Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 400

Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 400: Foundation Mythril Armored Long Haochen (II)

The Ice Storm was not completely ineffective: even if Ah’Bao was even stronger, he wouldn’t possibly be able to cover all of his allies. Although the Ice Storm had already stopped, every Demon Hunter Remover aside from him was slowed down to a great extent. Three of them even suffered wounds of different severity.

Thus, although Ah’Bao instantly turned a detrimental situation into an advantage, these Demon Hunter Removers weren’t able to counterattack immediately .

Right at this time, a golden glint of light abruptly appeared on the battlefield, carrying an overwhelmingly brilliant aura of light.

Clang! With an ear-piercing explosion, Ah’Bao’s body suddenly stopped in his tracks, and immediately, his blood colored eyes were erupting with violent sparkles.

That’s him!

Spreading his four wings, Long Haochen descended promptly after launching this blow. Yating’s slender figure appeared above his shoulder, aiming a white glint accurately at Ah’Bao. Long Haochen flapped his four wings and appeared at the back of the demons’ ranks. Erupting with Demon Wiping Flash, he enveloped several surrounding demon powerhouses in its range, blocking their attacks. Meanwhile, everyone from the 64th commander grade Demon Hunt Squad arrived and regrouped with the 17th king grade Demon Hunt Squad in this counterattack.

“Haochen!” Tian Qing called out.

Long Haochen shouted loudly, “The enemies are surrounding us on all sides. Immediately break out of their siege, we will be staying behind. I have my own ways to get away from the battlefield, so go now!”

The sudden addition of Long Haochen’s group immediately changed the present situation. The four headed Haoyue rushed forward in large strides, and everyone in the 64th commander grade Demon Hunt Squad was prepared since long before. With the addition of these strong troops, no matter how strong Ah’Bao was, winning would undoubtedly prove to be hard for his Demon Hunter Remover squad alone.

However, as soon as Long Haochen’s group appeared on the battlefield, in all directions of the sky, many glinting lights approached the place fast, and at rough glance, they numbered over fifty.

Encountering Long Haochen again, Ah’Bao currently felt his blood boiling. With a loud roar, a pair of purplish black dragon wings appeared on his back, and after withdrawing from the battle with Tian Qing, he immediately went after Long Haochen.

But Long Haochen didn’t continue to tangle with Ah’Bao. In a flash, his four wings flapped again, dodging him.

“Big brother Tian Qing, quickly go! Otherwise it will be too late!” Long Haochen shouted desperately once again.

Tian Qing replied with a bitter smile, “Haochen, you go. During this battle, the one in command is me. And since I am the current commander, you must listen to me. Quickly go with your team!”

Long Haochen shouted back in fury, “You’re really wasting time! I said that we have the ability to flee from the battlefield. Have you forgotten how I made Cai’er disappear at that time?”

“None of you will be leaving!” Ah’Bao suddenly stopped in midair, not chasing further after Long Haochen. Lifting his right hand, he emitted an orange radiance and formed an orange colored barrier covering everyone present on the battlefield, including the Demon Hunt Removers under his command, as well as Long Haochen and Tian Qing.

Long Haochen felt his surroundings freeze, and he suddenly stopped in the midst of his acceleration. But it was not only him, Tian Qing and the others, along with Ah’Bao and all the other demons were stuck inside, as if everything in this orange space turned immobile.

Emitting a dense glint from his eyes, Ah’Bao stared at Long Haochen with an ardent look, “I will be paying back the shame you brought upon me. Only your blood can wash off this shame. Today, you will definitely die. ”

Long Haochen’s breath was now extremely heavy. He didn’t know which technique Ah’Bao just used, but it didn’t seem like an ability belonging to him. However, this was not important. This technique obviously didn’t make any difference between their enemies and their own side. Perhaps this hinted that the time of confinement wouldn’t be that long, but it was enough in this situation, because during this short while, the demons lying in ambush were approaching.

