Chapter 27: Go Out And Kneel


穆辰吃了三颗丹药,才艰难的压下这份火毒的灼热, 他知道,已经不能再拖了,他需要马上闭关。

Mu Chen ate three medicinal pills and suppressed the fire poison’s burning heat with difficulty. He knew that he couldn’t put it off any other. He had to enter seclusion right away.

可是,徒儿要怎么办?他最起码要闭关一年以上,这一年之内谁能保证顾云玦不被别人带坏?因为这十年里只要他一眼看不住顾云玦就会跟别人去惹祸的惯性,已经让穆辰有了心理阴影。他实在是不放心。

But what about his disciple. At the very least, he needed to be in seclusion for a year. In that year, who would make sure that Gu Yunjue won’t be led astray by others. For the last ten years, as soon as Mu Chen stopped watching, Gu Yunjue would habitually follow others and stir up trouble, already giving Mu Chen a psychological shadow. He didn’t feel reassured at all.

顾云玦这边, 被郑玄素一句话戳中了逆鳞,瞬间就起了杀意。穆辰身体有恙, 连镜明他们都不知道, 这个郑玄素, 知道的难免太多了些。“师伯对我师尊,还真是关心呐, 却不知道这种无稽之谈, 你是在哪里听来的?”顾云玦周身温润的气质没有一丝变化, 俊美无俦的脸上一双墨色的眸子却深不见底,看郑玄素的眼神不起一丝波澜,口气虽然温和,说话却不客气,这让郑玄素莫名的心魂一颤,一股恶寒没有来的蹿上心头,无端端的让他生出一头冷汗,有种想要跪倒拜服的冲动。忍下这巨大的压力,他咬着牙匆匆回了句:“没,就是看他脸色不好,有些担忧罢了。”

Over with Gu Yunjue, the disciple was stabbed by Zheng Xuansu’s words and instantly let out a killing aura. Mu Chen’s body was indeed sick but even Jing Ming and the others weren’t aware of this. This Zheng Xuansu seemed to know too much. “Martial uncle truly is concerned about my master but wasn’t sure of this utter nonsense. Where did you hear of it?” Gu Yunjue’s entire gentle temperament didn’t change one bit. His deep ink-colored eyes on his handsome face only glimpsing at Zhen Xuansu. Although his tone was gentle, his words were rather rude. This made Zheng Xuansu indescribably shiver inside before. There wasn’t a fierce cold leaping towards his soul but he broke out into a cold sweat and felt the urge to sink to his knees to pay his respects. Bearing the intense pressure, he bit his tooth and hurriedly answered, “Nowhere. I just saw that his complexion wasn’t that good so I was somewhat concerned. That’s all.

顾云玦淡笑点头,意味深长的道:“多谢师伯对师尊的关系,今日之事,我会一字不漏的告诉师尊。”

Gu Yunjue let out a weak laugh, nodded, and profoundly said, “Many thanks for martial uncle’s concerns towards master. This matter today, I’ll inform my master word for word.”

郑玄素干笑一声,没再接话。顾云玦见他看自己的眼神有些闪躲,眼里闪过一丝沉思,这人有问题。

Zheng Xuansu gave a hollow laugh and didn’t answer. Gu Yunjue saw that the other’s eyes were somewhat evading him. Within his own eyes flashed a thought that this person was a problem.

————

穆辰下了床,刚出房门,就见顾云玦急匆匆的飞回来,速度不听,直接冲他扑过来,穆辰下意识的伸出手,任对方抱住自己的腰,扑了个满怀。有些无奈的摸摸徒弟的头,穆辰冷下脸严肃的道:“都快赶上师尊高了,还是这么爱撒娇,以后要收敛一点。”

Mu Chen got out of bed and just went through the door when he saw Gu Yunjue hurriedly flying back at an unstoppable speed and coming over to him. Mu Chen unconsciously extended his arms and allowed the other to hug his waist to his heart’s content. As he helplessly stroked his disciple’s head, Mu Chen put on a serious expression and said, “You’re almost as tall as master but still enjoy acting like a spoiled. You need to exercise a bit of restraint.”

顾云玦抓着穆辰的手,一边查探他体内的灵力波动,不动声色的掩下微微一暗的眸光,却还是笑着说:“徒儿记下了。”

Gu Yunjue grabbed Mu Chen’s hands and investigated the other’s internal spirit strength fluctuations. Without a word, he covered up the faint gloom in his eyes but still smiled as he said, “Disciple will remember to do so.”

穆辰无力,这话已经说了无数遍,都没有改。

Mu Chen was powerless. He has already said these words countless times but his disciple didn’t change one bit.

“大殿之上有没有人找你麻烦?”穆辰坐下来,自然的伸出手。

“Did anyone try look for trouble with you up at the main hall?” Mu Chen sat down and naturally extended his hand.

顾云玦握着这只皎白若玉的手,掏出帕子,把他纤长的手指一根一根温柔的擦拭干净,眼底突然冒出几分玩味,他欲言又止的道:“找麻烦的倒是没有,毕竟几位师兄都在,不过有一个人……想要介绍他的女儿给我认识。”

Gu Yunjue grasped the pale jade-like hand and fished out a handkerchief to gently clean each of the long delicate fingers, his eyes unexpectedly holding enjoyment in them. He hesitatingly said, “There wasn’t anyone that tried to look for trouble. After all, several senior brothers were there too. But there was was someone… that wanted to introduce his daughter for me to meet.”

穆辰面色一冷,“谁?”哪个不长眼的东西,他徒儿这么小竟然就敢给他介绍姑娘认识,简直是找死!

Mu Chen’s expression became icy. “Who?” That person simply had no eyes. His disciple was still so young but he unexpectedly dared to try and introduce his daughter to him, simply courting death!

顾云玦面色不改的道:“就是那位姓郑的师伯。”

Without changing his expression, Gu Yunjue said, “It was that martial uncle Zheng.”

“哼,”穆辰冷哼一声,眼里一片寒凉,“不过是你师祖领回来打杂的外门弟子罢了,算什么师伯?”上次在岳明泽耳旁吹风的就是他,这让穆辰很是不满,自己的事情,哪用得着对方操心?最烦这种装的一副正人君子的模样,表现的处处为别人着想,实际上还不知道存了什么龌龊心思的小人。

“Humph!” snorted Mu Chen with cold eyes. “It’s only the outer sect disciple your grandmaster brought back for odd jobs, that’s all. Just how is he a martial uncle?” The man who was beside Yue Mingze whispering into his ear seemed to be him. This made Mu Chen rather discontent. For his own affairs, why is there any need for others to get involved? He was most annoyed by people who acted like upright gentleman. They would always act like their considering other people’s needs when in reality, they were vile people with despicable thoughts.

想罢穆辰瞪了顾云玦一眼,警告道:“红颜白骨、粉黛骷髅,小小年纪不要想那乱七八糟的东西。”

Mu Chen stopped and stared at Gu Yunjue, warning, “As time passes, beauty will also pass and turn into bones so there’s no reason to cling onto female charms. Young children shouldn’t think of such messy things.”

顾云玦微笑着听完,给穆辰擦完手指,端起茶杯摸了摸,感觉温度合适,这才递给他,轻声哄道:“师尊说的对,徒儿都记下了,您身体怎么样,有没有哪里不适?”

Gu Yunjue smiled and listened right to the end. When he finished cleaning Mu Chen’s fingers, he picked up a teacup and felt it. Feeling that its temperature was still appropriate, he then handed it to the other and softly coaxed, “What master said is right. This disciple will remember it. How about your health? Are you unwell anywhere?”

穆辰喝了口茶,脾气顺了点,漫不经心的答道:“没事,不能压制就硬抗,反正死不了。”重生前他扛过五次,才找到解决的办法,总归死不了,不好受是真的。

Mu Chen drank a sip of tea, his temper calming down before he indifferently said, “It’s nothing. If I can’t suppress it, I can only firmly fight it. In any case, I won’t die.” In his previous life, he suffered through 5 events before he found out how to resolve it. Even though he wouldn’t die, it really was hard to take.

顾云玦听后蹙起眉头,不满的看他:“师尊!”

When Gu Yunjue heard this, he furrowed his brows and stared at him with discontent. “Master!”

