Chapter 123 Finale PART 3
Although this is the final chapter but the adventure of the “runway” doesn’t end here.
When the group of the travelers just got out of town, they met an acquaintance outside the city gate.
“General Yu, allow me to go with you to the ancestral home. Tan Tai Ye Lie with fist in his hands, sincere like a beggar with his request.
“You?” Su Ling asked in cold voice, “Why?” He has always suspect that this Tan Tai kid came to the family, is not simply to only seek medical treatment, he basically did not act for a very long time, when Su Ling thought that he already left, he did not expect him to be waiting there.
Tan Tai Ye Lie’s remained upright, even with the cold words from Su Ling, he did not show any hint o embarrassment, not humility and no sign of offense.
Su Su stared at Ye Lie and her the tone is not very friendly, she asked, “Is this the real reason why you followed me back home?”
Tan Tai Ye Lie gaze at Su Su with apologetic look, “I am unworthy Su Su, not I that I do not want to say to you, but if I did, you will not take me with you, but I must see the patriarch, grandfather have a message for him.”
Su Su wiped her mouth, she can’t ignore the discomfort in her heart but she is not angry, only this time she has nothing to do with him and will just ignore him,
Su Ling looked at this young man, he was very calm, firm in his purpose. Su Ling admired this man so he decided not to embarrassed him anymore, “Since, it is Fu Chang’s idea, then you can come with us.”
“Thank you Great General Su! “ Tan Tai Ye Lie was so happy and he quickly mount up his horse to catch up with them.
Su Ling remained uneasy and angry while travelling and it cause the whole atmosphere along the way to be solemn. The ancestral home is 10 days away, but if they travel quickly, they will reach there on the ninth day.
The Su ancestral home was located in the middle of the mountain peaks, it has magnificent atmosphere and from afar it looked like a hanging garden in the middle of green mountains. It was a sight to behold. Before the New Year, Su Ling sent a messenger to inform that that after New Year he will take Gu Yun and Su Su back to the ancestral home. They were still at the foot of the mountain, the people in the villages already knew they are coming.
Su Su barely reached the door of the mansion, when she was already enthusiastically rushed inside by two warm figures. Good thing that she is bigger now, because she was covered by tight hugs from her old relatives.
Su Su is beaming with joy and called out the name of his grandfather, “ Grandpa Yan. Granpa Quan!”
Su Yan, Su Yu and Su Quan, and grandma, they are passed 70 years old, but should we say that as they grew older the younger they became, two of the elderly, contrary to one might expect are more energetic and strong compared when they were younger. Seeing Su Su, the only daughter born in the family, two old grandpas touched her head lovingly and said,”Su Su is here, let Grandpa see you. You are very thin, sure enough your father didn’t take care of you!” After saying, Su Yan didn’t forget to turn and stare at Su Ling. Su Ling has long been used to this. He just ignored the two yelling old man and took Gu Yun inside the house.
Su Su pinched her to show and smiled back, “No, look! I’ve grown a lot of meat.”
“Where’s the meat? You are as thin like a little monkey. Certainly your father is not taking care of you, this time to do not go back, stay and grandpa will do a good work and cook delicious foods to make up for it.”
Su Su pretended to vomit and decided not to continue this topic, and asks hurriedly, “Why don’t I see Grandpa Su patriarch?”
“Oh, he’s just got out of the gate, we arrange your quarters first and if there’s anything else that can wait until tomorrow. We will go around; grandpa takes you to eat delicious food. “The two were embracing her as they walked her inside the house, all their heart and attention were on Su Su and completely ignored the other people standing behind her.
In the end of three days, Su Su together Mo Yuan and Tan Tai Ye Lie were amusing themselves and strolling around the ancestral home. But the three were not really enjoying themselves because their minds were preoccupied with other things. Fortunately, on the morning of the fourth day, the three finally waited until the patriarch invited them to the cave to offer sacrifices to the ancestors.
This cave is semi-circular cave and closed at one side. It was very spacious and the it has a lot of semi natural human cavity pits as high as the waist. The cavity pits have spiritual tablets on them. Her father forbade her to enter the cave for so many years, now that she was able to come, she was happily looking around.
She saw Su patriarch with a wooden box in his hand, came out from the depths of the cave. Su Su smiled and rushed forward, calling him, “ Grandpa! Grandpa!”
