“Elder Brother…why have you come? This is…”

Tang Lianxin was currently inside the Immortal’s Abode refining a Heavenly Spirit Astral Treasure “Phoenix Perching Red Clouds Clothes”1 for Gongsun Huang when she sensed the Immortal’s Abode had signs of activity and went forward to welcome Su Xing.

Seeing Su Xing and two girls whom she had never met appear at the same time, she was temporarily blank.

“Lianxin, this is Bright Star Ten Feet of Blue Hu Niangzi and Damage Star White Stripe in the Waves Zhang Yuqi…” Su Xing introduced.

Tang Lianxin showed astonishment. She slightly nodded her head, gazing at Su Xing with an expression full of inquisitiveness.

Su Xing then explained the short version of the events that transpired. Even with Tang Lianxin’s detached personality, she was somewhat unable to believe the twists and turns within.

“Solitary Star Gold Coin Spotted Leopard Tang Long? You’re really the Solitary Star?” Zhang Yuqi covered her mouth. She looked at that Great Sun Essence Butterfly somewhat as if she was in a dream.

“En, Elder Sister, as you please.” Tang Lianxin replied with her customary aloofness.

“Did you actually contract ten Sisters?” Zhang Yuqi asked, stupefied.

“What’s the point in fooling you.” Su Xing smiled, gazing at the Bright Star.

When Hu Niangzi heard this, she actually was briefly shocked. Afterwards, she did not bad an eyelid.

“How is this possible.” Zhang Yuqi frowned. Contracting ten Star Generals was unprecedented, could it be that Maiden Mountain changed the rules?

“Everything is possible.” Su Xing smiled.

Zhang Yuqi’s head hurt so much that she might as well have just stopped thinking. She turned to look at Su Xing’s Void Immortal’s Abode. Clicking her tongue, the abundant spiritual power far exceeded any ley line that Zhang Yuqi had ever seen. Furthermore, the center of the Immortal’s Abode was full of serene mountains, forests and lakes; everything that should have been there was there. She could even hear the sounds of birds and bugs, as if this was a world unto itself.

“The Purple Star Outlaw Writ…With Young Su here, the other Star Masters of this generation would cry without tears. It looks like this generation’s overlord is Young Su, exclusively…Little Sister Niangzi is truly very fortunate.” Zhang Yuqi laughed.

Hearing her words, Su Xing and Tang Lianxin were not happy at all. Recalling Maiden Mountain’s trials, Tang Lianxin’s ice-cold pupils were even more frigid.

“What’s wrong?” Zhang Yuqi was confused.

“Nothing, this sort of thing can be mentioned later.” Su Xing did not wish to bring up this topic.

Zhang Yuqi stared curiously at Su Xing but did not pursue her question.

“Why are the other Elder Sisters not present?” Hu Niangzi asked.

“They’ve all gone out to take care of some things.”

“Does Dear Husband not have the Sisters follow at your side?” Hu Niangzi felt that she could not understand. Having contracted so many Sisters yet having none at his side, what was the use?

Su Xing forced a smile. There was no way around this. If they still could have stayed together like this, he would have liked to see that. Perhaps Maiden Mountain would have also liked to have seen that, but his strength could not possibly grow further.

“Little Sister Niangzi does not understand this. They definitely have gone to upgrade Star Weapons. With so many Sisters together, is that not able to turn all of Liangshan Continent on its head.” Zhang Yuqi smiled.

Hu Niangzi was silent.

“Elder Brother, did you meet with trouble for the Gen Wu Divine Iron?” Tang Lianxin asked at this time.

Su Xing remembered this matter. He flipped his hand, and twelve pieces of Gen Wu Divine Iron flew out of his Astral Bag. “Many thanks to Yuqi, things were much more smooth than I had imagined.”

Tang Lianxin cast a look of thanks at Zhang Yuqi: “If Elder Sister is in need, Lianxin can help Elder Sister refine a few Astral Tools and Treasures.”

“Don’t mention it. Actually, Yuqi also made a deal with Young Su before, it wasn’t free.” Zhang Yuqi waved her hand.

Su Xing again explained things.

Tang Lianxin did not say anything.

“Lianxin, how long will it take roughly to refine this Gen Wu Divine Iron?” Su Xing asked. Gen Wu Divine Iron was a top-notch Earth-type Spirit Stone. Its hardness could be compared to the Ancient Holy Beast, Gen Wu, from which it received the name. However, because Gen Wu Divine Iron was honestly too difficult to refine, this was an enormous challenge for a tool refinement master.

If a normal cultivator wanted to use Gen Wu Divine Iron to refine a Flying Sword, it would require at least several years. Continuously using dan fire to smelt it, it was possible to turn it into materials to refine Flying Swords, however, even if it was one of Liangshan Continent’s tool refinement sect master, perhaps Ju Yueke could only reduce the time by only a half.

