Chapter 1038: My Name Is Nian Ye (1)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

A red light glowed in a mountain cave. The light was as red as a halo of blood and was eerily beautiful.

At this moment, a woman dressed in green robes was lying on the ground in the mountain cave. She was bathed in the blood-red light, illuminating her figure. She was currently unconscious so she did not hear the muffled voices in the mountain cave.

"Eh? I had sensed the Ancient Divine Pagoda's aura a while ago. Could it be that this woman is the Ancient Divine Pagoda's Master?"

"There can be no mistake about it. No one else but the Master of the Ancient Divine Pagoda can enter this place so this woman should be that person. Since that's the case, it's about time we return these things to their rightful owner after being guarding them all this time..."

The whispers faded away as the red light within the cave glowed brilliantly. Suddenly, a sword drenched with blood red light flew over from a distance away. It then entered Gu Ruoyun's mind.

"The Ninth Emperor has recognized its Master. We should send her out of this place now."

The muffled voice sounded once again before everything grew quiet. A hurricane then rose from within the cave and carried Gu Ruoyun's body up...

It hurts!

Gu Ruoyun felt as if her head had exploded and she was in extreme agony. The searing pain made her knit her brows together before she slowly opened her eyes.

An old, thatched hut came into her sight. The house had simple furnishings and she was lying on a bed made of grass. Her initially blood-drenched robes have been changed into a set of clean but patched robes. This surprised her and the frown on her face deepened.

"Where am I? I had sustained injuries on my chest so why does my head hurt instead? Also, I feel as if my entire body has lost all its strength."

The feeling of weakness made Gu Ruoyun feel utterly powerless.

Logically speaking, since I've taken some pills, my body should have been healed after such a long period of time. How did this happen?


Just as Gu Ruoyun was rubbing her temple with her fingers, she suddenly realized that there was an additional sword in her head.

The sword was completely red in color and nine awe-inspiring dragons were carved onto its blade. Gu Ruoyun only needed one look to sense the majestic air that shone from within the sword.

It was like a king which stood tall in the world. Anyone who stands before it must obey!

The Divine Weapon, Ninth Emperor!

These words suddenly appeared in Gu Ruoyun's mind, creating shockwaves throughout her entire being.

Divine weapon?

Is this sword a divine weapon?

That makes sense. What other kinds of weapon, aside from a divine weapon, would have the power to shock anyone in such a manner?

However, what I don't understand is when this divine weapon had appeared in my head.

"Master," the white dragon's voice rang out from within her soul, "The spiritual weapon has been destroyed and I am severely injured. Initially, I had intended to enter the divine weapon in your mind but that divine weapon already contains a weapon spirit. That weapon spirit has great power and has denied me access so I was unable to enter the divine weapon."

Though the white dragon may only be a spirit, because he had become a weapon spirit in a spiritual weapon, he would also suffer severe injuries if the spiritual weapon was damaged. It was a good thing that the damage on the spiritual weapon was not too severe. Otherwise, he would have vanished with a puff of smoke along with the spiritual weapon.

"I'm sorry, I had underestimated the power of a Martial Saint." Gu Ruoyun sighed, "Go into another spiritual weapon and recuperate first. You can come back once I've repaired this spiritual weapon."

Gu Ruoyun has the ability to nurture an average weapon into a spiritual weapon so she has a lot of spiritual weapons on hand. Naturally, the white dragon could find a place for it to recuperate.

"Yes, Master."

The white dragon replied softly. To him, recuperating his soul was at the highest priority.

Just then, a small hand pushed the door open and a little maiden with two braids walked in, carrying a pot of water. When she that Gu Ruoyun had woken up, she approached her joyfully.

"You're awake? Big Brother was out hunting in the mountains when he found your unconscious body on the ground. He was afraid that you would run into fearsome spiritual beasts so he had brought you back."

Naturally, she was referring to regular wild animals with no spiritual consciousness when she said that her brother was out 'hunting'.

Normal beasts exist just like regular humans on the mainland.

"Thank you."

Gu Ruoyun held her forehead and tried to get out of bed. However, she was not as strong as she thought she was and staggered a little before she sat right back on the bed again.

It seems that she has to endure many repercussions after unwittingly forming a contract with this Divine Weapon. She would not be able to help Yu'er to search for medicinal herbs for the time being. 

"Be careful." When she saw what Gu Ruoyun had tried to do, the little maiden hurriedly put the wooden basin down and quickly rushed over to support her. "You are already so badly injured, you should get a proper rest," she chided Gu Ruoyun with slight impatience. "For the time being, it's best that you stay put."

Gu Ruoyun frowned. She then turned towards the little maiden who was making her way towards the wooden basin once again. "What is this place? Also... Who are you?"

The little maiden held a handkerchief up and walked back towards Gu Ruoyun. She grinned and the freckles on her face complimented splendidly along with her smile. "You may call me Xiao Yu, just like Big Brother. This is Wind Fall Village. My mother and father were both killed by bandits so it's just me and my brother now. By the way, what's your name?"

My name?

Gu Ruoyun paused and fell silent for a moment before she slowly replied, "My name is... Nian Ye."