穆辰顿了下,无奈改口,“为师想要闭关一阵子,你好好等我,不要乱跑。”不想让顾云玦再问,穆辰转变话题,“我让你穿的丹药,穿完了吗?”

Mu Chen paused for a moment and, with no other choice, changed his tune. “Since Master wants to enter seclusion for a while, you should nicely wait for me and not run around all over the place.” Not wanting to allow Gu Yunjue to continue asking, Mu Chen changed the subject. “I had you thread some pills, have you finished them?”

顾云玦:“……没。”

Gu Yunjue: “…No.”

“笨!现在去做,晚上检查你的功课!”穆辰嫌弃的瞪了顾云玦一眼,小徒弟对炼丹的天分真的很一般,一套杀气凛然的剑法,他看一遍就能学会,用起来劈天裂地威力无穷,让他用灵力把丹药的成分分类他偏偏做不到,到如今只会炼制初级丹药,简直比猪还笨!

“Stupid! Go off and do it right now! I will inspect your work tonight.” Mu Chen glanced over at Gu Yunjue. His small disciple’s aptitude for concocting pills really was rather ordinary. For a set of majestic murderous sword skills, his disciple could look at them once, learn them instantly, and then use them to split open the heavens with a boundless power. However, for him to use spirit strength to classify the ingredients for medicinal pills was impossible. At this point, he could only refine primary medicinal pills, practically dumber than a pig.

顾云玦一想到穆辰让他做的那个,就有些头疼,两辈子加起来,也就小师尊能一口一个笨蛋、蠢货、白痴、呆子、这样的词语骂他。当然,以穆辰的词汇量,能骂这么多绝对能显示出他现在的心情,嫌弃到了极致。

Whenever Gu Yunjue thinks about the task Mu Chen had him do, he immediately gets a headache. For both his lifetimes added together, there was only his little master who would call him names like fool, moron, idiot, and dummy whenever he got mad. Of course, with Mu Chen’s vocabulary set, for him to use such words to scold showed his current mood, his dislike has finally reached its peak.

很多丹药破损之后药力会有损失,穆辰的要求便是让他把一瓶子丹药串成一串,用灵力把丹药包裹住,保证药力不损。一个大男人,拿针穿药丸子,顾云玦觉得这个动作十分像女仆,实在是做不下去。

After several medicinal pills became damaged and lost some of its potency. Mu Chen’s request was simply to have him finish stringing a bottle of pills by using his spirit power to wrap around the pills to prevent the medicinal power from dropping. As a large man using a needle to pierce medicinal pills, Gu Yunjue felt that this sort of action was completely that of a female servant and that he really couldn’t continue doing it.

当然,如果换小师尊做,肯定像个贤妻。

Naturally, if it was his little master doing it, he would definitely think that he would look like a perfect wife.

穆辰伸手,在已经走神的徒儿脑门上敲了一记,“为师说话你有没有听到?”

Mu Chen reached out his hand and topped his spacing out disciple. “Did you hear what Master just said?”

“听到了!”顾云玦抓住穆辰的手,笑眯眯的提议,“师尊教徒儿一遍可好?”

“I heard!” Gu Yunjue grabbed Mu Chen’s hand and happily proposed, “Won’t it be good if master would teach disciple all the way through?”

穆辰把茶喝完,嫌弃的看了顾云玦一会儿,笨啊,怎么这么笨!上辈子都比这时候聪明,难道他这辈子养的太好,把孩子养废了?天分这种东西可以越养越差吗?

Mu Chen finished drinking his tea and coldly looked over Gu Yunue. How stupid, how could he be so stupid! The boy from his last life was much smarter than that of this lifetime. Could it be that he raised the boy too well in this life that he raised the child into a waste? Can things like great talents be raised to become even worse?

顾云玦淡笑的看着他,一个眼神都舍不得错开,小师尊这双总是淡漠疏离的眸子,只有对上他在意的人才能有那么多情绪,师尊看他的眼神和别人是不一样的,这双眼睛,在此刻是最漂亮的。

Gu Yunjue shyly looked over at him, not missing even a single expression. His little master’s eyes were always indifferent and alienating and would only show so much expression when dealing with those close to him. The look that his master had when looking at him compared to with that at others was different. His eyes right at this moment were most beautiful.

穆辰见徒弟学不会还傻乎乎的看着他傻乐,更加嫌弃的一巴掌拍在顾云玦的后脑勺上,“看着点!”

Mu Chen saw that his disciple didn’t learn how to do it but still dim-wittedly looked and foolishly laughed at him. His dislike grew even more so he swatted against the back of his Gu Yunjue’s head. “Look at this!”

说着他摆在桌上十颗筑基丹,拿了根签子嗖嗖嗖下手如飞,再次成功戳成丹药串。穿完了他看顾云玦,学会了吗?

As he spoke, he arranged 10 foundation establishment pills on the desk and used a slender bamboo stick as if it was flying and finished pricking the pills and stringing them. When he finished, he looked over at Gu Yunjue, did he learn how to do it?

顾云玦挑挑眉,“师尊,不是用绣花针吗?”

Gu Yunjue just raised his eyebrow. “Master, aren’t you supposed to use embroidery needles?”

穆辰淡淡的道:“太娘气。”

Mu Chen indifferently responded, “Those are too feminine.”

“那徒儿……”

“Then disciple……“

“小孩子不要计较那么多!”穆辰翻脸。

“Children shouldn’t whine so much!” Mu Chen harshly said.

顾云玦无奈笑了笑,小师尊嘴笨,说不过别人的时候就翻脸,真是可爱的让人迷醉。

Gu Yunjue helplessly laughed. His little master was so silly, getting mad whenever he can’t get the upper hand in speech. It really was so adorable and bewitching for people.

当天下午,顾云玦绷着脸,拿着根绣花针坐在窗边一颗一颗穿丹药,穆辰托着下巴慵懒的坐在一旁,勾的他心思都不能放在丹药上,好在他现在已经不是肉体凡胎,要不然手指头都要被针戳成筛子。

In the afternoon, Gu Yunjue had on a displeased expression as he sat with an embroidering needle at his bedside piercing pill after pill. Mu Chen had propped up his chin in his palm and was sitting lazily on the side, making Gu Yunjue unable to focus on the medicinal pills. Fortunately, he no longer had an ordinary body, or else his fingers would have been poked into a sieve by the needle.

穆辰喝了两杯茶,终于嫌弃的看不下去了,打算回去继续打坐,蠢死了,怎么能这么蠢!

Mu Chen finished two cups of tea before he decided that he couldn’t continue watching and planned to return to continue meditating. He was so stupid, how could he be so stupid!

顾云玦看着穆辰的背影,嘴角勾起来,把灵力分出一丝,用强大的精神力控制,把每一颗丹药上都刻上清行两个字。穆辰,字清行,他本人的确没有埋没这两个,清行外彰,表里雪霜。因为这牵扯了一些俗世,穆辰又来历成迷,所以这字很少有人知道。顾云玦对这名字很是喜欢,特别是默念的时候,很像情人之间缱绻的呢喃,让人上瘾。

Gu Yunjue watched Mu Chen’s figure from the back, the corners of his mouth rising. He separated out a thread of his spirit strength and, with a strong control over his spirit power, the two words “Qing Xing.” Mu Chen’s courtesy name was Qing Xing and the man didn’t hide these two words away but Qing Xing was conspicuous outsides and seemed to be like snow. Because the characters seemed to be a bit vulgar and Mu Chen had a confusing history, very few people know of his courtesy name. Gu Yunjue was really fond of this name, especially when he’s saying it to himself. He really wanted to whisper it to the other as if they were loving and inseparable sweethearts and was addicted to the thought of it.

食指轻轻一弹,绣花针随着那股灵力飞速的把十几颗丹药串联起来,药力丝毫不散。顾云玦挥手把其收了起来,眼里透着几分玩味,小师尊那里,装的弱一点才能让他更加牵肠挂肚。

Gu Yunjue lightly flicked his index finger and the embroidery needle flew along the strand of spirit power and stringed together over ten medicinal pills, their medicinal power not scattering even the slightest degree. Gu Yunjue then waved his hand and took the spirit power back in. Ruminating with his eyes, he thought that with master there, only with acting a bit weak would his master even become more worried about him.

