Chapter 47 Jianghu Gossip 

At that time, countless reasons had already appeared for Shen Qingqiu to be all torn up about his situation.

These reasons were not that he had just made an explosive escape under Luo Binghe’s eyes, but because in that split second he had heard an extremely familiar and hateful sound.
  
A voice with a mechanical accent like Google Translate.

I thought I had already scrubbed this clean. I thought I established that switching the hardware would get rid of the virus?! That since turning over a new leaf I could melt into the sea of people and have the freedom to fly like a bird through the broad skies?
  
Blocking his ears like the bell thief with covered ears,1 Shen Qingqiu rushed from the demon realm to the human realm as fast as lightning, running like a hurricane all the way from Huang Ling to the outer borders. That devilish sound continuously poured into his mind like it was setting up camp in his psyche.
  
【……Activating……Activating……Soul binding……】
  
【……Debugging……Contacting customer service……】
  
Was it because of this ‘soul binding’ that the System reactivated after running into Luo Binghe?

Did the connection break after switching bodies, so you needed to contact customer service to debug the program?  

Luo Binghe is truly the devilish guiding star of his life!
  
Fortunately, aside from repeating those few keywords in a half-dead manner, at least the System could not speak in complete sentences. Shen Qingqiu had been smacking his head the entire way back, but after seeing signs of human habitation appearing ahead and considering his appearance, he slowed his steps and walked back to the garrison town.
  
This small border town seemed more alive in the day than during the night. It couldn’t be called flourishing—the streets were neither wide nor bordered with homes and pedestrians were neither many nor few—but with the storefronts open it could be called thriving in its own right.
  
Next to the tea shop, sign flag2 fluttering in the wind, a young man and woman stood gazing into the distance, swords in hand. Shen Qingqiu walked over and asked, “Why have you still not returned to Cang Qiong Mountain?”
  
Liu Mingyan sent him a small salute. Yang Yixuan hastily said, “The disciples from the other sects have already gone back. Seeing that Elder has managed to escape, we won’t have to worry anymore either.”

Shen Qingqiu went along with them into the tea shop, finding a table to sit down. To the side, some people who were originally chatting idly, suddenly cried out in alarm after getting a glimpse of him. “Ah, it’s… it’s…”
  
Shen Qingqiu turned around to look. It turns out it was those border guard disciples he had saved the night he had just crawled out of the ground. The person who had first seen him stammered, unable to call out a name. Lu Liu hurriedly said, “It’s you, Mister Peerless…!”
 
He had said the last two characters of the name after “Peerless,” but it sounded extremely vague, becoming too ambiguous after being pressed under his tongue. The others, a bit hurriedly, followed his lead one after the another: “It’s you, Elder Peerless…!”
  
Shen Qingqiu nodded his greetings, internally deciding that he must take another title, brooking no delay. Yang Yixuan blankly said, “Elder, is your last name Huang (Yellow)? Huang Hua (Yellow Flower)? Guang Hua (Magnificent Light)?”3
  
Shen Qingqiu sighed, twice, and also said vaguely, “It’s….” After using this ID for so many years, he finally felt a bit ashamed for the first time.
  
He put on a stern expression and said, “Last night, you disciples from various sects saw me in Chi Yun Cave. I couldn’t conceal myself there, so if other people ask about me, say as little about me as possible. It would be best if you could keep your mouths shut entirely.”
  
Yang Yixuan said, “Why? Elder, aren’t you familiar with my master?”

“Uh, we are indeed quite familiar…”
  
Shen Qingqiu still didn’t know what to say when the table to the side continued their conversation. One person asked while spitting out melon seed shells, “Liu-ge, why don’t you elaborate—what sort of alternate explanation could there be?”
  
Lu Liu said, “That alternate explanation is very interesting. This opinion seems to have spread from people on the inside. This Luo Binghe and Shen Qingqiu…”
  
Upon hearing these two names, Shen Qingqiu’s heart gave a thump. Involuntarily, he straightened his posture, pricking up his ears to listen. The waving of the fan in his hands slowed. The two from Cang Qiong Mountain sect also could not resist looking over.
  
Lu Liu drank a mouthful of tea and said, “This Luo Binghe and Shen Qingqiu were master and disciple, right? This Luo Binghe came from a poor and humble family and suffered the hardships of the world since he was young. After becoming a disciple of Cang Qiong Mountain sect he was still underappreciated for a while and was beaten down and humiliated by his peers. Fortunately, Shen Qingqiu treated him with generosity and deep affection.”
  
