Chapter 76 Shangguan Xue’er (2)

Zhou Weiqing could clearly feel that Shangguan Bing’er’s heartbeat was still very erratic; showing how much turmoil her heart was in.

The fourth level of the Consolidating Equipment Pavilion was very quiet. Normally, there weren’t many customers, and at this time, no one came to disturb them. Zhou Weiqing and Shangguan Bing’er stood there for almost an hour without seeing anyone pass.

As the time came by, Shangguan Bing’er slowly calmed down. She knew that what Zhou Weiqing said was right, no matter what happened between her parents, as their daughter, she would have to try her best to help them.

All of a sudden, two bright white lights flashed up like a bolt of lightning striking from below, and the two of them felt a flash before their eyes as two people appeared abruptly before them.

One of them was naturally Shangguan Xue’er, her hand held by the other person. It was a man, looking around thirty years of age, dressed in a plain long white robe. A head of black hair neatly combed behind his head, and his handsome features were enough to cause Zhou Weiqing to have a bout of envy. This man gave Zhou Weiqing a sense of familiarity, as if he had seen him somewhere before.

The middle aged man was clearly emotionally agitated, his white robe seeming to reflect his feelings as it rippled in massive waves. He felt as if he was an ordinary person, not giving forth any aura or signs of power, but that somehow gave Zhou Weiqing an even scarier feeling.

“You… you’re Bing’er?” The middle aged man’s voice was quavering as he spoke, and Zhou Weiqing could clearly see that his lips were also quivering as he stared at Shangguan Bing’er, who was in Zhou Weiqing’s arms. His eyes were red, as if the tears within were brimming and on the verge of falling out.

Shangguan Bing’er seemed to sense something, and stood up from Zhou Weiqing’s embrace, staring blankly at the middle aged man as she said softly: “Yes, I … I am Shangguan Bing’er.”

“Bing’er, Bing’er, my daughter!” The middle aged man abruptly took a step forward, enveloping Shangguan Bing’er in his embrace as tears streamed down his cheeks.

As soon as he started crying, Zhou Weiqing was startled to find that the entire atmosphere seemed to be filled with a sorrowful air, as if thousands of people were gathered there solemnly sorrowful. His own body felt as if it was being affected by the atmosphere, moving his emotions as well, and he almost teared as well.

What kind of power was that? Was that even in the realms of human possibility? Zhou Weiqing stared at the middle aged man. At the same time, he could sense Fat Cat squirming deeper into his embrace, as if trying to hide, and could sense its terror.

Shangguan Xue’er, who was standing behind the man, was also crying, her eyes blood red.

“Let… let go of me.” Shangguan Bing’er protested softly. Before this middle aged man, she had only been hugged by another man, Zhou Weiqing, and she was not used to being in a stranger’s embrace.

The middle aged man stiffened, slowly releasing his arms as he looked at Shangguan Bing’er agitatedly. “Bing’er, I am your Father, I am your Father! Did your mother ever tell you that your father’s name is Shangguan Tianyue. I was wrong, all of it, it is all my fault. Years ago, I let down your mother! Quick, tell me, where is your mother staying? I have been looking for you both for nineteen years!”

Hearing the words Shangguan Tianyue, comprehension suddenly dawned upon Zhou Weiqing. He finally understood why the middle aged man in front of him looked so familiar. His looks were very similar to the ZhongTian Emperor, Shangguan Tianxin! No, it could be said to be almost exactly the same, but that day they had been just too far from the VIP stage in the plaza, and Shangguan Tianxin had been wearing a dragon robe, which looked so different from the one Shangguan Tianyue was wearing now, and he had not recognized him right away.

Without question, this Shangguan Tianyue and Shangguan Tianxin were related, perhaps even brothers… does that mean my Bing’er is actually a princess? And… a princess of the ZhongTian Empire!?

Shangguan Bing’er took a step back, leaning onto Zhou Weiqing as she stared at Shangguan Tianyue in front of her, her eyes filled with a confused, complicated look as tears streamed down from them. Logic told her that this was indeed her father, but she somehow couldn’t call out the word ‘Father’.

Shangguan Tianyue ignored Zhou Weiqing, as if he were air, instead asking urgently: “Bing’er, I’ve finally found you. How about your mother? Did she come as well? Is she finally willing to forgive me?”

Right at that moment, a dozen or so people rushed up and down the stairs, reaching them before kneeling at a distance, saying respectfully: “Greetings, Second Palace Master.” Amongst them was the first level manager they had seen earlier, Wu Wenjie.

Shangguan Tianyue furrowed his brow, a little irritated at the interruption. “Please, get up, we do not need you here. Carry on.”

The dozen or so powerhouses who were clearly the managers of the Consolidating Equipment Pavilion vanished quickly.

Shangguan Tianyue took in a deep breath, forcing himself to calm down as he turned back to Shangguan Bing’er, who was still staring dazedly as she cried. In a gentle tone, he said: “Bing’er, this isn’t the place to talk, come back home with father? We can talk when we’re home, okay?”

