第29章 你就是我的信仰

Chapter 29: You Are My Faith (X)


Shang Ke did not intend to play the harp, but he saw from the corner of his eye Youri fidgeting with his harp and went over to take a look. He had chosen the musical instrument skill from the System, so every time he would be able to choose a different instrument and learn. There were all kinds of instruments in the System, so many that he wouldn’t be able to count it all. In theory, as long as he had enough energy for it, he could learn pretty much all the instruments.


At the present time, he had chose the piano, flute and violin (chosen after the second world), he still had not had contact with instruments from other worlds. The harp of this world was a bit different from the one in his memory, it was like a bent silver moon, inlaid was three elaborate magic crystals that were bright like stars and seven golden strings.


To inlay precious magic crystals in an instrument, probably only those born in nobility like Youri could obtain it.


Shang Ke tried playing a couple tones, the magic crystals formed a boundary and immediately fluctuated, it seem to give the music an amplifying effect, passing on the sound farther.


He was a bit interested now, strands of music started to assemble in his mind. His fingers moved and started to make an improvisation play.


A melodious and sweet music poured out like running water and gradually turned into the Milky Way, slowly flowing in the night sky.


Shang Ke did not notice that with his playing, the devil qi that polluted everyone’s body all started to be pulled into his body bit by bit. This was also the reason why everyone suddenly felt relaxed.


They walked out one by one from the tents, quietly staring at the man that was concentrated on playing. They carefully listened with all of their attention as their jittery mood gradually eased and what was left behind was only peace.


Shang Ke’s surrounding assembled a large amount of devil qi and converged into a great whirlpool under the sky. The music also contained a large amount of faith and tangled with the devil qi. Shang Ke’s place turned into the darkest yet brightest place.


Only with light, can darkness condense.


Only with darkness, can light shine.


“Shang Ke!” Tylor was the first one to notice the abnormality.


He could only see Shang Ke’s eyes were half closed and his face completely white. His lips were a captivating red like blood as strands of devil qi slowly twine around his fingertips like ribbons. The music condensed by the power of faith once again shone like stars in the darkness.


The devil qi gradually spread to Shang Ke’s eyes, like group of dark flames, it churned. A drop of black tear slide from the corner of his eye, leaving trails of tears on his jade-white face and immediately turned into a strand of black fod and vanished into the sky.


He drew the darkness into his own body while he left the light for others.


“Shang Ke, stop!” Kaiser also shouted.


Shang Ke’s body was almost completely covered by the devil qi.


Only now did everyone notice the abnormality, they saw the devil qi around Shang Ke starting to bubble and all subconsciously took a step back.


“Devil qi invasion!” Someone said softly, disgust and fear in his eyes.


“Catch him and see if he can still be saved!” Someone else shouted.


A few quickly went for Shang Ke, but Tylor and Kaiser both stood in front of Shang Ke.


“No one can touch him!” Tylor coldly said.


“Your Highness Tylor, he’s already invaded by the devil qi, if we don’t treat him, then he would turn into a devil apostle!”


Kaiser raged, “Even if you all turn into devil apostles, he would not!”


This group of bastard, they don’t even know they were the ones being invaded by the devil qi and now wanted to harm the one that saved them.


“Kaiser, we know he is your friend, but since he has been invaded by the devil qi, we can’t just ignore it.” Someone else said, “Can you guys please move aside, perhaps he can still be saved.”


“That’s right, you can’t neglect other people’s safety for your friend.” Many people agreed echoed that.


“Neglect other people’s safety? Did you guys not notice that you guys were being invaded by the devil qi?” Kaiser couldn’t restrain his towering rage, “If it wasn’t for Shang Ke, the ones that needs treatment would be you guys!”


“What do you mean?” Everyone’s face was doubtful.


“Shang Ke used the music to draw the devil qi out from your body into his own body.”


“Ha, are you making a joke?” Most of the people showed they did not believe it, “Who would help others absorb devil qi? Isn’t that just courting death?”


“Kaiser, do you have to make such an absurd lie to help your friend? Look at the concentration of devil qi on his body, it’s clearly because his willpower is too weak or his faith isn’t firm for him to end up like this.”


“Willpower too weak? His faith not firm?” Kaiser laughed from anger, “Do you think someone who has a weak willpower and faith would be able to play such a music filled with the power of faith?”


Everyone paused, the harps music was still playing into their ears, melodious and pure, it was like Kaiser said, it contained a huge amount of faith.


What… is going on here?


Tylor did not pay attention to everyone else and crouched by Shang Ke’s side, quietly saying, “Shang Ke, it’s enough. Stop.”


He placed his hand on Shang Ke’s back and immediately felt a bone chilling coldness intruding into his body from his fingertips, causing almost his entire arm to go numb.


