Illusions, Lies, Truth Side Story: Slay; Eliminate

“Okay. I know you don’t like hunting weird things, but there really isn’t a choice.

“Yeah, yeah. I know that we’re demon-hunting, evil-dissipating, Taoist priests, not that the average person can actually tell the difference between those things. If it’s their first time meeting one, being able to find a commissioner is already pretty good. On that note, demons and ghosts are actually the same kinds of illusory familiars.

“After we’re done, I’ll order the best oil to offer you, okay?”

It was approaching ten in the evening. A high school student was walking into a large, lightless building. He was muttering to himself nonstop. If people saw this scene, most would be tempted to comment, “Child, if you’re unwell, you should hurry and see a doctor.” Afterwards, they would kindly report it to the police.

If they saw this boy’s face, they might even add, “Such a pity. He grew to be this handsome but is a nutcase.”

The high school student had brown hair and green eyes. His facial features were relatively striking, a foreign face in line with current beauty standards. The pride of his entire life was receiving a hundred love letters during his third year of middle school, though rejecting those hundred girls nearly led to their belief that he was gay.

“Gay? The only one who is constantly by my side has always been Slay. He can’t take human form. At most, it can only be said that I have a fetish for objects, right?”

Lu Yang truly mourned that he either had to be a gay person or an objectophile. If it really were true, then he’d just admit it. But, it was really that he didn’t have the time to go out with girls.

[Note from Yu Wo’s blog entry]

Please note that this is a manhua script.

Thus, the details of a few demons, items, and scenes are conveyed with different methods.

In addition to that, some supplementary notes are kept whereas others are deleted. Because of this, reading it may not be as smooth as reading a regular, complete literary work.

Originally, I wasn’t planning to post this. But because the other story, Eliminate, serves as a continuation of this one, it will be difficult to read the other story without this one.

So there was no choice XD, I had to post it all. Hopefully, no one will have too hard a time reading it.

Afterword

I was a bit squiddish… No, I mean, I was a bit skittish over whether or not I should open a drinks bar at the end—filled with shots through the heart.

Actually, the original plan was for it to be a super tragic ending, but in the end, it was only slightly sad, not even to the point of a tiny bit tragic. As expected, I was still too soft-hearted.

I actually consider this ending one that is on the happy side, but after my editor finished reading, she told me, “This ending is not bad. A bit of a BE (Bad Ending). It suits the tone of Human Doll Contract.”

Wait! I was always under the impression that this is an HE (Happy Ending)! So it’s actually a BE?

I was greatly shocked. I quickly explained to my editor that this is an HE! Why would you say it’s a BE?

“Because the last line says there won’t be a happily ever after…”

Even though the last line is that there won’t be a “happily ever after,” leave future events to the future. Right now, it’s still an HE!

Chapter 5: Contract Between Human and Doll… Part 3—Human Doll Contract—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

After returning home, Jiang Ziya actually felt like it had been a lifetime. Out of the blue, he had discovered that everyone around him was problematic, from his neighbor, to his classmate, to his boss. He was mentally and physically exhausted and only wanted to collapse onto his bed and sleep, but he knew that coming home so late meant that he would have to face his sister and brother-in-law’s questions.

Contrary to his expectations, Jiang Qibing and Jiang Yu were actually already asleep. Only Jiang Jiang stood in the living room to welcome them back. Once she saw that the two of them had returned, she immediately nodded and turned to head to her room to sleep.

I disappeared, yet Sis and Jiěfu were still able to sleep peacefully? Jiang Ziya relaxed. It was evident that Jiang Jiang was behind it, which was really great. He truly didn’t want to come up with an excuse to deceive his sister and her husband.

Dragging his tired feet, Jiang Ziya slowly approached his own room, but he was stopped.

“Gēge…”
