Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 148


Chapter 148: Decisive battle against Yang Wenzhao! (I)

At this moment, a lot of people had already forgotten the matter with Cai’er. No matter whether it was Long Haochen or Yang Wenzhao, the two finalist displayed absolute power exceeding the vast majority of the other competitors’. Furthermore, from the beginning of the fight, they hadn’t even taken out their personal mounts.

A great amount of golden, white, blue dazzling light was breaking out in the sky. At last, two figures fell from the skies, one after another.

On Long Haochen’s Holy Spirit Armor, at least six holes appeared. In fact, they were the result of the Starsea Spiritual Stove, which finally pierced through his defense.

On the other side, Yang Wenzhao appeared in a much worse shape. Today, what he was wearing was a golden armor. This golden armor clearly had at least a dozen sword marks on it, especially on its left side. A large hole was split open in the middle, fresh blood dripping out from it.

With a Wa sound, Long Haochen spat out a mouthful of blood. His injuries weren’t any lighter than Yang Wenzhao; the Starsea Spiritual Stove’s might was something that gave Yang Wenzhao a significant advantage. However, as he spat out this blood, he had already launched a charge at Yang Wenzhao.

This guy is simply mad! Could it be that he doesn’t even need to take a breather? Seeing Long Haochen charge once again, Yang Wenzhao was filled with a completely unwilling feeling.

Long Haochen’s eyes displayed an enormous fighting spirit. However, they also appeared extremely calm. To be able to combine these two splendid qualities together… What a frightening existence!

Actually, Yang Wenzhao didn’t know in the slightest bit that with the external stimulation, Long Haochen’s constitution of a Scion of Light was gradually influencing his fighting spirit. His physique of a Scion of Light gave him the natural talent called ‘Heart of Light’. Under the effect of Heart of Light, in whichever situation he faced, his decision-making power would not get affected by his feelings. And the most formidable innate talent that could be possessed by knights was gradually coming out from Long Haochen, in his capacity as the Scion of Light.

Fiercely gritting his teeth, Yang Wenzhao chose to not clash head-on with Long Haochen again. This kid was just insane! If this kept up, it would very possibly end up with the two of them being wounded. Furthermore, with the comparison between his opponent’s momentum and his own, it wouldn’t be surprising if he was to come out as the loser.

As a result, at this moment, Yang Wenzhao did the best he could to calm himself down, going for a defensive strategy, and slowly retreating while unfolding both arms and rapidly drawing the outline of his summoning command.

As long as he could summon his Starlight Unicorn, he would be very likely to win this battle.

Yang Wenzhao’s retreat was naturally not done by walking backwards as this would not give him any way to keep up with Long Haochen’s charging speed. His choice was to use [Assault] as well, charging at the opposite direction, swiftly heading to the side while launching his summon incantation. It could be said that he was going for the side of Long Haochen.

At the same time, a starry light glittered from his chest, gradually coming out and rapidly covering his whole body. An armor covered his whole body just like a huge mountain; this was the ability of his evolved Starsea Spiritual Stove, Starry Spiritual Armor.

With this defense, even if he received several long-ranged attacks from Long Haochen, Yang Wenzhao wouldn’t be much harmed.

But at this very moment, alarmed shouts resounded from the lounge.

It was a pity that Yang Wenzhao didn’t hear these cries of alarm coming from the periphery of the stadium. Actually, the stadium was not only sound-isolated from its periphery, but also simultaneously from the whole rest of the world.

From the lounge, the competitors only saw a purple light twinkling, before three giant heads appeared below Long Haochen, standing proudly. It was precisely Haoyue.

He… He didn’t use any incantation or draw any magic figures to complete this incantation? How is it possible? The most confused people over this scene were the summoners from the Spiritual Temple. However, no matter what their guesses could be, Long Haochen had completed this summon in an instant.

In the instant Haoyue appeared, three spells instantly came out simultaneously.

In a flash, a lump of green light fell on Long Haochen’s body, covering it entirely with its drizzling luster. A lump of red light was puffed from Little Flame’s mouth. And finally, a golden light illuminated Long Haochen, on this blue Hibiscus of Light in his right hand.

Three abilities were simultaneously used, accomplished without a hitch. The place where Haoyue appeared was slightly in front of Long Haochen, so Long Haochen was actually on his tail.

As a result, at the same time Little Green, Little Flame and Little Light used his abilities, Haoyue, with his figure appearing more than 4 meters high swiftly waved his tail, taking Long Haochen and throwing him at Yang Wenzhao.

