Chapter 22: Do You Want To Bathe Together?


Translated by Ellen

   穆辰听说外面很多人找他,疑惑的看着镜庭,什么人?

Hearing that many people were searching for him, Mu Chen looked at Jing Ting with suspicions, who was it?

   镜庭言简意赅的道:“送礼。”

Jing Ting concisely and comprehensively said, “Sending gifts.”

   “嗯?”

“Hm?”

   “收徒礼。”

“Disciple acceptance gift.”

   穆辰歪头,什么东西?

Mu Chen tilted his head, what is it?

   “就是恭喜您收了徒弟,送给您还有小宫主的贺礼。”一旁一个机灵的侍女替不爱说话的镜庭解释道,对这俩话少的人费劲的交流很是着急。

“It’s to congratulate you for accepting a disciple, giving you and the Little Master a congratulatory gift,” an astute maid on the side explained in place of Jing Ting who did not want to speak, feeling anxious on the struggling communication between the two.

   穆辰突然想起来,上一世好像没有这么回事,“既然送来了,就都给云儿吧。”

Mu Chen suddenly remembered that in his last life, it didn’t seem to have happened this way. “Since it was sent, let’s just give it all to Yun’er.”

   “哦。”镜庭应了一声,皱着眉去应付送礼的人。因为昨日他家宫主大展神威,这群见风使舵的马屁精就来送礼,这让镜庭十分厌恶。

“Oh,” Jing Ting agreed with a small sound, eyebrows creasing at the thought of dealing with the giftee. Because his family’s Palace Master showed off his glorious power yesterday, this group saw the wind and set the helm to send a gift to bootlick right away, leading Jing Ting to feel utterly disgusted.

TL note: 见风使舵  – saw the wind and set the helm – to be flexible and take advantage of the situation

   见镜庭这不耐烦的态度,穆辰这一刻突然觉得他这宫里特别缺一个能干的管家,镜庭不爱说话,除了送客的时候特别有气势,管理杂事的时候就特别不耐烦。而且再过几年,穆辰想让镜庭出去历练,他们总要回妖界,在安逸的地方长大,并不是对他真的好。

Seeing Jing Ting’s impatient attitude, Mu Chen suddenly felt that his palace notably lacked a capable housekeeper. Jing Ting didn’t like to speak, besides having a particular imposing manner whenever he saw visitors out, he was especially impatient when managing the various chores. Moreover, in a few years, Mu Chen wanted Jing Ting to go out to learn through experience. They will nevertheless return to the Demon Realm and growing up in a comfortable place was not really good for him.

   于是穆辰给镜明传讯,可以和顾云玦一起去外门挑一个细心的弟子回来,管理宫内的杂事。等到中午俩人回来的时候,就带回一个胡子花白的老头子,此人名叫管善,在外门也算个小管事。

So Mu Chen summoned Jing Ming so he and Gu Yunjue could go to the outer sect to pick out an attentive follower to bring back to manage the miscellaneous tasks inside the palace. When the two returned at noon, they brought back an old man with a grizzled beard. The old man’s name was Guan Shan and also took care of small tasks in the outer sect.

   穆辰头疼的捏捏脑门,他的错,他不该让两个智商都只有五岁的孩子去挑人。此人看起来慈眉善目,也就小孩子会喜欢。

Mu Chen kneaded his forehead with a headache coming up. It was his mistake. He shouldn’t have let two people with the IQs of a 5-year-old child to go pick out people. The person had kind brows and pleasant eyes, something young children will like.

   外门弟子,大都是三灵根以上的修士,经过试炼之后看表现被管事分两本基础的功法,命好的被分配费各峰各殿做道童,如果被提点几句,仙途可能还有转机。命不好的只能在外门做些杂事,大都活到二百多岁,不到筑基就走到了寿命的终点。

Most outer disciples are cultivators with at least three spiritual roots. After going through refinement, they were divided into two basic cultivation methods based on their performance. The lucky ones will bed assigned to each of the palaces as a dao child. If they were given a bit of guidance, their path of becoming an immortal can turn for the better. Those without a kind fate can only do miscellaneous tasks in the outer sect, and most live to over 200 years old. If they fail to reach the foundation establishment stage, they have reached the end of their lifespan.

   当然,外门弟子也可以参见门内大比,但是能出人头地进入内门的,凤毛麟角,除非走了运,遇到一个改变命运的机遇。

Of course, outer sect disciples can associate with those of the inner sect, but to be able to stand out among one’s peers and enter the inner sect is rare as Phoenix feathers and unicorn horns. Unless they suddenly have the great luck to come across an opportunity that will transform their destiny.

   眼前这位老者,头发已经花白,看相貌已到垂暮,让这样的人来炎阳宫,养老么?

