Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 184


Chapter 184: Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood(I)

As he said so, he carried Long Haochen, handing him to Gao Yingjie. He could comprehend perfectly Gao Yingjie’s mood; clearly, these Temple Knights had been dispatched for the only sake of following Long Haochen. If it wasn’t for Long Haochen’s sake, the Knight Temple wouldn’t possibly have let ten Mythril Foundation Knights lead ten newly formed Demon Hunt Squads. There had been no precedent of this even in the past!

From the eyes of the others, this was because many outstanding talents had appeared on the side of the Knight Temple, but only Sheng Yue knew that the fundamental reason was Long Haochen’s status as the Scion of Light.

Thus, he handed Long Haochen to Gao Yingjie, as the most important priority was to let him confirm Long Haochen’s safety.

Naturally, Gao Yingjie had immediately investigated Long Haochen’s condition. Except from being weakened, the latter didn’t have any big issue, which let him loosen his breath greatly.

In the previous battle opposing Long Haochen and his companions to the demon army, Gao Yingjie had been continuously observing them secretly. As long as Long Haochen didn’t encounter danger, he wouldn’t act personally. And when Long Haochen returned to his own living quarters, Gao Yingjie naturally went back to rest. Upon seeing him in the battlefield once again, how could Gao Yingjie not be alarmed? Just now, it was furthermore demon gods that appeared! In spite of everything, Long Haochen wasn’t in danger, letting his mood improve greatly. As for the circumstances behind the fact he entered this battlefield, they would have plenty of time to investigate that after returning.

After handing Long Haochen to Gao Yingjie, Sheng Yue’s face appeared even more alarmed. Compared to Long Haochen’s condition, Sheng Lingxin’s could only be described as horrible.

At that moment, Sheng Lingxin’s face looked as white as snow, but the most peculiar thing was that on his face, a baby-like smile was revealed. Just looking at that, Sheng Yue immediately realized what his own grandson did. Thinking in addition about the corpses of these demon gods’ direct subordinates they saw on the way, Sheng Yue couldn’t help but feel a sharp pain. Nonetheless, no matter what could be said, his grandson had at least managed to come back alive after resisting these demon gods. This could be regarded as a very good luck on their side.

At the moment those three grand demon gods appeared, the first thought that came to their mind was the Brilliant Angel Knight Squadron ending up defeated, and that even if they came to help, it would already be too late. In case they clashed against the three demon gods and their three hundred direct subordinates, the three thousand man Brilliant Angel Knight Regiment could only end up with enormous casualties. Seeing that this time, the demons’ armies had launched such a surprise attack, the results looked self-evident.

But Sheng Lingxin’s proper decision had saved this Brilliant Angel Knight Regiment from this fate. Launching an attack they would hardly be able to defend against, he broke these three grand demon gods’ plan. If he hadn’t been able to resist these grand demon gods, stalling some precious time, then the results would indeed have been disastrous. And Sheng Lingxin managed to do so with a cultivation level merely at the peak of the seventh step.

As for the reason why the three grand demon gods chased after him, it was precisely because the might of Sheng Lingxin’s blow was already comparable to the peak of the eighth step. To them, killing such a powerhouse looked even more important than to annihilate this Brilliant Angel Knight Regiment. More importantly, Sheng Lingxin’s surprise attack had enraged these three grand demon gods. At last, with Long Haochen and Haoyue’s help, Sheng Lingxin managed to complete his objective. But as for him, he fell as a result into a deep coma.

The Brilliant Angel Knight Squadron had at that moment already retreated, retreating under Sheng Yue’s command, returning to the Exorcist Mountain Pass. As for this great attack of the demons’ armies, it looked that it would finally come to an end.

At the time Long Haochen gradually awoke from his state of unconsciousness, he felt that his whole body was lacking strength, feeling limp and painful, and that the internal spiritual energy in his body was in a weak state. He only hardly managed to move his own body.

“Haochen, how are you feeling?” Gao Yingjie’s gloomy voice sounded.

Long Haochen’s eyes gradually opened, “I… I’m alright. Leader, where am I?”

As soon as he stood up, Long Haochen immediately found out the answer to his question.

