Chapter 80: Key Item

The interior of Maigu Ridge had caved in until it was all a mess. Originally, there were hundreds of thousands of interconnecting caves extending in all directions, but now, half of them had collapsed because of the quake. Every nook and cranny was blocked off by fallen rocks.

Shen Qingqiu struggled to navigate his way through them.

Suddenly, a faint demonic aura emanated from amongst a pile of giant, arching rocks.

Shen Qingqiu subconsciously shouted, “Luo Binghe?”

It could not be Luo Binghe━immobilized by Yue Qingyuan’s seal━crushed under it, could it?

He leaped over and lifted the topmost layer of the stone slab to reveal damaged green scales underneath. Big and small stones rolled down with every feeble rise and fall of those green scales.

Zhuzhi-Lang’s snake form was coiled into a small, impermeable and protective fortress around Tianlang-Jun, who lay unharmed in the middle.

The disintegration of Tianlang-Jun’s body was even more severe now. His head looked as though it could drop off at any moment. He opened his eyes and looked at Shen Qingqiu, even being in the mood to greet him, “Peak Lord Shen.”

Shen Qingqiu asked, “How are both of you doing?”

Tianlang-Jun replied, “I’m used to this. Zhuzhi-Lang, not so good.”

He was indeed not in a good state.

The light in his two large yellow pupils, which used to shine brilliantly like a pair of lanterns, had begun to dim, although they still had spirit in them. Many of the green scales on his body had fallen off and there were patches of red and black over the body; he was covered all over in wounds.

Shen Qingqiu helped to push away the piece of rock that was pinning down his tail and found Zheng Yang still stuck in its body. He reached his hands out, grasped the hilt of the sword and pulled it out. The damage caused by blood loss was nothing to the demons; on the contrary, Zheng Yang was brimming with spiritual energy and sticking it into its body had caused even more serious harm.

Tianlang-Jun said, “Isn’t Peak Lord Shen not very fond of paying him any attention?”

Shen Qingqiu said, “Who said I don’t give him attention? It’s just that there’s a communication breakdown sometimes. He… how is he?”

Tianlang-Jun used the remnant of his ruined arm to “stroke” that triangular snake head. He didn’t answer, but countered with a question, “What do you intend to do next?”

Shen Qingqiu replied, “Destroy the sword, of course.”

Tianlang-Jun said, “Xin Mo has already consumed Luo Binghe’s mind and is now one with him. Isn’t destroying the sword now the same as killing him?”

Shen Qingqiu resolutely said, “Then I’ll think of another way.”

Tianlang-Jun asked, “Even if it’s too late to prevent the merging of both worlds?”

Shen Qingqiu took a breath and said impatiently, “……Then so be it! I’ll do my best. We will talk about the rest when the time comes.”

At last, Tianlang-Jun laughed again. He said, “Peak Lord Shen, you’re really a strange one. To use the words of you humans, you profess to harbor no feelings and yet there is1. This is so true of your actions towards Zhuzhi-Lang, and even more so towards my son.”

He gave a sigh again and lamented, “As expected, I still can’t hate humans.”

Seriously, no matter how strange I am, you still win hands down when it comes to being strange. Shen Qingqiu could not continue with the conversation and instead asked, “Where is Luo Binghe? Have you seen him?”

Tianlang-Jun curiously asked, “I thought Peak Lord Shen knew? Isn’t he always behind you?”

Shen Qingqiu’s eyes immediately widened. With his hairs standing on end, he slowly turned his head around.

Sure enough, Luo Binghe stood behind him, staring fixedly at his back.

There was no knowing exactly when he had started standing there. Or to put it in another way, when he had begun to tag behind Shen Qingqiu.

Luo Binghe smiled and said, “Shizun, hand me the sword.”

Maintaining his composure, Shen Qingqiu lifted up Xin Mo sword and said, “You can come over and get it.”

Luo Binghe took a step towards him and suddenly stopped dead in his tracks. The corners of his mouth twitched and his shoulders shook.

Shen Qingqiu leveled the sword in front of him and asked, “What’s the matter?”

Luo Binghe clenched his teeth and hissed, “……Get lost.”

Before Shen Qingqiu could react, Luo Binghe pressed down on his temple with one hand, threw out a violent punch with the other, and shouted, “All of you get lost! Don’t pester him. Scram!!!”

This was not directed at him, and the blow did not land on him but brushed past Shen Qingqiu and destroyed a part of the cave wall which was already full of dents to begin with.

Tianlang-Jun helpfully pointed out, “Xin Mo’s hallucinations”.

