Translating Korean Novels

And after a while, they ran into Kalian who had just climbed up the stairs.

“Ms. Yuri? Are you alright?”

Kalian recognized Yuri in Lakis’ arms and asked as he hurriedly walked over.

The thought that Kalian might have found her using her abilities if Lakis didn’t come in time flashed in Yuri’s mind and she frowned slightly.

“Don’t move. And don’t bother answering.”

When Yuri turned as Kalian approached and opened her mouth, Lakis spoke with a subdued voice much colder than before. Hearing that, Yuri furrowed her brows, somewhat dissatisfied. But she eventually kept quiet as Lakis asked.

And Kalian unconsciously stopped walking towards Yuri when he heard Lakis’ cold voice ringing in ear right after.

“Step aside; don’t block the way.”

Light blue eyes with a hue like that of a cold winter lake met Kalian’s gaze in the air.

“I’ll take her somewhere safe myself.”

Lakis began moving again and walked past Kalian while throwing him a sharp gaze.

“You’re the hero of the east, you should take care of the other injured inside.”

At that moment, Kalian felt a strange sense of déjà vu crawling up his spine. But before he could even figure out why that was, the man in front of him left with Yuri in his arms.

For a moment, the thought of holding them back sprang in his mind but somehow, there seemed to a strange atmosphere flowing between the two that made it difficult to intrude so he hesitated. And while he did, the two of them swiftly disappeared from his sight.

Kalian blankly stared the afterimage left behind before giving a chase then he soon heard the sound of people groaning and crying not too far away and abruptly came to his senses.

‘Come to think of it, he said there were other injured inside.’

With that, Kalian quickly moved towards where the sounds were coming from.

* * *

“Sh*t, why isn’t he coming out?”

Anne-Marie, Bastian and Damon were waiting for Kalian at the entrance to a crowded street. Damon was running out of patience and swore. The continuous explosions that hurt his ears had come to an end a little while ago.

Some time ago, the rescue party and law enforcement arrived to evacuate the people in the shopping distract and were actively moving towards where the sounds came from to find out the cause of the explosion.[1]

“N-Nothing happened, right?”

“They will be fine.”

Bastian and Anne-Marie were also on pins and needles as they gazed at the shopping district. Then Anne-Marie noticed familiar face in the distance.

“Ah, Ms. Yuri!”

“What? Where? Where did you see her?”

Bastian stretched his neck and looked around. But because he was presbyopic, his eyes were uncomfortable, and he couldn’t find Yuri right away.


Yuri heard the voice calling her as well. So she turned her head and saw Anne-Marie, Bastian and Damon who seemed to have evacuated safely.

Seeing how Anne-Marie looked like she was going to run over at any moment, Yuri spoke to Lakis.

“Mr. Lakis, let’s go that way.”

However, Lakis coldly glanced at where Anne-Marie was, then he ignored what Yuri said and actually went the other way instead. After exiting the building, Lakis continued to walk with Yuri in his arms while remaining so silent that it was frightening.

Fortunately, the explosions had stopped, and the rescue party had come over and began to move the injured people scattered around.

Maybe it was because there were a lot of people around, or maybe it was because he wanted to hide his identity from Yuri till the end, Lakis didn’t climb the roofs like usual, instead he walked on the ground like an ordinary person.

Then as she watched the scenery over Lakis’ shoulders, Yuri suddenly had a profound realization.

‘Ah, is it because all the roofs he can use have collapsed because of the explosion?’

Whichever it was, that was why he came out of the shopping distract in a normal way and they ran into Anne-Marie.

Yuri frowned at Lakis who blatantly ignored her intentions. Then she said to him.

“Mr. Lakis. Why do you keep ignoring me? I’m going to get angry.”

At that, Lakis momentarily flinched.
Following that, his cold eyes moved to Yuri. Lakis looked at Yuri with a gaze that seemed to have a lot of things to say.

“Let’s go over there, it’ll only take a minute. Like this, someone might think Mr. Lakis is kidnapping me or something.”

“I don’t want to. I couldn’t care less about someone else’s misunderstanding.”

Yuri repeated it but Lakis refused to listen to her till the end. Yuri was a little taken aback by his adamant voice. His side profile was still exuding with a cold aura.

In the end, he didn’t turn to head towards Anne-Marie but started going the other way. So Yuri eventually had to raise her voice to yell at Anne-Marie in the distance.

“Ms. Anne-Marie, I’m fine! I’ll see you later!”

She could see a dusty Damon Salvatore running over but naturally, he couldn’t keep up with Lakis’ speed.

“What the-! Where are you going!”

Eventually, Damon stopped running and panted for breath.

‘Who is that guy now?’

He felt suspicious. He thought Yuri was going to come out with Kalian Crawford, but she appeared with some man he was seeing for the first time. And judging from how she seemed to be following the man of her own will, it was almost certain that they knew each other.

