CRA Chapter 77 – part 2


In the saen prophet’s dark blue eyes, time and wisdom had settled. The other calmly said, “We need to confirm his essence, then we will decide whether to return the necklace or not.”

The necklace which belonged to the nox in front of him had by chance been discovered by one of their people at the black market. Seeing the nox characters engraved on the ring, they had bought this necklace and taken it back with them to Chronos.

Because they felt the material of the necklace and the ring strung on it was very special, they had presented the necklace to their prophets, and after some research, they were amazed to discover the secret hidden within.

The necklace was indeed an ordinary necklace, even if the material was a little special. But the ring on it was different.

It may be in the form of a ring, but this ring was in reality actually a “key”— used to activate a certain object, a terrifying weapon that could instill fear and amazement in all the races of the interstellar.

Ya Yi, who was by Xie Luan’s side, didn’t react to hearing this. As if he didn’t care about the things the other was saying, he merely accepted it with his usual indifferent expression.

Xie Luan gave a slight nod. From the other’s words, he could roughly make out that the necklace was not an ordinary item, and the saen were afraid Ya Yi would do bad things after getting the necklace.

“It’s good if you can understand.” Kelái added, his gaze rested on the last surviving nox in the interstellar.

The saen was a race that had been on friendly terms with the nox. At that time, when a catastrophe occurred on their planet, it had been the nox race who had extended a helping hand.

Because of this grace, even now, when everything already seemed very clear, they still really didn’t want to believe that the star field explosion more than thirty years ago was caused by the nox race’s selfish desires.

Now thinking back to the time before the big explosion, the saen had actually taken the initiative to contact the nox race, which had gone into a closed state. The response they received made them wonder even now.

At the time, the nox responded there was no time.

It was unclear what the nox race was worried about back then. Kelái was one of the few people who still remembered this matter.

Although they didn’t want to accept it, the fact that the explosion happened still remained. Now facing the last nox, they had to keep a certain degree of vigilance while continuing to remember the grace shown them.

Inside the arranged guest accommodations, there were actually two rooms. Xie Luan looked at the nox who followed behind him into the room and unexpectedly felt very used to this.

Thinking about how the other was going to touch the soulstone tomorrow to test his essence, Xie Luan lifted his hand and lightly stroked the nox’s silver hair.

“Will it be even longer?” Cool hair brushed against his fingertips. When Xie Luan looked at the length of the silky silver hair, he couldn’t help but ask this.

It was nearly to his waist. This length looked good, but Xie Luan wondered if the other would find it troublesome.

As soon as Xie Luan had finished saying this, he saw the nox touch his own hair, then cut a small space rift in the air on the right and wantonly take out a short weapon with pretty good sharpness from inside.

Before he could react, Xie Luan felt the handle of the dagger being stuffed into his hand. He then saw the nox, standing close to him, bow his head slightly and droop his silver hair in front of him.

“…”

Looking down at the dagger in his hand, and then at the silver hair the other deliberately presented to him, Xie Luan’s mood switched between helplessness and amusement.

“Actually, long hair looks good too, although it can be a little troublesome to take care of. If you want to cut it, I will try to find a pair of scissors and cut it for you once we return to the branch.”

He put down the dagger. Xie Luan naturally could not use such a simple and crude way to cut the other’s hair.

The second after his voice fell, Xie Luan watched Ya Yi lift his head and nod at him, “Won’t cut.”

The face of the man before him was cold and handsome. His features were not soft, but Xie Luan now saw the other slightly lower his eyebrows. This made his cold expression ease a bit, and he showed him a kind of contradictory tenderness.

Xie Luan could not explain what happened next. He must have been possessed somehow, for when he saw this kind of docile appearance, he could not help but raise the hand that was touching the other’s cool silver hair and placed it on the other’s head where there should be a beautiful horn, stroking this place for a little while. [1]

After a moment, the nox revealed his hidden horn. Xie Luan didn’t know what to think, so he just stroked it repeatedly. In the end he went as far as to… kiss the left horn.

Fortunately, at that time, when he felt the other’s intense gaze, he was able to distract the other by touching his nearby tail. However, now that he woke up the next day, Xie Luan was actually still a little confused.

But there was no time for Xie Luan to be lost in thought, it was now time for them to go to the Temple of Kanya.

As soon as Ya Yi touches the soulstone and gets back the necklace, he would also know what it was about the necklace that made the saen treat it with such caution.

Translator’s note:

God, I swear I didn’t translate it weirdly. It was like that in the raws… Maybe I’m just too far gone, or maybe it’s the new strict censorship at work, cough, if you know what I mean. ( 〃ω〃)

  1. I think the author’s really good at writing ambiguously haha but they’re so sweet I’m in danger of getting cavities

  2. I was confused by the abrupt time cut/scene change at the end of the chapter.
    But it makes sense if you associate it with the new strict censorship.

    Thanks for the update ~!^^

  3. Kissing the horn (灬º‿º灬)♡ they are getting more active. I’m not sure if it’s fully a censor thing, the horn kissing is sexual but tail seems to be more sensual? Which can also lead to snusnu but he said ‘distracted from intense gaze by stroking tail’. So it sounds to me like they passed another important point in their relationship then settled back to their comfort with each other? I think the curiosity is more to deal with why kiss the horn and feeling the progression of their relationship
