Lucia Side Story 7.6: The Beginning of All Stories

PREVIOUS |INDEX| THE END

THE BEGINNING OF ALL STORIES(6)

 

“Godfather!”

Baden quickly ran over as soon as his subordinates told him that the ominous aura covering the devil’s forest had disappeared.

The man sitting on his knees by the bedside slowly turned his head. But his face wasn’t one that Baden knew.

The godfather Baden remembered was a mysterious man who never aged and remained the same from when he was a child till even decades later. But the youth of his godfather seemed to have disappeared overnight. His godfather was no longer a young man. Whoever saw him now would say he was obviously a middle-aged man.

“Baden.”

“Is…is it really you…godfather?”

“Say goodbye to your mother.”

“Huh? Mother…? Mother!”

Baden rushed to the bed and broke down wailing. Cael stood up stepped aside a little, waiting for Baden to sufficiently say goodbye to his mother.

When Baden proposed building his mother’s grave in this place, Cael shook his head.

“You should take her with you. If you make your mother’s grave here, no one will be able to check on her and it will soon be abandoned.”

“What about godfather…”

“As you can see, time has begun to flow for me.”

Baden swallowed hard. His godfather was aging quickly as if he was paying the price for maintaining his youth for so many years. When Baden saw him this morning, his godfather looked like a middle-aged man in his later years but in just a few hours, he looked like he had added 10 more years.

“I will escort you. Please come with me.”

“No. My grave will be here.”

“Then I should also…”

“Go.”

“Godfather.”

Cael placed his pendant in Baden’s hand.

“This pendant is connected with your mother’s soul. If your descendants ever find themselves in a crisis, it will be a great help to preserving your legacy.”

Baden took the pendant carefully and put it in his pocket, like it was very valuable. His godfather was a unique individual with a very mysterious set of ability that the average person couldn’t even imagine. A gift from his godfather would not be an ordinary thing.

“I have a request to make.”

“Yes, please. You can ask anything, godfather.”

“Don’t leave any word about me to your future generations. I don’t want to leave any trace of my existence behind.”

“…Yes.”

“Today will be the last day you and I see each other. Don’t ever come here again.”

“Godfather. To me, you were both my teacher and my father. A child abandoning his father is an unfilial act that I cannot consent to.”

“This is my last request. I do not want to show my end to anyone.”

“Godfather…”

Baden’s eyes were filled with tears like he would burst out crying at any moment and from his expression, Cael found the mischievous little boy who used play around him. Evangeline and Baden were miracles that occurred in his dried up life.

In this unpredictable huge world order, he was nothing but a weak and feeble existence.  Out of everything he had pursued so desperately, this was the only truth he had gained.

He gave Baden a faint smile.

“Perhaps I am the same. I wish you were my son, Baden.”

Baden bawled like a child.

* * *

Baden didn’t want to leave at all but he had to quickly deal with his mother’s body, so he had no choice but to leave his godfather’s mansion.

When the funeral was over, about ten days had passed. Baden went back to the mansion but the huge building had collapsed and turned into sand. In addition, there was no sign of his godfather anywhere.

Baden felt so stunned that for an entire day, he merely sat down, looking at the pile of rubble.

Time passed and the curtains rose to a period of upheaval. Hundreds of divided forces destroyed each other, or swallowed the other up, growing bigger and bigger and unifying to create a country. Baden made a name for himself as a meticulous subject in the founding of Xenon and was bestowed a title and land. \In this new country, Baden created a new family that carried his name.

This was the beginning of the Baden family.

 

 

{THE END}

 


Translator’s Corner:

It has been a ride translating Lucia (for me, at least). Translating this book was my first time ever trying my hands on translating so it definitely has a special place in my heart. I didn’t initially plan on continuing to translate, let alone finishing the book. Was gonna pop out a few chapters, then hop off the grid… *cough*

My initial translations were… atrocious (in my opinion). But you guys were nice about it so I did the next one. And the next one….and I just kept doing it. Hah. I think I improved too. (Actually, I really improved. Hell, this book had me sleeping with the korean-english dictionary.)

