Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 202


Chapter 202: Light Elemental Fairy (III)

The traces of pain on Long Haochen’s face seemed to lessen, but as the Saint Spiritual Stove returned to his body, a sudden surge of even more intense pain erupted.

A rich reddish-golden flame melted Long Haochen’s and Cai’er’s first home almost instantly, making him directly fall down to the ground. From the effects of the sudden sunlight fire, what was left of his clothes burned, leaving nothing behind. By chance, that reddish-golden flame formed a perfect screen, making it so that only his silhouette could be seen faintly, making his situation look unclear.

Haoyue stared at Long Haochen, Little Light glaring the most, intensely exuding a surge of helplessness from his eyes, before once again lying down on the ground, and closing his six eyes. A ball of similar sunlight fire appeared above Haoyue’s head, moving rhythmically.

But at that last moment, everyone could be said to be quite relaxed.

Chen Ying’er patted her chest, pulling McDull who was hiding behind her into her arms, “The fusion with a spiritual stove is actually so frightening?! Even though this Light Elemental Fairy is so little, she is actually so powerful!”

Lin Xin murmured, “Moral quality! This is what moral quality brings! Good things happen to good people. Captain released her, but she chose to come back. What is it if not moral quality?”

Han Yu kept silent on his side. Except for Cai’er, he was the only one who knew about Long Haochen’s status as Scion of Light. Seeing that sunlight fire emanating from Long Haochen’s body, he could only feel full admiration. Indeed, he’s the favorite of nature. It looks like I have to exert more efforts, otherwise, I will never catch up with Master.

However, the envy burning in him only lasted for a few seconds. Immediately sitting cross-legged, he entered the state of meditation. That dense light aura had, after all, a lot of benefits for him.

As for the others, despite not possessing the light attribute, they were still quite familiar with light. Such intense light aura had various benefits for their own cultivation.

Only Cai’er didn’t start cultivating, simply standing there like a sculpture. No one doubted that if anyone dared to approach Long Haochen, Cai’er would immediately intervene.

The pure essence of light released from Long Haochen’s body was absolutely not something the living barracks could contain; all neighbouring soldiers reacted, and Gao Yingjie, who had just left, immediately sensed it.

How could this happen? Could it be that Haochen is fusing with the Light Elemental Spiritual Stove?

With no hesitation, Gao Yingjie immediately turned back, choosing to stay nearby after having inspected the living quarters’ situation. Everyone took a different time to fuse with a spiritual stove. There were different degrees of fusions, producing different levels of affinity with the spiritual stove. It was especially the case for Elemental Fairies whose level of fusion was extremely deep, resulting in an even greater assistance of the Elemental Fairies. And the degree of fusion depended naturally mainly on the approval of the Elemental Fairy to its owner.

As a matter of fact, contracts with these kinds of living spiritual stoves were of the master-servant type. If this kind of contract were to be forced, that Light Elemental Fairy’s power would be weakened. And of course, if the Elemental Fairy didn’t cooperate with its owner, the progress speed of their fusion would be affected.

Thus, no one knew how long Long Haochen would need to fuse with the Light Elemental Fairy. They could only bear it and wait patiently.

Three days passed in the blink of an eye.

The sunlight fire igniting Long Haochen’s body didn’t show any signs of vanishing.

Gao Yingjie made the prompt decision to temporarily suspend the participation of the 1st Demon Hunt Squad in any mission, having them stay at their own living quarters.

No one had any objections about this matter. The first priority of the team was to let Long Haochen fuse with his Light Elemental Spiritual Stove. This was even more important than the first place in the team contest.

On the seventh day, Sima Xian succeeded in breaking through, reaching the fifth step.

But when they reached the tenth day, everyone started to feel impatience. They didn’t only started worrying about the ranking for the team contest, but also about Long Haochen’s safety.

Gao Yingjie told them that generally, fusions with spiritual stoves that are not ranked in the top ten would not last more than seven days. But it had already been ten days, and Long Haochen’s body was still completely covered by the sunlight fire.

“Leader, please protect Haochen. I have something to do.” Cai’er requested of Gao Yingjie.

Gao Yingjie looked distracted, “Do you have to go out?”

“Mn.”

“Go then. Do you want someone to accompany you?” After all, Cai’er was blind.

Cai’er shook her head, “I am okay on my own.” As she said so, she pushed the door open with her blue cane in hand.

