Ghost King’s Sacrificial Little Bride (7)
A black fog had already emerged from behind Ji Yongchuan’s head, and his eyes were frighteningly dark.
The ghost qi in his body was forcibly scattered by the power of the wedding dress.
He slowly raised the corners of his lips in a smile that was twisted in pain. “Really. I once learned how to fight ghosts in a Taoist temple1.”
Sure enough, everyone from the Bai family was a star of misfortune to ghosts.
Even a stupid and useless woman like Bai Weiwei could make him unlucky.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is at -20.】
The five points favorability that had just risen went down again.
At the sound of the system reminder, Bai Weiwei couldn’t help but hug him even tighter, pressing the symbols of her wedding dress against him.
She definitely wasn’t taking revenge. She was just scared, haha.
Ji Yongchuan hissed. He was about to show his true colors and completely shove her away.
Then, Bai Weiwei suddenly released him.
In the wretched green moonlight, she gazed at him in admiration with tears in her eyes.
“You’re amazing, little gege.”
Ji Yongchuan chuckled in his heart. He combined some gestures, and a cold, biting wind came suddenly.
The clothes on Bai Weiwei’s body were blown away.
The red wedding dress slipped off of her, revealing a beautiful figure with narrow shoulders.
The short T-shirt couldn’t hide her fair waist and revealed a faintly visible, adorable belly button.
Below her shorts, a pair of long legs glowed white.
Although it couldn’t compare to those female ghosts who specialized in sucking men’s essence qi, Ji Yongchuan still couldn’t guard against her exposed body’s trembling appearance.
Ever since he gained awareness, he had received a traditional education.
Women from good families should have the three obediences and four virtues2. They should also wear long sleeves and long skirts that didn’t reveal too much of their bodies.
In his heart, Bai Weiwei was defined as a girl from a good family.
It was offensive to the winds of customs3 to wear such revealing clothes to sleep.
Ji Yongchuan coldly humphed, then suddenly tapped his finger on her shoulder, where there was a small circular black birthmark.
This was the mark of the ghost king.
He wanted to take it back, then start the great feast of a hundred ghosts.
The ghosts had been famished for so long that they were filled with greedy, disgusting desires. They needed the flesh and blood of his sacrifice to calm down.
Ji Yongchuan’s fingers had just touched her round and delicate shoulders when he saw her looking at him foolishly.
Her pale white face suddenly flushed. Her teary eyes were just like crystals soaked in water, containing a pure shyness.
She couldn’t help but smile, her lips slightly pursed.
As if his touch disturbed her heart.
Ji Yongchuan didn’t know why, but his movements stopped for a moment, and the ghosts under his palm also followed suit for a few seconds.
He seemed to be struck dumb by her gentle, shy smile.
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is at -15.】
Ji Yongchuan ignored the flash of throbbing in his heart. He was just about to grab her mark.
Suddenly, the ghosts in the center of his palm growled silently, terrifyingly ferocious.
Ji Yongchuan’s spine chilled. A bad hunch made him pull back his hand, but it was too late.
The mark of the ghost king let loose an unimaginably powerful spell.
Ji Yongchuan’s pupils contracted. This was an inherited power that the Bai family’s ancestors had accumulated and passed on from generation to generation.
There was enough strength to kill a new ghost king.
It was unexpected that the Bai family hadn’t just taken the life of Bai Weiwei’s parents in order to save Bai Weiwei.
Even the inheritance that supported the Bai family was brought out.
If he was hit with this power, he would fall directly into the land of chaos and become a ghost with no consciousness again, without any power to stand up.
Suddenly, a hand held his hand softly.

TheWhiteBook’s Corner: Some scholarly old ghost from an ancient dynasty saw a newborn would be ghost king, locked him up in a classroom, and gave him a formal education about how proper well bred young ladies don’t go about sleeping in the privacy of their bedroom with their shoulders hanging out like harlots.
