Book 12, The Descent of the Gods – Chapter 21, Soulsilk

“Boss Yale, you…?”

Yale’s face was calm, and his cold gaze stabbed at Linley’s heart like daggers. It had been so many years. The four bros of dormitory 1987 had all been on exceedingly close terms with each other. Although they had some squabbles when they were young, there had been none that harmed their friendship.

Linley had never imagined that Yale would look at him in such a way.

It was as though he were looking at a stranger. As though he were looking at…a dead person!

“Huh?” Linley’s face suddenly changed dramatically.

He finally discovered the changes that were going on inside his body. After that cup of wine had entered his stomach, he suddenly realized that the cup of wine actually contained strange, faint gray strands of thin threads. The many silken threads quickly rushed towards Linley’s brain, and they soon entered his consciousness.

The many faint gray threads surrounded his entire sea of consciousness, and then…began to seep through!

“Uhhhh….”

Linley felt his head grow dizzy. He couldn’t help but sway, falling backwards over the seat behind him. After striking the chair, he collapsed to the floor, but right now, he didn’t notice it at all. His concentration was completely focused on his sea of consciousness.

“Lord Linley.” A nearby serving woman immediately cried out in alarm.

Linley, to the serving women and guards of Dragonblood Castle, was a godlike presence. This serving woman had never imagined that the invincible Linley would suddenly faint, as though he were an ordinary person. But the panicked cry of the serving woman quickly drew the attention of the people outside.

The first person whose attention was drawn was Zassler.

Zassler charged into the rear flower garden. Seeing the scene in front of him, his face changed dramatically. “Lord Linley.” Zassler immediately rushed towards Linley, but right now, no one at all could help Linley. Zassler immediately turned his head to stare at Yale.

“It was you!” Zassler’s eyes radiated a freezing light.

Yale maintained his silence, not saying a word.

“Big bro, big bro.” Wharton and a group of others ran over as well. Seeing Linley lying there collapsed on the floor, they were all terrified.

They wouldn’t even be afraid if Linley had been stabbed or slashed, but for Linley to collapse to the ground for no reason at all…how could they not be afraid and worried?

Within Linley’s consciousness.

The many faint gray strings had, in the end, penetrated straight through that faint azure layer of light surrounding his consciousness. The many faint gray strings pierced into the sea of consciousness, and instantly began to constrict around that sword-shaped soul of Linley’s.

The sword-shaped soul was currently hovering in the deepest parts of his sea of consciousness.

“Not good.” Linley definitely wouldn’t permit those strange threads to attack his soul. He immediately tried to control his spiritual energy to block it.

The sea of consciousness in his brain instantly began to roil, and large amounts of spiritual energy began to whittle away at those dim gray threads. After having become a Grand Magus Saint, Linley’s spiritual energy had been further refined and become easier to control. Those faint gray threads, however, forcefully pushed through his condensed spiritual energy, drawing closer to his sword-shaped soul at high speed.

But in the process of doing so, the threads had also been reduced in power.

Having lost a third of their power, the remaining faint gray threads still wrapped around Linley’s soul. With those many gray threads wrapped around his sword-shaped soul, Linley’s soul was like a turtle trapped in a jar. Those gray threads tried to penetrate even deeper.

The soul was extremely important. Once it was pierced through, one would most likely die. Linley understood this very well.

“Rumble…” The sword-shaped soul suddenly flashed with blue light, suddenly gleaming as brightly as the sun. Those faint gray threads dissolved in an instant, like flecks of snow. Within his sea of consciousness, not a single faint gray thread was remaining.

Only now did Linley secretly let out a sigh of relief.

He opened his eyes.

“What are you doing?!” As soon as Linley opened his eyes, he couldn’t help but roar in fury.

Yale was curled up to one side. Yale’s body was covered with blood, but Yale was still moving. He hadn’t died yet. Wharton, Gates, and the others, especially his son Taylor, were currently kicking Yale.

“Bam.” Yale suddenly vomited out yet another mouthful of blood.

“Big bro (Lord Linley)!” Wharton, Zassler, and the others, upon hearing Linley’s furious roar, turned to look with surprised delight.

“Father!” Taylor turned as well. His tear-covered face was now filled with shock and joy.

