Chapter 43 – Buying a house
Four Seasons Hotel.
“Boss, there’s news about what you asked me to investigate recently. Zhang Siliang and her current wife had a falling out. Zhang Siliang and Yuan Yi got divorced. Those relatives in Yuan Yi’s family also had an accident one by one, either a car accident, or reported and went to prison, and Zhang Siliang’s ex-wife came back and she put Yuan Yi in a lunatic asylum.”
Chen Songbin touched his chin and said, “It’s so fast.”
There was an old man sitting in the hotel, which was the old man Chen Songbin who was sitting next to Ye Fan on the plane.
“Boss, how do you know that Boss Zhang will fall out with his current wife?”
Chen Songbin smiled and said, “I’m just guessing. I met a strange person on the plane. I thought that as long as Zhang Siliang wasn’t stupid, there would be a big change in his family. I didn’t expect that guy to be really capable!”
“Zhang Siliang’s ex-wife seems to be back. Speaking of which, it’s really strange. The two had a falling out back then, but it seems that the relationship is not bad.”
Chen Songbin touched his chin and said, “Have you found the passenger information I asked you to check?”
“Boss, the passenger sitting next to you on the plane is called Ye Fan. The origin is a bit strange. He is from the Ye family in Cangcheng. He was expelled from the Ye family because of a scandal. His mother’s family, the Wu family, is also a big family in Cangcheng. He seems to have a friendship with the Third Young Master Bai, and he has been in and out of the Third Young Master Bai’s office these days.”
Chen Songbin thought about it and said, “That little friend seems to be very capable, he actually has something to do with the Third Young Master Bai.”

Ye Fan was walking on the road and was stopped by a person.
“Young Master Ye, long time no see!” Yang Fei said happily.
“Yang Fei, it’s you! How are you doing?” Ye Fan asked.
“I’m fine, but Master Xiao is not so good,” Yang Fei said. After Master Xiao came back from the ancient tomb, he gnashed his teeth every time he mentioned Ye Fan.
Ye Fan thoughtfully said: “The old man is not so good? I will visit him another day to comfort him. That old man is already so old, he still doesn’t know how to avoid dwelling on unpleasant things.”
Yang Fei: “…” As soon as you comfort him, I’m afraid Master will be even worse.
“Young Master Ye, where are you going?” Yang Fei asked.
“I want to buy a suite that is cleaner,” Ye Fan said.
Yang Fei frowned and said, “It takes a lot of money to buy a house!”
“That’s right! I recently made two businesses and made more than 100 million yuan. I’m still very comfortable,” Ye Fan said proudly.
Yang Fei looked at Ye Fan with admiration and said, “Young Master Ye, what business do you do that is so profitable?”
Ye Fan rubbed his chin and said, “It’s nothing, just seeing patients!”
“Young Master Ye, you can teach me to see patients too, I want to make some money too,” Yang Fei blinked and said.
Ye Fan shook his head and said in a serious manner, “Teach the disciple, starve the master, I don’t want to.”
Yang Fei said with disapproval: “Young Master Ye, you are so powerful. If I learn, I will only learn a little bit at most, and it will not affect you.”
Ye Fan glanced at Yang Fei and said displeasedly, “You can only learn a little bit, so stupid, I won’t teach you!”
Yang Fei: “…” This guy, Ye Fan, is really… This guy hasn’t graduated from college himself, and he is actually picky about himself, a scholar.
“Young Master Ye, if you want to buy a house, why don’t we go to the second-hand house transaction center to have a look?” Yang Fei suggested.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Okay.”
Yang Fei took Ye Fan to a second-hand house trading center, “Young Master Ye, what do you want from a house?”
“First, it needs to be closer to Yunxi’s company. After all, I have to go there often.”
Yang Fei: “…” What are you doing so diligently, you don’t work at Young Master Bai’s company.
“Second, it should be cheaper, why is the house price so expensive?”
Yang Fei: “…” This is the capital, where every inch of land is expensive, and prices have risen very fast in recent years, how can it be cheaper?!
“Thirdly, it needs to be clean, because in the future, I will refine tools and do alchemy! If there is some noise, it will not cause a sensation.”
Yang Fei: “…” What the hell is alchemy and tool refining?
“Boss Ye, your three conditions don’t seem to be easy!” Yang Fei said.
The land price in Beijing has been rising, the location of Bai Yunxi’s company is not bad, how can the surrounding houses be cheap? This guy, Ye Fan, still needs to wake up!
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, where there’s a will, there’s a way, look hard, you can always find it.”
Yang Fei: “……”
Ye Fan flipped through the album of second-hand houses and said, “This house is very cheap! It’s a villa, it only costs three million, and the villa has five or six hundred square meters. It’s so cheap, isn’t there a problem?” A house of the same area and location can’t come down with 30 million yuan. This house only costs 3 million yuan, which is like a free gift!
Yang Fei’s expression changed, and he said seriously: “I know this house, it is a haunted house.”
