Trash of the Count’s Family Part 2 Chapter 143: A miracle happened in the Demon Cult (6)

It felt as if he was holding onto the body of a dying person.

The Heavenly Demon subconsciously almost moved his hand away from Cale’s body. However, the moment he saw that Cale’s eyes were not closing despite coughing up so much blood… He carefully supported Cale’s body.

“Oh esteemed Heavenly Demon!”

He heard the Sage Demon’s voice and saw the Guards and others walking toward him.

The Heavenly Demon stomped his foot.


The ground started to shake.

The Heavenly Demon’s eyes turned toward the Sage Demon.

“Do not act rashly.”

The approaching Sage Demon and Guards stopped.

They realized from the shaking ground that the Heavenly Demon was released from the mind control of a living jiangshi but did not lose his strength.

They also got a clear look at young master Kim and figured out what they needed to do next.

“Everybody, please go back.”

The Sage Demon spoke to the gathered people.

“We will properly deliver the results at a later time, so I believe it would be best to not talk about what you saw today and wait cautiously.”

It was a bit rude but it could not be helped.

The Sage Demon did not stop young master Kim’s people from walking past him to the Heavenly Demon’s side. He knew they were not walking toward the Heavenly Demon but to young master Kim.

Furthermore, he got a clear look at young master Kim, whom he had not paid attention to at first because he was so crazy to know whether the Heavenly Demon was safe.

The Heavenly Demon’s complexion looked much better while young master Kim looked so terrible that it could not even be described with words.

‘How, my goodness-’

The Sage was at a loss for words.

“Human, human!”

The Sage Demon clenched his eyes shut after hearing the voice of the young divine beast behind his back. The emotions he got while looking at young master Kim after the joy from seeing that the Heavenly Demon, who was like his own son, survived made the hands of the person the Orthodox faction called a demon shake.

There was someone else whose hand was shaking.

It was Cale.

‘Damn it!

I knew it would be like this.’

– Ahem. Ahem.

The cheapskate let out some fake coughs without saying anything.

– I think I need to cough up some more blood! You’ll feel better after that! Let’s lessen the load!

The crybaby brightly spoke to him as if to cheer him on. He seemed excited that his hyung and noonas were awake and was overflowing with strength.

‘This is driving me nuts!’

Cale became annoyed.

His body wasn’t hurting. As the crybaby mentioned, vitality was flowing through his body the more he coughed up blood. He could feel his heart beating harder than ever before.

But who cared about that?

‘It’d be better if I fainted.’

He was not fainting.

His mind was completely clear.

– Ah, but the body does have to cough up a lot of blood so you might not be able to put any strength into your body!

He ignored the annoyingly bright voice of the crybaby.

But he couldn’t do anything.

He really had no strength in his body.

All Cale could do was watch as his people gathered around him and looked down at him through the bloody tears covering his view.

He couldn’t really see the looks on their faces because of the bloody tears.

However, it was pretty obvious.

“Human, no! Don’t faint! Snap out of it!”

‘I’m not going to faint.

My mind is also completely clear.

I just have no strength in my body after coughing up a bit of blood.’

“Young master-nim.”

He heard Ron’s vicious voice.

It was a bit scary.

He also became quite annoyed.

‘Why is it always like this?

It’s fine that I cough up blood, but can’t you make it so that I cough up blood more normally and elegantly?’

– Oh come on. Cale, how can coughing up blood look elegant?

Cale subconsciously started speaking with anger after hearing the useless words of the cheapskate who had been quiet until now.

“F, fu…cough.”

He could not speak properly because blood kept coming out.

But he still wanted to talk.

“I knew it, would be, like-”

However, those words just sounded like gurgling because his mouth was full of blood.

“…You knew it would be like this?”

However, the Heavenly Demon who was supporting him, understood what he was saying.

But he understood it differently from how Cale intended.

“…You proceeded with this test despite knowing you will cough up blood like this? Why didn’t you tell me about it in advance?”

The Heavenly Demon felt frustrated and found it difficult to control his emotions after seeing Cale’s still cold body coughing up more blood.

Anger and an apologetic look were visible on his once gruff face.

“I would have looked for another method if you told me! Why is it that you treat your own life so lightly?!”

‘No. No.’

Hey Heavenly Demon, I’m not saying I knew it would be like this for that reason!

I thought it was worth doing when I heard it the first time!

But in the middle, I realized that this was going to be a big issue and that it would end up like this!’

Cale had a lot of things he wanted to say, but… He just held it in.

He then closed his eyes out of frustration.

He found it annoying to talk in this kind of situation now.