If it was before, even if Su Xing had obtained the Gen Wu Divine Iron, perhaps it would have no use. Just with the Solitary Star here, even if Tang Lianxin was a top-notch tool refinement sect master, she would be ashamed of her inferiority. She had the Great Sun Essence Flame Butterfly’s assistance as a tool refining Star Beast, and it could greatly reduce the time, but even so, Tang Lianxin reckoned she would need around forty days.

However, forty days was still too long.

“Lianxin will prepare to return to the sect and borrow the sect’s Four Styles Earthly Fire ley line with master to cut the time in half.” Tang Lianxin said.

To shrink one year into twenty days, this was already the greatest limit of what the Solitary Star could achieve.

Black Turtle Temple was after fifteen days. It was a pity that he could not make it in time, but Su Xing naturally could not plead too much, “Lianxin, then I’ll have to trouble you.”

“Elder Brother does not need to talk about trouble.” Tang Lianxin’s eyes were somewhat dry: “This is the only thing that Lianxin can do to help Elder Brother.”

“Don’t say something so dejecting, we’re letting Niangzi see something laughable. You were willing to stay by my side, I’m already very happy.” Su Xing then hugged Tang Lianxin’s shoulder.

“En.”

There was no time to lose. Tang Lianxin did not have time to delay any further. She took the twelve pieces of Gen Wu Divine Iron, turned and moved from the Black Turtle Territory Immortal’s Abode to the Four Styles School’s Immortal Abode to begin putting her hand into helping Su Xing refine the Gen Wu Divine Iron.

Zhang Yuqi was very curious about Su Xing’s sect and followed over, having the sense to leave the Immortal’s Abode to just the two of Su Xing and Hu Niangzi.

“They’re all very good people. Niangzi, you needn’t worry too much.” Su Xing saw that Hu Niangzi’s expression concealed a bit of unease, and then he consoled her.

Hu Niangzi shook her head, tightly pursing her lips, rousing her courage to ask: “Dear Husband, are you still willing to help complete Niangzi’s wish?”

“I keep my promises. Even if you don’t talk, know this. Yingmei, Siyou and the others won’t ignore you.” Su Xing tenderly said.

“Dear Husband and the Sisters get along very well.” Hu Niangzi’s expression was complex.

Su Xing knew what she was thinking. Hu Niangzi had forced a contract on hip upon seeing his cultivation. She wanted to seize the chance and use him to face Guan Ying. Before this, Hu Niangzi more or less was somewhat arrogant, but today, knowing Su Xing still had other Sisters following him, in addition to each one being well-renowned far and wide, shaking Liangshan, Hu Niangzi’s heart was ill at ease.

In Hu Niangzi’s eyes, her conduct was more or less unbearable. Although vengeance was promising, her heart nevertheless had a bit of regret.

When Su Xing introduced her, he did not mention the forced contract at all, more or less because he understood her thoughts. He patted the girl’s shoulder, saying apologetically: “Don’t bring trouble on yourself. Actually, I wanted to secretly tell you – I really wanted to sign a contract with you two, including White Stripe in the Waves!”

“Dear Husband, you are somewhat greedy.”

“En, I feel the same way. However, greed is always better than you Sisters slaughtering each other.” Su Xing shook his head, sorrowful.

Although he was unintentionally inducted into the Star Duels, but Star Generals signed contracts to serve their masters. At that time, how could there be any feelings to speak of. If you did not kill, then I would.

However, Su Xing also knew that his own wish was only wishful thinking.

Hu Niangzi showed an odd expression.

“You can rest for now.” Su Xing said.

Hu Niangzi nodded. After Su Xing left, the Bright Star lowered her head and clenched her teeth. She made a decision – Ying’er, wait until after This Wife kills Guan Ying and her Star Master. Then, This Wife will come to Maiden Mountain to join you…Dear Husband has so many Sisters, Niangzi does not need to worry about him.

Hu Niangzi muttered to herself, fully revealing her sadness.

Two Supercluster disciples of the Fiend Soul Sect flew above the sky on their riding swords. The Flying Swords became soul-shadows, sweeping past with black tails. The Black Turtle Temple was about to open, and the Fiend Soul Sect gave its disciples leaving seclusion specially refined “Soul Refining Swords” for protection.

“Even Astral Tools cannot compare to these Flying Swords.” One disciple complacently said.

“This is thanks to Junior Brother Jiang Shiyu. Otherwise, how could we have the sect’s secret Flying Sword. The Soul Refining Swords are so powerful, I wonder how powerful the Headmaster’s inheritance, the ‘Flying Soul Scattered Spirit Sword,’2 that Junior Brother Jiang Shiyu obtained is.”

“However, it still cannot compare to Devil Star Palace’s Great Saint Starkiller!”

