Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 019

Chapter 19: Knights’ Sacred Mountain (III)

“The Knights’ Sacred Mountain is a place where our Knight Temple raises various kinds of magical beasts. In the Knights’ Sacred Mountain, there is a peculiarity discovered by our ancestor from the Alliance three thousand years ago. That place is very good for the growth of magical beasts and will reduce their wild nature. Taming them becomes really easy. A young knight just needs to be approved by one of them and then he can take it away, making it his mount. It is also one of the best privileges our Knight Temple has, just like the enchanted equipment that a young genius mage from the Mage Temple can receive. But you should know that among those in our Knight Alliance’s top ranks, all of them visited the Knight’s Sacred Mountain.”

Long Hao Chen’s dark blue eyes immediately lit up, “What if all of the magical beasts from the Knights’ Sacred Mountain are tamed?”

Li Xin couldn’t help laugh: “How can it be so easy?! In our entire Knight Temple, if there are a few tens of Knights below 20 years old in the same year, it is already not bad, and sometimes, there are not even ten knights. Also, at the Knights’ Sacred Mountain, there is a great summoning array that seems to be able to connect to a particular place from which a magical beast will be summoned from after a time interval. Thus, you don’t have to worry about the Knights’ Sacred Mountain having a shortage of magical beasts. That said, on the mountain, there are even ninth step magical beasts. If one can get a ninth rank magical beast, it can be considered equivalent to having reached at least the seventh step of the vocation.”

Long Hao Chen asked: “Elder Sister, at which step is your Rose Unicorn?”

Li Xin proudly answered: “My Rose is, at the moment, a fifth step magical beast, but it isn’t mature yet. After it has grown up, it can attain the seventh step at the least, with power equivalent to someone with a sixth step vocation [1]. Your elder sister will also become at least a sixth step Radiant Knight, so you should double your efforts too haha.”

“Yeah, then I’ll double my efforts with my first goal set to becoming qualified to visit the Sacred Mountain.”

The mission was easy to complete. With the protection of a Genuine Knight who had already visited the Mountain: it wasn’t a difficult task at all for a second step knight who could use [Divine Obstruction] to kill ten magical beasts. After only half a day, the task was accomplished. He got 25 gold coins and his first entry of completed mission on his adventurer certificate.

Sometimes, a new meeting was truly a wonderful thing. That was how Li Xin felt: she really liked her new little brother; not only did she help him with his mission, she also accompanied him to the Town of Odin located more than 100 kilometers (200 Li) apart from Hao Yue City and they were both very reluctant to part.

It would soon be night and, looking at the red-colored sunset at the horizon, Long Hao Chen couldn’t help but show a triumphant smile: “Teacher gave me two days to complete a mission, but I only needed one. Let’s go back home to see Mother, and then I’ll go back to the summit of the mountain tomorrow morning to surprise Teacher.”

Thinking about it, he jubilantly headed home, but at the same time, his head is filled with envy, reminiscing about the beautiful reddish silhouette of the Rose Unicorn. How fantastic would it be if he could, in the future, have a magical beast as his mount! Long Hao Chen clearly knew that it would have been impossible for him to pass the examination if Li Xin had ridden her Unicorn.

Filled with this sentiment of admiration, he quickly saw his cottage. To give a good surprise to his mother, he gently and stealthily opened the entrance door. But after a single step inside, he became dumbstruck.

His pair of blue eyes instantly became dull and his whole body couldn’t help trembling.

Because of his mental strength that is different from ordinary people’s, Long Hao Chen had, generally, a calmer attitude than people of the same age. But at this moment, he couldn’t control himself at all. In from of him was the most unimaginable scene he could ever dream of.

Bai Yue was in the courtyard, but was seated on a man’s lap. This man was the one who had a place second only to his mother’s in his heart; the one who enabled him to become, within a single year, a Standard Knight. Teacher Xing Yu.

“You, you[2]… …” Long Hao Chen stood there, completely speechless; his mind was completely blank at this moment.

“Chen Chen.” Bai Yue tried to stand up from Xing Yu’s lap, but he suddenly held her in his arms and a thin light appeared, making her seemingly unable to move and even to speak.

Xing Yu stood up, moving Bai Yue on the side, and gave a cold look to Long Hao Chen.

“Why? Why are you bullying my mother?” Long Hao Chen stood there, shouting hysterically. Right after, he took out his pair of refined-iron swords. His eyes had become very red.

Xing Yu’s wrist slightly moved and used a mysterious trick. In his right hand appeared a bamboo sword. With his left hand placed behind his body and his sword’s tip turned towards the ground, he faintly said: “Come.”

There was nothing left of the excited mood Long Hao Chen had been in; instead, despair, agony, hate, and all sorts of negative feelings were rising in him.

“Aah!!!” Long Hao Chen let out a cry, charging towards Xing Yu. This time, he didn’t use any skills, just swinging his both swords, going all out against Xing Yu.

