    Chapter 1: Rain in Wei, Youngster in Wait
    During the spring time of year thirteen, rain poured down upon a city in the region of the Tang empire.

    This city is the city of Wei located in the northwestern borderline of the empire. Since the original purpose of the settlement was to counter the invasion of barbarians from the Great Plain, the walls of the fort have been reinforced to an extreme degree. As a result of the enhancements, the walls protecting the city had a sturdy and muddy external appearance.

    When the wind started to blow during the dry seasons, the mud on the walls will break off and swirl around in the air only to land on the cheaply made military camps and on the soldiers themselves. The mud invaded every part of the city painting the city brown from inside out. When people went to sleep and shook their blankets, a mini-sandstorm can form out of the dust.

    Its early spring and soldiers welcomed the rain cheerfully because it would wash away all the dusts on the roof. More importantly, the eyes of people seem to be cleansed by the long missing rain - At least the eyes of Ma Shi Xiang are flashing under the rain.

    As the highest rank officer in Wei City, Ma Shi Xiangs current attitude can be described as humble. Although he is unsatisfied about the muddy foot prints on the luxurious carpets, he covered his dissatisfaction up perfectly by acting surprised.

    He bowed before an elderly dressed in a dirty rope. Well-respected elder, although Im not sure what other materials the noble guest in the camp needs, I did prepare a hundred soldiers for escort if she desperately wants to leave tomorrow.

    The elder smiled warmly and pointed at the shadows in the camp while shaking his head to show no complains. Suddenly, a cold and proud female voice came out of the camp. There is no need, just finish your own business.

    Ma Shi Xiang did not spent too much time to figure out the true identity of the noble guest in the camp when their mass entered Wei city this morning. He showed no sign of negative attitude or complaints against her self-centered and harsh response.

    The silence in the camp broke off when the guest suddenly spoke, The trip from Wei City to the capital has to go through Mount Min. The roads in the mountain may collapse any minute due to this heavy rain...... Get me a guide from the military so I can get through the mountain safely.

    Ma Shi Xiang was stunned for a moment until he remembered a hateful guy. He thought deeply for a few seconds and answered, it shall be done.

    Outside of the military camp, several military officers look at each other with different facial expressions, some felt sorry, some felt reluctant to let go, some felt rejoice while some felt surprised, but none of them had expected that Ma Shi Xiang will actually choose that person to serve as the nobles guide.

    General, are you really ready to let him go that easily? One officer said surprisingly.

    Wei Village is not big, even summing up all the officers and soldiers the city wont have more than three hundred soldiers. The military camp far away from rich places sometimes seems more like a bandits nest. The so called general is simply the lowest rank in the army. However Ma Shi Xiang direct troops extremely strict, or we can say this Wei Village bandit leader really liked others to call him general, so even during daily conversation, his subordinates always addressed Ma Shi Xiang as general.

    Ma Shi Xiang, wiped off the rain on his face, looks at the yellow ponding near the military camp and took a deep breath.We cant always keep him in a place that cant support his talent. The response of the recommendation letter had came on for more than half of a year already. A bright future is ahead for that kid, and he has to go to the Capital to take the test to get into a respectable academy. Also, him going with the noble to the capital will bring him favor when he go to the capital.

    I doubt that noble will care...The military officer answered irritatedly.

    The door behind opened and a pretty maid walked in, looked at Ma Shi Xiang and the military officers Let me see the guide.

    She did not hide her arrogance at all while facing the courts general, after all, she is the personal maid of the noble.

    Prime Ministers door guards, nobles maids, princes guests are the most troublesome type of people to deal with. If you get close to them, you will get complaints but if too far away, you will get trouble. They are the most annoying to deal with. So naturally Ma Shi Xiang really didnt want to deal with these kind of people. He casually talked for a bit and called one officer over to take this nobles maid to meet the kid.


    When the rain had finally paused, the city of Wei was as clean as it can be. Along the way, trees along the side started to show the early signs of spring, yet the city is too small even though the landscape is so beautiful. Not soon after, the officer already led the maid to the destination, a shabby but lively room.

