Chapter 9 – Second Act [Endless Night by Lyse]

Endless Night || Heartless City Sequel


Chapter Nine – Second Act

Soo-min winced and shifted slightly against the car seat. The tenderness of her skin from her recent tattooing experience was a constant throb. The tattoo was situated high up on her inner thigh, and unless someone was peeking up her skirt, it wouldn’t be visible to others. The tattoo was still fresh enough that her skin felt rubbed raw. She hadn’t even bothered to closely examine it, just slapped a bandage over it, but not before catching a glimpse of the crimson petals spiraling along her skin. Objectively speaking, it was an exquisite work of art, but what it represented made her itch to claw it off.

Chapter Seven – Gambit

 Paksa Adeul turned and looked at Soo-min. She stood directly facing him, her usually expressive eyes hooded. The only sign of her emotions were the two bright spots of color riding on her cheekbones in her otherwise pale face. The new speed at which she could now harness her emotions unsettled him. Where had that expressive girl gone? Her unexpected proposal had thrown him off balance, and it cost him precious seconds to regain himself; seconds she was more than willing to take advantage of as she moved quickly to press her case.

Chapter Four – Extraction

Kim Hyun-soo’s hand froze in his inner jacket pocket where he concealed the syringe he’d picked up off the ground as the young woman recovered from her attack. He withdrew his fingers and straightened his spine as he regarded her with interest. Since he had only arrived in Seoul two days ago, the first time he set foot in the city in five years, the girl had to be someone from his past.  Her hair was tangled around her cheeks and half-covered her face, making it difficult for him to make out her features, although he could see the promise of delicate beauty in the curve of her jaw, but as she lifted a trembling hand to pull her hair behind her ear – he subconsciously noted the myriad of cuts decorating it – his eyes widened in recognition.

Chapter 2 – Fever Dream

Dreams in the dusk,

Only dreams closing the day

And with the day’s close going back

To the gray things, the dark things,

The far, deep things of dreamland.


Dreams, only dreams in the dusk,

Only the old remembered pictures

Of lost days when the day’s loss

Wrote in tears the heart’s loss.


Tears and loss and broken dreams

May find your heart at dusk.

Endless Night Chapter 1 [By Lyse]


And here’s chapter one of the series ‘Endless Night’ by Lyse telling the story that happens after Heartless City. Fan of the series or not, this is a story you definitely want to follow! The synopsis-with a minor change is given ahead again so read on and enjoy folks!  `Akiko


It’s been five years since the tragic final act that ended in blood, betrayal, and death. A new drug is filtering through the city’s underbelly and leaving a trail of death in its wake. From abroad, the man known as Doctor’s Son is facing the threat of usurpation from within the walls of the empire he has built, as the organization he’s vowed to destroy turns his own weapons against him. To come out the victor, Jung Shi-Hyun  will have no choice but to request the help of those from his past, in particular a young woman who is haunted by nightmares and walks her own deadly path.

It is a race against time as love lines are reformed, alliances made, betrayals discovered, and the dead are avenged.

Story I – Chapter V [Part II]

For all previous parts, go here

For Chapter V, Part I, go here.


Uther’s news as they sat face to face on the breakfast table just confirmed Ian’s worst fears. The boy’s family was already in an uproar trying to locate Su Ae and the only reason they hadn’t found her yet was because Ian had redone his spell last night and Uther hadn’t volunteered any information to them. But the fact that they were the best hunters of their generation was not soothing either and sooner or later, they would find something. Coupled with the fact that the town would soon have many new visitors trying to locate Su Ae too, the situation seemed to be heading from bad to worse. As Ian tried to wrap his mind around the scenario and Annie tried to make sense of things by connecting the dots, silence reigned supreme. It was only broken when Annie rose to retrieve the coffee pot and pour Ian more coffee before she sat down next to Uther and voiced her queries.