The old man in front of him, his hair was already grayed out, and by telling fortune from his appearance, he’s already at the end. Allowing these kinds of people to come into Yanyang Palace, is it to support the elderly?

   看出穆辰的不喜,顾云玦笑眯眯的凑过去,直接坐在穆辰的腿上,拍着穆辰的胸口轻声哄他:“师尊,他看起来挺可靠的,被赶走太可怜了,留下他吧。”

Seeing Mu Chen’s disappointment, Gu Yunjue beamed at him. Sitting directly on Mu Chen’s lap and patting Mu Chen’s chest, he softly persuaded him, “Master, he seems to be quite reliable. He is rather pitiful being driven out, let’s keep him.”

   穆辰挑挑眉,难得看见小徒弟这么心善,上一世的顾云玦可是没用的东西都杀掉,十分的狠辣,果然是自己教的好?穆辰心里一喜,对顾云玦轻声哄他的乖顺态度哄的心情十分愉悦。

Mu Chen raised an eyebrow. He seldom sees his little disciple this virtuous. The Gu Yunjue from his previous life killed everything that was useless, extremely ruthless. His teachings have sure enough taught him well. Mu Chen was delighted. Gu Yunjue’s respectful persuasion made him utterly delighted.

   “既然你喜欢,就留下吧。”

“Since you seem to be fond of the old man, he can stay then.”

   “多谢师尊。”

“Many thanks, Master.”

   听到能被留下,管善这才松了口气,笑容满面的对着穆辰拜了拜,“多谢宫主。”

Hearing that he was able to stay, Guan Shan relaxed his tone. He smiled from ear to ear towards Mu Chen and said his thanks, “Many thanks, Palace Master.”

   穆辰摆摆手,让镜庭带他下去,能不能用还要考察一下。

Mu Chen waved his hand and had Jing Ting withdraw with him. Whether he can be employed or not stills needs to be inspected.

   顾云玦搂住穆辰的脖子,靠在穆辰的怀中闻着他身上清幽的味道,嘴角渐渐挑起一个满足的微笑,师尊这么听他的话,真是乖巧。以后管善在这里,即使他有事不在,也有人能守护炎阳宫,守护师尊,有对方在,他做事也方便些。

Gu Yunjue wrapped his arms around Mu Chen’s neck, leaning against Mu Chen’s chest and smelling the faint scent of his body. The corners of his mouth rose to show a content smile. It’s adorable that Master listens to his words so much. From now on, since Guan Shan will be here, there will be someone to protect Yanyang Palace and Master even if he is out and his own work will be made a bit easier.

   管善的能力毋容置疑,不一会儿就把刚送来的礼品整理出一个清单,穆辰拿过来一看,东西虽不算名贵,但也不俗,显然是都用了心的。寒阳宫竟然也凑了热闹,送了顾云玦一只烤鸡。显然这不是柳寒之的主意,把吃的当礼物往外送的,只能是嗜吃如命的褚千双。

There was no doubt in Guan Shan’s ability. In no time, he organized the delivered gifts into an inventory. Mu Chen looked over the list. Although the presents aren’t anything famous or expensive, they were also rather impressive, clearly showing the gifters took it seriously. Unexpectedly, Hanyang Palace even bustled and sent Gu Yunjue a roast chicken. It couldn’t have been Liu Hanzhi’s idea to send out food as a gift. It could only have been Chu Qianshuang who loved eating as much as life.

   “这些东西里,也许就这只烤鸡是没有利欲之心。”穆辰点了点那个清单,嘴角微微勾起,“这些东西都是送你的,你看着处理吧。”

“Out of these things, perhaps it’s only this roast chicken that doesn’t have greedy intentions,” Mu Chen pointed out on the list as the corners of his mouth faintly lifted, “All of these things are for you. You can deal with them.”

   “都送我?”顾云玦失笑,他师尊真不是一般的大方,看都不看就全给了他,这份疼爱,他要拿什么去换?

“All for me?” Gu Yunjue laughed. His master really wasn’t an ordinary generosity. Whether Master looked at it or not, he gives everything to him. For this kind of dear love, what could he exchange it with?

   镜明已经抱起一个食盒,正想拆开看看,突然从上面察觉到一丝不对,他耸耸鼻子闻了闻,下意识的看穆辰。

Jing Ming was already holding a box of food, wanting to open and take a look at it only to notice something was wrong from above suddenly. He raised his nose and sniffed around, subconsciously watching Mu Chen.

   穆辰看他,怎么了?

Mu Chen looked over at him, what was wrong?

   镜明震惊的道:“有……有妖气。”

Jing Ming, shocked, said, “There … there’s demon qi.”

