Chapter 423 – Leaving Phoenix Perching Valley

After a long while, Yun Che finally thought of the following storyline. He cleared his throat, and just as he was about to narrate, the Phoenix God Jade hung in front of her chest suddenly flickered with a scarlet-colored light.

Feng Xue’er took up the Phoenix God Jade, her expression, suddenly became somewhat sullen.

“Xue’er, what is it?” Yun Che immediately asked.

Feng Xue’er looked at Yun Che, and said with a pitiful expression in her eyes: “It’s royal father… He’s about to come here right now, then take me back to Phoenix City. Big Brother Yun…”

“…Why is he taking you back right now? Your royal father making you stay here alone, wasn’t it because he’ll be busy with the matter of the Ranking Tournament and Primordial Profound Ark. But right now should be the time he’s the busiest.” Yun Che said somewhat puzzled.

Feng Xue’er lightly shook her head: “Royal father had said, this is the first Seven Nation Ranking Tournament ever since my birth, and he’ll take me there on-site. If I’m willing, he can even take me onto the Primordial Profound Ark. Royal father taking me back now, should be because all of the affairs have been properly prepared.”

“You will go… to the site of the Ranking Tournament?” Yun Che’s heart slightly shook.

“Mn… Big Brother Yun, quickly leave this place. If royal father sees you here, it’ll be… it’ll be bad.” Feng Xue’er stood up, her expression somewhat panicky. She grabbed Yun Che’s arm, but didn’t push him away, rather, unwittingly gripped tighter.

There were three days left from the start of the Ranking Tournament; in fact, he should’ve left a long time ago. The reason as to why he hadn’t yet left, he knew very well in his heart… It was because he wasn’t willing to part with Feng Xue’er. Her features, voice, heart, every single look, every single expression in her eyes, were all firmly attracting him, making it as if he were sucked into an endlessly beautiful starry sky, sinking deeper and deeper within.

In this world, no one can withstand her charm… And Yun Che, due to an accident stemming from many causes, with extraordinary luck, became the first person who could make close range contact with her.

“It’s indeed time for me to leave.” Yun Che exclaimed in his heart. Attentively watching Feng Xue’er’s eyes flickering with light, he lifted his hand, put it atop Xue’er’s head, as his fingers slowly slid off along the contour of her hair… This unduly intimate action, caused Feng Xue’er’s eyes to only tremble a bit. But, she did not show any signs of rejection: “Xue’er, these days, I will always remember. Thank you, and thank the heavens for letting me meet you.”

“…Big Brother Yun’s words are so weird.” Feng Xur’er minted her charming lips: “Later, we will still meet again, isn’t that right?”

“Of course.” Yun Che smilingly nodded: “Because I’ve already promised to take Xue’er to see the endlessly flowing snow. My promise to Xue’er, will never be forgotten.”

“Mn!” Feng Xue’er nodded, her expression finally becoming somewhat cheerful. Her eyes carried unwillingness to part, yet her hands were gently pushing Yun Che: “Even though, I really hate to part with Big Brother Yun, it really is time for Big Brother Yun to leave… Royal father will arrive here in less than a quarter of an hour. If you still don’t leave, you’ll really be discovered by royal father.”

“…I’m going.” Yun Che’s hand moved away from Feng Xue’er’s shoulders. After glancing at her with incredible meticulousness, he finally turned around, then called over the Snow Phoenix Beast.

Snow Phoenix Beast flew up to him, and just as he was about to hop onto Snow Phoenix Beast’s back, Yun Che stopped in his steps. He turned around, his hands quietly clutched tight, and at last he still said in a small voice: “Xue’er, if… let’s say if one day, you found out… I have lied to you about some things, will you hate me? Will you still consider me your Big Brother Yun?”

“Ah?” Yun Che’s sudden words, made Feng Xue’er a little at a loss: “Why would Big Brother Yun say such a weird thing? How is it possible for Big Brother Yun to deceive me?”

“I’m saying, just if… if there are some things, I really have deceived you on, would you hate me?” Yun Che’s voice became even quieter; a sentence that wasn’t lengthy, yet was spoken with extraordinary difficulty.

