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

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


Afterword and Character Introductions—translated by lucathia (proofread by EvlNabiki)

Afterword

GOD has been published again.

Compared to revised editions of other series, the new version of the series GOD will have more changes. Especially starting from the middle portion, I will be adding some more scenes.

It’s because when I reread GOD after a long period had passed, I felt that the foreshadowing of the first portion was not enough, and the middle to final portions were too rushed. Since it’s a rare, new edition, I decided to revise it and develop the plot more. That way, the “rushed” feeling will be fixed.

To those who have read my novels before, you will likely know that the first volume is usually for describing the important characters. GOD, on the other hand, has fairly slow development, taking many more volumes than other series to detail all the characters. Back then, I was a little shocked at how slow the development was, so I began to increase the pace of the second to final portions of the story.

However, now that I’m looking at it again, I was actually wrong. The first portion was actually better, while the middle to final portions were too rushed. There were more ideas and plot development that should have and could have been included.

Now that I can publish this novel again, I am super happy, especially since I can make up for the parts that were lacking in the original story, to make GOD, this darling book, become even better. This really solves a lot of my regrets.

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

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


Chapter 10: Saya-jiějie—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Lala Su)

“Liar Tang Wulie, stupid old fart Tang Wulie, when I return to Stella, I’m gonna rip off a layer of his skin, or else my name isn’t Shooting Star!”

Shooting Star growled for the five hundred sixty second time.

Bai Saya merely smiled wryly and tried to calm him down. “Shooting Star, don’t shout so loudly. It’ll be terrible if there’s an avalanche.”

Hearing the word avalanche truly frightened Shooting Star. He immediately clamped his mouth shut, afraid to keep shouting. The weather was cold enough. If he were to get buried by snow, then he’d be dead meat for sure.

At this time, the two of them were both clinging onto their cloaks for dear life. The cloaks were even coated with a thick layer of white particles. Romantically put, it’d be called snow, but more realistically, it was shattered ice filled with germs.

Beneath their feet, a thick layer of snow had also accumulated where they stood.

Chapter 9: The Poor Pet Who Makes a Living to Feed His Master—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby)

As Bai Saya watched Shooting Star chase after Tang Wulie with a whip, he smiled and shook his head. Then, his gaze turned toward the twisted, burnt corpse on the ground.

At first, he had thought that he would feel great emotion from completing his vengeance, but when Bai Saya looked at the corpse on the ground, his heart was strangely calm, void of both happiness and hatred. All he felt was a sense of relaxation from having finished his task.

“Shifu, your disciple has avenged you,” he said softly.

“Xiao Bai!”

Bai Saya raised his head. Shooting Star’s large eyes sparkled before him. This expression must mean he’s up to no good again, right? He couldn’t help smiling helplessly. “What is it?”

“What is it!” Shooting Star’s expression was shocked as he asked, “H-have you forgotten?”

“Hm?” Bai Saya began feeling flummoxed. Did I really forget something important?

Shooting Star’s mouth wobbled, and his large eyes welled. He used a rather pitiful voice to mumble, “You promised me earlier, yet now you’ve forgotten it completely. Xiao Bai looks so honest, but it turns out that he’s a big liar. My big bro was right that you can’t judge a book by its cover. I gave you my all, yet you stomped all over my heart…”

GOD V1C8: Shifu’s Legacy

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

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


Chapter 8: Shifu’s Legacy—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & Trespasserby)

Although Shooting Star had been an adventurer for a good long while, coming here to the Adventurers’ Guild’s battle arena was a first. In the past, he had his hands full just with making money to support himself. Even though he could stave off hunger by capturing forest animals, they just weren’t as tasty as the dishes prepared by the restaurants in the city.

Therefore, Shooting Star didn’t have any time to watch something like a duel, and he definitely wouldn’t waste his hard-earned money on placing a bet over who would win or lose.

As expected of the Adventurers’ Guild, whose influence spread throughout the Northern and Western Continents, even a small city had a battle arena that was nothing to scoff at. The arena was semicircular and very spacious. The spectator seats to the side were a full three stories high, and eighty percent of the seats were actually filled.

“Tang Wulie, that old rascal. It’s enough that he’s taking bets. He’s even letting in spectators!”

Shooting Star was so angry that his teeth smarted. Even Bones, an undead creature without a brain, could figure out that Tang Wulie was definitely making a killing from selling the tickets, yet Shooting Star had actually agreed to split the bet with him thirty-seventy. I hate him…

There was a circular stage in the middle of the arena, with four round pillars in the four corners of the stage. A large, round orb sat atop of each pillar. After Tang Wulie walked closer to the round pillars, he spoke with a few people whose clothes hinted that they might be mages. Then, they immediately set to work.

It didn’t take long for the orbs to begin emitting a soft light. A layer of faint light enveloped the stage. It was likely to be a protective dome added to prevent the audience from getting hurt.

“Brat, ready to die?”

GOD V1C7: The Sword of Sacred White

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

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


Chapter 7: The Sword of Sacred White—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & EvlNabiki)

Time flew. Three months passed by in the blink of an eye. Although Shooting Star felt it would be safer to wait another month or two, even if he tried to stall to the best of his ability, Mannen had already lost all patience. If they didn’t hurry and return his son, he would likely burn down the entire forest.

Shooting Star was still a little worried, but all he could do now was silently eat his food. After this, it would all be up to Bai Saya. He turned his head to look at the guy next to him.

Said guy was covered in filth. Although his hair was pulled up into a ponytail, it stuck out here and there. Whether it was his face, his hands, or his feet, all was covered with a thick layer of grime, practically obscuring the color of his skin. As for the clothes he wore, using them as rags to wipe the floor might even dirty the floor!

The strangest thing was, heavy cloth bags hung from his hands, his feet, and even his back. He was clearly eating, yet he hadn’t removed those cloth bags. He really looked out of place. Even a beggar wouldn’t be as bedraggled as he was.

“Hurry and eat! You’re gonna have to fight Mannen soon.” Shooting Star, who burped after eating his fill, patted that guy’s back.

“Okay.”

This voice was rather familiar. Who else could it be but Bai Saya?

“Nervous?” Shooting Star teased.

“No…” Although he reflexively answered that way, Bai Saya paused momentarily. He took in a deep breath and instead said, “Yes, very nervous.”
