Chapter 18: Why Is Master Just So Not Obedient?    

   第二天天还没亮,感觉身体十分轻松的穆辰就起身去了炼丹房。

The next day before the sun was even up, a very refreshed Mu Chen got up and went to the pill concocting room.

   在药草架子上挑挑拣拣拿了十几份药草,穆辰对身边的道童说:“去杞阳宫,摘三个藤元果,要八成熟的。”

He picked over a dozen medical herbs from the medical herb shelf and spoke to the child cultivator by his side, “Go to Qiyang Palace and get three Eon Rattan Fruits, I want those that are eighty percent ripe.”

   道童应了一声,赶紧跑去摘。

The child cultivator responded back and hurried ran to take some.

   杞阳宫排行第二,地位仅次于掌门所在的崇阳宫,也是整个崇云门果子长得最好的地方。宫主端木风又有个特别的爱好——酿酒,所以种了一山的灵果。辈分小的弟子没胆量去尝试,但像褚千双这种一代弟子,馋了就去二师伯/师叔那里摘来吃,就连镜明对那里也十分熟悉。不一会儿,小道童把三个藤元果摘了来,个个大如拳头,色泽鲜亮,还带着点点露珠。

Qiyang Palace was ranked second, it’s position was only second to the Chongyang Palace the Sect Master resides in, it was also the location where fruits grew the best in Lofty Cloudy Sect. The Palace Master Duan Mufeng also has a special hobby—brewing wine, so he planted his entire mountain full of spirit fruits. The younger disciples did not have the courage to go, but disciples of the generation of Chu Qianshuang who are gluttons would go to their Second Martial Uncle to get some to eat. Even Jing Ming was very familiar with the place. Not long after, the child cultivator came back with three Eon Rattan Fruits, each one was as big as a fist with vivid coloring. Bits of dew were still on them.

   穆辰把它们放在一个碗里,一掌将其拍成果泥,再把已经碾成末的药粉倒进去,搅拌一下放进炼丹炉。

Mu Chen put them in a bowl, then patted them into mush with one pat. He then poured in the medical powder he had already crushed then stirring it and placing it into the pill concocting stove.

   九阳冥火注入炉内,半盏茶的时间过后,穆辰解开炼丹炉的盖子,瞬间藤元果的清香扑面而来,纤长的手指捏着一根竹签,嗖嗖嗖嗖穆辰下手如飞,把丹药穿成糖葫芦状,回忆着儿时的记忆里别的孩童吃过的糖葫芦的样子,穆辰蹙了蹙眉,还像还差一点东西。

His Nine Yang Dark Fire went into a stove, and about the time of half a cup of tea later, Mu Chen lifted the cover of the stove. Immediately, the sweet scent of the Eon Rattan Fruit assaulted his face. His fine long fingers pinched a bamboo stick and he moved as if he was flying, forming the pills into the shape of a tanghulu. He recalled from his memories on the tanghulu the other children ate and Mu Chen frowned a bit. There seems to be something else missing.

   一旁的的道童把一碗蜂蜜递过去,“宫主,是不是这个?”

A child cultivator by his side handed a bowl of honey over, “Palace Master, is it this?”

   穆辰恍然大悟,对,就是这个!

Mu Chen suddenly realized, yes, it was this!

   把丹药串从蜜里沾了沾,穆辰举着自制糖葫芦心情很好的走了。

He dipped the stringed pills in the honey and then very happily left with his improvised tanghulu.

   几个道童一脸复杂,那个表情,真的是没法言说。

The child cultivators all had complicated faces. That expression on Mu Chen was really making them at loss for words.

   岳明泽一来,就看到穆辰举着一串奇怪的东西从丹房里出来,待看清是什么东西之后嘴角抽了抽,丹药还能这么吃?师叔不愧是近年来最天才的丹师,这份创造力,无人能及!

The scene Yue Mingze was met with was one of Mu Chen carrying a strangely stringed thing from the pill room. When he took a closer look at what the thing was, his lips twitched. Pills could actually be eaten this way? Martial Uncle truly was worthy to be known as the most talented pill cultivator these past years, this kind of ingenuity, no one can compare to it!

   穆辰举着丹药串,一脸冷漠的从岳明泽身边擦肩而过,一个眼神都没给对方,直接无视过去。

Mu Chen coldly passed by Yue Mingze while carrying the pill-stick, he didn’t even look at him and directly ignored him.

