Volume I – Isolated island survival memoir
Chapter I – Homeward
“It’s not just limited to being too much to deal with! The entire situation is outrageous for us.” A string of pearl-like tears rolled down her cheeks, “Fox women are not only considered the most beautiful women in Beamon Kingdom, but are also considered the same on Pan Continent of human beings. After finishing the coming of age ritual at the age of 15, their armpits start giving birth to natural fragrance and this fragrance is capable of enticing men, giving them an everlasting unforgettable experience. The most boring human bard once named it as ‘Fox Fragrance’. The most terrible thing is that Fox women are not only extremely beautiful but also have a kind of natural inborn obsequiousness. With just a glance, a Fox woman can hook up half of a man’s soul. Shameless humans talk wildly among themselves: The corolla of young Fox women can eliminate some bad conditions.”
“What is this bad condition?” Liu Zhenhan narrowed his eyes and looked at her while simultaneously holding the burst of laughter inside him but pretended to be serious.
“Bad condition.” Hailun thought for a moment then said: “It is possibly some kind of strange disease or condition. For instance, you can use it to make an old man glow with the vitality of young boys.”
“Ohhh~~ I got it, such a thing is also there in my hometown.” Liu Zhenhan finally understood.
He initially did not know that she was actually talking about curing atrophy. He lifted his chin up and was sucked into an infinite daydream.
“This is also the reason why human women are very jealous of Fox women.”
“Properly speaking, humanity also boasts a fair share of beautiful women, and perhaps, some are no less beautiful than Fox women in comparison, but they still lack natural charm and most desired, Fox Fragrance. Moreover, Fox women’s beauty is on a whole another level when complemented by their charm and obsequiousness, not to mention their corolla has such an important purpose. Therefore for human women, jealousy towards Fox women is fully understandable.”
“These are main reasons why there is always a whooping high price for Fox women in the black market. Most human aristocrats say that they are willing to pay any price to own their own Fox pet and participate in a cleansing ceremony with her to boost their manhood.”
“Every man is innocent in a certain way as he just cannot help but cherish the forbidden fruit kept in front of his eyes.” Liu Zhenhan tried to show off his wisdom and uttered this quote spontaneously.
“The words you spoke just now have a flavor of philosophy hidden within.” Hailun smiled bitterly and astringently: “For thousands of years, Pan Continent has been involved in the slave trade of Fox women and circulating them. Many years ago, two Fox women were trafficked to the far Eastern Continent and were sold to two powerful kings. The slave traders received porcelain-made antiques, gold, precious silk fabrics and spice in exchange for the two Fox women slaves.”
“The two Fox women, with their fabulous appearance and charm, easily captured the hearts of the two Eastern Kings. One of the kings wanted to win his Fox slave’s heart and did not hesitate to light ‘rocket of rescue’ which sent a smoke signal into the sky. Countless loyal aristocratic troops arrived as a response to the smoke signal to support their king, only to find out that they had been swindled. Afterward, the uncivilized country of barbarians attacked that king’s country and he reignited the rocket to rescue to call for help, but this time, no one came to his rescue – because they did not want to be fooled again. So, in the end, a powerful king lost his life because of this one foolish act.”
“What about the other fox woman?” Liu Zhenhan asked.
“The other Fox woman was even more incredible. Even when she was trapped in a foreign land, her charm was so magnificent that the king no longer wanted to attend meetings in the imperial palace. A bard once wrote a famous song when he was travelling on the Eastern continent. The general idea of this song was ‘Why are you always in a hurry, oh great king, why is the sunrise so late for the great king.”
This poem seems legit but weird. Liu Zhenhan thought.
“Later, the fox woman caught a lethal heart disease and the king actually did not even hesitate to sacrifice his own uncle to make a stew out of his uncle’s heart and liver, just to feed the stew to his woman. And the point to note is that he did it in the name of their god, but why? To save a beautiful creation of the same god from an incurable sickness; this stupid move on his part was made just to justify his inappropriate cause of preserving his days full of his despicable fetish and lust, not for her sake. But despite doing all this in the name of god, he still was unable to cure her disease.”
“The arrogant king also made a lake of wine and continued to lead a very comfortable life with that Fox woman, at the same time not at all bothering about his kingdom’s internal and external affairs. So, the anger and unrest created by his negligent attitude led to him being overthrown from power.”
“Thus, the beauty and charm of Fox Clan can be inferred easily from these two stories.”
