Chapter 14

TN: Apologies for the late chapter, been busy this week and weekend. >.<

Changed “porridge” and “rice porridge” to “congee.” I forgot that was the official term used lol.


After falling unconscious, Shen Qingqiu woke up like someone half-dead.

He opened his eyes to see a pure white canopy above his head and knew he was in his own quarters at Qing Jing Peak. The chaos caused by the demons should have already been calmed down. He took a breath and wanted to yawn and stretch when suddenly, the door opened and someone came in.

Ming Fan was carrying a tray and seeing that he was awake, flung the tray to his left and howled.

Shifu, you’ve finally woken up!”

There was still another person standing outside the door. Luo Binghe stood at the door. It seemed like he wanted to come in but was uncertain and unsure.

After howling, Ming Fan turned around and saw him. He reprimanded: “How come you’re still standing here?” Then he turned back to Shen Qingqiu: “Don’t know what kind of disease this kid has that he insists on standing here like a stick. Don’t you know that Shizun is annoyed once he sees you? I reminded him but he still doesn’t go.”

Shen Qingqiu weakly held up a hand: “……Might as well. Up to him.”

Ming Fan said: “Bai Zhan Peak’s Martial Uncle Liu said to tell him when you woke up. I-I’ll go call Martial Uncle Liu, Elder Martial Uncle Mu, and the Sect Head!” After finishing, he rushed up and out the door.

Seems like he’d truly slept for a long time…… Yue Qingyuan had already returned to Cang Qiong Mountain sect. As for “Elder Martial Uncle Mu,” that must be Qian Cao Peak’s Mu Qingfang.1 Qian Cao Peak specializes in medical skill and medicine production, so it’s necessary for him to be on the scene.

Luo Binghe moved and made way so that the path was clear. He was far away but refused to leave, his attention focused inside the room.

Shen Qingqiu slowly sat up and said: “Do you have anything to say? If so, then come in.”

Luo Binghe walked inside the room and with a thump, suddenly kneeled down.

Shen Qingqiu: “……!!!”

System, wait a moment? What’s going on? I only slept for a while, how come it became like this just after I woke up? How long did I really sleep? Have ten years passed already?

After Luo Binghe knelt, he raised his head. His eyes were hot with tears and guilt: “Asking Shizun to forgive this disciple’s past ignorance.”

This word ‘ignorance’; no matter who it was put with, it couldn’t be put with Luo Binghe!

“This disciple originally thought that Shizun didn’t care about me. Only in the third trial did I realize Shizun’s troubles in the past.”

Shen Qingqiu: No, no, no. Your original Shizun really didn’t care about you, he’d rather you died, really…… However, what troubles of mine did you realize? You should say more; I’m also very curious!

Luo Binghe didn’t continue speaking down that line and only sincerely said: “From now on, this disciple will definitely wait upon Shizun with all his heart, obey all your commands and instructions.”

Shen Qingqiu looked at him with a complicated expression.

This child’s heart at this moment, was truly…… very kind and honest!

Saved him once and all of the past verbal and physical abuse was completely forgotten?!

If this continued, would he still be able to steel himself and viciously push him into the Endless Abyss?

Shen Qingqiu was silent for a moment, then said: “As long as you understand, it’s good. You get up first.”

Though he didn’t understand at all, what did Luo Binghe comprehend in the end?

He saw Luo Binghe slowly rise but still refuse to leave, a little bashful like there was still something he wanted to say. Shen Qingqiu asked: “Is there anything else?”

Luo Binghe said: “Shizun slept for many days and just woke up. I don’t know if Shizun has an appetite?”

Shen Qingqiu only just noticed that he was so hungry that it felt like his front had stuck to his back. Once he heard that there was food, his eyes turned green with desire and he hurriedly said: “Very much. You bring it up, then.”

Luo Binghe immediately ran to the kitchen. The congee that he remade every hour these days finally came of use. He braved holding the congee that was still wafting stream and brought it over, helping Shen Qingqiu sit up properly from the bed. Eagerly attentive to a fault, he almost fed it straight to Shen Qingqiu’s mouth. Goosebumps emerged on Shen Qingqiu’s arms and he took the spoon himself, eating a few mouthfuls before he saw that Luo Binghe was still standing beside the bed and closely watching him.

Shen Qingqiu thought for moment, then suddenly realized and said lightly: “The taste isn’t bad.”

Though he said the taste wasn’t bad, Shen Qingqiu almost had a face full of tears sort of feeling.

Qing Jing Peak’s core customs walked the path of the fresh and light. Even the cook’s style was along those lines so no matter how he ate, the taste in Shen Qingqiu’s mouth was so light that it was like a bird taking flight. But though the bowl in his hands was also congee – perhaps it was a problem regarding the ingredients or technique – it was on a completely different standard compared to that bowl of light watery soup congee.

Snowy white congee, lightly watery with some green onion garnish, delicious and beautiful-looking shredded meat, and just the right amount of ginger sliced into thin strips.2 It was comparable to what Shen Yuan’s own home’s head chef made back in his original world!

