Chapter 36: His Status (3)
Ye Yu snapped out her trance when she heard the youth’s voice, hurriedly letting go of his hands.
She looked down to see a dazzling and bright red on his originally snow-white wrist.
Yet, the youth didn’t even care and asked again, “You already… found out?”
Ye Yu looked up and she calmed down, saying, “Mhm, I know everything that I should and shouldn’t know.”
This time, of the two to become quiet, it was the youth standing by Ye Yu’s side.
After a while, he asked with conflicting emotions, saying in a slightly hoarse voice, “…Can I do it?”
Ye Yu knew better than anyone what the other party was referring to.
6 years ago, within the devil palace, the former Devil Emperor and Devil Empress as well as the young brothers all died in Xuan Bin’s hands.
Besides witnessing his family and closed ones being slaughtered, he even witnessed the countless residences within the devil city who had been supporting the old Devil Emperor being massacred in one night. After that, his cultivation had been ruined and the channels in his body connecting the essence qi had been broken. He became an useless person who couldn’t cultivate and a puppet youth emperor threatened by Xuan Bin.
Within time, the youth in front of her might not care if he had killed the 3,000 people within the Ye Residence and he would become the ruthless, sinister, and heartless Devil Emperor, Xuan Bin. But right now, standing in front of her, was just a 15-16 years old child who hasn’t done anything evil yet.
A child who carried the burden of deep-seated hatred caused by a blood debt was asking her if his revenge plan not yet launched would work…
Ye Yu laughed bitterly.
If there weren’t the “plot seriously deviating from storyline” and the exclamation marks on the system notification, she probably could’ve nodded without feeling guilty.
Xuan Yi seemed to have realized something from Ye Yu’s silence and he bit his lips, looking down.
So, he couldn’t?
Even if he endured all the injustices alone in order to launch his revenge pla… he still couldn’t do it/
But the only reason why he was still alive was because he felt the need to slaughter his enemies in order to avenge his family. If it was fated that he would fail… what was the point of living?
All sorts of conflicting emotions flickered in the youth’s eyes and just when his anger couldn’t be controlled, he suddenly felt a warmness on his head.
Xuan Yi froze and then looked up, stunned. The woman who was only taller than him by half an inch was withdrawing her arm which was patting his head and she was staring at him with her clear and bright smiling peach blossom eyes.
“After all, I had picked you up. In the future, I will protect you. As long as I’m here, no one can stop you from doing what you want.”
Ye Yu slightly paused and then said this in a solemn voice, “I will help you obtain anything you want.”
Under this comforting atmosphere, Xuan Yi who felt unrestrained and extremely infuriated gradually calmed down.
Moments later, he looked to the side and asked, “…Anything?”
Ye Yu nodded.
“Getting revenge is something I need to do by myself and I’ll do my best to obtain anything I want too.”
“Then what do you want?”
“…” Xuan Yi lifted his head and looked at her, his pitch-black eyes were slightly sparkling. “Before I meet my goal, just stay by myself. This is the only thing I want.”
Meeting the incomparably serious-looking eyes, Ye Yu was stunned. Right now, she realized that she had neglected something even more important.
Because of her sudden appearance in this world, it seemed like she had influenced 《Night isn’t evil》’s plot, making it deviate from its storyline. It seemed like the role that she was replacing…seemed to be the female lead?
Ye Yu was flabbergasted.
With a fluke mind, Ye Yu tested the youth, “Maybe, you know a lady named Yun Hua?”
Xuan Yi was confused and then shook his head, saying, “I don’t know her.”
Before Ye Yu could say anything else, Xuan Yi knitted his eyebrows unhappily, saying, “Didn’t you say that you will help me get anything I want? I don’t want anything else as long as you’re by my side.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
There seemed to be something wrong with the development of the new plot.
