Chapter 362 – The Terrified Xiao Sect

The state of Ling Tianni’s injuries were extremely serious; if the wound on his chest was a little deeper, it would have been enough to destroy his internal organs. He understood very clearly, that Yun Che had shown mercy in the last attack. Not only was more than half of the power suddenly retracted, even the target of the attack had deviated from his vitals. He made a long sigh in his heart, and said to Ling Jie with a frail voice: “Let us… depart…”

Ling Jie didn’t speak, and was about to leave bringing Ling Tianni. At this moment, Yun Che’s ice cold voice came from their behind: “Ling Tianni, you want to leave just like that?”

Ling Jie’s footstep stalled, and Ling Tianni also faintly shook… And Ling Jie, had actually clearly felt Ling Tianni’s body tremble… That’s right, it was trembling! Moreover, it seemed to be a tremble from fear. The moment such a thing like a demon of the heart was planted down, even such an unparalleled expert at the level of the Sword Saint would find it extremely difficult to free oneself and resist against it.

Yun Che stared at Ling Tianni with a menacing gaze: “Leaving just like that, are you not afraid that I’ll hold a grudge in my heart because of this, and one day slaughter my way into Heavenly Sword Villa, transforming your Heavenly Sword Villa into a second Burning Heaven Clan! Do not doubt whether or not I have the capability to do this… Three years ago, I didn’t possess the slightest bit of profound strength; one and a half years ago, I took the first place of the Ranking Tournament; now, I can single handedly annihilate Burning Heaven Clan… Even though I cannot defeat you alone right now, and it is more so impossible to destroy the Heavenly Sword Villa at the moment, in two years, if I am given at most two more years of time, I’d be able to transform Heavenly Sword Villa into rubble as easily as lifting a hand… Do you believe it or not!!”

In three years of time, from no profound strength at all, to being capable to heavily wound Ling Tianni; this kind of speed of growth could be said as unheard of in all history, and could shock the entire world, even to the extent of making one shiver without feeling cold. No one could imagine just how terrifying of a realm Yun Che’s strength would reach in two more years of time with such a speed of growth.

Perhaps at that time, he really would be able to singlehandedly match the entire Heavenly Sword Villa.

Ling Tianni’s body trembled once again… A junior not even twenty years of age yelling to annihilate Heavenly Sword Villa, originally ought to be an extremely funny joke; but not only was Ling Tianni unable to laugh, he instead felt his entire body turn cold. Even assuming he didn’t have the inner demon, these few words of Yun Che were still enough to make his innards shake with fright. Because today, he had already personally experienced Yun Che’s terror… Even he, was already very much regretting coming to hunt Yun Che down. In the end, not only was he unable to kill Yun Che, he had instead received grave injuries, and was also left with an inner demon. Furthermore, he had invited in an extremely frightening enemy for Heavenly Sword Villa.

“But worry not, I won’t!” Yun Che said as he slightly clenched his teeth: “Because the person who wished to kill me was only you, and not the entire Heavenly Sword Villa. And even you, I did not kill… Because Little Jie is my brother, and I absolutely am not willing to strike and kill his loved ones. The reason why I am saying these is to let you know that I am not the utterly vicious and evil person in your words. What I do, who I kill, I have my own standard and bottom line. The enmity between me and Burning Heaven Clan does not implicate anyone else at all. If Burning Heaven Clan’s remnants or descendants comes to seek revenge with me, then that is right and proper. Yet you, Ling Tianni… You are just an outsider who knows nothing at all. In what justification do you have to appear before me with the role of judicator, and even claim that you would ‘execute justice in place of the heavens’!”

“Even though I still have enough strength left to kill you, I’ll spare your life today. Later on, I won’t go find trouble for Heavenly Sword Villa either. If you still think that I am that kind of diabolic person devoid of all humanity, then you can feel free to come kill me again when your injuries are healed!”

Ling Tianni closed his eyes, and let out a long sigh: “Perhaps, it really was I, who was mistaken. Since I have already lost today, in the future, it would more so be impossible to kill you. I also genuinely hope… that I am indeed mistaken…”

“Jie’er, let’s go.”

Ling Jie turned his head around and glanced at Yun Che. The expression in his eyes had gratitude, admiration, and also had a complicatedness that couldn’t be put into words. In the end, he didn’t say anything, turned back around, supported Ling Tianni up the Fierce Zephyr Bird, and took off to the skies.

