Chapter 125 – Gift

Remembering something, Shen Fei went up and laughingly said, “I remember when Lanruo kept talking about marrying brother Ye Han when she’s small. Since Lanruo still has yet to find someone she likes, shouldn’t be that……”

Ye Han chuckled and said, “How can you treat childhood stuff seriously?”

The surrounding youngsters laughed hard enough to echo inside the reception hall.

“Indeed, childhood stuff cannot be treated seriously.”

Huyan Lanruo curled her lips. Her brows twitched as she stared at Shen Fei and said, “That was all in the past, yet you still bring it up. Shen Fei, I have been unhappy with you for quite some time now. If you still make fun of me, see if I don’t burst your egg with my kick!”


Dead silence.

Shen Fei, feeling extremely awkward, had his smile frozen on his face.

An indescribable chill lingered around the surroundings.

That domineering declaration of Huyan Lanruo isn’t in tune with her clothes, no matter how you look at her. The current Huyan Lanruo is like a queen. Her gaze swept across those that laughed at her earlier. Seeing her gaze, they all held their laughing back.

Damn, Huyan Lanruo still has that tigress character of hers. Whoever marries her is signing their own death certificate.

No one in the surrounding area dared to speak. Ye Han gently coughed and said, “Let’s not mention that matter anymore, drop it.”

Shen Fei embarrassedly smiled, “Haha…”

“Shen Fei, I heard that you’re not on good terms with my Nie Li!” Huyan Lanruo looked at Shen Fei and coldly snorted, “If you dare to find trouble with my Nie Li again, don’t blame me for being impolite!”

My Nie Li? Since when did Nie Li become yours?

The surrounding people looked at each other. Recently, Nie Li has been standing in the limelight of Glory City. They never heard of Huyan Lanruo and Nie Li getting together.

“Nie Li?” Ye Han was slightly puzzled. It’s the first time that he has heard of this name. Ever since his return, he has only met with Ye Zong and didn’t hear Ye Zong mentioning Nie Li.

A youngster gently whispered against Ye Han’s ears, “Big brother Ye Han, Nie Li is the recently emerged genius of Glory City……”

Ye Han roughly understood what kind of person this Nie Li is. He reached 5-star Silver rank at only fourteen years old, this cultivation speed is simply too frightening. When Ye Han was sixteen, he had already reached 1-star Gold rank; however, when he was fourteen, he’s still at bronze rank.

Unless it’s someone precocious, the common golden period of cultivation is around fourteen to twenty two years old. During this period of time, a person’s cultivation soared the fastest. Reaching 5-star Silver rank at fourteen years old, aside from being extraordinary talented, also requires intellect far surpassing common people.

“Oh? This has made me a little interested,” Ye Han said, lightly smiling.

“Lanruo, you can’t blame me in this matter. You can only blame Nie Li for being too playful. He seduced my fiancée. Although Ning’er has yet to enter my family, who can endure it when something like this happens?”

Shen Fei had a deeply ingrained resentment showing on his face.

Huyan Lanruo snorted disdainfully and said, “I don’t care about these boring matters. You sure that it’s Nie Li who seduced your fiancée and not your fiancée pestering him?”

Everyone looked at Huyan Lanruo with shock. With the gossip going around about Nie Li being with other girls, shouldn’t Huyan Lanruo talk about Nie Li’s faults? Why would she speak up for him instead? Just how exotic is this Huyan Family’s daughter?

Shen Fei looked at Ye Han, suddenly recalling something that made the corner of his lips curl up and said, “Aside from Ning’er, I’ve also heard that Nie Li has been pestering Ye Ziyun. He’s taken the initiative to confess to Ye Ziyun several times. Recently, he even moved into the City Lord’s Mansion.”

“So what? Shen Fei, I don’t care about those matters, nor do I care about how many women Nie Li has. I’ll tell you right now, if you dare to touch a hair on Nie Li, you believe that I will put you to waste?” said Huyan Lanruo, proudly staring at Shen Fei with a chilling look in her eyes.

After hearing what Shen Fei just said, Ye Han’s brows twitched. A hint of unnoticable chill flashed within his eyes. It seems that he has to take a look at who this Nie Li really is.

Because of the appearance of Huyan Lanruo, the atmosphere on the youngster side became somewhat strange.

The several people over at the top section couldn’t help smiling bitterly.

“Third younger brother, this daughter of yours seems to have quite the character.” Ye Zong looked at Huyan Xiong and laughingly said, “She’s just like her father.”

