Chapter 39 – Escape from the Water Prison

The inside of the cave was dark and gloomy. Whenever the cold wind blew, Shen Qingqiu’s wet clothes would stick to his skin, making him shiver violently.

To one side, Luo Binghe’s outer robe still lay tossed on the ground.

Shen Qingqiu couldn’t help but get caught up in a bout of nostalgia. Even though Luo Binghe never got angry during the time that he trained Qing Jing Peak, unlike his current explosive temper, just then the way he looked when he retreated in a rage after Shen Qingqiu threw off his robe unexpectedly made Shen Qingqiu see a shadow of the little sheep he used to be.

After his bout of nostalgia, a vicious burst of cold made him want to sneeze. Shen Qingqiu didn’t have a better option, so he might as well grab that black robe and slowly pull it over his body.

There was nothing that could be done. After all, by refusing Luo Binghe’s robe he was not expressing self-righteous distaste—he simply couldn’t do this sort of thing in front of Luo Binghe.

In the original work, didn’t Luo Binghe give girls this very robe each time after sex?

What sort of indignity would this be in front of the protagonist!

Shen Qingqiu discovered that every time he sat to meditate, there would always be some form of outside interference. It happened that time at Ling Xi cave, and again now in the water dungeon.

The stone path rose and the water curtain stopped flowing. Gongyi Xiao hurriedly ran over the path, only managing to glance at Shen Qingqiu before his feet slipped under him.

He stammered, “S…s.. Elder Shen, you…”

Shen Qingqiu didn’t notice anything strange. “What about me?”

Gongyi Xiao had a strange look on his face like he didn’t know whether or not he should turn around and retreat. He hesitated outside of the stone platform and didn’t continue to advance. Following his gaze, Shen Qingqiu looked down.

Gongyi Xiao said, hesitantly, “Those clothes, aren’t they…”

Shen Qingqiu sighed. Luo Binghe’s outer robes.

Gongyi Xiao finally reacted. He hurriedly coughed, then asked, “How has Elder Shen been these past two days?”

Shen Qingqiu replied, “Satisfactory.” You don’t need to pay this much attention to me! Within the space of two days, three people had already visited. During this temporary detainment, he had been receiving such luxurious treatment. Huan Hua Temple must have upgraded their water dungeon recently to include such exceptional hospitality!

Gongyi Xiao said, “I heard that last night Luo Shixiong… was in a terrible rage when he left, so this junior was worried that he might have done something to Elder Shen…” As he spoke, his eyes couldn’t help but linger on the black outer robe.

Under his stare, Shen Qingqiu couldn’t help but pull the robe tighter over his chest.

What could he do? Luo Binghe had only thrown a tantrum and knocked holes all over the place1, knocking over half the cave. What’s with that look in your eye!

Shen Qingqiu sighed. “Luo Binghe is really like a fish back in water2 at Huan Hua Temple.”

Gongyi Xiao laughed bitterly. “Not only that, but Luo Shixiong’s spiritual power is outstanding, his conduct is unwavering, and his actions swift and decisive.3 Other people are left in the dust—it’s no wonder Shizun regards him so highly. If he weren’t so insistent on not becoming a formal disciple, I’m afraid it would never be my turn to take the place of the head disciple.”

Seeing the look on his face, Shen Qingqiu could sincerely sympathize.

Gongyi Xiao resolutely said, “This junior came to see you for an important matter. This morning, Peak Lord Shang requested a passage waist card from my master but was delayed by other matters and didn’t know when he could slip away. He seemed like he had some pressing business and let this junior bring in a letter.”

He reached into his bosom, where a letter was nestled.

Not only was the letter just hastily folded twice, but it also didn’t have a wax seal or a seal spell.

Shang Qinghua, how courageous!

Gongyi Xiao said, “Please relax, Elder, I’ve already looked through this letter.”

Relax my ass!

Gongyi Xiao continued, “However, I couldn’t understand what it was saying.”

Shen Qingqiu inwardly released a held breath. Good, it looked like he misread the situation. Shang Qinghua wouldn’t f*** up this badly. He most likely used some sort of secret code in the letter, so there was nothing to fear even if someone had intercepted it.

