“If you would like to rest first, I will call the hotel and book a room for you. If you want to go back to the city, you will just have to wait here. I will ask the driver to come here and drive you back,” Han Zhuofeng said.
Xie Jiling didn’t act courteously as she said in a straightforward manner, “Let’s go back right away.”
“Actually, if it’s not necessary, I don’t like staying at a hotel,” Xie Jiling said casually.
Hearing this, Han Zhuofeng gasped. He thought this matter was not as simple as it sounded!
“Why?” Han Zhuofeng asked quickly. His voice deepened, and he sounded nervous.
When Han Zhuofeng heard Xie Jiling’s response, he felt regretful. He would have preferred not to know the answer.
“Because the chances of meeting a vengeful spirit are higher when you are staying at a hotel,” Xie Jiling said.
“Why?” Han Zhuofeng immediately felt horrible.
He had to stay at a hotel for a few months!
Xie Jiling then answered, “Most hotels are rather old, and there are many people in a hotel. Vengeful spirits love collecting their targets at a hotel.”
Han Zhuofeng gasped. Xie Jiling made it sound as if vengeful spirits were gathering supplies.
“In addition, most hotels are built on graveyards,” Xie Jiling said, “You shouldn’t assume that graveyards aren’t built in a good place. Graveyards are usually constructed in a place with good Feng Shui. If they are able to get rid of the illegally built graveyards, they love building hotels on top of these graveyards. However, there are obviously ghosts at a place with graveyards.”
“Most ghosts are guided to the underworld after they die, and they don’t stay in the human world for too long. The longer they stay, the more harm it brings them,” Xie Jiling said, “Unless they transform into vengeful spirits, they won’t be able to stay in the human world for a long time. If they haven’t entered the underworld after seven days, their soul will dissipate.”
“Therefore, ordinary ghosts won’t exist anymore.” Xie Jiling cast a glance at Han Zhuofeng and said, “The remaining ghosts would be vengeful spirits. People who die with reluctance and hatred and hold a grudge against humanity would die and transform into a vengeful spirit.”
“When they become vengeful ghosts and kill more and more people, their grudge will increase, and the power of their grudge will grow stronger. Their soul will solidify even more,” Xie Jiling said, “And that would be a path with no return. Once they become a vengeful spirit, they would be a vengeful spirit forever and become targets of exorcists.”
“Of course, if you are unlucky, a ghost encountered at 9 PM would most likely be a vengeful spirit,” Xie Jiling said.
Han Zhuofeng trembled and said, “Do I have enough protection talismans? Are there any talismans that can be used repeatedly for a longer period of time? These protection talismans can only be used once, and that’s too troublesome.”
“Yeah.” Xie Jiling said, “True. You are always filming outside, and you might have to go to a forest, which increases the chance of you encountering one.”
Han Zhuofeng stumbled. He couldn’t believe it.
Xie Jiling took a jade pendant out of her bag. There was a tiny bead hanging from a chain. It looked really ordinary.
“This will do,” Xie Jiling said, “This jade pendant contains the same type of energy as my bead bracelet. It can block many attacks.”
“Can you give me a discount?” Han Zhuofeng was very smart. He knew that Xie Jiling wouldn’t give it to him for free.
“Five million,” Xie Jiling said.
“Is there something bigger? This is so small. Does it have enough energy?” Han Zhuofeng asked.
“That’s enough. The size of the item has no correlation to the amount of energy. The amount of energy depends on how much time the item was nurtured,” Xie Jiling said, “This is one of the few bracelets given to me by my family, and this one happened to be nurtured for a long time.”
“As long as a vengeful spirit doesn’t attack, its energy will not dissipate,” Xie Jiling said.
“How do I know if there’s a vengeful spirit nearby?” Han Zhuofeng asked, “The paper talisman will heat up, but what about this bead?”
“The bead is different from the talisman,” Xie Jiling said, When a vengeful spirit approaches you, the talisman will burn the vengeful spirit. In return, the paper talisman will be burnt as well.”
“But this bead will create a space of energy. It exists as a protective energy layer. The layer of energy will protect you,” Xie Jiling said, “The vengeful spirit will not be able to move through this layer of energy to get close to you.”
Han Zhuofeng’s eyes lit up.
That sounded good!
“Although it can be used repeatedly, the energy can be used up if there were too many attacks from a vengeful spirit. By then, when the vengeful spirit breaks through the layer of energy and approaches you, the talisman will work,” Xie Jiling said. “You have a lot of paper talismans anyway. When your talisman starts heating up, it means that you are being approached by a vengeful spirit.”
“Of course, if they want to hurt someone else, they would most likely reveal themselves to you. You would be able to see it while it is outside the layer of energy. By then, you would know that you have been attacked. You can contact me, and you don’t have to worry about the layer of energy being exhausted.”
“If the vengeful spirit never revealed itself, it means you are the target. Once it breaks through the layer of energy, the protection talisman would function as another barrier. Even if the vengeful spirit doesn’t reveal itself to you, you would feel the protection talisman heating up. By then, you would know that a vengeful spirit is approaching you, and you should contact me as soon as possible.”
Xie Jiling scrutinized Han Zhuofeng from the top to bottom and said, “With this bead and this protection talisman, you have equipped yourself well enough. You don’t have to worry.”
“Honestly, you can’t be that unfortunate to encounter so many vengeful spirits,” Xie Jiling was starting to admire Han Zhuofeng.
The latter didn’t believe in these things back then.
But when he started believing, he immediately equipped himself in such a meticulous way.
“True.” Han Zhuofeng pondered and thought that what Xie Jiling said was reasonable.
Now that he had made sufficient preparation, he didn’t have to be afraid.
After all, no one would bring so many paper talismans around like him.
He showed Xie Jiling around one last time and made sure that the studio was fine. Then, they met up with Shi Xiaoya and Yan Zhiqing.
When Han Zhuoling was sure that Han Zhuofeng was alright, he went back to the office.
Shi Xiaoya saw Han Zhuofeng and Xie Jiling come back together.
Obviously, Shi Xiaoya and Yan Zhiqing had heard the film crew and cast gossiping secretly.
And now that they saw both of them together, they really thought that Han Zhuofeng and Xie Jiling were a good match for each other.
It was always nice to see two good-looking people walking together.
Han Zhuofeng didn’t look as mature as Han Zhuoling and Han Zhuoli, but unlike his two older brothers, he exuded this cheerful warmth.
Xie Jiling looked sweet and pretty. Just by looking at her appearance, you wouldn’t expect Xie Jiling to be so fierce.
Shi Xiaoya laughed secretly and said to Yan Zhiqing, “I think they are a good match.”
Yan Zhiqing nodded. “They do match each other. Han Zhuofeng is scared of ghosts and is a coward, while Xie Jiling exorcises ghosts for a living. As such, she can protect him.”
Shi Xiaoya was speechless. “…”
Who was talking about that?
However, Yan Zhiqing was right.
When it came to that, they were a good match.
Yan Zhiqing suddenly stopped talking. She turned and stared at Shi Xiaoya.
Shi Xiaoya blinked. She didn’t understand why Yan Zhiqing would suddenly look at her.
