Chapter 267: Turning into a Sieve

Zhu Yao’s apartment.

“Speak. What’s going on? Why are you here?” Zhu Yao passed him a piece of tissue.

Bai Yuan received it. Though his tears had stopped, he still had a depressed look. Biting his lips, tears constantly flowed, as his pair of hands held tightly onto one of her hands, unwilling to let go. He was like a child whose body and heart had been hurt, filled with fear and unease.

“Yuanyuan… doesn’t know… either.” He sniffled. “Yuanyuan missed Mistress Yaoyao, so… I used the pearl… with the thought of finding Mistress Yaoyao, in the end… I became like this… Those… Those beasts even bit me…”

Zhu Yao sighed as she stroked his head. The feelings of being hated by little animals, were something she understood very well! Back then, she was also someone who was chased down several streets by alien dogs!

Bai Yuan’s tears poured out again, as he cried even more sadly than before. “Beasties don’t like me… Wuuuu…”

“It’s alright…” She stroked his head.

Haah. When Bai Yuan was in Spiritual Realm, he was a beastie who could hold his head high. No matter were they demonic beasts or human practitioners, there was not a single one who did not revere him like an idol. However, the moment he came here, he was chased and surrounded by a few dogs to such an extent. Just thinking about it made her heart sour.

After transmigrating into a foreign world, he was despised by little animals. The shadow in Bai Yuan’s heart grew.

Even after Zhu Yao pacified him for a long while, Bai Yuan continued to cry and wail. She felt as if her sofa was about to be submerged in tears. She had to also comment on the fact that consoling a hunk, who was more than a hundred and seventy centimeters tall, was definitely a strenuous physical activity.

In the end, a certain master, who had long found this unpleasing to his eyes, reached out his hand and slammed the greasy alien unconscious. Peace finally returned to the world.

“Master…”

“Sleep, we will speak tomorrow.” After saying that, he immediately pulled his disciple back to the room, and tightly hugged onto her as they laid on the bed. Mn. His disciple was still his. Pets or whatever, raising too many of them was too much of a hassle.

After pondering for an entire night, Zhu Yao was still unable to figure out how Bai Yuan came over. If it was just purely the ability of his inner core, she felt that it was impossible. Putting aside the fact that she basically did not possess the so-called divine sense after returning here, it was hard to say if the inner core which Bai Yuan gave her was still with her. Furthermore, though Bai Yuan was a mysterious beastie, his abilities could not possibly surpass Realmspirit’s. Realmspirit found it really hard to send her back here, let alone Bai Yuan. If transmigrating was really that easy, this side would have long turned into a sieve. There was no need to wait till now.

Bai Yuan was frightened, and he was unable to speak clearly either. So she decided to ask him in detail another day.

On the early morning of the second day, she dexterously got up, only to realize that Bai Yuan had long woken up, and he was inspecting his surroundings with a confused look.

“You woke up?” Zhu Yao passed by him and poured a cup of water.

“Where is this?” He asked.

“Where else can this be? This is my home.” Zhu Yao passed the cup to him, and just as she was about to console him again.

However, he did not receive it. Instead, as if he had figured everything out, he pulled out his wallet from his clothes, took out a Grandfather Mao¹, and threw it at her. “Take this.”

Zhu Yao was stunned. She was unable to understand what he was playing at. “What are you trying to pull?”

He coldly laughed, as he then threw the money on the table. “We are all mature adults. We were just playing, I urge you not to treat it so seriously.”

Mature adults? Seriously? She suddenly thought of something, as she then sized up the person before her.

“Bai Yuan?”

“What Bai Yuan?” He frowned, as he looked at her with slight scorn. “This can’t be your first time, right? You’re merely selling your body, yet you’re trying to play a game of true love?”

The corner of Zhu Yao’s lips twitched. With a swing of her hand, she splashed the cup of water onto him. “You didn’t brush your teeth in the morning, right? Want me to help you?” Knock out your teeth or anything like that?

