[Chapter 159] [Chapter 161]


Goodbye, Master…

Translator/Editor: Mr Voltaire

 

Within the sea of gold, Ling Chen saw a red silhouette appear. It was a young girl whose face was white as snow; whose eyes were clear as crystals. She wore a flame red princess-style dress, which covered her whole body. She looked at Ling Chen, and sweetly smiled, “Master, I might… have to leave you now.”

It was Xi Ling… in her human form. When activating the Heavenly Wrath of the Nine Suns, she could once again temporarily take her human form.

Ling Chen looked at her slightly red eyes, his voice hoarse, “Xi Ling… why are you being so stupid, why would you use the Heavenly Wrath of the Nine Suns… don’t you know what the consequences are?”

Xi Ling continued to smile, but her eyes contained a hint of sadness, “I know I’m really dumb, and I know exactly what the consequences of activating Heavenly Wrath of the Nine Suns are. I know that even if Master dies, you’ll still be able to immediately revive… however, despite this, seeing Master about to die, I couldn’t help but activate these flames, because… this is the only way to save Master. Even if I know you’ll revive, I still don’t want to see you die…”

 

Ling Chen was speechless, “… Xi Ling, you…”

 

Xi Ling slightly shook her head, a cheerful smile once again appearing on her face, “Master must think I’m very dumb and disobedient right?”

 

Ling Chen: “……”

 

Xi Ling’s tears were immediately evaporated by the burning flames, and her eyes gazed into his, “Master, did you know… from the day I was born, I was by myself. I didn’t know who my father was, I didn’t know was my mother was. I didn’t know how I was born, or even why I was born. I only know that the first memory I have of this world were of billowing flames and a colourless sky… up until today, I still have no idea who my parents are…”

 

Ling Chen: “…..”

 

“I was born into solitude, and grew up in solitude. I never had any friends or companions. They were all afraid of me, and would run away from me whenever they saw me. There was not a single person or creature that was willing to speak with me or play with me… gradually, I became used to just being by myself. I would even begin to avoid other people, animals, Fairies… day after day, year after year… at that time, there was no colour in my life. Every day was for the sake of living to the next day. I grew to know this world little by little in my solitude.”

 

“One day, I was attacked by the Demon Emperor and the ten ancient demon beasts. I was defeated, and was sealed by them. Afterwards, I lost all of my freedom. Every minute and every second I was imprisoned. When I closed my eyes, there was only a perpetual darkness; when I opened my eyes, there were only black threads and an icy cold wall. Just like this, time went by: one day, two days… one year, two years… ten years… one hundred years… one thousand years… ten thousand years. Every second, every minute, the pain of not being able to move or speak at all just made me want to die. I even hated myself for being born… by that time, I had completely given up on freedom. Because I knew that no one would come to save me. I would be imprisoned for twenty thousand years, and then I would simply die. The me from back then longed for that day to quickly come.”

 

Ling Chen’s heart quivered. He had never known that the endlessly powerful Xi Ling had such a past. Xi Ling could no longer hold her smile, and her tears streamed down her face. She did not want to leave Ling Chen at all, but at the same time, she had no regrets either, “However, in my endless despair, what came to me wasn’t death, but Master… you, who did not know me at all, did not hold any responsibility to me, charged in and inconceivably rescued me, and gave me back the freedom I had so longed for. Perhaps to other creatures, freedom is something very insignificant, as they have never been without it. However, to me, it was something I could only dream about. It was Master who gave me my freedom, who gave me a new life… from that moment onwards, I decided that I would do whatever I could in order to repay Master. I decided that I would use all of my power to protect Master. Even if I had to give up everything, even my life, I would not hesitate in the slightest.

 

“Afterwards, I followed Master wherever he went… maybe Master doesn’t know, but becoming Master’s pet wasn’t a restriction or imprisonment, but rather something I desired… just as I told Master before that I wanted to follow Master forever, that was the absolute truth. Because of Master, I received my freedom, so I only wanted to do my best to protect Master. I didn’t ever want to be by myself again… from then, I’ve explored human cities with Master, I’ve met so many people, I’ve learned so much. Having someone to care for you, praise you and for you to rely on is such a wonderful feeling. Every second and minute with Master, I’ve experienced happiness that I’ve never even dared to dream to experience before. However, my time with Master was… so short… this time, I’m really going to… leave Master.”

