Shi Sheng was so hungry, she didn’t feel like going out. Liang Ge had already texted about helping her take a day off from school, so she didn’t have to go today.
“How were you injured?” Shi Sheng looked at Xi Yin, who was sitting comfortably on the sofa without a hint of unease at being in someone else’s home.
‘Well, you sure adapted quickly…’
Xi Yin lifted his head, a faint smile on his face. “You want to please me by helping me take revenge?”
“If that will make you happy, I don’t mind,” Shi Sheng calmly replied. ‘I mean, it’s just killing someone. How hard could it be?’
A hint of disdain appeared in Xi Yin’s eyes, angering Shi Sheng slightly. ‘What’s with that look, eh?! Do you not believe me?! Or maybe you just don’t have faith in me, huh?!’
“Tell me who did it! I’ll(lz) go kill them right now!” Shi Sheng walked over to his side, speaking aggressively as she leaned over him with a hand against the sofa.
“You’re not his match.” Xi Yin lowered his gaze, his tone placid.
“Bollocks! There’s never been anyone I couldn’t kill!” Shi Sheng gave a cold, arrogant scoff. ‘If I(bbb) could kill even those lunatics, what are normal humans in comparison? What? Don’t tell me that guy is even more formidable than the immortals in heaven?’
Xi Yin, “…” ‘Does this woman have violent tendencies or what? Talking about killing people this casually… Have you no femininity?’
XI Yin got up and changed the topic. “I’ll need to stay here for a few days to recuperate.”
“You’re still planning on leaving?” Shi Sheng raised a brow. ‘Thinking of leaving after you’ve entered my(lz) house? Do you think I’m(lz) running a hotel?’
“Naturally, I will leave after I’ve healed.” ‘If I don’t have to, why would I stay?’
“In your dreams.” A hint of a wicked smile appeared on Shi Sheng’s face. Her voice was light as she replied, “Just see what happens if you try to run.”
Xi Yin, “…” ‘Have I met a psycho…? Is it too late for me to leave?’
“Don’t presume you can attract my attention this way.” Xi Yin cast Shi Sheng a sideward glance. ‘Though I have to say, this method of attracting my attention is really…unique.’
“Who wants to get your attention?” Shi Sheng rolled her eyes. “It’s fine as long as my sights are set on you.”
Xi Yin’s brow furrowed slightly and he suddenly leaned towards Shi Sheng. His eyes, gleaming with a golden light, stared directly into Shi Sheng’s own. The latter looked back at him innocently.
Xi Yin tilted her chin up with one hand, his lips slowly curving into a smile. “You’re very bold. You may continue getting close to me…if you’re not afraid of dying, that is.”
Shi Sheng smacked his hand away and retreated to a safe distance. Until she was sure he was Feng Ci, she didn’t want to have any intimate contact with him.
‘Daring to get fresh with me, eh? We’ll settle this score after I’ve gotten my answer!
If you’re not Feng Ci, I’ll pummel you to death!
If you’re Feng Ci? Then we’ll settle this on the bed!’
Xi Yin took out a handkerchief from who-knows-where and proceeded to lightly rub his fingers, as if he had touched something dirty and was now cleaning it off..
Shi Sheng, “…”
Shi Sheng went upstairs. She was afraid she wouldn’t be able to resist hacking this fellow to death if she stayed with him any longer.
Shi Sheng shifted the coffin out of the room and tossed it into the storeroom.
She also moved out some of the older furniture, making the once cramped room much more spacious.
Her gaze landed on the painting hanging on the wall. Every time Shi Sheng saw it, she’d always feel a slight discomfort. After pondering for a bit, she took it down and was just about to put it away when a faint voice echoed out from behind her.
“Where did you get that painting?”
Shi Sheng turned to look at the person who had appeared at the doorway. Xi Yin was leaning against the doorframe. Not even his simple attire could mask his noble elegance.
Shi Sheng rolled up the painting and shoved it in a drawing tube before speaking, “Dunno. It’s been here for as long as I can remember.”
Shi Sheng couldn’t find anything in Mi Nai’s memories relating to this painting. It seemed like it had always been there.
“Then why are you putting it away now?”
“Don’t you find it stifling to look at?” Shi Sheng raised her head, her gaze serene.