“I… I don’t know.” Feng Xue’er shook her head, the expression in her eyes was somewhat stumped, as if she couldn’t understand the question Yun Che had put forward. She lightly spoke: “But, in these days together with Big Brother Yun, what I have felt are all Big Brother Yun’s kindness toward me. Snowing for me every day, teaching me how to build snowmen, cooking delicious food for me, telling me many interesting stories… Big Brother Yun’s smile is pretty, and his gaze is also very gentle. These days, I’ve been so happy every day, even the dreams I dream when sleeping, had become very blissful.”

Yun Che: “…”

“This kind of Big Brother Yun, I don’t believe he would be willing to deceive me. Even if… even if he really deceived me, then he must’ve had no other choice, and not in order to harm me.” Every single word of Feng Xue’er, was sincere and relaxed; this was the voice coming from her heart: “I will forever remember Big Brother Yun’s kindness, and the matter he promised me… In the future, no matter what happens, I believe that Big Brother Yun will never harm me, and I’ll never do anything that’ll harm Big Brother Yun either.”

The last sentence of Feng Xue’er, made Yun Che somewhat puzzled. But even more so, it fiercely stirred up his heart. He no longer spoke, because no matter what he said under Feng Xue’er’s gaze that was as pure as snow, it would be incomparably pale in comparison. He leapt onto the Snow Phoenix Beast’s back, took off into the air under Snow Phoenix Beast’s carriage, and directly flew toward Absolute Phoenix Cliff. Feng Xue’er had already told him, that the other three directions of Phoenix Perching Valley all should have people guarding there. If he were to safely leave without alarming anyone, he would still need to go through Absolute Phoenix Cliff.

“Big Brother Yun, I’ll come here often in the future… I will wait for Big Brother Yun to appear once again…”

“Big Brother Yun, you can’t forget the words said between us. After I’m twenty, you definitely have to take me to Snow Region of Extreme Ice…”

“Big Brother Yun, Little White, I’ll miss you guys very much…”

The sound of wind howled beside his ears. Feng Xue’er’s voice came from below against the wind; the voice at last, even carried a sobbing tone that was being repressed with effort.

A few thousand meters in height, wasn’t much for Snow Phoenix Beast. Very soon, Absolute Phoenix Cliff’s summit appeared before Yun Che’s eyes. Yun Che dismounted from Snow Phoenix Beast’s back, and stood beside the cliff. Within the dark green colored valley that was like an otherworldly utopia, he could faintly see that fairy-like beautiful silhouette.

She was the princess of Divine Phoenix Empire, the most brilliant jewel of the entire Profound Sky Continent. She had been protected to the utmost limit… But at the same time, she was also lonely… Which was why, in these days he had carelessly intruded into her world, she was so happy and excited.

“Little Chan, do you want to accompany her, by her side?” With his gaze looking down, Yun Che suddenly spoke.

“Screee…” Snow Phoenix Beast slapped her wings, and let out a quiet cry. Its majestic head continuously made a few… nodding movements!

Huh? Nodding!?

With an extremely bitter and unsatisfied expression in his eyes, Yun Che gave Snow Phoenix Beast a fierce stare… Even if Xue’er’s charm can’t be resisted, even if you really want to stay by her side, you are still my contracted profound beast right nowwwww!!! Can’t you be a little bit more reserved, even if you have to fake it a little!

…Forget it.

Yun Che’s mouth became askew. He extended his wrist, as the Snow Phoenix Beast’s profound imprint emerged on the back. With a thought, the profound energy connection with Snow Phoenix Beast was directly severed. The profound imprint on the back of his hand, also slowly vanished.

Snow Phoenix Beast completely recovered its freedom. It spread its wings and took off, and circled and danced above Yun Che’s head, letting out sharp cries that one couldn’t tell whether it was from excitement or unwillingness to part.

Seeing the Snow Phoenix Beast that regained freedom, what was more in Yun Che’s heart wasn’t sadness, but a sort of relaxed feeling. He said with a faint smile: “Little Chan, go ahead. Staying with me, you will only face hardships and danger everywhere. Accompanying Xue’er, she likes you so much, and will definitely treat you well. You no longer need to suffer laborious hardship with me anymore… Go.”

Scree~~~~

A long cry resonantly sliced through the skies. After Snow Phoenix Beast danced and fluttered for a while, it finally descended, and flew toward the Phoenix Perching Valley below. Very soon, those two snow-white colored silhouettes slowly assembled together.

