GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 3: The End Begins

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


Chapter 3: Overthinking Companions—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“You don’t have to keep your promise. I don’t want you to play with me anymore!”

The elf’s eyes shot open. Blinding sunlight wove through the leaves of the trees, shining straight into his eyes, making it difficult for him to keep them open. It was only after he crawled up that he realized the sun was already high in the sky. How can it be so late already?

He naturally turned and accused, “Bai Saya, why didn’t you wake me up to prepare breakfast?”

However, there wasn’t a single person beside him, only forest and grass. This wasn’t a dense forest, and the trees weren’t all that tall either. It was mostly grass and shrubs. Among the rather empty forest floor, there was only a single white rabbit that paused after hearing the elf’s shout. It stared at him with red eyes before quickly hopping away.

Chapter 2: Easy-Going Father, Strict Mother—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & Lala Su)

Originally, the speed at which Shooting Star and company advanced on the road, given their high exhaustion from searching for Bai Saya without sleep or rest, was only slightly faster than taking a stroll.

After getting ambushed by Braids, Bai Saya, who had originally been the most energetic among them, became a wounded patient. The team had also acquired the small avian Yaya, who had legs but didn’t know how to walk, and wings but didn’t know how to fly. Therefore, their speed decreased until it was no different from taking a stroll.

Shooting Star teased Yaya the entire way. Yaya would cry and run for her mama—meaning, Alan. Following that, it was Alan’s turn to “tease” Shooting Star; although the skies stretched far and wide without a cloud in sight during this entire period, lightning flashed nonstop.

“Wah—” Yaya began to wail again. Unfortunately, as she hadn’t been able to learn how to walk or fly yet, she could only keep squirming in Shooting Star’s arms, wanting to escape the devil’s grasp and return to her mama’s warm embrace.

“Shooting Star!” Alan’s face was furious, as if he were a mother whose child was getting bullied. He rushed over and snatched Yaya back. Then, he growled, “Don’t bully Yaya!”

Shooting Star boldly said, “I wasn’t bullying her. I was only pinching her cheeks!”

Alan glared at Shooting Star suspiciously. Then, he lowered his head to look. Yaya’s fair cheeks had two red fingerprints on them. He had really only pinched her cheeks—so hard that they were turning purple!

“Shooting Star!”

Ugh…

Why is it so bright? Is it daytime already? Why didn’t Bai Saya wake me up?

On a normal day, even before the skies would start to brighten, Bai Saya would already be up and training. After he finished his morning training, he would wake Alan up. Then, the two of them would split up to search for breakfast.

The elf opened his beautiful, slim eyes. The piercing sunlight immediately made him shut them again. A long time passed before he could open them once more. It was really too bright already. Not only that, the sun was directly above him. It seems to be noontime, but how is it possible for me to sleep all the way until noon?

He sat up quickly and his state of confusion lasted for a bit before he finally remembered what had happened.

They had been attacked by a plant manipulator. Unable to win, Shooting Star had wanted to use group teleportation so they could flee, but he had been stopped before he could finish reciting the incantation. Defeat had been right before their eyes when Bai Saya had woken up, screamed, and…

Self-destructed.

Illusions, Lies, Truth Volume 3: In the Name of God, Part One

Epilogue: Character Introductions—translated by lucathia (proofread by Taffygirl13, Minthe & Trespasserby)

Afterword

From this volume onward, Illusions, Lies, Truth is finally taking on its original setup: the supernatural genre (are you sure this is really a supernatural story?). Well… at least there’s a supernatural studies society!

I really want to ask, are there any cases of authors out there writing horror stories who get scared to death by themselves?

When I was writing the chapter about the school wonders, it was mostly in the middle of the night. As a result, whenever I went to use the bathroom, I couldn’t help but turn my head to glance at the dark corridors and the living room, or I would lift my head to look at the small window high up in the bathroom. Each and every time, I would nervously realize that there wasn’t anything there at all!

Late at night, when I told a friend online that I was writing a ghost story and getting super scared, the friend hit me while I was down, immediately describing supernatural things he had experienced before—you’ll always have some friends like that in your life. Never tell them that you’re super scared of a ghostie, or that you’re currently on a diet because you’ll immediately receive a mountain of scary photos, plus links to food blogs and a bunch of invitations to go out to eat!

Jian Zhi—

The angel’s lower half had already turned into a lump of mud, and its upper body was slowly sinking into the mud. The angel struggled to use both hands to grab onto the tragic Jian Zhi but was unable to touch anything, screams resounding endlessly.

Lu Yang had Slay hover horizontally before him, but he hesitated a bit about what to do. He felt that this guardian spirit was about to wink out of existence even without his interference. This wasn’t strange; there were plenty of cases where a guardian spirit would vanish along with the target that they guarded when the target passed away. It was just that this situation was particularly devastating.

Under the assault of the shrieking, Jiang Ziya asked with difficulty, “Lu Yang, c-can you stop the angel?”

“What do you mean by stop?” Lu Yang asked in confusion, “The angel isn’t attacking at all and will probably disappear once completely submerged.”

“Can you help the angel transcend?” Jiang Ziya really couldn’t bear to watch the angel get torn apart by Slay.

“You want me to help an angel transcend?” Lu Yang nearly choked. “Don’t you feel that these are two different religious notions? Besides, the angel is about to sink. I won’t make it in time no matter what I do!”

Jiang Ziya braced himself and said, “Would you make it in time to slay the angel? As long as you can make it so that the angel won’t continue to scream like this.”
