Law of the devil chapter 152

The 152th chapter “Completely Shatter”

Quivering in his mind, Earl Raymond couldn’t even bring himself to look Du Wei in the eyes.

Unable to bear it, the Earl tilted his head to the side as he whispered: “You… Also thought of this?”

“Yes, I did, and I feel the situation now is the best timing.” Still with a smile on his face, Du Wei then lifted up his mage robe to pull out a knife from his bosom!

Holding the dagger with both of his hands, the young teen pointed it at his father and spoke with a gentle smile: “You see father? Since you are unable to make the decision, then let me give you a hand!”

Finishing his words, Du Wei suddenly tried to stab the dagger at the Earl without effort!

Earl Raymond closed his eyes as he painfully sighed. When he did this, he also seems to hear the same sound coming from captain Alpha from his side.

When the Earl opened his eyes, Alpha was already in front of him with his sword drawn. As for his son, he could see a series of blood droplets trickling down from Du Wei’s shoulder.

Writhing in pain, even the wrinkles on Du Wei’s forehead could be seen. Still, Du Wei kept the same gentle smile on his face as looked straight into the Earl’s eyes: “You see? How simple was that? The matter is not that complicated, right?”

With that, he turned around and walked far, far away…  Jumping down from the platform, he landed right on top of the blue slated floor of the central square.

Subsequently, Du Wei took in a deep breath before uttering a loud cry: “You!!!”

This shout was aimed directly at the green robed Gandalf in the middle of the central square.

After sweeping through the audience with his gaze earlier, no one in the audience dared to challenge this Green robed Gandalf anymore. But when Du Wei cried out at this moment, he managed to catch the attention of everyone present.

“You!” Du Wei pointed his finger towards Gandalf before speaking his next words: “I can prove it! You are a fake!”

This one sentence rumbled through the ears of the entire audience!

Just when everyone was in the middle of being awestruck by this green robed Gandalf, this thin and weak looking teenage suddenly came out into the square. With countless eyes of surprise, shock, fear, or disdain, everyone had their eyes fixed right on Du Wei as he slowly walked forward.

“You.” Without any effort to camouflage the disdain on his face, Du Wei kept pointing his finger at this green robed Gandalf: “I can prove it, you are a fake! Moreover, you said earlier who else wants to try, right?”

The smile on Du Wei’s face showed no signs of fear as he pointed at his own nose: “I want to give it a shot!”

“Earl Raymond!” The Crown Prince abruptly turned around and fixed his gaze right up towards the chief of the Rowling Household, his eyes full of questioning and anger.

Barely keeping his body straight, the Earl sighed softly before taking a deep breath. In a loud but clear voice, he began speaking: “Your highness….. This is my son, also my eldest son.”

“Of course I know he is your son!” The eyes of the Crown Prince burned with rage: “But why is your son doing this?!”

Not replying immediately, the Earl showed traces of pain in his eyes as he spoke in a slow monotone voice: “When he was born, I was still serving the empire in the southeastern ocean. For the empire, I slaughtered all those indigenous tribes living on the islands. For the empire, I wasn’t present in his younger years. By the time I returned, he was already all grown up. Sadly, I never favored this son of mine and even went as far as to kick him out of the capital. But fate would not let it be. In the end, he returned……”

Speaking up to the word “Returned”, Earl Raymond gave the Crown Prince a deep and piercing gaze. Under this impressive gaze, even the Crown Prince was stirring in his heart.

Yes, he returned…… Also not by my choice but yours! If you did not force me to call him back, he would still be my son even if he is not favored by me! But by calling him back….. I ended up pushing him to this point! Although his face remained calm, the Earl was secretly crying in his heart.

“It is this son of mine that sabotaged your big plans two days ago.” His voice took on a more serious tone: “For this event, my son went against my will and became good friends with his highness Son…. Also, he became a member of the magic union….. So…..” The audience may not see it, but the Earl was squeezing his hand so tightly behind his back that even the veins were popping up on his arm! One word at a time, he slowly spit out his next words with absolute clarity: “From today onwards, Du Wei Rowling is no longer my son! I repeat! From here on out, he is formally evicted from Rowling Household! All his sins, errors, and all his misgivings will be shouldered solely by him!”

Finally, Earl Raymond’s expression suddenly took on a shaky color. Nonetheless, this Rowling Household patriarch pushed on and met the Crown Prince with decisive eyes: “If he dare go against your highness today, I will not say anything even if you kill him on the spot!”

When Earl Raymond finished the last of his words, Du Wei already had his eyes closed with the sun shining on his face because he suddenly felt the light was unbearable harsh on him today.


(The following paragraphs are Du Wei’s thoughts)

Yes, that’s right…… This is the right course of action father. HA-HA……  Isn’t it really simple?!

With his back facing his father, Du Wei no longer looked back.

Yes, that’s right father. For the good of the entire family, I must be sacrificed!

