Chapter 206: After Joy Comes Sadness for Ye Dai

“Oh no, I can’t seem to gather my true qi!”

“Mm? Something’s wrong. My spirit ocean seems to have sucked in something!”

“Ah, my true qi can’t be gathered either!”

Everyone on Ye Dai’s side started yelling all of a sudden.

Ye Dai’s face also greatly changed, because he too discovered that he couldn’t summon his true qi. Not only his men, but even he himself had an empty dantian, as if his true qi was locked by something and he couldn’t gather the slightest bit of it.

Chen Li’s face had drastically changed. It was as if he was a duck whose throat was being clutched by a hunter as he emitted raspy sounds, “Jiang Chen, you used poison?”

“Congratulations, you’ve guessed correctly. Chen Li, is it? How many times the agreed upon rate do you think you can get now?” Jiang Chen had a shadow of smile on his face.

Chen Li’s disposition was ashen faced as his arrogant flames seemed to have been directly put out with a bucket of cold water. His face was filled with a terrified look, “Jiang Chen, if… if you dare kill me, the Precious Tree Sect will never let you go.”

Jiang Chen’s face darkened, “Give me a reason not to kill you.”

“I… ” Chen Li’s first notion was to say that ‘I’m a genius of the Precious Tree Sect and a disciple of the Sect. You’d be making yourself out to be an enemy of the Sect if you killed me.

However, he wasn’t a complete idiot after all. Those sorts of weak threats weren’t useful in a moment like this.

You wanted to kill the opponent first and now you were caught in their plot. Why would they not kill you now because of a few threats? How was that possible at all?

“Jiang Chen, tell me what you want. I will bring it out if I can. We have no enmity between us and we’d both be dying because of wealth. I kill you because I’ve been hired by another and because I seek wealth. If you kill me, there’s nothing in it for you, so why bother? You can gain great benefits if you don’t kill me. I can also swear to the heavens that I’ll never seek revenge on you and cause trouble.”

One had to say that Chen Li was a very practical person. When he saw that the circumstances weren’t looking right, he would immediately beg for mercy and present his soft side. He wouldn’t dither about at all.

“I can, not kill you. I don’t need your ransom money and I don’t need you to swear an oath to the heavens. I only have one request.”

“Please tell me!” Chen Li was overjoyed and rushed Jiang Chen. “Tell me, I can agree to any request.”

“Only one of you can leave this place alive. I’ll let you go if you kill them all.” Jiang Chen said with a faint smile.

“Do you mean that?”

“Do I look like someone who jokes?” Jiang Chen faintly asked.

Dan Fei walked up at this time. “Jiang Chen, please give me some face and let them go this time.”

Jiang Chen was dumbfounded. “Why?”

Dan Fei said faintly, “Just tell me if you agree or not!”

Jiang Chen was momentarily struck speechless.

“If you kill them now, it’ll be easily traced back to you when we leave. You’ll be a public enemy of the Skylaurel Kingdom then. Even if you have the Skylaurel Kingdom Medallion, it wouldn’t help you. That Chen Li is a disciple of the Precious Tree Sect. It’ll be troublesome if you kill a disciple of the Sect.”

Dan Fei looked at Ye Dai. “I’ll be sure to report to the lordmaster the truth that Ye Dai wanted to kill his own brothers. His days as first prince are numbered. His enemies will naturally take care of him then, why dirty your hands?”

Jiang Chen was of a mind to turn her down, but Dan Fei was quite resolute in her request. He could only look at Ye Rong with resignation, “Fourth prince, I will no longer involve myself in this matter. You do as you see fit.”

Ye Rong looked ruefully at Dan Fei and decided to make a friendly gesture at no extra cost to himself. “Sister Dan Fei, I’ll listen to you. However, I’m afraid that Ye Dai is unwilling to give up and he will still make trouble for us when we leave this mountain valley.”

Dan Fei didn’t allow Ye Dai to be killed also because she was thinking of past history. Whether it was Ye Dai or Ye Zheng, they had both received tutelage from the lordmaster and they had grown up a step at a time in his care.

