Demon King/The Parting of the Orchid and Cang partingChapter 9.2
Translator's Ramblings: Seriously thought I was going to delay the release ;__; Thank goodness I pulled through the process ~ Enjoy the chapter part everyone!
At this time Little Orchid thought of feeling the body itself, and then was suddenly relieved with one breath, "Scared me." No longer feeling guilty, Little Orchid suddenly grew angry, "Just now why did you want to cut the brother guard?!"
“You have the nerve to ask so confidently?” This sentence of Dong Fang Qing Cang caused Little Orchid to no longer speak. He sighed, after that felt strangely that in face of such a thing, he has began to slowly get used to it. At least psychologically he was able to be clear-headed quickly. He sorted out his emotions and said in a high voice, “Prepare the bath for ben zuo.”
Soon after someone has gently knocked the door, “Zun shang, the water's ready, Zhao Chen** hall.” **to cleanse/stripped oneself of dirt
Dong Fang Qing Cang adjusted the shirt, put on the cloak, and went out the door.
Along the way the servant's eyes fell to the ground, motionless, and does not dare to glance. But after Dong Fang Qing Cang has passed two corners, whispering voices came. The words "zun shang" and "man" were heard frequently.
Yes, even though nothing happened to the body, but…
Little Orchid felt guilty. Ancient mo zun's reputation has been completely destroyed in her hands.
But Dong Fang Qing Cang did not say anything, had no expression as if nothing was heard. Thinking about the time in underworld when the little ghosts were discussing, he was like that as well. Dong Fang Qing Cang paid no care/attention to the rumors about him, extremely disregarding, as if the people were talking about a different person unrelated to him.
Little Orchid cannot help but be curious, “They … say those words, are you not mad?
“Only the weak discussed behind someone's back.” Dong Fang Qing Cang said, “Words of ants and mole crickets are not worthy to be mindful of." T/N: DFQC is so savage sometimes.
Little Orchid was surprised for a moment. Whether it was in the legends or for these past few days, in Little Orchid's mind she has always felt that Dong Fang Qing Cang was easily irritated—as long as he was unhappy he would kill people, rude and impatient, unreasonably brutal. But after hearing such sentence, Little Orchid perhaps thought this was not so. Maybe he has a special perception on life.
“My master used to say, gossips are deadly…”
Not waiting for Little Orchid to finish, Dong Fang Qing Cang smiled, "Mountain of daggers and seas of flames, layers of hell cannot harm ben zuo, gossip and whatever are nothing. Gossips are deadly… blah, merely because of being weak."
Little Orchid froze for a while. She suddenly understood that the big devil has no special perception on life, he was just arrogant.
Between the talk, Dong Fang Qing Cang has reached Zhao Chen hall. When the door was pushed open, in the bath room, water vapor mixed hazily.
Dong Fang Qing Cang conveniently took off the robe and threw it on the ground. He reached to the unbutton the sides of the clothes. When the inner shirt was taken off, his left hand suddenly clung to the chest and exclaimed, "What are you doing?!"
Dong Fang Qing Cang looked at the large bath in front, “Do you not see it?"
Little Orchid was horrified, “Why take a bath?! Didn't you say yesterday that nothing has happened?”
Dong Fang Qing Cang furrowed his brows, "Body smell like alcohol, should not bathe then?"
“Ah ah ah … don't talk anymore, I don't want to take a bath with you!”
Dragging the left foot into the bath, Dong Fang Qing Cang discovered he has become accustomed to when his left foot would become disabled. Sitting in the bath (the lake), his left body was stiff (did not work). The left hand has been clutching his left eye, embarrassed in quiet.
That's really rare. Dong Fang Qing Cang thought, the soul in his body has never been this quiet before.
He leaned against the stone wall and sat quietly for a while, enjoying the precious tranquility.
In fact, Dong Fang Qing Cang “enjoying the peace” is already a rare thing; during ancient times he was an all-powerful demon (rebuking Heaven and Earth), and never asked someone to give him peace like some sort of charity, but now…
In the end it's really the passage of time, and people changed ah (people are not ancient; they don't stay the same).
But thinking about the ancient times…
Dong Fang Qing Cang lifted the right hand and poured a little water out of the bath.
Water droplets condensed into an image on the shore, slowly growing taller, and finally turned into three silhouettes that stood quietly.
“Find the Shuo Feng** sword." ** North Wind
Three silhouette gently nodded, and disappeared from Zhao Chen hall like the wind.
At this time Little Orchid let go of the hand covering the eye, turned her eyes to look around and asked, "Look for what sword?" "Big devil, who are you talking to?"
“With the guards I've created." Dong Fang Qing Cang answered casually, and then was silent for a moment. He suddenly laughed, "Little Orchid, do you not want a body? Let ben zuo help create one out of water for you."
Little Orchid heard this and promptly shook her head, “I've heard master's stories of you. I know you have a secret technique/magic that allows you to build/create something out of thin air. Yet, master said you can't compared to the Heaven world and so, the things you've created will have a human body but is not a true human. Within a month or two it will disappear. I'm not going to be fooled."
Dong Fang Qing Cang frowned, “Ah, your master knows so much.”
“My master is an immortal that knows about the matters of earth and heaven. Know a lot, magic is high, and my master is most powerful." Her words were like thousands points of pride.
“Oh?” Dong Fang Qing Cang whispered, “Compared to ben zuo?”
“You are far worse than my master.” Finished blurting out the words, Little Orchid felt the atmosphere was somewhat heavier and she turned her left eye, "No… I meant, magic has specialties, my master knows a lot, but cannot be said to win against you…"
“An immortal of a younger generation.” Dong Fang Qing Cang's tone was of disdain, “Know how much about the world? Afraid cannot compared even to one part of what ben zuo knows."
Little Orchid held the impulse to pout, she was afraid the big devil would cause trouble for master, and so weakly said, "Yes, big lord devil is the most powerful."

Alert … soul leave the body? Big devil as well? Does not know where devil's body went, ah!
But Little Orchid knows. Before finding the body, the devil will think up every possible way to kill her.
Next chapter, blocking the power of the soul … to tear forcefully …

Translator's note: This one I am unsure of because the pinyin and Han characters were along the line “to cause fame, news/wind, song, bladder or guts” so I am assuming this sentence is referring to Dong Fang Qing Cang recreating his once famed reputation of being the terrible and great ancient Demon King.
