Trash of the Count’s Family – Chapter 665: I guess I do have to step in? (7)

Cale questioned it, but had no choice other than to ask the conclusion he came to in his mind.

“…I pass because of my looks?”

– My goodness!

The voice that sounded like a person in their mid to late teens shouted as if she didn’t know what to do.

– So cute! Look at how grumpy you look while asking if you pass because of your looks! You’re such a little cutie!

“…My goodness.”

Cale’s ‘my goodness’ as he sighed was for a very different reason than the Drew Thames of her teens. He heard the voices of the Super Rock and the other ancient powers in his mind.

– …Ho. I’ve never seen someone like this.

– She has a sharp eye.

– How amazing. She’s amazing in many ways. The first thing she noticed while looking at Cale Henituse was his face? Hohoho.

This was the first time that Cale had ever been told he was cute, whether in this world or during his life as Kim Rok Soo. He had never been called cute in his thirty-plus, almost forty years.

“Ha, haha-”

Cale couldn’t help but laugh in disbelief.

Someone came back to their senses after hearing him laugh.

Ron Molan. Ron had only been anxious about this sudden situation for a moment before walking over to Raon with a stiff expression on his face.

“Raon-nim.”

“Hmm? Good to see you again Grandpa Ron!”

Ron couldn’t put on his usual benign smile even at Raon’s bright greeting.

“Raon-nim, how did a tree end up growing here?”

The grave of Cale Henituse’s biological mother…

Ron had been thinking about a lot of things just from the fact that Cale came here. But a giant tree bursting through the grave and growing like this? The tree was beautiful, but Ron couldn’t get rid of the stiff expression on his face.

“Ha, haha-”

It was because Cale Henituse, the child of the owner of this grave that was now gone because of the tree, was laughing so emptily while being surrounded by these beautiful red leaves.

The laugh seemed somewhat full of disbelief but also as if there was nothing behind it. Ron slowly looked around.

Raon, Lily, and Hong were just watching the tree and Cale as if they were amazed. But everybody On and older were only shocked for a moment before they all looked at Cale with complicated expressions on their faces.

“Hmm?”

Ron’s gaze then landed on a punk.

“Mm, mmph! Mmph!”

This bastard’s face had turned into a mess after being pummeled by the buzz-cut Dragon Rasheel. Lion King Dorph’s eyes were wide open as he flailed while looking at the red tree. His face looked both astonished and shocked.

“Why is this son of a bitch whining like this without considering the situation?”

Rasheel raised his palm as if to say Dorph was being annoying.

Pow!

“Ugh!”

Rasheel smacked Dorph’s back extremely hard and Dorph’s head lowered while shaking intensely. Rasheel snorted before smirking.

“This is my first time seeing someone gain an ancient power. Truly fitting for a human this mighty Dragon has appro-, no, that’s not right. Hey! Is this okay?!”

Rasheel’s eyes opened wide.

“Is it okay for Cale Henituse to gain another ancient power? Is his plate okay?! Won’t it break again?”

Ron still looked calm, while some of the others stiffened up while hearing that.

“…What do you mean by… his plate breaking again?”

Basen quietly asked while Rasheel nonchalantly commented as if he couldn’t believe Basen didn’t even know that.

“Cale Henituse’s plate is wide but is pretty much completely full already. His plate will probably break into pieces if he takes in one more ancient power.”

“W, what would happen if it breaks?”

Lily quickly barged in. Rasheel was annoyed at these little pests but held back his anger and responded bluntly.

“What else? He’ll die if his plate breaks. I heard he’s been through this many times already? This time is probably really dangerous.”

“…Rasheel-nim.”

Ron tried to stop him, but Rasheel had already said it and Lily and Basen turned completely pale. Rasheel didn’t care as he looked toward the bottom of the hill.

“Who is that?”

“…She is the Duchess of the territory.”

Ron answered Rasheel’s question while looking at the pale expression on Duchess Violan’s face. She had just gotten here.

The Violan Ron knew would not have come here while Cale was here. However, she probably came over because she was worried after seeing this bright red tree and hearing Cale’s scream.

