Chapter 31: Little dark room


The so-called ability to change the ‘Rules’, firstly required Gu Yan to have extremely strong desires and could be considered a superb ability. Only the creator of this world could have such a cheat ability with the ‘Rules’.

You should be reading this at

Before attempting to forcefully change the ‘Rules’, Gu Yan first put the big cat in his arms on the sofa, took off the space ring which contained the silver armor that he had been wearing on his right hand and gently pushed it under the big cat’s paws.


Although the system had said that it cannot determine exactly what will happen, but with his writer’s instincts, Gu Yan felt that the consequences couldn’t be far from an equivalent exchange. In the worst case scenario, he would be expelled from the current world he was in.


Moreover the enemy had not yet been completely eliminated, he had to leave the Heidis a weapon to protect himself.


In this position, the Heidis will surely notice it when he wakes up.


“Be good.”


Omitting the two syllabus, ‘Qiuqiu’, Gu Yan knows that if he said these two words aloud, the big cat would definitely try to open his eyes.


But that pair of pupils…Had already completely lost its sight.


Now the cat-like Heidis laid on the couch, as if in deep sleep.


You will get better.


Repeating this sentence in his heart over again, for the first time, Gu Yan could clearly feel the presence of a formless existence. It held no malice towards him and instead seemed extremely close.


This was the ‘Rules’.


“So this is…”


Gu Yan just want to ask his own system if this was all but before he could finish, the system’s mechanical voice already beeped and sounded without warning: [Initializing transfer, Counting down 3, 2 …]


At the last second of the countdown, the big cat lying on the couch finally moved a little and opened his eyes.


Below his claws was the space ring which he had given to the youth before. The Heidis glanced at it before he got up and looked around.




He was gone. Where was the person who had had just been holding him?


A mere three seconds was not enough for Gu Yan to react and just like the last time, he was still feeling slightly dizzy.




It was already too late to stop, Gu Yan could only watch as he used a ruler to whip the hands of a dark-haired child. Earlier, he had used a lot of force and a red mark quickly appeared.


Even if he did not have the five basic principles[1], Gu Yan still thinks he at the very least, has three. He had always been more patient and tolerant towards children, things like child abuse were completely out of his bottom line.


“This disciple did not do it.”


The child’s hands were still raised with his palm wide open. His head was lowered while his voice sounded like he was forcefully suppressing his emotions. He clearly did not do it but why was it that his shifu[2] only listened to others and then indiscriminately determined that it was his fault?


Shifu didn’t even listen to his explanation at all.


Controlling his expression and facing the lowered head of the child in front of him, Gu Yan momentarily did not know how to react.


This part of the story …


Compared to ordinary people, Gu Yan with his excellent memory could clearly remember the plot of his own novels and quickly determined his current position.


As much as he did not want to admit, Gu Yan found that he was indeed a cannon fodder once again and particularly one that died in an especially miserable way.


This was the world of a xianxia[3] novel he had written and the black-haired teenager in front of him was exactly this world’s ultimate villain boss. Gu Yan remembered that he had arranged a particularly miserable path for this child. He would be framed, despised and treated coldly by everybody…


Or he can be said to lead a life of abuse. His original vindictive[4] character setting would make it sure that after the child grew up, he would be completely blackened[5].


Leading the Demon clan and the Undead troops, he did not let off the entire cultivation realm and slaughtered his whole clan. Gu Yan had now crossed over into the body of a cannon fodder and his current identity was the shifu of this dark-haired youth.


To say that the villain boss blackened to such an extent, it was mainly because this shifu had played a big part in the entire blackening process.


According to the plot’s development, when this child grows up, the first person he will choose to take revenge on will also be his master … He would first pierce both his eyes and then let people throw him into the abyss. The abyss of the underworld was where the lowest level monsters resided.


These low-level monsters do not possess a single shred of intelligence. However, once a cultivator falls into their territory, it is like a big piece of meat falling from the sky.


Due to having cultivated for a long time, his cultivation was not low and having attained the strong physique of an immortal, this cannon fodder will not be able to die immediately despite being surrounded by a horde of demon beasts.


When the villain boss finally decided that he had watched enough and it was time to wrap things up, the villain who had finally grown up will drag this master of his out of the abyss before chopping off all his fingers and toes with a dagger, one by one.


However, because of his immortal like physique and having reached the Nascent Soul[6] stage, these body parts will grow back once more even after his bones had been scraped.


After a full month of torture, the villain boss who was finally ‘ tired of playing ‘, would then destroy his master’s cultivation before throwing him back into the abyss of the underworld to fend for himself.


His Nascent soul cultivation was destroyed. The ending of this cannon fodder who had turned into an ordinary person can be imagined.


Gu Yan: “…”. He was now this cannon fodder.


In the eyes of the dark-haired child, his shifu’s silence was representative of another meaning.

Raising his head, he looked at the cultivator dressed completely in white robes who was merely standing there with a cold expression on his handsome face. On this face, he never saw any other feelings.


Just like how this man despises him, the young but matured child also had little affection for his master, to the point where …


There was even hatred. However, he was currently not strong enough. Originally, he had wanted to repeat the sentence “this disciple did not do it”, but just as he looked up, there seemed to be something that suddenly melted away all the malice in his heart.


This feeling was so strange that he could not say a word.


Being watched by the pair of dark pupils, Gu Yan felt an explicable sense of familiarity, but it was also difficult to say why it was familiar. Recalling his cannon fodder character setting, Gu Yan chose to first control his facial expression, putting on a cold and aloof attitude.


Fortunately, he had a case of mild facial paralysis, so this was not very difficult.


“Go back and carefully reflect on your mistakes.” With a cold tone, the beautiful cultivator flicked his sleeves and turn around, obviously not wanting to say anything more.


The script was currently at where the dark-haired child had just been framed by his own clan’s disciples for stealing a spirit stone. Moreover, these disciples were not just one, but eight of them colluding together.


In the first place, the original soul of this body did not like his disciple very much and thus, under such circumstances, this cannon fodder did not bother to investigate, easily believing the lies of the group of disciples who had colluded together. Earlier on, he had used the ruler because of this.


If the plot continues to develop in this direction, then following the script, he would be sending this child to the sect’s dark punishment room.


The dark punishment room was in fact merely a small dark room. This cannon fodder also knows how to give this disciple a bigu pill[7] before shutting him for a whole month.


In the first place, it was cruel enough to shut a child in a small and dark room. However, at this time the child coincidentally awakened his demon beast bloodline. At this tender age, he was still a cub. After the awakening, his mind would become even more ignorant, like that of a child …


Imagine if a newborn cub were to be shut in a small and dark room for a full month, it would be strange if something didn’t go wrong. Realistically speaking, the blackening of this villain was not unreasonable


Firstly, ignoring how much this act of his was courting death, Gu Yan would never have committed such an atrocious act of abusing a child. From the author’s point of view, Gu Yan knows that the other side was really wronged, but he also could not destroy his character’s image to comfort this child. The only thing he could do was to let the other person return to his room to rest.


Then he quickly sent someone to find out the truth in order to give the child justice.


“Shifu… ” Seeing the youth flick his sleeves and turn around, Jiang Tan looked at the retreating figure. For some reason, his chest felt stuffy.


For no reason, he suddenly felt that it would be extremely unbearable if the youth were to hate him.

End of Chapter 31


T/n:[1] The five basic principles五好青年 refers to Good learning, good thinking, good work, good discipline, good style. Read more about this here:

[2] Shifu: Master. In cultivation stories, most cultivators will have a shifu(master) to guide them, sort of like a teacher/mentor.

[3]Xianxia修仙文: Cultivation and immortality novels

[4] 睚眦必报/vindictive: Strong desire for revenge

[5] Blacken: Turn completely evil

[6] Just a cultivation stage( I’m assuming it’s pretty darn high)

[7] Bigu pill: main components: peanuts, chestt kernels, walnuts, jujube, Chinese wolfberry, yam, Atractylodes, Huang and other drugs. Read more about this here:

T/n: So it seems that this arc is about master x disciple, the growing up trope(i dig it very much). Jiang Tan is the name of our little disciple.

So a couple of days I posted about the newest novel I would be translating and I realized I might have made too hasty of a decision. This novel (by the same author) is extremely similar to this one. I’ve decided that I would like to try something different so I would like to invite you guys to give me suggestions on what novel I should translate next hmm.

I will read through the summary and a few chapters before deciding then translate the summary of the top few and let you guys choose. Of course, the summary of Cub Raising Association will be included and if you’re interested, you can read about this here. I’ll leave cub raising in one of the few choices you guys can vote for so do share with me what you think!

Like I said before, TPWSTKMFFMI will still be my first priority~ Click for my latest post regarding Cub Raising Association and the latest novel I will be translating next: here

Also, I’ve set a new goal for my kofi!! Every 100% reached, I will post a full additional chapter on here(no password, its free for all! this is in addition to my normal update schedule~~) so show your support here~~kofi2.png (^^)

  2. I ask the BL God, please give me a HE and a lot of fluff.
    (´・ω・)ω・`) 好き💕
    /⌒ つ⊂⌒ヽ
    Thanks for the chapter! 💕💕💕


  3. Thanks for the chapter!!! I actually got choked up just thinking about this the other day.
    I love cultivation arcs, and disciple x master is one of my fave pairings.

    I also have a few suggestions for future projects. Since this is a world-hopping/system one these ones aren’t.

    Face Slapping the General

    I Became a Pretty and Flirtatious Sl*t Upon Waking Up
    (Don’t let the name turn you off it sounds great)

    The Law of All Things

    I put the spoiler links, and you’ll find raw links etc there too.

    These are all ones I would be interested in doing myself but I already have too many. I would love to see them picked up and you’ve done a great job. Whatever you choose, good luck.


  4. YAY~ New arc, thank you, dummytranslations~ 💖 As far as Cub Raising Association, I read your summary, and it’s still too early to say (until the first chapter is posted) if it’s something to love or not. ☺ But you should translate whatever makes you happy!

  5. I typed out like, the longest comment ever on my phone. And it disappeared into the ether (Sorry if you get repeats from me). Dang. That said, thank you for this wonderful chapter. I was thinking about the last one earlier and actually teared up a bit. That’s when you know it’s a great story.

    In other new, I am suuuper excited. I love xianxia worlds, and I especially love disciple x master pairing. Like, I’m so excited for this. I hope GY can give this lil guy some much needed love. Restore my heart.

    I have a few suggestions. Since this is a world-hopping/system novel, I chose a few titles that are not that. I have a (far too) long list of titles I would consider TLing in the future, because they sound so great. But right now I could not possibly do more. And there is no way in heck I will get to all of them. So, here’s hoping you might take one!!

    Face Slapping the General

    I Became a Pretty and Flirtatious Sl*t Upon Waking Up
    (Don’t let the name turn you off, it sounds great)

    The Law of All Things

    His Interstellar Unmarried First Pregnancy

    I included most spoiler thread links, but they should contain raw links. Also, I know that last one has a spoiler thread but I’m running out of steam and time. Heh. Anyways, whatever you end up picking up, I am looking forward to it. There are so many great novels out there and you do a great job. Thanks, as always, for all your hard work!!


    1. Thanks for your suggestions^^ They all seem really interesting and vastly different from whatever I’m currently translating. Not that they’re bad though:) The second and fourth ones are definitely something I wouldn’t go for(><sorry!) and I'll generally avoid deep (dark) stuff like angst but tragedies are alright. Fluff is the best (^_^) Will continue looking through the 1st and 3rd^^

      1. No need to be sorry!! If it didn’t appeal to you then it would certainly be difficult to make it through.

        Since you like fluff I have one more rec (It is cultivation world so could be pretty tough) but I think it sounds wonderful. I promise after this I will stop forcing my recommendations on you.

        Fengshui Master’s Cultivation Guide

        I tried taking out part of the link so it won’t disappear. You will probably have to c&p.

        And sorry. I’m slightly embarrassed at how much I’m posting here, but not enough to stop. But like, I’ll stop after this.


  6. Hi! Thank you for the wonderful chapter. I left like…longest comment ever. And I think it may have gone into your spam because of links I included (for suggestions?). In fact, there may be two in there….Maybe feel free to check and see and approve your favourite one? Usually it would show up and say pending approval, but that didn’t happen.

    I swear I’m not trying to sell something, or convert you to my religion (unless you count danmei, and then yes I’m guilty). Thanks for all your hard work.


  7. Thanks for the chapter! I hope you find a fluffy, sweet story you like.
    I like drama & epic stories, but these days, I really need “warm blankets on a cold day” stories, they are wonderful against stress.


  8. Cub… Cub…. Tiger? Lion? Panther? Leopard?
    Hopefully this arc ending would not leave me depressed and distressed…
    Thank you very much for the chapter~~!!!


  9. Why not make a poll Dummy-san, for the upcoming novel?

    Also I recommend this super cute novel where a hamster got transported into another world and became a humanoid hamster with human body complete with hamster ears and tail. The cute cowardly hamster tried to dig a hole to live in there to avoid the dangerous new world but the Snakey Prince ML found him (specifically Hamster MC played dead and ML brought him back to heal because he thinks Hamster MC is very cute) and brought him back to his lair, ML on the other hand is a Snake prince.
    It’s called ” A Guide For Raising A Natural Enemy”, you can find the summary here and in that link you find lots of recommended BL untranslated novels (btw those with stars near the title is already translated).

    Thank you for the chapter! I’M SO HAPPY!!!! Thank gosh, GY didn’t get into something very bad! Phew!


    1. I will make a poll after shortlisting a few and writing out their summaries! Regarding the stoey u mentioned, hssn’t it been picked up already? I recalled reading it just awhile ago:)


  10. Another one I found that’s like FOD is called, “Target Always Thinks That I Like Him”


    After the nth time of failing a marriage meeting, Xiang Han got himself a job: good treatment, high salary, free (space-time/world) traveling, food provided, house provided, partner/lover provided?!
    At he first he thought, except for having to travel into the body of a scum, a cannon fodder, a scheming fake white lotus; everything else is okay. Only later he realised, saving the target is also a problem. The imagination is neverending, even eating a cup of ramen is seen a way to rouse his (the target’s) interest!

    Xiang Han: This target is a no-go.
    Certain Target: Very good, you’ve already managed to rouse my interest.
    Xiang Han: Outside on the left side is an optometrist, go get your eyes healed! Additionally, this “lover provided” isn’t necessary.
    Certain Target: THIS certainly/especially is necessary!

    Tag: 1v1, ML is the same, MC=shou

    (update: btw in that wattpad link, Author decided to star the novels that are not translated sorry!)

    If you don’t want a system one, there’s another one I recommend, it’s called “The General’s Cat Always Wants To Climb Into My Bed”


    16 year old Shen Zhifan one day wakes up seven years in the future and finds out he’s become the nation’s male god.
    The type of male god that everyone in the world wants to marry.
    However, because the General (who lives next door)’s fiancee fell in love with Shen Zhifan, the General absolutely hates Shen Zhifan guts.

    Shen Zhifan has always thought of the General as his Male God and so his heart feels very stifled.
    *My Male God has become my rival in love. Every day his ice cube face looks like he desperately wants to hack me to death.*
    *Mr General, I feel nothing for your fiancee. I have already long given up any hope for love. Right now, I just want to get rich.*

    Luckily, the general’s cat really likes him, and always wants to… climb into his bed.

    1. Ice Cube Face, Dead Mensao, Cat General Gong x Good Looking Shou
    2. When Gong transforms into Cat Form, he automatically becomes a Blue Ragdoll Cat – His cat form is so devastatingly gorgeous that if you don’t buy him you’re not human. (Google image search 蓝双布偶猫 blue ragdoll cat)
    3. Sweetness is justice. Both sides secretly in love with each other. Senselessly sweet. Dead Logic

  14. I swear I could not stop crying during this chapter for the life of me, I thought I was fine because I made it through the last chapter… (I’m sorry I know that’s wimpy but he’s just going to be left all alone in that big room surrounded by the clothing of his loved one, despite the fact that nothing really remains of him any more. It’s just too sad for my mind to handle)
    And despite how sad it was I still love it so thanks for translating!! 🙂 T.T

  15. Ah, I love this novel so much!

    To suddenly be thrown into a new world like that hurt a bit, I mean, I did even get to grieve before meeting such a scene.

    But the author never disappoints! I already love this world and I love the MC ML dynamics, they give me such a nice feeling, hm, maybe because the ML is always so innocent in his thinking. 🤔

    Anyway, keep up the good work! I’m so thankful for it! ♥️♥️♥️


  16. Hell, I didn’t even cry even though the MC in Heroic Death System dies every single time. But this? Gu Yan didn’t even die but I can’t help feeling sad! This feels more tragic than death! 😭😭😭