    Hearing the noises from the room, the maid frowned slightly Are they really drinking wines in a military camp during the day? Wind blew up the curtains, the sound inside suddenly got clear, as expected, the people were playing the finger-guessing game(a drinking game at feasts, kinda like rock paper scissor), but they are not playing the regular one -- as the maid listened to the details inside, a quick humiliation appeared on the maids pretty face, and she secretly clenched up her fist.

    Lets play a lustful finger guessing game, uh! Who is lustful? Uh, you are lustful! Who is lustful? Uh, you are lustful! Who is lustful? Uh, you are lustful!....

    The filthy sounds echoed back and forth and seem to never end, actually, the game lasts for a really long time and there hasnt been a winner yet. The maid gets more and more angry as time passed. She lifted the curtains and gave a furious look into the room, and saw a kid at the first moment, who sat opposite to the desk.

    That kid is about 15 or 16 year old, wearing a cotton-made jacket that was commonly seen in the troop. His jacket was really dirty, his hair was curled up, and a bit oily, but his face was really clean, which makes his freckles really clear.

    Who is lustful? Uh, you are lustful!

    Completely different from the dirty words, the kids facial expression is especially serious. Not only did he not look lustful, but also his face suggested a sense of holiness. His right hand keeps playing this finger guessing game, giving out his fist like the wind. It seems like winning the game is more important than his life.

    I win!

    The long lasting game finally ended, the black hair kid waves his right arm forcefully, declaring his victory, and smiled happily.

    However, the kids opponent didnt want to admit his loss, and insisted that the kid changes his fist when he is yelling Who is lustful?So the room becomes a mess as the people started to argue. The audiences on the sides each had their own inclinations, and no one is able to convince the others. At this time, someone suddenly shouted out, As usual, listen to Sang Sang!

    Everyone then puts his eyes toward a corner of the room, there was a 12 year old girl moving a bucket. She was really skinny, her skin was dark, and she has a common face. The clothes she was wearing seems to be way too big in comparison to her size, most likely her master stole this clothes from somewhere. She was moving a bucket that was probably heavier than her own weight, and its obvious that she looked very tired.

    The little maid whose name is Sang Sang puts down the bucket and turns around, soldiers look at her nervously, they are just like the gamblers waiting for the dealer to declare the result. Obviously, people can tell that such situations happened more than once already.

    The little maid frowned as she looked at the kid, then looked towards the angry soldier who sits opposite to the kid with a serious expression, At the 23rd turn, you gave out scissor, he gave out rock, but you said he is lustful, so you lost at that time already.

    The people all started to laugh, and spread out. That soldier scolded as he pays the money, the kid accepted the money happily. He taped the soldiers shoulder to show honest console,


    Think optimistically, this entire Wei city...... no, this entire world, who can win against me, Ning Que?

    The maids facial expression was filled with disappointment, so the general who stood next to her was starting to worry as well. He clinched the curtain with his fist, took a deep breath, and was about to cough to warn Ning Que but the cold stare of the maid interpreted his actions.

    After stopping the general to warn the guy, the maid followed the youngster and his servant out the camp to observe them carefully. The general had no idea what the maid wanted to do, so he thought it was an exotic habit of people from the upper class.

    The youngster named Ning Que did not show any special routine on his way home. He bought some food, chatted with the fat lady at the tavern, and seemed to enjoy his life. The only thing that angered the maid was that the tiny servant following Ning Que was struggling to carry a heavy water barrel while he showed no sign to help.

    Even though the empire had a specific and strict social structure, the culture was very simple and honest. Even in the capital, where prosperity and immorality coexist, people could not just stand there and see a little girl suffer without feeling sympathetic.

    They allowed servants in the military? the beautiful maid asked the general calmly, trying to suppress her anger.

    The general scratched his head and answered,There was a huge drought and famine few years back, countless refugee poured into the southern states and the border cities. There were dead bodies everywhere on the sides of streets. I heard Ning Que dug Sang Sang out of dead body piles and saved her. He was an orphan as well. They lived and supported each other to this day.

    The general continued, when he enlisted, his only request was to bring the little girl into the Wei city, he looked at the maid and explained carefully, we all know the rules of military does not allow such situation, but their condition was quite special. It was hard to push a little girl into her doom, so everyone just pretended......to know nothing.

