Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 129

Chapter 129: Innate Talent Sharing! (I)

“This… is this the phenomenon of innate talent sharing of the master knight to his retainer knight? Impossible!” Han Qian looked at Long Hao Chen, eyes wide opened, just as if he was looking at a monster. The uncomprehending and astounded look on his face had never been so distinct before.

Taking a deep breath, Han Qian looked at the body of his own grandson, Han Yu, his face becoming very serious. As he waved his right hand toward Han Yu, after a split second, Long Hao Chen saw that Han Qian’s finger was emitting a sparkling, translucent and penetrating gold color. It was [Brilliant Body], a skill of knights of the seventh step.

Han Qian’s hand was shivering; his five fingers moved rhythmically, mystical bright symbols moving in a mysterious trajectory, undulating around his hand. Immediately, it turned into complicated patterns, directly marked on Han Yu’s chest.

Immediately, Han Yu’s body shivered and, on his chest, a golden glow appeared, slowly rising in the air and turning into a pillar of light that kept rising and rising.

Han Qian’s gaze was still firmly focused on this pillar of light, his look becoming even more and more excited.

Ye Hua and Long Hao Chen looked at a loss, not understanding at all the scene before their eyes. They did not understand this ability Han Qian had just used, nor did they comprehend what was happening before them.

After a short period of time, the golden pillar of light finally stopped rising. And Han Yu’s two hands were still unconsciously clenched.

“Really, so it’s really this way. 80, 80th level!”

Finally turning back, Han Qian looked one more time at Long Hao Chen, with an incredulous look. Sizing him up and down, he looked at him as if he was a sort of rare treasure.

Long Hao Chen felt a bit uncomfortable under this gaze and couldn’t help but ask, “Senior Saint Knight Head, did something happen?”

Han Qian took a deep breath, and with a wave of his right hand, a golden mantle immediately covered the whole room and everything within it, including them. His next words left both master and disciple, Ye Hua and Long Hao Chen, completely shocked.

“Little Hao Chen, ah, Little Hao Chen, you are really unceasingly shocking me to the extreme limit! Innate internal spiritual energy, 97! Scion of Light! I didn’t expect that after the start of this Dark Age that occurred 6000 years ago, our Knight Temple would finally produce a Scion of Light. Haha! Hahaha!”

Long Hao Chen and Ye Hua were completely shocked and they looked at each other without exchanging a single word, seemingly simultaneously being prepared for a fight. However, the one before them was precisely the senior Saint Knight Head from their Knight Temple! It meant that he was an enormous powerhouse that could cope with the both of them effortlessly. Furthermore, they didn’t believe that this Han Qian would have bad intentions towards them.

“You… How do you know about this?” Long Hao Chen, still completely blank, asked. The other party had already spoke out the exact amount, so there was no use to try concealing it further; he might as well ask an explanation.

Han Qian could already not calm down at all and his eyes carried an excited raging flame in them as he said, “It is precisely the retainer knight contract that exposed this. A retainer knight and his master knight are very intimately related. To make an agreement, there’s a need for both parties’ blood vessels to share a connection. As a result, a drop of your blood is needed and, during the completion of the retainer knight contract, if the master knight’s innate talent outstrips that of the retainer knight by a wide margin, the retainer knight’s innate talent will increase to some extent. And after the end of this contract, this increase of innate talent will accordingly disappear.”

“This so called ‘outstrip’ applies if there’s a certain difference between them; it is this innate talent sharing I mentioned previously. This difference is represented by a gap between the innate internal spiritual energies exceeding 30. In other words, as long as the master knight’s innate internal spiritual energy is more than 30 levels higher than his retainer knight’s, the retainer knight’s innate talent will accordingly be promoted. The degree of this promotion equals half the gap between the innate internal spiritual energies.”

“Little Yu’s innate internal spiritual energy is at the 63rd level and, at this level, it’s already not bad at all. However, now, it has increased to the 80th level! It means a difference of 34 compared to his 63rd innate level. From this, your innate level can naturally be deduced. It’s 97, a spiritual energy at the 97th level! I really didn’t expect that, in my lifetime, I would get to see someone with the physique of a Scion of Light appear.”

