Chapter 56: The heart to be wary mustn’t be missing


Along the way.


Zhao Yaya suddenly asked, “Shuhang, I don’t seem to remember having met those two guys when I sent you here at the start of school, right? How did they know about me?”


Song Shuhang blinked at her, “Hahaha, I think they probably heard Tubo and the others mention you, then utilized their own means to obtain a photo of you, I guess.”


“You’re lying, that sounds too fake.” Zhao Yaya snorted, “From their talk, it was obvious that they had met your ‘elder sister’ not long ago. Furthermore, when you introduced me, the other guy seemed to be very surprised, like it was the first time he had seen me. Therefore… spill the beans, is the person those two boys were referring to your girlfriend? Could it be that she’s older than you, so you feel embarrassed to introduce her to me?”


Zhao Yaya was still as honest and straightforward as ever, she was like a detective mercilessly exposing Song Shuhang’s lies.


“There’s no such thing, that person truly wasn’t my girlfriend, you have to believe me, jie.” Song Shuhang seriously replied right away.


“Yep, that’s the truth. However… you indeed have had an ‘elder sister’ accompany you out of the men’s dormitory a while ago?” Zhao Yaya squinted her eyes, “How about it, have you considered going beyond just friends? Older female younger male relationships are pretty good now. Besides, if you get married, a slightly older woman would be able to take better care of you. I believe that Aunt and Uncle wouldn’t object.”


How hateful, she easily inferred that out. Song Shuhang was dispirited. Moreover, why does having a girlfriend have to be linked with marriage? Can’t there just be a pure boyfriend-girlfriend relationship between college students? Does it have to be linked with a topic as heavy as marriage?


“Alright, I’ll stop teasing you, but if you do find a girlfriend, you must inform me. I’m leaving now.” Zhao Yaya forcefully patted Shuhang, then quickly walked up to hail a taxi, and left with a smile.


Song Shuhang waved while feeling relieved in his heart.


He honestly couldn’t lie in front of Zhao Yaya, because she was too familiar with him, any lie he made would be easily seen through by her.


Luckily, she didn’t manage to make out any relation between him and ‘cultivation’. It should be normal though, since something like ‘cultivation’ was merely a beautiful product of fantasy to ordinary people. In normal circumstances, nobody would link reality with cultivation.


Either way, before I decide to be honest about ‘cultivation’ with her, I have to keep this a secret, and not give her any clues, so as to avoid anything disastrous happening to my family. Song Shuhang inwardly thought.


North River’s Loose Practitioner had warned him of this before, he didn’t dare to jeopardize his family’s lives.


When he thought of this, he once again thought about the person investigating him in the background.


There mustn’t be the heart to harm someone, but the heart to be wary mustn’t be missing!





6PM in the evening.


At the house Yangde rented.


When Song Shuhang made it, Tubo and Gao Moumou were already drunk. The two hugged each other, while Gao Moumou occasionally wept, he still seemed to be traumatized.


On the other hand, Lin Tubo loudly consoled him while patting his chest making guarantees.


The two were definitely speaking Chinese, but Shuhang couldn’t understand a single word, god knows how these two drunkards converse?


Li Yangde wore a forced smile, and immediately asked after opening the door for Shuhang, “Shuhang, do you know what happened to Gao Moumou? He was more dead than alive the moment he arrived, and immediately drowned himself and Tubo with alcohol. A while after he started drinking he began to say things like ‘I have been tainted’, ‘I am unclean’, ‘I want to die’ and other baffling words. To be honest… it’s scary to hear a grown man like him shout out something like ‘I am tainted’.


“It just so happens that I know precisely what’s going on!” Song Shuhang laughed out loud.


Song Shuhang explained what happened earlier in the dormitory to Li Yangde in detail, but held back the part where Zhuge Yue said someone was investigating him, of course. Song Shuhang didn’t want to drag his three roommates into unknown dangers.


When Li Yangde heard the full story, he had the expression of not knowing whether to laugh or to cry.


“Speaking of Zhuge Yue, I seem to have an impression. That person must be the school’s news department’s core member. As for that person’s gender, it should be female, right?” Li Yangde pondered while pinching his chin. As he once had the ‘need’ for some information, he hacked into the school’s news department’s to check, and gained some understanding of their core members.


