Translating Korean Novels


Previous| Toc | Next

Siren checked Yuri’s face to see if Yuri was upset by what she said. Of course, Yuri thought nothing of it but Siren was restless when she saw Yuri’s expressionless face. Then she squeezed her eyes shut and snatched the thing in Yuri’s hand.

“I don’t… need it! But since you want to give me so much, I’ll make an exception and accept it this time!”

As always, Siren couldn’t be honest with herself.

“That aside, Odin hasn’t come, right?”

Yuri’s question reminded Siren of what she forgot.

“Oh, right! I was looking for him because I have something to ask! When is Crow coming?”

“I can’t contact him, so I don’t know.”

When she heard Yuri’s reply, Siren’s eyes widened slightly. For Odin not to contact Arachne… somehow, it didn’t seem like something you could take lightly.

Siren carefully asked Yuri:

“Should I send a bird out to look for him?”

At that, Yuri looked at Siren with new eyes.

“Oh, right. You also have that kind of ability.”

“Are you looking down on me right now?!”

“No, do me a favor.”

Siren’s short temper flared but at Yuri’s following words, her fierceness melted. The thought of Arachne asking her for a favor made her lips curve in excitement.

“Ehem, mmm! Since you ask like that, it can’t be helped. I’ll have to use some strength.”

And inwardly, she was elated.

‘I don’t have to fear looking into Arachne’s house now!’

Of course, her joy was only momentary because Yuri’s next words shut it down.

“That doesn’t mean you can look inside my house.”

“I-I wont! Do you think I’m that interested in you?”

Siren’s conscience was pricked once again. With her expectations foiled, she was slightly sulky and fiddled with her wings. From the looks of things, she would have to push back asking Yuri about Lakis Avalon in her house.

* * *

The next day.

A dazzling carriage stopped in front of the coffee house on Blue Ferret. People were shocked by the appearance of a luxurious carriage adorned with gold sequin-covered jewels.


A while later, a well-dressed handsome man stepped down. He took a glance around then he frowned as if he didn’t like something.

‘Quite the shoddy neighborhood.’

Then finally, the man’s dark eyes fell on the coffeehouse building in front of him.

‘Hmm, so this is meeting place of Kalian Crawford and Genos Sheldon?’

The reason Damon left the Alchemist Tower and came to the street of the common people was because of the report he got recently.

It said that lately, Kalian Crawford stopped by this place at an abnormal degree. Of course, the person who provided the information said that Kalian didn’t seem to meet the man who looked like Genos Sheldon. They also added that in their opinion, Kalian might be involved in an undercover investigation.

It was quite the sound reasoning.

But Damon’s gut told him that there was something very important about this coffeehouse. To find out what that was, Damon stepped into the building in front of him.

* * *

He stepped into the store of commoners for the first time in his life and as expected, it was filled with the smell of cheap tea.

Gilbert had been watching ever since Damon’s carriage pulled up in front of the store, so he immediately ran over to greet the customer.

“W-What would you like to order, sir?”

“Anything, bring the least pathetic option.”

It was a much more difficult order than the one from the high noble, Kalian Crawford.

Gilbert painfully smiled and replied.

“Do you mean…the most expensive menu?”

Damon looked at the owner of the coffeehouse with a bit of annoyance. Gilbert dried up under that gaze.

“Bring it. I’ll see how it is.”

Damon said, clicking his tongue under his breath. In his mind, the entire menu was the same. After that, he looked over the store’s interior. As expected, the inside was just as pathetic as the outside.

He thought Kalian Crawford and Genos Sheldon had quite the shoddy taste to pick a store like this of all places. There were other classy places to have a secret meeting. Either ways, he came here because he was suspicious, but this was disappointing.

The store didn’t seem to have anything special about it. It was just an ordinarily common and insignificant-looking place.

‘…there aren’t any bugs here, right?’

Damon’s gaze swept around. Soon he felt uncomfortable and knit his brows. Although the sanitation wasn’t too bad, the building itself looked too shabby compared to the mansion he lived in, so he felt unsettled.

Now that he had come himself, it didn’t make any sense. Why would Kalian Crawford keep coming to this place?

“Here’s the drink you ordered.”

