Shadow Guard Delivering a Mantou by Gui Yu



Translator: MiniOrchid

Editor: Morgan, Mary & kissed-by-circe

AKA: Paternity Guard, Master and Shadow Guard

Status: Ongoing



A woman from Fufeng Sect was jilted by her lover, out of grievance, she created a child-bearing potion. It was 100% effective, and a child was born.  

The ashen lady took out her potion and proudly presented it to the crowd. 

The audience stirred and commented: "Is that really true? Could such a thing be possible?"

Not knowing what the lady was thinking as her face dropped, she pointed to a corner and everyone's gaze followed.


Seventeen raised his head with a confused expression: "But I am male." 

The audience fell silent...

In short, this is a merry joyous story about a Lord of his Fortress and a Shadow Guard - who is pregnant with a mantou - as they cross river, sea, and mountain, through the Jianghu world, all the while waiting for their steam bun to be done... 

Translator's Note: This is my first translation project, so it's in no way perfect. I fell in love with this adorable story because it was light-hearted and original. The novel may not be a grand-scale like other popular BL works, but still memorable and touching nonetheless.
