Chapter 3417: Pay Me Money
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
As Xiao Fengqing thought about it, she felt so scared. “But… it told… it told me to seduce a guy so that it can absorb the guy’s vitality to improve its ability.”
When Han Zhuoling and Han Zhuofeng heard this, their expression darkened.
As the victim, Han Zhuofeng was naturally angry.
And Han Zhuoling was angry because this Xiao Fengqing actually had the audacity to target his little brother!
Xiao Fengqing had basically created a dead end for herself.
Xie Jiling then explained, “The fox spirit has really a strong aura of Yin energy. As a human, you have something that the fox spirit doesn’t have, but at the same time, as a woman, you have a very strong aura of Yin energy as well. Once it has absorbed too much of the Yin energy, it would need to mediate the Yin with the Yang.”
“It would need to gather the aura of Yang. It doesn’t take the Yang energy from you,” Xie Jiling said coldly.
“As long as it is in you, you will not just be sacrificing your appearance and body. You would be using your lifespan to replenish its power.”
“However, by the end of the day, you are still human. How many years can you offer to that hundred-year-old fox spirit? If this had continued, you would have been sucked dry by the end of this year. You wouldn’t even last a few years,” Xie Jiling said.
Xiao Fengqing’s expression changed. She first looked fearful. Then, she looked doubtful as she stared at Xie Jiling.
“I am not trying to scare you,” Xie Jiling said coldly, “Don’t you feel tired all the time? Isn’t your weight dropping even without you controlling your weight?”
“Don’t you think you’re getting skinnier because of the fox spirit?” Xie Jiling asked.
Xiao Fengqing’s expression changed again. She finally stopped looking doubtful.
“You are exhausted and unenergetic because your vitality was sucked away. Because of this same reason, you are getting skinnier. Your vitality is decreasing, and you don’t have enough vitality to support your own body. That is why you are getting skinnier,” Xie Jiling said.
“Then… what should I do?” Xiao Fengqing hastily said, “Since it is gone now, am I going to be okay now?”
“You can’t restore the vitality that it had sucked away. A human’s vitality will always be decreasing, and you can’t restore that. If you could restore your vitality, you wouldn’t feel sick, grow old, or die.”
“And you have lost that…” Xie Jiling added.
Xiao Fengqing turned pale. She regretted what she had done.
She shouldn’t have blindly invited a fox spirit for the sake of beauty.
And now, she had lost so much.
One wouldn’t be able to tell from her appearance…
But her lifespan had been reduced!
“How… much longer can I live?” Xiao Fengqing asked.
“If it had continued absorbing your vitality, you would have lived until the end of this year,” Xie Jiling said, “But since it is gone and you cannot restore the vitality lost, the amount of vitality left should be enough for you to live for a few decades.”
“Because the fox spirit absorbs vitality at a very fast rate, if it had continued, you would have lived only until the end of this year. But now that it is no longer absorbing your vitality and you are the only one using up your vitality, the exhaustion of your vitality will be much slower. In addition, people nowadays are very good at maintaining their health and delaying aging. You should be able to delay your death.”
Of course, a few decades could be twenty years or thirty years.
Xie Jiling couldn’t say exactly how many decades it could be delayed.
If Xiao Fengqing was told that she could only live for another twenty years, she might actually go crazy.
Xiao Fengqing was only twenty years old.
To female celebrities, even the age of 40 was young.
Female celebrities spent a lot of money on maintaining their appearances.
Even when they reached the age of 40, they could still look like they were 30. This was not a difficult thing to achieve.
However, Xie Jiling couldn’t tell exactly how long Xiao Fengqing could live.
“My advice is that you try your best to maintain your health. Don’t try any devious methods. You still have to pay an equivalent price for what you get. If you attempt to beg for more beauty again, you will lose your life. If you are still thinking about begging some existence for a longer lifespan, whether it be a spirit or an item, you will lose something else.”
There was no need for Xie Jiling to give this reminder. As Xiao Fengqing had suffered such a huge loss this time, she wouldn’t dare to try any heretical methods anymore.
“I definitely won’t ignorantly beg for anything,” Xiao Fengqing said.

She suddenly recalled something and said, “Yesterday… yesterday when Director Han touched my shoulder, my skin was burnt, and it wouldn’t heal.”
Xie Jiling took out a small bottle of ointment from her bag and said, “You can apply this. You don’t have to go to the hospital. The hospital can’t treat your wound.”
“Thank you. Thank you,” Xiao Fengqing quickly said.
“I am not giving it to you for free.” Xie Jiling said, “Han Zhuofeng was the one who asked me to exorcise the fox, and he paid for the exorcism. Since you want this ointment, you have to pay me as well. Do you expect me to give you something free when you caused this trouble?”
Xiao Fengqing blinked. So, it wasn’t a free gift?
Honestly speaking, she had these burn marks because of Xie Jiling’s talisman.
But then, she was the one who had invited the fox spirit, so…
It was actually her fault.
Xiao Fengqing just wanted to treat her wounds. As such, she didn’t bother to haggle as she asked, “How much is it?”
“One hundred thousand.” Xie Jiling said.
“What?” Xiao Fengqing blurted out, “One hundred thousand for such a small bottle?”
Even a custom-made facemask wouldn’t be this expensive!
Xie Jiling didn’t feel bad for Xiao Fengqing at all. She just took the bottle of ointment back.
“If you think it is expensive, then never mind.”
“Wait!” Xiao Fengqing quickly stopped her. “I want it!”
Although it was expensive, a hundred thousand was not a lot to Xiao Fengqing.
She had much more money in her bank account.
“Then pay me.” Xie Jiling didn’t trust that Xiao Fengqing would keep her promise. “Pay me, and I will give you the ointment.”
Xiao Fengqing sulked and said, “How do I know if this ointment is effective? What if it is useless?”
Wouldn’t she be wasting her money, then?
Xie Jiling was not pressured by Xiao Fengqing at all as she said, “If you don’t trust me, don’t buy it. If you do, pay me.”
Xie Jiling didn’t care if she couldn’t sell this anyway.
She didn’t care whether Xiao Fengqing believed her or not.
Xie Jiling was too lazy to waste any words on Xiao Fengqing.
Xiao Fengqing recalled Xie Jiling’s strength.
She had defeated the fox spirit with one move, and she had such a good relationship with the members of the underworld.
Could her ointment be useless?
Xiao Fengqing realized something as she immediately said, “I will pay you!”
Her shoulder was still burning. She really couldn’t endure anymore.
She quickly transferred money to Xie Jiling, and Xie Jiling handed her the ointment.
After Xiao Fengqing rubbed the ointment on the wounds, the wounds stopped hurting.
The scar that she was worried about started looking better.
The wound didn’t disappear completely, but the areas that hadn’t gotten affected that much were already looking better.
Xie Jiling watched as Xiao Fengqing’s face lit up with joy. She then said, “The ointment has the effect of removing scars. It can’t remove ordinary scars, but it can remove scars caused by talismans. However, you won’t be able to remove those scars by applying the ointment just once. You can remove the scars if you keep applying, though.”
“Then… is one bottle enough?” Xiao Fengqing asked worriedly.
