Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 119

Chapter 119: Three-Headed Hao Yue (I)

Inside the eye sockets of the bone dragon, brilliant blue flames were lit. Just by its tyrannical aura, this dragon could comparably be of the ninth step. On the back of the bone dragon, there was a male clad in black armor. The figure was over 2.5 metres tall and it sat patiently at the base of the dragon’s neck. On its right hand, there was a lance that might be longer than its wielder, covered in dazzling purple.

The boundless grey sky suddenly split open, and a graceful figure appeared, its body was shrouded inside a black mantle. Although the figure was barely visible, two scarlet flames were moving on its head.

That’s right, we are late. Although we came as soon as we obtained information from that lich, in the end, we are still late. The one this sharp voice belonged to was precisely that ‘master’.

“A year ago, when we discovered Austin Griffin, he had just been reincarnated. To hide from our attempts to kill him, he used an innate ability enabling him to become extremely weak, lowering to a great extent his evolving speed. However, after such a small duration, how could his third head already be born? According to this terrifying evolution speed, I am afraid that before a hundred years pass, the calamity that occurred at that time will descend once again. Undead Abdicator Knight, do you have a method to find him?”

The Undead Abdicator Knight coldly answered, “If you, in your capacity as the Lich King, are unable to find him, how can I? Austin Griffin has already changed locations. But every time he wants to evolve, he will be bound to return to this world where he was born. We can only wait for the next opportunity now.”

The Lich King coldly spoke back, “What are the others doing? Can it be that they believe that this Austin Griffin will be as easy for us to deal with as its six previous reincarnations? His third head has already grown, he is already becoming harder and harder to deal with. We will have to convene the Undead Monarch’s General Assembly. After combining our forces, I believe that we’ll come up with a solution.”

“All right. About this matter, you and I hold the same point of view. In those days, at the moment Austin Griffin broke the seal pillars, calamity fell upon mother earth, the skies collapsed, and everything died. Relying on his strength at the heavenly step, he can at most reincarnate nine times. As long as we can destroy him this time, and persist for 2000 years, he will be left with no means to descend to this world ever again.”

The Lich King said, somewhat astonished, “I didn’t expect the cold and indifferent you to be also afraid of desolation.”

“Can it be that you’re not afraid?” The Undead Abdicator Knight snorted coldly, as the enormous bone dragon he was riding turned around. Then, a rich black-color was released all around it, and in the next instant, he disappeared completely.

The Lich King was currently in the cave where Hao Yue had previously been, coldly looking around. In the next instant, an enormous purple blister appeared there, and instantly, the whole mountain peak melted. The Lich King’s body also disappeared in the air, fading away and leaving only gray ashes behind.
The steady and determined Long Hao Chen had his body completely shaken. Unconsciously looking forward, he discovered that the purple color under his skin suddenly disappeared, leaving no traces in his body. And the aftereffects of the Bursting Spiritual Pill seemed to have completely disappeared with it, even though 12 hours were far from having passed from the time he took it.

The surrounding purple color quietly weakened, as Long Hao Chen discovered, to his astonishment, that around him was a pitch black landscape, seemingly familiar. What was this place?

“Hao Chen.” A familiar voice shouted his name, and immediately, Long Hao Chen recognized two familiar silhouettes.

“Du, du, du.” Li Xin and Cai’er, who was moving with Li Xin’s support, ran to his side from a nearby place.

Long Hao Chen immediately reacted. He had already come back to Holy City, and as he lowered his head, he could instantly see a huge fellow that was crawling under him, looking at Cai’er somewhat vigilantly.

This… This is Hao Yue?

Instantly, Long Hao Chen felt a bit listless.

What was crawling below Long Hao Chen could only be called a huge fellow. With its four thick and sturdy limbs, a height that exceeded 4 meters, it could only be categorized as a lot more robust than the former Hao Yue. If the former Hao Yue could only be called a huge lizard, then, this one could be called a huge crocodile. Furthermore, he had a third head.

