“Gē.”

With that one word from Ah Ye, I immediately felt that something was off. The good mood from finally receiving a call from him instantly vanished. With this tone and this hesitancy, there must be something wrong!

Could it be that he’s wounded again? That’s not right, if he received an injury, Ah Ye would definitely keep it from me rather than giving me a call. Something even more serious must have happened!

“Ah Ye, what happened? Who dared to touch you—”

“No! Nothing big happened, don’t panic…”

“You’re hiding things from me again! If nothing big happened, then why would you call me!”

“What do you mean if nothing big happened, I wouldn’t call you! Don’t I always call you at night?”

Hearing that, I snorted and said, “Recently you only call once in three days.”

Actually, it’s not even once in three days, but I should not say the truth. Otherwise Ah Ye will definitely take it for granted and follow the same duration of time before calling again. Honestly, it would be good if I could hear from him even once in five days now. If this continues… It’s all that butler’s fault! Isn’t he even capable of reminding Ah Ye to give a call?

“O-Once in three days isn’t infrequent…”

I threw the paperweight on the desk violently at Bai Lian Yue seated beside me. He caught it with one hand and even rolled his eyes at me. Then, I inquired calmly, “Ah Ye, tell Gēge what exactly happened?”

Now is not the time to debate over how many times he calls. It’s rare for Ah Ye to seek help from me, so if I continue steering the topic away, he’ll be even more unwilling to call me for help in the future.

“Gē… Luo Ye is still alive.”

I was unable to speak for a long time. Never would I have guessed that it was that kind of thing from the past. How could he still be alive? That year, our father had cast an inescapable net in the area. The only way of escaping that was if he was dead. How could he still be alive?

Moreover, Father has been dead for so many years, so why would he appear now? Why did he contact Ah Ye and not me? Is it possible that he knows the truth… No! Let’s not think about all these for now. Ah Ye is still waiting for me to speak. He definitely must be at a loss as to what to do. Ah Ye trusts others too easily, and would probably believe anyone with just a bit of coaxing.

To be able to survive under Father’s merciless pursuit, Luo Ye is definitely not an ordinary person.

I opened my mouth, finding my voice a little hoarse as I said, “That person is with you, isn’t he? Hand him over to me. I will deal with him.”

Once I finished speaking, I knew that I was in trouble. If I said something like that, Ah Ye would definitely refuse…

“No! If you dare to do that, I’m never going to care about you again!”

The line cut off. To think that Ah Ye actually hung up on my call… It sounds like he’s extremely angry and it seems like he won’t hand that person over. How could I be so careless and make the mistake of telling Ah Ye that I intended to “deal with” him? Things will be troublesome from now on…

“Damn it!”

“An Te Qi reported that he found something critical.”

That damn Bai Lian Yue just kept staring at me with a dubious expression on his face, not caring at all about what I was saying. It was as if he was still wondering if I really was the Sun Emperor or not.

“If you keep staring at me with that suspecting look, I’ll—”

Bai Lian Yue raised his chin. “You’ll what? Have Dark Sun kill me?”

Dark Sun… I roared in anger, “What are you blabbing about? Even if I wanted to kill you, I wouldn’t make Ah Ye do it. I’ll call the adjudication squad in here right now and have them completely dismember you!”

“So merciless yet so doting to Ah Ye. You really are Ah Yan.” Bai Lian Yue let out a sigh of relief.

“…” I pushed the telecommunications button on my desk, but another hand immediately covered it.

“Ah Yan…”

“It’s Sun Emperor!” I furiously glared at the other person. One of the two secretaries is impudent after staying for so long, while the other, though he obeys commands, is impolite because he lacks the ability to differentiate personal and professional matters. Neither of them is satisfactory!

Bai Lian Yue said in a grieved voice, “I simply wanted to ask what you wanted to eat for dinner.”

“You won’t be here by dinnertime. I’m going to have you go over to Ah Ye later.”

“Did you request for me to come here just to dispatch me to your younger brother’s side—” Bai Lian Yue immediately burst out. However, he realized his own mistake midway through his words. “No, Kyle is not by your side, so you wouldn’t send me out as well.”

Definitely disobedient. But, as expected of a secretary I had personally chosen, he was still on the more intelligent side. I ordered, “Of course. Go handle the matter with Ah Ye in the afternoon and return here for work at dawn.”

“You…” Bai Lian Yue’s expression fell as he said, “Never mind. You have always thought that secretaries do not need to sleep. Kyle has really spoiled you! What do you want me to do with Ah Ye?”

“P29’s criminals escaped. Ah Ye will not just let it go.” I looked at the secretary with a frown. “Kyle said P29 is an organization under your management. What did you do there?”

“I did not really do much. Most of it was research-related to see if any of those abilities could be replicated. However, there have not been any results yet. I have already cut the expenditure as much as possible, only continuing with a small amount of research and drills. The worthwhile people are brought out to be used, but there are not many of them. Nearly all of those people have issues. The majority of them truly are criminals. P29 is a failing business, yet it has to continue, hmph! Fortunately, I was able to gain quite a decent subsidy from the government to help break even by threatening to release all the criminals.”

