Chapter 2.2 The Reader and Protagonist Definitely Have to Be in True Love

Chapter 2.2 – Author: … Understood.

Previous Chapter      Table of Contents      Next Chapter

Du Ze felt the blood rising in his throat. In the next chapter, the Temple of Light’s people want to kill the protagonist but they have no experience with fighting the undead. They cut off the protagonist’s head, hacked his body apart, then threw the remains into the burial mound. However, for the undead, the “dead” state is normal. In a sense, they are immortal. Thus, for the protagonist the things that would kill a mortal are ineffective.

That night when the protagonist regained his skeletal form, he looked at his bony body and felt very confused. Rose went to the burial mound to mourn her first love and was scared silly when she saw him resurrected. After the protagonist confessed to her1, Rose promised to help him return to the school to clear things up.

Du Ze swallowed down the blood that was about to gush out from his mouth. Even the author that wants to write an original story still has a limit. This story development is probably going to be like this: after the hero and the cute girl run away together, they look for a place to quietly become strong, then they return to wreak their vengeance on the Temple of Light. Ah, why did he not realize that a “girl next door” type like Rose is also a good harem candidate?

Then Yi Ye Zhi Qiu immediately dealt a blow to Du Ze’s hopes.

The protagonist waited for Rose but he was betrayed. The people who appeared were from the Temple of Light and this time they were prepared. The priests who were sent were all sworn to purify the undead. However, the cemetery was an advantageous spot for the undead protagonist. Although he had not yet mastered his Necromancy skills, his instincts were good. Seeing a horde of zombies rise up, all of the people present were increasingly sure that the protagonist is surely evil. Despite everything that happened, the protagonist still cannot bear to kill them and simply escaped. But now the whole continent is hunting him down.

In the constant pursuit and escape, the protagonist encountered danger after danger. The soul of the protagonist was stricken with deep pain. He was betrayed again and again. Even if he had just rescued a woman from a gang of thugs and escorted her home, when she saw the skull under the hero’s hood, she did not hesitate to sell him out to mercenaries.

If not for the undead’s “immortality” skill, the protagonist would have died thousands and thousands of times over. When he was at his lowest point, Daniel, one of his earlier allies, rescued him. After all the betrayals he had experienced, the protagonist had become paranoid but Daniel seemed not to mind his indifference and suspicion. Many times Daniel helped the protagonist escape from mercenaries.

Good brother! Du Ze is ready to bow down to worship Daniel. Luckily there is a good little brother, otherwise the author might make the protagonist’s situation even worse.

But Yi Ye Zhi Qiu immediately dealt a fatal blow to Du Ze.

Just when the protagonist had finally let go of his suspicion and thanked Daniel, he found that his hiding place was surrounded by the people from the Temple of Light. Daniel, revealing a simple and honest smile, said: Xiu, sorry, the best thing you can do now is to die.

Du Ze’s blood finally spurted from his mouth.

Author! You! Win!


With a magician’s staff in hand, Xiu went back in high spirits. When he was in school, he knew that Daniel’s family was very poor and that he has not been able to afford a better staff. Xiu’s hand on the staff tightened. Under his hood the skull was expressionless but he wanted to smile. Would Daniel be happy when he received this item?

How long has it been since he wanted to smile? He thought that he had been abandoned by everyone but someone told him he wasn’t alone. In that instant, there was salvation.

Back at the hut, Daniel looked very flustered and worried but relaxed when he saw Xiu and said, voice loud: “You came back!”

Xiu didn’t want Daniel to worry about him. His identity hasn’t been discovered.

However, Daniel did not talk to him. Instead, one after another, the Temple of Light’s knights and priests came out of the shadows to surround them. Their robes and armor had the number “12” on them. Both the humans and their equipment were clearly higher level and more dangerous than the previous enemies Xiu had fought.

It was rumored that the Temple of Knight had 12 elite knights, the strongest of all their forces. Even the weakest of them was strong enough to kill Xiu.

The last person to come out of the shadows was a familiar stranger. Saint Vivian looked at the figure whose whole body was hidden inside a black robe. This is the first time she has seen a lich. The books described it accurately, the whole body gave off a strong, dark aura of death. Although it was not as disgusting as the histories had said, Vivian was still repulsed. Vivian’s thin lips parted and she spoke to the lich, according to the bishop the undead is called–

“Evil Xiu2, this time you will not escape.”

