Chapter 116 – Applying Medicine

Although she felt bitter and sad about it inside, she’s not someone that gives up so easily. Even if the one Nie Li likes isn’t her, she will still quietly stay by Nie Li’s side. Until the day when Nie Li pays attention to her. However, she never thought that Nie Li would use god knows what method to move into Ye Ziyun’s yard.

Could it be that even Ye Ziyun’s father, the City Lord won’t stop Nie Li? No matter how she ponders over it, Xiao Ning’er couldn’t figure it out.

Feeling the faint resentment in Xiao Ning’er’s eyes, Nie Li embarrassedly touched his head. He obviously knows about Xiao Ning’er’s feelings towards him, it’s hard to bear a beauty’s grace. Afterall, Ye Ziyun and him have love affinity of two lives. Xiao Ning’er wouldn’t be able to understand, at this point, that kind of love and death fetters.

Nie Li smilingly said, “Hehe, is there a matter that Ning’er came looking for me?”

“I just made some osmanthus cake and wanted to give them to you.” Xiao Ning’er stood there quietly, looking charming and lovely. Usually, in front of others, Xiao Ning’er has that iceberg facade;however, in front of Nie Li, she will show her rarely seen tenderness.

If it were any other guys looking at the current Xiao Ning’er, it’d be hard to not even be tempted by her.

Only now did Nie Li realise the small basket that Xiao Ning’er has been holding.

At this moment, Ye Ziyun appearing on the side pathway. Seeing Nie Li looking at herself, Ye Ziyun turned her head around, pouting.

The atmosphere suddenly became awkward.

Nie Li felt his head aching. Who knows what will happen if these two girls get together. He has never experienced such a situation before; therefore, he has no idea how to handle it.

“Let’s talk inside.” Nie Li took a step forward, suddenly feeling the fiery pain on his butt, he gasped a mouthful of air while hissing.

“Nie Li, what happened to you?” Xiao Ning’er noticed Nie Li’s strangeness and immediately supported him.

“I was beaten up, having my butt blooming.” Thinking about that rascal Ye Zong, Nie Li felt extremely angry in his heart. Ye Zong is a hypocrite, faithless vile person! He plays the rascal when he can’t win!

Ye Ziyun also felt Nie Li’s strangeness. Originally, she also wanted to show some concern for Nie Li, but seeing Xiao Ning’er immediately react to support Nie Li, she immediately turned snorting, turning her face aside. She doesn’t want to bother herself with a playboy like Nie Li!

Hearing the words “butt blooming” Xiao Ning’er’s cheeks flushed red and asked, “Who beat you up?”

“Ye Zong. In this City Lord’s Mansion, aside from him, who else dares to lay a hand on me!” Nie Li inhaled a cold air while hissing. Ye Zong, that guy is really merciless, even now, his butt still feels like it’s burning. That fella used the strength of a Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist. With Nie Li’s current cultivation now, he still couldn’t resolve it.

“The City Lord he……He hit your butt?” Xiao Ning’er’s head is totally messed up. She couldn’t understand why the City Lord would want to hit Nie Li. Even if he hits him, he shouldn’t be hitting Nie Li’s butt! Xiao Ning’er couldn’t imagine that kind of scene.

Hearing Nie Li’s words, Ye Ziyun was immediately a little nervous while looking at Nie Li.

“My father beat you again? How are you doing?”

Ye Ziyun recalled the previous incident. Her father almost killed Nie Li under anger, but what’s the reason for her father beating Nie Li again? Could it be that her father doesn’t plan on letting Nie Li go?

“Nie Li, you’d better leave quickly. My father might not let you go!” Ye Ziyun said anxiously. She’s really worried that her father might do something to Nie Li.

Nie Li shook his head and said, “Rest assured. If your father really wants to kill me, he wouldn’t just hit me on my butt. He still has something he needs me to do. This time, he couldn’t win against me and played the rascal. I never thought that your father would be so shameless. I miscalculated, and underestimated that old rascal too much!”