Needless to say, Shen Qingqiu could more or less figure it out himself, too. Luo Binghe obviously looked like he saw something others were unable to see. He was striking out with the spiritual and demonic energy in his hands at the space beside him in a frenzied manner, locked in battle with opponents that never existed. The mountain shook again, and stones tumbled down in chunks. Shen Qingqiu glanced at the two men on the side; they could be perfectly described as the old and the weak, the sick and the disabled. He shouted, “Binghe, come here!”

Luo Binghe had a vacant look on his face: nonetheless, he was still very obedient and went after him as expected.

The one leading in front moved fast like the wind, whereas the one following behind was like a wandering soul, yet he maintained his speed and never once fell behind. Right at this moment, the system prompted: 【Luo Binghe’s Anger Points 300. Multiplying Xin Mo’s factor by 10, the current value is 3000.】

Shen Qingqiu yelled, “Where is the key item? Can’t you bring it out quickly?! Jade Guanyin! Jade pendant! Take it out fast!”

System: 【Hello, the release of the key item is currently loading. It is recommended that you use other tools for the time being.】

Shen Qingqiu, “Loading my━! What other tools are there, show them to me!”

System: 【Friendly Reminder: The Small Scenario Pusher Luxury Edition Package that you have purchased previously is still unused.】

Shen Qingqiu abruptly came to a halt.

Truth be told, he still has yet to figure out what the heck this “Small Scenario Pusher” was and how it worked. But, judging from that one time user experience he had, it appeared to be━quite useful!

Shen Qingqiu gnashed his teeth and said, “……Proceed!”

Show me what this Luxury Edition is made of. Bring it on!

He had just jabbed on the confirm button when the ground gave way beneath him again.

On the way down, Shen Qingqiu only had one thought: what a scam, so much for “pusher”━you damn bulldozer2!

He tumbled and slid for a spell, and above him, the rocks were coming down in torrents. Yet, not one piece of the falling rocks struck him.

Someone was taking the blows for him.

Luo Binghe was delirious, and his mind was in a fog, yet when it came to the crunch, he had still instinctively used his own body to shield him from the crumbling rocks.

With a single backhand push, he flung off a boulder that had smashed into his back. He was oblivious of the pressure as he lowered his head to look blankly at Shen Qingqiu; there was a fleeting moment of clarity in his eyes, but with a blink, it was abruptly replaced with turmoil.

The dark red symbol on his forehead was spreading out in a pattern along his entire snowy white face, even extending down towards his neck. Xin Mo, which had fallen to a side, was ceaselessly glowing and dimming purple amidst a black cloud of energy, as if pulsating in tandem with the markings on him.

Luo Binghe muttered, “Shizun…?”

Shen Qingqiu responded with an affirmative “mhm.” Seeing fresh blood flowing down Luo Binghe’s forehead, his voice quavered a little.

Luo Binghe asked, “Shizun, is it really you?”

“……mhm.”

Luo Binghe said, “Is this for real this time? You left with them earlier, didn’t you? I saw you.”

Shen Qingqiu replied, “I’m not leaving.”

Luo Binghe slowly bent down, burrowed his face in the crevice of his neck, and whispered, “Shizun, I’m hurting. My head hurts.”

This manner of speaking was like the whining of a pampered child, yet it also seemed like he was really, really hurting. Shen Qingqiu slowly reached out his arms and placed them around the back of his shoulders. Patting him gently, he coaxed him as if he was pacifying a child, “Be good. It won’t hurt anymore soon.”

Luo Binghe asked, “If I am good, it will no longer hurt, and so Shizun will never leave me alone again?”

Shen Qingqiu said, “The pain will go away very soon.”

Luo Binghe said in a low voice, “I don’t believe it.”

All of a sudden, he flew into a rage and bellowed, “I don’t believe it! I don’t believe it!”

Seeing him act up again, Shen Qingqiu grasped his shoulders, bravely lifted his upper body and raised his head.

Something was wrong with the angle. It hurt when their teeth knocked against each other. With his mouth blocked, Luo Binghe’s stunned eyes were still wide open. He blinked once, then a second time.

Shen Qingqiu’s eyes were wide open too. Staring wide-eyed at each other like this gave him an extremely weird feeling.

After staring at one another for a while, none of them closed their eyes. So he could only give in and closed his eyes first. His eyelashes quivered, and he deepened the kiss.

Honestly speaking, this kind of collision, where his mouth and teeth were still hurting so much that they felt numb, simply cannot be called kissing; it can only be called gnawing.

But obviously, Luo Binghe was very happy to gnaw all over Shen Qingqiu’s lips, like he was eating candy. His breathing became more and more urgent, and he suddenly pushed Shen Qingqiu back and pressed him to the ground.

With a ripping sound, Shen Qingqiu’s outer garment was torn into pieces.

The remaining pieces of clothing were stripped off by Shen Qingqiu himself. In between the act of tearing at it, his pants were pulled down to his knees, and his last remaining undershirt, that had been loosely covering his upper body, slipped off his smooth, rounded shoulders.