   镜明本就不是人类,他是上古神兽,啸月天狼的后代。因为一些意外才从妖界来到仙界,又不想被人签订契约变成灵宠,才变作人身隐藏在穆辰这里。穆辰待他们犹如弟子,镜明也习惯了安逸,可即使再安逸,他也是个妖修,对妖气感觉十分的敏锐。

Jing Ming was not originally human but an ancient spirit beast, the descendant of the Howling Moon Heaven Wolf. Because of some unexpected events that made him move from the demon realm to the immortal realm and not wanting to enter a contract to become a spirit pet, he transformed into a human form to hide at Mu Chen’s place. Mu Chen treated them like disciples. Jing Ming got accustomed to the ease, but even if he’s at ease, he is still a demon cultivator that can perceive demon qi exceptionally sharply.

   褚千双送来的东西上有妖气,说明了什么?

What did the fact that gift from Chu Qianshuang had demon qi mean?

   “不好了宫主,小六被妖怪抓走了!”镜明惊恐状。

“It’s not good, Palace Master. A demon kidnaped Xiao Liu!” Jing Ming exclaimed alarmingly.

   穆辰无奈的瞪了他一眼,你自己就是妖怪,还怕什么妖怪?想到镜庭和镜明隐藏妖气的丹药也所剩不多,穆辰再次进了炼丹房,两天后炼出十几瓶丹药,分了三份,给了镜庭两份,吩咐他:“去给小六送一份,让他这两天不要外跑。”

Mu Chen helplessly glanced at him. You’re a demon yourself, why are scared of demons? Recalling the medicinal pills Jing Ting and Jing Ming was using to conceal their demon qi was also diminishing, Mu Chen entered the alchemy room again. In two days, he smelted over ten bottles of medicinal pills. He then divided them into three shares and gave Jing Ting two of them alongside an order: “Go give Xiao Liu a share and have him not run outside these two days.”

   “褚千双也是……”

“Chu Qianshuang is also …”

   “嘘!”一根纤长的食指,轻轻点在镜庭的唇上,成功让镜庭把后面的话咽了下去,看着镜庭少有的露出震惊的神情,穆辰嘴角微微勾了勾,温和道:“去吧,这下不用担心身份暴露了。”因为是同类,三个年纪差不多的孩子应该会有共同语言,可以好好交朋友了。

“Shh!” A long, fine forefinger gently pressed against Jing Ting’s lips, successfully preventing Jing Ting from speaking any fruther. Looking at Jing Ting’s rarely exposed expression of shock, Mu Chen gave a slight smile and gently said: “Go, but this time, don’t worry about having your identity exposed.” Because they were all similar, three children of similar ages should share a common language and can become friends.

   嘴上温热的触感,让镜庭一下子红了脸,接过穆辰手里的丹药,扭头就窜了出去,动作快的就像他的剑法,已然看不见身影。

The warm sensation on his mouth caused Jing Ting to blush. He took the medicinal pills from Mu Chen’s hands and turned his head as he scurried out. His movements were as fast as his swordsmanship, his silhouette already gone.

   穆辰蹙眉,不知道这孩子慌张什么。

Mu Chen frowned, not knowing what this child was flustered about.

   无奈牵着脖子上拴了一条红绸的黑蛋,已经被逼着遛了一天鸟的顾云玦刚回来,就从窗外看着这一幕,小师尊终于从炼丹房里出来了,小师尊白净的手指摸了别人的嘴……顾云玦面色深沉的走进来,一眼不发的拉住穆辰的手指,掏出帕子使劲的擦。

Black Egg who was helplessly tied with red silk and Gu Yunjue who was forced to walk the bird for the whole day finally came back. He saw his Little Master has finally come out of the alchemy room from his window. His Little Master’s white finger touched another’s mouth… Gu Yunjue’s complexion darkened as he entered and did not say a word as he grabbed Mu Chen’s finger and fished out a handkerchief to clean it with all his might.

   “云儿?”

“Yun’er?”

   “师尊,您刚才的动作很像调戏良家少年,以后千万不要这么做,会被人误会。”顾云玦目光灼灼的看着穆辰的眼睛,见他眼神清透,并没有对镜庭有什么想法,这才缓和了脸色,语调温柔的哄道:“您看,镜庭已经被您吓跑了,我保证,他回来看您的眼神肯定躲闪。”

“Master, your actions just now was awfully like taking liberties with an innocent child. You must not do this later by any means; others will misunderstand your actions.” Gu Yunjue heated gaze penetrated into Mu Chen’s eyes to see the other’s emotions and found that Mu Chen didn’t have any intentions towards Jing Ting. The fact quickly eased his face and he softly whispered, “Look, Jing Ting has already been scared away from you. I guarantee that he will surely dodge your eyes when he comes back.”

