. the porridge. After the porridge had heated, Mo Zhen did not wait for Ah Yao, but instead voluntary grabbed two bowls from the cupboard and dug out a few small dishes, placing them onto the table..

The master walked to the table, glancing at the contents on the table, he nodded and said, “It looks surprisingly pretty good, though it would be better if the porridge was freshly cooked.”

Ah Yao who had his words hung her head, bowing down and staring at the floor, she said in a quiet voice: “It was originally made last night, but Zhen Zhen did not want to eat it.”

That bitter and grieving expression made Mo Zhen seem as if he had a bad heart.

But the most frightening thing was, even Mo Zhen himself thought so too.

He pulled the chair out without a word, sat down and started to eat his porridge porridge. At this point he had just wanted to be a quiet beauty eating porridge peacefully, although he felt Ah Yao was certainly acting.

As Master watched Mo Zhen’s actions, the corners of his mouth rose higher and higher, he pulled out a chair to sit beside Mo Zhen, and quietly ate his porridge.

Breakfast was a simple and quick meal. Before even 5 minutes had passed, Master’s bowl had already been emptied out.

He wiped his mouth with a paper towel on the table and stood up from his chair. “In order to thank you for making this bowl of porridge, I’ll give this bracelet to you as a gift.” He looked at the Ah Yao, speaking gracefully.

He had just finished speaking when a bracelet suddenly appeared in his right hand. Although the material of the bracelet was unknown, but each bead had complicated patterns carved within; the middle was decorated with two small bells, when Master moved his right hand, the two bells sang a ringing sound as they clinked together..

“Wow, Master is so powerful!” Ah Yao watched as her eyes lit up, “but how can this thing be worn on my wrist?” She did not have a body, it was only because of Piao Piao’s magic method that she was even able to change clothes..

“This is very simple.” Master smiled, motioning for Ah Yao to give him her hand. Ah Yao obediently followed his instructions as Master pull the bracelet on her wrist; when the bracelet was finally on, a white flash appeared as master slowly released his hand. The bracelet on Ah Yao’s wrist shook a few times, but it did not fall off.

“Wow!” Ah Yao excitedly shook her left hand, the two bells sang out as they tinkered quietly, “Zhen Zhen look! It’s really on!”

Mo Zhen glanced at Ah Yao’s hand and turned to the master and asked: “What is the use of this bracelet?”

“Her soul has been away from her body for too long, the soul may be a little damaged now. This bracelet can help her keep the vitality and protect the spirit of the body, however,” Master paused, “Do not interact with any people today, or else it will affect the spiritual power of the bracelet . ”

“Oh.” Ah Yao nodded her head understandingly, “How do I not interact with people though?”

“Have a good stay at home and you’ll be fine,” said the Master, looking across at Mo Zhen, he said, “Let’s go eat steak now.”

Mo: “…”

Ah Yao: “…”

Why did it always feel as if Master was planning his next chess move?
