Your Highness, I know my wrongs. -Chapter 48.

To my dear readers,

Lian Feng will be back in the next chapter!! And sorry for the wait (again). Today, I had a very emotional day because I went for an acupuncture treatment and I cried a lot. 😥  . My friend came with me and she cried because she saw my condition. I have been very emotionally weak lately so I would appreciate any support you guys can give me. Comments, donations, turning off your ad block…I only made $15 for July (from ads).

The word I would like to teach today is: 在. 在 indicates where something is or the location of something or what you’re currently doing.  在 school means at school. 在 sleeping means currently sleeping. 在 table means on the table. You can type 在 by typing “zai”. We do not have prepositions in Chinese: on, at, in, etc.

Chapter 48

Since Lin Shan didn’t really have any other choice, she could only follow the old servant. They walked straight up to the third floor. The old servant pushed open the door and gestured her to go inside.

Lin Shan was cautious with every step she took. When she turned around, the door had already been shut behind her. She felt like she was being separated from the real world. It was extremely quiet, and there was a faint scent of orchid in the room.

Huh? How come there’s nobody here?

Lin Shan was confused. She took a couple of steps around the area but soon ended back at the entrance once more. She scattered her eyes around the room and noticed there was a circular table filled with goodies.

Eight treasure rice, osmanthus flower cake, sweet fermented sticky rice ball, angelica sinensis stew chicken….there were desserts and meat dishes!! Lin Shan’s eyes gleamed. She was drooling.

Seeing the food, Lin Shan instantly recalled how she hadn’t eaten lunch yet. Her stomach started to growl. Continue reading “Your Highness, I know my wrongs. -Chapter 48.”

Zui Wu Dao. Finale?

To my dear readers,

I’m contemplating whether I should translate Vol 2. Chapter 51-60. The reason why I’m debating whether to translate 51-60 is because I am going to be introducing another 10 characters, but then I will be forced to stop because Part 3 doesn’t connect to Part 2, and there will be even more unanswered questions. Hence, I think it will be even more frustrating because as of right now, we already have so many questions that have yet to be answered.

At the beginning, my friend Kyle recommended me to translate this novel because he thought it was related to the manga version. At the time, I decided, sure why not? (It turns out the novel isn’t related to the manga at all. I know most of you were disappointed)

Anyhow, it wasn’t until after I translated a couple chapters did I realize that the author actually had written all 156 chapters, and then went back to edit her/his work. HOWEVER, she/he changed A LOT of the story because part three is totally different from part two. In part 3, Bai Tian was with Xuan Luo all along, and he was one of Wu Ya Zi’s disciples. Not only that, Dong Fang Yu got raped by a character that wasn’t even mentioned in part two. It is so different that I think the author gave up and stopped editing.

After I realized my mistake for translating a dropped novel, I still continued on because I didn’t want to quit after a few chapters. In addition, I felt like some part of the story is actually quite good…so it was worth it. Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Finale?”

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 50.

To my dear readers,

This chapter was very difficult to translate because the sentence structure was so backwards (Sometimes, it’s less backwards). I tried my best.

biao
This is what delivering the “biao” looked like in the past. “Biao” are the items that the biao ju is ordered to deliver/keep safe for a price. Basically, it’s like sending express mail with bodyguards.

Chapter 50     Analyzing

By the time Xuan Yuan Duan Ai and Tang Chen were finished telling Xuan Luo the whole story, a couple of hours had already gone by. Xuan Yuan Duan Ai was very detailed; he didn’t leave out a single detail. Xuan Luo vaguely sensed a conspiracy was going on.

“There is something fishy about this.” Honestly, Xuan Luo didn’t have to meddle in this muddy water. However, since he had arrived in Du Cheng, his heart felt very troubled. Yet, he couldn’t really explain why. Perhaps the incident with Shen Tui Men had caused him to over think.

