The Dark King – Chapter 205

I would like to thank MrMartinke for doing an awesome job by editing the chapter!

**********

The tears flowed out of Jenny’s eyes as she heard his cold words. She tightly clutched at his chest while the sounds of sobbing echoed out: “I know that you can’t forgive me for your injury! I-I can’t forgive me! But I hope I can make up for you! I will give you all my future! I’ll make up for you! Give me a chance! Please?”

Dudian quietly watched the girl who stood in front of him. He was in pain. But everyone would feel heartbroken and couldn’t bear the sight if they were in his shoes. He was silent for a long time. He slowly opened his mouth: “I can’t make up for some things. I don’t have to make up for them. The past is past! You have don’t anything wrong. I know you well, so I don’t hate you!”

He continued in a cold tone: “I hope you can live a good life from now on. Cherish it!”

“No!” Jenny saw that Dudian was ready to turn back, so she quickly pulled Dudian’s arm: “I know I did wrong. Give me a chance for me to make up for it. I want another chance! We were so happy together! We have common ideals… We… ”

“Stop!”

A sound echoed from a distance.

Dudian saw a rapidly traveling carriage approach them. A tall man wearing a suit was pointing towards the location where Dudian and Jenny stood.

Dudian’s eyes were cold. He twisted his wrist and broke open from Jenny. He looked at the carriage.

“The little devil! Stay far away from the lady. You are not allowed to get close to our house’s little miss!” The middle-aged butler jumped out as soon as the carriage stopped.

“Uncle!” Jenny wiped her tears: “How can you speak like that?!”

There was worry on the butler’s face. He looked around her: “He didn’t do anything wrong to you? Did he?”

“Uncle, stop the nonsense! He isn’t what you think he is!” Jenny said in haste.

The middle-aged butler stood in front of her and angrily stared at Dudian: “Boy, if you dare come close our lady I will break your legs!”

“Don’t use the lines you normally use to terrorize the ordinary people. I warn you if you continue to speak, I’ll break your legs now!”

The middle-aged butler was stifled for a moment as he heard Dudian’s words. However, he turned furious the next moment. But as he saw the chill and determination in Dudian’s eyes he calmed down. He suddenly remembers that the juvenile in front of him was a hunter. If he wanted to break his legs, it would be an easy task. He didn’t look at Dudian but turned to Jenny: “Miss, we should go back. The master ordered me to come to pick you up!”

“No, I do not want to go back!” Jenny was angry as she broke away from his grasp.

The middle-aged butler thought of Rudolph’s order and directly grabbed Jenny’s hand: “Miss if you don’t go back with me the master will send knights to take you away!”

“Let go of me. You let go of me!” Jenny lifted her other hand to hammer him. She struggled to break free, but with those slender arms how she could break away?

Dudian looked coldly at the scene: “You better let her go.”

The middle-aged butler looked back at him: “Boy, you always confuse our family’s little miss.”

A cold light flashed pass Dudian’s eyes. Bang! The middle-aged man loosened his fingers as a sharp pain came from his chest. He body involuntarily inverted as he dropped to the ground and screamed in pain.

Jenny broke free from the butler’s hand and hurried to reach out to Dudian.

Dudian lifted his arm to block her hand. He looked at the middle-aged butler who was moaning on the ground: “You can keep your legs to take you back home. But remember, if you provoke me once more, no one would be able to take you from my hands! Relay the message to your master that everything that has happened is in the past. If he doesn’t come after me, I won’t be interested in him either.”

The middle-aged butler was angry as he rubbed his buttocks. But he couldn’t do anything as he saw the sword-like stares of Dudian aimed at him.

Dudian looked back at Jenny and said in an indifferent tone: “I would be very grateful to you if you don’t come to disturb me from now on.” He turned back and went to the Ryan Castle.

Jenny stared at his back. She knew that the distance between them was getting bigger with every step that he took. Tears fell, but she didn’t notice them.

Dudian returned to the castle. Old Fulin , knights, squires, his children, in short, everyone was dispersed around the windows looking at the scene. Old Fulin looked at the indifferent expression of youth. He knew that everything was complicated: “Are you alright?”

Dudian quietly shook his head.