He didn’t know Xing Yu’s actual strength nor his speed at all; in fact, it was impossible for him to match his teacher. However, Teacher bullied Mother and because he discovered that there was this kind of matter between the two people who had the biggest places in his heart, there wasn’t an ounce of reason left in him.

Bang — —

With a little swipe from the bamboo sword in Xing Yu’s hand, it was as if Long Hao Chen was crushed by a mountain; he was sent flying backwards, falling in the courtyard.

“What did I teach to you? Regardless of what kind of foe you are facing, even if it is me, you have to remain calm.” said Xing Yu faintly.

At this moment, Long Hao Chen still listened to his lesson: his body crawled and rolled on the ground; his heart was filled with hate and he felt betrayed; all the blood in his whole body seemed to be burning. He charged once more without the least bit of hesitation.

[Pure White Edge], [Thorny Charge]. Using an enhanced charge, he launched his most powerful attack.

However, it was completely useless.

Xing Yu used spiritual energy at the same level as Long Hao Chen’s. He had a mere bamboo sword in his hand, and it was a very thin one, but it hit at the weakest spots on Long Hao Chen’s sword that was swung at full power.

The bamboo sword collided and the shock reached both of Long Hao Chen’s hands. His iron swords fell on the ground, letting out two Puff sounds. Long Hao Chen also fell back, his bottom sitting on the ground.

“Argh — –” It didn’t stop at that. Long Hao Chen, still in pain, even without weapons, charged like a mad tiger once more towards Xing Yu.

Xing Yu’s brow wrinkled, the bamboo sword thrust forward straight towards Long Hao Chen’s stomach. However, Long Hao Chen didn’t even try to avoid it and directly jumped towards the sharp point of the sword.

Xing Yu had a fright; although it was only a bamboo sword, it was still sharp. Without anything protecting Long Hao Chen’s body, even if he wasn’t killed, he would still be greatly wounded. Thus, he subconsciously stopped the bamboo sword and let Long Hao Chen dash against his body.

Without hesitation, Long Hao Chen bit Xing Yu’s arm.

At Xing Yu’s level, it would have been easy to get rid of him, but he didn’t move. Letting Long Hao Chen’s teeth ruthlessly sink into his arm, his only reaction was the one of wincing slightly.

Previous Chapter, Next Chapter

1. I am sure I didn’t mistranslate. But isn’t it contradictory, then, will you ask? Because magical beast are supposed to be stronger then humans at the same step. Well two suppositions:
-either magical beast that can qualify to become a mount/companion are (sometimes) weaker; seems legit because to be tamed, it is logical that the beast shouldn’t be too ferocious.
-or higher step vocations become stronger than magical beasts of the same step.

2. (TL: the first you is at singular form and the second one is at plural form)

          • totokkk

            O.O really? I tried at the beginning and I didn’t succeed, personnally. It is supposed to be set at one IP = one answer

  • Leehar

    First then?

    • totokkk

      Yeah, thanks for your fidelity and your devotion, Leehar! 🙂

  • Kylar

    Thank you very much for the chapter! 😉

    • Kylar

      So they were ‘getting it on’ and he misinterpreted, or what did that exactly say in the original?

      She was sitting on his leg, or lap? Kinda weird… but I guess it was the latter and he caught them.
      Kinda wondering if he just took advantage of her or what exactly the relationship is.

  • Yuzu

    Thx for the chap! 😉

  • Leehar

    I don’t actually think the cliffhanger is too bad.
    We can kinda guess what’s happening between his mother and teacher

  • AGodsLife

    wow, when you said there was going to be a bigger cliffhanger than the part 1 release i was terrified. I was thinking of all the terrible things that could have happened to his mother, but in the end its probably just a lesson from his teacher or something. Words cannot describe what i was thinking no matter how irrational because i have read manga where really messed up things happen, so this is like the most unstressful cliffhanger that could affect his mother so i am sooooo happy the author didn’t do something horrible.

    • totokkk

      Wow, you’re not sensible to the same things as me then, guys :o, are you unable to worry about the poor Baibai-mama? :'(.

  • Ark

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • ZaX

    thanks for the translations!
    after spoiling myself from the manhua… can’t wait to see what will happen after this

    • Glitner

      Vould not suprise me if he is the father and in the manga its obviously that his mother are realated to the knights somehow cuz she knows how hard the training he actually is ,vouldent suprise me there either if she is a former knight that got wounded somehow …..Oooor they are both just horny

  • Thanks for the new chapter!

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

  • tracktor

    Thanks‼

  • Anish Kumar

    thanks a lot

  • Avon

    Luke, I am Your Father?

    • Avon

      And thanks for the chapter.

  • Arthur

    Well that was…. Can’t wait to see how this gets explained maybe it’s gonna be a Dark Vader moment lol thanks for the chapter.

  • jacobpaige

    I’ve been thinking it for awhile now, but now I’m certain. His teacher is his father. Though forcibly creating a misunderstanding for training purposes is dick move even for a cold-hearted, good-for-nothing, piece-of-shit dad like him. Even with his hell-instructor persona taken into consideration.

