Yan Yu noticed Ling Hua’an’s small movements.
He glanced at the place where Ling Hua’an was looking.
He took the initiative to discuss with Lu Hao what he would eat later, then distanced himself from Ling Hua’an.

Jiang Chengyan realized it later when he looked at Ling Hua’an.
As soon as he wanted to step forward to ask about the situation, he heard Ling Hua’an say, “Have you discussed it?”

Lu Hao replied, ” I and Yan Yu-ge found two.
One is a Chinese restaurant and the other is western restaurant.
The reviews are all good, I’m confused which one we should choose.”

“Since you are traveling to Licheng, then try the authentic Licheng cuisine.
You can eat western food anywhere.
” Ling Hua’an made a decision in a few words.

“Okay, then let’s go to Licheng’s home cooking.”

The four of them got in the car and followed the navigation for about ten minutes.
When they reached the gate of the restaurant, they parked the car.
Lu Hao and Yan Yu got out of the car one after another.

Ling Hua’an didn’t get out of the car, he lowered the car window and said, “You guys go in and order.
There’s something I have to say with Captain Jiang.”

Lu Hao looked at Jiang Chengyan and then at Ling Hua’an.
He was just about to tease them, but he was afraid that Yan Yu would feel sad when he heard it, so he swallowed the words.
Yan Yu understood that Ling Hua’an must have some business to do.
Although he was a little disappointed, he didn’t ask much.
He pulled Lu Hao into the restaurant first.

Jiang Chengyan just wanted to speak, then heard Ling Hua’an say, “Captain Jaing, wait for me outside.”

Jiang Chengyan frowned slightly, and whispered, ” be careful.
Call me if something happens.”

Seeing Ling Hua’an nodded, Jiang Chengyan got out of the car with an uneasy feeling, then waited outside while leaning in the window.

Ling Hua’an looked at the ghost sitting next to him and asked directly, “Why are you following me?”

“You can control the ghost for your own use.
You are not an ordinary person.
I want you to help me.” When Ling Hua’an asked it directly, the ghost also answered it to the point.

“Help you?” Ling Hua’an raised his eyebrows and said with interest, “Looking at your current situation, you should have recovered your memory.
Since you are entangled with an enemy, why don’t you use your own abilities to take revenge?”

“I’m a police officer.
Even if I died, I would still be a police officer.
I want to take revenge but I can’t fight violence with violence.
I want to make them face the law, so please help me.”

Even the resentful ghost, although entangled in resentment, was still dignified that makes Ling Hua’an feel respectful, “This is not my territory, I can not help you.
But I know who can help you.”

“Teority?” Resentful ghost’s eyes flashed blankly.

“Yes, you don’t need to ask more about this, I will contact the person who can help you.
But now you are full of resentment, and it is easy to hurt ordinary people outside.
I will temporarily lock you away, are you willing?” In respect, Ling Hua’an asked for the resentful ghost’s opinion.

The resentful ghost nodded, “Yes, I don’t want to hurt innocent people.”

Ling Hua’an took out the bell from his pocket, chanted the incantation.
In the blink of an eye, the resentful ghost disappears.
While keeping the bell away, Ling Hua’an asked softly, “”By the way, I still don’t know how to call you.”

“Lin Nanhang.” the resentful ghost paused before continuing, “are your friend Gao Yuan’s friend?”
Hearing Li Nanhang’s question, Ling Hua’an couldn’t help frowning and said, “Yes, he has a problem?”

“Yes.
Remind your friend not to get too close to him.”

“Okay, I get it.”

Ling Hua’an fumbled to open the car door.
Jiang Chengyan hurriedly pulled it open then helped him out of the car and asked, “Hua’an, what happened?”

Ling Hua’an clicked the bell in his pocket, temporarily blocked Li Nanhang’s contact with the outside world, and said with a smile, “If I tell Captain Jiang, what will I get?”