就在这时,一股灼热的温度突然从室内传来,顾云玦本来轻松的脸色蓦然一变,身形化作一道残影,人已经到了室内。

Right at this moment, a scorching heat suddenly came from inside and Gu Yunjue’s relaxed expression changed, his figure already a residual image as he entered the room.

穆辰本就肤色偏白,现在身体经受火毒的折磨,更是显得毫无血色,突然而来的巨大痛楚让他的汗水瞬间浸湿了额前的发丝,连里衣都紧紧贴在身上,整个人狼狈不堪。灵魂在被烈焰灼烧,这种疼痛感他已经经历了无数次,上一世甚至为这而死,再经历一次,还是痛的无法克制。单薄的身体浑身僵直着,偶尔一两下轻颤,也被他下意识的克制住,紧咬着牙关更是不让一丝痛楚的呻吟流出,仿佛风中劲竹,宁愿被折断,也绝不低头。

Mu Chen’s skin was pale. As the man endured the fire poison’s torment, color completely faded from his skin. A sudden pain came over him and his hairline became completely soaked in sweat, even his clothes where sticking on his body, his entire self all battered and exhausted. He felt as if his soul was being burned by raging flames. He has already underwent this sort of pain countless times and he even died in his last life from this. After experience this again, he was still in so much pain that he couldn’t control it. His frail body was stiff all over and would occasionally let out a tremble but they were subconsciously restrained. Mu Chen tightly bit down on his lips to prevent any moans of pain from coming out. Like a sturdy stalk of bamboo in the middle of a strong wind, he would rather break than give in.

越是这样,越让人怜惜。

The more this man was like this, the more others would feel pity for him.

顾云玦冲上去,从身后抱住穆辰,不经他的同意就把神魂探入穆辰灵台处,就见穆辰灵台深处,一个长相和他本人一模一样的白色小人被一圈黑色的火焰围在中间,两股力量正在互相僵持,来不及多想,顾云玦用自己的神魂包裹住穆辰的神魂,紧紧把穆辰护在身下。

Gu Yunjue rushed up and hugged Mu Chen from behind. Without asking for permission, he let out his spirit soul to enter Mu Chen’s spirit terrace. When he looked into Mu Chen’s spirit terrance, he saw a small person in white that looked exactly like Mu Chen that was trapped within rings of black flames. The two forces were at stalemate with each other. With no time to think, Gu Yunjue used his spirit soul to wrap around Mu Chen’s spirit soul, closely protected Mu Chen under him.

刚接触到那股火焰神魂就颤抖了一下,疼!神魂被放在火上炙烤,疼的让人无法言说。相比较神魂的疼痛,他的心口更疼!

Once he touched that flame’s he shuddered. It hurts! The spirit force under the fire was being roasted, hurting to the point that people can’t speak. Thinking about how the spirit force of the other must have hurted compared to this, he felt even more pain in his heart!

时间倒转之前,小师尊是怎样熬过一次又一次的折磨,直到最后都死在这簇黑色的火焰灼烧之下!为了变强,为了做一个不被人欺负的丹修,明知这异火能让他赔上性命,这人还是义无反顾,这个清冷的人,到底有多好强?

In his last life, just how did master endure these torments over and over again before dying under the black blaze! In order to become stronger, in order to become an alchemist that others won’t bully, he must have been fully aware that this fire could cost his life. This pure and cold person, just how determined is he?

神魂这种敏感又脆弱的存在被人抱住,穆辰瞬间就知道是谁,因为除了被自己养大的小徒弟,他不会对别人如此的不设防。

Feeling his sensitive and fragile spirit soul being embraced by someone, Mu Chen instantly knew who it was. After all, aside from the little disciple that he raised himself, he wouldn’t be so defenseless towards others.

感觉到神魂一阵清凉,穆辰睁开眼,抬手就拍了顾云玦一巴掌,恨不能一掌打死他,“你不要命了,出去!”他好不容易把他养这么大,这混蛋竟然连命都不要了,就他那点修为,一不小心就会魂消魄散,他这么多年岂不是白养了!没想到,压制时间越久,发作起来势头越猛,他本以为还能压制三天,没想到会这么突然,穆辰后悔,自己这个脆弱的模样,本不应该被徒儿看见的,这个孝顺的孩子,一定会吓坏的。

Sensing a spell of coolness in his spirit soul, Mu Chen opened his eyes. He raised his hand and slapped Gu Yunjue with the palm of his hand, itching to kill the other. “Do you not want to live! Get out!” He has raised his disciple this big with great difficulties but this scoundrel actually doesn’t want his life anymore. He repaired the damage on the other right away. If he wasn’t careful then his disciple’s soul would disappear and scatter and he would have raised his disciple for nothing! He didn’t expect that the longer the poison was suppressed, the more ferocious the flare up would be. He originally believed that he could suppress it for three days but didn’t expect something like this. Mu Chen felt regret. This sort of frail appearance isn’t something to be shown to his disciple. This filial child would surely be really frightened.

“别动!”顾云玦强势的捏住穆辰的双手,把他紧紧抱在怀里,动弹不得,神魂继续包裹住穆辰的神识,帮他抵抗那股火焰。

“Don’t move!” Gu Yunjue intensively kneaded Mu Chen’s hands and held him tightly in his embrace, unable to move a single step. His spirit soul continued to wrap around Mu Chen’s spirit soul, helping the other resist the strong flames.

穆辰气急,却又不能再跟这个不懂事的混蛋徒弟计较,知道顾云玦承受不住,所有的灵力全部用在抵抗火毒上,两人功法相同,再加上顾云玦的神魂高于穆辰,竟然很快便占了上风。

Mu Chen was anxious but he couldn’t continue arguing with his intelligent scoundrel of a disciple. He knew that Gu Yunjue couldn’t continue supporting him so he used all of his spirit force to resist the fire poison. Since the two cultivated with the same method and that Gu Yunjue’s spirit soul was stronger than Mu Chen’s, the two actually quickly gained the upper hand.

期间镜庭和镜明回来,发现穆辰设下的结界,以为穆辰在打坐,都没有去打扰,师徒俩就这么坐了三天三夜,直到黑色的火焰被震压下去,重新封印,顾云玦才睁开眼睛。

When Jing Ting and Jing Ming returned and found the boundary Mu Chen set up, they thought that Mu Chen was meditating so they didn’t come over to bother him. And so, the master and disciple sat there for 3 days and nights. It was only when the black flames were restrained and sealed again did Gu Yunjue open his eyes.

“师尊?师尊?”他轻声叫了几次,因为太过疲惫,快要陷入昏睡的穆辰这才睁开眼睛,苍白的脸上还是毫无血色,眼神却带着薄怒,“孽徒!”

“Master? Master?” He softed called out several times. Since he was too exhausted, the almost asleep Mu Chen only opened his eyes. His face still lacked any natural coloring but his eyes revealed a cold anger. “You evil disciple!”

顾云玦叫他还能教训自己,顿时松了口气,抱着穆辰安慰道:“好了,都过去了。”

Gu Yunjue told himself that he could still lecture himself so he relaxed his tone and hugged Mu Chen, comforting the other, “It’s okay now, it’s all over.”

“放手!”竟然把他当小孩子哄!竟然敢不听他的话!竟然把身上的汗蹭在他的身上!这是想欺师灭祖?如果还有力气,穆辰想把这不听话的混蛋徒弟拎起来揍一顿屁股!

“Let go!” To actually dare to coax him like a he’s a child! Actually daring to not listen to his words! To wipe off the sweat on his body with the other’s body! Isn’t this taking advantage of your ancient martial ancestor? If he still had the strength, Mu Chen would lift up this disobedient scoundrel of a disciple and spank his bottom!

顾云玦挑挑眉,心说小师尊还挺会过河拆桥,把怀里的人放开,感受着怀里的残留的温度和触感,有些遗憾的捏了捏手指,提议道:“要不要徒儿帮您洗漱一下?”

Gu Yunjue raised an eyebrow. It seems like master is able to destroy the bridge after crossing the river. Releasing the man in his embrace, he felt that the warmth from the embrace was still there and regretfully kneaded his fingers. Gu Yunjue then suggested “Do you want this disciple to help you wash up?”

