Chapter 19 The Old Woman’s Story (1) Wen Jiubo handed the bag of medicine to the girl on the far left, saying, “You’re so skinny and pale, and your vitality is weak too. You often have diarrhea as well, right? If your spleen and stomach are weak then, of course, you’ll have menstrual disorders. Remember to boil and drink the medicine every night. Apart from that, you also need to remember to eat and sleep regularly and don’t eat spicy food. You can eat more barley congee, that will be good for you.” The young girl hurriedly took the medicine and thanked him incessantly. Signs of adoration flashed across her eyes. “Atractylodes 9g, Dried tangerine peel 4.5g, Bitter orange 9g, Chicken gizzard skin 6g, Grain 9g, Malt 9g.” Wen Jiubo handed over the bag to the second girl. “Your problem is bad digestion. Don’t always stay at home, go out and get more exercise. Eat more green veggies, and don’t touch cigarettes and alcohol.” “T-Thank you, Mr. Wen!” “Peach kernel 15g, Safflower and Angelica root 10g each, Chuanxiong 7g, red peony and licorice root 5g each.” Wen Jiubo handed the final bag to the last girl. “Your complexion is...Read More

Chapter 18 Ji Shi Tang But at the moment, the little creature in front of me was so pitiful that I didn’t think too much about it. I took out a bottled water from my bag, poured some into the cap and handed it over to the white weasel. The little animal sniffed it a few times first, and after making sure it was not dangerous, it stuck out its tongue and started licking the water in the cap, issuing a seemingly pleased cry. I poured the rest of the water on its head. It quickly shook its fur, called at me a couple times as if it was thanking me, then ran into the bush and disappeared in an instant. What kind of animal was that? After thinking for a while, I still couldn’t figure out, so I just gave up. But saving an animal made my mood a lot better. I walked towards the hill behind the school, humming a song along the way. The road leading to the old residence hadn’t changed. The weeds were still tall. I had to spend great effort parting them before I could take my first step. If I were to come here...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 1 Book of Thunder – Chapter 17 A New Beginning Translator: Iamfeiii Editor: Draygan Quality Checker: Tezuka First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 17 A New Beginning Today was a fine day – the rain that had lasted for the past few days finally came to an end as the sun shone brightly in the morning. I carried my bag and left the dorm, squinting my eyes while I observed the surroundings. “Gu Yu!” shouted the voice from behind. As I turned around, I wondered when Su Xiaoyun had caught up with me. She was wearing a small white dress with her long hair fluttering freely, carrying books for today’s class in her arms as she gasped for breath. “Why are you walking so fast? I almost couldn’t catch up with you.” I immediately broke into an embarrassed smile, “Sorry, I didn’t notice you.” “Oh, you…” Su Xiaoyun rolled her eyes, making a ‘the great me shall not be offended by the small you’ face. “Forget it, you’re always acting silly anyway.” “What? That’s so not true.” “Where’s the classroom for this lesson?” “Uhh… I forgot.” “And you still say you’re not silly?!” Just as we were reaching the classroom building, a voice suddenly came from afar, approaching near. “Goddess—Su—wait for me!” I was surprised and quickly dodged aside. The person that came...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 1 Book of Thunder – Chapter 16 Funeral Translator: MoMoePom Editor: Draygan Quality Checker: Tezuka Special thanks to Kleepart and Sakhyu for helping with the poem. \o/ First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 16 Funeral That evening, Shi Yitong and I changed clothes for the deceased old man and laid his body in the coffin. Mr. Wen stayed by the distraught Grandmother Shi’s side all this time as they planned the funeral together. Shi Yitong had been quiet the whole time, he neither spoke nor cried. The fine Chinese cedar nested coffin unexpectedly suited grandfather well. “One, two, three!” The strong men counted in unison as they lifted the coffin up. Actually, the coffin should not be very heavy for eight people to carry together, but even if so, they still wanted to do it for the sake of appearances. On the day of the funeral, all of us wore entirely black clothes, but Mr. Wen was still in his black Daoist robe with its flowing sleeves fluttering in the wind. A lot of villagers came, just like what Shi Yitong had said, his grandfather was quite famous in the village. “What a misfortune!” I heard a villager on the side say as he shook his head. “Old Grandfather Shi has seen off numerous people in his life, but unexpectedly now it’s our turn...Read More

Shi Yitong and I both froze. Last night we were too worried about grandfather’s condition, so none of us paid any attention to the coffin. But now, thinking about it… It didn’t. It really didn’t. It was extremely quiet the whole night. The coffin had been lying in the courtyard peacefully, and it didn’t make any sound. “It didn’t…” I mumbled in reply. “Then that’s it,” Mr. Wen narrowed his eyes and smiled. “I’ve already solved your worry perfectly.” “What did you say?” Shi Yitong’s face was flushed with anger, and he was about to throw himself at Mr. Wen and start a vicious fight. But right at this moment, Shi Yitong’s grandmother tottered out of the room. There were still tear stains on her face. The moment she saw Mr. Wen, she was completely shocked. Then she cried out, “Aiyo!”, as she trotted all the way before us. She stared at Mr. Wen, her lips trembling as if she couldn’t believe her eyes. “Mr. Wen… Are you really Mr. Wen?” I was taken aback, but Shi Yitong was even more shocked than I was. He didn’t even know what emotions to express on his face. “Grandma? Y-you, you know...Read More
