MRN 2 – Gadis Angkuh nan Cantik

Saat Zhao Jiayi dan yang lainnya di asrama meramalkan bahwa tidak akan ada gadis yang akan melirik Hao Ren dalam tiga tahun ke depan, Hao Ren sudah meninggalkan sekolah dengan panik. Dia melambaikan memanggil taksi dan sedang dalam perjalanan ke rumah sakit yang memiliki departemen dermatologi terbaik – Rumah Sakit Huaxi.

Di sana, Hao Ren menjalani serangkaian prosedur administrasi yang bertele-tele dan pemeriksaan yang melelahkan. Setelahnya, sembari memelajari setumpuk laporan dari peralatan medis, ahli kulit ahli dengan tegas mengatakan kepada Hao Ren bahwa goresan pada lengannya disebabkan oleh sejenis pewarna, seperti dalam lunturnya warna sejumlah seprei berkualitas buruk.

Menurut laporan itu, tidak ada mutasi pada sel-sel di tubuhnya. Semua hasil dari pelbagai tes menunjukkan tidak ada kelainan. Apalagi warna hijau itu bukan hasil pigmentasi. Adapun pola sisik, itu hanya kebetulan – warna kebetulan menyebar dalam pola yang relatif teratur. Yang paling penting, itu pastinya tidak menular.Read more

MRN 1 – Menelan Permen

Mendung gelap menutupi seluruh langit dan menjatuhkan bayangan mereka ke muka bumi. Suara guntur samar bergema di langit saat kilat menyambar-nyambar.

Rasanya seperti sang kilat telah siap untuk melesat menembus awan dan memecah-belah langit.

“Sial!” Hao Ren menatap cuaca buruk sambil menghela nafas; dia tahu badai mendekat. Dia menghirup udara lembab saat dia melangkah menuju toko pojok yang berjarak sekitar 300 meter.

Jika swalayan di area asrama tidak sedang dibenahi, jika dia tidak menggunakan tiga gunting berturut-turut pada pertandingan suit, dia tidak akan berada di sini dengan piama dan sandal. Dia tengah berbaring di tempat tidurnya membaca buku, tetapi teman sekamarnya ingin bermain kartu.

Jedar! Guntur yang keras terdengar, dan Hao Ren mulai berlari ketika dia mencoba menghindari badai.Read more

Magi 30 – The Descent of Chaos

From the orange skyline into the dark night sky, tonight pictures only came twice in a millennium. People call it the Celestial Parade of Ten Thousand Auroras.

Why? Since each dragon became a luminous object with different pattern and colors.

Some will have a pattern of bright light on their abdomens, and some were strip lucent on their dorsal, or some bright dots around their neck through to the tails.

Stronger dragons would have a blinding glow of lights, and they would make the moon became shy on the night.

“Brat stop right there!”

“D**n you, old lizard. This is a family business. Stay out of it!”

“Family your a*s you little imp! Return the Her Majesty’s Child right now!”

“Bah, this is my little sister. I must protect her. Do you want to take her away? Step over my dead body!”

“You b*****d. If not because I give a face to the late Queen, I am already skinned you alive! You are not even part of the clan. So, you wish to create a commotion on this sacred pilgrim?”

“I am not, it is you, old lizard!”

Between the lights, those were dancing in the night sky. Two dots seemed flying fast. One gave chase to the other.Read more

Magi 29 – The Feelings

Became a victim from someone else quarrels were one of the pathetic things in this world. I touched my swollen checks, and the pain will remain for some hours for this kind of bruises.

This girl is unbelievably terrible when she out of her mind.

People from Black Antlers Sect already left. They left just like that. I have a feeling that next time our meeting would be the battlefield.

“They came at the worst timing,” Ione grumbled.

‘Bad thing always come at a bad time, if not why people call it a bad thing?’

Both of us sit under the Golden Spruce. Ione sipped her tea while I enjoyed my milk. The warm fragrance of tea and honey danced around us.Read more

Magi 28 – Rage of a Grand Magus

Ancient people of the East said used to say, ‘You can easily enter the doorway of heaven, but instead you pushed yourself to the gateless hell. Whom would you blame for your own foolishness?’

“Yo Brats!” The senior brother yelled at us, “Where is your old man? Call him here; we must have this place.”

Ione stood there in front of me.

Her silence was more than a thousand words.

The three teenager girls didn’t like how Ione acted.

“Senior Brother, she is around five or six. Moreover, there is no other here. Perhaps their parents left them here. Just kick them out, we would only be wasting time to try to speak to them.”

The senior brother nodded, the snapping his finger. The two elders directly moved towards us.Read more

The first gift is a Lunar-scope. This scope can have anyone to see clearly for as far as 50 km under the moonlight. And the second gift is a dragon compass. This compass can wine to wear a dragon is likely hiding where likely day present.

Magi 26 – Did You Forget It?

Before I realize it, again, months flew away since the last incident. Fortunately, the village has no newspaper. Otherwise, there will be a headline ‘Baby Eiwa knocked out from overeating at Village Night Feast!’ What a shame, not because of the headline, but I yet tasted the whole buffet.

Suddenly, I heard from Mother that Grandma and Grandpa would visit us.

‘Eeee…, after that long time, they finally remember that they have a grandson?’

Nothing big particularly happen during this time.

Lily, as usual, she came and gone. If she came, Ione would become a sweating doll. If the Queen Spirit left, Ione would be dancing all day. Ione already reached Middle Tier Grand Mage last week, she was happy, yet worry about the next level practice, but also didn’t want to give up.Read more

Magi 25 – Happiness for Many, Misery for One

A week after the incidental high-leveled spirit summing. I found that Mother, Mari, Lina, sat with a solemn expression and looked at the darkening Eastern horizon.

‘What was their thinking?’

As soon as I noticed that they see the same point somewhere in the skyline belt, I got curious and looked at it too.

There was a bright star, shining brightly, I understood, ‘This…? Isn’t this the mythical Supreme Goddess Star – the Fionnuala Star? I believe it has ten thousand years of the cycle, and it was believed as an excellent omen. But why Mom looks so serious?’

I tried to remember any astrological records that Mother put in our house, but I couldn’t think any severe matter about this? Perhaps since it’s already ten thousand years, people forget about it, or there is merely no wide-ranging record since the beginning.Read more

Magi 24 – I am too Lazy

Have you ever in that kind of situation where people recognize you wrongly? Later they said it as an uncanny resemblance.  It was a disturbing experience. I didn’t see why, but I think I got that feeling from the spirit I summoned.

Ione also shocked, but she was frightened by looking at the Spirit Queen reaction toward Eiwa.

“Your Highness, do you perhaps recognize my little Brother?” Ione spoke a trembling voice; she was afraid his little brother had done mischief thing before, who knew what this petite troublemaker had done with his summoning capability?

Perhaps he accidentally summoned a high leveled lily spirit to buy him a jar of violet-cane honey.

I did casually summon her, but she looked at me as looking a long-lost child — what a strange summoned spirit.Read more

Magi 23 – For the Smile of Fallen Maiden

Even the news of Battle Princess was coming from Padmaloka; many were still skeptical. They would ask, ‘Is this a sign that Padmaloka will have a successor?’ But. Another question would arise, ‘Why the successor didn’t leave Padmaloka, but only the maid?’, ‘The successor already the for eons, why no one knows about him?’

The popularity of Battle Princess was still rising to the top. Many top powers send her invitation to visit their place. Many schools and academies were sent invitations for Battle Princess to attend their school as a guest elder.

She politely rejected all the proposal, she said, if there is fate in future, she sure will give a visit.Read more