I sneered. “Anyone with power would want to use it, thinking that they are absolutely unrivalled. How many people are as good and honest as my Ah Ye, who possesses the greatest strength and support yet has not become corrupted?”

“Yes, yes, yes, your Ah Ye is the most lovable, most powerful, and most compassionate—So my task is to prevent Ah Ye from hunting down those criminals?”

The Beginning NO.3: The Purest Criminal—translated by Taffygirl13 (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

“It seems to me that, while the young master was originally very concerned about his body having undergone a significant amount of modification, it began to worry him even more ever since he found out about the issue of his life expectancy.”

Upon hearing these words, I turned my head to glare at An Te Qi. If it weren’t for this overtalkative bastard, how would Ah Ye have found out about his life expectancy issue so early? Although Ah Ye had asked the question first, couldn’t this guy have just dodged the topic?

“Sun Emperor, if you found out that Dr. An Te Qi was acting half-heartedly toward the young master, what would you do?”

Kill him!

Kyle sighed, and I seemed to hear a mutter along the lines of “keeping company with a lord is like keeping company with a tiger.” Before I had the chance to order for the secretary to be dragged out for a beating, he spoke up once again. “But ever since you hired that butler, the young master appears to have been mentioning his own modifications less, as if he no longer minds as much.”

That was indeed the case. Why else would I be willing to put up with that damned vampire by Ah Ye’s side! Ah Ye causes enough trouble by himself. There’s no need for another one—For shame! What am I saying? Ah Ye is a lovable and sensible child, he would never cause…cause…

“Sun Emperor.” Kyle comforted, “Regardless of what thoughts regarding the young master you are having right now, dispel them! Overthinking will cause you to age prematurely.”

I narrowed my eyes dangerously and asked in suspicion, “You don’t normally try to intervene with Ah Ye’s matters. If it weren’t for my orders, you would avoid it if you could. Why are you suddenly bringing this up voluntarily today?”

Kyle honestly responded, “Because I feel like you want to do something after hearing Dr. An Te Qi’s report, Sun Emperor, and it makes me uneasy. For the sake of preventing an imminent catastrophe, I think intervening a bit is worth it.”

“What imminent catastrophe?! Anything I would want to do is for Ah Ye’s bene—what is that expression on your face right now!”

He lowered his head and quietly answered, “But Sun Emperor, the young master will be upset.”

“You don’t even know what I was planning on doing, yet you are confidently saying that he will be upset—And what is that face this time?!

“Kyle, you’re really becoming more impudent now. The fact that I placed you in an important position does not mean that you are necessary!” I stated frigidly, “Call Bai Lian Yue here. Starting from today, you are to go to another branch!”

Kyle not only remained fearless, he even seemed extremely worried as he replied, “You are transferring me, Sun Emperor? What exactly are you planning—”

I slammed my hand down on the table and roared, “I just said, get out this instant!”

Kyle sighed. “Understood.” He immediately began to collect his documents, laptop, and other items.

Before he walked out of the office, he turned around to look at me in concern to say, “Sun Emperor, before you do anything, please think about the sight of the young master crying.”

“…Scram!”

The Beginning NO.2: My Eve – translated by Raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

”Bill, aside from me, who do you think is the most important person to Ah Ye?”

“It’s Kyle.” The words came from Kyle with no hesitation.

“…”

The secretary gave a few awkward coughs, and then said, “I was just correcting you that my name is Kyle and not Bill. That was not an answer to your question.”

“Do you think that correcting me is more important than answering my question? Bill?”

Kyle immediately answered, “Undoubtedly, it is the butler—If you ignore Dr. An Te Qi.”

As expected, it is that vampire! I said spitefully, “So even the fiancée is not as important as the butler?”

“… You really are ignoring Dr. An Te Qi. He is just right here, though he is fast asleep on the sofa.”

“What did you say? Say it louder?”

That Kyle is really getting more and more audacious. Should I demote him… No, no matter how much I demote him, his job would still be the same, which is being a secretary at my side, right?

I should lower his salary—Damn, previously he seemed to have mentioned having earned some money from some stocks. I forgot how much it was, but I recall it was several times over his yearly bonus.

It’s probably better to just drag him out and give him a good beating. But if he took the chance to apply for sick leave, then these documents… Giving him a good scolding seems to be the way to go.

My face darkened as I growled, “Bill, you really have gotten rather auda—”

“Sun Emperor, there is a special reason as to why the young master would value the butler as thus.”

To think you even interrupted me—Hm? What reason does Ah Ye have?

Kyle seemed unruffled even now, and said, “I believe that the existence of the butler is relatively unique to the young master. For him, Charles Endelis is not just a butler, but also a ‘similar existence’ to himself. Both of them are stuck in the boundary between humans and non-humans—”

I interrupted him in a towering rage, “Ah Ye is human!”

“Yes! I was wrong. It was a momentary slip of the tongue.” Kyle admitted his mistake with no hesitation.

Unforgivable! This time, don’t even bother trying to give an excuse!

Kyle sincerely said, “Sun Emperor, I truly do not suspect the young master as such. The young master is the one who suspects himself. If you wish to punish me, you can demote me, suspend my salary, or beat me up. But please, finish listening to me.”

“… Speak.”
