Chapter 39 Skill Storing, Silver Emperor (2)

After receiving the Gold Coins Storage Card, Zhou Weiqing couldn’t help but reveal some of the excitement he had been feeling. After thanking the pair of middle aged men, he quickly exited the Skill Storing Palace.

Standing at the entrance of the Skill Storing Palace, he truly wanted to burst into maniacal laughter. I, Your Father, am a rich man! 450,000 gold coins! Being a Consolidating Equipment Master is indeed a great profession! Bing’er, in the future, if you want to Skill Store anything, I can even dump a few hundred thousand and let you try your heart out!

“Don’t block the way, move aside.” Just as Zhou Weiqing stood there with a foolish grin on his face, a sudden cold, clear voice sounded out in front of him, breaking him out of his reverie. It was only at that point that he realised he was standing right in the middle of the entrance of the Skill Storing Palace, blocking the route. However, the Skill Storing Palace entrance was actually very huge, and there was more than enough space to walk past him.

There were two people standing in of him, a man and a woman, and the one who had spoken was the woman. She had her arms linked to the youth beside her, her face proud, and the fiery red long dress accentuating her enchanting figure, with her fine features proving to be very attractive, framed by the head of long red hair which fell to her shoulders. The only thing that marred her face slightly was the look of disdain and the prideful air around her brows.

The youth standing beside the red-dressed young lady was clothed in a suit of black, with only a sparse few golden lines adorning the sides, giving the impression of a low profile yet high class look. His head of short dark blue hair was neat and clean cut, with a high nose, brilliant blue eyes which seemed warm. Currently, his brow was furrowed as he heard the young lady’s words.

His bearing and aura was far above what the young lady displayed, and even though he seemed only slightly over twenty years of age, he seemed to possess a natural grace and poise beyond his years.

Zhou Weiqing did not want to cause trouble, and he knew that it had been wrong of him to stand right in the middle of the entrance for so long. However, when he saw the young lady, his steps halted, a cold light appearing in his eyes. Indeed, he knew this young lady in the red dress!

“You uncouth bumpkin, what are you staring at, move out of the way!” The young lady cried out once more in anger. If not for the black clad youth beside her, perhaps her words would be even more venomous.

Zhou Weiqing laughed, a simple good-natured laugh. “My dear fiancée, it’s been a long time! We still haven’t dissolved our engagement yet, and you’ve already found a new target? Very good, very good.”

Clearly, the young lady holding onto the black clad youth was the Princess of the Heavenly Bow Empire, Zhou Weiqing’s fiancée, Princess Difuya.

After two years, Difuya looked even more beautiful than before. At the age of 19, she was at the prime of her youth and beauty. Alas, no matter how beautiful she was, in Zhou Weiqing’s eyes she was unbelievably ugly. Thinking back to how he almost died in her hands, and looking at how she held another man’s hand, Zhou Weiqing’s hands curled into a fist subconsciously. Although he was looking to dissolve the engagement, she was still currently his fiancée, only to see her holding another man’s hand so intimately. Such a circumstance, any man would not be able to take it.

Hearing Zhou Weiqing’s words, Difuya’s body shuddered as a look of disbelief entered her eyes. After more than two years, the change in Zhou Weiqing’s look was considerable; just the change in his stature alone was rather unbelievable. That, in addition to his shabby and travel worn look, as well as Difuya not expecting to see him here, had caused her not to recognize him. After taking a closer look, she realised who he was.

“You… What are you doing here?” She asked, a look of embarrassment on her face, before a flash of worry entered her eyes. Of course, the worry was not for Zhou Weiqing.

“Fiancée?” The black clad youth said, with a strange tinge of amusement in his voice, as he turned to look pointedly at Difuya.

Difuya was instantly at a loss: “Brother Yu, don’t misunderstand, I have nothing to do with him. He is only a useless son of a high ranking official, and our engagement is only because of my father’s orders. I’ve always been trying to dissolve the engagement.”

The black clad youth skillfully extracted his arm from Difuya’s arms, giving a graceful smile as he said: “That’s your issue with him, but you should know my character. I do not want my women to have any implications with other men. Princess Difuya, our relationship ends now. 1

As if he had just done something inconsequential, the black clad youth walked off into the Skill Storing Palace, not caring about Difuya who was standing there stunned. As he passed by Zhou Weiqing, he smiled and said: “Little bro, not bad, you’re in luck! Don’t worry, I haven’t touched Difuya yet, she’s still a virgin.”

