I leaned against the utility pole, tipping the bloodstained evolution crystal in my hand into the hip flask. The palm-sized hip flask looked like it was made of silver, a beautifully wrought piece of art, and there was even the name “Feng” engraved on the bottom in ancient Chinese. I had no idea what possessed Jin Feng to put a small hip flask in my backpack. Did she want to give me some liquid courage?

Anyway, once I drained the alcohol inside in one gulp, the hip flask became the perfect container for holding evolution crystals. By now, the only use I had for these tierless crystals was for healing, so after popping back a few crystals to heal up, I saved up the rest to give the others when I returned.

But I really wasn’t planning on accumulating so many. I just wanted to get home ASAP!

Technically, if I could directly run home, I’d probably reach home after running non-stop for a day and a night. But I couldn’t travel in a straight line, and there were so many aberrants in the city that my skin crawled. Although I hadn’t yet run into more tier one aberrants, a bunch of tierless aberrants could still mob someone to death!

This was the third day after leaving Jin Feng’s. I really missed the days when someone would spoon feed me. Jiggling the hip flask caused the contents to rattle softly. It was a rich harvest, with crystals everywhere to be found in this city. This only made me warier of danger. Judging from the looks of things, I’d been extremely lucky to rise to tier one so early in the suburbs. There was just no comparing the dangers in the city to those found in the suburbs.

Magical Exchange Short Stories

The Melancholy of Jealousy—translated by Minna (proofread by Trespasserby & Arcedemius; C/E edited by lucathia)

On the high school’s track field was a group of lively teenage girls.

“Lü Zi, don’t run so quickly!” Ma Sheng tried hard to keep up with the girl in front of her.

“You’re just too slow,” Lü Zi shouted back toward the girl who had fallen far behind her.

“Ma Sheng just can’t run that fast,” Ma Sheng whined, her originally high-class, beautiful air immediately changing to a pretty and cute one.

But no matter what, she is still very beautiful and attractive. This line of thought flashed through Lü Zi’s mind. Compared to the beautiful and tall Ma Sheng, Lü Zi, with a face full of pimples and her naturally dark skin, couldn’t seem to compare at all.

“Who told you to slack off from practicing?” As Lü Zi spoke, she couldn’t help but feel happy on the inside because track and field was the only thing she could beat Ma Sheng at. She and Ma Sheng had been friends since elementary school, had gone to the same middle school later on, and were even attending the same high school, so naturally they were very close. Since elementary school, Ma Sheng had already been a beauty. Now that they were in high school, she had grown even more beautiful. Her admirers could surely fill the whole track field. Lü Zi had always been Ma Sheng’s best friend, and Ma Sheng was also… Lü Zi’s good friend. Alright! Saying that she wasn’t jealous would be a lie, but it was okay. At least she still had track and field, the only place she could excel over Ma Sheng. Out on the field, Lü Zi was always the most confident.

Nearly ten days had passed. Even though Yu Shu was as impatient as the wind, wanting to bring the other guy out right away as well, she didn’t have a single way to accomplish it. The injury on her shoulder was even more serious than she had originally thought. The mere act of raising her hand would cause her to wince and clench her teeth. If she headed inside like this, she would definitely meet her doom.

Yu Shu had no other choice but to recuperate while she wrote her manuscript. Even though she was unable to type, she was fortunate in that she could dictate and let the butler handle the manuscript. Using this time, she had completed the manuscript, so she could turn it in and prevent Ye Luo from coming to her door again.

After she finished drinking the coffee made by the butler, Yu Shu gestured at the wall above the television and said, “Butler, help me bring down that sword.”

The butler did as she asked. Before he handed it over, he looked at it curiously. It was a plain katana, its form quite simple and undecorated. He drew it out to look at the blade, handing the sword over to her with some bewilderment. At the same time, he said cautiously, “It seems that this katana has not been sharpened.”

