Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 045

Note: Instead of Zhang, Cun and al I’ll write between () the equivalent in Chinese feet, so please take in account that these are Chinese feet, and instead of 1 feet = 0,3 meter like in Occidental countries, they are converted like this: 1 feet = a third of a meter (0,333333 meters). Please keep in mind that the ‘Chinese feet’ is different from the ‘Occidental feet’ before telling me I did a conversion error.

Chapter 45: Starlight Unicorn (III)

So beautiful! Long Hao Chen couldn’t refrain from gasping in astonishment. Such a magnificent wide-opened scenery could only relax him and add a beautiful feeling of clarity to his mood. Taking deep breaths, he felt the abundant light attribute whirling all around him. Resisting, with great difficulty, the urge to enter into seated meditation, he simply took a look around, then directly advanced at a high pace toward the direction of the core of the Sacred Mountain.

The Knights’ Sacred Mountain was enormous, and covering it was challenging. Five days passed in a flash. Long Hao Chen had climbed to the peak of dozens of mountains, and had discovered that he had only covered a third of the total distance. He was still far from the core of the mountain.

In addition, the deeper one went, the higher the peak of the mountains would be, and climbing it would accordingly become harder.

However, he still advanced unceasingly, and the grade of the magical beasts he met also increased accordingly. Fifth and sixth step magical beasts seemed to appear endlessly. Sadly, none of them expressed any will to approach him.

In the ‘Forget-Me-Not’ ring, a sufficient amount of food and water was stored. Long Hao Chen would rest for approximately three hours every day, and although he did not meditate here, he could clearly feel the progress of his spiritual energy.

“Pfiou, need water.” After reaching the summit of another mountain, Long Hao Chen could see to his astonishment that on the other side of this mountain, there was a lake.

From a height, this lake looked like a huge block of sapphire embedded in the mountain, reflecting the shining sun. It looked just like the entrance to a wonderland in this human world.

“Excellent. Teacher said that there would be a lot of strong water type beasts in this kind of region. Maybe I can find my destined companion here.”

Without a single pause, he hastily went down the hill. Maybe it was because he had a goal set, but this time he sped up a lot, and descended the mountain in little time.

From afar, he saw that some magical beasts were drinking water on the lakeside, and halted his steps, advancing slowly, approaching them from the front.

He could quickly see a marvellous scene and Long Hao Chen’s heart skipped a bit. What is that?

More than ten unicorns were lingering near the lakeside. These unicorns were clearly a community, they all had a snow white body, gold-colored mane, and a spiral pattern could be seen drawn on the front of their proud faces. Each one of them had a pair of enormous wings, pure-white colored wings with gold-colored feathers at the edge.

This, this is…

Starlight Unicorns?

Unicorns were certainly the mounts knights were the most fond of. Regardless of whether on the sky or on the ground, they were extremely powerful. They were really formidable magical beasts on the surface as well as the air. In addition, unicorns were gentle beasts, and relatively docile. Without a doubt, they were also arrogant. Only by conquering one, or if it took a fancy toward a person, would it perhaps consider concluding an agreement.

Starlight Unicorns are among the most commonly known kinds of unicorns. A fully grown Starlight Unicorn is a peak eighth step magical beast. Its strength is just a step away from that of a ninth step magical beast, second only to the ninth step Divine Unicorn.

A Starlight Unicorn was, in addition, a light attribute magical beast, so if a poll was to be done, inquiring What kind of mount do knights desire the most as their companion?, at least half of those who were asked would have chosen it.

Looking at these Starlight Unicorns, Long Hao Chen ceased breathing while approaching them, they were indeed even more formidable than his big sister’s Rose Unicorn!

They were so pretty, their body simply looked beautiful as well as powerful. The rich holy aura they released was very pure, as if they seemed to have completely merged with the lake, their bodies emitting a faint golden rippling radiance.

Taking a deep breath, Long Hao Chen took out his heavy sword as well as his shield, he knew that the opportunity had come.

He did the best he could to stay tranquil, slowly walking towards these Starlight Unicorns.

