Chapter 1168: Settling Karma with Old Friends

Meng Hao glanced at the bag of holding, and then looked over at the similar bag of holding in his mother’s hands. All of a sudden, he realized that Sun Hai wasn’t as annoying as he had previously thought.

However, Fang Yu was still cussing him out, causing Meng Hao to tremble in fear. He suddenly shot forward to appear directly in front of Sun Hai.

“Sun Hai, how dare you call me Brother-in-law!” he roared, his eyes flashing. “My sister is as lovely as a flower, tender and refined, unique and incomparable. If you want to fall for her, fine, but without my approval, NOBODY can marry my sister!” His hand shot out like lightning, his index and middle fingers stabbing toward Sun Hai’s forehead. Considering the level of Sun Hai’s cultivation base, if that blow landed, he would be dead beyond the shadow of a doubt.

Meng Hao attacked with such speed that even his mother was shocked. However, she quickly realized that something else was going on. She understood how her son thought, and knew that Meng Hao wasn’t the type to randomly kill people. His finger attack surely had a deeper meaning.

Seeing Meng Hao lunging toward him caused Sun Hai’s face to go pale and his mind to spin. He immediately fell back, but considering the difference in level between their cultivation bases, he was like a firefly trying to compare with the shining moon. It was basically impossible for him to evade Meng Hao. At the same time, Fang Yu was closing in on Meng Hao, looking like an explosive dragon.

“Meng Hao, stay your hand!”

“Don’t worry, sister,” Meng Hao replied, “I’ll cut down this pervert for you. From now on, you’ll finally have some peace and quiet. This is merely the duty of a younger brother.”

Fang Yu suddenly started to get even more anxious. “Meng Hao, you scoundrel, I forbid you from harming him!”

Almost in the same moment that her words rang out, Meng Hao’s fingers touched Sun Hai’s forehead. Sun Hai immediately began to shake. However, it was at this point that he suddenly received a message transmitted by Meng Hao, along with a wink.

“Elder Brother Sun, this is your chance. Go!”

Sun Hai wasn’t a stupid person, so he instantly bit down on his tongue, causing blood to spray out of his mouth. Then he let out a miserable shriek. He suddenly flew backward, intentionally sending his cultivation base into chaos to add to the effect, which caused blood to spurt out from the pores on his skin.

“Sun Hai!” Fang Yu cried, shooting toward Sun Hai and catching him in her arms. Her expression was one of extreme anxiety and guilt.

“I… I can’t hold out much longer,” Sun Hai gasped, trembling. “Before I die… I only have one wish. I–” Fang Yu suddenly frowned, and then a dark expression covered her face.

“Bastard!” she growled through gritted teeth. Then she raised her hand to slap Sun Hai. Sun Hai immediately dodged to the side to avoid the blow; obviously he wasn’t injured at all. Fang Yu was now even angrier than before. She glared at Meng Hao for a moment and then began to chase after Sun Hai.

Seeing that Fang Yu’s anger was no longer fixed on him, Meng Hao sighed in relief. Even if his cultivation base was more powerful than it was, he would never dare to raise his hand to his parents or his sister. Furthermore, he could tell from the way his mother treated Sun Hai that she and his father must approve of their relationship.

Although you couldn’t see it from how she spoke to Sun Hai, Fang Yu clearly liked him, at least mostly. Apparently, all the pain and suffering he had gone through over the past years had finally touched her heart.

Meng Li appeared next to Meng Hao and watched as the enraged Fang Yu chased Sun Hai off into the distance. Meng Li’s eyes shone with warmth and kindness as she said, “Your father and I both approve of them. Sun Hai might not be incredibly exceptional, but he’s not bad. Most important is that he truly loves your sister. The past few years, she’s constantly bullied him, but he actually seems to like it. He’s got a good temperament, that kid.

“Your father and I talked about it, and unless something unexpected happens, they should become official beloved partners in a few years.

“Now that I think about it, Sun Hai is very respectful. He’s mentioned over and over again how thankful he is for the support you showed that year.” She looked over at Meng Hao and smiled.

Meng Hao actually felt a bit embarrassed. He had been trying to pull a fast one on Sun Hai, and had never imagined that he was actually conning himself at the time. However, now that he thought about it, if Sun Hai and Fang Yu did end up getting married, and it was because of him, then that could be seen as a truly beautiful thing.

