Revolution

“The core of the spirit genie!” Longbottom sighed slightly, unhesitatingly releasing a shockwave to destroy the spell formation.

*Tss tss…* Instantly, the spirit genie’s voice faded, and Potti City immediately grew chaotic.

*Rumble!*

As if long since prepared, the opposing dark elves and beast wave unleashed their most ferocious barrage of attacks.

While the Magi were engrossed in battle, the defensive spell formation that had lost its spirit genie sputtered out.

“What are you doing?” Two Magi immediately rushed out.

“Life Absorption!” Longbottom’s expression remained unchanged as he waved his hands. A few green beams flashed on the two, and they began to age visibly. Their life force was rapidly depleting.

“Begin localization!” Longbottom took a glance at Yade, who was still sealed, and produced some materials and began setting something up.

*Rumble!*

Minutes later, with the guidance of a spell formation that glowed purple, eight large spider legs pierced through, tearing the ceiling apart. On top of the giant spider that entered was a completely naked girl.

This girl had a slight smile on her face, her skin pale and ears pointy. She radiated a captivating charm.

“Greetings, matriarch!” Longbottom immediately bowed.

“Well done, Longbottom!” The young girl giggled, causing Longbottom’s heart to leap.

“Though you’ve wasted a portion of a precious Earthen Fetal Membrane, it’s still not a bad result to be able to deal with a clone of your opponent. After all, that person’s a peak rank 2 existence!”

The young girl spoke slowly. Just her voice was enough for his heart to be inflamed with desire.

Rank 2 Magi were powerhouses in their own right. If one was prepared, even the dark elves’ matriarchs would find them difficult to deal with. Additionally, there were bloodline detection spell formations scattered throughout Potti City. Any dark creature that entered would immediately be discovered.

But Longbottom was different! He was a pure human, and what more a Magus. Though he was a wandering Magus, he had some achievements and was well received.

Earthen Fetal Membrane was a top-class treasure of the Dark Elven Empire used to conceal one’s aura.

Only when all sorts of conditions were favorable to him could he make use of the parasitic seed.

This had made Longbottom very proud of himself, but her words had surprised him greatly.

“Clone?”

“Yes! Aren’t you going to come out?” The girl giggled while speaking at the air beside her.

*Xiu Xiu!* Two pure white arrows of light shattered the tendrils, revealing a hazy human figure.

This figure transformed into a long line and shot out, entering another figure that had just appeared.

“This is the real body of Protector Yade!” Longbottom stared at the figure overhead that looked exactly the same as the one before, his fists tightly clenched.

“I didn’t expect Her Majesty, the Empress to come personally !”

Yade, who was floating in mid-air, paid no attention to Longbottom who was on the ground. His eyes were riveted on the young girl before him, gaze tinged with fear.

“Hehe… With your clone heavily injured, how much of your strength can you really use? 70%? Or 80%?”

The girl could not stop laughing, while her back tore open.

……

A monster that was a cross between a human and a spider appeared in the air, and a massive darkness drowned out Protector Yade…

Not far away in the horizon, Magi were stunned to find that, besides the dark elves and the horde of darkness creatures, dwarves and gnomes had joined the battle.

Half a day later, an earth-shattering piece of news spread throughout Twilight Zone.

Potti City had fallen! The Empress of the Dark Elven Empire had personally acted and killed Protector Yade of the northern region!

The dwarven tribes and gnome kingdom had also entered the battle, and the entire northern Twilight region fell into enemy hands, entering a reign of terror.

Still in Potti City.

The master of this region had changed. Squads of elite Underground Winter Spider knights patrolled the streets, and one could occasionally see dwarven warriors and gnome puppeteers passing through.

In the great palace hall at the heart of the city.

The Empress summoned Longbottom in.

“You did very well this time, Longbottom!” The girl spoke from the bottom of her heart. If not for him plotting against their opponent’s clone, she could not have killed him as easily.

“It is my honour to be able to serve the Empress.” Longbottom gazed at the girl’s absolutely beautiful face, seeming enchanted.

“Now, I need you to travel to the central region and drum up hate against Magi.” The girl did not seem disgusted by his gaze, instead of wriggling her body to expose more of her skin to the Magus before her.

“Hate against Magi?” Longbottom could not understand the reasoning behind this.

“Yes. Magi and the nobility all hold large amounts of knowledge and power in their grasp, restricting peasants and regular humans from obtaining them. Animosity, abhorrence, and anguish have been building up through the generations. What we need now is a tipping point, an opportunity for it all to explode into a huge uproar!”

The girl continued quietly, “I need you to go to the central region and cause unrest in the name of a revolution. When the time comes, you can even spread high-grade meditation techniques.”

“…Yes…” Longbottom answered after a pause. He would cause a rebellion at his enemy’s side, and then flank the enemy from both sides.