Even if it wasn’t in the Knights’ Sacred Mountain, the kind-hearted Starlight Unicorns would probably not rashly attack humans; besides, they weren’t influenced much by the magical array here.

In this group of Starlight Unicorns, there was an especially big one; its body was 6,6 meters (20 feet) long, 4 meters (12 feet) high, and its horn was, in itself, two-thirds of a meter (2 feet) long. Also, it had a pair of completely dazzling gold-colored eyes. While the other Unicorns were drinking water, it was the only one who calmly stood there, observing the surroundings.

Without a doubt, this unicorn was their king.

Seeing Long Hao Chen slowly coming towards it, this Starlight Unicorn looked a bit surprised, its right leg lightly hitting the ground.

Long Hao Chen hurriedly stood in front of it, and sincerely requested: “Respectable Starlight Unicorn, I am a knight from the Knight Temple. I came here to seek a companion. I wonder if it is possible for both of us to initiate an exchange?”

High leveled magical beasts were generally extremely wise creatures, not the slightest bit inferior to humans, and gaining their acknowledgement was accordingly difficult. Establishing communication was the first step.

This Starlight Unicorn King stared at Long Hao Chen’s figure with its pair of golden eyes and upon seeing Long Hao Chen’s golden eyes that were even more limpidly dazzling than his, could not help but feel surprised.

An intense light was emitted by the horn at the top of its head, spraying out some gold colored powder that started to envelop Long Hao Chen’s body.

Simultaneously, a faint gold color was released from Long Hao Chen’s body, especially his chest that was sparkling in golden light.

Such an abundant holy aura came from Long Hao Chen, giving a warm and intimate feeling; he immediately felt exalted form the bottom of his heart, this Unicorn King was willing to communicate with him, it was the proof that he had gotten an opportunity to gain its acknowledgement. It gave him in addition a cordial feeling.

“Hello there, human. ” A gentle, manly sound resounded in Long Hao Chen’s mind.

Although Long Xing Yu had told Long Hao Chen before that all high-ranked magical beasts had the ability to communicate with humans, it was the first time he encountered this kind of magical telepathy, he was thus quite nervous. He hurriedly answered, in his thoughts: “Hello there, Starlight Unicorn.”

The Starlight Unicorn then said: “The holy aura released by your body is extremely pure. It is clearly above the level of mine, it makes me feel very comfortable.”

Long Hao Chen’s heart skipped up a beat, “In that case, can I become your companion?”

The crucial moment arrived. If this Starlight Unicorn gave his agreement, in that case, Long Hao Chen would obtain a peak eighth step formidable magical beast as his mount. Exactly, a young unicorn! If he was to possess such a formidable mount, even Earth Knights would not necessarily be a match for him.

The Starlight Unicorn became silent upon hearing Long Hao Chen’s question. The golden radiance it released became even more intensely strong, and under its influence, Long Hao Chen’s eyes became even more sparkling, clear like crystal, reflecting this unicorn’s silhouette.

“I really want to agree to thine request.” The Starlight Unicorn suddenly started using respectful tone1, “But, I don’t want to deceive thee.”

Long Hao Chen was stunned, “What… what do you mean by that?”

“Respectable Scion of Light, I can clearly see the source of your light. I would really like to become your mount, your companion. If I did so, in my lifetime, it would probably be possible for me to become a ninth step magical beast. But I cannot do that. For the simple reason that we, unicorns, are honest beings. With my innate talent, I do not have the qualifications to serve the Scion of Light. I am sorry, I can only decline your offer.”

“Oh? You don’t have the qualifications?” Long Hao Chen suddenly gasped. Even if this Starlight Unicorn says he doesn’t have the qualifications, he cannot be so much in awe. Before my eyes is a peak eighth step formidable being after all! If he doesn’t have the qualifications, what kind of magical beast would be suitable to become my companion?

“I am afraid that this time, you went on an errand for nothing. From what I know, inside of this Knights’ Sacred Mountain, I am not the only one who doesn’t have the qualifications, but even the other ninth step magical beast as well as their descendants don’t have the qualifications to become your companion.” The Starlight Unicorn spoke to Long Hao Chen in a helpless tone.

