Chapter 174 – Hide as much as possible

Xiao Ning’er, who has merged with her Heavenly Lightning Sparrow, proudly looked from high up.

What qualifications does a scumbag like Shen Fei have to become her husband? Xiao Ning’er’s mind flashed with a figure. She is very proud in her heart, she will not heed the arrangements of her family, nor will she become someone’s vassel. Only that person is someone she can rely on full heartedly.

Shen Fei was dizzy from the lightning bolt that had hit him. He shook his head, trying to get up; however, an even thicker lightning bolt shot him back down immediately.

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Shen Fei was constantly being blown away, his Scarlet Black Tiger wasn’t on the same level as the Heavenly Lightning Sparrow. All the pent up anger that Xiao Ning’er had accumulated all these years was unleashed. She has no intentions to be lenient towards Shen Fei.

Before Shen Fei could recover, he was hit by lightning again and again. That ripping pain has already made him forget where he was.

“Xiao Ning’er, you dare to lay a hand on me?! My Sacred Family will definitely not let you off!” at the start of it, Shen Fei was still talking back. But after being hit by bolts of lightning in a continuous series, his soul force completely collapsed. That heart tearing pain is already impossible to endure.

“Spare me! Don’t kill me!” Shen Fei wailed. As the direct descendant of the Sacred Family, when has he suffered such mistreatment before?

Xiao Yi hurriedly called out, “Niece Ning’er, quickly stop! If this continues, Mister Shen Fei will definitely die!”

Hearing Xiao Yi’s words, although Xiao Ning’er was still very furious, her chest was still rising up and down, but her aura had ultimately calmed down. Indeed, killing Shen Fei wouldn’t do her any good. Now that Shen Fei has suffered such heavy injuries, if he’s sent back to the Sacred Family, the Sacred Family will definitely not let them go so easily.

Thinking about it here, Xiao Ning’er’s face turned slightly white. Earlier on, she was being rash in that moment. Now that she thought about the consequences, she couldn’t help feeling uneasy.

Right, Nie Li! Nie Li will definitely have a solution! Only Nie Li can disregard the Sacred Family!

The first person that Xiao Ning’er thought of was Nie Li.

Shen Fei shook his head, clearing his consciousness; however, he has wounds all over his body. That intense pain made him wail out, the Scarlet Black Tiger also retracted. He couldn’t move. He was lying there, waiting for death. How could the current him still have anything to say? Xiao Ning’er didn’t even show a trace of mercy when she acted. He’s worried that the crazy woman, Xiao Ning’er, might really go crazy and kill him. If that happens, even if the Sacred Family helps him get his face back, he would have died in vain. However, there’s one point he couldn’t figure out, why is Xiao Ning’er’s strength so powerful?!

Xiao Yunfeng solemnly said, “Men, send mister Shen Fei back!”

Xiao Yi hurriedly said, “Wait, Shen Fei has suffered such heavy injuries. If we don’t tend to his injuries before sending back, I’m afraid that it’s a little inappropriate. If the Sacred Family were to blame us……”

Xiao Yunfeng glanced at Xiao Yi and ordered the guards, “Send him back to the Sacred Family!”

“Yes!” the few guards respectfully said, carrying Shen Fei like a dead pig.

“Father, have I invited disaster?” Xiao Ning’er worriedly said, retracting her Heavenly Lightning Sparrow. Her face was slightly pale.

“Niece Ning’er, you know this could bring the extermination of our Winged Dragon Family!” Xiao Yi sighed.

Xiao Yunfeng shook his head and said, “Ning’er, continue with your training. Even if the sky falls, we old fellas will support it. Now that the Sacred Family has been suppressed by the Snow Wind Family, they won’t take any action against our Winged Dragon Family, at the moment. We’ll see the situation after a while!”

“Okay.” Xiao Ning’er nodded her head. She made her decision. If the Sacred Family were to oppress the Winged Dragon Family, she’ll go look for Nie Li. Nie Li will definitely have a solution!

Since Xiao Yunfeng has already decided, Xiao Yi and the rest felt a little helpless. They can only pray hard in their hearts that the Sacred Family will not pursue this matter.

Sacred Family

When Shen Hong became aware that Shen Fei was carried back after being given a beating, he was extremely furious. The entire hall was filled with Shen Hong’s violent aura, causing the guards to be afraid.

“I asked you to keep it down a little, you did not heed my words and went to the Winged Dragon Family! It serves you right, even if you’re beaten to death!” Shen Hong was furiously scolding the wounded Shen Fei.

