Reborn Girl’s New Life - Chapter 781 - The Charlatan
Chapter 781 The Charlatan
According to what the Taoist priest said, annihilating Gu Changge was surely within the realm of possibility.
But Gu Changle still had some doubts about it.
So instead of waiting for the Taoist priest to perform rituals after dark, she invited the Taoist priest to the living room for tea, politely asked him to drink tea, and talked with him.
“How may I call you?”
“Everyone calls me Taoist Priest Qingxu.” With this, the Taoist priest raised his hand and stroked his goatee priggishly.
Gu Changle pondered for a while. However, she could recall neither any rumors about this Taoist Priest Qingxu nor his reputation. Thus she said, “It seems that I’ve never heard about any fame of you.”
“It’s not your fault. I’m not from Yuncheng in the first place. My hometown is the Wu’an Mountain.”
Hearing that, Gu Changle nodded, replying, “Oh… I see.”
The Taoist Priest nodded, “Yep.”
Gu Changle made a few discreet inquiries about the Taoist priest’s origins.
But Shao Tianze didn’t care about these. He only wanted to know whether the Taoist priest could beat Gu Changge out of her wits.
So after Gu Changle finished with her questions, Shao Tianze asked the Taoist priest, “I wonder how sure you are of this exorcism?”
Hearing Shao Tianze’s question, the Taoist priest smiled, replying, “No need to worry, Mr. Shao. Although she’s been possessed by a ghost, she is an ill-fated person. Thus it is easy to deal with her.”
Gu Changle was intrigued, asking, “How can you tell that she is ill-fated?”
“To my view, she’s not only ill-fated, but she also has a terrible fortune!”
Hearing that the Taoist priest said Song Yunxuan had such an unfortunate life, Shao Tianze also got interested.
Seeing that Shao Tianze was also turned on, the Taoist priest said, “Look. She’s from a small pond. But soon after she got to Yuncheng, she made her father die. Then her eldest sister died and her eldest brother went to prison. Last but not least, her fiancé died in a plane crash. These all happened because of her!”
Hearing how the Taoist priest described Song Yunxuan, Gu Changle couldn’t help snorting, “It’s such a d*vil. Are you sure that you can manipulate it?”
“I sure can. If I cannot, I won’t boast of my competence. Just rest assured.”
Hearing that, Gu Changle and Shao Tianze nodded in unison.
Then Gu Changle said, “In that case, our family will count on you.”
After Gu Changle finished her words,
Shao Tianze added, “If you succeed in driving away this d*vil, you’ll be highly rewarded.”
Seeing that Gu Changle and Shao Tianze were both courting him, the Taoist priest nodded, saying, “Don’t worry. I’ll keep my word. You may rest assured.”
After the Taoist Priest Qingxu’s repeated assurances, Shao Tianze and Gu Changle looked less worried.
However, Song Yunxuan eventually knew that they asked someone to exorcise the ghost.
Hearing Mei Qi’s words, Song Yunxuan couldn’t help sneering, “Exorcising ghosts?”
“No. They will be exorcising you, Manager Song.”
Mei Qi came straight to the point.
Song Yunxuan nodded, saying, “Right, they should be exorcising me. But what’s the use of hiring such a charlatan?”
Didn’t they have the measure of themselves? Didn’t they know that they could never beat Song Yunxuan?
Song Yunxuan snorted, pulling her shawl. Then she turned to look at Mei Qi, saying, “Do you think I’ll be exorcised?”
“It’s hard to say, Manager Song.”
Mei Qi couldn’t tell what would happen either.
Seeing that Mei Qi couldn’t give a definite answer, Song Yunxuan said, “Well, let’s just wait for him to exorcise me. If the Taoist Priest Qingxu can really discomfort me, I’ll admit defeat and let off the Shao Family.”
Song Yunxuan staked a little bit too much.
Mei Qi felt somewhat worried, saying, “But you haven’t got the Taoist Priest Qingxu taped. If you do not guard against him at all…”
Song Yunxuan raised her hand and cut Mei Qi off, saying, “Assistant Mei, you gotta trust me. I’m a living person. How can they hurt me by using the way of exorcising ghosts?”
Hearing Song Yunxuan’s words, Mei Qi slightly knitted his brows, echoing, “You are right, Miss Song. They can’t do you the slightest harm.”
Having said that, Mei Qi was frantic with worry.
After all, Song Yunxuan’s origin remained a mystery.
Although Mei Qi had speculated about the relation between Song Yunxuan and Gu Changge many times,
As the laws of nature were absolute and he did not really believe in superstition, he did not think too much of it.
Now seeing what happened to Song Yunxuan, Mei Qi couldn’t help getting worried.
“When are they going to exorcise me?”
Song Yunxuan asked Mei Qi.
Mei Qi answered, “Tonight.”
Song Yunxuan took a look at the wall clock in the living room.
