The Master of Metaphysics is The Movie Queen – Chapter 24

TMMTMQ – Chapter 24

Lu Yongyi originally planned to stroll back along the way, but saw Gong Qingyao walking very fast. They arrived at the hotel before Lu Yongyi even managed to say any words, so he had to say, "Then you rest early."

"Yeah." Gong Qingyao closed the door, took a good shower, washed the clothes used before, and then lied down on the bed again. She took out the phone to continue scan Weibo.

Seeing Gong Qingyao's Weibo, Lu Qianqian suggested again, "How about you delete the previous photos?" She didn't understand how Gong Qingyao was like that before. Anyway, now that she had a new life, she had to delete the past. Or else, she would be branded as a scam in the entertainment industry.

Gong Qingyao briefly explained her reasoning.

"So, because it was the original owner’s photo, you didn't want to delete it?" Lu Qianqian was stunned, this, so there the crossing she often read on novels were real, no wonder when she asked Gong Qingyao before if it was from ancient times, Gong Qing Yao said yes, feelings are the truth!

"Yeah." Gong Qingyao nodded.

"Then why did you throw away the original owner’s clothes and quilts?" Lu Qianqian said.

"She doesn't need it anymore." Gong Qingyao said. Everything on Weibo meant that this person had existed, but the quilt and clothes were useless.

Lu Qianqian was a little puzzled, "Why don't you burn the clothes? Burning clothes for the dead, can they receive it?"

Gong Qingyao asked instead, "Did you receive any?"

Lu Qianqian automatically nodded, but then she shook her head. She didn't receive any clothes either. "What about the money, isn't there a coin to burn?" After Lu Qianqian asked, she went on to say, "I don't seem to have received any money either. Are these all bluffing?"

Gong Qingyao said, "You can receive them if it was real coins, but most of the coins in the market today are fake." She discovered this when she went to buy yellow paper and cinnabar.

This thing could also be faked, and Lu Qianqian was speechless for a while.

In fact, she couldn’t blame the store for selling fakes, as the making of Ming coins was not that simple. 

Ming Coins

There were several comments on Gong Qingyao’s own Weibo. She didn’t click to read it at the restaurant just now. When she clicked on it, she found that many of the comments were made by Little milk jelly.

[Little milk jelly: Master, I really broke up with that scumbag. He was on two boats.]

[Little milk jelly: Although he is not my destined person, I decided to never fall in love again!]

[Little milk jelly: Ah, ah, master, I'm here to apologize, you are really accurate, I really met my destined person. I really didn't expect in such a short time appear a man that made me fall in love at first sight, thank you master.]

This little milk jelly commented under Gong Qingyao's first Weibo. Before, Gong Qingyao said that her destined marriage partner will appear next month. She didn't believe it, but it's not just her.

Even Lu Qianqian was surprised, "You can detect it only through eight characters and without even seeing her?"

"The eight characters could measure a person lifetime." Gong Qingyao said. A person's destiny and future could be inferred from their eight characters.

In addition to comments, Little milk jelly also sent a private message.

- Little milk jelly : Master, I know that fortune-telling will usually charge a certain fee, although you said it’s free, this is my thank you. 

Little milk jelly sent out eight hundred yuan red envelope, Gong Qingyao directly accepted it politely, and then Gong Qingyao sent another Weibo.

[Gong Qingyao: Fortune-telling, the first comment is free.]

This time was different from the last time. As soon as it was posted on Weibo, someone immediately replied.

[Excessive sweetness: Master, I want to count!]

Gong Qingyao sent the other party a private message.

- Gong Qingyao: What is it?

- Excessive sweetness: What can you do?

"This tone sounded like he was here to find fault," Lu Qianqian said, "Don't count this kind of person."

"Wrong."Gong Qingyao said.

"Huh?" What's wrong?

"Because they don't believe it, we have to use facts to prove that metaphysics really exists." Gong Qingyao showed a firm looks in her eyes.

"It turned out to be like this." Lu Qianqian said, it was no wonder that Gong Qingyao would do the calculations for the other party, knowing that the other party was not really trying to calculate. She did this just to prove the existence of metaphysics.