“I think so too! That day, I was told to protect the items on the carts and to bring it to the Nan gong family’s residence. The client had already put down a deposit, and the deposit was no less than twenty thousand silver tael (currency from the Qing Dynasty). I didn’t think anyone would be so generous!” Xuan Yuan Duan Ai exclaimed.

“We truly need to deeply analyze this situation.” Xuan Luo repeated again. He had no idea what he was getting into.

“Let’s analyze.” Tang Chen said calmly. He also had strong feelings about this; because why on earth would the client asked the biao ju to deliver* a bunch of gunpowder? Not to mention, the Nan gong family definitely had enough potential without the help of the biao ju.

Chapter 49     Hu Wei Biao Ju

Note: Biao ju is a store that helps deliver people’s valuables safe for a price. People will come redeem their items after.

After dealing with everything, Xuan Luo didn’t return to Qian Deng Zhen. One of the things he despised most was saying goodbye. Most of all, he didn’t want Guan Shan Jue to witness his tearful face.

As one gets older, he/she will feel more lonely. During these past two years, Xuan Luo knew how painful it was to miss someone. Although he really wanted to be by his stepfather’s side, currently, that wasn’t an option.

When he left home with Bai Tian, he could only imagine Guan Shan Jue’s emotions. His stepfather took care of him for five years, and definitely invested a lot in him. Likewise, he also loved Guan Shan Jue very much.

Nowadays, his nightmares were happening less and less. However, they were getting clearer and clearer. Xuan Luo knew that his dream had something to do with his past. Each time he had that dream, he would feel very frightened and he would be drenched in cold sweats. From time to time, he would wake up scared.

To my dear readers,

This chapter was easy to translate but there were a lot of meaningful phrases that sounds extremely odd in English. I tried to be as accurate as possible, so I’m sorry if you’re confused? I hope not.

Anyhow, I’ve been having issues with aho-updates. It used to automatically appear once I post a chapter, but none of my May posts have appeared on the site. I don’t know why..hopefully it will be fixed soon. Hopefully this post will show up on the site.

Chapter 48     Hu Han is dead

A small blood hole appeared in between Hu Han’s brows. Xuan Luo immediately stood up and tried to locate the direction of the dart.

However, the sky was clear and not a movement could be detected.

“What did you just see?” Xuan Luo asked Wang Yuan, who was at the closest distance to him. Everything happened so quickly, but some grass must have felt the wind!

“What!?” Wang Yuan was confused and had no idea what Xuan Luo was talking about. He was surprised and curious as to why Xuan Luo seemed so stirred up.

As Xuan Luo looked at Wang Yuan, he turned to Cai Qin and Dong Fang Xin as well; all of them had bleak expressions on their faces. They looked at Xuan Luo awkwardly.

“What’s wrong?” Cai Qin has high IQ and knows Xuan Luo’s behaviour wasn’t normal. Something must have happened.

“Hu Han is dead!” Xuan Luo replied quietly.

“WHAT?!?!” Xuan Luo’s statement was like a shocking lightning to them. It had a direct impact on Cai Qin and the rest of the group.

Seeing their shocked expressions, Xuan Luo pointed his finger towards Hu Han, whose eyes had rolled backwards and only whiteness could be seen.

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 47.

To my dear readers,

This chapter was very strange and amusing. When you read it, you’ll understand what I mean. The ____ is probably some type of “drug” that makes a man horny? lol I don’t know. You figure it out. 😛 (the author didn’t actually write the word out)

I’m still not feeling too well, but my condition has improved compared to last week. Thanks for all the nice comments. ❤

Chapter 47     An unexpected change

Just as Xuan Luo was about to brutally pounce on Hu Han, Dong Fang Xin released a yell and stopped him in his tracks.

“Wait! Don’t take his life temporarily!” Dong Fang Xin anxiously called out. Her voice was evidently weak. It was obvious that the statement consisted of all her strength.