From this wide room, he could distinctly see that the outside sky looked as dark as before, whereas this room was quite simple. And at this moment, quite a few people were there, including Gao Yingjie and the other squad leaders. Sheng Lingxin was lying on a bed at the other side, and Sheng Yue, Lan Yanyu as well as seven or eight higher ups of the Exorcist Mountain Range were present.

“Great-grandfather?” Seeing Sheng Yue, Long Haochen couldn’t help but cry out in alarm. And the way he called him left the others completely speechless. In particular, Lan Yanyu looked at Long Haochen in complete disbelief.

Sheng Yue nodded to Long Haochen, his face looking very solemn, “I’m glad you’re okay. All right, now that Haochen came back to his senses, Yanyu, tell me, what happened in the end? Why has Haochen gone there with Lingxin?”

Lan Yanyu clearly looked afraid of Sheng Yue; her face appearing extremely pale, she looked at her husband, still in coma, but carrying such a strange smile on his face. She couldn’t help but shake violently, unable to say a single word.

“Great-grandfather, I was the one who wanted to accompany father-in-law to the battlefield.” At that time, Long Haochen suddenly spoke.

Sheng Yue blanked out, and similarly, Gao Yingjie’s group couldn’t help but stare blankly.

Sheng Yue asked, full of doubts, “You wanted to accompany him to the battlefield? I just asked the others, and it looks like at that time, you have been called over by Lingxin soon after having returned from the defensive battle to your own living quarters. For which reason did you follow him to the battlefield? Don’t tell me you forgot that you are the member of a newly formed demon squad; don’t you know how dangerous it is to go to the main battlefield in the battle against demons?”

Long Haochen calmly looked at everyone and could not conceal the admiration he revealed at that moment! “Ehh… It was because Uncle Sheng was aware of my identity, and because he is familiar with my father. So he was concerned about my situation, and after the battle ended, he specially called out for me. It was to encourage me, and to because he wanted me to follow him in learning about commanding the army.”

Hearing Long Haochen say so, Lan Yanyu couldn’t help being stunned. No one knew the reason why Sheng Lingxin called out to Long Haochen better than her. At the moment she heard these words, although no change appeared on her expression, everything happened within her.

Sheng Yue’s face looked extremely serious, “Haochen, although Lingxin is my grandson, if he did anything wrong, even if he doesn’t survive from this, I will still discover it. You don’t have to cover up for him; let alone him, even I don’t know who your father is. I am not convinced by your explanation at all.”

Long Haochen shook his head, “Great-grandfather, all I said was truth. It happened because I used my father’s self created technique, but uncle Sheng happened to recognize it, and in the past, he also learned it from my father. It was this way that he recognized me, and expressed the will to look after me.”

Letting out these words, Long Haochen astonished once again everyone else in this room. What status did Sheng Lingxin hold? He was the only grandson of a hero of the ninth step, Sheng Yue, and even considering his status and his position, he actually learned a technique from Long Haochen’s father? And that was a self-created technique! Who could Long Haochen’s father in the end be?

Sheng Yue revealed a curious face, “Who in the end is your father?”

Long Haochen took a deep breath, lowering his head and looking at Sheng Lingxin who looked as though he was in the verge of collapsing, before telling him, “I can only tell it to you, and no one else.”

Sheng Yue nodded, lifting up his right hand. A brilliance immediately surged out, locking him up with Long Haochen. A moment later, Sheng Yue’s expression became incomparably grotesque, to the extent that he had to swallow a gulp of his own saliva, as he had a completely shocked look.

“No wonder… It’s truly no wonder… All right, I believe you, please go on. So why did you set foot to the battlefield with him.”

Long Haochen continued, “I followed uncle Sheng in the battlefield to watch the battle, and he told me about the fact he knew my father. Besides, he told me to go to rest after encouraging me. Right after going down to the city, I happened to see uncle Sheng go down as well, preparing to join the Brilliant Angel Knight Regiment in the battle. Hence, I ran to him, wanting to combat alongside with Uncle Sheng. Uncle Sheng originally disagreed, but at that time, the army was already about to be launched and couldn’t be delayed at all. Then, he warned me repeatedly to stay close to him, and has stayed by my side to protect me all along.”