Shen Fei’s expression was miserable as he said, “Father, that Xiao Ning’er is my fiancée. She went and seduced another man, how can you have me endure this? It’s bad enough that the Snow Wind Family are oppressing us, but now, even a small family like the Winged Dragon Family doesn’t put us in their eyes! Since when has our Sacred Family been so cowardly? Father, see how miserably that wretch, Xiao Ning’er, has beaten me to? You have to seek justice for me!”

“Rubbish justice! You can’t even beat a woman, you’re nothing but rubbish! Now that the Snow Wind Family has their eyes on us, I don’t have enough manpower to deal with the Winged Dragon Family. A lack of forbearance in small matters upsets the greater plans. Even after we deal with the Snow Wind Family, are you still afraid that Xiao Ning’er won’t obediently listen?” Shen Hong gazed at Shen Fei. He is really feeling resentful towards Shen Fei for failing to meet expectations, “We’ll settle with the Winged Dragon Family sooner or later, but right now is not the time!”

“I……” Shen Fei was disheartened. He couldn’t bear Xiao Ning’er hanging out with Nie Li. However, he can only reply depressingly, “I got it!”

He understands that this beating that he suffered was all in vain; however, he never expected to lose against Xiao Ning’er and was given a beating instead. His heart was simply pent up with anger.

Seeing Shen Fei’s disheartened look, Shen Hong’s eyes flashed with a ray of chilling light. He never thought that even the Xiao Ning’er, who’s been by Nie Li’s side, would have trained to such a level. It seems that if he doesn’t get rid of Nie Li, he will become the calamity of their Sacred Family!

Over at Ye Ziyun’s yard, it’s filled with birdsongs and fragrant flowers. Making the serene courtyard even more peaceful.

Even though he was chased out, Nie Li has once again, returned here. Right now, Ye Ziyun doesn’t dare to chase him out anymore. Because Ye Ziyun realised that this City Lord’s Mansion can’t do without Nie Li. And with him around, her father seems to be smiling a lot more.

Xiao Ning’er hastily walked in.

“Ning’er, you’ve come.” seeing Xiao Ning’er, Ye Ziyun recalled her actions from last night and couldn’t help feeling her cheeks a little heated. Although she felt a little guilty in her heart, she understood a principle now. Emotions cannot be forced.

“En.” Xiao Ning’er looked at Ye Ziyun and nodded her head in response. The one Nie Li likes is Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er has also slowly accepted this reality. She doesn’t have any resentment in her heart, only helplessness and a sense of loss. After all, Ye Ziyun has done nothing wrong, she can only blame the fact that she did not meet Nie Li earlier and walk into his world.

“Ning’er, what have you come for?” Nie Li saw Xiao Ning’er and greeted, lightly smiling.

“Nie Li, Shen Fei went to my family and was heavily wounded by me. Thereafter, he was sent back to the Sacred Family by my father.” Xiao Ning’er said with her brows showing a trace of worry.

Hearing Xiao Ning’er’s words, Nie Li stunned for a moment, then laughed, “Shen Fei is really lousy. He was previously trashed by me, then he went looking for you. A person like him deserves to be beaten up. It’s best if he’s bedridden for years!”

“Nie Li, the Sacred Family will definitely cause trouble to my Winged Dragon Family.” Xiao Ning’er frowned as she bitterly looked at Nie Li. At a time like this, how could Nie Li take joy in others misfortune?

Seeing Xiao Ning’er’s worried expression, Nie Li waved his hand and smiled, “You don’t have to worry about that. The Sacred Family can barely protect themselves, how can they have the strength to deal with the Winged Dragon Family? Furthermore, we will soon take actions against the Sacred Family, you can be sure of that.”

He’s taking actions against the Sacred Family? Xiao Ning’er was slightly stunned. The Sacred Family is, afterall, one of the three Major families in Glory City!

However, after hearing Nie Li’s words, Xiao Ning’er felt a lot more relieved. She knows that Nie Li wouldn’t lie to her.

For several days, Glory City was very quiet. Aside from the surrounding city walls being more heavily guarded, there wasn’t many changes. Due to the fact that they have just suffered an attack, it’s normal for the city walls to be more heavily guarded. No one finds it weird.

The day finally arrives

As the evening approaches, the lights in the City Lord’s Mansion were lit up. Guests walked into the City Lord’s Mansion one after another. They are all experts from the various families. Every family brought many people over because when the City Lord’s Mansion sent the notifications, they requested that all the experts from the various families were to be present.

The Sacred Family brought five to six people with them and entered the City Lord’s Mansion. Shen Hong looked at the surrounding huge stone pillars and his expression turned even more dark and serious. They have already seen how frightening these huge stone pillars are.

