Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 103

Chapter 103: Cai’er’s Wrath (2)

“Coma due to serious wounds, he is really in a coma because of serious wounds.” The temperature in the room dropped down once again and astonishingly, the cane in Cai’er’s hand pierced the floor of the room.

“Yang… Wen… Zhao. ” A pitch-black ring appeared and twinkled from Cai’er’s chest, and in the next instant, she, who was previously seated on the chair, started to disappear, little by little. More precisely, it was her afterimage that was gradually fading away.

Yang Wenzhao was just having dinner; after having beaten Long Hao Chen, he had already entered the top five, and he was now one step closer to his final goal. Only, this fight left him with a feeling of unease. It was the kind of feeling that hadn’t arisen in him for several years.

How old is he exactly? After the match, Yang Wenzhao investigated on this matter, but didn’t get any answer. One should know that even though some matters have kept him from coming, he still had an important position within the Temple.

“He’s at least four or five years younger than me.” Yang Wenzhao murmured to himself, “Only, I don’t know whether it is his innate talents that are better than mine or his efforts. Perhaps, in a couple months at most, he will break through to the fifth step. And I am currently only at the third rank of the fifth step. If he keeps improving at such a rate, he will most likely be my greatest rival in the future.”

At this point, Yang Wenzhao revealed a faint smile, “It’s good like that, having this kind of rival will be a source of motivation for me, it will have beneficial effects on my future progression. This kind of person finally appeared in the Knight Temple; only, I hope that his mount won’t disappoint me.”

During his spar with Long Hao Chen, he was greatly shocked, especially when Long Hao Chen used the skill [Sacrifice]. Even though the consequences were unknown to him, after he used it, Long Hao Chen became an extremely hard opponent to deal with. If not for his Spiritual Stove’s ability, even though he could normally hold out for the duration of [Sacrifice], he would definitely have ended up wounded.

“Saint Spiritual Stove? There’s still a wide gap between it and my Starsea Spiritual Stove.”

The Starsea Spiritual Stove was ranked 18th among the spiritual stove that knights could fuse with. It surpassed by far the Saint Spiritual Stove in terms of ranking, and could evolve up to three times. Yang Wenzhao had currently already completed the first evolution: it was what he had mostly relied on during his previous match.

“Ga… ap?” Suddenly, these two words echoed in Yang Wenzhao’s room. What made him turn pale with fright was that this voice could be heard from all directions, he could basically not determine its source at all. And even with his good senses, he didn’t feel this person’s arrival at all.

The window trembled, and in the next instant, a slim silhouette quietly emerged in front of Yang Wenzhao.

Yang Wenzhao swiftly took a step back. As one of his hands glittered, two claymores appeared in his hands and a strong radiance erupted from his body, instantly lighting the whole house. In such a crisis, he calmly reacted to the situation, but inwardly, his fear was far from having disappeared. If not for the fact the person before his eyes had revealed herself voluntarily, there was no way he would have detected her arrival, so if she had mounted a sneak attack…

Yang Wenzhao didn’t dare think any longer about that, and focused on the perilous situation he was currently facing.

“An assassin?” He calmly voiced out, while carefully observing the person he was facing.

A black long skirt, a part of her face was hidden by a black veil, her right hand was grasping a blue cane, and her feeble body was blowing like a gust of wind. Her purple hair hung behind her body, but the thing that astonished Yang Wenzhao the most was that her eyes, which were not hidden by the veil, didn’t contain the slightest emotion.

“You shouldn’t have wounded him.” Each word Cai’er let out was causing Yang Wenzhao’s heart to palpitate.

“Magic sound waves going through the mind?” Yang Wenzhao instantly became careful, the radiance surrounding his body materialized, forming after condensing a faint armor covering his whole body and from his chest, drops of blue shining rings were released. Facing this girl he never saw before but who was about to threaten his life, he could only go all out.

“Pf–” Cai’er’s hand was still gripping her cane at the same place, as she stood there, completely motionless.

Completely sensing his surrounding, Yang Wenzhao suddenly lifted up the claymore in his right hand.

With a Danglang sound, a gold-colored radiance appeared, it was [Divine Obstruction]. A black silhouette instantly leaned forward, it was the Cai’er who still stood at the same location; she started to progressively disappear.

[Shadow Doppelganger].

Yang Wenzhao was completely astonished, thrusting the claymore in his left hand into the ground, he immediately made [Heavenly Battle Array] break out, and simultaneously, ten minuscule blue-colored balls of light came out from his chest.

These minuscule blue-colored balls of light didn’t need his command to instantly head towards the direction of the enemy and explode.

Cai’er appeared by Yang Wenzhao’s side; [Divine Obstruction] blocked her first blow, and Yang Wenzhao’s reaction speed was extremely fast, the blue-colored balls of light released by his Starsea Spiritual Stove immediately exploded, covering her in their range.

But without even letting Yang Wenzhao the time to take a breath, an unimaginable scene took place.

Cai’er’s right hand that was put aside from beginning to end still didn’t move the slightest bit, and on her right hand, a gold-colored dagger appeared, brutally creating sparkles. Then, Yang Wenzhao could clearly see that each of the Starsea Strikes launched by his Starsea Spiritual Stove were unexpectedly shattered.

Cai’er’s speed was so fast that Yang Wenzhao had completely lost sight of her. Each swing of the dagger in her right hand destroyed a ball of light completely scattering it as if they were clouds. In the next instant, all these minuscule blue balls had completely vanished.

After everything that was said, Yang Wenzhao was still a true genius who had beaten Long Hao Chen, and in addition, a Retribution Knight; as such, he had already calmed down. When facing an assassin, a knight had a natural advantage, because knights’ defensive capabilities were high, and their offensive power wasn’t lacking either. In addition, they had a lot of powerful abilities that could restrain assassins. Assassins had powerful offensive capabilities, but their defense was their fatal weakness: as long as they could be hit once or twice by the knight, they were very likely to lose the ability to keep fighting.

