She heard the door open, but Yu Shu remained sprawled on the chair, too lazy to move.

Two tall figures walked into the study, one wearing black and one wearing white. They were so striking that she could not ignore them.

The one wearing black respectfully said, “Mistress, as you surmised, something has happened. Your deductions are astounding. You were able to tell that something was wrong simply from seeing a live feed of the fire alarm going off at Jiang Ziya’s university.”

Yu Shu felt aggrieved as she looked at her two sons, as if there was nothing left to live for. Why the hell did I give birth to them—No! I haven’t given birth at all, b-but… Fine, this is close enough to “giving birth.”

“Why are you acting so strange?”

Hold Keeper swept his eyes up and down to check on her condition. She was not injured, and she already had a cup of coffee next to her. She had been using her computer. There’s nothing wrong!

Jiang Ziya struggled to break free, turning and immediately throwing a punch. However, the other person grabbed his hand, and he was unable to pull it back. He really was not the battle type.

“Jiang Ziya, it’s me,” the other person calmly said.

Jiang Ziya was stunned when he made out the face of the newcomer, and blurted, “House Keeper?”

House Keeper smiled faintly and said, “I am not alone.”

He gestured behind Jiang Ziya.

Jiang Ziya turned. A white figure with a compassionate expression stood among the university students collapsed across the ground.

“Hold Keeper?” Jiang Ziya was surprised.

Hold Keeper was wearing extravagant, white priest robes with a golden cross around his neck. He looked even more like a priest than the religious Liu Yishi, the kind that was high in rank, someone who was far from ordinary.

Kneeling down, Hold Keeper examined the university student with the worst condition among them. His entire neck had blackened, and he was unable to breathe, his whole face turning purple. It would most likely only take a few minutes for him to perish.

When that person saw Hold Keeper, it was like he had seen his savior. He began to thrash around again after his struggles from earlier died down due to his near suffocation.

Hold Keeper took the cross necklace off. With the cross in hand, he touched the other person’s neck and comforted him with his gentle and calm gaze as he shouted, “In the name of God, I command all filth and evil to depart at once, to return to the depths of the shadows and eternally atone for your sins!”

Whoa! Jiang Ziya couldn’t help but glance to the side at House Keeper and ask doubtfully, “Hold Keeper actually knows how to exorcise demons?”

Isn’t he a spirit himself? What’s up with spirits exorcising demons? I don’t get it at all!

Lu Yang ran with all his might toward the abandoned campus. People’s lives were in danger. His running was nearly fast enough to break the world record.

Soon, he reached the abandoned campus. He glanced toward his destination; there was only a single floor lit brightly in the dark building. Lu Yang counted as he ran. It was the eighth floor.

He rushed into the building. With each stride, Lu Yang was able to leap half a floor up, making it look like he was practically flying. He rushed straight to the staircase that connected the seventh floor to the eighth. A pool of black water blocked his path where the staircase turned.

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

Liu Yishi turned, wanting to rush downstairs to the school campus to save his son. Although there was nothing he could do about a fire, what father could leisurely eliminate demons over here when he clearly knew that his son was in danger?

However, the stairs were gone. The stairway had turned into a pool of water at some unknown point. Huge bubbles had formed in the deep and dark water, which appeared extremely thick, unlike normal, clear water.

“What’s going on?”

Hu Lican was rather calm. This was not the first time he had experienced something like getting trapped. The most recent occurrence was precisely that time when he and Lu Yang had been trapped together on the eighth floor of this place. Back then, there had even been an immobile corpse standing there! Although, they had later determined that it had actually been Jiang Ziya.

Illusions, Lies, Truth SS3: Inheriting Jiu Ge

Illusions, Side Stories

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


“Inheriting Jiu Ge”—translated by Minna (proofread by Trespasserby & Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

 

Canst thou be so willing to cast off ties and emotions to inherit the title of Dong Huang, the God of the Eastern Sky?

The tradition of Jiu Ge is passed down through nine broken lives.

This bond between the blade and its master, is it the person who seeks the sword or the sword that chases the person?

Two stories that should not exist,

Wouldst thou rather believe that they are illusions born from suffering, or actual events that have happened?

 

Since he was young, he would dream of that dynasty that shouldn’t have been, every night; the dazzling sight of the royal palace, the nymphs dancing in the sky, the soldiers, wearing golden and copper armor, guarding the huge city gate. Everything looked magnificent and dazzling. The real world looked dull in contrast.

After entering through the city gate, jade-green grass stretched wide and far, with small white down floating amidst a faint, almost imperceptible mist.

Nymphs clothed in feathers roamed about, picking flowers and fruits. Many people would look toward him and bow slightly, as if they were paying him respect. He would be startled each and every time.

He would roam everywhere. With each dream, he would arrive at a different place and see people of all sorts; sometimes they would be nymphs, while at other times they would be soldiers.

But the last scene of his dream would always be the same. Someone dressed in black who was leading the others would stand in front of him and ask him a question with a sorrowful expression.
