GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 4: The First Duel

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


Chapter 1: Currently Sick, Part Two—translated by lucathia (proofread by Minthe)

“Philo is too kind. He might not be able to harm Doom, if Doom is that boy.”

A somewhat cold voice came from a dark corner.

A figure stood there, the upper body completely concealed in shadow. After saying those words, he stepped out from the shadows, slowly making his way beside the window. The sunlight streaming in through the window discomforted him a bit. He lifted his right hand to his eyes, while his left hand held a thick, exquisite book. The hard, stiff, black book seemed to reflect the owner’s character perfectly.

The owner of the book had a unique appearance. At a glance, his silver hair and somewhat dark skin might make one think him to be a cousin of the elves, an evil dark elf who lived belowground but had trespassed aboveground. However, no matter if it was his stature or his round ears, both indicated that he was indeed a human and not a dark elf.

Even though his mother had cried out with “demon” upon seeing his red eyes at birth and thrown him to the ground, never willing to look at him again, that was not important.

Since the moment he was born, he had already understood his identity—he was a starseer who would foresee the future.

A starseer had a mission more important than anything else—finding his guide, and then accompanying him until the end, even if that “end” was the end of the world.

“Xixiuliye, you’re rushing things again.”

GOD —The Beginning of the End— Volume 4: The First Duel

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


Chapter 1: Currently Sick, Part One—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby)

“What bountiful spoils of war! I never thought that my guide would be so amazing. Not only did he escape from the curse, he even captured one of ‘Stench’s’ sinners.”

Saiximili looked emotionally at Philo, who was lying on the ground with the Stone of Lethargy around his neck.

The king had thought he would soon be out of a job—being the king was just a side gig, while being a starseer was his main profession—but who knew that not only had he not lost his job, he had even gotten a raise! Why wouldn’t he be feeling emotional?

“Bountiful, my ass!” Shooting Star growled ferociously, “I was this close, really, this close, to becoming so red in the face that even the Heavens would get jealous of my beauty and that I would die as a handsome, young lad! You useless starseer, you’re still celebrating over there like an idiot!”

Alan glanced at him. Although he was an elf, even he knew that beauty and handsomeness weren’t usually applied to the same person.

“Of course I’m happy!” Saiximili had on an expression that implied, “You don’t know this, but…” as he explained, “Think about it. There are only a total of seven sinners, and you already have two of them on your side. If the Guide of Existence wishes to kill you, they would at least have to send three sinners over in order to have a chance at succeeding. So, if you kill one of Stench’s sinners, it would nearly be impossible for them to send another three sinners after you!”

Shooting Star had on an expression of realization. This made a lot of sense. Although he felt that if Alan was given some time, he could probably evolve into being able to fight one against two, for safety purposes, it was still better to fight two against one!

“W-Wait a moment, who are you planning to kill?”

To the side, Bai Saya, who had once “again” overused the stone’s power, had collapsed to the floor after returning to White Feather Nation. Even the two people he had carried back had been tossed to the floor. But the moment he heard “kill,” he promptly lifted his head, interrupting Saiximili and Shooting Star’s dangerous conversation with a panicked expression.

Epilogue: Character Introductions—translated by lucathia (proofread by J Tao)

Afterword

While doing research, I always found this idea interesting: a regular non-religious person, such as me, comes by most of their religious knowledge through movies, comics, and novels. However, if you look deeper, you would plainly discover that ninety-nine percent of these portrayals are wrong. Yes, very wrong! Don’t doubt it.

Yet, although a misleading concept may arise due to movies, it can become more real than the truth. A hundred years later, will it end up coming true and thus get written into proper religious texts?

I feel like it’s very possible!

Chapter 5: Library, Part 3—Book—translated by lucathia (proofread by Trespasserby & J Tao)

Liu Yishi had wanted to take a look at his son’s injuries, but heard a gunshot. The color drained from his face.

House Keeper spun around, the large cape behind him enveloping Lu Yang and pulling his entire person to the side. Lu Yang was tossed to the angel and Lin Zhixiang, who were both kneeling on the ground. Then, House Keeper pounced toward the person who had fired the shot at such a high speed that it seemed like he had teleported.

However, the other person dodged with equal speed, and even jumped from the second floor straight onto the third floor’s guardrail.

House Keeper gazed at that person from the second floor but did not follow them up. Another person was there. House Keeper keenly sensed that that person should not be crossed. He was just here to help on his mistress’s orders. Going as far as entering the library was for Jiang Ziya’s sake. He had no intention to get injured, or even worse, disappear, just to help out. Mistress would grieve.

House Keeper glanced at Hold Keeper. No matter how sharp his words were, Hold Keeper was always the more softhearted of the two. The results of coming here to help this time included losing an arm, and would definitely also include a scolding from the mistress when they returned home.

Hold Keeper clearly knew what was on House Keeper’s mind. He turned his face away and merely called out, “Aren’t we leaving yet? It wasn’t worth it at all! I shouldn’t have come in the first place.”

Chapter 5: Library, Part 2—Angel—translated by lucathia (proofread by J Tao)

Liu Yishi’s eyes were completely bloodshot.

Any father who watched his son die right before his eyes countless times—and, in particular, deaths that involved getting chopped into pieces—would end up with eyes as red as blood.

The human head basketball at the courts in the beginning had been too crude, so he knew at a glance that it was not real. He was certain that the opponent had not planned for the basketball to successfully trick him and had only used it to pave the way for the car accident that happened afterward.

The moment he saw Lu Yang get run over, he had truly been scared; after all, his son had just been in a traffic accident. But, when that “Jiang Ziya” began to lead him toward thinking about Resurrection, the inconsistencies became immediately apparent!

Newly suspicious, Liu Yishi realized that the “son” in his arms was too light. Although Lu Yang did not have a stocky build, he was actually quite muscular. Ten out of ten people would find his weight unbelievable, yet the son he held in his hands, his son who had just been in a car accident, was light as a feather. Even Liu Yishi could easily pick him up.

Right then and there, Liu Yishi decided that he would play along. He followed “Jiang Ziya” to the library, hoping to lure out the person behind Xu Xikai. He had not thought that the policemen stationed at the library would all be gone. He turned right away to grab “Jiang Ziya,” but the other person had stolen ahead and pulled a gun on him. Liu Yishi could only watch as he fled.

With no other choice, Liu Yishi took the two remaining policemen who were with him into the library to find Hu Lican and the others.