Simultaneously shaking his two hands, he launched a pair of [Light Thorns]. A great amount of light energy surged out from the two claymores, turning into numerous sword shadows aiming at all directions. Considering the speed of this assasin, this attacking pattern was the most effective possible.

Cai’er let out a cold snort as her frail body started to move according to a peculiar tempo. It appeared that her body only moved slightly and with simple movements, but she avoided all these gold-colored sword shadows aimed at her that had basically no way at all to hit her.

From Yang Wenzhao’s point of view, the current Cai’er was like a ghost’s shadow, as she easily avoided all his attacks. But wasn’t this… the secret skill that could be used by assassins of the fifth step, [Spectral Dodging]?

Yang Wenzhao didn’t manage to hit the enemy at all. A strong gold shine suddenly erupted from within his body, and a dragon cry could be heard, it was [Ascending Dragon Strike]. Only, this time, [Ascending Dragon Strike] wasn’t directed upward, but forward.

[Ascending Dragon Strike] wasn’t only a skill with an extremely powerful firepower: it was an ability that combined both attack and defense in one. With the help of the [Light Thorns] aimed forward, he took the opportunity to launch [Ascending Dragon Strike]. At that moment, his Starsea Spiritual Stove glittered once again, and another dozen of minuscule blue-colored balls of light rushed forth, aiming this time to defend him, rather than attacking. They revolved around his body at a great speed.

Yang Wenzhao’s aim was to take advantage of [Ascending Dragon Strike]’s momentum to break out of the room, because in this narrow space, he had no way to bring out the most of his capabilities. Once he was outside, he could at least summon his companion mount. At that moment, he would not be forced to stay so passive anymore.

Cai’er’s sparkling figure suddenly froze; she suddenly stopped to dodge and stood right in the middle of the path of [Ascending Dragon Strike]. Her delicate figure slightly stretched forward, and in a split second, a pitch-black shadow appeared. This shadow was shapeless and looked like a reflection of Cai’er.


The bright light disappeared and Yang Wenzhao’s soaring figure was forcibly pushed back. His [Ascending Dragon Strike] technique that gave Long Hao Chen a lot of trouble had simply been blocked off by the overwhelming effect of this black shadow.

Yang Wenzhao stumbled back, he had never encountered a force such as the one that had just appeared in front of his very eyes. It was so imposing that it left a dozen of marks on his two swords.

[Despotic Stab] was another assassin skill of the fifth step, but more importantly, Cai’er’s body emitted a sort of cold air that seemed as if it contained death itself, making her opponent feel as if he was about to be stabbed by a sharp blade. This frightening sensation was extremely hard to take.

However, at that time, Yang Wenzhao didn’t even have the time to analyze the situation. By chance, he had his Starsea Spiritual Stove to partly protect him. Even this tyrannical Starsea Spiritual Stove could not even display its mighty power, and could only be suppressed under the influence of Cai’er’s dagger.

Suddenly, Yang Wenzhao woke up to reality. This is the particular assassin skill known as [Sly Stab], if I remember well. I think it is aimed at countering magic effects, including the effect of the opponent’s spiritual stove. This female assassin is clearly extremely young, but she was an incredible threat to him.

It would be so great if he could use the skill [Lock]. If it was the case, he could at least deal with her [Spectral Dodging] with it.

As he was thinking to himself, Yang Wenzhao didn’t stay idle: [Assault], [Thorny Charge], [Shining Solar Strike], these three abilities were launched at one go, and a blue radiance was emitted from the Starsea Spiritual Stove in his chest, turning into a blue topaz armor covering his whole body. This was the ability his spiritual stove gained after its first evolution, [Starry Spiritual Armor].

Yang Wenzhao clearly understood that if he kept fighting in such a narrow space, he would have to fight more and more passively. He would rather let himself be hit by the opponent’s attack if it enabled him to rush out. Although this assassin was quite formidable, as long as he could summon his mount, he should be able to match her.

Cai’er was blind, but her attacks were even more tyrannical than those launched by assassins who could see. Her dominance was absolute. Actually, she had a lot of ways to attack him and achieve better results, but she remembered what her subordinate told her about the way Long Hao Chen’s match took place, and the fact Yang Wenzhao’s and Long Hao Chen fought head on from beginning to end.

Head on? Then let’s go head on too.

“Dang.” The black glow amplified, taking the [Shining Solar Strike] head on. Her strategy was completely un-assassin-like, but rather warrior-like.

Yang Wenzhao felt that his [Shining Solar Strike]’s piercing power was completely taken away as this radiance as dazzling as the sun disappeared.

In terms of spiritual energy level, Yang Wenzhao could feel that his opponent wasn’t a lot stronger than him, but her spiritual energy was compressed to a frightening extent. It felt as if she had completely fused with her deathly aura.


Yang Wenzhao’s body ruthlessly collided with the wall, shaking the whole hotel. In the next instant, thousands of hundreds of white lights suddenly appeared before his eyes.

Block them? He had no way to block, and in a split second, Yang Wenzhao’s mind became completely blank.

If Long Hao Chen was there, he would definitely have recognized that the white light that came out from Cai’er’s chest was corresponding to the Thousand Strikes Spiritual Stoves.

Tut, tut, tut, tut, tut, tut…

A series of meat cutting noises resounded, as countless blue rays splashed down from the air.

An ice-cold voice directly echoed in Yang Wenzhao’s ear, “You used your spiritual stove to wound him, so I will use my spiritual stove to break yours.”


All these dots of lights suddenly stopped in midair; Cai’er stood extremely close to Yang Wenzhao, sticking her sharp knife into the middle of his chest. As the direct victim, Yang Wenzhao felt as if the spiritual energy in his body was completely depleted. And from beginning to end, Cai’er had only used her right hand.

