Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 110

Chapter 110: Entering the Final Stage! (I)

Long Hao Chen grabbed Cai’er’s bamboo cane and came back to sit at the location where he was previously seated, letting her sit on the vacant place next to Li Xin, and helping Cai’er to sit there.

Lin Xin was quite curious; after all, he hadn’t known Long Hao Chen for a long time, but Li Xin appeared completely astonished.

“Lil’ bro, this person is?” Long Hao Chen started to blush, as he replied, “This is Cai’er, Sis, she’s my friend.”

Li Xin looked at him, before looking at Cai’er, before her face started to display a grotesque smile, “Hehe, so she’s your little girlfriend. Lady Cai’er, hello, I am Li Xin, Hao Chen’s sworn big sister.”

“Hello.” Cai’er said in a low voice, but kept silent after saying this.

Long Hao Chen said in a low voice to her ear, “Cai’er, you came to participate to the competition as well?”

“Mh.” Cai’er nodded in approval.

Long Hao Chen couldn’t help but immediately tell her, “But you have never told me about that before.”

Cai’er spoke back, “You also never asked for which purpose I came to Holy City.”

Long Hao Chen scratched his head. Yeah, it seemed that he had never asked her before.

Li Xin said, “Lady Cai’er, seeing your black mask, you should be from the Assassin Temple, right?”

Cai’er calmly nodded. On the side, Lin Xin was also astonished, a blind assassin? But as far as he knew, it didn’t seem very convincing. Naturally, he didn’t voice his opinion to stay polite; even though he was astonished, he still didn’t raise the question.

In the second floor of the official business hall, several black-clad people wearing black veils looked down; from their grey hair, it could be seen that they weren’t young anymore.

“So it’s this little youngster? How did he get familiar with the Saint Girl?” A black-clad elder couldn’t help but ask.

“It is unknown. From our investigation, it seems that the Saint Girl didn’t know this person in the past.”

“Didn’t know? How could someone she didn’t know get her to wound the grandson of the Yang old man from the Knight Temple? Hey, you from the falcon clan, make sure to investigate this, okay? ”

“Old Ying, don’t get angry. You should know the temperament of this Saint Girl and her perception. She doesn’t like to be monitored by us.”

“Hmpf.” Standing in the center of this hall was a black-clad elder who was also the vice hall master of the Assassin Temple, the heroic and magnificent master Ying Suifeng. No matter how he looked at him, he didn’t see Long Hao Chen favorably. He dared “use” the Saint Daughter of Samsara. It was lucky that this old object, Han Qian, was the one who was sent to complain to me. But the one to complain should be me. Someone from their Knight Temple dared “use” our Cai’er. The more Ying Suifeng thought about this, the more he became angry. His eyes couldn’t help but become filled with an intense murderous spirit. As Cai’er was currently below, joyously chatting with Long Hao Chen, the latter felt a shiver covering his whole body, and instantly, the blood in his body rose up. A strong golden light instantly bursted forth from his body, instantly spreading out, and turning out extremely condensed. Above Long Hao Chen’s head, a faint condensed golden shape of sword appeared, “Ehh?”

Ying Suifeng, completely astonished, said in a low voice, “Fifth step? Not fourth? Old Eagle, how did you conduct your investigation? ”

“Huh? But the information saying that he’s at the fourth step cannot be wrong!” The elders standing by his side had looks full of doubts, “Unless… Unless he broke through during these last days.” Ying Suifeng instantly appeared to be in a bad mood: “What should I do? Tell me what I should do? This little brat from your Knight Temple wants to ab… to abduct our Cai’er!” He almost let the two words ‘Saint Girl’ slip out.

Han Qian said, full of anger, “What ‘abduct’? They both mutually consent. It is visibly a love that rose by itself, do you understand?”

Ying Suifeng didn’t weaken the slightest bit, as he continued, still as angry, “Love that rose by itself, my ass! Our Cai’er is only 14 years-old, your Long Hao Chen is clearly an old cow eating light grass!”

