Volume 4: Chapter 12


Volume 4: Chapter 12 – Heavenly Sun Devouring Hound

I slowly rose from the ground, my body glowing with light. I raised my head. The Gold Dan from my upper dantian surged with magic power that filled my entire body. I gathered the light elements to make an approximately five meter in diameter pillar and made it fly toward Feng Liang.

“Light magician!” The surrounding students gasped.

With my magic power at the time, Brilliant Empire was very different from before. When the violent Wind Tornado and Brilliant Empire spells collided, Feng Liang’s magic power was unexpectedly very powerful. This was probably related to the way his spell was cast.

Atop the field, a hurricane began swirling into existence. I was pushed back three steps by his Wind Tornado as I wasn’t prepared for it. The air that was lost came back again.


Feng Liang was fine, but he looked shocked. “You could actually easily counter my violent storm wind!”

I dusted the dirt off my body. “It’s been some time since someone placed me in a disadvantageous position. The magic spell you just used was great! Is that your original spell?”

Feng Liang nodded. “I made Wind Tornados spinning in opposite directions to collide. The final, fused Wind Tornado has a very strong offensive power.”

I was surprised. “Your magic control is really strong. Let’s continue! I want to see if you have any other exceptional spells. Any spells weaker than the one you used just now will be useless against me.”

Feng Liang couldn’t help but smile. “You’re interesting for warning your opponent. A good opponent such as yourself is really hard to find. I shall let you experience my Ri family’s traditional magic spell.”

After hearing that he was going to use a traditional spell, my heart trembled in fear as I remembered how disastrous it had been when I previously fought with Hai Shui. I instantly raised my guard and secretly started to gather my magic power in my right hand.

Feng Liang quickly chanted and six walls of wind swiftly gathered in front of him to protext him. ‘It was obvious that it is to gain some times to cast the more powerful spell. Seeing how cautious he was, I knew that the long spell he was chanting wouldn’t be easy to counter.’  

I waved my right hand and a huge light blade struck his defensive wall of wind. Feng Liang’s facial expression suddenly changed. “The day lights up in the sky, the heavenly hound shall descend. It is impossible to resist and will engulf everything and bring endless darkness to the land—Heavenly Sun Devouring Hound!

Once my light blade succeeded in breaking his walls of wind, he finished chanting the spell. Feng Liang’s face paled and his blond hair turned black and straightened. His eyes seemed to emit a light. He started to chant something I didn’t understand. A dark aura surrounded his body.

When the light blade struck at his head, the dark aura vigorously scraped against the blade. The light elements unexpectedly started to diffuse and no longer released their powers.   

‘I was scared! What was that magic? Why did it seem so similar to that magic clan’s bamboo pole’s magic? Wasn’t Feng Liang from the Ri family? How could he know dark magic?’  

Mu Zi, who was in the crowd watching the match, showed a strange expression and was very interested in the spell Feng Liang cast.

The black aura surrounding Feng Liang thickened. He started to speak in a foreign language. “This is our Ri family’s Heavenly Sun Devouring Hound spell! You are lucky that I only recently inherited the spell. The main special effect of the spell is that it can engulf everything, including magic elements. I hope that you will not be the first sacrifice to this spell! Hehehehe…”

Hai Yue who was behind him was also frightened by his evil appearance. She had never imagined that her prince on a white horse could become so cold. He was like a totally different person.

I was totally frightened from his sudden change and hurriedly chanted, “Righteous, gentle, warm, serious, strict lights and lights of destruction! Please gather at my side and become endless light rays to exterminate all evil and bring salvation to the world!—- Infinite Radiant Lights!” This was my last trump card, the advanced spell I had only learned recently.

Feng Liang’s spell finished. He suddenly let out a long, mourning cry. The black aura surrounding his body surged out and formed a huge hound shape before pouncing towards me.

A strong pressure suddenly covered the area. My body began to radiate golden lights. They were from my upper Dantian’s Gold Dan, a clear, spherical, transparent golden ball the size of a ping pong ball that could increase my magic power. All I could do was release it to increase my magic power gathering speed. The light elements from my surroundings started to gather. Under my control, my Gold Dan released a ray of gentle, one meter in diameter golden light, and shot it towards the ‘Heavenly Hound’.

The ‘Heavenly Hound’ in the air opened its mouth to try and devour the golden light. I could feel my magic power quickly decreasing. Feng Liang’s situation was also not that good. Once the ‘Heavenly Hound’ started to absorb the golden light, his entire body shivered and he coughed out a mouthful of blood. He continued to bitterly hold on as supporting the spell used a lot of his energy. He continued to chant foreign words and his body kept supplying dark energy to the ‘Heavenly Hound’.

‘This couldn’t carry on. If I allowed him to continue supporting the spell, my power would eventually weaken and the spell would totally engulf me along with with my magic spell! I could only fight using all of my abilities.’

