Chapter 28 If She Won't Marry, You Will! (Part 1)
Xiang Lei was a villain when he was alive. Because of rxpe and murder, and the circumstances were particularly horrible, he got sentenced to death. However, he didn’t get better after death. In the past few years, he has bullied the lonely ghosts around him and even ate ghosts before. That is why his spiritual power is so strong.
The beautiful wife that Xiang Lei took fancy is almost gotten in hand but now has slipped away. In a fit of rage, Xiang Lei came to snatch her. Regardless of whether she is married or not, he would take her away if he saw her.
From childhood to adulthood, his family gave him everything he wanted, and there was nothing he couldn't get so Xiang Lei is used to being overbearing. However, he never expected that there would be someone fiercer than him here! Xiang Lei got slapped back a few steps by the brick and had no choice but to let go of the bride in his hand. He turned to look at Gu Ye apprehensively and is stunned speechless with what he saw.
The person in front of him is a young man with red lips and white teeth, looking beautiful and delicate. Now because of anger, the young man’s face is slightly red, and his pale skin looked dewy and tender, making him look even more beautiful than the bride. Xiang Lei is a bastard and doesn’t have gender preferences. When he saw Gu Ye, he became excited. He pointed at Gu Ye's nose, and said excitedly, "If she won't marry, you’ll will!"
Gu Ye laughed out of anger, gritted his teeth, and forced out a sentence, "I think you wanted your soul to be blasted to smithereens!"
Just now, Gu Ye simply wanted to beat the ghost up, so he attacked without using any spells.
Xiang Lei didn't know that he had completely pissed off Gu Ye. He is absorbed in checking Gu Ye out. His face is good-looking, and his body is also nice. The more he looked, the more satisfied he are. "Don't think that you can resist me after learning a little Taoism skill. When I was alive, no one dared to mess with me. I have eaten several Taoist priests like you!"
"Heh!" Gu Ye sneered and took out a cinnabar pen from his pocket. He drew a few strokes on the brick, and the golden aura instantly covered the whole brick. Gu Ye tested the weight in his hand and think that the brick felt right in his hand. Next, he rushed forward and smacked Xiang Lei’s face directly without saying a word.
When Xiang Lei saw the golden light from the brick, he became a little cautious. This kind of golden light is formed by the power of merit. Even ghosts are afraid of this kind of yang energy and holy thing. Xiang Lei subconsciously raised his arm to block it, but he didn't expect Gu Ye's brick to be effective like a sacred weapon for exorcising demons. His arm is like a crab's leg blocking a car, and it got smashed without resistance. The golden light spread throughout his body through his arms, and even his soul trembled. Xiang Lei screamed ARRRGGGHH in pain, scaring away all the wild ghosts who wanted to watch the excitement at the side.
Ordinary people can't hear his ghostly scream, but Gu Ye can hear it clearly. The voice is so horrible that it hurts people's eardrums. Gu Ye shoved the brick into the bastard's mouth and said, "Shut up!"
Xiang Lei's teeth almost got smashed in by Gu Ye, so he is furious and wanted to kill Gu Ye. With a cold face, Gu Ye moved his fist without saying anything, hitting out like punching a sandbag, "You think you are amazing because you killed people before?! You think you are great because you got shot to death?! Eating ghosts is amazing?! How narcissistic you are!"
The black ghost aura on Xiang Lei's body is punched away by Gu Ye's repeated hits. There is a golden light on his fist, causing Xiang Lei's soul to tremble every time he got hit. He screamed in pain as if his soul is about to disappear in the next second, and his ghostly aura is dispersed. Every time he wanted to accumulate his aura again and is about to succeed, Gu Ye made him feel hopeless with another punch.
Liu Chao and Li Cui hugged each other, watching Gu Ye beating a ghost. They are trembling with fright, especially when Gu Ye raised his fist. They felt like wanted to step back a little, for fear of getting brushed by the golden light and getting their soul destroyed.
Gu Ye didn't stop until Xiang Lei's ghostly aura could no longer gather. Grabbing Xiang Lei's hair with one hand, he dragged Xiang Lei into his yard like dragging a broom. Seeing that the couple hadn't followed in yet, Gu Ye glared in the direction of the door angrily, "Come in, you two."
Terrified, Liu Chao and Li Cui quickly followed, and even help to close the broken wooden door of Gu Ye's house.
Gu Ye threw Xiang Lei's ghost on the ground like mud and stepped over him. Then, he moved a folding stool from the house and put it at the door before sitting there with a murderous look on his face.
Liu Chao who is being cued, trembled in fear.
"Go to your wife's house to make a fuss until the whole family can't sleep. No matter what method you use, just give them a good scare." Gu Ye drew a talisman for Liu Chao, "This talisman can strengthen your aura. Go and make a commotion, understand?"
The Li Cui who is being cued this time, hid behind Liu Chao in fear.
The corner of Gu Ye's mouth twitched. Is he that scary?!
"Go to that retard’s family to make trouble. Do you know how to move your corpse?"
The young couple looked confused and didn't understand why Gu Ye arranged it like this.
Gu Ye looked at the couple as if they are mentally handicapped, and thought to himself, ‘No wonder it was said on the Internet that people in love have low IQs’.
