Silavin: My friend used to by a gambling addict. Usually, he would return home at 4 in the morning on the weekdays, spending the nights in the usual den with smoke and alcohol. Even on the weekdays, after work, he would visit such dens. To him, the risk and excitement was something he lived for.

As one expects, gambling is a fool’s game, and he slowly ended up in debt. However, before his wallet became red, his wife pleaded him to stop. Naturally, he promised to do so, a lie. In just a mere three days, he returned to his old habits. This time, however, he did so more discreetly. Wearing a watch to when he went off, though sometimes forgetting to return on time. I mean, gambling is called an addiction for a reason right?

This carried on with the wife not muttering a word. A month, no two. She took it in silence. ‘There is no complaint. So, this matter must no longer be a problem in her eyes.’ he slowly lied to himself as the days passed, to truly believe in it.

Of course, he returned back to his old habits, and the wife continued to endure. It was one strange day, where he returned home earlier than usual due to a cancelled game with his friends that his heart broke.

He opened his metal door as per usual, even stepping close to the door but he heard a faint sob. He slowly turned the knob of his bedroom door to peek inside, finding his wife in a daze; eyes red, as droplets rolled down her cheeks. Her gaze was stuck at none other than a wedding photo placed on their desk.

His heart sank but he kept silent. ‘It’s all my fault’, he knew, yet, what could he do? He looked at the time and slowly closed the door again. He decided to return back home at the usual time, bidding his time at a eatery.

There, he order a simple cup coffee, but could not finish his drink. He too, sat there in a daze, as the scene of his wife replayed in his mind. A middle age woman who he had spent 12 years with, crying alone. Someone, who said nothing and bore with everything, She knew nagging would do nothing to convince him. She knew, that he would not stop regardless of what she did. So, she said nothing.

She was ready to bare everything for her husband and yet what was he doing?

Useless? Trash? all these describers were suited for him. Even he, himself cursed his uselessness. But mostly, he was ashamed of himself.

As time went on, he finally returned home with his eyes downcast. There, his heart sank even further as he saw his wife was snuggly tucked in bed, asleep as though nothing went wrong. There, he felt like crying. ‘She’s someone I don’t deserve.’

There, he shook his head and immediately took the majong case. Ashamed by his own actions, he went downstairs and threw the case into the rubbish compartment. As the case entered the void, so too did his addiction, as he never gambled again.

End

Not sure what you think about the story but I just want to point out how self-realization has the greatest impact and change on the person. Do I advise the wife to keep silent? I don’t know. I believe there are many different cases, but I do know if I was in his shoes, I would have done the same. Shame is one of a man’s weakness after all, it has been used by the Nazis during the white feather propaganda and many more of such events.

Anyways, hope you like story time. Took me like a 45 minutes to write everything out :X. Editors, please feel free to write your thoughts down on how you feel. I do also wish for tips or feedback on improving expressions and so on. Thanks.

Rosy: I like it but it’s too long Chapter 1321: Out the City

Jing Yuesha had no idea what Yi Yun was planning. So it surprised her when Yi Yun actually began to shop in Cloud Pool City.

Yi Yun went to various stores and looked at the merchandise very carefully. Every time, Yi Yun did not find anything of interest. All he did was shake his head gently.


Jing Yuesha could not help but ask, “Sect Master Yi, what do you want to buy?”

“I’m just browsing. Also… just call me Yi Yun.” Yi Yun laughed. He was deliberately teasing Jing Yuesha in the past. Now, he felt a little sorry for his actions.

“Okay…” Jing Yuesha nodded. “Young Master Yi, Master just said that if you do not leave tonight, it will be difficult to escape when you want to…”

“I know. Thank you for speaking up for me, Miss Yuesha,” Yi Yun said solemnly as he looked at Jing Yuesha. His sudden choice of words left Jing Yuesha a little embarrassed.

“Not that it did anything. Besides… it was all because of me that you quarreled with Princess Redjoy and exposed that recipe, making you a target of the Pillheart Sect…”

Yi Yun shook his head. “It has nothing to do with the pill recipe. I was bound to reveal my wealth when participating in the auction. The Pillheart Sect was only looking for an excuse. In fact, when the auction began, I went in fully expecting such an outcome.”

As Yi Yun spoke, he suddenly felt a minute fluctuation in the surrounding Heaven Earth Yuan Qi. It spread out and was gathering towards a particular direction.

Yi Yun turned to look in that direction. What he saw made him frown slightly.

He saw a gigantic cauldron flying slowly over from the horizon.

The cauldron flew very slowly but it carried an immense might. It made the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi throughout all of Cloud Pool City fluctuate slightly.

Yi Yun clearly recognized a familiar emblem carved on the cauldron. He had seen it before on Su Muyan and company’s chests.

