The Sky Garden which was located in midair was considered to be a type of Sky Island.

There were mountain peaks that looked a bit like the Flying Mountain. However, the mountain peaks were linked together, forming a mountainous range of different heights. Furthermore, they were also bigger in size compared to the Flying Mountain. On the precipice of the mountain, there were more than ten waterfalls of different sizes that looked like white silk hanging from the mountains’ sides.

Between the mountains was a valley. In the valley, there was a garden where hundreds of flowers bloomed and butterflies fluttered about.

Normally no one lives here, but every so often, the Night Empress’ servants would come down from the Sixth Floor of the Tong Tian Tower. They would tidy up the place and safeguard it well as if Night Empress was living there. Other than that, the flowers and plants in the garden were personally planted by Luo Hua City Mistress.

Yue Yang and Luo Hua City Mistress were not in the mood to appreciate the beautiful scenery. Holding hands, they both flew up the Sky Island, passing through the beautiful garden and entering into the house.

Just as they both set foot on the floor, they impatiently hugged and kissed each other, demanding more of the other’s sweet affection.

After a long while, their lips parted.

Luo Hua City Mistress became embarrassed and lightly hit Yue Yang. This brat is too impatient, immediately playing tricks on her after arriving!

Her eyes became aroused as if intoxicated from rich and fine wine.

Yue Yang knew that her emotions were stirred.

Very tenderly, Yue Yan softened his movements, gently laying Luo Hua on the bed. He did not pervertedly pounce and press down on her. Instead, he sat on the bedside and softly hugged her. Then, he softly kissed her.

Sure enough, this technique greatly removed Luo Hua’s vigilance and shyness. With this move acting as a buffer, she did not resist his tricks anymore.

So much that, she was totally unaware as to when he had quietly laid on the bed and hugged her.

Her entire mind and body was engrossed in his kiss. Their lips and tongue touching.

The sweet, sweet kiss melted her body, making her as soft as silk.

His naughty hands lightly entered her clothes. Her body trembled from nervousness and expectation. Very softly… very softly he reached her womanly peaks… She bit his lips as she produced an extremely alluring yet suppressed moan from her throat. The sounds seemed to be full of pleasure, discomfort, resistance, endurance, pain, and happiness. Just as he bent his head down, she gasped continuously and powerlessly pushed him, trying to resist his next demand. However, she was unable to stop his slow and unstoppable kiss landing on her sensitive flower bud. Yet, she still tightly embraced him and emotionally wrapped him in her bosom.

She had already forgotten about everything else, not even the current year or month.

“Bastard, bastard, you big bastard. Don’t do that again, it’s too painful… Enough, you greedy bastard, you cannot bite it, it hurts … and too embarrassing, you are too aggressive!”

The beauty’s clothes were half removed, and she gasped for breath.

That bright gown was ruffled from his hands’ invasion.

Her rushed breathing, burning red cheeks, warm breath, intoxicated eyes and soft body; all of these show the beauty’s stirred up emotions.

His hands explored her body, overbearingly holding her twin peaks and proclaiming this virgin ground under his name. When his hands were mischievously making her body tremble, her small hands were sliding on his back, at a loss of what to do. She didn’t know if she should pull him closer or loosen a bit to allow his movements to become smoother.

It was the first time she had flirted like lovers with someone. She simply did not know how to react properly.

His kiss, oppressively robbing and sucking kiss, made her felt suffocated.

Practicing many time with Wu Hen’s body, Yue Yang’s flirting techniques was now definitely at the Grand Master Rank. Forget about Luo Hua City Mistress, who was still an unknowledgeable virgin, even the Sickly Beauty, Wu Hen, who had been pleasured by him many times now, could not resist it.

“S-stop, I can’t breathe……” Luo Hua City Mistress felt a kind of fire igniting inside her body. Her body was reacting peculiarly, as if something was quickly accumulating inside her, a pleasing and strange feeling. Especially when his naughty hands rubbed the two round meat on her chest, she felt an indescribable mind numbing feeling as if her body was thirsting for his oppression.

