The Legend of Sun Knight Side Stories
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Unbeatable Part 1: Prologue – translated by dahlys
“You are really strong, Neo…”
“Then why are you so worried about me?”
Neo Sun looked at his colleague of thirty years, Chasel Judgment. He was the person who ought to know Neo best.
That was why he couldn’t really understand why Chasel had stopped him just as they were about to leave the Holy Temple, after handing over the reins to the next generation of the Twelve Holy Knights. After asking where he wanted to go, Chasel’s face had very clearly become worried.
Worried? But all Neo wanted to do was go around adventuring! With his strength, what was there to be worried about?
Seeing Neo’s slightly impatient expression, Chasel sighed and said, “At least promise me that you will find a companion for your adventuring.”
“I don’t need a companion,” Neo answered confidently. I can deal with all kinds of danger, and even if I can’t, having a companion would be useless as that person would even hinder my escape. So why should I find one?
This is what I’m most worried about, thought Chasel.
Chasel said tactfully, “Why don’t I go with you to the Adventurers’ Guild in the city to help you search for a party?”
“There’s no need for that!” Neo rolled his eyes and snapped unhappily, “I don’t want to be in a party, it’s annoying as hell! Okay, don’t say any more. I’m going adventuring now, and will come back to see everyone when I have the time.”
“Don’t say any more, I’m leaving.” Neo shot Chasel a glare out of the corner of his eye. With absolute confidence, he said, “And you can’t stop me.”
The moment he heard that, Chasel was outraged. He was worried about him, yet this guy still spoke to him in such a tone!
“Then leave! I hope that the God of Light will bless this journey of yours.”
On hearing Chasel’s icy voice, Neo glanced at his companion’s face. As expected, his expression was extremely grim. It seemed that Chasel was a little angry, but his anger was nothing to be afraid of. Also, Neo was leaving soon, so why should he care about what Chasel thought?
After that, he left without looking back.
Chasel frowned slightly as he watched Neo’s fading figure. He still felt extremely uneasy. At that moment, he heard the sound of footsteps behind him. He turned around and saw the corner of a robe with many golden patterns sewn onto it. Besides the Pope, no one else in the Church of the God of Light would wear such robes.
The Pope walked a few steps forward and stood next to Chasel in the doorway of the Holy Temple. He looked out at the distant Neo, and said, “Why are you so worried? Even if Neo is no longer favored by the God of Light, he is still inhumanly strong.”
Chasel sighed and said gloomily, “Can’t cook, can’t wash his own clothes and never mind reading a map, he can’t even differentiate between directions. Also, he doesn’t even know that ‘tree branches can be used to start a fire!’ It could be said that he doesn’t know anything besides swordplay. In addition, he has never saved much money and doesn’t have much cash with him. What’s worse is that he’s not even sure how much most things cost! Still, he wants to go adventuring alone and live by himself… Can he really survive like that?”
The Pope looked at the steadily shrinking back of the holy knight in the distance, and revealed the exact same expression of worry as Chasel. He shook his head and sighed as he said, “You’re right, Chasel. You’ve been right for thirty years. Neo has indeed always been a person that causes others to worry about him.”
“He has even raised a Sun Knight that is equally worrying.”
Chasel sighed and thought about the new Sun Knight’s unique personality… Hopefully Lesus can handle him.
Suddenly hearing a voice behind him, Chasel turned around. He saw two people, one in front of the other, jogging toward him. The movements of the person in front were very graceful, even though he was jogging. Even his head of golden hair bounced rhythmically like dancing musical notes. He looked… extremely annoying!
This extremely annoying-looking person was Neo’s successor, the recently promoted Sun Knight, Grisia Sun.
Could the ability to raise such a child actually be a type of talent? Chasel really couldn’t understand what kind of insanity had led Neo to raise his successor into the Sun Knight most like the legends!
After all, in order to raise such a child, he had to make an example of himself. As long as it was a situation in which Grisia was present, he had to be especially elegant. In the end, he unconsciously became remarkably elegant… Was this what they called “when one harms others, one harms oneself”?
Chasel was not very sure what to say about this. Then again, over the past thirty years, Neo often did things that harmed everybody, including himself.
While Chasel was musing, Grisia and his vice-captain had jogged up to him and were saluting him respectfully.
Chasel returned the salute while chiding, “Your teacher has already left. From now onward, you have to depend upon yourself. Even if you run into difficulties, you can no longer rely on your teacher. Understood?”
Grisia was silent for a moment. He then smiled brilliantly and said in a sincere tone, “Former Knight-Captain Judgment, today, we can see just how much the God of Light blesses the people as he bathes us in sunlight. My teacher has begun his adventure in the most perfect manner, but I wonder if because of a beautiful mistake of the God of Light, my teacher has forgotten something very minor. This thing may be unimportant, but as my teacher has always taught me, we must not ignore doing a good deed, no matter how insignificant it is, as we must also never do a bad deed even when the consequences are trivial. Although this thing may be unimportant, not having it may cause severe difficulties…”
Chasel turned around expressionlessly and looked at the current vice-captain of the Sun Knight Platoon, Adair. The latter immediately understood and began explaining automatically, “Knight-Captain Sun– No! The former Knight-Captain Sun has forgotten to take his luggage.”
“… After him.”