TL note: 过河拆桥 – lit. to destroy the bridge after crossing the river – fig. to abandon one’s benefactor upon achieving one’s goal

穆辰冷哼一声,倒是没有反驳,他不想让别人看到他狼狈的样子,也不想让别人为他洗漱,相对而说,还是选择自己养大的小崽子。

Mu Chen coldly snorted but he had no rebuttal. He didn’t want anyone to see his sorry figure nor have anyone wash him. Relatively speaking, it was better to pick the small child that he raised.

顾云玦立马让人备水,回头给穆辰脱下外袍,把发冠摘下,褪去了束缚,穆辰轻松的吐了口气,没想到这次这么简单就熬过了,而且修为竟然没有倒退。

At once, Gu Yunjue had people prepare water and then returned to help Mu Chen take off his robes and crown. After shedding off his bindings, Mu Chen quietly let out a sigh. He didn’t expect that it would be so easy to endure it this time, moreover, his cultivation didn’t fall either.

他正在思考原因,却没有注意到身后的顾云玦看他时是何种眼神。

As he pondered over the reason, he didn’t notice Gu Yunjue’s expression as the other looked at him from behind.

顾云玦纤长的手指划过穆辰的肩头,眼底闪过一丝笑意,“师尊,徒儿继续喽。”

Gu Yunjue rested his fine and long fingers on Mu Chen’s shoulder, a slight smile in his eyes and said with chagrin, “Master, disciple will continue.”

穆辰听着他说话这个腔调,心里莫名的生出一股邪火,穆辰抓住顾云玦的手腕,想起这人的不听话,冷着脸道:“你出去罚跪。”

Once Mu Chen heard his tone, an evil fire was indescribably born in his chest. Mu Chen grabbed Gu Yunjue’s wrist, thinking back on how this disciple wasn’t obedient, he said with a cold face, “You, cas punishment.”

顾云玦手一顿,没明白穆辰为什么突然就翻了脸。

Gu Yunjue paused his hands, not understanding why Mu Chen suddenly changed his expression.

“什么时候明白哪里错了,什么时候再进来。”身体已经恢复了一些,穆辰站起身,拿出一瓶聚气丹,吃糖豆一样塞进嘴里三颗,默默估算了一下以他现在的力气,直接把顾云玦踹出去的几率有多少。

“Whenever it is that you understand your mistakes is when you can come back in.” His body already slightly recovered, Mu Chen stood up, took out a bottle of qi gathering pills, and like it was candy, stuffed 3 into his mouth. He silently assessed, with his current strength, what odds he had to directly kick Gu Yunjue out.

“师尊,徒儿不知道自己哪儿错了?”顾云玦脸上挂着微笑,温润如玉的气质稍微让穆辰的情绪缓和了些,“是徒儿抱了师尊的身体,还是抱了师尊的神魂?”

“Master, disciple doesn’t know what he has done wrong.” A smile was on Gu Yunjue’s face, warm as if the boy’s jade-like temperament would alleviate Mu Chen’s mood a bit.

TL note: In Chinese culture, Confucius has said that there are 11 virtues in jade so I think that this jade-like temperament is referring to a virtuous temperature. If wrong, please correct this ignorant me. ;-;

穆辰楞了一下,瞪眼,“都算!”

Mu Chen became even colder at once and scowled. “Everything counts!”

顾云玦挑挑眉,那就都不算,看来小师尊没有跟他计较这个,没把他当外人这一点他还是很欣慰的,可换句话说,小师尊还是没把他当男人看?顾云玦眯了眯眼睛,乖巧的拉住穆辰的手,晃了晃,“那就是徒儿擅自保护师尊,让师尊担心了。”

Gu Yunjue raised his eyebrow, then wouldn’t everything not count. It seems that his master didn’t want to argue about these stuff with him. He was happy that his master didn’t see him as an outsider, but in other words, didn’t it mean that master doesn’t see him as a man? Gu Yunjue narrowed his eyes and lovingly pulled Mu Chen’s hand and swung it back and forth. “Then disciple will protect master and let master feel at ease.”

穆辰:“……”

Mu Chen: “……”

“师尊对徒儿这么好,徒儿当时什么都没想就冲了进去,当时心里想着,若是师尊出事了,徒儿怎能一个人独活?”

“Master is really good to disciple, so that time, disciple didn’t think before rushing in. In my heart it thought that if something happened to master, how coud disciple continue living alone?

穆辰:“……”

Mu Chen: “……”

“徒儿果然还是最喜欢师尊。”

“Sure enough, disciple still likes master best.”

穆辰:“……”

Mu Chen “……”

“连殉情这种事情,徒儿也是做得出来的。”

“Even something like sacrificing oneself for love is something disciple can do.”

已经恢复了一些力气的穆辰惊愕的抬起腿,一脚把顾云玦踹了出去,关门,落锁,冷声道:“去门口跪着!”

The stupefied Mu Chen who has already recovered some more strength lifted his leg, kicked Gu Yunjue out, closed the door, locked it and said with a cold voice, “Go kneel at the gate!”

抱着一个大水桶要进屋的镜明差点被门板拍到,利落的闪到一旁,看着顾云玦肚子上的脚印,他幸灾乐祸的走过去拍拍对方的肩膀,“你竟然又惹宫主生气了?这次不是跑圈,是罚跪啊,哈哈哈……”为顾云玦背了十年的锅,看见顾云玦倒霉,镜明突然有种废狗要翻身的感觉,这种心情爽的都能飞起来。

Jing Ming, carrying a large bucket of water and about to enter the building, nearly slammed against the opening doors. He swiftly dodged to the side and saw the footprint on Gu Yunjue stomach. Rejoicing in the other’s misfortune, he walked over and patted the other’s shoulder. “Did you really go anger palace master again? You can’t run around it this time, the punishment is by kneeling isn’t it, ha ha ha……” After looking after Gu Yunjue like carrying a pot on his back for ten years, once he saw Gu Yunjue’s bad luck, Jing Ming suddenly had the guts and felt like he was an abandoned dog that came upon a fortune, making him feel as if he could fly.

顾云玦暗笑,小师尊这点真是超可爱,反应不过来的时候翻脸,害羞的时候翻脸,感动的时候再受点刺激,同样翻脸。翻脸后做的第一反应就是踹人,现在再加上罚跪……顾云玦笑着捏了捏脑门,他现在也很累,神魂异常虚弱,小师尊竟然不心疼他。

Gu Yunjue laughed into his sleeve. Master was really super adorable. When he couldn’t find a response, he would become hostile. If he was embarrassed, he would become hostile. Even when master was touched, he would become upset and still become hostile. After becoming hostile, the first thing he would do was kick people and now he added a kneeling punishment…… Gu Yunjue laughed as he kneaded his forehead. These days, he has been awfully tired and his spirit soul was abnormally weak, and master wasn’t even distressed for him.

镜明被顾云玦的笑容吓了一跳,嘟囔了一句神经病,被罚了还这么高兴,再次抱起大水桶,准备敲门,没想到顾云玦捏了捏脑门之后,直接后仰,晕了过去。

Jing Ming was scared and jumped from Gu Yunjue’s laugh and mumbled the words mental case to himself, to be this happy after being punished. He then picked up the large bucket again and prepared to knock on the door but didn’t after that after Gu Yunjue kneaded his head, the boy would look up and passed out.

镜明倒吸了口凉气,还没来得及喊穆辰,就见已经关了的房门砰的一声被打开,只穿着中衣的穆辰披头散发的冲出去,拎着顾云玦的衣领子就给拖了回去。这个混蛋小崽子,灵力已经告竭,身体比他还虚弱,竟然还敢说这么多废话,简直是不知死活!

Jing Ming sucked in cold air and before he even had time to call out to Mu Chen, he already saw the closed doors open with a bang and a disheveled Mu Chen running out only to pick up Gu Yunjue and drag him inside. This little scoundrel child, his spirit power was already exhausted and his body was even weaker than his own and he still dared saying so much rubbish, he was simply being reckless!

镜明赶紧跟上,察觉到穆辰情绪不稳定,识相的一句废话都没有。

Jing Ming quickly followed behind him, noticed Mu Chen’s unstable mood and, tactfully, didn’t say any nonsense at all.

穆辰取出丹药,托着顾云玦的头,把药喂下去,掩不住眼里的担忧。

Mu Chen took out some medicinal pills, propped up Gu Yunjue’s head and fed him the pills, his eyes unable to conceal his concern.

