Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 211


Chapter 211: Recuperation! Cai’er’s Stove of Samsara!

Scion of Light, Saint Daughter of Samsara. Just now, Chen Zidian mentioned these terms. And the other five finally understood why Chen Zidian would choose their first soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad, and had such high expectations for them.

Two kinds of talents so rare that they never appeared for 2,000 years, had now unexpectedly emerged at the same time, and were part of their team. Although these legendary heroes were formidable, speaking in terms of innate talent, they would probably be poles apart from these two.

The physique of the Scion of Light was something completely new and had never appeared ever before. And the Scion of Samsara from the legends took the Demon God Emperor down by himself! Even though at that time, the Demon God Emperor was already in a rather weak state, it was still a Demon God Emperor!

For these two to have joined the same Demon Hunt Squad, one could imagine its future development…

After no less than a few minutes, Han Yu finally reacted, taking a deep breath, “My grandfather is the Saint Knight Chief of the Temple Alliance, Han Qian. My innate internal spiritual energy was 63, but after I accomplished a retainer contract with Master, I enjoyed the innate talent sharing’s effects, boosting my innate internal spiritual energy up to 80, barely reaching the level of the physique blessed by the heavens.”

“Something like that can be done?” At the side, Sima Xian immediately leapt up, suddenly dashing to Long Haochen’s side and grabbing his hand, “Boss, Captain, do you accept other retainers knights? Make me one please! My eeh… innate internal spiritual energy is 69… So unfair, it’s only a single level apart from 70.”

There was only a single digit of difference between an innate internal spiritual energy of 69 and 70, but to be sure of breaking through from the eighth step to the ninth step, given enough efforts, the prerequisite was an internal spiritual energy of 70. If this prerequisite wasn’t fulfilled, at least ten times the effort would be needed to succeed, and the odds would be quite lower. Of course, the factor of luck was also important.

People with innate internal spiritual energy above 70 were few, let alone those above 80 who were almost bound to reach the ninth step sooner or later. It wasn’t surprising that he immediately became so excited.

Long Haochen revealed a bitter smile, “Let’s wait for everyone to introduce themselves first. There should be no problem about it.”

“But, Master, you already have two retainers. With one more, I’m afraid that…” Han Yu hurried to his side. It wasn’t that he wanted to reject Sima Xian, but the most important thing was to consider Long Haochen’s condition.

Long Haochen shook his head, “No problem. I don’t plan on exercising control over you, and furthermore, my innate mental capacity is high, there should be no problem if I took one more retainer.”

Hearing him say so, Han Yu stayed silent. Long Haochen was after all the Scion of Light, so his circumstances couldn’t be compared with ordinary people’s.

Sima Xian’s excitement immediately went up. Becoming someone else’s retainer wasn’t anything glorious, but the master’s identity was an important factor. After all this time, everyone had an even better understanding of Long Haochen’s temperament. He was after all able to draw the Light Elemental Fairy to him with his merciful heart alone. She profited from it, let alone his own companions. Seeing Han Yu’s unperturbed appearance was proof for that.

“I will introduce myself. I don’t have any deep background: my father was a Berserker from the Warrior Temple, and my mother is an Archbishop of the sixth step from the Priest Temple. As I was very young, father died in a battle against the demons. He was a hero of the Warrior Temple. My holy attribute comes from my mother, but at the same time, I inherited my father’s ability of Madness. This makes me quite a misfit. Mother didn’t wish for me to die on the battlefield like father did, so she raised me into becoming a priest. But I wasn’t able to learn any healing type abilities like a normal priest, while I was on the contrary very fast at learning fighting type abilities. This led to my current situation. Because I have never been trained by any kind of great master since young, I forged my path by myself, and my strength may be a bit lacking compared to yours. Nonetheless, I will definitely do my best in the future to become a Discipline Priest.”

He made himself seem like nothing, but an innate internal spiritual energy of 69 was already a rare kind of outstanding genius within the whole Temple Alliance. To have reached the peak of the fourth step of cultivation at the age of barely 20 years-old and to have entered the fifth step shortly afterwards was not an easy thing to do.

Lin Xin felt gloomy as he said, “Why do I not possess the light attribute as well!? With the existence of such a great thing as the innate talent sharing, it would be great. My grandfather is the auxiliary chief of the Mage Alliance, Saint Mage Tutor and Mage Regiment Captain Lin Chen. But he doesn’t really like me that much. I am pretty much the opposite of Sima Xian: he cannot learn healing magic, while I cannot use offensive magic. But in the fields of alchemy and spiritual energy cultivation, my innate talent is pretty good. With an innate internal spiritual energy of 74, if not for the fact that I cannot use offensive magic, I’d say that big bro is also a genius. But well, let’s only say that big bro has drugs, it’s already just as badass.”