The previous Abyss Demon was killed by the Divine Thunder Killing Array.

Shen Hong whispered something in the ear of an old man. The old man nodded his head and hid himself among the City Lord’s Mansion’s dense buildings.

Thereafter, Shen Hong and his group walked along the long corridor all the way to the main hall, at the center of City Lord’s Mansion.

City Lord’s Mansion’s Main Hall

“Nie Li, are my clothes beautiful?” Huyan Lanruo wore an elegant night gown, her figure was explosive. The ample bulge on her chest drew out a shocking arc. She made a few turns in front of Nie Li.

The surrounding guys were all dumbfounded. If Huyan Lanruo allowed them to have intimate terms with her, even if it means their death, they would still be willing.

Nie Li speechlessly stared at Huyan Lanruo and said, “Beautiful or not, it has nothing to do with me. Miss Huyan, why do you keep following me? Look at my tattered clothes, I’m obviously a poor brat, what do I have that caught your eye?”

“Although your appearance is a little common, and your clothes are a little lacking, from your eyes, I can see that you are a good man. Furthermore, who in Glory City can say that you have bad talent? You’re totally different from those fly-like young masters.” Huyan Lanruo proudly raised her cheeks and seriously said, “I’m very accurate at judging someone!”

Nie Li rolled his eyes. He have never felt himself to be that good, he depressingly said, “Miss Huyan, if you still pester me, I’ll have to call out for someone! Can you let me go? I beg you.”

“Nie Li, which part of me is no good? I’m the young miss of the Huyan Family. How many people wish to get close to me, but weren’t even given a chance? Don’t tell me that I’m not acceptable to you?” Huyan Lanruo clenched her teeth and said fumingly. With so many people surrounding her, on what basis is she not acceptable to Nie Li?

“Miss Huyan, can’t I beg you? What have you seen in me? I will change it.” Nie Li had a face of bitterness.

Although Huyan Lanruo’s temper is a little too heaty, she is definitely one of the top five beauties in Glory City. How many people tried to talk to her but weren’t even given a chance? Such a beauty like Huyan Lanruo took the initiative to chase after Nie Li, but in the end, Nie Li treated her like a plague and kept hiding from her. This caused the guys from various families to be dumbfounded.

They all felt depressed. Why can’t the one that Huyan Lanruo is chasing after be them? If it’s another person, they’d definitely go up and ruthlessly teach them a lesson. For even daring to offend Miss Huyan shows that they are simply tired of living. That way, they can show off in front of the goddess; however, the opposite party is Nie Li. They definitely don’t dare to do it to him. Nie Li is someone that even dared to beat up Shen Fei of the Sacred Family!

“Nie Li, you’re……too much! I hate you!” Huyan Lanruo had tears flash across her eyes as she turned around and ran.

Seeing Huyan Lanruo run away, Nie Li felt relieved. My goodness, it’s hard to shake off Huyan Lanruo once she has her eyes on you. In Nie Li’s view, Huyan Lanruo is just a guest in his life. Furthermore, Huyan Lanruo’s feelings for him might not even be that sincere. Sometimes, it’s just curiosity at work. Compared to Nie Li and Ye Ziyun’s feelings from his previous life, who have walked through life and death together, it’s too far apart. Nie Li’s feelings for Ye Ziyun has never changed. He’ll hide as much as possible from a person like Huyan Lanruo. As long as Huyan Lanruo doesn’t look for him, Nie Li will be thankful to the gods.

106 thoughts on “TDG Chapter 174” - NO SPOILERS and NO CURSING

  1. Ah… After reading this I’m starting to dislike Ninger and will always remember this part…. Although I know everyone is starting to rely on Nie Li but what came straight into Ningers mind was “Oh I got myself into this mess because of my short temper and immaturity but let’s go to Nie Li, Nie Li will save me because Im a damsel in distress who is unable to solve my personal problems myself even though I was the one who seriously beat him up. Ill just rely on Nie Li.” Yes! RELY on Nie Li to save the day because you caused this upon yourself! Seiously, Sacred Family deserves to be beaten up and Im glad she beat him up but to rely on Nie Li after because she was scared of Sacred Family… She shouldn’t have challenged him if she was that scared. After acting all haughty she hides behind Nie Li…. Smh…. Grr I’m so irritated by this, sorry for the rant. Thanks for the chapter.

    1. Short temper? She’s been worried about marrying Shen Fei for years, even to the point of having thoughts about suicide. So who can blame her for wanting to beat the living shit out of him?