“Virgin your younger sister.2” Zhou Weiqing retorted passively, standing still without moving.

The black clad youth’s calm and elegant smile froze in that instant, and his voice turned ice cold as if filled with killing intent. “What did you say?”

In that moment, Zhou Weiqing felt as if he was trapped in the midst of a sea of blood and corpses. That killing intent was rather familiar to him, as he had once sensed a similar aura from his father. Even still, when he turned towards the black clad youth, he had a bright and naive smile on his face, his voice crisp and clear as he said pronouncedly: “Virgin – your – sister.”

Their two gazes met in midair, clashing as if lightning was crackling between the two of them. All of a sudden, the black clad youth’s right hand lashed out in a blur, heading towards Zhou Weiqing’s face. At the same time, Zhou Weiqing lifted his right hand.

*PAA!* A loud explosive sound rang out, seemingly causing a detonation in the very air. Difuya, who was just standing a few yards away, was actually knocked a few steps back by the shockwave, almost falling off the steps.

Zhou Weiqing was also forced back two steps before he regained his balance, but the black clad youth only wavered a bit, his shoulder trembling slightly as it absorbed the blow, and only taking a half step backwards before regaining his balance.

Zhou Weiqing’s eyes narrowed, a fierce light springing forth in them, as if a ferocious beast was hidden within, ready to pounce at any time. As for the black clad youth, there was a hint of surprise on his face. Earlier, he had not used much strength, but this fellow in front of him, who definitely looked much younger than him, had unexpectedly been able to take the blow, even causing him to take half a step back. Such a strength was definitely beyond what he had anticipated.

This man definitely has a much higher cultivation level of Heavenly Energy than me! Zhou Weiqing instantly determined. After all, his Physical Jewel was a pure Strength boost, and coupled with the black pearl, his strength far surpassed that of any ordinary Heavenly Jewel Master. Under such a circumstance, he had lost the contest of strength, that could only mean that the youth was definitely of a much higher cultivation level.

Without skipping a bit, Zhou Weiqing stepped forward with his left leg, his right fist flying forth brazenly. At the same time, the twelve energy whirlpools at the Death Acupuncture Points started spinning at maximum capacity, and a white light enveloped his fist as it sped towards the youth.

The black clad youth did not retreat, lifting his fist as well, and white light enveloped it as he too punched forward. However, the white light around his fist was a lot thicker and more solid than Zhou Weiqing’s.

Just as their fists were about to meet, the black clad youth suddenly sensed something amiss. Right in the next instant, Zhou Weiqing suddenly disappeared from in front of him

Five brightly glowing glass-looking Elemental Jewels as well as five similar Icy Jade Physical Jewels appeared at the same time around the black clad youth’s wrists. As his 3rd Elemental Jewel flashed in a blinding brilliance, a layer of white light enveloped him. Right at the same time, an explosion sounded out behind him.

The black clad youth staggered a step forward, his body shuddering with the impact, before he took yet another step forward. The shield of white light seemed to give forth a sound like that of glass shattering, and by then he had already spun around, looking with surprise at Zhou Weiqing who had appeared behind his back. At this time, Zhou Weiqing had also been knocked backwards by the sudden appearance of the white shield of light.

“Blink! You’re a Spatial Attribute Heavenly Jewel Master.” The black clad youth’s look at Zhou Weiqing had obviously changed. His surprise was of course not because of Zhou Weiqing’s status of Heavenly Jewel Master or that he had the Spatial Attribute, but rather that he had the Blink skill. After all, in the Fei Li Empire, Heavenly Jewel Masters were definitely not as rare as in the Heavenly Bow Empire, and there were also a few Spatial Attribute Upper Level Heavenly Jewel Masters. However, even among them, those who actually had the Blink skill was extremely limited. This was further emphasised by the fact that Zhou Weiqing was so young! In the world of Heavenly Jewel Masters, the cultivation level of Heavenly Energy and number of Heavenly Jewels were the mainstay on how to judge the power of a Heavenly Jewel Master, but the type of skills were also extremely important. At times, perhaps even more important than cultivation level. After all, a Heavenly Jewel Master with high rating skills could easily defeat those of the same cultivation level, or perhaps even those of a little higher level.

