Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 445 – Even if you breathe quietly (4)

Choi Han looked into Cale’s frowning face and started to think about Raon.

‘If Raon was here!’

Raon could teleport him with magic or float him into the air.

‘There is still Cale-nim’s Sound of the Wind, but…’

Cale could make Choi Han float with his Sound of the Wind as well. However, the White Star had created a thick wind wall around the hall in order to make it difficult for Cale and Choi Han to escape.

‘The people in the hall will charge at us as we break through the White Star’s wind wall.’

Then there were bound to be people who got injured.
They were already recklessly charging at him.

“We must s, save him…….”


Choi Han shoved a knight holding his clothes away. However, he only shoved the knight’s hand, making the knight who was not injured only stagger.


The knight fell backward. However, nobody paid any attention.

“I will…save him……”

In fact, a young child who seemed to be a servant tried relentlessly to grab Choi Han’s clothes. Choi Han gently pushed the hand away.
These people would definitely charge at him as they tried to break through the wind wall.

‘They can’t even faint!’

Choi Han slowly started to frown. The White Star seemed to have realized this as Choi Han noticed the White Star smiling while looking at him.

“What’s wrong? Do you not see any way out? I guess it’s hard to teleport away because there’s nobody here who can use magic? Where might the young Dragon be?”

‘This was why he separated Raon from us.’

Choi Han realized the White Star was teasing him when he knew the situation and turned away. Red smoke surrounded the Illusionist who was creating symbols with her hands.

‘Why do I not see a medium?’

He did not see a staff like Gashan’s nor a talisman. Her hands were empty, but he was certain that she must have the medium somewhere on her body.
The Illusionist noticed Choi Han’s gaze and started to speak.

“What are you looking for so hard? Just stand still and let us catch you. Just get caught. That’s the small consideration I am giving you.”
“…Why should I stand still?”
“You can’t let your heart get hurt. Don’t you sirs cherish each and every life? How hurt would their families be if that child or any of those civilians died?”

The voice that was changing back and forth between respectful and disrespectful echoed in Choi Han’s ears like an instrument.

“The pain in their hearts will become your pain, won’t it? Isn’t that right, good little Mr. Choi Han?”


Choi Han noticed Bear King Sayeru’s light arrows pointed toward him.

“I’ll start to kill these people one by one if you resist. These people are not on our side, they’re just poor people who we tricked.”

Sayeru sneered toward Choi Han. His gaze was full of certainty that Choi Han would not be able to do anything.

‘That’s how Cale Henituse’s group has acted this whole time.’

They preferred to save one extra person even if it meant that they would let the enemy leader escape.
How stupid was that?


Choi Han put his sword back into the scabbard. Both of his hands were empty.

“As I expected.”

They truly were these types of people.
That was why they would not be able to stop Sayeru or the White Star. They were foolish and didn’t know that sacrifices were required for the greater good.

Sayeru could not help but laugh as he looked at Choi Han who had his head down and Cale who had a blank expression. He felt as if all the frustration in his mind was washing away.
It was at that moment.


A small item floated in the air before falling to the ground.

Tang, tang!

Something else fell and rolled on the ground.

Two badges shining in gold light became covered by the dirt on the floor.

Oooooong, oooooong.

The red light was stealthily roaming around the badge.

Sayeru noticed Choi Han slowly raise his head. He was smiling.

“I’m a good person-”

Choi Han moved both hands again.

Riiiiiiiiiip, riiiiiiiiiip!

He reached his hand toward the clothes of the people sticking to him.


Sayeru charged toward Choi Han the moment the Illusionist shouted. Choi Han opened his clenched fists.

Tang, tang.

Gold badges fell to the floor.

These were the badges with the territory’s crest that were on everyone’s new suits or new servant uniforms.
Choi Han violently pulled those badges away. He pulled the badges away from the people sticking to him and the ones grabbing onto his legs.


A person charging toward him stopped moving as if he was a puppet that lost its strings.

“Did you think I wouldn’t even notice that?”

He pulled the badge off the young servant’s clothes as well.

“You think I’m a good person? What nonsense.”
“You bastard!”

Sayeru instantly arrived in front of the laughing Choi Han. The corners of Choi Han’s lips twisted up as he looked toward Sayeru.

“Why are you personally charging toward me instead of shooting the light arrow when you said you were going to kill them?”

There was a badge on top of Choi Han’s palm.

“Looks like they aren’t listening to your orders without these badges.”
“Shut up!”

Sayeru’s fist that was covered in light headed for Choi Han’s heart.