Although Dan Fei wasn’t kindly disposed towards them, and she disliked them even, she still wasn’t willing to see them die here.

Ye Rong was the same as Jiang Chen in that he was more than unwilling to see the situation develop thus. However, the greatest difference between him and Ye Dai was that he could contain his anger of the moment.

Since Dan Fei had promised that she would make a report to the lordmaster when they got out, Ye Dai was as good as nothing. As long as Ye Dai was stripped of his titles, he, Ye Rong’s, greatest competitor was no more.

Since Ye Dai was no longer a threat to him making a play for the throne, there would be more than enough chances to kill him in the future even if Ye Rong didn’t kill him today.

Ye Dai thought he was dead without a doubt and didn’t hold any hope. When he suddenly heard that Dan Fei was begging for mercy on his behalf, he was overjoyed.

“Number four, don’t kill me. Anything is yours if you don’t kill me. I promise that I won’t contest for the position of Crown Prince when we leave, and that I’ll be a powerless royal who doesn’t inquire after matters of politics in the future. I can also swear to the heavens that I will never seek revenge for what happened today and I will never cause trouble again.”

Ye Rong’s brow creased. “It’s not that I’m not killing you, it is because sister Dan Fei is sparing your dog of a life.”

Dan Fei also felt disgusted by Ye Dai’s ugly display. “Ye Dai, conduct yourself well. You’re being let off the hook this time because I’m begging for mercy for you on the lordmaster’s behalf. You won’t be that lucky next time.”

“Yes yes, sister Dan Fei, it’s all my fault. My mind was in a haze. I was blinded by power and I will absolutely turn over a new leaf when we leave.”

Jiang Chen shook his head with resignation. Bad habits could never be changed, just like a stray dog that would always resort to eating sh*t if it had nothing else to eat. Ye Dai was just that sort of dog.

It was actually allowing latent danger to exist if they let this kind of person go. According to Jiang Chen’s intentions, killing him with one strike would be the cleanest way to handle this.

However, since Dan Fei’s words had come to this point, Jiang Chen couldn’t very well insist on still moving forward. After all, this was still nominally Ye Rong’s decision.

If Ye Rong could bear to do so, then why wouldn’t he, Jiang Chen, be able to?

Ye Dai was just a prancing clown at the end of the day. Jiang Chen wasn’t afraid of him at all, and his vision didn’t rest on the layout of the single city and pond that was the Skylaurel Kingdom.

Honestly speaking, Jiang Chen didn’t have to fear that Precious Tree Sect disciple even if he hadn’t used poison.

Dan Fei looked a bit apologetically at Jiang Chen. She knew that her request was a bit out of bounds. She’d accomplished nothing in this battle. So logically speaking, she had no right to be making such a request of Jiang Chen.

“Thank you.” Dan Fei walked close to Jiang Chen and spoke in a low voice.

“It’s nothing.” Jiang Chen wasn’t a person who was mindful of personal gains and losses. The Northern Palace disciple he hated the most was dead, and so, the great majority of his anger had been dissipated.

“Let’s go.” Ye Rong also walked close to Jiang Chen. “Jiang Chen, it’s all thank to you this time. Otherwise, the consequences would have been unbearable to contemplate.”

Ye Rong’s heart still fluttered a bit with fear when he thought about what had happened. He’d been in the throes of despair with what happened today already and hadn’t dreamed that he’d be able to make it out alive. He was prepared to fight to the death.

He didn’t think that matters would suddenly develop in this direction and that a one eighty turn would suddenly occur.

The first prince had been strutting with pride and he thought that victory was within his grasp when he’d been suddenly slapped down.

And Ye Rong, who’d been slated for a sure death, had turned into the final victor. However, Ye Rong didn’t dare style himself as the victor as he knew that all of this was due to Jiang Chen.

Without Jiang Chen, they’d probably all be cold, hard corpses by now.

Although he spared their lives, Jiang Chen hadn’t planned on curing their poison. It was a good thing that the poison wouldn’t last long and it would automatically disperse after roughly two hours.

