Dominion’s End Volume 3: Ice-Bound Splendor and Majesty

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 9: Truth, Part One—translated by Michimochi (proofread by Lala Su; C/E edited by lucathia)

With the motorcycle, tracking them down was a lot easier. Even though Jiang Xiaotian felt I was wishy washy, Thirteen didn’t seem to be a decisive guy either. His footprints revealed that his speed going forward was not that quick. This could also be because he was being dragged down by Asura and Maternibaby, who were both wounded.

I searched for hours. The beginning went pretty smoothly, but the later tracks were faint. Maternibaby had also stopped bleeding, becoming harder to track. It was going to be night soon. I had no choice but to slow down my motorcycle, in order to avoid skipping over any key clues. Luckily, because of this, I discovered a glow in the woods.

I hesitated before stopping the motorcycle. The aberrants of today shouldn’t be able to start a fire. Although they aren’t afraid of fire, they wouldn’t need to start a fire. Most of the time, a human would still be the one starting a fire, especially since it’s getting colder and colder. Even if it’s dangerous, they still have to have some fire, or else they are so cold that they can’t even sleep.

“It shouldn’t be them, right?” I turned to look at Jiang Xiaotian, who was sitting behind me.

“Hard to say. Thirteen seems to possess quite a few human characteristics still. It’s quite strange. So even if he is able to start a fire, it wouldn’t be that shocking.”

“What the hell? I dodged right, and you copied me! You did it on purpose!”

Shooting Star was already frustrated that he had to flee in the middle of his game, yet he just had to run into someone, too. He was so angry that he began shouting without even figuring out who it was.

That person rubbed their head, wincing from the pain, and called out, “Shooting Star, it’s Bai Saya!”

“You! Yes, you!”

Shooting Star had recognized him too. He jumped to Xiao Bai’s side and used his arms to grip Bai Saya’s thin neck. He loudly interrogated, “Say it! What did you eat?”

“I, what did I eat?” Bai Saya was confused.

“That’s it! You left me behind and went off with Dan to eat delicious food. Spit it out!”

Is it steak or roasted pig? The more he thought about it, the hungrier he got. Shooting Star’s arms gripped tighter and tighter.

Afterword

I was a bit squiddish… No, I mean, I was a bit skittish over whether or not I should open a drinks bar at the end—filled with shots through the heart.

Actually, the original plan was for it to be a super tragic ending, but in the end, it was only slightly sad, not even to the point of a tiny bit tragic. As expected, I was still too soft-hearted.

I actually consider this ending one that is on the happy side, but after my editor finished reading, she told me, “This ending is not bad. A bit of a BE (Bad Ending). It suits the tone of Human Doll Contract.”

Wait! I was always under the impression that this is an HE (Happy Ending)! So it’s actually a BE?

I was greatly shocked. I quickly explained to my editor that this is an HE! Why would you say it’s a BE?

“Because the last line says there won’t be a happily ever after…”

Even though the last line is that there won’t be a “happily ever after,” leave future events to the future. Right now, it’s still an HE!

[AD 2113]

“Solitary Butterfly!”

You said you trusted me! Then why don’t you believe me? Josh is a guinea pig. He is also someone to protect. We cannot turn him back in to P29!

“I trust you! Calm down and think about it. Dark Sun’s way of taking care of it is not wrong. He is just, just a little callous… but there is a reason for that!”

What reason?

“I don’t know.”

“I know it sounds unreasonable, but that child grew up under unusual circumstances, so don’t be too hard on him! I will talk to him. He won’t brush me off!”

That child? Is he young?

“… Pretty young. Dang it! Don’t dwell on that too much! I shouldn’t divulge his personal information.”

He insisted on taking Josh! Your talk made no difference!

“That was not… Dark Sun… that was DSII.”

What in the world are you talking about?

“I don’t know either! Anyway, Dark Sun is not wrong. That criminal has a very dangerous power! To allow him to roam free in Sunset City would cause huge problems!”

Heroes are supposed to save people, not give up on them because of this or that! If we can give up on Josh only because he might cause big trouble, is there anyone we would not give up on?

Chapter 5: Contract Between Human and Doll… Part 3—Human Doll Contract—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

After returning home, Jiang Ziya actually felt like it had been a lifetime. Out of the blue, he had discovered that everyone around him was problematic, from his neighbor, to his classmate, to his boss. He was mentally and physically exhausted and only wanted to collapse onto his bed and sleep, but he knew that coming home so late meant that he would have to face his sister and brother-in-law’s questions.

Contrary to his expectations, Jiang Qibing and Jiang Yu were actually already asleep. Only Jiang Jiang stood in the living room to welcome them back. Once she saw that the two of them had returned, she immediately nodded and turned to head to her room to sleep.

I disappeared, yet Sis and Jiěfu were still able to sleep peacefully? Jiang Ziya relaxed. It was evident that Jiang Jiang was behind it, which was really great. He truly didn’t want to come up with an excuse to deceive his sister and her husband.

Dragging his tired feet, Jiang Ziya slowly approached his own room, but he was stopped.

“Gēge…”