He knew that under the governance of Magi, commoners had been living miserably. The Magi and nobles enjoyed everything, while the rest had to suffer from day to night. Even then, they might not even get a good meal out of it. Crimes could be pinned on them for offending nobility, or in the worst case scenario, they would be killed without recourse!

It was difficult for commoners to be allowed to grow even if they had the aptitude

Even if they were lucky enough to enter a guild, they would still be discriminated against and even treated as guinea pigs or cannon fodder.

Of course, if one only had resentment and no strength, they would only be mercilessly massacred by Magi. After all, power was still in the hands of Magi.

But it was different now. Magi now were confronting a great enemy, and their mental and physical efforts were mostly spent.

In addition, there were calls for a rebellion.

Sometimes, resounding catchphrase and beautiful promises for the future could attract many hot-blooded teenagers to turn their heads.

If they were given some power, it would be a disaster.

When that happened, there might be internal strife amongst Magi. How many people would die? How much blood would be spilled?

Longbottom knew this very well, but he had no thoughts of opposing this, nor any pity. All he had in him was the thrill of taking revenge.

“Leylin, I’ll make you suffer tens and hundreds of time for what you did to me. I promise!”

Longbottom howled in his heart.

If Leylin was here, he would find that this traitor called Longbottom was the little boy, Longbottom, he had played around with in Potter Town.

“En! Very good. When you’re back, I’ll carry out the bloodline changing ceremony. From then on, you’ll be part of us dark elves, even in blood.”

The girl nodded.

“Many thanks, Empress!” Longbottom touched his head to the ground.

……

“Longbottom?” Hearing the rank 2 female Magus’ words, Leylin suddenly had the urge to cry and laugh as well.

“Though the name might just be a coincidence, I have a feeling that this traitor to our race, Longbottom, is the same person as the one in Potter Town!”

Leylin sighed ruefully. When he had found out that this boy had left to seek better opportunities, he had not taken it seriously. The chances of success were much too low.

Unexpectedly, he had actually succeeded and even become a rank 1 Magus!

Without proper tools, Leylin could not tell a Magus’ aptitude. Hence, he did not know that Longbottom had the talent to become a Magus.

“But this is interesting. Looks like Potter Town is a place where Twilight Zone’s destiny converges.” Leylin touched his chin, deep in thought.

Potter Town had seemed like a regular little common town and had probably already fallen into enemy hands.

However, it was surprising that it had given birth to both Baelin and Longbottom, the two darlings of destiny.

“Baelin and Longbottom are like the two sides of a coin. One day, they will meet again, and that day will be when Twilight Zone’s power of destiny is most concentrated!”

Leylin suddenly had a strange premonition.

“It’s quite interesting being able to shape history…” Strictly speaking, he had personally created this entire situation. It was in Potter Town where everything began. It made him feel like the destiny of Twilight Zone was in his hands.

But this only left Leylin sneering.

“In that case, let me be the one to end this all!”

These thoughts merely flashed in his mind, while the other two rank 2 Magi’s expressions were filled with worry.

“Now that the entire northern region is gone, we have lost a fifth of our power.”

Fendix caressed a ring on his hand that had a ruby the size of a pebble, a dark cloud seemingly hanging over him.

“Not only that. Besides the dark elves and horde of darkness creatures, even the dwarves and gnomes have appeared!”

The female Magus smiled wryly.

Twilight Zone was a small area, and the subterranean world had all sorts of incredible races. The humans and dark elves were the two largest powers, but one could not underestimate the gnomes and dwarves either.

When they joined forces, the humans were definitely in a disadvantageous position.

“This war could result in genocide!” Fendix drew in a deep breath, “We need to get the war council and mobilise everything we have…”

“Before that, we need to first deal with the threats outside.”

A golden ring on Leylin’s finger lit up, and he immediately straightened his back, “The dark elves are on the offensive once again, and it can be confirmed that they have three regiments of elite Underground Winter Spider Knights, backed by three matriarchs.”

“Those wretched pointy-eared bastards…” Fendix got up, furious.

      1. Lol, for a prank of carrying some weight for 10 days, was it? 10 years later, risking his life for revenge…
        I can only imagine that the kid’s life has been waayy too comfy the rest of the time, to put that much significance to it…
        Also, how’d he know that Leilin was a Magi? Didn’t he want a knights training?

  1. I have a feeling that Leylin will be massacring all the matriarchs and armies that are descending on his town to send a message to the Dark Elves to tread lightly from now on, eh?

      1. Yup, only himself and “other” stronger individuals will survive… which will put him in danger because he’s not sure how many “others” will be there.

