TL: Jerry just finished his exams and is ready to edit again. I want to celebrate his return. So if we can get 50 comments on welcoming Jerry back or about ATF from from different users or have 25 likes on this chapter. Then I will see to it that we release the next chapter will release in two days. Furthermore, if we can reach both goals, then we will even include a 5 day consecutive release starting on 10/22

Chapter 54 Used To It

“So it was like that.”

It was something that could affect the entire life of those three. The black-haired boy with his eyes closed stood as still as a rock, but Long Tu felt the shaking from his arms.

Long Tu was very curious as to what kind of decision he would make.

“Then how about this?”

Tyre tried to answer casually.

“You and I form a group, possibly a mercenary group. Because it is too shameful to be followers.”

“How? How could we? Senior 123 is … “

“Just call me Tyre.” Tyre waved his hand and told them his real name. This way Tyre would not have to hide anything.

“Tyre … so your name is Tyre.” Long Tu murmured while still in his arms. The other four were filled with hope. For senior to reveal his name to them meant that they had at least been acknowledged.

“Alright, we can talk about following another time. Well, I have always been alone so it would be interesting to have a group. If you want to follow the group, then follow the group. And if you want to leave the group then I won’t force you to stay either.”

“Yes, we will definitely follow senior Tyre to the ends of the world!”

“Ah, alright already, are you not embarrassed when saying that? Hey, Where is Jade Star?” Tyre finally realised the green-haired mercenary was missing. Nothing bad happened based on the expression of the other three.

Roselle Butterfly spoke on behalf of the others with a sigh.

“Jade Star is a magician so she could not hold up against that [Ogre Lord]. Hence we let her leave first.”

“So that was it, but to let an exhausted magician leave alone in this mountain is very dangerous. Let us catch up to her now.”


The five people finished their conversation and ran down the mountain path.

The heavy rain kept pouring. Sometimes a chilling wind would sweep against them. Occasionally some light would slip past the cloud, only to get covered again by the dark clouds.

The road was winding, but they still moved faster than they did on the way up. There were not many monsters showing up, probably due to the falling rocks caused by the rain. However, their thoughts came to a pause when they saw a half-eaten corpse of a green-haired mercenary at the bottom of the mountain.

Roselle Butterfly kneeled beside the body and cried as hard as the rain.


Tyre’s group informed Harriot of Jade Star’s death. Harriot seemed calm at first, the next day, however, Tyre got the news of Harriot’s suicide at Hess City’s Lake Park. Roselle Butterfly informed that place was the first time those two had met.

The rain continued to majestically pour as if trying to release many months worth of accumulated rainwater.

Tyre sat on the bed inside the mercenary hotel. He didn’t turn on his [Nightless Stone] despite the darkness caused by the rain. The rain endlessly slammed against the window with the sound, ba da ba da.

The dark-haired man held a wine glass that’s part of Harriot’s collection like he was remembering him. Only that Tyre did not feel much sadness. He thought that maybe it was because they only met by chance.

Pa Pa

A knock on the door caught Tyre’s attention. Roselle Butterfly’s voice came through the door.

“Senior Tyre. We have received the reward. It totals thirty five thousand gold coins.”

“Ah, come in first.”

“Yes.” Roselle Butterfly opened the door and saw Tyre sitting on his bed. She instantly blushed and wondered why senior let her in without putting on his shirt first? Showing that bare skin caused others to become embarrassed.

“So to divide the reward, how about we each take three thousand and give Jade Star Twenty Thousand?”

“Ok … But it was seniors who did most of the work. How about we take only one thousand each and both seniors take six thousand.” Roselle suggested. But Tyre quickly rejected while he shook his head and waved his hand.

“Please distribute it like I said. You can leave now.”

“Yes …”

“Say … Cili, are you in grief?”

The sudden question stopped Roselle Butterfly in her track, she replied in a calm voice

“Sad, very sad. But, I am used to it.”

Roselle closed the door after she finished and left Tyre on his own. The warmth in the room seemed to have dropped several degrees.

“Used to it … ” Tyre gave a self-mocking laugh then drank all the wine in the glass.

Ah, really strong.

———- second half section ——-


The door slammed open, and a girl with golden blonde hair confidently strode in then sat on the bed while Tyre watched in shock.

“Oh~ So this is how a [Gabriel Continent] hotel feels like.”

The girl finished her words then laid down on the bed and rolled around. Tyre finally recovered and curiously asked.

“Miss Long Tu, you got the reward money so there shouldn’t be any reason for you to remain here right?”

“What, so you want to get rid of me just like that?”

“No, just curious that is all.”

“Oh yeah, I am also curious.”

“Curious? Curious about what?”

Immediately after Tyre asked, Long Tu took out a fancy red invitation from her storage ring.

“Here, take a look yourself.”

Tyre slowly opened the invitation he received from Long Tu. The invitation contained the following words written.

Duke Xavier’s birthday banquet!

