Ch 1 – Second Generation Ancestor x Illegitimate Child: Rebirth

Sponsored Content

July days were long, and the sun shone down on the suburban horse track, making people feel like the heat was somewhat unbearable.

A young master wearing a black shirt sat in the shade at the innermost part, with a look so dark other people saw him but didn’t dare approach, creating a vacuum.

Someone saw him and thought about stepping forward to strike up a conversation, but they were immediately pulled back by their companion.

“Do you not want to live anymore? That’s the Lin family’s living ancestor, he’s clearly not in a good mood right now, are you going to go give him something to vent his anger out on?”

As soon as the person preparing to go up to him heard that he was Lin Sui, they immediately gave up on their idea.

Even if people in the circle had never seen Lin Sui’s appearance, they had heard about Lin Sui’s reputation.
Although he looked like an easy to talk to beauty, he was actually a genuinely domineering, arrogant and wild man who had endless ways of humiliating people.
He was a little tyrant who shouldn’t be trifled with, and the people he bore grudges against suffered a lot, to say the least.

What the people coming and going in the horse track didn’t know was that, at this time, the person sitting in the shade had already changed his core, and this Lin Sui wasn’t that Lin Sui anymore.

Lin Sui was in an extremely gloomy mood now, if everything had gone according to the usual trajectory, he should have been scattered into ashes and smoke a few minutes ago, and wouldn’t be sitting in this place completing some damn mission.

He could clearly see a floating, light blue bead, which made him want to cut his skull open and forcefully take it out.
Unfortunately, modern medicine couldn’t detect the existence of this thing.

The Will of Heaven sensed his malice, and the bead emitted a transparent, electric current, making Lin Sui’s head hurt like he had been pricked by needles.

[You must remember, your mission is to retrieve the remnants of the Son of Fortune’s scattered soul, serve him as master in every world, and spare no effort for him until your dying day!]

Lin Sui had just heard these words once a few minutes prior, he endured the lingering pain in his nerves and propped his cheek up, lazily answering.

[I know, my memory isn’t that bad yet, but if you shock me again a few times that may not necessarily be the case.]

The Will of Heaven, that is, the System, since Lin Sui wanted to give this thing a more modern name, stopped it’s so-called disciplining.

The System warned: [You better know your place.]

Lin Sui sneered, and didn’t answer.

As for the situation up until now, there was actually somewhat of a sense that he only had himself to blame for it, but Lin Sui was unwilling to describe it that way himself, it would actually be better to say that the loser was always in the wrong1.

This was Lin Sui’s third life.
In his first life, he was a wronged rich young master who was able to reverse all of his disadvantages and seize power, unfortunately, he wasn’t able to enjoy it for long before he died.

After he died, he had a second life.
He transmigrated into a book.

He transmigrated into a xuanhuan2 cultivation novel, and turned into a cannon fodder with a human cauldron constitution3, doomed to become a servant.

Lin Sui never accepted the misfortunes decreed by fate, and he strived hard to cultivate with his human cauldron body, but unfortunately the body bestowed onto him by destiny was unfit for marrow cleansing, so no matter how much he struggled or how much effort he put in, he was unable to use the spiritual power stored in his body.

It seemed that he was a tool for storing spiritual power, who could only wait for someone to pluck him up and take away his spiritual energy in a constant stream.

After failing every kind of method, Lin Sui met the cultivation text’s protagonist.

The protagonist, what an alluring word.

He possessed the dao bone Lin Sui wanted but couldn’t have.
Lin Sui knew the protagonist would still be able to cultivate again after losing this dao bone, and that he only had this once chance.

Lin Sui had already paid a great price in business dealings with other people to exchange for their dao bones, but unfortunately he was unable to harmonise with them.
According to the story, only the spiritual dao bone in the protagonist’s body could perfectly adapt to any person.

This was a cultivation novel without a CP, and the protagonist was a virgin who was wholeheartedly devoted to the Dao, so Lin Sui seduced him in order to approach him.

When he cut open the other’s dao bone and merged it with his own body, Lin Sui was prepared to fail and die.
There was no harm in taking a gamble.
If he succeeded, he wouldn’t have to be a servant again, and he was willing to pay the price for his own actions.
If he failed, death was also a solution.
He cherished life, but he didn’t want to live like a waste.

But what he didn’t expect was that, in that split second when he merged, the Heavenly Law was furious and immediately struck him down.