Han Qian said in fury: “Your ass filled with farts, you mean! You’re the one who should be called old cow eating light grass! Our Long Hao Chen is still 14 years old this year, he’s at most older than her by a few months.”

“What?! Still 14 years-old!?”

A faint smile appeared in Ying Suifeng’s face, “A knight of the fifth step aged of 14 years-old, this is really terrible.”

Han Qian clenched his fist aggressively, because Ying Suifeng suddenly released towards Long Hao Chen some murderous intent; Han Qian was still extremely resentful towards the Assassin Temple for having wounded a youth with high status. If Long Hao Chen was the issue, the relation that had been built for so many years between the two Temples could really be destabilized to some extent. But Ying Suifeng didn’t expect what he said right afterwards, “My mistake, he’s 24 years-old.”

Han Qian immediately calmed down and together with his anger vanishing, he calmly said this. Ying Suifeng stepped forward, and with a loud laugh, he patted his shoulder, “Right, 24 years-old, I understand, I understand. Now tell me the truth, from your mouth to my ear. After all, what’s our relation? I will definitely keep that information confidential. Just like you will as well keep secrecy for us. Isn’t this a good way to keep our two Temples in a familiar relationship?”

Han Qian was at this moment in an internal struggle. Looking at Ying Suifeng with a gloomy face, he coldly snorted.

“You two old bastards are ganging up, what kind of shameful act are you preparing together?” At this very moment, an elderly voice resounded. This elder had a gold-colored gown, his doubtful face looked at these two people standing out. Han Qian lifted up his hand, scattering isolating light, “It’s nothing, Ying Suifeng is just having spasms, I am keeping an eye on him.”

Ying Suifeng conveniently nodded in agreement, seemingly in a good mood, “That’s right, I just had a spasm, but it’s already all right. Old man Lin, the drawing of lots is about to start. I heard that this youngster from your family entered these finals as well, right?”

The complexion of this old mage instantly changed, “Humpf, don’t bring up this little bastard, just thinking of him makes me angry.”

Ying Suifeng almost fell over laughing, and said, “Calm yourself down. Actually, aren’t you extremely proud of him? Isn’t this grandson of yours with great attainments in alchemy a great source of admiration within your Temple?”

The old mage opened wide his eyes, and replied, “This little bastard’s accomplishment in regard to alchemy are pretty good, but he doesn’t even know himself for which reason he wants to join a Demon Hunt Squad.”

Han Qian said, “It’s still a lot better than this little brat from my family; arrogant beyond limits, but cannot even pass the preliminaries.”

“Eh? Didn’t that youngster Han Yu break through the fifth step? Then how is it that he couldn’t even get through these preliminaries?”

The old mage looked extremely curious, but he didn’t even conceal the mocking face he wore, “Lin Chen, old fool, is it fun to laugh on other people’s misfortune? Humph!”

Han Qian suddenly became in a bad mood. Lin Chen had a good laughter, before speaking back, “How could I be laughing on other people’s misfortune? I just thought that my family’s little bastard was only a source of loss of face, but it turns out that the one from yours is also the same. This makes me really feel at ease; at least, my family’s brat got through these qualifiers.”

“You…” Han Qian cast an angry look at Lin Chen, “What’s up with you? Are you looking for a fight? Then come! I’m the closest to break through the ninth step, after having studied a forbidden spell as a mean to train. It’s still not completed yet, but I can take on you to try you out, if it’s what you want.” Lin Chen didn’t have the slightest hitch of fear.

“Okay, okay. You two, don’t start a cock fight as soon as you run into each other. Are you okay with being treated as laughstocks by the others?” A soft female voice resounded, and a middle-aged woman wearing a white gown slowly approached. Her golden hair draped over her shoulder from behind, and white embroideries covered with golden advanced mystical characters were drawn. She wasn’t young anymore, but her charm and her beautiful traits were still left. Looking at her, Han Qian and Lin Chen became sluggish. Each party groaned before shutting up. Ying Suifeng faintly smiled, nodded at this woman dressed with a white gown, and said, “Greetings, Cardinal Ruoshui.”

