Everyone looked at the magpie that flew out of the hole that had just been dug.
They were all surprised, especially the Village Chief.
He even forgot to shut his mouth.

He looked at Su Meng and said in surprise, “Master, it’s a magpie.
That hole was just dug.
Where did the magpie come from? It’s really amazing!”

Shen Jian held back his laughter and did not say anything.

Su Meng smiled.
“Alright, I’ve done what I promised you.
From now on, you will use your own luck to exchange for the luck of your descendants.
In the future, future generations will be able to become high officials and make a fortune.”

“Thank you, Master.
Then, how should I thank you?”The Village Chief repeatedly thanked her.

He felt that he was already rich enough.
Even if his luck became worse, he would at most be unable to continue earning big money.
It was worth it to be able to exchange such a small amount of money for the luck of his descendants.

“No need to thank me.
I’m only here to look for Hong Si.
Since there’s nothing else for him, I’ll take him away.” After Su Meng said that, she turned around and walked back.

“Village Chief, you don’t have to send us off.
You should first find someone here to help and do as I say.
Then, you should do it as soon as possible.
The sooner, the better.” Su Meng hurriedly stopped the Village Chief from sending her off.

“Okay, then I won’t send you off.” The Village Chief had only wanted to be polite, but when he heard Su Meng say that there was no need to send them off, he immediately stopped and turned around to do something else.

Su Meng looked at his back view and then left.

The environment in the mountains was good.
Green mountains and clear waters, birds and insects chirping, and fresh air.
It was definitely a good place to recuperate.

Of course, only with money could it be called recuperating, and not having money could be called making a living.

When she was about to reach the car, Su Meng saw the old man she had saved again.

The old man stood by the roadside as if he was waiting for someone.
When he saw Su Meng and the others, he immediately came over to welcome them.
However, he looked serious, as if he was afraid of something.

“Girl, are you going out of the village?” The old man called out to Su Meng.

Su Meng stopped and walked to the old man’s side.
“Sir, we are going out.
Why are you looking for us?”

“Girl, didn’t I tell you yesterday? As long as you stay here for the night, you can’t leave again.
Otherwise, you’ll be in big trouble.”

“I warned you yesterday, but why didn’t you listen? Sigh, young people nowadays just don’t listen to an old man.
In the end, they only find out when they’re at a disadvantage.
When you saved me today, I wanted to tell you.
But at that time, the Village Chief was there, so I couldn’t say anything, so I could only leave first.
Now that the Village Chief isn’t around, I can come over and tell you.”

Seeing that the old man didn’t seem to be joking, Su Meng asked doubtfully, “Sir, what exactly do you mean? Why can’t we leave after the night is over?”

The old man looked around and saw that there was no one around.
He tugged at Su Meng’s sleeve and pulled her to the side of the car.
“Girl, let’s talk in the car?”

Seeing that the old man was so vigilant, Su Meng nodded and opened the car door for him.
Shen Jian and Lin Ai also went in.

As soon as they entered the car, the old man heaved a sigh of relief and began to tell her everything he knew.

“Our village is evil.
I don’t know which god we have offended.
It’s fine if the villagers stay in the village obediently, but if they leave the village, they will be plagued by disease or bad luck.”

“Because it’s too weird, the people in the village basically won’t go out, because those who go out have accidents.
If it’s outsiders who come to our village, it’s fine if they don’t stay overnight, but if they stay overnight, they will also be tainted with bad luck.
If they forcefully go out, all sorts of bad things will happen.”

“I shouldn’t have said this to you, but you saved my life, and in return, I told you this.
Little girl, look at how young you are.
Why didn’t you listen to an old man like me at that time?”

Su Meng listened carefully.
Although she knew half of what the old man said, she was curious about the specifics, so she asked, “Sir, do you know what the so-called bad luck is?”

The old man thought for a moment.
“There are very few outsiders in our village, and very few people go out.
I remember that the people who went out of the village either had a car accident or died of illness.
The most typical one was Hong Si.
He went out for a few years, but when he came back, he was blind.
When he left the village, he was still healthy and vigorous.”

“Even if we get married, we hardly look for outsiders.
We always stay with the neighboring village.
Our village is considered outside the mountains.
If you walk a little further in, you can still see a few villages.”

Su Meng did not pay attention to other words.
Instead, she noticed that Hong Si was blind.