Right then, a female clerk at the coffeehouse came up to his table with a tray. Damon turned his head, thinking about asking the owner of the coffeehouse directly about Kalian Crawford.

“Oi, call the owner of this store right n…”

And the next moment, the lady with dark hair and red eyes came into his sight. Damon’s eyes went wide open.

* * *

‘That’s Damon Salvatore, isn’t it?’

Once he stepped down from the carriage in front of the store, Yuri recognized his face.

‘What’s he doing in this neighborhood?’

She was puzzled but she figured he might have just come here to do something else. Even without this, Snow whom she assumed to be Genos Sheldon had been a regular patron of the store for a while and lately, Kalian Crawford had been coming frequently. So the rarity of the male characters in the novel had gone down.

Speaking of which, Anne-Marie and Kalian Crawford.

At first, they acted like they weren’t interested in each other but nowadays, they were meeting separately and seemed to be discussing something in secret.

Could they be working out something?

But Kalian Crawford was…no good. Anne-Marie was too precious. Was this meeting okay?

While Yuri frowned in contemplation, Damon Salvatore entered the coffeehouse.


She heard Gilbert suck in a breath.

With the fact that he blatantly parked a carriage in front of the coffeehouse, Damon looked like a nobleman from every angle. So Gilbert looked somewhat uneasy as he glanced at the door to the store.

Unlike Yuri, Gilbert didn’t seem to have gotten used to dealing with nobles despite Kalian Crawford’s frequent visits.

Damon looked around the store with a frown on his face then found an empty seat. Seeing that, Gilbert quickly ran over to him.

“W-What would you like to order, sir?”

“Anything, bring the least pathetic option.”

When she heard what Damon said, Yuri almost burst into laughter.

Putting aside the fact that he was crossing his legs and acting high and mighty, didn’t he seems like one of those second-generation chaebols that throw money around in some melodrama? [1]

Come to think of it, Damon Salvatore was just as much of a gold spoon as Kalian Crawford.

“Ms. Yuri, the order…”

“The most expensive one, I got it.”

A while later, Gilbert came into the kitchen wiping his cold sweat. Since Yuri could hear their conversation from a distance, she was already preparing the menu for Damon Salvatore.

Just like Kalian, Damon Salvatore didn’t suit this place so she had no idea what they was playing at by coming inside.

“I’ll take it to him.”

“W-Will you be okay, Ms. Yuri? That customer doesn’t seem to have a good personality.”

“Well, you get nervous around nobles, Mr. Gilbert.”

Yuri looked at Gilbert who was soaked in sweat like it had rained, then she picked up the tray. In the end, she was just bringing him the drink he ordered.

Moreover, although it was true that Damon had a prickly personality, he wasn’t the type to pick on innocent people for no reason.

“Here’s the drink you ordered.”

So Yuri approached the table where Damon sat without much thought.

“Oi, call the owner of this store right n…”

But Damon who was looking around the store suddenly asked for Gilbert. And the moment he turned to meet her gaze, his black eyes dilated.


Damon sprang to his feet and his knee banged against the table. The table shook and the liquid in the teacup also shook with it.

“Are you okay?”

Yuri courteously asked, looking at Damon who seemed very surprised by something.

“Should I call Mr. Gilbert? He’s the coffeehouse owner.”


Damon muttered a reply, staring intently at Yuri. He looked very shocked by something.

‘What is this?’

As the recipient of such a burdensome gaze, Yuri frowned slightly.
Only then did Damon seem to come to his senses. He fixed his expression and sat down again.

“What happened?”

“Who knows.”

Gilbert hurriedly approached Yuri and asked in a whisper. But unsurprisingly, Yuri didn’t have an answer. After that, Damon’s strange behavior continued.

He sat quietly in his seat and stared at Yuri as she moved about the coffeehouse. His gaze was so intense, he might as well have bore a hole through Yuri.

  3. Karma95

    Oh boy lol
    Thanks for the chapter!


  4. Victoria Sobey

    Thank you for the updated chapter


  5. Cloud

    Calling it now. Yuri is Damon’s long lost daughter. Damon’s wife is probably MIA too just to make the feels hit harder.

    Thanks for the chap!


    • shell

      Damon is one of the second male leads along with Genos (Snow). so I don’t think Yuri is his daughter especially if she’s around Anne-Marie’s age. He’s the guy who invented all the stuff. He’s also one of the high nobles. They each represent a direction, North, South, East, West.