That’s right, it’s precisely a third head. Aside from Little Light and Little Flame, Long Hao Chen could also see another head that was green-colored. Just like Little Light and Little Flame, his look when gazing at Long Hao Chen was brimming with affection. Seeing that Long Hao Chen was looking at them, the three huge heads immediately gathered together, rubbing against Long Hao Chen’s body.

“Hao Yue, it’s all right. Cai’er is my friend.” Long Hao Chen couldn’t fail to discern the change in Hao Yue’s expression. As he hurried to take two steps forward, he gave an ashamed look to Cai’er who was standing before him.

“Cai’er, I’m sorry. I… I missed our appointment once again.” He didn’t try to come up with an excuse. It was already late, so clearly, Cai’er and Li Xin had been waiting for his return in this place all along.

Long Hao Chen felt comfortably warm in his heart. His look was quite cordial, and these feelings of concern were undoubtedly something he longed for.

Cai’er didn’t rebuke him. Subconsciously holding one of his hands, she transmitted to his body a gentle wave of spiritual energy.

Long Hao Chen didn’t guard the slightest bit against Cai’er, as he simultaneously used his second hand to pat Hao Yue’s big head that had just come out.

Cai’er said in a neutral tone, “Fortunately, you are not wounded. However, how could the consumption of your spiritual energy be so huge, are you alright?” She couldn’t see Long Hao Chen’s current facial expression, but through observing his breath, she could determine that there wasn’t any big problem: he only suffered a few light injuries.

Long Hao Chen answered, “I’m all right. Hao Yue happened to be in a little danger, so I went to help him. Cai’er, I…”

Cai’er lightly shook her head, “It’s nothing, I don’t blame you. The fact you came back safe and sound is enough.” From her point of view, magical beast companions were only beings coming from some random mountain, so in regard to the kind of enemy Long Hao Chen could have run across when being summoned, she didn’t think too much.

But unexpectedly, Li Xin was on the contrary full of doubts, “Hao Chen, is this Hao Yue? How could he become so huge, wah, and there’s another head. What a surprise!”

Long Hao Chen made a silent gesture directed at her,saying in a low voice, “Hao Yue has most likely evolved. Let’s go, it’s already so late, we should go back first before talking about this.”

Long Hao Chen was safe and well, and Cai’er was finally relieved. Li Xin and Long Hao Chen went to see her off before taking Hao Yue to return to their hotel.

The bedroom wasn’t too big, so as soon as Hao Yue, with his tremendously bigger body, crawled in the room, it appeared a lot smaller; but whatever he was told, he was unwilling to sleep outside. The third big head was only nagging Long Hao Chen, his eyes full of appreciation and affection. It was just like a child who was getting close to his own father.

“Okay, okay. Isn’t it natural that I went to your rescue when you faced some dangers? There’s no need for you to be so reserved.” Long Hao Chen gently caressed Hao Yue’s third head, and had a smile on his face.

Despite the fact that he had faced the lich and his skeleton army in the previous fight, and his heart was beating a lot faster all along and until now, he didn’t regret anything in the slightest. He was a Guardian Knight, Hao Yue was a dear person to him, so he naturally had to protect him well.

Long Hao Chen was still sometimes carefully watching Hao Yue’s appearance after his evolution.

It could be said that Hao Yue’s whole body had evolved. His body was two times taller, and had become a lot sturdier. His body only, when sitting straight, was already nearly 1.5 meters tall, with his four robusts limbs, his sharp claws, raising his three huge heads, he looked rather impressive.

The scales covering his body had also evolved. Each of them appeared oval, but on them, there was another bulge, covering these scales that appeared thick and firm. He was still completely black, but under the illumination from the external world, a faint trace of purple color could be discerned. On his back, the protruding bone already had a big volume, and appeared to make him look even larger.

The most evident change on Hao Yue was in his three heads. Clearly, on the two sides of his heads appeared some other bulges that seemed connected to each other. However, these bulges weren’t too distinct, but their eyes changed a lot, the side of their mouth appeared rounder and sharper than in the past. More importantly, his heads had become at least twice as large.