Lin Qianli and Ye Rong’s two personal guards showed no mercy however, as they made of with all of Ye Dai and Ye Zheng’s hunting trophies.

They’d spared the people, but they would have to still take some interest.

Even Ye Rong didn’t stop them.

Ye Dai and the others had retained their lives, how would they dare erupt in hostilities with Ye Rong’s men over a bit of personal belongings? They all felt indignant but they didn’t dare voice it as they docilely handled over their goods.

When the group of people walked out of the valley, Ye Rong was in a fantastic mood. Misfortune had come as a blessing in disguise. He never would’ve thought that they’d come in chasing a spirit creature but would end up precipitating all those events to happen.

They’d truly reaped rich rewards this time, and he wasn’t thinking about the hunting trophies that they had taken from Ye Dai. Ye Rong didn’t care about those gains at all.

His greatest gain was that he’d defeated Ye Dai. Clearing the biggest obstacle in the war to be Crown Prince was the greatest gain of all.

The group of them walked forward when Xue Tong, scouting the road ahead, suddenly quickly dashed back. He was carrying something in his hand. It was an exceedingly small spirit creature and it’d seemed to be tortured by someone. There were countless numbers of injuries on its body and it dripped blood along the way. It appeared to be dead for a long while.

“Young master, we discovered this up ahead. The injuries of this spirit creature are quite bizarre. It looks like someone’s purposefully tortured it to death.”

About fifty or sixty meters from the mountain valley, second prince Ye Qiao looked in a carefree manner at the mountain valley.

“Ling Xuan, is there any new intelligence?”

“In response to the second prince, the latest intelligence is that the first prince and third prince have already met up and they are heading to the mountain valley. It looks like the two parties will meet up.”

Ye Qiao’s demeanor was leisurely. “Good, good. The heavens really are helping me, hahaha.”

“Remember, infuriate that pack of Goldbiter Rats at all costs. You must spark a horde of rats to the greatest degree possible and lure them to that valley. We’re going to clear out the lot of them without using a single soldier or pawn from our side.”

A ruthless light shot out of second prince Ye Qiao’s eyes.

“Ling Shi, go with Ling Feng. Particularly Ling Feng, he’s well versed in the habits of spirit creatures and he knows how to madden them. He knows even more about how to incite a horde of beasts and he knows how to lead them to the mountain valley.”

Ye Qiao nodded in satisfaction. “It’s said that soldiers are expensive because they’re elite and not because of their numbers. Ye Dai is an idiot because he always brings a huge pack of practitioners with him and he always spends money wrongly to hire those sect disciples, but he still ends up with a face full of dust every time. He has a good background and he is used to using great power to oppress his enemies, but he forgot that the true practitioners, the truly superior ones, find their brains more useful than force!”

“The second prince is wise!” Ling Xuan also smiled. “It was our luck that allowed us to discover the Goldbiter Rats’ nest.”

“Alright, it’s about time for us to retreat. Once the horde of rats is set into motion, they’ll be absolutely and incredibly destructive. It’s likely that nothing within a radius of a hundred li will be safe. Notify Ling Shi and Ling Feng to be careful of their safety. Remember to leave methods of contact so they can reconvene with the team as fast as possible.”

Ye Qiao retracted the smile on his face as he cast a final look in the southwestern direction with his sinister look. He laughed lightly as he said, “Ye Dai, Ye Rong, and you idiot Ye Zheng, I hope you aren’t my brothers in your next life. Even if you reincarnated ten times, you’re destined to lose if you fight me.”

“I, Ye Qiao, am the true candidate for Crown Prince. The only candidate!”

74 thoughts on “SOTR Chapter 206” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

      1. you JUST officially hated her? shes WRECKLESSS and with ALL the knowledge shes been fed, DOESN”T understand the ways of the world yet? YET always saying shes a very intelligent person? sheesh.

