Today’s Weather Isn’t Too Bad

What Ling Chen had just described was his past. Of course, Tian Ya was Ling Chen; Ling Chen was Tian Ya, or Number 1353. The family group that he had referred to was the Long family… only the Long family had the right to be called the most powerful family group in China. These were all blindingly obvious things that Shui Ruo understood.

Everything that happened after, Shui Ruo already knew- after all, the girl who had woken him in Zhong Zhou was her. The first time she had met him, he was wearing black clothes, lying on the unbelievably hot ground. There were many people walking past, but not a single person took notice of him. On the way home, she saw him lying on the ground, and hurriedly went to wake him up… because her father was a doctor, he had always taught her to be kind to others, and that she should do what she can to help those in need. She woke Ling Chen up, and saw an extremely pale face. He wasn’t completely awake, and definitely could not walk by himself. As such, she, her father and her mother took him home and looked after him. When they asked him about his past, he said that he wanted to forget it, and did not want to talk about it. When they asked him where his home was, he said he did not have one. When they asked him what his name was, all he said was ‘Chen’, meaning ‘dust’- he said that he was just like a speck of dust, blown by the wind, without anywhere to go.

As such, Shui Ruo exclaimed, “Then how about this will be big brother’s home? I’ve always wanted a big brother!”

Her father and mother smiled, but being mature adults, they thought this wouldn’t be too good. However, because they loved their daughter dearly, they only smiled, but did not say anything. At that time, Ling Chen’s body and mind had both taken much damage. Shui Ruo was like an angel who had saved him; her voice, her smile all caused his frozen heart to grow warm… he, who had always been rejected by, and always rejected other people,  could only nod his head.

As such, he became Shui Ruo’s big brother and stayed with the family. He had a father, mother, little sister… he had a family. This was the first time he had ever had a real family. In that family, he finally understood what family love was, which caused him to gradually forget about the pain and hatred in his heart. He even wanted to forget everything that happened in the past, and forever stay in this family, protecting Shui Ruo and her parents. How wonderful would that be…

It was a pity that the heavens only allowed him to live this sort of peaceful, carefree life for three years. After three years, the father, who frequently came into contact with patients with Isrock Disease contracted the disease, and also passed it on to the mother and Shui Ruo. Only Ling Chen… who had a monstrous body that could not get sick, did not become infected. He decided to take care of this entire family by himself. After one year, the father and mother both passed away. In his life, there was only Shui Ruo left. In order to cure Shui Ruo, he went to countless places, looking for different ways to cure the disease. He even sent people all over the world to find the Mad Scientist who had disappeared… because he could easily cure the Isrock Disease. However, after three years passed, he had made no progress. That was until they had come to Beijing, and met Yun Feng.

“Big brother… why… why didn’t you tell me all this earlier.” Ling Shui Ruo tightly hugged him as she sobbed. When she had first met him, she never knew that he had such a tragic past. At this moment, she finally knew that his past wasn’t just tragic. He had suffered unimaginable pain and agony, something other people could not even imagine. Losing his mother when he was born, growing up in a bitter environment, being cruelly harmed by others, being buried alive, struggling to survive in the terrifying ‘Heaven’ and ‘Hell’, then finding out that his most loved person had died… those years, he had suffered much anguish and torment… Shui Ruo’s heart hurt as if it had been shredded; the feeling in her heart was much more painful than even that from the Isrock Disease. She pressed herself against him, and could not even speak as she sobbed… as her vision clouded, she could almost see her big brother in those scenes, desperately struggling against the pain in his heart, as the hatred and bitterness devoured him… she hated fate for being so cruel to him; hated that family group for doing such a thing to him; hated herself… for not being able to help him…

“Haha!” Ling Chen laughed, and used his fingers to brush away Shui Ruo’s stream of tears. He said in a comforting voice, “Don’t cry, Ruo Ruo, these things all happened long ago in the past. Fate already gave me compensation for all that… by putting Ruo Ruo by my side. Being able to meet Ruo Ruo, I’m able to forgive god who put all those other things in my life. Because if it wasn’t for those things, I never would have met Ruo Ruo, and neither would I have the power to protect Ruo Ruo. After meeting Ruo Ruo, I’ve been trying to forget about those things, and planned to never think of them again. I never thought that I’d talk about them again today, and even cause my Ruo Ruo to cry so much. Okay, Ruo Ruo, don’t cry; if you keep crying, my heart will really break.”