“What a troublemaker!” Gao Yingjie couldn’t help but shout out in anger, “How did I teach you? Obeying the orders is a military’s duty and this is the battlefield. Do you know how dangerous your behaviour was? How could you follow them so boldly although you are not familiar with the Brilliant Angel Knight Regiment’s fighting methods at all? No matter whether it’s about yourself encountering danger or disturbing the whole regiment, I cannot forgive you this time.”

Gao Yingjie’s entire body was shaking; if he wasn’t in the presence of so many people, he would definitely have slapped Long Haochen.

Long Haochen lowered his head, “I am sorry, captain. I know I was in the wrong.”

Gao Yingjie coldly glanced at him, ”Show me your contribution tile, I am going to confiscate all the contribution points you earned.”

Long Haochen nodded before taking off his Holy Spirit Armor. At that time, with a Paf sound, a book fell from his chest.

“Eh?” Long Haochen looked distracted before picking up this book.

This was a booklet that looked ordinary, but on it were written four golden characters, ‘Raise flowers into trees’.

What is this? Long Haochen was absolutely sure that this thing didn’t belong to him.

Seeing this book, Sheng Yue and Lan Yanyu were completely astonished. Originally, Lan Yanyu didn’t understand why Long Haochen covered up the truth to Sheng Yue in such a way, but in the instant she saw this book, she immediately came to understand the importance Long Haochen held to the other party, and his father’s identity.

Sheng Yue asked doubtfully, “Was this book given to you by Lingxin?”

Long Haochen scratched his head, and replied, “I don’t know about it! It may be that Uncle Sheng handed it to me after I lost consciousness. ”

Sheng Yue’s tone changed immediately, “Until now, I have always believed everything you just said. This boy, you’re just too disobedient, how could you follow him to the battlefield? Do you know that if anything happens to you, those old guys from the Knight Temple will slaughter their way to settle the bill with me?”

As he said so, Lan Yanyu’s face immediately changed greatly, and the other generals looked also overwhelmed with shock. What kind of antecedent could this youngster have? Even if he was the son of a powerhouse of the ninth step, how could he leave this Sheng Yue worried to such extent.

    FIIIIIIIIIIIIRST

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre !

  • Thanks for the update! Now I can finally sleep. ^,^)

    Penalty points and Gao Yingjie & Sheng Yue’s disappointment because of insubordination. Hmmm…That is really not HC’s fault and its so damn frustrating..

    Well whatever! Atleast Haochen got the parents approval this time… <3 🙂

  • Brauka

    Ahh what an enjoyable chapter, bow down plebians to our humble lord LHC!

  • Schattenbach

    I wonder what would’ve happened to Lingxin if Haochen didn’t protect him …

  • Guilherme Cunha

    Lan Yanyu be like “I done fucked up”

    • confused

      yeah judging by her expression… haha serves her right… she should be on the receiving end of the slap instead

  • Schattenbach

    Another question, as I don’t exactly remember about what’s been said before … at what points in that dialoge did Haochen go beyond twisting the facts into half-truths and told outright lies/made up nonsense to cover up for Lingxin (as well as his wife, I guess)?

    • Jot •_•v

      probably because they’re Caier’s parents.

    • Cyrs

      The lies start when LHC says, “Lingxin encouraged him, then sent him back to rest.” The other blatant lie, would be that LHC just wanted to watch the battle. Then coincidentally, decided to join Lingxin in battle. And of course, LHC couldn’t be sent back because it would hold up the army.

      The half-truth, would be that Lingxin recognized him as Long Xingu’s son “before” the battle started.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • confused

    Looks like everything is settled for now.. Wonder how Cai’er is going to react when she finds out about the whole thing?

    Thanks Totobro for the new chapter and sponsor too!!

    • Jot •_•v

      I bet LHC will tell her the same thing he told ShengYue :/

      • sighhhh

        Agreed. Already lying before their relationship barely judt began.

      • confused

        Yeah you are probably right on that but I don’t think she will actually believe him completely. I mean it is regarding some of the people she really hates, her parents.