Earlier, Dong Fang Xin wasn’t careful, therefore she was wounded by Hu Han. Currently, her situation wasn’t looking very optimistic. Xuan Luo didn’t know what to do in order to help cure her. Honestly, Dong Fang Xin was overly worried. She had mistaken and thought Xuan Luo was about to kill Hu Han. If that was the case, they wouldn’t be able to find out the whereabouts of Dong Fang Yu.

Xuan Luo didn’t think much and directly headed towards Dong Fang Xin. Seeing Dong Fang Xin covered in fresh blood, Xuan Luo felt extremely guilty. If he was able to do something earlier…then Dong Fang Xin wouldn’t be injured right now.

“Where ..is my…sister?” Dong Fang Xin weakly questioned. Yet, she was still forcing herself to stand as she fixedly stared at Hu Han.   Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 47.”

To my dear readers,

I’m still in a great deal of pain, hence I haven’t posted in a week. I’ve been suffering a lot, and not exactly in the best of mood. Some days, I’m in constant pain (every second).

Chapter 46     Hu Han

From all the chaos, out came a person with a huge blade on his shoulder. That person was Hu Han. However, the moment Xuan Luo saw him, he felt like Hu Han went through a transformation of some sort.

Since the main boss came out, the disciples from Shen Tui Men stopped fighting. They knew they were no match for Xuan Luo and his group. All of them were scared to die; especially since Wang Yuan fought with no mercy – he literally chopped anyone in sight. He had no regulations.

However, because Wang Yuan was the way he was, his presence alone was able to push down the enemy.

“Hu Han?” Xuan Luo faintly squinted his eyes. As Xuan Luo looked at him, he wasn’t quite sure.

Dong Fang Xin and the rest of the group were taken aback by Xuan Luo’s gesture, but they didn’t ask questions. Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 46.”

To my dear readers,

I’m so sorry for the delay. I have been in a lot of physical pain lately, and it has been stopping me from doing many things (including translating). Please be patient with me. If I disappear for a bit, it’s not because I have stopped translating, but due to personal reasons.

Anyhow, this chapter is good but so difficult to translate. It is definitely not 100%. Probably 85%

Chapter 45     Came at them

“This is Shen Tui Men’s headquarter.” Dong Fang Xin pointed straight at a building.

Xuan Luo looked ahead and deeply murmured, “Shen Tui Men really knows how to pick their location.”

This mountain god temple was located very close to Qian Deng Zhen. Perhaps Shen Tui Men was quite superstitious, therefore they chose this location as a foundation to their influential power. However, this mountain god temple looked very worn down. If a random person glanced at it, he/she would probably assume it was an abandoned temple. Little did they know that it was a place where Shen Tui Men committed crime.

But compared to other places, this piece of land was very good. In fact, the construction of this building relied on the mountain; as if it was embedded in the mountain. Hence, it was very difficult to attack and easy to protect.

Subconsciously, Xuan Luo’s eyes grew hard. This was the first time he had experienced something like this. Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 45.”

Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 44.

To my dear readers,

This chapter was so awkward to translate. It sounds so weird.. it’s probably about 85% accurate. Chapter 45 will be much better (and much more interesting), but it’s also difficult to translate. *sigh*. Sorry for taking so long. My mind doesn’t want to translate because of the amount of concentration needed. It’s very hard for me.

Chapter 44     Discussion

Xuan Luo was about to explain, he didn’t expect the lady to speak up and help him ease the situation. His impression of her increased on another level. Xuan Luo was curious about the lady who spoke up. Why was it that her words were able to control these angry looking men? They backed off immediately. But then again, it was none of his business. Currently, the most important thing was to find out the headquarter of Shen Tui Men and save Dong Fang Yu!

“Miss…can I ask you something?” Since Wang Yuan backed off, Xuan Luo looked at the woman who spoke up and asked with a smile on his face.

“I’m Dong Fang Xin. Dong Fang Yu is my older sister!”

