Okay, so after looking at the polls and the comments you guys have left me, I've decided to compromise and put both chapter links and the entire story into 1 page. It'll take a bit of time before the rest of the books are condensed into 1 page, but I'll try to do them ASAP.

LSK – Side Stories: For all of you. (Part 2)

*Disclaimer note: This is merely a translation of the original Chinese version. I do not claim any part in the creation of the original story.


Neo looked at Creus, speechless. The latter was rather rugged and scuffed; his clothes were untidy and there were even a few tears in them, and his face was covered in bruises. Creus looked nothing like the ever elegant and graceful Sun Knight. The only thing one could say in his favour was his beautiful golden hair; it still shined beautifully under the sun despite it being all messed up.

"You've been fighting?"

"I was beaten up." Creus winced as he spoke, the bruises acting up as he spoke. "But it's alright!" he smiled brilliantly. "Roland helped me beat them back!"

"Incompetent!" Neo snorted. "You should fight your own fights!"

"But why?" Creus immediately objected. "There were ten of them! Even with Roland there were only two of us! Two winning against ten is already quite impressive!"

"Shouldn't you be saying one against ten?" Neo retorted with a snort. "With your sword skills, you couldn't have dealt with even a single one."

'Although, as good as Roland's sword skills are, could he really have managed to fight against ten and still win?' A shred of doubt crept into Neo's mind.

"I did help!" Creus insisted.

Neo looked at him disbelievingly.

"I may not have been able to help fight against them, but I helped to block their blows, and I helped to divert their attention away from them, and I even managed to get help! If I hadn't gotten Leithe to help, Roland wouldn't have been able to defeat all ten of them either!"

"You know Leithe?" Neo asked in surprise. 'This boy might not be strong, but he sure knows all the ones who are strong…… I guess one can say that this is a talent too?'

"Nope," Creus replied frankly.

"… …" After a moment of speechlessness, he reminded the boy, "But you said you got Leithe to help."

"Oh…!" Creus sighed impatiently and said matter-of-factly, "I knew at first glance that he was a good guy. If he were to see Roland and I getting beat up by so many, he would have immediately jumped in and help without asking why! So when I saw Roland losing against them I immediately ran to get him!"

Neo was speechless. 'One could call this a talent too, a talent for being a cowardly person……'

He then asked the boy the same question without much hope, "Forget it. I want to ask you this: Why do you wish to be the Sun Knight?"

When he heard this question, Creus' eyes immediately lit up.

"'Cause I want to stand in your place!"

"My place?" Neo frowned, not really understanding him. Is he saying that he wants the Sun Knight's position? But what a strange way to say so.

Creus gestured wildly with his hands whilst saying excitedly, "Yup! Your place. You have so many people standing by your side to your left and right! I counted; there're eleven of them! I want them to stand by my side too; it'll be like I have eleven brothers! That would be awesome!"

Neo chuckled at that. "Even if you were to become the next Sun Knight, they won't be standing by your side. The ones who will be standing by your side would be the next generation's Twelve Holy Knights."

"Huh?" Creus didn't really seem to understand that. "Next generation? Will there still be eleven of them?"

"Of course."

"Then that's alright!" Creus beamed at that. "That's still eleven! As long as there's not one less. But it would be better if there's one more; six to my right and six to my left, how cool is that!"

Neo couldn't really say what he felt when he heard such an answer to his question, so he moved on to the next question. "And what would you sacrifice your life for?"

Like any ordinary twelve year old, Creus had never thought about such a question before. He looked down and frowned as he thought hard. Neo wasn't in a hurry and patiently waited for him to figure out his answer.

Finally, Creus looked back up with a smile. Just then, the afternoon sun glinted on his golden hair, dazzling Neo for a moment.

"I would sacrifice my life to protect."


Neo smiled as he looked around the hall, everyone's gaze upon him as they waited with baited breath for his decision. He then announced loudly, "I've decided that the next Sun Knight shall be – Creus!"

The entire hall fell silent, but only for a moment before it erupted.

"Why did you choose me?"

Creus certainly looked shocked. Even though he had stepped forward, his eyes kept turning to look behind him at a certain friend.

"Well, about that……"

Neo looked at Roland. The latter's face, arms and legs were unmarred by any bruises or cuts. He then looked back down at Creus with his badly bruised face and smiled faintly, "Probably because of that beautiful golden hair of yours."


How absurd!

The Twelve Holy Knights plus one soon-to-be-wed royal knight had gathered in the Sun Knight's room and opened up the underground cellar. They had then left carrying barrels of wine with them to some random prayer room where they proceeded to get drunk. After several bottles of wine each, it could be firmly declared that they were all totally and completely smashed.

Roland sighed at the sight before him, yet, in a strange way he felt rather relieved. The absurdity of the real Twelve Holy Knights' actions made the absurdity of a Death Knight staying in the Church of Light insignificant in comparison.

After all, is there anything more absurd than the existence of a wine cellar under the Sun Knight's room?

Roland looked at the most absurd of them all – the Sun Knight. The latter – in a rare occurrence – had finally succumbed to the staggering amount of alcohol in his blood. His cheeks were flushed red and his blue eyes unfocused.