“Human, no! Wake up! I’m going to destroy everything!”

‘I didn’t faint!’

Cale opened his eyes wide once again after feeling Raon’s chubby front paw touching his cheek.

Of course, he thought that he opened his eyes wide but they actually barely opened. This was because bloody tears were flowing out of his eyes.

‘This probably looks like a scene out of a horror movie.’

He couldn’t help but chuckle at the thought that he probably looked more grotesque than most ghosts or monsters.

However, the people looking at him scowled. This was especially true for the Heavenly Demon’s face that was no longer composed and showed a lot of emotions.

“You have enough consciousness to laugh in such a situation?”

“Yes, he seems to, Heavenly Demon-nim.”

He heard a calm response. The Heavenly Demon raised his head. The half-white haired man in young master Kim’s group had a cold smile on his face.

“We will escort the young master-nim, Heavenly Demon-nim.”

Ron motioned with his eyes and Choi Han and Beacrox received Cale from the Heavenly Demon and supported him.

Sui Khan was sighing and pushing at his temples while Choi Jung Soo was covering his face with a bamboo hat but he could not hide his roaring aura.


Raon’s dark blue eyes became invisible again as he hung onto Beacrox’s back to check on Cale.

“What should I do with the doctors waiting nearby?”

The Heavenly Demon calmly asked the departing Ron.

“We would be grateful if you could send them to our lodging, Heavenly Demon-nim.”

Ron answered without hesitation and bowed his head.

“Then we will head out first, Heavenly Demon-nim.”

Young master Kim’s group quickly departed.

Their movements were efficient yet relaxed, as if they were used to something like this.

This was especially true of Choi Han, who looked quite at peace while moving Cale.

But the urgency in their hearts could be felt at the speed they were moving.

Honestly speaking, the expressions on their faces and the looks in their eyes were enough to feel what they were feeling.


The Heavenly Demon could only scoff.

Kim Hae-il. That person did not faint until the end and maintained control of his consciousness.

This required extremely strong mental fortitude.

He placed a hand over his chest.

His heart was beating.

The small amount of rose gold aura that remained was slowly melting into his heart.

That was making his heart stronger.

Not only did young master Kim continue the Heavenly Demon’s treatment to the end despite knowing what would happen to himself…

He also left behind enough of his power to protect the Heavenly Demon’s heart after the treatment.


The Heavenly Demon looked around.

He could tell how intense it had been based on the broken foundation stones and the ground that was cracked and flipped over.

He then looked up.

The grey clouds that young master Kim’s rose gold thunderbolts brought were slowly leaving and the light of the sun shone down.

He closed his eyes for a moment from the sunlight shining in his eyes before opening them back.

The Heavenly Demon looked forward.

The people from the Orthodox faction and the Unorthodox faction, as well as the top executives of the Demon Cult were still standing there hesitantly, despite the Sage Demon telling them to leave.

“The test was successful.”

A voice full of majestic air reached everybody’s ears.

While the faces of the Demon Cult members lit up after hearing the voice that was full of deep and enormous internal ki, the faces of the people from the Orthodox faction and the Unorthodox faction stiffened as they could sense the level of the Heavenly Demon’s martial arts.

However, everybody’s expressions turned negative after hearing what he said next.

“At the same time, half of this test was a failure.”

They could tell what that failure was despite the Heavenly Demon not explaining.

Some of the people looked toward the direction that young master Kim left.

One of those people, the Cleave Saint, could see the Heavenly Demon approaching him.

“Tomorrow, I would like to chat. Would that be possible?”

The Cleave Saint did not say anything to the Heavenly Demon, who was trying to be respectful to him as one of the Orthodox faction’s Five Saints.

Elder Ho quickly stepped forward and responded since the Cleave Saint seemed to be blanking out.

“It is possible, sir.”

“Great. What about the Unorthodox faction?”

Sima Dan also answered without any hesitation.

“It is possible.”

“Then I will see you tomorrow.”

The Heavenly Demon left without any hesitation and said one last thing to them.

“Please remember that nothing can leave the walls of the Demon Cult right now.”

Any living creature leaving the Demon Cult would die. So, do not try to let others know about what happened today…

If you do not wish to die.

They all answered with silence to that warning filled with vicious intent.

“Please return to your lodgings now.”

The people of the Orthodox faction and the Unorthodox faction silently headed toward their lodging after hearing the Right Guard’s polite request.

They ended up splitting up as they were all staying in different lodgings, leading to only Elder Ho and the Cleave Saint walking together.

“Senior, are you okay?”

The Cleave Saint still had a blank look in his face as he walked after hearing Elder Ho’s cautious question. Elder Ho scratched his head and continued to speak.

