After walking out of the building, Lu Yang indicated to the two policemen standing on guard outside the building that they were done, letting them know they could call support to come and process the homicide scene.

Lu Yang briefly said, “The female student’s name is Li Yao, a math major. Her identity should be easy to look up, but there’s no way to find out who the murderer is. However, it should be a practitioner. My dad will support your investigation. When he’s not around and you need to be in this building, you must have at least three people present.”

Even if Qing Wei Gong had the ability to discover the identity of the practitioner, they could not bring the practitioner to justice. They still needed the police to find evidence. Only then could the practitioner be sentenced.

“Got it.” Hu Lican suddenly thought of something and said in embarrassment, “Xiao Yang, I don’t think I’ll be able to apply for a subsidy for you this time. This case is too big. I can’t go under the radar and get a subsidy using some other reason.”

Lu Yang rolled his eyes at him and said reluctantly, “You owe me hotpot next time!”

Hu Lican immediately agreed. He understood the price of practitioners very well. Hotpot was nothing. Even treating him to a buffet of king crabs would be well worth it!

Fang Da was already looking at them as if they were great masters.

Chapter 3: Existence’s Bane, Part 3—The Society—translated by Translator

Lu Yang arrived at the club’s location for the first time as a member of the Supernatural Phenomena Studies Society and had no comments about the walls mottled like those of a ghost house.

Unexpectedly, Lin Zhixiang was actually present as well. Jiang Ziya had thought that she wouldn’t attend anymore. Her initial reason for joining the club had just been a desire to figure out whether or not unexplainable happenings truly existed in this world, and using that to clarify what in the world her existence’s bane’s natal chart truly was.

“Hello.” Lin Zhixiang looked at Lu Yang a bit nervously. She hadn’t seen him when she went to Qing Wei Gong in the morning, but she kept hearing from the elders about a “Xiao Yang.” Even though they hadn’t brought up anything substantial, she could tell that this “Xiao Yang” was nothing to sneeze at.

When he saw Lin Zhixiang, Lu Yang frowned. He had already told Jiang Ziya not to mention what happened to Li Yao for now. They should complete tonight’s night venture before bringing it up to prevent something else from happening. However, the latest they would be able to put it off would just be until tomorrow, as Lin Zhixiang was likely to hear about it.

“Haa~~”

After a huge yawn, Yu Shu lazily walked to the living room and lay on the sofa, waiting for breakfast… Or is it lunch? Whatever!

House Keeper walked out of the kitchen and asked with a faint smile, “You have woken up quite early today. I am just about to make lunch! May I ask if there is anything in particular you wish to eat?”

Yu Shu looked at her eldest son, who was truly captivating with such a handsome face. Plus he had a good figure to boot. Getting to see such a hottie first thing in the morning was such a blessing to her eyes!

“You.”

House Keeper blinked and said with a smile, “I am afraid that I do not yet have that kind of ‘function.’”

Chapter 3: Existence’s Bane, Part 1—Natal Chart—translated by lucathia (proofread by Taffygirl13 & Trespasserby)

“Bane of blood, bane of husband, bane of brood; a natal chart that tells of existence’s bane?”

Lu Yang frowned.

Lin Zhixiang stared at Lu Yang. Then, she turned to look at Liu Yishi by the side, who even gave her a wink. Finally, she decided to turn and focus her gaze back on Jiang Ziya.

Jiang Ziya reassured her, “Don’t worry. Lu Yang is very powerful. His family runs a temple, and he’s even the temple’s successor!”

Lin Zhixiang’s expression was extremely odd, but Jiang Ziya completely understood her feelings. It really was an impossible feat to accept a monk with the looks of a model. Besides, there was even a foreigner dad sitting beside him. The oddity was practically enough to pierce the heavens.

She let her head drop and quietly said, “It’s okay. I’ve already asked tons of people. No one has dared to help change my fate.”

Jiang Ziya felt she really was pitiful. Both of her parents were deceased, her only brother ended up disabled, and her entire family chased her out. If not for her brother and one of her aunts financially helping her in secret, she would have had trouble even surviving up until this age. All of these many tribulations had come about from a fortune teller pronouncing her the bane of all existence. Whoever approached her would die!

“Lu Yang, is there really such a thing as bane of blood?”

Lu Yang said with a frown, “Yes, but it’s super rare.”

Just by looking at Lu Yang’s expression, Jiang Ziya could tell that he wasn’t being honest, but he didn’t question him further. If Lu Yang wasn’t clarifying it, it was most likely because it had something to do with the innerworld again, and Lu Yang didn’t want Lin Zhixiang to know. There was no going back after taking a step inside.

The moment he took a step into the basement of the student union, Jiang Ziya attracted everyone’s attention. Actually, he hadn’t originally planned on coming today. After all, he had injured his hand, so doing anything would be inconvenient. Lu Yang had also told him to go home right after class. If it weren’t because the injury wasn’t serious and was fine after getting bandaged, that guy would even be overbearing and pick him up!

Jiang Ziya looked around once. There weren’t a lot of club members present, approximately seven or eight, but there were a few that he recognized. Lin Zhixiang, Jian Zhi, and the club president Xu Xikai were all present.

Jiang Zhi was the first to rush over. He asked frantically, “I-Is everything okay? Did the police come?”

“Don’t worry.” Jiang Ziya reassured him, “The police did come, but it was just to take our statements. It’s fine.”

Jiang Zhi let out a deep sigh of relief when he heard that.

“What happened to your hand?” Lin Zhixiang suddenly asked next to them.

Jiang Ziya scratched his face but still chose to lie. “Just me being too nervous going down the stairs, so I fell. My hand gave the cement stairs a good wipe. It’s just a scratch. The floor was really dirty, so I went to the infirmary to get it disinfected and bandaged to be safe.”
