Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 124


Chapter 124: So strong Cai’er (II)

Actually, the current Sima Xian looked similar to a berserker using the light attribute. In the earlier stages, priests were supposed to have very limited offensive capabilities. For sure, his physical strength was extremely high, but how could he contend against an ultra-genius of the type that doesn’t even appear once every 1000 years, the Saint Daughter of Samsara?

Lin Xin was staring blankly at Cai’er, who was going back to her lounge, with his eyes focused on her. His current opinion of Cai’er was completely different. In short, she had simply become a great favorite he had to cling to… Naturally, it was absolutely not in “that” meaning, he was only yearning for trying to get in her good graces, he didn’t have any other kind of ideas. This girl who was previously together with Long Hao Chen, a delicate-looking young lady who had in addition lost her sight was actually powerful to such a frightening level. Sima Xian had learned and experienced her fighting strength today with his own body.

Too strong, it was simply too strong. Who else could contend against such a powerhouse during these Demon Hunt Selections?

Li Xin’s shock was no less than Lin Xin’s. What Lin Xin didn’t expect, neither did she expect it. Furthermore, during her match against her on the previous day, Cai’er had voluntarily conceded. Even if she had Rose, could she really win against her? Lil’ bro! Where did you get yourself a little lady as abnormal as you!?

In the past, Li Xin was always thinking that Long Hao Chen was the greatest genius that could exist in this world, but this little lady before her eyes looked no older than him! She was also already at the fifth step of cultivation. Having seen how easily and skillfully she coped with Sima Xian with such a calm demeanor, she was clearly far from having gone all out. If she could really become her little brother’s girlfriend, how great would that be.

“Big sister, I am leaving first.” Cai’er approached Li Xin by the side, and said this in a low voice.

Li Xin revealed a faint smile, and asked, “You’re going to wait for him?”

“Yeah.”

Li Xin said with a smile, “Quickly go. Seeing that you’re so strong, it looks like there is no need for me to worry about your safety.”

“Du, du, du.” Under the gaze of all the competitors, Cai’er quietly left.

For the following days, the other matches of Long Hao Chen’s could be said to have gone as smoothly as a breeze of wind; he didn’t encounter any complications. It was to the extent that he didn’t even need Hao Yue to appear on stage. In addition, he had obtained five victories from people who surrendered from the start of the match. When drawing him as their opponent, the two priests directly surrendered; they had clearly seen how Long Hao Chen destroyed the Earth Giant; how could they possibly restrain this level of attack power? And the last three of these victories were contributions from those other assassins.

During this competition in groups, everyone had nine matches. So far Long Hao Chen only needed seven wins to be sure to be qualified. On the last two days, he was up against the two strange ladies of this group, Wang Yuanyuan and Chen Ying’er.

In this group, Long Hao Chen and Huang Yi were the ones who displayed the most astonishing strength, but the ones who attracted the most attention weren’t them, it was this young lady summoner, Chen Ying’er.

After having been defeated three times in a row, she emerged victorious three times in a row. Her fighting method was simple, it was to rely on the Creature Summoning Gate. When up against Long Hao Chen, this young lady summoned a mount that she herself could basically not recognize at all. And when she ended up against Huang Yi, what outrageously came out from her Creature Summoning Gate was a huge green dragon at the eighth step that intimidated Huang Yi to such an extent that he directly conceded. Since then, this lady became the most unpredictable element of the third group. Try to ask, who among these youngsters could possibly want to measure himself against a magical beast of the eighth step?

Wang Yuanyuan’s appearance was also eye-catching; just like Long Hao Chen, she had gotten herself seven victories. However, until this day, the ones she hadn’t run against were the toughest opponents, Long Hao Chen and Huang Yi. At the very end, she had to compete against both of them.

As a result, after Long Hao Chen had gotten himself one of the places, the second place was going to be settled in the match between Huang Yi and Wang Yuanyuan. At the time of this match, Huang Yi had already lost two matches, but had the great occasion to catch up with Wang Yuanyuan and possibly aim for a seventh victory. This way, as long as Long Hao Chen could beat her, in concerns to both sides’ equal number of victories and defeat, he could possibly surpass his opponent in rank and stay in the competition, together with Long Hao Chen.