小徒弟的神魂冲进他灵台内的时候,好像有哪里是违和的,穆辰想到这一点,把少有的灵力探进顾云玦的体内,想要一探究竟。奈何对方的灵台外围被护魂铃护着,他根本查探不到对方的神魂。把这个疑惑压在心底,穆辰把顾云玦抱起来,扔进浴桶,挽起袖子打算先把徒弟洗干净。

When his small disciple’s spirit soul rushed into his spirit terrace, there seemed to be something out of place. As Mu Chen thought about it, he let out his spirit power to investigate Gu Yunjue’s body. But was to no avail, the other’s spirit terrace was completely protected by the soul bell so he couldn’t probe the other’s spirit soul at all. Pushing his suspicious to the bottom of his heart, Mu Chen picked up Gu Yunjue into his arms, threw him into barrel of water and rolled up his sleeves to wash his disciple all clean.

镜明左右看了看,也没人能帮忙,赶紧凑过去问:“宫主,我来?”

Jing Ming looked around him, not seeing anyone that could help him, he quickly asked “Palace Master, should I come?”

穆辰冷着脸拒绝,把顾云玦从水里晃了晃,直接捞出来扔上床,镜明幸灾乐祸的看了顾云玦一眼,这十年来顾云玦对穆辰都是贴身照顾,穿衣吃饭都不用穆辰动手,还把整个炎阳宫打理的妥妥当当。宫主本就不会照顾别人,现在被养的快连自己都照顾不好,顾云玦……也算是自作自受。

Mu Chen refused with a cold face and put Gu Yunjue into the water and shook him around and then fished him up and threw him onto the bed. Jing Ming took joy in the other’s calamity as he glimpsed at Gu Yunjue. For these past ten years, Gu Yunjue acted like Mu Chen’s personal servant and took care of him. Putting on clothes, having a meal, Mu Chen didn’t have to his hand at all. He even managed YanYang palace all properly. Palace Master simply didn’t have the ability to take care of others and was taken care of to the point of not being able care for himself. Gu Yunjue…… has finally reaped what he has sown.

让镜明又去后山抱了一桶灵泉的水,穆辰简单的洗漱过后,换了衣服坐在顾云玦的身边,想着自己胸口处那朵黑色的莲花已经快要消失,穆辰叹了口气,也许随着时间的流逝,曾经徒弟留下保护他的东西都会消失不见,连一丝缅怀的东西都留不下。好在眼前的人还在,聪明乖顺,不会再重蹈上一世的覆辙。

Making Jing Ming go to the rear mountain to get a bucket of spirit spring water again, Mu Chen simply washed his face, changed clothes, and sat at Gu Yunjue’s side. Thinking that the black lotus that grew at the pit of his stomach has nearly faded away, Mu Chen let out a sigh. Perhaps as time passed, the things his disciple left behind to protect him would disappear and not even a fond memory would be left. Fortunately, the person in front of him was still here, smart and obedient, and wouldn’t follow the same road from his disastrous previous life.

从一个五岁的孩童,养到现在,穆辰看着顾云玦退去了肉乎乎包子脸,变成俊美无双的少年模样,欣慰的摸了摸小徒弟的脸,有些感慨,最终,还是会长大的。长大了就该放他出去历练闯荡,会有自己喜欢的人,会离他越来越远。想到这里穆辰就有些不爽,不满的掐起顾云玦的脸,穆辰暗生闷气,等他出去历练的时候自己也要跟着,省得被丑丫头引诱,再入魔途,那自己这十年的心血岂不是白费了?

From a 5 years old child raised up until now, Mu Chen watched the Gu Yunjue that pushed plump steamed bun into his face turn into a unique handsome youth. He comfortably stroked his young disciple’s face and let out a somewhat sorrowful sigh. In the end, he has still grown up. Once his disciple’s grown up, he should let his disciple to learn out in the world, to find people that he likes, and leave him even further. Thinking of this, Mu Chen felt unwell, pinched Gu Yunjue’s face with discontent and sulked secretly. When it’s time for his disciple to go out into the world, he himself would follow after him, preventing any disgraceful girls from coercing his disciple from entering the devil’s path again. Wouldn’t his meticulous work to raise him for 10 years be wasted?

TL note: Girl here is said as servant girl with is generally used deprecatingly.

顾云玦睁开眼,含笑的看着穆辰,小师尊竟然趁他睡着了掐他的脸。

Gu Yunjue opened his eyes and looked at Mu Chen with a smile. His dear master has unexpectantly took advantage of him to pinch his face while he was asleep.

穆辰面无表情的松开手,被抓包之后耳尖泛起一圈淡淡的粉,脸上还是清冷如霜,“去你的房间好好休息,好了再去罚跪。”

With a blank face, Mu Chen let go with his hand. After being caught in the act, the tips of his ears seemed to be a faint pink but his face was still cold and white. “Go to your room and properly rest. When you’re better, go do your kneeling punishment.”

“师尊,”顾云玦没有接这句话,反而认真的看他,“以后有事不要瞒我,好不好?”墨色的眸子中好像隐藏了什么,穆辰看不明白,却也知道顾云玦担心自己,到了嘴边的严厉话语没能说出口,穆辰有些沉默。

“Master.” Before Gu Yunjue finished listening to these words, he earnestly looked at the other. “From now on, if there’s something wrong, don’t keep me in the dark, all right?” His black eyes seemed to hide something but Mu Chen didn’t understand it but he knew that Gu Yunjue was worried about him. In the end, the strict words he was about to say couldn’t be said. Mu Chen was silent.

顾云玦也不逼他,继续道:“这些年您买的药材,应该是为了解毒吧,我都知道。”

Gu Yunjue also didn’t pressure Mu Chen to speak and continued to talk, “The medicinal ingredients you bought these years must be to detoxify the poison. I know everything.”

穆辰叹了口气,无奈的摸了摸顾云玦的头,小徒弟太聪明,一点都瞒不住他。

Mu Chen let out a sigh and helplessly patted his disciple’s head. His disciple was too smart, he couldn’t hide anything from him.

顾云玦歪头,唇角落在穆辰的手上,严肃的问他:“您还差几味药,徒儿帮您一起找。”

Gu Yunjue tilted his head, his lips now under Mu Chen’s hand, and seriously asked “What herbs are you still missing? Disciple will help you find them together.”

穆辰沉默片刻,终是不忍心打击徒弟的孝心,“还差玉容芝、五色花和冰魄珠,为师自有分寸,你不必担心。”

Mu Chen was silent. In the end, he didn’t have the heart to scold his apprentice’s filial piety. “There’s still the Jade Zoysia Pungens, 5-Colored Blossom, and Ice Soul Pearl missing. But your Master has them so you don’t need to worry about them.”

“师尊?”

“Master?”

“嗯?”

“En?”

“你累不累?”

“Are you tired?”

“不累……”穆辰对上顾云玦的眼睛,本来疲惫的身体突然一阵眩晕,紧接着两眼一黑,顾云玦赶紧把他接住,任怀里的人倒在自己的胸口,看着穆辰憔悴的模样,心疼的用指尖描绘着他精致的眉眼,看似无情的薄唇落在穆辰的发梢,轻轻烙下一个轻吻,低声道:“没有下次了。”

“Not tired……” Mu Chen looked into Gu Yunjue’s eyes and of course, his exhausted body underwent a sudden spell of dizziness and his sight turned black. Gu Yunjue hurriedly caught him, placing the man into his chest. He stared at Mu Chen’s haggard appearance, his heart pained as his fingertips traced Mu Chen’s delicate features. Mu Chen’s pitiful pale and lips was under his hair ends. Lightly picking a strand up to kiss, Gu Yunjue said in low voice, “There won’t be a next time.”

此时,体型没变多少的黑蛋悄悄从窗户探出一个脑袋,黑溜溜的一身绒毛,肥翅膀圆肚子,头顶竖着三撮金毛,情绪一激动就抖两下。顾云玦见它来了,终于抬头,对它勾了勾手指头。黑蛋小心的拽着屁股挪进来,看见躺在顾云玦胸口睡得正沉的穆辰,惊骇的瞪大血色的圆眼睛:造孽哦!