Xuan Luo couldn’t help but looked foolishly at Dong Fang Xin. In his eyes, Dong Fang Yu was beautiful, but Dong Fang Yu was also gorgeous. However, their beauty was totally different. Although they were siblings, the two of them looked nothing alike.

“Oh, I see…” Xuan Luo thought to himself, “No wonder the lady’s commands are so charming, and she has the ability to control these guys. Definitely not a simple* person!”

“And you… sir?” Dong Fang Yu looked at the handsome young lad and asked out of curiosity.

“Xuan Luo is my name. I’ve met your sister before!” As Xuan Luo spoke, his grin lingered on his face.

Dong Fang Xin consciously caught Xuan Luo’s grin and began to feel relaxed. Xuan Luo’s grin wasn’t something that anyone could fake; it was a combination of rejoice, happiness and sweetness. Therefore, Dong Fan Xin’s vigilance towards Xuan Luo was decreasing more and more.

“Xin jie, why are you…” The woman who was analyzing earlier spoke up. Xuan Luo would describe her as wise and farsighted. From what he heard/saw earlier, she appeared to be very articulate and careful.

Dong Fang Yu lifted her hand up to stop the girl from continuing her sentence. The other two big guys were also thinking of the same thing. But Dong Fang Yu ignored their questioning glances and continued talking cheerfully with Xuan Luo.

“So how do you think we can rescue my sister?” Dong Fang Yu asked. Deep down, she was smitten by Xuan Luo’s attitude and good looks. How could she not continue a conversation with such an attractive guy? But Dong Fang Yu didn’t consider other aspects aside from Xuan Luo’s physical appearance, thus her mind is quite dirty.

Xuan Luo had no idea how to rescue a person. In his opinion, he just hoped his martial arts was better than his opponents. When it came to trickery or scheming, he was definitely an outsider. If Xuan Luo had already experienced all the worldly things, he probably wouldn’t be out here right now.

When it came to learning through experience, it wasn’t merely about the physical aspect. If you were in jiang hu and your life was like a blank piece of paper, then it was useless even if you had a strong body and good heart. Although, Xuan Luo’s dream was really to protect his loved ones…

——-

“Actually, I think the da jie** is quite right. Why don’t we continue listening to her opinions?” Xuan Luo looked at the girl next to Dong Fang Xin. However, Xuan Luo shouldn’t call the girl a “da jie”. Based on appearance, the girl was approximately 16 years of age. She was around Xuan Luo’s age, yet Xuan Luo called her a da jie. That was a huge mistake.

“You little punk, who are you calling da jie?? I’m only 16 you dumbass!” The girl glared angrily at Xuan Luo.

“Cai Qin!” Dong Fang Xin yelled out her name, showing her displeasure.

Cai Qin was actually Dong Fang Yu’s personal maid. But Dong Fang Yu had never treated Cai Qin like a servant. Instead, she treated Cai Qin as if she was her sister. Therefore, Cai Qin was very obedient towards the both of them. However, she still had her temper.

*cough cough* Xuan Luo lightly coughed because he wanted to break the awkwardness. Basically, he had the tendency to call females da jie. Usually, that would be a great way to strike a conversation with the opposite sex. He didn’t expect such a pretty lady to have such a fierce temper simply because he called her a “da jie”.

“Don’t take it to heart!” Dong Fang Xin felt bad and said apologetically to Xuan Luo.

“Haha. Of course.. If it weren’t for your sister, I might not be here today…” Xuan Luo decided there was no point in hiding anything. Even if he didn’t tell them now, eventually, they will find out.

“How can we save her though?” Xuan Luo asked.

“Yes, we need to think of a plan. But time is running out and I have no idea how my sister is doing right now!” Dong Fang Yu anxiously exclaimed. After finding out more about Xuan Luo, she basically trusted him completely; especially when she saw the expression on his face when he spoke of her sister.

“Please come in and we will have a discussion!” She gestured with her hand, and allowed Xuan Luo to go inside. Then, the rest of the group followed as well.