The people around Sayeru and Choi Han were pushed back along with the explosive noise. The people who were still caught in the illusion continued to charge toward Choi Han.

Choi Han was at the center holding onto Sayeru’s fist with one hand.


His palm started to burn.

“Y, you!”

Sayeru tried to pull his fist out, but it was not easy. In fact, Choi Han’s hand pulled Sayeru’s fist toward him.
He then lifted the badge that was stealthily releasing a red smoke in front of Sayeru’s face.

“You can’t shoot the light arrow because you can’t destroy these badges. You’re using these to cast the illusion to control these people. Am I right?”
“You bastard!”

Sayeru’s other hand that was covered in light pushed Choi Han’s palm away.

Tang, tang.

The badge rolled on the ground again.


Sayeru’s body was then pushed back. He looked toward Choi Han who was pushing him back. Choi Han was already quickly removing the badges from the other people’s clothes.

“Stop him!”

Sayeru bit down on his lips and turned toward The White Star after hearing the Illusionist’s urgent shout. He then flinched. Cale Henituse who was fighting against the White Star… Sayeru made eye contact with Cale.
Cale slowly started to speak.

“I thought you had hidden something big.”
“…What did you say?”

Cale looked toward the White Star and the Illusionist before Sayeru could respond.

“Is this it? Hmm?”

He approached the White Star. He watched Choi Han remove the badges for a moment before he started to frown again and looked toward the White Star.

“Did you think I wouldn’t notice that they were under an illusion? Huh?”

He was frowning in disbelief.

“…You noticed the illusion?”

The Illusionist looked toward Cale in shock but Cale was only looking at the White Star.

“You said the following when I first fell into the banquet hall. ‘Cale Henituse, you look like a mess.’ is what you said.”

Cale had noticed something the moment he said that.

“I don’t mean to boast about my own name, but… I’m kind of famous.”

The ordinary citizens of the Caro Kingdom might not know of him, but even the knights, administrators, mages, and the lord of a corner territory like this were bound to hear about things going on throughout the kingdom.
This was especially true for the territory lord or the main administrator who would have heard the name and seen a picture of the person who had played a pivotal role in saving their kingdom.

But they didn’t know about him?

“The fact that nobody here recognized my name meant that they were not normal.”

It felt weird saying this himself, but…

“I’m a hero in the Caro Kingdom.”

There was no way that this bastard of a territory lord who had a famous cousin in the central politics of the kingdom would not know Cale’s name.

“Ha, and here I was thinking something big was going to happen.”

The moment the White Star and Cale looked only at each other…

“Is this it?”

Cale then disappeared from in front of the White Star.


The sound of the wind echoed inside the room.


The Illusionist felt someone grabbing the back of her neck. Her face was forced to turn. Cale who had almost teleported behind her was smiling.

“Remove the illusions unless you want to die. Got it?”

The Illusionist’s eyes were shaking.

“I’m not as good of a person as you think I am. Do you really think I am a Saint or a hero?”

It was best if they could prevent people from getting hurt or dying, but…
Cale did not want to save other people’s lives by sacrificing the lives of his people. That was why he knew he was selfish and cruel.
He was saying this because he knew that was the case.

“Get rid of the illusions, now.”


A violent gust of wind formed on Cale’s other palm. He looked toward Sayeru and the White Star as he spoke to the Illusionist.

“Unless you wish to die. I am not someone who threatens others. I’m someone who only speaks the truth.”

The Illusionist’s eyes were shaking. She was more sensitive to people’s emotions than most after making people see illusions for so long. That was why she was able to tell that Cale was being honest.

Her mouth slowly opened again.

“A, all of you, throw your badges away!”

The people running toward Choi Han stopped walking. They then pulled the badges off their clothes.

Tang. Tang.

The golden badges fell to the ground one by one.
The people surrounding Choi Han slowly fell to the ground and fainted once the badges fell to the ground.

Choi Han let out a sigh of relief.
However, Choi Han’s pupils soon started to shake.

“What the hell!”

The numerous golden badges on the ground…
The badges that fell from the people surrounding Choi Han seemed to be creating a circle with Choi Han in the center.

Oooooooong- ooooooong-

Red smoke instantly started to rise from the badges.
Cale moved his wind.


The Illusionist’s hands that were creating symbols stopped moving with a small explosion. The Illusionist smiled brightly toward Cale.

“What’s the point of grabbing my head? My hands were still moving. I already finished the signing.”


Cale immediately started to speak after seeing the red smoke start to rise.

“Choi Han, dodge!”

However, Choi Han could not move. He didn’t know why, but he was frozen stiff and could not move at all. Cale heard Choi Han’s shaking voice at that moment.

