Dominion’s End V2C8: The Many Tales of the Town

Dominion’s End Volume 2: Aberrant City

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 8: The Many Tales of the Town—translated by Elkin (proofread by Arcedemius & EvlNabiki; C/E edited by lucathia)

As I drove, I kept turning to look at the passenger seat. A three year-old kid was wearing a seat belt, head slumped to one side in slumber and lips in a slight pout. He was super adorable. It was hard to believe that this was Dàgē, the Dàgē who had become the Ice Emperor!

Enough! Even though on the inside, I was a thirty five year-old woman who had never had kids before, it was no excuse to gawk at the child all the time. I needed to find a map, not play around with children!

Jin Feng had given me a map of Zhongguan City and the surrounding suburbs, but what I needed was a map of a wider region. Otherwise, if I could drive to Luo’an City just by knowing that it was in the east, I’d start suspecting whether I was actually a GPS instead.

Originally, Dàgē had probably left some maps behind. The basement hadn’t been completely empty. There had been a few boxes left there, with supplies probably meant for me. Unfortunately, the ice tornado had been brutal and had wiped the whole house off the map, to say nothing of what it could do to a few boxes. There wasn’t even a speck of dust left of them.

So my current mission is to locate a map and food. I glanced again at Xiaotian. And hunt for crystals to feed the child, too.

I’d already reached the edge of the map, so I didn’t know which road to take anymore. My only option was to continue heading east. However, this was risky, not to mention the skies were darkening. We were better off looking for somewhere to stay the night.

Poison

The butler placed a jug of coffee on the table. He was just about to call Yu Shu over when he heard a scream from behind.

“What the heck is this? It’s so bitter! It tastes horrible! Are you brewing poison here?”

The golden haired man was so affected by the bitterness that his face scrunched up. Out of disgust, he pushed the coffee jug far away from him.

Faced with such a situation, the butler retained his smile. He grabbed the sugar jar and dumped all of the sugar into the jug of coffee. There was so much sugar that it couldn’t even completely dissolve. He gently said, “You were in too much of a hurry. I had not completed the last step. Try it again. It will definitely taste good now.”

The golden haired man felt that something was not quite right. He narrowed his eyes and asked warily, “Will it really taste good?”

“Of course.” The butler smiled a trustworthy smile.

Half in disbelief, the golden haired man grabbed the coffee jug back.

After a single sip, his eyes widened. At this, the butler’s smile grew brighter.

“So good!”

“…”

The golden haired man relaxed. He took several more sips. Seeing that the butler’s smile was somewhat frozen, he hurriedly said, “It was my misunderstanding! This tastes really good! Brew it for me again in the future!”

“…As long as you like it.”

Skin Whitening Bath

Yu Shu let out a blood curdling shriek.

“Ah! Who added all this unnecessary stuff to the butler’s bath of blood!”

The golden haired man stuck his head in with an expression that said, “You don’t need to thank me.”

“Isn’t he going to bathe? I added my special skin whitening formula to it. I guarantee you that after he bathes, his skin will become flawlessly white and soft!”

Yu Shu clobbered him on the head. “Idiot! That blood is so that he can heal. What’s with your skin whitening formula! This isn’t a milk bath! Bastard, do you know how much that tub of blood cost me? Now it’s useless! Bastard, you jump in and stay there for three hours. Don’t come out until you become flawlessly white!”

No Hero Side Stories 3: Volume Four Draft

No Hero Side Story: Volume Four Draft

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


Volume Four Draft—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

[From Yu Wo’s 2010-09-16 Blog Post: http://blog.xuite.net/kim1984429/yuwo/121312848]

When I first started to write the beginning of Volume 4, I wrote until I got stuck, so I made a drastic cut of twelve thousand words and started all over…

Wouldn’t putting aside this discarded draft seem pointless? I might as well post it!

(I also asked everyone on Plurk first and played a game where they had to answer questions for this prize. XDDDD It was really fun!!!)

But this discarded draft really has no beginning or end. The plot was completely unable to converge, and it isn’t in accord with the later Volume 4 plotline. *Looks into the distance*

There are also some places that seem to be unfinished. *Is beaten*

In short, I still posted it in the hopes that it can satisfy everyone’s hunger a little. But please don’t consider it part of the official book because this is a discarded draft~~

GOD –The Beginning of the End– Volume 1: The First Pet is a Swordsman

Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)


Chapter 1: The Cunning Boy VS the Righteous Swordsman—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & Faren; C/E edited by raylight)

It was a scorching summer day, the sun hung high in the sky, and the recent temperature was frighteningly unbearable. With this kind of weather, even gnomes, creatures that were dirty but highly adaptable to all kinds of environments, would rather starve than come out to hunt. Slimes, mucus type creatures that could be seen everywhere, had also completely vanished from the roads. Only under the cool shadows of trees could a few wiggling mucus entities be found. The temperature was so high that even the slimes had melted.

Furthermore, the sunlight was so strong that you simply couldn’t keep your eyes open. The high temperature made even the dirt roads look deformed, and the smell in the air could only be described as “stifling hot.” All of this would make any traveler feel unwell, yet there just had to be someone who seemed to think walking along this path wasn’t difficult enough. That someone just had to add off-key singing. The low tones were as jarring as having rocks banged against the ground, while the high tones were akin to having nails scraping across glass. No one would feel the least bit comfortable hearing that.

That person was leisurely reclining on a thick branch of a tree by the side of the road. He had one leg propped on the other in a brash fashion and his arms behind his head. His position looked very unstable, as if he were in danger of falling at any moment, but anyone who heard the completely off the rails singing coming from his mouth would start praying, “Please fall down already!”

“One ugly pig, another ugly pig, a third ugly pig. Shooting Star has seen so many ugly pigs…”

The frightening singing suddenly stopped, and the guy who called himself Shooting Star shifted his body. He was a boy who looked to be around fifteen to sixteen years old. A huge smile abruptly appeared on his goose-egg shaped face, and an extraordinary sparkle flashed across his large, round eyes that could only be described as cute. He had found his prey. All of these signs indicated—a certain someone, or a certain unidentified creature, was about to be in a great pinch.

And that was…
