GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 3: The End Begins

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


Chapter 3: Overthinking Companions—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“You don’t have to keep your promise. I don’t want you to play with me anymore!”

The elf’s eyes shot open. Blinding sunlight wove through the leaves of the trees, shining straight into his eyes, making it difficult for him to keep them open. It was only after he crawled up that he realized the sun was already high in the sky. How can it be so late already?

He naturally turned and accused, “Bai Saya, why didn’t you wake me up to prepare breakfast?”

However, there wasn’t a single person beside him, only forest and grass. This wasn’t a dense forest, and the trees weren’t all that tall either. It was mostly grass and shrubs. Among the rather empty forest floor, there was only a single white rabbit that paused after hearing the elf’s shout. It stared at him with red eyes before quickly hopping away.

Chapter 2: Easy-Going Father, Strict Mother—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Lala Su)

Originally, the speed at which Shooting Star and company advanced on the road, given their high exhaustion from searching for Bai Saya without sleep or rest, was only slightly faster than taking a stroll.

After getting ambushed by Braids, Bai Saya, who had originally been the most energetic among them, became a wounded patient. The team had also acquired the small avian Yaya, who had legs but didn’t know how to walk, and wings but didn’t know how to fly. Therefore, their speed decreased until it was no different from taking a stroll.

Shooting Star teased Yaya the entire way. Yaya would cry and run for her mama—meaning, Alan. Following that, it was Alan’s turn to “tease” Shooting Star; although the skies stretched far and wide without a cloud in sight during this entire period, lightning flashed nonstop.

“Wah—” Yaya began to wail again. Unfortunately, as she hadn’t been able to learn how to walk or fly yet, she could only keep squirming in Shooting Star’s arms, wanting to escape the devil’s grasp and return to her mama’s warm embrace.

“Shooting Star!” Alan’s face was furious, as if he were a mother whose child was getting bullied. He rushed over and snatched Yaya back. Then, he growled, “Don’t bully Yaya!”

Shooting Star boldly said, “I wasn’t bullying her. I was only pinching her cheeks!”

Alan glared at Shooting Star suspiciously. Then, he lowered his head to look. Yaya’s fair cheeks had two red fingerprints on them. He had really only pinched her cheeks—so hard that they were turning purple!

“Shooting Star!”

Ugh…

Why is it so bright? Is it daytime already? Why didn’t Bai Saya wake me up?

On a normal day, even before the skies would start to brighten, Bai Saya would already be up and training. After he finished his morning training, he would wake Alan up. Then, the two of them would split up to search for breakfast.

The elf opened his beautiful, slim eyes. The piercing sunlight immediately made him shut them again. A long time passed before he could open them once more. It was really too bright already. Not only that, the sun was directly above him. It seems to be noontime, but how is it possible for me to sleep all the way until noon?

He sat up quickly and his state of confusion lasted for a bit before he finally remembered what had happened.

They had been attacked by a plant manipulator. Unable to win, Shooting Star had wanted to use group teleportation so they could flee, but he had been stopped before he could finish reciting the incantation. Defeat had been right before their eyes when Bai Saya had woken up, screamed, and…

Self-destructed.

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 2: Elf, Nanny, Thunderous Anger

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


Extras—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Taffygirl13)

Afterword

The new edition has reached volume two. If you have read the old edition, you will know that they are visiting a certain kingdom next.

The progression of the plot has finally reached one of the parts that I felt was regretful. I didn’t develop this kingdom enough in the past, so I hope I can add more to their visit of this kingdom. I also want to show more of matters between a certain king and his subordinate.

I have built up Dan’s presence more in this volume and strengthened the mystery behind the Guild. I also felt I could have done better with the Guild, but I have to say that my entire depiction of the demon race was too undeveloped. The new edition will develop them more.

Of course, the elves could use more development, too.

All in all, what I regret the most about the old edition is my lack of development of each race and kingdom. I believe this is because my first series was written in first person. I kept feeling that the story must revolve around the protagonist, so whenever the main characters separated, I would very simply skim over the branching paths of the other characters.

But now that I think back on it, that wasn’t the right way to do it. Wasn’t choosing to tell this story in third person exactly because I can write about things that don’t have to do with the protagonist? Yet in the end, the story still completely revolved around the protagonist, wasting the biggest advantage of third person!

Chapter 10: The Stone of Original Sin Here to Attack—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Taffygirl13)

“A demon and a half demon. You think you can defeat me with that?” Braids squawked in a high pitch, “Do you all have any clue of the true power behind the Stones of Original Sin?!”

A demon and a half demon? They were taken aback, a bit confused by what Braids meant.

“No matter how amazing something is, it’d become rotten in the hands of an idiot like you!” Shooting Star shouted, drawing everyone’s attention. The long whip in his hands shot toward Braids as if it were alive.

“You fight him in close quarters. I’ll strike stealthily.” Shooting Star took this chance to whisper to Dan beside him.

Dan nodded. He was a steadfast, mage blade of the earth element. As for Shooting Star, he was obviously the agile type. This way of arrangement was indeed correct, so Dan did not suspect that Shooting Star was being lazy. In fact, in order to prevent Braids from sneakily readying some sort of trap with the grass, Dan actually dashed right at him.

Along the way, many weeds surged up to block his way, but Dan did not falter for even a single step. He let the grass strike at him, the battle aura around his body naturally taking care of such weak attacks.

However, against the personal swings of Braids’s thorny whip, Dan did not dare to gamble. He raised the magic sword in his hand, properly swinging his sword to block the attacks. Even though the whip’s attacks were irregular and ever changing, Dan’s defense was also solid. While the earth element did not have strong offensive power, its defensive power was unparalleled.
