He had neither cultivation nor the knowledge of physiognomy to calculate others’ fortunes. However, as long as one had eyes and a heart, they didn’t need any special ability to observe a person’s expression.

Gu Yan saw the stunned expression on the youth who was less than a metre away from him, and this expression had only appeared after looking at him. He couldn’t help but be curious about what the other person had seen on his face.

Divination masters could read one’s fortune from their face and according to the plot, Gu Yan didn’t need to think twice to know that his fate must be one filled with misfortune and calamity. However, this wasn’t sufficient enough to explain the other person’s dumbfounded expression.

His expression seemed to say he had seen something extraordinary, thus, undergoing such a change.

The handsome youth in front of him was the protagonist of this world, also known as his ‘own child’. In the end, this was the person whose character appeared the most number of times in the story. Thinking of this point, Gu Yan raised a brow towards the youth who had already schooled his expression.

He hadn’t come in contact with his own son in every single world. Apart from the first one, the only world which he had met the protagonist was when he had transmigrated into a peak lord master.

Gu Yan also didn’t have a particularly strong desire to meet either, treating it as part of fate if they met and if they didn’t meet, it was also very normal. After all, the person who he wanted to find wasn’t the protagonist protected by his halo and filled with luck, but…

“Since all three masters have arrived, let us begin. The fengshui in the ancestral shrine is extremely crucial, we can’t waste any time.” The middle-aged man standing before the three people and addressing them fiddled with the jade ring on his finger as he spoke. Although his face appeared rather warm and friendly, his eyes were quite the opposite; extremely gloomy.

The entire area had been sealed off such that escape was impossible. If, among the group of people who had been ‘invited’ here, there was a person who wanted to run, the only fate that awaited him was to be directly dragged into the ancestral shrine.

The other two who had legitimate skills were calm. They had chosen to accept this job due to the remuneration which included a spiritual jade. Of course, this wasn’t an ordinary jade, but a spiritual weapon that had developed spiritual aura after more than a hundred years. This was a top grade crafting tool for any divination master.

Till now, these two were just like the others who believed that the cause of the calamity in the ancestral shrine was due to bad fengshui. This thought was because this situation only began after the family had invited a fengshui expert to improve the fengshui. So, they couldn’t be blamed for thinking so.

Even if the fengshui of a huge mansion had been disturbed beyond recognition, for divination masters who truly had the skills, it was a simple matter to fix it. Therefore, these two people had sufficient confidence in themselves.

But frankly speaking, Gu Yan who knew the truth, wanted very much to run if he could. Having his escape route cut off, he abided by the rule, silence is golden, and maintained an aloof attitude akin to a superior person, like the other two beside him.

He also didn’t need to speak. He only needed to enter the ancestral shrine and the two legitimate divination masters will immediately notice the situation.

“Kid, risking your life for fortune isn’t an easy job, normal people need to cherish their life and what you have,” Before entering the dark and gloomy ancestral shrine, a long, white-haired man called “Master Zhao” said to the dark-haired youth beside him.

His voice wasn’t loud and it had been deliberately lowered to avoid the Shen family’s people. Only the three of them could hear it.

This ‘kid’ was referring to him. Gu Yan’s reaction was quick, he looked up and met the old man’s pair of sharp eyes that didn’t seem to reflect any signs of age in them. Then, he coughed softly and nodded.

This person was reminding him out of goodwill, Gu Yan knew of this point because in the novel, this person, Zhao Xu, played the role of a friendly mentor to aid the protagonist’s growth. He regularly carried out kind deeds and any fortune teller who could read physiognomy would be able to see that he belonged to the group of people who enjoyed extremely good fortune.

Seeing that this nod was genuine, Zhao Xu retracted his gaze. He didn’t know how this dark-haired youth who hadn’t even awakened his divine eyes had managed to trick the head of the Shen family. He only knew that this person’s fate which originally had a trace of death suddenly changed and his physiognomy had also become one filled with luck.

The dark energy which had latched onto the youth’s body earlier, seemed to have abruptly become scared of the primordial energy from the youth, escaping so quickly that even a shadow wasn’t left. This strange phenomenon couldn’t be explained even in the field of cultivation, leaving Ye Cheng Yu stunned while Zhao Xu at a loss for words.

Perhaps, this was all due to the primordial energy of chaos on his body. Even after finding a forced reasoning, Zhao Xu was unable to convince himself.

Those whose bodies contained the primordial energy of chaos experienced good luck. But with just a small thread of that energy, it was impossible to rely on that energy to save his life, especially when the person himself was seeking death. However, this was the only possible explanation, and he had no choice but to believe it.

To escape death and even enjoy good fortune, he could even escape his fate easily. If this person no longer put himself in such a death-seeking situation like this in the future, he would be able to enjoy peaceful days without a hitch with the primordial energy’s protection.

Having given them sufficient time for preparations, it was finally time. The few bodyguards wearing suits surrounded them from the sides once more and escorted the three great masters to the entrance of the ancestral shrine.