Su Qing raised his hand to touch her head. He saw Su Ling standing beside Gu Yun. His eyes flashed a smile of relief, “Ling, at last you get over it.”
Su Ling had a cold face since entering the cave, or let say his mood started even from the beginning of the trip back to the ancestral home. He has been immersed in a restless and frightened mood. Fortunately, Gu Yun has been keeping him company, patiently appeasing him. Su Ling did not come further but pulled his wife and daughter to leave.
Su Qing knew that for Su Ling to accomplish coming with wife and daughter was not an easy thing to accomplish. He did not say anything more, and turned to the man behind Su Su. The man was very young, but from head to toe he has an aura of cold and desolation. Such indifference doesn’t match his age. Su Qing laughed.
“This. I guess is the young master of Mo Family?”
The old man’s voice is gentle but powerful. He is very thin and dressed in a plain white robe, with a beard and head full of white hair, and emanating from within is a wind like that of an immortal, he doesn’t speak elegantly, however, just by standing in front of him, he could feel the vigorous qi coming out from his body. As for Mo Yuan, he doesn’t dare make a sound.
Mo Yuan humbly nod, “Patriarch Su, my name is Mo Yuan.”
Su Qing reached his hand to touch Mo Yuan’s face. He seemed to be very satisfied and smiled, ” Very well, Mo Yuan.”
Then he noticed the young man standing next to Mo Yuan, he asked him, “You are…”
Tan Tai Ye Lie made a fist salute, respectfully introduced himself. ” This young man is Tan Tai Ye Lie, my grandfather is Fu Chang Ming, he asked me to bring you a message.”
When he heard the name “Fu Chang Ming”, his eyes sparkled, but he didn’t say anything and also did not asked him for the message, he simply nodded and smiled. “Good.”
There are not many people in the cave, there is the Su Ling’s family, Mo Yuan, Li Yang and Tan Tai Ye Lie. Besides the patriarch, there is also Su Quan. Su Yan and Su Ren and two more old people. This line of people was standing in the middle of the cave, surrounded by tablets of the ancestors from four walls, the atmosphere instantly became cold and gloomy and reverent.
After a long silence, Su Qing finally broke the quietness inside the cave, “The second piece of bagua disk has presented itself to the world for its power to be used.”
Su Su opened her eyes and asked, “Grandpa patriarch, do you know about the second piece of bagua disk?”
Su Qing sighed, the eyes have been dreary after the silence showing the vicissitudes of time, “Thousands of years ago, the world has three spiritual stones. It is said that if you possessed the three stones, one can actually master the universe, power to change the world and one’s destiny. In that year, Su Family bagua disk also originally like Lingshi, an ordinary looking stone. Thousands of year’s pasts, to assist Ming Jun to annihilate the soul stealing demons, he had to sacrifice two of his children in the furnace to recast the sword and put the souls of his children on the swords. The recasting of Bian Lian and Chu Xie were successful at that moment but on the very same moment the Lingshi stone shattered and the golden bagua disk became existent for use. Why it broke open that time nobody really knew. However, from that moment also, the family paid the price for the sacrifice. In Su Family for thousands of years was cursed, we only have sons, no daughters. The family knew the existence of two other Lingshi, and inside must also contain the bagua disk. We don’t know why the second Lingshi suddenly broke and the bagua disk now presents itself to the world also a thousand years after.
“No daughter? I’m I not a daughter, ” muttered Su Su.
Su Qing rubbed Su Su’s head and sighed, “Bagua disk of the family is the guardian of time and space. The power of the disk brought a person from another time and space and she broke the thousand-year curse against the family, that’s why we are given this child.”
Su Su was somewhat stunned, who is that person ? Who is the that person he is referring to?
Facing the eyes of the crowd with doubts or inquisitive look, Gu Yun confidently smiled and said, “That person is me.”
“Mommy?!” Su Su was shocked, only to see her father to grab her waist, put her steady in his arms. Her mother just smiled and softly said, “ I am not supposed to be here, it just happened one of the evidence on the exhibit is the bagua disk, then all of the sudden, I just found myself here.”
Gu Yun did not gave anymore details of what “not supposed to be here” people just look at her with complex and different expressions, in the end they did not ask for more.
“What power does the Mo family’s bagua disk represent?” Su Ling’s biggest concern is that Mo Family bagua disk will harm Gu Yun and Su Su.