“Thank goodness Ms. Yuri got out safely!”

“But the person she came out with seemed to be carrying her, she didn’t get hurt, did she?”

“She looked okay when I saw her…I’ll go to Ms. Yuri’s house later and check.”

“Right, you do that! Please let me know how she’s doing too. By the way, where is Kalian, that rascal? What is he doing?”

Anne-Marie and Bastian patted their chest in relief once they saw that Yuri seemed fine with no major injuries. And they also had the same questions as Damon. That maybe Kalian hadn’t crossed paths with Yuri.


And meanwhile, Kalian was still in the shopping district.

“Gasp, hello, Lord Crawford.”

People from the rescue party and law enforcement recognized Kalian and greeted him.

“There are injured in the right side as well.”

Kalian left after helping them to move the injured people in the building. Then his sharp gaze moved back to the building he just left from.

Unlike the other buildings, the number of casualties in this building was lesser. This was because a white, sturdy material was stopping the ceiling from collapsing.

For some reason, Kalian felt like he had seen it somewhere before. However, he couldn’t remember exactly where or when he had seen it. In the end, he narrowed his eyes and turned around to leave.

* * *

After a while, Yuri and Lakis arrived at home.


Yuri was forcefully placed down on the sofa. It was a little rough but despite the iciness in his expression and gaze, his movements were still gentle. Yuri looked up at Lakis.

“Mr. Lakis.”

And she asked him who still had a cold look on his face:

“Why are you so angry?”


At Yuri’s question, Lakis’ gaze which was glued to her face grew colder.

“Are you asking why?”

A faint laugh left his lips. Of course, it was a cold laugh; you couldn’t exactly call it delighted.

“Of course it’s because I was worried.”

And when Lakis spat out those words as if asking if she really didn’t know, Yuri went silent.

She stared at Lakis’ face without saying a word then her lips parted slightly, and she repeated his words as thought confirming.

“You were worried?”

Lakis narrowed his eyes and took a deep breath like he was trying to manage his emotions. After a few deep breaths, he regained his calm.
A moment later, Lakis lifted his hand and slowly stroked Yuri’s cheek.

“Even if you didn’t know before, I want you to know from now on.”

His voice was as gentle as his caress.

“If something happened to you because of other people.”

However, the next words from Lakis’ mouth were not gentle at all.

“All of those people will die by my hands.”*

The blue eyes gazing into hers glowed with an intense chill. Yuri realized he was truly telling her what he felt right now.

“Whether you wanted to save those people or protect them, I won’t take that into consideration.”

In a way, it was a frightening threat.

But she knew he meant that she should think of her own safety first instead of getting involved in a situation like the one earlier, where danger was unknown.

Which is why after hearing such a threat, she didn’t really feel it was scary or get squeamish.

‘Strange…it’s really strange.’

However, Yuri was feeling a little strange again.

“Also…don’t avoid me.”

And the feeling was amplified as she heard Lakis’ following words.

“If you don’t want to see me go crazy.”



Translator’s Corner:

[1] I translated this to law enforcement but I’m wondering if police might be better.

*I was starting to forget he had this side to him. Nice of the author to remind us.

    Just admit it, you are indeed like her so much, aren’t you?

    Thx for the chap, Ruby 😘


    • BookwormThatHatesTragics

      That’s the best version of his ‘I like you’ unless he gets more expressive later on


  2. Tessa

    Thanks for the translation ♡ I was waiting this novel anxiously


  3. L

    Go lakis ! tell her you like her cook more than any other food 👌🏻 The more I read the more I enjoy their relationship, and the harder for me to love kalian for somerason


  4. salma

    Thanks for the update!!!!! I want them to have quality time together. I’m a sucker for romance and smut and there’s barely been any in the past 80 chapters.


    • Miaka_Mei

      I “hate” to break it for you, but… this isn’t a smut novel……..


      • SleepIsForTheWeak

        *Le Gasp* What!? It isn’t a smut? Then why am I here for? I waited for nothing…….

        Oh well, let’s stay for the good romance


      • salma

        I mean it doesn’t necessarily need to be smut but just some romantic interactions.


      • Saphti

        I’ll just make smut scenes in my mind then… 😂🤭😏


  5. lamp

    soooo are they gonna address the fact that she used her powers in front of him again? is lakis gonna admit his feelings to her ?? will yuri actually buy a dog??? FIND OUT NEXT TIME ON DRAGON BALL Z.


    • Random Person

      This seem oddly familiar…
      Have you ever read Reborn: Evolving From Nothing? 😂😂😂


  6. airin_

    Lakis being desperate like this really makes something inside me squeeze lol does someone relates to me??

