Arc 1 – Princess Substitution Marriage

ヾ(о-ω・)ノ⌒★ Note: Because this arc is so confusing, the original plot of the story will be referred to as the ‘original plot’, the plot where the arc world was changed will be called ‘new plot’ and the story plot with our Su Wan in it will be referred to as the ‘current’ plot. 

 

This arc was set in the Great Xia Dynasty. The main lead is Xuan Yuan Qing and he’s the unfavoured Fifth Prince. He moved out of the palace when he was sixteen and moved into the Qin Wangfu that was bestowed to him by his daddy (who doesn’t like him much, or at all), the Emperor.

When Xuan Yuan Qing reached a marriageable age, no one wanted to marry their daughters off to him due to his bad temper and also because his legs were deformed (no one knew that his legs got better a loooong time ago and he’s just using it as a cover to plot for the throne, the usual stuff). So, he hatched a plan with the teachers of the state to pull Ye family into his camp. He put on a play where he was afflicted by a serious illness. This severe illness can only be resolved by marrying a lady who had an identical Eight Characters as his to ward of this “bad fortune”.

The person who matched this was the Imperial Censor Ye’s dear official daughter, Ye Zhi Hua. When Mr. Imperial Censor and his wife found that their daughter’s Eight Characters matched the Fifth Prince’s, they were devastated. Ye Zhi Hua hatched a plan that would let the family conceal the substitution and also preserve their dignity. The plan: Get her younger sister (who’s a concubine’s daughter, so she has no say in this) who was born 2 hours later than her (which woud probably mean that their Eight Characters were similar to each others) to replace her in this marriage because Ye Zhi Hua already liked someone else ( Third Prince, Xuan Yuan Rui).

The younger sister, Ye Zhi Jin, was meek in temperament and appearance which irritated Xuan Yuan Qing, so he killed her (method unspecified). Three days later, a transmigrator occupied Ye Zhi Jin’s body and became the new Ye Zhi Jin. This Ye Zhi Jin is this realm’s female lead. She got on Xuan Yuan Qing’s good side and ended up together with him. They plotted together to make Ye Jia fall and get the throne.

In the original plot, Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Jin were successful. They defeated the Third Prince, Xuan Yuan Rui and fell Ye Jia, who stood on the Third Prince’s side. Ye Jia was executed till the third generation. In the end, Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Jin became Emperor and Empress.

However, our dear female lead of this arc just had  to tell Ye Zhi Hua (who was imprisoned till her execution) that she wasn’t the old Ye Zhi Jin. The old Ye Zhi Jin died and she was a soul that transmigrated over from another world. Ye Zhi Hua was later beheaded, bringing her deep regrets with her. These deep regrets caused her to reincarnate.

In the new plot, Ye Zhi Hua was reborn a month after Ye Zhi Jin married into Qin Wangfu. Ye Zhi Hua knows that Ye Zhi Jin had died and was possessed by another soul. So, Ye Zhi Hua used her knowledge and experience from her past life to counterattack. She married Third Prince, Xuan Yuan Rui, who was her husband in her past life, but he didn’t bother with her. She also persuaded her family to stand on the Third Prince’s side. Thus, begins the fight for the throne between {Xuan Yuan Rui & Ye Zhi Hua (reincarnated)} vs {Xuan Yuan Qing & Ye Zhi Jin (transmigrated)}. DING DING DING, FIGHT!

Naturally, Xuan Yua Rui and Ye Zhi Hua won. Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Jin were going to be put to death, BUT at this point, our dear MC Su Wan enters the realm!

Now, this is where the character, Su Wan comes in.

Original plot: Ye Zhi Hua married into Yue Wangfu, but Xuan Yuan Rui and Su Wan were deeply in love with each other. So, Xuan Yuan Rui didn’t care about Ye Zhi Hua at all. Su Wan died of her illness, leaving behind a broken-hearted Xuan Yuan Rui who was later defeated and executed (probably) with Ye Zhi Hua because he lost in the fight for the throne.