He spoke with grandeur and musical inflection, vibrantly acting out each word, giving professional storytellers a run for their money.4 Shen Qingqiu subtly nodded. Right, before he had kicked Luo Binghe down into the Endless Abyss, you bet he was quite kindhearted.
  
Yang Yixuan snorted and said, “What use did that generosity and affection have? It still wasn’t…”
  
One person said, flabbergasted, “Isn’t this version of events the complete opposite of the rumor that Shen Qingqiu oppressed his disciples?”
  
Lu Liu said, “You’re already astonished at this? Then what are you going to do when I continue to explain the rumors that this pair of master and disciple were together day and night with sincere emotion born in secret?”

The three people at Shen Qingqiu’s table had taken a mouthful of tea, but upon hearing this sentence, Shen Qingqiu and Yang Yixuan simultaneously spat it out. Though Liu Mingyan didn’t spit out her mouthful, her hand shook, tilting her teacup and spilling tea all over the table.
  
The whole table sucked in a breath here and there: “There’s this sort of rumor?!”
  
Lu Liu said, “That’s right! But, strictly speaking, it was Luo Binghe harboring one-sided impure thoughts towards Shen Qingqiu, his own wishful thinking.”
  
His own wishful thinking? His own wishful thinking?!
  
“What sort of person was Shen Qingqiu? Qing Jing Peak’s Peak Lord. What was the way of Qing Jing Peak? Tranquility of heart and forsaking of desire, setting one’s heart on throwing oneself into the lawful path of cultivation. Shen Qingqiu saw through the mortal world and didn’t get tangled in the foolish sentiments of normal people. It was because that Luo Binghe sought something he failed to get that hate was born from love!”
  
Blue veins popped up on Shen Qingqiu’s forehead and the backs of his hands.
  
Yang Yixuan said, astonished, “H-hate born from love?”
  
Lu Liu continued, “Thinking of it this way, it’s very easy to explain everything else. The whole sequence of events at the Immortal Alliance Conference was definitely like this:
  
“Luo Binghe, as Qing Jing Peak’s head disciple, was sent to compete. Because of his remarkable performance, he was filled with confidence in himself. It just happened that at that time, demons ran loose within the sealed mountain and Shen Qingqiu entered Jue Di Gorge to provide backup. Luo Binghe was caught up in the moment and seized the opportunity to confess his true feelings to his Shizun.”
  
Shen Qingqiu facepalmed in pain.
  
Why, why does it always seem like for this person, out of every ten sentences there are nine that are not bad, but it’s always the last one that sounds so strange?

In addition, it’s exactly this sentence that changes the meaning of the whole incident into something so strange!
  
Lu Liu said solemnly, “Shen Qingqiu had a noble and unsullied character and naturally gave a firm rejection.”
  
Shen Qingqiu was faintly moved. Other than his Zhangmen Shixiong,5 he never expected to find an outsider willing to apply the phrase “noble and unsullied character” to his person. Who would have thought that immediately afterward the storyline would take a dramatic turn? Lu Liu said with a voice full of emotion, “Who could have guessed that after being rejected, Luo Binghe would become desperate? Overflowing with evil intent, he even lost his mind and went berserk. In a disgraceful and unfilial act, his desire led him to try and make Shen Qingqiu submit by force!”
  
Shen Qingqiu sunk his fingers into his head of messy hair, sunk in deep despair.
  
Yang Yixuan was already speechless. The gates of a whole new world had just been opened for that young man, and he was being battered by new perspectives. Liu Mingyan, on the other hand, just let out a soft “Ah.”
  
She only carefully said, “So it was like that.”
  
‘So it was like that’ what?!
  
Which ‘that’ is ‘that’ referring to?!
  
Don’t think I won’t fight you just because you’re the female protagonist!
  
Before they had noticed, a crowd of spectators had congregated at Lu Liu’s table to listen to the gossip, melon seeds and wooden benches covering the floor. Listening with rapt attention, they all sighed at this point, “What a beast of a person—”

“Not only a beast, simply worse than a beast—”
  
In the sound of these sighs, all seemed to have satisfied a matchless interest.
  
Big Brother, are you the captain of the border patrol squad or the gossip squad?!

Lu Liu abruptly slammed his teacup down like a gavel.6
  
“There’s no way Shen Qingqiu would be willing to submit! The master and disciple crossed swords. The end result was that the Shifu won an extra chip and Luo Binghe retreated in defeat, sadly making his exit.
  
