Qin Kaiyi felt like he was almost dead.
He lay on his back on the bed, expressionlessly counting the patterns on the ceiling, and felt that he was a deep-fried dough stick. His muscles were so stiff that he could not move.
Ah, maybe he was going to die. Qin Kaiyi sorrowfully thought that being done to death by Shen Feixiao still counted as being personally killed by Shen Feixiao… then was it possible for him to consider choosing this method to die? Although this kind of death was indeed a bit ugly…
“Shixiong.” Shen Feixiao’s voice came from the door. He pushed open the door, holding a bowl of black medicine in his hand. “Drink the medicine.”
“…” Qin Kaiyi wanted to reject Shen Feixiao’s good intentions. However, he knew that even if he refused, such rejection to Shen Feixiao would just be superfluous words. He was too lazy to speak.
Shen Feixiao saw Qin Kaiyi not speaking or showing displeasure. He stepped forward to lift Qin Kaiyi from lying on the bed and pressed the medicine to the side of Qin Kaiyi’s mouth.
“Shen Feixiao,” Qin Kaiyi opened his mouth softly, and his voice carried obvious hoarseness, “Is it that you particularly hate me?”
“Why does shixiong say this?” Shen Feixiao didn’t react to Qin Kaiyi’s provocation, and still looked expressionless. “It couldn’t be that what I feel towards shixiong, shixiong doesn’t know?”
“…” Qin Kaiyi was speechless.
“Someone broke into the formation a few days ago.” Shen Feixiao saw that Qin Kaiyi still didn’t have the will to speak, and suddenly smiled. “I don’t know if shixiong has the intention to meet the unexpected guest?”
After listening to Shen Feixiao’s words, Qin Kaiyi’s heart skipped a beat. There was no doubt… The unexpected guest Shen Feixiao spoke of was Yan Gu, who wanted to save him!
“What did you do to him?” Qin Kaiyi’s expression suddenly became nervous.
“Nothing.” Shen Feixiao looked at Qin Kaiyi’s nervous expression, and suddenly smiled again. “Shixiong, please drink the medicine obediently.”
So Qin Kaiyi submitted to humiliation and drank his medicine.
Shen Feixiao gently looked at Qin Kaiyi wrinkling his face and drinking the bowl of medicine clean, then said, “Does shixiong want to see that visitor?”
“I can see him?” Qin Kaiyi didn’t think Shen Feixiao had any good intentions. He stared suspiciously at Shen Feixiao. “Are you sure?”
“Of course I’m sure,” Shen Feixiao said as he picked up a plum and put it in Qin Kaiyi’s mouth. “As long as shixiong does not escape, I will not do anything to shixiong.”
“…” I didn’t think to escape yesterday. Qin Kaiyi’s mouth twitched.
As if he understood what Qin Kaiyi’s expression meant, Shen Feixiao’s gaze let slip a strange emotion. “Shixiong, I went too far yesterday. But I promise I will never be like this to you in the future.” — —I have done everything I can; if you still decide to leave, then I can only…
“En.” Qin Kaiyi wasn’t in the mood to exchange more words with Shen Feixiao. What happened yesterday was still vivid in his mind. Although he strongly suppressed the fear in his heart, he couldn’t break away from the trembling that penetrated his very soul.
Touching the bowl in his hand, Shen Feixiao saw that Qin Kaiyi was silent again. He got up and left, and went directly to the room where a certain person was locked in.
And that certain fire spirit who was caught was severely disdaining himself at this time–as a ten thousand year old monster, he was easily captured by a cultivator who was under a hundred years old. This was a bit too dismal, so Yan Gu had to seriously reflect on whether his skills had declined due to laziness…
“Your name is Yan Gu?” Shen Feixiao opened the door and spoke when he saw Yan Gu, who was locked in iron chains. His expression carried a bit of malicious mockery. “On what basis would you think to rescue Qin Shi?”
“… What’s wrong with me?” Yan Gu felt anger when he saw Shen Feixiao; he knew exactly how Qin Kaiyi treated him in his heart.
“It’s nothing.” Shen Feixiao was still holding the bowl for Qin Kaiyi’s medicine. He casually placed it on the table, and then sat next to the table. He expressionlessly watched Yan Gu, who had continuously been glaring at him.
“I used the Feng Shen on Qin Shi.” As if talking about something that didn’t matter, Shen Feixiao said lightly, “You should know what it is.”
“What????” Yan Gu was dumbstruck when he heard it. Of course he knew exactly what Feng Shen was used for–thinking of the most important effect of the Feng Shen, this Gu had many more benefits for Qin Kaiyi than for Shen Feixiao. Unless…
“I don’t expect him to like me.” Shen Feixiao’s gaze was a bit disordered. “At this point, I still don’t know what I want.”
“What on earth… is wrong with you?” Yan Gu looked at Shen Feixiao strangely.
“He dislikes me very much.” It was unclear what Shen Feixiao was thinking; he smiled indifferently. “Maybe he even hates me very much. If he wants, I can turn my back on the world for him. Unfortunately, he never has needed this.”
“… Shen Feixiao what on earth is wrong with you?” Yan Gu even more felt that there was something off about Shen Feixiao.
“All he needs is to leave this world.” Shen Feixiao’s indifferent look made Yan Gu’s heart tremble. “Because this world is not reality for him at all.”
“… Are you crazy?” Yan Gu blurted out.
“Ah, probably,” Shen Feixiao said with a smile, “I also feel that I’m very crazy.”
Yan Gu stopped talking. He really didn’t know what Shen Feixiao meant.