How can I possibly compete with your grand plan of supporting the Crown Prince? In fact, I personally prevented the assassination attempt on the young prince. If in the future the Crown Prince does take the crown, there is no way he would fully trust you as long as I live! Such a situation cannot be allowed…. Father, back when we had the talk in the study room, you already had this in mind…. This is point one!

Also… What is my identity? A Magician and a member of the Magic Unions!

This is a joke…… What a cruel joke! When I enter this new magic school in the future, wouldn’t I have to help the new emperor pursue his interest? If I do that, wouldn’t the family be stuck in the crossfire between the royal family and the magic union? With both sides aiming at the family, the Rowling Household will not survive even if this coup succeeds! This is the second point!

And now today this Gandalf suddenly jumped out of nowhere. Regardless of the outcome, the magic union will not let it slide! The crime of pretending to be the disciple of Gandalf and faking the death of the number one Magister of the continent! HA-HA! With all these charges, how can I possibly stay in the family? For all these crimes, the right thing to do is to bear it alone! Moreover, if the Crown Prince succeeds in his coup, he will definitely believe this Gandalf is the real deal! What irony! If this green robed Gandalf is real, then what about me? This is the third point!

Also, the most appropriate move in this situation is to openly break apart from your own son. Once you have disowned me, the Crown Prince will see it as your way of showing absolute devotion! For this loyalty, the Rowling Household will be forever favored as long as the Crown Prince sits on the throne!

In the last conversation they had, Du Wei is certain his father already had the intention of doing this…. But to stall it up till this point, Du Wei believes his father still holds some feelings for him, right?

Well, a little bit, just a little bit……

Thinking about this, Du Wei opened his eyes to face the harsh sunlight.

The light may be harsh, but once it is endured long enough, wouldn’t it become the norm again? Hehe……

Looking at the green robed Gandalf standing in front of him from a distance, he noticed the other side was also looking at him with eyes of curiosity.

Just like this, one large and one small wizard inspected each other for a good while. Suddenly, this green robed Gandalf started give out a very odd laugh.

“You are my last disciple?”

“That’s right, I am.” Du Wei spoke with a light voice: “To be accurate, I am not your ‘disciple’ but Gandalf’s disciple.”

After a long pause, this green robed wizard suddenly sighed in a very odd way: “It seems like I took on a really good apprentice…. Hmm, that thing on your head, Chris gave it to you, right?”

Raising an eyebrow Du Wei was somewhat surprised: “Oh, you also know about Chris…… Humph, it seems like all of the continent’s top experts know about that old guy and his identity. For someone like that, wouldn’t it be wiser to keep a low profile?!”

With strangeness in his eyes, this green robed wizard continued to speak: “I know him because I am really Gandalf.”

“Ludicrous!” Du Wei suddenly cried out a hard laugh. Then in front of thousands of onlookers, he raised a finger and pointed straight at this green robed mage: “Nonsense! If you are Gandalf, then I am Aragon!”

If you are Gandalf, then I am Aragon……

These words reverberated in the sky as the young teenager brazenly laughed without restraint. Unknown to him, he didn’t know the significance of his words at the time of saying this…..

Listening to the mockery of this juvenile, this green robed wizard showed no sign of anger. Instead, he simply shook his head back and forth as if disappointed: “You really want to fight with me? For what? You can just get out of here like this. On the count of you being my apprentice, I won’t make it difficult for you. Also, I promise you none here will either. If the Crown prince changes his mind, I’m certain I can change his mind.”

“No need.” Du Wei shakes his head: “I don’t want to leave this place.”

Completely break apart from his family.

His own existence for the family was a mistake, a baggage, a burden! Only by totally leaving the family will they gain the greatest interest.

Mother, I use this method to follow through on my oath is not a mistake, right?

Du Wei suddenly turned around and looked up at Prince Son standing there with his signature smile. In a loud voice, he cried out a laugh: “Prince Son, you still have room on your side? I think that despite my low level of strength, I can still be of value to you, right?”

Still donning his gentle smile, Prince Son replied in a delightful voice: “You are most welcomed here.”

Nodding, Du Wei had a face of self-mockery: “Well then, if you manage to take the crown, what title can you give me?”

The young prince suddenly broke out into a fitting laugh. Then turning to give his father Augustine the 6th a glance, he cried out:

“Du Wei, if you help me take the crown, I will bestow upon you the title of a Duke! In my life, I have always liked the Tulip flower…. I knight thee Grand Duke of Tulip! As long as my flag flies in the sky, I swear to you that the Tulip name will never face a time of decline on this continent!”

  1. Aside from this author’s (also duwei’s) terrible naming sense, this novel is a gem. Thanks for the chapter!

  2. Alright that settles it everyone sucks at naming the end . Prince son will then rename the capital to the majestic land of Bob and the empire to the great land of largness .Tadah 😀
    …Also thanks .

  3. This world naming sense. Having tulip as a crest would be fine and all but calling him duke of tulip is awful. This could be consider as a shame play of sort

    • Well it’s not too far off real world noble titles tbh.