Right at this moment, Black Egg, whose body hasn’t changed very much, stealthily stretched his head through the window. He still had his black soft feathers, fat wings, a round body, and three golden feathers on his head and it all trembled as he stirred. Gu Yunjue noticed it come in. Eventually he looked up and beckoned it over with his finger. Black Egg carefully dragged his bottom into the room, saw Mu Chen in deep sleep in Gu Yunjue’s arms and, in shock, opened his red round eyes wide: Oh, he has committed a sin!

顾云玦勾了勾嘴角,让黑蛋靠的更近些。

Gu Yunjue crooked the corner of his mouth and had Black Egg come even closer.

黑蛋小心的又往前挪了挪,吃了季清远的神魂之后,本以为可以逃脱顾云玦的控制,没想到它这个元婴期的魔兽,面对顾云玦还是没有还手之力。黑蛋已经认命了,跟着这样的主人,最起码能吃饱。最近几年,顾云玦给它提供了不少食物,黑蛋默默安慰自己。

Black Egg carefully shifted forward again. After eating Ji Qingyuan’s spirit soul, it thought that he could escape Gu Yunjue’s control but it didn’t expect that as a Nascent Soul stage magic beast it still had no power to retaliate against Gu Yunjue. Black Egg has already assigned his misfortunate fate. At least when following this kind of master he can eat his fill. In the last few years, Gu Yunjue supplied it with lots of food and Black Egg comforted itself in silence.

“把你的神魂借我用一些可好?”顾云玦开口就这一句。

“Won’t it be alright to let me borrow your spirit soul to use?” Gu Yunjue opened his mouth just to say this sentence.

“诶!?”黑蛋吓得头顶金毛又立起来了,它可以把充满血腥的罪恶魂魄炼化成纯净的灵魂之力,然后吞噬掉壮大自己的神魂,顾云玦所谓的想要借一点,就是抽他神魂的意思,黑蛋吓得扭头就想跑,就知道这人找自己没好事。他的神魂不是第一次被抽了,每次都是为了给穆辰增强魂力,要不然穆辰怎么可能三天就能把火毒镇压下去,甚至连修为都没有后退半分。

“Eh!?” Black Egg was so scared that his gold feathers stood up straight. It had the ability to refine its sinful soul full of blood into a pure spirit soul force. Gu Yunjue’s so-called asking to borrow a bit was simply meaning to pump out his soul. Black Egg was so scared that it turned its head wanting to run away. Whenever this person looked for it, it was never for something good. It wasn’t the first time that it’s spirit soul was drawn out. Each time was to strengthen Mu Chen’s soul power or else how could Mu Chen suppress the fire poison in 3 days without his cultivation from falling at all.

只是苦了黑蛋,炼化一个神魂它自己留一半,上交一半,每次想起来就跟挖它肉一样,心疼的不行。

Black Egg could only be bitter as it refined its spirit soul. It kept half for itself and handed over the other half. Each time he thought of it, it felt like it was like taking away its flesh and was distressed.

“啧,”顾云玦不耐烦的砸吧一下嘴,虚空中一拍,直接把黑蛋拍在桌上,动弹不得。

黑蛋挣扎了一下,完全没有挣脱开的可能,立马压低声音可怜兮兮的叫唤,“我给给给!”

“Tch.” Gu Yunjue impatiently pounded the other’s mouth, slapping it into the empty air and sent Black Egg onto the table, unable to move a single step.

顾云玦勾唇一笑,虚空中一抓,抓住黑蛋的神魂往外抽,待掌心出现一个纯白色的雾状球体,他才满意的放心,见黑蛋一副生无可恋的模样,顾云玦弹了弹它头顶的毛,安慰道:“一会儿让人给你抓几个恶魂补一补。”

Gu Yunjue raised his mouth into a smile and reached out into the air and grabbed Black Egg’s spirit soul departing from its body. Only when he saw a pure white misty sphere appear in the palm of his hand did he feel relieved. Seeing Black Egg’s appear like it had nothing left to live for, Gu Yunjue patted it’s head feathers and comforted it, “In a while, I’ll have someone snatch a few evil souls for you to repair the damage.”

黑蛋趴在原地,已经不想动了,反正吃了还是要吐出来的,鸦生就像自己的毛一样黑暗,不能好了。

Black Egg was still lying at the same spot, already not wanting to move anymore. In any case, even if he ate it, he would still have to spit it out. Crows were born with the similar dark feathers as his and it can’t be any better.

顾云玦引导着那股魂力,注入穆辰的灵台深处,本来黯淡无光的小人就像突然找到了营养,被这股魂力温润之后瞬间精神起来。看着穆辰的脸色渐渐变得红润,顾云爵微微眯起眼眸,发誓在下一次火毒发作之前,一定要把穆辰这个身体隐患解决掉。

Gu Yunjue guided this spirit force and poured it into the depths of Mu Chen’s spirit terrace. Like a starving person in a dark place without light suddenly finding nourishment, after the spirit terrace was warmed by this spirit force, its spirit was more vigorous in an instant. Seeing a rosy color returning to Mu Chen’s face, Gu Yunjue squinted his eyes a bit, vowing to himself that he must resolve the danger in Mu Chen’s body before the next flare up of the fire poison.

那两种草药还毫无头绪,不过五色花他是知道的,这花生长在魔界,并不是特别难寻,可对于仙界之人来说,那里具有腐蚀性的瘴气让他们根本无法靠近。顾云玦看着穆辰的睡颜,突然才想起穆辰曾经为了寻药独闯魔界,现在想来应该是为了五色花。

He had no idea on two of the herbs for the medicine, but he did know about the 5-Colored Flower. This flower grew in the devil realm and wasn’t particularly hard to find but for people from the immortal realm to say, that place has a qi miasma that corrodes character so they aren’t able to approach at all. Gu Yunjue looked at Mu Chen’s sleeping face and suddenly recalled Mu Chen once rushed into the devil world in order to search for his cure. He now assumed that it must have been for the 5-Colored Flower.

把管善叫来,顾云玦对其吩咐道:“派人去魔界,我需要三株五色花。”

After he called Guan Shan to come, Gu Yunjue commanded “Send some people to the devil realm . I need 3 stalks of the 5-Colored Flower.

管善蹙眉,担忧的问:“少主,我们现在回魔界,会不会打草惊蛇?”

Guan Shan frowned and worriedly asked, “Young Master. If we return to the devil realm, will we be beating the grass to scare the snake?

TL Note: to beat the grass to scare the snake = to inadvertently alert an enemy or to punish somebody as a warning to others

顾云玦淡淡一笑,温柔的看着穆辰的睡颜,眼中除了这个人,再也容不下其他,仿佛怕吵醒怀中的人一般,他语气温和,却又气定神闲的道:“若是敢挡我的路,我不介意弑兄杀父。”

Gu Yunjue let out a light laugh and warmly looked at Mu Chen’s face. In his eyes, outside of this individual, there wasn’t any room for others. As if he was scared of waking the person in his arms, he spoke in a warm but composed tone, “If someone were to obstruct my path, I wouldn’t mind killing my senior brothers or murdering my father.”

管善心头一凛,低头赶紧退了下去,自始至终,没敢看穆辰一眼。

Guan Shan’s heart first shivered and he bowed his head and hurriedly moved back down. From start to finish, he didn’t dare look at Mu Chen at all.

————

穆辰睡醒之后,感觉自己整个人精神充沛,灵力运转正常,状态比火毒发作之前都要好。正惊讶身体的变化,就感觉床的里侧不太对……

After Mu Chen woke up, he felt that his entire spirit energy was abundant, his spirit energy working all fine, his state even better than how it was before the fire poison flare up. He felt astonished to his body’s changes but he felt that the of the bed wasn’t quite right flat……

顾云玦坐在床上,单手拄着下巴,笑眯眯的看着他,一张俊美却稍显稚气的脸,好看的直晃人眼。穆辰在意的不是徒弟越长越好看,而是床内侧,和顾云玦的寝室之间的墙,没了!

Gu Yunjue was sitting on the bed, one hand propping up his chin, and watched him with a smile on his face. His face was handsome but with a childish charm, so handsome that it dazzled people’s eyes. What Mu Chen cared about wasn’t that his disciple became more good-looking the older he got, but rather that the bed was inclined and that the dividing wall in Gu Yunjue’s room was gone!