“Even though they had an acrimonious falling-out and tore into each other, Shen Qingqiu still couldn’t bear to ruin the reputation of his beloved disciple. It wouldn’t do to explain things clearly, so he used the excuse that Luo Binghe had met his death at the hands of the Demon Race. Though he did preserve the reputation of this disciple, he wasn’t willing to go to extremes.
  
“So, this is the truth behind Luo Binghe’s years-long disappearance after the Immortal Alliance Conference and why he did not return to the Cang Qiong Mountain Sect even though he was not dead.
  
“It’s not that he didn’t want to see, it’s that he didn’t have the face to see his Shizun!”
  
On that end, his story was in full swing. On his end, Shen Qingqiu was watering his heart with tears.
  
What an intense storyline!
  
Who are these two—the assaulter and the white lotus flower Virgin Mary!?
  
The key is whether he was able to succeed in forcing himself or not—this is really dampening the point of a dam**d urgent issue. How could this happen to Luo Binghe? If he wanted to force himself on someone, who wouldn’t obediently spread their legs?!

Lu Liu said, “After the frustrating emotional affairs of the Immortal Alliance Conference, Luo Binghe had another fortuitous meeting. He trained until he gained exceptional achievements from head to toe, and even gained the favor of Huan Hua Temple’s Old Palace Master. But, he was still unwilling to give up on Shen Qingqiu. Returning in a swirl of dust, then occurred the events of Hua Yue City.
  
“Doesn’t Cang Qiong Mountain Sect all flatly insist that Luo Binghe is of the Demon Race? The way I see it, it’s not necessarily wind from an empty cave. Most likely, they discovered tiny hints that he was colluding with the Demon Race to slander Shen Qingqiu’s reputation.7 Shen Qingqiu was aloof and untouchable and Luo Binghe couldn’t come into his sight, so he wanted to pull Shen Qingqiu off his high horse. A complete bodily defeat and fall from grace would destroy his haughtiness!”
  
Shen Qingqiu didn’t know what he had let go of. In short, he suddenly felt his body and mind relax. He didn’t want to listen to anything or care about anything.
  
He said with a pleasant countenance to the other two, “Let’s order our dishes.”
  
Lu Liu took the chance to say, “Mister Peerless… you can count your table on my tab.”
  
Then turning back around, he continued with a tone full of grief and lament:
  
“Luo Binghe thought of every possible means to shut Shen Qingqiu in Huan Hua Temple’s water prison. You ask what he was up to? His rapacious designs were clear to see. Huan Hua Temple had long been in his pocket so he could command wind and cloud with a wave of his hand. They claimed to be keeping Shen Qingqiu in temporary custody pending the four sects’ joint investigation, but there was little difference from keeping a lamb in a tiger’s den. In those few days shut in the water prison, Shen Qingqiu was bound with Immortal-Binding Cables. Completely without spiritual energy, who knew what this perverse disciple did to him?!”
  
The crowd, in one voice, interjected in disgust, “What a perverse disciple!”
  
“Raising a tiger invites calamity!”
  
Shen Qingqiu threw aside his menu. “How about we go somewhere else.”
  
Lu Liu said, “Shen Qingqiu couldn’t bear this humiliation, and gathered up all his strength to escape. Who knew that he would be cut off in Hua Yue City by the search party that Luo Binghe sent? Cang Qiong Mountain Sect was of one heart, and Bai Zhan Peak’s Peak Lord Liu Qingge naturally went ahead to provide assistance. This attempt at assistance was met head-on by Luo Binghe.
  
“Luo Binghe’s seas of jealousy could overturn the heavens. Not allowing any explanation, he knocked Liu Qingge head over heels, hand raised for a ruthless killing stroke. Shen Qingqiu, with no other way out, could only self-destruct on the scene….henceforth….”
  
He didn’t continue on after that, profoundly leaving a blank space in his work, inviting a chorus of sighs from his audience.
  
Finally, Lu Liu arrived at his conclusion. “This is precisely the secretly spread alternate explanation. Even though it sounds a bit absurd and could be regarded as complete nonsense by some people, it does contain many details which give one something to consider. Gentlemen, remember at all costs that official histories are often whitewashed or embellished by official scribes, the actual facts being concealed, and that in many cases popular history is taken as official!”
  
The particulars are not even a little reliable, okay!
  
‘Official history’ your sister!
  
Big brother, even if I suffered a worse tragedy than not getting any sisters for twenty years I wouldn’t resort to becoming a cut-sleeve! Let alone hooking up with the male protagonist!