“Isn’t young master Kim-nim truly amazing? How could he have such powers-”

“Yes, he is amazing.”

The Cleave Saint started speaking at that moment. Elder Ho stopped talking and the Cleave Saint continued to speak with a look of deep contemplation on his face.

“When was the last time I shed so much blood for someone else, for the greater good……”

He had a sentimental gaze in his eyes as if he was going through his past in his mind as he blankly stared into the air before speaking again.

“…I became full of arrogance and lost my way.”

He looked quite a bit older than he did yesterday.

However, his eyes slowly focused again and became clear.

“But now, I see the path once again.”

Elder Ho gulped as he watched the change in the Cleave Saint before flinching after hearing what the Cleave Saint said next.

“I met one of my life’s teachers today.”

Elder Ho nodded his head while looking at the old man who was smiling as if he had found hope once again.

“Umm, I do not know if our young master Kim-nim will accept you as a student, but… It sounds very good to keep him as your teacher in your heart and watch by his side.”


The Cleave Saint chuckled before his face turned stiff.

“…I am worried about his health.”

“I as well.”

Elder Ho looked sad as well.

While that was going on, Sima Dan and Sima Gong were heading toward their lodging with serious looks on their faces while listening to Toonka, Sima Jung, and Xia Mun chat with each other.

“Kahahaha! Do not worry! Young master Kim will rise once again!”

Toonka, who was one of young master Kim’s people, seemed to be living in the Unorthodox faction’s lodging.

“Mm. But I am still worried.”

Unlike the boisterously laughing Toonka, Sima Jung and Xia Mun could not stop worrying. This was especially true for Sima Jung, who anxiously worried about his boss.

“I’ve even seen an expert who was in Ki Deviation! Even that person did not cough up that much blood! I’ve never seen anybody, especially someone still living, coughing up blood like that in my whole life!”

The youngest of the siblings, Sima Gong, started speaking after seeing his brother being serious unlike his usual trashy self.

“Young master Kim-nim’s fiery thunderbolt was a power I have never seen before, but what happened afterward is not something that can be easily seen either.”

“It’s understandable.”

Toonka nodded his head.

“I am concerned about young master Kim as well!”

He shared his honest sentiments.

“However, young master Kim has been victorious in much worse fights and battles until now! He coughed up quite a lot of blood and fainted frequently each time. He sacrificed himself to save numerous people until now.”

The people of the Unorthodox faction perked their ears and focused after hearing a story about young master Kim that they did not know.

Toonka had no idea about this as he was looking up into the air.

He wanted to be by Cale’s side as well, but he would probably just be a hindrance as a lot of people came and went.

In addition, Cale Henituse had been through quite a bit of battlefields and survived through the crossroads of life and death many times even without having him by his side.

“Young master Kim is someone who becomes so strong that even the gods have to fear him if he has someone to protect.”

Sima Dan and Sima Gong looked at Toonka with serious looks on their faces after sensing that he was being quite serious unlike his usual self.

As for Xia Mun and Sima Jung, they seemed to already have an image in their mind as they looked dazed.

It was at that moment.

“That is why it is fun when I am by his side.”

Toonka smiled.

“There are many chances to fight when I stick right by that bastard! I’m just itching to go! Kahahahahah!”

Sima Dan and Sima Gong’s faces turned unsettled after seeing Toonka quickly turn from serious to jovial, but…

“He’s the best!”

“As I expected!”

Sima Jung and Xia Mun actually welcomed this.

Toonka peeked at them and thought about what happened yesterday.

Toonka, who almost lost his appetite for dinner after being extremely disappointed that he missed Choi Han and Choi Jung Soo’s spar, had been stealthily called to see Cale.

‘Toonka. You are close to the Unorthodox faction these days, right?’

‘That’s right! I fight with them every day!’

‘Good. Then you get close to the Unorthodox faction. But don’t get hurt. Ah, what the hell am I saying to you?’


‘Haaaaaaaa. Anyway, figure out what those bastards are doing.’

Although Cale frequently called Toonka a stupid bastard… He did not take Toonka lightly.

He started as a tribal warrior and rose to the position of Commander of the Whipper Kingdom.

That was not a position he could get to by fighting like an idiot.

Of course, Toonka did think simply and acted as he pleased, but…

“It should be okay for us to go see the boss later, right?”

“Of course! Kahahaha! I am young master Kim’s close friend so let’s go together!”

Toonka put his arm over Sima Jung’s shoulder while doing his best to listen to what Sima Dan and Sima Gong were saying to each other.