“You… You…” With a stunned look, he wiped his face. “I already gave you money, what else do you want? You’re just a prostitute, you can’t be thinking of having me take responsibility, right?”

“Responsibility? In your dreams!” Zhu Yao even threw the cup at him.

“You crazy!” That man dodged to the side, and looked at her with a startled look. “If not because I was drunk, do you think I will fancy you? Let me tell you this, my standards are very high… Oi oi oi, what are you doing? Put that teapot down!”

With fumes going right up her head, Zhu Yao raised the teapot up, and was about to smash it on his body.

“What happened?” Yu Yan walked out of the bedroom, still dressed in his pyjamas. His face still carried a hint of sleepiness, and his black hair scattered behind his back, unknowingly emitting out an alluring look.

That person’s eyes instantly widened, as he stared at Yu Yan with an infatuated look. His mouth slightly opened, and he suddenly spoke. “Mister, may I ask if you’re gay?”

Zhu Yao simply felt as if a string in her mind, had resoundingly snapped.

“Scram!” She threw a kick at him. She could put aside him mistaking her as one of those particular workers, but he actually dared to cover her man! Zhu Yao instantly threw a flurry of punches and kicks at him. Arming herself with a broom, she chased him out, and then closed the door with a bang.

That man however was still shouting out loud outside the door. “Haah, wait a minute. If you’re not gay, we can still become friends!”

When she walked back, her master had already changed out of his pyjamas, and was sitting on the chair.

“Master, he…” Even though he clearly had the same face, why did he turn into someone else after the course of a single night?

“He’s not Bai Yuan.” Yu Yan said with a sunken voice. “The spiritual energy on his body has disappeared.”

Then, did Bai Yuan transmigrate over, or did he not?

“Most likely, Bai Yuan’s soul has merely dwelled in that person’s body for a short while. Presently, he should have already returned.”

It was no wonder Bai Yuan was dressed in such a way right from the start.

“Then, can Bai Yuan still return?”

Yu Yan shook his head. “I do not know.”

Zhu Yao sighed. Initially, she had even wanted to ask him about it. Never did she expect that he would disappear after a single night. Forget it, Bai Yuan after all do not belong to this world. Just from making a small trip here, his heart has suffered such damage. It’s good that he has gone back.


After the person, whom Bai Yuan possessed, left, he did not appear in the following two days of the weekends. Zhu Yao urged her master to love the house appliances, and told him things like everyone had responsibilities to uphold, before heading for work like usual.

The moment she arrived in the company, Mouse ran over to her to pass her a message, informing her that the general manager wished to see her.

Whenever a new manager takes up the position in a company, he or she will naturally want to make his or her presence known. As the overseer of the planning department, the manager would look for her sooner or later. Without carrying any worries, Zhu Yao headed straight up. The office was still in the same location, though the person inside was no longer her fellow classmate Fatty.

Zhu Yao sighed, before knocking on the door. After hearing the response from inside, she then pushed the door open and entered.

Only to see a purplish face with green nose and swollen cheeks. Mn… And he looked a little familiar.

Coincidentally, that person raised his head as well, and instantly, he spat out his tea.

“It’s you!”

“It’s you!”

They spoke in unison.

“Why are you here?”

“Why are you here?”

“…”

“…”

As expected, something like fate, was simply a bitch! Never in her dreams would she think that the pervert who cover her man just two days ago, was actually her newly appointed superior. As expected, fate was really a motherfucking bitch.

“Ahem…” The newly appointed bitch faked out a few coughs, easing the awkwardness between them. Then, he immediately picked back up his demeanour as a general manager. “Umm… Hello! I’m Yu Tian.”

“You’re surnamed Yu as well?” Zhu Yao was stunned. “Who is Fatty to you?”

“You’re talking about Brother Ban? He’s my cousin.”

“The hell!” This damn fatty is simply too unethical. So the person he sold the company to, in the end was still someone from his own family.

“You must be Zhu Yao, right?” He stood up, and reached out his hand towards her. “We are colleagues from now on. I hope that Overseer Zhu will continue working for the company like before. Looking forward to cooperating with you.”

