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: Facing darkness.

*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.


Leithe Judge kneeled on the ground, his head bowed and his hands clasped together as he prayed to the God of Light, the symbol of the god – His cross – in front of him.

The prayer room had been thoughtfully designed to give the greatest impact on the devotee. The room was rather dark, with only a window above the God of Light's cross to let in light, bathing the cross in sunlight.

But due to this design, the all-black Judge Knight kneeled before the cross was also shrouded entirely in darkness, making it almost impossible to distinguish his figure from the shadows of the room.


'The Judge Knight is coming. Hurry, run……'

'You only know how to torture the chained sinners! Do you really think you are a holy knight?'

'The Judge Knight is a cold and ruthless bastard…… take care never to provoke him!'

'Please- please forgive me…… Should not the gods forgive the sinners? Why won't you forgive me?!'

'Look at you, all dressed in black like a demon from hell, and you call yourself a holy knight?'


"Even during such busy times the Judge Knight does not neglect to pray to the God of Light. This Sun is most impressed."

Leithe blinked at the sudden glare of light, and turning around, he saw that the door to the prayer room had been opened. The man leaning in the doorway had a head of golden hair that shined beautifully in the light bathing his figure.

Such brightness.

Leithe looked away and back down. "Praying to the God of Light is the only way I can ascertain to myself that I am still a holy knight."

Creus blinked at that in surprise and hurriedly moved forward into the dark room. "Has something happened?" he asked in concern.

Leithe merely shook his head and said, "I am just confused. Am I really a holy knight?...... Or just a ……weapon." By the end of his mutterings, his voice was so soft that he could hardly be heard.

"Of course you're a holy knight!" exclaimed Creus. "You're the Judge Knight, even! Leithe, if you don't believe yourself to be a holy knight, then no one would be qualified to be one!"

Leithe gave him a faint smile, but instead brought up something completely unrelated. "Creus, do you know where the cross of the God of Light is placed in the Judgement area?"

Creus blinked at that and replied frankly, "I've never really noticed."

"To enable the sinners to look upon the cross and repent their sins, the cross is hanged directly opposite the sinners where they can see it. When questioning them, the cross would always be behind me…… My back is always turned to the God of Light's cross, whilst I face the worst of sins and use even crueller methods to torture answers out of them."

All kinds of evil sins – torture racks, whippings, and even death…… Leithe thought back to the things he had to do almost daily, and realised dully that not a single one of them could prove himself to be a holy knight. Instead, they only made him feel dirty and filled with darkness. With just a slip, he would stumble and fall into the dark abyss of hell, never to make his way out again……

"You are the Judge Knight, and punishing the sinners has always been the duty of the Judge Knight, therefore, you are a holy knight!" Creus comforted clumsily.

"Really? But I can never tell when I might slip and follow them into that pitch-black darkness."

Leithe then stood up and said swiftly, changing the topic. "I have to get back to the Judgement Area, there's still a lot of work waiting for me…… and a lot of sinners to be punished."

And with that, he made to leave the room, but just as he was about to leave, Creus' voice spoke up from behind.

"Leithe. No matter that a holy knight may have their backs turned from the light and face into the darkness, they still walk under the light and not within the dark!"

Leithe paused at that.

"If not for your sacrifice of your chance to face the light, would Sprouting Leaf City have been so safe and full of light today? And yet, you regret this now? Leithe, are you telling me you regret sacrificing your own light in exchange for the people's bright lives?"

Leithe turned around and gazed at the Sun Knight standing in the dark, an expression of deep sadness on the latter's face. "Leithe, do you really regret losing your chance to stand in the light?"


'No matter that a holy knight may have their backs turned from the light and face into the darkness, they still walk under the light and not within the dark!'


Even though the cross of the God of Light was bathed in the light from the fading sun, it was the holy knight standing in the shadows of the room that had saved him.

If the person standing in the dark was the one who had saved him, then surely he could continue facing the darkness?


Leithe chuckled and said. "Creus, even if I were to fall into the dark, you'd just pull me back up, right?"

"Duh, we're best friends! So Leithe, help me teach that Earth a lesson! Beat up that bastard till he can't even stand!" Sun nodded definitely. "That'll teach him to go around flashing his new woman around me again!!!"

… … Who's saving who from the darkness again?


~The End~

  1. By being friend with Sun.
    Does Judge really think ha has time to worry about himself falling into darkness?

    PS thanks a lot for translation. :)

  2. Thanks for your hard work :) I enjoy LSK a lot, Thanks :)

  3. I haven't checked back in a couple days... Blasphemous, I know. Was madly sewing this:

    But now that I'm done, I'm semi alive once again =__=; Thanks for the translations, I loved the ending to the last side story, and this one as well. Scratch that, all the endings are hilarious xD

  4. Thaaaaaaank youuu for the translation!!!!! Ur awesome!!!!!
    hehehe...I love judge and Sun's relationship.
    Btw, who do u think reads this series more: guys or girls?

  5. I love you!!!
    Poor Judge has to torture people daily even if it's more of Sun's real personality... I'm glad, the blond is there to help, and distract him, from these matters!

    Thanks for the new side-story!

  6. thanks for the translation..^^ i love it so much

  7. Hahaha Sun is always the best lol

    And thanks for the translation!

  8. Pfffft. Good thing Sun and Judge have opposite jobs. Helps keep their own personalities in check from being overly kind or overly cruel. X'D Nice side-story. =)

  9. hahahaha (>v<)/ sun is just so.... and judge is so cute =3 also agree in that it's a good thing they applied for their jobs for if not maybe Creus would be a really scary merciless Judge and Leithe a so extremely kind and cute Sun XD

    btw tnxs 4 the translations!!

  10. thanks a lot for this chapter!

    sun'd do fine as a cruel and scary judge knight and judge'd be a loving sun knight.
    kinda sad they have to create an image opposite of their personality, but that counts for everyone.

    sun and judge have such a blanced relationship, they're pulling each other out of the darkness.

    anyway, can't wait for the main story to continue.

  11. praise be to the god of light that he has aloud his children be bathed in such light(translation:thanks for the translations always enjoy them:) )

  12. Thank you very much for the translations ^-^. I can't wait for the next chapter. Looking forward to it.

  13. i love it absolutely hilarious thank you for your hard work :D

  14. lealynn do you know the full names of all the knights? it's just that something is bothering me.... someone told me that Leithe is Lesus and Grisia is Gelixia, is it that that's their nickname or second name (or surname maybe?)

  15. @ Anon poster above mine:
    The other names you have are from bad translations. The ones in this blog are the official names as stated by the author Yu Wo.

  16. creus n leithe are so much better than gelixiya n lesus... the last names come from google translate lol...

  17. Koral is partly right. Most of the names I use are the official names from Yu Wo. As I go further along, however, I might have to tweak some of their names, as there are some sort of inside jokes about their name which might be lost in translation if I stick to the official names. But I will try as hard as possible not to change them if posible. :)

    Creus and Leithe were the original names given by Yu Wo, and I think they are MUCH better than whatever ones that are going around. I know one of the more popular ones is Grisia, but I can't help thinking of Greasy everytime I come across that name. Eww!

  18. thank you for this!!! ahhh i loooooove the relation-ship between Creus and Leithe!!

  19. I think Grisia is closer to the original chinese than Creus, but Creus flows much, much better. (It's also easier to say!)

  20. Thanks u so much for your translation

  21. Love this novel. Pls don't stop translating. Can't wait for volume 4 to be translated.