      • Darky

        but cant she see hear his heartbeat and know that he is lying?!

  • confused

    Looks like everything is settled for now.. Wonder how Cai’er is going to react when she finds out about the whole thing?

    Thanks Totobro for the new chapter and sponsor too!!

  • Gator

    Thanks for the chapter, team Totobro and Ali G!

  • Muzik Saint

    Hahahaha It was a good cover up until that book dropped. Well at least he gets to keep his points now lol. Thanks Totobro!

  • Nbsiren

    Thank you for the chapter^^

  • kadiveti

    thx for the chapter

  • Captain Facts

    Well, I guess the reasons Long Haochen is important are:

    1. His father.
    2. His physique as a Scion of Light
    3. His sword Blue Rain, Hibiscus of Light.
    4. Cai’Er.
    5. Plus he’s cool.

    • Bardioc

      Dunno about point 1-4 but the 5th point seems legit

      • Steven Nguyen

        don’t forget 6.he hot as hell

        • Jonathan Hurd

          At this point I think ‘Plus He’s cool’ should be higher ranked on the list, lol.

  • kadiveti

    i wonder how is his father now?

  • RyokoZero

    Lying like a canery… everyone jsut believing him then the book drops and GGP reveals too much.

    • TheDisappointment

      Yet they still mad. He should of had just told the truth. I’m not even sure if they’re mad because LHC lied or because they believe him. Plus only Sheng Yue and Lan Yanyu knows he’s lying for sure.

      • RyokoZero

        yeah but he didnt want his father in law to die or be punished for bringing a non-solider/elite outside the gates. I think this is for the best… his punishment is only a little loss of face and maybe about 50 points.

  • Hairy Ferengi

    If Cai Er’s mother doesn’t speak up and confess, I think she deserves her daughter’s hatred. 😛

  • JJay

    So… Now all the Generals and the 10 temporary leaders of the DHS know not to mess with LHC… Or they will be slaughtered…
    By the way, LHC came back alive so I wonder how Cai’er will react to LHC claiming his reward… XD

  • Cyrs

    I don’t like the fact LHC lost all his points, or the fact he is
    being seen as a “troublemaker” for obeying a commanding officer…but,
    covering for Lingxin is probably the best thing he could’ve done at that
    point.

    Here’s to hoping he doesn’t lie to Cai’er, and tells her the whole
    truth from start to finish…he’s dumb enough to do it though >_>.

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter Toto

  • Azuka

    Thanks for the chapter Toto

  • Jkcdeo

    Hao Chen LIED? O_O

  • JJay

    I found this wording a little awkward:
    “At the time Long Haochen gradually awoke from his state of consciousness…”

    Shouldn’t it be “At the time Long Haochen gradually awoke from his state of unconsciousness…” OR “At the time Long Haochen gradually awoke to a state of consciousness…”

    • thanks should be ‘unconsciousness’ youp.

  • LHCWHYYOULIE

    God damn it LHC, you just disappointed me with your lie. Lan Yanyu better speak up. The others should of had realized that it wasn’t the whole truth.

    • Cyrs

      I think he did the best think for the situation. A ridiculous amount of problems could come up if he didn’t lie. For one thing, the relationship between the knight temple and the assassin temple would get worst…and that’s not good for LHC & Cai’er. Then Cai’er’s mother would hate him even more…and probably blame him for the punishment they would get. Plus, LHC just faced death itself to get the approval of his father-in-law, who happened to be his father’s friend…do you think he would just lingxin throw under the bus like that?

      • Jaberwocky

        I totally agree with you. Especially given how he came up with it on the spot, the possible outcomes he just avoided are well worth it. Plus Cai’er’s mother has a better opinion of him now, and if not at least she’ll be waay too scared to do anything to him again

    • Iric Alexis

      i still cannot understand why Gao Yingjie buy that lie.. i though he follow LHC in prev battle.. so why he didn’t think about when did Lingxin see the so called unique skill…

  • ItooOKj

    Lan Yanyu… speak when you’re spoken to!!! Stupid how they take his contribution points.