Anyone who could hear how she was addressed as would definitely be shocked. This white gowned woman who looked in her forties was actually a Cardinal from the Priest Temple, the eighth step of the vocation! And looking at Han Qian and Lin Chen’s behaviour, it was clear that they were giving her face. Ruishui nodded, wearing a smile, as she said, in return, “Greetings, Hall Master Ying”

With a light sigh, she went on, “About the situation you were speaking about, during the qualifiers, a little freak has also appeared in our Priest Temple.”

“Eh?” The other three people simultaneously looked down. The Six Great Temples had a competitive relation, and the Demon Hunt Selections were one of the several means through which they competed among themselves. As such, the qualifiers of the other Temples were something they didn’t keep track of. Currently, Ruoshui looked like she was having a headache. Naturally, the others were quite curious. Ruoshui sighed lightly, before saying, “During the next qualifiers, I am afraid that we’ll have to change the rules of this competition.”, At the same time as she spoke, her gaze was directed at the bald guy below.

In the official business hall, Long Hao Chen’s sudden use of his holy light attracted the attention of all the other competitors. However, this previous murderous intent had quickly disappeared, so Long Hao Chen quickly came back to his normal state. Only, at his back, some cold sweat was left. Cai’er’s look was filled with hostility; as previously, Long Hao Chen had felt that intense murderous intent. Her left hand had already been lifted up, but right after it disappeared, she quietly lowered her hand.

“What’s going on?” Li Xin suspiciously asked this question. Long Hao Chen shook his head, and answered, “Shame on me, for a split second, I thought I felt someone’s attention focused on me, filled with an intense murderous intent.”

Lin Xin’s face looked indifferent as he answered,”Never mind, it’s those people who are testing you, do you see them? On the second floor, the high uppers of the Six Great Temples are attending a ritual before the drawings of lots. What you felt definitely came from the direction of these bored old guys. After all, who would dare cause trouble in our Alliance’s office palace?”

Just at that time, an elder wearing a thin-gold-colored armor appeared on the terrace of the official business hall.

This elder had a tall and sturdy stature, and felt even sturdier than the bald youth. His grizzled short hair were erected, and despite his age, he didn’t look the slightest bit loosened. His muscles, as robust as granite, were covered by an imposing armor. This thin-golden-colored armor was embroidered with eight silver dragons, and his gaze was filled with an incredible prestige. As he appeared, his imposing presence naturally attracted the attention of all the competitors that were currently present.

  • Deady

    Thanks for the chapter ^^

  • Yuuji_K

    thanks for the chapter!

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Moissonneur66

    I really hope they find out that LHC is the scion of light. And calling him 24 is just insane, he’s 14 and you are trying to pass him off as 24? Just reveal that he is 14 years old and tell the other temples to take a hike i say

    • Nyan

      I think even 20 years-old fifth step is already hard to believe

  • plusy

    i wonder if now that he is lvl 5 maybe there are new skills available in his ring.

  • Little info: this chapter one of the several ones that were skipped in the manhua adaptation, enjoy it!

    • Ecco

      If this novel had pictures (like 10 per chap) no one would read manhua.
      BTW i heard that manhua has chapter where LHC and Cai er are in normal word it is true ?

  • “You’re the one who should be called old cow eating light grass!”

    -> is this Ying Suifeng a lolicon? mhh

    • Ecco

      100000 dolars on YES he is.

    • snowdropdreamer

      I think it was more a retort directed at him because of his overprotective jealousy over Cai’Er. He was implying that he was a pot calling the kettle black.
      Thanks for the chapter!

  • Ecco

    Thanks for chapter! yeap it was funny, i want to Ying Suifeng found out LHC innate internal spiritual energy level and who is his father, that would be fun.

    • okay.. i think really fun too if they know that surely.. hmm maybe they (ass temple and knight temple) can accept LHC x Cai’er and ship them?