An enormous fireball with a meter diameter flew before Long Haochen, completely concealing his body. It was the flaming light that Little Flame had just created.

[Super Bursting Fireball], spell of the fifth step. Originally, it is a spell creating a single fireball, but when exploding, it can display the power of several spells used at once. And among fire spells of the fifth step, it is one of the best ones in terms of offensive power.
In the middle of his summon, Yang Wenzhao suddenly felt a scorching hot feeling at his back.

How can there be a scorching hot feeling? His magic figures were about to be completed, so if it was interrupted in this instant, he was very likely to be at an even greater disadvantage.

Therefore, Yang Wenzhao gritted his teeth, his armor letting out a brilliant radiance, appearing just like flames in the sun. Except, these solar flames weren’t released by his body, but came from his supplementary armor, and they could only persist for three seconds.

Bang – Pa

The [Super Bursting Fireball] ruthlessly exploded on Yang Wenzhao’s body. This was a spell of the fifth step! How could a supplementary armor coming from the use of an ability possibly stop it? The solar flames instantly scattered, as the heavy explosion was launched in the instant the fireball collided with the Starsea Armor, producing a heavy explosion.

However, in this instant, Yang Wenzhao reacted contrarily to expectations. In the end, he chose to resist this strike, his magic figures taking advantage of this instant to be completed. A rich-gold-colored hexagon glittered before him. He was about to summon immediately his Starlight Unicorn, letting this match start anew.

But, also in this instant, Yang Wenzhao felt an unprecedented feeling of crisis covering his whole body. He didn’t have the time to make any decision at this instant, and turned around desperately, his two swords slashing backwards. Louuu

Two crossed white brilliances formed an [Instant Blast Cross Cut], aiming at Yang Wenzhao’s two swords from above.

A heavy metallic burst sounded in the air, as Yang Wenzhao’s two swords were broken and a white blade of light ruthlessly aimed at him, splitting open his Star Spiritual Armor as well as the body armor he was clad in. This terrifying offensive power directly struck Yang Wenzhao from the air.

As blood frantically spread out, Yang Wenzhao had a single interrogation, How could this happen?

A white radiance twinkled, pulling the heavily wounded Yang Wenzhao, making his body forcefully move backwards.

Xilulu. With a long and hoarse cry, the Starlight Unicorn finally came on stage. Relying on a contract of equals, he could immediately feel Yang Wenzhao’s crisis, and spreading his two wings, rushed towards Yang Wenzhao without the slightest hesitation.

Also at this moment, a white light rose, this time on the Starlight Unicorn’s body. It originally headed towards Yang Wenzhao’s, but it turned without the slightest resistance, heading instead in the direction of Long Haochen.

Using [Divine Obstruction] and with his two swords crossed, Long Haochen simply stopped the Starlight Unicorn’s charge. Although he was pushed a little dozen or so meters back, the Starlight Unicorn was also shaken and receded a few steps back, without the possibility of launching another successive charge.

“Stop! I am not trying to injure him.” Long Haochen shouted out loudly to the Starlight Unicorn.

The Starlight Unicorn was very obedient, and immediately stopping his charge, had its pair of beautiful eyes filled with a worried expression.

It was understandable that he didn’t dare launch another attack, as he was actually afraid of the aftermath if he was to wound this little guy. On the other side, Yang Wenzhao was currently facing Haoyue. Little Green bit into Yang Wenzhao’s neck without any restraint, while this latter didn’t dare move the slightest bit. Still, blood was unceasingly dripping out from his mouth and nose; clearly, his current injuries were extremely heavy.

The whole audience fell silent.

At this moment of the match, the results were already obvious.

Before today’s semifinals began, the other competitors felt that the final victor of the competition could be themselves. From the looks of it, the one who had the higher odds of being the victor ought to be the Assassin Temple that had Cai’er. The strength that Cai’er had displayed was, after all, too overbearing! In front of her, no one had had a chance of even lasting for a quarter of an hour.

And immediately after Cai’er, the other one with great odds of ending up victorious was Yang Wenzhao. He possessed a Starlight Unicorn, and was himself a formidable Retribution Knight of the fifth step. With his overbearing cultivation level, equipment, and the assistance of his Starlight Unicorn, he was supposed to be able to stand against Cai’er. Between, these two, it was hard to guess who the final champion would be.

