Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 176

Chapter 176: Contribution Points Equally Divided? (III)

Haoyue paced back and forth before lying on his stomach and shutting his eyes. The six eyes on his three heads started to distribute a thin purple light, concentrating a huge amount of spiritual energy aura. Long Haochen could vaguely feel that he entered the state of cultivation.

A magical beast having the ability of training directly their spiritual energy by entering a state of cultivation were quite rarely seen. The overwhelming majority of magical beasts generally relied on their natural evolution to enhance their capabilities. Only, because Long Haochen didn’t have much knowledge on this aspect, he never felt that it was strange.

Soon after Long Haochen entered this state, hurried footsteps could be heard from outside and the door was knocked, letting out Peng, peng, peng sounds.

“Is Long Haochen there? There’s an army ministry order for him to immediately come to report.” These words sounded quietly, immediately awaking everyone who just entered the state of cultivation.

Long Haochen wrinkled his brows, jumping down from his bed. Putting on his military clothes, he became the target of the others’ looks. Making a small gesture with his hand, he walked to the door of their living quarters.

A soldier fully clad in martial attire was standing at the entrance. Looking in his twenties, he had a solemn expression.

“Hello, I am Long Haochen.”

Seeing the youth before their eyes, the soldier clad in martial attire was slightly startled, because Long Haochen’s elegant appearance could give a breathtaking feeling. Performing a salute to Long Haochen, he declared, “Please follow me, the army ministry orders you to immediately come to report.”

“Good.” Although Long Haochen didn’t understand what was happening, he gave the salute back to him.

“I’m coming with you.” At some point, Cai’er already arrived by Long Haochen’s side.

Long Haochen revealed a smile and , “It’s nothing, just go grab some rest. I’ll be coming back soon.” Having said so, he turned around before following this soldier.

Cai’er stood there, wrinkling her brows. Only when she could not hear Long Haochen’s footsteps anymore did she close the door of their living quarters.

Sat on his bed, Sima Xian murmured, “To be calling out people so late, the military ministry is truly shameless. ”

Lin Xin smiled and remarked, “Maybe it’s to honor my performance of today?”

Under that soldier’s lead, Long Haochen headed toward the city gate once again. On the way, an extremely bloody scent assaulted his senses. Obviously, during the short time that passed after they left, the battle in the city had grown all the more intense.

That soldier didn’t lead him to the front lines, but to a three meter high passageway behind the city walls, leading to a second floor.

Having not gone to the city gate tower before, Long Haochen felt distinctly that a tremendous amount of magical essence of every attribute was present, and was currently growing frantic.

Stepping into this city gate tower, Long Haochen immediately saw an astonishing scene. First of all, he saw more than a thousand mages; magic was unstoppingly being released in the front, while mages in the rear were trying to catch up. Ten groups of mages were continuously cycling on unleashing magic, with a great amount of priests and Guardian Knights in front of them.

Gazing at the scene from afar, he could see that an enormous halo formed of golden light had enveloped the front of the Exorcist city walls; no enemy could climb them. But the main demon forces were omnipresent and from all places, to the extent that a black pack of enemies was formed in the air, .

Violent rumbles rang unceasingly, and bullets of light were frantically exploding, dealing violent damage to the side of the demons’ main army forces.

It shocked Long Haochen to the extent that he was completely speechless. No matter whether it was on the human side or the demon side, all people seemed insignificant in this kind of battlefield.

The soldier led Long Haochen, walking straight and passing by the center of the room. With a glance, Long Haochen saw that Sheng Lingxin was standing there, commanding the others.

Sheng Lingxin had a solemn face, his eyes sparkling with coldness. Even if there was still ten meters distance separating them, Long Haochen could feel his overwhelming killing intent.

At least a dozen commanders were standing beside him, each one of them releasing an extremely powerful aura. They were at a level that Long Haochen at the first rank of the fifth step could not possibly compare to.

“Reporting. I brought Long Haochen with me.” The soldier who led Long Haochen shouted out these few words with a specially loud voice. The nearby exploding sounds were just too loud, so if he didn’t do so, he would have difficulty even hearing his own voice.

Sheng Lingxin turned slightly his eyes, sweeping a glance to Long Haochen before bending forward, immediately transmitting an order.

Going to his side, Long Haochen stood straight, performing a salute to Sheng Lingxin.

Sheng Lingxin didn’t give him a single glance and continued to command the guardians.

“Call the Airborne Knight team to return, to rest and reorganise. The summoner team is to summon flying magical beast to replace them in a moment.”

“Reporting, leader, the Brilliant Angels Knight Squadron is ready.”