  • Jormungand

    Thank you for translations! Sadly, I strongly disagree with Cai’er’s actions. I believe she’ll be put to shame when Long Chen finds out.

    • Jack

      Really? From the tone of the series, I kind of feel like she’ll get a scolding, and that’ll be that.

      • Michael Finjan

        that actually sounds like something that would happen

  • Ark

    Thx for the chapter.

  • DoDaDum

    Thank you for the chapter!

    And, OMG, a Yandere has been confirmed!!!

  • Feztastic

    “he had encountered a force such as the one that had just appeared in front of his very eyes.”

    Shouldn’t this be:

    “he had never encountered a force such as the one that had just appeared in front of his very eyes.”

    Doesn’t make sense otherwise.

    • yup fixed thanks.

      haha I skipped a word, happens sometimes :p.

  • Neomistress

    Lol, she didn’t even take the time to figure out the situation. Cai’er never struck me as the brash kind.

    • Argos

      I think she got the important details;

      Dude wounded hubby.
      Dude must be wounded in return.

      • Varler

        She also figured out how hubby was wounded and returned that, too. Lol.

      • Toffu

        This is between Knights! How dare a lowly cumbucket get her fucking nose in this!

        • mangochic

          She isn’t a lowly cumbucket.

          • Luke Confidential

            No, she’s a Fifth Stage cumbucket.

  • Leticia

    So~ she killed him or not?

    • Varler

      Didn’t kill.

      • Michael Finjan


  • kensche heiashi

    Thank ya very much for the translation, translator! Many thanks towards the Author!

  • Tj Hale

    im against what she did tbh, long hao did more damage to himself then yang tbh. it was a warriors fight. what she did dishonors long hao extremely.

    • Varler

      She’s an assassin, she doesn’t need to be honorable. Plus, she’s already more honorable by attacking from the front rather than just stabbing him from behind.
      Also, it’s forgivable what she’s doing, because she’s just too cute. After all, she’s doing this for Long Hao Chen! Isn’t that adorable?

      • Diedonetw

        I’m not against Cai’er in any way. Don’t tell me if you discover the only person you cared about (given his great and honorable personality too) has been wounded in a fight versus quite stronger and older oponent you wouldn’t do anything about it. Imho he’s getting off lightly if he loses only his spiritual stove.

        • Poulos maximus the great

          The point as to why people think it is wrong is because yan whatever may be a b***h, but he never actually directly harmed LHC. LHC caused his own coma when he did sacrifice

          • Diedonetw

            Given LHC personality that is indeed true and he’d do it again. But given Cai’er’s personality do you expect her to do nothing? And she’d do it again in the same situation. If you don’t like it – stop reading.You’re upset because the author decided to actually give her a more realistic personality considering the circumstances. Ain’t everything going your way – simple as that.

          • Toffu

            An assassin suppose to be clear headed at all times. This little girl is too strong and too emotional. That’s fucking dangerous. She’s crazy… LHC better run before he stick his D in her.

            Also telling people to stop reading it just because their opinion differs from yours is pretty close to being retarded.

          • OmegaGoodJob!

            I don’t want to get involve to the people like you. you are my polar opposite forcefully pushing their opinion to others like assassin suppose to be like this, like that. I remember having an argument to a guy exactly with the same personality like you repeatedly saying it should be like this, like that I got pissed and immediately punch him in the face, end of discussion I’m weak in exchanging words with others so I express my opinion with Actions. I’m kinda open minded accepting opinions of others but as far as pushing your opinion and values to me I’ll punch you.!
            well I’m just saying my opinion you don’t have to reply.
            Good Day !!

          • Firekarkon

            I agree that it makes her less perfect. I feel like LN’s authors think that controversy = realism. It’s not realistic for people to react like that. Or am I wrong? I don’t know… I’m not concerned so much about Cai’Er (she’s fcked up but what are u gonna do about it? nothin’) but some people write comments like ” yeah punch him into the ground!” “oh she’s awesome! she almost killed that asshole!” “he hurt LHC’s feelings, she should break the stove at least! the best would be killing him ofc” These are not exact citations but general nature of these comments

        • Frenzy85

          It was a competition and he held back as much as possible. What more do you want from him?

        • Varler

          I hope he doesn’t actually lose his stove, since he’s not a bad guy and will be a good rival for Long Hao Chen as well as an important asset for humanity against the demons. If he loses his spiritual stove, it’ll be a large setback to him.
          I do hope he gets the scare of his life, though.

          • Luke Confidential

            He won’t last as a Rival. One year’s time and he’ll be of lower stage than LHC

        • Toffu

          Lightly? Getting a slap in the face is lightly. This is way too much. First, it was a competition. Second, the guy held back as much as he could fighting LHC otherwise our MC ends up dead and it’s the end of the story. IT WAS AN HONORABLE FIGHT. HE IS NOT A BAD GUY. SHE IS CRAZY AND YOU SIR ARE DUMB AS A BUCKET OF FECAL MATTER.

          She have no right whatsoever to get her hands in LHC business this way. Nobody gets anything from this. The match has ended LHC is recuperating and this bitch decide to hurt his opponent. The guy is an honorable knight if the higher up gets a wind of this things will get way bigger than it needs to. She’s only causing more trouble for other people.

          She’s crazy I hope she gets a real punishment. Like chop off her hand or something.

      • Firekarkon

        Nope. I find meddling too much very irritating and harmful for any relationships.

      • Frenzy85

        An assassination attempt is… cute?

        • mangochic

          Its not an assassination attempt. If it was, he would be dead already. She will probably only break his saint stove and he can get another one.

