Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 69 Poem and Affection Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 69 Poem and Affection “Not bad Gu Yu, you can recite a poem that I haven’t even taught you yet, you must be working really hard on your own,” said Wen Jiubo. “But, do you understand the implicit meaning conveyed in this poem?” I nodded hesitantly. “In this poem, Wen Tingyun describes the feelings that a lovesick woman has towards her lover at midnight. The second half of the poem conveys this woman’s never-ending longing for her lover by describing her surroundings.” “Don’t try to fool me by using a standardized explanation.” Unexpectedly, Wen Jiubo wasn’t satisfied with my answer. He slightly shook his head. “Gu Yu, you aren’t that woman and weren’t with the poet when he wrote this poem so how could you know what he thought at that time?” My mind went blank for a bit, I didn’t expect Wen Jiubo would ask me a question like this. However, I still tried to answer him seriously. “Isn’t that obvious? It was raining late at night, the woman could hear the sound it made as it dropped on the plantain leaves, which indicated that she must have been sleepless all night long. She sat in front of the house alone...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 68 Xun Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 68 Xun I nodded. To be honest, as Wen Jiubo mentioned, I also had this same vague feeling. Although I couldn’t tell what it was, I could felt that something was slowly and subtly changing in Yan City. “I noticed something, so I consulted an oracle yesterday.” Wen Jiubo sat on the bench in front of the house and slowly said, “Do you know ‘Xun’?” I nodded hesitatingly. “It’s one of the eight trigrams…right?” But besides that, I knew nothing else about it. “Xun represents wind, it can also mean to disperse. The book ‘Shiming’, written during the Han dynasty, said that: ‘Xun, means to disperse. Everything in the world is born to be dispersed in the end.’ This trigram indicates timely wind and rain, however…” Wen Jiubo looked at the horizon outside the window, hesitated. (TL note: ‘Shiming’ is a Chinese dictionary that employed phonological glosses, and is believed to date from 200 CE.) As I heard this, I approached him, suddenly lifting my hand to pat his head. Obviously, Wen Jiubo didn’t expect me to do that, he stared at me perplexedly. “You always tend to overthink everything around you,” I said. “But most of it may not be as complicated as you think....Read More

Chapter 67 The Green Fan “Uh, I see.” Shi Yitong was speechless. I looked at Coo and then look at Wen Jiubo, it suddenly occurred to me that this cat’s former owner should be Wen Jiubo… “Wen Jiubo, what was its previous name?” Wen Jiubo looked at and sighed, “Xuanse.” I looked at that cat, then at Su Xiaoyun and burst into laughter. “Hahaha!” “Why are you laughing?” Su Xiaoyun became angry, waving her fists towards us. “It’s Coo! Coo is a beautiful name!” Shi Yitong and I couldn’t stop laughing even though she was angry. “But, now that Coo is back, does it mean that the curse on me is lifted?” Su Xiaoyun asked. “The curse will never be broken, but the cat will offset some of its negative effects for you.” Wen Jiubo narrowed his eyes and glanced at me and Shi Yitong. “Like what happened to your friends today, the closer they are, the more probable they will suffer some misfortunes. Also, the positive energy in your body is still weak, so if you don’t take care of yourself you might easily get sick.” “I see…” Su Xiaoyun lowered her head. “Of course, there is a solution that will work...Read More

Chapter 66 The End “I’m fine.” Wen Jiubo smiled, dusting his hands. “Everything’s resolved.” “What did you say? Everything’s resolved? What did you resolve?” Bai asked a lot of questions at once. “Ah, Su Xiaoyun!” Shi Yitong noticed Su Xiaoyun, who was sitting on the ground and immediately rushed over her. “Why are you here? Hey, are you okay? My Goddess, please don’t die!” “Who are you cursing to die?!” Su Xiaoyun grabbed Shi Yitong’s hair. Judging by her voice, she had recovered. “Uh, that’s fantastic, you’re okay!” “Ay! Don’t you dare try to grab me, get away from me!” Looking at them, I couldn’t help but smile. That’s great, everything is finally over. “…You’re saying that you destroyed the parasite spirit??” Bai was surprised after he heard the story. “That’s awesome!’ “Well, I can’t take all the credit,” Wen Jiubo said while glancing at me with a smile. That guy insincerely complimented me again. I rolled my eyes at him, and at the same time, I thought of an important matter. “Oh, right! How are the three guys doing?” “The parasite spirit is dead. I suppose they should be awake now,” Wen Jiubo said as he looked up at the clock hanging on...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 2 Book of Xun – Chapter 65 Annihilation Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 65 Annihilation It worked. The parasite spirit stood still, neither attacking me nor stepping back. Behind me, Wen Jiubo stayed silent, it seemed he approved of my actions. I walked towards him, step by step. Finally, it moved, reaching out its hand to me. Was it convinced? Yes, I thought it was. My plan worked. The instant Su Xiaoyun’s beautiful hand was about to touch mine, I pulled back, and at the same time, I punched its chest as hard as I could. “Forgive you? Never!” Because of the impact of my hit, black smoke gushed out of Su Xiaoyun’s mouth. And then Su Xiaoyun fell straight to the ground like a lifeless doll. I caught Su Xiaoyun before she hit the ground. “Hey, Su Xiaoyun, are you okay?” Su Xiaoyun slowly opened her eyes and blinked, a little confused. “Gu Yu…? What happened?” I was relieved since she looked alright. However, it seemed that we still had a tricky problem to handle right now. “You!! You little bastard, how dare you lie to me?! I’m going to kill you!” The parasite spirit roared and almost instantaneously, the whole stairwell was filled with thick black smoke. I could see its blood-red body, and together...Read More