From the foolish way he spoke, everyone couldn’t help but break into laughter. But Long Haochen could faintly see that behind these foolish words, a surge of grief appeared in his eyes. Long Haochen thought to himself that the circumstances of Lin Xin being unable to learn offensive magic could not possibly be as simple as Sima Xian’s. Nonetheless, when it pertains to someone else’s painful secrets, Long Haochen naturally wouldn’t go ask about it.

Wang Yuanyuan declared, “Should be my turn. I don’t have drugs, but I have my strength. I am the one who inherited the Gigantic Divine Soul Shield, and my bloodline is among the most powerful of the Warrior Temple. My great-grandfather used to be a Berserker Warrior of the ninth step, before dying at the hands of the demons. My grandfather was the previous head of the Warrior Temple, also at the ninth step, but he also died, at the hands of the fifth demon god. And my father died together with my great-grandfather on the battlefield. In our family, I am the only successor left.”

Hearing her words, everyone immediately had a serious expression. Her great-grandfather, grandfather, and father all died at the hands of the demons. It was no wonder that Wang Yuanyuan had such a behaviour when opposing demons, fighting as if her life depended of it. Her bloodline had been almost completely wiped out! And although her usual expression was apathetic, the slaughtering intent she gave off wasn’t concealed at all.

“I admire the seniors of the Demon God Slayers, and my goal for life is to be like them. This lady plans to slaughter her way to the demon’s side. Let me give you a warning, this lady doesn’t like men, and will not let herself have any entanglement on the emotional aspect. Except from killing all the demons, I have no other objective.”

Having said so much already, she shot a faint glance at Sima Xian who was still in a state of excitement.

Having heard her words, Sima Xian was startled, the excitement he had from learning about the Innate Talent Sharing weakening quite a bit. Wrinkling his brows, he rapidly came back to his normal state.

“Sis Yuanyuan, there’s no problem about the fact you don’t like men. You still have me, and I don’t like guys either.” Chen Ying’er laughed happily, “All of you have already met my grandmother, secondary head of the Spiritual Temple, summoner at the rank of Spiritual Emperor, Sanshui. My grandfather is in the same fashion the chief of the Spiritual Temple. They insist on marrying me to Yang Wenzhao, so I chose to run away. But I didn’t expect my luck to be so good in the Demon Hunt Selection; I actually summoned a magical beast of the eighth step during the preliminaries. It was so intimidating that no one dared to confront me, and you know what happened afterwards. Let me tell you a secret: Yang Wenzhao is the grandson of Alliance Chief Yang Haohan. He is also someone you have already met in the past: he occupies the post of chief of our Temple Alliance, and is the possessor of the Divine Throne of Protection and Mercy, the Divine Knight of Defense and Strategy.”

Although everyone guessed earlier that Chen Ying’er’s background wasn’t ordinary, her words left them secretly astonished. The Spiritual Temple was the most mysterious of the six, but she was unexpectedly the granddaughter of its chief.

Lin Xin asked with some curiosity, “But how could that thing with your Creature Summoning Gate happen? That’s a summoning magic of the eighth step!”

Chen Ying’er replied, somewhat helpless, “My innate internal energy is rather odd, I am unable to use the numerous other kinds of summoning spells. My grandfather said that I was born with the innate talent of the Body of Chaos. My current situation is unusual because the Body of Chaos comes with important indeterminacy. Before I reach the seventh step, any summoning spell will be a great challenge for me to learn. But if I grow to the seventh step, cultivating the mysteries of chaos, I will instantly become able to use every summoning spell accessible to my step. Reportedly, demons are quite afraid of the people of my kind, so in case they learn of the appearance of a summoner possessing the Body of Chaos, they are bound to send numerous powerhouses to kill him off. Which is why my grandparents insist on connecting me with Yang Wenzhao by marriage. Hmpf, I’m not afraid though. I don’t need Yang Wenzhao to protect me, neither do I need to ask for my grandfather’s or my grandmother’s help.”

A physique causing great worry to the demons? Although they didn’t know what could worry the demons like that, this Body of Chaos was still incomparable to the Scion of Light and the Saint Daughter of Samsara, quite lacking in comparison. But in their little team of seven, they already had three existences of highly special physique.

After Chen Ying’er finished introducing herself, Wang Yuanyuan revealed a bitter smile, “I believe that if we can survive until the day we get that title, we won’t be called a team of misfits anymore…”

On the next morning, the ten newly formed Demon Hunt Squads’ leaders issued an order for all the members of the newly formed Demon Hunt Squads to pack up for traveling, preparing their return to Holy City.