Those were fifty Demon Hunter Removers; a total of fifty Demon Hunter Removers! This formidable force was nothing they could contend against at the present time. Even escaping would be very difficult. Long Haochen even had no assurance to be able to activate the Eternal Melody for his comrades and himself to escape.

Desperate straits! Right, they were now in absolutely desperate straits.

The choice of joining the battle or not had been up to Long Haochen. He could have lead his own allies to break out of the siege or use the Eternal Melody to escape.

However, even if Tian Qing’s judgement was wrong, how could he possibly give up on his own allies on the battlefield? Thus, he showed up here with no hesitation.

If Tian Qing had listened to his suggestion, and had immediately turned around to break out of the siege with his comrades, perhaps Long Haochen’s group would still have had the chance to leave the battlefield after separating from them. But what Ah’Bao used seemed to be a particular ability of the Star Demons, and now it was already too late.

It was now not only the 17th king grade Demon Hunt Squad that was in a dire situation, but also the 64th commander grade Demon Hunt Squad.

The orange light disappeared gradually, and the Pull ability of the Saint Spiritual Stove still reached Ah’Bao, but he seemed to have no more but a sarcastic look as reaction. The masses of Demon Hunter Removers were already surrounding them on all sides, and an intense darkness filled the air. Powerful undulations of spiritual energy were unleashed from the encircled Demon Hunters that all had ice-cold looks.

The members from the 17th king grade Demon Hunt Squad temporarily paused the ignition of their life energy, all having determined look. Since they couldn’t leave, they would all stay here, and kill their way out. After all, since the day they became Demon Hunters, they were resigned to the fact that their deaths would probably come from the demons’ hands. And this day seemed to have arrived.
“Stand back, all of you.” Ah’Bao suddenly shouted loudly.

From his order, the dragon team’s Demon Hunter Removers drew back, temporarily creating a distance between the Demon Hunters and themselves. Long Haochen and Tian Qing’s two Demon Hunt Squads were gathered together, taking advantage of the opportunity, but the encirclement of the other fifty Demon Hunter Removers had shrunk the distance by a lot.

Sixty Demon Hunter Removers against one king grade and one commander grade Demon Hunt Squad; this was already a battle without suspense. No matter how excellent Long Haochen and Cai’er were, if a crowd battle started, they would only be able to curse at the final results. Of course, by relying on the activation of the Eternal Melody, Long Haochen at least had the confidence to be able to bring along two other people, but how could he abandon his other comrades?

Tian Qing stood upright and unafraid at Long Haochen’s side. He didn’t give Long Haochen any apology, as apologizing wouldn’t do any good. Since the situation was already this dire, there was already no way to make up for his mistake. All he thought of doing now was to sacrifice himself to try to create an opportunity for Long Haochen’s group to escape. However, this was indeed quite too hard. Especially seeing so many powerful demons, particularly that black-clad young man. In the past series of exchanges, even after Tian Qing had ignited the flame of his own soul, in front of his attacks, he could only retreat by defeat little by little. And furthermore, that black-clad young man seemed to have not gone all out yet.

Ah’Bao didn’t give a single glance to Tian Qing, Guardian Knight and most powerful in cultivation among those two teams. His eyes only held Long Haochen and his unforgettable memories of the pain he received from that blow of Long Haochen’s sword, he was never able to forget.

“You are Long Haochen, I’m not mistaken on your name right?” Ah’Bao’s cold voice pierced the hearts of every Demon Hunter like a terrible gust of wind.

These were a whole sixty demon powerhouses. Amongst them, the powerhouses of the eighth step numbered at least six, and they were accompanied by more than fifty powerhouses of the seventh step. Even for an emperor grade Demon Hunt Squad, getting away from here would be no easy thing.

“I am Long Haochen.” Taking large strides forward, Long Haochen exchanged a glance with Ah’Bao. If the current Ah’Bao could be said to be a volcano ready to erupt at anytime, then the current Long Haochen was like a deep and quiet pool. The man and the demon were standing face to face, their gazes meeting each other in the air, and Long Haochen didn’t yield in the slightest.