      • Toffu

        “it’s forgivable what she’s doing, because she’s just too cute. ”

        That’s about the dumbest thing I’ve heard this month. But you’re probably just that stupid. Have fun being ignorant! 🙂

        • zhertz

          i know right? you cant forgive something that is just cute lol thats stupid! you can only forgive someone when you are the only beautifull like the empress HANCOCK!! 140 degrees angle of looking down!


        • Varler

          I don’t think you know what humor is…

    • Jack

      Well, she does seem to be a little crazy. Crazy doesn’t support logic. It does however, support obsession.

      • Firekarkon

        Thank you very much. That’s the word I was looking for! Obession. Priorities: first retribution (pun intended) then checking on the “loved” one personally = obsession (not love)

  • Pavel


  • Pavel


  • Poulos maximus the great

    Please tell me i’m not the only one who feels this was a bit excessive

    • Jack

      You’re not. Just scroll down!

      • Arifa00

        yeahh it’s excessive, make it like he is a jerk i tell you so we can relate to it. but NO he is a fair man and then this happen. maybe it’s important so there will be drama between cai er and long hao

        • Datguy

          This was super excessive. I really hope LHC finds out and cuts off ties with Cai’er. That or her character suffers some sort of grave misfortune.

          • Firekarkon

            ah, that’s a little too harsh. He just has to let her know that she’s overprotective and she shouldn’t meddle. I don’t mean “you know, that’s not nice of you to cut Yang like that. That’s bad don’t do that”. I mean “you freakin’ out of your mind?! are you crazy!? beatin’ him up cuz I lost to him in a match!? don’t do that ever again! get over your shit! don’t expect to meet me for a few days!” Although it’s absolutely impossible for LHC to find out about her misdeeds knowing the author.

            Wah, last time I commented about smth from LN so much was when Close Combat Mage MC jumped out with his perfect logic about some staff.

    • ⒼⓞⓀⓊ☁

      yeah i skipped the chapter because i though the fight was a pointless wast of a chapter

    • RyokoZero

      IDK… she is an assassin… she thinks like an assassin, so… she approached him more honorable than any other assassin and then even took his attacks non-assassin style and then subdued him.

      If I was Klingon… i would say she was and fought honorable but still in the wrong. But then Klingons have the right to revenge but they have to take it… if they fail they honorably have to coup with their love one assailant still living.

      • Majk

        She did absolutely not think like an assassin but like a child that for the first time found someone who she cares for and then after hearing that he was hurt goes on a rampage without going deeper into the details of what happened.

        • RyokoZero

          One she is a child, Two she doesn’t know about feelings and they just all kinda hit her at the same time… thus the rash childish BUT very assassin like action.

          • Toffu

            One. She’s not a normal child. She was trained since she was a toddler. I don’t think you know what an assassin is.

          • Firekarkon

            Leon the Proffesional is

          • RyokoZero

            I guess I don’t…. never meet a real one.

    • kencchi

      Yea i dont think it was necessary to attack the guy when LHC basically made him go all out in their match when he didn’t even want to. Makes her look obsessed and psychotic a little

  • MoarDakka

    OK guys, it’s official. In this port there are only 2 ships to sail: Yandere Cai’er and Dead End. Choose wisely, and may you be safe in you travels, for I may like Cai’er, but any of my ships are already rekt.

    • Poulos maximus the great

      they were shot down by her LAZERZ!!!

      I silently shipped Cai’er (formerly known as Purple Hair Girl) since the first time she met Long Hao Chen…call me a liar but i did, I am just the type that quietly sits in a corner and doesn’t comment much…

  • Thanks

    I’m loving this 😀

    I’m loving this 😀

  • Frenzy85

    Cai’er defines the word ‘overprotective’.

    I’m not a fan Yang WenZhao’s character since he doesn’t have a shred of modesty, but he’s not evil at all (so far, at least)…

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Shak

    Hey guys i want to point out why the story took this turn and the decision made by caier
    There are 2 reasons 1 is the way the 5th step dude fought MC he didnt go all out wich made mc very sad hence he managed to use Sacrifice if the 5th step guy went all out from the beginning not lowering himself mc could have gone down with his pride but he didnt get the chance to.
    2nd reason is very simple the 5th step dude used his spiritual stove to inflict mayor damage on mc instead of taking him down with a minor injurie on himself he mentioned it several times if he didnt use the stove he would at least have taken some dmg but he doesnt want to risk it as he wants to get first spot meaning he is only looking out for himself not showing compassion nor did he show tru respect he is a nice guy but a warrior doesnt need nice if he wanted to be nice then go all out like all warriors want.

    • Frenzy85

      1. It’s clear that being 5th step against a 4th step that he has an advantage. That’s why he held back. And it turns out his confidence was somewhat warranted as he won in the end.

      2. His spirit stove didn’t hurt LHC. It simply negated LHC attacks. LHC went into a coma because he used [Sacrifice]. If he didn’t use his stove, they would both be injured…

      • Shak

        it did hurt him the spiritual stove depleted any and all str he had wich in turn consumes his blood and i said the mc felt hurt doesnt matter what reason the 5th step dude has i am talking about what the mc tought himself and what the 5th step dude said him self didnt u follow the toughts they each had?
        At the moment the mc triggerd sacrifice he clearly said he felt humiliated and ashamed he didnt even understand sacrifice yet he managed to trigger it at that exact moment

        • Frenzy85

          “Long Hao Chen, under the effect of [Sacrifice], had entered a new boundary, facing death without fear.”

          “He is going as far as to use the skill of the seventh step, [Sacrifice]. Is Long Xing Yu mad? Don’t tell me he’s not afraid of spoiling things through excessive enthusiasm?”

          “To dare use [Sacrifice], can it be that he’s not afraid of dying from having his blood depleted?”

          “To knights, the skill [Sacrifice] was used as a last resort; for one to sacrifice himself to protect his comrades; to sacrifice himself to deal with his enemies.”