 

“Xi Ling…” Apart from calling out to her, Ling Chen was unable to say anything else. This being that had caused the War Demon Beast to be so terrified, it turned out that she had grown up in complete loneliness and solitude, being feared by countless other beings. Who knew what she truly desired was so simple and pure?

 

“However, that doesn’t matter, it really doesn’t matter…” Xi Ling’s tears continued to flow as she shook her head, “Being able to stay with Master for this period of time, I’m already very content. Meeting Master was the greatest blessing in my whole life. Even if I know Master would revive, I still can’t bear see all your hard work going to waste… so please forgive me for being stubborn… if, if Xi Ling can still live after this, I’ll… I’ll definitely always listen to Master in future…”

 

The golden light’s intensity stopped increasing, and the nine ‘golden suns’ in the sky’s light had already reached their limit. These nine ‘golden suns’ were far inferior to those that had appeared above Lonely Spirit Ridge, but from the terrifying amount of power they exuded, Ling Chen was absolutely sure they could instantly annihilate the Warring Palace Skeleton.

Ling Chen placed his hand on his chest, feeling a wave of deep sorrow. He had not been with Xi Ling for a very long time, but the connection between Xi Ling and himself was not so simple as ‘Master’ and ‘pet’. He would never forget why Xi Ling had become his pet in the first place, and definitely would not forget the way she had saved him when they had first met with the Heavenly Wrath of the Nine Suns.

The reason he had taken in Xi Ling as a pet was to save her, so he could keep her by her side and protect this selfless and kind girl.

Back when he had released Xi Ling, he had done it on a whim, and did not expect anything from it. He would never have guessed that the beautiful bird would save his life over and over again, at the expense of hers. She was not some ordinary being, but rather a being that possessed rootless flames, a being that even the Demon Emperor and ten ancient demon beasts feared… while Ling Chen was just an insignificant player who had not even entered the Mystic Moon world for long.

Seeing Xi Ling’s face covered in tears, he wanted to say something, and yet nothing came out. The weeping Xi Ling began to smile again, and gradually came nearer… a small, soft body leapt into his. Xi Ling used all of her strength to hug him… this was the thing she wanted to do most since following him.

Xi Ling buried her head into his chest, and closed her golden eyes, enjoying this last moment of happiness… Ling Chen’s body slightly tensed, then tried to use his arms to hug her back, but his arms only met air… Xi Ling had already disappeared from his embrace, and a soft, gentle voice sounded out in his ears, “Goodbye… my Master…”

Boom!!!!!!

The nine golden suns in the air exploded, and golden flames consumed everything within the castle. The Warring Palace Skeleton’s pitiful cries boomed out in fear.

With a great crash, the ‘indestructible’ castle had been easily demolished, and light from outside shone in. However, the golden flames rushed out of the remains of the castle, dispelling the dark clouds overhead and dying the entire sky gold…

2227500,-2227500。

The only person and thing that had not been affected by the golden flames was Ling Chen. He stood still as a statue, unable to move due to the shock. No matter how powerful Xi Ling’s attack was, it would never hurt him.

-2,227,500,-2,227,500。

The moment the golden flames swept over the Warring Palace Skeleton, two enormous damage figures appeared over its head, reducing its incredible amount of HP instantly to 0. Its body slowly fell down, and heavily smashed into the ground. As for the semi-spirit girl, the damage she should have taken was transferred over to the Warring Palace Skeleton, and so was probably still alive… however, she was no long as terrifying as she had originally been to Ling Chen.

The Eerie Castle had been reduced to rubble, and all of the white bones that made up this castle had been completely incinerated, unable to block Ling Chen’s way anymore.

  1. Well, I’m confused. “The fire doesn’t distinguish friend from foe, its lethality is the same for all Damage is (Magic Attack x 9 x Crimson Spirit’s current level).” At the same time, “Targets can be freely chosen within the spell range.” Should or truly shouldn’t Ling Chen be unaffected?