Gong Qingyao typed her reply and sent it out.

- Gong Qingyao: Everything.

Excessive sweetness was a college student. He saw Gong Qingyao's Weibo by accident. When someone claimed it was true, he thought it was a false review by navy of Gong Qingyao.  He happened to saw that Gong Qingyao posted another free fortune-telling Weibo, so Excessive sweetness immediately replied.

Excessive sweetness saw Gong Qingyao's private message and laughed loudly in his dormitory. His roommate asked, "What are you laughing at?" 

Excessive sweetness talked about the Weibo, "Do you believe it? She said she can count everything."

"Then you just let her count it." A roommate said.

Another roommate suggested, "Aren't fortune-telling always report eight characters first? You just report one, and see what she says."

"Good idea." Excessive sweetness immediately compiled a character and sent it over.

Three minutes later, Excessive sweetness expression suddenly became serious, "F*ck, she actually said that the eight characters I gave is fake."

"F*ck, so amazing? I'll take a look." The roommates were originally playing game. After hearing this, the roommates all ran to stand behind Excessive sweetness.

"Then just give your real eight characters." Another roommate said.

"Okay." Excessive sweetness typed his birth date in the dialog box, and then sent it out.

There was no reply for a while. Just when the roommates were about to go back to their seats and continued to play games, they saw a long reply from the other party on the screen.

- Gong Qingyao: Your parents are still there, but your father is in poor health. You are the only child in the family. You were not healthy in your early years but it got better at the age of ten. You are currently studying in the northeast of the country and have had two love experiences.

Excessive sweetness almost thought it was a prank by someone who knew him well. Only close relatives knew about his health getting better at the age of ten. Indeed after he reached ten years old, his body became much stronger, and only his family new this.

This was not the key. The key was that his roommates exclaimed, "Hey, Zhao Guangwei, you have been in love twice?"

"Yeah, didn't you say that you only have one girlfriend?"

"Well Zhao Guangwei. Who else was it?" 

Zhao Guangwei looked away, "What nonsense, I only had one."

"Wait, that person has sent a message again."

"There will be a peach blossom disaster in the next few days. Oh, it seems our Zhao Guangwei still has a peach blossom~" (TN: Peach blossom her mean love life.)

"No, it's fake." Zhao Guangwei closed the computer and then climbed into his bed. He stopped responding to what his roommates said. The roommates also found him boring, and then went back to play games.

Gong Qingyao also quit Weibo after telling the other party about the peach blossom disaster. She got ready to go to bed.

In the middle of the night, Gong Qingyao's mobile phone vibrated, and Gong Qingyao opened her eyes. This was a text message notification.

- Lu Yongyi: Qingyao, I'm really sorry. Something happened in my house, I have to rush back. I won't be able to accompany you back to the Capital tomorrow. I'm really sorry.

Gong Qingyao sat up and Lu Qianqian said to the side. "I heard there just now that his mother has been unconscious and the family is in a state of anxiety. "

"How come?" Gong Qingyao frowned. 

Today, when Lu Qianqian said that Lu Yongyi's mind was impure, Gong Qingyao had seen Lu Yongyi's face, and his parents' palace eyes were shiny, indicating that his mother was well.

Gong Qingyao picked up the phone and called Lu Yongyi directly, "Wait for me."

Lu Yongyi has become accustomed to Gong Qingyao’s conciseness, so Lu Yongyi immediately understood that Gong Qingyao intended to go back with him, but because his hometown was in the mountain high and far away, Gong Qingyao would not be able to stand the rush. However, before he had time to say anything, the other party had hung up.

Gong Qingyao quickly collected her belongings and then went out. The two left the room and met in the lobby.

The bus station in this town had closed for the day, so the two of them chartered a car to City T. At dawn, they took a plane and then transferred to a car to Lu Yongyi's hometown.

It was night when the two arrived at Lu Yongyi’s home. It was originally a happy thing for his family to see Lu Yongyi bringing a girl back. However, no one was happy at this moment. 

Lu Yongyi’s father Lu Xingwang said, "Yongyi! We really can’t do anything, so I called you. You see that your mother has been in a coma for a whole day."