      • Vega

        Maybe he saw yuri when yuri still an experiment object… ?? Or he knew whoever the woman in picture and thinking they are the same person


    • Ssavilin

      Then how old is Damon?


      • Papivore

        Why is everyone forgetting about the portrait of Kalian’s family member who died? It was said Yuri looked exactly like her. It would be no surprise that Damon either met the person while alive or saw a portrait since he’s an acquaintance of Kalian. It would explain why he’s so shocked over seeing Yuri.


  6. Laura

    Gracias chicos por el regalo de cumple 🙂 ánimo!!!!


  7. Hssh

    Yuri’s harem is expanding ><


  8. Eca

    I began to think that yuri is some kind of hidden important character. Like she was the reason why the story flow like that and make other chara pluck to anne-marie in the original. Just my imaginary plot twist kkkk


  9. jkitten

    Thanks for the chapter. I started reading this because you translated Lucia, but honestly I like this more.


  10. Mitsuki000

    I bet he knows the woman that is in the portrait Crawford mentioned before. Thank you for your hard work!! <3


    • Mocha

      That was my thought too! Maybe she was created based on that woman or was some kind of secret offspring!


  11. Puppichow

    Hmmmm does this have to do with Yuri’s likeness to that aunt? Hmmm…


  12. Chan

    Wait, I think you mistyped Damon with Damian 😂 this remind me of Lucia all over again 🥺

    Thabk you for the chapter anyway!


    • Miss Ruby

      Omg thank you. I’ve been making that mistake more often than I should.


  13. Arashiya

    That was actually my thoughts, he must know whoever it is that looks like Yuri from the picture. The weird thing is, though. If I remember correctly from the earlier chapters, Yuri’s looks changed when she gained her ability.
    Which is my biggest hesitation in guessing that she’s somehow a child of an important person. I’ll have to go back and check the beginning.
    She was an orphan, that leaves plenty of room for a mysterious, noble parentage.

    Thank you so much for this chapter, fingers crossed that things remain smooth sailing for you from here on out. =)


    • Arashiya

      So yes, I did go back to check. She originally had golden blonde hair, same red eyes and was from a different area in Carnot as an orphan. So it’ll be interested to see the connection between her and the lady in the portrait.
      I’m excited to see the twists and turns the story takes.


    • Kami No Kitsune

      Before Yuri got her past life memories and current appearance (which is what she looked like in her past life) she was blonde with blue eyes, so I dont know if she could be related to the painting lady. Maybe that lady was a transmigrator or with a similar appearance?


    • Malacat

      The three “good” male leads keying up to Yuri being the identical match for mystery lady is interesting point for them to all be hung up on. As far as they and any one else is concerned she could have mysterious heritage connecting them due to her looks and she can’t refute them. She can’t really say she was experimented on and transformed into a completely different person. She’s already told Ann that she’s an orphan with no knowledge of her own origin or family.

      I’m betting half of the stuff main ML is talking to Ann about is Yuri, and what Ann knows about her. Snow alerted him about Ann being able to help the old family head but I bet the main reason they have half their meetings at the coffee house is to he can check Yuri out.


      • UwU

        Right! Right! I remembered in some chapter Anne Marie asked Yuri if someone lives with her.


  14. OHtheNovelty

    Thanks for the chapter! 😘


  15. kirindas

  17. lazykitty_99

    Chunni Damon comes ,Yuri crosses him in his mind ~
    Only Lakis and Anna Marie remains in race >< . Looking forward to Yuri appearance mystery .


  18. FallingStar

    I think Lakis will be jealous if he knows that there’re more men (and women) now around Yuri. Uups, his rival just become moarrr. After all, we’ve got a tsundere girl and a chaebol guy now (not sure what kind of person Damon is). Anyway, thanks for the chapter desu~


    • Aria

      stalker tsundere


  19. Luna

    Yuri : “Kalian is no good~”

  25. astridtoaigis

  28. Eternal perspective

    Thanks for chap
    Lmao i wonder what surprised him.
    If is stammering when he speaks to her then her beauty or else mostly that face was similar to some portrait lady.


  29. InspiringEmotions
