Female Protagonist is a Blackened Villainess (GL) - Chapter 45
Translator & Editor: Nothingisit4me
Long Shiyan’s consciousness was fuzzy, and she was completely unaware of her current situation. She only knew that she successfully led the magical beasts away, but was soon cornered by a different group of magical beasts. After the continuous usage of wide-ranged magic attacks, the damage she received was extremely serious. To escape the encirclement of magical beasts, she snuck into a river, intending to wash away her body’s bloody smell. And then…she lost consciousness.
She couldn’t open her eyes. She felt as if her body wasn’t her own. She couldn’t control it as another layer of darkness engulfed her, leaving her with only a bit of consciousness left. This was Long Shiyan’s second time feeling this way. The first time was in her mother’s belly…
Had she already died?
It didn’t seem so……
She apparently returned back to life…
After an unknown amount of time, Long Shiyan heard a familiar voice. She was finally sure that she was not reborn again, perhaps in the strictest sense!
However, she still couldn’t open her eyes nor feel any sensations on her body.
“Welcome back, Host! You really worried Qian Qian when you died, but it took a lot of effort to save you! Humph, Host has to repay me later.”
When her consciousness started to clear up, System Qian Qian seemed to be able to read her mood. She merely smiled and stated, “Host, you must feel that this situation is very strange, what happened back there?”
“Uh.” After a long time, Long Shiyan explained the situation to Qian Qian.
“What’s a good way to explain it…” System Qian Qian sighed. “To put it simply, Host, you are now dead. When you jumped into the river to escape the magical beast horde, you were swallowed up by a magical beast that lived in the river. Now, there is nothing left of your body.”
“Oh, so it was like that……”
“Host, shouldn’t you be worried? Perhaps, you haven’t grasped your current situation yet? Since you died, you can’t do anything. You can’t even resurrect your parents anymore…” System Qian Qian said in a matter-of-fact tone.
“Since you’re still talking to me even when I’m currently dead, doesn’t this show that I have an opportunity to resurrect?”
“Host, your thoughts are far too optimistic. You’re currently just a residual spirit, yet you want to be resurrected. What kind of joke is this? Your physical body was completely eradicated. Even if I wanted to resurrect you, there is nothing that I can do. Hehe. Haven’t you reconciled with your death yet?”
“Right now, I feel quite relaxed!” After a long time, Long Shiyan answered.
She wasn’t lying when she said that she was relaxed. Her thoughts wandered as she loosened up. Without a body, she didn’t need to train. She wanted to fall asleep like this without having to think about System Qian Qian’s contradictory words and the various things regarding the world.
“Well, it’s true! Do you regret your choice? You sacrificed your life to save Zi Linglong and others, but it’s a pity that not only did you lose your life but you also lost any hope of saving your parents. Knowing this, shouldn’t you regret your actions?”
“This was the choice I made.”
“As for my parents, I can only tell them that I’m sorry.”
System Qian Qian said, “You are indeed a fool for doing such stupid actions!”
Long Shiyan replied, “I already know!”
“Forget it, I will report what happened during the months after your death. I think you should be very interested in them.” System Qian Qian paused and did not wait for Long Shiyan to respond before continuing, “After your death, the Holy Spirit Magic School underwent several great reforms. The two old men recognized their mistakes and have now given up their positions to others. This is very different from the original novel. It is also worth mentioning that after your death, the school had a grand mourning session.”
Long Shiyan asked, “This…would you care to explain?”
“It’s very unusual that Zi Linglong didn’t leave. After hearing the news of your unfortunate demise, it would be completely okay for her to lie down and rest since nothing else happened. However, she is currently in school doing the duties that the head of the Student Holy Spirit Group should’ve done, which is a great way to deal with the group’s problems that sprung after your death. Oh, your old teammates are also with her.”
“Hey, are you finally interested? How should I put it? Zi Linglong is doing pretty well and she remained awfully silent in regards to the news of your death. Furthermore, in comparison to you, she’s doing way better at the duties your old position had. But I always felt like she was learning from you! Also, the event where you saved the entire school was exaggerated several times over. You have a great status within the school, which is really worth celebrating.”
Long Shiyan: “…”
“Hey! There’s also news about Long Aotian…”
“Your plan had been implemented perfectly. On the sixth day after your death, Yu Qingrou finally came to the Holy Spirit Magic School and successfully escaped her fate of being captured by Long Aotian like in the original story. However, your death exceeded our expectations, and your aunt should already have heard about it by now!”
Long Shiyan became silent. She was the one who guided Yu Qingrou to learn a lot about surviving in the wild, but she still felt uneasy. Therefore, when Yu Shu became seriously ill, Yu Qingrou already started traveling to the Holy Spirit Magic School a few months ahead of time. Therefore, this led to Yu Qingrou escaping from Long Aotian’s time of encounter and avoid being captured.
Along the way, Yu Qingrou was planning to celebrate a birthday with her and provide a nice surprise.
Unfortunately, she could not see this nice surprise herself.
“Oh, yes, according to my gathered information, Long Aotian had finally arrived in Doomsday City and repelled the famous Wolf Fang Bandit Group. If nothing unexpected happens, he should be able to arrive at the Holy Spirit Magic School in half a month. You should understand the consequences of his arrival to the Holy Spirit Magic School. The people you want to protect may not be able to escape from him.”
Observing the clumps of oversized flowers in front of her, System Qian Qian floated in the air. She opened her mouth and asked, “So, what are you going to do?”