“Actually, I didn’t have any other intentions in catching you.” Shen Feixiao sighed and said, “I just want you to send one message to Qin Shi.”
“What message?” Yan Gu didn’t believe that Shen Feixiao would be so kind.
“You tell him,” Shen Feixiao’s tone was serious and severe, “now that the Feng Shen has been used, my life is connected with his life.”
“… you.” Yan Gu wanted to ask Shen Feixiao why he didn’t say it himself.
“He wouldn’t believe me.” Shen Feixiao revealed an exhausted expression. “He might even think I’m just scaring him.”
“So?” Yan Gu still didn’t understand Shen Feixiao’s purpose.
“So, what I said, just obediently go ahead and do it.” Restraining all of his emotions, Shen Feixiao stood up and looked down at Yan Gu. “Otherwise, you will die here. As for that urn of ashes you carry…”
“You!” Yan Gu didn’t expect Shen Feixiao to threaten him with that thing.
“If you don’t talk nonsense, you still have a chance to bring it back.” Shen Feixiao waved his hand, and then turned around and walked out. He left Yan Gu trembling all over, staring at Shen Feixiao’s back.
In fact, in this world, everyone had something he was desperate and worried about. For Qin Kaiyi, he was most desperate at the idea of not being able to return home. For Shen Feixiao, he was most desperate at what the eggplant had learned from Tang Shayun’s spiritual knowledge.
Those pictures completely broke Shen Feixiao’s understanding, and had him make up his mind to give Qin Kaiyi the Feng Shen. Today, the Shen Feixiao who had obtained everything discovered that what he could do was only this meager.
Just like watching Qin Kaiyi fall into the magma, just like being kicked by Qin Kaiyi off the cliff, just like that helplessness at watching him leave time and time again, the methods Shen Feixiao had to make Qin Kaiyi stay were so meager that it chilled his heart.
Shen Feixiao had already vaguely guessed what Qin Kaiyi’s purpose was for everything he did from what he gathered in Tang Shayun’s mind. But even if he knew, what could he do?
Nothing, nothing at all. Shen Feixiao raised his head and looked indifferently at the clear and sunny sky. The scene from yesterday of Qin Kaiyi underneath him, tossing about in bed and begging for his forgiveness and mercy, appeared before his eyes. The corners of his mouth pulled into a grotesque smile.
Then, I gave you the opportunity to leave. Can you harden your heart? My dearly beloved shixiong…
After Shen Feixiao left, Qin Kaiyi slept again.
But the quality of this sleep was not high. Qin Kaiyi kept dreaming of strange things, so that when he woke up there was cold sweat all over his body.
“Qin Shi?” A familiar voice came from outside the door. Qin Kaiyi froze, and then said in a hoarse voice, “Yan Gu?”
Sure enough, it was Yan Gu. The fire spirit, still wearing red clothes, pushed open the door and entered. His face changed instantly when he saw Qin Kaiyi lying on the bed.
“Why are you…” That head of black hair actually became snow-white. Yan Gu was just about to ask something, when he remembered what Shen Feixiao said to him… It turned out that when the Feng Shen entered the body, the hair would really turn white.
“Ah, long time no see.” Qin Kaiyi didn’t know what to say to Yan Gu now they were both prisoners. Even if they used their spiritual knowledge to speak with each other, Shen Feixiao might overhear.
“… It seems that I don’t have the ability to save you.” Yan Gu bitterly laughed. “Have you… been living well?”
In fact, Yan Gu asked this question but didn’t need Qin Kaiyi’s answer at all. He looked at Qin Kaiyi’s haggard face and knew clearly that Qin Kaiyi hadn’t been well.
Fortunately, Qin Kaiyi didn’t care too much, and he responded casually, “Not bad.”
Yan Gu noticed the bruises on Qin Kaiyi’s body at this time. He pursed his lips and wanted to say something, but he held back.
“You should go.” Knowing that Yan Gu wouldn’t be of much help to him, Qin Kaiyi didn’t want him to waste time on him again. “I’m fine.”
“Feng Shen is a Gu.” Although he didn’t know why Shen Feixiao wanted him to say these words, in Yan Gu’s view the Feng Shen would give Qin Kaiyi many advantages and no harm. “Shen Feixiao dares not hurt you. If he hurts you, he will use his life to pay it back.”
“What?” Qin Kaiyi didn’t react for a while.
“What I mean is.” Yan Gu looked at Qin Kaiyi, who was in a daze, and couldn’t help but comfort him, “Shen Feixiao’s life is now connected with yours. If you die, then he too cannot live.”
“… What if he dies?” It was unclear what Qin Kaiyi thought of; his face instantly paled. “Then will I also…”
“Yes.” Yan Gu noticed Qin Kaiyi’s abnormality. “What’s wrong with you? Why is your complexion so ugly?”
“…” Qin Kaiyi stopped talking. At this moment, a terrible idea appeared in his heart, but he didn’t dare to be sure yet. He could only shakingly ask: “… When Shen Feixiao said this to you, did he say anything else?”
“He…” Yan Gu considered for a moment then said, “He also said something very strange.”
“What is it?” The hoarseness of Qin Kaiyi’s own voice even made him feel afraid.
“He said… this world is not reality for you?” Yan Gu looked at Qin Kaiyi and said, “It seems he said that.”
“…” He knew. Qin Kaiyi’s vision went black, and he felt as if blood rushed up his throat. Fear, like madly growing wild grass, buried his entire body–Shen Feixiao knew what he wanted to do!!!
It’s been a little while since the last update. Work has been terribly busy. I probably won’t be able to spend as much time on this website as before for a long while :’X