“You are already ghosts, do you deserve the word ghost if you don't haunt them? Make a fuss, make a fuss to your heart's content. Make them so frightened that they send Li Cui's body back at dawn. Whether her body can be sent back tomorrow depends on how the two of you perform tonight."
"Oh! Understood!" The couple finally understood. Under the threat of Gu Ye's gaze that says ‘Why are you still dawdling here, do you want to be beaten?’, they flew out like arrows leaving the bow.
Gu Ye looked at Xiang Lei again and made a finger sign in disgust. This kind of bastard, it's better to just destroy his soul.
At this moment, with a squeaking sound, the dilapidated wooden door is pushed open from the outside. Someone stood at the door and whispered, "Is anyone there?"
Gu Ye frowned, he is very upset to be interrupted by this unexpected visitor. Two men in black attire came to the yard and saw Gu Ye and Xiang Lei’s ghost lying on the ground in front of him. The young man who is walking in front couldn't hold back and asked, "What's the matter with you, why did you catch him into your home? We have been looking for him for several days! Did you also snatch away the soul of that female ghost?”
Gu Ye raised his eyebrows, dissatisfied with the interrogation, "What do you mean by snatching? The young couple originally wanted to be together. Isn’t there a saying that goes 'one would rather demolish a temple than a marriage'? Your master didn't tell you this fact?"
After being said that, the young man is speechless. It seemed logical.
The middle-aged man said with a sullen face, "There is no such thing as helping ghosts. It is a rule in the mystical art world to help people, not to help ghosts. The more you help, the more entangled you become. Didn't your master tell you this fact?"
Gu Ye looked at the men’s faces, and felt amused, "You are his master, right? No wonder your disciple speaks without a brain. It seems that you as the master don’t have a good brain either."
Gu Ye pointed to Xiang Lei who is lying on the ground, his soul had been beaten to the point of instability, "It's this retard who came to make trouble. People are married but he still comes to snatch the bride. You guys from Xuanshu Association, do your eyes grow on the soles of your feet? You can't even understand this logic?"
Being scolded, the little disciple’s face flushed red. He wanted to get angry but couldn't find a suitable reason. The more he thought about it, the more he felt that what Gu Ye said is reasonable. So he looked at his master, and said sullenly, "It seems that this ghost is really in the wrong.”
"Shut up! The point is not right or wrong, but rules!" The middle-aged man scolded his disciple, "Rules are rules!"
Gu Ye sneered, "Good children are taught askew by you like this. Let me tell you, child. Humans and ghosts are the same. Right and wrong, good and evil, you have to learn to judge for yourself. A bastard, whether it's a human or a ghost, is a bastard when doing bad things. If you want to beat a bastard, would you still consider whether it is human or ghost?"
The young man got taken aback by what Gu Ye said. After thinking about Gu Ye's words carefully, his eyes suddenly brightened. From the moment he entered the Taoism circle, everyone told him to obey the rules, or he would be punished by heaven. But today, Gu Ye opened the door to a new world for him. So it can be viewed like this! Very cool!
The middle-aged man looked at the little disciple's eyes and wished he could find a piece of tape to seal Gu Ye's mouth. This is simply misleading others’ disciples!
"You guys are looking for this thing, right? Here, catch it!" Gu Ye is happy to let people do the job. Raising his foot, he kicked Xiang Lei to the feet of the master and disciple like a football.
The middle-aged man saw that Gu Ye wanted to shift the responsibilities to them. This ghost has done a lot of evil so one could only destroy his soul (not imprisonment). Who would want to do such a thing? He quickly said, "There is an unwritten rule in our mystic arts circle. If you don't care about the matter, don't do anything about it. But if you want to take action, you must handle it to the end. Since you have already taken action, we won't interfere."
"Oh no, you guys are the official department, and I'm a passing vagrant."
With a smile on the corner of Gu Ye's mouth, he spread his hands and said cheerfully, "Handling these things is the job of your Xuanshu Association, you guys are paid for it. To use an analogy, the one who saves people is the Father. For me who casually saves people along the way, at most I can be regarded as a wild Father, you are real Fathers."
The middle-aged man’s face turned red and he stomped his feet angrily. What real father and wild father? He felt like he is being scolded!
After Gu Ye finished speaking, he moved his folding chair into the house and closed the door. He is too lazy to talk nonsense with them, so he returned to his bed and went to sleep. Tomorrow he still has to go shopping for the old man's grave visit; he is very busy.
The master and apprentice reluctantly collected Xiang Lei's ghost and took it back to deal with.
The little disciple looked at the closed door. He couldn't help but run over. Sticking himself against the crack of the door, he asked softly, "My name is Luo Huai, what's your name?"
Gu Ye narrowed his eyes and answered, "Gu Ye's younger junior brother, No. 2 Gu Ye."
"Master! He's that Gu Ye's younger brother! That Gu Ye who used forbidden techniques to save the people of a city! He's so handsome (attitude)!" The little disciple jumped around his master excitedly, "My idol! So amazing!"
"Shut up! That's a taboo in the circle. He doesn't obey the rules and often uses forbidden techniques. You are not allowed to learn from him!"
"Shut up! Don't mention that name!"