“Duoluo Nation- this mercenary nation is the closest neighbor of Beamon Kingdom and is located in a very close proximity of the Fox Clan’s hometown. Every year, they sneak into the Danube wilderness through an ancient trade route to kidnap beautiful young Fox women and sell them to obtain a lifetime worth of fortune. Similarly, numerous black-marketers also indigenously sneak into the Danube wilderness. These brutal robbers and thieves come in disguise and sell their stuff at such a low price that it becomes almost impossible for Beastman merchants to not engage in trade and they also seem fairly interested in buying magical beast cores from us, but this is just a façade to cover up their real intention – the slave trade.” Hailun was sobbing. Her tear-filled eyes were like a raging ocean but there was extreme sadness visible in it as well.”
“You and your sisters were captured by human slave traders and they were going to ship you to a human country right?” Liu Zhenhan turned his head to think. At that time, there were indeed several fox women stuffed in that wooden chest and all were pretty, “Then did they also…..you know…..did that to you?”
“No.” Hailun’s eyelids hung down, “Those human bandits were very cunning. They were from a powerful enemy nation that shared the northwestern border with our Beamon Kingdom. But, they entered from the northeastern border which is actually open for trade relations with other nations. They had come planned to plunder me and my sisters. They purchased a trading ship then entered from the northeastern part, camouflaged as a trade ship. They had already removed their typical headbands that could give away their identity as bandits. They had also removed the symbol of their bandit group and were dressed in popular traders’ robes. It was very hard to figure out their true identity, well-hidden under their disguise as merchants. They docked their ship in the port and sneaked into my hometown and attacked our clan. No one expected that someone would attack in the central part of the port city. Since the defense was low, the gang of shameless bandits easily succeeded in their vicious plan and captured us. Human bandits give very high importance to the chastity of fox women as we are nothing but trophies for their kings. So, they did not defile me and my sisters.”
“Beamon Kingdom doesn’t have its own navy?” Liu Zhenhan asked as he felt very strange about this incident, “Are there no inspections done for the unidentified ships before entering the port?”
“Li Cha.” Hailun looked up: “We have not made large warships as our craftsmen, carpenters and shipwrights are not comparable to their counterparts in the human nation.”
“Then at least there should be a large army to guard the coastline.” Liu Zhenhan immediately came up with a solution using a soldier’s keen judgment skills.
“We have arranged several sentry posts and checkpoints on the coastline but there is actually no need for a heavily guarded coastline,” Hailun said: “Because in the sea, the mighty sea race does not allow any ship that is loaded with troops to pass over their heads, not even through the sky. In addition to that, the sea race has signed trade agreements with several influential merchants from the human nations, so excluding the trade ships all other unauthorized ships are attacked and destroyed by the sea race.”
“Sea race?” Liu Zhenhan’s eyes widened even more.
He immediately thought of the dragon palace located underwater, in the East China Sea.
And how could he forget that famous ‘turtle’ prime minister?
“Are you serious?” Liu Zhenhan really did not believe what he heard just now, “Hailun, don’t tell me that in addition to beastmen and human beings who evolved into intelligent beings on land, even fishes and shrimps have evolved into sentient beings?”
“This world is unimaginably big, dear Li Cha.” Hailun picked up a twig and started fiddling with the bonfire, “We and human beings have struggled for such a long time on Qin continent, but remember that Qin continent is just like this bonfire in a world that is as big as this island! Then why cannot sea creatures evolve into intelligent beings?”
“Well, that is believable.” Liu Zhenhan nodded.
“Besides Qin continent, the powerful and famous Silk continent is located in the far east whereas the bountiful and prosperous Sang continent is located in the south.” Hailun said: “This is just what we know and the sea is simply infinite while we have just seen the tip of an iceberg. It is said that in the past, human race sent some dragon knights to scout the world. They leaped the ocean to map the entire world, however, discovered that ocean was much larger in the area when compared to the continents.”
“Well, no wonder they say that water is the source of life.” Liu Zhenhan felt that saying such words now would definitely showcase his wisdom.
Hailun looked at Liu Zhenhan and continued staring for a long time, while her heart was full of an indescribable feeling.
“You know what?” Hailun said in a strange and seductive manner: “Ever since I first saw you, I knew that you are someone who can survive in the face of adversity. You remain optimistic and never give up. You follow your will and bend situations according to your convenience and need. It’s as if the god himself is watching over you. Although you are unattractive, you still have a golden heart. Even after finding out that your Fruit is actually called ‘doom beast’, you still continue to keep him as your pet and do not want to abandon him. Moreover, words of great wisdom keep coming out of your mouth. The kind of wisdom and intellect you show through your quotes is not something even the so-called Vian Shamans are able to say so easily and briefly. Can it be that you are actually a gift from war-god Campas to the Beamon Kingdom?”
