C128 – The Ending (VIII)

Ever since Southern Star received the news from Meng Jinhuai’s mecha, the overall panic in the Ye Tian Empire could be considered to have diminished a little. Against this backdrop, the Ministry of the Army didn’t announce to the public that Duan Hengye had been injured and was unconscious. After Meng Jinhuai landed on the starship in his mecha, the official account of the military department simply notified the public. Because the public was very agitated at the moment, although the Ministry’s notification was short and vaguely worded, no one had any doubts for the time being.


At this moment, only those who were on the starship knew how critical the situation was. Although Yu Xinran had made some preparations when she arrived, and she had brought over the doctor on the large starship, the medical equipment on the starship wasn’t enough. After briefly examining Duan Hengye’s injuries, the doctor who had followed her all the way from the resident starship made the recommendation to immediately send Duan Hengye to Southern Star.

Not back to the resident starship, but back to Southern Star.

Although the doctor didn’t explicitly say so, the medical equipment on the military department’s starship was very complete, and even Yu Xinran’s serious injury not long ago was able to be cured. But the current Duan Hengye even received a suggestion to return to Southern Star. And so just after a simple treatment, Meng Jinhuai, who had just stepped out of the middle of the stellar expl*osion, didn’t rest for a moment. Just as the Ye Tian Empire continued to celebrate Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai’s escape, a huge mecha once again took off from the starship, heading towards Southern Star.


At this time on Earth, the sun had completely set. Before Duan Hengye’s father left, he didn’t have time to turn off the floor lamp by his side, and it seemed that all the staff at home were on vacation these days, so after the man left, no one came up to clean up the coffee cups on the table. Duan Hengye slowly picked up his cell phone and sat down on the sofa.

Although he was engaged in a relatively special job and was born in a mysterious ancient martial arts family, in life, Duan Hengye had always positioned himself as ‘an ordinary otaku’. When he first opened the book “Dumping Interstellar”, Duan Hengye never thought that his future life would be tightly bound to it.


Now that more than two years had passed, seeing the familiar cover of this book once again, Duan Hengye couldn’t help but feel mixed emotions. After all, he hadn’t touched his cell phone for such a long time, and after taking it into his hands again, Duan Hengye’s operation was slightly rusty. For example, he didn’t directly tap into the most recently updated chapter like before, but instead tapped into the book’s introduction page.


During these two years, Duan Hengye would go back and forth to mentally review the contents of Dumping Interstellar whenever he had time. But regarding the article’s introduction, he no longer had much of an impression. Now, after seeing this interface, besides being unfamiliar, Duan Hengye was more puzzled because Duan Hengye saw that in the list of the book’s main supporting characters, the three words “Duan Hengye” were especially conspicuous.

The finger that was about to click on the list of chapters paused for a moment, and Duan Hengye cast his gaze onto the list of main supporting characters.


“Supporting characters: Meng Jinhuai, Duan Hengye ……”


No, he wasn’t a supporting character! Although a long time had passed, Duan Hengye’s memory has always been very good, he remembered that Duan Hengye was only an inconspicuous cannon fodder character in the original story, although his ability to advance the plot was very strong, but according to his role and the chapters he appeared in, he could only be considered as an “important cannon fodder”.

Duan Hengye remembered that he also found the cannon fodder with the same name as him after opening the novel. He had never seen this name on the list of main supporting role before.

So what was going on? Could it be that the author edited the novel and rewrote the list of supporting characters?

Duan Hengye had planned to start reading the later chapters directly, but after discovering this bizarre change in the introduction, he slowly slid the screen and looked toward the comment section below. Because the book was still being serialized and because the number of new readers was relatively high, the latest comments in the comment section were all from different chapters. With just a glance, he saw that his name appeared in several of the comments.

“WOOO Professor Duan in this chapter is so valiant!”

“Hahahahaha~ I didn’t think I’d be interested in this book’s BL sub CP~”


“…… He hesitated for a moment before he said, ‘Nan Wei’. So awesome! Duan Hengye is so strong.”


Seeing these comments, Duan Hengye was completely confused. “Duan Hengye” was a big villain and cannon fodder in the novel. Although there had been occasional people in the comments section lamenting how such a smart person was an undercover agent for the royal family, he had never been praised in such a large scale. Of course, the most important point was – in the original story, there was no mecha “Nan Wei”.


The huge wall clock in front of Duan Hengye reminded him that it was already ten o’clock in the evening. Although Duan Hengye was a wandering soul, after seeing the reminder on the wall clock and the review of “Dumping Interstellar”, Duan Hengye couldn’t help but feel a chill in the bottom of his heart. What in the world was going on here? Why was Mecha Nan Wei, which didn’t exist at all in the original story, brought up in the comment section, and why did he, the cannon fodder and villain, have positive comments?