Luo Binghe ran his hand along the collar and slipped his hand in, groping.

He was burning hot all over, it was even worse than the time at the Holy Mausoleum. His hand kneaded hard on Shen Qingqiu’s skin.

He was burning, hurting, flustered.

Shen Qingqiu knew what was coming. He had already made up his mind and was ready. He consciously turned his body around, with his back facing Luo Binghe.

Although he had no experience in this kind of thing, he had heard that it was easier to enter from the back if it was the first time. He thought that this posture was kind of disgraceful, but he did not dwell too much on it. He originally meant to make it more convenient for Luo Binghe to have his own way with him, but who knew that he would be brazenly flipped back again.

Luo Binghe wedged himself in between his legs, staring intently at his face. They were only a few inches apart, their hot breaths intertwining.

A burning hot object was propped up against the dry opening on his lower body; its diameter was somewhat terrifying, like an engorged ball of something.

Because the front end was slightly moist, his tight opening was able to take a little of it in.

Luo Binghe did not charge in immediately. He was in a daze, yet he still insisted on staring fixedly at Shen Qingqiu’s face; bit by bit, he rained small, gentle kisses on Shen Qingqiu’s cheeks. Shen Qingqiu was initially a bundle of nerves, but because of this unconscious act, he relaxed a little.

He relaxed too early.

Shen Qingqiu finally experienced what it felt like to be split apart alive from the middle.

He went mad with pain, kicking his legs back in a retreat. Luo Binghe clamped down on his waist and dragged him back, chafing his back against the rough rocks and stinging his flesh.

The flare of pain at this very instance made Shen Qingqiu’s mind go blank.

He struggled violently like a dying fish out of water. But the more he struggled, the more emotionally unstable Luo Binghe became; his eyes red, his breathing in disarray, his thinking clouded…… all he could think of was to hold on to Shen Qingqiu and plunge it in until the very end!

The thickest part of the tip, which was connected to a long shaft, was already buried inside him, pressing down heavily on his internal organs. Shen Qingqiu held his hand against Luo Binghe’s chest, but his waist was being held down in place, his legs were pressed against his own chest, and his hips were raised so high that he could not stop his intestinal wall from being stretched open all the way.

He choked back a scream, loosened up as much as he could, and spread his legs open, letting Luo Binghe shove it all into the deepest recess.

With it buried deep, it was as if he was being penetrated by a scorching nail and pinned to a rock alive. Luo Binghe, looking like he had finally found some sense of security, grabbed Shen Qingqiu by the hair and pulled him up into a kiss.

The pain on his scalp could be overlooked, but the change in position gave Shen Qingqiu the horrible illusion that his internal organs had been displaced; the opening in his rear end was writhing uncontrollably. Unaware of this, Luo Binghe did not show restraint. Feeling invigorated, he began to thrust in and out without mercy.

His actions were fast and savage. After hundreds of thrusts with alternating speed and varying depth, Luo Binghe was finally able to repeatedly enter him unhindered.

The sound of papapa, intermingled with a watery, squelching sound, rang incessantly in his ears.

Shen Qingqiu’s eyes filled with tears.

It hurts.

Boy, it hurts.

He trembled with pain, but he did not forget what he had to do at this juncture. Transferring his spiritual energy over, he guided the turbulent demonic energy inside Luo Binghe into his own body.

This method was awfully stupid, but it was also extremely effective. The source of Xin Mo’s demonic energy was Luo Binghe; if he split up and transferred some of this energy over to him, then Maigu Ridge would naturally stop collapsing due to a lack of power.

The flesh wall of his insides shuddered as it enclosed that object that was ramming in and out relentlessly; no man has ever explored this territory before, and the grinding caused the tender meat of the wall to burn hot and swell. At the start, the passage was difficult, but after the bursts of searing pain, the intestinal muscles gradually moistened, with blood and intestinal secretions smoothing the way for intercourse.

In the darkness, the smell of blood pervaded the air. The sounds of agonizingly repressed panting and flesh pounding on flesh were all the more vivid.

Luo Binghe was so into it as he stubbornly clung on to Shen Qingqiu and nudged his cheeks against Shen Qingqiu’s forehead. He was a picture of obedience and aggrievement, but the same could not be said for sight below, which could almost be described as brutal.

Shen Qingqiu was embraced so tightly that he had difficulty breathing. The five fingers on his right hand drew blood as he dug them into the rocky ground. Even his breath hitched several times before he managed to gasp for breath.

He could not take it anymore.

He really could not take it anymore.

Just as he felt light-headed and his vision grew dark, a faint white light flashed across.

With a crisp, clear “ding” sound, it landed on Shen Qingqiu’s bare shoulders.

