Chapter 355 – Burning Heaven Clan’s Forbidden Secret

As those words fell upon Fen Juechen’s ears, he felt himself awash with immense humiliation. No matter the reasons as to why Yun Che had spared his life, it all seemed to him like a form of sympathy… sympathy from a person who set out to kill his kinsmen and annihilate his entire clan.

“Yun Che… kill me if you have the guts! I don’t need mercy and sympathy from a fiend like you!” Fen Juechen gasped rudely, his fingers dug deeply into the ground, as streaks of blood flowed freely between them. His eyes, stared daggers with deep killing intent, desiring to tear Yun Che to pieces with his gaze.

“I shall repeat myself, the reason as to why I am not killing you, is not because I pity you, nor is it sympathy, but is due to my Little Aunt’s plea to spare you… however, this will be the only time I’m showing you such leniency! If one day you do dare to plot against me nefariously, I will personally kill you! So, if you do intend to seek revenge, look for me once you have cultivated the sufficient strength, do not waste this rare opportunity at life you have been given!”

Without giving Fen Juechen another look, Yun Che turned his body, and silently departed.

Looking at Yun Che’s departing figure, Fen Juechen’s eyes bulged wildly, as his heavily weakened body struggled violently. He yelled out with a voice as coarse as sandpaper: “Yun Che… you’re not allowed to leave! You’re not allowed to leave… I have not taken your life… I want to kill you! I want to break your body into a thousand pieces, and grind your bones into ashes! I want to let you experience all the suffering in the world… you’re not allowed to leave… get back here… AHHH!!!!”

Despite Fen Juechen’s hysterical cries, Yun Che’s departing steps were undeterred, and in a short amount of time, Yun Che disappeared from Fen Juechen’s line of sight. He threw himself onto the ground, grasping the charred ashes that littered the ground with his blood stained hands, and began to weep with the utmost despair.

More than ten years have passed since he started cultivating profound energy to now, yet he had never shed a single tear.

But today, he wept deeply with heart-rending pain.

His parents, his paternal grandfather, all his kinfolk, clansmen, and his home, were all gone! His life as the offspring of the clan master, disappeared in a the span of a day, leaving him with nothing. All that he was left with was a vast and limitless hatred which coursed through his very heart, blood, marrow and soul.

The entirety of his consciousness had the imprint of Yun Che’s figure deeply branded into it.

“I want to take revenge… I want to take revenge… I want to take revenge… Yun Che… I will… kill you!!!!”

“Even if I am hacked to pieces, and suffer through the nine levels of hell, I will kill you!!!!”

The sounds of his rage filled vow were carried to great distances by the desolate wind, and as the sky became more gloomy, the howling wind became hurried, as though the boundless sky was quaking in fear from the intense hatred carried in his voice.

“The reason as to why I am not killing you… is because of my Little Aunt’s plea to spare your life…”

It was her…

It was her who pleaded Yun Che not to kill me…

It was her… who allowed me to have this wretched life…

Fen Juechen’s gaze, suddenly became misty, as those unforgettable times began to surface in his mind.

That fateful day, he personally brought an entourage to Floating Cloud City to abduct Yun Che’s two family members. When he had arrived at the rear mountain area at the Xiao residence, in that blink of an eye when he saw Xiao Lingxi, his usually domineering and haughty demeanor and state of mind fell apart.

At that time, Xiao Lingxi was sitting by a creek, with both her hands on her knees. She exuded a sweet smelling fragrance, her gaze was misty-eyed, with an affectionate look, though it was not clear what exactly captured the attention of her mind. The waterfall-esque rivulets of water gushed into the creek, causing the water in its wake to scatter quietly. From Fen Juechen’s angle, all he could glimpse was the side of her face, yet simply just from seeing this side of her face, his heart was acutely entranced for the very first time in his life.

With exquisite and tender brows, her nose seemed to be crafted from the finest jade. She had delicate and sweet smelling lips, her beautiful eyes shone like precious gems, her smooth snow white skin overflowing with the luster and gloss, seemingly covered with a layer of cosmetic powder.

In the boundless mountains surrounded by pristine water bodies, and the blossoming of flowers heralding the arrival of spring, the luscious greenery, as well as the landscape that presented a beauty beyond imagination, completely dimmed when placed beside the illuminant beauty of the young lady, only able to serve as a mundane prop. Fen Juechen felt a ferocious tugging of his heart strings, he who had never once seen a girl like her, felt his emotions run wild in that moment… he could not even be sure if what laid before his eyes was a girl, or a beautiful and elegant fairy from the mountains.