   穆辰愣了一下,歉意的看着镜庭离开的方向,是他不对,他忘了镜庭这孩子已经是大孩子心境了,以后真的该保持一些距离。不过调戏良家少年什么的,眼前的小徒弟怎么连这个都知道?联想到顾云玦来时那一身的伤,穆辰脑海中闪过无数不好的画面,心疼的摸摸顾云玦的头,穆辰觉得这不受宠的孩子肯定见过不少肮脏的东西,越是大家族,这种见不得光的事情越多。

Mu Chen froze for a moment, feeling regret as he turned towards the direction Jing Ting left in. It was his wrong. He forgot that Jing Ting was practically an adolescent mentally so distance really should be maintained from now on. But taking liberties with an innocent child and the whatnot, why did his little disciple know what that is? Thinking of the future Gu Yunjue whose body was filled with scars, Mu Chen’s mind flashed through numerous horrible scenes. Stroking Gu Yunjue’s head with feelings of remorse, Mu Chen felt this pampered child must have seen many filthy things. The more powerful the family, the more things that can’t see the light of day.

   再次把顾云玦抱起来,穆辰掂了掂,感觉重了不少,欣慰的拍拍他的背,保证道:“以后不会了。”

Holding Gu Yunjue up in his arms again, Mu Chen weighed his hand, feeling that he gain a rather nice amount of weight. Patting Yunjue’s back with gratitude and promising, “It won’t happen in the future.”

   顾云玦笑道:“师尊,您要抱我到几岁?”

Gu Yunjue laughed, “Master, you want to hold me until I’m how old?”

   “趁你还小,再长一岁就不能抱了。”

“I’m taking advantage of how you’re still small. I won’t be able to hold you a year later.”

   顾云玦抓住穆辰的一缕头发,缱绻的缠绕在自己的手指上,拉到唇边,轻轻的嗅了嗅,笑道:“那我可以牵着师尊的手,牵到多大都没关系。”

Gu Yunjue grabbed a lock of Mu Chen’s hair and lovingly twisted it around his finger, pulling it to his lips and sniffing it softly. Smiling, he said, “Then I can hold Master’s hand, and it won’t matter how old I become.”

   穆辰把这话当成了小孩子的玩笑话,没有当真的勾了勾嘴角,温和的说好。心想再过几年,即使自己想牵,小徒弟也不让了,长大之后总会有很多的想法。

Mu Chen took his words as a child’s joke, lightheartedly smiling and gently agreeing. Thinking to himself that in a few years, even if Mu Chen wanted to hold his hand, his little disciple won’t allow it. People have many of their own thoughts after they grow up.

   因为炼丹花费了两天两夜的时间,穆辰觉得身上哪里都不舒服,索性扔了顾云玦手里的黑蛋,直接抱着顾云玦来到后山。

Since concocting the pills took two days, Mu Chen’s entire body felt uncomfortable. He threw Black Egg from Gu Yunjue’s arm and directly took Gu Yunjue to the back mountain.

   这里有一处灵泉,是他专门洗澡的地方。

There had a spirit spring which was his personal bathing location.

   四周远山如黛,近处花草环绕,水汽朦胧之中,一处灵泉活水缓缓流动,薄雾袅袅,让周围的一切都朦胧起来。现在正是傍晚时分,晚霞照进来,雾中有一层淡淡的粉,因为一直有结界保护,这里从没来过外人,落花伴着水流,缱绻而行,安逸的让人心魂都放松下来。

All around were distant mountains, nearby flora, and a hazy mist. The flowing water in the spirit spring was slowly circulating, raising the fog in spirals to veil the environment. It was now evening, and the sunset illuminated the place revealing a faint layer of powder amongst the mist. Since there was always a protection boundary set down, outsiders have never entered. Fallen blossoms floated in the stream, loving and inseparable yet fleeting, relaxing the hearts and minds of people comfortably.

穆辰把顾云玦放在地上,问他:“要不要一起洗?”

Mu Chen placed Gu Yunjue back on the ground and asked, “Do you want to bathe together?”

   顾云玦一来就知道穆辰要做什么,听了这话耳尖少有的微红,“师尊,我,徒儿还是回避一下……”

Gu Yunjue understood what Mu Chen wanted to do right away and slightly blushed at the sound of those words, “Master… I… Your disciple should withdraw…”

   穆辰揪住小孩儿的袖子,少有的起了逗弄他的意思,“害羞?”

Mu Chen grabbed the child’s sleeve, letting out a rare tease on other’s request, “Shy?”

   “师尊,您真的是……”顾云玦眯起眼睛,笑的一脸纯真,“既然您这么要求,那徒儿就不客气了。”

“Master, you’re really…” Gu Yunjue narrowed his eyes and smiled innocently, “Since you want this so much, then disciple won’t be rude.”

   不知道是不是自己听错了,穆辰总觉得这小东西说不客气的时候咬字有些重。

Not knowing whether he misheard it, Mu Chen has always felt that the moments when he says that he won’t be rude are quite serious.
