Snippet Lotus Step Chapter 3 -

Let's have a  laugh!

Quote

 

However,  a rumour began to spread in the city after that incident. It spoke of a fairy-like young lady handing out umbrellas at the ferry crossing as a way of blessing passersby during that spell of rain. 

 

The old Taoist priest who ran a stall at the entrance of the Cheng Huang Temple candidly named this lady, The Umbrella Goddess.

 

Within a few days of receiving The Umbrella Goddess’ grace, the Esquire of Li Zhi Hu Tong donated a temple and modeled a golden statue in her stead. His commendable act became the talk of the town.

 

 

Guess who this Umbrella Goddess might be. There were only 2 people giving out umbrellas at the ferry crossing pier.

Yep she is the legendary Umbrella Goddess! HAHAHAHAHA! When you read Chapter Three, yall will have a seriously good laugh as she stayed clueless.

 

Back to Chaos Chapter six still on track for release late today. But as soon as I am done with six I will move on to finish seven and eight. Then I will be left with the short chapter 9. Hoping to get this done faster so I can hop back on Lotus Step hehe.

 

Also don't be surprised that when you check back on my chapters, some might have had some edits done to it as I frequently run through the translations to make sure they are on point.

Chapter 6 is being prepped for upload. This one has a long list of notes so it had taken longer than expected. But it contains a proper explanation for the Parijata Tree (sanskrit for the Zhou Du Tree) I managed to find a professionally translated version of the scripture online from which the tree was quoted from. 

 

And that part where she talked about how Di Jun didn't show up at the wedding, I let some tears fall as I was translating. It was a touching scene. It was unspoken, but I could really feel her pain.

UPDATE TO ELOD BLOG:

Back to Chaos in a Dream: Chapter Six

Three Lives Three Worlds Pillow Book Outtake

枕上书之梦回洪荒远古时

 

https://elodsoompie.wixsite.com/home/post/back-to-chaos-in-a-dream-chapter-six

 

Chapter Six is up!

 

I have added more information on the Zhou Du Tree, which is the Indian Coral Tree (Pārijāta in sanskrit).

 

This is a relatively short chapter compared to the upcoming chapter 7.

 

I will be hard at work translating the greatly anticipated wedding!

It is a long chapter...

 

And of course the editors will also be busy reading and editing!

 

So in the meantime, here is Chapter 6 for everyone to stew on!

 

Hope our dear readers will appreciate the story and spread the love!

It feels awesome that you found the Zhou Du tree info, but at the same time, that part when Feng Jiu tells Dong Hua that he wasn't there in their wedding really stung. I guess, even to those who haven't read TPB, they'd feel FJ's lingering hurt how their special day was ruined.

 

There should be more reaction buttons allowed for comments...

Thanks so much again for this lovely, bittersweet chapter @Ninky @nitepolaris @SC2019 :heart:

 

 

Father God indicated that Dong Hua had forgotten to name his formation strategy so he had lost a very important point as a result of it.

 

Since then, Di Jun had never forgotten to name the things he owned. It was all thanks to Father God indeed.

 

Ahahaha! This anecdote explaining Dong Hua's habit of naming his things is really amusing, but to be honest, Fushen has more romantic streak when it comes to names. Qian Yuan for a frightening formation plan vs Dong Hua's Little Fox for Feng Jiu when she was an ordinary fox.

 

After Fu Ying retreated back to the Northern Realm, he extracted the essence nourishing the lands, and used it to create an enchanted restriction ward that enclosed the entire Northern realm inside its boundaries. He retreated his army into the ward, shutting themselves in. They stood their ground from within, never leaving it.

 

As the enchantment was constructed from the essence of the land, forcing an attack from the outside would destroy it, and the entirety of the Northern Lands would be wiped out.

 

Fu Ying is despicable for his willingness to sacrifice the Northern Realm, when he used it like a hostage to shield his group.

 

She suddenly became angry, “Neither was it your fault.” She had gotten angry despite saying it was not his fault, yet not knowing who she was angry with, “It was because you had to save someone. After you had rescued that person, you encountered a precarious matter that would have endangered the world, requiring you to handle it, so you missed our wedding ceremony. I waited a long time for you, but you did not return. My wedding robes were so beautifully made, and I especially wanted to wear them, but in the end, I still never got to wear them. This was not your fault, it was fate making a mockery of people.” She sighed in a matured manner when she finished speaking.

 

:heartbreak: :frown: The kind of heartbreak that can never really be forgotten, until beautiful memories replace the past lingering hurt.

 

Previously at the Heavenly Jade Sea, hadn’t he tolerated sharing a bed with her every night? Her sleeping postures had always involved cuddling into his arms, and when had he ever pushed her away? She was just a heartless little fox who would always forget after waking up.

 

I can hear a bit of grudge there, LOL, coz somebody lost his bed space,  hahaha!

i think Father God is a romantic because I believe he purposely let SW sit next to his son, knowing full well what might happen.

He is exactly the rot Di Jun spoke about with Zhe Yan. They needed to be exterminated like the vermin they are.

In the next chapter, we see more of what she really felt. The sore spot was still there and it still hurt. She only said what her heart truly wanted to say when she got drunk. Even Di Jun past was stunned when she shared that painful memory. He went “What!” Lol

Di Jun and his typical black chest (the Chinese describe him as this, it means his poisonous tongue). He just can’t stop doing it. It is a large part of him. Master Troll too.

I don't know if he's expecting her to remember how she slept and what she did to him while she's sleeping!

Finished reading

 

Taking advantage of her reverie, he reached his hands out, hugging her over, then he fiddled with lying her down,

 

shouldn’t it be laying instead of lying?

according to the dictionary it is in fact lying , not laying.

And I hope you like it. In about 3 chapters people who have requested for a pdf shall get it :D

 

Here's a grammarly quote about when to use which :

 

Quote

 

What’s the difference between lay and lie?

You lie down, but you lay something down. Lie does not require a direct object. Lay requires a direct object. The same rule applies to laying and lying (not lieing—beware of spelling). The past tense of lay is laid, but be careful with the past tense of lie—there are two options. We’ll dive into them later. 

e.g I spend rainy days lying on my couch.

 

Don’t leave dirty clothes lying around the house.
 
So lay laid laying
And Lie Lying present participle of lie is lying and not laying. 
Grammerly is an excellent resource that I use when translating or working on editing.

 

The last time i used laying it got edited to lying, then on further reading lying would be the correct one to use. It's confusing though on when to use the right one at times! Though I do know why laying might be used here.

 

Edit:

And actually you may be right, I am going to consult the other two ladies. In this context, Di Jun is trying to lay her down. Hmmm let me double check. But in his speech it will have to be lying coz she is lying down at that point.

 

Edit 2: 

Anyway it got fixed. We do miss stuff as we are only human so apologies. It's a lot to translate and then edit and editing is actually harder work as it requires us to be eagle eyed.

 

And I am using the UK/AU commonwealth English for all my translations so "colour" is spelt this way for example. and toward is "towards". Those are geographical quirks and are not mistakes :D

 

And yes ladies of all stripes, I am working on Chapter SEVEN of outtake. 

It's the wedding! But I am now at the opening scenes.

Hello, everyone! I'm back! I don't know what happened but I stopped receiving notifications from this thread months ago. I thought it was because no one posted here anymore. I'll try to find the last page I read before soompi stopped sending me the notifications. I hope I didn't miss anything important during my absence here.
