The golden lines, the unknown magic circle that has been worn down to the point where it is impossible to see the shape, the black and dilapidated cover has a large circle that looks like a magnifying glass in the center, and a bard applauding is drawn in the center.

This is the book’s cover, and the bard always has a strange smile on his lips, making people feel uncomfortable.

The book records many strange and inexplicable fables, fairy tales, and poets. On the title page of the cover, the handwriting has not been erased by time but has become bright red.


I saw a great black throne and the one sitting on it, and from before him, the heavens and the earth fled, and there was nowhere to be seen.

I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne.

As sin entered the world through one man and death through sin, death spread to all.


The epilogue on the title page made Sean frown. He never liked this kind of story, nor did he like this kind of reading. However, since this thing is placed in a restricted area, it is probably not a serious thing.

Sean turned to the page and immediately determined that in the illustration, the Crystal held in the hand of the bard is the Compulsive Crystal. Of course, the Crystal may not be the only one, but just looking at the weird illustration, Sean intuitively determined that what the bard held in his hand was the Crystal stored in his ring.

He read it quickly, and the more he looked at it, the more he frowned. Sean’s brows were already knit together when he finished reading it all.

Stephanie looked at him quietly until Sean looked away from the book and asked, “How is it?”

Sean nodded uncertainly, “It should be the Crystal I’m looking for, but the story itself is strange. No, very weird. Have you seen similar stories before?”

He handed over the book.

Stephanie took the book, looked at it briefly, and began to read it softly.

“Once upon a time, a brave and witty bard liked adventure and explored the unknown. One morning, he embarked on a journey to a faraway place.”

“He saw many different scenery along the way and many beautiful, ugly, unique, mediocre, weird, or dark creatures.”

“He learned a lot and achieved many things. People cheered his name loudly, and there was always a party to welcome him everywhere he went.”

“But the bard gave up all the good things in the world, and he went on to see more.”

“One day, the bard met a kind snake while passing through a forest.”

“‘Oh, isn’t this the famous bard? I’m so glad to see you. Where are you going?’ said the snake to the bard.”

“The bard told the snake that he was exploring more mysteries in this world and looked forward to finding treasures that no one had discovered before.”

“‘Oh, what are you going to do with the treasure?’ asked the snake curiously.”

“The bard smiled and shook his head. He just enjoys the process and the sense of accomplishment of obtaining the treasure. As for what to do with the treasure, he doesn’t care at all.”

“The snake believed the bard and told him to walk in that direction. ‘You will see a new world when you pass through the fog. At the end of the world, there is a big beautiful bird. Just pass through the other side, and you can get a rare gem in the world.'”

“The bard thanked the snake happily and walked toward the direction given.”

“‘You are welcome.’ said the snake.”

“When the bard walked away, the snake showed a smile. It turned out that it was the creature behind the fog wanted to take his soul away.”

“The fog is a trap. The snake does not believe that anyone can pass through it.”

“The bard walked in the direction pointed by the snake, through the land, the river, the valley, the plain, the cemetery, the forest…”

“One day, he stepped into a thick fog. He couldn’t see the direction clearly in the fog, but the bard didn’t hesitate at all. He walked in one direction and finally walked out of the fog.”

“Behind the fog is a beautiful world, with mountains, lakes, and forests.”

“The bard looked at this new world happily. He walked to a lake and washed his face. The fish and birds made a noise, and the bard smiled happily.”

“At this moment, a little bird jumped up on his shoulder, and the little bird said to him, ‘Welcome to the new world!'”

“It turns out that this is a world outside the world, and this little bird is the bard’s soul.”

“The bard laughed, ‘It is only a small sparrow?'”

“The sparrow said, ‘I can give you everything you want!'”

“In this way, the bard followed the sparrow on the road.”

“As the bard walked, he accidentally fell into a cave.”

“There are countless gold and silver treasures in the cave, and all kinds of dazzling lights have caught the bard’s eyes.”

“The sparrow jumped, ‘I can help you take all these treasures away! You will be the richest person in the world! Even the king has never seen this huge wealth!'”

“The bard shook his head, ‘I don’t need wealth; I have enough money.'”

“He walked out of the cave and continued to walk forward. He came to a beautiful field of flowers.”

“At this time, many beautiful women smiled and jumped around. Each of them is charming, more attractive than all the women the bard saw when he traveled the world.”

“The women sang beautiful songs and danced around the bard.”

“The sparrow said, ‘I can give these beautiful women to you! They will all fall in love with you passionately and with all their hearts! Even the king’s brides are not as good as yours!'”

“The bard shook his head with a smile again. He broke through the temptation and strode forward. ‘One woman is enough for me to fall in love with.'”

“He continued to walk forward. This time, he walked into a dark forest. There were no animals here, only big dark trees.”

“The bard walked for a long time in the forest. He found nothing to eat or drink, and he almost died of hunger and thirst.”