    Thanks for the chapter.

  2. No way shes dead, this author has one of the most retarded MC/Harem armor plots ever so she’ll somehow mysteriously revive again. Very predictable writing, guess people like reading the same thing over and over.

  3. XI LING, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…
    Inhales*
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    cough*cough*
    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. will xi ling revived normally which is kind of impossible
    or
    use method like the ghost girl? bond the soul to ling chen? but ling chen don’t know the method yet?
    AHHHHHHHHHHH
    cliffhanger

    1. In rpg tabletop, we can see sometime similar evenement, when the dungeon master adlib and gave something too ‘hot’ at a player and wich ruin the game. So, i feel your explication is right, but at the same time i want to say “WTF” to the author, because contrary to my example, it’s a “written story” and not an adlib one normaly !

      All in this story is a demesure and i wasn’t shock by it before (i could even say i like it before), but killing Xi Ling is overboard. the maximum i could tolerate in the situation is a nerf of some sort to Xi Ling without killing her, in the other case, if the author just kill her and go to continu as if nothing really happen, i’ll personnaly stop reading this novel.

      Why? because if at chapter 160, the author is already out of planification, adlib and don’t really handle his adlibd, the rest of the story can’t be better, and is doomed to worsen/major change.I don’t pay for the story, sure, but it don’t mean i must support true nonsense..

      Sorry for the long diatribe :S and thanks for reading.

  5. How many chapters has it been since Xi Ling was introduced…20~50 chapters? That’s barely enough for us to know her at all. WTF is this author thinking? Where’s the rush? I don’t even understand why the MC would be affected (he’s barely had time to get to know her)….unless he’s just upset over the loss of free XP and SP

    1. Stop being an idiot. 20~50 chapters in the world of shura’s wrath could be quite a while. And if someone saves your life in exchange for their own life, not only once but twice, of course you’re going to feel immense gratitude. Keep in mind that these are probably self aware AIs.

      1. The thing is… Its just a freaking game! Why are they so upset damn it…. They should just be like weed and love things for the sake of money and XP…

      2. Funny guy! Ling Chen is level 17 (I think) and he met Xi Ling when he was around level 12. And based on how OP Xi Ling’s farming skills are, I don’t think it took Ling Chen more than 10 days to get to level 17 (even with his increased XP demands). It probably took less, considering it took just a day to clear 3 Mega Quests. ALSO, it’s a *game* and not real life. Sure, dying will reset him back to level 0, but I don’t think that’s a good enough of a reason for Ling Chen to get over-attached Xi Ling. Keep in mind that this guy used to be an assassin. Another thing, those 20~50 chapters have only covered about 10~15 days.
        As such, this just felt too contrived for me……but if it was moving to you, don’t mind me at all. We all have different outlooks in life

        1. ^ This.
          in my wildest dreams, i have never even imagined an assassin, professional killer, whose job is murdering people, who is one of the most cold blooded type of people is getting devastated for loosing a GAME PET.

          And the pet you lost not even with you for a month at all.

          Let me ask you like this; Did you ever played a game? If you did, did you ever get an OP pet or piece of gear? If you did, probably that pet or gear did saved you countless times when using it. Either in pvp or pve, that pet or gear will be immensely usefull to you, so in other sense it will save your life.

          So, what would your reaction if someday you lost it?

          It is the same situation. The only difference is that, when i was telling this, i did not use “emotional blackmail” unlike the Author.

  6. Good job, Ling Chen, you arrogant p.o.s . Thanks to u thinking that oh look at me, i solo an epic boss, that means nothing in the world will frightened me. Well, look at what your cockiness done.

    Freaking noob, good job on getting rid of Xi Ling. May u never get another pet and Xiao Hui leave your side. Asshole

  7. “goodbye” but not really because I am fucking sure she is going to be back in like 4 chapters.

    This shit pisses me off, author go kill yourself.

  8. ha ha seems to me that author truly hv the talent to make the readers hate and love this novel. as the saying goes the more u hate the more you will love.

    even though this novel somewhat easy to guess, plot twisting to make op MC n the gang nvr dies, yet I still. can’t stop. reading. XD