Luo Binghe was wary and raised his eyes for a look; in that split second, he was momentarily in a trance.

And then, his pupils shrank. The images which were previously blurred gradually superimposed over each other, becoming clearer and clearer.

He slowly lowered his head, and the color drained from his face.

Shen Qingqiu was lying under him. His clothes were all torn. His legs were trembling and would not close. His eyes were terribly red. He looked as if he was going to take his last breath any moment now.

Luo Binghe reached out a hand to touch him but got cold feet and his hand froze in midair. He mumbled, “……Shi……zun?”

Finally hearing Luo Binghe addressing him as “Shizun” in his usual manner, Shen Qingqiu looked as if he had been revived and gasped for breath. Only, this gasp for breath was so laboriously taken that it sounded like a sob instead.

Luo Binghe was stupefied. “Shizun…… I…… What did I do?”

Shen Qingqiu originally wanted to clear his throat, lighten up the mood and say, you didn’t do anything except do your shizun, is all. In the end, he did not manage to clear his throat but coughed out a mouthful of blood instead.

Both of them were frightened out of their wits by this mouthful of blood.

Shen Qingqiu had not even shed a tear yet when Luo Binghe broke down. His tears dripped onto Shen Qingqiu’s cheeks and slid down along its contours.

Shen Qingqiu used to be afraid of women crying, but now, the thing he feared most was Luo Binghe crying. Ignoring the pain in his rear end, he wiped Luo Binghe’s face and consoled him as if he was coaxing a child. “Don’t cry.”

Luo Binghe’s tears rolled down his shoulders like beads tumbling off a broken string. He was at a loss as he hugged Shen Qingqiu and sobbed, “Shizun, don’t hate me…… I don’t know…… I didn’t want to hurt you…… Why didn’t you push me away; why didn’t you kill me?”

Shen Qingqiu patted his back sporadically. “This master knows. This master is willing.”

As he coaxed him, he felt a boundless sense of desolation.

The one whose cherry got burst was him, alright? Why was the one who popped his cherry crying even harder than him? Why did the one who got screwed still have to turn around to comfort the one who screwed him?

Give him a break! A deflowered Luo Binghe was simply even harder to placate than a deflowered maiden!

Shen Qingqiu resignedly said, “Then…… you pull out first……”

Luo Binghe’s tears were still hanging off his eyelashes. Disregarding his bashfulness or the fact that he was still not done with venting, he gingerly withdrew.

He stared blankly at the tragic picture that was in between Shen Qingqiu’s legs, his face turning whiter and whiter. Even so, he still attentively straightened Shen Qingqiu’s undershirt and draped his own outer robe over his body.

Shen Qingqiu did not dare to look down at his lower body too. Very slowly, he closed his legs. As he did so, the muscles on his face twitched slightly. He tried his best to hide the pain on his face.

In order to divert Luo Binghe’s line of sight and attention, Shen Qingqiu extended a hand to pick up the Jade Guanyin at one side and gestured to Luo Binghe to lower his head.

Luo Binghe stammered, “I thought….. I thought it was long gone…… I thought I would never ever find it again……”

Shen Qingqiu helped him to put on the red string around his neck and told him, “Keep it safe from now on. Don’t lose it anymore.”

Luo Binghe hesitantly asked, “At that time, it was Shizun who helped me out of a tight spot. Could it be, from that time onward, Shizun has…… has always kept it by his side?”

It had always been stored in the system inventory, to say that he had always kept it on him was not exactly wrong. With this reasoning, Shen Qingqiu feebly nodded his head.

Luo Binghe’s hands tightened around him. As he wept, he suddenly noticed that the patterns on his arm were rapidly fading away. His forehead and cheeks, which were burning hot, were also cooling down rapidly.

He asked in astonishment, “What are you doing?”

Shen Qingqiu hugged him tightly, locking Luo Binghe in his arms so that he could not move. He murmured, “Nothing. I told you, it won’t hurt anymore soon. Be good, don’t move.”

Luo Binghe’s voice cracked as he asked, “Shizun, are you going to use your own body to draw away Xin Mo’s demonic energy like the last time?”

The “last time” he spoke of was referring to the time when Shen Qingqiu self-destructed. That had certainly cast a huge shadow over him. Shen Qingqiu replied, “It’s different from that other time.”

Luo Binghe clenched his fists and said with his voice quivering, “How is it different? Shizun, why are you treating me this way? For others, you would even go so far as to do the same thing again! Do you think…… I’d still be able to see it happen again with my own eyes? I should have known a long time ago, that no one would choose me and would rather abandon me and leave……”

Shen Qingqiu said sternly, “Luo Binghe, you listen here!”

Sure enough, Luo Binghe compliantly listened with tears in his eyes.