After dinner yesterday, Lu Yongyi’s mother Shi Cui suddenly fell to the ground, and everyone rushed her to the hospital. As a result, the doctor found that all the indicators were normal. Lu Xingwang asked the doctor why she didn't wake up when everything was normal. The doctor explained that the family members were probably too tired and was just taking a good rest.

Lu Xingwang brought Shi Cui home, and when he fell asleep in the middle of the night, Lu Xingwang suddenly woke up. He always felt that Shi Cui lying beside him was different from before, just like a corpse. Lu Xingwang was a little scared and had to call his son.

This morning, all the relatives came over, and everyone thought of a lot of ways, but Shi Cui didn't wake up at all.

Lu Yongyi looked at Lu Xingwang, "Where is mother?"

"In the room." Lu Xingwang led Lu Yongyi towards the room.

Gong Qingyao followed Lu Yongyi and walked into the room. With just one glance, Gong Qingyao found something wrong. Unlike Deng Xiuming's child, Xiaobao, Shi Cui's coma was due of being possessed by yin energy.

"Go to the hospital." Lu Yongyi was about to hug his mother up.

"We already went there today." Lu Xingwang's eldest brother said, "The hospital checked her and said everything was okay."

Lu Xingwang nodded from the side. Last night and this morning, they went to check, but there were no problems.

This yin energy sucked up the essence of a living person. Of course, the hospital wouldn’t find any problems so quickly. When the problem arises, the person was no longer salvageable. Seeing the current look, Shi Cui should have only been possessed yesterday. 

Gong Qingyao stepped forward and said to the woman standing next to Shi Cui, "Get up." 

The woman sitting next to the bed was Lu Yongyi's cousin Fang Ting. When she heard Gong Qingyao’s words, she was very dissatisfied, "Why do you talk to me like this? Even if you are my cousin’s girlfriend, you can’t talk to me like this." Today, she learned that Lu Yongyi was coming back, so she was happy. But she didn't expect Lu Yongyi to come back with a girlfriend.

Lu Yongyi’s relatives on the side were also a little dissatisfied. The girl hadn’t even married into their Lu family, but she already ordered people like this. If she married in the future, what else she would do?

Lu Yongyi quickly explained, "Fang Ting, come here, this is not my girlfriend."

Fang Ting was instantly happy when she heard this. She thought Lu Yongyi's words were specifically explained to herself, and looked at Gong Qingyao with a smug look. Did you hear that? Brother Yongyi said you are not his girlfriend.

Gong Qingyao was too lazy to pay attention to this girl so she threw Fang Ting aside like a chicken. Although the yin energy had only possessed for a day, but it was a bit heavy, "You scumbag, get out!"

Fang Ting finally stood firm. Hearing Gong Qingyao's words, she didn't dare to move in shock for a while. All the people present were also dumbfounded because of this sentence.

Gong Qingyao took out a talisman paper and read a scripture silently. Everyone was surprised to find that the talisman paper actually burned, it spontaneously ignited without any fire source.

The yin energy on Shi Cui's body perceived the existence of danger, and was about to run immediately, Gong Qingyao shouted, "Where are you running?!"

Gong Qingyao ran the profound energy in her body, struck the yin energy, and finally it stopped running. This yin energy was then collected by Gong Qingyao in her ring. At the same time, Lu Xingwang, who was standing aside, seemed to feel that the strange aura in Shi Cui's body was gone.

Gong Qingyao looked at Lu Yongyi, "Okay."

Lu Yongyi was not relieved yet. Although Gong Qingyao had always said that she was good at metaphysics, he has never seen this kind of situation. Even in Hongyan Village, Gong Qingyao took out the talismans, but those talismans did not spontaneously ignite.

Just now Gong Qingyao’s actions shocked everyone present and some people said, "I said, Yongyi, you are the most promising in our Lu family, how could you invite someone like this to come back?" 

"Yes, when did you engage in this feudal superstition?"

"Right, it's your mother who is lying on the bed." 

In the face of everyone's scolding, Lu Yongyi He pulled his face and said, "Qingyao is not a liar." 

Seeing Lu Yongyi's stubbornness, everyone looked at Lu Xingwang, "Xingwang, you have to teach Yongyi well, this road he has taken was not good."