“Phew….”

Yun Che let out a long breath as his entire person powerlessly fell down and just happened to lean onto Xia Qingyue’s soft chest. He closed his eyes, and said with a faint voice: “Qingyue, don’t leave yet, for a period of time from now on… I need your protection…’

After he finished speaking, Yun Che’s consciousness could no longer hold up, and sunk into complete blank vacancy…

——————————————————

When the news came, Xiao Jietian’s hands and feet turned ice cold, his scalp became numb, and his head almost even bursted apart.

“Are what you’ve said… all true?”

“Undoubtedly true!” Xiao Boyun spoke with a solemn expression: “Ling Tianni indeed acted based on our expectations, and even chased to the Blue Wind Imperial City. But not only was he unable to kill Yun Che in their fight, he was instead gravely wounded by Yun Che and Xia Qingyue joining forces. Yun Che deliberately held back in the end, otherwise, perhaps even Ling Tianni would have just died by Yun Che’s hands. They had battled within the imperial city, and countless people within the imperial city had personally witnessed it.”

“Moreover, Xia Qingyue had come to assist Yun Che under the name of Frozen Cloud Asgard, and didn’t hesitate to attack against Ling Tianni… Yun Che’s strength alone is already incomparably dreadful, but behind him there was actually Frozen Cloud Asgard’s protection in full strength as well! Also, it has been said that everyone present had heard the four words “Frozen End Divine Arts”. Xia Qingyue may have already successfully cultivated the Frozen Cloud Asgard’s unmatched profound art in the legends. Even Ling Tianni could not do anything but face defeat against Yun Che and Xia Qingyue joining forces as husband and wife. In the entire Blue Wind, simply no one would be their match!”

Xiao Juetian fell back onto his chair, his head fully covered in sweat.

“Sect Master, after Yun Che heavily injured Ling Tianni, his own strength had also been greatly exhausted, and he had even fainted on the spot. He must be extremely weak right now, should we…” Even though Xiao Boyun didn’t continue his words, his tone and expression in his eyes had already conveyed the intent clear enough.

Xiao Juetian’s brows slightly moved, and after that he suddenly asked: “Did Xia Qingyue leave?”

The moment he heard these words, Xiao Boyun’s complexion slightly changed, as he then shook his head: “She took Yun Che to the Blue Wind Imperial Palace, and hadn’t come out yet.”

“It is said that Frozen End Divine Arts is a peerless profound art whose might even surpasses the Heavenly Sword Divine Arts, if Xia Qingyue has really successfully cultivated it, then even my father may not be her match. What do we even have to assassinate Yun Che under Xia Qingyue’s protection?! If the assassination fails and leaks our tracks, then we would no longer have the last bit of leeway of compromise!” Xiao Juetian said with seeping with bitterness.

He abruptly stood up, and said: “Prepare the Purple Veined Heaven Crystal, Purple Jade Golden Scale Ointment, and Scarlet Eagle Profound Blood right away. You will personally go visit Yun Che to wish him well. Also, bring fifteen kilograms of Purple Crystals, ten kilograms of White Profound Jade. Also, from amongst the female disciples below eighteen years of age in the clan, pick out three female disciples with superior aptitude and looks, and gift them to Yun Che… Depart before night falls today, and make sure everything arrives before Yun Che’s injuries are healed.”

Purple Veined Heaven Crystal, Purple Jade Golden Scale Ointment, Scarlet Eagle Profound Blood… These were the three rarest and most valuable amongst the tens of thousands of miraculous medicines Xiao Sect possessed. In order to express his sincerity toward Yun Che, it could be said that Xiao Juetian had steeled his heart and spent the capital of blood. Hearing these, Xiao Boyun’s flesh hurted so much that his entire body trembled non-stop, but since things had already come to this point, facing the threat of the clan being annihilated, they also had no other choices.

………………………………

Yun Che was unconscious for an entire two days before he finally woke up.

The main reason why he fainted for so long, wasn’t because of too much overdrafting of strength, but was because the mental exhaustion was overly enormous. After all, with his current abilities, using the Dragon Soul Domain was too far-fetched.

“You’re awake.”

