Chapter 4: Taking care of everything
They were currently in an undeveloped planet where there are no intelligent creatures on this land apart from foreign beings and the only foreign bodies were currently Gu Yan and this adult Heidis next to him.
No matter what, the locals of this planet were not to be trifled with. Even for a person equipped with weapons and highly skilled in martial arts, this was still a deadly zone.
Ever since the day the adult Heidis first took on its human form, quite a few days had passed. The food in his space was depleting and in two more days, it would be completely gone. Gu Yan never got the chance to solve this problem because the adult Heidis very naturally went out to hunt for food and when it came back, it would bring back the dead preys and put it in front of him.
Hunting, this sort of thing should only be done after he recovered. So when he sees the big cat putting the dead preys in front of him and tilt its head, he could only look on silently. According to his experience, he would have to pat its head in order to satisfy this big cat.
In recent days, Gu Yan had a feeling he was, uh … being taken care of by the adult Heidis.
It was no different today. Gu Yan did not have any top grade weapons on him and his body was originally not strong thus he naturally stayed in the cave, waiting for the adult Heidis to come back. This place itself was sufficiently concealed, Moreover, most wild beasts would avoid coming closer because of the smell of a Heidis.
“00, the ‘rules’ you were talking about yesterday, explain it to me again more specifically.” While waiting for the Heidis to come back, he had been communicating with the system that had pushed him into this dire situation.
When he had first arrived in this world, Gu Yan had been busy trying to preserve his small life and did not have any free time to have a proper talk with this system. But it was different afterwards.
Towards ‘ 00 ‘ this nickname, system 037 was silent. There was no objection, only silent acknowledgment.
[The host created this world, but that is only limited to the infrastructure of this world. The details are made up by ‘The Rules ‘. For example, when the host writes about a person’s death, in the absence of a description of the cause of death, the ‘Rules’ will choose the most suitable process to achieve the results that is written. ]
Gu Yan listened seriously, what the system had said was not difficult to understand. Simply put, there are countless things that are happening in this world and the ‘ plots’ and ‘settings’ that he had written about were only a small portion of it while the rest that were not mentioned are decided by the ‘Rules’.
Thinking of this, Gu Yan hated himself for not writing a little more details regarding the villain boss’s first appearance in the novel.
He simply wrote that due to a power failure and positioning error in the starship, it had been forced to crash on to this planet. Later on, this human cannon fodder(him) was just a stepping stone to build up momentum for the story before the final ending— the Earth Alliance was destroyed by the Black Empire.
The Black Empire was the name of the Heidis Empire known by the other races.
Right now, Gu Yan only knows that the Heidis will soon leave this planet to head back to the capital of the Empire star. As for how and when, he did not have a clue.
Will he bring this emergency reserve together too? Gu Yan wondered with a complicated feeling. There was no way of surviving in this world by himself, but going back to the Heidis’ star empire…
Wasn’t it the same as stepping into a lion’s cave?
Mankind was the greatest delicacy for the Heidis beast, this set-up was truly wicked.
Now he might as well hang himself.
“Previously you said that the reason why I was able to communicate with Eli was because of these ‘Rules’?” Eli is the name of the adult Heidis. Gu Yan remembers clearly that he had set different languages for the various races. Under normal circumstances, these races would not be able to communicate with each other.
Although there was a common language, it was not widely used.
[For the host, these rules are…] The system suddenly paused, as if looking for the appropriate words.
“Are what?” Gu Yan revealed a face of interest.
[Biased] This was something outside his expectations and it was something the system had only figured out recently.
Gu Yan was satisfied with this answer. As an author, he had an abundance of knowledge and imagination. Previously, he had asked system if there was an exchange shop or something for him to attain some magical items and hone his golden finger. However, system had coldly shot down his hopes.
Being loved by the ‘Rules’, this should also be counted as a golden finger, Gu Yan comforted himself. Something was still better than nothing.