Hearing Nie Li’s words, Ye Ziyun had a weird expression on her face. She has no idea what happened between Nie Li and her father.

“Nie Li, I forbid you from calling my father shameless!” Ye Ziyun immediately defended Ye Zong. In her heart, Ye Zong is someone that keeps his promises. He spares no effort for the safety of Glory City, even if he were to die. Although he’s a little strict, there isn’t any problem in his character.

“Fine, I’m in the wrong.” Nie Li immediately apologized. Afterall, Ye Zong is Ye Ziyun’s father. As a daughter, Ye Ziyun naturally wouldn’t allow Nie Li to criticize Ye Zong. Although he said it this way with his mouth, he swore at Ye Zong dozens of times in his heart.

“Nie Li, how’s your injury?” Although Xiao Ning’er has no idea what happened, she knows that Nie Li is injured, and that was caused by the City Lord, Ye Zong. Ye Zong is an authentic Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualist, how badly will the injury be?

Could it be that after coming to the City Lord’s Mansion, Nie Li suffered from abuse? Thinking about it here, tears flashed within Xiao Ning’er’s eyes.

“Ning’er, I’m fine. I’m just having a little difficulty walking,” Nie Li said, after bitterly smiling for a moment.

“Nie Li, do you have any elixirs to treat the injury?” Ye Ziyun softly asked. Ye Ziyun still felt very guilty since the injury on Nie Li was caused by her father.

“I don’t have any elixirs for that, but I do have cream for it. Which one of you can help me apply it?” Nie Li glared at Ye Ziyun and chuckled.

Thinking about the injured location, both the two girls had their cheeks flush red. The place where Nie Li is wounded is the butt! Since when, in their lives, have they done something like this before?

Do they really have to help Nie Li apply the medicine cream?

“The daughter carries her father’s debts. I can only put up with the grievance.” Nie Li said, sighing.

“Nie Li, I’ll help you apply it.” Xiao Ning’er seems to have made a difficult decision. Previously, when her training had sidetracked, it was because of Nie Li that she could get well so quickly and have her cultivation raised so fast. Now that Nie Li is injured, she definitely will not shirk.

“This doesn’t seem good.” Nie Li said, embarrassedly. Although Ning’er and him are very close, they are still not to that extent yet.

After thinking awhile, Ye Ziyun solemnly said, “I’ll do it. Afterall, the injured that Nie Li suffered is caused by my father.”

Nie Li rotated his gaze between Xiao Ning’er and Ye Ziyun. He originally thought that no one would agree to it. He never imagined that the both of them would agree. His head ached from the blissfulness.

“We’ll take a look at Nie Li’s injuries first.” Xiao Ning’er knows that it’s Ye Ziyun that Nie Li is fond of. She can only use her own method and slowly change Nie Li’s heart, not fight with Ye Ziyun.

Nie Li was supported by Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er, one on his left and another on his right and entered into the building. Truth is, although he was beaten up by Ye Zong and still felt a burning pain on his butt, he did not suffered any internal injuries. From that, he could see that Ye Zong was lenient with his hands. For a cultivator, this kind of pain would subside after enduring it a while. He never thought that these two girls would really help him apply the medicine.

Nie Yu blinked her big eyes, looking at Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er. Those weird eyes seemed to have understood something.

“Xiao Yu, you stay outside.”

“Okay,” Nie Yu crisply replied, she ran out and closed the door.

A moment later, strange noises were coming out of the room.


“Ah~ Softer.”

The voice was someone high-pitched, sometimes carrying a hint of comfort. If others were to hear it, who knows what kind of thoughts they would have.

Inside the room, the two girls had their cheeks flushed red like apples. After their slender fingers got some of the medicine, they softly rubbed them on Nie Li’s butt, letting the cream absorb evenly. If they were alone here helping Nie Li to do this kind of thing, they’d be bound to be extremely embarrassed. Because of each other’s existence, they felt a lot better.

The two girls took a glimpse at each other. They couldn’t tell what the emotion was within their minds now.

