While catching her breathe, Jin Lan sat up. She supported her head and felt a sticky substance. Without knowing whether it might ruin her appearance, she rubbed the corners of her lips.
Darkness lies before her, she felt a rock wall and used it to stand up. She took out a kindling from her chest and ignited it. The dim yellow light slowly brightens up, Jin Lan squinted her eyes before she started to survey around the rock room.
Once she had clearly seen the appearance of the indoor, she was stunned, sitting behind the old long table was actually a pile of white bones.
Jin Lan calmed herself, she knew that Xiu Lin, that old hag definitely did many sinful acts.
The whole area was sealed, even the entrance which Jin Lan rolled in could no longer be found. She punched the wall before shifting her attention to the table. Moving behind the white bones on the table, she found another set lying behind the chair. In closer inspection, this new found bones had a tint of black in them. There was a dagger in front of the pile, it seems that the owner of this set of bones was poisoned before meeting his demise. By the leg of the bones, there was a white candle which Jin Lan picked up and lit it up.
On the long table lies a brush, ink, paper and ink slab and before the white bones were a bunch of papers which bore visible ink stains on the aged paper. Jin Lan blew the dust on the surface and read. “Bai Mei my husband, I know the time I have is limited as I recall the moments we have in the past, it fills me with regrets. However, all I wish now is my husband and child to be safe, healthy and live a long life. I have copied the scriptures in order to pray for the well being of my child and husband. Regretfully yours, Wife Mei Shuang.
Looking back at bones behind the chair, Jin Lan rose her brows, it seems that this letter was for naught, that old hag sent the husband down to accompany her just shortly after.
Rummaging through, there was indeed a copy of Jin Kang Scripture neatly done. The table did not have any unnecessary items on it, everything can be moved, as a result the chances of a trap was slim.
Knitting her brows, Jin Lan did not expect Cui Xiu Lin to suddenly have a change of heart and let her go. Could it be that she was going to meet her demise here?
Laughing, she sat herself down and looked at the bones on the ground. “Who would have thought that I, Hua Jin Lan who died so foolishly and stupidly in my previous life, am going to die in a similar fashion even in this life. Heavens really love to play with people’s lives.”
“Pa!” Something made a sound and Jin Lan turned her head, only to see that the bones that were on the chair came apart. She rolled her eyes before walking slowly towards it and picked it up. When the clothes came loose, a oddly shaped jade pendant dropped out, Jin Lan placed the two bones together before picking up the pendant.
A piece of translucent emerald jade, it’s shape was as though similar to the new moon, looking very thin and fragile as though if a small amount of force was applied it would break. However what truly made Jin Lan surprise was that she had a feeling that she saw this jade before. She thought hard about it and kept looking at the jade, she was certain she had saw this before, it was just that she just could not remember.
“Rumble….” Jin Lan suddenly lifted her head : The opposite wall started to shake and slowly opened up.
