Gentleman Free-Flowing Cloud


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

As the left protector of the Demon Sect, and being so “honored” to be seen as the successor by her crazy Demon Sect leader…… ah, to be honest, she’s someone who rather just lead an idle life, but… sigh, her luck has always not been good.

When she was ten, the Demon Sect leader bestowed upon her a handsome sect servant (they are called Sky Slaves (天奴)), in order to survive, she and her sky slave never parted from then on, cooperating perfectly, he even promised he would follow her for one life, one lifetime… what a one life, one lifetime!

Ah… it’s only a beautiful back, there’s nothing important about it, she shall be generous and not ask the person to take responsibility. Who knew that she’s generous but the other person is stubborn, insisting on having her as an adopted sister! Adopted sister? She once heard that the Cloud Family has a bad practice in the “Jiang Hu” (literally rivers and lakes, but indicating the pugilist world).

— Ah! She has miscalculated! Miscalculated! Once she met the charismatic but poisonous heavenly man, can she make a full retreat?

I've finished reading this novel a long time ago.
While its narrative was not good enough to compel me to re-read it again, I remembered that its premise was interesting. The characters, too. A girl who was a successor to an evil sect leader met a widely acclaimed nice gentleman of Jianghu. After twists and turns, as the two walked in distinctly different path, will they be able to be together? The man was sly (in a good way), and the girl is no pushover either. And there are plenty... more>> humors to make you laugh.

If the novel's done well, it could probably be something like Demoness Is Not Evil which similarly a short wuxia story with strong female lead. However, Gentleman Free-Flowing Cloud's plotting and narrative left much to be desired. The result was a somewhat mediocre novel. If I have to rate it... it's probably around 3.... <<less

Dropped... wasn’t to my taste...

The plot is interesting, but the writing made it boring.

For some of the first story, I thought that the story is kinda heavy. Not good if the purpose to read is for entertain.

But actually this is good!

Not as heavy as I thought. The plot is kinda interesting, maybe because I've never put any expectation of this story. And the MC and ML not stupid, because I hate stupid character.

... more>> I is just 10 chapters, completed, and you can read it in one go.

I recommend you to read this of you like smart character although sometime you will get annoyed because of her

*I know that my review is not good, but I am trying to express my thought about this story. Hope it helpful.

Btw don't afraid of this story! <<less

I actually liked and appreciated the characterization of our main lead. The character growth from "enduring to not enduring" made my heart cry a bit of tears. Of course, I would have liked it better if the author had made the story a bit longer towards the end. ^^ A good story.

I feel like this one is all over the place. Characterization is also inconsistent. And I simply didn’t like any characters in this book.

Overall, it’s an ok short read. Anyone looking for romance in wuxia setting with a bit slice of life element here and there might wanna take a look.

It’s not a great story but it is solid and makes an enjoyable read. The charm of the story lies in the female lead, while its weaknesses are her leading men and her interactions with them.

... more>>

The MC, Wang Yun, is a young girl who grew up in a very hostile and competitive environment (the Bai Ming sect) and consequently doesn’t have anyone she trusts or any way to express herself, only avoiding conflict and enduring her situation. Consequently, she has little trust in those around her, including Gong Sun Yun whom she met once in the prologue 6 years prior and He Ziu, the slave who she grew up with.
Similarly, He Ziu appears subservient to her on the surface but maintains his own will and determination, although his character wasn’t particularly developed. In comparison, Gong Sun Yun normally appears cold to outsiders but is dedicated and warm towards those he trusts and regards as family.


WY is the left protector of her sect and one of the two possible candidates for leadership, with the current master grooming her for succession through a series of harsh tests. In the story, she escapes with HZ to attend his father’s funeral and they are escorted back by GSY who harbours feelings for her from their encounter in the prologue.
During this journey, her master planted mines and the MC falls off a cliff while the male leads were rescuing their family members. Having expected to eventually be abandoned by them and end up alone, she is not surprised but is disappointed as she has never had anyone to truly rely on. She then decides to turn her life around and rely on others so they’d also value her.
GSY finds her and takes her back to his sect, nursing her back to health, while HZ returns to the sect to wait for her return. During this period she starts developing feelings for GSY, until her master schemes to expose her from her hiding place and to bring her back to the sect.

