Qin Kaiyi, who experienced various events many years later, couldn’t forget the image of Shen Feixiao crawling toward him from beyond the precipice. Qin Kaiyi’s mood was very conflicted. He was so conflicted that he had the impulse to turn around, disregarding everything, and leave. Only the bit of reason he had left stayed his movements. Qin Kaiyi clenched one hand into a fist, and his nails bit deep into his flesh.
At the moment when he saw Shen Feixiao’s first hand reaching the edge of the flat ground, Qin Kaiyi seemed to hear the sound of a chord snapping apart in his heart. He forced apathy onto his face, and finally extended his foot and stepped hard on that hand.
“… Shixiong.” Shen Feixiao’s expression couldn’t be considered surprised. He raised his head in silence, watching Qin Kaiyi’s movement: “What are you doing?”
Many words appeared in front of Qin Kaiyi’s eyes. Those blood-red words made even breathing difficult. He remained silent for a long time, so long that even Shen Feixiao showed some doubt. Only then did Qin Kaiyi open his mouth gently: “Shen Feixiao, being this kind of born bastard, what right do you have to be in the Lingshan Sect?”
At the moment when this sentence was spoken, Qin Kaiyi couldn’t describe the expression he saw on Shen Feixiao. That still immature face filled with hatred and anger, and his pupils began to suffuse with a thick purple color. That strange tint stopped up Qin Kaiyi’s breathing.
“What did you say?” Shen Feixiao’s voice was stiff.
That reddening color in front of him became even more eye piercing. Qin Kaiyi closed his eyes so that he could harden his heart, and continued in an incomparably cold tone: “Don’t you understand what I am talking about? Haha… Shen Feixiao, a mixed breed bastard like you matched with the Lingshan Sect? It really stains the clean reputation of the Lingshan Sect… Qing Xuzi is old and confused, but I’m very clear about things. That sable of mine was stolen by you right? These kinds of petty crimes, do you often commit them?”
Shen Feixiao was completely silent, as if he could no longer feel the hands that Qin Kaiyi had already stepped bloody. He only stared at Qin Kaiyi, who looked down at him, and his stare was so fierce that it was like a man-eating beast’s.
“So… obediently die…” After finishing his lines, Qin Kaiyi kicked hard on Shen Feixiao’s shoulder, making the hand Shen Feixiao grasped the cliff with loosen further.
Without magical power, a twelve-year-old kid was a lamb to be slaughtered in front of him. Qin Kaiyi numbly kicked Shen Feixiao hard over and over, watching Shen Feixiao’s mouth overflow with bright red blood.
“Qin Shi.” Opening his mouth to let out a hoarse voice, Shen Feixiao’s expression was mournful to the extreme: “You better wish… I have died, otherwise, I will make your life worse than death!!!” The sound of his voice just fell when Shen Feixiao’s body couldn’t bear it anymore, and the hand gripping the cliff loosened, bringing the Sky South Bamboo along with Shen Feixiao into the hell-like abyss.
At the same time, Qin Kaiyi heard the long-lost system sound.
[System prompt: Complete the system-stipulated tasks and lines, and get 10% return value. The current return value is 17.5%. Complete the system-stipulated tasks and lines, and get 10% return value. The current return value is 17.5%]
“…” Qin Kaiyi didn’t speak. He stumbled towards the edge of the cliff, watching Shen Feixiao’s figure change from big to small, and finally turn into a black dot, completely disappearing into the sea of clouds.
“Shen Feixiao… Ah!” The sudden push on his back destabilized Qin Kaiyi, making him directly take a step into empty space, and he fell off the overhanging cliff with Shen Feixiao. The originally life-saving hand seal seemed to have no effect.
At the last moment in Qin Kaiyi’s fall, he saw a touch of purple appearing on the edge of the cliff. He smiled bitterly… The sable was so smart!
Qin Kaiyi could hardly understand those who are obsessed with bungee jumping. He felt… that if he could, he wouldn’t want to experience the feeling of falling off a cliff in his lifetime again. That kind of blood rushing towards his feet, head chilled to freezing sort of feeling had Qin Kaiyi pathetically fainting the moment he crashed into a pool of water.
After the coma, Qin Kaiyi had a long dream. In the dream, he kept repeating the scene of him kicking and kicking Shen Feixiao. He looked at Shen Feixiao’s loathing and pained gaze, feeling that his whole body was becoming cold, really… so cold.
Don’t look at me like that, Qin Kaiyi shouted with pain in his heart. But the movements of his foot couldn’t stop at all; he could only kick Shen Feixiao’s body again and again. Grinding the hands holding onto the cliff, the evil words leaving his mouth were like sharp knives piercing Shen Feixiao’s heart and slashing his own into a bloody mess. Only at this moment did Qin Kaiyi truly, truly regret—-1if he had the opportunity to return to his original world, he would definitely revise everything he had written. It turned out that when he was tapping on his keyboard, laidback, there was someone confronting torture worse than death… Shen Feixiao, the you who has been cursed as a mixed-breed bastard must hate me a lot? No matter… I will quickly let you get your revenge. Wait until you have grown strong, then you can step on me.
This chaotic dream caused Qin Kaiyi to suffer to the extreme. He struggled to gasp in breaths until the moment he opened his eyes, when he saw a sky full of starlight.
The many stars decorated the black summer sky with incredible beauty, and matched with that disc of crescent moon, it was like the most gorgeous silk wrapping the whole world layer by layer. Qin Kaiyi lay on the shore soaking wet. He smiled bitterly and stretched out his hand to wipe his face: “Actually didn’t die… It seems that jumping off a cliff without issue, this scientific law… It doesn’t only work on the protagonist’s body.”
“You actually didn’t die.” Yan Gu’s languid voice appeared in his ear: “I was just thinking I needed to change to someone else again.”
“… Do you dare to speak the language of humans?” Qin Kaiyi was speechless.
“I’m afraid you wouldn’t understand if I spoke the human language,” Yan Gu’s poisonous tongue said.
“… You won.” Qin Kaiyi slowly got up from the ground and pulled out clean clothes from his ring: “Did you see Shen Feixiao?”
“… I think Shen Feixiao must be your own son. You don’t have to explain it.” Yan Gu, hearing that Qin Kaiyi’s first sentence was actually this, lost strength in his entire body.
“Did you see him?” Qin Kaiyi keenly felt something wrong in Yan Gu’s tone.
“Look to your right.” Yan Gu snorted coldly: “You can see his decaying corpse.”
“…” Qin Kaiyi was speechless again; Yan Gu did have some strong opinions about Shen Feixiao …
He didn’t pay attention to Yan Gu anymore, and decided to go to the river first to search… to take a look and see if Shen Feixiao’s body or something was there ╮╭
