Chapter 181: Dan Fei with Her Emotions in Disarray

“Heh heh, little Dan, what’s wrong? Your face doesn’t look too good. Did Jiang Chen run afoul of you somehow?” Tutor Ye asked with a chuckle.

“No, I just don’t like his strutting figure. Who does he think he is! Teacher, that little brat dares reject your intention to take him as a disciple although you are a personage of such character!”

“Little Dan, this doesn’t seem like you.” The old tutor smiled. “When did our little Dan become so irritated by matters like this?”

Dan Fei was a bit irked, “Teacher, Dan’er is being a champion for your cause out of the goodness of my heart, yet you laugh at me.”

“Haha, to think that the Dan Fei all the young men in the capital are infatuated with also has the side of a young girl. Little Dan, if they saw your current state, it would surely completely overturn their understanding of you.”

“Then let them overturn! Who asked those silly children to think of me?!” Dan Fei was obviously very spoiled in front of the old tutor, and was acting markedly different from her coolly composed and competent exterior during the banquet.

“Alright, little Dan, all jokes aside, Jiang Chen turned me down because he understood the principle of right and wrong. To be honest, although I can give him a few pointers on the road of martial dao, but I truly may not have the qualifications to be his teacher in long run.”

Shock was revealed in Dan Fei’s beautiful eyes. “Teacher, this… isn’t this assessment too high?”

Although Dan Fei had been adopted by Tutor Ye since she was young and had served by his side ever since, she had never heard him give a word of high praise to anyone. In the eyes of the old tutor, some of the young folk didn’t even warrant any words of praise at all.

Those who the old tutor would occasionally mention would only merit an ordinary compliment.

“It wouldn’t be too much to highly praise a young man who, in the vicinity of the sixteen kingdoms, can easily talk about the origins of the Phoenix-Dragon and take out the Nine Magnificence Dew Wine.”

“But… he’s just been a bit luckier to make the acquaintance of an uncommon expert, that’s all!” Dan Fei argued, unwilling to accept that.

The old tutor smiled. “Little Dan, do you think that there are many uncommon experts in this world, and that they’re all sitting there twiddling their thumbs, waiting for someone to make their acquaintance and strike up a friendship? There are so many people within the sixteen kingdoms, so many billions of people so why doesn’t such a fortunate encounter happen to Ye Dai? Or to Ye Rong? Why didn’t it happen to anyone else; why was it Jiang Chen who was so lucky?”

Dan Fei’s red lips twitched, “He’s just lucky.”

“Haha, luck! Things such as luck do exist. But for Jiang Chen to receive the favor of an uncommon expert, it’s not just a matter of luck.” The old tutor chuckled.

“Anyways, I just think he’s too cocky and will surely suffer in the future. To say nothing of anything else, the first prince’s group of people will surely hate him for what transpired today.”

“Ye Dai?” The old tutor laughed. “If Ye Dai was smart, he shouldn’t have antagonized Jiang Chen to begin with. If he’s not smart enough, then I’d say his dreams of being Crown Prince are just about at their end. Rather, although that child Ye Rong has always kept a low profile, who would’ve thought that he would have such resolve this time to travel tens of thousands of li to the Eastern Kingdom to recruit Jiang Chen. That kid Ye Rong is not simple alright.”

“Teacher, do you also think Ye Rong is not bad?” Dan Fei had the best impression of Ye Rong out of all the princes.

Although Ye Dai looked quite charming, graceful, tall and strong with the demeanor of a gentleman, but Dan Fei was quite sharp and extremely intelligent so her observations skills were very strong and she actually didn’t admire the traits that Ye Dai was displaying.

It was rather Ye Rong who was shrewd, but had a stately air in his bones.

“Ye Rong actually made a good move in placing his bet on Jiang Chen.” The old tutor glossed over things as he changed the topic. “Little Dan, make a trip to the Southern Palace and prepare a few items for me. My Phoenix-Dragon, ai, it’s inadvisable to wait longer!”

The old tutor was worried about his Phoenix Dragon. Although the process of castration wasn’t complicated, he still wasn’t at ease handing it over to someone else.

