~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

With one of my hands, I firmly pressed his left hand onto the ground, while my other hand tried to snatch his Feng Ming Sword. I gathered all of my strength to bend his wrist, forcing him to thrust his sword into his chest.

Luo Ming Xuan was also using the last of his remaining strength to wrestle with me.

All of a sudden, I felt my heart panic, my heart stopped beating for a moment. I knew this feeling very well. This was the feeling I got every time my soul was about to leave Zhi Yan’s body. 

This would not do…

How could I fail at the very last moment.

However, the sense of leaving in my heart had already made me do my utmost to maintain this current deadlock with Luo Ming Xuan. I absolutely could not make the blade of the sword penetrate his chest!

I could not reconcile with this… I…

The corner of my eye flashed. Off to the side, I saw Liu Su Ruo who was laying on the ground suddenly crawl back up, holding her remaining female sword, gathering all the strength that she possessed to rush at my back.

Right at this moment, I was pressing Luo Ming Xuan’s body down, when suddenly, my heart came up with a plan. In the moment that she pierced forward with her sword, I released all of the strength in my body.

Just like a normal mortal who had never cultivated before, letting her sword directly impale my body and the tip of the sword entered into Luo Ming Xuan’s chest.

My blood followed the blade of her sword to fall into the center of Luo Ming Xuan’s heart, seeing Luo Ming Xuan’s complexion suddenly turn deathly pale, I softly chanted the seal incantation.


Hearing my voice, Liu Su Ruo suddenly went crazy, forgetting to even draw out her sword. She immediately sealed her ears and shouted: “No! No! Shut your mouth! This cannot be!”

She remembered it. Luo Ming Xuan remembered it even more. That year at their wedding, after I had chanted this incantation, I made Luo Ming Xuan fall into a deep eternal sleep. Every word, every phrase, every pause made Luo Ming Xuan’s body stiffened more and more. Until finally, his eyes closed completely. His breathing became faint as if he was fast asleep.

“Ah!” Liu Su Ruo screamed mournfully behind me, “Ah!”

She could not utter anything else, besides screaming as if she did not speak any other language.

While I bore her female sword, allowing her blade to penetrate through my cold heart, I sat on Luo Ming Xuan’s body and turned my head to look at Liu Su Ruo: “Alright, this farce is finished.”

It was her hand that had personally killed him.

Everything went back to how it was before.

Luo Ming Xuan continued his deep slumber, and Liu Su Ruo continued her madness. It was just that above the sky, among the clouds, a raging fire suddenly exploded, accompanied by the mournful shrill of the phoenix. The color of the sky was blood-red, but it was unknown whether it was due to being burned by the raging flames or being stained by the phoenix’s blood.

I looked up at the sky and immediately saw a person descending from heaven in blood and fire. Beside me, Liu Su Ruo’s ear-piercing screams faded away. Her aura was wiped out by the flames in the sky and she died on the spot.

I got up from Luo Ming Xuan’s body and stumbled towards Mo Qing.

A body of black and red clothes, against a sky full of falling fire, this appearance of mine was probably pretty similar to the malicious spirits in the legends. Otherwise, how could Mo Qing, who was so formidable that he could empty-handedly deep fry the phoenix, be so afraid to such an extent as this.


My entire eyes were bloodshot; my whole face was pale.


“Mo Qing.” I called out his name, stretched out my hand to caress his face, complaining to him: “Your Wan Jun Sword was really damnably disobedient.” I grasped his chin, and the blade that had passed through my chest pressed against his chest, “Not like you…”


I grasped his chin, pulled him down, and immediately kissed him.

Biting his ice-cold, quivering lips.


Not like you…

You treated me too well and too good. So well, that when it was time for me to leave, my heart hurt even more than when it was pierced by this sword at this very moment.


“My time is up.” I released him and took a step back, “Don’t you cry.”

Do not cry. I was already dead, so you do not need to be so sad…


In a split second, my heart failed and I could no longer control my body. As my soul left my body, I was suddenly pulled backwards. I could only see Mo Qing passing through my soul to pull that absolutely empty, collapsing body.

“Lu Zhao Yao!”


He called out my name again. He was terrified, helpless, at his wits’ end, just like a child. However, when he called out, that body appeared to shatter, turning into tiny specks of glowing blood like the flames falling from the sky. A “boom” sounded, it floated away and disappeared in midair, not knowing where it went.

“Lu Zhao Yao! You come back here!”

I turned my head to look at him, wanting to touch his body. However, right after that, my mind suddenly went dark, my consciousness disappeared and everything seemed to no longer exist…

  1. Finally, their hearts are connected. She now realized the pain that Mo Qing had when she left him . . .

  2. What a profound and heartfelt scene. Not only did Zhao Yao silence Luo Ming Xuan but she finally had a moment to connect with MoQing. She described parting with him being more powerful than the pain from being stabbed. She is recognizing the intensity of her feelings for him. My heart goes out to MoQing… he finally got her back and he has lost her again. The anguish!

    Thank you for another awesome translation.

  3. My heart hurts for both of them. I thought I was prepared for the unavoidable seperation, but this scene turned out to be more emotional than I had thought. This is just too tragic, Lu Zhao Yao is finally reciprocating Mo Qing’s feelings and he gets everything he wanted only for them to be torn apart for what could be forever.
    Thankfully we know this is not the end.
    I am happily waiting for my favorite part of the tv series to come along.
    Thank you for updating three times this week, we really appreciate it!!!

      1. Exactly, but also the episodes leading up to the reunion. Watching Zhao Yao so determined to go back to Mo Qing was the best thing hands down. Because up until that point it was Mo Qing who was making all the sacrifices and the grand gestures.
        And I can’t lie, her reaction to their illicit night together was pretty hilarious…