Hearing his exaggeration, Luo Binghe’s two eyes shone and he said: “If Shizun likes it, how about having this disciple make new things for you every day?”

Shen Qingqiu choked on the spot.

Luo Binghe attentively patted him on the back. Shen Qingqiu waved a hand to express he was fine. He was just a little horrified.

Luo Binghe’s good cooking was the number one weapon to ‘kill’ sisters. He really didn’t think he would have the privilege to eat the dishes created by Luo Binghe that only a few select countable-on-one-hand harem sisters could eat.

Even more horrifying were his lines, his lines. This sentence “make new things (dishes) for you every day,” wasn’t it used by Luo Binghe to make those select noble eldest Misses let go of their anger and willingly enter his harem?

Things can be eaten carelessly, but words cannot be said carelessly!

Seeing Shen Qingqiu’s strange expression, Luo Binghe was a little uneasy and asked: “Shizun, do you not like it?”

Shen Qingqiu thought for a while. What does it have to do with me? Since he’s already done so for me, I would be a fool not to take it. Speaking of that, the male protagonist being a free cook for me is something worth showing off!

He immediately put on a kind and genial expression as he said: “This Master really likes it. These duties will be given to your care from now on.”

He finally won’t have to continue eating that light watery soup congee anymore! This Master was also able to open and lead a tiny cafeteria!

Having received confirmation, Luo Binghe’s entire body gave out an aura like a flower blossoming during the warm spring. Shen Qingqiu saw his appearance like that and didn’t know why he suddenly felt like he wanted to rub his head.

After sending away the (made into a coolie child in vain) open and brightly smiling Luo Binghe, Shen Qingqiu knocked on the system.

‘System, I want to ask you some things.’ He thought for bit, ‘The Endless Abyss scene…… is it unavoidable?’

System: 【If Luo Binghe misses the “Endless Abyss” storyline, coolness level -10000. 】

Shen Qingqiu heard the last number clearly and had a habitual mouthful of blood coming up. Forget it, vomiting is vomiting and he had already become used to it.

Actually, he’d already thought about what would happen afterwards and reached a conclusion. If he wasn’t able to banish Luo Binghe into the Endless Abyss, then Luo Binghe wouldn’t be able to activate his golden finger. If the protagonist was left hanging, how would there be any coolness?

Therefore, the path of the Endless Abyss scene must be walked. And the most wretched part of this book was that this mission fell on the head of the number one scum villain.

He still didn’t want to give up and asked again, though with a bit of a sad sigh. The current Luo Binghe who was like a little sun had to descend into becoming that shadowy and cold-blooded BOSS of the book. Even someone like him who had transmigrated was unable to change this fact.

He was destined to strike the protagonist into the Endless Abyss, opening the path for him to become a legend for generations kind of man!

Shen Qingqiu was even more worried about his own future.

If he didn’t do it, his coolness level would drop by 10000. He really couldn’t die any more thoroughly.

Too bad Luo Binghe’s hands after being blackened definitely wouldn’t let him off.

What kind of thing is this!


Luo Binghe hadn’t walked off for long when Shen Qingqiu’s apprentice-brothers approached to inspect his illness.

Shen Qingqiu laid on the bed, his hand holding up a book, when he was met with Yue Qingyuan entering first. He wanted to get off the bed but Yue Qingyuan hurriedly stopped him: “Qingqiu, don’t move carelessly. Don’t attempt to get down only to fall on the ground. It’s better to lie down, there’s no need to care about things like manners.” From another direction behind him was Mu Qingfang: “Martial brother Mu, come and take a look at Qingqiu again.”

While he was unconscious, Mu Qingfang already gave a diagnosis for Shen Qingqiu. Right now would probably count as a follow-up consultation. Shen Qingqiu offered his wrist to him and politely said: “I will be troubling martial brother Mu.”

Mu Qingfang nodded and sat at the bedside, his fingers took his pulse. For Qian Cao Peak’s Peak Lord’s medical knowledge, all kinds of difficult miscellaneous diseases only needed a short moment’s inspection to make a judgment and determine a countermeasure. However, he still seriously took his pulse for a long while before he withdrew his fingers.

Yue Qingyuan asked: “How is it?”

Shen Qingqiu wasn’t reserved and straightforwardly asked: “Can this poison be cured?”

Liu Qingge’s shook his sleeves straight and sat down beside the table, snorting: “This poison is called Without A Cure, what do you say?”

Shen Qingqiu sighed: “Then martial brother Mu, simply say how many years I have left to live? How many months? Or is it how many days?”

Mu Qingfang shook his head and said: “Though it’s without a cure, it can be repressed.”

His voice was even, neither light nor heavy, but Shen Qingqiu felt that he’d gotten a turn of fortune.

Though this poison was called “Without A Cure,” it was actually curable.

Because in the original work, at the beginning of that □□ Immortal Alliance Conference, there was a demure and graceful little apprentice-sister from another sect who had contracted this demonic poison.

The key point was, she was the protagonist’s girl.