   这阵子顾云玦的灵力就像坐了飞剑一样,嗖嗖往上窜,穆辰一开始担心他境界不稳,心境跟不上,没想到对方好似不知道什么是瓶颈一般,一口气冲到炼气二层。就在刚才他突然发现对方睡了一觉,灵力已经到了炼气二层巅峰。担心对方进速太快,那副小身板承受不来灵力给经脉带来的压力,穆辰这才想要炼制几枚药效温和的丹药润护经脉,因为加了灵果,趁新鲜吃了效果才好,总之岳明泽现在来的很不是时候。

Presently, Gu Yunjue’s spiritual power rose like it was riding on a flying sword and Mu Chen started to worry that his cultivation will become unstable, that his mind will be unable to keep up with it. But he didn’t expect that the other broke through into Qi Condensation Stage Two like he didn’t know what a bottleneck was. He worried that his progress would be too past and that his small body wouldn’t be able to endure the pressure the spiritual power gave his meridians. As such, Mu Chen had went to refine a couple pills with gentle effects to protect his meridians. Because he had added spirit fruits, the effect would only work while it was fresh. In short, Yue Mingze came at a really bad timing.

   岳明泽尴尬的摸摸头,总感觉自己来多了。

Yue Mingze awkwardly rubbed his head, he feels that he was coming by too often.

   赶紧追上去,岳明泽看了眼穆辰的脸色,发现他没有不耐烦的样子,这才开口道:“师叔这串丹药做的挺好看。”

He hurriedly caught up and observed Mu Chen’s complexion. Seeing that he did not look impatient, he finally spoke, “Martial Uncle, this stick of pills is very pretty.”

   穆辰嫌弃的看了他一眼,脸上写满了你是不是傻,他纠正道:“好用。”

Mu Chen looked at him with disdain, his face had “are you an idiot” written all over it and he corrected him, “It’s easy to use.”

   “师叔说得对,”岳明泽马屁没拍好,也知道这一套在穆辰这里行不通,他有些忐忑的问:“我就是想问问,师叔怎么才能救治星璇道长。”

“Martial Uncle is right.” Yue Mingze flatteringly said and also knows that it won’t work on Mu Chen, so he asked somewhat nervously, “I wanted to ask, what should be done for Martial Uncle to be willing to heal Daoist Xing Xuan.

   穆辰歪头打量了岳明泽一会儿,问他:“你希望我把他救好?”

Mu Chen tilted his head to size up Yue Mingze for a moment and then asked, “You want me to save him?”

   岳明泽恳切的点头,他在门内的根基实在不稳,如果这次和万剑门交好的机会再把握不好,门内那些长老可能会再生事端。

Yue Mingze earnestly nodded, his foundation within the sect wasn’t too stable, if he didn’t grab this chance to make friendly relations with Ten Thousand Sword Sect, the elders in the sect might stir up trouble again.

   穆辰面无表情的点了头,“下午把他带来吧,看在你的面子上,破例一次。”

Mu Chen expressionlessly nodded, “Then bring him here this afternoon. I will make an exception for you this one time.”

   “师叔!”岳明泽激动的看着穆辰,两只手都不知道往哪里放,师叔这种性格,竟然会为了他妥协!岳明泽撇了撇嘴,想说什么又不知道说什么好,脑海中突然冒出一个念头,岳明泽不经大脑的就问了出来,“师叔您上次说想娶我……”

“Martial Uncle!” Yue Mingze emotionally looked at Mu Chen. He didn’t even know where to place his hands anymore, for his Martial Uncle to actually make a compromise for him with that personality of his! Yue Mingze’s lips twitched, he wanted to say something but he didn’t know what to say. Suddenly, a thought suddenly rose in his mind and he very brainlessly asked it out, “Martial Uncle, you said you wanted to marry me last time…”

   穆辰熟练的抬腿,一脚把岳掌门踹出炎阳宫,白色的衣摆上银色的云纹随着优雅的步子来回摇曳,竟然带着一股高贵和冷艳之气。让路过的镜明下意识的低头看看自己的衣摆,打算也让人秀个这样的云纹。哪天趁岳明泽不注意,套个麻袋把丫踹飞,自己的衣摆肯定也这么帅。

Mu Chen proficiently raised his leg and kicked Yue Mingze out of Yanyang Palace. His white robes with silver pattern gently swayed gracefully with his steps and actually carried a noble and elegant aura.

   顾云玦举着个丹药串,心里某个地方软的一塌糊涂,享受着穆辰对他独有的温柔,顾云玦眯起眼,一口吞掉一个。

Gu Yunjue raised the pill-stick and a place in his heart soften into a complete mess. He enjoyed Mu Chen’s exclusive gentleness. Gu Yunjue’s eyes narrowed and he readily ate each one.

   在穆辰催促的眼神中,顾云玦嘴巴抖了抖,笑道:“好吃!”

Under Mu Chen’s urging expression, Gu Yunjue’s mouth shook a bit, and he smiled, “It’s very tasty!”