It showed that it was already six o’clock.
It was just a few hours before the night fell.
She raised her hand and rubbed her brows, saying, “I’ll have dinner earlier tonight and wait for them in my room.”
“Shall I call for a doctor now?”
Mei Qi asked Song Yunxuan.
Song Yunxuan frowned, saying, “So you choose to believe that I’m a ghost?”
“No. I believe that you are a human being. But you are emotionally unstable these days. I’m worried that it may affect the health of the baby in your belly and something may happen to you. Thus I want to call for a doctor for you.”
Hearing that, Song Yunxuan nodded, replying, “Since you’ve thought it over, you may as well call for a doctor.”
Song Yunxuan agreed. Then Mei Qi immediately ordered his man to call for a doctor.
Meanwhile, when the Shao Family saw that the night was falling,
Gu Changle and Shao Tianze got more and more anxious, looking forward to it.
Gu Changle held Shao Tianze’s fingers, watching the Taoist Priest Qingxu set up a strange sacrificial platform in the yard and then set up an evocation pennant.
Then she asked Shao Tianze with great seriousness, “She can never revive after this, can she?”
“Maybe.” Shao Tianze was not sure about it.
But he was very hopeful about the Taoist Priest Qingxu.
If Song Yunxuan was eradicated this time, the Shao enterprise would not have any crisis in the future.
Besides, Song Yunxuan was as scheming as Gu Changge, which was very terrifying.
What the Taoist priest said was quite credible.
Though Yuan Xi was pretty messed up by Song Yunxuan, he was the one who enabled Gu Changle to see what Song Yunxuan really was as he took the lead.
Seeing that it was getting dark, the Taoist priest began to move around the yard, holding the evocation pennant.
Gu Changle saw that sparks flew once in a while in the yard.
She couldn’t help asking Shao Tianze, “What’s that?”
“I have no idea. Just watch.”
Gu Changle nodded, trying to calm down. She saw that the Taoist priest was muttering and shaking his head from side to side once in a while.
He also strewed something in his hand now and then.
Sometimes he pulled out the wooden sword from the sacrificial platform and waved it towards the sky.
It appeared that he was fighting against something.
What the Taoist priest did stunned Shao Tianze and Gu Changle.
But Song Yunxuan, who was now in the Song Family, did not feel uncomfortable at all.
More than that, she dispatched someone she could trust to the Shao Family in secret.
Song Yunxuan asked him to photograph every move of the Taoist Priest Qingxu who was performing rituals in the yard from a distance and transmit it to her computer.
Song Yunxuan saw that the Taoist Priest Qingxu was hopping back and forth in the yard like doing rope skipping.
Song Yunxuan was amused by it, saying, “What a clown! He really thinks he can exorcise ghosts by that?”
Song Yunxuan was not afraid of such Taoist priests’ ghost-catching methods at all.
Because only the White Dragon King and the Xuanshui Dragon King could calculate that she was reincarnated in someone else’s body.
As they could calculate her real origins, they naturally knew how to deal with her.
Yuan Xi was on the right track. If he wanted to deal with Song Yunxuan, he had to ask the Xuanshui Dragon King and the White Dragon King for methods.
But Yuan Xi had got into such a plight.
Shao Tianze and Gu Changle didn’t dare to stay long in Thailend at all.
And just because of this, Gu Changle and Shao Tianze would believe in such Taoist priests and monks.
The monk was not too stupid. He knew that he should not goad Song Yunxuan.
But it seemed that this Taoist priest did not have the measure of himself.
He was actually so arrogant and threatened that he would scare the wits out of Song Yunxuan.
“When you leave the Shao Family, I’ll shock you to the core.”
Song Yunxuan narrowed her eyes.
The Taoist priest who was performing rituals in the Shao Family gave an involuntary shudder.
It seemed that a gust of evil wind just blew him.
He looked back in a flurry, fearing that something evi*l might appear here.
However, he felt nothing but air.
There was nothing behind him on the ground.
It also aroused Shao Tianze’s and Gu Changle’s suspicion.
Shao Tianze even asked Gu Changle, “What did he see?”
“I don’t know.”
Gu Changle looked closely at the Taoist priest.
Seeing that Gu Changle and Shao Tianze were both looking at him, the Taoist priest knew that he should do something.
Then he stabbed the wooden sword onto the ground, showing that he had pierced through something. Then he snapped, “D*vil! Show yourself!”
Then he posted a tally towards the air.
Seeing that, Gu Changle and Shao Tianze both frowned, asking, “Caught it?”
“You’ve caught it, right?”
Gu Changle got excited.
Shao Tianze echoed, “It appears so.”
“I’ll go and see it.” Shao Tianze opened the door, preparing to get out.
Seeing that, Gu Changle stopped him, saying, “Not now. Let’s wait for a while. You may be in danger if you go out now. Let the Taoist priest stops her now and let’s go out later.”