“I’m not worried about your sister,” Meng Li said, her voice soft. “But you….”

After a moment of silence, Meng Hao took a deep breath and said, “Mom, I’m planning to leave the Ninth Mountain and Sea. I’m going to go find Xu Qing… and bring her back.”

Meng Li didn’t say anything at first. However, after a moment, she nodded.

Burying her worry and anxiety, she said, “Go, as soon as your father’s ceremony is over. It’s your choice to make, and if you’re sure that’s what you want to do, then… you need to bring my daughter-in-law back here to meet us.”

A sudden breeze blew through the building, causing the leaves to rustle and lifting Meng Li’s hair. Meng Hao looked over at his mother and noticed some new wrinkles on her forehead. She was by no means old, but she definitely looked different than he remembered her looking in the past.

Not even cultivators could completely escape the effects of the passing of time.

Meng Hao suddenly reached out and hugged his mother.

“Aw, honey,” she said, smiling warmly, suddenly recalling what Meng Hao used to look like as a child. The two of them chatted until evening fell, whereupon Meng Hao finally took his leave.

“Mom, there’s still some time before dad’s ceremony. I’m going to visit a few places. I’ve been away a long time.”

The evening wind was picking up, and dark clouds were gathering in the sky. As Meng Hao left the courtyard of the Fang Clan, the rumble of thunder could be heard, and great bean-sized raindrops began to pour down.

Meng Hao used no magic to block the rain. Soon, he was soaked through and through, and as he walked down the street, he looked around at the people scurrying about to avoid the rain. He shook his head and smiled. The rain made him think about the State of Zhao, Mount Daqing, and everything that had happened back in those days.

Sighing, he continued along. As he walked, he could sense the boundless Immortal power filling the lands of Planet South Heaven. That came because of all the visiting Fang Clan cultivators, who radiated an intangible energy.

Among all that energy were two auras that shone as prominently bright as lanterns on a dark night. Those two auras belonged to Fang Shoudao and Fang Yanxu. Planet South Heaven was a unique place that Dao Realm experts could not enter, so they had restricted their cultivation bases to the great circle of the Ancient Realm.

As he sensed all of these things, Meng Hao’s heart gradually grew tranquil. There was a lingering question that his mother had not asked him, and that he himself had not brought up. That was, if he left… when would he return?

He didn’t know. He had absolutely no idea how long it would be from the time he left the Ninth Mountain and Sea until he would be able to bring Xu Qing back to Planet South Heaven to meet his parents.

“Maybe it will happen quickly. Or maybe… it will take a very, very long time.” Meng Hao had a strange premonition that caused him to brood silently as he walked through the rain. He had lost track of time, and eventually he stopped and looked up, whereupon he noticed a distant wall. A huge gate could be seen in that wall, hanging outside of which was a lantern.

The lantern swung back and forth in the heavy wind, and the heavy, driving rain plopped onto the canvas canopy which covered the lantern, flowing together into a solid stream that then splashed onto the ground.

However, the wick inside was of unconventional design and, although the flame flickered wildly, it didn’t fade. It continued to burn, illuminating the character which was written on the canopy. It said… Ji 季.

This was the location of the Ji Clan on Planet South Heaven.

This was the exact place where he had once broken down a gate to collect debts…. 1

He had never imagined that his strolling would subconsciously lead him here.

“I guess it’s just destiny,” he thought. “I wonder if my old friends from all those years ago are still here.” He walked up to the door and looked at the iron rings, thinking about how he had ripped the rings off of the doors back then. He chuckled, then reached up and knocked. The sound of the knock echoed out into the courtyard of the Ji Clan.

He only knocked once, then stood there waiting patiently.

Almost immediately, the sound of a commotion could be heard inside the Ji Clan ancestral mansion. Before long, the door slowly swung open, and Meng Hao could see several hundred members of the Ji Clan lined up inside. At their head was the local Ji Clan Patriarch.

He was no longer young like he had been before. He looked much older, and as he stood there looking at Meng Hao, a strange look could be seen in his eyes. After a long moment, he sighed, clasped hands, and bowed.

“We offer greetings to the Crown Prince of the Fang Clan.”