As he said that, he lifted his hand to pull on Shangguan Bing’er, but she was like a startled little bird, and in a flash she had moved behind Zhou Weiqing.

“Senior, please calm down, do not scare Bing’er.” Zhou Weiqing quickly moved his body to shelter Shangguan Bing’er behind her. Although he knew that his cultivation level was likely impossibly far from this father-in-law-to-be of his, he still stood in front of Shangguan Bing’er. As a man, even if he was afraid of death, if his woman was in danger, he would not hesitate to protect her.

“Who are you?!” Shangguan Tianyue saw a stranger standing in front of his daughter, and his voice turned icy instantly.

Zhou Weiqing smiled faintly and said: “Senior, I am Bing’er’s fiance.”

“Fiance?” Shangguan Tianyue’s voice raised up much higher, as he swept a fierce gaze on Zhou Weiqing. He then said rudely: “You? A mere Higher Level Shi Stage Heavenly Jewel Master, barely breaking thirteen level of Heavenly Energy? You? Want to be my daughter’s fiance?”

Hearing his words, Zhou Weiqing was shocked. He was not using any Heavenly Energy, and with just a single look, Shangguan Tianyue had been able to tell his cultivation level so accurately.

“Senior, my cultivation level has nothing to do with the feelings between Shangguan Bing’er and I.” Zhou Weiqing said simply. neither servile nor overbearing. 1

Shangguan Tianyue said coldly: “How can there be no connection? To be my Shangguan Tianyue’s daughter in law, you must be a dragon or phoenix amongst men. What are you? No looks, no cultivation, and you want to marry into my Heaven’s Expanse Palace?!”

Zhou Weiqing’s face turned cold. If anyone else looked down upon him, insulted him, if his power was sufficient, he would definitely leave them with an unforgettable experience, and if his power wasn’t sufficient, he would hold back, remember that, and show them in the future. However, this person in front of him was Shangguan Bing’er’s father, his future father-in-law, this could possibly determine whether or not he could be with Shangguan Bing’er in the future. Furthermore, he said that in front of Shangguan Bing’er; as such, our dear Little Fatty was unable to hold himself back from retorting.

“Senior, you are right. I do not have the looks, nor do I have the cultivation level. In your eyes, I may be nothing, just a small fry. However, I love Bing’er, and am willing to do anything for her. Furthermore, Bing’er is already mine, we have already been intimate, and there is nothing you can do to change that. You are so obstinate and conceited, I can understand why Aunty Tang Xian left you.” 2

“What did you say?” Shangguan Tianyue said angrily.

Zhou Weiqing felt his entire body tighten, and before he knew what happened, he was in Shangguan Tianyue’s hands, held by the neck and unable to breathe, and it was as if he had lost connection with his Heavenly Energy, and unable to do anything at all.

Shangguan Tianyue held Zhou Weiqing with one hand, while he looked at Shangguan Bing’er. His entire body shivered in rage, as he could easily see that she was no longer a virgin.

“Let go! Let go of him!” Shangguan Bing’er was extremely urgent, and she quickly flew forward to clutch at Shangguan Tianyue’s arm.

A profound meaning flashed, hidden, as he said solemnly: “Bing’er, follow me home and I’ll let him go. Otherwise, I’ll kill him now.”

Without hesitation, Shangguan Bing’er said: “I’ll follow you home, quick, let go of him.”

Shangguan Tianyue flung his right hand back out, and Zhou Weiqing’s body flew and landed right at the spot he was in earlier, as if he had not moved before.

Shangguan Tianyue pulled Shangguan Bing’er as he glared coldly at Zhou Weiqing and said: “Even if you stole my daughter’s virginity, that does not mean you can become my son in law.” After saying that, he did not allow the two to speak any further, and in a flash of bright light which enveloped both him and Shangguan Bing’er, they vanished.

Shangguan Xue’er glanced at Zhou Weiqing, hate in her eyes, before she chased after Shangguan Tianyue. Zhou Weiqing was left alone in the chamber, panting hard.

In the next moment, Shangguan Tianyue appeared outside the Consolidating Equipment Pavilion. Shangguan Bing’er’s beautiful eyes were filled with rage. “Why did you treat Little Fatty like that? This life, I will only love Little Fatty.”

  1. Is it bad that I wanted him to say ‘This is why your wife left you.’ Lol. He probably would have been killed though haha
  2. Damn! BURN! I totally did not think that he would say it! Haha!

  1. Wow. Shangguan Tianyue is… an ass. You literally just found your daughter, and said daughter just found out who you are, and already you’re trying to control who she marries? Dude… the hell? I know parents tend to have a ton of say in those matters for this society, and you might be going for the overbearing overprotective overpowered father, but at least take a day!