It was the Pillheart Sect!

The cauldron was clearly a mobile abode in the form of a cauldron. And those within the cauldron were no doubt experts from the Pillheart Sect.

“How are they so fast?”

Upon seeing the cauldron, Jing Yuesha was stunned. She naturally recognized the emblem. Her master had surmised that more experts from the Pillheart Sect would rush over, but that it would take them at least a day. It was unexpected that the Pillheart Sect reacted so swiftly.

Yi Yun said, “The Heavenly South Peaks Meet is about to begin. Perhaps the members of the Pillheart Sect were already on the way here. Of course, they might have come early because of me.”

Yi Yun was very aware of the value of the divine alchemist’s heritage. To the Pillheart Sect, it was something it had to acquire at all costs.

“Boom!”

The cauldron landed on a mountain range outside the city. Its massive three feet crushed countless boulders and even the void trembled as a result.

Cloud Pool City’s warriors naturally noticed the Pillheart Sect’s cauldron. Although many large factions were participating in the Heavenly South Peaks Meet, most experts would choose to keep low profiles while entering Cloud Pool City. Few would be like Pillheart Sect, smashing down onto a mountain in plain view of Cloud Pool City with a massive cauldron.

“What an ostentatious display by the Pillheart Sect. I heard from my sect Elders that there was a fellow named Yi Yun at the auction who offended Su Boyang. That Yi Yun also has some long-lost heritage of the Pillheart Sect. Could this cauldron be here for Yi Yun?”

Warriors all around the city were discussing the matter. There were many participants at the auction so the news had long spread.

“It’s not that simple. Hehe. Look at that Yi Yun’s cultivation level. He’s not worth the Pillheart Sect’s efforts. The Pillheart Sect has raised such a rumpus not for Yi Yun but to scare all the other parties that might be eyeing Yi Yun. From the looks of it, the heritage that Yi Yun holds in hand is very important to the Pillheart Sect,” said an elder. People found what he said to make sense.

However, even if this was not known, no faction would have dared to snatch Yi Yun from the Pillheart Sect’s proverbial jaws anyway.

After all, the Pillheart Sect was a faction that went beyond the constraints of the Heavenly South Great World. It had many branches in other Great Worlds. Even the Outcloud Empire and Divine Empire of Thunder did not dare touch the Pillheart Sect.

“Young Master Yi, what can you do now?”

The Pillheart Sect was standing guard outside the city. It was now impossible for Yi Yun to exit the city. Jing Yuesha began to believe that Yi Yun was in danger even if he stayed inside Cloud Pool City. Perhaps, the Pillheart Sect would ignore Cloud Pool City’s rules and capture him once the Heavenly South Peaks Meet was over.

“Miss Yuesha, I plan on returning to the tavern. You should return and rest too,” said Yi Yun. The auction had taken up most of the day, so it was likely that Su Boyang had already called in the Pillheart Sect before it was over.

“But…”

Jing Yuesha did not finish her sentence. She was at a loss for words. It was already late into the night and since Yi Yun was planning on returning to the tavern, it was unbecoming of her to follow him.

“Alright then.” Jing Yuesha could only nod her head awkwardly.

With the Heavenly South Peaks Meet beginning, the Cloud Pool City’s taverns were mostly booked. Yi Yun and company had failed to find a tavern that could take them all in, so they found separate lodgings. Yi Yun stayed in Perilla Tavern which was a distance away from the tavern the Clear Lunar Island group stayed at.

Perilla Tavern was considered a mediocre tavern in Cloud Pool City. Typically, large factions that participated in the Heavenly South Peaks Meet would place a lot of emphasis on their reputation. They would reserve high-class inns well ahead of time and so did not need to even enter such taverns. They felt it would be undignified, but Yi Yun did not care about such things.

Yi Yun returned to Perilla Tavern alone and sat on the bed to meditate.

He spent more than forty hours meditating. More than two days and two nights had passed, and they passed by peacefully.

During these two days, Jing Yuesha would pass by Perilla Tavern, hoping to find Yi Yun. But when she came to the tavern, she learned that Yi Yun had placed a ‘do not disturb’ sign with the tavern’s owner. Jing Yuesha could only leave.

She felt it wasn’t right to knock on his door. Warriors spent most of their time meditating in cultivation. Knocking on the door suddenly would be rude. Furthermore, she would have nothing to say to Yi Yun if she did see him.

And so it was, when the sun set on the third night. The meditating Yi Yun suddenly opened his eyes and pushed open the window. Like a light dove, he flew out of Perilla Tavern.

Cloud Pool City did not have curfews and the city gates were never closed. People could leave the city at night but not enter.

