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!

Huff…Puff…

He kept running, panting until he was out of breath. However, he was ultimately unable to shake off the thing that was hot on his heels.

He was completely in the dark over how he had managed to attract the attention of such a thing, since all that he’d done was to head home from school like usual. The only difference would be that today, he was not with his classmate.

His classmate had said that he was visiting someone in the hospital, so his father had picked him up earlier.

On such a rare occasion in which he was left behind on his own, he could only head home by himself. However, it was too boring, so he had simply decided to take a shortcut.

This shortcut merely cut through an alley, saving him the trouble of walking around a huge bend. Moreover, the alley couldn’t be considered isolated, for when he walked through, he could still hear the sounds of chatter coming from other people’s homes. In the past, he’d walked along this path with his classmate several times, but his classmate disliked walking through this area a lot. Therefore, they rarely took the shortcut.

The moment he stepped into the alley this time, a strange feeling arose inside of him. However, a quick glance to the right and left proved that there was nothing unusual. The sky was still bright, and the alleyway was not dark. There simply didn’t seem like there was anything wrong…

After a moment’s hesitation, he walked further in.

In the beginning, he could still idly think about whether he should ask his mom if he could go over to his classmate’s home tomorrow. However, upon walking for several minutes blankly, he finally realized that something was wrong.

Illusions, Lies, Truth V2Prologue: Prologue

Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 1: Human Doll Contract Part Two

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


Prologue—translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

“From now on, you will be known as Hold Keeper and will be House Keeper’s little brother. You got that?”

Anyways, I was lying with my eyes open.

The golden-haired man standing in front of me obviously had blue eyes, while House Keeper was black-haired with green eyes. No matter how you looked at them, be it horizontally or vertically, these two looked like the least similar brothers in history! The only point they had in common was probably the fact that they both wore strangely formal clothing.

House Keeper was decked out in a dress shirt, bow tie, and vest.

As for the golden-haired fellow, he had fussed over his choices when selecting clothes to buy and had insisted on buying these gorgeous white, priest robes. Although the clothes were transformed from doll clothes, they were still so pricey that it made my heart hurt!

Nowadays, even dolls had it better than humans.

Poison

The butler placed a jug of coffee on the table. He was just about to call Yu Shu over when he heard a scream from behind.

“What the heck is this? It’s so bitter! It tastes horrible! Are you brewing poison here?”

The golden haired man was so affected by the bitterness that his face scrunched up. Out of disgust, he pushed the coffee jug far away from him.

Faced with such a situation, the butler retained his smile. He grabbed the sugar jar and dumped all of the sugar into the jug of coffee. There was so much sugar that it couldn’t even completely dissolve. He gently said, “You were in too much of a hurry. I had not completed the last step. Try it again. It will definitely taste good now.”

The golden haired man felt that something was not quite right. He narrowed his eyes and asked warily, “Will it really taste good?”

“Of course.” The butler smiled a trustworthy smile.

Half in disbelief, the golden haired man grabbed the coffee jug back.

After a single sip, his eyes widened. At this, the butler’s smile grew brighter.

“So good!”

“…”

The golden haired man relaxed. He took several more sips. Seeing that the butler’s smile was somewhat frozen, he hurriedly said, “It was my misunderstanding! This tastes really good! Brew it for me again in the future!”

“…As long as you like it.”

Skin Whitening Bath

Yu Shu let out a blood curdling shriek.

“Ah! Who added all this unnecessary stuff to the butler’s bath of blood!”

The golden haired man stuck his head in with an expression that said, “You don’t need to thank me.”

“Isn’t he going to bathe? I added my special skin whitening formula to it. I guarantee you that after he bathes, his skin will become flawlessly white and soft!”

Yu Shu clobbered him on the head. “Idiot! That blood is so that he can heal. What’s with your skin whitening formula! This isn’t a milk bath! Bastard, do you know how much that tub of blood cost me? Now it’s useless! Bastard, you jump in and stay there for three hours. Don’t come out until you become flawlessly white!”