“The Miss Jenny is like a flower from the greenhouse. She doesn’t understand the true face and cruelty of the world. ” Old Fulin sighed: “I wouldn’t agree if my daughter wanted to marry a hunter. You are still young, and you will find your place in the future. Hopefully, you can get a status of noble. There will be many beautiful and kind girls that you will meet in the future.”

Dudian looked up at him: “If you want to happy, then you need to pay the price. Some pay with their lives! This world is not worthy of me to pay for everything! Giving up my career, ambition, pursuit, even my dignity for the sake of another side. Such a joke! I won’t do it the second time!”

Old Fulin deeply looked at him and sighed: “You are still young so don’t talk about absolutes. All of us are in pursuit of our happiness. Some seek love, some family, some happiness… For me, it is my family, my children. I want to see the Ryan family medal to pass from generation to generation. For this, I’m ready and willing to give up my everything!”

Dudian gazed at him: “But there is something that can’t be bought or paid for. The heart is the most difficult to predict. Wealth and power are stuff that you can get as long as you are willing to pay for everything.”

  1. thanks for the chapter glad he didn’t take jenny back also glad he didn’t do anything to her even though she was at fault for being ignorant

    1. My only regret is he didn’t show her his wounds he got from prison. In her head, he was probably only locked up, and wouldn’t be treated to badly. It could wake her up to reality.

      After all she is too ignorant and pure, maybe it would be the push she needed to start seeing the dark sides of all people. Especially her bastard father.

      1. Yeah, I kinda wanted him to just take off his shirt and be like “This is your fault. Tell me honestly, do you believe that I could ever forgive you? Do you think for one fucking moment that I could ever love you again after this?!”

        Three blowjobs later, everything would be totally fine though lol.

        1. shut up Mike you fucking pervert, I thought you only enjoyed harem lel.

          Seriously tho I’ve seen those kind of scenes in alot of random amateurish fantasy english novels and I see that you follow that train as well, its too edgy and childish to just show her his scars like that like most of your stories that I’ve dropped because of those generic retarded moments, thats why you need to read some good novels to take notes from them and mature in your writing !

          I’d recommend :
          -The broken empire series from Mark Lawrence.
          -The light bringer serie.
          -Worm & twig from Wildbow.
          -The third law from Joe abercrombie.
          – Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch.
          – Game of throne (especially the three first books) they really show how to create an immersive rich and realistic world.
          – others I’m problably forgetting =)

      2. this!!!!. i really wanted him to take off his shirt man, all that f**cking pain! and i’m sorry to wipe it off??. sod off!

  2. Thanks for everything, I really mean it. If it hadn’t been for you Madsnail and the editor, this series may have never surfaced for us.

  3. man, it seems some people or maybe some translators envy and dont like your translation release speed. well, dont worry, we arent stupid and know that you’ve done amazing work. thank you so much

  4. *no one would be able to take you form my hands!

    *no one would be able to take you from my hands!

    i like this series, its simple and straightforward with fast translating speed… only problem i have is there are times where the editing is poor, its gotten better with latest chapters but those earlier chapters were way off

  5. I can’t even count how many chapters you put out today, dk has a mass release every day it seems and today was a mega release.

  6. Dean I’m soo proud! …Though we all know this is probably temporary and he’ll end up taking her back in the future. I doubt she’s given up. Why would she? He proved she still has a hold on him when he attacked the butler for touching her. She may never hold his entire heart again but she’ll undoubtedly get her hands on about half of it.

    1. He has twisted personality, It is so ironic, when the author at time tries to portray how injustice Dean was treated, when Dean himself presents the same treatment to others. Killed an innocent widow woman, pushed blame on Vick when technically that guy wasn’t involved with what happened to him… If he wants to exert revenge why not go straight to the source? To Rody? Dean didn’t even bat an eye in killing that woman, and almost killed that kid too. That’s truly messed up, If the author changes again, and states that Dean forgives the girl, or spares someone, that would be truly contradictory its like saying that Dean has a conscience when he apparently does not.