他和顾云玦的房间格局相似,第一层为客厅,二层寝室,三层书房,现在二层被整个打通,两间寝室连在一起,床挨着床,中间就隔了一层纱织的床幔。

The structure of his and Gu Yunjue’s room were similar. The first floor was to receive guests, the second floor a bedroom, and the third floor a study room. Now, the second floor was completely open and two bedrooms were connected together, the beds right next to each other with a layer of woven cotton yarn between them.

穆辰惊愕的愣在床边,怎么回事?

Mu Chen was stunned and just stared blankly on the bed, what’s going on?

顾云玦坐在床上摊着手,一脸无辜的道:“为了贴身照顾师尊,徒儿只能想到这个办法。”

Gu Yunjue continued sitting on the bed, spread his fingers and, with an innocent face, said, “In order to take close care of master, disciple could only think of this method.”

“所以你把墙拆了?”穆辰冷着脸,显然对这个解释非常不满,在他的意识里,他根本就不需要被徒弟照顾,这些年不一直是他在照顾顾云玦吗?要不然这小东西怎么能长这么大?大到有胆子在他昏睡的时候拆墙,简直是岂有此理!

“Is that why you took down the wall?” Mu Chen’s face was cold, clearly very dissatisfied with this explanation. To his awareness, he simply didn’t need to be taken care of by his disciple. Wasn’t it always him taking caring of Gu Yunjue these years? Or else, how could this person be able to grow this big? Big enough to have the courage to tear down the wall when he’s asleep. It’s simply preposterous!

顾云玦站起来,撩开帘子抬起脚,轻松的迈到穆辰的床上,脸上笑容不变,却又更添了几分担忧,“师尊,如果您在我看不见的时候再出意外,我该怎么后悔才能弥补自己犯下的错?”

Gu Yunjue stood up, opened the curtains and raised his legs, heading towards Mu Chen’s bed. His face had a constant smile but more worry was appearing. “Master, if something happens to you when I don’t know about it, how should I repent to make up for my mistakes.”

穆辰蹙了蹙眉,想说这根本就不是你的错,可惜顾云玦根本没给他开口的机会,坐在床边搂住穆辰的腰,继续道:“如果师尊不在了,徒儿活着的意义也没有了,师尊忍心吗?”

Mu Chen knitted his brows, wanting to say that it simply wasn’t the other’s mistake. Unfortunately, Gu Yunjue simply didn’t give him the opportunity to speak as he sat at the bedside and embraced Mu Chen’s waist and continued saying, “If master passes away, disciple’s reason to live will also go away. Does master have the heart to do that?”

“你……”穆辰无语,看着眼前少年模样的顾云玦,有些不知道该怎么说,也许是他对徒弟太过娇惯,养的对方到现在还是对他这么依恋。这马上就要十六岁,行成人礼,还要抱着他撒娇……穆辰摸了摸抵在自己胸口的脑袋,无奈的叹了口气,难道真是他的教育方法不对,这孩子怎么脆弱成这样子?如果他真的出点意外,让这孩子怎么活?

“You……” Mu Chen was speechless, seeing the young man Gu Yunjue. He didn’t know what to say. Maybe it’s because he spoiled his disciple too much that the other is still this fondly attached to him. His disciple was almost 16 and will soon have his coming of age ceremony but would still hug him while acting like a spoiled child…… Mu Chen rubbed the head that was at his waist and helplessly let out a sigh. Could it truly be that the way he educated him was wrong and that this child was crippled into this? If he really gets into an accident, how could he continue to make this child live?

“算了,依你吧。”穆辰有些无力,他觉得可能是自己的教育方式出了问题。

“Forget about it, I’ll be depending on you then.” Mu Chen was somewhat powerless, he felt that it might be his raising method that led to this problem.

看着镜明抱着一本小画书从窗外路过,穆辰突然灵机一动,把管善叫来。

Seeing Jing Ming carrying a small picture book as he passed by the window, Mu Chen suddenly had a bright idea and called for Guan Shan to come.

当天,管善下山去了趟世俗界,买了一大箱教育孩子的书籍,足足上百斤,真是五花八门,写啥的都有。穆辰就坐在竹林中,一本接一本的认真品读。看不明白的还做了标识,打算抽空去问问把褚千双养大的柳寒之。对方那样的脾气,还能把小六教育成这样,自己怎么就不行?

That same day, Guan Shan went down the mountain, took a trip to the secular group and bought a large box of books for teaching children, no less than a catty’s worth. There were all sorts, whatever you thought of, there was. Mu Chen sat within the bamboo forest, reading each book earnestly. He couldn’t understand what he did and planned to make time to go ask Liu Hanzhi who was raised by Chu Qianshuang. The other had such a temperament but was still able to raise little six into what he is but how could he not be able to do it?

TL note: 1 catty = 500 g

书上说,十六岁正好是从孩童向青年过渡的时期,是人类生长发育过程中一个特殊的阶段。穆辰抬头看了眼正坐在窗边给琴调音色的顾云玦,蹙了蹙眉,确实够特殊,这孩子最近净是喜欢舞文弄墨,效仿那些个文人骚客,怎么喜欢上了弹琴?

The book said that at 16 years old was a period of transition from a child into a young man and a special stage in the growth and development of humans. Mu Chen looked up at Gu Yunjue who was tuning a qin on the bed and furrowed his eyebrows. It really was special. This child recently fond of ink calligraphy like those scholars. Why is he now fond of playing a qin?

TL note: qin is probably a guqin which is a plucked 7-string instrument from the zither family.

书上还说,这个时间段很是特殊,因为这个期间会发生的一系列生理和心理的剧烈变化,其引出的矛盾和问题,如果得不到正确的、及时的帮助和解决,将会影响到一个人今后的发展,甚至会影响到一生。

The book also said that this period was special since there will be a series of large physiological and psychological changes and contradictions and questions will arise. If they can’t find what’s right, timely aid, or a resolution, it will affect how that person will develop from then after, even influencing his entire life.

穆辰有点担忧,会影响一生啊,说不定一不小心这孩子又扭曲了,这可如何是好?

Mu Chen was a bit worried, it could affect his entire life ah. He couldn’t say for sure that if he weren’t careful, this child could become warped again. How could this be good?

越往下看,穆辰越心惊,十五六岁的男孩子,希望接触到异性,渴望爱情或……性?

Reading even further down, Mu Chen became more fearful. 15-16 year old boys desire to touch the opposite sex, longing for love or maybe… sex?

舞文弄墨要去讨女孩子欢心?!

Was he learning literature and calligraphy to attract the favor of a girl?!

顾云玦感觉到穆辰的脸色一直在变,还一直在观察自己,嘴角挑起一抹愉悦的微笑,身形一晃来到穆辰身边,好奇的问他:“师尊,您在看什么?”

Gu Yunjue felt Mu Chen’s expression constantly changing as the man constantly observed him. The corners of his mouth raised into a delighted smile, his figure quickly moved to Mu Chen’s side and he curiously asked, “Master, what are you looking at?”

穆辰冷下脸,把书收起来,语气平淡的道:“没什么。”

Mu Chen’s face became cold, closed the book, and said in a flat tone, “Nothing.”

顾云玦淡笑着拉他袖子,“嗯?被师尊藏起来了?”

Gu Yunjue lightly laughed and pulled the other’s sleeve. “En? Didn’t master hide it?

穆辰蹙眉,小徒弟长大之后还是这么喜欢粘着自己,哪有徒儿拽师尊的袖子拽的如此顺手的?

Mu Chen frowned, his disciple has already grown up but still likes to stick to him. Which person would tug on his master’s sleeve as easily as his disciple?

“师尊不想说,徒儿不问便是。”顾云玦站在穆辰身边,抬手理了理他的头发,提议道:“师尊要不要随徒儿出去走走?”

“If master won’t say then disciple won’t ask anymore.” Gu Yunjue stood at Mu Chen’s side, raised his hands to tidy his hair, and proposed, “Master, do you want to go on a walk with disciple?”

穆辰冷着脸,对出去走走没什么兴趣的样子。

Mu Chen still had a cold face, seeming to not have any interest in going out for a walk.