In that moment, he felt himself falling under an indescribable and inescapable spell.

Going from the Burning Heaven Clan to Floating Cloud City took him four days. Yet the return journey back to the Burning Heaven Clan from Floating Cloud City took him close to six days. He meticulously slowed the pace, as he was worried that Xiao Lingxi could not bear the arduous quick pace back. Throughout the journey, he ensured that Xiao Lingxi was not harmed by anyone. Conversely, he took the initiative to reassure her that nothing would put her safety at risk, and also that it would not be long when he would personally send her back home.

And he complied with what he had promised, even as to go so far as to come to blows with Fen Juecheng, as he absolutely would not permit any harm to come to Xiao Lingxi.

Never would he have thought that Xiao Lingxi would actually specially beg for mercy on his behalf to Yun Che… sparing his life in the process.

An unexplainable feeling surfaced in his heart, in his world which was clouded with hatred and coldness, suddenly came a feeling of utmost warmth and gentleness, yet immediately, at the crossroads of his doom, he left behind those feelings of his… all he could think of now, was hatred! And she, was inevitably Yun Che’s Little Aunt, the kinsman of the demon that annihilated his family!

“Kill… kill… I will definitely kill you… I will have my revenge!!”

Fen Juechen stood up, looking at the scorched earth beneath his feet with a vacuous gaze. He began to stumble forward with no idea where he should go or where he could go, plodding forward like a machine, his steps landing upon a ground that was burned beyond recognition. He passed countless bodies as he trudged on… and it was at this moment, he suddenly heard a soft groan sound out beside his ear.

Fen Juechen froze his tracks and threw himself to the ground, furiously scrambling towards the side of Fen Yijue’s body… Fen Yijue’s chest had a blood-filled cavity that was approximately the size of a human brain, his inner organs were completely broken down. In that moment, he was completely breathless. Almost close to two hours had passed; even if he was a Throne, he should have passed on beyond the point of no return…

Yet he was not completely dead, hanging on dearly to his final breath. In that moment when Fen Juechen threw himself to the ground beside him, his eyelids gently fluttered open.

“Grandpa… Grandpa!”

Fen Juechen and Fen Yijue usually did not have much interaction with one another. There was even no love lost between the two, yet in that moment, looking at his paternal grandfather who still had life in him, Fen Juechen was trembling from his uncontrollable emotions.


Fen Yijue called out in an extremely weakened voice, unhurriedly, he used all his remaining strength and lifted his right arm, and among his fingers, clasped a pitch-black key which was shrouded in black mist.

“Chen’er… this key… was left behind by your forefathers… seals a… forbidden taboo… and a terrifying secret… our forefathers left a message… that only at the end of one’s rope… are we able… to take out this… key… Within this key… lies a memory imprint… it will guide you towards… the place where this key can be used… it will make you lose your soul… lose everything… even destroy… the entire… Profound Sky Continent…”

“However… our Burning Heaven Clan… should not… be left in such dire straits… you must take revenge… take… re… venge…”

Fen Yijue’s uplifted right arm came crashing down heavily, as the last breath of life left his body. He desperately clung on to the last vestiges of his life and refused to pass on, all for the need to pass down the Burning Heaven Clan’s last secret…

A forbidden secret.

Fen Juechen reached out with a trembling hand, closing Fen Yijue’s eyes who passed on without contentment. His other hand, which held the pitch black key tightened… suddenly, a strange black mist started to flow out from the gaps between his fingers and a strange demonic presence drifted out…


With the destruction of the Burning Heaven Clan came the exhaustion of Yun Che’s evil intentions. He was extremely clear of what he had committed, and even clearer of the troubles he would attract from the great stir he had caused, as well as the repercussions of doing so.

After leaving the Burning Heaven Clan, Yun Che called out to the Snow Phoenix Beast, which soared into the sky, heading towards the north, flying straight back to the Blue Wind Imperial City.

“You have indeed activated the Mirror of Samsara, passed through a reincarnation, and altered the karmic cycle!”

Yun Che was just about to fall asleep on top of the back of the Snow Phoenix Beast when Jasmine’s voice suddenly rang out in his mind.

“Er, why do you say that?” Yun Che’s eyes which had just closed fluttered open, as he questioned back.

