Chapter 284 – Blocked

The pain on Long Yuyin’s body was secondary; Nie Li’s words were like sharp blades that carved the pain straight onto her heart.

That was the greatest humiliation!

Was she really so vile in the eyes of others? Long Yuyin raised her head and looked at the nearby students, who immediately lowered their heads when they noticed her gaze.

So in the eyes of others, she was exactly that venomous woman Nie Li had described!

From Long Yuyin’s point of view, she only wanted to be stronger than anyone else.

So it turned out that she was the trash who attracted the loathing of others!

Her eyes are flickered with tears. Although she was overbearing, she didn’t easily beat or kill anyone. She never intended to kill Nie Li with her three lashes; in fact, it was impossible. She only wanted to teach him a lesson, so why did Nie Li call her a venomous person?

The third lash was the heaviest and most merciless. Nie Li said that he did it for his Master, but she didn’t even know who his Master was!

Long Yuyin’s heart was filled with grievances. She turned her head back towards him as her eyes flickered with tears, grounded her teeth, and said, “Nie Li, I hate you!”

Upon finishing her words, Long Yuyin wiped the tears from her eyes and quickly ran down the steps.

Nie Li furrowed his brows as he watched Long Yuyin’s figure disappear through the entrance of the Saint Soul Grounds. So it seems that Long Yuyin would definitely not leave the matter as it was. However, there was nothing he should be afraid of, regardless of what methods she came up with. After all, Long Yuyin had forced the death of his Master, so in this life, it could be considered serving justice.

If Long Yuyin left the matter as it was, then Nie Li decided that he would also forget it and cease pursuing the grudges from his previous life. However, if she still wanted to tangle with him, then he’d teach her another lesson.

Xiao Yu looked at Nie Li with a dazed expression. He kept sensing that the Nie Li of today was a little off. Although Long Yuyin was overbearing, it still wasn’t to the point that it warranted such a huge reaction from Nie Li. He should be someone who could contain his anger.

Furthermore, Nie Li had said that the third whip was for his Master. But who was this Master that Nie Li had spoken of? Could it be his foster father? But his foster father didn’t have any grudges with Long Yuyin!

Lu Piao also watched Long Yuyin run out, then pulled his gaze away and gave Nie Li a thumbs up. Watching Nie Li give that girl three lashes simply felt great for the rest of them! Even Lu Piao couldn’t stand that pride and arrogance of hers.

Now that the show had ended, they all decided to resume cultivating. Those ranked within the top ten could remain in the Saint Soul Grounds for three days; naturally, Nie Li wouldn’t waste such precious time. Thus, he focused on training and cultivating.

Dragonseal Family, Long Yuyin’s courtyard

Long Yuyin sat by her bed, holding a bottle of medicinal salve. She dipped into the medicine and slowly applied it to her wounds. There were clear wounds on her face, chest, and various other parts of her body. Although she possessed the Blood Dragon lineage, Nie Li’s lashes felt as though they could cut through her body, leaving her in burning pain.

By now, she’d already changed out of her torn clothes and put on a silk set that vaguely outlined her voluptuous figure. When she applied the medicine to her chest, she couldn’t help groaning in pain.

When she thought of the places where Nie Li’s whip had landed, she felt extremely humiliated. He was the first person who’d dared to do that to her!

Her right hand tightly gripped the whip as she recalled Nie Li’s loathing expression. It was as though her entire body were rotten, that even a single glance could be considered too much to bear. Such an expression of despise filled her heart with anger.

She clenched her teeth and wiped the tears from her face as she applied more medicinal salve down her back.

“En.” Long Yuyin couldn’t help letting out another groan from the piercing pain.

The medicinal salve permeated her wounds, and after a period of time had passed, she felt a little better. This kind of fiery hot pain was now engraved deep into her memories. No matter what, she’ll always remember that Nie Li was the first and only person who’d ever whipped her.