After the young waitress gracefully wove her way up to deliver the dishes, Yang Yixuan and Liu Mingyan were still staring blankly into the distance. Shen Qingqiu reprimanded, “Hurry up and eat. After you finish you should return without delay.”
  
Staying any longer in this sort of dangerous place—who knows what kind of attacks these two children would suffer against their lives, their worldviews, and their values!
  
After escorting the two juniors out of the borderlands, Shen Qingqiu picked a direction opposite to theirs.
  
Walking until the moon was high in the sky, his extremely keen hearing focused on an indistinct peal of demonic bells.
  
Shen Qingqiu said, not even turning his head, “You truly are the spirit that doesn’t disperse after death.”
  
Her whereabouts having been discovered, Sha Hualing didn’t plan on staying in hiding. Confidently strolling into view, red muslin at her wrists, she smiled. “Who taught you to make Ling-er so curious, sire? To treat those two so attentively, what sort of relationship does your distinguished self have with Cang Qiong Mountain?”
  
Shen Qingqiu turned around and said, waving his finger, “I’m not going to fight with you, and you shouldn’t get any ideas about fighting with me.” Weighing Sha Hualing’s current importance, she couldn’t defeat him. He was just thinking about giving her a scare when suddenly, his whole body gave a jolt. It felt like a thousand-legged centipede was boring its way through his organs.
  
Sha Hualing’s smiling expression took on a crafty bent. “Yes, I am no match for you, but do you think that means there’s no way to control you?”
  
Shen Qingqiu felt his legs go soft for a while but still stood firm. He clenched his teeth and said, “When did you make me eat it.”
  
Sha Hualing said coquettishly, “How was the food and drinks you had today? Were the waitress sisters pretty? Fortunately, you did eat it—if you were in a high state and fasting, refusing to let anything enter your mouth, it would really have given Ling-er a headache.”
  
Careless. At the time, his complete attention had been drawn in by the gossip squad captain’s lively and emotional performance. Gossip kills people, ah!
  
She circled a loop around Shen Qingqiu and said, immensely self-satisfied, “Do you know what’s currently in your body? This is certainly no ordinary poison.”
  
No kidding! This elder is more familiar with it than you. I’ve already eaten Heavenly Demons’ blood two times, two times!
  
Normally you eat it once and die once. Who won this lottery more times than me!
  
Other than the original master, no one can control the Heavenly Demons’ blood, and now the blood parasites were beginning to stir in his body. That could only mean one thing.

Sha Hualing suddenly bowed to something behind Shen Qingqiu, saying, “This subordinate did not fail you. I have captured this person just now.”

Shen Qingqiu stiffly turned his head.
  
Dark lightning had split in the air, creating a rift that was slowly closing.
  
A tall and slender silhouette stood behind him. As Shen Qingqiu turned his head, they finally met face-to-face.

Luo Binghe towered above him. Though his gaze was expressionless, under the gaze of those eyes like two cold pools, even another layer of facial hair or a mask would be like no disguise at all.
  
Shen Qingqiu fixed his gaze on him.
  
The former Luo Binghe, while cold, was like the reflection of warm sunlight on fresh snow. Even in Jin Lan City and the water prison, he had some traces of humanity, some faint facial expressions, and would lose control in anger. But this young man—his expression looked as if it had been frozen for a thousand years, directly conveying the fields of snow and glaciers in his core, and made others’ insides freeze over with fear.
  
Despite this, Shen Qingqiu’s current state of mind was not like what he had expected. It was difficult to explain since all sorts of emotions were tangled up in his mind, but the one emotion that most would have experienced was missing: fear.
  
Maybe it was because the best plan he had didn’t succeed in hiding him and that the stars had aligned to return them to their original places, but a state of tranquility and indifference settled over him.

A puzzled expression flashed across Luo Binghe’s face for a split second, making his face soften a bit. But quickly, this trace of softness dissipated, leaving no trace. His pupils suddenly contracted and an intricate red mark flickered on the center of his forehead.
  
Before his sleeves had finished a swing, Sha Hualing was suddenly hoisted into the air, coughing painfully like an incorporeal hand had snatched her by the neck.
  
At the same time, that drop of Heavenly Demon’s blood in Shen Qingqiu’s inner organs frantically split into thousands of threads, boring through his insides. Cold sweat soaked his back.
  
Luo Binghe said, lightly, “You’ve certainly got some guts.”
  
Though his tone was light, anyone could feel the violent rage hidden beneath the surface.
  