Shen Qingqiu said, “Su Xiyan risked her life to give birth to you. Luo Binghe ah Luo Binghe, think about it, being the kind of person Old Palace Master is, would he have given his disciple some mild medicine?

“That would definitely have to be something that is fatal to demons. If she had really lost heart, accepted her fate and took the medicine, even if you don’t die, how would you have been able to grow up to be this big all safe and sound?”

Luo Binghe’s shoulders trembled. Shen Qingqiu continued, enunciating each word, “If I were in her shoes, I would not hesitate to drink it regardless of how lethal it is. Then, after escaping from the water prison, I would absorb it all into my own body. Regardless of how agonizing and horrifying the process is, regardless of the price to be paid, regardless of whether it would be a painful death, I would never let this child suffer any harm.

“This is how I see it. You can take it as just an interpretation because there is no one who can tell you what Su Xiyan was thinking before she breathed her last. But if she really saw you as a disgrace, she didn’t need to do anything more. She could have just lowered you into the Luo River, on the coldest days of the year, in a harsh and frozen landscape━how could you possibly survive?

“Or perhaps, she wasn’t willing to give up her position at Huan Hua Palace as the head disciple━with all the glory and a promising future to be had━and continued to gulp down every new poison sent by Old Palace Master; there would be no need to flee and hide pathetically from the pursuit of Huan Hua Palace’s disciples; nor did she have to strip off her outer robe and wrap it around you after giving birth to you all on her own on a secluded boat; she also need not use the last of her strength and energy to put you in a wooden basin and push you away to safety…… You don’t even need to wait for someone to save you at all since you would have already become a wandering soul who met his freezing end in Luo River.

“Now that you are standing here, alive and well, how can you hang on to the words of others and believe that your mother was really so cold-blooded and cruel that she didn’t truly want you?”

After saying his piece in one breath, Shen Qingqiu felt stifled and sensed the demonic energy flowing haphazardly in his limbs and bones. He used his remaining strength to grasp Luo Binghe by the wrist.

“Channeling away Xin Mo’s malevolent energy wasn’t because of any other person, or anything else. It was all for you.

“I…… have no wish to see a Luo Binghe who has fallen into the clutches of Xin Mo, with his mind so twisted that he would be perpetually haunted by phantoms for the rest of his life.

“What this master expects of you, is for you to be alive, sober, and strong.”

He then continued in a whisper, “So, stop saying that nobody wants you, or that no one would ever choose you.”

Luo Binghe knelt by his side. His eyelids could no longer take the weight of his tears any longer and fell freely, like a child who has suffered too much injustice.

He was merely a child all along. He walked alone on this earth, ran around in the dark, and fallen countless times. He never asked for much, and yet he always never managed to grab hold of those few he desired. If he had known this, Shen Qingqiu thought, he would definitely…… definitely……

But as it had been said earlier, there was really never such a thing as “if I had known” in this world.

All of a sudden, Luo Binghe let out a laugh. One of his hands grabbed hold of Shen Qingqiu’s hand and laid it on his face, while the other hand picked Xin Mo up from the ground.

The blade of the sword, which was encircled with swirling purple light, let off a whine that sounded like a shrill scream. The sound of something shattering into pieces reverberated in their ears.

“Shizun, I know why you are saying this much.”

Luo Binghe peered at him and pulled up the corners of his mouth.

“But, if Shizun, the only one in this world who holds this kind of hope for me, is gone, then…… what’s the point of me being alive, sober, and strong?”

The heat from Luo Binghe seemed to have spread to him. Shen Qingqiu felt a little dizzy.

In a state of grogginess, he could hardly hear Luo Binghe’s voice anymore, let alone stop his suicidal act of destroying his sword. He vaguely thought, then so be it.

“Dying together” also meant being “together.”

It did not seem to be all that bad.

But there was a voice that could still be heard clearly━

Translation notes:

“…you profess to harbor no feelings and yet there is”

道是无情却有情: This line is from Zhuzhi Ci (the same “Zhuzhi” as Zhuzhi-Lang), which is a poem by Liu Yuxi, a poet of the Tang Dynasty, who based it off a folk song. To put it simply, the poem is about the mixed feelings (bafflement, affection and hope) of a young maiden who was unsure if the gentleman she liked reciprocate her feelings (he was indifferent before) when she heard him singing about his feelings for her from the river; it was after a sunshower, and the sky was clear on the East bank while it was still raining on the West bank, leading our maiden to equate his ambiguous feelings with the equally ambiguous weather.

The word 晴(qíng; clear) is used in the poem to refer to the weather but it also refers to 情(qíng; feelings) given the context of the poem. Tianlang-Jun literally used the word 情 (feelings) here, putting the emphasis on Shen Qingqiu’s feelings, thus referring to someone who says (or acts) like he has no feelings towards someone but he actually does, i.e. Shen Qingqiu with Zhuzhi-Lang (in the end he still cares about him) and Luo Binghe (L-O-V-E).