“I’m not sure about anything else.” Liu Zhenhan said with a smile: “But, I am sure that war-god has given you to me without a doubt.”
“And I am also sure that war-god has given you to the Beamon Kingdom, but we are still on a desolate island. Also, this is a dire situation because not many ships will dare to pass from here even if we wait for a year. It seems like our wish to go back home is simply unattainable.” Hailun sighed and said.
“Oh, is it because of the sea race?” Liu Zhenhan still found it hard to believe, “Tell me Hailun, if the sea race does not allow you to take the sea route, you will not go?”
“Sea race has some very powerful fighters, such as whale warriors that are capable of grasping giant anchors to use them as weapons and cause shipwrecks. They can easily cause shipwrecks and not even the gigantic battleships of the human race can survive the mighty assault from the formidable warriors of sea race. Sea race has several clans that have their own territories which are at war with each other most of the times. Among all these clans, the famous Xiya clan is located closest to the coastline of our Beamon Kingdom.” Hailun said: “Human race and Beastman race are allowed to fish close to their coastlines but they are absolutely not allowed to keep navy fleets in the sea, sending navy ships into the sea is simply out of the question. In fact, if we mobilize navy even for self-defense then they will take it as a provocation against their dignity. This is the reason why influential clans and people of all powerful nations send high-quality goods and gifts to the sea race every year in order to obtain a special permit which allows their trade ships to sail in the sea. Sea race’s special permission is an absolute must for all commercial trade and cargo ships.”
“Then are there no such powerful clans in the Beamon Kingdom that have obtained ‘special permit’ from the sea race to send their trade ships into the sea?” Liu Zhenhan felt his heart tightening as he asked this question. If whales had really evolved to take gigantic human forms and had also gained wisdom, and, if sea race was really so tyrannical and whimsical then the very plan of accompanying Hailun on a voyage to her hometown was pure nonsense.
Hailun shook her head.
“Damn, are you saying it is hopeless? That we cannot go to your hometown because this sea race is manically blocking the sea routes and is not ready to listen to reasons.
“This is basically the public waters of the sea race. Those shameless human bandits just wanted to go back to their nation and were very afraid of the sea tribe.” Hailun said: “I could understand their language so I came to know that they had camouflaged their ships as a trade ship. Everything from their flag to the markings on their ship’s hull was changed to look like one of the trade ships which are recognized by the sea race.”
“Hah.” Liu Zhenhan said with a crafty smile: “This is enough to show how audacious they were but how much courage they actually had in their hearts. What an irony in its own way!”
“Well, they were also taking a major risk.” Hailun further added: “You see, they belong to a Desert nation and their king is quite a debauchee. In fact, entire aristocracy is basically the same like their king. They forcibly capture beautiful girls, especially very young girls and to the point that I am embarrassed to quote how young and they do this to enrich their harems. The law in their nation allows each man to have four wives and those human bandits were trying to reach the northeastern port of a human nation and then quietly return to their own desert nation which is located far away from the coastline. You must have seen how they had loaded us in a box to keep us away from the prying eyes of other human thieves. They just did not expect to run into a sea storm that came as their doom.”
“In order to satisfy the private desires of their king and obtain power and influence in their country, these shameless people are not at all bothered by the crimes they commit against your people.” Liu Zhenhan sneered and said, “They fucking deserved it! They had it coming.”
“Human race has abandoned its original identity in Qin continent and has become degraded in narrow-mindedness. They switched from being a private market to an open market and totally focus on their own benefits through whichever means they can take for their ulterior motives. In fact, they are so inclined about making profits that they are willing to sell even their closest people and allies. They don’t even spare their own people in order to usurp power and influence. Even the sea race has to eat losses when dealing with these human hypocrites, and this is particularly annoying because the laws and policies of human nations are completely repugnant and ignorant about other races and beings on the Qin continent. Now, the biggest problem lies in the fact that humanity has come to monopolize trade on the Qin continent since they are the only race that is capable of manufacturing voyage ships and gigantic trade ships. No other living organism possesses such a high technical prowess and this has given a major advantage to human beings as the sole dictators of trade, not just in the neighboring countries but also in the seas.”
