Chapter 78.3 : Reader: Why give up treatment?

The bright arrow shot towards Xiu like a meteor and the force of its passage even cut through space, shortening the gap between it and Xiu. Xiu stretched out his hand to take another arrow from behind him but he only grabbed empty air – his arrows had run out!

“Xiu!/ Little Master!/ My Lord!”

Corellon’s arrow hit Xiu’s left shoulder. If Xiu had not been able to quickly dodge, it would have hit his heart. Xiu pulled the blood-stained arrow out of his shoulder and threw it on the ground. The cold expression on his face seemed to say that this item had nothing to do with him. Corellon did not give him the opportunity to deal with his wound. The remaining elf gods formed an array and Corellon lifted her bow, aiming for Xiu.

Suddenly, a strange thing happened. The golden branches at the center of the altar spread out and grew until, to the shock of the elven gods, they reached out to Xiu and wrapped him up. A soft tip of a branch climbed up to Xiu’s shoulder and secreted a drop of golden sap, instantly healing Xiu completely. Corellon fingers in the bow began to tremble; she could not shoot because the silver-haired elf was protected by the Tree of Life and if she shot at him, the Tree of Life would be harmed.

It was as though a pause button had been pressed. Du Ze looked at the Tree of Life that was being sticky to Xiu and at the elves who were transfixed in shock. He suddenly felt a profound sympathy for them.

What is the protagonist’s halo? This is what is called the protagonist’s halo.

From the present situation, it can be deduced that this Tree of Life that was copied by the Tower of God is the Tree of Life that Xiu had freed of its pollution. Obviously, such a Tree of Life will naturally turn to Xiu. The elven gods at the altar looked at each other then put down their bows. The goddess took down the shield and walked over to Xiu.

“I am the leader of the elven gods, Corellon.”

Corellon introduced herself to all, with the usual coldness of the elf race.

“I will let you go. No more fighting. This is the will of the Tree of Life.”

Xiu interrupted her speech when he saw that the elf was going to end her own life.

“Do you know the God of Creation?”

Du Ze did not realize that Xiu was more perceptive than him. In fact, Du Ze had pinned all his hopes on the tsundere god of light and did not expect to learn much from the other gods. According to what he knew of the Creator God, except for Bael and god of light, it is unlikely that the gods of the other races have seen the God of Creation. But in this Du Ze was mistaken. He opened his eyes wide when he saw the goddess of the elves nod.

“I have seen father God,” said Corellon.

This must be the so-called “from the depths of despair I saw a glimmer of hope.” His surprise was so great that Du Ze was rendered speechless. Xiu glanced at Du Ze and then asked: Can you tell us?”

Corellon looked Xiu up and down. Her eyes were on the gold branches encircling him when she said: “You are recognized by the Tree of Life; you are the elf king of this time. Indeed, you are qualified to know.”

“I am the first elf queen. During the first era, we joined the war between the angels and demons and the war continued until the second era. We allied with the angels but in the face of such powerful demons, it would have been difficult for us to survive that war. Luckily, the father god gave help to my family.” Corellon’s voice was icy cold and only thawed when she spoke of the God of Creation. “He showed up in front of me and taught us a quick way to improve our strength.”

Wait, this means …

“If we remove the excess feelings from our hearts, we will not indulge in idle thoughts and our strength will grow rapidly.”

So it was under the guidance of the Creator God that you decided to throw your superfluous feelings to the Tree of Life?

Enoch scratched his head and frankly uttered his thoughts: “There seems to be something wrong …”

Corellon ignored Enoch’s speech and continued: “That was the father god’s gift to the elf race whose strength was increased and thus became the dominant force in the second era.”

Du Ze almost fell down on his knees. He had been puzzled by the way the elves, who revered the Tree of Life, threw their negative feelings into it as though it was a rubbish bin, thereby creating the “pollution.” These were the Creator God’s instructions! He realized that the “Du Ze conspiracy theory” is right. The God of Creation did this with malicious intent. What shocked Du Ze was that the elves didn’t even notice that something was wrong!

In spite of this very important piece of information, they still don’t know too many details about the God of Creation. Du Ze could not help but ask: “What does the Creator God look like?”

Corellon looked at Du Ze as if this was the first time she had discovered the existence of Du Ze. Du Ze was very accustomed to this. In fact, to all of the people in this world, as long as the protagonist is there, everyone else becomes a sort of flesh-colored background, unnoticeable. Corellon glanced at Du Ze. At first she seemed to think that Du Ze was a minor character and wasn’t going to bother to speak to him but when she was about to retract her gaze, it was as if she suddenly became aware of something. She stared at Du Ze with an expression of shock on her face.

