Chapter 57.2 – Reader: You can’t disappear.
“I will take some dragons with me and join the Battle of the Gods.” Another red-haired man bluntly said. Behind his body was a red dragon’s tail. The red-haired god faced the dragon valley and shouted: “Who wants to leave the island with me?”
There was a commotion among the dragons. Some of them, mostly the young ones, were tempted while the older dragons, especially the amethyst dragon, wrinkled their eyebrows in disapproval. But still, the amethyst dragon respectfully said: “Lord Garyx, the dragon race is in a crisis right now and the loss of even a single dragon is a big loss for the entire dragon race.”
Garyx, the dragon god of destruction, sneered: “Haven’t you been holed up in this place long enough? The Battle of the Gods has started. Do you think that if you stay here and refuse to fight, the others will leave us alone?”
The amethyst dragon was silent for a moment before stubbornly saying: “I hope that moment won’t come too soon.”
The amethyst dragon’s attitude angered Garyx, whose face became cold. The amethyst dragon was instantly pressed down on the ground by an immense pressure until it could not move. The dragon god of justice said warningly: “Garyx!”
Of course, the mad god Garyx paid no heed to this warning, but he stopped when the dragon god Bahamut coughed lightly. Garyx had no fear of Lendys because the low-level god of justice is weak, but Bahamut is a mid-level god and not someone he can provoke.
Garyx glared indignantly at the amethyst dragon. “Do you think the dragon’s current situation is good? If we win the Battle of the Gods and become the Supreme God, then we can definitely find a solution to the dragon’s reproduction problem! This is all for my Lord Io!”
“The Lord … lord god…” murmured the amethyst dragon. The nine-faced dragon god Io is the chief deity worshipped by the dragons. When he heard about Io, the amethyst dragon began to question himself and glanced at the last person in the group, a young girl with a crystal horn. She is Aasterinian, the dragon’s goddess of creation and the messenger of Io.
Aasterinian, seeing the amethyst dragon’s eyes on her, blinked then grinned. She looked very lively and naughty.
“I have no idea what the Lord thinks,” she said. “Our Lord let us come to protect you, that is all.”
Garyx snorted. The amethyst dragon finally calmed down and was just about to speak when a change came without warning.
The “day” suddenly became dark. The island is surrounded by seawater and its light comes from the luminous plankton. But now the sea that surrounded them became the sea of undead souls – from the void emerged bones and skeletons that covered the island.
Du Ze stared above him. The sea was still there. Those white bones in the deep blue water looked very eerie. Why did the bones give him the same feeling as the sea of undead souls in the reverse side of the continent… ?
The seas filled with bones. The towns and cities that overlapped each other collided, and there were countless casualties1 . The light god looked at everything that was projected and a chill spread from his heart. He went inside a room full of runes and picked up a slender scepter. This scepter represents the position of the ruler of the gods. As long as he has this scepter, he can destroy all the gods who move against him.
The light god held the scepter as spoke as though he was talking to himself.
“Why did the two sides of the continent overlap with each other?… What’s wrong with the rules? … Out of control?… Why are you out of control? … That man … Damn!”
The light god gripped the scepter tightly, angry and fearful of some unseen presence.
“Quickly let me lower the boundary. I must destroy that heresy before it is too late.”
The island suddenly appeared in the middle of the sea of undead souls and became chaotic. Xiu hugged Du Ze and let the black dragon take them away from the island. He had a hunch that if he did not leave, he would never again have the chance to escape.
The black dragon, carrying Xiu and Du Ze, did not fly up but went to the center of the island. Along the way, the black dragon explained to the two humans how they could leave. The reason why the island could exist under the sea was because the silver dragons opened a space under the sea and transferred the island to that space. The outermost layer of seawater functioned as a barrier. In the beginning, dragons were free to go in and out of the barrier. But with the decline of the dragon population, in order to prevent the young dragons from leaving, the older dragons decided to change the barrier so that it would only freely allow entrance to the island. To leave, they have to get permission.
In their case, of course, it is impossible to get permission from the amethyst dragon. Therefore, the black dragon decided to get to the root of the problem. The three of them will go to the center of the island where Xiu can change the space barrier’s properties. Hilda’s spear is the key to the spatial magic spell.
Muir transformed into this humanoid form and pointed to a silver-blue pillar. “After you insert the dragon spear here, you can make it open up a passageway. Then we can use that passageway to leave.”
Xiu did not hesitate to insert the dragon spear into the hole in the column. Outside, the chaos has subsided and once the dragons have organized themselves, they will surely go to the center of the island to check the situation and strengthen the barrier.
The dragon spear fit the hole in the pillar perfectly. The magic spell embedded in it lit up and blew Xiu’s blond hair off his forehead. A stream of information flowed into Xiu’s brain, including how to set up a barrier and how to close it.
Muir saw a spiral of cracks appear in space. It looks like Xiu has opened a passageway. He looked back at Xiu and saw the blond youth’s smile.
How can that smiled be described? It was like the smile of a child who caught a dragonfly and was pulling off its wings while he watched with glee as the poor struggling creature died. The thought made Muir shudder, but when he looked at Xiu again, the blond youth’s expression was normal. It was as though he had just imagined that strange smile from before.
“What’s the matter?”
“Nothing …” Muir ignored that strange fancy and said: “Let’s go.”