“Reporting, the Assassins of the Dark Night are ready. ”

Sheng Lingxin’s eyes lit, looking at his side before saying, “Replace me in conducting the defense. These demons spawns… They will not give up unless we inflict heavy losses upon them.”

“Leader, where are you going?” The commander looked at Sheng Lingxin with a shocked face.

Sheng Lingxin nodded, and said, “In my capacity as commander-in-chief, can’t I go boost the soldiers’ morale? I believe that’s what I ought to do.”

“Lan Yanyu.” Sheng Lingxin said in a loud voice.

“This subordinate is there.” Lan Yanyu, clad in a watery blue mage gown, stepped forward toward him from a nearby position. Seeing her, Long Haochen couldn’t help but feel shaken. This person was Cai’er’s mother, so when he thought of the scene where he been seen by this Lan Yanyu sharing a bed with Cai’er, Long Haochen couldn’t help but feel awkward. Slightly bowing forward, he performed a salute to her.

Lan Yanyu didn’t give Long Haochen a single look, only giving Sheng Lingxin a concerned look.

Sheng Lingxin said in a deep voice, “A moment later, I am going to lead the Brilliant Angels and the Assassins of the Dark Night to rush and kill the enemy in the front. After I’m out, the mage regiment no longer has to economize magic power; order them to protect our two sides while using the magic cannon to cover us. Also, inform Elder Brother Gao’s group that they have to get ready to provide support at anytime.”

“Yes.” Lan Yanyu immediately retrieved her staff, and slightly bowing, performed a mage salute.

Sheng Lingxin gave Long Haochen a glance, “Come with me.” His voice was extremely cold, but especially distinct. It sounding like a gust of ice cold wind blowing in the summer. Although it was quite cold, this tone aroused his fighting spirit, and particularly awoke his consciousness.

With but a single sentence, Sheng Lingxin turned around and took large strides, but unexpectedly, no soldier accompanied him.

Although Long Haochen didn’t know why Sheng Lingxin suddenly called him over, this Sheng Lingxin was the supreme commander of this Exorcist Mountain Pass; how could Long Haochen possibly disobey his orders? Hurrying, he followed with large steps.

Earlier, Long Haochen walked up to an upper floor, arriving above the wall on the border of the city, but now, Sheng Lingxin was leading him towards the center of the Exorcist Mountain Pass.

After going down from there, a large area concentrated with large armies appeared.

It was already late night; a moonless night, only litten by the magic radiances that occasionally brought a little brightness to the city.

With the help of this light, Long Haochen faintly saw that in the space below, a wide area seemed to be glinting with metallic lusters.

Sheng Lingxin’s motions seemed slow, but Long Haochen needed to run to catch up to him. He noticed that every steps Sheng Lingxin took seemed to cover a very large distance, making him appear as though he was sliding over the ground.

Below the city gate tower, Long Haochen condensed his spiritual energy within his eyes, immediately taking a deep breath.

Under the stimulation of the spiritual energy, his eyes had a mysterious feeling. Everything in his line of sight seemed particularly distinct, and at this moment, he could finally see the identity of that metallic luster in detail.

It was actually coming from big, majestic horses clad in a thick black armor. That armor seemed as if it could wrap their bodies in it. These tall horses were furthermore extremely robust in appearance. Elevated nearly three meters high, surpassing five meters in height, these war houses had majestic appearances. It was the first time Long Haochen saw such imposing horses.

Similarly, the knights mounting these horses looked very robust. They were at least two meters tall, and were clad in black heavy armor. Their legguards, seemingly linked with the armors of these war horses, created a feeling that the man and the horse formed a single entity.

The most peculiar was that at the back of these tall knights were two immense wings roughly three meters in length. They looked as if they were done of complete metal, and on the armor at the knight’s back stood a pair of heavy blades, pointed forward toward the horizon.

Every knight had an approximately three meter long heavy blade in his hand, its handle occupying a third of the whole space. It was furthermore a third of a meter wide, and three patterns extended forward on the two sides. The blade, as smooth as water, carried a silk of red.

At that moment, a great amount of foot soldiers were standing on stairs, near these huge horses. Obviously, a lot of staff needed to be working together to clad a knight that way.

Because it was deep night, Long Haochen was unable to see clearly how many of these knights there were. But he could vaguely see that on each of these tall horses, another person seemed to be seated at the back. Only, they seemed less imposing and thinner than these knights, and seemed completely concealed by the knights’ majestic figures.

Sheng Lingxin brought Long Haochen to stand at the top of the troops, raising his right hand. Immediately, a bright light shot up, illuminating the dark landscape.