Ye Ziyun’s heart is extremely complicated. As time goes by, the time Nie Li lived here gets longer and longer. She seems to be gradually used to Nie Li’s existence here. At least when Nie Li is around, she wouldn’t feel lonely. Although she knows that Nie Li likes her and her feelings for Nie Li isn’t up to that liking level, yet, she seems to have many fetters with Nie Li. At the same time, she is also aware that Xiao Ning’er is fond of Nie Li, she also didn’t want to steal other people’s love. This caused her heart to feel complex.

The trio did not speak a word. The atmosphere was charming and embarrassing.

“I remember that the two of you were playmates when you were small, right? Ziyun has always been keeping that bear pouch that Ning’er gave her.”

Nie Li was lying down on the bed, pretending to have said it accidentally.

“How do you know about that?” Ye Ziyun asked, shockingly. She really misses those childhood times. It wasn’t until later, that Xiao Ning’er suddenly didn’t come over to the City Lord’s Mansion anymore. She still remembered the words that Xiao Ning’er told her: We are people of two different worlds. You’re like a princess that lives in the City Lord’s Mansion, and I am only an ordinary girl. There’s a gap between us that can never be crossed.

Ye Ziyun has always been cherishing the bear pouch that was given to her by Xiao Ning’er. That was her most precious memory when she was a child. Because in her heart, Xiao Ning’er was her only friend. Thereafter, the only reason for Ye Ziyun to request to be in the Fighter Apprentice Class is also because of Xiao Ning’er.

Hearing the conversation between Nie Li and Ye Ziyun, Xiao Ning’er’s shoulders trembled and lowered her head. She seems to be in daze, remaining silence and not speaking.

Nie Li hissed loudly and said, “Ow~ Ning’er, it’s painful.”

“Nie Li, I’m sorry.” Xiao Ning’er immediately recovered from her daze and immediately apologized.

“It’s okay, haha.” Nie Li laughed. He seems to understand a little.

Having two girls side-by-side applying medicine for you is still an enjoyable thing.

After a moment, the cream was finished being applied. Nie Li then put on his pants. Thinking about the rascal Ye Zong, he resented him to the point that his teeth were itching. It’s a pity that he is only in the body of a thirteen-fourteen year old kid. Adding on to the fact that he’s Ye Ziyun’s father, Nie Li couldn’t do anything to him. Unless Ye Zong doesn’t interfere in the matter between Ye Ziyun and himself, he will definitely take revenge for it.

For the next few days, not knowing for what reason, perhaps she’s worried about Nie Li, Xiao Ning’er has been coming over frequently to deliver all kinds of food to Nie Li. She’ll also be together with Nie Li and Ye Ziyun in the yard to train.

  1. Thanks for the chapter XD

    I kinda wish that Nie Li would just properly reject the girl, or just tell her in front of Ye Ziyun that he could only love Ye Ziyun.

    He loves her and I respect that (though to be fair, outside of one knowing she likes him, they don’t seem too different really, just suffer through different situations). He should tell Ning Er’ that he can’t accept her food anymore.

    She still has some hope, and he isn’t breaking it. That is just cruel.

    That said, I feel it is unfair that Nie Li is being called a playboy just because a few girls fell for him. He hasn’t actually done anything to be called that. He is actually being loyal, so it’s just too unfair.

    1. but i hope he isn’t loyal, the two girls become close friends and agree to share, he’s all “noo, only ye ziyun for me” and then ye ziyun is all “kyaaa! how can you be so cruel to my sister” i don’t want a proper harem, just the two of them

      1. Im hoping it’s going that way too.
        ISSTH bugged me with that chick in the forging sect. He completely ignored her AND the one he supposedly agreed to marry in another sect.
        Here we have 2 childhood friends in a lovely little triangle. Just keep both if they are willing. Don’t push one away just because you can’t conceive of having both. I highly doubt the love of his life would mind him having her only other friend become part of their little family.

