Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation


As soon as Lan Shao had said those words, the scorching furnace-like heat dissipated and he sighed in relief. However, his face would turn into an ugly shade whenever he remembered how he had been dominated by the little lolita's tyrannical abuse.

"Remember, you have to kneel and kowtow as you go out." The little Vermillion Bird grinned as she stared at the unpleasant look on Lan Shao's face. Her large, vivid eyes were flashing with wickedness. "If you do anything that provokes my displeasure, you can forget about leaving this place today."

Lan Shao clenched his fist tightly. There was a fiery anger in his heart which felt like it could burst at any moment. He finally took a deep breath before he slowly knelt down and threw himself onto the ground.


He turned around and kowtowed once. He then began to kowtow at every step as he made his way to the gate.

The people who had accompanied Lan Shao did not even dare to breathe too heavily as they carefully followed him out of the Medicine Manor.

Even though the Medicine Manor's courtyard was deserted, there was quite a number of people outside on the street.

At that moment, the pedestrians who had been rushing about could not help but stop in their tracks. Their astonished gazes were turned towards the middle-aged man who was kowtowing with every step as he made his way out of the Medicine Manor. Some had even begun to suspect that their vison had gone wrong.

What had they just seen?

The Master of the Lan family was actually bowing and scraping out of the Medicine Manor? What... What on earth is this?

Lan Shao seemed to sense their shocked stares as he knelt on the center of the street and took a fierce yet deep breath. He then exclaimed, "I, Lan Shao, am a living animal! I'm worse than a dog or a pig. Even animals are more outstanding than I!"

Everyone was dumbstruck, they could not understand what had gotten into Lan Shao to have caused him to kneel on the ground and loudly humiliate himself!

Had he been upset in some way?

"After offending me, did you think that I would let you off so easily?"

The little Vermillion Bird was standing in the courtyard while she looked at the middle-aged man who was bowing and scraping in the middle of the street. There was a wicked smile on her tender and adorable features. She produced a pill from her lapel and fiercely crushed it into powder.


A wind suddenly rose from her sleeves and whirled the powdered pill along until it reached Lan Shao. However, at this moment, Lan Shao had not noticed this at all. He took a deep breath and promptly inhaled the powdered pill into his digestive system.

Wei Yiyi looked at the little Vermillion Bird who was next to her and shook her head before she stared at Lan Shao with pity once again.

Did he really think that that would have been enough?

This little demon would not possibly let him off so easily! Even though she does not know the effects of that pill, she knows very well that the little Vermillion Bird's pill had come from Gu Ruoyun. Its effects would not be normal at all.

"Help me up."

Lan Shao's eyes sank as he raised his hand and ordered the person behind him to assist him.

"Yes, Master."

The guard behind him quickly tried to help Lan Shao to his feet. However, before he could touch Lan Shao, a gust of wind slapped against the guard's chest with a thud. A loud laugh then burst into the air.


Lan Shao laughed maniacally. His smile was malicious and terrifying as he said, "Do you all know why I've just called myself an animal? It's because I've never even spared my own brothers! If I had not led the rival family of my good sister-in-law here, they would not have lost their lives! That poor nephew of mine would also never have been labeled as an omen of bad luck!"

Chapter 1091: The Foolish Lan Shao (2)

Like thunder in a clear sky, everyone was shocked to the core.

Even the members of the Lan family were dumbfounded. No one ever thought that Lan Shao would fly into madness in public and that he would even spout such drivel.

"Hmph, the position as Master of the Lan family is mine! If my younger brother was still alive, I would never have obtained the Lan family! Unfortunately, he still has a son. Even though that little b*stard Lan Ge doesn't have any cultivation abilities, he's naturally intelligent so father had always preferred him to me. In addition, Father has taken even more pity on Lan Ge after my younger brother's death. If I had not spread the word about him bringing bad luck to his parents, those old farts of the Lan family would never have joined forces to force my father to send that piece of dog turd away! Indeed, the moment that little half-breed had been sent away, I, the only descendant of the Lan family, was naturally given the position of Master of the Lan family!"

"This seat belongs to me, no one else can take it away! Only I, Lan Shao, am worthy enough to become Master of the Lan family. Anyone who stands in my way shall die!"

Lan Shao's eyes turned bloodshot and he looked as if he could swallow a person whole. His eyes were filled with hatred and anger.

"This is bad!"

