Chapter 210 – Reunion

Those who ridiculed him, scorned him, jeered at him, and commented on him… at that very instant, they were all dumbfounded. Even Fen Juebi’s and Fen Juecheng’s expressions stiffened for a moment.

Everyone thought it was plausible that the reason why Fu Yanjie was struck down with a single hit from Yun Che, was because of the combination of Fu Yanjie’s underestimation of his opponent, and bad luck, as Yun Che just happened to attack his weakness. But earlier, everyone could evidently see that Fu Yinjie used his full strength in his attack, and did not hold anything back. Everyone could clearly hear the howling of the sharp blade slicing through the air from dozens of meters away. A full-powered slash like that, the only option an average opponent of the same level have was dodge, even if the opponent were to block it, he might not be able to completely suppress it.

But, not only did Yun Che not dodge it, he met the attack with his bare hands, instantly breaking the blade which was infused with profound energy with his hands. At the same time, with a kick… with nothing but a simple kick, he instantly struck Fu Yinjie down, and caused him to faint on-stage.

Even an idiot would not think that it was still a mere coincidence.

At least, none of those sect disciples who used their haughty attitude to ridicule, jeer and show their sense of superiority was capable of achieving this feat. Collectively, they stopped making any noise, and was no longer able to a single word of scorn. All of them simply looked at Yun Che with dumbfounded expressions. Each of their gaze which was initially filled with underestimation and pride, instantly turned dull, with hints of fear. Their faces were even completely red.

“Is… Is he really at the True Profound Realm?”

“A problem probably occurred with the Profound Assessing Stone.”

“Both Fu Yanjie and Fu Yingjie were instantly defeated. One of them was at the second level of the Spirit Profound Realm, while the other was at the third level of the Spirit Profound Realm… With strength like that, how could he possibly be someone with just the strength at the True Profound Realm?”

Yun Che finished his second round cleanly. Initially, he had planned on trying not to perform this flashy in the grouping matches, so as to avoid being the center of attraction. However, he did not expect that, the moment the tournament began, there would actually be people preparing to plot against him, and it was even a plot from the Burning Heaven Clan. Since that was the case, he had no need to hold back. He struck down Fu Yinjie with a single blow, giving the people who were scorning him a slap on the face, and at the same time, it was an announcement to Fen Juecheng… If you plan on plotting against me, Yun Che, at the very least, find someone with the qualifications to go against me!

“Father, did you see that?” Personally observing that extremely short battle earlier, Ling Yun shifted his gaze, and said with a low voice.

“Mmm.” Ling Yuefeng nodded slightly. “He’s indeed astounding. He has even exceeded my expectations.”

He even lightly added in another line. “Even after I renew my expectations of him now, he might even be more astounding than that. He might even possess the strength to earn a place in the top hundred! A True Profound Realm practitioner entering the top hundred of the Ranking Tournament, this will definitely create an unbelievable history.”

Ling Yun nodded gently. “I have the same thoughts as well. I’m very curious, he, who is simply a disciple from the Blue Wind Profound Palace, with no advantages in resources and profound arts, is actually able to wield his profound energy to display power that surpasses his level of profound strength… Just how does he do it? Unless he’s really talented and gifted to this extent?”

Ever since the official start of the ranking tournament, Yun Che received an extreme high level of attention. After the two continuous instant victories, the level of attention he received shot up in a vertical slope. However, the former attention held the nature of scorn, while the latter, was astoundment and disbelief. A True Profound Realm disciple actually defeated two Spirit Profound Realm opponents in a row, and they were both instant victories! Not just the young disciples, even those powerful elders who accompanied them, were greatly surprised in their hearts.

When Yun Che’s third battle began, there were no longer jeers from the vicinity, and the number of people watching the battle once again increased explosively. This time, his opponent had the strength at the third level of the Spirit Profound Realm. However, his opponent no longer had the attitude of as though he had victory in just grasp; rather, he was more cautious, and only after probing a few times, did he begin swinging his weapon and wielding his profound energy to attack Yun Che.

As to his attack, Yun Che did not even bother looking at it. Straightening his right arm, like pulling out hay, his fist instantly penetrated through the opponent’s heavy sword silhouette and profound energy defenses, accurately hitting his upper chest, causing him to tumble in the air dozens of times. When he landed on the ground, he was already in a daze, and the longsword in his hands had flown god knows where.