She had run over on her own. A lot of people probably wanted to come with her, but she probably came alone because she was worried that she might bother Cale who had wanted to go to his biological mother’s grave quietly.

And after rushing over on her own, the first thing she heard was what Rasheel had just said.

‘Tsk.’

Ron clicked his tongue internally before bowing toward Violan. Duchess Violan stopped walking and disappeared behind a tree without getting any closer.

He heard Lily’s shaking voice at that moment.

“S, shouldn’t we stop him?”

“Who knows?”

Rasheel was standing there with an odd expression on his face as if he had not been the one to ask if Cale was okay a few moments ago.

“I’m sure Cale Henituse knows the condition of his body. We should just wait for now since he chose to do this.”

The great and mighty Rasheel was concerned about Cale, a rare person he could easily converse with, but he did not have the authority to stop him.

But Lily and Basen were different. Basen subconsciously walked toward the red tree.

“That is not acceptable. He cannot keep doing this. Hyung-nim should not do this if it can be dangerous for him-”

“What if it is something he needs to do?”

“…Excuse me?”

He stopped and turned around after hearing a voice.

The pink curly-haired Dodori was standing there with his arms crossed.

“Cale Henituse most likely knows that this may be taxing on his body. He made this decision despite knowing what it could do. He most likely believes that this is the only way for us to be victorious.”

Basen’s mouth slowly opened as he let out a quiet sigh.

“I will respect Cale Henituse’s decision.”

Dodori then closed his eyes.

Hero.

That was not a title that was given at a person’s birth.

The path that the person has taken… The numerous decisions the person has made… The many things the person has done… All of those things combined together and the results they created were what made people give someone the title of ‘hero.’

That was how a hero was born.

“If you cannot understand the weight he is carrying on his shoulders, you should at least respect his decisions.”

As the eyes of the young pink Dragon Dodori reflected what he had just said…

“Our human will be fine.”

He heard Raon’s confused voice. Rasheel, Dodori, and the siblings turned toward Hong and Raon, who looked confused, and On who was shaking her head.

‘Hmm?’

The moment Dodori felt that this was odd…

“…!”

Dodori, Rasheel, and Raon turned toward the red tree.

“What the……?!”

Rasheel subconsciously rubbed his arm that had goosebumps.

Boom!

It made Lion King Dorph’s face slam to the ground, but Rasheel didn’t care. Rasheel pressed down on the fallen Dorph with one foot while wetting his lips with his tongue.

‘Something is getting twisted.’

Dragon.

An odd twist of something that even a great Dragon like himself could not detect was silently happening around them.

it was happening at the center of these sparkling red leaves. It was happening where Cale Henituse was located.

‘What is it? What is being twisted?’

Rasheel could tell that something was happening, but could not tell what it was. It was the same for Dodori.

But they did not step in.

‘…It is just a small amount of power.’

‘It is weak.’

They didn’t know what it was, but the twist and the strength of the power were weak.

Rasheel and Dodori chose to watch for now.

But one being… the black Dragon that was clenching his front paws so tightly that they were getting sweaty… The young Dragon’s instincts told him what was moving right now.

‘Time……!’

Something that was not visible in the sky or the ground… Something that had less presence than the air but definitely continued to flow and absolutely abided by the laws of nature…

Raon could feel this existence of ‘time’ twisting with the red tree at its center.

‘No! This is not time!’

Raon had a feeling that this great existence was not just time.

Something even greater than time was hiding inside this twist.

It was something that could be impacted even less than time.

A single word popped into Raon’s mind. Raon could somewhat make out the true nature of this twist that nobody, not even the other Dragons that were here, were able to decipher.

He could not make it out completely because he was still young and inexperienced, but the word seemed to embed itself in his mind.

‘…Fate……!’

The power heading toward Cale Henituse right now was fate.

It was extremely small and weak, but Raon thought that it was a more dangerous power than anything else.

‘It’ll be dangerous if that power reaches the human……!’

Boom. Boom.