    2. he does not want to lose Ning Er, his previous life , Ning Er was alone and forced to marry someone then she ran/lost. He wants to prevent it and do not lose his bond with her. Moreover, Ye Ziyun does not show any interest to him, she always find sth to complain and I think, the fact that she has no friend and no one around her, she is willing to spend her time with him and tolerate his sticky attitude. Maybe she may love him future but I do not want him to force her more while Ning Er is there for him. She understands him more than Ziyun and she can follow him till the end. ( I do not like Ye Ziyun`s character. )

      1. One thing you have to remember is that other than Nie Li has experience basically making him an adult, but the two girls are actually 13-14 which if i remember was a pretty goofy time in the development of most of my peers.

    3. Nie Li’s obligations towards Xiao Ning have already ended. He outright told her he liked Ye Ziyun. Even if he was even more brutally honest and said something like he’d never love anyone else, people still view him as just a 13 y/o kid. The feelings of kids that age change at the drop of the hat.

      Not accepting her food or whatever would just be intentionally pushing her away and distancing himself. He can’t do that, as she’s one of the comrades he’s training to save Glory City and fight the Sage Emperor in the future. So, he kinda has to get close to Ning Er and I imagine he wants to treat her like a sister in the same way he treats Du Ze and Lu Piao as brothers.

      1. But that is too half-assed. He can’t have both, that is just being too greedy. He has to chose between rejecting her and probably ending their friendship or accepting her feelings and rejecting the other. If he is indecisive and drags her along, she will waste her time chasing and might regret the time she spent doing it in the future. And that is just cruel. That is the disadvantage in being in a relationship. You can’t be half-assed or you might lose both. Of course, we can have a harem ending too. That is the advantage of dragging both along. lol

    4. For Nie Li to go out his way to bring that up himself in the front of both of them would be very cruel for Xiao Ning Er. Ye Ziyun probably wont forgive Nei Li for a long time and Ning Er may distance herself which would mean that Nie Li cant train either of them properly and will cause a problem defending glory city and later on defeating the sage emperor
      They talk enough about Nie Yu but they dont actually use her.
      Although it isnt fair to call him a play boy but in that type of setting its not usual for girls to chase guys unless the guys are playing with them (at least in the asian setting Europe and European sub countires had different standards in the same type era. which is largely what most people attribute to men vs women today). Which is why they jump to assume.

      1. I think it’s implied that Nie Li has made it clear to Xiao Ning that he will only love Ye Ziyun. The problem is that Xiao Ning has made it her resolution to follow Nie Li for the rest of her life even if he isn’t willing to marry her. Add to that Nie Li still has repect for Xiao Ning and wants to change her previous fate creates a situation like this.

        Though I think that if the author changed the story a bit he could make it were Nie Li could marry both of them. For instance in the past people married more then one wife because there were lots of wars and a lot of the men would die from it and the women couldn’t support themselves and would be in immense poverty by themselves; so that the imbalance between the number of men and women would cause for it to be justified to have more then one wife. So I think if the author changed the world to be similar to this image then the author could make it were taking both characters as a wife an acceptable thing.

        But then again the author might have something else in mind.

    5. Good spunking for MC..hahaha

      Actually the MC is a rascal and shameless what we can do if he’s a two timer after all. If he truly love ziyun that much he make it clear to ninger.. Still considering..

  2. Thanks for the translations –>!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!<–

    116 chapters and in the story how long has been? 3 months? Damn, the MC is super fast in pretty much everything!

  3. Thanks for the chapter, Thyaeria and Nicholas H! Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤

  4. I really hope he doesn’t get Ye Ziyun. Honestly. With the way he acts toward her, like a douche bag, he doesn’t deserve her. I will change my opinion if his behavior changes, but I doubt he’ll stop acting like a spoiled brat.

    If the author had any balls, he would make it so they don’t get together.

    But the author has no balls, and would never try to take a different, never before, unexplored route, where he doesn’t get the girl, and them being destined together was only in the previous timeline, but this timeline is different.