  • TskYouEffedUp

    Man I just don’t understand what military rules did he break. They realize he’s lying and that he obeyed his orders. So they’re angry because of the lie? Just seems like a way to take his points. Yeesh. Bet Lan Yanyu will just stay silent the whole time.

    • Cyrs

      They don’t realize he’s lying. It’s not just as simple as breaking a rule. It’s also the danger he put himself in, and the trouble he caused for others.

      Either way, according to his lies, the main things he did wrong was to defying orders or insubordination. Since LHC said, he was told by Lingxin to go back to his barracks and rest. But then instead of doing that, LHC decided to tag along with Lingxin into battle. Then according to LHC, Lingxin didn’t send him back because it would delay the knight squad. These are all lies of course…but they believe it…unfortunately for LHC.

      • Iric Alexis

        well technically he disobey lingshin when lingshin indeed ask him to go back when 3 demon gods show up. lol.

        • Cyrs

          XD Yeah that’s true. But disobeying an order to keep his honor as a knight, is still way better…than disobeying for the sake of curiosity or arrogance (or whatever his lies implied).

  • Christoph

    Long Haochen’s eyes gradually opened, “I… I’m alright. Leader, where am I?” And where am I?”
    I’m pretty sure the “And where am I?” at the end is unneccessary

    • youp happens when I translate twice the same sentence by mistake thanks

  • InsanityGinger

    Lan Lanyu better fucking come clean, I’ve really not got a good impression of her so far

  • aron

    Sheng should tell the truth and gave back long hao chen’s points

  • Leecher

    Anyone else just cracked up when he said Do you know that if anything happens to you, these old guys from the Knight Temple will slaughter their way to settle the bill with me?”
    PS~Shouldnt it be those? Or are those old geezers really there in that room?

  • Abhijit Meys

    Thanks for the chapter!!

  • arjun

    thanks for the chapter

  • Raquib Anand

    meh.. what a coward is cai’er’s mother.. i thought she would come forward and speak the truth already.

  • matricha

    thank you all…………..

  • Hellopps

    Thanks for the chapter all! Checking a few sentences…

    Originally, Lan Yanyu didn’t understand why Long Haochen covered up the
    truth to Sheng Yue in such a way, but in the instant she saw this book,
    she immediately came to understand the importance the other party held
    to Long Haochen, and his father’s identity.

    Is this right? Does it really says the importance the other party holds to Long Haochen, or should it be the the other way around?

    Also, “Until now, I have always believed everything you just said. This boy,
    you’re just too disobedient, how could you follow him to the
    battlefield?

    Is this sentence right? Why is it until now I’ve believed everything? He doesn’t believe him after he saw the book?

    • Long haochen holds to the other party, youp. As for the second, yep, that’s right

      • Hellopps

        quick response! thanks toto =).

  • Anto Wibowo

    So sheng yue know the truth now?
    Thanks for the chapter

  • kensche heiashi

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

  • KenKen

    Finally some know, some knew, and some can tell that Hao chen has abnormal background and not just a normal kid.

  • TheEKPrimo

    OMG! Why the hell is he covering for that trash couple, not only does he lose all his contribution points, he also gets all the blame for them trying to pretty much kill him. I seriously cant say it enough how stupid this MC is, and what happented to knights honor, isent he supposed to not lie…

    • Oathkeeper

      All your comments are negative af you should stop reading this novel

    • Nerurin~Pyon

      Is it so difficult to accept Cai’er’s father?

      You’ve only read Cai’er’s part of the story, and that was when she’s 3 years old! No parent would ever want their child to suffer.

      Cai’er’s parents didn’t have a choice since they we’re pressured by the whole clan and Cai’er really DOES have an innate spiritual energy of 93(ish).

      They couldn’t just run away from their home where everyone needs them, won’t they?

      Also, thank for the chapter!!
      I really appreciate the continuous effort!! 😄

    • Nerurin~Pyon

      As far as I know, Knight aren’t gods, they are just ‘loyal’ and ‘honorable’ people…

    • IvyHav3n

      Think of Han Solo and Leia, they did practically the same thing. Do you hate them?

      • TheEKPrimo

        Yeah i do…

    • Wendy Mew

      Kindness is the main key of this MC. He got all ten virtues of the Knights.