The moment Yun Che opened his eyes, a clear and cool voice rang beside his ears. He saw himself currently laying atop a soft bed, and around it, was an extravagant draping curtain embroidered with golden feathered phoenixes. A hint of a faint, pleasing fragrance traveled to the tip of his nose. He turned his gaze to the side, and saw Xia Qingyue’s graceful silhouette beside the bed.

“Qingyue…” Yun Che called out, his voice somewhat dry and bitter, as his body was still filled with a heavy sense of feebleness: “How many days did I sleep?”

“Two days,” Xia Qingyue turned around: “I’ll go call them.”

“Ah… wait.” Yun Che hastily called her to stop, and Xia Qingyue’s footsteps also stopped with it.

“This time, it’s really fortunate that you came.” Yun Che said as he smiled.

Xia Qingyue half turned her body around, her voice was serene and cool, but also gentle: “Without me, Ling Tianni wouldn’t be able to kill you all the same.”

“Even if he can’t kill me, I would only be able to run away flustered in the end. But with you, I was able to make him go back with an ashen face… The outcomes, are entirely different.”

“…Ling Tianni being heavily wounded by you, is being widely spread outside. The title of Blue Wind’s number one can already change its ownership.” Xia Qingyue took a glance at Yun Che.

“Is that so… But such things like titles had always been the most useless of things.” Yun Che said very indifferently. His pair of eyes looked straight at Xia Qingyue, and he suddenly said: “Qingyue, can you come a little closer? I feel like I… have not taken a good look at you for a very long time.”

The conversation that suddenly became dubious, instantly making Xia Qingyue’s breathing become a little disordered. Her body didn’t move, but after a little while, she still faintly moved her steps and sat down beside the bed.

Yun Che also sat up at this moment. Even though his body was sluggish, his profound energy wasn’t empty. In these two days of unconsciousness, his profound strength had already recovered to about one third. Since he had woke up now, his recovery speed would also speed up by several times. The moment Xia Qingyue sat down on the bedside, he suddenly reached out his arms, and carefully hugged onto Xia Qingyue’s shoulders.

Xia Qingyue’s body visibly stiffened a bit, and she subconsciously wanted to move away: “You…”

“Qingyue, close your eyes.” Yun Che gently, yet resolutely, hugged her from behind. His arms slowly slid down from her shoulders slowly onto her willow branch like tender waist. Looking at Xia Qingyue from a close distance, her features were perfect to the point of nearing fantasy.

“What are… you going to do?” Being suddenly hugged by him like that, Xia Qingyue’s breath completely went into disorder, her entire body had even froze right there. For a while, she didn’t even know whether she should struggle and break away or not.

Yun Che’s face slowly neared, and a voice as if carrying the power of magic rang beside her ears: “Qingyue my wife, we have almost been married for three years already, yet in these three years of being husband and wife, I have never kissed you before. This time… will you let me give you a kiss?”

“…” Yun Che’s voice came closer and closer, the warm and damp breath slowly moved from beside her ears to her cheek, and even touched her lips. Xia Qingyue’s entire body went stiff; she, who had never had experienced such things, almost lost all the capability to think, and her entire person that was a lofty lotus of ice, seemed to have turned into a wooden doll.

Yun Che’s cheek slowly neared. Just as he was about to touch Xia Qingyue’s lips, a surge of flustered, yet ice cold energy suddenly blasted him away. Xia Qingyue stood up, not daring to look at him in the eyes. Uttering a “I’ll go tell them you’re awake” somewhat flusteredly, she then left as if fleeing.

Yun Che’s head crashed onto the wall by the push, the pain making him bare his teeth. He stroked the place that was bumped, and exasperatedly muttered in a low voice: “Once I reach Sky Profound Realm, I’ll force one on you no matter what… Ahh ouch, ow, ow, ow…”

    1. some people are a little too sensitive. Nothing wrong with the last sentence. She clearly has feeling for him, just no experience and is embarrassed. What do you want? a change of words. the meaning will still be the same.

    1. Lol, I wonder if he’ll get any other random powerups and be able to fight the Sovereign Realm (was it that or Tyrant that comes after Emperor Realm?) when he’s in the Sky Profound realm. Most likely, he’ll just be able to match up against late stage Emperor realm without the powerups.