The guards that Lan Shao had brought along were his trusted aides. When they heard their Master exposing everything which had happened in the past few years, their expressions changed drastically.

One guard immediately reacted and quickly raised his bo staff before smacking Lan Shao's shoulder with a loud thud.

The pain from his shoulder brought Lan Shao back to his senses. He then bellowed furiously, "You had the audacity to strike me?"

There was no one in Main City who dares to strike him!

However, aside from that little girl from the Medicine Manor, someone else has dared to use a bo staff on him. That person was truly digging his own grave!


Upon hearing this, the guard who had used the bo staff quickly threw himself to ground as his forehead dripped with cold sweat. "Please forgive my crime, Master, you were babbling nonsense a while ago so I had no choice. I had done that to bring you back to your senses."

Babbling nonsense?

Lan Shao was shocked. It was at that moment when everything he had just said began to echo back into his mind.

His face turned completely white while his eyes were filled with terror.

What just happened to me? Why couldn't I stop myself form confessing to all my wicked deeds in brought daylight?

I'm finished!

This time, I'm truly finished!

"Tsk, tsk. I never thought that Lan Shao would have committed so many wicked deeds." The little Vermillion Bird shook her head. However, her adorable little face was clearly relishing in his disaster. "It seems that your life is soon at its end, brat."

Wei Yiyi glanced at the Vermillion Bird and curled her lips. "What pill was that?"

The Vermillion Bird pursed her lips as she replied, "Not too long ago, Master had refined this pill. When this pill is consumed, that person would lose consciousness and confess every wicked deed they have ever done over the past few years. The most terrifying bit is that when they wake up, they will remember everything they had said!"

At that point, she blinked as her smile grew even more wicked.

"Of course, this is a symptom he would have after consuming the pill! However, Master had added a small adjustment later on — that some repercussions would occur after this pill has been used."

"Repercussions?" Wei Yiyi shook and asked suspiciously.

"The repercussion from this pill is that from now on, Lan Shao will never be able to lie! If he tells a lie, he will suffer the agony of having his soul torn to pieces."

Chapter 1092: The Foolish Lan Shao (3)

Three black lines instantly appeared on Wei Yiyi's forehead.

Based on her understanding of Gu Ruoyun's character, she was a sensible person. What could have caused her to actually research and produce a pill like this?

However, what Wei Yiyi was unaware of was that Gu Ruoyun had no intentions of researching a pill like this. What Gu Ruoyun had initially wanted to discover was an alternate power source to speed up the effects of a pill! However, because the experiment had failed, it had produced this failed result!

Of course, if the members of First City were to find out that Gu Ruoyun could refine pills without following a pill formula, they would plunge into a sensation.

Regardless of whether she was successful or not, at least she managed to invent a pill! People with this kind of talent would be considered as a peerless genius in First City, no one could be compared to that!

At the Lan family residence.

An old man was sitting on the floor of the cultivation chamber. His eyes no longer carried their initial benevolence. Instead, they were now sharp, cold, and distant.

"Lan Shao, did you really cause the deaths of your younger brother and sister-in-law?"

Lan Shao shivered violently as he sensed the bubbling anger in the old man's heart. "Father, I've been framed."


As soon as he said those words, Lan Shao's body began to quiver. He felt as if a hand was tearing through his soul and it was so painful that he gasped. His face then turned pale.

The old man did not notice the peculiar look on Lan Shao's face and continued to speak with sunken, elderly features. "Can you explain to me then what you had meant when you said those things?" he asked icily.

"Father, I don't know either. All I could feel was my mind going blank and I then began to speak but I didn't hear the words which were coming out of my mouth."

What he said was true.

He was really unaware of what had actually happened. At that moment, his mind had gone blank and he could not hear what he had said at all.

Therefore, when he had given that explanation, that soul-tearing agony did not appear.

"I know." Suddenly, Lan Shao's eyes lit up. He then spoke angrily, "The members of Medicine Manor must have done this! The Master of Medicine Manor is a pill master so she must have other pills on hand. Perhaps they had used a pill to control me and made me say what they wanted to hear! Father, I've really been framed. How could I have been so cruel as to slaughter my own brother?"

Lan Shao had not felt anything peculiar but towards the end, the soul-tearing agony appeared once again. It was so painful that he nearly groaned.


Why is everything normal when I speak the truth but when I lie, I would suffer the agony of having my soul torn apart?

Lan Shao gritted his teeth at the thought and forced the groan back down his throat.

