The Angel Falls Chapter 7: Shouldering Responsibility; Turning Around and Leaving—translated by purplezero (proofread by Faren & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

“First Wind, can you help me?”

Solitary Butterfly? What happened?

“NC wants me to hand Josh over… that felon from last time. I declined.”

Why decline? Lately, we’ve been working well with NC. There shouldn’t be any problems?

“I don’t think that things are that simple. Although Josh has a weird ability, his character is quite pure, like a child’s. He said that he’s been locked away in P29 since childhood. Finally, someone helped him escape. Only, he overindulged himself in so much fun that he forgot to meet up with that person.”

You want to use him to capture the person that helped him escape?

“Not just that. I also suspect that P29 is problematic. I investigated Josh’s case. He killed his parents and was sentenced to death, but because of his severe mental illness and propensity for violence, he was imprisoned in P29. However, after observing his behavior over the last couple of days, he doesn’t appear to be prone to violence at all!”

Solitary Butterfly, he knows how to control people. That’s too dangerous. Don’t have him stay at your home!

“You suspect that I’m being controlled? Don’t worry. He uses his voice to control people, which is why I wear ear plugs when I’m with him. All of our communications have been in writing.”

But…sigh, forget about it. I bet you won’t listen to me. It has always been that way. So, what is it that you want me to help you with?

“For the time being, I won’t be able to go out much. Help me take care of the northern district. Also, don’t tell Dark Sun about Josh. He’s too close to NC. I’m afraid that he’ll tell them. That’s all. Bye!”

Wait a bit… Hey, she actually hung up on me! Are you kidding? I’m busy too! The news of Ah Ye thinking of becoming a singer has leaked. Suddenly, all these advertising jobs have come flooding in. The amount of work has skyrocketed!

Previously, Dark Sun wanted me to help him attend to his district. Now, in place of him, Solitary Butterfly wants me to attend to her area. I… can only make a phone call.

Hello. Aren? Help me take care of the northern and western districts.

“…”

Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 2: Human Doll Contract Part Two

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 2: Confused; Confined by Part 3—The Lotus Dimension—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

Jiang Ziya kept his eyes wide, taking in Fu Jun’s every movement. The latter knelt down in front of the stone, delicately touching the blooming lotus seat.

The lotus flower was drawn in great detail—deep pink petals, tender green leaves, and delicate golden lines tracing the edges—making it appear rather fancy, but unfortunately, it seemed quite aged, with mottled spots in many locations.

First, Fu Jun touched the picture of the blooming lotus seat, and then he knocked on the stone. Jiang Ziya almost didn’t dare to blink his eyes. This was a rare chance to observe. He was afraid he would miss a single detail and still not understand how to enter a “barrier dimension” in the future—even though it was better not to have to enter those kinds of places.

After touching the lotus and the stone, there were still no changes. Fu Jun frowned. He pressed his index finger against his lips, forming a shushing gesture, and then slowly moved his finger away from his lips, pointing it at the stone. Jiang Ziya clearly saw the finger glow faintly again.

“In the name of the Lord of the East, Dong Jun, I command thee—open!”

Hearing such familiar words—the words that had come out of his phone to save Lu Yang and him last time had been about the same as these—made Jiang Ziya hold his breath. He almost didn’t dare to move, afraid to interrupt Fu Jun’s actions.

“The Lord of the East, Dong Jun, commands thee, open!”

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 1: The First Pet is a Swordsman

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 8: Shifu’s Legacy—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby)

Although Shooting Star had been an adventurer for a good long while, coming here to the Adventurers’ Guild’s battle arena was a first. In the past, he had his hands full just with making money to support himself. Even though he could stave off hunger by capturing forest animals, they just weren’t as tasty as the dishes prepared by the restaurants in the city.

Therefore, Shooting Star didn’t have any time to watch something like a duel, and he definitely wouldn’t waste his hard-earned money on placing a bet over who would win or lose.

As expected of the Adventurers’ Guild, whose influence spread throughout the Northern and Western Continents, even a small city had a battle arena that was nothing to scoff at. The arena was semicircular and very spacious. The spectator seats to the side were a full three stories high, and eighty percent of the seats were actually filled.

“Tang Wulie, that old rascal. It’s enough that he’s taking bets. He’s even letting in spectators!”

Shooting Star was so angry that his teeth smarted. Even Bones, an undead creature without a brain, could figure out that Tang Wulie was definitely making a killing from selling the tickets, yet Shooting Star had actually agreed to split the bet with him thirty-seventy. I hate him…

There was a circular stage in the middle of the arena, with four round pillars in the four corners of the stage. A large, round orb sat atop of each pillar. After Tang Wulie walked closer to the round pillars, he spoke with a few people whose clothes hinted that they might be mages. Then, they immediately set to work.

It didn’t take long for the orbs to begin emitting a soft light. A layer of faint light enveloped the stage. It was likely to be a protective dome added to prevent the audience from getting hurt.

“Brat, ready to die?”
