Getting Away From The Hunter - Chapter 1
Translator and Editor: Gina and Tea
A spring breeze blew. Flowers rained down from the line of trees. There, under the large acacia tree of Bell Academy, two men faced one another.
A man with a clear figure of an adult and a boy who looked somehow gaunt. However, despite his clearly sick condition, the boy couldn’t hide his cute and beautiful features.
Excitement vibrated back and forth between the eyes of the two people looking at each other.
The sky was dizzyingly clear, and at every breath, a fragrant scent touched the tip of his nose. At that moment, if the air had color, anyone could bet it would resemble a spring flower in full bloom.
The day was perfectly romantic as if lifted from a painting. It was the perfect time to confess to someone. So the boy decided to be brave.
“I like you.”
The blunt confession was cute and fresh coming from his lips.
Platinum blonde hair fluttered in the wind. Transparent skin glowed in the sunlight. Sweet pink eyes like candy. With a shy smile on his lips, he was a pretty boy who seemed to have been born from all the harmless things in the world.
“It’s been like that since the first time I saw you.”
Thump. Unable to bear the intensity, his head lowered. The heart he spat out tickled, and he tapped the ground with his toe. At first glance, the back of his neck seemed to have turned red…
As if bewitched by his lovely appearance, the man receiving the boy’s confession called his name. As if embarrassed, he couldn’t make eye contact.
Cough, cough. The other party was awkwardly coughing loudly. Glancing furtively to the side with his head slightly raised, the boy noticed the man’s ears were slightly red.
I caught you~
At the clear green light, the boy, Ravi, smiled in satisfaction. The meanness he couldn’t hide flashed across his face for a second before assuming his shy mask once more.
Pheeew Ravi decided to stop holding his breath at this point. If the man saw him that red, he would have thought he was shy, thus, he would have thought Ravi was cute.
But now, shall I stop pounding the wedges? Again, the boy wearing an innocent boy mask continued his confession.
“I can’t do anything because I only think of you!”
It was a lie. Ravi had already made four confessions this month alone. He had dated four men four times, and he was dumped all four times. 444 is an ominous number. Therefore, he had to change it quickly. However, he absolutely did not want this confession to become 555.
“How about you?”
This time, he really wanted to be a couple.
Please! Anyone is fine!!
“Can you tell me that you feel the same way?”
He looked up, thinking of all kinds of cuteness he could in order to make the cutest expression ever. Ravi knew very well how adorable he looked from this angle.
Staring at that face, the man reached his hand toward him.
I like you too. In context, it was time for such words to emerge from his mouth. However…
What came out of the hesitating man’s mouth was not a confession, but an apology. Ravi lowered his head as if he couldn’t look at the man’s face. The hand that nearly reached Ravi’s shoulder dropped without touching him.
“I, I slept with your Hyung.”
Who did you sleep with? What he had thought was only in his mind popped out of his mouth.
“Who did you sleep with?”
The voice asking such a question was quite dreary. The corners of his mouth that had been smiling shyly until just now sank coldly. The perfect world that seemed to come out of a painting until a moment ago became a vortex at the bottom of the ocean sucking everything in its path.
“The- the roommate you live with. You know, the sexy Hyung who majors in design.”
The man replied right away with no sign of embarrassment.
A sexy Hyung you live with.
The face of a hateful person flashed through Ravi’s head. A languidly handsome man with bright blonde hair and clear sky-like blue eyes.
Seyr. That motherf*cker!
Ravi ground his teeth. If the opponent was that man, he knew the level of ‘sleep’ behind those words.
[tl:n Meaning they had hot steamy sex lol]
“It’s okay. I can overlook a one-night stand mistake.”
For a brief moment, he lost his composure, but that was all. Ravi didn’t seek his partners out of morality anyway. Whether he banged with someone or not and weighed on his conscience, Ravi didn’t care as long as that partner just nodded and said he would date him.
“I’m sorry. No matter what, I will never forget that night! I…”
Unaware of Ravi’s thoughts, the man in front of him blushed.
“I guess I like him.”
He didn’t stop there, but he confessed his unrequited love to the person who had just confessed to him.
What?! You like him?!
As the last string of reasoning cut off, Ravi felt a pang of defeat. He knew nothing else could be said after spending a lustful night without an inch of purity.
“Does that make sense? You were flirting with me. How can you fall for him in one night!”
Even reeds can take more than you!
The last words he couldn’t bear to say lingered in his mind.
“Hey, it’s a bit… comparing Hyung with you is… it’s different. He’s special but you…”
The man kindly compared the two, as if he hadn’t decided yet if he would reject the confession.
“A bit, ordinary.”
At such an acrimonious assessment, Ravi was at a loss for words.
The phrase, which did not match him at all, echoed and lingered in his ears. The loud and harsh sound of his pride cracking reverberated in his mind. In the meantime, the other person, having finished what he had to say, said, “Goodbye then,” and left.
He should be cursing inside his head nonstop, but he couldn’t. He was experiencing firsthand what it was to be speechless because of the tumult of words piling up to go out.
Shaaah~ A strong wind blew. The flying petals slapped him in the face.
A good day to confess my *ss. It was his own delusion that things were going well.
With this, Ravi’s fifth confession went into the sewers.
It went from 444 to 555.
Tok, tok, tok. The sound of angry footsteps drew closer.
I’m sure it’s not coming this wa– The door swung open before he could even finish his thought.
