Chapter 60 – (Side Story Finale) Overcoming the Tribulation

       The injury on Erbao’s leg needs to be treated by removing the poison. Otherwise, his body will remain weak, and it will be difficult for him to recover fully.

       Everyone looked at Yun Po.

       Yun Po said, “What do you want me to do? Are you guys going to pay the bill?”

       Song Jun asked, “Does Master Yun Po have any solution?”

       Yun Po looked at Erbao’s wound again and said, “It’s not troublesome. Just take it back to Hongyin Temple and let my master help extract the poison. But it’s a demon, and it knocked over my car. Why should I help him.”

       Song Jun said, “Monk…”

       “Hey!” Yun Po interrupted him, “I’m not merciful, so shut up. Your family still hasn’t paid back the money you guys owe me.”

       Luo Fei said at this time, “Didn’t I help them pay it back?”

       Yun Po turned to Luo Fei and smiled, “Benefactor Luo is Benefactor Luo. He is different from these people. If it is your request, I will consider it.”

       Hearing this, Song Jun raised his hand and bumped Feng Junyuan.

       “?” Feng Junyuan was confused, “I have no money.”

       Song Jun whispered, “I’m not asking you to pay. I’m asking you to ask Luo Fei for help.”

       Feng Junyuan said, “Can I?”

       Song Jun nodded, “Go and try.”

       So Feng Junyuan walked to Luo Fei and pulled Luo Fei’s sleeve, “Mr. Luo.”

       Luo Fei turned to look at him, stretched out his hand to push the messy hair on his forehead to one side, and said with a smile, “What’s the matter?”

       Feng Junyuan said, “Can you let Master Yun Po save Erbao?”

       Luo Fei smiled and asked, “Why?”

       Feng Junyuan actually felt pity for Erbao. After all, they all watched Long Xing pick the dog up at that time. However, Feng Junyuan’s emotions were not as rich as those of Long Xing and Song Jun, and he didn’t feel any affection for Erbao.

       Seeing that Feng Junyuan didn’t speak, Luo Fei lured him and said, “If I save him, how will you thank me?”

       Feng Junyuan hesitated and turned to look at Xia Hongshen.

       Xia Hongshen had no intention of saving Erbao and said to Feng Junyuan, “Come back.”

       So Feng Junyuan stopped talking and went back to Xia Hongshen.

       Erbao lay on the ground and slowly closed his eyes at this time as if it didn’t matter whether his injury was treated or not; Long Xing didn’t want him anyway.

       Song Jun sighed, walked to the window and looked out.

       They were now on the second floor of the amusement park office building. It was very lively outside, with many demons gathered just to take a look at the legendary Firefly. And since they didn’t show up in the office building after a long time, the demons entertained themselves, and it turned into a carnival.

       Song Jun’s ears were filled with all kinds of happy music, and the rides in the amusement park began to operate.

       At this moment, a thunder exploded from the sky.

       Song Jun was slightly startled. He raised his head and looked into the distance. He saw that the sky in the distance was faintly white, and the thunder was followed by rolling thunder coming in this direction.

       Long Xing suddenly ran to Song Jun, looked out the window together, and then said, “Not good!”

       He returned to Erbao and asked anxiously, “Are you going through a tribulation1in some novels, a trial encountered by cultivators at key points in their cultivation, which they must resist and ultimately transcend. Because immortal cultivation (generally) goes against the Will of Heaven, the Heavens will send down tribulations to oppress high-level cultivators who make progress towards Immortality, often right when they enter a new cultivation stage. This typically takes the form of a lightning storm, with extraordinarily powerful bolts of lightning raining down from the Heavens to strike at the cultivator.?”

       Song Jun suddenly realised that he felt the thunder a bit strange, which made him slightly uneasy. Then he recalled that the current situation was very similar to that of Demon Zhen, who had overcome the tribulation and become immortal. This thunder was not an ordinary thunder.

       Sure enough, the thunder was getting closer and closer.

       Song Jun said, “Tell everyone to hide and avoid accidental injuries!”