Long Hao Chen and Ye Hua both laughed foolishly in front of Han Qian.

Ye Hua murmured, “How… How is it that I have never heard about these benefits of a retainer knight contract?”

Han Qian said, “Retainer knight contracts are originally few in number and, in addition, I am the only one capable of producing this innate talent sharing effect that I discovered through my researches in regards to ancient languages. Without need to mention you, even the higher-ups of the Knight Temple have no way to know about this method. Furthermore, this method is so useless to the overwhelming majority of people that there is naturally no necessity to spread it to our Knight Temple. ”

Hearing about this sharing method, Ye Hua could naturally not stop his body from shaking as he asked in a thrilled voice, “Senior Saint Knight Head, how.. how many retainer knights can one master knight possess through this method?”

Han Qian gave his reply without hesitating the slightest bit, “The limit would be two. It is because this method involves a spiritual link; if there are too many retainers, that will naturally influence the mental capacity of the master knight and have unfavorable effects on it. As a result, I’d say that, from our knowledge, the absolute limit would be two retainer knights.”

With a deferential sound, Long Hao Chen immediately kneeled down, “Senior Saint Knight, I beg you, please let Teacher accomplish a contract through your method. Teacher is a real genius!”

Hearing this, Han Qian was immediately startled.

To the side, the stirred up Ye Hua looked directly at Long Hao Chen, “Don’t, Hao Chen. If you do this, because of me, you will have no way to obtain another retainer knight ever again.”

Long Hao Chen stubbornly shook his head, “Teacher, the most important thing is for you to become truly powerful. To have Brother Han assisting me is already enough for me. As long as he can help you to raise this innate talent of yours, this disciple will have no regrets.”

“Wait, wait. How is it that I have no idea about what you’re currently speaking of?” Han Qian gave puzzled looks to both master and disciple.

Ye Hua sighed to himself, before reverentially answering, “Senior Saint Knight Head, this subordinate has an innate internal spiritual energy that is only at the eighth level.”

“What?” Han Qian cried out in alarm with a very loud voice, making the ears of both Long Hao Chen and his master dizzy. It was fortunate that this divine light that was covering them was sound-proof, so the sound would not spread to others.

Han Qian’s alarmed state was for real. This reaction was not the slightest bit lower compared to when he learned about Long Hao Chen’s innate internal spiritual energy level of 97. What did an eighth spiritual energy imply? It should imply that there was no way to break through the second step! However… However, he didn’t only break through it, he was furthermore an Earth Knight!

In this instant, Han Qian instantly came to understand why Long Hao Chen said Ye Hua was a real genius. Genius was not all about innate talent. For someone whose innate internal spiritual energy only reached the eighth level to be able to reach the level of Earth Knight, to persevere so much, relying on perseverance and research, would the word ‘genius’ be enough to describe it? Taking a deep breath, Han Qian gave Ye Hua a firm look, “How much effort did you have to exert to make up for this handicap?”

Ye Hua smiled bitterly, “Innate internal spiritual at the eighth level is nothing glorious; it’s only subject to ridicule.”

“Ridicule? Bullshit! Idiot, how many people with an innate internal spiritual energy below you do you think there are among humans? The overwhelming majority, at least! If they could all reach the level of powerhouse of the fifth step through training just like you, do you know what that would imply for humanity?” Han Qian seemed almost to be howling.

In this instant, Ye Hua was immediately shocked. This life of his was only about effort and battles against the heavens. The ridicule he was subject to in this world had developed his reclusive personality. To put it in other words, he had become totally self-centered, living only in his own world.

Hearing Han Qian’s words, he immediately came to understand that these dozens of years of bitter and unceasing training were actually his force. And, although the personal training methods he came up with through researches and struggles weren’t really fitting to a little freak like Long Hao Chen, it could be said to be fitting to the overwhelming majority of people with insufficient innate talents.

