Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios

Ji Fengyan instinctively retreated and was about to reach for her evil-vanquishing sword. However, an abrupt wave of pain radiated through her and she sank into a deep darkness in the next second.

A black figure suddenly appeared behind Ji Fengyan and caught her as she fell to the floor.

The dog-headed humanoid had landed before them, the impact from its four paws creating a few holes in the ground.

Cloaked in darkness, the black figure looked at the vicious dog-headed humanoid and said in a cold voice, “It’s me.”

That voice stunned the ferocious dog-headed humanoid. Within seconds, it had wiped off its savage expression and stood straight up in attention. It said respectfully, “I didn’t know it was you, my lord. Please forgive me.”

The black figure snorted. The dog-headed humanoid trembled all over as cold sweat drenched its back.

“Who else could it be in the Ming Workshop? Get lost.”

“Yes.” The dog-headed humanoid nodded while flustered and hastily fled back to the furthest blood pool. It laid down and its hoarse breathing noise faded away.

After watching the dog-headed humanoid turn back, the black figure looked down at the unconscious Ji Fengyan in his arms and frowned.

He then turned around and carried the sleeping Ji Fengyan out of the Ming Workshop.

Outside the workshop, a person was waiting in a corner. Seeing the figure emerge with Ji Fengyan, he immediately went to receive them.

Under the moonlight, the identity of the black figure was finally revealed.

That cold and handsome face: it was Grand Tutor Xing Lou.

“My lord.” The dark guard had been waiting outside for some time. He looked worriedly at Ji Fengyan. “It was my fault that I didn’t stop Miss Ji from entering the Ming Workshop.”

Under Xing Lou’s instructions, the dark guard had been secretly following Ji Fengyan since her visit to the Emperor, so as to ensure her safety. He had seen Ji Fengyan enter the Ming Workshop tonight and knew something was very wrong. The dark guard had then rushed to inform Xing Lou.

Only after seeing Ji Fengyan looking alive and well did he secretly heave a sigh of relief.

That thing inside the Ming Workshop was a vicious and cruel monster. Apart from Xing Lou, there was no one else who could have safely brought Ji Fengyan back out.

“She suspects the Ming Workshop.” Xing Lou frowned.

The dark guard’s expression changed.

“I will stay at the Ji residence these few days. Handle all the other affairs on your own. If you encounter any problems, come look for me at the Ji residence.” Xing Lou ordered.

“Yes!” The dark guard complied.

Xing Lou then carried Ji Fengyan toward the Ji residence.

The next morning, Ji Fengyan stirred from her sleep. She immediately sat up, the sight of that dog-headed humanoid pouncing toward her still vivid in her mind.

“Uh?” A soft voice drifted into Ji Fengyan’s ear.

Ji Fengyan turned in reflex to find herself somehow back at the Ji residence, with Liu Huo sleeping beside her.

What’s going on?

Wasn’t I inside the Ming Workshop yesterday?

“You are awake?” Liu Huo appeared startled from his sleep by Ji Fengyan. He slowly sat up as he looked sleepily at her.