“Thank you… for going lenient on me. I admit my defeat.” His opponent stood up shakily, gave Yun Che a respectful salute, and then, left the stage. He was clear that Yun Che’s earlier blow was completely capable of easily dealing a him a heavy blow, but, his continuous tumble in the air, caused the powerful horizontal force he suffered to reduce in strength bit by bit, and when he landed, he basically did not suffer any injuries.

“Blue Wind Imperial Family’s Yun Che wins!”

The third battle was another instant victory!

This time, every eye on Yun Che, no longer held any hints of scorn or ridicule… There was only shock and deep disbelief.

Probably because of good luck, Yun Che’s group did not have any strong practitioners; there were not even practitioners who were somewhat strong. In a single day, Yun Che fought a total of five matches, and every match was an easy victory. And after every victory, his name was engraved even deeper into everyone’s hearts.

There would always be one or more dark horse appearing in every Ranking Tournament, but there was never such an exaggerated dark horse! With strength at the True Profound Realm, even though he had the lowest profound strength out of all the participating disciples, and even though he had a difference of an entire large realm with the second strongest participating disciple, he actually obtained five straight victories in the first small grouping tournament!

The sun had already begun to set, and thus, the curtains closed for the matches on the first day. More than two thousand matches had undergone on thirty arenas. Within these many matches, there would definitely be some there were spectacular and thrilling, but, after the first day of the tournament ended, the hottest topic brought up was not about any of those matches, but about the unexpected dark horse —— Yun Che.

No… If it was a disciple from some other sect defeating a disciple of the same level from the Four Major Sects, then that disciple would be called a dark horse. But, Yun Che’s level of profound strength was clearly stated, yet, he continuously obtained victories over opponents with higher level of profound strength. He could no longer be called a dark horse, but a freak capable of shocking every single person.

“Haha! Brother-in-law, you simply don’t know how spectacular the expressions of those people were. When I looked at them, their eyes seemed as though they were about to fall onto the ground. Hehe, I just knew that, the moment brother-in-law shows his hand, you will definitely give them a good fright.” Xia Yuanba said exultantly. His excited look was basically as though he had personally obtained a great victory in the Ranking Tournament.

“I have looked at the information of the participants in the fifteenth group. There’s basically no strong practitioners inside; at the very least, there’s not a single disciple from the four great sects. I can only say that our luck is pretty good.” Qin Wushang said calmly. “That’s why, Yun Che, do not be complacent after obtaining the easy victories today. The opponents you went up against today, all possess strength at the very bottom of the spectrum, none of them have the qualifications to enter the top seven hundred places.”

“I understand.” Yun Che nodded.

At this time, in front of them, five white-clothed, fairy-like figures flowing with ice spirits slowly walked over. With a single glance, it looked as though five goddesses had descended from the clouds, allowing people to slightly feel as though they had arrived at the realm of immortals.

Looking at them, Yun Che was slightly startled, and he subconsciously stopped walking.

“Ah… it’s big sis!”

“Big sis, big sis!”

Growing up with Xia Qingyue, who was such a world-class beauty, and adding that he had a few screws loose in his brain, Xia Yuanba had a rather strong immunity to beautiful girls. These stunning girls from the Frozen Cloud Asgard, coupled with their extraordinary temperament, were enough to cause even elders who were rich in experience to be trapped in a daze for a long while, let alone energetic youths. But Xia Yuanba was completely untroubled in this area, immediately shouted out of delight, and lightly sprinted towards Xia Qingyue, as though he did not notice the other girls from the Frozen Cloud Asgard around her.

“Yuanba?” Xia Qingyue’s beautiful eyes showed hints of astonishment. She stopped her steps, and was absolutely surprised from encountering Xia Yuanba here. Looking at her brother who had grown even bigger and muscular, the chill in her eyes had completely dispersed, and with hints of surprise, she said with a gentle voice. “Why are you here?”