“Killing so many people in one go, yet maintaining such a sombre expression, even your aura and pulse did not experience a single change! Even the most ruthless and murderous demon, would not have been able to maintain his cool in the face of taking so many lives.” Jasmine coldly said: “You are only at the age of nineteen. Based on your life’s experiences, it is not possible to have achieved such a feat, the only possible explanation, is that you have used the Mirror of Samsara and undergone a reincarnation! Before activating the Mirror of Samsara, your life experiences must not have been mundane, and you must have definitely taken countless lives, bearing upon yourself countless sins and blood debts. And the fact that the Mirror of Samsara had no reaction, is proof that it had been used in within these past twenty years!”

“The Azure Cloud Continent’s time period is misaligned with the Profound Sky Continent’s, and during the time in which you were sent to the Azure Cloud Continent by the Evil God’s soul, all kinds of unusual reactions took place, I had my suspicions at that point in time, I can now deduce… you must have had a previous life on the Azure Cloud Continent. That Su Ling’er, heh… must have been one of your female companions!”

“Huu… “ Yun Che lightly let out a sigh. With Jasmine, there was definitely nothing in which he could keep from her. Closing his eyes, he gently spoke: “Your guess is indeed correct, I did have an unfathomable ‘past life’, moreover it was on the Azure Cloud Continent. But it was in that time that I should have lost my life after falling to my death, yet I had no idea why I was reborn here. It wasn’t until I knew that I had the Mirror of Samsara in my possession, that I started piecing together the facts slowly. Yet this matter, other than you, who else would have believed me even if I had told them the truth?”

“Do you remember that time, I once mentioned to you, the people whom I have killed far outstrips the number of those you have killed? At that time, you treated my words with contempt… yet, I really was not joking with you at all. Not only are the people I have killed greater in number than those you have killed, the number is way more insurmountable than you can imagine… if you think of yourself as a vile creature, a demon who could never been forgiven, then I…” Yun Che turned away, and added in an indifferent manner: “Am the demon among all demons. But I have never once taken a life in vain, or ever regretted every single life that I have taken. I believe you and I are alike in this sense.”

Jasmine became taciturn, and turned silent for a long time.

After a while had passed, Jasmine suddenly chimed: “This time, you spared the one person that you shouldn’t have! That Fen Juechen is extremely dangerous. In the future, perhaps there is possibility that he might have the ability to threaten you.”

“I am aware of that. His willpower is astonishingly strong. Under the provocation he has suffered today, his desire to seek revenge against me will lead him to see to acquire strength at all costs no matter the methods, and become a crazed lunatic who is willing to forsake everything. However, regardless of whether he had saved Little Aunt, or because Little Aunt interceded on his behalf, I was unable to take action against him.”

Following that, Yun Che’s mouth twitched, and added in a relaxed manner: “I have the Dragon God and Phoenix’s bloodline, and the Evil God’s Profound Veins within my body, even if he became a lunatic among lunatics, it would not be possible for him to catch up to me in terms of strength. I instead hope that he can treasure this precious life that was given to him by my Little Aunt, and find a place to spend his life peacefully and safely. If the day should come when he does come looking for me to take revenge, the only road left to me would be to reunite him with his deceased family members.”

    1. I know right ! So angry right now, as she is forcing a dangerous future situation for Yun Che….why would he care about what Little Aunt think? She has no experiences in the outside world!

      1. you see, Juechen is too much of a convenient antagonist to pass on. He is basically writing himself.
        This is a tragedy that is waiting to happen, and the saddest part about it is that the MC fully knows it’s going to develop into one. The author forced the stupid-ball on him for forced future content, it’s as if the author is afraid he won’t have anything to write so he saves up on villains.

      1. Know that feel, it’s not bad since he can commit mass murder, but that plot armor and soft-heartedness when it comes to his soft family members makes it hard to bear, he can become the cruelest demon but for contacts he becomes a complete M, his aunt is way too naive, at least our MC will never die and all his mistakes and times he sacrifices himself will always end in a power-up and more plot. Almost dead? willpower it through, totally thrashed? magical boost in the great way of the buddha.

    2. you mean die for sparing someone life.
      fen whatshisname just decided to discard his feeling for little aunt and that his revenge will include her.
      It’s almost exactly like what the MC taught the princess was actually true, and the MC was suddenly struck by a bout of stupid

    3. Seems to me that his “exterminate them by the roots” approach by killing all the disciples would only create more people that would seek the death of him and his loved ones. Afterall these disciples all come from families from across the continent, and with BHC being a powerful sect, many of them probably come from powerful and rich influential families.

      There’s no way the disciple’s families wouldn’t hire constant assassins to kill him and his loved ones… they’d probably even put up bounties on them.

