Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 515 - A Calamity Arrived
Chapter 515: A Calamity Arrived
A week later.
Lu Sheng was helping out in the Lu family’s restaurant in South City, and Chu Sihan was speaking to Fu Xianyun and Yu Linglong.
Suddenly, a man in black hurried in and handed a letter to Chu Sihan.
“Lord, it’s a letter from Guard Chu.”
Chu Sihan received it and opened it. Then, he took out the letter.
After scanning it, his face darkened.
“Did something happen?”
Fu Xianyun asked worriedly.
“Something happened.” Chu Sihan crushed the letter into a ball and said lightly.
Fu Xianyun glanced at the letter he had crushed and a hint of confusion flashed across his eyes.
Chu Sihan was a calm person. If it were a small matter, he would not have such an expression.
The only possibility was that something big had happened at Lin Jiang Mansion again.
“Could there be a new case?” Fu Xianyun could only guess at this.
Chu Sihan looked at him indifferently and shook his head slightly. “No.”
Fu Xianyun frowned slightly and pondered for a long time before saying in a low voice, “Could it be about the strange things that happened in Lin Jiang Mansion recently?”
Chu Sihan looked at him in confusion. “What strange things?”
He had been staying in Liu Yue Village with Lu Sheng recently and did not pay attention to other matters.
“Didn’t you hear?” Fu Xianyun said in surprise, “I thought you already knew.”
Chu Sihan shook his head slightly. “I don’t know.”
“It’s like this.” Fu Xianyun pondered and said, “A while ago, I was having my meal here. I heard from a few merchants who came back from Lin Jiang Mansion that some strange sounds were heard from Lin Jiang Mansion late at night.”
Chu Sihan nodded slightly. “Chu Yun is referring to this.”
“Have you found out who’s behind this?” Fu Xianyun asked.
“It’s not a human, but a puppet.”
“Puppets?” Fu Xianyun was shocked. “Are they the puppets that invaded Nanyi Country’s town previously?”
Fu Xianyun only heard about what happened in Nanyi Country’s town later.
He found it unbelievable back then.
“Yes.” Chu Sihan nodded slightly.
“Where did these things come from? Who made them?”
“I don’t know, but it’s obvious that he’s not a good person.” Chu Sihan said coldly, “I’ll find Sheng Sheng.”
Fu Xianyun and Yu Linglong nodded at the same time. “Go ahead.”
Lu Sheng, who had just served the guests tea, saw Chu Sihan walking over and hurriedly asked with a smile.
“Chu Yun sent a letter saying that there’s news of puppets at Lin Jiang Mansion.”
Lu Sheng nodded calmly. “When do we set off?”
Chu Sihan said in a low voice, “Let’s go over tonight. Chu Yun said that three people have died. There’s no time to waste.”
Lu Sheng nodded again and did not say anything.
It was evening and the sky in the west was emitting a layer of hazy golden light.
Lu Sheng stood in front of the carriage and looked at the west sky silently.
“Have you packed your things?”
Chu Sihan walked over with his horse and asked gently.
Lu Sheng retracted her thoughts and smiled. “I’m done.”
“Then, let’s go.”
The two of them left the Chu Mansion’s gate. Chu Sihan tore open the void in an empty space and walked in with his horse.
When Lu Sheng regained her senses, she was already outside Lin Jiang Mansion’s city gate.
Chu Sihan mounted his horse and reached out to her.
She reached over and her hand was tugged. Then, her waist tightened. When she regained her senses, she was already sitting in front of Chu Sihan.
“Have you sit tight?”
Chu Sihan asked in a low voice. Lu Sheng nodded slightly. “Yes.”
The horse raised its leg and whinnied before charging towards the city gate.
The guards wanted to stop them, but when they saw Chu Sihan’s token, they retreated immediately.
The streets were empty. There was no one there.
Usually, this was the time when Lin Jiang Mansion’s night market started. It should have been bustling, but it was empty today.
It seemed like Chu Yun and Constable Ji had put up a notice again.
It had to be said that Lin Jiang Mansion had not been very peaceful for the past two years.
When the duo reached the magistrate court, they heard that Chu Yun and Constable Ji had already brought men to search for the source of the strange sounds.
Around eleven at night, Chu Yun and Constable Ji returned. Their expressions were bad and they looked disheveled.
“Lord, Young Madam, you’re back?”
When they saw Chu Sihan and Lu Sheng in the hall, Chu Yun and Constable Ji were surprised.