If the system knew what Gu Yan was thinking, it would probably be silent for a long time. The host has no idea that to be favored by the ‘ rules ‘ of this world was actually an extremely…Unthinkable thing.
He could influence, or even change the ‘Rules’. For example, when Gu Yan had spoken Mandarin, in Eli’s ears it had been perfectly fluent Heidis’s language.
The ability to influence and change the ‘ Rules ‘ can become a very scary thing if you look at it from another perspective.
After their exchange, Gu Yan peered out of the cave. Judging from the position of the Sun, he felt that the Heidis should almost be back.
As he expected, a few minutes later, Gu Yan saw a big cat walk into the cave towards him, holding the neck of an unknown prey and putting it down.
Hearing the low ‘Wuu…” sound, Gu Yan habitually opened up his arms to catch the shrinking figure of the adult Heidis that had jumped into his arms.
As usual, he would use his hands to clean away any dirt on the big cat’s fur. Being stared at by that pair of beautiful light vertical pupils, Gu Yan very naturally extended his hands to rub the big cat’s slightly tilted head several times.
The adult Heidis narrowed its eyes happily, lying motionlessly as it gave out a low snoring sound.
When a group of people relying on a machine to find this cave finally arrived and saw the current scene, they were completely stunned.
They deeply suspected that their eyes were broken. If not how could they see their own cold and ruthless, comparable to a war machine commander in the form of a small ball being held by a dark-haired youth that was… brushing his fur???
However, the very next second, they saw the ball shift its gaze towards them. They couldn’t be more familiar with the frigid iciness in those eyes.
This was the gaze their commander had when looking at the opposing army troops on the battlefield. It can also be said that it was the gaze he used to look at a dead person. This caused the group of people at the entrance of the cave hesitate to take another step forward.
Gu Yan had just noticed that seven black figure had appeared at the entrance of the cave. The big cat that was in his arms jumped down to the ground and restored its original beast form, guarding Gu Yan behind him.
Gu Yan stroked the chin. He thought that these days, this adult Heidis had taken care of his food and sleep… Ah, in the night, this Heidis would restore its original form to let him lie on his back to sleep. This probably started from the day he accidentally let out a sentence that he had “slept until his back hurt.”
And now that there was danger, the Heidis had instantly stood in front of him, protecting him.
Originally, he had only diligently brushed the adult Heidis for the sake of protecting his small life. However, now he felt that he should probably treat this Heidis better.
“The commander doesn’t seem to recognize us.” All of them were wearing the same black uniform, with badges showing the difference in identity between the talking man and the others. The handsome and elegant young man pushed up his glasses and stated his observation.
Relying on the last signal sent out from his starship, they found this planet. When they reached, they only saw a ship that had been destroyed and could only be described as a ‘ wreck ‘.
In this case, the probability of survival was very small. This included the Heidis that had physiques that surpassed all the other races.
They did not find any corpse and hoped that their commander may still be alive. As direct subordinates of the commander, these people were undoubtedly happy, but did not expect to face this kind of situation at present.
Those words instantly made everybody gloomy. Things had become complicated…
“We bear no hostility.” Evan, the young man with the gold rimmed glasses motioned for the others to stand to the side. He did not take another step into the cave, but disarmed himself instead.
But even so, the coldness within the pair of green eyes did not diminish the slightest. This was within his expectations.
Instead of instantly attacking the people who had invaded its territory, the other person had hidden a youth of unknown race behind him, seemingly trying to protect them. That came as a bit of a surprise to him as an aide.
Seeing the Heidi’s large body slightly lower threateningly, Evan pushed up his glasses once again. The way things are progressing, it seems as though he would have a face off with his own commander…
Taking advantage of the fact that their commander had lost his memories, he hoped that it extended to his abilities too. If they were limited, he might have a chance.