  1. So the one who fled because she didn’t want to die died. Color me surprise that when you run off on your own your chance of survival takes a nosedive.

    Thanks for the chapter anyway.

    1. Indeed. It is hard to feel bad for a character that easily forgets one of the simplest of mother nature’s guidelines. “He who fights alone is more likely to perish.”

  2. RIP Jade Star, RIP perverted masochist baldy.

    If i were Wind Slashing Ghost, i would gtfo of the story line. Not directly learning techniques from Tyre, like the other two mercs, is a huge death flag.

  3. Thanks for the chapter~

    I was in a happy go lucky mood when the story just got depressing, 😳 couldn’t they at least have warned me 😭

    Such Irony~

    Welcome back Jerry, glad to be welcoming you back.

    1. And it was so unnecessary too. The other three “friends” of her just abandoned her for a stranger and that knowing they were so weak they couldn’t even buy a spec of time. Great “friends” they were. Poor Jade star was the only one that made the right decision and gets even punished for it.

  4. well i guess long tu or tyre go invited on lunaria order lol useless it was coincidentia because they defeated a big monster lol

  5. Welcome back Jerry! ^.^/
    Many thanks for the chapters! <3
    I would definitely have pressed the like button, but I haven't got an account x'3.

  6. Thanks for the chapter and welcome back Jerry!

    It looks like Lunaria’s turn next time but if it is just Tyre watching the competition it would be to troll (and funny) xD

  7. Thanks for the chapter! I got a feeling, that author writing style finally started to improve, well original idea about 2 bodies 1 mind seem’s kinda lost though.

  8. Yo welcome back Jerry. Can’t wait for the next chapter because i don’t like 1st tyre arc all that much cause i read ahead using Google translate and i like Lunaria’s side more.

  9. I have no idea who Harriot is, so he shall continue to be forever forgotten. And is that invitation sent for the loli or MC?

  10. Time for Luminaria? also honestly it feels like their a different person now because of the lack of POV change.

  11. Finally. I miss u Lunamaria.
    RIP Jade Star but i wonder why the Author need her to die. I felt her death has a meaning for future plot. Probably to make Lunamaria can join their party because she is too like Jade Star, a Magician.

    I can wait to see the expression of Lunamaria’s friends at capital when they meet mr.123 real face ha ha

    1. No.

      The author just likes killing characters off and giving some people bullshit plot armor.

      It’s kind of like how most Xianxia beat the shit out of the main character by saying he’s trash to show how cruel the world is.

  12. Harriott used to work in guild. Harriott and jade star is lover. That why harriott’s sucide because he cannot accept her death.
    -R.I.P Harriott year xxxx-

  13. Going back it’s funny how some of us(including me) got Lunaria’s name wrong~

    – Lunaria
    – Luminaria
    – Lunamaria

    Which one is it? hahaha!

      1. Original translator seem to have spoke with the original author for that name. According to chapter 8 comments.
        Lunamaria = Lunamare = moon sea = the far side of the moon.
        but I guess they shorten it to Lunaria

        as for Luminaria … I think you are thinking of a different novel … “She Professed Herself The Pupil Of The Wiseman” is the closest related novel with that name used.

        1. TFW you want to correct someone on a scientific fact that has no relevance to the conversation so you shut up.

          And I meant in the context of comments, I’m not typing Lunaria every damned time.
          Luna is so much easier to type.

  14. Random Fact #9
    There’s a person from our world in their world. Not going to say who, but it’s damned fucking obvious the first time he’s mentioned.

    And is there really a need to put some words into brackets? It’s not like the author did it… And it’s pretty obvious that they’re nouns.

      1. Maybe it was to emphasis that it’s not something that we can see in our world?

        Though Night Stones are practically electric lamps :

        And I’ve been wondering, why is your comment name ‘M H ‘ while your translation name up top is ‘Mxhe’?

  15. Btw

    I love tyre and hate lunaria, because I feel tyre is more talented and more humble (even thought they are the same person).

    Also, when do you guys think they get back together (please no spoilers, only honest guesses)
    I think it will be in 1XX hundred something

  16. one of the best xianxia(? not sure if xianxia or wuxia) hands down

    like is this the only xianxia with none arrogant mc

    I just pray he doesn’t get arrogant later on, I am little bit scared of the future

  17. Hey thanks for the chapter! I really hope the translator and editor will continue to work on this novel, it’s always a shame when a good work in progress is put on halt. All in all keep up the good work, your dedication is appreciated.

  18. The story can become shockingly dark. Killing off the only character that made the right choice of retreat, and reward the other three people on drug for throwing away their life. Even though they knew they would die without even buying time……HOW STUPID IS THAT??? THEY PRACTICALLY KILLED A FRIEND THEY KNEW FOR YEARS BY LEAVING HER ALONE IN A KNOWN DANGEROUS AREA FOR A PERSON THEY KNOW SHIT ABOUT AND AN ACT THAT COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE USELESS!!! To kill Jade star was sooo unnecessary and that stupid manner too.