“Big brother… big brother… I… I… wuu….” Shui Ruo was crying so hard that she couldn’t speak. Even though everything was in the past, but her heart still hurt so much; so much that she almost couldn’t breathe.

“Whew…” Ling Chen let out a breath, and stroked Shui Ruo’s hair, waiting for her to calm down. After being with Shui Ruo, he really did try to forget about the past, and sealed Dia Wu away in his memories. He didn’t even think of the hatred in his heart- as long as he had Shui Ruo, nothing else mattered. When Shui Ruo contracted the Isrock Disease, he felt as if his whole world was collapsing, so to him, he would be willing to pay any price for her to become well again… as for the hatred, he didn’t have the time or energy for that.

However, with Shui Ruo now healthy again, his heart was no longer heavily burdened. Upon entering the Mystic Moon world, he had heard of the surname “Long”… and just like that, a small tongue of fire began to burn within Ling Chen’s heart, igniting the hatred inside. As such, he started to plan how to take revenge against the Long family.

Am I being a bit too greedy? I know that doing such a thing could disturb Ruo Ruo and my peaceful life together…

The hatred that had kept him alive after being buried alive for two days; the hatred that had supported him in those three years in ‘Heaven’- how could it be so easily forgotten? The hatred that he had been trying to suppress and forget had not been forgotten at all. Rather, it had been sleeping like a dormant monster in his heart- the slightest stimulation would cause it to awaken, unable to be contained.

After a while, Shui Ruo finally began to calm down. She tightly hugged Ling Chen, wanting to be able to protect him… she blinked the tears out of her eyes as she sobbed, “Big brother, you still haven’t told me… why you suddenly became upset… is it because… you thought of those things… from the past?”

Ling Chen had told Shui Ruo everything, and he didn’t want to hide anything from this girl who he wanted to be with forever, “Because… because the Sword Emperor… She might be Dia Wu…”

“Ah!” Shui Ruo let out a cry of surprise, as her eyes widened in shock and surprise

Ling Chen slowly said, “Earlier when we fought, when our bodies touched, I accidentally found out that she is a woman… and that last sword technique she used… that sword technique was exactly the same as the one I created with Dia Wu… that sword technique let Dia Wu slash out many illusory blades while in the air, making her seem like a butterfly. It was very beautiful to look at, but it wasn’t much more than that- it was much weaker than the thirty six sword techniques passed down from her family group. We called that sword skill ‘Heaven’s Edge, Butterfly’s Dance’ (Tian Ya Dia Wu). Back then, Dia Wu would often show me that skill, to let me appreciate the beauty of it… the skill that the Sword Emperor used was almost exactly the same as Dia Wu’s, but with one difference- the Heaven’s Edge, Butterfly’s Dance of that year was incomparably beautiful, whereas the one the Sword Emperor used was unimaginably powerful, just like a proper sword skill.”

“She… she’s really… but… didn’t she… already…” In her shock, Shui Ruo forgot about crying, as her heart rate suddenly sped up.

Ling Chen shook his head, “I don’t know if it’s her or not. Perhaps the sword skill was just similar, or maybe Dia Wu taught that skill, Heaven’s Edge, Butterfly’s Dance, to someone else… maybe I’m just thinking too much…”

“No… definitely not! That was something that only belonged to you two, how can she teach it to someone else.” Shui Ruo vigorously shook her head, “Big brother, at the time, why didn’t you… why didn’t you call her name; why didn’t you tell her who you were… that way, you would’ve know if she was big sister Dia Wu…”

“I… couldn’t…” Ling Chen bitterly shook his head, “The Dia Wu in my heart already died 13 years ago. After suddenly finding out that she might still be alive, and might even be right in front of me, my emotions spun out of control. I didn’t dare to call out her name, because if she wasn’t Dia Wu, I would once again have to suffer that pain, but if it was her… if it really was… I wouldn’t know what to do…”

Shui Ruo’s eyes became clouded again. Of course, she knew what Ling Chen meant by that he wouldn’t know what to do, “… Is it because of me? Big brother’s worried that if she really was Dia Wu, you wouldn’t know how to face both of us, right?”