A shout similar to a lion’s roar rumbled inside the room.
The gazes of a man and a woman tangled on the bed were fixed on him.
Look at this f*cking bastard!
As soon as the door opened, dense air poured in, and the uninvited guest, Ravi’s stomach churned. It was disgusting that he was going through a time of need, but even more disgusting was that the person who provoked it was having a good time.
“Is sex all about a fucking hole now?!”
“I- I’m sorry!”
He didn’t mean her, but the woman who was in part of the happy time apologized and ran away.
“What is it? Did you get dumped again?”
In contrast, the man on the bed didn’t even blink. He didn’t even mind the girl who ran away, he was just a bit annoyed. The blonde man wiped his damp hands roughly on the sheet and pulled out a cigarette from the bedside table.
“I told you not to touch the one I picked! Keep some boundaries. I don’t have anything to eat, or should I just eat all the drool you left on top of it?!”
Ravi followed behind him and shot at him. Whether he was listening or not, the blonde man looked for a lighter, found it and lit a cigarette. His bare chest swelled and fuuu~ sank with smoke escaping from his mouth.
“What are you talking about? Who did I leave my saliva on?”
Because of the white smoke spreading, the man’s eyes dropped languidly. He was just smoking a cigarette, but Ravi couldn’t take his eyes off him as if watching something extraordinary.
Suddenly, he remembered the words of the man who refused his confession, and his mouth was bitter. Ravi didn’t want to admit it but looking at him, it was obvious he was more charming than himself. However, that did not justify taking other people’s things.
“You don’t even remember who?! You dare touch what’s mine like that!”
Ravi’s pupils were torn vertically at that irresponsible act. The lovely pink eyes blazed like a burning star as if representing the anger that made his heart pound wildly. It was an appearance you couldn’t find on any normal human, no matter who saw it.
“Who was it?”
As if responding, Seyr’s eyes blazed brightly blue. A blue flame flashed around the vertically torn pupils. As he revealed his presence, the air surrounding Ravi weighed heavily on his shoulders.
Flinching, Ravi quickly calmed when confronted with the power difference that he could not even face. It took only three seconds for his anger to subside and he looked down at the floor. Ravi was not ashamed of this fact. For a powerless small citizen, good anger management was the only way to survive.
“No, I mean…”
Of course, his resentment wasn’t resolved right away so he wanted to keep arguing but Ravi was unable to remember the name of the man he just confessed to. It was because he got confused about who the man was since he had tried to date five people at once.
“You know! That one majoring in architecture! He! The one with a good body! Tall guy!”
Oh, I forgot the name again. Of course, as Ravi tried to describe the man roughly from what he remembered of him, Seyr looked at him as if waiting for a punchline.
“How can I know from that? Next time write his name on your forehead!”
“You just don’t touch guys! Are you going to take responsibility if I starve to death?!”
Don’t you have morals?!
He ended up exploding while trying to share a fundamental solution over again. Of course, it was in vain to say it to a person who had more right now.
“There’s no such thing for demons.”
However, Seyr was looking at Ravi as if asking where that dog bark came from. There was not a single word of sincerity in his words as he spat out more smoke. The blurred blue eyes had returned to their original state and showed his interest in the conversation as a dead frozen man.
“Dirty bastard demon.”
Seyr gave a refreshing counterattack to the vulgar words.
“Yeah, you too.”
Ravi looked at the distant horizon with frustrated eyes. Right… a demon too. Living by sucking vital energy and lust from humans. Unlike Seyr, Ravi was a weak demon, but not pathetic enough to roll up his tail in three seconds as he did today. At least it was like that when they were outside this world.
Ravi had looked away, and now turned around and examined the Ravi in the mirror. Eyes that were hollowed due to lack of proper predation for several months, and short platinum blonde hair greeted him. The pink eyes traveled down to the chest area and a small sigh escaped Ravi’s plump lips.
A pair of tightly bound breasts made her look like a man in anyone’s eyes. Even after half a year had passed, Ravi still couldn’t adapt to her appearance in the mirror.
“I mean why did you have to put such books there?!”
Whenever she recalled the reason for this situation, the infinite anger naturally went to the source. A book. It was all because of that shameless Seyr’s book. She opened it just once and the damn book swallowed her completely without letting go. Suddenly, she found herself trapped inside one of Seyr’s books.
Being trapped inside the book itself wasn’t a big deal. That’s right. Anyone could end up being trapped and living inside a novel once in their lives.
The problem was the genre.
To survive here, Ravi had to thoroughly hide her true identity because–
“Among all the books in the world, why! Just why did it have to be BL!!?”
In this place women liked men, and men liked men, too. Since it was a BL novel.
Hi! Gina here~ So~ two things: Firstly, a new project yay~ I hope you guys like it. For a +19 novel, the start was quite funny and not at all smut-like, right? Well, let’s wait for the next chapters kekeke
Secondly, it may be weird to read that Ravi is referred to as a guy and suddenly is a girl, right? Well, it’s because the writer did it on purpose. Pronouns in Korean are quite tricky, so if you’re not sure, it can be a guy or a girl or whatever. I tried my best to convey what the author wanted to. I hope that you guys can understand it, and that it’s not too confusing while reading.
Aside from that, I hope you guys like it! Please keep supporting our site, and don’t forget to rate our projects on NU! Thank you as always!