Jiang Chengyan was startled then said, “Hua’an, I’m asking something serious.”

Ling Hua’an smiled and said innocently, “I’m also asking something serious.
Why Captain Jiang don’t think I’m serious?”

Jiang Chengyan’s face became hot, and he said with some annoyance, “Hua’an, are you going to say it or not?”

“I don’t do things without benefits.” The smile under Ling Hua’an’s eyes grew thicker.

The two have been together for so long, Jiang Chengyan knows that Ling Hua’an will relax only when he has someone he recognizes, completely different from other people he usually associates with.
Just like now, Jiang Chengyan knew that Ling Hua’an was deliberately teasing him, which was also their unique way to get along.

“Then what benefits do you want?” Jiang Chengyan was relieved.

“I haven’t thought about it yet.
Let’s say that Captain Jiang owes me, wait for me to think about it.” Ling Hua’an said while squeezed Jiang Chengyan’s palm.

“How can a blank check1 work?” Jiang Chengyan blushed and jerked his hand away, but still not willing to leave.

“What’s wrong with the blank check? Isn’t Captain Jiang all mine? Is it possible that you want to back out?” Ling Hua’an took it for granted.

Jiang Chengyan was eaten to death, so he simply gave up his resistance and said with some embarrassment, “then now you can say what happened.”

“Since Captain Jiang accepted by blank check, of course I have to keep my word.” Ling Hua’an’s smile deepened.
He paused for a moment before continuing, “the two police officers on the mountain were entangled by the ghost.
I guess two of them must be doing something dirty, so I asked a favor to my friends from the underworld.
And there’s the ghost who found out my ability and followed me then asked me to help him to avenge him.”

“A resentful ghost?” Jiang Chengyan frowned and asked, “who is he? How did he die? Who is the murderer? Is there any evidence?”

Ling Hua’an chuckled, “Captain Jiang, are you interrogating a prisoner?” 

Jiang Chengyan was taken aback, feeling embarrassed, “it’s my profession habit.”

“His name is Li Nanhang.
He was also a police officer.
For the rest, I didn’t ask much.
Because this is not my teority, and I can’t go overboard.”

“Teority?” Jiang Chengyan asked in confusion, “what teority? How is it divided?”

“Basically, every city has their own spirit guide.
Every spirit guide has to manage a city and can’t cross any border.”

“I see.
Then who is the spirit guide in LinCheng? Do you know it?”

“I don’t know.” Ling Hua’an said helplessly, “Captain Jiang, “Are you a hundred thousand whys2? Why are you asking so many questions? I’m starving to death.
Should we go in first and have something to eat before continuing talking after we return to the hotel?”

Jiang Chengyan suddenly remembered that Ling Hua’an had a stomach problem, and quickly asked with concern, “Hua’an, how is your stomach? Are you feeling uncomfortable? It’s my fault, I forgot about it and asked you so many questions.”

“I’m fine, just a little hungry.
Let’s go in, don’t let them wait too long.”

When the two entered the dining room, the meal was not yet served.
Seeing them coming in, Yan Yu walked out from the private room and let the waiter serve the food and said, “the other dishes can be served later, bring porridge first.”

The waiter responded.
After a while he came with a tray, then put the congee next to Yan Yu, and said ” Sir, this is the congee that you want.
Enjoy the meal.”

Yan Yu nodded and handed the small bowl to Ling Hua’an, “Have some congee first.”

Ling Hua’an took the bowl and took a sip, “You guys drink too, pad your stomachs and eat something else.”

Yan Yu gave the bowl to Jiang Chengyan and Lu Hao before himself.
Jiang Chengyan felt a little uncomfortable when he saw Yanyu do it.
He was annoyed that he was not as careful as Yan Yu and couldn’t help comparing himself with Yan Yu.
He really wonders why Ling Hua’an doesn’t like Yan Yu and chooses himself?

