The Legend of Sun Knight V4C2: “A Strong Steed”

The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 4: To Slay a Dragon

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Second Tactic of Slaying a Dragon: “A Powerful Steed” – translated by ErodingPersona

Iacchi said that after the unicorn freed itself, the entire city went into lockdown mode with only a few small passageways for human entry, so the unicorn had definitely not escaped out of the city yet. However, for some reason, even though searches were conducted meticulously throughout the night, the unicorn still hadn’t been found.

To prevent the situation from dragging on for too long, which might lead to the escape of the unicorn or the capture of the unicorn by someone else who might smuggle it out of the country, the Adventurers’ Guild had decided to offer five hundred gold ducats as an award to whoever managed to capture the unicorn. The only restrictions were that the unicorn could not be killed or allowed to come to serious harm.

I started contemplating Iacchi’s information, but no matter how much I thought about it, I could only conclude that the first thing I needed to do was catch the unicorn before anyone else.

Time is of the essence! I immediately asked the others, “Where is my equipment?”

Hearing my words, Sybil and Yuna exchanged glances with each other. The former then very reluctantly removed a badge, gazing longingly at it for quite some time before placing it in my hand.

I looked at the badge in my hand. It was about the size of my palm and was made of metal, but a very strong dark element shrouded it. I had to make quite an effort to distinguish the metal element characteristic of metals from the enveloping dark element to make out the actual shape of the badge.

The badge had a motif embossed on it, simple lines forming a very imposing-looking… animal.

For a moment, I couldn’t remember what kind of animal it was. I probably hadn’t encountered it very often before. Still, the badge looked very familiar, so it should be mine.

I waited a bit, but neither of them made a move to give me any other items. Surprised, I asked, “That’s all? I don’t even have a sword? Where are my clothes?!”

Although I was wearing clothes right now, they consisted only of a simple white shirt and brown pants. My instincts told me that these were not my clothes, and that I needed to get back my original clothes no matter what happened… Those weren’t cheap knock-offs!

“You’re a cleric. Clerics only use staves, not swords.”

Yuna gave a detailed explanation. “Your old clothes can’t be worn anymore either. We found you in the forest, and at that time, you were surrounded by burnt trees and grass. Your entire body was burnt, your clothes blackened and ripped, and your staff… Sorry, but I think that it must have been consumed by the fire.”

Consumed by the fire… Why don’t I feel even a little sad over that fact?

This doesn’t seem quite right, since that should be something very important to me, right? Yet I don’t feel even a little sad over it. If I think about it, maybe it’s actually not something that can be consumed by a fire?

Guess I can leave that to the side for now. I continued asking. “Is there really nothing else?”

Yuna and Sybil both shook their heads.

Really? I touched the area in front of my chest. I still feel as though I should have something else with me… Oh well!

“Alright! Now, the first step is to capture a female virgin…”

“You really want to capture a virgin?” Igor blurted out, shocked. He then glanced at Yuna miserably again before turning to me. “You can’t tell who’s a virgin, so how are you going to catch one?”

I answered matter-of-factly, “How about catching a little girl? After all, when we’re done luring out the unicorn, we can just drop her back at her home!”

“Capturing a little girl? That doesn’t sound very good…” Woodrow replied, somewhat troubled.

“Of course it’s not good! We absolutely cannot do that!” Yuna stared at me very angrily. “We can’t ever do that, or else you’ll definitely regret it. You’re a cleric of the God of Light. Everyone knows that the clerics of the God of Light are the most kind-hearted people around. If you regain your memories after going through with this, you’ll definitely be remorseful for the rest of your life!”

Remorseful for the rest of my life? I froze. Am I…such a nice person?

“Why are you so anxious?” Iacchi snickered. “We don’t need to capture a little girl; we can just hire one!”

He nodded his head, and knowingly said, “We can look for a poor family’s young daughter. For ten copper ducats we can hire her for an entire day. But we must be sure to look for one that’s young enough, or else she might not be a virgin anymore. There’s no helping that, since we’re talking about a poor family’s daughter after all! Ten copper ducats are enough to hire her for an entire day, no matter what you want her to do for you, hehe…”

“Iacchi!” Yuna scolded loudly.

Iacchi shrugged his shoulders, and stopped talking.

I fell silent. After listening to Iacchi talk, I felt a little uncomfortable… Maybe Yuna is right, and I might not actually be a bad guy. If I captured a little girl, I might truly feel remorseful for my entire life… But! Since we can hire one, it should be fine.

No need to capture a little girl, yet the mission is still open to us — I can face my own conscience as well as my love for money this way. It’s really the best of both worlds! I definitely have a lot to learn from Iacchi in the future!

After making up my mind, I smiled at Iacchi. However, for some reason, he only gave me a very sly smirk in return.

“I understand, you can go hire a girl,” Iacchi said. He shook his head, first giving me a look that seemed to say that I was hopeless, then giving me a sly look as he winked his eyes at me. Finally, he muttered, “Bro, aren’t I so nice to you? Whenever you heal me, be sure to put in more effort!”

…Maybe I should not learn from him after all.

“No way!” Yuna immediately opposed that suggestion and decisively said, “Sybil and I will go hire the little girl.”

“Alright then!”

Woodrow immediately agreed and proceeded to split the tasks. “Yuna and Sybil will hire the girl; Iacchi, you’ll continue gathering information. I will go and prepare some equipment for catching the unicorn. Igor, you and Grisia can go off and start the search.”