He decided to do it himself, but some things had to be prepared first.

“Yes, Dan’er will do so immediately.” Dan Fei knew what the old tutor was going to do, but she was a girl and wasn’t at liberty to participate in something like this.

“Don’t be in a rush, I’ll write a list for you. How else will you do it?”

Dan Fei had some ties to Elder Ning of the Southern Palace.

Therefore, when she needed to do something, she would always look for Elder Ning. Unfortunately, Elder Ning happened to be out when she arrived at the Southern Palace.

Dan Fei handed the list over to the associate and said, “These are some items that Tutor Ye wants. Choose the best ones and pay no heed to price.”

“Yes Miss Dan Fei. Your servant knows that even without your instructions. Please wait momentarily Miss Dan Fei, these items will take a while to prepare.”

Dan Fei nodded, “Please prepare them as soon as possible.”

She walked to a corner of the lobby and found a seat to sit down on. She didn’t like to stand at the counter because people always walked past it.

Particularly the men who walked back and forth, their gazes were always quite dishonest as they swept them back and forth over her body. Although Dan Fei’s disposition was good, she never liked looks that reminded her of hungry wolves.

An exceptional girl like her was a unique sight in the Skylaurel Kingdom. Even if she hid in the corner, she was still given many lecherous looks. They swept up and down her body without abandon. If it wasn’t for her proper and demure appearance projecting its own awe-inspiring aura, many of them would have come and try to chat her up.

Dan Fei actually rarely showed her face in public. Most of her time was spent studying at the old tutor’s side. Most of the males that she had come in contact with the most were the noble sons and disciples of the Skylaurel Kingdom.

Although these noble sons were sometimes ridiculous, they would more or less restrain themselves because they knew of Dan Fei’s identity, even if they had certain thoughts. They were fearful of the old tutor’s presence and they didn’t dare step out of line.

However, not that many people in the public knew who Dan Fei was.

Dan Fei felt quite uncomfortable with all these gazes checking her out.

Two more people walked in at this moment. It was actually Elder Ning of the Southern Palace with Qiao Baishi at her side.

“Dan Fei?” Elder Ning was a business person and she had long since formed the good habit of observing everything around her. She scanned the entire lobby as soon as she set foot through the door.

Dan Fei was so extraordinary that Elder Ning’s eyes locked on to her immediately, even though she was sitting in the corner.

This was someone that Elder Ning had to curry favor with. She had a smile on her face as she greeted Dan Fei enthusiastically, “Dan Fei, I was wondering why I heard so much chattering early in the morning. We have a honored guest here! Why are you sitting here? My underlings are so incompetent! Come, come! Have a seat in my house.”

Dan Fei was startled when she saw Elder Ning. She almost didn’t dare greet her. “You’re… you’re big sister Ning?”

Elder Ning burst out in laughter, “Who would be so bored as to pretend they are me?”

Elder Ning tittered, she in a fantastically great mood. She loved seeing that kind of reaction. Ever since she took the Four Seasons Eternal Spring Pill, she seemed to have returned to the prime of her youth and she was met with these astonished gazes everywhere she went.

These looks made Elder Ning overflow with even more confidence.

“Sister Ning, you… You… ” Dan Fei couldn’t find the appropriate words at that moment.

“Alright, if you want to say that I was quite old before, you can go ahead and say it! I won’t mind, heh heh!” Elder Ning warmly grabbed Dan Fei’s hands and said, “Baishi, this is Dan Fei, my good sister!”

“Dan Fei, this is my newly hired assistant Qiao Baishi. He has a lot of potential.”

“Baishi greets Miss Dan Fei.” Qiao Baishi smiled.

Dan Fei nodded slightly. “Hello.”

The associate had finished preparing the items at this moment and walked over. “Miss Dan Fei, the items have been prepared. Would you like to take an inventory?”

How could Dan Fei take an inventory of the tools and materials needed for castration in front of Elder Ning and Qiao Baishi? It was simply too embarrassing.

She hastily said, “No no, that’s alright.”

She then spoke with a reddened face to Elder Ning, “Big sister Ning, the lordmaster still has some matters to take care of. I need to go back.”