“Why, why did the darkness suddenly-!”

One chandelier had fallen, but the banquet hall was still bright. It was very bright. Cale’s face was crumpled in a frown as he jerked the Illusionist’s neck.

“What the hell did you do?”

Cale was able to look into the Illusionist’s eyes for the first time. He then realized his mistake.
The Illusionist was different than the White Star’s other subordinates Cale had met before. Cale could see the eyes of a wild beast that had yet to give up.
She leisurely whispered in Cale’s ear.

“Mr. Cale, you need to be on equal grounds if you want to make a deal with me. I created that equal grounds for you.”

He could see Choi Han who didn’t know what to do as he slowly became surrounded by the red smoke.


Cale tried to send his gust of wind toward the red smoke.

“Ah, Choi Han might get seriously injured if you attack.”

However, he could not act rashly after hearing the Illusionist’s comment. She looked toward Cale and joyfully continued to speak.

“Okay, I’ll threaten you as well. Let go of my neck if you don’t want to see Choi Han cut his own neck. Got it?”

He heard the White Star’s voice as well.

“…You asked if it was just this? Of course not.”

The White Star who was slowly observing Cale’s stiff expression started to speak with a more satisfied expression.
He had thoroughly prepared after being defeated multiple times.

“You think I only prepared the fake?”

Boom! Boom!

The ground started to shake.
This rumbling was similar to the rumbling Cale felt while he was in Young-en city.
No, it was stronger. It felt as if the ground was splitting.

“What the hell!”
“Why am I here?”
“Ugh, where is this place?”

The rumbling made some people wake up in confusion. The people looked around trying to locate the source of the rumbling and managed to find it.


The White Star’s wind wall slowly disappeared. Then they saw the fire snake that was heading over the walls of the Lord’s Castle.
But the fire snake soon stopped moving as well.
The people were not looking at the fire snake either.

“…M, my goodness-”


The ground shook as a large pillar of fire appeared on the west side of the Dubori territory.
The pillar of fire that was shooting through the ground did not seem like regular fire.

“…M, magma?”

The moment someone said the word that best described it…

Boom-, boom, boom!

The rumbling continued before large pillars of fire appeared in all four directions.

Cale watched the White Star open a western window and head toward the terrace.
The White Star raised his hand with an expression that seemed to say he didn’t care about Cale or Choi Han. Cale’s gaze was focused on those hands.


The fire sword was burning brighter than ever in the White Star’s hand.

‘…It’s different.’

This was different than the fire sword Cale had seen in the past. He could feel that the sword in front of him right now was significantly stronger than in the past.
This was probably the true fire sword.

“Cale Henituse, you should know about the Sword of Disasters after fighting against Syrem, right?”

The fake Dragon Slayer’s half-powered Sword of Disasters. How strong had it been?
Cale and Raon had struggled during the Henituse territory battle to defend against that sword. Raon’s shield had been broken and Cale had to push to his limits to block it.

“I added fire to that sword. Isn’t fire a symbol of disaster?”

The White Star who was the final Dragon Slayer had added his fire attribute ancient power into the Sword of Disasters.
The fire the ancient White Star had possessed was a disaster.

Fire was one of the easiest things for people to fear.

“I will bring forth a true fiery disaster.”

His sword pointed past the Dubori territory and into the Land of Death.

The Land of Death.
The only place among the Western continent’s Forbidden Regions that was said to be created by human hands.
The desert that became known as the Land of Death after the death of the final necromancer.
And the Dubori territory that was located next to that desert.

The White Star leisurely spoke as if he was dealing with a passing breeze.

“I will create a new reason for this land to be called a Forbidden Region.”

He would bring death to this land through a fiery disaster this time.

“So, what will you do? Cale Henituse, your young Dragon is not by your side. You cannot escape.”

The White Star was full of anticipation. He was looking forward to seeing how this man would react when he was left to fight alone, when he was at his limits.
He thoroughly observed Cale’s blank expression.

Cale mind was loud at that moment.

– That damn bastard we need to beat with a stick! It won’t be enough to curse that bastard until the moment he is gone from this world! We need to curse him to death! Aaaaaaaaaah!

It was a clear voice that was swearing so coarsely.

– I’m going to kill that bastard.

It was the voice of the Sky Eating Water.

