Chapter 35 – Guilt

Hearing Xun Er’s words, Xiao Mei paused and weighed her thoughts carefully. If it was any other girl within the clan, Xiao Mei was confident that she could come out on top based on her beauty and talent, but towards Xun Er, Xiao Mei could only admit defeat.

Seeing that Xiao Yan’s face was impassive, Xiao Mei gave a self deprecating smile and could only leave in defeat.

The crowd within the training field stared at Xiao Yan who was being leaned on by Xun Er and they all felt twinges of jealousy. When had Xun Er, being the brightest pearl of the entire clan, been so close with another male?

Watching Xiao Mei awkwardly walking away, Xiao Yan was stunned and turning his head to see the smiling Xun Er, he taunted: “Girl, what are you doing?”

Xun Er still hung onto Xiao Yan’s arm as she glanced over at the staring crowd and innocently said: “Wasn’t Xiao Yan ge-ge about to reject her anyways?”

Hearing that, Xiao Yan rolled his eyes – the excuse he had in mind was completely different from what Xun Er implied with her excuse. Remembering the awkward expression on Xiao Mei’s face, Xiao Yan helplessly shook his head while thinking: Did Xun Er do that on purpose?

“It’s just that Xun Er doesn’t like how fast she changed. Haha, going to Dou Technique Hall to learn a Dou Technique together… she never invited you in the past three years.” Xun Er dragged Xiao Yan out of the training field slowly as she ignored the gazes around her. At the same time, she muttered words that only Xiao Yan could hear, looks like she really didn’t like how quickly Xiao Mei changed.

Lightly shrugging, Xiao Yan agreed with Xun Er with a bitter smile. Three years ago, Xiao Mei was quite close to him but when Xiao Yan received the title of “cripple”, he was able to see how “realistic” Xiao Mei was.

Watching Xiao Yan and Xun Er leave the field, Xiao Ning’s face twitched while his hands clenched so hard that bone cracking sounds could be heard. His jealousy even made his eyes slightly red.

“Brat, one month from now, I’ll break all of your teeth!” Xiao Ning spat the words out as he angrily left the training field.

On the high platform, Xiao Zhan was about to leave when he saw the scene and intently stared at Xun Er and Xiao Yan while a hint of worry flashed across his eyes. Yan Er, he… does he like Xun Er? Xun Er’s background… not even Nalan Yanran can compare to her. Even with genius level talent, it would be extremely difficult to be approved of by the power behind her.

After thinking for a while, Xiao Zhan let out a sigh as he slowly left.

….

While walking, Xiao Yan would suddenly blank out as he recalled what had just happened.

Turning a corner, Xun Er suddenly let go of Xiao Yan’s arm with a red face. Pushing out her cheeks, she stared at Xiao Yan accusingly.

Losing the momentum that was dragging him forward, Xiao Yan felt at a loss as to what to do and even sighed for no reason. His eyes moved to Xun Er as he thought about what Xun Er implied.

Feeling the blank stare of Xiao Yan, Xun Er small face flushed red as her hands instinctively raised up and she said: “Xiao Yan ge-ge, you…”

“Ahem…ahem…” Waking up from his stupor, Xiao Yan violently coughed while his face became an unhealthy red and he thought: When did I go so low, to think that towards my own sister?

Even though Xun Er and Xiao Yan didn’t have an actual blood relationship, they both lived with each other for over a decade and their relationship wasn’t much worse than that of a blood brother or sister. It wasn’t surprising that Xiao Yan had already thought of Xun Er as his little sister and felt guilt and repulsion towards himself when he realized what he was thinking about…

With that sudden realization, the atmosphere became quite awkward.

Xun Er lowered her head and her usual elegance had been replaced with a girl’s embarrassment. Occasionally, she tilted her gaze to peek at the side of Xiao Yan’s face who was looking straight forward.

Under the awkward atmosphere, the not very long path felt like a great conquest that took forever to get to the end.

Of course, despite how long the conquest felt like, it had an end, where the path split in two directions. At here, Xiao Yan softly said bye and started fleeing.

“Xiao Yan ge-ge.”

Watching the panicked Xiao Yan, Xun Er was stunned by the sight before she called out.

“Huh?” Stopping, Xiao Yan looked back to see Xun Er standing beneath a willow and his heart started beating quickly again.

Xun Er had a green robe with a purple belt that fluttered in the wind. She and the willow behind her made a picture that didn’t seem earthly.

“Tomorrow… will you accompany Xun Er?”