The three people went into the space crack together. Just before they left, Xiu said to Du Ze: “I made a cage.”
“I caged a bunch of lizards and threw them a bone. Do you think lizards like bones?” said Xiu.
Du Ze shook his head. Isn’t it dogs who like bones?
“I also think they won’t like it,” Xiu said with a smile.
Du Ze wanted to ask Xiu what he meant when the whole island suddenly shook, as though a giant was stomping on it. The violent shaking made Du Ze fall into the crack. He didn’t know what hit him because he immediately fainted.
The amethyst dragon looked at the bones outside the barrier. It seems that some of the undead have seen the dragons inside the barrier. In this case, the dragon race can only leave.
Suddenly, a skeleton crossed the barrier and fell from the air. The amethyst dragon stared at it as it fell to pieces. The dragon couldn’t believe his eyes as more and more skeletons came dropping down from the barrier. They began to attack the dragons. Although one flaming dragon breath can incinerate a skeleton, the number of skeletons that were falling was almost drowning the entire island.
Deep in the sea of undead souls, the dragon’s breath disturbed an evil force. His face was dry and terrifying, his skin rust-red, his hair thick and dark green, and he wore a black cloak. The undead have no god, but this horror was something that even the gods feared. He has many names – life hater, death reaper, and so on. Though he is not god, everyone knows him – the god of death Louis.
The god of death looked in the direction of the island and laughed.
“Chirp! Chirp! Chirp!”
Du Ze didn’t want to quarrel with the fat chirp, but a sharp object poked his eyebrows. The pain woke Du Ze and he opened his eyes to see a blood-stained machete slash down.
Some silly, cute person was frightened out of his wits and quickly rolled to the side, dodging the killing blow.
When he had finished rolling, he saw that he was in a desert. Du Ze put some distance between him and the other person before examining his attacker.
It is a beautiful girl. Her most prominent feature are the two red fox ears on her head. When Du Ze saw the red and white tail, a silly, cute person finally realized that he was looking at a fox.
We’ll always be together.
Even if I die, I will take you with me to hell.

I know this is *very* late, but I gotta say that is one unhealthy relationship. Even if Du Ze is okay with it.
honestly ever since what the dragon form xiu did to Duze ive been getting really bad negative vibes
Lmao why is the god of death named louis?
This doesn’t seem to get cleared up in the story later on… but did Xiu kill off the Dragon Race? The Chaos Continent and it’s Reverse Side combining was something that Xiu didn’t seem to intentionally do. But here he hints that he is the one who brought Louis to the Dragon’s hiding spot, causing their demise. Was Xiu the one who killed the Dragon Race?
Yeah I believe so. Xiu is scary
Looks to me like he messed with the barrier to expose the dragon island to someone who would love to kill them, which he knew would be their end after the sea of bones appeared. That’s what his evil grin was about.
Sorry but I can’t take him seriously with that name every time I read it I think of drawing with Louie
Ah…! Wait he randomly fell into a crack away from Xiu??!! 😱
Ohhh time to wake up Beastkin bloodline brothers and sisters!
Your not going to separate them are you like come on
Wait. How did Louis and the gnome have a child?
Louis took a gnome and used magic to somehow turn him half undead, half gnome. The resulting hybrid was his “child” or creation.
What the f*** kind of name for a god of death is Louis?
Cause he isn’t exactly a god ?
Maybe the author is a fan of Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire.
Thinking the same as Reika
Jeez, why are so many of the beings asking for Xiu’s wrath. Do they not like life? Just leave Du Ze alone and you’ll be fine, creatures of this fantasy world.
Ooh im very intrigued by whats happening now. I guess we’re going to learn a lot of lore in the following chapters.
What Xiu said was very ominous • ~ •
These two always getting separated!! Hopefully not for long and yes were heading towards a beastman arc if the fox girl is any indication
Thank you for the update!
Uh oh Beastmen, looks like you’re next.
Ooh and thanks for the great translation!
I just noticed that Grandpa Louis love a male gnome? So how they make gnome-undead mix child? Is it already explained in the earlier chapters? If it is, can someone remind me which chapter? Thank you!
In Chapter 9.2 Du Ze explains what happened with Louis and the gnome.
OMG. Grandfather of the Xiu, God of death Luis The Lich !!! >u< It got good! O.
Some separation makes the heart grow fonder.. but in this case, separation makes the Moe Lord become more yandere!!
Thank you for the chapter! Took a pic of the gods names 😁 for future reference
Aaaaaand they separated again but no worries! Moe Lord always finds Du Ze and next up is the beastkin race yay~!
Although when Xiu said Lizards and cage I think he was refering to the Dragons lol welp bye bye dragons
Did they separate again? (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ Wonder if the dragons will come out of hiding or be annihilated by the undead?
Welp this next species is dead. Anyone who dares lift a finger against duze suffers extinction..
Thank you for the updates!
Xiu is scary. T_T
Xiu will rampage again due to Du Ze being separated from him.
Separate again…. Why both of you always separate??? Beast race… Where almost all or all of them afraid of DuZe… What will DuZe do?? Oh.. Xiu grandfather come… The undead Attack dragon race… Xiu black box become more Yandere…
“Xiu black box become more Yandere” Lol black box Yandere…JAJAJAJAJA I LOVED
The black box always manages to surprise me. I was NOT expecting that.
Are they seperated now?
this romeo & juliet really can’t be together for long
