Reborn Girl’s New Life - Chapter 782 - The Charlatan (2)
Chapter 782 The Charlatan (2)
Gu Changle and Shao Tianze felt that they’d better not rush out to the yard.
Taoist Priest Qingxu posted the yellow tally towards the air and then pierced through it with his mahogany sword.
Meanwhile, he was scolding something.
Seeing that from the remote video, Song Yunxuan couldn’t help laughing, “What on earth did he catch?”
No one responded to her.
She pondered for a moment and then leaned back onto the soft pillow on the bed.
That was right. Who would respond to her at the moment?
Everyone who was related to her had gone, except Mei Qi who was not related to her.
Neither Gu Yi nor Miaomiao could accompany her or talk with her.
She gradually stopped sneering.
Her eyes began to get cold.
Could the charlatan exorcise ghosts?
If a charlatan could exorcise the ghost in her mind, she would abandon her plan for revenge.
If Gu Changge had been able to revive and continue to live in this world…
If her daughter had been alive, calling her mom and throwing herself into her arms,
Gu Changge would give up her plan for revenge.
But everything had changed. Gu Changge had been hurt irreparably.
Gu Changge was also dead.
But Gu Changle and Shao Tianze were alive.
They deserved more than death. But they still lived in this world.
It was not fair at all.
Song Yunxuan slowly clenched her fists.
And she couldn’t help narrowing her eyes.
Just at this moment,
The yellow tally with Gu Changge’s name on it, which was penetrated by Taoist Priest Qingxu’s mahogany sword, suddenly burned with a blue flame as if it had been really possessed by a ghost.
The flame rose into the air and it suddenly burst.
It even shocked the Taoist Priest Qingxu with the mahogany sword.
He was holding the mahogany sword and was too scared to speak. What was worse, he had a nasty feeling.
He also wanted to leave the Shao Family immediately.
He frowned and reluctantly proceeded with the exorcism.
It took him an hour to finish all the process.
Gu Changle and Shao Tianze remained in the house and watched Taoist Priest Qingxu finish all the process of the exorcism from a distance.
It was already nine o’clock at night when the whole process was over.
Usually, at this time, Gu Changle would go to have the beauty sleep.
But seeing Taoist Priest Qingxu exorcising ghosts outside, Gu Changle wasn’t sleepy at all.
Meanwhile, when Taoist Priest Qingxu finished his work, he was exhausted and covered with sweat.
He noticed that Gu Changle and Shao Tianze were staring at him in the living room.
He walked over and bid respectfully to Shao Tianze and Gu Changle, saying, “I’ve finished my job.”
“So have you exorcised the d*vil Gu Changge?”
Hearing the question, Taoist Priest Qingxu suddenly recalled the yellow tally which strangely burned with a blue flame during the process just now.
He replied with a smile, “I surely have.”
“So will Song Yunxuan die tonight?”
Taoist Priest Qingxu raised his hand and stroked his beard, replying, “Although Song Yunxuan won’t die immediately tonight, she will get weaker and weaker in the next few months.”
Hearing the Taoist priest’s word, Gu Changle appeared unhappy, snapping, “Didn’t you say that you exorcised her? Why hasn’t anything happened to her?”
“Ah, this is because Miss Song’s soul is still with her although the ghost has been exorcised. Although lots of spirits and energy have been absorbed by the ghost, her remaining spirits and energy can still keep her alive for several months. It will take some time to see how much her body will decay.”
“So she is now Song Yunxuan, right?”
Shao Tianze asked Taoist Priest Qingxu.
He immediately nodded, replying, “She sure is.”
When Shao Tianze heard that, his knitted brows became somewhat smooth.
If the person in Song Yunxuan’s body was not Gu Changge, but Song Yunxuan herself, there would be nothing to worry about.
After all, Gu Changge was such a sophisticated person in the business world and knew very well about the wheeling-and-dealing.
It was extremely difficult to scheme against her.
But it was much easier to deal with Song Yunxuan.
Song Yunxuan was just an inexperienced chick from a small town.
She was not scheming at all.
Even if someone assisted her, they might not be able to help her run the Song enterprise as well as Gu Changge.
Shao Tianze sat on the couch, looking at Taoist Priest Qingxu.
Taoist Priest Qingxu smiled, saying with embarrassment, “Since I’ve finished my job, I shall be leaving now.”
Gu Changle nodded and did not respect him as much as she did just now.
Since the ghost had been exorcised, she didn’t need to be so polite to the Taoist priest.
Gu Changle yawned, preparing to turn in. But Taoist Priest Qingxu, who just said that he would leave, still remained in the living room.