Dan Fei felt that everything was quite odd today.

The perverse existence of Jiang Chen had appeared at the lordmaster’s birthday banquet without warning — this made her feel that things were a bit bizarre.

And now, having met her old acquaintance Elder Ning, it seemed that she had suddenly become twenty years younger. This was even more bizarre.

Just what was going on today? Why was everything so queer and wacky? Dan Fei started to suspect that she was dreaming.

Walking her to the door, Elder Ning spoke wistfully, “Dan Fei, you’re really in a hurry today? I wanted to share my beautifying secrets with you. Look at your skin, your figure, and your body. Tsk tsk, a flawless born beauty. I would want to eat you if I were a man!”

Dan Fei immediately flushed red, “Big sister Ning, don’t make jokes of me. You’ve become so young all of a sudden that at a glance, I look like your big sister. I’m going to envy you if you keep talking.”

“Heh heh, what is there to be envious about? I was lucky and obtained one Four Seasons Eternal Spring Pill. Dan Fei, that pill is truly wondrous. I didn’t dare believe it then, but my entire being seemed to rewind back to twenty years ago in a short two hours.”

“The Four Seasons Eternal Spring Pill?” Dan Fei’s moving eyes suddenly darted back and forth, and she said rapidly, “Big sister, I really must go!”

Dan Fei apologized with her words and hopped in a carriage, taking her leave like the wind.

“What’s wrong with Dan Fei today? She seems distracted and dejected. It doesn’t look like her style.” Elder Ning was completely befuddled.

Reaching the Tutor Manor in a short amount of time, Dan Fei put the items down as soon as she entered the door. She immediately went to the shrubbery in the front yard, her charming eyes searching seriously.

“It should be here, there should be no mistake. I was angry just then and randomly threw it. It should be here. Why isn’t it here?”

Dan Fei was a bit regretful. Why had she been so impulsive?

However, the pill bottle was the size of half a fist. It shouldn’t be hard to find in the shrubbery.

After searching for a while, Dan Fei’s elegant forehead was sweating slightly, beads of sweat had formed on her nose and her hair was slightly messed up. There were even some blades of grass stuck on her head.

Dan Fei suddenly remembered something.

“Oh no, can it be that, in the time I’ve been out, Aunt Lan cleaned the yard and picked up the pill bottle?”

This frightening thought made Dan Fei extremely nervous all of a sudden.

  1. Oh shit..
    It’s seams like it would be like someone said AHAHA
    That a woman would clean the yard and find the pill.. And maybe even take it! And then our beauty Dan Fey would be filled with regret. AHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHA
    If that’s so, the she deserve it.

    1. The cleaning lady is more charming than the master of the house and the people line up at her house to court this aunt and this Dan girl be like; why is there no one to see me now-a-days!!!

  2. Thanks for the chapter! I laughed so hard at her panicking in the bush I guess that guy that said the cleaning servant would find the bottle was right

  3. LOL… She says she doesn’t like people to look at her and now she wants something that makes hard not to look at her. At least that Elder Ning is honest!

    Thanks for the chapter!

  4. I have a feeling that teacher Ye knows that Jiang Chen was lying about meeting an uncommon expert. That whole discussion about Jiang had some hidden meanings within it that I can’t say that Ye thinks it would be completely believable that some random expert just happened to meet with Jiang and speak with him

    1. There is no similarity whatsoever beyond just 1 point, that both MC’s are smart.
      ZTJ has slow as hell pacing while SOTR is way faster even considering some of its more irritating chapters.
      ZTJ’s MC is calm and collected, evasive and calculating, no arrogance whatsoever. While SOTR MC allows himself to be arrogant, overbearing, commanding.
      ZTJ’s needed 120 chapters for MC to finally power-up from trash to One-Punch Man. SOTR MC stopped being trash and started being crazy in the span of a few dozen chapters.
      ZTJ author puts too much emphasis on poetic form and varied dictionary (which ended up in those annoyingly as hell written battles that make no sense with all the pretentious moves) , while SOTR author is pretty much straightforward with his writing.and simplistic. The two writing styles are completely different and each appeal to a different audience.
      Lastly, antagonists in ZTJ are more fleshed out and better written.
      So i don’t get how deep into a reality distortion field you had to walk into in order to even begin to compare these two novels. Completely different writing styles and completely different protagonists.

