“Ri Xiang Ye and Dark Sun. “The truth is, you have always been both of them, have you not? There is no difference between Ah Ye or Dark Sun. It has always been you!”

Highest master has issued a command: kill Charles Endelis.

“You took all the behavior that falls outside of your brother’s expectations, all the ideals that are unacceptable to society, and any characteristics that could be deemed ‘evil,’ and pushed them onto Dark Sun. This ‘Dark Sun’ persona is just a refuge for you to seek solace in!”

Highest master has issued a command: kill Charles Endelis!

“I have served you personally. No one is able to see this more clearly than me. When the criminals used hostages to threaten the heroes, you decided on killing to end the killing. When Josh’s ability became a threat, you decided to simply eliminate him to prevent any further trouble. When you made these and many other cold, calculated decisions, it was not as Dark Sun.”

Charles Endelis. Level of significance: 91.5%.

Highest master. Level of significance: 95%.

Following highest master’s command to kill Charles Endelis!

“Your coldness and innocence intertwine into an indivisible individual. How could you possibly separate them into two? They had never been two different people in the first place!”

Microchip, perform analysis: If the elimination target’s level of significance surpasses the highest master’s, what action should be adopted?

Unable to analyze.

Possibility of highest master changing?

Unable to analyze.

“Young Master, you are the one who does not want Dark Sun to vanish, because Dark Sun is your excuse for being unable to adapt to this world!”

If the elimination target’s level of significance surpasses the highest master, can the highest master’s command to kill be disobeyed?

…YES.

If Charles Endelis is more important than the highest master, could he do the reverse and command me to kill Gē—No! Cancel that inquiry! I won’t ask!

Do not answer!

“Charles Endelis! You must die!”

No one can be more important than Gēge—not even you, Charles!

The End NO.6: Family Head—translated by taffygirl13 (proofread by J Tao; C/E edited by lucathia)

“I forbid you from saving that vampire. You cannot have others do it either. He wanted to kill me! Don’t tell me your butler is more important than I am?”

Highest priority master has asked a question. Initiating action: Reply.

What kind of question is Gēge asking?!

“Gē, Charles is not more important than you.”

But why is Charles’ score so high? 91.5? Since when did it become that high? If he surpasses Gēge, then what would—No, impossible!

The purpose of Dark Sun’s existence is to protect Gēge. No one can be more important than him.

“Charles did not really want to kill you. I know it was your scheme from the beginning. What exactly do you want to—”

“Ah Ye, if I want you to kill Charles Endelis, what will you do?”

Highest priority master has issued a command. Initiating action: Obey.

Kill Charles Endelis—No! Charles cannot be killed.

“Gē, don’t say that! Don’t! I can’t control it anymore, Charles is—”

“Answer me!”

“…”

Highest priority master’s command received. Initiating action: Obey.

“I will follow your order and kill Charles Endelis.”

Initiating action: Kill. Target: Charles Endelis. Immediately taking effect.

“Ah Ye, wait a minute!”

“Yes, Gēge.” Turning, awaiting orders…

“You are not allowed to die. No matter what, your life is the most important.”

Command received: Own life takes precedence over assassination task.

“Yes, Master.”

The End NO.5: Having Feelings—translated by TaffyGirl13 (proofread by J Tao; C/E edited by lucathia)

Assessment: Highest priority master’s command and basic settings conflict. Shutting down and restarting.

Unidentified life form nearby. Status: Asleep. Not dangerous. Based on hair color and build, initial determination: Highest priority master… No! He’s, he’s….

Highest priority master is awake. Determining priority.

“Ah Ye?” Highest priority master’s tone determined to be uneasy. Amount of negative emotion: 70%.

“Master…”

Highest priority master’s negative emotions have instantly risen to over 90%. Determination: must ask status—No! There’s no need to ask at all! I called him by the wrong name! This isn’t some highest priority master. He… should be…

“Gēge.”