(TL Note: Human race lives on Pan Subcontinent. Other races including Beastman race live on Qin Continent. Pan Subcontinent is just a part of Qin Continent.)
“So basically, they are a bunch of vagabonds playing dictators of ships and trade.” Liu Zhenhan shrugged, “What else can you expect? This situation is hopeless in its entirety.”
“May the great war-god have mercy on these people and bestow a miracle upon them to cleanse the filth that is firmly occupying their mind and soul.” Hailun looked at Liu Zhenhan and seemed very confident. Perhaps, her faith in war-god Campas was the reason behind her confidence, or perhaps she was expecting something from Liu Zhenhan whom she thought was a blessing from Campas.
“Are there no fish type magical beasts in the sea?” Liu Zhenhan suddenly asked with curiosity.
“Of course, there are several species of magical beasts in the sea.” Hailun thought for a moment and said.
“Then we have still not reached a dead end.” Liu Zhenhan laughed: “Say, you are a soul singer right? Then you must be able to summon a magical beast with that psychic battle song of yours to make a pet. Moreover, even I am also an inborn soul singer. What if we both try to summon a magical beast from the sea and make it drag a wooden raft for us?”
“But the magical beasts of the sea are generally found resting on the deep seabed. How can we call them when we cannot even communicate with them?” Hailun pointed out a difficult problem.
“This…” Liu Zhenhan touched his chin and pondered for a moment, “If we cannot go by sea then we go by the sky. How about we befriend a big bird to be our ride? I have seen a lot of big birds flying over the island, like the osprey. Why don’t we catch them?”
“This can be done.” Hailun said with a serious look on her face, “When you recruit a pet, you must treat them with sincerity and love! You must treat them as your own family, but the emotional component involved in this is too much to handle, right?”
“As long as we can get out of this deserted island, I am willing to go through anything.” Liu Zhenhan said.
“But each soul singer can recruit only one magical pet at a time. If the pet is not killed in battle or doesn’t die naturally, then you must abide by the contract and then it is impossible to recruit the second magic pet! Although I originally had a magic pet bird but she was killed by those human bandits. She died honorably to protect me! Now, I can recruit a magical beast as my new pet but….” She seemed somewhat embarrassed as she said: “After we return to my hometown on an osprey bird, other scared sacrifices will make fun of me. They will certainly mock me to death.”
“So what? Let them laugh if they wanna laugh. It is still better than staying on this damned island.” Liu Zhenhan nonchalantly said: “Besides, you have gotta go back and take revenge for the loss of your sisters. Your sisters were your precious family members and they died in the hands of those bandits. What can you possibly achieve by staying on this island which is only good for being a dumping place for bird crap?”
Hailun’s eyes reddened with tears slowly welling up and running down her face. His words had invoked hatred and a kind of fire inside her.
“Well, ignore what I just said. I really must keep my sharp tongue under control.” Liu Zhenhan somewhat regretted.
She wiped the tears off her face and said, “Compared with the intense and deep-seated hatred for those who have hurt my people, the glory of being a sacred sacrifice can certainly not become a burden for me.”
“There’s one more thing I want to verify, Hailun.” Liu Zhenhan cautiously asked: “Since the sea clan only allows licensed ships to pass through their territory, do you think they will attack our raft if we accidentally run into them during the voyage?”
“They will attack us.” Hailun answered bluntly.
“Then you teach me that magic which requires combustion of life energy. If I am really an inborn soul singer then I would gladly use that magic as a last resort against them. We will either escape or take them down with us.” Liu Zhenhan looked just like a desperado as he said these words.
“Sorry.” Hailun said with regret: “Dear Li Cha, a soul singer is unable to reach the realm of life magic unless they have already comprehended the ‘Berserk battle song’ and have been promoted to the rank of a sacred sacrifice. Only then can they attain the right to burn their life energy to perform magic. If I knew life magic then perhaps I would not have met you on this island. Although combustion of life is strictly considered as suicide, in the teachings of war-god, it has been strictly mentioned that suicide is an act of cowardice, and after the suicidal death of a Beastman, they would be unable to enter the home of Beamon souls. But, if there comes a situation when my entire clan is about to get slaughtered, I would certainly not hesitate to follow the steps of my ancestors who used life magic for the survival of Beastman race.”
“We are losing our cards one after another. This is getting a little dangerous now.” Liu Zhenhan secretly thought but did not let the look of tension appear on his face.
“Then how will we go back home?” Hailun looked at his face with great expectations, as if she knew that he would definitely come up with a solution.
