Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 411


Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 411: Using his Body as a Shield (III)

Ye Xiaolei’s mouth twitched at the corners, “Look at this! He suffered so much for your sake, and yet you actually forgot about him?” Saying this, she raised her hand and revealed a deep green screen in front of Cai’er. Its display was a bit distorted in the middle, but it revealed traces of light and shadow.

The bright screen grew till it reached a meter in size, and in its middle appeared a clear scene. The image portrayed Long Haochen and Cai’er, and the scene of the demons besieging their group was displayed.

In the image, each of Long Haochen’s movements was concise and exact, and he showed no hesitation to use his own body to block the hits aimed at Cai’er, time and time again.

Even from only looking at this depiction, one could clearly feel Long Hoachen’s body being broken while he suffered a mad loss of vital energy . However, Cai’er who was protected by him didn’t have the slightest wound on her, and even when besieged by that many demon powerhouses, the only one who ended up wounded was Long Haochen himself.

The scene changed fast, but this short record was enough to fill anyone with shock.

Cai’er’s look was still blank, but didn’t have the same coldness and alarm as before, as she murmured to herself, “That… Is that me? Is that really me? Who… Who am I?”

Another person was in even bigger shock than her, and that was Yue Ye. Seeing the desperate scene in the image, she finally understood why this young knight ended up with such a mass of injuries. He only suffered them to protect Cai’er! He not only protected her life, but also defended her mystical burst of insight, and didn’t even mind igniting his own life to do so. If not for Ye Xiaolei’s prompt arrival, if he didn’t die from this, he’d definitely suffered sequelae, or perhaps even remained maimed for his whole life.

For a man to go that far for a girl, there was already no need to prove anything else.

Conversely, in the image, she also saw Ah’Bao, but he was attacking with all his might, attempting to kill both Long Haochen and Cai’er.

Yue Ye was deeply pondering. At the time he attacked Long Haochen’s group, just what was Ah’Bao thinking?

Her face looked pale, and the grievance turned her insides ice-cold. When she shot a glance at Cai’er, she couldn’t help but show some sincere envy, or perhaps even some jealousy. If I had gotten to know him earlier, no matter what, I would have grabbed his heart at any cost. But now…

But she only revealed a regretful look, and did no more. She actually didn’t have any courage to fight for him now.

After the display faded away, Cai’er still stood here, repeating the same words as before, looking more and more frantic.

Long Haochen was unable to move, otherwise he wouldn’t have spared any cost to hold her in his arms, and console her terrified heart, even if she had that massive sickle as a part of her.

With a wave of her hand, Ye Xiaolei spoke, “Hey, you understand now, don’t you? He’s your man! If you don’t want of him, I’m sure many other girls will be fighting over him.”

But Cai’er didn’t even pay the slightest attention to her, only standing there with a blank look, mumbling those same words to herself.

“Xiaolei, what’s going on with Cai’er?” Long Haochen hastily asked.

Ye Xiaolei turned around to look at him, revealing a bitter smile, “I don’t know either. During one’s awakening as a god’s chosen one, that person is sure to have an awakening of his or her spirit. Although the energy from her awakening was already all absorbed, a problem must have occurred in the process of her spirit awakening. This should have affected her brain and probably caused a temporary loss of memories.”

“Then do you have some way to help her?” Long Haochen kept asking hastily.

Ye Xiaolei shrugged her shoulders, “I’m not a god, and even a god isn’t omnipotent! The human brain has a very complicated structure, and everyone has an entirely unique spirit.

I can heal injuries on one’s body, but since her spirit and brain were affected, which relate to her soul, even a necromancer would have no way to heal her. Unless you kill her, and take away her soul. Perhaps that kind of necromancer would do something like that.”

Long Haochen asked in alarm, “Then… Then Cai’er won’t ever recover?”

Ye Xiaolei replied, “Of course not. Among the known spells, none can wipe a human’s memories, it is unlike taking one’s soul and life. That’s how deeply one’s memories are rooted in the brain. Therefore, her memories didn’t really disappear. It’s just that along with the change of her spiritual energy, they became blocked by something like a screen, during her awakening as a chosen one of the god of death. That’s just like when you encounter a bottleneck during your cultivation. As long as she breaks through this screen, her memories will naturally return.