——-

The sky was slowly turning white and the red daylight could be seen slowly raising. The blackness was slowly diminishing.

“Okay then. Later, we shall follow our plan that we created! Whether we can save my sister will depend on Xuan Yuan (his first name) the martial artist***” All of them nodded after one another.

Although they didn’t sleep the entire night, the weariness did not appear on Xuan Luo’s face. They mainly spent the night discussing a plan on rescuing Dong Fang Yu, but once in awhile, they would bring up some family issues. Hence, Xuan Luo had a greater understanding of the four now.

Wang Yuan was the guy who attempted to strike Xuan Luo. The other guy’s name was Liu Hu, and both of them were hot blooded men. Although they weren’t very strong, they were very loyal. As for Dong Fang Xin, Dong Fang Yu’s sister, she was a very kindhearted lady but also very good at coming up with conspiracies. Lastly, the maid Cai Qin was extremely close to the Dong Fang sisters; she was also very good at analysing. Any time someone had trouble or was questioning the plan, Cai Qin would be able to explain the reasoning behind it.

Cai Qin’s fighting abilities were not very high. But when the enemy approaches, she could save herself. She was like a trusted counselor of Cha Lin. All her experiences from working and dealing with the business had made her very wise.

One night was enough for Xuan Luo and the rest of them to get along. After all, they all had the same goal.

When enemies meet, sometimes they could become friends. Although Xuan Luo and these guys were not trying to use each other, in a way, they were somewhat trying to.

Shen Tui Men’s behaviour truly turns up one’s nose. But it couldn’t be helped because their wings have gotten strong. Therefore, currently the most important thing was to bend the fully developed wing.

Xia Luo village, Guan Shan Jue were all affected by Shen Tui Men. When Dong Fang Xin was listening to Xuan Luo tell his story, the group were disgusted and angered.

Xuan Luo took a deep breath and looked up at the clear sky. He had a faraway look and his eyes grew serious.

“I will not allow you to harm my family and friends! Never!!” Xuan Luo stated with determination.

 

*It’s translated as “simple” but it sounds so odd in English. Basically, it means she’s not someone that can be judged based on appearance. She has a lot of background or information. She is a lot more complicated than she appears to be.

**da jie means older sister. Usually, Chinese has the tendency to refer others as sisters, aunts, uncles, brothers even if they do not have any blood relations. “Da” means older/bigger. Usually, you only call someone a big sister if they are in fact a lot older than you.

***In this whole chapter, they keep talking in third person and keeps referring to Xuan Luo as 少侠, which I do not know how to translate properly. It’s not really a martial artist, but it’s like a guy that does heroic stuff?? Omg, so confusing. (Btw, I tried avoiding the 3rd person as much as possible, because it sounds so weird in English)

Chapter 43     Cha Lin

Note: The Cha Lin is where Dong Fang Yu and her business is located

It was night time and surprisingly quiet. After Guan Shan Jue fell asleep, Xuan Luo sneaked out of the room and headed to the Cha Lin to search for clues.

Ever since Xuan Luo found out from Li Shao Miao that Dong Fang Yu had been captured by Shang Hua, his heart could not remain calm. Shen Tui Men’s appearance had definitely created a lot of tension within Qian Deng Zhen. Their behaviour resembled thieves, and it was something Xuan Luo could not endure. As martial artists, they aimed to bring peace and justice to the world.

Seeing this, how could Xuan Luo restrain himself? Most importantly, Shen Tui Men had caused harm to the closest person to him.

Although Shen Tui Men had established themselves in Qian Deng Zhen for two years, no one truly knew where their headquarter was. Qian Deng Zhen was surrounded by mountains and forests, hence, there were a lot of areas that hadn’t been touched or developed yet. In the past, due to Cha Lin watching over the village, Shen Tui Men never really made any drastic moves. It wasn’t until recently that they revealed their wolf-like greed to swallow the whole village… Continue reading “Zui Wu Dao. Vol 2 -Chapter 43.”
