Ye Cang almost slipped off the sofa and even though Shen Huai seemed much calmer than him, he was shocked too.

Ye Cang looked at the person opposite him with a dumbfounded look.

Although his appearance was totally different from that of Pei Ran, now that he was sitting, there was a certain resemblance.

He couldn’t help asking, “You weren’t…”

Ye Cang watched Pei Ran disappear in the ward with that white light. Although he hoped that Pei Ran would survive, under the circumstances at that time, the possibility was very low, otherwise Pei Ran would not have said that kind of last words.

Pei Ran paused and then said, “I don’t know much about this. I take it as a reward from God.”

After the initial shock, Shen Huai and Ye Cang gradually calmed down.

For Shen Huai it was easier to accept the reality than for Ye Cang. He hadn’t seen Pei Ran disappear with his own eyes. He was more immersed in the shock caused by Pei Ran’s identity.

But no matter what Pei Ran had gone through, he had saved the two of them in the end. He showed up voluntarily, so there had to be a reason.

With this in mind, Shen Huai relaxed.

It was only then, that he noticed Pei Ran´s hospital gown again and asked, “Where you reborn in the body of a patient?”

“No.” Pei Ran shook his head and said slowly, “Maybe it’s more appropriate to call it reshaping the body.”

When he finished, he coughed and smiled bitterly. This habit had followed him.

Both Shen Huai and Ye Cang were in a daze and obviously had not digested this information.

Pei Ran suppressed the itching of his throat and narrated everything that happened after he woke up.

The impact of the explosion in Qingyu County was very huge. Shen Huai and Ye Cang also heard about it, but they did not expect that Pei Ran was mistakenly regarded as one of the injured because there were many problems regarding this explosion, such as employing minors and many migrant workers without ID cards.

More than ten years ago, household registration information was not as perfect as it was today, which explained this situation. As a result, Pei Ran relied on the pity of all the mothers and sisters to complete his life’s experience. However, Pei Ran muddled along and went through the household registration information together with them.

Pei Ran originally intended not to bother Shen Huai, but to live alone. Although it would take some time to reintegrate into society after so many years of his death, Pei Ran was very confident about it.

Who would have known that his new appearance would help and hinder him at the same time. This face certainly helped him get a new identity, but because he looked too young, no one believed that he was already an adult.

According to Chinese law, underage orphans had to enter welfare homes or adoptive families. Pei Ran did not want to enter a welfare home and be supervised in everything. He did not want to enter some strange adoptive family either. Finally, after thinking about it, he could only find Shen Huai.

Shen Huai: “…”

Ye Cang: “…”

Unexpectedly, the big boss had come to him for adoption?!

Shen Huai’s mood was very complicated. For a moment, he felt a lot of pressure and didn’t know what to say.

However, Pei Ran’s attitude was natural. “I asked someone to check it for me. If we sign a contract, you, as my agent, can bear the responsibility of guardianship.”

Hearing him say this, Shen Huai breathed a sigh of relief.

It was not difficult to do this. Shen Huai asked someone to send a contract over. Because the other party was Pei Ran, he directly took out the highest level of contract. But if he wanted to do it this way he needed to wait for Pei Ran´s identity registration information.

At this moment, Shen Huai carefully looked at Pei Ran’s face. Although it was beautiful and somewhat androgynous, Pei Ran´s temperament did not seem weak, but rather suited a different aesthetic taste.

With his keen mind of an agent, he quickly thought of how many waves Pei Ran would make if he entered the entertainment circle.

He couldn’t help asking, “Do you still want to star in movies?”

Pei Ran was reading the contract. In his early years, Hong Kong always used traditional Chinese characters, so he was not used to reading simplified Chinese characters.

Hearing Shen Huai´s words, he looked up, but unexpectedly hesitated for a moment.

Pei Ran got seriously injured during a filming accident. Although he didn’t die on the spot, the rescue thereafter brought him too much pain. Even though Pei Ran´s endurance was strong, he still couldn’t bear it in the end.

This kind of pain went deep into the bones, and there was no way to forget it even in the state of a ghost, which resulted in his coughing problem.

Pei Ran originally thought that he didn’t want to make any more movies, but now that he heard Shen Huai talking about it, he discovered that he still had a deep desire for filming.

He still wanted to go back to the set.

For him, there were so many things in the movie that made it impossible for him to let go.

After hearing Pei Ran´s words, Shen Huai was not surprised. There was a lot of information in his mind, and he already had some vague ideas about Pei Ran´s future career development.

Pei Ran calmed down his mind slowly and said to Shen Huai with a smile, “Alright, let’s not talk about this anymore. How are you doing now? Are you still able to see those shadows?”

When Pei Ran said this, Ye Cang remembered the ticking bomb on Shen Huai and hurriedly asked, “You said you only temporarily sealed Huai´s Ying Yang Eyes, which means there is still some hidden danger?”

Pei Ran frowned. “His situation is different from that girl´s and my understanding of the Ying Yang Eyes is also limited. For this kind of thing you can only find a professional.”

The feeling of hopelessness made Ye Cang depressed.

Pei Ran continued, “But I do know a few places where you can find someone to seal them.”

Ye Cang: “…”

“Can’t you speak without pausing?” he murmured with resentment. 