Their return, scheduled for the time after the three months of tests, was shifted to an earlier date because of the great demon armies’ retreat. As a whole, those tests were successful, and the ten newly formed Demon Hunt Squads came back completely intact. They contributed well to the Exorcist Mountain Pass, and obtained ample approval from the Exorcist Mountain Pass’ military as well as the Assassin Temple.

But their time as youths couldn’t be wasted. Without an actual gain they naturally wouldn’t stay there for so long. The end of this time’s tests also signified the start of those ten newly formed Demon Hunt Squad’s real journey. Their most ultimate goal were the Demon God Slayers, who appeared on the continent 300 years ago.

Sheng Lingxin and Lan Yanyu personally sent the ten newly formed Demon Hunt Squads off.

Looking at the girl standing next to Long Haochen, Lan Yanyu’s eyes were already moist. Due to the aftereffects of her husband’s use of the Spiritual Stove of Return to Childhood, their relationship with their daughter finally improved with great difficulty. But having to part with each other once again, as her mother, one could imagine her current pain.

Sheng Lingxin also stood there, looking at their daughter with warm feelings, slightly pursing his lips. He already recovered all his memories, and the ones of his daughter coming to visit him a few times had left a particularly deep impression on him.

The other members of the 1st soldier grade Demon Hunt Squad already followed Gao Yingjie to get on the carriage, so only Long Haochen and Cai’er remained.

“Uncle Sheng, aunt Lan, take care of yourselves.” Long Haochen respectfully bowed before Sheng Lingxin and Lan Yanyu, not with a knight salute but with the bow of someone of the younger generation.

Facing this youth who previously staked his life with him, Sheng Lingxin crossed the distance with large strides, opened up his arms, and gave him a big hug.

“Haochen, thank you.”

These few words were full of emotions. Sheng Lingxin was very clear about the reason for these changes that happened with their daughter. If not for his help, their daughter wouldn’t possibly have opened up like that.

Despite the fact that their time of contact was short, Long Haochen had already conquered Sheng Lingxin with his actions. Could they possibly be fussy when they had this kindhearted and forgiving youth and owner of the physique of the Scion of Light as their daughter’s partner? Yes, they were still young, but so what?

Sheng Lingxin firmly believed that no matter when, Long Haochen would strive to do his best and spare no efforts, to protect their daughter.

Lan Yanyu followed Sheng Lingxin. At the time she hugged Long Haochen, Lan Yanyu’s wistful gaze fell on Cai’er. With a shivering voice, choking with emotions, she asked tentatively, “Cai’er, mommy… Can mommy hug you?”

Cai’er’s face remained as blank as before, but with his sharp senses, Long Haochen saw clearly that her body shivered slightly. She was clearly not as undisturbed as she pretended to be.

“Yeah.” Cai’er gave her a detached reply.

Immediately, Lan Yanyu’s tears were flowing down. Taking a step forward, she suddenly threw herself at her daughter, crying loudly and bitterly.

It was also at that time that Cai’er felt as if something shattered in her heart, as she finally broke the chains that had been restricting her for so long. An indescribable energy burst forth from deep inside her, and on her forehead, a vague flash of black symbols appeared.

Gong–

Under Long Haochen’s and Sheng Lingxin’s attentive watch, the bamboo cane in Cai’er’s hand fell to the ground. Incorporeal grey streams of air suddenly burst out from her body and her two dull and emotionless eyes suddenly took on a deep black color, as if countless rays of dark light illuminated them.

Somewhat sluggish, Cai’er loosened her mother’s one sided embrace. Slowly raising her hands, she herself took the initiative to lightly hug her mother. Her originally pure black world was gradually dyed in various colors. Though this process was slow, each color became more and more distinct in her eyes.

That’s right, just at the split second Cai’er accepted her mother’s embrace the last chains that had been restricting her Spiritual Stove of Samsara finally broke, and she ultimately obtained the real power of the Spiritual Stove of Samsara. At this very moment, Cai’er had recovered her eyesight.

From this moment onwards, she was no longer just a blind girl, but the real Saint Daughter of Samsara who already overcame the loss of her five senses.

The nearby images were distinct, and as Cai’er was embracing her mother, she could see everything surrounding her. She looked at ‘him’ and at her father. And the expression in Cai’er’s eyes became foolish. After the last traces of her former coldness disappeared, her eyes finally became moist.