"Nian Ye?" The little maiden cocked her head and murmured, "What a strange name. If your name is Nian Ye, who are you missing 1  ?"

Gu Ruoyun smiled delicately but did not answer her question. It was a good thing that the little maiden did not prod her any further. She glanced at the sky outside the house and exclaimed in a good-natured manner, "The sun is setting soon, Big Brother should be on his way back now."

It was easy to see that the little maiden misses her older brother dearly.

As soon as she has spoken, a noise sounded from outside the door. A man who was holding a large bow in his hand then slowly walked into the house. He was dressed in a tiger skin waistcoat which set off his tanned complexion.

"Miss, are you alright now?"

The man had noticed that Gu Ruoyun, who was lying on the bed, was awake. He scratched the back of his head in amicably and chuckled, "It was my sister who had helped you out of your clothes. However, there aren't any decent clothes in the house so we'll have to inconvenience you for now. I hope you don't mind."

"It's fine, I don't mind. It would be reasonable to say that I should be the one to thank you both for saving my life."

Gu Ruoyun smiled and replied nonchalantly.

When he heard her words, the man heaved a sigh of relief. Even though this lady was drenched in blood when he had found her, he could tell from her aura that she was definitely not from an average organization. He had been really afraid that she would take offense.

"Miss, I don't know what you had encountered which had resulted in someone trying to hunt you down. However, you can recuperate here in peace. The Wind Fall Village folk are a simple and honest bunch. You need not worry about your enemies finding you here."

'Nian Ye' is actually written as 念夜. 念 actually means 'to miss someone', and 夜 is actually the very same 夜 from Qianbae Ye's name! 🙂 Guess our Gu Ruoyun really misses her bae 😉

Chapter 1040: My Name Is Nian Ye (3)

The man's gaze was sincere as he looked at Gu Ruoyun and spoke in a hoarse voice.

A sense of fondness emerged in Gu Ruoyun's heart when she saw his sincerity and honesty. She smiled as she replied, "Thank you."

"Please recuperate your wounds in peace, Miss. Let me know if there's anything that you need. I'll help you as long as it's within my power."

The man could not help but blush when he saw her smile.

He has never seen such a good-looking woman before. Even though she was dressed in such plain and simple clothes, it could not hide her lucid, elegant, and noble air. She definitely stood out from the crowd.

Of course, his blushing face does not mean that he has any intentions towards Gu Ruoyun.

It was a reaction like when most people lay their eyes on a handsome man or a beautiful woman. They would not be able to help themselves from wanting to take a second glance at them. This was only limited to feelings of admiration and not because they had felt their hearts move! He had saved her and brought her back was not because he had been moved by her delicate and pretty features. It was simply because he would not stand idly by while someone was lying injured on the ground.

"Brother, I'm hungry. Let's go get dinner ready, okay?"

The little maiden stuck her tongue out in a charming manner and linked arms with the man in a coquettish and lovable way. She then snuggled up to him and placed her head on his body.

"Alright." The man stroked the little maiden's head as his eyes filled with indulgence.

As Gu Ruoyun observed the loving pair of siblings, her mind unconsciously thought of Gu Shengxiao and her gaze sank.

I've been away from the West Spirit Mainland for such a long time now, I wonder how Big Brother is doing. However, knowing him, he wouldn't be satisfied with staying in West Spirit Mainland for the rest of his life.

One day, he will make the journey to this place as well!

Before that time arrives, I will conquer the world. By then, I'll have the power to ensure my big brother's safety.

In the following days, Gu Ruoyun made no further attempts to go look for the medicinal herbs. Instead, she relaxed and recuperated in the little village. It goes without saying that being away from the splendor of the mundane world, this plain and simple little village was very suitable for cultivation especially with only simple and honest village folk around. Not only did they include Gu Ruoyun despite her unknown origins, every household had even brought out their stockpile of food and sent them over for fear of neglecting their guest who had journeyed from far away.

Gu Ruoyun knows very well that to these regular people, that stockpile of food was more important than anything else. However, they had brought them over for the sake of a stranger like her. It would be difficult for her to forget about their kindness.

She even had the thought that once she had found both her parents, it would not be a bad idea to move here and retire for the rest of their lives.

At least there would not be much strife and there would not be too many competitive massacres either...

At this moment, in a tiny and shabby storage room, Gu Ruoyan was staring at a pile of medicinal herbs in a corner with mild surprise. Her gaze then fell upon the little maiden next to her and she asked, "Xiao Yu, are you a doctor?"

"I'm studying medicine." The little lady smiled shyly as she replied. "But I'm still not good enough. Ah, by the way, I had wrapped your wound up for you. If my medicinal skills were good enough, you wouldn't need to wait half a month to fully recuperate."

Gu Ruoyun smiled, the injuries on her body have healed long ago. The reason why she had not made a full recovery was due to the repercussions from forming a contract with the Divine Weapon, the Ninth Emperor.

"Nian Ye, do you know? My dream is to become a great doctor. I want to heal the sick and wounded! I even want to be able to snatch the life of a dying person from the clutches of the King of Hell!"

The little maiden's eyes sparkled and the freckles on her face grew more comely along with the light in her eyes. Suddenly, she seemed to remember something and the light in her eyes darkened.
