Chapter 74 – The Duke’s Heir vs Abandoned Woman’s Counterattack (14)
Gu Shengyin was aware of his brutality from his identity as Demon King. Although she was baffled at why he did not directly ask for her soul, she still agreed to the contract.
The Demon King saw Gu Shengyin’s consent. He was very satisfied. He called out to Gu Shengyin: “Come here.”
Gu Shengyin walked towards him.
The Demon King extended his illusionary hand and pointed at Gu Shengyin’s forehead. He chanted a mysterious spell forming a mystic rune.
Black mist gushed out from the Demon King with the spell and slowly wrapped around Gu Shengyin’s body.
Gu Shengyin was surprised that the expected pain did not appear. She remembered that in the story when Eve Heather and the Demon King had signed the master-servant contract, it was very painful.
System: “Of course you don’t feel pain. You just signed a symbiotic contract with him.”
Gu Shengyin: “Oh, so it was like this…Wait, what did you just say?”
Symbiotic contract? Gu Shengyin was really surprised by this. The symbiotic contract was exactly as its name and it was not something to be messed around with. Those who have signed the symbiotic contract would be tied together. You live, I live. You die, I die.
Did the Demon King cast the wrong spell?
The Demon King looked funnily at the little girl who stared blankly at himself.
“Why?” Gu Shengyin asked. “Why would you sign a symbiotic contract with me?”
She did not believe that the Demon King would be very good-hearted.
The Demon King held his chin: “Maybe because you look good so I fell in love with you at first sight.”
Gu Shengyin gave him a supercilious look for his answer.
“Hold it!” A necklace flew into Gu Shengyin’s arms. The necklace was a black diamond-shaped crystal. She did not know what the chain was made of, but it shined like a star.
“My soul is now living in this necklace. You must take care of it.”
Without needing him to tell her, Gu Shengyin would still take good care of him. After all, the lives of both of them were connected. She still cherished her own life and she still had to find her lover afterwards.

The Demon King’s next request once again broke Gu Shengyin’s mind.
“Finding the fountain of life?”
The Demon King nodded frankly: “My body has long been burned down. Now, only my soul is imprisoned in this Xinguang chain. Naturally, I need the fountain of life to cultivate my spiritual body and reshape my physical body.”
Gu Shengyin was once again surprised: “System, didn’t the Demon King rely on absorbing souls to quickly recover? Why did he take the gentle route now?”
System: There were too many unreasonable spots in the world. The problem was that it couldn’t find any reason at all!
Seeing that the system remained silent, Gu Shengyin understood: This meant that the system had no way to answer her.
However, for Gu Shengyin, this was a good thing.
The “reformed” Demon King and her symbiotic contract would be much less troublesome in the future.
When Eve woke up, she was dizzy from what she saw.
She had never seen such a bright and beautiful house. Furthermore, she had never slept on such a soft bed.
The pain from her leg told her that this was not a dream.
Subconsciously, she reached for the necklace on her neck. Unexpectedly, there was nothing.
Eve immediately panicked and struggled to get up.
“Miss, are you awake? Is there anything that I can help you?” Hearing the movement inside, the maid saw Eve’s appearance and was startled.