    1. I really doubt it. One reason being what Bazara said about Qingyue being there, but several other reasons as well. Even if the have “superior” aptitudes, there’s NO WAY that they’ll be able to keep up with him for any amount of time, and it doesn’t seem like Yun Che is the type to f*ck every decent looking girl he sees, he seems more like the type that likes to dominate a girl’s heart, as well as the thrill of the chase. Most likely neither of those would be applicable for girls essentially offered as sacrifices to him. In addition, I doubt he would trust any girl the Xiao Sect sent.

    2. i’d say in this circumstance he’ll take a shine to one of them. usually they use this kind of stuff to have one of the 3 be really uncommon in a way that no one other than the protag noticed or something. but yeah most likely at least 2 will just get rejected or end up as servants.

  1. wow really nice chapter 😀 i’m the first who readed it completely before comenting :V so i bet the F5 sect already fot the first 2340238423052835132519341 places XD

  2. Thx for the chapter,that title made me laugh xD good to see the Xiao sect has at least a bit of brains, i was missing Smooth Che 😀 but this reminds me of little fairy =/

  3. “Because the person who wished to kill me was only you, and not the entire Heavenly Sword Villa.”

    In BHC, only the elders and the Fen children wished to kill Yun Che. Yet he killed the entire Burning Heaven Clan. What a hypocrite.

    Ling Tianni is a old grandpa who has no way with words. He couldn’t debate his way out of a wet paper bag. Ling Tianni had no way to refute Yun Che at any point in this entire exchange from start to finish because Ling Tianni’s a bubbling idiot. He was always flustered by Yun Che. I wish the author didn’t do that and made Ling Tianni a more suave character. Then at least his lines wouldn’t have been so pathetic.

    Ling Tianni NEVER pointed out Yun Che’s hypocrisies and took the “Heaven’s Judgment” stance. What in the world is Heaven’s Judgment? Sounds like the words of a bubbling idiot to me. Just say you’re going to kill a mass murderer. Who’s going to contest that?

    “Once I reach Sky Profound Realm, I’ll force one on you no matter what… Ahh ouch, ow, ow, ow…”

    Words of a true rapist. Is this supposed to be funny? Rape is funny?

    1. It was hypocritical , but the only reason he said it was so that the rest of the idiot crowd would not think he was evil and demonlike. I think the sword saint knew but he didn’t stop to complain because he realized Yun Che said that to refute what ling tianni said, hence clearing his face. Still bad but did it to not seem bad to the masses , was his only good choice. I think he’s just joking about the whole rape thing because they have been wife and husband for so long. Also the society they live in and just how much he has given to her definitely makes it seem like she should have at least kiss him by now. That just a angry remark that he has no intention of fulfilling.

      1. Embarrassed or not, she clearly was uncomfortable with the whole affection thing. If she’s not ready, he shouldn’t force her! The absence of a clear “no” does not mean “yes”. If he really loves her, he should be prepared to take baby steps in their relationship and to RESPECT her opinions/decisions.

        1. Look here mates, NONE OF HIS WIVES HATE HIM!! If you did not notice it already, the Asgard women (if not all of the women) that he fancies are all very prideful. The only reason he get them to love him because of his “forceful” approach. They are girls that need a guy to lead them (not that to say they are weakwilled). Heck, it was not like he push himself on some random girls that do not like him. He only goes after girls who he KNEW that like him. Qingyue is HIS WIFE, and she LOVES him, that is an established fact. If she REALLY don’t want to kiss him, she could just say “NO” and he can’t do jack about it, furthermore in his condition.

          1. Isn’t that what she did, by shoving him away from her? Seems to me she didn’t want him to kiss her. And when you say “he can’t do jack about it” well what about when he can? Is it ok then to use the forceful approach?? And what, does marriage make it suddenly ok to do whatever you want to your spouse, and to disregard their decisions? She stiffened when he hugged her. STIFFENED! Clearly, she was not ready for the next part in their relationship. Maybe Yun Che needs to slow down? I never said Qingyue didn’t love him, what I AM saying is that maybe he is going too fast for her.

            Really, they need a guy to lead them? NEED? Please. This is a sect that, for over a thousand years has raised strong independent women who “don’t need no man”. Its pretty sexist to think that a woman needs a man. Of course, I’m not anti-love or anti-men, and I do think that the FCA disciples should be free to love if they want to. But if the FCA women decide that they don’t want a relationship, who are you to bash them over that decision? ITS NOT YOUR DECISION.