The more Jiang Chengyan thought about it, the more confused he became.
He secretly held Long Hua’an’s hands.
Ling Hua’an was startled, a smile appeared in his eyes, then he squeezed his palm to comfort him.

The four of them talked and laughed.
It was already then o’clock when they’re done and they drove directly back to the hotel.
Back in the room, Ling Hua’an took out a paper talisman and recited the incantation silently, and a yin messenger appeared in front of him.
He is wearing an off-white coat, with long braids with gleaming small eyes and the mustache is particularly conspicuous.

“Mr.
Ling, you seem to be a little busy lately.”

“I’ve been a bit busy lately.” Ling Hua’an then said bluntly.

“Mr.
Hu, this time I’m bothering you to make a trip to ask who is the spirit guide in Lincheng and how to get in touch with him.”

“It’s simple, it’s just the reward ……”

“The reward is still the same as usual, Mr.
Hu need not worry.”

“Mr.
Ling has always been trustworthy.
So I’m not worried.
The spirit guide in Lin Ceng called Lin Shao.
He opened an antique shop in the ancient city of Licheng called Lin’s Antique Store.
Mr.
Ling should be able to find his store when come to the ancient city by searching it through mobile phone.”

“Okay, thank you Mr.
Hu.
I will burn the reward for you tomorrow.”

Hu Si saluted his hand and said with a smile, ” thank you Mr.
Ling for your generosity.
If there is nothing else, then I will go first.”

“Mr.
Hu, please go ahead.”

After waiting for a while, seeing that Ling Hua’an didn’t speak anymore, Jiang Chengyan couldn’t help but ask full of curiosity, “Hua’an, who were you talking to just now?”

“Want to know?” Ling Hua’an turned to look at Jiang Chengyan with a smile in his eyes.

Jiang Chengyan said helplessly, “You’re not asking the benefit of every question I ask, right?”

Ling Hua’an didn’t speak, and stretched out his arms.
Jiang Chengyan was startled and walked over with a blushing face.

Ling Hua’an wrapped his arm around Jiang Chengyan’s waist and said with a smile, “so, does Captain Jiang give it or not?”

“What do you want that I didn’t give…” Jiang Chanyan muttered and felt upset.

Ling Hua’an nodded and said, “Then kiss me and I will tell you.”

Jiang Chengyan subconsciously looked at Ling Hua’an’s lips.
He swallowed his saliva and leaned forward to kiss Ling Hua’an’s lips.
Just as he was about to let go, he was stopped.
Even if it was not the first time the two kissed, Jiang Chengyan’s reaction was still stiff as the first kiss, which made Ling Hua’an both helpless and delighted.
So every time Ling Hua’an kissed him, it was extremely tender and lingering, making Jiang Chengyan unconsciously sink into it.

Listening to Jiang Chengyan’s rough breathing in his ear, Ling Hua’an didn’t know whether he want to laugh or cry, “are you stupid? Every time you kiss, you forget to breathe.”

Jiang Chengyan, feeling  embarrassed, leaned on Ling Hua’an shoulder and whispered, “I …… I’m not used to it yet.”

Jiang Chengyan’s little coquettish tone pleased Ling Hua’an.  He chuckled and said, “My fault, I have to strengthen my training in that area in the future.” 

 Jiang Chengyan blushed even redder, “Then you should tell me now.”

“I asked the Yin from the underworld about the spirit guide in Lincheng and how to reach them.”

“Then what is the reward you are talking about? Paper money3?“

“Mr.
Hu likes to collect sneakers from major brands.
I will buy it tomorrow and burn it for him.”

“Sneakers? “Jiang Chengyan looked weird and asked, “Did you buy it only to burn it?”

Ling Hua’an nodded, “En.
otherwise?”

“Then how do you make sure that he is the one who received it?”

“When you burn it, you have to meditate on his name, and his birthday date.”

“Then how do you know him? What does he look like? How do you summon him?”

“Captain Jiang, don’t you think we should do something more meaningful for our first time staying together?”