The marvel of this third group was undoubtedly this random summoner. And there was an even more marvellous guy in the second group, it was Lin Xin.

Among the seven matches he was in, Lin Xin ended six of them in a row. Exactly, except from one he lost against the bald priest Sima Xian because of the matter of time, the six following matches of the competition all ended in a draw. It was because even though he couldn’t attack, there was no one who could break through his defense. It was the same even for Li Xin who possessed her Rose Unicorn. Unfortunately for him, his match of the eighth day was about to begin, and on this day, his opponent was precisely Cai’er.

Within the second group, Cai’er was without equal. Her seven matches had ended with six victories and a defeat against Li Xin, who by relying on her Rose Unicorn also ended with good results with five victories, one draw and one defeat. Her defeat was against a summoner from the Spiritual Temple. However, on the next day, when this summoner ran up against Cai’er as his opponent, he was directly heavily wounded by her, leading to a lot of complications in the rear. For this reason, the Spiritual Temple raised a complaint against the Assassin Temple. However, was this really of use?

The bald priest Sima Xian was the third ranked of this group. His seven matches had ended with five victories and two defeats, the second defeat occurring when he fought Li Xin. The Rose Unicorn’s dominance was really too great, further adding the fact Li Xin was herself a Retribution Knight. In addition, after evolving, the Rose Unicorn had gotten herself a lot of combat experience, making their coordination better and better.

The last two matches of Cai’er within this group were up against Lin Xin, the mage who couldn’t attack, and a warrior. Basically, until now, Li Xin and her mount overwhelmed the others in this competition.

Li Xin clearly knew that if not for Cai’er, she could never have succeeded in this group, and to this young lady, who was helping her out of affection and not out of reason, she took more and more of a liking.

In the past five days, Long Hao Chen didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary. With Cai’er, he did nothing more than accompanying her back everyday. After all, they were still too young, and holding hands with each other was already, for them, a great source of happiness. They didn’t chat a lot, but already felt extremely familiar with each other.

Li Xin already told Long Hao Chen the fact she was far from being as strong as Cai’er and let this couple manage that among themselves; it would be great if he could develop their relationship.

Long Hao Chen never asked Cai’er about the reason why she conceded, because on the first day of the competition, when Cai’er conceded out of consideration for Li Xin, it reinforced Long Hao Chen’s first impression of Cai’er as a blind girl, which implied in his mind, that her fighting capabilities couldn’t be too good. At that moment, his sentiment of pity had been further reinforced.

The group entered the eighth day of competition.

Bright morning.

As she took her breakfast, Li Xin made fun of Long Hao Chen, “Lil’ bro, before you send Cai’er back home every day, where do you bring her to have fun?”

Ye Hua who was eating together with them also looked at Long Hao Chen. Naturally, Li Xin wouldn’t have kept the fact that Long Hao Chen was familiar with Cai’er hidden, and also told him about Cai’er’s fighting prowesses. Naturally, Ye Hua wouldn’t be against the relation between his treasured disciple and this future star of the Assassin Temple. A blind girl, but furthermore and against all expectations, an extremely strong assassin! This was in itself an extremely rare sight. Although in the beginning, he believed that it was an extremely bad thing for Long Hao Chen to have gotten a girlfriend so early, the revelation he had been given on the previous day completely changed his mind.

“Have fun? I am just sending her back home and that’s all.” was Long Hao Chen’s reply.

Li Xin immediately opened wide her eyes, “It cannot be, lil’ bro. So that’s what you call a date with a girl? It’s too unromantic! Even if you are nervous because of the ongoing competition, it’s not a reason for you not to take her to have fun or invite her for a meal, is it? Discuss, discuss and get familiar with her family’s circumstances and this kind of stuff.”

“Invite her for a meal?” Long Hao Chen blanked out, “But I don’t have any money!”

He had indeed no money, all the money he had gotten without exception was used on Hao Yue’s stomach. After Hao Yue evolved, he ate even more. This fellow was really a wallet-emptier.

Li Xin patted his forehead, and said in a calm voice, “You foolish lil’ bro, if you don’t have money, can’t you ask your sister for some? So silly. Here.” As she spoke, a sack of gold coins was taken out from her bosom and thrown at Long Hao Chen.