Shen Qingqiu shook open the paper with two fingers. After skimming it, his face turned green. After reading two lines, his face turned white. All sorts of colors bloomed on his face and crisscrossed with each other in a lively show.

Shen Qingqiu: “…”

This letter was written in English.

Not only that, it was written in horrible Chinglish4 that was full of errors.5

The grammar was entirely Chinese, and uncommon words were just replaced by their Pinyin equivalents.

Great author Airplane Shooting Towards the Sky, did you not consider the possibility that I can’t understand your toilet-tier English?

After putting together the pieces of the puzzle to guess the meaning of this message, Shen Qingqiu directed his energy to his hand. The paper broke into fragments and floated to the floor like snow in June—just like his mental state after enduring the rollercoaster of events that occurred the past few days.

As it turns out, it was him who underestimated Airplane Shooting Towards the Sky.

For Peerless Cucumber’s eyes only:

(Translator’s Note: Shen Qingqiu’s reader ID is Peerless Cucumber)

Everything is set, all the appropriate preparations have been made. The place has not changed. There was only a small mishap with the time. In order to let the Sun and Moon Dew Flower Seed mature as soon as possible, I got a little something to help it ripen but accidentally overdid it. Right now, it’s as ripe as it will ever get and will rot in no more than a week, so I hope you can leave Huan Hua Temple’s water prison as soon as possible. Don’t worry, it was only something like chemical fertilizer, there shouldn’t be any difference when using it. I hope.

What do you mean a little deviation from the plan? Was there even anything close to a plan in this person’s head?

You dare use chemical fertilizer to ripen that green plant that could be harmed by the pure sky? Just to ripen it! “There shouldn’t be any difference when using it”—this sort of guarantee is as trustworthy as the producers of powdered milk to enlarge your baby’s head!

Gongyi Xiao looked around and said, “Elder, are you done reading? If you have, please toss the letter into the lake to destroy it. In fact, last night Luo Shixiong issued an order that allowed no one but him to enter the prison. This junior must leave as early as possible in order to avoid being discovered.

Shen Qingqiu grabbed Gongyi Xiao and said, “Do me a favor.”

Gongyi Xiao responded, “Please ask, as long as I…”

Shen Qingqiu didn’t wait for him to finish with “can do it,” and sincerely asked, “Let me out.”

“…” Gongyi Xiao said with difficulty, “Elder, this is really out of the question.”

Shen Qingqiu said solemnly, “I have a reason to insist on leaving. I absolutely am not thinking of escaping trial by the four sects. After finishing my affairs, I will return to the water prison myself to await judgment. If you don’t believe me, we can establish a blood oath.”

One could not renege on a blood oath, but it didn’t really matter whether or not Shen Qingqiu returned to Huan Hua Temple’s water prison after completing his affairs. So, he was playing an immoral trick on Gongyi Xiao.

Gongyi Xiao said awkwardly, “I certainly believe you, but isn’t it of primary concern for Elder to stay detained in the water prison? What sort of thing is critical enough that you absolutely have to leave? If Elder Shen is willing to explain, I could inform everyone participating in the investigation….”

Shen Qingqiu had some second thoughts. Gongyi Xiao was a Huan Hua Sect disciple, and to be involved in the escape of a prisoner was no small sin on anyone’s head. This was a pretty upstanding youngster, and it wouldn’t be kind to defraud him. Within the limit of seven days, there were bound to be additional opportunities.

Consequently, he changed his tone and said, “You had better not. It wasn’t any worst-case scenario anyway.”

As he spoke, he collected all the paper fragments on the ground with difficulty, tossing them into the lake to destroy the evidence.

Because most of his body was wrapped by the Immortal-Binding Cables, movement was extremely difficult. Before having shifted twice, the black robe had slid off his body.

Gongyi Xiao had originally bent down to help, but after seeing that black robe cast aside to the ground, he unintentionally raised his head to take a look. His arms and legs went rigid at the scene.

Shen Qingqiu: “…..?”

