[Disciple] Chapter 44

Chapter 44: The Protagonist’s Cheat is Tricking You

Under the guidance of a famous master, as though he had activated a hack, Xiao Yi’s cultivation climbed up quickly. Although in the middle of it, there were a few reckless people who came to look for trouble, they were all oppressed by his strength, and unintentionally, he gained the hearts of many girls. In the later stages of his life, he achieved even more impressive feats, such as fighting against heretic practitioners, killing devils, and conquering secret realms. Every single time, when he looked as though he was at a great disadvantage, he would always turn the tides, either by suddenly awakening some unique ability, and then, with a loud roar, eliminating the opposing party in the name of the moon, or, by having certain girls who could not live on without him, extend their helping hands in the nick of time. And because of these experiences, he gained even more opportunities.

In the end, he even unintentionally gathered all five sentient Spirits of metal, wood, water, fire, and earth, and summoned Shenlong! Oh, that’s wrong. He successfully ascended! He even defeated those geniuses with mutated Spirit Veins, including the Lightning Spirit Vein, in one fell swoop, becoming the first person in the cultivation world to ever ascend in just two thousand years. Those people who were to cultivate in the future, could only look up to his buttocks.

When Zhu Yao saw the late stages, she could not help but retort at this dream of hers. The Xiao Yi in this dream was still rather inspirational at the early stages, raising his cultivation and walking on the road to the summit of life. However, at the later stages, it completely changed, from working hard in his cultivation, it turned into him working hard in flirting with girls.

As long as the girl had a relationship with him, she would always end up falling under his robes.

Xiao Yi even began to go on harem mode. Princess of the Demon World, Queen of the Human Realm, martial sisters of the same sect, the wild flowers along the road, anyway, as long as the girls were to see him, they would obtain some form of sickness as though “they had not seen a man for thousands of years”, and would cling onto him even if they had to die. And, they were even able to get along harmoniously with each other, every single of them would feel extremely uncomfortable if they did not love him. And, his definition towards love was, if you love me, give me n-play¹. The hell, this was simply a miracle. Among them, even that Demigod Sovereign master of his was included.

When Zhu Yao watched this, she felt like calling this a “brain-dead film”.

In the end, obviously, Xiao Yi formed a gigantic harem. And, when this Xiao Yi was a late-stage Demigod, he especially stayed in the cultivation world for a thousand years, all for the sake of waiting for a few dozen of his most favored girlies, to ascend together.

As for the things that happened after his ascension, Zhu Yao were unable to see them. She thought the dreamscape would end here, however, the scenery in front of her changed, from viewing the rays of light due to the countless ascensions, her vision returned to the cultivation world.

After the legendary Xiao Yi ascended, the cultivation world did not welcome an era of calm. During his ascension, the five cheat-like divine Spirits, followed him to the High Realm as well. With the cultivation world’s loss of the five spirits’ administration, the spiritual energy in the world continued to disappear, and they could not be gathered.

The ones that had the most obvious impact were all the spiritual plants. Without the administration of the Wood Spirit, the spiritual spirits were unable to receive wood spiritual energy, and began to wilt. In less than a hundred years, even the materials for the most common Heart-Raising Pill could no longer be found in the cultivation world. And for the practitioners, because they were no longer able to take in spiritual energy into their bodies, forget about ascension, their cultivation could no longer be raised.

Yet, the human realm was the most unfortunate. Due to the loss of the five Spirits, water could no longer moisturize anything, even regular plants were affected, wilting to death. Fire could no longer counter bacteria, the mortals were infected with strange diseases, and a large number of them died. The earth no longer had life, the soil was no longer able to grow crops. Food were unnecessary to practitioners, however, without food, it was a fatal blow to mortals. Hence, famine was widespread, and the world was littered with corpses.

In just a short span of a few thousand years, not even a single living being could be seen in the entire world, and the world came to an end.

When Zhu Yao saw the figures falling over one after another, and the barren land where one could not even see a single life with a gaze from high above, a heavy sense of sorrow, suddenly pressed onto her, and she could not breathe. That did not come from her own emotions, yet, the heaviness that could stop one from breathing, was as though it was the final scream of this collapsing world.

She felt more and more uncomfortable, and then, when the scenery in front of her suddenly flashed, that feeling instantly disappeared again. She realized she was sitting in her own house.

It was not that natural cottage on Jade Forest Mountain, rather, it was the small seventy-odd square metres apartment she worked hard for a few years to purchase.

