Chapter 75

For a moment, no one spoke in the deserted courtyard.

The winter wind was originally raging but was blocked by the walls of the courtyard, so the whistling hovered only in the corner of this courtyard, leaving a rare quiet courtyard.

Chen Fang felt a little relieved, fortunate, and a little disillusioned.

Jiang Liangchan’s heart on the other hand was stuffed and full of panic.

What did Chen Fang ask her just now?

“You are not the original Jiang Liangchan.”

“Who are you?”

Jiang Liangchan hoped that she had heard wrong, but reason told her that it was impossible.

Today, Chen Fang was so strange from beginning to end. This question was the evidence and proved to her that she was right.

Chen Fang already suspected that she was not the original owner.

She actually has been very worried about whether she would one day be found to be different from the previous Jiang Liangchan, not the original Jiang Liangchan.

But she did expect that the first one to see it was not Jiang Yunting, not mother, not father.

Instead, it was Chen Fang.

In an instant, countless speculations with multiplied speed flashed wildly from her mind.

What does Chen Fang want?

What would happen if she told him that he really wasn’t the original Jiang Liangchan?

Will he treat her as a demon?

After she cross into this world, she had heard gossip once.

A family in the capital suspected that their daughter was possessed by something as she suddenly behaved abnormally, behaving strangely.

So, the family invited the Taoist priest.

But the man who came to do the spell said his daughter had passed away long ago, leaving this bamboo spirit, taking his daughter’s body.

What appears to be his daughter was no longer her real daughter.

Later, the bamboo spirit occupied the body of that daughter and did something excessive things which brought a lot of shame to the family.

After that person struggled in every possible way, he suffocated his daughter who was occupied by the bamboo spirit.

Jiang Liangchan was listening to Jiang Yunting relayed this story and said that when that daughter died, her appearance looked very sad.

Jiang Yunting also sighed.

“Even if it’s possessed, no matter what, it’s his own daughter’s body, how can he do it?”

Jiang Liangchan was cold all over her body.

She was afraid that if it was her, she would end up like this.

Jiang Liangchan was rarely silent, but Jiang Yunting was busy sighing as he said that if she was just evil and not a bamboo essence. Another moment, he said that even if it was a bamboo essence, then what? After all, her body was still alive, that was still her daughter who was still alive.

Only Chen Fang said coldly, “for this family, it is more painful to keep a fake that spoils their daughter’s body than to die. What can we do with it?”

Jiang Liangchan at this juncture suddenly remembered this matter.

If it was her, Chen Fang probably thought the same thing.

A fake, what was the point of keeping it.

Figuring this out, Jiang Liangchan had only one thought in her head.

Don’t dare to admit it.

If she doesn’t admit it, she might be able to live for a while, but who knows what awaits her after she admits it.

Chen Fang had been watching her since the questioning.

She’s been silent for too long.

But he really wanted to know.

The idea had been hovering in his mind since he didn’t know when.

He was eager to ask who she really was.

Who was the person who made him go from being disgusted with her to finding her more and more endearing?

Who was she that has been by his side all this time?

If the surge inside him now was like, then who, exactly, has fallen into his heart?

Chen Fang gently asked, “Who are you?”

He has asked for the third time, and Jiang Liangchan dares not answer.

She subconsciously straightened her back.

The desire to survive kept her smiling in the midst of her panic.

It also keeps the mind running excellently.

Jiang Liangchan cleared her throat and looked bravely straight at Chen Fang: “Yes, that’s right.”

She swallowed and said, “I’m not the original Jiang Liangchan anymore.”

Chen Fang was not surprised and nodded, gesturing for her to continue.

Jiang Liangchan was very frank: “I am now a reformed and reborn Jiang Liangchan.”

Chen Fang: “….”

When the words come out, the more she said, the more she slip.

Jiang Liangchan’s words were right, powerful, and logical.

“Not only you, but I often ask myself, am I still the same person I used to be?”

“Yes and no. My physical body is still me, but my spiritual realm is different. I thank fate for giving me the opportunity to realize my previous mistakes early on, and for allowing me to adjust myself in a timelier manner to make up for my past mistakes and sins and be a new rich, democratic, honest and friendly Jiang Liangchan.”

The cold winter wind quietly passes this courtyard.

If not for the current atmosphere, Chen Fang would like to give her a round of applause.

Just with her courage and ability to speak blindly with her eyes open at this time.

Chen Fang felt that even if he changed a few more changes, he would be able to recognize her with his eyes closed.

Jiang Liangchan looked at Chen Fang apprehensively.

She now kind of hates Chen Fang.

He really has the material to be an emperor, his happiness and anger were not visibly written on his face like other little cuties, such as Jiang Yunting.

What was this look on his face?

Was this believing her or not believing her?

You should say something!

Later when he ascended to the throne, his eunuchs and concubines serving must be super miserable, not understanding what he wants!