Previous Chapter, Next Chapter

  1. He calls him nin (respectful ‘you’) instead of ni (regular ‘you’), like he called him in the beginning. EDIT Zeke: We attempted to try Old English (thou, thee…) out but it was too complicated for our little minds so it was reverted to normal English

      • Michael Finjan

    • Teenaizen

      I’m sure it’s gonna be something small and under step 3 ^^

  • Moridain

    While I know the unicorn doesn’t have the qualification, I still kind of wish he accepted it.
    That unicorn sounds like a lovely person, and so cute.
    That could just be my inner fangirl though?

  • ddadain

    Occidental Feet??? ?_?

    Doth mother know you speaketh in a most strange manner?

    Google yields no entries for “Occidental Feet”… how does its “omnisciency” lack such a term if it exists? (LOL)

    • Oh I see, how should I call this kind of feet? American feet?

      • burnnnn

        American feet smell

        • ddadain

          ‘Merica just got burned >_> Rofl

          Just call them “feet” or convert to metrics since China also uses the metric system :3

      • jacobpaige

        I think its referred to as an Imperial Unit, since it was a standard unit of measure when the British Empire was still flourishing.

  • kensche heiashi

    Thank ya very much for the translation, translator! Many thanks towards the Author!

  • Feelngood

    • kociol

      Moe jesus ^^

  • mcr555

  • Frun Blumglin

    thaks for the chapter!!! =3

  • superkuma

    ah.. and here I thought he would flying over the rainbows while riding unicorn in the future…

    • Inbetweenaction

      he will, they already said that divine unicorns are ranked higher. So clearly, he is about to get the divine rainbow robot unicorn

      • EZ-J

        But he also said none of the ninth ranked mounts qualify. So he’ll summon one

        • John Adams

          yeah summon the divine rainbow robot unicorn lol

  • Salante

    Ultimate class genius problems indeed.

    • Vedastra

      Lol, nice one

    • Zhugenaut

      Don’t worry, someone will come along, with an extra 😀

    • Colonel

      LOL this sure makes my day!

    • NP-3228

      dam first time being too much of a genius would hurt so bad T.T

    • Azyrion

    • jacobpaige

      lol

    • wuwu

    • Illunis

      “I’m… too talented” T-T

  • Maybe even the mountain will not want him as companion 🙁

    • burnnnn

      As if you don’t know what happens already 😛

      The mountain will claim that only 9th step volcanoes are worthy of his might.
      Then he finds a 9th-step volcano only to discover it is 9 steps on the ground which spew lava.

      • yuzu

        that’s right little bro already know who/what his mount is!
        hey can’t you tell you big sis who/what it is? I’m dying of curiosity!
        ne! ne! oshiette!! oshiette!!! >,<

        • The mountain just detaches itself from the ground and offers its soul and body obviously

        • Frandy Heddinks

          at first i wanted to give you a spoiler, but then i thought it would be bad of me to do so.. just wait until totobro translation get into the chapter, maybe around 4-5 chapters more Hao Chen’s mount will be revealed..

    • superkuma

      lmao, even the mountain is not worthy enough of Hao Chen’s OPness

  • Akki

    Thanks for the chapter!
    Ah~ *sight* Poor Hao Chen, I guess he’ll just have to relay on that summoning magic thingy that the elder mentionen…. I just hope that, if there is no suitable mount, then the unicorn would change his mind or something…

    • Skoll

      The elder said if they do that special fprmation he will ABSOLUTELY get a perfect mount. Just that it could even be a first step one. So it’s a gamble.

  • Ryan Ty

    Thank you for the chapter and I think a lvl 10 Baby Golden Dragon is the right mount for him.

  • Nanana

    Well maybe a dragon? Probably his mount will be …

    (insert super strong, scary and majestic adjectives here) dragon of (insert OP nouns here).

    • Zhugenaut

      You are half right, the other half is super secret.