    Also i hope Yuri will actually explain and be honest about why she’s unconsciously(?) avoid Lakis, especially considering her personality, she could explain it like it was nothing.

    I just realized that the reason why their relationship is much healthier than the original novel, considering Lakis is actually the same inside, is prolly because of Yuri’s personality and tendencies. Aaah, i really love this couple

    Thank you Miss Ruby!💖


    • Mocha

      I think it’s the part of us that yearns for a lovey dovey super possessive man lol


      • Raimei

        Agree! 😆


  7. Matcha

    Ugh. The cuteness. I miss Lakis’s bug though. I love his commentary, it’s really relatable…
    When Lakis threatened(?) Yuri, I could almost hear the bug screaming that he was being dumb and unromantic. LOL


  8. Nora

    Lakis is now in yandere mode
    I be scared shitless
    Thanks for update 😍


    • Phour

      Yeah, this is where I relate to those novels where girls isekai’ed into a yandere novel and go “it’s romantic to read, not romantic to live!” Same applies here. So… umm…

      TL;DR. SQUEE!


      • BungeeFox

        She seems to find it hot tho…?
        I think that’s the ultimate combo, a yandere and a girl who just wants to be loved, who doesn’t care that much for people dying
        (Cuz I feel like she’s been through so much as an orphan and a test subject and she keeps feeling “strange” which I assume means she likes it)


  9. ConquerWithin

    Thank you for the chapter!

    That feeling, Yuri, is called….LURVE


  10. Dirus

    Are you know what time is? IT IS KISS TIME!!!

    Thanks for the chapter!


  11. Crystalss77

    Thank you~ I’m not even surprised that Lakis became a Yandere ʅ(◞‿◟)ʃ


    • lasagna123

      Hahaha..with everbody falling for Yuri. I think it just happened


  12. candy

    they are so cute omg🥺thank you miss ruby


  13. kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter!


  14. lasagna123

    Thankies for the chapter ❤️


  15. mizutsuki

    Thank u for your hard work ruby-sama


  16. Lei

    He’s turning yandere now???


  17. Batata Anisia

    Small yandere moments like that are just my cup of tea XD


  18. Adethorns

    Uuugh Lakis is finally revealing his piece of shit colours. I despise MLs who try to control the mc like that and isolate her from her friends. Its disgusting behaviour.


    • famine

      Even though he want to isolate, he wouldn’t dare. Yuri would hate him.
      He is specifically warning Yuri that he could go batshit crazy if she ever got hurt no matter what when or who, so he kinda beg Yuri to take care about herself more… Or else.


    • novelbear

      Agree! Controlling and threatening your partner = abuse

      Thanks for translating, Miss Ruby ʕ•ᴥ•ʔノ♡


  19. kryo

    Personally I dislike when the term “police” appears in historical-themed stories as their job/institution description. The term may origin from old terms, but in English, to describe said institution – it’s quite modern.
    Many times titles like city guards, constable, city patrol etc. would make the stories wording much better.
    Modern references feels out of place to me in there. In my opinion:
    law enforcement > police


  20. Francy21

    The Yandere level IS OVER 9000!


  21. Malacat

    Lakias: Goes full Yandere mode and threatens to kill everyone if she gets herself hurt.

    Yuri: Awww, that’s so sweet.

    Lakias is lucky he made it five more feet before passing out than he did in the novel. Yuri’s tastes run the opposite of Ann so he gets the ML spot while Kallian gets the villain spot.


  22. BrytteM

    Miss Ruby,
    I lack words to express how grateful I am for your translation of this novel. I, who am still learning languages, can only hope to do something akin to your labor here one day.

    Thank you! Thank you for granting me the marvel of reading this story!


  23. mysteriouslittlemouse

    Thank you for your hard work <3. Law enforcement or guards is better than police


  24. giginka

    Love the way this is leading to 🙂 thank you for lovely chapter


  25. Myuu7

    This is the kind of romance I don’t get depression with. Feels nice


  26. Feh

    “If something happened to you because of other people. All of those people will die by my hands.”
    *playing criminal of Britney now in my heart* wow Lakis is such a badboy and I love it


  27. Cincin

    I’m so confused since it’s been a while, but who’s Kalian again? I don’t know if I misred it, but is he that old man’s son/Selena’s father? I really need a recap on the characters lol


  28. Zion

    Somehow I really want a BF like Lakis he is only sweet to you, can cook, saves your life, cares about you and goes crazy as soon as someone hurts you but you have to coax him lots to calm him down.


  29. Zer0



  30. Jen_Ryzan

    AWWWW… Mr. Lakis, you are so sweet. You really like Yuri. A yandere at it finest. 10/10 for Lakis this chapter.

    Ruby-chan, thank you again for this superb translation.


  31. Seemanta

    The next chapter button is not there. Please fix this. I can’t access it.