The original poem:
《竹枝词》
杨柳青青江水平,闻郎江上踏歌声。
东边日出西边雨,道是无晴却有晴。

  4. Thank you so much for the update!! <3 Just a question out of curiousity;
    Other sources name ch80 as 'ppp to save the world' more or less- is that only the name of the censored version [due to a pun lol] or did you intentionally change the ch title?

    1. No, we haven’t changed the title. 关键道具 – This is the title of the edited version. It’s definitely not papapa to save the world.

    2. The old version was papapa to save the world, the title of the revised version is Key Item.

    ✨✨✨✨
    Also, what other novels are by this author besides SVSSS?🤔this is an amazing novel and I’d love to read more once it’s finished😁🥰 Any recommendations?✨

    1. There is Heaven’s Official Blessing, but it have only about 22 chapters translater… Sory for my errors i’m not good at English xD

    2. Grandmaster of demonic cultivation (Mo dao zu shi) is finished already and very very good
      Can only recommend c:

    3. You can read Heavens Official blessings of scribid. Once you search it you can see a link which will take you to where the translator has translated quite a lot of chapters. Currently on chapter 180! You can also read Mo Dao Zu Shi by the same author as heavens official blessings (Mo xiang tong xiu) on Exiled Rebellion Scanlations (name of website).

    4. Also read Thousand Autumns by Meng xi shi. It’s So good and quite similar to some of mo xiang tong xiu’s works

    5. My fave novel from MXTX is still Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation (Mo Dau Zu Shi). You should give it a try. It’s a really good slow burn love story with a mix of mistery and ghost! 😝
      Highly recommended 😁

    6. Mo Dao Zu Shi/Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation and Heaven’s Official Blessing

  9. Thank you for the chapter!
    So is this the end? Novel Updates says chapter 80 is the end and your page… So is it the end? The other chapter coming out in the 5th, is that a extra?
    Anyway… Im going to go cry over the “Dying together still means together” quote. Okay cool, thanks bye~~~

  10. I’m crying a little because at this very tense moment, in poetic words, TLJ called Shizun a tsundere. WELL HE’S NOT WRONG. Ow ow ow the papapa in this chapter made me clench in sympathy that was brutal. I’m impressed that MTX didn’t go the easy way (tho when has she ever) and write something like “unexpectedly it began to feel good even though there was no lube or stretching whatsoever!” I’m glad that Shizun has gotten over his allergy to heartfelt conversations; it was almost too little, too late. Thanks for the chapter!

  11. I just remembered that a new chapter was supposed to be updated yesterday when I was re-reading TGCF!
    I was spoiled beforehand (sadly) so I knew what was going to happen, but I was still on the verge of crying when I read this. It must hurt a lot for SQQ, gosh I cringed at those painful descriptions.
    And Binghe… God, I love him so much and I feel so bad for him. He really is like a small child. And despite all the things he does, he’s really fragile especially when it comes to SQQ and his parents. It’s a good thing that he’s finally going to get the happiness he deserves after this.
    Lastly, f*ck you system. You really did screw with SQQ all this time. This time, you better assist him or I’ll plunge my 5 metre sword through the screen and cut off all your invisible wires and non-existent *bleep*

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  12. Bingmei didn’t know what to do.. awww his brothers beat him to it xD oh well he’s the first born so he’s that inexperienced maybe ahahaha.. but anyway.. SQQ T.T gahd that poem is definitely for you..

    Thank you very much for the chapter!!~ 🙇🙇🙇🙇

  13. Poor SQQ, this was likely not they way he wanted their first time to go down.
    Binghe is the most yandere character I have ever seen! I do hope they get to work things out and have a proper healthy, non-toxic relationship. Fingers crossed!
    (Worlds merging? Demons taking over? “This is fine”…)

    1. I dunno does it count as yandere when you are being controlled by a curse? XD nah he is way to soft

  14. I’m really sad for SQQ but really, I just re-read the novel and I can’t help but think, does this mean that LBH has cured SQQ from his poison?

    1. I think it was already cured before, but it wouldn’t have worked, because he needed to munch the flower while doing papapa….

  15. Thank you for the translation. I wasn’t expecting the papapa… The part about LBH mother and the end when he decide that die together means be together makes me really sad.
    I’m curious about the system… .

  16. Oh my goodness, I’m still kind of in shock because THIS FINALLY HAPPENED…. I knew it would, but knowing it and actually reading it are two completely different things, even if I’ve re-read this update about 5 times back-to-back by now…..