Xia Yuanba’s giant figure stopped before Xia Qingyue, and his expression was filled with excitement. Back then, Xia Qingyue had always stayed within the house, and this was also the first time he was away from Xia Qingyue for such a long time, obviously, he would miss her greatly. Now that there were finally able to meet each other, he was obviously happy beyond compare. “Big sis, brother-in-law and I are no longer at Floating Cloud City. We first arrived at New Moon City, and then, eight months ago, we went to the Blue Wind Profound Palace together. This time, I’m accompanying brother-in-law in his participation in the Ranking Tournament, and I just knew I would meet big sis. Big sis, you have become so strong now, I have seen all your matches. If dad were to know that you have become so incredible now, he will definitely be unbelievably happy… Big sis, are you doing well over there? Is anyone bullying you? When are you returning home…”

The excited Xia Yuanba poured a large bunch of words onto Xia Qingyue. When he brought up “brother-in-law”, Shui Wushuang and Wu Xuexin, who was beside Xia Qingyue, gave a sidelong glance at the same time, revealing similar weird looks.

“…” Xia Qingyue’s eyes flurried, and looked towards Yun Che, who was in front of her. “Yuanba, could he… be…”

“Eh?” Xia Yuanba gave Yun Che a glance, and then, shifted his gaze back at Xia Qingyue. He scratched his head, and said with widened eyes. “He’s brother-in-law. It’s only been a year and a half, and big sis no longer recognizes him? Strange, even though brother-in-law’s looks did not really change in these two years.”

Xia Qingyue: “…”

Chu Yueli clearly heard Xia Yuanba’s words as well. She shifted his gaze, and looked at Yun Che with slight astonishment. “You’re that Xiao Che who married Qingyue at Floating Cloud City?”

“Ah?” Shui Wushuang and Wu Xuexin exclaimed uncontrollably at the same time, and they looked at Yun Che with their widened beautiful eyes.

Only Chu Yuechan, although she stopped walking as well, had a cold expression. She simply stared straight into the distance, as if she was an outsider of the mortal realm..

Yun Che, this ultimate dark horse, had garnered the attention of the entire audience, and naturally, it included the Frozen Cloud Asgard. But to Xia Qingyue and Chu Yueli, although Yun Che looked somewhat similar to the Xiao Che they knew, they had never thought that Yun Che was Xiao Che. Because the difference between the two was simply too great; so great, that they could be said to be completely different, and that it was impossible for the two of them to belong in the same world. They firmly believed that this Yun Che just happened to have almost the same appearance as Xiao Che.

Shui Wushuang and Wu Xuexin did not expect that the person they had been talking about for so long, was actually the husband that Xia Qingyue had married with. But, wasn’t it said that the person she married had crippled profound veins, and could only be a cripple his entire life? Then how…

Yun Che took a step forward, and said respectfully. “Yun Che, disciple of Blue Wind Profound Palace, is happy to meet the fairies of Frozen Cloud Asgard. Back then in Floating Cloud City, this disciple did indeed have the name Xiao Che, but currently, this disciple is now named Yun Che.” His gazed shift to Xia Qingyue, and gave a slight smile. “Qingyue, it’s been a while.”

Xia Qingyue slightly nodded as a response, with a posture that was light and elegant.

Hearing the confirmation from Yun Che himself, Chu Yueli’s eyes was in a state of turmoil, and her expression was filled with shock.

Back then, when Xiao Che was chased out of the Xiao Clan, she had personally witnessed the entire scene from the skies above. Xiao Che, at that time, still had crippled profound veins and those veins had been crippled since he was born. When he had matured, the crippling had already been deeply ingrained into him so it was basically impossible to restore them… Besides, even if he did encounter a heavenly miracle the next day and had his profound veins restored, it had only been eighteen months. When his profound veins were restored, he had to train from the beginning. In other words, the time taken for Yun Che to train from nothing to the tenth level of the True Profound Realm, was merely eighteen months!!!

Even as one of the “Frozen Cloud’s Seven Fairies”, this was a truth that she was unable to completely believe and accept.

    1. I was thinking that too, until others rightly pointed out that Yun Che doesn’t know the fate of the marriage certificate so he doesn’t know if she is indeed still his wife.
      (Though meat mountain should have told him by now.)

      1. I think it is a mistake from the author (or my memory, it would make more sense). Didn’t his grandfather told him that she kept the marriage certificate?

        1. well maybe he thought that she didn’t destroy the certificate in front of everyone to give him face BUT may have destroyed it later on since she may have thought they would never meet again

  1. Thanks for the chapter, it has cleared up some good doubts I had about the timeline..

    The only thing i’m wondering….

