No Hero Volume 7: The End, the Beginning, Part One

Original Novel written by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Prologue—translated by Ever (C/E edited by lucathia)

I opened the curtains and the fiery sunlight outside shone in. For a vampire, its effect was no less than that of an arrow. Even as a fifth-generation vampire, pain still shot through my skin.

The time was only nearing five, yet the sun had already risen. Even at night, the air was stuffy and hot. This summer was unbelievably hot, the air conditioner nearly always on, or else the temperature inside could rise above thirty-eight degrees Celsius.

It was so hot that everyone’s appetite had gone down. There were even some leftovers these days. It seemed that I should make some more cold dishes, and every meal should have some refreshing appetizers. I wonder if the young master will like cold spicy jellyfish salad or plum-pickled radishes? He will probably like both? I can make them on alternating days…

“Charles.”

“Young Master.” I turned around in surprise to see that the young master was already standing in the living room. The young master’s footsteps have become lighter and lighter these days.

“Can you prepare a bottle of water for me?” The young master had already put on his workout clothes but did not go exercising immediately after saying goodbye like he always did. He scrunched up his brows and said, “While I’m out running, I usually pass by a park with a water fountain, but the fountain was broken yesterday, and the weather was so hot that I got super thirsty later on!”

No wonder the young master gulped down a lot of water when he came home yesterday. I had thought that the weather was simply too hot. My honorable father, my observation skills still need improving. I hope that I can be half as good as the young master in reading people’s “faces” in the future.

“Young Master, please wait for a moment.”

First Wind, Dark Sun just phoned me. The situation doesn’t seem good. The signal was severely distorted so I couldn’t make out what he was saying. Can you contact him?

“Hold on a sec!”

O.K.!

“Solitary Butterfly, he’s really gone!”

So you do know Dark Sun’s true identity?

“…”

Oh well, that’s not important. We should find Dark Sun first!

“Mhm! I’ll tell the police to look for places with bad signals. We’ll find him faster with more people.”

Wait, there’s another call. It’s from the police.

“Attention to all heroes, there are groups of armed criminals randomly attacking civilians in the business district. Their intentions are unknown.”

“Yue Gang?” First Wind said, “This is First Wind. We also have a problem. Dark Sun seems to be stuck in a place with almost no signal. Can you find out where he is?”

“… It must be the sewer! Definitely! I’ll send someone over. I’ll go over myself too!”

First Wind, I’ll go to the business district. You go look for Dark Sun with the police!

“No, I’ll go to the business district with you. One extra person looking for him won’t make a difference. Armed criminals roaming the business district doesn’t sound good. It feels a bit like the bank robbery last time. If we don’t know what their intentions are, it’s too dangerous for you to go alone. I’ll get Dragon Peace to come along!”

Aren’t you worried about Dark Sun?

“Of course I am! But someone’s with him. If they’re together, then there won’t be much of a problem.”

“Solitary Butterfly, Dark Sun finally finished repairing your legs.”

Finally? The spare ones really aren’t as powerful. Is your whip also finished?”

“Not only is it finished, it’s fantastic! Its energy efficiency increased greatly, its destructive power is greater and its battery life also increased significantly. The most unbelievable thing is that not only is it a whip, but it can also switch modes into a sword or dagger and can even fire bullets and be used as an energy gun! I don’t even know if it counts as a whip anymore, haha!”

Give me my legs first.

“Oh, oh! By the way, Dark Sun also wrote you an instruction manual.”

They’re my legs and yet I need to read an instruction manual he wrote?

“Of course! Look at my whip. If it weren’t for the instructions, I wouldn’t even know that there were so many added features!”

Oh well, just bring me everything there is!

“Hurry up, tell me what features were added to your legs.”

Hmm… Both thighs can be opened by pressing the silver decorative button. The left thigh contains grenades and the right leg has flash bangs; the knees can fire energy bullets; the sides of the calves and the toe tips all have extendable blades; the feet have wheels that can be extended when needed for gliding with a max gliding speed of sixty kilometers per hour.

“Wow, your legs are as good as cars now.”

“Are you satisfied with them?”

“Do you like them?”

“Just what do you think?”

I’m satisfied and I like them! I’m running out of time so I’ll be going first.

“Hehe!”

“You don’t have to talk about it if you don’t want to.”

You hypocrite! Didn’t you generously tell me your story just so that I would tell you mine in return?

“Ah, so you noticed?”

….

“Er, it’s fine if you don’t want to talk about it. I’m serious!”

We encountered a chase between cops and robbers on our wedding day, and all the cars had gotten caught up in an accident.

I was unconscious for a while. When I woke up, I found my legs stuck under a car that had toppled over. I was unable to move at all.

The first thing I saw was my groom, desperately trying to save me. He kept pushing on the car. His hands and body were covered in blood, and he looked as if he was on the verge of tears.

Seeing that I’d regained consciousness, he continued to tell me not to worry, that he would get me out of there and that we’d hold the wedding again on another day… Until he heard his younger sister’s scream.

The robbers had taken his sister hostage. When he rushed over to save her, he was shot in the head. He never woke again.

“… My condolences.”

After that incident, I continued to look for his sister.

“Did you find her?”

I did. She had ended up in a brothel and had already gone insane when I found her. I settled her down in a psych ward.

“…”

Oh yeah, since you told me where you got your money for your modification, I’ll also tell you where I got mine. I did the surgery with his insurance payment.

Do you know Dark Sun? It seems like he’s been a hero for a long time, too. Did you or did he become a hero first?

First Wind replied with an uncertain attitude, “Oh, Dark Sun? I’m not sure when he first started being a hero, since he keeps such a low profile. If it weren’t for the media relentlessly pursuing us heroes these days, then he might still be unknown to the world.”

Can he be trusted?

“Heh, I don’t even know him, so how am I supposed to answer you?”

Then, do you trust me?

“Hmm? Oh, of course.”

But you don’t know me either, and you neither know my true identity nor what I do for a living. How can you trust me?

“Don’t I know you?” First Wind laughed, “Do I really not know you just because we wear masks? Would you claim that you don’t know First Wind?”

…You’re really optimistic. You look very happy, unlike someone who has been through a lot of hardships.

“Really?” First Wind said as he laughed, “That might be because I have a younger brother that I need to raise, so I don’t have any time to dwell on sorrowful thoughts… Ah, after hearing so much about me, will you discover who I am? Haha.”

Even if I did discover your true identity, I won’t tell anyone about it. I swear.

“Well, I am not worried about that at all.”