Jiang Liangchan spat indignantly amidst the tension.

Chen Fang was not a cutie whose emotions were written on his face, but unfortunately, both Jiang Yunting and Jiang Liangchan were.

Chen Fang understood the grumbling in her eyes.

He, who doesn’t deal with girls very much has a hard time trying to figure her out.

Though it was clear that she was blatantly lying and cheating him.

Why could she be so righteous in blaming him again?

This bit of confusion did not affect Chen Fang’s thinking, he slowly and methodically picked out two small phrases in Jiang Liangchan’s words just now.

“Your physical body is still you, but your spirit is no longer the same?”

So you mean, your body hasn’t changed, but you’re not you anymore?

This was the second half of his sentence which he wanted to say directly.

But the words didn’t come out of his mouth.

Because he inadvertently saw Jiang Liangchan’s calm eyes, tense back up.

And under the cuffs of her long sleeves, her pair of hands were so tense that they were almost wrung until they were white.

She was afraid.

She was so scared.

Chen Fang sighed softly.

The second half of the sentence that came to his lips was changed to.

“Then this is a fortunate thing for the house.”

Jiang Liangchan did not expect to get through so easily and was finally relieved and had time to focus on other things.

For example, Chen Fang seems to have taken her to break into someone else’s house.

Although the yard looks overgrown, she doesn’t know how long someone has lived in, but it was someone else’s yard after all so it’s better to leave as soon as they finished. It’s bad to be here for a long time.

Jiang Liangchan was about to tell Chen Fang for them to leave, but she hadn’t even opened her mouth yet when her heart suddenly burst into pain.

It was as if something, desperately, was being pulled out from the heart.

She could even hear something crackling and snapping in her heart.

One by one, her nerve seemed to be trying to crack open, and forcibly plucked her heart out.

It hurts so much.

Chen Fang originally wanted to take her inside to rest, it was too cold outside in the winter.

But just as he found the key, and turn, he saw Jiang Liangchan crouched in a ball on the ground, her face was pale like enduring some severe pain.

His expression changed and he scrambled to crouch down after her, asking anxiously.

“What’s wrong with you?”

Jiang Liangchan wanted to answer him but could not speak.

Fortunately, the sharp pain comes and goes quickly.

Not a moment later, Jiang Liangchan felt the burst of pain in her heart gradually stop.

She tries to straighten up her body and finds that it does not hurt anymore before she lets out a long breath.

Chen Fang was not as relaxed as she was, his brow knitted tightly, and asked her.

“What happened to you just now?”

Hearing his question, Jiang Liangchan was also confused.

“I don’t know what’s wrong, I feel like my heart was being pulled as if someone is trying to yank something away.”

She touched her heart, from the pain earlier to the refreshing feeling now, it was as if the world had changed in an instant, and she felt a lot more reinvigorated as if the weeds now look more pleasing to look at.

The speaker has no intention, but the listener has an intention.[1]

Jiang Liangchan did not know what was going on, but Chen Fang knows.

This was the guide that those Taoists left on her just now.

Most of the Taoist priests invited by Jiang Yunting today were paid and could be called swindlers.

But among them, there were two Taoist priests who were not very famous but were actually very capable.

The prey they set their eyes on, almost never escapes.

The important thing was that those two people were not only capable, but also vicious, they pay attention to killing and do their best, and they like to torture their prey.

Those who fall into their hands do not have a good end.

The reaction of Jiang Liangchan just now shows that the two Taoists have noticed that there were differences outside the Jiang mansion today.

Fortunately, he arrived just in time and Jiang Liangchan also happened to be out of the house, so he was able to bring Jiang Liangchan out early and did not let the two Taoist priests meet Jiang Liangchan and have a chance to recognize what the anomaly in the house actually was.

But these two Taoist priests were really good.

Even before, she was just standing outside the walls of the Jiang residence, and in that short period of time, the Taoist priest had already put the guide on her.

If this guide was not removed, the two Taoist priests would sooner or later follow to find her.

Or maybe, the two Taoists were already on their way here.

After Chen Fang thought of these, he immediately said.

“Come with me, I’ll take you to a place.”

Jiang Liangchan did not expect Chen Fang would bring her to a temple.

This temple was not large, in addition to a few small monks chanting sutras and sprinkling, there was almost no one else.

Chen Fang took her straight in and found a master who hangs the dharma.

Jiang Liangchan stood at the back and didn’t know what Chen Fang was saying to the Master but after a while, the Master beckoned to her.

“Benefactor, please come with me.”

Jiang Liangchan followed him to the back of the temple.

Behind the temple, there was actually a huge waterfall.

In the middle of winter, everywhere was frozen, and this waterfall was not an exemption.

But the amazing thing was that the other waterfalls were frozen, they were still icicles.

Only in this waterfall, the ice surface was flat and level, like a huge water mirror hanging on the stone surface.