Pei Ran acted very innocent. “You are in such a hurry.”

Ye Cang: “…”

He suddenly had the impression that this elegant and admirable Pei Ran had a somewhat bad taste.

 

 

According to Pei Ran, he had known a Taoist priest in his early years that was very skillful. He was said to practice on this side of Dongjiang. It so happened that Shen Huai and Ye Cang originally planned to go to Fenghua Temple, which was also near Dongjiang. So when the three people were ready, they went to Fenghua Temple first.

They went early, and the Taoist temple was very quiet. The old Taoist who did a divination for them last time was still lying on the reclining chair. When he saw three people coming his way, he got up with a grunt.

“Are the three of you here for a talisman or divination?”

Hearing this familiar prologue, Shen Huai and Ye Cang couldn’t help laughing. Ye Cang leaned over and asked, “Taoist, do you still recognize me?”

The Taoist priest put on his presbyopic glasses and looked at them carefully. Then it was like he had suddenly woken up from a dream. “Ah—— yes it´s you!”

The old Taoist clearly remembered the two of them and hummed. “Since the last time the two of you left, this Taoist has been devoting himself to spiritual practice. Now my level is not the same, so do you want to have another divination?”

After everything that happened, Shen Huai knew that the old Taoist was very capable, so he just smiled and said, “No, the skills of the Taoist priest are excellent, we all know that.”

Hearing that he praised him so much, the Taoist proudly touched his beard, and then turned to him and asked, “What are your reasons for coming here today?”

Shen Huai paused and then said, “Have you ever heard of Yin Yang Eyes?”

As soon as he said this, the old Taoist’s expression suddenly changed. He looked at Shen Huai carefully for a long time and then whispered, “I see, I see.”

But Ye Cang was a little anxious. “Taoist, do you see any problems?”

The old Taoist touched his beard and said, “This gentleman is in a state of mental depression and there is a touch of blood between his eyebrows. This was caused by the attack after the original seal of his Ying Yang Eyes was undone. Fortunately, it was temporarily sealed, but in the long run, when the power of the seal weakens, I am afraid … “

The words of the old Taoist were not much different from what Pei Ran said.

Ye Cang asked hurriedly, “Can you seal him again?”

The old Taoist shook his head with a guilty  look on his face. “This one has little talent and knowledge, so I’m afraid I can’t help you.”

At this moment, Pei Ran, who had not yet spoken, asked, “Is your master still alive?”

The Taoist priest was stunned, but then nodded. “Yes.”

Pei Ran said, “Then can we see Mingjing in person and ask him to seal my friend?”

“My master can indeed seal this gentleman.” The old Taoist scratched his head, but without giving them a chance to feel happy, he added, “But my master has not come back since he went out to travel.”

The three of them frowned.

However, the old Taoist said, “Why don’t I ask my honorable teacher for you to see where he is now?”

Pei Ran was surprised and asked, “I have long heard that Taoism has the method of transmitting sounds thousands of miles away. Is it true?”

The Taoist priest coughed and whispered, “We, WeChat voice…”

Three people: “…”

They had come in contact with so many feudal superstitions recently that they had almost forgotten the power of science and technology.

The Taoist priest took out his mobile phone, found Mingjing on WeChat, and voice-called him directly. It didn’t take long before the call was connected.

However, no one spoke at the other end, but there was a sound of “Ding Ding Dang” like the intersection of gold and stone on the other end.

Before the old Taoist priest could call “Master”, an angry voice came from the other end, “Stinky Taoist!! You still play with your cell phone. Do you look down on me?”

Then, only a “boom” was heard, and the call was hung up.

The Taoist dialed again, but no one answered the call anymore.

The Taoist priest scratched his head and was somewhat embarrassed. “Well, Master’s cell phone is probably broken. I don’t think I will be able to contact him for a while…”

None of the three of them knew what to say.

Originally, they thought they were lucky to meet a powerful Taoist, but they didn’t expect such an accident would happen.

Ye Cang showed a look of disappointment, but the Taoist said, “But my elder martial brother happens to be in the temple today. He is gifted and has a profound understanding of Taoism. If you don’t mind, maybe we can ask him to have a look.”

This was really “There is no way out from this mountain pass but there is another village with a bright future around the corner.”

The old Taoist priest was enthusiastic and directly took the three of them to the back of the Taoist temple.

Behind the Taoist temple was the place where the Taoists of Fenghua Temple lived, which looked more quiet than before. The three of them followed the old Taoist through the middle patio, only to see a part of the mountain forest. There was a short mountain road, and there was a figure wearing a Taoist robe on top of the mountain.

The old Taoist led the group up, and the figure became more and more clearer.

They originally heard the old Taoist saying that this was his elder martial brother. They all thought that he would be an old Taoist, or a middle-aged man. But when they got closer, they discovered that he was a young man in his early twenties.

And now he was sitting cross-legged on top of the mountain, his two hands holding the mobile phone dancing fast.

“Elder Martial Brother?” the old Taoist whispered. 

He answered in a cold voice, “When I finish playing this game.”

Ye Cang, Shen Huai: “…”

Why did this Taoist temple make people feel it was more and more unreliable?!
