Chapter Two: Simulation, Reality, Death—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by elisa & Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

Ri Xiang Yan held the black box of memories in his hands. His little brother Ah Ye, being the good child that he was, had gone off to sleep a long time ago. The office had been completely silent for some time when at last, there was the sound of a sigh.

“Bill.”

“Yes, Sun Emperor.” Kyle was still waiting on the phone. He was never the one that pressed the button to end a call.

“What should I do?” Ri Xiang Yan held the sparkling crescent necklace. It dazzled before him, like the smile of his first love had.

“I do not know.” Kyle still did his duty and did not provide a reply. He understood very well that this was not a business matter that required his response, and that the Sun Emperor also did not really want him to answer. He was posing the question to himself.

“Ugh! This matter has gone on for so long already, and he’s also hated me for so long. He’s not going to simply forgive me just after hearing a stupid reason like that, right?” Ri Xiang Yan idly spun the crescent necklace around and around.

Kyle quietly waited on the other end of the call.

“As for the revenge thing, just punish him a little. Don’t bother with ousting him anymore.” Ri Xiang Yan listlessly said, “I owe him that much.”

“Understood.”

Then Ri Xiang Yan pressed the button to end the call and stared at the crescent necklace in his hands for a long time. In the end, he placed it back into his box of mementoes and placed the cover of the box back on. But seeing the box whole again, he couldn’t help gazing fixedly at the black, finely detailed box again and lightly stroking the rubies on top.

Father…

Ri Xiang Yan closed his eyes and slowly leaned back into the chair. He murmured, “If māma hadn’t died or if you didn’t hate Dìdi, wouldn’t that have been great? We would have definitely been a happy family… Unfortunately, ‘what ifs’ have absolutely no meaning.”

He put away the box, sparing it no further attention.

No Hero Volume 9: Endless Days

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


The End NO.4: Merciless—translated by Trespasserby, Ever & Raylight (proofread by J Tao; C/E edited by lucathia)

Enemy: Lv. 1 in command, Ri Ji Yan, intends to harm the highest priority master. Eliminate!

Analysis of highest priority master’s condition: sorrow, rage, pain.

Lv. 2 in command has approached the highest priority master. Threat level low. No danger determined.

On standby.

“The higher-ups ordered a microchip installed in Ah Ye’s head to suppress his humanity, leaving behind only a robot that will obediently follow orders. Your little brother places your safety as the highest priority. Even if you command him to stop protecting you, it’d be useless.”

“I didn’t have a way to rescue him. All I could do was persuade those theorists that perhaps their employer would prefer to have a bodyguard with emotions. Also, if eliminating Dark Sun’s humanity negatively affected Dark Sun’s judgment, then what? So an alteration was made to the microchip, to include the option for retrieval in the settings…”

Change in the highest priority master’s mood. Analysis uncertain. Searching for additional examples to make a determination.

“So, give Dark Sun the command! Tell him to stop suppressing his humanity and emotions. Let him recall his memories. Ah Ye will remember you, his gēge, even though a brother like you took so long to get here!”

“Ah Ye.” The highest priority master spoke. “Stop suppressing your emotions. I don’t want to see you like this. You are my dìdi, not a robot bodyguard!”

Command received.

“Understood.”

Initiating action: Cancel emotion suppression setting. Processing…

Warning: Emotion suppression is classified as a core setting of the microchip and is unable to be changed. Unable to follow command.

The highest priority master has issued the command. Following the command has highest priority.

Unable to follow command. Following the command has highest priority. Unable to follow command. Following the command—changing core setting. Attempting to restart.

“Ah Ye!”

Big and Little Sun Go Go

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


Part 26: Armed to the Teeth—translated by Simone (proofread by J Tao; C/E edited by lucathia)

“Congratulations, the players obtained the Leaf Clan’s Artifact.”

A leaf-shaped pendant appeared in Elaro’s hands. The leaf seemed like an unassuming, authentic leaf, but when he touched it, he discovered that it bore a kind of illusion that made it only seem like a real leaf.

Of course Grisia was elated to have received an object that could automatically treat serious injuries, but presently, he and Elaro both looked somewhat puzzled. Elaro hesitantly asked, “‘The Pope’s Veil,’ is that referring to our Pope?”

Grisia chuckled. A veil, a beautiful, sixteen-year-old young man, who could it be but our Pope?

Elaro paused for a moment, then asked, “Teacher, the next worlds we go to, could—
could our world be a possibility?”

Grisia considered it and said, “Perhaps it is possible.”

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 3: The End Begins

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


Afterword—translated by lucathia (proofread by elisa)

The largest change in this volume was Saiximili’s personality, conduct, and some of his small quirks.

In the old edition, Saiximili’s personality was much more bumbling, and he didn’t show much responsibility toward his nation, though this could be because I depicted too little of the avian nation. The importance of his own nation to Saiximili was not shown properly. Anyway, when I examined this later on, I felt that this kind of Saiximili did not match the Saiximili I had in mind.

Perhaps he really doesn’t like being a king much, and isn’t very good at it either, but he is still the king, and he does his best to be a good king. Therefore, I highlighted his responsibility toward his position as king more. Finally, the king, Saiximili, is properly depicted.

Other changes include strengthening the guard captain Barna and Markham’s presence, paving the way for future plot related details regarding the avian nation.