Su Qing sighed, “I don’t know, only the Mo family patriarch knows. “
Su Ling looked at Mo Yuan. Mo Yuan just shook his head. Thinking about it now, he realized that Mo family has a lot of stories and secrets that he did not know.
“Could the Young Master of Mo show us the purple-gold bagua disk?” Su Qing’s request pulled back the mind of Mo Yuan from wandering, he immediately took out the purple-gold bagua disk from his sleeves and handed it over.
Su Qing also opened wooden box in his hand, and took out the gold gossip plate.
Gu Yun wanted to get closer to see it clearly, but she felt the pain on her waist. When she raised up her eyes, he met that black pair of eyes, inside is unquenchable shade of pain. Gu Yun pulled back her foot and decided to stay in her place.
Su Su however stood very close to the bagua plates and carefully making a comparison. Besides the color, two bagua plates regardless of size, texture, thickness, pattern, was exactly the same. It just a little strange, the two bagua disk when not together, as she remembered when she’d seen it, although they have brilliant colors, they are not as dazzling as they are now. There was certain indescribable energy flowing between them.
Mo Yuan looked at two disks, also sensing the energy flowing between them, he hesitated for a long time, before whispering, “The patriarch, if … Mo Yuan can find a third piece of bagua disk, the Su Family piece of gold bagua disk, can I borrow it for the Mo family to use? “
Su Qing looked at him. He looked deeply at his eyes and he knew that the old man understood clearly the affairs of the past and the world. Mo Yuan felt that he can’t do anything but only stand there and ask frankly. For a long time, just when Mo Yuan thought that the patriarch would refuse, he was heard saying, “Yes, I can lend it to you.”
Mo Yuan was stunned, that he even forgot to say thank you.
Su Su was rejoicing in her heart. She really wanted to help Mo Yuan find the three bagua disk to gain the power of it and solve the problem of Mo Family’s shortened life existence.
Su Su wasn’t satisfied and pestered her grandfather Su Qing with question, “Grandfather, do you know where’s the third gossip disk is?”
Su Qing returned the purple gold disk back to Mo Yuan, while saying, “In fact, the third piece of Lingshi is not difficult to find. The Yong Mu tribe ( Perpetual Race) that always guard the mountains and forests, at the same time, they are also the guardian of Lingshi. But thirty years ago it was stolen, luckily Ao Tian recovered the stone and gave it back. Now this stone should be in the hands of the Yong Mu patriarch. However, so far I have not heard if the third piece of stone is opened, if not the Lingshi remains only as Lingshi.”
At this time, Tan Tai Ye Lie seemed to remembered something. He hastily stepped forward and said, “The patriarch, grandfather said that the power of the Lingshi, lies in the blood.”
“Blood?” Gu Yun’s doubts seemed to get a little explanation and she said, “ I was taken to this place because my hand was wounded and my blood stained the gold bagua disk. The Lingshi where the purple disk was hidden also came in contact with the blood of Su Su, it split open then suddenly the purple disk presents itself to the world. The so-called ‘spirit stone power lies in the blood’ meaning to say that the opening of the Lingshi is determined by the blood and if we cannot find the person who can open the third stone, the last piece of bagua disk is useless.”
Gu Yun turned her gaze at Tan Tai Ye Lie and asked, “What else did Fu Chang Min said?”
Tan Tai Ye Lie recalled his grandfather’s instructions, finally shook his head, replied, “Grandfather did not say anything more and just asked me to find a way to prevent my father to get hold of the Lingshi, and if there is a chance to see the patriarch, bring this message to him.”
Su Su’s face turned bitter, sighed, “Now that the last stone is known, but where can we find the blood that will open it, whose blood?” This puzzle much more difficult than looking for the whereabouts of the Lingshi, there is no clue!
Su Qing gently smiled, as he carefully put back the yellow gold bagua disk inside the wooden box, gave it to Mo Yuan, meaningfully looked at Tan Tai Ye Lie and smiled, “Well, you should find Fu Chang Ming and ask, he may know.”
Although, Mo Yuan did not say anything, but Su Su can feel his discouragement. Su Su came to him, gently pulled his sleeve, whispered, “Mo Yuan, don’t be like this, at least we know the whereabouts of another stone. The patriarch’s grandfather said to open the third piece of Lingshi, it needs a blood, perhaps in the more we investigate, we will find more clue? I’ll accompany you and find it with you!”