“But when I asked Gao Moumou whether that person is a male earlier, this fellow’s face turned strangely pale, and he shook his head in a depressed manner. Then I asked, is it a girl? His expression turned for the worse, but he still shook his head in grief. I then asked him, is it an intersex or transvestite, and he cried while saying ‘no’. He said that these are things I won’t understand.” Shuhang said.


“Then there’s only one possibility left…… that person is a transsexual?” Li Yangde hypothesized.


“As you say, that seems to be the only other possibility?” Song Shuhang nodded.


The two turned to look at Gao Moumou with pity-filled eyes.


Yangde, “Shall we let Old Gao get totally drunk tonight?”


Song Shuhang nodded, “We should.”


The roommates originally wanted to have a meal outside this night, but Gao Moumou’s half dead appearance would just be shameful to bring out. So Li Yangde wisely called for delivery to go along with the drinks.


Tubo and Gao Moumou kept drinking, and didn’t eat much. The two were already close to complete intoxication, and almost laying down like corpses.


Song Shuhang and Li Yangde sat down, happily enjoying their sumptuous dinner.


“By the way, Yangde, there’s going to be a sports event in our school? Why haven’t I heard of it?” Song Shuhang inquired.


“Of course you wouldn’t know… because our class was only notified this afternoon. At that time, you were already dragged away by that strange friend of yours.” Li Yangde replied, then he revealed a profound smile, “Oh yes, Shuhang, when you weren’t present in class during the afternoon, a female student named Lu Fei specially came to us to ask about you.”


“Huh?” Song Shuhang was stunned, he didn’t know how to react.


That lady named Lu Fei? All that happened between them is she moving closer to him during a few classes, right? Furthermore, he had never spoken a single word to that person, how should Shuhang be expected to react?


“Haha.” Li Yangde laughed, then said, “Also… something interesting happened for the registration for the sports event. Let me tell you in detail, it’s said that for the this event, there would be a hurtful 5km run for men, and it’s the incredibly tiring type. There’s no one in our class who was willing to participate. Therefore, after everybody pushed this duty all around, this duty fell onto the head of someone who wasn’t present. Let me give you a hint, this person’s surname is Song.”


“Can I use foul language?” Song Shuhang felt all of the veins on his forehead popping up. What a scheme, it’s 5km and it could kill!


How unfortunate!


Eh, wait. My brain didn’t seem to think clearly for a moment. If it was two days ago, perhaps I might really run to death, but now… a mere 5km, maybe it is just an insignificant number?


“Don’t bother cursing, nothing would change even if you curse. The name list for the sports event has already been submitted, on the 7th of June, you will obediently participate in the 5km run. When the time comes you have to go, even if you don’t someone will lift you over. You can do it! If you win, you’ll receive more course credits y’know?” Li Yangde sardonically smiled.


“Fine, it’s just a mere 5km. These additional course credits, this Song will definitely seize it.” Song Shuhang said in a heroic manner.


“That’s the spirit, cheers!” Li Yangde raised his cup.


“Cheers!” Suddenly, the intoxicated Lin Tubo laughed and raised his glass. It could be seen that his eyes were clear, how was he intoxicated at all?


Damn, this fellow was just deceiving Gao Moumou?


The pitiful Gao Moumou, he was already down. Who knows how many secrets this scoundrel Tubo made him spill when Tubo made him get drunk?


Song Shuhang raised his glass and laughed out loud, “Cheers.”


No matter whether it was for Zhao Yaya or these three scoundrels, he had to make preparations.

    Then I asked, is it a girl? His expression turned for the worse, but he still shook his head in grief. I then asked him, is it an intersex or transvestite, and he cried while saying ‘no’. He said that these are things I won’t understand.

    Moumou: “You cis normies will never comprehend the myriad of genders and the intricacies of the LGBT community, hmpth.
    Moumou can go suck a dick, “you won’t understand”. What a teasing shmuck.

  • Mesmerised

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Sircus

    You know I completely don’t buy the BS explanation to keep the cultivation secret to his family. They will know eventually when he doesn’t age O_O. Why didn’t he present a red vs blue pill to his elder sister where she can choose to go down the rabbit hole or keep living a normal life? With the sisters education, she seems like a perfect fit as an apprentice to the medicine master. She brings modern knowledge and the master represents the old know how.