“Do you feel that Master will actually move out with full force for this Black Turtle Temple.”

“Of course. The Fiend Soul Sect is a Four Great Devil Sect, and Junior Brother Jiang Shiyu is a Star Master. This Black Turtle Temple’s Good Fortune Pill, Master is even relying on him. I hear if he does not take a few back, heh, heh, Junior Brother will suffer.”

The two laughed as they rejoice in his impending misfortune.

“Truly, he is a pitiable Junior Brother, to surprisingly have to contend against Great Saint Starkiller.”

“Who let him be a Star Master.”

“Shall we help him when the time comes?”

“Heh, heh, save yourself first.”

“Reasonable.”

“However, with this Soul Refining Flying Sword, we can still outrun what we cannot outfight.” The man self-confidently said.

“Where is the Spring Breeze Drunken Rain Pavilion?”

The two were currently lost in their chat. This sudden sentence entered their ears and scared them into nearly shouting out loud.

Lifting their heads to look, an exceedingly refined and cute little girl was currently staring at them. She appeared young and tender, but her expression nevertheless emitted a kind of pressure that made the pair incapable of drawing breath.

Supervoid Cultivator???

“Run!”

Without another thought, the two Fiend Soul Sect disciples fled a thousand meters away on the riding swords. They were considerably confident that with this absolute Flying Sword, they could run away without any problems.

Gongsun Huang blinked. Her feet tread on clouds, and she nimbly flashed by.

“That girl is so small, could she be the legendary Dragon in the Clouds?”

“We must inform the Headmaster that the Dragon in the Clouds has come.”

“However, why was she asking about the Spring Breeze Drunken Rain Pavilion. Could it be…”

“Run first.”

In the blink of an eye, they pierced a hundred li through the clouds.

All of a sudden, a figure descended and blocked their way.

“Huh?”

The two disciples were frightened enough their souls flew and their spirits scattered. They did not expect the speed of the girl’s Wandering The Clear Skies would be much fiercer than the Soul Refining Flying Swords.

Gongsun Huang’s Innate Skill naturally could not be compared with a Flying Sword. She extended a hand and pointed. A whirlwind trapped the two. “Where is the Spring Breeze Drunken Rain Pavilion?” Gongsun Huang’s voice was spotless.

“The Spring Breeze Drunken Rain Pavilion is at Eastern Mountain island. Go east one thousand three hundred li, and you can see it.”

The two disciples promptly said.

“En.”

Gongsun Huang’s figure vanished.

The pressure on the two diminished. Each looked at the other in shock. Before they could breathe a sigh of relief, suddenly, they head “You should not have stirred evil ideas just now.”

The gale surrounding them roared like a dragon. The two of them screamed, and their silhouettes immediately disappeared completely, not leaving even the slightest trace. Those Soul Refining Flying Swords became master-less soul-lights that fled.

Gongsun Huang reappeared where she was. Gazing at the Flying Swords flying away, she cocked her head as if she was thinking. Then, without uttering a word, she turned and flew towards Eastern Mountain Island.

  1. Thanks for the chapter!
    “Continuously using dan fire to smelt it, it was possible to turn it into materials to refine Flying Swords, however, even if it was one of Liangshan Continent’s tool refinement sect master, perhaps Ju Yuqke could only reduce the time by only a half.”
    Ju Yuqke -> Ju Yuike, if remember correctly

    Unexpected trouble for Su Xing. Like usual:)

  2. 1. [“En, I feel the same way. However, greed is always better than you Sisters slaughtering each other.” Su Xing shook his head, sorrowful.]
    This is actually a recurring regret with Su Xing. The man absolutely HATES the Star Duels with a fiery passion for that sole reason. He’s vo8ced his thoughts on this quite a few times in earlier chapters too. It lies at the root of why he wanrs to permanently end the seemingly eternal 108 year cycle of Sister killing Sister that’s persisted for a millenia.
    2. I get where Hu Niangzi is coming from, but if she does go through with what she intends, she’d only be spitting in Su Xing’s face and disgracing the goodwill he has for her. I really hope she changes her mind… cuz no way in hell would Su Xing or anyone rlse allow her to conveniently let her commit suicide just cuz her beef is over with.
    …It’d be one thing if she did it by herself, but she didn’t. Call it ego or arrogance, but you lose the right to take your own life the moment you leave your fate in the hands of another to get your revenge. I couldn’t give a rat’s ass how bad you feel or how heartbroken you are. A bitch move is a bitch move.
    …I’m actually kinda mad at Hu Niangzi for having those thoughts tbh…
    I really hopes she changes her mind…
    3. Gongsun Huang is a fucking BEAST! Little Candy, here we come!!!!

    1. 1 I find Su Xing behaviour and feelings as extreme hipocrisy as he and his harem made the most Starfalls up to date. Especially that Lin Chong and Wu Song before (and in earlier incarnations) getting in contact with Su Xing left beaten Sisters alive (until last phase) and now they are more ruthless.