Raon’s heart started beating wildly. Something that existed inside him started to squirm. It was like the smallest of embers that landed on a handful of dry leaves. A small amount of power similar to the ember that was so small but had the power to completely swallow those dry leaves in flame was squirming inside Raon.

Raon had not noticed it because he was too busy thinking about how Cale could be in danger.

Boom. Booboom.

That power slowly started to aim for that small amount of ‘fate’ on the red tree without Raon noticing.

It seemed to be the only power that could get rid of this omnipotent force.

This was the only moment to break the restrictions of fate given to a life form… The ‘present’ was the only time to do it.

Paaaaat-!

A red light covered Rasheel, Dodori, and everyone’s eyes.

There was a gentle breeze as everything looked to be covered in blood.

The blood-red light seemed to be swept up by the breeze, and they could see Cale Henituse floating up to the top of this red tree.

“Ah.”

Raon gasped while seeing the smirk on Cale’s face.

The small amount of power that had been rising up without Raon’s knowledge sunk back deep inside Raon’s body.

“Human!”

Raon subconsciously called out to Cale.

The blood-red lights headed toward Cale at that moment.

The red light tried to crash into Cale like an angry wave or a tsunami.

“That’s odd.”

But Cale was focused on something else.

‘It’s warm.’

Although the red light looked extremely destructive, Cale could feel a type of warmth he had never felt before.

Swoooooooosh-

Cale pulled back the whirlwinds that had been surrounding him and moved toward the red wave, the wood attribute ancient power, ‘annual rings of life.’

“No-!”

“Shit!”

Cale could not really hear the shouts of people underneath the tree.

He just closed his eyes and focused. He then called forth an ability that existed inside him.

At that moment…

– …Hey cutie, you are my kin?

Drew Thames sounded confused before she continued in a slightly happy tone.

– I just need to go in here, right?

Cale opened his eyes at that moment.

There was a diary in his hand.

It was the item that Drew Thames had left behind.

This diary…

Cale’s Embrace ability was used on the diary.

“Yes, ma’am. Please go in here.”

Cale severely lacked the plate space to absorb any more ancient powers.

That was why he used Embrace to put his new power into this diary.

– That’s a relief. I let you pass because you look so cute, but you need to be a part of the Thames household to use this power properly.

This ordinary brown diary… The red light slammed down into it and Cale closed his eyes for a moment because it was so bright before opening them back.

It was just a short moment, but he could feel the power going into the diary.

“It changed.”

Once he opened his eyes, he could see that the diary was gently surrounded by the red leaves and had turned red. He could not hear Drew Thames’s voice anymore.

Cale touched the pages of the diary with an odd gaze in his eyes.

Now there were multiple powers he used Embrace on, including the earth attribute ancient power from before.

‘There’s also the black World Tree.’

It wouldn’t be bad to discuss the future of the fake World Tree he ‘Embraced’ at the underground labyrinth of the Molden Palace when he went to see the World Tree after this.

Cale organized his thoughts in his mind.

“Mm!”

Cale suddenly flinched and his eyes opened wide.

Chhhhhhhhhhh—

The diary left his hand and flipped pages on its own.

It opened to an empty page and red words started to appear.

< …Are the contents of this diary true? >

Cale could tell that Drew Thames he had just ‘Embraced’ was the one writing in here.

“Yes, ma’am. They are true.”

Nothing appeared in the diary for a moment.

Cale quietly looked at the diary and the diary must have felt his gaze as more words appeared, albeit in a much smaller font as if she was mumbling.

< …I guess I really did end up on my own. >

He could not understand what she meant, however, the handwriting looked weak and full of sorrow.

Based on what Cale knew, the Thames family had perished and Drew Thames had been the only one of the Thames bloodline by the time Deruth met her at the academy. He hesitated for a moment before opening his mouth.

He was going to ask about the Thames family, the issue that he had tried not to pay any attention to at all.

< Hey, cutie. >

But Drew Thames started writing again before Cale could say anything.

< …I’m relieved that you are a soul who ended up here because of a transmigrator. >

She then wrote something else.

< You would have been hunted the moment someone found out if you were a single-lifer. >

Cale’s expression stiffened up.