“You- ”

Corellon’s words were cut off as a spider dagger slit her throat from behind. A large amount of blood sprayed out. Corellon fell down limply and the person standing behind her was revealed. It was the spider goddess.

In order to become the Supreme God, the spider goddess came to the Tower of God, but she hadn’t expected that elf race trial would be like this. She had a bad feeling about this elf race simulation. When she saw the elf gods, her premonition of bad things to come came true – Corellon hated her and would certainly not let her go. Fortunately, the silver-haired elf attracted her attention and the spider goddess, who had been lurking nearby waiting for the right moment, finally got her chance to strike a blow.

It happened so fast that no one, including Xiu, was not able to react in time before Corellon was assassinated by the spider goddess. Du Ze watched the beautiful elf fall in front of him and, at the moment that she fell, Corellon’s lips moved. If Du Ze hadn’t learned lip-reading because of his weak hearing, he would have missed her words.

Father … God?

After the leader of the elven gods fell down the green-colored portal appeared at the altar. The spider goddess immediately rushed towards it. She was fast but Xiu moved even faster. The Tree of Life seemed to feel Xiu’s fury and its long branches stretched out to capture the spider goddess. The dark elf’s advantage lies in concealment and assassination. Because of her sense of awe at being directly underneath the Tree of Life, the spider goddess just ran up to the altar and was caught by the golden branches.

Xiu wanted to capture the spider goddess alive, but the spider goddess had just been captured by the branches when a light broke through the void and ruthlessly pierced the spider goddess’ head. Her red blood and gray brains spilled on the ground. They all turned to look at the source of the attack and saw that, unexpectedly, Corellon was still not dead – how great must her hatred be for her to find the strength to lift her bow and shoot that arrow as she lay dying?

Seeing that the spider goddess died by her hand, Corellon smiled joyfully then fell down and transformed into a spot of light that disappeared. There was no time for the group to gawk at the shocking events; the surrounding plants began to wither at a rate visible to the naked eye and the place was about to collapse soon.

The elf goddess was dead and she will not appear again until the checkpoint is reset. Watching a valuable source of information disappear was not easy for Du Ze. Du Ze and Xiu walked into the green light of the portal and, right up to the point that they left, the black-haired youth kept on staring at the spot where the elf goddess vanished, his eyes full of astonishment.

  1. I just will say this, I have my theory…there is already a translated answer, I don´t have the time to read the theories, now I´m just want to get there…but I need to walk the way to it!

  2. Father..god? It has something to do with du ze power as a reader that influenced the author?! I just hope they both would not be separated. Xiu just had to tied du ze up with his tentacles and made him his prisoner LOL

  3. I think that the Creator God is the author. Technically speaking, their world is a book written by the novelist, and we as readers know everything that happens in the book is determined by the author’s hand. Everything is due to the author’s whims. Think about it, the world in the novel wouldn’t exist without the creator, and who is the one who wrote the novel?

    My opinion is that Du Ze is an interloper there. A “god” in the sense that he is from the same world as the author is, and so would have similar benefits from being a god when he enters into the world of the novel. For example, the 0-point restore meaning he can’t age or be killed, and his ability to decipher all of the world’s languages as a “reader”. Basically, the laws of the world identified him as being on a higher plane of existence and are trying to wipe him out? (Which is why Du Ze’s hand started disappearing a couple chapters ago?)

    The other theory I have is that Du Ze is essentially the and evil god. Not necessarily because of his actions in the novel world itself, but because of his comment that made the author change the book’s plot. Thinking on it, Du Ze had the power to influence Xiu’s future and therefore, the entire future of the novel world, though perhaps not directly. This is more than enough for him to be considered a god.

    Anyway, just wanted to comment, even though no-one’s probably going to read this but ahhhhh I love this story so much! Thanks for translating!

  4. I think the god of creation and the god who come to elf and gnome is different, maybe evil god???. He is killed or seal god of creation and pretending to be one. So the one who want the world destruction is the evil god. And duze is maybe the evil god. (My bad english😓)

  5. Didn’t the Author of Mixed Blood knew that the War of Gods and the tower were going to happen? Because he was talking to his friend in one of the chapters and he told his friend that the War of Gods era and the Tower was coming. I suspect that Author is the God of Creation because Du Ze can’t be the God of Creation maybe the Elf Queen saw that Du Ze has a similar aura as the God of Creation (if the God of Creation is the Author of Mixed Blood then my theory might be plausible)

    Thank you for the chapter! Liked the shocked Du Ze picture btw 😂😂😂😂

  6. Wait, wait, wait. If Du Ze’s speculations are right and the final boss is the God of Creation. Does that mean he has to die in order for Xiu to win? 😱 Im just counting on that HE, otherwise I’d be quitting right here.

    * Also @translator thank you very much for your hard work.