With a lift of Han Qian’s hand, a golden light came out from the ground, sticking to Long Hao Chen, “I accept your request. Right now, I look forward, even more than you, to the kind of miracle this teacher of yours will create. Ye Hua, extend your left hand.”

“Yes.” Ye Hua was at that moment very respectful, just as if he was actually Long Hao Chen’s disciple. This matter of innate talent had completely broken his life.. but this was finally going to change!

Ten minutes later, a mark similar to the one on Han Yu’s hand appeared on Ye Hua’s.

Ye Hua and Long Hao Chen did not even need to discuss the matter of retainer knight. They were master and disciple, with a relation akin to that of a father and son. Yes, Ye Hua was going to become Long Hao Chen’s retainer knight, but so what? Would he use this to give Ye Hua orders? With their relation of master and disciple, there was already an absolute confidence between them. Even communication was needless for each of them to make decisions for the sake of each other.

Another drop of blood fell.

Ye Hua’s senses were almost tenfold sharper than this Han Yu’s. As soon as the golden halo surrounded his body, his body convulsed with an excessively comfortable feeling, as if he was on the verge of fainting.

The difference between his spiritual energy and Long Hao Chen’s was 89, so after the innate talent sharing, his innate internal spiritual energy was going to be increased to the 52nd level! Although, as before, it wouldn’t make him a genius in this regard, to Ye Hua, this increase of innate talent was going to cause his fate to change drastically!

Feeling his perception of the light element increasing by leaps and bounds, feeling the changes that occurred in the internal spiritual energy inside of him and the changes in his innate capabilities, Ye Hua couldn’t help but let his tears overflow. While holding Long Hao Chen in his embrace, he unexpectedly burst into tears.

Starting from dozens of years ago, he had to bear the inexhaustible mocking of others, bear the pain of being expelled by his very own teacher, bearing anything and everything. He walked with an unyielding mentality that supported each of his steps. The burdens of this moment had lasted for dozens of years. Over these dozens of years, he was engaged in endless fights against these burdens. And, at this very moment, the dozens of feelings that were repressed in his heart started to flow out like an inexhaustible waterfall breaking out all of a sudden.

Looking at Ye Hua who was crying very loudly, Han Qian stood on the side without intervening the slightest bit. With his professional behaviour and experience, how couldn’t he guess what kind of feelings were repressed inside Ye Hua over so many years? To let him release it all at once was the best choice possible.

Letting everything come out of the depth of his heart, this would have an enormous benefit for his future cultivation. Although he wasn’t young anymore, in regard to cultivation, his future accomplishments were going to be boundless.

  • Tenzai

    The feels :'( Ye Hua you deserved it!

    • Ded1

      agreed, people seem to forget, genius is 5% talent, 95% hard work

      • Andrew L

        Pretty sure it was 1% talent, 99% hard work, but the 1% was the most important part.

        • Falinmer

          Not quite correct, even if you had 5-6% talent but made no effort, someone with only 1% talent but actually has a massive amount of hard work can still outdo the lazy 5-6%, however if they have equal levels of hard work then yes, it does come down to talent.

          • Andrew L

            No, I’m actually quoting what it said earlier in the book, forget which chapter though. The 1% talent is referring to how much it will affect their future, but the 99% hard work is still needed to bring that talent out. Of course, without hard work, the talent is useless, but if someone with talent and someone without it were to work equally as hard, the talented one would definitely become stronger. Hence why the 1% talent is most important. Well, I’m pretty sure that’s what it meant. ;-;

        • Ded1

          Eh, no matter which one you use it gets the point across. Even a genius who doesn’t work hard will fail.

  • Andrew L

    He better tell him to keep the secret. Lol. Long Hao Chen is so OP he makes others OP as well. Thanks for the chapter!

  • pocscz06


  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Lutre

    Oh, so he will go and hunt with him now? 😛

    • Mikeal

      I don’t think Ye Hua can participate with Hao Chen seeing as they are supposed to form groups from the the participating members of the tournament. At least that’s what i gather from what was mentioned previously, besides from the comment Li Xin made a couple chapters ago multiple people of the same class can’t be on the same team.