“Sis, I cannot receive your money.” Long Hao Chen hurriedly threw this coin sack back at her.

Li Xin opened wide her eyes, “What on earth are you doing? Are you looking for a beating? Quickly take it back, isn’t it natural for a little brother to spend his big sister’s money? And from the beginning, I have been regarding you like a little brother, could it be that you don’t regard me as a dear big sister? If you dare return this, big sis will be extremely angry, and will ignore you in the future.”

“I…” At that moment, Long Hao Chen didn’t know what he should reply to her.

Ye Hua said, “Accept it. Xin’er is also doing this for your sake. That lady Cai’er, you should treat her better. If you have the occasion, during the group selection for the demon hunt squads, you should do your utmost to be together with her.” Yesterday, a very mysterious old dude came to find Ye Hua, to speak to him privately for an entire hour. After this old dude left, Ye Hua was immersed in his thoughts for a long time, carrying a feeling of being torn between laughter and tears. It was because it was the higher-ups of the Knight Temple who came to find him, and their objective was unexpectedly to tell him that he had to do his utmost to play matchmaker between Long Hao Chen and Cai’er. Although he wasn’t really clear, this was the message he was conveyed. It could only mean that Cai’er was of extremely unusual importance to the Assassin Temple and this way, both of them could advance together. However, considering Ye Hua’s temper, he naturally couldn’t act as a matchmaker for his disciple for real. Today, this single sentence was also a hinted expression of his approval of Long Hao Chen and Cai’er being together.

After taking the gold coins, Long Hao Chen felt very ashamed. That’s right! I have already known Cai’er for so long, but I have never invited her out to eat.

Mage Stadium, field of the second group.

According to the drawing of lots, today, the first match would oppose Cai’er to Lin Xin, her astonished opponent.

“Cai’er against Lin Xin, both parties may appear on stage.” The referee yelled out loudly from within the stadium.

Cai’er slowly stood straight, and just when she was about to go, Lin Xin who had already stood up, said aloud, “I concede, I concede!”

Within this second group, this was the first time a match was conceded before neither of both parties entered on stage.

Lin Xin revealed a faint smile in Cai’er’s direction. He knew that Cai’er couldn’t see, but still waved his hand. To him, regardless of what he did, there was no way he could enter the top 16. Since it was the case, he might as well act like a good person and give Cai’er a favor. More importantly, he didn’t believe that he could possibly block Cai’er’s attacks.


  • Kurt

    Thank you!

  • Somerandomdude

    Wait… Are you saying the bald priest is around the age of the MC and Cai’er?

    • Somerandomdude

      ah sorry wrong post… it should be at chap 123

    • Nah, he’s the one who thinks that if I remember well. He cannot expect them to be 20- years-old, especially considering how talented they are.

      • Somerandomdude

        Here’s the written sentence in the previous chapter
        “This combat had a large influence on Sima Xian, because it was the first time that he was left completely overwhelmed and unable to strike when facing an opponent with a similar age as his.”
        that was the last paragraph of chapter 123 if you ever ask.

        • He’s in his twenties most likely(?), Cai’er is 14.

          We knew all of this beforehand anyway, you should interpret the sentence as ‘never before had he been overwhelmed by someone in his age range’, rather than ‘they have similar age’.

        • Luke Confidential

          Lets not forget the heads of the Knight Temple figure they can pass LHC off as a youthful 18 year old.

          I’m guessing that- much like this Author’s other work Douluo Dalu- increasing Spiritual Power also has a physical maturing effect on the body.

          [This would also help to explain why Cai-Er is so ‘developed’ already at 14 in the Manhua, she’s fully grown up physically.]

  • TLODAN

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • iamsleepless

    thanks for the chapter 🙂

  • kensche heiashi

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

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Varler

    I’m really looking forward to the demon hunting team made up of all these freak characters.
    A blind assassin, a priest that can’t heal, a warrior with no weapon, a mage that can’t attack, a summoner that is a lottery machine, and good ol’ Long Hao Chen. This’ll be interesting.

    • Cendana Putra

      Dont forget the badass three head hydra. Lol

    • Andrew L

      You forgot the priest that can’t heal.