Immediately, these knights that were originally still a bit noisy completely quieted down. The huge horses were standing in neat formation; because his line of sight was obstructed by the fact he was standing on the ground, Long Haochen was unable to see clearly how many people in total there were.

“Brilliant Angels and Assassins of the Dark Night, the savage demon spawns are attacking our Exorcist Mountain Pass. Over the last thousand years, we have never lost our homeland to any kind of foe. This general is going to stand in the front lines, cutting a bloody path out of this battlefield and aiming for their chief.”

Bam, bam, bam.

Three metallic sounds broke out at the same time. None of the knights spoke; the entirety using the heavy blade in their own hand to beat their own chest armor.

  • Bardioc

    Oh comments are open =) SYWZ is so cool^^ Thanks a lot

  • Schwarze

    Bet this army ministry order is from cai’er parents

    • Night Vintral

      it stinks of conspiracy

      • SAimNE

        i really don’t want to think that they are stupid enough to try to do anything to him… but the mom doesnt seem very rational. if they are going to threaten him, kill him, or w.e else cai’er would kill them. if she couldnt link it to anyone specific, she’d probably kill anyone it might be…. then if they are trying to convince him to leave her, they should have heard what happened when he didnt pick her for the team….. breaking your daughter in order to keep her from falling in love with a talented and suitable partner would be absolutely retarded.

        really hoping they are just calling him for a discussion, if they have any negative intentions i’m going to consider them as mentally handicapped because they have enough info that ANY rational person would know that it’s a terrible move.

        • Austin Griffin

          They are definitely crazy enough to know do it especially how they treated their daughter.

        • Xias

          I think the summon is about his team defeating that beta flying demon because due to them defeating that demon those power houses aiming for that demon entered the battlefield in vain during the attack. ;-pp

        • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

          if they try anything their own temples will kill them without the knight temple asking

    • Drifter

      I hardly doubt they know what position he holds in the Knight temple. He is just as important to them as Caier is to Assasin temple. Not to mention the big wigs now know who his daddy is.
      I just hope they are not dumb enough to mess with him. The blow back will be harsh, Knight temple is the leader of the temples. Messing with their prodigy who is the son of another prodigy and a power holder of divine throne is not a wise thing to do.

      • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

        way more tbh

        • Drifter

          yeh that was before caier took in the saint spiritual stove. Now its a 91 innate level kid with the saint stove so 100 so i dont think atm LHC is more valuable to the temple than caier. Frankly i m sure half of the guys dont know LHCs potential to pamper him.

          • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

            also he’s the first 90+ knight that makes him an unprecendented wild card on their side u don’t mess with those and expect to get away with all ur limbs intact

          • Drifter

            yeh man the guy took him to battle front line where he can be easily killed.
            If he died (he wouldnt he is the MC) I am sure his dad would come in the wall and kill the parents on execution style assasin temple or not.

          • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

            if the fact that he pulled this get’s to the ear of someone important that knows LHC’s identity he wouldn’t get off scot free. but that’s real life i bet noone’s gonna do shit to him despite the fac he clearly nearly killed a rookie demon hunt squad leader which should be considered abuse of authority easily punishable by court marshal. not to mention this can easily be attempted murder charge with the “reason” being what it is

  • Nerodragon12

    Since he’s been accepted by the leader of their family what he has to worry about

    • Joseph Orellana

      even if he wasnt that is irrelevant she would still be with him as long as thats what she wants herself. hell hath no fury like caier when/if they try to stop her.

  • Xias

    Cliff Hanger, go die!!


    • Ravenous Basilisk

      He can’t, he’s still hanging on a cliff xD

  • Luke Confidential

    Ying’er forgot to make room in her house for Austin.

    • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

      they need a pet house :3

      • Luke Confidential

        Sure if Ying’er is going to be sharing it with Austin.

        LCH and his mount each have a partner in the squad. [Granted I have absolutely no idea how the hell Austin Griffon is going to actually engage in intimacy with such a small and frail creature unless his next evolution brings shapeshifting powers with it.]

        • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

          wait who’s the mount’s partner? o.0

          • Luke Confidential

            Austin Griffon X Chen Ying’er OTP

  • kroonoSekai

    i can sense the workings of cai’er mama and papa with how haochen was called.

  • Nasir

    Thanks totobro.
    This was one of the most boring chapter. No fighting

  • JBJHova

    Thank you for the update.

  • Captain Facts

    Awesome. I guess he wants LHC to see how awesome he is?

    Anyway, thanks for the chapter!

    • craptonium

      Maybe he has hopes for LHC to “accidentally” or “heroically” die in the process of an assault. We shall find out.