        1. he study about the cruel reality man. still young. think about if anyone else do it to you , can’t you do it too? anyways , he learn all he know from bad guys. so that probably change his way of thinking

      1. Not really i mean. Do you think the wifi didnt knew her husband was taking bribes? She just wanted the money to keep rolling in. The one Who ignores evil is as guilty as the one Who perform it. And should receive the same punishment.
        KILL THEM ALL DEAN

      2. Well on the Vick part it is kind of implied he was involved. I mean Vick liked Jenny so he got his father to work with her father to get rid of Dean so they could be together. Plus after being in prison as a teen for 3 years his personality has gotten darker so he cares less about who he hurts and more about the results.

    1. he lost it in prison or at least that’s how I understood it, also the first part of the novel showed how injustice Dean was treated for the purpose of leading him to reciprocate without the readers being sensitive about it.

    1. They’ve been thrown back to their old house, but only that. Additionally there is another child (it was not explained if it was from adoption or birth). So all in all they fared pretty okay.

  7. If Dean be with Jenny one more time I ll drop this novel for sure.I m glad that he become more like a dark king))))
    Thanks for chapter!!

    1. It’s not that he doesn’t have a conscience but more has learnt in the most painful way possible, that if he lets it rule him he will die.

      Besides think of everything he has been through. From coming from a peaceful time, then the world ends and his parents try to save him and give him the responsibility to restore humanity. Finding out how harsh the conditions are, to seeing the bizarre situation of hunters and scavengers. Having to fight beasts and undead to do his job. Experiencing those without wealth or strength being controlled, bullied, and attacked, as if their lives have no value. Finding out the oppression exerted by Nobles and the Holy Church. Desperately trying to reach a safe position where his life is secure and protected against the various powers.

      He gains status in front of public, and strength in front the various powers. He finds someone he loves and wants to escape his responsibilities, the pressure of getting stronger and risking his life. As for restoring humanity with his knowledge that would of been easier after marrying Jenny.

      In the end relaxed his guard, underestimated the lengths people would go to deal with him for minor and often stupid things. It isn’t until Jenny doesn’t believe him and he gets carted of to prison without a trial and without following the law, that his hearts truly brakes and realises his folly.

      As for the people he has killed. Well scavengers and hunters where all people that tried to kill him first. Prison guards simply deserved it. The judge deserved it, as for his wife she lived of his ill gotten gains(gamble and took bribes), and while she might not of done anything to MC, she can be regarded of guilty by association or accessory to her husbands crimes. As for considering killing the kid, well MC tried to commit perfect crimes so shift the blame and pave way to clear his own name, using guilty parties, not surprising he would consider it if you think of the potential results satisfying his revenge, had he not worn the mask kid would be dead without a doubt.

      He made a lot of stupid moves in the past, and seems to have learnt his lesson. So what if he becomes ruthless, wouldn’t expect any less with a name like the Dark King. That said even then he should be allowed to love and be loved. I can’t see anything happening with Jenny unless she learns what her father has done. Maybe even requiring her father to act against her, for MC so show some real interest again.

      1. Yes, does killing that widow part of them?? Don’t spout things like he didn’t have a choice, or how he was mistreated, When he starts treating others with the same injustice that he had suffered, he technically does not have conscience, basically he is straight up sociopath. That was evident when he didn’t bat an eye when he killed that woman, and almost killed that kid,and even when he framed vick. He wants to be a devil or dark king? for what purpose? I thought for revenge for the injustice he has suffered,and to grow strong so he doesn’t suffer such injustice again, but no. It was just his personality from the beginning, he’s a sociopath that doesn’t care about other, all he cares about is his plan, his well being, and his ego, killing bystanders, innocents, kids doesn’t matter as long at it contributes to his plot. At the same time we don’t know what his end goal is, but its definitely not “to restore humanity”

        1. It’s more like how he tried to change the system from the inside by becoming an influential person in the judiciary system. But he got roadblocked because of the nobility and he realised that changing the system from the inside out and playing by it’s rules wouldn’t work. Because there are multiple sets of rules and the nobility use a different, superior set.

          This forces him to go outside the rules, which is showcased by him turning to the alchemists. And by becoming ruthless, because it’s the best and maybe only way for him to achieve his goals. He is already disadvantaged, the nobility is corrupt and ruthless, if he kept his idealistic belief in the way that Jenny did/does he would just get run over achieving nothing but his own slow and painful demise. Best case scenario, he might have ended up as a mid-level character that would never be influential because he wouldn’t play the ‘game’ of corruption and nepotism.