Fang Ting also said from the side, "Yeah, Brother Yongyi, let's figure out how to save aunt."

Lu Yongyi looked at Gong Qingyao, Gong Qingyao understood, and replied, "She will wake up soon."

The person next to her immediately said, "What waking up? You just do something like that. If Shi Cui really wakes up today, I will write my name upside down." 

As soon as the voice fell, the finger of the person on the bed moved. Lu Yongyi pointed to this scene, "My mother is waking up."

"This, isn't it possible." 

The questioning voice hadn't died yet when Shi Cui's eyes opened, seeing so many people around her, she was a little confused," Why are you all here?"

Everyone was shocked by this scene and didn't know how to respond. She, she really woke up?

Shi Cui saw Lu Yongyi in the crowd, a little happy and a little surprised, "Yongyi, why are you coming back?"

Lu Yongyi stepped forward and deliberately said loudly, "Mom, you have been in a coma all day, Qing Yao saved you."

The person who said that if Shi Cui could wake up he would write his name upside down lower his head, pretending that nothing happened.

Shi Cui was a little unsure, "You said I was in a coma for a day?"

"Yeah." Lu Yongyi said, "Mom, you rest first." Everyone went out to the living room to let Shi Cui rest. 

After speaking, Lu Yongyi looked at Lu Xingwang, "Dad, uncles and aunts are all here. It's been a day, and you must be tired. You send them back first."

Everyone knew that this was Lu Yongyi's eviction order. Although they wanted to stay and see what happened next, Lu Xingwang sent them directly to the door.

Only Lu Yongyi and Gong Qingyao were left in the living room. Lu Yongyi was a little embarrassed, "Qingyao, those just now, really..." The relatives just now doubted Gong Qingyao. In fact, for a moment, even he didn't believe her.

"It's okay." Gong Qingyao said, saving Shi Cui was originally done for Lu Yongyi's sake.

Lu Xingwang sent his relatives to the door and turned around. He saw Gong Qingyao and Lu Yongyi in the living room. He was just about to join the conversation when he heard Lu Yongyi said, "It’s already dark. Today we are on the road all day, so you should stay here for one night." Lu Yongyi knew that his father had a lot to ask, but Gong Qingyao had to be tired after riding in the car all day, so he said this in advance.

Lu Xingwang said quickly, "The guest room is here, I hope the lady does not dislike it."

"Good." Gong Qingyao walked straight to the guest room.

After Gong Qingyao went to rest, Lu Xingwang pulled Lu Yongyi into his study, "You tell dad, what's that just now?"

Lu Yongyi was born in a rural area. Because he was interested in performing arts, he took this road. The family did not have a lot of money and part of it was already used for Lu Yongyi to study. Fortunately, Lu Yongyi was also very diligent after he was admitted to university. While studying performing arts-related subjects, he worked part-time. In the summer, he would go to some studios to find part-time jobs. Before graduation, he signed with his current company.

"I recently took on a reality show..." Lu Yongyi briefly explained the matter.

This reality show was broadcasted live over the Internet. It has not been broadcast on TV yet, so his family had not seen Lu Yongyi’s reality show. Everything was explained by Lu Yongyi. Lu Xingwang had a dissapointment, "In other words, she is not your girlfriend?"

Lu Yongyi smiled and replied, "Don't think about it. She doesn’t even look at your son."

Lu Xingwang has always been proud of Lu Yongyi. Hearing this, he said immediately, "What? My son is also very good."

"Okay, okay, you go to rest soon." From Shi Cui's coma to the present, Lu Xingwang must have not been able to sleep well.

"Well, you should also rest earlier." Lu Xingwang knew that his son was also tired, so he stopped talking and walked out of Lu Yongyi's bedroom.

After Gong Qingyao returned to the room, Lu Qianqian immediately came out of the ring, "Master, why did you put other things in the ring again?" She was really not used to staying in the same place with others.

"You try to swallow it." Gong Qingyao drew a trace of that yin energy and pushed it directly towards Lu Qianqian.