I looked at Igor and politely said, “Lead the way.”

“No problem, comrade!”

Igor slapped me hard on the shoulder, and then with three parts gallantness and two parts solemnity, said, “Come join me in sending my sword and leather armor off for repair, then we can go have a drink!”

“Huh?” I stopped and asked uneasily, “But the search…”

I looked toward our other teammates, but they had all left one after another, presumably to fulfill their own assigned task.

Igor matter-of-factly answered, “We can always look on the road. A tavern’s also a great place to gather information!”

I stopped short, turning to look at Woodrow who had already walked to the door. Woodrow also turned around and smiled at me, explaining, “Don’t be so nervous. Gathering information isn’t a warrior’s responsibility. I just want him to keep an eye and ear open. I don’t really mean for him to gather information. Also, gathering information isn’t a cleric’s responsibility either. Since you’re accompanying Igor to the tavern, go ahead and get a meal! You slept for such a long time, and even though we fed you syrup, you should be quite hungry, right?”

Clerics are supposed to stay at the back and enjoy the cool air… The sentence suddenly flashed through my mind, although I kind of doubted if this was also “general knowledge.”

“Let’s go! Grisia, join me for a drink…” Igor stopped speaking, looking at me doubtfully before he asked in hesitation, “If we drink a cup or two, you won’t fall drunk, right? You don’t look as if you can hold your liquor.”

Woodrow, who had already walked out of the room, stuck his head in through the doorway again and warned, “Igor, if Grisia can’t hold his liquor, don’t force him to drink. Being a little tipsy is fine, but you can’t get him outright drunk. You know the rules.”

“Fine, how disappointing…” Igor murmured discontentedly.

Wine!

After I heard this, I could not help licking my lips… Maybe I wasn’t someone who couldn’t hold his liquor well after all.

Igor and I walked out into the streets. Even though it was nighttime, the city was still bustling with activity, and throngs of people were moving about. Both sides of the streets were crowded with stalls, and there were various types of items being sold. Different elements of all types merged together, so I had a hard time piecing everything together. However, when I did manage to piece something together, I felt a great sense of accomplishment.

“Grisia!” Igor yelled suddenly.

Bam!

The scene before my eyes turn dark, my forehead hurting so badly that I could only squat down and hold my head with both of my hands…

“My god! Such a big pillar, and you can still slam into it without blinking an eye?” Igor said, stunned. “What the heck are you using your large eyes for?”

So I hit a pillar, no wonder it hurts so badly… I growled furiously, “There’s too much stuff here, so I couldn’t piece things together in time!”

“Piece what together?” Igor asked blankly.

“Ow, it hurts a lot, ow…” I cradled my head and whimpered. This hit really felt as though it had split my head open.

“You hit the pillar hard enough that the pillar even cracked. There’d be something funny going on if it didn’t hurt.” Igor chided me, “You’re a cleric, heal yourself, and when you’re done let’s hurry up and leave. Everyone’s already staring at us.”

Heal myself… After waking up, even though I knew I was a cleric, I had yet to use a healing spell. I wonder what the first step is?

“Minor Heal!”

I blanked out, but holy element had already surrounded me, and then it transformed into a different element before all of it burrowed into my forehead; the more it burrowed, the more the pain lessened.

Oh, so this is the way to perform a healing spell!

An unfamiliar voice started guffawing, saying, “Haha! Igor, I thought you were already very stupid. I can’t believe your friend is even more of an idiot. He even managed to crack a pillar.”

“What? I’m not stupid enough to run right into a pillar… Also, Grisia isn’t stupid!” Igor roared. Halfway through, he noticed his mistake and hurriedly turned his head and explained to me, “Really, you’re not stupid. It’s just that your heavy injuries are barely healed, so your reaction is a bit slow. That’s why you didn’t even notice the pillar, and ran into it just like that.”

…If you hadn’t explained, I might not have even cared, but once you did, all I want to do is grab your head and ram it into the pillar!

“Are you alright? Did the healing spell just now completely heal your injuries?” A rather gentle voice sounded, but unfortunately, it was a guy’s voice.

Before I had the chance to answer, the unfamiliar voice that had called me stupid before started up again.

“Kylie, why do you want to waste another healing spell?” He snappily said, “Even though it’s just a Minor Heal, you can only cast it up to five times a day.”

The man who had such a gentle voice that it could give people goose bumps, Kylie, spoke again. “It shouldn’t be a problem. For the next few days, we won’t be going out of the city, so there’s no need to use Heal.”

I stood up, examining the others. Even though only two people spoke, in actuality there were four people in the group; they looked like a team. The person who had first started talking with Igor seemed to be a warrior, as his wind element was rather high, probably because he focused on speed. The person who had healed me, needless to say, was of course a cleric. His body, naturally emitted the holy element, though it wasn’t as strong as mine.

Does this mean I’m stronger than him?

The guy was facing me, but he questioned Igor instead, “Igor, he isn’t one of your teammates right?”

“Of course he is; he just joined us. Grisia is a cleric.”

“Cleric?” He sounded a little surprised, confusedly asking, “Don’t you guys already have Yuna, a warpriest?”

Igor bragged to him, “Grisia is a cleric of the God of Light, just like the sissy from your team.”

Who’s just like a sissy…

The sissy Kylie gasped, “So you’re actually a comrade from the Church of the God of Light?

“A cleric from the Church of the God of Light? You’re not pulling our legs?”

Igor immediately said, “Of course he is, and Grisia’s healing spells are even very powerful!”