Xi Yin fell silent for a moment before suddenly speaking with a smile, “I like it a lot.”
Shi Sheng frowned.
Xi Yin continued, “I want to see it.”
“You want me to indulge you?” Shi Sheng gave an empty smile.
“If you can’t even do that, how can you say that you like me?” Xi Yin spoke in a very matter-of-fact tone, disdain growing on his face.
“Because you’re good-looking.”
‘Competing in whose more shameless eh? When I(bbb) turn shameless, I(bbb) even scare myself!’
Xi Yin, “…”
‘Ha, I knew it. It was because of my looks. This shallow woman!’
His smile receded as he placed a piece of paper on the cabinet beside him. “These are the things I need.”
Shi Sheng walked over, picked the paper up, and scanned through its contents. She then cast a strange look at Xi Yin.
The latter’s lips rose once more. “If you want to please me, then do as I say.”
Shi Sheng threw the paper in his face and sneered, “Don’t get all uppity with me. I scare even myself when I’m provoked!”
The paper slowly drifted to the ground.
Xi Yin, “…” ‘What happened to liking me? This liar…’
Shi Sheng picked up the painting and took a couple of steps before doubling back and pointing at the room opposite hers. “You sleep in that room.”
Xi Yin frowned. The door to that room was wide open so he could see that it was completely bare. He then returned his gaze to Shi Sheng’s room. “I want to sleep here.”
“If you’re not afraid of getting screwed by me, then come on over.” Shi Sheng’s eyes curved upwards in a smile as she spoke.
Xi Yin, “…” ‘This shameless woman!’
He angrily entered the room opposite hers, stepping on the paper in the process.
Shi Sheng stared at it for a moment.
Shi Sheng felt like vampires were not only a fussy race, they were also a bunch of spendthrifts. Pretty much all their clothing had to be made by hand, and imported from overseas at that.
By the time Shi Sheng finished making the calls to confirm the orders, the money in Mi Nai’s card had nearly been completely squandered.
‘How did vampires earn money again…? No one told me!’
It seemed like vampires didn’t need to earn money, since they all appeared to have vast fortunes at their disposal…
Shi Sheng turned on her computer and did some basic research on this world. After completing her research, she opened up the stock trading market.
The Money-Making Princess had logged on.
Once Shi Sheng invested the rest of her funds into the stock market, she was already poor enough to eat dirt.
‘So hungry…’ Shi Sheng rubbed her belly.
She got up to leave the room and found the door to the opposing room tightly shut. ‘Wonder what he’s doing in there…’
Just as she was hesitating, the door was suddenly pulled open.
“Let’s go out to eat.” Xi Yin looked at her.
Shi Sheng raised her brow. “You wanna go drink blood?”
‘To vampires, eating means drinking blood right? I didn’t expect you to be the type, villain-sama!’
“Eat food.” Xi Yin emphasised, after which Shi Sheng understood.
“You’re a vampire. How’re you going to eat food?” Shi Sheng felt speechless. ‘You’re not afraid of getting indigestion?’
Xi Yin’s gaze burned as he looked at her.
Shi Sheng shrugged. “No money. We’re gonna have to eat dirt.”
‘This fellow’s definitely going to one of those fancy high-class places where a meal would cost more than 10k! I don’t have the money for him to spend right now!’
Xi Yin, “…”
He turned around and returned to the room, re-emerging a moment later. He handed her a card. It was a normal-looking card, not like one of those limited-edition black VIP cards.
Shi Sheng, “…” ‘Very good. This villain-sama is very down to earth.’
 I’m not sure if this is a pun or not. She’s referring to the immortals from the previous arc but the term used here was “神经病” where “神” means god.
 The term used here “小公举” was based off of “小公主”, which means little princess, and according to Baidu is used to refer to men who have some ladylike behaviours, but aren’t sissies.
 The term used here was “本少” which is usually used by young masters. So… “You’ve caught this young master’s attention!” ML Sheng confirmed! Ahem, well I supposed the 少 could technically be used in conjunction with either 爷 or 女, the latter of which would make it more feminine but… ML Sheng all the way!!! The reason I didn’t just put this in the abbreviation section in the content page was because I believe this term appears like once in the whole novel. I could be wrong though…