Although Su Su whispered it very quietly, but who in Su family doesn’t have a deep cultivation, everyone has powerful endogenic energy, naturally everyone heard it. Su Yan was the first to be launch an attack, stomp his feet, angrily said,” Su Su, what is between you and this rascal from Mo Family?”
Su Su bit her lip and sighed, “What’s wrong?”
Su Yan was not willing part with such treasured girl, turned to look at Mo Yuan, angrily,” Young joker from Mo Family, say something.”
Mo Yuan also did not abandon Su Su to be pressed by the elders for an answer, he gently pulled her behind him and pondered how to answer, then earnestly said, “Mo Yuan lives with admiration and love for Su Su, I wish to join hands with her for a lifetime…”
Mo Yuan have not finished his sentence, Su Yan already flew into rage, “This rascal from Mo family actually want to marry our little Su Su?” No, no. Su Su is too young!”
Su Quan did not care at all, smiling gleefully, “The Mo family and our family are also in terms of social status are perfect match.”
“What nonsense are you saying that our families are well matched, the most important thing is that Su Su has love of all the family, but that person should also measure up to our family’s only treasure!”
From this little issue, the two elders actually started quarreling and finally at the end of it, their fury was disseminated on Mo Yuan.
Su Yan furiously said, “Mo Yuan, you need to compete with us, if you passed then we will allow you to admire our family’s treasure. Let’s try your martial arts first, if your martial arts is not good, how can you protect our family’s treasure.”
“No!” Su Su hurriedly stood in front of the body of Mo Yuan, quickly said, “Mo Yuan was poisoned earlier, his body has not recovered, no way he will be able to compete with martial arts tournament! “ Grandpa Yan’s power is deep and immeasurable , even if we say Mo Yuan can play but there is no guarantee that he can defeat him, granted that he practiced for another ten years, it is still not a guarantee that he can defeat Grandpa Yan!
Eyebrows frowned of the elders up, yelled unhappily, ” He can’t compete with martial arts competition because of that? What’s the point of martial arts!“
Su Su patted Su Yan’s shoulder, and then pointed using her mouth at the direction of Su Ling and Gu Yun, then said, “You are too anxious, ah, father and mother did not say anything.”
Su Yan chuckled heartily, then said, “Madam Yun, how about you to test this joker, see if he is worthy of Su Su,”
Su Ling looked into the eyes of Mo Yuan as if wishing to beat him to death.
Contrary to everyone’s expectation, Gu Yun smiled and said, “Let me say it in a a different way, Mo Yuan, I want to know what you think? “
Mo Yuan didn’t think much, replied, “Okay. “
Su Su glared at him and cried, “Not okay!“
Just when Su Su is pondering if she will argue strongly using reasons or act like a spoiled brat to get her way, outside the cave was a sudden noise, “ News.”
Su Ling said coldly, “What’s the matter?”
“According to the news gatherer in Liao Yue, Miss Chen is currently kidnapped in the Capital City of Liao Yue, here situation is critical!”
“What?! ” Su Su cried with exaggeration, “ Sister Chen crossed over to Liao Yue? How she was kidnapped! Nobody can bully my sister! Father and mother, you rest assured that I and Mo Yuan will give our full assistance to rescue sister Chen! While you discuss, we will leave first!”
Li Yang doesn’t know why Su Su pulled his master ferociously like her butt is on fire, for whatever reason, he immediately chased after them.”
“Su Su! “
Behind her she could hear the sound, but she dared not to turn her head, just grasping the hand of Mo Yuan, running fiercely and shouting, “Hurry, hurry.”
Looking at the three people running away hastily, Su Ling was angry,” This girl dares to run like this?”
Gu Yun look at the three people running away, laughed, “Well, they already run away, don’t get mad.”
” How can I not be angry? The cabbage, which has been carefully cared and loved for many years, was dug by a pig. “
Gu Yun felt funny, “What is the use of your anger. I can’t say for sure but perhaps for the benefit of the cabbage it took the snout of pig to dug it.”
Su Ling was furious in his heart hearing such reason, stared at Gu Yun, “How can there be such a mother!! ” Gu Yun not a least concerned replied, “The child has grown, if you care so much, just follow them.”
Su Su after pulling Mo Yuan to run down the mountain, they ran of air and grasping for breath, Su Su said while they are walking, “ Are you stupid? Don’t you remember, in our home competitions is okay but in no way you should compete with mother!”