Only now did Tylor know just how much devil qi Shang Ke absorbed. He had just barely touched him and it turned into an essence that attacked him.


He was simply unable to imagine just how was Shang Ke able to bear such dense devil qi. Just what was the origin of his faith?


“Daddy.” Just at this moment, a young and tender voice interrupted Tylor’s thoughts.


Tylor raised his head and saw Pupu reach out to grab Shang Ke.


“Wait.” Tylor didn’t even finish speaking when Pupu already grabbed Shang Ke’s sleeve. Soon after, he saw the devil qi in the area she touched sudden dissipate and quickly retreated out. In a short while, the devil qi on Shang Ke’s body disappeared without a trace and the harp’s sound stopped.


Tylor looked at Pupu, flabbergasted.. He knew that this little girl had a very pure power of faith, but he didn’t expect this power to be able to fight against the devil qi on Shang Ke’s body. He once again looked back at him, this pair of father and son really are… unbelievable.


With the sound stopping, the light from the power of faith gradually vanished and the devil qi began to disperse. The people who were endlessly arguing suddenly felt their body go cold, traces of devil qi started to invade their body. In a moment, it felt as if everyone fell from a place full of sunshine into a cold glacier.


Such a huge difference almost made every spout blood.


This time when they looked at Shang Ke, they no longer held any disgust and was filled with shock and disbelief.


This person really was helping them absorb devil qi just now?


“Shang Ke, how are you?” Tylor supported Shang Ke, his eyes concentrated on him.


“I’m fine.” Shang Ke gave Tylor a rather tired smile and then looked at Pupu and rubbed her head, gently saying, “Thank you Pupu.”


Pupu completely did not know what he was thanking her for, but being praised she was very happy. She threw herself into his arms and held him tightly.


In fact, Shang Ke did not plan to help everyone absorb the devil qi. But when the music started, he could feel large amounts of devil qi move toward him and blending into his body. The only thing that could ease the devil qi invasion was the harp’s sound. So he could only continue to play, if he stopped, he might be thoroughly swallowed by the devil qi.


Fortunately Pupu helped sever the devil qi from him in time, giving him a breather to escape.


So his devil absorbing constitution could draw support from another object and become an area skill! He has to say, this pitfall world has danger everywhere. He just wanted to play some music and almost played himself to death. He had enough!


Shang Ke looked at the harp in his hand and decided that he would not touch another instrument before he left this world.


He returned the harp back to Youri, who was using an amazed and worshipping gaze to stare at him, “Shang Ke, no, Senior Osari, you must accept my knee (kneel).”


Shang Ke: “……”


Shang Ke took a look around him and discovered that everyone’s gazes were pretty much the same as Youri’s.


Just as everyone was about to come over to ask, he turned to Tylor and said, “Tylor, lend me your shoulder for a moment.”


The moment he said that, he fainted into Tylor’s embrace.


Tylor gently held the weak Shang Ke, his gaze gentle but also pained.


“How is he?” Kaiser quickly moved closer and asked in concern.


“He’s likely going to be weak again for a long time.” Tylor’s expression dimmed.


Kaiser’s nose felt soured and scolded in a soft voice, “Idiot!”


“I will take him back to rest and leave the rest to you.” Tylor carried Shang Ke and Pupu together and headed for their tent.


Kaiser watched his leaving figure, his eyes complicated.


Through Shang Ke’s music baptism, although everyone still felt a bit unwell, it was not the stifling feeling from before that could choke people.


And they gradually become aware just what kind of burden Shang Ke had with absorbing the devil qi. The average person would feel incomparably unwell with just a bit of devil qi invading their body, but he alone bore with several people’s devil qi. This kind of perseverance and courage really made people admire him.


And they were criticizing him before for having weak willpower and faith. But now that they thought about it, the ones that were truly weak were them. They fear the devil qi and did everything in their abilities to hide their weak point. Meanwhile, Shang Ke let them see a whole new way to fight—using their own body as a battlefield and use their own willpower as a weapon to courageously advance and right the devil qi.


They only knew how to strict protect their heart, they never thought about fighting head on before.


However, just how many people in this world can just rely on their willpower and win against the demons in their heart? Perhaps only those with a generous heart and firm faith can accomplish this.


Everyone looked toward the tent Shang Ke was resting in, they were overwhelmed by emotions for a moment, and could hardly hold themselves together.


After experiencing this event, Shang Ke pretty much became the most important one to protect. Because of him, the journey into the abyss of the marsh became much more relaxed, at least no one needed to worry about being invaded by the devil qi and going crazy.


But as they got closer and closer to the interior, the devil qi also became stronger. Everyone saw large amounts of dead bodies, not long after, they had also met the misfortune of getting lost.