   他保证,小师尊连果核都没去,藤元果味道确实鲜美,可是果核却异常的苦,那个丹药是又苦又甜,还带着一股涩涩的药味,而且外面这层蜂蜜是鬼蜂酿造的药蜜,味道中还有一丝腥臭,吃下去无疑是对味蕾的折磨。顾云玦硬着头皮,一口气把这一串都吞下去,看穆辰的眼神依旧温柔,只要是师尊做的,毒药他也能吃下去,何况只是难吃了一点点而已,效果还是不错的。丹药下肚之后,这两天被撑的有些刺疼的经脉瞬间好转了些,顾云玦拉着穆辰的手,夸赞道:“师尊真棒,效果特别好。”

He could swear that his little master did not even get rid of the fruit pit. The flavor of the Eon Rattan Fruit really was delicious, but the fruit fit was exceptionally bitter. That pill was both bitter and sweet and had a trace of tart medicine taste. In addition, the honey used on the outside was the medical honey made by the ghost bee, so the flavor had a trace of fishiness. Eating it was no doubt a torment to the tastebuds. Gu Yunjue braced himself and swallowed the entire stick of pills in one breath, looking at Mu Chen as gentle as before. As long as his Master made it, even if it was poison he would eat it, let alone something that was just slightly unpalatable. The effect was pretty good too. With the pills eaten, his meridians that had been hurting a bit from too much spiritual power immediately improved a bit. GU Yunjue pulled Mu Chen’s hand, praising him, “Master’s great! The effect is especially good.”

   穆辰这才微微挑起一点嘴角,给了小徒弟一个浅浅的微笑。小徒弟果然越养越贴心,不像岳明泽小的时候给他什么都哭着说难吃,一点都不可爱。

The corner of Mu Chen’s lips finally raised a bit, giving his little disciple a faint smile. His little disciple was really becoming more and more considerate, unlike that Yue Mingze who would always cry and say it’s disgusting when he was young. He was really not cute.

   此时,炎阳宫外,却迎来一位特殊的客人。

Right at this moment, a special guest was welcomed outside of Yanyang Palace.

   穆辰刚把顾云玦喂饱,就听道童道宫外来了个特别有气势的黑衣人,说是姓御,宫主的老朋友。

Mu Chen had just fed Gu Yunjue full when he heard a child cultivator say that a rather imposing black-dressed man was waiting outside. He said his surname was Yu, Palace Master’s old friend.

   顾云玦默默抽过穆辰手中的帕子,把嘴巴擦干净,笑的温和,“师尊朋友很多吗?”

Gu Yunjue silently took the handkerchief from Mu Chen’s hand and wiped his mouth clean. He then gently smiled and asked, “Does Master have a lot of friends?”

   穆辰摇头,也没理会顾云玦的话,对人说:“让他进来吧。”

Mu Chen shook his head and didn’t bother with Gu Yunjue’s words and said to the other, “Let him in.”

   这话一说完,就见门外竹林里落下一个黑色的人影,身材高大,五官俊朗,气势沉默冷硬,一看就长居高位,不好接触。来人便是万剑门门主,御天翊。

The moment he said that, he saw a black figure land outside of the bamboo forest. His stature was tall, his face handsome with a cold and silent imposing aura. One look at him and you would be able to tell he was of high status, someone that was hard to get in touch with. The person was precisely Ten Thousand Sect’s Sect Master, Yu Tianyi.

   被人请进来,御天翊没用穆辰说话,自己在客位上坐下,眼神扫过顾云玦,接着看穆辰,低沉的声音缓缓道:“知道你喜欢小动物,没想到还喜欢孩子。”

After being invited in, Yu Tianyu did not wait for Mu Chen to speak and led himself to a seat. His eyes swept by Gu Yunjue then looked at Mu Chen, his deep and low voice slowly said, “I knew you liked small animals, I didn’t expect you to also like children.”

   穆辰不怎么热情的来了句:“你废话变多了。”

Mu Chen gave a rather unenthusiastic line, “You’re speaking too much nonsense.”

   换做任何一人,都没人敢这样对御天翊这么说话,御天翊也不允许别人这样对他不敬,然而这人却是穆辰。御天翊不仅没有动气,反而笑了笑,对穆辰这个冷淡的态度有些无奈的道:“几年不见,你就不能对我好点?”见穆辰穆辰蹙眉不耐,他叹了口气,问:“在哪儿谈?”

If it were someone else, they wouldn’t dare to speak like this to Yu Tianyi. Yu Tianyi also would not permit someone else to speak to him so disrespectfully, but the person right now was Mu Chen. Not only was Yu Tianyi not angered, he smiled instead and was somewhat helpless toward Mu Chen’s cold attitude. “We haven’t seen each other for years, can’t you be nicer to me?” He saw that Mu Chen was still frowning and finally sighed, “Where shall we talk?”