Lu Qianqian hurriedly adjusted her breath and meditated. At that time, Gong Qingyao only left a part of yin energy for Lu Qianqian's practice. It took Lu Qianqian two hours to refine this energy. After the refining, Lu Qianqian ran back into the ring, and Gong Qingyao fell asleep after adjusting his breath slightly.

On the next day, Gong Qingyao got up early and practiced for a while before leaving the guest room.

Shi Cui has prepared a table of food, and Lu Xingwang and Shi Cui enthusiastically entertain Gong Qingyao.

Lu Yongyi introduced, "These are all hometown dishes, and this bun is made by mother herself." In order to make these buns, Shi Cui got up to make the dough before dawn, which could be said to be very diligent.

Gong Qingyao nodded, "It's delicious."

Shi Cui smiled happily when she heard it, "Then eat more."

Lu Xingwang hurriedly pushed a ceramic bowl next to Gong Qingyao, "This is chili sauce. We made it ourselves too. I don’t know if Miss Gong will be used to eating something like this."

Gong Qingyao replied, "It’s good." 

After eating breakfast, Lu Yongyi expressed his concerns, "Qingyao , what else should my mother pay attention to for the follow-up?"

Gong Qingyao said, "Nothing, the yin energy is gone."

Yin energy?

Hearing this, Shi Cui's face suddenly became pale, Lu Xingwang looked at Shi Cui with an incredulous expression, "Yin, Yin energy? How did you get it?"

Shi Cui was also a little scared, "I don't know."

Lu Yongyi was very fortunate to bring Gong Qingyao back together yesterday, "How can this yin energy affect a person?" His parents have worked all their lives and have never done bad things. How could they be entangled with yin energy?

Shi Cui and Lu Xingwang also looked at Gong Qingyao with worry. Gong Qingyao explained, "There are many ways to be infect yin energy. You may have been to a place where yin energy is heavy, such as a cemetery, or you may encounter objects that have heavy yin energy."

Lu Xingwang said to the side, "We have a cemetery here, but did you go there yesterday?"

Shi Cui quickly denied, "Why should I go there willy-nilly?"

Lu Yongyi asked, "Then. Did you bump into something strange yesterday?"

Shi Cui shook her head, "No."

"You think about it again carefully." Lu Xingwang said.

Shi Cui thought while saying, "I had breakfast at home yesterday morning. After I finished eating, I cleaned up the house, went to buy some vegetables, and returned at noon to continue cooking lunch. Then in the afternoon, Aunt Liang next door called me over and said she got several good things recently and wanted to give me one. I looked at the things and found that one of the boxes was very beautiful. When she saw that I liked this box, she gave it to me, and then I went home, and then cooked dinner."

Gong Qingyao thought of this, "Box?"

Lu Yongyi the side said, "You still have this box at home?" If there was indeed a problem they had to wait for Gong Qingyao to see, Shi Cui immediately said, "Yes, I'll get it." After speaking, she quickly returned to the room.

After a while, Shi Cui came out. She handed the box to Gong Qingyao, "Miss Gong, look at it. This is the box."

Shi Cui looked at the box, "It's strange. Yesterday I clearly thought this box was very beautiful. Why look at it today and it doesn't seem so good?"

Gong Qingyao took the box. It was indeed a very ordinary wooden box with a very simple pattern. Gong Qingyao input a trace of profound energy into the box.

"This box seems to be very ordinary." Lu Xingwang was a little curious, could this be the cause? A simple box made Shi Cui fell in a coma for so long?

Gong Qingyao opened the box, and then took out the cushion inside. There was a small buckle underneath. Gong Qingyao broke it open, and it really contained something inside, which was a black talisman.

"Is this a black talisman?" Lu Yongyi said.

Shi Cui's face turned black. Under normal circumstances, someone who would put something under the cushion of the box was obviously deliberate, but she saw this black talisman for the first time in her life, "Aren't talismans all yellow?"

It was no surprise that Lu Yongyi family was shocked when they saw the black talisman paper. There was not only one type of talisman paper in this world, but also four other colors of talisman paper. This black talisman was one of them. People usually use yellow talisman more often. Most of the black talisman paper was used to invite yin.

