Chapter 75 – Painting the Ancient House
Ye Fan followed Zhang Xuan into the Jiang family’s house, probably because Huang Shizhong lost, the old man of the Jiang family had a much better attitude toward Zhang Xuan.
Zhang Xuan asked to bring Ye Fan into Jiang Shuya’s ward, and Old Man Jiang readily agreed.
Jiang Shuya was lying on the bed, her face pale, even though she looked sick, Jiang Shuya was still very beautiful.
“This woman is so ugly now! Can’t be seen by anyone anymore,” Ye Fan gloated.
Zhang Xuan: “…” Is it ugly? Obviously still very beautiful.
“If she keeps looking like this in the future, she probably won’t have the face to grab Yunxi with me,” Ye Fan said happily.
Zhang Xuan took a deep breath and said, “Young Master Ye, you and Young Master Bai are the world’s best pair. Miss Jiang will not pose a threat to you, you can rest assured!”
“I think so too, whoever dares to rob me, I will solve them,” Ye Fan said proudly.
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Ye Fan closed his eyes, and the whole person didn’t move.
Zhang Xuan, who froze for a moment, frowned. Ye Fan sank into the dream and saw a dignified and noble woman.
Ye Fan saw the life of a woman. The woman was from a noble background, and her methods were cruel. Although her husband was philandering, he still respected her as a wife, and a number of concubines were suppressed by her, powerless to fight back.
Under the woman’s wrist, the concubines suffered miscarriages and stillbirths one by one, and in the end, the entire family was left with only two children.
One was born by the main, and the other was from a concubine who was deeply loved by the head of the family. The wife and concubine fought openly and secretly for many years, and each had a son. As their respective heirs grew, the battle became more and more bloody, in the end, the main wife finally had the son of the noble concubine killed, but things suddenly took a turn for the worse.
Ye Fan opened his eyes, Zhang Xuan looked at Ye Fan and said, “How is it?”
Ye Fan frowned and said, “It’s just reincarnation playing a memory!”
Zhang Xuan asked curiously, “Memory, what is it about?”
“About the two ladies in the back house, the main wife was cruel and killed all the children of her husband’s concubines. In the end, she was given a bowl of poisonous wine by her son.”
“Then, the noble concubine told her that when the two sons were born, they were switched by her, so that the son of the noble concubine whom she killed, was her own son. As for the son whom she had raised with great pains and had gone to great lengths to plan for, it was the noble concubine’s.”
“The main wife didn’t believe it. The concubine dropped her grandson to death in front of that first wife. The main wife became mad to death!”
“This is your grandson, but you always thought it was my grandson. Don’t you want him to die? Then I will fulfill you.” After the concubine said this, she dropped the child on the ground, with his head broken and bleeding!
Zhang Xuan frowned and said, “That’s too horrible!”
Being calculated by the adopted son to kill her own son, and seeing her own grandson being killed in front of her eyes, it is no wonder that the resentment lingers, and she has been thinking of committing s**cide.
“That family is not a good thing. This man is really strange. He married a nest of beautiful snakes, and he is not afraid of being bitten,” Ye Fan shook his head, feeling a little helpless.
“What happened to the main wife at the end?”
Ye Fan frowned and said, “The main wife lost her son and grandson, and she was devastated. Then she committed s**cide. She used the hairpin that Jiang Shuya took.”
“What will happen to Jiang Shuya now?” Zhang Xuan asked.
“Jiang Shuya will have this dream back and forth. She matches the fate of the female ghost. After a while, she will feel that the experience of the female ghost is hers. If her mind is not firm enough, she will want to commit s**cide! Or she may lie down all the time and become a vegetative person,” Ye Fan said.
“Then what do you think we can do?” Zhang Xuan asked.
Ye Fan thought for a while and said, “If the ghost of the female ghost’s son can be found, perhaps, the female ghost can finally cross!”
Zhang Xuan said eagerly, “How to find him?”
Ye Fan shrugged, and said: “This, I do not know ah!”
Zhang Xuan: “…”
“Don’t look at me like that, although I’m extremely smart, and I can make a hundred moves in one step, but there are times when saints are helpless, let alone me?” Ye Fan said confidently.
Zhang Xuan: “…” A real smart person wouldn’t say such things!

When Bai Yunxi arrived at Ye Fan’s villa, Zhang Xuan and Ye Fan were arguing.
“What’s wrong?” Bai Yunxi walked into the hall and asked.
Ye Fan looked at Bai Yunxi and showed a bright smile.
Ye Fan, like a child who has found a backer, raised his finger and pointed at Zhang Xuan, and said with anger: “Yunxi, this bastard said that my painting is not good-looking.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Zhang Xuan took out the painting, handed it to Bai Yunxi, and said helplessly: “Young Master Bai, I didn’t mean to deliberately find fault. It’s true that what Young Master Ye painted can’t be seen.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
“What is this painting? What is it for?” Bai Yunxi asked.
Ye Fan scratched his head and said nothing.
Bai Yunxi frowned and said, “What’s the matter, can’t you tell me?”
Ye Fan shook his head and hurriedly said, “No, it’s not that I’m going to do business, it’s this guy who has to drag me there.”
Zhang Xuan: “…” Ye Fan, this wife-con, the way of putting the blame on his head is really smooth.
Zhang Xuan smiled apologetically, and said, “This, Young Master Bai, I encountered something and asked for Young Master Ye’s help.”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “That’s right, this guy is so useless, I just went over to look at it.”