      2 It is always funny for me when I read comments on web that forgives, cheer on and accept everything the MC does but find fault when others, especially antagonists are in any way hostile to MC or behave similary to MC then the web citizens bash them or curse on them.
      Funny indeed.

      1. 1. You can call Su Xing a hypocrite if you like, but he never once ordered or even went out of his way to kill a Star General. The most he himself has done is barely fight to a draw, and 9 times out of 10, it was the ‘other party’ that initiated hostilities each and every time.

        Can you seriously name an instance contrary to that in over 400 chapters? He’s only been outright hostile towards ‘to other Star Masters’ and sects more than anyone else.
        Where’s the hypocrisy in defending yourself when struck first!?
        The man never claimed to be a pacifist, nor did he claim that he wouldn’t kill.
        He avoids killing when he has to, but he hasn’t done shit worth you calling him a hypocrite for.

        You can’t lay what his Star Generals do at his feet when it was their choice to kill who they killed. Su Xing had nothing to do with it aside from their desire t9 protect his life, a sentiment he’s risked extreme bodily harm to repay to the point of restlessness.
        He’s no saint, but he’s FAR from a hypocrite. Have you actually been reading this WN?

        2. Hu Niangzi isn’t an antagonist. Do you even get what actually bothers me about her words and thoughts? Do you ACTUALLY understand why I might have a problem with what she intends to do if she gets her revenge, or did you just wanna rant?

        You’re entitled to believe what you want, but at least know what the hell you’re talking about before you spew your nonsense.

        3. I’m not defending anyone. Su Xing is a decent main character. He’s got his flaws, but he never once acts like half the assholes he’s had to fight.

        If you’ve got evidence to the contrary, please… do share. Otherwise, sod off.

      2. Of course his harem has caused the most to date, but that’s not a fair metric to use. If you really wanted to measure the lethality of team Su Xing, you’d have to average across all his Star Generals (comes out to less than 2 Starfalls each). Then, Su Xing doesn’t look so bad at all. Holy Lord of Draconic Demon and Great Saint Starkiller are far more bloodthirsty compared to Su Xing.

        Besides, Su Xing already makes clear that he’d take no issue with people unless they came after him first.

      3. 1) Honestly, your criticism, more than annoying, is extremely boring and pathetic for me. At what point have you seen Su Xing affirming a fact about himself only to later contradict himself? Neither Su Xing nor his harem have decidedly sought a star master and his star maiden to kill them and in cases where they ended up in a confrontation, they were provoked and when they eliminated their enemies, they did it quickly and efficiently, without wasting time in humiliating them. , like a true soldier in a real war. That alone already puts him in a superior moral position compared to most other star masters. Also, as Lyner said, when Su Xing has claimed to be a pacifist or has he proclaimed that he would not kill? Prastically he made fun of Lu Shaqing when she tried to implode him to kill his enemies. Remember that he is a SOLDIER, so he is prepared to kill when required. The reason for his hatred for Star Duel is understandable, which soldier loves war? I am sure that Su Xing discrikes the wars, but is not afraid to fight for what he loves and do it with more honor and common sense than most of the protagonists that I have seen, be it animes, manga and novels, and so far I can say that What I like most is doing it without being a hypocrite! Also, how many opportunities has Su Xing had to finish off a star master or star maiden who could well pose a mortal threat to him or his harem in the future but decided to give a hand in good faith and be generously reciprocated?
        2) Honestly, how many of the true antagonists of this novel have we seen that have some redeeming or even admirable quality? I do not remember any, although I consider Zhao Hanyan and Dong Junqing more as persistent annoyances on the part of the author than true antagonists. Now, Lyner is expressing that he would be disappointed that Hu Niangzi (not even an antagonist for your information Mikss) gave up her life after concluding her revenge, which is certainly selfish and arrogant on her part since she is taking it for granted that she means nothing to Su Xing and he would not cry for her death, an opinion that I share witch Lyner.
        4) As Lyner said, if you go criticize a story, expose your evidence and arguments, not only say what you think as if it were the absolute truth that everyone should hear, it is very arrogant and pathetic on your part … sigh
        5) So as you say you enjoy people despise the vices of an antagonist and ignore that the protagonist may or may not share, I find people like you who write their criticisms senseless and without bothering to seem to read the novels that criticize just to express their dissatisfaction with a well-built character that they just do not like. In my opinion, all your criticism is based on that you do not like Su Xing or your harem, in which case, why do you see the novels in the first place?
        6) Lyner, you do not have to worry about Hu Niangzi, I’ll give you a little spoiler, something important will happen in chapter 411 that will seal the relationship between Su Xing and Hu Niangzi. What it is and how things will be then you will have to wait and see for yourself.