From a distance, the dark and gloomy aura radiating from the ancestral shrine could already be felt. Now that they were closer, it wasn’t something as simple as aura. The evil darkness seemed to plaster on any part of their skin that wasn’t covered by their clothes before penetrating, strand by strand, into their bodies. Once some time had passed, normal people with a weaker constitution would no doubt feel a chill all over.

At this point, the two people beside Gu Yan finally detected the anomalies of their situation. How bad must the fengshui of this place be for such dark energy to appear…?

This wasn’t simply bad fengshui, but rather…

“There’s something dirty here.” The moment he stepped foot into the ancestral shrine, Ye Cheng Yu’s face sunk.

At the side, Zhao Xu’s expression also changed but as an experienced veteren, his reaction was much more calm. He merely frowned.

“Don’t use ‘dirty’, there will be some ghosts who get unhappy.” These words, if heard by others, might sound like a joke but Zhao Xu was serious.

Gu Yan with his extreme clarity on the world’s plot stayed silent and played with his fingers. Meanwhile, Ye Cheng Yu who had just stepped foot into the spiritual realm not too long ago seemed to choke on his words. He knew the white-haired elderly man wasn’t joking but he also didn’t know how to reply.

“Humans have their own social circle and so do ghosts. Wait until the day you meet a true divination master or get the chance to take a trip to Ghost City, you’ll know I’m not lying,” Zhao Xu shook his head as he said this, picking up a yellow talisman.

Compared to the rookie of the spiritual world who was still trying to digest this knowledge, the person who seemed to be a regular human in the eyes of the other two appeared to be much more calm. In the end, these were the settings he had written, how could he be surprised…

It had been mentioned earlier that this wasn’t a scientifically logical world. Spirits and ghosts existed, just that regular people weren’t able to see them.

Zhao Xu was right, ghosts had their own social circle and society just like humans. Within their circle, they also had a hierarchy but this was according to their strength. In the Ghost City, the strongest one was king and sat on the highest throne. However, the king constantly faced the threat of being overthrown at any time and once defeated, their ending usually wasn’t pretty.

According to the current setting, the person sitting on the highest throne in the Ghost City hadn’t changed for a long time. There was only one ghost who had ever broken the curse of no ghost ever being able to sit on the throne for more than a hundred years. With that, he had been reigning over the city for a few thousand years.

Xie Lan. Whispering these words in his heart, Gu Yan felt a familiar headache and nostalgia.

Thinking of this name, Gu Yan then recalled the terrible ending he had written for this particular world. In five years time, on the fourteenth of the seventh month, this ghost who had managed to suppress the spirits in the ghost city for a few thousand years committed something extremely heinous on the day the doors of the underworld opened—

Leading the entire underworld, they completely washed the human realm with blood.

Speaking of which, the death of his original host was also linked to this person. The evil spirit residing in the Shen family’s ancestral shrine was a spirit sent by this person to the human realm.

“I’ll help you awaken your divine eye in case you unknowingly run into danger later.” Saying so, Zhao Xu didn’t give the dark-haired youth a chance to reject him before placing a palm against his eyes and muttering a mantra that didn’t even last one second.

“Don’t worry, it’s not permanent. You just need it for now.”

Nodding, Gu Yan thanked him.

Now that they knew this wasn’t caused by bad fengshui, they had to think of another method. Out of the two other people that came along with him, one was a rookie without any experience in dealing with spirits while the other was a completely powerless man. Zhao Ze sighed, his expression growing grave.

“Southeast,” Just as he read off the direction pointed on his compass, the white-haired man’s brows furrowed. The spirit seemed to be approaching them.

It wasn’t a mistake, their surroundings had indeed grown colder. Just as Gu Yan turned around to look at the other side, the two people in front of him already received a blow.

BAM! He heard the sound of something heavy falling.

“To your right, quickly dodge!” Seeing that the spirit had stopped chasing after them and was heading towards the other direction, Ye Cheng Yu shouted at the dark-haired youth not far from them.

Even spirits knew the logic of picking the softest persimmon in the garden.

Before he even heard the warning, Gu Yan had already prepared to evade. However, a human’s speed couldn’t be compared to these beings that couldn’t be explained using science. Just as he wanted to move out of the way, the spirit had already closed in.

At such close proximity, two pairs of eyes met.

“…?” Gu Yan stumbled backwards before catching and steadying himself. Like the other two, he also fell into a stunned silence.

That spirit…seemed to have been frightened off?

The moment their eyes had met, Gu Yan thought he had seen a flicker of fear in the pair of dark and evil eyes.

It was truly fear. A magnitude of fear that had caused the spirit to be scared off.

But why…?

The feeling this person gave it was too strange compared to the other living people. It felt as if it had escaped from certain death. The evil spirit, who had already died once, ran away before condensing into its original form. 

It had seen those eyes before. It had seen them in the painting his master had done…

No matter what, it was impossible to be mistaken. His master had painted many pictures of this person and only him.

When he first started painting, the face of the man on the paper would always be left blank. Until a pair of eyes were finally added.

It remembered its master’s expression when he had painted those eyes. It was different from how he usually was… seemingly careful, as if handling his most precious treasure.
