Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The two people in the study were unaware of the disaster in Jing City.
It was just past 3 o’clock in the afternoon. When Gian sent the last guest away and was about to clean the private room, Yuno stopped him and pointed at a glass of three color wine on the table. He smiled and said, “have a rest first. Have a taste of my new formula.”
“I won’t…” Embarrassed, Gian rubbed her nose and wanted to refuse politely. But when he saw his eager eyes, he thought for a while and sat down on the high chair. He picked up the glass and smelled it. A fresh apple smell came to his nose.
Apple Champagne… The crystal-like red, yellow, green, and three colors in the cup seemed to be still rotating and dividing. He looked at the shop manager hesitantly and took a sip of the cup. At first, he felt a little sweet, then a strong, mellow fragrance swept through his mouth and filled his nose. He quickly covered his nose, and tears fell down. He held his breath for a few seconds, and the tingling sensation quickly subsided, leaving only a faint bitterness in his mouth.
Seeing that he was depressed, Yuno patted him on the back. When he came back to his senses, he asked expectantly, “How is it going?”
“A little… a little choked. “Gian wiped the tears around his eyes and took a few deep breaths before making the final comment with a strong nasal voice.
He really didn’t know how to drink, and he even felt choked by such low concentration fruit wine. The manager couldn’t help laughing and sighed with emotion. He put the bottles and jars used to mix the wine back to the wooden cabinet one by one. Suddenly, he missed his ordered wine tasting master. He turned his head and casually asked, “How is Jin Yuan recently? Have you been to the study? “
“Jin Yuan？” Gian took a deep breath to calm down. Then he remembered that he hadn’t mentioned the assassination to the manager yet, so he sniffed and explained, “a few days ago, there was a big event in the capital city. He followed Prince Shane to investigate, but there is no news yet…”
“Big deal? The assassination of the Flood Icing Hotel? “Yuno wiped his hands with a towel and asked with a frown.
“Do you know that?”
“Such a big event has already spread around the city…” The shop manager thought about the wording, slowly folded the towel, and put it back on the shelf. “As a matter of fact, this has something to do with me. My father was also in the hotel that night. I have asked him about everything. “
“Your father?” Gian suddenly thought of Lord Sarong Askel. He had golden hair and an elegant smile. “Is it Lord Sarong?”
“Why Don’t you think so? “Yuno turned around and stared at him, raising her eyebrows.
“No, No.” Gian shook his hand and denied, “I thought you looked like each other. I didn’t expect you to be your father.”
“Only my family has this kind of unique golden hair. You should recognize it at a glance…” The shop manager looked up at him proudly and asked, “How do you know they are investigating this matter?”
“I heard from my classmate yesterday that Prince Shane was ordered to continue investigating the assassination case. Jin Yuan… Maybe he is with him too. “
“Is there any other news today?”
“I came here early in the morning. I didn’t hear any new news on the way…”
No news yet… Yuno frowned and thought, ‘several days have passed since the Assassination. Even if they can’t find out the result, they should send back a message.’ Was there any danger?
“Manager…” Gian interrupted him, scratching his head and apologizing, “I have to go back early today. Something happened in the school. I’m afraid I’ll be in trouble if I go back late…”
“Oh…” Yuno nodded absentmindedly. “If you have any news about them, remember to tell me. I’ll be here in a few days.”
“Okay! Don’t worry. “Gian ran to change his clothes, waved goodbye to him, and left the study quickly.
He returned to the outdoor room from the warm room in an instant. The severe temperature difference between inside and outside made him shiver violently, and he couldn’t help but get goosebumps all over his body. He bent down and rubbed his hands and cheeks hard. As soon as he turned around, he almost bumped into someone again.
“Sorry, sorry, I didn’t notice it…” Gian apologized repeatedly and looked up. In front of her, the handsome young man was dressed in a luxurious and complex robe, his long purple hair slightly waving in the wind. He half-closed his eyes and looked arrogant, which made him look out of place in this old and shabby temple.
