Dominion’s End Volume 6: The Unknown Elite

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 8: Sudden Death From Above—translated by Miaka_Mei, lucathia & Elkin (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

I made sure to be as quiet as possible, silently making my way toward Shangguan Chenhong’s group. Fortunately, there was a mountain forest behind the base. I wouldn’t be easily detected when moving through the forest.

The enemy stopped in front of the back entrance before splitting into two groups. Shangguan Chenhong had four people standing by his side, while the rest spread out in a clear search for me.

Just how much do they underestimate my strength? Even if they didn’t go up the walls and see the frozen horned mice shish kebabs, shouldn’t they at least take me seriously for ambushing and killing fifty of their men?

Shangguan Chenhong probably thinks that I wasn’t alone in that night’s ambush. He even has a dozen fully armed elite soldiers under his command. Maybe that’s why he’s acting so carelessly… Hmm. If he didn’t encounter a tier three like me, perhaps it wouldn’t be careless of him. Having powerful firepower and energy guns, and a body strengthened from eating crystals, it’s more than enough to let him do whatever he wants in the early stages of the apocalypse.

At least, it’s sufficient enough until the arrival of the second Moment of Judgment.

After the second Judgment’s arrival, the aberrants’ strength increased. Although humans grew stronger, the aberrants gained a bigger leap in strength. The disparity between the strong and the weak became even larger. It was even more difficult for humans to survive.

After waking from a night of torture and agony, humans had to deal with even stronger aberrants. Supplies were getting scarce, and the winter was growing colder. Suicide rates peaked during the first few months after the third Moment of Judgment. The good-hearted ones would blow their head off while committing suicide, so as to avoid harming others after waking up and turning into an aberrant.

They killed themselves because all hope was gone, right?

Despite how harsh the apocalypse was, if there was some hope in staying alive, most humans would want to keep living. Not to mention my people, we’re definitely tough enough!

If people were given a little bit of hope…

I took a deep breath, not wanting to think about things so far into the future. Let’s deal with what’s right in front of us first. I tapped my chest with a finger, and let Xiaorong’s branches creep along the ground in that direction.

The enemy had more than ten people, and they were moving separately. If I wanted to fight it out, it wasn’t impossible to win as long as I played some tricks, but my aim was to take Shangguan Chenhong hostage and then “reason” with Zhu Yuanzhou. Killing more people would only deepen their grudge. That wouldn’t be good for anybody. We might as well use them to fight off the aberrants.

Let’s just have Xiaorong drag Shangguan Chenhong over. Once I’ve got him in my hands, the enemy would have no choice but to listen to us.

Chapter 3: Inheritance, Part 3—Lu Le—translated by lucathia (proofread by null)

After Lu Yang finished placing the incense, he walked down from the temple’s steps with a heavy heart and stared at the smoke beside the incense burner.

“What is it, darling? Did Laojun say something to you? Why do you look unhappy?”

Having just walked to the front hall, Liu Yishi saw that his son seemed off and immediately grew a bit worried. Could Laojun have given him some sort of hint? Lu Yang looks anxious, so it probably isn’t anything good.

“No, it’s Ziya.” Lu Yang lifted his head and said, “He seems spooked by yesterday’s case and says he has a headache, so he needs to rest for a few days.”

He was beginning to doubt whether it was a good or bad thing to drag Ziya into solving cases. Even though Jiang Ziya kept saying he wanted to help, he might be forcing himself? Slaying demons, which often also included getting mentally battered by all sorts of illusions, wasn’t something regular people would want to face.

But was the black shadow at the apartment really that scary?

Chapter 7: This Time, Seize Control! Part Two—translated by Miaka Mei & lucathia (proofread by Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

Ceng Yunqian suddenly exclaimed in a strangled voice, “Captain Wen, you’re wrong. Shuyu is Leader’s precious little brother. If he wishes to stay in the mansion, the JDT can protect the mansion, so we don’t need you to stand up for us!”

Wen Jianuo’s lips twitched but he didn’t speak. The electric current had shocked him speechless—it seemed like Shujun’s lightning really was a nemesis to the metal ability.

Chen Yanqing jumped up and continued the story, “Even the youngest sister had come over to help out. How could a grown man just stay inside the mansion? Plus, Captain Wen only said something like ‘stay inside and grow some grass.’ Aren’t you guys overreacting too much?”

He actually made it make sense! I’ve really gotta hand it to these guys. It’s a shame that their budding careers in acting and screenwriting got cut short by the apocalypse.

Junjun gasped, finally noticing that something was amiss. She nervously glanced at me a few times, looking so embarrassed that I, this èrgē, immediately forgave my mèimei.