She felt that the more his hands moved down, the more the strange feeling inside her body become stronger.

She almost opened her mouth and begged him to quickly play his tricks on her so that she may break away from this situation that she made her feel edgy and restless.

However, just as Yue Yang’s hands begun invading her lower abdomen, her virgin’s sensitivity immediately made her body trembled slightly. She felt her own legs convulsing softly, from her thighs to her toes.

Subconsciously, Luo Hua City Mistress sandwiched his warm hands with her legs tightly, preventing him from advancing.

Luo Hua City Mistress looked at Yue Yang and knew that her most important moment had arrived.

Resisting the blushing shame in her heart, she lightly kissed him: “Scoundrel, you… you should take a bath first. I am a bit scared, let me recover a bit!”

Yue Yang quickly withdrew his hands and gently kissed her, until she shook her head and say that she was alright.

Maybe she truly needed to relax a bit.

Being too anxious for quick results was not good, it might leave a shadow in her heart.

Yue Yang decided to leave for a while, giving Luo Hua City Mistress time to first untie the knots in her heart. After all, this was a true union and not just kissing and hugging like before. Moreover, when a virgin offers her chastity, they would definitely have worries in their hearts. Even if it was their beloved person, she would still worry about her own body, whether it would hurt or not, whether it would be injured or not … She can only overcome these fears all by herself!

After Yue Yang finished taking a bath and returned, he discovered that Luo Hua City Mistress had tided up the entire bed as if it was new.

On the window hung a lucky red silk. Even the silver hooks in front of the canopy was tied with a red rope. A wedding dress was placed on the headboard. Also, a few brilliant red flowers were placed on the table in front, just at the right time when the flowers were in full bloom.

“It’s a pity there is no wine. Otherwise, I would have been able to share a nuptial cup with you. Even though this is not a wedding……” Luo Hua City Mistress had a bit of regret.

In fact she had a little longing for a marriage that was bustling with noise and excitement.

Sickly Beauty and the others were indifferent towards this. In any case, marriage was simply held to fulfill their elder’s wishes and to complete a social tradition. From the bride’s and groom’s point of view, most would say that it was a foolish waste of money. Looking at Princess Qian Qian’s attitude, she hated marriage the most, because the Royal Family’s marriage was extremely troublesome. From childhood to now, she had witnessed her brothers’ and sisters’ marriages and noticed that complete etiquette was necessary. As for those sister-in-laws that had married into her family, although they looked well-off from the outside, they secretly complained to her and felt that there were too many rules. It was truly too tormenting.

Only the youngest of them, Yi Nan, and the tender and virtuous Yue Yu were longing for marriage. Yi Nan longed that she would be able to sit on a big marriage sedan following Yue Yang, who was riding a big horse, and happily go to their new home with him. She would marry into the Yue Clan. After paying respects to the heavens and the earth, paying respects to each other, they would enter the bridal room and in the end she would become his new wife, his small lovable wife.

On the other hand, Yue Yu was a pure and traditional woman. She felt that marriage was one of life’s major events. It was not right if it was not grand.

Luo Hua City Mistress does not place importance in marriage ceremonies. She only thought that during her marriage ceremony, her father would be present, drinking wine with his friends or possibly picking a fight with someone.

Never mind that kind of big banquet to entertain everybody for a marriage ceremony. Luo Hua City Mistress felt that the most important thing was to complete the ceremony between husband and wife with her beloved.

Unfortunately she did not prepare in advance. Otherwise, she would have wished to exchange cups with him and share a nuptial cup of wine with him.

“Who said there’s no wine? Look!” Yue Yang brought out wine, cups and other things from inside the Lich Ring. Luo Hua City Mistress was so happy that she kissed him. At this moment, cuddling in her beloved’s arms, sharing a nuptial cup of wine with him, mutually blessing each other and promising to stay together forever, Luo Hua City Mistress felt so happy, as if happiness were gushing out from the depths of her heart. She raised her tearful eyes and shyly looked at her beloved. She noticed that he was especially heroic today. His handsome face glowed with a distinct radiance, making other’s hearts unable to endure trembling.

Above all, his electrifying eyes made others’ heartbeat thump. Looking at him face to face made her heart race, pounding fiercely within her chest.

In Yue Yang’s eyes, his lover had also become the most beautiful woman in the world.

Luo Hua, in his arms, was as beautiful as a dream.

Her snow white face glowed and her cheeks flushed red. It was as if she could not bear the strength of the alcohol and was filled to the brim with happiness.

Yue Yang bent his head and kissed her everywhere. Regardless of whether it was that glossy and fair forehead, her long eyebrows, small exquisite nose, scarlet cheeks, or swollen lips, they were all branded with a hot kiss from his deep love.

In the end, he carried the shy beauty who was covering her face and did not dare to look at him. Arriving at the bath side with scattered petals, he lightly took off her dress and underwear exposing her snow white body. He lightly poured fresh water on her, gently washing her delicate and powerless body. He washed away her worries, her fears, and also her shyness and reservation…

Luo Hua City Mistress trembled slightly. She closed her eyes tightly and did not dare look at him.

Her snow white body complied with his movements, granting him control.

Yue Yang carried the clean and flawless beauty up and used a silk towel to lightly wipe off the water droplets from her body. His heart sighed at her perfect, snow white body. This was truly the convergence of spirit energy from the heavens and earth, truly one of nature’s most finely crafted masterpiece.

The beauty had reached a perfect realm, not too thin nor too fat.

Her entire body can be compared to the most pure of gold…

Yue Yang couldn’t help bending his head and kissed the snow white beauty’s delicate skin, marking it and announcing that she would always belong to him. At the same time, he was leaving a new mark on her life.

After today, she would change and possess a new identity as his wife!

Luo Hua City Mistress was both proud and embarrassed. She loved to see his infatuated and foolish expression, loved to feel his gentle kiss and his attentive care.

“Scoundrel, be gentler!” Just as she was about to be put down on the bed by Yue Yang, she knew that her most important time had arrived. Although she had long ago prepared her heart, she was still nervous.

“Good girl, don’t be afraid!”

Yue Yang had first used the snow white quilt and lightly covered her nervously trembling body. Afterwards, he slowly crawl inside together with her, reached out his hands and lightly embraced her. As she felt their heart beat simultaneously, her nervous heart calmed down. His hands, burning hot like flames, gently explored her body, spreading the flames of desire everywhere. Her nervous body begun to gradually relax and grow softer, slowly burning up.

Yue Yang kissed her cherry lips for a long time.

And continued to kiss downwards.

He kissed her sensitive earlobes, kissed her ticklish neck, kissed her smooth and round shoulders, kissed her shallow collar bone, kissed her snow white skin, kissed her most beautiful jade peaks, kissed her white and tender flower bud… Luo Hua City Mistress could only gasp in short breaths and did not know how to do anything else. Even her reasoning had disappeared. She completely soaked in the pleasure that Yue Yang brought to her… Yue Yang continued downwards and kissed her abdomen. When he moved to her cute navel, he mischievously explored it with his tongue, making Luo Hua City Mistress tremble from head to toe.

In the middle of her stirred up emotions and bashful expectations, Yue Yang had softly opened her legs.

He left warm kisses on both of her slender thighs.

Her body trembled every time he kissed her. Until he naughtily kissed her most sensitive, most beautiful petal. Her flower was already flooded. When he kissed it, Luo Hua City Mistress’ ten fingers passed through his black hair as if resisting yet detaining him. The pleasure she had accumulated to the brim had now overflowed, along with an unsuppressable cry…

This kind of climax was unfamiliar to her yet also unimaginably wonderful.

She had never imagined her lover’s tricks would bring about this big wave of comfortable pleasure. It was truly unspeakably pleasing!

