Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 3 Book of Exchange – Chapter 14 Heartless Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 14 Heartless After saying that, Wen Jiubo stood up and put some books on a shelf. “However, compared to those weak monsters who mess around all the time, Gudiao is only active once every nine years to eat a whole village worth of people and then goes back to its nest to sleep. He’s considered quite kind.” “Ki…kind?” I was stunned by Wen Jiubo’s choice of words. “Hold on, you think a monster that eats a whole village is kind?” Wen Jiubo turned his head to look at me and frowned. “At least, it didn’t intend to create a disturbance or trouble people. Generally speaking, those monsters are much more annoying.” Wen Jiubo, what kind of person are you? I should have known that this guy was heartless, and yet I still expected him to show some empathy. “How many people are there in a village?” I tried very hard to control my anger. “Em…” Wen Jiubo thought about for a second and replied, “A small village probably has around four or five hundred people, larger villages might have thousands of people.” “So those thousands of lives mean nothing to you?” I couldn’t keep calm anymore. “Gu Yu.” That familiar expression suggesting ‘I don’t...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 3 Book of Exchange – Chapter 13 Gudiao Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 13 Gudiao The old books were so heavy that I almost dropped them on the floor. “What are these books?” “This is ‘The Classic of Mountains and Seas’, and this is the ‘Collected Stories of Xuanzhong’, and those right there are ‘In Search of the Supernatural’, ‘Book of Youming’, and ‘Biographies of Immortals’.” Bai didn’t give me time to ask more questions, he put a few more thick books on my knees. “Be careful, these books are worth their weight in gold.” “Wait, what?” These books were too heavy to carry, so I put them all on the ground. “What’s going on here? Did Wen Jiubo finally run out of money and decided to sell some of his assets?” “Don’t jinx me.” After hearing that, Wen Jiubo softly hit my head with an old, thick book. The book looked very useful as a weapon. “Since you’re here, help us do some research.” Wen Jiubo sat on the floor cross-legged. He opened the book in his hands and said, “This is a very laborious job.” “What are you looking for?” I asked curiously. It was rare to see Wen Jiubo doing such large-scale research, he usually knew everything there was to know about demons and...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 3 Book of Exchange – Chapter 12 A Room Full of Books Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 12 A Room Full of Books Who was she? And what was this dream I had last night… “Oi, kid,” Chu Bai began to talk before I could ponder over it. “Are you going to meet that man today?” I was confused and unable to answer, “What man?” “You know, that man!” “Oh, you mean Wen Jiubo?” I finally realized who she was talking about. “I…How would I know his name?” “En…I’m not sure,” I replied after thinking for a second. “I guess if I don’t have any homework today…” Unexpectedly, Chu Bai interrupted me before I could finish. “No! Aren’t you his apprentice? How could you skip work two days in a row?” I was amused by her. “Huh? Apprentice? Wait, who told you I’m his apprentice? That guy is only a stingy and cheap employer, he not only never pays me, but always forces me to do things…” As I started complaining, I felt the phone vibrating in my pocket. I took it out, and the screen displayed Wen Jiubo’s name. What a coincidence! To call me with this timing definitely wasn’t a good thing! “Hello?” I picked up the phone in an unfriendly tone. “What’s up, I...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 3 Book of Exchange – Chapter 11 Getting along With Chu Bai Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 11 Getting along With Chu Bai That man picked up the paper man, put it into his pocket and then he looked back at me, who was still shocked by the fight. “As I said, it’s very dangerous late at night, not only for humans but for the ghosts as well.” He gave me a smile. Then, he picked up the broken umbrella, turned around and walked away. It was not until that moment I realized that what I smelled on him wasn’t the smell of blood. It was… the smell of a creature that was not human. ———————————————— The dream stopped here, as I woke up. It took me a few seconds to remember where I was currently. Oh, right… I slept in a motel near the school yesterday, but why did I sleep here… “Ah!” I suddenly sat up and was fully awake. The female ghost, Chu Bai, she gratuitously possessed me when I was in the alley, and she almost strangled me to death on the street. And last night she—— Is she still here? I cautiously cleared my throat and asked, “Chu Bai, are you there?” No one answered me, the room was silent. I touched...Read More
Urban Tales of Demons and Spirits Vol 3 Book of Exchange – Chapter 10 Encounter Translator: PandaWu Editor: Drogan QC: Dray First Published on Chaleuria. Chapter 10 Encounter At that time I began to realize how lucky I was to meet him among the millions of lingering spirits. It was a dark and drizzly night when we first met. That man suddenly showed up in front of me while I was lingering in the streets. He was wearing a dark robe, his waist-length hair loosely tied on his back. He held an oil-paper umbrella and casually walked on the wet stone paved street. His face was so delicate and beautiful, you’d mistake it for a painting. What a beautiful man. That was my first thought. Besides, as I looked at his back, I noticed the loneliness seeping out from his being. Why was he walking alone down the street this late at night? I heard the officials warned people that there was a murderous demon on the loose in the area, therefore no one stayed outside after seven in the evening. Why was this man walking around so late at night as if he didn’t care about this at all? I didn’t know I was thinking, but I suddenly had the idea of —— going there to prank him. Though I was a ghost, I’ve never done anything bad, like...Read More