He looked familiar. All of a sudden, Gian felt that he had seen him before. Staring at the priest who seemed to be of extraordinary status, he finally got a faint disdain. “What’s wrong with my face? Is there any difference?” The man’s voice was soft but with a long ending, with a strange lazy tone.
“I’m really sorry…” Gian scratched his head, yawned, bowed slightly to him as an apology, turned around, and ran away. Maybe they were customers who had come to the shop before. He thought while running. Since he came to the study, he had seen various big shots, so he didn’t take this encounter seriously.
He really had no memory. The young man with purple hair glanced at his back, reached out his hand to cover the stone tablet, and passed it to the study. He stood by the door and looked around. His expression suddenly became much more relaxed, as if the study could make him feel more comfortable. He flicked the golden wind bell with nostalgia, clapped his sleeves, and walked through the porch. When he saw Yuno sitting in the left private room and reading newspapers, he immediately raised the corners of his mouth and smiled with interest. “What are you doing, naughty boy?”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Hsuan？” The shop manager turned around in astonishment. When he saw clearly who it was, he frowned and complained, “don’t call me like that!”
“Oh, really? You have lived for a long time and have a bad memory… “Hsuan smiled and waved his hand casually.
Why didn’t he remember it? Yuno had already seen through his trick of pretending to be confused. He pouted and turned over the newspaper. Out of the corner of his eyes, he glanced at him and asked, “why do you leave the gate today?”
“I just came back to the capital city and dropped by to have a look…” Hsuan replied with a smile. He didn’t want to talk about the disaster to the young man, so he turned around and was about to go upstairs.
“Hsuan, wait…” The shop manager stopped him immediately, walked out of the private room, and stood in front of him. “Do you know the assassinations in the previous capital?”
“Assassination? I’ve never heard of anyone. “
“Well… I want to ask you if you have the latest news. “Yuno sighed with a slight sense of disappointment.
“What news do you want to know? Let me help you with your fortunetelling… “Hsuan seemed to be in a good mood all of a sudden. He rolled his eyes and took out an old copper coin from the blue cloth bag around his waist. He waved it in front of him deliberately with a sly smile.
“……Could it work? I don’t think so. “
“If you really want to know something, then you have to believe me. What do you want to know?”
“……I want to ask Jin Yuan and Shane where they are. “
“Then… Let’s see if they are in Jing City. “Hsuan tossed the coin high into the air and caught it. He opened his hand and saw the word “no” on it. Shaking his head, he sighed, “it’s not in Jing City. It’s hard to find it now…”
“Then, ask them if they are safe.”
Hsuan nodded with a smile and took out the coins again.
“Really?” Staring at the word “no,” Yuno’s heart skipped a beat. He grabbed the coin from his hand, read the question silently, and threw it out again, only to find the word “Yes.” He looked suspiciously at priest, who turned his head with his hands clasped behind his back as if he was looking at the scenery outside the window.
How about three rounds and two wins. He took out the coins again and returned to the word “no.” Why was he so unlucky? He didn’t believe it and wanted to throw it again, but Hsuan quickly grabbed the copper coins.
“Well… One question can only be thrown away once, and no more will work. “The priest coughed and put the copper coins back into the bag unhurriedly. Pretending not to see the shop manager’s expression of being cheated and complaining, he strode upstairs. He walked along the crystal wall to the golden star pattern in the center. A white light flashed with his hands in the air, and his figure disappeared in the darkroom.
In the corner of an unknown space, the figure of the priest in purple robe flashed again. He seemed to be in a round wooden house, with a translucent crystal dome above his head. The purple fluorescent thin lines snaked on the crystal wall, outlining a gorgeous pattern of flowers. There were many plants of different colors hanging on the wooden wall around. On the right was a row of storage boxes, and beside the cabinet was a square wooden door. The door was tightly closed, and no one knew where it would lead to. In front of them was a huge glass floor to ceiling window. Outside the window, the sun was bright, and the water was streaming. It was like a garden full of green. Two rattan rocking chairs and a tea table were placed by the window.