“Really?” Kylie sounded somewhat pleasantly surprised as he said, “You look very young! Being so powerful when you’re this young, that’s really an accomplishment. What level are you at?”

Level? I felt lost. I had absolutely no idea what level I was as a cleric. That I am a cleric was even something others had to tell me, and the fact that clerics have different levels was something that I had heard of only now.

“Grisia doesn’t need to say any incantations to cast Heal!” Igor curiously asked, “Sissy, what level do you think he’s at, huh?”

“Doesn’t need to say any incantations?!”

Kylie shrieked with a resounding voice, making everyone around him jump.

After some time, he finally stuttered out, “This, this… Normally incantations are needed, but if it’s Minor Heal, if it has been used often, maybe the incantations might not be needed! The Cardinals might be able to do it…”

“Cardinals?” I asked. “What are those?”

Kylie fell into silence, barely able to say, “The Cardinals are the four bishops just beneath His Holiness the Pope in rank… You… are you really a cleric?”

“I don’t know either,” I honestly replied.

“You don’t know?” The four people of the other team all widened their eyes.

Igor hurriedly added, “That’s because Grisia lost his memories.”

“Lost his memories?”

They all had a stunned look on their faces. Their reactions were exactly like Woodrow’s and the rest of the team’s when they had first heard this.

After quite a while, the sissy doubtfully said, “Grisia? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a cleric by the name of Grisia!”

Hearing this, I really felt a little disappointed. If there were someone who knew me, then I should be able to find my teammates even faster. But I still politely answered, “It’s alright.”

“I’m very sorry I couldn’t be of any help.” Kylie gave me a very apologetic look, and said, “Maybe you ought to try to go to the Church. For someone who stands out as much as you, there will definitely be a lot of people who know you. However, the Kingdom of Kissinger doesn’t have a branch of the Church of the God of Light, so I’m afraid that you’ll have to head back to the Kingdom of Forgotten Sound, or maybe the Kingdom of Moon Orchid that you’d need to pass through might have a few branches of the Church.”

I nodded and said, “Thank you for the information.”

I lifted my head, pouring an entire bottle of wine down my throat before I was satisfied enough to wipe my mouth.

Beside me, Igor stared at me in astonishment and yelled, “Grisia, stop drinking! You’ve already drunk three bottles! Damn, damn! If Woodrow finds out that I let you get drunk, he’ll kill me for sure…”

I swiveled my head to look at him, and articulately said, “A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked1…Who’s drunk again?”

“Alright…You’re not drunk.”

Igor scratched his head, stood up and said, “Continue drinking then, but don’t you dare to get drunk! I’ll head over first with my sword to the weapons shop next door. Also, I’ll help you pay for your drinks for now, but afterward when we finish our missions and you get your share, you’ll have to repay me!”

“If so, then I’m not going to drink anymore!” I shouted aloud with surprise.

“…”

After walking out of the tavern, I indignantly grumbled, “Can’t you even pay for just a little wine?”

“You’ve already drunk three bottles, that wasn’t just a little wine! The wine you ordered costs a silver ducat each…”

Even though I wanted to say that it was just three silver ducats, I couldn’t so much as speak the words out loud. A bottle of wine actually costs a silver ducat! I had just downed three silver ducats… I hadn’t even received my share of the mission’s rewards, yet I had already incurred a debt of three silver ducats!

Unicorn, where are you?

My hundred gold ducats, where are you?

At this time, Igor started laughing loudly before saying, “However, I really didn’t expect to see you hold your liquor so well! Since we have a mission to complete at the moment, I can’t join you for a round, but some other day when we have no missions, let us men drink to our hearts’ content!”

“You’re paying?” I eagerly asked.

“…You really aren’t a normal miser. You love money even more than Iacchi, and he’s a rogue!” Igor finished mumbling, and then said boisterously, “The one who gets drunk first pays, how about that?”

“No problem!”

As I had lost my memories, I had no idea exactly how much wine I’m able to drink, but I had a strange sense of self-confidence… If it’s a drinking competition, I definitely won’t lose to anyone!

“Here we are.” Igor stopped in his tracks and turned his head around, telling me, “You have no interest in weapons, right? If you feel bored, the street opposite this one sells staves; you can go ahead and choose a new one. The team will pay for it first from our team fund, although in the future we’ll deduct it from your rewards… Geez! Your expression is saying, if you have to pay for it out of your own pocket, you won’t buy it?”

I vigorously nodded my head.

Dumbfounded, Igor said, “The cleric of a team can’t go around without a staff. Forget it! Join me here first, and later we’ll go to the staff shop together. You don’t have your memories right now, so I’m afraid that the owner there will cheat you… eh! Even though that’s not really likely, since you love money so much… So much that it’s as if you can even forget that you had lost your memories.”

“What! I really did lose my memories,” I grandly proclaimed.

“I really can’t tell. You don’t even seem to be worried at all!” Igor chatted with me with his head turned while stepping into the weapons shop.

I shrugged my shoulders and answered, “I just feel that there’s nothing to worry about, and that my comrades will most definitely come and look for me.”

“Guess so…”

The minute we stepped into the weapons shop, the owner immediately stepped forward to greet us, his eyes sweeping in both me and Igor. Immediately, he started attending to Igor, completely ignoring me. Should I say that he has an eye for money-grubbing or a good eye for warriors? With merely one look, he immediately determined that I wasn’t someone who uses a sword in his profession, thus he didn’t even bother to greet me.