      • Inbetweenaction

        I would pity any kid they would get. No matter how awesome they are, if you are the child of 2 sions you basically need to kill your first demon lord before you get to drinking age to seen for your own merits and not just whom your parents are

        • what? nooo waayyyy…. i dont want such a storry >3<

    • Waxona

      Os próximos estão melhores ainda, só vai vendo. kkkk

      • Gracias niño 🙂

        • Waxona

          Toto, that’s spanish. xD

  • Piedpiper1

    Kind of disappointed that they falsified his records to say he was 24
    I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW how inferior they are to him

    • The Dragon King

      Actually Cai’er is about equal to him and currently above him. She is 14, 5th ranked, had an innate inner spirit of 91-93(I can’t remember exactly but it was within that range) and after absorbing a legacy inherited spiritual stove it grew to a 100 and she went from scion of light to saint daughter of samsara. LCH is 14, 5th ranked, had an innate inner spirit power of 97 and has yet to absorb a powerful spiritual stove like cai’er to increase his power. Basically those two are equal with Cai’er currently ahead and LCH will get ahead later on since his was orginally higher so if he absorbs a powerful spiritual stove like cai’er his will probably be 101+

      • RabbitDog

        I don’t think spiritual stoves increase innate spirit levels. Hao Chen was born with innate level of 97. He got his stove after finding out his innate level already. So I’m pretty sure Cai Er was born with innate 100 spirit level.

        • The Dragon King

          No reread the chapter its in the daughter of samsara group. Her orginal innate spirit level was like 93 then she got the spiritual stove the previous scion of light had and I think it was passed down to scion of light in the assassin temple and it got to 100. Also you can’t compare a normal spiritual stove anyone can absorb to a passed down one that only scions of light can absorb.

          • Ratty

            “Her innate internal spiritual energy is even greater compared to his former 91st level; it was originally at the 93rd level, but after she inherited the spiritual stove of the previous Scion of Samsara, it reached the 100th level! According to legends, this level is even given another title: the one known as the Saint Daughter of Samsara, an existence that will in the future be able to challenge the first demon god!”

          • The Dragon King

            Thank you. This also proves if LCH inherits a previous scion of light spiritual stove he will probably be above 100 since his originally was 97 which surpass the current assassin daughter of samsara orginal inner spirit power.

          • thiec

            Problem is only 1 knight before LCH that obtain scion of light and dont know that this person have same legacy as assassin had.

          • stfu man

            scion of light is title from the knight temple, get your fact right, before being stubborn, i see you keep saying that in chapter before this too, wtf

          • The Dragon King

            WTF is your problem I’m not being stubborn. Plus titles have nothing to do with the innate spirit power fact is LCH orginal was 97 and Cai’er orginal was 93 till she got the spiritual stove which made it 100 so LCH will be over a hundred if he inherits one like Cai’er

          • bored

            what do you mean, title, got nothing to do , that’s what you’re confused about isn’t it, just because, the novel, doesn’t have information yet,about a title of 100 innate ability, on knight temple, you thought all of the title, human can get with 90+-, is scion of light, and then when it reach 100 saint daughter of samsara, isn’t it?, and, what’s it called if not being stubborn, if you keep talking about the same thing, over and over again,even thought, people, tell you otherwise, and it’s mostly true? , ditto

          • Liu

            lol,why are you guys,so mean, he’s just hype-ing, the novel, stop bothering him =.=

          • The Dragon King

            The fuck r u talking about? The different temples love different titles for the same thing just like countries do, it was my mistake for calling Cai’er scion of light cuz her temple has a different name for it but the titles don’t matter fact is her orginal was 93 LCH was 97 she had to absorb a powerful spiritual stove to get it to 100 and gain title of saint daughter of samsara(knights probably have a different name for this) so LCH will be high than th if he absorbs a spititual stove like cai’er

      • jayden

        The title of scion of light belongs to the knight’s temple. The assassin’s temple would be the scion of samsara.

        • The Dragon King

          No scion of light is anyone saint daughter/son of samsara is for anyone whose innate inner spirit is 100 or above. Re read the chapter group called daughter of samsara

          • jayden

            I’m saying before her innate was 100, she was a scion of samsara.

            “But the fact is that over the past 3000 years of our Assassin Temple’s history, a sole and unique person exceeded the 90th level of internal spiritual energy, obtaining a physique of a Scion of Samsara. It is equivalent to the physique of Scion of Light of your Knight Temple.”