      • Sarlisark

        well but there is the exception of retainer knights. So i believe both of them would be allowed, though I believe only Han Yun will go with him.

  • kooG

    dam.. loved this chapter.. couldnt have been better

  • Leticia

    I really like the relationship between Ye Hua and Hao Chen ~ so cute
    Thanks for the chapter

  • JBJHova

    Thank you for the chapter. Does this mean his teacher has 5 years to gain all his cultivation accomplishments? After the contract is over, his innate talent will go back down. I’m guessing that he will keep all the gains he will achieve in the 5 years though. Good for him.

  • demonrcool

    Nust read next chapterr it is going to be so good

  • Felix Schlüter

    Was ist bot in the past Charters unbare talent of 9 and can not break threw the 3 step? Toto

    • yep normally, with an ISE below 10, it’s impossible, but Ye Hua did more, he reached the 5th step despite that, and that makes him a genius, no, something above a genius.

      • Rob Engranajes

        He’s a genius of Hard Work! Like Rock Lee and Kenichi! 😀

        • RyokoZero


      • Felix Schlüter

        No, what i have mean, is that of you can correct his innate talent to 9 and can not Break threw the 3 step normally, like in the previous chapters.

    • tyler

      I would say he represents an alternative path to the higher ranks if knowledge and extreme motivation are present. I can only think of berserk knights from orphanages with the grit to pursue revenge against demons. It would also mean FAR more mounts for knights! That would be a game changer for the ranks of the army and defense force. Even a doubling of the moderate/advanced rank knights or a quickening of each knight’s rank-up would blow the demon army’s power projections for each human generation out of the water. Used to maximum affect it would be a sneak attack or counterattack rather than a slow trickle into the front line units. Also if trickle happened demon army might attack in fear of a reversing power distribution before plans come to fruition.

    • Godking

      Is what you typed some sort of unknown variation of English.

  • Cendana Putra

    Now with his 52 new innate talent ye hua will soon rank up to saint knight. Yeah..!! But wait… Is this only for 5 year????

    • Falinmer

      Even if it is, my understanding is only his innate talent will return to normal, while the results of the efforts he makes during those 5 years should remain, basically if he works hard enough during these 5 years and advances considerably, even if he drops back down a bit from the loss of the innate talent boost and is no longer capable of advancing, he will still be able to become much stronger on his own.

      • Cendana Putra

        Ahh i see, if that so it would be awesome for both ye hua and han yu, in next chapter i hope LHC will have his new weapons, lol. Cant wait for it

        • Kreight

          han yu’s contract was for 5 years but the other one should be longer or permanent

          • Cendana Putra

            Agree 🙂

    • Dicky

      It’s possible that with Han Qian’s knowledge of the ancient languages he could give Ye Hua a longer period of innate talent sharing (and being a technical retainer knight). We would just have to see if they ever talk about it again in future chapters.

      • Cendana Putra

        In next 5 year :
        LHC : Sciont of Light Divine Knight of the Slaugther and Salvation.
        Ye Hua : Berserk saint knight
        Han yu : saint knight
        Li xin: ??
        Lin xin:??
        Lan jia lu: ??
        Cai’er :?? Divine assasin of samsara

  • Little note: Maybe this boost lasts only five years, but maybe it’s the contract of obedience (gives the right to control life or death of the retainer) that only lasts five years.

    Or maybe it’s a contract that can be renewed?

    I guess we’ll discover the answer to this question later on.

    • Cendana Putra

      Cant wait for the next chapter 🙂 . Thx u toto 🙂

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Woot! Ye Hua will become a powerhouse soon!

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter. I hope this innate talent boost is permanent cause Ye Hua deserved this. Having innate talent of 8 and becoming an earth knight, he has a chance of becoming a divine knight.

    • totesose

      I’m guessing he’ll probably be his retainer knight forever. At least that’s what I understood cuz they were saying things like: you’ll never be able to get another knight your whole life.

  • Luigi De Jesus

    WAAAAAA!!!!!!!! I’m touched so good for YeHua…….