New plot: Ye Zhi Hua seduced Xuan Yuan Rui when he was drunk. She got him to marry her and gradually made him distant from his former childhood sweetheart, Su Wan. He gradually got colder to her because of the incident involving Ye Zhi Hua and Su Wan falling into a pond, causing Ye Zhi Hua to miscarry. Former Su Wan was banished to the cold yuan with her confidant, Lu Zhu.

Current plot: When Su Wan woke up in the cold yuan, Xuan Yuan Rui & Ye Zhi Hua were watching Xuan Yuan Qing & Ye Zhi Jin get beheaded. 1

Now, Su Wan starts putting her plan into action. She wrote a letter home which her younger, sis-con brother took over. Lu Zhu delivers this letter to An Wu, who delivered the letter to Su Rui. After doing this, she took a nap. When she woke up, she saw Physician Si and proceeded to use him to achieve her goal.  He euthanized Su Wan (former) in the new plot because Ye Zhi Hua thought that she was pitiful. In the current story line, Su Wan charmed him, made him fall in love with her, used him, and finally threw him away. Very sinister and badass.

On the day Ye Zhi Hua was officially titled as Yue Wangfei, replacing Su Wan, Su Rui interrupted Su Wan as she was making Physician Si fall even more for her. Su Rui came to take Su Wan away from Yue Wangfu and bring her back to Su Jia. Before leaving Yue Wangfu, they didn’t forget to crash the party with a hell of an entrance that made everyone in the hall shocked. There, Su Wan gracefully divorced with Xuan Yuan Rui, and left with Su Rui. Su Rui has a yandere, siscon episode in the carriage with Su Wan and thinks back of the day when Su Wan married into Xuan Yuan Rui. After Su Rui brings her back to Su fu (which is the General’s fu bc their dad’s a very important General), he pampers her like there’s no tomorrow.

Su Rui even saved Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Hua from their execution and brought Su Wan to meet them so that she can hatch plans with them. The deal was: In return for Su Jia helping them make a comeback, Su Wan gets her revenge on Xuan Yuan Rui and Ye Zhi Hua.

Su Wan got Su Rui to get Physician Si to treat her using her awesome acting skills. She continued working her charm on Physician Si and got him to teach her how to make poisons, since he was a Poisons Master.

This was where things started to go wrong for Xuan Yuan Rui and gang. The Emperor impeached Xuan Yuan Rui and Imperial Censor Ye because of Su Wan’s matter. He only did it after Su Rui rose up and fought back for Su Wan. Xuan Yuan Rui was advised by a Taoist preist to divorce with Ye Zhi Hua and get back together with Su Wan because, ever since he made Ye Zhi Hua his Wangfei, everything started to go downhill. Xuan Yuan Rui became doubtful of Ye Zhi Hua’s Eight Characters and started investigating. He found that she switched her Eight Characters with Ye Zhi Jin’s. Xuan Yuan Rui then started coming up with wild theories which he believed to be true about why Ye Zhi Hua deceived him. Xuan Yuan Rui gradually became more distant from Ye Zhi Hua.

Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Jin made their respective moves to get revenge. Xuan Yuan Qing went to gather his forces outside the capital while Ye Zhi Jin went to Ye Zhi Hua’s place to frighten her senseless.

A war of rumours occured and everyone found out that Su Wan and Xuan Yuan  Rui never “did it” throughout the four years they were married. So, the other Princes decided to try and make Su Wan their Wangfei to gain Su Jia’s support. Xuan Yuan Rui thought that getting Su Wan back would be easy because he ws convinced that she was infatuated with him. 2Su Wan ended up directly confessing to Physician Si during a banquet that was held when their dad, Su Yu Feng, Generalissimo of the Dynasty, came back from protecting the borders.