This was so different from his image of the perfect Sun Knight, and yet, why was he the one chosen to become the Sun Knight?

Roland had to admit that this had been bothering for the past ten years. As he recalled the questions the previous Sun Knight had asked him, Roland wondered if Creus had been asked the same questions too. Could it be that he had given a better answer than him?



Roland finally voiced the question that had been plaguing him for more than ten years now. "Why did you wish to be the Sun Knight?"

"For all of you!"

'For all of us?' Roland looked at him carefully. The latter was swaying on his feet and irrefutably drunk. Perhaps he wasn't really aware of what he was saying? Roland frowned, but in the end he couldn't resist asking another question. "And what would you sacrifice your life for?"

"Huh? Whaz zhat you say?"

Creus was now slumped on the table, a silly smile on his face. Roland repeated his question in a louder voice: "What would you sacrifice your life for?"

Creus stared at Roland and then at the rest of the knights gathered in the room before smiling drunkenly.

"For all of you!"

  1. Thanks for another great translation Lealynn!
    I really liked this side story, its heartwarming ^-^
    (Am I weird for thinking that? Hope not..)

  2. Tys for the update
    Lol a talent for being a cowardly person
    Will the side stories be a faster update?

  3. Thank you so much! I had no idea you were translating any of the side stories! Best suprise ever :D
    Am I the only one wondering how much alcohol Creus would've had to drink to get drunk? ^.^'

    By the way, is there any news on the release of the 8th book yet? I saw that the author just posted 3 previews of it!

  4. Thank you for the awesome-ness! Creus is amazing. I love how Neo was wondering if his cowardliness was a worthy skill and all.

  5. WOW!!!!!!! so many thanks!!!!
    so cute and funny!!
    hahaha cowardliness skill XD

  6. See?!? Creus is somehow sompetant to be the Sun Knight!

  7. Thank you Lealynn !
    I wonder if Roland understood what sun had said.

  8. nooooo.... they discovered the wine cellar!!! how did they manage to do so???? I'm going to be wondering about it like forever! I'm sure the author never explained that, or never will... Though I'm glad that the nonsensical actions of th eholy knights made him feel less awkward about things ^_^. Do the rest of the holy knights know that eliot is hell? then what about roland? now my head is full of questions... (TT^TT) thanks for the amazing traduction BTW

  9. Awww so cute! I don't mind as long as sun's in it! All this fake personality really makes me wonder. What are the original knights like? Did they actually act like the image people thought or they like the 38th gen. Virgin Storm, Homemaker Ice, Womanizer Earth?

  10. Although I've known Creus's answer, I still teared a little. XD

  11. Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much! I've read the summaries, but they just don't compare to the actual story!!

    ROFL!! Wow, Creus ALWAYS gets what he wants, even to little details like his 11+1!! And, heh, I guess the 12 holy knights really are even closer than I thought, if they even know about the secret wine cellar! The more I read the more how I see they really are brothers - though granted, brothers that may NOT always get along very well... Makes me think that they actually know quite a bit that they're NOT supposed to know, if that makes any sense. ;) Like I read somewhere how Ice makes snacks for ALL of them! And Creus is SUCH the perfect Sun Knight, even if he can't fight without having to rely on magic!

  12. Main story is yummy... Side stories are yummy... I love LSK xD Thanks for translating it, so non-chinese reading noobs like me can bask in the amazingness that is LSK xD

  13. aww....its so..very...good...I love you Creus!!! Amazing answer!!! hahaha....I really love LEGEND OF THE SUN KNIGHT!!! umm...Miss Leallyn, Which will update faster? the side story or the main story? ^_^ just excited for the next book...^_^

  14. Aaaaaaaaaw. That is so damn cute, seriously. X3 Love the side stories. <3

  15. Creus' answer... so this was why Neo chose Creus, selfless, you can see that he loves his 12 knights very much aside from the fact that he almost went on a killing spree after leaf died

    thanks Lealynn

  16. getting drunk with Sun's wine. And on top of that together, all of them, fantastic xD
    great chapters, Thank you very much Lealynn!! You're fantastic.

  17. Aww thanks.
    That was soooo~ cute!
    -"What would you sacrifice your life for?"
    -"For all of you!"
    He's too cute! ♥

  18. Thank you soooo much!!!

    Creus is sooo cute!!!!!

    I'm sorry Creus for calling you a weakling before... he's just soo awesome and cute!!!

    thank you so much for this!! ^^

  19. I bet creus drank more wine than the other twelve put together XD. If not he wouldn't have been smashed. good thing that he is so good at wine-making, I bet that he most have drunk all the alcohol that was left by the previous sun knights and now his amprentice will only have aple wine to drink... maybe that will push the apprentice to become a good wine merchant (just like creus) to get himself some variety XDXDXD


  20. oh my that previous Sun Knight was so sneaky!!!!!!!! He didnt actually mena his hair and this whole time Sun thought it was his hair but it was his will to protect. Thanks so much fo rthis *though really late ahah*