The white garment on his body had been neatly ripped from his shoulder. It was obvious from a glance that someone had violently ripped it open with their bare hands. In addition, there were fragments of material left hanging, looking like they had been pulled out by a whip. On the fair skin left exposed by the damage, there were more than a few pale red scrapes. If one looked closely, there were also faint traces on his neck which had not yet faded.

Gongyi Xiao’s worldview received a devastating shock.

He said in a trembling voice, “Elder, you….are you sure it’s nothing urgent?”

No wonder Luo Binghe had ordered that no one but him was allowed to enter—even if they had the passage waist card—and blocked even Peak Lord Shang’s attempts.

So it’s like this!

Simply a rebellious disciple!

Devoid of conscience!

Worse than a beast!

Gongyi Xiao inwardly cried tears of blood for Elder Shen. Shen Qingqiu himself said, vacantly, “It’s nothing urgent?”

Gongyi Xiao was secretly moved. How….how can Elder Shen show this kind of indifferent expression even in this kind of moment!

Sheng Qingqiu finished tossing all the paper fragments into the lake and said, “You don’t need to take the words I said just now to heart. You….”

Gongyi Xiao suddenly stood up, turned around, then left!

Shen Qingqiu’s expression turned gloomy. I just said you don’t need to take me seriously and you just immediately leave? Isn’t this a bit too blunt?

Who knew that before an hour had passed, Gongyi Xiao would return with an object in his hand. He walked over to Shen Qingqiu, undid the seals binding it, and waved it in a slanted motion.

With the flash of a white blade, the bindings around Shen Qingqiu’s body abruptly loosened, feeling similar to an electric circuit had suddenly been connected. Stretching his fingers, his spiritual energy was unmistakably back in operation and flowing smoothly. Last time it had mysteriously been blocked by the poison, but after being bound by Immortal-Binding Cables for two days the poison had unexpectedly been suppressed again. Could it have been a fighting fire with fire, two negatives make a positive kind of principle?

The Immortal-Binding Cables dropped to the ground in pieces. Gongyi Xiao tossed over the thing in his hands, and Shen Qingqiu reached out his hand to catch it.

The Xiu Ya Sword!

Holding the sword, Shen Qingqiu was overjoyed and astonished. Looking at Gongyi Xiao, he said, “I thought this was supposed to be with the Old Palace Master.”

Gongyi Xiao said in an apprehensive tone, “Even if I risk being punished by my master, this junior could not sit aloof while Senior is disgraced. I believe Senior Shen, please follow me!”

Shen Qingqiu involuntarily felt a sense of helplessness.

That….I keep feeling like….he seems to have misunderstood something significant….

But….forget about it….this is fine….

Shen Qingqiu said decisively, “Good!”

Although the demonic blood in his body was still dormant, Luo Binghe would be able to know where he had gone no matter where he ran.

However, it didn’t matter if he knew where he was as long as Luo Binghe couldn’t chase him there!

Gongyi Xiao said, deeply worried, “Senior, you… can you walk? Do you need me to carry….”

Shen Qingqiu’s face darkened and he took a step, quickly moving his body to prove that he could in fact walk, and walk very quickly at that!

Gongyi Xiao startled, then promptly followed close behind. Unexpectedly, when the two stepped outside the limit of the stone platform and onto the path, the water curtain which had just been raised started spraying water with a boom.

Shen Qingqiu ran but stopped quickly, or else he would have been caught head-on by the water. The two stepped back onto the stone platform, and the water curtain retreated again.

It was like something was deliberately preventing them from leaving. Isn’t this a bit too well-designed?!

Gongyi Xiao suddenly said, “I forgot, once the water prison has been activated, there must be someone on the stone platform; if this person leaves and there isn’t enough weight on the platform, the water curtain will automatically reactivate even if the mechanism has shut off.”

He didn’t have the experience of helping a prisoner escape, so it was natural that he did not remember this sort of matter.

Shen Qingqiu said, “In other words, there has to be one person left on the stone platform before the others can leave?”

Gongyi Xiao nodded. Shen Qingqiu said, “Then you stay here.”

Gongyi Xiao: “….”

