This is a rather bad english translation of tian long ba bu from a bit of Chapter 6 especially the poetry parts but the general meaning can be vaguely put across. Pardon me as its my first time translating.
Duan Yu hugged Mu Wanqing in his bosom, feeling both happy and concerned, he asked, “Miss Mu, how is your injury? Did that evil person bully you?” Mu Wanqing said angrily, “Who am I to you? Still calling me Miss Mu?”
Seeing Mu Wanqing angry, yet prettier at the same time; this seven days he had missed her really badly; tightening his arms, he said gently, “Sister Wan! Sister Wan! Can I call you that?” lowering his head at the same time and kissed her. Mu Wanqing exclaimed, “Ah!” blushed deeply and jumped up saying “There are other people here! How could you…you do that? Aye, where are those people?” looking around, realised that the robed person, and Zhu, Bo, Zhu these four people were gone; Zhuo zi mu had left with his son, there was not a single person in their surroundings.
Duan Yu asked, “Who else is here? Is it Divine Croc?” looking frightened. Mu Wanqing asked, “How long have you been here?” Duan Yu replied, “Only for a while. I came up this peak.” Mu Wanqing said, “Ok…”mumbling, “This is strange. How come everyone just disappeared in an instant? Suddenly, someone behind a rock recited, “Moving thousands of miles with a sword, daring to speak…” during the reciting, a person came out; it was one of the four royal guards Zhu dan chen. Duan Yu said happily, “Brother Zhu!” Zhu dan chen walked two steps in front, bowed and replied happily “Young master, luckily you are safe and well, just now what the young lady said made us so anxious!” Duan Yu made a polite hand gesture and said, “So all of you have met? Why are you…you here? This is coincidental.”
Zhu dan chen replied with a smile, “The four of us were ordered to escort young master home, it was not a coincidence. Young master, you are so daring to wander alone in the martial arts world. We went to Ma wu de’s home to find you and also rushed to Wu liang mountain. These few days all of us have been worried enough. Duan Yu replied with a laugh, “I went through quite a lot of suffering too. Uncle and father must be really angry, right?” Zhu dan chen replied, “They are of course not very happy. But when we left the two masters were not very angry already and have missed you greatly these few days. After Marquis Shan chan found out that the four evil ones were coming to Dali, he became worried that young master will bump into them, thus he personally rushed out.”
Duan yu said, “Uncle Gao is finding me too? How can I not feel bad? Where is he?” Zhu dan chen replied, “Just now we were here. Marquis Gao chased away an evil woman, heard young master’s cries and heaved a sigh of relief, and then he ordered me to wait here for young master. Then they went to chase after the evil woman. Young master, let’s go back home, so that the two masters will not be too worried. Duan yu said, “So you…you were also here?” thinking about how his intimate actions with Mu Wanqing had been seen and heard by him, blushed in embarrassment.
Zhu dan chen said, ‘Just now I was sitting behind the rock reading Wang chang ling’s poetry collection, his wu jue “Moving thousands of miles with a sword, daring to speak….Once a man of honour, not breaking his promises…”in these simple twenty words which are unconventional and very worthy of admiration.” and took out a book; it was “Wang chang ling’s poetry collection”. Duan yu nodded and replied, ‘Wang chang ling’s speciality is qi jue, not wu jue. But this literary piece is of high quality. Isn’t his other piece: “song guo si cang” even better?’ he then recited “Reflection of the door in the green water, leaving the heart of the master. The bright moon…, the deep spring night.” Zhu dan chen bowed again and said “Thank you young master.” using the poetry lines to change the topic. He used those lines to say that he will, like the others repay young master in death. Duan Yu used those lines to say that as master, he is devoted to his subordinates and will treat them as good friends. Looking at each other, the two of them smiled.
Mu Wanqing did not know poetry and thought “This bookworm forgot where he is, once he talks about poetry, he gets so interested. This military officer sure knows how to flatter people,…
