This preview is here to announce that rhyein has gone on an indefinite translating haitus. His exact words: I’m not going to be able to spare time to do translating for a while. You two should go ahead without me.
I can’t sit still through an entire translation unless someone is watching or waiting for me to finish translating/editing so releases will probably be slower than the usual pace. Neko lives on the other side of the world
so I can’t make him suffer with me the way I make rhyein suffer with me. I mean watch me as I translate or edit his stuff in real time. It was motivating to know that someone was watching my back or spying on me to see whether or not I was slacking off and wag the “shame on your finger” at me accordingly.
I didn’t tell anyone this (aside from rhyein) but my motivation had already decreased from when people started asking for spoilers. It made me feel like there was no point in trying to bring out a quality translation if people just want spoilers and summaries. And now rhyein went poof. I think I have other stuff to say but it’s late so I’m heading off to bed… No, I’m not dropping ATG if anyone was wondering…
No matter how big or small the courtyards were, the Xiao Clan had a total of around two hundred thirty three courtyards. The courtyards were all arranged irregularly and most of them looked almost exactly the same. If we don’t even mention the Xiao Sect members who came yesterday and only talk about people who have already been living here for ten or even twenty days, even they would not necessarily remember all the courtyard’s positions, nor would they accurately connect them with their owner. This was why Xiao Che was certain that Xiao Jiu had not even gone to Xiao Lingxi’s courtyard…. Even if he deliberately went there to check it out yesterday, he could not possibly find it again in such a short time. He should have been faking his search and instead just randomly walked around in a circle for a while until he came back with the box containing the Profound Opening Powder.
Xiao Jiu’s silence and the dramatically worsening complexions of Xiao Kuangyun and Xiao Yunhai would even let fools begin to understand what was going on.
Xiao Yunhai flawlessly answered Xiao Che’s first question… yet he did not know that it was only just a decoy. The second question that came immediately after made them sink into a deep hole. As for the third question…. it was virtually a resounding slap to their face.
