“Come in!”

Yu Shu gestured for Jiang Ziya to enter her apartment. The latter froze before following her in.

With all that had happened, Jiang Ziya should have felt sleepy. Yet he did not despite the fact that he had spent the entire night running around and it was already bright outside. Listening to what Yu Shu had to say was not a bad choice. Perhaps she had some things she wanted to tell him that she couldn’t in front of the others, so she wanted to meet him alone.

The moment she entered, Yu Shu saw a shadow flee into a room, gorgeous white sleeves lined with gold brushing past her.

Meanwhile, House Keeper stood in the living room, his back to the entrance. He soon turned around. As he was about to greet his mistress, he saw Jiang Ziya and stilled for a moment before he said with a smile, “Jiang Ziya, welcome.”

Yu Shu yelled across the room, “Hold Keeper, why are you hiding? Come out!”

Normally, using such a tone to speak to Hold Keeper would result in a hundred quips back from him, but now, he timidly walked out from the study and didn’t dare to say a single word.

“Dear head honchos, if you all want to divvy up your territories, you don’t need to include my humble self. I’m content with my hermit shell of an apartment. Oh, and don’t you dare lay a hand on my sons!”

Yu Shu stood by the door, frowning as she took in the sight of the room.

A priest, a Taoist, and a deity were all present. What the hell?!

Since ancient times, there were only ever two underlying reasons for war: religion or pillage, or both of them together, spreading the gospel and plundering at the same time.

Shit, I should have brought my sword, not because I’m in danger, but because I feel like I’ve lost against them.

Yu Shu walked up to the remaining spot at the low table. After she sat down, she glared at the neighbor across from her.

“Um, I got you involved again. I’m really sorry,” Jiang Ziya could only apologize awkwardly.

Ever since he had hidden at this neighbor’s place to hide from Xiao Xue, he had been getting Yu Shu involved again and again. He had even leveled up her son without her permission.

Yu Shu said with an ugly expression, “You can totally show more sincerity by deleting both my number and my messaging info and swear that you’ll never knock on my door again!”

Jiang Ziya really did not dare to do any of that. If not for House Keeper and Hold Keeper this time, a lot of their classmates would probably have died!

“Don’t blame Ziya.” Lu Yang frowned and declared, “Blame what happened this time on me. It has nothing to do with him.”

Yu Shu rolled her eyes and snapped, “I’m blaming both of you, okay? You’re both at fault! Remember this: you all owe me a lot of favors!”

“Yu Shu says that her hair hurts today, so she can’t come.”

Jiang Ziya held his cell phone up to show everyone. They could only bark with laughter at such a reason.

Liu Yishi wasn’t frustrated, and smilingly said, “Please reply to her and say that I can give her two certificates from the church guaranteeing no harm to her two familiars. Practitioners will refrain from harming them on behalf of the church.”

Jiang Ziya was shocked. You can do that?

“The church is actually willing to protect familiars?”

Lu Yang helplessly said, “Of course not. It will just be my dad’s written promise.”

Jiang Ziya scrunched up his face at that and said, “Do we have to trick Yu Shu?” If she found them out, his neighbor would instantly transform into the demon king!

She heard the door open, but Yu Shu remained sprawled on the chair, too lazy to move.

Two tall figures walked into the study, one wearing black and one wearing white. They were so striking that she could not ignore them.

The one wearing black respectfully said, “Mistress, as you surmised, something has happened. Your deductions are astounding. You were able to tell that something was wrong simply from seeing a live feed of the fire alarm going off at Jiang Ziya’s university.”

Yu Shu felt aggrieved as she looked at her two sons, as if there was nothing left to live for. Why the hell did I give birth to them—No! I haven’t given birth at all, b-but… Fine, this is close enough to “giving birth.”

“Why are you acting so strange?”

Hold Keeper swept his eyes up and down to check on her condition. She was not injured, and she already had a cup of coffee next to her. She had been using her computer. There’s nothing wrong!

Jiang Ziya struggled to break free, turning and immediately throwing a punch. However, the other person grabbed his hand, and he was unable to pull it back. He really was not the battle type.

“Jiang Ziya, it’s me,” the other person calmly said.

Jiang Ziya was stunned when he made out the face of the newcomer, and blurted, “House Keeper?”

House Keeper smiled faintly and said, “I am not alone.”

He gestured behind Jiang Ziya.

Jiang Ziya turned. A white figure with a compassionate expression stood among the university students collapsed across the ground.

“Hold Keeper?” Jiang Ziya was surprised.

Hold Keeper was wearing extravagant, white priest robes with a golden cross around his neck. He looked even more like a priest than the religious Liu Yishi, the kind that was high in rank, someone who was far from ordinary.

Kneeling down, Hold Keeper examined the university student with the worst condition among them. His entire neck had blackened, and he was unable to breathe, his whole face turning purple. It would most likely only take a few minutes for him to perish.

When that person saw Hold Keeper, it was like he had seen his savior. He began to thrash around again after his struggles from earlier died down due to his near suffocation.

Hold Keeper took the cross necklace off. With the cross in hand, he touched the other person’s neck and comforted him with his gentle and calm gaze as he shouted, “In the name of God, I command all filth and evil to depart at once, to return to the depths of the shadows and eternally atone for your sins!”

Whoa! Jiang Ziya couldn’t help but glance to the side at House Keeper and ask doubtfully, “Hold Keeper actually knows how to exorcise demons?”

Isn’t he a spirit himself? What’s up with spirits exorcising demons? I don’t get it at all!
