    Thanks Foxs! I noticed a couple of times you spelled roof as rood, I do it myself a lot too hitting the key next to the one I want. I'm starting to get this feeling that SkyWalker might just get his wish ... I guess we will see in the next chapter segment!

    Default Book 5 - Chapter 7, Part 1

    HPC, Ysabel, Jaya, Chua, Anh, Laoren, Komeng, you are welcome. DongBin, Sky ... (no comment) Ari, you wish, huh? Drak, what Xu Xiong said. Akolaw, that's why I said good analysis. George, aw, c'mon ... I did a search on the last three chapters, I only found one. But you are right, I should be more careful. I promise it will happen again ... Bocah, too much bloodshed already ...


    Book 5 Chapter 7 Subduing Enemy on Snowy Ground

    Side-by-side Xu Ziling and Shen Luoyan went out of the city. The former saw the marker Kou Zhong left at the city gate, so he knew that Kou Zhong and Susu already departed safely. His mood improved, he could not help the hostility in his heart toward Shen Luoyan decreasing a little.

    The two of them silently unleashed their foot technique, very soon they left the city of Xingyang far behind in the vast and indistinct wind and snow.

    When they reached the top of a hill, Xu Ziling stopped. He took out the book from his bosom, and without the slightest hesitation handed it over to her.

    Shen Luoyan flipped through it, and after verifying that it was indeed her roster, she put it inside her pocket. Sighing softly, she said, If my guess is correct, Xu Shiji will not let you off just because I gave you my promise. Therefore, unless you are fully confident that you are able to break away from Zheng Zongs pursuit, you must by all means avoid meeting with Kou Zhong and Susu right away; otherwise it would be the moment the three of you lose your lives.

    Xu Ziling was greatly puzzled, Why did you tell me that? Zhong Shao and I are already aware that your Wagang Army might go back on your word; but we did not expect that you would really be willing to let us go.

    Shen Luoyans pretty face blushed slightly; she said softly, I owe you so much, I ought to brag a little bit that I am also a good person. However, even though you heard Zheng Zongs name, you were not the least bit surprised. Evidently you have someone who already disclosed this information to you; no wonder you already planned in advance.

    Xu Ziling was secretly terrified; this woman was extremely intelligent and crafty, the more they talked, the more she would deduce their actual situation.

    While pondering how he could leave as soon as possible, Shen Luoyan looked deep into his eyes, and then lightly said, Im sure well meet again someday!

    Xu Ziling mused, Who wants to meet with you again someday? But without saying a word, he turned around and ran down the hill.

    Just before entering the forest at the foot of the hill, he looked back, but Shen Luoyan already disappeared without any trace.

    Xu Ziling turned around and ran back to the place where he parted ways with Shen Luoyan. Not too long afterwards he found the marker left by Kou Zhong, i.e. a small twig indicating the direction they were fleeing; there were also seven small pebbles, indicating he should go that way for more than seven li.

    Xu Ziling messed up the marker, looked up to the heavens, and just as expected, he did not see Zheng Zongs magical bird. This moment the snow was swirling heavily in the air; he had already guessed that it would be difficult for Zheng Zong to follow their trail on horseback.

    Just as he was about to leave, he seemed to hear Shen Luoyans tender voice shouting from about half a li to the west. Without even thinking Xu Ziling went at full speed toward that direction.

    Following the shout was a series of clashing qi noise like a muffled thunder. Xu Ziling unleashed the true qi in his body to its limit; he flew like a streak of shooting star splitting the snowstorm blanketing the big earth.

    Since Yun Yuzhen taught them the Bird Crossing Technique, they had experienced countless setbacks, attempts, and hard work to get better. But because they had eventually succeeded in training the Secret to Long Life, in turn their fantastic true qi could be applied in qinggong, so that each one of them was able to come up with amazing, beyond compare, shenfa. [Translators note: this is rather hard to translate without wordy explanation, basically it is a pose or motion of the body specifically in martial art.]