She took out a set of violet clothes and changed into them. Draped in a violet cloth, her mesmerizing figure and beautiful face would give others a charming temperament. Except that there was a wound on her face that had yet to fade.

She looked at the mirror that was set some distance away. Although she’d never paid much attention to her own appearance, she was undoubtedly very beautiful. If it hadn’t been for her overbearing character, there might’ve been quite a long line of young suitors asking for her hand.

However, the wound on her face couldn’t be covered.

She recalled the words that Nie Li had said earlier. No matter how beautiful the exterior was, it’d still be impossible to cover up the ugliness in her heart. She picked up an object and pegged it at the mirror. With a shattering sound, the mirror broke into pieces.

Long Yuyin felt so indignant that she wanted to cry. Since she was young, this was the first time that she’d been so wronged.

Soon after she’d finished changing, she left her room and Hu Yong rushed in.

Hu Yong was instantly enraged upon seeing the wound on her face. “Ying’er, what’s wrong with you? I heard that you were beaten? Who was it? I’ll exterminate his entire clan!”

At his words, Long Yuyin was stunned for a moment. Not long ago, such words sounded absolutely normal to her. Whoever dared to harm her would definitely have their entire clan exterminated by her. In the past, she’d believed such things to be absolutely normal.

But at that moment, Nie Li’s insults echoed in her ears. “…beating and killing as you wish, treating lives like grass….For a woman like you, calling you vicious is already considered light!”

Suddenly, deep loathing rose up in her at Hu Yong’s words.

“Hu Yong, mind your own business!” She threw a loatheful glance at Hu Yong as she continued, “I’m going back to cultivate. Get lost!”

“Ying’er, someone hit you and you’re not going to take revenge? I’ll help you take vengeance!” Hu Yong said immediately.

She threw a glance at Hu Yong as she coldly said, “Vengeance? Even I can’t match up as his opponent. How are you going to take revenge?”

Hu Yong said in a solemn voice, “I’ll send the experts from my family to take revenge for you!”

Long Yuyin threw him a furious glare. “Getting help from the experts of your family whenever you hit a wall. Are you trash? Your family aside, you’re just trash! Could it be that the problems that I, Long Yuyin, am unable to handle can be solved by a piece of trash like you?”

Hu Yong was choked by Long Yuyin’s words. He paused for a brief moment before saying in a weak voice, “Yin’er, could the other party’s family really be that powerful? Is it the Ashen Flames Family? Or the Gu Clan?”

As she looked at Hu Yong, a deep loathing rose in Long Yuyin’s heart. Now, she was beginning to understand why she’d been loathed by others. In others’ point of view, she was the member of a prominent family that had a bottomless supply of cultivating resources. The moment she gained an achievement in cultivation, she would mock the origins of others and serve beatings and killings as she wished.

In the eyes of others, her achievements today had all been gained by relying on her family’s cultivating resources. There was little link to herself.

“I don’t want to see you. Get lost!” Long Yuyin rebuked.

When he saw that Long Yuyin was about to flip out, Hu Yong cringed and he backed away.

Only after seeing Hu Yong take his leave did Long Yuyin’s heart slowly calm down again.

She thought about how Nie Li looked down at her from above. She thought about the things she’d done in the past. She’d always thought that such words were fitting and expected of her; that was, until Nie Li’s lashes whipped down on her. Now, she reflected on her words and actions.

“No matter what, I will definitely surpass you. The grievance I felt today, I’ll definitely return them to you!” Long Yuyin promptly sat down and began cultivating Heavenly Energy.

Surges of majestic Heavenly Energy entered her body. Long Yuyin sensed that somehow, her cultivating speed was now a lot faster than it was in the past.

“Virtuous like water, for water does not compete…” Long Yuyin recalled the words from the Foremaster Divination and finally gained a some insight into it.

Saint Soul Grounds

Nie Li continued to cultivate as he communicated with Heaven and Earth, now only a step away from fully forming his first Fate Soul.