Xuan Yuan Rui went home in disappointment and stormed off to Ye Zhi Hua’s courtyard to relieve his stress. Ye Zhi Hua didn’t expect him to come since he had been avoiding her lately. When he pressed on her when she was asleep, she thought the ghosts of Ye Zhi Jin and Xuan Yuan Qing came for revenge. She took out a pair of scissors and started blindly slashing. Xuan  Yuan Rui’s cheek got scratched and his sleeve ripped. He got angry and slapped her. Ye Zhi Hua wakes up from her moment of insanity, tried to pounce onto Xuan Yuan Rui, but Xuan Yuan Rui wasn’t having it and left her room after insulting her.

After the banquet, Su Rui and Su Yu Feng had an epic fight that lasted for quite a while. Su Rui then heads to Su Wan’s room and threatens to castrate Physician Si if she was actually going to marry him. Su Wan teases him and asks Su Rui what he would do if the person she was going to marry was him. Su Rui was stunned speechless. He ran back to his room, thought about this for a whole night and goes back to Su Wan’s room. He tells her that he knows that she isn’t truly his sister, so it’s OKAY to marry her! He then falls unconscious onto Su Wan. Su Wan didn’t want him to mess with her plans, especially at this critical point. So, she shouts for help and frames him. Long story short (which is the whole point of this summary), Su Yu Feng put Su Rui out of action for a good long while. Physician Si tried to treat Su Rui, but he wouldn’t wake up from his coma.

Moving on, Su Wan attends the New Year’s feast that the Emperor held every year. Xuan Yuan Qing bursts into the party with an army behind him and burning buildings in the background. He goes a bit crazy and kills his dad, the Emperor, Xuan Yuan Po. No one else could move because they were poisoned by the poison in the food. Su Wan handed out the “antidote” only to those who swore loyalty to Xuan Yuan Qing. This “antidote” turned out to be highly toxic poison. The true antidote was in the incense that was burnt before she handed out the “antidote” like free candy. Su Wan then proceeded to cleanly cut herself off from Xuan Yuan Qing. It turns out, she was actually working with Xuan Yuan Ye, the Fourth Prince.

Xuan Yuan Ye became the Emperor and was going to marry Su Wan. However, when Su Wan was travelling to the palace, Su Rui ambushed her. They had a one-sided emotional moment (Su Rui’s side, of course) as Su Wan disappeared and returned to Realm Destroyer HQ.

Oh yeah, Xuan Yuan Rui was imprisoned with Ye Zhi Hua in a small courtyard with no servants at all and Xuan Yuan Rui killed Ye Zhi Hua in a bout of insanity, and he blamed her for all his mistakes. Xuan Yuan Qing and Ye Zhi Jin were beheaded and their heads were displayed on top of the gates to scare thieves and robbers.

This part’s a bit of a spoiler if you haven’t read past this arc. 3

Arc 2 – The Ninth Nightmare [Not proofread yet bc I wanna sleep]

Yi Zi Xuan was an ordinary college student. After he broke up with Su Wan due to having different values, he smashed the jade pendant he bought for her in a bout of insanity. His blood dripped onto the jade pendant which then attached itself to his skin and him the ability to go back in time. Using this, he became popular in college. Though Su Wan felt some regret, she never got back with him.

To pursue Meng Ting Yao, the campus beauty, a rich second generation named Chen Yu Feng organised a spring outing. He asked his childhood friend, Qi Mu to drive because he wasn’t confident enough in his driving. A total of nine people went to the outing: Su Wan, Fang Tian Tian, Meng Ting Yao and Bai Xiao Yue from Room 503, and Yi Zi Xuan, Qin Lu, Chen Yu Feng and Fan Shu Jun from Room 305, and finally, Qi Mu. On the way to their destination, they came across an accident and decided to make a detour. In this way, they entered the world of the Ninth Nightmare.