Compared to the others, she had an even better understanding of Long Haochen’s situation. If Long Haochen was truly in danger, Haoyue would definitely not be sleeping so steadily on the side. Thinking about this detail, although the others still felt a bit worried about Long Haochen’s situation, they bore it patiently and chose to wait.

Cai’er walked slowly, but didn’t take the wrong way, directly heading down, before being stopped by a soldier.

“I am Cai’er from the 1st Demon Hunt Squad, and demand to meet Commander Lan Yanyu.” Cai’er’s voice was cold, but her frail figure and expressionless eyes made her appear lonely and desolate.

Blocking her path, a soldier raised his brows, “Sorry, but it’s not like anyone can conveniently go meet Commander Lan.”

The recent demon offensives had weakened to some extent, and although the war was still going on, the atmosphere in Exorcist Mountain Pass was already not as tense as in the past. But since the military chief Sheng Lingxin was currently unable to command the armies, Lan Yanyu, already acting as the leader of the mage regiment, naturally had an even greater responsibility.

“Then I’ll go to her on my own.” Cai’er’s bamboo cane tapped the ground. After slightly lifting her head, a concentrated killing intent immediately emerged from her.

Before her, the soldier felt his whole body trembling, and took a few steps back out of fear of falling to the ground otherwise.

But Cai’er’s killing intent wasn’t directed at him, and ascended to the sky, skyrocketing like a grey cloud of smoke.

Releasing such murderous spirit without restraint in the scope of the area below Exorcist City was not something anyone dared to do. More importantly, Cai’er’s killing intent was directly coming from the Spiritual Stove of Samsara, surpassing any ordinary assassin in purity and sharpness.

After a short time, the officers reacted and a few black-clad silhouettes rushed out, arriving in front of Cai’er.

“Miss?” A few black-clad men advanced from behind Cai’er. Their expression changed greatly, and they saluted Cai’er respectfully.

“Take me to see Commander Lan Yanyu.” Cai’er’s voice remained as cold as before.

Exorcist Mountain Pass was considered to be the Assassin Town, location of the Assassin Temple. Maybe common soldiers didn’t know her, but those assassins surely did.

“Cai’er, how… how is it that you came?” Seeing the young girl, the exhausted Lan Yanyu immediately became nicely surprised. But seeing Cai’er’s frail body, she couldn’t help but feel some pain for her.

“How are things for him?” Cai’er asked indifferently.

“Are you asking about your father?” Lan Yanyu looked blank, feeling great exultation in her heart.

Cai’er didn’t say anything, and didn’t nod, but simply stood there calmly.

Lan Yanyu made haste to reply, “He is already awake. Only, you also know about the aftereffects of the Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood, he is now…”

“It’s okay since he’s not in danger.” Cai’er turned around, her cane tapping on the ground as she walked in the other direction.

The Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood had another secret, it was that when fully used, it had a probability of 1 chance out of 1000 to turn the user into an idiot upon coming back to his senses.

“Cai’er.” Lan Yanyu called out to her, her voice filled with worry.

Cai’er stopped her steps, her back still turned towards her mother, “Is there anything else?”

“You… Won’t you come with me to see your father?”

Cai’er stood there calmly, and after taking ten silent breathes, she lightly nodded her head, “Okay.”

Almost immediately, tears dropped from Lan Yanyu’s beautiful eyes.

It had been eleven years, since their three years-old daughter was taken from them, and spent two years in a coma. Ever since then, she had just been training, cutting all ties with them, just as if they became strangers. And this… this is the first time! Despite the fact that she was as cold as before, she still agreed to see Lingxin. This is proof that we still exist in her heart.

“Good… Good. Let me accompany you.”

At this moment, the demon offensive had just been repelled, and the city walls of Exorcist City were temporarily tranquill.

Lan Yanyu felt eager, and even tried to take advantage of the situation by reaching for her daughter’s hand. But Cai’er’s did a soft dodging motion, increasing the distance between the two of them.

“I know the way.” Having grown up in this town, she was very familiar with the place.

Lan Yanyu didn’t insist, wiping the tears from her face, and blindly followed Cai’er. By her side, she watched her somewhat slow-moving daughter who walked forward quite unsteadily, and her tears couldn’t help but fall down once again.

She was still just a child! But she inherited such a burden, suffered far too much pain. And she was so thin! Lan Yanyu really wanted to pamper her daughter, holding her in her arms. But she knew that Cai’er wouldn’t let herself be hugged.