Before the two was a big lake. However, they could not see the area beyond the lake, and several large, white, and exotic flowers were scattered in the middle. A little “elemental fairy” was floating above the lake.
Long Shiyan was silent for a long time before she replied, “Humans are creatures with emotions. While I can’t explain these emotions to you, you can keep your opinions to yourself. You can also question my decisions, but you have to understand that I am very different from you. Even if I could act decisively, I can’t be as cold-blooded as you are. You’re like a robot.”
“Well, I may not understand you, but you have to know that the reason why you can be resurrected this time is because of my headstrong nature. In the future, there will be no next chance. You must understand that to save you, I had to cross through several large planes before discovering the inheritance of the Flower God. You must cherish this opportunity that I have granted you.” System Qian Qian paused and remained taciturn before answering.
“Do you still remember the Flower God?” System Qian Qian asked.
“That’s good. Then you should understand what hardships I had to go through. You also have to understand that even if I am an all-purpose system, there are some things that I can’t deal with. Currently, your life is secured by the inheritance of the Flower God.”
The Flower God, also known as the Fragrant God, was one of the many renowned gods during ancient times. She was famous for her body fragrance and was also known as the God of Nature. In the historical times, the God of War, known for his military prowess, discovered the Flower God by chance. Because he could not stand the temptation of her aroma, he wanted to forcibly possess it.
The Flower God hated the God of War, but she couldn’t go against the God of War by herself. In the end, she secretly contacted her friend, the Radiant God, and with the help of the Radiant God, she was able to defeat the God of War. After the death of the War God, his brother, the Thunder God, was enraged, so he killed the Flower God.
After the Flower God died, she left a curse, causing the descendants of the God of War to be forever betrayed by those around them for the rest of their lives.
Long Shiyan accepted the inheritance of the Flower God, but the original Long Shiyan only accepted a small portion of the inheritance in the original book. Later, even if she could encounter an opportunity for a complete inheritance, the original Long Shiyan would renounce.
This was because the complete inheritance of the Flower God would make it necessary to carry out the will of the Flower God. In other words, she must destroy the descendants of the God of War. However, the descendants of God of War had already declined as any traces of them were missing.
If she did complete the inheritance, then Long Aotian, who had the God of War on his side, would become her enemy. Therefore, the original Long Shiyan gave up this powerful opportunity to accept the inheritance of the Flower God.
Long Shiyan understood that her troubles only increased.
There was an acute burst of pain in her mind. Ancient memories of a beautiful woman’s mournful encounter flashed before her eyes, just like a movie screen.
After an unknown amount of time passed, Long Shiyan’s consciousness slowly returned. She discovered that she was surrounded by a variety of flowers. In front of her was a beautiful woman in a verdant dress. The woman’s skin was fairer than snow. Her face was better than most, and her appearance was not worse than Long Yuqing’s.
Long Shiyan looked at her in a daze.
“You are my inheritor!” She spoke, her voice a little ethereal.
“You’re a bad person!”
Long Shiyan was flabbergasted by those words, but she could only nod.
“I can give you another chance at life, but you can’t live that long, so don’t waste my inheritance.”
Long Shiyan sighed and said, “I know where the God of War’s inheritance is. I can seal it and prevent anyone from contacting it. If anyone wants to obtain it, I will kill them at all costs.”
“Hahaha…” The Flower God suddenly laughed. “In that case, it’s not that difficult to give you the power of a God, but your current condition is too weak. At most, I can remake your body, but to preserve your life, you will need to obtain a divine power and reach the God realm yourself. Well, time is up, so I should go back to rest.”
As her voice sounded, Long Shiyan fell asleep again.
At the same time, the strange white flower bud floating on the lake finally bloomed. Within the flower was a naked girl. The girl was asleep within the flowers, and her appearance would attract anyone to pamper her. On her white arms was a pink lotus mark. In addition, on the girl’s head was a pair of furry ears, which coexisted with her original human ears. However, they did not seem too out of place.
The girl woke up and slowly sat on the flower buds, putting her legs together to cover her hidden parts. She gazed at the “elemental fairy” floating in the air.
“You finally woke up, but we have been here for a long time. You can’t possibly be dissatisfied with your current body. Don’t you know? The Flower God refused my request to change your body’s appearance and set it for you personally.” System Qian Qian whipped out an extra-large mirror.
Long Shiyan looked at her new body, feeling that it was not much different from her previous one. Her body was still small, but her facial features had changed a lot. Furthermore, there was a pair of strange ears on her head.
“Why didn’t you make my body bigger?”
“Even if you don’t like it, there is no way to change it. The Flower God made it herself, but you have to understand that she used to be treated like you. Now that you inherited her ability, even if you become an adult, you will still have her fragrance. Therefore, the body of a child is still the best choice,” System Qian Qian replied.
Long Shiyan’s gaze moved to two pairs of ears on her head and frowned. “So, what are these?” She pointed at her pair of cat ears.
“Sigh, there really was no way around it.” System Qian Qian shrugged. “I believe that you have also discovered that your body’s dark Douqi has disappeared. These cat ears are to purify your darkness and to conceal your identity. From now on, you are a member of the beast cat race. You can understand the language of all the cats in the world.”
Long Shiyan: “…”
(TLN: Did anyone who hasn’t read the book/MTL guess that this would happen? Poor Long Shiyan, dying yet benefitting others because of her death. At least we get furry Long Shiyan…