Yun Che let out a faint laugh. After taking another deep glance in the end, he took two steps back, then put away all of his unwillingness to part, and walked toward the south.

“Why did you let Snow Phoenix Beast leave?” Jasmine couldn’t help but ask: “You still can’t fly right now. Without Snow Phoenix Beast, what will you do when you need to fly?”

Yun Che shook his head, and said: “Giving the Snow Phoenix Beast to Xue’er, isn’t just because Xue’er likes it. It is because that I don’t know whether or not I can successfully preserve my own life during this session of Ranking Tournament. If I am unlucky… At least Snow Phoenix Beast doesn’t need to die together with me. Not only can it be saved, it can be considered a tiny bit of repayment to Xue’er… Her heart was sincere toward me, yet I, still have deceived her after all that’s said and done.”

“Hmph…” Jasmine sneered: “Deceiving girls, isn’t that your habitual method of doing things! You had never been so conscious of your guilt before, isn’t that so.”

“That’s not the same.” Yun Che curled his lips: “Conquering and deception are two entirely different concepts, a little girl like you wouldn’t understand.”

“…” Jasmine was disdained to reply, and asked conversely: “On the matter of whether or not you can keep your life, I actually have good news to tell you.”

“Good news?”

Jasmine said indifferently: “If I’m guessing correctly, after your Phoenix bloodline was found out by Divine Phoenix Sect, what you dread the most isn’t Divine Phoenix Sect, but the true progenitor of Divine Phoenix Sect… the other Phoenix Spirit, just like the Phoenix Spirit you met at the Ten Thousand Beast Mountain Range back then.”

Yun Che’s footsteps stalled a little, then he slowly nodded: “You are entirely correct. Back then, when I left the Phoenix’s trial grounds, the Phoenix Spirit had also warned severely, that I must be cautious of the other Phoenix Spirit’s existence. Divine Phoenix Sect’s Phoenix Spirit had always thought the Phoenix Spirit who granted me heritage was killed by it a long time ago. If it found out that the Phoenix’s bloodline in me stems from another Phoenix’s legacy… Then, the one who will be harmed, will not only be myself. The Phoenix Spirit of the Ten Thousand Beast Mountain Range, as well as the Phoenix tribe who just recently broke away from their curse, may also encounter a great disaster.” Yun Che uttered a low sigh: “Yet with the bloodline’s exposure, there would be no other choice but to face Divine Phoenix Sect as soon as possible. Otherwise, the ones who will be implicated would be people at my side… So, on the way here from the Blue Wind Nation, I had always prayed for that phoenix beast to always be residing in the dark, and won’t have any interest to probe into affairs of the Ranking Tournament.

“About this Phoenix Spirit, there’s already no need for you to worry.” Jasmine said emotionlessly.

“Why?”

“Because… it’s already dead!”

“What? Dead?” Yun Che’s footsteps stopped at once: “Are you sure? Wait! How did you know it’s dead?”

“Heh…” Jasmine laughed insidiously: “You don’t need to mind how I found out. It shouldn’t be too long since its death, but I am certain that it has already died! However, even though it died, there’s a high chance that the bloodline and memories have been passed on. So, in this world, there are perhaps still people who can discern that your bloodline comes from another Phoenix’s legacy.”

Yun Che’s spirit was instantly roused up. Words spoken by Jasmine in such a confidence tone, naturally he wouldn’t doubt them: “Very well! If Divine Phoenix Sect’s Phoenix Spirit really has died, then, my greatest worry is also gone! Like this, during the Ranking Tournament, I will be able to perform without any worries of future consequences!”

“And so? How confident are you to make Divine Phoenix Sect no longer find trouble for you, and also survive?”

“Seventy percent!” Yun Che said with swelling confidence: “Perhaps, I’d even be able to go for a stroll on that mysterious Primordial Profound Ark!”

  1. bunny . . . . bunny . . . . . . BUNNY

    . . . . . I don’t care if you repeat something else. GET THAT stupid BUNNY OUT OF THAT PAGE .