She had returned to the modern era!

Zhu Yao looked blankly at all that was familiar in front of her. This was her home. Her room. In front of her was exactly her own computer. And even the cup, which was only printed with a ‘y’, beside her computer, was exactly the same. She was a little unable to react for a moment.

The QQ-chat on her computer screen suddenly flashed and vibrated, it was a message that came from her colleague Xiao Fang.

Xiao Fang: Boss, the bug you mentioned the other time, have already been settled. You’re sure godly! How were you able to identify it? No matter was it during the closed beta or the alpha, not a single person had realized it!

Zhu Yao startled for a moment, and then, she suddenly recalled. Was this not what her colleague had said before she crossed over into the other world? Back then, she seemed to have been discussing about the newly found bug in the new net-game developed by her company. That was a considerably fatal technical bug, and it was very possible that, due to the imbalanced design, it might cause the entire game system to be in a state of imbalance. If such a game were to really be released, it could bring about a huge loss to the company, and the game would obviously be shut down as well.

However, she was not the one who found this problem. It was her old friend, a player, who had found it.

She moved her mouse to find that particular player’s qq account – Realmspirit.

Zhu Yao was in a daze for a moment, yet, she realized that her hands were no longer under her control, and began to type something to him. And, it was even the same exact words she said to him before she crossed into the other world.

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Thank you, the bug informed us of have already been fixed. You helped me once again.

Realmspirit: No problem. I only pointed out where the problem was. The actual person who thought of the solution and moved to fix it was you.

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Haha, I still have to thank you. After all, I have spent my sweat and blood on this game. This game was created with my own hands, and if it were to collapse because of this, I will feel very depressed.

Realmspirit: Are you very concerned about this world?

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Of course. It’s my blood and sweat after all?

Realmspirit: I have a world as well, and it has encountered some problems.

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Oh? What game is it? Can I help you?

Realmspirit: You’re willing to help me?

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Of course, we should help each other in times of need. I’m still a technical staff, after all. Fixing a bug or two is completely not a problem at all!

Realmspirit: Alright!

Technical Department Zhu Yao: Oh right, what kind of game is it? What kind of problem occurred?

Realmspirit: My problem is…

Before Zhu Yao could see clearly what the problem was, a strong ray of white light pierced towards her, and Zhu Yao suddenly woke up.

She looked at her surroundings a little blankly.

This place was, Jade Forest Mountain. She was still in the cultivation world.

Realmspirit was someone she knew ever since she entered the gaming career five years ago. In the beginning, she simply made a few web browser games, and Realmspirit was her first player. He would frequently give a pertinent opinions on her games, and he would always hit right on mark. Hence, she would make changes based on his opinions.

    The bug is Wang Xuzhi?!?!

    The bug could change and that is to do something…..What will she do? Kill Wang Xuzhi???

    Oh no! This is serious now…


  2. AFlappyTeddyBird says:

    The mystery is resolved. The world itself wants her to stop the menace that is Xiao Yi. Let’s just see if she’s lucid enough from her constant delusions to ascertain that fact…

      So wouldn’t her first comedy idea might just be turn Xiao Yi into a good crossdresser then show him around some towns?

      Then drag all the other girls to drag other guys suitable including Xang Xuzhi to be crossdressed?


    • Truth says:

      Well, it was stated that the divine spirits were the world’s spiritual energy itself, so no one should have been too surprised if they thought about it more carefully. Though I have to give it to Xiao YI, he really created a miracle as well. If a girl loves him, she has to have orgies. I can only laugh at this, and this does explains what happened with the first two girls he charmed. However, wow…. for 2,000 years, he thought with the lower half before thinking with his heart and yet no yanderes or lying vixens managed to weasel their way in. Should I say as expected as a harem protagonist?

    And this is why people you should not chat with gods. They tend to send you to another world to fix problems: either defeating a demon king or stopping a “bug” from destroying the world(seems the same to me).
    Thanks for the chapter!

        From the explanation of dozens of transported-to-another-world-by-a-god scenario, it seems to be because gods are not allowed to directly manipulate the world of mortal men. But they can summon someone from another world and give him/her cheat-like abilities that will develop as he/she experience different tribulations and finally defeats the demon king/bug.
        Whew! Seems easier to just directly get rid of the guy though. so roundabout, you lazy gods!