       How could the little monsters outside be able to withstand the thunder tribulation of Firefly?

       Fortunately, this was the office building of an amusement park. Luo Fei immediately asked someone to make a broadcast, asking all the demons in the amusement park to find a place to hide and avoid being struck by the thunder.

       In an instant, the entire amusement park was in chaos.

       Yun Po said, “What should we do here? If it stays here, we will all suffer!”

       Xia Hongshen said, “Throw it out.”

       Erbao opened his eyes and said nothing. He glanced at Long Xing weakly, his eyes slightly moist.

       It was like it was about to die at that time, lying on the ground waiting for death, but Long Xing stayed and fed it a sip of water.

       Long Xing looked at it in a daze.

       Song Jun raised his hand and bumped Long Xing and said, “You don’t want to see it die, do you?”

       Long Xing shook his head, “But we can’t help it with its Heavenly Tribulation.”

       Song Jun said, “If you can’t help, someone can, as long as you are willing to beg Senior Brother Xia for it.”

       Long Xing hesitated.

       The thunder was getting closer and closer.

       Xia Hongshen suddenly walked up to Erbao, grabbed it by the back of the neck, and wanted to throw it out.

       Erbao didn’t struggle; just whimpered softly.

       Long Xing turned around and knelt down next to Xia Hongshen, grabbed the hem of Xia Hongshen’s clothes, and called out, “Master.”

       Xia Hongshen had a cold expression, clearly not very pleased.

       Long Xing held on to Xia Hongshen and secretly looked at Feng Junyuan and Xi Anling.

       Xi Anling curled her lips, walked over and knelt down with Long Xing, and said softly, “This dog is quite pitiful…”

       Feng Junyuan was the last one to come over and just knelt down after Long Xing without saying anything.

       Xia Hongshen glared at Song Jun.

       Song Jun smiled and said, “Save it.”

       Xia Hongshen said to Long Xing and others, “Go away all of you!” Then he threw Erbao away and reached out to Song Jun with one hand.

       Song Jun changed form in his hand, then Xia Hongshen held Chunjun, jumped out of the window and climbed to the top floor.

       Long Xing and Feng Junyuan jumped out immediately.

       Xi Anling chased to the window and shouted, “I’m not going! Be careful!” After saying that, she couldn’t help but worry as she looked out of the window. Then, she grabbed a frightened little squirrel by the wall and buried it in her chest.

       Luo Fei saw Feng Junyuan following him out, so he said, “I’ll help them,” and then followed him out.

       Wan Mingguang said to Yun Po, “Let’s go too!”

       Yun Po quickly grabbed him, “Why are you joining in the fun? Aren’t you afraid of being beaten to a pulp?”

       Wan Mingguang looked at the Erbao on the ground worriedly and said to Yun Po, “Then you save it first.”

       Yun Po was still a little unhappy.

       Wan Mingguang said, “Please, Master.”

       Yun Po said “Ay, ay, ay” a few times irritably and finally said, “Forget it, for your sake.” He squatted down and helped to treat the wound on Erbao’s leg.

       The demons in the entire amusement park had all scattered and hidden. After the bursts of thunder, there was still heavy rain in the sky, and then all the lightning and thunder concentrated on the office building, striking straight down.

       Xia Hongshen’s clothes were soaked through. He waved Chunjun, and a blast of thunder split open one after another. There were constant terrifying explosions all around.

       And Long Xing held the Gilded Phoenix Wings in his hand and leaned closely around Xia Hongshen.

       At this time, Luo Fei went up to the top floor and said to Long Xing, “Give me Fengliu, and you go and see the Firefly.”

       Long Xing hesitated for a moment and chose to hand the Gilded Phoenix Wings to Luo Fei, then turned around and went downstairs.

       Luo Fei waved his Gilded Phoenix Wings, caught a thunderbolt hitting his feet, and shattered it with demonic power.

       Xia Hongshen now had enough time to talk to Luo Fei, “What exactly is your true form?”