          “If he wanted to use this skill, one had to be determined enough to put his life at stake…”

          “To compel me into using my Starsea Spiritual Stove to stop your attack”

          “Each of these explosions reduced the intensity of the gold-red radiance surrounding Long Hao Chen by a little bit”

          Which do you think was the cause of LHC’s biggest injury?

          The stove merely stopped an attack that LHC already launched. LHC doesn’t gain his energy back even if the attack actually hit.
          In fact, wouldn’t it use MORE energy if he wasn’t stopped?

          LHC’s pride is his personal problem, and has nothing to do with WenZhao. Plus, as I said, WenZhao is clearly stronger than LHC. If he went all-out from the start, LHC would be injured even if he didn’t use Sacrifice.

          • Shak

            you didnt read why he activated sacrifice? he was ashamed and felt deep regret he DIDNT UNDERSTAND THE SKILL when he first read it but now he suddenly used it -.- sigh nvm i will stop if i need to talk to every dude on the i net it will basicly become a curse

          • Sdgao02

            He did understand the skill, cause remember when they say has he gone crazy it says that his dad knew his strength and wouldn’t teach him anything that would hurt him

        • Frenzy85

          Here’s a hypothetical case for comparison.

          Person A and Person B are tennis players.

          A is better than B.
          A defeats B.
          B can’t accept it.
          B trains too hard, disregarding his body.
          B gets injured because of excessive training.

          Is it A’s fault?

          • Shak

            little boy your basicly reading with your eyes closed i already stated several times why there is a problem that world aint the same as ours warriors honor mcs opponent basicly shoved it aside to get 1st place at all costs neither did he confront the mc as equals in the end asume what ever you want mc used sacrifice dont you understand even 1% what that means?

    • Firekarkon

      You can also view it in another way. Wenzhao thinks “I won’t go full out. What’s the point? I know, I’m stronger. He doesn’t even have a mount. I should fight without mount and with restrained power. I will adjust it as the battle goes on to find out how strong the kid is.” LHC’s feels are a laughing matter. Previous fight- “it’s K, it’s K! easy come, easy go, easy win!” Next fight “he dares to restrain himself! I will show him! so sad so mad! so honorable!”

      You played Witcher 3? There’s a knight called Ronvid. He wants a duel with Geralt cuz Geralt said that he doesn’t know Ronvid’s lady, maid Bilberry, so he can’t say whether is she the prettiest in the world. It’s of course a great blasphemy so after losing a duel he tries again and again. In the last duel we fight with three enemies. Ronvid says that only three opponents are enough for Geralt cuz he is blasphemous rouge and scoundrel. There you go with honor etc. etc. etc.

      BTW: Thanks for reminding me this little detail about LHC. I forgot it. Guess the standards are different there 😀 Nowadays you could receive a beatin’ at most ( normally) but there you have a duel. Glorious 😛 In my set texts people were dueling for even smaller things ( 18th century )

  • aapmens

    hmm hope he wont die/get disqualified 🙁 the mc wont like it when and if he found out

  • saryunsenee

    thanks for translating , tho , i didn’t rly like how he wasn’t even able to run away , would rly hate it if he rly died or was unable to practice knight skills anymore.
    but , if hap chen’s talents and abilities make him a super unprecedented genius
    then what would that make of her , she beat the 1 who beat him w/o going all out , while not using her full powers , all while she seemingly is a bit younger than our LHC

    • Toffu

      Ambushed and he just finished a pretty epic fight. Plus she have tons of assassin skills. In a one on one fight where both of them are ready I don’t think she’ll last a minute.

      • saryunsenee

        actually , that wasn’t what u would normally call an ambush now is it ?
        cuz she voluntarily showed herself in front of him , even yang doesn’t dare think what would’ve happened had she not shown herself (as was told above) , also its completely wrong saying she wouldn’t last a minute in a 1 o 1 fight cuz that was actually a 1 o 1 HEAD-ON fight which was pretty disadvantageous to assassins
        and while he was also disadvantaged cuz he couldn’t summon his mount in the narrow room , she wasn’t using her full power & normal tactics besides not even using her right hand.
        from that , one could see how much she OPed him , which is the thing i didn’t like cuz that means he’s much weaker than her.
        also , something else to show her might was that she was pushing him while he was using his spiritual stove and could defeat him but only wanted to use hers to destroy his as punishment for using it against LHC

    Thank you very much for this chapter

  • Andrez-ssi

    thanks for the chapter!
    who thinks he’ll be unable to practice skills or that he’ll at least end up handicapped?

    • saryunsenee

      hope it doesn’t rly happen , but i fear its still a possibility

  • Andrez-ssi

    thanks for the chapter!
    who thinks he’ll be unable to practice skills or that he’ll at least end up handicapped?

  • Volleydeck

    For everyone saying that they think Cai’er went overboard let’s remember that our dear LHC straight-up killed a guy for trash talking his mom in a mama joke type of fashion. Also don’t forget two things, one the dude isn’t dead yet. Secondly, apparently LHC is the only person who has ever shown Cai’er any form of companion and warmth in her 14 years of life, read last chapter for reference, and was put in a coma by the guy. We as readers know that LHC will be fine in a chapter or two but, unless she breaks the 4th wall, Cai’er has no idea when he’ll be up and about. Her reaction given the situation is understandable.

    P.S. Thank you for the translation!

    • Volleydeck

      Compassion not companion*

    • Dauntes

      I forgot he killed that Warrior! Good memory.

      • Michael Finjan

        which chapter, seems like imma getting senile

        • Volleydeck

          Chapter 17 right after the Standard examination arc

          • Michael Finjan

            aah that guy, he were just some random guy.. never mind him

    • Toffu

      He ask for a duel and the guy accepted. This, just straight up ambush. I know she’s an assassin and all but didn’t she think of what LHC will think of her action? Aren’t assassin suppose to be calm? She trained by losing her voice and now her sight and still let her emotion get the best of her?