Huyan Xiong immediately felt embarrassed. How is this daughter similar to her father? This character of hers is obviously the same as her mother.

Shen Hong coldly sneered and said, “Indeed, she is just like her father. So overbearing, saying that she will waste my eldest son.”

Huyan Xiong furiously stared at Shen Hong and coldly snorted, “Shen Hong, don’t be eccentric here. So what if Lanruo wastes him. That brat of yours has ruined girls of other families, he should’ve been wasted long ago! If you have the guts, come and have a round with me!”

Ye Zong waved his hand and said, “Save it, both of you.”

Yang Xin rolled her eyes. Since when did little brother Nie Li find himself a girl from the Huyan Family? His luck with women is still quite good. However, little brother Nie Li probably won’t have any peace in the future if he messed with Huyan Lanruo.

Yang Xin decided to add more oil to the fire, pursed her lips and said, “City Lord, these youngsters seem to be looking forward to meeting Nie Li. Why isn’t he here?”

Ye Zong calmly said, “Nie Li was injured earlier and is still unconscious. I’m afraid that he won’t be able to attend this.”

Nie Li is still unconscious? Isn’t it just the exhaustion of his soul force? Yang Xin frowned, her eyes flashed with faint worry.

Even with a bunch of Black Gold rank Demon Spiritualists, they were still unable to do a thing to that Abyss Demon. She wondered how little brother Nie Li did it! She never imagined that Nie Li was actually able to kill the Abyss Demon, which caused Yang Xin to be surprised.

Suddenly, a commotion broke over at the youngster section.

Nie Li, Xiao Ning’er and Ye Ziyun were seen walking in together. Nie Li walked at the front, looking around at the surroundings, appearing to be extremely casual.

“Tsk tsk, this is my first time attending a banquet in the City Lord’s Mansion.”

What Nie Li wanted to say, is that this banquet hall is…… too poor. After all, Nie Li has been to many places in his previous life, and has gained a vast insight.

The youngsters were all submerged in their own discussions.

“This youngster is the Nie Li that killed the Abyss Demon? He’s only fourteen years old and was able to reach 5-star Silver rank. He’s really formidable.”

“Look at how dull his clothes are!” One youngster spoke out, revealing disgust on his face.

Aside from Nie Li, Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er lured the attention of many. Even though the two girls have their own distinguishing features, they were both extremely charming, causing the eyes of many to be unable to shift from them. Both Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er were the dream girls of all the youngster’s hearts.

Some of the ladies couldn’t help feeling inferior. Only Huyan Lanruo held her chest high, proud like a swan as she will absolutely not admit defeat.

Huyan Lanruo’s gaze fell onto Nie Li’s cheeks. Her charming cheeks showed hints of red on them.

Because Nie Li came in together with Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er, many of the young men felt jealous. One must know that Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er were goddesses in countless hearts. However, they were being monopolized by Nie Li. Is there any justice in heavens? Thinking about Huyan Lanruo’s bold declaration earlier, saying that she is Nie Li’s woman, caused many people to be pent up to the point of wanting to vomit blood.

Is this the treatment for geniuses? Some of the young masters hated themselves at this point of time for being lazy and didn’t train. If they were to have talent like Nie Li, they might be able to win the favor of one of the goddesses.

At this moment, the elegantly dressed Huyan Lanruo walked towards Nie Li.

“Nie Li, long time no see.” Huyan Lanruo’s voice carried a faint sadness within.

“Ah? Long time no see, but it’s best not to see.”

Nie Li felt his scalp tingling at this point in time. Seeing Huyan Lanruo made him want to hide himself, but it’s already too late. This pestering woman, if she were to stick to him, he wouldn’t be able to shake her off anymore. It’s best if she maintained a distance of at least two thousand meters away from him in the future!

If all the people were to know of Nie Li’s current thoughts, what kind of reaction would they have?

After hearing Nie Li’s words, Ye Ziyun and Xiao Ning’er couldn’t help holding back their laughters. As for Huyan Lanruo, she stared at Nie Li, fuming with fury.

The people that have the most influence within the younger generation walked towards Nie Li’s direction.

Ye Han’s gaze swept passed Nie Li and landed on Ye Ziyun. His gaze lit up. Showing a hearty smile on his face, he said, “Little sister Ziyun, it’s been almost two years since we last seen each other.”