Zhu Yao glanced at him, and did not reach out her hand. Who wants to become friends with a love rival? Scram!

The corner of Yu Tian’s lips twitched. He knew that she was still angry about the matter of that day. “Ahem… About that. It was my fault back then. I was a little… over-the-top drunk that day. Mind telling me how did I end up on the sofa in your apartment?”

“How would I know how you found your way there?” Zhu Yao began to make up a story. She could not possibly tell him that he was possessed by a beastie, right? “On that day, I saw you leaning against my apartment door. You would not leave no matter what, and even hugged onto my thigh, crying for an entire night. I then relented and brought you in, letting you sleep on the sofa for an entire night.”

Yu Tian frowned. That’s not right. He was pretty good with alcohol, and had never done such an embarrassing thing in his life. Furthermore, he could not recall that he drank any alcohol last night at all. But, when he woke up, his eyes were indeed swollen red, looking as if he had cried for a long while.

“General manager, is there anything else?”

“No, you can return now.” Though he was still a little suspicious, Yu Tian had no choice but to accept this reason.

Zhu Yao turned around and walked towards the door.

“Wait a minute.”

Zhu Yao turned her head around, only to see him ask with sparkling eyes.

“Umm, let me ask about something. That person in your apartment is…”

“My husband.”

“… Oh.” With such extent of beauty, he was actually really a man. He was really disappointed.

“General manager?”

“Mn?”

“I’m really familiar with Fatty’s mother. Do you think I should send her a message, about your sexual preference?”

“…”


Zhu Yao observed this new boss for a few days, and realized that Bai Yuan was indeed not appearing again.

This person named Yu Tian was similarly unreliable. As expected of a relative of Fatty. Though he no longer raised cats, he began raising dogs instead. She had seen him pulling along a Samoyed puppy several times after work. Bai Yuan fortunately did not return, otherwise it was unimaginable how frightened he would become.

After a few weeks, Zhu Yao was finally certain that Bai Yuan would not appear again.

Before she could even feel at ease, a few days later, while Zhu Yao was conducting a department meeting, Yu Tian suddenly charged in. Hugging onto her thigh, he painfully cried out and shouted. “Little martial aunt!”

Zhu Yao: “…”

People in the meeting room: “…”

This world would not turn into a sieve, but Yu Tian was about to turn into one.

“You guys continue the discussion, I will return in a moment.” Zhu Yao picked up the person on the ground, and pulled Yu Tian all the way towards his office. After slamming the door shut, she locked it.

“Who are you?”

“Little martial aunt, I’m Zi Dan!” He said with a sincere look.

“Zi Dan?” Zhu Yao was stunned. “You’re the fatty of Beast-Taming Peak?”

“…” What fatty? He was just a little wealthy looking.

“Nevermind. So, how did you arrive here then?” Zhu Yao sighed.

“Naturally, I arrived here after my lifespan has depleted. Initially, I had wanted to investigate the place, but I never expected that I would encounter little martial aunt.” Zi Dan looked around with a curious expression. “Could this possibly be the Netherworld? I wonder where can I enter the Path of Reincarnation?”

“If you jump down from the window here, you can be reincarnated.” This place was situated on the thirtieth floor.

“Really?” He was actually eagerly walking towards the window.

“Hey, come back!” He really believed it, hey!

    Forgot who Zi dan is

    • http://scrya.org Scrya

      He’s the Peak Lord of Beast-Taming Peak of Ancient Hill Sect. The fatty with a fat pig as a mount. :>

    • pepto pink

      Zi Dan went through the Sudoku dungeon with Soi Sauz.

      I guess he’d have seen Zhu Yao around as Yu Yan’s disciple before the time of Soi Sauz, but that would have been long, looong ago for him (Zi Dan died of old age? Lifespan was depleted?) If he recognized Zhu Yao as the one who died aeons before, why wouldn’t he think this is the path of reincarnation?