      2. Heh, I officially started hating her after she acted pretentious in this trial and didn’t listen to the mc at all, then it just got worse and worse. Now she’s even talking bullshit, I remember her saying how the mc was naive about some stuff, but she’s freaking naive about almost everything, seems she has been spoon-fed information by that spirit king and doesn’t have any real intelligence herself.

  1. Everytime Dan Fei does something dumb im like ok i hate her now. Then she is fine again for a short period of time and THEN she screws everything all over.
    Why does the author have to make her such a hateful character?
    I dont understand.
    She had potential but its all ogre nau.

    1. If people in modern society looked at you saying those words, they must think you’re screwed up, lol. She only doesn’t want to see them dead because she is an acquaintance with them. That’s fine to hear, because most people are like that. If you acquaintances with them, you don’t want to see them dead, even if you dislike them. Most people believe killing can be avoided (and it’s true) but in these stories, characters are dumbed down to the point where all they can see is killing. -shrug-

      1. Logic only makes sense in the proper environment. Using our modern day morals in a story that takes place in a different world is pointless. We know from reading that her view in naive and leads to people getting killed for being too soft-hearted.

        1. Touche to that! Which is why, I do not like Dan Fei. *sigh* Then again, this is how the author made her to be.

          Oh well. Off to rewatch Koruko no Basuke. I want to release this annoying feeling towards that stupid Dan Fei! Hmp! Hmp!

  2. There’s no reason not to hate her. So far, she haven’t done anything that benefit Jiang Chen at all despite him helping her many time. Actually, she harm Jiang Chen quite a lot. What Jiang Chen help her with? He help her father figure solve his dilemma, give her pill of youth, help find baby spirit beast, and save her life, TWICE! Have she give him anything useful? no, lord master is the one giving Jiang Chen medallion. She bring him into this realm? It make everyone jealous of him and he gonna go with the prince anyway. Then when they are in this realm, what did she do? Make him protect her, try to demand him to collect and carry all the loot, curse at him both out-loud and mentally, use sleeping gas on him and draw on his face, do stupid things that almost got them both kill, told him to let the enemy whom he subdue without her lifting a finger. Oh not to mention, she just freaking say that she will tell lordmaster of 1st prince misdeed right in front of him before letting him go which practically screaming “you must silent me after the poison effect is gone or you’ll be screw after we left” Yeah, that’s such a great idea. Anyway, I should stop ranting.

    1. Me. Too. I ranted so hard internally after this chapter lol. Probably hit me harder because I’d been so electrified by the dialogue in the chapter before.

    2. Thank god someone elaborated every single stupidity she did. Well said. Getting her butt slapped 8 times doesn’t make up for all the trouble she brought to Jiang Chen.

    3. Let’s not forget how she ignored his opinions, was haughty and thought herself as superior(especially when it comes to spirit beasts, an area the mc has already proven to be more superior in compared to her, even she should know that), and then almost got herself and the mc killed. Then when he, despite her idiotic acts, saved her and she regretted not listening to him and following his advice, she ignores his directions again and just keeps on waiting, then he ONCE AGAIN tells her to run away the next time they meet, and what does she do? Yeah, that’s right, she ignores him again and just stays there watching and almost gets killed off again while repeatedly destroying the mcs plans and making things more difficult and dangerous.

      Oh, and I think the mc saved her 3 times… Once when she was about to be killed by that beast after just stealing the babies, then again when she stood like an idiot close to it with the babies and was almost smashed to death and would’ve been if the mc didn’t use his greatest attacks on it. Then the third time is when he saved her from poison.

  3. To clarify:
    Dan Fei can now bear witness that Jiang Chen and Ye Rong left Ye Dai alive and well (though powerless) and thus are reasonably blameless about the events that followed. After all, it is not their fault that someone else stirred up a plague of rats to sweep through the valley.

    So, her soft-hearted nativity serves as a stroke of fortune, at least.

