To my dear readers,
I’m so sorry. I’ve been so demotivated lately. I don’t even have motivation to blog my own regular blog posts..:( Nonetheless, I hope you like this chapter. It sounds much better in Chinese though. *sigh*
By the way, my numbers came in for February and I only made $13.70 from ads (I had over 40000 views in Feb). WordPress doesn’t pay me until I hit $100. At this rate, I don’t even know if I will get anything until winter…*cries*. Technically, if none of my readers use adblock, I should get around $10 for every 10000 views…please help me by clicking an ad or something. I would appreciate that very much. Please help me because:
1. Although I’m a slow translator, I still try to put a lot of effort in every chapter.
2. This is free for all of you to read. I have already read it in Chinese. But I still chose to spend hundreds of hours translating for you. Donations would be much appreciated!!!
3. Just help me, because we should help each other 😉 Thanks everyone. ❤

Here is this chapter in Chinese
Chapter 40 Shen Tui Men’s Greed
Because Xuan Luo stepped in, the disciples from Shen Tui Men had no choice but to leave. The second dang jia had lost his life. Who would have thought?
But Shen Tui Men have always been arrogant; they often targetted the weak and young -death cannot wipe out the crimes they have committed.
The skin on Xuan Luo’s wrist had totally been flipped open. The villagers were very grateful towards Xuan Luo for stepping out to help them. They didn’t say it verbally though; it was something they kept within their hearts.
“Ah! So painful!” Xuan Luo didn’t feel the pain on his hand during the fight. However, now, the pain was abnormally intense.
At least, the incident at the village had been dealt with. Sadly, Hu Zi’s left arm was totally gone. He was now a person of disability. Once Shen Tui Men left, the villagers quickly carried Hu Zi to the old man’s straw room. Xuan Luo’s condition looked much more optimistic. He did lose some blood, but it was torn skin only.
However, the old man’s stitching skills were indeed quite poor. It took him nearly half an hour to stitch Xuan Luo’s wound, which caused Xuan Luo extreme pain. However, it still wasn’t nearly as intense as the pain he had endured when he first started nei gong xin fa from the ragged book. But the needle and the string would go through his flesh, and the old man would tug it, so you can imagine how painful it must have been.
“You’re finally done…” Xuan Luo looked at his stitched wrist, and breathe out a sign of relief.
“I’m old and my sight is not so good…” The old man explained. This caused Xuan Luo to be speechless. He would rather the old man not explain. Once he started explaining, Xuan Luo felt like the old man purposely wanted to give him a hard time.
“Duan ye ye, how’s Hu Zi?” Xuan Luo decided to ignore the other stuff and focused on Hu Zi’s condition instead. Honestly, Hu Zi’s condition was depressing.
Hu Zi’s mother’s death was a devastating blow to him. Hu Zi had already lost his father during his early years. Now, he had no living parent.
The old man shook his head, and he crinkled his brows. He sadly sighed, “He is still unconscious. His mother’s death and everything that has happened is very traumatic for him. Not to mention, he lost his left arm. That’s going to tremendously affect his daily life from now on…”
The old man couldn’t help but sigh. He looked at the Hu Zi laying on the sick bed, and lightly whispered, “Chopped arms can be fixable. But my current abilities are not there yet…”
Hearing this, Xuan Luo was in shock. It was possible to connect a chopped arm back together? How high of medical expertise would that require? A human has many jing mai that are connected very closely together. On the arm alone, are a couple of important ones. If a chopped arm was to be connected, wouldn’t the jing mai have to be connected as well? How amazing and skillful must one be in order to complete such a task?
However, it was too late for Hu Zi. After a certain amount of time had passed, even if one had amazing skills, it would be too late to connect the arm back together.
Xuan Luo sadly looked at Hu Zi. Then, he turned to the old man and asked, “Duan ye ye, what were those people doing here?”
Although Xuan Luo had an impression of Shen Tui Men, they didn’t seem that overboard at the time. It was a coincidence that he encountered them. At the time, his martial arts skills were low, and he couldn’t do much.
Hearing Xuan Luo’s question, the old man’s eyes revealed a stream of hatred. He bitterly shrilled, “They’re a bunch of robbers!”
“When they arrived, they went to take a rest at Hu Zi’s house. Hu Zi’s mother is very kind hearted…who knew…” The old man didn’t continue his sentence, but Xuan Luo knew what he wanted to say.
“So Hu Zi went after those men. Hu Zi is a strong man. He has the strength to fight and most of those men were no opponents to him. However, their big boss was very strong. Within a few moves, he had taken Hu Zi down…afterwards, you know what happened!”
It turned out that Shen Tui Men were very greedy. They wanted to expand their influential powers and they had started attacking whatever that was around them. The old man didn’t know too much, but he had heard a lot. When Shen Tui Men gathered the villagers altogether, they said, “If you will do as we say, we will spare your lives.”
In order for an influential power to form, they have to constantly massacre. That was the only way to control the people. Influential power meant no one dared to challenge your authority. Obviously, within every influential power, there were also those who fight for the position. That was jiang hu for you!
Two years ago, Shen Tui Men was a new influential power that appeared in Qian Deng Zhen. Who would have thought that within two years they would already spread so far? Although Xia Luo village and Qian Deng Zhen were both small villages, Xia Luo village was located a lot deeper within the mountain; it wasn’t as obvious as Qian Deng Zhen. Who knew why Shen Tui Men wanted this territory?
“Duan ye ye, does that mean Shen Tui Men wants to take over this region?” Xuan Luo instantaneously asked.
“I’m not sure. But I heard them say, ‘We’re responsible for this location. Qian Deng Zhen is da ge’s…. I assume he would have taken over it by now.’ What that means…I don’t know*” The old man reflected.
Hearing this, Xuan Luo felt a sense of disgust. Shen Tui Men dared to reach so far.. from Xia Luo village to Qian Deng Zhen. Were they seriously planning to take over everything?
Suddenly, Xuan Luo got up and yelled, “Duan ye ye, I have to return to Qian Deng Zhen. I’ll be back in a couple of days.”
The old man was surprised by Xuan Luo’s anxiety. He didn’t know what was going on, but he didn’t stop him. From Xuan Luo’s expression, he could tell Xuan Luo was very anxious.
“Okay!” The old man replied.
Xuan Luo quickly left and ran towards Qian Deng Zhen.
Clearly, that man had came prepared to take over Xia Luo village. Based on what the old man had told him, Shang Hua should be the one dealing with Qian Deng Zhen. They have already planned it ahead of time. This meant Shen Tui Men were already making moves all over the region.
Xuan Luo rushed towards Qian Deng Zhen, and within his heart, he kept repeating, “Please be alright, Stepfather!”
However, Xuan Luo had totally forgotten that in Qian Deng Zhen, there was still a Dong Fang Yu….
* How could you not understand? OMG. HE CLEARLY SAID HE IS TAKING OVER YOUR VILLAGE AND HIS BROTHER IS TAKING OVER QIAN DENG ZHEN. -__-“