“What happened to you? Why are you all covered in dust?”
Chu Sihan stood up and walked down. After sizing them up, he asked faintly.
“Lord, we found the source of the strange sounds.”
After Chu Yun walked forward and bowed, he said in a deep voice, “Those monsters were hidden in a remote courtyard. They would emit strange roars, identical to the sounds heard in Lin Jiang Mansion two years ago.”
Two years ago, it was them and Shangguan Dian who dealt with those puppets.
However, Shangguan Dian had cleaned the corpses of the puppets back then, so everyone only heard the sounds but did not see the true faces of the puppets.
“Where?” Lu Sheng asked.
Chu Sihan looked at Chu Yun and said softly, “Bring us there.”
“But… our whereabouts have been discovered.” Chu Yun frowned and said, “I’m afraid they have already moved the ground.”
Chu Sihan said coldly, “It’s not too late to go over now.”
Chu Yun nodded. “Okay, I’ll bring you there!”
“Constable Ji, don’t come along.”
Seeing that Constable Ji was about to follow, Chu Sihan hurriedly turned his head and told him.
When Constable Ji heard that, he hurriedly bowed and did not follow them.
Chu Yun led the duo forward. Halfway there, he suddenly stopped.
Chu Sihan looked at him in confusion.
“This is the place.”
Chu Yun suddenly revealed a strange smile.
“Chu Yun, are you alright?”
Lu Sheng kept feeling that Chu Yun was a little strange, but she could not tell what was wrong.
Chu Yun scanned his surroundings and said to Chu Sihan, “Lord, past this forest, those strange people are locked up in front.”
Chu Sihan did not care much. He nodded slightly and walked towards the forest first.
Lu Sheng glanced at Chu Yun indifferently before quickly following Chu Sihan.
After the three of them passed the forest, they saw a courtyard in front of them. The roars of puppets were coming from inside.
At this moment, in the magistrate court.
Constable Ji, who had just dismissed everyone, was about to go back and rest when he saw someone walk in.
When he saw the person’s face clearly, he was slightly stunned. “Guard Chu, why did you come back so quickly?”
Chu Yun looked at him suspiciously and said, “Didn’t you come back before me?”
Seeing his inexplicable expression, Constable Ji could not help but frown. “No, didn’t you lead the Lord and Young Madam to the place where those strange people were locked up?”
“Lord and Young Madam came to Lin Jiang Mansion?” Chu Yun frowned. “Why didn’t I know?”
“Guard Chu, don’t scare people.”
Constable Ji shuddered and swallowed his saliva. “This is not the time to joke.”
“Who’s joking with you?” The more Chu Yun listened, the more suspicious he became.
He suddenly remembered what Constable Ji said just now and his heart jumped. “No, you said that I brought the Lord and Young Madam to the place where those strange people are locked up?”
Constable Ji said, “We met strange people and just finished them off when we happened to meet the Lord and Young Madam in the hall. Then, the Lord asked you to lead the way for them to find those strange people. Then, you brought them there.”
“Impossible!” Chu Yun frowned. “I chased after another strange person previously and wasn’t with you at all, much less seen the Lord and Young Madam.”
Constable Ji’s expression changed drastically. “Then… who was that person just now?”
Chu Yun’s eyes widened and he turned around to run out.
“Guard Chu, wait for me!”
After Constable Ji was stunned, he realized that something was amiss and hurried out of the government office after Chu Yun.
At this moment, Lu Sheng and Chu Sihan were standing on the wall. When they saw the courtyard full of puppets, they could not help but frown.
At the side, ‘Chu Yun’ was looking at the two of them with interest.
In the dark, he stuck out his slender tongue and licked the corner of his lips. His gaze at the two of them was like a wolf seeing its prey.
However, when Lu Sheng looked over, he regained his ‘Chu Yun’ expression.
“Lord, Young Madam, why don’t we burn these strange people?”
He walked forward and suggested softly.
Chu Sihan felt that it made sense. “Go and burn them.”
‘Chu Yun’ searched his body for a while before frowning. “Lord, I forgot to bring a lighter.”
In the dark night, Chu Sihan suddenly felt his hand being held by a slender hand.
He turned back and realized that the person holding his hand was Lu Sheng, who was standing beside him.
“Ah Han, something entered my eyes. Help me take a look.”
“Let me take a look.”
Chu Sihan believed her and took out a Night-Luminescent Pearl to shine in front of Lu Sheng.