顾云玦继续道:“听说淇阳城的拍卖会里,今天会拍卖一只九尾狐,一身白毛若雪,聪明伶俐,咱们去看看怎么样?”

Gu Yunjue continued saying “I heart that in the Qiyang City Auction there will be a nine-tailed fox for auction today. It has snow white fur and is clever and quick-witted. How about we go take a look at it?”

穆辰眉毛动了动,有些感兴趣的样子。

Mu Chen raised his eyebrows, seeming as if he’s somewhat interested.

顾云玦压下到了嘴边的笑意,拉着穆辰的手腕轻哄道:“徒儿想要,师尊买给我好不好?”

Gu Yunjue pressed down his smile, pulled at Mu Chen’s hand and lightly coaxed, “Disciple wants it. Is it ok for master to buy it for me?”

穆辰站起来,理了理自己的衣襟,率先走了出去,脚步还挺快。

Mu Chen stood up, tidied up the front of his clothes, and led the way out, his steps quite quick.

顾云玦嘴角勾起,看着穆辰的背影笑着摇了摇头,笑容里是不加掩饰的宠溺,正要举步跟上,就见穆辰身前出现了一道传讯符,火焰燃烧之后虚空中出现一句话:速来落仙楼!结尾一个陈字。

Gu Yunjue raised the corners of his mouth, and laughed and shook his head as he watched Mu Chen’s back. Just as he was about to catch up with him, he saw summoning talisman appear in front of Mu Chen. After it ignited into flames, words appeared in the empty sky: Quickly come to the Sinking Immortal Tavern. End of message.

顾云玦就见本来冷着脸的穆辰,竟然目露喜色,顾云玦掩下眼底的寒意,快走两步拉住穆辰的手,顺势扑过去搂住穆辰的腰,笑问:“师尊,你想去见谁?”

Gu Yunjue watched Mu Chen’s originally cold expression unexpectedly reveal a happy expression and he covered the coldness within his own eyes. He quickly walked two steps and tugged Mu Chen hand, seizing the opportunity to pounce over and embrace Mu Chen’s waist, and happily asked, “Master, who are you going to see?”

穆辰抓住扣在自己腰上的胳膊,拽了拽,竟然没有扯开,他惊讶的看了顾云玦一眼,小时候抱腿,长大了抱腰,还不知道以后会怎样。他徒儿好像对撒娇特别有天赋,都是黏上来就撕不下去的那种。

Mu Chen grabbed the arm wrapped around his waist, pulled at it and unexpectedly didn’t pull it off. He glanced at Gu Yunjue with surprise. In childhood the boy hugged his leg and now all grown up, he hugs his waist. He didn’t know how he would be in the future. His disciple seemed to be very skilled at acting like a spoiled child, the type that once he has stuck himself, he couldn’t be torn away.

顾云玦把头抵在穆辰的后肩上,轻轻一笑,暖暖的鼻息撒在穆辰敏感的后脖颈处,引得穆辰微微侧了侧头,抬头扣住小徒弟的脑袋往后推,冷下脸训斥道:“不许胡闹!”

Gu Yunjue rested his head on the back of Mu Chen’s shoulders and let out a soft laugh, his warm breath casting itself on Mu Chen’s sensitive neck. Mu Chen leaned his head slightly to the side, pushed his disciple’s head back and reprimanded with a cold face, “Don’t make trouble.”

顾云玦也不勉强,继续去拉穆辰的手,被穆辰甩开几次之后还是不依不饶,穆辰无奈,虽然知道徒儿这样对他撒娇不好,可又挨不住心软,只能由他去了。

Gu Yunjue didn’t stop but continued moving while pulling Mu Chen hand. After being shaken off by Mu Chen several times, he still didn’t care. Mu Chen was helpless. Although he knew that his disciple acting spoiled was to him was not good, he couldn’t help but to be soft to him and could only leave him be.

自己没有养孩子的经验,好好的孩子被他养的这么黏人,穆辰想起来就叹气,到底是哪里出了问题?

He didn’t have any experience in raising children and he has raised a good child into a clingy one. As Mu Chen recalled the fact, he heaved a sigh. Just where did he go wrong?

崇云门下淇阳城,落仙楼。

Qiyang City at the base of Lofty Cloud Sect, Sinking Immortal Tavern.

恰逢午时,落仙楼宾客满棚,过往的修士大都选择在这里落脚,吃点酒水,顺便打听些小道一些消息。真假不知,总之都是道听途说,全当茶余饭后的谈资。

Right at noon, Sinking Immortal Tavern was full of guests. Most traveling cultivators choose to stay here, eat and drink while conveniently asking about information be it genuine or fake, in the end it’s all rumors, something everyone likes to talk about leisurely.

一黑衣男子正和同伴谈论,“据说这望辰阁的幕后之人是个貌美的女子,有倾城之姿,不过见过的人寥寥无几,真是神秘。”

A man in black clothes was talking with his companion, “I heard that the one behind Gazing Chen Pavilion is a beautiful young lady, beautiful enough to cause the downfall of a city. But, very few people have seen her. She really is mysterious.”

“一个女修若是没有大势力支持,只怕不会有今天的成就,各个行业都敢涉猎,黑白两道都让其三分,若是没人给撑腰……”他的同伴猥琐的笑了几声,凑近对方低声道:“没准儿是哪个老怪的姘头……唔!”

“If a women doesn’t have the support of the great powers, I’m afraid that they won’t have their current accomplishments. All business will dare dip onto the good and bad paths to get their own three points. But if no one gave their support…” His companion let out a vulgar laugh, leaned close to the other and said in low voice, “Maybe it’s that old devil’s mistress… Oh!”

“闭嘴吧你!”黑衣人抓起一根鸡腿使劲塞进同伴嘴里,把对方噎的脸色通红,他稍显紧张的左右看了看,发现无人关注他们,这才松了口气,没好气的道:“你找死啊,不知道望辰阁死人的买卖都做!”所谓死人的买卖,就是拿钱买命,只不过杀的都是有恶名之人,名门正派也就不会去管。不过既然牵扯了人命,难免有几分血煞之气,让人忌惮。

“Shut up!” The person in black grabbed a chicken leg and forcefully stuffed into his companion’s mouth, making the other suffocate and have a very red complexion. He nervously looked around him a bit, finding that no one was paying attention to them, he loosened his tone and unhappily said, “You’re courting death ah! Don’t you know about the Gazing Chen Pavilion’s business in buying selling dead people!” This so called buying and selling of the dead was precisely using money to buy a life only that the killed individuals all have evil reputations and the prestigious upright sects also doesn’t care. However, since it involves human life, there will inevitably be some bloody demonic qi, making people afraid of the consequences.

一个身穿青衣的年轻男子端着酒杯,听着俩人的谈论眼底闪过一丝玩味,清雅的嗓音轻声默念了一遍:“望辰阁?”把杯中酒一饮而尽,俊朗的脸上突然露出一个坏笑,“莫不是穆辰的爱慕者?望辰?啧。”

The black uniformed young man held a wine cup in his hand. As he listened to the two’s discussion, a playful light flashed through his eyes. In his elegant voice, he softly repeated their words to himself, “Gazing Chen Pavilion?” He drank the entire cup of wine in one gulp, suddenly exposing a smile on his handsome and bright face. “Isn’t that Mu Chen’s admirer? Gazing Chen? Tsk.”

TL Note: The Chen in the name of the place is the Chen in Mu Chen’s name. It’s a name filled with admiration and expectation toward Mu Chen… and a pain to translate into english

SnowTime: Kadence had this translated last month and I completely forgot about it >_>;; Sorry!

    Please, don’t abandon this story. I love your quality translations as they are some of the best I’ve read on here. Flying Lines has picked up this novel, but they are exactly like Joell55. They can’t translate worth a dime. I simply don’t want this story to be cheapened by sub-par translation work. I’m just soul-worn at the thought of another interesting novel being ruined. /sigh

    Thus, I’m begging. From a fan to a translator, please don’t abandon us.

        I’m crying with you! ;_;

        Honestly, all I’m thinking of as I write this comment, is the fact: I hope you create a miracle to finish translating this novel, because reading your tl’s was like finding little miracles that brightened up my day. How can you be so good! I like you so much, and that wonderful style of translating you have! ///>_<\\\

        Fighting, translator-nim! You can do it! <3<3