“En, Big brother Ye Han, congratulations on reaching 3-star Gold rank,” Ye Ziyun said with sincerity.

Ye Han’s eyes flashed with sadness. It seems that Ye Ziyun still holds this matter in her heart.

Ye Ziyun is the blood related daughter of Ye Zong. Whether it’s her talent or cultivation, she wasn’t close to reaching the foster son, Ye Han. Ye Zong has been extremely strict with his teaching to the kids. Ever since she was young, Ye Ziyun had always been in Ye Han’s shadow. Ye Ziyun forked countless effort to chase after Ye Han’s footsteps; however, she was unable to keep up with Ye Han’s cultivation and was shook further and further behind. Ye Ziyun wasn’t able to get a single praise from Ye Zong, and would cry alone in the night.

Ye Ziyun even felt that Ye Zong liked Ye Han more than her.

Truth is, Ye Ziyun is already considered outstanding among her peers. But compared to Ye Han, she was inferior.

Until recently, after she received the cultivation technique from Nie Li, she was finally able to untie the knot in her heart and face Ye Han.

“Little sister Ziyun, I brought you a gift from my long journey. I hope you like it.” Ye Han retrieved a bracelet that’s emitting a chilling blue luster from within his interspatial ring.

      1. I JUST DON’T SEE IT ANYMORE, I ONLY SEE A DOTING BROTHER. MY MIND ASDKSVFKVJSFV I think this way because he sounded awful for stealing her dad’s attention and he wants to make it up to her!~ Plus I can see Nie Li helping by bridging the gap between them like how Nie Li is bridging the gap between Ye Ziyun and her father by helping her grow stronger and forcing the dad to live right next to her. But that’s just a theory, hope it happens doe.

      1. True that. It would not have been nearly as interesting if it wasn’t somewhat ambiguous.

        Still, the only things against him at this point are the mystery and the expectation we had that he’s auditioned for the role of toppled favorite, or maybe jilted suitor.

        Only, … the modest character he’s shown so far indicates that he’ll just roll with the fall from city’s number one genius.

    1. I’m confused as well :S
      I guess it wouldn’t be too great to just introduce bad guys one after another… the dark guild and sacred family are enough trouble for now. But what is Ye Han’s origin? Maybe he’s from the sacred jerks to seize the control over glory city in the future? That’s the troubling part, we don’t know anything :'(

      But I Like the suspense 😀

        1. His “master” is the only legend rank Ye Mo. So finding something to dangerous for that kid sounds like a joke to you? You think he can just leave Ye Mo whenever he wants to?

          1. Well, he could have died in the previous life before the attack. And she could have said something bad to him before he died and felt guilty…

          2. Or he was simply never an actual part of her life.
            She didn’t grew up with him like brother and sister do.
            He suddenly appeared and was under observation from Ye Zong and Ye Mo.
            Most of the time he was away.
            Maybe he had no bigger meaning to her than the many guards around her.

    1. Pretty sure he’s an enemy, look at that reaction when he heard about Nie Li going after Ziyun! I found him so shady since the beginning, playing the nice guy. Also, even if the last battle was somehow chaotic, it’s kinda strange Nie Li doesn’t have any memory of him during his previous life. He should have been by Ye Zong’s and the grandfather’s side during that time. Shady, so shady…
      Also it seems like he’s going to hate Nie Li so much he’ll cough mouthfuls of blood 😀
      I don’t feel the loving and concerned bro vibe at all from this guy concerning Ziyun.

      “Nie Li, Xiao Ning’er and Ye Ziyun were seen walking in together. Nie Li walked at the front, looking around at the surroundings, appearing to be extremely casual.”
      Coming in like a boss XD

      1. Nie Li wasn’t close to Ziyun until after the attack, and he could have died before the attack.

        And while he is pissed… it’s a brother who heard that his sister is living with a playboy…. that is something that would normally piss brothers off….

        1. Well it’s just that we don’t know his real name and family since he’s a foster child, a talented that is. And not knowing about the next city lord in the battle is kind of suspicous for key characters…

          1. He’s not different in battle next to the guards.
            Besides, Nie Li wasn’t on the front line to look at them fight. Sure Nie Li may knows the essential big familys and their offsprings, but Ye Han isn’t part of their family and was never there to be relevant or talked about.

