“Mom, dad, don’t go. That village isn’t clean.”
Seeing my lowered head, they discussed among themselves before giving me a smile and said, “Xiao Hua…your dad and I know of how heavy the presence of Yin is in that village. After all, ‘The Gates of Hell’ is situated there too.”
“And in order to rid you of those demons and ghosts, we must return to the village and ask the witch. Only she can help you.”
I opened my mouth again in an attempt to stop them; but instead, they reassured me and patted me on my shoulder.
“No need to worry. We’re still young, nothing will happen to us. Didn’t we return to the village many times in the past? It shouldn’t be a problem for us.”
As I listened, it felt reasonable even though the words from the pervert constantly echoed in my mind.
As such, all I could do was pray for them and their safety. If something were to happen to them, I would definitely blame myself for it.
“Rest assured.” My dad laughed gently. Though I could feel his bitterness, he went on, “it has been tough on you, my Xiao Hua.”
Since young, he had encountered a number of scary things in his village. Being able to leave the village and study in a university in the city, he was not influenced by the old tale.
However, misfortune could not be escaped from and his precious daughter was not able to escape from the “bridal offering”.
“Xiao Hua, you have to take good care of yourself while we’re not around.”
“En.” I nodded my head. With that, I was left alone in my room.
Tired of the dramas that replayed for over a million times on the television, I laid on my bed and relaxed under the cool breeze from the air-conditioner.
The sky was getting dark and my parents went to attend the family gathering. I switched the television channel using the remote control. From time to time, it would play a horror movie.
Under the ghastly green light, a hairy demon with a mouth full of fangs suddenly jumped out. The actress was so scared that she screamed at the top of her voice as she fled.
In the past, I would have been scared. But after seeing the scene displayed in the television, I somehow sensed no fear in me.
I heard myself say, “do all evil spirits in the other side of the gate look like this? Aren’t they a little too ugly?”
I heard a scorn beside me. A chill, different from the cold air that was blown out by the air-conditioner, which felt like a pair of icy claws touching the back of my neck.
A pair of powerful arms suddenly came at me from behind and the long black hair touched my shoulders.
“Why look at those demons when you can look at me?”
I almost choked on my saliva. Why did this pervert return to pester me again?
I could say that even until now, I was still not used to the chill behind me. It felt as if the one behind me was a man made of ice. I could not help but shudder, and at the same time, my body trembled.
“Why…did you come…?”
My body trembled without a stop and I struggled to break free from his hug only to find that the pair of arms that were holding me back were as hard as steel. No matter how hard I struggled, I could not break free.
“Let go of me…”
“Hua’er, you’re my wife, and my queen. So how can I not come to see you?” The cold mask rested on the side of my neck and he whispered softly into my ear.
“Also, I’d like to praise you for being obedient and did not return to the small village. But now, I should take that back since you’re not being obedient anymore.” His hands started to fondle under my clothes. I was scared stiff and my body dared not move, except for my two hands which were trying to seize his pair of indecent hands from going any further.
“I’m… I’m pregnant! We should not be doing this kind of things.”
The pervert ignored my words and pushed me down onto the bed. His long black hair hung down his body and his slender pale fingers began to work on undoing my sweater.
“Don’t worry, that little guy isn’t so weak. I’m sure he’d hoped his father and mother would do those kinds of things.”
Only a demon would hope so! My heart screamed those words out. It took a long while for a reaction, though it did seemed supportive.
The little guy in my stomach truly is a demon.
Using all the strength I had, I still could not break free. I could only give up on resistance.
I looked straight at the scary mask and my hand involuntarily raised, in an attempt to touch the mask.
Behind this mask, just what kind of face will it be?
My hand was just a few centimeters away from his mask, but it was grasp tightly and I could feel a strong chill down my wrist. He pulled my wrist tightly and my body was slightly raised.
His fingers slowly lifted my chin and he brought his mask closer to my face.
“That eager to see how I look?”
I do not why but I swallowed a mouthful of saliva and nodded. Immediately realizing what I did, I quickly shook my head.
“No. No. Nothing…”
“Ah, deceitful.” He swiftly lifted both my hands above my head and held it there with a hand. Both my legs were also pressed tightly by him.
Suddenly, my body felt numb and could not move. But what I do know was that I could still feel his hand taking off my clothes layer after layer…

"The aura of an ancestral artifact!" Someone's voice rose in surprise.
The Great Galactic Era had begun.