      Being invited to the Order of the Garter in England for instance is pretty much one of the highest honors a Commonwealth citizen could ever expect to be awarded without being born with one.

      At least the Austrians and Spanish use names like Order of the Golden Fleece which has mythological background. The Order of the Garter makes it sound like the King of England was in a brothel when he came up with the idea for his knights order.

    • Let me make this a trip to feeladelphia. Tulip means true love. and in his act of true love towards the person in this foreign world that he has accepted as his mother, bore all the weight of the family just so that the clan status will not fall.

  4. Thx!

    Ah… Guess Hussein, Medusa and that mshe needs to chsnge their base of operations. Also, I feel sry for the mother… Hope she doesn’t get sick, get killed or takes suicide… She one of the few noble mother’s who actually cares for her “useless” son.

  5. This is what i have been waiting for! but i feel sorry for the mother she will be hearthbroken when she finds out.
    Thanks fot the chapter!

  6. thanks for the chapter!
    this needed to happen sadly.
    I do find it funny how he can send assassins after his son to kill him but to exile from the household is even harder than that. I respect the hell out of his father but he’s been a crappy father to du wei. the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few I guess.

      • there’s a difference between sacrificing a member of your family and sacrificing a problem child.
        for the roland family du wei is while unintentionally going against the family massively. there hanging on by a thread as both side the royal family and the magic union are pressuring him. and now all of a sudden du wei shows up and has basically made it 50x times harder for his father. du wei needed to be severed from the family. his father was supporting the crown prince due to his superiority in position and consolidating power but his son is for the other faction and is basically a destabilizing influence on the roland family. so despite his own wishes as a father he needs to do this

        • the Erl has just not ben seeing it his so called misfit/worthless son is worth more then the roland family witch he makes more then they do with less land and power he even has ties with the magic union that are the longest lived power here when he proves that fake is a fake the crown prince will have no ground to stand on and will have to face the magic union head on the 2 8th level mages that are effetely on prince sons side can end the crown prince and the rest of there forces on there own

          the roland family will have to blame the Erl for this if they are to live pass this failure of a head and even if they avoid the gallows their land and power will go to du wei along with dame near all of the other nobles that rebelled plus du wei has just ben given a title that is 2nd to king by price son the current hair to the thorn as it stands du wei before this out did his dad and after this will have a place of power and horror for his new family name that will last more then 100 years that none of the nobles can touch because of the backing of the roil faction and the magic union if he plays his cards right he can even destroy the temple and replace it will a new faith or at lest get the Pope and his fowlers removed witch is his only other faction that can do anything against him not that they can do much given he has the backing of the current king and the magic union along with a large portion of the people given how he managed his land witch makes up 1/3rd of the empire and has the backing of just about all trade markets with his FedEx and privet fleet of ships.

          du wei has made him self out to be one of the greatest minds of this age with the backing to do anything he wants to and has the power take the empire if he wanted it.

          • meh, both of them are at fault. He did not show his ability firsthand. Likewise, his father thought of his family name first and foremost.

        • But allow me to point out a few things. The earl since day one of this tirelessly depressing arc has been pit maneuvering de wui to the other side before he began helping ol’prince son (assassination attempt in the forest). Also lets be fair de wui would have never have helped prince son had he not been kept in the dark and he even pointed this out himself during the abyss chapter but the “great” earl did what most dead beats do and sold his son for a crack rock called “title preservation” luckily prince son playing the part of an ACS agent got du wei out the clutches of the drug dealer (Crown prince)

          • the dad has done nothing to help or hinder du wei so far. i mean apart from sending assassins after him to kill him.
            everything du wei has done was the product of his own actions directly or indirectly.
            he dug himself into a trench which has screwed up his father’s plan to keep the roland family afloat but supporting indirectly the group his father is going against.

            • it only takes one molecule set off a chain explosion and the assassination attempt was that molecule because it lit the dynamite for (Du Wei not taking his father’s advice not to leave the maner) that would expand into event thats happening now with the after shocks being Du Wei’s new title menship as tulip. but now i guess he can get this party started no parental duty no lineage up keep (other than his own) only chaos and women lots of women eight to be current

  7. Man the yoai is strong with this one……if you help me ill name you after a slang term for the female genital

      • I think most of you are missing the fact that this is a world of swords and magic and their tulip is not the same as the one we know besides this is from the prince that loves magic witch makes it a high chance it has a use in magic potions or has its own powers.
        besides the fact that the use of flowers in house names is some thing in this empire done only with the royal family and their branch families as such he is gaining not only a higher title then his father but also a higher hailed name for his house witch he will be head of.

  8. No no no no!!! It happened!!! Poor DuWei… Poor DuWei’s mum…. Poor little bro…. :((

    Seriously, it just several chapters and I already invest lots of feeling into this novel!

    Thank you BCAT, for translating this…

    hu hu hu… poor DuWei…..

  9. YES! Finally Du Wei makes move and joins the side of Prince Son. We all saw this coming, and now it is finally here. Such a gratifying feeling.