       The Chunjun and the Gilded Phoenix Wings in their hands immediately focused their attention, also wanting to know what the answer to this question was.

       Luo Fei smiled and asked, “Can’t you see?”

       Xia Hongshen said, “I can see it, but I don’t recognise it.”

       Don’t recognise it? Chunjun and Fengliu were both a little confused. Even Demon Zhen didn’t know what he was.

       However, as the thunder became stronger and stronger, the two people finally had no time to talk and began to concentrate on striking the thunder.

       Long Xing watched Yun Po treat Erbou’s wounds and asked, “Has its poison been removed?”

       Yun Po said, “There is no way to remove it cleanly here. You need to come with me to Hongyin Temple later.”

       Long Xing nodded.

       It took Yun Po some time to treat Erbao’s wounds. Long Xing heard the thunder outside gradually getting weaker. He knew that this thunderstorm had been overcome, and if he wanted to become immortal, he only had this chance.

       He picked up the Erbao and said to it, “I will send you to the top of the building. If you can become an immortal, this residual poison will be nothing to you.”

       However, Erbao shook his head.

       Long Xing said in surprise, “Are you going to let this opportunity go?”

       Erbao said, “I want to follow you.”

       Long Xing looked at it in a daze.

       By this time, the thunder had completely subsided, and the heavy rain had stopped.

       Xia Hongshen and Luo Fei came down from the top floor. They were soaked to the skin, and some wounds were faintly visible on their bodies.

       Long Xing once followed Xia Hongshen to overcome the tribulation and become immortal. He knew that it was not easy to overcome the tribulation. When he saw Xia Hongshen endure such a disaster because of his request, he suddenly felt uncomfortable in his heart. He walked to Xia Hongshen, hugged him and rubbed him.

       Xi Anling also grabbed Xia Hongshen’s hand as if she was frightened and shed a few tears.

       Xia Hongshen touched their heads and then said to Erbao, “You missed the opportunity to become an immortal.”

       Erbao didn’t seem to care. He opened his moist eyes and just looked at Long Xing.

       Later, Yun Po brought Erbao back to Hongyin Temple, and then there was no news about it.

       Two months later.

       Standing in front of the old dormitory building of Forensic Medicine College was a young man wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt and blue jeans. He had white hair on his head, but it had been cut short, making him look fresh and clean.

       The girls passing by couldn’t help but glance at him because he had a handsome face, but he looked a little dull. He kept wandering in front of the dormitory building, not daring to go in.

       Suddenly, a Maserati stopped on the side of the road. Luo Fei got out of the car and saw Erbao standing in front of the dormitory building.

       He asked, “Looking for Long Xing?”

       Erbao hesitated and didn’t speak.

       Luo Fei smiled and said to him, “Come in with me. Long Xing shouldn’t have gotten off work yet. He will be back later. Are you okay?”

       Erbao said, “Okay.”

       Luo Fei then said, “Let me treat you that night. Let’s go out to eat. I’ll call xiao Feng and ask him what he wants to eat…”


The author has something to say:

I suddenly realised that I seemed to have confused the mines of the two stories, but it doesn’t matter. I would like to express my thanks again.

The side stories end here. Mainly because I don’t have the energy to update two stories at the same time. The ending is also perfect, so that’s it.

I keep checking the comment and some readers speculated that Luo Fei might be magical creature, kek
I’ll just keep stalking so I know what the heck is Luo Fei

Thank you for reading this, for the past few episodes, the scheduling system on the web is wonky and it keep missing the schedule and I forgot to publish it on time.
But now it’s all done, I hope to see you guys in other novels too 😀

Chapter 29

       That day, Chen Youyou eventually drank the cup of coffee, indicating he had forgiven Zhan Weiyang. What made Zhan Weiyang even happier was that the System hadn’t deducted any points from him in the past few days. There were even two nights when it didn’t speak to him at all. Zhan Weiyang fervently hoped that the System had forgotten about him and would never remember him again.

       However, for Zhan Weiyang, nothing could compare with the happiness that Zhan Pengcheng brought him when he returned from his business trip.