Under the branches of the willow, the girl’s delicate face had a red flush as her jade teeth bit her pink lips. A pair of beautiful eyes were watching Xiao Yan with a hint of anticipation…

    1. Yup, just a description – the actual translation also correlates to pearly teeth but it’d be weird to associate teeth with something round? Idk, I guess jade is often given a green association when it’s actual more white…

      1. It’s interesting how different people think ^.^ For me it’s natural to think about colour when hearind “Pearly teeth”, and for you, rather than colour, you imagine the object, huh? 😛

        1. I don’t like the whole “pearly white” thing a lot of western europe has going on, because people go to insane lengths for as white as possible a smiley, it looks too unnatural.

          they only seem to stop just short of “glow in the dark” that happens if you leave the whitening agent in too long xD

      2. no not only in Usa even i who leave in tunisia think pearl is more adequate because the first think i think of is color thats why when i read jad teeth i imagined them green at first even if my mind tell me its white xD

        thx for the chapter 🙂

      3. There is such thing as white jade stones which really do look like a polished tooth in color/texture. My guess it that’s what its referring too.

          1. I Personaly Do Not Like ” Pearly “,
            As Actuall, Natural, White pearls Are Slightly Pink/Gold.
            Making That A Tooth Color, Ahm,
            That To See Sounds More Unique, Rather Then Beautiful.

            ‘ I Actually Noticed Just Now, That I Am , Licking My Teeth ‘

            White Jade However, Now That Is Tooth White.
            Sure If You Polish it To Much,
            It Would Naturally Have The Potential Of Becoming,
            UnNaturally White.

            I Think This Has To Do With The Transparency,
            Of The Teeth As Well As The Jade.
            Teeth Dispite What Most Think Isn’t A Solid Color.

            Thanks For The Translations !
            Take Care Everyone & Of Each other !

          2. ‘ I Actually Noticed Just Now, That I Am , Licking My Teeth ‘

            WTF GHOS7 me too u a wizard?

  1. Hah, it sure seems that we will get more ‘action’ here than in CD 😛 If y’all know what i mean 😀

    Thank you for chapter! Quality read before going to sleep ~~ 🙂

  2. “Xiao Yan would suddenly blanked out” -> “Xiao Yan suddenly blanked out” (“would” and “blanked” don’t go together, I’m guessing as to the correct conjugation based on the rest)

    “she tilted her gaze to peek at the side of Xiao Yan’s who was looking” -> “she tilted her gaze to peek at the side of Xiao Yan’s face who was looking” (I’m guessing as to the missing word)

    “Her and the willow behind her” -> “She and the willow behind her”

    “the girl’s delicate had a red flush” -> “the girl’s delicate face had a red flush” (again guessing)

    And thanks for the chapter!

  3. Xun Er is definitely breaking down Xiao Yan’s defenses ingeniously. I’m sure she’s entirely aware of what she’s doing. It’ll be fun to see the MC’s reaction once he figures that out.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  4. eh, can’t really understand why he sees her as his little sister, but I do hope they get together… would kinda not like it if they don’t

    and looking forward to him probably beating up Ning

  5. ty for the chapter ggp 🙂 and little sister, really? TT_TT poor xun, she has a bit of work ahead of her, though it seems shes already advancing in the right direction 😉

  6. “Brat, one month from now, I’ll break all of your teeth!” Xiao Ning spit the words out as he angrily left the training field.

    relationship might be better :hue:

    that sudden realization( quite a better fit IMO)
    This needs a http://cdn.meme.am/instances/500x/52903535.jpg alert at the top of the post 😉
    Please check out the corrections on the chapter before this one~

  7. Under the branches of the willow, the girl’s delicate face had a red flush as her jade teeth bit her pink lips. A pair of beautiful eyes were watching Xiao Yan with a hint of anticipation…

    This line makes it sound like she is trying to take a dump while staring at him. And with great anticipation…

    1. I think, Yan Realised Xun-Er’s Intentions.
      She, Wanting Yan For HerSelf.

      After Yan Feelt Her Intent,
      He Simply Turned Around, To Look At Xun.

      This Simply Made Him Think More Of Xun.
      Then just Simply A ” Sister ” Making Yan Blush.

      Xun Seeing Yan Blush, How Could She Stop,
      Herself From Doing The Same.

      Take Care Everyone & Of Each other

  8. Yep its official she has the hots for him. And its also official she has an immense position as part of something waay greater than the mere Jia Empire. Probably the massive Xiao sect or something like that. Ergo the same name.

    Thanks for the chapter.
