Ostentatious Zhao Yao ~ Ch 45.02

Hello dear readers!

I hope everyone is doing well, being safe and healthy out there in the world.

I wanted to post this section last night, but sadly as I was getting ready to post, my computer crashed! I was SO PISSED! So, I went to sleep instead. Anyways, my computer’s been crashing in the last month, so I guess I need to get a new computer soon.

Well, here’s another one for your reading enjoyment!

This one is about our other favorite crazy girl, Shi Qi!

He was like a child waiting to be given candy, anxiously staring at me. In his presence, I somewhat did not have the heart to throw that candy on the ground.

With a sigh in my mind, I admitted my own defeat in my heart.

“Mhm, worried about you.”

Mo Qing’s eyes uncomplicatedly lit up, but his eyes also appeared as if it did not expect me to frankly say these words. He froze momentarily, and then  unexpectedly shifted his gaze far, far away into the distance, coughing once: “Mhm.”

[Mhm? There is only one ‘mhm?’]

[Ugly Little Monster, you are such a bashful child who cannot follow along with the mind of another.]

In the courtyard, there was a moment of silence. Then Mo Qing opened his mouth again: “Tomorrow, I won’t need to go to Xian Tai Mountain in person, East Mountain Lord has already returned from the Immortal Island overseas. She’ll go handle it.”


“East… Mountain Lord?”

I was stunned. Mo Qing was actually going to send that crazy lass? However, after thinking about it, if he wanted to sabotage other people’s matter, then sending Xu Zhi to do it was the most appropriate.

I understood what this lass’ temperament was like better than anyone else. She was the type of person whose derriere was always pricked by needles, and  absolutely could not be still with a temper like a stray wild dog. In the past, there were moments when she got carried away on a whim, she would carry me into public places with numerous people and go around screaming loudly that she really likes the Sect Leader…

In my Wan Lu Sect there were four mountain lords. So to break them down carefully; North Mountain Lord was loyal to me, but even though there was a difference between master and subordinate, he and I were able to get along politely. South Mountain Lord, Gu Han Guang, simply treated me coldly and indifferently; in any case, I could only see him when I sustained injuries. Sima Rong was close to me, and was my most capable assistant. Only this East Mountain Lord, Xu Zhi… 

Every year, the merits that she made and the disasters that she caused were about the same. It was not that she did not listen to me, but it was that she listened to me too much. As a result, she would use too much force, unable to restrain the assault. When I had her go kill a certain sect’s leader, she would pulverize all the roof tiles of the other sect’s houses.


Xu Zhi’s original name was Shi Qi. During that year when I annexed a big demonic sect, Xue Sha Sect, I happened to scoop her out from the dungeon. At that time, she was still young, who looked about five or six years old. She was wearing Xue Sha Sect’s disciple’s clothes, and marked on her chest were two characters, shi and qi, just like a serial number. However, only when ‘shi qi’ was called out, would she then immediately respond with a very fragile sound. Therefore, Shi Qi was also her name.

* shi – ten

* qi – seven

* shi qi – seventeen

When I took her out of Xue Sha Sect, swirling everywhere in the spring sky were the cottony catkins of the willow trees, so then I immediately gave her the nickname — Xu Zhi.

However, I wasted my breath when I chose to give her such a soft-like name. Within this lass’ body, there was only brute force; it was unclear what medicine Xue Sha Sect had fed her when she was just a child that made her strength so great that it was scary. When I practiced with her, she could still lift me up from the ground, even when I employed the Thousand Catty Weight Stance. When magic was used to push her away, it was unable to do so — Because magic basically had no effect on her at all.

She was also the only person that I knew who could pull other people out when they were using the Instantaneous Travel Technique, press them down into the ground, and beat them up. 

In the beginning, when I took her back to Wan Lu Sect, I had intended to raise her from childhood to adulthood as a personal servant girl. Later, I realized that this lass was really too clumsy. She was faster in tearing someone up than telling her to wipe the table. Therefore, I simply gave her the position of the East Mountain Lord. So whenever there was a disobedient person in the demonic path, I would let her take care of it; I certainly was rest assured. 

I asked Mo Qing: “I haven’t seen East Mountain Lord before, so did she actually go overseas to the Immortal Island?”

“Mhm.” Mo Qing said, “Five years ago, the Sect Leader died in the battle at the Sword Tomb. She cried continuously for half a month, day and night without rest. Seeing that she was about to cry herself blind, Sima Rong immediately deceived her. Saying that overseas on the Immortal Island, there’s an immortal herb that can make people rise from the dead. Originally, the plan was to let her take it easy and slowly accept the truth… But didn’t expect that from that moment on, she’s been looking up until now.”

I grimaced. I knew that this lass’ temperament was very stubborn, but I really did not expect that she would be so broken-hearted because of me.

Obviously in my impression, the way that I had treated her… Was really not all that well.

“So is East Mountain Lord back now?” I asked Mo Qing.

“A short time ago, I sent someone to bring her back.”

“She’s willing to return?”