All of the other Ji Clan cultivators bowed in unison with him. Ji Xiaoxiao was there in the crowd, wearing the clothes of a married woman. She was no longer young and pretty like she had been before. She looked old now, and she also had a conflicted look in her eyes as she looked at Meng Hao. 2

It had been years since their last meeting, and yet, Meng Hao looked as dashing as he always had, or perhaps even more handsome than before. Every move he made caused an indescribable energy to spread out, creating a pressure that weighed down on everyone. It was as if he, standing there outside the door, were the center of the entire world.

And yet, there stood Ji Xiaoxiao, long since married. An inexpressible bitter feeling rose up in her heart, and she bowed her head.

Meng Hao looked around at the various members of the Ji Clan and saw only a few familiar faces. A couple of the people he remembered fighting with in years back, plus there was Ji Xiaoxiao and Ji Tianyi.

Ji Tianyi was now middle-aged, and his cultivation base was in the early Dao Seeking stage. He had since become an elder in the clan. He looked at Meng Hao with a complicated expression.

“Ji Xuelin?” Meng Hao asked.

“He failed in Spirit Severing seven years ago. He’s dead.” The person to answer Meng Hao was Ji Tianyi. 3

Meng Hao stood there silently for a long moment. In the end, he decided that since he had just happened across this place while strolling about, he wouldn’t enter. Looking at the familiar faces one more time, he clasped hands and bowed, then turned to leave.

“Wait a moment!” Ji Xiaoxiao said through clenched teeth. As Meng Hao looked back, she threw a bag of holding over to him, which he caught.

“Those are all the spirit stones I owe you. The debt is clear now.”

“Here’s mine.” Ji Tianyi also threw over a bag of holding.

Meng Hao scanned them, then looked back at Ji Xiaoxiao and Ji Tianyi, and nodded.

“Henceforth, the debt is clear,” he said softly. The Ji Clan paid special attention to Karma. Were his cultivation base lower than theirs, they would be able to take the initiative in manipulating it. But now Meng Hao’s cultivation base had long since reached the level that all they could do was look up at him from far below. They no longer had the initiative when it came to Karma. He did.

If Meng Hao wanted, he could refuse to clear the debt. As his cultivation base grew higher, the Karma would grow even stronger, and the pressure on them greater. However, with the debt clear, they were finally free.

Having settled the Karma, Meng Hao turned and walked off into the distance.

The rain began to fall harder.


Note from Deathblade: In this and some subsequent chapters, it clearly indicates that many years have passed since Meng Hao left Planet South Heaven. According to the descriptions, it would have to have been decades. Although no major time skip was described that I can recall, there have been several instances in which we don’t know exactly how much time passed. One example would be when Meng Hao wandered around alone in the Ruins of Immortality.

  1. Meng Hao came to collect debts from the Ji Clan in chapter 803
  2. Ji Xiaoxiao was the girl he met in the Ancient Demon Immortal Sect. Because of their mutual secrets, she helped him out a bit in the end. Later, he saw her in the Milky Way Sea, but didn’t reveal himself to her. When he came back to collect debts, she wasn’t present
  3. Ji Tianyi was one of the people who ended up owing money to Meng Hao in the Ancient Demon Immortal Sect. He was never named in that arc itself, but was mentioned by Meng Hao in chapter 803. Ji Xuelin was also mentioned in that same chapter, and you might remember that it was his brother Ji Xueming, who initially tried to stop Meng Hao from taking the door hoops

    1. Thanks for the chapter!

      What ever happened to going back to the Ancient Demon Immortal Sect to climb that bridge or whatever? I remember that he couldn’t proceed any further and Night and the guy whose life he lived in the dream (Ke Jiusi or something like that) told him to come back when he gets stronger. He never did go back though…

  1. Have faith in the Lord Fifth, gain eternal life! When the Lord Fifth appears, who dares to cause strife!

    1. sorry lord fifths i shall barrow this. I think a lot of people are reading this wrong by trying to put a number to the years Meng Hao has been gone from south planet, and its perfectly justifiable because how cultivators have much longer life force then regular humans and it confuses the reader (why is everyone coming up with numbers if they aren’t confuse?). The problem is that sometimes the author doesn’t work with the laws he set into his fantasy world. Remember how Meng Hao isn’t suppose to be able to absorb the heaven and earth energy to cultivate yet he breaks into higher realm faster then genius that COULD? If he breaks into his realm through enlightenment it makes you think what’s the point of cultivation? For the longest time i couldn’t wrap this around my head but i’ve learn to accept it as it is. If the author says so then it is so. And Time did PASS, some people still refuses to believe it because the author didn’t state anything in the past. Well, he did it very clearly in this chapter. OOO one last thing like someone else said down the post i too believe meng hao gave a foreshadow that he isnt gonna return back home with his parents until the end of the story. the last remaining chapter is probably going to take place outside the 9th mountain and sea. Seems a shame to close all the wonders of the 33 heavens, the other 8 mountains & sea, and the remaining ruin immortal world outside in a mere 450 chapter a lot things gonna get weeded out T.T