After saying this, he flicked his sleeves and headed towards the outside. Behind, Gongyi Xiao weakly raised his hand and said, “Senior Shen, even though junior is very willing to help—but, if you don’t have me to lead the way, I’m afraid you won’t be able to escape….ah….”

Shen Qingqiu looked back and added, “Wait for me to come back.”

Gongyi Xiao blankly stood in the same place. He had half a mind to follow but was hindered by the fact that he had no way of leaving the limits of the stone platform and had no alternative but to wait quietly. In a short amount of time, he heard a muffled sound from outside. Shen Qingqiu walked in dragging a person by the back of his neck.

Shen Qingqiu dragged the still unconscious pocked-face disciple onto the stone platform, patted Gongyi Xiao on the shoulder, and said, “I happened to see this one on patrol and borrowed him for a bit. Let’s go!”

In reality, he didn’t just “happen” to see him. There were four people on patrol, and Shen Qingqiu had hidden in a dark place and carefully selected this mouthy disciple!



Reika’s Notes:

  • This chapter was translated by Lily.
  • “Worse than a beast!” – Did Gongyi Xiao think Binghe whipped him? Or did he think Binghe had taken advantage of his own master?

  1. I know LB is angry but why can’t he remember their conversation before that conference? SQQ asked him if he would be willing to pay anything to be strong person. Physically and emotionally tortured and all that. LB is so smart. Can he not connect the dots? SQQ did it for him to become stronger. Plus, we know he loves SQQ. The choking and ruining his reputation just seems too extreme. How will he feel when he wants to get with SQQ? Are apologies enough for all that abuse

    1. Binghe is Angry because he got betrayed by Shen Qingqiu after what he said in the past..

    2. Also even if Binghe is not angry about the abyss, for me who in a world will not get angry pushing u down into abyss after telling them that demon race doesn’t matter as long as ur good/kind..?

    3. Let me explain this to u briefly,Do you see his expression of sadness at not understanding what Shen Qingqiu was doing at that moment(donghua)?Luo Binghe was heartbroken, he wanted to know what made his Shizun treat him that way.
      He expected the support of Shen Qingqiu, who will help him. The words he said earlier gave Luo Binghe hope that his Shizun would never treat him badly no matter what, but suddenly Shen Qingqiu rejected him and hurt him.
      He did not feel angry at what his Shizun did, he was not disappointed, he did not expect an apology, he just wanted an explanation.

  2. Lmfaaoo Mc got his payback on that annoying pocked guy X’D nd I love gongyi xiao! He’s such a good boi -3- altho I’m curious to know what misunderstandings he got lol

  3. Noooo poor little Gongyi Xiao, he only wants to help but he’s going to get into so much damn trouble for this ;___; </3

  4. oh god! i’ve been reading up to this chapter while at work and i have been suppressing myself from laughing out loud at the office…i’m feeling so much anxiety because sqq and binghe just can’t get their feelings sorted out but at the same time the humor in all these chapters…i think i’m going to go crazy (lol)

  5. pocked-face disciple got what was coming to him hah!

    awwwwww im beginning to ship gongyi and qingqiu, they treat each other so well. now that the snow lotus binhe is dead and he’s all scary and brutal, gongyi can be the sweet darling XD


  7. Gongyi Xiao’s innocent eyes has been tainted… poor kid.
    And I legit can guess that Luo Binghe will think that Shen Qingqiu eloped away with Gongyi Xiao, and thus will have to be another object that will activate the yandere button inside him.
    A true, loyal cannon fodder indeed. I hope Luo Binghe won’t think that way and atleast clear up ONE f***ing misunderstanding between them. Even. Just. One.

  8. GOT7-IGOT7-Jacky

    Welcome to the unending galore of misunderstandings XDDDD Gongyi Xiao is such a precious cinnamon roll that needs to be protected at all cost XD

  9. LOL this chapter is so hilarious yet so cute! Gongyi’s misunderstanding at least brings good chance to our Shizun XD Hope he’s save from Binghe’s wrath tho-

  10. LOL….

    Next to our scum villain, I think my next favorite character is now Gongyi. The sweet child is probably worried that the reason why Luo Binghe wasn’t allowing people to enter the water prison was that he was having fun raping his shizun. I hope that Binghe doesn’t kill him.