Gong Qingyao opened the black talisman, and there was indeed a trace of yin inside, the same yin energy that was in Shi Cui's body.

Gong Qingyao ran her profound energy and recited a few scriptures silently. The black talisman paper ignited, and everyone was surprised to find that after the black talisman paper burned out, no dust was left behind. It seemed to have disappeared out of thin air.

Seeing this, Shi Cui knew that it was someone else deliberately harming her, "I'll go to Liang Hongmei for an explanation."

"Don't be too rushed." Lu Yongyi quickly grabbed Shi Cui.

Gong Qingyao took the box, and then got up, "Go."

Everyone was taken aback. What? Gong Qingyao wanted to go together?

Lu Yongyi quickly changed his tone, "Mom, you lead the way."

"Okay." Shi Cui ran next door angrily. She and Liang Hongmei knew each other since they were young, and later became neighbors after getting married. They always live in harmony, so she didn’t know why Liang Hongmei was harming her.

Shi Cui knocked on the door very hard. After a while, a middle-aged woman opened the door. She has a pair of slender eyes with drooping tails, giving people a weak and pitiful feeling. Of course, this was ordinary people’s impression. In the eyes of Gong Qingyao on the other side, this person's surrounding air was a little grey, she obviously had done something bad.

Shi Cui was very angry, and her voice became louder, "Liang Hongmei, why did you harm me? I was your friend."

A dodge flashed in Liang Hongmei's eyes, "What are you talking about?"

"Oh , isn't this Shi Cui? You woke up already? You didn't know, on the day when you were in a coma, our family Hongmei was so worried that she was thinking of visiting you several times." A middle-aged male voice appeared later.

Lu Xingwang stood at the end. Liang Hongmei didn’t go to their house to see Shi Cui openly. It was obviously a manifestation of a guilty conscience. Thinking of this, Lu Xingwang’s tone was cold. "What do you mean?" 

The middle-aged man walked out, "Let's just come in and talk about it."

Lu Xingwang said, "Niu Tianqun, don't be so fake. Why Shi Cui fainted, didn't you know why in your heart?"

It was early morning, and because of the noise many residents around heard them, and they all came out to see what happened. Liang Hongmei saw people coming around and said immediately, "Big Brother Lu, what are you talking about? We don’t understand."

"That's right, let's talk about it inside." Niu Tianqun said.

Lu Yongyi pointed to the box in Gong Qingyao's hand and said, "Aunt Liang, do you know this box?"

Liang Hongmei glanced at the box and said, "Well, I remember. I saw your mother liked it yesterday so I gave it to her."

"What did you put inside the box? I treat you so good, why are you against me?" Shi Cui asked the two questions in a row.

There were more and more onlookers, and they started to point at them. Liang Hongmei looked at a loss, "What are you talking about? Didn't you open it at the time? Wasn’t this box empty?"

It didn't seem like Liang Hongmei lied. Shi Cui was really thinking at this moment that maybe Liang Hongmei didn't know about the talisman.

Gong Qingyao knew that it would be useless to ask this question, so she asked, "Where did the box come from?" 

Liang Hongmei saw her when Gong Qingyao came just now. In fact, when Lu Yongyi came back yesterday, Liang Hongmei knew that Lu Yongyi had brought a beautiful girl back, but this time she pretended to see Gong Qingyao for the first time, "This is?"

Gong Qingyao was too lazy to talk nonsense with her. She drew a trace of grievance from the thousand-year cold iron to Liang Hongmei and Niu Tianqun and asked again, "Where did the box come from?" 

Lu Yongyi and the others looked at Liang Hongmei, who was a little pitiful suddenly looked innocent, "I bought it."

Gong Qingyao asked again, "Did you know about the black talisman inside?"

A struggling color flashed across Liang Hongmei's face, but she quickly said, "I know, I found someone to buy it."

Although Shi Cui guessed that it was Liang Hongmei's action, but hearing Liang Hongmei admitted it made her inevitable a little sad. The two of them had always been in a good relationship, "Why are you doing this?!"