        Yup. They can’t do anything aside from causing natural disasters, creating op artifacts, and telepathically speaking to the inhabitants. Seriously just make a freaking OP weapon that’ll self destruct after the task is done and tell someone there to do the dam job


      • Phoenix says:

        Or just send over some weapon of mass destruction that’ll go off immediately. They can break dimensional barriers and send over large amounts of live creatures to the designated point so I don’t see why they can’t teleport bombs into the world


      • ANIMEPLEX says:

        Its some stupid rules authors came up with that says God can’t apparently mess around with the world that they created for some stupid retarded reason
        ( I get that rule is applied on earth but in a magical world that doesn’t make sense)


      • Phoenix says:

        Except they just broke the rule by sending over otherworlders to fix the problem. Avoid breaking their own rule by breaking the rule… Genius

      Harem MCs and stories in general are a plague. They are hateable not only for destroying entire worlds, but also the dignity of all men and women alike. Death to harem stories!

        Plus they turn the story into the same old plotline in the end. This is why I prefer stories that do not have a harem and get bored of ones that are focused on harem building

        I actually expected Xiao Yi’s master would have at least some sense to put in her disciple, but to think she ended up just going with the flow without trying to correct or enlighten her disciple…. for all the time she lived, she sure falls below expectations. Sighs, it looks like we need the super psychologist Zhu Yao to wake up this stupid Xiao Yi and make him answer as to why he gets so many girls and whether it is actually love or perhaps just lust from his instincts. If she can drag Wang Xuzhi from the dark side, she can put morality or self-awareness into head. Plus, it seems the girls decided to be supportive instead of trying to stand by his side on equal footing. Come on, he even just picked up random people on the side of the road without properly trying to get to know them and had likely not thought about the repercussions of his actions from having sex on the mission or taking certain girls as lovers. Well, at least we can say that he is ideal for certain medieval Asian kings who think it is only natural to have hundreds of girls as lovers weather he loves or not and whether he is married or not.

      If you think about, one of the harem members was stated to be a queen, meaning either she become a single ruler despite girls seemingly being beneath men (based on how it looks with Xiao YI) or she was already married. Instead of having marriage counselling for the sake of the kingdom or empire, it seems that the queen was taken from her kingdom into the home of Xiao YI instead. We can only hope he didn’t destroy a kingdom and marriage because of his lust. We can also only hope that he wasn’t the cause of the marriage dispute.

    And, his definition towards love was, if you love me, give me n-play¹.

    Let n=0 | -1 | i | π | √2 | 42

    if you love me, give me 0-play
    if you love me, give me i-play
    if you love me, give me π-play
    if you love me, give me √2play
    if you love me, give me -1 play

    There should be a rule while ascending that you may not take any vital goods pertaining to the world’s well-being with you. Or make a return system of some sorts. Doesn’t matter if they stop Xiao Yi, a system that makes output requires input, or it will run out. Basic conservation logic.


  8. Chuo says:

    I really thought little beggar was another otherworlder, he’s just really lucky to the point he destroys the world? I guess the god of that world is a netgamer and it’s showing Zhao Yu in her own terms stuff on how to help, I wonder if that teleportation killed her on her own world, that would suck.

    Thanks for the translation.

    I would just add a system that creates a new spirit when the old one has ascended and drop it in a random place far from humans.

    To stop the protagonist from creating harem, she need to create a harem herself and put protagonist in it. Now, go seduce that playboy and be motherfucking dense so his love is unrequited.

    Hmmm…. why don’t she try to rely on her master for the problem, like telling him that she had a weird dream that could actually come true if they didn’t do anything? Or she is under the contract of not being able to tell others and doing herself? Though, even if tells her master he probably would have his hands full dealing with the harem mc’s master and the others brain washed girls… so it is up to her and maybe Xuzhi too?

    But what will happen after the bug is dealt? Will she return to her own world (if it is even possible, since her original body had died)? Or will she just continue on that world but with a low profile somewhat similar with her master (because he is a genius, so she could just say it as well) and pass on the tradition like him? Or there are actually more bugs out there for her to deal with?

    Thanks for the enlightening! This serie is the best!!!!

    The whole harem thing here, I think was completely unneeded amd simply added an “unexplained power” to him.


  14. Lily says:

    Oh! Oh! Oh! So Xiao Yi is not a “bug” as in an insect, but a computer bug? As in he is not supposed to be there and he is indeed an other-wielded? At the very least that’s my take on this =D