       Zhan Pengcheng returned the day before the National Day11st October PRC National Day. Zhan Weiyang had already had his dinner that day and had just returned upstairs when he heard a noise coming from downstairs. He stretched his head out the window of his room to look and was just in time to see Zhan Pengcheng walking through the first-floor door with a suitcase in his hand.

       “Dad!” Zhan Weiyang couldn’t help shouting, then turned around and ran outside. He hurried through the corridor, his slippers clattering on the stairs and ran all the way down. He came to the living room, panting slightly, and saw that Zhan Pengcheng was talking to his grandma.

       Zhan Pengcheng put the box at his feet, walked over, hugged Zhan Weiyang hard, patted his back with the palm of his hand, and called, “Son!”

       Zhan Weiyang showed a happy smile.

       Zhan Pengcheng quickly let go of him and turned around to continue talking to Grandma. Zhan Weiyang stood aside and listened for a while, and listened to him talking about business matters.

       At this time, Pei Qing came down from the second floor, saw Zhan Pengcheng, and called out, “Uncle, are you back?”

       Zhan Pengcheng raised his head and greeted Pei Qing with a smile, “Pei Qing, you have worked hard to take care of the family this month while I was away.”

       Pei Qing said, “It’s not hard for me. You’re the one working hard out there.”

       Zhan Pengcheng still wanted to say something, but Auntie Luo came out of the kitchen and walked towards the dining room with a bowl in hand. As she walked, she said, “Come and eat the noodles first. After you finish, let’s talk slowly.”

       Zhan Pengcheng had rushed straight back after getting off the plane and hadn’t had time to eat dinner yet, so he only asked Auntie Luo to cook a bowl of noodles for him.

       He went to the dining room to sit down and eat noodles. No one else returned to the room, so they went to the dining room to sit with him.

       While eating, Zhan Pengcheng asked his grandma, “Mom, are you feeling well?”

       Grandma folded her arms, stuffed them into her sleeves, and said, “I’m very good.”

       Zhan Pengcheng then asked Zhan Weiyang, “Have you had any exams recently?”

       Zhan Weiyang shook his head.

       Zhan Pengcheng smiled, looked up at Pei Qing, and asked, “Did he behave himself and study?”

       Pei Qing said, “Yes, he is very good every day.”

       Zhan Pengcheng smiled and said, “Don’t hide it from me for him. I know that he sometimes spreads the book on the table and doesn’t read it seriously at all.”

       Zhan Weiyang was sitting next to him. Hearing Zhan Pengcheng’s words, he did not refute but smiled sheepishly.

       Pei Qing lowered his head slightly, smiled softly, and said, “No, he’s really well-behaved.”

       Zhan Weiyang’s eyes darted quickly to Pei Qing, stealing a swift glance. His mouth curved into a slight smile before he immediately looked away again.

       After Zhan Pengcheng finished dinner, Auntie Luo cleaned up and washed the dishes, and Grandma went back to her room to rest. Pei Qing helped Zhan Pengcheng carry the box to the door of his room on the second floor and said, “I’m going back to my room first. Uncle, please rest early.”

       Zhan Pengcheng thanked him, opened the door and pushed the box in.

       Zhan Weiyang followed Zhan Pengcheng, and Pei Qing passed by him when he left. He hooked Pei Qing’s hand with his fingers.

       Pei Qing paused, patted him on the shoulder and said, “Keep your uncle company and chat with him for a while.”

       Zhan Weiyang looked at him and nodded.

       Zhan Pengcheng squatted on the ground and sorted the box. Most of the box contained his clothes. There were a few pieces that he had not washed after wearing them two or three times. He took them out and threw them on the ground.

       Zhan Weiyang walked over and squatted beside him to accompany him quietly.

       Zhan Pengcheng turned his head, looked at Zhan Weiyang and smiled. There were deep wrinkles on the corners of his eyebrows and eyes. These wrinkles would fade slightly when he didn’t smile, but the wrinkles between his eyebrows would not disappear.

       He also had a hard time these past few years.