One day, two days…

Two days later, Nie Li sensed that he’d already reached the doorstep of the Heavenly Fate Realm. However, breaking through to that realm still wasn’t that easy.

Lu Piao stood up, looked at Nie Li, and said, “Nie Li, I have to leave now.” He’d already used up all of his time and was no longer permitted to remain in the Saint Soul Grounds to cultivate.

“We’ll leave together, then,” Nie Li said. It was impossible for him to make a breakthrough in the short amount of time he had left. He could only take it easy while searching for any potentials for a breakthrough.

The two of them, and Xiao Yu, walked down the steps and headed towards the exit of the Saint Soul Grounds.

The surrounding students watched as the three of them left and couldn’t help sighing in their hearts. Those three monsters were finally leaving. Cultivating with them was simply too much of a blow to their confidence.

Outside the Saint Soul Grounds

The three of them had remained inside the grounds for such a long time that the people outside had already dispersed. Only a few people remained.

When Nie Li and his group exited the Saint Soul Grounds, a group of people immediately walked towards them and surrounded them.

Nie Li furrowed his brows for a brief moment and swept his eyes at the approaching individuals. There were a total of ten people, nine of whom had already stepped into the Heavenly Fate Realm. There was one who was approximately the same age as Nie Li.

“Who are you people?” Xiao Yu looked at them as he went on high alert and made preparations to engage in battle.

The youth walked over as his gaze fell onto Nie Li. “You’re Nie Li?’

Nie Li’s eyes narrowed. “Correct. Who are you people and why are you looking for me?” It seemed that the other party had approached because of him.

The youth closed in on Nie Li as he coldly snorted, “Brat, you must be tired of living. Someone from the Tiny World actually dared to be so impudent in the Skysoul Institute!”

Nie Li contemptuously curled his lips, “Long Yuyin sent you guys?”

      1. She’s not technically a villain though. Sure she wasn’t a good person but technically speaking she wasn’t that bad either. She was over bearing and her extreme pride made her violent with anyone who crossed her but even when she was first introduced she didn’t act like a villain she was just blinded by her own arrogance and pride.

        Take those two things away and she’s just a young woman who wanted to be strong. Plus she’s truly felt the pain of being looked down upon and has gained the desire to become strong through effort and not relying on family power.

        Even if she doesn’t become outright good in the end she doesn’t seem like she’ll turn into a villain at this point. At worst she’ll just be a third party who sees herself as a rival of sorts for the MC.

          1. Rationalize?
            If evil never made any sense at all, no one would be evil to begin with. Most, if not all, evil depends on some kind of rational behind it, even if it’s just “This is in my best self interests.” There’s also “I have to behave this way because of environment” or “It’s justified by the results” and even “I’m not REALLY hurting anyone else, at least not that much.”
            It’s rare, but possible, for a person doing that to confront the results of their rational at some point and realize that their actions are either more harmful or not as beneficial as she or he thought they were. It’s rarer still to develop new, better habits, and usually they don’t happen over night.
            I dunno, I read this light novel without high expectations, but Long Yuyin doesn’t seem that far off the mark for a normal human here: acts on her privilege, has her privilege challenged, takes a second look at herself, has a minor improvement but is for the most part still pissed.
            Love the story and the discussions people have in it. Even if they’re a year old 😛

  1. I feel sorry for you, and best wishes to you. Thank you for all the time.
    If you can combine those plan than it is the best. Good luck out there buddy!

  2. There are a lot of comments claiming that Long Yuyin is just some innocent girl; and from these comments, it’s clear that a lot of readers read the chapter but didn’t comprehend it. There’s a lot of evidence in the chapter clearly showing that Yuyin is not some innocent little girl. Just because you’ve been raised to think that killing others is fine and dandy when they offend you, doesn’t mean that you should be absolved of the crime. Please stop pretending that Long Yuyin is innocent.

    Wish you the best of luck on your appeal.