      2. I guess I named the crime wrong as rape is a very specific action. He’s committing to assault. The rape will probably follow though, as Yun Che is a known rapist.

        Xia Qingyue may be embarrassed, but unless she consents, it’s still assault.

    2. “In BHC, only the elders and the Fen children wished to kill Yun Che. Yet he killed the entire Burning Heaven Clan. What a hypocrite.”
      You are saying the elders and Fen family took actions themselves, and didn’t get their servants to do it?

      As at the wedding attempt or initial attack the earth rank and below died not because they try to kill Yun Che?

      And Junchen didn’t have help in kidnapping the family members, particularly the ones that abused grandpa and almost little aunt

      1. You’re deliberately missing my point. I’m saying a very small subset of BHC truly wished to kill Yun Che. And by this small subset, I’m talking about the master minds. The elders who voted to assassinate Yun Che and kidnap his family and the Fen children who have all plotted to kill Yun Che.

        The Earth Profound Realm practitioners are minions. The practitioners even below Earth Profound Realm? Even below minions. And Yun Che killed them all.

    3. He gave BHC many chances . Thats why it was total destruction. If they had just accept there losses then they would still be there. Seems like other clans are finally catching on. Time to go own some sacred grounds now lol

    4. I don’t get why people think Yun Che is a righteous person. Although he is loyal to the bitter end, he is also extremely selfish. It’s his selfishness that led him to his harem. He doesn’t like people taking advantage of him but doesn’t mind taking advantage of people he views as out to get him.

      “In BHC, only the elders and the Fen children wished to kill Yun Che. Yet he killed the entire Burning Heaven Clan. What a hypocrite.”

      This is not a moral world. There are no unbiased court of law. Yun Che’s action are perfectly explainable to himself. He killed off BHC to stop subordinates from trying to take revenge by hurting his family. (They do have a reputation for that now) The second reason is to give an example so as to be deterrent for others to try the same option. He had no reason to kill Tianni if he could convince him to stop fighting. Tianni is still his loyal brother’s grandpa. Besides, did Tianni try to off Yun Che’s family? Sure he didn’t say those things but they come into play here.

      (I’ll be the first to admit that leaving Fen Juechen alive was stupid. Although loyalty to xiao lingxi was the reason, it still seems pretty stupid. Others pointed out crippling Juechen was an option. A few other noticed it would be worse than killing him which is opposite to Lingxi’s wishes. Regardless I’m sure that there is further plot to this that the author is dying to explore and so set the MC’s lapse in judgement)

      “Ling Tianni NEVER pointed out Yun Che’s hypocrisies and took the “Heaven’s Judgment” stance”

      Tianni honestly didn’t have enough to go on regarding Yun Che. All he knew was BHC requested his help to fend him off. He might know a little bit but that would be very minimal. And I really don’t get why you say Yun Che is a hypocrite. Yun Che is not righteous. Even an idiot should know that. He has no qualms killing people especially if they harm others who are less powerful. He also kills those who plot against him and in order to ensure the safety of his loved ones.

      “Words of a true rapist. Is this supposed to be funny? Rape is funny?”

      Now it just looks like you’re butthurt and grasping at straws. Xia Qingyue is his wife and they have mutual feelings for each other. Even in western cultures it is romantic to carry your wife/girlfriend in your arms to bed. If the love is mutual, being a bit forceful is not rape.

      1. “I really don’t get why you say Yun Che is a hypocrite.”

        I pointed it out directly. Yun Che said Heavenly Sword Villa has no fault because only Ling Tianni tried to kill Yun Che. This logic is stating that only those that try to kill him deserve to die. However, can Yun Che really say that EVERYONE in Burning Heaven Clan tried to kill him? No, he can’t. And he killed everyone. Hence the hypocrisy. If Yun Che said he’ll let Heavenly Sword Villa go regardless of Ling Tianni attempting to kill him, then he’s being consistent.

        “Tianni honestly didn’t have enough to go on regarding Yun Che.”

        Tianni knows that Yun Che killed everyone. And so Tianni knows that Yun Che is a hypocrite because of the same argument above.