In the first layer of the dreamworld, they went through experiences together that made them fearful, and finally everyone woke up in the vehicle and realized that they had a really long dream. Every two hours, the people in the bus would fall asleep without notice and would enter the next layer of the dreamworld.

In the second layer of the dreamworld, the nine people were informed by a voice that among them was a person that already died in the first layer of the dreamworld and the world where they eight living people were in was the nightmare world of that ninth person. That person (ghost) would kill in this world….

Our MC, Su Wan, woke up in the middle of a dense mountain forest from the sound of Fang Tian Tian desperately calling her. When Su Wan opened her eyes, only Fang Tian Tian, who was all dressed in blue, was there. Last she remembered, she was on the bus listening to some songs with Fang Tian Tian and fell asleep.

Su Wan guesses that they were in the first layer of the nightmare and remembers that in the original story, the first person to die in this layer was Fang Tian Tian while she was the second to die. After gathering her thoughts, she and Fang Tian Tian started to walk around the vast forest, hoping to find heir companions. After they were startled by a bat when they sat to rest, they came across Qi Mu. The merry three then banded together to look for others. Qi Mu suggests to light a bonfire in an opening in the forest that he saw earlier and wait for the others to come to them. Fang Tian Tian agreed while Su Wan remained expressionless.

After setting up and lighting up the bonfire, the three sat around the fire. Fang Tian Tian drifted off to sleep first, and then shortly after, Su Wan fell sleep as well. Qi Mu got up and went into the woods behind him. Su Wan reached into her bag to have a look at the tissue she wiped her face with after she was scratched by the bat. Her face turned ugly. Qi Mu then appears from the woods behind Su Wan, startling her. His excuse was that he needed to go to the toilet. To avoid suspicion, Su Wan also says that she needs to go to the toilet. Qi Mu returns to his spot and lies down.

Su Wan went into the woods behind her and sat on a rock. She looked at the screen of the cellphone which emitted a faint white light. She subconsciously looked at the time and it was unexpectedly 10:50 pm and the cellphone battery still had two bars.

When she was staring at the screen, her phone suddenly rang, displaying the caller ID, Fan Shu Jun. Su Wan answered the phone and what she heard was: “Ninth……the ninth…..the ninth…..Meng”.

The phone call disconnected and Su Wan fixedly stared at her phone screen. The whole screen changed back to how it was before. There was still no signal, there were still two bars, but the time…..was still 10:50!

The next day, Su Wan woke up to the smell of something fragrant. Qi Mu was roasting rabbit meat. They had a short chat and Qi Mu handed Su Wan some roasted rabbit. Fang Tian Tian then wakes up and joins in on the rabbit meat party.

After that, they set off in a direction, hoping to find their companions, or at least, finding a way out of these woods. They ended up coming across a bamboo house. While Su Wan was contemplating why there was a bamboo house when there wasn’t one in data she got of the first layer of the dreamworld, Qin Lu appeared. They had a short exchange and Qin Lu led them to the bamboo house. Qi Mu and Su Wan were suspicious and slowed down their pace, but Fang Tian Tian blindly follows him.

Qin Lu shouted loudly into the house and Yi Zi Xuan and Chen Yu Feng appeared. When Fang Tian Tian stepped into the bamboo house, the house started to distort into a black hole. Chen Yu Feng, Qin Lu and Yi Zi Xuan also distorted and became black fog and slowly engulfed Fang Tian Tian. As Fang Tian Tian melted to bones, she reached out, trying to stab Su Wan’s heart.

Qi Mu saves and and pulled her along with him as he ran into the woods without looking back. The black mist followed them everywhere they went. Even the trees started attacking them. While they were attacked by trees from all sides, Qi Mu shielded Su Wan with his body and Su Wan shouts at him to wake up.

Qi Mu woke up, drenched in cold sweat. He looked around and saw that Su Wan and Fang Tian Tian were still asleep across the burnt-out bonfire. He subconsciously groped his body, but he couldn’t remember what happened in the dream. Qi Mu was terrified and ended up not sleeping for the whole night. When Su Wan and Fang Tian Tian woke up, he took out some canned food and some biscuits.