      Uff Obmbre37 I’ve been seeing your comments for so long and just brushed it off as your opinion differing from mine. But you seriously just seem like a dumb person who doesn’t have the brain capacity to understand the twists and reveals of the story. You just jump at chance to “critique” the MC and the way the plot develops.
      Let me break down 2 things for you (which I doubt you’ll even see)
      1] The MC isn’t self centred or dense. He genuinely views himself as a trash and is trying his best to live up to it. But due to the situation he faced in his life on Earth on Kim Rok Soo, he isn’t able to just turn a blind eye towards the oncoming destruction and is begrudgingly getting involved to reduce CASUALTIES. He could have easily left everything to go as the original story but he didn’t do so, so that he can prevent many avoidable incidents. He also knows that people view him as a hero and self sacrificing person is embarrassed to admit it.

      2] This isn’t just two people playing mind games and setting bad guy good guy plot. It’s two characters trying to push the others into corner to reveal all their strengths and weaknesses to prepare for the huge finale battle of powers. It’s scoping out the enemy which they used to do subtly but now openly.

      To the author and translating team:
      Thank you for writing this and for the team for translating this story. Thank you for also those tid bits of explanation and hilarious jokes in between. It truly makes reading this more enjoyable.

      1. Nineiscute

        I agreed with u Zheltyy, I’ve been reading this person’s comment (ombre dude), this dude got no chills like if you don’t like the novel why are u still sticking around and even bother to write hate comments, ombre dude have a lot of time in his/her hands I see, I thought I could just ignore it but it’s getting kind of irritating.
        Like don’t read if u don’t find it interesting!

    2. dee

      srsly tf w u dude? are jealous w a fictional char or what? at this point its so fucking annoying. if u dont like him then stfu . no one cares for ur opinion,, u rlly want to go agaisnt the cale stans huh ? hes one of the best mc periodt, lol

    3. Ruru

      Why u stay if you don’t like, leave this novel dude… i am sure there more “iNteLligEnt” story for you out there, jeez just leave pls🙄 smh

    1. Dev0o7

      He can’t kill Cale. He is cursed for eternity as a dragon Slayer. He also wants to become god like og WS. He wants Cale to become a dragon Slayer.

      So, it’s obvious that he wants to pass the dragon slayer’s curse onto Cale (who looks like him and has same powers + Dominatig Aura {most useless power but the power of the first Dragon Slayer})

      He wants to enjoy becoming a God after passing the curse onto Cale

  1. Silence

    I think white star not killing cale and taking his earth power, or just killing off cale for that matter, is a MAJOR plothole here.

    1. hieularious

      its not a plothole at all, the white star needs cale to do smth for him (being the next dragon slayer or smth, dont remember exactly)

    2. cloudy bay

      I disagree. My theory is that WS he has a way to possess another’s body.

      WS mentioned that Cale was similar to him, but that’s not just talking about their appearance and bits of their personalities. Time is warped for both of them, Cale possesses one of the Dragon Slayer powers and Cale has numerous ancient powers, which is rare, plus he’s balanced.

      Though the “possession” hasn’t been confirmed yet, WS has said that he needs Cale to eat Raon’s heart in order for him to become a true Dragon Slayer so he can somehow use him? Brainwashing is an option, but that isn’t really reliable, point proven in this chapter with the Illusionist^

  2. Sabyl

    I really like how you all bullying this ombre dude every time he\she write hate comments… (☞ ͡ ͡° ͜ ʖ ͡ ͡°)☞

  3. Sidika

    I don’t think WS wants to commit to capturing or killing Cale right now. There’s not a whole lot of time until reinforcements show up, and just trying it would spark a battle equal in scale to the defense of Mama-Dragon’s castle. WS can’t escape if things go south either thanks to mana disturbance. So why the drama? Could be a distraction or an honest attempt to capture Choi Han (who theoretically should be easier to get) for info. If there were no reinforcements, WS thought Cale wouldn’t be able to communicate thanks to mana disturbance, WS could raise the scale of the fight and take his time whittling down their strength until he succeeded.

    //– That damn bastard we need to beat with a stick! It won’t be enough to curse that bastard until the moment he is gone from this world! We need to curse him to death! Aaaaaaaaaah!

    It was a clear voice that was swearing so coarsely.

    – I’m going to kill that bastard.//
    I agree🤚

  5. Wellshit1237

    Good for people who can’t understand why the ws doesn’t kill cale by the power of the earth is because he wants the same power that the other ws had, that’s why he took a long time to have all the other powers because he doesn’t need any power he can have, he wants specific powers (sorry fot the bad english)

  6. Chicken Noodle with Meatballs

    Sky Eating Water-sama, I like how you curse that bastard. Let’s curse him together.😬

    Indeed we need to curse him to death. I won’t satisfy even if he is gone from the world. I agree with you,100% agree. 😤😤😤

  7. Ron's lemon agriculturist and Raons apple pie merchandiser

    Here you go people my best selling lemon amd apple pie, its free. Lets just chill and ignore this toxic umbre who loosed a screw in his head.