Yu Shu shrugged and said, “Of course not. If it were sharpened, that would be against the law. I’m such a law-abiding, good citizen. There’s no way I would do something illegal!”

A peculiar feeling seized him, but he didn’t understand what it meant. He only felt that bringing an unsharpened katana didn’t seem to be of much use. Still, when he handed the katana over, he didn’t voice any further concerns.

Picking up a wide belt, Yu Shu fastened the katana to her waist and walked in front of a black cardboard box. Intrigued, the butler approached to watch. Even though he had seen it once before already, at the time, he hadn’t given much thought to his surroundings, while now, he was filled with… curiosity? This feeling should be called curiosity, right?

Yu Shu opened the box in an almost reverent manner, pulling the flaps open to the left and the right. It was as if the box had a set of doors that could swing open. After opening them, what was revealed inside was a stack of books. She caressed the pile of books and began reciting the content from the stories.

“That was a world filled with gods…”

The sound of footsteps…

When he heard it, Grisia immediately extended his sensing. Nowadays, he didn’t extend his sensing very far, and pretty much kept it to only three to five meters around him. If he didn’t do that, it would be too taxing, and he wouldn’t be able to keep it up for the many hours required. Although he now limited his public appearances as much as possible, it was still rather challenging.

Grisia turned, smiling at the person approaching. He wasn’t expecting the person not to even slow down upon reaching him, or that they would burrow directly into his embrace.

Stunned for a moment, Grisia then gently placed his hand on the person’s shoulder.

“Cleric Ludia, may the God of Light forever bless you. Have the God of Light’s murmurings reminded you to come forth and discuss the God of Light’s benevolence with Sun, or might there be some other matter?”

Ludia raised her head from Grisia’s embrace and pouted. “Uncle, don’t speak in such a formal and verbose manner!”

“Fine, I’ll stop.” Grisia extended his hand to pat the girl’s head and purposely asked, “What’s the matter? Is Elaro bullying you?”

Ludia giggled. “Brother would never bully me! Truly, he was very worried about you this time.”

“I was only a little delayed. Ludia, in the future, you’ll have to watch over Elaro more for me.” Grisia sighed. “I never thought that child would be so impulsive. This time, he went way overboard!”

After he finished speaking, he felt it was rather amusing. He had never thought that he would one day say someone had gone overboard. In the past, it was always Lesus calling him out on it.

“Young Master, inside the butler’s metal cabin, there’s his father’s photo, a photograph of a woman, a broken cell phone, and the portrait that you gave him. It’s really unbelievable for that butler to actually leave all those behind!”

Melody-jiě’s face was dark as she walked out of Charles-gē’s room, and she told An Xiang Ye that. At that moment, I immediately felt that it was impossible! However, An Xiang Ye instead just said, “Maybe he just doesn’t want them anymore.”

“Young Master! I found Mr. Butler’s phone! The phone had actually been crushed and thrown away! That butler! Even if he quit his job, would he crush the phone that you gave him?” Dell-gē exclaimed as he fussed over the details.

I was also shocked. Although I had not known Charles-gē for long, he was definitely not one to destroy things. However, An Xiang Ye said, “He doesn’t need a phone anymore, anyway.”

Ah Ye, do you really believe that Charles-gē is someone who would call to quit his job, merely say that he would pay the penalty fees, and disappear without even saying sorry?

In the end, I couldn’t stop myself from grabbing An Xiang Ye’s shoulders, shaking him and shouting at him fiercely, to see if I could wake him up more. Charles-gē must have been kidnapped! Even though no one came asking for a ransom… he must have been captured!

However, An Xiang Ye broke free, and he roared even louder than me, “If I find him, and he really just wants to leave me, and there isn’t any reason for it? Then, what should I do?”

Then, beat him up until he’s almost dead!

I answered without hesitation. If he really doesn’t have any reason at all, then he would at least deserve to be beaten up by you! What about it? Are you going to find Charles-gē or not?

“I…”