    That said, what would the Mountain Sect and its disciples do if they find about this misunderstood realizations that Gongyi has. Maybe, a sect war would happen.

  11. Excuse me, but I think these lines are translated kind of incorrectly:

    [He said in a trembling voice, “Elder, you….are you sure it’s nothing urgent?”]


    [Gongyi Xiao inwardly cried tears of blood for Elder Shen. Shen Qingqiu himself said, vacantly, “It’s nothing urgent?”]

    In the raws, these lines went like this: [他顫聲道 : “前輩… …你… …你當真不要緊嗎?”] and [公儀蕭心中為沈前輩流下了血淚, 沈前輩卻茫然道 : “我不要緊啊?”]

    I think the phrase 不要緊 is closer in meaning to “are you okay” and “I’m alright” instead of “it’s nothing urgent”

    1. 不要紧 [bù yào jǐn ] – meaning: unimportant; not serious; it doesnt matter; never mind ;

      It’s the translator’s interpretation of the line. SQQ was not saying “I’m alright.” He’s saying “never mind.” There’s a big difference between “I’m alright” and “It’s not important/serious.” He’s totally not alright. In fact, SQQ was pretty desperate to escape but he just decided not to involve his fellow canon fodder Gongyi Xiao.

    2. Hmm, I was under the impression that GongYi was asking after Shen QingQiu’s well-being… But your explanation makes sense too. Thank you for explaining!

    1. Are u freaking serious? Some people r trying to read the book properly, stop spoiling. Even if there is a spoiler tag it doesn’t make any difference. Please delete ur comment

  12. Gongyi! Hurry, c’mere and let the readers protect you, you cinnamon bun! I just love how Gongyi’s imaginations shot up like a rocket
    How I saw Gongyi’s mind:
    Red Scrapes (=”hickeys”)
    Ripped Clothes (=struggle)
    Lord Shen’s “urgent matter” (=something “terrible” happened)
    LB’s coat and behavior of not letting anyone else in the SQ’s prison (=S H A D Y A S F prime suspect)
    =Gongyi: there can only be one thing that happened….he was disgraced! ( OДO)!!!

  13. Lord have I missed his pettiness. 😂

    I hope Shizun is able to take his meds before he gets caught by LBH.

  14. I’m in tears. The amount if salt that sqq dishes out even in dire situations is lowkey the best thing about him.

    If you’re still looking, I’d love to help out! My chinese isn’t amazing but I’d like to think that I know enough to edit!

  15. Gonyi is​ ​such a​ sweetheart~ I hope nothing bad happen to​ him. Still wondering how much did​ his imagination run​ to.

  16. @[email protected] thank you for taking on this novel! Thankyouthankyou🧡

    I can’t wait XD for when Shen Qingqiu finally realized WHY his ~little sheep in wolfs clothing~ is being so crazy towards him,


  17. Gongyi TT such a sweet honey bunny… i hope he didnt catch a bad event after helping shen qingqiu
    Thank you for the translation ♡

  18. How was SQQ able to shred the paper when his spiritual energy was repressed? 🤔
    Haha, Gongyi Xiao, I hope you will survive LBH’s wrath. Such a cute, earnest junior. I can just imagine him trying to defend SQQ’s honour from the villainous LBH. XD

  19. “… just then the way he looked when he retreated in a rage after (Shen Qingqiu) threw off his robe unexpectedly made (Shen Qingqiu) see a shadow of the little sheep he used to be.”


    1. If you recall, in the last chapter LBH’s face turned red and he ran away like a flustered maiden.

  20. I am so so glad this novel did not go down the rape route! I love these fluffy moments and funny misunderstandings. I’m guessing that the whip left marks resembling hickeys which led to Gongyi Xiao’s misunderstanding… 😂

  21. Thank you so much for this translation!!

    I love this chapter. I prefer those kinds of misunderstandings. Poor kid really thought something awful had happened to SQQ, huh? And to think SQQ had just changed his mind because it wouldn’t be nice to make Gongyi Xiao betray them and suffer from the consequences (most likely) by himself… Oh well, here’s to hoping he’ll be fine!