    1. I think i’ve read too many harem novels recently, i was SURE that with ning and ziyun the love triangle was enough to make me happy, but the tiger, is sounding fun… we may have to strengthen some of nie li’s male friends so they can share the burden of interesting female leads otherwise my heart may break and desire a full-blown harem

      1. Looking from the outside: Nie Li loves Ziyun, feels friendship toward Ning’er, and is probably not far from literally beating off Lanruo with a stick! Ziyun has complicated feelings toward Nie Li that have not fully resolved, would like to be friends with Ning’er but can’t completely walk away from the competition she senses from her, and feels suppressed by Lanruo’s “mature” beauty. Ning’er loves and pursues Nie Li with gentle determination, feels that Ziyun is a rival in love and cultivation (also a little bit of jealousy that Ziyun wasn’t being sold to the Sacred Family like she was), and views Lanruo as a threatening interloper. Finally, Lanruo finds Nie Li to be mysterious and pursues him aggressively, and looks down on both Ziyun and Ning’er because she is convinced she will be able to win Nie Li in the end.

        Clearly the most entertaining part is Nie Li beating off Lanruo with a stick, that’s what I’m looking forward to 😉

        1. Nope, it’s actually some bracelet that helps with your cultivation as far as I can tell from Nie Li in the raws I wold ex gone ahead but googles translation is hard to understand! So I know nothing about the character of Ye Han.

  1. Thanks for the chapter.

    This Ye Han guy seem very suspicious ,and i feel like he is a bad person .
    and may have some connections with the dark guild .who knows?


  2. I bet Ye Han is a member of the black guild and that is a direct part of his fast growth. This is just my theory though. Still, he just spent years outside the city doing whatever he wanted. That’s a pretty solid opportunity to chill with the bad guys.

  3. Thanks for the chapters, damn if this novel is heading where i’m thinking Nie Li’s harem will be colossal in the future but for now i feel bad for Huyan Lanruo =/

  4. Ye Han’s attitude and actions certainly don’t seem villainous, not at all.

    His reaction to Nie Li’s pursuit of Ye Ziyun was of concern rather than jealousy. His reaction to learning of Nie Li’s ranking was of admiration rather than envy.

    Well, he is showing slight envy at Nie Li being surrounded by beauties, but who isn’t?

    Also he’s expressing regret over how he’s eclipsed Ye Ziyun in her father’s eyes.

    His facade of polite humility hasn’t cracked one bit under pressure. It’s coming across as quite genuine.

    1. I hope you’re right and would like this development very much… but it’s just that the author has left so many things about Ye Han vague and open. Considering the sacred jerks we’re bound to be suspicous and sceptical.

  5. “Is there any justice in heavens? Thinking about Huyan Lanruo’s bold declaration earlier, saying that she is Nie Li’s woman, caused many people to be pent up to the point of wanting to vomit blood.”

    NO, there’s no such thing as justice in this world, especially in xianxia novel, lel 😀

  6. For all those people thinking Ye Han is a member of the dark guild:

    -Ye Han was observed by Ye zong and Ye Mo his whole life.
    -Nie Li is a big matter to the dark guild and Ye Han has never heard of him.

    Well, i wouldn’t put it past the autor to write something like that wihtout thinking anything through, but there is no indication of Ye Han beeing a villain.

  7. I guarantee you all…. that this Ye Han sees Ye Ziyun as a woman….. and he is associated with the Dark guild somehow…..
    This is Wuxia people….. it’ll be weird if things aren’t like this……

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

  9. Huh. Cool. Huyan Lanruo is so mad. She’s a hilarious character though. She’s basically the delinquent chick that if you are on her good side or if she loves you then she goes all in for you. In a lot of ways she’s a great character. Plus she knows how to seduce but also how not to put out therefore as she basically has said a lot of times, she IS still a virgin and hasn’t been “ruined” like so many others. She’s a rather feisty and entertaining one. I hope to see more of her humor as we go.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  10. This author really needs to write important plot points down. He gets so much shit wrong about what he has said in the past. Like here;
    “He reached 5-star Silver rank at only fourteen years old, this cultivation speed is simply too frightening. When Ye Han was sixteen, he had already reached 1-star Gold rank;”
    Both of these figures are wrong. Nie Li was 13 when he got to 5-star Silver rank. Is he even 14 yet? It hasn’t been mentioned. And it was specifically said a few chapters back that Ye Han was 18 when he got to 1-star Gold rank, but now it’s 16. And tbh, this kind of gap (5 years) makes way more sense than the new gap of 2 years that the author pulled out of his arse, considering all the advantages Nie Li has.