    1. I know! He also immediately went for the “so you want to marry into my Heaven’s Expanse Palace?” when it was literally 5 minutes since he found out there were a connection. Then there’s also the great way to earn your daughters forgiveness by threatening to kill the man she loves if she doesn’t come with you. I can’t see any problem with that plan! ^^

    2. “Fiance?” Shangguan Tianyue’s voice raised up much higher, as he swept a fierce gaze on Zhou Weiqing. He then said rudely: “You? A mere Higher Level Shi Stage Heavenly Jewel Master, barely breaking thirteen level of Heavenly Energy? You? Want to be my daughter’s fiance?”

      I don’t even know what to say, he’s got SIX attributes, 2 greater and two saint attributes(darkness, spatial, time, evil). If he’s not a dragon amongst men, no one is. And he’s way too conceited and overbearing.

      Anyway, I called this shit before it happened. I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO TURN OUT LIKE THIS. This is the cliche among the cliches, It’s so stale that I think I will cry. Now he’s going to go into powerleveling and in 50-150 chapters he will be back(with one or two new girls for the harem), fully powered up to take bing’er and the other two triplets, for a triplet addition to the harem after spanking their father black and blue. Dull.

  2. Thanks for the chapter! I knew it, I just knew it. I said Fatty was foolish to let them meet. I think I will have to come back to this story in a while cause I won’t enjoy the drama. I had really hoped this story would be different from the others. I am disappointed.

    1. ”I had really hoped this story would be different from the others. I am disappointed.” me too =/ if i had the patience i would let the novel stack some chapters and the come back to read them since i’m tired of this kind of plot

  3. Thanks for the chapter! Well Bing’ers father is clearly a piece of sh*t I’m glad Zhou Weiqing called him out also that bs comment about wanting to marry into the expanse palace neither he nor Bing’er had any knowledge of her fathers background so how could that be his goal and he really didn’t look too hard for her if he couldn’t find her at all it’s not like she was hidden at all she was publicly known as the successor to lead the Heavenly Bow armies and they may be a minor play but any decent Kingdom keeps tabs on these things

  4. That Burn, Beautiful. Perfectly worded too. Thanks for the chapter.

    Father or not he hasn’t been in her life, as of right now he doesn’t have the right to tell her who she can and cannot be with. They may be related by blood, but he hasn’t earned the right to be called Father by her yet.

    1. Is it wrong for me to have wanted Bing’er to respond, kill him and I will kill myself right here, Just wanted to see his reaction (granted he probably is able to stop her from killing herself).

    1. Shangguan Tianyue said coldly: “How can there be no connection? To be my Shangguan Tianyue’s ‘daughter in law’, you must be a dragon or phoenix amongst men.
      Son in law
      I’m surprised no one noticed this.

  5. Shangguan Tianyue, now you want to act like a father? He’s a complete stranger to Bing’er yet he acts so controlling, and Bing’er just accepts it. Seriously, the author is really giving her a lack of personality recently. Ugh, so irritating.

    1. She doesn’t want him to be hurt so she agreed, but yea I kinda wanted her to stand her ground as well like she has done multiple times in the past. He is her father though so momentary emotional instability?

  6. Looking at the teaser i am really not fond of how Bing’er reacts. I don’t mind her agreing to go with him because of Fatty’s life but… that teaser ;/
    I would be kinda unhappy if the author makes the father out to be just overprotective because Bing’er is his daugher and a daughter must respect her father.
    Honestly, I would have loved it if she just told him to kill her too if he was gonna kill Fatty, but that hasn’t been her character for a long while now.

  7. Thx for the chapter, *sigh* here we go with the plot that i’ve seen in almost every chinese novel that i’ve read until now… i wish it would be like LLS oh well…

  8. Thanks for the chapter!
    I do think it would have been interesting if Bing’er when all “Romeo and Juliet” on her newly discovered father. I guess that could still happen though . . .

  9. This chapter pisses me off to no end. Not because her father is an ass, that has been established long ago, but because Bing’er’s speech about honoring her mother turned out to be just hot air. Not only does she let him treat ZW like that but she also quietly goes with him and even looks at him “warmly” out of nowhere right after he almost kills her “love.” Thought she was supposed to be “strong” and have a “backbone.” The author is slowly but surely making her just a useless background character to be used as a damsel for plot development. Very disappointing…

  10. This turn of events is interesting. As far as Bing’er goes, I think that her actions in this chapter were perfectly reasonable as opposed to what others have said.

    Lastly, thanks for that last paragraph in the sneakpeek, otherwise that cliff would have been too terrible lol.

    It’s reassuring to see that he’s at least reasonable within being unreasonable lol. And I don’t blame him for reacting that way, it honestly makes a lot of sense. :p

  11. ♥♦♥♦♥♦♥♦♥♦☻♦♥♦♥♦♥♦♥♦♥
    Thank you for the chapter

  12. How can people tell someone is a virginbso easily?! Is there like some kind of aura… That only high level scoundrels can tell? (I’m assuming her father is a scoundrel, or else why would Aunty be mad at him.)
