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

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


Chapter 2: The Adventurers’ Guild—translated by lucathia (proofread by elisa, Arcedemius, & Faren)

“Hurry up and eat! Why aren’t you eating? This chicken is fried so deliciously!”

Shooting Star was tearing into the chicken leg he held. He ate so fast that his mouth was filled with meat to the point that he couldn’t gulp it down. He could only grab a cup of ale from the side and gargle it, finally swallowing it all down. Then, he began attacking the meat patty that was off to the side.

Finally, he polished off the entire table—yes, the entire table—worth of dishes, and only then did Shooting Star pat his stomach in satisfaction.

Next to him, Bai Saya was nursing his cup of ale, almost forgetting to eat. From start to finish, he could only stare at Shooting Star, as his heart had filled with puzzlement ever since the dishes on the table had been reduced by half. Just where is Shooting Star, who looks so small and slim, putting all this food?

In one gulp, Shooting Star finished off his ale, and his expression suddenly became incomparably solemn. He turned to look at his companion and said sincerely and earnestly, “Bai Saya.”

“Yeah?”

“I know that you have difficulties speaking about it…”

Bai Saya was actually quite surprised. Shooting Star actually understands respecting other people’s privacy? He nodded as he said, “Yes. There are some things that I can’t speak about—”

“I knew it! Quick, tell me what those secret things are. I really want to know!” Shooting Star widened his eyes, like a child waiting to hear a story.

Y-you, do you really understand what it means to have difficulties speaking about it? It’s “difficult,” yet you want me to tell you quickly? Bai Saya didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

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

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


Chapter 1: The Cunning Boy VS the Righteous Swordsman—translated by lucathia (proofread by Arcedemius & Faren; C/E edited by raylight)

It was a scorching summer day, the sun hung high in the sky, and the recent temperature was frighteningly unbearable. With this kind of weather, even gnomes, creatures that were dirty but highly adaptable to all kinds of environments, would rather starve than come out to hunt. Slimes, mucus type creatures that could be seen everywhere, had also completely vanished from the roads. Only under the cool shadows of trees could a few wiggling mucus entities be found. The temperature was so high that even the slimes had melted.

Furthermore, the sunlight was so strong that you simply couldn’t keep your eyes open. The high temperature made even the dirt roads look deformed, and the smell in the air could only be described as “stifling hot.” All of this would make any traveler feel unwell, yet there just had to be someone who seemed to think walking along this path wasn’t difficult enough. That someone just had to add off-key singing. The low tones were as jarring as having rocks banged against the ground, while the high tones were akin to having nails scraping across glass. No one would feel the least bit comfortable hearing that.

That person was leisurely reclining on a thick branch of a tree by the side of the road. He had one leg propped on the other in a brash fashion and his arms behind his head. His position looked very unstable, as if he were in danger of falling at any moment, but anyone who heard the completely off the rails singing coming from his mouth would start praying, “Please fall down already!”

“One ugly pig, another ugly pig, a third ugly pig. Shooting Star has seen so many ugly pigs…”

The frightening singing suddenly stopped, and the guy who called himself Shooting Star shifted his body. He was a boy who looked to be around fifteen to sixteen years old. A huge smile abruptly appeared on his goose-egg shaped face, and an extraordinary sparkle flashed across his large, round eyes that could only be described as cute. He had found his prey. All of these signs indicated—a certain someone, or a certain unidentified creature, was about to be in a great pinch.

And that was…

[Yu Wo’s author notes]

This is actually a work from a long time ago.
At first, I thought I had lost it when I switched computers.
But surprisingly, I found that I have a draft saved with my friend Ash.
So, this child came back to my side. I’m most thankful to Ash~
Now, looking at this writing from such a long time ago,
I truly have a 囧 kind of feeling…
(When I wrote this, I’m sure Xü Chun Mei1 was still very popular! Look at how old this work is!)
Enough with the talking. Bon appétit:

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.

§Magical Exchange§

The God, can help you do good
The Devil, can help you do evil
The price can be
As small as losing one strand of hair
As great as suffering pain worse than death
Are you—willing to take the risk?
Between the God and the Devil
Will you—make a decision?
