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.

Chapter 3: Xiao Xiao Lan, Part Two – translated by Nausicaä

I felt as though I had suddenly been struck by lightning. I knew the name “Xiao Lan” all too well. Growing up I had often heard this nickname, because everyone called her that. She was my mom, Xiao Lan.

That figure rushed from the city gates to stand beside Wicked, and only then was I able to see his appearance. He was an elf with snow-white short hair, eyes the color of wine, and an exceedingly beautiful face. A tiara rested upon his forehead, and hanging by his waist was a black dao…The village chief was right. A guy this beautiful would certainly be chased by women endlessly.

A look filled with emotion and nostalgia appeared on that beautiful elf’s face, and he said, “Long time no see.”

“Yes.” Wicked gazed at the beautiful elf as if he would never tire of looking at him.

Chapter 3: Xiao Xiao Lan, Part One – translated by Nausicaä

Aiya, that pigheaded Long Ming! What’s he doing, smiling at those two males like an infatuated idiot… Doesn’t he know just how potent his current appearance is? Just wait until the Elf or that Demon Overlord set their sights on taking him for themselves; I sure as hell am not going to go save him.

Ah! I forgot to introduce myself. I’m Min Lan Lan, but everyone calls me Xiao Xiao Lan. That’s because my mom is called Feng Lan, so she’s Xiao Lan, and since I’m her daughter, that makes me Xiao Xiao Lan!

Thinking of this, I couldn’t help but shake my head again. Never mind that my mom’s ability to choose names is subpar, but even that dad of mine, Min Gui Wen, who’s reputed to have an IQ of 200, fails in an equally shameful manner when it comes to picking names. Thanks to that, even though I’m fifteen this year, I’m still being called Xiao Xiao Lan.1

Just how small am I? In any case, I’m a little bigger than my mom— I’m an A-cup! Seeing that beautiful elven bishie and cool demon hottie actually give a fine fifteen-year old maiden like me the cold shoulder and instead fawn over Long Ming just made me feel so incomparably…jealous! Considering this, I resentfully shouted, “Let’s go, Long Ming, you pig head.”