  1. I hate it when authors forget their own setting. If yun che was really worried about leaving a weed, but forced to do so because of his aunts plea, then he could have dealt with any future problems by destroying his cultivation base.

    hellooooooooooooooo. That took me all of 2 seconds to think of. The author and yun che have both forgotten about this method?

    1. It’s not that he forgot, but as he said at the end he simply can’t imagine him becoming strong enought to threaten Yun Che. Sparing his life but destroying any chances of leading a normal life wasnt what his Little Aunt wished for, so if he did that then he might as well killed him.

      1. No.
        “I am aware of that. His willpower is astonishingly strong. Under the provocation he has suffered today, his desire to seek revenge against me will lead him to see to acquire strength at all costs no matter the methods, and become a crazed lunatic who is willing to forsake everything.

        Yun Che is clearly aware that this character will develop into a Dark Horse antagonist.
        It’s beyond bizarre that the author bothered to explain to the audience why Yun Che should NOT let Juechen live, he meticulously explained to us all of the reasons why — yet, he still let him live.
        This is like someone explaining why he should not buy a specific car for 5 hours, and then at the end of the lecture, he immediately buys the car. wtf?

        Kmita makes a whole lot of sense, I myself haven’t thought about it. Yun Che could’ve just crippled him, end of story. This is a very cheaply forced antagonist material right here.

  2. I still can’t believe he didn’t collect interspacial rings or find their treasuries… There’s gotta be some good stuff in there, or at least some Purple Veined Heaven Crystal, probably no chance of the Purple Veined God Crystal, but a high chance of the Heaven variety

    1. Got to run fast. Other wise noisy folk might come clamoring. Especially that elder from the Sword sect. Not to mention other could just label him as evil and gang up on him. It might very well turn into his err… future life which he already lived?!? Yes. Time travel cause headache when writen in 2 Dimension mean.

      1. Really? He can’t take probably a minute or at most two to snatch the treasures of the emperor profound level guy? The one guy who would have stuff that would actually be very helpful to him?

        1. if anything precious was present, his sky poison pearl would’ve shined, thus everything in that area was worthless to him.

          anyway, what kind of cultivation resource does burning heaven clan have that yun che would want when he already has a huge emperor dragon to feast on?

    1. Technically, Luffy never “spared” anyone, he simply doesn’t give a shit about finishing them off, so if someone survives the battle with him, he lets him live because he doesn’t care.

      1. To be fair, only person i know of in One piece that actually dies on Camera and is confirmed to have died 100% is Whitebeard (and ofc GoldRoger but Luffy wasn’t even born then i think)

        1. Ahm.. Nope.
          Robin killed a lot of people on camera, using her power to break spines.
          Zoro did too..
          And we can even say that everytime they used a cannonball (or fruits powers) to destroy a ship (mostly of marines) in the middle of nowhere, the crew was drown to death.

          1. You guys forgot about Ace. Either that, or it was deliberately left out since it’s a major spoiler, but hey, it leads to a power boost for the crew.

  3. lol i just cant.. i hope Juechen will come back to bite Yunche’s and his little aunt ass for being soooo stupid. i will definitely laughing my ass off when that time comes.

  4. If that guy ever plays a mayor role again, i will drop this. There should basicly no way he could ever catch up. If he does it’s just the author beening a bitch

    1. ”There should basicly no way he could ever catch up”i agree but after all this bullsh*t drama it obviously will happen -_- i hope it happens soon, so we will be done with all the BHC crap…

      1. You see why I told you I’m going to skip this arc? So much stupid crap flies on from left and right.
        I’m just going ahead and skip a few chapters until the author stops being insane.

  5. I can’t believe how could he ignore ALL the treasures of a 1000 years old sect, there must have must so many important and helpful items, what an idiot…
    And leaving that one person will bring him so much suffering, and he deserves it all for such stupidity as to let live a root, and it’s not just some simple disciple, but a person that just so happends, has all the qualities that one needs + the “super secret out of the… power that can destroy everything”, to exact revenge.
    Congratulations, there was probably a mistake in translation and Jasmine gave you the profound veins of the great Moron God, at the very least that would explane a lot…

  6. Thx for the chapter, this Fen Juechen plot is so dumb and forced this is the first time i’m this p*ssed while reading the novel… if Little aunt got harmed in some way i won’t mind, for her to at least learn some things -_-

    1. Really? A good person that was raised with kindness and love trying to get mercy for a person she knows isn’t bad….. and you’re complaining?

      Yun Che should have crippled him or something and left him in his old home town….