I really have to thank you guys for the immense positivity and support. It kept me going so so many times. Thanks for coming along this ride with me. [Lucia] was a journey I really enjoyed, and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

I’ll be working on my next project [You’ve Got the Wrong House, Villain]. If you’re looking for something to read, do take a look and see if it is right up your alley. (As before, I do not read much ahead because I like to enjoy the book alongside the readers, but it had been a very fun novel so far.)

The update schedule is currently 2/week but as I have finished [Lucia], I plan to slowly increase that. Right after I get some rest ofc.

That said, I hope you all have a great day and enjoy yourselves!

-Miss Ruby.

    Hey there Ruby and other readers. This was an awesome story that really touched my heart and I know I’m late or didn’t even follow it (I just finished the story despite picking it up a bit after the love confession chapter) but this story really left a huge impression on my heart and I’m just gonna say I’m glad that this all happened and I’ll hopefully interact with y’all in the future. This was a great story thank you so much for letting me and everyone else here experience it to its full glory.

    Thank you soooooo much from the bottom of my non-Korean speaking heart. I finally picked this up after reading so many recommendations and I sure am glad I did it. I was on this constantly for a week unyil I finally finished the side story this morning at 10am. I was a bit shocked and heart dropped to my belly when I read “this is the last side story.”
    Oh, how I want it to continue.
    Although mid-thirties is just the beginning of life, having been through all those years with this super lovely couple from their young age gave me lots of feels.

    I will eventually re-read this story. I had all my fave chapters bookmarked.

    Ruby, you worked so hard on this book and I am so glad that you just kept going. Thank you SOOOOO much!! I truly miss Luica and Hugh. I’m so glad they came together for all of us.

    Gosh…Sorry…I just cant let go. Lol

      Dear miss Ruby,

      I would like to say thank you for translating this beautiful story. I always wanted to read this but waiting for the translation to be completed. And here I am, crying by myself after finishing the whole book for 3 days. I wish the author will create another story for Damien and his friends. This story definitely one of my all time favourites. Once again, thank you. And I look forward to your next project 🙂

    Hello,
    I am ashamed to say that I began to read this story on another website. I was very happy to find it and didn’t think more than that until I found that it was published on this site.
    I am very proud to say that I immediately switched to your website to read it!
    Thank you for taking the time to translate it for our great enjoyment.

    What happened to Jude that day he didn’t show up.
    Does Lucia tell Hugo about their life together in the alternative universe?
    Otherwise this novel was reall uh good. Thank you for translating it.

    I was writing a hugh thank you. But it crashed and all my feelings and efforts I put in the text to thank you were gone.
    So I just simply want to say thank you for all your hard work. It isn’t easy to translate a novel and to preserve the meaning and feelings. To show the characters in the light the author wanted them to shine.
    I think you did really great and I am so so grateful, that you shared this wonderful story with us. I was giggeling, smiling, full of fear and sometimes I cried. So many emotions were in this story and I’m thankful, that I was able to sink into it.
    It’s hard to let this story go, but the side stories were a great help to say goodbye.
    I did read the story for quite some time. And even to read the comments behind each chapter was also fun.
    So thanks to the author for creating this great story. Thank you Miss Ruby for the translation. And thank you to the persons that helped Miss Ruby out.
    I hope you all stay healthy in the time of Corona!

    I was hooked.
    Thank you so much for this translation. 4 days I spent reading with very little sleep because I needed to know what happened next, and while dealing with 4 children the youngest (almost 3) is actually named evangeline.
    One of the best procrastinating sessions I’ve had 😁 (uni assessments and housework overdue)

    And the happy ending ♥️☺️ I just wish there was a side story about Damian’s gf, and the mugwort issue (for a little while there I honestly thought that perhaps they would confide in the king, or something, but I suppose Eve getting married and having children could be the duke’s heir.)

    I am one of those people who started reading Lucia in the manhwa and since it’s not yet finished, it was always a cliffhanger for me. I want to know how the story will progress. How will Lucia and Hugo fall in love and so on. Luckily, I saw your page and I spent most of my time reading the novel. Thank you Ms. Ruby for your effort in translating the novel! It was wonderfully translated. All the feelings in the story sinked in that my heart hurts sometimes even the fluff and the other things. Haha! My quarantine time has become so satisfying. I will read your other translations as well. Thank you again and stay safe! ❤

    Oh My… I started to read Lucia’s webtoon the last week, and there was a lot of people writing in the comment section about the novel and this website… And goooooshhh I just did live for this all this days. It was just perfect! I laughed, cried, screamed and more with this beautiful novel. Thank you so much Miss Ruby for the translation of ever single chapter that I’ve readed.