“We will return home!” Liu Zhenhan saw her looking at him and immediately said in a heroic manner, “No one will stop us because they basically cannot. The sea is so big that it will literally take a tragic coincidence for that to happen.”
“You know what?” Hailun moved closer and gently touched his face, saying: “The first time I saw you, I thought you were just a cowardly, greedy and lazy pigman of the Pig Clan. But I never thought that you are actually a gift to me from the great war-god Campus.”
“Pigman? Pig Clan?” Liu Zhenhan rubbed his own nose and an awkward smile spread across his face as he said: “Well, I understand that now I look very much like a pig.”
“Well, mark my words that good looks are not enough to win the heart of a fox woman. We desire much more than just the good appearance in a man. And, do you actually feel that the women of Fox clan are so superficial?” Hailun pursed her lips.
“Damn girl, fuck, fuck, this seductress is just out of the world. No matter what she does or says, ends up seducing people!” Liu Zhenhan turned his face the other way and murmured.
“Is mixing allowed between your clan and Pig Clan?” Liu Zhenhan was wondering if he were to go to her hometown then how he would portray himself. He could certainly not go there as a human being because of the hostile relations between human race and Beastman race. And, when a noble like Hailun was unable to figure out about him being a human then it could be considered that nobody would find out about his true identity.
“In Beamon Beastman Kingdom, the nobles are usually fighting type of race, and in fact, the very occupation of aristocrats is to protect civilians. Whenever the war breaks out, they pick up swords and shields to prove their military skills and valor. But my Fox clan is the only aristocratic clan that sends sacred sacrifices to fight in the war along with their magical pets. However, a majority of clan members are only good at using pens instead of swords to do the accounting and various other office jobs which again is a very vital during wartime. Therefore, our kingdom’s most formidable clan of mightiest soldiers namely Elephant Clan and our kingdom’s number one clan when it comes to reproduction ability namely Pig Clan; both these clans have been given to Fox Clan as vassal clans.” Hailun said this and cast a sidelong glance at Liu Zhenhan.
“I see, so Pig Clan is your vassal clan.” Liu Zhenhan suddenly felt dwarfed in front of her.
Hailun covered her mouth, smiled tenderly then continued: “Elephant Clan is very choosy when it comes to food but had very low fertility. However, their terrifying might is enough to compensate for all these shortcomings. A survey that took place throughout the continent suggests that only Titan Clan, which is similarly a small clan, can take on Elephant soldiers. In fact, even a young Elephant soldier can easily beat most Beastman soldiers. Because of this a lot of brave humans also like to put elephant tusks on their walls, to demonstrate their military skills and vigor. Although Pigmen are born lazy, they possess super digestion ability and terrifying fertility. So the Pig Clan ended up having the biggest population in the entire Beamon Kingdom, occupying 1/6th of the total population. Hence, Beamon Elder Hospital decided to execute birth control law on Pig Clan to control their rapidly growing population. Family planning was also introduced as a concept to control the out of control population of Pig Clan. Although Pig Clan can be considered as a medium level fighting force, their bodies mostly contain fat and low muscles. But as they say, even ant bites can kill an elephant. Regardless of birth control and family planning programs introduced solely for them, their total population is now above 800,000. This is truly shocking right?”
“That’s insane.” Liu Zhenhan felt admiration for the so-called Beamon Elder Hospital for coming up with the idea of family planning and birth control. This was not a simple feat in this kind of world.
“Love, you do not need to worry about all these things.” Hailun said excitedly: “You are an inborn soul singer, do you know what that means? That means both Beamon Elder Hospital and the temple will give you a supreme and courteous reception.”
“My girl, I have a small confession to make.” Liu Zhenhan said in a somewhat lamenting tone: “Well, you know, what if I tell you that I am actually not a pigman? I am actually an authentic human being.”
“Then I won’t believe in it.” Hailun shook her head a little and said with a smile, “I will tell you why I won’t believe you. You see, humans can only resonate with magic then how are you able to sing Beamon battle song as if you are an expert soul singer? The first time I saw your black hair, I thought you belong to the famous Devil race that disappeared thousands of years ago. However, I later remembered reading in ancient records that devils are said to possess silver pupils, so I concluded that you are not a devil. I personally think that you are a Beastman warrior who has been gifted to us by war-god Campas. In the entire continent, not a single one of those despicable humans can have such beautiful black hair.”