He then thought to himself.

‘Cale Henituse should be fine.

That punk would not die and leave that young Dragon behind.’

Cale Henituse was someone who could not look away from things or people that were weaker than him and needed protection.

* * *

Cale thought that his body was marvelous.

‘How can I be alive after coughing up so much blood?’

He was laying on the bed contemplating about it when the Heavenly Demon, who came to visit him in the middle of the night, spoke with an odd look on his face.

“Your complexion looks better than I expected.”

“Ah, of course. I’m completely fine.”

Cale smiled.

Beacrox also fed him some Central Plains-style steak and Raon stealthily brought him some cookies the crown prince had packed them from Roan, so he was full and happy.

“My condition is better than before I healed you.”

It was the truth.


The Heavenly Demon scoffed and calmly commented.

“Kim Hae-il. Your mind seems to not have fully recovered.”

The Heavenly Demon shook his head as if what Cale said was unbelievable.

Cale scowled.

  1. Atlexisa

    Another chapter wonderfully completed. This chapter in a certain light reflects what this season is about. Self-sacrifice to help another. Even the part where the giver feels better afterwards (depending on the viewpoints included!).
    Hope everyone has a good weekend.

  2. Amren

    A quantidade de vezes em que nosso Alberu foi citado está me preocupando, sem nenhuma red flag por favor autor🥺
    Raon envelhecerá mais rápido de tanta preocupação com seu humano😂
    Obrigada pelo capítulo tradutor-nim♥️♥️

  3. High Elder MK2000

    it’s really funny because I think despite Cale’s ability to remember everything at one glance, he may have forgotten that he’s got the root of immortality of the world tree

      1. High Elder MK2000

        When the the root dagger pierced Cale’s heart, it turned to dust and seeped right inside the wound. The old man (Vitality of the Heart) himself says this:

        =====From Chapter 760=====
        He heard an old man’s voice at that moment.

        It was the first time in a long while that the Vitality of the Heart had spoken since being absorbed into the shield.

        – …It looks like a new regeneration power will be born.

        Cale’s eyes became a bit wider.

        – Traces of an immortal are being gathered.


        This is also the reason why Cale was proactive during the end of the fight at the temple because his body got stronger, even says he can train his body now to get back his muscles during his height as Kim Rook Soo but nah he decided it was too much work ಠಿ⁠ヮ⁠ಠ

        1. Atlexisa

          I agree, but also disagree. He has trances of the Tree, not the whole root in his body. The new ‘power’ doesn’t have a voice of its own, but the old man was brought back. We do not know the details of the new power.

          I do not think the root sword was ever destroyed. It is most likely in a magic bag. The sword was made to attack life “rings” themselves, not for any other type of fighting.

  4. Mytoes_myknees

    ‘I just have no strength in my body after coughing up a bit of blood.’

    A bit?? Cale, you call that a BIT!?😅

  5. yab_ai

    Cale haven’t even gone full avatar mode on them and they’re already so impressed. Also I can’t help but wonder how the martial arts people would respond and think about the blood rock power

    Thank you for the translations!

    1. meh

      I can already imagine people recalling what toonka says about God’s being afraid while Cale mixes the two intimidation powers. Throw in some flying rock spears and tree tentacles and it’d be perfect

  6. Jesky777

    I read it twice…. i bet, i will reread it sometime in the future more. It was a tasteful reading experience. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. Julia Johanna

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I am forever grateful for the people who take care of this site and this story. And of course for the author-nim. I need a printed edition of this! 🤩

    Now, about this chapter. Awesome, as always. Of course Cale coughing up blood is not a surprise anymore for his people. 🤣 It will be marvelous for them when he will use his powers at full capacity and will not do this.

    I wonder if Cale won’t end up on the verge of death somehow and Raon will be forced to grow up as a dragon because of his powers in order to save Cale. Meanwhile, let’s wait for the chaos in the Central Plains to unfold. 🤣 I just love when Cale flips everything over.

  8. Mau

    Cale, 🤦 you probably still look like that of the traumatized victims of horror movies. You might FEEL okay bc of your powers. But outside you look like shit 😖. Your friends should be used to this but they are still worried. Do you think a new person would think differently?! 😩

    Thank you for the chapter!! ❤️🥰🎄🎄

  9. Romanove9

    E ele não desmaiou! Aaaeeeee!

    As Planícies Centrais vai ter mais um dia de vida shushsushshs, eu fico feliz que ele esteja “bem”, porque fico imaginando quão horrivel deve ser a visão de Cale vomitando sangue para o Raon.