    • jipan

      The fatty that stuck on that Sudoku and magic square dungeon 😂

  • jipan

    So the theory about Realmspirit bought the company turned false…

    But, what on earth is happened? Is Realmspirit that weakened that souls from underworld leeching to the real world?

    Ugh, Zi Dan fall. Sect master Mo fall. I’m worried about ancient sect!

    Thank you for the chapter, Mr. Scrya! Don’t let RL rolled you over!

    • http://en.gravatar.com/mrsnyan Mrs Nyan

      Maybe Realmspirit tries to give Zhu Yao a taste of nostalgia by using her new boss as an medium for all those souls from the other world…

      Afterall, doesn’t these reunions weaken your spirit and tear down your endurance move you to tears and make you miss that whole other world?

      ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • jipan

        The heaviest blow would be Yu Luo (Bo) to came…. She and Wang Xuzhi and Yue Ying.

        Damned Realmspirit, so insidious! Sis Yao need to pummel him more!

  • ruubix

    This Yu tian must have a weak will to keep getting possessed like this

  • https://mangahunteralive.wordpress.com/ Katrina-Marie Medrano

    The guy is a medium! LOL. I wonder how he will react when he is no longer possessed. Maybe Sesame will be the next one to possess the boss. LOL. Thanks for the chapter. It really cheered me up.

  • http://xsanguine8.wordpress.com Xsanguine8

    Who will make it over next, I wonder, Radish, Turnip, or Beastie…?

    • jipan

      Beastie please! Imagine sesame said his trade mark sentences in that man body. In front of crowds.
      “Mistress I want to bear monkeys with you!”

      You know, your spider gifs make me actually start think that spiders are kinda cute…

      still runs hysterically away at the sight of one in RL

      • SanitaryCockroach

        Like the vast majority of Arthropods, if you just respect them and let them be, they really won’t bother you. they have better things to do, like eat mosquitoes and real cockroaches. An example would be if you find one in your bathtub, and you don’t want to catch it cuz fear/discomfort, lay a strip of toilet paper over the edge to provide a surface that it can climb to get out. Honestly spiders get a really bad rap. Heck, people love honeybees, but many more people die or are very harmed by bees and wasps than spiders yearly. If you see one in a corner of your house, just come back around 10 min later and it will likely have found a place to hide or hunt, out of your way. Though I usually catch them because I love looking at them…… *Edit*: sorry for the dissertation there. -_-

        • http://en.gravatar.com/mrsnyan Mrs Nyan

          No need, it’s fine!
          Actually, I’m terrified by a tiny bit queezy with any insect that has the ability to bite through/penetrate even one layer of skin…
          (|| ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) *breaks out into cold sweat*

          I usually don’t mind a spider being in the same room ( given it is not bigger than a few centimeters with its legs) .. as long as it is in the opposite side of the room, not moving too much and still visible.
          Not like I couldn’t spend a night in the living room, lah.
          _(:3」∠)_

          With my Lil’ sis being a animal lover and me being a wimp, all spiders usually find their way out of our house pretty much okay.

          • SanitaryCockroach

            Just out of curiosity, why do arthropods scare you if they can pierce skin, yet animals with teeth or claws, like dogs and cats, do not? I am not criticizing or judging, it is just that from the way I see the world I do not understand that viewpoint. I would very much like to understand though. 🙂

          • Miau Miau Yeen

            My fear for spiders have been lessen due to my bf suddenly gaining the hobby of rearing tarantulas. I think most people are scared because they don’t understand spiders well. I’m not so scared of spiders anymore but I still would not want them touching me if possible especially the poisonous ones which probably won’t kill me but just turn my arm into a swollen Doraemon arm >.>
            Looking at them from afar or when they are in their container is good enough for me 😡

          • SanitaryCockroach

            So basically you treat them like any zoo animal? Cool to know!