I thought of my total failure in defeating him as I made the Gold Dan emit golden light and simultaneously made it go towards the mouth of the ‘Heavenly Hound’. As the Gold Dan and the golden light vanished in the huge mouth of the ‘Heavenly Hound’, I got nervous. If I couldn’t defeat it with that move, my chances of succeeding would decrease, even if I was to recover all of my lost magic power.’

The ‘Heavenly Hound’ that was in the air tumbled and slowly lost its Hound shape. “Peng!” The ‘Heavenly Hound’ exploded, leaving the dim Gold Dan in the air. I immediately used my remaining power to retrieve it. I had used a lot of magic power, but luckily the Gold Dan hadn’t been completely used up.

Feng Liang showed a strange expression and I started to shout. Not good! Feng Liang spat out a mist of blood. Blood came gushing out from all seven of his apertures and he fell to the ground.

I used short distance teleportation to move to his side. ‘Previously I really couldn’t have held back! If not, I really would’ve been engulfed by that magic spell.’

When I appeared in front of him, his hair had gone back to normal. He was in a severe condition. I immediately used my remaining power to cast a recovery spell to stabilize his condition.

    1. Well, don’t forget that the MC Zhang Gong here has jack shit for experience. He hasn’t reached the limits of what he can do with the tools he already has more likely than not while he faces people who use the knowledge and teachings of other people to pull out the limits of what they can use even if they don’t understand the principles behind how they’re doing it. In the end Zhang Gong is going to be significantly more powerful due to an excessively solid, but for now he’s at a disadvantage.

      1. Even so, he has loads more experience than the other dude. He went adventuring, while the other guy was playing around with girls.
        It’s pathetic that he had to go all out to win.

  1. protext –> protect
    I’m having trouble to copy the sentence on your webpage so I just type in ‘protext –> protect’ instead. Sorry.

  2. Disappointing. I don’t understand why they bother making him seem so powerful just to then make him almost lose a duel to a nobody with no experience or real strength. He should be on a completely different level at this point, but nope, he appears weak as hell. Wouldn’t surprise me if he was beaten by that average looking girl he is eventually going to fall in love with. Meh.

  3. The way he fights is so childish… You would expect he learnt how to combine Spatel and light magic properly, i mean cmon you could for example summon light sword and teleport towards the people casting spells and Interrupt them. It’s so inefficient the way he always goes head to head in a power battle.

  4. Magister is a level only a minority of people can reach, yet the mc has such a difficult time against a student to the point of nearly draining all his energy. After being portrayed as a strong magician you’d expect him to do better.

  5. This was the first novel of this author right!? So this explain a lot…
    Making a magister, there are only 10 in the whole kingdom, almost lose to a nobody isnt smart… He is in the same level as his teacher and yet he almost losed.

  6. He fought with dark elves, bandits, expert knights, ancient golems and whatever crap came his way. All that experience so far, yet he can barely beat a spoiled rich kid?
    This “duel” was so disappointing, it just makes me sad.

  7. Thank you for the chapter! On another note, most disappointing chapter ever. The MC is supposed to be comparable to the principal of the academy in terms of raw power, even if his level of understanding is less. Don’t even mention students, he should be able to wipe the floor with teachers. Not to mention even after these couple years of experience his usage of magic is childlike. He barely won against a student that isn’t even in the top 3. It makes absolutely no sense.

  8. Well, hopefully there is some sort of hidden reason why he nearly lost to that student while he is one of the few magisters.

    Also i get the feeling the plain chick is possibly one of the magic race in disguise.

  9. Well I think this pretty much confirms my suspicion that Mu Zi is the magic race girl from earlier in the story.Just the fact the author went out of his way to mention her being interested in that dark magic along with her overreaction to light magic earlier.

    1. I thought it was pretty obvious since they met. I mean she had the magic race special eyes and seemed surprised to see him.

  10. WTF, he nearly lost!. This is fkn embarrassing. He’s a Magister who even got an upgrade from the god king. Not to mention he has access to dragon magic. And he nearly lost to some little magic scholar? And the guy’s only #4, is he gonna lose to #1? That would be reealy shitty

  11. This Ri guy said he newly acquired this freaking magic and also said the first time he used it. I imagined if he fought the the number 1 guy with that magic he would have been rank 1st right? Also mc lacks experience, its the first time he encounter this magic. It absorbs all elemental magic right so what magic can he use to defeat him? Unless he used a physical sword, not magic sword, but its a magic duel so not possible.

  12. Oi it’s bloodline magic it’s supposed to be stupidly op it makes sense he’d have a hard time, besides versus the very suspicious bloodline magic that’s probably actually going to be a spell given by the demon king he didn’t have a hard time at all. He was going easy and basically gave the other guy a free hit by letting him use nine wind spells

  13. By the way the one other bloodline magic we’ve seen was only able to be used by one person and was capable of defeating his magister teacher if he was hit by it according to his teachers own words, when it was cast by someone who I don’t think was even a grand Mage at the time? Or was only a grand Mage definitely below magic scholar.