After they hurriedly ate something, they started figuring out how to get out of the woods. This time, Su Wan suggested a direction to walk in. This was the direction where she came across Qin Lu. They didn’t manage to meet their companions nor did they manage to find a way out. After walking for some time, Bai Xiao Yue appears. They had a short exchange and Fang Tian Tian suggests that she come with them to look for the others. As she put her hand on Bai Xiao Yue’s shoulder, her hand immediately dissipated, leaving only white, sharp bones that pierced Bai Xiao Yue’s shoulder.

At a speed visible to the naked eye, Fang Tian Tian became a white skeleton. Bai Xiao Yue’s hair kept growing longer till it covered her whole body which came at Su Wan and Qi Mu at full speed.

Su Wan pulled Qi Mu and ran. They kept running until a shadow stopped them from moving forwards. The faceless female ghost stood before them, her hair violently swaying in the non-existent wind. Suddenly, Su Wan pushed Qi Mu away.

Su Wan then opened her eyes. The early morning breeze brought a slight chill in the air, beside her was the bonfire that burned out a long time ago. Fang Tian Tian woke up due to Su Wan’s movements.

Fang Tian Tian mentions that she was hungry and Su Wan opened Qi Mu’s bag and took out some canned food. Qi Mu was still asleep, his complexion not too good. Fang Tian Tian asks how she knew that Qi Mu had canned food in his bag. Su Wan replied that she accidentally saw it. While the two were eating, Qi Mu woke up. He looked at them with a complicated expression. He definitely remembered the dream.

After they ate, they discussed what to do. This time, Su Wan suggests that they don’t go anywhere. Day turned to night and Fang Tian Tian slept first, like always. Qi Mu kept staring at the bonfire, refusing to sleep. Su Wan didn’t sleep as well. She was waiting for tonight’s prelude and also perhaps waiting for an opportunity to bring this to a close.

As the night turned darker, Su Wan was still waiting and Qi Mu was playing games on his phone. He loses his temper because he was frustrated that it wasn’t 11pm yet. Su Wan was surprised at his words, but Qi Mu didn’t notice.

It was right at this moment when a burst of disorderly footsteps were heard from the woods. Su Wan and Qi Mu glanced at each other and held their breaths. Meng Ting Yao and Fan Shu Jun appeared. Fan Shu Jun was supporting Meng Ting Yao, who’s leg was bleeding. “I didn’t expect the two of you to be together.” said Meng Ting Yao.

Su Wan and Qi Mu froze and turned to look at where Fang Tian Tian was supposed to be, but she disappeared! Meng Ting Yao asks what’s going on and Qi Mu explains that Fang Tian Tian was just here. Fan Shu Jun raises a question, asking whether Fang Tian Tian was wearing blue sportswear. When he was asked how he knew, he awkwardly switched the topic and mentioned a game called ‘The Second World’ and its story line. As they had a short exchange, Su Wan ponders about the meaning of what Fan Shu Jun told her over the phone call earlier. Su Wan then asks them if they came across anything strange. Meng Ting Yao says that she came across Qin Lu and Bai Xiao Yue. Before she could finish her sentence, Su Wan says that they were dead.

The three people looked at Su Wan and she tells them her conjecture: “If I’m not mistaken, right now, we are still in a dream. A continuous dream. We believe that we are clear-headed from waking up from the dream, but in fact, we are actually crossing over from a deep dream to an even deeper dream.”

Qi Mu panics, Meng Ting Yao was calm and Fan Shu Jun asks Su Wan if a node that connects to reality exists. Su Wan says that it does exist and explains that she was pulled into this dreamworld at around 10:50pm as that was when the clock on her phone stopped. That was also when Fan Shu Jun called. The four people had a brief exchange and decided to wait where they were for Yi Zi Xuan and Chen Yu Feng. They never appeared.