“Mo… Mother…”

“Father…”

    Now you may ask yourself why I would post this on such a nice and emocional chapter…. ITS TO HIDE THE TEARS WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

    • evilage

      I like this comment
      but hao yue cant eat her due to the blood contract
      hao yue will also die if hao chen dies

      • Majk

        In the last few seconds of his life LHC was shocekd but Hao Yue who died before was able to keep his mind clear and as a last resort used most of his power to keep LHC alive for a few more precious seconds so that he could get revenge on Cai Er while her parents where just watching from the side in disbelif as to WTF is going on

    • Matthew Mather

      that said Cai’er still remembers when she first met LHC and back then many described him as more beautiful than most women, further more she herself acknowledged that he was lying at the time he had stated himself as ugly.

      I’m sure you remember that and are just taking liberty to crack a joke but just in case.

  • Confused

    Well kinda figured something like that would happen. Now kinda curious of her impression would be like after she sees LHC again. Well all in all.. Good chapter and really curious as to find out where they be heading now..

  • r2d5

    imma calling bullshit on this bullshit. srsly, this pussyboy contaminated coolest char in the whole story. 🙁

    • RyokoZero

      It’s the type of Novel… this is normal.

    • Matthew Mather

      She was cool because she was cold hearted and bitchy? It’s not even like her personality is going to fully transform either, people aren’t that simple.

      • r2d5

        When she was bitchy? She were having normal reaction which people should have when some morons practically crippled practically toddler and she deeply cared about those (even if it were only mc for now) who she loved. Now what, she is going to be like mc, who is all about love and getting lube to people who want to fuck him over?

  • JJay

    Does the author think we’ve forgotten about the kiss LHC was supposed to claim from Cai’er after coming back from the battle field where we first saw the three Demon Gods? ‘Cuz I haven’t forgotten!

    (I’m just trying to redirect my tears…)

    • TheKissHasDied(Lunarbdog)

      We all remember but have given up hope of seeing this promised kiss occur.

      • Austin DeWitt

        Someone wasn’t paying attention…. LHC already kissed, he just did it on the forehead. Although it wasn’t the kiss you were expecting a kiss is a kiss.(can’t recall the exact chapter it happened but it was within 15-20 chapters after he made the promise.

  • 3 sponsored chapters? Yes! :’D

    Thank you toto and donators!

  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • k1nk4

    Thanks for the chapter!

  • By laughter I referred to big bro’s talk, his interventions always make me rofl.

  • Xias

    Thanks for the chapter.

    There´s just one issue about the innate spiritual talent sharing:

    Sima Xian´s innate level is 69, Haochen still believes his innate talent to be at level 97 as we were told in the last chapter when Haochen told spoke his past.

    So Haochen should believe the difference between their innate talents to be 97 – 69 = 28 levels.

    As such Haochen should have told Sima Xian that the talent sharing won´t activate with him because the condition is for the master´s innate talent to be at least 30 levels higher than the retainer´s talent.

    To accept Sima Xian as retainer would only make sense if Haochen knew that his innate talent increased to level 99 which he doesn´t know right now.

    • Yep, even I forgot about that detail, but you’re right.
      I guess it can be interpreted as Haochen and Han Yu having forgotten it, since Long Haochen’s reply was kinda like ‘okok, as you want, we’ll see that later, but just let me be for the moment.’

      • Cameron Patel

        Didn’t his Innate talent go up with his new stove? Isn’t it currently 99?

        • Yes, but he’s just not supposed to know about it yet, by now, based on the earlier narration.

          • Matthew Mather

            hopefully the author didnt forget himself and make a mistake and this is all an elaborate ploy to make LHC realize his increase in innate spiritual energy.

      • Robin

        Yep, and don’t forget that only Han Quian can perform the retainer contract with the innate talent sharing. Therefore they can’t do anything without him. I think LHC agreed to ask him to perform the contract and expressed his willingness to support Sima Xian this way.
        If they forgot the rule then Han Quian will remind them and he will surely detect the change in LHC’s level.

        • JJay

          That’s exactly what I was thinking!

      • Xias

        Or the author himself simply forgot about it when writing the chapter.
        I call dibs on the author being at fault here.
        XDDD

    • JJay

      I noticed this too, but forgot to comment about it. I’m sure someone will remind LHC before the contract is initiated or after the contract is official someone says it shouldn’t have worked because of what you said, then he gets tested and everyone finds out LHC is even more kick ass then before.

  • Gohankuten

    Heh so wonder if this means that Yuanyuan and Ying’er will just go and become a lesbian couple and leave the other 3 males on the team to have to walk the rose road lol.