Ah’Bao furrowed his brows, declaring, “The last time we met in the Illusory Paradise, you left me with unforgettable memories. I really didn’t think that you would reappear so fast, and in this kind of situation. I wonder if you have other tricks to save yourself from an unescapable death this time as well?”

Long Haochen calmly asked back, “How would you know without giving a try?”

A dense smell of gunpowder filled the air in an instant, and the powerhouses on both sides were prepared to intervene at anytime.

Ah’Bao suddenly laughed, relaxing his clenched fist a bit, “Very well. I have no choice but to admit that you deserve being treated as my rival. Even if your strength is pathetic compared to mine, I am still willing to accept you as my enemy. You should feel honored of that.”

Long Haochen also laughed at him, showing a great indifference while revealing a smile full of self-confidence on his handsome and very bright face, “Unfortunately, I have never regarded you as my rival, and this won’t ever happen unless one day, you succeed to your father’s current position. In my eyes, there exists only one rival, and that’s him.”

Ah’Bao’s look finally changed. In this state of absolute advantage, he was trying to humiliate Long Haochen with his words, to break his self-confidence before annihilating all the the humans around, thus regaining that lost self-confidence of his. But who expected that Long Haochen not only wasn’t fooled, but also counterattacked.

“Do you even see yourself? And you still want to challenge my father? All right, then don’t say I didn’t give you a chance. If you win against me, I will release all of you now. But otherwise…”

“No need for otherwises, just come at me.” Long Haochen advanced with large strides, without even summoning Haoyue to fight with him.

Haoyue lifted his four large heads, looking at Long Haochen with an ardent look. As if he just received some instruction, he lowered his heads once again.

“Haochen!” Tian Qing called out in worry.

Long Haochen turned around and looked at him, and from his point of view, Tian Qing had a determined look. Strong remorse was filling him, as he seemed to be mumbling some words.

Ah’Bao slowly raised his hand, and all the demon forces retreated, leaving an open space before him.

    Thank you!

  • Lhouiegie Baluyot

    Thanks for the chapter!
    So it was an exchange of armors rather than Tian Qing dying, with their escape dependent on LHC’s win. Ah’bao’s Pride would not allow himself to break his word, therefore it all rests on how will LHC win this one. 👍

    • RyokoZero

      Sadly ah bao will be too dead to give his word… LHC is about to power up with this armor.

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I don’t think LHC will can afford to kill Ah’Bao. They are surrounded by over sixty demon powerhouses. If he actually kills Ah’Bao I don’t think any of them are going to give a shit about keeping their word at that point. Revenge would be the topmost priority because they probably all realize that if Ah’Bao dies they forfeit their lives too. The DGE is not going to let any of them off for standing by and watching that no matter what decisions Ah’Bao made, imo.

        • Kaarme

          It’s kind of risky to punish people for obeying the commands of the one who was supposed to be the next autocrat. It would mean his subjects would begin to second-guess his own commands as well.

          However, I do share the view they would all attack if Haochen killed Ah’Bao. A dead man wouldn’t be able to punish them for disobeying, so they might as well do their job and kill demon hunters. Even if, considering my first argument, the Emperor wouldn’t necessarily directly punish them, it’s obvious he would still be pleased if his son’s killer was annihilated.

          • Robin

            A grieving father hearing that sixty of his most powerful subjects stood by and watched his son getting killed would surely be more dangerous than a dead crown prince.

          • Kaarme

            When you are an emperor, you are an emperor first and a father second. I’m not saying he wouldn’t single a few of them out in his anger, but that’s it. Yet it’s all academic since it’s more than unlikely a horde of demons wouldn’t retaliate immediately, no matter what commands a dead man had issued before.

          • Lhouiegie Baluyot

            No one can refute the orders of the crowned prince except the DGE and the DGs w/ high importance in the demon race. As long as LHC wins w/o killing him then there is a chance and even if he kills Ah’bao here as long as that force field or whatever disappeares then LHC can activate Eternal melody to teleport their group to safety.