You’ve got some guts? Who is he speaking to—him or Sha Hualing?

Shen Qingqiu’s brain shifted into high gear. Luo Binghe shouldn’t have recognized him, even if this current face had a bit of resemblance to Shen Qingqiu’s original. Even if Luo Binghe’s perception was so meticulous that he could easily recognize minute differences through a layer of whiskers. It seems like he had recognized his resemblance to another….though this line of thinking bore no fruit. It would certainly be disastrous if he was recognized, but not being recognized didn’t lead anywhere good either!


Reika”s Notes:

  • This chapter is by Lily.
  • *gasp* The System is back! 
  • Everyone just refuses to remember the “Peerless Cucumber” name!
  • “….the rumors that this pair of master and disciple were together day and night with sincere emotion born in secret?” I hope it’s clear enough what this “sincere emotion” is. Throughout the entire narration, Lu Liu speaks in a very G-rated but suggestive way.
  • That spicy gossip about a Peak Lord and his disciple… rofl. Is it me or can everyone (except for Shen Qingqiu) tell that Luo Binghe is madly in love? I love how the others just nodded their heads and were like “I see!”

  1. “Who are these two—the assaulter and the white lotus flower Virgin Mary!?”

    i am effin dying 😂😂

    thank you so much! 💕

  2. Who won the lottery twice? Hahaha. LMAO 😆 Thanks for the chap. Another oblivious MC for the run. Can’t help comparing him with Wei Wu Xian. Hehe. Thanks for the update!

  3. It’s getting more and more exciting!
    Honestly this is the best chapter I’ve read so far, thank you for the hardworks!
    I really want to sit there together with them hearing Lu Liu’s gossips and see SQQ’s reaction LMAO
    And Mingyan’s reaction’s just LOL
    Aah and they finally met again! I wonder if LBH recognize his Shizun?

  4. So is this the part where Liu Mingyan’s fanfic plot started forming? lol It would be hard to forget those juicy details from the gossip!

    Thanks for the tl! Happy holidays!

  5. Can’t believe he got caught so fast and again with poison in his body :):
    Now I’m wondering who was Binghe talking to? I don’t think shizun would be recognized that easily, so it has to be something else….

    Thanks for the translation. We appreciate you a lot lot lot <3

  6. It never ceases to amaze me how MLs manage to find and identify their special someone amongst a crowd, despite physical changes, and the lot. Illogical, but meh.

    But my man, Shen Qingqui. That version of the story is as real as you can get.

  7. SYSTEM!

    I love the rumors and how everyone but Qingqiu realizes that Binghe’s in love with him. But please don’t fight Mingyan, Shizun.

  8. Poor Sha Hualing…. She was just doing as she was told and even did a good job, but you’re punishing her anyway, Luo Binghe?

    Poor Shen Yuan… He ingested Binghe’s body fluids for the second time. Worse, that system is reconfiguring and about to make his freedom short-lived.

  9. In one sentence he says no one will refuse ML’s advances and not long after he says he will never become a cut sleeve..SQQ, pick any one!!

    Also it’s nice and all that SQQ doesn’t feel fear towards LBH but i get the feeling that maybe it might be good if SQQ could run away till the murderous rage is over. Or use that jade pendant before he gets killed

  10. I love your translation, thank you very much!
    This chapter was very funny, and entertained.
    And those gossips were quite close to the truth, except that they left poor Luo Bigen as a degenerate beast, and that Sen Quiuqu wasn´t so dense with Luo Bigen’s feelings.
    I hope that Luo Bigen will soon discover that Sen Quiuqu is alive, the poor man has already suffered and waited a lot.
    And that Sen Quiuqu realize for once the feelings of Luo Bigen towards him, that will help him to better understand Luo Bigen.

  11. Ahaha, little does our Peerless Shizun know of the truth in those rumours…. “Not in 20 years” your sister!! *rubs hands together* Huehuehue… I can’t wait!!
    I personally don’t think that Binghe has recognised him yet…. I kind of hope not, since it would be a bit too easy.. though, I can’t wait to see his reaction when he finally does!!! With SQQ’s “self destruction”, hopefully Binghe will at least have learned that there’s more to the tale than he’d thought – hopefully they can actually just talk about it and clear up all the misunderstandings… and then onto the bit we all (and, but the looks of it, many of the characters.. lol) have been waiting for!!