  4. Man, the hell is wrong with all of you. Even Jiang Chen, within the story, doesn’t care enough to kill them right here – he’s well aware that he doesn’t need to personally act here, Ye Dai’s not going to be a threat in the future anyway. Heck, Dan Fei’s actions aren’t necessarily bad in the first place – if Ye Rong survives this event, he’s automatically going to be made Crown Prince, so Ye Dai can no longer pose much of a threat in such a situation. Even in the text it’s noted that Ye Dai could then be dealt with easily afterwards by him, if he makes problems. Moreover, with that, Jiang Chen’s hands are clean – no one can then treat him as having killed Precious Tree Sect disciples (even if the damage and threat would have been relatively minor, it’s better not to deal with it).

    You guys really need to lay off the Xianxia for some time. Your conclusions are getting twisted.:/

    1. Um… you haven’t read xianxia or something? Our conclusions are based off the usual xianxia attitudes. There is no “minor losses” with xianxia villains. They don’t just “give up”. If they let Ye Dai go, he will try to kill them. He has influence second to none save Dan Fei and the Lordmaster. He is a major threat while alive.

      Dan Fei still has done nothing to help the MC, and her actions have endangered his life 3 times.

    2. We aren’t getting twisted, we just understand what morals apply where. We are aware that this is a story set in a different world and this is not our world so our modern day morals don’t apply.

    3. These people like to get their panties in a twist because they’re genre savvy. It’s like when they all started whining and calling Yi Yun an idiot for not burning STN’s body to ash. “Why didn’t he torture him, kill him, burn the body into ashes, and throw the ashes off the bridge! Yi Yun is so stupid. Now he might come back.” So what if Ye Dai comes after them again? He’s a clown to the MC that isn’t a threat. He’s only a threat to the 4th prince until they leave but not if he’s with the MC. Do you think they have the guts to go after the MC again after barely escaping with their lives? After the Northern Palace guy was killed in a second? The Tree Sect guy certainly has no reason to risk it and the MC can kill anyone else instantly.

      1. Problem is, he treats the Fourth Prince as a friend hence he will help out if he is attacked in the dark (WHICH WILL HAPPEN BECAUSE YE DAI IS LEFT ALIVE).

        On top of that, if Ye Dai is inclined enough, he can also use all his influence to hire someone to kill Jian Chen. Ye Dai’s family is the second most powerful family in a kingdom that is greater than ALL OTHER KINGDOMS which means they have a reserve of special items that would make even Spirit Kings thirsty let alone a Third or Sixth level spirit practitioner needed to kill off Jian Chen.

        1. We are straight up told in the chapter this isn’t a concern. The very power he relies on to get these people working for him won’t be available for him when he leaves. And even with that power, he can only get the dregs of the sect to work for him, and that’s after paying them tons of cash.

          Ye Dai is effectively neutered once Ye Rong is made the Crown Prince. At that point, the power in the situation is in Ye Rong’s hands. That influence? Means all of nothing (and frankly, he didn’t have that kind of influence even back then, if you’d notice – Jiang Chen was his enemy, he tried to take him out, he failed). You’re talking about a reserve of special items he has no access to, and practitioners who won’t give him the time of day (the best he could manage for a major event he was prepared for beforehand was … a second level practitioner).

          Effectively, you’re exaggerating the threat and ignoring a direct statement in the story. Moreover, the people with Ye Dai involve many who are of the Precious Tree Sect. When you think about it, killing them is needless trouble if they’re not going to be threats in the future – which in this case, they likely aren’t. As also seen in the future chapter, they can, if nothing else, serve as convenient tools by which to divert threats to them.

          As for the one who said that we *should* rely on Xianxia attitudes to determine this above … er, rather than use genre conceits, why not actually look at the situation and the pros and cons of the action directly? I’m not even using ‘modern morality’, just a rudimentary analysis of the situation. See, this is why I say people really need to stop getting too invested in Xianxia, it twists the conclusions you reach.

          1. Do you think Jiang Chen is fu*king Li Qie from Emperors Domination? The first prince has many followers and they are isolated in this secret realm. Jiang Chens strength isn’t even close enough to be so nonchalant against all the opponents.

            There will be plenty of possiblities to kill Jiang Chen, the 4th prince or his followers.