    And where is the girl knight during all of this? She has to see her little brother being bullied. She can’t possibly be okay with that.

    The worst part is, he’s definitely going to get away with this. The hero will forgive him (whenever he finally learns the truth), he’ll never feel even slightly guilty and there won’t be any real consequences unless he goes out of his way to create them himself.

    I truly hate developments like this. They feel extremely forced and are almost always completely unnecessary for anything other than a cheap grab at people’s emotions by the author. Especially when the hero finds out the truth. It just makes me want to kill the teacher even more (even though he’s usually dead or dying at this point) and beat the MC bloody for being an f’ing, spineless p***y that thinks its okay for his parents to walk all over him for his entire life based on some sh***y excuse that wouldn’t have affected anyone who really loved their family.

    I really hope we get past this fast and don’t come back to it for at least another 200 chapters :/

    • totokkk

      Long is a pretty common name in China, and especially in fantasy, you know. You can be sure of nothing.

    • Elion Chop

      it truly is

  • 1stbaka

    I don’t believe the teacher is his father can’t wait for next part

    • Avon

      Secret lover would be immoral.
      Brother/Sister is…
      So..

  • mercury856

    I am extremely conflicted here, because reading this i’m thinking “Oh that mother f@#$er!!”

    but if he had a father and not a mother and his teacher was a women i would be thinking “ohhh that smooth mother@#$%er” which i know is wrong, but i cant help it.

    • AnalicticPrag

      its interesting how it can’t be go the other way round! XD
      issue of sexist?

  • TheFrostDude

    Thanks for chapter 19!

  • melovehyo

    I don’t understand why did he think his teacher bullying his mom..

    • He’s 10 years-old

      • Ravenous Basilisk

        How ‘was seated on a man’s lap’ can be considered a bullying?
        Even for 10 yo, not to mention that his mentality is clearly better 0_o

      • Ravenous Basilisk

        How ‘was seated on a man’s lap’ can be considered a bullying?

  • Geheim1111

    eh… teacher and mother what are you doing please stop teacher stop touching mother

  • Frun Blumglin

    thanks for the chapter XD

  • anonim

    WTH, why does he suddenly attack his teacher? what a genius kid he is, damn i think it’s the price of his combat prowess, his brain shrinking like shit. he should ask first what the heck are you doing? then look at his mother expresion whether his mother consent with his teacher action or not, it doesnt describe his mother reaction which is essential for the story, and it is totally useless to fight the teacher which clearly out of his league. and i think because the knight does require some bunch of BS heroic trait, it clearly doesnt include brain/intelegence so he’s end up like that

    “Xing Yu stood right behind the door, looking up to the sky. He was the
    only one who could hear these words he let out: “Modesty, honesty,
    compassion, courage, fairness, sacrifice, perseverance, love, justice,
    what does he lack? Is he truly an inborn knight?”” Answer: He lacks Brain

    • AnalicticPrag

      well i would definitely do the same as Long Hao Chen.
      even it seems futile. even it seems idiotic. even if it cost my life
      i would definitely go for the impossible!
      .
      .
      .
      yeah..maybe you are right!
      i bet you have some psychological issues between your mother
      or maybe you don’t love your mother, or you don’t have a mother. or your mother is one like those(sorry to point out).
      anyways.. no ever sane guy wouldn’t enrage seeing their mother getting BULLIED

  • Leafy

    Before i finished reading the chapter, when the MC entered his house and “His pair of blue eyes instantly became dull and his whole body couldn’t help trembling.”, for a moment i couldn’t help thinking “Did someone kill his mother and now he sees the horrible scene of her being dead?”
    I’m both glad and not glad to find out his teacher is his father.

  • Avarrencus

    well, I wouldn’t do the same thing,
    Thanks for the chapter~

  • Ronald Wood

    wow teach you porking his mom

  • KenKen

    Hao Chen just has the biggest shock of the day. Came home happy and with a excited mood to suprise his mom but instead the first thing he saw was see his “mother” sit on his “teacher” ‘s lap.

    Thnx for the chapter.

  • Xegqu

    Thanks for the chapter

  • MysticBliss 17

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • MysticBliss 17

    I never did quite understand this chapter. When I read this approximately 5 months ago I was confused. Still confused.
    Does he feel betrayed by the thought of the two most important people in his life having an affair? Or does he seriously believe his teacher was bullying his mother? I don’t understand his definition of “bully.” Or is this a mature child’s mindset that I never had the chance to experience?

    • Neriph

      It was mentioned in the earlier chapters that his mother was harassed because of her beauty. The town forced her and hao chen to live on the outskirts because of this. When hao chen saw his mother with his father (i assume) that hao chen reacted this way because he thought his mother was being harassed by a teacher that he respected.

      • Exactly right, he took it as his teacher taking advantage of his mother.