    Thank you for the translations!! 🙂

  12. Muchas gracias.
    Estos son mis deseos:
    1.- Que el estúpido sistema deje de joder y amenazar a nuestro Shizun con matarlo sino cumple con lo que desea.
    2.- Que LB se haya dado cuenta de que si es SQQ
    3.- Que SQQ aclare las cosas con LB y vea que parte del chisme contado es verdad, es decir, se dé cuenta del por qué LB estaba tan dolido

  13. I read this chapter while being sick and had to choose, between coughing or laughing.
    The gossip part was almost make me coughing blood.

    Thanks for the chapter, its really Made my day~

  14. “Big brother, even if I suffered a worse tragedy than not getting any sisters for twenty years I wouldn’t resort to becoming a cut-sleeve! Let alone hooking up with the male protagonist!”

    Uh-huh. Ok. XD
    Thanks for the update!!

  15. Uwaaaaaah this is the chapter I’ve been waiting for since yesterday *fangirls to the max* I’ve been wishing for Binghe to capture Shizun huehuehue (≧▽≦)

    Shen Yuan, why are you so dense hahahahahahahahahahaha

  16. Oh gosh OH GOSH OH SWEET JESUS!!!! I NEED TO KNOW IF HE WAS RECOGNIZED, AND WHY, HOW???? THE POWER OF LOVE??? PLEASE AUTHOR DON’T GIVE ME THAT SHIT! I WANT COOL MOMENTS AND FIGHTS!!! SOME SENTENCE OF MY DEAR BABY CUCUMBER THAT GIVE HIM AWAY, NOT THE “POWER OF LOVE”

  17. Thank you so much for the update! 😆😆
    AHAHAHAH Shizun, ahh… Shizun. You’ll be the one spreading your legs… eheheh
    I don’t think Bingmei has recognized him for some reason, but looking forward to when he does HEHEHEHH
    Looking forward to the next update!! KYAAAA

  18. !!!!! OMG this chapter killed me!!! Reunion at long last??? Also dying at fujoshi gossip, I love that this view is spreading LOL. Will this soon be the only version of events people accept??? I admit that way back when, part of reason was sad at water prison massacre was because no more hilarious misunderstandings, glad to see it’s back.

  19. oh my.. that certain Lu got a very interesting gossip to share XD

    Mister Perless is soo ashamed XD lols

    Anyway.. did Luo Binghe knows the truth or what??

    Thanks for the chapter… cant wait for next week for new chap..

  20. Omg!! He didn’t recognize him!! I wonder when he is going to recognize his shizun? Thanks for the chapter!!! 😀

  21. I’m going to EXPLODE. Our precious Cang Qiong Mountain disciples are like, “Ah. *smacks fist* So that was what it was.” Everybody believes that Luo Binghe is in love with Shizun!!! Or else, how could such a conspiracy theory become so popular? SQQ, when will you also believe that Luo Binghe is in love with you lol. Thanks for the chapter!

  22. OMG MFing HELLISH CLIFFY!!

    SQQ I bet he recognizes…he certainly quickly spread the threads throughout your body as if you were his treasure.

    Also you need to reconcile two thoughts you have.

    1) The key is whether he was able to succeed in forcing himself or not—this is really dampening the point of a dam**d urgent issue. How could this happen to Luo Binghe? If he wanted to force himself on someone, who wouldn’t obediently spread their legs?!

    2) Big brother, even if I suffered a worse tragedy than not getting any sisters for twenty years I wouldn’t resort to becoming a cut-sleeve! Let alone hooking up with the male protagonist!

    1 would cancel out 2. 😂

  23. Hahaha. Lu Liu is a superb storyteller. That fanfiction he told is full of hints of the truth and a lot of wild imagination.

    Poor SQQ, he was deflowered by his naughty disciple! XD

    It’s really funny that everyone believed the story. “Oh, so that’s how it was. Makes a lot of sense.”

    Thanks for the chapter!!

  24. Binghe is so in loooooveeeee!!! But I’m wondering….. I haven’t read any signs from Shizun that leads to the mutual lovely relationship …. Thank you so much for the chapter 💕💕 u r the best

  25. Indeed.. That’s really an intense storyline!

    I bet LMY was having flashbacks on how the pair of student-teacher interacted back then, and suddenly it all made sense to her. Come here LMY, let me welcome you to our fujo squad.

    Thank you for the translation… The cliffie makes me restless. I hope LBH doesn’t realize that he’s SQQ, and only referring to his “no touching CQ Peak disciples”.

  26. Hey system, stay the f*** away from Shen Qingqiu ah!

    What are you doing to your love interest (and your underling) Bingheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    Thank you for the translation!!!