      • Skoll

        AT LEAST PUT A SPOILER TAG ON THAT :/ Oh well, most people savvy to this genre of LN would’ve guessed dragon anyways (I did). I hope its some kind of light dragon.

        • I deleted his comment, next time, I’ll ban his IP from comments.

          • leehar

            Isn’t skoll’s response also slightly spoiler-ish?
            Since he discusses what I assume the other guy said his companion would be?

          • not anymore :). But Skoll’s comment was great, it helped me to notice this spoiling comment, thanks a lot skoll.

    • lizzy

      Or maybe his fate makes its tricks and instead he’ll have a small lizard xD
      well.. would still be better than that (my) little pony

  • Elsie

    I wonder how Long Hao Chen will be able to find a mount with enough qualifications

  • tracktor

    Then.. baby dragon mb.
    Thanks.

  • Vedastra

    Thx for the chapter

  • Avon

    Pfft.. Unicorns are for girls.
    Get a Black Gold Dragon God if you are a Man!

    Thanks for the chapter.

  • kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!

  • MAS :3

    How about all magical beasts become long hao chen’s mount? It will be awesome. Hehehe. Thanks for the update

  • MarcD

    When he get his mount? How many chp later?

    • Something2w84

      I think it’s on 49.. patience man.. patience

  • totesose

    Y^Y

    • Michael Finjan

      naah, even when he summons they will run away

  • Cookie

    Dragon? Ya right

    • cookie

      But close relative of one? Maybe…

      • metamorph

        Wuz ? Close relative of dragons –> mother of dragons –> he summons Khalessi ?

        • Michael Finjan

          that´s quite the long shot

        • jacobpaige

          I think his big sister might have a problem with him riding Khalessi 😉

          • wut

            Ha ha XD made my day

  • Netero

    I’m hoping for Nine Tailed fox.

  • Nann

    thanks for the chapter!

  • Tereus

    Looking at how great fortune teller I am, I tell you this: He will waste the whole month on the mountain to LVL UP his spirit powers. And then he will chose this alternate way that the Old dude at the entrance said. This way he will obtain either some OP mount like some of you say or he will obtain some step ONE mount.

    Long Hao Chen is too OP right now and the RIOT needs to NERF him a little bit…

    • They can also up everyone else like Dota would have done

  • BurningAlpha

    “Hello there, human. ” A gentle, manly sound resounded in Long Hao Chen’s mind.

    Yup Unicorns are apparently manly 😐

    • Fnors

      Well, that one is. It’d be strange if all unicorns were female in this setting.

  • Mario Mägi

    Thanks for the chapter! It seems like Long Hao Chen needs to use that summoning formation(?). The previous description of it made it sound similar to a lottery, so he might get something good like an awesome dragon, but it’s much more likely that he’ll get something weird like a Divine Donkey or something.

  • jacobpaige

    I figured he’d be doing the summoning when they mentioned it, but I didn’t think it would be because all the mounts in the range were too low level for him 😉

  • Netero

    Well the admin here is so dilligent he upvotes every comment.

  • John Adams

    i realized i would actually be cool with a unicorn mount so long as it ends up a talking mount with an awesome personality if so i would hope they name him shalkan

  • Gustavo

    My best shot at what will be his mount is a step one mystical being (not beast, since it’ll be OP as fuck, will have conscience and so on, because he’s OP) that was never seen before but because it is an step one people will underestimate it and it’ll turn out to be the most OP thing anyone could get with the potential to make miracles (like going above ninth step, who knows)

    • Michael Finjan

      really hope ur wrong, else the story will become desolate era all over again, with the mc way to OP and everything seems so boring since he´s just that OP and completes everything so easily

      • Gustavo

        But from what I understood from the novel, even if he’s OP as his father is, he still no match for the Demon’s Pillar (the first 72 ones) (vide the foreshadowing that his father is going out on a crusade and may not come back alive). So I could bet that the mount will be something like that and it’ll still be a close fight with every Demon

  • bugs

    best bet he summons a magical pet but it will be a low level rare magical beast that probably can evolve to the strongest companion for him .
