Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 232

Chapter 232: Princess Yue Ye (II)

Yue Ye lifted up her hands, waving her right hand’s fingernail and instantly streaking it against her left wrist. Immediately, a droplet of dark-red-colored blood gushed out, dripping from her pure white wrist’s skin.

Seeing the blood flowing out from her wrist, Long Haochen and Cai’er both had a great surprise.

High ranked demons were capable of taking an appearance very similar to humans’ but a few of their characteristics stayed different from humans’. And the only really important external difference between demons and humans lied in their blood.

No demon, regardless of whichever race they belonged to, would have red-colored blood. Some would have purple-colored, blue-colored, green-colored or black-colored blood, but none had red-colored blood.

Yue Ye used action to prove her identity. Since her blood was red, she couldn’t be a real demon.

After she wiped the wound on her right hand, blood stopped flowing down, and Yue Ye declared to Long Haochen, “More accurately, I am of mixed human and demon blood. My mother was a human, and outside of the heritage I gained from my father, I inherited from my mother’s human blood. Thus, I can be considered as human in a greater part, and I am not afraid of telling you that my father is precisely the current Moon Demon God. Only, because of my blood heritage, I didn’t gain the qualification to succeed him as the next Moon Demon God, which is why I became the president of the Yue Ye chamber of commerce.”

At this point, she suddenly revealed a gentle smile, but this coquettish smile carried a hint of sadness.

“I am a qualified freelance merchant, and deep inside, I don’t feel a sense of belonging for demons nor humans. Thus, I will not help humans to deal with demons, nor will I help demons to deal with humans. But you are different: if not for your prompt appearance, I would only be a corpse by now. Regardless of the goal you had when intervening, it doesn’t change the fact you are my lifesavers. For this reason, I want to tell you that leaving me alive will be of more use than killing me.”

Arrived to this point, Yue Ye stopped over and gazed at Long Haochen with a deep glance, “Captain Long, you are a very smart person. As the Moon Demon God’s daughter, princess of the Moon Demon Clan, even though I don’t have the right of inheritance to the position of demon god, my position within demons is still important. Killing me will not get you any contribution points, but sparing me will be of great help for the execution of your future missions against demons. You are my lifesavers, and I will remember this fact forever.

Of course, I know that it’s hard for you to believe empty promises. You are a Demon Hunt Squad, and in all likelihood, will have some restricting methods. Go ahead and use them against me before running away. Regardless of whether it is for the sake of preserving my own life or to repay the debt of gratitude I owe you, I can only let you do this. However, I want to request you not to harm Leng Xiao. She’s my friend, and doesn’t know anything of you. She only came to have some fun with me and that’s all. The reason why I knocked her out was that I hoped she wouldn’t learn of all of this, to be able to keep on living.

Looking at Yue Ye, Long Haochen suddenly felt a great terror. Regardless of whether what she said was true, this girl was just too clever. It could be said that she had perfectly figured out all of Long Haochen’s thoughts, as her choice of words just formed the perfect answer to dispel his hesitations.

Shutting his two eyes, Long Haochen asked in a serious tone, “If I keep you alive, of what help will you be to us?”

Yue Ye revealed an humble smile. She knew that she had already persuaded Long Haochen, “No one is more proficient than freelance merchants to help humans penetrate into the demon territory. I know that none of you is willing to wait for my reinforcements from the Moon Demon Clan to arrive, but I have special items to help you to change your appearance, letting you acquire the appearance of demon aristocrats, in addition to many other indispensable items contained in this carriage. The only thing you will need to do is to reach the nearest town, and then, you will get to penetrate into the demon territory and reach your destination effortlessly…”

Long Haochen felt hesitant. In such a situation, the best solution to infiltrate the demon territory covertly would be without a doubt to silence Yue Ye and her group. But he couldn’t help but worry about Yue Ye’s ability. Who knew what kind of magical scrolls or weapons she still had left? Even Cai’er and himself didn’t have the assurance to be able to deal with her and to retreat indemn.

