“The soul rises to the nine heavens, the spirit falls to the nine abysses. The living suffers in grief, the dead settle in peace.”
A pampered young master of a famous martial family ( He himself isn’t hardworking in his martial arts because of that) escapes, by a stroke of luck and by the wisdom of his elders, to the total extermination of his family by a scion of a legendary family of assassins and his lackeyes. However, he is caught, reduced to slavery, and sold to the very stronghold of his hated enemies.
Convinced that it is “Heaven’s will” that brought him here, he harbors one desire: To have his vengeance and kill all that belong to the clan of his mortal enemies. He struggles to survive on a daily basis, to hide his identity, to rise through the hierarchy of the servants, to get closer to the various young masters and mistresses while concealing his hatred as much as he can.
It is a complex task, fraught with danger, when the faintest mistake can spell the doom of any servant, including the MC, especially when it infuriates those who have some sort of power. It is even more complex due to the past of MC, who was a young master and has many difficulties to behave like a servant.