Because of the bonds of the blood contract between them, Long Hao Chen could clearly feel that Hao Yue was a lot more powerful than in the past. If Long Hao Chen were to be up against him, even with his current force, he was afraid that he wouldn’t necessarily win. He had clearly entered the boundary of the sixth step as a magical beast!

Wasn’t this kind of evolution too frightening? From the time of Long Hao Chen’s contract with Hao Yue to now, an entire year had not passed yet. His first evolution was because of Long Hao Chen’s blood and his second evolution was something he provoked himself. It should have a relation with the stone orb he had eaten.

This wasn’t the crucial point. The crucial point was that every time Hao Yue evolved, his strength would grow substantially. Growing a second head made him turn into a beast of the fourth step from the second step, and this third head that had now appeared had made him change from the fourth step to the sixth step. No matter if it was from his father or his teacher, Long Hao Chen had never heard of a kind of magical beast that could evolve in such a way, and so rapidly.

In addition, Long Hao Chen found out to his astonishment that near his neck, next to the green-looking neck, there was, as before, another bulge. From the other side, at Little Fire’s side there was also another bulge. In other words, after this evolution, two bulges had grown on the side of his necks. Could it be that he would sprout out two other heads? If it was the case, what level would he reach at that moment?

In regard to Hao Yue, Long Hao Chen was currently growing more and more curious.

Hao Yue could feel Long Hao Chen’s thoughts, and stared at him with his three heads. Little Light was the first, as he directly stuck out his tongue to lick his face, giving Long Hao Chen a face-washing.

“Haha, stop licking me! It tickles!” Little Flame and the newly born head immediately joined him, and the three heads playfully assaulted Long Hao Chen.

  • Kari

    thank u toto!! 🙂

  • Lutre

    Thanks for the chapter 😉

  • lbartolo

    Thanks for the chapter.
    Honestly I can’t see this guy as a Demon God at all.
    Now, somebody said there was an image of Hao Hue with three heads, where do I find it?

    • EclipseK

      Just input the name of this novel and the character you want to see in Google images.

  • Moridain

    I hope that Hao Yue stays kind and loyal. He comes off as too playful and kind to be a dark force of evil and destruction.
    My current guess is that while he did effectively destroy that world, he did so in retaliation or while protecting himself from those either fearing or wanting to use his powers.

    • Specter

      Hmm… did you forget the world he came from, Hao Yue came from a world filled with Lichs and Skeletal Dragons, even if he destroyed such a world why should anyone else care.

      • plusy

        didnt you read what the lich said? they were turned undead after he destroyed their world. it means that they were humans or some other humanoid race.

      • Moridain

        What Plusy said.
        Plus, they still seem to have a culture and civilization, as well as clearly having sapience.
        That makes them people, regardless.

        • demonrcool

          evil people who deserve to die … no exceptions

          • Sarlisark

            Besides it is one of the most complicated philsophical and morale questions, whether the murdering of a tyranor any evil person ca be considered righteous. which is the reason that many developed countries do not have blood-judication( eg. cutting of arms or killing)

          • Moridain

            Define Evil.
            Being undead against your will isn’t evil in and of itself. Seeking the destruction of the being who ripped your world apart isn’t either.

          • demonrcool

            I am saying they need to die cause the undead are trying to HY because of something that he was forced to do in a past life because of them.

    • Muhbreaker

      but Hao Yue and LHC have a blood contract:
      When Hao Yue dies=> LHC will die too , so i dont think that Hao yue will be dumb enough to risk his and LHC life

      • Nomaan Tahir

        No, if Hao Yue dies LHC won’t die that was made clear.

        • Azuka

          Yeah, it’s actually reversed. If LHC dies, then HY dies as well. (Which we all pray will never happen).

          • Jonathan Hurd

            Lets be honest with ourselves if LHC dies then the world that let that happen deserves to become what Hao Yue’s world is right now.

  • Muhbreaker

    what element has the third head? (little green)

    • lbartolo

      Honestly the elements described as green are either wind or wood (It’s considered an element in Eastern Culture I believe (at least thats what I saw in Brave 10)). My bet is in wood

      • plusy

        or earth. he got darkness as his first element, light from our mc and now its either earth or wind.