Mo Yuan has not yet returned to his senses. His mind is somewhere else. He was thinking Su Su actually in front her family Elders dragged him out and ran away, the next time he sees General Su Ling, it would be a tragic scene.
Su Su saw that Mo Yuan was still in a daze and kicked his foot, “Did you hear what I say, ah?” But all he felt now was the pain on his foot and of bitter anguished!
Mo Yuan gently rubbed the head Su Su. Those delicate cold soft hair, its good to the touch. To pacify her grumpy temper, he laughed, “ Okay, from this time on I will listen to you. So, where are we going?”
Su Su start thinking, “Since, Sister Chen is in Liao Yue, the person who has the knowledge who has the ability to open the third Lingshi is in Liao Yue, then naturally we will go Liao Yue, we go there to get more clues.”
“Wait! “ Speaking of the more clues, Su Su suddenly thought of a person, “What about Tan Tai Ye Lie?”
Just now she concerned about Mo Yuan and grabbed him to run, she totally forgot that Tan Tai Ye Lie was there too! A pretended to cough to hide her embarrassment. “Well,” she shugged her shoulders, then laughed, “ He can go back to Liao Yue by himself.”
This was the way, Tan Tai Ye Lie’s friendship was toss aside by ‘a woman who pays more attention to lover than friends’, and he was drastically forgotten at the back of her head.
“Then go, let’s go and buy three horses at the market, and we’ll get there as soon as we can.”
Su Su is leisurely swinging her hands as she walks, “Don’t worry, from here to there is not very far, even if we walk slowly, we will get there in 10 days.”
“Aren’t you worried about your sister Chen?” She often talks about her two sisters, and the friendship they have should be very deep.
Su Su sneered, with a very proud smile, “If I have not known better, but for Sister Chen to be kidnapped in Liao Yue? She’s so smart and she’s a lot better than me in martial arts, and we’re getting the news now, my guess, she sends it out on purpose. “
After the New Year, spring came so soon, Su Su took a deep breath, the crisp air is refreshing making one’s senses awaken. The little fellow sleeping under her clothes woke up too, looking confused, two paws were grasping for her clothes as it tries to poke the head out of her bosom, grumbling.
Bajiao did not have the chance to enjoy the scenery because in an instant, he found himself being held by Mo Yuan.
Su Su strangely look at Mo Yuan while he took Bajiao by the neck, he flips it over and pick up Bajiao by the belly hair. Bajiao made a squeaking sound, he soft fur on its body is blown open.
Su Su find this strange and asked, “What are you doing?”
Mo Yuan turned it over again after a while, with sour face, he put Bajiao in his sleeve. “I will keep it fist and we will find a bag in the market to put it in.”
Su Su felt this is a bit funny, “Why make it troublesome? Bajiao is so small, it can hide inside my clothes easy.
Mo Yuan said coldly, “It’s a male.”
“Ah?” What does this have to do with being male or female?
Mo Yuan after walking out of a good distance, Su Su just suddenly back realized, Mo Yuan is ….jealous…
Jealous of silver fox?!
She was laughing so hard. Young Master jealousy looked so cute…hey hey hey!

Mistaken Marriage Match Books 5 Story if Lou Chen and Book 6 The Story of Yang Ning will conclude the mystery of bagua disk-
My last words for this book, I would like to thank the supporters and those who help edit some parts of the book. I am not a writer and English is not my first language, honestly my grammar is imperfect throughout. I don’t speak Mandarin nor read Mandarin and all parts of this book was translated using three machine translations ( Google, Microsoft Edge and Systran) and a Chinese dictionary ( Yellow bridge). I fell ill two years ago and during that time I discovered enjoyment reading Chinese Translated novels. It made me forget my problem and I ended up falling in love with series of Mistaken Marriage Match. When Nutty encountered some problems, translation became scarce, I did the translation privately for my own use. I would still that time wait for her updates . I completely felt how the others felt being left hanging. So, I opened a wordpress account and started sharing what I had. Some comments are very harsh especially from the grammar police,(like they spent a penny to make the translation happen), makes you sometimes wanting to give up. Translating isn’t easy and we do it for free. Sometimes, I just let it be whatever the MTL gives me, as long the head and the tail of the story is there. And there are some who steals your work and make money out of it. There are some also that kept you going and a constant reminder for me to go back and finish it because of their likes, some offers help in editing and those who leaves a post how they’re enjoying the story. I came back to write this last chapters for these readers… THANK YOU for the inspiration!
