Song of Time - Dusk Awakening Verse - Chapter 29
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
It was a weird little today.
This idea came to Gian’s mind the moment she woke up.
He didn’t mean to let his mind wander because, at this moment, he was lying on his left side. His tentacles were cold, and there were bronze patterns with a sense of bumps on them. Gian leaned his head against the edge of the bed and looked at the old hard book, confused.
Didn’t Shane take the book away? Why did you suddenly come back to my room? He stared at the book cover in a daze. Did Shane ask someone to send it here? When did he come? He didn’t notice that someone had come into the room. Besides, where did he come in?
He subconsciously glanced at the window. In the late autumn and early winter, he didn’t open the window to sleep but still locked it. He turned his head to look at the door again. The door lock and frame were tightly attached, and there was no sign of opening it.
Was it sent here automatically? Gian thought of the scene that the old book suddenly appeared in a golden light a few days ago. Yes, last time, it was also in his bag for no reason that Shane saw it. He thought he had remembered it wrong. Now it seemed that it must have been passed into the backpack by itself. At the thought of this, Gian couldn’t help but chuckle.
“Nothing…”He opened the book and looked through it, muttering in a low voice. Why did the book follow him? Was it because he picked it up first? He guessed secretly but did not go too deep into it. There were countless magical things in the world. He had heard many incredible rumors in the south, let alone the Jing City was known as the divine land. It was not surprising what happened. After all, this was just a strange book that could be automatically sent back.
But after all, it was not her own thing. He had to put it back to the study as soon as possible. He wondered if the manager had come back. He hadn’t seen him for a long time, so he really missed him. Gian thought for a long time and glanced at the clock at the door. It was already 7:30. He quickly got up but the old book into his backpack ran to the bathroom to wash. He couldn’t be late for school.
The sky in the early morning was a little gloomy. The sun hadn’t passed through the gray clouds. The cold wind was blowing the banyan leaves by the road. Gian was in a winter uniform with a velvet lining. Carrying his schoolbag, he rushed to the teaching building. He was not afraid of cold and summer. The winter in Jing City was a “pleasant” climate for him.
He soon arrived at the bottom of the building. When he was about to climb up the stone ladder, he suddenly sensed the strange atmosphere around him. Today was Monday. The students parted for a short time after the weekend, which was supposed to be a good time for a lively chat. But at this moment, the stairs were a little quiet. Gian stopped and looked around four times. There were a lot of students whispering at the door of the first-grade classroom. When they saw him coming over, they all looked at him strangely, and even those who didn’t know each other would look at him more.
What happened…Gian continued to walk up quietly, listening attentively to a few conversations faintly.
“Is that him?”
“Look at that old schoolbag. I’ve never seen him change it.”
“Do you think he really knows the inside story?”
“It’s hard to say. With his identity, I don’t think so…”
Gian was even more confused by his sudden and sarcastic words. He was quite famous in the school, mostly because of Shane’s relationship, but it was not known to all. What happened? Gian couldn’t figure out what was going on, so he decided to ask an acquaintance first. He frowned slightly, ignored these gossips, and quickly ran to the classroom.
The classroom was very noisy, just like a grocery market. When Gian entered the room with his head down, the noisy classroom suddenly quieted down. Two years had passed, and class four had begun. All the students turned around and stared at him with different expressions. The scene was almost frozen.
Gian felt that he had returned to the scene when he first came to the school a year ago. At that time, countless substantial gazes shot towards him, almost piercing his whole body. It was like a silent trial. At that time, he was in the mood of a pilgrim and was full of good expectations for everything in Jing City, but he didn’t expect that. Fortunately, with the help of Lu Ang, he met Shane and Jin Yuan by accident.
Thinking of this, Gian calmed down. He kept silent and walked slowly to his seat expressionlessly, being baptized by countless gazes all the way. Although he also wanted to know what had happened, he thought it was better to keep silent according to the current situation. He would ask Lu Ang later. He must know. As if nothing had happened, Gian opened her schoolbag, pulled out his book, and began to look through it.
Perhaps it was because of the presence of the person concerned. The students no longer made a loud noise but turned to whisper to their ears. The buzzing sound like mosquitoes made them more annoyed.
Gian remained silent all the time. He waited quietly for the bell to ring and waited for his friend to answer his question. However, when the bell rang and the teacher walked into the classroom, Lu Ang still didn’t appear. Gian looked at the empty seat beside her and frowned. Did it have anything to do with Lu Ang? He suddenly remembered going to the Flood Icing Hotel yesterday and had a bad feeling.
His guess was soon confirmed. After the first class, several students could not help but surround him and asked him in a roundabout way.
“Gian……I heard that you went to the Flood Icing Hotel yesterday? “
“Did you come in? Have you seen Prince Shane? “
“Did Prince ask you to go there? I don’t even dare to go. I heard that many people died! “
Gian’s heart skipped a beat. As expected, something happens to Shane? Impossible! He immediately denied this conjecture. As the heir of a country, the security and defense around him were not ordinary people could imagine. What’s more, if something happened to Shane, Jing City would have already been in trouble. He didn’t have the right to guess.
He thought for a while and decided to ask the reason first, “how do you know I have been to a hotel?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
The three looked at each other. A young man ran back to his seat and took today’s newspaper. He pointed at the news and said to Gian, “look, this is written.”
Gian glanced at the newspaper and frowned again. It said that the Prince had been exploded at the port and was seriously injured without being found. It also exaggerated that she had received the news in the hotel with Lu Ang and punished the insiders.