Usually, the bottlenecks of your human cultivation require continuous understanding and cultivation to break through them, but this kind of screen will need you to treat her well, and try to summon her memories, to possibly break. It’s just that her condition looks quite critical. Don’t be overly impatient, you need her to accept you by her side first of all. Okay, I’ll give you a little more help. Perhaps putting her to sleep for a little while will do some good.”

Saying that, Ye Xiaolei slightly opened her mouth in Cai’er’s direction, exhaling a dark green fog that drifted towards Cai’er.

Cai’er’s terrified look gradually became tranquil, as if that dark green fog was very pleasant. Lightly breathing it in, her expression became hazy, and soon, she fell softly to the ground, already sound asleep.

“Thank you, Xiaolei. I will forever keep this favor in my heart. You really are a lifesaver.” Long Haochen declared with resolution. He was the most clear on how critical his own injuries had been, and that Ye Xiaolei definitely needed to spend a good quantity of mental and physical effort to heal him. He wasn’t an expert at praising others, but would deeply engrave this kind of favor in his heart. It wasn’t the only time Ye Xiaolei helped them, and he clearly remembered the promise he made to her in the Illusory Paradise.

Ye Xiaolei unhappily replied, “No need for thanks. This was for the deal between the two of us. However, be careful in the future. If you get fatally wounded, even I will be helpless. I have to leave now, the aura of death here is really too annoying. Still, I have no choice but to admit that this necromancer ought to have been a terrible existence during his life. Don’t forget our promise!”

Long Haochen nodded to her, “I promise that I will do it no matter what. Anyway, I still have to thank you.” He already stopped seeing Ye Xiaolei as a mere little girl long ago. This young lady from the Illusory Paradise was not only intelligent, but also had a knowledge that adults would envy.

Ye Xiaolei suddenly had some thoughts, and said resolutely, “Your strength is growing very fast, I’m very satisfied. However, you have to keep something in mind. Although this necromancer is of the light element, which is extremely rarely seen in this field, his inheritance is absolutely not suited to you. That’s because his power contains a massive rancor, which isn’t something you can bear. In case you succeed in inheriting his legacy, you will very possibly be affected by this rancor, and soon after become like him. This is something you are unable to change. For this reason, you can keep training in the tower of this necromancer, but never cross the last step, no matter what. In other words, never try to get enter the last floor of this tower.”

In puzzlement, Long Haochen asked, “Can’t this rancor be dispelled?”

Ye Xiaolei shook her head, “At least you cannot. Being of the same element as him. In case you inherit his power, even the goddess of light won’t be able to protect you from having this kind of rancor enter you. And you won’t be able to surpass it! Your girlfriend, who just lost her memories, is more suited to it.

The power of the god of death she succeeds is extreme. However, this necromancer has already chosen you, and you can’t do anything to change that. Anyway, listen to me and you will be fine. I wouldn’t try to cause harm to you! Okay, then I’m going. Remember my words.”

Saying that, Ye Xiaolei pointed her finger to the void, once again opening that green gate of light. Taking a step forward, the little girl shook the braids on her head, and disappeared into the green light.

Seeing her vanish, Long Haochen’s eyes flashed with thankfulness. But rapidly, it got replaced by worries. Even he felt confused about the fact that Cai’er lost her memories. Since even Ye Xiaolei was unable to treat her, recovery was probably only possibly by relying on herself.

“Yue Ye, please help me sit straight.” Long Haochen asked the nearby Yue Ye. Because of his worry towards Cai’er, he didn’t even notice that something was wrong with Yue Ye’s state of mind.

Hearing Long Haochen’s voice, Yue Ye was slightly shaken, and unconsciously joined his side, placing him in a cross-legged position.

“Didn’t that girl just say you need to rest? What are you doing?” Yue Ye asked with doubt in her voice.

Long Haochen forced a smile, “Now that Cai’er lost her memories, I have to recover as fast as possible. Otherwise, how can I take care of her? Be at ease, when my strength is back, I will bring you out of here. Only, I’m worried about the restriction Cai’er left on your body. I don’t have any way to dispel it, but I will definitely do my best to help her recover her memories as soon as possible, so that you can get rid of it.”

