Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 023 Part 1

Chapter 23: Sacred Awakening, Scion of Light (III) PART 1.

Let’s play a game before the reading time starts.

Try to guess something regarding what is coming on this chapter;
DO NOT ANSWER THIS POLL AFTER READING PLEASE. It wouldn’t be fun otherwise. I trust you guys.

Part 1:

Due to the fact that in the Knight Temple, there were less than 10 people who truly knew the profound mysteries of the Scion of Light, Long Xing Yu wasn’t worried at all about his son’s inborn gifts being exposed.

“Hao Chen, your [Sacred Awakening] has just been completed. Did you realize that after taking into account your internal spiritual energy, you are already a Genuine Knight?”

“Oh? So easily?” Long Hao Chen was surprised, but he could feel in his body a kind of warm air current that reacted to his thoughts and movements.

“Easily?” Long Xing Yu’s face revealed a forced smile, thinking that this little fellow didn’t know hunger or famine. After a knight’s awakening, it was already praiseworthy if one gained from it, 20 spiritual energy levels.

“Your innate gifts are not bad, but this is merely what the [Sacred Awakening] brought you. Regarding your practice in the future, you will not only have to make efforts as great as before, but possibly even greater. Understood? Let’s head back and talk over this matter.”

“Father, I will make great efforts for sure.”

Upon seeing Long Xing Yu holding Long Hao Chen’s hands as they came back to the log cabin; Bai Yue’s face revealed a smile and she silently looked at this scene, standing close. She didn’t know much about swordplay, but she understood her husband well. She could also see clearly from Long Xing Yu face that he was somewhat shocked. By the fact that her formidable husband was unexpectedly shocked by her son’s innate gifts, it seemed that Chen Chen’s choice to walk on the road of chivalry was the correct one. However, if one day, they, father and son, really had to face that person… …

Heading back to the log cabin, Long Hao Chen donned the clothes he had brought before continuing to listen to Long Xing Yu’s instructions.

Long Xing Yu said with a heavy voice: “Now you ought to tell me what your choice is, do you want to become a Retribution Knight or a Guardian Knight?”

Long Hao Chen answered without delay, in a firm voice: “Father, I want to become a Guardian Knight.1

“A Guardian Knight?” Long Xing Yu was stupefied, “So you are unexpectedly willing to give up on the formidable attack power and combat effectiveness of the Retribution Knights?”

Long Hao Chen answered: “Father, it would be easier to pick up girls if I were to save their life like a prince, then they would feel so indebted towards me that their heart and body would without doubt belong to myself. It is much better than showing a bloody appearance on the battlefield, and frighten them instead. Thus, I want to become a Guardian Knight.2

Long Hao Chen rigidly answered: “Father, you told me that to be a match against the demon race, we needed the power of the humanity as a whole, that the power of a single person is, in the end, insignificant. I want to turn into a Guardian Knight to protect the people I want to protect even better and, at the same time, to assist the people fighting beside me in the battlefield even more.”

Long Xing Yu was clearly somewhat disappointed and he sighed: “But to finally battle the 72 Demon Gods, what we will need will be the greatest force humanity can bring.”

Long Hao Chen immediately asked: “Then is it impossible for Guardian Knights to battle the demon gods?”

As he listened to this question, Long Xing Yu’s eyes revealed a glow, “That’s it! With your innate internal spiritual energy of 97, your [Sacred Awakening] as the Scion of Light, your incredible mental capacity as a support, why can’t you learn some more things? Retribution and guardian are just classifications, maybe you will be able to create a miracle. Perhaps the correct choice is to train both at the same time, in order to bring out the most of your innate potential as the Scion of Light.”

Long Hao Chen seemed to have understood something and asked with a shocked voice: “Father, are you saying that I should study at the same time, the skills and abilities of a Retribution Knight?”

“That’s right. From now on, I will train you as a retribution knight and in two years, you will leave for Hao Chen Hall, where you will train as a guardian knight. This may reduce the cultivation speed of your spiritual energy, but as long as you are able to advance as both a Retribution and a Guardian Knight, in the future, you will become a formidable knight without precedence in history.

Time passed day by day, the training as a knight at Odin Mountain’s peak continued, and in a blink of an eye, a year and a half passed.

Dang — — a neat chime resounded and the youth’s body suddenly shone a golden color before condensing just like the brilliance of the rising sun, as a shining blade broke through space.

A bamboo sword was lightly waved, its edge shone of a golden color as the space before this bamboo sword with a little handle was shattered.

  1. and most of you lost the guessing game, you had to take into account his personality I guess :p, he’s too kind hearted for choosing retribution, and not greedy enough to choose both. Though I thought he would choose retribution, personally :x.
  2. Sorry, this was actually the answer I would have given, not his true answer, as you have probably guessed… … No worries, I probably won’t put this sentence like that in the middle of the TL XD… On the full version that is
  • Sorry about my little troll & my poll for fun that probably made the true answer surprising for you. I just wanted to have some Sunday fun.
    I will stop this kind of troll-ish jokes if you guys think it was too troll-ish from me though.

  • leehar

    Woohoo
    Got it right. Kinda, because he is training in both in the end? So I don’t think the majority are wrong.
    But I did think he’d choose to be guardian night himself, because he’s a momma’s bout. Not that its necessarily a bad thing, just that he did seem like the kind of guy who’d want to protect those close to him. Which is why your first troll response was so jarring

    • Since I decided it XDD. It would be so fun to have him become this kind of character. At least sometimes, let him be occasionally controlled by some evil pervert spirit or something like that. Oh I may have read too much ecchis.
      Mhh it is not exactly right that he chose both, because it wasn’t what he chose, but rather what his father kinda forced upon him.

  • Bravo

    I shall join the elite group of being right of what he chose ^o^.

  • Blue skies on a pleasant day

    I was expecting him to choose Guardian to protect his mother but I chose “other”. Now he’s becoming both. Author should have given him 100, make him a God of Light. Then fighting the demons with his lazer beams would be great. Also. UNICORN PEGASUS please. No white tiger, or any other creature ;~;

    • jacobpaige

      I’m thinking Dragon myself, but even if I’m wrong, I know it will be one of the highest tier mounts available, though it won’t necessarily be obviously so.

      • Colonel Rogers

        A pure white dragon would be legit.

  • Vivec

    Thanks for the chapter. I voted something else/both, because the MC almost always ends up being OP enough to do everything anyways. I approve of the troll paragraph, and signing up doesn’t really require any effort anyways. It shouldn’t even be considered a mild inconvenience.

    The Cliffhanger though.

  • jacobpaige

    Going off of just his personality, Guardian was the obvious choice, but I figured that his father’s influence would sway him towards Retribution with “something else” being the next most likely.

    • jacobpaige

      Also, I wonder if he’ll have to wait till he’s done with the Guardian Knight training before going to the mountain to pick his mount?

  • Ajay Paulose

    I chose based on what I thought the author would go with rather than his choice. so I was kind of right to pick both/other

    • Oh, knowing TJSS, I think it sounds legit. He doesn’t know the meaning of ‘ordinary MC’ XD
