Chapter 21.1 – Do□□ flower

Warning: a bit gorey
Italicized you means it’s in the formal form. Paragraph clusters have been removed~
I suspect the title is 多维.尼之花, which will be explained in the second part of this chapter.
Didn’t expect such an early chapter? Well… I didn’t too, I wonder how I managed ❤_(:3 」∠)_


 

The smell of blood pervaded the nostrils.

A quiet corridor, and a clean floor underneath the soles.

Unbridled drops of blood dripped slowly from his mask as Roux said in a low, husky voice, “We’re really destined.”

His actions had been swift and fierce. The scent of slaughter from his body swept across Astra’s front, just as forceful as his actions.

Astra’s expression was very ugly. He didn’t move, allowing Roux to restrict his space in a “kabedon” posture while he leaned against the door in an upright manner.

“You followed us?” He asked.

“Hm?” Roux laughed. “You have to pay attention to evidence when you speak.”

Astra’s hand approached the doorknob then locked the door containing his teammates. He didn’t show a good face toward Roux and fake smiled very perfunctorily. “It is what it is that you say. You are strong, even if it’s making trouble without reason, it’s all reasonable when it is you.”

Relying on his handsome face, he could be described as bold enough to sound out the suspected gay Roux.

Roux, “You have great opinions of me.”

Astra, “Should I not have?”

Roux immediately smiled at him.

But in this corridor where the smell of blood was getting heavier, this smile possessed a hair-raising sense of danger.

He seemed to want to say something more, but distant exclaims came one after another, which interrupted what he was about to say. Roux turned his head to listen to the distant voices, his mask stained with ruthlessness and indifference. He retracted his hands that were beside Astra’s ears. “Stay here and don’t move.”

“If you don’t want to be too scared to sleep at night,” Roux, “then listen to me obediently.”

It seemed like a friendly reminder, but also like a warning. After throwing this sentence, he soon disappeared.

Fuck that shit.

Astra sneered and casted spiritual energy in front of his teammates’ door before following him to the place where blood was thickest.

How funny, who the hell knows what your purpose is.

On this entire spacecraft, you’re the most dangerous person, ok?

Walking all the way through the corridor, the only clean place was the one near where they were locked up. When he turned a corner, what greeted him were bloody walls.

A space pirate who lost his life was mercilessly left on the ground, the floor around him was already dyed red. The dead space pirate had an expression of stupefaction as his pale hand covered his neck.

Astra squatted down expressionlessly and pushed away the hand of the pirate covering his neck. A knife wound had cut into his skin and flesh, and scarlet blood had sprayed out from the neck. This handiwork wouldn’t give anyone a chance to survive.

He stood up silently, his gaze fixed at the path ahead.

The black aisle was like the mouth of a beast, ready to swallow everything.

Roux was never a man who had been defeated by anything apart from treasures.

Since they first met, the sense of danger and bloodlust he’d brought to Astra has never diminished.

But it was quite mystical that except for when they encountered each other for the first time where he was on guard, Astra didn’t feel any malice from Roux during their meeting this time.

—This was a really stupid feeling.

Astra stretched out his hand and silver spiritual energy condensed into the appearance of a long sword, imposingly flashing crackling lights and illuminating his cold profile in the dim environment.

He advanced ahead step by step, speed getting faster and faster and his spiritual energy becoming more and more aggressive.

Currently, Roux was the biggest threat on this spaceship.

Regardless of whether he was malicious towards them or not, Astra’s defenses against him have already been raised to the utmost.

 

In the spaceship’s hall.

Heavy breathings were being suppressed as the sense of death compelled everyone to exert all their strength.

But even with all their efforts, they couldn’t stop Roux’s cat-like attacks.

“Shit…”

Alf, who was leaning against a corner in the wall, had a grim expression. His body had been slashed open into dozens of wounds by a sharp blade, and the mending liquid was slowly working on it. “Roux, that lunatic!”

They were sure that they haven’t offended the mad dog Roux who had disappeared for a full month, so who the fuck knows why he was going crazy again!

Percy was injured more severely than him. His right arm had been severed. His face was sweaty, and the pain from genetic recombination made it difficult for him to maintain his senses. Spiritual energy was camouflaging them. “Boss, we- we’ll be discovered by him.”

Roux, the only person in the interstellar who can compete with entire space pirate crews by himself.