        • yfful

          what are you talking about? his first element is fire.

          • Rong

            it was converted to Fire after the ritual, it was originally darkness

          • Dream

            It was originally fire. It was his body that had dark element not the 1st head.

          • Germ

            no, the dark head was converted to light. also, the dark head was the first one since here it clearly says that the head in the middle is light.
            dunno why it is fire in the image

        • Fnors

          Earth would be a yellow/brown color, no? At least if we consider that there are 9 elements, since green is (generally) for wood/wind/nature/life.

      • Azuka

        It’s wind 😛 You just lost your bet.

        • lbartolo

          DAmn. Just like in multiple choices exams in a 50-50 I will always get the wrong option. I’m cursed TT-TT

          • It is on the preview in the page of the chapter 120, by the way, so it’s not completely a spoiler :).

          • lbartolo

            I never read the preview so the chapter feels longer. Today that bit me in the rear TT-TT

      • Dicky

        If wood is ever an element, I hope that the translator would graciously use “Little Wood” as the head’s name if that’s an option.

    • NewReader

      It’s wind.

  • kensche heiashi

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

  • IAmIs

    cute 😀

  • Vedastra

    Thx for the chapter

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • plusy

    lol this lich king is a wuss. i heard that lich kings control an immeasurable amount of undead, but he was just burned to ashes. DISAPPOINTED! i guess there can only be one true lich king.

    • Toxicparasite

      Arthas would have won >_>

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter! Aww… I love the moments between LHC and Hao Yue. I want to know what elements he can control now, oh and, how many steps can a magical beast have? If HY jumps two steps when evolving, and the limit is ten steps, would HY only get five evolutions?

    • Kurowind

      as Hao Yue Conveyed each additional evolve will get harder, likely to be only a single level ups and possibly 2 heads per evolve to follow so maybe 3 more times he evolves… (5 heads) -> (7 heads) -> (9 heads) level wise maybe mid 7, high 8 then 10

    • Azuka

      Oh and is HY aware that he’s Austin Griffins or did I just skim through that part?

  • demonrcool

    Thanks and more please i want to know what happens next.

  • Lalit Mane

    well thanks for chapter ……………

  • Hairy Ferengi

    I wonder what the third head’s name will be.

    • Muhbreaker

      But it was quite simple (little greens is green => LHC calls him Little green)

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Majk

    Ok so I have a theory that goes like this: Since Hao Yue destroyed that world in a previous life could he restore it now? By restore I mean fill that world that was mostly conusmed by Austin Griffins darkness elemnet (and the others but mostly darkness) with Hao Yes light element. Clearly the second head is the storngest one (basad on the amound of darkness filing that world) but right now it is not of the dark element but insted it was changed into light by LHC and lets all renember that since this is LHCs light elemnt it is extremly pure so it could consume most of the dark elemnt on that planet when Yue gets his last head and will be at full power (it would kill all the liches but maybe they wouldent mind :P)

    • justhere

      right but wouldnt that still end up destroying the other world since the only people who survived are ones with darkness elements?

      • Majk

        I dont htink that it would destroy the wrold but rather let it be reborn. As for the people we dont really know if the only survavors are filled with darkness elemnts there might be small groups that survived. Accually form what I understand they were changed into darkness elemnts when their world was destroyed so they might simply change back

        • Jonathan Hurd

          From what the Litch said at one point, it seems like everyone with enough power escaped their world probably using dimensional magic and the rest died or adapted. So maybe the world can be cleansed. I do personally keep wondering what more destruction that world could have happen to it since there doesn’t seem to be anything left but the dark element.

    • HeatGel

      I’m thinking optimistically and think that Hao Yue didnt’ destroy his previous world. Rather circumstances happened that caused pillars to be destroyed and hao yue is framed as it ends up changing in a way that benefits it. though i hope that as hao yue evolves more he gets to be more op and maybe save his world by absorbing all the dark element by leveling to the last step. though i may be wrong and hao yue is an awesome evil reptile

  • lbartolo

    Freaking awesome. Was the guy facing that able to hold is bladder? xD

    • Kurowind

      i just wonder what the scene will be when HY gets Wings…. o.O….!?!

