I am still on holiday. I’ve translated this about a year ago so I might as well post it. This is my first ancient novel translation so do give some face :P If you know Chinese, you can try and find out the title which I will only reveal later :P I’ve not decided if I want to continue with the translation. It all depends on the response as ancient novel is never my forte but I always like to challenge myself :)

If you can understand Chinese, you will be able to find the title easily and I encourage you to read it in its original language. Otherwise, do be patient.

The setting, the surroundings, even the weather are as before. But has the passage of time determined that the persons will not be the same?…

Anyone feel the same as me, that Mo Bao Fei Bao’s screenwriter background is definitely showing through in the previous chapter and this one? Very cinematic.  Anyway, one more chapter after this one…