“You are simply in a denial mode aren’t you?” Liu Zhenhan was baffled by this: “I am telling you that I was not born this way. I injured my nose and it turned this way. My mother is actually a beautiful human being.”
“You know what? I think you’re joking, trying to tease me.” Hailun smiled and said: “Dear Li Cha, you can crack such jokes in front of me but you better not do it in the Beamon Kingdom. If you cracked this joke in open then you will be dragged to the altar and they will burn you alive for being a heretic.”
“What?” Liu Zhenhan was stunned by this.
“Promise me.” Hailun stared at his face.
Liu Zhenhan was secretly grieving in his heart. Not only his name changed, now he also had to change his identity from being a human being to the new identity of a pigman. He could no longer stay a human, now, he was a pig! Not any other animal species that he could have been, but no, he had to become a pig in this new world! If his brother got to know about this then Liu Zhenhan would be humiliated to death without a doubt!
“Promise me.” Hailun held his arm, shook it fiercely and said in a childish voice.
While looking at her beautiful pouting face and listening to her mesmerizing voice, Liu Zhenhan nodded mysteriously without actually knowing why he did it.
“Li Cha, I love you so much!” She threw herself into his arms and they smooched.
“Hailun, how old are you?” Liu Zhenhan’s eyes rolled once and it was obvious that he had started to have a bad idea. It was an idea that would further incur an action which required knowledge about the partner’s age.
“Fifteen.” Hailun replied proudly.
“What?” Liu Zhenhan suddenly felt half of the fire of his desires getting extinguished. He opened his mouth wide like a leftover piece of salted fish.
How is this possible? Can 15 years old girls really develop in such a way? Liu Zhenhan fiercely swallowed his saliva and was overwhelmed by this disclosure.
“Rite of passage was held for me this year itself! Li Cha, you smelled my fragrance yet?” She hid her face behind the wolf skin with embarrassment after asking this question.
“I smelled your fragrance.” Liu Zhenhan answered absentmindedly as he was busy thinking about how it was prohibited to have a relationship with a 15-year-old girl. It was considered a crime, more like a sin, and the punishment dedicated to this crime was none other than getting shot.
“How was the smell? Good or bad?” She asked excitedly while her eyes were curiously staring at him.
“Damn, she is just a little girl, I have blundered. I cannot let her seduce me again.” Liu Zhenhan shouted in his heart.
“Li Cha, why are you silent?” Hailun looked at Liu Zhenhan who was in a daze as if drowned in his own world, not at all aware of her question.
“In your kingdom, I mean in your clan…..” Liu Zhenhan scratched his head and further asked: “For example, someone accidentally enters into a relationship with a 15 years old girl, and well, you see, things happen. Will he be sentenced to death?”
“You’re mean!” Hailun blushed as her face turned red like the setting sun.
“I am just asking casually in order to draw an analogy.” Liu Zhenhan immediately said.
“I won’t talk to you.” She pouted and turned her face away. Her bright red hair passed over gently and swiftly on Liu Zhenhan’s face along with a sudden burst of pleasant aroma.
“I was just joking.” Liu Zhenhan tried to play it cool, “I want to see how you would react.”
“I know my Li Cha is not like those evil humans.” Hailun smiled through her eyes.
“That’s a big blunder, my girl.” Liu Zhenhan said in his heart.
“Corolla is the proof of purity and chastity and is especially important for a sacred sacrifice who is not yet married. And she is unable to make a breakthrough in the battle song if she lost her corolla. Therefore, Beamon Kingdom has set a strict limit on the legal age of marriage for sacred sacrifices. They must be at least 18 years old at the time of marriage, otherwise, the temple will cancel their title of sacred sacrifice and give punishment as well.” Hailun explained in detail.
Liu Zhenhan felt like asking whether it was possible to secretly do it, without letting others know about it, but was too embarrassed to ask.
“Li Cha, will you protect me in the future?” Hailun gently ringed his neck with her arms. Her fragrant warm breath was blowing against his face.
“That goes without saying.” Liu Zhenhan swiped his big nose with swagger.
“You are so cool!” Hailun hugged him.
The Shaolin Temple under the coconut shell was once again open for business, but this time, it was on the edge and could not help drumming against the coconut shell to proudly announce its presence.

(Novel Saga Team: With this, we have reached the end of Volume 1. Mere 9 chapters in the first volume but these 9 chapters are equivalent to 25 normal sized chapters but think of this volume as fully dedicated to world building . Now our TL is prepared to take on the challenge :D)