As for Long Haochen, who was placed third after these two, from a lot of people’s point of view, as a knight, he was still too young. Although he definitely had good talent, there was bound to be a gap between his odd mount and a Starlight Unicorn. And his cultivation level in itself couldn’t match Yang Wenzhao’s. If not for his relationship with Cai’er, there was no way he would have attracted as much attention as these two.

As for Mu Ning, it seemed that no one considered him as someone capable enough to enter the top three.

From the beginning of today’s match to its end, everything that happened had completely overturned everyone’s point of view. Cai’er went as far as to surrender her own match, and despite the fact she was the favorite for numerous people, at last, she only ended fourth. As for Mu Ning, with his luck of dog’s shit, he picked up the third place. However, in this battle between Long Haochen and Yang Wenzhao, this latter was the overwhelming favorite. In fact, it was because the Starlight Unicorn’s existence was just too overbearing.

During this match, Yang Wenzhao proved his formidable strength. Not only did he possess the both offensive and defensive Starsea Spiritual Stove, but furthermore, he had already completed its first evolution!

    Thank you~

  • LoliD.

    TY~!

  • Bulletstorm

    thanks a lot

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • Azuka

    Nice chapter, you can definitely see LHC’s improvements compared to last time.

  • Austin Griffin

    Damn LHC crushed him

  • Vern

    “As for Mu Ning, with his luck of dog’s shit, he picked up the third place.”
    I’ve got nothing to add.
    Thanks for the chapter.

    • tyler

      An odd phasing, right? Maybe in other cultures that’s like good luck for worthless or hopeless people? I know in england bollox, is balls and a negative expletive, but dog’s bollox is a positive one. Only guess there?

  • Captain Facts

    Thanks for the chapter! I’m surprised the unicorn could even attack him.

    • Austin Griffin

      I think it is because knights and their mounts share special bond but even then it did not really wat to attack him

      • The Dragon King

        Yeah I gotta admit I expected for the unicorn to bow down to him or something like the king did but I guess friends will protect friends no matter what, which I why the unicorn totally stopped when LCH said he won’t kill him and is anyone else thinking LCH has an army of unicorns -7.5m badass points (he has like 9.9 quintillion)

        • Kurowind

          I think LCH status as Scion might get leaked soon, Especially if Yang’s Unicorn shows some sort of respectful gesture to LCH for probably healing Yang

          • The Dragon King

            Maybe for the rest of the knight temple but other don’t really know as much as them about mounts so might just think it’s cuz LCH healed or didn’t kill yang.

  • Pavel

    Thanks.

  • The Dragon King

    Never underestimate a badass op mc. You fodders feel like idiots now don’t ya

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much for the chapter Totobro!

  • Avarrencus

    Thanks~

  • fgjafhyr

    I wonder if any other hall master’s recognized LHC’s sword or his fathers technique.

    • JBJHova

      They already know about his father; well atleast the knight temple guys do. They were debating on telling LHC about his father’s current situation. They also questioned why his father taught him sacrifice earlier. I’m sure Knights Temple is keeping this a secret. Secrets make no sense in an alliance thought; the more knowledge shared would equal to better chances against the demons imo.

      • tyler

        that’s if everyone is grownup enough to know and accept they are in the passenger seat (out of the spotlight) for a generation. Otherwise the jealous, demon sympathizers, or those holding LHC to grudges involving his father or knights/the privileged in general may try to get others to cripple LHC in competitions or refuse to reinforce his new squad at critical moments in battle. There are a thousand ways to get someone killed on a battlefield without getting your hands dirty. Imagine bribing a fellow knight to cripple LHC for a spiritual stove, which has two effects, makes for more spotlight to go around, makes you better equipped so you grab more of the spotlight vacuum. hell, do it mid competition and a long-shot contestant might end of with two spiritual stoves and in a demon hunt squad for his work! He could also inherit Ye Hua’s grudges again. If that other guy knew his son would lose, do you think he would have let Gui work into the beating… honestly I’m not sure the fear or the knight temple or Xing Yu is stronger then hatred and the moment?

  • Whatever

    Well, LHC totally forgot about the promise he gave to Lin Xin…

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! LHC has finally cleared the slate with Yang Wenzhao

    • tyler

      I wonder about that. He may have evened the score and done so on a much bigger stage, but I feel like that doesn’t necessarily alleviate the grudge from Cai’er getting involved on his behalf and Yang thinking LHC was the motivator.

  • kyosukedeiknives

    should really add a bar for how much is donated…. not just words…

  • Frun Blumglin

    Thanks for the chapter!!!~

  • k1nk4

    thanks for the chapter!