          • The Dragon King

            Yeah I retread it my mistake

          • Argos

            Jayden is right. Each of the temples have their own name for someone with innate talents. For the Knight Temple, it was Scion of Light for an innate talent 90 and above (with no name for an innate talent above 100 yet [although if we follow the naming scheme, it would probably be Son/Daughter of Light]). For the Assassin Temple, it was the Scion of Samsara for an innate talent 90 and above, and then Daughter of Samsara for an innate talent 100 and above.

          • The Dragon King

            Okay I reread the chapter u r right my mistake and yeah I guess LCH would get son of light when he gets over 100

    • totesose

      besides, seriously?24? I’d believe it more if they said 18 or 19. Everyone obviously thought he was REALLY young…

  • totesose

    can’t wait until every1 knows his inner spiritual talent’s at 97 XD

    • The Dragon King

      Even if they hold back and just say who is dad is that would be enough

      • totesose

        anything’s fine as long as people get surprised by his awesomeness

        • Yoh!

          And then he will be target by demons and “him”…

          • totesose

            the one his father went to find? Or the one cai’er almost killed?

          • The Dragon King

            Idk about the demons but the assassins will definetly be mad that the one most favored to win dropped out cuz of him.

          • Inbetweenaction

            Difference here would be that all of the temples are allies in a defencive fight for their existence, rather than different political parties that would exterminate each other if they were given half a chance. sure, some rivalry and sabotaging might happen her for personal glory, but to the point of killing him for being a great hope for their own alliance? you better be at least as important or you are out on your arse

          • The Dragon King

            Guess you are right though demons may start killing him before he gets too strong. Since this world isn’t like combat continent where power is everything and some people will kill for it he should be okay from humans at least.

    • thiec

      Only 2 people know LHCs IISE, his father and Ye Hua. Seem this fact is very confidential and private. Maybe the fact will bring more harm than pride.

  • Whisper

    Thanks for the chapter.

    Shouldn’t it be : “Han Qian clenched his fist aggressively”
    instead of : “Han Qian clenched his first aggressively”

  • Varler

    Lol. These jealous old guys. So overprotective.

  • The Dragon King

    I what would happen if Cai’er and LCH had to fight each other. Would they both surrender or LCH as a knight say not to hold back and they fight or LCH say that but cai’er can’t harm him or he can’t harm her. Let’s hope they don’t fight but they will eventual since they are both so strong, though I guess it’s not impossible for LCH to lose but I want him to get to the finals but I don’t want him to fight Cai’er and I want Cai’er to get to the finals to but I don’t want her to fight LCH. I’m so conflicted.

    • totesose

      Cai’er will withdraw as soon as she hears of it

      • The Dragon King

        Then the assassins would kill him. The most favored person to win and bring glory to assassin temple drops out becuase of LCH and assassins will be pissed.

        But yeah I forgot that one or LCH can drop out as soon as he learns. Or they do a battle where neither one can attack or inflict harm to the other.

    • madmann135

      I say they would run out the clock by talking, making the match a draw.

      *Fan fic*
      Then they would join the same squad, get married, have children, and finally their greatest argument will be what profession their children should be… IF their children decide to specialize.

      • Andrew L

        I can imagine it now. Monstrous 5 year olds that carry around giant shields and swords while using them in assassination techniques. xD

      • hmm… assassin and knight? Rogue?? :3 *maybe

  • Carlos Jose Barva Serrato

    Cair, is scion of samsara. Scion of light is for knight.

  • Error 404

    A faint smile appeared in Ying Fengsui’s face, “A knight of the fifth step aged of 14 years-old, this is really terrible.”
    Han Qian clenched his first aggressively, because Ying Fengsui suddenly released towards Long Hao Chen some murdering intent;

    Fengsui ==> Suifeng
    his first ==> his fist

  • Nomaan Tahir

    ” Isn’t this a good mean to keep our two Temples in a familiar relationship”
    Probably should be “good way” or “good method”

    • fixed thanks

      • Nomaan Tahir

        No worries.