      I doubt Cai’er is going to remain blind for the whole series, couldn’t she not talk or something at the beginning? This is probably intense assassin training to raise all 5 senses.

      • RyokoZero

        I’m thinking the same thing. I don’t understand why she couldn’t talk at the beginning… maybe to teach her communicate with now words. OR teach you how to silent?

        • She couldn’t talk for the same reason she is blind now… it probably has to do with her power/whatever the dagger is that went into her head in that one chapter.

    • jacbopaige

      You’re forgetting Hua Yan (I think that was his name) who will be coming along to act as an extra shield for LHC. Which will make three people with shields and two mages whose defenses are top notch. Whatever puts this group in danger would likely slaughter anyone else at the same rank without effort 😉

      • RyokoZero

        Yes they will. All odd balls but OP in that sense.

    • RyokoZero

      Um the warrior without a weapon uses her shield as an axe. A warrior with shield/axe.

    • Luigi De Jesus

      YEAH! It sounds awesome!!!!

  • Cendana Putra

    Thank you very much 🙂 for this chapter

  • joshua

    thanks in advance for the double release

  • jacbopaige

    I really like Lin Xin 😉

    I wonder what they’ll do if both of them are in the top three? I don’t think they can choose other members of the top three to be in their teams. Will Cai’er concede again to drop into a lower ranking so that he can choose her?

    • Felix Schlüter

      LHC agreed earlier that he would choose Lin Xin, when he get in the top 3

      • jacbopaige

        The top 3 choose a team, one from each temple, not just a single individual. Choosing Lin Xin has nothing to do with choosing Cai’Er

        • Sarlisark

          nope ” The top three competitors can each select a teammate to be grouped with to precede the others during the next Demon Hunt roulette.” just one teammate and the roulette is drawing lots to decide who enters which team

    • Sarlisark

      well why should the top three not be able to choose each other as long as it fits together with the rule “one person per temple”.
      The only Problem could be if the result would be 2 Persons of a temple.

      • jacbopaige

        Well, mainly because it would create a question about who should then form the third team or even the second and third teams if all three came from different temples and decided to choose each other (and really, why wouldn’t they?).

        • Sarlisark

          well at the beginning there are 6 teams formed so of course by drawing lots, and anyway they can only choose one person for their team not the whole team, To why they would not do that, Personal dislike, unfitting way of fighting, promises to toher people or wishes to be in a team with somebody else they like

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • Andrez-ssi

    Thanks for the chapter!
    I can’t stop laughing at the thought of the Asura instructor being a matchmaker xD

  • lordcattank

    big bro don’t have enough drugs to avoid a ass beating . thanks for the chapter

  • Vern

    “a very mysterious old dude” Hahaha
    Thanks for the chapter!

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Dicky

    Wait. We don’t get to see the match between LHC and the summoner? We just get to know that she summoned some unrecognizable mount?

    Oh, Cai’er, you don’t have to avenge even LHC’s relatives’ losses! You’re already in his heart~

  • JBJHova

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • Leticia

    The higher-ups of the six temples are hilarious. Especially of the knight and assassin temple, not to forget Lin Xin’s grandfather.

  • yotsuba tatsuya

    Thanks a lot to sponsors Joshua S, isaac c, cristiano c, Johnathan M! & Totobro !!!

  • wordkillme

    hiks hiks … no teaser today T_T rolling on the floor

    • yea… maybe totok is decided to not put tease.. i mean teaser for next chap >3<
      btw thanks for the chap tok

  • Illunis

    The world is so cruel… conspiring to put these two star-crossed lovers together.

    Wait, no, that’s a good thing! Shouldn’t romance be more difficult? That’s what Shakespeare taught me…

    • Anonymous

      Isn’t it making romance easier? The knight temple wants the two to have a relationship…which goes along with Long Hao Chen and Cai’er’s desires.

      • Illunis

        Yes, I was being facetious. :I

    • Ruzi

      Well Assassin temple doesn’t know about Hao Chen’s real strength, so I’m pretty sure in future Hao Chen will face some problems because of that.

  • Pavel

    Thanks.