    Also that body of chaos thing is probably the Demons trying to prevent Hao Yue from crossing over since it seems likely that the Demons were survivors of the world that Hao Yue came from where he destroyed before. Really makes you wonder how the whole thing with Hao Yue is going to end in the end.

    • PotatoZero

      That would be kinda stupid and selfish considering she’s among the last of her bloodline

      • Matthew Mather

        get the feeling over time both of them will warm up to the opposite sex. (worst case scenario big bro has drugs… takes on a whole new meaning that way doesn’t it?)

      • Vin

        All the more reason to extend the bloodline

    • JJay

      My guess, at some point Ying’er saves her future husband and they end up together, while Yuanyuan warms up to one of the guys on the team that is not LHC.

  • evilage

    I’m thinking the retainer contract between sima xian there in order for hao chen to discover that his innate spiritual energy has increased

  • Moridain

    The hug! The feels! T_T

    I like that the only way to truly master the Stove of Samsara is not to seal off your heart, but to unlock it. That is a nice touch.

    I don’t doubt she will stay the cool beauty of badass though.

    • Robin

      Isn’t it kind of symbolic that she restrained herself with her hatred and therefore influenced her own impediment? We had the theory that the Spiritual Stove of Samsara not only sparked her hatred with his harsh and restricting trials, but also enforced it later on. And only after she overcame this hatred could she really master the Stove of Samsara and awaken as true Saint Daughter. The next fight will be soooo epic!

      • Matthew Mather

        i wonder as a true saint daughter now will the stove stop punishing her for using it? or rather it said she had fully unlocked the spiritual stove, which also makes me curious if it had any other benefits (like boosting her innate spiritual energy further)

  • Jean-Marie LAUMUNO

    Thank you for the chapter toto and donators you are the best

    • Matthew Mather

      think the donors are doing it more for themselves, but all benefit the same.

  • Iric Alexis

    thanks for the update.
    hmmm….. is the demons afraid of summoner with body of chaos somehow summon Austin Griffin? (now is LHC pet lol)

  • gundam_man

    OMG ;_; she got her eye sight back *sniff*

  • drealicious

    thank you for the great chapter!!

  • Dain

    ;_; Those feels…

  • ZaX

    What strange requirements to unlock the stove. Then again power up! Thanks for the chapter

    • gg

      Not really. It’s quite a big step forward considering what happened. It’s hard to forgive sometimes.

  • Andy W

    It is just my guess, but I think Lin Xin’s inability to learn offensive magic is caused by a traumatic incident where he might have hurt/killed someone. From the chapters translated thus far, Lin Xin only shows feelings of grief when 1) his inability to use offensive magic is brought up (chapter 164 and this chapter) and 2) when he gains some approval from grandfather and starts thinking of his deceased mother (chapter 153). It might be too early in the story to say but I hypothesize that he might have recklessly used magic in the past and accidentally caused the death of his mother, which resulted in his grandfather’s cold attitude towards him. Anyone else think so?

    • Robin

      Yep, highly likely. His personality is ambitious and daring enough for him to make such a mistake as a youth. With his magical talent he should have been tempted to proove something after his awakening. I guess they do this at a similar age than the Knight Temple, so he should have been around ten. Especially with all the powerhouses at his back, if maybe he was kind of pressured by his father and/or grandfather this could really likely lead to such an accident. And who but him would be blamed?

  • michaely5

    kinda hope she doesn’t go completely love-love friendly, i kinda like her cold demeanor

  • Rafał K

    Will be there a next chapter release in 24h!!!

  • KenKen

    Woot she finally recover from being blind…huh does this mean from now on she won’t have the side effect anymore? Hmmm.

  • connivinglamb

    ok haven’t finished the chapter yet, but is it me or is the team literally just a bunch of scabs? i hate to say it but the priest wanted to enter a retainer contract JUST to higher his innate talent. more like “talent”. anyways. but he also didn’t seem to care for the mental burden i just find it deplorable. well that’s my two cents even if im not done yet.

    • connivinglamb

      i retract the previous statement… partially. still though, sometimes i just fucking hate the team members attitudes always so greedy, envious, jealous, hateful and shit i know its a natural human trait but the author leads it on pretty DAMN hard.

  • termt

    “I’d say that big bro is also a genius. But well, let’s only say that big bro has drugs, it’s already just as badass.”
    … Alright, I REALLY can’t imagine Lin Xin actually saying “badass”.
    I feel it doesn’t quite fit, but at the same time it’s hilarious.

  • Kaarme

    Her blindness was always the perfect excuse for Haochen to walk hand in hand with Cai’er. Now that she can see, I hope they won’t simply drop the habit.

  • Jabulani Boynes

    oh oh