Zhang Xuan: “…”
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said, “What the hell is going on?”
Zhang Xuan briefly explained the matter, and Bai Yunxi roughly understood what happened.
“This is that house! The woman who possessed Jiang Shuya lives in this house. As long as we find this house, we may find the ghosts of other people around,” Ye Fan said.
Zhang Xuan looked at Bai Yunxi and said, “Young Master Bai, it’s not that I’m nitpicking! Young Master Ye’s painting is really too abstract, and my level of appreciation is limited…” Wanting to find this house with this painting, if you spend eight hundred years, it’s still not enough to find it.
Bai Yunxi: “…” This painting is really not very good, Ye Fan’s painting skills are really bad.
Bai Yunxi turned his head, looked at Ye Fan, and said, “Is this an ancient house you’ve painted?”
Ye Fan nodded and said, “Yes, it’s an ancient house, it should be from the Qing Dynasty. That female ghost should not be very old, only more than two hundred years old.”
“How did you see this ancient house?”
“I ah! I entered a dream!” Ye Fan said indifferently.
Bai Yunxi looked at Ye Fan and asked, “Can I enter your dream and go see this ancient mansion?”
Ye Fan shook his head and said, “That won’t work, I can’t do that dream, but I can do soul sharing and pass the images I see to you.”
Zhang Xuan frowned and said with some excitement, “How come you didn’t think of me soul sharing with you before?”
Ye Fan snorted softly and said, “Dream on! Soul sharing is only between couples, of course, I won’t do it with you, you big old man.”
Zhang Xuan hurriedly said: “It turned out to be made only for couples, then you do it, you do it, I will not interfere…” Zhang Xuan secretly said: Ye Fan, this idiot, he himself doesn’t look down on him but this guy actually dislikes him.
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Ye Fan held Bai Yunxi’s hand and gently knocked his forehead on Bai Yunxi’s forehead. An image was passed into Bai Yunxi’s mind. Bai Yunxi saw an ancient house. There was a beautiful woman who was good at calculating, but ended up ruining her life because of her own calculation…
“The scheme was too clever, unfortunately, it took the lives of the innocents,” Bai Yunxi, who had sobered up, shook his head and said.
Ye Fan frowned and said, “In the final analysis, they can only blame the science and technology at that time was not developed enough, and there was no paternity test technology.”
Bai Yunxi: “…”
Zhang Xuan: “…” Ye Fan said this, he was speechless.
“Young Master Bai, have you seen that house?” Zhang Xuan asked.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “I saw it, wait for me to draw it.”
Bai Yunxi picked up the brush, and soon, an ancient house appeared on the paper. Zhang Xuan looked at the drawn image and almost burst into tears with excitement. This is the picture he wanted! As for what Ye Fan drew, what kind of ghostly thing was that?!
“Yunxi, your painting is so beautiful!” Ye Fan said in admiration.
Zhang Xuan glanced at Ye Fan and couldn’t help but agree, “Yes! Young Master Bai’s painting is very beautiful, much better than yours.”
Ye Fan shrugged and said, “My painting is also good-looking, but the style of my painting is not the same as Yunxi’s paintings.”
Zhang Xuan: “…”
“There should be the words ‘Shi House’ on this,” Bai Yunxi said.
Zhang Xuan was overjoyed, “Great, with these two words, it will be much more convenient to investigate.” The Shi House on the plaque stated that the family’s surname was Shi. This way, the scope was greatly reduced. Ye Fan, this idiot, can’t even see such obvious clues, only know how to draw children’s doodles.
Zhang Xuan took the painting and left, leaving Bai Yunxi and Ye Fan in the villa.
“Yunxi, why are you here, miss me?” Ye Fan asked excitedly.
Bai Yunxi rolled his eyes and said, “Dream! Your cousin went to you to find me, do you know?”
Ye Fan frowned and said, “That damned girl went looking for you? This stinky girl better not be trying to dig my corner, otherwise, I must give her some color.”
“She’s your cousin! Why didn’t you recognize her before?”
“She doesn’t look good, so it’s not surprising that I can’t recognize her! I can definitely recognize someone as good-looking as you,” Ye Fan said.
Bai Yunxi: “…” Ye Fan, this face-con.
“The Shadow Killing Sect seems to have determined that Song Pinyuan is dead, and sent someone out to investigate the cause of Song Pinyuan’s death. I’m afraid there will be some changes in the capital these days,” Bai Yunxi said.
“Is the news of Song Pinyuan’s death known?” Ye Fan muttered.
Bai Yunxi nodded and said, “Song Pinyuan didn’t return to the Shadow Killing Sect on time. The Shadow Killing Sect seems to have some kind of special method to see if Song Pinyuan is dead.”
When the news of Song Pinyuan’s death reached the Song family, Old Man Song seemed to faint at once. In the hearts of the Song family, Song Pinyuan has always been invincible. Such an invincible person was killed without a sound, it is no wonder that the old man could not take it.
The members of Shadow Killing Sect are all killers, and it is common for people from the same sect to fight each other. Therefore, the so-called fellowship should be limited.
However, Bai Yunxi heard that there is a rule in the Shadow Killing Sect. If a master in the sect is killed, then the person who killed the master can inherit the position of the master. If no one takes this seat after a month, it will be inherited through the way of competition within the sect.
Bai Yunxi thought to himself: If the female ghost came from another place, then it’s good. Ye Fan could just leave the capital, avoid the limelight, and wait a month later.