He should have died and had his soul scattered, but the funny thing was that, because the protagonist was right next to him, that thunder struck the Son of Fortune and scattered his soul into the small worlds, so the Will of Heaven did not intend to let him die, making him atone for his crime instead.

Like in the cultivation novel, the Son of Fortune was also beautiful, strong, and miserable in the other small worlds, extremely tragic at first.
He had to protect the Son of Fortune, become his golden finger, and allow the Son of Fortune to climb to the top.

This was coercion.
Lin Sui didn’t have the right to say no, he was simply kidnapped and brought here.

This was the first world, his identity was that of a respected, arrogant and domineering rich young master doted on by many, and his old lover, the original protagonist he was linked to, was a pitiful and lowly illegitimate child.

[The Son of Fortune has appeared! Quickly go to him and provide assistance, protect him!]

The System’s voice suddenly rose, urging Lin Sui.

Lin Sui’s line of sight fell on the centre of the horse track, looking like he was watching a show.

The young man wearing stable hand’s clothes was shoved down to the ground, and silently faced a scolding.

“How rubbish, you can’t even lead a horse, are you just waiting for me to fall to my death so you can be the eldest young master?”

Yan Zhou held a horse whip in his hand, cursing extremely violently.

The people standing around were all watching the scene cross-armed, everyone knew the person lying on the ground was the Yan family’s illegitimate son.
His mother was an outsider who sneakily got pregnant and sent him back to the Yan family at sixteen years old.
After taking a paternity test, the Yan family’s head was forced to pinch his nose and recognise this child, bringing him into his home.

But to say he was raised at home just meant that he was tormented at home, that’s all.
Yan Zhou was not a person with a good character and, faced with the sudden appearance of this illegitimate younger brother, he was in as bad a mood as he could be, switching the ways in which he bullied him, while the Yan family’s head turned a blind eye to it.
As long as he didn’t do anything too excessive, he wouldn’t care.

Yan Zhou never pretended to be family, he wanted everyone to step on this illegitimate son, so the bastard child would become the circle’s punching bag.

The System was still urging him in his mind, almost about to threaten him with electrocution, but the more it was like this, the more Lin Sui was like Six Dynasties mountain, majestic and unmoving.

It was just that, when the whip in Yan Zhou’s hand fell down on the young man’s body, the space between his eyebrows twitched, and he somewhat unexpectedly stood up.

Yan Zhou’s hand had not been light, and he stared at the wound on Yan Qin’s body, his face carrying twisted pleasure, but he suddenly realised that the surrounding voices had withdrawn and it had become strangely quiet.

He subconsciously turned his head, seeing that ancestor, young master Lin, watching him with a smile that didn’t reach his eyes, and he subconsciously shivered.

“A-Sui, was I being too loud for you? It seemed to me like you weren’t too happy just now, do you want to vent your anger?”

Yan Zhou’s attitude immediately made a 180 degree turn, the anger in his face completely fading, and rather flatteringly handed the horse whip to Lin Sui.

The tall, curled up young man lifted his head, exposing a pair of cold, deep eyes.

Although his whole face was bruised, one could see that he was pretty good-looking.
With a tall and straight nose bridge, sword eyebrows and star eyes4, even though his difficult position was difficult to hide, he gave off a feeling that was particularly unlike everyone else.

Lin Sui looked at the bruises and traces of a beating on his face, lightly curling his lip.

He had a beautiful face, and he looked good when he smiled, but instead of moving people’s hearts, it caused the spines of everyone present to tremble.

“What a sorry mess, ah.”

Lin Sui crouched down and used the horse whip to lift Yan Qin’s chin, carefully scrutinising his appearance, and sighed with what seemed to be a feeling of pity.

The first time he and Yang Qin met, he had also been in a mess like this.
Yan Qin, wearing black clothes, beheaded the monster he had been in the middle of hunting, throwing him a bottle of wound medicine and saying: “The human cauldron constitution isn’t suited for this.”

He knew Yan Qin had good intentions, because it was possible for him to die at any time while hunting monsters, but Yan Qin didn’t understand.
Knowing he couldn’t do it, but wanting to do it anyway, was sometimes not due to stupidity, but rather an unwillingness to resign himself.

He was greedy when other people were afraid, and his ambitions would not end even in death.