    I wonder how long it’ll take for SQQ to realize that if LBH sometimes treats him like he did the girls he fucked in the novel (like, the food he cooked for him, or now the coat)… maybe that’s because LBH’s feelings towards him are… more than a disciple’s towards his teacher? Just saying. It’s kinda obvious LBH’s got a crush.

    I love Airplane dude, and SQQ who roasts him for his letter. It was a pretty lighthearted chapter all things considered. I just hope it’s not a calm before the storm kind of thing…

    1. Airplane is the perfect boke! I’m sure his knowledge of horticulture is on par with his English skills!

    2. I feel strange about LB’s so called crush. He chased him down. Basically smashed his head into a wall, choked him, force fed his demon blood and hurt him with it, and let’s not forget ruining his reputation and probably setting up the whole thing to get him in that terrible prison

  22. Thank you so much for the chapter! I tried MTL a bit of this novel because I was too anxious to know what would happen next, but though I understood most of what was happening, it truly doesn’t hold a candle to your translation so I decided it’s better to wait it out regardless, so I’m very grateful to you for updating so regularly!

    P.D: Gongyi xiao you sweet darling child, get your mind off the gutter lmao.

  23. Omg…he asked if SQQ could walk! LOL definitely a serious misunderstanding! There’s no papapa yet!

    The poison got suppressed because of LBH I bet! Although LBH should have explained lol too many misunderstandings…

  24. It’s getting really exicting these past chapters and this one was very funny too!
    Thanks so much for the translations!

  25. Thank you for the fast translations and the addition of pin yin to the footnotes! 😀 Can’t wait for the next chapter! You guys are awesome!

  26. This chapter is quite funny, from GYX misunderstanding what happened and jumping to conclusions on his own, to SQH toilet tier Chinglish (Ŏ艸Ŏ)
    and our MC is quite spiteful to purposely choose that pocked face disciple, but hey, he deserved that >.<

    Thank you so much for translating this! looking forward to october 30th!

  27. Kassandra Alanis


    Bing-mei is totally gonna FLIP lmao once again his Shizun is running off with other men and never him fffff he just thinks he got rejected YET AGAIN and yet here SQQ is accepting help from a disciple from a rival sect…lmao the amount of vinegar Bing-mei will be drinking ….lights candle for Shen Qingqiu

  28. Kassandra Alanis

    Gongyi Xiao s such a good kid…I’m dying though bc he obviously thinks Luo BingHe “took advantage” of SQQ fffffff asking SQQ if he could walk….I MEAN his thought process isnt TOO crazy…an angry Luo BingHe forbids anyone else from entering the prison (to keep another almost whipping incident from happening) but after seeing SQQ with his clothes torn, with suspicious red marks, wearing Luo BingHe’s outer robe like a flag planted on a new shiny piece of land…>.> Gongyi Xiao though…running away (eloping!) with the demon’s bride…you planting death flags son lol

    I MTL-ed this novel some time ago but I’m sure I only got about 80% of it right so I’m really happy and grateful to the translators! Thank you Lily for today’s chapter ♡♡♡

    ALSO Airplane bro…bro…pls…

    1. “wearing Luo BingHe’s outer robe like a flag planted on a new shiny piece of land” – I like the way you think!

  29. Eagerly waiting for the 30th for the next chapter. Once a week update is also ok. Quicker releases would be aq boon. I really like this novel. My wish is tha tit doesn’t get dropped. This one and “the grandmaster of demonic cultivation’ are my most favourite novels right now. And they may become two of my all time favorites.

  30. I think Gongyi Xiao thought that Binghe ate SQQ tofu XD What will LBH do now? Now we can only wait for the new release 😀

    Thanks for the new chapter ^_^

  31. I think GYX thought that LBH took advantage of SQQ in *ahem* ways… :3:3:3 I mean, he’s not wrong…. He just assumed it far too early :3 hehehe thanks for the chapter~

  32. Thank you for this chapter. It’s hearthwarming to see how many people there are that woukd risk their position for SQQ. Even sometimes based on misunderstandings. Well SQQ was actually whipped, but by another person..

