Devil Venerable Also Wants To Know – Chapter 2.1 – The Witch of Xuanyuan Sect

Yin Hanjiang heard the unfinished words and understood that Devil Venerable Wen Renhe mainly wanted to ask him what he thought of love. To be honest, Yin Hanjiang didn’t understand it either.

When he was young, he was picked up by the Lord and brought back to Xuanyuan Sect from the graveyard. He always followed the Lord’s orders and never expressed his subjective opinion. Although Wen Renhe’s words remained unspoken, he lowered his head and said, “The Lord’s preference is this subordinate’s belief.”

If his Lord liked reading the script, Yin Hanjiang would collect all scripts in this world. If the Lord liked women or men, Yin Hanjiang would bring for his Lord all the people he liked; The Lord’s order was Yin Hanjiang’s command.

Wen Renhe gazed at Yin Hanjiang, who was kneeling on one knee in front of him, and recalled the plot that filled his mind these days.

According to the plot in the book, Yin Hanjiang did exactly what he said just now.

Yin Hanjiang, inAbusive Love Affair: You are the only one I will never change, as the fourth male lead, was the second male lead, Wen Renhe’s trusted aide, with habitually silent temperament, docile and obedient towards Baili Qingmao. Wen Renhe liked Baili Qingmao, so when he couldn’t take care of her, he would send Yin Hanjiang to protect her. Yin Hanjiang was beaten, poisoned, injured and even nearly lost his life for Baili Qingmiao, without even a word of complaint. He didn’t even reveal his feelings for Baili Qingmiao. The most explicit thing he said was during the crisis. Yin Hanjiang let Baili Qingmiao escape first and said in a hoarse voice, “If I live, you live. But if I die, you will still live.”

Which girl could resist such a loyal, handsome man who showed his love through his actions? In the early stage of the novel, Yan Hanjiang was even more popular than Wen Renhe. Even Baili Qingmiao, who was hanging on He Wenchao, said with tears that she would forever owe him her life and would never be able to pay him back.

All readers, including Wen Renhe, who read this book, thought that Yin Hanjiang was deeply in love with Baili Qingmiao. Who would have thought that when he heard of Wen Renhe dying for Baili Qingmiao, Yin Hanjiang……

Recalling what he had read in the plot four to five times over and over again, he asked, “You are loyal and devoted when this lord is here. But what if one day this lord is gone?”

Hearing Wen Renhe’s words, Yin Hanjiang’s body shook and his arm on the ground trembled slightly. It seemed that the mere thought of the possibility that Wen Renhe would die made it difficult for him to bear. Yin Hanjiang was unwilling to think about the possibility of him dying, but when he was asked this question, he forced himself to think about it. However, after a long time, Yin Hanjiang’s forehead was full of cold sweat, which obviously showed he was pushing himself to the extreme.

After a long time, he squeezed out the answer from between his teeth, “This subordinate will die before the Lord.”

Hearing it, Wen Renhe pulled his sleeve and inadvertently wiped off the cold sweat from Yin Hanjiang’s forehead. His actions were very gentle, but his words were very merciless, “If this lord has an unfinished matter, would you be allowed to die?”

Yin Hanjiang’s pupils trembled and his posture changed from kneeling on one knee to kneeling on both knees. His palms pressed to the ground as he bowed his head deeply and said, “This subordinate doesn’t know.”

He didn’t know but Wen Renhe knew.

In the book, before Wen Renhe died, he ordered Yin Hanjiang to protect Baili Qingmiao. In the book, Wen Renhe thought that Yin Hanjiang also liked Baili Qingmiao and would be able to take his place and protect her well. Yin Hanjiang did it and stood by and kept following Baili Qingmiao closely.

At the same time in the plot inexplicably appeared Ghost Face. He was everywhere, using every means to injure Baili Qingmiao. When Baili Qingmiao was wounded, he sprinkled bone powder on her wound; when Baili Qingmiao was unconscious, he threw her into the cave of ten thousand snakes; when Baili Qingmiao was alone, he set up an oil pan to refine oil from Baili Qingmiao. With every appearance, Ghost Face’s perversion escalated.

