This night race is too strong!

I felt myself losing heart. I still wanted to properly research the habits of these creatures. In this book, there were so many interesting creatures listed, and many of which could be matched with a corresponding non-human race. There must be a link between them!

But this link was one I could possibly never find in this lifetime.

What a waste of the opportunity of finding this book. If Charles were to know that this book caused my death, he would probably think that it was worth it, too?

Oh, that’s not right. If I died, then most likely Ezart would go down with me. That butler who values his young master so much would probably rather I continue to live on as long as I don’t drag Ezart to his death.

“Even at this point, you’re molesting the book?” Ezart looked at me in shock.

Book? Oh, you mean the one in my hand?

Book… Wait! If the ones in front of us truly are the night race!

This race is claimed to be the failure closest to perfection. The night race were absolutely strong and they had eternal life, but what came with it was a lack of reproductive abilities and a strong weakness to sunlight, in which even the slightest bit of exposure would turn them to ashes…

“Sunlight! We need sunlight!”

“… We’re underground.”

“Retreat!” Ezart roared loudly, “Everyone, go back!”

I had already expected that it would be a treacherous journey, so despite having to keep it confidential, I had still gathered twenty people for the exploration team. On top of that, they were equipped with heavy firepower, enough to attack a small city. However, it appeared that I was still too naive.

Originally, I had thought that even if this place were to still exist, any defenses that they had must have long since perished over the years. However, I’d forgotten that there must have been a major reason why this laboratory would have been destroyed in the first place.

Was it due to the night race in front of us?

Or perhaps, something even stronger?

I want to see—I want to see it all!

SPOILER WARNING FOR ECLIPSE HUNTER. While most of No Hero is light on spoilers for Eclipse Hunter, Volume 7 and on of No Hero will veer heavily into spoiler zone for the final volumes of Eclipse Hunter.

“What the heck are these!” Ezart roared, “I’ve seen plenty of zombies before, but what in the world are these?”

There was no way I could stop firing the machine gun in my hands. I was also extremely shocked by these enemies that had appeared from nowhere. They had such high agility and strength that if it weren’t for the strong firepower of our adventuring group, we would probably have been wiped out!

Most remarkable was the fact that they were not ugly in the least bit. They looked completely humanoid, with white skin, slender eyes, and perfect figures. Their movements were as elegant as those of dancers. Such beauty… Just like the night race recorded in “that book!”

“What exactly are you laughing about?” Ezart shot me a glare, but not once did he stop firing the machine gun. His combat abilities were extremely incredible—the large sum of money I’d spent to employ him was definitely not wasted.

This was unmistakably the right place, the place recorded in the book. The design on the cover was indeed a map, just simply too large in scale. If I had not specifically gone to measure and compare it, there was no way I could have located this place.

Thankfully, there are computers in this world. After writing a program, there is nothing in this world that cannot be measured.

Fortunately, I also have a good friend, a doctor with a keen sense of intuition, who managed to tell that this design was actually a map from the first glance.

There were many diagrams of genes in the book. If I’m guessing correctly, this place isn’t some ancient tomb, but a giant laboratory.

A biology laboratory!

“Hey!”

A black shadow loomed over me with a can. I took the can with a smile, thanking the other, “Thanks, Ezart.”

If Ri Xiang Ye knew that I was currently on an adventure with his best friend, would he immediately charge into the ancient tomb? If he really were to charge in, I guess adventuring together with him wouldn’t be too bad either?

“You have a high opinion of me, right?”

“What do you mean high opinion? Can you not talk as if I’m interested in you? I don’t lean that way!” The other person grumbled uneasily, and then admitted straightforwardly, “There’s a bunch of investors who insist on coming along on the expeditions, but very few of them actually have any combat abilities. Most of them are just a burden. You’re actually pretty strong, not too shabby!”

As expected of a battle manic. Even his standards for judging people are so simple.

“Oh yeah, Ah Shou, what exactly are you looking for?” asked Ezart as he scratched his head. “This ancient tomb looks like there’s nothing in it at all.”

“If I tell you that I actually don’t know either, will you beat me to death?” If I were hit by this person’s full strength, I would definitely be sent flying and splattered on the wall—that was not a speculation, but something that had already happened multiple times.

Ezart raised an eyebrow at that and replied, “What would I beat you up for? Whether you find it or not is none of my business. You’re paying me either way!”

“Do you really care about the money? These kinds of ‘adventures’ are so dangerous that if you slip up, you won’t be alive to spend the money.”

“I still got to make a living somehow!” Ezart snapped back.

I looked at him, with a ghost of a smile on my face.

“… And adventuring seemed interesting.”

The neighbors…

Jiang Ziya remembered how Yu Shu had told him to burn Xiao Xue, and his heart sank. He had indeed promised Yu Shu earlier, and had even assured Lu Yang that he would coax Xiao Xue out. However, as things stood, there was absolutely no way he could just sit around and watch Xiao Xue get burned to death!

Jiang Ziya patted Xiao Xue’s back and reassured her, “Don’t be scared. I’ll protect you. No one will be able to get to you.”

Xiao Xue abruptly raised her head, staring at Jiang Ziya in a daze.

“It’s just that I need to go to school in the daytime, so I won’t be able to take care of you then, and I can’t bring you to school either.” Jiang Ziya felt a little distressed. Though Jiang Yu was at home, it was hard to guarantee that Yu Shu wouldn’t pull a trick of some kind. For example, she could distract Jiang Yu herself, and have House Keeper sneak in and kill Xiao Xue.

Both of Xiao Xue’s eyes sparkled as she answered, “I can do that. I can go to school with Gēge.”

Huh? Jiang Ziya felt perplexed as he asked, “Then, what do we do when Sis can’t find you?”

“I can make a fake substitute and leave it at home.” Xiao Xue seemed extremely happy as she said, “With Jiang Jiang around, there won’t be any problems!”

That doesn’t sound too bad… Like hell!