    • Sarlisark

      especially considering that everyone already knows that LHC is fifth step and freaking strong. there enemies are like, he could defeat me alone without a problem, but now he has this large three headed magic beast that’s as intelligent as any person and is a mage for 3 different elements.
      Like okay he is an enemy who has got his own battleteam in a one vs one match

      • Kurowind

        oh I just had this thought… that summoner girl will probably be super jealous of his mount…. lol

      • Falinmer

        Don’t forget, each head can think independently as well, so they’ve got parallel processing for in a fight too.

  • Mario Mägi

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • totesose

    It seems like LHC is gonna be saving Hao Yue’s world as well, considering he’ll be visiting his world often now.
    Also, I wonder what the elements of the 9 heads will be?
    – Fire
    – Light
    – Dark
    – Wind/Air
    – Earth
    – Water
    – Ice(?)
    – Gravity(?)
    – Electricity(?)

    • Muhbreaker

      Ice, Gravity and Electricity are just combinations of the elements
      Ice: Water and WInd/Air ; Gravity: Just throw a huge ball at the enemy and he will fall : Electricity: Fire,Water and maybe WInd/AIr

      • totesose

        lol the gravity thing, but yeah, if he pushes with a force of air upward/downward it’ll be like a gravity effect I guess…

      • Sarlisark

        Just saying i agree with ice and elecrtricity since fist is just cooled down water and later is just a combination of water and ice particles in air which are oving against each other, so both is actually just water and wind. Gravity is more than just throwing rocks or pushing someone upward, imagine another person your pulling up with a rope, does the gravity disappear because you pull no, but you neutralize its effect on the other person.
        Gravity as magic could do many things indirect strenthgening or weakening gravity can unbalance any enemy who is heavier than a mouse, so yeah gravity magic would be awesome and could be used to neutralize all magic, since gravity can influence all phenomena including time.

      • Fatball

        Actualy, if I remember right lightning is the fenomen that hapen when a lot of metal element is in the air.hBut i could be wrong I don’t even remember wich 5 elements there are in chinese culture(fire,wind,water,wood and metal/gold maybe?)

    • Faust

      I don’t think it’ll be a dark head because hao Chen alrdy changed the dark attribute heD to light plus they kill monsters with dark attributes on his world

      • Fnors

        From the preview, it seems to be a “wind” head. He can still get a Dark attribute head later on.
        I suppose that the second head should have been darkness, since his world is mainly Fire and Darkness. The light head should probably be one of the later heads to appear, but it must have been switched due to LHC’s blood.

        Also, since we have the “wind” element out there, it supports a list of:
        Light, Dark, Fire, Earth, Wind, Water, Electricity/Metal.
        The 8th should be Ice, since in chapter 32, all the spells Lin Jia Lu used are ice elemental spells. Although Water has yet to be confirmed, I doubt there would be an Ice element and no Water element.

        The last element could be anything. It might even be a Neutral element, for all we know.

    • Christian Rawley

      I don’t think Hao Yue will get nine Heads
      let’s think about it: there are nine steps of Magical beasts and Hao Yue got three heads and is at the sixth step. every head he gets will push him two steps. If we think about how Austin Griffin (Hao Yue’s former self?) ravaged this world, he may be a tenth step beast? because every step even the lowest rank in that step is several times stronger than the highest rank of the lower step.
      So I think he will get five heads, but that would mean he won’t get the Chinese five elements : wood, fire, earth, metal, water

      • Unchained Rage

        I wouldn’t count having 9 heads impossible yet. Remember after this evolution, Hao Yue got 2 bulges instead of 1, so it’s more likely that the next evolution will have 2 more heads. Moreover, it’s possible that his next evolution would even be 3 or 4 more instead of 2.

