Yue Kingdom – Earth

The little hut in the bamboo forest was nestled in a waving sea of green. Lin Yu listened to the rustle of the leaves as the winds danced among  the green stalks.

She looked at the roof of the little hut with a frown. Her head hurt outrageously, and just before she woke, she had saw someone in her dreams. He stood proud and tall, haughty with a glint of laughter in his eyes. Huang Wu was always seemed so high and mighty and she couldn’t resist trying to take a bite out of him to bring him down a peg or twelve. But in her dreams, Huang Wu’s eyes were strange, they looked at her with a light that made her heart quicken. But that the same time, it was a look that made her want to cry and grab a hold of his hand.

Just when she had reached out to him, he took a step back and faded into the darkness.

She woke up.

In the dark night, the flicker of starlight were the only way that lead home.

She was was dressed in the silks made from the silkworms of the moon,  incomparable material that flowed and moved without the wind, adding gossamer lightness to her alabaster skin. Yu Zhu paused in mid air as she looked down at the peaceful world. Her dark, long hair flowed behind her, a black waterfall cascading in rhythmic motion of the wind.

Yue Kingdom Mortal Realms

In the vast expanse of green grass that boiled and seethed, a tiny dot of brown moved faster and faster. The horse’s mouth foamed as it snorted, its flanks covered in thick droplets of sweat.

On the horse was a man in silver and white robes, the clung to his powerful frame in the howling winds. He and the horse thundered through the long weaves of green, leaving holes of black earth in their path. Black blood oozed the youth’s shoulder, the poison spreading like a savage army towards his heart.

First of all, hello to all the readers of this blog and story.  Thank you so much for the support, without you all, I would have never been able to carry on so long.  However, I’ve started to realize that the quality of my writing isn’t up to par and doesn’t communicate the scene and story to my satisfaction. Which in turn makes me unhappy with characters and their development. So, as most have probably noticed, my speed at which this novel is written is getting slower and slower. Because I love this story and want to uphold its integrity, I want to take my time and release it all once I’ve finished it, rather than update it haphazardly.

My goal is to have this done in a few months. Hopefully by autumn. By my estimation, there’s still about 30-40 chapters to go. I want to give the right endings that everyone deserves in the story and have time to go back and fix the released chapters.

Writing has been a great way to destress for me so I definitely will be finishing this story. Concurrently, I’ve started writing another story that’s set in the same universe, and will be releasing it with Yu Zhu at the later part of this year.

Thanks for understanding!

Bo Hai, Isle of the 8 Immortals

This chapter sees a lot of moving parts ready to converge and collide. Jin is still a mystery but he’s definitely revealing more and more in the next few chapters. I’ve always wondered if he and Zhu Zhan Ye would get along if I put them in the same room.

The Land Between Realms

There was no time in the barren white land, only hordes upon hordes of monsters for her to kill. Yu Zhu didn’t know how long she had been fighting, only that had she been her old self she would have collapsed long before now. It felt as if she’d been fight for years, her hands were becoming numb.