       Zhan Weiyang’s gaze fell on Zhan Pengcheng’s face.

       Zhan Pengcheng dug out a paper bag from the box, took out a black baseball cap, and raised his hand. He then put it on Zhan Weiyang’s head and said, “Dad bought you a gift. Do you like it?”

       Zhan Weiyang raised his hands to hold the brim of his hat, turned it left and right on his head, and said, “I like it.”

       Growing up, Zhan Pengcheng would buy gifts for Zhan Weiyang whenever he went on a business trip. It was easier when Zhan Weiyang was a child—remote-controlled cars, Iron Man figures, and the like. Now that Zhan Weiyang was growing up, Zhan Pengcheng found it harder to decide what to buy each time. Last time, he bought Zhan Weiyang a pair of sneakers worth over a thousand yuan; this time, he bought a baseball cap.

       But no matter what gift he bought, Zhan Weiyang would always say, ‘I like it’ with bright eyes.

       Zhan Pengcheng couldn’t help but raise his hand, held Zhan Weiyang’s head in his arms, shook it, and said, “Good son.”

       He would ask Zhan Weiyang if he had studied well, but he didn’t really ask him if he had learnt well. He knew that Zhan Weiyang’s grades were not good and there was nothing he could do to improve them. All he hoped for was that Zhan Weiyang could live a happy life, and that was enough for him.

       When Zhan Pengcheng let go of Zhan Weiyang, the hat on Zhan Weiyang’s head was already crooked.

       Zhan Weiyang took off his hat, put it back on, and said with a smile, “Thank you, Dad.”

       Zhan Pengcheng picked up all the clothes thrown on the floor and threw them into the dirty clothes basket in his bathroom, waiting for Auntie Luo to take them to be washed tomorrow.

       When he turned his head from the bathroom to look outside, he saw Zhan Weiyang standing in front of the mirror, trying on the hat. He smiled and said, “Dad’s going to take a shower in a bit. You go back to your room and have some fun.”

       Zhan Weiyang quickly looked back at him.

       He added, “Tomorrow, Xu Song is coming over to play. He’s coming back with your brother. You must not fight and make sure to get along well with your younger brother, okay?”

       Zhan Weiyang said, “Oh.”

       Zhan Pengcheng waved to him, “Go ahead.”

       Zhan Weiyang came out of Zhan Pengcheng’s room and raised his hand to close the door for him. When walking towards his room, he passed Pei Qing’s door. He couldn’t help but walk over and knock on the door.

       He heard Pei Qing say, “Please come in.”

       Zhan Weiyang opened the door and went in. He saw Pei Qing sitting on the edge of the bed, with one leg bent on the bed and the other leg on the edge of the bed. He was holding a mobile phone in his hand as if he was sending a message to someone.

       Pei Qing glanced at him, raised the corners of his mouth slightly, but still looked back at the phone screen and asked casually, “What’s wrong?”

       Zhan Weiyang approached Pei Qing and said, “Qing ge, look at my new hat.”

       Pei Qing smiled and said, “It’s very nice.”

       Zhan Weiyang felt that Pei Qing was perfunctory with him, so he squatted by the bed and looked up at him, saying, “Look at me first.”

       Pei Qing finally put his phone aside, his gaze falling on Zhan Weiyang’s face. He said, “I saw yours, it’s really nice.” After speaking, he reached out, lifted Zhan Weiyang’s hat, and then put it back down.

       Zhan Weiyang stood up happily, took off his shoes, and climbed onto the bed from Pei Qing’s side. He jumped over Pei Qing to the other side and sat down against his own pillow and quilt.

       Pei Qing bent his fingers, tapped twice on the screen of his phone, and said to Zhan Weiyang in a serious tone, “Yangyang, you can’t sleep with me today.”

       Zhan Weiyang originally took his mobile phone out of his pocket. He wanted to take a photo of the hat and send it to Chen Youyou. Suddenly he heard Pei Qing’s words and looked at him blankly, “Why?”

It’s refreshing to see a very gentle and caring parents in danmei