  2. Yea, I was definitely going through the moments that had indefinite time lapses when I heard how all of them changed. It really puts things into perspective.
    Loving the relaxed chapters. Its always nice to see down-to-earth Meng Hao every now and then.

    Thanks for the Chapter DB!

  3. Ji Xiaoxiao… I still remember back when Meng Hao’s face was pressed to her boobs…

    Why?!! Why couldn’t Er Gen make this a harem dammit!!!!!! It’s too sad to see these beauties age and die…

    That said, I do also kinda wish she saw Fang Yu as a young girl as well… see where that rivalry got…

    Thanks for the chapter XD

      1. I agree, while I do think it’s a bit of a shame since some of the women in this series are really well written and there are countless others who have multiple Beloved, that doesn’t fit the tone of the series, nor its theme of loneliness, of looking back and realizing how many had fallen while he walked his path, his Dao.

        1. That last part wasn’t really much of a theme shown through out the novel.

          In fact, it’s something shown twice…

          And even if he had a harem, he could do that.

          Also, it’d be in the end that he’d really enjoy the harem so it wouldn’t go against the theme much anyways.

          Single love fits, but harem would have also fit.

          1. It’s only been explicitly stated a few times, but its been mentioned a lot more than that. He’ll look around only to realize that he’s alone with no one able to follow him. Its also shaped his personality a lot, which is why he told Dao Heaven that he doesn’t want to look back when he reaches the peak and realize that he’s alone again.

    1. Yea, every other novel is a harem man, honestly, that would ruin this amazing novel. There is so much more depth in this story then in many other LN, it would be a travesty to screw it up with something as garbage is a harem trope.

        1. I agree that harem isn’t in and of itself a bad thing, but harem authors almost always use it as a cop out of actual development and skill as an author. If Er Gen was to make a harem it’d probably still be amazing, but most harem series out there are pretty trashy.

          There are only a couple harem series that I’ve actually thought are good.

  4. Hmmm…i now forsee the ending of this novel. He will go back to Planet South Heaven and will take a stroll while recalling all of those memories. Seems a sad and lonely ending this will be. 😐😐😐

  5. sigh…. what a sad chapter…. old friends getting old and you, still the same… :/ …. kinda reminds me of the sad story of Gilgamesh in the “Epic of Gilgamesh”…. sigh

    Oh! Thanks for the chapter DB and co!

  6. thanks elder brother deathblade for adding a comment that is exactly what I was thinking about when reading the chapter haha. but I must say I’m not 100% convinced. even for nascent soul cultivators, a few decades are nothing. like deathblade said, there were no major time skips. even if we consider that 50 or 100 years passed (which is highly unlikely), the aging of these cultivators are definitely weird. especially his mother! come on, she is at least at ancient realm! her lifespan in indefinitely long, maybe more than a hundred thousand years, so why would she age in a few decades? if she keeps aging like that, she will be decrepit in a mere thousands years. that makes no sense, because it would mean she will be an old woman for 99% of her life. looks like aging in issth is completely random.

    1. I would rather think his mom’s signs of aging are from other things, like worrying for her children and so on instead of age. Otherwise, it doesn’t make much sense even if 10000 years passed.

      1. Totally agree, she had to watch MH go through lots of close calls, as well as the overall chaos that occurred in the Fang Clan. These sorts of stresses can do more to age you than just straight time.

        1. I actually thought about that too, but it was implied the aging was a result of time: “not even cultivators can completely escape the effects of the passage of time”.

      1. well, assuming that all of them aged due to fighting is a wild guess since nothing was mentioned about this. and even if that was the case, Haowie has already burned his life force and “aged” many times before, but he completely turns young again after recovery. and again, we can’t just assume they all burned their lives.