Zhou Weiqing eyed his opponent, feeling just as stunned in his heart. Light Attribute, Protection of Light Skill, Strength Physical Jewel! A 5 Jeweled Mid level Zun Stage Heavenly Jewel Master!

The black clad youth in front of him barely looked about 26 to 27 years of age, and yet his cultivation level had already reached the Mid Level Heavenly Zun Stage! Zhou Weiqing knew that even his father had not reached such a level at such an age.

In the short amount of time that they had exchanged blows, more than ten of the golden armored guards of the Skill Storing Palace had surrounded them. “Honoured Jewel Masters, please do not cause a disturbance at the Skill Storing Palace.”

The black clad youth nodded to Zhou Weiqing, saying: “My name is Ming Yu. I believe we will meet again. I will remember your insult to my younger sister.” After saying that, he turned and headed into the Skill Storing Palace.

Zhou Weiqing gave a cold humph, not wanting to let him have the last word, saying: “My name is Zhou Weiqing. Insult your younger sister? Hmph, be careful that you don’t become my brother in law.”

Ming Yu, who had almost entered the Skill Storing Palace by then, almost stumbled and fell upon hearing those words. By the time he had turned around, Zhou Weiqing had already walked off, not even turning to look at Difuya. Without knowing why, Ming Yu felt a strange sense of laughter bubbling up. It had been a long time since a young kid has dared to speak like that to me. That little fellow is indeed rather strange and interesting. However, his cultivation level is indeed terrifying; I doubt he is even twenty years of age, yet being able to manipulate his Heavenly Energy out of his body, he is definitely of the Heavenly Shen Energy Stage. Although he probably just entered the stage, it was still an impressive feat. Furthermore, it seems his strength is rather out of the ordinary. Zhou Weiqing… hmm… we will meet soon.

  1. Damn, is it bad of me if I danced with joy here?
  2. Basically, xx 你妹 (or xx your younger sister), where xx can be any subject, is a slang that the chinese use to convey derision, usually similar to how we use xx Your Ass in english, and can only be considered a very mild insult at best. The reason I chose to do a direct translation is because the youth actually chooses to treat it literally later as well

    1. Haha. This particular chapter unexpectedly had so many debates. Enjoyed reading the chapter and those opinions. 🙂 gotta make the first comment as a stepping stone for some attention.

      Thanks for the chapter 🙂

          1. Would it be good if some accidents happen to the princess and by chance MC is around and save her life, and she’ll be madly in love with Zhou and even beg for his forgiveness…

      1. Not all of us. I mean, it was wrong to force her into that marriage in the first place, and Little Fatty also had a relationship with another woman while being engaged to her.

        Only that idiot king is pissing me off…

        Though I do think her arrogance needs to be toned down a notch… she looks down on too many people…. if it was only Fatty, I could forgive her….

        1. I didn’t like the marriage either, but her attitude pisses me off. if not for the sake of plot armor the MC would’ve been dead before the story started.

        2. log in just to refute you and maybe have some fun debate, first of all
          she was forced into this marriage, but it wasn’t fatty’s fault and she almost killed him, not only that she just left him to die not even bothering to try to save him, not only that, she always were rude to him calling him trash. and 2nd of all, they are allowed to have more than one wife,it’s wuxia after all, look at yun che from atg(if you read it) and beside, didn’t the king told her to seduce fatty? and not only that they are still engaged, how can she go out with another man if she didn’t even solved that problem?!

          1. and even after all that she wont be seen in a bad light
            she throwing herself at guys
            trashing the name of the mc
            trashing the admirals name+her own kingdom too
            shaming her father(she can get all the lovers she want but she doesnt give a shit about others and did that in the open)
            she could easily make the only 3 heaven jewel masters enemies of the country with her plain disrespect
            if the mc admiral and bing er were extremely haughty and arrogant people they would cut their relationship with that country because of the plain disrespect of the princess

          2. this entirely. it may not matter to the mc on an emotional level, but that is a HUGE hit on reputation. anyone who knows their situation could basically say ming yu(confident but seems to be an overall good person. was perfectly respectful until fatty brough family into it. so at worst just a, rightly, confident protective brother) was a wife stealer. neither of those two did anything wrong.

            her biggest problem with fatty was out of his control, and the dude was someone she was latching onto cuz of power. both of them, while not necessarily good people, did NOTHING to that b**ch and she risked both their reputations.

            she’s a b**ch, end of story. if she want’s a new lover she needs to explain the exact situation so he can be aware, and act accordingly. that way he can wait until things blow over and NOT end up disgraced by the thoughtless actions of a moron.