    2. Nah, I’m not pissed at Little Aunt, Yun Che or Fen Juechen at all. What I’m pissed at is the fact that BHC still “apparently” had a forbidden secret. WTF?!?! As much as this is Xianxia and we are willing to overlook a few things, this author is going a bit too far. I almost felt like slapping the crap out of him at that point

  7. This is what he said last chapter.

    “Today, it was similarly because of enmity. Even though Xiao Lie and Xiao Lingxi were both already rescued
    by him, and were all safe and sound, after experiencing his past life, he would never let himself to idiotically take pity and be merciful. Even if he was to be called the devil, be cast aside, cursed, and feared by the people of the world, he still absolutely would not regret today.

    Because in his previous life, it was precisely because of mercy that other people had forced his Master to die; it was precisely because of mercy, that after many times of scraping past death, he was still forced down Cloud’s End Cliff in the end; it was also because of a moment of mercifulness, that gave Burning Heaven Clan the chance to abduct his Grandfather and Little Aunt! It wasn’t because his heart had become ice cold and dark, it was instead the two lives he lived once and once again teaching him, that any mercy to the enemy, was cruelty to the people by his side… and sometimes, this cruelty was fatal!”


  8. Is there precedent for a Xianxia MC dying a painful death and having a bad ending? Because I want Yun Che to be miserable. I think the best outcome would be his profound veins being crippled again and Yun Che slowly losing all of his loved ones one by one.

    “But I have never once taken a life in vain.” The most bullshit line ever spewed. Put aside the fact that the disciples of BHC were innocent lives. Yun Che’s poisoned entire sects and killed everyone in the surrounding cities. What those people who live in the surrounding cities?

    I really hate hypocrisy. And Yun Che’s time and time again said things and done things which directly went against his own hypocritically worthless words.
    1. He said if Chu Yuechan left him after he raped her, he would never talk to her again. First chance he got to see Chu Yuechan again, at Heavenly Sword Villa, he went to Chu Yuechan. Hypocrite.
    2. He said even in the previous chapter that he would never give mercy. Then in the exact same chapter, he gave mercy to Fen Juechen. I don’t care if he promised Xiao Lingxi, why promise something that goes directly against your own ideals? Oh yeah, it’s because Yun Che’s a hypocrite.

    This whole Fen Juechen thing is a crap forced plot line. Of course BHC would have a forbidden secret that Fen Yijue did not use this entire time. Otherwise BHC would have died too easy. It only took 30+ chapters when Yun Che could have annihilated them on the first day. In one chapter. Maybe two.

    When Yun Che goes back to Xiao Lingxi, she better hate him. Xiao Lingxi is a 19 year old girl who was raised in isolation and has never seen anyone die. Yun Che has now killed thousands of people because of her. If Xiao Lingxi has ANY amount of reasoning or moral character, she should be disgusted by Yun Che. If someone you knew killed thousands of people on your behalf, you’d at the very least be scared of him if not outright hate him.

    1. skipping over most your points, In their world strength determines whos right also killing is another thing essentially normal to this world.So I doubt she will be angry at him really. Plus she already learned about how evil people can be with their Pride these last few years.So being kidnapped already showed her how dishonorable their clan was.

      1. There is no point to reply to Leumash’s posts as he is only complaining about Yun Che being a horrible person by human standards. He has been doing it for many chapters now. Arguing with Leumash or trying to prove he has missed some important things in the story is the same thing as talking to a brick wall and asking how the brick wall is feeling.

    2. I think your reading the wrong novel ….. Or your expectations are too high for This novel knowing the type of novel it is they will be hypocrisy as long as you don’t put your expectation too high you won’t be disappointed much.

    3. Real people are hypocrites.
      And female characters never react how they should to MCs.
      These characters form massive harems where all the girls are happy to share. You never see the beautiful female character that the male just gets along with as a friend. They are always a love interest, or villian, etc. Any male character they help becomes a life long friend willing to die for them.

      If you are going to enjoy any media, you have to accept these tropes that come along with it

      1. I’ll agree that real people do go back on their word, becoming hypocrites. However, when people do that, it makes you doubt their character.

        Females are unnaturally attracted to MCs in this genre. I accept that and at times enjoy it as well. However, I’m expecting Xiao Lingxi to react like a normal person, where the act of killing innocents triumphs her infatuation. It doesn’t matter what era you’re from, if someone you knew suddenly killed thousands of people, that’s a red flag.

      1. Just because I hate the MC doesn’t mean the story isn’t interesting. However, I may soon find my exit point since the story’s come to a place where it’s wrapped up nearly all the loose ends while attempting to create new ones. Like this Fen Juechen plot. Seems forced and unnatural.