            After all, the poison wears off in just 2 hours.

    4. Nah, even if they can track the events back to him somehow if he kills them himself, he could get that sect disciple to do it or something. Even if he couldn’t, he can just knock them unconscious, use some drugs on them to make them sleep deeply and then throw them into a spirit beast den. Let’s see if they can survive then. I mean, they died from spirit beasts, right? He didn’t kill them himself even if he helped out somewhat 😀

      You need to consider the world they’re in. They won’t stop unless he’s dead and will be a major danger to everyone around him, they should die.

  5. yeah kill em all Ye Qiao, the one true Crown Prince….
    Jiang Chen is overestimating himself, if not becoz of plot armor you will surely die in the next chapter.

    Thanks for the chapter

  6. I don’t hate Dan Fei neither i like her.
    She just an sometimes-idiot and doted girl. ^^’
    Maybe the author like Dan Fei Girl-type. XD

    For the moment, i prefer Eastern Gouyu to Dan Fei. ( Too bad there will not have Gouyu train. ^^)
    Even Eastern Zhiruo is smarter than Dan Fei. :p
    Besides i didn’t like when the MC told that Zhiruo should not have babies.
    It is like that we tell that Hemophilie people can not have babies. XD
    Ok, ying issue people can not fight but they can rise their wisdom and intelligence.
    Jiang Chen should know this fact.

    I still enjoy to read SOTR. ^^
    Many thanks for theses chapters Etvolare! 🙂

    1. He just said that the condition is hereditary. If she can accept that acknowledge that her kids will have the same condition and so forth then she can have kids.

    2. You have a, according to me, horrible taste in girls… All these negative comments can testify for that. I think you’d like japanese novels with their abusive, tsundere-esque, violent and bossy women who are actually quite retarded. Because they’re pretty much identical to this girl

    1. It’s stupid to start with. He likes Dan Fei so why would he torture her? She also just saved his dog life. He’d pretty much have to give up on living to do that. Not to mention I think her cultivation is in the Spirit Realm while his isn’t.

      1. Sexual assault(rape) can be considered both as humiliation and torture. He’s twisted and all, so why wouldn’t he want to do it? He’s not after her as a person, just her body.

  7. Dan Fei is becoming annoying as the story progesses! If Jiang Chen was smart, he should sever all ties with this witch. There should be more Princess Gouyu’s appearances, and less of Dan Fei?

    1. If i remember, theses chapters are free. ^^’
      Etvolare has her IRL and her new job.
      If she give us 7 or 10 chapters, it is the same thing. We should thank her.

      You can donate too so we can have another chapters. :3
      Me and the other readers will thank you too. 😉

    2. Er. Chapter 100 got a 10 chapter release. I happen to be moving across the world and finding an apartment and starting a new job at this time. You wanna do the same and tell me how you do? 😀

          1. Thanks for the consideration, I’m back at it

            Also thank you for all your hard work, I hope you know how awesome you are!

    3. Marc. How do you think translation happens?
      Does someone turn on a machine and it spits out chapters like cherry pits?
      Does someone read a chapter while writing down it’s translation fluently?
      Or Does someone actually have to work to carefully render an understandable translation of each individual sentence?
      Any translator, especially those translating from Chinese, would be able to tell you that it is not the first, nor the second, but the last, especially when the original Chinese isn’t so easy.
      Now someone takes the time throughout her busy life to actually ensure that she releases septuple the amount she would normally do, pulling all-nighters while working busily throughout the day.
      Not that she is doing it expecting any form of reward, no, it’s all free, only costing you some internet connection. The least one could do is say thanks.
      But here you are, *complaining*, that’s it’s not enough, not a positive word spoken about what *is* done, just what *is not*. You want more, it doesn’t matter what’s happening to the one doing it, just that you get more.

      I pity your self-centered egotistical non-thinking self.

  8. My two cents is this.

    After this event, if everyone leaves safely, Ye Dai’s life ambition is effectively over. But. He will still have the most resources at his fingertips and the most connections. To allow someone with that much wealth, who is currently at his lowest, survive. Lunacy. He has the assets to pay for any assassin to make attempts on their lives until he is stopped. By then it may be too late.