Mother and daughter walked for almost half an hour before arriving at their house. This courtyard belonged to the Assassin Temple, but ordinarily, Sheng Lingxin rarely returned to their residence. The absolute majority of the time, he would stay in his office, but after using the Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood, his current situation had to be kept secret. No one was allowed to find out, so he had naturally been sent back to rest here, at the place where Cai’er grew up.

The blue cane tapped on the ground in succession, producing repeated “du, du, du” sounds. Each of this sounds cut right into Lan Yanyu’s heart.

Without need for Lan Yanyu to say anything, Cai’er could imagine where Sheng Lingxin was. After passing through the courtyard and entering the back garden, just as she was walking forward unhurriedly, a sound interrupted her footsteps.

“Oh, elder sister, you came back. Who is this big sister?” These childish words were spoken by an ordinary grownup voice, which was enough to give anyone an incomparably strange sensation.

Cai’er slowly turned around. She was blind, but she sensed that the speaker of these words was in front of the door. Silently, she looked at him.

“It has been seven days since your father lost consciousness. He is going to recover a year of memories every day. Now, he recovered his memories up to his five or six years-old self. If he knew that you agreed to come back and see him, he would definitely be in great joy.”

Lan Yanyu said, somewhat choked with emotions.

Cai’er silently walked over to Sheng Lingxin, and suddenly felt at a loss, completely unsure of what she should say to her father with only the memories of a five years-old child.

“Big sister, can you accompany me to play together?” Sheng Lingxin stood up, gripping Cai’er’s hand and swaying it.

Cai’er looked blank, but she didn’t struggle free from his hand. Deep in her heart, some soft emotions seemed to have been stirred up.

    Thanks for the chapter

    • popabogdan

      PS: We saw it, e-mail saw it too :>

      • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

        saw what? 😮
        TELL ME *shakes him like a madman*

        • RobertTheAddled

          Typo in the release that said chapter 203 rather than 202.
          No big deal as things go, but had hopes up

  • agila0212

    wow, the end was a little heartbreaking scene

  • -kirito.zero-

    oh my, didn’t see that coming! 🙂

  • RobertTheAddled

    And here I DID spot that and was stunned at the though of a double release…
    Many thanks for the chapters. I’m really looking forward to seeing where this world is taking us.

  • Ewilan

    Merci pour le chapitre

  • gg

    So 1 in 1000… would they kill him to retrieve back the spritual stove if he ever becomes an idiot? Since it would be a waste.

    • Injamam Ul Haq Bivu

      it did happen to him but it seems u can regain it as is explained here

      • Majk

        Right now he is in the normal state that you enter after using it. If The 1 in 1000 chance would have happened he would have been crippled for life and they would probably kill him or at least take away his spiritual stoves, weapons and other things.

        • Jonathan Hurd

          I believe what the Chinese describes as ‘idiot’ in America we would usually call a ‘vegetable’ or ‘brain dead’. He was in a coma but still managed to wake up with his reasoning and is recovering more.

          • gg

            No it would mean that he would be mentally handicapped, not in a coma. Just as Majk mentioned, right now he’s in the normal state after its use.

          • gg

            I mean he’ll probably be in a coma after using the stove, but instead of regaining his memories he’ll be mentally challenged. So in other words would they turn on their comrade to retrieve the stove.

          • Majk

            Honestly yes I think that they would especialy if you cansider how strong he got when he uses the stove. Sure its riski but it is basicly a get out of trouble card. I mean jsut imagine if someone on a highier step where to use it

        • SStoves

          If I remember correctly the only way to part with spiritual stoves is when the host dies. So crippled equals death plus grave robbing.

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro and sponsors!

  • Varler

    This was unexpected to me. I didn’t think that Cai’er would visit her parents so soon.

    • Matthew Mather

      Maybe her “little idiot’s” ridiculously good nature is finally rubbing off, in combination with LHC’s urging to visit her parents.

      Either way it’s a good thing, seeing her father in such a state my help her to some degree reconcile.

      “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” by Lewis B. Smedes

      holding onto grudges isnt good for yourself, besides forgiving is more for you than them.

      • The Dragon King

        It’d be nice (well not really but interesting and probably good for cai’er) if as an act of good will her parents tried to recreate and go through the hard ships she went to to show how much they care (well maybe after this the dad wont have to, he got some brownie points for treating LCH so well and for thinking of LCH Dad as his idol). Like the mom could blind fold herself for as long as cai er is and is going to be blind, then maybe clip her nose for as long as cai’ er couldnt smell (not counting recently cuz technically they didnt put her through that it was her own decision) and so on.