After they wandered around in the depths for four to five days, they finally met another group.


But the situation of this group was not very good. They had around thirty and their expressions were all dispirited. They were also all injured. When they saw Shang Ke’s group, they almost directly went for the kill.


Compared to this group, Tylor’s group of people were completely different in their mental state. Although they were also a bit tired, they were not in much dread or nervous.


Shang Ke looked at them one by one, most of the people in this group were already invaded by the devil qi. There a couple among them that have already turned into low level apostles.


Just while he was observing this group of people, he suddenly heard someone shout in alarm, “It’s a King level apostle! There’s a King level apostle in their group!”


Shang Ke followed the voice and noticed the finger was pointing at him.


Uh, he’s been found out?

  1. I can’t believe it!! when i refreshed the page i stared blankly for a minute my mind did receive the information being sent to it!! but right now i’m full of happiness!! Thank you snowyy!! And can i reserve a room in the moving castle please??


  2. I think the most tragic character isn’t the protagonist but the male lead. Leaving is easier than being left when you’re in love. 🙁 You have to deal with the pain and sorrow of your beloved while also losing the source of love. And every lifetime, he loses his lover… Poor boy. I hope it doesn’t affect him too badly in the long run.


    • True. Being left behind leaves a deep impression on one psych… Poor ML keeps going through the death of his beloved and MC leaves in such tragic ways too.. 😢 this is like “that” particular FoD arc being repeated over and over again T_T


      • “That” arc in FOD destroyed the readers leaving a hollow shell behind…


        Poor Protagnist! He will never have his love returned and this is the first time I sympathize with a Protagnist.

        Poor ML, he always watches MC die and gets heartache everytime, MC you better fix that!

        Poor MC he’ll never have a good end, well until ML arrives, I hope ML can save you.

        This novel is just cute, funny, and sad in a bundle.


        • Rayakashi says:

          Yeah poor ML. I can see him turning into a yandere with all the times the MC leaves him. Just that first arc alone- Ouch! 😬


  3. Pobre Tylor, já posso prever seu futuro trágico onde seu amante morre como um mártir. * lançando o cubo pra cima, e com um giro uma tenda tecnológica do futuro aparece cheia de empregados com orelhas de gato*. que comece o acampamento, e a agonia de esperar o próximo cap. =D
    E a história do assassino que virou jogador de VR? Tem alguma previsão de capitulo novo?

  6. Guys we should jusy build a castle in this chapter!


    Who wants to join? Camping with tents is so tiring! We have wifi (of course!), food, fluffy blankets (always), and anything else you want to bring?

    We probably have like 3 or 4 castle built in this novel 😂😂😂

    Thank you for the delicious chapter, Snowy-sama! May you continue to have mercy on us! 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️


  7. Rayakashi says:

    Isn’t there no problem with them finding out? MC’s excuse is that he’s been absorbing the devil qi- though the new guys don’t know that so probably a fight is still gonna break out. I wonder if the MC is going to end up meeting some senpai who know the original bodies infamous identity? Wah~ I cant wait to read more!


  8. Rhavaniel says:

    Thank you for the wonderful new chapter Snowy-sama! I was really excited to see the new chapter this morning and I’m really looking forward to the rest of this arc 😉
    Please make sure you still get enough sleep though you seem to work very late…


  9. Blacktiger says:

    In the paragraph starting with “Tylor looked at Pupu, flabbergasted” the part with ‘father and son’ should probably be changed to ‘father and daughter.’ Thank you for the chapter, Snowy!


  10. Ignobilia says:

    Haha, about a fourth of the pleasure is to read the comments!

    So funny, isn’t it one moving castle and not many that are later abandoned?

    I would like it if we have on magic castle that can teleport and we all get our own rooms that we get to keep and can decorate as we want.

    Of course we can’t forget to have a common area with a kitchen filled with junk food and sugary thing to help us get through the wait and the tear jerking chapter. Then we would have a liberal with only bl novels and bl manga and a living room with a big tv where we together can watch bl movies and series. We should also have an alter to the bl God and maybe a bl holiday to celebrate it.
    We can’t forget wifi, hm, have I forgotten something? Do you guys have something to add?

    Thanks for the holly scripture! ♥️🙏


  11. Ignoble is says:

    Oh, yes, bathrooms!

    How could I forget, hm, maybe we also should have a hot spring and traditional Chinese clothing, I have always thought that they both look nicer and most feel better to wear compeard to western clothes like jeans.
    But maybe we should just have pajamas on all the time, kinda like a never ending sleepover!

    Haa, the castle is turning into my happy place, I’m going to go there every time I miss bl and are waiting for chapter!