Have you met a stallion novel’s male protagonist who let his own girl die from poison?

If you have, then it must be a subpar stallion novel author’s protagonist!

It would be a tens of thousands of years failure of a stallion novel!

The cure was very simple! Let us go back and look at the development in the original work.

Because of the irresistible force of the scene, the graceful little apprentice-sister had contracted the poison from a demon spirit in order to save the male protagonist. Luo Binghe felt he had an unshirkable responsibility and took up the task of finding a cure for the graceful little apprentice-sister.

Coincidentally, in the mountain forest at the Immortal Alliance Conference, there grew a thousand-year miracle flower – sorry, Shen Qingqiu forgot it was called what flower or what grass because in “Proud Immortal Demon Way” there were at least fifty-something kinds of those miracle flowers, and each one was at least thousands of years old and could be counted as a miraculous flower or shrub. The numbers were definitely over three digits and who the heck could remember all those names.

Great God Airplane Towards The Sky, you think miracle flowers are like Chinese cabbages on sale? Give these miracle plants a little dignity, all right!

Luo Binghe thought this miracle flower from the tales would definitely cure the poison in the graceful little apprentice-sister’s body. Not only did he struggle bitterly to pick it for her, he also wasted three days. These three days he searched for the flower while fighting monsters and both of them came to develop feelings for each other. The graceful little apprentice-sister’s poison became more and more serious, her entire body weak when Luo Binghe was finally able to pick the flower. The two people were overjoyed and quickly the graceful little apprentice-sister ate the flower raw (……).

But, it didn’t work! The poison wasn’t cured!

The hearts of both people went cold. The girl felt that she was going to die and thought she must leave behind an unforgettable memory so her existence wouldn’t be forgotten, so she took the opportunity while she was still weak to push down Luo Binghe……

Luo Binghe made a show of resistance but thought afterward ‘she’s doing it all for me. I can’t be coldhearted and refuse her last wish.’ And after a show of reluctance, he yielded and obeyed……

Then, the poison, how was it cured?

After doing pa pa pa [sex], the girl’s poison was naturally cured!

Tired? Vulgar? Farfetched? But it’s very cool, right! Cool thunder, cool thunder, hahahaha……

It’s because Luo Binghe was of mixed demon and human blood. Also, the demon side of his bloodline was that of the demons’ number one Sacred Ruler’s ancient heavenly demon blood! Such a tiny little demon poison was not even enough to stuff between the gaps of his teeth. During the process of the two people having sex, it had already been sucked over by Luo Binghe and digested away. At the same time, even the nutrients of the miracle flower that the girl had eaten raw earlier were absorbed by him, giving him a big boost in cultivation!


—End Chapter 14—


1Qiancao Peak (千草峰)… Mu Qingfang (木清芳): Qiancao Peak means ‘Thousand Grasses’ Peak. The name suggests it’s the medical division of Cang Qiong Mountain sect even without the explanation later. Qingfang means ‘clear fragrance.’

2Snowy white congee…: A lot more appetizing than it sounds. Here’s what it looks like:

    Ohmy SQQ, don’t you see? LBH has already used his signature harem line on you – to cook good food for you – and now you’ve even contracted the poison that he is destined to cure. You’re now totally on the LBH route!! CONGRATS!

    Hopefully the poison will be supressed or cured in some other way before we reach chapter 80 sexy times LOLLL

    SQQ is cute as ways and LBH is so naive XDD

    Thanks for the chapter!

      1. In Scum Villain, smut is literally in next to last chapter. We get two extras with smut.

        In FOD, I think only 1 extra has smut and that’s it.


  7. *chanting* DO IT DO IT DO IT SHIZUN! PUSH HIM DOWN!!!!!

    *cough* please excuse my enthusiasm. This development is too much for my heart. Thanks for the chapter! Can’t wait for ‘endless abyss’ storyline. Guess shizun will jump with him to the endless abyss to save his own life, lol.

  11. LBH is no doctor but even he can give SQQ a “shot” good enough to cure him 😂🌚👀

    How does SQQ not realize he’s the new love interest like obviously LBH’s original girl didn’t get smacked w/ poison

    It’s like when Marty’s grandpa hit him w/ the car instead of his dad and now his mom is in love with him 😂💀💀 (back to the future movie 1)

    Thank Q for translating ~ I should be sleeping but the story is so good and I wanna know what happens so bad 😩🔥🔥

  12. I’m loving the story so far but the fact that LBH is a minor bothers me. Isn’t the mc much older than him? I really hope by the time we reach chapter 80 LBH isn’t still 15 because knowing what’s gonna happen, that just isn’t right….


  13. I am from the Philippines, a country with a deep-rooted Chinese influence, and congee (which is lugaw in our language/dialect) is a staple dish. Especially when somebody is nursing a hangover. It’s the best go-to food. hahaha


  14. the more i read about the original novel, the more i understand why shen yuan is so angry about it.

    thank you for the translation ♡


  15. System: 【……】 The system expressed its unwillingness to communicate with this person.

    translated to: …I’m not talking to you right now. 🤣