  5. Called it, she met her and instant regret lmao

    What I never understand is why people throw away stuff given to them? It’s free and might be useful, just shove it in a corner or something, don’t just toss it into a bush <_< I tend to save a lot of things that seem useful and I usually find a use for it months or even years later. Old pen springs, paper clips, small pieces of cardboard.

  6. Thanks for the chapter!

    The moment elder Ning’s name came up I rememberd the future-telling comments from last chapter… I was like “what? Wait, no way!” 😀 Made my day, thanks for that, whoever it was! 😀

  7. All the characters are starting to be beauties thanks to the pill, guess Genius Chen doesn’t want to retain his youthful looks and be called a bishounen like Smooth Che after practicing the Great Way of the Buddha.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  8. *Dan Fei finnaly gets ahold of the Four seasons eternal youth pill.


    Dan Fei: “It’s workin…”

    *Dan fei is in disbelief *

    Dan Fei: ” It’s working… It’s woking … It’s… WAHHHHHH!!!”

    *Dan Fei is now a toddler*
    And that concludes our adventures for today.

    Yeah, guys… I’m not gonna do anymore future seeing… Only funny funny spin offs

  9. I don’t like the way she thinks that her master is all that! Hmp! Although I could understand but I can’t agree! Jiang Chen was never rude to her but she HAD to act up. Maybe her PMS is on that time. Hopefully, she won’t be able to find the pill bottle. Hahahaha!

  10. Every person has a vain personality. Even old plain me!
    I hope that Aunt Lan used the pill! lmao

    Tutor Ye: *sees Aunt Lan*
    Who are you?
    Aunt Lan: Tutor Ye, this old me is Aunt Lan, your cleaning lady for years.
    Tutor Ye: “o; <3"

    And they fell in love and they live happily ever after..

    Thanks for the chap

  11. Friends,
    I’m not a vegan. I’m not even particularly kind. I totally object to Castration of man or animal for whatever reason though, (and believe that Vasectomy is the moral equivalent of Castration).
    This is among my strongest beliefs.
    The MC recommending Castration—not once but over and over again—put a serious roadblock to enjoying the story.
    Besides—its a hybrid. Couldn’t you find a female lion, tiger, penguin or roc to breed the damned thing to?
    Saxon Violence

    1. First… So you prefer the beast meridian to explode and then die …… than castrated?

      Second… Did you think it’s easy to find other ancient spirit beast?

      Yes it is hybrid….. But it also ancient

      1. Welp, that’s okay. It’s your point of view. It doesn’t make you less human.

        We can’t change anything about the story since we aren’t the ones writing it. Like you though, I have some issues about some wuxia/xianxia stories like rape (Chu Feng raping Ya Fei and Murong Wan and that girl whom I forgot the name) but at the end of the day, it’s a story. Or maybe I haven’t encountered I story that made me cringe with disgust. Anyhows, to each, it’s own.

        In this part though, it is medically advisable for the phoenix-dragon to be castrated to preserve its life. In castration, its testicles would be removed but the organ itself will still be there with one less function. Surely, the pros are greater than the cons in the situation that the author had written. Much like how *aherm…to those who can’t stomach gory details, please do not read further* a rotting diabetic foot needs to be cut above the knee so it won’t affect the upper part or how a cancerous part will be removed (this usually is with good prognosis) to prevent its spread as much as possible. Well, something like that.

        I’m with you in trying to find an alternative mate for it but meh. Maybe it will only mate with its own kind since its an ancient beast. *sigh* poor beast. But its life is more important at the moment.

    2. That’s what I was saying!
      Y not just give is a handjob! Maybe even a bj~
      Surely it wouldnt hurt trying?
      Rather than to chop off its kkj 🙁

  12. Have faith in Keeper of the Tianlang Library, gain eternal life. When Keeper of the Tianlang Library appears, who dares to cause strife!Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤
