HN1F Chapter 14: 2 Rings

Okay guys, it’s time for me to come clean. The reason I made this website is so that after I gain a following, I can post my university homework and assignments here for you guys to help me. That way I get more time to translate and you guys get more chapters. It’s a win-win situation. The first assignment I need you guys to help me with is, I need you guys to help me write an essay about how to lie better.


 

Only until Xiao Yan’s figure gradually went away did Lin Feng return to his senses, hurriedly following over.

Xiao Yan actually has two rings, this is a situation that Lin Feng did not anticipate before. Lin Feng felt uneasy in his heart: “Could it be that Xiao Yan actually carries around two old grandpas with him?”

Fuck, coach, I want to make a report, this is entirely against the rules!

Maybe only one ring has an old grandpa and the other one is just a normal ring?

Lin Feng thought about it, this possibility is not impossible. Or even the two rings are both normal and there isn’t an old grandpa in either?

Or maybe one has an old grandpa living in it and the other is hiding some kind of godly item or something like that.

A multitude of questions hovered in Lin Feng’s mind making him puzzled. While thinking he had already followed behind Xiao Yan and arrived at the side of a small lake in the norther part of the city.

Lin Feng observed the surrounding scenery, there are very few people. Looks like this is that Xiao Yan’s private area, when he’s troubled he will come here to be by himself.

Remembering this place Lin Feng secretly nodded his head. After the marriage annulment Xiao Yan will most likely hide here by himself to lick his wounds, and then it’s the debut of the old grandpa.

By the lake the black-clothed teen had his hands behind his head, his head resting on his hands and just lying down like that on the grass, a grass stalk dangling in his mouth and swaying.

Lin Feng stood far away looking at Xiao Yan, his expression uncertain.

Right now he started to seriously think about how to first take Xiao Yan as his disciple before Murong Yanran breaks off the engagement. Or else when the marriage annulment matter occurs, if he activates two old grandpas at once then the pressure would be too great.

Lin Feng was in the middle of thinking when he saw a couple of teenagers walk over towards Xiao Yan, from the looks of it they don’t have good intention.

Secretly sighing Lin Feng shook his head with an expression of pity.

Don’t get him wrong, he’s not pitying Xiao Yan being bullied after falling from the sky, but instead sighing about those couple of people acting recklessly.

Yes, it’s true that Xiao Yan is having bad luck right now and looks easy to bully, but it needs to be known that one must pay a price when bullying this kind of main character.

After the marriage annulment Xiao Yan will be instantly re-energized. At that time he’ll be able to blow away hundreds of these little characters with a sneeze.

But not needing to wait for Xiao Yan to be re-energized, these people are unable to take advantage of him even right now.

For Lin Feng this is entirely an opportunity delivered straight to him.

Lowering his head checking his taoist robe and adjusting the taoist crown on his head, after confirming that his image was without flaw Lin Feng let out a dry cough and prepared to make his appearance.

“If you guys want to spar then Xiao Yan ge-ge doesn’t need fight, Zhen Er play around with you guys.” (TL: Zhen Er is the name of the girl that is talking. She refers to herself in third-person in this case. Also ge-ge means brother, the meaning here is like “oppa”.)

Hearing this Lin Feng almost stepped on his taoist robe and fell over. He hastily stopped his footsteps and looked over, seeing a young girl wearing a purple dress beautifully standing in front of Xiao Yan, quietly staring at those people that were provoking Xiao Yan.

The girl’s cold, indifferent aura was like a newly blossoming lotus. Such a young age but she already had the shape of a refined aura. It’s hard to imagine how beautiful this girl will be when she grows up in the future.

Lin Feng who was watching far away also secretly praised her. This girl is already a stunning beauty at such a young age and is slightly superior to Murong Yanran, almost equal to that peach tree demon Long Ye. When this Zhen Er grows up a bit more she’ll probably be able to rival Long Ye.

Only she really came at the wrong time.

Before Lin Feng had the time to feel regret he suddenly heard the system notification sound rise up: “Discovered target, suitable to become host’s disciple.”

“Hm? Could it be that my luck has taken a turn for the better?” Lin Feng was dazed for a moment and was then overjoyed. His gaze once again looked towards the purple-clothed girl like looking at a golden hen that can lay golden eggs.

“Talent system has finished organizing, target number 3’s data is as so.”

“Bone Root → 9; Comprehension → 8; Will → 7; Luck → 6.”

“Conclusion: Target’s talent in extremely high, recommended to take in as a disciple and carefully guide her, she will definitely become a pillar of the sect.”

“Special Note: The target’s current level is a stage higher than host’s.”

Lin Feng was listening cheerfully to the system notification sounds but when he heard the last sentence he became speechless.

A stage higher than me, isn’t that a Foundation Establishment stage cultivator?

Lin Feng swallowed his saliva, closely observing the purple-clothed girl. He saw that the mana in her body was abundant and formed a loop, as if it were inexhaustible, this is exactly the symbol of Qi Disciple level 12 great perfection.

Qi Disciple level 12 great perfection, the 12 nerve points are all unlocked and connected as one. The mana stored in the nerve points is no longer isolated as pools of dead water like before but has instead turned into a surging river, constantly circulating in the truth cultivator’s body.

Generally speaking Qi Disciple level 12 cultivators are far stronger than Qi Disciple level 11 cultivators.

But Foundation Establishment stage is an entirely different concept. If Qi Disciple level 12 is a river, then Foundation Establishment stage is an ocean. The two cannot be compared.

Even though no matter how Lin Feng looked the purple-clothed girl was still a level of peak Qi Disciple, but since the system said she is Foundation Establishment stage Lin Feng still decided to believe it. Who knows if this little chick has some sort of means to hide her level.

Knowing that this girl has Foundation Establishment stage strength Lin Feng immediately got rid of his thought of trying to take her as his disciple in the recent future.

There’s no other reason, this girl definitely has a big background.

Reaching Foundation Establishment stage at 13, 14 years of age, this kind of cultivating speed is even scarier than Xiao Yan’s. The two people’s bone root and comprehension aren’t that different, that means this purple-clothed girl has obtained much better cultivating resources than Xiao Yan since she was little.

Before figuring out her background Lin Feng will not act rashly. Of course, she can be a long term target.

The focal point in the short term is still Xiao Yan this main character.

With the purple-clothed girl standing out the couple of teens attempting to provoke Xiao Yan could naturally only retreat. The group of people left the lake, cursing while walking.

“Really don’t understand why Miss Zhen Er protects that trash.”

“Exactly, it’s practically inconceivable.”

Lin Feng secretly laughed after listening. This Miss Zhen Er is 9 out of 10 the queen prepared for Xiao Yan this king. (TL: A lot of times when you see me translate the word into main character, the word is 真命天子, this term usually refers to the emperor or a female’s destined one. Sometimes I also translate it as one chosen by the heavens when the author uses it and the word for main character in the same sentence.)

A deep background and she is able to bring help to Xiao Yan.

Her own talent is high and her cultivating speed can also keep up with Xiao Yan’s advancing footsteps so she won’t be sidelined.

Her personality is also good, gentle and strong, soft on the outside and tough on the inside, moreover she loves Xiao Yan to her very core…

Tut tut, this is practically the perfect main woman template.

While randomly think Lin Feng followed those teenagers, walking to a place that Xiao Yan and Zhen Er cannot see. Lin Feng asked smilingly: “That is the Xiao family prodigy that everybody in the city knows? How come he only knows how to hide under the skirts of women?”

Those teenagers were all stunned for a moment and then had the feeling of meeting a BFF, feeling that Lin Feng’s sentence virtually said what was in their hearts.

One person sighed saying: “You don’t understand, that’s Miss Zhen Er keeping old friendships in mind. She and Xiao Yan grew up together so after Xiao Yan turned into trash she still protected him.”

One of the teens beside him snorted coldly: “It’s just that that trash is too thick-skinned, taking advantage of Miss Zhen Er. If I was him I’d have crawled into a hole long ago.”

After laughing and going along with them for a couple lines he seemingly asked by chance: “Why is that Xiao Yan wearing a string around his neck with two rings on it? This is pretty interesting, it’s my first time seeing that.”

One of the teens curled his lips: “One is left to him by his father, one is left to him by his mother. His father and mother are both dead right now, we all say that those two rings are cursed. It’s just Xiao Yan that still treats them like treasure and carries them around with him afraid to lose them.”

After hearing this everything in front of Lin Feng went black.

Fuck, relics of his parents, there’s no mistake this time. Double the heritage, double the opportunity, double the old grandpas…

Lin Feng turned around and left.

Of course he’s not giving up on Xiao Yan, instead he needs to make more adequate preparations, he will not stop if he doesn’t succeed.

So what if it’s two old grandpas? The disciple is still mine!

      Oh, yeah this is a bit confusing if you haven’t read some CN xuanhuan/xianxia novels before. Basically, in a lot of such novels, the MC gets this artifact that usually has some sort of spirit trapped inside who guides the MC throughout the novel. Kinda like your old gramps. Our MC, who comes from Earth and is knowledgeable of such novels, applies his knowledge in this world in a parody fashion.

    One way to lie better, or rather, have your lie believed in, would be to not contradict yourself or tying up loose ends. In order words, you can’t tell someone that you love cats on Monday but on Tuesday say you hate cats. Also, if you don’t tie up the loose ends, the person you’re lying too might go investigate themselves, thus find out you’re lying. However, I feel like it just depends on the situation (lying to the teacher, lying to your parents, scammers, etc.).

      yes, sometimes a lie doesn’t need to be foolproof in the long term, it just needs to be indisputable in the short term in some situations where it will take some time to investigate, giving yourself time or opportunity to do what needs to be done.

    A lie is an intentional untruth. To lie better, you yourself have to believe the lie. In short, deceive yourself to successfully deceive others. The way to deliver your lie is also up for a long deliberation. Your tone, voice, expression, hand gestures! Each has to be considered in telling your lie. But the most important thing is, the lie itself. They say, mix some truth to make it more believable. I say, it wasn’t the point. You just have to support your lie with facts which can be easily confirmed. The rest is just using “misguided truths” in the most creative way.

    I hope this helps. We are asked before to research about it. (:

    the act of lying aims to bring a person or group to believe in a story told by one who can mind so split the lie strategies into three types 1 that it focuses on the lie counter 2 one that focuses on the lie story and 3 one that focuses the group should believe the lie

    the first group is techniques that make the person believe his lie making it more noticeable
    the second group is techniques that alter the lie the more believable history making
    the third group is techniques that alter the perception of the group receiving the lie

    in the first group we have a technique where one vividly imagines occur lie and suppress the memory of the truth that can be used hypnosis and visualization techniques
    in the second group we have the technique of story counter where it adds more specific detail the lie to seem more real and deceive the group receives, also changes the story to be more emotional so fleeing the criticality of the rational part of the brain uses If voice tone control techniques for this purpose
    in the third group we have raport technique which establishes a connection to the group receiving the lie through things in common with how tastes, hobbies, etc. in order also as in the case of the storyteller’s art to escape part of criticality rational brain, it is also used techniques of body language and mirroring for this purpose
    the three groups are purely didactic to better understand the techniques, including just created this hshshshshshshs look on pnl, hypnosis, social engineering and neuroscience.

      I would assume you mean face-to-face and/or in a practical sense. As such you would do well to investigate your own ticks for differences in tell truth from lie ( include relationship variables). And as has been said most of the time a lie coated with truth is easier to swallow. I know keeping it short i.e. not making more/new variables to the story/lie.