While WY is a strong and likeable character whose personality is justified given her situation, I found her relationships in this story somewhat lacking. Her interaction with HZ didn’t seem to have an element of romance, nor did they develop strong familial ties. Instead they seemed mainly to exist alongside each other. While her relationship with GSY progressed rather fast, given her character and could’ve been more fleshed out more. The story had a strong start, however the author seemed to rush through the middle and end, skimming over relationships and character development. It could’ve easily gone for another 5 chapters to develop HZ and her master as characters, and her relationship with GSY. <<less

Great story! It was short but kept me engaged and it made me tear up a couple of times. It was a little confusing in some parts but nothing too difficult to figure out. A happy ending. Definitely worth reading again in the future.

I put off reading this story since I felt that with 10 chapters the story is a bit short. I was WRONG! This was a very good read. I enjoyed it a lot and I am sorry I didn't read it sooner.

This is a fun story, light and easy to digest. Although it only have 10 chapters it does not feel hurried at all. True, it could be longer but having it short works well just the same.",)

4.5 stars rounded down to 4.

Contrary to other reviewers, I actually really liked this novel, and I think it is quite memorable. The one thing I agree with though, is that the novel would have benefited from more chapters and fleshed out plot.

The MC is really unique, as she isn't bloodthirsty or revenge-seeking like other heroines in Wuxia novels. Her motto is "endure, endure, endure!" I really love her character, while also pitying the way she had to live her life, which is always being on guard and never trusting... more>> anyone besides herself. What she lacks in martial arts/power, she makes for it with wits and cunning. The wordplay between her and the ML were hilarious and fun to read about.

The ML isn't as unique as the MC, but his character was well-portrayed enough that I found myself liking him and shipping him with the MC. His personality works very well with the MC's, and I could see why she decided to trust him. What I find bothersome is how the novel is titled after him, even though I feel that the novel is more about the MC's character development, as she originally distrusts everyone and then learns to accept her "family."

There is another ML, though I feel that he drew the short-end of the stick due to the novel's short length. Don't worry though, this story does not have a love triangle.

What I really like about this novel is how everything that happens has a deeper meaning. Words really aren't wasted, hence why this novel manages to be so interesting despite its length. Some readers might feel like the novel is confusing or vague due to the way the author writes, but as long as one sticks with the novel, things will start to make sense.

I would recommend this novel to anyone who wants a short story that still manages to portray good character development and fun bantering between the MC and ML. <<less

The novel was average and didn't leave much impact on me apart from how awesome it could've been if it was expanded. However, it's worth a shot if you're looking for something to kill time and get the gears going off in your head.

The MC is a great character who literally just "endures" everything. I liked the concept of her character and how the author develops her given the shortness of the novel. The side characters also have their positives but were a bit bland (apart from the second male... more>> lead). Romance is there but it doesn't quite come in until the later part of the story which is alright considering the length of the novel in itself.

My only issue is that some chapters I had to read perhaps twice or thrice before I understood what exactly was going on and what every action meant. The narrative was good and had lots of potential but fell short due to the shortness of the novel.

Overall: A rating of 3/5

Would I recommend it: Yes, if you're looking for something to pass the time. <<less

This was one of the earlier novels I read. It is light heart, interesting, and entertaining in each chapter. I loved the interactions between the FL and ML. I definitely recommend if you have free time to kill, doesn't want to bother with a tragedy, and want some laughs.

This was a nice though short read. Because of the length, there wasn't much character development and many of the characters aren't fleshed out. This is a pity since both the male lead and the second male lead could have been truly memorable characters. Fortunately the female lead is a strongly sketched character who was a delight to get to know. I instantly fell in love with this damaged yet determined young woman with her wit and self-deprecating humor. She had a delightfully wry and cynical world view that was... more>> really fun to read. The male lead is the perfect complement to her and I was really sad that we couldn't get to know him more. I also felt that the story was really rushed towards the end with too many plot developments for what is essentially a novella/short story. It would have been better if the author had taken the time to fully flesh it out. I would love to see a drama version! <<less

Story seemed pretty interesting, but sometimes it felt hurried or skipped around or somewhat vague which made it feel like it could have used a bit more fleshing out.

Very short story; there were many aspects that I want to know more about i.e. it can easily be lengthened which may make the plot more interesting...

Not really a waste of time to read, but not likeable or memorable. Maybe take it up to pass the time while waiting for your favourites to be translated?