Liang Hongmei suddenly became hysterical, "Why are you doing so well now? Before you got married, you were not as good as me, you were not as beautiful as me, your family conditions were not as good as me, and your academic performance was not as good as me. I got married and found someone honest. I thought that Shi Cui would be inferior to me forever, but I didn’t expect Shi Cui to be so happy after marriage. She had a son that has promising future, and suddenly became the most popular person here. Why?"

Shi Cui did not respond, "But didn't you also have a good life?"

Liang Hongmei's eyes were bloodshot, and there seemed to be no trace of pitifulness left on her face. "I had a good life? Yes, I was married to the richest person here, but, within a few years, my father-in-law passed away after losing all the money, and my husband just eats here and waits to die. Do you know how my life is? I have to make money to support my family and also do all the housework. Even the children I have don’t have prospects as good as yours!"

Shi Cui felt uncomfortable after listening to these words, "Just because I've lived better than you, you were hurting me?" 

Liang Hongmei's eyes flushed, "Yes, why would you live better than me?"

One of the most destructive things in this world was jealousy. Gong Qingyao asked again, "Where did you buy the black talisman?" 

Liang Hongmei looked at Gong Qingyao, her expression was not as excited as before. "I was in a bad mood a few days ago. I met an old man while walking on the road. He told me that he could help me solve the thing that has been annoying me. I said I don’t want a person to exist in this world, can he solve it? He then took out a black talisman and put it in the box before giving them to me." Actually, that was the first time that Liang Hongmei saw a black talisman, but although she thought that the black talisman looked a little weird and crooked, if it could realize her wish she wouldn’t look at them anymore.

Liang Hongmei went on to say, "I thought this box was too ordinary at the time. The old man told me that he had cast a spell on it. The first person besides me who saw this box would find it beautiful. I didn't believe it at the time. He said if I succeeded, I need to give him a hundred yuan, but if I didn’t succeed, no need give the money, and I can take the box for free."

"I didn't expect Shi Cui to really like this box. I took the opportunity to give it to her. At night, I heard that she fainted, and I knew it was done. I didn't expect Shi Cui to wake up again. "Liang Hongmei gritted her teeth when she said this.

Lu Yongyi asked, "So you know the function of this black talisman?"

"Of course I do." Liang Hongmei said, "The old man said that it will make people die in drowsiness without pain." 

The last sentence was said so arrogantly that it directly angered Lu Xingwang, "You vicious woman!"

Gong Qingyao reached out and stopped Lu Xingwang, and then asked, "Where is the old man now?"

"I met on the road that day. I haven't seen him again after that." Liang Hongmei thought for a long time, "Yes, he only said that if it succeeded, I need to give him a hundred, but he didn't tell me where to give it."

This person probably never thought of Liang Hongmei’s money. Gong Qingyao knew that she wouldn’t get any more information. She felt a little disappointed. 

Lu Yongyi saw this and asked, "What does the old man look like?" 

Liang Hongmei began to think again, "It's strange, I can’t remember what he looks like."

Gong Qing Yao looked at Lu Xingwang and Shi Cui, "What are you going to do with this?"

Shi Cui was sad and unable to say anything. Lu Xingwang on the side was quite angry, "Call the police and let them go to jail!"

Lu Yongyi with a clear mind asked, "Dad, do we have evidence?"

Lu Xingwang was taken aback, yes, the evidence, they couldn’t just take the box and say that someone attempted murder. After thinking for a while, Lu Xingwang also didn't know what to do, "Wouldn’t they get retribution if they do this?" It's really hateful.

The control on Liang Hongmei and Niu Tianqun was automatically released when the time came. Liang Hongmei realized what she had just said, and immediately burst into tears, "No, no, I was just under control. These words were not what I said, these I didn't anything."

However, at this moment, no one believed her. After Niu Tianqun found that he could move, he immediately walked out, facing everyone's onlookers, he raised his hand and slapped Liang Hongmei, "Oh, you vicious woman, I was blind to still be with you."

Gong Qingyao pull out some grievance again and gave it to the two of them, this time it was not to control them, but to make their lives a little bit uncomfortable in the future, such as having nightmares at night. 

After doing this, Gong Qingyao said , "Let's go." 

Lu Yongyi pulled Shi Cui and returned home. No one looked back at the farce behind them.

