Divine maiden… Divine maiden, I have long awaited for your arrival.
Divine maiden… Divine maiden… Divine maiden!
The divine maiden has come. Commence the ceremony!
Imperial Princess Duanyang
Ah! Mother, I had the dream again! I-I…!
Imperial Concubine Zhao
Call upon the noble Mu Clan of Yao hunters for their assistance!
Imperial Concubine Zhao has employed the Mu Clan’s jade tablet.
Ever since Princess Duanyang visited Xingshan Temple on her eighteenth birthday, her sleep seem to have been plagued with nightmares.
Doesn’t the palace have their own imperial astronomer? Why would they need to ask for us Yao hunters?
Sister Mu, Brother Liu, Mu Sheng! I want to go to Chang’an with you!
Five baked flatbreads please.
Miss Ling, didn’t you just finish off half a chicken?
We had you go out to collect information and all you bring back this rubbish gossip. I really wonder what you’re even here for.
Don’t you think that Xingshan Temple is really weird? What monastery would choose to build one in a place like that!
You want me to go with you. Oh? Are you afraid of getting lost, Miss Ling?
Mu Sheng… Mu Sheng? Where did you go?! Huh?
Divine maiden… Divine maiden… Divine maiden! Divine maideeeen!
Divine maiden, come with me now!
The sandstorm is so strong… Where are we?!
This…is the true Xingshan Temple.
Mu Sheng! You’re…not going to abandon me are you?
Another peep out of you and I’ll do just that.
They said when Xingshan Temple was completed ten years ago, all the monks inside died in one night and dyed the skies red…for three days and three nights.
I can’t detect any yao energy, so perhaps we really aren’t up against yao. Yet they also have the same mystifying abilities.
Bai Jing & Mu Huaijiang:
Overturn the Heavens, hurl into the Earth. Extinguish all wisps, erase all traces…
Overturn the Heavens, hurl into the Earth. Extinguish all wisps, erase all traces… This is our Mu Clan’s sealing talisman!
Mu Sheng! You must protect your sister with your life. Don’t let even a scratch touch her, do you understand?!
The Mu Clan didn’t keep you alive for nothing!
Perhaps bringing you back was a mistake in the first place…
Are they definitely righteous just because they’re a noble clan of Yao hunters? The Mu Clan has always given you hope and an illusion, just like the mirage a person on the verge of death sees. The Bodhisattva in remotest place may seem benevolent, but even they will never be able to enlighten you!
Wait… Stop! Mu Sheng, help! Wait, let me go. Let me go! Mu Sheng!!
Diving maiden! Divine maiden! Divine maiden!
Rid us of the evil and vicious, extinguish all traces of the supernatural!
Based on the novel by Baiyu Zhai Diaogong on JJWXC, and co-produced by MissEvan and Sancao Culture.