        “Now it just looks like you’re butthurt and grasping at straws. Xia Qingyue is his wife and they have mutual feelings for each other.”

        No still means no. You can still rape your girlfriend/wife while still loving her.

        1. “I pointed it out directly. Yun Che said Heavenly Sword Villa has no fault because only Ling Tianni tried to kill Yun Che. This logic is stating that only those that try to kill him deserve to die. However, can Yun Che really say that EVERYONE in Burning Heaven Clan tried to kill him? No, he can’t. And he killed everyone. Hence the hypocrisy. If Yun Che said he’ll let Heavenly Sword Villa go regardless of Ling Tianni attempting to kill him, then he’s being consistent.”

          He didn’t kill Burning Heaven Clan’s disciples because they all tried to kill him. He did so because he feared they would try to kill his family again. (Again, they do have a reputation for that) Hence he pulled out the weed. (I explained my views on Juechen so I won’t go over that again) He also did this to send out a message that touching his family is a not a very good idea. This was effective as the Xiao sect surrendered. There is nothing hypocritical there at all. Yun Che did mention that he has his own standards and bottom line. This fits his MO quite well. He was being true to himself. I already explained why Tianni was let go so I won’t go over that. I would suggest for you to read between the lines and not be so nit picky with a he said/ she said argument.

          “Tianni knows that Yun Che killed everyone. And so Tianni knows that Yun Che is a hypocrite because of the same argument above.”

          Same argument applies

          “No still means no. You can still rape your girlfriend/wife while still loving her.”

          istambay said it best when he said you are living the stories from novels in our modern world settings. It destroys the purpose of having genre. These are different times and cannot be held to the same standard.

          Rape has such a negative connotation. The victim is forced against his/her will to receive an unwanted sexual assault. It implies an act so vile that it destroys the security and well being of the victim. It is evil. Yun Che did indeed rape Chu Yuechan but that was to save her life. She was suicidal at that point. You are painting the black and white rape picture to showcase that Yun Che is evil without cause but that is clearly not true. I’ll admit that Yun Che’s action towards Xia Qingyue is evil if you can cleanly say that she does not love him.

          1. “He did so because he feared they would try to kill his family again. (Again, they do have a reputation for that)”

            This is extrapolating a characteristic onto a whole from a small sample size. How many BHC members directly or even indirectly or even had thoughts about or even knew about Yun Che’s family? Probably less than 100. And so because of the actions of a few, all 73,000 BHC members now have precedent for being family killers?

            “You are living the stories from novels in our modern world settings. … These are different times and cannot be held to the same standard.”

            So you’re saying that me hating rape is anachronistic and has no place here? I understand where this logic is coming from. Back in the day, wives were expected to afford the needs of their husbands and it was criminal to refuse to do so. However, why can’t I measure the story using my 21st century measuring stick? I read stories about history like slavery, honor killings, the Holocaust and am disgusted by those stories because I’m judging them through my 21st views. Should I accept the story as is? No, I’m going to judge the story and feel the way that I feel about it.

            “Yun Che did indeed rape Chu Yuechan but that was to save her life.”

            I know that the author tried to justify the rape. I’m not blind, I read the chapter the same as you did. What I’m saying is that the justification is bogus. He should have let her die. It was her right to decide. It was not Yun Che’s decision to make. The decision should have entirely rested on Chu Yuechan’s shoulders.

            “I’ll admit that Yun Che’s action towards Xia Qingyue is evil if you can cleanly say that she does not love him.”

            No, it’s obvious that Xia Qingyue loves Yun Che. I mean, it was established that she did love him about 50 chapters back. But again, the presence of love isn’t a free pass to kiss and have sex with someone.

          2. We’re really just repeating ourselves at this point. I’m tired… I’m going to have dinner now and forget about this. Let’s just agree to disagree.

    5. I think you should stay away from any stories not suitable for 1 to 2 years old. You are always living the stories from novels in our modern world settings which destroys the purpose of having a genre.

      1. I understand the idea of the setting of Xianxia. However, OF COURSE I’m going to judge a story based on the morals of the 21st century. I live in the 21st century as do you and as does the author who’s writing this story.

        Ever read a book about slavery? You ever get mad at that? At the injustice? Yes, slavery was legal and perfectly acceptable at the time. So should I not get mad?