Hearing the voice of Vivian, Xiu turned around and glance at the opposite side of the girl where a team of knights was protecting Daniel. Daniel was aware that he was spotted. Facing Xiu and smiling the same simple and honest smile he wore when the original, human Xiu would help him bully his seniors, he spoke.

“Xiu, sorry, the best thing you can do now is to die.”

It’s strange to know that he was betrayed again but he wasn’t hurt or sad. Even his anger cooled. There was no pain in his heart, either – No.

The skeleton opened its mouth and began to laugh.

His heart had been melted away, hadn’t it?

The blue soul fire leaped in the black holes of his eye sockets, cold and without a single trace of heat.

Du Ze Hp
Du Ze trolled the author, so the author trolled him. Knockout!
  1. A love confession? Or just friendship? Not sure.
  2. She actually said “evil disciple” but I thought it would be too confusing since Xiu is not a disciple of anyone. I think she meant “evil descendant/disciple of Louis” since that’s what they think he is but Louis was not mentioned by name.

  1. Legit LOVE the black belly version so much more lol. Like finally no harem , action that gets diverted with the lolis or it gets kinda lame cuz of the Romance plus not being too heavy at the same time :p

    Pls rec me stuff like this ⛄

  2. Haha even though i feel quite bad for Xiu I absolutely love seeing the troller(forgot his name) being proven wrong because I hate how he thinks! I hate that he automatically considers women harem members and men as “good little brothers” and then also considers that good and it makes me think of him to be the cis white mysogynistic men. smh Gonna read and hope for charac development

    1. but its not really the MC’s fault cuz MC thinks hes reading another YY harem novel, that’s how the plots is in those novels, half passed and predictable! with 1000 golden fingers and a hundred little sisters, Pei!

    2. Erika Rhea Elisan

      Based on the context by previous chapters, he probably thought that what he’s reading is another YY harem novel where everyone falls in love with the MC, you really can’t blame him since all of the novels the author released is YY harem novel

    3. That’s such a westerner outlook to have considering you’re reading a Chinese web novel. Cis white male??? Come on….

    4. your comment is so silly… it was a YY novel, what else would he expect??? also, cis white men?? wow cronically online. touch some grass

  3. How cruel! Giving Du Ze hope with the little brother(Daniel) then throwing him down the cliff. Really ruthless! Why is the Author focusing on this blackend fan? What about the other fans? What are they?! A can of trash?! I’m angry on their behalf! Unless they think this is the original plot. Hmmm… Is this what the Author was going to write before Du Ze threw an arrow at him??

  4. This is the story that made me feel extra bad for all characters that suffer in any story. Blame the author! Lol

    I am so glad that Xiu gets his happy ending. Thanks for translating!

  5. It’s probably like calling him “Disciple of Evil.” Story seems fun so far. Thank you for translating!

  6. I can tell it’s that mixed blood it’s a good story, I would definitely read it and then I would add it to the list of books that left a scar in me or something, and reading about the author beating down Du Ze was really funny

  7. Honestly i think “Everyday Protagonist Want to Capture Me” is more interesting than this novel… I hope translator will release more update for that novel. This novel is boring. I read through the first few chapter and can’t still figure out wtf happened to plot…very dissapointed with this novel…

    1. ಠ_ಠ not sure anymore if you’re referencing or being serious but I am inclined to believe it is the former

    2. I see this is an old comment, but I hope you gave the rest of the story a try! It gets better. This is only chapter 2. It is difficult to figure out the direction of a complex plot in just 2 chapters. But I am glad you are a loyal reader, and also appreciate the translator’s skills even with other novels.

      (However, if you are attempting to imitate Du Ze, I have to say that Du Ze’s trolling is still a bit more skilled than yours.)

  8. hahahaha I feel that kind of novels where the protagonist offended the goddess of fortune is for masochist readers

  9. Awesome author!! 😆👍 Good job!! Also, that is actually pretty sad for the main character in that story. Although the author is trolling to the reader, I don’t like that much how he is causing that main character to suffer so much. I truly pity the guy since he now lost his heart. Well, when the reader goes into the story, he will give him lots of happiness! ☺️ Although he was the one who cause the main character to suffer though because of his troll…

  10. OMG I actually want to read this novel, not just excerpts from the protagonists’ pov. Hahaha.

    Thanks for the new novel.

  11. Lol, that’s what happens when you troll the author too much. The author trolls back. XD. Thank you for the chapter.

  12. Wait!
    It actually had turner for the better for us westerners!
    The difference between westerners and chinese!!
    Loving it! Thanks for the chapter!