    Because of different interests and focus in developing their lightness skill, their qinggong style was also vastly different from each other. When they started training the Bird Crossing Technique, Kou Zhong loved to observe the marine ecosystem of swimming and cruising fish; therefore, automatically he developed movements mimicking the best of variety fish motion, full of vivacious postures. Still as a maiden, moving like a fugitive.

    Xu Ziling, on the other hand, loved to observe the trajectory of all kinds of bird flying in the air; therefore, naturally the postures he adopted were full of soaring-bird and diving-falcon style. Like a heavenly steed soaring across the sky, difficult to trace its track.

    Supporting them to attain their ideal body movement [shenfa, see above] was the true qi coming from diligent practice of the Secret to Long Life, which grew and multiplied without an end within their bodies.

    Their pursuit of lightness skill style was actually matching their inner true qi. According to the five-element principle: fish is water and bird is fire. The true qi within Kou Zhongs body was cold; while Xu Zilings was hot. Hence Kou Zhong imitating fish and Xu Ziling copying birds was a good fit like seamless heavenly clothes.

    When they were injured by Zhai Rang, the two boys applied their inner power to heal each other, accidentally generating heat in the midst of cold, and cold in the midst of heat. Under the blending of Yin and Yang, it was no longer like before, where a lone Yang could not last and exhaustion was an endless recurring condition.

    The most noticeable change was in the current utilization of the qinggong.

    Hence the reason this moment as Xu Ziling unleashed his shenfa, he felt that his true qi circulated endlessly. The more he ran, the faster he was, until finally even he himself was a bit scared.

    The sound of fighting suddenly ceased. Xu Ziling was alarmed, thinking that based on Shen Luoyans martial art skill, unless she was facing an opponent of Du Fuweis caliber, she should not have any problem defending herself; why was that within more or less ten moves she seemed to be subdued by the enemy?

    If that was the case, wouldnt it mean that the opponent was of his old dads caliber? Could it be that the Shadow Assassin Yang Xuyan has come?

    Thinking about that, his heart shivered in fear. Instantly the true qi within his body from clear turned murky, from pure it became mixed; from flying in the air he suddenly dropped down to the ground. Hastily he took a sharp breath to dispel his apprehension toward Yang Xuyan.

    Hastening the movement of inner breathing in his body, he focused his heart and mind, and immediately entered the moon in the well realm. His five senses sensed the world around him, nothing could escape his detection.

    Not only he was able to feel every single snowflake falling onto his body, he could even hear the sound of snowflakes touching each other within several zhang radius from him.

    The heaven and the earth lit up; the wind, the snow, everything sounded very clear in his hearing.

    This unprecedented amazing feeling only lasted for a blink of an eye; just as it happened suddenly, it also disappeared quite suddenly.

    Shocked, Xu Ziling dropped down on his knees on the snowy plain, thoughts flashed in the speed of light in his mind. He gained a sudden enlightenment; he knew that his fear of Yang Xuyan has inadvertently stimulated the self-sufficient treasure-trove within his body; unexpectedly he rose to another level of new realm.

    While he was scared and delighted at the same time, a sparkling object on the snow caught his attention.

    Xu Ziling gathered his thought. Springing up from the snowy ground, he walked over to pick up the object; to his amazement, it was Shen Luoyans soul snatching hairpin. He could not help but was shocked.

    It appeared that Shen Luoyan was really in danger so that even her golden hairpin fell on the ground.

    Xu Ziling hastened the circulation of his inner breathing; he drove away all shock and anxiety from his heart, and then launching his lightness skill, he searched along the vast snowy ground. A short while later, he did find some footprints that were already obscured by the falling snow.

    These footprints, one after another, pointed to a dense forest in the southeast direction, each footprint was separated by almost eight zhang distance [80ft/25m], the evenness and accuracy of the footprints was quite shocking.

    Just from the distance it was quite clear that this persons martial art skill was really high, almost to the unimaginable level.

    Xu Ziling asked himself: under normal circumstances, on solid ground, if he gave everything he had, perhaps he would be able to cover the same distance in one jump. But absolutely not on soft, snowy ground. It was not something that he could accomplish alone, much less if he had to carry someone else on his back.