There was no one in the room four times. Hsuan went straight to the window, lay on the rocking chair, and breathed a sigh of relief. He could finally go home. He looked at the grass outside the house and touched the tea table wearily, thinking of the disaster of the magic flame that had just happened.
Since the explosion of divine energy 8 years ago, disasters have become more frequent in the whole continent. He could only run around like a firefighter. It didn’t matter if he was a little tired, but the worsening situation was like a huge stone pressing on his heart, becoming heavier and heavier, and could not be solved. And this disaster had happened in Jing City for the first time, and the cause and effect were unusual.
The sense of crisis that came urgently made him depressed. He took out an exquisite pipe from the cloth bag around his waist, stuffed some thin leaves into his mouth, and was about to rub out the light when he felt his head sink. A fat white bird appeared instantly, squinting at the top of his head and staring at the pipe with an unfriendly expression.
“Oh, you smoker, don’t smoke in my place! Don’t think I can’t see it! I’ve already smelled the smoke on you! “The white bird rudely trampled his hair into a mess and shouted at him.
This noisy fellow. Hsuan angrily threw the pipe on the tea table, waved his hand over his head, and drove the fat bird away. After he sorted out his messy hair, he shouted in a low voice, “when did you become your territory? Shame on you!”
“I said, yes! I said no smoking, so no smoking! “The fat bird Huang flapped his wings and stood on the cane chair. He combed his feathers as if nothing had happened and rolled his eyes at him.
The priest was so angry that he laughed. He caught it in the crook of his arm and bounced it hard on its round head. “You are so rebellious! I have to teach you a lesson today! “
“Ah!!!Help! Kill the birds! Help! “Huang struggled desperately in panic and let out a piercing scream. His shrill voice spread all over the wooden house. After a while, the wooden door on the side opened gently from the inside, and ahead slowly popped out.
Wearing a beige nightdress, Miyo rubbed her sleepy eyes and looked into the room in confusion. In the golden sun by the French window, the priest lay on a rocking chair and closed his eyes for rest. The fat bird was standing on the tea table, with wings holding a cake from nowhere. The atmosphere was harmonious and harmonious.
The girl tilted her head and was still thinking about the strange scream. The priest seemed to have noticed her arrival. He opened his eyes and smiled gracefully. “Miyo, are you still taking a nap? I’ll take you to eat something delicious tonight. “
Expressionless, Miyo stood by the door and looked at the cake for a while. Then she slowly walked to him and called him “Hsuan.” her empty purple eyes stared at the cake in her hand without blinking.
Two foodies… Hsuan sighed and took out two desserts from the bag and handed them to the girl. She didn’t know why the bag could hold so many things.
“Thank you…”The girl still said thanks expressionlessly, with one in each of her hands, and sat on the chair to eat.
Looking at these one or two foodies, priest found that their eating movements were unusually harmonious. He could not help but sigh with emotion. Since he took her back to the study eight years ago, he had been accompanied by this fat bird all day long. This bird was greedy, lazy, and noisy. He was afraid that she would be misled. Fortunately, although the girl was quiet, she was gentle and soft. Otherwise, it would be difficult to explain to her father in the future.
In the afternoon, the sun was shining brightly. Hsuan shook the rocking chair slightly, squinted his eyes, and continued to be lost in thought. This time, when he returned to the capital city, there must be a lot of trouble and a group of troublesome people. He really couldn’t escape. What’s more, the disaster was not so serious. He was afraid that he would stay in the city for a longer time.
Now there was a lot of trouble closed his eyes and didn’t want to think too much. He planned to spend the rest of the afternoon in peace.
There was no wind or words in the wood hall. Only the sound of gently shaking the chair could be heard occasionally, pushing the almost frozen time forward slowly.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