  9. this is nothing but sheer pure raw stupidity ….his aunt only told Che not to kill the guy…he could’ve permanently crippled his body and profound vains….but ….noooooo…he hopes that after exterminating his whole family, the guy will just go find a random cave and become a sage and do good for humanity …..!!!!???
    It’s really true that the MC becomes more stupid the stronger they get.
    The Author basically double forced this plot here, which will probably unlock the biggest Boss Monster.

  10. My guess:Juenchen goes for his son, you heard it here first

    summary of this chapter:future plot that could be revealed now has to be saved for the future via leaving some asshole alive

  11. Aww man, this story arc is so stupid and forced, not like it isn’t always forced, but damn this one takes the cake. Leaving a potential danger when Yun Che was all about the not leaving any potential danger is stupid. I mean isn’t that why he wiped out the entire clan? Should have killed the guy and straight up just lie to his aunt, she won’t know and she don’t need to know.

    Gosh, I so feel like dropping this over his stupidity, but I won’t I’m just feeling it at the moment…I mean I can handle a lot of main characters stupidity like Chu Feng in mga who purposely goes looking for trouble, but Yun Che at this moment takes the cake. (sigh)

  12. Come on guys, cut the author some slack, he is trying something that I’ve never seen in a xianxia before (at least the ones that I’ve read so far), which is introducing a main antagonist to the story ,and not the same -we cross paths, you disrespect me, I get a super duper power upgrade, I annihilate your whole clan (you included), and then people get amazed and my fame raises to the heavens etc…, now move to the next level-.
    This time, at least, we get a main villain who will follow the MC in power-ups and cause him some (major?) problems, or at least it appears so to me.
    True, in this case it was so forced that it was kinda cringy. The way I see it, Juechen could’ve stayed hidden (escaped?) or even was away at the moment of the event without the whole little aunt bullsh*t mercy thing, that would’ve been perfectly fine for me.

      1. Stop with this stupid reasoning already.
        Stop defending idiotic decision.
        He owed him nothing but revenge. Yet he let go main culprit in kidnapping his family.
        Pathetic. End of story.
        Read comments above, people finally opened their eyes, you can do it too.

        1. Nope. This scenario seems stupid but it CAN and it IS possible to happen even in real people in modern world.

          Imagine Guy A kidnapped your wife and (with Guy B, C, D) they planned to bait you by using her and kill you afterwards. In the meantime they would gang-r*pe her but Guy A had a change of heart and protected her to the point of almost getting himself killed.

          You successfully rescued your wife and she plead that you spare Guy A. You PROMISED that you would spare her. You then proceed to massacre the kidnappers. Now, are you the type of person who break a promise with the person you LOVE the MOST? Would you chop Guy A’s limbs so he can’t commit another kidnap (analogy to snapping Juanchen’s profound veins) or would you kill him behind your wife’s back?

          How about you put yourself into Yun Che’s shoes? Virgin or not, fallen in-love or not, you should have atleast seen or considered how Xiao Lingxi is important to Yun Che. Change your perspective and imagine the experience.

          Back to the novel, he promised her to “spare” his life. That basically includes his profound veins, meridians and cultivation strength. What had transpired is ACCEPTABLE atleast in my eyes and reasoning. If I was Yun Che, I would probably done the same.

          What BS that only few have ever complained is that there was a “forbidden art/tech” hidden within the sect out of nowhere. NOW that’s BS.

        2. If you have someone to blame and bash, then point it to either the Fen Juancheng that started everything. The main perpetrator of the downfall of his clan.

          Or Xiao Lingxi because she’s too damn innocent like what Cang Yue had been back in the Thousand Profound Beast Mountain (iirc the name). Clearly, this is a case of Stockholm Syndrome.

    1. Main antagonist? Sorry man, but he’s not going for a shounen-esque development like that. That guy is going to come back, force the mc into a corner, perhaps harm his family or friends, and then he will get his ass killed after a dragged out battle to the death, and his last words will be that he loves little aunt or that he didn’t get his revenge yet, or perhaps he will regret something. Ain’t no chance in hell there will be a “main antagonist” that comes back time and time again, if there really was I would drop this. There’s no place for a “main antagonist”, it would take way too much of the spotlight and it’s really boring when the mc meets the same guy time after time while not being able to surpass him… He will get some gigantic boost in power but the mc will surpass him after a short while and he will be helpless and wouldn’t even dare fart in front of him.