  • paplne

    Thanks for the chapter!

    “As blood frantically spread out, Yang Wenzhao had a single interrogation, How could this happen?”

    Instead of interrogation, wouldn’t thought or question fit more?

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • JBJHova

    Didn’t anyone notice; I may not be understanding this correctly, but didn’t little green just kill Wangzuo. I quote ” Yang Wenzhao was currently facing Haoyue. Little Green bit into Yang Wenzhao’s neck without any restraint” Thank you for the chapter; awesome as always.

    • Marvin Agyeman

      I think he was wearing armor

    • tyler

      I’m guessing its like how a police dog will mouth an assailant’s windpipe, but the no restraint seems oddly worded. I think there may be more context in there though! Think turner and hooch

  • heliocat

    Thank you for the chapter! I bet the damage little green did will be healed by little light so no need for alarm… Also, no way Haochen loses to a knight at the same step as him, glad he overcame his hurdle of losing to this guy before. ^^

    • totesose

      yup, if he doesn’t heal him there’ll be trouble for LHC

  • Weismann

    Amazing job totobro. Thanks

  • Charlotte

    Thanks for the update toto😁

  • totesose

    wow <3 thanks 4 the chapter 😀 Can't w8 4 the next demon hunting arc!

  • Sedar Ordek

    I hope they dont get on the same team, i’d probably drop this novel if theres more chapters where they hold hands, or hug or blush under a veil x10. I hope they would be seperated so the story moves past awkward kid moments and focusses on the development of battle hardened veterans risking their lives to fight demons. Somehow i see cai’er but just not interested in her, i rather read about LHC and Hao Yue and hear about hear about her every 30 chapters..

    The whole love is being force fed to us because in a fe2 chapters caier will be picked y someone else,

  • deadman1975

    i read last few chapters nd it met expectations. yang gets creamed nd LHC opens big can of woop ass. still to go that far for a hug… wonder how much more will he do for next step? haha still enjoyed it so far…. curious how this team setup will end up?

    Thanks for your hard work Totobro!!

    • Solraze

      im pretty sure cai’er would give him a hug or any thing if he asked for it… she would be shy as hell thou. lol

  • deadman1975

    i read last few chapters nd it met expectations. yang gets creamed nd LHC opens big can of woop ass. still to go that far for a hug… wonder how much more will he do for next step? haha still enjoyed it so far…. curious how this team setup will end up?

    Thanks for your hard work Totobro!!

  • tyler

    I’m having a hard time piecing out what effect the new OP sword had. Also LHC should still be a lower cultivation than Yang, but more efficient in his spirit usage and clear-headed in battle. That’s fine, but does anyone else think Yang’s battle strategy had less stacked skills than before. Didn’t he stack holy sword on assault and several other complex moves before… etc. But now more single deep skill moves and he got pwned. Maybe that’s an effect of being injured by the explosions, and not waiting one more day for finals after forfeits or just having his initiative stolen by the faster LHC (since it may take a longer time or cooler mindset to stack them)?

    • Austin Griffin

      Yang was more focused on summoning his mount rather than stacking his skills compared to the previous round because his opponent was no longer a fourth step but a fifth step. Yang knew that his mount was the only clear advantage he had over LHC. Stack skill would not cut it these round because both opponent could do them and LHC did not give him enough time or distance to use them.

    LOC good job

  • kensche heiashi

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

  • Qwerty word,The Wise Young Boy

    Ah yes the luck of dog shit, all losers worst fear are being the one’s to pick people for a team. Lol ; )

    • Garrosh Hellscream

      I dunno what you meant, but to clarify, Dog shit luck, or Gou Shi Run, mean very lucky lol. An example could be: Someone stepped in dog shit, and someone says to the man who stepped in shit- that’s dog shit luck. Maybe you’ll be really lucky in the near future lol. That’s what it means.

  • KenKen

    As for Mu Ning, with his luck of dog’s shit, he picked up the third place. Lol

  • Kaarme

    It’s so hard to click the Next Chapter knowing Haochen can’t choose Cai’er because he promised to pick the other dog’s shit luck individual, the drug dealer magician, before he even knew of Cai’er’s existence.

    • Oathkeeper

      There’ll be a way. Do you really think that Cai’er conceded to 4th place that they still wouldn’t be put in the same squad? She’s already his main waifu I think it’s guaranteed they’ll be in the same squad.