Everyone from Housekeeper Hiri to Taylor’s children were all present. Dozens of people from Dragonblood Castle were clustered here. All of them stared at Yale with eyes filled with hatred. Now that Linley had woken up, however, they all grew joyful and calmed down.

“Father, are you alright?” Taylor instantly rushed over to Linley.

“Everyone, take a step aside for now.” Linley was staring at Yale.

Linley was certain…that just then, he had suffered an extremely powerful, insidious attack. If it hadn’t been that the protective Dragonblood Warrior energy surrounding his soul had suddenly increased dramatically, it would be hard to say if he would’ve been able to make it past that dangerous moment.

All of this had been caused by that so-called flask of ‘fine wine’ of Yale’s.

“Cough, cough!” Yale covered his mouth, but fresh blood still continued to dribble out past his fingers. Clearly, just then, Taylor and the others had been absolutely furious. After all, Linley was family. Taylor, Wharton, and the others had been so angry that they had physically assaulted Yale.

If it hadn’t been for Yale’s special relationship with Linley, he would have been beaten to death long ago.

Linley looked at Yale and his current appearance. He stretched his hand out, resting it against Yale’s shoulders. He controlled the ‘Pearl of Life’ in his body, and as he did, a special energy filled with life force streamed out from the Pearl of Life, passing through his right hand into Yale’s body.

Yale’s wounds visibly healed in front of them.

“Boss Yale, tell me. Why.” Linley stared at Yale. His voice was very low.

Yale’s body was fine now, and he no longer coughed. He glanced calmly at Linley. “No reason.” After saying these words, Yale no longer spoke.

Linley’s heart was as cold as ice.

This was his lifelong friend!

When he had broken up with Alice and had spent eleven days and eleven nights outside in the cold, Yale, George, and Reynolds had accompanied him the entire time, because they were worried about him, their friend. When he had gone to get revenge on the King of Fenlai, Yale, after having learned about the matter, had done his utmost to assist him.

Yale hadn’t cared at all that these actions would perhaps cause offense to the Radiant Church.

Once, Linley had believed that the brotherly love between the four of them would never change.

But seeing the cold look currently on Yale’s face, Linley’s heart felt such pain.

“Boss Yale. I’ll call you Boss Yale one more time. Tell me, why did you do this!” Linley suppressed the pain in his heart as he stared at Yale. Was this still the same Boss Yale who had always been so full of laughter, the man who would be willing to throwing himself in any danger for the sake of his friends?

Yale glanced at Linley. “Why so many questions? It was to kill you.” Yale’s words were very calm, as though what he said was very reasonable.”

Linley’s heart clenched, as though it had just been struck. A terrible pain slowly began to spread out from his heart, so great that Linley began to shudder slightly. Linley had always been a man who deeply valued love, be it towards his wife, his children, or his friends.

Linley had always believed that the relationship he had were his most priceless assets.

He also believed that his brothers would never abandon him, and that their love was firm and unshakable.

“How…how could this have happened?” Linley’s body was shaking slightly. His eyes were filled with incomprehension and pain!

Why had his dear friend betrayed him?

But as he stared at that cold, calm look in Yale’s eyes, Linley truly didn’t know what he should say.

“Big bro, this Yale wanted to kill you. Why are you hesitating? This sort of person deserves to just be killed!” Wharton was currently still filled with fury, especially after having heard Yale calmly say the words, ‘it was to kill you’. On behalf of his big brother, he felt wronged!

Linley took a deep breath, letting his heart calm down slightly.

“Boss Yale. This will be the last time I call you Boss Yale.” Linley looked at Yale, his heart filled with stabbing pains. In his mind, he couldn’t help but see one scene after another of how the four bros had laughed happily together.

“You can go.” Linley turned around, no longer looking at Yale.

Yale glanced at Linley, then turned and left without a word.

“Big bro.”

“Father.”

“Lord Linley!”

Wharton, Taylor, Gates, Boone, and the others were frantic. Yale had wanted to kill Linley, but Linley was going to release him without punishing him at all?

“Remember. Do not make trouble for Yale. After all…he, he was once my brother.” Linley, when saying the word ‘once’, felt the pain in his heart increase. “Enough. You can all leave. I want to be alone for a while.”

All of them looked at each other, then looked at Linley’s back, which was turned towards them. And then, they all left, one after the other.