      This is just a forced, artificial and illogical development. Yes, I get that he owed a small, remember, a SMALL debt to this guy, just enough not to kill him, but you sure as hell should cripple him, give him a bit of money and send him on his merry way, little aunt said to let him live, not to let him live with all his power intact. When I say small debt, I mean that it’s a minor debt that can hardly be considered as him owing him anything at all. He was one of the reasons that little aunt was kidnapped and almost raped in the first place, and he just defended her because of selfish feelings such as liking her appearance and disliking his brother, who he clearly had feuds with since long before. He also injured yuanba for no reason whatsoever the first time they met and he’s extremely hostile, haughty and arrogant towards everyone. His only good points is that he cares a bit about pride and doesn’t want to do shameless things such as kidnapping people, yet he STILL did it in the end. We pretty much know the outcome already and it’s infuriating…

      The author really made the mc act way too foolishly… Leaving dangerous people alive and being a conceited jackass that is overconfident in his own power, the main character should be cautious and not take risks, but for some it’s like he’s TRYING to create another strong enemy. Sometimes I wish I could just bitchslap this guy for his stupidity. Most of all, he didn’t even CHECK that the strongest enemy was really FULLY dead, at least cut his head off or hit him a few times after downing him, you never know with these powerful dudes, they’re like freaking zombies sometimes. Now the ass-pull antagonism story started because of that. Hell, I’m starting to feel like yun che deserves a good beating now, hopefully this juechen guy will get a bit stronger then beat yun che black and blue and let him hurt his kin so that he’ll never make the same retarded mistake again.

      I’m glad that there’s many that thinks like me and really hates this development. Only two things have truly pissed me off this far in ATG, and that’s 1: chu yuechan and her baby, freaking side character that makes yun che get shackled by feelings and familial relationship for no reason whatsoever, it’s way too early for him to get a child, it should happen towards the end of the novel and 2: This part, leaving him alive and creating a future super-powerhouse to oppose him and hurt those close to him, all while being conceited and believing that he can never overtake him in power, at least we can hope for him to beat up the mc a bit and remove that arrogant air.

  13. Sorry in advance, but after reading the comments i couldn’t help feeling angry.

    I mean, are we reading the same story at all?

    Let me remember you about the chapters of the phoenix blood.
    Literally, his live and the clan were in his hands when he entered the third trial. He saw his beloved and the dagger in her hand and deduced: the trial is to kill her.
    His own life, the princess (though he still didn’t know) and the clan in his hands and he could not kill THE IMAGE of someone he loved. And let himself be killed just to feel her a few seconds again.
    There are a few more examples of this in the novel.
    Now, her Little Aunt tells him that she was about to get r***d and murdered before he could do anything and the guy who was supposed to kill her, who could have sabed the sect by using her (or so they though) took the bullet and almost died to save her.
    You actually think that that same Yun Che who was willing to die for Xia Yuanba would had been able to kill him?
    I mean, for real, he would be willing to die of that was required for them to escape and she would have died of not for ” that kidnapper”.
    Rant over.

    1. And for the guys of” cripple his profound veins”. Are you kidding me? Don’t you remember how this story started? He was treated lile that for being level 1. Now imagine level 0, who even seven years old can bully. Isn’t that even worse than killing him?

  14. I’m not satisfied with the chapter. Too much feels. I thought that in this chapter. The xiao spies will go back and tell the story. But instead I need to wait for another day tko read what ii want to read.. sigh*

    Thanks for the chapter translation.

  15. I’ve been reading quietly on wuxiaworld for a whilewhile, but this is my first comment here.
    First thing, thank you for the chapters.
    Second, I want to defend Yun Che’s decision here. Sure.. it was a stupid, idiotic decision and he knew it, but sometimes you have to stop thinking as a third person here. If we were Yun Che, we would spare that guy too despite all the reasons to kill.

    1. “We”? And you know that for 100% based on what exactly mister?
      IF I were someone who doesn’t give a flying f**k about thousands (or milions, considering his/my first life) of people (regardless if they were involved in a scheme that angered me or not), then trust me, the last thing I would do would be keeping the promise in such case.
      And sorry mate, but if Yun Che first says some things about weeds and roots and being 100% determined to kill every single one of them and then suddenly lets main kidnapper go, then he’s an idiot. Even worse, he did think about it, he thought it through and decided that’s okay.
      I am really looking forward to annihilation of MC’s family only because he spared his life. Although most likely author is gonna make him as another stepping stone, yay creativity and stuff.

