Chapter Six: Dangerous Thinking—translated by Trespasserby

It was a night where the moon was hidden behind black clouds. Most of the city was dark and silent except for the occasional dog’s bark and voices from somewhere that mixed among the lights and sounds from one or two cars whistling past.

A garbage truck was parked in an alley between two tall buildings. Garbage overflowed from it, and mice had torn into the bags. The ground was littered with trash tumbling in the wind, unacceptably dirty. Fortunately, few people frequented the alley. Both walls were lined with rundown metal doors that seemingly hadn’t been opened in ages.

In this seemingly coalesced darkness, one of the metal doors opened noiselessly, as if opened by a ghost. It seemed inconceivable that this dilapidated, rusted metal door didn’t make a single sound as it opened, even more silent than an automatic door.

It would have been enough to stir doubts in someone’s heart that maybe what had opened the door was one of the ghosts of the city?

But the next moment, a person wearing a red, tight-fitting shirt and a silver visor came out from behind the door. He was even carrying a large bag on his back. The outlines of firearms could be faintly seen through the lumps in the backpack.

This person clearly wasn’t a ghost, but his movements were so graceful and silent that he wasn’t too different from a spirit.

The man slowly closed the door. After he turned his head slightly to survey the surroundings, he began to think.

According to the Morse code, the rendezvous would be in three days. In that case, where could he go for now?

He had to find a place where he would not be found. So he wouldn’t be able to use his credit card to stay at a hotel. Even if he didn’t use his credit card, staying in a park wouldn’t work either because as long as it was public, he would definitely be found!

He really didn’t have a lot of choices, and he hadn’t gone to many places before. Apart from home and the Sun Alliance headquarters, he had only gone to school. Naturally, he could cross off the first two options so that left… I guess it’s just school?

Chapter Five: Disobeying Out of Love—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

“Ah Ye…”

Once Ri Xiang Yan had rushed home, he saw his beloved little brother kneeling by the side of the bed where Ezart was lying. Ezart’s eyes were shut tight, and his skin was abnormally flushed.

As soon as he took another step closer, Ri Xiang Ye was immediately alert. He sat up and turned to look at Ri Xiang Yan, rubbing the sleep from his eyes. He mournfully called out, “Gēge.”

“How is Ezart?” Ri Xiang Yan walked up and lovingly rubbed his little brother’s head.

“The doctor said Ezart’s condition is similar to if he had orally taken a stimulant.” Ri Xiang Ye turned to look at the unconscious Ezart, sighed, and continued to say, “The doctor also said that because he doesn’t know what Ezart ate, he doesn’t dare to recklessly prescribe anything. He was scared it would make things worse. They can only move onto a treatment after they analyze the liquid in the cup. Right now all we can do let Ezart sleep.”

“Then you shouldn’t worry, Ah Ye. Based on Gēge’s experience, if they don’t die on the spot, they usually won’t die.” Ri Xiang Ye glanced at the person on the bed and muttered, “Especially a guy like him. He’s so strong that he’s like an indestructible cockroach.”

“Really?” Ri Xiang Ye lifted his head, asking full of hope.

Chapter Four: Prison of Love—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Xuan; C/E edited by lucathia)

The four of them half escorted, half forced Ri Xiang Ye to go home. It wasn’t long after, that Ri Xiang Yan came home via the secret tunnel. As soon as he entered the living room, he found his little brother curled up on the sofa with his eyes red from crying. Elian had brought over a basin of clean water and was trying to wipe away the bloodstains that had run from Ri Xiang Ye’s knee down to his calf.

As soon as he saw Ah Ye’s tears and blood-streaked calf, Ri Xiang Yan was both heartbroken and furious. His heart ached because of Ah Ye’s tears, and he was furious because even under his protection, Ah Ye had suffered once again. No matter if it was the people who abducted An Te Qi or even his own careless self, they all deserved to die!


At this moment, Ri Xiang Ye realized his brother had returned. He suddenly stood up and threw himself into his older brother’s arms, crying as he said, “Gēge, An Te Qi-bàba. H-he’s been taken!”

Ri Xiang Yan nodded. He pulled out a handkerchief and tenderly wiped away his little brother’s tears as he soothed, “Ah Ye, don’t worry. An Te Qi will be back soon.”

“Gēge, I’m fine.” Ri Xiang Ye forcefully brushed away his tears. “Gēge, don’t worry about me. Hurry and save Bàba.”

“Relax. Bill is already searching.” Ri Xiang Yan frowned. It really wasn’t too difficult of a search. It was very likely that the people who had taken An Te Qi had been sent by Bai Lian Yue. He was the only one who could have possibly discovered An Te Qi’s existence during the past few modified human incidents.

Who would have thought that as soon as he had become a little soft-hearted toward Bai Lian Yue and wanted to go easy on him, a huge incident like this would happen? The Sun Emperor let out a cold chuckle. Had he become too soft recently? Soft to the point that people had forgotten how the Sun Emperor’s ruthless reputation had come about? Hehe…

Elian and the others felt their hair stand on end from watching the Sun Emperor icily laugh. They quickly and quietly told Ah Ye, “Ah Ye, go hug your brother so he quits laughing like that.”