        I also know what I’m reading. I’m completely against killing and vigilante justice. However, Xianxia involves heavy amounts of both of these. And I read it and I enjoy it because there’s always some sense of karmic justice. Someone tries to kill MC, MC kills them instead. You feel like the MC is on the side of good and moral even when committing obviously heinous acts.

        What grinds my gears is when the MC becomes the villain. No karmic justice, just evil. Yun Che raped Chu Yuechan. Yun Che murdered innocent BHC members in cold blood. A good majority of the BHC were absolutely no threat to him and probably didn’t even know that he existed prior to being murdered by him.

        Where’s the karmic justice? What’s the justification?
        1.Yun Che raped Chu Yuechan to save her life. This is a NO. I don’t agree, the result is NOT worth the crime. Chu Yuechan should have had the right to die and not be raped.
        2. Yun Che murdered innocent BHC members to quash possible future revenge and to also send a message. This is messed up. Possible future revenge? That’s absolutely stupid. Killing people because they might do something. Secondarily, killing innocents to send a message. Let me state that again: Killing innocents to send a message.

        This isn’t my first shindig. I know what an antihero is and rather enjoy stories that involve antiheroes. You never know how far the antihero is going to go or what he’s going to do. The problem is that Yun Che crossed the line into acting like a villain. And I’m hating his villainous actions and how everyone around him is acting like he’s still the antihero.

        1. Wow, you really shouldn’t read this novel if you’re going to be anal about right and wrong. This MC is not righteous. Stop kidding yourself. Yun Che is selfish. Of course he is going to ignore Chu Yuechan’s right to die. He wants her to live. You are faulting an obvious selfish character for being selfish. Great thinking!

          Whatever killing Yun Che did. He was true to himself. There is no truly black and white moment in the novel. The “innocent” you keep banging on top of our head are not cleanly innocent. BHC as a group suppress countless other people. If they thought of oppressing Yun Che, who says they don’t do this to others. If a group of people are willing to be a part of an organization that clearly benefits from suppressing others for thousands of years then who is to say if killing the entire organization is right or wrong.

          Again, there is no court of law here. You cannot judge this novel by our standards of morality.

          1. “You are faulting an obvious selfish character for being selfish.”

            I really don’t know what to say to this. This is basically saying, “Yun Che’s going to do what Yun Che’s going to do, so don’t complain about it.” … What?

            “If a group of people are willing to be a part of an organization that clearly benefits from suppressing others for thousands of years then who is to say if killing the entire organization is right or wrong.”

            Guilt by Association is an actual logical fallacy.

            “Again, there is no court of law here. You cannot judge this novel by our standards of morality.”

            Then what standards of morality can I judge it on? Are you saying that no matter what Yun Che decides to do, I can’t judge him? If Yun Che decides to kill Cang Yue because she fell in love with another man, can’t judge that? If Yun Che decides to kill his child because his child is ugly, can’t judge that?

          2. You are willing to read a novel about an extremely selfish MC. If you are going to blame someone, blame yourself.

            Guilt by association is wrong. I’ll admit that but what other recourse is there for victims of BHC? Will they file a complaint to the police? Oh wait they don’t have that here. The very best they could have hoped for was for someone to bring BHC down. This is why I say you cannot judge this novel by our standards of morality. They simply don’t have the same recourse.

          3. “You are willing to read a novel about an extremely selfish MC. If you are going to blame someone, blame yourself.”

            The novel started out with a non-selfish MC then transitioned into… whatever you want to call what it is now. My absolutely favorite arc of ATG was the Genius Doctor arc. It was funny and served a very healthy dose of karmic justice. Now it’s all, “YUN CHE SMAAAAAASSSHHH!!!” Blame myself? The way the story was written changed on me.

            “Guilt by association is wrong. I’ll admit that but what other recourse is there for victims of BHC? Will they file a complaint to the police? Oh wait they don’t have that here. The very best they could have hoped for was for someone to bring BHC down.”

            This is still Guilt by Association. Some members of BHC committed crimes and did bad things. Thus all of BHC must come down. The problem is that not all BHC members have committed crimes.

            “This is why I say you cannot judge this novel by our standards of morality. They simply don’t have the same recourse.”

            Morality and recourse aren’t mutually dependent. Morality is a separate concept from recourse. Morality doesn’t drive recourse and recourse doesn’t drive morality either. You can have one without the other.

