ASV Chapter 34: Shattered Glass Heart

Then Qin Kaiyi walked up without any hesitation, and then he fell, and then he died, and then the book was finished–that was impossible.

The truth was that Qin Kaiyi was actually magical, and went all the way to the high platform where the Rain-Soaked Bell was placed!! Not only was Tang Shayun dumbfounded, even Zi Yangpei was full of surprise.

“Aiyah, how could I have the nerve.” Reaching to take the Rain-Soaked Bell floating in the air, Qin Kaiyi’s brazen face blushed: “Is it actually that I’m the protagonist of this book…”

“…” Zi Yangpei.

“…” Shen Feixiao.

“…” Tang Shayun.

Everyone unanimously showed a contemptuous expression for Qin Kaiyi’s narcissism…

“Now that you got it, come back.” Zi Yangpei did not expect that Qin Kaiyi could get the Rain-Soaked Bell so easily. He frowned slightly, and then said, “I advise you not to play tricks.”

“… you think too much.” Qin Kaiyi stood on the high platform and looked down at Zi Yangpei. Without a doubt, the moment he got the Rain-Soaked Bell, Zi Yangpei’s attitude changed subtly.

“The original work did not develop like this ah.” Tang Shayun was still sitting on the ground dumbly, seeming to have been shocked stupid by the exploding plotline. She looked at Qin Kaiyi in the distance and suddenly her expression changed greatly. Pointing at Qin Kaiyi, she shouted, “Did you actually transmigrate? Who are you? What did you do??”

Qin Kaiyi looked at Tang Shayun’s fierce reaction and was helpless. He couldn’t tell Tang Shayun that he was the author of this book, but the plot did change a lot. If it developed according to the novel, there should be a scene of large-scale fighting, and Shen Feixiao would get the Rain-Soaked Bell on the high platform with the help of the sable and Tang Shayun, and then escape the chase and safely leave the secret realm. But the butterfly effect was terrible. Not to mention that Qin Kaiyi caused Shen Feixiao to enter the Treasure Pavilion in advance, Tang Shayun’s extermination of the Lingshan Sect disciples greatly affected the subsequent development as well.

So the fight was gone, the sable was gone, Tang Shayun was stupidly sitting there, and Qin Kaiyi was inexplicably the first to get to the Rain-Soaked Bell. Was this a benefit to being the author? Qin Kaiyi muttered to himself internally when he got the Rain-Soaked Bell. He didn’t take the Rain-Soaked Bell of his own volition. Everything in this world didn’t hold much value to him. Getting Shen Feixiao on the right track and leaving to go home early was his real goal. 

“Come back quickly, if you don’t want your son to die here like this.” Zi Yangpei’s expression was very indifferent, and one couldn’t see his usual smile. He didn’t hesitate to snatch Shen Feixiao to his side and grab his neck: “You know I’m not kidding.”

“Don’t do it…” Qin Kaiyi was about to say something, when he heard the sound of the originally missing Yan Gu in his sea of knowledge, “Don’t go over there!! Rain-Soaked Bell can’t be taken by Zi Yangpei, if he gets it, the first thing he will do is kill you all!”

“What should I do, I can’t let him kill Shen Feixiao!” Qin Kaiyi knew in his heart that Zi Yangpei was not a good person, but now that Shen Feixiao was in his hands, Qin Kaiyi was helpless. 

“Why not? Isn’t it just a little Taoist in the foundation period, you even have the Rain-Soaked Bell, why should you pay with your own life for him?” Yan Gu obviously couldn’t understand Qin Kaiyi’s thought processes, and he spared no effort to persuade him: “You have the Rain-Soaked Bell, even cultivators in the Core Formation period will have difficulty. Why bother to stick with this old monster Zi Yangpei? “

“No.” Qin Kaiyi flatly refused–Shen Feixiao’s life was connected with his life ahhhh!!!

“… Is Shen Feixiao really your son?” Yan Gu said quietly after a long silence.

“…” Qin Kaiyi was at a loss for words, and said helplessly only after a while: “I say, what nonsense are you thinking about all day and night?”

“Then why don’t you go? Why why why!!!” Yan Gu began to act shamelessly: “I don’t want to put on that old face of Zi Yangpei’s ahhhh, it must be full of wrinkles!!!”

“…” Qin Kaiyi ignored the convulsing Yan Gu.

“Hurry down.” Seeing that Qin Kaiyi didn’t move, Zi Yangpei’s face became more gloomy. He pinched Shen Feixiao’s neck tightly and narrowed his eyes slightly: “If you don’t want him to die like this here. “

“… Okay.” Qin Kaiyi came to terms and then slowly walked down the path.

Zi Yangpei frowned and seemed to be afraid of something, watching Qin Kaiyi go down but not moving forward himself.

Just as Qin Kaiyi was about to step off the small path, Shen Feixiao, who was restrained by Zi Yangpei, suddenly viciously bit Zi Yangpei’s hand. At feeling this pain, Zi Yangpei pushed Shen Feixiao to the side——

Sometimes matters unfold in the most coincidental of ways. Zi Yangpei was standing close to the edge of the platform, and with a hard push, Shen Feixiao directly fell to the edge. The staggering Shen Feixiao then fell below into the boiling magma.