“Oh?” Ri Xiang Ye didn’t quite understand. What’s wrong with Gēge’s laugh? He often laughs like that… But since everyone was saying to do it, Ri Xiang Ye still obediently went to hug his brother.

Just as expected, the hug really did divert Ri Xiang Yan’s attention. The sneer on his face instantly vanished as he gently smiled and rubbed his little brother’s head. He warmly said, “Don’t worry. I have informants everywhere in this city. No matter where they run, they won’t be able to hide from me. Just be good and wait at home for news, O.K.?”

After Ri Xiang Ye heard those words, he hesitantly asked in a small voice, “Gēge, I can help. Last time, I also…”

“Last time?” Ri Xiang Yan smiled brilliantly as he asked, “You mean the time when you had An Te Qi and Bill hide the fact that you ran off to exterminate the modified human laboratory from me, and I very nearly sent the two of them off to the afterlife?”

“…” Everyone observed a moment of silence for the two souls.

Ri Xiang Ye lowered his head, almost not daring to look his brother in the eye.

“Don’t worry, Ah Ye.” Ri Xiang Yan calmly said, “I’m not called the Sun Emperor for nothing. No matter who it is, I won’t let them off this time. They’ll be annihilated until there isn’t even a sliver of them left.”

“I don’t want people annihilated. I just want An Te Qi-bàba back…” Ri Xiang Ye replied softly.

“I’ll have Bill place An Te Qi’s rescue as the number one priority.”

Ri Xiang Ye could only nod, but he was still extremely worried. The way he saw it, Gēge was always trying to shoot Bàba to death. Their relationship never seemed to be very good, and it didn’t seem at all like Gēge would try very hard to save Bàba.

“Ah Ye, stay at home. I’ll send people to guard here.” Ri Xiang Yan put his hands on his little brother’s shoulders. He gravely said, “This time, you are not to go running around outside. I forbid you from using Dark Sun’s identity again to go kill people, and you absolutely are not to get hurt again. Do you understand?”

Even though he had just been thinking of sneaking out to save An Te Qi, under his older brother’s stare, Ri Xiang Ye had no choice but to nod and agree.

“I understand, Gēge.”

Chapter Three: Struggling Between Ruthlessness and Sincerity—translated by Trespasserby

Why haven’t Ezart and the others gone to warn Dark Sun yet?

Elian was silently worrying. Dark Sun had already signed one, maybe two hundred photos. Even someone more vigilant than him would have dropped their guard by now. Also, the Principal was really quite cunning. As soon as he noticed the situation in the plaza, he had immediately notified Elian and Death and had them hide and wait in the line to carry out their ambush.

Elian looked at his surroundings. He and Death weren’t the only ones around. Many Elite Combat Class students were lying in wait. They were all there to surround Dark Sun and keep him from escaping. It looked like the Principal had really invested a lot into this attempt.

“Please sign this for me!”

Death had reached the front of the line where Dark Sun was. Dark Sun remained expressionless as usual. Death was beaming as he made his request, and he handed the huge autograph board and pen he was holding to Dark Sun.

Death wants to attack Dark Sun while he’s giving his autograph?

Chapter Two: Simulation, Reality, Death—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by elisa & Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

Ri Xiang Yan held the black box of memories in his hands. His little brother Ah Ye, being the good child that he was, had gone off to sleep a long time ago. The office had been completely silent for some time when at last, there was the sound of a sigh.


“Yes, Sun Emperor.” Kyle was still waiting on the phone. He was never the one that pressed the button to end a call.

“What should I do?” Ri Xiang Yan held the sparkling crescent necklace. It dazzled before him, like the smile of his first love had.

“I do not know.” Kyle still did his duty and did not provide a reply. He understood very well that this was not a business matter that required his response, and that the Sun Emperor also did not really want him to answer. He was posing the question to himself.

“Ugh! This matter has gone on for so long already, and he’s also hated me for so long. He’s not going to simply forgive me just after hearing a stupid reason like that, right?” Ri Xiang Yan idly spun the crescent necklace around and around.

Kyle quietly waited on the other end of the call.

“As for the revenge thing, just punish him a little. Don’t bother with ousting him anymore.” Ri Xiang Yan listlessly said, “I owe him that much.”


Then Ri Xiang Yan pressed the button to end the call and stared at the crescent necklace in his hands for a long time. In the end, he placed it back into his box of mementoes and placed the cover of the box back on. But seeing the box whole again, he couldn’t help gazing fixedly at the black, finely detailed box again and lightly stroking the rubies on top.


Ri Xiang Yan closed his eyes and slowly leaned back into the chair. He murmured, “If māma hadn’t died or if you didn’t hate Dìdi, wouldn’t that have been great? We would have definitely been a happy family… Unfortunately, ‘what ifs’ have absolutely no meaning.”

He put away the box, sparing it no further attention.