    In one of the lower paragraphs, Chu YueChan and Xia QingYue were together wondering if its their ‘Xiao Che’.
    Curiously, has Yun Che ever introduced himself as ‘Xiao Che’ and not ‘Yun Che’ to Chu YueChan? I thought he introduced himself as ‘Yun Che’?

    1. “Only Chu Yuechan, although she stopped walking as well, had a cold expression. She simply stared straight into the distance, as if she was an outsider of the mortal realm..”

      Is the only paragraph mentioning Chu YueChan.
      Chu Yueli was the one who picked Xia QingYue up from floating cloud city and saw him there.

    2. If you go back one or two chapters you’ll read the part where Chu Yuechan notices that her sister Chu Yueli and Xia Qingyue are staring at Yun Che when his name is first called and they say that he resembles Xia Che, Qingyue’s Husband. It seemed like she got mad because she remembered when Yun Che was asking questions about Qingyue during the time they were together, so she figured it was him before they did and also she realized she slept with her Martial niece’s husband lol!

      1. i wonder if yuechan married to yun che, she need to call Qingxue…
        something like older sister with more seniority due her position as First wife

        1. IIRC, in the ancient chinese culture (i’ll need to consult with my parents, they’re more insightful of the ancient days than I am), at least what I’ve learnt from my father, (i’m taking into account what we’ve been told as young children about my ancestors), there are some ways to actually rank them.

          E.G, if i’m an outside making a comment, it would be

          “So this is your primary / principal / main wife [tai yan], and this is your 2nd mistress[yi lai] (as in mistress, noting that she’s second in the hierachy) , then 3rd mistress, etc”.

          If i’m an insider (as in related to the family, but horizontal, not vertical, like brother in law to the said people), then depending on how endearing, you call the person by name, with the connotation elder sister or younger sister, irregardless whether the person is younger or older)

          If i’m an insider (as in vertical, like a child one of them), then I address as “dai gu”, “yi gu”, (if on the father’s side) or “dai yee, yi yee,” (if on the mother’s side).

          The emphasis is very strong on whoever gets married first, so right now, Xia QingYue would be the ‘principal wife’, so she takes the title for the most senior, then depends on whoever gets married next (I suspect Cang Yue will the second to get married). Even then, Cang Yue will have to address Xia QingYue as “dai jie” (elder sister) by rank, unless they’re dear enough to drop the ‘seniority honorifics’.

    3. @erogami27 , @Maukka , @Lord Raijin ;

      thanks for the input.

      I was curious because as you can see in the Wuxiaworld ATG Spoilers thread, I write and maintain (to a small extent) an ‘event timeline’ because there were things in the timeline that became so confusing. This chapter (210) answers a lot of questions, such as

      1) its been 18 months since Chu Yueli pulled Xia QingYue away from the Xiao sect. In fact Xia Yunba said “its been one and half years” (so we now know that the author is using gregorian calendar instead of the 13/14 month chinese calendar system), and then Chu Yueli affirms it has been 18 months.

      2) its been 8 months since Xia Yunba and Yun Che entered the Blue Moon Palace for their cultivation (after leaving New Moon City arc.

      I had an issue where this paragraph confused me for a moment (before the three of you corrected me)

      Yun Che, this ultimate dark horse, had garnered the attention of the entire audience, and naturally, it included the Frozen Cloud Asgard. But to Xia Qingyue and Chu Yueli, although Yun Che looked somewhat similar to the Xiao Che they knew, they had never thought that Yun Che was Xiao Che. Because the difference between the two was simply too great; so great, that they could be said to be completely different, and that it was impossible for the two of them to belong in the same world. They firmly believed that this Yun Che just happened to have almost the same appearance as Xiao Che.

      So thanks to each and everyone, I’m really happy since it will help me to find a way to re-arrange the timeline to be more concise and precise. (I still think that the author has actually written the story to keep the time differences intact, unlike other authors like IET who liberally uses years and years and therefore the timeline becomes blurry)

  2. Thanks for chapters 🙂

    Theirs something i Don’t understand is Palace Chief Qin An idiot???
    I mean he seems to think that its gonna be the hardest thing in the world to enter the top 100??? but from what he can already tell and how easily he beat the crap out of that Heavenly flame Young master back at the palace without even using his weapon shouldn’t he at this point be asking for more then just the top 100?? I mean even if that kid got crushed he was already at the 5th rank of the spirit profound realm and he beat him unarmed among 5th ranker’s with the arts he uses shouldnt that make him 1 of the strongest young generation 5th ranker in other words he would need to fight against a 6th ranker like Ling Jie just to be forced to use his weapon so at the very least his power with his earth profound blade is at the peak of the 6th rank of the spirit profound realm ( Thats the least palace Qin should be able to guess) and from the way the intro went apart from the top 4 clans nobody else has anyone in the 9th rank or higher as for 8 im unsure their top people were around the 7th rank so isn’t it quite easy for him to reach the top 100?? I donno maybe im wrong but in my opinion that’s what i think I don’t believe he will pull out his weapon unless he is put into a group with Ling Jie and watch that match turn into a 3 hit showdown!!!!

