Chapter 59.1 – Protagonist: How can a person become a god?

The blood contract beast slowly vanished into thin air and Xiu pressed on Muir’s neck, letting him know that they should land.

The moment the black dragon landed, the long dragon spear pierced the chest of the desert bandit. The others could only watch in horror as the bandit who had trampled Du Ze became similar to a burst balloon. The bandit magically aged until his body was dried out. Finally, the bandit decayed into dust that was blown away by the desert wind. No blood was shed because the man on the dragon’s back had the same idea – that person’s clothes should not be stained with blood.

The desert bandits were in disarray. The black-turbaned leader dropped Nina and turned to flee, but the black dragon murmured the words of a spell which made an invisible force press down on them. The bandits were only able to run a few steps before the pressure forced them down on the sand, unable to even breathe. The black-turbaned bandit could not move. He watched as the Dragon Knight dismounted and gently picked up the black-haired youth, acting like a man who just recovered a treasure. When the blond youth looked at him, the black-turbaned bandit knew that his end was near.

“Quicksand burial.”

Hearing Xiu chanting a spell, Du Ze spat out a mouthful of sand and hurried to cry out: “Don’t – cough – don’t kill that – cough – fox!”

At first Xiu did not understand the meaning of “fox,” but then he saw Nina’s fox ears and tail and understood that Du Ze was referring to the beastkin girl. Xiu never rejected any of Du Ze’s requests so he excluded Nina from the spell.

The giant magic spell in the land of wind and dust was very powerful. The desert bandits’ struggles were futile as they sought to escape the sand underneath that was devouring them. The bandit wearing the black turban’s heart turned into ashes – such a potent spell was cast with just a few words; the man they had offended was not just a Dragon Knight but also a Mage God.

As the quicksand swallowed him up, the bandit in the black turban was still wondering: Why did they find the black-haired young man carrying a fox beastkin?

By the time Du Ze had finished wiping the sand from his glasses, all he could see was empty desert – all the desert bandits were gone. Nina, sitting on the sand, looked at the scene with horror. Du Ze felt something heavy on his head but it was just Xiu’s hand that was helping him to remove the sand in his hair.

“I always seem to lose you …”

Xiu’s voice was almost a sigh, heavy with worry. Du Ze looked at Xiu and said earnestly: “That was an accident and you can always find me.”

When he heard Du Ze’s words, Xiu’s mood seemed to lift a little. He grabbed the back of Du Ze’s neck and said, as though he was joking: “If I lose you again, next time I’ll make a cage and lock you up, how about that?”

Du Ze nodded tolerantly.1 The corners of Xiu’s mouth turned up in a smile.

Nina was totally unable to describe this sight. She just felt that the golden-haired man was terrifying. When the human riding the black dragon appeared, Nina thought that it was the god of death descending. The blond man’s overpowering killing intent and the black dragon were extremely frightening. But when the man was standing with Du Ze, Nina saw that he was a handsome young man with a gentle smile whose dazzling blond hair was like the sun that dispelled all evil, not a ghastly death god.

Why was there such a difference? Nina looked at Xiu and Du Ze; it seemed to her that the two were taboo: something that can’t be spoken about or touched.

Du Ze and Xiu spoke with each other a bit more then went to Nina together.

“Where is your tribe? We’ll send you back,” Xiu said to Nina.

Nina’s fox ears trembled. She looked at Du Ze then nodded cautiously.

After resting a bit, the black dragon spread its wings and flew to the west. As they flew, the desert slowly gave way to barren, rocky land. There were few plants and animals in this land. It seems that the wilderness in eastern part of the Chaos Continent, where the beastkin live, is a very harsh environment. Suddenly, Du Ze saw a ruined city appear in the distance. The city seemed very out of place in the wilderness and Nina said in amazement: “Why is there a city here?”

The black dragon circled the city. Du Ze looked down on the ruins and has a vague feeling that this place was familiar. When he saw the unfinished statue in the middle of the abandoned city, the foolish reader finally recognized it: Isn’t this one of the 72 cities, Dantalion?!

Xiu seemed to recognize the city, too. He made the black dragon land in the city. Du Ze looked at the humanoid idol with a square object on his face. His brain struggled to comprehend – Isn’t this city in the reverse side of the continent? Why is it here? Or was a new city being built on the Chaos Continent? Du Ze examined the idol carefully and dismissed his previous conjecture. The idol was in exactly the same condition that he and Xiu had seen when they passed by the city last time.

“When I was looking for you, I saw Halphas City on the way.” Xiu said in Du Ze’s ear: “There are many other demon cities here. It seems like the Chaos Continent and its reverse side have merged.”

The sea of undead souls has merged with the ocean and the 72 demon cities are now all over the Chaos Continent, only a merging of the two sides can explain all of this.

Why did the Chaos Continent suddenly merge with its reverse side? Du Ze looked at the unfinished idol and thought that only the gods know why.

Click, clack, click, clack.

The sound of footsteps came from behind the idol and the black dragon raised his head, alarmed. A person soon appeared. When he saw the black dragon he was momentarily speechless but as the newcomer’s eyes fell on Du Ze, he showed a familiar gentle smile.

“Looks like I found the right place.” The brown-haired man tapped the instrument in his hand and smiled as he spoke: “Long time no see, Mr. Du Ze. As long as I could find you, I know the little master must be near.”

Du Ze had no idea that he would meet Old John here, and when he saw Ariel looking at him from behind Old John, some silly, cute person’s brain seemed to freeze up as it lost a key part.