    I mean, wouldn’t the shitty love drama be more interesting if they don’t fall in love, and no matter how much he loves her, he has to leave her; because either A: he is the reason for her death, or B: They really weren’t true lovers, or that he realizes he only wants to possess her, and that he doesn’t really love her.
    And they remain friends, but along the way she meets her actually truly destined love, and then he takes a long time to come to grips with it, because although they did part, he never really got over it, his love I mean.

    And slowly, all the girls in his harem move away from him, because their love was only superficially deep, and realized they had no compatibility with each other. And then because Nie Li couldn’t take it, he had to separate from all of them, because he couldn’t be “just friends” with him, and then he descends into loneliness.
    Then he begins to doubt whether he really understood what love was, and in his great loneliness and depression, he gets seduced by the dark side, and finds a dark lover. This darkness slowly arises in him, because that book which let him go back in time was actually the tome for which the evil demon king that brings nothing but destruction used to slowly corrupt Nie Li, thus allowing him to reincarnate into the mortal world.
    And then slowly becoming corrupted, his friends come to rescue him, and try to remind him that they are still friends, and who he really was, which was a good guy, and that no matter what, even if they didn’t love him romantically, they love him like a family.
    But it was already too late, and he ended up killing them all, before he turned back from the dark side, and in his rage, he turned to lunacy in what he had done, something he couldn’t recover from.
    And at this moment, when he was at his weakness he fully becomes the evil demon god, his soul, shattered, and rains death upon the universe.

    And then he wakes up in class again, at 11 years old, listening to the same old lecture that he heard the first time.

    And he decided to end it before it was too late and commit suicide right then and there.

    Uhh… where was I going with this again?

    Oh yeah…

    Nie Li should stop acting like a spoiled brat.


    1. You sir are a GENIUS…………. Finally someone who isn’t blind MC lover…. most of the Wuxiaworld novels follow the same MC personality, mostly spoiled brats …. based on the last chapter of how the father butt smacked this little devil, perhaps this author would grow some balls and follow a different course: “MC realizes he only wants to possess her, and that he doesn’t really love her.” and “girls in his harem move away from him, because their love was only superficially deep, and realized they had no compatibility with each other” ………. But I feel he is going for polygamy, he introduced the idea a some chapters back, and then he kept enforcing that its normal, and I feel that he did that in mind for that kind of ending

    2. Right, it would really become a great novel if the author really has balls and do something dark like that.
      He should realize that starting over is not necessarily a good thing.

    3. As for me Nei Li should change his arrogant attitude
      well yeah sometimes it’s okay to be arrogant but with a bit respect I mean not all grownup out there needs to kneel down to him cause he just happen to know more.. he needs to learn how to be humble

    4. You know what happens, when edgelord kiddies write a novel/book?

      Star Wars Episode I-III. That happens. 😉

      While I kind of understand your grief over the mostly one-dimensional portrayal of Wuxia/Xanxia-protagonists, it doesn’t help any story to make it dark just to be dark/different. If author-insert meets evil stupid nothing good comes out of it.

  5. i only hope he takes responsibility for Ning’er and the rest’s feelings he can only blame himself for how this is turning out im sure he has the capability to at least that much or the convictions he had when he was rebirthed don’t mean much.

    as for how overbearing he’s being towards Ye Ziyun he watched her die then spent a large amount of time wandering gaining knowledge only in the end to die by the very family forsaked Glory City. if you watched the one you loved die and suddenly got a second chance to do it over to prevent her from dying. I imagine that your treatment of him/her would be seen as overbearing. he also has to deal with memories that only he has. his emnity with the sacred family may seem unfounded but nobody has seen what he has no one has experienced what he did. of course he’s gonna be salty with Ye Zong like he said son-in-laws and fathers will always be enemies, also he’s only taking revenge for Ye Yiyun.

    has for his lack of respect for his elders he’s barely out of his teens. he has 100’s of years worth of knowledge. nobody is on his level and he’s not completely disrespectful he just pay’s back his debt