    1. Well Longbottom is exaggerating… All Leylin did was play with him a little bit and teach a naive kid a valuable life lesson. It’s better than him learning that lesson when his life is in question… He didn’t ruin his life or killed his sister… Sure he was an ass and could have at least given him a couple gold for all the hard work but i still don’t see how Longbottom can hate Leylin so much to the point of betraying his race and bent on killing Leylin… If it was Leylin in Longbottoms place, he would have let the matter go and focus on his advancement instead of taking a stupid risk like this… He had many ahole teachers and acolytes when he was in the school but did he go back and specificly took revenge on all of them after becoming a rank 2? He didn’t even give a shit about them. Too much pride is a blade waiting to cut ones self…

      1. I think Longbottom being hell-bent on getting Leylin is more of a plot device of the author to pretty much tell us that everything in this particular war was because of leylin in some way. Jenna from the Botelli family said that Leylin is the one who goes against fate, but I honestly think that Leylin is the one loved by fate.

      2. Yeah, haha, it’s freaking amusing, meanwhile leylin is controlling everything from the shadows like some evil mastermind while snickering 😛

        But really, I totally agree, just goes to show how stupid a youth is. This “betrayal” is 50% because of leylin, who he finds motivation from and blames everything that happened after that day on, and 50% him being a lustful little jackass thinking with his d*ck, aiming for the someone he can never get. I mean, if he really thought a bit about it, he’d recognize that 1: leylin gave him a valuable life lesson and 2: leylin never promised him sh*t, he just gave him what he actually was there for from the beginning as a reward, to play with the merchandise and teased him a bit about his dreams. He also never forced him to do anything. This guy just assumed stuff and got disappointed and then laughed at a bit and now he acts as if leylin killed his family and crippled him… Really.

        I’d bet that he will be killed by leylin, personally.

  2. thanks for the chapter xD
    Wanna see the scene, when Longbottom finally come before leylin, throws one of those plantseeds or trys life steal on him, just to see, that it doesn´t work XD

  3. The entire rebellion subplot is stupid and contrived. It mentions giving commoners power, but how exactly would that work? Rank 1+ magi do not happen overnight. You can’t just give a random teenaged peasant a high grade meditation technique and get a rank 1 magi out of it. It takes many years, exceptional talent, and luck to get a magi.

    Combine that with the fact that 1/5th of humanity died and 4 other races are joining into the genocide humanity and the level of stupidity needed to engage in such inner fighting is such that anyone who joins the rebellion is too stupid to have a chance at becoming a mage

    1. I agree. Who would start a rebellion in such a time… Lets say that on the off chance with some amazing miracle they believe they can win this rebellion and decimate magi (ofc it’s impossible but lets just assume the best of best case scenario for the rebellion) They will still have to face the genocide of darkness creatures after the devestating war against magi… So even if they did belive they could somehow win against magi what comes next is even more fked up since darkness creatures have a legit rank 3 matriarch and bent on killing all the humans. I get that peasants are stupid but how could they be THAT stupid… Even if a genocide won’t happen do they believe that dark elves are going to treat them better than their own race powerhouses? Magi still needs people for many things and keeping the magi generation blood flowing but darkness creatures don’t even need humans from the start… They will be turned to livestock to feed their spiders i bet…

    2. Come on, the revolution is just a ploy to have commoners stirring chaos among the human forces, as they have no idea of the details about magi is totally reasonable that they will believe it and even after a war the winner side could use a few fresh magi servants, i dont see any logic flaws on that

      1. Commoners are literally incapable of stirring chaos.
        It even explicitly says as such, then mentions him giving out high grade meditation techniques, and then mentions getting idealistic stupid teenage boys.

        It is self contradictory and stupid

    3. It’s all about fairness. If you have to compete with a person’s ancestors (backers) in order to grow, 99% won’t make it; unless you’re like Leilin, and you constantly hide your strength (when he was still an acolyte) or just a chance through sheer luck of stumbling upon some inheritance like Baelin.
      Most other Xianxia’s got the “seniors can’t meddle with juniors” plot armor, plus always some strong “good guy” saving the MC from the opponent’s backers until the MC is strong enough.
      But this story’s super reliastic and those who get “lucky” like Baelin are not nearly as impressive as someone like Leilin, who would have adapted in any situation and would have still come out to be the MC, through his carefulness and craftiness.
      Even if he didn’t have the AI chip, it would have been just like doing math without a calculator. Sure it would have taken him much longer to progress, but he would have still become someone significant in the future.
      Worst comes to worst, he would have built himself his own artificial AI, just like how he did for his apprentices, to simulate his experiments. He would have just had to upgrade it all the time, if it wasn’t fused into his soul and did it automatically

      1. You have failed to address any of my points. You only explained why someone would want to rebel. Not
        1. How could they possibly have the power to in a world of cultivation. Those rare few who do manage to break through to top are now incentivized to keep the same system in place to benefit their descendants

        2. How this is the stupidest time ever to rebel considering multiple enemies are attacking and just genocided 1/5th of humanity and intend to genocide the rest.

  4. Hoping Leylin actually has to fight. While it’s lovely to see Leylin do his thing, being the behind the scene’s puppeteer, it gets a bit tedious after so much.

    Thanks for the chapter.

  5. Jack wants his Elven harem with all the bishounen boys and lolis XD