“Haunted house?” Ye Fan asked curiously.
“Yes, the previous owner of this house was a businessman. This businessman had a son-in-law from a good family background. It is a pity that the son-in-law’s parents suddenly died unexpectedly, and the family fell.”
“The skinny camel was bigger than the horse, the rich second generation went to the Yue family with a lot of money. The Yue family started to treat the son-in-law well, but the son-in-law was not wary and took out the money one after another and gave it to the Yue family to make an investment.”
“After the son-in-law handed over all the family money, the father-in-law had other thoughts, wanting his daughter to divorce that person and find another rich man to marry.”
“He accidentally let the son-in-law know about this matter, and the son-in-law didn’t make a noise. He just stunned those people at the banquet, and then stabbed them to death.”
“Later, the son-in-law also committed suicide in prison.”
“After this happened, the house price was reduced. Later, it was sold to a family. After the family moved in, they said that they could hear crying in the middle of the night and that unidentified green liquid would often flow out of the walls. Within a few days of moving in, someone in the family became ill, so the family quickly moved out.”
“It is said that this house has changed hands with multiple owners, but because of the constant occurrence of supernatural events, each owner did not stay long and left.”
Ye Fan said brightly: “Haunted house? No wonder it’s so cheap! It’s good, just buy this one.”
Yang Fei looked at Ye Fan, and said inexplicably, “Young Master Ye, you don’t care?”
Ye Fan smiled and said: “I want to save money, the location of this house is good, it’s close enough to Yunxi’s company, because it’s been haunted, even if I make some noise in the future, people won’t make a fuss. The important thing is that the history of this house is only a few decades old. I thought that even if there were ghosts in it, it would not be too powerful. Before, the ancient tomb was different, the owner of the tomb was a 2,000-year-old zombie.”
Yang Fei said with some horror: “Young Master Ye, how did you know that there were zombies in that ancient tomb, did you see it?”
Ye Fan looked at Yang Fei and said, “I have seen it.”
“Young Master Ye, did you know? After we evacuated, the country sent another group of people over, and Longhu Mountain also sent a few masters over there. However, several people didn’t come back, and some of the special forces who came back fell in a deep coma,” Yang Fei said.
Ye Fan blinked and said, “Really? There is such a thing, I’m not very clear.”
Yang Fei: “…”
Chao Xi Company.
“Where have you been? Why are you here so late?” Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan and asked lightly.
“You miss me?” Ye Fan asked.
Bai Yunxi smiled coldly and said, “You think too much. I’m very happy that you’re not here.”
“I was buying a house!” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi was stunned for a moment, then smiled and said, “Buying a house, it’s time for you to buy a house, too. Do you have your eye on one?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes! I have already bought it,” Ye Fan said.
“The house in Beijing is not cheap, how much did it cost?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“Three million!” Ye Fan said proudly.
Bai Yunxi said with some confusion: “Only three million, a small apartment?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “No, it’s a villa.”
“With only three million, you can actually buy a villa?” Bai Yunxi asked in confusion.
Ye Fan smiled and said, “I’m amazing! I’m a diligent and thrifty housekeeper, and I won’t spend money indiscriminately. If you follow someone like me, you can rest assured.”
“There is no pie in the sky, a three-million-yuan villa? There must be something wrong with this villa, you must have been tricked,” Bai Yunxi said.
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Well, there are some problems, but it’s just a small problem.”
“What’s the little problem?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“It’s not a big deal. That house is a haunted house. It is said that several owners can’t live there any longer,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said with a sneer, “It’s a haunted house, and you actually spent three million?”
Ye Fan blinked and said, “The villa is more than 500 square meters, it’s big and spacious, and 3 million is not expensive ah! I just went to see the villa, the location is not good, there seems to be a natural yin formation underneath, able to attract the nearby ghosts. In that house, there are about 40 to 50 ghosts. If I live in it, just exterminate those ghosts living with me, otherwise, even if the villa has more than 500 square meters, it’s still too crowded.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“When are you going to exterminate ghosts?” Bai Yunxi asked.
“I plan to make a ghost flag first,” Ye Fan said.
The yin ghost flag belongs to the magic tools that are used by the cultivators of the demon’s way. The yin ghost flags are growth-type magic tools. After absorbing the ghost qi, they will become more and more powerful. The spiritual qi in this world is thin, whether it is the demon way or the right way, as long as it is useful, it is a good practice.
“This matter is a little troublesome,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi asked curiously, “Why?”
“Because of the materials! The materials used for the ghost flags may not be found on the market,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Oh, this is a problem, you can go to the antique shop to have a look.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “I was thinking the same thing.”
Thin camel is bigger than a horse – means rich people still has some money even if they go bankrupt, since camels carry extra water and horses don’t
Sorry for skipping 2 days. My laptop broke for the Nth time, it’s an old model. I got tricked when I bought it but whatever, damn evil salesman, no wonder he kept pushing it. Ahahaha.