More importantly, Yue Ye wasn’t a mere barbaric demon. Sparing her would be extremely advantageous for the future development of their Demon Hunt Squad. These benefits made Long Haochen feel extremely hesitant.

“Haochen, I want to speak to her on my own.” Cai’er, who had been seated by Long Haochen’s side all along, suddenly spoke.

Although Long Haochen was surprised, he still nodded in response, “Okay.”

Cai’er waved her hand to Yue Ye, “Follow me.”

Seeing Cai’er’s limpid and unsentimental eyes, Yue Ye suddenly felt a crack in her original extreme self-confidence. She suddenly felt that this girl standing by Long Haochen’s side and carrying a veil was a lot more dangerous than him.

Although Long Haochen was powerful and extremely intelligent, she could still convince him, but Cai’er just stood there was just like a cold and expressionless blade, that might stab her at any time.

Yue Ye glanced at Long Haochen, and seeing no reaction from him, felt inwardly dejected about it, but still followed Cai’er.

Cai’er led her to a nearby place, roughly twenty steps away, before stopping and turning, looking at Yue Ye face to face.

“Seeing that you possess some human blood heritage, we were lenient towards you, but trying to pull off any tricks will be of no use, aside from bringing your life to an end.”

As she said so, Cai’er’s left hand suddenly moved, directly shooting up at Yue Ye’s chest.

Yue Ye was startled and unconsciously tried to dodge this ‘attack’, but Cai’er suddenly became illusory, and immediately, Yue Ye felt as though everything that surrounded her body disappeared, only letting place to inexhaustible desolation.

What’s that power? Yue Ye felt greatly alarmed, to the extent that the integrality of her bones felt as cold as ice, the surroundings turning grey. Next, a little ice-cold hand left a mark on her chest.

Feeling a sharp presence against her chest, Yue Ye screamed miserably, and in a flash, her whole body fell down.

After arriving rapidly, this murderous intent also disappeared rapidly. Right after this grey scene vanished, Cai’er appeared once again in front of her, as if nothing had happened at all.

Yue Ye felt dull as she looked at that black-clad girl, only wondering whether she would have been able to avoid that blow just now at her peak state.

The answer was not certain. Perhaps could she have a chance in a long-distance battle, but in such a distance, even if her strength was even greater, she would still have been unable to avoid this attack. What a strong assassin! It’s actually no wonder that she managed to wound that Golden Birdy Demon. She’s actually not the least weaker than this Long Haochen! Staring with great attention and feeling the changes on her own body, Yue Ye turned pale with fright, because she discovered with shock that a sort of needle had really been left near to her heart. It was a small, entirely grey-colored, and sparkling penetrative needle. A very little split was left in front of her heart; this was clearly a little needle formed of condensed spiritual energy. Outside of the coldness that occasionally came through, it didn’t seem to be of any harm to her body.

But this feeling clearly only existed on the surface. How could such a thing placed on her heart be really totally harmless?

Yue Ye’s expression became uglier. She could only be said to be extremely intelligent: having seen through Long Haochen’s benevolent character, she had suggested Long Haochen to restrict her own body, and felt quite lucky to be confronting him. But now, this feeling of luckiness clearly didn’t exist anymore.

Cai’er indifferently declared, “Let me give you an advice: don’t try to remove the restriction I left in your body. I am the only one able to remove it in this world. Even the Demon God Emperor cannot possibly get rid of it, and having him try out his luck will only leave a corpse behind.”

From how Yue Ye heard it, this wasn’t a threat, as Cai’er’s voice was very calm, but a mere description of the real facts. In addition, she was quite knowledgeable and experienced, and this sort of restriction wasn’t something she had never seen before.

Cai’er turned around and advanced, returning to Long Haochen’s side. Yue Ye stood up from the ground, placing her right hand on her left chest, gasping for breath as her look directed to Cai’er was filled with terror.

Cai’er nodded to Long Haochen, telling him a few words, and Long Haochen nodded in response before looking at Yue Ye, “We accept your proposal. Please give us these things that could be of help to us now. I will spare your life and Leng Xiao’s”

Yue Ye’s face was pale, “Then, how can this restriction be removed?”