Seeing that Igor was talking enthusiastically with the owner, I could only walk around the weapons shop on my own. As far as I could see, the shop’s weapons were still skewed toward swords and knives. Weapons like swords sounded very familiar to me, but staves sounded completely foreign… Do I really use a staff?

Unable to stop myself, I picked up a sword and skillfully waved it around. It feels familiar; maybe I really do use swords… Eh! Where’s the sword?

Confused, I stared at my empty hands. Wasn’t I holding a sword in my hands just now? How could it have disappeared after I merely waved it around twice?

“Ah!” Igor suddenly shouted aloud, and then there was a clanging sound of metal hitting the floor.

I looked back. Oh! So the sword had flown out of my hands, and had squarely hit the back of Igor’s head… Luckily it’s the handle that hit him!

“Grisia, what did you throw at me… Damn it!”

Igor painfully rubbed his head, turned around, stared at the sword on the floor, and then looked at me disbelievingly. I immediately made the world’s most innocent expression to face him, and then I used my most sorrowful tone and repented, “I’m sorry, my hand momentarily slipped.”

“Your slip-up almost took my life… Cleric! You’re not allowed to touch any swords.” Igor unhappily warned me, and then he turned his head back to continue his bargaining with the shop owner.

I walked over, lifted up the sword and put it back at its original place. After that I didn’t dare touch a single weapon… Maybe my weapon really is a staff after all!

At least, if a staff slips out of my hand and hits someone, it won’t cause someone’s death.

Not being able to touch anything really bored me. Looking at Igor who was still in a heated debate with the shop owner, I thought they would probably still have to haggle about the price for a long time. So I yelled, “Igor, I’m going to head over and look at the staves first.”

“Okay, but don’t buy any yet!” Igor didn’t even look at me when he replied.

“Alright.”

After I promised him that, I walked out of the weapons shop and did a search. Immediately, I discovered that opposite the weapons shop was another shop that had a fake wooden staff hanging on each side of its door. That should be the shop that Igor had mentioned earlier.

I started crossing the street, but suddenly, I felt my sleeve being tugged… Who is it!?

It really shocked me that someone could suddenly appear close to me… I could see in all directions, so no one should be able to come so close yet be unnoticed!

I turned around and faced the person, but because of that I could no longer keep my guard up. The person who had tugged on my sleeve only reached my chest in height, had a round face, had hair reaching the waist, and wore a long skirt… It’s obviously a little girl!

Maybe I had been too fixated on searching for the staff shop opposite the street, so that was why I hadn’t noticed her!

I lowered my head to look at her, and in a gentle voice asked, “Hello, what’s your name?”

The little girl shyly replied, “Scarlet2.”

Scarlet? What a strange name. I continued asking, “Did you want big brother to do something for you, Scarlet?”

“Big brother… Come with me!”

Scarlet suddenly stopped tugging on my sleeve, instead using both hands to pull my right hand, and just like that she began dragging me off with her forcefully. I quickly explained to her, “Wait, wait a minute, I’m waiting for my comrade, so I can’t just go off with you.”

Yet Scarlet didn’t give up, and wholeheartedly pulled me along. At the same time, she continued exclaiming, “Come with me, come with me…”

Of course I couldn’t just be dragged along by a little girl; even though I may be a weak cleric, I’d never allow it! However, Scarlet was very determined, so the two of us were stuck in this stalemate for quite some time. Finally, Scarlet’s eyes that were brimming with the water element managed to defeat me successfully.

I could only bring her along to the weapons shop. I poked my head in. Igor was still bargaining with the shop owner, and it looked as though that wouldn’t end for quite a while. I yelled to him, “Igor, I’m going off first. Let’s meet later at the staff shop, alright?”

“That’s fine.” Igor again didn’t even bother turning his head around to reply, and continued arguing with the shop owner.

After getting his agreement, I hugged my chest with both arms, looked down toward Scarlet and said brusquely, “Alright then! Now I’m yours, so you can take me to wherever it is you wanted to take me, happy?”

Scarlet immediately smiled, and the water element in her eyes also vanished without a trace.

I was dragged along the entire way by Scarlet, and we turned at a countless number of street corners. Luckily, I noticed that my memory seemed to be quite good. Even when we turned left three times, turned right five times, and then walked through a five-way intersection’s third street from the left, I could still remember the entire way.

Even though I remember the path, it won’t do if I walk too far, as I still have to look for the unicorn… No, I mean I have to look for Igor!

I curiously asked, “Scarlet, where are you taking me to?”

Scarlet let out a tinkling laugh like silver bells and pulled me along to turn into another alley, before finally stopping and pointing to the front. She said softly, “See for yourself, big brother!”

I turned to “look” toward where Scarlet pointed… Even though there was still some distance between us, I saw what Scarlet wanted to show me clearly. Although I had lost my memories and had no idea whether I had ever seen such a thing before, when I looked at it I almost immediately knew what it was…

It was a unicorn.

It was just in the basement of a house, and the holy element radiating off of it was so strong it was startling. Even though there were a lot of different elements separating us, I could still clearly see its form. Its shape indeed looked like a horse, but it was somewhat finer and more elegant than a normal horse.

The most obvious difference between it and a regular horse was the horn on its head. The holy element from the horn was so strong that I had a feeling that I couldn’t “look” at it for long periods of time, and the shape was also a bit blurry.

Then, it suddenly lifted its head and looked in my direction… No! It is looking at “me.”