Coming in contact with his beautiful, obsidian eyes, Yan Qin only felt nauseous.
This kind of false concern was no different from crocodile tears.

Lin Sui caught sight of Yan Qin’s deeply hidden hatred and derision, appearing like a faintly pulsing cold flame.

Lin Sui knew that he must be holding a grudge.
He was like a weak young wolf who was waiting until he grew strong to expose his fangs and tear his prey to shreds without the slightest hesitation.

“How about I help you dig out your eyes if you use them to look at me like that again?”

Lin Sui beamed as he spoke, looking like he was having a friendly discussion.

System: [Watch your words!]

Lin Sui innocently said: [I’m playing the role of my character.]

He had no interest in really hurting Yan Qin.

A chill ran down the spines of everyone around him, because they knew that the little devil could do what he said he would to do.

Yan Zhou looked excited, he didn’t dare speak in case Lin Sui changed his mind, but he was looking forward to Lin Sui making a move.
How could a blind person vie against him? Moreover, this wouldn’t be of his own doing.

Yan Qin lowered his brows, hiding his malice and viciousness.
He couldn’t directly face Lin Sui yet.

“Fairly sensible, but did I let you lower your head?”

Lin Sui was still praising him with his first words, but changed his face with his last.

He pressed his hand against Yan Qin’s nape and pushed him down towards the ground.

Yan Qin’s face was pressed against the pasture, the pressure against his nape made him unable to lift his head.
The clumps of grass densely clustered together blocked his breathing, causing his face to quickly turn red, and the threat of death was particularly vivid.

He struggled miserably, and the strength behind his back suddenly loosened.
He greedily sucked in fresh air, and his somewhat blurry sight watched the still crouching young man who was smiling by his side.

He watched as the young man wiped his fingers as though they were dirty, then threw his handkerchief on his face.

When the soft cloth touched his cheek, he heard the young man’s distinctively irritating voice.

“Yan Zhou, lend him to me, my family’s Wuyun just passed away.”

Wuyun was the young master’s most beloved German shepherd, who had died of old age a few days ago.

Yan Qin looked at the young man’s slim back, and a rusty taste emerged in his mouth.

Lin Sui.

He repeated this name in his mind, filled with eerie malice.

Lin Sui didn’t look at the person laying on his stomach on the ground again, his face unchanging as he entered the club.
It was only when he walked inside the restroom of the private resting room that he leaned on the sink and retched.

The System was really ruthless, ah, he almost passed out from the shocks.

The System cursed him without restraint: [You (beep——) what are you doing! Who told you to treat him like that! I knew you weren’t a good thing!]

Lin Sui listened as his brain was filled with blocked words, washing his hands unhurriedly.

If the System had a material form, he reckoned it would jump out to point at him and curse.

“Of course I’m not a good thing, haven’t you always known?”

Lin Sui watched his pale face on the mirror, slowly hooking his lips.

“As far as protecting him…..
I’ll protect him like the original host protected Wuyu, isn't that a right and proper thing?”

His beautiful brows overflowed with doubt: “Am I doing it wrong?”

The System knew he was doing it on purpose, and it was so angry it nearly had a stroke.

Lin Sui listened as it’s words became chaotic, and his smile became even more pure.

Even if it was the Heavenly Law, it shouldn’t order him around.



1 成王敗寇 lit.
succeed king, lose bandit.
From the longer ‘called a king if successful, called a bandit if defeated’ Meaning that, in a struggle for power, the winners are legitimised and the losers are vilified.
Like the saying ‘A thief passes for a gentleman when thieving has made him rich’. Top.

2 Text says 點家修真文里 which I think is referring to a cultivation novel from the website Qidian? I used the word ‘xuanhuan’ since apparently Qidian is popular for its fantasy/cultivation adventure novels aimed at a male audience. Top.

3 Human cauldron/furnace or vessel.
Basically a type of person whose constitution dooms them to be used up by other cultivators and drained of their vitality, and who can’t really cultivate on their own. Here’s a slightly longer explanation. Top.

4 Describes a handsome, heroic appearance.
Sword eyebrows are thick and straight, star eyes are bright and piercing. Top.


T/N: What’s up.
I picked this novel up the other day and I was having fun with it, so I figured I’d put it here.
Updates will be a little sporadic until I’m finished with Life Going Wild With Plug-Ins, but I’ll try to not leave too much time between chapters.