What nonsense! Gian was annoyed. What kind of inside information was just a piece of news, which was heard by many people. These media people really like to confuse right and wrong!
He also figured out the cause of the incident and told the three people truthfully: “I didn’t enter the hotel. I waited in front of the door for a while, and I didn’t see Prince Shane…”
“Really not? Did Prince tell you where he was going? One of the students did not die to ask.
“…… Where is Prince going? Why did he tell me? “
“This is also…”
His companion coughed awkwardly and pulled him back, “Excuse me, disturb…”
Around the students to hear the dialogue just now are still dubious, eyes continued to explore him. Gian didn’t pay any attention. He sat in his chair and thought that “Lu Ang didn’t come to school because of this, right? I don’t know where he is now. He liked reading gossip tabloids best. He must have received the news for a long time. He should be prepared.”
Gian also thought of the report that the Prince was missing after the explosion. Although he didn’t believe it, he was worried. He decided to go to Lu Ang’s house to see the situation first. He thought so, sitting quietly, waiting for the arrival of school time.
At noon, the sun finally broke through the clouds, and the temperature of the sun dispelled the chill over the city. In the majestic palace in the northernmost part of Jing City, a man was closing his eyes and meditating on the Prince’s disappearance.
Black was the most important thing in the kingdom of Wong. The whole imperial city was covered with gloomy grey walls and black tiles. It looked old-fashioned and boring. The front hall was where the officials of all departments deal with government affairs. There were six three-story wooden attics arranged according to their positions. In the middle of the hall was the hall of the court meeting, which was about 20 meters high. On the top of the door, there was a Golden Phoenix Statue with its head raised to fly. Carved brick from the main hall had been paved to the palace gate, surrounded by tall ancient locust trees, evergreen branches, and leaves of this dark palace deeper and deeper.
Compared with the gloomy front hall, the back hall was very vivid. Although it had the same gray and black tone, it was full of green plants and birds, and small animals played among pavilions, which was peaceful and warm. Although it was late autumn, the back hall was still full of flowers and butterflies, just like a secluded paradise.
On the west side of the back hall, was the imperial study. His majesty sin oven, the supreme ruler of the Empire, was leaning against the soft couch in front of the window to meditate. The emperor, who had been in the age of destiny, still looked very young, as if he couldn’t leave the mark of time. He was dressed in a silver-white silk palace robe, without any unnecessary decoration. His black hair was combed into a simple bun. His face was warm and moist, and he could hardly hold a sense of dignity. He always had a slight smile on his mouth, which made him look more like a handsome scholar.
The interior decoration of the study was very simple. There was a red sandalwood square table in front of the soft couch, surrounded by layers of copper bookcases. Beside the table was a magic lamp, and under it was a gilded incense burner. Standing on the side of the door was an ancient wooden clock. The pendulum swang gently, bringing a sense of movement to the static room.
The slanting sunlight was warm and warm, and his majesty sat alone in the sunshine, like a sacred sculpture. Behind him came a few knocks on the door. He closed his eyes and gently answered, “Come in.” The voice was clear, and there was no sense of delay.
When the wooden door was pushed open, Ye Chi captain, still in his dark green uniform, walked slowly into the room. He saw the bright sunlight coming indirectly and stood straight to the window. His tall body covered the light completely.
The vision suddenly turned dark, and the emperor finally opened his eyes slowly. He looked at the expressionless officer and asked with a smile, “Is there any news?”
Captain slowly shook his head, his face sunk in the shadow, only to see that pair of surprisingly bright eyes.
“It’s good to go out and have a look…” The emperor waved out a black iron fan, opened it, and shook it gently, as if to himself, “While there is still time, let him go out to relax, until next year…” The emperor suddenly stopped. He seemed to recall something, and his eyes were full of nostalgia.
The officer stood beside him without saying a word, and the study fell into silence again.
The emperor was silent for a moment and suddenly sighed with emotion: “How long have we not been out of Jing City…” He took back the fan and nodded at random on the armrest, “The throne It’s like a cage. It’ll tie you tightly, and I can’t get rid of it at all…”
“Used to it.” Suddenly, the officer uttered such a sentence, with no waves or waves in his voice.
The emperor shook his head and chuckled: “Yes, I’m used to it. “He leaned back to his chair and shook the fan again, turning back to the topic he had just talked about.
“The hotel is taken over by the police, so you don’t have to go again…” The emperor looked at the officer and issued an order, “The old area of the port should continue to be blocked. You should take people to investigate carefully. Don’t leave any hidden danger.”
The officer nodded, and the emperor took a volume of a golden imperial edict from the table, handed it to him, and said, “You can give Wen ye a touch on the notice just drafted, and publish it as soon as possible…”
The Colonel took the imperial edict and did not ask more questions. He turned and strode out of the study.
The emperor was still sitting in front of the window. He closed his eyes and turned the fan back into the light. Leaning against the cushion, he continued to think about the sudden assassination case: it was not a big deal, but there was no danger. However, he did not expect that his son would be involved. Now he was still playing and missing, and he did not know how to send a message back. Can only find an excuse to cover up …The emperor put his hand on the wooden chair subconsciously and suddenly felt some tingling in his eyes. He sighed and waved. A layer of iron spread rapidly on the window, covering most of the light.
This problem was to be regarded as gain and loss … The emperor closed his eyes, immersed in the shadow, and gradually had some sleepiness. He dreamt back to the past time, with a gentle smile on his mouth.
The study was as quiet as before. Only the tick of the pendulum, as if a sound of urging, reminded the emperor to face the confusion and melancholy.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