Lu Sheng took the opportunity to get close to him and said in a voice only the two of them could hear, “There’s a problem with Chu Yun.”
Then, she stood up and rubbed her eyes. “I think I’m fine again.”
Chu Sihan tightened his grip on the Night-Luminescent Pearl, but did not look at Chu Yun immediately.
“Let them stay here for now. We’ll go back first.”
Chu Sihan suggested softly.
“Lord, if the mastermind comes back later and moves them away, we won’t be able to find them.”
When he heard them say that they were going back, ‘Chu Yun’ seemed to be anxious.
Chu Sihan frowned. “But who can deal with so many puppets?”
‘Chu Yun’ said, “I think it’s best to finish them off now.”
His gaze shifted and landed on Lu Sheng.
“Let’s go back first. Since the mastermind is not here, he probably doesn’t know that we’ve discovered this place. As long as we don’t alert him, it should be fine.”
As Chu Sihan spoke, he jumped off the wall with Lu Sheng and walked back quickly.
‘Chu Yun’ looked down at their backs from the wall and smiled. “Unfortunately, you can’t leave anymore. Hahaha—”
His voice was very unpleasant, like the sound of a saw.
Chu Sihan and Lu Sheng felt a faint sweat on their backs and their footsteps quickened.
However, they were sucked back by an invisible force halfway.
The duo slammed into the wall. The Night-Luminescent Pearl in Chu Sihan’s hand fell to the ground and rolled forward. Finally, it was stepped on by a foot.
Chu Sihan was shocked and hurriedly looked at Lu Sheng. However, she grunted and spat out a mouthful of blood.
Chu Sihan’s heart tightened and he hurriedly crawled over and hugged her.
“Tsk tsk—What a touching scene.”
‘Chu Yun’ clicked his tongue and walked in front of the two of them, looking down at them.
“How fragrant. I’ve lived for so many years and have not seen such a pure soul for a long time.”
He lowered his head and sniffed carefully. He could not help but sigh in satisfaction.
Chu Sihan and Lu Sheng’s hearts tightened.
The duo already vaguely knew who this person was.
“You’re the Emperor Ghost?”
Chu Sihan asked in a deep voice.
‘Chu Yun’ transformed into a black-robed man.
Under the light of the Night-Luminiscent Pearl, Lu Sheng finally saw the Emperor Ghost’s true face.
Her face paled immediately.
Wasn’t this the black-robed man who had killed her countless times in her dreams?
So, those dreams were really an omen!
So, was she really going to die here today?
“Lord, Young Madam!”
“Lord, Young Madam, where are you?”
Not far away, Chu Yun and Constable Ji’s voices were heard.
The Emperor Ghost turned back to look at the direction of the voices and snorted disdainfully.
It seemed like it did not care about Chu Yun and Constable Ji.
“With your souls, my skills will definitely increase greatly. At that time, even if all the people from the Five Peaks join forces, they will not be my match. Hahaha—”
As he spoke, he raised his head and roared with laughter.
Lu Sheng took out the Invisibility Talisman and pasted it on Chu Sihan. However, it was useless.
“How did this happen?!”
She held the talisman in her hand and her body trembled.
Chu Sihan hugged her tightly and stared warily at the Emperor Ghost in front.
“This is my domain. Everything you have here is useless.”
The Emperor Ghost stopped laughing and explained hoarsely.
Chu Sihan tried to tear the void, but realized that no matter what he did, he could not do so.
For the first time, a look of despair appeared on his face.
He did not know what to do. He could only hug the person in his arms tightly and keep retreating.
It was all his fault for believing in Chu Yun too much. That was why he was careless and fell into the Emperor Ghost’s trap.
The Emperor Ghost was really cunning. He should know that he trusted Chu Yun, so he transformed into him to lower his guard.
Lu Sheng took out the Communications Talisman in the dark and tried to contact Lu Zhou.
The call was quickly connected. Lu Sheng was elated and was about to speak when the Communications Talisman in her hand was smacked to the ground by an invisible force.
“Disciple, do you miss me? Disciple? Why aren’t you saying anything?”
Lu Zhou’s doubtful voice was heard.
“Master, the Emperor Ghost is in Lin Jiang…”
Before Lu Sheng could finish speaking, her neck was strangled.
Lu Sheng was dragged out of his arms. Chu Sihan’s expression changed drastically. He pounced forward to pull her back, but was sent flying and hit the wall.
Lu Zhou called out anxiously and lost contact with the Communications Talisman.