Alf met him only three years ago.

Their spaceship robbed a commercial spaceship passing by Roux’s territory. That same night, Roux descended onto their spaceship.

“You’re too daring, Alf.”

The masked man said this sentence.

The aftermath of that sentence made their group of space pirates unable to close their eyes for several days and nights because the scene in their dream was more frightening and shudder-inducing than hell.

Time eventually took away the fear Roux had brought, but now, Roux had appeared again.

He appeared for no reason and boarded Red Skull’s spaceship yet again like a nightmare.

All their developed machines were like jokes in front of him. This man seemed to have become stronger than before—so strong that even the machines couldn’t detect the fluctuation of his spiritual energy.

Percy gritted his teeth and swallowed a white pill. Blue veins protruded on his neck and face, whimpers of pain leaked from between his teeth, and the growth rate of his broken arm accelerated once more. “Boss.”

After making a decision, Percy squeezed out a word from his teeth, “Flee.”

Abandon the ship and escape with a small spacecraft.

Alf firmly closed his eyes, and when he opened it again, he was already resolute. He ran toward the spacecraft and sternly commanded, “Set the spaceship’s self-detonation sequence and start it after we escape.”

He would rather blow up the spaceship than hand over such a large resource.

It was best to blow it up together with Roux.

He smiled maliciously, the scar on his face becoming distorted.

After Alf and Percy disappeared at their end, Astra walked out from the side.

Damn it!

Blow up the spaceship?

He didn’t know how big and how far of a calamity the bombing of such a huge spaceship would be. He only knew that he needed to wake his teammates up and leave quickly.

However, as soon as he turned around, he faced a masked face.

Roux still had gloves on, and at this moment, those gloves had already been unavoidably splashed with blood.

He walked out of the dark with a leisurely gait as if he were in his backyard garden. “You ran out.”

Astra suddenly calmed down.

If Roux was still here, then that means they wouldn’t be blown up.

“Hey,” remembering his guess and how he sounded out the other earlier, he immediately grinned, “I feel that you treat me quite specially.”

Roux looked at him and said nothing.

“I’ll count to three. If you don’t speak, it’s tacit approval.” Astra, “3— 1.”

He directly omitted the 2.

Roux was amused, causing his laughter containing grains of sand to jump in the air.1According to Baidu, having sand in your mouth means eloquence, or freely flowing from the mouth. If you know an accurate meaning associated with laughter, pls do tell~

The smile on Astra’s face was his signature smile, which makes people feel happy when they see it. He walked toward Roux while keeping a stranger’s distance, in an attempt to sell out his homosexuality in exchange for information. “What do you want by following us?”

But Roux replied with, “People are coming.”

“Who?”

“Your people.”

He stepped back and went deep into the darkness. “My sweet2小朋友 means little friend but xfaustus translated it as My sweet…. I’ll trust xfaustus since I haven’t read till the end of this novel., if you want to know my purpose, it’s better to say more good things that make me happy.”

This was simple.

But Astra didn’t want to satisfy him.

He took one deep gaze at Roux, slowly backed up, then turned to hurry towards the control room.

Roux paused in the darkness, it wasn’t until the person was no longer there that he hmph3哼笑一声: It’s a nasally hmph but with a hint of a smirk as if amused. Couldn’t find the right word..

…Vile?4This is in reference to what Astra said in chapter 17:
“I was thinking that as well.” Astra laughed darkly. “That guy is vile to the extreme, why would he have the time to bother us?”

Wen’s brow flicked upward in an expression of interest. “Vile?”

Not only vile, he’s also gay.

In that case, in order to live up to this evaluation, he had to show him what vile was.

 

In the control room.

As soon as Astra entered, he saw Alf and Percy lying stiffly on the ground. When he walked inside, he discovered that they were still alive, breathing tense and rapid, with both fear and anger on their faces. They couldn’t move anything except the pupils of their eyes.

The two men who were previously mighty were now cutting sorry figures. Alf’s eyes were fiery, his clothes were soaked with sweat, and his hair stuck disorderly to his face.

Astra didn’t have the time to take care of them. There was an approaching spaceship shown on the monitor and the spaceship bore the symbol of Solaris Military Academy. Roux didn’t lie to him, but he couldn’t do anything in the face of the complicated control room, so he could only go back to find technical staff.