    After listening to the explanation, the maid started to feel better, but after looking at Ning Que carrying the roast chicken around cheerfully while the little servant struggled to move the water barrel, her mood turned terrible again. Is this living and supporting each other? he clearly wanted to kill that little girl!

    Wei city truly was small, after a little while, the four man crew arrived at a small house in the southern part of the city. There was a tiny rock garden outside of the house, and around the garden there was a simple fence where the maid and general were standing and looked into the house.

    The tiny maid pushed the water barrel next to a tank and stepped onto a small wooden bench. She used all of her strength to pour the water into the tank. Quickly, she started to wash the vegetable and cleaned the rice. Waiting for the food to cook, she took a piece of rag and started to wipe the desks, chairs, doors, and windows. Not for long, steam rose from the stove and covered around her small body.

    Although it was raining last night, the water didnt wash away the dust on the windows, but rather left muddy watermarks on them. These watermarks had been quickly erased by the wiping of Sang Sang. The small house had suddenly became much brighter and cleaner.

    It was clear that she does these chores daily, her actions were swift and experienced. It was easy to feel silly and sympathize for the girl when she move around busily as sweat ran down her face.

    Except the guy, Ning Que seemed to be lacking these two emotions. He calmly sat on a bamboo chair with his left hand flipping through an old book and his right hand holding a tree branch writing things on the wet muddy floor. Sometimes when he started to ponder, he throws the tree branch away and flipped his palm upward, and there would be a cup of hot tea served right to him.

    The soldier of Wei city got used to this frame for a while now, so they didnt see anything out of place. But the gaze of the noble guest outside of the fence got colder and harsher by the moment. Especially when she saw that the young maid had to check up on the youngster and serve his needs while she did the hard chores, the noble guests complexion frozen and was filled with hatred.

    Binggodude, great to see a new translation start! Could you fix the font though? I know it's times new roman, but using TNR here makes the font tiny and hard to read. Thanks so much, and keep it up!

    Default font is fine, I think. No need to set a special one, and setting a special one makes the text look tiny.

    True that.I posted in the translation requests his post on not translating anymore(the dark side of leechers ) in quote.I am still grateful for these translations though since I wanted to read this one(read the 4 chapters of manhua,and yeah it starts slowly but not like Law of The(is there a the in the name?) Devil which supposedly needs 130 chapters).So nice to see so manly translators these days,a shame that It`s past midnight here so I can`t proofread this well(the main problem is in present simple and past participle and where past participle should be used or so it seems to my brain which lacks sleep for the last 3 days).Sorry for the wall of text~

    DANGIT because helloshorty just announced that he was stopping his translation work XD.

    Oh well, as much as I'd rather see Battle Through the Heavens translated more than this I will echo Bludflag and say I did enjoy the Manhua and will enjoy reading this. (though if you decide to switch I'll cheer you on!)

    Thanks for the chapter!

    Chapter 2: The Wise and Poor Kid


    Even if she is your servant, but didnt you risk your life digging her out of dead body piles? Didnt people say you guys live and support each other? Even if she is your maid, dont you think she is a little too young for the extreme physical labors? How did a man of young age like you have such a lazy habit and not do anything yourself?

    Perhaps triggered by haunted child memory, the personal maid had a bad impression of Ning Que using the maid to do physical labor. The personal maid of the noble pushed open the fences entrance and walk straight in. Landing her eyes on the old book Ning Que was reading and scoffed, I thought you are reading some ancient philosophical work, making you lose sense of all your surroundings, but it is just a regular meditation book that is overflowing throughout the market. A lowlife like you wish to Xiu Xing?*


    Ning Que sat up from the chair and straighten his back, curiously looking at the lady in fancy clothing and peeked at the embarrassed general, stopped and explains, Unfortunately only this book was available on the market so I bought it out of curiosity, I have no extravagant wishes to Xiu Xing..

    Clearly the maid did not expect the young man to answer so freely, and couldnt find a reply to his explanation. She turned and looked toward the young girl who is dumping out the furnace ash, and spoke unhappily, How does the powerful Tang empire breed a man like you.