          • http://en.gravatar.com/mrsnyan Mrs Nyan

            Well… I also get nervous around other animals, so… (*´▽`*)ゞ
            It usually takes a bit of coaxing and time to get used to a specific pet before I grow accustomed to holding and petting them. Given that they are usually very adorable mammals helps a lot. Most of the time I enjoy them from a far _(:3」∠)_

            I generally am disgusted by the thought of a foreign g object piercing through my skin. Not that I’m afraid of cuts or blood and vaccinations are fine and so on as long as it’s quick. But you should have seen me on occasions like getting an infusion/giving blood for donation. I’m an emotional wreck for at least 15min. – longest an hour. xd

            Given that bites/pokes by insects usually do not have any advantage for me to accept ‘suffering’ I do view them as obnoxious.
            As for spiders; I’m aware that those that we have here at my region are harmless and don’t tend to bite humans – but I also don’t like them to crawl over me – not touch my skin (any insect for that matter). Spiders a quick and some species even jump and not as predictable as a snail or worm for example and it would freak me out to have one on me and it to crawl into any opening (they avoid those humid cavities but I’m slightly paranoid, okay?!) or that I’d accidentally crush them and I’d have spider innards on my body (only slightly mysophobic).

            I was never so aware of how wimpy I’ve grown since childhood until I listed them all. _(:3」∠)_

            At least I don’t tear up anymore when a dog walks into my direction ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • SanitaryCockroach

            Thank you greatly m(_ _)m, that really helps me with seeing another perspective on this subject! And you were close, some species of tarantula are referred to as Bird-Eating Spiders due to their size. I can now also see how speed and unexpected skin touching could be unnerving. Good info to learn from! Here’s a guide to your nearby tarantula, in case you needed it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5d5603e352638d047891505c47c7acd93a991b4ea27448ec71577d8b76297aa1.png

  • blub

    She ought to call fatty’s father and ask him to give the cousin some advice on which direction to “swing” the bat in “baseball”

    • MoanaMeansMamilyXD

      Or inquire whether he’d prefer being the “catcher” or the “pitcher”

      • http://en.gravatar.com/mrsnyan Mrs Nyan

        I’d bet catcher. (灬´ิω´ิ灬)

        You can’t expect the beautiful and mighty Yu Yan to succumb beneath you, when you’re flirting with him. Master has definitively the dominant air around him.

        Although it had not been used as effectively as it could’ve been due to inexperience *thinks back to the pushed down on bed by CEO type of situation*
        Zhou Yao, you’ve suffered quite some time.
        (◍ ˃̵͈̑ᴗ˂̵͈̑)

  • Dildrave

    Realm spirit had just messed things up

  • Vinzzz001

    I got a few theories. These theories stem from what I understood from the previous chapter(s):

    – There is no spiritual power on earth originally.
    – Animals can sense spiritual power.
    – Only 1 white peal worth of spiritual energy transmigrated for Bai Yuan.

    The spiritual power should feel like something bad/oppressive to animals, making them dislike the place/person it originates from. Zhu Yao and Bai Yuan are examples of this. Yu Yan has far more spiritual power, which results in the animals fearing him instead of the usual disliking.

    With this information we can make some interesting conclusions; As she is disliked by animals since even before she met realmspirit, Zhu Yao is born on earth with (some) spiritual power. This is also likely why realmspirit contacted her, as she is capable of holding spiritual power while also being outside the rules of realmspirit’s realm.

    The weird things that are happening likely have something to do with the spiritual power.

    • jipan

      :O

      The theory about Sis Yao having strand of spiritual power seems very likely! Good job, you!

  • https://twitter.com/Dianatouille Diana Silva

    Oh yisus, I really did miss this. Thanks for the chapter ^^

  • MondSemmel

    Thanks for the chapter!

    What a hilarious chapter. Definitely a highlight. <3

  • Levaentin

    thnx for the chapter

    and well this is getting confused so…all of them can cross to the realm where zhu yao is now? is this a glitch of the reality?

  • Keima-kun

    It’s disappointing that Zhu yao, or rather the author is extreme homophobic. Excluding that, she would have been one of the coolest female MC..

  • Chronos5884

    Thanks for the chapter!