It looked at me, just like how I was looking at it.

After quite some time, I finally recovered from the shock of seeing a unicorn for the first time. I lowered my head and said, “Did it want you to look for me? Scarlet… Scarlet?”

There was no one beside me.

I blanked out, but I didn’t feel particularly surprised. After all, I was currently someone without memories. There were too many things that I didn’t understand. Maybe being able to conjure a little girl is actually a special ability of unicorns.

I walked toward where the unicorn was and stepped into a house. The interior was quite ruined, with debris everywhere and cobwebs on almost everything. The floor was also covered in a thick layer of dust, as if no one had come here for a few hundred years. No wonder no one had thought of coming here to look for the unicorn, but… How had the unicorn gotten down into the basement?

As I could already “see” it, I knew it was originally sitting on the floor. But the moment it noticed me walking toward it, it stood up and kept walking around in circles in the basement, looking as if it was very excited.

I quickened my steps even more, found the stairs leading to the basement, and ran toward where the unicorn was in one dash.

It’s just in front of me, just five steps away… No, it stepped closer by two steps again.

Although I couldn’t even determine whether Sybil was pretty or not, I knew that this unicorn before my eyes was definitely extraordinarily beautiful, and that it should definitely be a snow-white animal of elegance.

Wait a minute, snow-white? I still have some memory of snow — it should be something formed from the condensation of water — but what is “white?”

At this moment, the unicorn suddenly stepped forward again, standing before me, even nudging its head against me.

“You like me, don’t you?”

I smiled at it, and even stretched out my hand to stroke the side of its neck. It arched its neck, looking as if it was enjoying it a lot, and then it even lowered its head to lick my hand…

“That tickles, don’t do that, hahaha! Don’t you only like virgins? I’m not a…” I stopped short. Wait a minute…

Could it be that, I am a pure, innocent… virgin?!

The unicorn then even more intimately started rubbing its head against my chest, its entire head nestled against me.

“Stupid horse, go away! I’m not a virgin!”

The unicorn however, started licking my face… Bastard, am I so pure that you’re willing to lick me?!

“I know! Maybe I’m only eighteen.”

I suddenly thought of this and mumbled to myself, “If so, then it wouldn’t be surprising if I am a virgin… That’s it! Definitely, I’m only eighteen, no! I might only be sixteen even!”

Footnotes

1 “A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked”: The original tongue twister here translates to “Eat grapes but don’t spit out the grape skin, don’t eat grapes until spitting out the grape skin.” It is a famous and popular Chinese tongue-twister, but once translated, it’s no longer much of a tongue twister, so an English tongue twister was used here.

2 “Scarlet”: A direct translation of her name from Chinese is “Red Poem.” We chose to retain the color part of her name but chose a more lyrical translation to capture the fact that her name isn’t just based on color.

    Oh dear, sun loses his memory and immediately thinks he’s several yers younger? Looks like he’s got more in common with neo and the pope than he thought.

  2. Wow! This is the first time i have seen the site without any previous comments posted yet. :)) Your Facebook page really helps!!!!
    Thanks!

    This statement had me really guffawing “Could it be that, I am a pure, innocent… virgin?!”

    You made my day, Prince Revolution!!!!!!

  3. Ahahaha, it had occurred to me that Grisia was a virgin, but I wasn’t so sure about the “Pure” part! Maybe it’s a result of his lost memories…

  4. Ahahahaha! Poor Sun, to realize he was a virgin because of a unicorn.

  5. Gohankuten

    I knew the unicorn would be perverted. Look it’s licking Grisa all over.

      my god, how do you remember all that? and who is the female looking npc that is actually male? unless you’re talking about Western Wind, but he/she isn’t an npc. My God, any way you made my entire day with this comment

  6. Akaittou

    So pure, so innocent. As if. That has to be some very odd unicorn to like Grisia that much, even though he is a virgin. xD

  7. Wow…
    This chapter was great!!!
    The sword slipping out of Grisia’s hand and the fact that he thinks he’s younger then his rreal age is just so funny =D
    Thank you for uploading this chapter=D

  8. I’ve always thought that getting one’s chest rubbed by a unicorn’s head is not really a good thing… Wouldn’t you get skewered? ;)

    Thanks for the chappie.

  9. poor poor sun not only do u reseamble a preaty girl u even have a unicorn now

  10. can the unicorn fix his sight????!!! I hope it does, though him running into pillars seems like a fun way to spend a day, especially since he has to be graceful about it. LOL

  11. Aww! New chapter, best birthday present ever :D Thank you so much for the translation ^.^

    Poor Grisia, still a virgin xD his reaction was priceless, absolutely priceless! and when the sword flew away from his hands, LOL, I could just imagine the look on his teachers face if he´d have been there and seen it XD

  12. You know, I have the vaguest feeling that this unicorn is somehow going to result in him being hated to the core, beyond words, beyond description, by every Sun Knight that will come after him, ever.

  13. This chapter is soooooooooooo epic!! hahahaha im so excited! what will happen when the people from the Church of the God of light saw Sun with his real self!? Im looking forward to that!

  14. Can it be that the girl was Pink? But would she choose a childlike body again? Or can unicorns really show projections?
    Anyway, I’m looking forward to their shocking faces when they see Grisia using all kind of magic all at once. Since there are no restrictions on him anymore, he will be even more powerful I bet *_*
    But when I also hope that Judgement will find him soon, since I doubt that anyone in Grisia’s company will ever be able to guess that this money-grubbing person is the ever-smiling, pure and elegant sun knight.