In the entire rear flower garden, aside from Linley, only one person was left – Zassler.

“Zassler.” Linley didn’t turn around. “You can leave as well.”

“Lord Linley, I wonder if you would be willing to tell me what happened to your body just now. Perhaps…I can understand a few things.” Zassler stared straight at Linley, his gaze firm.

“No need.” Linley said calmly. “I don’t wish to discuss this matter further.”

Linley was currently in a terrible mood.

“Lord Linley, if you tell me what happened to you within your body, perhaps…I will be able to tell you why Yale did this. There is a possibility that Yale is not to blame for his actions.” Zassler paused for a moment, then spoke.

Linley suddenly turned around, staring at Zassler. “What did you say?”

“I said, perhaps Yale is not to blame for his actions. There might be other reasons.” Zassler said.

When Linley heard these words, his heart instantly became filled with hope. He truly hoped that Yale had his own difficulties, which is why he had asked Yale earlier why he had done this. But from Yale’s eyes, he had seen no pain or embarrassment, only cold indifference.

This caused Linley’s heart to turn so cold.

“Alright. I’ll tell you.” Linley immediately began to describe in detail what had happened in his body to Zassler. Of course, Linley didn’t explain too much about how that special protective azure light unique Dragonblood Warriors possessed had increased dramatically. After all, to Zassler, what really mattered was what had been used to attack Linley.

“Soulsilk?” Zassler’s eyes instantly lit up as he heard this. “So my suspicions were correct.”

“What is ‘Soulsilk’?” Linley looked at Zassler.

Zassler explained in detail, “Lord Linley, I’ve had many suspicions this entire time, but now, I’m absolutely certain. I’ll tell you right now that this ‘Soulsilk’ is based off of Necromantic Magic. It is a type of poison that is specially meant to attack the souls of others. Only, the process of refining it is extremely difficult, and the requirements are very high. Even I have never refined this poison.”

“Are you saying that this wine had Soulsilk inside it?” Linley asked.

Zassler nodded. “Right. After Soulsilk has been refined, it needs to be stored in a special type of liquid. That way, the Soulsilk will be able to last for a long period of time.”

“So the culprit behind Yale is someone who trains in Necromancy?” Linley’s eyes lit up.

Zassler nodded. “Lord Linley, actually…when you informed us that yesterday that after killing those two silver-robed men, that Violet-Gold Rat King, Harry, told you that the Deity behind those two knew that it was the two of you who had killed the two silver-robed men…I began to grow suspicious.”

“Because even Deities can’t always be casting their Deific presence everywhere at all times. You suddenly killed those two silver-robed men. How could the Deity behind them possibly know? But Harry was so certain that the Deity knew. Thus…in my mind, there’s only one possibility!”

“That was a Soulseed!”

Zassler said seriously, “Necromancers can use their own soul energy to condense into a Soulseed, and then place that Soulseed into someone else’s soul. That person will then be under the complete control of the Soulseed’s creator. At the same time, between servant and master, there will be a spiritual link and ability to communicate. Thus, before dying, those two silver-robed men were been able to inform the appearances of you and Fain to that Deity.”

Linley felt utterly shocked.

“Lord Linley, you said that there are nine silver-robed men, and that most likely every single one of them is at Prime Saint levels of power. I imagine…the only type of person capable of controlling nine Prime Saints would be an expert practitioner of Necromancy who has reached the Deity-level.” Zassler said with certainty. “This is because Grand Magus Necromancers definitely don’t have the ability to control so many Prime Saints. After all, the more powerful the person being controlled, the higher the requirements the Soulseed will have.”

“In addition, Lord, you and Yale have an extremely deep relationship with each other, but when he tried to kill you, he was so remorseless and uncaring. He was even able to bring out a poison such as Soulsilk…there’s only one explanation. He, too, has been controlled by a Soulseed from that Deity.”

Zassler looked at Linley. “Lord Linley, you should forgive Yale. Once a person is controlled by a Soulseed, deep in their mind, they will come to treat the wishes of their master as paramount. Even if one was ordered to commit suicide or commit patricide or matricide, it would be done without hesitation. He’s nothing more than a dominated puppet right now.”

Linley felt both joy and fear in his heart.

Fear for Yale!