During her night shift to keep watch, Su Wan sat beside the still awake Fan Shu Jun what he was thinking of as he stared into the night sky. The had an exchange and it was revealed that Fan Shu Jun liked Fang Tian Tian, and that Fang Tian Tian never ever wore blue because it didn’t go well with her skin tone.

After knowing this, Su Wan did some self-reflection and realised that this layer of her dream was reflecting her innermost heart. The bamboo house was from a painting that Yi Zi Xuan gave her. Fang Tian Tian being all bones was also because she already had it in her mind that Fang Tian Tian was dead. Su Wan also realised that she was calculated against. She then closed her eyes and put herself in Yi Zi Xuan’s shoes, thinking what he would do.  After realising that Yi Zi Xuan would not appear in this layer of dreams, Su Wan didn’t stay in the forest any longer.

When she opened her eyes again, she found herself in a hospital. She goes to look for Yi Zi Xuan and Qin Lu. After speaking with each other for a bit, she went to look for Fang Tian Tian, Bai Xiao Yue and Meng Ting Yao. From this conversation, she found out that Chen Yu Feng and Bai Xiao Yue were in a coma.

Su Wan returned to her room to sleep. As she was sleeping, a black clump appeared by her window and formed a black Arabic numeral 5.

After three days, Su Wan was discharged from the hospital and was picked up by her parents. They left her in their small apartment to go back to work, leaving her alone. Su Wan went to sleep after watching some TV. She dreamt of the day they went for the spring outing. It was raining very heavily and it was chaotic in the car. Yi  Zi Xuan suddenly yelled at Qi Mu to stop the car. Qi Mu slammed on the brakes and turned to look at everyone, expressing his discontent. Then, lightning streaked across the sky, dyeing Su Wan’s vision white.

When Su Wan opened her eyes, she saw something dripping from her ceiling which then formed a number 5. The number suddenly enlarged and then dropped like a boulder onto her.

Su Wan was absent-minded for a moment. When she regained awareness again, she saw scattered rubble and splattered blood all over the floor. The heavy rain still continued. The black Audi car was crushed by innumerable crushed stones and the car had been severely deformed. From within the spaces between the crushed rocks, a few arms could be seen powerlessly swinging, as if they were seeking their final redemption.

She realised that they didn’t go around the car accident that they encountered that day. Instead, they were the ones who were in that car accident. She also realised that they were all stranded in the dreamworld. In here, the people who are alive have to look for those who truly died in that accident and kill them again to end the dream. And the dead people would do everything they could to kill the living people in order to seize their chances of survival.

While contemplating on the number 5, Su Wan heard knocking on her door. She didn’t dare to open the door till she heard the knocker’s voice. She recognised this voice as Yi Zi Xuan’s. So, she opened the door and let him into her home. They talked and told each other the number that they saw in their dreams. Su Wan saw 5 while Yi Zi Xuan claims that he saw 9.

The two decided to partner up and relaxed in Su Wan’s living room. Suddenly, a knock sounded from Su Wan’s door, startling the both of them. Yi Zi Xuan looked through the peephole and saw that it was Qi Mu. After a brief discussion, Yi Zi Xuan hid in Su Wan’s parent’s room while Su Wan let Qi Mu in.

Qi Mu made himself comfortable on Su Wan’s couch and asks for some medicine and a change of clothes, specifically requesting a certain black suit of her father’s. Su Wan got suspicious and demands to know how he knew. Qi Mu revealed some information on the rules of this layer of the dreamworld and shows that he was number 6 : “You are fifth, I am sixth. In this layer of the dreamworld, the rule of the game is to kill people in sequence. We learn of our serial number in advance. From 1 till 9. It may seem very simple but in fact, this is merely the sequence on the surface. Only in the eyes of every ghost, there is still another slaughter sequence. They will kill in that sequence. If they do not play by the sequence and kill in that order, those irregular existences will become nothing. And we, at this time, need to follow the surface sequence and actually deduce the killing sequence, and even look for the ghosts that hide among us. Su Wan, I can tell you that your real sequence number is 4 and mine is 5. Before you, three people will die and before the third person dies, you will be absolutely safe. It exactly at this time where we should look for those few ghosts. When they are bound by the rules and cannot touch us, kill them. I said all these. Do you understand?”