      The parents are ruthless stinking shits, not because they pulled all the shit they did on Cai’er for her to achieve a high level of power which they can justify as that, nor for the building of desensitization in the process to mature her faster; but for almost breaking her personality in the process and almost turning her into an emotionless robot/puppet/machine.
      LHC’s father was much more intelligent and rational at applying the same plan for his son by also supplying and enforcing his mental stability with carefully formulated positivism and motivation.
      Cai’er wouldn’t be so full of hate for them had they the intelligence and social prowess to push the right buttons and implant the correct psychological “worms” in her mind, during the little period they did have contact with her.

      I could hypothesize out of this, and out of my ass, that they are stupid enough to put LHC in such danger, whether they do or do not know about LHC’s background.

      • QWERTY

        Well, you might be wrong about her parents. We dont know what their circumstances were at that time. Maybe their grandfather banished them somewhere or didnt let them go near Cai’er. That person have enermous influence in Assassin Temple afterall.

        But i think same too. If they are doing this with an ulterior motive, this will just make Cai’er more pissed off and there is LHC’s background too.

        Even if that is some kind of test for him Cai’er still will be pissed i think. They dont have the leisure to test him, in Cai’er s eyes, they dont even have the right to decide if he is worthy of Cai’er or not.

        I hope LHC wont share these points with his teammates..

        • Emadish

          I don’t get why they don’t gather all the points on LHC until the 3 months are over since LHC’s retainer doesn’t count towards their total contribution.. aside from that they could constantly enter battle ending with a CONSTANT and retarded amount of times gathering and dividing their contribution points again and again.. seems pointless as hell 🙂

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • Kwarlis

    For some reason after I clicked the link the only thing I see is the preview of 176, not the full chapter

  • Pavel


  • ddadain

    Lots of people seem to be thinking negatively on why LHC was singled out, but I for one am hoping it is going to be like a mentor ship thing, where the big uncle shows LHC how to command a large battalion…

    Also, LHC must learnhow to know when to accept losses… that he cannot always save everyone and that sometimes it isn’t worth it to sacrifice yourself for other people :p Since, it bothers me that LHC used that AOE spirit replenishment skill that a costed him 30% of his own… Thus reducing his own reserves if there was an emergency situation…

    LHC should learn that other than Cai’er and him, everyone else is expendable if it means them two surving since they 2 got the most potential to even occupy the 1st and 2nd vacant Divine Thrones :p

    • saryunsenee

      first , i think u should remember that if any of their teammates died , then their squad will be disbanded . also , i think we all prefer him to be like this than to be a selfish bastard
      also , if I’m not mistaken, only knights can own a divine throne !

      • Austin Griffin

        Right only knight can become divine knights and even with him being held back by that ability he still got the most contribution points out of everyone else of the team. Han yu also replenished his spiritual energy at the critical moment and don’t forget about the drugs. It would ruin the story if he was selfish.

        • Luke Confidential

          Big Bro has drugs!

    • asmodous

      If one person in the dhs dies, it’s disbanded, he needs to try and keep everyone alive, plus with the scion complex he has tons of spare power, especially with his retainer backing him up.

  • Austin Griffin

    Is it just me or are the horses and knights the size of giants even the sword is big.

  • Austin Griffin

    Is it just me or are the horses and knights the size of giants even the sword is big.

  • RyokoZero

    Cai’er’s dad is not about to do what I think he is…. take him to front line and see what he’s got. I don’t think he os gonna try to kill em.

  • lordcattank

  • Oddmoonlight

    Just one question, war houses? ‘These war houses had majestic appearances’… Save yourself LHC, papa assassin wants you to become a carpet under the horses!

    • Ravenous Basilisk

      ‘3 meter-high war houses’ … not even surprised xD

  • imtheboss

    I wish Hae Yue would reverse summon him now. Interrupting somebody while cultivating is truly shameless.

    • Drifter

      yeh but he would look like a wuss then.

    Oh geez. Please don’t tell me HaoChen is going to act like one of those Knights on horseback with Sheng Lingxin behind him as assassin?! Lol. Man, my imagination is running wild as to why he called him out.

    • ViRuss

      Well… I thought it was funny, like “haha, yeah mate crazy imagination”.. But…

  • Anne1000

    Oh geez. Please don’t tell me HaoChen is going to act like one of those Knights on horseback with Sheng Lingxin behind him as assassin?! Lol. Man, my imagination is running wild as to why he called him out.

  • TheEKPrimo

    I hope LHC isent stupid enough to actually follow him into battle, even if he is the commander and cai’ers father, especially because he is that trash of a father, at least i think he is that trashy father.
