Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 095


Chapter 95: Actually, I am very ugly (I)

Ye Hua glanced at Long Hao Chen, and said with a snort, “Stinky kid, so this was your background.”

Long Hao Chen lowered his head, “Teacher, I…”

Ye Hua waved his hands and said, “No need to tell me. In fact, when that fatty Nalan let me teach you, I already knew that you had a peculiar background, otherwise, how could you have attained this level of cultivation at such a young age? Is this background your father?”

Long Hao Chen nodded.

Ye Hua patted his shoulder, “No need to overthink this, I don’t blame you. Besides, your luck is indeed quite bad, to meet an opponent of the fifth step in this match. Although you won, your secret has been exposed.”

Long Hao Chen gave Ye Hua a concerned look. His mind in disorder, he approached Ye Hua’s ear and told him something in a very low voice.

Ye Hua’s eyes were instantly wide open, and he looked at Long Hao Chen, astonished.

Long Hao Chen nodded at his direction.
Ye Hua’s ice-cold face revealed a smile even uglier than a crying expression, before giving him a thumbs up.

“Teacher, what is a retainer knight?” Long Hao Chen asked, full of curiosity.

Ye Hua answered, “What you gained this time was quite convenient. A retainer knight is like the retainer warriors of a mage. The sole difference, is that one’s retainer knight can be considered as his servant, rather than a regular partner of his. The fact he made an oath implies that if you are to meet a dangerous situation, he will have no other choice than to risk his life by your side. It’s like a human shield. According to the rules and regulations of the Demon Hunt Squads, this kind of existences called retenues are normally not allowed, but knight retenues are the exception. If a knight is a Retribution Knight, then he is permitted to have a training Guardian Knight as his retinue. It is because in regard to Demon Hunt Squads, Guardian Knights are extremely useful.”

“Only, there is almost no knight that is willing to become someone’s retinue. Consequently, you can be said to have picked up a treasure. And this retinue is in addition a knight of the fifth step! When you will enter a Demon Hunt Squad in the future, in terms of sustainability, he will be extremely useful. Furthermore, for having reached the fifth step before his 25 years-old, his background cannot be so simple.”

Long Hao Chen scratched his head, and said, “But, his cultivation level is higher than mine, he may not necessarily accept this.”

Ye Hua showed a mysterious smile, “You are looking down on the oath of a retainer knight. No matter how proud he is, under this oath, you will be his everything, his master. Even if deep inside, he doesn’t accept it, all his thoughts will have to be directed to your sake.”

“Teacher, I’ll be returning first, I have already fully recovered and I also have to rest for tomorrow’s match.” Long Hao Chen hadn’t forgotten the promise he made to Cai’er, and now that his match had ended, he felt an urge to fulfill it as soon as possible.

Ye Hua nodded, and gave his agreement, “Go. However, don’t be over-hasty, there will be no need for you to participate in tomorrow’s match.”

“Huh?” Long Hao Chen stared at him, completely astonished.

The nearby Li Xin was smiling, “Foolish brother, did you forget about the vacant place? If no one else other than you can beat a knight of the fifth step today, how could it run out of your palm?”

Long Hao Chen suddenly realized that now that he had defeated Han Yu, he should be able to seize this vacant place!

If the competition was the only issue, he wouldn’t be particularly rejoiced, because he hoped to increase his combat experience against powerful opponents, while arousing his potential.

But this last day was different. He was indeed on the verge of having his spiritual energy liquefied, after figuring out how [Storing Power] could be used as a training method. In such circumstances, what he needed the most was some time of quiet practice.

Exiting the Knight Stadium, Long Hao Chen impatiently headed at running pace to Cai’er’s location. In a distant place, he saw Cai’er who calmly stood there. She had stood at the same place of the street as before, for a long time, just like a sculpture, and was dressed up the same way as the last times.

The sunlight was sprinkled across her body, and under its warm rays, her purple hair seemed to have acquired a crystal-clear gloss.

“Cai’er.” Long Hao Chen called out, running at full speed toward her.

As soon as she heard his voice, Cai’er was shaken, but when she felt him approaching, she felt an intense chill scattering all over her body.

“Cai’er, what’s up?” Long Hao Chen was startled, suddenly stopping.

Cai’er’s voice didn’t have the slightest coldness, “You are injured? Who was it that injured you?” As she was speaking, she lifted up her hand, naturally grabbing Long Hao Chen’s.

Long Hao Chen had a curious look, “How do you know that I am injured?”

Cai’er said, “I could hear it. Although I cannot see, my hearing is a lot better than ordinary people’s. Your breathing is unnatural, so it is clear that you have been wounded.” At this moment, the chill she felt in her body had appeased, and she let go of Long Hao Chen’s hand.

Long Hao Chen chuckled, “It’s nothing. I am participating in the Demon Hunt Selection of the Alliance and today, I encountered a powerful opponent, so I have received minor injuries, but nothing serious. However, I won. Right, I haven’t told you yet, but I am a knight. Today, I had a good match, and since there will be a vacant place tomorrow, I should already be in the top ten.”