Readers had been guessing Ghost Face was a malicious female supporting character in disguise. Although the description in the book stated it was a man, it was not difficult for women to disguise as a man by wearing men’s clothes.

Unexpectedly, one time, when Baili Qingmiao and Yin Hanjiang were hunted by Ghost Face and hid in the cave, Baili Qingmiao said softly, “Brother Yin, luckily there’s you by my side.”

“Really?” Yin Hanjiang asked.

Baili Qingmiao was extremely tired as she leaned against his back and was about to fall asleep when a corner of the package Yin Hanjiang had been holding was revealed. She looked at it intently and it was the ghost mask that had woken her up from nightmares countless times!

After Wen Renhe’s death, Yin Hanjiang finally did something against his orders. He wanted Baili Qingmiao to suffer all kinds of torture and die. He wanted Baili Qingmiao to be buried and made into an everlasting soul lamp which burned day and night for Wen Renhe to illuminate the road as he passed by.

His previous care was not because of his admiration for Baili Qingmiao, but because he was asked to do so by Wen Renhe, so he put Baili Qingmiao’s safety to his heart. When he heard that his Lord died because of Baili Qingmiao, he only wanted to hack this woman in thousands of pieces.

While reading the book, Wen Renhe didn’t understand Yin Hanjiang’s way of thinking. Only after asking was he able to understand Yin Hanjiang’s pain. The first difficult problem from the book was finally solved.

“Come on, stand up,” said Wen Renhe.

Yin Hanjiang got up steadily after rubbing his right sleeve on the side of his lips. Wen Renhe grabbed his right arm and his nose caught a trace of bloody smell at the cuff.

Being forced to imagine the Devil Venerable’s death made Yin Hanjiang very miserable. Wen Renhe, who had witnessed plenty of massacres and suffering, was also somewhat moved.

At this moment, Wen Renhe was not as deeply in love as he was in the book, so he didn’t feel that there was anything wrong with what Yin Hanjiang did. The people who followed the devil path were not so selfless, if you can’t have it, destroy it. It was extremely normal for them to take others with them to the grave.

He just wanted to say to Yin Hanjiang in the book, “Well done!”

Incidentally, the Devil Venerable could be beaten in the book, just like the female lead with brain problems. It was absolutely impossible for Wen Renhe to accept that he too had abandoned everything for the sake of love.

Why would he fall deep into it, unable to extricate himself? Why did Baili Qingmiao like He Wenchao so much that she lost herself and was willing to be with him after being harmed countless times? Why did the malicious female supporting characters in the book frame an innocent woman for He Wenchao?

There were too many things that Wen Renhe didn’t understand.

Yin Hanjiang answered a question for him, but there were more questions awaiting for the Devil Venerable to understand.

Wen Renhe placed his palm on Yin Hanjiang’s chest and injected some genuine Qi to heal him. Yin Hanjiang didn’t resist and allowed Wen Renhe’s overbearing genuine Qi to enter his Dantian to help him suppress his soul force – which was restless because of his unstable state of mind.

After his treatment of Yin Hanjiang was completed smoothly, Wen Renhe instructed, “Order the Right Protector to come to the Council Hall.”

    An interesting take on the “plugging in brain holes in a webnovel” genre. I like how methodical MC is, even if he has a blind spot when it comes to ML.

    Overall great translation, but allow me to make a small correction:
    Instead of “The people who followed the devil path, were not so selfless. It was extremely normal for them to die and bury each other together.”
    It should be something along the lines of “The people who followed the devil path were not so selfless, if you can’t have it, destroy it. It was extremely normal for them to take others with them to the grave.”
    Thank you very much for your hard work and for sharing this novel here!

    I’ve just discovered this novel and I’m still catching up with the chapters. This seems pretty interesting and I like how Wen RenHe tries to understand feelings so distant to him and in the meantime realizing the idiocy of some of the book characters behaviours..Thanks