Seeing that Taoist Priest Qingxu still remained in the living room, Shao Tianze knew what he wanted.
He said, “If I want your service next time, how can I contact you?”
When Taoist Priest Qingxu heard that, he smiled, took out a business card from his arms, and handed it to Shao Tianze, saying, “Here is the address to find me and the phone number to contact me. If necessary, you can contact me according to the business card.”
Shao Tianze took over the card and nodded.
Seeing that Shao Tianze mentioned nothing about the reward as he did not bring up the topic, Taoist Priest Qingxu bit the bullet, “Mr. Shao, I’ve finished what I should do. So should you fulfill your commitment…”
With this, Taoist Priest Qingxu made a gesture of accepting money.
Shao Tianze said, “Sure. One million.”
With this, Shao Tianze wrote a check and handed it to Taoist Priest Qingxu.
Taoist Priest Qingxu seemed to be somewhat greedy, saying, “It’s a ferocious ghost.”
“I’ll wait and see the effect. If the ferocious ghost on Song Yunxuan doesn’t leave her body as you said, I’ll let you come and exorcise her again.”
“That won’t happen.” Taoist Priest Qingxu insisted. Then he seemed to understand something, saying, “I know you don’t really believe in me. But if our Qingxu clan says that something has been exorcised, it surely has. You can rest assured that the ev*l things have been exorcised. The burning yellow tally just now was the ghost of the sealed ev*l. I’ve burned her.”
Gu Changle and Shao Tianze both saw that yellow tally.
And they both saw that it burned out of thin air.
Hearing that, Shao Tianze trusted him a little bit more.
And Taoist Priest Qingxu knew when to stop in case he might go too far.
Seeing that Shao Tianze trusted him a bit more, he continued, “But I’m in no hurry for the money now.”
Shao Tianze nodded, replying, “If I’ve made sure that the e*vil thing did leave Song Yunxuan, I’ll give you another million. You’ll be able to get it in ten days.”
“Thanks, Mr. Shao.” After that, Taoist Priest Qingxu said, “It’s getting late. I’ll return with my apprentice.”
“You’ve brought an apprentice?”
Shao Tianze didn’t notice that.
Taoist Priest Qingxu answered, “One of those who came to set the sacrificial platform just now is my apprentice. I asked him to stay and go back with me after it’s done. Now it’s getting late. I shall be leaving.”
“OK. Take care.”
“OK. You should have a good rest, too.”
After they had an exchange of greetings, a maid saw Taoist Priest Qingxu off the Shao Family.
As soon as they walked to the gate of the Shao Family, a young man who was about twenty-five or twenty-six strode over, saying to Taoist Priest Qingxu, “Master, can we leave now?”
“Yes. Drive me back.”
“The car is outside the gate. Let’s go. I’ve been waiting so long.”
Taoist Priest Qingxu still seemed to be calm and cool.
After seeing him off, the maid went back and closed the gate.
After Taoist Priest Qingxu had gone far away from the Shao Family and made sure that the maid of the Shao Family had returned, he said to his apprentice, “Ziling, go faster.”
“OK. I’m so sleepy and want to turn in as soon as possible. By the way, Master, how much did they pay you for the rope skipping?”
“Just one million?”
Hearing his Master’s answer, the apprentice called Ziling felt that the reward was too little.
He even reached out for Taoist Priest Qingxu’s pocket and took out the one-million check.
“When will we exchange it for cash?”
“Tomorrow?” Ziling asked him, feeling confused, “Master, you don’t look well.”
Taoist Priest Qingxu said, “Ziling, let me ask you about something. Do tell me the truth.”
“OK.” Ziling looked at his Master with great seriousness, waiting for his question.
Taoist Priest Qingxu knitted his brows, saying, “Have you put too much phosphor in one of those yellow tallies you prepared?”
“Too much phosphor?” Ziling asked strangely, “Master, I did not put phosphor on any of todays’ yellow tallies.”
Hearing that, Taoist Priest Qingxu recalled the yellow tally that burned out of thin air. Then his face clouded.
Ziling noticed that his Master’s face clouded, asking, “Master, is there anything wrong?”
“D*mn it.” Taoist Priest Qingxu covered his chest with his hands, ordering him, “Hurry. We’ll leave Yuncheng for Harbor City by water tonight.”
“What’s the rush?”
Ziling did not understand.
But Taoist Priest Qingxu’s face turned pale and he replied, “In the past, we just played tricks. But I really encountered a ghost this time. The ghost is coming for the Shao Family. We must stay out of it. Let’s leave with the money. Or we’ll die here.”
When Ziling heard his Master’s words, his face also turned pale.