Old John put away the instrument and his eyes swept over the man on the back of the black dragon. When he saw the six-star metal bracelet on the young man’s wrist, Old John smiled happily, like an old man playing hide-and-seek with his grandchildren. “Little Master, I have found you.”

“I’m glad to see you, Old John.” Xiu looked at his faithful mechanical puppet: “What has happened to make you travel such a long distance to look for me?”

“I’m sorry Little Master, I’m afraid I have some bad news.” Old John said: “The Gnome Ruins have been taken over by the elf gods.”

According to Old John, after parting with Xiu that day, Old John led the dark elves back to the Gnome Ruins. They chose a place in the ruins to plant the Tree of Life then the dark elves began to build their new home. Everything was built in a methodical way, but one day the spider goddess appeared before them. She did not bother to conceal her malice towards the other gods.

The dark elves obeyed her commands and began to expel other beings. Almost all of the dark elves listened to her commands. Only Ariel followed Old John when he went looking for Xiu and Du Ze. They had been in the wilderness, following the locator instruments, when the black storm appeared. In order to avoid the storm, Old John and Ariel spent seven days in this city and unexpectedly found what they had been looking for.

By the time Old John had finished speaking, it was nearly dusk so they decided to rest for the night in the abandoned city. Old John quickly set up camp for them. Muir turned into his humanoid form and rested in a corner while Nina and Ariel stayed together. Xiu sat by the fire and seemed to be meditating. Du Ze lay tossing and turning on a nest of blankets; his headphones’ batteries ran out of charge not long after Old John finished speaking, so he did not know how Xiu had responded to Old John’s news.

When the continents merged, the gods descend. The reader who does not know the plot can only look at Yi Ye Zhi Qiu’s work from inside this world, afraid that the author will make another god descend. Du Ze watched the moons climb up in the sky. He could not sleep and could only stare as the two moons gradually overlapped each other.

  1. 配合 – so many meanings for this argh, but basically it means coordinate with or act in concert with

    1. I think that the hearing aid will restore back to the original state even after being “fixed” like how his eyes was cured but after his zero point restoration, he is restored back to his original state where he needs his glasses.

    2. If it were possible, if only Xiu could make a new pair of hearing aids for du ze 🙁

  1. Mysterious Mr. Milkshake.

    I’m just saying, Xiu better make that cage comfortable. I don’t wanna see the poor Du Ze suffer (T^T)

  2. Plot is getting interesting, but DuZe knows just the right things tp say to Ciu to make him happy.
    Xiu: “How bout i make a cage to put you in?”
    DuZe nods solemnly.
    Xiu smiles happily.

  3. I´m still wondering how is it that he didn´t activate his angel bloodline at that time in Skycity…it seems to be so easy to him to activate the others…well I think he will lead all the others god to fight back Bright…because Bright wants to get down…

  4. Thank you so much for your hard work. I really like your style of translating and the footnotes help a lot.

  5. Oh shoot, gods are descending here and there! I look forward to Xiu’s beastkin form~! 2 forms left then it would be eight races tonight but I pity Du Ze’s as***le.

    During the Dragon smutty scene even though I liked it, I was very worried for Du Ze because he was in great pain during that and my poor baby innocent Du Ze was scared too.

    (As I read this novel I get attached to Xiu and Du Ze lol, well I don’t know if this happens to some of the readers but every time I read a novel I would instantly get attach to the MC but it depends though in their personalities. Not all MCs I get attach to because sometimes some MCs are dumb or something)

    Btw thank you for the update!

  6. Thanks for the chapter!!

    I wonder if Xiu would agree to take back the Gnome Ruins and how he would react about Nina following them (or would she ask for it?)

  7. Thanks for the chapter!
    DuZe is so chill with being locked in a cage..
    Maybe Moe Lord should just invest in handcuffs, at least they can always hold hands and won’t be separated…

  8. Can i say i love human Xiu hes so badass!!
    Huh how interesting i would have thought the continents would have fit together like two pieces instead of merging
    I had been absolutely baffled as to why the sea of undead appeared especially since Xiu hadnt shifted
    I thought his ancestor had emerged!
    Hey old john and ariel showed up, theyre such faithful companions going to immediately find Xiu and Duze.

    Thank you for the translations!

  9. “If I lose you again, next time I’ll make a cage and lock you up, how about that?”

    —> Every yandere male lead seems to want to do this. Though to be fair to Xiu, he’s lost DuZe quite a number of times. DuZe is so tolerant though lol

  10. So, human form : DuZe, elf form : Ariel, dwarf Form: old John, dragon form: Muir, demon form: demon sister and demon from belial city, beastform: neni, lich : none, angle form? It’s just Lich form doesn’t have company… Or maybe later great great grandfather lich

    1. Gnome* l mean: dwarf not cute… Good for Nina to know that DuZe is not the person she can touch… She will be save if she not disturb their relationship

  11. *blinks and wipes eyes*

    *rereads section*

    “Underground dark elves. Spider goddess…”

    *Thinks to self: Is the author borrowing the storyline of the Legend of Drizzt???*

    1. Well, the author straight up admitted that the dragon gods were from D&D. Seeing as Frizzy is from the Forgotten Realms (a D&D universe) it makes sense for the spider queen, Lolth, to be the dark elves god.

  12. Thank you for the chapter!

    Du Ze smoothly handling his hubby’s Yandere lines. This silly cute person might have just registered it as a joke though.

    I wonder how Xiu will acquire his beast form.