    • Firekarkon

      I understand it as much as I understand racist beatin’ up Arabs, Gypsies etc.

      Got a little “overboard” there but you understand me! Right?

  • Dauntes

    …Holy crap. I honestly didn’t expect this.

    Thanks so much for the chapter! 😀

  • Draconic

    Thanks a lot!
    <3 Cai'er!

  • MeawFactor

    Cai’er please dont be a 2nd yozora 😔

  • Majk

    Cai’er clearly went overboard and here is why:
    1 As an assasin she lost contrlo of her emocions not because her huby got hurt in a streat fight but in a turnament with rules that LHC was ok with
    2 She didnt even inform herself about what happend properly thinking that it was Wenzhaos spirtual stove that sent him into a coma when it was LHC himself that did it
    3 Does she (and the people defending her) really nt realize that when LHC wakes up one of the first things that he will want to face Wenzhao when they are bought going all out.

    • Majk

      Also there are people who re defending her on the account that it was Wenzhaos foult for not going all out thus making LHC fell sad…..THAT IS SUCH BULL. In case you forgot this guy beat him even after Sacrifice was activated so yeah he was a lot stronger than LHC not to mencion that wouldent it have been for his spiritual sotve then LHC would have died because he is to emecional. His father pointed this out long ago his emocions are his stronges and weakest point and here we saw them as a weakness.

      If you want to say that it is ok beace it fits into the world of this story then you are wrong because pele FORM THIS WORLD clearly thought that he was going to far to the point that he may even dastroy himself which he would have done wouldent it have been for his stove.

      Oh and think about it form Wenzhaos point of view for a honnorable knight like him it would not have been honorable to go all out. And seriosly LHC basycly throws a fit beacause he met someone colse to his age who is still not a full on powerhouse withing the temples but is strong enough to not go all out agenst him.

  • Shance

    Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah… Damn

  • George Harris

    I saw this coming, just look at the chapter section titles … that said, well done girl! though next time confirm that the MC has feeling for you first! Though I’m pretty sure he does … and no I haven’t read ahead or before, it’s just comes over like that kind of story.

  • ictiongson

    copied from reddit:

    Why LCH used Sacrifice.

    Why did he do so? He did it for his honor as a knight. At the moment Long Hao Chen felt that his opponent wasn’t fighting with his full strength, he became completely obstinate; his thirst for victory as well as the humiliation he felt from this act pushed him to use this ability, even though he had never really managed to comprehend it.

    Yang Wen Zhao would’ve won even without putting LCH in coma.

    He was confident in his ability of resisting Long Hao Chen’s attack, but if he directly took it on, he would definitely end up wounded. And Yang Wenzhao’s ambitions weren’t limited to with this first round; what he aimed for was the first place of this knight competition, and the first place of the final stage of the Demon Hunt Selection. At such a moment, how could he let himself end up wounded?

    ”Sacrifice” didn’t have any impact on LCH because of his Saint Spiritual Stove. LCH’s Stove don’t have any offensive capability compared to Yang Wen Zhao’s.

    “A Saint Spiritual Stove!” From the platform, Han Qian cried out in astonishment. With a single glance, he saw that Long Hao Chen’s [Sacrifice] aftereffects were suppressed by his Saint Spiritual Stove, as he launched the skill [Lock].

    I hope it make everything clearer.

  • Bright Darkness

    Because iI saw a lot of bullshitt in this one chapter, let me tell ya something. First at all, there is no complete good or evil in this one novel and I really like cause everyone acts like aa human. There is no perfect human. Deal with it. Also you may see this overact but let me ask you something. If a really loved person of yours would be gravely injured, would leave it past just like that? Would ya give a fuck if what are youu gonna do for revenge iss right or wrong? If you still believe thatt wass toook much,excessive or whatever, let me remind you thehe background of their world.

  • Moissonneur66

    So How is Hao Yue going to react to Cai’er? Given what LHC thinks of Hao Yue and his feelings for Cai’er….
    Don’t see it ending to well eh?

  • Bakpia

    The Wifey angry

  • Chelsea S

    her reaction is too much! but not something unexpected of her though, I mean she conceded in her previous fight just so LHC won’t have to wait too long. Clearly, LHC means that much to her. having said that, this girl needs to mature and not let her emotions get way ahead of her.

  • ddadain

    Ah, Caier~~

    This teaches us not to offend a blind girl… Ever @_@

  • Godking

    That girl is absolutely a pathetic hypocrite. Didn’t she wound people when she fought in the tournament. I wish some of the people’s family she wounded got together and broke her spiritual stove.

  • yuzu

    Since everyone’s yelling at my little Cai’er with this and that I’ll just say one thing…..*ahem*……CUTENESS IS JUSTICE! OTHER CRAP DOES NOT MATTER!
    Kay! now bye! 😉
    Ps.Oops almost forgot thanks bro!

    • Toffu

      Get your fat stinking otaku shut-in bullshit out of here. Go hug your pillow waifu~ you sick pervert.

      • yuzu

        shoooo~ little bug!
        I don’t have time to bother arguing SO BYE!
        PS. And you don’t call girls pervert, YOU PERVERT! tsk tsk I’m her sister in-law

  • Shifte

    I seem to recall a few chapters back seeing posts about saying that Cai”er would do exactly what she did in these past to chapters and now people are turned off by it. For one in this chapter it does say that she had knowledge about the way the match went down and no she still didn’t care if it was a fair match or not i assume the assassin guild isn’t the most morally upstanding group in this world unlike the knights temple in her mind Hao’Chen is obviously more important to her that this whole tournie and its prospects anyway she already dropped out of it just to walk home with him so yeah she flipped big deal Hao’Chen killed a man for crakin a mamma joke. And the way i see it dead men tell no tales so how would Hao’Chen find out anyway enough said,,,,,

  • superkuma

    This is what I was afraid would happened after the last chp… poor Wenzhao, I hope he doesn’t relate this attack and Hao Chen

  • JoyJoy415

    Thought I would comment.
    “This shadow was shapeless and looked like a reflexion of Cai’er.”
    Reflexion or reflection? Should be reflection I guess.