  • Luigi De Jesus

    SO great reading this is so fun i wonder just how OP Cai’er will be when the assasin temple unseals her vision and she summons her mount??……………………. ^_^

    • Sarlisark

      ähm Assasins do not have mounts, as far as the story is concerned.(maybe later on but not yet) Only Knights have mounts, strong physical and magical powers, permission to take retainers on demon hunts. Did i forget sth?

      • Luigi De Jesus

        But didn’t it say when she was getting revenge for HAO CHEN that the guy who beat Hao Chen was afraid she would summon her mount???

        • Sarlisark

          what i reread no, he just said sth. like if he could get outside he could summon his mount and then they could fight equal, he wannted to summon a mount to even scales if she also could do that there would not be any reason. however since i do not no what happens later on, assasins may get mounts later on like at 6th r 7th step,

          • Kirigaya Kazuto

            No they get weapons instead of mounts. Cai’er got a dagger you forgot?

          • Luigi De Jesus

            i see thanks

        • Norman Pestaño

          Nope there’s nothing like that… pls re read sir

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • “That’s right! I have already known Cai’er for so long, but I have never invited her out to eat.”

    yeah so long… from 7 years ago i think? lol

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Moissonneur66

    So when Cai’er gets her eyes back how is our man LHC going to react? I had eyes but i did not see. Chinese novels love saying that line and it fits perfectly here. But seriously if the Assassin Temple knew that LHC was the scion of light they would probably drug Cai’er and LHC then throw them in a room together.

    • BurningAlpha

      like what Su Hen did to Chu Feng and Su Rou :>

    • The Dragon King

      Even they aren’t that evil nor that it would matter much. Chances are that before they turn 21 they would have done the deed at least once due to their love. However, hypothetically speaking if that did happen those two wouldn’t have any complaints though I think the temples would wait until they are at least 16

  • Linny6511

    Wow this is super cute and ironic lolol so glad nobodies trying to keep the two love birds apart! Thank you so much for the chapter!!! 😀

  • Frun Blumglin

    Thanks for the chapter!!!~

  • The Dragon King

    Well it seems like Lin Xin is a genius for knowing he had no chance. Now he better keep being a genius and never harm or beat (even in a fair and square fight) LCH or anyone close to LCH.

    • Anonymous

      he can’t atk dude ^^

      • The Dragon King

        Technically anyone can attack he just can’t use/cast offensive spells, but he could take one of his drug bottles and smack it upside someone’s head and if he did this to LCH cai er would do some things to him that will make him wish he had died.

  • paplne

    “When up against Long Hao Chen, this young lady summoned a mount that she herself could basically not recognize at all.”

    I think you mistranslated the above section wrong. He faced an assassin in the first match, Huang Yi in the second, then two priests and three assassins in the following 5 matches.

    I checked the raws and used bing translator. This is how it was translated, “As Long Haochen judge it,this girl can’t determine what you can summon.”

    Hopefully you see this, since this changes the story a bit

    • Providence

      Thank you. I just started reading this novel a few days ago, and just caught up with the manhua (ch.65 moonlight merchant group ) equivalent of this novel and this specific information has been bothering nonstop. In this translation, at this moment it was as if LHC already fought Chen Ying’er and then at the Top16 draw, the young girl was complaining to LHC because he skipped their match. And your post enlightened me on this confusion. Thanks again.

  • Ronald Wood

    Hahaha no backbone

    • Ravenous Basilisk

      Rly? what’s the point of the match if he cannot attack himself?
      At most it would’ve been a draw, but I guess he would’ve ended up injured right at the start…

    • ViRuss

      Who are you? Riddick? HA!

  • Arua

    “Lil’ bro! Where did you get yourself a little lady as abnormal as you!?” XD

    “Her defeat was against a summoner from the Spiritual Temple. However, on the next day, when this summoner ran up against Cai’er as his opponent, he was directly heavily wounded by her”

    She’s totally “don’t touch my man, don’t touch his relatives, I’ll kill you!!”
    LOL

  • KenKen

    So Cai’er now called Lin Xin big sis too like Hao chen. >.<

    • Justin

      you mean Li Xin? lol

  • Robin

    I love the Knight Temple playing matchmaker part. ^^

  • sueita

    Lil’ bro! Where did you get yourself a little lady as abnormal as you!?

    i’ll answer that… in the forest…