“Human, is it done now?”

Raon fluttered his wings and flew up next to Cale. However, Cale could not answer that question as he could only stare at the diary.

There was someone Cale believed to be a single-lifer.

It was Choi Han.

* * *

“Choi Han.”

“Yes, your highness.”

Tap. Tap.

Alberu was tapping on the long circular table in the meeting room of the Puzzle City City Hall.

“Should we do it?”

“What are you talking about, your highness?”

Choi Han and Alberu looked into each other’s eyes.

The corners of Alberu’s lips twisted up.

“Pretending to be dead.”

“…Excuse me?”

Choi Han’s expression became visibly distraught but Alberu was smiling brightly.

“First was Cale Henituse.”

He was currently said to be between life and death.

“Second was the majestic gold Dragon, Eruhaben-nim.”

Alberu then pointed at Choi Han and himself.

“Third is me. And fourth will be my instructor-nim.”

Alberu brightly continued after seeing Choi Han’s expression turn odd.

“Choi Han, do you want to try dying once?”

      Who knows. As a reader, that’s the first thing we’d think of. But the author has a tendency of completely misleading us. Tho tbh i hate n like that theory. I like it coz og Cale n our Cale are real family. I hate it coz they lost the chance to be family coz of WS bs. Plus that would mean the WS curse killed Cale’s intended parents. Like I’d feel even worse for our Cale.

      Drew Thames is Clae’s biological mother, while Violan is his step-mother (Basen and Liliy’s biological mother).

      The soul in Cale’s body (KRS) right now was supposed to be born in the WS’s body and not in Korea, but the WS reincarnated so KRS got kick out of the body and ended up in Korea.

      When Choi Jung died and refused to be transmigrated the God of death decided to bring KRS to the novel and that’s why He ended up in Cale’s body.

      FYI: That’s from my understanding tho.

      After the last chapter, i keep being bothered on how cale might hearing his young version mother’s voice like he hearing other ancient power. It might keep him on the line little bit and base on her personality, it must be interesting on how she will gossiping with other ancient power regarding Cale. Our Roan is growing well and yes Choi Han.. Pretanding to be death is probably the basic you need to hone your acting skill.

    I can’t even think of comprehensible words right now… wait, this is too shocking wtf. First of all, there really is something up and something fishy with the Thames history. Like fvck? someones targeting single-lifers, there is someone else more dangerous than the white bastard and I JUST WISH that that other bastard don’t know how to kill a single-lifer because imma fucking riot (╬▔皿▔)╯ugh… please just let Cale be a slacker in the future and that no one will really die…

    Alberu be thinking of ‘pretend’ death with Choi Han not thinking that they’d be giving everyone heart attacks if they really pretended to die without informing anyone. Lmao Alberu AHAAHHAHAHA

      and, is no one gonna talk about RAON’S ATTRIBUTE????!!! I think this is the first time it ever got mention after he acquired it. I mean, he did use it unconsciously but it doesn’t change the fact that it can even affect fate— and that’s seriously mindblowing. This foreshadowing tho… I am guessing that there will be something happening in the future that involves fate again— something really big is gonna be happening…

          Erm, Like Cale said before, the power related time is not easy to handle, It not awaken yet becoz Raon still baby. He need something socking to the point, no one can handle, and use that atribute. So I think that Raon attach too much to Cale 1) He save him, 2) They share same fate and power.

        Well, I kinda read ‘The last goodbye’ *sob*, and got some spoilers so I am guessing what it is used to but someone trying to kill singer lifers is maybe because they can become gods? Or maybe the Thames family found outs something shocking again.. Their families is like Albert Einstein in a crowd of kids, lol

    i think they were not blood related, because
    1. the fact that drew said that you need to be thanes for using the power
    2. how drew know about his son whose gonna have his time warp in the future
    3. and when the og!cale being killed by the white star, the white star didn’t notice that og!cale time is warped ( its mean drew can saw both the future and the past, while white star only saw the past )

    so the white star can only use half of the ancient power capability, and so there were no proof (yet) that they were blood related

    Reply
    1. el

      1. Both Cale and White Star can use that power because they **are** Thames. We don’t know if White Star’s soul was a Thames and if he wasn’t but somehow was able to use that power, then it means his current body is a Thames, despite the White Star not being one. This one is very important.