    1. First of all in this world, most people (that are fighters) have most likely killed, it does not state that she actually ever killed anyone, and “She did not easily beat or kill” could be taken 2 ways “She did not [easily beat] or [kill]” or “she did not easily [beat] or [kill]”, The second actually points to her having killed before. Which is nowhere near as big of a deal as it is in our world, they just seem to get mad or offended so easily, having killed before isn’t that unusual from what I can tell.

      The real problem is, Nie Li is punishing her for something she didn’t do (Yes the lashes were technically earned, but Nie Li wouldn’t have bothered with someone he didn’t know, he is just bent on a revenge for something that never happened. Which personally I hope backfires on him, but unfortunately everything will go his way even if he makes poor decisions). The author is pretty much having him punish her for having a poor personality, which for a lot of people is acceptable, but it’s still bullying.

      Hrm that came out much more convoluted(?) than I wanted it too… but I am too lazy to rewrite it any better than that.

      1. Actually he didn’t want to bother with her when he won 😛 she just insisted…. So I wouldn’t call it bullying when she’s the one insisting after he said he cba about it….

    2. No, she isn’t innocent. And anyone who thinks/says she is innocent, obviously lacks reading comprehension. She has already said she beat, killed, and mocked people due to her family background and arrogance. It has even been mentioned that she has crippled her own fiance. Even though she is innocent, Nie Li’s grudge against her is unjust.

      She doesn’t even know Nie Li’s master, and probably has no conflicts with her in this life. So if Nie Li were to carry on with this grudge past these 3 lashes…then he would be an extremely narrow-minded idiot. Now that she has reflected on her actions, and is changing for the better, I doubt she will harbor such evil intentions again.

    3. She’s not innocent but she’s not irredeemably guilty either. She was arrogance and prideful and valued strength above all else. Because of that she tended to treat everyone poorly since she was amoung the strongest.

      But she didn’t do it because she enjoyed bullying or was sadistic. In fact she seems happy to just ignore everyone if they stayed out of her way. While this doesn’t make her innocent of the people she hurt it does mean that deep inside she’s not a bad person. She’s not like those other kids like from the sacred family, silver wing family, or her fiance who specifically like to go out and hurt and/or kill people just because they can.

      Even with Nie Lie instead of immediately beating him she actually accepted his challange and then demanded her own punishment when she lost as she had agreed to. So again while she’s not innocent she does deserve a second chance to straighten herself out which she appears to be doing.

  3. Noooo.. Nei Li should have just seduced her and add her to his harem not provoke her and attract future trouble.. Nei li being stupid because of rage ???

  4. Okey I am confused, this words “Virtuous like water, for water does not compete…” , were said by Nie Li master this fate divination girl, so how Long Yuyin knows it?, i think in the translation this mas a mantra that Nie Li said before going upstairs, and she pick from him, not his divination master. Correct me if i am wrong.

  5. Thx for the chap :3 and GL with the appealing…. It’s cute how everyone plus the elders thinks that nie li only is better than the other students by a bit…..

  6. The right to speak in your defense before receiving your sentence was the first universal human right to be recognized, back in the 13th century. This world doesn’t recognize any universal human rights, but Long Yuyin still feels the injustice of it being ignored.

  7. Nie Li is pretty righteous of him, saying others are garbage for consuming elixirs gathered from accumulated wealth and such.
    I somewhat remember Nie Li consuming 300 soul stones after a few days in Draconic ruins realm.
    Back in Glory city he would have a surplus of money (billions) from having hundreds of thousands of pounds of Purple haze grass which gave an endless amount of Soul assembling pill, Soul concentrating pill. Nie Li also had, having bought the Nightmare demon pot that created, after buying tens of thousands of demon spirits, two god level growth demon spirits which helps his own growth.
    In Abyss prison realm they had huge amounts of Blood crystal for cultivation.
    Now Nie Li is saying Long Yuyin is trash since she use elixirs.
