Ezart walked very slowly into the classroom. The teacher was already teaching at the podium, and the students were already wreaking havoc below. However, as soon as he came in, everyone suddenly stopped and stared as though they were frozen in place inside a freezer.

After several seconds of analysis, everyone confirmed that Ezart’s expression was the same as usual and continued to wreak havoc or teach as usual. The classroom was complete chaos, with various things that could be used in a fight lying scattered across the classroom in pieces, but Ezart’s path was particularly clear.

“Ezart, Ezart. You’re here!” Ri Xiang Ye happily waved at Ezart.

“You’re pretty fast. Were you late?” Ezart casually replied.

“Nope,” Ri Xiang Ye said delightedly.

“Really?” Ezart didn’t really believe him. If he himself had run at full speed, he would still have trouble arriving on time. But he didn’t ask further about a small matter like that.

“Oh, I want to tell you something! I met Bai Lian Xing and his three friends.”

Ezart coldly laughed. “Those are his minions. What? Did they give you a group beating?”

“Nope,” Ri Xiang Ye shook his head. “He wanted me to pass on a message.”

“Ah?” Ezart pulled a chair out and lazily sat in the chair.

Chapter One: A Demon Incarnate—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius & EvlNabiki; C/E edited by lucathia)

Although a small number of elites in the world had their diaries dictated by conspiracies and schemes every day, most of the populace’s lives were fortunately still peaceful.

At the very least, the morning streets of the city were still tranquil.

Two ordinary youths walked along these city streets. If one had to say what might be strange about them, it would be that these two people had unusual hair colors, one silver and one orange.

The silver-haired boy looked especially proper. His hair was parted neatly and his school uniform was ironed straight. In this day and age, even if you combed through the most famous schools, it would be difficult to find such a classic example of a student.

The orange-haired youth had a laidback appearance. Although he looked that way, his tall and sturdily built figure along with his muscled arms exposed by his short-sleeved shirt warned other people that he wasn’t someone to mess with.

Prologue—translated by Trespasserby (proofread by Arcedemius &EvlNabiki; C/E edited by lucathia)

Not too long ago, there was a criminal operation aimed against the Sun Emperor. The criminals had placed countless bombs in the Sun Alliance headquarters owned by the Sun Emperor. They threatened the Sun Emperor with the thousands of people in the building, and planned to abduct him.

The Sun Emperor, called cold-blooded and heartless by people up until this point, agreed to their request in an unprecedented move, shocking people so much their eyeglasses shattered. The release of thousands of hostages made it even clearer that the Sun Emperor had truly fallen into the hands of the criminals.

But following that, the headquarters had still been blown up and the entire building was instantly reduced to a pile of rubble. Fortunately, the few thousand people were no longer inside.

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 2: Elf, Nanny, Thunderous Anger

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

Afterword

The new edition has reached volume two. If you have read the old edition, you will know that they are visiting a certain kingdom next.

The progression of the plot has finally reached one of the parts that I felt was regretful. I didn’t develop this kingdom enough in the past, so I hope I can add more to their visit of this kingdom. I also want to show more of matters between a certain king and his subordinate.

I have built up Dan’s presence more in this volume and strengthened the mystery behind the Guild. I also felt I could have done better with the Guild, but I have to say that my entire depiction of the demon race was too undeveloped. The new edition will develop them more.

Of course, the elves could use more development, too.

All in all, what I regret the most about the old edition is my lack of development of each race and kingdom. I believe this is because my first series was written in first person. I kept feeling that the story must revolve around the protagonist, so whenever the main characters separated, I would very simply skim over the branching paths of the other characters.

But now that I think back on it, that wasn’t the right way to do it. Wasn’t choosing to tell this story in third person exactly because I can write about things that don’t have to do with the protagonist? Yet in the end, the story still completely revolved around the protagonist, wasting the biggest advantage of third person!

Chapter 10: The Stone of Original Sin Here to Attack—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Taffygirl13)

“A demon and a half demon. You think you can defeat me with that?” Braids squawked in a high pitch, “Do you all have any clue of the true power behind the Stones of Original Sin?!”

A demon and a half demon? They were taken aback, a bit confused by what Braids meant.

“No matter how amazing something is, it’d become rotten in the hands of an idiot like you!” Shooting Star shouted, drawing everyone’s attention. The long whip in his hands shot toward Braids as if it were alive.

“You fight him in close quarters. I’ll strike stealthily.” Shooting Star took this chance to whisper to Dan beside him.

Dan nodded. He was a steadfast, mage blade of the earth element. As for Shooting Star, he was obviously the agile type. This way of arrangement was indeed correct, so Dan did not suspect that Shooting Star was being lazy. In fact, in order to prevent Braids from sneakily readying some sort of trap with the grass, Dan actually dashed right at him.

Along the way, many weeds surged up to block his way, but Dan did not falter for even a single step. He let the grass strike at him, the battle aura around his body naturally taking care of such weak attacks.

However, against the personal swings of Braids’s thorny whip, Dan did not dare to gamble. He raised the magic sword in his hand, properly swinging his sword to block the attacks. Even though the whip’s attacks were irregular and ever changing, Dan’s defense was also solid. While the earth element did not have strong offensive power, its defensive power was unparalleled.