    I feel so emotional right now.
    We are in the middle of this Pandemia and this was the perfect way to feel accompanied (living alone this days because the Pandemia). I did read every side note and comment. I did feel that this was like a family-friend group (I laughed so hard with all those theories about the characters and the interactions between them, or just the comments about the hot relationship between Lucia and the Duke hahaha).

    Thank you again Miss Ruby, I’ll never forget this novel, it will always have a place in my ❤️.

    I’ll check the other project too!

    I had come here for YGTWHV and was smitten with your translations and magnificent way of writing. I know it sounds overly exaggerated but I think that was still not enough for me to express my gratitude and awe towards you Miss Ruby. I had never felt so alive and absorbed by a novel before. I know the true writer also deserve the praise but you had made it much more colourful and it felt like I was living in ‘Lucia’ world for the time I start to read it and till the end. It took me awhile to adjust to the reality that Lucia was only a story. It is truly amazing of an experience. I wish I could just live and watch over every character novels that you translate and write. You made them real despite the fact that they are only a fantasy. I am truly in love with it. Please, dont ever stop translating and bring the characters alive. I wish I could write more but it’ll be too lonng, I could even make a novel of how much I am in love with your translations. Sincerely from the bottom of my heart,

    Your Fan

    Ruby-sama thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication and commitment in translating this lovely novel, it was truly a joy to read. In the end, I was able to get over the seemingly rushed resolution to Philip’s threat, since the succeeding side-stories extended way beyond the epilogue and provided so much uwuus that it hurts to have come this far and finally get some sleep hopefully….nvm damien’s mysterious love affair which maybe the original author will write a sequel to someday if it isn’t in the works already, I can only hope… but the only thing that bothers me which I waited until the very end to know was whatever happened to Norman’s house that she put in Lucia’s name?! There was no mention of her actually renting it out which is such a shame as that house would have been the only asset to her name which was truly hers, I feel like the author forgot to wrap it up cos what even was the point of mentioning her re-visiting it the last time if she wasn’t going to put it up on the market or make use of it just because she was set up for life as the duchess…it was a gift from Norman so I feel like it deserved a little more afterthought than that. Oh well. For something labeled under “smut”, the story really exceeded my expectations beautifully, the depth and character development of even the minor side characters was so fluffy. Again thank you so much!

    Thank you for the unforgettable wonderful ride you translated. You made me find a person to look up to and actually change myself for the better. Lucia was such gem of a novel and an excellent example of an aspire to be person.

    Thank you so much for the translating!!!
    Argh, I could have read at least twice as much, the story could have gone on forever and I would still love it.
    Also, what would happen to Damien?? Would he still die in a barbarian ambush??? And I wished we would see Hugo tell Damien about their family’s history, but alas, we can only hope for another side-story if the author ever wants to revisit their work.
    Thank you again!