  15. (grinning from ear to ear)
    A bottle of wine, one silver ducat.
    A unicorn, five hundred gold ducats.
    Grisia’s reaction when he learns he’s a virgin… is priceless.
    (roaring with laughter)
    Thanks for the chapter, I can barely wait for the next.

  16. Ahahahaha! Will poor Sun be kicked out and forced to travel often now that he’ll bump into and BREAK all of the Pope’s expensive pillars??!?

    “‘If so, then I’m not going to drink anymore!’ I shout aloud with surprise.”
    “shout” should be “shouted” to stay consistent.

    • @Ozzien
      Thank you! That has been changed.

    • Achilleus

      @Ozzien
      As long as there is no marked in the church of light Sun won’t bump into pillars. Might I remind you that many knights saw Sun run arround in the church without suspecting he’s blind. So usually he sees all pillars but this time he was distracted by all the hard to distinguish items.

    • Gohankuten

      @Achilleus
      And the fact that he lost his memory and thus doesn’t have full grasp on his power anymore so he got overwhelmed.

    • Shoetsu Otaku

      @Gohankuten
      im wondering how it got into Grisa’s mind that the way he “sees” isnt unusual to him. has he gotten that accustomed to it?

  17. Ren the Witch

    Excellent translation guys!

  18. LOL. Grisia’s reactions are so funny. I love how Yu Wo set it up for Grisia to be the virgin bait! (Admit it. Some of you had an inkling.) Being a virgin and having an ungodly amount of holy light, what unicorn would not love Grisia to pieces despite his personality? (Big smile)

    P.S. You might want to make these changes.
    “My god%r1 Such a big pillar…” Err… Shouldn’t it be “My gods such a big pillar?”
    ” I #radled my head…” You might want to replace the # with a “c.”
    Finally, I recommend replacing “k” with a space here: “downkmy throat.”

    Thank you for the translation!

  19. I found a big typo area:
    “My god%r1 Such a big pillar, and you can still slam into it without blinking an eye?” Igor said, stunned. “What the heck are you using your large eyes for?”

    So I hit a pillar, no wonder it hurts so badly… I growled furiously, “There’s too much stuff here, so I couldn’t piece things together in time!”

    “Piece what together?” Igor asked blankly.

    “Ow, it hurts a lot, ow…” I #radled my head and whimpered.

  20. ooglyboogly

    “… pouring an entire bottle of wine downkmy throat”
    should be “down my throat” :)

  21. That is hysterical. Can’t wait to see how this one plays out, especially the next time he runs into a holy knight that actually knows who he is…

  22. Well… I’m really not surprised Sun’s a virgin… He is the Sun Knight after all….

    “‘….For someone who stands out as much as you, there w)ll definitely…….'”
    “w)ll” should be “will”
    “I lifted my head, pouring an entire bottle of wine downkmy throat before I was satisfied enough to wipe my mouth.”
    “downkmy” should be “down my”

  23. oooooh~ i thought his element sensing couldnt be so easy~ XD
    miserness shall never fall
    and pffft XD everyone saw this one coming, yay unicorn~

    and hmm…am i the only one suspicious of scarlet?
    at first i thought she might be pink except that one hint popped up in this page regarding her element…
    given the sentience of that assassin outfit I am going to theorize that the little girl is the embodiment of ‘Eternal Tranquility’ and thats why Sun doesn’t have it on him! (despite having his precious brigadine which would have certainly been taken from him if the eternal tranquility was)
    also given that he is definitely in the dark god kingdom im pretty positive that pink is behind all of this and that somehow he mannaged to get away XD
    now knowing that he has trouble if there is to much at once, i can imagine pink being able to sneak up on him if she used some sorta rare item

    • @Jasae Bushae
      oh~ and to add on to my theory, the eternal tranquility was described as an azure gem~

    • @Jasae Bushae
      But azure means blue. The little girl says her name is Scarlet.
      Blue =/= red

    • @Jasae Bushae
      Interesting theory! Scarlet is definitely suspicious. My first thought was also that she was Pink, but hmm… Although Pink does seem to be fond of tricks and games, it feels a little too roundabout for her. I will one up your theory and say that Scarlet is the embodiment, or a physical projection, of Dragon’s Saint Brigandine!

      Although it’s still early in the book, the badge could be the eponymous dragon. I’ve always been skeptical of that blood-sucking shirt. It’d be one thing if it needed blood to activate, but to only require blood at the end of the transformation makes it seem like it’s being saved up for something. Grisia’s even questioned where the blood goes. Not to mention it was a gift from Pink. That alone is enough to be wary it.

      I also thought it sounded highly suspicious when Grisia described the badge as having a very strong dark element and “a very imposing-looking… animal.” I know it can be easily explained that he simply forgot what animal it was, but at the same time, I can’t shake the feeling that Yu Wo didn’t want to use the word ‘dragon’ and possibly cause readers to link it to the book and chapter titles. As for Grisia not sensing Scarlet approaching or leaving, it could be that she was there all along in the form of the badge.

    • @黒
      Well that there is another interesting theory~
      oh! and i have another point i just realized to point away from pink! in this chapter the mysterious little girl grabs grislas hand and pulls him along. exceeept~ that pink has no body temperature because shes a corpse. and lacking any warmth to her touch is something that sun would probably be clever enough to notice~

    • @Jasae Bushae
      Ah, you’re right! Completely missed that. On a side note, I wonder if Grisia’s amnesia was the objective of his attacker or an unfortunate side effect.