After entering the house, Lu Yongyi asked tentatively, "Liang Hongmei told the truth so easily just now. Was it because of you?" It can be seen that Lu Yongyi was very dissatisfied with Liang Hongmei's actions this time. Lu Yongyi, who was usually very polite, actually just call an older person by name directly.

"Yeah." Gong Qingyao admitted.

Although they were not able to brought them to justice, Lu Xingwang knew that so many neighbors around had heard what Liang Hongmei said, so it would be difficult for them to gain a foothold in the future. Thinking of this, Lu Xingwang felt relieved again. "Thank you, Master."

"It's nothing." Gong Qingyao returned to the room and took out her luggage.

Upon seeing this, Lu Yongyi asked, "Are you planning to leave?" 

"Yeah." Gong Qingyao originally planned to leave after breakfast, but she didn't expect to see the black talisman. This thing was resolved, naturally she was going to leave.

"Then I will return to the capital with you." Lu Yongyi said.

Lu Xingwang looked at Lu Yongyi. At this time, Lu Yongyi wanted to send Gong Qingyao back, but Shi Cui didn't seem to be in a good condition. Lu Xingwang was a bit tangled for a while.

"No need, take good care of your mother." Gong Qingyao left after speaking.

Lu Yongyi was indeed worried about Shi Cui, so he nodded when he heard the words, "Then be careful on the road." 

After Gong Qingyao left, Lu Xingwang sighed. He felt it was a pity that his child did not accompany Gong Qingyao to the capital.

Lu Yongyi guessed his father's thoughts, smiled, but said nothing.

Soon after getting in the bus, Gong Qingyao received the money transferred from Lu Yongyi, a total of 200,000 yuan. This money was probably saved by Lu Yongyi for a long time. Gong Qingyao turned off the phone, closed her eyes and started to rest.

It was five o’clock in the afternoon when she arrived at the capital. Gong Qingyao just took a bath and changed her clothes when she received a call from Ai Xiaoyun, "Qingyao, where are you now? There is a big party in the evening, and Mr. Gao said to call you too."

"At home." Gong Qingyao said.

"Then I will pick you up right away." After speaking, Ai Xiaoyun paused, and then asked in a low voice, "Are you going?"

"Go." Gong Qingyao really didn't like this kind of activity in the past, but just now, Ai Xiaoyun said that this party was a large-scale party. Gong Qingyao was short of money. She needed to find a place to make money. Large-scale parties were bound to have rich people.

"Okay, then you wait for me at home, and I will be there soon." Ai Xiaoyun finished speaking and hung up the phone.

The company signed by Gong Qingyao was called Liren Company. It had only been established five years ago. The company’s most popular star was Jiang Xiaonan, who can barely be considered a second-rate celebrity. The good thing was that Liren used all the good resources on her.

The company’s chairman was Gao Guangpeng. Gong Qingyao had never seen him before. To be precise, she hadn’t been to the company since occupying her current body. The entire Liren management, Gong Qingyao currently only knew Ai Xiaoyun and Gao Guangpeng.

Ai Xiaoyun soon arrived downstairs and she saw Gong Qingyao wore a white coat and a pair of ordinary slacks on her body. Plus a pair of white sneakers, "You wear this to the party?"

"Otherwise?" Gong Qingyao got into the car.

Ai Xiaoyun sighed and said to the driver in the front row, "Let's go."

Gong Qingyao leaned on the seat, while Ai Xiaoyun on the side said, "By the way, when we came back from Hongyan Village that time, your fans came to pick you up.”

Gong Qingyao remembered that the first time she came back from Ye Mountain, there were fans of You Xingyu at the airport. They called this pick up service.

Gong Qingyai did not look surprised, Ai Xiaoyun changed the subject, "You see Weibo yet?"


"This reality show recording, you and Lu Yongyi were quite hot, I counted there were six topics about you, but only a small number of netizens could accept your master character. As for Lu Yongyi…" Ai Xiaoyun pondered for a while before saying, "I suggest you not fall in love for the time being."

Gong Qingyao:? ? ?

Seeing Gong Qingyao's expression, Ai Xiaoyun could be sure that her master currently did not have this thought.