  • ChelseaS

    Awww…this chapter made me tear up. 🙁

  • totesose

    yaay for amazing author making every character have a chance to shine 😀

    • totesose

      btw it’d be cool if the retainer contract allows LHC to summon Han Yu like he summons Hao Yue…

      • bruh

        lol, yeah, that be cool, summon han yu,while he’s shitting or something, that be hillarious

  • tyler

    I wonder if everyone is regretting wasting one of the contracts by “programming in” a 5 year life span. Maybe a chance to renue?

    • Luke Confidential

      Not only is there a chance to renew, there is also a chance to replace. Teacher was worried about LHC sacrificing a retainer slot for him because he knew the contract LHC intended for him would be sustained until one of them died.

      • tyler

        A very good point, but here’s another. Could this limited number be influenced up or down by the contract of equals + blood contract with Hao Yue? Only time and the author can answer though I guess.

  • Zetta

    This is pretty awesome, teared up a little for Ye Hua. From my understanding the contract with the grandson is for 5 year but it doesn’t mean that the innate sharing is lost after 5 years. I think it just means that after they have ended the retainer contract will the sharing stop. As long as Ye Hua stays s retainer he will keep that boost.

  • Need eye candy

    Idk how I feel about Han Yu. Bad vibes, man.

  • Cadiz Etrama Di Raizel

    darn the union ninja strike again T_T

  • Da Feels

    Holy crap the feels were real :'(


  • Linny6511

    Aww that chapter was super heart warming. Seriously started tearing up for Ye Hua he really deserves this. Thanks for the translating 😉

  • jkcdeo

    What about Li Xin? she needs a boost too!

    • Luke Confidential

      Considering the young age she became a Knight, she probably is already in the 50’s or 60’s. Not high enough to be classified a talent-genius, but a pretty impressive level by general standards.

  • Pavel


  • Luigi De Jesus


    • 采儿

      If I’m not wrong the middle head is light element, why this become fire element?

      • Mech@

        yeah, little red is supposed to be the leftmost.

        • any story that adapted to manga always changed somewhat.

        • Anne1000

          Dudes. Don’t get so agitated. They just coloured the pic wrong.

      • Sarlisark

        also, when he still had only two heads light was in the middle between a bump and little fire, so it was just some mistake with the 3rd head.

  • Felix Schlüter

    Chapter 40:

    Ye Hua said: “My innate internal spiritual energy is only nine.”

    “Ah?” Only nine? Long Hao Chen clearly remembered his father’s words:
    if one’s innate internal spiritual energy could not even reach ten, it
    would be very hard for him to break through the third step to enter the
    fourth step.

    Why is it now changed?

    • euh, I wonder. Maybe the standard changes depending on the person? I mean different people interpreting different things in different ways? Or author forgot about this part earlier? Sorry anyways :O.

  • Majk

    *Sniff* Damm I hate it when it rains in my room

    • Hurges GhX

      ah it is the same in my room

  • Drifter

    Bah i want him to increase his level to above Ca’ier and become the ultimate powerhouse no 1.

    • Majk

      Well Ca’ier inicialy had a lower leven than LHC but then she fused with the spiritual stove of the holy Samsara (or how ever you spell it) and her spiritual level shot to over 100 so meybe there is a stove like that left behind by the frist Sicion of Light that LHC can get

      • Drifter

        I know abt all of that actually I was one of the 2-3 guys who asked totobro to recheck since we knew that she ws 93 from the raws..
        The issue is i cant wait till he becomes like 105 or sth

        • bruh

          ikr, long hao chen should have become 111 or something.., so he can summon an angel? ,uuuuuu

      • emmuli1999

        It was told earlier that LHC is the first Scion of Light.

        • Majk

          No he is the second one the first Scion of Light lived 6000 years ago wehn humans defeted the deamon gods

          • paplne

            Nope, LHC really is the first Scion of Light. If you read the paragraph, it says after the dark age started 6000 years ago, the Knight Temple finally produce a Scion of Light. Plus if you remember his father even says during the Awakening that there has only been 3 in the history who has 80 and higher, but that his son is the first one to pass 90 innate internal spiritual energy