"The Medicine Manor?" The old man fell silent. His voice no longer carried its initial icy distance. "What's going on?"

"I don't know either." Lan Shao's entire being was filled with grief. "I only wanted to ask for an audience with Great Master Gu but I never expected her subordinates to be so snobbish. Not only had they looked down upon the Lan family, they even wanted the Lan family to hand over half of our property before they would pass my message to her."


An extreme pain rose within Lan Shao's body once again. It was so excruciating that he began to tremble continuously. His face was now as white as a piece of paper.

As it turns out, he could not tell a lie!

Each time he had lied, he would suffer this agony.

However, he had no choice but to endure it for now. He could not let his father notice any peculiarities!

"Her subordinates wanted the Lan family to hand over half our property?" asked the old man as he lifted his head and faced Lan Shao with an unreadable expression in his eyes.

Chapter 1093: The Foolish Lan Shao (4)

Lan Shao gritted his teeth fiercely and spat out forcibly, "Yes!"

"I understand. You may leave."

The old man gently shut his eyes and replied dispiritedly.

"I will take care of the matters surrounding Medicine Manor. You can forget about this matter."

"Yes, Father"

Lan Shao finally sighed with relief. He then joined his fist in parting before leaving the chamber.

Just as Lan Shao had turned around, the old man opened his eyes. A wave of disappointment clouded his gaze.

"Lan Shao, you are far too inferior compared to your younger brother. If it had not been for his accidental death and the pressure from those old fogeys in the clan, the position of Master of the Lan family would never have fallen on your shoulders! It's not because I am biased but because I am worried that you would destroy the entire Lan family."

As Lan Shao's father, how could he not understand his own son?

Besides, how could the aides of a pill master possibly demand half a portion of the Lan family estate in return for relaying a message?


The old man closed his eyes once again as a bitter smile hung on his face. He then gently exhaled and do not say another word.

Over the past few days, the entire Main City has been bustling with unmatched excitement.

Restaurants, tea houses, small street vendors, and everyone else has been discussing Lan Shao's actions in front of the Medicine Manor's gates! They never thought that the deaths of the Second Young Master and Young Madam of the Lan family years ago had been connected to Lan Shao. He would do anything to obtain the position of Master Lan!

Hence, Lan Shao was now the joke of Northern Block Territory.

However, this matter was soon glossed over by another huge issue!

According to the news, the genius girl who had risen to fame in the Medicine Sect's general meeting, Gu Ruoyun, had arrived in Main City a few months ago. She has also moved to the Northern Block Territory! Hence, all the big and small organizations have plunged into a sensation. The initially quiet Medicine Manor instantly become as busy as a marketplace.

However, no matter who had come to visit, they were all stopped outside the Medicine Manor's gates.

Even the most mysterious family amongst the Four Great Families of Main City had sent an elder from their clan. However, not only had he been unable to see the Master of Medicine Manor, he was not even allowed to set foot past their threshold.

The Medicine Manor then issued an announcement. In half a month's time, they will be holding a banquet and everyone who has reached the Martial Supreme rank or organizations who have Martial Supremes in their ranks may send their representatives to attend the banquet.

In the Northern Block Territory, the number of organizations who has Martial Supremes in their ranks was not a small one. Hence, many organizations began to make their preparations! As for those who did not have enough power, they could only watch in envy as the other families received their invitations.

After all, the Master of Medicine Manor was a pill master which was an existence that many wishes to win good favor with. Even the cultivators of First City could not possibly turn a blind eye to a pill master.

In all of Northern Block Territory, only the Jiang family and the Gu family did not show any sign of movement. Others could not help but wonder what the two families were up to. Could it be that they were not interested in the pill master at all?

Of course, what they did not know was that Gu Ruoyun, whom they have elevated to the status of a god, was now in the Jiang family residence, playing chess with the two old fogeys.

"Haha, Old Man Gu, you lose." Old Man Jiang burst into laughter. His bright and clear laugh echoed throughout every corner of the Jiang family courtyard before he continued, "Since you've lost to the Gu girl, you can step aside. It's my turn now."

Old Man Gu smiled and turned towards Gu Ruoyun, saying, "Gu girl, I never thought that not only are you exceedingly talented, you're good at chess too. Unfortunately, there are no males in the Gu family. Otherwise, I'd really like to kidnap you back to the Gu family residence."

He sighed gently as his face filled with regret.