After a short conversation,Qi Mu concealed his gaze and discretely glanced at the numbers (time) on his other palm that was constantly counting down.

He used the full cost to exchange for a chance to return to this layer of the dreamworld again. Although most of the memories in this layer of the dreamworld was blocked, he is confident that he could bring Su Wan alive into the next layer of dreams within three days.

Su Wan’s mind was in turmoil with all the things that were going on tonight. Qi Mu kept being all cutesy with Su Wan. Su Wan escaped to her parents’ room to get him the suit and to discuss with Yi Zi Xuan. Instead, Yi Zi Xuan argued with her. After a lengthy argument, he leaves the room and was about to leave the apartment when Qi Mu struck a deal with him. Qi Mu made him promise to protect Su Wan once as part of the deal, and Yi Zi Xuan agreed.

At 3 am, Chen Yu Feng called Qi Mu. Qi Mu designated a meeting spot and the three of them, Qi Mu, Su Wan and Yi Zi Xuan, went to said meeting spot. Then, Qi Mu met with Chen Yu Feng while Yi Zi Xuan hid. After Chen Yu Feng asked Qi Mu to help him kill Bai Xiao Yue, who Chen Yu Feng says is a ghost, Qi Mu killed him.

At this time, Fang Tian Tian followed Qin Lu around and got into a black taxi with him, heading for Su Wan’s apartment. When they reached her place, Fang Tian Tian knocked on her door, but no one answered. As she started to panic, Qin Lu kicked down Su Wan’s door and saw the bloody suit on the living room floor and guesses it was Qi Mu who came here.

After killing Chen Yu Feng, Qi Mu and Su Wan talk a bit about human nature and got back in the car. Then, Yi Zi Xuan called Bai Xiao Yue. Meng Ting Yao answered the call and asks to meet him along without Su Wan and Qi Mu.  Meng Ting Yao had just saved Bai Xiao Yue from Fan Shu Jun. He tried to kill her but was hindered by Meng Ting Yao.

Yi Zi Xuan gets down from the car and heads off to meet up with Bai Xiao Yue and Meng Ting Yao. Qi Mu brings Su Wan to go get food. On their way, Fan Shu Jun saw them in the car together. As he watched their car pass by the bush he was hiding in, Fan Shu Jun’s shoulder was weighed down by a bloody hand. He and this mysterious person had a brief exchange.

When they reached a restaurant, Qi Mu carried Su Wan down. She woke up at this point and was going to struggle, but Qi Mu persuaded her to stay still. He then sits her on a chair in the restaurant and went into the kitchen to cook up some food. Su Wan asks him why he was so nice to her and he reveals that she had saved his life before, and that he exchanged his reward for an opportunity to return to this time in the past to save her.

As Su Wan was pulling Qi Mu up, Fan Shu Jun slammed open the door. Su Wan blocked Qi Mu’s body. Fan Shu Jun faltered for a bit and Qi Mu took this opportunity to kick away the knife in Fan Shu Jun’s hand. Qi Mu then turned and hug Su Wan in his bosom. Qi Mu froze and didn’t dare to look down at Su Wan who was in his embrace.

Su Wan says that he had no heartbeat and stabbed his heart from the back. She triumphantly declared her victory and smiled. It was revealed that Qi Mu was the Nightmare/Incubus who was making the dream and that the person who played this character was a Plane Restorer by the name of Qi Yue.