          4. I feel sorry for you Leumash, you were tricking into thinking Yun Che wasn’t a mass murderer, that he wasn’t selfish. I had him pegged since we found out his “revenge” in his past life involved poisoning entire cities of innocent people to get some large sects. I knew he was a brutal fellow when he relished in mutilating someone at profound strength 0.

            I was waiting for the massacres, I knew they would come.

            On the note about the rape. Yep, definitely rape. Should she be allowed to die if she wants. I agree she should. However, she was only willing to die, because she couldn’t stand being a cripple. Nevertheless, as you have pointed out Yun Che is selfish and so he did what he wanted. This was to keep her alive by following the Dragon’s orders (to his delight). The worst thing about Chu Yuechan’s scenario is that she seems to keep crippling herself to help Yun Che… and he’s clearly going to keep getting browny points for “healing” her

            Your stance on the whole, killing people just in case is different to mine. I agree that I don’t think I could do it and it is definitely not the best option. But I know, it is the easiest option. If any potential source of a problem is gone, there can be no problem.

        2. Dude, you are blowing things out of proportion. You are like those guys that tries to see symbolism of an authors work like what would the color blue of his door means where in fact the author just simply choose the color blue because that was the first thing he saw while writing.

          Then there is culture difference. The author does not live in your country so your “moral standards” does not exactly match up.

  4. He really does need to get some , so that he can finally get that miracle boost that qingyue gets that lets comprehension become easier . What was it called again ?

  5. Did they really just decided to send 3 girls under 18 to a married man to appease him?

    How can Xianxia be so full of sexism when there are super strong women all around?

    Oh you Chinese…

  6. Thanks for the chapter. =)

    Also:

    ““Are what you’ve said… all true?”” – ‘Is what you’ve said’, or ‘Are the things you said’

  7. Thanks for the chapter!

    “Once I reach Sky Profound Realm, I’ll force one on you no matter what…” Umm, maybe you should learn the importance of consent Yun Che. I hear the act of forcing affection upon others is called “sexual harassment”. And please don’t give me that “they’re husband and wife” excuse. If she’s not ready, he shouldn’t force the issue! Baby steps, baby steps!

    Blue Wind number 1? I think its time for Yun che to move on. He is now a big fish in a small pond. Don’t forget, Blue Wind Empire is the weakest of all the nations on the Profound Sky Continent. I really want him to go to the Phoenix Empire and get the first 4 parts of the [World Ode of the Phoenix]. Its been nagging at me for a while now.

      1. Right, let’s all do whatever we want whenever we feel like it.
        “Hey babe, I’m feeling horny today. Let me grope your ass for a while.”
        “Wait wha-”
        “No, no, you don’t need to say anything, because I’m going to do it anyway.”
        Great story, right? *rolls eyes*

  8. WoW they changed it a little in the Manhua I’m talking about the fight with the Sword Saint.
    In the fight there was a scene I remember when Yun Che and Xia Qingyue used an attack combined with Ice Lotus and Phoenix Lotus to defend again one of his attacks.
    But here when the Sword Saint attacked Xia Qingyue, Yun Che forced him to stop his attack on her to defend against him xD
    Thought I cold have remembered wrong it was long ago but I am sure there was a combined Fire and Ice Lotus somewhere 0,o
    But I see the almost kiss scene and then getting send to the wall head first was left like like that xD

      1. Yeah there is but I can’t find it anymore even before the LN had been started to be translated I read the manhua.
        IDK why I can’t find it maybe the name is wrong or something or the group translating the manhua deleted it all along I don’t really know T_T

        When I started reading the LN I was like ok I have read this before but I could not remember where and I’m sure I didn’t read the LN before then.
        Than after the jumping of the cliff in the beginning it slowly was like deja vu after deja vu and I noticed I read the manhua of this and try find it again but I could not T_T
        Even jet they still didn’t get to the part at witch I stop reading the manhua.
        Though there are a lot of changed in the manhua I would say, to make the story flow faster I guess…

  9. What? Rapeche failed on a girl? Well that was a first.

    Joke aside, Qingyue is really a hard egg to crack. I am amazed that he was able to open her feeling up so much, despite how little they were able to be together. Yunche knew that he have a lot of works ahead of him if he wants to kiss her.