    Ning Que wrinkled his eyebrows confusingly, and saw the maids eyes were on Sang Sang, who is holding the rag cleaning the windows. He realized the reason for the maids piercing speech and smiled. From the look of it, you are older than me. Well... you can treat me as a little boy instead of a man.


    Perhaps the maid hadnt seen anyone who is as shameless as the youngster in front of her. Her fists started to clinch together and her anger was about to burst out, but when her eyes land on the writings on the muddy earth next to the bamboo chair, she lost all of her thoughts and forgot what she was about to say.

    .................................................. .....................

    In the best military camp of Wei city, the elder in the dirty rope is resting with his eyes closed. The general is bowing while he was talking to the noble guest in the camp. His humble attitudes contain an expression of deep surprise.



    You are not satisfied with the guide I chose? he asked confusingly, For what reason?

    The noble guest rebuked strongly, I asked for a guide with experience and ability, not a lazy youngster whose head is full of wishful dreams Xiu Xing and has no strength to even catch a chicken.


    Ma Shi Xiang coughed lightly and explained quietly, To my acknowledgement, although Ning Que is young as he is, he did obtain some barbarians heads in the last few years, it should not be a problem.......to catch a few chicken.


    Tang Empire used strength and warfare to conquer and rose in power. They treated military honor and achievements above all else. Although the nobel guest in the camp is from an extremely high background, she has shamed the honor of the military so Ma Shi Xiang defended Ning Que by refuting the guests rebuke.


    The cold voice behind the camp was silent for a moment, and spoke again unhappily, The ability to kill makes a good guide?


    Ma Shi Xiangs replied even more humbly, Out of three hundred soldiers in Wei city, Ning Que is definitely not the one who killed the most enemy. However I can swear with my life - no matter how harsh and extreme the situation or battle, the last person standing..... Will be Ning Que.


    Then Ma Shi Xiang rose his head, smiling, Due to his contribution, he was awarded a recommendation letter from the military. He works hard himself, passed the first exam half a year ago. This trip to the capital, he will be reporting to the Academy.


    After hearing the word Academy, the noble guest in the camp was in a complete silence and never spoke again.


    After Ma Shi Xiang left the camp, the elder in the old robe slowly opened his eyes. The old and
    calm pupils shined with interest, he looked at the camp and smiled warmly, A soldier in a small and isolated town like this got into the Academy? Thats quite surprising. If so, then letting him be the guide is not a bad idea since his characteristics and ability is probably the best of the best.

    Even if I left the empire for a year, I would have never expected that the Academy are accepting such brute.


    Although her tone still showed distaste towards Ning Que, but her actual attitude had changed. At least the noble guest didnt reject him to be the guide of the group anymore. Only needing a mention of name to change the idea of a noble person, this simple placed named Academy is for sure not simple at all.


    The elder brought up another topic he was confused about, Earlier I went to see the words Ning Que wrote on the ground, he was copying the third chapter of Extreme Sense. His penmanship was simple yet lively, although he only used a tree branch, the words on the muddy floor contains a sense of sharpness, piercing almost like a blade. Clearly he mastered the Military Calligraphy...... I do wonder how he practices, and who his teacher is.


    That little soldier only had a small insight. It may seem unique at first, but now thinking it through he was only writing in some weird way. Mastered? at best he can only become a ghostwriter. The noble replied indifferently.


    The elder shook his head, The highlight is exactly what you said, unique. Im not an expert at calligraphy, but looking at his strokes of writing I can sense an element of metal and stone. This element rarely exists among calligraphists, perhaps a charmist***.


    Are you implying a Talisman of God? The noble was stunned for a second, but scoffed at her own idea, There are billion of people in the world, but only a few charmist living. Those expert are either hiding in the palace or training in temples. They spend their own life meditating to absorb the qi of nature, yet that youngster has no wave of qi around his body - for sure he is just a regular person. Even if he reads another fifty year of Extreme Sense he cannot enter the primary stage, speaking less of comparing him to those experts.


    The elder smiled a bit, but did not speak another word. Although he had the nobles respect because he is a Xiu Xingist, their social status differs greatly. The so-called respect was only due to his old age and ability, so it is best not to argue with the noble anymore.