          The world has chewed him up and spit him out when he tried to do things peacefully. For his own sake, he had to change and so he did.

        2. You cant deny one bit that he wasn’t mistreated because he was in fact mistreated. He was not evil before, but now has indeed become more evil. The nobles hes targeting are not one bit less evil than him though. The widow and kid are indeed the most innocent people he has hurt but I don’t think he cares much and has no reason as there related to the person who tore him away from a girl he was going to give up everything for.

          1. Yes he was mistreated, does that make it ok for him to mistreat others?? How does that make him any different from the ones that put him in prison???? He is basically killing, and leading innocent people to the same hardship that he have suffered. He killed an innocent widow, made a kid an orphan, and sent Vich to the prison that he suffered from… How is he different than the ones that put him there… Well whatever, I guess I am the only one that is disappointed with this change of character, I am OK with revenge, or leading the Milan and borton family downfall but when he acts the same way as the ones that he exerts in vengeance on, it make the novel a big hypocrisy

            1. (English aint my native langugae, sorry)Please, wtf are you talking about? It’s clear you dont know sh*t, your own comment even aswer your question. They hurt him so he hurst them back. Why? Simple, BECAUSE WE ARE HUMAN WE ARE NOT PERFECT WE ARE DEPPLY FLAWED. PEOPLE KILL FOR LESS AND FOR MORE THAN THAT REASON. I studied the law and I work in the Prosecution office as an assistant. The cases that we in the REALITY have to deal with, make this so call “Dark king” story pale in comparision, nothing but childs play.
              Grow up dude, people dont need a reason to kill someone, if it wasnt beacuase we evolved and made laws in our society, we as a espicie would have been extinct a long time ago. Because animals kill with a purpouse to eat, we as humans dont.
              Even worse when someone mistreated another person leading in the murder of the first one, that is called a MOTIVE. Not everyone in our society is a good person, just as not everyone is a bad person. The point is we are humans and as such we are capable of ANYTHING.
              You talk about hipocrisy? I found your entiry comment as an hipocrisy.

  8. i started this series two days ago, and i have to say i love it, i can’t put it down. The story is well told and well translated thank you for the spead at which you operate. you will always have my vote.

      1. Haha. My reading knows no limits! I readily admit that it is more than a hobby, for me it’s my way of life. As for the two hundred and five chapters…. thats all I’ve read in this series, (but i’m reading series as well at this time, so the chapter count is probably a lot higher than that.) so yes… i am a literary monster
        .

  9. FFFFFFUFUUUUUUUU aight. Dean my boy. *swings my arm over his shoulder* Perfect, you’re performance was perfect. Never again. Never. Again.

  10. Who dare to slander daoist madsnail shall be besieged by divine tribulation.
    I love this novel , maybe I love the translator more than the novel.

  11. Yeah.Good job i wouldn’t take her as maid after this.It’s only beginning this novel will have 1500 chapter +(slow advancing of the story i think).Anyway she doesn’t match Dean(his futureself) she is more naive than he was.She is ordinary human.Glenn or nightingale are more reasonable choices.

  12. you have to remember Dean in a tough spot first he came from a safe modern world then to a world where killing is allowed and law non existent to high power people dont say killing isnt allowed happens all the time in this novel plus u have to hunt monsters i know if i was in deans spot id have killed myself or mess with wrong person and be killed or framed its so easy for the nobles to get rid of people as long as the evidence isnt to obvious

  13. Thank you Madsnail and MrMartinke. I notice how after every release, you guys make sure it doesn’t end in a cliffhanger that leaves us suffering in agony. I really appreciate that. Thanks for the translations!

    On another note, Dudian better take advantage of this opportunity and use Jenny while he can. When he meets his later soulmate (because he probably will later in the series), we don’t want the same thing to happen as what happened with Jenny XD

  14. You can’t actually blame Dean for that.his 3 years in prison changed him totally.and besides it’s titled dark king for a reason

  15. Come on guys teenage is the most fragile part of everyone’s life. He is still a teenage after all, well he matured earlier though.

  16. too much comments becuz of jenny hahaha
    anyway i hope mc won’t abandon his heart/feelings/happiness =)
