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.”