“Ah Ye! Is it really you, Ah Ye?”

Highest priority master’s emotions determined to be excited and joyous. Amount of positive emotion: 80%. Amount of negative emotion: Less than 50%. Response was correct.

“Ah Ye, Ah Ye, say it one more time.”

“Master Gēge.”

“One more time!”

“Gē…you’ve finally come.”

All of highest priority master’s data being loaded. Highest priority in command. Level of significance: 95%.

Not 100%, because there is always the unexpected. The system is set so that nothing can reach 100%. It doesn’t matter if it is only 95%, because no one will ever be more important than the highest priority master, than Gēge. This is enough.

“Sorry, I’m late. Ah Ye, from now on, you will never be hurt again. Gēge will protect you at all costs. No one will be able to harm you!”

“Mhm!”

I’m the same. Dark Sun will protect Gēge; Ah Ye will also protect Gēge. No one will be able to harm Gēge. Master Gēge will always be Ah Ye’s most important person!

The End NO.4: Merciless—translated by Trespasserby, Ever & Raylight (proofread by J Tao; C/E edited by lucathia)

Enemy: Lv. 1 in command, Ri Ji Yan, intends to harm the highest priority master. Eliminate!

Analysis of highest priority master’s condition: sorrow, rage, pain.

Lv. 2 in command has approached the highest priority master. Threat level low. No danger determined.

On standby.

“The higher-ups ordered a microchip installed in Ah Ye’s head to suppress his humanity, leaving behind only a robot that will obediently follow orders. Your little brother places your safety as the highest priority. Even if you command him to stop protecting you, it’d be useless.”

“I didn’t have a way to rescue him. All I could do was persuade those theorists that perhaps their employer would prefer to have a bodyguard with emotions. Also, if eliminating Dark Sun’s humanity negatively affected Dark Sun’s judgment, then what? So an alteration was made to the microchip, to include the option for retrieval in the settings…”

Change in the highest priority master’s mood. Analysis uncertain. Searching for additional examples to make a determination.

“So, give Dark Sun the command! Tell him to stop suppressing his humanity and emotions. Let him recall his memories. Ah Ye will remember you, his gēge, even though a brother like you took so long to get here!”

“Ah Ye.” The highest priority master spoke. “Stop suppressing your emotions. I don’t want to see you like this. You are my dìdi, not a robot bodyguard!”

Command received.

“Understood.”

Initiating action: Cancel emotion suppression setting. Processing…

Warning: Emotion suppression is classified as a core setting of the microchip and is unable to be changed. Unable to follow command.

The highest priority master has issued the command. Following the command has highest priority.

Unable to follow command. Following the command has highest priority. Unable to follow command. Following the command—changing core setting. Attempting to restart.

“Ah Ye!”

Dìdi, do you not recognize me? It’s Gēge.”

Awaiting orders.

“You must call him Dark Sun for him to work. That was the name we inputted. Of course, you can also change it. You only have to give the command and clearly say what his name will be changed to.”

“What the hell are you talking about? Dìdi? Ah Ye?”

“Dark Sun. Turn around and confirm your highest priority master.”

Order received.

Taking action: verify highest priority master.

“Confirming highest priority master. Appearance: Match. Iris recognition: Match. Preliminary confirmation of Master verified. If a second matching profile and iris is found, will proceed with DNA confirmation. Does Master wish to initiate the name changing sequence?”

“Change names? Change what name? Your name has never changed! You are not Dark Sun! You are ‘Ri Xiang Ye,’ my only dìdi!”

Interpreting: change of name ordered by highest priority master.

Taking action: initiating name changing sequence.

“Ri Xiang Ye. Name changing sequence completed. Dìdi also accepted as a nickname.”

Analyzing highest master: sad, bitter, coughed blood.

Taking action: inquire.

Taking action: send to hospital.

Taking…

Warning: someone intends to assassinate the highest master!