“Ruo Ruo, I said that I will be with you forever. Ruo Ruo will not leave me, and I will not leave Ruo Ruo.” Ling Chen softly said.

“Then, what if she’s really big sister Dia Wu? When big brother was abandoned by everyone, she was determined not to leave you, and was even willing to become your wife… from that night, big sister Dia Wu was already big brother’s wife, with the bright moon and stars as witnesses. If that really is big sister Dia Wu, how can big brother just abandon her, his own wife? She loved big brother so much, so I’m sure that she has always been waiting for big brother to come back, and has been waiting for many, many years.

Ling Chen: “……”

  1. Maaan the author really made this ‘short’ flash back boring af. So much info that was already obvious re-repeated over and over….

      1. If you know anything about the writing industry then you should know it doesn’t flourish with sweet words but instead with harsh criticism.
        If the author actually read my comment/criticism maybe in future novels he/she will try to avoid it. Whereas just appreciating the works gets the author nothing to work with.

        P.S if you’re talking about the translators then u read my comment wrong, my comment is for the author of the novel.

      2. no the guy is right, by making the flashback so long it lacked the emotional impact this scene could have had. It also would have been best if he emphasized his despair, with some creative imagery.

  2. Wait until he figures out that he is a Mars Gravity character and will forced to have a harem regardless of how he feels about them 😛
    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

  3. that really is complicated as fuck.
    a lover you thought died, you went through a time of pain and after a while you finally got over it and found a new love.
    after a while you find out that there is a possibility the love you thought you had lost was actually still alive.
    so ask yourselves this, what would you do?

    dam i really wouldnt know what to do lol.

  4. Meh, long rant:
    okay so currently i have only two more chapters to read before i catch up with this. I think what im about to say may have already been explained or at least brought up by the MC in the nxt twp chapters, but there is one detail i dont see any reader talking about. A very important detail: If this Sword Emperor is really Dia Wu, then she works for that fucker Long Tian Yun!

    Yeah, admittedly she might not know that it was him who made the MC contract the Isrock Virus but he still cant just explain away the fact that he destroyed the MC’s home and had him buried. I mean, yeah, she may not make the connection but fuck she cant be an idiot. She should understand exactly why the MC was a thorn in Long Tian Yun’s side and would ask some questions once she got older. Why would he sudenly contract the disease, why would he suddenly disappear? Who stands to gain something from it happening? You cant tell me she hasnt thought of the possibility right? I know Long Tian Yun was a “golden boy” who acts all benevolent, but come on, does she not bother to ask these type of questions. i get that she wouldnt think a young boy(which he was at that time) is capable of something like that, but even still…

    Maybe she has her reasons for protecting Long Tian Yun but dammit she’s working for the enemy. She is PROTECTING the guy who essentially TRIED TO KILL THE MC. No matter what the circumstances are, no matter whether she really doesnt know what he did(and somehow doesnt even suspect it), the fact of the matter is that she is part of a family who is supposed to be the protectors of Long Tian Yun’s family. She is by the side of the one who tried to kill off the MC

    And Im sure Lont Tian Yun knows that the Sword Emperor is from the XuanYuan Family since she uses their techniques. She might have faked her death, she might not have. Maybe it something else. At the very least people would question it if someone suddenly appeared using the techniques of the XuanYuan family so even if she did fake her death it cant be so simple as that, the XuanYuan Family and the Yun Family wont just quietly accept that there is someone using those techniques and not investigate it. So she still has to be a part of the XuanYuan Family.

    All the MC knows is that it might be her, and if it is then she is working for Long Tian Yun. And you cant say he wont feel betrayed by that. Even if he doesnt believe she knows what Long Tian Yun did to him, he would still be hurt by knowing that she “faked her death” and is working with that bastard even still. MC was hurt alot by that family and she is still working for them. That would really be all he knows at that point, and im betting he’ll be pretty confused and hurt by that.

  5. this shut ruo raised the harem flag by her self!! if ling chen didnt see that… oh well idk what to say.. x)

    I hope he’s gonna show his face to his guildies after this n explain everything if not shui ruo will explain to em secretly xD

    i can feel this shui ruo might do sumting dumb later xD like trying to save her fellow harem mate(dia wu) ahaha