  24. Poor Grisia, the only virgin on the team. I wonder how the girls will feel with the virgin little girl basically costing them ten copper ducats for nothing.

    Is that Unicorn a girl then? So Grisia finally gets a girl, just not the right species.

  25. I touched the area in front of my chest. I still feel as though I should have something else with me… Oh well!
    Sun!!! Your eternal tranquility!!! Now your teacher going to kill you!!!

  26. Thanks for the chapter! Haha! So nice to see Grisia just being him but I’m starting to miss Sun at the holy temple. haha.

    Btw… saw some typo errors:

    “My god%r1 Such a big pillar, and you can still slam into it without blinking an eye?”

    “Ow, it hurts a lot, ow…” I #radled my head and whimpered. This hit really felt as though it had split my head open.

  27. Starfire 19

    Thank you so much for this :D love the way its water element in her eyes, not tears :D
    btw, i think there are a couple of typing errors, theres ‘“Ow, it hurts a lot, ow…” I #radled my head and whimpered.’, ‘For someone who stands out as much as you, there w)ll definitely be a lot of people who know you.’ and ‘“My god%r1 Such a big pillar, and you can still slam into it without blinking an eye?’ :) but thank you so much again :D

  28. lol loved this chapter and ‘i’m a virgin?!’
    and isnt scarlet the new pink?

  29. J Luc Pitard

    Thank you! Great chapter and I love that the author uses such a common trope as amnesia, but gives it a wonderful comedic twist. And now he finds not only a horse, but a unicorn that he is probably destined to be with.

  30. When sun hit the pillar there were a couple typos one had a % and the other had a #

    Thanks for the chapter

  31. dollyfishe

    “My god%r1 Such a big pillar,
    “Ow, it hurts a lot, ow…” I #radled

    i cant find one more typos @@ but it’s w))ll somewhere near these two.

    anyway, thanx for updating ^___^

    • dollyfishe

      @dollyfishe
      For someone who stands out as much as you, there w)ll definitely be a lot of people who know you.

      found it ^^
      all those typos on the second story ^___^
      and thanx again for the update. it’s become a habit on loading this site every morning every doing anything else hehhehe

  32. Thanks everyone for your comments! The problem with the symbols has been fixed. It’s probably an error caused by direct copying and pasting from Word.

  33. =D I leave for four days and there’s two new chapters! \o/

    O.o *listening to Who Killed U.N. Owen while reading the chapter*
    Scarlet… Is now reminding me of Flandre Scarlet… And that could be bad…
    *playlist sends Kagome Kagome next*

    More scary little girls? Now all we need is Pink back…

  34. thanks for the new chap!
    is it possible that at the prologue pink battled with sun somehow….and pink took that eternal tranquility? cause his badge was still there…which pink gave to him…just a thought~

  35. Awesome chapter! Sun, you should be praying not to bump into your teacher… If he learns that u lost the eternal tranquility (or whatever it was called) then u’ll be killed and resucited over and over again until you’re reborn as a death knight in order to retrieve your master’s precious gem!! XD

    This chapter was truly EPIC, i bet the unicorn is female, lol, hence it’s attracted to our virginal and heavenly pure grisia ahahaha

    Thank you for the translation :D

  36. Achilleus

    What I’m wondering… If Sun can cast healing spells without incantations and he’s put on a level just below pope… what kinda mage rank would he have as he can cast spells without a incantation and even mix several elements without an incantation?

    And if the unicorn becomes his steed how will he get it out of the city? Will it stay with him if he ever lost his viginity? So many questions :)

    • Gohankuten

      @Achilleus
      This is Sun we are talking about. He can hide just about anything if he really wants to. And actually Sun is higher level than the Pope. This has been shown multiple times with different holy things. And the name for Suns level would be God level since he would rival gods with his powers lol.

  37. NanoLaughing

    Ha! Sun is 25 years old! ONLY loves the God of Light, OF COURSE HE’S A VIRGIN.

  38. babezilla

    Firstly, for the people working on this: thank you for your hard work!
    Secondly, I don’t think it was Pink whom he fought! I mean Pink wouldn’t seriously hurt him….he was after all the only reason she stayed in the town where the Church of the God of Light was (surrounded by the holy element and confined in her house) she is after all way to good to be providing undead for an occupation. She found Sun interesting (and remember she had lived for a very ling time) maybe he was her only friend (considering she was a necromancer and her “peculiarity”). Plus, Sun had a knack at making powerful friends, and remember how he is acting natural even in the companion of a dark elf, a “creature” like her would definitely appreciate such treatment. She does not seem to be evil either, she even helped her underling flight with his lover (and I doubt she had anything to gain from it ). Moreover, the only thing he remembers when waking up is a threat, and threatening just does not seem to be her thing, she is strong enough to kill him if she really wanted, why waste her breath? I think Sun is more evil than her in a way, not that I don’t love him either way.
    I think he ended up so far away from home because of the badge Pink gave him, it saved his life by transporting him to Pink or was it the crystal ? It is just a hunch, it does sound a little far-fetched for now though…
    Anyway, I cannot wait for the next chapters, just imagine the endless possibilities….there are just too many funny events that could be happening from now on!

  39. Sunflowerduck

    Thank you all for the translations! :D This chapter was what I expected and more—I’m squee-ing at the end part. Gah, but how’s Sun going to handle the situation? >-<

  40. I lifted my head, pouring an entire bottle of wine downkmy throat before I was satisfied enough to wipe my mouth. <- just a little typo mistake there.