    In my opinion in regards to the chapter, Cai Er did act out of line. And for those using the ‘she can do it because she’s cute’, would you still say the same thing if she had been a ugly old woman or as a man? Seriously, going by this logic, does this mean a 8 year old girl who looks very cute has the right to beat you up with a baseball bat then? Funny people and their lolicon fantasies. There is no reason for Cai Er to beat someone who won his fight in a fair manner. No foul play was involved and she does this to him? Jeez. Sometimes the virtues don’t do you good after all…

  • Frostypine

    It is only wrong and or excessive if you go by earth standards. This is not earth, it is another world and in this world the rule of thumb seems to be might makes right. Thus as long as you got the strength to back it up you can do whatever you want no matter who or what you are and most people will revere and respect you for it. Thus by that worlds standards as the girl has might she is in the right, just because she feels it is right she is right and thus anything she does is good unless someone stronger decides otherwise.

    People are saying it is excessive but in a might makes right kind of world like that one she is actually being fairly merciful. If not she would have given him no chance at all and just killed him silently. In other stories of this genre you often see cases where just because they took a dislike to someone a person will go and kill the other person and then when that person’s family goes to take revenge by killing someone they love in return they hypocritically say that person was the one in the wrong and then go to the ones who have fighting power to get even more revenge. Might makes right.

    Also I think it is somewhat confusing that people keep pointing out how it is a just competition because the competition isn’t for kindergarten students having sport just for fun but actual knights most of whom are adults or at least close to being young adults. It is serious business because it is deciding who goes to war. It basically sounds like the governments of that world created it as a way to make battle an honorable prestigious reward instead of a miserable death lottery. It also probably works well because only the most skilled are chosen thus making it more likely for the ‘winners’ to survive to become veterans and thus better fighters.

    Imagine instead of knights if they were a bunch of soldiers from earth about to go and fight to save the world from a great evil. Now as one of these soldiers you have been training all your life in order to fight for and protect your family. Then one of your seniors says to you “Hey cadet we are running low on reinforcements so I got the higher ups to agree to a little bet in the hopes that I will be able to get some of you guys released early, all you have to do is beat one of your seniors in a mock fight how about it?” And so you of course are eager and ready so you say yes. Then as you are fighting this senior you notice he is holding back but he isn’t letting you win either…how would you feel?

    Another thing I think a lot of people are also leaving out (or somehow just not getting) in their thinking is that the guy wasn’t being very disrespectful and wrong to the MC by ‘holding back’. If he had gone all out from the start and taken down the MC with in a few blows then MC wouldn’t have had to push himself and thus get injured. He got angry at the disrespect he was shown and thus pushed himself to the max.

    Ask anyone who experiences it; having someone hold back and not try their best in a competition against you is annoying at best. (unless they are flirting/joking) MC is a knight, a real genuine knight…a great knight who prizes honor. The opponent by not taking him seriously was spitting on his honor.

    Like the guy who became his servant he didn’t even bother to take out his mount. Both of them were very arrogant however since he didn’t shout his arrogance to everyone like the former and he had enough strength that it seemed reasonable for him to hold back he didn’t get in trouble. Frankly like his contemporary I feel he deserves to be taken down a peg or two. What better way to do that then by someone who looks even weaker then the opponent he disrespected.

    Also I think pointing out that you shouldn’t read something that you don’t like isn’t stupid but very wise. It is not about a difference in opinions but a difference in tastes. If one person likes sweet and the other likes sour it makes no sense for sweet to start insulting sour, instead it is better to make their comments on the differences in their preferences not insulting or not bring it up at all.

    • Nomaan Tahir

      Except most of this is a load of hobunk.
      1) The knight didn’t summon his mount, not out of a sense of arrogance but rather a sense of fair play as he didn’t want an unfair advantage.
      2) In a world where Demons are running rampant and killing off humans whenever they can, it is a stupid idea to severely one of the stronger weapons you have against them.
      3) It’s not like Yang brutally injured LHC for no reason, he fought him in a competition and beat him in that, if things had gone slightly differently it would have been Yang who was on the hospital bed and LHC just casually going about his life.
      4) The majority of LHC’s issues are caused by his use of sacrifice.

      I don’t personally disagree with what Cai’er did because she’s young an inexperienced (in a social sense) so it makes a degree of sense from her point of view, however as an action taken in their world it’s not a smart one.
      If Yang had injured LHC out of competition/for no reason, then Cai’er’s actions would be far more reasonable but at the moment they’re more than a little petulant.

      • Luke Confidential

        I think he’s confusing this story with Battle Through The Heavens or Douluo Dalu. Those stories actually ARE Might Makes Right.

        Here it’s Humanity’s mutual struggle against the demons. Sure there are a few bad eggs here or there, but in general there’s a very strong sense of law and order within the Temple Sects. [Granted the Assassin sect very well may be an exception to this.]

  • JZ

    They might as well declare LHC the winner of the competition right away. He might not have a mount, but he has a Yandere girlfriend who will kill anyone who defeats him. Also those two elder-sisters-with-a-crush are strongly advised to get away from LHC as soon as possible. It is definitely not worth it. And regarding LHC having Cai’er for girlfriend, I have no idea if he hit the jackpot or if he is seriously f**ed.

  • aмarтya

    Thats not good sportsmanship………oh well

  • The Dragon King

    Okay I understand she was in the wrong but you can’t totally blame her.