However, what he had expected did not happen. Evan watched as the young man of unknown origins whisper a few words to his commander, but he could not hear the details…. He could see that the adult Heidis, who had already taken on an aggressive stance, shrunk his body and jumped into the youth’s arms.
“Hello, this is…” Stepping forward, Gu Yan tried to think of a proper salutation and finally nodded to the other party, smiling politely: “Your Excellency.” ”
Judging from their clothing to the pair of iconic glasses on the people at the entrance, he could guess their identity. Gu Yan was not worried for their safety.
There was no other way; the villain boss that he had dared hold in his arms was these people’s commanding officer. He wondered how he could get out of this situation,
However, after the polite exchange, the other side’s reaction was completely beyond Gu Yan’s expectations.
Gu Yan looked at the man in the stiff uniform wearing the gold-rimmed glasses. Previously the face still held a trace of friendliness but when he saw Gu Yan walk closer, he suddenly took a step back, his expression changing rapidly.
Evan’s hand flew over to cover his mouth and nose, his head turned to his side. In a split second, a strong desire overwhelmed him and even his reaction had been delayed by a few milliseconds.
The language that the youth spoke was undoubtly their own, but he had no time to realize this.
There was a… tempting smell. This sort of scent was coming from the youth’s body. The moment the youth came closer, Evan clearly felt it but it was not the reason why he had stepped back.
No matter how much temptation this scent held to him, he was no longer a weak-willed recruit. The temptation was strong, but not enough for him to lose control.
There was another smell that was even stronger on his body. That smell came from the adult Heidis that was currently in his arms.
A smell that was… full of warning.
No one was allowed to touch, or even come any closer.
The Heidis that had marked this was extremely strong. He could clearly see the threat behind this marking.
What kind of reaction was that?
Gu Yan paused and silently wondered… was there an unpleasant smell on his body that made others unwilling to come closer??
Gu Yan could not help but sniff at the back of his hand. In the end, he slowly lowered his hands, his fingers unconsciously fiddling big cat’s ears.
He really did not smell anything strange ah… Gu Yan looked at the young man questioningly.
He did not guess for long before he felt a moist feeling on his fingertips. Gu Yan lowered his head to see the silver tiger tabby cat raise its head to lick his fingers. Seeing Gu Yan looking at himself, the cat also tilted its head down, occasionally producing a low meow.
“Be good…” Gu Yan used a gentle tone to coax it. Facing the small appearance of the adult Heidis, Gu Yan always easily forgets the actual identity of this seemingly harmless cat.
“…” Evan slowly pushed the glasses on the bridge of his nose. Although he knew his commanding officer was currently missing some parts of his memory, his actions were still somewhat unnaturally stiff.
His reaction was already considered reasonable. The minds of the six people behind him in his convoy were already thrown into disarray.
He looked at the youth that was teasing his commander. Yet, it was unexpectedly quiet and docile, lying motionlessly as if silently acknowledging the youth’s action.
In the end, it even raised its head to lick the youth’s finger that had been playing with its ears.
In their memories, their commander was someone who was extremely cold and aloof, unmoved by everything. Just by standing still, the Heidis Empire’s seventh commander had an oppressive aura. However, between that commander and the one in front of them, there was simply too big of a difference.
In that moment. It was as if something had… shattered in front of them.
End of Chapter 4
Translator’s Notes: Translating turned out to be even more difficult than writing a whole new original novel. Each chapter almost took me a whole day not counting the time I have to review and edit. It’s a really slow process since I go line by line.(I get distracted a lot but still…) This chapter was suuper long pheww
I have something to say, before translating this I’ve only read spoilers. I’m reading this along as I translate so I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen. I know just as much as you guys. Don’t ask why I didn’t read the raws first but this novel is turning out better than expected. The cat ML is already showing his possessive side so fast UWU
BTW any Chinese people or anyone that can read Chinese give me a word for 撒娇 because it keeps appearing and what I think it stands for sometimes clashes with the context.
