Dominion’s End Volume 2: Aberrant City

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


Chapter 3: Red as Blood, Dazzling as Flowers—translated by Elkin (proofread by EvlNabiki & Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

Today was the third day after Dàgē’s departure. These past few days, I had left Yunqian’s training to Shujun, wanting to get the ice spear to a somewhat usable state as soon as possible.

This new weapon had to last me a good three to five years, so I took it very seriously. Every layer of ice crystals was compressed into a very fine layer, and that meant that I had to expend even more effort. Thankfully, I was more powerful than before, so I was able to compress more layers each time. Judging from the progress, it would probably take me around a month—oh wait, there’s a spearhead as well this time, so that would add another ten days to the count.

Dàgē had wanted to go to Zhongguan City while I stayed behind to mind the house, and since I needed to craft my spear and all, everything worked out just fine.

But what about afterwards? I can’t keep watching the house every time, right? Even if I keep getting my share of crystals, I’ll miss out on actual combat experience, which is a no go.

But we’ll need someone to mind the house. What a headache…

“Èrgē, it’s time for dinner!” Shujun poked her head in and looked curiously at the ice spear, giving an admiring sigh. “Your long spear is becoming prettier and prettier!”

Yes, no matter how fugly it was, it would still look presentable when wrapped in layers of compressed ice. And this time, I had made sure to compress it extra well, so the clear ice had turned a little milky white, which was perfect for concealing the true nature of the spear—that of a broken knife tied to a broomstick handle.

Part Thirty-one—translated by purplezero (proofread by Trespasserby & Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

Lin Jian Yin fiercely jumped up. He rushed out so quickly that Bai Xue Chen didn’t think he could catch up to his good friend, so he needed to catch a cab home by himself. Bai Xue Chen lifted his head up and was shocked to see a frightening scene—a black shadow rapidly crawled and filled the living room, as if it were alive. Darkness immediately engulfed more than half of the originally plentiful white space. In the blink of an eye, that black shadow was already near the round table.

Just when Bai Xue Chen thought that he would be swallowed by that black shadow, the black shadow was instead held off behind God Charity. By that time, with the exception of the little round table, everything else in the living room had become black.

It was as if God Charity didn’t notice the situation. He only kindly reminded Bai Xue Chen, “Mr. Bai, it’s getting late. Please go home earlier and rest.”

Bai Xue Chen didn’t want to stay a moment longer in the first place. He turned around and immediately rushed out the door. He could hear Devil Chaos’s laughter behind his back.

“Do you think it will be that easy? You think you can destroy my business? When would humans ever be willing to give up perfection to choose imperfection?”

Melody-jiě is going around telling everyone about An Xiang Ye and Charles’s special relationship.

But I don’t believe any of it, and it doesn’t look the others do either, because all An Xiang Ye does is snuggle with Briar all day. He acts like a complete pedophile!

I warned Briar to stay away from An Xiang Ye, but she just laughed and said An Xiang Ye just likes to snuggle in general. Then, she actually dragged me to his room… his bed was covered with plush toys! The bookshelves were stocked with fairy tales! There were also rubber duckies in the bathroom! Even the soap was shaped like a little turtle!

Can’t you at least play with robots and use monster-shaped soap?

An Xiang Ye. What are you, a twelve-year-old girl?

Chapter 5: House Keeper Part 3—The True and False World—translated by raylight (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by Amgine & lucathia)

It was rare for Yu Shu to step out of her own apartment. This time, she had a reason, though it wasn’t a very good one. Her neighbor was in the hospital, so she was going to pay him a visit—conveniently bringing along a packet of salt to sprinkle on his wounds.

House Keeper had followed her. In the journey between her apartment and the hospital, he had attracted the gaze of females from eight to eighty years old. All of them stared intently at him. There were also a few that had directly rushed over to give him their contact number, completely ignoring that he had a female by his side.

Even before reaching Jiang Ziya’s hospital room, Yu Shu decided that she would come over again. Next time, she would bring chili powder.

When she walked into the room, only Jiang Ziya was in. He was flipping through an original novel with much difficulty. His entire left arm was in a cast and bandaged, and he wasn’t able to move it a single inch. Even his right hand was wrapped firmly in bandages, and several gauzes were pasted on his face—which had been injured when he had fallen down.

The moment he saw Yu Shu, his expression immediately turned into one of alarm.

Yu Shu looked about the room and seemed puzzled as she asked, “Jiang Yu isn’t around?” It seemed like she could really sprinkle salt on his wounds then.

“My sister went shopping.” Jiang Ziya cowered as he said, “Ah… That… matter regarding House Keeper, I really didn’t do it on purpose…”

“I know. You did it deliberately,” Yu Shu sat at the side of the bed and coldly replied.

Jiang Ziya had no way of explaining himself.