    Now going back with the story. The white star doesnt really need cales earth powers even though he is not balanced, remember this guy is following the OG WS path and taking cales ancient power is not part of his plan. About passing the dragon slayer powers, The WS wanted a succesor and cale is the perfect person to be. There is still many questions tho on why he wanted a succesor if he could keep the powers cause he wont die. So let us chill, eat apple pies and drink lemon tea.

  8. Cale is precious

    “I’m not as good of a person as you think I am. Do you really think I am a Saint or a hero?”

    It was best if they could prevent people from getting hurt or dying, but…
    Cale did not want to save other people’s lives by sacrificing the lives of his people. That was why he knew he was selfish and cruel.
    He was saying this because he knew that was the case.

    actually I agree with Cale he is not totally a good person…. however who cares he’s precious in our eyes 🤣🤣❤️

  9. Spud

    So much plot convenience bullshit these last few chapters, our protagonists have become suddenly stupider, less cautious, and extremely slow to react.
    And out Antagonists have obtained seriously OP powers and abilities seemingly out of their ass, why is there a mana disturbance strong enough to hard-counter the strongest of dragons and why does it seemingly not have a cost to use it? What is this obvious mind-control bullshit that our mc’s threw themselves into and why is it so op? Why hasn’t our mc’s done anything yet? They have A LOT of options in combat yet they act like they can’t do anything and refuse to take the initiative and take action just letting the enemy do as they please?
    Since when did political influence matter when fighting the white star???
    If Cale really was serious with his threat to kill the Illusionist then why tf didn’t he go through with it when she started to surround and mind-control Choi-Han???

    This ‘oh no, our friend got mind-controlled’ cliche is really old and usually(like right now) breaks established rules/behavior to strong-arm in a ‘I know your in there somewhere’ trope fight for cheap and easy drama.
    Its stupid, every time the White Star shows up he’s got some new op bullshit that he should have by all means used earlier just so that he can put up a harder fight each time and let the author drag the story out more and more.

    1. SweetThorns

      I wouldn’t say it’s a plot convenience because we already new from the beginning that there was going to be an illusionist on the WS side, to me a plot convenience would be randomly putting an unrelated character to the story to create unnecessary drama, or for the growth of the main character randomly there for no reason. So no the illusionist was not a plot convenience because we already new from the beginning that at one point we would have collided with them in the story.
      Also reason why the WS is so OP is because if you paid attention to the story during the arc of wind island you would know that the ancient WS’s ancient powers were stronger than any other ancient powers during the ancient times including cales powers, that’s why it took 10 or I think 20 years to kill the ancient WS.
      Not to mention the fact that the reason Cale didn’t go through with the plan of killing the illusionist, was because he needed the illusionist to free the people from mind control so that Cho Han could fight properly however the illusionist unexpectedly captured Cho Han, Cale isn’t a Precognition, he can’t foresee future events and know the enemy’s ever move like i said he isn’t a Precognition he is just a human being trying to get rid of the WS so that he can live a peaceful life with his family,

    2. SweetThorns

      Also the reason the WS doesn’t use his OP bullshit at the start of the fight was because firstly he didn’t care about the Whatever it’s called empire he had no problem throwing it away not to mention he didn’t have anything there to protect so why waste energy on fighting something you don’t care about? While getting hurt in the process.
      Also he didn’t want to kill Cale because he wanted him to be his successor, and the obvious fact that the WS doesn’t have all the elements to keep his body balanced so he can’t go all out, and he his also a mage as well, remember at the beginning of the Whirl pool arc? It says that mages can’t have ancient powers because they are not compatible with each other.
      Secondly he was trying to estimate Cales groups strength the enemy isn’t stupid enough to charge toward Cale, and his team without knowing there estimated strength, you’d have to be a fucking idiot to charge toward your enemy without any knowledge about them, also it’s much more smarter to hide your strength/cards from your enemy, not showing your complete deck of cards is a huge advantage, like i said you’d have to be absolutely retarded enough to show all your powers toward your enemy.

  10. SweetThorns

    Spud if you actually read the story, and not skim through it you would actually understand what’s going on here instead of spouting bullshit out of your ass.

  11. SabCasual

    I didn’t think I’d really see a living testament to the quotation, “You haven’t really read the book if you haven’t comprehended it.”

    XD anyways, bless you all for being very justified in protecting the logic in the book. I swear I love this fandom.