Qin Kaiyi’s brain short-circuited at that moment. He didn’t know what kind of reaction he showed. However, after he had reacted, he realized–he was actually falling, and the Shen Feixiao who was supposed to fall had a face full of despair, kneeling down at the edge of the stone platform and wailing at him.

Qin Kaiyi’s mind became very calm. He felt that time slowed down suddenly. He somehow couldn’t make the hand seal that could have saved his life. He looked at Shen Feixiao who had tear stains all over his face, and had only one thought left–this is really abusive! (T/N: 坑爹, lit: pit father. Originated from online gaming–letting your teammate fall into a pit. Then if you let your father fall into a pit, basically you even dare to cheat your father.) This way of dying from being cooked alive by lava was really too dismal!!

Qin Kaiyi closed his eyes desperately, ready to be burnt to ashes.

“Hey, stupid, open your eyes.” Yan Gu’s disdainful voice sounded in his ear. Qin Kaiyi was stunned–is he not dead?

“I told you to open your eyes, do you think you don’t have to die if you close your eyes?” Yan Gu’s tone was very, very dissatisfied.

“… I’m not dead?” Qin Kaiyi opened his eyes suddenly and found that he actually stood floating in a completely strange place. This place was a bit like a stone house, but the surrounding walls are all covered with dense red runes.

“… Where is this?” Qin Kaiyi asked, confused.

“The place under the magma.” Yan Gu lazily said: “You don’t think you would be burned to death by magma?”

“…” Qin Kaiyi stopped talking.

“Ha ha ha ha… Sure enough, you’re a moron. You have me. As long as it’s not the first-class red lotus fire, you’d be difficult to burn to death.” Yan Gu proudly said: “Grateful?”

“Thank you.” Qin Kaiyi’s tone was unusually sincere. He really didn’t want to die so inexplicably. “How are Shen Feixiao and the rest?”

“Dead.” Yan Gu’s tone was lazy.

“… You trick ghosts.” (T/N: meaning his words are so fake that even ghosts won’t believe it). As long as the system did not prompt him, Qin Kaiyi knew that nothing must have happened to Shen Feixiao. He said with a black expression: “What happened to Zi Yangpei and Shen Feixiao?”

“It’s collapsed.” Yan Gu’s wording was such that one couldn’t make heads nor tails of it.

“What’s collapsed?” Qin Kaiyi looked at Yan Gu suspiciously.

“You took the Rain-Soaked Bell, so the Hidden Treasure Pavilion has even less energy to support itself. Starting from when you left that place, the Treasure Pavilion began to collapse.” Yan Gu explained: “Although Zi Yangpei is not afraid of this, your son shouldn’t be able to escape.” 

“…” Qin Kaiyi had no words; he didn’t expect circumstances to develop like this.

“How do we get out?” Although he was very worried about the safety of Shen Feixiao, according to Yan Gu’s conjecture, his priority was to  leave this place. Shen Feixiao had the protagonist’s halo on his head, he shouldn’t have too much of a problem… right?

“Who said we were going out.” Yan Gu gave Qin Kaiyi a strange look.

“Don’t go out here and wait to die,” Qin Kaiyi said in a not-so-nice tone.

“You promised to help me go to the ‘injury’ door to get something,” Yan Gu said angrily. “You didn’t forget did you?”

“… but this place is going to collapse.” Qin Kaiyi stated this fact silently.

“Even if it collapses we still have to go!” Yan Gu was dissatisfied: “Would I, Yan Gu, let you die here?”

Maybe. Qin Kaiyi sniffed, and then suddenly remembered something, his face whitening: “What about the Rain-Soaked Bell?”

“Ah?” Yan Gu froze for a moment, then said: “Didn’t you give it to Shen Feixiao?”

“… When did I give it?” Qin Kaiyi expressed that he completely couldn’t think of when he had taken this action. 

“When you threw him up, you also tucked it into his clothes.” Yan Gu’s expression was subtle: “I was wondering why you were so generous… It turned out to be an unconscious move.”

“…” The corners of Qin Kaiyi’s lips twitched, and then he comforted himself in his heart. Don’t be angry, don’t be angry–anyway, the Rain-Soaked Bell was Shen Feixiao’s. Whether he gave it earlier or later he would still have to give it, and he gave it now… your mom, casually handing it over like that was still uncomfortable! 

“Don’t get caught up, let’s go.” Yan Gu calculated the time: “It’s not too late to go to the injury door to help me take that thing. If we dally any longer everything may just collapse.”

“Okay.” Qin Kaiyi reluctantly said: “Then go, you lead the way.”

“What useless words, if I don’t lead the way then could you?” Yan Gu rolled his eyes: “Just look at you with all your blathering, can you really be counted on at all?”

Qin Kaiyi looked at that face that was the same as his own, and deeply felt that if he did not let this guy Yan Gu change his face, he would have split personality disorder like that other guy Zi Yangpei! 

As they spoke, Qin Kaiyi followed Yan Gu’s instructions and headed towards the injury door. Although he felt concerned for Shen Feixiao, it was obviously more important for him to help Yan Gu get his thing and then leave—who asked Yan Gu to know the structure of this place best? Without this guide, Qin Kaiyi estimated that there was an 80% chance that he would die in the Hidden Treasure Pavilion.

Not having the protagonist aura really turned out to be a big problem… wu (T/N: expresses agreement or surprise), actually… he didn’t know how that transmigrator Tang Shayun was doing right now.
