“First Wind, can you help me?”

Solitary Butterfly? What happened?

“NC wants me to hand Josh over… that felon from last time. I declined.”

Why decline? Lately, we’ve been working well with NC. There shouldn’t be any problems?

“I don’t think that things are that simple. Although Josh has a weird ability, his character is quite pure, like a child’s. He said that he’s been locked away in P29 since childhood. Finally, someone helped him escape. Only, he overindulged himself in so much fun that he forgot to meet up with that person.”

You want to use him to capture the person that helped him escape?

“Not just that. I also suspect that P29 is problematic. I investigated Josh’s case. He killed his parents and was sentenced to death, but because of his severe mental illness and propensity for violence, he was imprisoned in P29. However, after observing his behavior over the last couple of days, he doesn’t appear to be prone to violence at all!”

Solitary Butterfly, he knows how to control people. That’s too dangerous. Don’t have him stay at your home!

“You suspect that I’m being controlled? Don’t worry. He uses his voice to control people, which is why I wear ear plugs when I’m with him. All of our communications have been in writing.”

But…sigh, forget about it. I bet you won’t listen to me. It has always been that way. So, what is it that you want me to help you with?

“For the time being, I won’t be able to go out much. Help me take care of the northern district. Also, don’t tell Dark Sun about Josh. He’s too close to NC. I’m afraid that he’ll tell them. That’s all. Bye!”

Wait a bit… Hey, she actually hung up on me! Are you kidding? I’m busy too! The news of Ah Ye thinking of becoming a singer has leaked. Suddenly, all these advertising jobs have come flooding in. The amount of work has skyrocketed!

Previously, Dark Sun wanted me to help him attend to his district. Now, in place of him, Solitary Butterfly wants me to attend to her area. I… can only make a phone call.

Hello. Aren? Help me take care of the northern and western districts.

“…”

“Gē, there’s a pretty girl outside looking for you!”

A pretty girl? Could it be Melody… no, Luo Lun would recognize Melody.

“Ji Luo Chu, you went with Ah Ye to the nightclub, right? You’d better tell me exactly what happened that day, not a single word less, unless you want to be fed to the fishes!”

Turns out it’s Ah Ye’s mistress. Fed to the fishes… you’re not going to open your mouth and eat me, right? Isn’t a merperson still a fish?

“Poseidynne-jiě, don’t be like this!” Briar was grasping at Poseidynne’s hand with all her might to the side.

“TELL. ME. Word. For. Word!”

Word for word? Wouldn’t it be enough to mention only the things relevant to Ah Ye? Ah Ye, take your mistress back to your family’s fish tank! I’m busy with work, and I need to be a hero. I don’t have time to raise fish!

Bang!

Luo Lun screamed, “Gē! All of the faucets and pipes in our house have exploded!”

…That day, Ah Ye suddenly wanted to go to a nightclub, so we went to a nightclub called Seaside… Oh, right! That shop’s owner seemed to know you.

Poseidynne furiously shouted, “You’re lying! How could Ah Ye want to go to a nightclub?”

He just wanted to go that day! He didn’t do much there. He just danced with Melody, then sang “Vampire.”

“You’re lying! What about that female drummer?”

What female drummer…

“Gē! The bathtub exploded too!”

My god, Ah Ye, take your family’s fish back, now!

“Whooooo! Singing is so much fun! Melody, can you accept singing jobs for me?”

…What? You want to be a singer on top of modeling?

Ah Ye, have you forgotten that you still have a role as a hero? You’d be stretching yourself too thin if you’re a singer too!

“Can’t you?” Ah Ye’s head drooped, and he looked terribly disappointed.

Well, yes, of course! You can always count on your double DSII and the amazing ability to only sleep two hours every day, so it’ll work… Ah!

Dammit. Why can’t I deny Ah Ye anything when he makes that face… I wouldn’t even complain if it’s a younger sister, but younger brothers being this cute is cheating!

I think I’m beginning to understand why the Sun Emperor heeds Ah Ye’s every whim.

Thank goodness Luo Lun isn’t this cute, or else I’d be wrapped around his finger. Bless… yet I feel a little like I’m missing out, dammit!

Was it impossible to stop Dark Sun even with the strength of three people combined?

The three of us really weren’t fighting seriously, or else we wouldn’t have lost so badly. But the question was… even if we really tried, would we have won?

I hoped that this question would never have an answer, but I couldn’t help remember what Xie Wei once said while facing us three heroes.

“There’s no doubt that powerful heroes are useful, but if those powerful heroes choose to stop being good people, they will become the most fearsome criminals! You heroes… frighten people!”

I didn’t believe I would fall from grace, and even if it actually happened, it would be okay. There were far too many opponents whom I could never defeat. Solitary Butterfly’s situation was similar to mine. Although Dragon Peace had unmatched strength as well as a hard-to-wound body—a truly difficult opponent to stop—Dark Sun could still stop him!

So when Xie Wei said that, I was not particularly worried. But today was the first time I realized: Dark Sun, when you fall from grace, will we be able to stop you? You are too…

Powerful!

As expected, Ah Ye is a great model. He’s a little too good even, and the work just never stops!

Melody, I’m begging you, stop accepting more work! Ah Ye only needs to sleep two hours every day, but if I work for twenty two hours every day, I’ll be in a coffin after five days!

Yet Melody pouted and complained, “That idiot Charles isn’t waking up, and the young master becomes sad as soon as he has spare time, so I can only keep accepting work!”

Sigh… Will Charles really wake up again?

“He will!” Melody said offhandedly, “He’s a pureborn vampire. Those are harder to kill than cockroaches!”

M-Melody, you’re a vampire too. Is it okay to describe them that way?

“I became a vampire. That’s completely different from being born as one!”

But I think you, the turned vampire, act more like a vampire than the one born as a vampire, whether in work or in race.

“What did you say?”

No, nothing.