“Finally, he walked out of the dark forest and met a group of locals, and they invited him for dinner.”

“A bonfire has been set up in the distance, and the food emits a wonderful aroma. The bard is about to faint with happiness just after taking a sip.”

“The sparrow said, ‘The most delicious food in the world is right in front of your eyes! These locals are the best cooks, you can have a good meal every day, and I can give it to you! Even the king’s cooks are not like this!'”

“The bard shook his head. He walked to the side of the road, took a sip of water, and picked two green fruits. ‘As long as the food can fill my stomach, I’m good.'”

“He went on and on and encountered a tribe. Everyone here can use magic and is stronger than the enemy the bard has ever defeated.”

“Those people laughed at the bard and insulted him with all kinds of words. Even children threw feces at him and laughed.”

“The sparrow said, ‘Look at these arrogant people! Infuriating! I will tell you the secret of their power, and you will gain greater power. Go and kill them! Even all the king’s army combined is not as strong as them!”

“The bard flicked away the flies on his body and shook his head, ‘Their rudeness comes from ignorance, and they should not be killed just because of it.'”

“After that, he left.”

“After walking a long distance, the bard met a group of people again, but this time it was different. All the people were gentle and polite. They greeted the bard and shared what they had seen and heard.”

“This person likes to explore as much as you. They have countless experiences and bring treasures that people have never seen. Every time they go out to explore, they will go with their adventurous partners.”

“This time, the sparrow whispered in his ear, ‘Are you jealous? I can give you everything everything.”

“The bard laughed, ‘I am already satisfied with myself, why should I be jealous?'”

“His steps are getting firmer. His walking speed is getting faster.”

“But this time, the bard has been walking for a long, long, long time.”

“It was so long that he even forgot how long he had been walking. He only knew that he had never stayed.”

“Finally, the bard has reached his limit. His legs seem to be tied, his lungs seem to be flaming, and his sweat has soaked all his clothes.”

“The sparrow, who hadn’t spoken for so many years, suddenly spoke, ‘Why don’t we take a break?'”

“The bard replied, ‘Adventurers never stop.'”

“He dragged his exhausted body and finally came to a snow mountain. The bard’s eyes were bright. This is the place that the snake said.”

“Large snowflakes fell on him, but the bard did not stop.”

“‘Help me, help me!’ Suddenly, he heard a faint cry for help.”

“The bard walked over and looked and found a snake almost frozen to death lying in the snow. This is exactly the snake he saw before.”

“It turns out that the snake has been looking at the bard. It thought that he would listen to the sparrow’s bewitchment and fail so that he could take away his soul. But the bard was relentless.”

“The snake can’t sit still; the last test is ahead, then lay down. In order to make everything more real, the snake made itself almost die of freezing.”

“It believes that the bard will save itself. In this way, when his body warms up, he can directly bite the bard to death with his fangs. If he doesn’t save himself, then the bard will not pass the test, and his goal will be achieved!”

“What a flawless plan. The snake shivering in the snow.”

“‘Oh, the famous bard! I’m freezing to death, save me!'”

“The sparrow didn’t speak this time.”

“The bard lightly touched it with his foot, ‘You are about to freeze to death.'”

“‘Yes, please save me,’ pleaded the snake.”

“‘But I’m afraid you’ll kill me when I help you,’ said the bard.”

“‘No, how come? You are my savior.'”

“The bard thought for a while, took out a bag, ‘Well, I can put you in the bag, and to prevent you from biting me, I need to pull out your fangs.'”

“The snake hesitated, but it finally nodded.”

“The bard bagged the snake and pulled out its fangs.”

“The snake feels the warmth and secretly rejoices in its heart because he has not found its hidden fangs.”

“In this way, the bard climbed up the snow mountain and finally came to a big tree.”

“The closer he gets, the warmer the temperature becomes. When he walks in front of the big tree, the bard has already been bathed in the spring breeze; all the fatigue and hunger on his body have disappeared.”

“The big bird that the snake spoke before appeared. It was a robin.”

“The robin uttered a charming voice, kind, steadfast, and courageous bard. Now that you have seen me, and you are worthy of my treasure.'”

“The bard bowed, looked up, and asked, ‘O’ wise robin, may I come and see you before I get the treasure? Pardon my rudeness, but I am ashamed of it as I have the deepest longing.'”

“The robin graciously agreed to the bard’s request. She is always willing to draw a happy ending to a beautiful fairy tale.”

“The bard came to the robin and praised him.”

“The robin closed its eyes happily.'”

“And then, it suddenly felt a tingling pain.”

“The bard pierced the robin’s chest with a fang. The blood was flowing, and the robin was struggling helplessly.”

“The robin died, and the bard laughed happily.”

“He took out the bag containing the snake, ‘I’m warmed up, thank you for letting me out.”

“The bard, with robin’s blood on his face, a rock at the bag with all his might.”

“The snake also died, and the bard laughed happily.”

“I’m such a genius!”
