A little bit on the plot that I found out after reading the first ten chapters: There’s time-traveling in here which I supposed will be removed. Our hero is pretty much still kid in the first few chapters. The novel started with our adult hero afflicted with an incurable disease where his muscles slowly die over time. He’s given a second chance at life and is transported back in time to the Eastern Jin Dynasty (from baidu) into the body of a baby – an illegitimate son of a noble (his mother, a princess, escaped the palace when a coup happened and *died* after giving birth). His name is now Fan Xian and he spends his baby days observing the environment and with-holding adult jokes from the maids (yunno cause he’s physically a baby, but mentally a man!) Lol. I’m at the part where he’s four years old and successfully knocks out a visitor at night, who’s sent by his father, The Count. With a bleeding man on his floor, our hero carries his tiny body to seek help from a blind man (affectionately called Uncle Five Bamboo), the same person who carried and protected his baby self to this manor four years ago. Uncle Five recognizes the visitor as Mr. Fei, Assistant Director of the Empire Bureau of Investigation Third Division and one of the top three poison masters. When Mr. Fei comes to, he turns out to be a private tutor hired by Fan Xian’s dad to teach the boy ways of the world. Errr…. the arts of using poison, identifying them, and neutralizing them. He explains that the Count’s concubine recently had a son and so she’s afraid of sharing the Count’s estate with another woman’s son so Fan Xian needs to learn ways to protect himself. Thus, he spends time learning with Mr. Fei; about human anatomy, digging graves for hands-on experience, poisons. Even the elderly teacher is surprised that a five-year old kid can be so brave, mature, and somewhat cruel when it comes to death, blood, and killing.

Later on in life, he will be involved in royal marriage, political battles, mother’s revenge, and ultimately achieves peace for the kingdom.

    Oh yai yai yai time traveling again…I finally agree this theme needs to be banned now.but it sounds like this story is really the kind that cannot work without time traveling, it sounds like a must in this case or else everything will fail.

    This novel is like the male version of every single time-travelling/revival web novels out there. So freaking funny.

    Hi, so after reading this post, I wanted to try and read the novel. Thank you for posting the link.
    Has anyone read the complete novel in Chinese?
    They have only translated a portion of it and it has a long way to go. I’ve read what’s available but NEED some SPOILERS on the romance area of the story.

    SPOILERS below.
    There are multipple women in this story who intrigue our hero. He marries one so far but has some questionable interactions with another and questionable physical responses to others.
    Does he fall in love with any other woman that is not his wife?
    And does he and up having physical relations with anyone not his wife after his marriage?
    The story is good and I want to continue to read and enjoy it but I just need to know whether or not to invest my romantic sensibilities into believing him to be one the heros who falls in love with one woman and is true to her always OR if he is a hero with faults who has multiple loves throughout his life.
    It helps better appreciate a story if I know in advance.

    Thanks!!!!
    Irene