Cai’er gave a calm reply, “As long as you can meet me once a year, and that I stay safe and sound, this restriction will never break out. If you want this restriction to be completely removed, it will only be possible after demonkind’s total annihilation.”

“You…” Yue Ye finally broke out in anger.

Cai’er coldly swept a glance, “Are you qualified to have any objection?”

Yue Ye took a deep breath, calming her rage down. She didn’t want to die, and it was only natural. In this world, anyone would treasure his own life.

“I understand.” As she said this, the ruby-colored ring in Yue Ye’s finger glinted, and a thing after another was set free from it, and she explained their uses to Long Haochen and Cai’er.

A minute later, Long Haochen recovered these goods Yue Ye gave them.

“Thanks a lot for your assistance. If one day, you feel inclined to join humanity’s side, I believe that it will be a very good thing to us. Don’t worry about this restriction placed on your body; if one day, you let us see your loyalty towards humanity, we will remove it for you. This place isn’t safe, you should leave as soon as possible.”

Yue Ye nodded in silence, looking at Long Haochen before looking at Cai’er. The brilliance in her eyes rose and fell, as a distressed expression was formed by her brows, giving her a lovely yet pitiful look.

“Can you help me on some matter before you leave, please?” Yue Ye pleaded in a low voice.

  • Care

    Woohoo!! Thank you ever so much!!

    • Care

      I love this story so much. Thank you for continuing to translate!!!

  • Alex Drake

    Cai’er is RUTHLESS! I love her all the more for it

  • Argos

    Yue Ye coldly swept a glance, “Are you qualified to have any objection?”


  • lordcattank

    thank you very much for the chapter

  • VanillaCustardPie

    Thank you~

  • uberfridgeking

    Cai’er Subtle as always.

    • Vivec

      so subtle she makes a freight train look like a chameleon

  • Jonathan Hurd

    Waifu don’t mess around. Let this be a lesson don’t try to cheat her husband or else….

  • Zeth

    Thank you very much Totobro!

  • Robin

    It is okay if she sees Cai’er once a year and Cai’er stays unharmed. Leave it to our favorite assassin to everlastingly enslave a demon princess with direct family ties to the second strongest demon god. I love the scene. She definitely is the ultimate shadow to Haochen’s light. ^___^

    • Blaxus

      After all, the stronger the light, the darker the shadow.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      Looking forward to seeing how this relationship advances as time passes, hehehe. Sadly we know that LHC is not going to be willing to take too much advantage of someone just because they have her life in their hands.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Yue Ye coldly swept a glance, “Are you qualified to have any objection?”
    Should be Cai’er

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter TL and sponsors

  • ZaX

    At least Cai’er is there to make hard decisions. Thanks for the chapter

    • Xias

      I think LHC would have made that decision, too, if he had such a powerful restriction at hand.
      But my guess is that as a knight who is alligned to “light” he just doesn´t have any restriction that couldn´t be sensed by demons and removed by someone like Yue Ye´s father.
      After all his light attribute is something that can´t be found among demons and their descendants so if his energy would be inside Yue Ye´s body it would be immediately be noticed.

      Only Cai’er as the saint daughter of Samsara and assassin alligned to “darkness” would have knowledge about such a strong restriction that can´t be easily found and removed by demons as its own attribute is “darkness”, too, and therefore probably somehow similar to the dark attributed demonic energy and hence hard to differentiate from Yue Ye´s own energy.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I don’t think LHC would ever make a restriction that harsh considering his character. As Yue Ye figured he has a naturally kind character. I mean he isn’t going to oppose Cai’er doing it, but I don’t think he would personally implement it.

        I’m not 100% sure that Cai’er really has an elemental affinity towards darkness. She has been healed by light magic at least once in the story i am pretty sure so that would point to her not being that affinity. The reason I would think that no one else can remove it is because it is probably materialized killing intent which only the Spiritual Stove of Samsara lets her control. So anyone else trying to mess with that kind of material is not going to have the specialization to remove it without activating the effect.