  7. Ooooh what if Du Ze time travels :0 and that’s why Xiu can’t find him because he jumps out of the time line he lives in. And then events are set in an infinite loop?

    (Don’t mind me I’m just excited. It’s probably not that xD)

  8. I’m guessing the creator god is the author of mixed blood and they look similar because they’re from the same country

  9. Um … Maybe Du Ze is a clone of God Father? for that reason the elven Goddess was so surprised? o.O

    Um … ¿Tal vez Du Ze es un clon de Dios Padre? por eso la Diosa elfa estaba tan sorprendida? o.O

  10. Oh no that ominous what does Corellon mean by that 😨but at least we have some information on the god of creation
    It seems that Du Ze probably carries the same energy of this god especially cause of his 0 point restore
    Corellon is old and she probably remembers that energy (or he has Du Zes appearance uwah 😱)

    Yeah but hes at fault for most of the races troubles no? Like the gnomes disappearing and the blackening of the elves
    Hmm hes like a genie giving them what they want but twisting up their words and screwing them over

    Thank you for the translation!

  11. Ooooooohhhhhh aaaahhh *mtbd omg. What?? The rules are in play again.. hnnnngghh Thank you very much for this <e

  12. Well, that was unexpected! If DuZe looks like the god of creation…maybe he’ll be possessed by him later on or maybe awaken some weird memories that he never thought he had before?
    Thank you for the chapter!!!

  13. Oh man oh man my mind is reeling @_@ Father god? Maybe when Du Ze entered this world he’s always been surrounded by an aura of energy like how a magic caster casts magic on someone and the magic lingers on thenperson casted on. So, if we go by that train of thought perhaps that’s the reason why animals fear him, why many feel intimidated by him for unknown reasons and why the first Elf Queen mistakened him as the “father god” aka the god of creation is because he carries some of that “aura” of the father god.

    But! That’s only if the “father god” is the same term for the god of the creation of another name for him. If it isn’t, and the “father god” and the god of creation are two different statutes/gods… perhaps father god is the term for the author….or that it really is refering to Du Ze who really is a god…

    Also what IS up with the god of creation? Why would a god who’s the top act so maliciously to instruct the elves to act in such a self destructing method? Does he just want to see the world burn, or is there another reason behind it? If he wants to destroy the world/other races… is he the mastermind behind the whole gnome fiasco where the god of light gave them a time machine? And the god of light was acting under his instructions? Then!!! The vision Du Ze saw at the end where Xiu ends up losing his most important person a.k.a him, the god of creation did that so Xiu would destroy the world in exchange for him because he has the power of a supreme god to do so, but it was all a trick to get what he wants- everything destroyed.

    I’ll cut my rambling here. I’m guessing we’ll get more clues with the gnome trial, and followed by the angel one being last probs. Beast…probably is up next I’m guessing?

    1. The mystery behind the creator god is one of the biggest puzzles of the story. Thanks for the comment.

    2. That’s actually plausible, considering that this whole plot is a novel. Authors write with the intention to finish the story. If the author already had a preconceived idea of ending it as a tragedy, then all the events until now, were just a build up to set the final stage. What I want to know is what’s Du Ze’s role in all of this. We all know that Du Ze is not the author, meaning he is not the creator god. And the fact that up until now, Du Ze had almost no hand in changing the plot reinforces this. But from now on we can infer that there is some connection between the author and Du Ze. What is Du Ze’s purpose?

    3. Even though Du Ze is not the author of Mixed Blood; Let’s not forget that he kinda ‘fathered’ the twist of the blackening protagonist due to him being a black-powder fan.

      So, even though all he did was writing a few hate-comments; those were the reason why his favourite author abandoned the happy stallion protagonist.

      Maybe, just maaaaybe… Du Ze could have some godly relations in this world 🌚

    4. Didn’t the God of Light say what is Du Ze purpose of coming to this world already? Maybe just like the God of Light, the God of Creation is afraid/ or trying to get rid of Xiu by using Du Ze. Though obviously Du Ze already rejected this.

  14. DO YOU HEAR THAT SOUND?! YEP! IT’S THIS SILLY READER GOT MIND BLOWN!
    *thinks further*
    *inhales sharply*
    I SMELL MORE CONSPIRACY!!!

  15. Hmm throwing “Father . . . God” at Du Ze

    Well, he did influence the story by typing the comment that started all this

  16. it was was a rubbish -> doubled

    Corellon was still now dead -> i’m sorry, is it supposed to be “not dead”?

    There no time -> There [insert to be] no time

    1. His poor little chrysanthemum always gets 0-point restored, too. No adjustment since it always reverts back to its pre-bullied state.

    2. Doesn’t that make it more pitiful? 😂😂😂 And if the bullying is as intense as tentacle-senpai’s harmonious health education…