    She was raised as an assassin coldly with no compassion from her teachers unlike the mc Long Hao Chen. She was taught to be emotionless unlike the mc. She was taught to never show compassion unlike the MC and this was since she was a kid. Then she meets him and he protects her not even knowing the situation. Fast forward to the present she reunites with him and feels happiness and emotions she never felt before.

    Now she waits for him and cries when he is not there then she learns he is in a comma (u never know how long those last) becuase of a fight he had with Yang Wenzhao. That she never witnessed with her own eyes so of course she wouldn’t know anything besides they fought fair and square in a Knights dual and that includes she wouldn’t know that he was going easy and Long Hao Chen dealt most of the damage to himself. So now she is overwhelmed with new painful angry ruthless and revenge filled emotions she never felt before and all she news is that Yang fought Long Hao and afterwards he was in a coma.

    Now honestly from this I expected her to do more like swiftly chop off his head with her assassin skills but instead she fought him head on like a knight and just destroyed what she heard him say defeated Long Hao. I’m just saying what she did is bad but it’s not like she did the worst she could have and doesn’t have a reason to have done that. I mean his adoptive big sis (I read the manga sorry if this is not even in the LN) probably would have done something similar but not as severe if she didn’t know any details besides what Cai’er knew.

  • Samir Suhail

    Just how strong is she? WOW! She’s the biggest BAD ASS in this novel. But why do I feel there will be consequences for this since the guy is from a rich background.

  • Tommy

    I don’t disapproved Cai er action…. First, because she didn’t strike him from behind. She even letting her voice out first before she showed herself in front of her… And she beat him frontal head on discarding her assassin temples rule…
    And second She actually quite pissed off when she heard Yang Wen Zhao talking about gap between LHC and him in Yang Wen Zhao. She feels like he underestimating LHC so she also avenged her dearest person by showing the gap between him and her. Third, there is a common word Love is Blind, so she will do anything for her dearest person… So it’s not like all Cai Er fault….

    • Ronald Wood

      Her actions are Cray cray

      • connivinglamb

        well more or less they were pretty yandere yeah

  • Justine Dautelle

    O-o Remind me never to get on Cai’er’s bad side

  • Yin

    Thanks for the chapter!

    I don’t think what Cai’er did was bad. If I have someone who is the only one that shows me kindness and they get hurt, if I’m strong enough, I’d do the same as Cai’er. It’s not like she fought Yang in an unfair fight, she showed herself to him first. And even though Yang did not summon, she in turn only used her right hand. Adding to the fact that she is an assassin, he actually had the advantage.

  • KenKen

    When I heard Cai’er say “Yang… Wen… Zhao. ”…I was Uh Oh, Yang Wen Zhao, ur on her blacklist…he incur the wrath of Cai’er by injuring her man.

    Btw I gotta say tho Cai’er is pretty badass.

    Thnx for the chapter.

  • termt

    Stiiiiiiill think she overreacted.
    It was a competition, half the damage Long Hao Chen sustained was purely caused by himself and then there’s the part where this guy actually views him favorably as a rival.

    • Who Care

      Overreacted ? There is no such thing as overreacting for Yandere <3

      Anyways … in some novel you can find some people who do the same they aren't even assassins or have a yandere mind. We tend to not really notice them because we are actually used to it, it's just than normaly it's a man doing those kind of teaching :).

      How many men did trash some other guy/jerk simply because they showed interest/lust/others for their girl ? Rationaly showing interest should incur less wrath than harming a loved one, and yet when some men in novel can do worse than Cai'er and it's not even bothering us (for the most part).

      If you follow Shura wrath, then you get the feeling Cai'er was actually kind in her punishement lol …

      Not that the MC actually did some punishement yet but considering the threat he make simply for scaring Ruo Ruo in a virtual world *shivers* (With this kind of bro/lover hitting on a girl has never been this dangerous lol)

  • Kawaii

    This battle is why I had to read the light novel after reading the manhwa. And I have to say… my opinion of this battle, Cai’er, and potentially the author have fallen significantly. The manhwa was not as thorough so, while this fight made no sense in it, there was still hope for the novel. But after this, I have a few questions that might be answered, but in no way will it be answered in a way that will satisfy me enough to overlook this incident. I see this as strike 1 for this novel… the novel is good enough for me to overlook this though.

    1. Why the **** do retribution knights exist if their offense is only slightly better than the offence of a guardian knight? It would make LOADS more sense to just raise the individuals specializing in offense as assassins.

    2. How could a genius retribution knight lose so easily to a genius assassin? I understand that he would lose, but this is just ridiculous. He literally couldn’t do ANYTHING to her. At this rate, how could it be said that the knights are the strongest if, at the same step, they lose out easily?

    3. Is she, as an assassin, not thorough enough with her information network to realize LHC caused nearly all of his own sustained injuries? If I read correctly, the superficial ones were all healed right after the fight ended.

    4. This did not happen yet, but I’m making a bet that LHC, being the justice-seeking honorable individual that he is supposed to be, will make a decision contrary to his character and forgive Cai’er for her villainous behavior outright. She SHOULD be heavily punished for her actions, but she will not be. I will overlook this, but as a result, I hope to GOD she does not end up with him… make her similar to the first love in coiling dragon :D.

    • Robin

      Since I guess that you are already up to date, you will probably know the answers by now. It would be a huge spoiler to answer in detail, but for all the people who ask themselves the same things: believe me, it will be solved and there is a good explanation why Cai’er is so epically strong. ^^

  • GrimBerry

    poor Yang

  • Ryan

    Nah. The sentiment was sweet and yandere-ish and all. But that was over-kill and unnecessary. I also doubt that our good ol MC would approve. It isn’t as if Yang was malicious or anything. He just won.

  • Merry Poppins

    Thanks for the chapter.