    2. Maybe ‘old’ here is like 50-60 years old. Besides, it’s not guaranteed that with their breakthroughs they’d look younger, so if they only recently made breakthroughs it wouldn’t be unthinkable for them to look old now. Besides, like DB said, some of the things he’s gone through could easily be many times longer than we thought.

      1. there are many events that are linked together, so saying that more than a hundred years passed would be a stretch. if a really long time had passed, it would be mentioned at some point. also, all of the people he met were at least nascent soul since young. a few decades for them is the same as a few years for mortals, no one turns from a young woman to an old lady in a couple years.

  7. I really like the fact that unlike most novel in this genre the MC actually goes back to where he started and sees the changes in the places and people.

    Thanks for the Chapter

    1. They usually go back and see where they came from and notice how far they went and how things changed.

      The only time it doesn’t seem to happen is when the MCs haven’t lived that long (like 500 chapters but they’re still in their 20’s).

  8. I always felt that he should have gone back to the two sects that he started- one of which considers him a god… what happened to the brother and sister that he helped in that crow totem clan?

    1. I think we got some info about the totem clan siblings ages ago, after he formed his Violet Sea Nascent Soul. They both aged quite a lot, by then. I think the sister was an old women in Core Formation at that point?

    1. I feel kinda sad reading this chapters, something almost like a longing or nostalgy, it hasn’t been long since i started this novel, but still.. It feels special to me, I dunno, and reading this chapter makes me think that, it will end soon… Although I do feel sad for this, I’m definitely happy for starting this novel with such a long name.. I should probably leave this for when it really ends, but well, whatever, I just know that I will take Meng Hao, Xu Qing, Fatty, the butt-exploder mirror, Lord Fifth, Meat Jelly, all with me for life..

      Thanks Deathblade for bringing such an amazing work to us, I’m really grateful to you hardwork during all this time!

  9. It makes sense: Meng Hao has already attained immortality so aging isn’t really a concern anymore. I’ve always thought that ever since he ventured out into the starry sky, it would be as though decades are just months. Like in Panlong, wherein upon Linley’s ascent to Godhood, time was counted in years and people didn’t think much about it… amirite?

    1. Immortals are not immortal, aging is still a concern. His mother is in Ancient Realm and she still got wrinkles in the time it took for Meng Hao to grow up to his current state.

    2. Like Duniak said, Immortals aren’t immortal. Even those in the Dao Realm aren’t, since they need to basically deactivate themselves to last as long as possible guarding over their clans. The only realm we’ve seen so far that might have an indefinite longevity is the Paragon Realm.

  10. Meng Hao spent a hundred years breaking through to Nascent Soul. When he emerged, even some of the Foundation Establishment cultivators he knew were old but still alive. Just how much time has passed since he left Planet South Heaven that young Spirit Severing Cultivators have grown middle-aged? It can’t be less than a thousand years.

    1. Yea it doesn’t really make sense, those cultivators should probably mature if they were kids but barely age after that, considering they are at the top of the food chain on this planet and even regular cultivators age very slowly.

      And I can’t remember any big time-skip in the story except for the 100 years in the violet sea. Even in the spirit realm, cultivators typically take much longer to progress than MH did, but they don’t age much unless they get stuck at a bottleneck for at least hundreds of years.

      Since he left the planet, he spent less than a year to reach East Victory, then maybe a couple years in the Fang clan, then maybe a year in the 9th Sea, and another year in the Windswept realm. I don’t think he spent that long in the ruins of immortality either, when he gets out people still talk about Fang Mu as if it’s still relatively fresh news (for instance in the Fang clan they’re still asking Fang Wei if that was him).

      So yea it would be interesting to know why so much time seems to have passed all of a sudden…

  11. Got a question Chu yuyan failed her true immortal ascension , will she get another chance to become true immortal or is she some false immortal right now ?

    MHxCYY FTW!!!

      1. What I know about false immortals is that they became immortals in peek of Dao Seeking realm if true immortals help them . But if the true immortal that help them die they will also die .

        1. Actually its not the the true immortal help them rather those who are at peak of Dao seeking may use others Dao by writing their name at the immortal dais that the Ji Clan has.