“Yale’s been controlled…then…is there any method to allow him to return him to normal?” Linley was filled with worry for Yale.

“There is.” Zassler nodded. “The method is…kill the Deity. At that time, the Soulseed will naturally dissipate.”

    2. a million thanks, yuzu-sama. ‘ve been on travel for last few days and maybe for few days more, and the reading list has been piling up.

      btw, i read your mini-spoiler, and glad that the the ship thought to be sinking actually can transform into nuclear submarine. to commemorate that i’m suggesting the vol.5 cover be made into your site’s banner or bg 😀

      // mayumi x tatsuya ftw //

      1. nah it’s just a temporarily kinda site! I won’t care much after posting all vols, maybe it’ll be deleted afterwards… *evil grin* well as long as I got my revenge I don’t really care! he he

  1. Thanks ren… there I was about to get first then I keep getting the posting too fast script…I was going to put the lyrics to the milkshake song up there but nooo the universe is cruel

    1. Eh What The ring?
      I thought he survived cause of his dragon warrior soul?

      And ren thnks for the chapter.
      My addictions gotten so bad i cant sleep without a daily dose of two
      chapters.

      1. Read between the lines and remember previous ‘saves’… Azure energy protecting his soul increased in strenght all of a sudden, just like at the time when Heidens attacked Linley’s soul. Again ring helped him, sigh.

        1. Or his soul might have gotten stronger from the last time the Coiling Dragon Ring saved him. That kinda thing happens a lot in this author’s novels. At least, every other time the Coiling Dragon Ring saved him, the ring was explicitly mentioned.

          1. Protective energy would not increase all of a sudden out of blue. It would be strong to begin with. Also Linley would have no reason to hide part about it INCREASING from Zassler. Sigh. If you need to have everything mentioned to know it was X or Y, then don’t argue with me. Thanks! Sigh.

          2. The azure shield didnt really do anything here.
            it passed straight through.
            and as for it getting stronger its because linley became aware of his soul being attacked and took measures to protect it.
            like how the spiritual attacks of the 3 ni lions worked on the ice giant as he had his guard down and wasnt really expecting it but he broke free when he strted fighting back.
            moreover no mention of ring here IET wouldnt just leave it out if it hd a part to play.
            And linleys souls did get stronger after reaching grandmagus and his soul turned into a sword

          3. It might have been left out with a purpose in mind. What if, with linley on the verge of getting an even greater ego, he unconsciously started to use CD. Therefore it didn’t need to act on its own so wasn’t mentioned. Linley can later realize that it was the ring helping him in this moment.

          4. ” “Rumble…” The sword-shaped soul suddenly flashed with blue light, suddenly gleaming as brightly as the sun. Those faint gray threads dissolved in an instant, like flecks of snow. Within his sea of consciousness, not a single faint gray thread was remaining. ”

            See word ‘suddenly’? All of that implies that it was out of Linley’s control. Also it’s exactly same as previous ‘saves’ by CD ring.

            Also your mentioning ‘spiritual attack’ of ‘Ni-Lions’ proves how you don’t even remember few chapters ago… Ni Lions don’t have spiritual attack. Spiritual attack was by Scorpion King…

            PS: Stop reading chapters so fast because you are missing a lot of important things… Be it from this chapter, or from previous ones…

          5. That might be it .
            He is on the verge of becoming a deity so he might be able to draw more out of the ring .
            But i still dont think IET would just let it go without a single mention though.
            even if the ring wasnt mentioned maybe something along the lines of might have been mentioned
            ” a strange force surged forth and fought the soulsilk ”
            but this writing gives off the feeling that he did it by his own abilities.
            Well well never know for sure until we know.

        2. This wasn’t the azure light, so either IET has changed what kind of light the ring gives of, ren changed the translation slightly, Or linleys soul which has been tiptoeing on the deity level used some of that energy to make a smaller breakthrough and defend itself, like all the other breakthroughs he makes when he is in peril.