Yue Ye shook her head, “No need, the restriction is already dispelled. At the time you brought her back here, I noticed that it disappeared from my body. This should be related to her insightful awakening. Long Haochen, I am grateful for the time you saved my Yue Ye Caravan at the edge of the demon territory, but over these years, I also provided considerable help for you. I believe that this was sufficient to repay your kindness from that time. From today onwards, we won’t have any relation, and in the future, don’t put me in impossible situations again. Given your current cultivation, you can already enter the demon territory without the help from my merchant group.”

Yue Ye’s voice was becoming colder and colder, before turning cold as ice. It was as if her voice was a mirror of her mood. Even she herself didn’t understand why she became so cold. That wasn’t her original idea, yet she unconsciously said all these words. Was it to run away? Or something else?


  • gundam_man

    thx

  • Groundmast

    Thanks for the chapter!! Arghhhhh I am hating the fact that caier lost her memories!!

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I have to admit I am not a giant fan of Amnesia in general. It feels like it will be more of a drag at this point than anything else.

      • Groundmast

        Same here bro but now I think lhc squad will atleast take a break from missions now and LHC can look for his parents which I am really excited about 😀

        • Kaarme

          Yeah, sure, but how can he now introduce his cute girlfriend to his parents when the said girlfriend doesn’t even remember Haochen’s name anymore, let alone being anybody’s girlfriend?

          Up until now Haochen has needed to prove himself to the Assassin temple mofos and Cai’er’s parents, that he’s worthy of the Assassin temple’s precious princess, but now when it would be Cai’er’s turn to prove her worth to Haochen’s parents, she can’t do shit anymore, nor would she even want to do anything.

          I don’t want Haochen’s reunion with his parents being one where they all feel sorry for Cai’er. That would be a huge letdown.

  • SYWZ Fan

    I’m feeling bad for Yue Ye…at least Long Haochen should say something like “you are our friend, thus no matter what happens, as long as I don’t have to kill anyone from my side, I will help you!”

    • Robin

      Not quite true. Ye Xiaolei said that her memories are not gone, because there is no spell which could do this. Therefore, it is only a matter of time, when she will regain them.

      • Evilage

        Umm i believe he was speaking of yue ye not cai’er

        • Robin

          Wow, I am sure the comment of SYWZ Fan changed. When I answered, he said something about it being impossible for Cai’er to regain her memories. 😉

          • Evilage

            Oh i see…

          • Robin

            Yep, even I would not be that confused. @v@

          • Evilage

            Lets go along with that :>

          • leopold1983

            Looking at the previous comment I guess it’s just Robin answering at the wrong comment. Instead of replying to SYWZ fan, he clearly wanted to answer Groundmast just a little down here xD

          • Evilage

            Oh thats quite possible.

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I like that. I think I would do the wording as “You have helped me greatly and I will always consider you a friend. If you are ever in need feel free to come to me. If it is within my power I will try to help.”

      • Evilage

        Friendzoned
        Better yet.. allyzoned

    • Kaarme

      Indeed. Who knows, maybe under better circumstances he would have said it, but now his head is full of Cai’er. Still a pity business is all he could get out of his mouth. But on the other hand, maybe it’s better this way. At the end of the day, they are still enemies, humans and demons. It’ll be easier for Yue Ye if she can now gradually forget her special feelings for Haochen and again start to think what’s good for her own clan and nation. It’s kind of dodgy she’s been helping a human to kill demons, being a demon herself.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • Arrayal

    Man is this a double downer or what. Cai’er loses her memories with little to no possibility that she would get them back and Yue Ye drifting further away

  • Zeth

    Thank you Totobro!

  • Evilage

    I didnt expect a chapter to be released so soon.(for me okay) Hard to get play by demon princess?…
    Anyhow we are almost at the half of the book… wait a sec.
    I just checked and it seems this novel has 876 chapters which means 438th chapter will be directly half. Wow.
    I think cai’er will be like this for a long time in this novel slowly getting closer to LHC. This seems similar to the situation in DD where xiao yu returned from being a human yet didnt have any human memories.
    This seems like an attempt by the author to stop developing their relationship too much since they both are still children.

    • Robin

      The boon of being away for some time, I guess. 😛

      • Evilage

        I blame my studies and all these other novels i’m reading. I basically cant keep up with anything. 😐
        “Life” i guess

    • Jonathan Hurd

      I think he is trying to establish this so there is some gigantic breakthrough where Cai’er remembers LHC as he is trying to sacrifice himself again.