      This isn’t a personal problem either, this concerns her whole family’s safety.

      What’s wrong with relying on the person you love anyways?

    2. To be completely fair to Xioa Ning’er she basically saw her most hated enemy come and arrogantly demand that she marry him if she didn’t fly into fury it would be a bit impressive she’s still only like 12 or something
      Even in the past life she was a bit rash and even ran off into the wilderness to avoid the marriage
      Compared to that relying on another person is way more reasonable and something a 12 year old girl is more likely to do

      1. she is 13, but i agree, plus, even the city lord, the highest authority of the area will go to Nie Li for advices on how to proceed, so it’s only natural for her to think of asking him, since she is in his close friend circle anyway

        and it’s not like she started the fight thinking “i’ll ask Nie Li to fix it afterward”, she legitimately asked Shen Fei in duel, he accepted and started rushing first, so even if she was a bit harsh due to her anger toward him, it was still pretty tame and following the rules. remember that Nie Li crushed his balls on purpose while he was incapacited on the ground, Ning’er is still relatively soft here.

    3. It’s not about being a damsel in distress. It’s about who’s the one who oppose again and again the sacred family and always wins. It’s just happens that person and Nie Lee are the same.

      Plus all the other had comented.

    4. So if she screwed up she’s not entitled to rely on her friend? Which in turn is the most capable person she knows, because she’s not going to ask Du Ze or Lu Piao.

      Stop putting female characters in this perfect scale in which like the authors in xianxia like to do is compare them in ranks of virtues, (oh she has beauty that can “make the world go crazy with war” and such and has the temperament of a humble lost winter crane looking for shelter and then the author starts introducing other female characters indicating how their beauty and temperament fares with previous women).

      What do you expect from her? She making mistakes makes her more in line with her character ( a 13-14 year old) than doing everything like Nie li who has a plan for everything. The author hasn’t contradicted himself with this line of thinking and adds to her character depth which is an “Icy front with a fiery heart”.

    5. wtf moonlight you realize he was there to kidnap and rape her right? jesus christ on top of that the years of torture she went through, shame on you. You know any 14-16 yr olds that could deal with that nonsense? Nie Li is like a god to her and others and that shit family cant even fart near him, include the fact she just saved his ass in the recent battle…. are we reading the same novel dude? i mean damn yall some blind mofo’s if you hate the most loyal woman in the series.

    6. It’s not like I don’t understand that she would rely on Nie Li, afterall she made a thing that in other times would be really dangerous for her whole family… what I didn’t like is that she didn’t even try to resolve something or thinking a way out… she simply decided that someone else will resolve the problem for her…

    7. i don’t think she was actually asking him to handle it for her she was asking him what course of action she should take to deal with it herself. she was prepared to solve it herself but did not know how. he just told her it wan’t an issue because he was already taking action against them. she did ask for his plan but thought she would carry it out herself

  2. Thanks for the chapter, Thyaeria, Dogboy90 and Brian! Dear WuxiaWorld, many thanks to the Author, Translator(s), (Editors), (Donors) for the awesome chapter! With lots of love, Jack ❤

    1. well, one of the things that attracted her was that Nie Li was indifferent toward her, if he was to act as a perverted kid of his age, she might drop him, but that’s not going to happen.

  3. Sigh. I don’t get the character of Miss Huyan. She seems so shallow.
    “Oh hey, he is an outstanding genius with acceptable looks. Let’s just make him my husband”
    Furthermore I find her quite annoying. There isn’t real “love” in the air. Nie Li even tells her straight in the face, he won’t be able to ever accept her. Although it might hurt, I would simply live on and try to get over it. Sometimes life is just like this.

    I sincerly hope she doesn’t go down the Yandere route of life. Like harming Ning’Er or Ye Ziyun or setting up traps and stuff, just to make Nie Li save the day.

    1. she is a beautiful girl with a drug cloud charming demon beast spirit, she can literally have ANY guy around her age crawl before her for her affection, Nie Li is the first one to actually resist her, the first one she can’t control like a puppet, that makes him very attractive to her.

      the fruit is always tastier if it’s a forbidden one

    2. Oh hey hes a genius so i like him is shallow. but Ziyun and Ning er’s love is based on the same thing. She is really the only one to see this with her own eyes with out major im trying to protect her or something But useing that as a front to get his own goal.
      It may not seem like real love compared to Ye Ziyun or Xaio Ning Er to Nie Li or Nie Li to Ye Ziyun but love isnt measured by comparing it to other peoples love. so based on that you cant call her love false