Qi Yue goes back to Plane Restorer HQ and was teased by Yun Sheng, another Plane Restorer. He was told that Su Rui was picked up by their department’s No.1 Xu Ce from a collapsed plane of existence and was going up the ranks at lightning speed.

In the dreamworld, Fan Shu Jun reveals that he killed Chen Yu Feng and obtained the ability to recover a wound in a short time. When Fan Shu Jun met him earlier, he saw through his identity as he was injured just like Bai Xiao Yue. As he disappeared, Chen Yu Feng reveals that he was killed by Qi Mu and that Qi Mu was a ghost. Fan Shu Jun recalled that he saw Su Wan and Qi Mu together, so he rushed into the direction they went to. And thus, they arrive at their present situation. Su Wan heals his wounds with a snap of her fingers and Fan Shu Jun questions her how she did that. She tells him that after she killed Qi Mu, the Nightmare, she obtained absolute control over the whole nightmare world.

When she first came into this world, she was plagued by questions on why the plot had changed, who was the person who changed it and why did they want to do it. After meeting Qi Mu, her questions started getting answered one by one. She realised that Qi Mu’s nature was completely different from the one in the original plot. After suspecting that Qi Mu was the outsider, Su Wan remembered the phone call that she received from Fan Shu Jun in the dream. Su Wan thought that that was also the manipulation of the Nightmare, but afterwards, Su Wan had a new idea. She guessed that it was her future self that asked Fan Shu Jun to call her. The information that he wanted her to know was : The ninth person and dream.

Piecing the clues together, this meant that the ninth person was the Nightmare. This was why this world was known as the Ninth Nightmare.

At this point in the story, Qin Lu and Fang Tian Tian met up with Yi Zi Xuan, Bai Xiao Yue and Meng Ting Yao.

Fan Shu Jun wakes up from his brief coma and was presented two choices by Su Wan, who now controls the dreamworld: “Leave this world or dominate this world?”

Fan Shu Jun picks to leave this world. Su Wan said that she will let him leave this world, but only after he completes two tasks for her.

……………

Yi Zi Xuan wakes up in his bed in the dorms on the day before he bought the jade pendant as Su Wan’s birthday present.He thought that he was reincarnated after being betrayed by his comrades back in Hell. Fan Shu Jun comes into his room and reminds him that he was going to be late. Yi Zi Xuan rushes out of the room and races to the shop where he bought the jade pendant. There, he saw Meng Ting Yao. While he was thinking of the past, Meng Ting Yao had already bought and wore the jade. He stops her and hopes to buy the jade containing the ability to turn back time from her. Meng Ting Yao refuses and left. He tried to approach her many times on campus, but no luck.

When Chen Yu Feng proposes the spring outing half a year later, Yi Zi Xuan plans to use his memory of the dreamworld and hopes to obtain Meng Ting Yao’s trust, and then have the jade pendant in his possession, activate his abilities, and defeat the Nightmare again. This way, it would just be like in his previous life where he brought Meng Ting Yao into Hell and battled through difficulties and dangers. He also plans to get revenge on the people that betrayed him in his previous life.

Unfortunately, this plan went wrong from the beginning. Meng Ting Yao changed the location of the outing and the car accident didn’t happen. There was no Nightmare and he still didn’t have his ability. He finally went a little bit insane over his obsession with the jade. He stopped Meng Ting Yao at her villa door and demanded for the jade. Meng Ting Yao asked him to choose between her and the jade. Yi Zi Xuan hesitated for a bit and still chose the jade pendant. She turned and left in disappointment. It turned out that Meng Ting Yao remembered what happened in her past life as well.

Su Wan watched as all this happened and converses with Fan Shu Jun. She reveals that she was going to let Yi Zi Xuan continue being betrayed in the next layer of dreams and continue being reborn until the day that he has nothing.

…………………….

Su Wan opened her eyes and she was at the Realm Destroyer HQ again. To get rid of her bad mood, she takes up a lower level task to calm herself down.