          Soulsilk would probably only be a sure kill against saints, and if his soul used divine energies to defend i should ave him (yes, i know he isn’t supposed to technically be able to use that energy before he has a fully broken trough, but it wouldn’t be the first time a MC used broke trough for a fraction of a second and used the next levels power to save his life)

          1. Maybe IET was tired of word ‘azure’ and used ‘blue’ instead -.- Linley is not Diety yet, he can’t use divine power without Divine Spark. It’s not the same as gaining insights into new laws that can happen mid-fight…

          2. It’s obviously the Coiling Dragon ring which helped him the EXACT same thing happened when Heiden attacked Linley’s soul with the (life ripper) attack….plus you forget the guy who made the SoulSilk is a DEITY level necromancer and he was sure that Linley couldn’t possibly survive so the only conclusion is that something irregular happened that he couldn’t foresee i.e. the RING

  2. Thanks for the new chapter RWX!

    One thing I would like to mention: I’m getting a lot of video ads on your site now and not only does this immensely lengthen the time it takes to load your site, also your side becomes extremely laggy to me. Luckily they don’t have sound, it’s extremely inconvenient nonetheless.

    1. @Leehar I could also just use adblock, the problem is the loss of ad revenue for Ren… I mean sure he makes thousands through the donations, but it still doesn’t feel right to just leech here. The alternative I’m striving for would be Ren changing the ads if possible or feasible.

      1. Yeah but think of it as a miniature ad block? Just avoid the irritating video ones, since I have read before that ren can’t control what appears on the ads beyond ethernet they are offensive or not.

      2. It’s best to disable ad block on the site and then add the site to the list flash has to block. Ads but no video-ads.
        And it’s not because ren doesn’t deserve the revenue of the videos, he does, it’s just that the site is extremely laggy, and eats up bandwidth with those videos playing and there are often 3 of them at the same time.

          1. Haeru should have found a spark and fused with it behind Linleys back, just like in the 1 of april joke, but remained loyal ^^

          2. this… is my godrealm.
            Nah, even if he had it wouldn’t impact the story…I mean it’s not like barker and delia have done anything significant (except the church barrier which I think they’d have managed with even without) and fusing with the spark takes 16 years or so since delia said she was halfway when she was fusing with it for 8 years.

  3. ugh this chapter was very annoying. Linley being an absolute idiot in thinking yale actually betrayed him. Linley’s family beating yale up without any thought. Zassler pausing and taking his sweet ass time to tell linley how yale was mind controlled, and only waited till after linley was poisoned, and yale left to tell him. -.- Aren’t there any concepts of prisons to hold people captive? -.-

      1. Linley didn’t really know that when he left him go though.
        It makes complete sense to at least hold the guy who tried to kill you in order to investigate the matter, especially if they were close.

      2. there are ways of making this not happening, although some of them are tortuous.

        Like cutting out the tongue to stop him from chanting (can be healed by anyone of their high level light magus friends), having a healer nearby to stop him from killing himself with instacast spells (doubt he can cast to powerful chant less magic to die instantly, his body is to tough, especially if there are 2-3 healers around 24/7, tying him up to stop him from physically harming himself, and placing him deep into an underground prison where he can’t hear anything of importance, or see anything of importance. tie a blindfold so he has trouble aiming, and he is in a tortured state where he can not be held hostage against linley, or be used to bolster the power of the Warlock….Or, you can do whatever it was the radiant church did to linley back in the days o keep him imprisoned, don’t remember the specifics…

        Pretty dark, but when your best friend are brainwashed to destroy you, protective custody is in order, and his friends mage powers unfortunately warrant the treatment…

        1. And you are sure that this Diety can’t just directly shatter Yale’s soul when he is the one controlling it? Physical means won’t help at all. Also it would be like yelling “my friends and family are so important to me that if you want to fight me, start from killing / capturing them and i won’t be able to do ****” 😛

    1. Well, since they just tend to kill everyone however they please whenever they please it wouldn’t be so surprising not to have many prisons. We know the late radiant church had one for saints, and there are probably some for low level warriors but for stronger ones? There was the one on the slave trading ship. But heck, think about it, the material alone needs to incredibly strong.

        1. You understand me wrongly. I meant that they didn’t have the concept of putting people in yale(wut? I meant jail). They just kill them. So I don’t know if they would think of holding yale, it’d be killing or releasing. And the reactions themselves they had were an excellent example of that.

      1. Well all everyone does is train their bodies/abilities, so it’s no surprise if everyone’s brain rotted.. Linley reads a book like once every 40 years. Last one he read before beirut visited was in ernest institute.