      • Evilage

        Maybe? Or NTR? Probably not NTR. But even i get the feeling she’ll remember when the team is backed into a corner.
        Letd hope for more funny situations created by this no memo-cai’er

  • Eve Evita

    Thanks for the chapter!
    And poor LHC XD

  • Dragon

    Uhhh sometimes it feels like LHC and Cai’er’s relationship is like watching a soup oppera just when they seem to be making progress boom sudden amnisha but as it was previously stated by (Evilage) they are still kids I fell that with this set back it could provide a chance for their relationship to grow deeper and more meaningful. Side note still wondering who that mysterious guys was that was looking at the fight between LHC and Ai’bo was he a friend or foe?

    • Gwylon

      Probably the father. Maybe?

      • Evilage

        Which father? Xingyu and fengxiu?

        • Gwylon

          Xingyu. Because Hao yue was there and Fengxiu is trying to kill him at all cost.
          (Fengxiu is the demon emperor right? I have terrible memory.)

          • Evilage

            Yes fengxiu is the DGE. And in theory his second successor is the LHC. So he wouldnt kill LHC even if he moved against hao yue

          • Gwylon

            But he wouldn’t stand idle if even the smallest hint of austin/hao yue was present. We’ve already seen that.

          • Robin

            It can’t be the DGE, just imagine him keeping away after seeing a multi-headed beast he is desperately searching for? No way in hell! And somehow I don’t think it is Haochen’s father either. At the moment I am inclined to say he is an assasssin.

          • Kaarme

            It would be utterly stupid if it was Haochen’s old man. The same man who left telling Haochen to find him once Haochen is worth something (a seventh step)? Why would that man then be secretly hanging around Haochen instead of doing the work that was more important than watching his son grow? He would be the grand emperor of tsunderes.

          • Robin

            Yeah, it can’t be Xingyu. And he would never have left his mother somewhere while tracing their son alone.

          • leopold1983

            I agree with you. Neither DGE nor LHC’s father. It could be someone from the assassin’s temple since they have kept close watch on Cai’Er since she’s a child because she’s of the utmost importance for the assassin’s temple. It could also be someone from the Warrior’s temple to check if the sword is left with someone worthy of it or someone from the Knight’s temple since they also value LHC as a very important asset.

          • Robin

            If we assume that it is the same person Han Quian mentioned when they departed, it is less likely that it is a warrior. Sure, Haochen got the sword before they departed, but he only visited the Warrior Temple afterwards. First, i thought it was the knight from the IP, which still isn’t completely out of the loop. How many mystery men can we have? But an asassin would also fit the bill, especially after the last description.

      • Dragon

        I don’t think so because if it was his dad would he let his son be betten close to death without helping?

    • Evilage

      Well thank you for mentioning me. Yeah it really seems he is reseting their relationship since there seems to be around more than half chapters left and if their relationship gets any deeper it’ll be a erotic novel. :

      • Robin

        Perhaps not deeper in an erotic sense, but deeper in regard of expressing their emotions. Sure, Haochen doesn’t need any improvement there, and Cai’er so far brilliantly played the role of the untouchable ice-queen, but this is something that bothered me a little. She is very isolated due to her power and Haochen is her only real companion. Even her teammates are afraid of her, which only will get worse if they learn about her power upgrade. Somehow Cai’er now seems more expressive than ever before. Maybe this is a chance for her to learn how to interact normally with others?

        • Evilage

          But she does interact with their teammates. When LHC went into the tower she was the one who commanded them. When piggy first came and loli summoner was crying she was also the first one to comfort her. Thiu she isnt as open with them as with LHC she still is open with them compared to strangers or her parents previously

          • Robin

            Yeah, but when Haochen was away and she commanded them, they were also clearly afraid of her and didn’t know how to interact with her. There have been improvements on her part – remember when she apologized to Lin Xin after being harsh? – but there is still a clear line seperating her from them.

          • Evilage

            Yes and it’ll take time for her to get used to them. I doubt this cai’er would get along with them at the start dho.
            Plus what’ll heppen when she regains her memories

  • agila0212

    Thank you for the chapter 🙂

  • ZaX

    Yue Ye is jealous haha. Thanks for the chapter

  • Care

    I was trying so hard not to read ahead and wait til there are like ten chapters I get to read in one go. But couldn’t not not stop myself. Ahhhh. Why why — I was so upset with DD when Xiao le got memory soul snatched and had to stop reading (could only keep away for like a month or two** lol) so I guess this is my cue to take a break from SYWZ. Not for long I’m sure since I love both stories oh so much.
    Soo glad I found some female centric wuxia style web novels. Not quite as well rounded in world building like TJSS but it’s great filler for waiting for these two awesome novels to be translated!!
    Thank you so much sifu totobro for translating and for all the Sponsors yeehaw!! many thanks, I give.

