Translated by Nathaniel Hu
During the reign of emperor Taizong from Song Dynasty, there were a silk mechant
named Bai Sheng. Every year he traveled from his hometown to sell his goods. Bai
Sheng only had a daughter named Bai Mudan, since her birth she was so special because
all part of her body spreading fragrance like flower. As her age 18 years old, Bai
Mudan's beauty become more and more distinguished from others girls. The loveliness
of her face made Chang E1 look inferior and hide behind the moon, her body tall and slim
but plump in certain parts. If only she became emperor's concubine, maybe she would
bring the downfall of the country like Yang Yuhuan2 or Bao Si3.
Since the death of her beloved wife, Bai Sheng always bring his daughter in his
journey. But alas in his last journey Bai Sheng serriously ill and died many months later.
Because she had no moeny to burry her father and since she didn't have anyone else to
lean on, then Bai Mudan decided to sell herself to Yellow Flower brothel, the biggest
prostitution house in that city.
Half year later Bai Mudan had became the most popular singsong girl in Luo Yang.
However she just sing and dance in front of customers but refuse to had sex with them.
In Luo Yang, there was a playboy named Li Ru, the son of millionaire Li. Spoiled
from his childhood, this young master Li grew as a loafer who wasted his father money in
gambling house and brothel. One day Li Ru was visiting Yellow Flower brothel with his
friend. Suddenly his eyes starred and his saliva drooled as he saw Mudan singing and
dancing in front of him.
"Is she a fairy descending to earth?" Praised him "I've meet a lot of pretty girl in
my live, from Wang Zaojun's4 counterpart to Xi Shi's5 twins, but honestly I never meet
the girl as lovely as this"
"But never think to sleep her, since she always reject that" warned one of his friend.
"That's because you don't understand how to handle a beautiful girl!" Laughed Li
Ru "now I will book her to sing for me and wait for my good news tomorrow!". After
finished his word, Li Ru met the pimp and booked Mudan to sing for him.
As Mudan started entertain him, Li Ru can't stop praising her loveliness in his
heart, especially looking at her big breast which emerged from her dress made his passion
become more and more aroused.
"Miss Mudan, how come your body has scent of flower? What kind of perfume you
used?" asked him
Mudan smiled and answer "This is not perfume sir, but indeed all part of my body
has natural fragrance like flower"
"Really? But honestly I hardly believe it. Actually I've meet many girls with
fragrant body like you, but at least they still have an unpleasant smell in certain part of
their body! At least let me prove it that you're not lying" tease him
Mudan giggled and said "But how can I prove it"
"Then please let me sniffing your armpit!"
Mudan can't hold her laugh and let him to do that. But instead of sniffing it, this
naughty mister Li kissed her breast. She startled at first. But as Mudan herself was
attracted with this handsome and rich young master Li, then she didn't complain .Even
she opened her dress and show her nipple which made him more aroused and sucked it
passionately like a child milking in his mother breast. Finally they play the game of
cloud and rain6 in one night full.
Since her first experience of cloud and rain, Mudan never regret in losing of her
virginity. Instead now she aware how easy to make money by this way. From that day on,
playboy from various places will made line in front of Yellow Flower every night and
only the luckiest one with highest bid will had opportunity to make love with her.
Because most men worship her like goddess, Mudan became arrogant. She thought
"in the past, Empress Wu Zetian7 often asked her subordinates to kiss her genital. But
since I am prettier than her, then all of my guest should entertain my more than that."
One day a prosperous merchant named Chen Hua came to feast in Yellow Flower
and picked Mudan as his partner. Actually this Chen Hua was known as "the stinky
mouth Chen", because he like to flatter his wealthy customer like a dog licking his
master, but always cursed his servants fiercely as if they're not human. .
As they arrived in bedroom, Chen Hua can't wait to kiss her. But instead of giving
her cheek, Mudan turn her back and tease him "since you are my special guest mister,
then how about kissing the most precious part in my body"
To see a sexy round ass bent in front of his face, Chen Hua completely forget about
his pride and kissed that plumped soft ass passionately, even he licked her clean anus like
the sweetest thing in world. Suddenly she farts right in his mouth, but instead of angry he
suck it deeply as if it's smell like flower spring. Mudan really enjoyed this kinky stuff as
she laughed uncontrollably. Actually the stinky mouth Chen was very appropriate
nickname for him
In other occasion, a corrupt magistrate named Cao Mao paid a lot of money to sleep
with her. This magistrate was often dubbed as "yao guai"8 because he like to exploit his
peoples, like a yao guai sucking vital energy or blood from men.
As they were drinking and chatting, he said "I heard Song Jing, the owner of wine
shop once lick your sweat and praise it as more delicious than the best wine in his shop.
So please let me lick your sweat too."
Mudan laughed and answered with a coquettish tone "Too bad that I'm not sweaty
now, but I just wash my feet in that basin there.".
Suddenly Cao Mao dip a water from that basin into his cup and drink it, then he
praise it as delicious as maotai9 . From now on people known him as "a you gui who
sucked a dirty water"
In fifth day of fourth month, a Taoist priest comes to Yellow Flower. Actually a
Taoist priest was forbidden to visit this kind of place, unfortunately there always be an
indecent one among the holiest one. How was his appearance? This priest face was
excellent, as if Pan An10 was reborn to earth. His body was well build. And his charisma
was no less than the heavenly teacher Zhang Daoling11.
In contrary with her courtesans who was amazed by his outstanding appearance, the
pimp of Yellow Flower was despised the priest because of his plain and rumpled cloth.