      1. No need to act holier than thou.
        You are probably right that the boost to his spiritual power came from the ring, but since it wasn’t explicitly stated, youngdrgn is still entitled to his views.

          1. It’s okay… you wanted a new mc too 😛 😛

            Once again bebe reign as the MC failed to start…sighs

  4. “Yale’s words were very calm, as though what he said was very reasonable.”” should remove last quotation marks.
    “when you informed us that yesterday that after killing” should remove “that”.

    Linster’s entourage is scary. You will get kicked half to death with fresh blood flowing freely for even being a suspect. Actually, everyone loves and owes Linley too much and can’t help but settle things through violence first.

  5. Of course, Linley didn’t explain too much about how that special protective azure light unique Dragonblood Warriors possessed had increased dramatically.

    Do you mean the following:
    “unique to Dragonblood Warriors”

  6. My heart cry a little when linley fell. I know Plot protection, but linley seems to be so unlucky in life…sighs my heart need to recover with munchies. Peace out everyone!

    1. How on earth is he unlucky? With the exception of his parents dying and his love leaving him, which, mind you, are all normal occurrences in every person life (and yet he completely overreacts), what other sorrowful things did he encounter? Sure, his home country and village got destroyed but it is not like he cared for those. He himself isn’t maimed or anything. He has a beautiful wife, kids, same for his brother, friends, power, money, status, etc. In what on earth is he unlucky?

      And that he gets to survive ordeal after ordeal…meh it’s like you would suddenly as normal person stage a coup in russia or something and you succeed…and then do that in every other EU country…

      1. Don’t forget being one of greatest geniuses in this plane, having Godeater rat as magical beast companion, having Bloodviolet implied to be incridibly rare and powerful divine artefact, and even CD ring which can be of even greater value than Bloodviolet… Sooo unlucky, wow.

  7. Thanks Ren and EODBull 🙂
    So it was not Dark Magic but Necromantic Magic after all…

    If Linley manage to kill that warlock and give the spark to Zassler that would be swell XD

    1. ” I’ll tell you right now that this ‘Soulsilk’ is based off of Necromantic Magic.”

      Potion is based off that. Warlock’s magic and Necromancer’s magic are probably really similar, but still not exactly same.

      1. One thing for sure, that warlock was dabbling in Necromantic Magic. its possible that he had affinity for another magic like Linley and Dixie

        **comment for next chapter preview**
        I wonder if the soulseed is hiding inside the interspatial ring. Then the warlock controlled wharton. The title hidden not because Linley become a deity but its about “Killing a brother” XD

    2. He, that would be nice, and Zassler would be forever loyal to Linley. He might already be, out if anyone of his friends would betray Linley out of their own free will, it would be the slyest of them all, Zassler. the brothers might be able to plan a decent military campaign, but the only one that has an actual devius bone in his body is the big Z, and he has about 206 of them

      1. Well, not really, he just happens to have something like a brain in his head. It isn’t very big, about the size of a potato, but at least he has one. And that’s more than what can be said about the others.

  8. gah, i want to discuss the next chapters spoiler, but it’s bad manners…. aw well, will have to wait for a few hours, but my guess is that Zassler is the one to gain the most from the fight between Linley and the Silver (surfer) Saints, and leave it at that…

    1. Never, ever, mention that monstrosity. We’ve all seen it (at least the first page or so) and we’ve all been traumatized and people still come with the “have you seen the manga”… I’ll quote ren here and say “BAH!!!!”

  9. I’m guessing that the author put this character (Grand Necromancer) so that when Linley kills him or whoever does, Linley can give his divine spark to Zassler……atleast i hope that’s what will happen it will be awesome to have a grand necromancer deity working for Linley…XD

      1. Let be honest, when Ren hides a title, isn’t it obvious what is going to happen in that chapter:
        Example in point: Grand Magus Title.
        It becomes a bit predictable. Though, if he start hiding random chapter (such as as last), then it is not.

  10. Thank you so much!
    yes, this is really good!Zassler, i’m so glad you’re here! So glad that this arc about Yale ‘betraying’ Linley wasn’t dragged out.if it was, i’d probably be really irritated.

  11. I foresee a vengeful Linley killing the necromancer god, taking his divine spark, and giving it to Zassler. More deities for Team Protagonist 😉