          • Kaarme

            He would need to extract some unholy blood oath from the other team to keep them silent, though. Not that he could teleport that many people at once anyway.

            In any case, we were talking about what might happen if Haochen killed Ah’Bao. If the prince is merely defeated but alive, I reckon he would actually keep his word and let the humans go, as bitter a decision as it would be. Although he might only grant them a headstart, which, honestly, would be perfectly fair since this all is the idiot Tian Qing’s fault in the first place.

          • Lhouiegie Baluyot

            This is a good chance though, LHC is about to make a 3rd subordinate DHS to them. And that headstart is a good theory seeing as it would cause great dissatisfaction to the other DHRs present if Ah’bao loses here w/c has a high probability.

          • Robin

            And it would paint Haochen’s name in neon paint on the “to kill” list of every DHR squad out there. Especially, since they have quite an audience for their fight this time, not like in the IP before. And even if his son is defeated and brought back, the DGE will surely not be amused.

  • Kaarme

    This didn’t go as I expected, which is of course excellent. I underestimated Ah’Bao by considering him so barbaric he wouldn’t do any talking, let alone want to duel Haochen uninterrupted. Now it makes perfect sense how Tian Qing could survive long enough to actually lend Haochen the armor without the need to make the situation more complex.

    While I still think Tian Qing should have died for his foolishness, I don’t mind so much anymore. His expression might be worth witnessing once he finally realises Ah’Bao is the fricking son of Dragon God Emperor, yet still knows Haochen personally.

    I would appreciate Cai’er knocking a few of Tian Qing’s teeth lose as a compensation, though. Haochen is too gentle to give the man the punishment he sorely needs to grow up.

    • gundam_man

      experience is the best teacher, but i fully expected Tian Qing’s team to die leaving him alone, since they where nameless characters, ultimately giving hoachen the armor,

      • Jonathan Hurd

        I think massacring his team would make Tian Qing pretty much useless for the future story as well. They will probably only focus on him and have his team as background people, kind of like how Zhang Fangfang is the only real person given a name on his team.

        I feel like you don’t go through all the trouble of teaching a guy a lesson like this to kill him. Having another DHS under LHC’s wing will be awesome especially a King one, mwhahahahaha.

        • Care

          👆🏾this!! Yes!! Grow haochen’s army grow!!!!

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Jonathan Hurd

    So first thanks for this and all previous chapters Toto and all sponsors.

    Second… Is anyone going to pick up that phone because I fucking called it!!!

    Just wanted to say that atleast once, 🙂

  • sergioGM

    Thanks for your translation 🙂
    I wait for more 😀

  • Marcel Farias

    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

  • Alex Drake

    Uhhh isn’t it REALLY bad that Hao Yue is out there in the open? The demons are on the lookout for beats with MULTIPLE HEADS!

    • Robin

      Let’s hope that the DGE thinks his son is too occupied with his own matters to tell him about his search for Haoyue. 😉

      • Jonathan Hurd

        They did say they were dispatching DHR’s to try and hunt down a multi headed magical beast, but all those who were tasked with that might have already left. I feel like standing up against something like Austin Griffin would not be handed to Ah’Bao or any team consisting mostly of seventh steppers. Especially considering how nervous Austin Griffin makes even the DGE.

        • Robin

          That’s what I thought. True, the main mission is to hunt Austin Griffon but the second most important one is to counter DHSs since the damage they dealed hurt the demons essentially. I would think that only the highest DHR squads have complete knowledge about the situation to avoid a panic. And to avoid unnecessary bloodshed among the demons. And the precious crown prince shouldn’t be tasked with something as dangerous, especially when grouped with seven steppers.

  • So annoying…I really don’t like that Tian Qing guy. Doesn’t he know how to take what he can get and not to be greedy. Even though I know he wouldn’t…Haochen should have left him behind. ><

  • Bloodraven

  • kencchi

    I’m irked that Tian Qing is feeling sorry. Had he not been basking in his own superiority then they wouldn’t be in this situation. I can’t be too mad though because lhc will probably reap some great benefits from this battle. Hopefully.