   穆辰把顾云玦交给镜明,示意让对方带他出去玩,顾云玦不满的拉住穆辰的手,脸色很冷。他看出御天翊对穆辰态度不对,师尊想跟一个男人独处,还要清场?呵!

Mu Chen handed Gu Yunjue over to Jing Ming, indicating to him to take him out to play. Gu Yunjue unhappily held onto Mu Chen’s hand, his face very cold. He could tell that Yu Tianyi’s attitude toward Mu Chen was strange, Master wants to be alone with a man, can it be any clearer? Hmph!

   穆辰伸手拎起顾云玦的衣领子,直接甩给镜明,对不听话的小徒弟特别的严厉。

Mu Chen reached out to pick up Gu Yunjue by his collar and threw him to Jing Ming. He had to be especially strict toward his disobedient little disciple.

   顾云玦气到脸发白。

Gu Yunjue was so angered his face turned white.

   把所有人都弄走,穆辰设了个静音结界,看着御天翊道:“你是不是染了寒毒?”

After everyone else was sent away, Mu Chen set up a silence boundary and looked at Yu Tianyi, “Are you inflicted with the cold poison?”

   御天翊无语,真是直接啊,一点客套话都没有。

Yu Tianyi was speechless, he was truly direct, not even doing some polite talk.

   穆辰见对方的表情也知道自己的猜测是对的,“我说药材,你去准备,寒毒自然可解。 ”

Mu Chen looked at the other’s expression and knew that his guess was correct, “I will tell you the ingredients and you can go prepare them. The cold poison can be cured.”

   御天翊点头,气氛沉寂,甚至有些冷。沉默了一会儿,御天翊才问:“我说联姻的事情,其实……”

Yue Tianyu nodded, the atmosphere was silent, it was almost even cold. After staying silent a while longer, Yu Tianyu finally asked, “About the connection by marriage I said before, actually…”

   穆辰很不客气的接话:“我知道,权宜之计,算不得真。”

Mu Chen very rudely continued it, “I know, it’s just a plan of convenience, nothing really sincere.”

   御天翊面色一顿,垂眸错开这个话题,语气有些失落,“你和季师弟有过节?”

Yu Tianyi’s face froze, his eyes drifted away and then he asked somewhat at loss, “You and Junior Brother Ji have a grudge?”

   “心狠手辣的伪君子,为了权势连亲爹都能卖。”穆辰拿起顾云玦用过的筷子,噗的戳进桌子里,心情十分不好。

“Vicious and merciless hypocrite that could even sell their own flesh father for power.” Mu Chen picked up the chopsticks Gu Yunjue used and stabbed it into the table, his mood very bad.

   气氛再次沉寂,俩人都不是多话的人,为了能让穆辰开口,御天翊已经在努力的找话题,然而每次都被穆辰一句话冷场,连话都不好接。

The atmosphere once again fell silent. Both of them weren’t people of many words, for Mu Chen to speak, Yu Tianyi had already worked really hard on trying to find a subject to talk about. However, every single one was cut short into awkward silence with one line from Mu Chen, the conversation just couldn’t continue.

   而已经被带去后山的顾云玦,脑海中出现的却不是这个尴尬的画面。脸上笑逐颜开,眼底的神色却越来越寒,对穆辰的占有欲已然超出了他自己的想象,仿佛着魔了一般,一想到穆辰和别人相谈甚欢,甚至把他隔绝在外,他就有种杀人的冲动。这种不受控制的感觉让他几欲克制不住自己的情绪,连眼底都染了一层血色。

And Gu Yunjue who was already taken to the back mountain, what appeared in his mind wasn’t this awkward scene. A smile bloomed on his face though his eyes turned colder and colder. His desire toward Mu Chen was already beyond his imagination, it was like obsession. Once he thought of how Mu Chen would show a happy side to others, he wanted to isolate him from the outside world, he even has the urge to kill people. This kind of uncontrollable feeling almost made him unable to restrain his thoughts, even his eyes gained a layer of blood red.

   我的好师尊,怎么这么不乖呢?

My good Master, why are you so not obedient?

   作者有话要说: 不负责任小剧场:

Author’s Comment: Doing a small show of not bearing responsibility.

   顾云玦:“都走开!我要黑化,我要疯魔,我要上天,我要把小师尊关小黑屋啪啪啪各种play来一发!!”

Gu Yunjue: “All of you go away! I want to darken, I want to turn into an insane devil, I want heaven, I want to shut little Master into a small dark house to papapa and do all sorts of plays!”

   穆辰伸手,拎起来,啪啪啪打屁股:“还教不好你个熊孩子?”

Mu Chen reached out, picked him up, then papapa spanked his bottom: “Think I can’t teach a brat?”

   黑喵:顾云玦吐血狗带!

Black Meow: Gu Yunjue coughs blood and Go Die.