    However, the elder did not agree with the noble in the camp. He has his own evaluation of the young man. In this world most people are unable to Xiu Xing. It is common to see none out of ten thousand people who entered the primary stage through meditating and absorbing the qi of nature. But if Ning Que is able to enter the Academy and study there, furthermore, if he was lucky enough to step up and enter the second floor, the uniquely weird calligraphy of his will help him for sure.


    Even if that boy couldnt Xiu Xing, just by using his calligraphy he can shock and surprise the teachers in the Academy and temples, or at least he can teach the famous calligraphists a thing or two.


    .................................................. ...............................................


    Ning Que put down the book, shook his head and walked out with disappointment and unwillingness on his face.

    The book called Extreme Sense, bought during his childhood on his way to a fair in Kai Ping with the military supply group. As the nobles maid said it was a common thing that anyone can get at anywhere. He clearly understood that, but he still didnt forget to recite and study it daily, treating it like the legendary Seven Scrolls of the Way that is being consecrated in one of the forbidden lands, the Great Sky Way.

    The books corner was already curled due to long time uses, if Sang Sang didnt use cotton thread to sew the back of the book, it would fall aparts immediately. Unfortunately, after many years, the books pages were badly thumbed, and its words and sentences were printed in Nings memory, yet Ning Que still could not find the entry to the Xiu Xing. Now, he could not even achieve Sensation, the simplest part mentioned in the book.


    At some point in the past he did feel disappointed and even despaired until he knew that most people in the world could not sense the Qi of nature. He felt much calmer knowing that he has this talent -- yes, those experts are not regular people, they are the special ones, because only the extremely rare experts could sense the Qi of nature, otherwise anyone could fly around Chang An, since there are so many Extreme Senses** in the world.

    Nonetheless Ning Que was really normal, or common. However, if you suddenly discovered a mountain of treasures, but you can only return with bare hands and if you suddenly discovered that Qi fully filled the world around you yet you cannot not even use it, how would you feel?

    .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ......


    The Wei City is such a poor place. The barbarians on the Great Plain were already scared of the Tang Emperor. They havent dared to fight us for years so I could not earn military exploits that fast. It would be perfect if I get to go to the Capital, why would I feel unwilling?


    Inside the dark military camp, Ning Que gave a salute to show respect to the general, then explained gratefully and honestly, Yet now its still far away from the registration date to the Academy, I think its not necessary for me to leave so early. In these years, even though I did not evolve into a much better person under the leadership of general, but I still learned a lot, otherwise now I would not have the chance to enter the Academy. I sincerely want to stay in Wei City and stay at your side for a few more days so I hear your lectures. Even if it is only for a few more days, I would like to spend my time with you.


    Ma Shi Xiang looked at the youngster, with beard slightly flowing, not sure if its because of the wind or the result of his irritation, said, Ning Que, since when did you become such a shameless person?


    Ning Que replied seriously, If the situation requires me to discard my honor and reputation, I am willing to throw it away without hesitation.


    Speak the truth, Ma Shi Xiangs facial expression became cold and asked seriously, why dont you want to serve as their guide?


    Ning Que remained silently for a long time, then whispered, General, that noble probably doesnt like me.


    The noble doesnt like you? Ma Shi Xiang scolded loudly, You seemed to forget your status. Keep in mind that you are still not a student of the Academy yet. As a soldier of the Empire, you have to obey higher rank officials commands, obey my command! Its none of your business whether the noble likes you or not! You only need to accept the command and then complete it!


    Ning Que did not reply, bowed slightly, looking down at a piece of grass growing out from the soil between his shoes. Remaining silent meant disagree.


    Ma Shi Xiang did not know what to do with this kid. What do you want to do? Why dont you follow their way to the Capital?


    Ning Que looked up to the general, spoke gratefully and seriously, I have seen their carriage. They must had encountered an assault on the Great Plain. Recently there was a spring famine and the chief of the Zuo Jing Tribe died last year. The skin of that nobles maid is somewhat dark, so I dare not to go with them.


    The carriages encounter of an assault, the famine of the Great Plain, the death of the Chief, and the dark skin of the maid. These details may seem unrelated, but as he linked them together, they formed up his reason of not leaving the Wei City with the noble.


    Ma Shi Xiang looked at him, sighed and asked, You realized who they are already?