        • reaper_unique

          I believe it would something like this.
          LHC is a smart young fellow and knows that the princess is only looking out for herself.
          If he could, he would certainly try to find a way to bind her to him in a way that would fit with his convictions and beliefs. However, since he doesn’t have one, his only option would be to accept the princess word.

          Of course Cai’er isn’t stupid either, especially when it comes to her man. Thanks to her peculiar set of skills which she gather throughout her career as an assassin she created the grey road.

  • Ravenbrand

    “Yue Ye coldly swept a glance, “Are you qualified to have any objection?””

    Wouldn’t that be Cai’er?

    • That’s it, thanks. Fixed

  • Dain

    Ah~ This is getting better and better~~~!

    I’m sort of rooting for a “everyone make peace and share the world” ending since I’m a sucker for all that jazz… Like, LHC goes all Messiah and does the “light” cleanse for all demon kind same as what he did for Toothless(err)Hao Yue… AND! this seems to be a first step towards that–of sorts anyhoo~

    Also, if memory serves, totobro is also hosted by WuxiaWorld right? Or has that arrangement changed? Perhaps you need a bit more memory so the site won’t shut down for 1-2 hours after a release?

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think what might end up happening is that LHC and Austin Griffin return the demons home world (assuming thats where Austin Griffin comes from since all the demons know of him) to actual hospitable conditions and then send the demons back to their land.

      As for WuxiaWorld I believe Totobro is currently running his site on his own since it inspires him more this way. Hes looking into the server issues.

      • Robin

        NIce theory, I like your way of thinking. THis would be a godd solution for the problem. And demons with enough intelligence and the will to coexist could chose to stay.

        I admire that he is releasing on his own site. Wuxia is too aggressive for my taste and too crowded as well. Individual novels get lost in the quantity and this is really sad. This novel is too great and Totobro’s work too admirable to be only one between many. Ganbatte, Totobro!

        • Jonathan Hurd

          Only thing I would wonder about if LHC and Austin Griffin do fight to restore Austin Griffin’s world is how the Undead currently staying there will feel about it. From what they were saying I don’t think they’re completely happy with the way things are, or it could be they are worried that just like Austin Griffin ruined the world for the living he could now ruin the world for the undead.

  • Anne1000

    And the only really important external difference between demons and humans lied in their blood.
    -Shouldn’t blood be ‘internal’?
    Thanks TL for another exciting chapter!

    • S.I.U.

      i supose they are referring at what they can “see” as a diference between demons and humans since their external features look exactly the same. But They can see the diference between their Blood color.

    • Robin

      I guess it is something like that:

      And the only undeniably apparent difference between demons and humans was the color of their blood.

  • Avarrencus


  • kitotikattari

    Thank you for the chapter

  • manoucha111

    excuse me i’m new here and i would appreciate it if you told me about the update schedule

    • Koon Agnis

      If the chapters get sponsored (payed for by the readers/sponsors) then we get and update within 24 hours. If not there is a new chapter around 2-3 days. I think there are more specifics like how we get bonus chapters, but that’s the general idea.

      • manoucha111

        thank you so much ^^

    • Robin

      And if there are many chapters sponsored, like 6 at once as we experienced it some time ago, they will be released as fast as the RL and the work on the chaps allow it. Then we got a release every day for 6 days straight. ^__^

      • Jonathan Hurd

        We refer to that time as the Golden Releases.

        • Robin

          Oh yes, and really busy times for Totobro and me but my, they were good!

      • manoucha111

        Yay i’m addicted to this novel

  • OmegaGoodJob!

    Hello, I’ve read some comments about LHC being a Half is it true?,, and her mother is a demon,, and that her mother convert from darkness to light attribute like Hao Yue,, and his father had some issues about this Anan guy who is he?,, and what are the signs that LHC is possibly a Half I read some comments saying about the color of the hair, eyes or the so called EXTREME BEAUTY the he inherited from her mother something like that… Master(s) please ENLIGHTEN ME !!

    • Oathkeeper

      We don’t know the conflict that LHC’s mom and dad were facing but it’ll probably be explained later, you’re just asking to be spoiled.