    But everything else is EPIC! It was really funny how Grisia found out that he was a virgin and just how he thought of a reason immediately to justify it. Haha. Though I really doubt about the pure part.

    And really. I think the unicorn is taking advantage*ahem*harrassing Grisia. Poor poor Grisia. XD

  41. OH MY GOD!!!!! I burst out laughing when unicorn came to Grisia
    Igor, my condolences to you. You will lose half of the gold ducats by paying for Grisia’s drinks.

  42. Where’s the Eternal Tranquility or whatever? The water gem thingy? Wasn’t that on Sun?

    • bmwerks

      @Tory
      i think thats what he was feeling for on his chest, i have a feeling thats what will have him going afte the dragon. it will be like hmm lets weigh this neo or dragon whose wrath would i rather face?…. ok lets go make dragon kabobs lol

  43. bmwerks

    Lol i thought that grisia would be sufficient when they first mentioned the virgin! :D im pretty sure scarlet is pink in a new body. I so wanted them to find out how he is so i could see how they responded especially when they asked “what level are you?”. would have been like level: God Mode! lol thanks for the chapter guys keep it up!!!!!!!

  44. “they consisted only of a simple white shirt and brown pants”
    Lol I thought Sun could not see color.

  45. Little Writer

    I think that Sun was looking for the Sun Knight crest on his chest, since I bet that Neo probably was the cause of Sun’s memory loss. A graceful beating? ABSOLUTELY! The Eternal Tranquility was probably taken by Neo after the battle.
    What I think is funny is Sun’s “holy” level. The holy element within Sun is surprising. I would think such a dastardly person would have an aura black as night, but never mind…His level, by the way, is “Grisia”. Not even the God of Light could beat that one ^^
    Grisia Sun, what are you going to do next?

    • starnorma

      @Little Writer
      but in the side stories, it seems like Neo thinks Grisia would be too powerful as an adult for him to actually succeed in beating him up. Besides what reason would he have for beating him up?

  46. I think the only time Sun mentioned an element with Scarlet was when he saw water element in her eyes (tears.. possibly crocodile tears, currently we can’t tell.) In fact, didn’t he mention that Pink does NOT exude a dark element, but seems to have a much more creepy lack of element associated with her…? As seen with Pink and Roland walking around town with Grisia, the Sun Knight platoon noticed that Roland had holy element and could definitely tell when he had dark element, but never made mention of Pink. If scarlet is the same (or, even if she is the new Pink..) this would completely explain how she could sneak up on Grisia. Its a choice to exude element. When she didn’t he could not see her at all.

  47. For some reason I feel like Pink is actually the shadow god or something and that is why the Silent-Eagle was so respectful to her……. Anyway on this chapter I am a little sad that sun lost his memory TT_TT however who knows what destruction he is going to cause when he can use his true potential not as a knight?????

  48. missreadsalot

    ….How is Grisa pure? If I recall correctly he’s a necromancer (which isn’t considered pure), he is friends with a Death Lord, is best friends with Judgement Knight (even though he’s truly not bad the unicorn doesn’t know this), managed to make a king resign, managed to marry the princess to a knight, threatened a princess and a member of a different religious group, exacted his revenge, and anything else I didn’t mention. Grisa may have lost his memories but you cannot erase the past so shouldn’t he be extremely unpure? I don’t think that any amount of holy light could cover that amount of impurity anyway.

    On other news, Neo is gonna kill him!!!!! Not to mention Judgement, Roland, and Leaf when they find him…. :) (sorry, I just can’t wait for the scene.)

    • NeoWarrior

      @missreadsalot

      only a pure virgin will the unicorn approach. He is virgin, he is pure evil. What else do you need?
      There is more than one kind of purity :P

  49. NeoWarrior

    Scarlet is the Dragon, who will fall in love with Grisia’s holy aura + personality combination, thus appearin as if Grisia defeated a dragon, when in reality e befrieds a dragon…

    • NeoWarrior

      @NeoWarrior
      Quick question:
      Neo + Anger at Grisia for losing the gem + being killed and attempted revival by Pink + outrage => Death Lord Neo

      Death Lord Powers + Neo’s usual invincibility + Grisia’s cowardice to his master = K.O.

      If faced against Death Lord Neo, what would you do (other than suicide).

    • Seraphim

      @NeoWarrior
      I would of course ask Neo to train me as he seems to desire fighting a strong opponent and I’d probably get a few more years to live and maybe even enough skill to escape him.

  50. Has anyone else thought that the unicorn could be attracted to Grisia because of his strong holy element and not because he’s a virgin? I just don’t see how the unicorn could possibly sense/know that.

  51. So, where is that necklace Sun got from his teacher? I thought he always have to wear or keep it with him or bad things will happen. The girl didn’t give it to him, but only the badge?

  52. “The Cardinals are the four bishops just beneath His Holiness the Pope in rank…
    I’m a bit confused here. I remember that in the v2c1 it was stated that there are 2 Cardinals. Why are there now 4 of them?

    • The Cardinals mentioned here aren’t the Priest of Brilliance and the Priest of Radiance. They are different positions.

      Cardinals – 红衣主教. These are the four bishops. (主教)
      Cardinal of Light – 光明祭司. This position is divided into two, the Priest/Bishop of Radiance and Brilliance.

      That’s my understanding! The translation terms chosen are very similar, so it’s a little confusing.