    1. Palace Chief Qin isn’t stupid he just doesn’t know Yun Che’s true strength. The Top 100 have strength above the 5th Spirit realm, so far Yun Ch hasn’t fought anyone (human) over the 3rd or 4th spirit realm so far I believe, well in front of these people. The only people who have an understanding of Yun Che’s battle prowess are Jasmine and Little Fairy since they have seen him killing monstrous beasts at the earth profound strength.

    2. Nah. All Chied Qin said was “don’t get too cocky after these easy victories (fighting bare-handed against people one realm higher)”. He didn’t doubt Yun Che can also make a good show of the harder ones (two or three whole realms up). He has witnessed Yun Che in action after all. He’s just concerned he’ll underestimate someone if he gets too complacent.

      1. I think if Palace chef Qin didn’t hold on and constantly compare Yun Che with a normal standard human he would go insane some time ago. Consider this. if you meet a human with superman power you have 2 choice.
        1. start expecting him to do anything, from going into a burning building or lift up a whole continent to space with his lill pinky
        2. realising how insighnificanlty small he/the rest of the world that he know is and there by crushing his own ego. or start worshipping him

  3. Gonna be such a treat to see Fen Juecheng get pissed af and tell the participants from his sect to take out Smooth Che, only to realize that all of their techniques are useless against him.

  4. Ah how funny. I forgot that its only been such a short span of time since Xia Qingyue left. He really did progress super fast. If in a year and 6 months he got 10th true profound realm then another year and a few months would be early to mid earth profound realm easily. Chu yuechan looks unhappy lewl.

    Thanks for the chapter.

      1. That’s where you’re wrong my friend. There would be no bloodstains to speak of; however, there would, for a short while, be 2 absolutely gorgeous ice sculptures. They’d fade into dust shortly after tho, as Chu Yuechan would not condone leaving statues that beautiful around for Yun Che to admire.

    1. a lot of conflicted thoughts.

      She is a smart woman, so I think she’s already connecting the dots.

      Though I still it find it hard to believe, that Xia QingYue, who is supposed to be very intelligent, took such a while to really recognize her husband (then again he changed a lot, but in the beginning we all can see that Xia QingYue was gifted with intelligence and looks)

      1. I’m pretty sure she recognised him straight away, but it’s because she’s intelligent that she thought it was utterly impossible to be him. It already pointed this out in the last paragraph man, even if somehow he fixed his profound veins the very next day (which was supposed to be impossible) then there’s still the fact that he would have to have gained an average of one level every 2 & 1/2 weeks without fail since then (which is even more impossible) should make it much easier to believe that this is Xiao Che’s doppelgänger and not the same person.

        If she instantly accepted that they were the same person to begin with, without questioning the absurdity of the difference between the Xiao Che from her memory and the Yun Che of now, then I’d call her a fool. Her reaction however is that of an intelligent person.

        1. aha, okay. I think you’ve made a lot of sense (in this explanation, at least i think i’m learning to see it your way).

          Yes, I suppose that is the case. Thank you. Now this would seem to be quite repetitive (people always think of Yun Che as a weakling, at their own peril).

          1. No, more like Yun Che is someone that you shouldn’t try use normal reasoning with, he’s always gonna be that one exception to the rule… Like how Qingyue’s teacher reacted, ‘I see him standing in front of me but I still can’t believe it!!!!’

          2. Raijin; they don’t know that (yet) though, do they? We only know that because he’s the MC and we see everything from his perspective.

  5. I love how his third opponent was just like, “Thank oh great and powerful Smooth Che for not crumpling me like paper…” That’s what he said right? That’s how I remember it being said.

  6. Thanks for the chapter, Scrya, alyschu and Yannis M! Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤
