Prologue

“Ben zuo[1] is an immortal being. Although the Three Realms are great and the universe is endless, there was never someone who had the ability to compete against me.” Reclining quietly in the shadows above the lava, he grabbed lumps of brimming hot red molten lava playfully and said, “On the basis of you, an ordinary woman, wished to chop me down with a double-edge sword?”

An imposing murderous energy was tightly attached to a cold long double-edge sword. The woman who held the sword stood in mid-air, and the corners of her mouth that curved slightly upward were more devilish than the insolent Mozun (Demon King), ” Dong Fang Qing Cang[2], you don’t dare to fight? ”

“Hahahaha! Not dare?” Dong Fang Qing Cang turned his head upward to the sky and laughed loudly. The hot lava in the Dong Fang Qing Cang’s palm suddenly burned upward, and the raging flames in the air condensed to form a burning red double-edged sword. The surging arrival of the burning odor caused the woman’s robes to jolt, “Chi De [3] woman, those useless bunch from the Heavenly Realm made you the Heaven and Earth War God. Has dared to clamor at ben zuo, albeit on the assumption that you do have a bit of skill.”

Dong Fan Qing Cang narrowed his eyes and gently chuckled. He stood up with his silver white hair that reached to his ankles. With each step, the volcano under his foot seemed to fear him as it started to tremble and sway.

“It just so happened that today was dull.” Dong Fang Qing Cang said, and lifted up his wrist. The raging flames of his sword covered half of his face and showed off a demonic energy (qi) within his phoenix eyes more prominently, “Allow ben zuo to test you with one try.”

“Demon King.” Chi De woman held the cold sword within her hands in defense form, “Underestimating the enemy is a fear of those who battle.”

Dong Fang Qing Cang grinned, “Only the weak has fear.” His bloody eyes flashed coldness. His eyeteeth was sharper than any human and was embedded with raging flames. He was extremely furious, “Ben zuo never has fear.”

The Ancient Demon King battled against Chi De woman in an all-out war, causing the heaven and earth to lose colors while days and nights were turned upside down. Even the stars and time seemed to be affected by such disturbance. But it was through that war, the rampant Demon King of the Three Realms lost to Chi De woman’s sword. Since then, Chi De woman God of War’s fame spreads far and wide and Dong Fang Qing Cang  suffered serious injuries after that battle. Eventually, he was beheaded by the combined efforts of the deities and buddhas.

Meanwhile, the people of the Demon Realm have been driven into Jiu You[4] barren land; henceforth, it’s difficult for them to rise up again.

“Is Dong Fang Qing Cang dead?”

“The Demon King is immortal, he cannot go into the reincarnation cycle. His soul does not vanish or disperse, and when there is a befitting opportunity, he will return.”

The orchid in the pot shook her leaves, “When will he return? … ah master … I’m afraid of death.”

“Will not let him return.” Siming picked up a pen to write fate, “I, God of Destiny, along with the present God of War Moxi, the little brother guards that watches Nantianmen[5] ,and the little water fairies that helped me water you will not let him return. So you can relax a bit, will not die ah, be obedient. ”

After listening to Siming who lightly touched upon a part of the ancient times distant past, the little orchid cannot imagine in any way that one day she would really see the Demon King resurrects and return to the Three Realms. She did not think that she would end up greeting face to face this big ancient demon, and watched helplessly.

The thing that mostly made her smashed head and also unexpected was that —

One day, she was to use the old fart with boundless magic, doing all kinds of evil monstrous demon’s … body …

Author (Jiu Lu Fei Xiang)’s words: A new open pit, open pit la ~

“It is the story of Siming’s little orchid~

When finish writing Siming, I had the idea to write about the little orchid, but for various inspiration blocks [had been really lazy] did not write – now that I took the courage, finished outlining the whole story of the small orchid ~

So, as you can see, the male is the great, cool, ruthless, violent, strutting, tyrannical Demon King la ~

My writing style,just as in the past, is brisk and light ~ I hope you guys like it la~ bows, xoxo**~”

    1. Hello sutekii~ I’m not sure whether to continue translating this as I am waiting for the actual Viet translated book to hit shelf and hopefully some kind soul will post the published version online by July or something xD I’m still trying to finish the story. I’ll probably try translating other novels’ first chapters to see which one holds my interest or is easier to translate. Thanks for reading ~

  2. TBH, it looks good, but i am put of with the damn unnecessary bomgsfhgsg words that have no meaning whatsoever to the English reader and loses ALL meaning after 3chaptes when the definition is forgotten and only serves to undermine the quality work.

    1. Bomgsfhgsg? Are you referring to the in between notes? You can choose to ignore them. I personally don’t like translating character names verbatim. Aside from Dong Fang Qing Cang who is the main male lead and Little Orchid, I don’t ask my readers to remember other character names. I also do capitalize character names. The notes are additional info on the character name meanings. As for other words, mo zun is demon king which is the title of the novel itself. I do add parentheses or brackets to indicate that it means demon king. But if you’re put off by it then there’s not much that I can do.