    Holy crap, that was brutal, even just imagining the pain….. poor SQQ, oh my gosh… it happened so fast it took me a big backpedal and re-read to fully realise….
    Seriously, F to pay respects to our poor Cucumber Bro, a real hero….
    [ F F F F F F F F F F F F F F F F F ]

    Honestly though, I probably cried more than Bing-mei this chapter…… the ending was what got me.
    …SQQ was so sweet to his Binghe, even after everything – and poor little (well… big….. *cough*) LBH… I thought my heart would burst for him 🙁

    ASDGFHGJKHPETO ERPOTJ BUT THAT REALLY HAPPENED?!?!?! AAAAAAAAAAA IT HAPPENED – – –

    – – – Thank you for the update!! *hugs*

  17. That papapa scene was just…*cringes*

    How sad. This was supposed to be an intimate bonding moment between two lovers, but it ended up looking like a horrific rape scene.

    It was too rushed. No preparation was done and with Luo Binghe’s size, just…ouch!

    It’s understanding that it turned out this way given the direness of the situation and lack of experience of both partners. Luo Binghe’s teariness was comical, but I also found it to very sad at the same time. He’s still emotionally fragile. The guilt he’ll feel from hurting Shen Qingqiu will only worsen his mentality.

    1. I know it was meant for comic relief, but I found Binghe’s reaction when he “woke up” so heartbreaking…. the descriptions of afterwards were sweet, yes, but even though it was technically consensual and it’s clear at this point that they really are in love, I totally agree with you that it did feel more like a horrific rape……

      SQQ was the one physically suffering. But, he said himself that he knew what would happen, so in a way the emotional and psychological weight of it all would be worse for Luo Binghe…
      SQQ at least could come to terms with what would happen, but LBH didn’t even have that…

      Now, he realises that, even though it was under the influence of the sword, he hurt the person he loves more than anything.

      When Luo Binghe asks Shen Qingqiu “Why didn’t you push me away; why didn’t you kill me?”, it’s especially heartbreaking since we know that SQQ doing so wouldn’t serve to right anything because it was something that he’d resigned himself to in order to save everyone – most of all Binghe – and so pushing him away would not only mean that it would all be for nothing, but actually hurt him more…

    2. Lbh doesn’t consider this their first time so mentally he will be ok in the future..with shizun’ help :’>

  18. Finally the self saving system shows up! I love it when we get the title card in books and movies, it’s like that moment in an anime where the theme song comes on. It always makes me so happy and brings me so much closure.

  19. A moment of reflection for Shizun’s broken chrysanthemum.😌. May it be able close again some day. 😂

  20. PAPAPA TO SAVE THE WORLD!! Also of COURSE BingMei cried during and afterward…. Poor SQQ. RIP chrysanthemum. I hope the System store stocks Prep H.

  21. “Give him a break! A deflowered Luo Binghe was simply even harder to placate than a deflowered maiden”

    Asdfghjklk

  22. Oh boy the feels. I’m happy but also sad, luo binghe wait wait! don’t do it! shizun is not going to die

  23. Oh my God… imagining the papapa scene as I read it made me feel the horror SQQ felt.. But, because this chapter really shows how much SQQ loves Binghe, it feels quite nice. Anyway I hope Yue Qing Yuan is fine!

    And, I think the system’s purpose of sending SQQ to the novel has always been to get him pushed down by Binghe! Hahahahaha. Why else would it take so long just to take out the jade pendant?! Poor Shen Yuan! But in exchange he gets himself a very doting and loving lover~~~ <3

    P.s. As always, thank you for the chapters!

  24. *winces* That papapa was horrific. No wonder SQQ cracks jokes at LBH’s sexual prowess. He learns fast though XD

  25. Welp, that’s “Papapa to save the world” out of the way. Let’s see how the scum system will finally live up to it’s name in the title.

    I really feel for ZZL and TLJ here. These two have been through so much shit they don’t deserve. As has Binghe’s poor mom for that matter.

  26. “Dying together” also meant being “together.”

    It did not seem to be all that bad.

    Don’t do this to meeeee

  27. figures that bingmei’s a crybaby in the sheets! rip poor shizun’s chrysanthemum…🙏

    tyvm for the translation!!!

  28. Aaah that’s right how could I forget..the only way the original lbh was able to contain xin mo was thru sex, but sqq is taking it a step further basically taking in all that demonic energy that will kill him. But the system can save him right? Can it save binghe too??

  29. SZL protecting TLJ despite his own damage pulled on my heart strings and TLJ stroking his nephews head made me almost in tears. Like awwwww…..

    I don’t know what to feel about the papapa. But as I thought, there must be feelings. Not that the villain and protagonist dont have feelings for each other. But Shizun here is opening his legs for his ‘PLAN’ and this ‘BULLDOZER’ wasn’t technically LBH. Physically it is him but mentally, emotionally and spiritually…NOT. So this really is that famous quote ‘papapa to save the world’.

