Mirror to Ward off Evil Spirits, Ghost Aura on Body
Nan Xun pursed her lips and asked little eight, “Should I tell Su Han about those strange things? Would it be irritated if I told her? Although the thing hasn’t followed me these days, I am still a little scared, always worried about when it will suddenly appear again.”
The void beast calmly replied, “Su Han is the child of fate in this world. How could she die so easily?”
Nan Xun couldn’t help but wonder, “Child of fate? Is it the same as a protagonist in a novel?”
“It’s possible to comprehend it in that way.”
“Why didn’t I see the child of fate in the last world?”
“Dear, it didn’t matter who was the child of fate in the last world, anyway, would have died in that war.”
“…Didn’t you said that the child of fate wouldn’t easily die?”
“That was a special case. Who would have expected that the Demon King would blow up his beast core and killed the child of fate as well.”
Nan Xun: …
“Little eight, if I didn’t come into these worlds, what would have happened to those villain bosses from those worlds?”
The void beast answered: “Naturally be killed by the child of fate.”
Nan Xun said meaningfully, “I see. You are competing against the child of fate for merits.”
The void beast immediately explained: “I’m doing a good thing too. You know, if the child of fate is against the villain boss, the villain boss will be the one that will be killed at the end. But I only need to eliminate the evil value of the villain boss. Once the evil value of the villain boss is eliminated, the heavens will not need the child of fate to kill him. I am saving his life, oh~”
She now knew that Su Han was the child of fate and had its halo, Nan Xun told her the strange things that happened to her during this period of time.
Su Han was silent for a long time after she listened.
She was already very certain that the thing was strong and was distorted with possessive desire towards Bai Mo. It wouldn’t let anyone insult her, nor tolerate men approaching her.
“Su Han, why do you want to investigate these things?” Nan Xun asked.
Su Han answered coldly: “I won’t allow any criminal to go unpunished, no matter what it is.”
Nan Xun thought: Su Han is a good police officer who serve the people with integrity. No wonder she was a child of fate.
Su Han tied a bell to Nan Xun’s hand and said, “This is a bell to ward off evil spirits. If there are evil spirits approaching, it will ring.”
Nan Xun was scared and refused.
Fuck, if this thing keeps ringing, she would be scared to death. It’s better to know nothing than to know there was nothing that she could do.
Su Han saw that she didn’t want to live or die. She changed it into an amulet for her. “That ghost is too obsessed with you. He will definitely come to your door again. This amulet was made by my grandfather before he died. There are only two of them. This one is for you. You remember to keep it close to you. Don’t leave. Today, I will go back home to get some exorcism items. Remember, no matter what happens, don’t leave this room until I come back.”
Nan Xun saw that she was very serious, and she nodded seriously in return. But she was curious. “Su Han, if I don’t leave this room, won’t the ghost try to look for me?”
Su Han replied: “I don’t know this ghost’s abilities, but since he dares to kill people, it certainly isn’t simple. No matter what kind of ghost he is, once he leaves his source, his abilities would become weaker even if he is a difficult and powerful ghost. If he could leave his source and stay elsewhere for a long time, it must be attached to a certain medium.”
“What is the source?” Nan Xun asked.
“It’s the place where he lived all his life. There is the aura of his life, so the ghost aura will be the strongest there.”
“Mo Mo, apart from Bai Xiye, have you ever had a boyfriend before? Or, do you know who likes you, or the type that is fond of you?” Su Han suddenly asked.
Nan Xun replied innocently, “I haven’t been in love before, but I have received a lot of confessions and love letters, about twenty or thirty, but I can’t remember who they were from.”
Su Han: …
Su Han left. Before she left, she stuck two pieces of talisman paper on the door. Nan Xun listened to her words. She didn’t go out this day. She was alone on the sofa watching TV.
When the phone rang, Nan Xun saw “big boss” displayed on the caller ID and couldn’t help but bend her mouth. She quickly picked up the phone and said, “Hello, Fu Mo.”
“Mo Mo, what are you doing?” The voice at the other end of the phone was a little low but soft.
Nan Xun almost already imagined that his deep eyes were smiling fully and looked especially sexy.
“I’m at home. Su Han won’t let me go out. By the way, Su Han is my new roommate. You know, she’s very powerful, her Su family are exorcists!”
The person on the other end of the line paused for a while, then asked, “Why won’t she let you go out?”
Nan Xun explained, “Su Han said that I have something following me. If I don’t go out, I’ll be fine.”
“Mo Mo, are you afraid?”
Nan Xun replied, “Of course I’m afraid. If the average person encounters such a thing, won’t most people be afraid of such things, right?” It’s just that she was afraid of the unknown, she wasn’t afraid of ghosts knocking at her door while she was doing a shameful deed.
The person on the other end of the phone was silent for a long time, to the point that Nan Xun thought that he was gone.
“Fu Mo? Fu Mo?” Nan Xun hurriedly called out twice.
“I’m here.” The man answered.
She doesn’t know if it was her illusion, but Nan Xun felt that Fu Mo’s voice became a little cold. The cold feeling even reached her through the other end of her cellphone which made her ears trembled.
The two chatted for a while before they hung up.
Nan Xun hurriedly asked little eight, “What did I said to make Fu Mo so unhappy? Why do I think he was a little absent-minded?”
Little eight answered, “I don’t know.”
When Su Han returned, she brought back some strange things to Nan Xun, such as a bronze mirror, a small bag of glutinous rice, a peach-wood sword, incense ash and talisman paper.
Su Han sprinkled glutinous rice on the crack of the door and the windowsill, the incense was sprinkled on the floor and the bronze mirror was placed on a table facing the door.
“Don’t tell me that this is the legendary magic mirror?” Nan Xun asked.
Su Han glanced at her and explained: “It’s an exorcism mirror from my Su family’s ancestry. After my grandfather died, it was passed onto my father. Unfortunately, my father is a businessman and wasn’t interested in the things handed down by my grandfather. Although I’m interested, I don’t have my grandfather’s talent and can’t open my eyes to see the supernatural.”
Nan Xun heard a trace of regret from her words.
Because of curiosity, Nan Xun stood in front of the exorcism mirror and looked at it, “Strange, why do I feel that there is a black aura on my body?”
When Su Han heard this, her expression suddenly changed, and she quickly looked into the mirror and saw that Nan Xun was covered with a faint ghostly aura.
“Mo Mo, have you been in contact with that thing recently?” Su Han’s voice sank.
Nan Xun’s face was muddled. “No, you have been with me these days. Today, I also listened to you and didn’t go anywhere.”