“Mh.” Cai’er lightly nodded, and her body wasn’t sending out chills anymore.

“Let’s go, I’m sending you back.” This time, it was Long Hao Chen who took the initiative to grab her little hand, slowly pulling her in the direction of her hotel.

The two youths slowly walked. The atmosphere was very quiet, and Long Hao Chen advanced slowly, just like a kid first learning how to walk. As the sunlight sprinkled across their bodies, a pleasant, warm feeling filled them as their heartbeats sped up.

However, no matter how slow they were, the path would finally meet its end.

In the instant they stopped in their tracks, a change appeared in Long Hao Chen; he was inwardly reluctant to part with her. After feeling the warmth of when he was holding her hand, he was unwilling to let it go.

“Rest quickly when you return. I will be waiting for you tomorrow.” Cai’er quietly said.

“Okay. I will definitely come early, tomorrow I’ll be taking the vacant place, so I’ll be able to come first and wait for you.”

His heart couldn’t bear to separate from her, “Go in first, I’ll wait for you to enter before leaving.”

But Cai’er shook her head and said, “I want to hear your footsteps as you leave, is it okay?”

He didn’t know why, but every time Long Hao Chen saw her expressionless eyes, he was unable to decline her, “Okay, then be careful when you go back, okay.”

“Don’t try to take risks like you did today, in your future matches.” Cai’er suddenly said.

Long Hao Chen chuckled, “I am not taking risks, I am being diligent. If I don’t try my utmost to become more powerful, who will be here to protect you?” At this point, he clearly felt that his heart was beating a lot faster. He didn’t dare stay here any longer, and left Cai’er, quickly running.

Listening to the sound of his steps as he was leaving, Cai’er’s face became ice-cold once again, “He was wounded. Fortunately, it’s nothing serious.” Her body suddenly flashed with an intense killing intent.


  • TLODAN

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • Tereus

    “Look Hao Chen gave Ye Hua a concerned look.” do you see something wrong in this sentence?
    And Thank You

  • Nomaan Tahir

    Cheers for the chappy.
    So Demon Hunt Squad so far
    LHC bizarre retribution/guardian knight hybrid, with his guardian knight retainer and both their mounts (including the weird Hao Yue)
    Female warrior that uses a shield, but is an axe warrior
    Priest that can’t heal, but can use warrior skills
    Magician that is a little bit fancy and also an alchemist, but perhaps doesn’t have the greatest attacking strength
    Blind assassin who appears to be crazy strong
    Summoner who can summon 8th step monsters.

    I’ll be honest, it’s a weird weird group but very powerful

    • plusy

      the priest is using brute force and some offensive priest skills. but he cant heal 🙂 if he could use warrior skills, then he wouldn’t be called a priest.

      • Nomaan Tahir

        Except you’re wrong

        From chapter 75

        “From the hillside, Chen Chen, who usually didn’t speak much, exclaimed, “[Madness], a priest that can use [Madness]!”

        [Madness] was a skill that was not even necessarily possessed by berserkers. It required a very robust body, and was a secret skill of the Warrior Temple that couldn’t be learnt normally, only rewarded for great merit. Even Chen Chen who was a berserker couldn’t use it. And yet. this bald priest before his eyes apparently could.” ”

        Sima can use Madness which is a secret skill of the warrior temple, that’s why Chen Chen is so surprised.

        • Inbetweenaction

          could also be a general skill

          • Nomaan Tahir

            Clearly stated to be a Warrior Temple Secret Skill.
            I’m not sure why you’d bother to argue anything different.

    • Moridain

      They cover each others weaknesses well though. 🙂

      The priest that can’t heal isn’t too big a deal with two guardian knights in the group and the backup of an alchemist.

      They are lacking ranged dps if the mage sucks, but hopefully summons can handle that? If the mage is a control specialist that would make it a non-issue too, since if they can pin people down their melee kicks ass.

      plus any weirdness is easily covered by the OP MC and Assassin.

      • Nomaan Tahir

        Hao Yue can heal as well, so they’re covered, it’s just a strange group.
        Hao Yue also has ranged attacks

        • Inbetweenaction

          2 knights don’t a priest make, even if they supposedly can stock up on potions for grossist prices

          • Nomaan Tahir

            Perhaps 2 regular knights might not make up for a regular 4th step priest, but 1 5th Step Guardian Knight, 1 soon to be 5th Step Dual Class Knight with Scion of Light Physique and Hao Yue who after evolving will be a minimum of 5th Step, probably will. Especially when factoring in the recovery pills Lin Xin can make.

  • Andrew L

    Is, is Cai’er Yandere? O_o That ending was seriously scary.

    • Bear Cat Egg

      Yandere love interest is the best love interest!

    • plusy

      she is a child assassin. ofc she is nuts.