  16. Why the author would do something like this I have no clue, it’s pretty much made so that people can hate Little Aunt. And it’s not like Yun Che doesn’t have enough enemies already, why does he need one more. Personally I don’t hate Little Aunt though and I hope she survives, after everything Fen Juechen did in front of her and because she is not aware of what Fen Juechen has done before it’s totally justified that she would want to save his life. We’ll just have to see how the author develops things from here. Best case scenario is Little Aunt will end up with a power-up as a result of this then we just need Cang Yue to get a power-up and we’ll be good (Y)

  17. this arc was definitely the worst arc so far in atg. Dragged as hell and yun che became stupid as fk. I don’t know how people can even begin to think this is the best novel on WW.

    thanks for the chapter :]

  18. Why author… why are you letting the pointless cycle of ‘How Dare You Shame Me! I Must Kill You!’ keep going? This how thing escalated from one proud member of this clan getting uppity, and now you’re leaving yet another member, one who already got uppity and got beat, to keep it going? Oi…

    Secondly, why leave all those treasures? They were the Burning Heavens Clan. Their fire centric treasures and arts might benefit him. Like a lot…

  19. Man this novel has been so perfect so far. Of course there was some forced points but this chapter is just completely awful. This chapter for itself has the power to lower the rating of the story by at least 1 star out of 5. It’s like the author just ran out of criativity and added a bunch of forceful crap. Disappointed.

  20. No killed him is still okay but why.. the “smart”, the “wise” Yun Che didn’t crippled him if he knows that he will become a bad seed later..

  21. I find it funny how Yun Che said it was “impossible” for the guy to reach him… when he himself is one big impossibility. So that weird itself should be out his vocabulary

    1. You can tell that he his going to become hella strong and will just possibly attain a gods veins and abilities. But alas MC is MC they get the last laugh

  22. I have spent the last week reading this far slowly and enjoying it but this…this was beyond forced, i overlooked other encounters but this was too f***ing much, he didn’t even cripple him, she clearly said spare his life, why the hell did you let him keep his cultivation? Where is the logic in that.

    Honestly it makes me feel that i have wasted my time on this story, but i just hope the other arks pick up and we get over this stupidity and hes not an antagonist for another 1500+ chapters at least.

  23. the biggest bullshit moment is that the grandpa is still alive… no chance in hell! he actually directly slew him not AOE’d him, and that’s even when he was weak as hell from his injuries… I don’t buy that at.all.

    1. Fen Juechen froze his tracks and threw himself to the ground, furiously scrambling towards the side of Fen Yijue’s body… Fen Yijue’s chest had a blood-filled cavity that was approximately the size of a human brain, his inner organs were completely broken down. In that moment, he was completely breathless. Almost close to two hours had passed; even if he was a Throne, he should have passed on beyond the point of no return…

      Yeah, he burnt all his organs to a crisp, and he hanged on for 2 hours? Dude, the other emperor profound realm guys died instantly from receiving smaller injuries than that! There’s a limit to forcing the story, this whole chapter made me cringe.

  24. “Do you remember that time, I once mentioned to you, the people whom I have killed far outstrips the number of those you have killed? At that time, you treated my words with contempt… yet, I really was not joking with you at all. Not only are the people I have killed greater in number than those you have killed, the number is way more insurmountable than you can imagine… if you think of yourself as a vile creature, a demon who could never been forgiven, then I…” Yun Che turned away, and added in an indifferent manner: “Am the demon among all demons. But I have never once taken a life in vain, or ever regretted every single life that I have taken. I believe you and I are alike in this sense.”

    Aww, let’s marry these two “demons” together, they’re suit each other so well. Then they can go on a mass-murdering spree together, I think that jasmine wanted to kill several billion people(was mentioned when she talked with the dragon god), who could share her burden better than our dear MC? No, I’m not joking at all, seriously, I really hope for jasmine to become the main wife, in my opinion she’s way better than all the other girls put together and her personality and power complements the MC really well. Everyone else is pretty much a side character, but she is staying by yun che’s side day and night and has helped/saved his life countless times(often at the cost of sacrificing all her poison purging progress and getting extreme backlashes, once she pretty much died) and she is pretty much the reason that he can have any power at all… Everything was given by her, and even if it is out of necessity, it doesn’t change these facts, we all know she will sooner or later get her heart conquered by the mc, she has already started to warm up to him a little bit, at least she is not planning to kill him anymore after getting her body back.

  25. This sucks!!! Mc should have killed the guy and be done with it. I swaer if he in some bullshit way manages to catch up to yun che and threaten him im gonna drop this novel
