Volume 7: Chapter 12 – Escaping from the Abyss

Three days and 9 times of drinking the soup had quickly passed by, as I anticipated for Hai Shui to come release me.

Finally, the waiting was over. A light shone and Hai Shui’s familiar figure appeared before me once again with a long bag in her hand. When she saw that I was still locked on the stone bed, she was astonished and whispered, “Zhang Gong, you still haven’t recovered?”

I replied, “I already have, but I was afraid that they would figure it out, so I didn’t break free from the shackles.”

Hai Shui sighed in relief. “Hurry, we’ve got to go! We’ll need to make use of the time we have.”

After I silently circulated my battle spirit, my entire body emitted bright white light. After using strength on my limbs, ‘Dang! Dang! Dang! Dang!’ sounded as I easily freed myself from my shackles. I leapt to Hai Shui’s side. I also found that being able to stand was so awesome.

Hai Shui passed me the long bag and took out an escape scroll. “Let’s be on our way!”

I took the long bag and opened it. It was my Sukrad’s staff. When I tightly held onto it,  I felt the ties that were linked by flesh and blood.

I took the escape scroll from Hai Shui. “I think it is better that I do it. You just have to hold onto my arm.”

Hai Shui asked, “Are you sure you can do it with the current state of your body?”

I nodded. “No problem. I’ve already recovered half of my magic powers. As long as I don’t face the powers of the few old teachers, I should be able to deal with them.”

Hai Shui expressed a happy look and replied, “This escape scroll is Teacher Zhen’s most recent research, It has the ability to determine the spot of the teleportation. It can send to an exact spot with a limit of 10 kilometers. In other words, it can send us to any position we want within a 10 kilometers range. I’ve already set the location so you can just activate the scroll.” After I said that, she clung onto my arm and also stuck her body to mine.

I looked at her embarrassedly but seeing that she didn’t have any intention to move back a little, I just let her be. I deeply inhaled before using the Sukrad’s staff to cast a protective barrier around us before activating the escape scroll. The stone prison had lost our presence after a golden light flashed.

The feeling of using magic again was so moving. It felt as though I had gained a new life. I was extremely interested in everything and magics phenomenons. I was filled with love towards life.

After the light shone, I found that we had unexpectedly teleported into a room. The room was all pale pink in colour. It felt very comforting. The entire room was filled with sunlight. I asked Hai Shui in surprise, “Where is this? Did you set the location wrongly?”

Hai Shui reluctantly pulled away from my arm and pouted. “It is only you that set the location wrongly. This is my room.”

I immediately was greatly alarmed. “What? This is your room? Why did you set this place as the location for the escape scroll?” It was unexpectedly Hai Shui’s room.

Hai Shui replied, “What’s wrong with my room? This place is safe and is also in my family’s place. Who will come here to search, especially if it is my room?”

I blushed and replied abashedly, “I am a guy. If I stay in your room, it will damage your reputation and integrity.”

Hai Shui’s expression darkened. “I’m not scared. Why are you? Your heart only holds Sister Mu Zi. If this is her room, you won’t be so conservative.”

Seeing that she got a little angry, I didn’t dare to rebuke her. I changed the conversation topic by asking, “How are the few teachers? Is Teacher Di feeling better? How is the situation at the frontlines?”

Hai Shui said with her eye brows frowned, “You ask so many questions at one go. How do you expect me to answer your questions!”

I surrendered and said, “Alright…Alright! You can answer them one at the time. You can start by telling me about Teacher Di’s situation.”

Hai Shui giggled and replied, “Teacher Di doesn’t have any problems. The main reason was that he was extremely worried about you to the point that he fell ill. You are Teacher Di’s heart problem.”

My eyes reddened as I thought about the many years that Teacher Di had guided me. I lamented, “I really let Teacher Di down this time. Hai!

Hai Shui replied, “You don’t have to be this upset. If you can make accomplishments in the world in the future, he will be pleased. He also wishes you the best. That old man said you don’t have to look for him and wants you to hurry, and get away from here. After everything has settled, we’ll discuss further and to also not forget your tasks.”

I shook my head. “I’m afraid that I’ll have to let him down again. After I get out of here, the first thing I’ll do is to save Mu Zi. One out of ten demon race will survive. If I don’t die in the process, I’ll accomplish the tasks.”