        • Robin

          I don’t think them doing this would do much good. She is too stubborn. But she surely did the first step in a new direction and might be more open to see her parents’ side of the coin. LHC’s goodwill rubbing off on her, in my opinion, is a good thing.

          • The Dragon King

            She may be stubborn but even she is kinda fair and she would notice her parents are definitely trying or at least LCH wpuld and maybe he’d convince her to meet them halfway or she’d do it herself

          • Robin

            Well, as we have seen there are already changes occuring within her or she wouldn’t have agreed to see her father. We already had a good look at her parents’ characters who really can be overbearing. The effects of the Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood gives her a chance to meet her father on neutral ground. I guess she doesn’t really know him because as a three years old child you can’t really grasp the character of a person. And afterwards she was not inclined to involve herself with them. I assume her father to her is only the strict and famous stranger who let her down. It is a nice twist that she gets to see him as a child before all the burdens of obligation weighed him down. An unclouded insight into her parents’ personalities and feelings is something she needs more than any pretense of trying to sympathize with her suffering.

          • The Dragon King

            Like you said seeing her father as a child is a good twist and as this goes on she may be able to see what he was like when she started hating him and when she was 3 and all that stuff happend. Also i dont think the parents really did much in her life, i thought the grandfather trained her cruelly with the temple and her parents just didnt save her. Oh and i wonder what wouldve happened to LCH if the knights knew he was the scion of light when he was young instead of keeping it a secret.

          • Robin

            It is still unclear who played which role in Cai’ers training but she was clearly sacrificed for the greater good, or evil, considering. Her parents valued this higher goal more than her or they would still have fought the decision. Nevertheless, I assume that even if they had opposed the decision it wouldn’t have changed anything. Not to mention that it is an honor to be the parents of the Saint Daughter I don’t see her parents wallow in this “honor”. I think their regret is honest.

            Sheng Yue is another matter. He seems to be truly concerned for her, and not only because she is the Saint Daughter but also because she is his great-granddaughter. I won’t dare to speak of love but he cares one way or the other,

            Well, the training could hardly have been more strict and sometimes torturous than the one he received from his father and teacher. I think it was mentioned that the assassins have a special method to detect talent earlier than other occupations so his training would probably not have started earlier. But there would have been a big danger of him being pampered or shielded profusely. They surely wouldn’t have let him keep the crippled Haoyue. 😉

          • The Dragon King

            Well if he threathed to kill himself theyd let him do whatever the hell he felt like. Also i thoguht it said somewhere that her grandfather took her away for training. Idk maybe i was wrong

          • Robin

            Yeah, her great-grandfather took her away and put her into the cave with the stove. And I am sure he supervised her later training. Even as Saint Daughter of Samsara she probably won’t be able to oppose him in important things, considering his high status.
            Maybe, but it is hard to guess. So far we know too little about the inner workings of the Knight Temple and their usual fostering of geniuses. But the little summoners fiance, I think his name was Wengzhao, is an example for a well known genius of the Knight Temple turning out quite arrogant until Cai’er set him straight. ^_^

          • The Dragon King

            No he wasnt arrogant and really cai er was the one in the wrong since her reason was becuase he hurt LCH but LCH hurt himself more than wengzhao did and the fact that she got away with that means that as long as LCH did his training he could get away with anything too.

          • Robin

            Mh, in my opinion he was a little arrogant in general, but that depends on opinion.
            I don’t think LHC could get away with anything. Remember that their mythril knight leader wanted to reprimand him and wouldn’t even have abstained from hitting him? And he knows of his special status! LHC will get away with much but he doesn’t have a carte blanche. And that is a good thing.

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • Gio

    Thanks for the chapter!!! Caier know abaut LHC is the sion of light??from what time???O.o

    • watz97

      no idea, maybe is because her senses are more sensitive than a normal person. i dont remember him ever telling her

      • Not the only one, might have been a typo?

    • Robin

      In chapter 151 Yang Haohan tells Sheng Yue about Long Haochen’s identity as Scion of Light. Cai’er overhears their conversation so she knows. Feel free to reread the chap to see it in detail. ^^
      A very attentive reader answered this question for me as well since I was also surprised at first.

      • gio

        Woow thank you!!! I’ll do what you advise me 😉