    However, it was not enough reason for him to give up rescuing Shen Luoyan. After taking a sharp intake of breath, he swiftly chased forward.

    The snowstorm attacked him head-on, giving him the full taste of frigid wind and painful snow.

    He could see the feeble light from Xingyang City painting the distant horizon on his left, amplifying the desolate feeling the snowstorm already given him.

    Xu Ziling had just entered the fringe of the snowy forest when his acute hearing already caught some kind of strange noise.

    It was the sound of a woman panting and moaning.

    Xu Ziling immediately realized what was going on. A righteous anger welled up in his heart, yet his mind was still incomparably calm. Carefully but swiftly he moved toward the source of the noise.

    The perpetrator must be someone who has been lurking in Xingyang City, secretly watching their fight against the Wagang Army. And then taking advantage of the moment when he and Shen Luoyan split up, he made his move and launched a surprise attack. This person was not satisfied just by obtaining the roster, he still had to subject Shen Luoyan to his beastly atrocity.

    Fast like a ghost Xu Ziling ducked to the left and slipped to the right in the snowy forest; he tiptoed on the snowy ground, so that he did not create any noise at all. He even severed his mouth and nose breathing, and was only using the continuous internal qi to breath.

    His eyes brightened, he was able to utilize the faint glow of the snow in the night, which average person would not be able to see, so that in that pitch-black forest he was able to distinguish objects and faintly see the fluorescent green of the snowy wonderland.

    The sound of heavy breathing was becoming clearer.

    Moments later, deep in the snowy forest a tall, majestic figures back caught Xu Zilings eyes. This mans shoulder was particularly broad, yet his waist was surprisingly slim; his long hair was draped over his shoulder, giving others a memorable impression.

    This moment he was pressing Shen Luoyans body against the trunk of a big tree. His pair of hands slipped inside the beautys half-opened clothes, voraciously fondling her breasts.

    Xu Ziling sent his power to increase his vision; he saw Shen Luoyans face was beet red, her elegant eyes were tightly shut, her mouth was also tightly closed, the expression on her pretty face was a mixture of pain and contradiction, with tears across her whole face.

    Every fondling of the mans hand brought a shiver over her entire body, plus a moan and a gasp.

    I do that a lot my self Foxs, especially after I got my replacement keyboard, years latter and I still do it ... really sucks when I have to write code for my classes or when I type the wrong word and spellcheck doesn't catch the mistake. All I have to say about this chapter is Thanks, and well now ... I thought she already sold her body along with her mind ...

    Yet, since (and because) the xi in wǔxi (武俠) literally means chivalrous person ; knight-errant I've been, in short, socialised towards being pained by consciousness of violations to all human rights, especially injustice to women (even fictional accounts).

    With that in mind, I'm honestly kinda trying to come-to-terms-with, let's say, Jin Yong's Condor trilogy (which were my 1st contact with this genre) by wanting to know a more satisfying story... Easiest example, both Zhang Wuji and Zhou Zhiruo are very unsatisfactory ?

    And regarding Shen Luoyan, for readers-in-the-know, there's that scene in The Return of the Condor Heroes

    Thanks for the translation. Btw, I took a peek at the raw chinese sources. Are there really 60 books in total?

    Thx foxs.

    As a big SLY fan, it was hard to read the last part. Thankfully XZL came to the rescue! I'm liking XZL more and more.

    徐 中 銳, I haven't read Return of the Condor Heroes yet, but for the longest time I was kind of comparing her to the cortesian chick in A step in to the past, they kind of gave the same vibe for a bit, especially when she was playing with them and it kind of made me look at SLY in a not very good light as I kept expecting a betrayal. I guess we will just have to wait for the next half and see what happens, my guess the dudes dead right off ...

    Thanks foxs!

    I wonder how Xu Ziling will deal with that guy, since even SLY could not do anything! ;o
    Maybe Kou Zhong came back and help? Maybe some miracle happen? Because I don't see how they can get out of there alive ):