    And WTH LOu Binghe, how can you go into SUICIDE when ur Shizun is still breathing!

    And the system’s line ‘Fake Guanyin item loading’ made me laugh so hard. The heck?! Someone’s running for his life here!!!

    But seriously,THANKS VERY MANY for this chapter. u guys are the best at translating in both excellence and speed department.Do you still have time for coffee/ sleep/ eat/fangirling/ studies? Please rest as much as you all can.

    Love from a malnourished reader.😘

  30. Is Demonic Energy use 魔气 (mó qì)?

    This’s the first time, I read this in engslih. I usually read it after being re-translated by WagaihaiNeko.

    Thanks a lot for the translation😋.

  31. Well I am not fond of rape scenes but technically it’s not rape since he willingly let LB do him. I guess it was necessary to keep him busy in his rampage and draw quickly the demonic energy. Extreme situation require extreme solutions lol Now LB don’t you dare leave your Shizun alone!

    Thank you 🙏

  32. I almost screamed so loud ah! Σ(゚Д゚) Didn’t see the papapa coming i’m so happy~ヽ(ヅ)ノ (but it’s a torture for shizun’s chrysanthemum.. oops|⁰⊖⁰)) About what Peak Lord Shen states about Luo Binghe’s Mom i think it’s so powerful how a mother’s love can be( ̄ー ̄)ゞ. Zhuzhi lang i hope you live, you’re my fave canon fodder as well as Lui Qingge~ as for Luo Binghe, ┻━┻ ︵ ¯\_༼ᴼل͜ᴼ༽_/¯ ︵ ┻━┻ *sighs dramatically* my big crying pup be gentle to your Shizun! I just hope this two will have a good life together for a lifetime and someday Luo Binghe will get the reassurance that Qingqui is willing to by his side protecc and love him ;-;ヽ(:3ノ ヽ)ノ I’m so scared reading the updates every single time (‾◡◝ ) _:(´ཀ`」 ∠):_ Translator, I love you thank for translating this novel!(つ◕౪◕)つ━☆゚.*・。゚

  33. I so called it… several chapters ago I mentioned a comparison to Superman and Lois Lane… if those 2 really did the deed then superman would need a kryptonite condom so it would be possible…

    A man who can satisfy 3000 women… would have a libido bigger than SQQs ass could tolerate! JACKHAMMER 9000! Fking hell… rectinol cream needed in copious amounts stat!! gdamn you LB!!

    Seriously that was the most damned unsmexy papapa I ever read… it was brutal… it was like something you would not want to see happen in any prono ever… I don’t think LB will be able to do his Shizun again… would you? I mean I’m sure Shizuns ass resembles a placenta right now… Gdammit… now I have birthing images in my head! gah!

    I have the most horrified expression right now… THANKS YOU SHITTY SYSTEM AND FK YOU AIRPLANE BRO HO!

    Even though there was tenderness in this chapter… it was lost to the JACKHAMMER 9000! fking hell… Every damn time I go by construction sites I will have this damn imagery!

    1. “kryptonite condom” lmao
      This is a life or death situation there is no time for that

  34. Sometimes, I wish MXTX would lay off the descriptions of the intestines……… smh. But otherwise I like their heart to heart. Binghe crying… being distraught! So happy to get here finally…

  35. That system’s message at the end, haha. So the so called self-saving system is actually the “SYSTEM” after all ? …Lol, I bet SQQ will be even more full of grievances now.

  36. Oh my poor Shen suffered too much. And how Luo Binghe pays him trying to kill himself that useless gong. Well, I still love that lap dog.

    1. No, they’re not. SQQ deliberately led LBH away from those two so that wouldn’t receive any more harm.

  37. Oh my….
    Oh, SQQ, such character development. Remember at the begining when you were checking out all the pretty “sisters?” Now you are ready to save Binghe through some pretty extreme means. And those “last words….” WAAAAAHHH!
    *sniffle*
    Thank you so much for the awesome translation and the poetry notes!

  38. Didn’t see the papapa coming in this chapter. I was not prepared. Lol! Like really, when everything literally falls apart, and he was being done. I usually hate lovey dovey scenes during battles, but not on this one. What a nice feeling after a very sad chapter. Great work MXTX!

    Thanks for translating! Kudos everyone!

  39. Finally read it. Loved the chapter. Loved the content too. I like these kind of scene and these kind of situation where one is out of control but too deeply in love and the receiver knows it and though suffers from it but still receives the love and love back all the same.

  40. Thank you for the update. I have been waiting for this update. I kept refreshing the page like every 5 mins since this morning. Happy reading 😊
