Jinde raised his brows and turned to look at his husband. Leng Jin Yu could only sigh.
“It’s some kind of warning these things give off if they are forcibly opened.”
“Whoops. You should have said so sooner.” Jinde laughed and then grabbed Leng Jin Yu’s arm, pulling him out of the store and down the street. “I guess we’ll have to run then. Ah, who would have thought I’d ever be a fugitive in my life? It’s really such a steep fall if you consider I was a king once.”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. “You do realize that these humans won’t be able to see us as long as we use our spiritual energy, right? So there’s no need to —” Continue reading
For a while, Leng Jin Yu conscientiously read an assortment of history books and compendiums about all kinds of subjects like the inventions, geography, and animal kingdom of this world, taking note of all the differences there were between this world and the one they came from. The people that came and went had already all left the place, the doors not opening again for a long time. Even the lights had been dimmed so that Leng Jin Yu had to take out a starlight shell from his spatial ring and put it down next to them so they could continue to read.
Just when he was pondering the political systems that seemed to exist in different forms in different countries of this world, bright laughter interrupted him. Continue reading
The two of them strolled down the street, observing the people around them and taking note of the streets and buildings.
When Leng Jin Yu watched the way that one of the doors next to them seemed to open on its own, he caught Jinde moving his hand to toss back his hair. His claws were clearly showing, making Leng Jin Yu raise his brows. “What are you doing?”
Jinde narrowed his eyes and shook his head to make his hair fall to the front again just to toss it back once more. “I’m not sure what it is. But I’ve seen them do it a lot.” He nodded over at a young couple. The woman was hanging onto the man’s arm, jabbering about something while she constantly flipped her hair back in the way that Jinde had done just now. The most noticeable was probably that she didn’t have normal nails but something that looked like claws instead. Continue reading
The two of them slowly left the alley where they had arrived and stepped onto the broader path in front of it that was made of big stone slabs. They watched the humans walk past them and their expressions turned grave.
“I’m not sure we’ll be able to fit in here.” Jinde furrowed his golden brows and tried to figure out just what the usual appearance of these people was supposed to be. In the end, he wasn’t too sure.
Some of them had very short hair that barely came up to the length of a finger’s width while others still wore their hair down to their hips. Their closing was just as puzzling: Some of it bore a slight resemblance to the robes they were used to while others were only wearing a pair of pants and a short garment on the upper bodies, making it seem as if they were walking around in their underwear.

It’s finally time for the new Oh. My. Fate?! Special that I announced a few days ago: A Different Sky! I hope you’ll like it 😉
Jinde glanced at his husband and his lips curved into a charming smile. “So? Which one do you think we should choose, my dear?”
Leng Jin Yu’s lips twitched. Looking at the star map in front of him, he could barely remember why he had agreed to visit one of the lower realms to ‘have fun’ as Jinde had put it. Most likely, somebody had fluttered their beautiful eyelashes at him and pretended to be pitiful for having to stay in this human realm all the time?
Leng Jin Yu sighed. “There are three thousand lower realms. I’ve hardly been to a handful. How do you want me to choose?” Continue reading
Hey, guys! It’s time for yet another announcement: Today is “Thank you, patrons” day so I’ll be starting a special over on my Patreon page: A Different Sky!
But don’t worry if you’re not my patron (yet 😜). The special will go public for everyone on November 22nd since that’s when Inksgiving starts over on Tapas 😉
Anyway, here’s what the Special will be about:
Sweet-talking his husband to go on a vacation in one of the lower realms, Jinde is quite happy with his unexpected gains. Look at the strange way they dress, doesn’t it look great on him? What about their ways of courting? Jin Yu, don’t you think you should spoil your lover a bit?