        3. he is first a king then a father
          of course he wants to get an extremely strong son-in-law who already is to him like a son
          if i had the responsibility of being a king i would do the same
          but still if i was the mc i would be incredible annoyed
          f*ck difuya
          oh and dmr i noticed something
          so far i found you protecting at least 4 arrogant “not being seen in a positive light” beautiful female characters(2 were horrible bitches)
          who in my opinion should be thrown out
          but like always he will definetly get her(she wont really change) and he will also get the sister of the guy +tigerqueen

          1. He is a king first, yes. But he should have proposed for his daughter to be 2nd wife at most or even a concubine. Proposing for his daughter to be first wife is pushing it too much, considering he knows about mc’s love with a better woman, and that the princess tried to kill mc.

        4. I totally agree. That idiot of a king deserves a beating.

          I just don’t get why Fatty would feel offended by her holding another man’s hand. She’s already negative in his affection meter. He could care less if she ended up in a brothel. And what’s more confusing is why is the other guy even letting her cling to him. He seems to be quite a decent and interesting person. And the princess is just plain crap. It makes no sense unless he’s actually the type to surround himself with women. *shrugs*

          Well, at least, there’s one more character I would like to get to know better. I just hope he’s not a jerk.

          1. about the mc
            im pretty sure its about face
            she doesnt need to like love or even respect him
            but disrespecting many people at the same time is something else

          2. “He could care less” could NOT care less means that his care for her is at lowest point. If you don’t add “not” then it means that he still cares however little it may be.

        5. You are not entirely wrong. But alas, author is making us dislike her so much that almost everyone hates her. She still has the same attribute even after she killed his fiancee. That is what we call as “being at the apex of being spoiled”. You are right, his father is so annoying. He doesnt even know her doughters character. He spoiled her so much that she is beyond salvation now…

          1. “She still has the same attribute even after she killed his fiancee”
            The word “Attitude” is written as A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E

        6. Would it be good if some accidents happen to the princess and by chance MC is around and save her life, and she’ll be madly in love with Zhou and even beg for his forgiveness…

    1. The way I see this chapter is a stupid and condescending bimbo who tried to kill her fiancee before have managed to get a new guy she liked, but she ruined it when she saw someone in the middle of the road, instead of saying “Excuse Me” she condescendingly told him to get the hell away from my way and discovered it was her fiancee and gotten dumped by the guy she liked when it was discovered she’s engaged.

      She wouldn’t have been dumped so miserably had she politely asked him to give some way. She would still be dumped, but she can explains her POV in leisure instead of being dumped in front of her fiancee XD

      PS: And to think Zhou Weiqing want to break his engagement and that she has some poor manners for a princess… Tch she’s just waiting for a miserable future. She could have better if she get rid of some of her bad habit (like looking down on others)

    1. he seems like the type that’d either have 1 girlfriend or just swap girlfriends so that he has a girlfriend.

      Of course he could just be a super arrogant noble so that mc can beat him up later when he targets his waifu

        1. my thoughts as well… in fact if anyone was overly arrogant and abrasive here it was the MC. ming yu or w.e was a perfect gentleman. polite, respectful, and composed. Virginity was a large thing in china for highstanding unmarried women. fatty just laid a huge insult onto his family, and he responded with justified anger and seemingly non-lethal even…. and even after that he took it much more lightly than most xianxia people, finding the brash kid amusing rather than plotting stupid revenge.

          go tell even the “kind” protags of other xianxia’s their sister was a whore, i won’t await your return. mc was way more deserving of scorn, and both he and ming yu look like saints compared to his waste of a fiance -_-.