  27. And a fujoshi is born. Also, SQQ, ‘not even after twenty years…’. Famous last words my friend.

    Thanks Lily for the fantastic translation and the whole team for all your work 😘

  28. ughhhh i need to know if he recognized shizun ..it’s really sad how Luo Binghe reputation and his deep love for shizun had been ruined and tarnished by these stupid rumors 😖💔💔💔
    thank you so much for your effort , will be waiting for the next chapters ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  29. Thanks for update!! 😂😂 Luo BingHe loves shizun so much, and Shen Qingqiu can’t see it!! Omg
    I wonder when he will fall in love with binghe.
    So, binghe recognized him or not? I’m really curious for the next chapters 😂😂
    Thanks once more for translating Scum Villain for us!

  30. Oh god the cliffhanger! Thank you so much for the translation I laughed so much over sqq internal monologue. I kinda got impatient and decided to look for the source translated in Vietnamese, which I’m fluent in, and I gotta say, I CANT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT TWO CHAPTERS ARE TRANSLATED.

  31. LMAO!! How can that Lu Liu’s story be so exaggerated and yet right on the money at the same time😂😂! “Big brother, even if I suffered a worse tragedy than not getting any sisters for twenty years I wouldn’t resort to becoming a cut-sleeve! Let alone hooking up with the male protagonist!” Mark your words, Shen Qing Qiu, you will definetly want to sew your own mouth shut later!

  32. Omfg, the two disciples just got their three views destroyed lol.

    If the real story was revealed then the “ML is Bent” believers would probably say, “I told you!!!” XD

    Thank you for the chapter!

  33. Why Cliffhanger, why must u do this to me???!

    Am I the only one who actually didn’t want them to meet? I kinda expected him to run away a little more, next chapter is gonna be lit 🔥🔥🔥

    The rumors tho, I was in the bus and still laughted so loudly people stared att me 😅

    This novel is so enjoyable 😁
    Thanks 4 the update, monday is my favorite day now 😘

  34. I just started getting into SVSSS after getting to know GDC, and man, I don’t regret anything
    Thanks for the chapter ^-^

  35. haha i love liu mingyan’s reaction too! Shizun can’t take the gossip anymore. that sense of defeat though. ROFL hahaha. this chapter was super fun. next few chapters are definitely going to be interesting!!!

  36. ‘How could this happen to Luo Binghe? If he wanted to force himself on someone, who wouldn’t obediently spread their legs?!’
    Oh darling… Mark your words

    Thanks for the chapter

  37. Fyi Huang hua/yellow flower can also mean chrysanthemum which we all know is dlang for anus…hahaha. Just some minor dispreperencies between chapters/translators.

  38. The gossip can be considered a good fanfiction, right? 😂 fanfiction inside the fiction. I laughed my ass off 🤣 but our Shizun changes his mind often. He thinks no one can’t resist the protagonist and spread their legs first then he says he’ll never be a cut sleeve next. Anyway, he’s gonna accept his fate sooner or later 😁 thank you so much for your efforts

  39. I just can’t- I mean, my god, HUSBAND AND WIFE SHOULD JUST GET TOGETHER. IT’S LOVE FOR GOODNESS SAKE. JUST SMOOCH, DO THE DEED, BE HAPPY FOREVER. Thanks for this chapter! As usual, the translators are such cinammon rolls! Also the recommended fic was awesome, thank you so much for recommending it!

  40. That Lu Liu, I ought to start worshipping him Lol he even spelled out that Luo Binghe was crushing hard on Shen Qingqiu… but to no avail… it couldn’t pass trough Shen Yuan(?) dense wall and shake his core xD I am laughing and crying here 😂

    Thank you ♡

  41. Omg that is a fanfiction of it’s it’ XD I cannot, my sides hurt XD I’ve been laughing since the System came XD ahahahah I need to sleep XD class starts in 7 hours or so but XD I’m so happy, I’m gonna treat this chapter as a bday gift XD thanks for the chapter~~

    He has been destined to meet LBH again, It’s written in the (novel plot) stars! XD This meeting is inevitable AHAHAHAHH XD

  42. I love how Liu Mingyan just accepted the rumor haha.

    “even if I suffered a worse tragedy than not getting any sisters for twenty years I wouldn’t resort to becoming a cut-sleeve! Let alone hooking up with the male protagonist!” Shen Qingqiu you’ll probably eat those words soon hahaha.