        • Red_Autumn

          I wouldn’t go that far just yet, because we don’t know if he will get those two heads simultaneously at the next evo, but once he does reach is max potential, I think his heads will have all the elements which doesn’t say much in this light novel
          But I do believe that ice is an possibility and possibly earth which are other elements mentioned in the novel but this is all speculation and guessing though so just wait and see

      • madmann135

        I would be careful in believing the undead creature’s story. Their main grief from what they said is Austin Griffin’s ability to rapidly evolve.
        For all we know they could have destroyed their own world and Austin Griffin could be the evil to good / undead to living / etc to etc reset.
        Being afraid of his ability to rapidly evolve does raise an interesting question.
        Are they afraid of Austin Griffin’s power or how he intends to use it?

      • totesose

        Well, considering that every time he evolved, the bulges turned to new heads, I’m assuming he’ll be getting 2 new heads every time he evolves to a new step now. 9 heads cuz when HY called LHC over, the 9-line contract’s 3rd line was shining.

      • unknown

        Austin Griffin actualy the god of destruction 9 head monster he will destroy every thing include human,demon,undead and plant.

    • Moridain

      My guesses are:

      Note that Gravity is usually considered to be part of Earth, Ice is generally an aspec of Water and Lightning is either Fire, Wind or both.

      I could be way off though. 😀

    • unknown

      the last head actualy a god head . the head of destruction.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • madmann135

    Hao Yue is a most fearsome beast, his rein of terror is so great demons cower in his prescience, his first act of evil is… playfully licking his brother. …
    Tremble in the presence of Hao Yue!

    • Illunis


      How cruel!

  • madmann135

    Little Hao Yue is growing up so quickly these days. First he was adorable, then he was badass adorable, now he is badass cute… Is me thinking such a creature as cute is strange?

  • Majk

    I hope that in the fututre wehn someone hurts LHC it will be Hao Yue who will fight them insted of Cai’er since personally after reading everything until now I think that he would be more justified in it than she

  • Piedpiper1

    Here we go people this is what he looks like
    Ingnore my tabs

    • Fnors

      Hahaha. “How to wreck a stadium”, by LHC.and Hao Yue.

    • Germ

      there is actually an error in this image, it was clearly said in the chapter that the head in the middle is light, while fire and wind are on the sides.

      • Piedpiper1

        It’s from the manhua

        • Rintaro Usagi

          Can u link the source of that pic ….plzzz

          • Hurges

            the translated one or the raw one?

        • Red_Autumn

          You are right Piedpiper b/c this is him prior to the evolution, and I’ve also read all the chapters of the manga

          • Germ

            edit: ops i misunderstood.
            still strange that in the manga the heads are switching places between chapters. the author probably didn’t pay attention

          • Red_Autumn

            Really?? I haven’t paid much attention since Hao Yue doesn’t appear much in the manga but possibly haha

      • Piedpiper1

        And I can’t find in this chapter where it says what position his heads are

        • Germ

          In addition, Long Hao Chen found out to his astonishment that near his neck, next to the green-looking neck, there was, as before, another bulge. From the other side, at Little Fire’s side there was also another bulge.

          straight from THIS chapter of the novel

    • Illunis

      Thanks. That is one kick-ass image.

    • unknown

      where did you read this raw manhwa ?

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Linny6511

    This story is so interesting!! Thank you so much!

  • Gerald Mangru

    he’s gonna look like a hydra

  • Moissonneur66

    I can feel the claims of unfair coming along. Not only is he a 5th step he also has a multi headed dragon.

  • Red_Autumn

    Hao Yue looks so awesome and badass, he is going to destroy lives haha, but a huge change from when Hao Yue was first summoned till now,
    Goo Hao Brothers!!!

  • thiec

    Now, we know why Hao Yue dont wanna back to his place like others mount did and only shown up if their master call for it. Hao Yue back to his realm mean danger or death.

    Hmmm rather than a hydra since he will end up having 9 heads each one with it’s own attribute I was thinking something more along the lines of Orochi from the game Ookami, minus 1 head lol

  • KenKen

    Haha I guess we gonna have some fun at guessing how many heads would Hao Yue end up having.