  • Kaarme

    Haochen must enter the last floor of the tower! The whole necromancer and Elux’s inheritance plot would be totally pointless if it’s not taken to the very end and conclusion.

    Considering Haochen has never shirked from anything, let alone danger or other things that must be done, due to fear, I doubt he will stop simply because somebody tells him he can’t pull it off. He would still be a n00b demon hunter doing entry level missions in perfect safety if he only listened to other people’s advice and ignored his own feelings and ambitions.

    Considering the demons and Hao Yue’s original world is now dominated by the undead, who knows, maybe there’s some deeper relevance in Haochen learning a lot about necromancy.

    • Evilage

      Reading the above chapter i think LHC will gain the inheritence of the tower and this rancor probably will be inherited by cai’er(prediction)

      • Kaarme

        That might work if it can happen, if it can be split like that. Cai’er being a yandere, she should be able to handle some thousands of years worth of rancor no problem.

        • Evilage

          Exactly
          Ellux does seem similar to cai’er too(personality wise i mean)

  • leopold1983

    Thank you Totobro! Always eager to read chapters. It’s really is entertaining and I enjoy the story. Thank you for your work! It’s starting to be cold north! Take care and beware of the cold!

  • Anto Wibowo

    Thank you for the chapter!

  • Evilage

    Anyone wonder who the assassin was that helped him in the past when he first met with cai’er? It could be cau’er dad since he showed some reaction when he saw the forget me not ring. This has been on my mind for a while

    • Robin

      I am almost sure that it was Ying Suifeng since he acted as her uncle and escort since she was young.

      • Evilage

        It could be. But he did state they(haochen and cai’er) never met in the past during the selection arcs (right after LHC finds out that cai’er is a assassin)

        • Robin

          Well, Haochen changed a lot since then and Suifeng would surely not expect Haochen to be as young as he is from the get-go. At this point of time, he didn’t know about Haochen’s age. And be honest, how many would connect the measly child someone met somewhere in the past with such a glamorous appearance as the Haochen at the tournament?

          • Evilage

            The forget me not ring.
            If he was that person he’ll know that cai’er gave the forget me not ring to him and when he sees that ring on LHC, he should’ve put two and two together.

          • Robin

            Technically yes, but there are some points speaking against it. First, Haochen surely wore armor and gloves in the stadium. Cai’er only got to touch the ring because he touched her with bare hands. Second, Suifeng surely was too far away to easily see such a tiny ring without paying close attention to it, especially if it is hidden under gloves, and why should he have done so at first? Third, even Haochen’s appearance had changed drastically from when he was a kid, due to his awakening as the scion of light. It would have been difficult to connect the dots without a hint that it could be the same person. Suifeng seems to be an arrogant person who does not pay too much attention to small details or people not concerning him directly, so for me it seems not unlikely that he didn’t recognize Haochen.

  • MangoGuy

    nice twist!! interesting,…..

  • Evilage

    A joke just came to mind
    Cai’er gave LHC the forget-me-not ring and forgot him
    Pardon me for trying :

    • leopold1983

      Yes, he didn’t forget about her but didn’t recognized her when he saw her at the tournament. Maybe he should give her back the forget me not ring. Doing so may ring a bell :p (pun attempt and intended)

      • Evilage

        Yes ahahahah

  • leopold1983

    I may sound like captain obvious, but those having problem to read the teaser can change 411 in adress bar to 412 and voilà, you’ll have the teaser. Well for those that like to be teased.
    The link was broken for me.

    • Robin

      Nope, you are right. Thank you for the information.

      • leopold1983

        Yes problem solved, Thank you 🙂 now next and previous chapter works perfectly 🙂

        • Robin

          Good to hear. I informed Toto and he solved the problem.

  • Jhay Belandres

    Pretty sure the ending of this novel would be Long Hao Chen fighting Hao Yue or Aston Griffin.

    • FudgeeBar
