The Legend of Sun Knight Side Stories 20: Toward the Light

The Legend of Sun Knight Side Story: Toward the Light

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


“Toward the Light”—translated by lucathia, Taffygirl13 & Trespasserby (proofread by Trespasserby, C/E edited by lucathia)

The Death Knight who fell into the dark abyss still yearns for light, wishing to devote his loyalty to that first ray of light.

“What’s your name?”

Hearing the questioning voice, Roland turned to see a head of brilliant blond hair. Even under the setting evening sun, the resulting halo was still dazzling bright.

Grisia.

Roland looked at him and immediately recalled this name because he had left a deep impression.

Among the young Sun Knight candidates, Grisia was the first one everyone noticed. He had brilliant blond hair, sapphire blue eyes, and bright fair skin. He would also respond with a dazzling smile whenever he noticed anyone looking at him. He was practically a mini version of the Sun Knight. Every candidate thought he would be a strong foe—until the day they sparred using their swordsmanship.

Illusions, Side Stories

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我 (Yu Wo)


“Inheriting Jiu Ge”—translated by Minna (proofread by Trespasserby & Minthe; C/E edited by lucathia)

 

Canst thou be so willing to cast off ties and emotions to inherit the title of Dong Huang, the God of the Eastern Sky?

The tradition of Jiu Ge is passed down through nine broken lives.

This bond between the blade and its master, is it the person who seeks the sword or the sword that chases the person?

Two stories that should not exist,

Wouldst thou rather believe that they are illusions born from suffering, or actual events that have happened?

 

Since he was young, he would dream of that dynasty that shouldn’t have been, every night; the dazzling sight of the royal palace, the nymphs dancing in the sky, the soldiers, wearing golden and copper armor, guarding the huge city gate. Everything looked magnificent and dazzling. The real world looked dull in contrast.

After entering through the city gate, jade-green grass stretched wide and far, with small white down floating amidst a faint, almost imperceptible mist.

Nymphs clothed in feathers roamed about, picking flowers and fruits. Many people would look toward him and bow slightly, as if they were paying him respect. He would be startled each and every time.

He would roam everywhere. With each dream, he would arrive at a different place and see people of all sorts; sometimes they would be nymphs, while at other times they would be soldiers.

But the last scene of his dream would always be the same. Someone dressed in black who was leading the others would stand in front of him and ask him a question with a sorrowful expression.

No Hero Side Story: Good Child, Bad Child

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


Good Child, Bad Child, Part Three—translated by Doza (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

Ri Xiang Ye felt that this issue was a little hard to resolve. He shouldn’t interfere with internal conflicts in the mafia. However, if they continued to clash like this, who knew how much longer this mayhem would last. It had been a long time since Cornell’s death, yet they still had not decided on the person to be their boss. Perhaps the reason for their slow progress was the heroes keeping check on them, and as a result they could not make any large commotions.

“I’ll give you a week. I will notify the heroes not to bother you for this week. You’re not allowed to involve the civilians. After one week, if you are still being a disturbance, I will kill off all your candidates but one. You won’t need to choose!”

Ri Xiang Ye realized that after having killed before, threatening them with death was highly effective. Even though this was probably the wrong move, he couldn’t find a more effective method to stop these criminals… But did doing so mean that he was no different from a criminal?

Though he felt hesitant and doubtful about himself, he had to do this to bring this messy situation to a timely end.

Both sides privately discussed among themselves. It was evident from their whispering that they felt extremely dissatisfied. However, in the end, they still did not dare to reject it in front of Dark Sun and could only argue weakly.

“One week is too short…”

“Then two weeks!”

Good Child, Bad Child, Part Two—translated by Doza (proofread by Arcedemius and Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

“Let’s start sparring straightaway. But you have to control your strength. Don’t tear your Lin-yéye apart,” Lin-yéye said after some consideration, as he gazed at Ri Xiang Ye’s arms and legs with a knowing look.

Ri Xiang Ye hurriedly assured him, “I definitely won’t!”

After saying that, as if he was afraid that Lin-yéye would back out, he quickly moved his arms into position, adopting a perfect tai chi stance. However, compared to Lin-yéye’s pose, it was slightly lacking in ease and composure.

Previously, even though the slow-tempo combat was full of techniques that used the opponent’s strength against them, because of the slowness of it, it could not be applied to real combat and was more like a form of training instead.

Sparring was slow sometimes, quick at other times. Pushing, pulling and parrying were used to defend, and also had the additional benefit of completely disrupting your opponent’s fighting rhythm. Thus, pushing, pulling and parrying were also offensive moves that emphasized turning your opponent’s advantage to your own, and converting your opponent’s strength into your own strength. The more powerful the enemy, the stronger you became!

Good Child, Bad Child, Part One—translated by Doza (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

No matter how exhausted he was or how late he had slept the previous night, he could always wake up punctually at five the next morning. To most people, this would be quite difficult. However, to Ri Xiang Ye, this wasn’t difficult in the least. Rather, sleeping in was impossible for him—Ri Xiang Ye was a cyborg.

He got out of bed, opened his wardrobe, and then felt a bit troubled.

In the past, there were only a few types of clothes in the wardrobe: the dress shirt and jeans he wore to school, the sportswear for exercising, and his pajamas. There was no need to choose at all. He only had to wear something according to what he was going to do. There was entirely no need to agonize over it!

However, ever since he became a model and X-Killer’s spokesperson, the number of clothes he had had accumulated. If Charles did not regularly donate the clothes to charities, he probably wouldn’t be able to stuff any more clothes into his wardrobe.

Ri Xiang Ye truly did not know how he should feel about his life getting more and more complicated. He took out a set of sportswear that he had never worn before and quickly slipped into it. Following that, he walked out of his room.

“Good morning, Young Master.”