  43. Hahaha what a great chapter! I love the dramatic (and embellished) retelling of SQQ and LBH’s tragedy. And SQQ’s reaction to it is so hilarious. He’s so oblivious rofl

    I’m really excited LBH and SQQ met face to face again. LBH totally recognized him (or at least sees the resemblance). Ahhhhh A+++ thanks for translating! Also super exited for the next chapter and whenever we see LQG again 🙂

  44. thanks for the chapter!! i really hope that LB recognizes SQQ!! i dont know what turn the story will take but im exiteddddd

    1. Bet 2 cookies he won’t recognize him right away. I give him about 2 more chapters to figure it out. 🍪🍪

  45. Wonder who was spreading those rumours? Luo Binghe himself maybe? Thank you for your translation! This chapter was pure
    gold!

  46. thank you for the update!

    may i ask that if im not wrong teacher and disciple relationship is counted as a taboo thing? like the equal of incest in there?

  47. “How could this happen to Luo Binghe? If he wanted to force himself on someone, who wouldn’t obediently spread their legs?!” oh my god sqq…

    also that ****king gossip asjkfnaknj

    i’m so excited for binghe to say words to sqq again! please! just talk to each other! i’m begging you!!!!!

  48. This is by far my most favorite chapter! You guys really picked up a winner! Thank you for your hard work!! 💜I purple you💜

  49. LU LIU HAS SHOWN SHEN QINGQIU THE WAY. Dang, I would love to know from who did he get the information from.

    If the poison was added when they were at the restaurant, then did Luo Binghe heard the ‘insider information’ too? XD

    I can’t wait for the next chapter asdfghk
    Thank you so much for the chapter! 💕💕

  50. lol if i didnt know shenqiuqiu was that new body, i will be like
    poor dude. he was born with that face. luo binghe, you cant control genetics xD
    but DUNDUNDUN . SQQ. i pray for your life and crysanthemum.

    YOU MAKE MY MONDAYS SO WORTH IT ♡ thank youui!

  51. Lol Liu Mingyan slowly becoming a Fujo is just gold ahahaha.. aaaaiyaaa I wonder who spread that amazing tale of our shizun and bingmei xD ahahaha..

    Thanks for the chapter!!~

  52. I read the all the chapters in one night and went to sleep at 4am while it is school week. But it was worth it. This is so entertaining, thank you for translating! 🙂

  53. LMAO I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO RETORT FOR THAT ABSURB GOSSIP! BUT…I am pretty sure this version of gossip is a summary of some female disciple doujin idea that somehow got spread X’D. At least your reputation turn into someone so pure Peerless Cucumber X’D, Poor LBH though got his name blackened..not that he care with him losing his shizun…

  54. MONDAYS HAVE NOW BECOME MY FAVORITE DAYS. OH HOT DAMN, I CANNOT WAIT FOR WHAT COMES NEXT!!!!

    hotscenespleasehotscenesplease

    They need to get on with the PAPAPA ALREADY HAHAH!

    I’m so hyped and happy with this update. Thank you for your hard work!

  55. That version of events is definitely doujinshi-like!

    “Gentlemen, remember at all costs that official histories are often whitewashed or embellished by official scribes, the actual facts being concealed, and that in many cases popular history is taken as official!”
    This man gets it. >3

    “Yang Yixuan was already speechless. The gates of a whole new world had just been opened for that young man, and he was being battered by new perspectives. ”

    Knowledge is a dangerous tool indeed!

  56. NOOO!!!AHHHHHH WHO WAS BINGHE TALKING TO!?!?!? I DIDNT COME HERE JUST TO SLIP OFF THE CLIFF! GAHHHHHHHHHH

    P.s. Thanks for the chapter. <3

  57. Pfft.
    Poor Shen Qingqiu.
    He sure doesn’t expect those gossipers to be his own trap, huh?
    And those gossips are truly spicy enough to make him irritated
    It’s fun to read, tho’ 😂😂😂

    I assume Luo Binghe is angry over his appearance instead of Sha Hualing, considering his face is a bit like the original.
    Ah, I just hope their misunderstanding will soon be cleared out.
    Thank you for the update.

  58. HOLY DUCK

    YOU WONT BELIEVE HOW MUCH I GO ON AND OFF THIS WEB TO SEE AN UPDATE

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    My stomach hurt after reading that gossip, its so wrong but so accurate ASDLKF

    Ah i cant wait to see Binghe and qingqiu’s interaction! No matter sad, funny or just questionable interaction they have, its always so exiting!!

    I too do wonder who binghe was referring to

  59. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! !!!!!!!! !
