Ri Xiang Ye speedily walked into the school cafeteria. He was just thinking of rushing to line up to buy lunch when…

“Stupid brat. Over here!”

Ri Xiang Ye turned to look. Ezart was already lazily munching on bread. As usual, his surroundings were free of people. It was clear that Ezart had already realized that Ri Xiang Ye hadn’t come to the cafeteria first, so he’d helped Ri Xiang Ye grab two large plates of food.

Oh no! Ri Xiang Ye anxiously walked over and sat across from Ezart.

“What the hell were you doing!” As expected, he was yelled at as soon as he sat down. “I told you to come buy lunch first and you came even later than I did!”

Although Ezart was cursing at him, the expression on his face clearly wasn’t one of real anger. Ri Xiang Ye even had the impression that Ezart was in a good mood.

Ri Xiang Ye was puzzled. He had definitely heard other people say that Ezart and Bai Lian Xing had gone up against Elian from the Elites and had even lost two against one. In the end, both of them had been killed and eliminated by Elian.

This was why Dark Sun had been unable to find Ezart in the battle simulator that entire time. Finally, the timer for the game had run out, and he had no choice but to hurriedly change into student clothes and run to the cafeteria.

“You seem really happy?” Ri Xiang Ye gingerly asked.

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.

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!