      2. ???? You mean to say that Drew never met his nephew (if we assume she has) so she didn’t know that White Star was a reincarnator.

      3. Yes. It’s already been explained before, White Star only acquired half of the power (the past) in both the original and current timeline. He couldn’t have known about OG! Cale’s time.

      Yeh, I gave the same idea too. The fact that Cale can use Thame ancient power perfectly becoz he from the same house hold. Just he will be bz after this to dig the story of his household.. 5 years? You wish Cale. It not going as you wish. And.. about the cithamany, which can be like vedeo device and don’t no how it become in the future.. Since Cale have ancient power related to time, and possess the power to stop time, ermm.. Maybe he can open the door to link to others world? Who knows?

    I have felt multiple times during this story that I am just not smart enough to read it. Whew, they just don’t make college degrees like they use to. I just have no idea what to think anymore. The more I read the less I understand. At first I thought the Thames might have been from one of the collected strong families that Nelan put together but no time there doesn’t add up, but I did think that maybe KRS should have originally belonged to that world and in essence the death god allowed his switch back because of og Cale and his decision. I don’t know…I think the author just shows what we need to know on a need to know basis.

    I still think it was a really bad idea for Dorph to be brought to a party of the other side while being aware. I’m surprised Ron allowed that. I’m really not warming up to the new dragons at all. I would not be happy if someone said all that to me if it’s about my brother just because said dragon is on a kick about heroes and legends like a certain snake.

    After this chapter having something else about it, I have decided me and my thoughts on On are very conflicted. I almost see that the author sees On as this brilliant sage of all knowing wisdom which I find very weird and wholly unrealistic unless I take it being a fantasy novel and the fact the cat tribe matures them. Meh…who says everything has to make sense I guess.

    I really hope Choi Han remains ok, I vote for pretending he is dead and packing him away somewhere, preferably after someone kills Dorph.

      Is it out of the realm of possibility to have krs supposed to be Cale Henituse’s uncle? But then the soul was kicked to the curb…aka earth. But, was again kicked back when his maybe nephew wanted his body. So he would be more or less a transitional soul and now essentially he is his own would have been nephew. Or do I need to read something else to stop with the theories?

    If they really are related than I wonder if there is a connection between Thames family researching time and fate, and KRS’s original powers being time related (both “flash” and advanced record aka “prophecy”)

    I remember that first dragon slayer writing something about “nature(world?) trying to kill him” and also how characters said “he’s like a nature himself” about Cale and how “nature(world?) accepted Raon” (who did not die according to his original fate). So maybe Thames family are acting like a nature laws in this world and are like hunters who are supposed to hunt down those who go against world laws/fate? I wonder.

    This chapter is awesome. It’s so fun seeing Cale being embarrassed as he was told to be cute for the first time.

    I also like that Rasheel actually concerns about Cale but also respects him.

    The part about Alberu suggest Choi Han to try pretending to be dead is so funny. I mean, Choi Han’s acting …

    It’s so cool how the Henituse family members now know about Raon and also know On and Hong are not just regular cats. I hope to see the children interacting with the family in the future.

    Okay, from my understanding from all of these comments, White Star’s soul has reincarnated into the body of a Thames family member which was suppose to be KRS’s. This would mean, that Drew’s sibling, cousin, the like, gave birth to him, making that if things went as planned, OG!Cale and New!KRS would be related. However, WS kicked KRS’s soul out and once he was old enough, he killed the rest of the family in order to keep the time knowledge to himself. So this explains that WS and Cale are related, explaining why they look so alike and why WS is able to use the ancient power.

    My only question is how the Thames didn’t know about WS possession? Shouldn’t they have seen that his time was warped? Unless they did know and WS convinced them he wasn’t a threat or he cared about them which activated his curse. WS likely knew Drew and was able to find her ancient power since she told the Thames about it. Cale was the only family member spared as they hadn’t met yet and/or WS just didn’t want to waste time killing an extra family member that likely wasn’t a threat.

