This is going to be a special review!!! Master Series is a novel consisting of FOUR short stories featuring Shifu-disciples romances. Even though I’m not a fan of student-teacher relationships, I enjoyed reading these short stories because of how cute they were. Out of the four, I have only found two to be fully translated. One is Master Feels Stifled and the other is Master is Old. Both stories feature the female lead as an immortal who takes on disciples and her romances with them. Usually c-novels are long, but both of these stories are only about 7-8 chapters, so you can easily finish them in about an hour. So, if you want to read something to bypass time, definitely check these stories out!
BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Master feel stifled (师父心塞)
A female god accepts three disciples. The first one falls in love with her. The second one falls in love with a demon. The third one is rowdy and uncontrollable. Despite being a powerful goddess herself, she had bad luck with choosing disciples. But she was proud and always adhered to the rules. Never once did she follow her heart and pursued the romance she secretly wanted. And once it was too late to reveal her feelings, she could only push him away and wish him well.
I shoved him once and Qian Gu covered his chest, pain making his face pale, one knee falling to the ground.
“This is the spell of spirits. Qian Gu, remember this suffering. If you simply enter Kong Ling peak again, your body will feel pain even worse than now. Before the calamity I will make a boundary. I’m not worried about your Junior Brother or Sister being able to enter. They don’t have the ability to and they will also not want to rush inside. Only you, Qian Gu.”
I crouched down.
He raised his head to look at me, hard to be hidden pain visible in his eyes.
I rubbed his head.
”I know my own body, on the day of the big calamity, maybe I will…… Don’t come to look for me again. No matter what happens, don’t come to look for me again. After those three lashes of the Biting-spirit whip landed on your body, I already wasn’t your Master anymore.”
Master is old (师父年迈)
A female god of war lives in solitude. In the past, she once had a student that she had taken in as a child. She taught him martial arts and even fell in love with him in the process. However, once he became older, he stole her sword and left her trapped alone in the mountains. Heartbroken, the renowned war god distances herself away from the world and lives reclusively. Until one day, another young person comes knocking on her doorsteps and begs her to take him as a disciple….
My heart moved and those bright and cheerful images of a hundred years ago flashed in my mind, piercing my heart, causing it to feel sour and pain as well as something I had not felt for many years – immense anger.
Divine energy billowed out, suppressing the Fairy Maiden’s demonic energy, causing her to freeze. “Wha…”
I turned around, staring piercingly at the Fairy Maiden, “Knowing that you juniors don’t understand things, I have always been tolerant…” My divine sword had been stolen by Qinghan, vanishing along with him in the demonic abyss. Yet even without the sword and my body declining, it did not mean I was a useless person. “But, who permitted you to be so impudent on Misty Mountain?”
The Fairy Maiden narrowed her eyes, seemingly very dissatisfied at my words while Liu Yue raised his eyebrows, reaching out his hands in an attempt to block me. But before he could take a step, I had already condensed Misty Mountain’s divine energy into a formless sword and before the two had time to react, pressed the sword on the Fairy Maiden’s neck.
It was only when the sword faintly pierced her skin did she finally react, spinning her body to dodge. Without giving her time to rest, I moved the sword again, this time to take her heart.
Barely saving her life, the Fairy Maiden repeatedly took steps back. In the end, no longer able to avoid, she cast a spell in hide her body. Still sensing her aura, I knew that she was here, I stabbed the sword into the ground, coldly speaking, “When I was fighting with your demon race’s saintly ancestor the previous queen, who knew where you were. Just a measly junior, how dare you behave so presumptuously towards this old woman? Looking for death!”
