    Nope. He's his master's eldest disciple (seniority-wise), and shiyi means junior sister iirc. However, she's also his aunt for some reason.

    Please allow me to apologise. Last week, I messed up and posted chapter 31 as chapter 30, chapter 32 as chapter 31 and so forth, so we missed a chapter. I have now corrected it, so please re-read chapter 30 with the correct contents. Additionally, I've unlocked chapter 34, too, so there's two chapters for you to read today.

    You don't need to re-read chapter 31-33.

    Again, I apologise for my mistake.

    Not married yet. I have not read the raws, so I don't know the future. But, most probably she won't marry. She loves a bald da~ge(elder brother, but no idea on who he is)

    It's not forced. It's not even an unwanted arranged marriage. She chose to marry him for influence. She arranged the marriage. She decided his influence is worth marrying for.

    Yes and no. She is being forced by the circumstances to marrry and that is even worse than simple brute force since it is more difficult to solve.
    I don't like this kind of plot because normally it become a tragedy that won't be changed by the author.
    And this one i think is the worst tragedy and simply don't like it.

    I know as much as you do. Whatever you've read, is whatever I'd read and translated. I'm not ahead of you guys. I think the female that just trollerinoed Wang Jinsun might've been his aunt. I don't translate BL, no.

    lol, honest, not sure if this comment is serious or joking given the comedy tag and anecdotes.
    Side note, she doesn't support him, it's him that's she's using to support herself.

    P.P.S. For anyone who cares, the author has been credited with the popularisation of the "retirement" genre in China, which is getting more popular now. I'm genuinely happy for him.

    She most definitely is not being forced to marry. She's basically a princess. She can do whatever the heck she wants. And even if she was, it wouldn't be a forced marriage as it's her choice.

    I am half serious. I already was burned by more than one author forcing domeone to marry for, power, ambition, etc and make a tragedy out of this relationship with made me drop fun and liked novels.
    That is why i asked since i am liking this novel and this could be a let down for me.

    I won't argue since now i just begun vol 2 so i can't give specific example.
    However :
    Yes, not even the emperor could have his way with everything in the world. During the time Liu Shan Men lost power, the emperor’s entourage did all they could to fulfill their roles and serve, so should they be rewarded or not? The Qilin Guards shed much blood in their battles to suppress the influence and power of the evil sects. All their victories came at the cost of much bloodshed on their side, so shouldn’t they be rewarded? He can’t just promote Liu Shan Men citing friendship as the reason.
    Well so if even the rmperor can't promote liu shan men as long as she want to do it she is forced by the circumstances to marry. ....
    Yes if she abandon her ambition wish and dream ....she isn't forced to marry however i can't see she doing it. So yes she is forced to marry.

    In that case, I don't hold the answer for what happens down the road. Purely via extrapolation, it sounds backwards if everything SYR is doing is forcing her further into the marriage, though. Doesn't that mean LSM is going into further decline, and hence she would have to rely more on SO, whereas if TY, SX, MFZ and everyone else actually did their jobs successfully, then LSM would regain its standing, thereby reducing the need for her to be locked into the marriage? I can't reason my way to her doing everything she does with the goal of burying herself. Furthermore, I can't fathom the brotherhood being so incompetent that they'd utterly fail in her duty, thereby forcing her into the marriage to support LSM.

    I think that answers what you said here below your first comment, as well.

    EDIT: Posted my reply in the quote like a moron and had to move it.

    This story almost like one punch man, lot of side character and villain, even the author bothered to explain their background their fav underwear fav food etc etc, meanwhile our mc only had a very very few screen time, and when the fight begin, it already ended after 1-2 glance from mc

    Well you are probaly right if the plot develop like that. I just begun vol 03 and i am beginning to think like you.
    However the problem of this kind of plot is once it start rolling it is difficult to stop.

    Lets say she doesn't need to marry anymore. There are 3 great problems and a lot of small ones she has to solve.
    1-her reputation since she is breaking the engagement.
    2- backlash from the fiance background.
    3- make so that breaking the engagement isn't a weakness for enemies to exploit.

    This 3 are the basic. Well you can say the author can throw the mc there and solve all.
    However my impression of the author is that he likes logic in his setting . So this problems have to be properly solved for the engagement to be broken.
    This properly solved is the problem. Because if the author isn't satisfied with the solution he can just throw this as tragedy.... henceforth my fear.