    Even if they strip him of his wealth, with his connections, he will find a means to an ends.

    1. If his connections are that great then why not just kill his father and seize the throne? Once he loses his position he’ll naturally fall behind in all things. What assassin is so good that they can act wildly in the royal capital? Tutor Ye is also strong enough to beat any Precious Tree Sect disciple that comes down.

      1. How long will it take for him to fall behind? He has been ahead in all things for years and has been planning to take over all sixteen kingdoms when he becomes king. It would take many months for his wealth to be exceeded.

        Tutor Ye is not almighty, nor does he interfere with the Prince’s on most occasions. But even so, after losing everything, why would Ye Dai care about Tutor Ye. If he can no longer be King, why not go out and massacre as many of his siblings. All he has to do is pick the perfect moment.

  9. I don’t see anything too bad. Like Jiang Chen said, Ye Dai is a clown. There is potential for harm but not killing them brings less hassle for Jiang Chen overall, at least if they don’t do anything until they get out of the maze anyway. And Jiang Chen isn’t stupid or weak enough to fall for their stupid little schemes. Killing them would bring troubles of it’s own after all.

    1. You’re forgetting that even if Ye Dai loses reputation he still has incredible wealth and connections. Jiang Chen would be ok but I can’t say the same about the people around him, specially Ye Rong since Ye Dai can very easily either frame Jiang Chen’s friends for a serious crime or overwhelm them with assassination attempts. My guess is Ye Dai will kill Ye Zheng and blame Ye Rong with sometihng like “Yes we did have aggrievances at the Maze Hunt Realm but both me and Ye Zheng apologized and moved on with our lives but then Ye Rong started hunting us one by one and even killed my party’s Liu Can”

      1. That scenario is nonsense. Ye Rong is likely to travel with Jiang Chen now. The girl will just mention that Ye Rong was with them the entire time and that JC killed Liu Can. Your plan relies on Ye Dai attacking and killing Dan Fei or it’s just useless talk. Problem is that she’s under JC’s protection. Basically be lucky that you’re not a xiaxian villain because your scheming needs work.

  10. Te Dai will be a pain in the ass if and only if he gets out alive… Let’s not forget about the rat horde and that they are still under the influece of the poison so Ye Dai and his group will Most likely die.

    Tnx 4 the chapter ??

  11. Am I the only one who didnt get it how the hell did the MC poison all of them at once?
    I like Dan Fei, I think it’s more realistic to have characters with flaws and who follow their emotions, I mean, MC is awesome all Superman style, but sometimes he looks like a freaking robot, he has no passion for anything but martial arts, she was being silly, she obviously likes him, she was also trying to show off when she acted alone on the spiritual beast, even though she is older than him, she is like a child to him. This chapter she spared the prince out of pity, I don’t hate her at all, I think it’s nice when the characters make mistakes and develop along the story.

    1. Jiang Chen is a robot? He has no passion for anything but martial arts? Are we reading the same novel? You make it sound like Jiang Chen is an emotionless son of a b*tch who would forsake everything for martial arts when he’s one of the most reasonable characters in this novel.

      Realistic? There’s too many flaws in her characterization that makes it her rather unrealistic. To sum it up, she have tons of persona a.k.a. multiple personalities. Sometimes she’s so smart she figures everything. Sometimes she’s so dumb they almost died several times. Sometimes she’s childish. Sometimes she’s mature etc. etc. It’s fine if the author clearly described her having a dissociative identity disorder but she doesn’t. I don’t even understand what the author wants with Da Fei making her the jack-of-all-personas. Her character changes in a spark of a moment. Her character is a mess. Where’s the “realistic” part here?

      Flaws? You think she’s only the character with flaws? Almost all the characters here have flaws including Jiang Chen, but their flaws isn’t stupid as hers. Should I list them all? I can but it would be a wall of text. I’ll leave that for you and others to think and discern.