    . . . . Thanks for the chappy 🙂

    1. yeah it’s kinda lost it’s meaning, before i would always look at the preview pic, now though it’s becoming a “meh” if i want to look or not

    1. the merchant people (major brain fart right now on the name), he’s paying them for info on her, besides she’s already left her home country so its doubtful little chan will be able to pick up the trail so easy

      1. But Chu Yueli had said that since Little Chan was Little Fairy’s former contracted beast, it should be able to track down her energy. I was always waiting for Yun Che to try this but maybe the author forgot this little detail.

        1. She said it could identify it, not track it. Keeping the Phoenix beast around would probably only kill it so it’s best to let it go.

  2. in my opinion i think it has something to do with the princess….the whole phoenix thing…perhaps she somehow or another inherited its soul, bloodline or w/e…..thats the only thing i can think of that makes the emperor safeguard her so much, also the fact that jasmine just happens to mention it after leaving her….then again all just speculations. =P

    1. Totally on the same train of thought. but how the heck does it pass it bloodline on anyway? it just a thought construct at worst or a part of the phoenix soul as best. Also the princess must have the potential to grow insanly strong. At least be able to beat her father to a pulp with 1 hand. Otherwise them pervert brother of her is gonna tear her to pieces.

  3. Thank you for translation!!! And yayyyy flower bridge too coming in clutch!!!! (: trying to get in contact with him how do I go about this?!? D:

  4. thanks for the chapter. i actually don’t like the idea of giving away the snow phoenix cuz its supposed to be the only thing that reminds you of yuechan and is supposed to be their connection to eachother but you give it to another girl. Thats just wrong.

    1. My thoughts exactly. The snow phoenix was supposed to be returned to Yeuchan, and he gave it away to some girl just cause she liked it? I am disgusted.

      1. Eh? he did not gave her just cause she liked it but like explained in chapter to also to save that snow eagle life from what we have seen so far he did gone through life and death situation staying with him many times. Now he is going to most dangerous place and won’t have capacity to guard other people. Yuechan already served the connection between the beast and with merchant help making whole thing using it to find her makes it useless.

  5. Thanks for the chapter! wow that’s some pretty shitty loyalty from Little Chan just forgets all about Chu Yuechan that raised it from young and was it’s original master for it’s entire life that’s wack.

  6. So time to beat up all the sons of Phoenix Clan, steal all their loot
    Obtain whats in the Ark, make Princess his next wife and be Swag in general i guess

  7. Thanks for the translation!!

    So let me guess… Snow Princess is actually the reincarnated Phoenix Sect’s Phoenix Spirit… Yay… Information dump…

  8. Sureeee.. Give away the phoenix that doesnt even belong to you. Give away the phoenix that was entrusted to you to give to your missing wife which was also at the same time one of the alternative to find her. “He gave it away cause it might die with him if he dies”… Yup.. When he decided to wipe out burning heaven sect , it wasnt dangerous at all. When he almost died recently,it wasnt dangerous at all. Only now when he saw princess snow, as his head blank out and started thinking with his other head that he decides maybe his decisions will lead to danger.

    1. You do know you sound like a idiot. The burning heaven clan was nothing. The Devin Phoenix sect is the strongest of the 7 nations.. He gave away the bird because he has a high chance of dying also his Little fairy left the bird at frozen Asgard.. the only reason he got the bird was so he had a chance of finding little fairy yet Little fairy is obvious not in Blue wind Empire .. He now has the Black Moon merchant guild Looking for his little Fairy and his Brother … He has no need for the bird and it pains him that he has made Little Chan(Little white almost die twice) he would die if that bird died cause it was one of his only Memories of little Fairy.. so passing it on is a good idea because in The princes hands Little white wont die.

  9. “Little Chan, do you want to accompany her, by her side?” With his gaze looking down, Yun Che suddenly spoke.

    “Screee…” Snow Phoenix Beast slapped her wings, and let out a quiet cry. Its majestic head continuously made a few… nodding movements!

    Huh? Nodding!?

    With an extremely bitter and unsatisfied expression in his eyes, Yun Che gave Snow Phoenix Beast a fierce stare… Even if Xue’er’s charm can’t be resisted, even if you really want to stay by her side, you are still my contracted profound beast right nowwwww!!! Can’t you be a little bit more reserved, even if you have to fake it a little!

    Hehe, I really loved this part. Seems like yun che got NTR’d(kind of).
