“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.”

I took a sip of black coffee. It was strong and bitter, which made me frown subconsciously, but cleared my head up quite a bit.

The secretary sat beside me, either typing or directly voice messaging. Although paper wasn’t used much these days, there were still mounds of documents piled up on his desk; how extremely busy he was.

“Kyle, report today’s schedule—”

“Ri Xiang Yan!” Someone hurtled in like the wind with a frantic expression on his face. Having not tidied himself in who-knows-how-long, his appearance would instantly fit in with the homeless if he were tossed out onto the streets.

How dare he call my full name again. I expressionlessly said, “Bill, drag him out and kill him.”

As always, Kyle did not lift his head from the computer monitor. As he dealt with the screen full of messages, he said, “Just based on how he made your bad habit of calling my name wrong reappear after it had finally been corrected, he deserves to die. However, he has not yet finished teaching the young master’s butler. So for the sake of the young master, please wait a bit more.”

Ah Ye… I frowned and asked crossly, “Not yet still? How long has it been already?”

“Less than half a year,” that damned Kyle reminded.

Half a year was indeed too short. No mistakes were allowed with Ah Ye, so even a decade of learning would not be enough.

“Ri Xiang—Ah, no, no, Sun Emperor, just listen to me!” An Te Qi waved his hands around, so excited that he could fly, as if he did not feel the murderous intent around him grow stronger and heavier.

Why is this guy getting crazier each day? Yet I can’t replace him… I growled angrily, “I don’t want to listen to you!”

“It’s about Ah Ye!”

“… Go ahead.”

Prologue: Vampire Assassin—translated by Taffygirl13 (proofread by Trespasserby & Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

I quietly walked through the darkness without a sound, making it impossible for anyone to detect my presence. This was an innate ability of a vampire, a naturally-born race of the night—being able to tread silently while retreating under the cover of the dark.

However, I was not currently wearing an old-fashioned suit and cloak, the traditional clothing of a vampire. Compared to that type of complicated style of dress, black, skin-tight clothing was more appropriate for my current task.

The young master had once said I was very strong, but my strength was a different type compared to his or X’s. If they were warriors, then I was an assassin.

If this had been spoken by any other person, perhaps it would be purely words of flattery, or even a joke. However, the one who had stated this was the young master. Since he had already said it in such a way, I was more confident that I could be a successful assassin.

I have to be!