Inexplicably, Jiang Liangchan stood here and felt an extraordinarily peaceful and reassuring feeling.

The Master did not chant the Buddha’s name. He was calm and cordial like an ordinary person, he gently asked.

“Just now benefactor Chen told me that he wanted to ask for peace for you. But when I see the benefactor’s face, it seems to be more than that. After descending into this world, do you still have many doubts in your heart?”

Jiang Liangchan’s brain exploded.

He just said, ‘after descending into this world’.

He knew she was not from this world.

The Master smiled plainly as if what he had just said was something more than ordinary.

Jiang Liangchan trembled and asked, “Master, do you know, why I am here?”

The Master gently shook his head: “There are too many subtleties in the world, and I am not able to know.”

Jiang Liangchan asked again: “Then what is my fate in this life? Can I change the established fate? Or will I go back to the original track no matter how hard I try?”

Her first reaction just now was to say, could she break through the destiny destined in the book, or could she change it?

But she found that it seems that words like crossing into a book, inexplicably disappear after reaching her mouth.

There seemed to be something that would not allow her to say it.

The Master closed his eyes slightly and opened them again slowly.

“Everything in the world is changing. Benefactor is not from this world, so the fact that she is here means that everything is unpredictable. Since everything is uncertain, it can be changed naturally.”

*****

*****

When she left, the Master drew a peace amulet but did not let her take it with her.

He asked Jiang Liangchan to hold the peace talisman flat in her hand and did not know what he did but the peace talisman turned into a light, in her hand as Jiang Liangchan watched.

Jiang Liangchan was surprised: “Isn’t a peace amulet worn on the body? How come your peace amulet is so unusual?”

The Master put his hands together.

“The ordinary peace talisman is indeed worn on the body. But the person who asked for it had a request. He said that he was afraid that the benefactor would be careless and drop the peace talisman, so he asked me to apply the peace talisman to the heart. From then on, the benefactor would not have to be afraid. You are no different from ordinary people even if someone tries to check something unusual on you.”

This means that no matter what those Taoists or others do, they would not treat her as a demon when they meet her again. No matter how they check, they could only feel the breath of the world’s indigenous people from her.

Jiang Liangchan breathed a sigh of relief.

After the Master did the spell, Jiang Liangchan thanked him again and again before she left the temple.

Chen Fang was already waiting for her outside.

Seeing her running out with a smile on her face, Chen Fang also let out a slight sigh of relief and greeted her.

Jiang Liangchan came over happily and gave him a strong pat on the shoulder.

“Chen Fang! You’re so kind, you even invited the Master to save me. Master is so powerful, he’s definitely a high-level person.”

Chen Fang raised his eyebrows: “You mean, the master really saved you?”

Jiang Liangchan: “???”

Wait.

She senses that there seems to be a loophole.

Chen Fang: “So, you really lied to me this morning when you said you were the Jiang Liangchan from before?”

Jiang Liangchan: “…”

Chen Fang is really first-class in catching logic holes.

However, she was really happy right now.

She got the peace amulet, and the Master himself stamped that she could completely change her fate in this world.

In other words, she doesn’t have to die if she works to change the plot, and the Jiang family would not repeat their previous fate.

In just one day, the willow was darkened, and got the double life that had fallen in her life.

This great news in the sky made her whole mood very open.

Looking at Chen Fang again, he looked very pleasing to the eye.

She has now understood.

In fact, Chen Fang has long known that she was not the original Jiang Liangchan.

So in the morning, he first took her away from Jiang’s house where there were Taoist priests.

Then, after she denied it, Chen Fang found out that the Taoist priest at the Jiang family must have done something to her but still brought her here and asked for the peace talisman from the Master for her.

And he was also very considerate, afraid that she would lose the peace amulet, he requested the master to put it into her heart so that she could permanently protect her safety at any time.

Chen Fang’s intention was clear, he has saved her twice in a row.

Jiang Liangchan’s heart was filled with tenderness and was touched.

Today, she went out of the house to save Chen Fang.

Chen Fang came back to save her.

I’m here to save you.

Yet you come to my rescue.

What does this mean?

This shows that they treat each other as brothers.

At this moment, Jiang Liangchan felt that their friendship had reached its peak.

She was very touched and even kind of wanted to pay her respects.

Jiang Liangchan was immersed in her thoughts.

Chen Fang walked next to her and asked, seemingly without thinking.

“You’re finally willing to admit it? Then who are you?”

Jiang Liangchan already knew it from the master. She couldn’t talk about transmigration.

She smiled and said, “I am a reincarnation of a fairy, who has come to save all beings.”

Chen Fang gave her a look and said, “Who are the beings?”

Immediately following the next sentence.

“That sounds pretty miserable.”

Jiang Liangchan calmly swallowed the offer of worship.

Okay, never mind.

A good friendship is always short-lived.
