novel by Priest

凉雨知秋, 青梧老死, 一宿苦寒欺薄袋, 几番世道践跑... 也不 过一声 '相见恨晚'

One only knew autumn when the cold rain came; parasol trees dying of old age; the suffering of the cold under a thin blanket; wasting your lifetimes away… all belated regrets in the end—regrets that we hadn’t met sooner.


As long as your affection for me is as fine for you, I will not let it be in vain.

A story about the former leader of a special organization served under royalty, now leaving his past life behind and unwittingly getting involved with the martial world.

Zhou Zhishu is the leader of the emperor's special organization, Tian Chuang. After three years of bloodshed, he leaves the organization and travels the Jianghu Mountains to lead a peaceful and leisurely life.

However, with virtuous intentions in mind, he engages in a war in jianghu, where he meets Wen Kexing, a valley master who likes "beautiful people". Wen Kexing follows Zhou Zhishu closely and the two eventually reunite during their journey through jianghu.