          Though it actually have not been explain clearly as we can see at many place that to achieve immortality through immortal tribulations either by destiny or by illumination vines(we ruled out by own Dao) it takes quite a lot of preparations and power yet the are still several thousands if not billions immortal including true and false and yet they have been almost and maybe the same number for the ancient realms.

          Do they all comes from true immortal? Or any stage 6-7 immortal can summon the ancients door even if they are false immortal? But how can it be as before Er Gen wrote that false immortal can’t advance into the power of true immortal not saying ancient.

          Maybe in later date we would knew but as to answer your first question it isn’t likely the Chu Yuyan is the false immortal. Failing the tribulations resulting death if one survive they most probably can’t summon the immortal door

  12. This chapter just makes me didn’t have any thoughts about making jokes on Fang Yu and Sun Hai. I was feeling rather nostalgic and sappy about this chapter.

    Maybe this is what Meng Hao said before to Daoheaven that when one day he’ll stand at the top, he don’t want to look back and he is alone..

    Seems like Meng Hao and I got the same fear of ends up alone…

    I guess I kinda can related to this chapter’s a bit…..

  13. Wait… I just realised something; Meng Hao left planet South Heaven a little after Pill demon became a true immortal.
    And it was said somewhere that for 1000 years after true immortal destiny people can use immortal vines to become immortal (someone may need to double check this, but I’m fairly sure that’s what was written).
    And it was written that Chu Yuyan was certain she could reach immortal ascension within those 1000 years. And she attempted it to help Howie in the windswept realm.
    That means, theoretically, LESS than 1000 years should have passed since Howie left South Heaven.
    … Which finally brings me to my point; why DID Ji Xiaoxiao age so much in such a short time? (Yes, everyone’s been asking the same thing. But I attempted to add a time frame.)

    Ah well, I guess it’s just one of those things that will never be explained. Added by the author for the feels (which produced the intended result, btw. I felt pretty… melancholy? Yep, that’s the word).

  14. Its always this kind of breaks that we need from all the excitement of the battle and challenge…

    I started reading this novel around mid year and it has comes to the point where just the thought that Meng Hao would ends up alone, sadden me.

    Imagining the possibilities if in the future instead of Paragon Sea Dream living in that floating cave, lies the Meng Hao and stares at the void reminiscences about the old days and that He himself is almost invisible to the point of immortality at it finest.

    All the peoples he’s once knew is all gone and reborn again and again. He knew that everything’s start must have the end but it didn’t come to him..

    I’ve been totally sappy .__.

  15. “Planet South Heaven was a unique place that Dao Realm experts could not enter, so they had restricted their cultivation bases to the great circle of the Ancient Realm.”

    How is Fang Xiufeng going to enter the Dao Realm when he can’t leave Planet South Heaven?

    1. The restriction seems to have a loophole, entering the planet while below Dao, and Breaking through to the Dao Realm while at the planet (It’s even more easily exploitable since when someone initiates his Dao Tribulation, that individual is basically invicible until the end of the tribulation)

  16. Wasn’t the interest rate said to be 100% compounded yearly? That’s times 1024 every 10 years.

    The aging described would generally correspond to about 10-20 years for a mortal. For cultivators, it’s got to be at least twice that, right? So even if it’s only been 40 years, they’d owe him more than one trillion (1,099,511,627,776) times the original amount. If I remember the conversion correctly, that’s 100,000,000 immortal jade per spirit stone they owed.

    Where do these people get this much money?

  17. Thanks for the chapter Deathblade, anonpuffs, Madam Deathblade, GNE, Courtrecords, Shu, JerryDaBaws, and Baby Deathblade! This leg of the journey feels melancholic and nostalgic. Hoping it ends on a happy note.

  18. I think this was the emotional center of the chapter, “A sudden breeze blew through the building, causing the leaves to rustle and lifting Meng Li’s hair. Meng Hao looked over at his mother and noticed some new wrinkles on her forehead. She was by no means old, but she definitely looked different than he remembered her looking in the past.” I could picture it very well. They’re getting old and when he has his premonition, you could really tell that it’s going to be a long time before he returns and sees his family again. Because he knows this, he’s ingraining the whole of south heaven into his heart so he doesn’t forget.

    (I think what would have added an effect on the scenario when he was leaving the ji clan and said “Henceforth, the debt is clear”, air currents come off of him and effect the surroundings as the link between him and the ones who owe money is gone.)