Moreover when he stated he want to pick Mudan, the pimp was blatantly humiliating
him. However suddenly he pick a lot of gold from his pocket which made the pimp
changed her attitude and called her favorite courtesan immediately. In her heart Mudan
was so happy to get a good looking client like this, quietly she praise his handsomeness
as match to her beauty.
After drinking a few cup of wine and chatting for a while, Mudan can't resist her
passion any longer so she began seducing him with her erotic dance. But after 20 minutes
of dancing and singing, The priest still look indifferent and sipped his wine calmly. The
haughty courtesan wondered since she never had a customer like this before, then she
tried to tease him "Holy teacher, I heard you Taoist priest is adept in magical art. But do
you know that I also mastered some trick too?"
"What kinds of magic do you mastered miss? Asked the priest wonder
Suddenly Mudan open her dress and bring his hand caressing her naked breast.
Then she whispered on his ear with a sensual voice "You know? I always make certain
part of male body erected when they touch this, isn't it magic?" Before he can answer,
Mudan touched his genital and laughed.
The priest was very displeased with her indecent behavior and reprimand her
"Please be polite miss, since I come here not to do that disgusted thing"
"So what do you want? Don't tell me you want teach me that hocus pocus thing of
"Actually you were flower fairy in your previous existence and that's why your
body was fragrant. But because you violated heavenly mandate, then you were
reincarnated as prostitute. If you agree to leave this sinful live, then i will teach you how
to go back to heaven" said the priest seriously
Mudan giggle hearing his advice "Go back to heaven? Don't you see that I've been
in heaven now? Am I not like a goddess who is worshiped by all men on this city? So
what's the point to live in your boring heaven when I can eat the most delicious food and
drink the best wine here. Oh and see how dirty your cheap robe is, off course it can't be
compared with my lovely expensive dress!"
"Don't you know that all happiness in this world was just illusion, one day you
happy, but most other days you will cry" advise the priest
"Ha ha ha, oh what a handsome but stupid priest, do you think that I don't know
your out of date trick? Listen, I've heard this trick since my childhood. First you will
manipulate naive person to follow your teaching, then you will rob their money. Oh or
probably you want to kidnap me as your concubine?" said her with an insulting tone
The priest faces redden on hearing her insult. Then he got up from his seat and
slapped her face.two times. Before leaved, he said "We will meet 10 years later in place
where you share your food with dog"
As the priest gone, Mudan face feel burnt. She went to mirror to check what
happen. But how terrified she was seeing that part of her face where the priest slap, had
become darker and full with disgusting abscess. Mudan cried and cursed the priest, but
her condition became worsen every day. Because of Mudan's face was as scary as ghost
now, then the pimp thrown her away from Yellow Flower. This time all men who once
worship her despise her like rubbish.
Ten years later Mudan had lost all of her fortune, so once a famous courtesan now
must live as beggar to feed herself. One day Mudan feel so hungry because she hadn't eat
for 2 days. When she saw a dog eat remaining food from wealthy man house, she
snatched it away and without mind about the taste, she ate it like a luxurious meal.
Suddenly a familiar voice addressed her "How do you do miss Mudan? long time
no see. Is that most delicious food on earth? Where are all people who worship you like
Mudan surprised recognizing that man as the priest who slapped her face. But she
anxious how can his face didn't change over this years. Then she cried. "Please don't
mock me holy teacher, I've know my mistake back then. Now understand that all
happiness in this world was just a dream and as i wake up everything disappeared like a
dust. Now I can only cry until my demise"
The priest smile and touched her face softly. Suddenly Mudan feel weird but
relaxing sensation in her face Then she looked her face in pool and realized that her
abscess had disappeared, in addition her face also pretty and young again like ten years
Mudan's heart filled with joy, spontaneously she kowtowed in front of him and said
"Thank you for curing my face o holy teacher, but who are you actually? I believe you're
not just common priest"
The priest laughed and answered "Actually i'm immortal Lu Dongbin, and you can
found my statue in most temples in this city, however since you never pray in the temple
then you don't recognize me earlier. Eventually in your previous existence as flower
fairy, we were a good friend, so I want to help you return to the heaven." Suddenly Lu
Dongbin sighed "But of course I can't force you. Now since your face has been cured, i
will give you two choices. First you can go back to your former heaven which full of
debauchery in Yellow Flower, Otherwise you can follow me to real heaven. If you want
to follow me, then meet me here tomorrow."
The next day Mudan went to previous place to meet Lu Dongbin. However the
immortal wasn't there, instead a man address her "Miss Mudan, long time no see, I heard
you got a disaster, but how come your face is as pretty as ten years ago" Actually that
voice come from young master Li Ru, the first man who took her virginity. "I had go to
Lin An for business trip for many years, but do you know how much I miss you o my
Suddenly Li Ru tried to touch her breast, but she quickly avoid him and shout
"Leave me alone, I've spent ten years to repent and I swear never did that god forsaken
But her curse only succeeded in making him laughed loudly "Ha ha ha, o my
beautiful goddess is that what you learn in this ten years? To pretends like a shy and
innocent girl? Not bad! Not bad actually, as you know that we men are more aroused by
that innocent manner!"
Once again young master Li tried to kiss her. But as he approached, she tried to
suicide using her hairpin. Suddenly the lewd man disappeared and Lu Dongbin appeared
before him "Good! Good! Initially I just want to test you and now I know how serious
you are!" praised the immortal. After that Mudan follow him as her apprentice.