          1. Most of the Mc don’t have sisters. But by their caracteirs, the most kind would probably just trash you away (it’s jut an insult, by itself it’s not so grave). The worsts may skin you alive, destroy what make you a man, your cultivation (if they univers of the story permit it) and maybe after all of this let you die.

      1. He immediately parted with Difuya the moment he heard she was Zhou’s fiancee. I dont think he is the type who will go for others’ girls… He is quite prideful i think.

    2. Don’t feel bad for her. She deserves everything she gets and more. Did you forget she tried to KILL the mc early in the story, and didn’t even stop to help as he was dying?

  1. “As if he had just done something inconsequential, the black clad youth walked off into the Skill Storing Palace, not caring about Difuya who was standing there stunned. As he passed by Zhou Weiqing, he smiled and said: “Little bro, not bad, you’re in luck! Don’t worry, I haven’t touched Difuya yet, she’s still a virgin.”

    ~Spontaneous Action.
    Hope they become friends! =]

    “Zhou Weiqing gave a cold humph, not wanting to let him have the last word, saying: “My name is Zhou Weiqing. Insult your younger sister? Hmph, be careful that you don’t become my brother in law.”
    ~Bets on this actually happening?

    1. I can see them becoming the best of friends actually. Difuya’s suffering must continue, until the engagement is off, then I won’t care about her at all.

      1. unfortunately since this is a harem she will probably be forgiven and fall in with the other girls. as for the “other girls” containing ming yu’s sister, i hope so. dude seems like a good guy, nice brother-in-law for the mc.

        hope i’m wrong about difuya…. but considering who her father is, it’s rather unlikely there will be a lot of hostility towards her, and in her position with the mc (fiance/judgemental antagonist) her most likely turnout are disgraced and/or murdered by the mc, and ending up in the harem. former is likely sealed off by his godfather, so the latter shoots up in likelihood

  2. Goodbye, sl*t! HAHAHAHA!!
    But I wanted to see her suffer more. Which I’m sure will be granted. Perhaps…maybe… >.<

    I hope Fatty reunites with Bing'er soon. (not going to check the teaser)

    Thanks for the chapt~ ( *• ̀ω•́ )b

    1. Yeah, that was so refreshing… Lol 🙂 But she must suffer more of course. Our Little Fatty even angered his former assassination team so that they chased him out. That spoiled Difuya? She still doesnt know what real suffering means… I bet, she will be angered to the point that she will regret what she’s done 100 times over.

      1. Just remembering that chapter makes me laugh out loud. I hope Fatty concocts a plan to drive her crazy too.

        I’m not gonna read the teaser. I’ll endure…………….*stops right hand from clicking link*

  3. Thanks for the chapter!

    Oh, I like Ming Yu. He seems like a pretty interesting guy. I especially like how he cut her off immediately once he found out she had a fiancée.

  4. Zhou Weiqing gave a cold humph, not wanting to let him have the last word, saying: “My name is Zhou Weiqing. Insult your younger sister? Hmph, be careful that you don’t become my brother in law.” gotta love Weiqing lmfao, i love how he didn’t even look at the b*tch, and the Ming Yu guy doesn’t seems like a badguy i love how he didn’t give a f*ck about her anymore…

  5. Thanks a lot. I love this chap.

    And while I feel for Difuya in a certain way because she didn’t want the wedding and it was impose on her and little fatty. I totally agree that she had it coming with her atitude, had she been more truthful, and kinder thing would probably not be so bad for her. and the king his a dumass for not seeing all that.

    Ming wu bro in the futur…. interesting. Want more!!!

    1. I have to admit there is double standard treatment for Difuyu and Fatty Zhou, when Zhou mention to the king (Difuyu’s old man) he got a sweetheart outside, the King was like no biggie, telling Zhou that he can marry both Difuyu and his sweetheart, if Zhou really complain to the king about Difuyu’s liaison, you can bet the king will really flip the table.

  6. Sigh, this writer has some serious issues. All that sexism and degenerate attitude towards women. It’s not only in this story, I notice this is a returning theme in this kind of stories. Of course western comics have the same issue but it’s gotten better the last couple of years.
    Also, the author has written some serious bullshit when he said our MC got two years of “training” in regards to society. The dude just created a competitor and in worst case an enemy because of that bitch. Fcking retard.