At this instant, her mind had become blank and she had lost all reasoning. It was as if her soul have followed the huge explosion from her climax and flew out of her body. As she continued to rise beyond the clouds, she became so elated that she did not know whether the world still existed or not.

Even after the tide had retreated, just as the remnant of her pleasure was slowly disappearing, she noticed that he was playing his tricks again, quickly bringing her another tide of pleasure.

At the moment before the tide had completely disappeared, another new tide quickly formed.

Her soul which almost returned once more flew up higher, and farther.

This scoundrel was too evil and simply wanted her life, she would certainly die…

After Luo Hua City Mistress’ second tide ended, some reason had returned to her. She hurriedly strived to pull up her beloved scoundrel, and did not allow him to continue his tricks. Otherwise she would definitely die, and happily suffocate! Despite the fact that his mouth was full of her nectar, Luo Hua City Mistress still kissed him emotionally. She gave him her small sweet tongue, showing that she was truly happy. Giving him this satisfying reward.

Not knowing when, many rune symbols floated up from their bodies.

The more intimate and more happily indifferent they were, the more the runes assemble abundantly and mysteriously.

Yue Yang’s Innate Qi came out from his mouth and entered Luo Hua City Mistress’ cherry lips. The runes circulated inside her body as they simultaneously performed [Double Body Fusion]. Luo Hua City Mistress was totally unaware of this and only cared about wrapping her body around him. She was unaware that her own body’s blood channels were being linked up. Her female private parts that Yue Yang couldn’t touch before, did not pose as a cultivation hindrance now that Yue Yang could pour Innate Qi from there… Now, she was about to become his little wife, her body and mind had completely been released, no matter what he tells her to do, she wouldn’t mind at all. Luo Hua City Mistress did not feel the slight pain from linking up her blood channels at all, on the contrary, the Innate Qi had stimulated her pleasure even further. His naughty hands also triggered her lust, making her feel restless.

A kind of thirst, a kind of natural instinct, emerged from her heart. It was an instinct that every mature living being, who thirst for their other half, feels.

Yue Yang knew what the beauty’s heart thirsted for. In fact, he also similarly thirsted for her.

Their union formally begun at this moment.

His high-spirited, burning hot and big lance proudly raised up high. As the knight’s charging signal echoed, it pointed towards that mysterious castle gate. The knight begun to advance and no force in this world could stop it.

Her life gate was as frail as flower petals. In the midst of the virgin’s cry of pain, she finally welcomed her new owner.

Red drops spilled out, witnessing the new owner’s subjugation.

Despite Yue Yang’s gentle movements, Luo Hua City Mistress still felt it hard to bear. Because his naughty thing was truly too big. Also her soft and delicate place was truly too small. At the moment he forcefully broke the barrier protecting her chastity, she could not endure it, and couldn’t help shouting that it hurts. Two crystal clear teardrops seeped out and slide down her face. Her lips couldn’t help but search for his comfort and kissed him… Although the pain was difficult to endure, she had long knew that she would have to go through this once. Only by saying good bye to her girlhood, saying goodbye to her chastity, could she truly link with him, truly become his inseparable partner and become his wife!

“Bastard. It’s so painful!” She weakly complained and acted like a spoiled child. She had the complete qualifications to do so because she had completely offered to her beloved her most precious thing. She belonged to him, body and mind, past, present and future.

“Don’t cry, don’t cry, good girl, don’t cry!” Yue Yang gently kissed her tears. Greatly comforting her pain of saying goodbye to her virginity.

After completing the fusion, Luo Hua City Mistress’ blood channels completely linked up with the help of his Innate Qi. Just as the Innate Qi returned to his body, Luo Hua City Mistress’ Grimoire suddenly appeared. A brilliant light cast itself onto her body, momentarily aroused her hidden potential. In an instant, the amassed energy burst out, and continuously leveled up with the assistance from Yue Yang’s Innate Qi. Rapidly breaking through Innate Rank… “bang”, a golden pillar dozen of metres high shot up straight up the sky from her Grimoire.

Luo Hua City Mistress finally successfully reached Innate Rank with the assistance of [Double Body Fusion].

Her Guardian Beast also shone and leveled up.

The Three-tailed Snow fox also bathed under the Golden Light Pillar and continuously absorbed the energy. Its body gradually transformed. It looked like a human form, like a Holy Beast, rapidly changed…

    Wow it truly amazes me that an experience this wonderful can exist and be described so well. Hats off to the writer and the translator for capturing the essence of the text so well!

  3. Vanaril says:

    ty for the chapter 🙂
    That was quite a clear description Oo
    I really want to know the spec of her Guardian beast now that it have evolve 😛

  4. DK says:

    Doesn’t this mean that there a number of flowers that City Mistress is now unable to touch with her new status of not virgin?
    Thanks for the chapter.

      • StayBlessed says:

        When I read that “also”, all it’s telling me is that the Fox is in the room, or in her summoning grimoire. I don’t see how that says that the Fox is her Guardian Beast. Like i said in my other comment, I don’t understand why that matters anyway. Of course, maybe I missed something saying that something being a guardian beast matters.

    • StayBlessed says:

      Yea, I don’t think the fox is her Guardian Beast either. Even if she is, I’m not sure what that has to do with anything. The Harpie is his guardian beast, and it seems like something might happen there. Personally, I hope he steals her. Who cares about the mut? lol.

    • Erudite_Birdy says:

      Try improving the way you swish your wand. That might work for you. Not sure about becoming a wizard though.

  5. pundragon says:

    Thanks for the chapter!

    => “a golden pillar dozen of metres high”

    Does this mean “a dozen metres” or “dozen_s_ of metres”? When the old fox reached the innate level, his light pillar was 20m high and it was said that this meant a potential for reaching innate level 5. So the exact height of the light pillar is an important detail in order to estimate how strong she will be able to become…

  6. Pablo AS says:

    Ha…. he will now get a fox girl to his harem now… i wonder how many tails will she have… or maybe that fox girl will become hau tai lang bride? that masoquist dog =P

  7. Eugene says:

    @Λαστ As somebody in exactly your same situation, but 3 years nearer my expiration date, I can totally relate. I hated this chapter =(=(

    • Hibari Kyoya says:

      Λαστ & Eugene, I feel you guys. wish we could hang out and play some videogames while complaining about stuff

      After reading several similar comments…

      You guys really need to learn from what you are translating/reading and get out more.
      These days it’s not that hard to get laid.
      Practise some witty lines, dress decent, try some university hot spots, then APPLY that learning.

      See translating can really bring unexpected benefits.
      Of course, we would all miss your translations/comments, but be very happy for you.

      Here’s an article mostly for white guys.

  8. kinsake says:

    God damn it author! Why are you wasting so much word and space explaining useless things like “oh other girl don’t like marriage” or the princess getting complain from other princess :T

  9. phantom346 says:

    This chapter was so cringey! These descriptions are too much!
    “His high-spirited, burning hot and big lance proudly raised up high. As the knight’s charging signal echoed, it pointed towards that mysterious castle gate.

    • Burningman says:

      This i dont care, but the way he write it is so confusing for someone who already did it… it is not so mystifying… WTF fucking for the first time and she already cu*****ing with kisses? omg dude i wanted that power i need at least fifiteen min to make a woman do it with a lot more than just kisses and he did it in less than a min with a virgin above all, he should get the guru title if he does not have yet, he is a monster not even Chen Chang Shang from way of choices with his physics with can made woman love even his farts because of what he eat when he was a child can be this good.

    • Erudite_Birdy says:

      The knight part was almost word for word what was written the last time this happened.
      The rest seems poetic to me.
      This author likes to use poetry in his story.

  10. ambi says:

    Thanks for the chapter Λαστ and Shiroyukineko! I feel for you Λαστ. Translating something like this must not have been fun haha.

  11. spoilerproof says:

    thanks for the chapter~
    “Riajuus should die!” yeah…I never had one.
    Also…whose mom was it that occasionally reads this? xD

  12. harishendratno says:

    Oops.. Blurgh! I just cough up blood! This chapter is just too sugary for me lol. Applause for the author and thr translator for the great chap. .
    And i mean, having sex is like the best thing in life, bro. When you’re down, when you’re sad, sharing your feeling trough sex is such a good remedy. I suggest you to hurry and find your soulmate.
    Ps. My only partner is my wife, without love sex will be just for lust, and with love sex will be for life

  13. Forgotten_Fate says:

    Ty for the chapter Shiro and Λαστ, and 2 quick things. 1) like somebody else mentioned, can we get some clarification on her light pillar? (is it a dozen meter’s, or dozens of meters? it’s rather important since it marks their potential). and 2) regarding her pet and Yue Yang “stealing” Hui’s girlfriend, they usually just meant stealing her as a lover (since his dog obviously has a crush on the fox), they didn’t actually mean stealing her into his grimoire as one of his summons, or at least that’s how I always interpreted it lol.

  14. axcel101 says:

    reading so much about virginity hear just makes me wonder these current generation culture where people loose there virginity before crossing teen-hood and the journey they take through all those men before marrying some guy…just to be divorced again….is love really like this novels present in our current world???

    and that portraying of the mature scene was superb and thanks for showing some mature scene on the novels ( since some novels (ja*ane*e) wouldn’t just let the mc grow some pairs )

    and again thanks for the hard-work!!

  15. lscp21 says:

    well,well…..,this time of write where they describe the intercourse but not talk about the private parts, make me remember an certain anime called R15 where the protagonist was a writer that make erotic stories for +15 people so he did not described the private parts.

  16. Senjiro says:

    That was funny….
    The foreplay was good, and the act itself like a joke….
    For a moment i saw a knight party going against a Castle door, ….. after i remember this is a Portrait of sex…. and i died…..

  17. Calypso says:

    After 329 chapters I haven’t posted a comment but this chapter compelled me to because wow. This was romantic af. Like, I had to pause from time to time to make sure I was still reading LLS, cause if someone told me this chapter was from like an adult romance novel I would have believed it.

  18. Waites4n1 says:

    Aaot i couldnt agree more! “Raijus just die”. I mean seriously im 21 and no girlfriend in my life not for lack of effort, it just didnt connect. Reading this chapter was emotionaly and sexualy satisfying but some of the expressions and symbolism was so good it made me question if either a girl wrote this LN or if the male budda of sex wrote it. Eitherway i should worship them and learn from our MC LUL. Hace fun everyone. Binge 50% complete.

  19. Magnus Chase says:

    Shiro’s afterthought about the three tailed fox being Luo Hua City Mistress’ guardian beast, IIRC the Aurora’s light is her guardian beast and the three tailed fox was an uncontracted beast similar to yue yang’s wolf because if the fox was her guardian beast then that beast tamer guy from demonic sky palace wouldn’t have been able to try contracting it
    Sorry about being longwinded (also this took a long time to type on the PS4 with no keyboard lol)

  20. Erudite_Birdy says:

    Λαστ afterthought: “Being a 21yr old virgin without a girlfriend in my entire life, I regret translating this chapter and never gonna translate sex chapters again, 😳

    🤦🏼‍♀️ I'm reposting some of this as a main comment as there were so many people that agreed with Last (Λαστ > It's Greek).

    You guys really need to learn from what you are translating/reading and get out more.
    These days it’s not that hard to get laid/get a girlfriend.
    Practise some witty lines, dress decent, try some university hot spots, then APPLY what you have learned in this chapter.

    See translating/reading can really bring unexpected benefits.
    I’m sure we all wish you will ‘have a good life’ (性福).

    Of course, we would all miss your translations/comments, but be very happy for you.