    I can’t believed I cried at the end. I hope Cael got to watch baby Evangeline be reborn and be happy. (Wow I’m tearing up again! What?!) What a way to end the story, it was heartbreaking yet hopeful. I’m really glad the author gave us so much back story/epilogues. Most authors stop as soon as the baby is born or right when the ML and MC get together. It leaves you unsatisfied, you just sit there wondering how the 2 of them are getting along. You can feel robbed not getting to see the 2 people you have been waiting to get together be together. It was great seeing Hugh and Vivian (Lucia) as a couple. It was nice having so much fluff and seeing Lucia become Mother to so many children. (DAFAQ is wrong with me I’m tearing up again). This novel was a really different read from a lot of other light novels. Thinking back on it, there wasn’t an over arcing plot in story. Which is NOT a negative! The author just embraced the fact that her story was about romance. It really was just a story about 2 people’s lives and how they impacted people. The Author didn’t feel the need to have them find the King’s would be assassin or save the world. Just 2 interesting people becoming more and more fluffy, AND making other people they come in contact with feel fluffy. (Yes I am including Hugh. He amplifies Lucia’s fluff powers by x100 causing a devastating outcome for all.) And man was that smut great! Woo… *fanning self*
    I have a few criticisms though. Some things seemed a little contrived and unnecessary. Like the repeating talk about illegitimate children and affairs. The author kept saying how conservative Xenon is…. but honey I don’t think it is. People allowed to have affairs left and right. And those illegitimate children that are allowed as family member’s? For a “European-esque” royal society that is very liberal.
    Also that incident with the countess, I feel like the rumors wouldn’t have been that bad for Lucia. Infact I think people would’ve been very sympathetic towards her. They really could’ve spun the story to make the countess look horrible. David could’ve been dealt with. I don’t really buy the whole he had to kill them. It really didn’t make sense.
    She seemed to leave some things open or some loose ends. With so many other side stories it seemed incomplete to leave stuff out. First: I need to know more about Hugh’s alternate wife. Like I was waiting for that little side story. I’m so curious about it.
    Did Lucia tell her dream to Hugh yet? Or was that just implied?
    Did I miss what was happening with Ted? That girl who Hana-kimi’ed her way into Daimen’s heart? I wanted to know about that amazing girl. I probably missed it while I was reading, can’t wait to start re-reading it.
    I feel like the author will eventually go back to this story though. You can really tell she had fun writing it.
    (Sorry for the Essay)
    AND for Miss Ruby.
    Thank you for all your hard work. You do a really great job translating. Thank you for sticking with it and not taking on other projects and letting this one die. Also thank you for the Brackets () indicating who is speaking. It was really helpful. I look forward to reading your other translations.

    What a ride! Waahh! Thank you Miss Ruby for sticking with and translating this wonderful story of Lucia! 💕 had fun devouring this for 4 days while on community quarantine.

    I just wished the author extended some parts and answered some of the things like…
    – Does Lucia tell Hugh about them ending up together in the alternate dream future?
    – Will Damian meet Ted again and will they end up together?
    – Who will Evangeline end up with? Hehe
    – Where is Chris?
    – I wanna see Roy’s love story too, I think it’ll be interesting
    – I wanted another Taran lil baby tooo

    Thank you for all your hard work in translating and editing this. I loved the story and all the characters. It was very well written and your translation was good and I could understand the story and flow very well. I know you mentioned that it has already gone through multiple edits, so I had the benefit of reading after all the edits have already been made thus far, but it was still good that you kept going and have come to a point where only minor edits may be needed but not necessary to enjoy the story.

    Thanks for the hardwork translator-nim, editor-nim! *patpat* Don’t be too hard on yourself, you did really well translating it to english, even the early chapters. They’re easy-to-read and draw me deep into it 😊
    Like seriously, this series is so hard to put-down (yes, I devoured this in 4days).
    Now I think it’s gonna be hard to enjoy another read for me to move on to *sigh* (any suggestion?)

    This had me crying all the chapter 😭😭💕. Thank you so much for taking your time in translating this amazing novel. It was incredible reading this, specially the extras, cuz I read the novel last year and left it there because extras weren’t translated yet. And today, I by chance, came again to your page and found this. So, it was very nostalgic. Again, thank you for your hard work. This novel will be in my heart 💕

    Never in my life that I’ve felt so grateful that I learned English as my second language (now i want to study Korean as well!). Your translation is excellent and I truly love the story. Reading the story, I can imagine a world where there are different people with different lives tangle together. This story, Lucia and Hugh will never get out of my head for a very long time. Again, thank you so much!

    Hello I am from Argentina. I wanted to ask, could I use your translation to translate into Spanish? I use GoogleTranslator, because I am bad at writing in English, but since extras 4, 5, 6 and 7 are not achieved, I wanted to translate and share them (of course I would put your credits and a link so that they come here to read the English version) I am not going to earn money from this, but since I tried to translate it I wanted to share it, and I will not do it without your permission first.

    Thank you so much.
    Sorry if you don’t understand, my English is bad.

      Hi, I don’t wanna give anyone permission to translate because my translation already has errors and those errors will be translated.