For a time, all sorts of doubts all surged into Duan Hengye’s mind, and he actually somewhat dared not click on the specific chapter. Right now, Duan Hengye didn’t know how long he would stay on Earth, and although there was some fear in his heart, he ended up grasping the time to click on a specific chapter. Duan Hengye originally intended to directly read the content that he hadn’t read yet, but after seeing the anomalies in the synopsis and the comment section, he finally decided to once again start from the first chapter.

Although Dumping Interstellar was still being serialized, it wasn’t short in length. Even though Duan Hengye skipped over many plots that had nothing to do with himself, Meng Jinhuai, or interstellar current events, by the time he finished reading the plots that had been serialized up to this point, a whole night had already passed.

Duan Hengye’s cell phone was good, but after a whole night had passed, there was only a little over ten percent of the battery left. Although he was an otaku who liked to read netizens, this was the first time that Duan Hengye had seen his cell phone get hot and the sky turn white.

He was considered a “wandering soul”, but after a night on the sofa, Duan Hengye’s neck already hurt. Seeing the alert that there were no new chapters at the moment, Duan Hengye slowly put down his cell phone, and then cast his eyes toward the window. If it was said that before reading the novel, Duan Hengye’s mood was complicated, now hidden under the calm exterior, he was already in a state of confusion.

Duan Hengye had never imagined that things would actually develop in such a way.

Along with the list of main and supporting characters that were different from what he remembered, the plot of the book also underwent changes that were unexpected to Duan Hengye.

Although he had just seen that ‘Duan Hengye’ had become the second name on the list of supporting characters, but he was still a supporting character after all, Duan Hengye needed a lot of effort to be able to outline his own life from the book’s description. When he finished this work he realized – the plot of this book was already completely different from what he remembered, but …… it matched the two years of his life.

The same attack on Tize Star, the same birth of a new mecha, the same knowledge of piloting a mecha…

If there was one thing, it may be a mistake or coincidence made by Duan Hengye, but when these things were all presented from the perspective of the female lead Shang Mengzhen, Duan Hengye could no longer deceive himself. This wasn’t just a coincidence.


…… At the same time that Duan Hengye changed the plot of the original book world, the plot of “Dumping Interstellar” on Earth also changed. Although he had already experienced “death”, “rebirth”, and “entering a book”, which were events that ordinary people could never imagine, it didn’t mean that Duan Hengye was able to accept this fact with ease.

Duan Hengye’s cell phone lit up with a low-battery alert, and after seeing it, he picked up his cell phone again, and then planned to temporarily exit the novel app. However, at this time, Duan Hengye saw that “Dumping Interstellar” once again appeared with an update prompt. This book was, after all, a female-led book that had a female protagonist, and it was a book that had a female-led protagonist. This book was, after all, a showbiz novel from the female lead’s perspective, and it didn’t have a lot of information on the interstellar world. Duan Hengye had just seen that the plot was currently serialized right up to the start of the war, but because the female lead di*dn’t have much to do with the w*ar, the book had only briefly mentioned it.

After seeing the prompt, Duan Hengye once again opened the APP. With just a glance, he extracted an unbelievable keyword from it – Stellar Expl*osion!

Although it was a showbiz novel, the female lead was, after all, related to the Southern Stars, and the impact of this w*ar was extremely significant. In the recently updated chapters, the author mentioned quite a few things about the w*ar.

… The heroine had been busy shooting a movie recently, and because she was rushing the schedule, she fell sleep subconsciously. But this time, when Shang Mengzhen’s assistant told her about the stellar eruption, Shang Mengzhen, who was worried about Duan Hengye and Meng Jinhuai’s safety and well-being, still had to turn on her light device to check the news every few moments, and ‘an ominous premonition rose in her heart’.


Although this was a stellar expl*osion that lasted for an extremely long time, from the heroine’s perspective, it was just a major event that happened in a short period of time. After the scene was finished, Shang Mengzhen didn’t even have time to remove her makeup, but her assistant who knew she had been paying attention to the battle came over and told her about the signal sent back by “Nan Wei”.


But … after hearing this news, the strange and ominous feeling in the bottom of Shang Mengzhen’s heart didn’t disappear.

After reading this chapter of the plot, Duan Hengye once again put the cell phone back on the table. It had to be said that Shang Mengzhen’s feelings were not wrong, as could be seen from the fact that he had returned to Earth in the state of a wandering soul, this matter was indeed strange.