    • Poulos maximus the great

      The thing about aging, is that it takes a really long time to be obvious. By then he would have long since decided to tell them or not to and leave. As for inducting her into cultivation, he simply decided that he himself is not already well grounded enough to begin supporting another person’s cultivation. And i doubt medicine master and co would be so generous as to give her, someone who is much older than Song who has passed his cultivating prime, much to grow with.

      • Sircus

        Yeah, I know what you mean. However you think to big. Even if the sister and his mother/father can never become immortal due to being to old, it´s not out of the question for the parents to gain another 100 years of life and the young sister 200-300 years. I think the medicine master would be happy to outsource all the orders of low lvl medicine to his apprentice. ^^

        • Poulos maximus the great

          That is a valid point. After all, not everybody is protected by plot armor, personally, if ended up in a xianxia world and wasn’t the protagonist, i’d probably just be content using my earth knowledge to become a rich mortal inventor.

        • GodTurtleOm

          Shuhang’s only been at this a few days, give him a few months…

          In this series, I think each major stage of cultivation adds 100 years longevity? There are things that add to lifespan that are suitable for even non-cultivators, so far in the story there have been 2 different substances that each add 50 years (as a onetime effect for each), one with a noticeable side effect, one without. I don’t know about medicines for non-cultivators to increase lifespan, but for general health there is the tea that Soft Feather mentioned before, and a type of rice. Most of the people in the Chat are Stages 5 or 6, and a few 7s. I don’t think any of them are entirely immortal.

        • Void

          That is what the MC is striving for. It does not need to happen immediately. Pill-master is going to make an apprentice out of the MC and teach him his the trade of creating pills for mortals. That much was stated by the story.
          There is no reason for the MC to run to his family at this very moment, as he has absolutely nothing to offer them.

    • Danis

      remember you not the author want mc to tell his family go write your own novel XD

      • Sircus

        No, what I was saying was that the MC is an idiot. Ofc you are free to like novels you identify with. Cant really help you, writing a moronic MC´s aint my thing. XD

        • Danis

          lets see if you are the MC :

          MC (You): hi mom dad and cousin i want to tell you all now im immortall practioner
          Father: son you …………………………crazy!!!!
          Mom: ohh dear you got us lets go to mental hospital together
          Cousin : ……………………………poor boy read To Much Xianxia Novel -_-

          • Sircus

            The MC can do easy stuff like stomp the floor and leave a deep footprint to prove cultivation. Also, families will grasp any proof if the alternative is that the son is crazy. You really should think much further then just the initial impression.

            • Danis

              Dad : wow son you strong did you using some kind of pill ?
              Mom : wow dear you so strong now lets go to hospital to take a look what kind of pill you eat !!!
              Cousin : ………………………….now i got pill addict bro -_-

              • Kuro Kishi

                As Turbo says Cheers!

            • GodTurtleOm

              Shuhang wants to ease his family into it, his parents first, then maybe his cousin and other relatives, if he has the resources for it. So his first goal is to secure his own place in the cultivation world, which is still rather tenuous. Shuhang has gotten a bit of help from others here and there, but not enough to turn his parents or cousin into cultivators, which would be far more difficult for them than for himself.

              Here’s some spoilers, in Shuhang’s next three months, he supplies his parents with the spirit rice (bought a massive amount) and spirit tea (supplied by Soft Feather) which is good for their health, and consumable even by non-cultivators. He also gives them something that adds 50 years to their lifespan the first time it is consumed by someone. He’s got a massive supply of that 50yr+ stuff, so he’ll probably give it to his cousin and any friends as well.

              So he’s setting himself up so that it would be hard for his family to NOT to believe him when he tells them about cultivation. His parents already find it strange that Shuhang suddenly has so many wealthy and attractive friends. At that point, he’ll probably give his parents the other 50yr lifespan-adding substance he has (in lesser amounts), since it has a notable side effect (a random magical ability).

            • Void

              Sircus. Let’s say he does reveal the fact that cultivation is a real thing, and his elder sis totally wants to cultivate for some unknown reason.
              How will he provide any of them with the resources to cultivate? Cultivation manuals, pills, ingredients, etc — they all cost a lot of favors, and right now, the MC can provide none of those things. He has no reason to run to his family.

    • shadowtrap2010

      … actualy i do buy it… since i barely talk to my relative the only one still alive and know iam around is my mom and bro… and my bro because i start living with him recently if not they dont even know im alive till they text me or call which come around once a month or year!! so yah i could totaly disapear and no one realy know!!
