“Despicable, shameless!” Lacey woke up from a nightmare, his face already ashen before his eyes could focus. He cursed angrily and spat out a mouthful of bloodied spittle at Lilith, who was standing not far away and looking at him with a smirk.

Only God knew what he had seen when he was possessing another consciousness. If the connection wasn’t cut off in time, it could have left a lasting trauma on him—one that weighed at least three hundred pounds!

Her size, her face and that dazzling gold chain she wore around her neck! He nearly blacked out from fear!

“To think a dragon princess would parade around with a fake name! Have you no shame?!” Lacey’s angry outburst ended in a whimper.

Lilith easily dodged his spit. Instead of getting angry, she flashed him a big smile. “Who told you I used a fake name? The guy who left his name at your reception was Leonith. The lovely and adorable lady standing before you now is Lilith. What does Leonith’s action have anything to do with me?”

Lacey clenched his teeth in remorse and hissed, “I dare you to give me another chance to write the name. We’ll do this fair and square, without resorting to these petty little tricks!”

Lilith gently patted Lacey’s cheek a few times, as if to wake him up, then smiled and said, “I wouldn’t dare to. What if you really managed to take control of me? Although I enjoy stirring up troubles, I never like getting into one. It’s best if you stop fantasizing about this.”

“Despicable scumbag!” Lacey cursed angrily once again.

“Hoho.” Lilith’s eyes sparkled with a sadistic glint as she spoke slowly, “According to what you said earlier, you see yourself as the villain, which automatically places me on the side of justice and righteousness. Is despicable the right word to describe the action of a good person? Anything done in the name of justice should be described with positive words. Ganging up on somebody is acting cautiously to ensure that a plan is foolproof. Scheming is being resourceful with the wisdom of Confucious. Kicking someone in the balls is advocating feminism and fighting for true equality.”

Lilith’s excitement grew as she patted Lacey’s face harder and harder until it turned into a powerful slap that spun Lacey and disoriented him. “So, instead of crying and running your mouth inappropriately here, you should ask your boss for a clear written instruction when you’re given a task. After all, misunderstandings can easily occur with the verbal instructions.”

“Anyway, your ability is quite intriguing. Initially, I only wanted to see you fail at casting it so I can mock you. However, you surprised me by succeeding. Come, tell me who did you end up possessing just now? Judging from your reaction, he must have been a very attractive, promiscuous man right?”

Lacey gritted his teeth and seethed. “I’m not sure about the attractive part, but he’s definitely promiscuous.”

Lilith’s eyes immediately lit up with great interest. “Oh? Tell me more in details! I might spare your life if you manage to entertain me.”

“Dream on! I pretty much took a trip to hell just now! I’ll never tell anyone about it!”
“Of course!”

Lilith sneered. “It appears that you’re still struggling to grasp your current situation. But forget it, I’m not interested in wasting my time talking to you. Sometimes the most effective way to make an animal obedient is to inflict intense pain upon them.”

Lacey’s face, already ghastly white from excessive blood loss, grew even paler. “Y-You… What are you trying to do?”

“What do you think?”

“Ahh, how nostalgic.” Lilith rubbed her hands together eagerly, as she took small, calculated steps toward Lacey. He could feel the weight of each step directly on his heart.

“I’m going to borrow your words again—you’re about to experience a living hell. I hope you’ll still be able to keep your lips sealed like you did by the time we’re done.”

Lilith reached for the hideous doll floating in front of Lacey, determined to destroy it first and prevent any further trouble. Lacey’s eyes immediately turned red and his face contorted with rage, almost as if Lilith’s action was no different than killing his mother.

“You little b̲a̲s̲t̲a̲r̲d̲, you better don’t go overboard!”

“Huh?” Lilith raised her eyebrows in surprise. “What are you going to do if I insist on going overboard?”

“I’ll make sure I take you down with me!” Lacey said angrily. His body temperature suddenly skyrocketed, causing his cheeks to turn as red as a boiled prawn.

This guy actually has the courage to self-destruct?

The expression on Lilith’s face changed drastically. She did not have time to process this as she quickly punched Lacey in the stomach, hoping to disperse the magic in his dantian before it caused a catastrophic explosion. Unfortunately, Lilith’s efforts were in vain as Lacey’s determination to self-destruct was stronger than she expected, resulting in a sudden and loud explosion.

Lilith quickly pulled back to avoid the explosion, dodging the splattering flesh and blood. Lacey, who had self-destructed, was now a pile of mosaic blur. Lilith stood at a safe distance, calmly taking in the scent of blood in the air. Despite the gruesome scene, Lilith remained composed, possibly due to her being a dragon, a race that was accustomed to such sights. Even when faced with the revulsion of ordinary people, she could maintain her composure.

She was quite puzzled by Lacey’s action though. What did he mean by taking her down too? He barely even dirtied the hem of her dress. What was the point of self-destructing? Did Lacey really believe that he was a peak saint-level expert who had condensed all the magic power in his body into crystals and was capable of causing an explosion comparable to a nuclear bomb?

What an idiot. What a waste of such good skin.
Hmm… Wait a minute… Skin?

As the thought flashed across her, Lilith’s eyes shot wide open. Without hesitation, she was going to quickly charge toward the pile of mosaic blur at top speed. Before she could take a step, a pitch-black speck of light came out of the pile and flew away into the distance.

“Stay right there!” Lilith wanted to give chase, but soon realized that the area was engulfed in thick white smoke once again.

“Damn it!” Lilith slammed her fist against the wall next to her, causing it to splinter and break open a large hole. She immediately regretted her overconfidence. She had assumed that Lacey was trapped like an ant in her own bottle and unable to escape her grasp, but she realized that she had gotten the wrong target from the start!

Who ever said that Lacey Guinevere was a human being?

Who ever said that his current body was the original body, and not one obtained through that sort of way?

A sneaky guy like Lacey would never have the courage to self-destruct, because the real Lacey Guinevere was not this perverted guy with a gorgeous face, but that ugly doll itself!


Amidst the thick white smoke, there was an unsightly rag doll floating with a dull glow. The doll appeared out of place in the pure white surroundings, and it was burning with intense anger.

Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! Because of that damned little b̲a̲s̲t̲a̲r̲d̲, I lost that beauty and even had to part with my favorite skin! I never had the intention to fight her for the time being, so why did she keep meddling in my affairs?!

The eyes of the ugly doll, which were sewn with buttons, glimmered with a wicked gleam.

I can’t call myself a man unless I get my revenge! If I can’t have my revenge against her, then surely I can against her friends! They are still on this boat! Hehe, I wonder what expression she will show when I meet her again and have control over the most important people in her life!

Dragon Princess Lilith, I’m really looking forward to it.