  33. he definitely thought SQQ was violated, based on thr “can you walk” part and the outer robe. the whipping is normal in that dungeon, I thought.

    I hope the plant isn’t smelly and rotting when he gets to it…

  34. ResidentialPsycho

    Pfft…. The misunderstandings are so strong…. The problem is that Luo Binghe really does want to violate Shen Qingqiu. Shen Qingqiu is so oblivious. Poor guy. I wonder if Airplane will be able to clarify what the heck is going on for him.

  35. Thank you Lily and the whole BC novels team for your hardwork & dedication 😚💕

    Anyways did Gongyi Xiao suspected Luo Binghe did the thing to Shen QingQiu? Oh, you poor sweet summer child.

  36. The misunderstanding is truly lifting this chapter to the range of pathos. Gongyi Xiao is being truly noble here (and this reader has been spoiled so will fall silent now).

  37. Oh the mystery behind what our Gongyi is imagining xD ..and Bingmei would activate his rage mode if he knew aaah..

    Thanks for the chapter!!~

    1. Did LB forget that whole conversation about he would go through any physical and mental problems to become stronger? SQQ did it for his sake. Yes, LB should be angry, but he remembers everything else SQQ says. Why not that. He’s smart. He should have connected the dots. Later, trying to get SQQ to be with him might get difficult. I mean LB is ruining SQQ’s life

  38. Just found this and I am HOOKED! Thank you so much for the translation, it’s an amazing job! And now I have to be patient and wait for the next parts instead of binge-reading it all, oh no… But I will be patient! And very grateful for all your efforts!

  39. Worse than a beast! Or perhaps he thought Luo BingHe had taken advantage of his master in a somewhat ‘dangerous’ play involving a whip (´∀`)♡
    Shang Qinghua and Shen Qingqiu combo never fail to make my day hahah
    And thank you for the chapter! This is one of the most regularly updated novel that I follow. I could definitely feel all of the translators’ hard work! Thank you so much!! 💕💕💕

  40. I like Gongyi Xiao so I hope he will be ok after helping Shen Qingqiu escpae. Luo Binghe please spare him!

    Thank you:D

  41. Bwahahahaha!!!! I’m dying at the misunderstanding.

    I can’t wait until the conclusion of this arc.

    This 5-day release schedule is so nice. You’re spoiling us. >__<

  42. Aish~ so many misunderstandings ah, why cant they just talk and hug it out~ stop being stunned or speechlees or loss in thought or thinking too much- the hurts is tooo much man. Just hug and cuddle it out hmmmmmm? Hmmmmm? That always melts my heart and I think my melting has been long over due…. Sooner or later imma be made to cry 😢 please be nice

  43. Airplane’s toilet-tier Chinglish letter made me LOL, especially where he just writes out the words he didn’t know in pinyin. Now, run, SQQ, run!

    Thanks for the update!

  44. Luo Binghe is gonna drink a gazillion litres of vinegar soon. 😅 He will think SQQ eloped Gongyi Xiao. _(:з」∠)_
    Poor Gongyi Xiao. RIP, kid.

    Thank you so much, Lily!!!!

    1. I would leave ASAP. After all Binghe is ruining SQQ’s life. He also choked him. And ruined his reputation, got him locked up. Binghe healed his hand but just let everyone think he was in with the demons

  45. Woo hoo! New chap x3 Thank yuuu

    Now this, was amusing. I prefer these one on one shenanigans after the ‘monkey wrench in heart’ angst/hurt of the last chapter =3=

    I hope LBH catches up to them and learns about the dew medicine SQQ needs. Lets clear up at least ONE misunderstanding, okay?

    This novel should just be called the Scum Villain’s System of Misunderstandings.

  46. Way to go SQQ! Don’t worry Gongyi Xiao, no man gets left behind!

    Except Binghe maybe. Yandere disciple is not going to take this well…