      • Piedpiper1

        What do you mean child assassin she’s around the same age as him

        • Michael Finjan

          well, she´s like 13.. shouldn´t that count as a child?

          • The Dragon King

            If she is 13 she and he literally just became teenagers, so no

        • zhertz

          i really think that you forgot about LHC age… lol

    • Vivec

      Yandere is fine as long as the MC doesn’t neglect the yandere. The dangerous thing would be if she reaches ultra coddling mode, but it’s clear she’s not there yet, and with her aging and naturally maturing she should end up with a clear enough mind not to go that far.

      Those who hurt LHC better beware though.

    • MoarDakka

      My Crazy sense is tingling. We must run before it’s too late!!!

      • Inbetweenaction

        as the assassins qualifier showed, you can’t run fast enough, and you can not hide. she will get you

    • junior

      Would being super worried, just worried, about someone count as yandere?

      • Ophis

        Well, if she’s releasing killing intent because of that, yes, I’m afraid it counts as being Yandere. After all, it was just a match where it’s normal to receive injuries.

      • Seink

        For now its just the first signs, lets wait to see if her yandere mind level ups along the story. Maybe when she first meet Chen’s ‘sister’…. XD

    • Seink

      As long as you care about them, yandere are way better than tsundere. Just make sure you keep her “Yan” part in check ;), teaching her a few limits and gives her lots of love and she will be “dere” all you want ^^.
      (words of a dead guy, dont trust it!)

      Thanks for the translation!

      • Corfal

        The scary thing is the “Yan” can be directed at their beloved, “If I can’t have them, no one can!” O.O

      • Shannon

        My favorite yandere didn’t keep anything in check. Gasai Yuno forever!

        • Triopsate

          Well Yuki was pretty bad at keeping anything in check in the first place…

          • Shannon

            Once his dad was killed, he got better… Then worse, lol… Then better again!

    • Jack

      It’d suck if she kills his awesome new servant.

      • Michael Finjan

        yea, who dosen´t want a free meat shield?

        • agila0212

          hahahaha true

    • RyokoZero

      As long as she doesn’t meet his big sisters everything will be fine.

      Ekk..

      • ScotlandForsythe

        I can just see Li Xin’s face as she either glares or gushes about her little brother being in love (>.<)

    • Justine Dautelle

      I hope so ! :p The ending was pretty cool. I Ship ’em SOOO BAD !!! XD

  • Arifa00

    thx for the chapter

  • emmuli1999

    Even teasers always have a cliffhanger, how mean.

  • Frenzy85

    Been thinking… Cai’er is both younger and stronger than him, right?

    Could she possibly the assassin version of the Scion of Light? It would be weird if a regular person could match LHC’s purportedly legendary level of talent and dilligence.

    • Taiki

      I doubt that she’s necessarily AS talented as him. She’s definitely extremely talented, but she’s probably been undergoing severe training (sensory deprivation, etc) most of her life, meanwhile LHC didn’t even use pei yun liquid to help him train faster and only started really training at 8 years old. If we were to put her talent in Knight terms, she’d probably be somewhere in the 80s. That’s still amazing though.

    • Usman Nasir

      she started her training earlier and he had not been drinking the cultivation medicine for a long time bcuz he gave it to his mom

  • Lutre

    Thanks

  • Arifa00

    who harm my hubby you will not survive — Cai’er

    on another note thanks for the chapter

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • Varler

    D’aww…. that was such a sweet chapter! It’s gonna give me diabetes.

  • Degs

    Thanks for another chapter! : D Man, hopefully cai-er never discovers that LHC’s retinue is the one who hurt him, otherwise he might really become a meat shield

    • zhertz

      i think you meant meat bag

  • jacbopaige

    Uh oh, noobie will be in trouble if Cai’er finds out it was him that hurt LHC 😉

  • Toxicparasite

    Everyone’s saying caier is yandere but idk if it’s that bad. She was just raised as an assassin of course she will be cold and think of killing as a main option

  • k1nk4

    • Al

  • Frun Blumglin

    thanks for the chapter!!!~

  • Prakhar Garhwal

    what if the number of heads hao yue has corresponds to the no of girls in LHC’s harem. Little light is gentle corresponding to the mage girl whereas the fire head corresponds to the knight girl.

  • Prakhar Garhwal

  • Bravo

    Never stick your dick in crazy, LHC. It never ends well.

    Never stick your dick in crazy, LHC. It never ends well.

  • BurningAlpha

    I wonder what LHC actually whispered to Ye Hua… I was thinking maybe he told him who his father was :/

  • yay things keep on being fun to read :3

  • Tereus

    1. “Look Hao Chen gave Ye Hua a concerned look.”
    2. “Long Hao Chen gave Ye Hua a concerned look.”
    You have nr 1. and you should have nr 2. It’s just 2 letter difference.
    It’s 11th line of the text.
    P.S. you can delete my older post when you see this Totobro.