Yi Yun was dressed in black and he kept his aura converged. Under the night sky, he appeared to fuse with the darkness itself. He was pretty much indistinguishable.

After Yi Yun made it out of the city, he began flying towards a valley.

The night was cold, with freezing winds inundating him. Yi Yun’s clothes fluttered but he remained calm. He was fast and, from afar, he could see faint shadows a distance away. They instantly vanished, seeming to melt into the world. Chapter 562: Imperial City of the Empire

“What?!” The words of this disciple caused the other disciples of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect to go pale.


The Sect Guarding Demon Beast of the Seven Star Sword Sect?


“Are you sure?” Many Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples looked towards the person that shouted out in shock.

“Of course! I was there on that day when the Seven Star Sword Sect was annihilated by our Azure Forest Tri-Sect, I’m absolutely not wrong!” The latter hurriedly nodded as his eyes emitted slight terror. “I still remember that Duan Ling Tian was saved by it that day… Its speed is something practically no one in our Azure Forest Tri-Sect is able to compare to!”

“Earlier, the three great Sect Leaders and the few Guardian Elders went to chase it, yet they didn’t even touch a feather on its back… Not only that, they even allowed it to kill so many of our fellow disciples.” The bodies of some of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples started to tremble lightly.

“I want to leave the sect… I don’t want to be an Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciple anymore!”

“I want to leave the sect as well!”



Instantly, the group of Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples within the gorge were stirred, and all of them wanted to leave the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.

As far as they were concerned, so long as they clearly cast aside their relationship with the Azure Forest Tri-Sect, they wouldn’t have to worry about that Roc coming to slaughter them anymore.

The speed of that Roc was something no one in the Azure Forest Tri-Sect could compare to.


In other words, it the Roc wanted to kill them, it would simply be as if it was walking into an unguarded place!

The commotion within the gorge caused the expression of the three great sect leaders to become grim.

They never expected that the surviving Roc of the Seven Star Sword Sect would actually cause such great panic amongst their Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples.

In next to no time, the three of them descended from the sky and went to reassure the disciples.

They could imagine that if they did nothing, it wouldn’t be long before only they and the group of elders would remain in the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.

Although their strengths were ordinary, these Azure Forest Tri-Sect disciples were to foundation and hope of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect.

The future of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect relied on these disciples.

If these disciples left completely, then the Azure Forest Tri-Sect would surely cease to exist in the next 100 years.

Because of the sudden attack of the Roc, the three great sect leaders of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect had completely tossed the agreement between them and Prince Sheng to the back of their minds.

Right now, their homes were burning, and they were busy putting out the fire.

How could they possibly have the mind to care about anything else?

Darkstone Empire.

Duan Ling Tian’s group flashed past in the sky above Phoenix Nest City.

Not long after, they arrived nearby the Inscription Formation that enveloped the former Soulcleanse Pool.

“Zhao Ming!” When Duan Ling Tian thought of the two old men that were trapped within the Inscription Formation, his face couldn’t help but sink, and his eyes revealed icy cold killing intent.

So long as he possessed sufficient strength, he would surely enter the Inscription Formation once again and cruelly kill Zhao Ming.

In the past, he didn’t know Zhao Ming’s actions when the Seven Star Sword Sect was annihilated.

So he didn’t utterly detest Zhao Ming so much.

But now, when he found out that Zhao Ming was the culprit of the deaths of Elder Xuan and the Sect Leader, Linghu Jin Hong, Duan Ling Tian wished for nothing more that to tear Zhao Ming into pieces!

“Those Azure Forest Tri-Sect members actually dared deceive me!” Prince Sheng who wore luxurious clothes had a livid expression.

He finally realized that it was impossible that the members of the Azure Forest Tri-Sect were coming.

Amongst Duan Ling Tian’s group, the strengths of the five young men were only ordinary, but Chi Ming and Prince Sheng were both existences at the Void Initiation Stage.

Especially Chi Ming, his cultivation was at the sixth level of the Void Initiation Stage and he even had a grade four spirit weapon to rely on.

So it was extremely peaceful all along the way.

For a martial artist at the Void Initiation Stage, heading to the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City from the Azure Forest Imperial Kingdom’s Imperial City couldn’t be considered to be far.

However, Chi Ming and Prince Sheng had to take care of the few young men.

So their group only arrived nearby the Darkstone Empire’s Imperial Kingdom after three months of time.

“The Darkstone Empire’s Imperial City is up ahead.” Chi Ming was the first to descend from the sky, and he looked down at a little black slot far in the distance.




Most importantly, this dude was from the Boundless World. If he was the Nan Bei Chao of Saint Origin World, he would have attacked the moment he saw Jiang Chen without saying a word.