    I’m so excited about this chapter!
    Raon finally getting a first feel for his attribute. Time in relation to changing fate.. so hm maybe “time” to read a future fate and then “present” as the only point in time to change it. I need more info, but I guess we will have to wait a while for the next trigger. (or not, based on Cale’s history so far….)

    My understanding is, as well as lots of commenters here, that the white thing got “reborn” into the Thames family, the curse wiped out all but Drew, bc she was… away at college or something and not around for his birth/growth. KRS soul got kicked to the other earth. I also like the theory someone mentioned that this connection is the reason his powers awakened like this (storing knowledge like tree rings to record, the flash forward and instant move stuff…).
    Makes KRS and Cale soul cousins and explains the hair and face similarities between both of them and the white thug.
    A dangerous theory, too, because that means the white bastard might have had access to some of the research of that family, if he bothered to look. There ought to be a reason he knew about Drew and her ancient powers, but left the other two in the forest alone. He might just have chased after her, which could explain her urgency to split and store her powers even though she knew it would kill her. Ahhh, the possibilities!! *dreamy look*

    Single Lifers being hunted.. interesting. by humans? to get their powers? to become a god themselves? or by other gods/demons who don’t want the competition? Or is it related to the last single lifer being that first Dragon Slayer and his weird Barrow name instead of anything korean? Could be the reason the white nerd is so interested in people with warped time. New plot opening up right in front of us!

    One thing ticked me off though. Didn’t he JUST say it would be safer to destroy the diary? Now he makes it a vessel for an ancient power and has to carry it around with him like the sigil he put the tree and the stone snake in. This is bound to backfire somehow! Carry some jewelry! An earring, a diadem, a bracelet… don’t just use whatever if you already planned to embrace it somewhere in the first place! Or can he sort of embrace the diary into some pocket dimension inventory? Well, I guess, Raon can keep it for him.

    Poor Duchess, though. She is probably really worried and quite powerless and angry right now. I wonder what might come of this. Will she exercise her authority to ground him? xD Might be cute. Also, did Lily just break out of whatever room she was locked up in and came even faster than her mother? This kid is as scary as the others. (>_>)”

    Next time will be fun, too. Choi Han being forced to act for some scheme is always hilarious and Alberu will just make it even better. I have high hopes for low performance and grreat entertainment!

    My theory is OG KRS is one of a Thames family and why Thames gone because of WS cursed after snatching OG KRS body and Drew saw this that’s why Drew offered by God of death to split her power and reincarnate on Earth so there’s way to defeat WS I presume if Cale agree to know ‘way to defeat death’ in thos divine book god of death probably asked him to find this power.
    Well, I’m looking forward to the next chapter

    The author really is great and mighty. 😆 Those poetic things about fate and present is true. The only thing that can change someone’s fate is during the present time. I wonder what is this AP about the present and innate fate, how it will be used in the future?

    Drew feeling sad about how she was the only one left in her family… Did someone in the past had predicted what will happen to Thames that is why she kind of knew?

    Haha, Alberu wanted to compete for the best actor in dying awards 🤣

    Thank you for the chapter. 💓

    Cale questioned it, but had no choice other than to ask the conclusion he came to in his mind.

    “…I pass because of my looks?”

    – My goodness!

    The voice that sounded like a person in their mid to late teens shouted as if she didn’t know what to do.

    – So cute! Look at how grumpy you look while asking if you pass because of your looks! You’re such a little cutie!

    “…My goodness.”

    – I CAN’T WITH THIS MOTHER!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I think there is a good possibility that White Star’s soul was reincarnated into the body of a Thames family member.
    However, Drew said you need to be a family member to use the power properly. ‘Properly’ for me being a key word.
    You give me a knife or sword right now, sure I could use it, but not ‘properly’ or with any skill.

    If he was born into that family, I think they would have recognised his soul and executed some backup plans. Plans Drew may not have been included in due to her power or fate.