    Aquela criança precisa de mais momentos felizes, não de ver o pai vomitando os bofes pra fora!

    Me pergunto o que danado o Demônio Celestial vai conversar com o povo… será que ele vai impedir que Cale cure os outros jiangchis vivos?

    Tantas teorias…

    Obrigada pela tradução e edição!!

  10. WeNeedCaleism

    Everybody beside Cale is so shrewd. Toonka even learned how to be one.

    It’s also so cute on how Toonka thinks that Cale won’t leave Raon bcs it’s true 🥰 Toonka gets it. Thanks for the new chap!

    1. Silver

      And I love the “Don’t get hurt” that Cale said to Toonka. He acts like he didn’t care about Toonka but is his “closest friend” after all hahaha

  11. Amethyst

    Lol the cheapskate just spat out my thoughts out loud right there and then😂

    I mean, how can someone who coughed up blood looks elegant?

    Thanks for the chappy!💜

    1. ruler

      wheeeeeze, cale apparently wants too (sorry lol the fanart of bloody cale has gotten to me), love how that’s what’s going through his mind while the others must be thinking: ‘He must be in so much pain! poor young master Kim-nim!’ etc etc.

  12. KNG

    Cale be like: *spilling a river of blood* “Damn, I wish I at least looked cool while I vomit blood…”
    Cale’s APs be like: “You want to look cool VOMITING??”
    Cale you crazy dude. I think you got too used to this whole “coughing blood” shtick… xD

  13. Smy

    Thank you for the chapter!! It’s the best Christmas present!

    The whole Cale team is now so trained and efficient in handling him coughing blood and fainting lol

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays!♡

  14. Hope

    Shut up. You look like a famelic rat (Roksoo’s body), pale, shivering, unable to stand on your own, coghing your lungs out and covered in your own blood. And you are laughing dude that is terrifying…
    Haa I should be used to this but still

    1. CherryBam

      No, I don’t think so. Well, technically yes at the same time.
      CJS was able to watch over KRS/CH as he worked for GoD (along with LSH), so he has seen CH cough up blood and push himself to the limits. I don’t remember what chapter it was in that said that, but it was somewhere in part 1.

      However, this is the first time he has seen KRS/CH cough up blood up close. I also remember LSH/SK commenting on how much harder it was to watch up close (I think during the 1st purification), which is another nod toward that.

  15. Nex

    Hi :)) it’s 8:00 pm in America right now I was wondering if you were going to still update today since it’s Christmas. If not it’s totally fine too (⁠・⁠∀⁠・⁠) happy holidays!!

  16. Dragon of the north

    Merry Christmas! 🎅🎄😊 But where is the next chapter? I’m kinda panicking here. 😱 I miss Cale and Raon underneath my christmas tree.😆

  17. Great and Mighty!

    [ ‘Why is it always like this?

    It’s fine that I cough up blood, but can’t you make it so that I cough up blood more normally and elegantly?’ ]


  18. Great and Mighty!

    Idk why, but somehow I got a little bit emotional, and suddenly started remember things.

    I suddenly miss seeing the ‘Young Noble Lady’s comment, and that one loyal reader who keep on commenting, you know, the one with a dog profile picture… They suddenly dissapeared without a word (sad—), and that one particular bad reader, who mentioned out about disliking missunderstanding, and was ‘scolded’ (poor kid lol) by some other readers (including me, should have not done that—), but when I tried to see his other comments, he was quite the nice kid actually, just that the way he shows negativity in his opinion is pretty much not that good… Well anyways, long story short, I just wanna say that I get kind of nostalgic, ‘m missing their comments :’)

    (and that one wind elemental comment lmao)

  19. B

    Are you talking about Gbporto??
    They are back btw.. i reread tcf chapters back and forth and find their new comments
    And ngl
    The comments back then really are fun to read.
    Im no english user so sometime the comments help me understand the story better
    I miss the old commenter too
    (And that one “yeet death god” comments too)

  20. CherryBam

    [“…You proceeded with this test despite knowing you will cough up blood like this? Why didn’t you tell me about it in advance?”
    The Heavenly Demon felt frustrated and found it difficult to control his emotions after seeing Cale’s still cold body coughing up more blood. Anger and an apologetic look were visible on his once gruff face.

    OK, but I love the HD for this. He’s worrying about Cale even though he hasn’t known him for long. HD was literally a ticking timebomb as a living jiangshi, but he was willing to find a way that didn’t require anyone else to get hurt, even if it meant stopping himself.
    He’s like Cale. Rude, blunt, incredibly competent, loyal followers, yet stupidly willing to sacrifice himself. No wonder why they get along well.
