GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 2: Elf, Nanny, Thunderous Anger
Original novel in Chinese by: 御 我 (Yu Wo)
Chapter 4: Thunderous Winter Anger, Part One—translated by lucathia (proofread by EvlNabiki)
Alanmishusgrodiatila, often shortened to Alanmishus by his clansmen, meant “thundersnow” in the elven language.
Just like the nature of all elves, he was indifferent, but his clansmen claimed that Alanmishus was just like his name implied. Although he was as cold as the winter, once angered, his wrath was as alarming as thunder in winter.
Even if one was angry, it would not help the situation at all, so why get angry in the first place? This would most likely be the response of all elves in his current situation.
Alanmishus was a slave who was about to be auctioned off.
Although he had never met a slave before getting captured, he had heard tales from the older generation about what happened to elves after getting captured.
First was getting confined in a dark prison. He had already experienced that. Then came getting marveled at like a commodity by humans. This he had experienced yesterday. Last came getting bought by someone, forever losing his freedom.
He would not be able to return to the forest, and he would never be able to freely leap between the trees and breathe in the forest air.
The first two had already happened. Tomorrow, some human would bring a bunch of sparkling gold metal in exchange for taking him. Then, his freedom would be gone forever.
Alanmishus absentmindedly took the auction item that the human next to him passed over. Yesterday, it was a baffling cup. Today, it was a baffling scarf. Why do humans like such things?
Whatever. It had nothing to do with him. He stopped guessing at the minds of humans and merely walked expressionlessly onto the stage. The place was just like yesterday, still and silent, but it wouldn’t be so silent tomorrow. At the very least, voices would clamor with bids, the elf mocked inwardly.