Hai Shui asked in surprise, “What? You’re going to the demon race?”

I resolutely nodded my head. “I must go and find Mu Zi. I really can’t lose her.”

Hai Shui lowered her head and muttered, “If you can treat me like this, and even if I die, I’m willing.” She said that as she cried. Looking at her appearance, it was so moving. I couldn’t control myself and gently embraced her and patted her back. “Be good. Don’t cry. How can I not understand your feelings to me? You have risked your life to save mine this time. I am really grateful for that. If you don’t mind, I am willing…….” I really didn’t want to hurt this adorable girl anymore. Even though it might be out of sympathy, I was prepared to accept her.

Hai Shui widened her eyes and asked. “Really? Is this for real?” She rejoiced for only a short while before she quietened and said, “It is impossible. You already have Sister Mu Zi. She won’t accept me.”

I patted her head, “Silly girl, Mu Zi isn’t that stingy. She has already brought this up many times to accept you.”

Hai Shui raised her head and asked, “Really?”

I sincerely nodded my head and held Hai Shui’s hand. “Are you willing to accept me? Even though I can’t say that I love you, I’m willing to slowly cultivate my feelings towards you. You helped me too many times. I also don’t want to continue hurting you any further.”

Hai Shui’s face expressed a sign of happiness before her happiness surged out. She tightly hugged my waist and place her face on my chest and said elatedly, “This is too awesome! It’s just so great! My dream finally came true. Zhang Gong, do you know that I’ve waited for this day to come after suffering from so much pain?”

I said in astonishment. “It can’t be that you’re as open minded as Mu Zi, right? You don’t mind being with her as well?”

Hai Shui shook her head smilingly, “I definitely don’t mind. Your magic is so strong so there’ll be a lot of girls that will fall for you. I’m already extremely ecstatic that Sister Mu Zi doesn’t mind me being with you. As long as I can be with you, I don’t care about anything.”

    1. I think its as it should be. I find it strange that in here in the states, people call each other “codependent” when they’re in love, then why get married at all if you want to remain independent and end up getting divorced anyway?

  1. You know what’s the best in ‘harem’ genre in XianXia novels? It’s that the MC get’s the girls without the need for all the drama to just choose one, like in Japanese Pain-in-the-a** scenario…….

  2. I’m happy about the harem route but why do I feel Hai Shui will die soon? This Author does not strike me as the harem type. So I feel ?will happen if I’m right.

    1. Maybe I can “console” you with the fact, that TJSS (the author) also wrote “Heavenly Jewel Change” which is even more harem and sex than ATG or MGA – so at least I am not worrying here.

      1. It has harem elements but more harem than All The Girls? I think the MGA comparison is also inaccurate, but in ATG’s case it’s not even close. In Heavenly Jewel Change the MC also likes to appreciate beauty, but although he likes to fool around with beauties it’s perfectly clear to whom his heart belongs to. Here you have Ling’er who he’s always felt indebted to, Little Fairy who is the mother of his child, Jasmine with whom although he hasn’t really flirted much he spends every second of his day with (and the flirting thing might change once she grows up some more), Little Aunty for whom he destroyed a major sect and his now two legal wives.

        1. I just saw that HJC translated up to chapter 50. My statement is only valid for later in the story (I’ve almost read all – but don’t want to spolier). Just saying: It beats All the Girls up to the chapter the author has released 580+. So if you like beauties following the MC, HJC is definitely a story for you.

  3. He didn’t let us down, guess he proved to be a real man after all, that bromance had scared us, but at least he wasn’t a bastard still, harem route started.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  4. Men! We had a great run! But… I’m sorry to say… We could not escape the harem. From this point forward you will be on your own. You choose whether or not you want to continue! If you decide to stay know that i will be supporting you! If you decide to leave I wish you a great journey and safe travels. As for me… I’m going to finish what I started.

  5. this harem route (though its still not harem) is diff than others cause they genuinely fell in love with each other, unlike all the girls (loved the name) or More girls than ATG (self made)

  6. This is turining into a haram… I don’t know if I could take one of these girls. I suppose Hai is rather good tho. However Im afraid she will turn into a pain too when she gets used to the relationship. :/ People always grow larger demands. XD

    I think the only girls I as a main novel/manga/anime caracter would be willing to take, would be those who would willing to become my slaves. ^-^
