No Hero Volume 9: Endless Days

Original novel in Chinese by: 御我(Yu Wo)


Prologue: E.X.—translated by TaffyGirl13 (proofread by Trespasserby; C/E edited by lucathia)

Darkness had fallen outside the pulled open curtains. There was no moonlight tonight, though the sky was filled with bright stars. It seems that from today onwards, there should not be a need to specially draw the curtains closed. Originally, it had been so that Master would not feel uncomfortable from being struck by excessive sunlight while moving around during the daytime. As a result, I would always close the curtains before going to sleep and open them once again after waking at night.

However, Master never moved around during the daytime, so this action was unnecessary. Moreover, there were numerous windows in the ancient castle. Handling every single one was a fairly time-consuming task. It would be better to use that time to tidy up the surroundings.

After all, the ancient castle was severely lacking in staff at the moment, since Master truly detested people very much. Even with the rationale that Miss Tong required companions, he was only willing to let us hire one maid and one chef.

I opened the study door. The other person was already awake and was currently standing next to the window to look outside. “Master, your meal is ready.”

The other person turned around and coldly stated, “Call me X, Endelis. The next time you address me incorrectly, I won’t correct you. You can just leave.”

“My sincere apologies, Mas—X.”

Chapter 8: Kenshin, Part Two – translated by Evangeline

Doll, whose eyes were shut, was shocked. After she opened her eyes, she gaped with her mouth wide open in a very un-queenly way. It took her some time before she could speak. “Xiao Xiao Lan? Xiao Long Ming? Why are you here?”

“To take Doll-jiějie back.” Xiao Long Ming grinned.

Doll panicked and yelled, “Idiot! Which idiot let you guys come here?”

“Kenshin and Nan Gong Zui-gēgē,” Xiao Xiao Lan replied honestly.

Doll’s face distorted from anger. “Those two idiots! When I get home, they are done for!”

“Do you think you can go home, Your Majesty?” All the kidnappers laughed.

Chapter 7: Kenshin, Part One – translated by Evangeline

I was not surprised at all as I watched Xiao Xiao Lan kiss Wicked by force.

Everyone thought that Xiao Xiao Lan’s personality resembled that of her mother’s, but I knew better. Xiao Xiao Lan was too stubborn to relent, just like a carbon copy of her father. This also meant that she was extremely clingy and never believed that she could ever fail. So, when Xiao Xiao Lan announced that she would marry Wicked, I immediately started preparing her dowry. I just didn’t expect to wait this long.

I forgot the fact that humans have to live for about twenty years before they get married.

My name is Kenshin. I’m not sure exactly where this name came from. Well, I think that since Prince has been calling me that from the beginning, and I knew nothing beside the fact that I was the Demon King, I believed Kenshin to be my name. In truth, I don’t know what my name is because I am an artificial intelligence, a computer application with self-awareness.

Chapter 6: Wicked, Part Two – translated by raylight

“Zhuo-gēgē, when Xiao Xiao Lan grows up, will you marry her?” Xiao Xiao Lan asked me with innocent and adorable eyes, and she had a giant ribbon on her head.

“It’s Zhuo-shūshu.” I corrected her patiently, trying to resist the churning inside my heart. What Xiao Xiao Lan just said was almost identical to what Xiao Lan had said in the past.

I thought that I had already stopped caring about Xiao Lan’s marriage to another person. However, once I heard Xiao Xiao Lan’s words and saw that pair of eyes that were so similar to Xiao Lan’s, I felt as though my scars had been re-opened. I… fled in defeat from Xiao Xiao Lan’s house when Xiao Xiao Lan was just seven years old. (Thankfully, the eight-year-old Xiao Long Ming was already very sensible and was skilled at taking care of his little sister.)

I thought about things in the past as I stepped onto the streets of Infinite City. Just now, I had another huge quarrel with Gui and then took the chance to run away. However, I quite understood that for a long time now, Gui hadn’t been able to ignite my wrath. What I was afraid of was that Xiao Xiao Lan would be coming over in a short while.

According to what Prince said just now, Xiao Xiao Lan had always been looking for me, for her Zhuo-gēgē.

Chapter 5: Wicked, Part One – translated by Lily and lucathia

My real name is Zhuo Ling Bin, but in Second Life, I go by Wicked.

Second Life is a virtual game developed more than ten years ago. However, due to overdeveloped artificial intelligence, the game spiraled out of control. Since then, the government has explicitly limited the artificial intelligence level in games. In other words, Second Life, also called the Forbidden Game, is still the world’s most immersive game, especially since nearly half of the NPCs developed self-awareness. If not for the Dictator of Life’s aid in overseeing this place, I have no idea what sort of devastating consequences this game would have resulted in.

Although in reality, this game has already had dire repercussions. More than ten years ago, the developer of Second Life, Long Dian, contracted a terminal illness. Terrified of the idea of death, he even used the world’s most intelligent computer, the Dictator of Life, to threaten the entire world!

That particular event had huge consequences, including making Second Life spiral out of control forever, turning it into a world of only NPCs. However, the biggest consequence to me was that I lost my most precious person.

Feng Lan, my Xiao Lan, was Prince, the person who led everyone to stop Long Dian at that time.
